I ' LIFE IN TIIE WOODS.
Among the earliest settlers in the
wilds of Salmon River was a Vermont
e.e, by the name of Dobson a large,
resolute, and aihletic man. - Returning
cne evening from a fruitless hunt after
his vagranticows, which according tqcus
tomi in the new countries, had been turn
ed into tho woods to procure their own
subsistence from the rank herbage of the
early summer, just before emerging from
the forest upon the clearing of Uis neigh
tor, the lute IVJr. .Joteph Sleeper, he saw
a large bear descending from a lofty syc
amore, where he had beea'iu .quest.prob
ab!y, of hoaey. A bear ascends a tree
much more expertly man ne descends Jt
bsmg obliged to come down stern
My friend Dobson did not .very well
like to be joined in his evening walk by
such a companion, and, without reflecting
what he should do with the "varmiut '
nfieward, ,he ran up to the tree oifnhe'
epposite side from the animal's body, and,
justbefore he reached the ground, . seiz
ed him firmly by' both his. fore-paws.
Eruin growled and gushed his tusks,
but he soon ascertained that hi3 paws
were in the grasp of paws equally iron
strung with his own.1' Nor could he use
his hinder claws to disembowed his an
antagonist, as the manner cf the bear i3;
inasmuch as the trunk of the tree wa?
between them. But Dobson's predica
mer.t, as he was endowed with rather
the most reason, was worse yet. - Nor
couli he venture to let go of him.sicce
the presumption was that Bruin would
not make him a very gracious return for
thuf, unceremoniously taking him by the
The. twilight was fast deepening into
darkness, and his position was far less
comfortable than iiotherviise would have
been at the same hour, surrounded by
his wife and children -at the euppertable
to say nothing of the gloomy prospect for
the eight. Still, as Joe Sleepers house
was not far distant, he hoped to be able
to call him to his assistance. .
But his lungs,though none of the weak
est, were unequal to the ta.sk; and, al
though he hallooed the livelong night,
making the woods and the welkin ring,
he succeeded no better than did. Glen
dower of old, in calling spirits from the
It was a wearisome night for Dcb3on;
such a game of hold-fast h& had never
been eDgaged ia before. Uruin, too.was
probably somewhat worried, although .he
could not describe his sensations in Eng
lish albeit he took the regular John
Bull method of making knosvn his dissat
isfaction that is to say, he growled in
cessautlv. But there was no Jet-go in
the case, and Dobson was therefore ua-
,der the nscecsity cf holding fast, until it
seemed to his clinched and aching fing
ers as though the bear's paws and his
own had grown together.
As daylight returned, and . the smoke
from Sleeper's chimney, began , to .curl

his cries for succor; and.hrs heart was

cf the paws cf the Hack varmint all night,
it strikes me you'd think you'd paid dear
enough for it. But, if you heard nw
calling for helf in the night, way did'nt
you come and see what was the trouble?'
Oh, I was just f ;rg tired to bed,

.well, den'tbe in'a huff. Tommy. It's
never too late to do good. So, hold
tight now, and don't let the 'tarnal crit
tur get loose, while I split his head open.'
"No, no," said Dobson. "After hold
ing the beast here all night, I think I
ought to have the satisfaction of killing
him. So, you may just take hold of his
paw3 here, and I will take the ax.and let
a streak of daylight into his skull about
the quickest. .
- The proposition being a fair cna, Mr.
Sleeper was too reasonable a man to ob
ject. He was no coward neither, and
he theaeupon stepped up to the -tree, and
cautiously taking the bear with both his
hands, relieved honest Dobson from h'n
The hands cf the latter, though sadly
stiffened by the tenacity with which they
had been clinched for so many hours;,
were soon brandishing the ax, and he
apparently made ail preparations fcr giv
mg the deadly blow and deadly it would
have been, had he struck, since, like the
eons cf Zerulah, Dobson need to strike
but once. But to the surprise of Sleeper
he did not strike ; and," to hi3 further
consternation. Dobs&a swung the ax up
pon his shoulder,' and marched away,
whistling as he went.with as much ap
parent indifference a3 the other had
shown when coming to his relief.
It was now Sleeper's turn to make the
forest vocal with his cries. In vain he
raved, and called, and threatened. Dob
sou walked cn. and disappeared, leaving
his friend as sad a prospect for his break
fast as himreif had had for supper.
Hour after hour had passed away, and
Sleeper still found himself at bo-pecp
with Sir Bruin. In the course of the
afternoon, however, when Dobson sup
posed that tae lesson'' he was' teaching
been thoroughly learned by his pubil and
when he thought the latter would wil
lingly forget his resentment for the sake
fcr tiie sake of succor, the sturdy Yankee
returned, aud by a single blow relieved
bcih bear and man from their troubles
in the same instant.
Sleeper thought rather hard of Dob
son for some time ; but no real breach
of friendship ensued, and indeed the two
borderers became afterwards better
friends and neighbors than before.
Eornius or tiie Chcjcnne and
From the last letter of the Democrat's
correspondent, accompanying the Han
cock Iudian Expedition we extract the
following account of the destruction of
the Indian camp:
This morning General Hancock or
dered the Cheyenne and Sioux lodges to
be burnt. He was compelled ' lo adept
this course, because, after tne delivery
of his speech to the fifteen chiefs, they
went and burnt three stations on the
smoky Hill route, and rcalped, disem
boweled and burnt three men employed
at Fossil creek station; ran c2" several
mules aud horses on that route, and gave
a good scare generally to the traders.
According to Custar's official report to
General Hancock, the station hands ore
leaving for "America," -and the ranch
men are baricading their ranches and
preparing for a desperate reaistence.
At a council of war held it was deemed
advisable to retaliate immediately by
burning the Indian village. The fol
lowing is a true list of the goods- burnt
this morning : 2-51 ledges, 912 buffalo
robe3, 436 horn saddles, 435 travesties,
2S7 bead matsv191 axes, 190 keille3.77
frying pans, 350 tin cups, 30 whetstones,

daily during September. For the five
succeeding months the result as to the
