Josh Silsbee, the well known delineator 
of Yankee character is now travelling in 
England, where it is said lie had contrived 
by good management to pick up a compe- 
tence for himself in afterlife. He seems 
to have been a favorite with the English 
public, who enjoy his jokes hugely, and 
crowd the theatres, on the n jg’hts of his 
performance, to hear his stones, and laugh 
over his broad characters of Yankee 1 fs 
“at hum.’ 7’lie best of the joke is, that if 
•John Hull ‘gets the laugh on us,’ he has to 
;pay for it out of his own pocket. Of all 
Ills various delieneations, Josh is said to 
be peculiarly happy in portraying the 
Ya ikee pedlar — a race of beings, not yet 

Yankee pedlers, from time immemorial 
dtave been famous for doing others, and 
bein^ done, notwithstanding their shrewd- 
ness, and though, in the long run, they 
•come sometimes right side up, yet once in 
a while, the force of circumstances so 
corners them that they are obliged to cry 
peccavF The following story, however, 
shows how a Yankee instca 1 of being cor- 
nered himself, managed to ^et the magis- 
traes of the vil li age where he was sojourn- 
ing, in rather a tight place: — 

‘In the course of human events,’ to fin ! 
a new style antipodean with the flood, or 
•extemporary with the time of  ieorge Wa- 
shington — there happened to be a pedler 
of the Old Bay State, by the name of Ike 
Jewel, who one day packed by his traps 
and started off South, along the line of 
t ie Mississippi, in order to dis|ens; pat- 
ents for varrious inventions — from a tooth- 
pick to a fanning mill — and at last brought 
up at the little village of Helena, in the 
State of Arkansas. 

Now, it happene I that oil the very day 
Mr. Jewel arrived in town, a follow had 
been arrested for negro stealing, and plac- 
ed in the old log jail, preparatory to re- 
ceiving the penalty of fifty lashes for the 
offence. The jail being insecure, there 
being no patrol alia horse guards to pro- 
tect it, anrf the prisoner having a tinge of 
Jack Sheppari' blood in his veins, mana- 
ge 1 to escape, and of course flew by night 
after the manner of the witches in Mac- 
bull. The consequence was that when 
the Sheriff went next morning, in all the 
 1 gnity of official pride, to administer the 
punishment, He was both surprised arid in- 
clignanl to find his man non est inaen- 

An, this won't do,’ said the clignatory 
lip and looking poignards at 
the under Sheriff, a cariotty-headed depu- 
ty, with a pumpkin headed beard of a 
week’s growth. We must set spies about 
for him and have hitx re-spprehende !,’ 
Scoats were immediately despatched on 
oil side, all of whom bad seen the man 
on trial and knew his face, and as the 
sheriff's Ebenezer was hugely ‘riz,’ their 
orders were uncompromisingly stringent. 

Now it happened from some strange 
end unfortunate cau-e, lluit the newlv ar- 
rived Yankee pedler was the very image 
— tne regular ‘Corsican Brother’ — the Sia- 
mese Twin of the fugitive culprit, and, as 
he was buttering a pancake at breakfast 
next morning, ?. large, strong man, with 
an official grin, tapped Aim gently on the 

‘Well,’ said the Yankee, ‘what’s the row 
neow, eh? 

‘Want you, mister,’ was the brief reply. 
‘Yee-es — due you want me? 1 ‘spose 
you have beam of my having cum tue town 
with my everlastin,’ and all-snortin’ in- 
ventions. \ ou’re wide awake, I see, for 
cumming afore any one else.’ 

‘Curse vour inventions.’ said the official 
‘The sheriffwants you immediately. You 
thought to escape, did you?’ 

‘Sheriff — escape! Luke a-liere, critter 
what on airth due yeou mean?’ 

‘Mean for you to come along with me 
without another word.’ And so saving, 
ho dragged the pe Her out of the room. 
Oil the wav he learne 1 the circumstances 
of the arrest, an l although he protested 
an 1 swore ha was not the man, the like- 
ness was too strong for belief. 

