FORMAL IWVITATIOWB The too-frequent habit of extending mere formal invitations is justly rebuked in the following story of Vivier, the ar tist* which we find in tht Parisian irossiD of the Musical World: ^ P Vivier, the celebrated and witty artist, recently passed some time in Paris, on his return from his summer travels. He had hardly arrived, when he was invited to dine with Mons. X , the musical amateur and rich capitalist. After the repast, the master and mistress of the house said to their guest: " We hope that we shall have you orten to dine with us; your plate will always be ready." *? Always ?" said Vivier, 44 that is, in the fashionable sense of the word." 44 By no means We are not persons of such hollow politeness. You know how much we love artists, and you in particular. Our home is yours. Come and dine with us whenever you please. W e should be very glad, if it were every day." 44 In earnest?" 44 Certainly, we should be much de lighted." "Ah, well, since you are so cordial, I promise you that I will do my best to be agreeable." 44 We shall depend, then, upon* seeing you." The next day, at six o'clock, Vivier, prervented himself. 44 You see.' said he, 44 that I have ta ken your invitation literally. I have come to dine." 44 Ah! it's very kind of you?it is very charming," said his hosts, to whom his arrival appeared to be proper, and quite original. The dinner was very gay, and the ar tist, on taking leave, received many com pliments The next day, just as they were about to set down to dinner, Vivier again ap peared. 44 Here I am, exact, punctual and faith ful to my promise. But it is singular," he continued, fixing a penetrating and quizzical look upon the faces of his hosts. " it is singular?you appear surprised? did you not expect me ?" 4'0h, certainly, you give us much plea sure," the Amphitryon replied, with a forced smile. 44 So much the better." Vivier sat down, was in his happiest vein, played the agreeable to all the fam ily, ana seemed unconscious that he had all the burden of entertaining, and that except a few monosyllables, the conversa tion was reduced to a mere monologue. On the fourth day, at six o'clock pre cisely, the obstinate guest once more pre sented himself. This time coldness and constraint were very perceptible, ano Vivier spoke of it. The mistress of the house replied stif fly, 41 It is only because we leared you would not fare well; we have so poor a dinrer to-day." 411 thought you expected me, but it is of no consequence. I am not particular. I wish only the pleasure of your socie ty." He seated himself with perfect com posure, ate heartily, then turning to Madame, with a complimentary air, he said: 44 What could you mean ? This din ner is quite as good as the others. Ex cellent fare! upon my word I gho 'Id desire nothing better. The next day?it was the fifth?Vivier arrived at usual. The porter met him at the door?41 Monsieur X is not at home. He dines down town to-day." 44 Ah ! very well! But I forgot my great coat yesterday ; I must ask the servant for it," and darting across the threshold and up the staircase, he knock ed. The door was opened. Unsuspected apparition ! 44 Your porter is a simpleton," said Vivier gaily. 44 He pretended that you had gone out. I knew that he was mis taken. But what long laces ! What a sombre and melancholy air! Has any thing happened ? Any accident, any misfortune ? Tell me, that I may offer my sympathies." All dinner-time th* witty artist con tinued and redoubled his entreaties that the supposed miafortune might be con fided to him. He complained of their reserve, and indulged himself in all sorts of conjectures and questions. 44 Have yoa loat money in specula tions ? missed an inheritance ? heard bad music ? received a visit from a trouble some bore ? Have jou been wounded in yonr affection* f in yoor fortune? in your ambitiaa 1" Then, at tha dessert, bursting into a fit of langhtar, he said: 441 know what is the matter, and what troubles yoa. It is your invitation, so cordially made, and so literally accepted. I thought tkat I would make the trial, suspecting that you would not endure me long. To-day, you shut the door against me; and to-morrow, if I should return, you would throw mc out of the window. But you will not catch me here. I wish you good evening." Eocextbioitt.?It is a common mis take that greatness is allied to eccentri city. Hence it is imagined vainly that eccentricity implies greatness. Where upon certain poetasters and others of that ilk affect certain queernesses of dress or demeanor to draw attention to them selves by what they consider the costumc genius. Not content with being little poets, they seem to be ambitious of be coming little puppets.

They are extremely saluta ry before the fever kindles or the milk ia spilled; but in the presence of pain, or on the advent of a disaster, to all but those who are gifted with fortitude by nature, or have been disciplined in the school of affliction, they are about as ef fectual as whistlisg in the teeth of a nor' wester. Their utter impotence in a storm of passion, reminds us of the directions given by a good New England deaoon to his choleric son: "Whenever you feel your dander ris ing,' said he, "be sure to say the Lord's prayer, my son, or else the alphabet clean through; and long before you get to end on't you'll be as cool as a cucumber, or an iceberg. Promise me faithfully, my son." "Yes, daddy, I promise." Off trodged Jonathan to school, carry ing his bread and meat, with a small bittle of molasses in his jacket pocket, and his late firm promise uppermost m his mind. A boy, who bore him an old grudge, met him, and after calling him the ?young deacon," and many otber scur rilous nicknames, caught him ofi his guard, and ihrew him to the ground, tear ing his jacket and breaking his molasses b >ttle. Up jumped Jonathan, his eyes wolfish, and his lips white with rage. But 'there was an oath in Heaven," and be did not forget it. So he proceeded to swallow his alphabetical pills?an antidote to wrath not mentioned in the 'Regimen Salernitanum,' nor recognised by the British College " "A, B, C?jrou've tored my jacket!? D, E, F?you've spilt my 'lai>8ee!?G, H, I, J.

And with that, Jonathan, whose pas sion had been mounting alphabetically throughout all his father's prescription of vowels and consonants, caught the young scapegrace, and throwing him down, was proceeding to work ofl each of the beacon s twenty-six anti-irascible pills in the shape of a dozen hearty fi-ticuffs had not the timely approach of a pas senger interrupted the manipulations. So much for rules to oontrol the passions.? Knickerbocker. A Judge's Mcstakd Bath.?Two or three days ago, a young friend who has recently been spending some time in Georgia, related to us an anecdote, which shows how thoroughly scared the people of the interior of Georgia were aunng the prevalence of the yellow fever in Savan nah. It seemed that Judge R , ef the su preme court of that fetate, was up in the country at the time, but within twenty - four hour's run by rail of the terrible disease. Quite suddenly, late one after noon, he was seised with head ache, pain iu his back and limbs, Ac. Having heard that these were the salutations Yellow Jack extended to his victims on approaching them, the Judge, in great oonsternation, applied to a friend who was 'posted' for advice, A hot musuird balk was urgently advised, and being prepared, the Judge was soon laving him self with the irritating fluid. Presently he felt better, and finding a cake of soap in the vessel of water, he began to apply it freely upon his person. Alter quite a pleasaut exercise in this way, he looked down upon his body and limbs, and dts covered that he was turning black! Oh, horrors! His friend was hurriedly sent for, came, and dec1 ared that the symptom was intensely expressive of yellow fever. "but," said the Judge, shivering the while, "I feel no pain, I feel well!" "So much the worse: the absence of pain is a marked symptom." ?'Good heavens! ' the Judge ejaculated, "irhat shall I do?" ??The only hope is in the mustard, rub away," was all the censoiation his friend could give. _ . And rub he did with a will. He used the soap to open every possible pore, and after some minutes sent for a candle (for the twilight was fading,) to ascer tain his exact cuticular condition. On examination, he was as black as a erow, and the soap, which a careless servant had dropped into the tub was discovered to be somebody's 'Patent Paste Blacking.' We only add that the Judge survived. Montgomery Mail.
