Lonely and desolate are the shores of
AntioostL . In winter they are blocked np
with ice nd whitened with mow, and in
ummer almost continually enveloped in
fogi. To all mariners who have occasion
to sail the Gulf of St Lawrence, they are
n perpetual terror, and the many ship
wrecks oocarring there have given to the
island a mournful celebrity. Two light
houses, lizhted from March to December,
and two provision depots aro the only lo
calities on the island where those who
may have escaped a watery crave can ol
tain succor from famine and cold, and the
most noted of these is the Bay of Ga
mach. It is about five miles in circum
ference the only really secure harbor in
the region, and derives its name from the
strange man who there first made himself
8 borne, irom ijagbeo to Uaspe, from
Gaspe to Piotou, not a name for many
years was better known, and the manifold
f torios picked ' up by the writer (during
his Canadian and New Brunswick wan
derings.) respecting him would fill a vol
ume. Ihey were extravagant, made up
if fact and fiotfon, representing him as a
liind of anoient mariner, a pirate, a being
half savage and half ogre, and enjoying
the special protection of Satin himself.
Hut tbe simple story of bis actual life,
well worth recording, is as follows:
Louis Oliver Gamaohe was born in
Lower Canada, in 1790. When a mere
boy he left his home and obtained a sail
or s berth on board an English frigate, in
whish capacity he spent about twenty
years of his life, roaming over the world.
Un his return he found his parents dead,
and himself friendless and poor. Having
. i ...ii . i .I, i I, i
airajeu inro mo utue port oi xvemouaai,
he tried his hand at business and failod.
Disgusted with people generally, and
nomewhat so with life, he resolved to set
tle on the island of Anticosti, whose lone
ly shores had taken his fancy captive,
when lost returning from his ocean wan
derings. Determined as he was to spend
the remainder of his days in the peaceful
enjoyments of hunting, fishing, and sail
ing, his sagacity led him to the bay al
ready mentioned. He built himself a
rude cabin, and then visited the main
shore to obtain a wife, in which effort he
was successful She was all he hoped
for, but the loneliness and cold of Anti
ooiti were more than her nature could
bear, and she died during her first spring
upon the - island. Summer came, and
Gamache sought for peace of mind by
sailing in his schooner among the ice
bergs of the North, and slaughteringthe
grey seal and walrus. With the money
thus made he ereoted some new buildings,
and gathered about his home a few of tbe
comforts of an ordinary farm, such aa
horses, cows, and sheep. He married a
second wife, with whom he spent the
seven happiest years of his life, but, on
returning home from one of his winter
hunts, he found her frozen to death, and
his two children so nearly famished, that
they soon followed their mother, and he
was once more alone. A kind of gloom
now settled upon his spirit, and, though
leading an active life, he became misan
thropic. He cared not to have any inter
course with his fellow-men, and his only
companion and confidant was a half-breed
Indian; but if a revenue officer, a pro--fessional
fisherman, or a party of sporting
characters happened to make him a visit,
they were sure to be treated with kind
ness. " He felt that death had robbed him
of all that he most dearly cherished, and
how did he know, was his mode of reas
oning, but some of his Indian neighbors
would prove treacherous, and take his own
li fe without warning; some band of pirates,
moreover, might hear of his forlorn condi
tion and sweep away his property and
murder him in cold blood. Those were
impending calamities and something must
be done tor crotection. Hence it was
that he resolved to adobt a series of
measures that would inspire a dread of
his person and name. He fully suc
ceeded in all his romantio offorts, and the
following are a few of the many with
which his name is associated:
On the oooasion, having been wind
bound for several days, he anohored his
vessel in one of the ports of Gaspe,' and
making his way to the village inn ordered
a sumptuous, supper for two persons.
