an adventure- soon after lielel me, which niude me
tmialy change my opinion of their veracity, and
convinced nio that their account rather fell short
of than exceeded tho truth. Occasionally, when
prcKviog business detained Mr. Ilcinvault at hi
plantation, or callod nun to n uistanco, and when 1
f 'lxidtimc hang heavy upon my hands, Cajsar was
always willing to volunteer his sor vices at my
guide and assistant in any ramble which I wished
to undertake j and a clever and activa fellow I
indeed found him, lie wat a capital shot, and
unequalled in the success with which he contrived
to hook his fish when not one would look at the
bait belonging to another.
One day, about two or three weeks aflcr'my
- arrival, Mr. Ileinvault informed mo that he was
under the necessity ot going to a plantation distant
about ten miles, and a tho way lay partly through
the woods, and trackless savannahs, be wss obliged
to take i'lcwr with him, he being the onlv one on
the estate who ha J a thorough knowledge of tho
way, and who, from hit dexterity and address,
proved a useful and agreeable attendant, lie ad'
ded, that ho should be back early the afternoon!
and that if I wUhcd to take a stroll, or go on the
water, any oi iito rest oi ma people should be at
my disposal. After Mr. IK-invaull had rode away,
I at rolled about tho plantation an hour or two,
looking nt every thing to amuse myself but get
ting terribly wearied with 'doing nothing, I told
one of the coplo to get the liues ready, for it was
my intuition to go out a fishing for somo time, tho
day being rather warm tnd sultry fur enjoying i

like we sent for my gun, and declining the oiler

the spot where my adventure hud happened. The
small part of the bank not covered with reeds,

wound the animal had received could not have
been slight. Exactly opposite this, the reeds were
crushed end broken, ami a sort of passage was
formed among them to wide, that a man could
with littlo dilliculty enter. Mr. Ilcinvault com.
manded a halt, to tee that the arms were in proper
order. All being right, we listened attentively i"
order to hear if there was any noise which might
direct us to our enemy. aminu- however, wail

up and down thi, trying to get a shot at some of
the bcuuiiful birds which often frequent these la
goons. But the birds weru scarce and shy. Fa
tigued with this unsuccessful sport, 1 set the linos,
and paddled about for some tune, 1 drew them up;
but whether ihey had not been bailed as well as
CiCMr uicd to do it, or whether tho fish were at

trials I got tired o, this sport likewise Thinking
I would lie moru success!-! riewhere I proceeded
tib nit a quarter of a nnlo farther lown, and set the
lines. By this timo the day had become exceed
ingly sultry and oppressive. . Seeing there was no
pr Mpcct tf a shot, 1 took oil my stockings and
shoes, and bathed my X'-ct in tho water, and, work,
ing my canoe to the other side, 1 laid my gun
ready loaded lor a shot upon the benches, and

time lo draw Ihe lines which 1 had set. In this
piMition 1 fell asleep, overcome, at 1 suppose by
the heal of tho day, mid Iho fatigue 1 baa under

1 know not how long I may iiavo slept ; but 1
mat. Mr. Ilcinvault ordered him behind, and,
udvanciiig alomi wiih me, -we saw thn ugh the
rcedt purl of the body of the monster coiled up and
part of it stretched out j but owing to their thick
ness itt head was invisible. Disiuibcd, nnd op.
parcntly irritated by our approach, it appenred i
from it movements, about to turn and assail u. j
We had our gun ready, nr.d just as wo caught a ;
glimpse of his head, wo fired, both of us almofl at
the same moment. From tbo obstructions of the
reed, all our shot could not have taken effect ; but
what did take cOuct, seemed to bo sufficient ; tor j!
fell, hissing, and rolling itscla. into a variety ol
contortions. Even yet it wal dangerous to op-
roach it. Bui fiemr, who seemed to possess a
greofdeut of coolness and audacity, motioning his
master nnd mo not to fire again in the direction i f
the animal, forced a way through the reeds at
one aide, and, making a kind of circuit, camo in
before it, and succeeded in hitting it a violent
blow, which completely stunned it ; and a lew
repetitions of this gave us tho victory. We could
now examine the creature with safo y. We found
