We arc told of Fielding' "Tom Jones'" tliat, when tbc book win tirst completed, the author, being, at the time hard pressed for mouey, took it to a second rate publisher, with a view of selling it for what it would bring at the moment. He left it, with the bookseller, and culled upon him next day for his decision. The publisher hesitated nud requested another day lor consideration ; and at parting, Fielding oiiered him the manuscript for twenty-live pounds. On his way home Fielding met Thompson, the poet, whom he told of the negotiation for the sale of tho manuscript ; when Thomson, know ing the high merit of the work, con- iurcd him to be off the bargain, and offered to tiud a better purchaser Next morning Fielding hastened to his appointment with as much ap prehension lest the bookseller should keep to his bargain as lie had felt the day before lest he should altogether decline it. To the author's great joy, the ignorant trafficker in literature i'eclineil, and returned the manu 'cript. He next set off with a light heart to Ids friend Thomson; and the novelist and the poet then went to Andrew Millar, the great publisher of the day, Millar, as was Ms practice vf ith works of light reading, handed the manu script to his wile, who, having read it advised him by no menus to let it slip through his (Ingerí'. Millar now in vited the two triends to meet him at a coffee house in the Strand, where after dinner, the bookseller, with ü'reat caution, offered Fielding two huuured pounds for the manuscript The novelist was amazed at the large ness of the offer. "Then, my good sir,"siiid he, recov ering him.H'lf from this unexpected si roke of good fortune, "give me your liand the book is yours; and, wait er," continued lie, "bring a coup! of bottles of your best port." Before Millar died he had clearer Jones," out. of which he generously made Fieldiug various preseuts, to the amount of two thousand pounds and, when he died, he bequeathed handsome legacy to each of Fielding' sons. Ready Wt. The late Bishop Wilbrrforce, of England, wan noticed from boyhoo lor Lis renily wit. Anecdotes, ci,r rent in Knglitih tociety, show him to have much of the power of Sidney Smith in brilliant repartee, and sin den sallies of humor. Au ainusiu story is told of his school life which indicates that the gift came by ua turn rather than by culture. The boy's study room was a large apartment in au upper &lory, quite as favorable for iport aR for study. Une day they were in high glee, and shak ing the whole house with their rack et, when the teacher after several fruitless warnings, rushed up stairs prepared for sharp action. Young Wiberforce was nearest the door, and seemed doomed to be the first victim But, quick us lightning he caught a Jewish boy by the collar Tfuug him n u id with his back to the enrayed teacher, and said with a mer ry twinkle in his eve, "First the Jew sir, and then the Outile." The jok disarmed the teacher, and both Jew and Gentile escaped. A practical view.-MUs Anne X (who is showing her Aunt Jeru.lia, from Skowhegan, the beauties of art) "This is Titian's Venus. Isn't she beautiful? See the grace of her pose, etc." Aunt Jerusha " Wal, uoaw ! she ism pretty fair lookiu'gal, but it's dreadful unhealthy to ?'eep with yer arm under yer head." ,.v - 'How is it," exclaimed the late Horace Greeley one day to a subordi nate, "that such . a blunder as this could occur iu the Tribune? I wrote that name 'Black,' and hero it is print ed Brown!' " The subordinate pon dered the matter, and then replied. "I suppose the compositor and proof reader mutt both be color-blind."
