been directed into paths which ourselves
we should not have elected to follow.
Our unwilling steps have proved the
most direct to the place of safety. The
wisest counsels of our wisest men have
been thwarted by events again and
again. Unlooked for instruments of de

Local Military Reminiscences
MR. EDITOR :—As some time has elap
sed since the publication of your last
"muster roll," and as it does not seem
likely that any one else is able or will
ing to furnish you a roll of the "
GAL RA#GERS," I will therefore essay one
myself, made from memory—for I really
think the " Rangers " are worthy of a
place in the series of your "Local Mili
tary Reminiscences." Should any mem
ber of that ancient and redoubtable'iifle
corps, feel himself slighted, in not find
ing his name in its list as here published,
he can have it afterwards included in an
adenda or appendix, by furnishing you
with the same. Or what might be bet
ter still, suppose before publishing this,
you• request—through the golumns of
your paper—all those, who knew them
selves to have been members of the
company aforesaid, to send in their
names for the purposa of publication, in
the absence of an authentic roll from
the proper parties. This may resell the
case, and be satisfactory "aCround."

The first commissioned officers of the
Rangers were as follows, viz :
Capt. john Huss,
let. Lieut. Frederick Haines,
2nd. do. John Hertzler.
Capt. Huss continued in office for
seven'years, the - legal term of the com
pany, but at a subsequent election A.
N. Cassel was made Ist Lieut. and John
?ark 2nd. Lieut. in which capacity they
served during the last three and a half
years of its term. I think that the first
"Orderly Sergeant" was Samuel D. Mil
ler, but that subsequently, Joseph Bu
cher and J. T. Anderson were respect
ively elected to that post.
I cannot at this time recall any of the
other non-commissioned officers, and
there is a possibility that I may have
placed some names on the roll that
ought not to he there, and that I have
omitted a number of others that ought,
to be there.
There is a remarkable "sprinkling" of
Johns on the roll, there being some
eightlen or, twenty : . ,of that name, and
what is also, not less remarkable, a large
proportion of that name have , passed in

Dog Fight in Frogtown.
There is an excellent moral to the
following story which is told with great
skill, It shows ns how a whole village
is sometimes torn to pieces by a fight
between two puppies.
The most remarkable fight on record
came, off at Frogtown, on the frontier of
Maine, some years ago. It engrossed
the entire community in, one indiscrimir
nate melee—interminable lawsuits or
suits at law—distraction of the town
and its downfall or ruin. •
A fanciful genius, named Joe Tucker,
a man about town, a- lounger without
visible means of support—a do nothing,
loafing, cigar-smoking, good natured
fellow, owned a dog.; a sleek, intelligent,
and rather, pretty beast, always at Joe's
heels, and known as well as his master,
and liked far more by the Frogt owners.
One day Joe and his dog were passing
Bunion's grocery store, when a pie -bald,
tvoed,wagon bounded on to Joe Tudker's
dog—knocked him heels Over head, and
so frightened Bob Carter's wife who
was passing towards her husband's
blacksmith shop with his dinner, that
she stumbled backwards, and her old
sunbonnet flopped off, and scared the
horse attached to 'the wagon. He star
ted, hit Latherem's barber,pole, upset a
load of wood, all Of which falling down
Gumbo's refreshment cellar, stifock one
of Gumbo's children on the head, killed
it for a short time stone dead, and so
alarmed Mrs. Gumbo, that she dropped
a stew-pan of boiling hot oysters into
the lap instead of the dish of the custo
mer, who sat waiting for the savory con
coction by a table in the corner. Mrs.
Gumbo rushed for the child ; the custoT
mer for the door. Mrs. Gumbo scream
ed. and thecustomer yelled 1
"Oh ! oh i oh-oh-oh, my poor child I"
cried Mrs. Gumbo.
"Eh, a-he-e-e•e," screamed the poor.
"Oh, murder•r-r ! Oh, my everlasting
sir, I'm scalded to all eternity 1"
"Murder, murder 1" roared the poor
The horse, a part of the wagon, and
some wood were on their mad career.
The owner of the strange dog came out
of the store justin lime to' see Joe Tuck
er seize a rock' to' demolish the Ravage
dog, and not waiting to see Joe let drive,
gays him such a pop on the back that
poor Joe fell forty feet up the street,
and striking along ladder upon which
Jim Ederby was perched, paint-pot in
hand some thirty feet from terra firma,
brought ladder, Jim, and paint pot
sprawling to the earth, crippling poor
Jim for life, and sprinkling blue paint
over the broadcloths, satinets; and ,cali
coos of Abraham Miller, a formal and
even tempered Quaker, who ran out of
the door just as the two dogs had gone
fairly at it, hip and thigholip and catch.
A glance at matters seemed to convince
Abrabam of - the trde state "of the 'case ;
and in an unusually elevated voite, Abra
ham called out to Joe Tucker. who had
righted up ;
. "Joseph Tacker, thy dog's a-fighting !"
"Let 'em fight it oat," yelled the pug
nacious owner of the strange.dog. "Let
them fight it opt; I'll bet a log of wood
my dog can beat any dog in town, and
I Can beat the owner."
"We have said Abraham Miller was a
quiet man; Quakers are proterbially so.
But the gauntlet thrown- down by the
stranger from the country stirred the
gall of Abrahain, and he rushed into
the store ; and from the back yard, hav
ing slipped his collar, Abrahain brought,
forth a brindle cur, strong, low, and
"Friend," said the excited Quaker,
"thy dog shall be well beaten, I. promise
theel Hyke, seize upon him I" - -
"Turk, here boy 1" •
And the dogs went at it.
Bob Garter, the smith coming up in
time to hear the stranger's defiance to
the town, and bent on a fight with some
body for the insult and ditnage to his
wife, clamped the collar'ef the strange;
and by a series of ten-potitia-ten upon
the face, back, and sides of his bull an--
tagonist, with his natural sledge-hafinners
Bob stirred up the strength and ire of
the bully stranger to the top of his com
pass, and they made the sparks fly
Joe Tucker's dog, reinforced b,y Abra
ham Miller's, took a fresh stark and be
tween the two the strange dog was beirig

