Tho last of a Noble_ LC rd
of a Monster Moose whia, ',ha* 'Llipamed
'the' country for over Twenty. .Yeare.
In the year 1847,thero was a famous
herd of moose living' in the woods
aroundthe head or L'Anseßay, which,
oven-then,-were noted • for their great
beauty and exceeding fleetness of
foot. This latter fact was well known
\and attested by many ambitious hunt
ers who sought' to add a moose to the
list of -their trophies. How many days
and `nights, and how many scores of
irides Avere - tramped,through the'woOda,
all in vain, it is' useless to recount. 4•-•
But finally the sday of triamph and
slaughter came; the unfortunate 'herd
-,were entrapped, and all killed except
- - -one old leader. stag, who - broke away
_and by dint of great strength and en
durance eluded his itursuers. For a
year or ; two nothing was seen or heard
of hiM; Wit:finally there crone rumors
of - a gigantic moose roaming 'in the
woods around the head of Torch Lake.
Once or 'twice a year; for several years,
some Indian 'or adventurous 'hunter
would meet him, but the old fellow
would be crashing through the, bushes
away out of sight before the hunter
would recover from his surprise. Once
a determined party hunted for him
three days from ,the head of Torch
Lake, 'which appears'te have been his
favorite stamping ground, westward
toward Lake Superior, then back again
and oir to the eastward, until they fi
nally gave up the chase. Another time
• he came out in Beesley's clearing on
Torbli„Lake, but he quickly'disappeared
upon - seentingTa human' being: This
winter some Indian - appeared deter
mined to catch him, and finding his
'track gave him several liVely chases,
but - anti! a week .ago he always escaped.
Then a half-breed; .Teter Marksman,
got after• him, and_ there being a thick
crust on the snow, the man could move
aboht easily,wlrile the sharp hoofs of
the-yeteran moose broke through every
lean'. Peter finally overtook him, sev
eral miles north vest of the .Calumet
mine, and .-quieldly closed his career
with a rifle ball. He - skinned him, cut
up the flesh, brouOt it• tQ town; and
found a 'ready sale for most
-of it at fifty
cents a pound, realizing over three hun
dred dollars. The head was cut off and
brought in, and has been exhibited to
mast of our people at Peter l3ellehym
er's, during the past'few 'days. It now
belongs to Harry Beesly, C. E.,' who
will prepare - it for preservation in the
rooms of the Historical _Satiety. , The
head alone gives token that the:entire,
animal must have been of such mon
strsus. size as to recall the days of 'the
ieh thy-resaurns ' megatherium, ptero
dactyl, etc., whin monsters occupied
both the land and the water: Beside
this Weed those of air ox or horse looks
small and ,insignificant. It measured
thirty-three inches from the tip of the
nose to the crown of the head between
tile antlers. The nose is of decided
" Roman" style, and measured twenty
•eight inches around. The nostrils, dis
tended, each measured four inchea in
diameter, and a large hand could
pushed up into them over a foot The
frCnt of the under jaw has eight! large
cutting teeth, which bite against a
tough, semi-horny pad in the tipper
jaw, which has no cutting teeth At
the time he was killed, lie wai I busy
stripping bark from a small, suit sap
piing. The head, cut elf entirely from
the peck, and minus the tongue, weighs
seventy-eight pounds. It is a great
pity the entire animal could not have
been preserved. Unfortunately it was
killed at the season of the year when
the head is shorn'of,its greatest beauty,
the enormous branching antle - rs. The
new one just rising out of the. head,
still-encased in the skin, only making
protuberances of four or five inches.—

