Artemcs Ward:
Dear Sir I have never heard any of
your lectures, but from what I can learn
I should say that for people who like the
kind of lectures you deliver, they are
just the kind of lectures such people
like. Yours, respectfully,
O. Abe.
Aetkmcs Ward:
Respected Sir My wife was afflicted
with the pipsywipsy in the head for near
ly eight years. The doctors, all gave
her up. But in a fortunate moment she
went to one of your lectures, and com
menced recovering very rapidly. She is
now in perfect health. We like your
lectures very much. Please send me a
box of them. Tbey are purely vegeta
ble. Send me another five dollar bill
and I'll write you another certificate
twice as long as this.
Yours, Ac, Amos Pilkixs.

A Popular Danish Story. In the
village of Ebberup, in Fnnen, there lived
a very wealthy farmer, who had to go
one day to Assens with a load of barley;
so one of his neighbors, a cottager, asked
leave to go along with him for the sake
of fetching home some goods in the emp
ty cart The farmer had no objection,
so the cotter followed the cart on foot,
and as it was a very hot day, he pulled
off his Worsted stnWinrrs and vrnnrlon
shoes, and stuffed them under the barley
in the back of the cart. It happened to
be Sunday, and they had to pass close
by a church on the roadside. The man
had got a little way behind the cart, so
he could hear that the minister was in
the pulpit .It struck him that as the
farmer was driving very slow, he might
as well turn in and hear a bit of the
sermon; he could soon make up to the
cart again. He did not like to go so far
into the church that the minister could
see him, so he stood inside the door.
The Gospel for that day was about the
rich man and the beggar. Just as the
traveler entered the church, the minis
ter shouted out:
" But what became of the rich man?"
The Ebberup man thought the minis
ter was speaking to him, so he stepped
forward and said :
" He drove on to Assens with a load of
barley."
"No!" thundered the minister, "he
went to hell."
"Mercy on on us!" cried the other,
running out of the church, " then I must
look after my shoes and stockings! "
Diddler invited two or three to take a
drink and was telling big stories of him
MK " Come," said one of the party, " you
have told us what you can do now tell
us what you cannot do."
" Weil, that's easily done," replied
Diddler; "I can't pay for the drinks you
have just had! "
Two distinguished philosophers took
shelter under one tree during a heavy
shower. After some time, one of them
complained that he felt the rain. "Never
mind," replied the other, ' there are
plenty of trees, when this one is wet
through we will go to another.''
"Talk of raining bricks," said Dr.
Spooner, in a late shower, as he made
the fifth ineffectual attempt to attract a
driver, " 'tis nothing to hailing omni
buses." Life is a constant struggle for riches,
which we must soon leave behind. They
seem given to us as a nurse gives play
things to a thing, to amuse us until it
falls asleep.
A"wiie man of Gotham " made a
servant sleep in a chamber adjoining his
own. He cried out to him on one occa
sion, " George, am I asleep ?"
"Yea, sir," replied the conscientious
George.
"Ah, good."
Mrs. Partington is of opinion that
Mount Vesuvius should take sarsaparilla
to cure itself of eruption?. The old lady
thinks it has been vomiting so long noth
ing else would stay on its stomach
" Sam, why don't you talk to massa,
and tell him to lay up treasures in
heaven?
"What for? What de use of laying
up treasures dere, where he never see
em again?"

To the great joy of boatmen, the river
is rising, having swelled some five or six
inches in the 24 hours up to five o'clock
last evening. All the streams hunce to
Louisville are running out copiously,
and the Wabash is also rising, so that
we may safely expect an improved state
of navigation soon. There were, at last
reports, 3J feet on Portland Bar and 30
inches hence to Cairo.
The J. T. McCombs arrived from Lou
isville early yesterday morning, having
come through without touching bottom.
She was detained all of Wednesday night
by fog. She looks extremely handsome
and natural, and Captain Ballard, her
popular commander, is roseate with
health, and looks bright as the first gild
ing of the rising orient. Travelers and
shippers have cause to congratulate
themselves on the return of Capt Bal
lard with the "John Thomas" to the
trade. The courteous and affable Gwath
ney rules the office.
The Huntsman went out at 1 o'clock
yesterday with a magnificent trip, in
cluding more passengers than she could
room. Capt Dexter and Fred. Huston,
her insuperable chief officers, draw like
the lyre of Orpheus.
Our readers will bear in mind that the
D. B. Campbell, a first-class low water
boat, leaves every evening for Hender
son, and returning early in the morn
ing, connects with the Railroad.
There is a vast accumulation of freight
at this point waiting shipment, and a
great want of tonnage to carry it off.

