tutio by tli sulo of tho lest rnri.s b6ut nt
a i)iii!o wliu.li all Ins folIoiv-trnilosiiKMuIo-
clareJ ryiuous. Ho unJcrolJ the trade,
and obtained troops of cuntoincrs.' These
boots must bo (stolen, said his uvula ; but
there was no evidence ilmt they" were
certainly they were not siniigfi'd boots,
for any one could satisfy himself that tin;
full duty was imid upon them at tho cus
tom-house. Ihe shoemaker retired from
business with a fortune, Afterward
secret was accidentally discovered al
though lie hud paid duty for the boots, ho
had not paid for everything tii.it was in
them., Thero was. a heavy duty payable
on foreign watches ; nnd o very boot con
signed to him from Taris lmd contained
in )t high lifol,) .rnyity exactly large
enough to hold a wauh'. The .great pro
fits obtained by tho trudo In t-muggled
watches, madu it possible tor this trades
man, when ho bud filled, tin their heels,
to sell his boots under prime cast. 'This
was worth while,' again', because 6f course,
by tho extension of his boot-tnde, hairi
croaed hu powj-r of importiitg watches,
Soino years later, aa elderly lady and
a lap-dog traveled a good deal between
Dover ami Ostend.' It camo to be svn-
crally considered at tlio cuHtom-hotise that
her travels were for tho- aula purpose of
tinugg!tn UruBsels lace, then suliject to
exceedingly high duty ; but : neither tho
examiners of her luggage, nor tho femnln
searchers at tho cubtom-house, who took
charge of her person, could by the nar
rowest scrutiny rind matter for a singlo
accusation.' At last, when fche wus about
to decline . the smuggling business, this
may accepted a bribo lrom a custom-house
oflicer to make him master of hor aeurot.
Calling to her side tho hip-dog, who was
to all strangers a very uiuppihh.liulo cur,
she asked the officer to (etch a knife and
rio the little creature oiien.. Like a few
of the dogs (which have sometimes even
proved to bo rats) sold in the btreets pi
London, it gloried outwardly in a false
skin; and between the falae a!;in and the
true skin was space enough to provide a
thin cur with tho comfortable1 fatness
proper to a lady's pet, by means of a warm
padding of the finest lace., In the reign
of Louis the Eighteenth it may be noted
by the way very fierce dogs were train
ed to carry valuable watches and small
articles under false skins across the fron
tier. Tbey vCtre taught to know and
avoid the uniform of a cuttom-houso offi
cer. Swift, cunning, and fierce, they were
never to be taken alive, although tby
were sometimes pursued aud shot.
Not very loug ago, a great number of
false bank-notes was put into circulation
within iho dominions of the Czar, They
could only have' been imported; but al
though the strictest search wan tuado ha
bitually over every vessel entering a Ru
sian port, no smuggling of false notes was
discovered.- So Mrict j mant to the
scrutiny ,at 'Russian custom-houses, that
die ship-captain, who is bound to give an
inventory of every artnle on board, may
fall into unheard-of trouble if he forget so
much as. bia own. private Canary-bird.
There was an English captain once at
Croostadt, who, by accident, forgot to en
ter a fine turtle upon his list. He told the
leading custom-house official plainly and
honeaily of his unfortunate omission, and
the functionary, who was a god-alured
man, saw no plain way out of the diffi
culty. He recommended that the matter
should be 'glossed over by assuming that
the turtle was intended for the Emperor.
The captain did, therefore, declare that,
if he had not entered the turtle, it was
because it had been brought expressly as
an Englishman's gift to the Czar, and to
the Czar the turtle was dispatched ac
cordingly. Soon afterward there arrived
a government messenger inquiring for
this most courteous of raptairs, who
brought the gracious thanks of the Czar
Nicholas, together with the gift cf a gold
snuff-box, embellished with tho autocratic
cipher set in diamonds. Instead of fine
and persecution, there wore gifts and
honors for this lucky sailor. But when,
afterward, some other trading captains,
aming, as they imagined, cunningly upon
the hint, brought lurtlo to exchango for
snuff-boxes, his nstuto mniety quietly
mado the tunics into soup, but declined,
by any act of exchange, to odd snuff.
