We hava heard an excellent story of a rev erend gentleman, once a citizen of Pittsburg. He was what the ladies called a "dear good man." and the young ansae* "a duck of a fel low." His charity was not confined to those who were hid immediate followers, and in all the private relation* of life he bore the charac ter of an honest and upright man. It is said, however, that he possessed a v olent temper, and when anything disagreeable occurred be haved in a manner by no means clerical. On one occasion, a member of the congrega tion as passionate as himself, reproved him Tor using language in the pulpit highly improper in itself, and altogether unbecoming one pro fessedly devoted to the service of his Divine Master. The clergyman replied that he was governed by his own sense of propriety, and that he would permit no pappy to spaak to him in that manner. To this, a blow was the only reply. A dread ful fight was the consequence, which continued for the s|?ace of thirty minutes, at the eud of which time the layman was compelled to cry, ?? Hold, enough!" The battle ended, and the preacher, with an injured face, walked liomu in triumph News of the quarrel spread like wildfire through the congregation. Old ladies put on their bonnets and ran all over the city to hoar tb* particulars ; fast young men called on the reverend gentleman, complimenting him high ly for having behaved so well, and left him with the assurance of their regard and distin guished consideration. The Sunday following tho church was filled to excels?all anxious to hear tho minister's explanation. People of all ranks, all condi tions. men. women and children, saints and dinners, professors of the manly art of self-de fence. all individuals who uutil that time knc.t not what the inside of a church was made of were assembled there. Just as the great bell struck for the last time, the clergyman entered the church. Deliberate ly he wended his way to tha pulpit, and calmly contemplated the scene before him. The choir sang the psalm commencing with? ?' Bi?*st i< the man who shuns the place Where sinners love to meet." After which the preacher made a short and fervent prayer. He then took his text, and de livered the following address, which was handed to us by a gentleman who wag present : ' Brethren?We are commandod to love our enemies, and to respect those who despitefullv use us It is oar duty to do so. Forgiveness is the finest quality in the christian character. It distinguishes him from all others, and causes him to be looked upon with respect and admi ration. He who is able to forgive an injury, is more than a man. because he rises far above his fellows, and is conscious of possessing parts to which others are strangers. In my short, checkered career, I have always endeavored to overlook every little injury I have received In most instances I have been successful?thus proving that the immortal and the christian arises tar above the mere man. But. my dear brethren, it has not always been the case. Frequently my proud heart and violent pas sions prevail over the command of wisdom and the voice of prudence. A few days since I for got my position and struck an offender I am well aware that we are commanded, whon smitten on the right cheek, to torn the left; and I only think it proper to do so ; but, my brethreo, trJun a man underlain* to r/tve ta oiy keaa, J awi there The sporting characters present gave three terrific yells, which created so much oonfusion that the services immediately conoladed for the day. MISTAKING A LOCALITY. Mr. John Stevens, a spruce counter hopper who goes into fits at the eight of a fellow no' dressed up to the fa.-hiou.ible standard, oame koine to his dwelling, in a nent court in the north part of the city, and discovered a gen tleinan in a dirty drab suit, seated quite cosily <>u his new sofa. Mr. Stevens looked at the individual with a feeling of rising disgust, and perceiving that he was a it anger. addressed him with the appropriate query : ?? Do you wish to sec me, sir ?" " No, I did not, in particular," answered the the other, " but since you are here, sit down and make yourself comfortable.