In January last, says the Leaven worth Commercial, John Wilson, a lad about sixteen years of age, left his home on Musquito Bottom, in compa ny with his father and two neighbors, for the purpose of hunting buflalo on the upper Arkansas. The weather was all that could be wished, game was found in abundance, and the hunters secured as much as their teams were able to haul - back so long a distance, and on the morning of the 10th pre parations were made for a return home. Not so, however, with young Wilsr-n who had become enchanted with the wild scenes and wilder sports. Tollim it was a newlife of which he had often read, but had now become a living ac tor in its fascinations. To the left of the river.aud beyond the skirt of tim ber in which the hunters were encump stretched the unbroken plain,on which, within range of vision, quietly grazed a small herd of bufluln, aud here and there scattered groups of antelopes. At this sight our young hunter became excited, and only "one more shot" be fore departing was agreed upon. Shoul dering his gun, he started out, and was soou lost to view as he picked his way quietly along the river bat-k and tim ber. Nothing further was thought of the young man's whim by the father and his companions who were cooking ra tions for the return trip and peaceful ly smoking their pipes. Young Wildon found the distance to the game much further than he antici pated, but on getting within long range shot, his presence was discovered, and a general scamper was the result. Noth ing daunted, he continued the chase, fully determined on the last shot and a dead buflalo. Onward he went over the plain, through wood and thi iket, regarless of all impediments; but four legs could wander' farther than two, aud he was left far in the rear. Time elapsed, unheeded by him ; night was upon him ; for the first time he realiz ed that he was alone upon the vast plain, his game beyond hut reach, and companions he knew not whether. His reckoning was lost, and he stood be wildered. To add to his misery, one of those fierce winds, go common in that section, came up, and with it a driving, blinding sleet, transforming him into a walking icicle. Cold aud benumbed he started, as he supposed, for the wood along the ravine, but instead, traveled from it now hastening now slackening his pace as the cold affected him. At length he came upon a small clump of bushes, under which he took shelter, sat down, and was soou ahcep and lost to his lonely position. The boy not returning in a reasona ble time to the camp, his father and companions became uneasy, and set in search of him. Guns were fired, In dian whoops and yells indulged in to the full extent of their lungs, but no answer came in response. The same was continued throughout the night, and large fires were kindled on the hig'iest eminences in hope of attract ing his attention, but all in vaiu. Morning came, yet with it no boy. The day elapsed in fruitless search, followed by auother night of demon strations similar to those of the first. The angu'.sh of the parent in this ex tremity was almost unbearable. To go buck without his sou be could not, for there, too, was an anxious mother fouudly awaiting their return from the hunt. On the third day, after fully deliber ating on it, the party concluded to re turn home, form compauics of their neighbors, and make a grand search for the boy on the pains. Awakening from his sleep, through a feeling ot coldness, young Wilrjuii looked out upon the dreary waste be froe him. The wind still bowled, but the sleet had subsided. His irozeu clothes cla'uked about his body as he arose and picked up his gun. He now fUlly comprehended his situation, aud bis first thoughu were of his friends and something to eat. To choose hit course puzzled him, yet no time was to lost. lie plucked from one of the bushes a twig, sat it on eud, and iu his bovUl) way resolved 00 going l'e dire& tiou it might fall. As the result will 'show it fall in tb oppositr direction Republican in that Faith 1st us to the end, PA., TUESDAY, MARCH 7, 1871. from which his friends were, and he wandered farther and farther away. For procuring food, his gun was now his only reliance, aud as he trudged along, a sharp look-out was kept up for game. The first day out, nothing in the game line presented itself, but on the econd a small herd of buffalo, on which he fire(l,passed him. His shot was wide of the mark, and they were soon away. So passed the third and fourth days. Weaken 'd by hunger and fatigue, he nevertheless, kept up good courage, and hoped that if he did not find friend?, he at least might fall in with other hunters or Indians, frieudly or otherwise, he did not care much which, so long as his scalp was safe and a prospect of replenishment of his vacaut stomach offered. On the morning of the fifth day he came to a small stream, skirted by a a few scattering trees. Here he gather ed up some broken limbs, and pulled out from beneath the roots, dry grass enough to start a fire. This he did by firing off his gun and blowing the wad into a blaze, which soon grew into a warming fire, by which his frozen clothes were thawed out and himself warmed. By this time he was too hungry and worn out to proceed much further, and he resolved on keeping up his fire through the day and night. While