SiSLfeCT TALE. From the Dublin University Magazine THE DSJBL How I became acquainted with the circumstances I am about to narrate, or when they occurred, the reader must not mquiie. I have taken the liberty of arranging the incidents, so that their narration will afford no clue whatever to the solution of those questions. The read* cr must be content to accept of the assurance of an old friend, that the narrative of this chapter is a true account'of events which, to my own knowledge, did actually occur, Ellen Irving was the only child of a clergyman, well known and respected in the neighborhood of Dublin—a man distinguished in the church by every quality calculated to ensure popularity and command respect, he filled for many years a prominent position in the publiceye.

Another was placed in the Episcopal palace of Kulham, by bishop Laud, in 1G26, and died in 17:>i—125 years. How eld they .were when placed in the gar Jen was unknown. From a document belonging to the cathedral, called the Bishop's Barn, it is ascertained that the tortoise at Petersborough must have been 220 years old. Bishop Marsh's predecessor in the see of Peterborough had remembered it above GO years, and remarked no visible change. He was the seventh bishop since it sojourned there. Its favorite food wac the flower of the dandelion lettuce, green pease, &c . In the latter part of June it inclined to eat strawberries, currants, and the like.

Juvenile Swindling. A uoy nuout l-i years ol age named ,/ames Wily, a native of Connecticut, and remarkably cute, was charged and committed ot the tower police office "n .Sat-, nrday, with attempting to gull some green ones of Gotham, by practising upon their cupidity, in the following fashion. After Lavatering the physiognomy of his intended dupe, he would slily place a counterfeit sovereign in the pathway, and when he saw it had attracted attention, he would suddenly spring forward and pick it up. His cupidious dupe would then exclaim "that's mine." "I guess not," says the boy, "Its mine any how you ean fix it. I found it, and I kalkelate upon keeping it." After some parleying the boy allows himself to be persuaded that it does belong to the person laying claim to it, aru' on condition that he is to be paid a dollar he hands it over to the dishonest claimant.- The boy soon disappears, and the dupe vv^nds his way chuckling and rejoicing at lb? way :n which lie had obtained ...

Horrible Cafatiti'opttc! * rum yesterday's N. V. Whisc We have just heard that a horrible ca tastrophe attended yesterday's parade. 1'iie troops were returning home ;iloug thella-lein road. About dusk a carman was observed coming from town bv the soldiers towards Harlem. When " some yards before them .he lashed his horse with fury, which galloping with impetliosity,dashed through the 3d legiment into about the middle of the 9th. About 5;; of the soldiers, it is said, were overturned and two are reported as having been killed. The soldiers, infuriate, drew swords and stabbed the wretched carman in sev oral places, and in the tfunfusion some slabbed each other. Alderman Hall, he commander, proceeded to the place, an.I prevented the carman's being slain on i!.. spot, and officers /Jose and Jones proceeded with him to the Upper Police, where he was handed over to medical aid, but his life is despaired of. His name is Michael Dalby.

ISettiim on the Election. There is no more wicked practice than bitting on the elections. Wicked for two reasons—It is in direct violation of tho laws of the Commonweal lb—and tends more than any other thing, to infuse into the contest a spirit ot bitterness and contention which ill becomes nei ghbors, and friends. It is the easy besetting sin Of too many, even ourselves connot plead entirely guiltless. But we have done, our resolution is made and we trust that we shall have firmness enough to slick to it,—and we. do hope, that out Legislature will devise some plan, if possible to wholly prevent the practice. Too such however, as have made bets' we say give them up, such as are clearl y won, for if there is anything mean and dishonorable in the world, it is that man who bets and wilt not lose, because he will not pay—Such always willingl y (uAe anj bet they win, and thus they have the game all in their own hand.
