'm FIGHT IN BOGTOWJf.
. " A CAPITAL SKETCH. '
, There is an ezcenent moral to the fol
lowing story wbieb is told with great
skill.' It ahows ' liow a 4 hole,' village
h sometimes torn to pieces by a fight be
tween two puppies.
; The niost re&arkable' fight on 'record
came ufi at FrrgtownPon the frontier, , of
Maine, some years agoi It engrowed the
entire community in one indiscriminate
melee interminable lawsuits , or suits at
law distraction of the town and its down
falUruin. " .
i . A fanciful genius, named Joe .Tucker,
a man about town, a lounger without vis-
able ' means of ; support a t do-nothing,
loafing, cigar-smoking, good-natured fcl
lo;owhed a dog; a sleek, intelligent,
and rather pretty beast, always at Joe's
heels, and known as well a? bis master,
'and liked far more by the" Frogtowners.
i un one clay Joe ana nu uojr were passing
Bdnuiu's grocery store, when a p:e bald,
ogly-looking dog, standing alonido
tfbod wagon bounded on W Joe Tucker's
dog knocked h'm heels over Iic".d, and
so frightened I5ob Carter's wife who wa3
passing towards her husband's blackamith
shop with his dionci, t'.at ehe stuu.bieJ
backwards, and her old sun-bonnet flupped
off, and scared the horse attached to the
wagon. He started, hit Lathereni's bar
ber pole, upct the load of wood, : all of
wLich falling down Gumbo's refreshment
cellar, struck one of Gumbo's children on
the hed, killed it fr'r a lliort time stooe
dead, and so alarmed 5!rs. Gumbo, that
she dropped a stew pan of boiling hot
oyttcrs into the lap of her customer, who
ast waiting for the savory cuncoctioa by
a table in the corner, instead" of the dish.
Mrs. Gumbo rushed for the child; the
customer fur the uoor. ' Mrs. Gumbo
screamed, the customer yelled !
"Oh ! oh ! oh-ob-oh, my poor child,
cried Mrs. Gumbo. '
"Eh, e-he-e e-c," screamed the pocr
'Oh, murder-r-rl Oh, my everlastiug
sir, I'm scalded to all eternity !".
"Murder, murder!" roared the. poor
The hoisc, a part of the wagon, and
some wood were on tVilrmud career. The
owner of the strauge dog came out of the
store just in time to see Joe Tucker seize
a rock to demolish tbe . savage dog, and
not waiting to see Joe let drive, gave him
such rap on the back that poor Joe fell
forty feet np the street, and strikiug a long
ladder npon which Jim' Edcrby was per
ched, paint-pot in hand, some thirty feet
from terra firms, brought ladder, Jim
and paint pot sprawling to earth, crip
liog poor Jim for life, and sprisEicg blue
paint ovdr the broadcloths, satiuets, and
calicoes of Abraham Miller, a formal ana
even tempered Quaker, who ran out of the
door just as the two dogis hsd faily got at
it, hip arid thigh, nip and catch. A glance
at things seemed to convince Abraham of
the true state of the case; act! in as un
usually elevated voice, Abraham called
out to Joe Tucker, who had righted up :
"Joseph Tucker, thy dog's a 6ghting!"'
"Let 'em fight it out," yelled the pug
nacious owner of the strange dog. . ,' Lst
them fight it out ; .,111 bet a log of wood
my dog can beat any dog in town, and . I
can beat the, owner."
Wc have said Abraham Miller was a
quiet man ; Quakers aie proverbiully . so.
Hut the gaunlet thrown down by tbe
stranger from tbe country stirred the gall
of Abraham, and he rushed into the store;
and from the back yard, having slipped
his collar, Abraham brought forth a brio
die cur, strong low and powerful."
;'Friend,"!said the excited quakcr, "thy
dog shall be well beaten, I promise thee !
Hyke, seize upon him !" ,
. "Truk, here boy I" . . , .
And the dogs went at it. -... -
Bob Carter, tho smith, coming, np in
time to hear the stranger's defiance to the
town, and bent on a fight with somebody
for the insult' and damage to his wife,
clamped the collar of the stranger, and by
a series of ten-pound-tens upon the face,
back and'" sides ' of his bully antagdnts,
with bis natural sledge hamtner,' Bob
stirred np the strengh and ire of the bally
stranger to the top of his compass, and
they made the sparks' fly dreadfully. ' '
, Joe Tuckers's dog reinforced by Abra
ham Miller's took a fresh" start, and be
tween' the two the strange dog-was being
cruelly put to birtrumps. -; Deacon Pagh

The Deacon, nothing' loth entered in-
tbe fight, aud we leave this to "nip and
tuck" to look to the stranger and Bob
Carter, who fought acd fit,' and ?t fought,
until Sauire Catchem and the constable
cams up, aud in the attempt to preserve
the peace and arrest the offanders, the
Siuire was thrust thro the window of a
neighboring watchmaker shop doing a fceaf
of daraags while lawyer Hooker, in nt-'
teuiptiug to aid the constable, was hit in
a mistake by the furious blacksmith in
the short ribs; and went reeling dovrn
Gumbo's cellar with frightful velocity.
Tho friends 'and fellow-church-men of
Deacon Pugh took eiJes against the Qua
ker antagonist, and then the shop boys
of Abraham, seeing their employer thus
beset,' came to the rescue, while two
Irishmen, full of fun and frolic, bcliev
st to be s "free figbt," tried their hands
and sticks npon the con.batants indiscrim

than hs!f an hour the li.ipp'y village of
Frogtown was shaken from its propriety

Heads and windows were smashed;
children and women screamed ; . dogs
barked ; and so furious, roxd, and excit
ed became the whole community, that a

A heavy thunder storm put an end to
tho row, the dogs were all more or less
killed, a child severely wounded, a map
scalded, wagon broke, the horse ran him
self to death, his owner badly beaten by
Bob Carter, whose wife and the wives of
many others were dangerously scared, the
painter was crippled, dry-goods ruined, a
Quaker and a Deacon, two Irishmen,
Joe Tucker, town constable, lawyer Hook
er, Squire Catchers', acd some fifty others
shamefully whipped. ' Lawsuits ensued,
