From the Illinois State Gazette.
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
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!
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
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;
"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.
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
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
"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
