'Lodging under Difficulties.
Knowing that you like to keep pos
'tad on nil matters of vital importance,
X transmit y-:u the following rich ex
perience in the life of one of our so
Called anmple men :'
' '. Arriving late one nigh, daring the
(ast sumrcer' at the goodly city of A
abama, tired and exhausted, he hast
ened to bia lotel, and, os a particular
favor, he requested good, comforlle
and convenient quarters, which he
was promised he should have- The
polite clerk, after attending to the
wants of the numerous guest, started
our . iriend" with an attendant, in
search of his room, which provatl to
be up many flights of stair, through
long and winding passngeways going
lrom one wing to another trnd from
right to. left, till our hero arrived at
No. 107. He occupied but little time
over his evening devotions. lie re'.i
eed at once, but not to sleep. . Not
for him was "Tired Nature's restorer,
balmy sleep.". . .
The truth must be told, startling as
It is the bags were too -numerous,
too strong and voracious to permit
. him to rest in peace. ' So, resuming
his garments, he made for (he office,
in no very amiable frme of mind, and
addressing the clerk, the following
eomversation ensued :
Stranger Say I have you a good
strong porter about the house ?
Clerk(eagerly) Yes, we have the
strongest oae in the State.
S ranger Is he intelligent ?
Clerk-V-Ob" yes quite intelligent
for a porter, we think.
Stranger Qoe point ; more. , Do
you consider him fearless that is,
bold and courageous ? - ' '
Clerk As for that matter. I know
he is , he would not be afraid of the
d 1 himself.
Stranger Now, 11 r. Clerk, if your
porter is intelligent enough to find
107, fearless enough to enter, and is
. strong enongh to get my trunk away
from the bed-bugs, I would like to
have him bring it down.
, Teaching a Fop. .
j It does now and then happen that
scoffers, who seek amusement by po
king sly fun at the members of the In
stitute of France, come off second best,
in the encounter. An instance cf this
fact occurred the other evening at a
social reunion in the aristocratic fau
bourg, .at which a mixed company
were present, and among the rest a
well-known savant. Thinkiog to ex
pose the old gentleman to ridicule,
without in the least compromising
himself, aa - impudent young coxcomb
approached the academician, wi'h an
air of preti nded respect, and, in the
bearing of savetal Udies snd gentle
men, to ; propound a grammatical
!3h, certainly," said the old Rft
tleman, cood-humourediyi "1 will do
the best I can to satisfy your curios
ity." - - ''
Then, sir," returned ths fop, would
yott pleas to tell me which of these
two expressions is the more alegant,
?tw me some water or, Bring me
some water? " ' ' i"-
MYVby,' returned the academician,
with an imperceptible twinkle in the
eye;l should say that in your cas,
. a mora appropriate phrase than either
would be", Ltad me to water I' "
