Don't vou here me ! Bla<?t that hammer ! Tub Dctch JrDOE ?A Dutchman who who settled in the far West became rich, and was in due course elected a judge. One day he was to sum up the evidence against a prisoner, and on look ing around for him, found him playing chequers with the sheriff, while the fore man of the j lry was fast asleep. Re plenish i ' Itc ample judicial chair Willi his person, he thus addressed the jury. "Mr. Voreman and t'other jurymans : Dcr prissoner, Hans Vlecker, is vinisheJ his game mit ter sheriff and has prat him. but I shall take gare he don't p(ot inc. Ilans has been tried for murder before you, and your must pring in der wardick, but it must be 1 cording' to dere law. Pe man he kil't wasn't kil't at all, as it was broved he is in der j^il at Morrisdowii for sheep stealing Put dat ish no matter. Dere law says Ten dere ish t'out you give 'eia to der bris oner: put here dere ish. no tou t; so you see ter der brisoner is guilty. Pe sides, he is a great loafer. 1 have knowtu him vifty year, and he hashn l tone a ? ditch of wark in all dat dimes; and dere ish no one debendmg upon him for deir livin', and he is no use to nopody. 1 dink it would pe good blans to hang Litn for de example. I dink, Mr. Yore mans, dat he better pe hung next Fourt' o* July, as dere militia is goin' to drain in another county, and dere would be no vun goin' on here I" it should be added, to the credit of the jury, that in spite of this learned an l impartial charge, they acquitted the prisoner, finding him 41 Not Guilty, if he would leave the State." ~SZ/?Oh, the smartness of American boys! they understand you before you are half done speaking. They see through you like a pane of glass, when you are iuiidly lying for the very best of motives, 'l hey drive a bargain with you before you make up your mind to trade or not trade. They write for the press at eleven or thirteen; edit a paper at fifteen; at twen ty, they are cashicrs of a bank, partners in a merchant's house, first mate of a ship, captains in the the volunteer regi ments, stump-oratore, political character, and aspirants to the presidency. ? i - ? ? ? At a meeting of the clergymen, not long since, a reverend gentleman by the name of Loss, of dimensions some what extended, presented himself. Says one of the brethren to him : 44 When you left your people you were a great Loss." 4- Yes,' said another, 4* but when he dies he will be no Loss. ' 44 Yes," says a third, 44 will be a dead Loss." Here the reverend gentlemen ceased, being at a loss. A*/" The new year poet of the Monroe Commercial is 44 some." Only listen to him: " As well old bachelor* and mauU Mi.'ht try to make a baby ?how, A* I, of all Uie printer lad-. To make a new year's address go." MOV LMENTS OF OCEAN STEAMER^ Sun*.
