nY BULL Fnoc, ESQ.
One night., while I VOW * d
porarily in the villag VC1 ' I
quested by my fric d V o 0
hin and four other,' an ssit in hak
ing night higeu d dhp eup,f
various bright eyed beauties of the
town. I had blit.lately.%rrivcd %th
place, but my friends:bd$On.
for some time, and assured me that it
was the custin'of the young ladis tp.
roward their admirers witlicakes and
candies, and those articles being rath
er scarce at the time, (it was during
the war,) I at once consented to go.
So a little after dark, all foiti6ed with
tobacco and a,flask of th6 e'herowith
al, we sallied f4tth and proceeded
to a seminua.ry of young ladios in the
suburbs. Not .Icing 'provided with
istrutent,;, wo had but to resort to
" Vox et pretertm' ih," and M. who
undertook to lead set up,a mostimelo
dious squall, while the rest of us join
ed in the chorus. .As soon as we had
finished the song a goodly bundle flow
out of the window. I at.oice jumped
over the fence, to secure it, and had
just got my fiugers upot it, when I be
came aware of the proximity of a
good spoeimen of. the gelnus V'Iiis,
species, Bull, wvho ex.hibi'te6Ac -i os
tiesymptoins, that it entpeesa
ry to display my O ility by j ining
the fences. -I succeeded Ain Jetting
over all but my coat tail, wWeih the
infernal dog got hbld of, and held to
with genuine bill tenicity, keeping
ine suspended in a rather painful po
sition, while nty friends below, and the
girls above shouted with laughter at
my ridiculous appearance, anything
but ridiculous to me, however. Af
ter various frantic but vain struggles
on my part, to get loose, M. picked
up a stick and punched the dog with it
so hard, that the beast let me go and
selVed it,' ad then M, let go and the
anipulc left. I had kept hold of,the'
bundle all the time, so that When' I
landed on terra firma, it was all safo.
After this little episode', we all sang
another soing with great applause, and
received another bundle, Whi'h fell
outside the fence this time. so that no
trouble was undergolo to get' it. As
we started to sing a third' there was
sonic little comlitotion.in the acdely,
and dreading a row, n beca.iue ,
just about there. Bringing up. dout
a hundred yards below, we' divided the
spoils, took a horii, and proceeded else
where. Going into the .heart of the
village we stopped at a snallliouse,
and treated the inmates to.tw,o' series
of the howls,gruits and groans which
were considered to represent songs.
They thereupon fmnished us with two
boulquets oif flowers, growing out of to
bacco pouches, filled ivhth tobacco,
these we drew lots for aqd they didn't
fall to' me. Two more horns a .piece
were then served out, and on we went.
Biy the time we t'esehed another house
whieh we-intended to bore, we were
all pretty well how-came-.you-se, and
we agreed to try the q.peratic style.
This in our opinlihlponaisted in each

wvith favor, commenced fire .with a

The total number of great firea for
the year 1865 was one hndred and'
fifty-one, and the dsses resulting from
these firos were estifated at $17,528,

the current year, the number of fires
is given at two hundred and eighty
nine, and the aggregate of the proper

this year will excel.nll others in these
