But no sprite Ever so Demon like could be More hideously formed to cast terror into the souls of tho of hid Audi Enoe at Holiday time than was tho apparition which so suddenly burst upon the full grown. Beholders on this memorable morning it was n living Man in tight a handkerchief tied round his Waist arid a close cloth Cap on his head but smeared with blood from Crown to Bole even his face and As he laughed and showed his White Teeth and twinkling eyes through the gory streaks nothing could be More appalling. Every one of the strangers startled and shrank Back. A a done to be feared gentlemen it Isnit a murther i committed. Its Only myself that a in it. Goroon at your Savioe my lord and Long life to you just dressed out to show sport to your honors. Done to you know me sir Jeffery a a. A a this is a sorry sight a said Jack Mande Ville with a stage a a out damned spot 1�?� extending his hands towards god Roon As if he would push him Back to tho door he Omo god fro Rii. This hit of theatrical fun brought tho rest of us somewhat to ourselves and the scone revolting is it was it first began Evory minute to have something exciting in it As the Squire explained that it was a run with the blood hours he was about to treat us to and that Goroon was the Quarry they were to follow. A a but Good god is there no danger of their catching bin a asked some Ono. A a of not the least to is used to it a said the Squire. A a so Are the cels a remarked another a a of never fear there is neither Firo nor frying in quest Tion. Are you quite ready Goroon a a in tirely so sir Quot replied a a the drag Quot with an alacrity that was reassuring. A a then take your pole and take care yourself and god Speed you 1&Quot Exon aimed the Squire in accents actually solemn. And As Goroon flourished his leaping Polo and oat a few map prs out in the court before the House his mas Beer added Quot mind your Steps run steadily and look before you leap no shouting nor screaming at the dogs hold your breath Well in mind what i say to you a a i will your Honor what Low Are you giving me a a Twenty a Thurra 1&Quot oried Goroon. _ a a you la want it All. Tub Beraro bog is a mile off and the Rath is a Quarter beyond that. You know you Are Safe among the Elm Trees there a a it a not straight there i m going sir i must show your Honor and the gift Limeri better sport than that. Ill give a Oast into tho Ould Plantation . A a Well away with you and once More god Speed you Quot said tho Squire and the Blessing was echoed by Overy one of the household who nil looked anxious though highly delighted As if there was something very serious in the a a sports All were preparing for. Goroon leaped lightly Over the Fosse by the Aid of his pole and flourishing it in the style of a dram major mar Whitig. At tho head of a Reg meat he started to Ayas fearless and buoyant As if he was Only going out for a Little Trot with the beagles. The servants too brought Forth tho boots and Hunting Rooks worn by the visitors the Day before and while we equipped ourselves by order of the Squire alow door in the Corner of the court was opened and the Kennel displayed in which the blood hounds were lodged. A a out with the beauties a oried tho Squire in a triumphant tone As the grooms and helpers brought Forward the dogs twelve in Nuin ber All strictly soup Loup and All bounding and leaping with a Force that put to the test the whole strength and management of the men who held them in lash. A a there they Are look at them what do you think of them a exclaimed tho Squire his face beaming with proud Delight. Andr All the party did look at and examine them carefully but with a shuddering feeling As they growled and bellowed in horse deep mouthed tones As soon As they caught the scent of the blood that had been Here and there dripped from god Roony a clothes or been left on the gravel by foot prints. As Well As i can now Trace the impression made on me by these terrible animals they appeared unlike any others even of the Motley collection of tho Squiros Ordinary or regular pack before described they were like the others of various colors Blok red yellow Brindle and spotted hut pretty nearly of the same size they seemed to stand about five and Twenty inches High and perhaps forty in length with head breast fire legs and shoulders like a Light made mastiff spout larger ears erect like a greyhound j and loins croup haunches and Tail also of greyhounds shape Only thicker Sot tho combination indicating great nerve strength and agility. As Thoy strove to escape from the muscular men who held them their eyes flashed they actually roared with rage and twisted like serpents while the men lashed them severely with heavy thronged whips they became quite frantic with impatience and several of Thorn turned to bite or tear the hands that curbed them. The Squire seemed boiling with fierce ardor. He held his watch in his hand his eyes straining As he counted the minutes and at last he exclaimed. A a the Quarter of an hour is passed now mount whoever Means to follow me. Lead on the we All sprang into our saddles lib was As usual lifted into his. No one but he spoke a single word. A. There Yas an air of compressed exit Mont in every face around to and i have no doubt every Tramo thrilled nervously with a feeling Akin to terror which All strove to conceal. We were embarked Ipri fearful adventure. But being in for it and prepared by the nights proceedings we dashed on like men Rushing to a breach or charging a Battery. A a time a a 110.