National Republican. WASHINGTON, D. C, APRIL 11, ISSL SAMPLE BALLADS. BY JOHNS' DOWNS. He had called to see his sweetheart. And her hand in his was clasped ; As he put his lips close to her cheek, And "just one" meetly asked. he turned her eves toward the clock, And whispered, "So I sec:" He turned his steps toward the street, And heard her turnlho key. Put awav her little seal-skin, Hang ft up behind the door, All her davs of winter pleasure And of s"leigh-rides now are o'er; Give her time to look about her And the situation grasp ; Spring is here, and soon her molars Through the stiff ice-cream will rasp. Did you know one Mary, A charming missionary, Who once taught in the groves or Timbuctoo? Did you hear-that by a thorn Her dress was badly torn. And that her dainty limb fctuck through? She called herself a fairy. That tender missionary. Who was martvred on the soil of Timbuctoo; She walked upon the roof Of a native's hut for proof; But was eaten 'cause her mortal limb stuck through. A FiHiny Eot-OIIlcc Scene. A reporter spent an afternoon near the general-delivery window at the post-office. The Chinese callers "for letters were very few. The first was dressed in his native costume, and wore his queue wrapped around his head. He edged up to the window and said: " Me wantee lettee." The mail matter was looked over, but the clerk not finding theexpectedletter.theChinaman, with a disappointed air, walked away. The next China man came in company with a large Irish woman. Flic stepped np to the window, followed by the Chinaman, and asked: " Is there any letthcrs for Tim Cullins? " The clerk ran over the letters, and said there was none. ' Where would you expect a letter from?" he asked. "Twould be a Chinese letther," she replied. "It's for me husband, Tim Culllus. Tim, step up here and tell this gintleman ye wants a letther." The Chinaman obeyed meekly. Jle wantee lettee, samee Melican man. Me mallied to Ilish woman; goee West by-um-by," he said. The letter was handed out to him. " He's a foine man," said'Mrs. Cullins, confiden tially, to the clerk, "nc's the son of a Chinese nobleman, and we're goin' home some time. Tim, come along," and she led the Celestial away. "Do you have many such callers?" the reporter asked of the clerk. "Oh, yes ; there are a number of Chinamen in the city who are married to Irish women, and their wives always come with them for theirmaiL" Ao York Sun. FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL NEWS, The following observations on the transactions in the financial market Saturday, together with open. Ini;. highest, lowest, and closing quotations, are fur nished by the banking-house ofH. D. Cooke, jr., & Co., 1429 F street, Washington. D. C: We have nothing of interest to record concerning Saturday's market, or in fact the entire past week's market. Prices have varied very insignificantly, there having been no newsto cause a decided move in cither direction. Tlie range of fluctuations has been very limited.with few exceptions, being barely enough to rover commissions, and the trading has been ex tremely light and insignificant. The opinion In Wall street is that, reckoning from a basis of intrinsic merits, prices are entirely too high; at the same time there is such an enormous "short" interest extant that the slightest favorable news would scare the mul titudinous class of" shorts," and cause them to cover their interests. In this case the "bulls" would take advantage of the necessity of the covering shorts and make them pay high for their stocks, going "long" themselves to take advantage of the rise. For this reason operators must be very careful how they sell short. The market is undoubtedly too high, Intrinsic ally, but it is so oversold that it Is difficult to borrow any stock, and it seems that the next important move on 'Change must be the buying of stocks by the par ties who are at present "short." Tills must not bere jninled as a prediction ofultimatc higher prices. We would merely notify traders that it is not prudent to rell stocks with so many people on that side of the market. The list on Saturday night shows an ad vance of ;4 to 1V per cent., the latter Central Pacific Money at 5 to C per cent.
