A Rich Joke. A M.MIIT Mistake.
A staid, mi liile ag".i gentleman, tins lather
of a large family of children, got himself
'"to a laughable scrape a few days since.
" failed at the Post (Mice and received a.
letter directed to Ins name, which on open- 1
ing he found somew hat, difficult to read. His
wife and daughter being excellent hands at
deciphering illegible scrolls, he took the let-!
ter to hi home in the flrove, and handed it
to his wife to read. His astouishuient may!
be imagined w hen she read without much
difficulty, a letter from l-'u'ton, Oswego Co.
informing him that he " had ju-t b. come the
father of a tine child, weighing nine pounds1
without its clothes ; that its fond mother
was better than could be expected," and -earnestly
requested him to visit l is loving
wife on the coming Saturday; and bring
with him a few yards of flannel, and a nil 111-1
ber of other " baby things." The gentle-,
man was thunderstruck, and as- soon as he!
recovered from his astonishment, protested ,
that th" letter w a intended tor some one
eUe. His wife 1 mieavoi ed to eountcrfiit
liyst. ric, but her f fToits ended in a tit of
laughter, and his grown up daughter was
obliged logo to her room to hide her blushes.
A dry old fellow called one day on a
member of Congress elect ; the family were

the old man was hardly iu a plight to be
invited to the table. The following cuiver
satioti took place : " How do you do Mr
T What is the news?" The old man
said : Nothing much, but one of my neigh
bor gave his child a queer name' ' What
was it H' ' Come and eat.' The name sound
ed so peculiar that it was repealed ' What,

old man, ' I don't care if 1 do, aud drew up

thereby subjecting the community to much
inconvenience, and impairing the utility of

opinion of this meeting that it was the wish
and intention of the (ieniiul Assembly in
