THE EVENING STAR It FUBU8HED MfERT AFTMMJfOOlt, (89N DAY BXOKrPTEO,) WASHINGTON, D. C., FRIDAY, MARCH 5, 1858 hop-frog. BT BDUAB A. FOB. I never know any one so keenly alive to b Joke as the king was. He seemed to lire only for joking. To tell a good story of the joke kind, and to tell it well, was the surest road to his faror. Thus it happened that his seven ministers were all noted for their accomplish ments as joktrs. They all took after the king, too, in being large, corpulent, oily men, as well as inimitable jokers. Whether people grow f*t by joking, or whether there is some thing in fat itself which predisposes to a joke, i never have been quite able to determine; but certain it is that a lean joker it a rara avis tit tfirris. About the refinement*, or, as he called them, the - ghost* ' of wit the king troubled himself very little, lie had an especial admiration for breadth in jest, and would often put up with length, for the sake of it. Over nijeties wea ried him He would have preferred Kabelais's ?? Uargantua," to the " Zadig" of Voltaire; and. upon the whole, practical jokes suited his taste far better than verbal ones. At the date of my narrative, professing jest ers had not altogether gone out of fashion at eourt. Several great continental "powers ' ?till retained their "fools," who wero motley, with caps and bells, aud who were expocted to be alwaprs ready with witticisms, at a moment's notice, in consideration of the crumbs that fell from the royal table. Our king, as a matter of course, retainod his "fool. The fact is. he required something in the way of folly?if only to counterbalance toe heavy seven wise men who were his ministers?not to mention himself. His fool, or bis professional jester, was not only a fool, however. His value was trebled in the eyes of the king, by the fact of his being also a dwarf and a cripple. Dwarfs were as common at court, in those davs. as fools; and many mwnarchs would have found it difficult to get through their days (days are rather longer at court than elsewhere) without both a jester to laugh tritk. and a dwarf to laugh at. Bntj as I have already observed, your jesters in ninety-nine eases out of a hundred, are fat, round and unwieldy?so that it was no small source of self-eratulation with our king that, in H.?p-Frog (this was the fool s name,) he pos sessed a triplicate treasure in one person. I believe the name "Hop-Frog' was not that given to the dwarf by the sponsors at baptism, but it was conferred upon him, by general consent of the seven ministers, on account of his inability to walk as other me do. In fact Hop-Frog oould only get along by a sort of interjeouonal gait?something between a leap and a wriggle?a movement that afforded illim itable amusement, and of course consolation to the king, for (notwithstanding the protuber ance of his stomach and a constitutional swell ing of the head) the king, by his whole court, was accounted a rood figure. But although Hop-Frog, through the distor tion of his legs, oould move only with great pain and difficulty along a road or floor, the K-ii^ious muscular power which nature seem ed to have bestowed upon his arms, by way of compensation for deficiency in the lower limbs, enabled him to perform many feats of dexteri ty, where trees or ropes were in question, or any thing else to climb. At such exercises he certainly much more resembled a squirrel, or a small monkey, than a frog. I am not able to say, with precision, from what country Hop-Frog originally came. It was from some barbarous region, however, that no person ever heard of?a vast distanoe from the eourt of our kinc Hop-Frog^and a young girl very little less dwarfish thau himself (al though of exquisite proportions, and a marv el lout dancer.1 had been forcibly carried off from their respective homes in a<^oining provinces' and sent as presents to the king, by one of his ever-victorious generals. Under these circumstances, it is not to be wondered at that a close intimacy arose be tween the two little captives. Indeed, they soon became sworn friends Hop-Frog, who, although he made a great deal of sport, was by no means popular, had it not in his power to render Irippetta many servioes; but she on account of her grace and exquisite beauty <although a dwarf,; was universally admired and petted; to she p.-w?ses3?d much influence and never failed to use it, whenever she could, tor the benefit of Hop-Frog. On some grand state occasion?I forget what the king determined to have a masquerade ; and whenever a masquerade, or any thing of that kind occurred at the court, then the talents both of H^p-Frog and Trippetta were sure to be called in play. Hop-Frog, in espe cial, was so inventive in the way of getting up pageants, suggesting novel characters, and arranging costume, for masked balls, that nothing oould be done, it seems, without his assistance. The n%;ht appointed fur the frte had arrived A gorgeous u?ll had been fitted up. under Xnppetta ? eye, with every knd of device which could possibly give trlat to a masquerade The whole court was in a fever of expectation As for costumes and characters, it might well be supposed that everybody had come to a deci sion on such points. Many had made up their minds (as to what r9tfs they should assume) a