A Good Telegraph Joke.—A good telegraph joke—good because it is true, the Rochester Advertiser says—occurred in that city a day or two ag»^ A " professional" gentleman had telegraphed to Buffalo to procure the services of a lady star for a brief season, at the National, and received the an. swer through tho name highway of thought.— Opening the communication handed him by the boy, he thought he spied the game of some wag in the matter, and he exclaimed, " You can't fool me; this nin't her writing. I've seen it a thousand times, and this ain't no more like hers than mine is!"—And with a quiet wink at his shrewdness, he proceeded to give direclions about tho stage. The manager had not probably heard that "ihe news is transmitted in a fluid state;" and was as ignorant of the morlus operandi, as a patron of the telegra ph here, who offered a communication commencing, " I now tako my pen in hand, &c." and closing with "My pen la poor, mj ink is palp .

When first seen, the bear was standing upon his hind legs nearly erect—pawing at something on a tree, lie soon cimc down upon "all fours," when Davis fired; the ball struck the animal in the ham and ranged through to the neck . Tiiis was emphatically " a fire in the rear !'* The bear started off with a terrible howl, followed by Davi£, and was killed by a ball in tlic brain, the third shot.

It is not only alleged against- him that he obandondend the city on the night of tho 13lli of Sop. tcmber last, with his army, in a most cowardly manner, leaving the city without protection; but that previous to his leaving, ho robbed the treasury department of all bonds and every other species of available means. And lo easl off all suspicion frnm himself,he then ordered that Ihe prison of the Accordada be opened, and its donvicts let loose upon the community. The hall of the House of Rcprcscntalivcs was entered by them, its chandaliors broken in a thousand pieces, the rich tapestry torn from the windows and strewed abcnit the floor, and the residue of the splendid hall mutilated, if not entirely destroyed.

The Canal is closed at Buffalo, and we have reports that it is also closed at other points. The weather the whole of yesterday was very cold, the thermometer raging at a very low point, the midday aun having scarcely any effect on the snow which fell on Sunday night. At this place the eanul :s still open, and boats arc arriving rapidly. The quantity of produce arriving is very great. and is probable thai in three or four days, should the canal remain open until that time, it will be pretty well cleared of boats. BuUi.T boats clcarod wcstwardly yesterday. An avalanche of produce poured into the b.isin at this city, from the Erie Canal, between 0 A. M. on Saturday and the samohour on Monday. Amongst tho quality were 47,000 bbU. of flour, 52,000 bushels of whcnl, 20,000 bushels oC barley, 20,000 bushels of oats, 360,000 pounds of cheese, and 160,000 pounds of butler.
