Dr. munson has taken and fitted up the house formerly occupied by Major Robert Keyworth, No. Pennsylvania avenue, and is now1 ready to fulfil his old engagements and make new ones. Dr. M. is still mazing those beautiful continuous Gum Teeth, called Allen s Patent, for the excellency of which over all other styles of teeth, many now wearing them in this city, will cheerfully vouch. There is one Dentist in this city who has been Infringing the patent, and made a bad imitation of it, against whom I nere by caution the pubUc N. B Whenever a Dentist speaks against Allen's Patent Continuous Gum Teeth, when properly constructed, it is because he is Ignorant of the process, Incompetent to make the work, or is unwilling to pay /or the patent. Dr. M. Is now extracting teeth without pain by a new and perfectly safe process. Reference* 113In former advertisement. Jel6-tf THK VIRGINIA SPRINGS.

Mas Killed by his owk CorKiM ?On Sat urday night laet, a man who resided in Twen ty-ninth street was killed in a most singular manner. The following are the peculiar cir cumstances, as far as our reporter has been abla to learn them?for, in consequence of tho opinion entertained concerning hit relatives by tho deceased, who was a man of oonsider able wealth and respectability, they have made great effort to keep the particulars from the purlio ear. It appears tbat nearly a year ago the deceased, who was fifty-three years of age, became strongly impressed with an idea that, when he should die, the parsimonious disposition of his relatives would lead them to put him in a cheap coffin, while he had a strong desire to be buried in one of polished rosewood, lined with white satin and trimmed with silver. Soon after this strange idea got possession of his mind, he discovered an ele gant ooffin in one of the principal warehouse*, which suited him. He purchased il lor *75 ; had it sent to his residence at nightfall, and stowed it away in a small closet adjoining his bed*room, where it remained until the accident THE WEEKLY STAH, This excellart Family an4 News Journal?eon talnlng a greater variety of Interesting reading than can be fain* In any other?Is published on 8et<ir 4ay morning ttaai.

How it occurred i? not known to a certainty, for the first intimation tbe family bad of tbe lamentable occurrence was from a sen-ant, who, on going to call bim to breadfasl, foutd tbe door wide open, and tbe deceased lying upon tbe floor dead, with bis coffin at bit side. She screamed, which soon brought tbe family, and on raising the body tbe skull was found crushed in upon tbe brtin. lie wm discov ered about 80 clock jesterday morning, when, to all appearance, be had been dead several hours On examining the eloeet, a battle containing a quantity of sherry wine was found, and a? Saturday night was exces sively warm, he is supposed to have gone to the closet in order to procure the wine to use with some ice-water be had on a small table by bis bedside. It is thought he must have sought for it in the dark, and by some mistake upset tbe coffin, which stood nearly upright. Becoming sensible that it was fall ing. be probably made an effort to get away, when be fell, and the outer end straek his bead with sufficient force to fracture bis skull and cause almost immediate death. The in quest will be held with all possible aeerery. Tbe unfortunate impression of the deees?ed concerning bis relatives is a sufficient reason for withholding the names of the parties.? N. Y. Times. A SHY AT THE CATS. We stated a long time ago that there would be trouble some moonlight night among the cats that congregate on tbe long shed in the rear of our dwelling. We gave notice that we bad wasted more wood on them than we were able to spare?that we had used up all tbe brickbats that we could lay our bands on? that wo bad thrown away something lest than a ton of coal?and had smashed a window on the opposite block. All this proving of no avail, we said we had got a double-barreled gun, and percussion caps, and powder and shot; and some morning, after a moonlight night, somebody's cat would'nt come hou:e to breakfast, or. if it did, it would be troubled with the dumps. We gave fair notice of our grievances, and what we intended to do about th?m. Well, the moon came up one Monday night, with her great round face, and went waltiug up the sky with a queenly step, throwing her mantle of brightness over the whole earth. We love the calm of a moonlight ni^ht in the siill spring time, and the cat* of our part of the town love it, too; from the sheds around National Garden?from tbe kitchens and the ctahies?creeping stealthily and softly along the tope of fences, and along the sheds, and clambering up the boards that lean against the outbuildings, they sit themselves down, more or less ot tuem: in their old trysting place*?riiht opposite our chamber window To all this we have in tbe abstract no objec tion. If a cat wishes to take a quiet walk in the moonlight?if he choses to go out for