Going too often to l1ie ing too late when a Lucky Experiment. During t lie severe Frost which took place a bout four Nisi Iris ago a Lively lass we o had Heen married about a year ind a ii ref in fore to a Young Farmer on lire Lior Ders of Itoney Jii Arsh was much scandalized at her Hul and Pul Rie House a a stay in was there.

Not dreaming that Slie a Oulu carry her thu Eaf into execution a few Days Lead Only elapsed when the 4ron Tongue of Midnight had told twelve quot before at his own door. His wife let him in herself and with out saying syllable set Dov a the Candle walked Dellbe rat Clyo the Cradle snatched up the Union Cious Little innocent sleeping within it and rushed out of the House. It is hardly Neces. Sary to say that the alarmed husband ran hastily after but so sudden and unexpected had been her movement that she had gained a considerable Start and the canal being but a few Yards from their dwelling reached the Tow ath before ii could overtake her. In was just in time to seize and save her from self a destruction but the poor Little thing was already in the Middle of the water at that spot about four feet deep and he could witness its struggles by tie lighter the Moon. In an instant he threw himself in and grasping the night gown which had prevented its wearer from Sij Jung Brou it safely to the ban cat messed in Little Polly s bed clothes exceedingly vet and now mewing piteously. His spouse in the mean Lime had regained her own door which was not opened till he had plenty of time to enjoy All the comforts of his situation. Before however he was quite an icicle admission was vouchsafed but the Story of his self inflicted ducking having got wind no further stratagem was necessary to wean the Swain from his symposium the jokes of his convivial acquaintance being sufficient to prevent his again partaking their revels. To the Point. A.

I m satisfied this is the Point and therefore feel constrained to move that the organs for the militia be eternally j\r.h. Eagle. A horse election. Horses Are represented by naturalists As having in a state of nature a real repel lican government it is Only when tamed and civilized by Man that they become slaves. In Timeir wild state in South America and tiie Ukraine they arc said to have regular elections for the Choice of a president or chief magistral. In what manner they vote naturalists do not pretend exactly to describe. It is a pretty evident to us it cannot be by ballot. It May be in the Virginia Mode of Viva Voce or it May be by quot a division of the in tiie Ukraine says or. Good the Cleof Tofte in command seems from All the Riiser nations of naturalists to hold his office Airout four or five years when a new election tales Piai ethic oui Sulinie Shively Falhen into Ilic ranks Wheir the oils Are opened. So Mcinnes he is re elected not always. In Case Tiu re is no Choice by the people the opposing candidates fight it oui and the conqueror then quietly assumes the reins of government thus emphatically proving himself in sight of his constituents to be the better Many we beg his Pardon the better horse. Taking this account of the naturalists to be True. Swift s Story of the Hough Hunis is not so very improbable As has generally been supposed by the Reader. Tiie differ ice ii tween them and the of her republics of horses seems merely to have been that the former were better educated. They were Groat Piil losers and moreover remarkable for purity a their Domestic characters. As horses in their Best state Are quot staunch republicans a question arises whether Timeir Mode of government was at first adopted Fiona such republics As appeared among Mankind or whether the notion of free government among men has not rather been copied from that among the horses but we must leave Titis question to the ingenuity of tiie natural Isle from whom the above very curious facts have been taken.
