The newspapers have a story of Commodore Vanderbilt “ seeing” a blackleg’s bluff at poker and going a $30,000 steamboat better, but this is hardly up to an affair of which we recollect of reading long since in a Mississippi paper: In the days when the Hon. George Poindexter represented the State in the Federal Senate, say some tbirty-five years ago, before the time of the railroads, he started from Natchez by an up river boat, on his way te Washington. The Ag ricultural Bank, having a heavy deposit to make in one of the Pittsbugb banks, entrusted the money to his charge. Before many hours elapsed, some of the sport ing fraternity were making up a little game, and invited the Senator to take a band, to which, nothing loath, be consented. The game ran about the usual course of such things, while the professionals were taking the measure of their intended victim, and guessing at the size of bis pile. When those points were settled to their satisfaction, the business began in earnest. An overpowering hand was dealt to Mr. Poin dexter, upon which be made a small bet, the others passed, with one exception, who “saw him” and went a thousand dollars better. To this he responded with another thousand better, when the gambler replied, “I see your thousand dollars and go thirty thousand dollars better”— for perceiving that his customer was pretty flush, be did not dare risk a few thousand. Poindexter replied that that was more money than he had, but he would put up his pile, which entitled him to a sight. This the other denied to be the law. “Certainly,” said Mr. P., “I always understand that a gentleman has a right to a show for his money.” “ Not unless it is stipulated before hand ;” and the gambler appealed to the “ gentlemen” present, who sustained him. “Come,” said the ruffian, throwing down a well-filled pocket-book, and laying his watch on the table, “ I go thirty thousand dollars better, and give you five minutes to raise the money." Poindexter bid him count bis money ; and there it was, sure enough, in good bills. “ Well,” said he, rising. “ I will see if I can find any friends who will furnish the funds,” and be passed into the ladies’ cabin, in which was his stateroom. He lingered sometime, and as the hand was nearing the last minute, returned quickly, took bis seat, drew a bulky pocket-book from his breast, and laying it upon the table, calmly said : “ Sir, I see your thirty thousand dollars, and go a hundred and twenty thousand dollars bet ter, and give you five minutes to raise the money.” It was the turn of the astonished gambler to call for a count, but before Mr. Poindexter got through with the hundred and fifty thousand, he threw down his hand —there being too many spectators to make it safe to raise a row—and, with his companions, went ashore at the next woodyard.” A Drove of “Bulls.” The following is from Harper'i Magazine twelve years old, which is well worth republishing : The following piece of composition may be backed against anything ever produced. It was written half a century ago, by Sir Doyle Roche, a member of the Irish Parliament in the troubl ous times of 11 ’Ninety-Eight,” when a handful of men from the county of Wexford, struck ter ror to the hearts of many a gallant son of Mars, as well as the worthy writer himself. The letter was addressed to,a friend in London, and it is old enough to be new to nine in ten of the read ers of the “ Drawer “ Mv Dear Sib :—Having now a little peace and quietness, I sit down to inform you of the dreadful bustle and confusion we are all in from these blood-thirsty rebels, most of whom are— thank God I—killed and dispersed. We are in a pretty mess—can get nothing to eat nor any wine to drink, except whisky ; and when we sit down to dinner, we are obliged to keep both hands armed. While I write this I bold a sword in each band and a pistol in the other. “ I concluded from the beginning that this would be the end of it, and 1 see 1 was right for it is not half over yet. At present there are such goings-on, that! everything is at a stand-still. I should have answered your letter a fortnight ago, bnt I did not receive it till this morning. Indeed, scarcely a mail arrives sate without be ing robbed. No longer ago than yesterday the coach with the mails from Dublin was robbed near this town. The bags had been judiciously left behind fur fear of accident, and by good luck there was nobody in except some outside passengers, who bad nothing for the thieves to take. Last Thursday notice was given that a gang of rebels was advancing under the French standard, but they had no drums except bag pipes. “ Immediately every man in the place, includ ing women and children, ran out to meet them. We soon found our force much too little; but we were too near to think of retreating. Death was in every face, but to it we went, and by the time half of our little party were killed, we began to be all alive again. Fortunately, the rebels had no guns except pistols and pikes, and as we bad plenty of muskets and ammunition, we put them all to the sword. Not a soul of them escaped, except some that were drowned in an adjacent bog, and in a very short time nothing was heard but silence. Their uniforms were all of differ ent colors, but mostly green. After the action we to rumage a sort of which they had left behind them. All we found was a few pikes without beads, a parcel of empty bottles full of water, and a bundle of French commissions fill ed with Irish names. Troops are now stationed all round the country, which exactly squares with my ideas. I have only time to add that I am in great haste. “ p. S.