At Dewitz, in the neighborhood of j Prague, there once lived a rich and whimsical old farmer, who had a beau | tiful daughter. The students of Prague, ■ of whom there wereat that time twen ty five thousand, often walked in the direction of Dewitz, and more than one of them offered to follow the plow in hope of becoming the son-in-law of ; the farmer. The first condition that ■ the cunning peasant set on each new j servant was this: "Engage you," he ' would say, "for a year, that is, till cuckoo signs the return of spring; but if, from now till then, you say once that you are not satisfied, I will cut off the end of your nose. I give you the ' same right over me," he added, laugh ing. And he did as he said. Prague was full of students with the end of their noses glued on, which did not prevent an ugly scar, and, still less, bad jokes. To return from the farm disfigured and ridiculed was well cal culated to cool the warmest passion. A young man by the name of Coran da, somewhat ungainly in manner, but cool, adroit and cunning, (which are no bad aids in making one's for tune,) took it in his head to try the ad venture. The fanner received him with his usual good nature, and, the bargain made, sent him to the field to work. At b. eakfast time the other ser vants were called, but good care was taken to forget Coranda. At dinner it was the same.—Coranda gave himself no trouble about it. He went back to the house, and while the farmer's wife was feeding the chickens,unhooked an enormous ham from the kitchen raft ers, took a huge loaf from the cupboard, j and went back to the fields to dine and I take a nap. "Are you not satisfied?" cried the farmer, when he returned at night. "Perfectly satisfied," said Coranda. "J have dined better than you have." At that instant the farmer's wife came rushing in, crying that her ham was gone. Coranda laughed, and the farmer turned pale. "Are you not satisfied?" asked Co randa. "A ham is only a ham," answered his master. "Such a trifle does not j trouble me." But after that time he took good care not to leave the student fasting. Sunday came. The farmer and his wife seated themselves in the wagon to go to church, saying to CorandA, "It is your business to cook the dinner. Cut up the piece of meat you see yonder, with onions, carrots, leeks and parsley, i and boil them all together in the great I pot over the kitchen fire." "Very well," answered Coranda. There was a little pet dog at the farm j house by thename of Parsley. Coran da killed him, skinned him, cut him uj> with the meat and vegetables, and put the whole to boil over the kitchen fire. When the farmer's wife return ed she called her favorite, but alas! she saw nothing buta bloody skin hang ing by the window. "What have you done?" said she to Coranda. "What you ordered me, mistress. I have boiled the meat, onions, carrots and leek, and parsley in the bargain." "Wicked wretch !" cried the farmer, "had you the heart to kill the innocent creature that was the joy of our house?" "Are you not satisfied?" said Coran da, taking his knife from his pocket. "I did not say that," returned the farmer. "A dead dog is nothing but a dead dog." But he sighetl A few days after the farmer and his wife went to market. Fearing their terrible servant, they said to him, "Stay at home and do exactly whit you see others do." "Very well," said Coranda. There was an old shed in the yard, the roof of which was falling to pieces. The carpenters came to repiir it, and began as usual, by tearing down the roof. Coranda took a ladderind moun ted the roof of the house, vliieh was quite new. Shingles, lath, nails and tiles, he tore off everything, and scat tered them all to the winds. When the farmer returned, the house was o pen to the sky. "Villain,"said he, "whit new trick have you played me?" "I have obeyed you, caster," an swered Coranda. "You Did me to do exactly what I saw others d>. Are you not satisfied?" And he took out his knife "Satisfied!" returned the farmer; "why should I not be satisfied? A few shingles more or less, will not rtiinme!" But he sighed. Night came, the farmer andhis wife said to each other that it was high time to get rid of this incarnate demon. As is always the ease with sensible people, they never did anything without con sulting their daughter, it beingthe cus tom in Bohemia to think that children always have more wit thsn their pa rents. "Father," said Helen, 'I will hide in the great pear treeearly in the morn ing, and call like the cuckoc. You can tell Coranda that the year 3 up, since the cuckoo is singing. Pay him, and send him away." Early in the