One of the moat interesting relics on exhibition in the office of Secretary of State Crockett is the rifle which was presented by admiring friends to his great-grandfather, the immortal Davy Crockett, hero of the Alamo, and author of the equally immortal phrase, “Be sure you are right and then go ahead.” This gun was carried by the grandson of the first owner, the late Gen. “Bob” Crockett, who brought down much game with it, but now it has been retired with honor and full pay to pass the re mainder of its days, or centuries, as a relic of one of the greatest characters this country has ever produced. It is a formidable-looking weapon, orig inally of the flint-lock type, with a 40-calibre bore. The barrel was originally 46 inches long, but some of it has been cut oft and it is now only 40 1-2 inches. It was presented to David Crockett soon after his second election to congress in 1829, by some of his admiring young Whig friends of Philadelphia. It cost 8350 and was made especially for him. The donors raised the money by contributing half a dollar each to the fund. The stock is trimmed in sterling-silver, appropriately designed with figures of the Goddess of Liberty, a raccoon, a deer’s head, and other figures. Along the upper part of the barrel are the letters, set into the metal in gold, some of which has worn out, “Presented by the Young Men of Philadelphia to the Hon. David Crockett of Tennessee.” In similar, letters near the muzzle are the woi/Cfs, “Go Ahead.” COAL! COAL!! COA td!! Call 21-2 rings and leave your order for coal. Full weight and prompt de livery.
