At Bret reproaches, but afterward menaces wera the consequences of this conduct. The gentleman persis ted, aud seemed every day to become addicted to his botlle. One evening, when she imagined him dead drunk, she unsewed a leaden weight from ope of the sleeves of her gown, and, having melted it, she approached her liUfbiinJ, who pretended still to be sound ahleep, in order to put it into his tar though a pipe.

In the two first named Slates the depredations of the grasshoppers have been compara tively insignificant. Unless some unlooked-for calamity occurs, the pro ducers will realize a far grtater leturu for their labor than ever before. In Kcntcky, Michigan, Ohio, Missouri and the Kastern Slates, there Is every prospect of a far belter yield than heretofore, and the production will ba far iu excess of the consumption. The production of these States is represent ed as being much superior iu quality to that of former years. It is a nota ble fact that for the lirst time in twelve years the South will raise sufllcient iireaustulls tor home use. Tins, ot course, relieves theNorth from the ne cessity of shippiug grain iu that direc tion, and euables us to Bupplythe deficiency in the European markets. Oats promise an extraordinarily large yield, iu some sections the heavy rains that have fallen recently have lodged the graiu somewhat, and the chinch bug elsewhere has caused some damage, but there is every indication that the yield will be at least forty-five to fifty bushels to the acre, aud in many sections much larger. Kye and barley promise well. These crops are not extensively grown, but there is every indication that the sup ply will be fully equal to the demand. Corn is not yet matured in the North west. In Alabama, Mississippi, Geor gia aud some parts of Arkansas and Tennessee, the crop has been harvested aud is more abundant than for many years, iu Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Oiiio aud Indiana the crop is back ward, but unless frosts should occur previous to the middle of September there is no reasou to apprehend a short crop. Iu Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan tiie backwardness of the crop is such that there is little hope of more than halt a crop, but as those States raise but little corn, the dimin ution of the crop there will have but little influence ou the supply. Potatoes will yield a full crop in all secllous. The Colorado bug is only seen for the most part in the Kasteru Slates. In the West it has disappeared, having been almost entirely extermi nated by the heavy raius. Some com plaint of its depredations comes from parts of Ohio, bill none from the West. A Shadder. After remarking that harvest apples hadn't matured half ripe yet, his Honor picked up tho warrants and nodded toward the corridor. The lirst one out was a matchswaisled female named Sophia Sullivan, ami her face couldu't have looked more sorrowful had she lost 11 f teen cents and a coral ring. "Mrs. Sullivan, you are charged with disturbing the peace," remarked the court; "in oilier words, viz, to wit, as follows, you assaulted your bus baud, cut his scslp open with a plate, and reduced him to that point where he couldu't tell the difference between a Saratoga regatta and the new Sarto ris baby." "Well, I did hit bin .. .j.ildge, aud I hit him pretty huide ' -ne said, "And your excii-t-V "There's been a slia,t.ler on my life for tiie last five years,-' hhe went on. ".V ol the name o that shadder is wl, '.'."' '-!., ousbaiid hutiiiiie because I've got red hair and a turn-up nose!" she sobbed. "Great shades ! but is that so?'' "I t is, your Honor. He comes home drunk, abuses me, aud I get desperate and tight back." "Mrs. Sullivan, go home go back to your abiding-place. Vour husband is a rhinoceros a lunatic. Hate hair and a nose like that! The man ought to be boiled iu tar! I'll get him down here some day aud he'll think a horse barn fell upou him!" Detroit Free 1'rcss- A new obituary poem ofj extraordi nary merit appears in the columns of the Philadelphia Led(er. It is on the death of an infaut atced nine weeks aud five days, and reads thus: Little Clara was our darling, Pride of all our friends at homo. But a breeze came lloating lightly, Came and whispered "Clara, come." In the snmo number of the Ledger is this beautiful and ingenious variation of the same poem : Little Lizzie was our darling, Prido of all our friends at home ; lint a breeze came Hunting lightly, Came and whispered, Lizzie, come." Who would not give millions to know the author of these inimitable productions'.' A simple introduction to hint were a liberal education. And One Bean. "Chawles, Chawles, bwing me ah a tiiiall a vewy small piece of beef ah about the size of a half a dollah. Do you understand, Chawles V" said a delicate youth to a restaurant waiter. " Ves, sah, ina moment, sail, 'said the darkey. As ho started od", a great raw-boned fellow silting near by yell ed after him, " Wailaw, waitaw !" " Yes, sah ; what will you have, sah?" The eyes of all iu tho room were upon the muscular countryman as he draw led forth, " Chawles, Chawles, bwing me a small a vewy smull piece of pork ah and one Lean. Do you un derstnud Chawles?"
