[From Porter's Spirit of the Times J It's refreshing to heir Old Tom tell stories; for, though he gives the same one over a doien times he never tell? it twice alike ' 11* let < ff the following one morning last week, to an au dience of two persona, one of whom has prob ably heard it more times than a clock will tick on a long summer's day ; and who, con sequently, prepared himself for a doze as econ as Old Tom commenced with? " I'm an old man, my young fren\ but I tell you I've been through a power ov coon hunts in my time, an' I'm jus gain' to tell yer ov one ov 'em. It's as troo as I'm settin' on this here cheer " (He was sitting on a bench at the time ) " Mind yer. there air fellers who can't open their heads, 'bout huntin' 'spe cially, but what sartain sure out comes lie* They talk jus assmoove as welvit; but I know 'em ; they may riie purty airly, but they don't see no sun rise afore Old Tom does! They don t make no mark here ! (and at this he slapped himself half a foot below where his heart beats ) They may hit me in the years, but they don't tech no heart ov mino, nohow. I go in for trooth. I do! and I'm goiu' to give yor some this minnit " As Old Tom got up frr.m the bench at this " icinnit," his wide awake auditor thought he was going to the whisky barrel to get it But he didn t; he only got up in order to sit down again " As I was tell in' on you, i wunat went on a thunderin coon hunt down by Striker's Fun It waren'tpr >per time, now how, to hunt tho crceters, bein as it was the iniddel ov summer ; but Lishe Proper, be was bent on killin' coons, an' we tother boys waren t no way slow to follow arter him when he led off Lishe, he had a couple of the likeliest hound dogs round thetu regins?one ov 'em was tbe cornpletcst dogf< r luggin'creeters I ever seed llowsumever, wo started from Lishe Prop er'8 one July night: if I dureiuember right ly. the moon wos a shinin' when we sot out, an' arter travelin' nare about two mild*, we come enter the lower eend ov the pon'? Striker 8 Pon'?and all to onst Li*he Proper s hounds struck coon tracks, and toonod up their pipes like moosicianerS, I teil you! i had a little spaniel dog 'long, who tuck urtcr coons nat'ral as beef bones ; an' purty soon 1 heered him loudia' up too Says I to myself, 'Tom, there s a big ooon thareabouts 1 | kcow'd Jack's woice, the hull way fr in t ?>:h j to tail, an' he was cryin' bout a big one that ! time We foil the dogs nare lour inilds, t good measure, lore we treed that coon.

There wo wo*, men and buys, curs an' hounds, all rount tbe foot ov a big white cedar tree, a Wi.uin' for ?uuit.hiu' to turn up. 1 never seed no hound# kerry on like them 'ero ones of Lishe'a ; they pitched rount like ef they ware goin' to jump there hides off, a yellin an' a bowiin'. Ya-hooo hoooo-hooooo! *Here old Tom indulged in a prolonged howl, complete ly arousing k'c 2 of the audience, and caus ing him t ? start up wide awake ) Oh, y -u're wakiu' up, are ye ' i h?.t a way the hounds sung, and' the boys shouted, an' as the fire light beguu to shine up the tree, ?o;uo ov eui sot to work firiu' away at every aoi, and bunch as was to bo seen on the tree TLero 1 was a big shower ov bark flyin' around 'boct | that time, you may believe. Bimeby I seed way up on a top a-most branch. Mister Coon making hieself as small as a small tater; jus as L was goin' to fire, may I be dod-rabbit ef I didn't see two or nioro coons, on two other branches, alongside of tho fust." * How much whiskey had you on board that time, ch ' ' asked No 2. " Nary a drop more'n i could kerry jus well ballusted, an a goin' of it unner easy sail I wau't no ways owilv, an see* ?hem three coons as plain as I sec that cow a graain' over there in the medder Lithe Proper an' Zeke Seut ter, they seed 'em at the same time, an: Lishe. he was so aside hisself with seech a sigh*. ?iat ho pullt a big bottle right out ov hid coai pockit, an' we all took big drinks ot, the strength of sich a werry blessed sight At this point Old Tom got up from the bench and went behind the bar, ostensibly to get a piece of tobacco. Returning, he sat down and con tinued : '? All on a suddint, Lishe hadn't uivre'n got the whisky bottle inter his pockit, afore? 'Whang! whang! Boom-a-roocg-a-r-ong! " Here Old Tom. as an illustration of the noise, dashed on the floor wha* he thought was an empty portor bottle, and which he had kept studiously concealed until this moment, in or der to produce a "stunning effect" on his one hor?e audience By mistake he got hold of a bottle half full of bitters, and the way it and it and tbe broken glass flew round the room and over the audieneo was "promiscuous " " What the are you driving at ?" ask ed No 2, jumping from nL scut and trying to wipe off the stains from coat and pantaloons Old Tom stood a picture of sati-riso and astou is'uincnV At last stammering oat?"Why. why. who would hev tho't itf 1 tho't 1 knowed there was no thin' in that bottle. I've tired off more'n fifty of em a tellin' this here story (!) an' 1 never knowed ouc hev bitters in it aforo Here.

