ON THE TfiAIL I sm a police superintcnilent in a large nron-making torrn. and for opwanlK of tventy yeus have had the care of a pop aloui colliers' dutrict. The peculiar av ocations of the people anpply ample dis uist for criminals in hidiog. Who -vrbtild look for a runaway clerk in the black face and coal-stained garments of a collier, or in the gnie of a laborer in the troo-ihed ? It may be agsnmed, there fore, that in the coarse of so lone a serv ice, many a strange incident has come teaader my notice; some of these I may '-jcca.kmally prrsent to the reader.- Oae, in particular, I remember well. as practically illustrating the remark -made in the Times on the conviction of 'Mnller. that crimes of concpicoons char- 'cter are generally corumitlod by the class tbat is leant espected. I was called, ono ereniajr., to qnell a diatnrbaaee betwesa several colliers and party of Irwbwen. The colliers, it ap pears, maddened with drink, had xsiailed the latter, irrv then iato dwelling, and would fpredily have killed one or "more, bot for thepportnne arrival of the police. The nigfct after arils, I received note from th raitrotd authorities, that coal train had been thrown off the line 'by soma miscret or other, who had placed sleepers along the rails. Knowing that colliers working at a distance inva riably retorawl fcv dtece trains, and re- fcexaberreg t!re strnggle of tlie nigrit be 'Tore, I at nce concluded this to be an attempt at frith revenge. vad porsaroi ray vsveatigUtna aceordnigty.

He had ta ken op the rail nearest the ravine for I have omitted to mention tbst there was a steep precipice at this point -arid'iatn-rally;tho0ght tfint lbs tfaTfl, woold have lombled over., Tbe rail next to the rivr was the "safe" one, and so the engine simply ploughed along towtfrd the scarp of tbe mountain. When tbe details of this Incky escape reached me. .1 felt tbtt my repntation was at stake. This was evidently No. Three of the diabolical attempts of tbe same hand. The first inqniry naturally was, who drove tbe train? end one of two qnestions of similar character put me in possesion of tbe fact that tbe driver of this train, and tbe driver of tbe coal train at the time tbe tracks were thrown off the track, was one and the aame person. Now, then, for the driver, said I, and marched to his lodging. I fonnd bim a qniet, inoffensive yonng fellow, and not a likely msn to have a malignant enemy. He was unmarried, and somewhat fresh as to his duties on this line, not having been in the position very long. We, at once touched on the snbject of the acci dent, but I fonnd be was quite at sea at to the cause. "Have yon an enemy," said I, "or any one that entertains malice against yon?" No ; he thought not. You are unmarried, I believe 7" Yes ; he was. "Courting, perhaps," I suggested. He confessed to the soft impeachment. "Have you any objections to tell me who the lady is 7" inquired I ; "for we police officers are sometimes obliged to override delicate scruples. He mention ed the nnme of a young lady residing at a farm lionee six miles down tbe valley, and within half a mile of the scene of tbe accident. I drew a long breath, but kept roy own counsel. "Oh. so. the damsel lives there, does she 7 Now,- has she any other sweet hearts beside yourself 7" He thought there had been one, a car penter ; hnt, quoth th'e driver, conipta- centlv stroking au incipient beard, "She linn no lover now bnt me." "Whore does this carpenter reside 7" "About half a mile from the. farm," he answered. With this T left, fully sstiKfied now that I teas on the trail. The morning after, and at the scene of the accident, I had found a large, thick strike, cut evidently from the adjoining wood. This bad been used to prise np the rail from tbe sleeper. Examining it minutely, I saw that it had been cot re cently, and that with a notched knife. So, with this idea uppermost, I started on the mission, and after a pleasant ride, reached tbe little hamlef where tbe car penter lived. The district is very moun tainous and rngged, and' as I mounted the winding road towards the bonse, I could distinctly hear the monotone of tbe river near which no narrow an escape bad taken place. Yonder was tbe scene was the criminal here? Tbe door was opened to my knock, and by the carpen ter himaelf, a cool, sell-powessea yonng man, who reamed to read my errand in a moment, yet asked me what I wanted, without the change of a muscle. I enter ed inlo the little room, and told him that I had a suspicion be could enlighten me on the, cuse of the accident. No, he couldn't ; he had beard of it, like the rest. Woold he allow me tosearch him 7 Certainly; and forthwith various thine were in my hand. On his person I found two pocket knives, either of which would have served to cot the stake. As I panted a moment, and held them in mv hand, be heedlessly observed : "That knife." pointiBg to one, "I only pnt to my pocket this morning; as I gen erally keep it at home." I opened the knife; tbe blade was notched and looking op from the article to the carpenter, caught his eye. We. knew one another in a moment, bat be accompanied me to the town tranquil eoocgh. At the trial, the knife figured in evidence ; virions corroborating mat ters satisfied the jury of his gnilt ; he was fonnd guilty, and aenteaced to seven years trnnaportatro. It tomed ont afterwards that he loved the farm girl, and was incited by jealonsy to the act wtndt to nearly caosed to frightful an accident.

