the banks oflhe-Gonnnee river,-this animal
abounds ; and'oui - first instance of a < •“•wolf
nurse” occurs in that district. A trooper
passingalong the river hank nerir-Ghandour,
saw a large female wolf leave her Hen, fof.

boy went on’all foiirs’ apparently on the •best'
possible terms' with’ hiS- fierce companions,

they wero' rißqul to turn ba'clt," pushed oh in
order to cut q(T arid secure . the boy. But
the ground was uneven, and his” horse could
not overtake them. All re-entered the den,
and 'he trooper then assembled' some people
from, Chandour, with pickaxes, who dug inlp
the den for about six or eight feet, when ' the
old wolf boiled followed by her three cubs
pnd the boy. The trooper, accompanied ,by
the /let.test young mep of ihe.parly, mourned
and. pursued ; and having last headed
them, he turned ifie whelps and the bpy (who
ran quite as fasi),-bhpk, upon the men on

I have .a doubt whether ihevegetariaosi
don’t push their-programme a little too far id'
soma respects—whether they arenottooin*
tolerant and sectarian.. I have met with per*
sons who ore bigoted and dogmatical on the
subject,-and who have openly declared that
they could not love. me, could not associate
With me, or. .have any sympathies withme,
so long as I would eat meat I i would have
them explain some .discrepancies; I would
have-them detnarkalfe their propaganda a little
niora clearly. I would .like to .be .informed
whether butler and milk are proscribed
whether eggs are "unlawful; whether cheese
isccoiraband,; And what becomes of bonnie*

and is nn oyster animal or vegetable? May
be-awallow a clam? . May .he sup the tpttp
of a clam, or na.oyster ? May ho sraell one

■ I am wholly unable to say whether (jab*
oyster, clam, crab, lobster, and the whole
family of moilusca.are orthodox or not, {
suspect that pigeon, plover, lark, quail, flick*
er,' woodcock, &e., are heretical and obnox*
ions-; but what to make of the creatures that
operand shut,.such as the clam,oyster, lur*
tie torloisemnd terrapin, I cannot opine, ,1 am
pretty well satisfied that the whole pastry
business has gone by the board; buthow the
soup trade is affected is-a question. It has
been out of fashion, to be pure, since the laat
presidential election ; but that.may be owing
to the surfeit from the Aas/ymanoerjn.which
it was then swallowed. -
