PEDESTRIANISM EXTRAORDINARY. ─ We yesterday conversed with a gentleman who assured us that, on Tuesday last, he left Baltimore at 8 o’clock A. M. and walked from thence to Bladensburg, from Bladensburg to Upper Marlborough, and from Upper Marlborough to this city [Washington, District of Columbia], which he reached at ten minutes before seven o’clock the same evening ─ thus walking a distance of 63 miles in less than thirteen consecutive Hours!  The pedestrian referred to is well Known in Baltimore and the adjoining counties, which he frequently visits for professional purposes.  We consider the above an extraordinary feat, and worthy of being publicly recorded. ─ Nat. Int. [1]
