There in an aged colored woman iu a Western town who does not believe in social equality, judging from the way she talked to her boy: “ Eprebam, eonte byar to ycr mndder, boy.

There was the usual conglom eration of passengers in the cabin just before the boat landed; and amid the general hubbub of conversation a man re marked incidentally: “Now. in Jersey, where I live —” Instantly an old man, who sat moodily and silently pondering over the stove for some time, sprang to his feet and ex claimed : “ Stranger, arS you from Jersey ?” “ Yes." _ “And willin’ to acknowledge it ?" “ Yes, sir; proud on’t.” “ Hurrah ! Give us your hand !" cried the old roan, fairly dancing with exulta tion. “I’m from New Jersey, too; but I never felt like declaring itarore. Shake ! I'm an old man. I’ve travelled long and far. I've been in every city in the West; stoamboated on the Ohio and Mississippi, been to California, over the plains, and around the Horn; took a voyage once to Liverpool; —but, in all my travels, hong me if this ain't the first time I ever heard a man acknowledge that he kum from New Jersey." ItKORUANiZJNU him Wivx.—“l never attempted to reorganise my wife but once," confessed Artemus Ward/ “I shall never attempt to do it again. I'd been to a pub lic dinner, and had allowed myself to be betrayed into drinkin’ several people's healths; and wishin’ to make 'em as ro bust as possible. I continued to drink their healths until my own was affected. Con sekence was, I presented myself to Betsy 's bedside late at night with considerable linker concealed about my person. I had somehow got possession of a hoss-whip on my way home, and rememberin' some cranky observation of Mrs. Ward's in the i roomin', I snapper! the whip pretty lively, and in a very loud voice, I said : “Betsy. 1 yon need reorganisin'/' “ I have come, Betsy," I continued, crackin' the whip I over the bed, “I have come to reorganise . you." I dreamed that night that some body laid a hoes-whip aerosa me several I tiroes and when I woke up I found she i had. I hain't drank much of anything since : and if I ever have another reor ganizin' job on hand, I shall let it out." OwLIOTNn,—A traveler coming up from the Central depot, says the Detroit Free stopped fee a moment to examine a cont hanging in front of a clothing store. The proprietor rushed out and asked : “ Wouldn't you like to try on some coals ?” “ I dnnnu but I would," responded the traveler, consulting his time-killer, and he went in and began work. No matter how often he found his fit, he called for more coots, and after he had tried on about thirty, he looked at his watch, agairf re suming his own garment, and walked off, saying: “I won t charge a cent for what J'va done; hang a man who won't oblige another when he can do it! If I'm ever around this way again, and. you've got any more coots to try on, I’ll do all I can to help yon!" Home questions very naturally suggest themselves to sn inquiring mind.

A young man who prided himself on hia mental qualifications, once speaking of the advantages of these, remarked: “What is better than a good education ?” “Com mon sense, you fool." quickly responded one of his hearers. In a late funeral discourse it was jmtheti cally remarked that the deceased “had gone to his rest, where the cares of this world couldn't follow him, and where he wouldii t rare and rant? about taxes any wore."

