As its name In- dicstes, it is a tale of disunion, but the author has most signally failed to make the book either, witty, or interesting. We tried four times to read it, and each time threw It up in disgust.

Doge will give him a wide tealk hereafter. WARHIBG.— We have heard two or three able bodied men threaten to shoot a large New- fonndland dog, called 'Prince," at present residing with somebody on the corner of Jefferson-Bud ^isconsin streets. His little pleasantry of anapping at the legs of passers .>y, when they are, minding their own business, ' will bring about a dog funeral at that dog's home, |n a Jay or so, if he is not tied np.