—lf you do not receive this, it must have miscarried, therefore you must write to let me know.” Tot late campaign in Kansas in favor of wo man's rights has not been without tangible re sults. Miss Emma Hunt was elected enrolling clerk of the Lower House of the Legislature of that Slate. This is the first case of the kind on record. What is a symphony ?

Ob 1 tell me where be got tbote toft, mild eyee. So much like those in whom my young heart lived, My sister’s beaming eye, blue like yon heaven; Whether awake or closed I known not now. “ I would not have my husband an Odd Fel low for all the world,” said Mrs. Ashton, and she left the lodge-room with a party of ladies, among whom were wives of gentlemen, members of the society. “ Why not?" inquired Mrs. Belmont. “ For very many reasons.” “ Please name them.” “ In the first place, I could not bear the idea of having a secret withheld from me by my hus band ; to feel, when folded to bis bosom, there was something within it I must not know, per haps dearer than myself. I am naturally jeal ous ; a rival I could not bear, and I know bis heart is wholly and entirely mine.” “ Very well; this is your first objection ; pray, what is your second?” “All those mysterious characters around the room : the chairai benches, thrones or desks, the platforms in the centre of the room, with trap-doors, for aught I know, to let the disor derly members down through into some subter ranean cavern ; then, the closed doors, locked and barred, I presume.y I shuddered as I viewed them, fancying they were full of spectres, and hobgoblins, and goats, and the mercy knows what. This is my second objection.” “ Very well—what next?” “ Why, Mr. H. himself—he who Is always so cheerful, so full of repartee, so quick with a re mark on every occasion,—was so demure, so solemn, while we were in the room ; and when I told him I wanted to peep into those three lit tle rooms, be looked as sober and as nervous as a priest; I could not make him laugh— no, not even smile. He seemed as if be really believed the ‘all-seeing eye,’ painted on the canvass above him took cognizance of all his actions. I am confident there is something dreadful about the whole of it, and I would not have Fred become an Odd Fellow for the world; I should never want him near me, after being in those mysteri ous rooms.” “And these are your objections to the Order, Mrs. Ashton, are they?” inquired Mrs. Belmont, seriously. “ Yes.” “ Then the good originating from them has no influence whatever upon your mind. If you will go home with me, I will show you some period icals containing excellent addresses on different occasions, and beautiful Annuals. You will find much in them to admire ; one oration, in particular, on the ‘Supremacy of Principle,’ by the Rev. E. H. Chapin, a favorite writer of mine, and in whose words you can see his soul, and feel your own thrill, as you read his addresses. I will also show you a statistical account of the immense sums distributed by the various socie ties in our country ; showing how many widows and orphans they have relieved ; how many chil dren have been raised from want and degrada tion ; how many strangers have found an asylum from a cold, unpilying world ; how many sick have been comforted ; how many dying, parched lips, have been moistened by the kind charity ; how many eyes closed ; and how many decently buried, honored and mourned by the members of these societies.” 11 How long since your husband became united with them ?’' “ Six years.” “ Is he as kind and attentive to you as he was before he became connected with this baud 1” “More so; he loves me better —I love him more ; he is so consistent, so correct, so prompt to do bis duty when called upon to administer to the necessities of a brother; and how he loves the little boy we have adopted.” “Ay, I recollect hearing something of that foundling. Where did your husband pick up the friendless thing ?” “ In Havana, when he was consul there.” “ Pray tell me the particulars.” “ As we are near my home, and fatigued, you shall go in with me ; we will have a cup of tea, and in the evening I will tell you a simple story. Mr. Belmont has gone to Washington. I am lonesome, and shall be glad of your company for a few days. It