Tho many ingenious devitee;to evade the

of writing on the margin of ,an old paper to
bis. father, to saye letter, postage. . When ar
rested by the application of the provisions
of tVe act of 1825; he adopted a1 species' of
singular hleroglypbics. His object was to
let.hie'.falher know his family werei well,
and would be up in a few days so he sent
a newspaper win nothing but his name
written on It. He had pencilled on 'the
margin' aac $imilic of m 'eaddler's awl