�?� hollowed Ali e Squire. At the very Toff of his now sort Arit Irig voice a a Loose the couple there on a the scent. Hark Forward away in no sooner said than done every Collar was a clasped. The dogs like a Herd of wild beasts a indeed they wore but such sprang through tho wide open Gate with a concentrated yell that made us shudder. The horses plunged and reared As 4j maddened with affright. But we were All a dogs horses than put on our Mettle and were soon Iii the open Fields arid at full Speed on our headlong Chase. Never in All my experience before or. Since did i witness suon a tremendous burst As that Nover saw anything like the Pace never Felt anything like the sensation. Away we went men and beasts. The dogs ran shoulder to shoulder not a foot of space dividing one from the rest. They required no guid Anoe or control. They were never q moment at fault. They wore in full cry from first to last. Tho Riding was Tori fic but splendid. The most torpid pulse the most sluggish blood would Havo throbbed and boiled to have witnessed not to say shared in such a scene. We were eleven in All All Cap itally mounted for our several weights every Man was Well horsed Ivory horse Well manned. The Field was prime and the game a where and what is it ? i verily believe shocking As it is to say it that in two minutes from tho Start no Ono thought of that until tho first Check brought us a Little to our senses. Within less than a mile of the House after having cleared some desperate leaps we came to a Trout Stream not wide and easy Banks. A moments pause took place. Goroon had evidently crossed safely but was not to to seen beyond. Everybody looked Forward towards the path _ a Weed covered Mound with a few straggling Elm Trees on the top. The dogs seemed for an instant puzzled and both master and men Exchange de words of Surprise and anxiety for it was slain that the too daring a a drag had not taken the direct course for the shelter designated for him by the Squire but had deviated the right or left beyond the water to give eyes fixed while we Rodo on As the blood red figure of Goroon straddle legged on the Branch which moved flexibly up and Down at his motion and seemed to keep time with the chorus of tho Park. Suddenly we were shoo Kod on seeing tho Branch snap and break right across Between the trunk of the tree and Goroon and Down he fell to the ground and rolled bodily Over the other Side of the path being instantly lost to out View. What cared blood hounds View or no View was All tho same to them. They like sailors steering by the Needle had unerring seen of their. Unseen victim on grass and brambly Weed and Shrub and Onward they went always in deep full Ory. And on we pushed with whip and Spur Atour horses utmost Speed to gain the top of the path and Cross it in Good time if possible to save tho poor fellow before his Savago pursuers could cons mate his now almost apparent Dojiri. The dogs wore first on the Summit and still pounds for Vou Sham rib if you speak truth a said he a a it a True enough 1�?� exclaimed item Ravan with less agitation. A a he a moving 1�?� Quot ton pounds for Yori. Kee Ravan for the nows. Stand Back boys give him air. Yes god be thanked he a still alive a a alive a echoed every voice and Evory heart throbbed wildly at the. Word. And it was indeed so. And a sweetly that i cannot Bear to have Thorn go _ a i never thought about its being their Homes before a he said a a but i wont take Mem if you done to wont to and to looked pleasantly at miss Maynard for Hor kind words had touched his heart. I done to Lam sure a she answered a and recovery was,�nd�8putableandmngicallyquick. Now Tell me Liat your Namo is he n 1 j rom at Leta 1�<tn la a a j a ii Gil a 11 _ a 1 t a 1 y Iii Ita a a a the wild opening of the lids the wondering and still Foar stricken gaze tho nervous motion of tho lips the half Oli oked utter Rico of the first words the spasmodic flinging up of the arms the can spot hands the upturned eyes a what a picture for the memory to dwell on i How Long did this awful Man Hunt with blood hounds inst ? what time was consumed from the Start until what was so near being the death a in know not. no doubt in the run hit Well i recollect that tho fearful Oon so appeared at the time of though it had bran an ago. And now rolling in fearful Harmony they seemed to Trao Zilg it Here i air Ridly and with a flying drop Over in a compact mass to the far off Side of the Mound before Fri could gain the top. What a terrible few minutes of suspense it Wab and with what trend to strained our Oyes Forward when we got fairly up excepting to see the blood hounds tearing the mangled body of what to now Foletto be our victim As Well As that the ferocious beasts. Great and inc Scribaylo was our Joy i am sure to All Felt alike to Mark the Crimson fugitive bounding along still Hundred of Yards in Advance but every action showed that he was now running for his life with almost super human Speed.