There ?"Tc nootheroccupied ??claims" within a space ot three miles; and our nearest point of vhtaining -upplies being a day's journey out, one can easily imagine that in our isolated situa tion th-> gain of a comrade wan not a merely nomrial consideration. Tomkia*. the new-comer, or "Lot," a? he ?as familiarjj called, was a character. Origi nally a New rtamp-hire man, and shiftle*. SB - v a .'. generate scion from the thrifty Now t.nglan I -tock can be. he bad emigrated from the "land ot steiMiy habits," first to the west, iikI from thence to our .American "K1 Dorado." Fated to disappoiatment, he had drifted about hither and thither, led by one freak and another, until finally he had settled down in the mines. I.ot was a famous story-teller, abound ing in legendary lore, and rirh in >tore of ipiaint old-time ballads. In the beginning of hi- life with ns. fie might have been often heard hilar iously chanting, in a high-pitched n isal tone : ??The sand with eldi-a dust is thick, II", b>>TS, h<>i I* k iii> lumps as hit as a brii k. ? if CalifornT |oM ' Humorous, rtsy. ?ml with a strong dash of egotism, combiner with insistent good nature and lively credulity?such was Lot. as we first knew h in at the mines. Kventuallv. however, hi? enthusiasm died out; for. as Lot himself feeling! * expressed it: ''The darn thing was e'en-a nswt gin eout!" As 1 Is a vbefore stated, for some reason best known to l.ini-elf. Lot had considered it exjiedi i nt to rem .in Whin.1, at the time his partners abandoned the claim. ??ur explanation of this was. that to his easy disposition it seemed less -lifticnlt to "bear the ills he bad" than to subject liim.^etf to the exertion of seeking those he ??knew not ot." Subsequently. however, con siderable additional light ww thrown upon this subject tine atterroon?it might have been three weeks alter the exodu- ot Lot's partners?one of ;>ur neighbor* engaged in mining three miles Iurther up the gulch, reined into caiug> on bii> way back from the citv. where he had been to deposit his dust in the Miner's bank, ami get out supplies ??Halloo'tleorge!

'?Well, -^tay. ye ain't g?>t nothin* fur me, now. ain't yeV" "No. I gtiesn not." returned the other, with a peculiar twinkle beneath his bushy eyebrows; ?'but thus i? woman an four small children on the way. asking fur just sich a looking teller as yon." Lot's joculantv vanished in an instant, his jaw dropped, and With visible agitation he blurted out :? "Come. naow. none of yer fooliu"! Ye doa't pull that on with me!" " Kool;ng*.' Nary time! It's sober truth." A sick! v |>allor swept over the man's counte nance. ami he seemed to shrink within him>elf until dwarfed much below hie usual diminutive stature. ~ "What? what's that veou say?" be -tammered Wildly. "I say a woman an'four small children ar' renting thi- way, searching for a husband and lather." ?How far behind? gasped the anxious Lot, whose legs were fast getting tremulous under him. "Oh. a matter of three mile, or thereabouts!" ?Mxi with a nod ami knowing glance, and "No further news, boys!" to us, the little mule, an ?wering to the spur of his rider, struck into a brisk gailop. which speedily carried them both out ol sight. There we stood, inquiringly facing Lot. He gulped awhile, but finally out with it:? The fact is boys?I'm married!" And with this lucid eiplanation, L?.t, with ra^id ami -omewhat un.-tead\ step uisapoeared within his cabin. After a few -ecomls. he hastily emerged, bear ing in bir- bands a pack of thumbed ami greasy cards a set of dice, several worn "dime novels,"'* and an old '-Combine Songster." ?I gut*, boys, I shan't need these any longer " he said, flushing painfully?alternately standing on one foot, and then shifting his weight to the other; ' so I thought I'd jist clean Jem eout. Some wimmen folk is pertickerler. ye know." Chris took the articles, and ottered to keep them for him. ? Wal. if ve've a mimi to. I'd be much ob leeged t>> ye. It inought be possible?barely ; .iMsible, ye know?they'd come handy some time." And Lot, his neck just bending to re reive the yoke, looked forward with a dim ex jeetancy to a dim chance of future release. I'.tviT.j the |?or fellow's evident discomfit i re. we tetraiued from joking or questioning an. lraiwttiently awaited those "coming events" which had so unmistakably "cast their .-hadows l?etore." .fu-t at -undown. a twvel train was seen wend in^ its w ay toward the camp, l-ot stood in the ? ?or of bis cabin, while we, drawn together a little in the background, watched for develop ments.

