CROCODILE HUNTING. CROCODILE LIFE h SOOTS ASERICi. Don Ramon Paez has recently published in England a Book of Travels in South America, whroh contains some exciting ad ventures. Here is a sketch of . . Crocodile Life and Death. - While walking along the banka ot the Portuguesa one may see these huge lizards collected in groups of half a dozen or more basking in the sunshine near the water, with their jaws wide open till their ghastly palatesare filled with flies or other creatures alighting within them, t We tried in rain shooting them with gins ; the reptiles were so wary that the moment we took aim they rushed into the water. Being at a loss how to procure a subject for my pencil, I sought the advice of an old man, an angler by pro fession, who lived in oue of the huts near the river. He agreed to let me have his canoe, with his son to paddle it, and the re quisite number of harpoons, providing I could obtain the assistance of an Indian boy from the neighborhood, who wtts a capital marksman with the bo-v and ar row. 'What!' I exclaimed io astonishment; 'do we expect to kill one of these monsters with so slight a thing as an arrow ?' lNo, Ser.orito,' he exclaimed ; 'but you must first know where to find him under water before you can strike him with the har poon ; the arrow of which I speak we use in catching turtles.' These arrows are constructed so as t. al low the head affixed to the shaft some what in the manner of a lance, to come off the moment it strikes an object in the water A slender cord, several feei in length, con nects it with the shaft, which last is made of a light, buoyant reed; around this the cord is wound closely until it reaches the point where the bead is, then fastened se curely. The shaft being extremely light, floats on the surface of the water the mo ment it is set free from the bead of the ani mal thus acting as a guide for its recovery. The old angler then proceeded to explain that the operation must be conducted first by sending one of these arrows into the body of the crocadiie to mark his position under water ; and then if practicable, we might plunge a harpoon into the only vul nerable spot we could hope to reach, viz: the nap of the neck, after which the animal could be easily dragged on shore by means of strong ropes attached to the harpoon. Accordingly, I went in search of the In dian boy, whom I found under a tree, eeaied like a toad on his haunchei,- skin ning a porcupine he had just killed. At my approach he raised his head and fixed on me bis unmeaning eyes. When spoken to, bt only replied to all my question with the monosyllables ri, no. After a little coax ing, and the promise of some fish hooks, he followed me to ibe canoe without otter ing a word more. We were not long in getting a chance to test the skill of my new acquaintance. As we approached the river banks alarge croc odile hove in sight, floating down the stream like a log ot wood. Our position was most favorable to send an arrow ratteling through his scales, and my young Nimrod loot no time in improving the opportunity. Step ping a few paces in advance, and bending gracefully over the precipice, be let fly at the reptile's bead bis slender, yellow reed, por tlevacion, viz : shooting the arrow np in to the air at an angle of forty-five degrees, which causes it to descend with great force upon the object, after describing an arc of a circle in the manner of a bomb shell. Although the distance was fully three hundred paces, the arrow struck the mark with the precision of a rifle ball. A violent plunge of the huge reptile was the first inti mation that the trial had been successful, and the moment after 1 perceived the golden reed, now attached to him, skimming swift ly over the surface of the water. We hast ened for the canoe and immediately gave chae up stream, as the crocodile bad taken that direction. We were rapidly gaining upon him, when, alarmed at the sound of the paddles, he sank in very deep water, as we indicated by the reed. This circum stance .rendered it impossible to employ our harpoon. We tried ia vain to atart hire ; he stuck to (he muddy bottom, whence neither palls uor curses could move bim. We hoped thai in time he would come to the surface to breathe, and then wo might strike bim with a harpoon ; bat ia this we were equally disappointed. After wailing for bim two hours, we gave him op, along with the arrow bead sticking ia his own body. I made various other at tempts to secure a specimen, bat with no better result, as the river was yet loo high to sound ior them. . While in this place I was told several in cidents in relation lo the canning and in stinct of these saarians, one of which ap peared to be most remarkable in an animal of the reptile tribe. The ferryman here pos sessed a