IRISH DROLLERY. An amusinu story of Dames Barring ton, Kcorder of Bristol, is related. Having to appear for a plaintiff in a case at Clonmell, ne let into the defendant in unmeasured terms. The individual in veighed against not being present, only heard of the invective. After Barring ton, however, had got back to Dublin, a 1'ipperary man named Foley lost no time in paying his respects to the- counsel. He rode all day and night, and, covered with sleet, arrived before Barrington's residence in Hurcourt street, Dublin. Throwing the reins of the smoking horse over the railing ot the area, he an nounced his arrival by a thundering knock at the door. Barrington's valet answered the summons, and, opening the street door, beheld the apparition of the rough-coated Tipparary nre-eater, with a large .Btick under his arm, and the sleet sticking to his bushy whiskers. ""Is your master up?' demanded the visitor, in a voice that gave some evi dence of the object of his journey. " No," answered the man. "Then give him my compliments, and say Mr. Foley he'll know the name will be glad to see him." The valet went np stairs and told his master, who was in bed, the purport of his visit " Then don't let Mr. Foley in for your life, for it is not a hare nor a brace of ducks that he has come to present me, said Barrington. The man was leaving the bed-room, when a rough wet coat pushed by bim. while a thick voice said, "By your leave, and at the same time Mr. Foley entered the room. " Yon know my business, sir, said he to Barrington. " I have made a journey to teach you manners, and it's not my purpose to return until I have broken every bone in your body," and at the same time he cut a figure eight with his shillalah before the cheval glass. " You don't mean to say yon would murder me in bed?" exclaimed Dairies, who had as much humor as cool courage. "No," replied the other, " but get up as soon as you can." "Yes," replied Daines, "that you might fell me the moment I put myself out of the blankets." ' No," replied the other, " I pledge you my word not to touch you until you are out of bed." "Your word?" "No." - " Upen your honor?' ; "No." "This is epough," said Daines, turn ing over and making himself comfort able, and seeming as though he meant to fall asleep, " I have the honor of an 'Irish gentleman' and may rest as safe as tbough I were under the castle guard." The Tipperary salamander looked marvelouBly astonished at the pretended sleeper, but soon Daines began to snore. " Halloa," said Mr. Foley, " ain't you going to get up?" "No." said Daines, "I have the word of an Irish gentleman that he will not strike mo in bed, and I am sure I am not going to set up to nave my boats Droken. i will never eet ud again. In the mean time, Mr. Foley, if you should wantyour breakfast, ring tbe bell; the nest is me house is at your service. Ihe morning paper will be here presently, but be sure and air it before reading, for there is nethiug from which a man so quickly catches cold as reading a damp journal, ' and Daines affected to go to sleep. The Tip had fun in him as well as fc mritv: he could not resist the cunning of the counsel. "Get up, Mr. Barring ton, for in bed or out of bed, I have not the pluck to hurt so droll a heart." Tbe result was that in less than an hour afterwards Daines and bis intended mur derer were sitting down to a warm break Lit, the latter only intent upon assault ing of smoking chops. A OhosC" A correspondent of the Port Gibson Standard has seen an apparUon which ho describes as " a moving object in crave habilimenU-sometimes appearing like a giant, iedy at one blow to destroy and then aeaiu " . -J .ll;t thnnirh it COUld be blOVB off by the slightest breego. It seems of a rowing, restless disposition and per fectly barmloso. It moves with facility and apparent cautioner-is apprrnensive of danger and would Nee at the approaco of anything. I first noticed this strange being in what appeared a sitting posture, and on my advance it aoioklf arose and moved off with considerable rapiJity. Desirous of ascertaining something de finite or so wonderful an object, and supposing it woald soon retura to the place whence it started, I took cover in a clump of bushes hard by. My expec tations were partially realized a but a few minutes elapsed prior to its being jilainly visible, advancing in measnred MEMPHIS. TENNESSEE. TUESDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 27. paces and passing in a short distance of my position. The first impression was to speak, but not knowing how to deal with the stranger in ease he stopped, I concluded to let it pass, and it was soon lost from sight in the darkness of the woods. Not feeling dis posed to pursue, I quietly withdrew and went my way, thinking it likely to have another glance at the unexpected visitor. Tbe following night about the same hour, and having with me a young friend who knew nothing of the apparition, it again appeared and crossed the road about fifty yards distant and directly in our front Wo paused and stood for sev eral minutes without uttering a word. My companion was evidently taken aback, and wished to know what it meant, when I informed him of what bad taken place the previous night Supposing it was a ruu of some kind cotton up for his benefit, he proposed moving on, to which I objected for the reason that by re maining quiet it would probably return. The remark had scarcely been made when it re-crossed, quite slowly, and took position by the roadside, as though it bad an idea of awaiting our approach. This