and a   very nasty place it was  being a belt of   trees with long grass  and on the far   side a deep ravine or dry water  otirse  j  overgrown and covered in with palm i  trees  etc   and evidently very much used    by them  I crept through thi s  and  there was tho lion looking at me about  a hundred yards oft   but for the life of  me I could not make him out till I got  a good deal nearer  as the sun was just  behind him  and his head looked like a  lot of tangled grass or leaves  He came  towards me  and the lioness bolted to   wards the ravine  When 1 hatl arrived  within about thirty yards I tried to go  down on my belly and get a steady rest  to make sure of him  but he suddenly  tiirimd and bolted after tho lioness  J  fired  hut saw no result  I then ran iqi  to my right to where the yther s were   and saw a fine old lion walking down to   ward me  I broke his hind leg with  one barrel and loosed the other at his  heart  when he came round and lay  down about ten yards below me  1  then had only the two cartridges left in  luy gun  and canid  not make up my  mind whether to run after the others or  finish this one off  However  I deter   mined not to lose him  and was trying  for a good shot at him  as I could see  nothing hut his heed   when he seemed  to get riled at my looking at him  and  got up and came at me  I fired  and  hit him ju st to the right of his heart   and  with my last barrel  when he was  just on me  broke his teeth and went  about one and a half iqches to the right  of biu brain  I a mosl Mender bo did  not catch me then    T dropped my gun  threw my cap in  his face  and ran as hard as 1 could for  the ravine  and  taking a tremendous  spring  fell right into a deep jiool  which  of course saved my life  It was a great  piece of luck  as  if there had been no  water  or even four or five feet  the lion  would have settled me  also  I bidieve  1 jumped over a great tr e  which would  probably have killed me if I had hit it   The lion almost caught me before 1 got  into the water  and must have taken a  tremendous leap  as he covered the  branches with blood ten feet in the air    1 of course tried to keep under the  water  but he clawed my head and body   and bit me in tho left side  and once I  thought he had my head in his mouth   and that I was done for  However  he  jiresently left me and went to the side   hut could uot get out  and sat half in  the water  grow ling and roaring fright   fully  I lost my field gla s ses  and fancy  he may have munched them up in mis   take for my head  I then trieil to swim

of my friend in the corner  as possible  mauaged to scramble along  down the jtool and got out on a steep  hank  1 then hobbled off  as hard as I  could go for my pony    I was dreadfully afraid of fainting  before 1 got home  as 1 was bleeding  pretty freely  and must have lost a lot  of blood in the water  also  I saw  every prospect of having to stay out  all night  as it was nearly sunset  and  I had no idea where the tents were   However  1 kept iny pony going to   wards tho setting sun  being somewhere  in the right direction  and by a great  piece of luck came right on one of oitr

and these  gentlemen  1 fancy  very seldom lot  off anything that comes in their way    They tell me that where he got out  of the water oti a big stone he revenged  himself on  i young tree by biting

ravage s of dogs  etc  Slaughter  pelts arc the most valuable  for several  reasons  They are generally larger   and freer from the cuts ami blemishes   hut their eiihaiieed price is as mucli  owing to their manipulation after  as  their condition at the time of removal   The butcher who daily handles from  half a dozen to one hundred pelts  finds  it to his interest to put fhem into the  best possible condition  and those flock  tnasters who will try the cxiieriiiient  will find it equally advantageous  To  those wc will ofl er a few suggestions    Remove the pelt from the sheep as  soon as possible after death  as every  hour it remain s on the animal damages  its leather properties  We have also j  found that those pelts sell liest that have  the feet and legs as high as the km e

 his breast there was an iiiiineiiKC iium   ber of jeweled orders  and around hi s  neck there was a necklace of very large  pearls  each worth a small fortune in  itself  Our Protestant idea is that we  cannot carry anything into the next  world with tu  but the Indian doctrine  seems to diftim   for it requires that the  body shall lie huriied with many of the  Jewels of the person  His head was  cnveicd by a black ami red turban  The  body was then wr apped in a large sheet  of red silk with quantities of perfume s  Dtid laid upon the funeral pile with the  feet Ki the east   i h

do not think  color has much to do with the sjiecific  chaiactev of the animal  but in shape  all must agree  Wc should not jirefer  a large hound to one of medium size   since in a thick woven

the same family  There are certain  points in a hound  as in a horse  which  should he always looked after  If not  of perfect symmetry  ho will not show  speed nor get through much work  His  legs

