A NEW YORK TRICK. The New York wits, it is well known are so fond of amusing themselves and others by pub lishing accounts of “ Yankee Tricks," that if they cannot find them ready made, they will manufacture them out of doth. Thatthe Yan kees possess as John Bull says “a great deal of cleverness in the art of trickery,” is not de nied. But that they are the only ‘‘clever fel lows,” in Uncle Sain’s dominions, is denied without hesit ition. In proof of the truth of this denial. I take the liberty to lay before the pap lic the following veritable stoty. Within the memory of many, still it, thehnd of tfie living, it came to pass that a citizen of the commercial European joui tried to the Green Mountains and Gianie.t Slates ; and he must needs pass through the land of steady ha bits. Ou his way through this highly favored re gion, about the going down of the sun, it be hoved him toseok a lodging place for the night where fie might procnr« • «f.eshnieni for Uirus<-lt j >mi iris faiihhil animal ou which lie rode. By this time he hail become sufficiently acquainted w ,li the country to know that if be steered for the steeple of a church, lie was sure to find hard by it the sign-post of a tavern ; for iiom old t’.nes, litis people have been famous for “scratching hard” to provide for the body as well as the soul; to gain the tieasuie of this world as well as that which is to come. Our traveller alighted at the door of the inn, and soon found Jonathan, the landlord. On inquiring if he could be furnished with accom modation for irimst-lf and horse thiough the i) ght, he received for answer, 1 guess you cun.” „Then 1 rocken I will stop wid you,” replied the traveller. The horse being accmmodated in the barn, and the man in an apartment separate from tin bar room, Jonathan sat down and began at once to smoke his pipe and Iris guest* The questions that are usually put on like occasions in.this land of freedom, were speedily proposed by Jonathan, namely—“ What may I call your name? Where are you from? Where arc you going? What is your business ?” To the que ries, the stranger replied: “I am of Dutch extraction ;my name,is Van Dam Quiz“m; 1 come f orn Yawk ; I am bound to Mas'.ichooist, Vermont, ll.iriipshire, and the towns round, and my business is to speculate on cats.” At the word speculate, Jonathan laid down his pipe and eagerly enquired how many cals h° wanted, and what he could affoid to give a piece for a 10l of them. The reply was that he expected to obtain them at from fifty cents to a dollar each, according to the age, size, and suitable training of the animal. Jonathan’s next query was to the meaning of the phrases “suitable training ” The reply was that the animals must be confined, in an upper story of the hou-e, where light wasadmit tt i through one pain of glass only. Here they, must be ted high, and every third day or oftener, a man must enter the apartment, fasten the dem after him. and I ash seveiely with a stout whip, till they become stj , tame and obedient After some conversation it was stipulated that at the return of Mynheer Van Dan Qniz’em from Iris exeurtion to the North, he should be supplied by the said Jonathan with a number of cats and kittens, not less than one hundred, trained according to the discipline aforesaid. The next morning came, the sttanger proceed ed on hi* journey, and Jonathan went busily to work to fit his garret for the reception of this new article of speculation. was near his establishment another essential requisite lor the centre of a new England vilhge, namely, a large public school house, filled with sturdy boy's and ruddy girls. To these Jonathan gave; I - „ ,1_ j- , ■_ i«m i-■ ■ notice that he would pay from 4 to 9 pence a piece for as many as they would bring him; I payment to be made according to the age and size of the animal produced. Thrs was as iu teresting a speculation to the young urchins, as ■: the landlord’s expected one was to him, so at "the end of the week the tavern garret became prison of a full hundred of the feline race. 'At sirrdowii vu 'Sstttrdavj.Jonathan furnished a supply of food, sufficient to susfaiffUiS prhumi-. ers over the Sabbath, and then set his house in oider for keeping holy time, it is true, during the night and day devoted to holy resting, there was such a noise in the garret resembling at one time the racing of a regiment of rats, and at an other the music of the celebrated billings 'per formed by a singing school in their earliest at tempt in psalmody. Jonathan was then many times tempted to ascend and inflict the prescri bed discipline; bur concluded on the whole that this was the suggestion of the Evil One to in duce him to break the Sabbath, ho deferred it till sundown of the Lord’s day, at which holy times ceased in the land of steady habits. The sun had no sooner sunk behind the we*-’ tern hills, than Jonathan’s go-to meeting dress was exchanged for his frock and trowsers, and Belamy’s True Religion Delineated, laid aside for the enormous cart-whip. Thus equiped he mounted the top-most steps of the stair-case, carefully entered Iris cattery, fastened the door, and began to lay about him with his whip most lustily. Such a battle now raged as was never sung by any poet, either ancient or modern, se rious or comic; and for this plain reason, such a contest neither happened before, and in all human probability never will hereafter. To die dogm meal attack of the assailant, there was opposed a eaf-egorical defence by the assailed. Some us the latter, in a state of desperation, sprung like lightening at the paneofglass to se cure retreat, and one more haidy than the rest, soon succeeded in dashing it to atoms and fal ling into the street; and several immediately fol lowed with all possible celerity. Whether they reached the ground feel downwardsand unharm ed, or whether they belonged to I lie list of killed or wounded, I have not heard. Mean-while the main body attacked Jonathan vi ct armis, which has been inteipre’ed tooth and nail. Now rt was dial he ioufk.; with stentorian vociferation, “fire ! murder f blood and thunder !” ’till the door was burst open by those who came to his relief, when he went down stairs more suddenly than ever he came up, and in a much more unnatural and uncouth manner—lor lie was won. to ascend head over heels, but now he descended heels over head, followed and run over by neatly a hundied ani mals of the fiercest nature, seeking wliat ap peared to them “long lost liberty.” As the cats dropt down from the window and rushed out at the street door, they were met by the neighbours, who had assembled about the door inconsequence of the commencement of the time for secular affairs, and the alarm winch had been given. These started with no less wonderment and affright, than was occasioned by the midnight match of the Windham Fogs t<» the funeral of their departed chieftain, which has been so sweetly celebrated in song hy one ot the bards of the western world. Jurr thau was scarcely cured of his wounds, when the fortneighl ehpsed, at the end of which, Myn heer Van Din Quiz’em had agreed to call an<l fulfil his part of the engagement. With tine Dutch punctuality he called upon the land lord to know if the cats were ready, assuring him the nyoney.was on hand ready to pay for them—“Darnation seize the cats, ami the money too 1” exclaimed Jonathan. “1 guess, sure enough, your name is Dani Q for you have played upon me a quiz, a bite, and a scratch into the bargain. But howsomever if you’ll promise never to tell on’i, you shall h ive as much as you and your horse can eat ami drink in welcome, free gfsiiis for nothing at all.” Thisour traveller faithfully promised, declar ing it was merely a slight off-sei for the wood nutmtgs, horn gun flints, and oak leaf and skunk cabbage cigars, and turnip and red flan nel sausages, which he purchased of the puri a nical tin pedlars. Whether he kept his word, or whether like the seceding mason, he felt bound in conscience to reveal the secret (o the world, or whether the landlords wife told it as a profound secret to one of her sister gossips, which is the surest way to make any trans actions public, is not ascertained. This is cer tain, by some means or other, tfre “cat has been let out of the bag,” and the story is here related as a warning to all to be careful what question they ask, and still more, to be careful what credit they give to the answer they re ceive.— Yeoman's Gazette.

It is before you ait this moment.” ’ : t Fite worthy Crispinian was astounded.— He looked sedately and rubbed his forehead ; but all to no purpose ; he case Was still a mystery. ’ “Tiue,” said he, “you gave me the bottle oU ' beer, I can’t demand pay for that; but I hats both one is now gone, and I have received no money.” Then he again gravely considered the matter, and finally abruptly broke uut with this conclusion. “’Steath, take it, neighbor, it is just as you say, but I’ll be darned If 1 sets into it.”—Lynn Weekly Messenger. > BOW! WOW! WOW! Shuter, travelling in the Brighton stagiU with four . idies one very’ warm day, the party, were thrown into the utmost consternation by the coach suddenly stopping to receive a sixth, person who was a perfect Falistaff in appears ance. The ladies expressed their sorrow to Shuter at this additional encumbrance; and hv with a smile desired them to take comfort, for he would soon remove the man mountain. Accordingly, when the unpleasant intruder had taken his seat, and the coach was one*. . more moving, Shuter with much gravity asked one of the ladies her motive for visiting Brigh* ton. She repl od, her phtsician had ordered i her to but lie for a depression of spirits. He i turned to her next neighbor, and reposted hi* : inquiries, she was nervous; the third L. lions— I all had some complaint of which the sea was • to be the cure. When each had told this hif* i tory of ilieir disorders, the humorist, heaving e ) tremendous sigh exclaimed—“ All your coin i plaints out together are trifling to mine; they • aie nothing-—Oh no! mine is dreadful but ttr , think of! “Good Lord, sir, ciied the fat pas» ■ senger, with astonishment, “what is vour complaint—you look exceedingly well?” “Oh, i sir, replied Shuter, looks are deceitful. Yoo must know- that three days ago I had the mis fortune to be bit by a mad dog, for which I ain informed the only cure is immersion in salt wa tei. I am going therefore for this priiipose; for though I am, as you observe, looking well, *yet the fit takes me in a moment,—-when I’ bark like a dog, and endeavour to bite every one near me.” Lord have mercy on us!” ejaculatedlhe fat traveller, in a tune that was meant to be a whisper. “But sir, you—you are not in earnes ty! you—’’ “Bow, wow!” “Cuacnman! coachman, I say—let me out!* “Now, your honor, what’s the matter?” A mad dogs the matter! Hydrophobia’s thfi matter!” “Bow, wow, wow!” “Open the door never mind the sjep#. There thank Heaven! 1 ainonce more in safe iv!—let thote who like it, ride inside: I’ll mount the box—the Lord be praised for my escape!” Accordingly he continued on the outside of the coach for the remainder of the journey, much to the satisfaction of the come dian and iris companions, who were exceed ingly merry at his expense—the former eth ry now and then regaling him with a sonorous “Bow, xvow, wow!” THE FLOWERS OF RHETORICS. A young counsellor just called to the bay, was employed to prosecute a highwayman; it; describing the nature of offence, tiiej onrfg aspirant to judicial honor* thus metaphorically delivered himself: “The prosecutor has been robbed by that atom of humanity now trembe ling at the bar before you, of a quantity of ore,' which being purified by the fir<*, cut into cir cular pieces, and impressed with the inriige*of* the king, and the arms of the state, purchases ihe necessaries, the conveniences, and the hixv tiries of life!” A plain spoken farmer who upon the jury, and who hatT been gazing in wonder at the young barrister, at length turned to the foreman <fc exclaimed, “ VVhv T he Hanged if the m;iu dosen’t mean money!” If he had said it in one word - , would not all been implied ? ,
