that looked liko tltef wreck of A battle flag.

Which he had purchased for' slaughter.
Finding difllciilty in otherwise ealching
him, he set a largo bull-dog upon the calf,
which soon brought him to the ground., ut
tering most pitcohs cries. s Tho ''horse,
which till now had seemingly pitid no at
tention, aroused by tlio cries of distress,
no sooner prcceived the. perilous situation
of his. helplosS . companion, .than with cars
feercd.'jaws distended, mniip and tail 'erect
ho hastened to his relief!' ThdA dog still
continued his hold, despite the tluva'sn-
ing aspect of thq horse, when , the, nollo
fellow, fasteuing his teeth upon the dog,
with one toss threw him complety over
the Adjacent fence!' Meanwhile the butch
er had approached so near as to catch hold
of tho calf ash was rising, which, the
horse perceived, he turned upon him his
posterior artillery, throwing nis heels ev
ery time still nearer the butcher' head,

'Thou Wilt doubtless, willingly lira the
