CT SINGLE COPIES ONF. CENT. A SOFT PLACE. Away up in the mountain*, whero moat men arc honestor than their shadow? aro long, and are not afraid of themselves nor the dark. Tim Winking s uncle, an old bachelor. lived. See him yonder on a goods box, on the corner, in the sunshine. expiating to a small squad of fel lows ujton matters and things in general, with an unimpeachable shirt-collar, his distinction, an elevate I brow, a winking lid, a wicked eye, and a gracious mouth; emphasizing occasion ally with a pound of his walking cane upon the pavement, and straightening his shirt-collur as final on the subject in question. " Take a seat, Tim. ?*n the box with me." ?aid ne, after the rest of the party had strolled away ; "it's pleasant here. I was down to see the widow, yesterday, Tim, and she gave me backb one for dinner. By the way. widow Ida Liza Bungling is a nice little, sweet little, pretty little love of a lady , rosy, round and ndieksome; plump as a plum, lively as sunshine, bright as her own eye, sharp, quick, and keen , as lovely asplue veins set ou lily rose color, and blood bounding full of life and spirit through them, could make her. Touch her hand, and 'twill make the tingling blood go galloping through you; her step like a fawn s. nor waist like a fairy's, sun shine ia her face, and joy all over her, so charming i? the little widow Ida Lizv " I was dowu to see the widow, yesterday," said Tim's uncle, *? and she gave me back-bono for dinner I went down rather early in the morning: we chatted, and run on. she going out occasionally to see to things till dinner was ready, when she helped me graciously to back* lionet. Now I thought that. Tim. rather favor able I took it as a symptom of personal ap probation, because everybody knows I love nack-bones. and I flatter myself that she cooked them on purpose for mo. So I grew particu larly cheerful, and I thought I could see it in her too. So after dinner, while sitting by the the widow, I fancied wo both felt sorter com fortable like?I know I did. I felt that I had fallen over head ears and heart in love with her, and I imagined, from the way she looked, s'ae hail fallen teeth and toe-nails in love with me. She appeared just for all tho world like she thought it was a coming, that I was going to court her. Presently. I couldn't help it. I I laid my hand softly on her beautiful shoulder, and I remarked, when I placed it there, in my blandest tones. Tim. for I tried to throw my whole ami into the expression. I remarked then, with my eyes pouring love, truth and fidel ity right into her, " Widow this is the nicest, softest place, I ever had my hand in all my life." " Looking benevolently at me. and at the same time Bushing a little, she said, in winning meltiag tones of Heron. ?' Doctor, give me vour hand, and I'll put it in a much softer $>lace." 4' In a moment, in a rapture. I consented, and taking my hand, she gently, very gently. Tim. and quietly laid it on my ZieaJ?and burst out into a laugh that Miss Heron knows nothing about?it's ringing in my ears yet." 44 Now. Tim. I havn't told this to a living soul but ^ou. and, by jinks! you mustn't: but I couldn t hjld it any longer, so I tell you, but mind, it mustn't go any further." HOMEOPATHY. Dr. Hirchmann. a disci pre of Hahnemann, has addressed a long letter to the Liverpool Jour nal. in reply to some strictures upon the home opathic* system, which were quoted in that pa 1-er. We quote from it a few paragraphs : 44 I might go almost all through the nosologi cal catalogue, and furnish illustrations of the truth of the homoepathic principle ; suffice it. boMuver. tor the present purpose, to adduco a few examples, only, on the many medicines ca pable of producing an affection similar to the c tses they oure or relieve. A weak solution of lunar caustic, or nitrate of silver, will greatly relieve an inflamed eye, which, in strong solu tion, will violently irritate a sound one ; this, though hoiuoepathic, is one of the most popular applications at the various eye infirmaries ?? Alcohol, largely diluted and externally ap plied. will relieve headache; when taken large ly inside will cause it, as too many practically kuow. '? Ae-nrite. which in large quantities, disturbs the circulation, wbeu so disu T *>d by disease, will in small doses he found most tranquili/ing. 44 Belladonna, in full repeated doaes. acts vio lently upon tho throat, in small doses, under similar ciruumstanco*. speedily cures fhc same plant, in large doses, will produce a scarlet rash, difficulty of swallowing, nausea, rednnss and swelling of the face, deliriums, convulsions, Ac.; and, accordingly, has very properly become u popular remedy, iu some varieties of epidumie h arlatina. and to a lnr'C extent it is preven tive of that fearful and iatnl scourge. 4' Ipe-acuanha. in largo quantities, distresses nnd aickeus the jtomaeh?in small doses, soothes and allays vomiting. The influence of this root in exciting fits of difficult breathing, resemb ling asthma, is beyond all doubt, as is also its great utility in the relief of this and other af fections of the respiratory organs. "Nux vomica, (and necessarily strychnine, with which, as well as coculus iridic us, publi can* and sinner^ take the lil.erty of sophisticat ing (liters Sort* of liquors,) cause spasms, indi gestion, bilious disorders, sickness, and retch ing. convulsions, (tetanic.) obstinate constipa tions, hemorrhoids, headache, giddiness, busi ness on both sides of the road, as well as in the gutter*, and the like; given in extremely minute quantities it aflords signal relief in almost all these aliments. 44 C ?rrosive sublimate largely corrodes and ulcerates the intestinal mucous membrane; in a similar con lition, from dysentery, proves cu rative. 41 Cantharides. in full repeated doses, causes urinary affections ; in small and repeated doses allays the like disordered states, to which those passages are liable. ??

