"Capital!" was the in stant reply, "you are just the girl I've been looking for theso five years?will you marry me ? Newark Paid Fire Department.?'The an nual report of the Chief Engineer of the Fire Department of Newark, IT J., furnishes a thorough and substantial proof of the wisdom of abolishing the volunteer system and substi tuting the paid department. The reorganisa tion was at fir.'t opposed upon the ground of the entire inefficiency of the new system, and from prejudices created in a great degree by those who were uuworthy of belonging to any organization ; but as-it* workings were elearly seen it gradually drew into it the great body of efficient firemen who had constituted the strength of the old department. So successful has been its operation, not only in extinguish ing fires, but, what is far better, in prsvemt tug them, that it is to be presumed there can not be found any number of intelligent men who woold ask for a change. & Losses or the French armt ih the Caixia The Paris correspondent of the London Times state#, on authority of official information, that the number of French troops sent oat to the Crimea, from the commencement of the war, ie 182,QUO, of which number 120,000 are now effective.

He at-sured her with groat urbanity that he did not think it would. "Ah"' said she, a? she handed her snuff-box to Lee, at tho door.

Rb-assevblinc or the Boxapartb PAxnr ?The America* Bohai-artes?The Inde pendent Beige says : ' Nearly all the branches of the Bonaparte family will in a very short time be assembled in Paris, round the Ernpe ror Napoleon, who desires that the several persons bearing his name should form, ae it were, a faiscran near him. Last year, it will be remembered, the son of Prince Jeiome. by his first marriage with Miss Patterson, of Bal timore, and also the son of that genUtmaa, came to Pari* on the invitation of his Majo^ty. The father afterwards returned t-j America, to fetch another younger e?.n. and both are ex pected soon in Paris, to take up their perma nent residence. M. Patterson, Bonaparte's son, a Sue handsome young man ol tw; nty-five, formerly an officer in the American army, was placed hy the Emperor in the French army, and sent to the Crimea to join th9 dragoons.

Dr Radcliff. who was found of the pleasures of the table, was one afternoon comfortably disposing of a bot tle of wine, when a countryman entered ttio room, and begged him to oome immediately to his wife who was dying "I can't help it my fine fellow, I can't como till I have finished my bottle." Now it happened that tbe countryman was a large strong man, and the doctor a very small one; so it occurred to the former that his boat plan was to seise the doctor, and carry him off on his shoulders. He did ao, and while he was bearing him along, the doctor, bursting with rage, exclaimed: 44 You villain. PU curt your and he was as good as his word. To-Morrow Morning s Reflections ?The name of the architect who builds most of the castles in tho ftir is '* To-Morrow," and Hopo lays the foundation. The Pride that holds its head too high rare ly picks up anything; whereas. Modesty, like a diver, gathers pearls by keeping its head low. Blows and cut? are felt more keenly after a dispute, in the same way that wounds hurt a great deal more when the battle is over. A man pauses, hesitates, and requires time to study a woman, while a woman will read you a dozen men at first bight.
