Laughter very often shows the bright side of a
man. It brings out his happier nature, andshows
of wbat sort of stuff he is really made. Some
how we feel as if we never thoroughly know a
roan until we hear him laugh. We do not fc-el
“at home” with him till then. We do not mean
flfemere snigger, but a good hearty round laugh,
solemn, sober visage, like a Sunday's drew,
tells nothing of the real man. Ue may be. very
silly or very profound, very cross or very jolly.—
Let us hear him Jangh, and we can decipher him
at once, and tell how his heart heats. Carlyle j
says that “no man who has once heartily and
wholly laughed, can be and irreclaima
ble man. llow much lies in laughter —the ci- j
pher-key wherewith we decipher the whole man!
Some men wear an everlasting batreh 6troper; in
the smile of others lies a cold glitter, as of ice; the
fewest are able to laugh, but only sniff, and titter,
and snigger, from the throat outwards, or, at best,
produce some whiffling, husky eachination, as if
they were laughing through woo!; of none such
comes good. The man who cannot laugh is on
ly fit for treasons, stratagems, or spoils; and his
whole life is already a treason and a stratagem.”
. We have received four different replies to the
question, “What becomes of newsboys!” which
wo were tempted to ask yesterday. Only one of
them deserves notice, and its merits depend on
the fact that it comes from one of the fraternity,
and has every mark of being authentic. We sub
join the following extract from it:
“I’ll tell you all about the newsboy, I will. We
don't die when we're done selliri’ pajiers —no, sir
ree—we’re more particular, wide awake, than all
that; and as for gwino to Heaven to cat buck
wheat cakes—blessed if wo do—like the fire ’Ni
liilator, that’s nil yax. We aint very anxious to
leave the world, nor so green, old fellow, as you
’spose. When wo gets along considerable well,
and have money to spare, we buys books, and
reads ’em—more than some of you does —and
then we take up with better work thnn soilin’ the
papers, old hoss—we begin to go ahead.
So, you never seed a newsboy, after he’s done
soilin’ papers, in business or trade—no, now, didn’t
you f Well, I did. I seen ’em in superfine coats,
tip-top boots, and bang-up vest-coats, drivin’in
carriages and likiV all creation in smartness. I
seen ’em merchants, lookin’ ns tall as, a gas lamp,
and thinkin’ themselves considerable pumpkins, I
can tell you. Hut there’s one thing you nor I
ever seed, and that’s a newsboy that ever turned
loafer—what d’ye say to that/ Wo’ro indepen
dent citizens of a flee country—wo are, and work’
for a livin’ like men, and when we stand treat to
a friend, we never docs it with nobody else’s money
but our own. Wo show what n free press and the
American eagle chii do, ami wo get along like
thunder when we have a mind to ; and that’s
what becomes of the newsboys.”— N. 0. Delta.
A Fair Okkku.—Dr. Franklin, it is said, once
made the following oiler to a young inan : —“Make
a full estimate of all that you owe and that is ow
ing to you. As fart as you can collect pay over
to those you owe. If you cannot, renew your
noto every yesi, and get the last security you can.
Go to business diligently aud be industrious; waste
no idle moments; bo very economical in all things;
pride; bo faithful in your duty to God;
day; do unto all men as you would they should
do unto you. If you are too needy in circum
stances to give to the poor, do whatever else is in
your power for them cheerfully ; but if you can,
nelp tho poor and unfortunate. Pursue this
course diligently for seven years, and if you are
not happy, comfortahlo and independent in your
circumstances, como to mo and 1 will pny your
Young people try it.
Dr. Abernathy, tho celebrated physician of
London, it will bo remembered, was one of the
roost eccentric men of his time. Few things dis
pleased him more than having a patient giving
tiresome accounts of his troubles. A woman
knowing Abernathy’s love of the laconic, having 1
burnt her hand, called at his office. Showing
him her hand, she said—
“A poultice,” quietly answered tho learned
The next day tho woman returned and said,
“Continue tho poultice.”
In a week she made her last call, and her
speech was lengthened to threo monosyllables:
“Well, your fee!”
