The New table of currency.
--The N. O. Delta
, of Wednesday last, has the following humorous article under its local head:
The old table of school boy days, "ten mills make one cent: ten cents one dime; ten dimes one dollar," is played out. A dime or a dollar, in hard spelter, is a sight good for diseased optice, and a five minutes survey of ten dollars in specie would cure the most hopeless case of Asiatic cholera, But we have a new table of currency, and it is published here free of charge, for the benefit of those who choose to cut it out and paste it up for reference:
10 omnibus tickets make half a dollar.
5 Schelke's beer tickets make a man drunk — if invested in "lager"
10 Krost's beer tickets make one city shinplaster.
1 handful of shinplasters (with the pictures worn off) make a man cuss.
10 half dollars make a fool of a poor man.
25 beer tickets (Schelke's or Krost's) make half a cinq
40 beer tickets, 10 omnibus tickets, 1 handful of shinplasters and nary half dollar, make an honest man steal.
If they don't, we should like to know what will.
