A very ourious peculiarity about him is, that at the very last he will not make an attack where he sees any thing to produce the suspi cion of a trap A h'>p?? belonging to Captain Ciidrington ran away, but was slapped by the bridls catching a stump, lie remained a pris oner during twe days, and when he was found the whole space around was marked by the footprints of lions, which had evidently been afraid to attack the haltered horso fn>m tbe fear that the whole thing was a snare. It is a common belief (s*y< Dr. L ) that tho lion when be has tasted human floah prefers it to ai.y other, hut the real state of the ease u th :t a man eat^r is always an old li n. wh.i h.-u grown too infirm to catch game. he res->rt* to villages for the sake of the go its. and it' a wo mau or ehild happens to get out they fall a prey lot.

The subjoined '? charge " whs not written for the present time, a faot which ia evident from that other faot that we cat it from an old file of the Lancaster Intelligencer, into which it was copied from the London Punch about fifteen years ago. Notwithstanding the antiquity of the document, we oonaider it, in some respects, a '? model ' charge?it, at leant, possessing the merit of leaving the jnry unbiased in their de liberations upon a verdict: (riMtlemtn of the Jury: You are sworn in all cases to decide according to the evidence; at the name time, if you have any doubt, yon are bound to give the prisoner the benefit of it. Suppose you have to pronounce on the guilt or innocenco of a gentleman neensed of felony. ^"U wili naturally doubt whether any gentle man would commit such offenccs?accordingly, however strong may be the testimony against him, yon will, perhaps, acquit him. The evi dence nf your own senses is. at least, as credi ble as that of tho witnesses; if, therefore, your oyesight convincc you that the prisoner ie a well-dressed person, you have a right to pre sume his respectability; and it is for you to say whether a respeetablo person would bo likely to be guilty of the crimes imputed to him. In like manner, when you sec a shabby-looking fellow in the dock, charged, for example, with sheep-.?dealing, the decision rests with vou, first, whether or not that individual is a ragamuffin, im J. secondly, how far it is probable that a man of that description won Id steal sheep. Of coupe, a* ha<? been before said, you will alwavs be gui ded by tho evidence; but. then, whether tho evidence is trustworthy or not. is a matter for your private consideration. You may bolieve it if you choose, or you may disbelieve it ; and whether, gentlemen of the jury, you will l>e lieve it or disbeliovo ii. will depend on the con stitution of your minds. If your minds are so constituted that you wish to find tho prisoner guilty, perhaps you will believe it; if they happen to ho so constituted that you dtwiro to find him not guilty, why then, very likely, you wiil disbelieve it. ^ ou are to free your minds from passion and prejudice if you ean. and, in fh?t case, your judgment will l>c unbiased ; but if you cannot, you will return a verdict accor- I dingly. It is not, strictly speaking, for you to consider what will be the effect of your verdict; hut if such a consideration should occur to you, and you eannot help attending to it, that ver dict will be influenced by it to a certain extent. \os are probably aware, that when you retire, you will be locked up until you contrive to agree Yoo may arrive at unanimity by fair discussion, or by some of you starving out the others, or by tossing up ; and your conclusion, by whichever of these processes arrived at. will be more or less in accordance with your oaths. Your verdict may bo right; it is to be hoped it will; it may be wrung; it is to be hoped it will not. At all events, gentlemen of the jury, yoa will come to some conclusion or other ; unless it should so happen that you separated without coming to any. CHEATING THE DEVIL. Squire H, living in the town of A. was a man in easy circumstance*, with every thing enough, in doors and out. In his yard wa? a huge pile ot wood, sawed and split, and sufficient in bulk to keep a doren families through tho winter with enough more where that come from. Across the street from Squire A., lived Mrs. W.. a poor widow woman in straightened cir cumstances. with four mouths to feed and four little bodies to warm besides her own. Squire II. doted on hia big wood pile, and was in the hahit of taking a peep at it through the closed blinds of his window before retiring at night. One right he saw a female hanging around the pile, and opening the di?or partially, to get a better view, saw her stoop, pick up a large armful and start off, Sho had not pro ceeded far, however, when she stopped short, and he overheard tho following ?? I cannot steal?(he eye of (tod is upon me ;" und down went the wood, and she walked off a few steps and stopped again : " I have not a stick of wood in tho house, the weather is bitter cold, and my poor children are freezing. The Squire has enough and will never miss it.'' So say - I :??g. she filled her arms again with the coveted fuwl. Azain she started and again hesitated , . * ' I never before did such a thing, and God forbid I should do it now!" and down went the wood upon tho pile again Hut the thought of her suffering brood bro'ugbt her once more to the pile, and filled her arms the third time with wood Once more she started and aga n turned back?411 will not steal?I will trust in God, and if it is llis will, wc 11 perish together.' So saying she threw down the wood upon the pile, and the Squire saw her enter her dwelling and close the door. He retired to bed, but slumber was slow in vis iting his eyelids He thought of the poor widow and her suffering children, and perhaps when he slept he dreamed of them. Early the noxt forenoon, widow W. was sur prised lo see the Squire s four ox toam. loaded with wood, haul up in front of hor dwelling aud the Squire commence pitching it off " W hat's this, Squire II?* said the astonished and halt frightened woman; "I didn't order that wood, and God knows 1 oan't pay for it " " It s your s, and all paid for, Ma am !" sung out the Squire, tugging away at a big lo*,? ?? ^ ou cheated the devil last night." The poor woman insisted that there must be tome mistake about it. '? I tell you its your s, for cheating the devil last night,' said the Squire, " and there comes a man to ?w it up, split it, and pack it away in your wood-house. The widow began to - smell a rat," and stam mering her thanks to the Sqjiire. retreated into the house. She wanted for no more wood that winter. Tho practice of selling out paupers to the lowest Didder?or rather of putting up at auction the undertaking for their support? still prevails, it seems, in some of tho towns of Maine. The Rural Intelligencer,of Gardiner io that State, calls attention to tho sad case of l'arker Sheldon, a few years ago one ot the most Crouiincnt business men of the State, widely Down and highly respected, several times a member of the Legislature, once a member of the Ex'ieativ* Council, formerly Collector of the 1'ort of Hath, and the first Mayor of Gardine after it became a city. In old age and reduced to second childhood, bis bodily and mental now era exhausted, and his property all gono, no is now a pauper, dependent on a neighboring town and was lately disposed of at auction to the lowest bidder for his support. Fkrrv Fr.i.?The I'eck Slip Co. having re duced their fare to one cent, the South 10th street Company has oome down to half a cent upon-which the Brooklyn Kagle remarks as fol lows : Tho I'eck Slip Ferry will next take pas sengors for nothing. The other ferry will fol low suit and throw in refreshments The I'eck Slip Company, will not be outdone, will giv each passenger a ticket in a lottery scheme with prises varying from an ivory toothpick to a farm in New Jersey. The South 10th street Co., of course, wiil not give in, and will offer some still greater inducement : perhaps make each passenger a present of a house and lot, and {ay a carman to move his furniture into it here's nothing like op osition.?N. Y Unn Vbrv Coxsciextious.?The Norfo'k Ar;us is responsible for tho following : "An intelli gent gentleman of this city, bought a sideboard at a eheritt s sale, and thinking the sum at which the article was knocked down, was seve r >1 dollari less than its value, be expressed dejire to pay the balance or enough to make up the lull value, and he seemed greatly dis tressed about the transaction."
