We were telling Htoriea of onrlndimn life. Said tho dootor: “ One of onr eer-gcant’s wives bad a little boy- of about a year oM. The ebild was adeep one day in a widker cradle, over which bie mother had apread a light chinti quilt to protect the infant from the fliea. She was engaged in some household matters in the next tcom, quite auured of Uie boyV nfety, aa ahe waa cloae at hand, and could hear his dighteatmoT. men! Some cause or other to(A her into the apartment where the child lay, and gloocing' t the cradle, she beheld a terrible aighu The infant lay in adeep and tranquil dumber; but at the foot of the cradle, coiled up on the quilt, waa a Buake, whi^ the least motion of the ebild might at any moment disturb and irritate, when the moat frightful leanlt would probably f. llcw. bowing her-relf to be powerleea for g09d, the poor mother east an agoniied look on her sleepirg babe, and with trembling limba dipped frcm the romn and rushed to the plaoe where ahe knew she diould find her hretard. In a moment bo had decided wbat to do; and aeiB'ng some implement with a forked extremity, be followed tis wife back to the hqose. Stepping eoftly op to the cradle, wilb one swift moveoieBt be dezteioiuly twitehed tho deadly reptile from the spot where it lay, and with a well-aimed blow killed it on the ground where it fdL Nothing like preeenee of mind onaudt oeesaioaa; no time for deliberation with eobraa. Now I think 1 have pretty well done my share cf the talking, and harrowed your feelinga up to the proper pitob for the judge’a atoty.” » Well. weU,” said the judge, aup-poae I must tiy. Onee upon a time, then—to begin like the old fdiy tatea— I waa a smart young fellow, like a good many of yon here; and I waa luo^ enough to obtain a civil appointment which waa a very good thing m thoie days, and isn’t a bad thing now, let me tell you. My father had an old friend, a civilian, who lived in Bombay; and when I landed I found a very cotdid invitation awaiting me to go to this gen-tlcman’a houae, and stay aa long aa suited my convenience. A moat mx-tby, kind, and hoepitable old gentleman ho was; nobody could have been a more dnceie friend; he would have gone miiea to do any one be liked a aervice. Be bad one epecid fknlt, however, or weakneea we may rather call It—he wais very fond of praetied joking.” ** A moat deteatable viee^ if you’ll excuse bad language,” intnpolated the doctor. * 'It is indeed,” remmed the judge; « and 1 trust none of our yunng friends here will ever be guilty of it, iat it is neither clever nor gentlemanly. My friend Mr. Gordon waa a gentleman, however; but in thoae daya more latitude in mannera waa permitted; snoh things would not be tolecated now. In addition to varioua foolish little tricka which Mr. Oordon waa food of playing off upon Lia gueat*, eepedally u p o n tho‘griffs,’ ho had one favorite joke, wLieh had become a conatant habit with him, so that he raidy encountered a new-comer without perpetratiiig it, if tho opportunity offered. This waa to pick up a stick, bit of matting, or rope^ or nuytbing that came handy, and throw it aguinat tho person he wiahed to B*artie, at tho same time exclaiming, ‘A snaker Some of them merely smiled and took no further notiee; others perbapa started and looked uneasy fcr a moment, and thia delighted the old gentleman; while a few were found who were visibly annoyed, and did not aee the joke at all. I t waa certunly a very weak one. However, he seemed to find it entertaining, for he constantly perpetrated it, till he one day received a lesaoo, which undoubtedly cured him of that trick, and I think of a good many othera. “ He waa walking in hia conpound, or garden, one afternoon with two or tliree frienda. I waa there too, and with me waa cne of the young men who had mmeoutattheaamatimeaamyaelf, and who had cdled that day to aee me, and had been taoapitably invited to remain to tiffin.

STONS^ OF BAIK.
(Addressed by Dr. Jenncr to alady w bo a sk ^
him If he thooght It ■would rain to-morrow.)
The hollow winds begin to blow
The clouds look black, the glass U Iqw ; .
The soot falls down, the spaniels sleep,
13jo spiders from their cobwebs creep;
Last uif(ht tho sun went pale to bed.
The moon in halos hid her head;
The boding shepherd heaven a sigh.
For see, a rainbow spans the sky 5
.The waUs are damp, tho ditches smell,
Closed is the plnk-cyed pUnpomcll;
The squalid toads at dusk were seen
Slffwly crawling o’er the green;
Loud quack tho ducks, the peacocks cry,
Tho dUtant hili^ are lookiug nigli;
Hark, bow tho chairs and tables crack.
Old Betty’s joints are on the rack,
And see yon rooks, how odd their flight.
They imitate the gUding kite,
Or Focm prccIpitate to fall,
As If tiicy felt tho plerciug ball;
Huw restless are the snorting swino.
The busy flies disturb the idne.
Low o’er the graps the swallow wings,
The crickct, too, bow loud she sings,
Pufs on the hearth with vrivcl paws
Sits wiping o’er her whisker'd jaws—
Twjll surely rain. I see with sorrow,
Our jaunt must lio put off to-morrow.
