Although a veteran of the war of 1S12, and one of its bravest. Gen. Coombs still retains the sprightliMM of youth; his head ia erect, his back straight as a pine tree, his eye bright as a gaine-^ock's, and his laugh as cheerful as the carol of a bird in nesting-time. All these quali ties are doubtless owing to an internal well spring of wit and htnnor. as certain to keep the outer man fresh and verdurous ;is the spray of a fountain will keep its borders in perpetual bloom. One day the General wajj traveling in a stage coach with one of those unhuppv phi losophers who bestow more attention npon the lumps on their skulls than on the linings there of. yclept phrenologist." Of course, everybody in the stage was thoroughly bored by this pro fessor. until the General drew hiiu into an un lucky ambuscade. "Sir,"' said Leslie, '? I used to bo of opinion that this science was neither correct, nor founded upon proper grounds, al though I ha?l never given the subject the atten- j tion I now tind it merits; but I am oonvinced, | from the very able discourse you havo given us, that your theory is a just one, and of no little consequence when we need to make an estimate of the characters and disposition? of men. But, although I had no great faith in it, yet I was sometimes struck with a resemblance in its leading features to a science with which I am familiar, and by which I am in a great measure guided in my intercourse with stringers'' ? I presume." interrupted the professor.with a smile of satisfaction, " you allude to physiog nomy?" " No, sir,'' replied the General, 41 my science is dogology." " lv?g"l"gy'" echoed the professor, aghast. Dogology." said the General, with a win ning ?mile. '* I can always tell, sir, by the ap pearance of a dog, what aort of a man his mas ter is." "Sir." replied the phrenologist, drawing himself ?p stiffly. 441 sea yonr intention ia to cast ridicule upon my science." 4'_ Fardon me," said the General, with a most amiable expression of countenance. " 1 will convince you to the contrary. At the next town, wher?? we stop top dinner, and which I have never visited before, I will tell yon from the dogs in the street what sort of men their owners are; and, if I fail to d> so. I will forfeit drinks lor tho whole stage-load of passengers." '? *i>h. yes. that you could readily make up a" fanciful theory, I am convinced, and draw an imaginary character tor that of the master of every dog. I have tolerable good reasons for be lieving; but how a in I to tell whether yon are correct <* not. I am a stranger here as*well as<* yourself, sai l the wary professor. "We will leave the decision to the landlord of the tavern where we su>p. IIo must know every person in the place, ' replied the Gen eral. ? ?? Agreed, said the phrenologist, winking at the other pa-^engers, and regaining his self satisfied air ; " I agree to that, and will forfeit the drinks if tho landlord s account tallies with your descriptions." On arriving at the tavern, dinner was ?peed ily discussed. the passengers being anxious to enjoy the exhibition of this novel science. The General beckoned tho landlord out of the bar room This drew all the idlers with him. *> what with them and the passcnger3 there was a tolerably large group in front of the tavern, an l of course this attracted other i<ersons to see what waa going on, so that by the time the landlord had been made acquainted with hts duties as arbiter, quite a respectable audience was collected?in numbers, at least. " The owner of that dog." said the General as a fine pjiuter* with a steel chain collar around his neck, passed, '* is a gentleman of education and property He lives well. dre*M*? well; has a fine hv>uso. (the best house in town, quoth the l;?ndl?>rd.j i> fond of society, a sportsman, (that he is.) is generally popular and on good terms with his neighbors. How is that, landlord ?" 4k True as a die." said the landlord; ' the very man.** Just then a little wiry Scotch terrier darted from under a ganien g ite opposite, and rushed up street after a flock of chickens. 4 The owner of ihat dog. said the speaker, 44 is a boy, abont fourteeti or fifteen years of age. A sly little rogue, always about Some mischief; he is a spoiled child; i*rhaps the only one; he and tne dog are constant companions, and neither' is happy unless engaged in some scrape ; and tne neighborhood is, no doubt, in trouble all the time witu their pranks." "Bt jolly! ' nid the landlord. 