Itty Sunday Breeches. "It chanced to be our washing day, And all our clothes were drying; The storm came roaring through the lines, And set them all a flying; I saw the shirt and petticoats Go riding off like witches; And lost, ah ! bitterly I wept I lost my Sunday breeches! I 8a w them straddling through the air, Alas! too late to win tbem; I saw them chase the clouds es if The devil had been in them, They were my darlings and my bride. My boyhood's pride and riches Farewell, farewell, I faintly cried My breeches! O my breeches! That night I saw them in my dreams, How changed from what 1 knew tbem! The dews had steeped their faded threads, The winds had whistled through them. I saw the wide and ghastly rents Where demon claws had torn them A hole vas in their hinder parts, As if an imp had v orn them, I have had many happy years, And tailors kind and clever, But these young pantaloons have gone, Forever and forever! And not till fate has cut the last. Of all my eatthly stiches, This aching iieait shall cease to mourn My loved and long lost breeches!1' Hang up your Stockings! BY MAJOR JONES. Ever sense 1 had the good forlin to gel into Mary Stallins' meal bag, I've had a very great veneration for the good old practice of hangin up the stockins on Christmas times. When 1 was a boy 1 never used to miss hanging up my stockins, and I'll have to be a good deal older than 1 am before I forget with what hopeful morality I used to o to sleep on Christmas Eve, or with what eager expectation I used to wake in the mornin to count over the ginger-cakes and lasses candy which 1 was always sure to git from good old Santa Claus. Them was happy days, and I well remember the shade that cum over my life when my too pryin curiesity des" troyed the beautiful delusion when 1 fouud out that old Aunt Suckey was in cohoot with the Saint. After that 1 ne" ver hung up my stockins no more, and Christmas, tho" it brought egg nogs and roast-turkeys, lots of fun and poppers, never had the same joys for me the fact is, it was pretty much a blank in the Almanack, till that auspicious night, when 1 becum the happyest man that e ver swung in bag. As I have sed, sense then 1 have had an uncommon respect for the old custom, and as soon as my boy was old enuff lo know his stockins pretty well from his trou sers, I larned him to hang 'em up Bless his little hart, he hainf been talk in nor thinkin about nothin else but old Santa Claus for this last month, and I do believe his calculations would take in the contents of all the candy stores and toy-shops in Baltimore. And the way he toes the mark now is really releavin to his mother. He wouldn't cry a whim per if he was to fall down six pair of stairs, and as for playin with the fire, upsettin the chairs, fightin the nurse, or gettin his clothes dirty, he don't think of sich a thing He's gwine to hang up his stockins. But ther's more hanging up of stock ins in this world than goes by the name. Older people who laughs at the childrens innocent superstition, don't forget to hang up ther stockins, though they don't always go to bed with as quiet, trustin heart nor as clean hands and faces, and of course didn: always git ther stockins as well filled. The Politician hangs up his stockins for Buncomb, and waits to see 'em swell with popularity. . Ther's four or five pair of stockins hung up now for the next Presidency, sum bran new ones and sum that's been darn'd up for the occasion before;and ther'II be more old stockins hung up this winter at Washington than would hold all the officers of the go vernment for half a century to cum. . I'd just like to be old Uncle Sam ir.ftead ot old Santa Claus for a while, sumof'em would find empty stockins.I'll be bounds. The Lawyer and the Doctor hangs up ther stocking when they stick up ther shingles. Sometimes they're a long time gettin 'em full of clients and patients, but if they do succeed they're ve" ry apt to keep up the practice. The Merchant hangs up his stockins, over hit door, and sum times you'll gee 'em haogin in the winder and all- round the door. So if they don't always git fortin enuff in 'em, it aint beeuii- ihev don't have a fair showin in the world. TheLaefyslhey thang up ther hose (they don't never wear stockins now a days,) when they primp ther beautiful faces, and decorate ther lovely persons in all the colors of the rainbow to take the eyes of the bows Bless ther dear sweet souls, they're the ones that knows how to hang up ther st hose, and its monstrous few chaps that is smart enuff to keep out of 'em them that keeps out aint worth bagin. Editor hangs up ther stockins, and if any people deserve to have em well filled its :hem But, poor fellers, most of 'em is no strangers lo hope deferred. They know what it is to give ther lives to a labor of love, and are contented to see the stockins of others filled with good things of this world, though ther own swings empty in the chill winds of adversity. A editor mought as well hang himself as But I'm gwine to hangup my stock, ins ! I'm determined to see what luck ther is for me these Christmas times. I'm a little superstitious sense that time 1 got in the Christmas bag of eld Miss Stallinses back porch, an who knows but another windfall of forlin awaits me. 111 hang up my stockins this veryChrist mas and see if ther aint some clever Santa Clauses that will fill 'em chock full of subscribers. So take notice now, friends and well-wishes, that my best par of stockins (a bran new par what old Miss Stallins nit for me and gin me when I was at home,) is to be hung up next Christmas eve. I shall go to bed that night sober as a meetin house.nnd dream of more subcribers than would fill all the Abolition petitions that was ever sent to Congress from New