VERMONT WATC1IMAN & STATE JOURNAL, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 0, 1802.
7 n (Sencral. ( hltipsc Money. One of Ihe most troublesome ques tlorjt to contenri wilh in traveling lo Cbloa is thnt of money. As is wcll known, tho Chlncae have no other cur rrncy than thc copper cnsh, ahout lif tern bundred of which aro worlli at Pi kitig a ChtllSH ounce of ptlM silver, called by foreigncra a " tacl of sycee." Silver in nnturally used in commcrcial traniactlom, butns bulllon only, and by weight, bo evcry ono has to have a lel of'sinnll scalcs. Tlie inconvenieuce that this wcighing cntails would be coniparativo:y small werc all these scnles throughout Ihe empire uniform, but sucb it Dot the case. They diffir considcrably from one town to auolb(;r, nnd even In tlie same locality. Thus Bt PeklDg there a governruent stand ai d, a ninrilime customs standard, and a commcrcial standard. The sarae di versity is found ovcr all the ernpire, and the consequent complicatioiiB and evcn serious loss in exchange are a con tinual vexalion. Nor is it possible to c capc this Iobb by carrying copper caah witli one; for, putting aside thcir ex cessive weight, there ia not even a etandard cash in China. Those UBed at T'ientsin are not used at Pcking; thoRe nt Pekiug nre not current, exc.ept at a discount, at T'aivuan. Ilere I bougbt a very debHsed kind of cash, giving one " iarge cash " for four of them; a hun drcd miles farthcr south these small cash were at par, and even, in a few cases, at a slight preraium over the in trinsically more valuable large ono. Tlie Mongols, Tibetans, and Turkcs tancse have never consented to use the Chinese copper cash, although it iB the standard money of the realm. The flist-uanied peonle use silver ingots or brick tea, the otbers have a silver cur reney of thcir own. Century. ( arlyle anil llie Hrlrte.

I was Bligbtly built ar.d ten or eleven years of age when I discovered tbat a tlock of wood ducks frequented the creek. I resurrected the old family flintloek musket, which family tradition said had seen service iu ihe War of the Revolution, and had bcen used in the war of 1S12 in the en deavor to repel the BrltUh, when Buff alo was burned. The llint was gone. I searched the field where I had sei-n flint Indian arrow-heads, and found one out of which I manufactured a passable flint for the old gun. I obtained some blasting powder from a neighbor and crusbed it fine. For shot I cut some pieces of lead to a suitable size, wadded the powder and shot lirmly with tow. I proceeded to the creek, crawling ibroogb the Bbort brush as only a boy or rabbit can do, trailing the old mus ket, which was so heavy I could barely with the exercise of mucb will power bring to my sboulder. Arriving near the point wbere I believed the ducks were located, I carefully raised my bead above the brush. The ducks rose. I brought the old gun to my sboulder and pulled the trigger. The old miiBket went off and so did I head over heela, seeing stars the names of which I never knew. I picktd myself up with a bruised Bhoulder anda bloody nose, and the old musket, good for further Bervice, and five ducks! Stars, bruises and bloody nose were forgotten. Gloryl I guess I huzzaed. And was I not the hunter of hunters among my mates, of whoru there were many? Over a half century has paseed since I made that ehot, to me then a famous one. Yes, but where are those mates? Of them all, I alruost alone rcmain. A Corres- pondent, in Forest and Stream. Pheasants and Partridirc. The Prince of Wiiles and eight com panions put in b-ss than five hours of phcasant Bhooting on a recent occasion and secured a bag of 2,2.'!0. So much for the ineubator Bystem of hatchlng game birds and the battue system of cecuring them for market. But one well-educated shot-proof American par tridge has more game wrapped up in his feathcrs than a barnyard roll of such English pheasants; and when a man has chased around throuah the bruoh for hours after the old bird and (inally laid hands on it, he trudges bome with a vastly richerstore of Bntisfactiou than an avcrage of 49.0311 pbeasants per hour can ever give the parlicipant in a bat tue. Forest and Stream. Keparteo in the ( lassrooin. A nienilwr of the riarvard class of 1810 is reaponaible for the following; Tho elucidator of the mysteries of cbcmistry v;vs then Profcssor Job Cook, a very eedate man and never intention ally guilty of a joke. One day, in a rocitation, he said to a Btudent, "Mr. Slack, how do you slack lime?" The student, supposing the pnn upon bla name to bo intentional, answered quick as a fla.sb, "Oook it, sir." Of course the class roared, bnt in Btead of enjoying the apt reparteo tho professor took it aa a poraonal affront and reported Mr. Slack for a repriuiand. Boston Herald. Duek Canneries. A Captain Dellaas, just back from a gold-hunting t rip in Alaaka, suggests that somebody might make a fortune by starting a cannery for wild geeae and ducks at the niouth of the Yukon river, where the fowl congreiiate in im mense numbers in the spring of the year. We print this for the edificatton of the esteemed correppondent who wrote from Paris the otber day that he would be ghid to see sport with the gun put an end to in Ameriea. A few of Captain De Jlaas' springtime duck can neries, judiciously established at the rigbt points iu the far north, would solve once and forever the spring shoot ing question. Forest and Stream. Two Mcn and a Bear. I was a boy of teu yearB. My father and family resided in New Brunswick, where the Digdigquash Hiver met the ocean. But few settlerB were there, and the forest primeval stood around the dwellings of those few. Bears were plenty, and, like all bears, fond of rnutton, aometimes chasing the sheep even to the doors of the inhabitanta. Many had been victima of the huuter's gun, yet their number apparently had not diminished. One day my father and a neighbor of the name of McLean were crosBing the river in a log canoc, when they discovered a bear swimming in the same direction. Dexteroualy plying their paddleB, they came be tween him and the place where he in tended landing. This cut-off enraged the animal, which immediately made for the canoe, putting one paw on its low gunwale. A smart blow with the edge of a hardwood paddle made the fellow relinquish his grasp. After a good dcal of hustling, McLean man- aged to get hold of the bear's hind legs, boldingone on eacb side of the stern of the canoe, father, at the eame time, with his paddle keeping the craft up rigbt unitl the creature was drowned, and thus the game was secured. He was a large brute and a very old of fender. Forest and Stream. " Snljfgering " and Guddllag." I never heard the term" sniggering " used in England for what is bere said to be " jigging," but bave always heard " snatching " for this proceBB. "Snig gling " is a method of catchiug cels by ruans of a needle pa8ed into a worm. " Trimmering " is a set liue with one or two hooks for Olh of prey. " Leis tering " is a form of spearing. "Tick llng," or iu Scotland "guddling," is the taking of trout from beneatb a bank by tlokltng the belly with the llngers aud theu suddenly claspiug the fish and tln owing it out. " Bobbing " is catchiug eels with a clot of worms threaded on worsted. " Dibbling," " daping," " dop ing," are convertible expressions for the use of the real inscct inBtead of the artificial in fly-fishing. " Lobbing " re fers to thc use of a bunch of the ordinary garden wormB on the hook. Doubtless there are other elegant tcrms in the vocabulary of the semi-poacher, but I do not recnll them uow. "Guddling" is distinctly " heathenish," it strikes mc. A Correspondent, in Forest and Stream. Makk matters of care malters of prayer. This is the wisdom of the anxious.

