EVENING STAR. [From tb?' Button AUaa of April 4 J The Charge of the Paul Pry Brigade. Up stair* and d-?wn stair*, Through the b^u-e onward, In closet and clothes press peeped Not quite a hundred. Searching and peepinf, went Not quite a hundred ; ? With six committee men Ten ' them blundered "Forward !" ti.e chairman cries, " Se.?-cl> all the nunnertes, Onward, ye gallant fpies, Not quite a hundred!" " F irward, each Md Paul Pry, Courtesy, decency, With ui are all in 'your eye,' . - ; Who cares who blundered .' No one here dare* reply. No one but women mrh, Then rouse your courage high,' Into ?*ach corn-r ?pv. Ttiougli not quite a hundred." Ladies to right of them, L.adie? to left ?>l them, Ladies in front of them, Trrmbled an^J wondered; Nothing coul 1 tl.ey nppoM To the invading P?e-, Poanimg where'er they chose, frying w>t i eyed and nose, Not quiie a hundred. Opening closets hare, T?;s?!i".g the dresses there, Gi'lan had debonair, Fuuiblius at ro-tafx's, While la ies wondered Where such callants were bred; lain the chape' sped Heroes with hat on lfad ; PioiM he !rr? <limnk with dread, Not quite a hundred. Ladies to riaht of them, Ladies to left of them, La iin in front of them, Trrmbl^rf and wondered; What car. d these valiant men Th*s? nobly daring men ? Harmed U.em not lady's fear, llaruied ibem n >t lady'4 tear, Their *s was a minion high, Into each corner pry, Not qrite a hucdrc.?. When can their glory fade ! O, th" brave charge they made! Wbil? ladte? u-ond* red. II*?nor tli" charge ther made, Hosnr i'aul Pry * bti;i tde, , Not quite a Hundred! Jcoxomi.?A slight knowledge of hu' man nature will show, .says Mr. Colqu houn, that when a man gets on a little in the world, he is desirous of getting on a little further. Such is the growth ol provident habits, that it has been said that if a journeyman lays by the first fire shillings, his lbrtune is made. Mr. Wi'liam Il&il, whe has bestowed great attention on the state of the laboring poor, declares that he never knew an in stance of one who had saved money com iog to the parish. And he adds, more over, 44 those individuals who save mo ney are batter workmen ; if they do not do the work better, they behave better, and are more respectable ; and I would sooner have in my trade an hundred mcr who save money, than two hundred wh( spend every shilling they get. In pro portion as individuals save money, thei: morals improve ; they husband that lit tie, and there is a superior tone given t< their morals, and they behave better foi knowing they have a little stake in so ciety." u^Mayor Wood has received a lettei stating that the Commun?of Niederwye, in Switzerland ha3 sent 320 of their poor est inhabitants to the United States Upon a protest against their embarka tion, maeie by the Lniied States C'onsu at llavre, they were then provided witl $10 each, to show that they were no destitute, aud seut to New Orleans. IT'jfrs. Jane Richardson, of Asln county. North Carolina, has now livinj one hundred and seventy four children grand children, and great grand children Mrs. Richardson is the daughter of Capt Johh Cox, a distinguished officer in th revolutionary war. CIT^'Never be critical to the ladies,1 was tue maxim of an old Irish peer, re markabl# for his homage to the sex; "th only way a true gentleman ever will at temp to look at the faults of a pretty wo< is, to shut his eyes." CCT^The Galiipagos Guano has beer analyzed by Prof. Ilosford, of Harvard C ollege, who pronounces it among the most valuable o! guano deposits as it contains more ammonia than the best Peruvian specimens.
