Jeremy s next sensation was that of an affectionate Caress from the lash of an immense horse whip. This was Tho first Appeal for Good behaviour to had received from his up. In four or five years. For a moment to looked savagely at the old gentleman Aud thought of his own superiority of strength but Fjon quelled his pugilistic desires and Down again to Tho narrator or rather to Tho advertisement that elated him. It a Call for agents. Ten dollars a Day guaranteed Etc. For particular of key co., to. 8 Village a venue a n. Y., Weie to be con Iii Tod. Tore Ray had always Bueti Fincel to Tho farm and feeling tired of it considered this a Chance for him to he resolved at once to give the n trial. He planted potatoes All the after noon keeping one or two rows ahead of his father and milked the cows As usual thut night but the next morning before Daylight lie was 011 the Wuy to Tho City. About noon of Tho same Day he entered Tho Village of smythe Vilc just Twenty five Miles from Home feeling tired hungry and a Hittle Dis Turbed in Roii Seijiu e. Jul this Condi Tion to called at Farmer Smythes where he procured dinner and an invitation to remain until Tho following morning and rest himself. His father and Farmer san the once went to school together Jeremy now profited by it. 13ut to hardly think to would Havo tarried so anxious was to to get to the City Only that Farmer smythe had three very pretty girls. Hep Talitua the oldest was 18, just a year younger than himself and so fast did their acquaint that he became Tho owner of a card bearing her name and address before they parted. Jeremy stowed it away in his left Vest pocket feeling that Tho donor was to suy Tho least in Angel and that he somehow or other had taken a leap into Paradise. Tho remainder of his journey was passed in a kind of delightful trance from which to did not thoroughly awake until he found himself in View of the City. Then his heart gave a great for to not hoop to know his destiny he never had been to Tho City before and Tho sights were so new nud startling that to was in a tremor of excitement by Tho Tiro to reached Tho indicated in Tho advertisement. He found Tho Avenue a dirty one a dilapidated Cone urn and the woman at the door Olvi Ryhti Gish appearance but to summoned courage to inquire if a Man living there who employed agents. She re plied that there and showed him into a Small shabbily furnished part input where an oily tongued old fellow informed him thai Tho Urti clo to to canvassed for was a grease extractor of the greatest Merit he considered it the most marvelous discovery of the age and Tho rapidity of its Sale was unprecedented agents were making fort Unes Tho article was put up in 5u-Ccnt bottles he would be pleased to furry h Jeremy with a few appoint Terri tory Etc. He charged half Price so their profits were Enn Mouv Jeremy told Tho old gentleman he would take but n dozen bottles us to lad not the Means for a larger invest ment. The territory to would decide upon before he left. The old gentle Man hinted to Jeremy that it might Boas Well for him to begin to canvass in some Small country is to was Well a Little verdant. Jeremy s Teni por Rose slightly but he Mado no reply for who wants to be told he is even if he knows heist after hinting this the old gentleman left Tho room to get the bottles in readiness for Jeremy. He had no sooner gone than a girl of 12 or 13 entered Tho room by another door. Coming close to Jeremy she whispered Aro you going to be an agent for grease Jeremy replied that he was intending to be. Well now if you will never Tell the old Mau nor woman i la Tell you where you can look through a Keyhole and see him prepare she said adding that she knew lie would not think it wrong when he knew the cheat there was about it. She then directed my to the door he could see the article pre pared. In the Frei place the professor snoring by called him took a bar of common bar soap immersed it in a pail of water Shook the pail and then filled corked and sealed the bottle. That said the Gii-1, he buys in quantities of a Sony maker in the country. It is Good soap for washing clothes but will no More remove grease spots than any other common soap. An agent never goes with it but once. But by advertising to makes fools of a Good Many and considerable Money out do you Tell everybody that comos newspaper the sumo you ivc linked Jeremy. No i Don t often get a she replied you see the old woman just went ont or i should not have got in Here. I mean to get away from them pretty soon As soon As i can get another place. They both drink and abuse me Jeremy did not Stop to hear More but took his hat and ran into the Street went at such a Pace until to was oat of sight of Tho House that a policeman on the Comer had a Groat notion of arresting him on suspicion of some crime. He never heard what the professor of the reuse extractor thought of his con duct. Pear Good Jeremy he Folt to was too honest a fellow to peddle soap suds at 50 cents a Hali pint bottle even if his dreams of wealth wore nil Dis Pelle a in a moment. He comae fell a Pang of disappointment Aud resolved to return Home again after making a tour of the City. So to wandered up and Down Tho streets looking into shop windows Aud up at Tho Gold lettered signs and placards till Sundown. Then he entered a bakery invested 4 couts biscuits which he speedily devoured and inquired for n place where he would be Apt to get a night s lodging. A snap pish woman behind the counter advised him to go to the Mout Roxe House across the. Proceeding thither he stalked into the doorway As he imagined a millionaire would had asked Tho clerk How much will a on ask to keep to Here a. Little Blick hit iced Dandy looking fellow whom Jeremy Al ready had his eyes on As a pickpocket or somebody of about that stamp stood by baying a How Etc. Jeremy stood it us Long us to could until the clerk told him his lodging would be 75 cents then turning upon the Dandy a disdainful look offered to lick him for just 2 cents. The clerk immediately informed Jeremy that no tight aug was allowed in Tho