KT SINGLE COPIES ONE CENT. AUGUST 17, 1857. NO. 1,428. A Dl'EL UP NORTH. BT CLARA ACGCSTA. Jonas Whitcomb and Silas Jones had a quar rel about the boot-jack, on the 2,'id day of May, A D. 1S56. The circumstance!' were briefly these : Jonas purchased a patent boot-jack of a traveling agent, and Silas protested against the purchase as a piece of reckless extravagance ; asserting that the patent jack was no better than one ho had. wnicb wa^ manufactured by" himself out of a white-pine backlog! Silas's foot was none of your Chinese affair*, but a reg out-ind-outcrof Behemoth?fitted by boot* No. 10. and bout-jack No. ?, back log! Jonas took offence at Silas's plain speaking and retorted bitterly, and the war of words ran high. At length SUas, who had been reading the prncadiags of Congress, challenged Jonas to fight a duel, and threatened to call him " Boot iack Whitcomb'' forever, and thrash him in the bargain, if he refused to fight. Jonas thought the matter over, and after due deliberation concluded he had rather be shot than be dubbed Knight of the Boot-jack. So a meeting was a^r^ed iy?>n, to take place the following day, in Deacon Reed's tater patch, being somewhat re moved from tho highway, and therefore favora ble for the transaction of an affair mosl peremp torily forbidden by the laws of our State. The weapons were to be the belligerents'own guns, two very curious and original articles, l?y the way, which without doubt dated back to the times of Tubal Cain. They were to have no seconds, for fear of betrayal, and afterwards a term of years in the gray stone palace of Con cord. The preliminaries being arranged, both par tios went home to prepare themselves for the very comfortable prospect of a breakfast of lead bullets on the ensuing morning. Somehow, Mrs Whitcomb "got wind'' of the business, and she (being a woman of spirit) called immediately on Mrs. Jones and reveale*. all. Mrs. Jones w;is a church member, in good standing with the brethren and sisters, and, cf coars?. she felt dreadfully at the idea of being the wife of a duelist' So the two women pui their beads together, and between them quito a little plot was concocted ?almost equal to the gunpowder plot celebrated in English history It was proposed that each lady should empty th* contents of her husband's powder horn into the river, and substitute black sand for tho powder. This was accordingly done, after which they awaited the result of tho morning'* ren contre with anxious hearts. Nine o'clock found the combatants upon Deacon Reed's 'tater lot, each with his powder horn along on his shoulder, and his gun in his hand. The distance was measured off?the two men solemnly shook hands, and then respec tively assumed their positions. At a precon certed signal, each raised his weapon to hi* shoulder and?tried to fire. But the obstinate things wouldu t gooff' Jona? gave a heartv tug at his ehaotkig iron, but it only snapped sulkily, aa much as to say it would do as it had a mind to. and no thanks to anybody. Silas' gun wns of the same opinion, and the men's chances of being shot seemed rather dubious. Jonas, after a little while, got irritated, and squatting down on the ground, he pounded tho barrel lor fifteen minutes or so with a sharp rock, but without producing any effect worth mentioning. Then Jonas rose up, and flingine the gun as far as he oould over the hedee he cried out. spitefully? '? Damnation seise the thing ! I wish it was in Flanders!" "I wish mine was there, too.'' cried Silaa. examining his artillery minutely, and findinz nothing satisfactory about it. he t**sed it after Jonas . Then both men looked atoach other, in blank dismay. " What shall we do?" exclaimed Silas. ''Idon't know," returned Jonas, -unless we take fists for it. " But I can't fight so, I've got an awful felon on my right fore finger, and that'll be in the waJ- Silas evidently felt bad about it. "Well, then, aupj>oso we tick it out ? I m sorry that I can t accommodate you. but my feet are so covered with corns that it's on possible. I'll but with ye, and that's the best 1 can do. 441 should be glad to bite; but the truth is, my front teeth are all false ones?cost fifty dol lars?and I kinder don't like to spile 'era'"' 4-What shall we do, then?" asked Silas, in despair. " Let's sit down here on this log and consider the matter. I'm tired." Jonas' red, perspiring face spoke more plainly than his tongue. So the men eat down on the two extreme ends of the log, and eyed each other for a while in silence. At length Silas arose. "Look here, neighbor Whitcomb, what if we should make up? I hadn't any business to say anything about y?ur boot-jack, and I'm sorry 1 - *?rv- don 1 <*ou*,t but your jack's a fine thing ' w hitcomb sprang to his feet, and grasped Jonas's hand. r ..."

