and give the incredulous natives a proof that
the Frenchmen were better hunters than Arabs
could ever hope to be. The task wonld be an
easy one here, as I would have a comparative

complish that which I had often done in the
dark forest, and so I sent for my arms that I
had left at Constantine, and went down to pay
a visit to thejZinouls that inhabit the country
around Mount Zerazer, a place constantly fre
quented by lions. For some days after my
arrival, a drizzling rain obscured the moun
tains, and I remained in my tent, occupied
with the duties of the government that had
brought me from Constantine. On the first of
February, two fractions of the tribe Seguia
came in to join the chase that was to take place
ou the morrow.
I directed them to detail men enough to
hunt the woods through with the early light,
ami whenever they should find that the lion
was marked down, they should give a signal
by lighting a fire to serve as a rallying point
The remainder of the day I spent iu going
over the mountain, so as to hare a perfect
knowledge of the country. I found the hills
to be long and precipitous, with the eastern
side falling abruptly ofiT, and the western cut
up with gullies and copse-wood.
The next day,was clear, and a tropical sun as
it rose, glinted on a broad sheet of snow that
had robed the hills ou yesterday. At three
o'clock in the morning the village was awake
for the foray, the simple breakfast had teen
eaten, and the men of the tribe were scouring

some other call or sign, to know what was pass

little plateau. She looked over her shoujder,
and then dashed down, and passing within
ten feet of the place where I stood without
noticing me, was immediately lost to sight. 1
looked the way she came, to see the meamug
of her flight, aud heard the rolling of stones
and heavy steps on the other side of the ridge,
and at once recognized the step of a lum that
had been separated from his companions, and
was coming directly towards me. I was con
cealed behind a little bush by the same moun
tain path the gazelle had followed, and I expect
ed he would come out close by me. ime
waitiug with my gun to my shoulder for his
appearance, a loud scream came to urn from
behind, and turning round. I saw the lion
had passed me out of sight, and was stand-
mg at the foot of the rock, gazing up at my
two nrmor-bearers, who were in the anticipa-
tion of immediate death.
The distance was about forty paces, and I
fired without hesitation, aiming for the shoul
der. Tlie lion fell at the report of my gun,
but immediately regained his feet, when anoth
er ball struck him iu the side.. He gave one
roar that threw tho two Arabs into convulsions
of fear, and then sprang over a sheer precipice
of fifty feet in height with a single bound, and
the dark ravine below received his last strug-

looking the plateau, at the moment I fired roy

leap into the Hades below. They came run

from ledge to ledge, and I had great difficulty

gun to my shoulder, and then halted. She
gave an anxious glance over the shoulder, and
then showed me her teeth, hissing like a cat,
and tossing her bead. I took aim at her shoul
der, and fired. With the explosion of the gun,
she doubled np like a snake, and then, with
all her strength, bounded at me, but before
she could make a second leap, my remaining
ball struck her in the neck, and she fell dead.
The Arabs came running from every side at
my double shot, and when they saw the dead
lioness at my feet, they knelt one by one, to
kiss the hand which bad given them a lesson
never to be forgotten. ,
In January. 1850, I was summoned by the
same people to come to tbeir help against the
mighty—as two lions bad emigrated from
Aurcs, and since their arrival, there bad been
nothing but rapine and vexation of spirit.
The morning after I reached the Zerazer, I
was standing on the high plateau of the moun
tain, while ten Arabs beat up the ridge on one
side, and ten on the other, having agreed to
come together on the highest point of the range.
The trackers on the northerly side found
nothing but old spoors snowed under, but their
comrads, more fortunate, came upou the very
lair of the lions. Astonished at being awak
ened at so unseasonable an hour, they got up
from their beds, and finding the prudent Arabs
had placed themselves beyond all reach, they
took to another cover, grumbling very much
in their own language at this annoyance.
The Shick of the Seguiaus who was with
me iu the hunt, and came up to tell me what
had been discovered, said that the lions were
brothers, and that one seemed to protect the
other, and was constantly showing fight. We
started off, but did not reach tbeir lair until tbc
afternoon. The Arabs, who were standing
sentinel around, told tne that they were still
there, and that one had showed himself several
times outside of the bushes as though anxious
for revenge. After having placed the Arab
bureau, who bad accompanied me, iu a place
of safety, I ordered all the natives to leave and
keep out of sight, retaining oue near me to
carry my arms. The ruse succeeded admira