*' I geuerally do, sir, in my own house," an swered Mr. Stevens. '? Your house ' You are drunk," answered the gentlemen in drab ; " now dou't make me laugh, you vagabond?your bouse ! bah >M The nervously delicate dry goods man was struck all in a heap. He was groatly inclined to get angry, but the strarger bad a particu larly navage twiukle in his eye. and was in fact one of the persons whom nervous gentlemen would rather uot get angry with, if they can help it Mr. S. was somewhat relieved by the entrance of his wife. ?Bet-ev,' said the stranger, mistaking Mrs. S for his own spouse, "give that little loafer some cold vittlcs and let him go." Mrs. S. ?tared. '? Dou't be stingy, my love," returned the speaker; "let him have a bit of cold meat and turnips?or whatever you'vo got. You needn't think to get anything to drink here, mister? we arc all teetotalers. ' There was something in the gentleman's air. manner and general appearance which seemed t<> contradict this report, as far as be was con cerned. Mr S. slipped out and brought in a near neighbor ot his. who belongs to the police de partment. " Don't tell ine," said the stranger, in reply to the officer's arguments; -think 1 don't know nay own house' Ain't that my wife? Ain't that her nose, her chin* Blood and thunder! 1 must l?e earned the bluest not to know tbein nut-crackers of hers! Get out, now. will you! Call in after awhile, and 1 will argufy the mat ter all over, from stem to stern." The officor made a signal of forbearance to Mr. 9. The stranger stretched out ou the sofa and was as tight us a top in two minutes. A furniture car was produced, and the stranger, Mr. Jacob Wafkins, was cleared out. It was ? tifti :u!t to persuade him. this morning, that he had mode a mistake. -If it wern't my house," said Jacob, "it was as much like it as one watch box is like another, and as for the woman, I'm blamed if she ain't my Bet over again, that tap-bor> * nose I could have sworn to on a stack of Bibles as high as a rhurch steeple "?PhtfaJr/phin jtf'reury. Jcsr Saved Himself.?A pious old gentle man, one of the salt-of the-carth sort, went out into the field to catch a mare that was wont to bear him to town He iuuvrd on the most ap proved mode lie shook a measure of corn at her; t? dtlude her into the belief that she was glad to get it; but she was not to be deceived I.y any such *|?ecious art. She weuld oorne i.igh. and then dash off again, until the good man was fretted very badly. At last, he |fot her in a corner amon^ aoine briars, and made a dash at her, when she bounded over the wail, and left him sprawling among the bushes. His Christian fortitude gave way at this, and gath ering himself, he cri-jd, "Oh bell ?. The ejaculation m^d bis lip* before be thought; but immediately conscious of ita wickedness, he a??d?"lelujab," and translated the pro fane word into a note of triumph.?iioston h'rssiHf Gazette.

It was during tbe regime of the old count y court system that I chanced to be in Barryton, the then county rite of Washington county, Alabama, (now in Choctaw.) The "county court" was in session, and curiosity prompted me to enter the "Aula Justiciae." Well, in I went. "Twas in the year 18?; Judge Lifter on the bench. (Judging from appearance, the Judge is * descendant ef derm any?lineal, at that.) He is a fat, chuffy old ooon?answers well to the description of Jack Falstaff? pre sides with all the dignity of a Plantagenet? ?fid knows about as much about law as a bull yearling Aikens' (Ala.) Digest, a box of home made tobaoeo. and a gallon-pitcher, about half full (the other half his Honor had belted) of " red-eye," were placed conveniently before him. especially the " bald-face." Quite a number of attorneys and litigants are present. The Judge about "three sheets in the wind," pays but little attention to what is Edng on. At last, the case of Jones vs. Brown called. A tall, good-looking man appears for the plaintiff, J arnes 1) Powers, Esq.,for the de fendant. Both pnrties announce themselves " ready for trial." A jury is empannelled? witness are sworn?the bystanders manifest great interest in the case. It is evident the court is nith the plaintiff and the whisky with all bauds. Witnesses for tho plaintiff aro all exnmined, and his esse is rested?a " prima facie" ease is made out. The defendant brings out hit* proof, and has almost robutted every fact proved by tbe plaintiff?Jim Powers sees it?he hugs close third Stewart <fc Porter, for on it hangs the pocket of his client.

