A Cnpltal Story. Somo years ago, an eccentric old genius, whom for convenience we will call Burner, was employed by a fanner living in a town some six nr seven miles westerly from the Penob scot river, to dig a well. The soil and sub stratum being mostly sand, old Burnet*, after having progressed downward about forty feet, found one morning upon going out to work that the well had essentially caved in, and was full nearly to the top. So having that desire which most men have, of knowing what would he said of them after they are dead, and no one being yet astir, he concealed Himself in a rank growth of burdocks by the side of a i board fence near the mouth of the well, hav ing first left his hat and frock upon the wind lass over the well. At length, breakfast was ready, a boy was dispatched to tail him to his meal, when lo! and behold! it was seen (hat Buriu-s was buried in the grave unconscious ly dug by bis own hands. The alarm being given and the family assembled, it was dccid ed first to eat breakfast and then send for the coroner, the minister, and his wife and children. Such apathy did not flatter Barnes’ self-cPtcem a bit, but he waited patiently, de termined to hear what was lo be said and sec? • what was to be seen. Presently all parties arrived and began “pros pecting" the scene of the catastrophe, ns people usually do in such cases. At length they drew together to exchange opinions as to what should he done. The minister at once gave it as his opinion, that they had better level up the well and let Burnes remain; for said ho, ho is now beyond the temptation to sin, and in the day of judgment it will make no difference whether he is buried five feet under the ground or fifty, for he is bound to come forth in cither case. The coroner like- j wise agreed that it would be a needless ex pense to bis family or to the town to disinter him when he was so effectually buried, and therefore entirely coincided with the minister. His wife thought that as he had left his hat And frock, it would be hardly worth while to dig him out for the rest of his clothes, and so it was settled to let him remain. But poor old Burnes, who had no breakfast, and was not at all pleased with the result of the inquest, laid quiet until the shade of the evening stole over the landscape, then he quietly decamped to parts unknown. After remaining incognito for about three yoar«, one morning he suddenly appeared (listless and frockless ns he went) at the door of the farmer for whom ho had agreed to dig the unfortunate well. To say that an ava lanche of questions were rained upon him ns to his mysterious re-appearance, etc., would convoy but a feeble idea of the excitement his bodily presence created. But the old man bore it all quietly, and at length informed them that on finding himself buried, bewailed for them to dig him out until his patience was exhausted, when he set to work lo dig himself out, and only the day before bad succeeded ; for his Ideas being somewhat confused by the pressure of the earth at the time he was bu ried, ho bad dug very much at random, and instead of coming directly to the surface, he came out in the town of Holden, six miles east of the Penobscot titer ! No further explanations were sought for by those who were so distressed and sorrowful over bis supposed final resting place HORNITOS, MARIPOSA COUNTY, CALIFORNIA, THURSDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 1, 1857. A Terrible Duel. A few days since, says the St. Louis Trader, ns a New England gentleman, whose name wc shall call Brown, was passing a few days at a hotel in one of our western cities, he had the ! misfortune, unintentionally, to offend the bus- I ceptihlc honor of Militia Colonel, who was one ,of his fellow boarders. IBs apologies not be ing satisfactory, a challenge was sent him, which, however, he declined upon conscien tious sent; les. The Colonel, who, by the way, had won in two or throe encounters quite a reputation ns a duelist, at once conceived the idea that his opponent was a coward, and re solved to disgrace him in the face of all the wisdom of the house. Accordingly, the next day, at dinner time, in marched the ducllcst, armed with a cowhide, and, advancing to Brown’s chair, proceeded to dust his jacket for him in the most approved style. Brown was astonished. Luckily, he had been Lieu tenant of the Militia in his native State, and he knew the importance of incommoding his I enemy by a diversion. So, seizing a gravy tureen, he tossed the contents into the face of i the belligerent Colonel, and before he could I recover from the drowning sensation thus oc ; rationed, he sprang upon the table and began 1 to shower upon him with a liberal band the I contents