I EVENING STAR. BLESS THE B AB Y . The reader may be curiou* to know at what period the event I am about to relaV occur red. Reasons of delicacy, however, prevent me from gratifving evon so reasonable a de sire; and I will onlj eay that the harrowing circumstance took place in the summer of a certain year, between the time of tbo arrival of the first bear at the Zoological Gardens in London and the present day. I had been a midshipman on board the well known ship named after his Majesty King Wil liam the Fourth; but, receiving letten. fr?m home announcing my father's death, I had just returned to take posFttmon, as well as ft minor could, of the family estate. I wan not very well acquainted with the worbl?ex<*cpt the liquid part of it?htving been brought up in a country-town and shij n?d in boyhood; but to mi>k* up for that I had an excellent opinion of myself. and watched both with pride and anxiety the sprouting of what I con ceived to bo a promising moustache. One evening, after getting myself into full tog. I was displaying my horsemanship near the Z oological Gardens, when I saw in the path leading to tho entrance one of the love liest women that ever appeared to tho eyes of an ex-reefer. What wu* that to me ? I do not know. It was a thing completely settled in my miiid that I was a full-grown man. and that a full-grown mar. has a right to look at my woman. In short, I di-m'-unted. gave my horse to the groom, and followed my divinity. A little girl was behind her, walking with tLc nursemaid, who had another child, an infant, in her arm*; and to my gn at satisfaction tl i< careless servant put the baby presently into the unns of the older giil not much bigger than itself. I watched the proceeding, saw the little creature whose walk was but a totter at the beer, ewaving to and fro under her bur den, and the baby a long clothes trailing on the eround. ''Madam, said I to the lady, touching mv hat in quarior-dcck fashion, " that babv, I fear, is in dangerous hands ; you are pe?hips not aware of it She turned round instantly. It wikf what I wanted ; but the flash I received from her beautiful eves had a world of haugh tiness in it; and although she bent her head slightly and said - Sir, I thank you," I did not dare to continue the conversation, but rap idly walked on. In fact, it w:u? obvious the woman thought I had taken an ulwarrantable liberty in criticising the arrangement* of her walk ; and as when turning aw.;y I caught a smile at ray discomfiture on the face of the nursemaid, who snatched tho baby roughly away, indignation mingled with my awkward ness. Who was this lady ? Was she tho mother of the two children? Was she the governess? Was she a relation ? Was she single or mar ried f She was single ; she was the mother's sister?I decided upon that. And after nil, was her haughty lo<>k Bo very reprehensible ? Had she not been addressed by a stranger, and that stranger a man?a man of somewhat du tingne. ligure and most promising moustaches' I relented, and us I saw her enter the gardens my heart gave a great leap, for I considered it uncommonly likely that a lion would broak loose, or something or other occur to draw forth my chivalry and extort her gratitude. I whs not in error in my anticipation*, although the circumstance that did occur was too wild even for an imagination like mine. Had it come suddenly I almost think I should have shut my eyes, held my breath, and stood still; but as it was, I had no time to reflect. The up permost idea in my mind was, that I would do something heroic, something desperate : and when opportunity offered I instantaneously did it. The party, with many others, were looking over the enclosure at the'bear on his pole; and in order that all might see, the nurse maid had the little girl in her unns, while the little girl bad the b?tl;y in hers. This arrangement was not very reprehensible a* a momentary freak; for the maid of course had got hold of both the children?the elder of whom was jumping with glee?and my attention therefore wad exclu sively directed to the lady, who st?K>d absorbed in the spectacle before me; All on a sudden, there was a scream from the little girl; the un fmuuuto baby was over the enclosure, and lying senseless on its face in tho arena, and the gigantic bear was hastily descending the pole to secure his prey. To climb the inclo.