In Dresden there is an iron egg, the history 1
of which is something like this: t
A young "Prince sent till.*, iron egg to a lady 1
to whom he was betrothed. She received it in' i
J her hand'and looked at it with disdain. In her i
indignation -that he should send her such a gift, i
she cast it to the earth. When it touched the
ground a spring,, cunningly hidden in the egg,
opened, and a silver-yolk rollod out* " She s
touched a secret spring in the yolk, and a gold- I
en chicken was revealed ; she'touched a spring s
in the chicken' and a crown'was found within, d
she touched a spting in the crown and within 11
it was found a diamond wedding ring. There v

A strjkiug illustration of the fidelity, of the slaves of
lie South to tlio cause for which their masters are
ighting is.n(l'orded by an incident Which occurred in
he vicinity on Sunday last. Two Yankee prisoners,
vhohad escaped from the cars near Florence, made
heir way to the plantation of L. W. R. Blair, Esq.',
valked bbldly up to lus negro quarter, asked for food
ind shelter. The negroes readily gavo both, and, to
jrovent them from being disturbed iu the enjoyment of
;he latter placed, a guard over them and. immediately
totified their, master. He at once had them brought
,o his house, placed a negro guard over them, and on
.lie loiiowing any, (Monday;, brougiit tneai to uamleu
and lodged them-in jail. "Whilo passing a thicket,
>n the way over, one of the prisoners leaped from the
vagon juid got away before Mr. B. could shoot him'
iown. One of the negroes,, however, pursued tho fugitive,
ran liim doVn, and escorted him safely into
Camden. A purse, we understand, has been made up
br- the negroes, and presented to them as a reward
'or their fidelity,.

if a piece of property tot which every. Lincoln

title than he did, and the slave, who knew

master of one half, or one third his own value,j
nstead of getting a small bounty or uotbing
it all from the recruiting officer.

From Florida.?Gen. Ashbath, who commands
the Federal forces at the Navy Yard,
learning last week that a scouting party of the
Fifteenth Confederate cavalry were near I'ensacola,
came out with a large force with a view
of capturing them. On Hearing the contemplated
scene of .action, Geri.- Ashbath learned
that this party was only a decoy, and that the
whole of the Fifteenth were raoving.to his rear,
and that instead of capturing anybody, he was
in a fair way of being gobbled up himself.?
Gen'. Ashbath took the back track in a hurry,
and in crossing tbo ford at the mouth of the
Big Bayou after dark neglected to make the
proper signal to the gunboats lying off that
point, and they mistaking Ashbath's for rebel
cavalry, opened with grape and canister, killing
27 and wounding a large number, also doing
cnnsidernble execution arnonf? th'e horses.

* -An Incident.?A Virginia correspondence
gives tbe following incident of the explosion
before Petersburg: ' <
It is said that a South Carolinian, lyho was
blown up last Saturday, fell to the ground and
escaped nnlrurt Gen. Be;aregard sent for
him and enquired about the circumstances.?
The soldier said : "He knew but very little,
that as he was coming down, he met two offi;
cers going up, who told him to fall back to Pe
tersbnrg as soon a? he landed on terra firma,
and he had obeyed it strictly." This will off- <
set "the Yankee who was blown up by the tor- '
pedo on tbc James river, and 6hot a Confeder
ate with bis repeater as he was coming down.
This I have given as one of the many camp ;
stories wherewith we while away the time.

A Newly Itested Stethoscope.?V. Koe-,
ing of Paris, his invented a stethoscope .which . H
promises to become very useful in clinical prac-'
tice, in which the instrument usually employe^, fl
is "often found inconvenient. . The new instrument
consists of a^at box slightly roundedj
containing a diaphragm of caoutchouc, which,
by blowing, is made to-assume a hemispherical
form. Jo the box thns prepared a. tube of ca-.
eutchoue, five or six yarns in length, is attach-.
cd, and, on applying the eat to the outer extremity
of this tube, tHc beating of the heart,
and the movement of the lungs can be distinct-.
Iv heard. This, it will be seen, is an important.
advantage, for the stethoscope can now be ap-- m
piied to the chest of a patient lying in bed, and*,
observations made without incoavehience to.
either party. There is, moreover, the further
advantage that five tulles can be screwed to
the box as easily "as one, whereby, during a
clinical lecture or examination, four students,
may listen to the movements of the chest of
the patient, while the surgeon is making his' . -I
observations thoreoD.
