I once heard nn old Jour, remark, that a priting office wa3 no place for love making, and I have since 'exper ienced the truth of his observation be ing now perfectly convinced thai the flower of love can never bloom in the midst ol types, stands and printing ink- It was my fortune once to. sojourn for a few days in the village of . Directly opposite the oiTice was a pret ty white cottage, with a rose bush clam bering around the casement, and I was not long in making the discovery that the aforesaid w hite cottage with the rose shaded window, contained a fair in matea flower whose beauty far out shone the roses that clustered around the w indow. She was a little blue eyed, saucy looking creature of some sixteen summers. She was the belle of the village. Her name was Mary sweet poetic Mary. "1 have a poetic passion for the name A ar' It was a bcauiiful summer mornin", and 1 had raised the window to a.mit the cool breeze from the flower decked fields, and it was not long before t per ceived that the cottage window was al so hoisted, and that sweet little Mary was seated near it, busily engaged with her needle. I worked but little that i . morning. iiy eyes constantly wan dered towards ths cottage window, where little Mary sat, and all sorts of strange and fantastic notions whirled through my fancy-lighted brain, and I began to think I fe t a s ight touch of IUU(-1' what the roetsc:dI love, sliding in at the corner of my tieart. A few days passed away, and chance i , . , ' made me acquainted with Mary. Ilea vensl she was a sweet creature she had a form lhat would have shamed the famous Venus de Medici a cheek that oul blushed the richest peach and a lip that would have tempted a bee from is bive on a frosty morning. I thought, as I gj.ZLd "on her in mute admiration, that I had never looked upon one o exquisitely beautiful. She seemed the embodiment of all that is lovely and be w itching. We!!, time passed on, and one day Mary expressed a desire to visit the 1 printing office. Gad! thought I, what j a chance! I'll do it there, yes, there in Well Mary came to the office, and I explained to her the uses of the various implements of the blade art the press and the idler the ink and the stands. ' and the boxes of the A.B C's. I took on opportunity to snatch her pretty lit-ly-white hand, and she diew it back, knocking a stick full of matter into n7 "I must have a kiss for that, my pret ty one," said I and at it I went. 1 managed to twist my arm around her waist, and in struggling to free herself, she upset a galley of editorial, a long article on the Oregon question. Noth ing daunted, I made at her again. This lime I was more successful, for I ob tained a kiss. By St. Paul! it was a SVVeet one and the little witch bore it ... like a martyr she never screamed once but as I raised my lips from hers, she lifted her delicate little hand, and gave me a box on the ears that made me see more stars than ever were view ed by Ilerschel through his big tele scope. Somewhat nettled, and with my cheek smarting with pain, I again seiz ed her waist and said "Well, if . you don't like it, just take back the kiss." She made a desperate struggle, and as she jerked herself from my arms, her foot struck the'ley-pot, and over it went! Another galley of editorial was sprinkl ed over the floor, and in her efforts to reach the door, her foQt slipped and she fell, and in the effort to sustain herself, her hand her lily-white hand; the same little hand that had come in contest with my ears oh, horrible! was struck up to the elbow in the ink keg! Shade of Franklin! what a change came over tho beauty of that hand! She slowly drew it from the keg drip ping with ink, and asked fne what use I made of that tar: 1 began to be ser iously alarmed and apologised in the best manner I could, and to my sur nrise. she seemed rather pleased than anfT-y but there was a "lurking devil in her eye" that to'.d me there was mis chief afloat. As I stood surveying the black covering of her hand, scarcely able to suppress laugh at its strange metamorphosis she quickly raised it on high and brought it down 4,ker slap1' upon my;clieek? Before I could re cover from my surprise; the same lit tle hand had again descended, and again left its inky imprint on my clTeek. ''U hy, Mary," I exclaimed, "what 1 tor inithis district for Jeflerson, Madi are you about V j son, Monroe, and for Henry Clay the '1 think you told me you rolled ink ; first time he was a candidate for the on theyace of the form,"' with a loud ; laugh, and again her hand lit upon my face takii'g me a broad slap in the very middle of my countenance, and rrids wofully bedaubing