One day Farmer Grundy told a neighbor that he believed his wife " was the most even-tempered woman in the world, for he never saw her cross in his life—and that lor once he should like to see her so. "Well," said his neighbor, "go into the woods, and bring home a load of the crookedest wood you can find, and if it doesn't make her cross, nothing will." Accordingly, to try the experiment, he teamed home a load of wood every way calculated to make a woman fret. For a week or more she used the wood copiously, but not a work »f complaint escaped her lips. So one day the husband ventured to inquire of her hoyv she liked the wood.— "Oh, 'tis beautiful wood," said sh-;, "1 wish you'd get another load, for it lay , round the pot complete!"

The conduct of the late and present admiuistrations in respect to Watkins, and the host of defaulters, reminds me of an occurrence in the far west. I tell the story, but conceal the names of the party. Pity shields them from presentation to pulic scorn. 4nold man was always extolling his own virtues, and decrying those of other people, and who was above all concealment, according to his repeated avowals, was passing his way home after running the noblest buck in the forest, by a cornfield of a neighbor remotel y situated from the dwelling house. His sons and dogs were along, much fatigued by the recent chase. The old man discovered in the field_ a single hosr— a runt- ensrao-ed in breaking down the {stalks and eating the corn. He immediately swore by " the Etemal," (hat he never could witness such a sight without feeling the greatest indignation a...
