A PREDICAMENT; I Or, Pleating dtwa the Obi*. [C05CLUP1D. ] 1 44 Well, I have often told yoa I bad seen I hard times, now wasn't here a pr^iiemmsnt ? I Cn a log with two ingens, and floating along I at night dowu the Ohio. Well, sure enough. I there I was, and what did I think of* I Why, of everything in this world; it raily made me feel quite knotty, and what to do I I did'nt know. "We had now floated two or or three hun- I dred yards, and I wa* sitting, a? I told you before, straddled on the small end, and jest as I silent as a deei listening for the dogi. think- I ing how the affair wjuld terminate, when one I of the logins, who was still standing upon the I log. stepped <ff one of the limbs to make room for bis companion. His stepping caused the log to careen me into the water, and for- I getting where I was. and what I was about, I cried: 'Stop! stop! you'll turn me oyer.' I 4 Oh!" said I to myself, 4 it is all over now? ciean gone this time.' 4i How the Ingens looked, I don't know, for I i was so dark I could nt see their faoes ; but I tbey must have been worse skcerei than I I was, for I knew who they were, but they did I not know who I was. They kept muttering something very fast, and 1 thought they were I going to quit the log and streak it, but arter I a few minutes they became silent, and began I peeping towards where 1 was, like a couple of I turkeys looking for worms. And then one said : 4 don't you see something V 14 4 Yes,' answered the other, 1 dark lump : I bear, perhaps;' and then the one who first spoke cried out: 'who's there V I did'nt I answer, but I growed small so fast, trying to I squeeze myself out of sight, that my skiu I hung as loose as if it was a big jacket They kept peeping at me, and I heard one say: I 4 It is no bear. It is a man ; look at bis head ' "When I hoard him say so, I wao so mad I that I wished my head was under the log; I but then I thought if it was, I would'nt be I any better off than I was then, so I straight- j ened up; I know'd they had seen mo, and I thought twan t worth while to puSeum any longer. Well, when I straigtened up he cried out agin, 4 who's there ?' 41 am here,' said I, speaking in his own language. The moment 1 spoke he laughed, and said to the other: 4 be is a pale face.' " 44 Well, the reason he knowed too so quick I was. that he seed I didn't speak the real In- I gen. Arter he had told the other that I was I a pale face, he turned to me and said: "What are you doing there ?" " Sitting down strad dle on the small end," said I. When I said ihis, they burst out out into a laugh ; I my- I self vras in no laughing humor, and it didn't ] seem to n>e like a laugh, but like a Sort of I chuckle, and os? said to tho otter, 44 He is.a | pale face, a lean dog, sleeping on a log ; we I did catch him good after^aying this they I put their hands to their mouths and gave the war-whoop 1 tell you wha*, it was an awful sound, and then they told their companion* j on shore that a pale face was on the log with I them, and to gut the boat and come quick. I Those on shore answered them and ran laugh* ing (town the river looking for the boat, and keeping 'along with the log. i now found that 1 I must go at the old work, and my bristles J began to rise. 4' Come hero,*' said one of em, beckoning j to me. 44 Come quick before the others come ; I want your hair." 4* What did ho mean by that?" said one, who with tho most fixed attention had bten standing by, eagerly devouring all that Earth had been telling 4* Why, he wanted to scalp me,'' eaid Earth ' Well, when he cailed me to him to let him have my h?ir, I couldu t stand it any iongar, but throwing up my rifle, blazed away ; he jumped up like a buck, and tell splash in the water. My rifle made a mighty pretty noise, and I heart the report rolling away for miles up and down the river. 44 As soon as I fired, the Ingens on the bank hlso screamed the war-whoop, and the fellow on the iog cried out to 'em to bring his gun. I jumped up and crawled to him; he gather ed up u limb and stood his ground. Tue first thing I knowed he come down on me all in a heap, breaking the eld limb into a doien pieces over my head and shoulders ; it was a good thing for me that the limb wan t sound. 44 His blow staggered me, but I soon rose up, and seizing my rifle with both hands brought him a side wipe with the barrel. As I did, he slipped off the log in the water ; I then hit him another lick, and stooping quick ly down seized him by the head, as he tried to crawl up on the log; 1 was cow upon the log, and he in the water, so I had him at a disadvantage " Well, 1 kep; him bobbing his head un der; when 1 first did it, the bubbles came up just like you were filling a bottle with water; you know after a bottle is full, it won't bub ble *, well, I kept bobbing his head under un til he would not bubble, so I concluded he was full of water, and then let him go; he went down to the bottom; and I never seed him any more. 4>A11 was now quiet, for both lujens had sunk, and I was now master of the log ; but I had yet another struggle to make, for 1 heard the Ingens on the shore push off their beat, and seed the water splash as they darted towards me It was too late to load, and then I could kill but one; that wouldn t do?no, the only hope was to hide : so I took out a string, and placod my rifle in the water, lash ing it to tho log I then threw away my hat, and crawled as far as I could toward the small end, oasing myself into the water. leav ing nothing out out my he.?d, and holding on with both hands by a small limb?another minute, and the canoe grated as it run upon the log. The lnjens looked about and spoke to each other, but could see nothing ; they then called their companions by Lame, but there was no answer. Tbey were now very much distressed, and all got upon the log and began to walk about and examine it. " When they came to the end where I was 1 sunk altogether, and it being the tm&li end of the log it began to sink, and the Ingens soon went back. I then threw my head back, and put my mouth out that 1 might breath*-, just as a crippled duck sometimes does its bill. I made no noise, it was dark, they could ix>t see me, and all went well. 1 heard them say, ' they must have killed him,' and then that 4 they are gonethey seemed very much dis tressed, wondered much at the whole affair, and neither could explain it. After about litteen minutes they agaiu stepped into their boat and pushed oft*. I waited until I could hear nothing of them, then crawled up on tho log, and as I did not wish t*> run any further risk, I sat there till daybreak. 44 The sun was about ri lug when the log 1 was upon washed up against the bank not far from where the Ohio empties into the Mis sissippi I caught hold of some bushes and pulled the log up alongside of the bank, un loosed my rifle, and got out. I had been in the water so long that I was mighty weak, and I was shriveled up, but as I began to stir about 1 felt better, aud setting ufi I went back up ife river to where I started upon the log. The first thing I seed upon getting back was old Jupe sitting on the bank waiting for me at the very spot where the log slipped i ff. The thing wauted to lick me all over, she was so glad to seo me. I was then right tired, so I started off home, and in about a week or two Jupe and I arrived there safe and sound, and that is the end of my story."

Adam's Wedding " The editor says that he liked bliort courtships, and in this acted like a sen sible man?he fell asleep a bachelor, and awoke to find himself a married mau. He appears to have " popped the question" im mediately after meeting Mademoiselle Ere, and aho with ut flirtation or shyness gave him a kiss and herself Of that flrst kiss iu tti-w ?rld we h*ve hai, however, our own thoughts, and sometimes in a poetical mooi we wisu we were done; the ehance wa< Aaam s ar.d ho improved it. We like the notion of getting married in a garden ; it is in good taste. We like a private marriage, and Adam's was strictly private No envious beaux were there, no croaking old maids, no chattering aunts, and grumbling grandmoth ers. The birds cf heaven were the minstrels, and the glad sky shed its light upon the i.ene. On, speaking about the lirst wedding, brings queer ideas into our heads, in spite of the scripture truth. Adam and his wife were rather young to be marifed? some two or three years, according t) the sagest speculations of thuologist?mere babies?larger but not older ?without a house, without a pot or a kettle nothing but love and Eden!