Our friends Cox & Humphrey, are al

Captain Sweeney, of Wheeling has
sold the Ben Franklin to parties in New
Orleans for $27,500.
Captain Sedam, sold the Belfast on
Wednesday, for $11,000 cash, to parties
from New York. The Belfast has just

A Memphis dispatch of the 6th to the
Cincinnati Commercial says ;
The Norman, Captain F. Y. Batchelor,
in company with the Emma No. 3, Po
land, Westmoreland, Madison, Sir Wm.
Wallace, Eclipse, and Glasgow, arrived
safely at this point last night at mid
night, having on board two brigades and
battery belonging to the loth Army
Corps, General W. T. Sherman.
But little of interest occured on thi3
more than tedious trip only one week
out from Vicksburg. An incident did
occur, however, that I wish all steam
boatmen to be advised of, viz:
General William Sewell Smith, com
manding this division of the 15th Army
Corps, took passage, together with his
staff, on the steamer Madison, Captain
D. W. Maratta A short time after com
ing on board, he approached Captain M.
with a revolver in each hand, and in a
polite, mild, conciliatory and gentle
manly way informed bim that, should
the boat be burned on the trip, he would
instantly shoot him.
The same game was tried on Captain
Beltshoover, of the Luminary. Before
leaving Vicksburg, Gen. Com'g issuing
orders to the effect that, should the boat
be lost on the" trip, the officers would be
executed on the spot Captain Belts
hoover, seconded unanimously by his
crew, at once determined to abandon the
boat unless the order was rescinded,
which was done. Steamboat officers can
draw their inferences concerning these
matters.
By the way, the Madison was the only
boat that met with an accident onup-trip.
At Island 64 she picked up a snag on
her forward quarter, starboard side, it
passing upward through the boiler-deck,
precipitating several mules and horses
into the river. Some lives were lost,
but I am unable to state how many.
We clip the following from the Louis,
ville Journal of yesterday:
The Conway, in charge of Capt. Pink
v amie, leit lor ianneiton yesterday to
bring up a tow of coal for this city.

The Tarascon will be launched from
Howard's shipyard at Jefferson ville at 2
P. M. to-day.
She is to be a magnificent steamer.
Twenty-five stern-wheel and four side
wheel steamers are now building at
Pittsburg. Of the latter, one is as large
as the great Cincinnati.
Capt Carroll's St. Louis and New Or
leans steamer will be launched at Can-
nelton next week.
t On her last trip up from Memphis,
aeverai attempts were made to tire the
Bteamer Commercial. The boat had two
Ohio regiments aboard, and it is thought
some new recruits from Dixie and others
of the regiment were guilty of the at
tempted incendiarism.
" Before the steamer Belle Memphis
left St Louis on her last trip to Memphis
the captain received several annony
mous letters, informing him that the boat
would be burned before she left the
former. In consequence of this threat,
a strong guard was established, and no
signs of fire cr attempts at incediarism
were discovered until after the steamer
had left Memphis, on her return trip to
St Louis, when six spherical case shot
were found in the coal box, where they
had been deposited by some person or
persons, in the hope that, being undis
covered, the shell would be thrown into
the furnaces and explode the boilers.
The gallant Colossus, Capt. Cox, with
Messrs. Banksmith and Dick Cox, is due
here to-night, but will more probably
leave here about noon to-morrow. Look
out for the elegant Colossus.
