We copy the fol iowiug from that popular magazine: Hcrr Smash. ,- Herr Smash, the pianist, made his deloo before a Bunkum audience last night. That there was such a being in all existence in any quarter of the globe was un-beknown to us until about a year ago, when a puff from the Manchester Cour ier was sent out tor publication all through the United'n States'n, declaring his great triumph in the town-hall of said place.: lhis kind of sharp ened curiosity, and we tirst heard the question ask ed, 'who was Herr Smash ? Also with reference to his laurels. (And speaking of laurels, we have a few cedar posts to be disposed ot cheap.) I hen came a small pamphlet, left at the doors of Bunk urn, headed in German characters, Herr Smash, and that he was now on his way, which investigat ed inquiry, to the highest pitch, but no Herr Smash yet Soon after his plenipotentiary agent appeared for the purpose of hiring rooms, and bespeaking him a sufficient benefit from our fellow citizens cordial ly responded to: after which, with a good head of steam, the Caledonia steamer brought up the mon ster to the wharf at Boston, last week, soon after which, the bills were printed at this office, and he last night appeared at his dehoo, which was enthu siastic to a degree. Ihe instrument was an extremely massive one, of the kind called grand, which, when the curtain drawed up, we perceived was secured to the floor by traverse timber from the lumberyard ot .board man and Brothers, also by a side-long piece of iron, hammered down with tenpeny nails (patent heads) and screws. Herr omash soon entered with a bust of unanimous applause. His appearance was exentrik. A bushy head like a bushel, and a smear of mustashes onto his upper hp, otherwise frock coat and sundries. He a!so carried a cambric hand kerchief perfumed with musk. We smalt it- He took his position, planting himself firm, while two upholsters tacked his coat tails with little brass studs, also secured bis body with ropes. His au dience were by this time at the highest point of the key-veeve, and time they was. He took ot his glovs, hurled his eyes all round the theayter, looking grim, held his wrists about three feet above the key board, letting the ends of his fingers hang down, his hair stood right up, and we knew that eminent jeyardy was a-coming. So held them for three minutes, while all the whole audience was nigh out of breath, and while he was so, down he came with his ten finger nails.

"We were once coming over the railroad from Washington city to Baltimore, when we observed a peculiar sort of a man sitting hard by a tall, slim good-natured fellow, but one who somehow seem ed to bear the impress of a person who lived by his wits written upon his face. A friend who was with me answered my inquiry as to who be was, and at the same time asked me to keep between the object of my attention and himself, lest he should come over to our seat, as my companion said he knew him, but did not wish to recognize him there. 'That is Beau H , said he, 'a man that is universally known in Washington as one of the most accomplished fellows - in the city always ready to borrow of, or drink with you. He never has anv money, however, and I'm curious to know how he will get over the road without paying, for ne it ao it in some way.' 'Probably he has got a ticket borrowed the money to buy it with, or something of that sort, said I. - , 'Not he. Beau always travels free, and boards in the same way. He never pays money when wit or trick will pass current in its place,' said my inend conudently. .. . .. : . What a shocking bad hat he has got on,' said I, observing the dilapidated condition of his beaver. 'It's some trick of his doubtless, for the rest of his dress, you .observe, is quite genteeL' My friend went on to tell -me bow Beau had done his tailor out of a receipt in full for his last bill, and his landlady at his last boarding place. and also various other little specimens of his inge nuity and wit 'He owes me ten dollars, said my friend, 'but in attempting to collect of him one day, 1 11 be hanged if he didn't get ten more out of me so I think shall let the matter Test there for fear of doubling the sum once more. --' At this moment the conductor entered the op posite end of the cars to gather the tickets from the passengers, and give them checks in return.' Many of them, as is often the practice with travel ers who are frequently called upon on populous routes to show their tickets, had placed theirs in the bands of their hats, so that the conductor could see that they were all right, and not trouble them to take them from their pockets at each stopping place. As the conductor drew nearer, Beau thrust his head out of the car window, and semed absorb ed in contemplating the scenery on that side of the road. The conduetor spoke to him for his ticket there was no answer. Ticket sir,' said the conductor, tapping him light ly on the shoulder. liea.il sprang back into the car, knocking his bat into the road, and leaving it in a moment, nearly a mile behind. He looked first at the conductor, then out of the window after his hat, and in a seem ing fit of rage exclaimed. . , What the d 1 do you strike a " man in that way for ? Is that your business ? Is that what to end of the instrument, turning head over heels between a quaver and a semi-quaver, and all right again and on, before anybody would know that there was any time lost He first played Yankee Doodle, out of compliment, smothering it up with the blanket of ornament, and tucking it in, that when the poor Yaukee did peep out with its face we hadly knowed it .

