CAPTURE OF A VULTURE.
- ' j
A letter from Get, a little village on
borders of the valley d' Auto (Upper PJ
lieeV) contains the following inrerestitig de
tails : iwo mountaineers, while out sport
ing at tli e back ofthe Pak of Tremassaiig
nes, perceived flying over their heads a
vulture of enormous size ; taking advan
tage of he moment when this Ieviiithan
of the air was within shot. One ipf jhe
sportsmen discharged his gun, loaded) with
five small bullets: Tbe vulture, wounded
in the Wing.1 fell with considerable j force
lo the bottom of a ravine. Thither jibe
two men hastened to secure their captive.
The ou who had fired, pioud of his 'ex
ploit,(seeing the monsler of a bird extend
ed on arock, had the imprudence tplat
tempt to secure it whilst living, bqt the
bird furiously attacked him with hjs im
mense claws, and severely wounded the
man in his neck with his beak, and tt is-;
supposed ne must nave neen Kiueu nau u
not beep for the presence of mind and cool
intrepidity of his companion,! whoj with
the muzzle of his gun almost touching ihe
Vulture, discharged its contents in the head
of this terrible bird. The creature was
subsequently measured, and found to' be
live feet in iength, upwards Pf Vwy feet

eud of his tail ; his feathers hahdsorr e and

H?d to Bechara, who, howe ver, did not wait
iyr my question, ior ne once re an m'
desire in my obvious astonishment; "The
dromedary said he, comingto niy side,
and commencing the "story,' without" pre
face, is not 'so troublesome and impor
tanate an animal as a horse. lie contin
ues his course without stopping, without
eating, without drinking nothing about
him betrays sicknesv hunger, or exhaus
tion. , The Arab, who can hear from such
a distance! the roar of a lion, the neigh of
nj horse, or the noise of men, hears nothing
from 'his haghim, but its quickened or
lengthened respiration; it never utters a
complaint or a groan. But when nature
is vanquished. by su!fering when priva
tions havo exhausted its strength when
life is ebbing, the dromedary kneels down,
stretches out its neck, and closes its eyes.
Its master then knows all is over, "lie
dismounts, and without any attempt to
make it rise, for he knows the honesty of
jits nature,; and never suspects it ofclecep
tjon or laziness, he removes the saddle,
and places it on the back of another dro
medary, arid departs, abandoning the one
that is no longer able" to accompany him.
When night approaches, the. jackais and
I hyenas attracted by thescent, come up
and attack the animal till nothing is left
but the skeleton." -
! We are now on the highwav from Cairo

go and return by this route; and these

ttjiese pones, which, without a guide, would
lead you to tbe oasis, the wells a ud foun
tains, where the Arab finds shade and wa
ter, and would end bv conducting you to
the tomb of the prophet: these bones are
those of dromedaries which perish in the
desert. If you look attentively you will
see some j bones smaller in size, and of a
different conformation. These, too, are the
wrecks of wearied bodies that have found
repose before they reached the goal.

to! these some stupid Turk or bloated eu
nuch, who, sleeping when he ought to
have his eye open, has fallen and broken

The Secretary of War proposes to estab
lish a nev Territory, at the Eastern slope
of it he Rocky lilxuniairis, on the head wa
ters of the Matte and the Arkansas, to be
called the. territory of the Nebraska. We
believe this isthe Indian name of tbe Platte
river. This Territory would be 0:1 our
own ackbowledged soil, and would com
mand the grand pass between the Atlan-;
tic and Pacific Oceans. Near this spot
rise the lofty Peaks of the Northern Andes
around whose brows circle perpetual
snows. O.i either side roll down the wa
ters which mingle wilh Ihe Gulf of Mexi
co on this side with the Gulfof California
on the isouih-west. and with the broad
Pacific,-as it washes the Western coast cf
iThe advantages of this position, in a
military or colonial point of view are im
mense. : It would make the journey of the
emigrants West, comparitively easy.
They would have both defence and rest.
Iii case of interfence from foreign powers,
the troops of the nation would be ready to
descend either on the South, or on the Pa
cific outlets of Oregon, or move on the Bri
tish territories of the North. It is the great
central position of the North American
Continent, marked out by the God of na
ture as remarkable, by the magnificence
of its mountains, itsstreams,' and its x
tept ! Whoever possesses and brings up
fuure generations on this high, centra!
plat eau, j will be unconquerable in position
and energy. ; 'v: y'-
jThe Secretary also recommends a chain
ofl military posts on bur own Territory, ex
tending from Missouri to the Rocky moun
tains, f Against this no nation can say a
word. It is our own soil, and we must

