DOG FIGHT IN FROGTOWN.
There is an excellent moral to the
following story, which is told with
great skill. It shows us how a vil
liage is sometimes torn to pieces by
a fight between two puppies.
The most remarkable dog fight on
record came off at Frogtown, on the
fronties of Maine, some years ago.
A fanciful genius, named Joe Tuck
er, a man about town,
." a lounger,
without visible means Of supporta
do-nothing, loafing, cigar-smoking,
good natured fellow, owned a dog ;
sleek intellgient, And rather pretty
beast, always at Joe's' heels, "and
known as well as his master, and
liked far more by the Frogtowuers.
One day Joe and his dog were pass
ing Bunion's , gFoCery store ; when 'a
pie-bald ugly looking dog standing
by a wood wagon, bounded on to Joe
Tucker's—knocked him" heels over

wife, who was passing towards her
husband's blacksmith shop with his
dinner, that she stumbled backwards

children on the head, killing it fora
short time, stone dead, and so alarm
ed Mrs. Gumbo, that she draped a
stew pan of boiling hot oysters into
the lap instead of the dish of the cus
tomer who sat waiting for the savory
concoction by a table in, the, corner.
Mrs. Gumbo rushed for the child ;
the customer- for- the door. Mrs.
Gumbo screamed, the child screamed,
and the customer yelled :
"Oh, oh ! oh, oh; oh 1- my poor
child!" cried Mrs. Gumbo.

NATURAL HISTORIES OF BABIES.
Babies are of two kinds, male and
female, and are usually, put up in
packages of one, though sometimes
two, in which case they
twins, when nearly of the same age.
They are not confined to any particu
lar locality, but are' found plentifully
distributed over ail parts of the in
habited countries. Their ages are
various and have a wide range. Wo
have known them as' young as 'Ms
easy to calculate time on swatch dial,
and then again we have seen them
where they have acquired the heal
thy age of 25, with a fair prospect of
'advancing still further to babyhood.
Thelr weight dePends on their heft ;
but as they have twenty.one years to
grow in before it costs them any
thing, it don't matter so much how
big they happen• to be when they
Probably babies._ have more pet
names than any other article of their
size. In the tender 'years of their
life, say the first two, they are lov..
ing:ly ncidressed by such endearing
names as Old Beautiful, Sweetness,
Honeycomb, Rim darling, Papa's
Hope, Old Blessed, Mama's Soy; No
ble Andsome ' supposed to be a, con
tradiction of Old Handsome, and lion
dreds of other appellations which we
'never, could' translate. -
* 'Fot several years, until they could
get old enough to play out of doors
and soil their faces, their lives are dne
long continuous game of Copenhag
en, everybody laboring under the' &-
lesion that all babies are good for is
to kiss, consequently to see one is to
kiss it. We cannot recollect of ever
finding ourself in the presence of a
baby, but what the fond mother would
say to it, "Now be a good little deo,
ry, and give gentleman a nice - sweet
kiss." Of course we accepted it,.
ttf.pugh. kissing ain't our forte,. We.
modestf and! , don 4. are
to - be seen kissing anybody. We
a.,,0 - .:t'Ati'6,:''t:.,-
don, t . It'atiker - after 'it as'some of our
friends do. We are willing to kiss a
pretty girl occasionally for her moth•
er's sake or even for her own, rather
than 'have any trouble, yet we think,
if said pretty. girl .owed us a kiss, we
should much prefer to have it remain
enjraPrest to having it paid when it
became due ;we -never should pre
, sent our bill and demand pay,ment—
net if we continued perfectly sane:—
We understand that there are quite a
number' of persons - WhOdiffer from us
in regard to 'lckgoing ; if so,jet t.hem
.differ„ we cannot stop ',to argue-the
point; zs our shhjecv treats of ba
the monotony of babies' lives -is
varied by such little incidents as' , an
attack . , of, the measles,, mumps, or
eroup,anclwewOulduotnegleet to speak
of cutting teeth.- A btiby that.baslot
84,41571t4r0,agh f,th ese e
tiles, is Considered wortlitneme
haU them , ' in propeq s diseases
afire, liOwPier 4 we'asily t;rPated,,-Und in a.
ease of the Measles, all that is ne.ces
hitry is to have thembretik out well,
and to see to it that they don't strike
in." With the mumps, just let them
"mump" round a day, or two, and
they will come out all right. ' With
the croup it is necessary to "strike
ile," generally "goose and if ap.
plied in season, 'twill soon lubricate
the throat without much trouble.—
Cutting teeth runs longer than either
of the other diseases, yet by a timely
investment of a, rubberlin, and rat
-tie; you. get rid of a 4 cter's bill.—
When we were youtig, we cut ,our
teeth on a silver dollar, but as dollars
are now made of paper, they won't
stand the wear and tear of a whole
_set of teeth, and 'tis cheaper in the
end to invest in the rubber rings.
Learning to walk and talk are two
achievements about which too much
cannotbe said. Thew_ alkingthough
is a mere nothing compared to
talking, yet it is more dangerous,
and accident often occur; still they

