A Stery ?f Fifty Express companies, in the coarse of their business, alway. bare a number of unclaimed or unredeemed packages left upon their hands. Jchn Smith, f >r whom there is a trunk which goes by express, cannot be found, and the isckage is returned to the office : and John brown, who is suspicious that the contents of a certain bundle will not pay costs and chargcs, refuses to receive the same, and the bund'.e goes hack to headquarters, while John Johnson is unable to pay freight and charge* on the bundlo sent to bim, and it is returned t> awa't an impiovement in Mr. Johnson's finances These unclaimed goods are known to tho express folks as "old hogs'' packages. The phrase 4 ? old hoss ' signifying that tney are cot productive, and that all the animal ever will be g?>od for?to carry out the fig ure?is his hido and shoes, for these packages do not often yield more than that proportion of their valuo. After these ancient equine? are kept a reasonable time, they are adver tised as being ior sale, " unsigbt unseen," and they are shipped off, bag and baggage, to be sold to the highest bidder, after haviDg been duly advertised in the newspapers. As these '?old boss" packages aresjld without ' break ing bulk," the sale is much in the nature of a lottery, tbe purchaser of a package not know ing whether he is bidding for a trunk full of silks, with a few diamond bracelets and neck laces interspersed through the goods, cr whether he is bay ii.g in the patched corduroys and hob nailed brogues of a gentleman en gaged in excavating on the railroad. Not a hundred years since, an express company, lo cated not a hundred miles from tbe city of Phi iadelphia, hy done of these ' pig in-a-poke*' kind of sales, where a very large stud of "old busses" was to be disposed of. There were bundles large and small; trunks heavy and ligiit, and packages of every cor.ceivab'e 8bape and style. The sale came off, somebody got the prises, if there were any, and some body c.se got the blanks, of which there cer tainly were tome, and the express company pocketed the profit or the loss, as the case may have been Shortly after the sale?and after the "old hos tb" had been scattered and forgotten by everybody except the purchasers?the agent of tbe express company was hailed one day by a stranger, who expressed a great anxiety to communicate something to him. The stran ger was a little, sharp looking German, not over cleanly in his person, or prepossessing in his general appearance. "Mr S ," 8 ?ys the little man, " I wants to shjr.eak mit you : someting for your own goot. Mind .' Tdon t rare for der fifty t-o-l-l-e-r-s ; but it a for your own goot!" The stranger said he did not care for the sum be named, but the manner in which he ] drawled out the word "dollars," tbe unction with which he dwelt upon it, and rolled it like 1 a sweet morsel upon nis tongue, abundantly proved that tbe dollar was his god Besides, ' the manner in which he introduced the dol lars without any explanation to his meaning, showed what was uppermost in hi8 mind 41 Well, ' responded Mr S. to this strange salutation of tbe avaricious German, " and what is for my own good'" '?I will tell you, Mr. S , but mini! I don't care Jor dtr Jifty t-o-l-l-e r-s I can afford to be sheated. for I is in de auction business myselfs. Ok ' I will give yon my card The card was produced from the breeches pocket of the little man. and Mr S read upon its greasy surface, that Mr Isaacs (as we will call the stranger) was a general dealer in sec ond hand goods, and that he moreover sold ( such articles as have parted from first hands ( at auuion Next to the " t-o-l-l-e-r-i," Mr Isaacs paid special attention to the circula tion of his cards, and his hand went to his pocket in search of the bit of pasteboard, as j though it was so used to it that the operation j had become purely mechanical. Mr. 15. could not glean from the card what j was " for his own goot,' and so he told the , littlo man. ( " W ait awhile,'.'continued the latter, " and I will tell you; but you see 1 don't nund der j fifty t o I l-t-r-s > "So I perceive," responded the express man, dryly. ?'No. tor I do goot business myselfs; I will?Ok .' I did give you my card From sheer force of habit tho little m^n plunged his hand into bin pocket in search of a card at the allusion to his business; but le collecting that he had already handed a "document" to Mr S., he finished the sen tcnco he was uttering in the manner we havj described " Well, you see, Mr. S , your Express Com- j pany is large, and make a goot deal of mon- | l.-b, and I links it wrong you go to people who ; sheato; but mi tid ' I don't care fur der jifty to-l-lers " But what about the fitly doiiars ? inter posed hstf tLo express, becoming somewhat wearied with his in noy-loviug friend "Ah!

The inevitable right hand went into the : breeches again, but it was again w.thirawn j empty, as usual. " De auctioneer who sell your goots have ] sheats in his store.
