from the National Intelligencer.
Of the many singular characters which
we hrtve met with in our various travels,
we remember none with more pleasure,
and even wonu'er, than the hero of this
chap'.tr. Io company with three friends,
we were upon a fishing cruise along the
northern shore of the river Si. Lswrence,
above the Saguenay, and having on a
certain .fiernoon ulcered our little craft
into a cove at the mouth, of a brook, for
the purpose of obtaining fresh wa'er, we
ere surprised to find ourselves in tbe
immediate neighborhood of a rude but
comfortable log cabin. Curiosity led us to
visit the cabin, and introduce ourselves
to Ihe proprietor. We did so, and were
not only warmly welcomed, but were
mvhed to tarry until the next day and
l-sd we not accepte'J the invitation, the
l.iliowing particulars would not now be
made known to the public.
Tbe person under consideration was a
frenchman, a native ol Quebec. He was
above the medium height, about forty
y.r of age ,pracefu ; hi, rnanur-rs.aclive
m mind and body, and altogether jut the
character to rivet tbe attention of the most
swial observer. He wa wholly ignorant
r,ftlie world, having never been out of his
"live city, excepting when he took up his
bode in this out of the way corner of the
rountry, where, at the lima we met with
h,m, lie had been secluded for nearly twen
y years. He bad a wife (but ao children,)
bo was as much like himself in appear
ance and character as nature could well
ilow her to be. He was totally illiterate,
y possessed an atiachm otto the un
ritien science of botany which was truly
remarkable. His cabin find only two low
er rooms and tine genet, an J yet the best
or the three was exclusively appropriated to
a collection of plants, gathered from the
neighboring hills and mountains.and num
bering several hundred varieties, together
with large moose horns,furt,and other for
est curiosities. He knew not the gen.
eric name of a single specimen, and yet he
would expatiate upon their beauty in the
most interesting manner, showing that be
loved them with intense affection. To the
huuiing and cultivation of plants he told us
he was in the habit of devoting more than
half hi time, whereupon we asked him
from whdl source he obtained his living.
He informed us that having inherited the
large tract of land upon which he resided,
he had come here for the purpose of get
ling a living out of that. On casting our
eyes about.and finding nothing for them to
rest upon but mountains of solid rock.
where even pine trees hardly had the cou
rage to Crow, wv iho't his reply somewhi
mysterious. He smiled at our perplexity,
anil then told us that he had two or three
profitable salmon fishing grounds, within a
mileo! his house, which were rented out to
Quebec fishermen, and yielded him all the
necessaries of li(e,and that he obtained hia
resh meats with hia own hands liotn the
Had we been inclined to doubt any of
the assertions of our friend in regard to hia
good living, all such doubts would have
most assuredly dispelled by what we wit
nessed and enjoyed before closing our eves
on the night in question. Having taken us
to the fishing ground lying nearest to his
cabin, for the purpose of letting us see ho
the salmon were taken in the circular set
nets, (into which they swam on their way
up stream when the tide was low.) he
icked out a splendid twenty pound fish and
piloted us back again to his dwelling,
He then excused himself from further
wailing upon us, and begging us to amuse
ourselves by examining his plants, or do-
ng anything else we pleased, be informed
us that he must assist his wife io preparing
our supper. We bowed our most willing
eut, an - it ua sm near near his
veiling we ascended a neighboring knoll
for the purpose of enjoying the extensive
project which presented itself to view.
W e were looking towards the South,
an(1 ,ha, f ,h. . s,