morning th plaintive ' cry of the cuckoo was heart through out the fields. The farmer seemed sur prised. "Well, my boy, spring is come" said he. "Do you hear the cuckoo singing yonder? I will pay ydu and BEDFORD, PA., FRIDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 22, 1867. we will part good friends." "Acuckoo!" said Coranda, "that is i a bird which I have always wanted to t see." He ran to the tree and shook it with all his might, when behold! a young girl fell from Ihe branches fortunately more frightened than hurt. "Villain !" cried the farmer. "Are you not satisfied ?" said Coran i da, opening his knife. "Wretch !"you kill my daughterand : think that 1 ought to be satisfied !—I am furious. Begone, if you would not I die by my hand." "I will go when I cutoff your nose!" said Coranda. "I have kept my word, do you keep yours?" "Stop!" cried the farmer putting his hand before his face; "you will surely ! let me rede m my nose?" "It depends on what you offer," said I Coranda. i "Will you take ten sheep for it, Co ! randa?" "No; I would rather cut off your I nose." And he sharpened his knife on I the door-step. ' "Father," said Helen, the fault was mine; it belongs to me to repair it. Coranda, will you take my hand instead of my father's nose?" "I make one condition," said the jyounggirl. "We will make the same j bargain'; the first of us that is not sat | isfied after marriage shall have their j nose cut off by the other." "Good," said Coranda, "I would rather it was the tongue; but that will come next."

Never was a finer wedding seen at Prague, and never was there a happier household. Coranda and the beautiful Helen were a model. The husband and wife were never heard to complain of each other; they loved with drawn swords, and thanks to their ingenious bargain, they kept lor long years both their love and their noses. HAYS lIKEITMAX ON A TRAIN. ■"Hansßreitman" issupposed to have been one of the invited and well-treated guests on the Pacific Railroad excur sion—and his experience is thus "nara ted" by "Mace Sloper": "Hans Breitman vent to Kansas, he dravel fast und far. He rided shoost drei dousand miles all in von railroat car. He knowed foost rate how far he goed—he gounted all de vile. Dere vash shoost von pottle of champagne dat bopped at efery mile. ."Hans Breitman vent to Kansas; I dell you vot, my boy. You bet dey hat a pully dimes in crossin Illinoy.

Some beobli sh runs de buetiful, some works philosophic; der Breit mann solfe de infinide ash von eternal shpree." A CLEAR case of "domestic infelicity" was witnessed by a friend a few days ago in a passenger car in which he was traveling. The wife and two children occupied one seat, while the husband sat directly opposite, across the passage way. Little "Johnny" was very ob servant and talkative, and made many remarks in a very loud tone of voice. The father finally grew impatient, and requested Johnny to "make less noise;" whereupon the partner of his "jaws" turned upon him theeonqueringglance of her flashing eye, and exclaimed: "Now, you just shut your mouth— you're played out." The meek hus band subsided and the passengers tit tered. Ol'R NEW GOVERNOR. 1 How lie Preache* and how he Practice*. In his inaugural, John W. Geary, j the Governor elect of Pennsylvania, j made a special point of the uses and a j buses of the pardoning power. He ! promised great care and circumspec tion in the exercise of this prerogative jof the Executive. Shortly afterwards ! he caused to be published, over his own : signature, the following regulations concerning the issue of pardons which j he promised "shall he strictly enfor j ced,' viz: First —No pardon will be grantee! Un ! til notice of the application therefor ' shall have been given by publication | once a week for two consecutive weeks I in a newspaper printed in the county i in which the conviction was had. Second —No pardon will be granted j unless notice of the application shall ! have been given to the judge who tri • ed the cause, to the district attorney, or !to the attorney who prosecuted; proof •of which notice shall be furnished this department. Third —All applications for pardon must have with them the following pa pers written in a clear and distinct hand: 1. A certified copy of the whole rec ord, including docket entries, minutes of court, copy of indictment, pleas, and all other papers on file in the court re lating to the case. 2. A full statement of the reasons up on which the application is based, set ting forth all the facts ; the notes of ev idence taken on trial; letters from re sponsible persons in the community where