HUMOROUS. Popping the Question. We have heard of many cases of “popping” under very singular circumstances—the ec centric,! Im abrupt, the husiue»s-liko,the silly, and a thousaud other at) its. Of the ecceu tric, we would cite the case of a well kuown merchant, who, one day dining at a friend’s house sat next to a lady who possessed rare charms ol conversation. The merchant did not possess this faculty in a very rare degree, but he could do that which is next best, he could appreciate; an appreciation which lie endeavored to show by the following mode of action: i “Du you like toast, Miss B-!’’ “Yes,” responded the lady, slightly surpris ed at the question. “Buttered toast?” “Yes.” “That Is strange; so do I. Let us get mar ried.” There cannot be much doubt that the laby was taken slightly aback, a fact that did not prevent the marriage irom coming olf in a month afterwards, nor the accession of the lady to one of the ilnest establishments In the city. as a specimen of the abrupt, we shall cite the case of a gentleman, who had retired from business at Uie age of forty, and built him a beautiful house, deteimiued to enjoy Ule to the utmost. One day a friend was din ing with him, uud said, half jokiugly: “You have everything here that the heart can desire, hut a wife.” “Thai’s true. I must think of It,” said he, and then relapsed Into silence for a few min utes, at the end of which time be rose, pegged to be excused for a short time, and left the room. He seized his hat and went instantly to a neighbor’s and was shown iulo the parlor with the information that neither the master nor the mistress were at home. He told the servant that he wanted neither, and request ed the housekeeper to be sent to him. She came, and the gentleman thus addressed her: “Sarah. I have known you for many years, and have just been told that I waut a wife.— You are the only woman that X know, that I should he willing to trust my happiness with; and If von Merer, we will be instautlv mar rl#d. What U your answer?” Sarah knew the man that addressed her, and knew that his offer was serious, and as well weighed as though considered for a year, and she answered him in the same spirit, “I agree.” ««vi" -ou be tealy !n an hour?” “I will” *'i auaji return for you at that time.” Which he did, the gentleman who had sug gested the idea accompaning him to the cler gyman's. Many years have passed since then, and neither party has seen any cause to regiet the abrupt proposal and acceptance. Of the busbies* style, we can cite a case rtf lated to us, which we know for a true one. A young man who had succeeded to the ill kept and hadly cultivated, though really valuable farm of a deceased uncle, saw at a glance that two things were absolutely necessary to enable him to succeed; the first being a wife to take charge of the woman's department, and the second a few thousand dollars to stock it with. He could not help thinking to himself that, possibly, these two great aids to his happiness and prosperity might be found together, and yet without attempting to put his inatrimoulal and financial ideas into practice, he allowed them to haunt him continually. With this upon his mind, our farmer started upou a horseback journey to a distant part of tbe country, and upon his return made an ac quaintance upon the road, in the person of an old gentleman who was jogging the same way The companions dined together at a wayside inn, and fraternized pleasantly, during which the yonng man opened his heart to the elder, telling him all his plans and aspirations, when j the old gentleman addressed the younger: “I rather like you. my friend, and your hon est way of telling your story, and if you will come and see me 1 shall be glad. 1 have three daughten, all as good girls as ever lived.— Now, perhaps one may be the very one you are looking for; if so, 1 will do my best toward making the balance of the matter agreeable.— Hide over and see me to morrow, take dinner and stay Id the afternoon, which will give you a fair chance to see them and judge.” The young man instantly agreed to the pro posal, making only one condition that the young ladies should not be informed of the na ture of his errand. This was agreed to and they separated. '1 ue next day, at the time appointed, the i young man dismounted at the door of the bouse of his new friend, and was heartily wel- j coined. The hour before dinner was consum ed In looking over the larm, tbe young man in admiring Us keeping,and the old one In ap proving of the practical and sensible remarks oi the younger, when the meal was announc ed, and the youug ladies and their mother were introduced. They were all, as the old gentleman had said, fine girls, but the younger, rosy-cheeked, blue-eyed, and laughing-faced, charmed the youug farmer especially. The d'"**er over, they once more walked out for a «iat ell, how do yon like my daughters?” was the old gentleman's first question. “They are all nice girls, very nice,” said the young man thoughtfully. -“And which of them do you like best?” was the question. “The youngest, Kate, she Is charming, and If I ain to be your sou-in law, you must give me Kate!” j “This will never do to take the youngest 1 and by all odds the prettiest,” said the old gen- j tleman seriously. “I mu«t have her or none,” was the response, ^‘How much money did you Bay you want “Five thousand dollars will put my farm in " excellent order, and make It worth twenty thousand to-morrow. I must have five thou sand dollars.” ‘ I'll give you that sum with either of the other girls,” said the old man positively ; “hut i I will give you three thousand with Kate.” “Then I in iy as well go home. Five thou asnd 1 mutt have—I have set my mind upon U." j “And I have just as strongly determined to do only what 1 have said,” w as Hie old gen tleman's reply; “so I suppose the matter is at au end. However, we will be good frienda, and you must sometimes run over and I tee me.” This ended the conference, and they part ed. The young man mounted his i horse, and rode down the road, but ju9t'a9 he was about openiug the gate, stooping from his saddle, the laughlug-faced Kale sprang through the shrubbery to save him the trouble. “Can’t you accept my father’s terms ?” “Fes, by George, I will,if you say so,” was the Instantaneous response. “Then come over to morrow morning before ten o’clock and tell him so,” and the girl van ished like a fairy among the leaves. The young inau rode slowly home, but he was on hand the next morning, according to bidding, and married the fair Kate in two months after. CTTV OF PORTLAND.
