I®* A locomotive recently ran away on
Uie West Cornwall line in England. The
throttle-valve haying been inadvertently
left open, and a fire kindled in the fur
nace, the attendant went away for a few
moments; oh his return it had left town,
and only ran . out of breath at a station
some sixteen miles distant, having rushed
down some steep inclines, and-ever sharp
curves, at the rate of sixty miles per hour.
It tore up and smashed through a large
number of gates, but with this exception
did no damage.-whatever, and was quietly
led back to its stall without paving been
made permanently vicious in its tricks, in
which particular it manifested another de

Female in the Ring.— A disgraceful
exhibition took place near New York on
Tuesday, between two boys named Pardee
and Odell, each about seventeen yearn old,
having engaged in a prize fight for $2O,
in the presence of about one bunded spec
tators. On the sixth round Qdell knock
ed his antagonist down, leaving him in
such a condition, that he coaid not come
to the scratch when time was called. At
this Pardee’s mother, who was on the
ground, became so exasperated ’ that she
sprang into the ring, and expressed a de
sire to fight the victor herself. The cry
being raised that the police were coming,
all hands took to their heels.
the for the preservation
of plum trees from the ravages •of an in
sect that sometimes does great damage :
Take a tin pail, punch holes through
the bottom, adjust it to a pole that will
.reach above the top of the tree, fill the
pail with air-slackedlime, and hold it
above the tree, in the morning before the
dew is off, strike lightly on the pole,
sprinkling the lime ’Over' the tree. Re
peat this "operation, say about three times,
and your plum crop is safe. Curculidwill
not work where lime is.
BQfe. During the shower on Wednesday
afternoon, says the Newport (N. H.) Re
publican, the lightning struck the house
occupied by hlrs. Ebenezer Hazleton, Su-
Jaapee. Mrs. H. was standing near the
stove when the lightning struck the chim
ney, descended, split -the stove in pieces,
and instantly killed Mrs. Hazleton. She
was about sixty-five years of age. . About
six years ago a son of -hers was killed on
the Railroad, goon after a ne
phew was drowned,"five years ago her hus
band took his own life, and now the wife
mid mother, by a violent death, is sent to
meet her kindred in eternity.
Another Wabnik<i.— -The Fort Ma
dison Pldindefar, of t\& 28fh, reports a
and sudden death that occurred near f ar
mington, 'Van Ruren county, a few days
previous. A farmer living thCfej while
taking' to a neighbor, about the dry wea
rier, began ah outburst of the meet terri
ble blasphemy, using the vilest epithets
tdwariHhe Ahnighty and Ae Saviour, be
cause He did not send raijn. The man
was going .on in ftrightful language, whop
all at once his jaws became pamlyzed, ms
tongue became poiwerless, his voice ceaaet
and ho fell on the earth a corpse. :
jglu At Farmington, lowa, last Sunday,
a little girl four years old was carried by a
sudden gust of wind and lodged in n cher
ry tree a few rods distant, her c\otbies ha
ving caught in the branches of the tree,
where she remained unhurt. The anxious
father ran to and fro seeking her, yrheu
the little innocent, dripping with nun,
peeped down through the branches of the
cherry tree, exclaiming—“ I’m here, pa."
I®, The greatest trot ever made was
accomplished by the gallant bay mare,
? Flora Temple," on the Union Course,
Long Island, on Wednesday last, in a con
test with a famous bay horse called “ Geo.
■M. Patchen." - The race was closely con
tested, but Flora won each mile heat, the
tijfts beipg 2.21; 2.24 and 2.215, respec
tively. The first; heat is said, to'be the
beat time ever made on that course.
A temble accident occurred in the town
of Delhi, Beleware county, NeW*£ork, a
week ago, which resulted in the 3t»tbof
a little girl seven years old. The parties

other end to the cows tail. When the
cow had proceeded a..short distance in

gabled and fell, which so frightened,

An, Awful Wabnihg.—We decently
heard related the particulars of an Qoour
rence which can only be- looked ’upon *3
an instance of Divine rebuke for taking
the name of the Almighty in justification!
of a falsehood., We suppress the, naraep\
and localities of die parties, who are
spectable persons. It appears that the
aunt of a young girl about eighteen years
of age, accused her of having been guilty
of some misconduct, which she positively
denied, and on being again accused, she
called upon God to strike her blind if she
was not telling the truth. In a moment
after, according to her own statement, a
film seemed to pass before her eyes, and in
five minutes she was totally blind, and has
continued sightless ever since. The afflic
ted victim of her own impiety confessed
that she had called upon (her Maker to
justify her in what was a falsehood. May
not this be. considered as a terrible instance
of Divine wrath, and may not the thoughts
less take warning?— Balt. Clipper.
A Coubageous Woman.— Wednesday,
night, about 11 o'clock, a woman named
Jane Manahany wife of Philip Manakau,
of Boston* bavjng laid down in her sleep
ing room to await her huspand’s. return,
heard a noise in the roomy and on arising,
discovered a burglar in the act of securing
such valuables as he his hands
on. Without screahting, or manifesting
the least alarm,, she sprang for him, but
he. took to his legs and ran down stairs.—
She pursued him, caught him, and, on his
attempting to knock her down, gave him
a severe whipping, him se
verely about the face. She then made him
sit down on a chair, and kept him there
half an hour, till her husband’s return,
when officer Kinsley was called in, and he
was arrested. He was a stout-looking
young fellow, and gave the name of James
McColHon. ' ‘
ISu Sam Slick says: Yes, yes, nature
balances all things admirably, and has put
the sexes and every individual of each.on
a par. Them that have mor&than their
share of one thing commonly have less of
another. When there is great strength
there ain’t apt to he much gumption.. A
handsome man in a general way ain’t
much of a man. A beautiful Bird seldom
. pings. Them that has genius have no
common sense A fellow with one idea
grows rich, while ho who calls him a tool
dies poor. The world is like & baked
meet pie; the upper crust is rich, dry and
puffy j the lower epost is heavy, dodghy
and undone; the middle is not bad gen
erally j hut the smallest part of all is that
which flavors the whole.
Coroeess to Adjouen.— Both houses
of Congress have made up their minds to
adjourn on the 18th inst, Cengresshas
been in session over six months, and du
ring that period they have discussed sla
very daily in some, form or other, and
have done but little else in regard to any
great practical question of general; inter
est. The Presidential canvass requiring
them, they now adjourn,, andtransfer to
the stump the discussions which! have oc
cupied their time in Washington so long.
There will be one advantage in this ad
journment. The newspapers will pot be
filled with their speeches,' and the public
may have something else to read and think
about than slavery. >