great many goats. One . day he perseived that several of them had disap peared, and, not being able to account for it in any other way, he at once laid the blame on . the bated crocodiles, although these creatures seldom carry their attacks beyond their own element. His suspicions he discovered in the end, were well found ed, having witnessed the destruction of one of his goats in a very singular mi.nner. It appeared that a crocodile had; in some mysienoas" way discovered that grots de light in jumping from place to placa, bat more especially from rocks and .raounds. Roekt however, beinj rather scarce ia tha , country their treacherous enemy undertook to gratify their taste for ibis innocent pas I time, and at the same time cater to his i own. Approaching the waters euge to , within a few feet of the bank, he swelled out bis back in such a manner as to give it the appearance of a small islasd or prom ontory. The stupid goats, perceiving this, varied their gambols by jumping from their i secure places on shore upon the seeming island, which they however, never reach ed, for the crocodile, tossing np his bead at the right instant, received them into his open jows, and swallowed them without difficulty. No person can venture - near the water without danger from their attacks, being so treacherous that they approach their itite , ed victim near enough to strike him with their powerful tails tefore be is even aware ol their proximity. The lubbeling sound of a gourd being filled in the' water by some imprudent person specially attracts them. To obviate this daoger, a calabash bowl, with a long wooden hande, is usually em ployed for the purpose ; yet even this is not anfreqoentty snatched them from the hands of the water carrier. If by accident a human being falls a prey to this tyrant of the river, the reptile i then called cebado, which appellation impels eve rything that is bold, ferocious, and treacher ous in animal of the species, as from that time they not only waylay persons, but fol low them in the canoes, in hopes ofnigain securing this dainty morsel. There are, however, men bold enough to meet the enemy face to face in his own element. The man who makes op bis mind lo this en counter is well aware that this mnst be a conflict to to the death for one of the antag gooists. The ferryman related to as a feat of gal lantry, worthy of a better cause, performed by a Llanero with one of these monsters. The man was on his way to San Jaime on a pressing errand. Being in haste to. get there the same day he would not wait lor the canoe to be brought to him, but pre pared to swim across, assisted by his horse. He had already secured his saddle and clothes upon his head, as is usual on simi lar occasions, when the ferryman cried out to him to beware of a caiman ce'tado, then lurking near the pass, urging upon him, at the same time, to wait for the canoe. Scor ning the advice, the Llanero replied with characteristic pride. 'Let him come ; I was never afraid of man or beast.' Then laying aside a part ot his ponderous equip ment, he placed his two edged dagger bet ween bis leeib and plunged fearlessly into the river. V He had not proceeded far when the mon ster ro&e and made quickly towards him. The ferryman crossed himself devoutly, and muttered the wholy invocation of 'Jesus, 'Maria y Jose ' fearing for the life, and, above all, for the toil of the imprudent trav eler. In the meantime, the swimmer con tinued gliding through the water towards the approaching crocodile. Aware of the impossibility of striking bis adversary a mortal blow unless he should reach the armpit, he awaited the moment until the reptile should attack him to throw his sad dle at him. This being accomplished so successfoly that the crocodile, doubtless imagining it to be some sort of good eating, jumped partly out of the water to catch it. Instantly Ihe Llanero plunged his dagger up to the very hilt into the fatal spot. A hoarse grunt and a tremendors splash show ed that the blow was mortal, for the fero cious monster sunk beneath the waves to raise no more. Proud of this achievement, and scorning the lardy assistance of the ferryman, who offered to pick him up in his canoe, he waived his bloody dagger in the air, ex claiming, ashe did so, 'Is there no other about here ? and then turning, he swam leasnrely back to take bis horse across. The cannero who related this adventure then added, 'So dslighted was 1 on that occaison that I killed ray fattest hen to treat the man to a good sancocho, for the caiman had de voured all my goats.'

