‘"Yet cool and crafty if occasion need."
It is often astonishing with what nn
shrinking firmness, anti undaunted self
possession, spine individuals can encoun
ter the greatest dangers, or the most era
barrasing and, perilous conditions, that
can be conceived in life.. With a fixed
and fear:less determination they are ready
to meet all emergencies, and with an ap
parent dogged indifference, to submit
to the most horrible contingencies. But
this character is not so much born with
them, or assumed in riper years, as it is
the result ''of a sort of educational train
ing, ainid scene of hair-breadth escapes
and every day dangers, 'in youth, and
through manhood, to old age. Perhaps,
the most remarkable trait, iu the charac
ter of the persons alluded to, is their
presence of mind, and the coolness and,
even craftiness with which they meet
danger rind avert it. It does not dePend
upon intellectual attainments, nor yet
always upon physieal force, but upon a
certain cast of mind that is capable of
resorting to extreme-expediencies—how
ever weak they may seem—and by the
force. of circumstances and almost .super
human energy—an energy that is exhib
ited more in its results than in its exter
nal manifestations during its progress—
accomplishing—and accomplishing tiler
onghly—what, a greater amount of intel
lectual and physical power would shrink
from with the most appaling fear. It
belongs' to no particular age or condition
of life, arbitrarily speaking'', for it is found
in the cot or cabin of civilization's fron
• tier, and in the mansion of the most pop
ulous of cities; but is'only brought, out
as occasion and circumstances concen
trate ,events into an active focus, and
then we find exhibitions of intrepidity,
and manifestations of "mind and muscle"
akin to it, where there had been no sus
picicin of their existence. Nor is it ex
eldsively a charnoteristin of the sterner
sex, for some women pnssess it. in us re
markable,a degree as men do, and very
often in those times which "try men's
souls," woman his 'proved herself the
better general of the two,' for, her quick
perceptions - have h'iad her tO;tgee andika-:
vide against danger before man by the
exercise of•his reasoning faculties, could
be sensible ofits approach or presence.
There are also instances on record where
great intrepidity has 'been exhibited by
the Indian and the African, bat as a na
tional trait it belongs more exclusively
to the Caucasian race, for white men, in
the countries of other. dark and tawney
nations, have shown more intrepidity and
skill. in encountering the dangers and
perils in cidental to those countries than
the natives themselves have ; and have
also been more prolific in means to over
come them or to evade them, and without
manifesting soy of the terror that natives
usually do.
Dly •memory at present only . serves me
with the leading , facts of several instan..
ces of this characteristic in the various
walks of life; without being able to recall
all the attending circumstances. These
have all been elsewhere recorded but they
are briefly introduced here in order .to
more fully illustrate our.subject.