For the benefit of, onr readers; we recently applied to an eminent phy sician for an opinion npon the subject, and a prescription that woold most read ily meet the requirements of thirsty 'peo nle dorincr the wtrm weather. 'Ginger, said. the doctoral consider me very oest article, most easuy procur ed, and least .expensive for all persons to employ." By itt, proper;"; nse, they may have cold water in abundance, and at 'the tame timd avoid most if hot. all' thE .ill effects produced by (be cooling abom inations a great many people ponr down their throats in hot .weather. TelIryonr retdere, continued tbe physician, to bny a-few ounces of powdered ginger; and, every, lima tpey are thirsty, Itt them, mix htlf a tetspoonful in tha. cold water, they desire to drink. If a apoonful of sugar and molasses It added, it will.do no harm. Extract of ginger may alBO.be employed by 'those who prefer tbe article, in that form. ' A bottle of the extract, should be placed near pitcher .or" cooler"; and, when people drink, let them pour a tea spopnfnl of the extract in their tnmpler before filling it with wster. 'For my nte. ttid tbe doctor, I prefer tbe powdered article, because I think it. acts more ben eficially. In the West Indies, tbit root it considered one of the best prevent. ires for tbe summer complaints or the tropics, when it is properly used.' HOW TO DoOBLE THE YaLOE OF SAW- ed Shinoles. Fir, hemlock and tome oth'or kinds of shingles can be made to last sbont twice at long as nsnal, by im mersing them for a few minutes in ttrong lime water, which has about as much talt as will retdily dissolve in it. Old msat or fish pickle will answer. In proof of this, yon will find that any old piece of a mortar pen, or any wood im pregnated with lime, will not rot readily. I havo known common Ir shingles, pre pared as above, to last well, riling twen ty years, on tbe side of a roof of a buil ding, wheret. the other side, shingled with sawed cedar, without being pnt in lime water, did not last at long. No tawed ahinglo will last as long as shaved. My father's bonse was shingled, 37 years tiro, 'with shaved pine, the north tide hardily, needing rethingling yet. It might be a benefit to many of yonr read ers to hear from other who have tried the above, named experiment, for it is qnitean extra cost to resbtngla once in eight or twelve years. Mains Fanktt.

No toon ct had the women left tbe babies in charge of the mischievous devils, thin they strip pe'd the infants, and changed their clothes, giving the apparel "of one to another. The:dance over, it was time to go home; and the mothers: boiriedly took each a baby in the dress of her own, and started for their homes, some of them ten or fif teen miles off. and were far on their way before daylight. Bot the day following. there was a tremendous row in the set tlement: mothers discovered tbat a sin gle night bad changed tbe sex of their babies observation disclosed physical phenomena, and then commenced tome of the tallest female oedettrlanism. Liv ing miles spirt; It required two days to unmn tbe babies, and as many montns to restore .the women to their natural sweet dispositions. To this dsy, it is unsafe for sny of the btby mixers to ven ture into the territory.
