A Will in your favor's as good as the deed; Wit's the truflle of conversation; Advice (from a rival) 'tis danger to heed; Accomplishment —means education. When you Abandon your lover you jilt; Employment—is work for tho poor; Figure—denotes what's supposed to exist Even after you're thirty or more. Youth is the only age always too young; A Headache's an arm of defense; Truth-is a mythical thing down a well, And a Lie woman seldom repents. The Ear—is the grave of a rival's good name; The Tongue—is man's unruly member; "Established in Life" is the term for a match 'Twixt poor May and rich, white-haired December.

Soon the alarm of fire was given, and it was soon ascertained that the noise proceeded from the office of the Raleigh Seritinel. The firemen were promptly on the spot, as the office adjoined the engine house. Upon examination the Sentinel press-room was found to be m ruins, the roof of the house being blown to pieces and scattered in every direction; the press which printed the Sentinel was completely demolished, the type in the composing-room adjoining all knocked down and pied, and everything in the greatest confusion and disorder.— crowds of citizens soon gathered around the dismantled building, and the impression was ...

After Tennyson. Really good parodies are rather rare, but several decidedly clever ones appear in the little volume entitled "Fly Leaves." Here is another from the same brochure, which the readers of Tennyspn will recegnize as an amusing imitatfon pf "The Brook" WANDERERS. As o'er the hill we roamed at will, My dog and I together, We marked a chaise, by two bright bays, Slow-moved along the heather. Two bays arch-necked with tails erect And gold upon their blinkers; And by their side an ass I spied; It was a traveling tinker's. The chaise went by, nor aught cared I; Such things are not in my way ; I turned me to the thinker, who Was loafing down a by-way; I asked him where he lived—a stare Was all I got in answer, As on he trudged ; I rightly judged The stare said, "Where I can, sir." I asked him if he'd take a whiff Of 'bacco ; he acceded; He grew communicative too, (A pipe was all he needed,) Till of the tinker's life I think I knew as much as he did.

As this issue of our paper can be seen only by comparatively few before voting, we have deemed it useless to occupy our columns this week with political articles.

MARIAMMIE A touching ballad, showing the danger of refusing a young man because he is small. By the bottle-green Miami Dwelt a maiden with her mammy, And her name was Mariammie, And she loved a youth named Sammy— Little Sammy Himilay— Of the town of Picaway, By the bottle green Miami, In the State of Ohio. But all this was years ago, When the maiden was sixteen, Full grown, radiant, and serene As a queen. While the lad was small and greenGreater contrast ne'er was seen; Yet they loved each other so— Hence the woe I "Oh my darling little Sammy I" Sighed the maiden Mariammie To herself; "If you were taller, Only by an inch or two, You might do; But to marry one so small Would never do at all." And so Though Her heart was full of woe, To refuse him, And thus lose him; Yet to all his wild entreaties And love ditties, She said "NoNo, no, no I" But that was years ago, If she'd only told her reason, For refusing him in season, He had certainly grown bolder, And had answered her and told he...
