S. GRESSINGER. Auditor Belmont Co. St. Clairsville, July 30, 1857. Q7Some time ago, one of the churches in Salem had a misbehaving brother up for discipline, and was about to excommunicate bint, whereupon the world a people held a .meeting outside, and voted not to receive him, unless he should be returned in as urood condition, as when delivered to the church! Qn'Do you sell pies! asked a green- looking fellow, as he lounged into a confec tioner's in Wellington-street, Montreal "Pies, sir!" replied the gentlemanly pro prietor. "Yes, sir, all sorts sir; what kind of pie will you have, sir? "Well, I think I'll tale a magpie." c5-,Pleaseir, said a beggar to Scroggs the other day, "couldn t you give me a little something? I'm a bricklayer, but had a bad fall when at work at my business, and have to live on charity, sir." "Nonsense," ans wered Scroggs, "I had not only a oad lall,t my business, but a bad winter, too, and not much of a SDrintf. I think voi ouclit tj t;ive me something!" OT-'I ay, old boy," cried Paul Pry to an excavator in North Shields, whom ho espied at the bottom of yawning gulf, "what are y ou diggin there?" "A big bole,." tha old b-ov replied. Paul was not to be put off -.b is fashion. "What are you going to do w ith the hole?" "Going to put it into amall holes." replied the old boy, "and retail tbem I to farmers for gate- posts." Paul was aold Poetry. (Original.) My Grandfather's Dwelling. Tis a honse ancient looking- o'ershadowed with trees Ensconced in a vale at the font of a hill; Wiih large open windows inviting the breeze, To gambol through wide rooms so antique and still. " Refore the quaint parlor, how sweet to recline On the bench that's been standing there year after vear. To peep through the creepers that round the porch tvine, 1 At the noisy and dusty old mill that is near. That ofd-fashioned parlor, bow dearly I love it With all of its contents so-cheerful and neat; The sola and. all thin around and above it, Seem ever awaitb g your presence to ereeL . E'en now in a picture kiud memory is brinflnz; T see the rich carpet tha' covers the Boor, The hunch of eay feathers by the glass swineing O'er the nicely covered table that stands by the door. Tbere rns through the Valley a silvery stresm Jutted with granite rocks craggy and steep. And evergreen trees, that shut the sun-beam From the nest of the mocking-bird in the huse heap. How pleasant to sit by the cold spring that bubbles Where myriads of tiny wild-flowers are in bloom; To forge, for a season this world 'and its troubles lis scenes of contention, its sorrows and gloom. The bright waters gurgle by rocks partly bidden With carpets of green moss and clambering vine. Mnk music that touches ajheart-string unbidden And starts nearly tears lrom Affection's deep s! r ne. We dream of ibe past with feelings of sadness; Imagine loved voices and images near. And hope that the future is Venting with gladness. But fond aopes are oftentimes mingled Willi fear. Once through the old rooms where silence is feign ing The gay lauh of children in many peals sang Eul hushed is the echo and time is not deigning. To darken night memories that round theft hearts . hang. - - : Thus in thistileak w orld ties earthly are riven; We find lif" a scene ever changing and new. Here saddening lessons unto us are given That a home we may seek everlasting and true. Oh, long may that homestead, with comfjrts sur rounded Stand quiet as now in the sweet-scented vale. Its inmates enjoy Heaven's blessings unbounded Exempted from' sorrow, peace and plenty prevail. And may we, when life and its sufferings are ended A familv-hand forrnin cWy above, And there amidst praises harmoniously blended Eternally bask itr the sun-shine of love. MISSOURI.