\. To the right and loft and before him there was not a Vestigo of shelter to a soon a Bleak common covered with Light grass Here and pen it passes at once before me like a lightning Flash. Two were soon housed at Enock Dorrigo and groveling in the Delight of warm Baths dry cloth Chi. Roaring tires Grid Sulci a breakfast i nature would assert its rights and appetite Camo Widly Back for a its we All Felt that we had passed through a great exploit nothing heroic in it hut a feat perhaps without a parallel. And it was so Beautiful to Seo poor resuscitated Goroon so poorly sacrificed for our mad pleasure clean washed Well dressed smiling languidly arid kindly a i might say forgiving by on us though we had not in our revelry.meant-, him any harm a that i think after Oil the scone was wort i going through remembering arid ree Ordin there a tuft of rank Large a look when hunger was appeased. And every duty of Stone As if thrown at random about Suc performed to the chios Factor and Tjie sub or Wos the dreary and despairing p aspect linage attendants by a not ungenerous sub poor Goroon seemed to feel the horror of his situation for his head was a frequently turned Back to measure no doubt tho decreasing distance Between him and us to was going straight in tho direction of Lieven Ambraz the Only object rising from the Wido spread Plain and offering the Only possible Chanel of escape could he hold his breath arid keep up the rapid Page for a Xii be or further. Tho horses scrambled with Groat difficulty through tho scattered blocks and Over the Many crevices which now broke the ground. There were two of three heavy Falls of beasts anal men. The dogs gained on us every moment script Iori either in Cash or in promises sure to be fulfilled the ski Tirc in his most impressive manner address of us. A gentlemen a said lie with Somo few other phrases which i forget a we have escaped a great crime. Had tha poor fellow perished i had been assuredly a murderer and All of you by Ray instigation accessories in tho fact. I done to know to v the Law might Havo dealt with us for though Liore was no malice pre Pense Thoro was certainly Folly aforethought and Many a violation of right is committed under the excuse of want of reflection. However it is Over and to have had a Groat ?di4 our Best to keep steady hand air al Cape. Only one not of Justice and propriety hold our horses Well up and a a the fold a now i end humanity remains to by fulfilled. I am reduced to seven formed n gloomy contrast i sure you All diabolical dogs that in their silent anxiety to the bounding owns a strange infatuation Majde to import from the Timity of spirit with which men follow hounds i West indies to Lead you. And to into Aro Hunting natural Gamo. A a couple of r Tion. Done to you hate1 Thorn a Adlemen Haros sprang rip before the dogs. To hoped Dous chorus of a Yos i All 1 All a followed the this might have turned them Asido changing j miestidn., Quot they Are no Nso on tho face of the scent. They never seemed to head them this Earth a continued the squirt. A tho Moro than a Well bred setter would heed a Money they Cost to for a Moro whim has Boon a a a n 40 a. Additional time for Quot the sport a As he said he would. Looking round me i saw a ride less horse galloping about. I had no Tinio to ask for the owner for one of tho leading dogs either sniffing the scent across the Stream or following some instinct awfully like reason which told that the Quot blood stained feet must have passed to the other Side dashed into the water followed by All tho others arid they were in a minute on the opposite Bank again in full cry. We All had a fair Start and alar a majority went cleverly Over. The Squiros Hoise seemed to go on invisible Wrogg so beautifully did tho rider lift him through tho air. I turned found my head and saw two of our party splashing in the water. Who were they ? what matter ? a a hark Forward i Quot and away to went into a rather think copse on the right. A a heavens 1�?