A Washington letter says "Gen. Cass grows

by his present condition.
A Mr. Jackman, who had been confined four
teen months in tho Bangor jail, for debt, was re
cently discharged by his creditor. Jackman
objects to being turned out of doors during tho
cold weather, and pioposes to bring suit against

creditor had promised hiin a homo for life if ho
did not pay the debt The debt has not been
paid, and Jackman insists upon tho fulfillment

Is Ihd'IIiidson County (N. j.) Court, last
Tuesday, a constable named Thomas McCalie,
charged with using unnecessary violence in ar
resting a woman, was fined $100 and costs, and
sentenced to be imprisoned thirty days. Mc
I Cabe arrested Mrs. Walton at lloboken, on sus
I picion of being Mrs. Hartung, recently convict
ed at Albany, of murdering her husband. Ho
went to her privato room, in the absenco of her
husband, and in a ruffianly manner seized her,
tore open her dress, and proceeded to search for
a mole described to bo on the person of Mrs.
Hartung. He refused "to show a warrant or
I other authority for his acts, and only ceased his
bru tality when a police officer compelled him to
desist. The constable richly deserved the pen
I alty imposed.
The Boston papers tell a pretty good story of
I a young man in that city; who recently invited
a lady to join him in skating. They met at the
appointed time, but the lady had no skates, and
of courgca pair must bo provided. Accordingly
they repaired to a dealer in the article, and the
I shopman displayed a fine pair of seven and a
I half dollar articles, and was rewarded only by a
high bred stare of astonishment 011 the part of
the lady, and the curt inquiry, "Have you no
better ones?" "Certainly, madam," said the
obliging salesman, as he unrolled a pair of twen"
ty-fivo dollar runners, and laid them upon tho
counter. "Ah! those will answer nicely , I will
keep these, would not you t" said she, with a
glance at her once happy but now dumbfounded
friend. "By?by all means," came fluttering
from tho young gent, as, with an odd grimace,
the money was planked, and the twain loft for
their spot t.
An Emitokial Dicea* os Wkddinu Cake. A
bachelor editor out West, who had received from
the fair hand of a bride a piece of elegant wed
ding cake to dream on, thus gives the result of
"We put it under the head of our pillow, shut
our eyes sweetly as an infant blessed with an
I easy conscience, and soon snored prodigiously.
The god of dream gently touched 11s, and prc
I sently in fancy we were married. Never was a
little editor so happy. It was " iny love, "
"dearest," "sweetest," ringing in our cars every
moment. Oh, that the dream had broken ofT
here! But no! somo evil genius put it into the
head of our ducky to have pudding for dinner,
[just to please her lord.
"In a hungry dream we sat down to dinner.
Well, the pudding moment arrived, and a huge
slice obscured from sight the plate before us.
" 'My dear,' said we, fondly, 'did you make
" 'Yes, love; ain't it nice?'
" 'Glorious?the best bread pudding I ever
tasted in my life.'
" 'Plum pudding, ducky,'suggested my wife.
" 'Oh, no, dearest, bread pudding. 1 was al
ways fond of 'em.'
" 'Call that bread pudding?' said my wife,
while her lips slightly curled with contempt.
'"Certainly, iny dear?reckon I've had enough
at the Sherwood Hou.so to know bread pudding,
my love, by all means.'
"'Husband! this is really too bad?plum
pudding is twice as hard to make as bread pud
ding, and is more expensive, and a great deal
belter. I say this is plum pudding, sir!' and
my pretty wife's brow flushed with excitement
" "My love, my s* eet, my dear love,' exclaim
ed we, soothingly, 'do not get angry, I am suro
it's very good, but it is bread pudding.'
'? 'You mean, low wretch,' fiercely replied my
wife in a higher tone, 'you know it's plum pud
" 'Then, ma'am, it is so meanly put together
and so biidly burned that the" devil himself
! wouldn't know it I tell you, madam, most
distinctly and emphatically, and I will not be
contradicted, that it is bread pudding?and the
very meanest kind, at that
" 'It is plum pudding!' shrieked my wife, as
she hurled a glass of clurct in my face, the glass
itself tapping the claret from my nose.
" 'Bread pudding!' gisped we, pluck to the
last, and grasping a roasted chicken by tho left
" 'Plum pudding!' rose above the din, as we
had a distinct perception of two plates smash
ing across our head.
"'Bread pudding!' we groaned in a rage, as
the chicken left our hand, and flying with swift
wings across tho table, landed in madam's bo
" "Plum pudding!' resounded tho war cry from
the oneiny, as the gravy dish took ine whero
wo had been depositing the first part of our
dinner, and a plate of beets landed upon our
'"Bread pudding forever!' shouted we in de
fiance, dodging the soup tureen, and falling be
neath its contents.
" 'Plum pudding!' yelled tho amiable spouse,
as noticing our misfortune, she determined to
keep us down by piling on our head the dishes
with no gentle hand. Thon, in rapid succession,
followed the war cries. 'Plum pudding!' she
shrieked with every dish.
" 'Bread pudding!' in smothered tones, camo
up from the pile. Then it was 'Plum pudding,'
in rapid succession, the last cries growing fee
bler and feebler?till, just as I can recollect, it
had grown to a whisper. 'Plum pudding,' re
sounded like thunder, followed bra tremendous
crash, as our wifo leaped upon the pile with her
delicate feet, and commenced jumping up and
down?when, tbanfc Heaven, wo awoke?and
thus saved our life. Weshall never dream on
wedding cake again."
