in 1M1, he iiad the appearance of u
past the middle age. ln person ho was
lame and Mrongly made, and his face ot a
brown hii". with high cheek bones, cave
evidence ol his I art iir origin. His man
tier was dignified, but at the same time
courteous, nnd he had, in a marked degree,
the bearing of one used to co um..nd. atid
to receive respect and deference, lie was
a person of great decision of character. and

with the Ainericin rienipotentiary will

which ho declined all negotiation it

bv the wav, is a remarkable
, fulfilment of n prophesy which hi. made
: on that occasion. It being represented to
him that if we did not go to l'ekiu the
French ini-son would, he replied that it

he would agree to have his head cut. oil'

remember it as it were veslcrdavthe
hour ot noon had arrived, and a frolicsome,
! iiin--eeking troop of school-boys were let j
1 o.-e iot an hour's recreation. i
All id at once tho roaring and bellowing!
of two bull.s, that had broken out of their
ene!o-ure on each sale ofthe river, attract
ed our attention. The animals were not!
et in sight of eat h other, but were np- '.

I hear the centre of the high bridge, which
i I have d. 'scribed, and beneath which, at
some thirty leer, lan the river, between!
steep banks. Tlie more daring of us path-
i-red along the bridge, lining it, to see the I
an' .Cd'Kted ('. lit. We were lnt di.snp
j. tinted. Neaiei- ;nd nearer they Hp-j
I -n ached, th" pr.'iid, jawing cumbatants. t
Uishaii never produced two brulcaol finer
aspect. They la-Led their sides with their
tail-, they tore the ground with their feel.
O' l asioimliy they nelt down, trying to
piie thcearth with their horns. And us
yet they were concealed, each from the
other, by the anient ofthe bridge at either
Pre-ently nr. they simultAneousIy ns
rended tho rerpec'.ivL' ubutmeiits-, they
came in fail sight ot each other. The
roirs wa unit mil and actually tremendous.
Every urchin of us 'prang into tho ti-dds
and ran. Finding, however, that wo were
not juir-'j -d, e hastily retraced our steps.
There tiie were, the ferocious duelists,
i',u. iv as sen.-ibly employed as some ol
tliefr im nan mii'ntors. Front to front,
their horn, locked, every muscle strained,
;:ie were fighting us on ly'tmils trim fight.
It s etii.-d to h- an even match. Now one
would juv.-s iiis antagonist u few juices, and
pre '.-ii 1 v you would hear cpiick, s!i:n j,
short sieps, and presently his adversary
would be pressed back ill return. The
struggling was hard, was long, was sav
age. For a while neither obtained un ad
vantage. Hitherto they bud been pushing each
other lengthwise ofthe bridge; suddenly
they beeau to wheel, and in a moment
were facing each other crosswise. They
were ut li;:iit angles with tlu length of the
L.'itge, which shook, and creaked, and
rocked again with their tramjiiue und
th"ir teiiible strife. It was the worn of a
s.tiple moment; one of the beasts I
co. iid not toll which one of them, how
ever, .is if conciotts of his position, made a
violent, n desperate jdungo forward and
jh'e-.ved Lisun'agonist back buck back
till there Wis but another stepol the ihink
behind him between him and nothing!
The moment was one of intense interest to
us juvenile spectators. Never was the
amjihitheatre of Rome the scene of it more
e truing combat. Another steji back
wark yes, the unfortunate bull was for
ced to lake it ! Back he is pressed, and
over he goes !
Such a sight I never saw I probably
shall never see again. Imagine a bull
jiitched hacked ovei a bridge und tailing
at lca-t tin. ty feet, olc" and over! lie
tut ned once or twice, ju-obably, I thought
he turned fifty times, there seemed such
a confusion ol horns und feet re olving,
li, :ng through tho uir. Rat down he
wjiit ; the w.der was deeji, and he disaji
' pe.ired, leaviiig u "'hirlpool of foam 1 o

; fir and wile with the concussion of his
jioiiJi roils bulk.

