On Henry Hill, we shall aot any where exactly, there lives a good-for-nothing. Idling fellow, given to drink, who, like all socd characters, shusrs his wife Among his Intimates be goes by the same of "Tommy," sod by that name we shall call him Tommy la not handsome, be has s crooked nose; but he prides himself on being a Virginian, snd thinks that ought to compensate for all drftclenclss Whenever oe goes home "tight." and that Is pretty often, the following programme Is generally carried not. Wife, to her sister, "Msstba. he ia druak?gain " To Tommy. "Go way from me, go way;" when Tommy, striking an attitude a la Forrest, hlocougbs in deep base notes, "Go to h?1, mt dear." W tfe awoona, and the scene cleses. But u> our su?ry Not many days since Tommy'? wll? preaenfed him with uoth?r heir, which being the last of a ion* aeries of offences of the same nature, and happen tag In these bard times, waa very property resented by our hero as a downright Insult, and he treated the partner of his bosom very barsbly, just as If, poor thine, she rould help It," aa an old lady remarked One day last week the wife's sister entered Tommy's domicile carrying In her hand a stont cudgel?"Where's Tommy?" said she "Out In the shed, splitting wood," waa the answer. Going to the back door she called Tommy, who asked her what she wanted with him. "I want to give you a good whaling," said she. "Wbslfor?" aaked Tommy. "For abualng my sister;" said she, "so come right along in here." "You better not hit me with that stick," said Tommy, "I waa not born and rls In Old Virginity to be licked by a woman?you lem me alone " 'You're a pretty specimen of Old Virglnny, ain't ou, to whip a woman. Why don't you whip roe*" said she, catching Tommy by the collar and belaboring him with might and main. Getting a chance te put in another word be pleaded. "D? n It, don't bit a fellow In the face, please." "I want to straighten your noae, Tommy." said she, bringing down her cudgel with such force on that organ that it stood s good chance of being annihilated. By thia tinflthe neighbors had come in. and peace was restores The effort of this cudvellnu has hoen ml ram. Ions. As soon at Tommy'* wounds were healed be went to work, sad has not been on a drunk or abused his "old ooman" since. In fact he has twice been seen to kiss the baby, and once heard to tell tta ma be believed "It was aouie of the rale Old Vlrginny stock."