I oould crawl into a holler log and stay there a fortnight, if it would only undo what I ve done.

Tne content lasted until the strength of the champions wa* completely spent. Jonas was ing submissively in a shallow ditch half filled Uh frog* mud snake* and water, (the ditch StLSST L ? , hltcomb "as romantically a^ bTsVt'k TKtting ?n * f0tten ,tumP' io * "Jonas rr 44 Well ?*? -v S !!

But come, you crawl out of the ditch, while I get my feet clear of this bush It strikes me we can help one another?that's it?thero, I'll meet you half way." The two worthier crept out together, shook hands, and after a great deal of oscillating and vascillating. they stood upright. On their way home, says Jonas to Whiteomb: '? Look here, neighbor, don't less say nothin' about this ever!" '?Never!'' saya Whiteomb, steadving himself by the fence. " If you ever catch me saying anything about it, then hang me for a boot jack !" '? I don't see why people cannot do their ooarting by daylight, thereby saving an ex pense of lights, fuel, and forenoon naps." A broakfast Table Remark. Whew! preach that doctrine until you head is gray. and you are as toothless as a new born babe, and still young folks will '-set up" till the stars grow tired of watching, and tho roosters begin to crow! There is a sort of fascination in it, a positive denial to the contrary notwithstanding. An indescribable, undeniable charm?charm in be ing the sole occupant of a front parlor, with nothing to molest or make afraid; the soft drawn up before the shining grate, and the lamp re gulated to a steady blaio that will not eclipse the brightness of eja* or make particularly pleasing in hearing'the last pair of household teet take a bee line departure for tho upper chambers, and feeling that the ever swinging parlor door will remain closed until one of the party cornered chooso to open. Talk of courting by daylight! Think of lam ing one's arm by quick, nasty withdrawals from around a certain waist at the incessant ringing of the bell, or seeing tho puff-combs and curls fly in every direction, by a sound of coming footsteps. Imagine proud lover at the foet of fair laay, puffing forth an eluquont, long avowal, with extraordinary expressions flitting over tho face : and, at the same moment, apuzzled little countenance peering through the folding doors, wondering what makes Mr. M "pray with his evos wide open!" Or more disagreeable still, have -mamma'' open tho door, without the prelude of a rap, of courso, just at the mo ment you have ventured to test the tomperaturo and sweetness of her daughter's lipa. And then, what time in the day could one take ' Not in the forenoon, certainly, wh*n music teachers and fashionable callers aro in vogue; not in the afternoon, when one's senses are stupificd by the eating of a hearty dinner; not on Sunday's, when every body is expected to go church. An hour, when you can pinch Susie's fingers to make her toll who she loves best; look in Susie's hand to see if her fortune runs with yours, and see what letter of the alphabet is formed therein; and kiss her when you please; hug her when you please; and all this when tho ola folks are sleeping, when the sound of foot steps aro scattering in the streets, and there is no one on oarth so near Susio as yourself! Margaret Verne. A Retribi/tivb DubIj.?A certain English gentleman, who was a regular frequenter of the green room of Drury Lane Theatre in the days of Lord Byron's committee, and who always stood quietly on the hearth-rug there, with his back to tho fire, was in his usual place one night when a narrative was related by another gentleman newly returned from the continent, of a barrier duel that had taking place in Paris. A young Englishman?a mere boy?had been de spoiled in a gaming bouse in the Palais Royal, and charged a certain gaming count with cheat ing him, had gone out with the oount, had wasted his fire, aDd had been slain by tho count under the frightful circumstances of the count's walking up to him, laying his hand on his h?art, saying. "You are a oravc fellow?have you a mother ?" and on his replying in the affirmative, remarked coolly, "I am sorry for her," and blowed hid victim's brainsout. The gentleman on the hearth-rug paused in taking a pinch of snuff to hear this story, and observed with great placidity, "I am afraid I must kill that rascal. " A few nights elapsed, during which the green room