How Deacon F. interfered in Sol's Family by joha. riTrHroH Sol was an honest, clever man In all hia intercourse with his friends and neighbors be would do what he oonceived to be right and honest Unfortunately, however, he was not gifted with the mental power in an extraor dinary manner. Sol was a member of the Methodist Church, and in his neighborhood there was a small school-house in which the Methodists held their different kinds of meet ings, as class-meetings, prayer-meetings, Over tho class cf the members in that neigh borhood was placed a man who was a kind of religicus tyrant, who would enforce with a Shylock strictness the rules of his church. According to Sol's account of the matter he he'd meetings three times a week ; and if the members failed to attend each meeting he would arraign them, and solemnly threaten to exfoliate them. He endeavored, by this means, to keep his flock together. But we will now let Sol tell, in his own way. how the Deacon's strict rules operated < n him and family: " While we had meetings once a week,"' said Sol, " I was happy, and Sally she was happy, and my children they was happy ; and 1 loved Sally, and Sally loved me. But then Deacon F., he must have meetin' three times a week. I told him it was too oft?n ; he said it wasn't, and that I should come, and my wife and daughter they should come. So he interfered in my family, and told them they must come whether I wanted them or not; they went. Now it was too bad for a poor man like mo to go to meetin' three times a week. When wo had meetin's once a week my leRther cost me three dollars a year, but when it was three times a week it cost me four dollars forty-seven cents and one-fourth' For my family wore out their shoes runnin' to meetin'. A poor man can't stand it. It's not right for a man to interfere in another s family. It used to bo they would d# what I wanted them, but now they won't listen to me. "And the other day when I came home, don't you believe Saily turned her back to me and wouldn't notice me ! Oh ! it nearly killed me, for I loved Sally. Now. when a stranger comes, and Sally cooks meat for sup per, my children, from the littlest to the big gest. will just pick up their forks and sock them right into a piece of meat; and before the Deacon interfered in my family, they'd cat their mush and milk and go to bed. And in the mornin', when Sally cooks biacuit they'll, the first thing, snatch a biscuit in- i stead of catin' cora-bread as they use to do ! And now I'm about out of wheat, when, in the fall I counted up and had plenty f<>r ' breakfast the year round ; and this is all 'cause he interfered in my family. Now, wasn't that enough to make anybody lose his j religion7 And that's not all. 41 The other mornin' I catched a turkey, and , was goin' to bring it to town to buy some coffee, and don't you believe Sally screamed j < ut, ' Put down that turkey; you'll have everything on the place destroyed !' In course, | I drapped it like a hot tater, cause 1 loved Sally. What was I to do for cc ffeo ? Well, I put the bridle on old Kosum, and got a bu.-hcl of corn to come to town with; and Sally j come out and saw Kosum and the corn, and ; hollered, ' What you goin' t<> do ?' 11 Id h?r ! softly as 1 could, thnt I was goin' to town to get some coffee, and don't you think Sally made me hitch up Kosum, and said she was goin' herself, so she was ! And 1 bitched up Kosum, 'cause I loved Sally. But I thought I'd kinder check her, so I pulls off my pant? and hands em to Sally, and told her she had ' better wear them. And my stars ! if Sally ; didn't take 'cm and put 'em on ! "Now what was I to do? Them was my over-alls, under-alls, and in-alls. Well, Sally I brought me an old, slim red striped linsey dresb?cusa the old thing ?I can just see her now shakin' it at me I had to put it on ! And I had'nt mor n got it on, till I sees a ! neighbor comin'. What must I do, thinks I to myself. I run and jumpted into bed, and i begun to groan awful, lie comes and says, < 'Not well, Sol?' 4 No,' says I, 'neighbor,' not well.' My little imps of childer was settin' ? r< und sniggerin and laughin', and presently Bill say, ' Mam's coat makes dad groan pow- \ erful" 1 jumped up?and who would ni '? : to whip Bill, before I thought. Neighbor ! jumped up and stared at me, and no wonder, 'cause my coat hung right down, and didn't touch the floor by a foot and a half. I was a ' sight, I tell you. And this was all 'cause he ; interfered in uiy family. Well, neighbor kin i (ier compromised 'tween me and Sally, and I got my pants, but I guess I slept with them on for the next six months ! "Well, Sally come onto town and got the ' oeffee, and what do you think she told the storekeeper? Why. not to credit me! Ij come to town after a few days, and wanted to ' buy some goods, and the storekeepers said they reckoned I was broke, as my wife told 'em not to credit me. Thunderation, couldn't la squashed her'. I could'dt stand it any longer, I cut for a forrin country?and this was all 'cause he interfered in my family But I guess I had'nt been gone long 'fore S illy writ to me, and said she loved me harder than ever she did. So I come home, and Sally did love me as she use to did, and I love Sa!iy, and the childer they loved me and I loved them, and they eat their mush and corn bread, and don't wear out but three dollars worth cf leather a year?and this is all 'cause there's no meetin' three times a week, and nobody interferes in my family."