It is now ses'eral years since I was
returning- froin• the- NOrthwesterri
District of Lake Superior. Winter
with all its winds and deep snows
had, already set in, and instead of
the usual lake voyage, my journey to
the land of civilization had to tke per
formed in a sleigh. Each day I took
my way, over roads whose ruts the
snow had filled, while my horses' bells
rang gaily out through the snow clad
forest whose pendant icicles- flashed
in the sun's rays like. a fruitage of
- We had passed Lake Superior and
were threading the foresta• bordering
on Lake Huron, when one evening
we Caine to a better cultivated farm
than usual, where the scraping of fid
dles and the echoing of the music an
nounced one of those blithesome frol
ics with which the settlers at inter
vals-lighten -the monotony of back
woods life.
But it soon appeared that this was
an extraordinary festival, being for
the bridal of 'our host's daughter,
whom all these friends, who came
from many miles around, were to ac
company to . see the knot tied on - the
morrow. What a jOyful scene it was.
The sun shone on our unwearied
revels, ushering in the wedding day;
and then one and all—for I deferred
my journey in honor of the occasion
prepared to. escort the bride on her
'through many of the backwoods
settlements clergymen have never
passed, and troth are lawfully plight
ed before the nearest magistrate.
But 'on the present aecasionit chanc
ed that a clergyman was visiting his
brother-in-law at a farm some twen
ty miles distant, and the marriage
was hurried that the bride might have
the advantage of a "parson wedding.
My two-horse sleigh being the best
appointed vehicle in the company, I
placed it at the bride's
,disposal, and
we were soon speeding through the
forest, followed by a bevy of , sleighs
and trains filled with a laughing
crowd; and while the sleigh-bells
rang out the.merriest bridal peals the
young settlers played wild choruses
upon their horns, until the woods
echoed With their minstrelsy. •
Abput midday we reached our dear
tinatiOn. Om- fair bride seemed • al
most scared to find hew solemn were
the words which - bound her to share
the burden as well as the joys other
bridegroom, though she plighted her
vows in a trembling but earnest voice
and smiled happily as he handed het
into the sleigh for the return journey.
Again we swept through the bush
with laugh and jest. My high-bred
horse, fresh as when we started; soon
outsped the heavy steeds of the - other
tmvelers,_and left them out of sight
and hearing. Let us go bythe lake
shore," cried the bridegroom, " then
you'll see the ' tumble,' and we 'will
be home before the others are."
The idea was highly approved by
the new made -wife, and as I was ,
soinewhat weary of the monotony of
The woods, I readily agreed. Between
= us and the shore was a:winding- gfF
ley filled with frozen . snow, which
soon brought us to the broad belt of
ice bordering , the lmut. • Beyond was
the lake, which, as far as we could
see, stretched a vast expanse of blue,
refreshing to the eye wearied by the
universal whitenes& Troubled' by ei
recent gale, the lake heaved and roll
=ed in heavy whose very action
'was cheering'amid tlie desd.st3ll**,
Meanwhile we bowled merrily along
over the wavy ice, 'Which ilashottindl

her bright hope and fqr the life she
must render up, but for the sudden
parting from the belcived ones she
should never see again.
The moon rose in the deep blue
sky, making night beautiful, and
flooding our ice emit with he silvery
light, quivering:in, broken rays on
the broad lake which now rolled in
waves around us, and shining like a
glory on the distant hills, giving us
one more glance at earth.

The.wind, straight from the frozen
North, swept over the lake ' in gusts,
and seemed - to pierce us like icy ar
rows, and though wrapped in heavy
sleigh furs, and crouched within its
narrow limits, we could Scarcely en,
dure the rigor of the nighcand;worse
than all, our fair companion had to
share these hardships, with no pro
tection save the most sheltered corner
of the sleigh and the warmest wrap