House but if to wished to indulge in that recreation to might As Well go to Tho Porter House just n Block away. Suddenly taking the hint Jeremy went As directed. Meeting at the door an object that he took either for the proprietor or a whisky barrel he abruptly inquired keep u fellow Here to night who is ready to Light any City Dandy who dares to insult him yes1 them s just the kind. Hore Jim show him Toio oni was the reply. In ten minutes Jeremy was in bed and asleep. Half an. Hour later he was awake and bade fair to remain no. An attack from those venomous injects vulgarly termed bed bugs re s quire his Wakeful attention. They were apparently of ii Mevious hat unless mid vigilant re inf were re sorted to Jeremy to must be annihilated. Thus he fought in go d Earnest. All night Long the siege lusted. The Slaughter was terrible. The number of the slain amounted to about us wording to Jeremy s estimate. The gory sheets were a sight to behold. Musing upon his Conquest in the morning Jeremy concluded to had Well earned his night s lodging. So he dressed himself crept softly Down the stairway whisked out the door and scampered Down Tho Street without settling his Bill. About 10 o clock Asho was saunter ing up Arlington Avenue a heavy hand grasped his shone it a u pair of Handcuffs were thrust of his wrists and a voice loud enough to arouse the seven sleepers exclaimed you Aro my prisoners must to replied Jeremy since n simple country lad like me cannot walk the streets without being perhaps it is More of an offence than you think to leave a hotel without paying your the officer replied marching Jeremy along to Tho lock up. After reaching that vile abode which appealed to to filled with profane Drunken wretches poor Jeremy began to think his father s potato Field was a More becoming place for him. But to compelled to remain Thero until the next Day when he was taken to the police court. The Case was the first on the docket and to Jeremy s great Relief shortly disposed of. After a Little Parley by Tho lawyers Tho prisoner was allowed to plead his own Case und Tho following was the sum. And tub stance of his speech gentlemen i suppose-1 committed a great mistake by not paying my Bill at Trio Porter House. But when i relate the sufferings i endured that night and you realize my hair breadth escape you must admit t am Tho aggrieved party. No Soldier on the Battle Field Ever fought for his info As i fought for mine Between the hours of 8 in the evening and g in the morning utterly Jinni Hilt Iii betwee Nizine Aud Teu thousand of the longest billed ravenous insects which country people innocently cull bed bugs that 1 Ever encountered. Of it was to hard night s work. I would rather have Hoed potatoes three Gays laughter Aud i thought i earned my night s lodging and that the proprietor of the hotel would think i did him a great favor. So i left the House As quietly As possible feeling i had done Niy duty hoping 1ho next weary traveler who occupied no. 26, would not meet with so Hearty a reception As fell to me. Gentlemen the affection those insects Manifest for Man kind is indeed marvelous and i find in my Case that their demonstrations Are very exhausting to one s everyone in the court room was convulsed with laughter As the Pris Oner now sat Down apparently from sheer weariness wiping his eyes with his coat sleeves. He was released by paying is and Cost which took Tho last Penny he had. In a few hours he left the City Shak ing the dust from his no. 11 Bovine hide boots convinced that the country was the place for him. The following night he in a barn twelve Miles from the City suffering much from the cravings of hunger and was hotly pursued the next morning about Daylight by the proprietress of the place with an uplifted Broom and the fiercest imprecations. She allowed no tramps on Hor premises Over night and the nest time to came that Way he had better not Call. Jeremy assured her he would not. We think to would have been quite disheartened at the continuance of ill Luck Only that he was but a Lew Miles from Farmer Smythes Paradise he hoped to reach even in his enfeebled condition at noon and to was not disappointed in his calculations. At 12 precisely that Day be dined off a luscious dish of Ham and eggs with the smythe family. To them he related the Story of his adventures in the City not even omitting the disagree Able details of his encounter at the Porter House incarceration at the lock up Etc. Inept Ali a was More affected and interested at the recital than either of the others and wept and laughed alternately her sympathies All with Jeremy. Well Jeremy you have found a Good Haven at last. I will be glad to have you with me As Long As you can Content yourself and will pay Yon for helping me on the farm my work being a Little this Farmer smythe said patting his Young Friend Oil the shoulder in a very Friendly Way. Jeremy said he would remain a week or two and then return Home As no doubt his parents were anxious about him. At Tho end of a month Jeremy started homeward with his great heart Over flowing with happiness. He and Hep Talina had made n contract for life. Just one month from then she would become his Bride. He was not Long walking the Twenty five Miles and As soon Asho was in sight of the old Homestead his father and Mother hastened to meet him and rain tears of Lovo on his Neek. Jeremy was reminded of the account Given of Tho prodigal Sou still was aware that their cases varied As he had not wasted much in riotous living. Nor was the fatted calf killed although the Joy of Toto so parents hearts wus Groat at Liia return for Jeremy had been a Good obedient boy and was All their dependence. Lie could not gather courage at first to Tell them of his engagement to Hep Ltd Iii but when he did to was fold by them both that the old House should to enlarged and that they would All live Aud die in Tho same place. Thus Jeremy resumed his labor on the old leaving it again to secure an Agency. After haying he brought Home his Bride Aud All went merry As a marriage 1mass. Napoleon and ti1k South.

