HALL d; R^jAiMo^4 ai^e A business cbat the> e liJp to ^ a^ k rf'to bunt for bargains, and although they may lose thousands of dollais in marking down to gold, they are constantly buying out some unfortunate importer who has had to seU bis stoek at ball price, or selecting out the choice goods from the constantly occurring failures; and r'-ery day tbe large auction sales in our great .markets present bargains which are carefully watched, selected from and plAC(gaW9rfl:t^f - “A Kanaker is a rough cuss, boys,” said Rugy Taylor, harpooner in th< captain’s boat, as he sat one night in the fok’eel, under the swinging lantern, with the “watch below” clustering about him in various attitudes, all intent upon the yam, while they chew ed “ pig-tail,” or smoked “nigger-head,” the two favorite brands with the crew of the Blubber Hunter. “You see, they ain’t got any notion of right or justice, and, my eyel you injure one of ’em and he’s goin’ to remember it till the last dog is hung, and when his tarn comes he’ll pay you back.” “Jack Davidson was a harpooner in the old Nelson when I was out on my second cruise, in the year ’30. A fine chap be was, six feet high, straight as one of the pines of his native Maine, with a heart ez big ez a bushel-basket. Mates, I loved that man and I ’d ’a’ dve my life for him any day ef it was needful ; and he knowed it, too. “We had three or four Kanakers aboard, and one of them was a harpooner in the first Dickey’s boat—a good harpooner, too, for them cusses don’t know what it ar’ to be afraid of anything. ‘ Why, blast my eyes and buttons! I’ve see’d that Kanaker—we used to call him Gaiiyowen because we sed be looked like an Irishman—jump from a boat onto a live whale’s back and stamp in the iron with his foot. Because, you see, wben he got wild for' blood, whether whale or humaa, he didn’t care a cuss what the danger was, but be just wade in blood up to his knees. I’ve see’d him drink a handful, warm from the whale’s life. You kin see it wa’n’t just the best thing in the world t j hurry a man like that and git him down on you, because he had the cussi-dest mem’ry you ever heerd of. “Jack Davidson was always up to his larks, full of fun, and ef he got a chance to put a joke on one of the boys he was just the man to do it. One night when the port watch was called, Garryowen didn’t come on deck, and Jack crept down to see what was up, and tbar was the Kanaker asleep on his chist. Jack crawled out ag’in and ringed a purchase, put some of the Watch on the fall and then went down and got two half-hitches under Garry owen’s arms and sung out to the men to walk away with the fall. They did walk away and up went Garryowen through the scuttle and never stopped till his head struck the block on the foreyard. Then he began to curse them in ch’ice Kanaker and they only laughed and held him thar till he was crazy mad. The first Dickey stopped the fun, and they lowered away and the Kanaker shook hisself out of the rope and came to the place where Jack Davidson stood, laughing. You do it, eh?” he screamed. “Me war Kanaker—chief? Me killee you, one day 1” “ You’d better not try it on, Garryowen,” replied Jack, quietly, or I’ll knock all the tattoo out of you hide.” “He could do it, too, for though the Kanaker was quick ez a cat. Jack Davidson could ’a’ broke his back with ease. I see’d the brown devil fingenng his knife and sung out to Jack to mind his eye, and then the knife flew out like the sting of a wasp, but Jack gave him a wipe over the muzzle that sent him turnin’ back summersets from the fore’ to the ‘main.’ We picked him up all bleeding, and took away the knife, and he was put in irons for two days. He cooled down then and made all sorts «f promises, and he were k t loose, but I knowed he meant mischief and told Jack Davidson to be on his taps or he’d git pepper. “Garryowen did not speak to him, but when they met he’d give one look out of them snaky eyes and pass on. We tuched at one of the Islands for water and the boats all went ashore. 