� oried some one should the poor fellow have stumbled and fallen into the tangled Oover a a frightful Hanoe for to would have surely been torn to pieces before could us have come close up with the blood hounds. But we struggled through tho dogs invisible in the Brushwood but their music loading us on while they doubled and seemed baffled in the intricate Covert Goroon had gallantly worked his Way through it gaining Timo by Many turns Liko a close pressed Hare and we All gave a shout of Joy and encouragement As we marked him through an opening at on easy Canter on the rising ground leading up to wares to 0 path. He out some frolicsome papers looked quite fresh and at ease with himself like a Man who had done his work Well and he quietly stopped on towards the path where he paused looked round him and than de Liberty Quimod into a treo prepared to Survey arid enjoy the Progress of the Hunt and the performances oftho"hunt8men. A a he Sall right a a a a sate and sound a a thank god in and other exclamations of satisfaction broke from several As w e got Well out of the Thi Okot and galloped on after the dog now flying desperately close on the scoria again and ruining Jiko the wind. I and Rill Tye rest had our Lork with a pack of grouse or a running Covey of partridges Blore him. Our dogs required a higher flavor. Blood blood their Only instinct. A to lost . Rising the rugged base of the Mountain the dogs closing last on him and to Iii it Tiv despair of pushing orig horses up through the crags in anything like time to drive Torii off a i Ion la do it la to witches treo will save him 1�?� said the Squire to Kee Savaii in a confident tone. A a Tiow will the Craft Are Over climb the trunk without a screed of bark on it a asked the Huntsman with a gloomy look. A a he la scramble up life is Sweet and strength and activity can do anything a replied the Squire As we still worked our Way. A but Ali e moaning of these observations was lost on me for i had never than Sheri tho locality i do scribed in my opening the next change in the Scono was Godro Oiin a gaining tho Summit and Rushing Over it and out of our sight without a Momont spans. A a this Way. Your Honor this Way a shouted Shamus Bawn beckoning with his whip towards a Patch of Green award running like a narrow ribbon up the Rocky pass and allowing us to Gallop Ono by one with rather greater Speed than tho dogs who followed steadily god Roony a windings through the obstructing rags. Had to discovered the smoother path which tho Whipper in struck upon they would Havo infallibly of unlit him up even before Thoy did on Aioli easy ground. We gained the Summit and it a couple of Hundred Yards distance caught a View of the Lake the blasted tree and Goroon making fruitless efforts to Olimb to the overhanging branches. There was not a notch or knot or thelast projecting thing to give place for even one foot to rest on and he Only slipped Down gain and Agni i after every attempt to cling o the worn. And wasted trunk. We were now All horses men and dogs Pell Mell together Rushing it full Speed towards him the blood hounds roaring with incredible fury having tho victim almost in their fangs we All slighting to him a the water the water plunge in plunge in 1 a Quot of god he Ennst swim a stroke a exclaimed the Squire in agony. Arid to All in this supreme moment dashed among tho dogs striving to Rido them Down or Batter them to death with our Hammer handled whips. They were actually on him. He turned round and round bewildered and giving himself up for was a frightful eyes closed and Whon they opened again convulsively i saw tho desperate wretch with maniac bound fling himself into the Lake. In an instant every Ono of the in various dogs not disabled by our blows leaped in after him a and riders and horses All were As quickly in the Waves into which the commotion lashed the liquid depth i cannot now accurately for i did not then of Early comprehend tho. Final close of this drama. Reason was in abeyance every one acted upon impulse. It All tended one Way to recover tho body before the hideous animals Tore it limb from limb. The efforts of some or All i know not How it was were successful. Tho dogs were beaten and baffled and forced to Loose hold of the prey they no doubt thought they had earned a right to devour. The dripping form of tho disfigured a drag a tho gory stains half washed from tho clothes was lifted up on tho horse of the Whipper in who hold it nearly upright before the Saddle. Quot we urged on our animals to a fast walk looks of Awe on every Foco and not n Wurfl it stored by any one w o made our Way to the narrow path by which we had there Revor was a Itoro he crop st Tiok Procos Sion tho water streaming Down front oath Man and tho blood curdling in Ivory towards tho Baso of the Mountain we Ware met by several of tho Stablo Rind Honnol men with a Light Oart carrying tho leather couplings chains and muzzles of the odious dogs who now sneaked Rosido or after us crestfallen hungry und vindictive their blood shot eyes and an occasional dismal growl speaking their angry discontent. A halt was commanded by tho Guiro. Skamris and one of tho now Comoros lifted the seris loss form a harrowing sight from the Lionso in tho cart.

