Busing IhB Bride. Some thirty years ago, when the custom of kissing! the bride, was more in vogue among ministers than at the'present day, the congregation of old Mr. \V., in one of the western towns, ,of this country," were much excited about their parson, on account of indulging in such piacticea. , They considered it unbecoming in their spiritual guide, and the deacons of the=chiirch were finally^ppointed to wait upon Mr. W. and remonstrate with him on liis conduct in.tfte particular referred to. They accordingly called at the house of tlie parson; and were received; very kindly= by the old gentleman, wlio listened very patiently to their reasons Why he. should desist, but. he told them it was a pan of the ceremony; which he had rarely omitted and, one which he viewed as .perfectly] innocent, bbth in performance and in tendency.— After discussing the subject for a length of time, the deacons finding their argument unavailing, attempted the force of ridicule. The parson bo...

The ship in which he was to sail was at Edgartown, on Martha's iViueyard.-r-The packet was at the wharf which was to envoy him from Nantucket to the ship. He went down in the morning and saw all his private sea stores stowed away in the little sloop, and then returned to his home to take leave of his wife and children. His wife was sitting at the fire-side. She had an infant a few months old in her arms, and with her fool she was rocking the cradle in which lay another little daughter about three years of age, with her cheeks flushed with a burning fever.— No pen can describe the anguish of such a parting. It is almost like the bitterness »oF death. , The departing father imprints a kiss upon the cheek of his child. Four years will pass away ere he will again*take that child, in hi...

* Yankee L05IC. , Capt. Marryatt tells the following anecdote in his work on America: A Yankee went into the bar of an inn in a country town: " Pray," said he, " what's the price of a shrub 1" J" Haifa dollar," was the reply ofthe man at the bar. " " Well^ then, give it me." The shrub was poured out when the bell rang for dinner. . -. " Is that your dinner beH»?" "Yes:" |; " What may you charge for dinner?" "Half a. dollar." " Well, then, I think I had better not take the shrub, but have some dinner instead." ' This was consented to. TheYankee went in, sat down to his dinner, and when it was'over, was going out ofthe door without paying. '• Masaa," said the negro waiter, "you not paid for your dinner." Queer Suiile.—That eccentric mortal. Lord Timothy Dexter, said many curious things, but his idea of ingratitude is the richest thing ofthe kind we ever met with.

The Calamity oritUe Potomac The information which we communicated to a portion of our readers last week, has proved too true. Later intelligence confirms the awful tidings of the. bursting of Capt.

The particulars of this awful calamity are so horrid as at first to ¦ tagger belief. In the midst of joy and festivity, while the) song and the repartee were on every Iip.the grim monster stalks into the group and marks as his victim the noblest of the land. It may not be uninteresting, to add 'some particulars concerning lhe gun and ship not generally known. The ship was built at the expense of U. S. by Capt Stockton, of ^the U. S. Navy, and was some novel in her build arid appearance. The gun is the only one ever made of the kind, was invented by Capt. Stockton as the'' most efficient instrument of destruction known to the : ."-¦• "'- [ v • . worl...
