My Bear Hunt with Gen. Wade Hamp?
EDITORS Tunr, FIELD AND FABSI: It is
now more than fifteen years since I
passed through that soul harassing,
olothos-tourtug, brain-exciting experi?
ence yclept "a bear hunt;" and I am
frank to confess that I uever felt anxious
to go on another. Not that I don't like
the "bear" in tho abstract. I do, but in
the ooncretel I say it solemnly, give me
tho ahanoes of shipwreck, a lighted cigar
in a powder-mill, tho rattling volley of a
line of buttle, a keroseno lamp explosion,
anything, in short, that has a reputation
for being dangerous, ia preference' to
400 or 500 pounds of wild moat that runs
riot without chart or compass, ignores
all rales of legitimate sport, and requires
a flask of powder, a score of rifle shots,
und the salient argument of a Bowie
knife, before you can enjoy tho satisfac?
tion of knowing that your game is so
eminently dead as to deserve an obituary
notioe. I'll tell yon all about it as a rest
from my summer labors. [ determined
to devote a couple of the autumn months
to a jaunt Westward. I did BO. Rifle
in hand, I had spent a considerable por?
tion of the fall of 1856 on the prairies;
I had hob-nobbed with Indians until I
could give a Comanche war-whoop like a
native; drank "hair-trigger" liquid light?
ning with the trappers until they agreed
I was entitled to voto, and shot buffalo
from my mustang until it seemed like
murder to kill any more. Ia fact I was
tired with sport, and had reached St.
Pani on my journey East, when who
should unexpectedly turu up but my old
friend, Jim Kavanagh, for years after?
wards a delegate and member of Con?
gress from the new Western Territories
and States-a born pioneer. The meet?
ing was mutually cordial, and after ex?
changing the usual salutatory compli
meuts, our conversation ended in my
agreeing to accompany him on an expo
?litiou down the Mississippi ou the fol?
lowing day. He was going to look uftei
some land along the river; knew all the
planters worth knowing, and could pro
mise an amount of pleasure that wooli:
make me feel as happy as Adam and Eve
before they knew anything about origi
nal sin, so ho said. This was certuinly t
change, and it suited me.
Past St. Louis, past Memphis, past al
the pretty islands that have doubtlesi
onoe been iu a state of solution; pas
great bends and bluffs, against which th?
Father of Waters had written th?
wrinkles of his age; past great planta
tions where thousands of acres, fleck?!
with tho snow of Southern summer, fore
told the wealth that would, in a fe*
months, pour into the coffers of the auc
cessful oottou planter, until at last w
reached Helena, Ark. This was m;
friend's destination-a quiet, iuoonsidex
able frontier town at that time, wher
boats wooded up and merchants landei
supplies. Our traps had not been at th
hotel more than an hour, when wh
should make his appearance at tho hotc
bat Col. Wade Hampton-like ourselves
a temporary sojourner, ho haviog com
up for the nonce on an erraud from hi
plantation sovoral miles below. To dc
scribe the man is scarcely necessary, fe
pen and ink descriptions, as ho has ax
pearce! in tho character of tho leader c
the Confederate cavalry in tho late ut
civil war, have made his person familit
to almost every reader of every newspi
per in tho aouutry. At that time, hov
ever, he was tho plain Southorn plante:
a perfect typo of his class, and never
better exemplification of their hospitab
characteristics than when, finding us I
be goutlemen of some cuitare, (?) 1
pressed us to accompany him ou his r
turn homeward and partako of sue
pleasure as his placo afforded. I remet
ber that, among other things, he pr
posed "a bear hunt," and I, fool-hk
jumped at the idea like a school-bo
But I won't anticipate.

every souse; the rich low-laud growth,
sending forth from jeBsamino and mag?
nolia the perfume for which my old wife
used to pay $1.00 a bottle, and be satis?
fied with a third-rate imitation; the
stutoly steps of our blooded horses, as
we now and then broke into a gentle
cauter; tho coursing of the dogs, who,
freo from leash, roamed through the
woods at will, stirring up tho smaller
game, and making the neighborhood
musical with their glad notes; the jolly
cachinations of tho old time servants,
who, while not forgetful of tho homage
they owed their muster, still enjoyed a
freedom from restraint and au equality
with him that would have made un Abo?

I eau describe it-there was a crasl
of reeds in front of mo. In au ins
more, Gen. Hampton, hot and Hui
with pursuit, his clothes torn, and
flue fuco lighted up with that keon,
expression which I can fancy ill
nated it on many Another occasion it
hour of danger afterwards, stood fat
face with me. It was but a second,

Seizing me by the breast, he pushe
! back into the wilderness of canes per?
haps throe or four feet-at any rate, out
of tho narrow path-und exclaimed, as I
fell backward, "Stuy there, as you value
your life. Don't move au inch!" At
the same moment, darting forward, he
dropped on his knee, and, cocking his
rifle, waited. I can't describe the inter?
val, it was so short; but it seemed as if
before I could gasp, tho bear was on
him. He fired, coolly and steadily ns if
ho were shooting at ducks. The bear
gave a groan, but the paco was un?
stacked. Ho dashed on, np to tho very
muzzle of tho remaining gun barrel.
Tho General was in the not of pulling
the trigger, when a cane, slipping from
undor his feet, flew upward, like a
spring, and striking tho weapon, the gun
waB discharged high in the air. In the
twinkling of an eye, the General was on
the ground, struck down by the fore-paw
of the enraged brute, but knife in hand,
and as ecol as if promenading his own
piazza. I sprang forward to his assist?
ance, but he shouted to me to stand
back. He was lying almost at full
length with the bear, while the latter
was being torn and distracted by the
dogs, now in full force, and doubly
frantic, seeing their master in bis power.
It was but the work of a moment, but 1
shouldn't forget the scene in a month ol
centuries. The General's right nrm and
knife were under the animal, but with o
motion quick as a fl.iab, ho threw th*
other arm over the body, and clutching
the knifo, diove it deep into the heart
of th? brute. There was a spasmodic
stroke of the paw in the direotion of thc
stroke of the blade, for a bear ul way t
strikes out in the direction from whence
it experiences pain-a fact, by-tho-way,
which saved the face and body of thc
General-and after a Bhort convulsive
spasm, the monster lay dead. And tba
is all. The dogs, with their jaws al
bloody, were called save one, who la]
iu the brake punting ia its death agoni
from wounds it had received. Tb!
Generul recovered his feet without i
scratch; gathered his gun, wiped thi
bloody knife iu the dark fur; sheathec
it in an overy-day sort of fashion; tb

We killed auother bear the next morn

humble servant, ho was satiated wit

cler, I am boand to say that I wa
scared all the way through, from m
os frontis to astralagus, aud ?ince thc
time have respectfully declined all inv
tations to meet bear on bis nativ
heather. In less than sixty days aftc
the events I have recorded, ? commeuoi
to uso hair dye, and grew prcmuturel

the season is uot a first-rate one. .
one time it promised finely, but in ripe

entirely ripe nnd yellow, while othe