of the dishes around. “You are an infernal—” “ Coward ! ” the Colonel was about to say, ! but at that moment a plate of greens struck full upon bis mouth, and the word was block ed—lost forever. “Ha!” cried the New Englander, whose I blood was now up, “ fond of greens, arc you? Take a potato, too?” and he burled a telling volley of bard potatoes at him. “ Excellent eggs here; capital, with calves’ I head,” and crash! came a plate of soft boiled I eggs against the side of his cranium. The blows of the cowhide, which had hith i erto descended upon the Yankee’s head and shoulders, now began to fall more weekly and | mildly, and it became evident that the assail- j ■ ant, half stunned, choked, and partially blind- ' ed, was getting the worst of it. His courage was oozing out. “ Take a turkey ? ” shouted Brown, as a no ble old gobler descended fairly upon the Colo nel’s head, and bursting, Ailed bis buir and I eyes with delicious looking stuff; “here’s the fixings,” ho continued, as the squash and jelly followed after. By this time the Colonel was irretrievably defeated ; ami ns his merciless opponent seized j a huge plum pudding, steaming hot, and seem ed about to bury him beneath it, ho quailed in terror, arid throwing down bis cowhide, turned about and made a rush for the door. “Stop for the pudding, Colonel; stop for the pudding,” shouted Brown. “Padding, Colonel; pudding, pudding!” screamed ail bis fellow boarders, amid convul sions of laughter. But the Colonel was too terrified, and did not cease running until he bad locked himself into bis room. But although the Colonel escaped from the pudding, he did not escape from the ridicule which the affair occasioned. He subsequently challenged four persons, against whom his ire was particularly excited, and they all consent ed to fight, but availing themselves of the privilege of the challenged party, named pud ding bags for their weapons. At length, the unhappy duellist, finding no one who was wil-, ling to shoot or be shot at, ivas obliged to quit the Slate. Jncorrioihle. —A lady having a drunken husband, resolved to frighten him into temper ance. She therefore engaged a watchman, for a stipulated reward, to carry “ Phi lander” to the watch-house while yet in a state of insensibility, and to “frighten him a little” when he recovered. In consequence of this arrangement, he was waked up about eleven o’clock at night, and found himself lying on a pine bench in a strange and dim apartment. Raising himself on his elbow, be looked around, until his eye rested on a man silting by a stove, and smok ing a cigar. “ Whore am I ?” asked Philander. “In a medical college I” said the cigar smoker. “ What a-doing there ?” “ Going to be cut up !” “ Cut tip ! —how conies that ?” “ Why, you died yesterday, while you were drunk, and wo brought you here to make a ’natomy!” “It’s a lie—l ain't dead !” # “No matter; we bought }*our carcass arty how, from your wife, who had a right to sell it, for it’s all (lie good she could ever trakc of you. If you’re not dead, it’s no fault of the doctors,’ and they'll cut you up, dead or alive!” “ You will do it, eh ?” u*ked the old sot “ To be sure we will— now — immediately ,” was the resolute answer. “ We-ell, look a’ here, can’t you let u$ hate iomething to drink before you begin f” Philosophy.— When we were children, we used to think when it rained on the old home stead it rained all over the world. And no sunlight ever had so much interest for us as that did which wc saw shining on the side of! a distant hill, while the big drops rattled right | merrily upon the roof. It was a grand dis-; covery to make—and so it did not rain all over ; the world "THE UNION AND ITS GOVERNMENT nolng 111 Toll First. “Animals,” said the narrator, “ sometimes very nearly approach reason in their cunning. I got interested in the study of serpents down in Arkansas, where I spent the most of last year. I don’t know why, but 1 was constant ly placing them in new situations, and sur rounding them with novel expedients. Of all kinds, I experimented most with rattlesnakes and copperheads. One afternoon, I seated myself on a knoll in the woods to smoke and read—for 1 always had a book or newspaper with me—and had been enjoying myself for some time, when I espied a copperhead mak ing for a hole within ten feet of where I sat. Of course I threw down my book and segnr, and proceeded to try a new experiment. As soon as I stirred, the rascal made a rush for the hole, but I ca.ight his tail as he got nearly in, and jerked him some twenty feet back ward. lie threw himself into a coil in no time, and waited for mo to pitch in. Hut I concluded to let him try his hole again. After a while he started for it, stopping