A SEG .V R .
When the weather's unpleasant and dreary,
And the night unblest by a star.
How sweet to a smoker when weary,
Is the breath of a fragrant spgar '
What a balm to the spirit when lonely,
To gaze at the smoke as it flies !
And bright as the dreams, tho' dreams only,
That with each floating circlet arise !
When cares flesh is heir topcrplex us,
And trifles, more harassing far,
Arise in our path arid sore vex us,
llovv soothing a fragrant segar !
If friends should prove false and leave us,
W e can pass oft' the thing with a joke,
Nor allow tin ir desertion to grieve us,
But let the wound vanish in smoke.
When riches seem slow in collecting,
And prospects look gloomy as night,
; There’s nought like segars for directing
Our fancy to visions more bright.
Though life seems unpleasant and weary,
And its path unhiest by a star,
Yet the smoker will feel when lie's weary,
That there’s bliss in a fragrant segar.
Taking the Census.
Our next encounter was with an old lady
notorious in her neighborhood for her gar
tulity and simple mindedness. Having
been warned of her propensity, and being
somewhat hurtied when we called upon
her, we were disposed to get through busi
ness as soon as possible. Striding into the
house, and drawing our papers—“ Taking
the census, ma’am !” quoth we.
“Ah! well ! yes! bless your soul, take
a seat. Now do ! Are you the gen le
man that Mr. Fillmore has sent an to take
the scnsisl 1 wonder! well, how was
Mr. Fillmore and family when yo seed
We told her vve had never seen the
president; did'nl know iiim from a ’’side
of sole leather;” we had been written
to, to take the census.
“Well, now, there agin ! love your soul!
Well, l ’spose Mr Ft.lmore writ you a
letter, did he ?
Well there’s mighty little here to take
down times is haul; but it looks like
people can’t get their jest rights in this
country ; and the law is all for the rich and
none for the poor. Did you ever hear tell
of that case my hoys has got agin old
Simpson ? Looks like they will never git
to theeend of it. The children will suffer,
1 am mighty afeard. Did you ever see
Judge B ? Yes! Well, did you
ever hear him say what he was agwine to
do in the boys case agin Simpson; Not
vv t?u, Mjiui i you ax >jirn f !ic iicXt tin<o
you see him, and wiite me word, and tell
him what 1 say; I’m nothing but a poor
widow, and rny boys hasn’t got larniu,atid
old Simpson tuk ’em in. It’s a mighty
hatd case, and the will oughn’t never to a
been broke, but ”
Here we iulerpostd ami told the old la
dy that our time was precious. After a
good deal of trouble we got through with
the description of the members of her fa ini
ly, and the “statistical table” as far as the
“How many yards of cotton cloth did
you weave in ISSO, ma’am ?”
Well, now!—less see! You know
Sally Higgins that used to live in the
Smith setlement? poor thing, her daddy
druv her off—poor gal, she couidn t lieip
it. 1 dare say. Well, Sally she come to
stay wi me when the old man druv her
away, and she was a powerful good hand
t'» weave, and I did think she and help me a
power. Well, arter she'd bin here awhile,
her baby hit took sick, and old MissiSti ing
er she undertuk to help it she’s a power
ful good hand, old Miss Stiiuger, roots
and yearbs, and sicli like! Well, she made
a sort of a tea, as I was saying, and she
gin it to Sally’s baby, it got wuss—the
cieetur—and she gin it lea, and looked
like, the mote she gin it tea, the more—”
“My dear madam, I am in a hurry—
please tell me how many yards of cotton
you wove in 1850. 1 want to get through
and go on.”
“Well, well, vvho’d a thought you’d'a bin
so snappish ! Well, as I was say in,’Sail’s
[ child hit kept gitting wus, and old Miss
! Stringer, she kept a givin’ it the yet b tea ;
j till at iast the child hit looked like hit tcouJd

child was at its wust, old Daddy Sykes he
he cum alon, and he said if we’d git some
: night-shed betries, and stew them with a
I little scream and some hogs lard—now old
Daddy Sykes is mighty fine old matt, and
he gin the boys a heap of mighty good
counsel ’bout that case—boys, says he, I'll
tell you what you do : you go and ”
“Old lady,” said we, "do tell about your

suit go to grass. I’m ,;n a hurry !”
“Gracious bless your dear sou!! don’t
git aggravated. 1 wasjist tellin’ you how
it come I did’nt weave no cloth last year.”
“Oh, well, you did’nt weave any cloth
last year. Good ! we’ll go on the next

"Yes ! you see the child hit begun to

“Never mind the case; let’s hear about
the chickens if you please.”
“Bless you, honey, the owls destroyed
and about the best half that I did raise.—
Every blessed night they'd come and set
on the comb of house, and boo, lion, boo.
and one night in particklur, I remwmber,
l had just got up for the night-shed salve
to 'int the little gal with
“Well, well what was the value of what
you did raise 1
“They got so had—the owls did—that

We began to get very tired, and signi

“Then tell me now many dollars worth

“I’ll let you see for yourself,” said the
widow Stokes and taking a ear of corn out

chaits, and tallies; alighting on the old
woman's head and shoulders, fluttering a
gainst her sides, pecking at her hands, in
confusion altogether indescribable. The
old lady seemed delighted, thus to exhibit
her feathered ‘stock,’ and would occasion

Tiie Neclecxed son.— A certain farm
er, in England, had an only son. lo whom
he was greatly attached, and never could
think of chastizing him for his faults.—
When he arrived at the age of twelve
years, he bid adieu to his father's house,
and went with h hand of gipsies. For
nearly twenty years he was never heard
of. It appeared, however, that the old
man was under the necessity of taking a
journey a considerable way, with a latge
sum of money. He had to pass a wood,
and as he went on, a man rushed from it,
seized his horse, and demanded his mo
ney. The old man remonstrated with
him.—He would not hear, but again de
manded his money. Most reluctantly be
gave it up.
The robber, gazing at him, said, “Do
you know me 1”
“No,” said the old man.
"Well,” said the robber, “I am your
son!” and returning his money added,
“Had you corrected me when young, I
might have been a comfort to you ;
now 1 am a disgrace to you, and a peat to
j An Elopement.— Some astounding de
velopetneiits, rela ive to the recent disap
pearance of a young girl name Drown, tho
daughter of a highly respectable abolition
ist, have been made. It appeats the father
had expressed himself as indifferent as to
whether his danghter married a white man
ot negro. Sho took him at his word, and
a few weeks since eloped with a black
man, manied him, and in his company
went to the different dens of Ann streeG
in one of which she was discovered by au
officer, and carried to her father. She is
now in the lunatic asylum. The affair has
been hushed up here, on account of the
respectability of the parties.
We should think there is very little re
spectability involved in the matter.
Ruinous Effects of Rum. —A startling
incident,connected with the misery which
follows in the train of King Alcohol, says
the Potlsville(Va.) Press.occurred inßev,
Mr. Johnston's Second Methodist Church,
of that borough, on Sunday evoning last.
While the collection was being taken up,a
man whose personal appearance evidently
denoted a shatered constitution, and con
sequent misery and suffeting, threw into
the basket a small paper carefully rolled
up, which on subsequent examination was
found to contain a half dime, the remnant,
it seems, of a wasted patrimony; on the
paper was written, “This is the last of
