peculiar quiver ran through the ship.
Springing hastily on deck, I heard
the pilot abusing the helmsman in
broken English. The matter was
then quite plain. The strong lunar
current which probably gave rise to
the legend of Scylla had set into the
straits at turn of tide and was flowing
at seven knots speed through the nar

like Niagara river below the falls The

Bear Figlit In. 826.
A Bear Fight with Sixty Dogs on
From the Shelby Aurora.

before a buggy was ever sven in this

It is pleasant to sit beside an old
man, whose memories fondly linger
with the past aud hear old Mr. Mar
tin Roberts describe so picturesquely
a bear light he witnessed on Christ
mas, 1826, at Mr. Dick Blanton's, six
miles south of Shelby and now owned
by Joseph Auslelle. Mr. Dick Blan
ton had a huge pet bear which he of
ferld to barbecue on Christmas for
the crowd if the dogs of Rutherford
county could whip him in a fair fight.
This news created a sensation and
that was a gala-day at Blantou's, for
far and near, from hill and dale, they
came with many a canine of high and
low degree to the bear combat and to
eat bear meat for Christmas. Several
hundred men and women were pres
ent on the muster ground at Blantou's
X Roads, where beer, ginger cake,
and whisky were sold from the hind
gate of wagons.
At the signal of a trumpet, the huge
black and brown bear was unchained,
the exultant crowd gave way for Bru
in's stately tread, while sixty men
held sixty dogs eager for the fight.
The bear with a growl surveyed the
scene and trotted off fifty yards, then
the dogs with many yells made the
woods ring and gave chase. Many
bets were made that the bear would
be slain, and it was amusing to listen
to each man tell about his dog's
strength and bravery. A huge grey
hound caught the bear's hind leg,
whose fore paw, as heavy as Thor's
ponderous hammer, fell against the
dog's head, his tail was turned and
the greyhound fled in disgrace. A
dozen curs were soon put to flight by
the bear standing erect on his hind
One mountaineer who had imbibed
the roughness of Ben's Knob by as
sociation, bragged on his "Pete," and
said I'll bet $5 by Golly, that Pete
can whip that "bar," and Pete then
hied to the combat. The huge mas
tiff, Pete, soon seized the "bar's" tail,
but the bear turned upon his assail
ant, one blow felled Pete, who utter
ed a groan and turned his tail to the
forest in double quick time, home
As the dogs surrounded the huge
bear, panting with. anger and fatigue,
shouts of men mingled with the bark
ing of dogs for an hour. The bear,
ready for battle, mounted like one of
Scott's heroes on a knoll, stood on his
hind legs ami seemed to say to the
dogs, like Scott ;
"Come one, come all.
This rock shall fly
From its firm base as soon as I."
The other dogs soon gave up and
left the bear the victor. After oue
hour's persuasion and plenty of food,
the bear's wrath was appeased by his
keeper and was led by his chain to his
lair. As the dogs were whipped, the
bear did not furnish the barbecue for
that Christmas crowd iu 1826. Mr.
Roberts said on that day I first saw
a double-barrel shotgun (now so com
mon) and I then thought "ah maitey,
he can shoot twice at one pop, I'm
afraid of him." Some of our aged read
ers have not forgotten that bear fight
and how they lost the barbecue be
cause the dogs could not whip the
and he accepted after informing the
saints that he was a ruined man
thenceforth and forever.
The night was intensely dark. On
the horizon astern was a faint rosy
glow emitted by the far distant Stroin
beli. Forward, on our starboard bow
was a pale gleam in the clouds which
our pilot told us was the reflection of
the lights of Messina. The atmos
phere was close ami heavy, not a breath
of air stirred. The dark, indistinct
form of land loomed up on all sides.
We eemed hemmed in by mountains
without the siarn of an outlet. Had I
not learned by previous Experience
that there was such a jfie as the
Straits of Messina,-and had not Im
ray's charts, and the pilot persisted in
maintaining that they still existed, I
might have been excused for feeling
a little sliaky about venturing further
into that mysterious gloom. However,
as one is sometimes called upon to
place one's faith on things unseen
even in matters maritime, and finally,
as several huge steamers were plow
ing full speed into the durkuess, I
concluded to abandon all to the pilot
and providence and went "below."
Our vessel was drifting along "a bell
aggio" at a rate which the pilot said
would not take us to Faro Voint be-
lore 2 a. in. Just here my
thoughts turn to a July afternoon
right years ago, when I was steaming
through these very straits. I can al
most hear again the strains of "Home,
Sweet Ho as they were wafted to
us that day from the band on the deck
of the V.'ti.. steam ship Franklin,
steaming majestically by our side5.
Ah, where are ships and shipmates of
those long gone days ! The noble old
"Franklin" having survived the ex
citement of a mutiny at Leghorn, and
tlie honor of lugging the patriotic

gouty heroes home to add to the uoisv