Our country call us, what freeman can lag. While the old battle-call beats for the flag 1 Ire "Greenbacks" a Legal Tender ? ' This question, which has been occupy ing the attention of our State Courts for some time past, we are pleased to learn is soon to be argued before the Supreme Court of the United Slates, at Washington. We have no hesitation in saying that the decis ion of the Sapreme Court of the United States as to whether "greenbacks" are a le gel tender in payment of debts, will com pletely explode the paper bubble of Secre tary Chase, and put an effectual stop to the extravagant speculations which are now being carried on by political gamblers at the expense of the national credit. The enormous circulation of paper money is jost now beginning to be seriously felt in every branch of trade. It has inflated the prices of the actual necessaries of life to an alarming figure, and unless speedily check ed mnst end in a revulsion which will bring ruin and destruction to every branch of industrial pursuit. Indeed, in a bhort lime "greenbacks" will be of as little value lo the holder as the continental money is sued during the revolutionary war. The depreciation of the continental money arose solely from the fact that the States is suing it, had no gold or silver to redeem it when it became doe, and the consequence was that the holders of continental money were heavy sufferers by the foolish experi ment to make paper promises to pay equiv alent to gold and silver. After the declara tion of peace and the recognition of the in dependence of the United States, one hun dred dollars in continental money would scarcely purchase a breakfast. That will soon be the case with, "greenbacks." If Secretary Chase were called open to redeem his promise to pay, he would not be able to furnish one dollar in gold for ev ery hundred he has issued in paper money. In fact the only thing which has thus far kept "greenbacks'7 in circulation has been the law of Congress making them a legal tender in payment of debts, and their re demption in United States bonds upon which the government promises to pay six per cent, interest in gold. Even now they are at a discount of over fifty per cent, and it is easy to see that we are rapidly ap proaching a financial crisis which will soon establish the fact that no government, or banking institution, can long sustain its credit unless it is based upon a gold and silver basis. A bank that is enable to re deem it notes in gold and silver coin, is justly regarded as insolvent, and is soon compelled to close its doors. This doctrine holds equally good with governments. It may require a longer period of lime than in ordinary banking operations, but in pro portion to the time it may require to bring about such a state of affairs, will be the ruin and misery entailed upon the country. At the time of the passage of ihe law by Congress, it was predicted by some of the ableBt men in that body that it would pro duce precisely th results which we have experienced. It is useless for the abolition papers to cry out against speculators ; the evil is in the paper bubble of Secretary Chase, which has been swelled to such proportions that an explosion may take place at any moment. No government can dispense with gold and silver coin without sinking into hopeless and irredeemable bankruptcy, and it has never been attempt ed by any Secretary of the Treasury, until the advent of the present imbecile and fa natical abolitionists, who now, onfotunately for the country, fills that office. The only power delegated to the United States by the Constitution on this subject, is to be found in Article 1st, Section 7th: "To coin money, regulate the value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the standard of the weights and measures; to provide for the punishment of counterfeiting the securities and current coin of the United States." It is very evident to every reflecting mind that the framers of the Constitution never intended that anything but gold and silver coin should be osed as money by the Uni ted States Government. They aloce are recognized by the Con stitutioa as forming the "current coin of the United States," and as such, were designed by tha fathers of the Republic as a circala ting medinm. Id Sectiou 9 of Article 1, it is expressly provided that do State shall "make anything bot gold and silt er coin a tender ic payment for debts," and it can not be supposed that a Confutation which only recognizes gold and silver coin ab a tender in payment of debts on ihe part of the several States, has conferred upon the general government the right to make pa per money a legal tender. The right "10 borrow money on credit of the United States," is expressly granted, and is the on ly provision In the Constitution by which a depleted Treasury can be replenished. At the time of the adoption of the Constitution, the people of the several States had realiz ed too fully the evils arising from the Con tinental money