Mr Harris rejoined angrily, when Mr C. drew

was prevented from a further attack by his

Ke" Plan for Railway.
The Xew York National .Democrat; hotices
'gpiuie$&?3g hay4)f ila11roadLl&njsti3i&
tiopi the .ravlwil of Mr Henry Smith , of Michi
gan. Mr Smith's proposition, as we learn from
thcDemoerat, isto build IlailvTays wholly of iron,
elevating the track on cast iron columns, and
suspending the cars" from the track instead of
resting them ou it. The National Democrat
says : '
"Such a road can be built for less thin the
expense of building a ground road, it will be
infinitely more durable, is less liable to get out
of repair, and secures a degree of safety, with
twice the speed, not yet dreamed of by travellers
on our best managed roads. The idea is a novel
one, and from a pretty thorough examination
of the plan,'we think it entirely practicable, and
one admirably suited to the exigencies of the
times. Everyone feels the necessity of secur
ing greater safety on our railroads, and there
is a rapidly increasing demand for this mode of
conveyance. Railroads are springing up as if
by magic in all sections of the world; and
hence the great necessity for those engaged in
their construction to encourage every idea that
tends iu any way towards economy, durability,
facility of construction and transit, and, above
all, to insure safety: All these, and more, are
comprehended in an eminent degree in the
Elevated Railway. It possesses a vast number
of advantages over any railway now in opera
tion on the face of the globe. Aside from its
cheapness, durability, safety, etc., it can be run
through the thoroughfares of our cities and
villages (cars at full speed) without obstruction
or annoyance, an air line can be more easily
pursued, while curves can be turned with no
kind of fear of the cars ever running olf the
track, far heavier grades cau be ascended with
ease, it cats no man's farm iu two, in no way
endangers travel on our highways, and it is im
possible for the cows to get on the track, while
it looks down with contempt on the snow bank."
"An old soaker who lives in "Western, Mis

nesessary for his future welfare to be 'born
a "'in ' nnt1 rthwith repaired to the Rev
the respected pastor of the Baptist
denomination of the town aforesaid, to obtain
light. He was received with urbanity, and
forthwith the following ensued:
Old S. Its your doctrine, boss, that a feller
to be saved must suffer immersion, isn't it?
Mr B. Yes, Mr S., it is a fundamental doc- (
trine of our Church, that a man to be regenera
ted, must repent of his sius, and be immersed.
Old S. Well, boss, after repentin' and been
slid under, if he flashes the pan, then what?
Mr 15. Although back-sliding is much to be
deplored, still, if he sincerely repents of his sin
and is again immersed, the Church will receive
him again. i
Old S. Well, s'noso he asr'in kicks out of j
the traces after the second time, (for you know
what critters there are iu the world, boss) then
what fs to pk3'?
- Mr B. Notwithstanding all this, if he w ill
seriously repent, and solemnly promise to amend
his future life, the Church will again receive
him into its bosom, after being immersed.
Old S., (after a few moments of deep thought,)
proposes the closing interrogatory Well, boss,
would'nt itbe a blasted good idea to keep sich fel
lers iu a soak all the time?"
My" informant did not say whether old S.,
joined the Church or not, but I incline to the
opinion that he didn't." Knickerbocker.

j u eorge i lower, a famous mounted policeman,
j who was sent out to hunt tip a notorious bush-
i ranger, named MilKghon :

