There is many a man who has grown rich tipou the Hliine." During the Erst pirt of tbe voyage, the passengers were very talkative and merrv; and the Jew, with big nnllet under his am he did not lay it the object of much mirth and mockery, as, altis I is of- ten the cafe with those of his nation. Hut as the vessel railed onward, and passed Thiirington nnd Saint A'eit. the passengers, one after the other, grew silent, and gazed down the liver, uutil olio ppokc out: "Come, .Tew, do jou not know any p time that will amuse ns Your fathers must luvc contrived many nosio during their lun -lay in the wilderness.'1 "Xow is the thought the Jew, "to shear my And he prop-wed that they f-hould' sit round in a circle, and pro- pound very ciirinus CJIK stions to each other, aud he, with tlicir pcruiUcion, would sit with them. who coald not answer the questions should pay the one who propoun- ded them a twelve krcutzer piece; and those who answered tlictu pertinently should re- ceive a twelve krctitzcr piece. The proposal the company; nnd loping to dircrt themselves with the .Tow's wit or stupidity, each one asked, at random, whatever entered IIH head. Thus, for example, the firct one 'How many soft-boiled could tbe giant 3oliah cat upon an empty All raid that it was impossible to answer hat question, nnd each paid his twelve frontiers. ]Jut Ihe Jew Mid, "One; for be who has eaten one egg cannot cat ,1 second upon an mpty stomach." And tho other paid him wehe krctitzcrs. The second thought, Wait, Jew, T will ry you out nf the New Testament, and I [link I phnll win my piece. "Why did the Paul write thu pecoml epistle to the The Jew Slid: "Uccausn be was not in Joriiith, otherwise he would have fjxih-n to !icm." So he won another twelvekrcutz'cr iece. When the tliird Paw that the Jew was so el! versed in tliu Uiblc, he tried him in ;i iffereiit way. "Who prolongs his work to s great a length .is possible, and Mill com- letcs it in time T "The rope-maker, if he LJ aid the Jew.

Thu eighth asked, "When a man rides in tho n inter time from IJcru to Untie, nud has forgotten his how must he man- age (hat hands shnll not freeze V" The Jew said, "lie must mahcfisla outof them." .The ninth was the last.

After many preliminary compliment he asked with an air of mischievous "How can n nnn fry two' trouttf in three pans, that :t trout may lie in each No one could ansTcr this, and one after the other gave him a twelve Krculzer piece. But when the ninth desired that he should answer it himself, he frankly acknowledged that ho knew not bow the trout could be fried iu such a way. Then was it maintained that this was un- fair in '.he Jew; but he etomly affirmed, that tliere wa? no provision for it in tbe agree- ment, sire'that he -nho could ansncr the question should pay the luuilzers, and be. fulfilled the agreement by pacing that sum to the ninth, of his comrades, nbu bad asked him to'solvo it himself. Hut they all being rich merchants, and grateful fur tbp amusement which had passed an hour or two very pleasantly for them, laughed heartily oxer their loss nud at the Jew's cunning.. THE BABIES. IJabies arc of two kinds, male and female, and are usually put up iu packages of one, though cotne'imes two, in which they are called twins, when nearly of tbe Fame age. They are not confined to any particu- lar locality, but are found plentifully dis- tributed over nil parts of the inhabited countries. Their ages are isiriunsand have a wide range. Wo have known thorn as young si ca'j to ciltuUtu time on u watch dial, am! then have been them when they had aequirod the healthy tigc of iwcnly- five with n fair prospect of advancing htill farther to babyhood. Their n eight depends a great deal on their heft, but as they twenty-one grow in U-foru it eost.> them anything, it don't matter M> much how big they happen to be win u they commence. 1 Volubly babies have inure pet names than any other known article of their size. In the tender years of their life, sav the firtt twn, they arc lovingly addrcsfcd bv siieli names as Old Ui-autifid, Honeycomb, Him Parling Papa's Old Birred Jlamma'a Joy, Xole's Am-ome, supposed to be .1 contrnotinn of Old lland- and hundrcd.i of othurappcllaliunsvic never could translate. For fcevcral years until they old enough lo play out of door? and Hiil I heir faces, tlioir live.x' are one long contiiinons game of ov.'rybody under the delusion thai all b.ibics are good for is to ki.sa, consi qiiently to f-eu one is lo kiss it. We cannot recollect of ever find- ing in the preeenro of a baby, but what the mother would stay lo it "now be a good lillltt dcjry, and give the gentlc- miHi a nice nwoet kiss." Of courfic we ac- it, though kisf-ing ain't our forte. AVe arj naturally modest and dnu't care to be kissing everybudy. We don't hanker after it as nf our friends do. Wu are will- inir to n pretty girl for her mollinr'i! pake, or oven for her own, rather han have any (rouble, yet we think if p.iid girl owed tu a wu would much prefer ,o have it remain ou interest than to have t paid when it became due; wo never mould present our bill ami demand payment, lot if we continue perfectly sane. We un- derstand that llicro arc quito a number of Ktrsous who differ from us in regard to ng, if so, let them did, asuur subject treats of bullies. The monotony of babies' lives is varied by such little incidents as an attack of the measles, tnuuips or eruup, nnd .wu. would not neglect to speak of cutting tenth. A baby that baa safely got through with all these'infantile is considered worth sonicscveiity-fhc dollars mure thanoiw who" has them in The diseases tire, a case of the measles nil lb.it is necessary is lo hnve them break out and sea to it that don't "strike, iul" With the mumps, just p let they will come put all right.