Hanson or the worst boy in school. A a Bill Hanson a Asho was called was the worst boy in school and in fact in tho Wlizlo town so his teacher said and not a Day passed but that she found something for which to punish him. The last Day of school had come and Bill declared lie never would enter the school House again and wont Home muttering throats against his teacher and everybody else. But Bill was nut a bad boy at heart As my readers will soon see. For a number of years past tho so ool had been kept by a lady Whoso Mode of teaching was rather antiquated and who believed with Solomon a a that sparing tho Rod spoils the child a and As Sho was not thought very highly of by either old or Young it was proposed to Mako a Chango tho following term. But it made no diff Ronca with Bill a for a said he a a they Are All alike and no matter How hard a follow tries to mind Thoy will find something to Ferolo him for. So he passed the vacation of usual cutting Capers and troubling the neighbors in general.

In this Farewell address Many lessons of Wisdom Are Given for our future Rind notion and Many of the dangers Rind hazards of the now government Are pointed out and we Are More earnestly Besought to avoid them. Prominent amongst them Are party spirit and the indulgence of Section al feelings and tho inculcation of sectional principles. This Day when to sri More than i million of armed citizens in hostile away against each other and. Drenching lie land in blood arid destroying cities towns and farms ill wasting War to Carnot hide Finni ourselves that the lessons of Wisdom give to us by Washington Riovo been forgotten of Sot at naught that this has to some extent grown from sectional Principio and attempt to Sot aside the Constitution As to certain provisions by on Section and the Wanton acts of ambitious men on tho other. Now to list Pitilon is armed against of Tharin brother against brother father against son and son against father we can fully appreciate Washington a and Vito and tho blessings of the Union and internal Poareo which to sought to make perpetual. We Havo thought and Felt that the Constitution of this Union was Laid in Wisdom and Justice and that to the Union to owed our Progress and our Groat Prosperity As a nation. We Havo revered tho Constitution and rendered obedience to the Laws made under it and have loved our Flag almost to idolatry As the Emblem of our liberties and our cd dial rights. To Havo had no Kings or lords to worship and have Given our hearts to the e Constitution the Union and our Flag and feel that All Aro Oqual under its May this Day bring renewed Devotion to tho Constitution tho Union mid the stars and stripes -. I Livo always thought and Folt that tho judgement and hearts of tho people were for the Constitution tho Union anti the al Jug As our fathers made them. It is True to saw a Villi amazement that Thore Woro Somo in tho North who had taught themselves and wished to to Eccli others to abhor tho Constitution and proclaimed it q covenant with loll and others in tho South who Devon need its action is unjust and oppressive a cd bought to make others think the Svino. Those men looked to a so partion of the states and the establishment of an Empire they could Rule. A it in tho beginning by persevering efforts these two parties North and South Havo grown in strength and this civil War is the result. But now the hearts and feelings of tho mighty mass of the people no aroused to the Conseruo acc and to see 600,000 armed men marching with banners to the restoration of tho Constitution and the Union. Thoy no the conservative men of tho country and Aro determined to succeed and tho hearts of tho people go with them. If Somo of tho Ortli Havo to Cozio Insano and taught Thom Selyus to Helios a the world is governed by Ono idea and that they Are the missionaries sont by Heavon to dominate Over others and if Somo of the South have Beo Oino insane and made themselves Moi Ieve to list Thoy Woro born to Rule Over another oin Pire to Are not hound to Diphl our sons tiption our Union our equal Laws or equal rights and our Lori Ous Flag to the Iii Lino Daires of Ono or both. Thoy have both proven potent for evil i have always Felt it was for easier to Ristoro the Union Linn to Noruo upon Liq tories of so partion and the Lino of division. I Lio great Nort Liwosz can Revor consent to limit tho Mouth of tho Alissi Sippi and flip Southern ports Shosid to within the Bounds of a foreign nation and Kentucky and other internal Statos can no Vair consent to to tho Border Statos of adjoining and cons to Tutti themselves outposts for the do Ronco and Protection of tho Interior apr Foyil to by submit to numerous collection dist isto. To Ttye system of