After this, however, unloosing his mus tciU bark irom the wharf of patriotism, he began to play the Battle of Prague, the Battle of the Nile, Battle of the Pyramids, Battle of Wagram, Battle ot Austerhtz, and Battle of Bunker Hill, all con created them.

Wise Counsel. The Home Journal gives the following extract from an address of the venerable Dr. Nott, Presi dent of Union College, N. Y. 'I have been young, and am now old ; and in re view of the past, and the prospect of the future, I declare unto you beloved pupils, were it permitted me to live my life over again, I would by the help of God, from the very outset, I would favor vir tue; and lend my influence to advance whatever would exalt and adorn human nature, alleviate human misery, and contribute to render the world lived in, like the Heaven to which I aspire, the abode of innocence and felicity. Yes. thou-crh I were to exist no longer than the ephemera that port away their hour m the sunbeams ot the morning; even during that brief period I would rather soar with the eagle, and leave the record of my flight and my fall among the stars, than reep the earth and lick the dust with the reptile. and, having done so, bed my body with my me mory in the gutter." 1 he life of Dr. Wott has been a dailr illustration of the value of the sentiments he so handsomely expresses. He is now a patriarch of seventy six years and has presided over Union College . for for forty-hve years, preserving in his old age that fire of genious and kindliness of heart which have made him the idol of all who have even enjoyed his instruction. A Scotch minister, very homely in his address. chose for his text a passage in the Psalms: 'I said n my haste all men nre liars.

We went to see this chefdoover in plaster, it hav ing been brought to Bunkum last week. We had understood it was an exposure, and we wished to be satisfied on our own eccount Figure then, reader, or let us figure for you, an adult she-statoo without any frock. We were at first dismayed and pained. We said to our warm-hearted friend, Mr. Thomas, 'Give us our hat. We wish to put our head in our hat' We subsequently came to a dif ferent state of feeling, having been a little preju diced at first, we confess, by learning the plaster it was made of was brought from Paris. Now, then, if you want to know what we think of it, reader, its the greatest piece of whittln in the world, and we don't see how he done it. No jack-knife could a cut a shaving or shingle slicker we doo think. It's so smooth and reond that it shines like a little lump of loaf sugar, the light seems to but up ag'in i it, and then back right eout. There was silence in the room like the Egyptln desart when the harp of Memon has got the floor. A deep, solemn whisper of 'Very fine i" was all which pervaded the ear, save every now and then could be heard the undertones of the exhibitor, who was turning the statoo abeout on a pivot, that the whole effect of the whittlin' might be perceived. 'Slower John; to the right to the left; that'll do, there now, hold on, and so forth,' which we wished he'd keep to himself, as he broke in on our reflections. One don't like to have the sacred ess of his reflections decomposed when the very light of heaven seem to steal in. the company hire you for?' 'I beg your pardon, sir, I only want your ticket,' replied the conductor, meekly.. 'Ticket ! O, yes, it's all very well for you to want my ticket, but I want my hat!' replied Beau brist ling up. 'Very sorry, sir, really. I barely desired to call your attention, and I took the only means in my power,' said the conductor. - . . 'You had better use a cane to attract a person's attention, and hit him over the head with it, if he happens to be looking the other way !' replied the indignant Beau. - ; 'Well, sir, I am ready to appologise to you again, if you wish. I have done so already once,' said the now disconcerted official. 'Yes, no doubt, but that don't restore my prop erty ; that's gone. 'Well, sir, I cannot talk any longer, I'll take your ticket if you please, said the conductor. 