Anecdote of Gikarc.—Stephen Girard _. the rich Frenchman wbo founded the institution in Philadelphia wiiich bears his name, had a favorito clerk, and he always said ''he intended to do well by Ben Lippincot't." So when "Ben got to be tweiity-one_, he expected .to hear Mr. Girardsay something of hia, future prospects, and perhaps lend a helping hand in starting him in the world,1 but the old fox carefully avoided the subject. Ben mustered courage. "I suppose _^ I .am now free, sir," said he, "and I thought I would say something to you as to my future _course.— what do you think I had better do?" . "Yes, yes, I know you are," said the old millionaire, " and my adyice is that you learn the cooper's trade." This application of ice nearly froze Ben out but recovering his equilibrium, he said if Mr. Girard was in earnest, he would do so. ' " I am in earnest," he replied. .

which hath wings shall tell the matter." He that fights and runs away, May live to fight another day. These lines, usually ascribed to Hudibras, are really much older. They are to be found in a book published in 1656. The same ideals, however, expressed in a couplet published in' 1542, while one of the few fragments of Meander; titHe G/reek writer, that have been _preservqd, embodies the same idea in a single line. The couplet in Hudibras is: '•For those that fly may fight again, Which he can never do that's slain. " ; "Hell is paved with good intentions," though found in Johnson and Herbert, was obviously in their day a proverbial expression. Walter Scott ascribes it to "some stem old divine."

The Old Oase_^ Bucket.—The following reminiscence of Samuel Woodworth possesses sufficient interest, we think, to warrent us in presenting it to our read. ers. It is. a.portion of a privote letter recently received from one whose authority in the matter can not be questioned. In referance to the period of the production of the!".Old Oaken Bucket," the writer says r . " It was written in *tho spring or'suramer of 1817. The family were living- at,-the time in Duane Street. The poet came homo to dinner one very warm . day, _paying walked from his office, some where _i n ear the foot of .Wall Street. Being much heated with' the exercise, he poured himself out a glass- of water —New York pump water—and drank it at a: draught, exclaiming, as be replaced the tumbler; on jthe table:. " That is very refreshing :_* but haw much more refreshing would it be to take a good long drought, this warm day, from the old oaken buck&H left-hanging in my fathers well} at home!"