Rut v.e iaugiied and shouted our ajipiaute.
't l. ere .stood the victor, looking directly
j down into the abyss below, into which he
' had hui ried his unlucky foe. He stood,
I howevei , b ii a moment, and then, an if
, frightened at the jiro.sjieel, he began to
snort and step backwards. Hack, back,
he retreated, w ith his head in the same
1 pugnacious attitude, as when in combat
I back still another stejj back and over
I he, too, went, on the ojijiosile side of tho
! bridge, performing just so manv ludricious
.somersets) as his adversary nad do:i.j r
mmule before.
It was a scene to remember; and the
performance called forth immense ap
jilause from the grouji of juvenile ama
teurs who witnessed it. In about live
minutes both bulls might be seen, well
sobered by their ducking, dripping wet,
scratching up the steej), gravelly banks,
each on his own side ofthe river. "Those
bulls will never light uny more," said a
boy behind inc. His jireditiou turned out
correct: two more jieaceably disjiosed bulls
than they were, nver afterwards, could not
have been found.

was laid out, coilined, and a buriai certifi

whiskey, tobacco nnn e.i'ablos were dis
cussed loudiy and continually. At about
three o'clock in the morning, however,
when tho cry of lamentation wa at tts
height, the supposed corpse rose tijirigt in
the coffin and demanded "what the divil

affright, when he deliberately got out of

Another Great Event of the Ape.
A pt nious out West, jv tho namo Ot

On the thii the sun rose in tlte
east, and wont on the even tenor of lm
way. The hinges were not completed un
till 2 P. M. Precisely at 3 o'clock t
commenced operations, the jiosta having
been already set. The hinges worked to
a charm, at 2 o'clock tho gate was raised
to its place. It looked majestio, nni
swung magnificently. At twenty minutea
jaist 5 o'clock we elevated our hats into
tlie uir, shot a gopher with two charges,
and whistled a To Dcum to the tuno of
Yankee Hoodie.
The other jiost was then set, and ut 0
o'clock the connection was comjdete, and
signals came through from post to post
with remarkable distinctness. With brow
bared and locks flowing, wo swung it
through buck and forward, thus proving
to those w ho have believed not the reality
of the event, and its cupucity to take such
niesi-iiges through. That pate is a triumph;
it will be a bondof union between the two
fences, a nun thing against hogs, and a
great ov angelizer of those who go through.
It hangs on an 'its easy rimjlioity," and
has already elicited the most vocifetous
approbation. While the Atlantic Cable
binds continents together, our gate binds
the fence in one unbroken string, fratcr
nizing the two in one. At the first swing
of the pate, we forwarded a message to
PiLiidi-nt Buchanan ;
Tur. Ovits, August 31.

A'Iu Cl'stomer. A good many sto
ries ore told of Dr. Thompson, a hotel
keeper of Atlanta, a celebrated joker and
one of the best we give below :
A traveler culled very lnte for breakfast,
the meal wms hurriedly prejiared, Thomp
son feeling that the "feed,, was not quite
uji to themaik, made all sorts of ajiologies
all around the eater, who worked ull iu si
lence, never raising his head beyond the.
affirmative influence of his fork, or by uny
act acknowledging even the presence of
mine host. This sulky demeunor rather
'tlea'd'' the doctor, who changitig tho
range of hi.i battery, stuck his thumbs iu
his vest arm holes, expanding Lis chest
by robbing tho room of half its air, and
said :
"Now, Mister, dod durn mo if I Tiavn't
made all theajiology necessary, an' more
too, considering the breakfast and who
gets it ; and now I ti 1) you, I have seen
dirtier, worse cooked, worse tasted and
worse looking and of a sight smaller
breakfast than this several times."
The hungry one, meekly laid down hi
tools, swallowed the bite in transitu, jila
ced the (mini of his hands together, and
modestly looking up ut the vexed and fu
ming landlord, shot him dead with the
tullo.ving words :
"Is what you say true ?"
'Yes, sir,' came with a vindictive
Well, then, I'll bod , hoss, if you