The truth was, he was nearly famished,
and having caused his man Friday to be
supplied on board the .vessel, he had
determined to have a good feast and any
inn that might follow, j Before sitting'
down to his repast be gave special direc
tions that the door of tbe dining-room
must be locked,-and that it would be
dangerous to have him disturbed. He
devoured nearly every thing on the table,
and finally, falling into a deep sleep, did
not awake until morning. . Toe host and
some of his inquisitive neighbors were
moving about soon after daybreak, and a
number of them declared that they had
heard some mysterious noises during the
night, and when, the unknown guest
stepped out of the .dining-room into the
sunshine, and while paying his bill with
American gold talkea inooherently about
tho gentleman in black, the people who
hung about the house were amased; but
when the landlord told them of the empty
plates and platters,' and they saw the
stranger embark without uttering a word,
tbey were all confounded, and felt ocrtain
that the devil and an intimate friend had
visited their town, , ,
On another ooooasion, while spending
a day or two in Quebec, an officer of the
law boarded the tohoon'r of our hero for
the purpose of arresting him for debt
Gamaohe suspected what was in the wind,
and as the autumn was far advanood, and
he was prepared to leave for the gulf.
h told the officer that the captain would
soon be on board, and suggested gloss
of wine in the cabin below, by way of
killing time. The wine was good, and
the officer conoluded that he would oall
again to see the captain, as his business
was of a .private nature;' hut when he
ascended to the deok he found himtolf
voyager on the St Lawrenoe, and himself
in (no oustody ot his intended prisoner.
His loud storming and deep curses were
of no avail, for he was oompelled to visit
tbe Island of AntiooetL where he BDent
the entire winter feasting upon the fat of
tho land as well as of the sea. In that
spring, with a good supply of wine and
the money for his olaiin, he took passage
in a fishing vessel and returned, a "wiser
and a better man,", to Quebeo and the
bosom of his disconsolate family.
Even the offioers of the Hudson's Bay
Company were occasionally called upon
to measure their skill with the wit of our
friend Gamaohe. He would barter with
the' Indians on the Labrador coast, al
though he knew that the oonsequenoes of
oeing captured might De serious, easi
ness nad been brisk with him, and when
on a quiet summer afternoon be was about
leaving a little harbor on the forbid
den coast, he was discovered by an armed
vessel, whioh immediately started in pur
suit' Night came, and Gamaohe found
refuge in the harbor of Mingan. When
the morning light appeared, his enemy
was in the offing. Another obase ensued,
long and tedious, and night again settled
upon the waters; and then it was that a
rude raft was made and launched, oov
ered with a few tar barrels, and the
bright flames whioh soon illumined the
the ocean, directly in the oourse of the
frigate, oonvinoed its omoers that the run
away bad, eonsoienoe-strioken, gone to
the; bottom of the sea; but a better fate
awaited him, for he spent the subsequent
night in his own bed on the Bay of
Gamaohe. A '
On another occasion, when our hero
happened to be left entirely alone at his
house, he saw a stalwart Indian disenv
bark from his canoe andr with a bottle in
bis hand, march direotly tor tbe dwelling.
The movements of tho savaze, his fond
ness for liquor, and his well-known char
acter for fizhtintr. nortended trouble. As
he approached, Gamaohe planted himself
at the threshold ot his oostlo, rate in
hand, and exclaimed, "one step more, and
I will brer ' lho step was taken, but it
was the last, for a bullet shattered the
thigh bone of the savage. Thus reduced
to helplessness, he asked for quarter, and
was gratified. Gamaohe carried him into
the house placod him on a bed, doctored
his wound, and took every care of him
until the damaged leg was restored; and
then, loading the Indian with provisions,
escorted him to his canoe, with this part
ing benediction: "Wbennextyou hearthat
Gamache is alone, and attempt to give him
trouble, he will send a bullet through
your head; and now begone!" That les
son had its doe effect upon the entire tribe
of Aantioosti Indians. , '
One more incident touching the Wizard
of Anticosti is to this effect A young
pilot had been driven by stress of weather
into the Bay of Gamache. He had heard
much of the supposed free-bootcr, and
nothing but a desperate state of things
would have induced him to seek refuge in
that particular bay. A short time after
he had dropped anchor, Gamache came
out in a small boat and invited the pilot
to his house. Most reluctantly was the
invitation aeoepted, but a manifestation
of courage was deemed necessary. When
the guest entered the dwelling and saw
tbe walls ot ' each room covered with
guns, pistols, hatchete, cutlasses, and har
poons, his fears were exoited to the highest
pitcn. Uamaone observed all this, but
only enjoyed the stranger's Consternation.
