A DEER-I1UNT ON THE BOQUET.
It was a glorious morniug in October. The
first glance of the sua as his rays rested on the
mountain-tops around the little village of
Elizabethtown, revealed a sceno of surpassing"
beauty. ! The hill-sides seemed inlaid with
mosaics of most brilliant colors. The frost
king had touched them with his magic wand,
and autumn stood revealed in her magnificence.
The bright red tinge of the soft maple, the
deeper and more substantial hue of the oak,
the golden yellow of the beech and the elm,
the pale emerald of , the basswood, the fiery
scarlet of the - sumach,' all these mingled in
wild profusion and interminable variety, while
here and there among them, as if to give re
newed assurance that spring-time should again
revivify the earth, stood the unchanging and
brilliant green of tho balsam and the pine. In
the little valley below, the pale grass was crisp
with the white frost, and as the warm rays of
un rested on the fences and the roofs of the '
farm-houses, the sparkling crystals faded
slowly, inch by inch,bcncath theirpower, like
the shadows of a. dial, and vanished in tir.y
wreaths of vapor. I doubt if the world can ex
hibit a richer or more varied display of au
tumn foliage than this little valley of Eliza
beth. Hemmed in by a spur of the Adiron
dack range, whose abrupt and ragged moun
tains surround and seem ready to overwhelm
it, it rests in beauty, like a jewel in the rock,
gathering aa added brilliance from the rough
ness e-f its setting. : . - . : ;
'TThat a morning for a scent!' said old Sher
iff L'" , a? he stepped from his piazza' in the
gray of'the dawn. 'Halloo, Harry ! get up, and
ltft's have a hunt. - Fly would scent a track at
forty rods this morning.' 'With such an invi
tation.' to dress and eobbl uo a breakfast was
but brief work.- v .
Go call Archibald and Abels. ; Tell them to
bring the dogs, and we'll have a great time.'
Now, the said Archibald John Archibald,
but generally known as Archy' was the char
acter of the county. In the vi.qor and prime
of his manhood, ho possessed many traits of
character to remind one of Cooper's 'Leather
Stftcking.' - An excellent hunter, cool, keen,
and sagaciocs: loving his dog and his gun
more than ho did most of his family like
Leather-Stocking,' fearing the faco of no
man, but unlike mm, fearing neither God nor
tho devil; - He was honest, becauso it was Lis
nature to bo'so, and perfectly good tempered,
unless bis do? or his riiilii were abused: then
his anger and his profanity, knew no bounds.
But the over-ruling trait of his "character was
an unbounded love of fun and frolic. Of ail
earthly things, he loved a practical joke the
most. ' Friend or foe, it mattered little to him,
if ho could but perpetrate ; soma broad joke,
which . should et the crowd in a roar at their
Abels came first, a rather short, thin man:
with a cold, gray eye, which never looked you
square in the face,' and whoso whola count e