On the enduing morning we were able to ar 1 riv# at a more correct estimate of the new comer, who early introduced heneir to us as ? Lot'e wife. She was of fair complexion. ?hort in stature, and very slim about the waist. Her thin rtaxen hair was drawn smoothly back ? fiom a promimnt forehead, and fastened ink " ght button-like knot at the back of her nock teetlem bine eyee, a sharp nose, thin cheeks! tnd a firm, large month, filled with even, white ieth, completed the list of her personal char rteristica Knergy. dec Moo, bnsinese, was rxsr tten on every lineament of the little woman's roaatenaace?spoke in every restless move of er "lissome" body. In the first three sentences she spoke a con tract was matured, to the elect that we, tur Lnishing the wherewith, should thenceforward look to her to "keep the pot boiling." at the average rate of ??twenty-five cents a bend" per diem. _ . lot's children were mialature reproductions of the mother; and were under a control little abort of automatical.

"Wevsr had mneh opiatoaef doge, any way," tl? distributing our breakfast, she glanced at Lion and the Infant, rolling and gamboling together in the deep. warm sand. "Never could bear one. nntll l.ion there, then only a half-grown pop, *ave<1 my first baby.

Whatever loot's inmost mind or secret repin ing*. hi? outward life boreevidence of a marked revolution towards the aide of fruitful and virtuous it dustry. No more loitering* at tasks or levity of demeanor; no judicial magnate ever elothtd" himself in dignity and reticence more severe than characterized Lot under the new ??'ministration, at whose bead stood bi> brisk little wife. To u*. the advent of Lot's wife marked the eommer cement of a new era; wholsome food, a tidv raldn. ami. above more darning of seeks, or washing-davs. The wilderne*. had begun to blossom. We even attained to. now ar.3 then, the luxury of a "biled shirt." We w? re oj ? rung up a new and richer vein in our claim, and prosperity and contentment smiled u| on us. It was an evil daytbat dawned upon our camp in the gulch, when one of the boys, ten miles ?l nve us. turned in on his way to'the city, al most prostrate from a sudden attack of moun tain fever, and with money to pay a note which had become due on .1 quartz mill. He wanted to know it any of us were going in. as he cauld make it worth our while to do the errand for him, he remaining at our cubin until the mes senger's return. As it happened, we were not intending t<> go tor several davs. our stock of supplies on band beitig considerable and not having enough dust to pay for carrying it to ; the bank. Lot's wife, however, on learning the state of affairs, was observed to communicate some instructions to the ten-vear-old. who immedi ately "lit out"' in the direction of his father's claim. A few moment*, and Lot him self came in. He was willing to accommodate, and would go to the citv. His claim wasn't paving him much: and he might as well look about a little. All of which familiar terms might have been translated to mean that bis wife wasnot at all averse to earning the "some l thing" before intimated which should '-make it worth his while." None of us questioifpd Lot's honesty, and we made haste to get liuu off as soon as possible. It was after nightfall of tire en ling d*y. when he was seen riding furiously >ward the camp, looking neither right nor 1< t, bating neither breath nor si>eed, until opposi e his own 1 threshold, he leaped to the ground, < ashed in side the cabin, and slammed to the door. We had scarce time to wonder at this strange ! and usual proceeding, when there swarmed ! upon us a party of nien-*rni?l, and sttrn, members of a vigilance committee. 