hearth-rug was without him. and then he reappeared precisely as be fore. and incidentally mentioned, in the cours^ of the evening, "Gentlemen, I killed that ras cal !" lie had gone over to Paris on purpose, had tracked the count to the same gaming house, had thrown a glat?s of wine in his face, in the presence of all the company assembled there, and told him that he was oome to avenge his young compatriot?and had done it by nutting the oount out of this world, and comiDg nack to the hearth-rug as if nothing had happenod. Household H ords. Not Ban.?Four professional gentlemen, the other night, drove several miles up the river to au eligible spot for bathing. The night was fine, they were in fine spirits, and having left their clothes in tho carriage, were shortly laving their fine persons in tho river, with sensations peculiarly fine. So absorbed were they in the pleasures of the river bath, that they had wandered some distance, when one of thein ex claimed. "The horse is running off!" They ran. but the horse would not stop; for though be had nothing in the carriage but their clothes, he felt under the imperative necessity of con veying them home! It was about one o'clock, when the servant of one of the gentlemen heard "massa's carriage coming." and went out to put it up. What was his horror to find no massa in the carnnge, but only certain suits of clothes! With chattering teeth he ran to inform missis that ma*.sn was murdered or drowned. Missis sagaciously surmised the truth, and despatched him back with the carriage. After a half hour's drive. Sambo distinctly saw a ghost ahead, of whose fleihy nature he was suspicious. The apparition now swiftly and stealthily approach ed, till nearly opposite, when it sprang from the roa*lside and grasped the horde's head, say ing, '-Whoa'." Sambo was glad it was massa, and the two returned to the disconsolate party They were in bed?the river bed?profoundly debating whether it were better to await the doubtful return of the carriage, or abash the vir gin moon by running to their several places of abode, at the imminent risk of being knocked d>wn by a wat<htan. The carriage relieved them; and having dressed, they sped to their anxious wives in great glee, and with many mu tually exchanged oaths that not a syllable of the night's adventure should be breathed to a hu man being?least of all to a reporter for a news paper.?iV. Louis Dtmurrat. How to Extbrtai* CornTRir Coi'sihr.? There is a certain well known wag in this city (who??o wit exudes at every pore, and whose name, if we dared mention it, would suggest a thousand funny anecdotes,) who recently " set the table in a roar,'' by relating to tho company his "shift" when "hard up to entertain a couple of country oousins. These greenhorns came "down to York" to sec the "lions," and called on their cosmopolitan relative to " show "e'n round." Among other notable places, they expressed a special desire to visit Greenwood Cemetery. But the way was too long for the osinopolitan cicerone to think of footing it; and feeling in his pockets, he found he hadn't change enough even to put the party through in an omnibus (including drinks.) So walking uowu Broadway, the party took up a station in front of St. Paul's Church, and waited for a funeral. Presently that " sable omuibus which never brings a passenger back" appeared, when Cosmopolitan and his cousins put on their longest faces, jumped into the last empty hack, anu visited Greenwood Cemetery, without even being obliged to pay the ferriage. The party returned in high spirits, and took a hearty lunch of clams and l>eer, which sent one of the cousius to the Hospital, and the other to his grave within the week.?N? Y. Minor.

Oolongs, amoe last December, haa been fifteen cents per pound; and Young Hyson Teas, of low and medium grades, have experienced an advance of one huudred per oent. over last season's closing prioes. "It will thus be seen that th? strong and rapid advance in the tea market haa been the result of * short aupply and active demand ; hut when it isoon aidered that we may hear at any moment of the en tire suspension of shipments at Shanghai, and. in fact, that, as soon as a sufficient force from England arrives at the seat of war, all live ports of entry in China, will probably beplaoed under strict blockade, it would not be surprising to see Teas at a much lusher figure than they have yet attained."
