EVENING STAK
THE SMITH OP BAGEHBACK.
In the Principality of Hohenlohe, Lauiren
burg, i.? a village called Ragenbach, where
about twenty year* ago the Mowing heart
rending but heroic event took place One af
ternoon in the early spring or autumn, my
kind informant did not exactly know which
in the tavern-room of Rsgenbacb, several men
and women having assembled from the vil
lage, sat at their ease, none anticipating what
would happen on that eventful day The
smith formed one of the merry company, a
strong, vigorous man, with a resolute counte
nance and daring mein, but also with such a
good natured smile upon his lips that every
ono who saw him admired him Every evil
disposed person shunned him, for the valiant
smith would allow nothing wrong in bis pres
ence. and it was not advisable to have any
thing to do with him except in a proper man
ner. His arms were like oars of iron, and his
fists like forge hammers, so that few could
equal bis strength of body.
Ihe brave smith sat near the door chatting
with one of his neighbors, I know not what;
all at once the door sprurg open, and a large
dog came staggering into the room, a great,
strung, powerful beast, with a ferocious, fright
ful aspect, his head was hanging down and
his eyes bloodshot, his red colored tongue
h inging balf-way out of his mouth, and his
t;?il dropped between his legs. Thus the fe
rocious beast entered the room, out of which
there was no escape but by one door. Scarce
ly had the smith's neighbor, who was bath
keeper of the place, seen the animal, when he
became deathly pale, sprang up and exclaim
ed with a horrid voice, ''Good Heavens, the
dog is mad !"
Then rose an outcry ' The room was full
of men and women, and the foamiug beast
stood before the only entrance ; no one could
leave without pissing him. He snapped sav
agely right aud left, and no one could pan
him without being bitten This increased the
horrible confusion. All sprang up and shrank
from the furious dog with agonising counte
nances Who should deliver them from hiui ?
The emith also stood among them, an J as he
f iw the anguish of the neople, it flashed across
his mind how many of nis happy and content
ed neighbors would be made miserable by a
mad dog. nnd he formed a resolution, the
like of which is scarcely to be found in the
history of the human race for high-minded
r.ess and nobleness. Certainly hit brown
cheek paled a little, but his eyes sparkled
with divine fire, and an elevated retolution
shone from the smooth brow of the simple
minded man
"Back all!" thundered he with bis deep
strong voice. 44 Let no one stir, for no one can
vanquish the beast but I. One victim must
full in order to save all. and I will be that
victim, I will hold the brute, and whilst I do so,
make your escape " The smith had scarcely
spoken these words, when the dog started to
wards the shrieking people. Hut he went not
far 44 With God's help !" cried the smith,
and he ru?hed upon the foaming beast, seized
him with an iron grasp, and daahed him to the
door.
Oh, what a terrible struggle followci ' The
dog bit furiously upon every side in a most
frightful manner, liis long teeth tore the
arms and thighs of the heroic smith, but he
would not let him loose Regardless alike of
(he exces-ive pain and the horrible death
which must ensue, he held down with an iron
grasp the snapping biting, howling brute un
til all bad escaped ! ? till all, all were rescued
and in safety. He then flung the half atrangied
beast from him against the wall,,and dripping
with blood and venomous foam, he left the
room, locking the door after him Some per
sons shot the dog through the windows Hut
oh ! merciful God, what will become of the
brave, unfortunate smith ?
Weeping and lamenting, the people sur
round him. who had saved their lives at the
expense of his own 44 He quiet, my friends,
do not weep for me,"' be said, " one must die
in order to save the others. Do not thank me.
for I have only performed my duty. When I
nm dead think of me with love, and now prav
for me that God will not let me suffer l ing .or
too much. I will take care that no further
mischief shall occur through me. for I must
certainly beoome mad. He weiit straight to
Lis workshop, and selected a strong chain, the
heaviest and firmest from his whole stock lie
then, with his own hands, welded it upon his
own limbs and around the anvil so firmly that
no power on oarth could break it 44 Tbere,"
??aid he. "its done," aftor silently and sol
emnly completing the work. 44 Now you arc
secure, and inoffensive, so long as I live, bring
me my food. The rest I leave to God : into
his hands I commend my spirit." Nothing
could save the brave smith, neither tears, la^
mentations and prayers Madnoss seized
him, and after nine days he died ?but truly,
he died only to awake to a more beautiful
and glorious life at the right hand of God He
died, but his memory will live from genera
tion to generation, and will be venerated to
the end of time.
