At length, Tor the six'h tim, Ai dubon called on Astor for bis thousand dollars. A a he was ushered into the presence, be found William B Astor the son i converting with. his father. No sooner did the rich mu see the man of art, tb;m be began ; "Ah, M. Audubon, so you have come again after your money. Hard limes, M. Audubon ,' money vsrv scarce." . But just then, catching an enquiring look from his son, he chang ed bis ti ne, 'However, 11. Audubon. I suppose we mut con'rive to let yu hive om of your money, if possible.

A Moment of IlOrror, ' Tor twenty-three yeara old Jake Will-rd had cultivated the soil in Baldwin Couilt. and dfawn therefrom support for him ielf and wife. He U childless. lNot loi g sgo, Jake wetl in search ot a m'usirg t)ow. lli route Ud hhn through sn old wo'B-oul patch of clsy land, ol about six acres in ex ten', m til centre of which was a well, twenty-five or lhirlT feet deep, that at some time, probably bud fur iiisbed the inmates of a dtlapidaird hou near by with water. In pasting oy mis spot an in wina arirted Jake s i ile" form Ins bead, and maliciously wauc'I u to tne edge or the well and in it tumbled. Now Jak had always practised th virtue economy, HBO he immediately ei uum rfcoTenng 'ne lost nat. ile ran Id the well, and finding it was dry at tie bottom1 lie uncoiled the rope wbicli lie hod bronchi for the purpose or cBp'nniitf the ttn.nt cow, and After fcveral altempta io eatcb the hat with a nooae, be concluded to save time by going down into the well himself.

The devil himself, rr some other wicked spirit, put it inio Ned's cra nium to have a lilt 'e fun : so be quiet ly slipped up to the old horse, unbuc kled the strati, and approaibed with slow atd measured "ting a-ling to the edge of the well. "Daog the old blind horse 1" said Juke, "he's enmin this way, sure, and aint got no more sense nor to fall in here.

' A joke bf this kind waa la tely perpetrated in a neighboring town, A boy who was rather '-verdant went to learn the printing business, and one of the journeymen, loving sport, sent him one day with a dih to a certain editor, to borrow "a gill of editorial." The editor, understanding the game, returpe l a picture of a donkey. The first one finding himself rather "come over," set his wits to work to think how be should be even with thh o'hor. At last he c l'ed the lad and told him to go and tell the editor that "it wa edi'orial which he wanted, and not tbe editor!" .

Stunner. . - ; A Reminiscence. This gallant officer' lately Ihe com pamon of Mr. Lincoln in his journey to Washington, is devoid of fear, ' 11 does not know, indeed, what the word means. He was born to thut sort of thing ; and his speciality through life has been killing Indian on the fron tier. We rememder an instance illustra tive of this quality in Col Sumner. In the summer of 1855 he was sent to Europe on a special mission connected wiih tbe War department, and made at tbe same time bearer of Dispathes to our Legation at Madrid, by Gov. Marcy, our then Secretary of State. Col. Sumner a dispatches referred to the Black Warrior affair, and Col. Summer proceeded at once to deliver them to Mr. Boule, our minister.' . Tbe Col. waa presented, of course, to the Queen of Spain, and suid some handsome things to her Majesty, which Mr. Soule'a ready wit and oily tongne made .ery sparkling in the translation from EKgH81 t0 Spanish. The Queen was stiuck. We would not be deemed extravagant by these knowing tho parties, and remember ing the tall, handsome person and sol dierly addrOes, and the susceptibility of Her Majesty, to ssy the Queen was tmitlen. , ; That snme afternoon the Col. recei ved a poliie note from her Majesty, inviting him to a little supper, in ibe gardens of the Palace, to which only her intimate friends and associates were admitted. ' , ' u Ah ! Ibis la a compliment a high honor," said Mr.Soule.' Well, air," responded tbe Col., "at what hour precisely shall I go!" "But you will not go," said Mr. Boule. Why not?' These Spaniards are very much excited about this Cuban business; J hate us Americans, and if you go near the Palace after tight, yoo will be watched, I ollowed and assassinated. I dare not do such a thing." ' Mr.Soule," responded Col. PW ner, with tmphasis, "wAsn a pretty woman invites me Jo a tujper, I go, atsasination or no attautination. : The Col. was i'S g od as his word At th proper lime he, lucked his awnnl under his arm, and drove a- way.
