through his head from Erick, who was
prepared for him. 'Now, sir,' said he,

' A piece of string I' cried his master,

'Why,- sir, said he, ' wolves, like cow

to thi stMik and let it drag bebiud the
carriage. "It will keep them off ten min

ed along, about the- distance, pt ten yards
behind, and for some time the pack kept
behind it, and were plainly afraid of it.
At last they began to grow bolder, they
seemed to have discovered the trick, aud
passed the stick, and were again making
up to the-carnagc,

hut you will want all your pistols soon.'
After they had fired once or twice, the
wolveswere no longer frightened by Jbej
fire and flash : and thev began to sur
round the coach on every side.
Tliere is but one thing left,' said Erick,
' we must cut the (races of one of the lea
ders and turn him off that will divert
them for a little while, and turning to the
of hi horse.' Tho- man obeved, the terri

read in the proceedings of the Senate on

it knew that the Senators, '(or one of them,)

oughly exposed at the extra session in
March last, when it was abundantly shown
by Democratic testimony, that our Sena
tors, and particularly Mr. Badger, did all
that war done, and that if the "talented
and atten ti ve" could have effected 4s much
in his House, this most just and necessary
appropriation would have been granted.
Well, now here is the bill again : pre
sented to the Senate without a Report of
