Bishop Heber on Happiness.
One morning in the month of May ' ' I wandered o'er the hill; Though nature all around was gay, -My heart was heavy still. Can God, I thought, the just, the great, These meaner creatures bless, And yet deny to man's estate The boon of happiness? Tell me, ye woods, yc smiling plains, Te blessed bird3 around, In which of Xature's wide domains Can bliss for man be found. The birds wild carrolled over head The breeze around me blew, And nature's awful chorus said No bliss for man she knew. I questioned Love, whose early ray. So ro3y bright appears, And heard the timid genius say His light was dimmed by tears. I questioned Friendship: Friendship sighed; And thus her answer gave The few whom fortune never turned Were withered in the grave. I asked if Vice could bliss bestow? Yice boasted loud and well, But fading from her withered brow, The borrowed rosea fell. 1 sought of Feeling, if her skill Could soothe the wounded breast; And found her mourning, faint and still, For others' woes distressed. I questioned Virtue; Yirtue sighed, No boon could.she dispense Nor "Virtue was her name, she cried, Hut humble Penitence. J questioned Death the grisly shada Relaxed hi3 brow severe And '1 am happiness,' he said, If Yirtue guides thee here.' From the New York Observer. Heaven's Glory. Tram the Xlith Psalm.

Thirty years ago I was pennyless and without friend. I had engaged unsuccessfully in two or three forlorn speculations, in the course or which 1 wandered about the State with a reckless indepen- dence, sometimes mourning over the past, and sometimes anticipating the bleak and gloomy fu ture. At leneth my funds and every invention to increase them were exhausted, and shunning all Bociety, I spent a week in devising plans by which I waB to be rescued from my embarrassments. was very young, and adversity was a strange thing to me. In the absence of all amusement and occu pation, I devoted myself to rambling. I passed hours and whole day3 in roaming over the lovely scenery of one of the most pictnresque countries I ever saw. I would start off in the morning, when the sun first peered above the glowing east, and, with a few hard biscuits in my pocket, push my journey I knew not and I cared not whither. cannot describe the sensations with which I have awakened from my feverish slumbers, and gone thus abroad beneath the fair morning sky, wnen the fragrance was loosened from the thousand sur rounding flowers, and every simple object of nature came up to my sight with sweet reality, after a night tinged with the colors of unhappy dreams; and as the sun "Sprang gloriously And freely up, and hill and river Were catching, upon wave and tree, The arrows from his subtle quiver." I have seemed abstracted from the ties of so ciety, and dwelt in the silence that was unbroken by any sound to remind me of a man as it 1 bad been a deer or a bird, or some other free and un tamed creature of the forest, gifted with human sense and feeling. Of the scenery around me I was completely enamored. I lost every taste for other occupations. I wished to enjoy forever this wild existence, in the midst of rocks, and trees, and rivers, watching the occurrences of the animate world, in the many capricious shapes in which life lias sprung up in its mysterious connection with matter. There is every where through the works ofProvi dencc an assuasive influence upon philosophy, in consistent with violent emotion. Dear reader, if you arc weary of the world; if life has gone with you so that you look upon it as a tedious and a- hackneyed story; if you have labored long and are yet surrounded with want; if poverty ha3 cut down the best feelings of your soul; if yon have hoped iind been disappointed; if you have trusted and been betrayed; if some being, around whom your Tory heartstrings were woven, has been but yester- tlay returned to the dark earth, go forth from the rude noise of busy men to the quiet and winning loveliness of a country scene. Look out some dell in the midst of a lonely forest, where the green bank, Kented with u few wild flowers, slopes down to a runningstream, that some-times dashes through a compressed channel, and sometimes expands into a silvery lake. The bending willows shall over hang its surface, and a few rocks jut their mossy points, here & there, into the transparent rippling water. When you lie down upou the cool grass, the birds will alight near you, and warble their notes, and trim their beautiful feathers, with a con fidence in you which you would deem it sacrilege to betray. Above your head, through the ope nings in the branches, peices of blue sky will gleam upon you, with clouds sailing silently; and if it be toward evening, and the red sun is going down to bis golden couch, his crimson rays will stream through the trees, and fall upon some ventrable oak, or the leaves of a grove, or the sido of a high rock, or the bosom of a glassy stream, lending them all a beauty like that of fairy land. Before you have numbered half of these simple and common things in nature's history, though there have been a tempest of wild and gloomy resolutions in your Jzund, it will all pass away uneonsciomly; jo will be inspired with a resignation to tlie' will;qf .Provi-j , - , , -1 . r'l i.l .1 oencc singuiariy uppmiw u juur luriiierruchu.! ness, and be filled wi'ha softness of 'fief deare: than the lightest flash of pleasure. 