The citizens of Minesota aro at present
in n statu of excitement arising from a ia
titer unusal cause. It is not tho stirring
news from Phil Sheridan, not the advanco
of Grant nor yet the rebel invasion of the
West, which disturbs their equinanity ;
neither is it an onslought of Indians on
their unprotected towns. It is none of
these, anil yet it is the inroad of an enemy

the red man, one of the most pestilent and

thcro when wc arrived, exoept a few hip
popottaini, and wc were, therefore, obliged
to aw nit tho coming of some moro palata
ble game. Our pitlcncc, however, '.vas
severely taxed, and, alter a lung delay,
wo were about to ''bag" a hippopotamus,
when an attendant perched in a trco about
a hnlf a jtiilo distant began waving his
blanket. Th is was a sign il that patno
was approaching. We immediately drew
into cover, and awaited tli'u coming of the
We wcro not long delayed, for presen
tly 1 long column of animal, from tho
elephant to tbo hoodoo, appeared in view,
trotting at a good pace to the river, Their
flanks wcro eoon presented to ns,and each
selecting His object, fired. M Coll shot a
fine you- g buffalo, whilt-t Captain Grant
was equally successful with a hoodoo, and
several spears, oast by our attendants,
stopped the career of ono or two different
animals of tho herd.
At this juncture, however, occurred an
unexpected adventure, that finished our
sport, nt least for that day. I bad sprung
forward immediately after firing in order
tn obtain a fair shot at a huge elephant
that I wanted to bring down on account of
bis immenc tik. 1 c't tbo desired aim,
and pulled the Irlggcr of my second bar
rel. At the moment of my doing to a
wild cry of alarm, uttered by ono of tho
blacks, called my attention. Glancing
around, my eye chanood to rango up in
the foliage of the tree bcncaih which Capt
Grant and myself had lain for several
hours previous. My feelings may possi
bly ha imagined, as I beheld an enormous
boa constrictor, who.-e head and neck pro
iucting some distance into view, showed
that he was about to make a fatal spring.
His direction was certainly towards me;
and as he fhshed from his position like n
thunder-bolt, I gavo myself up, for ere
aid'could reach me, the folds of tho nion
ster would have crushed my strong frame
into a quivering pulp. I fell, seemingly
caught in a whirlwind of dust, and
strange indescribable scuffle ensued.
In the midst of this strife I suddenly
became conscious of tho presenco of
second victim, nnd oven after tho tfme
that has elapsed sinco then, I still rccol
lect with what a vividness tho though
shot across my mind that this second vie
tim was Captain Grant, my noble com
nauion. At last, after being whirled
about for several scoonds, each second
scorning to be interminable, thcro ensued
a lull, a stillness as of death and I opcu
cd iny eyes, expecting to look upon those
unexplored laudecapes which arc seen
only in the country bovond tho tomb.
Instead of that T saw Captain Grant le
cliDg his rifle towards mo, while standing
beside and behind him wero tho blacks in
every conceivable altitude and most in
I5ut in a moment I comprehended all
Tho huge serpent had struck a young buf
benumed arm, uocoutroled by my
might fall from tbo cushion like bed in
which it lay And such a mishap might
bring tbo tp iro fold around my nock or
ohest, and then farewell to tho eourcea of
tho Nile Oh, how hardly, how despo
ntely I struggled to command my self?
I glanced at Grant, and saw him handlo
ing bis rifle anxiously. I glanced at tho
negroes, and saw them gazing as though
petrified with astonishment.
I glanced at tho serpent's loathsome
head and saw its bright,doadly cyc8,watoh
iuc for tho beast rcntilo losscncd its fold
n my arm a hair's.brcatb, and now.'a lit
o rH'oro, until half r.n inch separated my
arm nnd its mottlotl skin. I could havo
whipped out my, hand but dared not tako
tho risk, Atom of time dragged tbsm
selves into aces, and a Diiiiutc secmod
eternity itself I Tho second fold wai re
moved entirely and tbo ono was casing.
Should I dash away now or wait a moro
favorable moment I I decided upon tho
tho former ; and, with lightning speed, I
bounded away toward Grunt, tho crack, of
whose piece 1 heard at lUo instant. For
the first time in my life, I was thoroughly
overcome and sinking down I remained
in a semiconscious stato several minutes.
When I fullv recovered Grant and tho
ovcijoycd negroes held mo up aBd point-
ed out tho boa, who was still writhing in
his death agonies. I. shuddered as I
looked upon tho effects of his tremen
dous dying strength. Tor yards around
whero ho lay, grass and bushes and sap
lings, oud in fact everything except the
moro fully grown trees, wcro cat clean off
as though they had been trimmed with
an immense scythe. This monster,
when measured, was ..fty-or.o feet two

body, tho girth was nearly threo feet,