The sheriff advised him for the good of 
bis country and the honor of his friend, 
if he had any, not to tell such ‘dreadful 
Hies.’ but quietly submit to the punish 

The consequence was, he was tied to 
a whipping-post, and the sheriff prepared 
to render in the dreariest manner the in- 

‘Now, before I begin, old fellow,’ said 
the sheriff, ‘what have you got to sag? 

‘0, nothin' in particular,’ said tha pe I- 
lor, laughing, with a meaning curve’of 
the lip; only if you can afford to pay for 
luxuries, mister, go ahead.’ 

The sheriff not comprehending the drift 
of this Business-like assertion, applied the 
scourge and at every cut the Yankee laugh- 
ed with immoderate glee. Lash succeed- 
ed lash, and still lie laughed, and still the 
wonder grew. When the fifth lash had 
been well laid on, as a parting salute, the 
sheriff, in a flood of wonderment, threw 
down his whip, and asked him the reason 
of his mirth. 

‘I’m regularly rlumfounded,’ said he; 

•what in the world makes you laugh so?, 
‘laugh! Why, who could help iG’ fair- 
ly roared the Yankee. I’m laughing- teu 
think heow you’ve been sucked in on this 
operation — I ain’t the man'.’ 

He said tnis so meaningly, that the slier- 
iffbagan to think there must be mistake 
somewhere. The Yankee continued: 

•It strikes mo that business in my line 
s goin’ *.eu be rayther dull in this teowu, 
and ef there’s any law teu be had, I’ll 
speckalate on this licking, and see ef I 
can t turn it teu some account. I’m al- 
ways open for trade, mister, efyeou want 
teu compromise — for remember 
licked, the wrong man!'

•What a long tail our comet has got !’ 
Professor Olmsted, of Yale College, in a 
town lecture upon astronomy, the other 
evening, speaking of the ‘Great American 
Comet,’ (we take it there is no othef such 
comet in ‘Ew-rop,’) obsetved that ‘The 
rate at which it traveled was about one 
million three hundrel thousand miles an 
hqur, more than four thousand miles to 
every pulsalicn of the wrist, or beat o! 
the clock. It was also remarkable for 
its near approach to the sun; n fact, it al- 
most grazed that body. The least ealeu- j 
lation of its tail made it about a bun Ire 1 ! 
millions of miles in length. So that 
were it wound round the earth like a ser- | 
pent, it would go around it four thousan 1 I 
times !’ Now it seems  o us that this is 
too big a tail for any ‘body,’ celestial or | 
terrestrial, and especially for an ‘erratic j 
body,’ bound by no law unless it be by i 
some ‘higher law’ than is known to the 
other ‘bodies celestial,’ whose ‘glory’! 
doesn’t He in exactly the same direc tion. | 
Apropos of this magnificent settle of ce- \ 
lestial measurement: it reminds of a re- 
ply once made in England by one of our 
own ’cute Yankees to a Lon Ion cockney, 
who, standing upon the ‘benk of the 
Terns, liea-urr Grinniuge,’ said: ‘Me dealt 
Saw; av’ you any such rivers as that in 
E nerikaw ?’ ‘As that!!' exclaimed the 
Yankee: ‘what, that muddy creek! Get 
eout ! Why, we’ve got more’n ten-an.l- 
iwenty rivers that would flow straight 
through the ‘Big Brook,’ the ’Tlaiuic 
ocean, that shets you off from us, and then 
sti.k eout furder on both sides than all 
the rivers that you got in your hull garden 
patch, as you call your little ‘Island o’ 
EngAnnd !’ ‘Ged hlcz me soul!’ ex- 
claimed the cockney, drily: ‘that’s very 
extro I’nary !’ And it was, ‘rayther !’ But 
comet’s tails out of the question, we have 
pigs tails enough, accumulated in one year 
in the capital of one State in the Union, 
to eclipse the erratic heavenly body of 
which Professor Olmsted speaks, xtccu- 
ra;e statistics have been furnished, from a 
porcine ‘observatory’ at Cincinnati, from 
which it appears that pigs enough are 
slaughtered in the ‘Queen City of the 
West’ alone, not only to cross the At- 
lantic, each with the tail of his next neigh- 
bor in his mouth, but that, without strait- 
ening the kinks in the tail of any one 
‘individual’ of the ‘species’ which ‘form 
the line,’ the whole would reach, and 
nearly double, on the other side ! Grand 
is astronomy! Wonderful, mathematics !

