An American and an Englishman having descended into a coal mine to inspect itd dingy wonders, upon emerging they bold the following dialogue : 44 Do you know," said I, 14 Picton what we would do if we bad such a devil's pit as that in the States ?" '?Well?" answered the traveler, interroga tively. 44 We would make niggers work it." 44 I dare say," replied Picton, dryly and sa tirically ; 44 but, Sir, I am proud to say that our government does not tolerate barbarity ; to consign au iuoffensive fellow creature to such horrible labor, merely because bo is black, is at variance with tho well-known humanity of thu whole British nation, Sir." 14 But those miners, Picton, were black as the devil himself." 44 The miners," replied Picton, with impres sive gravity. 44 are black, but not negroes. 44 Nothing but mere white people, Picton ?" 44 Eh ?" said the travelor. 44 Only white people, and therefore we roed not waste one grain of sympathy over a whole pit full of them." 44 Why not?" "Becauso they are not niggers ; what is the use of wasting sympathy upon a rat-bole full of white British subjects?" ??I tell you what it is." said Pioton, 4,you are getting personal." 44 Not at all. my good friend. I am only talk ing of British subjects in the abstract; you un derstand?this is always the way with talking philanthropists, and it reminds me of a story : In the course of my travels, I once met with a queer couple?representatives of your nation and mine. The Yankee was a tail oompound of skin and whalebone; the Englishman, a tall, wiry animal, with red hair, and eyes like a fer ret. Yankee bent over him liko an elm over a scrub oak. So far as the divine influence of the gra{?e was concerncd they were about equal. 44 I tell you what is, Johnny Bull," said the altitudinous ono, 44 there's one thing I want you to remember nsagen'ral principle, you can take any one Yankee, (laying tho fore-fin gcr of bis right hand on the thumb of his left,) and put him before any two Englishmen, (ear rying his right fore-finger to the first and second fimrers of his left hand,) and he'll whip em both." ?'Ye think so, d'yo ?" said the ferret-eyed. 44 Yes, sir, you can bet your life on that, as a gen'ral principle. Take any one Yankee, (thumb.) and any two live Englishmen, (two fingers.) and he can whip 'em so quick you wouldn't have time to say Balaam! 4- You think so, d'ye ' said ferret-eyed, get ting restive. 4> Yea, eir, I kuov? it, you can bet your life on it." " Well sir," replied the little fellow, squaring his yards,44 you are a Yankee, and I'm an Eng lishman?only on* Englishman, suppose you try me?" 44 0h! look here. Johnny Bull," replied the altitudinous. droopingover him. 441 didn't mean anything personal; I only meant it as an abstract thing?as a gen'ral principle; take any two Englishmen, (two fingers.) and any ono Yankee, (thumb,) and he'll whip 'em quicker'n you can ?ay 'scat!' I mean, of course, as a gen'ral prin ciple."

Culpeper Court House, Va., Under the Instruction and Superintendence of the MISSES FORXEKKT. This School will be re-opened on the 1st of Sep tember, 1857, for the reception of Hoarders and a lew day Scholars. The object in view is to extend to ail who apply and are admitted, a thorough and useful education. No pains will be witt held from giving the young Ladies such instructions as will adapt them for every duty and emergency of life. While the ornamental branches will not ue neglected, the solid and fundamental principles of heirt and head education will be the special objects of asiduous at tention. Female education has now taken such a firm hold on public attention, that, to proclaim its advantages, would be to portray a degree of ignorance not com patible with modern imurovement. The elevating influence of female education is felt and aeknowl ed^ed by overy admirer of female excellence; hes I'atethen. no longer, to bestow on your daughters tlnwe advantages that are indispensible to their ad vancement ana success through life. As the School increases, the number of Teachers will tiealso increased: thereby securing every aux iliary to the rapid advancement of the Student. Every effort will be put forth to maintain tho high tone and character of the School. Appropriate hours will be set apart for study and daily exercise. The discipline will be mild and per suasive, but very firm. Two Saturdays are appoint ed every month for I he girls to visit and make pur chases. The Gospel is preached from four different pulpits.affording to each the^rivilege of attending the Church of her choice. No influence will l>e ex erted to control the religions prejudices of the pu fuU. While practical Christianity wili form the .asis of their instruction, the selection of Churches and SablAth Schools will be submitted to the decision of parents and pupils?the variety of religious priv ileges here, will not fail to offer satisfaction to all. No Scholar will l?e taken forashor'^r term tl?an fiveinontls admission wii be obtain* d'any time dur ing the session, and charged only from the time of entrance.
