But glass followed glass in such merry and rapid succession, that the vigilance of the officers gave way, the debt and warrant sunk into oblivion. Two strangers, taking a dram at the same table, saw how matters stood, and, to deliver the poor debtor from his trouble, lighted their pipes with the warrant. What could the officers do without a warrant? A convenient little disturbance insured the whole party a conveyance to the police-office. The true state of the case was soon discovered by the searching queries of the Fiscal; when the officer who had the charge of the warrant, and the two strangers who lighted their pipes with it, were held bound for the debt.-Scotch Paper. ATTACK OF A BULL UPON TWO HORSES.âA bull and two young heifers having been put into a close at Syston, on Wed- nesday, belonging to Mr. M Moore, where two valuable horses were grazing, one of the latter ran at him in a playful manner, when the bull immediately commenced a furious attack upon both horses, and so much gored them, as to render the recovery of one, if not both, very doubtful. With such rapidity did the bull follow up its attacks, that they do not appear to have had an opportunity of getting out of its way. The bull had hitherto been considered very quiet and docile. The two horses were rearing for the chace, well bred, and were worth from two to three hundred pounds.-Leicester Chronicle. GOOD LUCK.âA hackney coachman in M, oorfields was called from his stand one day last week to take possession of an estate of £150 a year, to which he succeeded by the death of a relation at Edmonton. The poor fellow and his family were in the ut- most distress, having been threatened by their landlord, only a few hours before the glad tidings arrived, to be turned out of their lodgings, in consequence of their inability to pay off some old arrears of rent. MANCHESTER AND LÃNDON RAILWAY.âThe Macclesfield public were agreeably surprised on Monday se'nnight by the opening of a new railway from Manchester, through this town, to Birmingham and London, without the expensive and tedious preliminary to its formation of an act of parliament.âManchester Herald. A deplorable occurrence took place at Perpignan a few days ago. The wife of a corporal had criminal relations with a mu- sician of the regiment. Her husband, on being apprised of it, watched her conduct, and hearing that she had entered the room of her paramour, immediately proceeded thither with a sabre and a pair of pistols. Finding them together, he plunged his sabre into the musician's body. The woman made her escape. The corporal then blew out his own brains. The musician is still living, and hopes are entertained of his recovery.-French Paper.