It is a difficult matter to learn old Jogs 
new tricks, and the “ancient’ Farmers, at 
the present day, had rather plough with 
their grandfather’s old clumpy tna thine, 
titan to think of saving their shoulders by 
an outlay of a few dollars for any of the 
‘-new-fangled things,’ as they call them, 
that science and sk : l! have produced to 
benefit the agrigullur ei. The N. Y. Tri- 
1 bune has a good article on this subject. 

That be is a public benefactory who 
cautes two blades of grass to grow where 
hut one grew befo-c, is a truth which needs 
no elucidation; but that a publication of 
the a rgregate harvests of our country is 
not merely practicable, but would be sig- 
nally profitable — is a truth not yet ade- 
quately impressed on the public mind. 
The popular dfliicteocyj s ratn r want ol

severally the next ten farmers you meet 
if they do not think our cultivators gener- 
ally overrun too much land — .1 they do 
not plough too shallow and manure too 
light, and sow too late, and till too slo- J 
venly — and nine of the teu will unites. la- | 
tingly answer, yes. Then take pains to 
enquire carefully as to the habits ol these 
same farmers, and you will find five ors;x 
of them practicing habitually the very er- 1 
rors they so freely condemn — shallow 

ploughing, scanty fertilizing, late s iwing 
shabby tilling, and probably feeding of

Paris Scandal. — The fashionable 
world of Paris has been much amused witlt 
the following little bit of Scandal. An 
American, gentleman though married to a 
ebarminr little woman, had taken a fancy 
to an actress ofthe Palais Royal, to whom 
he was nightly offering his carriage and arm 
to return home. She one day told him 
tint she had seen at a jeweller’s a parure 
of diamonds, which she fancied as much 
as he fancic I bur. Our countryman im- 
mediately procec 1c 1 to the place, to bar- 
gain for the neckla: e an l bracelets; but 
being aske 1 5,000 francs for it, he only 
oil :rei 4,000 francs, and was refused. On 
the next day the actress cnllel on the 
jeweller, ari I being tol I what had taken 
place, site gave a bank bill of 1,000 francs 
to the jeweller, who, a few hours after, 
having received the call of the young 
American, consented to let him have the 
jewels for 4.000 francs. Thus far, thus 
well; but the most amusing part of the farce 

is, that M ’tad another sweetheart, 

whom he desired to please; and to whom 
he offere I the diamonds which he had been 
paid for by the actress ofthe Palais Roy- 
al. As soon as M !ile. P knew 

how she had been deceived, she sent a few 
lines to the American deceiver, who being

the money.

from year to year. 

Two-thirds of the farmers suppose the 
great truths revealed to agriculture by sci- 
ence, applicable everywhere but on their J 
own farms! One with two hun Iredacrei 
will say, when pressed to do beter — 

‘Oh, l can’t afford to drain and subsoil 
and by ^uano or phosphates, and so put 
my land into the best condition; I haven’t

‘But my goo 1 sir! don’t you understand 
that you could turn off more produce from

do from your whole two hundred. 

“Well, perhaps might,’ 

•Then why not sell enough ofyour ara-

realize that it is sheer, ruinous waste, to

acres for a hundred bushels of In lian corn, 
when that qnanity might surely be grown 
on two acres? Can’t you understan 1 that

A friend at West Point tells us 
a comical anecdote of a very diffident 
young clergyman, who had been invited 
to dine with a professional brother, who 
also kept a young ladies boarding school.

