Of this, the case of Bishop Ash bury affords a memorable example : "In Virginia there lived a certain widow, "fat, fair and forty," who thought hersel every way qualified to make an old man happy But as the Bishop did not seem to see it, she wrote to him a long letter staling her views, and ended with the off.-.r of her hand, heart and fortune The answer was to the purpose It contained only these words :" "Good woman, let me alone." ^^^^ F. ASHBUEV. HOBBID.—The hydrophobia is raging to a fearful extent in Madison Liogs, wild, gaunt, bony, vicious, ugly looking, wander about the streets, with blood-shot eyes and red, lolling tongues hanging from their months. They bite each other—they bite cewa and horses— they bite men, women and children, and have become so dangerous that it is all a man's life is worth to walk the streets. Policemen dare uot approach near enough to shoot them, and poison is the only thing used to destroy them. Fifty dead dogs were carrfed off and buried in one day. The cure used by persons bitten, is to have a physician Immediately cut out the part wounded. as yon wnnld cut « rotten spot from an apple * PIKE'S PEAK.—The travel to Pike's Peak, through St. Joseph, continues nndiminUhed.

PONS.—It is remarkable that Sidney Smith, the pivot of wh ose excellent jokes was so of ten a pun, should have spoken ill of this kind of wit in his Lectures on Mental Philosophy. On the contrary, Hood, the most prolific and the most ingenious of punsters, def-nded his je« de mots against all antagonists. Only dull people, he insinuates, are opposed to puns — "His not wonderful," he says, "that people dislike (wo tenset who with difficulty understand one;'' a sharp saying and logically as well as wittily gut Undoubtedly bad pnnj are a bore. So is bad grammar; but that proves nothing against the genuine thing. All attempts at wit by dunces are offensive, whatever may be the kind attempted. Bunglers bring all manner of fine arts into disrepute; and punsters who have no wit—who are mere word-manglers—are responsible for all the odium which attaches to puns. It is something to know that puns have never gone out of fashion, and that the art has been greatly improved by modem scholars. Cicero made puns that Swift would 1 have been ashamed of. The pans of great authors are, most of them, clumsy enough; while PnneK't puns are often perfect. Jerrold's best jokes were based on puns. So were LamVs, and Foote's, and Quinn's Though Johnson professed to bate puns, bis best retort had a pun patent at the bottoms it. li : J8 ra|herjate, in the.cday to expect much originality in anything; yet' there are many clever pang to be made yet. THIS NBW MABOHIO! HAH.—We have—per special dispensation—been permitted to take a- hasty inside look at the new Masonic Hall now fitting np in the building recently erected by Mr. H.

My pecuniary interest in tbe mortgage is only nominal,received by me at par as a creditor of the company.

Too have not beeu pleased to asiign any reason for making this request, and being my- eelf ignorant of tbe existence of auy, I shall decline to comply with it. in doing so however, I deem U proper in justice to myself to take this, tbe first opportunity I have had, to state and explain my position in this natter, which I shall briefly now do. My very short and as it turned out in a great measure to be, nominal connection with lie La Crosse Co., commenced with the consolidation with that Co , of the Milwaukee & Watertown R B. of which I bad been a Director for four years preceding At the tirnu this occurred I had a claim for a targe amount on. the laiter Co , id connection "with seUiqgita securities and'purchasing iron i;n New York, and for other important special services rendered, time spent, and respouBlbiltittS incurred taring a period of four years, of which th» [(B'Crosse Co^Were fully aware. >' The La Crosse Oo. having by the terms of the articles of consolidation agreed to pay All th» ialilities of the Watertown Co., thus beeamo table-to me for my claim and although a just ind valid claim, I never made any .demand, on. hri La Crosse Co. for it, and in trnth never ia The La Crosse Company goon afterwards applied to oar I^gtslatnre then in session to have he North West La'nd Grant conferred on thnn, audJmoBt folly concurring with the general gen- imentliere, thai this.waa the best disposition that could iwjibade of the Grant, 1 spent some time tndeavorlng by -honorable means to induce the Legislature so to confer it.