1 heir errand was soon made known: tliey were in parsiflt of the unhappy Lot. A party instantly surrounded his cabin. Then the whole of fhe unfortunate affair came out. Ix?t's spirit released from its accustomed res traint had rebounded like a balloon that has thrown over its ballast. "TarlerV last words were useless as the wind againal this sudden and overwhelming elevation. l?orn of renewed , liberty. His journey furnished him a golden op|>ortnnity. thougli brief, for the renewal of those harmless indulgences of late so religiously foregone. A chance acquaintance, met just in the edge of town, easily led the way to a friendly tipple in the nearest salooQ. Tnis change of good fellowship eventuallv resulted in many more, under the combined influence of which, no Itothscbild ever felt richer than did i-ot w itU the trust-money in his hand. What occured thereafter, passed to Lot like a troubled dream. There was a vague remem brance of all his hands at the bar. a scuttle, a pistol-shot or two; ami then the mad race home, a trust lietrayed. the stain of blood upon his hands, and the "Vigilantes" close upon his beel*. They were sere enough of him now?12 men to one, and he trapped like prairie-dog in his hole. Lion, the huge St. Bernard, came smelling at the garment? ot the invaders, looking up with large, inquiring eyes. Half unconsciously, the leader patted the rough head caressingly, as it rubbed against his hand. The dog. friendly to the friendly, reared upon his hind legs and placed his fore-paws on the leader's shoulder* standing a hall-head taller than the man him self. Meanwhile, mi sound nor light came from l.ot's cabin Lion, going over, pushed at the door with a low whine. S|>eedilv following, the leader, with three of his men, knocked for ad mittance. Straightway in the door appeared Lot's wife. "Gentlemen what will you have'."' "We have business with your husband, mad am. Will you ask him to step outside?" "My husband is not able to attend to busi ness. to-night." ? But our business is important, and cannot wait. If be does not come out, we must come in." "Gentlemen, you cannot see my husband to night!" Her voice was firm, even, decisive: l>erhaps a trifle more decisive than usual. The dog. crouching at her feet, gave a lew growl. "Woman, we have no time ts bandy words! l?et ns pass!" The dog rose partly up, with a menacing growl. The woman behind him seemed to rise ami expand in the white heat ot passion that poeeeneed her. Her voice roee high ami shrill ? "And I say you shall not pass! you that come 12 armed me'nj with murder in your hearts, to take an innocent man out from the midst of big helpless children. I swear that you shall not touch a bair of his head to-night!" As she spoke, drawing with dextrous hand a "Colt's navy" from the fold of her dress, she held it at full cock, bearing straight upon the leader's heart. Not a man among them but was touched at the sight of this dauntless devotion; yet emotion most not prevent the discharge of duty. "But this man has committed murder?the gravest crime known in the eves of the law. Public safety demands that we deal with him according to the letter of the law," expostu lated the leader, more moved than be cared to acknowledge. A superb scorn overswept the woman's feat nres. Bending to touch the dog with her hand, the huge creature drew bimself erect, angry and bristling, with his li|* drawn threateningly back from Ma formidable teeth. Then boldly throwing open the cabin door, she pointed witb ? praised linger, still holding the deadlv weapon aimed full at the leader s breast. A'scathing contempt rang in her words:? "Does that man look like a cut-throat .' Can you all, looking inside this cabin tell me that you are afraid to spare him to his wife and chil dren this one last night ."' She paused* moment, glancing swiftly around 1 the circle of rough faces pressing close upon 1 her. The tableau within snowed I.ot, crouch ing upon a low camp-stool, pale, disordered, and shaking with terror, clasping in his arms his youngest born; the girls, tinu and fearless as their mother, were planted at his knees; while between him and the door, the ten-vear-old. with a dilapidated chair, as a rest, stood behind his father's rifle. The she-bear and her cubs were grit to the 1 backbone. "Who are you?" she cried, eloquently gestur ing to the crowd with her unoccupied hand, "that take the business of the Almighty inro y >ur own bauds, and send the son Is he has made unbidden Into his presence, without a prayer tor mercy? Which would be the better, yen or him? Leave bim to us this night, and as surely ss there is a heaven al>ove us. In the