to be so. If our farmer would study
ami reflect more, they might do Ichh hard

good niunugemuiit, lo give any man a
good living. He wljo works so hard that
lit-Ctinnot leod or reflect alter Iho lubois
of the day ule over, b-scause of fatigue,
does not plan wisely. Lei no nian shun
wink when work should be (lone; Imt to
delve, delve forever is not the end of
Man's life. The farmer s evenings should
be dovolcd to menial acquisition and ra
tional enjoyment. To sup and tumble
into bed is a hog's Cushion, and highly in-
joii iu to health. But lot the farmer have
uboiit h i tn the choicest wot ha ot his own

A S.N Ah E S TORY
( Va.)Fiee Piets relates the following sin
A negro in Dinwiddie county, came to
hi deaih, a short lime since, in the fol
lowing singular manner; He was sent in
to a field ou uu errand and not returning
as soon us-expected, search was mude,aiid
he was found lying on the ground nearly
dead, hi eyes strained from Limit sockets,
and ex-hibiiing the appearance of stran
gulation. On approaching nearer, it was
discovered that a large snake hud crawl
ed down bis throat. They attempted lo
draw out ihe snake by the tail, which ox
tended a few inches nut of the negro's
mouth, but it drew it iu two, and the ne
gro died al the instant. It is supposed
that he lay down ou tliu ground and fell
asluep, oud the snake finding au entrance
in the open mouth of the negro, crawled
down his throui, thereby causing its own
and the negro's death.
ArriiCTr.ii Dkatn tss. A stranger dis
mounted ut ihe door of the Hotel, and
gave his horse lo the officious waiter. The
lur keeper opened lliu register to take
"Vuu aru right," suid he, "u single, rourn
will be more agrueoble," and he walked
into the supper uoom to which ihe crowd
of bonnier were passing The bar keeper
ran utter bun, screaming in Ins em
"Whut nnme did you say"
"Thank you," said lie, "1 can find the
way, don't put yourself to any trouble."
On his reiut n to the bar room a waiter
look up hi saddle bags, and told the deuf
stiangei he would show him bis chamber.
"My friend, who will spend tho eve
ning with me, prefeis plain sherry," ssid
he. "You muy send up a bottle und a
"1 did not," said the bur keeper, "ex
actly unileisliinil your name."
"1 think a little ice would iinpr vo the
wine," was the answer. "Aud now I
think of i', you may put the butt lu ma
wine cooler." Ilia friend now joined him,
and they walked to bis room together.
Tho deaf lodger patronized the house to
the extent of utiotlicr botllu befoiu he
slept. The waiter who brought il up,
ventured once uioru to inquire hia nuinn.
''Nothing more," aiiidjhe "except u slice
of hum, a piekl and ts little bread und
cheese." The next morning after break-
lust when the sti linger horse was at the
door, lie asked for bis bill. Ho was told
it was six dollars and thioa quarters.
"iou aro very kind I bud expected
lo pay you; but if this is your custom, to
chargn nothing Tor Ihe fiist visit, you shall
not lose by il nil my fi in nils in Sponge

"I would lliunk yon lo pay your bill be
fore you go!" screumed ihe bar-keeper.
"I am obliged to you,1' said the deaf
geiiilemiin. "J can put them on," and he
took up bis saddle-bags and departed.

harassment which afflicted thu bur keep

and repeating Ins assurances, lhat he
would rertain.ly remember the nccnmino

Eight working days only (ssys th Na

remain ol the present session of Cor.
gress, within which lime a large amount
nfworkmsybe done, if the members of
the two Houses will but hold on to the)
end., Much of the most important
business of the Session is still on hand,
business involving, tome of it, the highest
interests of the constituency, and of many
of the States which members represent.
So tlntt no tnembei continues our vener
able; contemporary should abandon his
statiirn in either House before the
last moment of the session, under any
prorhpiiilg much short of that itisiincf
which makes self peruei vation the first
law bf nature. . , ,''.;'.
The Intelligencer speaks hot only b
the caul, but "lor cause.'' Quite a num
ber of members have left their posts, ben.
ding the approaching elections in several
of the States, in which many of them are
personally interested. Three of the run-
aaates, whom we wot of, are from Ohio
Messrs. Olds, Sweetzer and Giddings.
The second named says he "paired off"
with Mr. Toombs but Toombs stayed i
day longer, and Voted differently from
what Sweetzer'e constituents would ex
pect of their representative on one of the
slavery bill-! The simple truth is, all
those indviduals came home to electioneer
for themselves going in for Number One;
though the country should go to perdition!
The Intelligencer well remarks that
some of the most important legislation;
lor the country and the several States,
lemnins lo be transacted. The River and
Harbor Bill, iu which Ohio is interested,
on both sides, and all over the State,
bus nut become a law, nor will it be like
ly to if its friends, teal or pre le tided,
leave three at a time; to let all go, in
order thai lliey may, if possible, save iheir
owiinecksfrom the political halter. Shame
on such miserably selfish demagogues!
We honor those members from Ohio
and Pennsylvania, who, like John L. Tay
lor, win remain al their poms, till the laBt
moment of the session, ready to speak and
vote for the interest n their constituents'
und the country. They are faithful pub
lic servants, who deserve well of those

merely for 88 per day;- but for the coun

almost heart broken, immediately on
