satsubag Morninp, fitoctobet 12. ONO.
i. t . , .
We hear, no mere the clanging hoof, -
And the stage conch rattling by.. ,
For the steam•king roles the traveled ;world.
And the old Pike's left to die.
The grass creeps o'er the flinty path.
And the stealthy daises steal,
Wherelsere the stage•horse day by day.
Lilted his iron heel,
No more the weary items dreads
The toil of the coming morn ;
No more the bustling landlord runs.
At the sound of the echoing horn ;
For the &nit - lies still upon the roof,
And bright eyed children play.
- Where once the clattering hoof and wheel
Rattle! along the way.
No more we bear the mucking whip.
Or the strong wheels rumbling round,—
Ah hs. the enter drives us on.
And an iron horse is found s •
The cough stands rusting in the yard;
And the horse bath sought the plough.
We have spanned the world with an iron rail,
And the steam—king rules us sow.
The old Turnpike is a pike no tame,
' Wide open !muds the gate;
We have made us a road for our borseto stride.
Whteh we ride at a flying rate.
We have filled the rallies and leveled the hills,
And toneled the mountain's side.
And round the rough ernes dizzy verge,
Fearlessly on we ride !
On--on-l-on—with a haughty front!
A putt, a shriek, and a bound;
While the tardy echoes wake4lso late.
To bublile back the sound;
And the old Pike-road is left aloni:
And the.stagers sought the plough;
We have circled the earth with au iron rail,
And the steam-king rules us now.

this time the yelping of the blood hounds
had bean ringing in oat we. Soddenly it 'ceased.
"They haie touched the water," said Claylev.
" No," rejoined Lincoln, stopping a moment to
listen, ." thy're chagrin' them teams."
"There, egain,"eried one,'es their deep voices
rang down the glen ; in a chores of the whole pack.
The nest minute We dogs were mote a mend
time, apeakmg•at intervals in a fierce growl, that
told as that they were at fault. Beyond an occa
sional bark, we heard nothing of the bloodhounds
until we had gained at least two miles down the
Orman. We began to think we had baffled them
in earnest, when Lincoln Who had kept in the
sear, was seen to throw himself 'flat on the grass.
We all stopped, looking at him with tnesddess anx
iety. It was but a minute. Rising op with a
reckless air, he struck his: rifle fiemely upon the
ground, exclaiming—
u Swamp them hounds, theY've arta us again r
•By one impulse, we all rushed beek - totheereek,
and scrambling on the rocks, plunged into the wa
ter and commenced wading down. A sudden ex
clamatioa burst hom Raoul, in the advance. We
soon learned' the cause, and to our dismay—we
bad struck the water at a point where the'• stream
conned. On each side rose a frowning precipiece,
straight u a wall. Between these, the black tor
rent rushed through a channel only a few feet in
width, so swiftly, that had we attempted to des
cend by swimming, we should hive been dashed
to death against the rocks .below. To reach the
stream Wilier down, it would be peceseary to make
a. eircuit of miles, and the hounds would be on our
heels before we could gain a hundred yards. We
looked at each other, and at Lincoln—all panting
and pale.
0 ‘ Stumped at list," cried the hunter, gritting his
teeth with fury.
" No," I ithouteki., a thought at that moment flash
'ad upon me. " Follow me, comrades. We'd fight
the bloodhounds on the cliff.""
I pointed upwards. A yell Onn Lincoln an
nounced his approbation.
"Hooray!" be cried, leaping on the bank, " that
idee's just like yer cap. Hooray ! Now boys for
the Mod."
The next moment we were straining up the gorge
that led to the precipice. And the neat we had
reached the highest point, where the cliff, by a
bold prolectinn, butted over the stream. There was
a Itvel 'platform covered with tufted grass and upon
this we took a stand. We stood for some moments
gathering breath and nerving ourselves for the des
perate strnmk.
I cupid not help looking over the precipice. It
was a tearful .igbt. Below—in a vertical line, two
handrefeet:belaw—the stream , rushing through
the canon, broke upon a bed of sharp, jagged
rocks, and then gliding on in seething aeon-. bite
foam. There was no object between the eye and
the water, no jutting ledge—not even a tree to break
the fall—nothing but the spikeY boulders and the
foamir.g torrent that washed them. It was some
minutes before our, unnatural enemies made their
appearanery bat every Fowl sounded nearer and
Learerf Oaf trail was warm, and we knew they
were teen:ing ii on a run. At length the bashes
crackled, and we could see their, arhite breasts
gleaming throigh.the teem. A few more springs,
and the foremost blood hound bounded oat °port
the bank, and throwing up hie broad jaws, mugged
a hidermeggawl. . He was at belt where we had
entered the water. His comrades now dashed oat
of the thiCket, and joining in the chariot- of ifisap