morning you shall come iu without hindrance! You can guard the cabin. There is no danger he will escape you!" There wu a murmur among the " vigilantes." Their task w as a harder one than thev were prepared to execute; and perhaps a thought of wives ami children at home moved them a little to this unwonted leniency. A brief confer ence. and the leader said: ? "Have your wav. Make the most of your time. We 11 not disturb you until morning." "You are not deaeiving'me?" she said, watch ing the while with eyes which seemed to pierce like sharp steel points." A hoarse inurmnr ran through the crowd. "No! no! Fair play!" For a moment the women's strength seemed to fail, and she leaned heavily against the case ment another, and she disapi>eared within, the faithful dog following, protectinglv, close be hind. The men bivouacked around the cabin, dis posing themselves for the night, two or three appointed sentinels keeping vigilant watch. The other member of the camp unable to sleep, had kept wakeful vigil nsing our little in fluence and knowledge of the accused's inoffen sive disposition to mitigate, If possible, the pre judice which we found greater than the real weight of evidence against him. In an affray, two men had been stabbed?one seriously, one ratally; and Lot's hand held a bloody knife. Innocent men have been banged even after fall judicial trial, under circumstan tial evidence far less convincing than this. As the night wore away, I rest lees ly paeed the camp. An occasional sound came from the guarded cabin, bat otherwise all wae still. One*, about midnight, after a prolonged scratching at the door, it was opened to let out the dog. A stream of light flashed oat; bat 1 caught uo glympee of those within. The dog. ror fellow, as though his canine spirit seemed comprehend the fatal danger impending over those he loved, with drooping head pendent tail, slunk through the open space. ! "Good Lion! Poor Fellow! Gome here!" I called 1 He lifted hie head at the sound of my voice, raised his female mournfully in the air, then drooping it again, wont on, eoon disappearing in the ad.ia^mt chaparral.

Th? rerrest.Narready Riot. I lie editor ot Appleton's Journal gives the Jollowmg account of the events in the theater mii!iting which preceded the famous riot in the Astor-place: We were among those gathered at the theater on that occasion and shall uever forget its ex citing incident*. The house was crowded. The play was Macbeth. When Mao ready appeared there was afnghttul storm ot hisses and denun ciations from one faction, and tumultuous ap plause from the other actor's friends. No mis i. t arere thrown, hut groups of people stood up in different part# oi the house shooting and vio li ntly gesticulating. The Play proceeded, but not a word could be heard. Presently groups ot |>oliccmen could be seen gatheirng nt dif ferent I'Ointo; suddenly there was a rush up on the rioters, and many arrests made. , 1 hi? device was repeated until all the rioters were in custody or silenced. | 1 he play bad now reached the third act, and went on without interruption. But by thistime the building was undergoing a regular siege a vast mob in the streets without. The windows had been 1-larded up, and against them the rioters outside were burlinghroadsidesof stones and brickbats. < >cea*ional!y a board would yield to a well-directed stone, and the missile would come crushing into the auditorium. One stone struck the central chandelier and fell with a mass of broken glass, into the parquet! In the lobbies were gathered numerous ilolice a,,j . military. The doors were barri caded with heavy beams. The play continued to the end amid these exciting conditions. In the last act. it will be rememt>ered, Macbeth I IS shut up in a besieged castle. The mimic scene copied the real one. -Our castle's 1 ?

In five minutes after their dispcrjton-we were some three squares dis tant?the Bring upon the mob began, with what fatal results we all know. It was the first tune we ever listened to a play when in a state ot siege; it was exciting enough, but we little dreamed of the fearful tragedv so soon to be enacted in bloody earnest inthestreets without.

