VINEGAR. “S 4Th GALLON S of first rate, three yeare J.VV old VINEGAR, for sale at the Confectionary of JOHN SMITH. March 15 102 ther near one—his father had a plantation, and made bacon, barley and cotton: Tom had ne ver been a mile from home—only to the mill, which was a mile and a quarter—and to the meeting house, which was three miles, of a Sun day. When he was 17, he was a big boy then, he wanted to see the world: So his father loaded the wagon with cotton, and put in his four best horses, and gave it in charge of Tom to take to market. “You are a shrewd boy,” says the old man to him, “and can take care of yourself —but mind and keep clear of gambling houses, and tippling houses, and baw r dy houses, and you will do well enough.” Away went Tom, ponder- ingupontlie last w ? ords of the old man; “Keep clear of tippling houses, bawdy houses and gam ing houses! What could the old gentleman mean?” he said to himself. They were things he had never heard of before, of course his cu riosity was excited—but he meant to do as his father had told him and avoid the temptations. Tom sold his cotton, and put 500 dollars into his breeches pocket—a larger sum than he had ever seen before. Tom marched up and down ■the principal streets in Crabsborough, feeling the importance acquired by having so much money about him. He passed by a confection ary, stopping awhile to gaze at the pretty things in the windows. “Won’t you buy something to carry to your pretty sweetheart?” said the shopman politely to him: Tom started—says he to himself, “how the dickens should he know that I had a sweetheart?” The faet was, Tom had had a sneaking notion after the millers daughter for the last month. Tom went into the shop. A thousand things were staring him in the face. He thought he ought to buy something, after such a polite invitation, and as long as his secret was discovered, ’twas useless to try to conceal it. “What will you have?” a- gain asked the smiling shopman; “here’s fruit of all sorts, preserves, candies, and jellies, cakes, kisses and trinkets—every thing proper For a young gentleman to give his sisters, or his sweet heart.” Tom thought of his sisters for the first time—so he selected a piece of candy for each, and a bead purse for the miller’s daughter.— “Take a glass of cordial, my young friend,” said the cunning confectioner to him on part ing; “and thank you for your custom.” Tom swallowed the cordial, and felt himself a man. He rambled about till night, gazing at the sights and staring at the shop windows. After sup per, he said to himself, “what a fool I am to go to bed every night at dark. I will walk a- bout town till nine o’clock.” His father’s ad monition then came into his head; “to keep clear of tippling houses, bawdy houses and gambling houses,” and he resolved to follow the old gen tleman’s instructions, (though it may be sup posed that he had but an indistinct idea of the places to which he alluded,) and away he strol led to his friend the confectioner’s, and called for a glass of that same cordiaL Tom felt his ideas brighten, and his heart expand. He be came communicative, and asked many ques~- tions. The wily shopman led him on to speak of himself, till he learnt his whole history, event to the sum of money in Ills breeches pocket.— Tom indiscreetly went so far as to tell thb man ner of his parting with his friends, and the par ting advice of his father, tcT “keep away from tippling houses, bawdy houses and gambling houses.” The confectioner laughed in his sleeve. “Very proper advice,” says he, “indeed; and what you ought by all means to follow—many a young man is ruined by visiting houses of that description,” andhe gave a wink tojliispart ner behind the counter. While Tom was still there, sipping his cordial, and talking of mo rality, two females entered the shop; they were lively laughing girls, and looked tenderly on. Tom, who was mute with admiration. The shopkeeper seeing the interest they had exci ted in his breast, already warmed with the cor dial, kindly offered to introduce him to them, whispering, that as they were unprotected, it was no more than polite, to offer to sec them home. Tom jumped at the idea—lie was in troduced accordingly to Miss Filipina Scoggins and her cousin Miss Doloretta Muggins. He found them as familiar and condescending, as a bashful youth could wish; and when he offered to see them home, they timidly and thankfully accepted his proffer. Tom walked with his new acquaintances to the; door of their dwel ling, which was a fine white house on the edge of the town—but he could not be prevailed up on to enter, though earnestlj’ solicited. The fact was, ho thought his present dress hardly suitable, to enter so fine _a house with such beautiful ladies in; but as they were so kind, he promised to call and spend the next evening with them. He then hastened back to his friend the confectioner, and told him his success, and his proposed visit, who encouraged him by all means to proceed. He then offered, as he was a stranger, to show him some of the curiosities of the place; which Tom eagerly accepted.— He accordingly followed through the passage, and up stairs into a large room, where was a billiard table, a faro bank, and sundry other gaming arrangements. After introducing our hero to sundry of his friends, he plead business, and went out, after telling him to make himself easy, as he was among gentlemen. * Tom gazed at the heaps of money till his eyes and mouth watered. “By gong,” (said he aloud,) “if all that are money was mine, I reck on when Tom Tadpole hoed corn again jtwould be for something!” “Tadpole! did you say?” exclaimed the man with the money, in a feign ed surprise. “I wonder if you are the son of my old friend Nichodemus Tadpole of Toads- borough?” “The very same, by gong! does you know father?” “Know him, my dear young friend! wan’t we two years together in the last war? Didn’t I nurse nim like a brother when that cursed cannon ball tore off his breeches , and tho hind part of his left thigh?

