The dog looked into his master s face wag ging his tail, but never said a word, and pur mied his way toward the door; and as he could not well open it himself. Miss Patty got up and oj?ened it for him. Tbo Colonel seemed perfect ly satisfied, and wm composing himself for another nap, when the loud and cheerful bark ing of the dog announced the approach of some 1 one. and roused him from his lethargy.

[From the Albany Statesman.] The excitement manifested by all classes of our citizen* as to the result of the race of one hundred ml lew, and which seemed to pervade the entire community, Increased toward night, and State street wai thronged with people until long after sundown AU kind of rumors were put in circu lation, and from their contradictory character it was Impossible to arrive at any satisfactory con clusion. The match wai made several weeks since be tween Andrew Dalton and Ssmuel H. Taylor for 92,500. Mr. Dalton to use his own horse and Tay lor to hare the privilege of selecting any horse he should see At. Mr. T., oxerrising Theprivilege thus conceded to him, selected a horse owned by Hon. Andrew Sheehan, one of the representatives from New York in the present Assembly, and in due time both horse* were put in training for the contest. . Mr. Dalton's horse is between nine and ten years of age, and Is valuable on account of his speed, hnving shown 2.42 on the track. He is from good stock, and is in every reaped a One ani mal. The Taylor horse is seven years of age and comes from blood stock, being sired by Eclipse from a Messenger mare. He was bred in West chester country, where his then owner used bini to draw a coal cart, and kept him at snch ser vice until he was purchased by Mr. Sheehan, when, for the first time, he was driven to har ness. His greatest speed is three minutes. The horses started from Oallup's hotel. Wash ington street, yesterday morning at 5 o'clock, ac cording to the'judge's time. The start was good, both horses coming up at the word nearly side by side. After leaving the pavement they increased their speed, the horses vary much animated a desire to travel. At fij* o'clock they passed through Schenectady. 15 miles from this city. Amsterdam. HO miles from the i city, was passed at 9 o'clock and 20 minutes. | Fonda. 43 inilee from this city, was passed at 10 o'clock, both horses in excellent condition, and neither appearing tired from the task they had already accomplished. Fort Plain, 60 miles from this city was reached at 10 o'clock and 45 min utes, the horses having traveled full 10 mile* per hour up to this point. Little Falls. 73 miles from this city, was passed at 12 o'clock, and Herkimer, "0 miles from this city, at 13 o'clock and 50 min utes. The horses at this time, although they showed I signs of being somawh.^t tired, were to all np- ' pearance in good condition to accomplish the re maining twenty miles, and passed Illion, miles from this city, at 1 o'clock and ten minutes. **oon after leaving this place the Dalton horse be gan to flag, and his driver noticing it, concluded to stay his progress, and on reaching Frankfort, 97 miles from this city, stopped and put his horse in the stable, where he was given every attention that could possibly be rendered. Mr. Taylor upon observing that Mr. Dalton had 1 withdrawn, checked the speed of his horse, put on his blankets and walked alonir the road a ais- j tance of eleven mile*, until reaching the outskirts j of Utica, when he received information that Mr. < Dalton's horse, being much refreshed, had been ' put upon the road, and was coining along at a | good pace. The blankets were removed from the i Taylor horse, and having been well rested he re- I ceived tho word with spirit and started off at a rapid pace, panning through Utica at 4 o'clock ! and forty-five minutes, about two miles ahead of | the Dalton house, and reached Whitesboro' at 5 ] o'clock and twenty minutes, having accomplish- i ed the entire distance of one hundred miles in J twelve hours and twenty-two minutes! After i having walked eleven miles of the distance ! The | Dalton horse before reaching Whitesboro' was ' checked and walked nearly a mile. Both horses on reaching Whitesboro' were ! properly cared for, and were in good condition, ' save being tired. They gave no indication of ' having sustained any ln]uries from the great task they had accomplished, and we are assured by their owners, are held as more valuable to-day ! than when they started upon the race. The Tay lor horse will probably reach this city to-morrow Utica, and although we have no positive in formation as to