M^BTBTJS A wag; of a fellow, who would joke at a funeral, seeing so much j-'olemness abr?ut the cholera at New (Means, told a very good anecdote, which spread a grin on every countenance, a d was no doubt, more benetic:ai to the sympathetic por tion of the "crowd ' than would have been a d??e of 44 d cior s stuff " "When the choleia made its appear ance," ?aid he, 44 in one of the Eastern cities, in 1832, a sanitary committee was appointed to vit,it each house iu the city, and enjoin cleanliness on the inhabitants In a da?k alley, iu one of the suburbs, they found an old Irish woman living in one room, which was not remarkable for cleanliness. The spokes'nau admonished the old lady that she should be more e'eanly, as sickness was approaching the city and she would be likely to be at tacked. " * Divil's the danger !' said the old lady; 'dhirt is ho ul some?it niver kilt half as many a* the divilish doctbixs.' 44 Just at this juncture a grunt, very much like the srun* of a pig. was heard to proceed trorn a corner in whi?h the old lady's bed stood, and the spokesman of the committee inquired what was un der the bed. 44 4 My pag!' said the old lady. 44 4 Your pig!' responded the commit tee. * 4 Yes, my pag.' 44 4 And don'tyou know,' ejaculated the committee, ' that if the cholera morbus comes here, and finds you in this tilthv coudiiion, and with a pig undei the bet;, that you will be one of its lirst sub jects V ?4 * Who's Curnel Maribos ?' responded the old lady, - that I should dhnve ou me pag for him I To the divil wfd yer Curnel Man bus ! asn't Gin'ral La fayette wid us, and me pag under the bed, and nobody disturbed him ? and isn'n he a betther man than Curnel Ma nbus V 44 4 Ah,' said the committee man, 4 you don't understand us It's the disease the sickness?we mean!' % 44 4 Don't throubleyersilvesaboat that,1 said the old lady, 4 lor it don't throubu me. And now, gintkuieu,' she cot. unucd,4 1 won't turn out me pag for yei disease, ner lor Curnel Manbas, ner foi yersilves? so yer may jist as well lav< me house ' 44 They did leave, and the old lad,? | kept her 4 pag. " OPIUK IHroXICATlOtf The confessions of Coleridge furnish us occasion for bringing >ut what ha. long lain in our convictions in regard to the retailing of opiates There can be found in every community, persons, mostly females, who have taken to the habitual use of morphine, laudanum or opium. Some have resorted to thets narcotics as a substitute for the intoxi eating cup. Others have formed the {taste while taking them to combat dis ease When a craving for the*e drugs is once established, it becomes as impe rious and engrossing as the appetite lor a strong diink. The wretchel wotua ; who becomes its victim goes to it under the same plea that the d? unkard does to his bottle. She must take it to work on, to sleep on, to beep awake with, to deaden pain, to quiet excitement, to screw her up for company, to make her herself. She can't live w'th'-ut it. As it 's not a soc al hut a solitary vice, the habit may be concealed for a long time Iroui the public; but as it gams strength it gets the mastery of sclf-respev t and decency, and the sallow visaged, ab&ent m;ud< d, maudlin, i?ath some object, publishes her own shame. She grows indolent, shiftless and drowsy She is a living mortification to her friends, and becomes remiss in almost every duty to her husband and children. She lives for opium and not for them ; and to ob tain that she will barter eggs, yarn, but ter, rags, anything of domestic merchan dize, and if these fail, will squander, if permitted, a large share of the earnings of her disheartened husband. Every country storekeeper and every village and city druggist knows customers to whom this description will apply. They are as truly dissipated as the drunkard, and the man who, knowing their habits, will supply them with opium, is as really doing wiong to them and their families as if he sold them rum. Public attention has not been called to this evil. The legislature has passed no en actment against it, and good men have thought very little about it, but we put it to the conscience of the merchant and the apothecary, that they are morally bound to r fuse to furnish such women the narcotic stimulants which are de stroying them, and bringing misery up on their kindred \\ e perceive, from articles in the En glish newspapers and reviews, that the practice of taking opium, in all its forms, especially that of laudanum, is alarm ingly on the increase. The victims to this drug in that country are mostly fe males.?jVormc/i Herald. C? hiousDviko Scb.^ks.?According to Fielding, Jonathan Wild picked the pock et ol he ordinary while he was exhort ing him in the cart, and went out of the world with the parson's cork-screw and thumb-bottle in his hand Petronius, who was master of the ceremonies and inventor of pleasures at the court of Nero, when he saw thnt elegant indul gence was giving place to coarse de bauchery, perceived at onoe that his term of favor had arrived, and it was time to die. He resolved, therefore, to anticipate the tyrant, and disrobe death of its paraphernalia of terror. Accord ingly he entered a warm bath and opened h:s veins, composed verses, jesting with his familiar associates and died off by insensible degrees.