When w were young we cut our teeth oa a silver dol lar, but as dollars "are now made of paper they won't itand the tear and wear of whole fct of teclh and 'tis cheaper in tli end to invest in the rubber ring.

After clearing up Ihe debriH, mother returns to her thanking her stars that it was only a choirc vcibena that war, ruinci and not Willie's neck. The conversion in Ibc beginning, is a little difficult lo underhand. Tln-y abbrc- vi.ite a deal, and throw aside all pro- nouns as perfectly useless. Listening to their tdk-i.s like iitiending an Italian Opera: ono hears the noifo but. cannot understand wh.it it moans. The firtt or "Mini- ma" distinctly spoken, u worth five dollars to either of the delighted parents, Tlabi must not only, talk; thctniuhcd, but must be talked to, and thu amount of babytalk used in a common fiicd family is prodigioim. Haby's appearance opens a new field to all. Tho old band." who have teen babies before, converse in the language quite fluently, but 'tis ludicrous to hoar a beginner underiuk to master this difficult tongue. Talking babytalk Is an nrt which few ever acquire to perfection, though by constant practice the nioit ttupid can pirtully acijuirc it, yet. it uincs tno or three generaliuns of bubiea lo ti'iake a perfect Hngni-t. 'The cficet ,i baby produces on a family, no matter how sober said family may be, is wonderful to behold. It completely lurii.s the heads of all. If any particular one be- haves morn insane, or in earrit'il away more than the rest, ivc think Grandma will bear off the pjlm, although T.i, Ma. Grandpa, Aunt, Uncle, and ;i lung litt of cousins are not to bu counted out by any means.

On the contrary each uiiu is a little in advance of any yet born, and we think of the numbers yet to and how eicry one will be .1 IrifiV superior lo its pmliWsor, what a glorioiu future awaitj us! We shall oven- lually reach perfection. How can those pprtoiw who beliovo thai MO relrng.ide in- s-tt'ail of prngrcja, reconcile Ibis fact with thoir nbritrd throrjV SOUP jicoplc, a Ktllo enthusiaftic, look upon a baby ".is a thing of beauty and joy forever." Sow we have seen some whom wo thought bad a liberal discount on Ihcir beauty, and Ibcir "joy forever" would quickly vanish on having it commence lo cry and '.'refuse to be when left in our chargc.-nnd ivc busily engaged in reading or writing. It must be rninfnrting to a man, no m.it- k-r how ugly or he may now be, to think that he once was a baby beloved bv a- large circle of relatives and friends. Il is a comfort we would not deny him. There quite a number of tho world's people, who were noj. loving babies a great they' arrived lit years when people ccafcd lovo them, quite early in life, and have never been babies tiucu. r-cmlilo wlie'.it in many respects. neither arc tllc.v arrive at maturity. both are in the hou-e, and are also the family. arc generally' well before they arc done with.'' u Il.tbies, like omy one tljo, have their and' ]5y their "dark sides we have ho reference to 'negro wo would not abolish babies if .we' bad tha.' power, because ,such iiabifg as'we bavo are' Mler all, insist., tint. our. friends shall, refrain from askhur-i them "mump round .1 day or two, mid me tf thtir' own pirticular. bal-y -is, not I hamNonie'T hate to hurt our fricnd'a feelings, but all caiilmtsec beauty alike, and in nine cases out of ten we are obliged to tell .1 small sized lie, and say: "Oh, jes, be is a beautiful baby, nnd so like his mother." We remember yet when n youth, of once daring to say "Jfo" to that question. Wo shall never forget it, neither shall we ever answer so again. We hope we have been forgiven, but wo fear we have not. If we have written anything that hasofleudcd any one, we humbly ask his or her pardon.

