BOW-STREET, LONDON. Among the odd fish, who were caught by the watchman in casting their net on Friday night, was a Hibernian wag, rathar advanced in years, of very steady exterior, but possessing all the dry good humor, and jokecracking disposition of his countrymen. On being put to the bar, the watchman was called on to state his charge, and this was done in a very few words. In fact, Mr. Butler, the- de/_wnw_^ was found dead-drunk, under the piazzas, in convent garden, at two o'clock in the morning. _?_lffii_^'-Lsaid_^k_Richard,^!hoH!_do_yQ U account for your disorderly conduct?" . Mr. B. (with a grin) O!

Sir R. What brought you in such a state? Mr. B. I suppose I brought myself that way by drinking liquor. Sir R. It would have been well if you had taken yourself home to bed. Mr. ...

It is good when the " >\'eek is ended, to look back upon its business and its toils, and mark wherein we have failed of our. duties Or come short of what we should have done. The close of the week should be to each one of us like the close of our lives. Every thing should be adjusted with the world and With our God; as if we were about _toTeave the one and appear before the other. The week is indeed, one of the regular divisions of life, and when it closes it should not be without its moral. From the end of one week to the end of " anotherj flip mind can easily stretch onward,, to the close of existence. It can sweep down the stream of time to the distant period when it will be entirely beyond human power to regulate human affairs. Saturday is the time for moral reflection. - ¦• When for the mercies of tho week we are thankful, and when our past months, and years come up in succession before us—we see the vanity of our youthful days, and tho vexations ofmanhood, _andTr...
