They receive painful impressions from which their nervous system does not recover for years, perhaps not during their whole lives. Children and young folks have general ly great curiosity in relation to these tales of the imagination, especially when they are attended by some gossipping nurse, whose head, being empty of good sense, has boon filled brim full of ghost legends and black letter recollections. We happen to know something about this matter by a most unhappy ands painful experience. We know what melancholy effects attend these revelations of goblins and ghosts in the nursery. We have even now, while we _v_^_fcfe, a dim, shuddering recollection of tnese appalling horrors, which makes the blood chill, creep and curdle ...

It happened that the young lady in question had formerly officiated in some capacity as a ' hand' on board a canal boat , a faot which, she was extremely anxious to conceal. She evinced much anxiety to master the details ofner newly chosen profession, and soon exhibited a more than ordinary degree of oomic talent_. She was duly promoted,- and in a short time became a general favorite with both manager and public. One night she was _announced to appear in a favorite part, and a couple of boatmen found their way into the pit, near the footlights, particularly anxious to see the new comedienne. The house . was crowded, and after the subsidence pf the general applause which greeted her appearance, one of the boatmen slapped his companion on the shoulder, and with an entphatic expletive, exclaimed loud enough to bo heard over...