Lawrence where it is without an island,
and its shores are twenty five miles apart.
The retinue of clouds around tbe setting
sun were brilliant to a marvellous degree,
and were distinctly miriored on the tranquil
bosom of the superb river. In the distance
we could barely discover the southern shore
forming a long narrow line of purple; about
a dozen miles to Ihe eastward one solitary
ship lay floating at the mercy of the tide,
and in the foreground was the cabin of
our entertainer, partly hidden from our
vie by a few stunted trees, and apparently
hemmed in by inaccessible mountains,
while before tbe cabin lay extended some
half-dozen immense mongrel dogs, which
were the only living creatures, besides
ourselves, tending to animate the lonely
scene. Silently communing with our own
hearts, we watched with peculiar interest
the coming forth, one alter another, of the
beautiful stars, and we could not but think
ol our distant homes, and of the lies which
bound ui to the absent and loved. One
moment more, and we heard a loud hillo,
which came from the lungs of our Canadi
an friend, who informed us that supper was
ready, whereupon we descended to tbe ca
bin at a puce bordering uwnn a ruo.
And such a supper ! Our host presided,
and while two of his guests were seated on
either side, the hosiess occupied the oppo
site end of the table from her husband.
She could not speak a word of Englith,and
ol'course uttered all her apologies in French;
and though the husbnnd pretended to talk
E'igliah, we begged him to remember that
hw guests all understood French, and tbat
he had belter converse as nature dictated.
No objections were made, end we proceed
ed to business. The table wa literally
loaded ; and whilst ihe matron poured out
a capital cup of cofior,the host overwhelmed
the plates of bis guest with various kinds
of meat.most of which were fried or broiled
almost to crisp. We gave vent to oar cu
riosity by inquiring the names ofthe dish
es we were eating. Frcm this sTiomenl.un-
til the truly delicious feast was ended, the
talking wa all performed by the Canadian
botanist, and the substance of hit remarks
may be stated as follows
"That meat in the blue platter, gentle
men, wa cot from the hind quarters of the
biggest black bear evei teen among the
mjuntaiss. He weighed over four bupd-
red pounds, and was as savage as he was
fat and big. I was climbing along the edg
of a hill, about a week ago.'or the purpose
ot securing a small yellow flower thnt
had discovered hanging from a rock, when
the bear io question came running out of
the mouth of his den,and,aluiing me with
a long scratch on the back, I gave him a
stab in the belly.and tumbled myself down
the offset in the most hasty manner imagi
nable. I always lake my gun with me
when I go into the wuods.and when I m
ched tire bottom of the hill 1 looked out for
the bear, and, discovering him on a stump
aome twenty yards off, I gave him a shot
and he made at me, with the fires of re
venge and rage in his eye. I climbed up
a small tree, and while the rascal made an
unsuccessful attempt to follow me, I reload
ed my gun and sent another charge direct
ly into his moulh, which gave him a bad
cough, and in a short time he staggered a
few paces from the tree and fell to the
ground quite dead. 1 then went back to
the cliff to secure my yellow flower, and
during that afternoon, by the aid of my po-
D)'f dragged the bear to my cabin.
"Jo that dish, with a piece broken from
the edge, gentlemen, you have a mixture of
moose tongue,moose tip and moose brain.
I spent nearly a month moose hunting, l gt
winter, in company with a couple of Indi
ans, and though Ihe snow was deep, the
crust hard, our snow-shoes in good order,
our dogs brave and strong, and moose were
numerous, we only killed about sixteen. I
only brought home the heads, (while the
Indians were satisfied with the skins and
haunches.) but I was more than paid for
all my trouble, in the way of hard travel
ing and cold sleeping, for in one of the
moose-yards tbat we visited I fouod a spe
cies of pine which I had never seen before.
It was very soft, and I think the book
men of England would give a good deal of
money if they could have it in their great
"As to that meal in the while dish, which
all seem to relish, I think you will be sur.
prised to learn that it ia nothing but tra
cer's tail. To my taste it m tha swee'est
meat in the world, and I am only sorry
that this valuable animal is becoming so
very scarce in tbia section of the country
My present stock of beaver's tail came from
the shore of Hudson's Bay, end though I
bought it of an Indian, I had to pay as
much for the tails as the fur companies
paid him for the skins of hi animils. I
never trapped for beaver myself.but I have
for otter, and often have great sport in kil
ling seals, which are very abundant io the
St. Lawrence, and afford to, Ibe Indians
pretty good lood during tbe hard winter.
The only ihing I have against the beaver
is.thathebas a fashion, lam told, of cutting
down for his house auch beautiful tree
the mulberry, birch, willow and poplar, be
fore they are halt' grown.
"As to the salmon upon which you have
bee u feasting.gentlemen,yoj know as much
about tbat particular individual as I do,
since you saw him while yet in his native
element. The men who hire my fishing
ground pay me ao much for every fUli
they take.and sell them at a great profit in
Quebec and even in Montreal. From the
fisheries on this shore are the people of
Canada exclusively supported with Ihe
salmon, and when we have a good season
our merchants manage to tend over to the
United States, in a smoked condition, a
good many thousand. As to taking them
with those pretty little flies,which youen-
tlemen.alway carry in our pocket-books,
I never could understand how you can
manage to deceive to seusiWe a ti n
as the salmon. Of one thing I am
certain : if you expect to take any of Ihe
salmon ol this region with those little hooks
and hues, you are much mistaken. You
will have to go down to the Saguenay,
where I am told the fish do not know any
better then to be deceived by your cunning
arts, out, if I was ever to follow nsntng
as you d9, it seems to me that instead of
red, yellow, and blue feathers, I should co
ver my hooks with the bright berries and
buds which you may find upon some trees
even duiing tbe fishing season.''
This last remark of our host convinced
us that he waa indeed possessed with a ru
ling passion, and we of course gratified
ourselvea by humoring htm to the length
of our patience. lie not only moaopolned
the conversation during supper, but he did
most of the talking until bed time. We
spent the aight under hia roof, sleeping up
on bear skins, apread en the floor : and.
after an early breakfast, we bade him
adieu, and pursued our course down the
St. Lawrence. '

