things ibu like, of wBiclTcan never ocwir
again, in tne early eettiemeni oi tne
country the common gray aquirrel (ticu--
rut cinoreui) existed In almost fabulous
n ambers. The fact was tot peenliar to
the West.' It existed everywhere in the
new. settlements tad it is recorded in
the early colonial history oi Pennsylva
nia thai foity thousand dollart waa paid
out of the publlo coffers, in a single year,
for the scalps of tbisraveoouabut beautiful
utile robber or toe eoro Heidi. ' At pe
riods of long interval tbey were partially
migratory in their habits. In the tall or
1821 or 1822. the were oneoinmooly nu
merous in this region, and were terribly
destructive of the growing crop of corn.
The cultivated lands' at thai time eonaiet
ed moat of what is called '"dekdeninga,"
the Soldi being thickly studded over
with girdled and dead forest trees,' which
afforded a ready retreating shelter or the
squirrels in thair depredations' upoi the
yoang and ripenini' eorn.', t s 4 u
A he season alluded to was a remarka
ble on for the larcenous, habits of this
destructive little animal. . 80 serious had
beeutue their vholesale plunderings, that
tne people or -the country were uuven to
the necessity of adopting soma prompt
ana energetic means or nuaing tnem-
selvea of the annoyanoe. Aeoordingly
a grand oounty bunt was proposed. The
plan waa consummated by dividing the
oounty into two aectiona, the Sototo Iiiv
er.runninc through the county from north
to south, forming ibe dividing line.
Three daya were allotted for the hunt,
and Iineaa Suluvant was eboeea aa eap
tain of the western division, and ltalph
Osborn of tlie eastern. A barrel of whis
ky waa the price to be oDtuded for, to
be drank b; the assembled crowd at
Frankliiitnp on. the fourth day, at which
time and place the scalps were to be
athered and counted. Accordingly, on
the fourth dsy a larce-crowd of hunters
and spectators assembled on the bank of
the river at the ancient connty seat, and
scalpa of the squirrels were produced and
by the bag lul, and the viotory, aiifid the
oheors and shouts of at least a portion of
he maltttude, was eToolared in favor of
Captain Sallivant and bla party.
Mo anoient tournament to tne days of
knight chivalry produced aaore excite
meat or greater interest than did this
contest for the viator ia aquirrel scalps.
In my juvenil ambitioi I felt as proud
of my threa hundred scalps as ever
did mailed cavalier in unhorsing hi an
tagonist by aword and spear. The num
ber of squirrels destroyed waa almost fab
ulous. I recollect there waa some error
occurred in the statement made in the
newspapers of tbe day. Tbey put down
the number at nineteen or twenty thou
sand. In a conversation I had on lost
evening with Mr. Joseph Sultivant, be
gave it as his opinion that that was the
number wbion the West had over the
East, an that is my opbion'also. I am
satUfiod, from my recollection of the dis
cussion at the time, in oritioiam of the
published statement, that tho number
was largely creator.
The diminution of the number, waa
not at all perceptible, from the fact of
tusir being at the time on their migratory
journey, and the placea of those killed
were soon ocpqpied by tueir itinerant
brethren. The earn crfiP of thp county
for that reason, was almost entirely de
stroyed. Tbe castorn portion of the
county, at that period, was much more
thickly populated than that of the West;
and w of the East would have been the
victors 10 the contest bad the rifle been
nsed as tbe otlv weapon in the hunt

reot line for the opposite shore, nothing
can Ufa them from aa loou from their
course In this way our Weetorn friends
and competitors killed thousands of thorn
with clubs on this side of the river.

Mr. Girard pronounced them first-rate
and demanded tbe prioe. "One Dollar,"

"Cheap enough 1 make out your bill."
Tbe bill was made out, and old Stove
settled it with aoheok for (50,000, whioh

if there wu this organisation for assassin

did, for some time it is most remarkable
toat there was no betrayal or leakaee In
any quarter, and that ao intimation of ft

desperate a deed, should have imnarted

whole affair io tbe bnd. Men of bis
character and stamp are not apt to bave
a number of confidante when tbey engage

apiraov will be tested, really for the first
time, by th present trial of- Burratt. The
military investigation last June wu a
mere farce, and only acted to carry ont a
predetermiued course of polioy. Now,
the rule of law and evidence will govern,
and tbe pnblio will stand soma chance to
learn tha troth of the matter. If there