weekHer even a month in advance; and, in fact, there was not a particle of indecision anywhere ? except in the case of the king and his seven ministers. Why they hesitated I never could tell, unless they did it by way of a joke More probably, they found it difficult, on account of being so fat, to make up their minds. At all event*, time flew; and. as a last resource, they tent for Trippetta and Hop Frog. W hen the two little friends obeyed the sum mons of the king, they found him sitting at his wine with the seven members of his cabinet council; but the monarch appeared to be in a very ill humor. He knew that JIop-Frec was not fond of wine; for it exoited the poor cripple almost to madness; and madness is no comfort able feeling But the king loved his practical jokes, and took pleasure in forcing Hop-Fro* to drink and (as the king callcd it) " to be xnerry.'' "Come here. Hop-Frog." said he, as the jester and bis friend entered the room, " swal low this bumper the health of your absent friends, (here Hop Frog sighed,) and let us have the beuefit ot your iuvenUon We want char acters? rhuracttn, man?something novel? eut of the way. We are wearied with this ever lasting sameness Come, drink f the wine will brizbten your wits '' Hop-Frog endeavored, as usual, to get up a jest in reply to these advances from the king; but the effort was too much. It happened to be the poor dwarfs birth-day. and the com mand to drink to his ? absent friends" forced the tears to his eyes Many large, bitter drop* fell into the goblet as he took it, humbly. from t ie hand of the tyrant. "Ah' ha' ha. ha!" roared the latter, aa the dwarf reluctantly drained the beaker. "See4 what a glass of good wine can do! Why vour eye* shine already!" Poor fellow hi? large eyes gleamrj, rather than shone; for the effect of wine on his ex citable brain was not more powerful than in stantaneous. He placed the goblet nervously on the table, and looked around upon the corn any with a half insane stare They all seemed ighly amused at the success of the kings joke. " And now to business,' said the prim'1 min ister, a very fat man. " ^ es. said the king; "come. Hop-Frog, lend us your assistance Characters, my fine fellow; we stand in need of characters?all of ?e-ha ! ha' ha!" and as this was seriously meant for a joke, his laugh was chorused by the seven. Hop-Frog also laughed, althoagh feebly and somewhat vacantly. " Come, come, ' said the king, impatiently; " hare you nothing to suggest V' "I am endeavoring to think of something ?ovel, replied the dwarf, abstractedly, for he was quae bewildered by the wine. " Endeavoring!" cried the tyrant, fiercely; "what do yoa mean by that? Ah, I perceive. You are sulky, and want more wine Here. 4riuk this ?" and he poured 9?t another gob* let fall and offered it the cripple, who merely gated at it, gasping for breath. "Drink. I say .shouted the monster. " or by the fiends? ' The dwarf hesitated. The king grew purple with rage. The oourtiera smirked. Trippetta, pale a* a corpse, advanced to the monarch's seat, and falling on her knees before him, im plored him to spare her friend. The tyrant regarded her, for some moments, in evident wonder at her audacity. He seemed quite at a loss what to door say?how most be comingly to express his indignation. Atlast, without uttering a syllable, he pushed her vio lently from him. and threw the oontentsof the brimming goblet in her face. The poor girl got up as best she oould. and, not daring even to sigh, resumed her position at the foot of the table. There was a dead silence for about a half a minute, during whieh the falling of a leaf, or a feather, might have been heard. It was inter rupted by a low, but harsh and protracted grated sound which seemed to come at once from every corner of the room. 44 What?what?what are yuu making that noise for ?" demanded the king, turning furi ously to the dwarf. 'I he latter soemed to have recovered, in great { measure, from bis iutoxication, and looking fixedly but quietly into the tyrant s face, mere ly ejaculated : '? I?I* How could it have been me ?" "The sound appeared to come from without,'' observed one of the oourtiers. 411 fancy it was the parrot at the window, whetting his bill upon his cage-wires." 44 True," replied the monarch, as if much re lieved by the suggestion ; 44 but, on the honor of a knight. I could have sworu that it was the gritting of this vagabond's teeth *' {TO BE CONTINUED.] A SOLD lO.XDOCTOR. A few nights since a laughable affair occurred on the Niagara Falls railroad, between Buffalo and Tonawanda. It was late in the evening, when the cars stopped at Tonawanda for wood and water. Some passengers got on there, and after the train started Winn, the conductor, started around to colloct fares, and take up tickets. About the middle of the rear car, he came across a heavy looking personage in a wool hat, who was apparently asleep. Winn put his hand on the sleeper's shoulder, and said "ticket." The sleeper stirred not nor intermitted his regular snore, which waa very much like the bark of an asthmatic dog, min gled with a clam pedler's peculiar cry. Wiun gave the sleeper a heavy punch in the aide, but the sleeper awoke not, and his snoring be came positively terrific. Aa a last resort Winn Jtulled him back