the Dalton horse, we presume he will come at the same time, when an opportunity will b? afforded our citizens to take "a sight" at them. As an evidence of the great endurance of the Taylor horse, we may state that the last half niile of the race was trotted in two minute?. and be tween Fort Plain and Herkimer, 12^ miles were trotted inside of an hour. The roadi were in very bad condition, and in some places were obstructed by heavy snow drifts. J The horses carried about 3u0 pounds each, and we i are assured by one of the judges who accompanied ! them that during the entire distance neither of the ! horses were touched with a whip. Aj>arty accompanying them had made arrange ments for relays, so as to travel the distance with ' four horse*, and although they were as good as J could be found, not one of them could keep up ' with the contestants for the 25 miles. Tne horses were watered at several points along the road, as j thf drivers deemed it advisable, and at no time ] between this city and Herkimer were over 30U i iards apart. Mr. Taylor never got out of his sul y between this city and Whitesboro, and on i reaching the end of the journey, remirkwl that he felt '? in condition to walk .30 miles." At all points along the route the greatest excite ment was manifest. Crowds of men, women, j and children were on the road, and seemed to partake of the interest which the contest had cre ated. At Utica, thousands of people had assom blod in the streets through which the horses were to pass, and wo are informed by a gentleman from that city he has never seen anything to equal it. So at Whitesboro'; it appeared as though the whole country around had "come to town" to see the horses, and be present at the termination of tho race. The statement that there was an objection of fered the giving up of the stakes, i* without f>undation, as Mr. Dalton conceded that he had lost the race, and the winning party was entitleu to the money. This is the greatest race on record, nothing of the kind ever having been attempted before?and the speed shown by the horse? surprises every body. Kvea in the hundred mile races over* a f course, the time has not been equalled, and had the same speed been kept up to the end of the I journey as was shown to Herkimer, the hundred miles would have been trotted In a little over nine hours. A Good 'U*.?A "Green Mountain" (so called 1 because the mountains, and not the boys, are treen) tells the following spicy anecdote,"which ! e says is authentic, ana which we do not rc- ' member to have seen in print Roswrll F , a Vermont lawyer of distinguished ability, now re siding at St. Louis, and in the first rank of the 1 bar of Missouri, had brought a suit in court which was really so plain a case for the plaintiff that, having submitted the papers and other proofs to the court, he felt that his client's Interest really required no more, and he accordingly sat down without making the customary opening address tothejury. But the defendant's counsel, more ambitious of rhetorical display, and probably conscious that the defence required the best abll itios. rose and made a long harangue cbarac- t teriznd by an immense flood of ponifious words (as was his custom) but destitute of even an at- [ t*mpt at logic or reasoning of any kind. When he had done, the plaintiff's counsel, who was ex p^-ted to make an elaborate speech in reply, rose and merely said?" May it please the court and I gentlemen of the jury?-in this case I shall follow the example of the counsel for the defence, and | submit the ca*e without argument!" Si* William Do*?This eccentric baronet f , has recently undergone an examination in bank- j ruptcy at KMinburg. His statement may be sum med up in a few words. His farther died in Itt27 when he was two years old. On coming of age I his estate was worth ?3,000 (about 819,600) per I annum He "let things slide." and In 1H46-'7 the estate was sold for Xb3,000. After this period he 5 Ives a confused statement, in which he seems to ave signed deeds for any body who wanUnl on?. and finally he found himself cleaned out. During two different periods of three years each he has supported himself as an actor in Canada and America, and was at one time in jail in New , Y ork city for nine weeks. He played two or three engagements in Buffalo. At the conclusion of the examination, Mr. Fraser, the counsel for 1 the creditors, stated that, so far as he saw, Sir Wm. Don was perfectly solvent, and indeed worth I ?30,000. 1 The Nkwsfapi* Bcsixbss.?There isa news I paper agency (for the sale of newspapers) in New l York city which.