England. Dear reader, do you wish me a mer ry Christmas and yourself a happy New Year Well if you do, just 'be my Sente Cleus, and help to fill my Christmas stockins, and every week you shall have a Continent full of good stories, jokes, poetry, news, &c., to interest and entertain you. Predictions for New Year. According to the wise heads and soothsayers of the present day, the year of out Lord '48 is to be an eventful one. We extract the following sagacious pre-dictions, which will doubtless be fulfilled:"Through the whole course of pres ent year whenever the moon wanes the night will grow dark On several occasions, during the year, the sun will rise before certain people discover it, and set before they have finished the days work . It is quire likely that when there is no business doing, many will be heard to complaim of hard times but it is equal ly certain that all who hang themselves will escape starvation. If bust res and hoops go out of fashion a church pew will hold more than three ladies. If dandies wear their beards, there will be less work for the barbers, and he who wears mostachios will have something to sneeze at. . There will be many e-clipscs of virtue, some visible, others invisible. IFhoscrever is in love will think his mistress a perfect anger, and will only find out the truth of his suspicion by gettin marriedMany delicate ladies, whom no one would suspect, will be kissed without telling their mas There will be more books published than will find purchasers, more rhymes writ ten than will find readers, and more bills made than will find payers. If the incumbent of a fat office should die, there will be a dozen feet ready to step into one pair of shoes. If any young lady should happen to blush, she will be apt to look red in the face, without the use of paint; if she dream of a young man three nights in succession, it will be a sign of something; if she dream of him four times, or have the toothache, it is ten to one she will be a long time in get. ting either of them out of her head Many people will drink more strong li quor than will be necessary to keep them sober, and take more medicine than will be requisite to the enjoyment of good health. Dinners and entertainments will be given to those who have enough at home, and the poor will re. ceive much advice gratis, legal and medical excepted. The public debts of the repudiating States will hardly be adjusted,and the same fate will very probably attend many private contracts in this latitude. He who marries this year will run a great risk, especially if he does it in a hurry. He who steals a match gives tattlers occasion to gossip, and will be apt to involve himself and bride in disagreeable relations. There will be a great noise all over thecoun try when it thunders, and a tremendous dust will be kicked up occasionally by coach-horses. Many young Ladies, who hope for it, but little expect itt will be married; and many who confi dently anticipate that glorious consu mation, will be doomed to wait another year. Finally, theie exists little doubt, this will be a "most wonderful" year surpassing in interest all that have pre ceeded , it. Politicians will ir.ake fools of themselves? pettifoggers will make fools of others, and many women with pretty faces will make fools of both. 1 he world will go round as usual, and come back to the place whence it set out as will many a man who engages in bus iness. There will be great cry and lit tie wool, both at the shearing of pigs and the meeting of Congress." A Thrilling Scene. Our late for eign journals record an incident which is one of the most thrilling we have ever read of. On a late occasion the Empe. ror of Russia, was reviewing his fleet when two sailors particularly excited his attention, both by the precision which they performedseveral difficult manoeuvres, and by the agility and daring which they displayed. . The Emperor was so much pleased that he immediately promoted one to be a captain; the other he appointed Lieutenant on the spot. The men, however, were Jews, and there is an ukase forbidding Jews to wear an epaulette. The Admiral of the fleet, who stood by the Emperor, knowing that ihey were Jews, stated the difficul. ty to his imperial Majestv. "Pshaw!' cried the Emperor, "that does not signify in the least they shall immediately embrace the Greek religion, of course." When this determination was communicated lo the two young men, sorrow and despair seized upon them at the thought of receiving honor and promotion on such inevitable terms. Knowing that their remonstrance or refusal would be in vain, they requested of the Em peror to show still more of their niana-u. vres, as he had not seen all they could do. This being granted, ihey ascended the topmast, and locked in each other's arms, threw themselves into the sea and disappeared forever. Saturday Post. Time to pass it.

The Mormons, it seems, are making themselves at home as fast as possible in Iheir new quarters out west, on the fine lands of the Potto wattomie purchase, on both aides oil the , upper Missouri, above Council Bluffs. They have plan ted immense fields of corn to the extent of some 30, 000 acres. They have built also a town, which they call Winter Quarters, containing already a population of 7,000 souls, and strongly picket" ed in. High Prices. We understand that Tobacco, laised by Mr Stovall, of North Carolina, was sold yesterday at West Hill warehouse, in this town, at 817 per cwt. Nor is this the only instance in which good prices have been paid for Tobacco in Petersburg recently. Several hogsheads have been sold remarkably well, and planters would be only consulting their own interests if they would give our market a trial, Rem publican. Remains of Gen.