-uro and spring into the arena did not take me many moments, but it took mo too many. I was at a little distance from tho spot, and before I reached it tho bear had caught up tho infant, whose littleface wa*. buried in tho far, and, on my approach, made for tho pole, and began to ascend with great rapidity. I followed, without giving myself time for a moment's reflection, and while I climbed caught hold of the long clothes of tho baby. The action wad well-intended, but the consequences were dreadful, perhaps fata!, for the bear loosed his hold, and the poor little thing fell to the ground. I began mechanicallv to descend, but did not daro to look at what was in all human probability a corpse. And presently I could not look, for the exigencies of my own position demanded my everv thought Tuc bear above was descending with huge strides and angry growls, and another below? a great black monster, ot whose presence in the lnclosure I had not been aware, was shambling along to the support of his comrade, and hau almost reached the pole. The fix was terrible, but it larted but an instant; for the keeper now made his appear ance, and with a few hearty wallops sent the black bear to tho right about, while my pur suer stopped short with a terrible growl. "What are you doing there?cried the keeper, as I staggered upon tho ground. "I must give you up to the police for a lunatic!" "Never mind me," said I faintly, ' look to the child, for I daro not." "The child! What child?" "Are you blind? There!" and I forced my eyes upon the hideous spectacle. The creature's head was off! It was wax! I hardly know how I got over theinclosure. A sound of laughter was in my brain, as if I was made ot ears, and every ear was ringing its loudest. The nursotuuid enjoyed the ad venture more than anybody, but the little girl in her arms clutched at me furiously, as it" charging me with the murder of her doll; and was not pacified till the fragment* of that sick ening baby were handed to her over my shoul der. I darted away; and it was high time to do so, for all the company in the gardens were rushing to the si*>t. The fair cause of the miscjiief was standing a little way off, leaning on the arm of a tail, noble-looking man with moustaches ten times as big as mine. She seemed choking between recent alarm and present mirth, and as 1 passed, 44 Sir," said she, with swelling cheek'1 and unsteady voioe, *4 my husband wishes to thank you for our little girl's doll!" But I was off like a shot without even waiting to touch my hat; and thankful I was to get out of the gate; for many of the spectators, on seeing me run, followed mechanically. It would be vain to attempt to describe my reflections as I sped rapidly along. But in the midst of all. I knew what was before mo? I had an intense consciousness of what was to be done. My resolve was fixed, and I felt an insane joy at the idea that no possible inter vention could prevent me from exccutinir it As soon as I reached home I went straightway to my own room, locked and bolted myself in. eat deliberately down before the glsas, drew forth my razor, and shaved off my moustachts Afhiov. |*^* The Chinese are a queer people to go fn TAatket.

(Translated from the French J The morning was cold and rainy, and seeing before hitn a " chalet,'1 through whose win dows shone a glorious fire, and wh<*e euriotw external stairway descended even to hi* feet, ;is if ooquetlishly inviting hiin to share moun tain hospitality, Dupont did not hesitate to mount to the door; lie found the key in the lock, opened and entered A man wmt seated at a deak with hi* back to the door?at the noise of the opening ho turned his head, and, recognising the intruder, cried : " Ah, it is yon Dupont! we will take a t?rs immediately." It wa* Fvurnier who thus ?poke. "Faith, I am ready." said Dupont. F. took his sword from the corner of the room; they fell into position?they croased weapons. All this passed in a moment?to see, recognize and provoke, and attack each other was ns natural and spontaneous as to breathe. It was only between the pauses that they conversed. 441 thought you were rxupb yod in the inte rior," said Fournier. " The Minister gives mo the fourth divl 9 ? t ? S'.OT. ' "Indeed, how fortunate' I command the cavalry there. So you have just arrived ?" *'This instant.'' "And thought of me the first thing?how amiable you aro!" "No, really. I did not know vou were here ; seeing a fire through these window*, iw I was about to pass. I slopped to warm myself." '? This cxercUe will warm you sufficiently.'* The tight b?came fiercer?i uuruier haianled a pan, which Dupont taking advantage of, pushed him so vigorously that he was forced to give back step ly step. Dupont advanced steadily within distance, crying : "Aha! You rao! You run'" "Not at all. I only retreat. Do you think I am going to let you spit me like a sparrow." " Tne room is small, I ahall drive yoa to the wall!" "We shall w!" "See then!" and as Dupont said this, he pressed Fournier literally into the corner, and his sword piercing the muscles of F.'s neck, pinned him to the wooden wall like a family portrait badly hung. 44 The devil!" ened the spitted general. '? You did not expect this said Dupont. " On the contrary, it is you whu do not ex* poet what will happen." 