44 there'* something in this here dogology. That boy ia ju>t such a boy as you say he is, stranger!" " The owner of that dog," continued the General, as a pug-nosed bull dog, with great wrinkles on his cheeks, short, belligerent ears, heavy, tai -k eyes, broad chest, bandy forelegs, ard a tail that looked a* if it had been gnawed off. made its appearance, " is an uneducated man In disposition he is suspicious and ob stinate, *ery wrong-headed, not likely to have many friends?if any, men like himself; not apt to take much interest iii public affairs: 1 close in his dealings, and not given to Ulk much." By thundor!" aaid the landlord, -'you've got him again. The owner of that bull dog ia a Dut-n butcher He don't ulk, for he can't speak English good: he don't take no interest ? in public maUers. cau^e he can't vote; and Imj .-i obstinate as a mule, as I know, for he al ways gets more p mills of meat on his bill than t .ere is^in his weight, and he won't take off a cent neither." "That dog,; said General Leslie, elevating his voice, for he was very much eia'ed with his euccess to far. and he saw a capital specimen of the bull-terrier coming up the mad?a union aa<J ct,,jaiu?-nc?vy headed, lank bodied, broad-breasted, eyes like coals of fire ear. and tail cropped for rough-and-tumble fighting??' that dog, gentleman, is owned by a man wno is probably the worst man in this t wn. if not in the State of Kentucky. He is destitute of honor and principle, and would not .^?tate to take the life of any man for the sake of a few dollars.' Here he was interrupted by a voice in the crowd : *? Look here, stranger, you're making a little too free with my character, by Gari! That dog belong* to me'" and ths speaker pushed his way through the crowd, and confronted the dogologut. My friend,' 3aid the General, calmly, poshing back the hair from his high forehead. rc.'doj"'* *?"*?-?*"? <"?< ?<"? "yl'i*1?,he "i hi*,"' diiJ! I ^ the General, 44 I've lost the f ?

Kentucky is fatuous for its sharp shooters and shrewd hunters, and is also somewhat n<?te<l for its great men. but it would also appear that her fair daughters are determined to be not less known to faino or more backward iu ' doing the State some scrvicc," though in a somewhat different direction. If the men of Kentucky have been celebrated as hunter of wild animals and other game, the girls may henceforth be fa mous as hunters of wild men, or young gentle men who arc over fearful of the arrows of Cu pid. The following advertisement, which we cut from the Newport (Ky.) Daily News, will explain our meaning. NEWS FOR THOSE I LIKE. After mature deliberation.

Sixerlar Accident !?Talinjout a Man'# liitun, Fixing ami Replacing It.?The llar risburg Telegraph says that on Wednesday night last, a canal boatman named Tomach, a resident of L?yalsock, Pa., while lying asleep on the deck of his boat, came into collision with a bridge near Highspire. whieh struck him on the back part of the head, knocking therefrom the perietal bone, which was found shortly after as free from extraneous substance as if it had been extracted by the hands of a dumoiistator of nnatumy The wounded man was of course instantly aroused by the concussion, and what is most remarkable, rose to his feet, perfectly unconscious of the extent of the injuries he had received by the collision. The slight pain in the l>*ck of his head gave biin no trouble what ever, it was only after he had dressed himself, and one of his comrades had found the bone on deck, that he was made aware of the unfortu nate mutilation of his caput. After this discovery, the wounded man was taken to Highspire, where Dr. Rutherford, of our city, was summoned, who, after washing the man s brain, and replacing it, and arranging the splinters of the adjacent parts of the skull in a proper manner, informed him that was all he could do for him. With this the wounded man departed, in a perfectly rational state, to his home at Loyalsock. We doubt if the expe rience of any member of the medical profession can show u similar case to the above.?Efmira dmxftts. ? . ^ I A I.EFT-M* Jf D Cohplimmt ?At the ln> cele bration in Keoknk.
