While thus earnestly he pleaded, Hall believing what ho said, Back too far the y mug man leaned, Thump!—he lauded on his head. Oh, ye gods! have maids no pity! 1.,0ud a mocking laugh did sound ; Once more turned the tricky hammock, And she sat upon the giound. " 'Tis an ill wind"—you all know that Straisi.m'ay he his suit renewed; With hands fondly clapped together Sat they on the grass bedewed. Then, the fates were more propitiou3, Answered she: "I love thee well; Cut—" she saw the swinging hammock—"Please, don't evor, ever tell!'' —Puck. THE ARIZONA KICKER.

T Ig probable that at the next or short session of congress the house will pass the bill allowing each member of that body a clerk, to be paid for out of the public treasury.

Prepared for The Critic. ~ No other subject in American politics has ibeen so often and so continuously debated as fthe tariff. It is not surprising, therefore, 'that the rate of duties upon imports into the j United States has been changed no less than dfty times since the establishment of their government. But omitting minor changes, of which there have been as many as three in qae year, the different tariffs adopted by congress may be classed under eleven heads, viz.: 1. The Hamiltonian or Federalist tariff, the first adopted, signed by President Washington on July 4, 1789, and amended many times in the following twenty-thre-j years and generally by higher rates. It was suspended for a time by the "embargo" of President Jefferson, which practically prohibited all trade with Europe. 2. The war...