Mr. Editor : i In passing Jhrough the

at the residence of a distinguished farmer,
of that town ; it so happened, during my
short stay, his steers which he wsts work
irtff at the time, bv some means escaped
unu unu run away. vner mucn running
and trouble, they were overtaken and
nrougnt nacsc, winch done, the. good man
verv deliberately and good naturedlv sten

several clever eaVs of corn and gave them
to eat ; at the same time patting them on
the sides, saying-i"-There Buck and Bright,
take that and that, and know better than
to run awav from me again." r The steers
seemed to forget! their skittishness at once.
and become tame and familiar. They in
dicated -as much! as to say "M ister, we

animals. What contrast this to the man
ner of some, who, instead of. forbearaTice
and kind dealing, upon every occasion of
waywardness in their horse or ox, fly at
him, cudgel in hand, and deal "death and
damnation on his defenceless head like a
very Turk f How many noble animals
have their courage broken down and ren
dered spiritless jby such brutal treatment
it is worse than brutal, for no brute ani
mal will treat his fellow so unnaturally
How many colts and steers have' been thus
spoiled in training to service ! 44 TheJner-
cifulcman is merciful to his beast."
Nor are others less culpable who leave
their eatlle,exposed to. the inclemency of
winter weather, without shelter, and a
sufficient and proper supply of food. Man,
take care of thv, beast and le kind to him
else his voice Jmav be heard in heaveii
testifying against 1 hee 1 ,

FATHER SMITH AND MA'AM JONE3.
Widolwer Smith's wagon stopped one morn
ing before widow jjoneV door, and he gave the
usual country signal, that he wanted somebody
in the house, by propping the reins and setting
double with his elbows on his knees7 Out
lripped the widoW, lively as a cricket, with a
tremendous black ribbon on her snow-white
cap. Good morning was soon said on both
sides, and the widow waited for what was fur
ther to he said, j
Well, Ma'am Jones, perhaps you don't want
to sell one of. your cows, no how, for nothing,
any way, do you 1" "
Well, there, Mr. Smith, you eouTdn't have
spoke my mind better. A poor, poor lone wid
der like me, d.es !not know what to do wilh so
many critters, and should be glad to trade if we
can fix it."
St the adjourned to the meadow. Father
Smith looked at Roan then at tbe widowsat
the Downing cow. and then at the widow again
and so on through the whole fitly. The same
call was made everyday for a week, but Farm
er Smith c uld not decide which cow he wanted.
At length on Saturday, when widow Jones was
in a hurry to get through with her baking for
Sunday and had ever so much " to do in the
House, as all farmers' wires and widows have
on Saturday, she was a little impatient. Farm
er Smith was as irresolute as ever. ..
" That 'ere Downing cow is pritty fair crea
ture" but he stopped to glance at the widow's
face, and then walkedround her not the wid.
ow but th cow. j. , r
44 That 'ere short horn Durham is not a bad
looking beast, but I dou't know " another look
at tbe widow.' i.
-V The Downing cow I knew before the late
Mr. Jones ;!xiugnt hef." Here he sigheid at the
allusion to the Jale Mr. Jones, she . sighed, and
both looked at each other. It was a highly in.'

Brindle--4ut I have known better.w' Atlong

".The intention ;of the widower Smith and the
widow Jones trero duly published the next day
as is the law; and the custom in Massachusetts ;
and as sooni as Ithey .were outpubliibcd,"-