He him to have an audience with the Damper of once to which or. Weed replied that or. Dayton would arrange one but probably could not effect it until after the meeting of the Chambers. Thi1 would be too late As Tho mischief that time would have been done. M. Lumbat volunteered to arrange Tho inter View and on Tho very next Day succeeded in procuring an audience for or. Weed with the count do morny. The result of that interview is thus stated by or. Weed upon my expressing the solicitude Felt to our minister or.

Do Jjo Ruy with considerable emphasis take int Franco a suffering so seriously for our civil War that Tho emperor would to compelled to refer to Tho subject in is address. I inquired i All warn of commercial nations did not necessarily More or less inconvenience neighbouring nations. To replied that our War waa an exceptional one that other nations wore dependent upon us for Cotton that our blockade and to destruction of the Charleston Harbor had deprived Europe of an article essential to its interests that Franco was a paternal govern ment and when it could Dot Fiir Nuh its people with labor was compelled to Supply them Wiki bread.

There is a Darkey in the third Ward who has a sow and eight very Small pigs. The Mother of the pigs was taken very sick the other Day and the pigs had to be Fedi the Darkey tried to feed them with a spoon but failed.

About two hours later a gentle Man irreproachable dressed goes into a tailor s shop across Tho Way from the pastry Cook s and asks to be shown some overcoats. He selects one of the nicest and asks the Price. One Hundred and Twenty five francs sir very Well. I will take it. I have some Money to collect at the confectioner s across the Way.

