The beautiful specimen of rattlesnake
ir rrotcdus, kindly furnished to Clarke
oc Morgan by Mr. T. P. McGinn, of this
city, mentioned erroneously in your last
issue as presented by Mr. W. R. Bell,
was by Mr. T. P. Clarke prepared and
tastefully mounted, and will be found
in the collection of the New Berne Asso
ciation at the State Exposition which

Thus reptile, which was killed without
Iicmilt mangled, comes from Jones
couiiiv. near Trenton, and ih four feet,
nine inches l.m, and eight and a half
incite.- in Kirtii. having eight rattles,
and consequently is eleven years old.
li u as a m ile. He had three fangs, a
i;.;;.:e i ne. iibout half an inch
ntr and
two Mitallcr ones on each side.
In dis
e; ti!.i,' hint it was found that his ears
ire I n't ween the nose and the eye. On
re. .loving the skin it is seen "that the
bodv is cleft longitudinally from the
threat to the anus, the cavity being held
together by a threadlike filiment from
the ribs on either side, and that the
i 1 1 . have a joint near the vertebrae.
which eimuies mm to move tne oanas
on his belly when he moves forward.
The serpent cannot move tail foremost.
The venom lies in a sack at the root of
the foremost or principal fangs, which
are curved and hollow; these are raised
when the snake strikes, and when he
hits the concussion forces the venom
through the hollow of the tooth to the
point and into-the wound. The lesset
fangs, in rear of the first, seem to be
substitutes as a reserve in case the first
are lost, as often happens. The side
jaw teeth are like those of a cat.
There was no appearance of fat on the
flesh such ns animals show, but it was
full of oil which exuded freely. An
ancient African promptly preferred a
request for the carcass, which will be
delivered to him that he may '"try" out
the oil, which is in great request as a
specific in 'Tumatiz. "'
The venom of the rattlesnake tastes
and smells like an irritated wasp smells.
The small quantity of blood, seemingly
not more than a table spoon full, was
observable. Tho arrangement of the in
testines is very simple: a long gullet,
then ths viscera, and then a long ali
mentary canal. The jaw-bone is not
joined in front, which allows great dis
i v"uu w cuaure ii iu lane luurgoprey,
i while the skm on the throat is flabby,
j allowing the passages of a much larger
ammal, such as a squirrel or bird, than
it would be supposed that the snake
could swallow.
Some years since one of the most
prominent physicians while visiting a
zoological exhibition in the city of New
York was bitten by a crotalns. and
though lie had promptly the aid of the
most distinguished of his brethren of the
faculty, be died, while there are men in
the mouiittuns of UForth Carolina, who
for a drink of whiskey will allow the
snake to bite them, without expe
riencing any- injurious effects from the
bite, and I might add nor from the
whiskey, though my information as to
that is not so exact. I am told that
powdered charcoal and hog 's-lard ap
plied as a salve is the remedy used by
these men. H. Bosser.
P. S. I omitted to mention the very
small quantity of brains found ia the
snakes head. The serpetit, among the
ancients, was renuied very wise, and in
the F-syptiaa hieroglyphics, the figure
cf a serpent is the emblem of wisdam.
The brain cavity in this subject did not
measure more than the eight of an inch.
Our Lord Je6U3 Christ exhorts us to
be "Wise as serpents, and gentle as
doves.' Cowper paraphrases it thus:
"That thou mayest injure no man, dove-
like be.
And serpent-like, that Q Kian injure

Moses and the Lamb, saying "Great

Rev. Mr. Fontaine informed me that
on one occasion while out gunning, ac
companied by the gon. of one of his
parishioners, the lad was bitten bv a
rattlesnake, on the instep. Mr. F. killed
the snake so there could be no mistake
as to the species. He then sucked the
wound twice. The boy was perfectly
well in two days. Mr. F. says that the
taste of the poison was like the smell of
un irritated wasp or bee. Mr. Clarke
distinguished this very plainly on dis
secting the head of the reptile described
i heretofore. The membrane of Mr. F,
- ,IIUUU. nose, auu eyi?s was considerably
allected by the venom, and bo did not
entirely recover from the effects for
nearly a year. In roy case I sucked my
son's wound twice, with impunity. The
draught had no taste except that of
blood. I know that the serpent was a
cotton-mouth for he sank his fangs so
deeply into the outer part of the Dalm
of the boy's hand that I had to caich the
snake by the back of the neck with the
thumb and forefinger to extricate him.
My son is now thirty years of age, and
the wound was reoeived more than
twenty years since, and still the cicatrice

If you want to know anything more
of the rrotalus you should go to the Ex

calogy, from the Greek word toxon a
bow, because the ancients poisoned
their arrows. I have frequently been
told by frontiersmen that the Indians
will catch rattlesnakes and then throw
before them the fresh liver of a deer',
and by irritating the snakes they will
bite it. This is taken and dried and
will retiin its virtue for years. An

Alexander Hawkins, a very healthy
young man aged about 24 years, died
very suddenly of congestion of the brain
at his home near Trenton, oil Wednes
day the 24th of September, leaving an
aged father, brothers and , many rela-,
tives and friends to mount their irrepa-'
rable loss.
Died, near Trenton, m Wednesday
the 24th of September, Mr. David Jones,
an excellent citizen. His disease was
bowel consumption. He was quite an
old man, near 70 years old, tad leaves
several children and grandchildren, to
gether with many relatives and nume
rous friends, to mourn his death.
The Rcpubjioan delegates assembled
at Trenton the night previous to thsir
c&nvention of the 24th. and with them
arrived also I. B. Abbott and Palmer,
colored, of New Berne, and a short time
after in rolled Sheriff Davis and W.
Dunn of Kinston. Rumors were rif
among several that these gentlemen had
been summoned to heal all the trouble
of the party and cause things to continue
in peace and harmony as in the days of
the past. These rumors were in a short
time varUied by one of the delegates
sho.uting for everybody to adjourn to
the court house as some good speakers
from Kinston and New Berne were go
ing to address them. After going to the
court house, Abbott, who is none of
your little guns, made them a speech
which was quite a creditable one save
the politics. So did Palmer. After
they concluded one of the Kinston ora
tors arose and delivered a mighty
speech, one tlat will be long romein

On the morrow caucusing again com
menced and lasted till the fatal hour ar
rived to assemble in convention. Hoses
Green, colored, was made chairman and
Noah Hill, colored, was made secre
tary. The townships were called, when
every one that answered to his name
from every township was a solored del
egate, except Trenton; she had been
honored by one white delegate, Calvin ;
On (notion, it was resolved that the

Bryan, coroner; Oapt. U. 11 roy, sur
veyor, all whits, and H. D. Strayhorn,
colored, for representative. At the an
nouncement of this a long shout went
up and the crowd seemed wild with joy.
One old darkey through his excitement
exclaimed, '"Bless God, we have got
just wfcat we have been praying for for
the last sixteen years, and we gwine to
kcthim too, sure fact, a colored man."
Congressman O'Hara wan present
during the convention and addressed
them, urging them to forget every hard
feeling and unite their party and select
good men to fill the ofijeea. He urged
them to pile their votea every one for
their county memUBr, and U swell the
Senatorial ve4e in their county all they
couid. r.o they could help defeat our
Se.nnwr in this district. For, continued
he, Zeb. Vance is our worst enemy and
his place is to be tilled during the next
Legislature, and the election of a Hc-
publican U. S. Senator may be secured

The convention taken altogether ill