to place any confidence in j anything but a metalic currency. A Con stitution which recognized any other could not have been ratified by the people acd the States. M. Madison tells us in the Fed eralist'' that the claase in ihe Constitution prohibiting the States from making any thing but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debts, was inserted io prevent a repitiiion of the evils which bad arisen from the issue and circulation of paper money during the revolutionary war. To suppose that the Supreme Court of the United States, which has uniformly held gold and silver to be the currency of the government, will recognize "green backs" a legal tender in payment of debts, is to suppose an absurdity. The Constitu tion confers no power upon Congress be yond that which is expressly delegated. The law is clearly in violation of the Con stitution, and will be declared so by the Su preme Court of the United States. It is vain to attempt to Dotster up a paper currency. Our whole experience as a na tion, from the revolutionary war up to ihe present time, has proveti the otter fa mily of attempting to elevate it to the dignity of money. The evils which it has entailed opon the people, have always been greater than those which it was intended to remedy, j During the Presidential term of Gen. Jack son that distinguished hero and statesman felt it lo be his doty to oppose the re char ter of the U. S. Bank, opon the ground that such an institution was not only unconsti tutional, bot dangerous to the liberties of the people. If a monied institution was dangerous to the liberties of the people un der an administratiou like that oi General Jackson, which recognized the reserved rights of the States and the liberty of ihe citizen, how much more dangerous It it in the hands of men who ignore the Constitu tion, trample under foot the rights of the States and violate the libertv of the citizen. ! and who br Congressional enactments hae endeavored to place both the puree anti sword in the hands of sn unscrupnlous Executive. It is high time ihat we should pause and reflect. The liberties of the people are no longer sale. ToUaviUe Stand- crj What is the People' Remedy. We ark all Democrats to consider well the alarming nature of the privilege of con trol over the ballot-bpx now openly claimed by the Black Republican party. The or gans of the' Administration no longer seek to disguise the intention to disfranchise a portion of the citizens of the Republic- The Tribune assumes the responsibility of jodging what manner of men shall exercise the elective franchise,, and directly aks les :' Two men, after drinking and carous whether such or suoh citizens "ought to vote ing all night at a saloon, started in the in a Border State in a crisis like the pres j morning to go home. It was a beautiful eot " Alluding to the refusal of th De tany morning, and as they staggered along, mocracy of Delaware to vote under con- j the following conversation afo : straint, it mockingly asserts that "the coon Inebriate No. 1' How bright (hic) the comes down," thus signifying that the Ad ministration had gained its end, and had contemplated such an exercise of arbitrary power as would render futile the efforts of the Opposition. If this system of military interference with elections is to be confirmed and ap plied to the next Presidential election, the coon has no alternative but to come down or be brought down by the aim of tyranny, antes indeed he show his teeth. We ac knowledge the significance of the Tribune's taunt. It is true that a power is armed against the people with which it is in vain to cope unless with equal weapons. Il is true that there is no escape from injustice, insolence and outrage, except in 'be mag- ..j , .. . who hold the absolute scepter, and we have already been rudely taught thai those attri butes exist not iu our rulers. Moral resist ance is of no avail against those who are ruled by fanaticism and who rule with sword and bayonet. The coon was at the mercy of Captain Scott, and they are at the mercy of the Administration. So far the similitude is striking, and we congratulate our colemporary upon its aptness in paral leling. But may the trapper not err as to ihe na ture of the game he tracks 1 May he not have a lion in the toils, with strength lo rend the meshes and courage to stand at bay 1 It is a fearful hunt when ambition ventures into the domain of Liberty and strikes at such noble quarry as the most sa cred rights of freemen. It would be more generous and more prudent for the Radical presB lo abstain a while from levity and sar casm upon so grave a theme as the des truction of the elective- franchise. The De mocracy have "come down," but not in ihe spirit of humility and fear. They trusted to the legitimate