A Fighting Minister.

--The Milwaukee Sentinel relates that the pastor of one of the churches in that city recently became aware that a young man in his congregation was forming bad habits. Meeting the stray lamb one night in the streets with some dissolute companions, the Reverend gentleman at tempted to dissuade him from going further, but the rowdies in company objected, and one of them struck the parson. The fellow had reckoned without his host. In a moment the clergyman had thrown off his coat and "sailed in." A very brief space of time sufficed for him to "wax blazes" out of the crowd; and having accomplished the feat, he quietly resumed his coat, and with it his equanimity.