Kle\en s'.esmship lines use the wme path, with the same degree of latitude and longiftidt, between the old world and the new. and it ii< seldom that a *t >amer crossing the Atlantic is not within a few miles of another vessel bound in the same or in a precisely oppo site direction. The number of craft plying tliis path is increasing almost daily; their proximity to one another is consequently more marked, and that collisions are not more frequent is the result of chance. From the masthead of each steamer a watch is supposed to be kept, ami in foggy weather the whistle is sounded about every tifteen seconds; t>ut when a vessel is roll ing beavilv it L almost impossible to see the lights of another steamshsp at night time, and, except when ort a dangerous coast. the engines are continued at full speed. It is strange there fore that so few disasters like that in which the t'nited States mail steamer Arctic ran into ancther steamer, in October, lt<51, and went down, oct ur at present time. A code regu lating the passages is l>elieved by some persons, however, to be abselutely necessary. The interest in the matter has been renewed from the fact that a company running four steamships a week between this city, Boston, and Liverpool, has adopted a plan known as the "lane route,'' proposed as long ago as 185">. by Professor M. F. Maury. This contemplates the designation ot one strip of ocean through which vessels bound east shall pass and another lor those bound west. It isclaimed that thereby not only will the liabilitv of collision between steamer and steamer be lessened, but that a new resource will be afforded to those in dis tress on the hifch seas. Fogs and calms often occur together, and ships moved by canvas.* are not likely to run into another, but they are placed in peril by the steamers. It is added4 that if the masters knew the track of the steam ships they would carefully keep out of it. and that the iuore sailing vessels will agree to keep out of the lanes the more it will concern steamers to kse^in them. The part of the ocean t-i versed by the steam ship lines in their voyages is about 150 or '?!?*> mil?*s broad, and it is proposed in the new plan to mark out a lane from this 15 or 25 miles broad, which will at least reduce the present risks. It is further claimed that the lane to the west will belW miles shorter than the route generally taken, and some delays from fogs will be avoided, as it passes 1??) miles south of Cape Hace. Another advantage claimed for the lane system is that one way it lies along the n rthern edge of I he Gulf stream, where there i* an eddy setting westward often at the rate of a knot ari hour. The close of the argument in favor of the system is that the distance from C?i>e Clear to Sandy Hook will be practically shortened :?> miles,and that, while ft prolongs

the distance to Europe 75 miles, compensation will be found in the greater security and the Advantages ot the Gulf stream and fewer fog#. y. 1*. Trji'tin'. A Fatal Tiger I'lghl. Mr. .Joseph Gay, son ot the comptroNor of public works accounts in the Nizanis territory, in India, lately lost his life in an encounter with a tigtr. Several persons bad Iwen killed by the man eater, who hail been infesting the neigh borhood of Sanlgram in the Chudderghant Ii trict. The operations of the public works de partment ha<i been seriously interfered with, and Mr. Marrett. the district engineer, and young Mr. Gay started for a village near which the tiger had been marauding. Kacli was aimed with a ride, and tour shikarees, also armed accompanied them. The party collected a number ot beaters, who were set to work to ?Irive the tiger from his hiding place. Mr. Marrett and one of the shikarees stationed themselves under a tree, while Mr. Gay who had no experience in tiger hunts, climbed dp the tree. Suddenly the tiger made a spring from a thicket near by at Mr. Marrett, who had only time to drop on his knees and fire. The ball struck the animal in the lower jaw. completely {shattering it. The tiger sprang upon Mr. Marrett and, together with the sliikaree. they rolled over on the ground. Mi. Gay at this'moment, while trying to change his position so as to get a clear shot, lost his balance and fell from his perch on the back of the enraged tiger, who turned upon him and mangled nim feat fully with his claws. His jaw bad been rendered useless by Mr. Mar rett's snot. When Mr. Marrett, who had swooned away In his struggle with the tiger, re gained his consciousness, he saw the man-eater still mangling his victim. Unfortunately Mr. Marret's rifle was useless, as it had been dam aged in the struggle. The tiger left Mr. Gay on seeing his friend move about, and retired a short distance, only to return, however, to Mr. Gay's prostrate body when Mr. Marrett and the shikaree attempted to come to the rescue. The beaters, who had remained passive spectators of the scene, were at length induced to charge in a body, and they succeeded, with the aid of tom-toms, in driving him to a neighboring hill, where he soon disappeared. The injured