my eyes. With a light step and merry peal of laughter' she skipped thro" the door. She turn ed back when beyond my reach, and wits roguish face peering in at the door way, skouting back, "I say, Charley, what kind of a rol aer does my hand make?"' "Oh,1' said I, you take too much ink." "II h! ah!" she laughed, well, good bye Charley ihafs my impression ha! ha!" I went to the glass and surveyed my self for a moment and Verily believe I could have passed for a Guinea ne gro without the slightest difficulty. "And so," said 1 to myself, 1 his is i love in a printing office. The devil fly away with such love! The next morning when the editor came to l he office, I "rather calculate" he lound things little topsy-turvy. How ever lhat made no difference to me fori had mizzled long before daylight. I bore the marks of that scene for many a day, and now whenever I see a lady enter a printing office, I think of , little Mary and keep my eye on the ink keg and though she were as beau tiful as Hebe I would not venture to touch her with a ten foot pole! Talk about love iti a boudoir lovo in a bower love on a spring seat sofa ! love by moonlight, s'arlight, lamp light, or my tli-r-krnd uf ligtltp and 1 am with you heart and soul but I pray you by the ghost of Faust, never talk to me about love in a printing of Jce! A Hard Rub for Truth. Old Par son M., of , Worcester county, sometimes used to be absent on a mis sionary tour. Once on a time, having just returned from one of these excur sions, he found his congregation quite drowsy, and wished to wake them up, he broke off in the midst of his sermon and began to tell them of what won derful things he had seen in York State. Anion? other wonders, he said . j that he had seen monstrous great mus quetoes, so large lhat many of them would tcei"h a pound! The people were by this time wideawake. "Ye," continued Parson M., "and moreover, they are often known to climb trees and bark!"" The next dav one of tho deacons call ed upon him, and told him that many of the brethren were much scandalized by the big stories he told the day be; fore. "What stories? says parson M. "Why, sir, you said that the musque toe3 in York State were so large lhat many of them would weigh a pound !" "Well,'1 rejoined the minister, "I do really think that a great man of them would weigh a pound." "But," continued the deacon, you al so said they would climb up on trees and bark!" ''Well, sir," says Parson M., "as to the climbing up on trees, 1 have seen them do that; hav'nt you, deacon!" "Oh, yes." "Well, how can they climb up on the trees, and not climb on the.arA?" The Deacon left. Gen. Taylor. As there appears to be a good deal of squabling among the newspapers in various parts of the coun try, in relation to the birth place of the gallant General Taylor, we may as well put the matter to rest. His sister, Mrs Sarah B. Gray, who resides some two or three miles from 'his city, has in her possession an old "family bible," in which his birth is registered, and from her and it we learn the following facts Gen. Zachary Taylor was born in Orange county. Virginia, on the 24th of November, 1784. Previous to this event his faiher had removed his slaves to this county and purchased land, intending to bring his family here without delay. When they did remove here, Zatchary was only nine -months old. He was raised and educated in this county, and always has considered it and now regards it as his home. His faiher Col. Richard Taylor, was an officer iu the old Continental army, and died at his residence near this city about ten years since. He was an elec- Presidency. Courirr. SONG. EY BARRY CORNWALL. How many summers, love, Have 1 been thine? How many days, my dove, Hast thou been mine? Time, like a winged bird, When't bends the flowers, Hath left no mark behind To count the hours! Some weight of thought, though ioih. On thee he leaves; Some lines of care round bolh, Perhaps he weaves; Some (ears, a soft regret Nor joys scarce known; Sweet looks we half forget All else is flown! Ah! with what thankless heart I mourn and sing; Look, where your children start, Like sudden spring; With tongues all sweet and low, Like a pleasant rhime, They tell how much I owe To thee and thine. "Doing" a Landlord. The affair described in the following story, which we find, without credit, in one of our exchangeSj is j,lst a iiu!e bit" the cool. est specimen of genteel swindling we have ever read or heard of. What ever mortification the land may have felt in being "did." it was certainly kind in Jerry Diddler not to leave him without one consoling reflection; lhat of having been "done brown." A biped, of