An Extraordinary Devil.

--The editor of the Sequatchee Herald has a new "devil" --an indispensable appendage about a printing office — whom he thus describes:

‘ Our new devil is a very eccentric man. He is about thirty-one years of age; has been a school teacher, clerk, telegraph operator, blacksmith, doctor, lawyer and now he commences to learn the printing business.

P. S.--Since writing the above we learn that our devil run as brokesman on the Memphis and Charleston Railroad. He stuck three days and then retired with his dignity. We have been favored with a sketch of his experience during that steelful three days railroading. The question is how would it have been is get rich!