?Spirit of the Times. i ? ; Childish Sihckbitt ?A lady who was in j the habit of dropping in at her neighbor's ' about meal time, in the hope of obtaining an | invitation to partake with the family, was re cently completely nonplussed by the unhesi tating frankness of a child Knowing that aneighbor'a supper hour was five, she called in about four, and settled her self down for a long call. ''It takes two to make a bargain.'* and the lady honored wUh the call had no idea of giv ing an invitation, if it was in her power to es cape it. Accordingly the hour of five brought no indications of supper Time wore on, the sun was near ita setting, and still the same. A little girl, the daughter of the lady in ques tion began to grow quite uneasy. At length, her mother having gone out for a moment, the visitor said? "You must come over and tee me, Mary, some time." "No, I wont," said the child. "Why not?" "Because I don't like you." "But why don't you like me ?" "Because I'm hungry, and want aome sup 9f per ? " But," said the visiter amared, " J don't prevent you having your aupper, do IT" " Yes you do," said little Mary. "Mother said she* wouldn't have supper till you were gone, if you staid till midnight." In less than five minutes the visitor was marching out of the front door with a very red face She hasn't oalled to see little Mary aince. Little Mary, in her childish frankness haa not yet learned the important lesson which after years will not fail to teach her, vis : that " the truth, however excellent or desirable in itself, is not to be apoken at all times." IdiT The young ladies of Lagro, Ind , hav ing adopted a resolution in temperance meet ing not to ^ceive the addresses of uuy young man addioied to cups, the young gentlemen publish a pledge signed with their proper names, stating that they will not keep the com party of young women who are members of this soolety! m Ocean Wonders How pleasant it would be for those who an nually pass many pleasant boar* upon the Ma shore, to possess a sufficient knowledge of in sect and vegetable life, to enable them to study intelligently the habits and peculiarity ol those curious little marine insects and vege table* which are so abundant upon the rocks and beaches In a recently published work by Professor P. 11 tiosse, we find the follow ing interesting aocount of the manner in which the poor little hermit crab is rpongtd oat of its house: " A singular little creature, called the Her mit Crab (pagiirws,) the hinder part of whose body is unprotected, except by a soft skin, is endowed with an instinct which prompts it to seek some univalve shells, into whieh it thrusts it* abdomen, ^encefurth using it as a house. Now there is a species of sponge foend on our coast (H tuberm,) of a corky substanee. which grows on the surface ot similar shells, overspreading and enveloping them; and it so happens that in the great majority of in stances the ?k>onge is found ui.ou the individ ual shells inhabited by the Hermit. Grad ually and insensibly tbe sponge grows over '*tlie shell, and at lengtb creeps round the edge of the lip, and begins to line the inside ; the ojnbtant motion of the crab, who is very ac tivo, retards the growth for awhile, bat event ually the Sponge prevails, and the Hermit finding his premises becoming every day more and more contracted, is at length compelled to seek another lodging." Mr Oosse says it is a remarkable charac teristic of all the little water fleas which we see in every salt water pool, that they have but a single eye, which is generally of a bright crimson hue, sparkling like a little ruoy, and is set in front of the head. Of tbe s&ark s nursery, Mr. Gosse says : " The mode by which the race of these for midable creatures is continued, differing as it does so greatly from that of most other fishes, is exceedingly curious. The shark, instead of depositing some' millions of eggs in a sea son, like the cod or the herring, produces two "f a square or oblong form, the coat of wbich is composed of a tough horny sub stance; each comer is prolonged into a ten dril, of which the two which are next the tail of the enclosed fish are stronger and more prehensile than tbe other pair Tbe use of these tendrils appears to be their entangle ment among the stalks of seaweeds, and the consequent mooring of the egg in a situation of protection and comparative security. Near tbe head there is a slit in the egg skin, through which the water enters tor respiration, and another at the opposite extremity by which it is discharged That part of tbe skin which is near the head, is weaker and more easily ruptured