P. L. Baker, Editor and Proprietor.
of Paris, after the` first Napoleon's dis
asterous Russian campaign, and prior to
his banishMent to the Island of the Blb,
a Prussian officer entered a shaving sa
loon where all the inmates had fled save
a boy of about fifteen years of age, who
felt the obligation of careing for the
property of his master paramount to his
own ease or safety. The officer drew
his sword with a stern and scowling,
frown, and laying, it upon a table, com
manded the boy peremptorily to shave
him, declaring in the most positive, man
ker that if he lacerated his face in the
smallest degree, or drew the minutest
drop of blood during,the operation, he
would that moment run him through
with the sword lying before him. Not
the least undaunted and with the moat
consumate self possession, the boy as
sented and proceeded to • comply with
the officers wishes. With strong nerves,.
a steady hand and a fixed eye, and also
an inward resolve not visible to the offi
cer,— he performed the tonsorial opera
tion "to a hair," which met the unquali
fied approbation of his formidable and
unceremonious patron. The officer was
so completely astonished at the boy's
coolness and manifest absence of fear or
embarrassment, from first to last, that
before leaving the' saloon, he asked the
boy what he would have done, had 'he
lacerated his face, or drawn blood in
shaving him, for, added he, 'had you done
so, I should have instantly run you
through with the sword agreably: to my
promise. The boy, without loosing any
of his self control, replied as earnestly,.
that he knew the officer would have, kept
his word, and therefore had he been so
unfortunate as to have drawn a drop of
blood, that moment he would most cer
tainly have cut Ms '(the officers) throat
fi ,
'oni ear to ear with. the Faze!. The offi
cef for a moment stood aghait, arid then
with blanched fear turned from the in-
trepid juvenile's presence and precipi
tately left the saloon, no doubt inwardly
thanking God for his narrow escape. It
does not effect this case to doubt whether
the, officer would have kept his word or
not, if the boy had made a mis cut upon
his face,; the boy at least believed he
would, and therefore he went to work
with a quiet determinatlon what course
he would pursue in such a contingency,
and manifested more of the intrepid
moral courage than the Officer did.
Another remarkabbi instance of this
character is exhibited in a duel between
a white man and an Indian, both of whom
were remarkable for their courage and
physical power. The Indian obtained
the advantage of a .choice of weapons
and distance, which were scalping knives,
and at arms length. It was stipulated.
that the parties should be 'divested. of
clothing as far down as their loins, and
stand face to face with their left hands
lashed together, and each a deadly scalp
ing knife in the right hand. The odds
were against the white man, for the knife
was not his chosen weapon, and the dis.
tanee too close. But in coolness and in
craft he was equal to the Indian, and in
quickness and physical strength or slight'
of hand, he was his superior. ' Prom the
Indian's known dexterity in handling the
knife, and from his great muscular power
there seemed to be little hope for the
white man, nevertheless his courage
never, failed him, for a moment,,and he
conducted himself daring all of the, pre
liminary stages of the fight, with the at
most self control and the most unflinch
ing interpidity.' As the parties stood
there faCe to face with seeming intent'
upon the lives of each other, and the In
dian contemplating, doubtleSs the spot
where he would make the .fatal'-'plunge,
the white man was indulging in &differ
ent thought—a thought that required
for its ultimation the most inflexible
nerve and a surer aim than the- deadly
weapon can, command. Whilst the In
dian was regarding the white man's body,
the,white man, kept his eye fixed upon
the Indian's hand which so firmly grasped
the instrument of death. At length the
fatal signal was given, andinstantly the
white Man dropped his weapon and
siezed the Indian by the wrist;just as he
was making a pass a:t him with tbe deadly
knife, and by a sudden wrench, and with
almost super-human power, he broke off
the bones of the Indian's lower arm,like:
pipe stems, and left the powerless hand
dangling, like
,a supple to the couple of a
flail. The Indian of Course was "spoiled"
and conquered, and that too by the cool
ness the craftiness and the indomitable
self posses'sion of the white, min, who .
manifested .:more intrepidity. than. any
soldier in leading a "forlorn hope."
One more case in close approximation-
to.the foregoing, arid wu done.—rtot
that our stock is exhausted, hut that
these an; sufficient to define the position
we occupy, in the absence of those pow
ers of logical reasoning, which the more
gifted votaries of the pen are at all times
able to bring, to their aid, in substantia
ting a proposition or in fortifying a dis
putable ground.
A gentleman being on a visit to a
friend in the State of,Arkansas one day
took his gun and, proceeded alone in
quest of "small,game" in order to while
away the dull monotory of a summer day,
and to seek that excitement, which is so
abundently yielded by the sports of the
brook and field, in some of the new and
less frequented localities of these United
States. Re was not long. in chasing ,up
a covy of birds, but so much was he taken
aback by their sudden fintterings, that
they had passed beyond the reach of his
fire, before he could bring his fowling
piece to bear upon them. 13efore they
"lit" again, they had crossed a deep ra
vine, down and up whose steep sides the
now amateur sportsman would be obliged
to scramble before he could Approach
near enough to gain a,shot. Full of the
excitement of the chase, his resolution
was soon formed to continue the pursuit
at any odds. _Although this man com
paratively speaking was traversing new
ground in pursuit of new game, yet scenes
of peril and danger were by no means
new to him, and withal he was gifted
with great presenc.e of mind, and intrepid
courage, as the sequel will. show, In
descending . the steep declivity of the ra
vine, he was compelled to hold his gun
in his right hand, whilst with his lefehe
held to the prOje.Cting rocks' arid roots'
and shrubbery that -he encountered in
his progress, in order that he might not
loose his footing and 'be precipitated
with a'greater Speed than he desired to
go. About midway between the top
and the labttdni of the ravine he set' his
foot in -the coil.of a large and malignant
rattle snake, that had-'been basking in
the sun. He Was so situated at the mo
ment, that he could •not retreat upward
nor downward, before the snake would
have time to inflict upon him its deadly
wound, foi his foot was upon its tail and
he saw it raise its head in an attitude of
defence. But the man was equal, to the
occasion, and like the white man in the
deadly encounter with. the Indian, he
immediately dropped his gun and siezed
the snake, an inch behind its head, be
fore its sweep was spent in its fatal
strike, and lield it with ttie grasp of a
vice, Unable to disengage the reptile
from his foot—for it had contracted its
coil around his allele and held him fast
order that he might 'cast it into the
bottom _of the ravine, and give it its
quietes in a well directed shot from his
gun, his only resort was toe bring into ,
effect- one of those daring expediences,
which seemed to be a part of the pro
gramme which had been so unexpectedly
begun. 'Therefore, 'he went cooly and
undauntedly to work and"chawed off"
the serpent's head with his teeth, and
thus freed himself from his disagreeable
In relating these instances of coolness
and intrepidity ander these imergencies,
we by no Means desire that these char
acteristicS are to be mistaken for ihat

