T H S H IB U R R r iA N A N D T H E H D G . OR TH£ A d v e B tarea o i ^ a C r l c k a n d th e (Fron^lhe New Orleans Delta.) On last Friday morning, an occur­ rence took place at ihe corner o f Relig- ous street, that was eminently interest­ ing. A friend, whose name if necesa- n be mentioned, had a “star” pig that was in his yard. By some acci­ dent or other, the “gintleman pig” es-- caped out of the yard, and darted down the street. He wasa short-iaiied stri­ ped, ugly-looking pig, and gave ofFence te every body that he met. No matter however, for that—-he was genteel, when persons did not run against him But, unfortunately, in his pre- arnbulations, the pig aforesaid ran aga­ inst the sacred person of Mr. Patrick Miillowney, a gentleman who boasted that he was “an Irishman fron Virgini- a,“ or, in fact, one of the double“XX’s” as they say in their direction on shot bags. Mr Mullowney.nt the time that the incident took place, was passing by. Me ivas a short gentleman, with legs that evidently been intetided for a duck and a face that was redolent with gotid huimr. The pig running in between his legs, knocked him down into the gutter. Patrick was ihe most angry mt^n in the world;covered with mud and slime, he got up and dared the pig to mortiil combat. •'Ve villain! ’ said he, “is this the way that I’m to be served ! Am I to from th'e oiild coiinihry to be insult­ ed by an Amirikin pig* Put this in yer pipe on smoke it.’ With this Patrick endeavored to strike the pig, w^hp ol.1 the while was standing his guard, grihBinf as if he wanted to plunge his tusks into the leg.' of his opponent. The pig after hearing him­ self insulted, made a dart toumrds Lis enemy and endeavored to anihilate him. Patrick gdt out of the way, and squar­ ing oft a l a iJeaf Burke said— ‘■)s it there ye are? And ye’d in­ sult ati innocent citizen (ioming paciblv along the street. Oh, y e bloody-minded inonsther! Take that an that, an this an th is!” With this Patrick let his opponent have dine or tivo blows in the nose,- which through thd r force knocked hitti off his hind legs. Mr. Pig however, soi recovered himself and being maddened by the treatment he had received made! another dash towards his opponent. In this ihstatice science .vvas dfhoi avaJL iib. far as Patrick was concernedl The ebivatrie jAg, full o f bravery, fiie'indyin'! fdignation ;; bit his assailant oii the arm and ran his^sharp tusks Into his thigh. Patrick soon gave up the unequal com­ bat and prancing about as i f h f had St. Vitus’ dance, screamed out, “ Ob houlv Moses where are ye now, that ye don’t come to the aid ov poor Patrick?” “ What’s the mu'-ieiP’f^ked a person who rushed on the spot after hearing the noise, “ Oh, it’s a gentleman sow I’ve been wounded by! Oh, murther! rourtherl he had tusks like the teeth iv..a harrow and I’m ruined intirely! Luk at me leg and me arm.” ' “ Well, what's the use of your talking why don’t you go home and get your wounds dressed? You are severely ihoug not dangerously hurt, and you’ll by all means repair to your lodgings and afterwards send for a jfhysicir Patrick bowed and staunching the blood that was flowing from his thigh pressing the side of his irowsers into wound, he said, “God be wid ye, sur; biU it’s satisfaction 1 must have.” He then limped off, thinking no doubt that he had. been greviously insulted; while the pig relying upon bis own dignity and flushed with success intimatedby a sarcastic grunt that he was perfectly; satisfied as to the manner in which he' had conducted himself in the combat. Yesterday morning Patrick, with his rm in a sling and his thigh covered with bandages came to the house of the proprietor of the pig that had assaulted him. The owner came out and reques­ ted to know what he wanted. With a sullen scowl Patrick said— “I’m come for indemnification.” ‘’Indemnification sir, and for what ?” ‘For the pig»” said Patrick, grasping his crutch convulsively; “the pig run his tushks into me as if be wa* a rhi­ noceros or an eliphant. Not an hour of work have 1 made since the eccidint tuk place, and I now come for the indimni- fication for the loss of niy time.” “My friend, it is impossible for me to indemnify you for a loss with which I am in no manner concerned,” “But isn’t the pig consarned, and is It the pig your own property, an aim ye liable by law fer the ax ov the heavy bodies, like husbands, from flying off into space.

He may leave him money;but blemished repiilatioh, a gUod dducatjpn, and an iaw'ard abhorrence of vice in tiny shape or form, those cannot be wrested from him, and are better than tl of gold and silver.
