The Lion and the Snapping Turtle
A REETCH Or A PIIIMITIVB MENAGERIE,
The menagerie was in town. A rare
occurrence was an exhibition of the
wild beasts, lions, tigers, polar bears
and icheumons, in Baltimore, at the
early days of which we are writing, yet
they crone occasionally, and this time
were visited by old Nat Wheatley, a
jolly weather-beaten boat-man, well
known in Baltimore as an inveterate
joker, who never let any one get to the
windward of him. He was furthermore
a stutterer of the first class.
Nat visited the menagerie. As he en
tered, the showman was stirring up the
monkey, and tormenting the lion, giv
ing elaborate descriptions of the various
propensities and nnural peculiarities of
each and all.
" This, ladies and gentlemen, this, I
say is the Afrikin Lion. A noble beast
he is, ladies and gentlemen, is called
the King of the Forest, I have often
heard that he makes nothing of devour
ing young creatures; of every descrip
tion, when at home in the woods. Cer
ting it is, that no other beast can whip
"111. m-mister" interrupted Wheatley
d-do y-you say he ea-ant be w-whi
I duz," said the man of lions and
tigers. _ _ _
"What w-will you b-b-bet 1 c-cant
fetch a critter what'll whip him 1"
" I ain't a bettin' man at all. But I
don't object to taking a small bet to that
"I'll b-bet I can fetch something, that
will whip him. What s-say you to ah.
hundred d-d-dollars 1"
Now there were several merchants in
the crowd who knew Wheatley well,
and were fully convinced that if the bet
was made, he was sure of winning. So
he had no difficulty in finding "back
ers," one of whom told him he would
give him ten gallons of rum if he won.
The menagerie man glanced at his lion.
There lie crouched in his cage, his shag
gy mane bristling, and his tail sweeping,
the picture of grandeur and majesty.—
The bribe was tainpting and he felt as-

jection to old Hercules, taking a bout
with any cretur you may fetch."
" V-v-very w-well," said Nat, " it's a
The money was planked up, and the
next night was designated for the terri
ble conflict. The news was spread over
Baltimore, and at an early hour the
boxes of the spacious theatre were filled
--the pit being cleared for the affray.
Expectation was on tip toe, and it was
with great impatience that the crowd
awaited the arrival of Wheatley. He
at length entered, bearing a large bag
or sack on his shoulders, which, as he
let it fall on the floor, was observed to
contain some remarkably hard and
heavy substance. The keeper looked on
a Where's your animal 1" he enqui
" Th-th-there," said Nat, pointing
with his finger at the bag.
" Well, what is it 1" asked the man
with increasing astonishment.
" Th-th-that, I-I-ladies and gentlemen,
said Nat, gesticulating like the show
man, is a wh-wh-whimbamper!"
"A whimhatnper V' echoed the keep
er. "That's certainly a new feature in
zoology and anatomy . A whimbamper!
well let him out, and clear the ring, or
old Hercules will make a mouthful of
both of you."
The keeper was excited. According.
Jy Nat raised the bag, holding the aper
ture downwards and out rolled a huge
snapping turtle, while the cheers and
laughter of the audience made the arches
" There he is !" snid Wheatley, as he.
tilted the " whimhamper" over with
both hands, and set him on his legs.—
The snapper seemed unconscious of his
Wheatley was about leaving the ring,
when the keeper swore that his lion
should not disgrace himself by fighting
such a pitiable foe.
6 , Very well," said Nat, if y-y-yo
you ch-choose to give me the hundred
!!Butit is unfair !" cried the showman.
The audience interposed and heisted
upon the fight. There was no escape,
and the showman reluctantly released
the lion, making himself secure on the
top of the cage.
The majestic beast moved slowly
around the ring, snuffing and lashing,
while every person held his breath in
suspense. Lions are beasts, and this
one was not long in discovering the tur
tle which lay on the floor, a huge inan
imate mass. The lion soon brought his
nose in close proximity to it, which the
turtle not liking, popped out his head
and rolled its eyes,while a sort of wheeze
issued forth from his savagerous mouth.
The lion jumped back, turned and made
a spring at the turtle, which was now
fully prepared for his reception. As the
lion landed on him, the turtle fastened
his terrific jaws on the liow's nostrils,
rendering him powerless to do harm ;
yet with activity of limb he bounded
around the circle, growled, roared, and
lashed himself, but the snapper hung on,
seeming to enjoy the ride vastly.
"G-go it whimbamper!" cried Wheat
ly from the boxes.
The scene was rich. The showman
was no less enraged than the lion.—
Drawing a pistol, he threatened Nat
that if he did not take his turtle off he
would shoot him.
Ta-take him off yourself !" shouted
Nat in reply.
At this critical moment, by dint of
loosing a portion of his nose, the lion
shook his dangerous foe from him, and
clearing the space between himself and
the cage with a bound, he slunk quietly
in, to chew the cud of his defeat and
It was a fair fight, all declaring that
the "whimbamper" was the victor. The
next morning he carried his turtle to
market and sold him. So this valiant
champion, after conquering the king of
beasts, served to make a dinner for Bal

