stwad seems to have occass - ql much
altsrut among the dog tribe, and several
highly-prized animals made their est:ape
from town, and, have not 'duce- returned.—
One dog tragedy in fact occurred. A valu
able Netvfimindland dog -bad followed his
master from Ross-shire on the day in ques
tion, and frolicked about, seemingly enjoy
ing himselff, until the cannon opened mouth,
when the poor animal set off homeward in
full gallop,:showing every mark of extreme
terror. Atliessock, he Was seta to spring
from the pier and attempt to swim the ferry
which is at least half a mile broad. The
dog swam nobly until le had almost reach
ed the. other side; then, however, the strong
current over-mastered him, and though the
ferry-boat was nut far behind, the animal
sank before be could be rescued. Fish, it
is well known, 'always sink ling deep wit
