Anecdote of Jefferson. IVIItnr's Printer. In Harper's MukiuIiic for July. My recollection ol Mr. Jefferson, says an old gentleman of Virginia, is vivid, ii I know him well, and often visited at Mouticello, lie was the handsomest inn 11 I ever saw, straight as an arrow, very dignified and courteous in his man ners to all. A superb rider, ho exorcised himself 011 horseback till the last of his life. The University of Virginia was his pet scheme, and ho wa very proud of it as pcing ni own achievement, ax it first cession I entered a a student, and Mr. Jefferson was always pleased to have u students at lit table. Upon these oc' caslons wo woro generally seated around hi table, when Air. Jellerson would cn tor and walk straight to an adjoining side table specially prepared for him, and upon which woro placed two lighted candles and a small vial hy his pinto. He would then say: "My daughter. I ncr- celvo there aro sovornl young gentlemen at the tabio. out 1 do not see well enough to distinguish who they nro, o you must tell mo tholr names." 'Whereupon hi daughter would lend him up to each young gcntloman, who would In turn riso, when Air. Jellerson would slinke hands nnd pas a pleasant word with him. At tho close of tho repast, as hi own hand was too trembling, his (laugh tor wound pour trom tiio little vial Into a tumblor ti few drops of medicines to produce slumber iu easo ho should bo wakeful, and then ho would tako up tho tumbler and a candle, make a statolv bow to the assemblage, nnd retire to hi bed-room.

A rolntlvitof Mr. Jefferson', though verv desirous of visiting him, wasyotdt- inclined to thrust his rusticity ami nut oratcneso of his great kinsman. Upon 0110 occasion, however, ho was prevailed upon to attend a social gathering at Montjcello. when, upon being ushed into tho salon, ho was duly presented by Mr. Jefferson to the company.

"Hoys, cays an exchange, "do not sneer nt the liurd-worKing mechanic, for beneath that dust-soiled jacket may iurk the spirit of true nobility." 1 no exchange is eminently correct. It is, indeed, wrong to pass through this world sneering at mechanics. A good, average, able-bodied mechanic is a bad man to sneer nt. At almost any unex pected moment be is iiuito linblo to sud denly transfer como of tho dust on his jacket to the hroadcolth coat of the sheerer, ami jolt mm severely it 110 sneer too hard at the mechanic. If a boy or young man I contemplating sneering at a mechanic, it would bo riage-catcbiiig purposes; after wliieh.tho comments being finished, the dramatic trio inake exit, leaving tho stage clear for a moment. At this period came tho murderer of Abraham Lincoln.

It would look 11 grentdenl hot ter, and tho boy would look better when ho went homo to the bosom ot his lain- . . xso, boy, 11 is neither pouto, genteel nor wiso'to sneer at a mechanic. Nei ther is it healthy, Tho habitual sneorer nt mechanics is sometime cut off in the flower of his youth. Life Is too short to indulge in such perilous rccrention. Tho sneorer is too often found In n pensive' mood, abstractedly engaged 111 nppiying niece of raw beelstoak to hi eyes, try ing to reducu n swollen nose with gener ous decoctions of arnica, feeling his lame back, or picking tho gold filling out of tho teetli which ho happened to casually cough ui) coon after indulging iu Ills playful little sneer nt tho hard-working mechanic.
