'- For somebody'! wife," I am told by my mother. Well, that being true, 'Somebody " keeps himself strangely from view; And if not but marriage will settle my fete, I believe I shall die in an unsettled state ; Tor, though I'd. no! ugly pray, what woman is ? auu uiigui easily nna a more ieauiiiut pniz: And then, as for temper and manners, 'tis plain He who seeks for perfection will seek mi in rain. Say, in spite of .ikese drawbacks, my heart is perrerse. And I ht..iid not fel grateful, "for better or worse," To tae tue first body that graciously came, And nfi-red those treasures his horns and his name. I thin., then, my chances of marriage are small. But why should I think of such chances at all ? My brothers are, all of them, younger than I, Yet ih-y thrive in the world, and why not let me try? I know that in business I'm not an adept. Because from such matters most strictly I'm kept; But this is the question that puzzles my mind Why ax I not trained np to work of some kind ? Uselessly, aimlessly drifting through Hie. Why should I wait tp be " somebody's wife ? " Chamber's Ediuburg Journal. It is related that a diffident Hart ford bachelor went to the sea shore in August to seek refuge from the loneli ness of the celibacy, and one dark even ing, enjoying the breeze on the piazza of his hotel, happened to take a seat that had just been vacated by the husband of a loving wife, with whom the happy man had been chatting. In a few moments 'he lady returned, and mistaking the stranger for her husband, lovingly en circled his neck, and gave him an affec tionate kiss, with the remark, " Come, darl ng, is it not about time to retire?" He did not faint, but the shock was very severe. Enlisting Negroes in the Union Armt. The Nashville Union tells the following matter-of-fact good one: A slaveholder from the country ap proached an old acquaintance, also a slaveholder, residing in this city, the other day, and said: "I have several negro men lurking about here somewhere. I wish yon would look out for them, and when yon find them do with them as if they were your own." "Certainly I will,'' replied his friend. A few days ago the parties met again, and the planter asked: "Have von found my slaves?'' "I have"." "And where are they?" . "Well, you told me to do with them just as if they were my own, and, as I made my men enlist in the Union Army, I did the same with yours!" The astounded planter absquatulated. An officer who was inspecting his company one morning, spied one private whose fhirt was badly begrimmed. " Patrick O'Fin," called out the captain. " Here, yer honor," promptly responded Patrick, with hand to his cap. " How long do yon wear a shirt ?" thundered the officer. u Twenty-eight inches !" was the rejoinder. Jeff's House. The Hartford Post is responsible for the following capital ap plication of the plan of " the House that Jack built" to the house that Jeff. Davis is trying to build: I. The Southern Confederacy.

Many years ago, at a dinner party in Glasgow, there via.3 present a lawyer of very sharp practice, fond of giving toasts or sentiments. After the cloth was removed, and the bottle had gone round once or twice the ladies withdrew to the higher pleas ures of the drawing room, all but a very plain old maid. She remained behind, and as the conversation began to be a little masculine, our friend of the long robe was anxious to get rid of the " ancient," and for this purpose rather prematarely asked Thrumbstbe privilege of giving a toast This being granted, he arose and gave the toast of " Honest men and bonny lasses." The toast was drank with all honor, when the dame, who was sitting near the lawyer, rose from her seat, gave the lawyer a poke in the ribs, with the end of her finger, and after having said, "Mr. the toast neither applies to yon or me," then left the room.

Steamer- The river is receding slowly but the channel is washing out and navigation remains about the same as for a week past. The officers of the Colossus report 23 incbes at French Island, the worst place hence to Louisville. They also report the Hastings, Fisher and Pocahontas aground at French Is land, and the mighty Colossus was there detained many valuable hours. The Huntsman arrived from Cairo about half past 11 o'clock on Thursday night In order to give the Des Moines City an open field she lays over until to-day at noon when she will leave, under com mand of that veteran and unsurpassable officer, Commodore Dexter, chief of the Evansville and Cairo packet Kne, who thrives on opposition, and can get a boat through aa long as the ground is a little moist. Fred Huston is the courte ous and popular clerk. The Colossus arrived about 2 o'clock yesterday having been detained several hours as indicated above. Speaking of the Colossus, the erudite and astute editor of the river depart ment of the New Albany Ledger thus in diteth, truthfully and eloquently: She is the fleetest low water boat afloat Capt Cox, her commander, is a gentleman, with whom to travel is a real pleasure. He abates no effort to make a trip on the Colussus most agreeable to passengers. Her cabin is finely fur nished her berths, the very best, and her tables well, we can't do the subject i justice, lhose old tavontes ot the pub lic, trunk hsanksmith and tne gay ana festive" Dick Cox are her clerks. Dr. Green does the mail and the fountain of the jolly "old Back" is presided over by one of the pleasantest gentlemen that ever mixed a julep. The Pocahontas got off French Island bar, where she has been for several days, and passed down yesterday with a gov ernment trip. The Delaware is due here this even ing for Henderson and Louisville. She may not arrive until Sunday. coramander.'anrf Mr. (ie'org'e Asheraft, a ! most courteous gentleman, is her chief Clerk. ; The fine light draught steamer Cor. ! delia Ann. Capt. Joe.

Uncle Sam has seized all the light boats at Cairo, and those that arrive there, and all the light boats at St Louis i and Memphis to transport muskets, and ; men to carry them, and truck to feed the men on.