most entirely on a bed of naked boulders.
Hence its name. - It has no perpendicular fall,
but its roar can b easily heard iu a still night
for a mile and a half. . V, '
;, Every thing seemed in readiness, and all
seated in the wagon, when the quick eye of
the Sheriff detected the absence of an impor
tant member of the party. " 4 ' ' '
Achyj where's Three-Legs V i . ,
Little Three-Legs was a medium-sized, tan
colored hound," of lull blood, who had been
caught in a bear-trap while on the run-way,
and had been kept there until from sheer star
vation, sh6 knawed offher leg and returned to
her niasier. ' Sho had been Archy 's particular
pet ever since. ' He frequently carried Ler
home in his arms after a long chase. Her
long and beautiful ears, and clean, thin skin
showed tho purity of her blood, while' her cry,
clear and pure as a trumpet, made her an in
valuable assistant to tha other dogs. , Sho
could maintain her position in a short chase
very well, but in a long run, the strain on the
remaining fore-leg was too great. Archy had
fitted a little leather boot to the shortened
limb to prevent injury by hitting it on the
Three-Legs is all safe. I wanted to save
her for the run. Vt'e'll stop at Newoll's lor
her.' . ' . '
In picking np the d ig, we were but too hap
py to pick up Newell himself Apollos Newell,
than whom no worthier man trod the soilof
old Essex. Many a man have I heard praise
the integrity of another by saying : ;
He's as honest as Apollos Newell.'
A brisk i;ide of three miles brought us to
the intersection of the brook with the river.
The horses were taken from the wagon and
tied under a spreading beech,' and an umbrel
la spread over a mysterious-lookiug basket in
tho wagon, toward Vihich.Archy gave ownd
then a most affectionate look: ' Abels leashed
up the dogs, in which he had some difficulty,
as they wero whimpering about in the most ac
tive manner with their noses to the ground, in
search of 'a track,' and started for the head of
the brook. Tl eiun-way was from tho top ol
the ride down the 6tream, crossing it several
times, to its confluence with the - Boquet,
thence down sail river on the west "bank there
of, (as tho lawyers would say,) for about two
hundred rods, then crossing the river ataliltlo
ripple, and then in a direct course to East
. , As it would probably be an Jiour before a
frsh track could be found, the Slierifl and Ar
chy pulled out. tjicir fish-lines, cut an ash-pole
from the brook-side, and tried their skill lor
trout. The former threw Lis line iu the deep
pool where the brook joined the river, and Ar
chy 'sauntered up the : stream. Meanwhile,
Newell sat with his rifle in his lap, listening
for the cry from the; bounds. Trut were not
abundant,' and the Sherifl was about giving up
in despair, when, throwing his hoofc into the
ripple, it floated gently down to the deep pool
at the bottom, and, 'Heavens ! whit a bito !'
The trout was hooked, but . the old fisherman
knew very well it would never do to tug at
him with that line. Having no creel, it was
not an easy matter to give him his run. It
could only be dono by. leading him up and
down until ho tired himself out. A full half
hour wa3 spent in this way, until his trout
ship brought his nose to the surface for relief.
Now he was brought gently to tho shore, the
line fastened by a stone, and using his bid bea
ver for a lading-no, bef had tho proud satis
faction of laying on - tho . bank, a two pound
deep-water trout t '. - ,.
At this moment lie heard ahalloo from New
ell, seized his prize, and started for the camp.
Archy had started before with hia, rifle up to
one of tho crossings on the brook; so-Newell
was left to try his skill at tko point where the
deer should strike the Bouquet; and the Sher
iff took position ' whore the run-way crossed