A smoking supper was spread upon the
table, but even the moose-lip and the boa-
ver,s tail were only enjoyed by one of the
party; the lip of the other quivered with
exoitement, and his thoughts wore bent
upon the tale that would be told respect
ing his fate. He made a display of gai
ety; When the evening was waxing late
he rose to depart, and with manifest ex
pression of thankfulness offered his hand
to the host! "No, no! my friend," said Gam
ache, "you must not leave here; the sea is
rough, and tbe night is oold ana wet, and
you eannot leave the bay. I have a com
fortable bed up stairs, and to-morrow you
may leave, if still alive." The lost words
sounded like a knell, and up into the
chamber of death, as he supposed, as
cended the pilot. "You may sleep," con
tinued Gamache, as he handed his guest
a lamp, "as long and soundly as you can;
your bed is soft, for it is made of . the
down of birds I myself have killed, for I
am a good shot, and nevor miss my game."
For awhile the pilot guest found it impos
sible to quiet his nerves or to obtain any
sleep, but nature finally gave way and he
fell into a doze, whioh was anything but
refreshing. As the elook struck twelve
he was startled by a noise, and on open
ing his eyes there stood Gamache by the
bed-side, with a candle in one hand and
a gun in the other. "I see you are
awake," said he, "but why so very pale?
Yen have heard .undoubtedly, that I am
in the habit of murdering everybody who
tarries in my house, and. hanging the
gun upon two wooden pegs, "I have come
to give you a settler tor . tbe night
With this remark he displayed a bottle
of brandy and a tumbler, and after drink
ing the health of the pilot handed him
the glass and continued : "There, take a
good pull, it will make you sleep soundly,
and if Gamache comes to attaok you
during the night, you can defend yourself
with, the loaded gun hanging over your
head." And thus the joke endei Whtn
morning came the storm had disappeared;
and the pilot ana nis nost were quite as
happy as the day was bright '
And thus was it, as tbe mood came
upon him, that Uamaohe endeavored to
relieve the monotony of his self-inflicted
exile. His amotions seemed to have
changed his character; though certainly
without guile, a kind of passion for doing
out-of-the-way things followed him to the
close of his life, and garo him the unen
viable reputation he posessed.- But he
died in 1854, from the effoots of exposure
to the cold, and the ploasant bay , whioh
bears his name, is aDout tne only momo
rial he has left behind. ; ; ' , : ",
And bow for a few authentic parties
lara respecting the general character of
the Island of Antiooeti, as developed by
reeent explorations. ; It is one hundred
and thirty-six miles long, snd thirty-
six miles wide; a large- part of the
eoast has: a belt of limestone reefs
that are dry at low water, the south side
of the Island is generally low, but on the
northern coast there aro. hills and olifls
that attain an elevation of three, four, and
five hundred fee,' The only attempts at
cultivation that have been made art at
Gamaohe Bay, - Southwest Point: and
Heath Point, and the ohief agricultural 1
productions are potatoes,' barley, and
peas ' The forest land is abundant, , but
the trees are commonly small,' and even
dwarfish and peat or mossy bogs, abound
in every direction, Fruit-besrintr trees
and shrubs fere quite plentiful, but one of
tbe most valuable natural productions is
wild pea growing along the shore of the
ocean. The two principal rivers are the
Salmon and the .Jupiter, and all the
streams, as well as tho lakes, which ' are
numerous, are said to swarm with salmon,
salmon trout, and trout and the wild an
imals are the bear, the black, red, and
silver fox, and the marten. In the bogs
and more sheltered parts of the coast
seals are extremely abundant ' Besides
the harbor named for Gamaohe, but orig
inally called Ellis Bay, there is a harbor
called Fox Bay, but neither of them
would shelter vessels of more than five
hundred tuns burden. ; The island is
under the j urisdiotion of Lower Canada,
but is tbe private property ot a single
tamily residing in Quebec
Bonaparte's War-horse.