“Nothing,” said tho once pleased physician.
“You are the most sensible woman I ever saw.’
Mistakks.—lt is a mistake for girls to suppose,
became there is a “man in the moon,” that lie
will fall in love with their “putty” faces.
It is a mistake to suppose, because an honest,
industrious young man is not a professional “char
acter,” that he should not be respected.
It is a mistake to suppose that money unac- 1
eompanied by brains and justice, should be” a pass- 1
port of true aristocracy.
It is a sRd mistake to suppose that, because you 1
hate a “fellow mortal,” all other persons do the
It is a mistake to suppose that all pretty gills
are “angels,” for they arn’t by a darned sight
It is an awful mistake to suppose that a printer
an work for nothing and furnish his own tobacco.
It is a great mistake, too, to supjiose that eve
ry long-faced church member is a saint.
In \ Dilemma.—We were much amused by
an incident which a friend of ours related to ns the
ether day. A gentleman who had been absent
for a considerable time, and who, during his ab
sence had raised a pretty luxuriant crop of whis
kers moustaches, <fec. visited a relative, whose
child—an artless little girl of five or six years
he was very fond of. The littie girl made no de
monstrations towards saluting him with a kiss as
“Why, child,’ said the mother, “don’t you know
your uncle Hiram ? Why don’t you give him a
“Why, raa,” returned the little girl, with tho
moat perfect simplicity, “I don’t see any place!”
“Faith,” said Pat as he was going along the
street with a bag of cheese. “Faith,” if any body
will tell me how many cliasses I have iu me bag,
HI give him the whole three.
“I guess you have three,” said a Yankee.
“Take them,” said Pat, “and may the devil
mawl the sowl of him who towid ye.”
s3T ,‘Shakspenro haunts me night and day,”
said a stage-strutting here, “That he is so eternal
ly haunted,” remarked a bystander, “is not be
wondered at, at alt, for be has most cruelty mur
dered him in orcrything he has undertaken.”
ftnfirs Choate. M
| Rufus Choate is a picture to look at,
’ crowder to spout, no is about seven feet six, wr
six feet seven, in his socks; sujiie as an cel, and
I wiry as a cork screw-. His face is a compound of
wrinkles, “yaller janders,” and jurisprudence. Ha|
j sha small, keen piercing black eves, and a Us' a i
shaped like a mammoth goose egg, big end up
1 his hair, black and curly, much resembling a ba?
lof wool in “admirable order,” or a brush heap in a
!ga!c of wind. Ilis body lias no particular shape;
and his wit and legal “dodges” have set many a
Judge in a snicker and so confounded jurors, as to
! make it almost impossible for them to speak plain
English, or tell the truth for the rest of their na
tural lives. Rufus is great on twisting and rolling
himself up, squirming around, and prancing jump
ing, and kicking np the dust, when steam’s up.—
llis oratory is first rate, nnd Ills arguments inge
nins and forcible. He generally makes a ten strike
—judge rad jury down at the end of every sen
tence. lie is great on flowery expressions, and
high faloolin “flub dnbs.” Strangers mostly think
he’s crazy, and the rest scarcely understand what
its all about lie invoices his time and election

one’s self put through a course of law. Rufus
Choate is about fifty years of age.'perhaps over. —
He is considered the ablest lawyer in New En
gland, or perhaps; in the United States. Ilis
j hand-writting can’t be deciphered without the aid
|of a pair of compasses and a quadrant. His an
tograpby somewhat resemplcs the map of Ohio,
and looks a spiece of crayon sketching, done in the
dark, with a three pronged fork. Has has been in
the Semite, and may he, if he has time to fish
for it, President of tho United States.
The Rnby-Jfuinper beat.
Some cute yankec in Boston has invented and
brought out a grand concern for nursing infants,
You put your squaller into tho machine, and,
by a scries of straps, cogs, and screws, agitated
by the spasmodic splurges of the infant’s arms and
legs, the machine rolls gently over the floor, while
a species of hand organ music is emitted, equalling
ten penny-whistles and a dozen baby’s rattles. If
this fails to amuse the little “sugar-lump,” you
may turn a screw and set it in motion a manipula
tor, something like a human hand which “by
by’s”the “madder’s l>ox of diamonds,” tickles and
pats it until it roars with laughter or goes to sleep!