stairs to tbc dinner-room, where a splendid
wedding breakfast had been laid,'to save trou

tie fellows, eight in number when assembled,

good meal. They ordered her to get them
out wine, and to cut her own wedding cake
for them ; and tlieu, seated at the head of the
table, site was compelled to preside at this ex
They ate and drank, laughed and joked;
and Adelaide quick of ear and eye, bad thus
time to study, in her quiet way, the figures
and voices of the whole set.
When the repast was ended, and the plate
was transferred to a sack, they prepared to
depart, whispering togther, and glancing at
the young lady. For the first time Adelaide’s
courage gave way, aud she trembled ; but it
was uot a consultation against her; they toid
her that they did u it wish to harm her—that she
was a ‘jolly weuch, reg’lar game,” aud they
wouldn't hurt her, but that she must swear uot
to give an alarm until 9 or 10 next day, wben
they should be off all safe. To this she was.
of course, obliged to assent, and then they
all insisted on shaking bauds with her. She
noticed, during this parting ceremony, that
one of the rutfiaus had ouly three fingers on
bis left hand.
Alone iu the despoiled room Adelaide, faint
aud cxhaiftted, awaited the first gleam of
daylight—then, os the robbers did not return,
she stole up to her room, undressd and fell iu
to a disturbed slumber. Tbe consternation of
the family next morning might be imagined ;
and Adelaide’s story was still more astounding
than the fact of the robery itself. Police was
scut for from London, and they, guided by
Adelaide’s lucid description of her midnight
guests, actually succeeding in capturing every
oue of the gaug. who the young lady had no
difficulty iu identifying aud swearing to, the
“three lingered Jack” being the guiding clew
to the discovery. The stolen property was
nearly all recovered, aud the old rector always
declared, aud with truth, that he owed his life
to the self-possession and judgment of his el

The remaining ball gave tbe coup de grace

and the greatest hunt that bad ever gathered
on the Ztrazer was ended.

A midnight Adventure.
A striking instance of self command, by a
lady whose fears must have been powerfully
excited, aud whose life of afllucncc had prob
ably never before given her nerves any severer
test than is incident to the vexations of domes
tic cares, is given in Chambers’Journal of last
month. We copy the adventure premising,
by way of explanation, that the lady was the
daughter of a rector residiug iu a quiet Eng
lish country village,—aud was upon the eve
"The wedding day was to be on the mor
row of that on which our adventure happened.
Grand preparations were made for the wed
ding ; and the rector’s fiue old plate, and the
costly gifts of tho bride wero discussed with
pride aud pleasure at the Hare and Hounds,
in the preseuce of some strangers, who had
come down to a prize fight which had taken
place in the neighborhood.
That night, Adelaide, who occupied a sepa
rate room from her sister, sat up late—long
after all the household had retired to rest. She
had a long interview with her father, and had
been reading a chapter to which he had direc
ted her attention aud since had packed up her
jewels, Ac. She was consequently still dress
ed when the church clock tol'ed midnight. As
it ceased, she heard a low noise like that of a
file ; she listened, but could distinguish noth
ing clearly. It might have boeu made by one
c f tlie servants still about, or perhaps it was
only the creaking of the old trees. She heard
nothing hut the sighing of the winter winds
for mam- minutes afterwards. House break
ers were mere myths iu primitive Thydon. and
the bride elect without a thought of fear re
sumed her ocupation. She was gaziug on a
glittering set of diamonds, destined to be worn
at the wedding, when her bed-room door soft
ly opened. She turned, looked np, and be
held a man with a black mask, holding a pis
tol in his hand, standing before her.
Sbo did not scream, for her first thought
was for her father, whoslcpt in the next room,
and to whom any sudden alarm might be death,
for he was olu, feeble, aud suffering from heart
complaint. She confronted the robber boldly,
and addressed him iu a whisper: ’lou are

