Tiger Chase by llaboou*.
The following account of a tigor chase is
extracted from (be North Lincoln Sphinx, a
regimental paper, published at Graham’s town.
The writer after alluding to bis sporting ex-
periencies of all kinds, and in all quarters of
the Globe, declares that he never witnessed so
novel or intensely exoiting a chase as that
about lo bedesoribed: Not long ago i spent
a few days at Fort,Brown, a small military
post on tbe banks of the Great Fish river,
where my friend W. was stationed. One
evening, as roy friend and I were returning
borne, after a some what fatiguing day’s buck
shooting, we were startled by hearing tbe
roost extraordinary noises not lar from us.—
U seemed as if all tbe demons in the infernal
regions had been unchaiued, and were amus
ing themselves by trying to frighten us poor
mortals by their horrid yelling. We stood iu
brcathlesscxpeetntion, not knowing what could
possibly be the oause of this diabolical row,
with all sorts of strauge conjectures flashing
across our minds. Nearer and nearer the
yelling and screaming approached, and pres
ently ibe cause became visible to our asten
ished eyes. Some three or four hundred yards
to our right, upon the brow of a hill, a spotted
leopard (commonly called, in this country, a
tiger, though much smaller than the lord of
the Indian jungles) came in view, hounding
along, with all the speed and energy of des
pair, while close behind him followed an enor
mous pack of buboons, from whose throats
proceeded the demoniacal sounds that had, a
few seoonds before, so startled us.
Our excitmsnt in the chase, as you may
sui pose, was intense. On went the tiger,
making for the river, the baboons following
like avenging demons, and evidently gaining
ground upon their nearly exhausted foe,
though their exulting yells seemed each mo
ment to increase bis terror and his speed.—
They reached the stream, the tiger still a few
yards iu advance, and, with a tremendious
bound, he cast himself into its muddy waters
aud made for the opposite bank. The next
moment his pursuers, in admirable confusion,
were struggling after him, and as the tiger
(now fearfully exhausted) clambered on the
land again, tbe largest and strongest of tbe
baboons were olose at bis heels, though many
of the pack (the old, the very young, and the
weakly,) were struggling in the water. In a
few moments all had passed from our
sight, behind tho brow of the opposite
bank; but their increased yelling, now sta
tionary behind the hill, told ue that th« tiger
had met his doom, and that their strong arms
and jaws were uow tearing him limb from
limb. As the evening was far advanced, and
we were still some miles from home, we did
not cross the river to be in at the death ; but,
next morning, a few boftes and scattered frag
ments of flesh and skin showed what had been
tbo tiger’s fate. On our return home we were
told by some Dutch gentlemen that such hunts
are not uncommon when a tiger is rash enough
to attack the young baboons, which often hap-,
pens. All these creatures for miles around,
assemble and pursue ihcir enemy with relent
less fury, to his death. Sometimes the ehase
lasts for days, but it invariably olosoe with
the destruction of tbe tiger—a striking in
stance that the idea of retributive justice is
not confined to man alone.
Crows and Corn*
Everybody has heard a gang of crows squaw
king "Corn ! Com ! Corn 1” Just so is now the
cry of the press throughout the Gulf and At
lantic States, proclaiming the approaching
scarcity of cereals, and urging planters to sow
more oorn this year and less ootton.
From personal observation in Mobile and
New Ualeans, tbe la6t week in January, we
inform the publio that the purchase of Western
corn had already commenced on a large scale.
Huge piles of oorn in sacks were unloading in
Mobile. At New Orleans the levee almost
grunted” beneath its weight of oorn, te be
sold to those who plant cotton mostly. Whole
aores of the levee were covered with sacks of
corn piled up breast high. This early begin,
ning of (he purchase of corn surely indicates
that millions of dollars worth of cotton must go
to purchase Black Republican corn this year.
For this is there no remedy to be found for the
future in casting our crops the present spring ?
It may be a matter in which we have small in
terest, and we would not “for tbe world” at
tempt to dictato how others should manage
their own affairs—but when we reflect that the
South may have an army to feed before the
new oorn orop oan be gathered, although we
might say nothing—yet, as the little boy said

A Knra that Cakhot ns Dethrokbu.—The
Northern papers are quoting with great gusto
John Mitohel's letter to the Charleston “Mer
cery” about raising cotton in China, and there
is a loud clapping of hands in anticipation of
the downfall of King Cotton. But J. B. Smith,
Esq., the member for Stockport, England, in
a p«per read before the Society of Arts, slated
that nowhere else upon the habitable globe
oan Uplands ootton (“nine bags of whioh En
gland eonaumes for ono hag of all other quali
ties put togtther”) bs raised outside of the
Golf States and the Carolinas. Much was
hoped from India as a cotton growing coun
try ; but India, while it supplies none of the
Uplands cotton, consumes enormous quantities
of it. So Will it be with China. In spite of
Abclition efforts to grow the right quality of
ootton in other countries, there is a prospec
tive demand for four thousand seven hundred
million pounds more cotton then is now grown,
even to reach the French rate of consumption,
which Is four pounds a head, against an aver
age of nine pounds a head in England, and
twelve pounds in Antenca.
