Giving TucRoAb.—In the northern part of New Jersey, there lived an old Quaker remarkable for his obstinacy. Among 1 other peculiarities of disposition, Jiu had the custom of making every vehicle lie met upon the ra;id, while driving, turn out of the way for him. Frequent attempts} had been made lo force him to give up his thirling prerogative, but tUcy Uad all proved unavailing. Nevertheless a young man in his neighborhood, not at all discouraged hy these repeated failures, laid a wngcr that he would make the old gentleman yield the road to him. Accordingly, having 1 sumuiuttcJ up uU his resolution, lie set out on what we might perhaps call, were we sublimely disposed, "this new crusade.* 1 He soon espied his adversary driving hia " creclur" in the customary jog-trot.

The •* Dircli-Wocd," a noble ship from Aalerdam, slowly made her way up the river. She had on board some forty or fifty immigrants. The old Germans, in their long tailed coats, decorated with many small brass buttons, smoked their pipes complacently, and every no* and then grunted, " yaw 1 yaw!" in assent or reply to some qucation. The young girls displayed themselves in their brightest kirtles or bud dices, ai»d larded their hair in order to make it smooth and bright. Ther...