bury saw two children answering
their des'cription, on the day of their
disappearance, wandering in the di
rection of Dorchester.
The mystery was solyed-yesterday
hoivever, by the discovery of their
lifeless bodies, bearing nnmistakabie
evidences of a terrible outrage and
:murder. The discovery was purely
accidental, notwithstanding active
and thorough search was in progress
to discover the cause of their absence.
Two BoSton merchants had gone' to
Roxbury for the purpose of recreation
and while strolling through what is
knOwn as Bussey's woods, they were
su.ddenly startled: by discovering the
rnurdered body of the little girl Isa
bella. They at once notified _the
city authorities, who immediately
proeeedeno the scene of the tragedy.
The only means by which the body
could' he identified was the clOthing.
The features which the little one re
sembled 'in life were succeeded by
those of a terrible and painful death.
Upon examination it was discovered
that she had been outraged in 'a fear
ful manner, and frOm the manner 'in
which her e clothing was torn 'it was
apparent that she had violently re
sisted the assaults upon her until
completely- overpowered. After com
pleting their terrible villiany, the
fiends sought to cover up the awful
crime by another scarcely less horri
ble. Murder followed, and this was
accomplished by beating and stab
bing. 'As incredible' as it may seem,
not less than sixteen stabs were in.
Rioted upon her body, mostly' in the
Coroner - Ira Allen an Dr. Arno
were called, and the coroner took
charge of the body. The girl was
only fourteen years of, age, but was
very fully developed, and the appear
ance of being scarcely less than eigh•
After the body bad been identified
as that of Miss Joyce, and the cir
cumstances made known that her lit
tle brother Johnny was also missing,
a search was immediately commenced
to ascertain what had become of him.
The fearful anticipations that he too
had shared the same fate of his mur
dered sister were soon a painful real
ity. After two or three, hours'
searching, his dead body was found
only a few rods from the spot where
his sister bad been outraged and
killed. He was lying upon his.face,
and death had been caused by sever
al stabs inflicted with a dirk or some
similar instrument, in the small of
his back. Appearances indicated
that the w,ounds were inflicted while
running,, and it, is reasonable. to sup
pose that be was being pursued or
driven away by the wretches against
whom he Was feebly resisting to save
the life of his sister. Ile VMS twelve
years of age, two years her junior.
Near the scene of the diabolical
crimes were found several wreaths
of flowers and evergreens, wrought
with great care and taste. They
were apparently engaged in this in
nocent and childish amusement when
set upon by the brutal murderers.—
When they left home each had ten
cents, but only three cents was found
with them yesterday. _They had
probably 'spent - Abe rest to pay their
fare iu the horse cars.
The bodies of both of the deceased
are now in _charge of Coroner Allen,
who will hold an inquest at once.—
There is, of course the most intense
excitement in the, vicinity where the
brutal affair occurred, and mingled
with the expressions 'of ven
geance upon the perpetrators of the
brutal crime, there is also much sym
pathy manifested for the bereaved
parents, who live in Concord street
in this city. That such fiends as per
petrated the horrible deed exist in
this community seems almost incred
ible, and it can but be the hearty de
sire of every good citizen that they
shall be speedily arrested and pun
ished. There is as yet not the slight
est, clue to the authors of the brutal
outrage, but if the adage is true that
"murder will out," it would seem al
most impossible that the wretches
who perpetrated this, double crime
should-escape. A reward of $5OO has
been offered by , Alderman W. W.
Clapp, of Ward Eleven, in behalf of
the citizens of that ward, where the
unfortunate victims resided.
Stir The trial of Jeff. Davis, it is
said, has been postponed until Sep•
tember. - Mark our prediction that if
tried by a civil court, the defence will
get, at, least one postponement, then
the prosecution will ask one, the case
will not go to , a jury within a year
from this date, and Jeff's neck will
not be stretched,

may have been owing tothe fact that
that class of troops, through special

It is well known that the late Abo

to the black soldiers the -same pay,

sions as were enjoyed by the white
troops and besides this, it was or

white and blacks soldiers—thus

What will the negro s

veterans, upon whose shoulders have
rested the burdens of the fight, as an

upon the black ? Are the negro troops
to be the only gainers ? Are they to
receive all the material benefits that
the whites have received, and are
they then to be burnished up with

HOW TO DISPOSE OF YOUR FRACTION
Many persons in business are con
stantly inquiring how to dispose of
surplus quantities of fractional cur
rency, which they find no small an
noyance compared with the "solids"
they were wont to handle in days
gone by. We would inform such the
redemption of'their currency is con
stantly taking place at the Treasury
Department in Washington, and at
the various Sub-Treasuries. In or
der to redeem, it is required that the
currency bo put in packages contain
ing, as nearly as may be, even hun
dreds of pieces, or, in other words,
that each package of five cent pieces
contain $5, of ten cent pieces $lO,
&c., that different varieties of the
lissame denomination of currency be
ent in separate packages, faced uni
formly upwards, and that mutilated
currency be sent separately from the
whole. If the packages of currency
thus arranged are addressed to the
Treasurer of the United States at
Washington, and registered at the
Postoffice, returns by check on New
York may be expected in from eight
to ten days.
ler A Russian soldier recently,
while .enjoying himself at a rustic
ball in one of the Polish villages said
be could put a bullet through a man's
hat at one hundred paces without
touching his head. A peasant ac
cepted the wager, but in order to
foil the marksman, squeezed his hat
so low down over his eyes that the
ball went through bat and bead both,
and left him a corpse on the ground.
The soldier was sentenced to a
month's imprisonment for homicide
by imprudence, but he appealed 'a
gainst his sentence, alleging that the
fault lay with the peasant, and offer
ing at the same time to repeat the
experiment with the judge, provid
ing the.latter did not "bonnet" him
-self so completely. Moniteur de 1'
j Arnzee from which we extract the
Istory, does not inform us whether
the learnivl functionary accepted the
soldier's very liberal offer.
