"Fourteen years ago I drove from Dun
buiy to Littleton, a disiance of forty-two
miles; and as I had 10 await for the arrival
of tWo other coaches i did iibt start till
after dinner; bo l .veiy ofteu had a good
distance to drive after dark. It was in
the dead of winter,' and the season had
been a rough one. A great deal of snow
had fallen, anu the drifts were plenty ' and
deep. :'fhe mail whbh I cartied was not
due at Littleton by the con tract, until one
o'clock in the morning, but that winter
the postmaster was Very 6fiin obliged to
sit up a little later than that ibr me, He
knew what a luck, I had for travel, so he
found no lault, and government was as
well satisfied as I was. - r - ,
"One day I think it was about the
middle of January, when I drove up for
my mail at Dunbury the postmaster called
,me into his office..- i . , , .-, . . -
eaid he, with an imnorUnt.
serious I.ibk, "there's some! pretty "heavy

ptjinted at the mail, bag as he spoke. He,
said the money was ftvm Boston, and was
going to eonie laud agents, up near, the
Canada line. 'Then he asked me if Pd
got any ' passengers ' who ' Were going

But Buppoee I harenM" tayti.

about the, otlie.r., told.tlje old,-fellow I
gueused there, wa9 n't much danger. , t r
"Oli, no,'' says jie"nv you're got
passengers through; but I only told you
of this so that you might look out for
your mail, and keep an eye on il when you
stop to change horses."
1 assured him that I should do so, and
theii I look the bag under my aim,, and
It ti the office. , When 1 reached my team,
I stowed the mail away uuJer my seat a
little more carefully than usual, planing it
so thai J c iut Id keep my feet against il, but
beyond this 1 did uot then leej aiiy con
cern. It was half pat one when I siaried,
and 1 had four passengers, i.wo of whom;
rode only to my , nrttt stopping j lace. y 1
reached Gowan's Mills at daik, when we
slopped for supper, and where my other
two passengers ouiicluileil to stop lor the,
night. They had no particular business to
huiry them, 60 tliev preleried to lai.e a
more comfortable season for traveling over
the dubious road that Hy belore them. .
- Thus, at aiamt six o'clock in the .eve
ning, I left Go wau's Mills alone, having
two horses and an open punif. As there
was but little travel on this end of the
rouie,, I used .to , leave my covered sleigh
at the Mills and lake thepung, which was
not only much lighter, but not so top
heavy in the drills. 1 had seventeen miles
to go, a hard seventeen miles it was, too.
The night was quite clear but the wind
was sliarp aud cold, the loose snow was
flying in ail di tec lion's,, while the drills;
Wei e deep and closely packed . It was slow,
tedious wui k, and my horses soon became
leg-weary and restive. At the disiance
of six mih'8 from Gowan's I came to a lit
tle settlement ciilled'BuH's corner, where 1
took horses. . I'd been two hours; Koiiof
,that distance, - J usl as 1 was ready Jo start
irtMit fim,- nun efTOfe iFmf e liwt -
ii i was go ng mrougn w wiiwiou,,, i uiiu
I.ioi I should go tniough if the thing could
possibly bd done. He said he was .very
anxious to go, He had no baggage,, so-1
lold l.iin to jump in, and muke himself as
c'jml'ortable as possible.; 1 was; about
gathering up the reins, when the hostler
came oui from the little stable and asked
me if I knew that one of my horses had
cut hinictflf very badly. . 1 jumped oui
and went with my informant aud . found
that one of the animals had got a deep tioi k
cut upon theoti'-toe-foot. I (.'ave such di
rections as 1 thought; necessary, and was
abuu l to turn away, when the hostler re
maiked that he thought I 'came in alone.
I . I I I . j . . . -,-.'!
i.ioiu iiiih i ma. 1 -..- . . .
Then where'd you get that passen-
stud lie. " ;
"He jilst got ini" I answered.1 ' ' '
"Got itMrom where'?"' '
. "I don't know." ' " ' :'s
1 " Well, riow," says the hostler,; "tb'at'a
kind of curious. There hain't no Such
man been at the liou e-, and I knoW there
hain't been at. any -of the neighbors. ;
Wliere u he come tromT "
I 'That was the question. ;A for the
neighbors, there were , only three other
'dwelling houses at the Corner,, and the
stable boy knew that no stranger had been
at any ol ihem during the evening. ,
"Let's have, a look at his fav-e,;" said I.
"We can get thai much at any rate.. Do
you go back wiih me, and as I get into the
pting, you hold your lament so the light
will shine into' his lace." . ' '"'
The boy did as I wished, and as I
stepped aboard of 'my pung, I got a fair
view of such portions of my passenger's
face as wele uot muffled up. 1 saw a short,
thick trame; full hard features; and I could
also see ihat thera was a heavy beard un
der, the ohin.v I.tlwught of the man whom
the Pustmastvr, described to me, but I
didn't think seriously upon it until afier I
had started. Per.iaps i had gone half a
mile when1! noticed that the, mail-bag
wasn't in its'old plane under my feet.
,,. "Hallo.'" says i, holding up my horses
a liule.'where's my mail?" My passen
ger sat on-the' seat behind me, aud as I
spike I turned towards him.
". "Here is a ' bag of some kind slipped
ba k under my feet," he said, giving it a
kick as though he'd shoved it forward.1
Just at that moment my horses lum
bered into a deep -snow drift, aud I was
forced to gel out and tread down ahead of
them, and lead them through it. This
took me all of fifteen minutes, and when 1
got in again I pul'ed the mail-b g forward
and put my feet upon it. As I was doing
this, 1 saw the man take something from
his lap, beneath the buffalo, and put ii into
Ins breast pocket. : At hist 1 thought it
was a small liquor flask, fmij upon second
thought I hud made up my mind thai it
was a pistol. I had t aught a gleam of the
barrel in the . starlight and when I had
tirne to reflect, I knew that 1 was not mis
taken. ' " -.-',.' ', .' -..
-About this time I began to think some
what seriously. From what I. had heard.
and seen, 1 soon ma le up my mind that
the. individual behind me not only meant
to rob the mail, but that he prepared toiob
me of my life: If I tesisted him he would
shoot me, and perhaps he meant to perform
hat aeieotame operation at any rate--
While I was pondering, the horses plunged
itiU aridities deep drift,'a(i I'WK;i,Wri
forced to get out anil tread down ()
before them., ; I asked; mf iwenger. if he
would help roe; .but ,he f itt .hedidti', feel

