A Laov's Stratagem.—The Boston Atlas translates the Tjllowing story from the Paris Siecla. It is a good story enough, lint we would not advise the rcador to be very pertinacious in believing it: One of Ihe dangers at Ostcnd most to be guarded against, arc the professed gamblers. During the seasons of tho carnival and lent, these knightB of the green cloth keep themselves at Pur is; but. when Summer comes they scatter themselves nil over Europe. They follow the fashion, and tread in the footsteps of its gilded votaries; they navigate, at full sail, in all the maratime and mineral waters of Europe. This year these birds of prey have spread in large numbers over Belgium. They have already made some strokes; they speak of a Russian who was pillaged, in a single uight, of two hundred thousand francs and who paid it the next day, apologizing for having made them wait. In these watering places, whero the hells are under no regulations, tho incxperiencod are necessarily exposed to being p...

A TEXAS LAUNCH; A THRILLING SKETCH. Gloomy forebodings pervaded the American Squadron stationed.off Vcra Cruz and at the time tho battle of Boena Vista was reported in favor ol Gen. Santa Anna. It was about dusk in the evening when this news so joyful to the Mexicans, was made known within tho walls of Vera Cruz. Tho fire of cannon, tho blacc of rockets bursting in mid-air, the rolling drums, displaying of flags from every prominent point, and the loud huzzas of the population struck dismay among Ihe brave lars composing our navy. Tiiese rejoicings of the Mexicans, however, were to perish by the rising northern blast, like budding flowers which somelimes fall before they ripen to perfection of beauty in the early spring time. For while the rejoicings were progressing, a spec much whiter than the crested wave appeared bobbing up and down in the far distance. The glasses were soon brought into requibition, and the little spec was magnified into a sail, above which floated in gloriou...

From the New York Me.cury. CUTTING A FELLOW OUT BY A VICTIM. I once* attempted to cut a fellow out, that is, I poked my nose into his business, meddling with the affections of his gal, and got kicked for my pains. She is a nice gal; a fine gal is Mury Haincs; a little conceited, and great at the destruction of pork and beans. I admire her for that more than any tiling else ia the world, unless it be her conceit—Next to that, a girl can possess no higher claim upon my admiration than a good appetite for pork and beans—an appetite that will stand by her through all seasons and circumstances. Well, Mary Haincs loves pork and besns, with an implacable, undying, unappcasing, inexorable affec lion—ah ! who could not lovo such a girl ? I am not he—I love her for her love for them; I lovo her for her conceit! Ah! Mary Haiues, little do you know of the fierceness of the Vesuvius of love that burns in my bosom ! little do you know of the blaze you have kindled there, fed, and kept alive, ...
