Hetel Green. Esq . famishes Porter # Spirit of th* Times with the following description of Bob Grant's courtship Bob ww a queer fellow, and rather green withal, and what was still worse, very bashful when among the ladies. One day, I 1*"^ a lecturing about his stupidity?told him it wchsId never do?that he was rapidly approach ing that period when he would be looked upon as an old bachelor, and be despised by all the gentler sex I saw it made a deep impression en him. so I went on : 14 You had better drop those old bachelor no tions B<?b, and get yoa a wife, before it ife eter nally and everlastingly too late!'" Bob blushed deeply?looked inlall directions, to see that no third person was in bearing, and then said ; ??To tell yoa the truth. Areh. I have been thinking something about the iaatt?r; but who Is that I could get to hare me V' l " Pshaw ! you are talking nonsense now." said I. ''There are plenty of them, if you would only scrape up courage enough to ask them For iftstauce, there's Mell Stinstfto?diow would she suit ?" Sho d suit to a T, Arch. But you don't pretend to say I could get Hell; do you ?? Get Mell' Why, yes; certainly I do ; and would not be afraid to bet a hundred dollars ou it, if you'd only try," said I. This was a new idea to Bob. and he was tickle 1 almost to death with it. After thiuking a m)tnent, during which time his face was il Hminared with one of his broadest grins, he ventured to ask me how I would proceed, if I were in his place and wanted to get Mell. I gave him full direotions. after whioh he started home as happy as a jaybird, promising to go and p?c Mell the very next Saturday night. Bob was as good as his word. Saturday night came, ami he went over to old man Stiu fon s. Mell was at home, and, guossinz his business. ruade hereelf very agreeable. Bob s courage raised buy por cent.; and so. as soon as the folks had retired, he commenced his first courtship. To begin, he found a disagreeable task ; but when ouce the ice was broken he felt like a new creature Mell smiled so bowitoh ingly upon him. and said so many charming things. Never before had he known hours to fly ?o rapidly, or moments to be spent so pleas antly. Who could wonder at It? for Mell would lean her pretty head down on hi? shoul der when he joked her about her beaux, or about getting married. Oh, what a dear crea ture he soon began to think .she was * H iw he almost cursed himself for having passed so much of his life in ignorance of such Miss. Before Bob bad scarcely time to think, and long before he had como to the point the old clock struck twelve, and Mell roinindod him that it was time to retire. "But I have not told you all I wish/' said he. *' Tou can come again next Saturday night," ?he replied, with a most fascinating smile. This was capital. Permission to come a^ain ' He agreed to retire. Mell told him where he could sleep; and then, as is the custom in some of the Western States, brought a pot of warm water that be might wash Lis feet. The pot was an old-fashioned one?big at the bottom and little at the tojn?so very little at the top. that Bob viewed it with some misgivings, leet it should refuse to admit his feet. Not teeling willing toeall Mell'# attention to the enormous sue ot these named articles, he hauled off his ?hoes, and with one desperate thrust, lodged both feet on the bottom of the vessel. Capital luck, thought he. as he sat bathing them. Mell nat near by. waiting for him to get through, that she might remove the pot. At length, the clock ?true* one Bob did not seem to notice it. but mi with both 1??? in the pot. apparently in a brown study. '?It is one o clock." said Mell, by way of a hint ?? Vet. mam.*' aaid Bob, but still kept on with his bathing 1 wo. and then three, were bounded from the old bell, still Mr. Grant paid no attention to it, but maintained his position in ailence. appa rently resolved to bAthe his feet all night. Mell'a patience finally wore out, and she said, arising from her chair : *? Mr Grant, you can retire when you choose I am going to bed." liold on '" said Bob, '* hold on a minute. What's the price of this here pot'" '? What do you mean? she aoked, vastly as tonished. ?*I mean, by thunder' I'm a goin' to break this pot: and I d like to know the price of it." "rather! father!" screamed Mell, 'Tome hare, quick! Mr. Grant s gone mad! Quick' quick! ' In an instant, the old man was with them, nerved and prepared for a desperate stru^^le. How sadly disappointed ! Instead of finding Mr Grant a raving maniac, as he had expect ed. he found him sitting very quietly, with both feet fast in the pot. The warm water had Caused them to swell, so as to become immova ble By the united off >rts of the three, he was at length extricated ; but no words could in duce him to remain till morning, lie started for home forthwith Bob Grant is now an old man. as well as my self. and not more than three weeks ago, he told me that this was his iir^t aud last court ship. lie never could scrape up courage enough to go back THE MAN WITH A Ul.NDLE.