permits and pcs spa nor be taxed in Elmir outgoings Anil incoming. Thoy Havo had Freo Trade Between tho Tritos and Are determined still to in Vvs it. I i ave Sqq or army is conservative and Marcues to Ristoro tho Constitution and the. Union. This or try is n wonderful creation of Somo soon months and has tho discipline of Votoras anal in recent actions has displayed a tenacity of Nur Poso equal to tho most Rol Iahlo soldiers of history. I Havo con them but without any Wanton destruction of human life or of property Public and when the Battle is Over the wounded the dead and also the prisoners should to cared for As becomes a Christian and civilized people. R. Liis Day if the Power was with me on amnesty and ire Pardon would be proc rimmed to nil whether in arms or riot who in a prescribed time give up their arms Rind the rebel canse acknowledge the Supra May of the Constitution and the Laws and agree Tri submit to them a a a i Arii asked what i would do with the leaders i reply i would leave them to the tribunal arid the punishment prescribed by tho Laws they Havo violated but i am for the largest forgiveness consistent with the restoration of the Constitution arid tho sri Foty of tho Union. All Are not leaders in this rebellion who have acted is its , through tho press or on tho stump or filled High tho strife. Aly policy would embrace All who Are re entrant. History records that the jews the ave Rod nation of the almighty again and again resisted his sacred Laws and were again chastised for. Their rebellions acts. The Shoemo of salvation our holy religion is based on repentance. A when god forgives the , shall not Man forgive his repentant fellow Man a lot us not be too exacting. Let us remember that we Aro but human. The great truth Thorild be Presont with us Quot to err in Lisman to , this is the Teno Hing of gods truth the people often rebelled against Jehovah bul Jey Lovah Hir Solf forgave the repentant sinner. This is the lesson of the Christian religion1. As we Export forgiveness for our offences we must Thuriso misguided men who Havo to Ken up a is again t the Best Govrin ment Eyer seen repent and cd my Back allo Ginnora let us receive them and show tho goodness Rind the Power of the nation in its Power to forgive. Those who repent of this rebellion if pardoned will not go wholly in punished they will have to liar tho Harden. Of conscious guilt the repro Mclies of those they Hove Bugh Tod Cpd made widows and is a to in a urn. Ned the ii Truat Chat and onus accompany ilium to the a Riye.

A it would Declaro the amnesty and , As a financial measure Asri measure of Seq qom in this most expensive and wasteful civil War. I believe it would Apt promptly in Ratia of the and the Ute in i and by Nova in a a storing the Union than Liq Pfosi signal victories our armies have or a Hall obtain if it shorten the War but fifty or one Liu Drod Days it would save to. The nation More than ten times the value of All the estates you would possibly confiscate in Nocor Danoe with Tjio . A a a a.

Fixed capital of the nation and we want it As a part of tee National capital to increase the annual production of tho country to meet tho unusual taxation that my stage with this War an follow it form Ari years. I Havo spoken of and considered Throo restoration of the Constitution and the Union As a fixed fact and have tho Mosic perfect of it. Yet to Hove difficulties to encounter. A the worst enemies of the Constitution pro those whose constant Ory is for tho blood of tho rebels and the confiscation of their estates yith the Quian citation of the slaves and who to Reali their purposes would Traci Isle the Constitution the rights of property Rind the principles of humanity under foot and blast forever the Prosperity of tho. such men propos pm to establish through congressional action provisional government Over. The seceded states. A ,.i am glad to s be our Union armies advancing although i10 weather is Hud and the roads almost impassable and i Hope they will now Striko heavy and Quick. We want no provisional governments in the states under a congressional action. The Union sentiment Strong enough in Tennessee and i believe ill to Strong enough in All the shoo did Statos when supported by the Union armies to take Possession of the state governments and bring them again under the fold Constitution. There can be no fear Bont the supremacy of tho Union Sou ziment ill Quot those Statos. Thore is sound logic and conv uiting Elk que Nee in the material Force of our Union a inies. A not to surprised is the armies and adv no to find that tho work of restoration is More prompt and decisive than a the work of secession and far More unanimous Ken Tutoky had no heart for this civil War.