44 Indee<l, what is about to happen, then'" " Why, the moment you draw out your sword, I shall thrust rniuc into your stomach, and you will fall." " Tnie," replied Dupont, pressing his sword with great force into the logs of the cottage wall. " Well, what the devil are you piercing the wall for ?" "I am taking precaution again?! your lunge in mv stomach. " l ou cannot avoid it, the moment you with draw you die!'' 441 shall not withdraw till you throw down your sword." 44 It i* impossible for you to keen your arm thus strained for ten minute*, It luust drop, and you receive my thrust." 41 Vou are unreasonable, your blood is flow ing. iu ten minutes your tyes will close." 4' We shall see." 44 Very well. I am not impatient " 44 Nor I. We will abide the result "* This contest would probably have been pro longed to a fatal termination, had not the noise of their dispute at length been heard by soma officers in another part of the houae. who, coming hastily nnon the scene, separated with much difficulty tne obstinate combatants. When parted, they each claimed the vic tory. and finally demanded, with great gravi ty. to be replaced exactly as they were when separated, Dupont promising to refix his sword through Founder's throat without in creasing the wound. They were finally obliged to foroe the latter to bod and the former out of the chalet. Kbmarkablb Escapi pbom Dbattt?We have been furnished with the particulars of an exciting scene whioh transpired in the town ship of Columbia. Lorain county, on Saturday, the 90th ult , which should operate a* a cau tion against descending into wells. A lad about fifteen, named Jarvis Noble, do* s?-cndod iuto the well of his grand-father. Wm. E. Smith, to recover a bucket which had falleiu and when part of the way down he reached tho noxious gas, and instantly fell to the bottom, where wore four feet of water. An alarm was given by two lade who were watch ing Jarvis, over the curb, drew the family from the supper table Ou seeing the dyiu? condi tion of tho boy, his uncle, W. A. iMnith, en tered tho well, being letdown by the windlass, and found Jarvis in an upright potation loan ing against the wall, with hi* head and shoul ders out of the water, but in a senseless con dition. The air immediately affected Mr Smith so that he could render no aid, and called to be drawn out, which wu done, he not being able to stand when he reached the top. Calvin Smith, a brother of Wm A., in the excitement of the momer.t. then went into the well without any rope, but bad got down but a few feet, when inhaling the gas he fell to the bottom. The fHther, Mr Wm E Smith, then entered tho well to re*ue his son and grand-son, being let down by a rope tied be neath his arms The curb was knocked away to give the rope length enough to enable Mr. S. to reach the two bodies, and the father suc ceeded in getting an extra rope around his Hon Calvin, out could not tie it neforo the gas overeaine him, and the three seemod dvTt,g together. Those above?for Mr Thomas Pea chey, William Nioob? and other neighbors, had rallied?balled to the elder Mr Smith, but he was speechless; and drawing up the rope which held him, they raised the father and the sen together?the grasp of the former upon the rope passed around the latter was a death clutch?but before getting to the mouth of the well, the rope slipped through the hands of the father, and Calvin fell heavily back into the water, and the father whi drawn out senseless, yet alive. Then William A. Smith, having recovered from the effects of his first descent, went down a second time, having a rope fattened to his bodv, and was enabled to past another around his brother Calvin At thin time, Jarv is bad been in the well an half hour, and as the rope was passed around Calvin, from some cause?probably the agita tion of the water partially lifted the noxious gas from iU surface?J arris revived sufficient iy to make one struggle for life, and climbing up Calvin's back, got hold of the rope, and the threo were drawn upward. When half way up. and about twelve feet from the mouth, Mr Thomas Peachy was let down by a rope, and sucoeeded in fastening another rope round the lad Jarvis, and all were final ly, one by one. drawn (rvm the well. We are giad to know that the four who suffered from the gas are all recovering. We suppoee the agitation of the water prevented a total ex tinction of life. It is a fact worthy of note, that the young man, Jarvis Noble, entered the well about two weeks since and thorough ly cleaned it. The extinguishment of a light ed candle, or torch, or any other flame, is a sure indicator of the presence of carbonic acid gas. ?CImxlaiui Herald.