0 t In such scenes, with such sensations, I yielded myself to the current of the wbrldr'and" resoiveS' again to seek, upon its unstable billows, for a rep- utation and a home. I wrote to a fricjvJhjm..'g3thcr the giver uor the receiver the proprietor of an academy of some renown, ami offered my servces as an assistant. They were kindley accepted. His answer inclosed advance money to a considerable amount; and in a few days as if I were but the .imago of some changing dream, I found myself away from the wide green hills and shadowy wood of the country, pent up in a small room with a class of boys whom I was to initiate into the mysteries of geography and as tronomy. The first lad was a dull, singular-looking being, of a most unpromising exterior. Judging from ap- pearances, the probability of teaching his '.'young idea how to shoot," seemed a matter of considera ble doubt I Strove several times for a plimrne of intelligence in his mind in vain. Itwa3 like the labor of the Brazilian slave,digging in the sand for diamonds. "Where is Asia?" asked I. He reddened, put out his under-lip, cast down his eyes, and at length found words to say, . "On the map, Sir." - " "Point to its real situation." He stuck out his clumsy hand like the ' forepaw of a dancing bear, and pointed in a direction about twenty degrees above the horizon. "What causes the day?" 'The sun, sir." "What causes the nightl" "The moon, sir." I was quite satisfied as to the extent of his abil ities, and passed on. The next was a clear complexioned, noble look ing fellow, with large dark eyes and glossy hair, curled about his high temples; his full lip was red like a girl's, and his voice sweet as music. He had a correct knowledge of what he had gone over, and a facility in learning whatever was placed be fore him. The few simple interrogations which I put to him were easily replied to, till at length he missed several in succession. Then came a shad' w over nis morning lace, and the tears stole up softly into hi3 eyes, and hung upon their long lash es trembling. I could not but wonder to myself if he had a sister or a cousin; who resembled liim; but what was that to me? So I went on The next had nothing to distinguish him from boys in general. His countenance "Wa3 one ol those common faces which we never notice. He bad pins stuck in the sleeve of hi3 coat, and twine hanging out of the corners of his pocket. Hi3 stockings had slipped down over his shoes, and the strinrs trailed alonir the floor. He fidgeted with his button-hole, and put his foot in his lap, and at length got one of his companions laughing at some-thing which he had in his hand. I called him to me, and thrust it into his pocket which stuck out from his bodv as if it contained the whole amount of his personal estate. I desired him to empty it upon the desk, and forth came a medley of school boy treasures, isinglass, slate-pen cils, a ball, chewed india rubber, paper-boats, a top and among the rest, a fly-box, containing a mot unfortunate prisoner, who, without judge or jury, had been summarily condemned hi3 wings stripped from his back, and he hanged by a hair rone on an aonronriate nine-wood trollows, which my friend had manufactured for the occasion The other was an awkward, lubberly, overgrown creature, with a pair of green eyes, that looked like a cat's. His hair stuck out straight on every side like a coat brush; he had a huge nose that oc cupied a third of his face, and he spoke with a cracked voice that had as little of melody in it as the filing of a saw. He sat upon the bench with as little animation as if hehed been made out of putty; and though he did not answer any questions, yet he exhibited no other sign of grief than might have been detected in a yawn that opened a mouth of most appaling dimensions. Now, mark the caprices of fortune. Thirty vears hare irone with the wind. I have taken an interest in watching the progress of my little class The last mentioned grew up into a poet. He has written some of the most delightful stanzas