is a long time since you have been in the city, and I have much to say.” Mrs. Ashton concluded to accompany her, partly promising to spend the night. As they entered the parlor, a sweet, rosy-faced boy came jumping id, and ran directly to Mrs. Belmont, who, stooping down, kissed him again and again ere she removed her veil ; and parting the rich curls that shaded bis beautiful brow, and turn ing his cherub face toward Mrs. Ashton, she ex claimed : “ This is our pet 1” Mrs. Ashton gazed upon the little fellow with evident surprise ; taking bis hand, she drew him nearer, and, sinking upon the sofa, cried: “Mer ciful God 1 how like some one I have seen 1 Pray tell me where you got those soft, blue eyes ?” “Come here, Julius,” said Mrs. Belmont, much surprised at Mrs. Ashton’s emotions; “cometell me what you have been doing in my absence.” “ I have been ’iding my ’illle horse, mamma.” “ What do you call him?” “ Jimmy Grey ; here is my 'iltle whip to make him go fast.” “ Which do you love best, your hobby-horse or your mamma?” “ I love my horse best, and my mamma best I” and jumping into Mrs. Belmont's lap, be wound his chubby arms around her neck, and kissed her forehead, cheeks and lips, as she pressed him closely to her bosom. Mrs. Ashton sat confounded ; a strange sensa tion took possession of her breast. Was it pos sible Mrs. Belmont could love a child so well? He was a dear little fellow, truly—quite an un common child. She had no children of her own, and had often said she did not wish any ; they were troublesome comforts, pulling and hauling curls, ruffles, etc., nothing could be kept in place where they were. Still, a more lovely picture she never beheld than the one before her. Mrs. Belmont was a handsome woman ; the glow up on her countenance was heightened by exercise, her eyes beamed with delight, her cap was un tied, and her curls fell in beautiful disorder over the the rosy face of her little protege, as he re turned her endearing caresses. Tea was brought in, the statistics were read, the books looked over, and the little boy carried to bed, after saying bis prayers, as he knelt, like a young cherub, at the feetjof Mrs. Belmont —the true personification of love bending over its idol. “ Sow for the story of that lovely child,” said Mrs. Ashton, as she drew her feet upon the sofa, and placed the pillows behind her. Mrs. Belmont quietly seating herself in her large, eacy rocking-chair, began: “ When my husband was consul in Havana, in 18—, Mr. H., a physician, coming in one morning, remarked that be daily visited a very interesting family, who bad drawn deeply upon bis sympathies for many reasons ; and first, that, like themselves, be was an Odd Fellow. He had been on the island a year, prosperously engaged in the mer cantile business, and for the last six weeks bad been much indisposed, owing to a bemorrage of NUMBER 9. the lungs, and was gradually sinking. His wife, an amiable and accomplished woman, perfectly idolized her husband and little bo; of some six months of age, who was bright and beautiful as the morning, and in whom their warmest affec tions centered. In consequence of her devotion to her husband and child, she bad grown pale and languid ; had a cold, and at times her cheeks assumed a hue he trembled to bebold. “ My husband’s kind heart enlisted immedi ately in the feelings of the physician, and to gether they sought the sufferers. Again and again they went, and, like true Odd Fellows, watched over him ; attended to all his wants, closed bis affairs, saw him die, and decently buried him ; then turned their attention to his heart-broken wife, who, it was evident, would soon follow him. I cannot,” said Mrs. 8., wip ing the tears from her eyes, “ describe the scene, although my husband has oftentimes dwelt upon it; but a more touching one cannot be con ceived. Like a summer flower the young mother faded away; gratitude to her friends gleamed in her every look. She gave her little boy to my husband. As her dissolution approached, she yielded up all, in the sweet hope of a glorious immortality; and the consoling thoughts of meeting once more her beloved husband, took from death its sting and robbed the grave of its victory. , “ * Bing my child 1’ she one day exclaimed, as the cold dew gathered upon her marble brow. Long and closely she held him to her bosom, and, although gasping for breath, still retained him, kiss bis dimpled mouth, gazed wishfully into bis deep blue eyes, until she fainted. My husband took the child, while the physician ad ministered the restoratives. She opened her eyes, fixed them once more upon her darling boy, and looking to Mr. 8., she said, in trembling ac cents : ‘ He is yours,’ and expired.” Mrs. Belmont covered her face ; a convulsive sob swelled her affectionate breast. After a moment, she continued : “ The property left, af ter all the debts were paid, was five hundred dollars. The bills were enormous, but