The followingoircumstances happened in Ce dar Co., Iowa: ^ y,Jun8 man be.ngout on a courting expedition came late on Sunday evening, and, in order to keep his secret from his young ac quaintances, determined to be at home bright and early on Monday morning Mounted on his horse, dressed in his fine white summer pants, and other fixiyis in proportion, he arrivos at the residence of his inamorata, where he was kindly received and his horse properly taken care of, wing turned into the pasture for the night The night passed away, and three o'clock in the morning arrived. Three o'clock was the time tor him to depart, so that he might arrive at home before his comrades were stirring. He sal lied forth to the pasture tooatoh his horse; but here was a difficulty?grass high and loaded wun dew. Toveuture in with white pantaloons on would rather take eut the starch and lead to bis detection. It would not do to go in with his white unmentionables, so be quickly made his resolve. He carafully disrobed himself of his valuable "whites" and placed them in safety on the fence while Tie gave ebasc with uu sereoned pedals through tho wet grass after the mi?e. Returning to the fence where he had eafelv suspended his lilly white unmentionables?O' Si'*5", rt*/. ?'*** met his eyes' I he field into which his horse had been turned was not only a - horse pa?tnre," but ' calf pas ture. too and the naughty calves attracted bv the white flag on the fence. had betaken them" solves to it, and calf like, had eaten them up ! only a few well chewed fragmentsof this owe valuab.e article of the wardrobe now reasain iT?1v7 *f0W !'hrwi,-ja?t sufficient to indicate what they once had been ? What a pickle thi^ whs for a nice young man t'? be in ! It was now near daylight and the farmers were up and about, and our hero far from home with no covering for bis-traveling apparatus." It woul.l not do to go hack to the house of hid lady love, neither could he go to town in that plignt. i here was only one resource left him, and that w as to (?ecrot? himself in the bushes un til the next night and then get homo under cover of the darknoss. 116 remu'ned under the protection of the bushes for some time, and it may he im agined that his feeling* towards the calf kind were not of the most friendly character; but ere long, his seclusion was destined to be in truded upon By and by. the boy,, who had been out to feed the calves, returned with the remnants of the identioal white garment which adorned the lower limbs of their lato visitor They were mangled and torn to shreds ! An in quest was immediately held over them gome awful fate had befallen the unfortunate young ?an- -*"e neighbors were summoned to search ror the mangled corpse, and the po.?-?e with all speed sot out with dogs and arms. The pas ture was throughfy scouted, and then the adja cent thickets, when lo! oar hero was driven out trom his lair by the keen scent of the dogs uil safe, alive and well, minus the hntn. Au explanation then easuod at the expense of our hero, but he was successful in the end, and married the lady, and is now living com fortably in one of the flourishing little towns of Iowa The Apsl.t Horse?The following story is told in connection with the Celebrated palace of the Duke of Wellington : It is said that as George II. was riding on horseback one day in Hyde Park, he met an old *?!dier who had fonght sith him in the battle of Dettingen; and witn the soldier he entered in to free discourse. After talking together for some time, he asked the veteran what he could do tor aim Why, please your majesty, said the soldier, my wife keeps an apple-stall on a bit of waste ground as you enter the Park, and if your majesty will please to mako us a "runt of it, we might build a little shed and improve our trade. The request being a very moderate one. was at once granted. In a little time the old apple stand woman prospered greatly, for t.ie situation was a good one for the purpose, and she carried on a very profitable trade In the course of years the old soldier died, and the Lord Chancellor, who wsj looking round for a suitable lot of ground where he might build a mansion fixed his mind urmn this very spot. The old woman was sadly alarmed when she saw her shed being torn down, and preparations made to occupy the ground with a stately man sion. and fhe went to her son. who was an at torney s clerk, to consult with hiui as to the courtj she ought to take. The son was shrewd enough to see at once tho advantage that might be gained by remaining quiet until the mansion should be completed. No Sooner was the house finished, than the son waited on the l,ord Chan caller to complain of the tre?pa?s cimmitted on hi3 mother'a property a id 'oc'a:m anao ma ise for the injury she had sustained. When tho Chancellor saw the claim was undeniable, he directly offered a few hundred pounds by way of compensation ; but this was promptly refused, as the old woman, advised by her son. would not settle the affair on such easy terms. A ground rent of four hundred pound# a year was finally ugrocd to ; and it is sjiid that the Apsley House pays that amount to this day, to the descendants of the old apple woman.

' Marbles first," said Jem. "D'ye think I moan tooheatye? say!" ex olaimed T?>ui, indignantly.