Day at length broke on this long
night of misery. The current' Of the
lake had swept us out of sight of the
IVe told Ofirselves we 'had . no hope
of rescue, yet long and anxiously we
watched the circling horizon for some
sign of coming aid, and it was with
deep despondency we discovered that
as far as the eye could reach,

wia ideating but 'awl sky; save
on the spot some five miles distant,
where floated a fragment of our raft,
which cracked from the commence-
Ment, had parted during the night,
bearing away with it our horses. And
as the day wore on another hardship
was added—that of hunger. Since
the preceding morning we had eaten
nothing, and our long exposure made
the want sorely felt. Though many
birds flew over thelake, not - one came
within reach of our rifles.', .
1 , Two days passed, and no words
ban tell the intensity of our suffer
ings as we floated on our frozen pri
son, and when the third day broke
upon us, cold and exhaustion -were
fast doing, their work, • and we -lay
helplessly in the corners of the sleigh.
But the young bride still bore
. up.
Whether it was the , unbroken for
of her youth sustained her, or that
marvelous endurance of her sex which
lois so often - carried them through
wreck and tempest, I know not, but
she was still comparatively strong,
and' while 'she drew our covering
closely around us she earnestly en ,/
treated us still to hope and trust. /
.I began to think with horror that
a time would shortly come when' the
unhappy girl would be le ft alone up-4
on the ce ,•
Thus another night closed.
As the hours passed a furious storm
arose.upon the lake, belting its

It does not attack its prey openly,
neither, as some .have said, does, it go
on shore for that purpose. It watch
es to see whether any animal comes
to drink, and than, ,sinking beneath
the surfade of the water, moves rapid 4
ly, rises unexpectedly beneath the
unsuspecting victim, seizes it with a
sudden map, of its huge jaws, and
drags it beneath the water. Should
the intended prey be too far from the
water to be reached by the month, or
So large that it may offer a successful
resistance, the Crocodile strikes it a
tremendnous blow with its tail, • and
knocks it into the water. The dwell-.
err on the - Nile bank say that a large
Crocsdile will with a single blow of
its tail ;meek all the four legs of an
oz or a horse. , . ,
These cunning reptiles even' con
trive to catch birds as they come for
water. On the banks of the Nile the .
smaller- birds drink iu a very peculiar
manner. They settle in numbers ort
the flexible branches . that overhang
the stream, and when, by their weight
the branch bends downwards, they
dip their beaks in, the water. The
Crocodile sees afar off a brunch thus
loaded, swim:ins near as possible, and
then dives until it can see the birds
immediately above it, when. it rises
suddenly, and with a snap of its jaws
secures a whole mouthful of the un
suspecting birds. -
Sir S. Baker, in his travels on the
Nile gave much attention to • the
Crocodile, and Las collected a vast
amount pf interesting information
about the reptile, much of .which is
peculiarly valuable; inasmuch as it il
lustrates the Scriptural notiteil of the
creature. He states that it is a very
crafty animal, and that its usual Mode
'of attack is by first ; showing itself,
then swimming slowly away to a con
siderable distance, so,as to make its
intended victim think that danger is
over, and then returningunder water.
It is by means of thiamanceuver that
it captures the little birdS., It first
makes a dash at them, open-mouthed,
causing them to take to flight in ter
ror. It then sails slowly away, as if
so baffled that it did not intend to
renew the attack. When it is, at a
considerable distance, the birds think
that their enemy has departed, and
return to the branch, which they
crowd more than ever, and iu a min
ute or two several dozen, of them are•
engulfedin the mouth,of the Croco
dile, which has swiftly dived under
them. On one occasion, Sir S. Baker
was walking near the edge of the riv
er when ho heard" a great shrieking
of women on the .opposite bank. t
turned out that a number of women
had been filling their "gerbas" (wat
er-skins)• when one of them - was sud
denly attacked by a large Crocodile.
She . sprang back, and the reptile, mis
hiltuig / the filled garbs for a woman,
seized it, and gave the owner time to
escape. It then ,dashed at the rest of
the women, bitt •. only succeeded in
seizing another print. A short time
/ previously a Crowdile, thought by
the natives to be the .same individu
al, had if, woman and carried.
her off; and another bad made an at
tack on ' a man in a very curious man
ner. . A number of men wore swim
ming across the - river, supported
after their etisken, on gerbas inflated
with air, when one of them felt him
self seized by the leg by a Crocodile,
which tried; to drag 'him under water.
however, retained his hold. •on
the skin, and his companieni also
grasped hie arms and hair with one
hand, while with.the other they struck
with their spears at the Crocodile.
At last they succeeded in driviugcthe
reptile away,. and got their unfortu
nate companion to land, where they
found that the whole of the flesh was
stripped from the knee of the leg
downwarde. The poor man died
shortly afterwards. 'These crafty rep
tiles also try to catch the babooas by
laying hi-wait for them at their drink
ingplaces; but the baboons are Ken

