BURTON. I TRAPPRD BY THE TIDE—An amusing scene was witnessed at Burton Marsh a few days ago, when a number of sportsmen were sur- surrounded by the tide. One gentleman was seated in a huge bacon box sunk in the bank by way of concealing him self from the expected wild geese. Under ordinary circumstances the tide would not have touched him, but it was brought rapidly up by a strong wind. He found, like Canute of old, that the waves would not be stayed, for they quickly evicted him from his box. and shortly afterwards he was seen swim- ming across the deep gutter which separated him from the shore, his fowling piece held high out of the water. His companion probably could not swim, for he crossed by rapidly touching the bettom with his feet and propelling himself up- ward and onward, his head meanwhile rising and falling in the water. The adventure was watched with shrieks of laughter by other sportsmen who were on the shore. Another group of six men were surrounded together. One of them, who gingerly began to try the depth of one of the innocent-looking gutters, fell in with all his clothing on, and the other five were soon in the same predicament. They were all obliged to hurriedly precipitate themselves in to the water. One, who stripped and tried to swim over with dry clothing, found the latter slip from his grasp, and he finally left minus his cap and socks.