Choice Miscellany. The Little Tin Pails. At about six o'clock in the afternoon, a passenger cannot walk through the quietest ttreets in the city without meeting men. each with a little tin pail in his hand. As the bearer swings It at his side, and raps it against his large buttons, one ran readily know it is empty! Where has he been? What has he been doing! ' What is the pail for? One may not be ab.e to see any thing in the pail, but, after all it has a pleas ant story in it Early in the morning that pail is filled. Befote the break ast things are washed and put away, it Is placed upon the table by a good and industrious woman, who rose be'ore tiie sun, to prepare the morning meal and bathe and dress the chil dren Her fingers and feet have been very busy all the morning and now she stops all other work to see the laboring husband off to his work, and prepare his noon meal for him. The bread, and meat, the large piece of pie, the gingerbread, the pickles, and perhaps some dainty bit which she has saved tor the man she loves, are placed in the' lit tle tin pail, one after another, until it is lull, and the ltd snugly on. He, the laborer, stands by and looks on. When all is finish ed, he gives a ktss to the youngest, saye a pleasant good morning to wife, taxes his pail in his hand and away he goes. From that time he disappears lor the day. No one asks where he goes, and but few know. He swings the hammer or pushes the plane, or practices sjine other handi craft, in doors or out. He toils all day for bread and clothing for himself "and family. His arms are strong, his heart is courage ous, and his mind content The rich ride in their carriages, but he cares not. When noon time comes, and tne whistle sounds nt the shops, he drops his work and opens the little tin pail. The mtat is eaten with true zest, and the bread tastes as sweetly as manna, for he has the health which labor brings. At last he reaches the bottom, and his eyes moisten as he sees there a piece of fruit or some little delicacy which the kind wife has smuggled ia unknown to him something which has cost her Ecif-uenial. Isn't that a sweet meal! With his appetite and with the sweet associations which em balm it, it is a feist for the goes. The whistle sound? again, and again the strong hands and courageous hearts are at work. The day is now upon the wane, but he grows a little weary, lor there is a warm place in his heart feeds the fire on which his willing labor depends. His eye is lifted to the clock, hour after hour, during the pausss in his labor, and down falls the tardy index, until, at last, the stroke of six runs out, and the whistle of release for the da; gives its welcome blast. Before him are twelve or fourteen blest hours "of rest! the rough hands are washed,, the shirt sleeves rolled down and buttoned, the coat put on the little. tin fail taken from its hiding place, and he is in the street again. Now we meet him Now the streets are full of little tin pails. . They are carried by men who have self-respect, who live many lives, wboearn, and "owe not any man." The littlo tin pail rings ctirelessly at their side, the cole bration of a day's labor achieved of l.urd money hardly earned. A thousand children run to meet the lit tle tin pails, and beg the privilege of carry' ing them into houses and tenements scatter ed all over the city. In manv hundreds of these, the table is already set out, at the fire sits the neatly dressed wife, and the hissing tea-pot awaiting the husband's re turn. Behold the family group gathering round the evening board! Before those healthy appetites hew quickly the .viands disappear! . And then, the good wife washes the tea things where they stand, the little tin pail is cleanly wiped out & polished off: for the next day's service: Thus and thus the davs go round, with sound, sweet sleep between. . 4 . j ... ' Toilias rfjoieine sorrowing -.. Onward throazb life 6e poea; Each mnrnins ees some task fe ran, Every evenias seas its close; Pomeihinz attempted, something done, lias earned a night's repose "- God bless the laborer! God bless his companion, the little tin pail. May it ever more be as full of love and all love's asso ciations as it is filled each morn with food, and mav the fond npvpr fail! Fev under- ct.nnd how tmltr hi little tin nail is the in. dex of the prosperity of a community. ' Thel mora thickly we meet them in tht.' the more prosperous do we know that'' we are growing- Oh, let us feel kindly toward those who Dear them; for labor is' the truly honorable thing among men. There is not a neatly graded lawn, a pretty garden, or a well trained tree that does not tell of it. It builds magnificent cities, and builds navies, and bridges rivers, and lays the rail road track, and forms every part of the 1o- 1 comotive. Wherever the steamer ploughs the waves, Or the long canal bears the- na tion's inland wealth; wherever wheat fields wave, and mill wheels turn, there labor is the conqueror and the king. The news paper wherever il spreads its wins, bears with it the impress of toiling hands. Should not the laborer be well fed? Should he not have the best wife and prettiest children in the world't Should not the man who pro duces all that we have to eat and drink and wear be honored! To us there is more true poetry about the laborer's life and lot than any other man's under heaven. It matters not in wha railing a man toils if he tails manfully, honestly, efficiently and content ed. The little tin pail should be a badgeot nobility everywhere, and in the "good time, .. -1 1 1 ' c .- r 11 coming, boys,' it will be so. Springfield Republican A Lawyer with two Characters. One cold evening of November, ten y ars ago, a man wrapped in a large ctaak knock ed at thn'doorof Mons. Dupin, one of the most able advocates of Paris. lie entered, ana drawing from under his cloak a large package of documents, laid them on the ta ble. 'Monsieur, said he, 'I am rich , but a law- suit, which is commenced against me, may ruin me utterly. At my age, a lost fortune not to be re-made. The loss of this suit, therefore, would condemn me to the most frightful misery. I come to implore yuur aid. Here are the papers which explain my claims.' r The advocate listened attentively, while his Unknown visitor thus briefly explained his business. Then opening ihe bundle a.' J 1 . . . ! . . 1 - : . 1. ;i " V aocuraems, ue went inrougu lueui wnu iuc searching rapidity ol his professional eye. They were, at lastrlaid upon the table. . "The Action which is commenced against you for this property,' said he, .'is based up- "toD justice and right, legal aud moral. The property belongsvto your opponent, isui fortunately, in spile of the admira1 le elabor ation of our code, law and justice i'o not always go tcgetlie ; and here, the law is on your side. If, therefore, you rest the case entirely on the law, and use ilhoul reserve all its technicalities and quibbles, and if the legul points in -youT " favor re all stated clearly and ab'y to the court, you will in evitably gain your cause.' 'No living man,' siid the stranger, 'can do what you thus describe so ably as your self Might 1 venture to hope that you wonld reduce your legal opinion to writing, and thus render me invulneraole!' The advocate reflected for a minute or two, and then tr-kicg up again the docu ments, which, nt the first word ol the request he had roughly pushed auay, he taid he would do as the stranger wished. On the morrow, at the same hour, the legal opinion would be readv The client was punctual. The paper was presented o him, accompanied with a de mand, very abruptly made lot a fee of three thousand francs' He stood mute with astonishment. 'You are at liberty to keep your money,' said the layer, 'and I am at liberty to throw my written opmiun into the fire. Advancing toward the chimney, apparent ly for the purpose, he was stopped by the visitor. 'I will pay the sum,' said he, 'but I must g'.ye you my written acceptance for it ' The money in gold,' said the advocate, 'or you shall not h .ve a line!' The client stw that it was inevitable,nnd taking his leave tor 11 moment, -relumed soon with the coin. He paid it, but, in revenge, after gaining his cause, he told the story in every corner of Paris. The jour nals got hold of it. It was soon as univer sal as the name of the great lawyer hinuclf Laments were made by the editors over the grasping advantage thus taken of a client in his extremity, and even Jfiieuds express ed their regrets to him for this betrayal of rvarice. But he simply shrugged his should ers; and us everything is soon forgotten iu Paris, il passed out ol the public mind. I en years went by; aud a few days since at a celebration of which the dignitaries of the courts of law formed a part, the proces sion was interrupted by a woman, who sud denly sprang from the crowd and seized the hand's of Mods Dupin, the Procurer Gen- erul. 'It is he! it is he!' she exclaimed, as she burst ii.to tears and covered his (hands with kisses. 'This is my benelartor, my friend, the angel by whose timely kindness I was saved from ruin and spared to educate my chi:dreu!' 'Poor woman!' said M. Dupin, she has lost her reason.' But no! she insisted on explaining to the bystanders that there was reason in her tears and gratitude. She stated it brokenly. Ten years ago, after the death of her hus bank.a claim was brought in by are lulive fur the property upon which she relied to sup port and educate her children. She resolv ed to defend her possessions of that which she knew to be her own, and had already sold halt ncr liurniture to pay the com mencement of the process, when one duy a stranger called upou her. He abruptly announced his business, tie told ber ihut the suit, for which she was already into ex pense, would be a losing ene, that the law was sgainst her though justice was on her Bide: that she had belter abandon it and save what she still possessed. He then ml ded, that, Iram having been employed on the cae, he had boen able to rcsoue some portion of what was wrongfully tuken from her, and that it was contained Ji bag of " ery different one whick liTwa. gold, w hich he laid on the table, abruptly tilting his leave and giving her astonished senses no opportunity for thanks, or inquiry. l?. : 1 ne tnree tnousana lrancs witn wtiicn she' was thus enrched, enabled her to te establi8h herself with her children, and to commence timely support ot them.

