- ---iZ . - . ---- JJisccllany. Oil il>e Trail. [From Chambers’* Journal. | 1 am a Police Superintendent in a large iron-making town, and lor upwards of twenty years have had the care of a populous colliery district. The peculiar avocations o l the peo ple supply ample disguise for criminals in hid ing. Who would look lor a runaway clerk in the black face and coal-stained garments of a collier? It may be assumed, therefore,that many a strange incident ha* come under iny notice in the course of so long a service. One in particular I remember well, its prac tically illustrating a remark made in (he Times on the conviction of Muller, that crimes of a conspicuous character are gener ally committed by a class that is least suspect ed. I was called one evening to quell a dis turbance between several colliers and a party of Irishmen. The colliers, it appears,mad dened by drink, had assailed the latter, driven them into a dwelling, and would speedily have killed one or mote, but for tbe opportune ar rival of the police. The night afterwards, 1 received a note trom the authorities that a coal-train had been thrown off the line by some miscreant or other, who had placed sleepers along the rails. Knowing that col liers working at a distance invariably returned by the trains, and remembering the struggle ol the night before, I at once concluded this to he an attempt at Irish revenge, and pur sued my investigations accordingly. A few nights alter, another coal-train was thrown ofl the rails, as in the former case, however, without harm to men; but this sec ond attempt spurred me on so that certain suspected persons were speedily in custody.— But 1 soon found that these were not "my men.’ It is useless for me to expatiate on the unerring signs by which innocence invariably asserts ilseif. The Irishmen were violent in 1 heir cups, but most certainly incapable of the atrocious act of which they were accused. Scarcely had a week passed when tbe whole neighborhood was thrilled with horror. At a distance of twelve miles from the town where I live, there was another town to which our tradesmen resorted in numbers every Wednes day to market. In the evening, the last train as usual, bore its numerous passengers to their homes. It was summer-time, and mer rily they dashed along the rugged hank' of a mountain-river, winding in amougst the hills. Bui soon the picture was changeil: turning a curve in lull career, the engine left the rails. and cutting deeply into the embankment, roll ed on its side, fortunately having continued juit a sufficient time in progress to break the sboclt ol the carriages. 1 here was an awtul ers oi lamentation, a wild medley, a hurried scene: men and women seeking to clamber through tbe opening above the locked doors, too inleut on personal safety to think ol any thing else. Most were bruised and ail were frightened. While messengers were despatch ed lor the nearest station, others searched along the route for the cause of tbe mishap.— U was soon found. The scene oi the acciuent was a curve, and llie rail nearest the liver had been forcibly removed. The miscreant—for u was soon seen that a viilaiu’s hand bad been there—had fortunately been ignorant of me chanics. He had taken up the rail by the ra vine—for 1 have omitted to mention that there was a steep precipice at this point—and naturally thought that the train with its load ol human li e would have tumbled over. Tbe mil next to the river was the “sale,’’ and so the engine simply ploughed along towards the scarp oi tiie mountain. " mu uk ueiaus oi mis lucky escape leaclied me, L Celt that my reputation was at slake. This was evidently Number 1'hree ol the diabolical attempts oi the same hand.— the first inquiry made was: Who drove the train? and one or two questions ol a similar character put me hi possession of this impor tant lact, tn it the driver ol the train and che driver ol the coal-engine trains at the time the trucks were thrown oil, was one and the same person. •'Now, tiien, tor the driver,” said I, and marched to Ids lodgings. 1 lound him a qui et. inotfensive sort ol young leilow, not a like ly man to have a malignant enemy. He was unmarried, and somewhat fresh to his duties on the line, not having been in the position very long. We at once touched ou the sub jeci ol tlie accident, but 1 ibund he was quite at sea as to the cause. “Have you ail enemy,” said I, “or any one who entertains malice agamst you? ’ No; he thought not. “ You are unmarried, I believe?” Yes; he was. “Courting, perhaps?” I suggested. He confessed to the soft impeachment. •'Have you a.iy objection to tell me who the lady is?' inquired i; for we police officers are sometimes obliged to override delicate scruples. He mentioned tlie name oi a young wo man residing at a iaimhtiuse six nines down tue valley, ami within half a mile of the scene ot the accident. 1 drew a long breath, but kept my own counsel. "Ou, so the damsel lives there, does she ?— Now has she any other sweethearts besides yourseh ? lie thought there liad been one—a carpen ter; but quuth the driver, complacently smoothing an incipient heard: “She has no lovei now but me. '•Where dees this earpeutei five?” “About halt' a mile irmu the iarm,” he an swered; and with that i left, luily satisfied now that 1 was ou the trail. 