A Thrilling Incident. — Tire old flag- 
staff at Jefferson Barracks, Missouri, hav- 
ing become decayed was ordered to be ta- 
ken down a few days- since, and, accor- 
dingly, a soldier of Col. Bragg’s battery, 
named Michael McAnally mounted to the 
cross-trees and unshipped the top-mast; 
from some cause it became unmanageable 
and glided through the platform to tha 
ground. The man at the mast-head kept 
his post composedly, and gave timely 
warning to the party below-'to stand from 

under.” Most men with a spar fifty feet 
long, shooting an I rasping like an arrow 
thier hands, with an insecure looting- at a 
dizzy height, would have “left the yard,” 
and tumbled from the platform.

them fine feelings instead of good ones, and 
do harm to those whom they are anxious to

wretched state, they color so highly as to 
make these poor people think themselves 
worse oti than they resily arc.”

The main-mast was forty-eight feet bight;

A good Whiter. — We recollect read- 
ing an anecdote of a younggentleman of 
a gin-an, 1-water turn of mind anti collar, 
who was determined, in his admiration 
of the intellectual, not to wed unless the 
object of his admiration was an accom 
plisheu woman and a good writer. A 
pract cal old friend of his, who attached 
a very literal meaning to expressions, told 
him he knew a young lady who would 
just suit him. 

The introduction took place, and the 
young gentleman went directly to the 

point. ‘Miss ,’ said he, ‘are you a 

writer ?’ 

‘Yeth, thur,’ replied she blushing. 

‘Who are your lavorite authors ? — John- 
son, Scott, Steele, Addison, Goldsmith, 
or whom ?’ 

‘Olt, thur,’ she naively replied, ‘I don’t 
know nothing about that, thur — 1 write 
small hand!’ 

The English Postoffice. — England, 
for pcst-oflice purposes, is divided into 
seven districts. Each district is placed 
under the superintendence of a surveyor, 
to whom all tne post-office employees in 
the district are subordinate. Letters post- 
ed in each district are stamped with a pe- 
culiar colors! composition. Thus, all 
postmasters in the western district stamp 
letters with a yellow covered composition; 
in the midland district the color is blue; 
in tlie home district it is brown; in the 
northern re I;  n the North Wales green; 
and in the Louth Wales purple. Foreign 
mails now arrive at the general post-of- 
fice at almost all hours oi" the night. As 
soon as news of their approach to Lon- 
don reaches the general post office from 
the outpons, by electric telegraph, a staff 
of clerks is summoned by messengers, 
an l the mail got ready for distribution.— - 
By this arrangement the whole of the for- 
eign mails are delivered in London and 
despatched by the morning mails, instead 
ol being left behind, as was often the 
case when the former did not arrive in 
London before four or five o’clock in the 
morning, by the regular night mails. In 
all other departments there is the same 
effective organization Lr despatch.— N.

The Thoughts of a Hay. — If the 
thoughts which pass through the mind of 
a person in a day, could he gathered to- 
gether and placed in the order in which 
they first appeared, what a mountain of 
ideas would be brought to view ! They 
would lorra a monster quilt of mental 
patchwork, chequered with pieces of ev- 
ery shape, size and hue. They would 
prove time, space and order to be nonen- 
tities compared with thought. 

The speed with which they travel from 
place to place, as far exceeds that of 
electricity, as the rapidity of motion of 
that time annihilating substance does an 
ordinary canal boat. One thought is 
resting upon the edibles for breaklast — 
the net, in a second of time, has travers- 
e: I the uni verse, and reached the sun's 
] centre, wondering what it is maJe of; 
j while a third is peering into the snow- 
l wreaths that circle round the cap of the 
topmost peak of Mont Blanc. 

Then follows half a thought on death, 
and twenty on the means of keeping 
alive; two on the former President, and 
ten on the President elect; three on a 
new coat, and one on getting a pair of 
boots mended; six on the changes of life, 
and twelve on the change in the pocket. 