Jim Powers, with a face ra diant with smiles?about tograsp the glittering prize of sueccss?certain of a complete triumph and easy victory, and that the character of his client would be fully vindicated?without em barrassment, rises and begins in a " Mtalatio" strain about the injuries which his unfortunate client has sustained already, and of the great wrong whieh the plaintiff was seeking, " by your verdict, gentlemen of the jury, forever to put on him ttentlemen, look at the testimony, and then fee how the counsel for the plaintiff with the most castiron countenance that was ever made, perverted the testimony, and in order to lead you astray and make you believe that he was right looked as pleasing a* a basket of chips. But,'' sai l Jim. ' what have We to fetr ' An impartial court, and honest jury, with the law and evidence all in our favor We ti ust have a verdict and, gentlemen, I de mand, in the name of justice, a verdict at your hands. Gentlemen. X will now read to the court, in your hearing a decision made by the Supreme court of Alabama, which completely covers this cause read from ."VI Stewart A Por ter, page ?, and it is the law and decides this case in favor of tbe defendant." This was more than the patience of Judge Lister?with a gallon of "blue-head" under his shirt?could bear. So, up he jumps and squall out: "Hold! Squire Powers, hold! That's all fiddle-faddle, sir' I let you know, sir. that we have got a court of our own here. Gentlemen of the jury, go out and fetch in a verdict for the plaintiff, and put a stop to such tomfoolery!" He turned round to Sandford ?., who was sitting olose by, and said, in an under tone. '? I know but d?d little law, but I am h? on jestico." Squire Powers wag oompletely nonplussed. He tried to explain, but the more he said the fiercer grew his Honor. Jim, at length, modest ly intimated that ? bill of exceptions would be demanded. "Bill of hell!" roared Lister. "Appeal from court! Why, sir, if you talk that way, I'll hue you and send you t* jail for contempt of m>j vourt, and, if that wont do. I ll whip yonr shirt off?ilaiun me if I don't!"

Showed me all the heads Some were pla<t?*r ca?U. Said they cant lof*. Told him I was opposed to gambling. (He looked bewildered.) Showed me the skull of Mulligan. Mulligan was an acrobat. Made his last appearance on a tight rope at the City Prison for the benefit of tbe nublic. Broke his neck in the performance. Next, showed me the skulls of men killed in wars. Professor observed as a curious fact that those slain in battle were generally aged? hiving balled heads. In the next row was tbe skull of a boatman; it was not for salo; it looked ordinary. Pwr fellow ! he has run his race. We next paid our attentions to the females. They were seemingly old maids? being laid on the shelf, in tiers. I couldn't tell them from the heads of the males. Professor said they had a little more jaw. He did not speak of their sighs. As I was about departing I no ticed a curious shaped skull. I took it up, ex claiming?'how wonderfully and fearfully are we m.ide !" ? Put that down," said the Profes sor; ? it belongs to me." It was marked ?Baboon Charles Dicks.** on Hoksbn.?I object to the personal appearance of the horse. I pro tect against the conventional idea of beauty as attached to that animal. I think his nose too long, his forehead too low. and his legs (except in the case of the cart-horse) ridiculously th n by eomparson with the siscof his body Again, considering how big an animal he is, I object to tbe contemptible delicacy of his constitution. Is he not the sickliest creature in creation? does any child catch cold as easily as a horse ? Does he not sprain his fetlock, for all his appearance of sujterior strength, as easily as I sprained my ancle .' Furthermore, to take him from another point of view, what a helpless wretch ho is ? No fine lady requires more constant waiting-on than a horse. Other animals can make frheir own toilette; be must have a groom. You will tell me that this is because we want to make his coat artificially glossy. Glossy ! Come home with me, and see my <**t?my clever eat, who can groom herself!

Then, again, what a fool the horse is?what a Door nervous fool' He will start at pieces of white pa|>er in the road as if it was a lion. His one idea, when he hears a noise ho is not aocustoined to, is to run away from it. What do you say to these two cointnou instances of the sense and courage of thii? absurdly overpraised animal ' I might mil ti ply them to two hundred, if I ehose to exert my mind and waste my breath, which I can neverao.
