'The New York Star, in an artiele on betting, relates the following?  A distinguished physician calle,d to attend  an inveterate better, who was attacked with  a sudden and. dangerous illness. Altera  careful diagnosis, the doctor assured him that  his condition was extremely critical and his,  chances of recovery very doubtful. Thereat  the patient rallied somewhat, and the following colloquy ensued.  "I'll bet you a hundred dollars, doetor,  that I don't die.'-'    ^   ���������  ",My dear sir, you may not; but I think it  proper to advise you that, in my opinion, you  will."  " Well, doctor, if I die will I go to heaven."  '" I hope so, sir."  " Will I be an angel V>  . '''Yes,sir.":" -   .',-  " Will I fep<ve wings V  u.

He bad accordingly-tmppiied Anderson with goods, and refjuesfced him to ask  Grier to send1 the m oney. A n ders0 n su bwe-  quently brought him'the order on Montgomery, endorsed by Grier, and he had given  credit for the samel charging the amount to  Montgomery.

The Judge decided that tbe letter being  directed to Teunant.it must be delivered to  him with the money, the Court having no  power to detain it.

" Aa Old Hunter," who vouches for the  ���������truth of lis story, writes to   the Antioch  ^Ledger averring that the statement about a  gorilla having been seen among the moan-:  :  *tains at the head of Orestrinba creek," and iri  Crow canon, is strictly'true.' He says:      ly  i posiiively -assure you that this gorilla, or  wild man, or whatever you choose to call it,-  {is no mythl   I know that it exists, and that  ���������there are at least two of tbem, having seen  them both at once, not a year ago.   Tbeir existence has been reported at'timec for the  past twenrty years, and I have heard it .said-  that in early days an orang-outang escaped  'from a ship, on the southern coast;. but tbe;  ���������'creature I have seen is not that animal, and if  rit is, where did he get&ts mate ?���������import her  ras'the Web -foots did their wives ?   Last fall I  was hunting iu tbe mountains about 20 miles  :- south' of here, and camped five or six days in  ��������� one place, as I have done every season for  y the past fifteen years.   Several times I re-  Uiroed to my earap, after a hunt, and saw  -that the ashes and charred sticks from the fire  vplace  bad been scattered about.    An old  Shunter notices sucb things, and very soon gete  '   'curious to know the cause.   Although mjr.  ...;' ^bedding and traps and little stores were not  ;   Vdisturhea, that'I.co^d see, I was anxious to  ��������� -learn-what or who it was that so regularly  ���������visited my camp, for clearly the half^bumedl  .^sticks and -cinders could not scatter them-,  ��������� 'selves about.  I saw no tracks near tbeoamp,  "'^as tho bard-ground, covereflwitb dry leaves,.  ' ^vould show none; So I started on a circle  -round the'place, and threeYhtindred yards off,  f; Jndeep sand, Lstrnck tbe track of a. man's  feet, as I supposed, bare and of immense size^  /Sow I was/curious, sure, and resolved to lay  .    for this barefooted visitor.    I accordingly  ^tooW a* position on a bill side,, some sixty or  j>������eventy.yards from.the fire, and securely bid  /'in tho brush, I waited and watched. Twoi  hours or more I set there, and wondered if* i  the owner of the bare feet would comeagafn,  .and whether he imagined what an in'terest he  had created in my. inquiringmmd, and, finally,  What ^possessed him to. be. prowling: about  there with no shoes on.   The fire-place was  ��������� on my rigft and, the ^spot v^here I saw the  ��������� tracks'was *cin my left,s hi d by bushes..; It was  'in this direction^^^that my attention jvas mostly  d i rected, th inking the v isi tor would ap p ear  tjbere, and, besides, it was easier to sit and  ifaoe that way.   Suddenly I was startled by a  shrill;thistle, such as boys produce with two  /fingera under their tongue,   and . turning  ��������� *quickly^ I ejaculated," Good God S" as I Baw  the object of my solicitude standing beside  *aiy ��������� frrej Verecfc,'��������� and look'iag *sg8 piciously  ������������������'['-. arqti n Q.

I was never so  ���������benumbed with astonishment before; The  'creature, Whatever it was, stood fully five feet  ���������high,   and! disproportionately   broad   and  ; -square at tho shoulders, with arms of great  ���������length.   The legs were very short and tlie  ��������� 'body long. The head was small compared  ���������with'the rest of the-creature, and appeared to  be set upon bis shoulders without a neck.  The whole was covered wifti dark brown and  i .cinnamon colored hair, quite long on some  y parts, that on the head standing in a shock  and growing1 close down to the eyes, 'like a  Digger Indian's.   As I looked, he threw his  head back and wiaistled  again,  and  then  -stoopod and grasped a stick from the fire.  This he swung round and round, until the fire  on the end had gone out, when,. he repeated  the manccuver.    I was dumb, almost, and  could'Only look,   fifteen minutes I sat aud  watched him, as he whistled and scattered  my lire about.  I could have easily put a bullet through ���������his head, but why should I kill  him?   Having amused himself, apparently,  all he desired", with my fire, he started to go,  ���������and having gone a short distance, he returned,  and was joined "by another���������a female, unmis-  itakably-rV/hen they both turned and walked  past me; within twenty yards of where I sat,  and disappeared.in the; brush.
