Our neighbor of the Argus just before start inüf lor the Ceutenuial last week, read the Rei ister, atter taking in provisions for tli cruise, and went to bed. Then he dreamt h saw his graudmother. She told him tlier ought to be an injunctiou put upun the Regis Lef, etc. - Register, Oct. 18 We forgot to ask perniiasion of Bro Pone of the Aeguö, and hü oonseciueutly tukes a se riitus view of our heedless way of doing thiugs -Register, Oct. 18. Now, as "our ueighbor" left for the Centen nial on the 3Uth day of September, several day bofore the Register emptied it kettle af lus upou Harrimau's head, he couldn't have hac his "dreums" very much disturbed by anythiu the Register sid,- in f act he is n't at all likel to be over-worried by anything that jourua eau 3ay. He rather hkes to see the " sta combiuation troupe" threw Usolf, and it is en tirely unnecessary to ask his permission. H is in just the happy state of miud of the aft'ec tiouate husband who was found laughing whi] his wife whipped him, and whose explanator; remark was, "it pleases her and don't hurt in a bit." So, lay ou, dear fellows, make black guardB or asnes of yourselves ad libittim, au don't live in mortal fear of the inteipositiou o an "injimctiim."

The public will uo mistruat it uuleas you make a good ahowiug.
