Some years since n wealthy Carriage maker residing in Philadelphia was very much non need let a the daily Calls of Hack Man Kuhmen omnibus Drivers. &c., who under the pretence of wishing to Purchase would Pul him to considerable trouble in showing All the varieties he Hud on Imnel. Mid exp planning the different find very Low Price of each to icicle and then leave with the consoling word think on to and if they concluded to Purchase a Why they would Mil again but it so happened that i hey never called again the second time. The daily inquiry to say Imd become very annoying and the owner in self defence had resolved not to pay any attention to a customer unless he came w ii dressed. About this Lime the owner was one Day standing in the door of his sales room when up came a rough looking num. Well bundled up in u course overcoat wearing heavy unpolished boots Ami carrying in his hand u whip wlm thus accosted him a Day sir. Arc you the owner of this establishment v Well i Tun a replied the other with a look which seemed to s to now you want to try in done to you ? 1 Kaow you 1�?T have you any Fine carriages for Wile a inquired the Strung a apparently not heeding the of the other.

Fool me will you a and the owner commenced whistling. The next Day Canto and with it also the stronger. 1 live come according to Promise a said he. A i see you have sir a replied Tiu owner a Little abashed. _ i Quot ill Lff pc that Carriage sir a and to the astonishment of the other he polled out an old Wallet Well stuffed with Hills and deliberately counted out two Hundred dollars. The owner was completely staggered. Here was something new. A Cabman with so much Money 1 something was wrong certainly i lie took the Money. Looked at it and then at the stranger eyed hint from Bond to foot and even examined his Bools attentively. Then to counted the Money Over and held up Curli Hill to Tho Light to see if in went not counterfeit. No All Good. A thought struck him. Lie would Liti a out his name i 1 suppose you would like a receipt a said he at length to the stranger. It May be to a yes. Sir. What name a Washington a sir a said the other actually Starling Back with astonishment. Did you say your name was a Washington Irving a replied the other an no most imperceptible style hovering around his Mouth. A Wash Lri sir my dear sir a stammered the owner confusedly a in really sir beg ten thousand pardons sir but i mistook you for a Cabman sir i did indeed a 4 no excuse Friend replied Irving,4 i am no better than you took me Lor. You acted perfectly right a and having it length succeeded in getting his receipt and a Host of apologies he politely bade the Bumble Carriage maker 4good Day a and left Bint to the Chagrin Tomt he Ittel mistaken for a Cabman n Nunn who Hud commanded the admiration of the world. The Friend who related this anecdote asserted that it was n fact a and was told hint by the owner himself. It doubtless proved a lesson to him not to judge of men by their dress i far the Fujko Mafit. Í3 of . 1 sat me Down much wearied with the daily toils in which do st by had placed me in an ample Clair with arms benevolent and through their Charity 1 fell asleep when suddenly i was transported to a fairy land and seated beneath it Lovely Bower Over which suspended Hong vines Peculiar alone to the clinic in which they flourished and on bloomed Flowers whose fragrance was ethereal perfume inhaled on in atmosphere most heavenly. Methought a twas eve. And she was heightened by her full need Moon whose flowing rays to the brightness of Twilight added her wooing calmness As if to show the variety of iter charms so doubly delightful As they might he Felt and seen with n gentle thrill of rupture. The expression of gratitude from two most potent senses. And then music was wafted to my ear. Another Strain of Richer Melody. A third possessed of Talisman tic influence quite wrap my faculties and i reclined upon my bed of downy Moss. Overwhelmed by floods of Delight such Only As can be realized by those of a fairy world and which to me i fear Are not again reserved. The music ceased its Echo died away. I raised my eyes doubting the while whether a twas not a sacrilege and so beheld the Queen her majesty seated upon a Golden Barge and wafted upon a liquid Stream of Silver whose Waves reflected myriads of dazzling variations. Of either Side before behind sported a thousand seraph and Naids. Again she touched her Harp. And of her tapering fingers44 kissed the strings a so swiftly that the Eye of Man was lost in following them her Silken hair waved across her shoulders and floated to the Breeze. She passed gracefully by and slowly and soon was lost in Tho serpentine meandering of the Stream amid the Orange Groves. Loose sight of thee fair one thought i. Never i with this resolve trembling 1 arose to follow when a most copious Stream poured full into Tny face. Boo Hoo Hoo i i shouted As i strained my eyes and saw the Fountain hand or the Pitcher which Jimmy held and showered the Cooling draught All Over me. And now the sad reality appeared the enchanting Motsic which i had heard was one of the Young ones performing on the jews Harp the Bower the Sweet perfume the vines the Flowers the River the Imago. The Queen and retinue. Which i have Hore described was such As cute imagination taking one Uff guard can associate with readily upon the 1st of aran. P. My sirs. Editors a As the election of Council men for the coming year is at hand it is a very proper Lime to Call the attention of of r citizens to that subject. For unless the charter in effect be scrupulously maintained and faithfully curried out it is Idle to expect Public benefits therefrom. And How it May very properly be asked arc these to be secured but in the Wise and judicious selection of the individuals delegated for the performance of that important Trust ? although minor in some degree to that of the business of legislation still it is highly essential to the Prosperity of our City that every part of it should be properly attended to of Well by the Council ten and Sofii cars by them appointed As to receive its just proportion of Bat which May he proper and necessary to expend therein. Anything Short of this would be doing Manifest injustice to the citizens. In a word the individuals composing the cily Council should he of a Ehu Ractor whose Public acts would not subject them to just censure hut Ott the contrary that us thoughtful discreet and Wise to non they should consult and act together for the Public Good. Cannot such men be Luul ? this thing of individuals going about from year to year Boring Tho citizens tor their support or votes is not the Way by which Good officers will be had. In is High time therefore that this sinister this immodest practice to say the least of it should be exploded. Observer
