Narrow escape.

--While some gentlemen were engaged in pistol practice in a yard in the rear of Franklin street, last Saturday, one of them had a narrow escape from death.--During a playful scuffle, a revolver, which was supposed to have been entirely discharged, went off, and the ball grased an ear of the person alluded to, and singed his hair.
