At the earliest possible moment after our Camp had been pitched a Hunt was set afoot and capt. Grant myself and some attendants were soon making our Way to the path. There were no animals there when we arrived except a few Hipp Potami and we Cere therefore obliged to wait Ibe coming of some More palatable game. Our patience severely taxed and after n Long delay we were about to bag a Hipp Potami when one of our perched in a tree about half a mile Distant began waving his Blanket this was a signal that Fame was approaching. We immediately Resinto cover and awaited the coming up of the latter. We were not delayed Long Abr pres envy a Long column of animals from the elephant to the. Hoodoo appeared in View trotting at a Good Pace to the River. Their flanks were soon presented to us and each selecting his object fired. La Coll shot a Fine Young Buffalo cow while capt. Grant was equally successful with a. Hoodoo and several Spears cast by. Our attendants slipped the career of one or two different animals of the Herd. At. This juncture however occurred an unexpected adventure that finished our sport at least for that Day. I bad sprung Forward immediately after firing in order to obtain a fair shot at a huge. Elephant that i wanted to bring Down on account of his immense tusks. I got the desired aim and pulled tar trigger of my second barrel. At the moment pm my doing so a wild cry of alarm uttered by one of the Blacks called my attention. Glancing my Eye chanced to Range up into the foliage of the tree beneath which capt. Grant and myself had lain for several hours previous. My feelings May possibly be imagined As 1 beheld an enormous Boa Constrictor whose hid Eona neck projected some j. Was situated that i was still living incl hat my delivery depended on the will of the Constrictor. To could Sec every line on Ach others face so close were to. And i would have shouted or spoken or even Bis or de at in had i dared. But the Boa s Lead was placed within n foot of mine and i be Wink of an eyelid would perhaps Settle my doom so i stared stared like a dead Man. It Grant and at the Blacks. Presently the scr Pant began gradually to Elax his folds and after re tightening them i everal times As the crushed bul Fulo quivered in unwound Trio fold entirely. Then he mused. The next Iron like band was Tho one which held and As 1 Felt it Little y Little a clasping my heart stood still with Jope a fear perhaps upon being freed the uncontrolled by my will might All from the Cushion like bed in which it Lay. And such a in Isbay might bring the spare around my neck or Chest Anil then Larowe to the sources of tie Nile. 0 Bow hardly Bow desperately i struggled to co Naod myself i glanced at Gran i an3 saw Lim handling Bis Rifle anxiously i glanced at the negroes and them still going As though petrified with astonishment. I glanced at the servant s loathsome head and saw its Bright deadly eyes watching forthe last sign of life in its prey. Then the reptile loosened its fold on my Arm a hair s breadth and now a Little more1, till half a inc of space separated my Arm and its mottled skin. I could have whipped out my baud but dared not take the risk. Atoms of time dragged into Ages and a minute seemed eternity itself the second fold was removed entirely Aud the next one was easing. Should i dash away now or wait a More favourable moment decided upon the former and with lightning Speed i bounded away toward Grant the crack of whose piece i heard at the same instant. For the first Lime in my life i was thoroughly overcome and sinking Down i remained to a Semi conscious stale for several minutes. When i fully recovered Grant Aud the overjoyed negroes lie id me up and pointed out the Boa who was still writhing in his death agonies. I shuddered As i looked upon the effects of Bis tremendous dying strength. For Yards around where he Lay grass and Bushes Aud saplings find in fact every tiling except the More full grown Trees were Cut clean off As though they incl been tried with an immense scythe. This monster when measured was fifty Otie feet two inches and a half in extreme length while round the thickest portion of its body the Girth was three feet thus proving. 1 believe to be the largest Serpent that was Ever authentically Beard of. Capt. Up cd s boo k in the discovery of the source of the Wile. The capture of the pirate Florida the Boston traveler thus pleasantly does up the capture of the of Orida by the Wach sett gradually the rebel corsairs Are gathered into the american Navy or destroyed. The Ken Sarge sent the Alabama to the Bottom of the sea. The Niagara gobbled up the Georgia and now the Wach sett surprised and the Florida almost As noted and destructive a Craft As the Alabama herself. The Florida was lying in the Harbor of Bahia in the Empire of Bra probably have been frightened out of their wits and have beat a speedy Retreat under such circumstances. Her Only anxiety was lest the Bear would get off. On returning she proceeded to Cut Down a Small fir sapling which she pointed at one end and gave it to Tea boy to Raddle about in the Hole to ascertain whether twas occupied or not while she stood with uplifted a a Little one Side. No sooner the pole inserted than out Camo the Bond of a monstrous she Bear and Down came Tho. A on her Skull with such Force that it remained sticking. Fast in the wound amp accompanied Bruin As he retreated to to furthest end of the Cave. Time being up for round number her opponent not putting in an appearance she determined to try the effect o t. No sooner bad she fired Down the Hole than out bolted a cub about the size of a sheep dog when her son cleverly managed to catch bold of it by. The Hind leg. But it was too Strong for the Little fellow and after drugging him for some distance Man aged. To get away. Determined however not to lose him Mother and son went in Pursuit and speedily overtook the animal which had taken to the water. A few Well administered taps with the end of the oar soon rendered him 7iore in combat. Having secured him the courageous Little woman went Back again to the and gave it another stirring up. But All was still. Next she fired a second shot but nothing moved. Concluding that the Bear must be dead or else escaped during her absence she determined to dig her out a work of no Small Lubor. Success however attended her exertions for at length she found Bear 5ying quite dead with the a still sticking in her Cleft Skull and by her Side another cub As big As the first with a Bullet wound through his neck also dead.

Half the officers too were ashore. Using in this state the a Chusett ran Down upon her at 3 o clock on the morning of the 7tb of october capt. Collins having come to the bold conclusion would take the rating out of the sea Wasp even Tho she was lying in a Neutral port and prepared to take the consequences of his conduct. The Corsair was As completely taken by Surprise As if she had been the advanced guard of a Federal army and fell into the hands of Captain Collins with perfect ease. The half of her officers and Crew who were on Board became prisoners. Not a Man was scratched on Eit Side and but Lutle powder was flashed and that uselessly. A gun. Or two was fired the Wach sett but unavoidably and some pistols off on Board the Florida. The Federal ship then went to St. Thomas with her prize. Morris who commanded the Florida was ashore when she was taken. He is said to be a Clever fellow at his profession and secession apart not a bad fellow in other respects and if be has any sense of humor he must have laughed when he Learned How completely his had been taken in and there is something ludicrous in the position in which Morris found himself after his loss without a ship and with half his Crew in a strange land where he is looked upon As half a pirate. Doubtless the brazilians will be hospitable and use him and his and probably their government will feel or. Affect a great Deal of indigestion because of what.
