In the Principality of Hohenlohe, Lauiren burg, i.? a village called Ragenbach, where about twenty year* ago the Mowing heart rending but heroic event took place One af ternoon in the early spring or autumn, my kind informant did not exactly know which in the tavern-room of Rsgenbacb, several men and women having assembled from the vil lage, sat at their ease, none anticipating what would happen on that eventful day The smith formed one of the merry company, a strong, vigorous man, with a resolute counte nance and daring mein, but also with such a good natured smile upon his lips that every ono who saw him admired him Every evil disposed person shunned him, for the valiant smith would allow nothing wrong in bis pres ence. and it was not advisable to have any thing to do with him except in a proper man ner. His arms were like oars of iron, and his fists like forge hammers, so that few could equal bis strength of body. Ihe brave smith sat near the door chatting with one of his neighbors, I know not what; all at once the door sprurg open, and a large dog came staggering into the room, a great, strung, powerful beast, with a ferocious, fright ful aspect, his head was hanging down and his eyes bloodshot, his red colored tongue h inging balf-way out of his mouth, and his t;?il dropped between his legs. Thus the fe rocious beast entered the room, out of which there was no escape but by one door. Scarce ly had the smith's neighbor, who was bath keeper of the place, seen the animal, when he became deathly pale, sprang up and exclaim ed with a horrid voice, ''Good Heavens, the dog is mad !" Then rose an outcry ' The room was full of men and women, and the foamiug beast stood before the only entrance ; no one could leave without pissing him. He snapped sav agely right aud left, and no one could pan him without being bitten This increased the horrible confusion. All sprang up and shrank from the furious dog with agonising counte nances Who should deliver them from hiui ? The emith also stood among them, an J as he f iw the anguish of the neople, it flashed across his mind how many of nis happy and content ed neighbors would be made miserable by a mad dog. nnd he formed a resolution, the like of which is scarcely to be found in the history of the human race for high-minded r.ess and nobleness. Certainly hit brown cheek paled a little, but his eyes sparkled with divine fire, and an elevated retolution shone from the smooth brow of the simple minded man "Back all!" thundered he with bis deep strong voice. 44 Let no one stir, for no one can vanquish the beast but I. One victim must full in order to save all. and I will be that victim, I will hold the brute, and whilst I do so, make your escape " The smith had scarcely spoken these words, when the dog started to wards the shrieking people. Hut he went not far 44 With God's help !" cried the smith, and he ru?hed upon the foaming beast, seized him with an iron grasp, and daahed him to the door. Oh, what a terrible struggle followci ' The dog bit furiously upon every side in a most frightful manner, liis long teeth tore the arms and thighs of the heroic smith, but he would not let him loose Regardless alike of (he exces-ive pain and the horrible death which must ensue, he held down with an iron grasp the snapping biting, howling brute un til all bad escaped ! ? till all, all were rescued and in safety. He then flung the half atrangied beast from him against the wall,,and dripping with blood and venomous foam, he left the room, locking the door after him Some per sons shot the dog through the windows Hut oh ! merciful God, what will become of the brave, unfortunate smith ? Weeping and lamenting, the people sur round him. who had saved their lives at the expense of his own 44 He quiet, my friends, do not weep for me,"' be said, " one must die in order to save the others. Do not thank me. for I have only performed my duty. When I nm dead think of me with love, and now prav for me that God will not let me suffer l ing .or too much. I will take care that no further mischief shall occur through me. for I must certainly beoome mad. He weiit straight to Lis workshop, and selected a strong chain, the heaviest and firmest from his whole stock lie then, with his own hands, welded it upon his own limbs and around the anvil so firmly that no power on oarth could break it 44 Tbere," ??aid he. "its done," aftor silently and sol emnly completing the work. 44 Now you arc secure, and inoffensive, so long as I live, bring me my food. The rest I leave to God : into his hands I commend my spirit." Nothing could save the brave smith, neither tears, la^ mentations and prayers Madnoss seized him, and after nine days he died ?but truly, he died only to awake to a more beautiful and glorious life at the right hand of God He died, but his memory will live from genera tion to generation, and will be venerated to the end of time. Search history through, and jou will find no action more glorious and sublime than the deed of this simple minded man, the smith < f Ragenbach It is easy for noble minds to die liko Winkelreid or Martius Curtiun, the high spirited Roman youth?but to go to the sacii fice with the certainty of death. and moreover, being obliged to wait a death so awful, during long fearful hour- and days?that is to die not once but a thousand times. And such a death was that of the smith of Ragenbach Such a sacrifice the smith of Rugenbach made in order to save his neighbors. May the mem ory ever be sacred ?Practical Christian Bayfield, Wisconsin As this prominent point seems to be attract ing the attention of capitali?t^, we copy the following extract from a