Letter from the Backwoods of Maine.
No. 4—From Eineo to Eatahdin.
Drab Press :—A living, breathing moose,
with the lake before him and his own wild
woods behind him for a reftige, is a far differ
ent animal from the stuffed skin we see in
Museums or from the stupid, sluggish brute in
the Menagerie. As we approached the one re
ferred to in my Ikst letter, he turned and raised
his head, from the alders near which he was
feeding, and gave a sharp, quick look at the
canoes drawing near him. His head was lean
ed a little to one side as if he desired to con
firm his suspicion of our errand by catching
some noise of warning. But our stillness gave
him no such hint, and as we came so slowly
and silently along, he seemed assured that he
had no reason to be alarmed, and then he re
sumed his feeding. Three or four times he
raised his head to study our object, and after
each survey returned to his water-grass and
leaves. We had now drawn so near to him
that we could watch every motion he made,
and see distinctly his great mouth and nostrils,
The rich brown hair was glossy from the water
clinging to it after his recent plunge in the
stream, and, had it not been for the unsightly
hump on his back near the neck, he would
have been called a beautiful creature. Strange
to say he had no horns, and we thought his
motions were consequently more rapid than
they could have been with huge antlers on his
head. But I have been told by hunters that
the largest moose, with horns of the greatest
size, can easily find their way through thick
growth and with such rapidity that the noise
of their going is like the crash of felling trees
in an old forest. During the painful silence in
which we dared not move our bodies in the
slightest degree, or even whisper to each other
our admiration of the strength and beauty we
saw before us, and while we were waiting for
the time at which a bullet would do its work
the best, we felt the canoe turn a little to the
right. Harldv had it swung round twenty de
grees before we heard a low whistle from the
guide and, ia an instant the moose gave a
frightened look and raised his head on his long
neck to its greatest height , and moved it quick
ly from side to side as if he was at once watch
ing us and looking for some way of escape. As
he stood before us he was of the height of an
ordinary horse or perhaps a little lower, and
of nearly the same form, with the slight excep
tion of smaller legs and different hoofs. He
had also a broader nose and wider nostrils, al
most flaring. But in the hasty glances we had
at his beauty and strength there was no time
to mark with accuracy, the points of resem
blance or difference, for the sigual from the
guide was enough to send the sharp crack of
the rifles echoing through the woods and two
bullets flew into the side of the animal.
Wounded but plucky yet. Good stufTin that
moose; for see how he gave a quick plunge up
the steep bank and passed through the alders
into the woods behind. A chase for us all now,
and let it be a rapid one, for there is no time
to reload the rifles and one must be on his
track. The crimson stain an the veratrum and
the blue-joint grass was a trail easy to follow,
for no hand could hare marked a path more
unmistakable.
And what of moose-meat ?
Will it not be too much like telling hungry
Tantalus of the delicious fruits just beyond his
reach?
Around our camp-fire, that night, there were
many wishes that the rich viands could be
•hared with the Mends at home, for we could
not believe that the severe labor in the canoes
gave to the moose-steak a relish which was not
its own. Halfway between a tender sirloin
beef-steak and roast pork, the moose-meat lias
a character of itself, a peculiar grain. This
grain is finer than that of beef and much
coarser than that of pork, greatly resembling
the venison of Eastern Maine. Our repast was
none the less Inviting because it was eaten off
the dull tin plates of our camp, for tin has a
silver ring in the forests of pine. Who can
blame us for then remembering that some
where among our bulky knapsacks was a bob
tie of currant wine which a Mend had given
to us as a stirrup-cup not to be drunk at our
parting,but in the pleasantest part of the woods.
What wonder that our guides became commu
nicative beyond their wont and told us hunt
ing stories, each one harder to believe than
the last, till one by one, we sought our blankets
and slept dreaming of modern Arabian nights.
The great fire at our feet burned on till morn
ing, when at three we woke.
It was not yet sunrise, but still the cold, ear
ly dawn, when we cooked our breakfast and
were again satisfied that there is nothing like
moose-stsak. Our course for the day was a
difficult one. On our route we should have
two miles of “carrying” across “Mud Pond”
portage. The louth end of this carry Is on
Umbarooksus Lake, while the other is at Mud
Pond, near Chamberlain. Preparing to cross
this portage, our canoes were removed from
the water, and the load for each one was se
lected. Taking a load of considerable weight,
I think a couple of firkins, one of flour and
one of pork, my knapsack and several pack
ages of paper for preserving plants, I set out
on the carry. The guides good-naturedly ad
vised me to start with less; but no, I was equal
to the task. After a hundred rods of mud and
water, now and then stepping into a miry place
of one or two feet depth, I thought it expedi
ent to leave one of the firkins among the
bushes for a second load, when I should have
got used to carrying. With a mnch lighter
load, I stumbled along over the muddy path,
till the firkin of pork became heavy enough to
support our party for a couple of months, at
least; and this was likewise deposited in a
clump of alders. The two miles were six at
the shortest computation,by the time I reached
an opening. Here was the other end of the
portage! No signs of water, though; and
where was Mud Pond ? A tree at the side of
the road explained all;
320 RODS.
x uau tuiuc jUBi iimii v*»> i
Where could I find a better place to leave
the presses and paper till that second journey ?
Now the way seemed easy enough,for we were
going on higher land before descending to
Chamberlain. Before reaching the end of the
carry, we were deep in mud and in the study
of the habits of the musquito. AH good things
come to an end, and so did the long, tiresome
portage. In front was a shallow lake of sev
eral miles extent, and this was “Mud Pond.”
On the shores of this water I deposited my
knapsack, fully convinced that a set of muscles
differing from those commonly used in the
gymnasium, had been called into play, and I
concluded to accept hereafter the advice of
guides. While rubbing sundry aching places
under my arms and on my shoulders, I saw a
nondescript craft coming across the pond.—
One of the guides had just come up, having
found my two firkins in the thickets, and had
brought them along, lie said,
“I thought you wouldn't care much about
seeing such a carry twice.” As he looked up
he saw the canoe approaching, and remarked,
“Dirty Donnel, as sure as I’m alive. Now,”
said he, “it will be just as well for you to sit
here with the things till we get them all over,
as old Donnel will take care of them if you
don't.”
The canoe, in which the worthy representa
tive of the “Great Unwashed” was nearing us,
was a “spruce-bark,” and a spruce-!>ark is in
describable. It is made of the bark t urned in
side out, and bent up at the ends, very much
after the manner of a boy’s soldier-cap; and
braced with ribs of cedar. “Donnel” was
standing in this canoe as it came near the
shore, and a strange sight it was. With no ex
ception, his clothes were a patchwork of parti
colors, now sewn with black thread and now
with white; and, altogether, be presented a
most outre appearance. As he landed and
drew up his canoe, he turned to me and said
with a “humph,”
“Sacking?”
On my giving an affirmative answer he amid,
“Yer be ant much used to It, like?”
With his sharp Scotch shrewdness he had
seen in a moment that I was not used to “sack
ing,” as they call carrying; and this remark in
a broad Scotch brogue told his disguised na
tionality. When he found I was waiting for
others to come across the portage, he began
looking at our traps, one after the other, say
ing nothing at ail. Curious to learn something
of the strange old fellow, I ventured to ask
him a few questions about the facilities for
hunting on a certain one of the northern lakes,
but nothing would he say except now and then
he would give a dissatisfied Indian grunt, and
move further off. At last, despairing of learn
ing anything about him till the guides came
up, I said to him, “Our party are now coming
trom Chesuncook.” He turned round and
said in a broad voice, on a high key, “Where
else could ye coom from, this gate?" He
had given me a damper, but 1 again said, “Are
you going down to Chesuncook pretty soon?”
He growled out, “Yes, I’ll be going down to
‘Suncook the day, I’m out of tobacco.” Of
course what little of the weed I had, was
forthcoming, and I gave it to him. He put it
in one of the numerous holes in his coat, but
it tumbled out though in a twinkling, and he
said as he picked it up and tried to find a bet
ter place for it, “That's the deevil of having
sae mony pocks in ane’s coat; there’s nae tell
ing where on airth things gae to.” Saying
which he placed the tobacco in some out-of
the-way place or other, and sat down in quite
a sociable way. “I’m building a birch up van,
and this,” pointing to the spruce-bark, “is to
get down to 'Suncook in.” A jug in the bow
of his canoe readily showed what he was go
ing down to ’Suncook for.
“Was it wet on the carry, yon ?”
“Oh yes, I believe there’s always a heavy
dew on Mud-Pond Carry, isn’t there?”
“lou're richt, me freen, but there's pree
cious little mountain-dew ever falls in my
gate, now!”
A shout from the rest of the party, who
had been more judicious than I, and had walk
ed more slowly, showed that the carrying is
almost over, and we shall soon be on the wa
ters of the Kast Branch Penobscot. “Dirty
Donnel” is recognized by both the guides, and
from his radiant countenance after his with
drawal with them just out of sight.it could be
seen that he had found a little Chesuncook
pretty near home. A little mountain-dew had
fallen in his path.
While we are packing our loads in the ca
noe, Donald is wondering why we are in a
hurry. “Why can't we stop and talk a bit?”
Our guides know better than we do, and so,
bidding an affectionate adieu to the unlaved,
we are sailing for Mud-Pond outlet. G.