This beautiful little fish, now tha‘t it forms n staple article of trade, is engaging the attention of the savant* who were a long time at ftalt in arriving at even an approximate knowledge of so-called Ameri can sardines. Packed with olive oil iu tin cans, divested of their heads, and other wise disguised by the preserving process, it was difficult to trace correctly the genus and particular variety whence this delicate morceau comes. U often happens that where science ia at fault (he world is indebted to accident, or to crude ideas emanating from obscure sonnies for the ultimo tknie of its labors. In this instance, where the pisciculturists have been at fault, the comparatively obscure fisherman has stepped in with his homely knowledge and at once dispelled all existing doubts on the subject. It appears that the fish known as tho American sardine, put up for market in hermetically sealed cans, are a fish commonly designated by pro fessional fishermen, ocean trout. (7Vio Oceana.) belonging to the genus Salmi fonHnalit, very much resembling, and supposed to be identical with, the silver, or sea trout, \ trntta marina, j These fish are shaped like the brook trout, and are similar iu all facial peculiarities, except that a brownish black takes the place of the Vermillion dots peculiar to the latter. As all salt water trout come under the bead of “Trutta Marina," we cannot con ceive why the term “Oceana" is affixed, j except it b* to distinguish this particular variety from the silver or sea trout. It certainly is not a technical term, nor can it be found in any treatise on fishes. Large schools of these fish, varying from | 3 to 6 inches in length, migrate in the Spring of the year from the ocean to the estuaries of bays and rivers in the Canadian Dominions, and the Eastern and Northern States, as far South as Long Island, where they are taken in fine seines in large num bers from the latter part of April to the early part of November. The sardine proper is a species of the herring genus. They are said to abound in large schools on our coasts, are taken in considerable quantities on the coasts of Algarve in Portugal, Andalusia, and Granada in Spain, and also along the shores of Italy. The small sardines caught on the coast of Provence in France are esteemed the heat for preaerving. From one thousand to fifteen hundred fishing smacks are engaged in catching these on the coast of Brittany, from the middle of May to the middle of October. The vast proportions of this trade may be readily understood when it is known that the im portatiou of sardines into the United States alone in 1870 amounted to 133,000 kilogrammes. Actuated by the growing importance of this trade, and the value of the fish as a commodity, a few enterprising gentlemen of this city conceived the idea of canning our American fish fur market, preserved in the same manner as the French, and. by affording them at a less price, eventually l supercede the foreign article in our home ‘ markets. The first step toward this eud , was to erect a factory somewhere ou our line of coast, and commence the work of experimenting with various small fry. Accordingly in the early part of 1870 a suitable site was procured, and the nccea aary buildings erected, at Port Monmouth. N. J. Here, after some time consumed in testing their experiments, the Trittn Octana was selected as the most available for the purpose intended, and this was done at the instance of an experienced old fish- I erman, whose services have since been retained. It was at this period the com ; pany was formed now known as the | American Sardine Company. The busi | ness, at first conducted on a comparatively \ small scale, has quadrupled itself in the | short space of three years. The demand , for these fish has gradually become so extensive that the works of the company now cover an acre of ground, and give employment to over one hundred men. Thus has an important American industry . grown np in oar midst, with every promise of abundant success. The canned fish known as the American sardine affords a delicious fish for the table, anil is regarded by epicures as quite as good as and far more delicate than the imported sardine. Turf Field and Farm. Tide* of the Chesapeake. This subject is one of far greater import | anee than many lemons imagine. The average rise and tall of the tides is about I four feet Spring tides rise about five I feet and six inches above a dead low water. It is ebb tide at Cape Henry when the moon rises or sets, it is always high tide at York Spit, and Cherrystone Inlet, at that | time or within twenty minutes of it. It i is always low tide at Hooper Straits at I the same time rising or setting of the j moon. High tide at Sandy Point at the moon rising or setting, and low water at Chesapeake City fifteen minutes before the moon rise* or sets. The flood tide runs at a given point on the Chesapeake bay five hours and fifty-six minutes. The ebb tide runs at the same place about seven boom, and the slack tide is of about twenty-nine minates duration ; near the head of tide water however, where there ia little cur rent setting out, the flood tide runs lunger than the ebb. In the Wicomico, five miles from Salisbury, the flood tide runs nine minutes longer on an average than the ebb tide. There are always two ebb tides and two flood tides moving in tho Chesapeake Bay , at the same time, and sometimes three of ■ one or the other. The same flood tide i runs from the capes to the head of lide • water in every tributary of the bay. But ' no ebb tide runs farther than sixty miles > at the same time. sailing vessel entering tho Ches apeake bay at the beginning of flood tide 1 1 with a strong fair wind, will carry with her 1 ! the same tide to Baltimore. 1 1 A vessel beating up tho Bay with a ■ ; head wind will carry the flood tide nine 1 | hours if she is a good sailer, while one I beating down the bay will carry the ebb about four hoars and a half if she is a |. good sailer, the faster she works down the bay the shorter time she will have fair ■ tide. While going up the bay it is ' reversed. i A vessel going down the bay with a j fair wind from Baltimore will generally I meet three flood tides, and sometimes ; four. But if site is a good sailer with a | fair wind she can go all the way up with i one flood tide, and not encounter a single j head tide from the capes to Baltimore.— i Stdithm-j/ Adixrtiter.

THE abject of this auit is to procure a divorce a cincaUt matrimonii ou the part of the complainant from the defendant, and the care and caatody of their child.

U. 1870, a female child was bom whose name Is Ella U —that said child is now and ! has been since her birth supported by the complainant, that during said marriage the defendant has not contributed to the support of the complainant or their said child, that her said husband abandoned her in the month of February, A. D. 1870, and that said aban donment tins continued uninterruptedly for more than three years, and is delilwrate' and final, and beyond any reasonable expectation of reconciliation, that the defendant the said Edward 8. Saubie doth not reside within the limit* of the Stole of Maryland, and is beyond the jurisdiction of this Court, and when last informed he resided in the Stole of Kansas. The complainant then prays that she msy he divorced u rinenio matrimonii from the de fendant, and that she may he awarded the care and custody of their said child, and for general relief, and also prays for an order of publication against the non resident defen dant. •j It is thereupon this l&th day of May, A.
