FRIDAY EVENING. MARCH 30. How to Dye Eastes Eggs.?As next Sun? day is Easter, the following suggestions in regard to dyeing eggs are timely, and may interest those ooncerned : To dye eggs black put logwood chips into the water in which they are to be boiled, These chips may be bought at a druggist's for a trifle. It is easy to tell when the wa? ter is black enough by laking up a little with a epoon. Eggs can be dyed with these chips from a lovely port wine color to jet black. To obtain a brown color put strong coffee grounds or settlings into the water. For yellow use plenty cf onion peelings. Put the peelinus into tbe water while oold and boii the eggs among them. In dyeing egus great care should be taken j to uee ocly one spoon and that an eld one. The oldest saucepau in tbe house, too, will answer the purpose. All dyes are difficult to remove f'om these things. The following is an excellent way of ornament? ing eggs with gold and silver: Boil them an hour in piaiu water only. Whe...

SATURDAY EVENING, MAECH 31. Battle Between a Hobse and a Kat. Wade Hicks, an industrious drayman, drove his one-eyed gray through the streets yester? day, the grave nose and face bloody and scratched, resembling a trained bull dog after a fierce con tlict in the ring. Mr. Hicks ac? counted for the sangwine appearance of his horse's nasal appendage, by describing the combat through which tbe faithful aninv.! had passed with an immense rat, which had Invaded the gray's feed trough at feeding time. When Hicks entered the stable he found the horse backed as far as his halter would reach, apparently greatly aiarmed and afraid to approach the trouRlj. On ex araing the trough he found an immense rat with bis bend crushed to a jelly, evidently bitten by the horse while detendioghis food ! against intrusion by the rodent. This is tho j second case of tho kind brought to our at | tention lately.?Fretterickabwg Free I/ince. In addition, tbe Suffolk Herald says: "W. M. Atkinson hes a horse that...

ALT5XA.ISTDHIA. WEDNESDAY EVENING, A PEIL 4. The Ricbmond Dispateh continues to find fault with the Gazette for its advice to the democrats of the State, in their city and county meeting?, to be eure to select as their delegates to their State convention "men who will represent them correctly." Surely the Dispatch does not want them to 8 leer .-nen who will represent them incor? rectly, or as unfairly as the Dispatch repre? sents the Gazette. The Gazette never proposed that "only tariff reformers be se lected," or that one, let alone ' one third of the democrats of the State be proscribed," or ''to drive out of the party and treat as pa-inlis the old Whig element,"?though, as regards the latter, every modern tariff re? former would be perfectly satisfied with such protection as Mr. Clay desired. What lh?- Gazette advised, and what it advises nov, is that Virginia democrats, in their pri niniy meetings, be sure to see that the dele? gates they elect are men who will represent th* maj...

He was a whole-sonled.ontepok on, candid tspeaking, Davy Crocket sort of a fellow, with nerve to say what be thought, and meant all be said.

Harri? son a6 President, Jack Dade ?talked into the White House unceremoniously and warmiy grasping bis friend Tyler by the hand, said : "John, I have come for an office, and I'm not going back to KingGeorge without one." The President relaxing somewhat the dig? nity that became his exalted station and the circumstances that made bim President, asked Mr. Dade what kind of an office he wanted. Jack promptly replied: "John, I want an office?akind of sinecure?(empbaBizing the last syllable) an office with plenty of pay and d? little work."
