may friend." said he you had better
take care lest your pig bring you into
Sa scrape. I just heard in the last
village I passed through, that a pig
lead been stolen, and the people were
making a great noise about it. I
fear-1 fear you have got the stolen
pig there; and if so it will go hard
with you down in the village yon
tier, a ducking in the loch is the least
you can expect," The simple Hans
was dreadfully alarmed at this piece
of intelligence. "For the love of
lheaven, do htelpmeontof this scrape !"
exclaimed. "You know the country
hereabouts better than I do,-take
ty pig nnd give me your goose."
I ought to have something into the
bargain to make all fair," said the
fellow : "but I will not be too hard
upon you, seeing you are in a sort of
herai et." With these words he took
tlhe pig and gave Hans the goose,
with which Ihe marched off right
glad of the excllhange. "I have not
got tlhe worst of the bargain, me
thinks," said Mans to himiiself, as lihe
hastenied otnward with Ihis white
goose tal 1; l his arm. "First, there
will it' suihl a roast: then, it is so

c What more could I wish than to find

the grinder his goose. "Now," said
the other, giving him an old worn
out stone which lay at his side,
"here is a most capital.stoue for you,
only manage it well and you may
make an old nail eat with it. TPake
it, and begin your gold-winning.
r HaIns took the stone and'marched
Soff with it in great triumph. "Sure
tlly I mItt have been born in a lucky
hour," said lhe to himself, "every
thing goes so well with me !" Mean
while Hans began to feel himself
very hungry; but he could get noth
itig to eat for he 'had given away his
last penny for joy when he got the
cow. At last he got so tired that he
could not walk a step farther; so he
fsat down at the side of a little pool
with hTs great burden of a stone, and
was stooping to take a drink, when
the stone plumped into the well and
,sank to the bottom. Hans was over
joyed at thus getting rid of his only
plague, the great heavy stone, and
leaped briskly up to his feet, exclaim
in : "HIIow lucky am I! Sure
there never was such a lucky mor
Ital under the sun!" And with a
lilght and merry heart he walked on
till he came to his mother's house.

An Enl'k. l icr.-The London
Post, ( L'almnerstoian.) in its issue of
Aiuigst 13th, classes an article on
the war in the fAllowýing lanurage:
Actual warfare iii the United States
lhas now been waged for several

-xleptioi of General 3cClellan's
tacc.-s in Western Virginia, has been

.Jackson \Whig says the following is
ai extract tuinmm a letter to a citizen
of that place from a gentleman in
Shuicano:
I shouild like to see vou very'

youj hav-e mad up your mind to tnke

know I should do the same if I was
there. One thing is sure, and that is
that I shall never light agninst tl$ 1

t
should be my luck to be ene of them,
you may look for me down there; x

Testimony ofa Unionist.-The Mem
phis Appealof the 12th has the fol
lowing:
Ion. Henry M. Waterson recently
returdied from Washingt6n, made a
speechon Monday last atMc-Minnville.
'lThe \EW - iA Says: "LHe reminded
his hears:i., his former devotion to
the Union, and informed them that
what he had seen at Washington had
thoroughly weaned him ifrom his
devotion to the "stars and stripes."'
lie said if we had no other cause, the
imbecility and wholesale rascality of
the Government at Washington was
sufficient to justify a disruption of the
old Union. He rtsepresenllts a complete
reign of teror at the old capital, and
expresses the conviction that a more
despotic and tyrannical Government
can not he found than the one which
acknowledges Abraham Linclon as
its ruler."
We hear it rumored, says the
Louisville Courier, that Major An
derson had telegraphed, or written
to Lincoln, at Washington, that if the
(Government endorsed the infamous
proclamation of FIr"mont in St. Louis,
that he should throw up his commis
sion and resign at once.
Some of the Efects.-If the north
arn press and letter-writers. are to be
ber eve'i, the effocts of Mr. Lincbln's
war arn beginning to " hurt" all hbran
ches of business. A letter from New
York says:
'l'the war is pressing hard on some
ef our tirst class educational institu
tions. 'Illhe general theological sem
inery of the Protestant Episcopal
church, in Twentieth street, I un
dePtand, is reduced to great straits,
financially speaking, so mucneh so that

which ha:s been the ample source otf
