As I before stated, the hut stood close to the stream, and from the rear the bank sloped abruptly to wards the water. The American for the first time seemed affected. When the men fell uuder our shots, there whs not the slightest change percep tible in his voice; but the few words he fcpoke to his dog were broken aud singularly soft. I'll be sworn there were tears in the man's eyes. Every thing beiug at last prepared, he spat upon tho dog's muzzle, held his head close to his cheek for a moiiint or two, and theu pressed him quickly out of the hole and away down the shelviug bank. We listened anxiously for a time, andtheD there arose a wild jabbering for a minute, the next instant we de tected a yelp of pain. 'My God said I, involuntarily, 'the Doctor's speared."

The American's sortie, I believe, ! hd rather a disastrous eflect, for the black feilows seemed to conclude at once that our amuuition was all ex- peaded, and they thronged round the hut without caring to shelter themselves. j In a short time the crackling of I flames on the roof put an end to our ! trouble. The hut was on fire, aud there was nothing left for us but an attempt to dash out and clear the aborigines. I proposed this, but Mr. S would not try without Mat, and underneath the blazing roof, with clubbed guns, we grimly awaited the final attack. The American's rifle rested iu the loophole where he had first taken zp his position, There's the worst of them," Ma said looking along his weapon; he's coming up with a log to stave the door.

The Republican party has departed so far from the true Constitutional paths of the fathers that they are ut terly incapable of even understanding what those principles are that give safety to the citizen, perpetuity to ci vil freedom, and local self govern ment to the States. In France, in the last century,they talked of liberty J 1 i 1 S Tfc w;nen tne streets 01 iraris were run- mng with blood, and the most cruel ana remorseless tyrants were wreax- uig weir vengeance upon uuo nuy hated. So now, in this land of the upon those they free, the Radicals prate of a pure bal- lot when thev are constantly, pertin - acionsly, deliberately corrupting it;' and tlk of liberty and law flippantly and eloquently, when they are des- j troying the one and trampling the : other under their remorseless feet. OCTOBER 21. 18S0. A Productive County. Rev. Dr. Pritchard in a recent let ter to the Biblical Recorder thus speaks of Mitchell county : "I have been in twenty two States of the Union and have seen no where a county in which a bv ng can be made so easily a3 in Mitchell county. I have been in Buncombe, Madison Henderson, Wilkes, Burke, McDow ell and other mountain counties of North Carolina. I have also travel ad through the mountainous sections Virginia Maryland and Pennsylvania, and I am veiy sure 1 have never seen so fine a mountain region as the coun ty affords. The soil is marveDoulv rich, and I would want no better fer tilizer for many of the eastern farms than the natural soil of this county ; even the very tops of the mountains are as rich as the alluvial deposits of Red River or the Tr nity or Brazos bottom of Texas. I s.nv lands on which had been grown, I was told, fifty bushels of corn to the acre, cul tivated exclusively with the hoe. Bro J. W. Ayers, who has a fine farm on the Roan Mountain, has said that he can pick out ten acres of his land, and if a man will cultivate it as he prescribes, without a pound of fertili zer, and he does not make a thousand bushels of corn on the ten acres, he will give the lands. And there is water Avrvvrrlinvi . if reallv somnd in math t tliemore water I found branches, creeks or small rivers are to be found every few hundred yards, and fine na tive grasses, affording good pastur - age and abundant.

Bees. Any one in the country, however limited his space, can keep bees at a ccn nderable profit, for it must be re collected that they have the whole re gion round theui to roam il and free ly forage for honey, no matter to whom the lands belonj;. Thus those who possess the fewest acres are just as well off for be i pasture as those who possess th e most. Think of the hundreds of fruit trees within a circuit of a few miles around nearly every one's habitation, whose uuinftio is early spring blossoms in vite all the bees of the neighborhood to come and s-p their nectar freely - 1 ill i rw.. miu wuiiom price, men, there are thousaOds of wild flowers ; and soon following, millions of white and red clover heads ; the blossoms of grain, of peas, of beans, and other things during the summer, which ihe eye of man dons not note, but the acuter one of the bees does. Then in autumn there are fields of buckwheat, and wild flowers still lin ger in abundance. What treasures all these combined are for this highly intelligent and ceaselessly laboring li: tie insect to4draw from for the gratifi tion and sustenance of man, the sweet treasures of all of which except for these busy little creatures would go to watite. As soon as cold weather has set in, nives oan be safely removed at any i reasonable distance. Let everv one Jvho ls destitute, possess one at , of ,,se' and as many more a Vau, be wel1 attended to.