the crime was committed; a recommendation from the jurors who sat on the trial, and if any of them re fuse to recommend a pardon, reasons given for such refusal; letter from the district attorney or counsel who tried the case, and a letter from the judge setting forth his views upon ttyasub ject of the application. * Fourth —Recommendations for par don for unexpired terms of sentence must have a copy of the whole record as before required. Also a copy of I commitment; petition from prisoner setting forth reasons and statemen from warden and inspectors of pris ons. Fifth —No personal applications will be permitted. Sixth —All the above papers, when submitted, must be accompanied by a printed copy of the same in pamphlet form, twelve copies of which at least must be sent to this department. If the parties are too poor the paper-book need not be printed. Simple minded people believed these rules would be observed, and many of the abuses that had heretofore been con nected with the exercise of the par doning power, avoided. But those who were acquainted with the vacillating character of our new Governor were not deceived by his professions. He was the first to violate his own regulations, and the manner in which it was done is refreshing to the lovers of consistency and honest dealing, viz : Jonathan Bieber, a Judge of Elec tions in Berks county, was recently tried in that county for misdemeanor, in having refused to receive the vote of Samuel Reinert, an alleged deserter, at the October election, and on trial was convicted. The fact was laid be fore the Governor by thepolitical friends of the prisoner, and when he was call ed up for sentence, his attorney pre sented to the court a full and free pardon from Gov. Geary; and Mr. Bei-1 ber was accordingly liberated. He exacted none of the testimony j which he declared to be necessary be- j fore the issue of a pardon, and which j he had laid down in the above regula- j tions. He violates good faith to shield j a partizan friend from punishment, j and treats the decision of the Supreme Court with contempt. With this instance of Punic faith at i the beginning of his administration, I what have we the-right to expect be- j fore its close?— Doylestown Dent. A JEWISH DIVORCE. As it is somewhat interesting to know i what the ceremony consists of we give j it as enacted after judicial decision had; been given. It was as follows: The wife, dressed in black, with a j black veil over her face, appeared with ' her husband before a council of ten j men, members ofthe synagogue. There were also three rabbis, one of acted as a petitioner, and wrote out on parchment a petition in Hebrew, ask ing for a divorce; the second acted as a respondent, or the defendant, and the third as a kind of judge, the council of | ten acting as a jury. The man and wife j having appeared, they stood side by j side before the ouncil. The rabbi and council then took an oath all shaking j hands—the oath being to the effect that! they would always consider the divorce legal and binding. The wife then re moved her veil, and the rabbi who act ed as petitioner read the petition in German, and stated the case to the council, who having heard it, decreed the divorce. The decree folded up, was handed to the husband and the wife raising her open hands, the hus band, dropped the paper into them. The rabbi who acted as judge, then took it and cut the end like a fring. He then handed it to the president of the synagogue, telling him to place it among the records of the society, to be preserved as evidence of the divorce. This having been done, the ceremony was finished, and the parties departed, ntxfonger m!a!n and wtft*. VOL. 61—WHOLE No. 5,381. RADICAL LOVE FOR SOLDIERS. Private Miles O'Reiley,General Ilal pine of New York, writing to his paper from Washington City, says: The Senate, in its eagerness toslaugh l ter Mr. Johnson's proteges, is making a ; mighty bad record for itself with re | gard to "Our Boys who Wore the i Blue." It has rejected scores of noble and deserving soldiers for no other rea son than that their names had been ! sent in for various places by the Presi dent—as if, because Sfr. Johnson may | be wrong in some points, his sins were i possessed of so foul a contagion as to blast and sully the brightest record of men who did gallant service during the war. Take the case of young Ma jor Howe, formerly of the "Bloody Sixth Massachusetts," and for years a confidential and trusted staff officer of Maj-Gen. Sedgwick; yet even he, when sent in for Collector of the Eighth Mas sachusetts District, is rejected! So also with Gen. Pratt, of