A KORTUNATB SHOT.—The Ne. Orleans Dwmr*} at tells the following story: "The late Alex*r>ire Grailhe, whose remains were brought to this «tv from Europe in the steamship Nuremberg, had a. singular and rather unpleasant experience on the fieid of honour in his younger days. Like all adventurous young Frenchmen forty years ago, he could not avoid involvment in some of those numerous personal affairs which were then so frequent between Frenchmen and fiery young Creoles. Wrh two very prominent and gallant gentlemen of the latter race Mr. Gmilhe became engaged in contro- versies which led to meetings on the field of honour. In the first instance the duel was fought with swords, and the unfortunate Frenchman was run through the body, and not only suffered greatly from his wound, but exhibited for years after- wards the effects of the injury in a certain inclination of fcis body, whioh was not natural, owing to the internal absoess resulting from the wound. Some time after he engaged in hinecond reneontre, in which he reeeivrd the bullet of his adversary right through the body. Strange to say, the beneficent missile passed right through the former wound, opening the abscess whisk threatened the estimable gentleman's life; and by inflicting a new, severe, and painful wound, not only sured him, but had the effeet of straightening his person to a rigid and exact perpen- dicularity, so that his carnage appeared even unnatur- ally stiff and haughty.' Excise PROSECUTION.—At the Liverpool Poliee-court on Tuesday, before Lieutenant-Oolonel Steble and Mr. T, Avison, Lewis Levy. a clothier, was summoned by the Excise, under the 19th section oil the Wine Licence and Refreshment House Act, 1863, for having sold a pint of wine without having a proper licence, whereby he rendered himself liable to forfeit thr- sum 0" £20 over and above any other penalty. At Christmas the defendant issued hand- bills stating that he would give all bis old customers a bottle of fine old port or sherry as a Christmas present; and, to place his new customers upon the same foot- ing, all purchasers to the amount of 20a. and upwards would receive the same. An Excise officer bought a great coat for 25s. and received a ticket for a bottle of wine, obtainable at the stores of the W^ne Shippers' Association. The defence was that the wine was given as a present, but the Bench imposed a fine of .£5. A J special case for appeal was, however, granted.