'ticket! havn t you just knocked it out the win dow, hat and all! Do you want to add insult to injury ?' ' - 'O, your ticket was in your hat-band ?' suggest ed the conductor. 'Suppose you stop the train and go back and see,' said the hatless Beau, with indignant scorn depicted on his face. 'Well sir, you shall pass over the road free, then,' replied the conductor, attempting to go on with his duty. 'The price of a ticket,' said Beau, is one dollar; my beaver cost me a V. Your good sense will at once show you there is a balance of $4 in my fa vor at any rate.' The conductor hesitated. Beau looked like a gentleman to one uot perfectly posted in the human face; he was well-dressed, and in his indignation appeared most honest. 'I'll see you after I have colleted the tickets,' re plied the conductor, passing on through the car. Beau sat in silent indignation, frowning at every body until the conductor returned, and came and sat down by his side. Beau then in an earnest under tone, that we could only overhear occasion ally, talked to the conductor 'like a father,' and we saw the crest-fallen man of tickets pay the hatless passenger four dollars. The trick was at once seen through by both my friend and myself, and the next day, over a bottle of wine at the Monument House, Beau told us he was hard up, hadn't a dollar, picked up an old hat at Gadsby s Hotel m Washington, clapped his cap in his pocket and resolved that the hat should car ry him to Baltimore and it did, with four dollars t tit o the bargain! i'lagot our Union. A Way-side Story about Honesty. One evening a poor man and his son, a little boy, sai uy me way-siue ueur uits gate o an Old town in Germanj'. The father took out a loaf of bread, which he had bought in the town, and broke it and gave half to his boy. 'Not so, father,' said the boy ; 'I shall not eat until after you. - You have been working hard all day, for small wages to support me ; and you must be hungry ; I shall wait till you are done.' 'You speak kindly, my son,' replied the pleased father; "your . love to me does me more good than my food; and those eyes of yours' re mind me of your dear mother who has left us, who told you to love me as you used to do; und in deed, my boy, you have been a greatlstrength and comfort to me ; but now that I have eaten the first morsel to please you, it is your turn now to eat', 'Thank you, father; but break this piece in two, and take you a little more, for you see the loaf is not large, and you require much more than 1-do.' 'I shall divide the loaf for you my boy ; but eat it, I shall not; I have abundance; and let us thank God for his great goodness in giving us food, and in giving us what is better still, cheerful and con tented hearts. He who gave us the living bread from heaven, to nourish our immortal souls, how shall he not give us all other food which is not nec essary o. support our mortal bodies?' The father and son thanked God, and then be gan to cut tile loaf in pieces, to begin their frugal meal. But as they cut one portion of the loaf, there fell out several large pieces of gold of great value. The little boy gave a shout of joy, and was spring ing forward to grasp the unexpected treasure, when he was pulled back by his father. 'My son, my son!' he cried, 'do not touch that money; it is not ours ? 'I know not as yet to whow it belongs ; but probably, itwas put there by the baker, through nr . ' - t i . some mistake, vve must inquire, ruin. out. father,' interrupted the boy, 'you are poor and nee dy, and you have bought" the loaf, and the baker may tell a Jie, and' ' . . '1 will not listen to you, my boy. I bought the loaf, but did not buy the gold in it ', If the baker sold it to me in ignorance, I shall not be so dishon est as to take advantage of him; remember Him who told us to do to others as we would have oth- do to us. The baker may possibly cheat us. I am poor, indeed, but that is no sin. If we share the poverty of Jesus, God's own Son, oh ! let us share, also, his goodness and his trust in God. ;We may never be rich, but we may always be honest We may die of starvation, but God's will be done, should we die in doing it! res, my boy, trust in God, and walk in his ways and you shall never be put to shame. Now, run to- the baker and bring him here ; and I shall watch the gold until he comes.' So the boy ran for the baker. 