THE 8T&AWBE1RY BOY. The following simple and unvarnished ?or7 ??tncUy true. It is given as a horticultural item, to illustrate the pro. grew m early life of a young horticul tunst in that particular branch of in dustry : Fourteen years ago last May, on Sat urday at noon, a boy called at'my dwell ing house to sell Rtrawberries. He was of a slender form, apparently aboM four teen yeys of age, with a bright and in telligent countenance. The fruit was beautiful and tempting, but I had bought I enough at market in the morning for dinner and for tea, and refused to buy any more. He observed that his straw berries had just been picked from tue vines, and would keep for the ^nday. I My wife was much pleased with his gin j tie and pleasant manners, and decided at once to purchase, and to engage a daily j supply from him for the season. Upon | inquiry, we learned, that, with his father and young brother, he cultivated vege tables and fruits to sell in the Cincinnati market, on a small place near Newport Kentucky; and that he had a taste for horticulture and books, and that no effort I was spared to improve his knowledge in both. In summer he tilled the soil?in I winter the mind. i1 or three years we were regularly I supplied by this boy, from the earliest to the latest period of the season, with I strawberries freshly gathered, of fine I quality, and at moderate prices ; he then I supplied us with raspberries in succes-1 sion. I The fourth year we missed him " on I his accustomed round;" and feared that! we should see him no more. My wife I felt a good deal disappointed and worried I about it. He was so iatelligent and obliging, so I gentle and engaging in his manners, that she had taken a great fancy to him. I Besides all this, where could we supply I our table with such fine strawberries I brought daily to the house? Various inquiries were made for him, but notb- I ing could be heard of him, Nie only knew his Christian name; the other, ifI she had ever heard it, had cscaped her memory. She recollected to h&ve ob-1 served an occasional hectic flush on his I cheek, and feared that the fell destroyer, consumption, had marked him for its own. Poor boy! she said, we shall never see him again. Years had passed away, and we had ceased to speak of him, whetf one day a young man of genteel appearance called at my store, and, presenting his hand, asked if I remembered him. In the hur ry and bustle of business life one forms so many acquaintances that it is not easy to recollect names and faces. I answered that I did not. He replied that when a I boy he used to supply us with straw ber ries, and he then inquired kindly for mv I wife and children. J y He stated, that by diligence in his hor ticultural pursuits he had saved some money, and was then interested in a small store in a neighboring town. I was de lighted to see him, and to hear of his prosperity, and gave him a cordial invi tation to my house, but he pleaded want I of time, and departed. On reaching I home in the evening, my wife was I much pleased to hear that her young l friend, the "Strawberry Boy," was living [ and well, but felt rather slighted at his not calling to see her. Two years ago, when I saw him again, ' he was comparatively rich, worth some $60,000 ; had married the daughter of a late distinguished lawyer, and had pur chased and was then residing in his fine I mansion in one of the citie* opposite our own. Occupied in business of public [ trust and responsibility, he lives respec-1 ted and esteemed by all his neighbors. He is well known to many of our citi-1 zens of Cincinnati. With all this pros perity, he has the good sense to remem-1 ber that he was once the " little Straw berry Boy," and no doubt he feels proud er of being the architect of his own for-1 tune, from that foundation, than if he had inherited ten times as much from his ancestors.?Horticulturist.

Novel Concert between a Mors* ^ Canary Bird.?^"Rara Avis " in the Boston Traveler, gives the following account of a concert between a canarv bird and a mouse, which took place on the evening of the 19th of January. He wys? *? *a? still in my room, on the above-mentioned evening, mv atten tion was attracted by a sound within the walls exactly resembling the chirp of a young canary. This awoke my canarv who answered it from hi* perch. The chirp was repeated, and the bird replied. A regular bird conrersation followed each answering in tune, the unseer sing er increasing in loudness and clearness till the canary was clearly thrown into song, and imitating him in his trills and warbling, just about as closely as a youn* canary would imitate an old one. At this moment a regiment of rats, who seemed to have been collected round the spot made a stampede, and the invisible sing er was silenced for the night "My first thought was to refer this in tramural singing to a canary heard through the walls, but inquiring at the next door and finding that no canary was kept there, and hardly supposing that one oould exist between the walls, I was obliged to yield to the opinion of a lady prucDt, that it was a musical mouse she citing an instanceof the kind which had come to her knowledge in the family of a physician of this city, in which, after many attempts, the m>is tniisicus was cap tured* Only one other supposition ct iij be indulged, aud the improhabi? ct.* that the rats had earned off a hvc ry, and kept in confinement to eniov his song."

Tester day a man came into the Recorder's of fice and stated that he had been lookinr for this woman for more than three! months, and had only that morning heard by accident that she was in the) Work-House. He stated that some time since Mary Ann's grandmother died in Lngland, and left her a legacy of fourteen j hundred pounds sterling Nothing bad been heard of Mary Ann for a long time I before the death of her grandmother, and the executors wrote to this friend, em powering him to ascertain, if possible, her whereabouts, or if she was dead to send an an authenticated certificate of the fact. Upon this statement, and the promise to take her out of the city as soon as possi ble, the Recorder released her from the Work-House and sent her on her way re aring like one with a pocket full of rocks.
