The conci pondi nt of the New York Com
mercial Advertiser, writing from Fire Island,
relates the following incident of Dr. Greeley's
visit to that delightful spot:
“The news that Horace was going to wrestle
withold Neptune brought two or three hun
dred guests, farmer folks, etc. to the shore to
witness the novel sight. As the veteran mer
man emerged from the bath-house the crowd
yelled approvingly, mid tho boys shied clam
shells nt him in mi encouraging way. Hfii
Apollo-like form never appeared to better ad
vantage, and were it not lor tho slight ten
dency of liiri right hip to play see-saw with
the left, (producing a peculiar shambling
gait,) he might bo said to have advanced,
‘gracefully’ to tho water-line. Half a dozen
young lady bathers bud placed themselves
tinder his protection for a plunge in tho brine."
•'(), dear, Mr. Greeley, I know 1 can never
stand it," said a beautiful blonde, as a big
wave burst, enveloping her little feet in the
“Pshaw, my dear, you needn't be alruid.
I’ll protect you." And so lie did, to the great
uneasiness of her lover, who beheld the dex
terous veteran (mistaking her neck for her
waist) encircle tier with bis arm, nnd drag her
niter him ns though ho meant to drown her.
In four feet of water they suddenly disappear
ed from view, and reappeared after five soo
ond",tbe young lady in a terrib'e state of fright.
The kind old man rndcavored to pacify her:
“Steady, my dear,’’ he said, endeavoring to
hide hi* own nervousness; “there’s no use of
getting flighty. It is natural for the human
family to swim,"
“O, Mr. Greeley, how can you say so?" ex
claimed the wretched maiden, wildly spurting
thrfsand and the brine from her mouth.
“Von ain't accustomed to it, my child;
calmly endure it a little longer aud you’ll
“No, never, never. I want to be unnatural.
I don’t like it, and never will. I don't want
to belong to the human family, Mr. Greeley,
and ’’ here another huge breaker cut short
her frenzy, and lifting both bathers, burled
the Bage headlong over his fair charge. A
volley of cheers arose from the beach as be
recovered himself, quickly seized her by the
back of the neck and one leg, nnd held her
aloft, dripping and struggling with the fine
energy that a female ean exert under the pres
sure of mingled rage.
“She still lives," faintly murmured an old
lady near me, who, when a child, had been
dandled on John Quincy Adams’ knee.
“Come, that's played out, old man. Fetch
her ashore,” ejaculated an angry countryman,
suggestively gathering a handful of sand. “I
thought you knew better than to be yanking
a poor girl around that way."
But by this time the horror-stricken and
incensed lover had waded in, boot* aud all,
and rescued his sweetheart from the perilous
clutches of the chivalrie merman, who stood
gazing stupidly after them with bis back to
the »a, until tho water* collecting their
strength, struck him abeam with a mighty
fore . ami landed him sprawling far upon the
beach. Thus ended tho ewcct old philan
thropist's attempt to prove what “I know

may enable him to siring them together like

The Ashland (O.) Times vouches for tho fol
lowing incredible story ot a pig that had fast
ed for nine months:
The bog belongs to David Hughs, living
four mtles southwest of Olivesbnrg, on tho
road leading to Mansfield. Mr. Hugh*
missed th® hog, as neat a* he can reeolloel,
about th* 12th or 20th of last October. It was
in good enter at that time, aud would weigh
iu the neighborhood of two hundred pounds.
Thsre was an old straw stack near th* barn,
under which th* hog* wer' in the habit of go
ing, and it is supposed that this one, born to
fame, was under at th* tim* they threshed,
aud heuo* got so completely covered up that
it could uot gel out The straw stack was a
very large one, mid during the winter and
spring Mr. Hughe permitted bis cattle to run
to the stack. They hav* gradually eaten aud
worked it away, aud ou the hurt of June bad
so far reduced it a* to release tho unfortumto
hog It made its appearance through a very
small opening, after a fast of nearly niu'u
months, in which time it had neither food nor
water. How it succeeded in retaining thu vi
tal spark we are not able to say, but moat con
fess that it is a story almost too incredible to
ask any one to believe. Yet we have it ou the
best authority and from men who are reliable.
Our reporter says ho saw the bog, and from
general appcataueee ho would couchido tint
it would have to he led about two mouths in
order to make it a good skeleton.
