S cene in a k bntdck V C ourt house:.— i d the good old time» in Kentucky, "when substantial just ice" wäB administered in a log cabii), alter a very free and easy manner, a suit, was brought to recover certain moneys which it was dlleged plain tiff had beén defrauded out of by the ingénions operation known as "thim ble rigging." In the course of the, trial, plaintiff's counsel, who hap pened to be an "expert," undertook to enlighten the court as to the modus operandi of the performance. Putting himself into position, he firodaced the three cups and "the ittle joker," and proceeded, suiting the action to the Word: "Then may it please the court, the defendant placing the cups on Iiis knee thus, began shifting them so, offering to bet that my client t could not tell under which enp was 'the little joker,meaning thereby, may it please thé court, this ball, with the intention of defrauding my client of the sum thus wagered. For instance, when I raise the cap bo, your honor supposes that you see the ball.", "Suppose I see !" interrupted the judge, who had closely watched thd performance, and was Bare that he deteçted the ball, as one of the caps was accidentally raised. "Why, any fooï'can Bee wùere it is, and bet on it, and be sure to win. Thete ain't no ! defraudin' thar." "Perhaps your honor W6uld like to go a V on it ?" insinuated the C unsel. "Go a V? Yes, and double that, too, and here's the rhino. It is under the middle cup " "I'll go a V on that," said the foreman of the jury. «'And I, and I," joined in the jurors, one after the other, until each one had invested his pile. "Up !" said his honor. "Up" it was, but the "little joker" had mysteriously disappeared. Judge and jury were enlightened, and found no difficulty in bringing in a verdict In faror of the plaintiff on the ground that it was the "dt rudest kind o' defraudin." m V ampyreb F attening on the L ife-blood of the N ation .—Jay Cook is worth fifteen millions of dol lars. He made his fange fortune in manipulating that "public blessing," the three thousand million debt. Six millions of working men are sweating and toiling to keep up the interest on this fifteen millions, made in four short years, and the interest on the balance of the three thousand mil lions, other money-bloated, non-pro ducers hold, in shape of public bonds. The mechanic works ten hours a day ; three hours a day, he toils for the Jay Cook tribe, who quarterly expect their interest. The working man pays for all he or his family require, double what he would otherwise have to pay, had we none of the Jay Cook class of public bond holders to take care of. The Jay Cook Co., tbe great capitalists of the country, live in luxury, and have not a per sonal want ungratified ; while starva tion is taking place in the ruined South, and hundreds of thousands in the North are approaching that condition. Oily tongues, and facile pens, are painting the "blessings of a public debt," while penury and want are spreading over the land. The riches of the bondholders are the burdens of the people.— New York Day Booh. A B right L ight .—"JohnBon, you say Brown was the man who robbed you ?" *'Ye», sir." "Was it moonlight when it took place ?" "No, sir." "Was it starlight ?" "No ; It was so dark you couldn't see your hand before your face." "Well, was there any light shin ing from any bouse near by?" "Why, no: there wasn't a house within a mile of us." "Well, then, if there was no moon, no starlight, no light from any house, and so dark that you couldn't see your band before your face, how is it that you are so positive that Brown was the man, and bow did you see him ?" "Why, you see, when the fellow struck me, the fire flew out of my eyes so bright that you might sea to pick up a pin."
