It must not be given away, nor kept at all except in dwelling houses net con nected with any shop or place of amuse ment, in churches, in manufactories, and in actual transportation. Any person may be authorized to sell for th? above purposes, provided he does not use liqTOr as a b.verage, is au elec tor, is not interested in any shop, boat, or place of entertainment, can prove good moral character, and give $1,U00 securi ty sot to sell for any other purposes. He must sell only to persons over twen ty-one years old. whom he has reason to believe will use it for one of the above purposes. He must keep a list of his sales, which he must file, and swear to, in the county clerk's office, every month. This list is to be open for public exami nation. If he violates any of these regu lations, he forfeits all his stock of liquor, is fined from $50 to $250, and may be .imprisoned thirty days.

HOW TO B9BR0W. A certain editor, well known for his bonne fortune, threw his smiles upon a < "rat" of the Imperial Academy of Music j The "rat" experienced a natural anxiety to gnaw the purse-strings of her admirer, but could not exactly see her way. < Whilst thinking this matter over, a Bo hemian of her acquaintance came in. ?'Do you think," said the young ar tiste, "that V? will be willing to lend me three thousand francs V* "More than doubtful. But he might be induced to do it. Write as I shall dic tate." "Beloved?I expected some money this morning and have been disappoint- j ed ?" 4'That'8 a very old story," interrupted the rat "Go on. Bring me then, I beseech you. , three thousand francs, and come and dine i with me at the same time. I have a ; splendid pheasant." "And do you think," said Mademoiselle j Alphonsine, when the letter was gone, "that I shail get my money, or rather j V 's money, with that?" "With such a letter, my friend, you j will never get a sou, or I know nothing of the human heart. V ( "Then why did you make me write it?" | "Because it was essential that a first < note should precede the one I was about i to dictate to you." < "What ! write another?" "Only two words." " 'Dear friend?Consider my letter as , not written. At the very moment I had 1 dispatched it, the expected remittance , made its appearance; I am now richtssime. 1 But dont forget, I expect you to dinner ; j the pheasant is magnificent.' " ( The second letter was sent after the 1 first. < "Now," said the Bohemian, "this is , what will happen. V will pretend not to have received your pccond note, and will show himself more generous, in that he will believe you are not in want of money." It happened as the Bohemian had anti cipated. V offered the three thous and francs with the idea that they would not be accepted; but, to his infinite hor ror, they were pocketed at once. To complete his misfortune, thert was not even a pheasant to console him. The< Bohemian ate it the same evening with the assistance of Mademoiselle Alphon sine, in a cabinet of the Maison l>oree.

Ixrag afler the ceaseless over-rollinr tide of the pale faced Oke-moke mun had vanished away from their homes and their bunting grounds, the warlike tnbe of the Miamis. while their numerous camp-fires illumined the hills and valleys ol the West, when to battle along the war path, Mm-ge-ne-ke-aw, (the big man,) one of the gallant chieis of the na tion, felt his ire cxcited at the reputation which a member of his tribe, a half-breed, called Francois Godtroy, had obtained for courage and for his great personal strength. Mm-ge-ne-ke-aw claimed to be the bravest, as well as the fctrongest man of his people, and would endure no rival. He chafed like the wild boar when he heard the braves and red beauties extol the manly bearing of his competitor: and he resolved to test the courage and physical power of Frank in single com bat. lie gave no challenge to mortal combat with 44 your humble servant" at t!ic bottom, but meeting Frank ene day, he accosted him with? ?4 Are you a brave .nan?" 44 Yes," was the reply. 44 Then meet me here to-morrow morn ing at sun-rise, with your scalping knife in your right hand ; we will join our lefl hinds, and he who kills the other is the best and the bravest warrior of the Miamis " Frank, though a man of dauntless couiage and herculean strength, saw no good reason to test either in that way, but nothing but blood would satisfy the chief, and Frank replied, 441 will meet you." At the appointed hour the chief strode along the battle ground. lie relied not only on his personal strength, but on his great dexterity in the use of the scalping knife, which he had often tried on the pale laces at llarwer St. Clair's defeat, as, with the deep growl of a tiger, he ad vanced to anticipated victory, lie bran dished his knife, and called on his antag onist to sing his death song, ere his spirit was dismissed, by the great chief, to the disiant hunting grounds of the dead warriors of their race, who had fallen in battle, and gone to the Far West beyondahe great rivers. Frank saw there was no avoiding the deadly strife. To refuse, was to be branded as a coward and a squaw. The only alternative was victory or 6udden death; so he flourish)d bis keen blade, gavw a shrill whoop of defiance and ad vanced. They joined their left hands, and there they stood fac* to face, And und, like Fitz James and Roderic Dhu of old, - l<?ked to sun and sky and plain. A* wliat tl?*y ne'er might see again." They mustered all their strength for the deadly thrust,raisedthei**keen knivea iloft, but ere they fell, Frank, the grip of whose hand was like an iron vice, wrung Lhe left hand of Min-ge-ne-ke-wa wuh ;uch tremendous force as nearly crushed he bones together. The chief, with a >-ell of anguish, dropped his knife and :alled out, "You are a braver and a stronger warrior than I am; let us shake iands and be friends forever." The IxDrsTRiAL Scdools for girls, in NTew York, are six in number, and about eight hundred and fifty vagrant or needy young girls were in attendance during the year. The report says that 4' the ladies and visitors who have organized these schools, have gone around in the most needy quarters, and have selected the poorest children, or have met them begging in the streets They have offered the inducement of a dinner, the clothes which the child should earn, and a chance of learning sewing, or some trade, which should by and by support her." The Newsboys' Lodging House has been very successful. 'J here have been |},872 lodgers at the rooms during the year, and 408 different boys. The usual number of lodgers is from 25 to 40. These boys are much changed for the better. They come regularly to evening school, and to the informal religious meetings on Sunday evenings. They wear cleanjshirts and clothes ; gambling and drinking have been much reduced. Their language and behavior are much improved ; they are more saving indus trious and cleanly. During the year ending February, 1855, the society sent into country children, 48 men and IV women. Of the children, about 422 were girls, and 576 boys. The number provided with places in the city is 53 ; 18 boys and 35 girls. The report adds: The number of children clothed, either in part or whole by the society up to February 22d, was between three and four thousand. , The amoun t of good done by this So ciety cannot be over-estimated, 'they begin the work of reform at the fountain head. They both relieve distress and pre vent crime. Even in point of economy, the operations of the association ment earnest support. Mr. Brace shows, in his argument on this subject, that whilo "each little begging girl in an industrial school costs only $8 ?#r $10 per annum to the supporters of the institution, 44 a child cannot be arrested, held in the Tombs, tried, and afterwards confined in the house of refuge for a year, at a less expense thau $175 or $200 per annum." Thus it appears that prevention is not only better, but cheaper than punish ment. Echo?The shadow of a sound?a voice without a mouth and words without a tongue.