I ever read. They breathe a soul of the highest nature, a heart stored with all that ennobles and sweetens life. The dunce whom I first examined, at this instant holds an ofice in the service of the United States, where his knowledge of human nature, and his powerful tolents, have made his name familiar to every ear, as his praises will be to future gener ations. He in whom I found nothing to distin guish him from common boys but his slovenly ap. pearance, is now one of the neatest and wealthiest merchants in the city, and universally beloved for his intelligence and virtue; and the other, whose sweet face and brilliant mind won my affection im mediately and awakened the liveliest hopes of his future eminence, sleeps in the grave. Curious Prediction. Mrs. Swisshelm, writing about some predictions in reference to the Eastern War, makes the follow ing remarks. Dr. "Wilson, of whom she speaks, was a very learned and worthy man, who never spoke from mere impulse, or enthusiasm, but always form deliberate and intelligent conviction of the truth of what he uttered: "Six years ago we heard Bev. Dr. "Wilson, then of Alleghany city, and Professor of Theology in the Reformed Presbyterian church, say, that in les3 than ten years a war would break ont in Eu rope, between Russia and the Western Powers a war which would be one the most terrible ever re corded in the annals of history, and which by its wholesale slaughters, would carry the name of Christendom with a thrill of wonder to the most remote and barbarous nations, awaken a curiosity about civilization that would prepare the way for the introduction of the Bible and Christianity into those benighted lands, whose people would be taught by the rumors of thi3 war, to fear ami re spect the arts of civilization. This declaration was made again and again in public, from the pul pit, and was the result of a life-time study of the of the prophecies of the Bible. The war then un thought or, is now begun, and the aged preach er always said the Western Powers would be vic toriousthat the teeth or the great Bear would be forever broken, and with them the powers of the Pope. "We heard this same man predict the Mexican war years before it begun, and tell what its end would be. He also predicted the great fire of '45 in Pittsburg; and we incline to think his gift of second sight was more reliable than that of the maker of this old statue, and that the Russians will be masters or Constantinople. From the first word about proposed hostilities be tween Russia and Turkey, we have been in the habit of telling our friends to buy their flour, for it would be S15 or 20 per barrel before it wou'd be 85 again, and so we still think it will be, for we are of opinion our preacher saw far into the Dronhecies already written. He said this war would take place would be very terrible and gen end, and that it was the last war before the uni versal peace of the Millennium. Plkasuke. Blessed be the hand that prepares a pleasure, for there b no saying when and where it may again bloom forth.

Mysteries of Sadncss:- Who that reads the following beautififul passage from an accomplished writer.will nbfbear witness to the correctness of the description? "Who hath not had experience as thus truthfully portrayed? "There i3 a mysterious feeling that frequently passes like a cloud over the spirits. It comes upon the soul in' the busy bustle of life to the social circle in the calm and silent retreats of solitude. Its powers arc alike supreme over the weak and iron hearted. At one time it is caused by the flit ting of a single thought across the mind. A sound will come booming over the ocean of memory, gloomy and solemn as the death-knell, overwhelming all the bright hopes and sunny feel ings of the heart "Who can describe it ? and yet who has not felt its bewildering influence ? Still it isn delicious sort of sorrow ; and like a cloud dimming the sunshine on the river, although causing a momentary shade of gloom, it embraces the beauty of returning brightness" Remarkable Discovert. A correspondent of the Petersburg Express, at Charleston, Ya., com municates to that paper the following series of in cidents, which, if true, arc certainly very singular: "Washington was accustomed to wear two watchseals, one of gold and tho other of silver. Up onboth of them the letters G."W. were engraved.or rather cutthcThesc seals he wore as early as 1754, and they were upon him at the terrible day of Braddock's defeat On that day he lost the silver seal. The gold one remained with the General until the day of his death, and was then by him given to his nephew, a gentleman of Virginia, who carefully preserved it until about seventeen years ago, when, in