'Brother-workman said the old man, 'you have made some mistake, and almost lost your money ;' and he showed the baker the gold, and told him how it had been found. 'Is it thine ?' asked the father, 'if it is take it away. My father, baker, is very poor, and '." 'Silence, my child; and put me not to shame, by thy com plaints. i am glad we have saved this man from losing his money.' The baker had been gazing al ternately upon the honest father and his eager boy, and the gold which lay glittering on the green turf. Thou art, indeed, an honest fellow,' said the baker; 'and my neighbor David, the flax-dresser, spoke the truth when he said, thou wert the honestest man in our town.' -" .- ' 'Now I shall tell thee about the gold: A stran ger came to my shop three days ago, and gave me that loaf, and told me to sell it cheaply or give it away, to the honestest poor man 1 knew in the city. i torn uavia to sena tnee to me, as a ciistomer.'inis morning; as thou knowest for the last pence in thy purse; and the loat with all its treasure and, sertes, it is not small ! it is thine, and God grant thee a blessing with it !' The poor father bent his head to the ground, while the tears fell from his eyes. His boy ran and put his hand about his neck, and said, 'I shall always, like you, my father, trust (iod, and do what is right; for 1 am sure it wil nev er put us to shame.' Edinburgh Chn. Mag: Remains of WhitefieM.' i'i-m f? I "Did not Think." The Portsmouth Journal says that two boys went into a store in that town, and looked at some knives; when they left, a knife was missing. Ihe thoughtless boy had some salu tary reflection before the next morning as is shown by the fact that the ktiite was thrown into the store by a boy who passed so rapidly that he could not be recognised.- "With the knife was a billet which ran thus: 'Mr. Abbey, I did not think a moment last night, when I took this knife from your store. Please forgive me. 'Your father would not have punished' you, my child, if you had not used profane language and swore.' 'Well father swears.' 'I know he has been in the habit of it, but he leaves off now.' 'It's a pity he hadn't done it before ha taught Bill and me to swear, and then we should have been saved many darn'd lickens. Mistakes of the Rich. The Egyptian King who, swollen with granduer, orderer a colossal staircase built to his new palace, discovered to his chagrin when it was completed. that it required a ladder to get from one step to the other. He had forgotten that a King s legs, after all were as short as a beggar's. Aggrandize as we may, the limits of our senses check us mis erably at every moment . And you call yourself proprietor ! Houses and pictures outlive you, and after taking your will of them for a short time, you are carried out of your own coor, leet foi-most never again to enter it "Proprietors" you were, perhaps, of farms and castles, and mountains; but now you own nothing but a hole in the ground six feet by two! The artist who visits your gallery while you live and own it, enjoys it more than you. You are rich enongh to dine twenty-four times a dav, but you must eat sparingly even once. Yotir cellar is full of exquisite wine, but you can only drink one bottle yfturself : and to help you use your store, you are obliged to call around your friends rela tives, parasites a little world who, instead ot being grateful, are likely to make you a return in envy.' You have thirty horses in your stable ; you can mount but one ride after but two or four. To be rich one should have . stomachs in pro portion to the number of dinners he could afford, senses excluded according to stock in bank,' sex stuple vigor and sensibility to concentrate and re turn all the love he could propitiate with gifts. j At the close ot bis lite, the richest man has hardly spent more upon his own employment than the poor man. He has eaten twice a day, slept in a bed alone or with one wife ; and the poor man can do as much, and he, the proprietor, scarcely more.