their being frightened. Ablo is further tip.'
' " "Whosoever it was, it had not, stopped .tbo
deer, for presently the long'b'ound of some an
imal was heard in tha copse above. Some for
ty rods further up from us was a brief opening
in the woods, forming a beautiful little; glade,
with here and there a small pine growing. ' It
was in this wo first caught sight of our game,
as the" run-way was directly through it. . What
a 'magnificent sight! a seven years' old buck,
'in-the prime aad vigor' of his "sirengfa. Not
yet fatigued by the length, of the chase,' wear
ing more the air of surprise than fright, his
antlers laid gently back upon" his neck, his
staudark raised, and all his colors flying; he
bounded on, as if spurning the ground; with
his hoofs, and conscious of untiring- speed.
I shouted ia eestacy. . J" " . .'. r .
Hush !' said Newell,1 'not a word, or he'll
shoot the track.' ";' -; . ' ".; ;
Jle brought his rifie to the cock, and waited
for the buck to clear the woods, the distance
from; where we stood to the river being about
ten rods of grass plat. On he came." Oh! it
seemed a sin to take the life of so noble a crea
ture. Newell raised his rifle to his shoulder,
and, as tha deer gave the last bound from the
bank to the stream, aimed at his neck, and fir
ed. From the sudden turn of tha deer's head,
as ho struck the water, it was evident ho was
hit He gave two Or three short jumps into
the rippla and fell. The Sheriff heard tho re
port, and as he could see from his station that
the deer had fallen, hastened np. : The .buck
lay motionless in the water,.and slowly float
ing down the river, which was about knee
deep. As Newell "was getting advanced in
years, he, being clad in long fishing-boots,, of
fered to go iu and cut the 'animal's throat.
The bullet had struck just at the root of the
horn, on the side of the head, had stopped
there, consequently the deer was only stunn
ed, not killed. L drew his hunting-knife
aud proceeded to cut his throat. . Tho f rst
gash, which let a little blood, revived ' him at
once, and he was on Ids foot in an instant; and
and now commenced enc of he most exciting,
encounters it was. ever my fortune to witness.
It is well known that an old stag at bay H one
the most savage of animals, and as the small
gash made in his throat had severed no main
vessel, the blocd he had lost amounted to no
thing.' lie lowered his head, and made a lunge
at, his enemy. L 's only safety ' was' to
catch hiin by the horn3 and lorce his nose un
der water by his own weight. Bat this could
not last long, as the deer's struggles were pow
erful. He next attempted to hold him by one
horn,and use the knife on the back of his neck.
The result of this experiment was, that.he was
landed about six feet ofF, with, the wind; front
part of his clothing torn from his body, and
his knife lost. The d-jer made another, spring
at him, . with tho intent to put Lis fore lout on
top of him a.s he lay in the wafer, and trample
him. This he evaded by a sudden spring, 'and
again sncceedod ia. grasping him by botli
horns.: Thus they struggled and floundered,!
sometimes one tinder water, and then the oth
er, lor some twenty minutes. v Jleantime the
dogs had run in, and the mastiff- came to the
rescue. Unfortunately tho water wa3 just that
depth in.which man and deer could stand, but,
the dogs could not touch bottom. It was all
Llliey could do to stem: the current, to say no
thing cf fighting. It. was getting to bo a soi
bus matter. One of ths 'prongs of the antler
Lad b-jcu. broken, and Iyft a bLide-like point
as sharp as. a needle On this-the-Sheriff had
seriously torn his hand eaily in tho fight, and
was losing some blood by it: ' Ho shouted to
Newell to fire at the doer, but so sudden' and
rapid were their motions, that the old gentle
man was afraid to shoot, being a9 likely to hit
one as the other. 'As for myself, I was amera
boy, and they had been gradually, gelling into
deeper and swifter water thaal could stand in.
I could do no manner of good, and stood on
the shore,' amid tho' barking dogs, excited and
speechless. Again the deer's nose was forced
under water for a moment, and again with a
mighty effort he raised his antagonist with a
lunge that rolled them together in the stream. 1
L fjlt his strength failing, but ho also
knew his life was at stake. Earlier in thc.batT
tie he h id fought from a feeling of prida, and
to save the Venison, as there, would be :n0
chance of killing it now, if the buck got away.
Now, had lie let go and raad-3 for tho shore,
tho chances were tho deer' would trample him
before he reached the bank,-; At this critical
moment Archibald arrived.'-' -lie had heard
NeweU's gun, and not 'hearing another had
taking it for granf ed the gama; was qliietly
killed, and; strolled, licsurcly, back.. Seeing
the real state of the case at' a glance, he
plunged ic'to the stream, drew his knife, cut
the animal's ham-strings at a blowi and ended
the fight.-1. Both were drawn' ashore, the deer
dead, and L - -perfectly exhausted.' A
draught from a! black bottle, e dug from 'the
d9pths of the m ysterious basket, soon put. all
parties to rights, saving the torn hand and ha-
biliihents of the Sheriff.-' II o was a sorry sight
to see".'; N.ot a single garment was ' left in Its
integrity,.- while tho old broad-brimmed beaver
