A Dian Wio will Never Shave Again.
A. worthy citizen of Evanaville,
Md., undertook to ttim his beard at
short time since, and by a slip of the
sci.tors bpoiled the out. He trnimed
a lttle n,o-e, and still mire, but it
would look lapided ; so lae went to
the barber and got ehaved for the firet

busy, ated the business detained him
in his office until a late hour of the
ijight, and when he went home he
found that his f.niily had retired.
This was not tan uusual ocourrei.ce,
so lie bilently entered by means of a
pass key, sought his new room, and
undressed without lighting the gas.
He had hardly got into bed when his
wife astonished him by uttering a
loud and prolonged scream. le was
very much alarmed for her, and fear

The People In Advance of the Politilans.
It is but natural that the profised
politician should be slow and cautious
in changing his poition as to ques
tious of party and policy. The dash.
ing politiciun, who loves to be sensa.
tional, and aspires to notoriety, often
changites from no higher motive thTan to
exhibit a certain flaehy talent, and to
attract attention to novelties of opin
ion and action. The ardent egotist
may do the same thing from a mere
restlessness at following prudent,
piodding leaders in a beaten track,
and prefeis to have a following of biia
own, if it be but a curporal's guard,
to ei1,g lost sight of in the eowd.

Daring Leap of a Thief from a fast TraIn
into a-Trestle on the Savannab sad
* On Wednesday a young lawyer of
this city heard that a, debtor had
left the city for Charleston without
bhviag paid a number of large bills
among the number a one hundred dol
lar lawyer roe. The fugitive, lie also
understood, took a carriage in this
city and drove .to Monteith, about
four miles from town on the Ceutrul
Aecompanied by Constable Louis
Eudro, he immediately started in
pursuit, and watobed the different
Btationa near this city to see whether
the fugitive would come aboard or
leave the train. But no one was seon
answering the description of the miss
ing man. However, they thought
that it were possiblo for the offender
to have gone on a preceding tnain, and
therefore it was determinod to follow
bim to ;harleston.
After reaehiug the South Carolina
side of the river the pursuers resolved
to go forward into a sinoking car, and
ror the curiosity of the thing, perhaps
lo see if any person were abroad
whom they kne*.
On reaching the smoking oar, where
all but one were colored people, our
young lawyer aud his constable friend
were suprised to see the white man
leave the oar quickly by the other
door, and to leap from the plitforim
through a trestle bridge, the train go.
ing at the rate of nearly twenty miles
an hour. Below the trestle there is
an extensive swamp,' and it was not
iteortainied whether the man struok
tho trestle or sunk in the swanup.
To make the matter all the,, more
surprising the Constuble was positive
that the individaal was not the 1nan
be was after, and he was therefore
unable to account for the sudden and
taring leap. However, it was deci.
ied to search the baggage of the miss.
ing inan, but nothing was found to
identify it as the property of the per
ion of whom they were in pursuit.
Yesterday morning the lawyer and
sonatable'Lad returned to the cit,y
without having succeeded in their trip
and almost worse than confounded at
the poiformance of the unknown man
who had leaped in such a desperate
manner from the traiu. Evidently the
idividual know the constable, and
fancied that he was being pursued,
and was about to be arrested. If such
wvere not his motive for the rash act
the man was crazy.
The constable, however, determined
to clear away the mystery, and be
fore noon yesterday learned that two
Spaniards had buen robbed of b,.
tween three and four hundred dollars
in greenbacks of various denouina.
lie also learned that the party who
committed the robbery was at one
time in the employ of a certain firm
now doing business on Byran-itreet,
West of the Plariters' Hotel, and that
the two Spainiads had permitted the
offender to sleep in their room, with
the above result.
Up to last unight no one could inform
us whether the fugitive escaped from
the trestle witho6t injury, or whether
he completely buried himself in the
mud by the force of the leap from the

Horace Greeley said :
Mr. Chairman and Genlemen :-I

the world certainly stands in great
need. At le at the laws need doctoring,
and some of the law makers too, as you
all know. This appointment is a recent

no pay connected with it, but there is
honor. And it is well to honor those
who honor scholarehip. At Amherst's
suggestion, then, I ball try and doo

The Enquirer wants to know the
strength of Mr. Greeley among Re
piblicans. we quote from the Utica
(N. Y.) Observer :
"Tho Republican feeling In favor of
Greeley is not stronger, but it is
more freeley expressed, in the coun
try than in the city. From a hundrod
sources we have learned during the
patst three weeks that in the villiages
and fAroing districts of oentral New
York scores of men who have been
steady supporters of the Republican
Adiministration heretofore-men who
took no interest in the Liberal move
ment when it was inaugurated-are
how open in their advocacy of Greo
ley. These citizens could not by any
stretch of the imagination be convert
ed into "office-seekers" or "sore
heads." They are the thoughtful,
hard working class, with nio other
ambition than to contribute their
share towards sustaining and securing
a gool government."