TEI r R A TWA In AT BODINE VI LIM.
terrible 'ailitkr occurred at Bodine
-vine, Wednesday. We have_been able
to glean the following particulars from
a correspondent who sendS a hasty note.
It seems that two men named John
Fields and George Mathews, sold, on
Tuesday, a Jot of railroad ties to the
agent of the Northern Central Railroad.
By agreement, the proceeds were to be
divided. The paj of the whole was
'given to Mathews and he sent his wife .
to Field's with his share. Not being
satisfied with the amount Fields was
very abusive to Mrs. M., who returned
and informed her husband, advising
him to gO and settle with him.- For
that 'purpose Mr. M. sought Fields, and
high words ensued when the latter
seized an axe and struck Mathews over
the .head inflicting a severe and it is
thought a fatal wound. 'ThiS was on
On Wednesday forenoon Constable
Charles Gray armed with a warrant,
went to arrest Fields; and found .him
ploughing. He asked to be allowed to
go into the house :1,1)10111mq, and the
;constable granted his request, when
"the prisoner returned with an , axe and
made an attack on the ollieer, indicting
a very severe wound on him, after
which he fled to the woods and escaped.
At the last accounts the woods were
being searched for the offender.— Wil

A LIVELY PLACE.—Phelps Mills has
assumed its accustomed condition of
activity. The saw m Ills are in operation
and.the way they use up saw logs is as
tonishing, or would be to one not famil
iar with the business. A log is drawn
from' the pond and in less time than we
can write it, is transformed into 'lum
ber of various kinds. On' the steam
mill nothing appears to ho wasted.-- 1
The slabs and damaged stuff are cut up
into plastering lath paling 4, - e. and - we
, expect to find them ere long cutting up
!, what remains into matches and shoe
pegs. . .
But the saw mills ae not the only
things worthy of. note. The place
boasts one of the - best flouring mills
in the - country. The celebrated Phelps

Whether it s the perfection of the ma
chinery or -he skill of the miller, or

abld to dee e, but certain it is that our

more than any . other. It illustrates the
advantage of having a good reputation.

Sprague's speech remind i lsome one of
a little story : A certain queer genius,
whose prominent specialty was an
aversion to water, happened home late
one night, - with that peculiar, fiery sen
,sation aboit his tongue and tonsils
which gentlemen who rejoice in Clubs
will remember as a part of his experi
ence. His wife had left standing upon
a bureau a tumbler, in which—trotsome

also recounts his sufferings oh account
of having his . really 5 Spicy corrcSpon

that's pretty good.
In noticing the appointment of Mr.
Adams Deputy Collecior of 'this coun

the retiring officer, had discharged his
duty with fidelity. He made a courte

it gives us pleasure to testify to the fact.
Differing widely in politics with Mr.
Hunt, as we do, that fact cannot pre
vent a just commendation of the officer,
and a full appreciation of the genial,
gentlemanly man.' We don't pity him,

That was the utterance.

For there is a more valuable consid
eration than money, luxury, false posi- •
Mon, or good-fellowship. Those who
can conceive of no higher wages than
these are unbelievers in God. and im
mortality. If life ended where it ap
parently begins—on this agglomeration
of land and water, we can conceive of
that 'state of mind which beholds noth
ing better for a man than that he should
eat, driNr., and be merry, and die-like
a dog.' hut life no more ends here than
it here begins. Proceeding from the in
exhaustible Fount of Life, it follows
the Law and returns to the hand which
gave. Returns, and not a new life, but
the same entitity which but now ani
mated the clay. Returns, entering up
on its second stage with all the disabil
ities of its first; with all the crooked
tendencies it fostered here . ; _with all its
little and mean views, if - such' it cher

such it indulged ; and, on the - other
hand, with its better (panties enlarged
and strengthened, if .it lived up to its
highest conception - of human duty.
So, we affirm, it pays-to do right. So,
likewise, we' declare that it never pays
to do wrong. So, again, -wo say that
no wrong can be legalized by legislatuie
or whitewashed by a corrupt and
Heaven-defying Judiciary. The Su
preme Court. of the United States tried
that a dozen years ago, and failed. Ev
ery legislature in the Republic has tried
its hand at legalizing, wrong, and still

Good people, the work of demoraliz
ing society does not pays 'ether here,
or hereafter. In so much as you see
innate or acquired goodness lessened,
in just so much you behold the defenc-.
es of law and order weakened. The
man who aims to weaken hurnan integ
rity strikes a murderous blow at his
own life. The legislator, who advocates
a wrong Invites the consequences of
that wrong to visit him in the seclusion
of his holm ) and in the walks of busi
ness. The citizen Who defends outrage,
or winks at it, bids for his own delitruc