than any other part; a provision for the easy exclusion of the animal, which takes place before the entire absorption of the rs tellua or yolk of the egg. the* remainder be ing attached to the body of tbe young fisb, enclosed in a capsule, which for awbile it carries about. The position of the animal, while within the egg, is with the head dou bled back towards tbe tail, one very un favorable for the process of breathing by internal gills, and hence there is an interest ing provision made to meet the emergency. On each side n filament of the substance of the gills project* from the gill-opening, containing vessels in which the blood is cxpose-l to the action of the water. These processes are gradually absorbed after the fish ia excluded, until which the internal gill.. ..re scarcely ca pable of respiration. Philosophy or Sxeizixg?A.sneeze always indicates that there is something wrong. It doos not occur in health unless some foreign agent irritates tbe membranes of the nasal passages, upon which the nervous fila m nts are distributed. In case of cold, or what is termed infiuenta, these are unduly excitable, and hence tbe repeated meetings which then occur The nose receive* three sits of nerves?the nerves of smell, those of feeling, and those of motion The former communicates to the brain the edorous prop erties of substances with they come in con tact, in a diffused and concentrated state ; the second communicates the impressions of touch; the third move the muscle* of the nose?but tbe powers of these muscles are very limited. When a sneeze occurs, all these faculties are excitcd in a high degree. A grain of snuff excite the olfactory nerves, which despatch to the brain the intelligence that "Snuff has atta-ked the nostril!" The brain instantly sends a mandate through the motor nerves to tbe muscles, saying. "Cast it out!" and the result is untaistakeable. So offensive is the enemv besieging tbe nos trils held to be, that the nose is left to its own defense. It were too feeble to accomplish this. An allied army of museles join in the rescue ; nearly one half of the body arouses against the intruder ; from the muscles of the lips to those of the abdomen, all unite in the effort for the expulsion of tbe grain of muff. Let us consider what oocurs in the instanta neous operation. The lung becomes fully in flated, the abdominal organs are pressed down wards, and the veil of the palate drops down to form a barrier to the escape of air through tbe mouth, and now all the muscles which have relaxed for the purpose, oontract simul taneously, and forced tbe oompressed air from the lungs in a torrent out through the nasal pasiages, with the benevolent determination to sweep away the partiele of snuff which has been causing irritation therein. Such, then, is the complicated action of a sneete ; and if the first effort does not suoceed. then follows a second, a third, and a fourth , and not until victory is achieved, do the army of defenders dissolve their compact, and settle down into the enjoyment of peace and quietude [This extract i* from tbe Journal of Medical Reform, says Mr Littell, of the Living Age, published in New York, and ia a little bit of philosophy " not to be sneezed at." A Peep at Tom Campbell ?In a letter of the late Thomas Campbell, just printed, the deceased poet expresses himself as distressed at his inability to discover materials for a life of Mrs Siddons, *' dear, good MrsSiddons." He writes: "She was a very angel, but devils make better stuff for a biography than angels. The old toothless ladies?onoe dashing beauties? that were her sworn friends, heap upon me reams of proof of her piety parity; bat Lord help me. I can make no use of all their twad dle. * * Had she been a fie-fie, or a drunk ard, or a termagant, I should have had eom parativelv & sinecure in my biographical daty to her. Nevertheless, there are some interest ing particulars about her; her great gtand uncle was executed for being a Catholic priest. I have some faint hopes of being able to prove that he was even burnt alive ; but, unhappily that is not certain. Poor man it would make no difference to him new by what death he died; but to me it woald be most desirable, if possible, that he sboald have died by fire, for the sake of an exciting impressicm on my amiable readers." First Love ?A Fact ?Jeremv Dumps had arrived at a period of life when he thought a wife would be quite a convenient acquisition to his household. Aooordingly he made some inquiries among his friend* who would be a suitablo person for him "Alice Bradshaw will make you a good wife,'* said a noighbor. " Well I'll take a look at Acr,'' said Jeremy, as if he was about te view a piece of land or a horse Pursuant to this, he mounted his pony and rode straightway to the door of the damsel whom he had never seen. He knocked, she appeared at the door, after tbn usual salutation he remarked, " I wonder f you're the gal what's been recommended to nte. if you be. jest say so, and Til come in, and ttay all night with youV?Dedham Adv.
