A Hard Case. —A Yankee schoolmaster; ft teacher of Chirography—not long since lo cated himself in Renssær County N. Y. and commenced a school under the most favorable auspices. He gathered round him a score of pupils-—most of whom were of the fairer order of creation. One, in particular was, we under stand, a very angel in features—one of y beautiful country maidens« who spring up in their seclusion, fair as the wild flowers of their native vallies. As mighe have been expected she played iniquity with the heart of the school master. Day after day he sat by her side, guulecl her taper fingers, and felt her dark tresses light ly sweeping his cheek, as she leaned with him towards the manuscript. It was too much— human philosophy could not stand it. In a luckless moment, he pressed his lips to her cheek, imprinted upon it one of those kisses. In which "The lip will linger like some h Sipping a favourite flower." And what think you, gentle reader, was the re sult of all this? why—the unfortunate chiro grapher was prosecuted for his lecture on kis sing, and turned adrift with a fine of $1,000 hanging over Dam an's pilgrim, dervalue the charms of the young lady; but re ally, if she sets such an exorbitant price upon her cheek, it will be a long day, we opine be töre she baa another opportunity to exact it. his shoulders like the pack of Far be it from us to un "Pomp and C'æsar berry much alike," said a venerable man that we knew,—«berry much a like indeed—specilly Pomp!'

Original Anecdote. — A few years ago, a couple of Dutchmen upon the high hills of Limestown, though very friendly, hud a dread ful falling out about one killing the other's dog for which he sued for damages. They were called into court, and the défendent in the case was asked by the Judge, if he killed the dog: «* Be sure 1 kilt him said the Dutchman put let him prove it." This being quite satisfactory, the plaintiff in the case was called on to answer a few questions; he was asked by the Judge, to what amount he estimated the damages; he did not understand this question so well, so to a little plainer, the Judge asked him what he thought the dog to be worth. "Be sure said he the dog was wot noting, but since he vas so mean as to kill him he shall pay de full wallue of him. BISHOP ENGLAND. Previous to the late city election, the r able and eloquent Catholic Bishop (England) of Charleston, issured, through the medium of the newspapers, an address to the Roman Catholic citizens of Charles ton, with a view to guard them against the preva lent evils of a time of so much excitement. It written with great ability. He exhorts Ins bred.re » to exercise their civil privileges conscientiously, to examine the intricate questions Carolina, for themselves, and to act according to their best judgment. He warns them against im proper influences, against intemperance, bruwls and riots. It is a powerful appeal to the moral and re ligious tenting of his brethren, and might he read with grëut benefit by others besides those whom the Bishop addresses. We quote the following passage. Spirit of the Age. " Of all the spectacles which are humiliating to the jnst pride of an honest republican, I know of no one so galling, as to behold his fellow citizens debased by a paltry bribe to procure the ruin of that distributive justice which alone is the great conser vative principle of our free institutions: 1 know no bring so degraded in the vilest slavery, as the miser able wretch, who wears the semblance of a freeman, sells the invaluable inheritance of the community entrusted to his guardianship, for such a paltry bribe .is forms the wages of such prostituti« agitating South city. .is forms the wages of such prostituti« Let no one speak to me of the existence of one principle of religion in such a traitor! He has no love of God. it .is an ennobling quality which de curates the soul, assiinuiates the inhabitants of earth to the bright and ardent se-aph that glows in aflec tion before the eternal throne of the Creator: this love of God is the spirit of religion: it lifts man a liovc the earth, brings him nearer to heaven, and in spires him with the holy ambition of being perfect as his heavenly father is perfect, to me of the existence of religion in that fallen and pitiable being, who for such a despicable compensa tion, betrays his conscience, if he have any, to morse, his country to the ambition of the criminal who purchased him, and his soul to the power of the minister of divine vengeance. city. of in a No—Speak not T , _ .Love s Y oung Dream !—At the Union pol ice office, London, an old man, apparently six tv years old, complained that his wife had elo ped from him.

Walking is a delightful and healthful exercise: n.»t your street sauntering all day, which is fa thru mg and pernicious, lint a smart walk in the morning be fore breakfast; it invigorates and braces the system for the day. The morning air! 'tis most exhiiiratmg and vivifying. There are sensations created bv ex ereise in the open air, between dawn particularly in the spring si ason, which ted in and sunrise, be crea other way. If wo observe aright, the cus tom of young ladies walking in the morning is gain ing ground.

Her. streets are lumbered up with goods; the people who have not left her in despair are jostling each other about the streets* and hurrying to and fro, demented; her manufactures make few or no goods except to order: real estate has not risen more than thirty-three per cent, within the last eight months: and, in short, consump tion stalks through the streets in such a palpa ble shape, that even the prophetic croakers who once made the city musical though melancho ly, with their lamentations, have laid asid their harps, and wait with gloomy satisfaction to have their predictions verified- We arecon vinced that Boston will soon lose a good por t ; on 0 f her business—for want of people to transact it.— Courier.
