Another reminine French Swindler.
French women have ever been noted and
celebrated as being the most a Iroit swindlers
in creation, especially when their inclinations
or neeessities drive them to other than hon.
est courses to obtain a livelihood. Original
ity and novelty appear to charnetesize all
their efforts, and success seems naturally to
follow every attempt, for nine times out of
ten we rend that the operators got well off
We have been drawn into these remarks by
reading the following account, and venture
to say that no other than a French woman
could or would plan and carry out so bold a
As the story run, a fashionable looking
lady recently drove up in a handsome private
carriage to a well known lunatic asylum,
situated a few miles from Paris, and reques
ted to see the proprietor. Her wish being
acceded to, she informed the doctor that she
..desired to place her husband under his care,
to see if a cruel mania under which he la
bored, that he had lost a large quantity of
jewels, could not be removed. After some
hesitation, the doctor consented, and the lady,
on receiving his assurance, drove directly to
the first jeweler's in Paris and selected jew
els to the value of several hundred pounds.
Requesting a clerk to go with her, in her
carriage, to procure the money for the goods
she had tak-en, she drove with him to the
insane asylum, and arriving there, he was
shown into a room. The lady then sought
the. doctor, told him of the arrival of her
husband. and getting into her carr'a;;e, again
drove rapidly away. The poor clerk, after
waiting and waiting, grew impatient, and
violently rang the bell. The doctor made
his appearance, and the clerk commencing
eagerly to inquire after the lady and his
jewels, was forced into a straight jacket, the
malady complained of as the doctor imagined
making its appearance. He was confined
for several days before the lady's ruse was
discovered. She and the jewels are as yet

DISTRESSING OCCURRENCE.-We learn that
on Tuesday evening last, Mr. John Blakeney
of this District, met with an accident which
resulted in his death instantly. The parti
culars so far as we have been able to gather
them, are these: On the evening mentioned
be took his double-barrel gun, and walked
out to where his hands were at work,.in his
field, and after giving some directions, walked
to a small distance from them, when the re
port of his gun attracted their attention: on
looking round lie was seen to fall in one di
rection, and his gun in another. Upon ex
amination, it was found that both barrels of
his gun had been discharged, both loads ta
king effect, one in his mouth and the other
near by passing directly through and tearing
off the back of his head.
Between him and his gun lay a log, and
from the marks of both harmmers on the
off side, it is supposed that he either set the
butt of the gun upon the log, froni which it
slipped, or that he attempted to set it against
the log and struck the hammers, which dis
char'red both barrels. Mr. Blakeney was a
highly respectable citizen-had been married
about two years, and leaves a wife and child
and a large circle .of relations and friends to
mourn his untimely and sad fate.-Cheraw

Exta&onorsAar BamE.-On the evening
of the 14th instant, the wife of Mr. Henry
Bowvie, who resides a few miles wvest of this
village, gave birth to three flne, fat, bonncing
babes-two boys and a girl-and at the latest
accounts, were all doing well. The three
together, as we are informed, weighed twenty