1 was in the capt’in’s boat, pulling num-t> er two, and when we went into the boat, Jack, old harpooner that he was, took his iron with him. You bardly ever sec a harpooner go anywhere without his iron. Garryowen looked up wben we passed him, and any man could see the devil in his face. We filled all the casks and sent them aboard, and then they gave us a balf-aday’ liberty, for none of the boys wanted to run, ’cause they knowed the old Nelson was a blasted comfortable ship,and they coulda’t change for the better. “ I went with Jack, and we took a strll up the mount’in and got into a brad'fruit grove, where it wes cool and shady. A shadow fell upon tbe grass, and I looked up and saw the Kanaker with his harpoon in his hand. He had a Portugee with him, tbe only man in the ship that would consort with the tattooed thief, and a dirty, mean son of A pirate he was, too. His name was G a s ^ , or leastways that’s what he calied hisself. “Look ye, Jack Davidson,” he said; “you have insulted my friend, and he demands satisfaction.” “Your friend is a nice sort of chap can’t take a joke like a true-hearted sailor,” said Jack. “Now, see here; I’m a quiet man, bat ef I get any more lip from you or the Kanaker, I’l knock you both into the shape of a slush-lump, in two seconds.” “ I didn’t come to fight with you Jack,” said Gaspee, turning to a sort of sickly yellow, 'but tbe chief says he has been insulted, and wants to fight you.’ “ That's r’asonable and manly.” said Jack. “ I’ll shake hands or fight him, just as he likes, but I warn Him and you that, ef 1 take off my jacket, some one is goin’ to git licked.'’ “Garryowen shook his bead as Jack stood up and leaned on his harpoon, looking big and strong enough to eat half a dozen soch critter as the Portugee. “ He don’t want t j fight that way,” said Gaspee. “He wants you to take a harpoon and fight him with that.” “Garryownen ran back about ten paces and whirled bis barpooa abort* bis bead. I t was done so quick thst Jack had to fight or die on the spot, and his harpoon went up too. For three minnits .they stood focing each other, but neither would throw because each feared that, if be missed, tbe other would run in and harpoon bim before he could git back tbe iron. “You’d better quit, Garryowen,” cried Jack. “I don’t seek yonr life.” “He bad hardly spuken, wben tke Kanaker ran up nearer and threw bis iron. Jack dodged, and tbe sharp steel cut a furrow ^rough bis arm. Jack spun half round,knd turned again just as tbe Kanaker drew a bea(yy knife and rushed in to finish bis work. Jack bad no time to throw, but be lownred his iron and held it like a speer in front of bis breast. We thought Ghurjowen would stop then,, but, with a yell which rings in my ears now, he tiirow ed hisself upon the sleel barb. Jack tried to keep it away from a vital part but luck was ag’inst him, and the broad blade passed through bis black heart and he dropped dead at Jack Davidson’s feet. Thar was an examinatiott, but Gaspee told the truth, because I kinder liinted that he’d better, and Jack was not blamed. He was killed by a sperm whale, not a hundred miles from this. I don’t want no better chum than he was. Pass the grog, here’s to Jack Davidson, who has gone to Bavy John!” ADVBSTZ8ZVO ZH DULL TZKBS. Tbe Milwaukee Wisconnin relates tbe following: “After the crash of the *57, wben everybody was almost scared to death and the croakers predicted that tbe country had gone to smash, a drygoods house was opened in this city, which p ro d d ed on the principle that in order to reach the hoarded money in tbe pockets of the people, the propnetors must sell at very reasonable prices and advertise very largely. They worked vigorously upon this princifde. Their brother merchants who did not advertise predicted that the new-comers would be ruined, as they paid toomnch for advertising. Nevertheless, they persisted. In a single year they paid five hundred dollars in gold to the liajly Wisconsin for advertising, and at tbe end of seven years they retired from buoiness with a fortune of one bondred thousand dollars, while other merchants on the same street, some of them opposite their store bad failed.” The Evening Past recalls a similar instance among its own advertisers in tbe panic of 1857. A merchant continued bis advertisement in its columns through the whole period of sta^ation and notwithstanding many predictions that “ it wouldn’t pay.” His testimony afterward was that his sales were steady and his profits satisfactory, while many merchant around him who “ couldn’t afford to advertise,” saw bis clerks stand idle behind the counter. A financial panic does not mean that no one has any money in the country, and those who hoard it are just the ones to be eager for tbe “ Iwgains” which a fall in prices bold out. But to buy they must know where to buy, and the merchant who tells them will receive their cash. Blowing.