This species of the en?!e is much more com mon on the west coast of Sutherland than the gol den eagle. Scarcely a day passes m winter but on- or more are to be seen in front o this house (Loch Inver Inn.) soarinar in the air looking: out lr dead fish which may be cast on the sea beach bv the roarin? lid-. This seems to bo their prm- r- i..u:, u iih nrcnsinnillv a braxv ClOill IOOU aiun !ok"'i ; ' sheep for a change. In spring they secure a t .:r..i .nnl of tender fl-sh by devouring voung lambs; in summer they feast on fawns, voun hares, and the young of the different sea birdsrsqehas gull, gnllamots, puffins, &c, and m the autumn of the year they take to the shallow fords of the different rivers in search of salmon, which they secure in very shallow water, spaw in" Here you may see one or more seated on a rock, or a large stone, patiently awaiting his prey until an opportunity offers, when he will dart on it and bear it off to some secure place, thre to feed upon it. I one day waicttt-d one for five hours, sitting on the same' stone, till the evening closed in. when he left, no doubt for his resting place. Next morning I was in my old seat be fore daybreak. When scarcely clear enough to distinguish the stone, my old friend made his ap pearance. Here 1 again watched him for at least two hours; my feet were as cold as ice. I could not have slalki d him had I been willing, for the wind wa contrary, and eagles I knew to be as difficult to stalk as deer when the wind may be unfavorable; but even though the wind had been favorable I had another object in view, and that to see how he managed to secure his scalyprey. Suddenly he arose from the stone, and suspended himself "for a moment in the air, about twenty yaids from the surface ofth water; here he let his lews hang loosely from his body ; he then in stantly pounced on the fish, which appeared to be then in not more than a foot or so of water, and carried him off At this moment he was joined by a hooded crow, then by another and another, till they amounted to ten, one making a dart at him now, and another then, sometimes three or four at a lime, keeping up a noisome talk of caw, caw, evidently fearmg to strike, though often very near. This was no doubt tane in order to induce him to drop the fish, so th'-y might regale themselves at his expense. They now became so very troublesome and impudent that our no ble friend thought he could not proceed farther, so he alighted on the inp of a hillock close by, and there bade them defiance. Now 1 saw very lit tle chance for me to get near him, but thought I. would try, and after some little difficulty succeed ed in getting to within about 100 yards of him, but further I could not get, the ground being too even. After resting myself for a minute, and. looking out through a tuft of heather, I bethought myself of a plan which I had often heard proved successful in deer stalking. When a person stalks a deer to within 100 yards or so, and can not get nearer, which is often the case, lor want of uneven ground to screen himself, be is to cock his gun and watch the deer till he is looking some other way or feeding. Then he is to run at all his speed, and ten to one he gains some 20 yards. The deer hears him and looks round to see what it is. Then is his chance to fire; if there is more than one. this plan will not do, unless they are ly ing anl then he may gain 40 or 50 yards be fore they get up Returning to" my subject, the eagle, he had now begun to feed; my friends, the crows, seeing me and flying around me, and mak ing a great clamor. When his head was down, I ran at all my speed, gaing some 40 yards, and jttst as he was in the act of taking wing, I fired my right barrel at him, which brought a shower of feathers in my face and made him drop his fish. I then discharged my left barrel, but this did not stop him, however, he only flew a hund red yards when he dropped down quite dead. By this lime my old grey friends had dispersed, and 1 was left alone with the fish, which was a salmon, as red as alox, and would have weighed above six pounds. In the year 1845 my friend, D. Gilchrist, Esq , of Ospeldale, had an eagle of this species, which ' he kept in a house in his garden for wore than- 2 years. His feeding being rather expensive, cost ing him in that time at least one hundred sheen i cp j . :u T -. r ne onerea mm to me, which j.nccepiea. Ihrouoht u: i j i t -i :-,4 . s 1 1 una uome, una nau nun biiuiiieu uciuna mv sta oie, leeaing mm wun less expensive iooa, trout or pike, which I caught on Lo'ch Migdale, a g behind Bonar Bridge. This food he did not anew io reusu mucn, prcieriing uesu iu usn, no doubt from being so accustomed to tender sheep He became rather sociable, but never tame enough to justify his being let loose. There were sever al cats that came to visit him, andUo share with him in his fish meals. Three of those he manag" ed to kill and eat, though 1 had never an oppor tunity of seeing how he managed to capture them, but supposed that they had ttome to steal away some of his fish, and he having somehow got hold of them with his powerful talons, made them pay for their impudence by forfeiting their lives. This may be inferred from the following cir cumstance, which took place soon afterwards: -Ah old gent, a Mr. Rogers, a friend of niinet came to visit me at Bonar Bridge. He had a fine bull terrier which was nnmed Guard, and