justly said is a weed that will grow in barren soil it is generally found in those who have few good qualities to recommend them One old writer says it may be termed the grand sepulchre of all the other sions us they decay But unlike other tombx it is enlarged by re- and Moore the poet speaks uf it as That of man's in the ot their with ami And collecting lumber in the rear The lived of all the celebrated misers will be found much the same iu these They were very seldom married the were unsocial though sometimes fond of animal pets they maintained existence on food the and quality of which a dog would have objected to they were very dom stirred to Iho slightest degree of benevolence and they nearly always disappointed the expectations of their heirs But there are some exceptions to these general rules Barrow in his travels mentions having seen a Dutch miser near the Cape of Good Hope He was hill old man with a thin sallow visage beard of dingy black that ing to the eyes where it met the gling hair of the forehead obscuring the face like a visor Living with him as his wife was an old Hottentot woman nearly 100 years old Avarice seemed to run in the family for he had a brothei and sister who lived several miles of among the mountains TOO were equally parsimonious In the beginning of this century there was an old man named W Fuller who lived with his son in a hut consisting of two chambers and n Their allowance of food was a and a pint of porter between the two for the last being a ury they could not go without proving that appetite was stronger than will They went to bed in the dark Olc Fuller was a banker and retained hi clerks ou low salaries by promising them legacies when he died But the prom ises were not fulfilled he wrote his wil on the back of an old letter and left al his property worth to his son That the hoarding of money has given actual pleasure to these poor wretches there can bo no doubt It stands ti reason it must bo so or they hardly throw up their interest iu both First in this then dammed in that to come Jeremy Taylor a famous miser used to say if his successors had as much pleasure iu spending his property as he had in hoarding it up they need not complain of their hard lot in this Mention is of a miser whose pulse quickened as if in a fever on hearing a large sum of money mentioned He was a Catholic and made the sign of the cross with a gold goin He had chests full of gold each named after some aud decorated them on days When dying he requested the tors to withdraw from the room n fow moments They did so On returning they found the old man lying dead on a largo bag both his hands clutching a piece of gold This calls to mind the case of Henry Beaufort Cardinal of Winchester who cried out on his Fye will not death be hired and will money do nothing Must I die that have such If the whole of England would save nay life I am able cither by policy to get it or by riches to buy The death of the miser Foscoe who amassed an immense fortune by usury and taking every advantage he could of the necessities of the unfortunate was dramatically appropriate For of safety he dug a hole in the ground and secreted his treasure there he made a trap door wit ha spring lock and would go down daily to gloat over his savings Ho lived a solitary life but one day his neighbors remarked that he had not been seen for an unusually long time They made search for him through the house the woods and the ponds but failed to find him Years when men were repairing the house they came across the secret cave in the cellar Deepening it they found re- mains amid heavy bags of ures he had died with the object of his devotion The methods by which misers have accumulated their huge fortunes much the same it was by saving rathe than by making money that they be came rich Daniel Dancer dined on or eggs and warmed up hi cold pancakes that were left over by carrying them in his pocket who was worth nearly car ried old bones in his pocket taking them out to his farm to be used as fertilizers Another miser used to boil a o and fourteen hard dumplings o Sunday that would be the allowance o food for himself and sister for the week Dancer saved on soap never using it o towels he washed himself in the rive and dried himself iu the sun He used to a of snuff putting it in a box he curried with him This he ex- changed for n farthing caudle until tlie box was again filled He lined an old meal suck for a shirt and a bundle of straw fur n pillow But ho generous to bis dog to whom lie n pint of u day lie died worth There a celebrated miser named Audley lived iu the time of the Stuarts and keenness HA a ness man was He was employed as a clerk lit bix a week and iu the course of n few years by dint uf the economical practices that come natural to persons of ilk to engage ill speculation His Inbit was to buy bad for a trifle inul afterward com- pound with the An anecdote will his A tradesman Miller owed a named White and seeing no to ob- tain it Miller being sued for the amount Audley goet to White and for the debt the chant accents Then the miser goes to Miller and obtains his quittance of the debt for upon Die condition