was somewhat exciting to the young man as well as myself, and what course to pursue, whether to go for ward or backward he was at a loss to determine. Believing, as I did, that simply to advance would prove sufficient for a change of position on the part of the ghost, I proposed moving np cauti ously, which was done, and we succeeded in getting within a short distance of the desired point when it disappeared retiring into tho hollow, whence it came. Owing to the perfect stillness of tho night, together with the demoralizing influence brought to bear by this lone some spot, we, after a brief consultation, deemed it prudent to push on towards home and leave the ghost alone in its apparent glory." Josh Billings' Proverbs. There seems to be four styles of mind : 1st, them who know it is so I 2d, them who know it aint sol 3d, them who split the difference and guess at it I 4th, them who don't care a darn which way it is t There is but few men who hev charac ter enough to lead a life of idleness. True love is spelt just the same in Choctaw as it is in English. These who retire from the world on ac count of its sins and peskiness, must re member that they have got to keep com pany with a person who wants just as much watching as anybody else. A puppy plays with every pup he meets, but old dogs have but few associ ates. It costs a good deal to be wise, but it don't cost anything to be happy. Necessity begot invention, invention begot convenience, convenience begot pleasure, pleasure begot luxury, luxury beget riot aud disease, riot and disease between them begot poverty, and poverty begot necessity again and this is the revolution of man, and is about all he can brae on. " Love lies bleeding I" this is proba bly one of the darndest lies that ever was told. When a man loses his health, then he fust begins to take good care of it This is irood iudement this is I Most people decline to learn only by their own experience. And I guess they are more than i right, for I do not 'spose a man can get a perfect idee on molasses candy by lettin another feller taste it for him. Success in life is very apt to make us foreit the time when we wasn't much. It is just so with the frog on the jump; he can t remember wnen ne was a taupon but other folks can. An individual to be a fine gentleman, has either to be born so, or brought up so from infancy; he can't larn it sudden any more than he can larn to talk Injun correctly by practicing on a tomahawk. I wonder if there aver was an old maid whoever heard on a match that she tho't was suitable. If a man wants to get at his actual di' mengions let him visit a graveyard. I have often set down square on the ice. bv having my feet git out of place, but I never could see anything in it to laff at, especially if there whs some water on the top of the ice, but I notis other folks can. l'recepts are like cold buckwheat slap. jacks nobody feels like being snssy to them, and nobody wants to adopt them. If any man wants to be an old bache lor, and get sick in a boarding tavern, and have a back room in the fourth story, aud have a red-haired chambermaid bring his water gruel to him in a wash basin, I have always said, and stick to it yet, he has cut a oerfect right to do it It is dreadful easy work to repent of other folks sins but not very prolithble. Bi.mark on tho United States. The Berlin correspondent of the Time gives the followiug account of an inter view with Count Bismark : The conversation touched briefly on American affairs. "In our relations with the United States I never had a doubt. The Tory party in Prussia, to which I am supposed to belong, at the outbreak of your war besought tbe King to recog nize the South. I opposed it inflexibly. To mo it was clear that the North only could be the true ally of Prussia. With the South we had nothing in common. Tho Government of Prussia never wavered in its friendship for yours." The sentence was uttered proudly, and the burning eyes flamed brighter tbun ever. "It is a traditional policy with us. Frederick the Great was, 1 think, the first European sovereign to recognize yonr independence. I am heartily glad to know that America understands and reciprocates the friendly feelings wo have steadily maintained,. ! And here lollows a curious statement, a fact not known to me before, and, I fhink, unpublished in Aiurrica: ( "At the beginning of our war," said Count Bismark, "Austria was stronger than we on the water, and Italy was not sure to us. It was proposed to me that the leading Southern naval officers should join us with five thousand men and suit- agio rcesei. uey wr" w vuw- - alias a Confederate navy, but as ifi di vidual!, and the most eminent officers among them were included in the offer. I consulted your Minister to know wheth er an acceptance of this offer would be offensive to tbe American Government Mr. Wright was in doubt and wrote to Washi lgton. Ho received instructions lo oppose the scheme, and I at opce" de clined having anything to dj with it Semmes made the proposal." :S5e2" LARGEST CITY CIRCULATION. iETNA INSURANCE COMPANY, HARTFORD, CONN INCOItl'OIlATKI) lHlO.

Our total loss will not vary much from 1 3)0,01)0, and wa. promptly adjusted and paid. This sum is five per cent, upon the Com pany', assets, a figure but slightly exceeding our Government and State taxes paid last year, or a proportion eo.Oul to a 1 5,000 loss for aconi pany of $1(10.000 assets. , , The necessity for insurance and the value ol wealthy, strong corporations is forcibly il lustrated by this fire.
