"He entered the'house witrTan air oT settled melancholy upon his face, which excited tilt fears of his wife, whoT, had come forward to greet him after his absence. "Why, Andrew—Mr. Wyman—what ' s the matter ?" she asked. "Matter enough!" he groaned, "I weigh one hundred and seventy-five pounds! Gained thirty pounds within a fortnight—or at the rate of fifteen per week. Suppose I should go on at this rate, of even ten pounds a week, in three months I shall be a perfect monster. I am the most unfortunate of-nien." "1 am sure you don't look any larger," said Mrs. Wyman. "You don't find that ' vour clothes have grown small for you ?" "Why, no." - "I'll tell you what, Mr. Wymnn," said Ins wife, struck with a sudden idea ; " are you sure you didn't have your valise in your hand, when you were weighed ?" .... __ Andrew's face brightened up. ""^Wait a minute," said he. He sped out of the hofi$«-Hk« an arrow;—flew to tlie depot and renewed the experiment. A moment after he entered the ho...

A Mistake in the Weight. Andiew Wyman was like Lord IJvron in on respect: He had a great horror of growing fat. What added to his nppreherfsion on this score was the fact that his fattier. Iwfurc he died, attained a degree of rotundity which would have enabled him to fill, respectably, the office of alderman. Andrew stood five feet eight in his stockings, and weighed one hundred and forty.five pounds —a very respectable weight—within which he endeavored to keep himself by the free use of vinegar and other ncids, which are reported to diminish any tendency to pinguidity. Andrew was in the habit of weighing himself once a fortn ' gnt, in order to make sure that he was not transgressing prober bounds. He had been absent from home rather more than a week, and just stepped out of the enrs into the depot, when his attention was arrested by an instrument for determining the weight. Mechanically he placed himself on the platform, and adjusted the weight to one hundred and forty-five. ...

Potatoes. : . - ; An Rgr ic iiltunqjnendxw^Q-TOfaH^ed-a-week since from i ranee, informs us that the farmers there have discovered that by leaving a portion of their potatoes, intended for seed, in tie ground during winter, digging them up, and replanting in spring, is a remedy against th« continuance of the various diseases to which the potato has of late years been subjected. It will be recollected tfiat this process was that recommended in this country by Mr. Roberta. We have tried this experiment by leaving potatoes in the ground last year, mulching them, slightly during winter with brush. When we dug them this spring, we found-the potatoes perfect and very solid, and have planted them along side,of others, kept in the cellar during winter. The growth of the crop gives fair evidencp of the superiority of the seed left in the ground, and from present appearance, our experiment, backed by the result claimed by Roberts, and by the French farmers, is likely to sustain the recomm...

ID^'-The Albany Tianscript informs us of a mournful death-bed confession : In the west* cm part of the city there has for many years resided a singular being, whose only occupation was that of drawing sand. Yesterday, near noon, he paid the great ^ debt of nature. Before her died he culled his friend to him and said, " , I haven't got a friend in the world but you, and^to you I give all that I have. There is but one thing that troubles my mind, nnd that is that in tho last five years I have sold Mr :-., the grocer, thirty loads of sand." "But," said his friend "why should that trouble you ?" "Ah," said the dying man, his voice growing faint, "to think how he has shaved his customers, retailing that sand at eight cents per pound for sugar—that's what bo—" The sentence was not finished. .

The. Result in Adams County. t ¦ "Day HAS broken" in the "Young Guard."' The result of last Tuesday's election is as gratifying to aH lowers of the Constitution, as it is ¦ unusual in occurrence. It shows that our citizens are beginning to see through the fcchemes ofunprincipled demagogues and disappointed ofjice-seekers. who would establish intolerance and proscription throughout the land, so that their own selfish and base purposes be accomplished—who would havc'iifftce, at an^ and every cost to the people. Look at the returns : Pollock's majority is but 34 ! Johnston's, three years ago, was 537 No better evidence-than this could be asked to prove that a number who heretofore acted with the opposition are not willing to aid in trampling the -€V ) nstiljiij^n_an/i_h2wii of the Union and State under foot.
