Married, on Monday morning, Mr. Charles Po
to MissChu Lin, both of the Chinese Empire.
The above union was consummated at the
time above stated, under difficulties. Chu
Lin, one of the "high contracting parties,"
wss claimed as property by one Pong Ah Pan,
and valued at $250 in cash. Charles Po, the
other "party of the firit part," became enam
ored of the fair Celestial, who reoiprooated,
and the two resolved te be made one. With
the assistance of some Melllcans an attempt
was made to effeot an elopement on Sunday
evening last. Negotiations between the
friends of the rival houses of Po and Pan were
interrupted by a row between the prinoipals.
Several shots were exchanged, and Po took
water, Pan following him up with "hotyaris."
Fortunately no one was Injured, though one
shot whistled in olose proximity to the head of
a Mellloan Mandarin, "Ah Tomm," who was
waiting with a carriage to convey the "lov
yers" to a Magistrate. On the following
morning Fong Ah Pan was examined In
Justice Court and diaoharged, it appearing
that he had acted in self-defense. Charles Po,
who it appears was the aggressor, was then
examined, but during the interval he had
married the only witness against him, who
(like a true and faithful wife) refused to tes
tify against her "liege lord." Mr. Po, by this
adroit management, has saved himself a term
or confinement, and shown a knowledge of

distance of some six or eight miles from Bar
ber's Point, a native boy by the name of
Kameoeone, a deserter from the whale-ship
Franklin, which left this port the preceding
day. The boy, about eight o'olock on Thurs
day evening, jumped overboard, and struck
out for the land tben about twenty miles
distant. He swam ell night, and at daylight
was within half a mile of the shore. Here,
however, he was opposed by a strong current;
and, after buffeting the waves for a while in
e vain endeavor to reaoh the beaob, he dis
covered a sail In the distance, several miles to
the leeward. He aocoraWly changed bis
oonrse for the vessel, and, at nine o'olock on
Friday morning, was standing upon her deck,
apparently but little the worse for bis fourteen

Tbi Errior or Manlt Spostb. The mar
vellous and still juvenile vitality of Lord
raimeraton nas long been matter or surprise.
But it was his pride and pleasure as a youth
to be the best rower, jumper and runner; to be
first in the sports ef the field, as he has since
been first in the senate; and to this day his
horse and gun are Invariably resorted to in his
hours of relaxation. AS for Lord Brougham,
legends of his enormous powers of labor and
triumphs over the frail pAyo,u of humanity
have gathered round him like a Hercules; and
with reference to him and others of his dais,
tne observation or a publio writer is, doubtless.
in a great measure true, that "the greatness of
great men is quite as much a bodily aflair as a
mental one."

Tbe following inoldent, eld to be well attested,
and taken from a French work entitled L'HU
toiri det Chint CeUbret," shows that awell ed
noated dog, under exciting oiroumatsnces, ean
not only reason and act with wonderiul de
cision and presenoeof mind, but can also man
ifest a feeling of revenge, whioh is not necessa
rily his natural oharacter, but whioh ean
hardly be snrpassed ia intensity byaChristian
warrior. "Mustapba," a strong and aotive
greyhound, belonged to a captain of artillery,
raised from its birth in the midst of camps,
always aooompanied its master, and exhibited
no alarm in the midst of battle. In the hot
test engagements It remained near the cannon,
and oarried the match in its mouth. At the
memorable battle of Fontenoy, the master of
Muatapha received a mortal wound. At the
moment when about to fire upon the enemy,
he and several of hie corps were struck to the
earth by a discharge of artillery. Seeing his
master extended lifeless and bleeding, the dog
became desperate, and howled plteously.
Just at that time a body of French soldiers
were advanoing to gain possession of the piece,
which was aimed at them from the top of a
small rising ground. As if with a view to re
venge his master's death, Murtapha seized1 the
lighted match with hit jrates and set fire to the
cannon, loaded uith cate-thotl Seventy men
fell on the spot, and the remainder took to
flight After this bold stroke, the dog lay
down sadly, near tbe dead body of his master,
licked his wounds, and remained there twenty
two hours without sastenanoe. He was at
length with difficulty removed by the comrades
ef tbe deoeased. This gallant creyhonnd was
carried to London and presented to George II,
who had him taken oare of as a brave and
faithful public servant
A Vsbt Fobmibabli Isisb "Ghost," A
"ghost" has been in the habit of haunting the
neighborhood of Panmure, near Dundee, in
various disguises. He carries fire-arms, and
on being accosted presents a pistol to the per
son addressing him. One morning, at dawn,
he was perambulating about in white, and on
one oooasion he was pursued by two men, but
vanished out of their sight. The Dundee
Cbiirier says he walks on springs, whioh ena
ble him to bound like one or the feline speoies.
He is a tall, strong man, able to stand all
weathers, and to defend himself. It is said
that on one occasion he was seised by five
men, who surrounded him and succeeded in
holding him fast. Vnder his white overall
they found a breastplate, pistol and dagger.
He promised, if let go, not to annoy the neigh
borhood again, and they allowed him to escape.
Many are so muoh afraid of meeting him that
they will not venture out at dark, and the fao