Here April 19 f28 A | thesharper caught Tem in his arms, and squee zed him a’ most to death-. The fact was Tom; simpleton ?.s he was, had told all of this to his friend the confectioner, and tho confectioner retold it to his partner, not forgetting the im portant item of the 500 dollars. Torn was o- vercome at this burst of feeling from an entire stranger, and felt all of a sudden a wonderful affection fo r the supposed friend of his father; He did not like to appear ignorant, or to have Spikes think his father had forgotten so true a friend; and so he replied that he had often heard his father mention him. Tom saw with admi ration the money on the table change owners; and he began to think it was the easiest way in the world to make money. He wished he had a small sum to try his luck with; true, he had money in his pocket, but it belonged to his fa ther, and was all in large bills, and carefully wrapped up in brown paper,and tied with a red string—he couldn’t think of taking that. At last, his new friend, with an unaccountable gen erosity removed his difficulty, and that in tho genteelest way in the world. “You are a stran ger here, Mr. Tadpole, (says he,) perhaps I may be of some use to you—if you want money or credit, just apply to me—I served your father many a good turn, and never lbstany thing by it either—I am willing to serve his son in tho same way.” Tom acknowledged his gratitude; and confessed that he wished the loai^of five dollars. “Five hundred my boy, if you wish itj” exclaimed the gambler. Tom took the money, and laid a dollar of it on the table. In a minute it had won another. The gambler congratulated him on his luck, and declared he was one of those who were born to be rich.— Tom continued successful, and when he left, had twenty dollars clear money in his pocket! His eyes were now open: he had found out a way to make a fortune, and he wa» a going to make it. The next day he spent at the confectionary and in the gambling room. He found out the more cordial he drank, the happier he felt, and the more he bet at the Faro bank the richer he became; till before night, he had got fifty dot* lars in his pocket. Evening had now come, and he resolved to go and spend it with his female friends, Miss Filipina Scoggins, and Miss Doloretta Muggins^ He accordingly set out, having ust purchased a clean stiff shirt collar and a bran new red cra vat, in which he looked vastly genteel, as the young ladies told him. They were powerfully rejoiced at seeing him, and treated him with the greatest attention. Wine, and cake, and other sweet things were offered him. He in his turn, pulled from his pockets the candy he had purchased for his sisters, and the bead purse he had intended to bestow on the miller’s daughter. The candy he delivered to Miss Scoggins and'the purse to Miss Muggins, who were delighted by his generosity, and insisted upon his staving all night. But this was going too far; he had sense enough to know that he ought not to stay all night on so short an ac quaintance. A hard rain coming on however, and a dark night, soon reconciled it to his feel J ings. Tom was in love with Miss Doloretta, that was clear—Miss Filipina had accused him of it, and he blushed and stammered when she did so; and on the latter leaving the room; as if by accident, he mustered up courage and ac-’ knowledged the corn. She of course blushed a little, or tried to, hesitated and finally admit* ted that she was pleased with him marvellous ly. Tom and Doloretta continued talking all alone by themselves, (for Filipina. never came back any more,) till 11 o’clock. What they found to talk about is more than I can guess —-only that they engaged to marry each o- ther pretty soon. How Tom spent the night I could never exactly ascertain, as the light somehow accidentally went out; just after she went into the chamber to show' him his bed.— Tom was back though to his lodgings at the tavern before day break next morning, and got up-at the usual rime as if nothing had happen ed; The ensuing day Tom spent in a similar manner with the preceding. He lounged a- bout the gaming house, and was suffered to win ten or fifteen dollars more. He was advised to increase his bets; it was plain he was a fa vorite of fortune, and all that was necessary was a bold spirit to wiu his way to wealth.— Tom did as he was told, and with various luck, but always left off a little on the gain. When night came, he bent his steps in the same di rection as on the preceding evening, and again spent the night at tho house of his inamorata, Miss Doloretta Muggins. Things were now going on swimmingly for our hero. All the morning he drank cordial and eat pound cake at the confectioner’s. And as soon as the gaming table was open, he was the first one at it, betting as though his life de pended on it. He bet largely, sometimes win ning and sometimes losing; till finally, he haz arded all his money upon one stake, and lost all he had previously won. More money was loaned him however by his friend Jo Spikes, and he continued to play. When he lost again, it did not require a great deal of persuasion to borrow part of the 500 dollars belonging to his father out of l;'s breeches pocket, as he knew he could replace it again very shortly. But the first hundred dollars he was unablo to re pay, so he borrowed another and another, un til the whole was soaked up. He now found to his chagrin that his credit was no longer good with his friend Jo Spikes—he could not borrow a dollar from cither him or the confec tioner—although he declared upon his honor that unless he could borrow he was a ruined man! that he had spent his last dollar, and all the money he had got for his cotton. He was reminded that he still had a good team of hor ses and wagon, and that if he shou Id sell a horse there would be no doubt that ho would shortly redeem all he had lost, and win as much more* Driven to desperation, he resorted to this rash expedient, and a purchaser was sooa fpund for his best horse at half his value. This answer ed for a while, and Fortune seemd to be more favorable to him. But alas, it soon went with tho other. Another horse went, and finally the other two and the wagon, soon followed suit. He was then asked if he had n6t got a watch* or ttme other valuable that he could raise the
