DEACON THROPE'S PIGEONS.

Several years ago, when the masts ana crop* in sane of 'the \\ e*tern States were about to be destroyed by the large number of wild pigeons that came about, beacon Thrope and several of hie friends were sitting outside the log meeting-house, one Sunday morning, waiting for the minister to arrive, and, as a matter of course, talking about the prospect of having Nothing to feed on" through the coming winter. . -It's orful V said one of the company. "I never see the pigeons so thick afore. My Bill and Ben went down to the roost last night, and killed a bag-full with dubs. I think they'll take all my com." "Oh, yes, it's orful V replied the others. "That's nothing to what me and my Felix Joshua did, day before yesterday," said the i deacon. "You know my bottom field there ? Well, they come in it, so* thick you couldn' see the ground. I went down* to scare 'em out, and peradventure, they rii up like % cloud, you couldn't see the sky for 'em. 1 hollered and slapped my hands, and tore around till 1 wa* plum worried out, but it did no good. They just swarmed around over my head; and as fist as I went to one side of the Held they begun to pour down in t'other. Felix Joshua had jest got up to the crib with a load of com, for he was a gatherin' the ridge field, and 1 went to whax he was and told him to go to the house and get his shot-gun and mv shot-gun, j and see if we couldn't drive them 'ar pigeons out'n the Iwttom field. So he goes and gets his shot-gun and my shot-gun and we goes down. He slipt along on one side of the field and I slipt along on t'other, till we got about middle ways, and then I gin a holler, and up they flew like a whirlagust. I blazed away in the* thickest of 'em, and Felix Joshua blazed away in the thickest of 'em, and what do you thinli ? They were all gone in a secoud. Then me and Felix Joshua, we ckm over the fence, and says he to me, ••Father, this beau all creation r Says Ito him, "Go fetch the steers and wagon," and upon my word and honor, we picked up ten bushtU !" The good brothers stared wildly round them, and would probably have accused their deacon of lying had they not been interrupted by the arrival of the preacher, and the announcement that ••meetin' was a-goin' to begin." After the services were over, little groups of the faithful might have been seen here and there, engaged in earnest conversation. Their subject » as an exciting one, as you might hay« inferred from the length of thei faces and the earnestness oi their gestures. If you had listened to their conversation you might have heard something about as- follows : "Did you hear what Brother Thrope said 'bout him and Felix Joshua killin' ten bushels of pigeons at one shot ?" "Yes, it's orful, aint it?" "It's a lie, as sure as shootin'. I don't know what's got into Brother Thrope-" "Whatil be done about it ? It mustn't go so— it'll ruin the name of the church." ••We'd better fetch it up next meetin', and make him take it back, or church him." And so it would go on. Of course the good deacon heard a whisper of it, which gave him no little uneasiness. However, he had been into several scrapes before, and had come out clear, and he doubted not he should meet with the same good luck on this occasion. Until the meeting day arrived the entire settlement was in an uproar. Nothing was talked of but Deacon Thrope's ten bushels of pigeons. The good brothers said it was too bad to have the church disgraced by a deacon who would tell such unreasonable tales,- while the- pious old sister* wiped their spectacles, sighed, and said "It is hard telling the power which the erfl one exerteth." At last the exciting day arrived. The preacher stated that the church was ready for the transaction of business ; whereupon, Brother Fingle arose and said t "Brother Deacon Thrope says him and his Felix Joshua killed ten bushels 'of pigeons at one shot. The church don't believe it, and would love to hear what the brother has to say for himself With much solemnity the Deacon arose, and after casting a serious look over the congregation, and elevating his eyes to the rafters a few times, spoke as follows : "My brelhering, there is a sad mistake out — I didn't say we killed ten bushels of pigeons at one shot, but — " "What did you say, then?" interrupted one of the brothers, who was present when the Deacon first told about his pinions. "Didn't you say you and your Felix Joshua both blazed away ?"" "Yes." "Didn't you say you both ckm over the fence?" * ' " "Yes, peradventure." "Didn t you say that Felix Joshua said, 'Fa{ ther, this beat* all creation ?" "I did, brother." "Didn't you say Felix Joshua fetched the steer* and wagon, and you picked up ten bushels of pigeons ?" • "There is the mistake, my brother," replied the deacon, again raising his eye* towaru the rafters. "I didn't *ay wepicked up ten bushels of pigeons. Brother Fingle is mistaken; I said — "Yes, I know what you saidT interrupted several; "you did aay it, and we can prove it easy enough . You can't come that game ovei us, eld host-fiy." •Order, brethreng," said the minister; "let'i hear Brother Thrope'* story, and then you can make any remarks you wish." "Weil, as I was savin'," resumed the deacon, "I didn't say we picked up ten bushels of pipeon* — Brother Fingle is mistaken — I said we picked up ten bushels of corn that the pigeons tad shattered oft" "Amen!" went up from the congregation, a:id a rush was made at I teuton Thrope to shake him by the hand. It is needless to say h« was restored to full fellowship and confidence

