A few days since a lady was walking
in one of the streets of this city when
she espied an object on the dress of a
young lady, who was a few yards in
advance, which looked very much like
a mouse. The lady jras noU positive,
but the resemblance was so strong that
she called to tho young lady to stop,
which the latter did, and when she was
reacheu by the former the curious ob
ject was discovered to be a mouse, sure
enough! After some strategy and con
siderable tactics the little rodent was
driven from the young lady's dress to

death. This is a curious circumstance

threw a rock which struck : the latter
gentleman upon the side of the head and
inflicted a serious wound. Mr. Seeders
had on a stiff, round topped hat at the
time, und the rock was thrown with
such force as to cut through' the band
and the hat, and cut a deep gash in the
side of his head, from which the blood
poured quite freely. He was not
knocked down by ?he blow, but was
staggered and stunned so that it was