riding over his faim, he dropped it. The other day, the gold seal, lost seventeen years ago, was ploughed up, recognized from the letters G."W. on it, and restored to the son of the gentleman to whom "Washington had presented it At almost the same time, the silver seal lost in 1754, just one hundred years ago, was ploughed np on the site of the battle in which Braddock was defeated, and in like manner recognized from the letters G. "W. So in a short time the two companions will again be united. I have this whole statement from the most reliable sonrce possible, namely, from the gen tleman himself, who has thushad restored to him those precious mementoes of his great ancestor. The affair is but one more proof of an oft-stated maxim, that truth beggars fiction in strangeness. I repeat, there is not the slighest exageration or mis-statement in the matter, and there is no room for mistake. In legal phraseology, the truth ex cludes every other hypothesis." A country editor thus tears in tatters an an cient proverb: Ex. "A Rolling Sioxe Gathers no Moss." "Well, what of that? Who wants to be a mossy old stone, away in some damp corner of a pasture, where sun shine and fresh air never come, for the cow3 to rub themselves against, for snails and bugs to crawl o ver and for toad3 to squat under among the poison ous weeds? It is far better to be a smooth and polished stone; rolling along in the brawling stream or life, wearing off the rough corners, bringing out the firm chyrstaline stucture of the granite or the delicate veins of the agate or chalcedony. It is far better to be a smooth and polished stone; roll ing along in the brawling stream of life, wearing off the rough corners, bringing out the firm chrys- taline structure of the granite or thcdelicate veins of agate or chalcedony. It is this perpetual chaf fing and rubbing in the whirling current that shows what sort of grit a man i3 made of and what use he is good for. The sandstone and soapstone are ground down to sand and mud, but the firm rock is selected for the towering fortress, and the diamond i? cnt and polished for the monarch's crown. Charlie. "Mother", said a little boy, coming up to her one day, and looking earnestly into her face, "what does it mean togive your heart to God?" "Char lie," said she, putting down her sewing, "do you love anybody?" "I love you," answered the child, with a look of surprise: "I love my father, and my sister, and Henry." "Then you give your heart to your father, to Henry, to your sister, and to me. It means to lovo us; and giving your heart to God, means to love him," The child's face looked bright with a new thought, as his mother spoke. "And you ought to love God best, because God gave you your father and mother, and brother, and sister, and everything you have; and he gave you his dear Son, Jesus Christ, to die for you, and make you a good boy." Though Charlie was only a little more than three years old, his little mind loved to light upon subjects like these, as if it were feeling its way after God and hcvenly things. "I do want to give my heart to God, mother," said the child; "how shall I do it?" And then his mother taught him a little prayer expressive of his want, when the child kneeed down beside a chair, and clasping his small hands togeth er, prayed in tones so heartfelt, that the mother thought that out of the months of babes and suck lings there might go forth acceptable worship. "From that good hour," she now says, "I believe Charles became n child of God." His child-life did not disapoint her hopes. He was always trying to live like Jesns. Charles is now a man, one of the best of men, and he said he had one of flic best of mothers. Sabbath School Record. Bors. Boys did you ever think that this great world, with all its mines and mountains, its oceans, seas and rivers, steamboats and ships, railroads and steam printing presses, magnetic telegraphs, will soon be given over to the hands of the boys of the present age?

A -lecturer on the heroes of the English Commonwealth says, it was Hampden who established in the English mind the idea of liberty; Cromwell, who cstablishsd the idea of toleration; Blake the idea that Britain must be the master of the seas; and Milton the idea of the liberties of the Press. This was the special work of these four men, the fathers of British liberty. The old saying that the Spanish commence a colony by erecting a cross, the French by building a fort, the English by opening a rum-shop, may not inappropriately be extended by saying that one of the first doings of an American colony is to estab lish a newspaper. 23i,There were but six barrels of flour shipped from the port of New York to Liverpool all last week.

