Libel Saiti. That slander is often beneficial to the person slandered is indisputable. We recollect an anecdote in point. A man somewhere' oat west was elected to Congress. He was totally . unqualified, in every respect for the position. A friend at Washington once asked him—" How the deuce did you manage to get elected?" " I stole a pig." 1 "Hey?i—What?—How? la stealing pigs considered a- qualification to Congress?" "No^—but as soon as it was known, the papers on tother side took it up, and of course oti'm had to defend me. ¦ A great noise was made about it—we called it an attempt to 'destroy the spotless reputation of ah innocent man for party purposes':—the people got roused and I got in.'" . - . '" i | At the next, election his opponent was elected. His friend meeting him one day, asked how it happened. "Oh, blast the feller," he replied ^ "he smelt the rat, and got the start of me.— He stole a sheep.'' A WijrrY Retort.—The following capital story is told of Elder Ray, a...

Sketches of Prairie Life. The Bm Hcirreits. '^^nr long, idle evenings around the camp-fires were, generally while'd away with pipes and. , chat, now and then-a song, and sometimes, a yarn, either, fancifnl or true, from some of the rude .characters around us. Encamped upon \he Wahka-roosi, or Big Elk, when journeying outward, only some sixty miles beyond Westport, we listened one evening with intense interest to the following narration, given, perhaps, with/more effect in the uncouth words or the story-teller. It was one of the first of these camp fire relations that we heard, and was so told as to leave a vivid impression upon us all. It was some time in 1832, that a party of fifteen or twenty persons collected among the little village settlement of upper Missouri, for the purpose of a bee-hunting expedition out upon'Grand River. As is usual on such occasion* there were more;novices than practical wood men among them, and in a few days', before a single bee tree was found, ...

[From Blackwood' s Edinburgh Magazine. ,-.?•? Leap-Year. CHAPTER U ,.-¦¦ < . . In the summer of 1838, in the pleasant little county of Huntington, and under the shade oi some noble elms which form the pride of Lipscombe Park, two young men might 'have been seen reclining. The thick, and towering, and far-spreading branches under which they lay, effectually: | protected them from a July sub, which threw its scorching brilliancy over the whole landscape before, them. , They? seemed to enjoy to"the full extent that delightful retired opehness which an English park affords, and that easy effortless communion which only old companionship can give. They were in fact, fellow collegians. The one, Reginald Darcy,' by name, was a ward of Mr. Sherwood, the wealthy proprietor of Liscorabe Park; the other'his friend, Charles Griffith, was passing a few days with him in this -agreeable retreat. They had spent a greater part of the morning strolling through the park, making short jo...
