DEACON HEZEKIAH BROWN, THE 3JAN THAT SLEPT WITH TWO WOMEN. BY TIUOniY HARROW. The busy, bustling Hltlc village of B , in the good State of Maine, boasts of its industrious and thriving men, and of its numerous fair women.— Like all other villages in Christendom, it is blessed or rather cursed, with its quota of husy.hodies; a genius of bipeds not satisfactorily described by any naturalist, from Adam down to those of the present time. A "family jar," broughtnbout through their influence, is to them, as tho "b'hoys" would say, " nuts;" and if they succeed in stirring a " muss" In.the church, or in breaking- up a "bone match, 1 they arc in their most happy mood, and have attained the highest point uf their ambition, the most exemplary Hie ts not exempt from their pestiferous attacks—like drowning men, who cnich at straws,. they pounce upon every Htllc seeming obliquity, and magnify it into a regular immoral tornado, whosb progress will be death to the peace of society and the wel...

A SHORT ESSAY ON LONG HAIR Doubtless, the first thing ever done to the human head vras to scratch it. And it is equally aa cer - tain, that about the same period of time the hair falling over the eyes of the newly created being and shutting oat those Bcencs on which he would naturally be opt to gaze with wonder and delight, was drawn to the back part of the head and confined there by a pliant vino or the bark of a tree. From that memorable epoch to the present day, men and women have studied how to arrange the hair in the most becoming manner, or rather in a manner nearest ihe prevailing fashion whether becoming or not. The Ancients were undoubtedly careful of their hair and proud of it withal. The Grecian ladies dressed it in the most tasteful style. The busts of the old sages nnd warriors, show that their hair and whiskers were full and plentiful, and uncommon ourly. The barbers of those days unquestionable, were adepts in their profession; and their minds must have been enl...

ETERNAL JUSTICE BV CHARLES MAC KAY, ESQ. The man is thought a knave or fool. Or bigot, plotting crime. Who for tlie advancement of his kind, Is wiser than hi* lime. For him the hemlock falinll distil; For him the axe be bared ; For himihe glbbetsh&H be built; For him the stake prepared. Him shall ihc scorn and wrath of men Pursue with deadly aim; And malice, envy, spite and lies . Snail desecrate his name. But truth shall conquer at the last, For round and round we run, And ever the right comes uppermost, And ever is justice done. Pace through thy celt, old Socrates, Cheerily to and fro ; Trnet to tl>£'impulsn of tliy soul, And let the poison flow. They may shntter to earth the lamp ofctay Tiiat holds a Itjrht divine, But they cannot quench the fire of thought Ity any such deadly wine: They cannot bint tliy spoken words From the memory of man.

THE LOST TICKET OR THE FRENCHMAN IN A STEW. Mr. Editor:—In returning from a trip to the Lakes a fuw days since, I witnessed a little afiuir that makes quite an item in my notebook, and may aniusc your readers. After a weary drive in a procession of twelve coaches, that moved solemnly for twelve hours over as many miles of beautiful country; we pulled up in front of the "National" in Suringfidd at about 9 P. M. The Circus and county Court kept, that beautiful little town in a densely populated state, so much so thul the sixty or seventy passengers tliut I counted as travelling companions, could not find beds to rest their weary limbs upon, but were forced to take carpet-bags, ti links, juleps, &c, until the cars for Cincinnati would give us more comfortable quarters. Among the rest, a little Frenchman, whose baggage con. sisted of a queerly shaped hat-box and a faded silk umbrella, moved restlessly about with the box in one hand and Ihc umbrella in the other, pouring fo...

After wailing a few seconds, Mr. D., who was ploying the King, replied, " Olt I you have a speech of fire, have you ? well, blaze away, by all means."