claiming as he did so :
"Fie, fie, for shame ! disgraceful !
you mean citizens of Frogtown, will you
stand by and—"
"Don't thee, don't thee strike my dog,
Deacon. Pugh !" cried Abraham Miller,
advancing to the Deacon, who was about
to cut right and- left among the dogs
with his cane.
"Your dogs !" shouted the Deacon,
with evident fervor.
"Not my dogs, Deacon Pugh," said
"What did you say so for, then ?'
shcluted the Deacon.
"I never said my dogs, Deacon Pugh."
"You did !" responded the Deacon
"Deacon Pugh, thee speaks ground
lessly," said the Quaker.
"Yon tell a falsehood, Abraham Mil-
"Thee utters a mendacious assertion,"
"You—you—you tell a lie 1" bawled
"Thee has provoken my evil passions,
Deacon Pugh," shouted the stalwart
Quaker, "and I will chastise thee."
And into the Deacon's wool, went the
The Deacon, nothing loth, entered
into the fight, and we leave them thus
to "nip and tuck" to look to the stran
ger and Bob Carter, who fought and fit,
and fit and fought,.until Squire Catchem
and the constable came up, and in the
attempt to preserve the peace and ar
rest the offenders, the Squire was thrust
through the window of a neighboring
watchmaker, doing a heap of damage,
while lawyer Hooker, in attempting to
aid the constable, was hit in a mistake
by the furious blacksmith in the short
ribs, and went reeling down Gumbo's
cellar with frightful velocity. The
friends , and fellow-churchmen of Dea
con Pugh took sides against the Quaker
antagoniit, and the shop boys of Abra
lam, seeing their employer thus beset,
came to the rescue, while two Irishmen,
fall of fun and frolic, believing it to be
a "free fight," tried their hands and
sticks upon the combatants indiscrimin
ately, so indiscriminately, so that in
leas than half an hour the happy village
of Frogtown was shaken from its propri
ety by one grand, sublimely ridiculous,
and most terrific battle.
Heads and windows were smashed ;
children and women screamed ; dogs
barked; dust flew; labor ceased; and
so furious, mad, and excited became the
whole community, that a quiet looker
on, if there had been any, would have
sworn the evil ones were all in Frog
A heavy thunder storm finally put an
end to the row, the dogs were all more

a roan scalded, wagon broke, the horse
Tan himself to death, his owner badly
beaten by Bob Carter, whose wife and
wives of many others were dangerously
scared ; the painter was crippled, dry
goods ruined; a Quaker and a Deacon,
two Irishmen, Joe Tucker, town consta
ble, lawyer Hooker, Squire Catchem,
and some fifty others shamefully whip
ped. Lawsuits ensued, fends followed,
and the entire peace and good repute
of Frogtown annihilated—all by a re
fir, Tb. e frequent use of the name of
God, or the devil ; allusions to passages
of Scripture ; mocking at anything seri
ous or devout: oaths, vulgar by-words,
cant phrases, affected hard words, when
familiar terms will do as well ; scraps
of Latin, Greek, or French ; quotations
from plays, spoken in a theatrical man
ner these, much used in conversa
tion, render a person very contemptible
to grave and wise men.