MAURIS THE GENERAL AGENT OF THIS PAPER FOR COLLECTING SUBSCRIPTIONS, ADVERTISING, AC. REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE TO EXAMINE FAIR GROUNDS. Tho committee to examine site3 for fair grounds reported yesterday to the meeting of the county society. The committee were divided in opinion between leasing a part of the grounds of W. R. El usion, Esq., and the purchase of ground else where. The society resolved that it was expedient to purchase ground, and gave the committee an other week to select a site. The original commit tee, consisting of Messrs. F. R. Rains, F. McGav ock, W. R. Elliston, T. Fanning, aud E. G. East man, was increased by the appointment of Dr. John Shelby, Gen. W. G.J Harding, and John H WiUiams, Esq. The committee will report a site to the meeting of the society, to be held at the Court House next Saturday, at 10 o'clock. PUBLIC SENTIMENT. The Banner makes a quotation from the Georgia Journal and Messenger, a paper, the Banner says, "which warmly favored the Nebraska bill, and which has been neither slow nor slack in its denun ciations of the course pursued by the whigs of the North in reference to that measure." The quota tion reflects upon the course of the Northern dem ocrats. The Journal and Messenger is a whig paper, which, six months ago, occupied the same position with the Nashville True Whig; and, like the latter paper, now seeks to re-instate itself with the whig leaders by abuse of Northern democrats. The Banner will probably next quote against these Northern dem ocrats the True Whig, "a paper which warmly favored the Nebraska bill," &c. MORE ANTI-SLAVERY TRIUMPHS. It is without surprise, says the Macon Telegraph, and not without some shadow of consolation that we announce the total overthrow of the Democratic party in New York. Myron H. Clark, an Abo lition whig and a Maine-law fanatic, has been chosen Governor. Henry J. Raymond, the notorious edi tor of the New York Daily Times, has the place of Lieutenant Governor; the Congressional Delegation is almost unanimous against the South; and, to crown the whole, an immense majority of the General Assembly will take their seats, pledged to the re-elction of the arch-traitor and demagogue, William II Seward. Thus it will appear, that the great State of New York, following the example of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Connecticut Indiana, Iowa and Yermont, has solemnly entered into the combi nation against the South; nor is the tale more than half-told yet In IUinois and Wisconsin, the Ne braska bill has proved equally fatal to its supporters, and throughout the entire Northern, Middle and Western States, we have yet to hear of an election in which the Anti Slavery Whig alliance has not achieved a signal and a perfect victory. Our readers will, perhaps, wonder, hov. in all these disasters, we can find any shade of consola tion, but if these repeated triumphs of our enemies shall have the effect of awakening the South from her long slumber of submission, we shall be content For the present, we shall abstain from comment, and leave the subject to the calm reflection of the Southern public. New York has deliberately joined the league against us. The Democratic party has been de feated, the Administration ha3 been "rebuked," and an Abolition Governor has been elected. Will the Journal and Messenger find in all this "the slightest reason for regret?" We shall see. THE NEXT DIVISION FAIR. The delegates to the Middle Division Fair re-as sembled in this city on yesterday, and agreed upon Gallatin as tho place for holding the next Fair for the Middle Division of Tennessee. Eleoant and Comfortable Homes. We would call public attention to the sale of lots, advertised by Lind3ley fc Crockett in Gen. Zollicoffer's Ad diticn to Edgegeld, to come off on the grounds on Wednesday the 22nd inst. These grounds are the most elegant in the neighborhood of Nashville, are as near the Public Square as Cannon's Corner, they are of fine soil, covered with forest trees and are really worthy of attention of all those wishing to procure comfortable and neat homes for their fami' lies. As they are sold on tho premises, the purcha ser can have a fair opportunity of judging for him self, and we would advise all those who have not a habitation of their own, to attend the sale and judge for themselves. Politics in the Pulpit. The New York papers of Saturday were filled with notices of semons on political subjects to be preached Sunday in dir. ferent sections of the city, in view of the election to be held on Monday. The "Church Journal," (Episcopalian) commenting upon this exraordinary feature of the times, pertinently enquires, "What is the reason of all this ? Has tho old fashioned Gospel which we have been accustomed to believe was the hveriasung uospel been at length exhausted and worn threadbare? Is no text fresh enough now for preachers and people except it be taken Irom the liospel according to the Uatly papers? Is it that the ministers are tired of tho old topics of grace and salvation, and no long believe that "Gospel" of which they pretend to I 'preachers?' The point we now wish to make, how ever, is, that in me country, wnere, as we nad fondly hoped Church and State Keligion and Politics were thoroughly and forever divided. popular Preachers are rapidly rising to be the leaders of political parties, and pulpits are found to bo as in times of old tho best recruiting drums to beat up voters for political partizans. And a cor responding change has taken place in Politics, too, as wen asm reieiuu uuw m tucm iuiuk uuu jail ing upon one Democratic prvot vox popull As the pulbit, thcrelere, has grown political, the stump has waxed pious; and if "Nebrska" rings out lustily from tho meeting-house, it is only in sonorous unison with the "Higher Law," re sounding from the Halls of Congres3. They have a boa constrictor named "Rubb" in St. Louis that dined the other day on eleven full grown living chickens, and looked as if he could have taken a few more. He first fascinated them so that they could not move, and then having licked them all over with slime, crushed them in the folds of his neck nnd swallowed them down feathers, claws, and all. He then adjusted himself for a siesta. The Lost Treasure. Wo understand that the treasure ($153,000) shipped by Page, Bacon, & Co., on the Yankee Blade, was insured at $17 per ounce, so that tho house will lose only $5000 by the acci dent It is thought that the specie will never be recovered. At the burial of Marshal deSt. Arnaud the flag of France and England, for the first time in history, covered the same coffin, and Muiselman cannon re sounded in sign of grief at the funeral of a christian General.

