Old lady rushes out from a house by the roadside. Tho follow ing colloquy ensues* " ' ■' Old Lady—Say, what have you got tO Sell ? ,, , , Ball—I ain a travelling agent, for the greatest mehagerie of ancient or modern times, whiïh is shortly to be exhibited in this section, affording to the inhabitants thereof an opportunity of viewing the roost stupehdous collec tion of animals ever before exhibited. Old Lady—You don't say 1 Have you arv elephant ? Ball—We have, madame, six ele phant» ; but these constitute a compar atively unimportant part of the show. We have living specimens of of bipeds and quadrupeds, who roamed over the eifi-th not only in tho antedeluvian pe riod, embracing the pliocene and postmiocene period, embracing the megatherium, with six legs and two tails ; tlie icthyosarus, with four eyes and three tails ; tho gyastucus, with no eyeR, two nösos, and four tails ; the plososarns, resembling Satan in shape, which spits (ire and breathes sulphur ; and many other species to numerous (or enumeration. We also have a pious lawyer. Old Lady*—Well, I declare ! Ball—But, madame, the greatest curiosity by far of our exhibition is a learned and classically educated mon key, who was brought up a Moham medan priest in the mysterious regions of the Great Besort of Sahara. This monkey speaks with flueacy all tho modern languages, besides Latin, Greek, and Hebrew, lie can repeat the Ten Commandments, President Lincoln's last message, and perforfns thé most intricate example in mathe matics with rapidity, ease, and accu racy. While being exhibited in Washington he actually repeated a long speech of the President. This pionküy corresponds—— Beautiful young lady suddenly sticks her head from the window and «alls out : "Mother ! mother ! ask him why they let the monkey travel so far ahead of the other critters !" M arriage .—Marriage is a sehool and exeréise of virtue, and though ruarriago hfts cares, yet the Bingle life has desires which are more trouble some and dangerous, and often end in sin, while the cares are but instances of duty and exercises of piety ; and, therefore, if single lite ha?; more priva cy and devotion, yet marriage has more necessities and more varieties if it; it is an exercise of more gracos. Marriage is the propér scene of piety and patience, of the duty of parents snd the charity of relations ; here kindness is spread abroad, and love is. united and made firm as a center. Marriage is the nursury of heaven. The virgin sends prayers to Ood, biR she carries but one Söul to him ; but the state of marriage fills up the num ber of the elect, and has in it the la bor of love and the delicacies of friend ship, the blessings of society, and tho union of hands and hearts. It has in it less of beauty hut more of safety than the single lifo ; it has moro car» bat loss danger ; it is more merry and more sad ; it is fuller of sorrows and and fuller of joys ; it lies under more burdens, but it is supported by all the strength of love and charity, and those burdens are delightful. Marriage is the mother of the world, and preserves kingdoms, and fills cities, and church es and Ileaven itself. Celibacy, liko the fly in the heart of the apple, dwell» '.ii perpetual sweetness, but sits alonw, and is confined and dies in singularity; but marriage, like the useful bee, builds a house and gathers «wootne»s from every flower, and labors and u~ nites into societies and republics, and sends out armies, aud feeds the world with delicacies, and obeys their king and keeps order, and exercises many virtues, and promotes the interest of mankind,, and is that state of good things to whioh God has designed th® present constitution of the y/Qtld.