the genius "sucker," had been tarrying, for several days, in one of the crack hotels in York State, and iiis only reply to the third weekly bill presented by his obsequious and oblig ing host, was, that'ho lacked the need ful." He had been lavish in his style of living, and his bill for wines, cigars, and accompaniments, was by no means an inconsiderable feature in the account. The young gentleman was in his room, with a trio of boon companions; and, ringing the bell, he ordered a cham paigne, and "fixings" for four. The servant returned from below, with the information that the landlord declined lo enlarge his indebtedness, accompanied with a hint that the nc count should now be adjusted, lie im mediately waited on the landlord, re monstrated with him touching the mor tification attendant upon being shown up before "his friends- the wine was up; the party frolicked, and finally se parated, and the next morning, after breakfast, the following "scene occur red." "Mr. ," said the landlord, "I must now insist on the immediate adjustment ol your account." "Can't meet it, sir, to-day, really!" "And why not, sir 2" "Haven't the tin by me, sir." "And you probably won't have?" "Probably not, sir, ot present." "When do you propose to settle?" "Could say, sir, 'pon my honor." "Have you the slightest idea of pay ing it at all?" "I confess, sir, the prospect is exceed ingly dubious." "Your luggage" "Is in my room, sir." - "I shall detain your trunks, sir." "Do if you please, sir." "The largest" "Is filled with wood, sir." "With wood'" "The best of eastern wood." "And the other" "Contains the same article, both saw ed and 3 pi it." "And your wardrobe" "Is on my back, sir." "Upon my word, you take it coolly." "I always do, landlord. The world owes me a living, and I must have it." "You are a scamp, sir." "1 know it. You, sir,- are a gentle man, and I am aware''- Our host stopped him, bit his lips, but, a moment afterwards, turned to the bar and placed a bottle of wine up on the side table near by. Having fill ed a brace of glasses, he handed one of them to the sucker, and the liquor dis appeared. He then presented him with a vase" filled with regalies. "Take another," said the landlord, in the politest possible manner, "take half-a-dozen, sir; there, that will do. The world may owe you a living, per haps it does. 1 think you will agree with me, however, that I have paid my share of the account. I have, in my day, seen a good deal of impudence-, and my calling has brought in contact with a variety of rascality, but I must sa without, howeVer, intending to b too personal in this matter that, with out exception, you are the coolest spe cimen of a genuine scamp that it has ever Veen my .luck to meet with. John?1 A bully servant answered the sum mons. "John, remove this fellow into the street; and, if you value j our situation, see that he does not return." The hint was enough, our customer did not wait for further demonstration, but immediately decamped, to "do" some other host; while his gentlemanly landlord proceeded to examine those trunks, the contents of which, as it turned cut, had been faithfully describ ed. Tun Magnetic Telegraph between Baltimore and Philadelphia was in sue cessful operation yesterday. After a full test had been made between Balti more and Philadelphia, the wires of the Philadelphia and Washington Tele graph were united, and roessages sent direct from the former to this city. This is the longest line of the electric telegraph ever operated upon, being one hundred and forty miles, and the mes sages were sent in a space of time im perceptible to the human mind. iVak Lit.

Brad lord's company from Pontotoc, and Capt. McCiung's from Columbus, also arrived on yesterday, and with our Natchez friends, makes 12 companies in this city. Cap:. McClung was re ceived yesterday evening, completing the Regiment. We hope Gov. Brown w ill receive the whole, indeed were we in his place, we should accept, under all tho circumstances, twofull regi rnenls, and tender them to. the Presi dent, and after infaraiing him that they could not be held back, throw upon the Department the responsibility of refusing them, and the whole would be received.

The amount of du ties now, will but barely cover the list of expenses, and they are hourly in creasing. Where is the wisdom of re ducing the national funds, and then, to meet our expenses, be cbmpelled to borrow, or leave our debts unpaid. We do hope there is yet wisdom enough in Congress to let the tarifTstand, and the sub treasury bill lie over, until the watr with Mexico is ended or till dooms day, which would probably be betteri -St. Lou.