Judge Marshall, in his life of Washington, cccond volume-, gives 'expression to senti- ments, and .sfatc? f.icts, tliat have n direct ap- plicability to the present time. Hcfays, in of the horrid massacre of the whites iu rft Domingo, which took place in 179-1, after emancipation had been decreed: "Early and bitter fruits ,of malignant philosophy, irbicli disregarding the actual state of die world, and estimating at no- thing the- miseries of a vast portion of the human 'can coolly and deliberately pursue, through oceans 'of blood, abstract systems for the-.allaiumeut of some fancied, untried good, were gathered in the French West Indies. Instead of proceeding Iu the correction of any abuses which might exist by those alow nnd cautious steps which grad- ually introduce reform without ruin, may prepare and fit society for that better state of things designed for it, and which by tiol attempting mtiy enlarge llw rirclu of happiness, the revolutionists of France pcrsucd the crucTnnd wicked project uf fprc.uling their doctrines of equality am- uiig persons aud between pre- judices which exist, to bo mibducd only by the grave. The rage excited by the pursuit if thii vkionary aud baueful theory, after hrcatciiing symptoms, burst forth on the _'Sdof Augti-t, J7S1, nitli a fury alike dcs- truciivc and general. In onn night .1 prc- :-oiifci trd insurrection oftlie blacks took place iu tho colony of St. Domingo; nnd the white inhabitants of tlic country, wbilc.slccp- ng in their were involved in one in- liftCriniiiiatc slaughter, from which neither igc nnr sex could afford an exception.

The vrrilcr is well acquainted with tho par- ties who relate these facts, acd know them to be persons of unquestionable veracity aud undoubted Christian character! Il occurred at tho bouse of Mrs. Ergcu- bright, sis miles below Port Ilepublic, oil the cast bank of the Shenaudoah river, com- mcncing ou the Oth of May, a. little after sunset, nnd ending the following day, about o'clock in the afternoon. The first indication thai anything unusual was transpiring, was the throwing ajar of door that had been bolted. Afterwa'rd, while the family were at supper, a colored girl came running in, very much frightened, and declared that somebody was burling rocks at her. The sons of Mrs. Ergcnbrigb t took their pistols, and went out, and search- ed; but they could sec uo one. Soou after something struck a window sash, brcakiug 4 panes of glass. Then a pine knot was hurled through the window, and rocks con- tinued to be thrown until about 10 o'clock at night, whcu it ceased. Several neighbors had assembled by the blowing of a horn, and the male portion stood pickctoutsidc the house and the female portion inside during the remainder of the night. 15ut nothing further occurred, until near sunrise the neit morning! Mrs. E. had sot a box of ashes outside tbe door, and was kindling a fire, when a stone came in, which she recognized as ono that she bad taken up with tho ashes. This continued with varied rapidity during the day, until- about 4 o'clock, p'. a. Several stones pasa- ed from within, out; but none of them could be seen until they bad struck. Oue of tho stones was very wet, and Mrs: E. held, it to ecc if water would drip from it, but it did not. The atones were such as are common to tho .country immediately arouud. They were not confined to any particular locality, but came from all directions to the house. About tea o'clock of tho second dav, a door in the dining' room flew violently open, striking a table that was behind it. Tho table tumbled out in ihe middle of the floor, legs up, in the opposite direction whence thu blow came, showing that it was not the result of a natural cause. A little whilo after this a large and very heavy dining table, occupying ita appropri- ate place, with a tablo cloth lying in the centre carefully folded, turned upside down ou the floor, the table cloth still retaining its central position underneath tbe table. The family and those who had assembled to witness these strange occurrences, were not alarmed. Mrs. E. at first attributed it to some malicious person, but was soon con- vinced that it was supernatural; and this is tho opinion entertained by all who witnessed' it. A vigilant guard was maintained all the 'time by the family, (5 in and a goodly number of neighbors." Such are the facts as related by persona of high moral and social position, and whoso tcstimory would be confidently relied upon in any ecclesiastical or civil courU Nevertheless they may ouly excite a ninilo of incredulity, or elicit tho response, "How But there are many things both in- tbe .natural and spiritual world, which our philosophy has never dreamed of. llcucc to bo 'silent in matters of this kind would bo infinitely more creditable to man'a intelligence nnd piety than a silly and' presumptuous attempt to ridicule what bo cannot comprehend nor csplain; remember- ing that "the Kcrcl tiling belong unto the, LordJmrGod; but those things which are revealed belong unto us, and to our children forever."
