A fine buck was run down, after a chase of two miles, on Monday evening, by the steamer C. C. Trowbridge, Capt. LANE. The weather was very warm, and the animal had probably gone into the Lake to have a little fine sport in the way of swimming. He had got out about half a mile in the Lake when he was seen by Capt. LANE, and immediate chase given. After following him about two miles, the boat came up with him, a slipper noose was thrown over his head, and he safely moored on board. The Capt. politely sent us a piece of the venison which was very excellent; and we hope that he may be so fortunate as to entagle a dear in the hymenial noose one of these days.