supposed Flower to te dead. After some eon-

"How fight fair?"
"Whv, I'd ask him to measure off fiftv vards,
to walk backwards live-aud-tweuty paces, and
let me do the same."
"And do you think he would doit?"
"Yes I do, for he was a man. 1 have often
wished to meet that fellow in the field, for what
I most want iu this life is its excitement and to
be killed by the hand of a man like Flower, or
to escape by killing him in a fair light either
way would be something to suit me."
"Millighau," said Flower slowly, "I believe
every word you utter. Now listen to what I
am iroing to tell you. I am George Flower .'"
Milliglian started. He gazed on Flower,
whose eye was now riveted on that of his adver
sary. Millighan's carbine dropped from his hand
but he did not change color or betray any alarm.
"Pick up your piece," said Flower, pointing
to t lie carbine and assuming a proud and care
less attitude. "I am all you have said of me,
Millighau. I might have shot you like a dog;
before I spoke to you just now; but I could not
do that, for you are a man as well as myself,
and 3-011 are as brave as generous. Pick up
your piece and walk backward five and twenty
paces; but let us shake hands first." Millighau
took Flower's hand, and sighed heavily as he
shook it. "Do not surrender," suggested Flow
er, half fearing that Millighau would do so and
break the very charm that bound him to the
"Surrender!" cried Milliglian, with a smile
and a sneer; "no! I'll uever do that. And
knowing you to be a brave foe. I have still a
chance; for I shoot as straight as yon do. But
tell me in earnest; are you George Flower?
Yes, you must be. But hear this (his blood
btfgau to; warni)if -j-on are sot, we must tight
this day-, for we cannot after this live together."
And Milliglian took up his carbine, and satisfied
himself that there was powder in the pan, and
with his left thumb he pushed the corner of his
flint round so as to insure ignition when he drew
Flower placed his carbine against a huge
stone, then put his hands into his pockets and
looked at Milliglian, "I am George Flower,"
said he, "and who but George Flower would
deal with you as I do? Don't let us talk much,
or I may forget my mission and become a bush
ranger myself." And Flower took up his car
bine, and examined the powder in his pan, and
touched the flint as Milliglian had done.
"Flower! for Flower you be," said Millighau,
"grant me, if 3011 shoot me, one desire that has
haunted me. I do not dread death, but I have
a lienor of burial. If I fall, suffer me to lie on
the very spot. Let the eagle come and feast
upon 1113 carcas, pluck these ees from their
sockets and the skin from this brow; let me lie
here in this lonely region, and let 1113 bones
bleach in the sun, and the rain fall, and and
the moon and stars shine upon them."
"My God!" exclaimed Flower, seizing Millig
lian bv the arm, "the same dread of being hur
ried has ever haunted me. If I fall bv your
hand, let me rest here, with 1113 head pillowed
upon this gun. Let no man living be shown
the spot where I fell."
"Take 3our ground," said Milliglian. "I am
"There is my hand," said Flower, "and should
we meet in another world we shall not be
ashamed of one another, 1113 boy."
Tears were standing in the eyes of both Flow
er and Milligham when the parted. Each
stepped backward pace for pace. Milliglian
followed by his little terrier, Nettles. When
thev were about fifty yards apart, they halted
and" looked at each other for several minutes.
Both simultaneously levelled their carbine but
each was indisposed to be the first to fire At
last Milliglian discharged his piece. He had
aimed at Flower's heart. His bullet whizzed
past Flower's head, and carried away part of
the left whisker. Flower fired and Millighau
fell flat on his face. The ball had entered his
left breast. Flower ran to the spot to catch
any last word Millighau might desire to breathe.
But Milliglian was dead.

Svduey Smith than forward priggism. One

This rebuff vastly amused the Compaq ; but
the object of it, being a fool at all points, did
not see this point, and talked on in happy un

Seeking Letters under BifficnHles.
A capital anecdote has been told us of a Mr
Cornix, who acted a week or two as' deputy for
a Postmaster at one of our West-Yirginia Min
eral Springs, last Summer. Mr Cornix, never
having touccived the notion cf going to France,
' .-Never" learned the lingo,'
and s,ji .the following laughable disconfiture be
fell hinl in consequence of meeting a live French
man in the course of his official duties.

came in, therefore, Monsieur La Doux was the
first at the office.
"Any lettaire for Monsieur La Doux?" I.e.
would enquire; and then the imperturbable Cor

and return for answer "Wall, 110 reckon rot."
For two weeks did the indefatiable Ln Doux

meet the invariable " all, no reckon nof."

deputy and doubting his friends. The deputy's
"Wall, no reckon not" was become hateful to
his cars, yet he could not refrain from enquiring
for his letters. The deputy, for his part, set the
Frenchman down as a bore, and cursed him in
his heart ever time he turned away. Observ
ing the pile of letters in the L. box to be on the.
increase daih', a luminous idea at last popped
into the Frenchmen's head :
"Mou friend," said he, one da, after hearing
the deputy's "Wall, no," for the fourteenth
time, "sail I 'ave de plaisir to look at de let

"Ban!" exclaimed La Doux, throwing off a
letter from the top of the pile with an exultant
look : "Helas! no lettaire for Monsieur La
Doux en rcriteV he again exclaimed, throwing
down three or four more; "C'est bien! no let
taire!" and so he weut on exclaiming and throw
ing out until he had found ten. Picking up his
own letters, he turned round upon the deputy
with a savage air "No lettaire for Monsieur
La Doux! what vou call dat? Ees dat no let

"Them letters b'longs to Monsurc La3 Ducks,"
exclaimed Cornix, who had an idea that he was
about to be imposed upon or robbed.
"Lay Ducks!" exclaimed the Frenchman,
with a look of mingled ind gnation and contempt

"That's a fact!" exclaimed Cornix, with a
sudden enlightenment; "Devil take the French,"
he continued, smarting under his chast ist iiicnt.

to the door with a grumbling curse on all fools

A good story is told, in an ea.slcrn paper, of
the treatment of a drunken husband by his ami
able spouse. After trying various experiments,
all to cure drunkenness, she thought of another
plan of making a reformed drunkard of her lord:
She engaged a watchman for a stipulated re
ward to carry Philander to the watch-house,
while yet in a state of insensibility, and to fright
en him a little when he recovered. In conse
quence of this arrangement, Philander waked
up about eleven o'clock at night, and found
himself Hing on a pine bench in a strange ami
dim apartment. liaising himself upon his el
bow, lie looked aroud until his eyes rested on a
man 113 the stove smoking a cigar.
'Where am T? said Philander.
In a medical college,' said the cigar smoker.
'What doing there?'
'Going to be cut up?'
'How comes that?'

the result ; so, with no gentle handling, 1 e