and forth in the seat until be ell between the seats, when he awoke, and looking up with a grin, wanted to know what was wuifeed. Winn said "ticket" as irascibly as he oould. The stranger got up without say ing a word, reseated himself, and commenced a general search of his person, while Winn passed on to colleot tickets from the seat be yond. When he returned, lo! the sleeper waa asleep again. Winn went at it again like a trooper and after going tkrough the same operation, he finally awakened him aga;n. The same con- , v rsation occurred, and the same search fol lowed, Winn all the while standing by in a | , frame of mind, which might be likened to a cat dealing with a dog?back up and clawa ex Eanded. The stranger finally told Winn he I , ad no ticket, and dropped right back into a | i heavy sleep again. Winn waa now fairly en raged, and jerking the stranger about, awoke him again, and demanded t-h-i-r-t-y c-e-n-t-s ?quick. Stranger yawned frightfully, and said he guessed not, and went to searching for his ticket again. Winn gave the bell rope a savage pull, and went to the door and called the breakman in. The cara atoppe d?the two approached the atranger, when he rose up six feet and a half in his boots, and broad in pro portion, and asked Winn what be was going to do. 44 Pat you out. you villian!" hissed Winn, quivering all over; "men can't ride for nothing on railroads, especially auch sleepy rascals as vou." 44 W-a n-t a sleep a 'tall" said the Yankee ; tho't I'd have a little fun; no use in getten riled abeout it; how much'a to pay.'" said he pulling from one pocket a handful of doubl< 1 # ? *-? < _ r vra UUUVIC I eagles, and from the other a role of banknotes, | almost as thick as his leg. "how much'a ter pay'" thumbing the crisp 5s, and 10s, and 20s, in his fingers. 44 Thirty cents," said Winn, with his eyes standing wide open, which, re ceiving, he hastened from the cur. and atarted i - the train again, amid one of the wildeat yolls | 1 of laughter that ever shook the pannelling of a passenger coach The sleepy man provod to oe the superintendent of a New England road, and had not beon asleep at all. Winn has felt lout, ever since. Jddoe Doolt and the Landlord.?Har per's Magaziue has a correspondent in Georgia who overflows with good things. He gets off the following anecdote: Judge Dooly, an eminent jurist in Georgia torty years ago, was a great wag as well as a great judge?witty as well as wise. His grav ity gave effect even to his jokes, and these were more frequent than bia decisions. One ?f bis fancies was to "take people down" who were in the habit of exaggeration. The way he used up Austin Edwards, keeper of the hotel at Elberton, is a caution to all story tellers, of whom Austin was the prince He always told the whole truth, and more. "It was nateral," he said, "he liked oneoinmon things better than common ones?'twas a heap more arnusin' any how." One morning at breakfast, this long bow landlord had been relating one of his ex traordinary yarns, and Judge Dooly being at the hotel and listening to the story, in aolenin silence until it was over, and then remarked that he had an awful dream in the night, and was very much depressed this morning. Tbe landlord was awake in a moment, and beggod the judge, if it would be no violence to histoel ings, to relate the dream, as all would like to hear it. Tbe judge still declined, as it might hurt tbe feelings of others. "Ob. do tell it, Judge?we must have it," urged tbe landlord ; and tbe company joining in. the Judge proceeded as if he were about to sentence a criminal to be hung: 44Well, I dreamed last night two lawyers and myself bad retired to a private room to divide among us a fee received from a hard case, which had been earned through with a mighty deal of lying on all hands. While we were settling the divixion in ste;*e the devil, who,Jwithout any formality, said he had eome for us?we had told lies enough, and if be left us any longer we migbt repent, and so he'd lose us. We did our beat to persuade him to let us off, but be waa inexorable, till at last I ven tured to ask if be would take a substitute 44 'Whom do you offer7' he aaked. " Austin Edwards,' I aaid, 'keeper of the Elberton Hotel ' 44 -Good ! he'll do,' said he, 4aend him down. I'll take him for all three of you ?' '' Tbe table was in a roar, and tbe landlord was cured for a time at least, of his habit of overdrawing. He passed away years since, and Judge l>ooly is gone too, so there is no harm done telling tbe story. John Kandolph, of Roanoke, Is said to have visited bis farm once for the purpose of ascertaining whether he had oorn enough to answer until the gathering of the next erop. 41 Oh, yes.'" was tbe prompt reply of tbe over seer, 44 here are the notcn stieks, yon will see that will have some fur sale." Before the next erop was even laid by, the overaeer wrote to Mr. Randolph that the rata had taken a good deal of tbe oorn. and that there were more rot ten nubbins than he expected, and Ibat he would have to buy corn. When Mr. Randolph went down tbe next year, and pnt tbe same question aa to the quantity of eorn that bad been stored, the overseer again produeed tbe notsh stieks to show that be had plenty. 44 D?n year notch stieks," said Mr. R.t "showme the ?ora!''

