school The young man and the
teacher were passing by the post-
office, when they were confronted by
the goat Sir William .bed them
up from in front, bit his mustache,
and then gave them the right of way.
He got behind them and slowly fol
lowed them up a few paces, when he
brought his four feet together, low
ered hb head, and made for the
young man like a sky rocket. He

tremendous thump from behind, and
then the two had it The young man
turned to defend himself and the re

self and the goat for the mastery.
They locked horns, so to speak, but
as often as the young man would re
lease hb grip, the goat would take a
running start and come into him
again like a battering ram. They
scuffled all over the pavement for
about five minutes, when Mr. Pick
Morse came to the rescue. - He got
the goat down and. held St until the
beseiged party . had reached Mr.
George Wilson's corner, and then he
turned the animal loose. ' The 'goat
gave Dick one disdainful look and
then put out in pursuit of the objects
of hb attack. The bellieerant ani

and renewed the attack, and Mr.
Morse once more went to the rescue.
This time he held Billy until the coast
was entirely clear, and the objects of
bis wrath were out of sight. Theaflair
created considerable amusement, and

Cspt & B. Alexander says that
he was not quite fully understood b
yesterday's interview, in regard to
the Senatorship. The chief cause of
complaint was against certain news
papers (0 the State that garbled ex
tracts from his first interview with
the editor of the morning paper. Ia
that interview the reporter states ex
plicitly that the Captain said that "if
the Legislature ai opposed to Ran
som, the field was open to anybody."
I lis report a as garbled, and as soon
as the editor of the Chronicle's aiten
tion w;j called to it, he wrote an
article on the Sen.itorthip to correct
that Imjirwaion. . j