man was carried to camp, where his numerous wounds were dressed. He appeared to be pro gressing favorably until about six hour after ward, when he complained of a choking sensa tion and died almost Immediately. Mr. Gav, after a successful academical career in England, had but lately joined his father in Inuia, and was at the time of the accident under Mr, Marrett's professional training. The BaiNe of Life Ameag Plant*. Every day, every hour there is going on around us a veritable death-struggle. It e? cites little attention. People would be in no hurry to read the telegraphic dispatches con cerning it from the seat of war, even if there were any to read. Special correspondents there are, but their letters are appreciated but by a few. Nevertheless, it can not be saul that man kind in general is not interested in thi* result of the struggle. On the contrary, little as the af fair is heeded, it is of very serious import to the human race. Our food-supplies depend on it; the well-being of our tiOcks and herds is essen tially dependent on it; the building of our houses the fabrication of our raiment, are to a large extent contingent on It; nay, the soil bene th our feet, and the very sky above our heads, _-e materially, very materially influenced bytl*. result of the contest of which we are about ti speak. Edward Forbes was wont to say that the movement of a periwinkle over a rock might be of greater consequence to the hnman race than the progress of an Alexander; and the results of the wars of the plants are assuredly of no less impor taace, seeing that the very exis tence of an Alexander depends in no slight de gree upon them. The campaigns we speak of are real; they are not mental figments, or alle gorical illustrations. Success in the practice of horticulture, of agriculture, of forestry, de pends on the action we men take toward the combatants. If we remain neutral the weakest goes to the wall, overpowered by the stronger; if we Interfere, we exert a powerful influence for the time; but immediately we cease to exert our power, the combat begins again, and with enhanced violerce. The essence of successful cultivation often consists almost entirely in the influence of that hostile "environment" to which, under natu ral circumstances, it would be subjected. Itis th ? that accounts in a great measure, though of course not wholly, for the oft-observed fact that certain plants, flowers and fruita attain far greater perfection in our gardens than they ever do in their native countries?if. T. Ma*ten, in Ppputar Science Monthly for May. "Till Death Do U? Paut."?The Earl and Countess of Coventry attended the meeting of the North Cotswold hounds at Elmly Castle on the 3d of April. The hound* were going at a tremendous pace, and had absolutely crossed the fox for iMut two miles. The Earl was close up, and his wife following. On riding at a rapid gallop up to a fence, his lordship was hor rified to observe that beyond the fence lay an old quarry, fifteen feet aeer. It was then too late to divert the horse, and both the horse and rider Ml Into the quarry. The horse then broke away, leaving the Earl in the quarry. It is sup posed that the Countess observed the horse run ning away without the Earl, and for this reason she made for the sane fence, cleared it, and met with a similar accident, with, however, a less favorable result, for while th* gentleman was but a little shaken, It was at first thought that the Countess was killed. Her horse was found to have broken hie back, and was shot shortly afterward. Beyond a slight ooncusslon or the brain, and some severe bruises about her head and faoe, the Countess is none the worse for the accident. ?7"One of the 'cutest and ssost characteristic operations we hare hoard ef wee perpetrated by afsllow la this eouatry a few weeks ago.

IMiryea writes in the Indus trial Monthly: "We could have a fireproof con struction, se'eing that we have the advantage of manufactured iron to do the same which brick and stone were forced to perform in those days of less intelligence. Iron might almost ex clude wood in all our places of entertainment; and. as the tubular form is the strongest, all girders and breast-summers might be tubular; and here we would have at once a mean> of dis seminating hot air in winter and cold air in summer. All joists might be of l>oiler-p!ate. tlanged. The floors of boxes and gallerie* slit'iild l?e first sheeted with plate iron, and the boarding be laid over it. The fioat* of all the circles should be ornamented metal. The roof should l?e of iron trussed, covered w ith iron plate. There should be passage* ot arched brickwork 011 everv tloor. into which a* m:i 11 y doors should open "as possible, and all these passagesshouldopenintoageneral hallon each floor, from which capacious stairs should give easy egress to the streets around, each floor being in connection with a street. The auditorium being thu? protected, it remain? to make the stage and its surroundings sate. And here the greatest amount of precaution is called for. l?ecauso here the