A practical Joke.

--During the valentine season, a young gentleman, in the neighborhood of Dunfermline, received a valentine from Glasgow, in the shape of a real donkey, all alive and kicking. It came by rail, and cost him 16s. for carriage — double the value of the valentine. The point of the Joke is, that the fortunate receiver is one of the mounted volunteers.