to consider what l had best do under the

making up my mind upon a few essential
points; brat, the man behind me whs a
villain. Secoii J, he had cut open the mail
bag and lobbed if of some valuable matter.
He must have known the money letters by
their aise and shape. , Third, hstmeant to
leave the stage on the first favorable oppor

shoot me if I attempted to arrest or detain
him. ' , ,,,,, ' , . ,
I resolved these things over in my

to pnrsue. ,1 knew if I could , get my
hands safely uptn the rascal, I must lake
him wholelv nuarvares, and this I could
pot do whde he was behind me, for his
eye was upon me all the lime, so 1 musi
resort to a stratagem. .Only a little dis

farmer named Lougee lived, and directly
before which a huge enow bank stretched
across the road, thro', which a Hack for
teams had to be cleared with shovels. . As
we approached the col 1 saw a light in tl e

for the old man gene i ally sal up uni 1 the

a pisiol J'i'oiii ; his boom; but 1 saw it in

snow again, and got the weapon away from
him, ; By, this time Lougee had, led the
horses out and came back, and! explained
the matter to him in as few words as pos
sible, We hauled the rascal out into, the
road,, and , upon, examination ..we found
about twenty packages ol letters, which he
had stolen from the mail bag, stowed away
in his. pockets.:; u. :, i.uvf,-n.
He swore, and threatened, and begged,

secure, and wiiliin a week' he was identi

the opinion that he's in the State's prison
at the present moment. At any rale, he

An Indian Tehpkhancb Society.
Some of the Indians mi Lake Superior,

amount of money in small sums, which
they entrusted to the keeping of a chief
in whom they had implicit confidence.
This dignitary, like the rest of . human
kind, was not infallible, and one day when
he was over to Bayfield he got on a spree
and spent it all.-The ad men had an