How is it, Ladies?
Equality without,exctusivenes within-
such seem to bs the contracts of American
life. The professional man may be on the
very best of terms with the blacksmith, bit
ten chances lo one if the daughters of the
professional man know the blacksmith's
daughters, or if they would acknowledge
it if they did. In-door life in America is
fenced around by as many lines as social
life in Europe. There is not a community
there, any more thin here, but has its fash'
ionable quarter and its fashionable circle
This may be all very natural, but it is Dot
in conformity with the general aspect of
their national social life, thai they carry
with them into these coteries all theexclus

a feature in the social fabric of the old
orld. In a widely extended country, like
the transatlantic republic, and a widely
scattered community, like that which peo
ples it, is to be expected that them feelings
would manifest themselves, in different pla
ces, in different degree. In some, how

The circle once drawn, it is not very easy
for those without to transcend it. The

"Never Say Die"
It would be difficult to name many kinds
0r business, yielding a rich harvest of pro
fit to the proprietors, which were not com
menced under heavy disadvantages, and
pursued for many year in the face of
frowning discouragement. For the first
few years, in any new enterprise, all is
uphill work tugging against the stream
and one has rarely wind or tide in his fa
vor. But if he breasts and ' buflet the
wave with lusty ai.tews'' if be heroical
ly resolves never to give up, and steins the
tide with "a heart of controversy" the
desired haven will heave in sight at last.
There is nothinz like a stubborn, doeced
will, in these thing the resolution "nev-
er to submit or yield ;" it works literacies,
and the stoutest obstacle become as cobweb
barriers before its all-potent energy. In
short, as an able writer has aaid, hardly
any difficulty could be cited, to which ihis
philosophy is not applicable ; and every
one will find, if he tries, that, be it through
the brakes of entangling and bewildering
passions, be it over the wide and unmarked
moor of uncertainty, be it through the
slough of despond itttlf, " whenever
there is a v. in, there is a way.",
The grand defect in many, however, is
that they have not the patience to stick to
an unpromising enterprise, many years ;
but, usually, just as they are on the eve of
reaching the turning point -Ihe critical
moment when, by a little extra exertion,
their long and thankless efforts would be
crowned with the most triumphant success
just then they get ItrtJ out, relax tl.eir
labors.and the whole enterprise is swamped

At length the Potato proceeded nearly as
follows :