Ac." Doc TOR i *o Wish?Mr Musgrave, in his acoount of a visit to Champagne. says of a wine manufacturer. Monsieur L , of kheims : He here pointed oat nine each* lying in the court yard, containing a ton of white sugar lrom the I-ie of B <urbon, every pound of which cost ninepence Hereupon I requested him to show me s^me of tho genuine liquor?in the state, that is. the state in which it leaves the yrtnotr after the regular fermentation process, and before sweetening syrup is added He trcseully selected a buttle from some bins at Laud. opened it. and poured out a glassful. A iu .re unpalatable drink, under the denomina tion of wine, 1 never tasted. It was like .^uu tcrne mixed with wormwood. ?? Now,' said Monsieur L , "I have taken ?>ut two glass*." from this l*?ttle Here is a bot tle of sweetened syrup, from which I will fill up the deficiency you have ju?t seen created." 1 witnessed this filling up; and ho then handed the bottle t? a eellerman. who oorked and strung it in my prtsence. ??That." said he, ?'will, at no distant date, become a bottlo of the priuiest quality It is the Verzenay gr owth." A' dinner at the house of Monsieur L , cn the same day. the following scene occurred : ?Ant uow. aaid mine host.

A correspondent of the Abingdon Democrat, writing from Walnut Hill, Lee county, Ya., who is, ad the Democrat assures its reader?. " a gentleman in whom implicit eonfidenco rany bo placed," gives the following account of the icilkiug of a monster reptile in that country, lie says: About three weeks ago. five men went to gather whortleberries in the mountainous parts of flarlan county, Kentucky, and in their tra vels came to a small branch, at the foot of a steep ridge, where they discovered a smooth beaten path, or rather slide, that led from the branch up the ridge. Curiosity tempted them to know its meaning, and they followed tho trail to the top of the ridge, where, to their as tonishment. they found about an acre of ground perfectly smooth and destitute of vegetation, near the centre of which they discovered a small sink or cave, large enough to admit a barrel. They concluded to drop in a tew stones, and presently their ears were saluted with a loud rumbling sound, accompanied with a rattling noise, and an enormous serpent made his ap pearance. blowing and spreading his head, and Lis forked tongue protruded. The men were struck with wonder and affright. aud suddenly tho atmosphere was filled with a smell so nau seating that three out of lite five wero taken very sick ; the other two. discovering the con dition of their companions, dragged them away from that abode of death. About ten foot of the snake had to thoir judg ment made its appearance, when they hurried home and related what they had seen to their neighbors. The next day were mounted some ten of the hardy mountaineers, armed with rifles, deter mined to destroy the monster. On approaching within one hundred yards of the dwelling?? his snakeship, their horses suddonly became restive, and neither kindness nor force could make them go any nearer. Tho men dismounted, and hitching their horses, proceeded on foot, with rifles cocked, to the mouth of the cave. They hurled in three or four large stones, and fell back some fifteen steps, when tho same j noise was heard as before, and out came the dreaded reptile, ready as his looks indicated to j crush the intruders. About the same length of ! the snake had appeared from tho hole, when j eight or ten bullets went throngh his head, and, as the monster died, he kept crawling out, until twenty feet of that huge boa lay motionless on the ground. It was a Rattlesnake, with 2-3 rattles;?the first was four inches in diameter. I the rest decreasing in size to the last. With difficulty the men dragged him home, and his skin can now be seen by the curious, in Harlan county. Obttino User To It By Dbcrrks.?Some where about here, writes a Southern corres pondent. lives a small farmer of such social habits, that his coming home intoxicated was once no unusual thing. His wife urged him in vain to sign the pledge. j '? Why. you see," he would Pay. " I will sign it afier a while, but 1 don't like to break right off at once ; it ain't wholesome. The best way is to get used to a thing by degrees, you know/' '? \ ery well, old man," his helpmate would say, ?? s<?e if you don't fall in a hole onoof there ! davs, while you can't take enre of yourself an I nobody near to help you out.'" Sure enough, as if to verify the prophecy, as he returned home drunk one