Ihixos to tho 'article of Russian trado
shipped nl the port of Cronstadt.
Now to go back to the forged notes.
Accident brought also that mystery to
light. Several cases of leadr pencils ar
rived onti dny from England, and wore
being examined, when one Of them fell
out from a pnekago, and the custom-house
officer picking it up cut it to a -point and
used it to sign tho order which delivered
up the rnses to the consignee Ho kept
the one looso pencil for his own use J and
a few days' afterward, because - ft needed
a fresh point, cut it again, and found that
there was no morojead. .Another chip
into tho cedur , brought lu'm to. a roll of
pnper nested In a hollow loce. This pa
per was one of tho false notes,1 engraved
in London, nnd thus passed into tho do
minions of the Muscovite. - ; , . - ,
During tho last epidemic fever which
displayed itself in this country as a rage
for unti'iie furniture, much 6f this was
imported from tho Nethorlonds. A shrewd
Dutch tradesman very much preferred an
order for sofas and chairs to an order for
sideboards or tables. Horse hair, he
knew, was plentiful enough in England ;
the duty upon tea, however, was excess
ive i and by an arrangement entered into
with his Knglihh agent, it was understood
that tea should bo used, instead of hay or
horse-hair, as tho stuffing of all cushions
ntinrhod ' to furniture transmitted ly his
house. In this way there was a fortune

Rrmarkable Feats of a Mad Dog.
A dog belonging to Mr. James McKby,
i wno nves tour mnos nortneost of Augusta,
went mad, and in his travels Dammitted
tho most extensive depredations. Rumor
has it that tho dog hod been bitten three
weeks previous to his going road by an
other dog known to have been rabid but
being a great favorite with his master, he
tied him up, and ' refused; to kill him ;
when attacked with ' the disease, in his
paroxysm, ho broke from his fastenings
and escuped having, however, before
leaving his master's premises, bit two of
his horses, which have since gone mad.
He then took a course westward, on the
Warsaw and Augusta road, and, whoa
about three miles from his starting point,
overtook Mr. Futchin, who was returning
home from Augusta in a wagon, to his
homo near Chili ; one of his horses the
dog bit, and the animal has since gono
mad, . lie next overtook two strangers on
horseback, one of whom was leading a
third horse ; these three horses the dog
bit, but as the travelers proceeded on their
journey, it is not known whether fatal re
fculu fallowed or not. . At the residence
of " Mr. Jumes Nutt, he bit, one horse,
which has since gone mad.' !AtWi'gle
town he lit two horses (one since inad),
aUo two steers (one .sinco mad), and
twelve hogs. Next he lit a fine mare
(since mad), for Mr. Hart." Next he bit
a very fine horse (since tnadj, also threo
head of horses (one since mad), also a
cow and calf (both since mad). Next, at
Sylvester. Crouch's, he . bit one horse
(since mad), and fivo sheep (all now
dead). ' Next he went to William Taiga
man's, bit several hogs, two very large
ones, estimated at 500 pounds each (since
gono mad), and one steer. At William
son's, lit one cow, (since mad). ' Next
1 i II t, a a ta vet
ne ten in wun oia Air. mckman and hta
son ; ho sprang at the boy with such force
as to throw him down, but did not bite
him. ' A large dog of Mr. H.'s being in
company, seized him and drove him off.
He, however, before leaving his premises,
lit one (since mad). Next he had an
encounter with Mr. Blake's dog. After
this he went north to Mr. Adams' and bit
one steor. Next he went to John Stuart's
and attacked him. Mr. Stuart defended
himself with a hoe, and finally succeeded
in killing the animal. '. . . ,
The stock bitten was estimated to be
worth ?3,0OQ, "id already gone, mad,
$1 ,500. None of the animals Bitten went
mad bhort of three weeks from the time,
when bitten. The dog invariably caught
his victims by the nose. Most of the
damage was done in the night, he having
left his master's about dusk, and was kill
ed about noon of tho pet day. -War-saw