so engaged, late in the evening, he was suddenly startled by a gruff "How 1" and a big dirty Indian stood before him, with a gun on his back and the hind quarters of an antelope. "Bully!" replied Wilson, as he sprang to his feet and rifle, "how your self!" and he gazed in .tbtonitdiment at the intruder. TTie Indian comprehend ed the situation, proffered him a por tion of his meat, and they sat down together, roasted and ate raveneusly of it. The heat and food livened him up, and he soon ascertained that a band of friendly Indians wets encamped a few miles below. To this camp the two repaired, and Wilson waa welcomed kind'y and fed for three days, when enough provision was given him to reach the settlements. His course was pointed out,, and he started on his homeward jotrrney. He traveled three days, when he fell in with his futher and his friends, who were returning to renew, the search for him. The meet ing was a joyous one, and young Wil son is content with "onlv one more shot 1" A Nice Point. A fellow earned Donks was lately tried at Yuba, California, fur entering a miuer's tent aud stealing a batr of gold-dust valued ut $84. The testimo ny showed that he had once been em ployed there, and knew exactly where he kept hi& dust; that on the night specified he cut aslit iu the tent.reach- in, took the bag, and ran off. The principal witness testified that ho saw the hole cut, saw the mau reach in, end heard him run away. "I rushed after him at once," continued the wit ness, "but when I caught him I didn't find Bill's bag, but found it al'tei wards where he had thrown it." "How far did he get when he took the dust?" in quired the counsel, "Well, he was stoopin over half way iu, I should say, replied the witness. ".May it please your honor," interposed the counsel, "the indictment is t'i sustained and I shall demand an acquittal on di rection of the court. The prisoner is on trial for entering a dwlling iu the uight time, with inteut to steal. The testimony is clear that l e made an opening through which h protruded himself about half way and stretched out his arms and committed the theft. But the indictment charges that he act ully entered the tent or dwelling. Now your Honor, can a man euter a house when only one-half of his body is in and the other half out?" "I shall leave the whole matter to the jury. They must judge of the law, and the fact is proved," replied the judge. The jury brought in a verdict of "guilty as to one-half of his body, and not guilty as to the other half." The judge sen tenced the guilty purl to two yeurs' imprisonment, having it to the prison er's option to have the innocent part cut off, or to take it aloug with him.

One Touch of Nature. There are certain profound and nor mal elements in human nature, which become crystalized in poetry or fable, and are thus found, iu slightly differ ing shape, scattered through all peri ods of history and all strata of society. Every one has heard of Sir Philip Sydney refusing the draught of fair-water in favor of a wounded soldier, and williin a few days we have heard the story of a dying naval commander who, in the inid?t of his agony, thought to seud an order for a blanket to a seaman in place of the one hastily snatched for his pillow of pain. The following extract, from the Courtier du Bat-lihin (.through the medium of its American name-sake), gives the same theme in a new but very touch lug shape. It does not greatly con cern us to inquire into the historical accuracy of this or of its companion anecdotes. The Itallians have a pro verb, Se non e vero e ben trovato, which might be freely translated : "If it is not true it deserves to be." So with the present extract, the beauty and es sential truth of the scnt.ment may well close our eyes to the investigation of its merely literal verisimilitude. It would be unkind as well as unphiloso phic to question that such incidents may have happened, and probably,still happen, whether at Metz in the year of grace 1780 or no. Neither is its pub lication open to the charge of F anco mania. Tro Tyriugve; the feeling in volved is humanitarian, not local, and will awake a responsive throb under the blue tunic of the Landicehrmann as under the green frock of the chasseur d Afrique. But to the story. "On the 8th of October the chloro form began to give nut at Metz. A few local druggists had tried to make it; but the product was not fit for use, and the real article was scarce. At ho temporary hospital of the polygon reu ul), where I was on duly, we had hardly a litre and a half left. As we did not known how long the siege might yet last, it was our urgent duty to be sparing with it. On the morning after the fight, at Ladonchamps, there was a terrible influx of wouuded, and we had our hands full. "A chasseur of the guard is brought into the operating room, with his hand badly shattered. It is found necessary to take off the bone to which the little finger is attached the fifth metacar pal. The mun comes in ou foot, still holding fust his gun, which he carries slung over his back. 'Well, my good friend, we shall have to have a bit of an operation.' 'I know it, major ; that's what I'm here for.' 'Would you like to be made inseusi bler 'Oh, dear, yes. I'vesuffcied so much all night that I don't think I could stand it.' .