A Ludicrous Scene. ? bout 3 o'clock on Wednesday morning officer Warkins, of the Fifth Ward, heard a rattle sprung in the vicinity of Fifth aud Spruce streets, and proceeding to the scene, was some what surprised to meet a man in an en tirely nude state, proceeding up the lat ter street, making a tcrrib e noise. The officer was under the impression that the man was laboring under the mania-a potu, but advancing towards him dis. <\>vered that he was pursuing a black fellow. The officer then gave cl.a-e after 1 he pursued man, and after a long chase succeeded in bringing the object of pur suit to in the vicinity of Washington square, catching him by the leg as he w is getting over a fence. After securing the prisoner, who pr -ved to be Samuel rhomas, the officer, convulsed with l^'ighte! at sctiug ih*. sorry plight iu^o by the nude man, in his pursuit of the prisoner, met the gent, and succeeded in b Trowing an overcoat from another of ficer, with which he was covered until h? could get home and procure his clothes At the hearing before Alder man Moore, at i 0 clock, the testimony of the nude man was taken, which showed thai he was a barkeeper a' the cellar corner of Fifth and Spruce streets, at which place he slept. lie was awak ened by a singular uoise and the tact of the place having been robbed a short time ago, induced him to tndeav< r to catch the burglar. Whether he stripped himself fir this purpose or slept entirely uated. deponent did not say; but it i.j certa a 1 hat when he emerged into 'he s'reet from a side d >or, in pursuit of the robbtr, he was in a nude state.

Thompson Conductor on th'* New York &, Erie Railroad relates to us the 'o!!ow ing: On Wednesday last the Dunkirk Ex press, drawn by engine 159 with Mr. Thompson, as Conductor, ar.d John Hull as E:igiueer, ran from Susquehanna to Hornillsrille, c distance of 112 miles, in precisely ihree hours and forty-four min utes ; or. deducting 36 minutes for stop ages, (20 of which were consumed at Os wegi) in three hours ard eigh' minutes, runniugtim.! Allowing als, for tin iost iu approaching and deparLn? from stations, and the >pe J of the tr - ^ could not b ive been less h*u a niii- t minute, or GO miles an hour. If this rate of speed over an equal extent of road, has ever been attained before in this country, we certainly never heard of it. The pas sengers on the train were of course per fectly delighted, and on arriving at Hor nellsville a deputation of their number waited upon th# Conductor and Engiueer and solicited them, in very strong terms to ruu the train through to Dunkirk, which, of course, they were obliged to decline ?Osrego Gazette. If the train had met with an accident and run off the track, those passengers would have been the first to hold a meet ing and resolve to have the Conductor hanged. The Deseret Alphabet ?Our readers are aware that the Mormons have adop ted an alphabet very similar to that known as the phonetic alpl ft'ct, by whirh the number of letters is greatly reduced, and a uniform sound always given to tho same character. It would appear from the following extract from Bro. Phelps' letter to the News that a commencement has been made towards introducing tho new alphabet in the schools:?Elder John B Milneris teaching Deseret alphabet with considerable sucoess, having sixty scholars at Lehi, twenty-eight at Ameri can Fork, twenty-five at Mountain ville, twenty-eight at Pleasant Grove, twenty two at Provo, first ward, who are ma king good progress.'' Such an alphabet will be of great a&sisiauce in enabling the many foreigners among the Mormons to acquire the English language.
