Singular escape.

--Anthony Sheridan, who was shot at by Patrick McElroy, at Providence, on Saturday, received only a skin wound. A thick overcoat impeded the force of the ball, so that it only grazed the skin just below the breast. But the concussion of the blow on his body was so forcible that Sheridan, believing he had received his death wound, had himself carried home. The doctor was called, and he soon found where the ball struck, but could not trace its course afterwards, either inside or outside. The principal reason why the doctor could not follow the line of the ball was, that it had dropped into Sheridan's boot, and was found there after he had been put to bed, and made his peace with this world.