consecutive failing to pay u fine of acquitted of his debts arranged with Ids creditors and commenced or three years afterward the began to call for his installments uid Miller found on calculating that ou he of the twentieth month he would lave to pay so he refused the of his bond and gave And Icy he forfeit a remarkable French miser was at oue time the mayor of Boulogne ind while in that position partly lined himself by being eral nt the market while munching a scrap of bread he would partake of thete Gratuitous draughts Ho always sled to Paris on foot aud fearful lest he should be robbed took good care never to have more than three pence in his if he needed more money he begged on the roml By such methods uid lending money to the French he made a fortune of sprung from a single shilling During the very cold winter of 17131 he found it necessary to purchase some extra fuel and endeavored to beat down the wood merchant in his price The man drove off aud stole a few logs from the back of the cart In hastening away with them he became overheated and contracted a bad fever He scut for he surgeon telling him he wanted to be bled As the surgeon charged half a livre which was considered too much a barber was called in who agreed to open a vein for threepence But said the cautious miser how often will it be requisite to bleed Three replied the barber Three Aud pray what quantify of blood do you intend to take from me at each operation About eight ounces each time That will be too much too I know n cheaper way take the whole twenty-four ounces at once and that will save me pence He saved his sixpence but loot his life Sir William Smyth of Bedfordshire a wealthy miser agreed to give GO if Dr Taylor a celebrated re- stored him to sight The doctor so well that Sir William was able to read and write all the rest of his life without spectacles But he pretended at the time of his cure that he only had a glimmer of his surroundings aud on that account succeeded in getting the fee reduced to one-third of the original price A St Petersburg miser who lived in the time of Catharine II resorted to a peculiar method to save a little money He had a large mastiff dog to watch his house and trained him to bark and howl all night finally the dog died Not caring to go to the expense of chasing another the old man personated a dog himself and went about the honse morning and evening barking and howling in imitation to his former tector This man lived in one damp room in a large dilapidated old house nd we are told that his cellar contained of gold and packages of silver He as the richest man in Russia In striking contrast to the mean which stem to come natural the miser there are two anecdotes ml have been handed down to us of le benevolence of extremely avaricious ien Some years ago there lived in France a miser named was noted for his parsimony had al AN OLD BLOCKADE RUNNER Princo Givet Some of Service in Diyi of the Confederacy the Philadelphia Capt Henry Price is the owner and master of the flue schooner of Charleston S C His vessel reached this port u few days ago with a cargo of feet of pine lumber while the longshoremen were unloading her he entertained a interested listeners with his story of blockade for years in Charleston harbor I am now sixty-seven years of said he and for years I have been a seafaring man and during all that length of service was never wrecked but once and that was on the const of Ireland iii the ship Vulcan Capt Daniel Bunker of New York The ship wits homeward bound loaded with iron from Stockholm but having a leak she bore up toward in distress and in doing BO was misled by a bright ou shore which mistook for a lighthouse It was subsequently ascertained that the light was made by the burning of tar by a in distress and that five vessels were wrecked that night in consequence of making the same mistake as the Every seaman ou bouid of the can Mas the exception of u lad all on board of the four other sels that were wrecked were lost For forty-seven years I have been a of Charleston and during the greatest part of that time I have held a more vessels While the war lasted 1 was sole owner of the schooner and had an interest iu half a dozen blockade runners but it is of the that I particularly want to speak For two years I landed with that schooner from thirty to fifty tons of sand at Fort Suinter every other night and during that period of blockade I am quite certain that one sand shots mid shells were fired at my vessel by the monitors gunboats and barges in the harbor but with the ex- ception of a long fired from battery Wagner three the San tee was never struck The last night I ran the blockade thirty-two shots and shells were fired at me and owing to the close proximity with which they whizzed about my ears I refused to run the blockade any more and for that refusal I was arrested by provost marshal of Charles ton and ordered to the front of Lee's army I refused to go ami appealed to Commodore Tucker commander of the confederate fleet at Charleston ami when I made the fact to him that my vessel absolutely floated the union on account of the deat calm that prevailed and because of the perfection of the Yankee system of ing calcium light a great distance ade running in a sailing vessel under dead calm was not advisable but that 1 would be one of a dozen to volunteer to run a steamboat provided the ment would furnish the boat After thorough bearing of the case dore Tucker exonerated me Having no more sand with which to repair the daia age made the last to the fort by shots from the union gunboats in less than ninety days from the time 1 qui carrying sand the Bebs walked out o Sumter and the Yanks walked in While it is true that my vessel tb Santee escaped without any other dam age than the cutting her mainsail ye in a single night I came near losing be at the hands of those upon my own sid of the confederates The night that Charleston was evacuated the confederate commander issued orders that all vessels of every description should be burned to prevent their falling into hands of the Union forces When the squad came on board the tee for that purpose I met them on deck told them 1 knew they had a duty to form that they were acting under orders but before they fired her I wanted them to walk down in the cabin and get a cup of coffee Having had an interest iu several blockade I always kept myself supplied with the best tea and coffee that came into the confederacy and as the squad that came aboard of the Santee to fire her had not had thing better than wheat or chicory or sweet potato coffee for a year or more a provost marshal's open hands if right well tarred It has always been said that Gen Sherman's troops burned immense tities of cotton supplies etc on his inarch through Georgia to Charleston doubtless he did destroy much valuable property but so as Charleston and H vicinity is concerned I eau attest that bout all the burning was done by the just as they wete leaving he view entertained by the confederate government was that it was better to movable property than have it all into the bunds of the Yankee and if the truth was known most of the caused by fire Unbilled to Jen Sherman's army was aused bv the action of the FASHIONABLE FANCIES FROM OUR STATE EXCHANGES THE designs of some of the new uled gauzes which come in

servant for throwing away n match only one end of which had been When the collector went in and asked for a contribution he did not expect much success and was agreeably to receive a check for 400

the cer hi command took my telescope quadrant and other valuable things I had on board the vessel These were subsequently restored to me by order of to whom I made personal of the action of the officer in question About that time I was reasonably well-off I had chased 200 bales of Sea Island cotton at different times with confederate scrip I owned 19 likely young negroes a few houses in Charleston the Santee and other ship property but the day the Union forces took possession of ton my boys worth easily were free men I thought however that 1 could hold on to my cotton as it was al

Bates carrying an So tic and excited were the populace of London that when Bates appeared upon the scene they seemed to lose all control over themselves The horses of the sergeant's carriage were