which . he said was one of the bravest dogs in Scotland. I asked my friend to come and see the eagle, Guard wiiowmg us. From the way which Guard lodlrv j thought he would like to have a shy at the eaSle- I asked my friend to take the dog by the - I - I I r - a -1 xr 1- i nr1 w what he would do with the hirrf liar, ' J looked rather shy at the bird, and so did ihe Guard, as much as to say you have no bu- .; here. I asked the dog- io be let loose to see wh it he would do1 when my friend replied, ;f hp is let loose, he will kill the eagle in an in stant. My rep'y vva3 "Never mind," well krow- in that it was mucu ensier saia man uone. uuara r.T let loose, and, in an instant sprang- on the ea gle, salving a whole mouthful of feathers out of him: out in auempung 10 sci anoiner mouintui the e:ig'e got hold of Guard by the neck with one of his alons, then on the side with the other, Guard crvinar and howling in a most pitiful manner all the while. Poor Guard would not have lasted long were we. not so close to him, and by chok ing the eagl'i ad with the assistance of pliers succeeded in rescuing the poor dog. The claws of the eagle met in the dog's neck. I really be have if he had been left for fifteen minutes longer he would have made a good meal of the brave Gua'd. There is scarcely a precipitous rock or high headland on this coast where one or more of this species d not breed. They also build in the islands of fresh water lakes, and in the high rocks which overhang many of the inland seas. The nest is composed of sticks and moss. When sticks are nut convenient, they supply the place with dried tangles and seaweed. They lay two white eggp. with sometimes a few small red spots on the round end. The eggs are about the size of the golden eagle's, but more oval in form. In the wild state this eagle is said to be more partial to fish than flesh, and on the many solitary streams in this country they fin?d luxuriantly on large bull trout and salmon, which they take on their spawn ing beds. ' - I have repeatedly taken the eggs of this species from their nests, which are in general much more acc sfible thno that of the golden eagle, though in some instances equally as difficult. Stonehead, Capi vyralh, Farouthopt, Whilenhead, and Dun- neth'-ad, are sure to have one or'mnre pairs breed ing in their rocks every season. My fnend, John VVooley, Esq., of Derbyshire, an indefatigable nat uralist' and thorough gentleman, visited the north l:st 4pril in search of rare bird's eggs. I acci dentally met him at the hotel in Thurso, and next day accompanied hun to the eagles nest at Dun- neihead. On our way thither he spoke of going down the rock for the eggs, but, pardon me, I thought he had come fiom too tame a country to think of going down such an awful precipice. Duunethead is a tork to the east of Thurso, and is at least 400 fei.t high, and where the white swelling breakers resound against the roeks in' awful magnificence. Indied, few men can ven ture to look over the piecipice. However, if my friend did not choose to go down for the pggs, I would, and volunteered to go for him, -but he de clined my off.?r, and would rather go himself. We had brought rop s from Thurso sufficiently strong to liuld a bullock, and throe men to hold on, whilst I was to stand on the brink of the rock to see how he g't dnwn, and give directions to the men above. I lashed him secure to the rope, and down he went, and in a few minutes to my delight held one of the eggs in his hand. After, collecting a few of the materials of which the nest was com posrd. I gavedirections to the men above to haul upy'rien be oon arrived safely at the top. Mr. Wc-tlev went down many rocks equally difficult afieU'ards. Indeed, I think lie would undertake to ct) tin or down many rocks in the country, how ever high or inaccessible, were an eagle's nest of feree him as the pnz . The length of an adult female is thirty-three incbes. the male considerably shorter: the breadth of fring frequently eight feet; the beak light, horn and eyes yellow; the body ashey giey ; tne legs, bare below the knee-joint, straw-yellow col or, large and scaly ; claws black. Young birds have the whole of the body a lignt orowmsn p;rev: tail brown, tail feathers edged with grey : the, white tail does notapp'-ar until the third year. Twosoecimens are in mv collection, the one an old grey bird with a tail as white as snow, the other ayoungfem tie two years o'd, as described above. Cor. of BeWs Life in London. FIUTE FBl'IT TREES.

The undersigned has for many years been collecting and condensing the material for this work. The archives of our own State have linen rrof..il pious extracts made from its records.

Rare and valuable works have been purchased from abroad, touching the early history of our State, and each County, which have never seen tbe light.

This record is now covered by the dust of age, and unknown by neglect. It is a debt which the r'" gcuBmuon owes to tne past as well as the luture to preserve these memorials; for it often occurs in the history of our race, that facts known to one generation are controverted by the next, and at a succeeding period are considered as doubtful legends, unworthy of histori cal faith.

This work will be illustrated with a Map of the State, roin latest surveys and including the new Counties to this date, and sketches in Engravings of some of her beautiful scenery.