Democratic victory      TIIK NHORT IIOHAIfD I AXTI I      fbe Crop Report      We clip a few interesting facts from  the monthly report of the Department  of Agriculture  In regard to corn  the  estimates of product for the past years   have rarely indicated a very near ap   proach to a full crop  From a prelim   inary calculation on local returns from  seven hundred and forty nine counties   the product of this year is made to ex   ceed 1 100 000  000  This would give  about twenty eight bushels per acre  this year upon the assumed acreage    36 000  000  against twenty three and a  half bushels upon a little more than   37 000  000 acres last year  Returns in   dicate a larger product of sorghum than  last year    The tobacco crop is comparatively  large  and the e stimate of the year will  aggregate  at least  300 000 000 pounds    They hay crop is less in quantity  than that of 1809 by about 15 per cent   The estimate will go above 5i0  000 000  tons  which is little more than the pro   duct of 1809  The  piality is  su  erior  to such a degree as nearly to make  good the loss in quantity  The pro   duction of the year in potatoes is little  more than four fifths of the jireceding   and the  aggregate estimate will not  vary much from the total number of  bnahels in 1809   111 000 000  which  pill afford to each iuhabitaut four  fifths     A lIlNtliirt and Original Race  How to Prewerve lt  Purity and  Vigor     To ttie Editor of the Observer and Reporter    In view of the widely extended in   terest in this noble and valuable race of  cattle  the rapidity with which they  have established themselves in many of  the States of the Union  as superior to  all other  the writer has concluded it  might not be amiss to prejiare for the  press a few papers with reference to this  highly prized breed of cattle  My chief  objects shall be to vindicate their claim  to a high antiquity as a distinct and su   perior race  to show their peculiarities  and chief excellences  then to consider  how these may be best secured in order  to its perpetuation and highest improve   ment  If I can in a good measure suc   eed in this  I shall afford to all a sure  test of pedigrees by which they may be  greatly secured against impositions   I o  remove some prejudice at the outset   should any exist  and to seenre a fair  and candid consideration of the facts  and figures I shall present  I will here  ask  Were I to assert the very great  antiquity  the peculiarity  distinctness  and sH  eriority of the  Caucasian race  of men  would my renders weigh my  facts and jiroofs uncandidly  Certainly  not  But to our subject  and first  of  the great antiquity and well authentica   ted superiority of the Short Horns   Deriving our   mericau  short horns  from the British Isles  we must go to  the history of cattle of this remarkable  breed  as given by her writers  in order  to reach as far as we may in  he distant  past for our knowledge of them   Vouatt  an English writer of celebrity   nforms us on the 19th page of his work  that the various breeds of British cattle  have been very conveniently classed   according to the comparative size of the  horns  into long horns from Lancashire   the short horns from East Vork origin   ally  the middle horns  not ileriveil from  mi xture of the two preceding  but a  distinct and valuable ami beantilul breed  nhabiting principally the North of  Devon    c    Fhe Alderney  with her  crumpled horn  is found on the South   ern coast   And  the polled or horn   less cattle prevail in Sufl olk and Nor   folk  and in Galloway whence they were  first derived  and hence their name    The same writer  on page 226 of the   same work  thus writes   From the   earliest periods  as to which we have  any accounts of our breeds of cattle  the  counties of Durham and York have  been celebrated for their short horns   but principally in the first instance on  account of their reputation as extraor   dinary milkers     The author of the American Farmers   Encyclopedia  referring to the same  source of information  says qn page 291  under the head of  The Short Horns    Durham and Yorkshire have for ages  been celebrated for a breed of these pos   sessing extraordinary value as milkers        well inforir ed American writer  tells ns   The short horns as a race    distinct in their character of excellence  and individuality  are as ancient as any  breed of cattle now existing in Eng   land    Vol  1    m  Herd Book  page  35   On the next page  36  he con   tinues   To the banks of the river  Tees  separating the counties of Dur   ham and York  reference is to he had  for an account of the originals of the  improved short horns  There in 1740  existed a breed of cattle  for a descrip   tion of which the author  Mr  H  Berry   is indebted to an old and celebrated  breeder  in color resembling what is  called the Improved breed of the pres   ent day  except that the fashionable roan  was not quite so prevalent  They are  de scribed in general character also  to  have differed very little from their de   scendants  Po ssessing a fine mellow  touch  good hair  light offal  particularly  wide carcasses and deep forequarters   they also Justly celebrated for extraor   ilinary jiroof  tallow  when slaughter   ed  Several spirited individuals  at  that early period  had devoted much  attention to the im  iovemerit of the  breed of cattle then prevailing in the  counties of Durham and York  and  amongst others Sir William St   juin   tin  of Scampston  imported bulls and  cows from Holland  We have heard it  asserteil that this stock  referring to the  Holland cattle   w aB originally  sent     is this tribe which is supposed to have  marked ihc short horn families gener   ally  and not the wild cattle of Chil   lingworth I aik  as asserted by Mr   Vouatt in hi s work on British cattle  for  the se last have a white  brittle horn  a  dfltl  sluggish  fm ocious eye and other  characteristics  totally different from any  well bred short horn   Same hook  p   37  quoting  Am    g   1 842  vol  1  ji   161   As early as 1740  Mr   Millbank   devote l his attention to this branch of  rural economy   His success as a  breeder of short  horns may be known  bv the following facts    A five year   old ox  bred ami fed by this gentleman   weighed when slaughteretl  the four  quarters  2 100 i ounds net  and tallow  224 pounds  A cow also  bred from his  stock  the pro  erty of Mr  Sharter  of  Chilton  slaughtered when twelve years  old  having produced several calves   weighed upwards of 1  540 pounds net   This cow was the daughter of the Old  Studley Bull  one of the most celebrated  ancestors of the improveil short horns   He was the grandsire of Dalton Duke   bred by Mr  Charge   From him also   descended William and Richard Bar   ker s and Mr  Hill s bulls  all animals  of the highest reputation in their day    Sir James Pennyman may also be  named as a distinguished breeder of  short horns at that very early period    The family of the Aislabies  the then  residents of Studley Park  in York   shire   had very fine cattle in the seven   teenth century   A  D  16    Sir Wil   liam St  Quintin drew some of his best  blood from this  source      Ibid  p  38   Not to mention many of the numerous  breeders of that distant   eriod  we aild   on page 37  same book    The Smith    son s  of Stanwix  in Northumberland     bred good short horns in 1640   In a  note on the same page the author says    In a private conversation with him   since his return from England  Mr    Allen   A  B   informed us that he was  told  while in Durham  that an ancient  recoril now in that county  showed the  short horns as existing there in great  excellence four hundred years ago     Great antiquity is claimed for some of  the stock in Northumberland  and as  early as 1770  Mr  Dickson  and proba   bly others  had cattle that were famous  milkers  and much resembled in other  particulars the short horns of the pres   ent day  lieing quick feeders and  good handlers  We might enlarge on  this subject and prove that  he short  horns are an ancient and superior race  It is undeniable throughout Great  Britain that when the good milking and  piick feeding  pialities of any breed of   attle are sought to be improved  the  short horns are universally re sorted to  and when properly selected  always with  marked success  We saw these  crosses  in infinite number on the cattle of Ire   land  Scotland  England anil Jersey   and the colors and forms of the short   horns immediately stamped themselves  upon the jiroduce and predominated   which is proof indisputable  if other  were wanting  of their great antiquity  and long high breeding   AVe have  then given us on pages 40 and 41 of the  same work  a record of sixteen short   horns  males and females  with the  names of breeders and feeders  that  were slaughtered at that early period   the weight of which varied according  to age  time of feeding  Ac   from 1 330  pounds  a three years old steer  up to  2 362 pounds  a seven years old steer   and from 1 260 pounds  a three years  old heifer  descended from the Old Stud   ley Bull  up to 1 540 pounds  a five  years old heifer  bred by the Bishop of  Durham   Thus much for the Tees   water short horns  the originals of the  improved short horns      Ibid    Let the reader here boar in mind that  all we have quoted and written is with  reference to the short horns as they  were before the days of the   ollings   Robei t and Gharles  and their opera   tions with short horn cattle  Fbiough  has certainly been presented to establish  beyond a doubt the high antiquity of  the short horns  as a distinct and suj e   rior race of cattle         4rrii rv    laniiiii y I         N Itie Itiniineiis raUce of Time    i     1     I   llir line liiis Ijeen born     In his honor Ihe

