Beneath Ihesp fetters sbalt repining bow,

No striving for what hangs thy grap high o'er,

ANECDOTES OF DOGS.
A .SitEPHEitD'tjDoo.-A friend of otir's
who owns a hu-frc raiichniHl several hiin
drftl hptid of .sheep, is tho fortunate pos
sessor of ono oftliehet dogs in this
State. Tlio Intelligent creaturo was
brought up among the sheep, nourished
upon ewe's milk, his whole lifo being
pa-ed with tho Hock and devoted to its
defence. He has hecn taught to open
and shut the fold into which they nro
driven at Might, and ho cares for them
with sill thoapparent thoughtfiilnessthat
a human creature could display. In tho
morning, when tlio flock is driven to
the field, ho goes with it, selects some
commanding place, and watches tho
sheep during the whole day, driving up
the stragglers, and allowing no ono but
thoe with whom ho is acquainted to
approach them. Should a owo drop a
lamb and pavi on with tho herd with
out noticing it, ns sho sometimes will,
he has boon known to take care of it.
At night he drives the sheep into the pen
fasteni the door after him, mid seating
himself in their midst, lays there watch
ing them all night, Tn tho morning he
unfastens the door, drives out his ciiargo
to tho pasture, and keeps watch and
ward until nigiit comes, in lact, so
faithful is ho, that his master.frequcntly
absents himself from the ranch, for days
together, with perfect reliance upon
his dog to find all safe when ho returns,
A Doti's MEMoitv. Tlio memory of
dog is quite extraordinary, and only
equalled by that of tho elephant. Jtr.
Swainsou, in his work on tho instincts
of anlmiiN, gives tho following proof of
till". I k says that "n spaniel belonging
to tho Rev, J I X , being always
told that lie must not follow his ma.ter
to church, on Sundays, used, on tho.-e
days to set oil' long before tho service,
and lie concealed under tho hedge, so
near tlio church, that at lengtli'tho point
was yielded to him." My little parlor
dog never offers to go witli me on a Sun
day; although on other days ho is per
fectly wild to accompany me on my
walks. In my younger days I bail a
favorite dug which always accompanied
mc tochurcli, My mother, seeing that
he attracted too much of my attention,
ordered tiieservant to shut him up every
Sunday morning. This was done once,
but never afterward ; for lie concealed
hlm-elf early every Sunday morning, , uarty only took III- own dog,sei.ing her
and 1 was sure to find him either under i the street. Mr. M'Carthy was there
in. v -eat at church, or elo at tlie church foro subjected to a searching ero-t-oxum-do'or.
That dogs clearly di-tinguishtlie inntion on this point, but ho te-titled,
return of Sunday cannot bo doubted. with great deliberation, that ho pur-AnenJuli-s

Judge, etc Aro Dogs Property ? In re
tho People vs. Dennis Campbell. This
caso camo up this morning, nnd is of
great interest to tho owners of that pop
ular nnimal, tho dog. In tho March
term of this Court, Dennis Campbell
was Indicted forsteallnga valuable New
foundland dog Worth $.")0, tho property
of Gerard S. Underbill.
There was not much doubt that Den
nis had taken tho Newfoundland, but
ho, having gone to a gentleman learned
in tho law, was Informed that dogs were
not proporty,and that "prigging" them
was no oll'ence; so Dennis instructed
his legal adviser to put in a demurrer.
That instrument was argued before tho
Court, and this morning tlio Judge de
livered a long, nnd of course elaborate
opinion upon tlio question, "Aro dogs
property'."' His Honor having made
researches into the earliest archives of
tho common law of England, was of
opinion that in tho good old times dogs
wero not property, but by tho march of
intellect, their condition had been im
proved until a law bad been passed by
tho State Legislature of Now-York for
tlio protection of domestic animals.
This act his Honor thoughtincltided tlie
dog ns a domestic animal, and having
so construed the statute, ho should givo
judgment for the people on the demur
rer, and the defendant must plead guil
ty or not guilty to the indictment.
A Doo Case in Couut. Mr. Koger
Prosecutes Mr. Garharty for Stealing.
Tlio three justices who preside in Special
Sessions wero largely occupied, a few
mornings since, in hearing and deter
mining tho merits of a complicated dog
ca-o, in which James Uogers, of Thirty
sixth street, appeared ngninst Michael
Garharty, on a cbargo of larceny.
Mr. ltogcia sets forth that about six
month ago Patrick M'Carthy, acting
as ills agent, purchased of Garharty the
brutes in question, a "female dog" and
puppy, for $ lrr" ; that tho old bruto alone
was worth $20, and that tho reason the
prisoner soltl out so cheap was that ho
then intended to return to Ireland
r urtiierinore, that about six weeks ago
Garharty, assisted by three men, stole
tho animal he had sold, while Itogers
and tlio dog were in tlie street, thus se
curing botlt the price money and tlio
brute. Mr. Itogers, deeming this an un
fair proceeding, prosecuted for theft.
Having sworn to those facts in Court,
lie brought forward Patrick M'Carthy,
a retired butcher, who testified that ho
bought tho animals in dispute for Mr.
Itogers, anil paitl $1 73 for the two, and
that Garharty treated in tlio bargain.
Mr. Spencer, the prisoner's counsel, set
up tho defence that the young bi utconly
was soltl, and that tlio maternal brute
was lent only for a short time; that Itog
ers refused togive her up, and that Gar-
py munu wus nm lunui si . uu hus
scqiiontly tcstlled that ho had sold six
or seven dogs himself ; whereupon Jus
tlco Urownell propounded tho following
"You say, Mr. M'Carthy, that you
never bought n dog in your life, but that
you have Mild six or seven. Now I want
to know where you got thoso dogs you
au old thief. Furthermore, that M'Car
thy ottered to go with Garharty and help
get tho dog, nnd actually did go In com
pany with Garharty ami himself, and
was present when Garharty took tho
dog, It was further proven for tlio de
fence that tho prl-oiier was a man .of
good character, ami tho Court discharged
him. Ho left amid tlie congratulations
of his friends. Mr. Itogers, with u

