The Ups mid Downs ol Politicians.
An amusing and instructive volume might bo
! written upon the ups and downs of politicians.
Martin Van Duron, and Captain John Tyler,
tho lucky, might be very properly placed at the
head of tho interesting catalogue of remarkable
cases Tho advent of the present administra
tion, also, turns up some very interesting speci
mens. We find ex-members of the House and
ex-members of the Senato of the United States
among the applicants for, and appointments to,
the little subordinate offices ofthe federal gov
ernment. Thus, we find Daniel Sturgeon, for
merly a United Stales Senator of twelve years
standing, advanced backwards to the quiet post
of Treasurer of the mint at Philadelphia; and
B. B. French, formerly Clerk of tho House of
Representatives at Washington, at 3,000 a }*ear,
promoted recently to a clerkship for signing
land patents, ut fifteen hundred dollars per nu
But perhaps the most remarkable case of the
recent curious applications for office, and which
is still pending on the docket of the Postmaster
General for settlement, is the application of Hon.
Wm. J. Brown, of Indiana, for the post of a
travelling mail agent in the West- Mr. Brown,
some four years ago, was member of Congress,
and a rather prominent one in his way, and
came within one vote of being elected Speaker
of the House of Representatives. But at that
point there was sprung upon the House a charge
of collusion against Mr. Brown, with the free
soilers. And “that’s the way his fall rose.’’—
There was a recoil; and Mr. Brown from that
Congress retired to private life, or the next
thing to it—tho editing of a political paper in In
Now we find him a candidate for the modest
post of a mail agent. Rumor, too, has it that
Senators Bright and Pettit are, pro or con , hav
ing quite a scuffle over Mr. Brown’s application.
Let Mr. Brown strike higher.
“It will never do to give it up so,Mr. Brown!
It v ill never do to give it up so.”
Frederick the Great.
Frederick the Great one day rang liis bell,
and the summons being unanswered he opened
the door of his apartment and beheld his page
reclining in an arm chair, asleep. The King
was about to awaken the youth, when he per
ceived the corner of a note protruding from his
pocket. His Majesty’s curiosity was excited ;
he softly drew the letter from the pocket of the
page, and read it. It was from the young man’s
mother, acknowledging the receipt of a portion
of his salary, sent to relieve her wants, and
expressing a hope that Heaven would reward
The King having read the letter, returned to
his apartment, and in another moment softly
crept out again, with a rouleau of ducats in
his hand, and slipt it, together with the letter,
into the pocket of the page. Then having once
more returned to his apartment and closed the
door, he rang the bell with sufficient violence
to rouse the young page from his slumber, and
he hurried to attend the King.
“Have you been sleeping ?” said Frederick,
; ‘I have rung the bell twice/’
The page endeavored to excuse himself, and
in his embarrassment, thrusting his hand into
his pocket, he felt the rouleau. He drew it out,
turned pale, and gazed on the King without be
ing able to utter a single word.
“What have you got there?’’ said Fred
“Ah, sire!” exclaimed the young man, throw
ing himself on his knees, “some enemy is seek
ing my ruin. 1 assure your Majesty I know
nothing of this money, or by what means it came
into my pocket.’’
“No matter, my good lad,’’said the King, in
a tone of kindness, “Heaven often sends us good
luck in our sleep. Forward the sum to your
mother; give her my regards, and tell her that
I will provide for her as well as for you/’
A Rebuff. —A worthy man in this great me
tropolis, recently visited a medium to witness
the wonders of spiritual rappings. He had
lived twelve years with a notorious shrew, who
at last died, soon after which he married a young
woman of comely person and pleasant disposi
tion. On inquiring it any spirits were present,
he was answered by raps in the affirmative.
“Who ?’’ “The spirit of Melinda, your deceas
ed wife/’ “Ah !” exclaimed be, “are you satis
fied with your condition? Are you happy?”
“Perfectly so,”replied the spirit. “So am I!”
gruffly exclaimed the ungallant inquirer, as he
turned upon his heel and walked off*.— Boston
Late in the Game. —Talleyrand was enjoying
his rubber, when the conversation turned on the
recent marriage of an elderly lady ol respec
table rank. “How could Madamo de S
make such a match? A person of her rank to
marry a valet de chambre” “Ah !” replied Tal
leyrand, “it was late in the game ; at nine we
don’t count honors.”
A Wise Steward. —The late Amos Lawrence
of Poston, it is said, gave away during his life
more than five hundred thousand dollars. On
his pocketbook was inscribed, “What shall it
profit a man if ho gain the whole world and lose
his own soul.”
As Father Morris was walking through a pa
rish famous for its profanity, he was stopped by
a whole flock of the youthful reprobates of the
place, “Father Morris! Father Morris! the
devil's dead.” “Is he ?” said the old man be
nignly layiug his hand on the head of the near
est urchin, “You poor fatherless children!’’