in the next room and to be startled from Ins
sleep would kill him. Make no uoise, I beg
The fellow was astonished aud cowed. ‘We
won’t make no noise,” he replied suddenly
"if you give us everything quietly."
Adelaide drew back and let him take her
jewels- not without a pang, for they were pre
cious love gifts, remarking at the same time,
that more masked ruffians stood at the half-
opened door. As he took the jewel-case and
watch from the table, and demanded her purse
she asked him if he intended to go into her
father’s room. She received asurly affirmative.
"He wasn’t going to run the risk and leave
half the tin behindShe propped instantly
that she would go herself, saying: "I will
bring you whatever you wish, and you may
euard me thither, and kill me if I play false
to you ” The fellow consulted his comrades,
and after a short parley, they agreed to the
proposal; and with a pistol pointed at her head,
the dauntless girl crossed the passage, and
entered the rector's room. A ery gently she
stole across tbe chamber, and reinoviug his
purse, watch, keys, and desk, gave them up
to the robber who stood at the door. 1 be old
man slept peacefully and calmly, thus guarded
by his child, who softly shut the door, and de

A writer on board tbe U. S. flagship Cum
berland, iu a letter from Porto Praya to the
Boston Courier, trives an interest description
of Benguela and the couutry adjacent. oc„
guela is the capital of the Portuguese province
of the same name, and contains about 2d0t) in
habitants, of whom 100 are whites, or of mix
ed blood, and the rest pure blacks.
The country abounds in game, and the riv
er swarms with crocodiles and hippopotami,
while twenty miles iu the interior, lions, tigers
and elephants are to he found. During the
stay of the Cumberland at Benguela, a party
of natives from the interior arrived, laden with
elephant's tusks aud gum copal. They are
described us being tall aud erect* aud soluc of
them good looking, aud of graceful carriage ;
hut they were all miserably dirty aud emaciat
ed, and nearly—some of them quite—without
clothing. They exchange their ivory aud gum
with the Portuguese for coarse cotton cloth,
some old coudeuiued government muskets,
coarse graiued powder, aud a tew bottles ot
rum—the Portugese getting the best of tbe
bargain ; aud they were again fleeced by the
women of nearly all they obtuiued, save tbe
rum, which they took good care to drink at
once. The writer describes a native village
which he visited, where there was such danc
ing, jumping and shouting among the natives,
iu honor of the Americans, that they seemed
to be so mauy maniacs.
i'ue Cumberland remained two days at the
mouth of the Cougo river, sending a boat up
the river to look for slavers, but fiudiug none.
Several American slavers had lately made their
escape with full ca.gos ot slaves—among them