To the People qf Maine:
An additional number of troops is required by tbe
exigency of tbe public service, ami if raised immedi
ately it is believed bv those who have tbe best means
of knowledge, that tbe war will he brought to a speedy
and glorious iaaue. Of thia number tbe President of
tbe United States desires aud expects that Maine
should furnish her proportion or quota.
Our gallant and patriotic State has done her whole
duty in tbe past, and she will not falter nor fail in tbe
present nor in tbe future.
That her material interests mar be protected and
advanced, that tranquility and peace mar be restored
throughout tbe land, that the Constitution and tbe
Union, which have been to us all the source of un
measured bleeaiugs, may be preserved; that Liberty,
of which they were tbe inspiration and are tbe selected
guardians, maybe saved, and that the light of one
great example tnay shine brighter and brighter, to
guide, to cheer ami to bless the nations. To aid in
all these I invoke of tbe people of this State a prompt
and hearty response to this new demand upon tbeir
patriotism; and may they all unite in the work that
is before them, each laboring in his own sphere, do
ing what he can by bis example, influence and sympa
thy— proferring His treasure, hit time, his strength,
bis heart, and nis highest hope to the cause or bis
country!
General Order* will be issued immediately, giving
authority for raising new Regiments of Infantrv.aud
for calling into actual service a portion of tbe tinuni