ho had put thcsmallcnd below tho door,

K. Derry, n boy thirteen years old, while
out berrying on Monday, was attacked
by n "six foot snake of a dark lulu and
red stripe around his neck," which
wound twico around the boy's body,
fastening both arms in his coils. The

rushed to his aid, biting and tearing u

Some Doo. A gentleman left lloly-

in a buggy, taking a favorite dog with
him. As they progressed toward Willi-

by plaguing tlio dog until ho had got
tlio animal into a .statoof complete wor

down after remaining suspended for 20
minutes, nnd wns delivered to tho un

maintained throughout tho execution
the samo stoical Indifference which had
characterized him during his trial aud
Tho prisoner made tho following con
fession prior to his execution :
" I am twenty-six yenrs of nge, and
was born nt Plymouth, In Luzerno coun
ty, Pa.; I followed canal business until
tho beginning of tho war; had no op
portunity for school education or relig
ious Instruction ; enlisted in tho army;
deserted eight times, nnd was sentenced
to ho shot ; at Gettysburg I deserted
again; then camo homo; I robbed Rob
ert Abbotts, who lives on tho plains, of
$700 ; I then robbed n shoo storo at
Blindtown." After mentioning a num
ber of other robbories ho continued :
' On tlio Hth of April lnt, I went with
two others to tho liouso of Mr. Hunger-
ford, opened tho door by n secret lntch,
and walked to the bed, but I had no
pistol ; I told tho old man I wanted his
money ; I demanded the key of hu
trunk; tho three with mo in tlio menu
timo built n firo, nnd cooked suppor;
wo only inndc S130 on that operation.
(The prisoner hero laughed.) After that
wo went to Wyoming county, nnd en
tered the liouso of Henry Kllsworth nnd
opened tho door nnd went in, but only
got $2 oh, yes, and managed to got nil
overcoat ; went into nnother liouso with
pistol ; tbero wero three of us ; wo
went into the bedroom ; there was n
mnn nnd his wife there ; I told them to
keep quiet ; wo only got n wntch anil
chain there. (The prisoner again laugh
ed.) We then went to tlio house of
iVbraham Ityman, his daughter was In
bed ; we searched tho bureau, but found
nothing nnd left. (Tho prisoner then
made n statement nbout the murder,
saying nbout this affair :) This girl, flvo
or six years ago, worked in n machlno
shop ; I went into tho nrmy ; when I
returned I found her destitute, nnd I
pnld her bonrd and kept her at a placo
called Blindtown ; what sho wanted I
provided her with until six or eight
months ago ; she wns In the hnbit of
seeing other men ; I wns not spnrklng
her; I did not enro much for her; on
tho morning of the shooting I went
tbero before daylight ; opened tho back
door and went to sleep ; slept there un
til Miller got up, when ho pushed mo
nnd snid, 'you devil, you?iro ngnin here.'
I then got up and went to Miller's bed ;
at eight o'clock Mary Fraco camo to tho
house nnd I got up; I jumped up with
a knife in tills hand, which I was play
ing with ; I stuck the knife in the table,
and then put It in my pocket; I toro
my coat doing so; Mrs. Miller then
offered to mend my coat, In. doing so
she found my revolver; I told her to
let it alono ; I did not want to injuro
this woman, M'Klweo ; my revolver had
only three loads in; I pointed it at Miss
Fraco in fun ; I did tlio samo to Mrs.
M'Kl wee ; I thought the pistol was only
half-cocked ; I did not intend to murder
her, thinking that tho barrel or tho
pistol I snapped was empty ; this is ull
I know of tho affair.
