A few months ago a robust looking per son, dressed in tho becoming garb of a fe male domestic, made application at Durt's Intelligence Office, in this city, for a sit uation in the country to do ordinary house work. Soon after a lady of Schohario co-jnly applied for "help ;" but those she selected were unwilling to leave town. Tho "domestic" above referred to, how ever, expressed her willingness to engage, but tho lady did not ko her appearance. Rut finally she was reluctantly compelled to accept of her services. She accordingly ordered her to appear with her trunk nt the Mansion House, at 8 o'clock the following morning where sho found her, in time, but quarrelling with tho carman, whom she olfercd a sixpence all tho money she said she had for conveying her box to tho place of rendezvous. The lady settled the difficulty, placed her protege in the sfigo and proceeded with her to her pleasant mansion in Old Schoharie. Nothing transpired for several days to disturb cuhor mistress or servant. The latter took hold with most wonderful in dustry rising at 4 o'clock every morn ing and working so long as thero was any work to bc done. The first remark on her eccentricities, was made by a little girl, who entered t!io parlor, with open fhou;h and eyes, ex claiming : think, that Oh ! gramma, what do you new L'irl noes down the cellar stairs at a single jump! but tins was not deemed sufficiently strange to ex cite any other remark than that she was a "smart girl." New developments were in reserve. A few evenings after, when all tho workman were nt supper fifteen or twenty in number the household was startled by the boisterous laughter of the nvn. On inquiring tho cause, it appear ed that "Elizabeth" had, on a b'tnicr, jumped square over the broad table, dibhea and nl!, at a bound, and ollercd to wager a new bonnet that sho would do the same thin if a chair were placed on lop of the table only stipulating for a single step backward.

In a week or two, the gentleman of tho houso had on occasion to leave homo for a time, nnd was about to got into his car ringc, when it occurred to him that thoro might not bo money enough in tho salb for household und business purposes until his icturn. IIo looked through tho account book, and found that there should bo somo 3?5 in gold in the safe, besides somo pa per money. On looking to sec whether he was right, he found tho paper money but the gold had disappeared. Here wus "a go." "Who was the robber ?" was the next question. lie decided in his own mind that there was but ono servant in tho house with wit enough to get hold of tho keys and rcmovo tho money unob served. And sho was tho favorite and trustod iiursc of the grand-ehildrcn, whose mistress was then absent. It was deter mined therefore that she should be arrest ed, her trunk searched. &c. A search warrant was accordingly obtained, with ,!;....,:., , .i m . i ,. . d. ecl.ons to the otllcer to be in readiness r null DCiU lur. As if to confirm thejustico of these sus picions, tho girl informed tho son-in-law, whose children sho had nursed, that she would leave in a few days although she had frequently expressed a desire to always live with the family, who had uni formly treated her with great kindness. "What do you mean, Mary, by this sud den determination ?" "Because there are thoso about the house who are stealing ever) thing they can get their handson ; nnd 1 cannot stay where they aro." "Why did you keep this information from us V "Because w hen I went to tell Mrs. , she said sho would not lislen to nnv complaints from servants about each other, and com-i polled mo to bc silent." "To whom dot you refer!" "To 'Elizabeth' who has! been stealing something every day." She then proceeded to name several articles which sho knew "Elizabeth had stolen, and to justify herself for the course she ' had resolved upon. This revelation changed tho aspect of affairs, and the fact that the same day "Elizabeth" announced her determination ! to leave next morinm;, did not render them any the less interesting, but prom ised a moro speedy denouement than was anticipated. It w as against her trunk that ihc search warrant was now directed, just as it w as ready to bo placed on the M.i"c. .-! .1 I I ... .1... I .i uncovering !

A story bus been circulated in this country of tho frightful ro-appcarnnco of mu ionuon plague, which ravaged that cily a hundred and fifty years ago, the contagion having been derived frernboncs disinterred in carrying a new sewer through Argylo street, by digging to nn unusual death. It is asserted that physi cians have pronounced that tho diseaso is not the cholera, but that it is undoubtedly tho plague, nnd that it is proposed by contagion, and is even moro speedy in its fatal effects than tho cholera. Tho wri- .- in an uniciu wunoui ciatc, wriich is copiod from' tho Home Jour not savs that "Tho disease, in a week from tho time nt which it broke out, had completely rava ged tho streets in Soho and its immediate vicinity.

When wc saw this accidcut, a general confusion ensued and a man ascending from the hold cried out that tho vessel was filling with water, which created a general panic among the passengers and crew. To lower a boat, nnd precipitate ourselves into it to tho number of seven or eight, was tho work of n minute, and wo proceeded towards the American vesselj-which continued its route towards land.