Brooklyn, who trav els round at this writing with a minie ball somewhere hidden in his neck, and whose record cannot be surpassed. So likewise with Gen. Eagan; and so on with nearly two score of faithful and patriotic appointees, distinguished graduates of the army, who have been kicked by the Senate offtheladder upon which Mr. Johnson strove to place their feet. A full record of these rejections is now being prepared by Mr. Hanseombe, of the Republican —the personal and army history of each officer being given after his name; and when this shall come to be published and used oratori cally as a campaign document, it cer tainly will do the reverse of good to the Radicals as represented in the Senate—the reverse of injury to the President. SKETCH OF THE NEW HEAD CEN TER.—General Gleason, the successor of Stephens, is a young Irishman, remark able for his tall stature. He is about six feet six inches in height, slightly stooped, and has just entered on his twenty-eighth year. He was born in Fishmoy, near Boirisoleigh, in the county of Tipperary, and from hisearly youth was connected with the insurrec tionary movements in his native coun try. In the year 1860, during the Ital ian war, he raised a company of one hundred and nine men to defend the Papal dominions, and was complimen ted for his bravery in action by General Lamoriciere. Subsequently he was ta ken prisoner at the siege of Ancona by the Sardinian troops, and released after a captivity of six months. He then re turned to Ireland, and on the day he arrived in his native town thesheriff of the county dispossessed him of his es tate, his lease having expired. Subse quently he came to New York, and at the beginning of the war joined the Sixty-ninth regiment, and participated in forty-two general engagements of that organization. On his return he oined the Fenian Brotherhood, and went back to Ireland on a special mis sion; but while there he was arrested for treason, and lodged in Mountjoy Prison, Dublin, where he wasincarcer ated six months. He came back to New York immediately after his release and was a prominent member of the Brotherhood up to the moment of his appointment as its chief. During his career in the Army of the Potomac, as an officer of the Sixty ninth regiment, he received the rank of brevet brigadier-general. WHAT THE ARMY THINKS OF IM PEACHMENT. —Gen. Halpine, Private Miles O'Reily, writes from Washing ton to liis paper as follows, and we commend what he says to the especial attention of the military editor of the Express: Vs to army opinion here, I am very sure that it is opposed to the impeach ment scheme, and on this point cannot well be mistaken, for I have conversed with half a dozen of the leading lights in the worldofshoulderstraps. Grant, Sheridan, Sherman and Thomas have been unusually demonstrative of late in paying respect to the President; and while it is possible that one of these (but not probable) may be carrying water on both shoulders, I have pretty absolute certainty that the three oth ers are opposed to Uncle Thad's con tinued persecution of our Chief Magis trate, regarding such action as at war with national dignity, dangerous to the peace of the country, and not called for by necessity, political or moral, of a gravity to justify so extreme a course. ETERNlTY.— "Eternity has no gray hairs!" The flowers hide, the heart withers, man grovVs old and dies; the world lies down in the sepulchre of a ges, but time writes no wrinkles on the brow of eternity. Eternity! Stupen dous thought! The ever present, un born, underlying, but undying—the endless chain, compassing the destinies of the universe. Earth has its beau ties, but time shrouds them for the grave; its honors, they are but as the gilded sepulchres, its possessions, they are but types of changing fortune; its pleasures, they are but bursting bub bles. Not so in the untried bourne. In the dwelling of the Almighty, can come no footsteps of decay. Its days will know nodarkening—eternal splen dors forbid the approach of night. Its foundations will never fail: they are fresh from the eternal throne. Its glo ry will never wane, for there is the ev er present God. Its harmonies will never cease, exhaustless love supplies ifcegoßg. "YANKEES."— We have received the following: "The question has often been asked me: "what is the origin of the word Yankee." Pleasetell an old subscriber. J. H. M. There has been a good deal of dispute about this. It is certain that the term was used first by the native Indians, and applied exclusively to the white eolonists of New England. From the beginning the Indians used it to desig nate tlie white men that would lie to them, and cheat them, as distinguished from other white men, who were friend ly and truthful towards them. The fancy has been entertained that it was a corruption of" York men," but this is answered by the ascertained fact that the Indians used the term before what is now New York ever fell into Eng lish hands.