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 to his daddy, “we can’t help thinking,” and hops it is no harm. Wo omitted to state in the proper place, (hat we saw a steamship at ibe levee in New Orleans loading with corn for Galveston, Texas.—Mont gomery Mail. 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. Tub Pknmstlvabia Pkmobal Limbxtt Bill.—A Washington letter says: “Aprivate despatch recsivad by a Senator from Harris burg states that the Judiciary Committee of the renhsytnnla Legislature had unanimous ly agreed to report in ffcvor of tho repeal of the Personal Liberty hill. It was thought It wonM he put upon its passage to-morrow, and would past both) Houses in a fsw days.”