We passed through and Fields of Millet ten feet High und could not see us Rosa the country unless Whoie the Harvest was Cut. Tho stocks of Tho Large Millet looked like wigwams. We heard sad tidings of the famine yet Here there was abundance much that this one province could Supply All Tho famine stricken. A measure of Millet will support a chinaman for a month but there is no Enterprise about getting Tho Millet to the hungry and the port was soon to be closed by the Winter. There was always some one on Tho Road though the houses and villages were few. Now it was the postman with his mail bag Slung across his shoulders his hands swinging Vehe mently he went. Then it was trav Elers on horseback armed with Formida ble Spears with which to frighten not to tight the robbers that i infest the roads. Peasants were trudging to Market a. Farmer was going Over his land. Fig ures in White cume near the Road to watch and we knew it was a family in mourning. Some ladies crossed by a path Over tha Fields to pay a visit to a neighbor s House a servant followed them and they stole shy looks at the foreigners. Here the reapers were at work and if it was the arge Millet they Cut Down Only Ono Stook at a time and then bound them laboriously in Gigantic sheaves. A watch Man staff in hand was patrolling Tho Fields to guard his master s Grain against the inroads of the poor. There we saw a hard beaten circuit of ground the ears with Only a Short Straw spread Over them and a White and Lazy mule dragging a Stone round and round. Sometimes the Grain was lashed but never thrashed with the flail. Where roads met Thero Taos almost always a Small shrine of mud a few feet High raised to some local god a shabby superstition that contrasted with the comfortable look and intelligence of the people. A Puzzle for of Dituro geologists. A singular discovery was made Dur ing last year s dredging operations of the const Survey Steamer Jake in the Caribbean sea a discovery which should furnish a lesson of caution to geological observers Aud theorizes. While dredging to the Leeward of the Caribbean islands Largo accumulations of vegetable matter and of Laud debris were brought up from deep water Many Miles from Shore. It was net an uncommon thing to find at a depth of Over fathoms arid some ten or fifteen Miles from land masses of leaves pieces of Bamboo and of sugar Cane dead ind shells and other Laud debris which were undoubtedly All blown out to sea by the prevailing East Erly Trade winds and frequently masses of vegetation More or less waterlogged and ready to sink were found floating on the surface of the sea. The contents of some of Tho trawls would indeed have sorely puzzled a Pale oncologist if to had met them in a Fossil state amid deep water forms of fishes crabs Echi Noder rns sponges Etc., would to found Orange and Mango leaves mingled with branches of Bamboo and Nutmeg so that it would have been difficult to de cide whether the Marine or the Laud Fauna predominated. Such a find in a Fossil Deposit would probably Boex planned As having occurred in a shallow Estuary surrounded by forests. It is not without interest to observe that this Large amount of vegetable matter thus carried out to sea seems to have increased in certain localities the num Ber of Marine forms of life. A roman treasure. A Italy in the morning of the 1st of june a lad engaged in repairing the Drain of the House no. 23 Della Tell Cotta found a Little shiny piece of Metal and put it in his Pockel waiting for the Chance of showing it to so me connoisseur. In the meanwhile a Good Deal of the dirt from the Drain was a tired a Way in the direction of Porta angelic i. The lad had his piece examined by a Goldsmith opposite and he wus just receiving Twenty francs for it when the head Mason and the owner of the House who had heard somehow of the affair come to Stop the bargain at right moment. Search was made immediately on the spot and 142 Gold coins were found scattered be tween the Drain and the Walls of the House. Policemen were sent after the carts they overtook them just outside Porta Angelica examined the contents arid found forty two More coins to the great amazement of the Drivers who had no idea they were re moving Gold from such a unexpected Unne.

Orndorff was spending u sunday at Treadway a and happened to have with him a pet Bull dog which weighed forty five pounds. The old agriculturist on first seeing the dog remarked that dogs were Well enough in their place but cabbages were his weakness. To also said that he intended making some experiments with cabbages to see How Large a vegetable could be produced. J Cal Verlato to get my cabbages up to where they la to considered the had an said Orndorff that i can Breed a Bull dog Down to a look remarked Treadway pulling up a Fence Post and beginning to whittle it you be got a forty five Pound dog and i m Raisin seven and a half to Ted cabbages.

It was a recent arrival and on a sunday to went Down to Carson wit i it to show it to Farmer Treadway and claim the stakes. When he Yeshib ipod the dog the old Farmer weighed it on his Scales and remarked Good enough. Now look at my they went out into the Garden and the old Farmer pulled up a cabbage which weighed exactly forty five pounds. Or Dorli scratched his head in astonishment and said it beats Tho the old Farmer who had kept a rec Ord of his cabbage growing furnished a chronicle reporter with Tho following table of yearly growths l it year. 7v.

Mrs. Zimmei who from her childhood had taken the warm est interest in politics has told me that she used to lie awake at she was with her husband in Annapolis to think of the right Mau and at last thought of Vickers in the dead of night and suggested the name to her husband who considered Ita very Happy thought.

Vickers in time to cast his vote against impeachment and the Maryland legislature sat Day and night until he was elected and very skillful political diplomacy at last won the Clay.

Burke the the greatest men have been noted for the breadth of their sympathy. Everything even the most trivial seemed to interest them.

A most remarkable Accident happened at the Hale Norcross mine one night. A Cage with six men was coming up the Shaft at 11 hour for Chang ing the shifts. When about goo feet from the Bottom at a Point where there is an irregular place in the guides the Cage suddenly lurched to one Side throwing the men to the other.