This medicine is an excellent lonic. It im

only a pleaeu: e, but a duty, to make known to
you and to the public, (if you desire it.) the cur- I
prising effects of the ^ Oxygenated Bitters." in
relieving me from that roost discouraging disor
der, Dyspepsia. I have been afflictere for about,
seventeen yearn with the usual aiteillist symp
toms, viz: conniption of the bowel., headache,
pain in the cheat, flatulence acidity of the nom
ach, and severe nausea ; and fur montha at a time
not the least particle of moisture would appear
on the surface of the cheat or limbs, and most
of the time I was extremely bilious. I have used
various remedies, have been strict in my diet,
have been dosed with calomel and emetics day
after day by physician., but all to no gezd pur
pose. Hearing of the wonderful effects of the
"Oxygenated Bitters," in the cure of Dyspepsia,
I procured some as n last resort , have used four
bottles of the medici e, and find the bad symp
toms all removed, and myself once more in the
enjoyment of health. None but the Dyspeptic
milliner, who hoe felt a I the horrors of the dia.
ease, can at all appreciate the value of the medi
cine. 1 moat sincerely hope that all will make
trial of the medicine, end with me be able t o re •

Lady Cured of Neuralgia.
From Rev. THOal.dS KIDDER, of
Wrixtraoll, Vt., Aug.S,lB4B.
Deem Sr u:—lt gives me great pleasure to in
form you that the ‘• Oxygenated Bittern," with
which you furnished my wife, hae wrought a
cure in her ellen. About two years since, my
wife wart violently attacked with neuralgia in
the face, through the chest, in the wrists and
ankles. So violent was the disease, added to a
general derangement of the female ey stem, that
her strength was completely prostrated, her flesh
wasted, and she rendered miserable indeed. I
feel grateful for the restoration of her health, and
in duty bound to give pallidity to the above
facts, that others similarly afflicted may know
where to neck for cure. Truly your friend,
From Hon. .;11YRON LAWRENCE,
" For some twenty years I had suffered severe
ly from 'tumoral Asthma. I was compelled to
sit up one-third of the night, and the rest of the
time my sleep was interrupted by violent fits of
coughing and great chino Ity of breathing. In
all my attendance upon our courts I never went
to bed in Northampton in twenty yeses but twire,
end then was compelled to get op. Now I lir
in bed without diffieulty, and sleep soundly. I
look the " Oxygenated Bitters," according to
directions. The violent symptoms immediately
ahe ed , and perseverance in the see of tl a rem
edy has removed all its trouble... consequen
ces. Flies value of such a remedy is incalculable.
and I hope its virtues may be widely diffused and
its beneficent agency extensively employed."
