who said that, but .) If
were to run such an engine a real, lit
erary, political, social, locorr'otive, I'd
fill her with the coal of conviction tnd
the water of candor, and get the steam

of intention with the hand of justice,
and run her out upon the rjtijiin track,

In our paper, the (Citizen) of 1818,
is au obituary of Daniel Boone, by a
correspondent siguing "Surporter."
Here it is:
"As he'lived so he died, with his
gun 'in his hand. We are informed
by a gentleman direct from booue's
settlement on tho Missouri, that early
last mouth Col. Boone rode to a deer
lick, rcated himself 'withh'Ta blind
raised to conceal him from the game.
That while seated thus concealed
with his trusty rifle in his lnnd, point
ed toward the lick, the muzzjasjsting
on a log, his face to the breech of his
gun, his rifle cocked, his finger ongthe
trigger, one eye shut, the other looking
along the barrel through
this position, without a struggle or
motion, and of course without pain, ho
breathed his last so gently that when
found next day by his friends, although
stiff and bold, he lookhdas'if alive,
with his gun iu'b.i3 hands just Jn the
act of firing. It is not altogether certain,
whether a buck had come in the
range of his gun which had been death
to thousands, but it might have
obeyed its old employer's mind
and discharged itself. This hypolhe
sis being novel wo leave the solution
to tho curious."
