Wc learn that a party of young ladies and
gentlemen, returning from a pic nic OB Saturday
evening, came near having a very carious acci?
dent, from the upsetting of their wagon on the
hill near Fisher's Pond: As it happened to be
a soft ?pot. the extent of the damage was the
rather budden extraction of a tooth or two,
-light bruises and scratches, and a general dis
.oention of hoop skirts: Drivers should be extra
?areful, when they have such valuable loads on

Yankee Tr ea to ?nt of Prisoners.
Tba honest *ff>d excellent old chronicler, Sir
John Froissart, in hts account of the battle
of Otterburn, fought in 1388, between the
English and Scottish Earls, Percy and Doug?
lass, dwells, in eloquent terms, upon tho mag
nanftnity and humanity displayed by both
parties towards their prisoners and the !
wounded after the action, which, hs says, wan ]
perhaps, "the hardest and most obstinate j
battle that was ever fought." "For," be ou- '
serves, "tbs English and the Scotch are excel
lent men-at-atms, and whenever they meet ir
battle do not spare, each other; nor is there any
check to their courage aa long as their weapon,
endure. They ransom their prisoners at once,
and in such courteous manner, that, on theil
departure, they return them-their thanks. Ye;
when they are in battle, it is no boy's play be
tween them." Thus it waa after the battle o:
Otterburn-the Scots chased the English fi v.
miles, killing and taking prisoners all the>
could overtake; but when once they had
yielded themselves prisoners*1-rescued, "or no
rescu-d-they trusted to their word-told then
to^isarm themselves, and treated them aa ii
they had been brothers, instead of enemies
Iiis English commentator observes, that "the\
received considerable Euma for' the rsnsom ot
their prisoners, although in this point, they be
have generously-prensifff no tuan beyond ki*
means. As Scetch and Pnglish they laughed at
leach other, fought with each other, and bated
each other; but when one became thc pu
sonar of the other, all tho national canses o :
the quarrel were forgotten-the yielding of th.
.prisoner, made his captor Ins protector, not hi
I tyrant. When opposition censed,enmity wa?
