DEAD SHOT BY MOONLIGHT.
BY AN OLD BLADE. /
Not far from a village, where the foot
of a niountain-spur is washed by the wa
ters of the Delaware, in a broad notch
walled in on cither hand by high precipi
tous masses of rock, surrouuded by a tall
hemlock ‘ and pines—there was I born,
and there my early years were passed, and
sometimes I think I could slc-p must calm
ly and sweetly there at the close of life’s
About a mile tistant from our house,
and on the top of the mountain, lived
Uncle Joe Wall, a sort of liybird— half
liuutor, half farmer, and a most singular
genius withal. He was tall, gaunt, round
shouldered, with a heavy stoop, and a face
about the ugliest I ever looked.upon.—
He had, however, a pair of tiie keenest
nnd yet the “ildest blue eyes that human
soul ever looked opt of. Buckskin breech
es, a course linen hunting shirt, martin
skin cap, and moccasins constituted his
usual attire. Ho was skilled iu every
species of woodcraft, and seemed born to
walk the paths of the forest. Quick of
car and eye, a tread as sileut at:d us steal
thy as that of a cat, steady ot nerve, seif
possessed beyond thepowerof disturbance
and with a command of the rifle such as
few have ever attained, he was clearly a
born hunter, and a most formidable ad
versary against which to contend. And
yet he wu° a most kind and gentle-heart
ed mau, full of quaint and quiet humor,
simple as a child, and yet abounding iu all
uiauly gifts. Everybody respected and
loved Ltiele Joe, and at every cabin tire
side was be a most welcome guest, llis
stories of border life, of adventures iu the
wilderness, of encounters with wolves aud
ferocious eoug.ir, were full of thrilling in
terest. Aud he told these stories its no
other man could toll them—in a few sim
ple words, without embellishment and yet
so told that you were thrilled and fascin
ated, and listened with almost breathless
On a clear, sunny afternoon in October,
18—,.Uncle Joe and I left my father’s
house for the purpose of attending a “ log
ging bee,” to w..ich we had been invited
by a neighbor, tivo or six miles away
he on foot, aud lon horseback. Our way
lay arouud the base of the “spur” to
which I have mentioned, where a road
had been excavated, and thence buck from
the river, and along the eastern side of
this “ spur ’’ to the place of destination.
Not a clearing or solitary cabin interven
ed. The grand old woods, cleft here and
there at. considerable intervals by some
pioneer settlement, or the “ chopping” ot
an adventurous emigrant, stretched with
its deep .-• itudes aud dark shadows for
a hull area miles’ on every side! Here
roamed the wi.d deer, the wolf, the bear,
and the eaturnoutt, as yet scarcely disturb
and by tiie sounds of advancing civilization.
How often have I lain by the hunter's tire
among the mountains, and during the long
watches of the winter’s night, listened to
the howl of the wolf, the crushing tread
of the black bear, and the scream of die
panther. Hut this is not my story.
The “logging bee” over, a pi tin bid
substantial supper was served, of which
venison and rye buscuits formed the sta
ple, and which in the eating detained the
company until after dark. Then followed
the “ parting drink,” the “ good-night,”
and a homeward journey through tiie Wood
Uncle Joe and I were the his! to leaie.
for lie never was in a hurry when gum:
cheer was to be had, and it was qufte nine
o’clock before we set out for home.’ And
when we did finally start, ( iiele Joe, aft
tor a rod or two of earnest endeavor, found
himself so weak In his walking sticks, that
lie whs obliged to uimint behind me; and
thus currying “ double,” our good horse
was left to bis own guidiuoo through the
dark path ot the forest. The q)d liunte.
grew more nr.d more top-heavy as we pro
ceeded at a slow pace over the tortuous
and uneven road, and but for incessant
efforts on my part, aided by his long legs,
we would have been unhorsed at altuo.il
Wc had accomplished about half our
journey, and were riding in silence un
broken save by the tread of the animal
which we bestrode, when the cry of a pan
ther came sounding down to us on the
night breeze from far up the side of the
mountain. This was so commou that it
scarcely aroused my companion, and the
distance at which it was uttered prevent
ed apprehension on my part. Not more
than a minute elapsed before that shrill,
mournful wail again broke upon tbe ear,
and from a point that iudi'-ated with an
appalling certainty that the animal was
descending upon our path.
‘•A panther,” said Uncle Joe, between
a grunt and a drawl; “and the critter
seems to be coming this way.”
“ sfes,” I replied, “ and I should judge
from his cry that hunger was driving him
to seek a supper.”
Scarcely had he uttered these words,
aud gather-d up the reins for the control
of my now thoroughly frightened horse,
when that terrible cry was repeated in clo
ser proximity, and the panther was heard
approaching us in long and crashing leaps
down the mountain side.
Uncle Joe by this time was completely
aroused from bis stupor — lie sat more
erect and firmly, and ttie ritie was brought
dotvu from bis shoulder .ud grasped tight
ly in his right band.
“ Wc are in for it, my boy,” said he, in
a low, hushed toue: “ it's rim or light,
and fight I guess; auy way, we’ll try the
first, aud if so be that we can keep out of
the claws of the critter till the moon gits
up over the tops of the trees, perhaps we
shall be all safe if we come to the last.”
Ruu it was, fjr the next fifteen
minutes, with such speed as woe aid com-1
maud over a rough road, a hen, with a
seream and a bound the blood-thirsty pur- |
suer sprang from a ledge of rocks iuto the
clear path, a short distance in our rear.
“Hold up,” said Uncle Joe; “ we’ve j
done up our ruuuiug, aud now the matter
must he settled after auotber fashion
There, I’ll get off’ and try titles with the
critter, and see whether he shall have nty
carcass or I his’n.”
At this time a flood of soft, silvery mo m
ight poured through the cleft iu the for
®!e Ctttlibci’t SlcpriPt.
est upon our road, when, looking back from
the place of our halt, the panther, au enor
mous animal, with blazing eyeballs, was
1 dimly revealed in a half crouching posi
i tion, not more than ten or fifteeu psees 1
“My legs are a little unsteady,” said
| Uncle Joe, “and my arms are shaky .like,
so I'll just lie down here iu the road, and
try a puli at the bloody varu.iut. When
the rifle crack a do you mu your horse!
down to the big pine by the spriug, and ■
; tiiere hold up and listen. It you don’t
hear my call when you get there, then j
ride home as fast as you can, for Uncle j
Joe will be iu kingdom come.”
i This was said deliberately, and without |
! the slightest tremor of voice 1 cannot I
! say that i was as self-pip:sessed, bred