Bene letti  the  French Minister Plenipotentiary at the  Prussian court before the outbreak of  the present war    A very rich Greek merchant  resident  iu   lexandria  had two black wives  whom he loved dearly  and for whose  service he provided a large retinue of  beautiful girls  One of his wives  one  day  chanced to see a charming white  girl  and was so pleased with her that  she coaxed her husband into buying her  The beautiful slave became a confi   dential servant and companion to her  negro mistresses  and conducted herself  toward them in such a sagacious manner  that she became indispensable to them  She sang to them  and gossiped and  frolicked so gracefully that ennni was  banished completely  She won their  affection  and through them  also  the  affection of her master  the venerable  Greek merchant    But  unfortunately  the black wrven         suddenly fell sick one day  and before  nightfall they were hotli dead  Their  disease was known to nobody  and they  were hastily buried   fhe beautiful  young slave  who had not left their side  for a moment during the few hours of  their illness   seemed inconsolable  She  did her best  however  to assuage the  grief of the ancient merchant  and in  this way so endeared herself to him that  he adopted her as his child and heir   since he was Just a little too old to  marry her  In course of time  the ven  erable sage rejoined his swarthy wives  in the other world  and the fortunate  nymph came into possession of his mil   lions  aVI this stage of her existence  Count Benedetti  who was then only a  penniless attache to the French consulate  in Alexandria  offered her his hand and  heart  and having married her  with the  aid of her wealth cut for himself a road  to fame  In this way  she who was  once a slave to slaves  became a star in  the circles of the French world of  fashion      A Salem man  soM a piece of land  long since to the Eastern railroad lot  a free pass for life over the road and
