A Speculator. - A shrewd speculator from the American side has been "doing" the farmers on Wolf Island by introducing his "win plant," a vegetable supposed to produce profuse quantities of sherry wine, superior to the bona fide article. His plan was to represent to a farmer that his neighbors had secured large numbers of the plants and his stock was just gone to the last thousand, but afterwards discovered that the transactions reported were imaginative, and that he had no particular security for the delivery of the plants. He succeeded in recovering his property before confiscation was secured by removal to American territory. - Kingston British American.