The most contemptible of all coward
ice is moral cowardice. - The man who
asks—" will it be popular to do this, or
advocate that," before asking his eon
science—' is it right 2 1 I —is an arrant
moral coward, and a thousand degrees
more despicable than the man who
succumbs to momentary terror and flies
from the battle-field. In the days of
the war we read much of the coward

people sneered and laughed. But that

kuch is the effect produced by a lack
of moral stamina--infinitely more dan
gerous to good order and progress' than
a hundred things upon which churches
and their kindred associations have set•
the seal of disapprobation. The mint
is tithed with scrupulous exactness; but
in the weightier matters of judgment
and law the devil has control of the
field. A man may not smile on Sun
day; but he nay wrong man and dis
honor God every other day in the week,
if he only puts on a grave face-upon
Sunday, with comparative impunity.
We confess that these glaring ineOn
sistences create an almost uncontrolla
ble disgust for the husks flung to the
starving souls around us. Others may
eat of them ; we will not. Others may
swallow a few forms and be satisfied.
We prefer a trifling admixture of flour
with the bran, even if the flour has
never been formally consecrated by the
hands of man. •
We deny what the Mossburg corres
pondent of the Elmira Advertiser, af
firms, that the Bradford papers have
backed 'the AGITATOR down on the
butter and cheese issue. We rested for
further advices from Tioga farmers,
meanwhile flinging a female porker
and her happy family of fifty-three pigs
into the arena, to appease the horrible
appetite of our Bradford cotemporaries
for big stories. Hooker, of the Gazette,
who had been very contemptuous in
his remarks, lapsed into - Silence, and
the Reporter man, Goodrich, became
disgusted with Bradford County pork
ers, and flung himself recklessly away
upon the Surveyership of the Customs
in Philadelphia. We assure the Moss
'burg correspondent that we are not
backed down ; .but having "seen" all
the butter and a. eese the Bradford meri
produced, and _one them 53 pigs better,

to the guild. I f course we only include

If so,. we commend the great papers to
the example of the little ones, and as
sure the managers that they can find
plenty of men, as able as the hacks who
write by the column for them, who
never lack themes, and whose inspira
tion does not proceed from the bottle.
The Wellsbor i o correspondent of the
Elmira Advertiser alluding to our re
marks upon the subject of marriage and
divorce, Characterizes the doctrines
therein embodied as somewhat true,
but hot orthodox. TEE AGITATOR prides
itself on its orthodoxy—perhaps not in
the technical and abused sense of that
word—but in its most • catholic sense.
We hold that marriage
,(is a civil con
tract, -and nothing more; so far as courts
are concerned. It may be more than
this, and ought always to be'; but the
law inever recognizes " affinities " as
some people name the conjugal loves.
It provides for the public mating of
men and women, and sometimes forces
the parties to nominally abide by the
contract terms. It cannot make either
party true to the relation, nor can it
force either party to respect and love
the other. When respect and affection
go out of a household It is positive sin
to force the parties to live as husband
and wife. Can it be that the Advertiser
correspondent is an old bachelor?
We last week statedthat three months
of Grant as President made us ask for
more of him in that position. We also
said that the probable decrease of the
public debt for the month of May
would be about $7,000,000, and for the
first quarter of prant's first year . , some
thing over $10,00,000. The statement
of Secretary Bontwell Just issued makes
the decrease of he debt in May M
-884,777,97, and the decrease since March
1, is $20,050,046,89. We failed to allow
enough for Grant's economy by about
The total debt is now $2,605,412,013,12.
Of this but $2,000,000,000 bears interest.
If the rate of reduction can be main
tained for four years, the debt on the 4th
of March 1873 will not be greatly over
a billion. The actual receipts into the
Treasury for the first quarter of the cur
rent year are in excess of Abe estimates.
This speaks volumes for the fidelity of
the new collecting agents.