his pleasure or profit?it is no particular business of ours, and we hav'nt a word to say. Cats have rights, and we have no disp<*ition to interfere with them But they must keep peace They must get up no disorderly meet ing, no unlawful assemblies. If they choose to hold a convention, they ctu do it for all of us?hut they must go about it decently and in order. They must talk their matters over calmly ; there must be no rioting, no fighting Tbey must refrain from the use of profane lan guage ; they inust'nt swear. There's law against all this, and we warned them long ago that we would stand no such nonsense. We said we would let drive among thero with a double-barreled gun, loaded with powder aad duck shot, aad we meant it But these cats didn't believe we had any powder and shot. They did nt believe we bad any gun, or knew Low to use it, if we had. And one great Mal tese (with eyes like two plates and a tail like a Bologna sausage,) grinned and spluttered, and spu in derision and defiance at our threat* 44 \ ery well/' said we; 44 very well, Mr Tom Cat. very well, indeed On your bead be it, Mr Tom Cat. Try it on, Mr. Thomas Cat, and see how you'll get the worst of it " We said the moon came up on Monday night, with her great round face ; and all the littlo stars bid themselves, as if ashamed of their twinkle in the splendor of her bright ness We retired, after tbe baby had been put to sleep in his crib, and the rumble of the carriages and cart* bad ceased in the street*, and the screa:n of the ten o'clock train had died away in silence, with a quiet conscience, and tbe confidence that we should find that repose to which one who has wronged no man during the day is justly entitled. It may have been eleven o'clock, possibly midnight, when were awakened from a pleasant slum ber by a babel of unearthly sounds in the rear * f our chamber. We knew what these sounds meant?they had oost uj fuel enough to have last us a week. We raised the window, and there, as of old. right opposite us. on the no.-th end of that old shed, was an assemblage of all tbe oate in that part of the town We wont be precise ns to the number, but it is our honest belief that thero was no less than three hundred of them, and if one among them was silent we didn't succeed in discovering which it was X.icrc was that same old Maltese, with his great saucer eyes and sausage tail, and over against bim was a monstrous brindle, and uti nt her right was an old spotted ratter; and <?n bis left was one black as a wolf's mouth, all but his eyes, which glared with a sulphurous and lurid brightness ; and. dotted all around over a space of thirty feet square, were doi ens more, of all sites and colors?aud such growling, and spitting, and shrieking, and swearing, never before broke with hideous discourse tho silence of midnight. We loaded our double barreled gun by can dlelight; we put plenty of powder and a handful of shot into each barrel. We ad* justed the caps carefully, and stepped out of the windew upon the narrow roof upon which it opens We were then just eighty feet from tbe oat convention ; end we addressed oursetf to tbe chairman?the old Maltese?in a dis tinct audible voice, and cried " scat." He didn't recognise our right to the floor, but went on with the business of the meeting. "Scat!" cried we, more emphatically thau before, but were atswored by an extra shriek from the chairman and a fiercer scream from from the whole assembly. 44 Sjat once!" we cried again, as we brought our gun to a pre sent. "Scat twice!" and we aimed straight at tbs chairman, covering a dozen others in tbe range. "Scat, three times '" and we let drive. Bang went tho left hand barrel, and bang went the right hand barrel. Such scamper ing. such leaping off tbe outbuildings, over tbe top of tbe wood shed, was never seen be fore The echoes of the firing bai hardly died away when tbe whole assemblage was broken up and dispersed. ' Thomas." said we the next morning to the boy who does chores for us, " thero seems to be a cat asleep out on tfeatbed; go up and scare it away." Thomas clambered upon the shed, and went up where the cat lay, and lifting it up by tbe tailt haloed back to us : "The cat can't be waked up; it can't b? acared away?it's dead." After examining it awhile, " somebody has been a t>hootin' of it. by thunder !" said he, as he tossed it down into tbe yard. 44 You don't say so said we. lhat was the old Maltese, the chairman of the convention, but be won't preside over an other very soon. We don't know where he boarded, or T7ho claimed title of hia. Wbat we do know is, that it oost ue a quarter to have him buried or thrown into tbe river, and if any body owned him, all we ask is that be should pay us back our quarter, and the dif ference between his value and the powder and shot we expended on him We throw in the vexation of baing broken of our reat, and the wickedness of Ufcicg certain expletives which are not to be found in auy of the religious works of the day.
