Mr most interesting acquaintance at 'Scon ?ft was a Nantucket "skipper,' who had once Keen chewed np by a whale?hi* surviving to teil the atory. of course, being dimply beennn the dainty leviathan. not liking the taste of him, had dropped the willing mouthful out ng*in upon the clean table-cloth of the ocean. This was forty years ago, and it is a rare in stance. you will allow, of a morsel's proving pleasant company so long after being rejected by a reluctant stomach at sea. I should a-k pardon, however, fdt speaking thus lamiliarly of one of the best specimens of manhood that I ever had the happiness to meet? a s??>?-captain now ifWiis seventy-third year, as tall, straight, vigorona and cheerful at this ad vanced age. a* when -a mate" at twenty-five? one of th" most resj-ectable < itizens of New Ued f..rd at present, and enjoying a comfortable in df pendente from the capture of the whale that it on Id nt eat hiua. and of other whale* who sim ilarly left him unswatloweU. Cut I must give v??u the particulars of the half-rrux*t ication of Capt. Gardiner?who, by the *ay, in addition to hU singular experience as a mouthful, has the peculiarity of being tlio son of the first rkti* mill* child born on XantwArt. Newly arrived at the honors of captaincy, our Nan racket skipper was cruising along tlieooaat ??f i*outh America?just off Peru?when there was a cry from the mast-head. " A whale, ho!" The direction was given, the sails trimmed for *he ??vertaking of the monster, and when within a wile, the boata were lowered, each with it* crew of six, the captain himself taking the har i? ?on of the advancing boat ffhieh was to make the assault. Quietly afloat lay the amphibious Shyloek of the sea. (the /er i-athan. 1 take it, is of the tribe of Lrrt.) and. as the swift boat oame within harpooning distance, the inevitable iron, hurled by that strong arm. penetrated to his vital?. Not as usual, however, did the struck monster dive out of sight; but turning, and making straight for his enemies he rolled orer his huge bulk to get a fairer grip, and brought his jaws together upon the boat's prow?the forward halt ot that slight structure. Captain ani all. disappearing like the best part of an app!e-tart in tho munch of a hungry school boy. The remainder of the crew, the helman and four oarsmen, had jumped overboard; and as the whale, with another roll, dived down to die out of sight, he threw up the unswallowed Captain?the relief-boat pulling instautly to the spot and taking thecrushed morsel and the ire swimmers safely from the water. It was the chewed-up right hand of the Cap tain. a* he sat by me at table, which had first excited uiy curiosity?(stimulating the inqui ries which drew from him, at last, this thrilling stjry)?the stump, or what was visible below The coat-sleetv. looking like a twisted rope's end. but still retaining clutch euouzh to carry the chowder-spoon to his mouth. Four of the whale s teeth were driven into him?one enter ing his *kull. a second breaking his collar-bone, a third breaking his arm, and the fourth crush ing his hand?the remainder of his body being ninply squeezed into a jelly. The healing of tne wound in the head left a cavity like the in side of an egg-shell; and, though the hair has grown over it, (hair still brown and thick, with the stubborn vitality of the un-kill-a-ble Nan tucketerJ it tells, after forty years, the size of the tooth that did it. I laid thu ends of my three fingers very Comfortably in the hollow But the after history of this perilous adven ture seem* to me the most remarkable part of it With a orew coruj^jel almost entirely of well-grown boys, and the ship lying becalmed in mid-ocean?six days' sail from any port, even with a fair wind?how was this crushed and mangled sufferer to be doctored and cared for * ?'aptain Gardiner, providentially, though nearly eaten up, retained full possession of his ?eases His first mate wa* young, but a very ?mart lad. and possessed. fortunately, of Yan kee aptitude?good ?t everything ; and with toe aii ot the sufferer s directions, he d d the w?rk of a surgeon The Captain ordered hiin first to make splinters, and then to set bis bro ken arm?the collar-bone being left to heal itself, unset (as it remains to this day, without perceptibly affecting his erect *ha|?e or the ac tion ot bis chest.) and the other wounds being h indaged in the usual way. lie was then laid ?n the cabin floor, and with fans made of the leaves of the log-book, ho was kept as cool a* was any way p >s<ibl?i?tor it was the hottest of ^'?uth Sea weather Feeling, however, that hi* life depended on the exercise of his strong will, he g-*ve orders that he should, by no po# -?ibi.ity. t,e allowed to sleep over five minutes at atiiae And. with this vigilant watch kept ut. for six days, the -hip, (navigated by his di r<~ti .n? as he lay on tne cabin floor; entered the port of Peru. A boat sent immediately on shore, brought -ft the Emperor s physician who. on l??oking at lb* pro?tr.tte man and examining his wound* only that they should msnd for a coot fe?9r?r Other proscription, the medical man ???light, would be usclcas, as death was evi dently ao cloae at hand But the captain vat w a different opinion. 44 A physician for the ?vol is very well at proper time and place." ?uilhe; -but, at present I want one for the My?and I happen to know of one who will cure me I' so happened that?in a previous touch at 'tis* same port?Captain Gardner had heard '? the sick mate of an American vessel who had been left behind by hi* shipmate*, and to wh^m. a? a charity to a suffering countryman, he then offered a pa-sago home The man's oe?sage of reply was. that he fortunately ''^d in no need oi the kindness, as he was a.Bner CV? * Spanish d'>rtor who lived * Pura. % village back in the mountains,) and ^b. bad taken him to his house and treated b :?? liae his own child.

