LOCAL DEPARTMENT. Natural History--Hogs.
LOCAL DEPARTMENT. Natural History--Hogs. NUMBER 3.
It is with much diflidenco that -we
approach this sjibject. In fact very
few men, even the most scientific, care
to approach a hog. Hogs are- divided
by natural historians into several dis
tinct kinds or classes. As the wild
hog and the tamo hog, the country
ho;r and tho town bos. Wild boss
in great numbers inhabit the vast for
ests of Russia. Tho author of this
treatise, while traversing tho great
Russian Steppes, saw wild hogs in all
their native grandeur, sitting on'thosc
steppes. He called the attention of
his companion, tho Emperor Nicho
las to them, who quietly remarked,
that the great Russian Bear, about
which so much is said in modern di
plomacy, would never trouble Turkey
so long as wild hogs were plenty.
Hogs aro noted for their cleanly hab
its, their sweet and guileless disposi
tion and their musical gifts. It is
these quali ics which have made hogs
the pets of man in all ages. Hard in
deed, must bo tho heart, which can
withstand the plaiulive notes of a
Nothing adds inoro to the beauty
of a town, than to sco tame hogs me
andering about its streets and alleys.
The writer has been informed that the
august city Council of tho very town
where your paper is published, by
special ordinincc make it tho impera
tive duty of every householder, who
is able, to own a few hogs or a sow
and pigs, to turn them itito-tlic streets.
Nothing could be more indicative of
Ihcir good taste and generous culture.
The Marshal is ordered to place in
tho public pound, any man, woman
or child, who disturbs swine, when
they aro rooting tip sidewalks and
grass plats, to extract therefrom the
noxious worms and different kinds of
bugs, which burrow therein. Too
much praise cannot be bestowed upon
tho enlightened public spirit, which
soars above party turmoils and illibo
ral prejudices and as between the
uohifort and freedom of tho individual
and the elegant instincts of swine,
promptly, decides to stand or fall
with the hogs.
. The difference between, town hogs
and country hogs, is very striking.
The town hog has usually less gravi
ty specific gravity, than the country
hog. His facnltics are more brisk
and he is more given to active and
less to reflection, than the country
hog. Town hogs are from their birth
trained to habits of industry. It be
ing lhcir special duty to act as scav
engers, they lose no time. Thev have
to inspect the contents of every slop
bucket, even if they must take a gate
off the binges to get at thorn. They
linvo to examine into the condition of
every gutter. Tliey are supplemented
in their efforts by Boards of Health,
but where a Board of Health removes
one offensive smell, a hog will remove
a hundred. We have sometimes tho't
town hogs wore not very particular
what they cat. but upon examination
wo came to the conclusion that their
eyes were so far from the end of the
snout, they could not sec what their
noso wits in. Wo think if they had
another pnir of eyes nearer the nose,
they would be more particular in this
respect. Wo' believe their running
the streets and poking their noses into
other people's business, has u tenden
cy to make town hogs run to nose.
They certainly do not need so much
nose to 6mell with. It is very good
to -peel Elm trees with and in the
country they aro much .used for that
purpose. They arc handy to run
through picket feuccs and root up
gardens with. Tho attitudo of the
noble animal in the cut which a'doois
this article, represents tho town hog
just as ho has withdrawn his snout
through-a Tence, after it had received
a blow from an indignant gardener.
Hogs don't blow their noses much,
but they receivo a great many blows
from othors. Blows furnished to
hogs nose, especially a town hog, is
about the only way yon can make him
change his mind about the 'direction
he will travel. We havo seen a town
hog, evidently bent upon going west.
and growing up with the country,
change his mind and strike east in a
twinkling, when somebody had blowv
ed his nose for him. If vou wanta
town hog to go north, try and get a
few boys to chase him south. In this
way you can get them to go the way
you want them. Country hogs are
broken to the halter, and we hare, seen
a country hog with a rope tied round
one hind leg, lead its owner for miles,
and seemingly manifest great aflec
tion for him.