Search history through, and jou will find
no action more glorious and sublime than the
deed of this simple minded man, the smith < f
Ragenbach It is easy for noble minds to die
liko Winkelreid or Martius Curtiun, the high
spirited Roman youth?but to go to the sacii
fice with the certainty of death. and moreover,
being obliged to wait a death so awful, during
long fearful hour- and days?that is to die
not once but a thousand times. And such a
death was that of the smith of Ragenbach
Such a sacrifice the smith of Rugenbach made
in order to save his neighbors. May the mem
ory ever be sacred ?Practical Christian
Bayfield, Wisconsin
As this prominent point seems to be attract
ing the attention of capitali?t^, we copy the
following extract from a recent article in the
Pioneer and Democrat published at Sf
Paul, Minnesota Territory, which appears to
have been the impression made upon the edi
tor of that paper from a recent trip made
along the shores of Lake Superior and the
country bacK of it:
4' On the main land, opposite La Pointi, is
located the town of Bayfield, named after a
British naval officer who mado the first eom
plete survey of Lake Superior This point
was platted as a town in May or June, of the
present year, and has grown with aniasing
rapidity since. When we were there, fr >m
twenty to twenty-five building* of a good jlass
were erected, while others were in process of
building. Bayfield bids fair to become a very
prominent commercial point It is the east
ern terminus of the proposed railroad to run
from the interior of Wisconsin to the lake, by
the way of the St. Croix valley, for the con
struction of which a heavy grant was made
by Congress at its last session. Its original
proprietor was the Hon H M Rice, who has
since associated with him several gentlemen
of wealth and energy. During the summer
a wagon road has been made from Bayfield,
connecting with the roads threading the St
Croix valley, and furnishing the only wagon
road now open from St Paul to Lake Supe
rior. Among the important improvements now
in progress, is a steam saw-mill, which is now
in operation, and when completed, will cost
from fifteen to twenty thousand dollars, and
and which will prove of great advantage to
that point and the adjoiningsastion, inasmuch
as the greater part ot the lumber used during
the present season has been brought there
from Detroit. A hotel is also under contract
to be built this fall, at a cost of eight thou
sand dollars. The natural advantages of Bay
field, whioh are great, it will thus be seen,
are being developed in the most ripil anw
substantial manner, by it* energttin propt'e
tors. Another year will place thi* p'?int
among the most flourishing on the soatii -bore
of Lake Superior "

A Commercial Experiment.
(From the Europeaa Time*, September t?.J
A great and original experimant has been
successfully realised during the last few days,
which cannot fail to have a considerable in
fluence ia the expansion of the trade between
Great Britain and tbe Far West of America?
an experiment, we do not hesitate to say, only
'.nferior to the introduction of steam as a con
necting link between Europe and the New
World This experiment will save hereafter
the transhipment of grain grown in the im
mense districts abutting on tbe great Ameri
can lakes, by which there will be not only a
large saving of expense, but, what is hardly
of less importance, the article will be brought
to the British market in a much higher st^te
of perfection than it has hitherto been
The Dean Richmond, a rakish schooner, of
380 tons regi.-ter. is now in the Liverpool docks:
her length is Uo feet, beam 26 feet, depth of
hold 12 teet. bhe draws nine and a half fee!
ot water. This clipper schooner has just com
pleted a most successful voyage across tbe At
lantic, bringing direct from the port of Chica
go, on Lake Michigan, in (ha State of Illinois,
without breaking bulk. 40(1 tons of grain,
which she has delivered from the ship ? side
exac'iy she received it. A direct voyage
like ;iiis. which eaves transhipment at Buffalo
or New York, must, it is clear, pour into Lag
land tbe produce of the northwestern State i
of the I nion by way of the St Lawrence at a
price which cannot fail to add to the trade
und wealth of both countries
The rapid rise of Caicago, the port of de
parture of the Dean Richmond, is a significant
prJof of the teeming agricultural resources of
that portion of the United States. lu 1 >32 it
contained only 250 inhabitant!; it now oon
taing 104 000 Tfte shipments of grain from
this place last year aloue amounted to two
millions and a fourth of quarters - the largest
which has ever been despatched from a single
port in any part of the world; while the ex
ports of pork were 77,000 barrels, and of bee;~
56,000 barrels The canal will not at present
admit tbe pa^sige of larger vessels, but even
as regards this teature the future is hopeful
for a moderate expenditure of capital would
admit vessels cf three times the tonnage of
the Dean Richmond, and with the induce
roeuts thus offered there cannot be a doubt
that the improvement will be made.
In point of time and cheapness this nee
route, thus brought into play, will compete
very successfully with the New York or the
Black Sea routes, by both of which large quan
tities of graiu and flour reach this oouatry.
The Dean Richmond, we are informed by her
owner, bas in*de the entire pastage in sixty
Jays, which iucludes 2,500 miles of inland
waters; but she had a detention of twelve
days in the St Lawrence, whioh is not likely
to oocur again. The canal and ship dues are
most moderate ; while there are no port, light
or pilotage dues on the inland seas of America
The number of hands through which the
goods pass in the interior transit to New York,
lor transhipment across the Atlantic, adds
largely to the cast of freight and commission,
and to the manifest deterioration of tbe gooo j
?items of expenditure which will be avcldeJ
by the direct course which the Dean K'ehmond
his traversed The great commercial resu.i
waich cannot fail to flow fr0? this nowel ex
periment have made tbe Dean Richmond an
objcct of coonsiderable interest in the port of
Liverpool; bat the tim* is not distant when
thia novelty will cease ; for tbe cla-s of vessels
whioh will rush into the trade are> eiaot.y
those which can be cheaply and readily sup
plied. _
