intpplcmcnt to Dailg Ijcratd. The Savannah Daily Herald How Dbacon Smith Courted the Widow.-. The deacon’s wagon stopped one morning before the widow Jones’s door, and gave the usual country sign that he wanted somebody in the house by dropping the reins and sitting double, with his elbows on bis knees. Out tripped the widow, lively as a cricket, with a tremendous black ribbon on her snow white cap. •‘Well, ma’am Jones, perhaps yon don't want to sel! one of vour cows, now, lor noth ing, any way, do you ?” “Well, there, Mr. Smith, you could not have spoken my mind better. A poor lone woman like me does not know what to do with so many creatures, and I should be glad to trade if we can fix it." So they adjourned to the meadow Deacon Smith looked at Roan—then at the widow— at Brindle—then at the widow—at the Down ing cow—then at the widow again—and so on through the whole forty. The same <ydl was made for a week, but the deacon could not decide what cow he wanted. At length, on Saturday, when the widow Jones was in a hurry to get through her baking for Sun day—and had “ever so much to do in the house," as ail farmers’ wives aud widows do on Saturday—she was a little impatient.— Dacon Smith was as irresolute as ever. “That ere Downing is a pretty fair crea ture,” said the deacon, “but”—he stopped to glance at the widow’s face; and then walked round her—not the widow, but the cow. “The Downing cow I knew before the late Mr. Jones bought her.” Here he sighed at the allusion to the late Mr Jones ; she sigh ed, and they both looked at each other. It was a highly interesting moment. “Old Roan is a faithful old milch, and so is Brindle, bat I have known the Downing belter." A long stare succeeded his speech, the pause was getting awkward, and at last Mrs. Jones broke out: . “Lord, Mr. Smith ! if I'm the cow you want, ho 6ay so !’’ The intentions of the deacon and the widow were publisned the next week. The following is a psalm sung in Osmoth erly Church, Yorkshire, England, above a century ago. It was composed by the par ish clerk on the occasion of the murrian—a severe distemper that raged among the horned cattle in the year 1747. It was sung and chorused by the whole congregation in the church. The fonr first stanzas contained an account of the cattle that died, and the names of the farmers to whom they belonged. The remaining verses were as follows : No Christian's boll nor cow, they say, But. takes it out of hand; And we shall have no cows at all, I doubt, within this land. The doctors, through they all have spoke Like learned gentlemen, Aud told us how the entrails look Os cattle dead and green; Yet they do nothing do at all, With all their learning’s store ; So Heaven drive out this plague away, And vex us not no more. This piece was so well received that after the service it was desired again by all the congregation, except five farmers, who wept, declaring that the lines were too moving. The iniuister, on going out said to the clerk, “Why, John, what psalm was that we had to-day—it was not of David's ?” “No, no," quoth John, big with the honor he had ac quired, “David never made such a psalm since he was born; this is one of my own.” A Cat Story.— A short time since the pi lot boatjCoquette, while lying at Marblehead, thirty miles from Boston, took on board in the forenoon a cat which was presented to Captain MartiD by an old citizen of that town. At about eight o'clock the same even ing, the boat arrived at Lewis’ wharf in Bos ton when the cat got on the wharf and dis appeared. At twelve o'clock the next day, the cat arrived safely home at her former master’s house in Marblehead.—Boston Htr ald. Port Royal House, HILTON HEAD, S. C.