The brave old man turned and took a
1 few steps towards his enemy, which seemed
to fie feeling sure of a supper, then stretch -
i ed himself out at the bottom Os a slight
knoll, across which he poised his rifle. I
turned my face now in the direction in
which 1 was to ride—a moment ot terri
; ble and agonizing suspense ensued, u mo
ment only, for l had no more than settled
myself on my beast than the signal came,
and 1 obeyed instructions. The goal was
j reached at a raciug gallop, and there I
drew up my panting steed, and turned to
! listen. Even then the halloo of Uncle
j Joe eame nuging chotrily through the
! arches of the forest to my ear. 1 turned
and rode back with a bounding heart and
there was the old limiter leaning on Ins
rifle, by the side of the dead panther. I
held out my hand, which he grasped, and
with choking utterance made out to say,
“ Uncle Jue!” “All my dear boy,” said
j lie, “ that was a shot worth telling on—
look there !” and lie lifted up the head of
the ‘<iiiin.il and pointed to a bullet Hole
immediately between the eyes.
We loaded the panther on the back of
I our horse, and walking on either side,
j vouched heme about the midnight hour.—
The family had not yet retired, and were

1 jlleeks blanched, and eyes tilled witti tears

i Dead Shot by Moonlight.
There is a charming tradition connected
with the site on wlnch the Temple of Solo
inoii was erected. It is said to nave been
occupied iu common by two Brothers, one
of whom had a family ; t.lic other had none.
‘H i tliits spot, wus sown a field of wheat.—
On tiie evening succeeding the harvest,
j the wheat having been gathered iu sepa
rate shocks the elder brother said unto
| his wife, “ My younger brother is unable
| to bear the burden and heat of the day ;
. 1 uill at'L;V . take ul my.shocks and place
I With hi* without Ins knowledge.” The
j younger brother, being ifctu.ited by the
| same benevolent motives, said within liim
| self, “ My elder brother uas a family, and
I have none: I will contribute to their
; .support ; I will arise, take of my shocks
aud place with his, without his knowledge.”
I Judge of their mutual astonishment, when,
| on the following morning, they found their
! respective shocks uudlininished. Tins
course of events transpired for several
nights, when each resolved in his own mind
to stand on guard and solve the mystery.

It is said that while at a public dinner on
a certain time, a gentleman who sat oppo

“ Mr. Moody there is a fly on the end

In agriculture, us m other matters, we are

We are led to make the e remarks by
a letter in the South Countryman, writ
ten by the Uev. H. Best, ot Cass eouti
ty, (jin , au inteiligeut gent.email, who
alter suuic years ot tunning experience in
one ot tno li.iest portions of lUaryniud,
has made a large purchase iu the loniier
State, and is, we nave no doubt, reaping
‘he adianltigo of uis early experience, and
giving ti.ose about him tiie benetit both of
| wise counsel aud guou example iu the way
|of improvement. Mr. Best tells of the
extraordinary i note use iu value of lauds in
Maryland by the mere use ot clover and
plaster; ot farms which twenty live years
I ago could he bought for ten and twelve
JihQls.being worth now, fifty, sixty and
1 eighty “dollars'per acre, and tally worth
1 the ditt,nonce, estnnatiug by the increase
| of product; fifty bushels ot corn per acre
mi lailow, are by no means extraordinary
| crops. Tiie same may be said of other
sections where lime has been the only ex
traneous matter added ; Mr. Best relates
! Ins own experience in the use of Mexican
Cruaiio and its . xtra irdiuary results; the
marvellous effects of Feruviau (jl'uuuo is
I even more familiar; wo have soon a ten
fold mi reuse of crop from a single dressing,
snowing alt the did renoo between almost
absolute sterility anil tno highest degree
!of fertility. Now what we wish to point
: out is the absurdity oi speaking of such
I lands as “won,-out, ’ ad the lolly of using
a term which conveys a very erroneous
idea. Take the ease of the land im
i proved by the use ot plaster ami clover,
ii re is nothing whatever added hut a
oasliel of sulphate of lime *o the acre, for
iow successive years, and the ni-un
i.- the difference between six or seven
i hundred und thirty bushels of wheat,
i and fifteen aud fifty bushels of corn, and
ail the difference between no grass at all
alio one and a half tons of clover. Then
where does the clover come from; surely
from a bushel of plaster. The whole mat
i ter is, that in adding what is a mere atom
j compared with the bulk of soil to which it
! is applied, we have done all that was re
’ nuued lor a very high degree of fertility;
| a thing simply impossible were the soil in
tiie least deficient or worn out, us regards
all the other essential elements of wheat
’ and corn aud other crops
The method ot improvement suggested
, by Mr. Debt is, without question, the true
one, the deeper plowing and clover grnw

[“every month iu the year, until I find out
then lit time.” I’ermuiienlimprovement
on a scale of any extent, without dei p

and the growing of clover or some goi and
