AFFECTION, INTREPIDITY, AND IMPERTINENCE. The Potsdamer Zedtcng supplies us with an amazing instance of female intrepidity, ingenuity, and perhaps we may add, female impertinence. An engine-driver on the Potsdam Railway, at a short distance from Steghtz, suddenly perceived three well-dressed ladies standing on the line, and making urgent gesticulations in the direction of the train, in order to compel it to come to a halt. Two of them were actuallystanding upon the rails. He at once made use of the whistle, but to his horror the ladies stood firmly in the same fearful position, and kept up their vigorous pantomime. He saw that if he dashed onward he must infallibly slaughter them, and was obliged to bring his train to a standstill. As soon as the halt was effected the young ladies came up, nodding and smiling, rushed to one of the carriages, out of which an old gentle- man stepped down, whom they greeted as "papa." It appears that papa's villa lay a mile and a half on the near side of Steghtz, and that his ingenious daughters had resorted to the daring scheme in order to spare him the time and trouble of a long walk or the expense of a carriage. The guard's indignation was stronger than his gallantry, and he not only com- pelled papa to remount, but made the three ladies follow him, and carri,el them on to Steghtz, where they have to give account for their conduct, and will rpobably be mulcted of many msnths' pinmoney.
