FOR THE SOUTH. MISSISSIPPI, SATURDAY MORNING. OCTOBER 16. 1858. ! A BORE. - I and Smyler one night stepped into a quiet hotel to read tho news. (The reader is perfectly correct we also ordered two glasses of lnger to come with the puper.) ; 1 was in the midst of an inteiesfing and rather abstruse article, when a fi lgctty and selfish, overbearing looking person alongside me, and who appeared in deep thought probably on the means to be adopteii to g"t poor devi'8 to work an hour longer daily, at lower wiges began nervously to flirt a stiff tooth-pick. The "flip, fl p, flap," coming so suddenly upon my ear, tor a moment destroyed the thread of the argument. I started, looked round at him, and resumed "1'lipl Hp! flip!" he went at it again Again I stared at him a little harder. A nervous looking gentleman in the opposite corner eyed him too. And then I endeav ored to pick up ray subject again. nip i nip 1, "Damn the fellow !" I muttcied, and caught a strange gleam in the corner ot Stnyler's eye, 1 r or two or bree minutes the aiin-naiu-- continued, and I .beg-in to think it best quietly proceed to smue other house, whe n uftef a most energetic "Fiip ! flip! flip!" trom my neighbor, "Jtlit i tat 1 1 at I . was echo 1 by S nylerN boot heel on the fl air. , , I trot a glimmer of Smyler' s intentions.

T. P. looked dignified, and with an im portant air called for a bottle of wiue, which lie pioceeded to drink in s.-lemn grandeur. On the strength of the impression which he imagined such an ouilay in that fifth-rate place must have naturally produced, he thought hu'd try it on ajjain. "Fhp! flip! flip!" Three short, sharp whistles, which had evidently been practised in old Bowery, were the leading accompaniment, tnun a saucy lookiug fellow in bis shirt sleeves, and ho had caugnt up ihe j ike. "Kit 1 tat I tat,!" "Tan! tap I tap!" "Bow! wow! w w !" from another new volunteer, a very particular friend of Smyler. " Y oat do you mean ; fiercely demaudiid T.

"Hi ! hi ! hi !" , "Can't I flirt my tooth pick; if I l'ke ?" ferociously demanded the port wine patron- tzer. "Certainly," blandly replied Smyler; "and you of course cannot possibly object to my employing my foot thus : "Hal I tat! tat!' "Or I my hands thus: tap! tup! top!" issued from the opposite corner. "Or I my mouth, dexterously exemplified by him from the Bowery. "Ui !

These arc all important items! with an overseer, and vet within tho ran tre of my observation I see little else but disre gard for all improvement. I have given the subject a great deal of study. CONNUBIAL FELICITY. Mr. Slang used to Say " my horses, my boys." Mr. Slang now invariably savs. "our horses, our boys," or "our fiirin." This substitution of "our" for "my," by Mr. Slang, was brought, about thus : Mr. Slang hud just married a second w'fo. On 'ho day after tne wedding, Mr. Slang casually remarked, " I now intend to enlarge my dairy. " 1 u mean our dairy, my dear, replied Mrs. SI-. "No," qmth Mr. Slang, "I say MY j dairy. " Say OUR dairy. Mr. Slang." " No, my dairy.", " No, our dairy, say oun !'' screamed Mrs. Slang, seizing the poker. " My dairy, MY dairy," vociferated the husband. ' Our dairy, OUR dairy, re-echoed the wife, emphasizing each " our" with a blow of tho poker upon the back of the cringing! spouse, Mr. Slang retreated under the bed clothes. Mr Slang remained under several minutes waiting for a calm. At length his wife saw him thrusting his head nut of the foot, of the bed, much like a turtle from his shell. " What aro you looking for, Mr. Slung ?" said she. " I'm looking, my dear," sniveled be, " to -see anything of OUR hat. Tbe struggle was over. It was our horses. mr dairy, and on the next Suuday morning! he very humbly asked her if he might wear our clean linen breeches to church. Leaves. No manure is so well worth the saving in October and November, as the fa'ling leaves of the season. According to Payen, they contain neaily thrco times as much nitrogen as ordinary barn-yard ma nure i and every garlener who has strewn and converted them in his trenches late in the fall or in December, must have noticed the next season how black and moist tbe soil is that adheres to tho thrifty young beets he pulls! No vegetable substance yields it woody fibre and becomes soluble quicker than leaves, and from this very cause they are soon dried np, scattered to tho winds and wasted if not gathered nnd trenched in or composted, befote tho advent of severe winter. Few men are driven to desperation with out having had themselves a hand in tbe driving. Why is a weathercock like a loafer 1 ' Be cause it is constantly going round doing nothing.
