ILTHINGLK COPIES ONE CENT. WHEN THAT NOTE WAS DUE. A man in Boeton (of course) was sorely per secuted by an avaracious business acquaintance, to pacify whom be was oblige. 1 to *' settle and not wishing to par over a few hundred in cash, ha drew up a note obligating himself to discharge tbe account after a specified date of time The creditor, who was noted for his fjLi njr principle, wtu not, in justice, really entitled to the money, but when thirty days after date were expired, he anxiously presented the note for payment. The debtor, instead of meeting it. replied : ?? The note ia not yet due. sir.7' "But it ia. though It reads ' thirty days aftor data. I promise to pay' so and so. and thirty-one day* have elapsed since the date thereof ; and so" ? '? Idon'tcare if thirty-one years haro elapsed aince the date of the note, 1 shall conten t for Its Immaturity." auswered tbe debtor, inter rupting the not very go.?l-humored note-holder, who su?>n mad? his exit, flamming the street' door alter him. muttering inoohurently about law, judgrueut, executions. .1 <*. In a few day* both parties were before a ma gistrate. who. on concluding the investigation, proclaimed that he must certainly award ? jadgment" against the debtor for tho lull amount of the note, and the cost of the prosecu tion besides. ?4 And what then ?" inquired tho defendant of tbe judge. 441 shall issue an ' execution,' if the plaintiff desires it," returned his hoaor. ?4 To be sure?I want one immediately." bawled the plaintiff, whose countenance reveal ed his determination to allow d<> mercy, as he urged his way a* near tbe judge a* possible. ?'

"Insolent!" exclaimed the judgu, choking with rage. 4* Will you oblige me by carefully spoiling and reading the first line in that valuable doc- i ment." ur^el tho defendant, disregarding tiie anger of the magistrate, and dirocting bis at tention to the note that lay before bun. The judge looked at the note and then at the defen dant, but probably thinking it was best to take it coolly, proceeded to do as requested, aud read aloud, in a very lucid style : " Thirty days after date I prom " '? Stop!"' shouted the defendant, ' you don't rand it ri^ht " 44 I do. ' was the judged resj?>nse. 4' You don't!" returned tho defendant; *' I thought you couldn't spell." The judge was now failing over with rage, and smote the desk before him so violently with his clenohed hand as to cause those who stood about him. including tbe expectaat plaintiff to retreat a few paces in double quick time " Keep your temper, judge, or we shall be obliged to have the case transferred to unvtber court, where tbe magistrate understands the art and mystery of spelling words of on? sylla ble. and don't make a tool of himself by kick ing up a row and smashing office furniture. There, you may keep your seat, and Veil those present what the first line of that note says," said the defendant with a coolness that sur prised the audience and puzzled tbe judge. Having again glanced at the document, and appearing to detect something that had until that moment escaped his perception, the judge proceeded to read : ? Thirty 'lays after tenth I promise to pay?" ' Right'" exclaimed the defendant; **you can spell, I see ' 4- Tnis note is not due. gentlemen, until thir ty days after death" proclaimed the magis trate . 41 the case is accordingly dismissed^ and the court adjourned uutri to-nior row morning. "What"' exclaimed the plaintiff, 44 am I tfcus fxded * Villain The unexpected and ludicrous conclusion of the suit threw the whole assembly, save the un lucky plaintiff, into an uumerious fiiof merri ment, which having subsided, they separated and dispersed The note is not duo yet. BROIGHAM AND UIKK. Lord Brougham, iu his address the other day before the Mechanic* Institute at Manchester used the following languago . " Tbe first duty of a man is to provide forhis own indepeudeuce by his own werk, and not either to amuse himself or indulge in any gratification?not even in that m >re than inno cent, most sacml gratification,of assuaging his tl^rst fir knowledge?until be has done hu* day's Work, and done that wbi<*h it is his boun deu duty as well as bis highest interest to do, work with his own hands far the prevision <n himself and his family. And when I talk of working men. I am myself, and have boon all tuy life, a working man?and as long as I am blessed with health enough to continue, even at my advanced tune ot life, 1 shall coutinue to labor; and I shall never henceforth, ?by more than I have hitherto done, partake of any relaxation, not even in gratifying my thirst for knowledge, until I have earned the riirht to do it by having done iny day's work. There are other rules as to whi-'h I would allow no com promise, no middle course nuatever. and they are the maxim* which ought to preside over a man s whole employment of his time. The one is, to do one thing at a timo only ; the aw xt. is never to pa* '?# nit tomorrow what yOTTCan do to-day and the third, ft' ways to finish one thing before you beglu another. A very great and most eelebratedmau in Holland?De Witt ?was once asked h<?w it happened that he got through -o much business and of such varied kind, for he wx* not only a great states man and e minister, but also a most eminent mathematician and a literary man; and his an swer was that it was by two rales which he always observed?to do one thing only at a time and never to put off till to-morrow what he could do to-day, These were his golden rales I knew a great statesman, nout hu mutt, uf another country, who used to say, on the other band, bis principle was 4 Never to do fa day what you could put off till to-morrow.' And when I cried oat against this as a most J hereto fox political doctrine, be gave me hah'-a- t dozen instances in which much advantage had occurred from his continual procrastination of measures that were pressed upon Liui These were e?rtaiuly the exceptions to the rale. I admit that be urged his perverse maxim rather by way <>f pio&aantry than anything else, and I think it was ao rw?mmen lation of it that he could produce ?