weapons of political war fare. They were tenacious of ibeir faith in the influence of a long tried principle to re deem the land from error. They were loth to believe that It was possible for an en lightened and free borne people to pass in three years from Repoblicanism to bond age. They' hesitated to accept the now glaring and humiliating fact that military dictation sways their rightful suffrages and transforms the bs Hot-box into an engine of despotism. All outrages short of this have been endured, in the hop that the ballot box could not be tampereJ with, , and that it would ultimately work out their redemp tion. They beheld the armed band drag ging the citizen at midnizht from his home; tbey were eonsciou that their most preci ous judicial prerogative, the writ of habeas corpus, had been virtually annulled they permitted Conscription to realize its own inpoience and absurdity, they submitted to insult and snffered fanatics, demagogues, and contractors to impugn their motives and assail their patriotism. , They bore all this in ihe hope that the ballot box still remain ed to them, a eanttaafy that power dare not assail and that bayonets could not perpe trate. That hope has vanished, and there remains no barrier between the people aod despotism. There most be remedy for this nnaatn ral political condition. It can not be that a people not only educated to freedom, but nurtured under the enobllng influennce of enlightenment, will permit their last refoge from oppression to be denied them. It mutt not be thai the next Presidential elec tion shall be controlled by the armies of the administration. What is the remedy ? Protestation is of no avail, the laws are held at naught by Federal officials, the States have apparently yielded their sovereignty, and neglect to potect their citizens from unlawful imprisonments, from exile, from unconstitutional edicts and arbitrary vio leuce. The situation invites the will of ly- Jannv 10 "8eft ,ts Pmacy Absorbed in the contemplation of military events, the people take no note of their own helpless ness and debasement. The months roll on, bringing as close opon an election which more than any other has been held In this country, should be decided by the fall, free and unhindered expression of the popular sentiment. There is no shade in altraism of political opinion that should be debarred i's privilege of expression at that election. The right and' the wrong alike are entitled to vote, and ihe more extreme their eoo tfarie'y of opinion, the more essential is it that there should be no monopoly of the right of suffrage. Yet we have it proclaim' ed in advance that such or such a man "ought not to vote." If an Administration organ dares thus early advance such a per nicioos doctrine, it is certain that the Ad ministration will dare to establish it at the 1 P0'1" Pon e'Ction day If bayonets shall i ce empioyea to eniorce mat uocinne, ana If the shameful military dictation exercised in Delaw8 and Maryland shall beaitempN ed throughout the North at '.the Presdential . leclioa. bere is but one remedy. Oof j Revolutionary fathers taught as that there j r -i . - is but one remedy asainsl peristent and reckless despotism. God grant that their descendants may not be obliged in that par ticular io follow their example. Aw York Ileus. Sew or (hic) Mootr ? During the deliv ery of a recent temperance Isctore, M'j Gough tells one of the funniest and most characteristic stories we remembered ever to have seen. It is more thoroughly maud lin ar.d mellow than anything in the "Tood- moon shines !' No. 2 'Yoa don't call that (hic) moon, do ye Thai's (hic) sun.' No. 1 : Taint it's (hic) moon.f No. 2' I tell ye it's sun !' No. I 'Well, let's leave (hic) matters to first man we meet.' No. 2 '-Agreed.' The two toddled along for a short distance when they chanced to meet a man ia the same condition with themselves. The in dividual was immediately treated to the following interrogation : No. 1 "I shay (hic) old fellow ! We've got inter little spute ; warn ye to 'elp us out. My frien here says that's the eon, pointing upwards to Old Sol who was blaz ing fiercely down opon them.) and I aay it's moon I' The person addressed braced himself, after considerable difficulty, against a lamp post, and thSn commenced to scrutinize, as well as he could," ihe burning orb over headrepeating in a meditative tone ef Voice : 'Sun moon sun (hic) .' After a short observation, be exclaimed t 'Fact is, gent'lmen, I'm a stranger in this part (hic) of the country, and 1 can't tell whether it's sun or (hic) moon.' Thus the matter was undecided, and the two inebriates, baffled and disheartened by the unsatisfactory result of their search into astronomical mysteries,reeled away. Important I HfORMAHow. Col. J. G.