the happiness of old age. That is, the
moral gains more than the physical loses.
In, fact, the moral gains everything : and
if something is lost by the, physical, the
compensation is complete. Some one

American Agriculturist, which n o w
courts its 50,000 subscribers, while due
in part to the correct policy of the pub
lisher, viz.—to get up the best Possible
paper without regard to expense, and
then to make it widely known by liberal
advertising—is an indication of the
greatly-increased desire on the part of
cultivators for information upon the best
methods of tilling the soil. The present
circulation of the Agriculturist, it may
be remarked, is greater than that of the
entire agricultural press only a few years
ago. When this journal started there
were but two or three agricultural papers

Seward made a great speech at •Detroit,
Michigan, last week, which has been
telegraphed over the country. This ad
dress of the Governor, together with the
circumstances surrounding its delivery,
give' it a national importance. The Sen
ator paints a deplorable picture of the
*sent state of our nation, and the po
litical evils surrounding it. Internally
our Government is mismanaged, while
among the nations of the earth it is suf
fering from a want of foreign respect and
confidence. Pe does not think that
these evirs will induce disunion, nor does
the speaker anticipate such a contin
gency. The Democratic party, the Whig
party, and the short-lived American had
all failed to furnish a. practical solution
of the difficulties of the slavery question.
His counsel may be comprised in this
sentence, from his address ; "My humble
advice then, fellow -citizens, is, that we
return and re-establish the original poli
cy of the nation, and henceforth hold, as
We did in the beginning, that slavery is

condition of society within the jurisdic
tion, and under the authority, of the
Constitution._ of the, United States.”--
The speech is marked with the Senator's
usual ability, and may.. be regarded, as
very . conservative. ,

Carriage in which the rani of Caithness
has been trareling in ,Eleotland, has in
front all the appearance of. an ordinary
open carriage Which can be covered in

wheels much after the feel:doh of a per

being fitted on a pivot below the body
of the carriage, so as to be turned by the
Thehandle in the direction required.
The wheels are of small diameter, and in
width of rim fully double-those of ordi•

are behind, with,a seat for the stoker
whose occupation is not much more
cleanly than that of stokers in general.
The boiler may contain from 60 to 70
gallons of water, and retpriresto be re

ten miles distant, as the consumption of
water is about a gallon per minute on an
average. The engine m niee-hdreti pow