—The other evening, says New Orleans paper, while the chief engineer of a lung-tester was expatiating upon the benefits to be derived from the free use of bis instruments, a cadaverous individual stepped out of tbe crowd and remarked to him: “Mister, do you think it would help me any to blow into that can?” “Yes, sir, certainly, it would expand your chest, give elasticity to your luugs, and lengthen jour life. Why, you would soon be able to blow five hundred pounds and win the five dollar prize.” ‘Why, does a fellow get five dollars when he blows that many pounds?” *Yes, sir; wouldn’t you like to make a trial?” with a knowing wink to the crowd. “ I don’t care if I do,” said Greeny, walking around and planking down a dime of tbe greasy shinplaster sort. Then, taking the mouth-piece in his hand, made leady. He opened bis mouth until the whole of his face looked like a dry dock for ocean steamers, and began to take in wind. The inflation was like that of a balloon. That fellow’s chest began to grow and distend until he resembled a pouter pigeon more than a man, at which point he put the mouth-piece to bis lips, and blew with such force that bis eyes came out, and stood around on his cheelt bones to see what was the matter. But that can-top went up like a flash, and needle of that indicator spun around, ke a button on a school house door, until it stood still at five hundred pounds! The crowd cheered, and the keeper of the can paid over the five dol* lers in stamps, with a mutter of astonishment. But Greeny pocketed them cuoly, and turning to the spectators, said: “Look here, gents, that ain’t nothing at all to do for a man who has been bugler in a deaf and dumb asylum for seven years, like me!” Sergeant H. B. Freeman has been elected second lieutenant of Company I, second regiment, vice J. M. Bradley, resigned. Capt.

A Colobed Wedding.—The bride and groom, answering to the names of Andrew and Susy, were fleld-hands of onepeakable Guinea blood, and both' had passed tbe half century of life.— Their dress, however showed that they bad not entirely eschewed the follies of their youth, fer though rude and cheap as became their condition, it was never theler embellished with those bits of gew gaws and glaring flnery of bright-coloiM ribbons and ties in whi'*h the race delights. With tbe most decorous gravity* the preacher began: ^Andrew, duz you lub dis yer woman?” dnz so,” was the emphatic reply. **Will you promise to stick close froo time imd ’tamity, renouncing all oders an* cleabing to her for eber an’ eber an’ amen?” “ I will dat.” “Will you lub, honor an’ ’bey—” “Holdon dar ole Jack!” interrapted the groom, with no little show of indignation—“ taint no use talkin’ to dis iii|;gmr *bont ’beyin’ de wimmin. Can t iroorfse to ^bey no wimmin folks enny ‘cept ole miss.” “ Silence dar, you owdumptious nigger!*’ roared the wrathful preacher ‘what fur do you go fur to spile the ceremony! Yon done spile all de graU ^ ob de !caaion. Dis yer’s only a mattor ob £oi:b^ and inspensible to de casionl Now don’t you go forto open yonr black mouf till the time for you to speak. Will you promise to lub, honor and ’bey” (Andrew still shsldng bis bead ominou^y at tbe obnoxious word) “ dis yer nigger Susy, furnishing her with ftngs needed for her comfort and ^pplness, cberishin’ and protectin’ from snffmn’ and sorrow, an’ makin’ smooth de path of all her pre-cedin’ days to come.” “ I s’pose I must aay yes to dat,” said Andrew meekly. ‘Den I prononnoe dese yer two couples to be man an’ wife, an’ whom de Lord has joined together let no man go fur to put dem asunder.” Here an nproar arose among theblacks betokening a dilemma entirely unfor-seen by old Jack. For inasmuch as be bad forgotten to require the usual vows of Susy, they insisted that however flrmly Andrew might be bound by the bonds of matrimony, Susy was still single, and the pair were but half married The matter was at last adjudsted by the preacher commencmg the ceremony over again, by which means the couple were flrmly united to the satisfaction of alL Blue Laws.