, .everybody bas seen a copy, in some
form, of the famous painting "Napoleon
Crossing the Alps,"and everybody doubt
less remembers the noble looking white
horse in the foreground, whioh bears
upon his back the young general of the
army of Italy, who leans upon the neck
of his rearing steed, and points to
the long lines of soldiers climbing by
tortuous paths the steep and rocky passes
of the Alps. This horse is not a mere
artist's ideal, but was intended as a por
trait of Napoleon's horse Superb. This
beautiful animal was a light grey Ara
bian, about 15 hands high, slightly but
compactly built, possessing remarkable
intelligence and musoalar power, ' com
bined with a nervous, active temperament,
and a strong and vigorous temperament
Superb was a great favorite with Napo
leon, and aocompanied him in many , of
his most successful campaigns." In 1813
during the disastrous retreat from ' Mos
cow, he was oaptured by the Russian
General OrlofF, who - kept - him at St
Petersburg till 1834, when he was pre
ented to the fatherjof M. Tourmiaire, the
manager of the imperial cirous, a passion
ate lover and aooomplished trainer of
horses, and well known for his devoted
attachment to the memory of the great
General Orloff, in presenting tbe horse,
said, "Jacques Tourmiaire, you were
greatly attached to tho lato Emperor of
tbe trench, and your attachment honors
you. iou are known to be a favorite ot
horses; and satished of the care -he will
reoeive at yotir hands, to you I confide
this, my greatest favorite. Superb is too
slight for use. 1 have grown too heavy for
bim. , To sell him to a strange master is
a fate to whioh I cannot think of sujeot-
ina him. To you, therefore, I entrust
him, and as you loved him to whom he
first belonged, you will, I am sure, cheer-
ish Superb for the memory of his owner,
as well as for his own sake." The horse
was well oared for by his new master,
who brought him upon the stage, and
taught him to perform some light parts in
pieces performed in the oircus. Jaoojues
Tounniarire died in 1839, and left Superb
to his son, who treated the veteran still
with the tenderest care. He was .subse
quently exhibited in London, and other
large cities. : .. . i -
Several years sinoe we read a short
history of this horse, published in an
English journal, and if our memory
serves us well, it was stated that he was
foaled in 1802, and died in 1841, having
lived to the extraordinary -of 39

Newstbao Abbbt as it is. Owine to
the death of the late owner, Col. Wildman.
Newstead Abbiy, the residence of Lord
l5yron, bas to be sold, and this grand old
ecclesiastical structure, around whioh
cluster so many historical associations,
will soon come under the hammer of the
auotioneor. The English papers think
that the Church of Borne will be found
one of the most active competitors at the
we first hnd mention ot "Aew-
stead'' in the year 1170, when a monastery
was lormed there by mug Henry u and
granted, with a Park of fifty acres, to the
canons regular of the Order of St Austin.
The religious fraternity appear to have
retained possession of the Abbey, and its
lands, until deprived of them by King
Henry VIII, who, in the year 1540,
granted them to John, afterwards Sir John
Byron. It continued in the hands of the
Byron family, qpd was their prinoipal
residence, until it came into the posses
sion ot tbe late Geo. Gordon, Lord Byron,
who sold itjn 1818 to Mr. Thomas Claw
ton, who re-sold it and its extensive Park
and appendages to the late proprietor,
Col. Wildman, for 100,000. The Colo
nel sreatlv imnroved tha asbikfl. . and
restored a large portion of the old build
ing; and a very considerable advance upon
the lost purchase money will, no doubt,
be obtained. A considerable portion of
the old Abbey is still remaining, partly
in ruin, and partly embodied in the
general architecture of . the , house.
The Churoh, originally a magnificent
structure, was generally allowed to link
into a condition of neglect and. dilapida
tion, though the south aisle was itweor-
uuruwu into, ami bmu rarms part ot 1 tne
building.: The cloisters exactly resemble
those of Westminster Abbey, only on a
smaller scale. The aisle ; is now ' a
thoughfare for the domestios; an exten
sive and anoient crypt under the clois
ters has for many years been used as the
cellerage of the house; the ohoir-rooms
transformed into a bath-room, and tlje
burial ground for the inmates of the
Abbey, is now an elegant garden, where
stands the famous pedestal of white
marble, ereoted by Lord Byron to the
memory of his favorite - Newfoundland
dog. .