day, he fell into a shallow well, and after a deal of useless scram bling. he shouted for the " light of his eyes"' to come and help him out. i "Didn't I tell you so." said tho good soul, showing her cap frill over the parapet; "you'vo got into a hole nt last, and it is lucky 1 am in hearing, ot you would have drownod. Well,'' she continued after a pause, letting down the bucket, "(take hold." And up he came, higher at each turn of the windlass, until the old lady's grasp slipping from the handle, down he went to the bottom again. Thisoccurring more than onco, tuado the temporary occupant of the well suspicions '?Look hero!" he screamed in fury, at the last splash, 44 you're doing that on purpose?1 know-you are!'' '? Well, now. I amV responded his old woman tranquil<y, while winding him up once u*>ro ??Don't you remember telling uie it's best to et used to things by degrees . I'm afraid if 1 ring you right up of a sudden you wouldn't find it wholesome 1 The old fellow could not help a cliucklo at the application of his principle, and protested he would sign the pledge on the instant, if she would lift him fairly out. This she did. and packed him off to sign the pledge, wet as he was. " For you see." she added very emphatical ly, " if you ever fall into the ditch again, I'll Ituve you thar?I will!" Plea run Delicacy-.?Harper's Weekly is Somewhat scandalized at the prodigal display of articles for females ranking up along Itroad way, and compassionating the reeling of those who have to *hop for them, is earnest in recom mending that female clerks should serve them This is a reform wo desire much to see, for it will open a field of employment remarkably well adapted to a woman, and monoj>oliied by young ineu without right or reason. Certainly, it seems appropriate that, when a lady goes out to purchase njnyo/t.or a "hustle,"' or a pair of French corsets, aud other mysterious essentials t<> aw.?!! developed figure, the articles should bo exrubited by one of her own sex. She can hardly help turning a^ide when a dapper young m;in holds up to view a full blown skirt, or run his lingers between tho hoops and links ot a skele ton, or slaps an inflated crinoline to show its elasticity. It should not be for him todi.'elose such feminine revelation The things are sus pended everywhere about the shop, too, and he is in danger of being extingnished by thoir fa' ling over his head, while ho skips hero and there to accommodate the customer. It is the same thing if a lady wants blockings, the shopman seems to understand all proportions, and assures her he considers them iust the right sizo. A lit tle padding, or a braid of hair, or a set of curl?, or a bottle of dye, or n box of face powder, may be wanted, and tho difficulty is still the same, a brisk, curled and whiskered individual steps forward with a smile to receive the lady's order, and in a conf de iti 1 tone. j?erhaps, Venturis a suggestion which would have como with a grace from her dressing maid or mantua maker ! 2s ay, more, it is likely that this whiskerando rany have been hor partner at tho last dance at Sar atoga. or may have accompanied her party in to the surf at Koekawny, or may have ogled hor at the Opera Fund Hall! What must it now c >st her delicacy to find her destitution revealed to him, and to Lave |?ointed out?aye, and to roceive at his hand, tho means of removing, or { rather of disguising it from the public eye ' Tho artifi 'es and devices of fashion to supply nature s dt ticiencies should be veiled from mas culine eyes Perhaps there is not a shopping lady in the city x?'ho has not fretted over this difficulty; and we suggest that from this timo ? forward the requirements of drees be furni-hed | altogether by feminino hands.?S. Y.Krprexi. Th* Haxo of it?Old Judgo S., a consider able tariuer of F county, Vermont, bought a new scythe for his son Jim. and set him to work in the meadow, with tho rest of the hay makers. "It don't work right," said Jim to the bon ! ored ? parient." after cutting two or three clip". "What is the luatter with it enquired the Judge "ft don't hang right on the snaitb," said ; Jiin, stopping awhile to adjust tho scythe anew. Scythes often plague the mowers in this way, at first; and Jim's scythe was particularly ob stinate. So the old gentleman tinkered over and over again. '?It don't hang any better," said Jim, plain tively. "Then hauglt to suit yourself," said the old J ud^o. '?So 1 will." said Jiin. and hanging it upon a trm, he lazily retired from the field.
