"Sir?" "Do you see that sail now?" 44 Ay, ay, Sir." "What does she look like ?" " She looks very large, sir.

J ins invitation was of course immedi uiattly accepted, and the Captain went ?' where the first officer of the Ma cedonia, as had been previously arranged, acted the part of steward by placio<* upon the table wine and such other re freshments as the larder of the vessel at the time offered. Ihea the two skippers sat down to the table and after pledging each other in a friendly glass of wine, entered in aoi imated but general conversation, in the course of which the Englishman ani madverted at considerable length and with much warmth, upon the proceed ? obtain privateersman com manded by ore Townsend, who he sol emnly averred was a regular Yankee devil.

A HKW BDLLBT IXTBACTOR It is said that an instrument has beet constructed in England which promisea to dispense with much of the difficultiea and suffering attendant upon the pracess of extracting bullets from wounds. There aro excellent opportunities in the Crime? for proving its usefulness, and we may therefore, presume tha. its merits, or its want of them, will bo established irnrne diately. The following is a description of the instrument: The contrivance consists of a small air pump and cylinder, to which a Up is af T /i, th* ,UP is *l^hed a suitable length of flexible tubing about a quarter of an inch in diameter, lined inside with silver wire to prevent its collapsing. At the other end of this tube there is a small g.obe, from which a tube sufficiently minute to pass into a bullet wound is fixed, the end terminating with an India rubber collar. On the top of the globe there is a small tap, in order to permit a probe to pass down the tube, to sound when on the bullet. The mode of oper * ing is tLis: A vacuum is created in tha cylinder, the tube before alluded to ia passed into the wound, and when it ia ascertained to be on the ball the tap in the cylm-ier i* opened, when the bullel ??"omes fixed to the tube by the vacuum thus created, and is thus withdrawn. The great merit of this invention con sists in its obviating the necessity for tha paiaful and dangerous operation of cut ting out bullets, and by its means a med ical man, with the aid of an assistant to work out the air-pump, would be able to accomplish the work which now occupies many surgeons. W hen the cylinder ia once exhausted, it would extract several bullets without the necessity of again jerking the air-pump. The Medieel ooard has given directions to an eminent instrument maker to fix up an appara tus. Old but Goon ?A fellow who came oo the railroad on \\ ednesday evening, being a stranger, strolled about for some time in search of a barber. He finally discov ered one, and requested the operator to take off a shilling's worth of hair. Tha barbei trimmed his locks very neatly, soaped up the remainder very handsome ly, and then combed him up till the head looked as if it belonged to some other man. ?Are you done? 'asked the stranger, as the barber removed the napkin from his neck. "Yes, sir," said the barber with a po lite bow. ?'Are you certain that you took off a shilling's worth? ' Yes, sir; there s tha glass; you look for yourself.'* "Well," said the stranger, -*if yo* think you have got a shilling's worth off, I don t know as I've got any use for it, and I havn t got no change, so you may just take the hair for your trouble." On hearing this the barber made a iumn for the man. r The Art or bbikg Agreeable?The true art of being agreeable, is to appear well pleased with all the company, and rather to seem entertained with them, than to bring entertainment to them. 1 man thus disposed, perhaps, may net have much learning, nor any wit, but if be has common sense, and something friendly in his behaviour, it conciliates men's minds more than tha brightest parts without this disposition; and when a man of such a turn comes to old age, he is almost sure to be treated with re^ spect. It is true, indeed, that weabould not dissemble when in company: but a man may be very agreeable, strictly con sistent with truth and sincerity, by a prudent silence where he cannot concur, and a pleasing assent where ha can. Now and then you may meet with a per son so exactly formed to please, that ha will gain upon every one that hears o? beholds him; this disposition is not mere ly the gift of nature, but frequently tba effect of much knowledge of tha world, and a command over the pagniAnfi, Slanderer.?A person of whom tha Greeks showed a deep appreciation, when they made the word synonymous with evil. Slanderers are at all events econ omical, for they make a little scandal go a great way, and rarely open their mouths except at the expense of other people. We must allow that they have a good excuse for being defamatory, ifitbetheit object to bring down others to their own level. [TT^Charles J. Rich, of New Albion, N.