which' had served him lor years as hat, um
brella, drinking cup, and landing nctas occa
sion required, had been floated ofTand sunk." j
The deer was' now dressed, quartered;: and
divided in the usual manner,' that is to sayi t,ha
carcase was cut iatd"as many .pieces" as thore
were persona inthe -party, (the Antlers and
skin belonging of right to 'the one who first
draws blood,) when one tums his back to the
whole, and to the question, "Who shall "have
this pile V who calls off thq names by chancei
In those daysi this was the unvarying mode of
dividing all manner of game hunted by a par
fy No one ever-thought of objecting ta the
division or tha lot. , . -,- 7 . '; , .- :
It was now high noon. '' The warm sun had
dispelled 'all dampness from' the gra?s, when
wo ?eated 'ourselves under, the old beech to
prepare for dinner. 1 r r ;: ,h : . ;. .'.
,'Boy, bring the basket-! e ; i ,; ':
. , Humph V, said Archy, ! know whose wife
put up that prog.'; , ' . , , -
Yes, indeed,' 'replied 1 , evcr 6lnce
you imposed on my good wife as a beggar,; in
green goggles and a knapsak, and drew on her
sympathies for a good dinner,; and was broom
sticked out of the house to payjbr it.' ; , :
Archy chuckled at the remembrance. Pick
les, Indian bread, salt, a chunk of raw pork,
and potatoes to roast. Good! ; ' -
Ah ! ha !' said Abies, three black quarts !'
'Twas tlro rock lie1 usually split on, tho' our
general failings'might "be said to be primitive.
A circular hole of three feet across, by four
incliS deep, was soon dug in the ground, and
filled with cTean stones from the brook. On
theso ' a rousing fire was kindled, and left to
burn nearly out. ' Meanwhile, Archy had cut a
half-dozen chops from the venison. The Sher
iff had occupied himself with preparing his
two-ponnd trout for a bake. The modus cper
audi I beg to set forth as a rule for" all, gour
mands unlike situation. , After properly cleans
ing it, he, with' a knife, made an incision down
theW'hole length of'the back, nearly as deep as
the back-bone. Into' this was laid a thin slice
of raw pork; .if you can add a squeeze cf the
lemon to the pork, all the better. Tho belly was
stuffed with the soft part of a loaf of rye and
Indian-bread, mixed with say. a gill of Madeira
wine. His troutship .was then carefully and
tightly rolled np in the half of a clean newspa
per, and laid in the embers to bake. The time
necessary to properly do the fish must depend
on its size. I should say for a two-poundar,
forty minutes, and when properly done, he is
a morsel for an epicure. Talk of your tut-but a
la ere me, it's a mere pop and lolly-pop to the
rich fragrance, the delicato flavor of a -well-baked
deep-water trout. ' ' '
. . The. 'fish devoured first, as was proper then-j
came the chops. , Oh ! ye well-fed city alder
man, who think ye sit down to your groaning
boards and eat venison, I would one of tho best
cf you could have partaken of those chops !
Venison as was venison' were they, cut from
a deer that had been browsing in his native
wo 0 i s but two hours before ; none of your
black, disgusting stuff that comes down from
the country in February, coursed iX til his
blood is heated and unwholesome before he is
killed, and then frozen and thawed and frozen
again, until 110 trace of juiciness, or fi'orine, or
OfetuUon is leftj but rich in flavor, tende be
cause well fed and fat, and luscious with the
rich juices with which nature seasoned it,
broiled 6a the glowing hickory coals, and eat
en yet smoking with the bubbling heats of ita
own juices. " A single glass of wine to each,
and then for t'ie dessert.' "What; a dessert in
the wood3 ! Yes, indeed, and such a dessert !
When Archy went up. tho brook ; trouting in
tho morning, he returned, to all appearances,
an unlucky fisheramn. Now, however, he step
ped up the stream a "few rods, aiid' returned
with a dripping basket, in which were about
twenty" littld troutlings, of from'thrcd to three!
and a; half inches iu length which ho had man
aged to kccp'alive, by taking them' carefully
from thofhook, and keeq)ing the basket under
water. - To kill these, dip them ia Indian rueal,
and lay them in a. frying-pan over the coals,
was but a moment's work. "Was it not worthy

. Tho day's hunt, the day's feast wero now
ended, and, recliuiug under, the- . spreading

A lot of powder, lead und other ammunition

when the two ladies in questicr, Mrs, G TV.
Brown, and MrSi S. N. YTood, drove ont with
a buggy alone, secured the needed ammuni
tion beneath their clothes, and drove in again.
The Missourians stopped their buggy once or
twice, but had the galantry to lot. them passt
without search. This was certainly a remark
able piece of femala intrepidity j but ia my
mind, every .thing is thrown ia the shade by
tho conduct of the heroic and devoted sentries
of Lawrence. For a full week they were ex
posed to nocturnal excursions, and were fired
upon every night. Gen. llobiason, .knowing
that theso were merely attempts to jret a plau
sible ground for quarrel, issued orders that the
sentries shp'd cot return the fire, until iu immi

Tho new dogma of the 'Immaculate Con
ception" iu the. Com ish Church, is creating,
quite a discussion among the faithful in France.

Montanc portion of the Catholics, and Le Steele

portion of the Church. It is suppos
