Tinie About. Two Yankees w'ere strolling in the woods without any arms in their possession and observing a bear ascending a tree with its large paws, clasped round the trunk, one of them ran forward and caught the bear's paws, one in each hand. He instantly called out to his comrade : , " Jonathan, I say, go home and _ bring something as fast as you can ^ titH kill the varmit. 'Alind, dph"'t stay, for I'm in a fix." Jonathan ran off as faj=$ as he could, but was an exceedingly long time in returning. During the interval the bear made several desperate attempts to bite the hand ot him who held it. At length Jonathan came back. " Halloo, Jonathan, what the deuce has kept you V : Jonathan replied : . "Well, I'll tell you; when at home, brealtfeast was about ready, and* I guessed it 'would be as well to. wait for it.": ¦ " Here now, Jonathan,"' said his companion, "come you and hold it, and I'll kill the critter.in a jiffy."

¦CitlilnriiitiTunernl. " Let the Dead bury their Dead." The following account of a funeral in California would be amusing, if it were not so shocking. We find it in the Pacifi ic .V-tri.' v ' . , 4&f " We were told, the other day of a burial which took place last fall, at a digging on the North Fork, -which, as we know one of the parties who officiated on the occasion, (the parson) we cannot help recording. A miner took sick and died at a bar that was turning out very rich washings, and it was not easy to call men off to attend to any duties that did not 'pay.'—As the one who died happened to be a favorite among his companions, it was^ concluded to have a general turn-out at his burial. An old Missouri local preacher was engaged to officiate—a grave was dug, and everything promised to conclude in a solemn manner ; but as the parson bad never taken the pledge, (or had laid it aside in California, if he had,) he thought it proper to moisten the clay a little before his sol...