lit—That two additional Volunteer Regiments of
Infantry, for the service of the Government, be raised
and organized forthwith. The .Seventeenth will ren

The exigency of the creation is such that the utmost
expedition and vigilance is reqnired.
ad—Whereas the unnniformed Militia of tbie State,
constituted aa provided by chapter ten of the Revised
Statutes, and subsequent acta, is subject to active duty
"in case of insnrrection, war, invasion, or to prevent
invasion, or to be mustered into the service of the
United States, upon a requisition made upon the Gov
ernor and Commander-in-Chief by the President of
the United States, by virtue of the Constitution and
Acta of Congress,’’ and the exigency having arisen,
when the Governor and Commander-in-Chief is au
thorized and required to call the said ununiformed
Militia, or a portion thereof, into actual service; it is
ordered that the Major General of each Division in
this State take measures forthwith for the organi
zation of all the Companies of Infhntry from the en
rolled, ununiformed Militia of his command, by the
issue of orders forthwith to the Orderly Sergeants of
such companies to call out their companies without
delay, for the elections of officers, returns whereof are
to be made to the Adjutant General forthwith. After
the receipt of such returns, orders will be promulga
ted for the organization of two regiments of Militia
in each division, to be formed and constituted from
said companies by detachment or detail. It is ex
pected that this diitv of calling out companies and
electing officers thereof, will be performed in
the shortest possible time after the receipt of this or
der.
3d—All the members of the nnnniformed Militia

GENERAL ORDER. No. 17.
To the Major General* qf the Militia :
Accompanying this you will receive General Order
No. 16. with Proclamation* of Hit Excellency the
Governor, and recruiting papers and instructions to
be pnt into the hand* of the Orderly Sergeant or some
other person of each of the companies organized un
der your direction, w ith a request that they will en
list all such person* therefrom, or others, as may he
possible. For this service they will receive s suitable
compensation for each niau enlisted bv them and
mustered into the service of the United States.
The necessities of the service admit of no delay, and
it is most earnestly hoped that the several Major Gen
erals will see that the requirements of this order are
promptly executed, and the Orderly Sergeants or oth
er parties designated as recruiting'offirers will omit
no effbrt on their part to secure as many recruits ss
possible for the Volunteer Regiments.
As member* of the Militia will he called Into actual
service under the laws of the United States and of
this State, as Militia, for a period which in all proba
bility will bo quite as long a* that for which they
would be held as Voluuteers, the advantages to be de
rived by the soldier in volunteering, in tbe matter of
premium, advance pay, bounty, and other benefits,
are so great and obvious that it i* believed there will
be no Hesitation in enlisting as Volunteers, rather
than to serve as Militia, in which capacity they will
receive nothing but monthly wages, rations and cloth
in*.
Citizen soldiers! remember you haves country to
save, and you are the men who can reuder most "effi
cient aid in this holy ami patriotic work. To render
success speedy and certain, and to alleviate and
abridge tbe calamities of war, the President of ths
United States has requested this call to be ntada.
Tbe Coimnamier-iu-Chief does not doubt that onr
true-hearted soldiery will make such response as will
•till further illustrate the patriotism and devotion of
onr gallautand faithful State.

too well known to require more than a bare alluaion
to them, is one of the moat insidious, and therefore
dangerons, of all the long catalogue of human ills.
It saps the very springs of Life, rapidly undermines
tbn constitution, and sinks the unhappy victim into
imbecility and a premature grave! From one to three
boxes of the Specific Pill are sufficient to effret a per
manent cure in the most aggravated cases, whether
constitutional, or arising from Abuse or Excesses.

“ I have found them all that could be desired. Their
effect has been truly wonderful. I used them in a
