Our last legislature in a fit of econo my perpetrated an act of injustice to the printers of the State, in catting down the price for advertising Delinquent Taxes and Redemption Notices, to such figures as will hardly more than cover ezpeuses; and this, too, whan every article ased by printers has advanced from fifty to one-hundred per cent.

Her father was a sea captain, and during the first five years of her life, he was away from his little daughter. He then gave up a sea faring life and removed to a town in the country, that he might be sepa rated no more from his family. Liz zie was their only child until she was nearly nine years old, when God sent her a little brother, which made her very happy, and she learned to love him very much. Lizzie was not only dear to her parents and grand-mother, but all who knew her loved her for the un selfishness of her disposition. Tho' an only child, she had not been spoil ed by over indulgence, as is too oft en the case. As the last Christmas drew near, her teacher proposed to the pupils to have a Christmas tree, on which to deposit their gifts. This plan was approved, and all went eagerly to work to carry out the su...

Hh gw the pttb rfte BRAVE LITTLE DICK- The bustle of the fight was over; the prisoners had been secured, and the decks washed down, and the schooner once more relapsed into midnight quiet and repose. I sought my hammock, and soon fell asleep. But my slumbers were disturbed by wild dreams, which, like visions of "fever, agitated and unnerved me. Suddenly a hand was laid on my shoulder, and starting up, I beheld the Surgeon's mate. "Little Dick, sir, is dying," he said. .At once I sprang from the ham mock. Little Dick was a sort of .protege of mine. He was pale, del- icate chiid.said to be an orphan,and used to gentle nurture; and from the first hour he joined the schooner.my heart yearned toward him; for I too had been friendless and alone in the world.