<? few instances in its favor." We were at first disposed to thiuk that the statesman of an-.ther c >untry was Aaron Burr, who is tho author of an aphorism of which the one qa>'ted by Brougham reminds us Buir used to say, 4* I never put off till to-morrow what I can do to-day. and I never come to a conclusion upon anything to-day. which I can pot ?fl till to-morrow '' It is difficult to say which of these rules of action betray most sa gacity., j | A Bit or Koua-iifc-?Ten years ago a yoong Englishman ran away from London where he was highly connected carne down to Liverpool, took a ship that was up for New Orleans, and in due course of time landed in this city with a light heart in his breas*. and between or two hundred pounds id Bank of England notes in his pvket He had becu a m ntras snjet at home. and. what between wine and women, had managed to squander a large fortune, besides involving himself seriously in debt. He had taken the precaution to provide himself with letter^ of introduction to respectable parties in this city, aud by this means he soon formed tbe acquaintance of a young lady, who, by the death of her father, had iust been left sole heiress tr> a large estate. A warm attachment soon snrung up betweeu tbe two. and oar young Englishman. one fine day. made tbe lady a formal tender of bis band and heart. The an swer be received was tbe fallowing: " I love y?u end will marry you, bat only ou these dri^nT' 9^ ?eW ?Dly ? Ut Y?? mUgt 3t?P drinking. 2d. \oumust pay your debts: 3d. \oni have squandered one fortuno. you must f *? an<1 niake another." The lover en treated, but the lady wai inexorable. Just then the gold fever broke out, and our hero de termined, without loss of time, to try hi* for tune on the shores of the Pacific ocean II* sat down, wrote a letter to the lady, in which no announced his determination, assured ber of his unalterable affection, and begged her to be tait..tul to him, and without further adieu, started for Now York, and took ship for San * rM1c'?o via the Cape In California, he led for soma time a wandering, dissolute life, and finally joined the unfortunate expedition whioh Ka.usset de Buulbon fitted out for the conquest of Sonora It was known that he was among the few who escaped to tell the fate of their he roic leader, but nothing further was hoard of kirn or his whereabouts until last Saturday, when aAtriend ot hi* in this city received a tel grapio dispatch from him, stating that he was among the fifty persons saved from the Central America, and brought into Norfolk bv the barque Ellen. The dispatch further stated that the writer had lost $150,000 in g-?ld. wh ch was in the hands of the purser, but that it was luckily inured for it? full value in a London office. Y\ e learn that tho ladv to whom he was engaged is Mill unmarried, and it would not be strango if, in the course of human events, we should bo called upon to indite a paragraph with that fashionable heading " Marriage in high Life."?O.

No Change Alley is like it; no other Bourse?110 Rial to. Trinity Church looks down upon it. hko a su^rv.sor but Trinity Church cannot tbrtf.ianiie it. Like a molon growing next to a pumpkin, the Church may have a savor of its neighbor, but Wall street will neror obtain any flavor lroin the Church. The name of Downing street in London is irrevocably associated with diplomacy : so is \V all street with stock-jobbing; but as Downing street is not full of foreign ministers, with faces I aimers ton-ward, neither is Wall street occu pied solely by the members of the Brokers Board. ? Wall street is Cot a long street, though it is ,.a 'on,? A man. without corns. e-?n walk the length of if in fire minutes. Another it lie should keep on, would find him iu the bast Kiver. It is not a wide street. Bid* have been made from curb to curb. Wheels get'lock ed there daily, eepecially near the head of it, and a vast deal of highly ornamentr.1 profanity is done by ?weet-t*mpcred carmen, who. havr? wedged themselves in. seeui to think that. like the poor debtor, they can tirenr themselves out. It is not a handsome street, still there is no thing wooden in it. except, perhaps, the heads of some of the stock-buyers White marble, brown freestone, terra cotta and substantial granite bespeak iu wealth. Here is that wonderfullv intricate building, the Merchants' Excban-o, full of lawyer, insurance and other office? us u dog is of fleas. Near by is the tocu.i in y?oof the ?brokers Board, where many millions of dollars daily "change hands and cross over." while the members cheerfully (speaking in metaphor) balance to their partners." In the rotunda of the ediiice real estate auctioneers are crying as siduously. yet without shedding a tear, over sacrifices or property to an almaa fabulous amount. On the other side of Wall, at the corncr of N assau, and facing Broad street, stand*--na v. it don t stand, but <yt"iM-the Custom-Housc, where there has been so much hard swearing over fraudulent invoices* and political assessments.