—^Mrs. James Elliott, of Southington, is the owner of an original copy of the Colonial Statutes of Connecticut of the well-known “Blue- Laws.” This old volume has been the innocent target tor more very bad joke, and exaggerations than any other in existence, but now and then there wm a law to be classed ^ among mahim in prohibitum that seems a little severe and arbitrary—as for example the following: It M ordered. That no man within this colonye, after the publication hereof, shall take any tobacko, puhliquely, in the street, bigbwayes or any bame yardes, or uppon tnd^ng days, in any open places, under the penalty of sixpence for each offence against this order, in any the particulars thereof, to bee piud without g^esaying, uppon conviction, by the testimony of one witness, that is without just exception, before any one magistrate.

Why don’t we ask for four days, or five days, or a week?” ‘We want it fresh,” replied the ingenious child.

A young Jwoman of a very prudish turn, was hurt in a railroad accident and taken to the hospital, wben the doc tor asked her what was the matter with her. One of her limbs she said was injured. “Well” he returned, “ but which limb?” “Oh, I can’t tell you, doctor, but it is one of my limbs.” “Oh nonsense!” cried the doctor, out of all patience; which is it-the limb you thread needle with?” “No sir,” she answered with a blush: “ the limb I wear a garter on.” A cross-eyed squire fined an irishman who having used a little too much of tbe craythur, was foolish enough to let the craythur use him. Pat on leaving the ofiice met a friend to whom he held forth: “Be jabers, and I was fined, Martin” “ Ah, who find find your?” “That’s telliu’ jist. ’Twas a man there who's aither a justice of the peace or a piece of justice, and I don’t know which, and he’s lift handed in both eyes.” I say, fellows,” remarked an idler to several of his companions, “ let us see who can tell the biggest lie.” “All right?” said one: ‘Tm the biggest fool in Boston.” “Oh, pshaw!” exclaimed the first contemptuously “ we agreed to tell nothing bat lies, and you commence by telling the truth.” “The company shall never get another cent of my money,” said an angry lady, in a train. “How can you help yourselt ? You’ve got to travel on the road, or move to some other part of the country,” sneeringly remarked the con-duetor, who had offended her. “Why,” retorted the lady, “ I’ll pay my fare to you, and then I'll be bound that the company will never get the money.” A gentleman was seated with other persons in tbe room, where a country j ^ l sat upright and uttterly silent. Silence, indeed fell upon the entire party. and the gentleman first alluded to, said in what he supposed to be an almost inaudible tone, aside: “Awful jause.” “ I guess sir,” exclaimed the ndignant country girl, jumping up, ‘you’d have awtul paws too, if you had to do all the scrubbing 1 does.” TheHigganum Manufacturing com-l> any has added to its force twenty Swedish operatives. F a . m c i e r s ' O o l i a i m i . Cover asparagus with a thick coating of manure, first cutting the tops and burning. If the tops are not bomed, the seed, if scattered through the manure, will sprout and prove as tronl>le-some to exterminate as qianyof <mr common weeds. Cold-frames for the protection of cabbages and other plants should not be covered except at night until very severe weather. The plan should be to keep the plants from growing as well as from freezing. Tbe best plan for storing cabbages is to invert the heads and cover with four to six inches of earth, leaving the roots exposed. A dnr place where the watff will not stand %ould be selected. Store celery in trenches a foot wide and deep enough to receive, the stalks, placing the plants as close as possible without usmg any earth, and cover with boards and straw, gradually in creasing tbe thickness of ihe covering as the weather becomes more severe. Spinach will be all the better in the spring for a slight covering of hay or leaves, applied just as the ground begins to freeze. An experienced feeder, one who