We believe the inventor intends to make sundry
additions to his baby-nurser, whereby it may dress
and undress the youngster, feed it, wash it, Ac.—
If thoso Yankee keep on a spell longer, the men
may, shut np shop nnd go a fishing, while the wo
men lie back in white kids and play overtures on
the accordian or piano. This equals the patent
“clequer,” and knocks the telescope, for seeing
through a brick, into tne “Fourth of July.”
Tile Life of an Editor.
There are few readers of newspapers who have
any adequate idea of the incessant toil required in
their publication. Capt. Marry att, who in his life
time had much bitter experience, held the follow
ing language on the subject:
“Newspaper literature is a link in the great
chain of miracles which prove the greatness
England, and every support should be given to
newspapers. The editors of these papers perform
a most enormous task. It is not tho writing of
the leading articles every week, whether inclined
or not, in sickness or health, in affliction, disease
of mind, winter or summer, year after year, tied
down tea task, remaining iu ono spot. It is like
hours. In itself, it appears nothing. The labor
is not manifest, nor is tho labor, but it is tho con
tinued attention which it requires, Your life be
comes, ns it were, the publication. One paper is
no sooner corrected and printed than another
comes. It is the stone of Sisyphus, nil endless re
petition of toil, a constant weight upon the mind,
a continual wearing upon the intellect and spirits,
demanding all the exertion of your faculties at
the same time that you are compelled to do the
severest drudgery. To write for a paper is very
well, but to edit one is to condemn yourself to
Fortune-Tbluko. —There is nothing more
silly than a belief in fortune-telling, whether we
consider the thing itself, or the description of
persons who profess the art—an art to which no
one of character or education ever pretends. But
such belief is scarcely- less dangerous than silly, es
pecially amongst young persons of the humble
classes. By exciting false hopes, it leads to false
steps; and unsettled habits, anxiety, disappoint
ment, dishonesty, ruin, and ignominious death,
have been directly or indirectly its consequences.
Many are induced to have their fortunes told from
mere idle curiosity; hut a lucky guess, or a pre
diction aceideutly verified even in part, may- take
such hold of the imagination that reason cannot
resume her former sway—beside that it is inexcu
sable to give encouragement to a raco of profli
gates, thieves and children-stealers.
£jrA writer says women require more sleep
than men; and farmers less than those engaged in
almost any other occupation. Editors, nnd re
porters, and doctors need no sleep at all. Lawyers
can sleep as much as they pleasa and thus keep
oat of mischief. Clergymen can sleep twelve
hours out of twenty four and can put the parish
to sleep once a week.
IC-tTAn auctioneer indulged in the following
little bit of tho pathetic;—“Gentlemen, if my fa
ther and mother stood where you do, and didn’t
buy these elegant boots’ when they were going for
one dollar, I should feel it my duty ns a son to
tell them both that they were false to themselves
and false to their country.”
jtrT A Yankee is never upset by the astonish
ing. He walks among tho Alps with his hands
in his pockets, and the smoke of his cigar is seen
among tho mists of Niagara. “One of this class
sauntered into the office of tho lightning telegraph,
and asked how long it would take to transmit a
message to Washington. “Ten minutes,” was
the reply. “I can’t wait,” was the rejoinder.
S&T A young gentleman who has just married
an undersized beauty, says that she might have
been made taller and larger, but that she is of
such precious materials, nature could not afford it
jCJTAn editor “out west,” in speaking of a co
temporary, says, that “To see him swell you would
swear he had been weaned on wood-cock: and
yet the time has been when ho could “bury- a
waxy tater without salt” ‘ Jl
US’ One poor beau told another that his new
coat was too short for him. “True,” answered he
of the short skirts: “I assure you, however, it will
be long enough before I get another.”
jC-tTTho maiden wept; and 1 said, “Why

House, under proj>er management, will no doubt mo

In addition to the arrival daily of a train of cars,
two or three lines of daily stages will run to and from
