In the leng, Winters of Russia,: when Abe
giant of food has rendered the wolves ferocious,
•it is an exciting and skillful piece of business
to hunt them.
• Three or • four, hunters, armed with,double
barrelled iifiee, place themselves on the Trota,
a sort of earriage,A r awn by three horses, and
receiving its name, net from its forth, but from
the manner, it which the animals are driven
the middle one being a' trotter, and,the one on ,
each side always. goiing on a gallop, the whole
of them harnessed,abreast. • , •
The middle'horse trots with his bead very
low, and , is called the ecSnoiv-tater,". while
the others gallop with elevetedironts, and are
called the "Furies," because they are always
leaping 'and plunging and work certif.' , so much
that the advtincing cquippage presents the 'ap
iiarauce of an open. fan... , . •
4 :sure coaChman, if:any coach Man is sure,
is always chosen to drive the4k
Tl. rs=d these
,hunting excursions. : . . .
Oehind the Carriage. is attached a young kid,
by ti rope or chain some ten or twelve:feet in
length, and. it is thtis CoOducted carefully; into
the forest 'Where it is 'intended - to commence
the hunt, , The kid twit:ten put out of the eer:-
riage, and the driver Whips' up his' horses,
which hound awey, at full speed,. the 'middle'
one trotting and the other two galloping:
- The young kid. net being' used to this sort of
treatment, sets up the amid plaintive and ear
nest lemantations at his sad fate.. At first
cry a wolf thrust's . ' his nose out Of .the bushes
and starts in pursuit ef the kiih. then -three
'wolves, then ten wolves, Coon fifty of. - the t - e
rocious animals are hoWling in pursuit.
They. dispute with each other 'for the pos
session of , the kid, fightirig to see which will
get the nearest; :.orici'..dashing at . him with ,a
stroke of the,elavvs, the' other with a snap of
the teeth, till the poor victim, from lementaL
tiens, passes to. Cries of despair which 'arouse
more of 'the brutes, from the : distant depths of
the forest. All the wolves vrithin the circum
ference of .'a league, hasteo to the banquet, and
the 'article is ~soon 'pursued by a .countless
trop ‘. It is theft a . very agreeable - thing to
haven good driVer. s
.... . , , .
The horses...rho have an instinctive horror
of the Wolves, .become madly excited, and
.clash onward at a fearful rate. * •The trotter
would like to gallop, and the :gallopers, would
like to take the' bits in their teeth.. - .'
Away.th ey go! and the huntere hive nothing
i r do but to. load and fire at • random, it being
unnecessary to take . aim. The kid cries, - the
hories• whinny, the wolves howl, and the rifles
loars.ilie whole forming a concert 'that might
make. Mephistophiles jealous. .t
. ijupage, hor
ses, kid, troops of wolves, bunters—all sin a
Whirlwind, driving furiously" over the know,
and making it fly in every direction, like a
storm, cloud glistening in the alx. . •
While the driver remains master the' hor
ses, however excited they may be, all goes
well. But if a rein breaks or escapes from his
grasp 7 a trace.gives way, or • the Actroka" is
upset--all is sad ! The next daY,theiley . after,
a week or ten days later somebOdy, Will find
the, ruins of .a carriage, the barrels of the rifles,
carcasses of the horeei, and ,the large bones of
the hunters - and driier.
It was during Alexander Diana's' first winter
in Russia that he went wolf bugling with
Prince Garousky and another friend-the affair,
coming very near 'being tbe last hunt ori:of
Alarge sledge-was prepared•and :attached to
three horses, who. Were cenfided to a 'driver
born in 04 vicinity,• . and full.,of ' experience. _
Dumas •placed 'himself. face to the -
• rear, the
Prince on one side and, hie friend en .the other.
Thus they arrived at the steppe, which.is noth
ing more or lesellon an immense desert eov.
ered With.now—the time being night the
moon shining brightly over the scene; its rays
reflected on the snow almost equalling 'the

When their number was .-inereaseilto about
twenty, they Were near enefigh to the:sledge
for the work of death .te-cOrOmisdee.'A-single
report and a wolf fell, soinewhut dieturbing the.
equanimityof th e :survivors; Many of Who' ..
fell o ff from the 'chase; but it must be remark=
ed that the , greater part of theM, notwithstand
ing the proverb . ; that "wolf will not'eat wolf,"
threw themselves upon , their unfortunate rela
tiVe and.tore hino to pieces. • . . • •
Those backsliders, however were soon le..
placed. Howlingii responded ,to howlinge on
all sides;and sharp - noses were stickineout
from behind every buSh while gleatifing eyes
were as thick helew the horizcM; as ' the stets
were aboVe if not half 'so plea Sent. Enough
of 'them were constantly w i thin .reach of the
rifles, and the hunters •kept firing With allPos
Bible djspatch.. • • •
But although every.. shot told, the 'troop of
wolves instead of diminishing, continued to in
crease. Theh progress was So rapid that they
sunned to fly over the snow, so light that-they
did not create the slightest noise L-their adven
,eing waie, like a silent tide, - iraving nearer to
the sledge, and never for a moment retreating,
as rapidly as the-huntera loaded
,and fired, ,
' They,formed around the prince immense
demi-eircle, the two . . corners of which com
menced to fiend around the sledge, as fir in
fiont as the heads 'of the horses, while,. their
,number increased with such •rapidity, that it
seemed,as if theyhad arisen from the:earth,-
There was semethirig fantastical too, 'in
their appearance, and.it-was almost impossi-
I ble (or DumaS and his friends to realize ' the
ptesence.of two' or three.thoosand welvas in a
desert plain where -you would not meet •niore
than one or two

"Enough 'of itt",crted the prinee, at lest, as .
hellrits the kid into the.sladge, cries

1 ., 1 31e can't say that we are 'wolf-hnnting,"
said Dumas, with an attempt to • smile," ',but
rather that the sioli , es are hun . loing'us?". The
entire party . still kept up the fire, but the arn r
urdtion was already more than half ;gone.
Perhaps there were two hundred charges yet
remaining in their pouches, , but the were stir=
rounded by at least two thousand wolies. -
The' two cdrners of the , detni-eircles ad
vanced more and more,'and three toned 'to close
in, making a•.circle of which'tlie , itntere, the

" — g(What is your advice!" • •
