place, n farmer, while, driving ttom^rr
cows througb a deep forest adjoining!',
tis fields," unexpectedly came upon an ,
unusually large .buck stretched upon! I
the ground, and moaning away the ?
last moments of its existence. The
animal was evidently very old, aud in I
a sadly emaciated condition, so the r
fact that the fanner immediately put.
a bullet through its/'h^ad.: should
rather be looked upon i as an not ol i
compassion than otherwise; Just'"?.ji
he was about to leave, be observed a
round lump lipon the animal's siue,
which so attracted his attention that
ho stopped to examine it. Quickly- ?
discovering that close under the skin ?
was deposited a round, hard body, he i
used bis knife, and brought to light a
silver bullet such as was used in olden -
times for the enclosure of secret des
patches, lie carried this curiosity to
his house, where, after considerable
trouble, he succeeded in opening it,
and found to his great surpriso that it
contained a message written in cypher
upon paper attenuated to a high dot
grbe. Otherwise than that the papor
was slightly discolored (hot sufficient
ly, however, to obliterate the charac
ters.) Neither the bullet nor what it \
enclosed bore any evidence of its late
surroundings or of the strange vicissi
tudes through which it might preyious
ly have gone. Several men of science
have carefully inspected this relic i t'
the past, and are as. much at a loss to
decipher the message as they are to *
satisfactorily explain when and how !
the bullet came to be lodged in the
side of the buck."

It seems tj be generally accepted, a
that lJ:e signs of the times in the
money markets arc confirmatory of
the theorj' that the country is verging
towards a steady and prosperous busi

Mail remarks that the feeling in Wall
street is doubtless somewhat in antici
pation of "the good time coming," and
is not always controlled by good judg
ment, but it indicates unmistakably
the general conviction of our shrewdest
judges of the signs of the times, that,
the tide has at. last, begun to turn,
that money is seeking investmjuts,
add that confidence is coining back,
we hope "to stay." That is the gener