when I stirred, to coil himself up; but as I kept pretty quiet, he recovered confidence and went in. Again I jerked him out. No sooner did he strike the ground than he made a grand rush for the hole in a straight line for my legs! But that did’nt work, fur I got out of the way and gave him another flirt! This time he lay still awhile, appearing to reflect on the course to ho taken. After a time he tried it again, though ra‘hcr slowly. After getting his head a little way in, !.d stopped and wiggled his (ail ns if on purpose for me to grab it. I did so, and quicker than a flash he drew his head out and came within n quarter of an inch of strik ing mo in the face. However, I jerked him quite a distance, and resolved to look out for him the next time. Weil, he tried the same game again, hut it would’nt work—l was too quick for him. This time he lay in a coil for hnlf an hour without moving. At last berried it once more. lie advanced to within five feet of the hole very slowly, coiled again, and then, by heaven ! —got the start of me by one of the cutest tricks you ever heard of.” “How was that?*’ we all exclaimed in a breath. “ Why,” said the narrator, sinking his voice to the acme of solemnity, and looking as sober and honest as a man could look, “ why, he just turned his head toward my hand, and went down the hole tail first 1” A Good Dodge. — A gentleman in New York, whose family was out of the city, occupied two rooms in the second story of a fashionable lodging house. At these lodgings ho has a few liltlc pictures and curiosities, and a collec tion of papers, of but little value to any but the owner. Having occasion to leave town for a few days last week, with the fact before his eyes that most rooms vacated for twenty-four hours were entered and ransacked, and with but little confidence in the metropolitans, the gentleman arranged matters as follows: On the (able of one room ho left a paper on which he wrote, “ Look on the table in the other room, Mr. Thiefand on the table in the other room, ho left the following memoran dum : “Don’t steal any thing out of these two rooms, or injure anything, and send to No. —, South street, and I will give you ten ($10) dol lars, and no questions asked, any time after Monday next.” This paper was duly signed, and could not fail to strike the eyr of any per son entering the room. The gentleman re turned on Monday, and found that his room had been entered, as he anticipated; hut ev ery thing was in perfect order, and nothing was missing hut the memorandum and prom ise to pay. On Wednesday a very polite ser vant called, and presenting the two papers in an envelope, remaikcd that a gentleman wait ing outside in his carriage, would be pleased to receive the money. Thereupon the gen tleman forked over the ten dollars, observing the conditions faithfully, and never even looked out of the window to sec (he carriage drive away, or try to get a squint of its occu pant. A Toss-up with Roval^tv.— Last summer, an American who was on u visit to St. Peters burg, happened to be walking in one of the narrow streets of that capital one muddy day, when he suddenly met the Grand Duke Con stantine. The sidewalk was not wide enough for two persons to pass, and the street was deep in filth. Both stopped, and a moment’s awkward pause ensued. Suddenly the Amer ican took a silver ruble from his pocket and shook it in his closed hands, and cried out: “Crown or tail?” “Crown I” guessed the Grand Duke. “ Your highness has won,” said the American, looking at the ruble and step ping into the mud. His cuteness in saving his dignity, while he acknowledged the Grand Duke’s, brought him an invitation the next day to dine with the latter. Faddv Bewildered. — A fanner once told his man, who was thoroughly Irish, to run into the pasture and catch an ox. “I mean the off one , I will manage the other myself,” said ho. Pat ran to do ns he was bidden, but suddenly paused on his way, with the excla mation. “ He’s a reasonable fellow, bedad ; and how* am I to know’ which is the orphan f" If five and a half yards make a porch, how many will make a trout? General Harney. — A correspondent of the y. Y. 7 'ribune, says: In personal appearance General Harney is impressive. lie is consid erably over six feet tall, and is large boned and tnoscular. His hair was red, but is now thickly mixed with white—lie wears it short, and is beginning to be bold. His moustaches and board arc nearly white, and are also thick and clipped short; his eyes are blue and dull, and he uses spectacles. In younger years he must have been a model of physical strength and vigor, but he now looks older than he re ally is, for his nge, I believe, does not exceed fifty-five. While in St. Louis, I