Years ago Mr. Dimmock, the keep
er of one of thehotels now conducted
by his son, was a leading member of
Whig party in Milford, Pike county,
Penn. He used to attend to the
most of the party machinery, and
like our fathers fond of "smiling" oc
casionally. About 1850 Horace Gree
ley started from'New York for that
village. By some means he missed
the stage at Mildletown. Coming on
to Port Jervis, eight miles from
there, he likewise missed , the stage
at that point. Now it so happened
that the "host" had been "smilin"
that afternoon and felt unusually sa
lubrious. • As Horace entered the bar
room, lookingvery seedy, he walked
up the
counter and pointing to his
dusty garments, requested Dimmock
to give him a pail in which he might
1 >
bathe his fit But the. latter, in his
exhilara frame of mind, mistook
our Tribune hiosopher fcea beggar,
and'roughl replied . : "You:d—cl old
hog,. go and wash in the water trough
there. " Dimmock never, heard
the last of that unfortunate response
—made .to one of the leaders of his
own piuty—not even after he Went
into the Democratic organization.
To the day of his death he used to be
plied with reminiFcensea of Greeley
and the trough story. Since then
Mr. Greeley has hated Pik - c0 county
with honest hatred.

. "Yes,-perhaps ; but it•ii bad for

'don't believe - snail have a crop."
• A few days after this •when'the sun
was shining hot,- I said :
• "frine sun for.yiir corn sir." . •
• "Yes pretty fair, but . awful for

Again, on a cold moring, I met my
neighbor, andsaid' l :••

" Yes, but it, is the very worst
weather for the corn and grass. They

The lesson inculcated in the follow
ing brief sketch is worth studying
A green, rustic lad came years ago '
to the metropolis from a Connecticut
killiage. At home he, had done well
in an honorable way, but he had read
and heard of the wonderful city. lie
Made up his mind he could 'do,--some
thing in it. When he -reached the
city no place seemed- open to him..
Day after day he hunted for business.
Want starred him in the face. He
would 'not go back to his• 'friends:
Dropping into a large dry goo&
house one day in search for work, be
chanCed to come face to face with the
proprietor. • ' •
"We.have nothing for you to do.
sir," this great business man - said iii
reply to his inquiry, " but stay, what ,
can yen do ? " he. 'continued, '" yon
seem io be an honest looking lad.
" Oh, sir, I etin do° anything = only
try me. Only
-F ive me 'a chance to
do something ! And-the tears - came
out and trickled down the cheeks of
the alinost discouraged, forlorn' boy,
though he tried as , hard as he could'
to repress them. "I will lake the.
poorest place; and do my bdst." •
He was engaged and. set to Work.
He was sent down to the cellar, and
commenced his business career in
ton .`York by pounding bent
which had been thrown in a pile 'be
'side the packing boxes, so they could
be used. This was his work for two
weeks, and he barely kept body 'and
soul together on the pay-he received:
Then he was put in a better.. plaCe.
Then'he rose to be a clerk, 'and no
'clerk hard-working, so: faith
ful, so interested in this;great 'house
as hiniself. Ho saw his chance and
counted up in his own busy brain
every pciint in the game.
In five years from that time he sat
on the inanagei's seat andhammered
the crooked ins and outs of the-busi
ness straight.
During his clerkship he never miss
ed a day ; and no morning went . by
without 'reporting promptly at seven .
o'clock: He saved money and pros
pered as the years went by.. Go up
Broadway to-day, and- you will see
his name in golden letters over . the
entranee to ono of the largest anal
finest establishmerifs. In that build-,
in. there are seventeen million dollars
worth of stock. His trade extends
i• •
all over the land. His' 'fortune is °
princely. And even now,.tlfpngii the
great•merchant is-getting • gray, and:
the old time energy is. waxing slow,
newlight.will come into his eyes,
and a new life to-his form, when
. he
tells of thoie past 'dais of Striking,
and says to the young men- around
hint- 7
• " Work, if you. Wbuld succeed. Be
a true, *faithful, earnest clerk if you
would beconie a merchant Of position
and importance." .

nervous woman in the midst of her
friends preferring to entertain them
with a hst of the racking pains she
has suffered to a saunter in God's free
air and sunshine, we cannot wonder
that the, rose returns not to her'