principal and most active source of danger exists. First of all, the stage should be i>ermaiiciitlv built on brick arches, having the squandrills formed into circular Hues for the conveyance of hot air to warm it by registers, a furnace of sufficient rapacity being constructed near the center for the pur pose. The dressing-rooms should be all of sheet iron, and the framing and sides for the scenery should be of iron; the canvas or which the scenes are painted should be prepared so as to make them fire-proof; the rigging, usually ot ro|>es. should l?e of wire, unless where it is absolutely necessary to have hempen conls or for certain puriioses. The roof over the stage should be of iron, and. as it never is ami# t<> make assurance doubly sure, an iron water t ink of large dimensions' might be placed over the stage, which, in the event ot any possible accident by tire, could instantly furnish a good supply of water to a local hose and pipe. This tank might, on occasions of grand spectacular presentations?.such, for instance, a* "Cherry and Pair Star"?be lowered upon the stage, ami add real water to the effect*. Balconies should surround the auditorium on each floor, and the w indows opening on to them should be made to act as sash-doors. All the external doors should open outwards, for it was owing to the neglect of this precaution that the burning of the the ater at Richmond. Ya., some years ago. proved so fearfully fatal." Treftliff Extraordinary. TW O HUNDRED MILKS IK F< >RT Y-Fl V 1 HOCRS. ?>n Wednesday and Thursdav, the 14th and 15th insts., the Driving Park at St- Paul, Minn., was the scene of an extraordinary trot?Mr. Martin Delancy matching his sorrel mare (a snuill full-blooded Morgan) to trot two hundred iniles in forty-five hours for the small stake of fttOQ. The St. Paul Pre it says of the first day: The trot was commenced vesterday at twenty minutes past four a. m.,'Mr. ,1.'Camming* holding the ribbons. The mare started out at a rate or more than ten miles an hour. At five minutes past ten she had completed the first fifty miles, making it some fire hours and fortv tive minutes. She was then given a rest of three hoars and a Half, ami was started at a lit tle past half-past one on the the second fifty miles. At half-past seven she had completed it, having made the first hundred miles in fifteen hours, which leaves thirtv-three hours for the completion of the other hundred. She made the last mile of the first hundred vester dav the fastest of any?five and one-half min utes. Those who witnessed the feat say that the mare showed no sign of fatigue, never sweat a ha!r, and trotted oft' to the stable to feed at the end of her day's labor as briskly as though she bad just come from the barn. Of the second the same paper savs: Wednes day the first one hundred miles was completed, and at half-past seven o'clock the mare was driven to the stable apparently in as good con dition as if she had traveled one-quarter of the distance. Yesterday morning when taken out of the barn at five o'clock to complete the trot she seemed a little sore at first, but soon warmed up and commenced her dav's work with wonderful ease. At ten o'clock she had completed thirty-one miles, and sras withdrawn until four minutes past twelve p. m. After this rest, in which she manifested no signs of weari ness, she made her next seven miles in one hour and two minutes. No pains were taken to keep a regular account of her rate of speed, but in general terms it averaged through the day about six minutes and five and one-Ealfseconds |K>r mile for the first fifty miles, and seven min utes ami two and one-half seconds for the second fifty miles. After the rest given the :uare (Tom seven until nine o'clock in the even ?g?all parties on the ground saw that she would make her 3H0 rules easily. She pursued fast even gait, and a few minutes past one i-'clock this morning completed the race, mak ing her last mile in nine minutes and thirty-one seconds. Thus she won the wager, ami in three hours less than the time given her. She trotted or) the track seemingly unconscious of the mar vel she had performe<f. A Cat aered Legislator. A gentleman who now occupies a seat in the upper branch, of the New York legislature, but at the time was a member of the assembly, re* late* the following: "Perkins was a* honest a man as ever set foot in Albanv. Money wouldn't buy him, and I knew it, but I thought I would have a little fun with him, so I went down to his room one even* ing and said ?Perkins, what do yon think of that underground railroad bill? Are you going to vote for it?" ?Well," said Perkins'I haven't made up my mind yet, exactly. I am inclined to think it u a good bill; but why do yon ask?' ?I thought you were in favor of it,' said 1, 'and as long as yon have concluded to vote for It, I just wantea to say to you that the men Interested in it are paying five hundred dollars for vote*, and as It is coming op on its final passage to morrow, you can Just as well have the money as not; vou'H vote for the bill, anyway," ??Vote for the bill!