From the Fulaski Times.
The .Heeling on Saturday,
It will be seen by reference to another col
umn. that a meeting of our citizens was held
on Saturday last, and a delegation of twenty-
fire appointed to the meeting, of the friends of
the Fort Valley Sc Brunswick Railroad, to be
held in Perry on the 16th inst. AVe trust
that the friends of this enteprise in Pulaski
anil elsewhere, will enter into this matter at
once, with spirit and determination, for we re
gard the Fort Valley & Atlantic Railroad os
the only foundation upon which we can rea
sonably have a hope for Railroad facilities. It
is, therefore, important that exertions, com
mensurate with the magnitude of the enter
prise. he made by those interested in it. We
feel confident that the tbiug is practicable,
and if the friends of the road wilj grasp the
menus which they can command, it will suc
ceed. aud that top, at no very remote period.
The importance and benefits of the road are
incalculable, and will add largely to the pop
ulation and wealth of the counties of Houston,
Pulaski, Wilcox, Irwin, Coffee, and the other
counties throngb which it may run, besides.af
fording advantages and benefits, of vast im
portance. to'Columbus and to the people on
the Aluscogee and South Western Railroads,
by bringing them nearer Savannah, and also
by giving them a choice of two seaports—Sa
vannah and Brunswick. And wc venture tbc
prediction, if built, the Road will be second to
none iu the State in the profits aud dividends,
which it will declare. AVe look to the meet
ing. at Perry, with much interest, and hope it
will give such energy to the enterprise that
will result in its ultimate success.
Wc regret to hear that a gentleman of this
city, of distinguished literary and scientific
attainments, one who bears a venerated name,
and whose genius and science has given an
important improvement to the cities of tbe U-
nited States, has been so far bewildered in the
mazes of Spirituajisut as to believe that he is
wrongly mated with an amiable and devoted
wife, aud has found his spiritual affinity with
another young lady. As we have been infor
med. the wile, though heart-broken by the
development, and having oue child, has assen
ted to the request pf her husband for a sepa
ration, and be bas gone to Indiana to procure
a divorce in order that he may marry ins new
affinity, who, we believe, is, like his wife, a
lady of intelligence, amiability, and irreproach
able in character.—Boston Traveller, 29lb.

Burning a Negro at tlie Slake,
A correspondent of the Ataysville Eagle
gives the following particulars of the recent
burning of a negro at Troy, Ky., for the mur
der of his master:
Ou New Year’s day, the annual negro sales
took place at Troy, the couuty seat, and there
was quite a collection of people there; every
thing weut on smoothly until about 3 o'clock
in the evening, when Air. James Calaway, a
brother-in-law of the deceased, mounted upon
an old goods-box before a store door, and ad
dressed the people for about fifteen minutes.
He said if the mass of the people felt as he did,
and would do tbeir duty, which he believed
they would, that they would take the black
murderer out of jail, and burn him at the
stake, in the presence of all tbe negroes that
were there, to set an example before them,
and show them what will be the result of all
such conduct if there should ever be such a-
gain. Then he closed by saying, “AH that
feel as I do, will follow me.” He then leaped
from tbe stand, aud there was a general shout
given, and he led the way to the jail, and nine-
tenths of the multitude following. On arri
ving at the jail, they found the Sheriff and
Jailor, who did all they could to suppress the
mob, but all to no purpose.
They now mustered some 800 or 1000 strong.
They then commenced with sledge hammers,
crow-bars and axes, and in about an hour en-
eutered the jail and brought forward their
victim (the negro murderer. They marched
him to the center of the jail yard, drove down
a large stake and chained him, in an erect po
sition, hand and feet fast to the stake. There
was an abundance of shavings and fine split
wood piled around him—this consumed some
half hour. During this time the negro talked
to tbe negroes that gathered round him. He
told them that he had a good master, and that
he was always treated too well and given too
many liberties, and for them to take warning
in time and never do as he bad done. Then
the torch was applied, and he seemed to be
entirely indifferent about it until the flames
began to burn as high as his knees. Then he
began to twist and snort and groan, and in
about a minute more he commenced to scream.
He gave some of the most hideous screams
that I ever beard come from any human be
I could not stand to see any more and left.
When I left the flames were burning as high
as his head. I was only a spectator, took no
hand either for or against. I think that there
were some 1500 to 2000 people to witness this
dreadful scene, and 200 or 300 negroes.

and at the present prices we see no reason why they
should not he found, as they ought to be. in every
household. Several varieties are manufactured,
adapted to various purposes. So far as public opin

emphatically accorded to the Wheeler and Wilson
machine for family use, and for manufactures in the
same range o£ purpose and material. During the
present autumn the trials have been numerous, and
all the patients of any pretension have been brought
fairly into competition. In every case, the Wheel
