Exi-iTma Rack ?Tuesday afternoon an ex. citing foot race came off between one of W M Judd's clerks and a young girl about 14 years oil. The girl had the start, bat was burdened with u piece of giij^ham, which gave the boy the advantage. The girl, per ceiving this, threw the goods into the gangway adjoining Aaron Clapp s store, and brought the contestants upon a more equal footing The boy cow made a desperate effirt and gained rapidly upon the girl, overtaking her in Pratt street, lie politely beggel the privi lege of escorting her back to the starting place ; and although she said No?he sup posing that, like many an other maiden, "No' meant "Yes"?took her at ber word and es corted her back He then very ungallantly set for officer Nott, who led the girl to Squire Mann's office, aft?r whieb the mother c?mc and all parties left to settle the matter, if possible, without public exposure; and thit is the reason we say nothing about the etccur rcnce. Another exciting race occurred about the same time between two Irish girls and a clerk in J H Hubbard's store The stake was a package of whalebone The girls were soon overtaken and esoortad back to the store, but were released in consideration of the very great temptation on beholding the much c ivc ted whalebone?Hartfird C<mrunt.