CALLING THE "LOGIES " It is no uncommon practice for younz law yers. "out West. to manufacture sport at the cxpens* of Deputy Sheriffs, before the a ?r are fully initiated into the mysteries of ? f OA'i'ig An amusing in.-tanco of this kind occurred in Judge '* Court, not nmny miles distant from this city, on .Saturday While our most worthy Sheriff was busily engag-d in orying off a partition sale, for the division of property, at the front door of the Court House, his Deputy was taking lesions W?umn,?'iS?"r0,lj Maggaire,7' at the . Tnis, it seems, was a mere pre liminary joke, to test the stentorian capabili ties ot the lungs of the obliging Deputy?not generally overheard and appreciated?and, to perfect the fun, he was handed a slip of paper, made out in due form, and requested to sum won the parties?consisting of "John Log," ? p f *1Mon A- Log." "Di A Log." 4-I ro Log" and " Cat A. Log/' 8 The deruty summoned each member of the family of 'Logs. ' by distinctly calling his name three times, at the west door of the C mirt House, and. when he has about comple ted, the bar was in such a titter aa to interfere seriously, with the business of the Court. One ot the bar was gravely discussing "amotion"' b-fore his honor, the Judge, and not appre hending the cause of the merriment, was some what confused. supposing the amusement waf at his expense. At this juncture, the Judge, owing to the risibilities ef the bar. had his attention with drawn from the gentleman addressing him, overhearing the winding up summons of the Deputy to the last of the " Logs,'' called out : " f>beriff. stop that noise!" The Sheriff started immediately to his feet, and fancying that some interloper was mis on? of his prerogatives, asked : What is that ' and proceeding hurriedly to the ncene of disturbance, where be encountered his Deputy?enquired : ? What the d?1 are you doing?" " Calling the parties"to the suit," answered the Deputy, producing a slip of paper, con L?r?? c?v " ,r"m" }?bn " Calling h?II." said the Sheriff; ? Don't yon know they are making a d d fool of you f . KMeTeri8aii the Deputy, ?? wait awhile and I II get em *Oet thunder"* ejaculated the Sheriff ' 'bey vt> got you ! and returning to the Court room. he. for a few moment*, looked very blue out of the south window ; but bein.' naturally of a very jocular, cheerful temper", be waved the liberty taken with his new Dep uty. and bore the joke with ft becoming phi losophy under such circumstances The Deputy took it ail in good part, statin^ that be bad no objection to the gentlemen en" joying themselves, but would have preferred that ithad not b tu at his expense." Nicblv Domb.?At a cortair. eating house a day or two sine*, a very lean, cadaverous look ing mortal, was so allured hy the inviting ap pearand of a ten pound turkey, all done up in ?fixings, that he unconsciously uttered the ejaculation that he could eat it up in ten min utes " What II you bet you can?" asked a snob, standing at the door The "lean and hungry Cassias" immediately responded "Will you pay for it ? ' - Yes," " Well, then, I'll bet you a drink." " It's a bet," said snob The lean man immediately set to. The choicest part or the fat and savory monster were consumed with a most enviable relish, but upon the ex piration of the fain minutes he fouud himself stuffed up the brim, and the turkey not a third demolished. Kuing very eoolv he acknowled ged that he could'nt go it, and quite as coolly forked over twelve and a half cent* for two whiskey toddies?lost. Snob looked blank upon beiug suddenly struck with the idea that he had been done upin a decidedly cheap package, paid down two and a half dollars for tho turkey, and left his friend enjoying digestion and a prime smoke by the stove, considerable the better for a first rate dinner for a nine pence.?Pitlthui Dupatrh.