Mild he hid reached the canon. This was where
we had made ear crossing. Hera the bound en
tered the channel, and sprigging from rock to rock, 1
reached the point where we had dragged ourselves
out of the water. A sheet yell announced to his
comrades that be had fitted the scent; and they all

There Was a mincemeat between the beetilers and

werelabetnlant on the opposite side of the river. I
accordingly resolved to halt here and hunt, and
drew my wagons up on the river's bank, within
thirty yank of the water, and about one hundred
yards from the native vfilage. Raving wispy).
ned, we at` once set about making fix the cattle a
kraal of the worst description, of thorn-oyes. Of
this I had now became very particnlar since my
severe loss by lions on the first of this month; and
my cattle were, at night, secured by a strong kraal,
which enclosed my two wagons, the bogie being
made fart to a nektow stretched between the hind
wheels of the wagons. I had yet, however, a fear
fur lesion to learn as to the nature and character of
the lion, of which I had at one time entertained so
little fear and on this night a horrible tragedy was
to be acted in my little lonely camp of so very aw
ful and appalling a nature as to make the blood
curdle in our veins. I worked till near sundown at
one side of the kraal. When the kraal for the cat
tle was finished, I turned my attention to the reek
ing a pot of barley broth, and lighted it fire between
the wagons and the water, close on the rivers bank,
under a dense grove of shady trey, making no
sort of a kraal around our sitting place for the

The Hottentots, without any reason, made their
fire about fifty yards from mine; they, according
to their usual custom, being satisfied with the
Atelier of a large dense bush. The evening pass
ed away cheerfully. Soon after it was dark we
heard elephants ' breaking the trees m the forest
semis the ricer, and once or twice I strode away
into the darkness some distance from tire fireside
to stand and listen to them. I little, at that mo
ment, dreamed of the imminent peed to which I
was exposing my life, nor thought that a blood
thirsty man-eater lion was crouching near, and on
ly watching an opportunity thawing into the kraal,
and consign one of es 6' a most horrible death
About three hours after the son went down I called
to my melt to come and take their coffee and sup
per, which was ready for them at my fire : and al
ter supper three of them ten:lined before their com
rades to their fireside, and lay down; these were
John Stables, Hendric, and Ruyter. In a few on
nines an ex came out by the gate of the kraal
and walked round the back of it. Hendric gin
up and drove him back • again, and then were
hack to his fireside and lay down. HentlrlF
sad Raper lay on ore side of the fee union
one blanket, and John Swint/is on the other. At
this moment I was sitting taking some barley broth ;
' our fire was very small, and die night was pitch
dark and windy. Owing to our proximity to the
native village the wood was very scarce, the Baka.
tar: having horned it all in their fires.
Suddenly the appalling and murderous voice of
an angry, blood-thirsty lion burst upou my ear with
ni a few yards of us, followed by the shrieking of
the Hninentota. Again and main the murderous
roar of attack "vas repeated. We heard John and
Roper shriek " The Iron the lion!" still fora le*
women*, we unintt he was but cluoiry one of
the dogs mind the kraal: but, next instant, John
'Sinfohn rushed into the midst of es almost speech
less with feat and terror, his eyes burning from
their sockets, and shrieked oat, “ The hos! the
I firm! He has gat Ilenthie; he &ag ed . him awe
from the fire beside me. I struck him with the
burning brands-bat be would not let go his bold. /
Ileudrie is dead ! Oh God ! Einadric is dead ; lei us
tithe fire and meek hit's" The rest of my people,
rushed about, shrieking and yelling as if they did
not stand still and keep quiet the lion would have
another of ;as ; and that eery /shady there was a
troop of them. I ordered the dogs, which were
nearly all fast, to be made loose, and the fire in
creased as far as could be. I then shouted Hen-
Ones name, bus all was still. I told my men that
Hendric was dead, and that a regiment of soldiers
could sot now help hint, and heating my dogs for
ward, I had every thing brontst within the cattle
kraal, when e-e lighted out fire and closed the en
trance as well as we could.
My terrified people sat round the' fire with•gurts
us their bands tall day broke, still fancying that
every moment the lion would return and resin
again into the midst of us. When the dogs were
first let go, the stupid brutes as degs often prove
when most required, ionised of going at the lion,
nulled fiercely on one another, and fought despe
rately for tome minters. Aker this they got wind,
and, going at him, disclosed to us his position ;
they kept spa enatineed boating until the day
dawned, the lion occasionally emingin; atter them
and driving them in upon the kraal. The horri
ble monster lay all ietda within forty ) . arila of us
consuming the snitched man whom be bad cho.
ven for his prey. He had dragged him into wind*
hollow as the bark of the thick bosh beside which
the fire was kindled, and there be remained till the
Jay dawned, careless of oar proximity. -
It appeared that when the unfortunate !dentine
nee to drive the ox. the lion bed watched him to
his fireside, and he had scarcely laid down when
the brute sprang spat him and Royter (tor both
la) under one blanket.) with his appal ling, mur
derous roar, and, roaring as he lay, grappled him
*ids his fearful claws, and kept biding trim on the
breast and shoulder, all tha while 'feeling for hit
seek ; having got bold of which, he at ouce din. /
god him away backward round the bosh into the
dense shade.
As the lion lay upon the unfortunate man s be
faintly cried, "Help me, help me ! Oh God! men
help me!" Aker which the tearful beast got hold
of his neck, and then all was still, except , that his
comrades beard the bones of his neck cracking be
tween the teeth of the lion. John' &Wales bad

