At this juncture, however, Mick, the host ler, made his appearance with a lantern, which he held up to the physic-smeared face of the enraged travller, with a polite request that he would "hould his tong." But Mick was at last compelled to -give his fellow countrymen a good beating, which had the effect to restore him to gped humor, and when he found that he was not poisoned, after all, he retired once more to his bed to dream of the "farrum" which he was going to Duy in uie -wesinern country, JC3rTo spite a 'fellow that is waiting on your girl, just hide his hat, under the stove, for instance. tmtcnprKnivcs and buck wheat cakes 1' but its capital. . t3TTbe editor of the Yankee Blade, gives the following, among other "hints oil matri mony: "iJon t be surprised, it atteryou have sailed smoothly, about nine months, on tha'voyage of matrimcr-y, you are over- The Half Married Man. .

The Squire proceeded slowly in the cere mony, keeping a watchful eye on the intend ed bride, whose mysterious manner excited a suspicion, that a screw was loose some where. When, however, he came to the re sponse of the groom, the solemn scene was disturbed by something like a stentorian yell. "Whoop! you better believe it ! Why, of course I'll take 'er who is it 'sputes it? What did I come here for ? May bet your life on that. Go on, Squire now give her a haze." The Squire, in turn, performed the service which was to extort acquiescence to her lov er's wishes ; but instead of the precious words, " I will;' gushing up from the pure fountain of, her maiden heart, a NO blunted the senses of the Squire and groom.

Ida had er ! known at the young man who is half mar- rted. if ester nimper, Theory of Humor. To see a young officer 14 years of age, jcome into company in full uniform, and with make everybody laugh, because it certainly is a very unusual combination of objects, and such as would not atone for its novelty by any particular purpose of utility to which it was QJ j , subservient. It is a complete instance of j incongruity. Add ten years to the age of thisincongru-j ou officer, the incongruity would be veryi faintly diminished; make him eighty years ( of age, and a celebrated military character ! of the last reign, and the incongruity van-: ishes. I am not sure that we should not be rather more disc osed to respect the peculiar-1 ty than to laugh atit. As youincrease the in congruity, you increase the humor. If n tradesman of a corpulent and respec- table appearence, with habiliments somewhat ostentatious' were to slide, down gently in the mud, and decorate a pea-green coat I am afraid we chould all have the barbarity to laugh. If his hatand wig, like treacerous servuiita, were to desert their falling master, it certainly would not diminish our propensi ty to laugh; but if he were to fall into a vio lent passion, and abuse everybody aoout him, nobody could possibly resist the incon-. gruity of a pea-green tradesman, very re-j spectable, sitting in the muu, anu tnreawn ing all the passers-by with the effects of wrath.. Here every incident heightens the humor of the scene; the gaiety of his tunic, the ceneral respectability of hia spperance, ! the rills Of muddy wates which trickle down his checks, and the harmless violence of his ratel But if. instead of this, we were to ob serve -a dustman falling into the mud, it would hardly attract any Pttention, because the opposition of ideas is so trifling, and the incongruity so slight.

We have no direct means of divining the "why and because" of certain predilecti'ons and prejudices observable in birds and other animals. We daily see actions among them for which wevcannot in any way account, Thus, for instance, if a dog enter a room lull of company, you shall presently observe him make a careful tour of the apartment, snuf- fin.r first, atone, then at another of the as- sembled guests.

William Kidd, in the Gar dener't Chronic'e. Tub triib IIionBn Law Doctbinb. No thing has excited our surprise more than to witness the great variety of opinions express ed among Christian men on the question, I whether there is a higher law than the law of the land. A vast amount of absurdity land nonsense has been published, both from ' the pulpit and the press, in regard to it. The true ground is stated in a nut-shell, in a Thanksgiving sermon, by ine ney. Albert Barnes. He held, that when a civil law con flicts with Ood's law, it is our duty first to use our lawful influence to secure its repeal ; secondly to refrain from forcible resistance, single or combined, unless the case should justify a i evolution; thirdly to obey con science ana suncr ine penalty, tie lurmer maintained, that the constituted authorities are the judges of the constitutionality of any law but they cannot determine a question of conscience. In his inferences he found cause for thanksgiving, in the general con formity of our laws to Clod's law, and said thatit was wonderful that, in thirty-one States, Ieo few enactments should hare contravened fthatlaw.

He would occasionally find a poor, worn-out animal that had been left behind; end as it was not important to him to speed his course, till he reached the end of his journey, when it was discovered that he had an uncommon fine team and a good wagon, which produ ced him on sale twenty-Jive hundred dollars. Being now relieved of the care of his team, and in the midst of the gold region, he clo sed his prospecting by a location, and while I all around hira were concentrating their strength to consumate the work of years is a tow months, he deliberately commenced building, finishing', and as fast as he could, furnishing a comfortable cabin.

During hi confinement, trial, and even when the sentence of death was pronounced upon him, he showed little or no contrition of heart, or even a sensibility which every one is supposed to possess to a greater or less degree.