New York, October 25, 1854, t Seventy Hundred and One, Narrow St J Being satiated with the ordinary common-place things of-every day life, and having heard a great deal about the mysterious communications tele graphed to this, our ignorant sphere, by wise and benignant spirits of bliss, through the dignified me dium of our chairs, washstand and card tables, we three, (who had met again,) determined to put ourselves in communication with tho next world, to find out, if possible, our chances of a favorable reception when business or pleasure calls us in that direction. Up Broadway till we came to an illu minated three cornered transparency, (which made Bull Dogge smack bis lips and say "oysters,") which informed U3 that within a largo assortment of spirits of every description were constantly in attendance, ready to answer inquiries, or to run on errands in the spirit world, and bring the ghost of anybody's defunct relations or friends to that clas sic spot, for conversational purposes, all for the moderate charge of twenty-five cents. (Damphool, who had been there before, said that these "deli cate Ariels" were the spirits of departed newsboys, who are thrown out of their legitimate business, and strive to get an honest living by doing thase eighteen-penny jobs.) Entered the room with le coming gravity, and overcoming awe. Two old foozles in white neck cloths, and no collars, a re turned Californian in an Indian blanket, two peaked-nosed old maids, a good looking widow, with a little boy, our own sacred trio, and the "me dium'' composed tho whole of the assembled multi tude. The "medium," aforesaid, was a vinegar complexioned woman, very ruby nose, mouth the exact shape of tho sound hole to a violin, who wore green spectacles, and petticoats of equivocal purity. The furniture consisted of several chairs, a mir ror, no carpet, a small stand, a large dining table, and in one corner of the room a bedstead, wash stand, and book case, with writing desk on top. After some remarks by the medium, wo formed the magic circle, by setting close together, and put ting our hands on the table. Bull Dogge took a big drink before he laid his ponderous lists by the side of others. After a short length of time the table began -o shake its rickety legs, to flap its leaves,'waftor the manner of wings, and utter omni nous squeaks from its crazy old joints. Pietty soon "knock 'under Damphool'shand; he trembled and turned pale, but on the whole, stood his ground like a man. Knock, knock in my immediate vi cinity looked under the table, but couldn't see anybody knock, knock; knock, KNOCK, directly under Bull Dogge's elbow. He, frightened, jump ed from his seat, and prepared to run, but, sensible to the last, he took a drink, felt better reverently took off his hat and said "d n it" and resumed his seat. Knocking became general medium said the spirits were ready to answer questions asked if any spirit would talk to me yes. Come along, I remarked noisy spirit announc ed its advent by a series of knocks, which would have done honor to a dozen penny postmen, "roll ed into one." Asked who it was ghost of my uncle (never had an uncle) inquired if he was happy tolerably. What are you abom? princi pal occupations are, hunting wild hee3 catching cat fish, chopping pine lumber, and makiDg hickory whipstocks. How's your wife? sober jnBt at pres ent. Do you have good liquor up thei? (Very emphatically.)

