The following interesting Accotink of the Polar Bear is extracted from a incr j family Library a work abounding in the snort useful and amusing information. Quot in the caves of the rocks or in hollows of the ice dwells the most formidable of Arctic quadrupeds the Greenland or Polar Bear. This fierce tyrant fihe Cliffs and Sno tvs of the North unites the strength of the lion with the Unta Mcable fierceness of the Hyena. A Long Shungi a covering of White Short hair and a copious Supply of fat enabled him to defy the Winter of this rigorous climate. Under the heat of briton he suffers the Roost painful sensations Pennant saw one Over whom it was necessary Froni time to Timo to pour Large Paula full of water. Another kept for some years by professor Jameson evidently suffered severely by the heat of an Edinburgh Suin Mer. The haunt of the beat is on the dreary Arctic , or on mountains of ice soil Selimes two Hundred i Niles from land yet he is not strictly speaking Ara Philipus. To Cunt remain under water but a few moments and he reaches Bis Raar irime stations Only by swimming from one Ico fragment to another. Or. Scoresby the swimming reach to Eluee Miles yet Parry found one in the Centre of Barrow s Strait where it wos40 Miles across this Bear prowl continually for his prey which consists chiefly of the smaller cetacean and of seals which unable to contend with him shun their Fato by keeping a strict watch and ply singing into the tvs paths of the water. With the Walrus he holds dreadful and doubtful encounters and that powerful animal with his enormous lurks freq Ien try Beatah of with great damage. The my of altar but Iva Ches ii truly for Tai huge carcass in dead Fate which a Foril him a prolonged and delicious feast Hel Isufi it at the distance of Miles. All. These a our a of Supply Teing precarious,.he is some ism for weeks without food am the airy hunger then becomes tremendous. Ii to such periods Man viewed by it Mola As his prey is attacked with Peculiar Fier Renss. The annals of the North Are filled with accounts of Iho most Peri Long and fatal conflicts of the Polar Bear. The first and one of the most trip tical was Susta ined by Barentz and hem Skerlec in 1596, during their voyage for the of the North East passage. Having anchored at an Island near the Strait of Way Gatz two Oft a sailors landed and were walking on a Horo when one of hem Felt himself closely hug from this a frolic of one of his Coro Anions a Quot Quot tiled out in a Contoi pending tone. Quot whup Hosrof Pray stand his comm i i looked and a named out a Bear a i hear Quot then naming to the ship Loroi de the Crew Wilh Load cries. The sailors ran to the spot armed with pikes and sets. On the approach the Bear very coolly quilted the mangled corps sprung upon another Sailor carried him off and plunging his Teeth in his body began Drin. . Hereupon the whole of the Stout Crew struck with terror turned their bocks ind bed precipitately to the ship. On arriving there they began to look at each other unable to feel much satisfaction with their Owr prowess. Three then stood Forth under taking to avenge the Fate of their country men and to secure for them the rights of burial. They advanced and fired at first from to respectful a distance that they ail missed. The Purser then courageously proceeded in front obis companions and taking a close aim pierced the monster Skull immediately below the Eye. The Bear however merely lifted his head and a lanced upon Thein holding still in his Mouth the victim whom he was devouring but seeing him soon stagger the three rushed on him with Sabre and Bayonet and soon despatched him. Thoy collected and bestowed decent sepulchre on the mangled limbs of their comrades while the skin of the animal 13 feet Long became the prize of the Sailor who had fired Thi successful shot. The history of the record a number of remarkable escapes from the Bear. A dutch Captain Jonge Kees in 1668, undertook Wilh Tivo canoes to a. Tack one and with a Lance gave Hira c dreadful wound in the belly that his in Rae Diato death seemed inevitable. ious therefore not to injure the skin keep merely followed the animal close till h should drop Doton dead. The Lear hot Ever having climbed a Little Rock made i Spring from the distance of 24 feet upon the Captain who taken comparatively by Surprise lost hold of the Lance and fell beneath the assailant who placing both paws on his breast opened two rows of try Mendito is Teeth and paused for a ment As if to show Hira All the horrors of his situation. At this critical instant a Ailor rushed Forward with Only a scoop succeed cd in alarming the monster what made off leaving the Captain without the slightest injury. In 1788, Captain Cook of the archangel when near he coast of Spitsbergen found himself suddenly Between the paws of a Bear. To instantly called on the surgeon who act my Anis him to fire which the latter did with such admirable promptitude and precision that he shot the beast through the head and delivered the Captain. Sir. Hawkins of the Ever Thorpe in july 1818, having pursued and twice struck a Large Bear had raised i Lance for a third blow when the animal sprung Forward seized him by the thigh and threw him Over his head into the wat a. Fortunately it used this advantage Only o its own escape. Captain scoresby mentions a boat s Crew which at inc cd a Bear in the spit Borgen sea hut Ini Inal having succeeded in climbing Side of the boat All the sailors thre Thom selves for safety in Lotho water where they Hung by the gunwale. Tie Victor it Rcd triumphantly and took Possession of the Barff there it was shot by another party. The same writer mentions the contrivance Ofa Sailor who being pursued by one of these creatures threw Down successively his hat handkerchief and every other article in his Possession when the brute Pau sit at each gave the Ailor always a certain advantage and Nabl Dhim finally to regain the vessel. Though the voracity of the Bear is such that he has been known to feed on his own species yet maternal tenderness is As conspicuous in the female a in other inhabitants of the Frozen regions. There is no exertion which she will not make for the Supply of her progeny. A she Bear with her own cubs being pursued by some sailors across a Field of ice and finding that neither by e.\amplc, nor by Peculiar voice and action she could urge them to the requisite Speed applied Hei paws and pitched them alternately Forward. The Little creatures whet selves As she came up threw themselves before her to receive the impulse and thus both she and they of jilted their escape. Bears Are by no Means devoid of intelligence. Their schemes for entrapping seals and other animals on which they feed often display considerable ingenuity. The manner in which the Polar hear sur Fol his victim is thus to described by Captain Lyon a on seeing his intended prey he gets quietly into , and swims to Leward position from whence dives to Sile itly makes his a Proa a and so arranges his distance last dire to Catnes to Iho ipod where to Al is lying. If the poor animal att Emnot Elf Capo by in Biog into the water he Fallahi touche paws of the Scafi if on tha contrary , his destroyer makes a powerful Spring kills him on the ice and devout a at Leos Katmo sailors endeavouring a catch a Bear placed n noon of. A Rone idiom Jas Snow baited with a piece of to Bale s Fly Alil the boar however contrived throbs in Cen Sive tines to push the noose and carry off the bait unhurt.

It appears that the French Govi ment hns dissented from the protocols of the conferences to the ambassadors of the five Powers in London. In tvo or three is laces Viz one which defines the Boi Dary lines Between Holland and Belgium and one which relates to the proportions if the Public debt to be borne by two Stales. The French government dissented from these dispositions on the ground that the Allied Powers interposed Only As mediators and that the matters to which these two protocols related ought to be adjusted by the two slates by Mutual consent.