THE DISCOVERY OP THE AGE.

The new patent quadrant, the invention of Thomas Hedpecock, B. N., is just now absorbing the attention of nautical and scientific men. It is claimed that this euKous instrument JP ve * the ship's true psatkm with or without the aid of the im, moolTar stars; mark. Utrtude and longitude at any time of night or day, by observation upon a lamp or any other liable object measure horizontal angle, with the most remarkable facility and accuracy; Knten entirely unnecessary the use of the old quadrant the chronometer, the table. of logantima, and nautical almanacs, in. the navigation of ships; that, in fine, ft has all the utility both in navigation and practical astronomy, of all the m gtruments now in use for that purpose, combined with a simplicity and certainty heretofore unknown. These are only a few of the advantages claimed for this remarkable instrument*, which has recently been tested by an officer of skill and experience, Cant. Henry French, of our own naw. The official note of that gentleman will give'the best idea of the practical workings of the new instrument : Kavt Yakd, Bobtox, Mass*, ? March 10, 1857. S During the month of January last, I made a journey to Albany, returning to Boston by way of New York and Springfield, expressly for the purpose of verifying the results claimed to be obtained by observations with Hedgecock's patent quadrant. Before leaving Boston my observations #ere taken with the sun; arriving at night at Albany, the moon was observed; at Xew York, having neither sun nor moon, I observed upon a gaslamp at the Astor House; at Springfield, again used the sun. Before leaving Boston, the two images of the sun were brought in contact with parallel adjustment; at Albany, and at each of the other places, the images of the sun, moon and gas lamp were found verymuch separated, and when brought in parallel contact, the distance indicated dv the instrument gave the difference of latitude and longitude between each place with a remarkable degree of exactness. H. Fkexch, Commander U. S. Navy. If these facts be true as stated, there has been no discovery of equal importance since the mariner's compass. Xosel Decision". — John S. Spragrue has escaped punishment, at Portland, Maine, by being proved more guilty than he was charged with in the indictment He was tried by the Supreme Court for bigamy, recent!}-, and the fact of his havir._: had two wives was most clearly establish*}, when his counsel introduced evidence to pr> ■< :aat he already had one wife when marrit-d to the other two, in fact that he had three «i\ a at once, and as the indictment was based upun the assumption that the second marriage km the liret ana legal marriage, it was contended that as to the last marriages, considered by themselves, no bigamy was committed, because Sprague was the legal husband of neither. The judge sustained this position. The Boston Post wants to know why credit should not be given to physicians in notices of death, as well as to clergymen in notices of marriage? A newspaper obituary announcement should read — "Died at the hands of Dr. Saddlebags, John Doe, aged so and so." The New York Mirror says the omnibus proprietors have adopted the classic motto from Ca-sar, "Jamfortt in omnibus."