Mabel Grey has died of consump tion, and London mic-es a celebrity better known than the thousands of virtuous and titled women who passed her carriage on Rotten Row with avert ed head, and whose appearance was as attractive to the multitude as that of the Princess Alexandria herself Her portrait in the shop windows claimed precedence of that of the Bishop of Oxford. She had a dozen Peers in her train, at one lime was en gaged to marry the heir of one of England's oldestdukedoms, aud num. bered the naughty Prince of Wales among her admirers. For three or for years Mabel Grey has held undis puted sway as queen of the demi monde, a long reign for the sovereign of that unstable kingdom, the glory of tho concert hall, the unapproachable deity of all tho cads of London, the favorite affectation of the golden youth. How well she played her part is shown by the fact that only a liberal annuity sufficed to buy her off from the pur suit of a young and foolish nobleman of high -rank, who had promised to marry her. The good mothers will feel easier now that she is finally re moved from her wicked conquests, but the poor to whom she was as generous as if she had been virtuous, and more so, will be the only mourners of Mabel Grey. "Scat." John Beaty is a lover. He bows be fore the schrine of bright ey is and ro sy lips ; but being subject to the paren tal lnterdict.his interviews a1 e clandes tine. A few evenings since he was paying court to his uulcinea. She had smuggled him into the parlor, and the darkness only served to conceal her blushes while John told the story of his love. The muttered words reached the parental ear, and coming suddeuly in to the roorn he demanded to know of Mary who it was she had with ber. "It's the cat, sir," was the numbling re ply, "Drive it out of here," thunderd paterfamilias. "Scat ("screamed Mary and then sollo voce: ("John, growl a little,") John set up a woful yowl. "That cat's got a cold" remarked the parent. John yowled louder than ever. "Confound it bring a light, and scare the thing out." This was too much, and John made a leap for the window, carrying glass and frame with him. "Thunder! what a cat?" said the pa rent, contemplating the ruin after the light was brought : "I never saw any thing like it, and confound it, its tail is made out of broadcloth," as he viewed a ilutteiing rcmnaut hanging from the wind. One of the London Timet' cor respondence relates au incident illus trating the utter demoralized con dition of Chanzy's army. Two dra goons found themselves surrounded aud about to be taken prisoners by some thirty Mobiles. One of them talked a little French, and one of the French soldiers was an Alautiau who could speak German ; there was thus no difficulty iu communicating. The dragoons refused to surrender on an entirely new aud original ground. "If we go with you," said they, "we shall shate your discomfort; but if you come with us you will share our com fort and escape all the danger and hardships oi uie war. uu too nuu.s you will gain more by letting us take you than by making prisoners of us." This reasoning proved irreisstible, two dragoons rodo back to their reg meut wkh their thirty Mobiles follow ing them like sheep. The Grand Duke was so much pleased with the readiucss thev had displayed upou the occasion, that he made each of them a baud some present, which one of them was not distiiied long to enjoy, for he was shot dead a few hours later. When Horace Greeley traveled in Europe he was impressed with the valuo of drainage,, and immediately got up an antethelical agricultural nroverb to the effect that if a man didn't drain bis farm, his farm would dran him. Then Horace went to Lorn bardy, where he witnessed the fructify ing influence of Irrigation by means of dams; whereupon he added another proverb to his store of terse sayiugs: "If a mau don't dtun-his farm, bis farm will 4 him."- ; Rates of Advertising.
