Russell Joked.

--‘"L. L."’ Russell is now the subject of a disparaging joke in Washington circles. While walling leisurely up Pennsylvania Avenue, a short time since, where embrasures marked ‘"Seventh street."’ pass, he was accosted by a very pretty young lady with the inquiry, ‘"Will you please tell me sir, how far those stages go?"’ The ‘"special,"’ who unfortunately exasperates the ‘"H,"’repeated, ‘"Seventh street to hell, Miss,"’The lady indignantly turned from him with the remark, ‘"I mistook you for a gentleman,"’and was off before the astonished L L. D. could understand why the young lady should deem herself insulted.