heard nn an ecdote illustrative of his character, which I have rover seen in print. Being in New York j ninny years ago, he passed a store in one of the principal streets, in which an auctioneer was soliciting bids for nn engraving of General Jackson. Both the seller and the crowd wore no political friends of the subject of the pic ture, and were ridiculing it in every possible nyinnor. “ How much am I offered for the Hero of Now Orleans?” cried the man at the stand. “ Only half a cent ? Why, he’s wortli a cent, surely, after robbing the Bank. Make it a cent, won’t you, gentlemen? Now, then, how much am I offered ?” “ One hundred dollars !” said a voice very emphatically, and Col. Har ; my entered the door; “ one hundred dollars, *ir!” ho repeated, making his way through ! the crowd, half a head taller than any other man in the room. The auctioneer, naturally I astonished, inquired if the man was in earnest, and started again on his witticisms. “Sir, I 1 am in earnest, and I claim my bid,” interrupt ed the Colonel, “and if no one bids more, I claim the picture.” No ono bidding more, he | handed the auctioneer the money and his ad j dress. “ And now, sir,” he remarked, seizing I him by the collar, and dragging him to the floor, i “ I claim the privilege of applying the Los | tinado to your body for your damnable imper tinence !” And having caned him to his satis- J faction, no one in the crowd venturing to inter -1 fere, he strode out of the store, and continued his walk down the street. Analyze the qual ify of character necessary for a man to he the actor in such a scene, and I think you will dis cover the traits which military men consider to fit Gen. H irney eminently as the leader of this Utah expedition. A Singular Cask. —A Pennsylvania paper relates the case of a canal boatman, who came in collision with a bridge, which, as the boat was passing under it, struck him on the back [•art of his head, and knocking therefrom a portion of the skull hone, which was found shortly after, as free from extraneous substan ces nu if it had been extracted by the bands of a demonstrator of auotorny. Tho wounded man, who was sleeping on the deck at the time, was, of course, instantly aroused by the concussion, and what is very remarkable, rose to bis feet, perfectly unconscious of the extent of the injuries he hud received by the collision. ' Tho slight pain in the back of his head gave him no trouble whatever, and it was only after , ho bad dressed himself, and one of his com panions had found the bone on deck, that he was aware of the unfortunate mutilation of his I head. After this discovery. I>r. Uutherford, of i Elmira, was summoned, who, after washing the man’s brain, and replacing if, and arrang- [ ing the splinters of the adjacent parts of the skull in a proper manner, informed him that was nil he could do for him. With this the wounded man departed, in a perfectly talional state, to his home. We doubt if the experi ence of any member of the medical profession can show a similar case to the above. Forcing a Jruv. — Tho following plan is stated to have been pursued by some officials at I lie late Worcester session to hasten tho de cision of a refractory jury, who were locked up to consider their verdict. It was past dinner time, and the couit officials had no rel ish to pass the night in wailing upon the twelve conscientious men. A large dish of beefsteak, fried with onions, giving off a body of aroma smllcicnt to fill the largest hall in England, was brought into the passage close to the door of the unhappy jurymen’* prison. The bail iff, who wished the “ stand-outs” at Jericho, opened the door; the cover was taken off the dish; the aroma of the steaks and the onions floated in; it invaded and pervaded ev ery square inch of the black hole, mid the jury’s nasals were violently affected. Mere mortal Englishmen couldn’t long resist such a remembrance of dinner. A second opening of tho door and advancement of the dish ena bled the jury to find a verdict. DEi.iariTFCL Custom.—Tho Newport New* thus speaks of the bathing customs at Cape May: There is one fashion prevailing nt Cape May which has not yet been introduced at New port. The ladies go into the water promiscu ously with “ beaux,” making regular engage ments, ns for a dance, to meet them on the bench or ouiong the breakers. There is one bright eyed little gipsy from Baltimore, the belle of Congress Hull, who is “engaged ahead” for bathing, as well as dancing, during the remainder of the season; and sometimes, in order to keep the peace among her admirers, she has to bathe with three or four gentlemen of a morning, allowing each by turns the felici ty of floating or ducking her dear little figure.
