Santa.

The fellow was captu red, and the owner of the box was for taking his prisoner to the cage; but Santa Anna pro posed that ha should be secured for the hands of tho mithorties. The box was therefore taken away from him, and at the suggestion of the General, he was well tied to a tree, in such a manner that there was no doubt of his security. Tho General seemed, however, to have had some doubts, for he got up more than once during that night to satisfy himself that the fellow was safe. About two o'clock he again left his bed to have another look nt lha prisoner, but lu and behold ! his bird had flown, and what was more surprisi...

Ml ILL BKCIMMMi. LVfpiso nut tlie day of small things. I"liis sentence contains wisdom and philosophy, as well at scripture, ll is very oasy and natu ral to suoor at small beginnings and humblu means, but it is not always wise to do so. It is better to commence on an liumblo scale, and come out in good style at lust, than to suffer a severe collapse afteran extensive and ridiculous flourish. Some mrn will do bettor with a capital of sixpence, limn they would if half the fortune of Astor had been given them to commence with. We have heard it told of a man worth his millions, that he commenced by soiling fruit at a street stall. We have seen boys nt school roll u handful of snow upon the ground, till, by its accumu lated matter, it became so bulky, that a do zen could scarcely movo it. Sands make the mountains, moments make tho year, drops make the ocean ; and so, littlo endeavors, earnestly, unceasingly, and honestly put forth, make tho great men in the world's history. We say, then,...

trorn tlln Philadelphia Ledger of the 28ih tilt. Til It FAJfM Kr.MBLK BITttll IHVORC E CASK. The case of Pierce Butler vs. Francis Ann Butler, a libel for divorce from the bonds of matrimony, came p yesterday before the Court of Common Pleas, Judges King, Camp, bell and Kelly being upon the bench. The libel was filed by the husband, alleging wil ful desertion by the wife from his habitation, Which assertion was averred to have been persisted in for more than two years. To this an answer, covering many pages of pa per, has been put in by the respondent. She denies having wilfully deserted the habila tion of her husband, but she avers to his treatment of her, which has beeh cruel and intended to make life burdensome, and such as to justify her in removing from his house. The answer denies generally the fact of wil ful and malicious desertion as charged in the libel, and avers that she was forced to with draw in consequence of his unlawful and wrongful conduct. It then avers that her a...

SUNBU11Y AMERICAN AND S1IAM0K1N JOUKNAL. COMMUNICATION. For tub American. JOYOUS WINTKn. The Winter President is now sealed in the chair of seasons, and exercises his illimi table sway to the full extent of his own gratification. His cabinet, though chosen out of characters as wild as the untamed elements, obey, with wonderful precision, his dictation. We all feel, already, the change of the new administration, and thoUgh some of us regret the resignation, or death rather, of kind old Autumn, and still more cheerful summer, and drop a sigh over ,the tomb of green foliage and departed flow ers we should not be discontented with sturdy, old Winter. This season brings us joys stout and substantial in such im mense qualities and numbers, that our pen, though made of something strong ns steel, is too weak nay would break, doubtless, with a full recital. The former with plenty, for plenty is his lot invariably, can take his case during the cold season, and enjoy enjoyments peculiar to him...

SUNBURY AMERICAN AND SHAMOKIN JOURNAL.

H. Buehler, in Harrisburg, then ealled Mrs. Buehler's, as the mother of Col. B. was then living, whose kindness and amiable dispo sition will be remembered by all who fre quented her house 5 and more especially if they were on the sick list, or required any attention to increase their comfort. At that time Gen. Heister was Governor of Pennsylvania, and Andrew Gregg Secre tary of the Commonwealth ; Mr. Gregg also made his home at Mrs. Buehler's. It often occurred that gentlemen who stopped at Mrs. B.'s sought Mr. Gregg's company and got him to speak of the early fathers of the Republic, almost all of whom he had seen and known, and to me his re lations of matters and things of "auld lang syne," were very interesting. He had been a warm JefTersonian ;...
