It appears that t!.e gentleman, whose name is at

back, and after having his horse carefully dispos

with the intention of "seeing the sights" of this
delightful inland city. In the meantime the De

him to levy upon the goods and chattels of our in

as to become indebted to a neighbor to the extent
of about five and thirty dollars,) an 1 desirous of
avoiding a visit to the home cf the good natured
gentleman, took forcible possession of his horse in

Btable, whereupon the Doctor considered himself
greatly aggrieved, and wa loud in his exclamation
for "a hofse, a horse," and would gladly have
given his kingdom to have obtained re-possession
of his steed. Being unable to do so, unless pre

of heart until this morning, when slowly and sad
