Id looking over Dumas' Thousand and One Phantom ? a few evening* ?ince, we came acroea Ihe following description of a scene which would have made glaa the heart of anj lover of the exciting national pastime of old Spain. It seems that Father Polypus, while on a hunting excursion in India, had the good fortune to kill a wild boar. He, therefore, thought it would be the simplest thing in the world to shoot a tiger, a rhinoceros, or an ele phant Let us see how be succeeded : I once more resumed my march through the forest, desiring nothing better than to engarge in a struggle for life or death with all the monsters in the island I was consequently too eager to remark that I was gradually wan daring fr< m'the butting party. They had told me that the road went up for about two hour* in a.cent; and in less than an hour I found myself going down. Suddenly, at a distance of a few yards from ma, 1 heard a terrible bellowing. I turned u> the siie whence the noiee proceeded and there stood a buffalo Oh ! that was a fine piece of game for the sportsman Nevertheless, as my gun shook a little?I don't know?between my hands, I steadied it against a branch of the tree, and pulled the trigger. Scarcely had I den) so, when I saw two red flaming eyes coming to wards me, whilst the furious beaat tore up the roil with his muxile as a plough divides it into furrows I let go my second shot; but iastead of slackening his pace, my second aim seined to quicken it I had only time enough left to seize hold of a branch of the tree under which I was stand ing, and to swing myself to it: and then climb to the upper branches But when I got there I was far from being quit of my buffalo; for. not being alio to follow me up the tree, he very wisely betook himself to guard the trunk of it. During the first ten minutes, I said to him : You may go round and round, my man; I don't care a fig for you, depend upon it. But the next tea minutes I beg-in to see that it was a more serious matter than 1 at first imagined. When I had been i?er:hed thare an hour, I understood, by the quiet composure with which he paced round the tree, that he was resolved to continue to bo my keeper until he could became my executioner Occasionally he raised his head up, md looked at me with gory eyes, and bellowing iu a threatening manner ; then he would nibble the gr^ss that grew round the tree, a* if to say : You see, I have here all I require?grass to eat, the morning and evening dew to slake thirst; whilst you, as you are a carniverou^ animal, and unaccustomed to feed on verdure, you will be forced te come down from your shelter; and whenever you do, it will be all up with you. fortunately, Father Polypus is a daring blade, who is not likely to go to sleep in such an emergency. I said to myself: Polypus, my friend, the longer you wait the weaker you will beoome. Allow your buffalo an hoar to sheer eff, and if within that hour he is not not gone, why then we shall see. I looked at my watoh?it was 11 o'clock. Good, said I; at twelve o'clock we shall coiae to a reckoning As I had suspected, the buffalo instead of leaving the tree, continued to keep watch, raising his nose from time to time upward, and bellowing occasionally with all his might As lor me, every ten minutes I looked at my wutoh atid draub a eip vut uf B?y A f the fiftieth minute, I said to him: Mind my worthy friend, you have only ten minutes left; and if, in ten minutes mora, you have not taken yourself off, we will go away to gether. 13ut at the fifty-ninth minute, in stead of making off, he lay down, stretching his bead towards the foot of the tree, dilating bis nostrils and glancing at me with an angry look, which seemed to say : Oh, we bare yet time enough before us Don t be unea.*y. But 1 bad determined otherwise. At the sixtieth minhte, I swallowed all the rum i had left?a good pull, too I took my cutlass between my teeth, and, calculating the ground, contrived to fall just a yard buhind bis tail, which I seised with my left hand rs I bad seen the Spanish torreros do at Cadit and Kio Janeiro. Tnough the buffalo was very nimble, 1 was quite as much so, and when he started up i clung to his tail. He rolled himself over two cr three times, and as he did it, 1 rolled his tail as often round my left arm. Then, see ing that whilst I remained thus screwed to his hams, he could not spike me with hie horns, I began to recover from my alarm, whilst he kept bellowing with all his might? though in truth it was from anger that he did it Wait', wait! said I to him. So you bellow from anger, my friend, I will make you bellow directly with pain, that I will. Then, taking out my knife, I plunged it into his belly. Ah ! ihis time, indeed, I had hit him in his tender part, it appeared ; for he shot up like a careering horse, and sprang forward with so unexpected a sbock that my arm was near ly torn away j but I hsld hard. I let him go, i and slash ! sla*h ! I riddled him with stabs. That was a race I never wish you to run your selves, gentlemen ! It lasted a quarter of an hour, and I was carried six miles through the bushes, over brooks, marshes, and rivulet*; it was like being fastened to a locomotive en gine. And still I kept digging my cutlas into him. Oh, the wretch! oh the r%acal! oh the villain! Wait a bit, wait a bit! And now it was not fury ; it was rage?it was madness he felt. And away he scampered up to the top of a steep rock, and loapt over into the yawn ? jug t/ulf. Cut X hftd seen the trick, <md let go his tail at the time. I was left behind on th? peak, whilst he rolled down, dowD, to the bottom. . I looked over the rock, ard saw the buffalo lying dead in the gulf. As for me, I must not mince the matter, I was almost as bad: I was torn, broken, pounded, and covered witu blood ; but still none of my bones were bro I eot up as well as I could, cut off a branch to support me, and went towards a hrook which I perceived glimmering through the trees.

On Saturday Mr Dean pre sented himself and said hia intended bride, who was engigsd as servant in a gentleman's family close by, had been unable to perfect her arrangements, and it was neoeasary to postpone the marriage until the enauing Tues day To this Mr fl agreed, appointing the time of day for tbe bridal party to call. Tne? day came and the minister held himself in readiness to perform tbe ceremony, bat he waited and they did not appear.