America alitl North American, is ths most
important which we have had since the
reception of the famous address of the
Emperor Napoleon to Baron Ilubner, the
Austrian ' Ambassador which foreshad
owed the tialwn war. The intelligence
nmy be ihus briefly summed up:
The Zurich treaty lately concluded be
tween France and Austria, gives no se
curity to the Italian people; is distasteful
to them, and inspires the other great pow
ers with distrust. ,
A' general European Congres must be
assembled, but whether its members can
solve the fate of Italy or not, is doubtful.
Owing to the unbending attitude of the
Pope wnh respect to temporal reform, aud
his hostile position toward the liberals of
the Romagna, it was thought that Gari
baldi' would soon head a revolution, which
would entirely bweep away his temporal
ities. England will not, as surmised, he rep
resented in the Congies, as she dislikes
the Zurich treaty to be mede a basis of
Napoleon will hold back his expedition'
to China, wiih the hope of coercing Loid
Paluierston to send an envoy to the Co'n

good measure his Italian policy1.

'.An exciting agitation has 'sprung rip in
France,, oip the question of ihe - Pope's
lemporal power, the Ulira-MontaniHt and
OtTiaiiist cleitfy taking a 'decided stand in
support of the Holy Father's claim1, while
the Emperor,' with -many of !the 'people,
are silently and, quietly ranging : them
selves in opposition., The Jaie p.tstoral of
the Archbishop of Orleans, an ardent t up
porter of the Orleans family, had produced
a very decided sensation,
j Prussia was determined to cultivate a
mora intimate alliance with Russia, and
thus enable herself to prosecute the humil
iation ot Austria in the Germanic Confed
eration. 1'or this purpose the Prince Re,
gent had set put from Berlin to meet the
Ccar at Bresjau, both monarchs being at
tended by their. Secretaries of State for
Foreign A flairs. ..The, reform feeling
evoked in ,Rome, at the moment of ihe
departure of the Sardinian Minister, had
not at all. subsided, and were it not for
military discipline and nbedieiice of the
French troops, it was thought that the
soldiers of Napoleon even would join lite
inhabitants in again driving the Pope into
exile, as ii temporal uler. .
Thus, you see, with all these elements
of discord at. work, we may soon expect
stirring events' on the other side of the

aspects of affaire, there -is the San Juan

baker boy in Brooklyn. One day he
chanced to be in the Navy Yard at Brook

would like to' enter the Navy. So going
to the proper officer, he applied for admis
sion. The novelty of seeing a lad alone,
Itoldly asking tor a place so often secured
by political preferences, or by the entreat
ies of influential friends, at once attracted
the attention of the officer, and he in
quired, "What can you do?" The reply
was prompt and decisive: "Anything that
any other boy can do" ' He was told to
call again, and a few days passed, and the
place was given to ihe enterprising lad.
Scarcely injiis new position, he began to

The silly "bayi'met story" which a coun
try, journal manufactured to injure Mr.
Dtntiiaon as a candidate for Governor, has
been resuscitated by the Washington
"Constitution."''. It is transformed, ho-i
ever, by the very skillful organist from the
utterance of a private conversation,; as
originally stated, into a "declaration in
one of his public speeches." Mr. Denni,
sori, on tlie stump, has repeatedly and
pointedly denied ever having used any
suoh language or expressed any such idea
as was thus attributed to him,,. He has in
variably avowed just the opposite opinions,
and declared that the Fugitive Slave Law,
so long as it' is a law, ought to be obeyed. 1
If the Washington "Constitution" has any
sense of honorable dealing, it will promptly
correct lis misrepresentations o) Mr. Den
nison's position. No lespectable Demo
cratic paper in Ohio can be found to en
dorse the statement of the ( jovernment or
gan -on this subject. Every such journal
knows it to bu a gross- misiepresentaiion

account is given in "Appleton's Cyclope

The general estimate in Europe has
been eight or ten horses for every hundred

to every hundred inhabitants, which is
more than any oilier European country.
Great Britain and Iieland have 2,500000
horses; France, 3,000,000; Austrian Em-
