I'm thinking just now of Nobody,
And all that Nobody's done,
For I've a passion for Nobody
That Xobody else would own ;
I bear the name of Nobody,
For from Nobody I sprung;
And I sing the praise of Xobody,
As Xubody mine has sung.
In life's young morning Xobody
To me was tender and dear ;
And my cradle was rocked by Nobody,
And Nobody was ever neaf ;
I was petted and praised by Xobody,
And Xobody brought me up ;
And when I was hungry, Xobody
Gave me to dine or to sup.
I went to school to Xobody,
And Xobody taught me to read ;
I played in the street with Xobody
And to Xobody ever gave heed;
I rconuned my t-ilo to Xobody,
For Nobody was willing to hear;
And my heart It clung to Xobody,
And Xobody shed A tear.
And when I grew older, Xobody
Gave me a helping turn ;
And by the good aid of Xobody
I began my living in earn;
And hence I courted Nobody,
And said Xobody'a I'd be,
And asked to marry Xobody,
And Xobody married me.
Thus I trudged along with Xobody,
And Xobody cheers my life,
And I have a love for Xobody
Which Xobody has for his wife.
So here's a health to Xobody,
For " Nobody's now in town,"
And I've a passion for Xobody
That Xobody else would own.
A Startling; Adventure.
In the summer of 1855, 1 was traveling
on business in the western part of Tennes
see. That purt of the Slnto which lies be
tween the Tennessee and MiifMssipi line
was ut that time a wild, dreary forest.
No roadi nothing but horse paths through
the woods, and the only marks to guide
the truvtler upon his journey were the
blazes" and notions" upon the trees. I
was dressed in the true back-woods fash
ion, and I rode a fiery mustang, with a
mane and tail as white as snow, a beau-
if il arch neck, and an eye like an eagle.
Ie was a perfect beauty, and as lleet as
the wind. Across his back I had thrown
a pair of saddle lugs, continuing on one
side a dozen "pones" of corn brt ad and a
piece of bacon, and to tallance thetn there
was a "pile of rocks in the other end in
the shape of two thousand dollars in gold,
which 1 hud collected and was transport
ing them to a bank in Kentucky, lo be di
posed of for eastern exchange. Two
arge wooden stirrups hung dangling from
my saddle, and the holster in front con
tained two beauties, in the shape of enor
mous pistol. Over these, to keep them
dry, was the sqirrel-skin covers
I had been riding for several hours,
swimming the rivers that crossod my path,
snuffing in the rich perfume of the forest
flowers, watching the squirrels playing
about in the tree tops, and listening tothj
music which issued from the throats of the
thousand urigni wingeu songsters im
which the woods abound. I hud not seen
. . .
soltary human being since morning, and
uight was rapidly approaching; indeed, it
had already begun lo grow dark, and I
made up mind that I would have to camp

to select some good place, when I wa:
startled by the neighing of a horse aheid
of me, and 1 presently saw two men ap j
proachmg me on horseback. I bey were
rough looking fellows, dressed m hunting
shins, and with squirrel skin caps on their
heads. I did not like their looks, and un -

Two years after the incident jiiht noted,
took place, I whs traveling down the Mis-
itmsippi on an old folnoneU bout, when my
nhention was attracted to an individual on

but where I could not tell. I was deter

not call to mind where wo hnd met nnd
under what circumstances. At last I found
an opportunity take a pood looknt him, na
lie was sealed on un old barrel head ear
neslly engaged in a game of "seven up."
I stepped up and perceived that two fin-

game progressed, until nn exciting mo

And the wretch ntlempted to draw

Maize, or Indian corn, originated in
America, and is not yet, we think, cultiva
ted to any extent on the European conti
nent. 1 hough the people of l real Britain
cannot be made to appreciate its merits
very fully; the aggregate exports of corn
in )8'6, in the form of whole grain, meal,
corn starch, farina, etc.,' amounted to be
tween seven end eight millions dollars, or
about one fortieth of the whole exports of
the whole country, and 6,700,000 bushels,
considerably moro than half, went to Eng
Corn has always been an important ar
ticle in this country, both of consumption
and export. The total amount of this pro
duce exported in 1770, was 678,349 bush-
el; in 17'Jl, L0U1,IM bushels, of which
3- 1,095 were Indian meal. The value of
corn and its manufactures exported from
the United S ates iu 1S30. was $o97,110-,
in 183.'5,$1.217,rG.; in 110. $1,043,516;
in 1S15, &1.0-53,!y3; in 1SJ0, 164,6.32,804.
The export increases more rapidly than
the production. Tho export of corn quad
rupled between 1S10 ami 1J0, while the
production did not quite double.
The great amount of invention bestowed
on corn planters, corn cutters, shelter, cob
grinders, etc., tend each year to promote
the increase of production It has been
estimated that, as a general rule, seven
ponnds of corn will produce one pound of
pork; that in localities where through dis
tance from market or from transportation
.a s a .
cereal cannot oe raised at a
form of diet, and on which, consequently,
the frieght is less.
An Anaconda, fifteen feet long, which
was landed iu Philadelphia, some weeks
ago, and taken to tho residence of
u a ship captaiu, escaped from custody and
was found in a cellar half a square off.
It was heard before seen in the cellar.
and thought to be a dog. A policeman
- 1 went into the cellar and the snake em
; braced him, but the owner of the reptile
being sent for, relieved tlie officer from
I rhe coils of lhe nvwtcr.