keeps a large number of cowa,- who feeds nigh, informs the Main* Farmtr that from long and careful trial, he finds one bushel ot curn as good aa two bushels of barley too feed to eowa, horses or swine. As regards tbe raising of wheat or barley, he says that and of tbe best of Kenebec county farmers, this past season raised 50 bushels 'ot wheat from 13 bushels sowing, and 47 1-2 bushels of barley from 12 1-3 bushels sowing, a small yield! The market will never be glutted with good butter, any more than the world will be overstocked with fine paintings and sculpture. Let no one think that he can at once vault into success either in making or selling. He must begin at the bottom and work up. He may labor at a loss for several years. The only way is to keep at it; read, think and work; get good customers, first at tbe price of store butter, if need be; make your bntter a necessary article upon their tables; let them find that its quality is unvarying, and then they will be willing to pay what it is worth. —Tribune. One of my lady readers who “ has the care of the milk of fifteen cows,’^ writes to say that the streaked appearance orbutter is caused by akimafaig tbe milk when in different cOnditi«a4; that is, if some of the milk is skimm jd wben it is thick, and at other times when scarcely sour, or at any stage between these two points, that tbe result-iiig butter will be streaked. This may be one of the causes, but it is not tbe only one. Careful examination shows these sireaks to be composed of casein, but not in the form in which it exists in buttermilk, hence I am inclined to that tbe cause is to be found in some peculiarity of the churning, which separates the casein, or cheese, from the butter, so that they, a f te rw a ^ become mechanically m ix ^ and cannot be separated. - Journal of the Farm. Ashes and Bones fob Gbape s .—^We are fully convinced of another fact le-garding the fertilization of the grape, which is of the highest importance. Animal excrement or stable manure we re* gard as unsuite 4 to its successful Cultivation ; or, at least, it is far better to employ the fertilizing agents which are so largely found in the plant-structure and in the fruit. Potash, phosphoric acid, and lime are great food sU^ilca which tbs grape .demands, and they cannot flourish unless these elements are abundantly supplied. We fertilize our vineyards and grape bordeis with un-leacbed ashes and dissolved bones, and obtain most abundant returns.—Dr. Nichols. Tbe following experiments of M. Le-bouf of Atgenteuil, upon the value of coal-ashes, show.that in the ashes alone without any admixture of soil or any manure, plants may grow and come to maturity. Thus, having filled three pots with ashes, be planted in the first, wheat, in the second, oats, and in the third strawberries. The growth was accomplished during the summer, the wheat and oats ripening and producing full heavy grains. The straw of the wheat attained a height of about 4 feet 9 Inches, while that of the oats grew to about three feet 6 inches. These experiments have been several times repeated, with the same success. Tbe following sensible remarks of a correspondent we copy from the Ckmn-try Gentleman, on the much mooted question-will firming pay? “It hi^ ufien been a cause of regret to mr, is looking over the different agricultural papers to see so many complaints front fanners in relation to their business not paying. And then we quote or point to tbe merchant as an example of prosperity compared with ourselves, little thinking that if they pnblisbed their complaints as freely, we should find their papers and magazines overrun with accounts of failures. It is with farming as with everything else, not tbe business that makes tbe man, but the man tbe bnsiness. Farmers, as a class, try to do too much. It is one thing putting in a crop, and another thing taking care of it. I think that if we war<3 to give the thought and labor to the different crops wbich they demand, our complaints would b« far fewer than they are. All tbe Patrons of Husbandry, all the clubs, all the agricultural papers in the country, will not help us, if we do not try to help ourselves. So far as I have observed, those who do the most grambling, do the least work and thinking.”