! And, if the thinker should by chance be 
j an editor, a thought apiece on shocking 
murders, horrible accidents, funny stories, 

| sentimental poetry, and telegraphic news, 
with a thousand and one thoughts on de- 
linquent subscribers.— N. Y. Daybook . 

Latf. Hours. — Mr. Barham, author of 
the Ingoldsby Legends, when a youth, 
studied witn Air. Hodson, afterwards prin- 
j cipal of the Brazen-nose. This gentle- 
man, who, doubtless discerning, spite of 
an apparent levity, much that was ami- 
able and higdi minded in his pupil, treat- 
ed him with marked indulgence, sent, 
however, on one occasion, to demand an 
explanation of his continued absence 
from morning chapel' ‘The tact is, sir, 

I urged his pupil, ‘you are too late forme.’ 
‘Too late !’ replied the tutor in astonish- 
ment. ‘Yes, sir; 1 cannot set up till sev- 
en o’clock in the morning; I am a man 
of regular habits, and unless 1 get to be I 
i by four or five at latest, 1 am really fit for 
nothing next day.’ — Life of Barham. 

A Rebuff. — A worthy man in this 
j great metropolis recently visited a ‘medi- 
um’ to witness the wonders of spiritual 
rappings. He had lived twelve years 
with a notorious shrew, who at last died, 
soon after which he married a young wo- 
man of comely person and pleasant dis- 
position. On inquiring if any spirits 
were present, he was answered by raps 
in the affirmative. ‘Who ?” ‘The spirit 
of Melinda, your deceased wife.’ ‘Ah,’ 
exclaimed he, with a gesture of alarm; 
but. recovering hitnself, he kindly inquir- 
ed, ‘Are you satisfied with your condi- 
tion ? — are you happy?' ‘Perfectly so,’ 
replied the spirit. ‘So am 1,’ gruffly ex- 
claimed the ungallant inquirer, as he 
turned upon his heel and walked off. —

Treatment of Sbarlet Fever. — Dr. j 
Thomas R. Hereford, of this city, in a 
concmunication which appears in the Al-

physic lias been an error in the mauaae- 
ment ol scarlatina. He says during thirty 
years practice lie lias found that tiie less 
active medicine ho use l the greater was 
his success in the treatment of this disease 
He disclaims any motives of vanity or 
self-interest in Ins statement. Ills treat- 
ment is described as follows: 

“In conclusion, I will say my treatment 
of scarlet fever is very simple. Open the 
bowels regular every day with some mild 
aperient medicine, such as cdstor oil senna 
&c., and keep the patient at rest an i 
comforrab ly warm; spongethe surface with 
tepid water two or three ti mes a day; while 
ills iio.ter than natural admit fresh air, 
live on a blan 1 diet, such as a cupfull of 
arrow-root several times a day; toast wa- 
ter for a common drink. Gargles made

quiries respecting the Colonel's health, 
from his many friends, we deem it prop- 
er to state that he is improving. He can 
now write a fair hand-- no paralysis vis-

ment of the name of Col. Pleasant Bush 
as a candidate to represent this Senatorial 
district in the Legislature. M e had heard 
the Colonel’s name in connection with 
this subject some time before, tut we had 
also heard that his health was likely to 
interfere with the canvass, and that he 
would not probably consent llrathis name 
should he used. We were glad to learn 
that his health was SO much improve 1 as 
to induce him to believe that he would 
soon be restored. 

M'e have since heard that his prospect 
of immediate restoration to health is some- 
what doubtful. Tiiis is* unfortunate; but

definite were accomplished, it would be

Messrs. Fowler tj- Ludlow: 

Gentlemen: We have yours, inquring 
about the operation of the Iron Lever Hay 
and Stock Scales you manufactured for us, 
and in reply, would say that we are very 
much pleased with them. We have always 
found them exceedingly correct in weighing 
and it is our opinion that the Scales are dur- 
able, and also skilfully and thoroughly built. 
So nice are their adjustment, and so free 
from friction, that while they will weigh 
e ! ght thousand pounds, one ounce will turn 
the beam. Respeeifuily, yours,