TJie animalcule, to whom a op of water is a shoreless sea, in its beau tiful form, and exqisite coloring, and p. r ffVl organization, attests as truly the aulhpn t.fc impress as the mammoth forms of an pearlier creation.

In the glorious chord of universal harmony is one sorrowful note outspeaking all the rest; in the great sym phony is one-plaintive strain which cannot be mistaken; and Nature's choral hymn is her own requiem. The whole creation groaneth and travaileth together in p&in.

But I think this much at least is desetving of our notice, as confirmatory of foregoing conclusions. that the lorms which in other things are produced by slow in crease ot gradual abrasion of surface, are here produced by rough fracture, when a rouga Iracture is to be .he law ol tx stence. A rase is rounded by its own soft ways af growth, a reed is bowed intotender curva ture by the pressure of the breeze; but we could not from these have proved any re solve preference by nature of curved lines' to o'tyers, inasmuch as ;t might alvvayhave been answered tliat the curves were pro duced,' not for beauty's sake, but infallibly by the laws of vegetable existence; and looking at broken flints or ragged baoka afterwards, we might have thought that we omy liked the curved lines because associa ted w th life aud organism, and disliked the angular tines' becauso associited with iuar- tion and disorder, i . .

'Growth,' she seems to say. is not essential to my work, nor conceal ment, nor softness; but curvature is, and if I must produce my forms by breaking them, the iracture itself shall bi? in jcurves.