1he morning after, and at the scene of tire accident, i had touud a large thick stake, erd evidently Iran the adjoining wood. This had been used to pry up the ran from the slceoer. Examining it minutely i saw that it had been cut recently, and that with a notched knife. So, witli this idea uppermost, l started ou me mission, and altei a pleasant drive, reach ed tin-little hamlet where the carpenter lived. Ific district was very mountainous and rug ged ; and as 1 mounted the winding road to wards the house, 1 could hear the monotone ot the river near which so uauow au escape had taken place. Yonder was tue scene. Was the criminal liei e ? The door was soon open ed to my knock, and by the carpenter himself, a cool, self-possessed young man, who seemed to read my errand in a moment yet asked me what i wanted, without the change of a mus cle. 1 entered into his little room, and told him 1 had a suspicion he could enlighten me on the cause ot ihe railway accident. No, he couldn't; he heard ol it. like the rest. Would he allow me to search him ? Certainly: and forthwith various articles ; ir'“V haud- yn ¥3 person 1 lound two ! pocket knives, each of which would have ; served to cut the stake. As I paused a mo meiu ami held them in my hand, lie heedless ly observed: " 1 hat knife” (pointing to one) 1 bhly put into ray pocket this iiiQrokg, as I generally keep it at home.” i opened the finite. The blade was notched; and looking up from the at tide to the carpenter, caught Ins eye. We knew one auo hears thought in an instant; hut lie accompanied me tranquilly enough to the town. At tlie trial the kuite figured in evidence; various corroborating matter satisfied the jury oi his guilt; he was found guiily, and sentenced to seven years* transportation. Ittunied out afterwards that lie loved the faun-girl, and was incited by jealousy to the act which so nearly caused such a Irigbtlul accident. For alii know,the driv er still dwells in single blessedness, tor tlie maid is slid a maid, as rosy-cheeked a» ever, and, it is said, is waiting lor the carpenter's’ return! I ilvcTIcal Joking. We had na idea they had sucii wags away up in Wisconsin. The fol lowing anecdote we pick up as an astray : Joe and Commodore Kodgera, brother black smiths, m Whitewater, Wis., have a great rep utation for being practical jokers. Last sum mer Joe bought an old lashioned chum, for the purpose ot manufacturing their own butter and as the Commodore was a widower, and’ lived with Joe, all such work, us churniu0- nat urally fell to him. Ouo day, after supper, the first churning was got ready and the Commo dore was invited to churn. * “Hold on,” says he, “till I go down and get some tobacco. lie Went, and while gone Joe did the churn ing, took out the butter, and left the butter milk in the churn. The Commodore returned looked at the churn, took off his coat, and says’ “Wa’al, old churn, it’s you and I, and here’s for ye r and commenced his labor. After churning a couple of hours, he remark ed tiiut lie “guessed it would be cheaper to buy butter than to make it.” "1 think so too," said Joe “if you are going to churn it out of butter milk!” A few days after that churning proeesss, Joe put one end of a small bar of iron into his forge tire, gave the bellows three or four pumps, and stepped into the hack shop. While goue, the Commodore heated tile iron to a black heat, then changed cuds with it and stepped out of the front door to watch the progress. In came Joe, took up the iron, hut dropped it instantly, holding up his burned hand, and roared with pain. Tut on some buttermilk, Joe—it’s good tor a burn. said the Commodore, as lie made a masterly retreat amid a shower of bouquets composed ot hammers, hard coal and horse hlioes. Napoleon’s New Muostbb. In „ue llf tlle recent telegrams by the Atlantic cable it was reported that (he Marquis de Lavallette is to suceed Moustier as Minister of Foreign Af fairs in France. M. de Lavallette is allied by marriage to the Emperor, Ins mother being a cousin oi the Empress Josephine, and through his wife, who was the widow of Mr. Samuel Wells, an American banker, he is sup posed to have some sympathies with our country. This lady was a MissFowler,of Water town, Massachusetts. M. de Livailctte was bum in 1810, and belongs to the family of tbe Postmaster-General of tbe first Napoleon. His diplomatic training was begun in 1837, when lie was appointed Secretary to the Em bassy at Stockholm. Since then he has been Consul-General in Alexandria Minister to Hesse Cassel, En voy to Constantinople, a member of tbe | French Senate, Ambassador to Rome ana temporary Minister of State. Whilst dis cnaigin ’ the duties of the latter important po sition he issued the famous dispatch, which tuoughlxam a the name of the Minister, was regarded as Napoleon's own manifesto. In that important document the Empmor’g views oil the /ait« accompli* in January were set forth, allusion was made to the papal question and solicitude expressed for the welfare of the Head of the Church. The writer defined the new principle governing Europe as that of freedom of alliances, and adverted to the rapid growth of Russia and the United States —{Philadelphia Ledger. —An illiterate character has the following conundrum: “What is the difference between Ag, the Canaanitc, and a certain learned pro fessor?

Mr Blanchard has invented a boiler that takes peigttt cont rol ot all the heat and makes it do duty in tj^iginc. This is very sirnpie in its construction; after the engine is in ! motion the unoke pipe is dosed tight, and the waste heat carried through heaters, heating the steam to any temperature desired; the remainder tarried through the water heater, using up all the waste heat but 200dogs.; the heat being reduced so low there can be no danger of setting Arcs by sparks thrown from engines, which will add much value to this invention, besides the saving 1-3 the fuel.
