An eastern paper says:?The
greatest ease of love is that of a
youth in Kentucky, who got into a
hollow tree, where he lived a
whole week, peeping throug a
knot-hole at his lady-love, as she
sat sewing bearskin petticoats at

An exchange paper says it is as

A Judge in Kentucky has derided

" There is ?a fable among the
Hindoos that a thief, having been
detected and eomdemnnd t.o die,
thought upon an expedient by
which he might be rescued from
denth. 1 le sent for the jailor, and
told him he tad asecrct to disclose
to the King, and when he had
done so he would be ready to die.
The King sent for him to know
what the secret was. He told him
he knew the art of producing trees
that should bear gold. The King,
accotnpanicd by his prime ministers,
courtiers, and priests, came
with the thief to a certain spot,
... 1*. lUoil.
u iiui u tiirj uugcui uiuu iuv;aiiia^
tioiiSi The thief then produced a
piece of gold, declaring that if
sown it would produce a tree, every
branch of which should bear
gold : " But," added he, "this must
be put into the ground by a person
perfectly honest. I am not so, and
therefore pass it to your Majesty."
The King replied?" When I was
a boy, I remember taking something
from my father, which, although
a trifle, prevents my being
the proper person. I pass it, therefore,
to my prime ministers." The
latter said?"I receive the taxes
of the people, and, as I am exposnd
tn mnnv fpmtatirm? Knw pun
I be perfect ly honest ? I therefore
give it to the priests." The priest
pleaded the same as to his conduct
in receiving the sacrifices. At
length the .thief exclaimed?" I
know not why we should not all
four be hanged, since not one of us
is honest." The King was so
pleased at the ingenuity of the
thief that he granted him a pardon."
The way to get a Tev-Strike.?
Those who are not so well versed
in the mystery of Ten-Pins, or the
way to get a Ten-Strike, will learn
something by the following, or at
least, in what light Elder Knapp,
of Boston holds the practice :?
Elder Knapp, who is as great
an original as he is an eloquent
exhorter. on Sunday last in Boston,
addressed a large congregation on
the immortal tendencies of "theatres
and bowling saloons." The
bowling saloons received a grand
share of condemnation, and were

Elder's saying that the devil was
rolling ten-pins, and the little devils
setting them up; that the devil
rolled three balls, the first of which
was Infidelity, the second Universalism,
and the third the ball of
Damnation. The first ball got
generally from one to three pins,
the second from five to seven, and
the third (Damnation) swept the
whole board, and got a ten-strike.
Tiie Oregon Treaty.? The
Pennsvlvanian savs?
"James S. Wallace, Esq., one
of the Editors of the North American,
left this city yesterday, being
summoned to Washington in relation
to the publication of the Oregon
Treaty, Mr. Graham having
returned home discharged,because
he knew 44 nothing about it."
In addition to the above, we find
the following in ah exchange paper

the Oregon Treaty and Correspondence,

committee appointed by the Senate,
of which Mr. Yulee is the

it publicity. Nothing further can
be done with him, and. so the mat-'

Vegetable Fever and Ague and Anti
Fever Pills.
Among all tlie advertised remedies of the
day for ague and Fever, or Chill and Fever,
none seem to meet with such rapidity
of sale and give so much general satisfaction,
as Dr Hull's celebrated Pills. Wher-.
ever they have been introduced, all tonics
in whatever shape, all mixtures and Pills
and preparations of every character, designed
for this disease, have been discarded,
and Dr. Hull's Ague Pills have been
received as the only permanent cure.
They stop the Chills and Fever the first
day, and do not sicken the stomach or operate
on the bowels. children and
persons of all a<r*?s sex??, and conditions
may use these Pills, not only with safety,
but with the certainty of success.
Judge Forrest ot Jonesboro, Ala, was
cured ot a severe and obstinate case of
Chills, with only half a box, after two phy.
sicians had exhausted all their skill.
Ma Lewis Covin, of Abbeville Dis. S.
C., says he has sold several boxes of Hull's
Pills, and never knew them to fail curing
the chills and fever in a single instance.
Mr Wm S Mills, of Abbeville Dis, S.
C., certifies that his wife was cured of an
obstinate case of chills and fever of twelve
months standing with only half a box of
Hull's Pills ; and also says his little
daughter was cured of the chills and fever
of 6 months standing with the remainder
of the same box.
