At this, the prisoner demurred, whereu|sm his honor rejoined—“My friend, I do not wish to lino you; but, by G—d, the majesty of the law must be maintained.” The Iiev. Sydney Smith once said, in writing of kissing: “We arc in favor ol u certain amount of shyness "hen a kiss is proposed, but it should not be continued too long; and when the fair one gives it, let it Ire administered with warmth and energy.— Let there be some soul in it. If she close lorr eyes and sigh deeply immediately after it, the .effect is greater, She should be care ful not to sjobber u kiss, but give it as a bumming bird runs bis bill into a honey suckle—deep but dgllent e. There is much virtue in a kiss, when well delivered. We have had the memory of one we received in our youth which lasted us lorty years, and we believe it will be one of the lust things we will think of when we die.” A Il.irtford paper gives the following 'signs of the times’ to be found in that city: 'Washing imd going out to days works done tort;’ Ttfoaklbst, diuner and supper, ol all Ktrtrtf ted ‘§fcw& died, and set u$ daws., Kksi on'sk to the Proclamation ok Gov.

As the time appointed for the mus ter drew near, and for sonic two hours sub sequently, the popular pulse was quickened by the appearance of a horseman gaily cipi pped, or a footman grotesquely envel oped and nrmed, mnreliing with linn step and determined air in the direction of the place of rendezvous. The Guards were or dered to assemble at 12 o’clock m., but as isual with military bodies, particularly on reave occasions when every thing must be lone with extreme circumspection, the corps iid not move until about half-past 2 o’clock. Meantime horsemen were prancing around he square, up and down the street, mid to md Iro, always freighted with sonic impor tant coimiiimicntion connected with the rraiid demonstration.

The following is an extract from a letter from Kupatoria te> the Boston Jcurml: “Walking along the beach the other day, I met a Frenchman who had secured a billet of wood, with w hich he will probably keep tip Ids cuisine fora week. He gave me good morning in bis broad Marseilles patois, to which I replied, adding, “Well, my friend, this is not tlie Canebierc.” The mention of the street, the pride of Ids native town, over powered him, and dropping his burden, he clasped Ids hands and stood mute, while tears gushed from the fountain of his heart. I turned the point and looking back, saw him still in the same attitude, facing the cold Northeast blast, which might freeze the drops upon his cheeks, blit can never chill his sacred love of home. Home! But how feeble the word to convey the idea! “Chez nous” of the French carries thought in the sound.— “Amongst ourselves,” where affections wind like tendrils through the cords of every heart, and make all to beat, as it were in the bosom of each ! I am no longer here, and if outward signs were wanting to transfer the mind beyond oceans and a continent, the snow-clad mountains of Tchernayn might supply tlie picture with the “Blue Hills” of Massachusetts, now whitened, too, with their wintry mantle, and lovelier to fond re inembranee in that garb tlianalltlie Eastern lands, when nature’s lavish baud has decked them in summer’s gayest attire. ‘Chez nous!’ amongst ourselves.’ ” (.’ai/se ok Hard Times. — 11 semis too lmd that California should forever pay tribute to all the rest of the world, mid receive noth ing in return. Eneli mail steamer leaving’ this port conveys lienee hundreds of thou sands of dollars, in comparatively small sums, to support dependent persons abroad. This would all be very well, if such persons, or a tenth part of them, were l.kely ever to become citizens of our State. Hut not so ; they live off us, without the most remote idea of ever living vim us ; and as soon as their protectors get a little ahead extra, t/.ey too ship off, and are seen no more in the land that succored them. AVhilc such continues to be the case, how con we expect California to prosper? Why should we complain of hard times, while we are sending all our money out of the country to encourage other sections, and as soon as cun conveniently be done, following our selves ? Hut it may be answered, society in Cali fornia is depraved, and we cannot consent to make it the residence of those we love ! We admit we are bad enough, but why not make an effort, to reform it ?

Sun. Tonai SroRv.— The Hampshire Chronicle, printed at Springfield, Muss., in 17*0, re lates the following account of a hostile meet ing between the rebel Shays, of I’elhuni, and Gen. Lyman: Gen. Lyman at one blow cut off Shay’s right arm, and Shay seizing it by the wrist with his left hand, killed nu aid-de-camp with the bleeding stump upon the spot. At this moment a light horseman coining up struck off Shay’s head but the rebel not at all dismayed by the accident, took Iur head lietween his teeth, and swimming a neighbor ing river made his eseu|»e. “The American Tiuokpian.”—In the Poston Saturday livening Gazet'e, nutler the caption of “A Comedian's Common Place Book,” we find a couple of “stunning’’ anecdotes concerning Kuchunan, “the great American Tragedian.” Here they are : “Jim Valentine is a character, in New Orleans—a defer wit ted man whom every body likes. Jim is fond of attending the theaters, always paying, and is considered quite a critic. Jim l.ked Kuchunan, the “American Tragedian”—that is, lie liked him as a man, but he did not hold his his trionic abilities in very high estimation—■ One night Kuchanan aid logo at the St.’ Charles theater, and after the performance, strolled into the Phoenix Saloon, and there, among others, encountered Jim. “Well, Jim, how diil 1 play fugo ?” “lletn, well—I've seen—worse —hem and not much—worse either.” “Thank you for nothing, Jim ; by the bye — I was lucky last mglit—made two hundred dollars at playing poker.” All right ; you may play pr’tr, but I’ll be roasted if you can ploy logo.” The tragedian immediately shot himself — in the nec!\ 11. was about to start for California, and requested of Jim a letter of introduction tosornc prominent personage in San Francisco. Jim, complying with his J ! desire, furnished a letter directed to S. Hid- j die, another of the “Jims,” which he sealed and handed to K. in an unsealed envelope. Upon his arrival in San Francisco, Kiddle was sought out, and the letter delivered ; the < lher Jim received it in his auction room, 1 which was at the time crowded with custom- * era ; a smile played around his mouth as he grasped P>. bv the hand, and welcomed him to California. “Gentlemen,”continued tlie auctioneer, “I wish to make you acquainted with a gentle man who has come to reside with us fora season ; with his permission, I will read his letter of introduction.” A ml he then rend : “Hear J in—this will introduce you to the celebrated American tragedian, Mr. Mc- Kean Kuehanau ; treat him well—he plays , Milliard—Macbeth—Hamlet—Sir GJes— Charles I)e Moor—Shyloek—Othello— I ago—and—and— pi l er !"

He then inquired where they kept their provisions. They referred him to the loft. Whilst he was unhooking their sau sages and pieces of bacon, a sportsman of the neighborhood happened to look in, when lie found the parents kneeling at their pray ers. The jieusunt informed him that a ter rible personage was in the house.

No; there is no Ifg- / charge against them. The object is to set them free —to vomit them forth again npon our community, that they may lie in readiness to control the next election. Will l T . S.

Not so with Davy Crockett. He knew no Mich word ns fail, and harbored no doubt or misgiving ns to the g'orious result. We remember his words of hope and encourage ment, that animated the most despondent hearts ; the visions of glory in which hs ; indulged ; the picture of a happy, prosper ous and glorious future which he drew of the future Republic, lie seemed to revel by anticipation in the glorious strife that | awaited him, and to snnlT the buttle from j alar off.

No premonitory foreboding warned him of hi* impending fate, but lie laughed to scorn alj ideas of harm or danger to himself.
