K V\ NITO STAR. Local Intelligence. Watch Stcffiso ?Toward the close of last week en* of oar oitisens. Mr Kamsden Peee while walking briskly for the benefl; 0f his Health?a median* he finds to be more ser viceable than the pills, lotions, and powders of *he apo heoary?was brought to a belt by a wspectably dressed person and of go'd *d Sharper Ne I. He produced from his pocket a watch, apparently *?ld ."J'ng " Lxcu^e me, sir; hereV a fine time keeper.very valuable. indeed. I hare been suddenly called upon tj leave the-city on business; bnt having expended my aoiey it watch Yoc bare ^ m h"Ddredu *Bd tw?nty dull an?for 1 k gc shook hia head Celling him He bad no Money, and coald not therefore pur chase it. sharper No. 1 insisted on a business transaction, but at this point without avail, bo Sharper No 1 left Mr Pegg. the latter re-. suming bis journej and walking swiftiy, as if to compensate for lost time He had proceeded Dut a few rods when he was again interrupted , by an individual, doabtless the confederate of the man with "the elegant timekeeper." Said Sharper No. 2, " What did that maa [re ferring to No. 1J say to you?what did he want f" Mr Pegg replied, " He wanted to ?ell me a watch for eighty, and then fell te, seventy, and sixty dollars " " I've seen the watch," replied No 2; "it's a magnifsent article I should have bought it myself if I had had the funds Good day, sir." Having tamed, while in the act of departing, he re marked, "if you should buy the watch, and repent your bargain. just cfell <*n me at my office ?mentioning that he was to be found at aplaoe whieh he was particular in designating. *"? ? *8?' the third time, resumed his journej, almost in a trot; but he was soon brought to a standstill by his first interrup ter. No. 1. " I ve come again?nobody seems to have any money ; my case is absolutely ur gent , I most be off this afternoon. It wants but a few minutes of the time for the cars to ?iart. See what a nioe watch it is "?turning it over and opening it to show the inner work ings. " But I told you before I haven't the money." ? How much have you aaked No 1. " Only nine dol.ars."' was the reply. "Haven't you a silver watch?" Mr Pegg takes one from his pocket. " It looks like a tolerably good one, added No. 1. Now give me the nine dollars and your watch for mine." ' Agreed!" exclaimed Mr. Pegg; and thus the bargain r?*soonaummated No. 1 hastened toward the depui! Mr. Pegg subsequently called on a watchmaker, and seriously a?ked him whit it was worth. The watchmaker,! casting a glance ? the article, informed him thit it was worthless?that the article was scarcely, if ai all, worth as much as old cop j*r Mr Peg;; hurried out in great distnay, either to overtake the one swindier at the cars, or to find the other at his office? which locality, of course only existed in the imagination. Failing in his purposes, he returned te the watchmaker, saying mournfully, " but might not the watch be gold"' The persot ad dressed, again assured him that it was o" no value; but in further response to his impor tunities. eomforted the victim by saying it was worth probably a dollar and a half ! Alas' From this hurried narration we should learn that " all that glitters U not gold " Look to yoce Grass Plats and Gardens. This is the season when our fellow-oi tiroes of Washington. Georgetown and Alexandria saould commence improving every square foot of ground on their premises not occupied by buildings or pavement A plat fen feet squ-re, merely enriched by shading a foe', deep, ma nuring and sowing upon it lawn grass seed, will in a very little time become from its ap pearauce a comfort if not a luxury to a family without ether \ogetation about them. If ded icated to the purpose of a flower garden, and care be taken to enrich it greatlv and plant it for a succession of flewers it will afford much more than enough of those so delightful ad juncts of the family circle If used as a gar. dee for culinary purposes, and properly culti vated, it will go far toward lurnishing the spring and summer esculents required in a family of three or four peraons. Half a oity lot so appropriated and properly attended to,! by nialf sn hour s "t entionin the morning and evening from two or three persons, male and lemale. will produce nearly all the vegetables that a family of half a doien persons can pos sibly consume. John Saul, at the corner of Seventh and H streets, attends to the laying out and other preparation of such grounds and gariens. We know that he is a first rate hand at the business, and charges moderately. We advise every householder in Washington who has ten feet square of ground that ho can de vote to some such purpose, to be sure to do so, as he will thus add to his comfort and health, as well as to his income, if be appropriates it to raising Vegetables; for he will then have lees to buy.