The deprivations of tbequcen'a life aro pathetically illustrated by an incident which occurrod not long ago. An Amer ican l.idy seut her majesty an immenso collection of the flowcis of this conntry, prcssod and monnted.

Whilo Parker Gillmoro was in Gasa Land ho was ono day taking an aftor noon rost, when Sumlay, his faithful Zulu goide, came hurrying into tho in rlosure, his conntonanco fairly shininjj; with pleaaorable exeitement. Ho had fonnd a blaok rhinororos aslooii in an opcn glado not far from the catnp, and withont waking tho leaRt hal hastenetl to his maater. Mr. txilmore donnod his Bhooting clothes and set ont eagorly in search of tho long desirod game. He desorilios tho fray as follows: Our course lod ns througli hoavy timbor till tho moro opcn lands were roaelied. Theso were skirted througli grass nnd brnah almost up to my hips for a distanco of alxmt 200 yards, when my attendant en joined upon me the strictest silence. From tho expression of his countenance I folt sure that the game was not far distant, and I was not without fear that the foolhardineaa of my man might bring me olosor to the dangerous arrimal than was deairable. Boon wo haltod and listened. All was silent to my oar oxcopt the occasional utterance of an unknown bird a rhi noceros bird, as aftorward appeared. A sliort farthor advtmce rewarded us with a sight of the foathered stranger, whioh was about the size of the EnglLsh starling. Evory few seoonds it ascend ed abont twonty feet, nttered its call and at once returned to it jierch. Just then I bocame aware of a now lotmd. It resembled tho heavy breath ingof a large animal when aaleep. Kun day called my attention to it by placiug his hand beside his ear, but I had al ready heard it. My guide again motioned metofollow him, and I followed for several yards. Then another halt took place. Sunday was all exeitement, Still he did not lose his aelf posseasion, for by pantomimic action he expreaaed a wish that i should substitute new percussion caps for those already on tho nijiides of my rifie. That there was danger enough I was thoroughly oonvinced. There was neither rock nor tree near that could afford tho loast shelter if my aim was fanlty and the rhinoceros chose to at tack us. However, it was a case of "in for a penny. in for a pound." I indioatod tn Sunday that I was ready for the fray. He broko with a sharp, quick movement a branch of a bnah, and almost at the same instant the rhi- nocero stood before me, not ftftoen yards distant. Tho tirst action of the huge, nnwioldy boast was to tum his head to the wind ward. This movement prevented my getting tbe ahot 1 aeaired, and I waited for perhaps mioor two minutes. Then tho ponderooa bead came ilowly around. I raiseil my rille, mado due allowanco for the ihortneaa of the rango and preaaed the trigger. The usual crash ing sound annonnced the atriking ot tho bnllet, and then began a sceno which beggars di srription.