While he was G'-veraor of this State, he was vis-iting Newbnrgh 011 some public occa sion, and with a parly of gentlemen, Whie and Democrats, was at the Orange Hotel. Good humor was prevailing, and one story suggested another. The Goternor always enjoyed a story', and could tell one with ex cellent effect. A Whig lawyer was present, and the Governor, recognized him, said: Ah, yes; I'll tell you a good story of Spooner. The other day l.e came up to Albany ,on his way to the Whig convention at Utica,nd, so he took it ir his way tc cail on 1he to g t a plfrdon tor a convict at Sing- Sing. I heard the case, examined the cocu ments.and being satisfied that al! was right, arrced to grant the request Spooner handed me the paperto inder3 ,and I wrote: -Let pardon be " granted. W. L. Slurry;' when Spooner cried out, 'Hold, hold. Governor! that's the wrong paper!' And sure enough, it was a Whiff speech that he was going to makeat ."i-a,abusing me the worst possible way. Bui I had granted the p.trdort in ad vance, and I suppose he committed the cf-lense-siteruard.' 9 The story was received with great ap plause and Spooner; being looked to for a response instantly went on with the follow ing, which, for an extempore story,certain;y is capital: Al"es, gentlemen yes, I did. And when the Convention was over we went to Niag ara Fulls, ard as t were dragging on by the 'stage over miserable corduroy. roads, banging, our heads against the top of the coach, and then coming down as it we were to go through the bottom, the stage came to a dead ha. I; the driver dismounted, opened the door, and requested us all to descend. We did so, supposing that some accident had occurred. When we were all outstand ing on the ends of the logs of which the road was made, the driver took off his hat and said: Gentiemen.we always stop here out of respect lor the Governur, this is the identical spot where Marcy tore his pantal oons!' a The story was heard with great jollifica tion, which no one joined more heartily tiun the Governor himse'l. That pantaloon incident deserves to be recorded in every historr erf this great man. He was sent ou. to hold special sessions of court tojtry the anti-Masonic parties charged with murder. He was to receive a salary and bis expenses. With that nice regard for details that belonged 10 his sterling character, he kept a minute ,-cci nnt of ail his expenditures, and handed in the list on his return, without thii king it beeessur or proper to revise and strike out those items of a private nature, which olher men lets scrupulous in renl -ruaners, might have I VTdi-eiuiiy BUpDirsBeo-.- I tifere stood the tail-" or's charge for mending.

But a.i observant people saw through the patch and the charge into the heart of an honest man, and in that very deed of his, they recognized a frankness slid transpar ency of character that commended h:in to their warm approbatios.

An Extraordinary Case in the Police Court—Lady Arrested for Obstructing the Sidewalks. Oneoftrn mist extraordinary cases ever' brought before a Ugil irilxan-il was witness ed in the Police Court on- Sifirday. An of ficer complained of 0 young M;d remarkably handsom" l.idy lor obstructing the sid walks of Washington street by loo great a display of crinoline. As it is understood that the lady is "lighly connected, we will call her Mary Smiih, and not expose her tru- name. Before the complaint was read, Judge Russel inquired as to the wherebouta of the prisoner. The offi-er replied that the lady was. waiting in.ihc entry; that himself and two others hr.d endeavored to squeeze her through the door ways, but they were too narrow, and he wished the Judge's advice in th premises. The Judge said it was an extraordinary case; the l.onstitutltui guarrantecd to everv one an open trial, and he would not hold a session in the entry even to please a .'adv. Undpr t'-e circumstance?, he reccommended that 3Iis Smith be removed from the entry to tlte front door, and he thought that she must spread considerable not to be able to take her places 11 the prisoner's dock. The experiment wHa tried and found to answer admirah'y the door being some twenty fee' wide, very little compressing being needad and. with a fruwn of indig nation upon her pretty brow, Jiiss Smith found herself fsce to lace with the Judge, and listened- to the comprint which was read to her. ThelfTicer testified that h-tlf a dozen times- during the week he h;'-d born obliged to step from the sidewa!k to enable the de fendant to piss. Once' he came very near b.-ing run over by passing carriage; and he inqnired of th Jndge whether the City Government would li'iv allowed a pension to his idow ':n case e h:id ben Billed. The Judge siid he would reserve his opinion until some ihue ne.t week or: that point. " m The Court inquired if he had any further tei-timony to offer. The officer ssid that ha hid. Ha ha re quested the pr'soner two or three 'times not to stop on the sidewalk, as people were un- ablo to pass without going into the street, which at times yas inconvenient to ladies wearing paper-soled shoes, owing .o the oiitrageoiia manner iu which the thorough fares were watered. The Cotirt--in-rfmming up, said that the evil was one of great magnitude, and should be checked by vigorous measures. There was no statue under which too great a dis play of crinoline came but ho should take the responsibility of inflicting a fine of 5 and costs, and he hoped that it would1 be a warning.