—The most rational answer is that Yankee is the Indian corruption of AngUxise, the French for English. The French byway of explaining to the Indians why some white men were such rogues and liars, and cheated the poor Indians so, told them these were ll Anglaise " or "English." As this was the common character of the Puritans, the Indians took to calling them Ang laise, corrupted to "Yankees," meaning "lying, cheating, stealing, meddling white men." The name has been con tinued, and the race, unfortunately, though now, in rapid process of extinc tion, is still very troublesome.— N. Y. Freeman's Journal. A SERIOUS QUESTION.— At the close of a lecture on physiology before an evening school not long since, the lec turer remarked that any one was at lib erty to ask questions upon the subject, and he would answer them as far as he was able. A young lady with much apparent sincerity, remarked that she had a question to ask, though she was not certain that it was a proper ques tion—she would, however, venture to ask it. It was as follows: "If one hen lays an egg, and another sits on it and hatches out a chicken, which hen is mother of the chicken?" The lecturer said: "1 will answer you in the Yankee style by asking you a question: If a little pretty, white, genteel, native pul let sits on an egg of Oriental extraction, and hatches a great homely, splinter, shanked, slab sided, awkward gaited Shanghai, would you, if you were a pullet, own the great homely mon ster ?" "No, 1 wouldn't," said the lady. "Very well," said the lecturer, "that settles the question, for it is a principle in physiology that hens think and act alike in allessenti^^ BOYS—A WORD TO PARENTS.— Keep your boy a boy while he is a boy; a manly boy; a well behaved polite boy; a courageous, self-reliant; no milk-sop boy tied to his mother's skirts, but still a boy, not a weakling fop, a precious snob, a conceited monkey, aping the airs and acquiring the habits of grown up dandies and fast characters. Don't make a self-indulgent small gentleman of him. Teach him to wait upon and take care of himself, and to respect his inferiors and treat them courteously and kindly. .Pray save him from the absurdity of a cane and kid gloves, and garments that are suitable for down right heartyplay. It may bepretty and aristocratic and a sign of your opulence to dress him in the height of fashion ; but in so doing you run the risk of spoiling him for any robust and useful living. DON'T STAND STILL. —If you do you will be run over. Motion, action, pro gress—these are the words which now fill the vault of heaven with their stirring demands, and make humani ty's heart pulsate with a stronger bound. Advance, or stand aside;do not block up the way and hinder the career of others; there is too much to do now to allow of inacation anywhere or in any one. There is something for all to do j the world is becoming more and more known; wider in magnitude; closer in interest; more loving and eventful than the old. Not in deeds of daring, not in the. ensanguined field, not in chains and terrors, not in blood and tears, and gloom, but in the leap ing, vivifying, exhilarating impulses of a better birth of the soul. Reader, are you doing your part in this work ? CREAM IN COLD WEATHER.— For some reason not yet known, cream skimmed from milk in cold weather does not come to butter, when churned, so quickly as that from the same cow in warm weather. Perhaps the pellicles which form the little sacks of butter in the cream, are thicker and tougher. There is one method of obviating this trouble in a great degree. Set the pan of milk on the stove, or in some warm place,as soon as strained, and let it remain until quite warm —some say, until a bubble or two rises, or until a scum of cream begins to form on the surface. A RAPID HORSE.—A gentleman ri ding a very ordinary looking horse, asked a negro whom he met how far it was to a neighboring town, whither he was going. The negro, looking at the animal under the rider with a broad grin of contempt, replied, "Wi' dat ar hoss, massa, it's jist fo'teen miles. Wi' a good chunk ob a hoss, seben miles; but if you jist had Massa Jim my's hoss!—Gosh! you're dar now!" "* of my existence, give me said a young printer to his sweetheart.
