the following extract from a letter received
froin his correspondent , at Machias, (r)
dated .2d inst.
"On Tuesday last, three boys went a
few miles to catch, a deer. They followed
the track a mile or two, when they came
unexpectedly across a bear's den. They
had but one gun, and the boy who catried
it fired it into the dew, when out dame
two cubs, about a year or a yearend a half
old. The gun being diSeiarged, and the
boys hot having 61114 to load it„ ihrew it
away, but as each bad a knife, and the
cubs rim in opposite directions, one of the
boys followed one, and two followed the
other. They soon name "up with them,
clinched in with them, and despatched
them both with - their knives. They then
returned to the den, where_they fiiutid the
old bear, an enormous one, Weighing about
400 pounds. The gun shot had wounded
her in .the head, but she was ready for bat
tle. They fought her with club% until
they were tired; when at last one of them
getting a little wolfish, drew his knife,
and declared he would clinch her, if he
lied in the attempt. They did clinch,
and for the first half hours they went end
over end. "At last hid bruin seized him
- by the leg with her mouth, which gave
him an opportunity to use'hia kuife, which .
he did in such a manner sto compel her
to yield, and give up the host. The boys
then turned ton, dressed t e bear and cubs
handsomely, and went h me. The next
day-they went with a %le , and hauled the
whole to my store, whe they wer 4 ex
hibited to a large numberlof mile. ,The
old one would stand . as hilgh as a man—
say six feet,' and lotikefi as wicked as Sa-
tan himself. On the whole, I think it
was rather a- courageous I fight for three