Arter a while I tries to raifc upon eend, an , luat hitoii, I thort I had a hive ov bees in my head, eich a bunin' an swimmin' rount Purty goon I comes too, an' the fust thing I seed was Lishe Proper a holdin on ter a dead coon with one band, an' tryiu to wipe the dust and bark out ov his eyes with his lothcr. ? Lishe,' saja I, ' where are wc V ut Tother bide of Jordan!' says he, ' an' tlie ferry boat broke, too, at that ! No matter, We ?Jut goin' to starve ! An' he belt up the i ooor.

Ihese plants form submarine forests. grow ing one into another, in apparently lawlees order; here interlacing their branches, there ^?rnaVDS bowers and long avenues ; atone time thriving abundantly, till the thicket eeems impenetrable, and then again leaving large openings between wold and wold, where small er P*ant> ^orm a beautiful pink tnrf. There a tboasard hues and tingea shine and glitter in each changing light, ^la the indul gence of their luxurious growth, the fuci ee pe:ially seem to gratify every whim and freak. Creeping close to the ground, or sending long stretched arms, crowned with waving plumes, up to the blessed light of heaven, they form pale-green sea groves, where there is neither moon nor star, or rise up nearer the surface, to be transcendently rich and gorgeous in brightest green, gold and purple. And through this dream-like scene, playing in all the colors of the rainbow, and deep nn der the hollow briny ocean, Iftiere sail and chase each other merrily gaily-painted mul luska and bright shining faces. Snails of every shape creep slowly along the stems, while huge gray-haired seals hang with their enormous turks on large, tall trees There is the gigantic dudong, the syren of the ancients, the side-long shark with his leaden eyes, the thick-haired sea leopard, and the sluggish turtle. Look how these strange ill-shaped forms, which ever keep their drearileas sleep far down in the gloomy deep, stir theuiselvee from time to time. See bow they drive each other from their rich pastures, how thoy awaken in storms, rising like islands from be neath, and snorting through the angry spray' Perhaps they graze peacefully in the cool of the ocean's deep beeJ,whenlo! a hungry shark comes slily, silently around that grove; its glassy eyes shone ghost-like with a yellow sheen, an J seek their prey The seadog fiis-t becomes aware of the prox imity of his dreaded enemy, and seeki refuge in the thickest of the fucus foreet In an instant the whole scene changes. The oyster cioses its shell with a clap, and throws itself into the deep below ; the turtle conceals head and feel under her impenetrable armor, and sinks slowly downward ; the playful little tish disappear iu the branches ef the maro eystie ; lobsters hide under the thick, clum sily shapes roots, and the young walrus alone turns boldly round and faces the intruder with his sharp-pointed teeth.