could not be disputed. I was sitting by the center-table, reading, on the evening Mr. Belmont came home. He entered the room with a child in his arms, followed by a colored woman, who was bis nurse. Mrs. Belmont stopped, while Mrs. Ashton, who had not moved from the commencement of the story, lay gazing intently into Mrs. Belmont’s face, as if awaiting a further development of the little boy’s history. “ Why are you so silent?” inquired Mrs. B. “ I do not know,” replied Mrs. Ashton : “ but I feel like one in a state of mesmerism. That child's looks have paralyzed my very I have seen him ever since. Pray tell me his name ; I long to know, for he so much resembles one dear to me.” “His father’s name was Henry Benton; bis —” seeing Mrs. Ashton turn deadly pale, she in quired tb»>oause. “ Proceed,” said the excited woman: “tell me bis mother’s name, if you know, before her marriage.” “ Julia Crawford.” “Merciful God! my sister,” exclaimed Mrs. Ashton ; and clasping her hands, she wept bit terly. Mrs. Belmont tenderly inquired into the cause of her agitation, and sweetly soothed her. After Mrs. Ashton became calm, she informed Mrs. Belmont: “My elder and only sister married contrary to her father's wishes, and thereby in curred his displeasure. She loved her husband with all the strength of her young heart, nor was be in any respect unworthy of her affec tions. My father is a proud, high-spirited man, aristocratic in his views, and fixed as the north pole in his politics, and every one opposed to him wrong. Mr. Benton was a firm Democrat, and as fixed in his principles as my father, and as unyielding. During the contested election of 18—, in conversation one evening, they became very warm ; many words passed between them, and my father, being highly excited, in an un guarded moment grossly insulted him. Mr. Bea ton could not brook the offence ; be had borne much for my sister's sake, but this was a point ‘ beyond which forbearance ceased to be a vir tue.’ He thought a separation of all parlies, for a few years, would allay the bitterness ot my father’s hateful, vindictive temper, when he would again return with ray beloved sister, and all would be well. They embarked on board a packet ship for Europe, and arrived safe. He had a handsome capital, which he invested in goods, and entered the mercantile business in Liverpool ; where they were when I last beard from them. I wrote her often, and, oh ! bow I have longed to see her! Although my father has never mentioned Mr. Bentou’s name, I know he is sorry, and would give all the world, did he possess it, to see Julia. When I entered your house and beheld your child, his expression was like a flash of lightning across my soul. I see him still—my sister’s own image.” Mrs. Ashton covered her face with her hands, and wept. She begged Mr. Belmont to lead her to the child. Kneeling by his bedside, she gazed upon his sweet face, as he lay unconscious of all evil, kissed his forehead, cheeks and lips with all of a mother's tenderness, raised his little hands to her lips, pressed them to her heart, nor could Mrs. Belmont prevail upon her to leave him. She slept with him ; and when Mrs. Bel mont arose, she walked softly to the bed, and found the little boy sleeping upon the bosom of his aunt, her arms closely encircling him. Her face was pale with weeping, and her long, loose curls were wet with the tears of sisterly love. Mrs. Belmont bent over them until they awoke ; her first words were : • • What think you now of Odd Fellows ? ’ “Oh I I will go directly home and tell my husband to become one immediately ; for where would this sweet child have been but for this blessed institution? Vou will surely permit me to share with you in the pleasure of bringing him up ; we will together instil into bis opening mind the principles of ‘ Friendship, Love, and Truth ;' and we will make his regalia, when old enough to be initiated into the society of Odd Fellows.” Thackibt says:—When a man is in love with any woman in a family it is astjnisbing bow food he becomes of every person connected with it. He ingratiates himself with the maids ; he interests himself with the footman ; be runs ou errands for the daughter; be gives and lends money to the young son at college ; he pats little dogs that he would otherwise kick ; he smiles at old stories that would make him break out into yawns from any one but papa ; he bears with the old maiden aunt; he beats time when the darling little Fanny performs her piece on the piano, and smiles when wicked, lively little Bob by upsets the coffee over his shirt. Miohtv Particular. —“ I say, landlord, that is a dirty towel for a man to wipe on.” The landlord, with a look of astonishment, re plied : “ Well, you are mighty particular. Fifty or sixty of my boarders have already wiped on that towel this morning, and you are the first to find fault.” A oirl should hang up her fiddle when she has lost her beau.