In our treat i so upou Cats, we at
tempted to show our readers how our
language developed from tho custom
and habits of. that beautiful animal
From tho days when musical roll of
the Sanscrit, whoso majestic ruins
arouse the enthusiasm of the phrciiol
orist to tho present day, language has
grown from trivial cijcunistaiiccs to
words and phrases of profound mean
ing. Tho boy at school, as ho pon
dcrs over liquid measures, (and the
writer was always much more partial
to this than dry measures, although
he was no crusader) little thinks that
the thick skinned pachyderm, which
for short we call a hog, suggested the
idea of calling sixty-threo gallons
hogs-head. The vessel called a hogs
head, wns, beforo tho invention of th
beer tank, tho largest made, and by
watching tho vast amount which
hog would get through his head to fill
his stomach, the idea of calling it
hogs-head was suggested.
Since Natural History began to as
sume the beautiful outlines of a sci
ence, great attention has been devot
ed to the culture and development of
the hog. In the western hemisphere
one of the most successful breeders of
hi heautiful animal, succeeded so
admirably, that the pork which came
from his yard is known the world
over as swiiic-FLaiscu, or the swine
of Mr. Fleisch. It was by the cross
ing the stock of Mr. Fleisch, with that
of a celebrated connosscur in the same
line, by tho name of Shaw, that was
produced tho rare stock owned by
one Gustavus Peters, a great natural
istorian, whose numerous works
avc attracted the attention of the
learned and liberal professions, espe
cially the law. It is related upon
good authority, that one of the chief
officers of the high Court of Justice
of tho Peace, by the name of Gold
smith, by virtue of a writ, attempted
o seize upon some of the hogs of the
oble Gustavus, to satisfy -the rapaci
ty of a heartless creditor, when the
ogs became a'armcd and climcd tall
trees, even to their topmost boughs,
nd the luckless officer had to pursue
them and shake them down. It was
ot until a writ of "ke exeat reo-
num had been placsd in Lib nanus
t hat he felt the least assurance he could
There was a noted Swinologist by
the name of Dufficld, who carried tho
improvement of breeds to such per
fection that bis hogs grew to so pon
derous a sizo that tho Legislature of
the Slate in which he lived passed a
pecial act forbidding his hogs to
;rov more than ten feet in length, or
fifteen feet in diameter. Ho at once
put his hogs npon half rations, but
they became so fat notwithstanding
this restriction, that he reduced their
rations, more and is yet sorely per
plexed. For a long lime it has been an ad
mitted fact that pork killed in the
lit of the moon would shrink in
cooking, if killed in the dark of the
moon would swell. As the various
scientists began to reflect upon this
strange phenomena, one of the most
pious and cradito of their number
called attention to tho fact, that au
ccount was given in snored writ,
That when tho Devil got into the
herd of swine, they ran violently down
steep placo into the lea." And up
on an examination ot metoonogicai
records of both ancient and modern
times it was found that the tides ever
since have risen and fallon, in strict
accordance with the lights and shades
cast upon the surface of tho great
deep by the moon, and the more ad
vanced scientists now believe that it
is tho alternate swelling and shrink
ing of the pickled pork iu the ocean
which produced the grand phenom
ena, the tides of the great deep.
We would indeed be pleased could
wo say all in ono treatise which our
prolific subject suggest. But wc must
close. We might further follow our
theme. There is an end to every
thing even a town hog sooner or
later his evil destiny overtakes him,
The scene shuts nn with loss of breath
And leaves no epilogue but death.
Sturm keeps the largest stock of
Clotiiing in the county.
Something near two years ago James
Bruce had a mare stolen from his pas

lief until on Saturday last, when he
was somewhat surprised at seeing her
standing quietly in the street hitched

Vermillion who has heretofore lived
in Darke Co., has recently rented Dr,
Stepheu's farm north of town, and
moved on to it amonc the animals
owned bv him was Bruee's mare. Mr.
Vermillion was fully as much astonish
cd as Mr. Bruce, he having purchased
or trailed for the mare in Darke co. soon
after she was stolen. We understand