recent article in the Pioneer and Democrat published at Sf Paul, Minnesota Territory, which appears to have been the impression made upon the edi tor of that paper from a recent trip made along the shores of Lake Superior and the country bacK of it: 4' On the main land, opposite La Pointi, is located the town of Bayfield, named after a British naval officer who mado the first eom plete survey of Lake Superior This point was platted as a town in May or June, of the present year, and has grown with aniasing rapidity since. When we were there, fr >m twenty to twenty-five building* of a good jlass were erected, while others were in process of building. Bayfield bids fair to become a very prominent commercial point It is the east ern terminus of the proposed railroad to run from the interior of Wisconsin to the lake, by the way of the St. Croix valley, for the con struction of which a heavy grant was made by Congress at its last session. Its original proprietor was the Hon H M Rice, who has since associated with him several gentlemen of wealth and energy. During the summer a wagon road has been made from Bayfield, connecting with the roads threading the St Croix valley, and furnishing the only wagon road now open from St Paul to Lake Supe rior. Among the important improvements now in progress, is a steam saw-mill, which is now in operation, and when completed, will cost from fifteen to twenty thousand dollars, and and which will prove of great advantage to that point and the adjoiningsastion, inasmuch as the greater part ot the lumber used during the present season has been brought there from Detroit. A hotel is also under contract to be built this fall, at a cost of eight thou sand dollars. The natural advantages of Bay field, whioh are great, it will thus be seen, are being developed in the most ripil anw substantial manner, by it* energttin propt'e tors. Another year will place thi* p'?int among the most flourishing on the soatii -bore of Lake Superior " THE WEEKLY STAR.

August 25, 1356. A Commercial Experiment. (From the Europeaa Time*, September t?.J A great and original experimant has been successfully realised during the last few days, which cannot fail to have a considerable in fluence ia the expansion of the trade between Great Britain and tbe Far West of America? an experiment, we do not hesitate to say, only '.nferior to the introduction of steam as a con necting link between Europe and the New World This experiment will save hereafter the transhipment of grain grown in the im mense districts abutting on tbe great Ameri can lakes, by which there will be not only a large saving of expense, but, what is hardly of less importance, the article will be brought to the British market in a much higher st^te of perfection than it has hitherto been The Dean Richmond, a rakish schooner, of 380 tons regi.-ter. is now in the Liverpool docks: her length is Uo feet, beam 26 feet, depth of hold 12 teet. bhe draws nine and a half fee! ot water. This clipper schooner has just com pleted a most successful voyage across tbe At lantic, bringing direct from the port of Chica go, on Lake Michigan, in (ha State of Illinois, without breaking bulk. 40(1 tons of grain, which she has delivered from the ship ? side exac'iy she received it. A direct voyage like ;iiis. which eaves transhipment at Buffalo or New York, must, it is clear, pour into Lag land tbe produce of the northwestern State i of the I nion by way of the St Lawrence at a price which cannot fail to add to the trade und wealth of both countries The rapid rise of Caicago, the port of de parture of the Dean Richmond, is a significant prJof of the teeming agricultural resources of that portion of the United States. lu 1 >32 it contained only 250 inhabitant!; it now oon taing 104 000 Tfte shipments of grain from this place last year aloue amounted to two millions and a fourth of quarters - the largest which has ever been despatched from a single port in any part of the world; while the ex ports of pork were 77,000 barrels, and of bee;~ 56,000 barrels The canal will not at present admit tbe pa^sige of larger vessels, but even as regards this teature the future is hopeful for a moderate expenditure of capital would admit vessels cf three times the tonnage of the Dean Richmond, and with the induce roeuts thus offered there cannot be a doubt that the improvement will be made. In point of time and cheapness this nee route, thus brought into play, will compete very successfully with the New York or the Black Sea routes, by both of which large quan tities of graiu and flour reach this oouatry. The Dean Richmond, we are informed by her owner, bas in*de the entire pastage in sixty Jays, which iucludes 2,500 miles of inland waters; but she had a detention of twelve days in the St Lawrence, whioh is not likely to oocur again. The canal and ship dues are most moderate ; while there are no port, light or pilotage dues on the inland seas of America The number of hands through which the goods pass in the interior transit to New York, lor transhipment across the Atlantic, adds largely to the cast of freight and commission, and to the manifest deterioration of tbe gooo j ?items of expenditure which will be avcldeJ by the direct course which the Dean K'ehmond his traversed The great commercial resu.i waich cannot fail to flow fr0? this nowel ex periment have made tbe Dean Richmond an objcct of coonsiderable interest in the port of Liverpool; bat the tim* is not distant when thia novelty will cease ; for tbe cla-s of vessels whioh will rush into the trade are> eiaot.y those which can be cheaply and readily sup plied. _ SlNttULAR AND INGENIOUS DlSCOVEBV ?
