YANKEE COURTSHIP.
After my sleigh ride last winter, and the slippe
ry trick I was served by Patty Bean, nobody would
suspect me of hankering after woman again fh «
hurry. To bear me cuiie and «wear, aiArail out a
gainat the whole feminine gender, you#ould have
taken it for granted that J never should *6 much as
look at one of them again, to all eternity. O! bat
I was wicked; "dam and »last their eyes," says I,
"blatte their skins, torment and dam their hearts,
and dam them to demotion." Finally, I took an
oath, and swore that if ever I meddled or had any
dealings with them again, (in the speaking |ine,
I mean,) I wished 1 might be hung and choaked.
But aweaaing off from woman, and then going
into a meeting house chock full of gel«, all shining
sad glisterupg in their Sunday clothes and clean
faces—is like swearing off fron bquor and going
grog shop, tft all tmekt. I held out and
kept firm to my oath, for three Whole Sunday's,
forenoons,.'iftamoons, and intermissions complete.
Qp the fourth there were strong symptoms of s
chan go of weather. A chap about my size was
seen on tbe way to the meeting house, with a new
patent hat op, his head hung by the ean on a shirt
Collar, his crqgat bad a pudding in it, and branched
out in front into a doubled bow knot. He carried
a straight back, and stiff neck, as a man odght to
when be hoaJus best clothes on; and every time he
epit, he sprung his body forward like s'jack knife,
an order to shoot clear ofps ruffles.
Sqpire Jones' pew is next but two to mine« and
when I stand up to pray««, and take my coat tail
under ray arm, and turn mf back to the miaieter, 1
'naturally looked right jUaigfat at Sally Jone«.
Now, Bally hasgoteAMot tobe grinned at in
a fog. lodeed, as regard« beamy, some folks think
«be can pull an even yoke with Patty Bean. For
my part I think there is uot much boot between
theta.—Any how, they are so nigh matched, that
they hated and despised each other like rank poison,
ever since they were school girls.
'Squire Jdbes bed'got tbe evening fire on, and set
limsulf down to reading tbe great bible, when bq
learsaUpathia door: *walk in—well John how
d'ye dof get out Pompey"—"pretty well, I thank
ye, Squire, and how do you do I" ' why so as to be
crawlin'—ye ugly beast will ye hold yer yap—ha
up a chair and ait down.'* * » • "How t
you do, Mrs. Jones!" Oh, middlin', bow's yer
mamma! Don't fiîrgel the mat there, Mr.
Thia put me in mind that I had been off sttmdîngs
several times in the long muddy lane,and my boots
wem in a aweet pickle.

and racket, lie opened both his eyes at first with
wonder and astonishment, at last ho Began to hal

takes it for granted that overy body is just exactly

Who is it! I say who in the world is it! Mrs.
Jones going close to his- ear, screamed out, "in
Johnny Beedle." Ho, 1 remember he was one «Um

your lipnrt, that was birgrsndfsthcr, that has been
dead and gone these twenty yean. "Ho,but where
dose he come!" "Down town." Ilo-ind what
doee he follow for a ltvin!" And he did not stop
« ing questions after this sort, till all the particu-,
i of the Beedle family were published and pro»
claimed in Mrs. Jane.' best schreech. He then
sunk back into his dokbagain. The dog «»retched

S&Ii 'aay now do you want to-marry, or only to
court!" r
Thia was what I call a choaker. Poor Sally made
But on* jump, and landed in tkc middle of the kit
chen ; and then ahe vkuileti into a dark corner, till
tbeeid bum after laughing h maelf mlou whoop-,
mg cough, was put to bed.
Theo came apples and cider, and the ica being
broken, plenty of chat with biumrny Jones, about
the minister and the sarmon. I agreed with her
to a nicety on all the points of doctrine, but I bad
forgot the text and all the beads of discourse but
six. Then thotaaasd and tormented mete tell who
I accounted the best singer in the gallery that day.
Bat mum—there was no getting that out of me.
"Praise to the face, is often dmgradb" says I, throw
ing a aly aquint at Sally. At last, Mrs. Jones light
ed t'otber candle, anil oiler charging Bally to look
well to the fir«, ahe led the way to bod, and Ibe
squire gathered up hia ahuoa add atockinga, and fol
lowed.
Bally and I were left sitting « good yard apart,
honest measure.' For fear of getting tongue-tied
again, I act right in with a »ready stream of talk.
1 told her all the particulars about the weather
that Was paat, and alao made some pretty 'cute
guesses al wbat il was like to be in future; at first
I gave n hitch up with my chair, at every full stop;
the« growing saucy, -1 repealed it at every com
ma and semicolon, at tut it was bitch, hitch, and I
planted myself by the aide ef her.
"I awow, Sally, you looked so plagued handsome
tb-dsy (hat 1 wanted eat you up. "fthaw git
ahmf you"—says she. toy hand Jiad crept alnng
somehow upon jts fingen, and began to scraps ac
quaintance wjtt hers; she sent ii home again with
a desperate jerk. Try it again y no better Inch;
"why Miss Jones, you're getting
tlv old rnaidish,! guess." "Hi
Mr. Beedle.'' It is a good sign
I knew wher# thp shoe pinch«
Patty Bean businoM; an I want to work lb persuade
her that I never had any notion after Patty and to
prevti it I fell to running hor down at a great me:
Bally could not help chiming in with me, and I
rather guess Mias Patty suffered a few.
I now not onlyfeot bold ef her hand without oppo
sition, but managed toalip an arm round her waist.
But there was no satisfying me; so I must go to
poking out my lipe after a buas; I guess I rued it ;
she fetched me s slap on the face that made me see
stare, and my earn rung like a brass kottle for a
quarter of an hour I was forced to laugh at the
joke, though out of the wrong aide of my mouth,
which gave my face Something (be look of a grid
iron. (
The battle now began the regular way. "©!
Ballf give me a Idea and be done with (| now, "I
ao there let me alone." " Pll lake it wheth
er or no." *^Jo if yon you dam." And a« it I went,
rough and tumble; an odd destruction of starch
now commenced : the bow of my cravat Was squat up
In fislf • shake; at the next but. smash went shirt
collar, sud the same time some of the lieud fasten
ings gave way, and down came Sally's hair in a
flood like a mill dam broke looee, carrying away
half a dozen combe—one dig of SqJIy'a elbow, and
my brooming ruffles melted down to a dishcloth.
But he had nr time to boast; soon her neck tack
ling began to shiver, it parted at the throat, who
rah, came a whole school of blue and white heeds,
ul scampering and running raésa every way about tbe
floor. By the takey, ifSally Jones isn't ical grit,
there is no pnakea. She fought flair, however, 1
t%n, and uoilher tried to bite or scratch; and
when she could fight ne longer, for want of breath,
■he yielded handsomely. Her arras fell down by
ber aide, her head back ovdr her chair, her eye« do
led, and there lay her little plump.mouth
aif. Lord I bid you averse* a hawk pounce up
on a young robin—a bumble bee upon.a clover top?
I «ira nothing. Co^aarn it, Mrs. Jones was about
half between asleep and awake. "There goes my
yqast bottle.,'* sard ahe to herself, "burst into twen
ty decee, and. mydwead ia all dough again."
The upahort of the matter Was, I fell in love with
Sslly Jones, over head and ears. Every fomduy
night rain or shine, finds me rapping atsouire Jones'
door, and twenty tunes bave I been within s hair's
breadth of popping the question. But now I have
made* final resolve, and if I live until the next Sun
day night, and if I doo'lchoak in the trial, Sally

Tho farmers, ohd mechanics of New England

"American System." In no State is tho manufac