My sirht, origm allv very good, was injured by writing and reading af night, frequently to a very laU hour: but with the aid of them glasses I oan study almost as late as ever, and that too without the pain I have previous ly suffered. JOHN WILSON, I Ate Commissioneer Geu'l Land Office. Dec. 11. 1856. I have used Mr. Tobias's Spectacles for three or four months, and take great pleaa'ure in saying that I am much pleased with them. 1 have been much benefited by tnem. UKO. P.SCAKBlRGH. May 5th. 1856. 1 was recommended to Mr. John Tobias as a skilful optician; and as f have eves of remarkable peculiari ty, 1 was gratified to find that Mr. Tobias *eme<1 to comprehend them by inspection and some alight meaaurement. and he has made ms a pair of Specta oles that suite me admirably. A. r. BUTLER. July 11, 1856. WAsniNSTON, Aug. 8, >855. Having been for years under the necessity of hav two sets of glasses?one lor use in daylight, ard one lor lamp-lit Tit?I procured one act froin Mr. Tobias whioh answered both purpoaea. I have uaed his for sevei&l mouths, and find them excellent. EDWARD STUBB8, Of Department of State. Mr. J. Tobias. Sir: The pair of Spectacles yon furnished me yesterday are particularly satisfactory to me. They are very decidedly the best 1 possess, and 1 am the owner of eight or nine pairs, carefully selected in different plaoes and'from opticians reo omiuended to me on aooount of Uieir professional standing in Franoe, England, and the United States, I havo been alao pleased with vour remarks and di rections on the treatment of tne eyes, for the pur pose of preserving and improving tne sirht. Respectfully yours, CHS. CALDWELL. Professor of M. C.. Louisville, Ky. Brooklyn Okthopaidic Institution, April, 1864. After most oareful examination of Mr. J. Tobiaa's Glaaaea, 1 am enabled to testify that their hardness, olearness, polishing, and exact optical shape render them particularly reooin mend able to those whose merely optical impairment of the eyes are in want of ssoh auxiliaries. 1 oonsider. moreover, Mr. Tobias fully qualified to determine the foous of the eye,both by nis optical knowledge and experience, and by means of his optometer. In addition, I oan further state that Mr. Tobias has anpphed some of my pa tienta with Glasses, to their and my satiafaotion. LEWIS BAUER, M. D..

Nofpolx, Va., July tT, 1854, ^ In the experience of even two years, I have found great difficulty in obtaining Speotacles that were ex actly adapted to the wealrneaa of ray aight. This in convenience Mr. Tobias aeema to have removed for the present by the subatitution for me of better aud more auitable Glaaaea. They are olear, ohryatal-like and ejmfortable to my eyea. I would oommend him a those who from age or other infirmity require ar cial aid in this way. J. J. S1MKINS, M. D. Wilminoton, N. C., Jans 16, 1864. 1 To persons who have had the sight of their eyes so impaired as to require the use or Glasses, I would reoominend Mr. John Tobias as a suitable person from whom to obtain suoh Glaeses as they may re Kire, as he has suited me wit;h a pair of Spectacles a far and near sight. My sight has been impaired very much by a service of years in the Post Office Pap*rtment, whioh berth required me to be on duty from 11 o'clock at night till after day, during which time I used but one Tight. W. A. WALKER. DiPABTMiirr or Irtcbiob, May t, 1858. From natural defeots and the unequal range of my eyes, I have been oompelled to use glasses for seve ral years. I have tried different opticians without obtaining glasses perfectly fitted to my eyes. F?,Vr months sinoe Mr. Tobias mads two pairs especially for me, whioh I have found to serve me By the sse of his optometer he is enabled to adapt etas sea most minutely to the eye.