One of the old foo zles now wanted to talk spirit was grated by the remains of hi3 maternal grand motheri wo hammered out in a series of forcible raps, the grati fying intelligence that she was very well contenteds and spent the most of her time in drinkin" green tea and singing Yankee Doodle. Damphool now took courage, and sung out for his father to come and talk to him (when the old gentlemanjwas alive, he was "one of 'em' ) on de mand the father came interesting conversation old man in trouble lost all his money betting on a horso race, and had just pawned his coat and a spare shirt to get money to set himself up in busi ness again as a pop corn merchant (Damphool sunk down exhausted, and borrowed the brandy bottle.) Disconsolate widow gets a communication from her husband that he is a great deal happier now than formerly don't want to come back to her no, thank you would rather not Old maid inquires if husbands are plenty to her great joy is informed that the prospect is good. Little boy asks if when he gets into the other world he can have a long tail coat mother tells him to shut up small boy whimpers and says that hehas always worn a short jacket and he expects that when he gets to Heaven, he'll be a bob-tail Angel Damphooi's attention to the bottle has reassured kis spirits, (he is easily affected by brandy one glass makes him want to treat all his friends when he has two bumpers in him he owns a great deal of real estate, and glass No. 3 makes him rich enough to buy the Custom House) and he now ventures another inquiry of his relative, who shuts him up, by telling him as soon as he gets sober enough to tell Maiden Lane from a light house, to go home and go to bed. Went at it myself; inquired all sorts of things from all kinds of spirits, "black spirits and white, red spirits and grey." Result as follows By means of thumps, knocks, rap3 and spiritual kicks, I learned that Sampson and Hercules have gone in to partnership in the millinery business. Julius Cea3ar is peddling apples and molasses candy. Tom Paine and Jack Sheppard keep a billiard table. Noah is running a canal boat Xerxes and Othello are driving opposition stages. GeergoIII, basset up a caravan, and is waiting impatiently for Kos suth and Barnum to come and go halves. Dow, Junior, is boss of a Methodist camp meeting. Napoleon spends most of his time playing penny "ante" with the three graces. Benedict Arnold has opened a larger bier saloon. John Bunyan is clown in a circus. John Calvin, Dr. Johnson, Syk sey, Plutarch, Rob Roy, Davy Jones, Gen. Jack son and Damphooi's grandfather are about estab lishing a traveling theater, having borrowed the capital, (two per cent a month,) they open with, "How to Pay the Rent" Dr. Johnson in a fancy dance; to conclude with "The Widow's Victim," the principal part by Mr. Pickwick. Jo Smith has bought out the Devil, and is going to convert To phet inte a Mormon Paradise. Shakspeare has progressed in his new play as far as tho fourth act, where he ha3 got the hero seven miles and a half up in a balloon, while the disconsolate heroine is hanging by her hair to a limb over a precipice ; question is, how the heroic lover shall get down and rescue Iris lady love before her hair breaks, or her head pulls off. Spirits now began to come without invitation, like Paddies to a wake. Soul of an alderman called for clam soup and bread and butter. Ghost of a newsboy sung out for the Evening Post All that was left of a Bowery fireman wanted to know if Forty had got her butt fixed, and a new inch and a half nozzle. Ghost of Marmion wanted a dish of soft crabs, and called ont after the old fashion, to charge it to Stanley. Medium had by this time lost all control over her ghostly company. Spirits of waiters, soldiers, tailors, (Damphool trembled,) babies, saloon keepers, dancers, actors, widows, circus-riders, in fact all varieties of obstreperous spirits began to play the devil with things gener ally ; the dining table jumped up, turned two som ersets, and landed with one leg in tho widow's lap, one in Damphooi's mouth and the other two on the toes of the sanctimonious-looking individuals oppo site; the washstand exhibited strong symptoms of a desire to dance the Jenny Lind Polka on Bull Dogge's head; the book -case beat time with extra ordinary vigor, and made faces at the company generally; our walking canes and umbrellas prom enaded round the room in couples, without the slightest regard to corns, or other pedal vegetables, while the bedstead in the corner was extemporizing a comic song with a vigorous accompaniment on the soap-dish, the wash-bowl, and other bed room crockery. Bull Dogge here made a rush for the door, and dashed wildly down Broadway, pursued, as ho avers to this day, by the spirit of an Irishman, with a pickaxe, a handsaw and a ghostly wheelbarrow. Concluding I had seen cnoueh, I took Damphool. and B. D.'s bottle (empty, or he would never have left it,) and went home, satished that "there are more things in heaven and earth than arc dreamed of," except by lying "mediums," so-called; who, too lazy to work, and too cowardly to get an hon orable living by stealing, adopt this method to sponge their bread and butter out of those whom God, in his mysterious wisdom, has seen fit to send on earth, weak enough to believo their idiotic rav- ngs. iJisgus ted, but still yours, y.