The nest morning. just as the day began todawn
we heard the ham dragging somedringap the.river•
aide under cover el the bent. We drove theeattle
out of the kraal, and then pruceeded to holier:l the
scene of the night's ae•tut tragedy. jta the hollow
where the lion had lain consuming his prey. we
found one leg of the unketrusee Hendric, below
the keee, the shoe still an his toot; the grass and
bushes all stained with blood, and fragments °chi*
peacoat lay esound. Pete, 'Himilrie I I knew the
fragments or that old coat, 'end had Oen 'marked
them banging in the dense covers where the ele
phant had charged after my untoctunane after-rider.
Hendric was by fir the best man I bad about my
wagons, of a most cheerful disposition, a fine-rate
wagon-driver, fearless in the field, ever active,
willing, and obliging: his loss to us all was very
serious. I Feb contonmded and utterly sick in my
heart; I could not remain on the wagons, so! te
solved to go after elephants to dived my mind.—
I hid that morning heard them breaking the trees
in the opposite side of the river. I acconlingly
fold the natives of the village of my intentions, and
having ordered my people to devote the day to for
tifying thekraal, started with . Piet and Rnyter ae my
afteo,riders. It mesa very cookday: We crossed
the river, and at once took up the fresh spoor of a
troop of bull elephants. The bulls nufortunately
joined a troop of cows, 41 when we came on them
the dogs attacked the cola, and dwindle were off
in a moment, Wore we could even seethes. One
remarkably fine old row charged the &gra, I bunt
ed this cow and finished her with two shots from

had several sone who had become drunkards on
the faciliiies afforded by their education at home.

friends and enemies about equal in number. This
Lict prevented any outbreak, bet - Conld not urvent
the noise. •
Mr. Float mounted his platform, aid by a few
sharp sneedotes anJ 'witty sayings, soon silenced
the noise except the sturdy Bill Myer's. This old
Dutchman crying ciut, " Misiber Hunt, money
makes the mare go.". To every shot which term
ed ready to demolish him, the old fe - os presented
Cie one shield , " Mather limit, money makes the
mare go.
At last Mr. Hunt stopped and addressed the im
perturbaNe German: ‘' took here,,Bill Myers, you
say that money makes the mare go, do you."
'- Yes, that is just what I say, Mosher Haut." „
" Well, Bill Myers, you own and worka distille
ry, don't you ?" inquired Mr. Hunt.
" Pat is none of your busjness, Iklisther Hunt
But, den, I ish pot asJaanael of it. I bas got a still,

• " And you say " money makes the Mare goir do
you mean by that! come — here to `get money from
these people."
" Yes, Misther Mint, eat is just vrhat I mean."
Very Well; y'ou work's distilery to make
money, and as you say, c' money makes the mare
go," Bill Myers, bring out your "Mare and Ilk
bring nut mine, and well show them together."
By this time the whole asiembly was in a fires .
of delr,grit, and even Myers' kalowenscould not re
press their -Merriment at the evident embarrass

premise that Mr Hunt knew a large number of the
drunkards , . present and among them the sons of
Myers himself.
