KENDALL'S RIDE WITH JACK
Did you ever hear of George Wilkins
Kendall's ride with Jack Everitt? It
occurred in Camargo, shortly after the
battle of Monterey. Jack is a notorious
Indian fighter and border ranger, and is
as well known aling our southern fron
tier as Col. J ick llays. himself. 11- is a
particular f, i -nd of Col. Kintey's, the
founder of Corpus Chiistie, and had
accompanied the litter in some of the
dusperate forlys upon the Indians and
A1lexicans made by him during the !at
lier stages of his settlement at that place.
Kendall had heard a great deal of Jack
Everitt, both from MlcCullough's Ran
geri and Col Kinney, and had frequent
ly expressed a wish to ser him and con
verse with lum. Consequently, as soon
as the Colonel saw Jack conic galloping
into Camargo, he brought him to Ken
dall's quinters and introduced him.
George w:as delighted with thre appear
ance of Jack, and said that he had fre
qjently heard of him, and was glad to
make the acquaintance of one so re
nowned fir his deeds of gallantry and
skill. Jack, beine about '-half-srapped,"
grasped the proffered hand and exclaim
i"George Kendill, ei? George Ken
dall of the Picayune, (h ? Well, I've
heard ofyou often enough, and I'm very
glad to see you-you look like'a trump!
What do you say, old fellow, let's have
it turn round ! I know all about these
parts, and can show yousomething more
than you think of. Will you come?
This was just whit Kendall wished,
and he at once acceded to Jack's request
and the lter brought up his horse, an
old gray, blind one eye, but poWerfully
"There, do you see that horse1"
said Jack. IlHe's a tall kind of horse.
Kinncy gave him to me,.and he .knows
*'i at a hotse is. lie's not much to lok.
at, but once git him a gotng and he'l.
go throtigt helitseIif7you put hiln atit.
aet .qp,A~eq IN 'l opt- WMilid,
andsaidi e 'ildalk' if Jk 'uld
ide biutthiis ick would not hir-of
and after some slight argument, Kendall
finally gave up'the point and niounte'd
the old grey while Jack got on behind.
Gen. Patterson was at that time Gov
ernor of Camargo, and had issued an
ordor that no peison should ride through
th,e plaza faster than a walk, and the
sentries posted around said plaza were
ordered to stop. all persons who should
attempt to exceed the prescribed gait.
Kendall was aware of this order, and
when ie took the ieins of the old gray
horse, had no apprehensions of his run
ning away from him. But Jack, who
was behind him, wore a pair of large
Mexican spurs, and, wishingito show the
running cabilities of his horse to Ken
dall, he clappO his spurs into his sides,
and ff went the old gray at a tremen
dous pace, straight for the plaza. Ken
dall tugged and pulled at the rein, but
in vain; the old fellow had got the bit in
his mouth and the spurs in his sides,
and there was no such tning as stopping
"Jack, for God's sake help nie to stop
him I" shotuted Kendall, turninag his
head round and casting an appealing look
at Jack, who was digging his spurs into
the horse's sides, "Help me to pull him
up, wont you ?"
Jack was a little deaf, as well as
drunk, and thinking that Kendall wae
praising the horse, only answered, "He
is a tall kind of horse !"
"Yes ; but he is going right .for the
plaza,*' said Kendall, in a feverish state
of excitenment. "Help me stop him ot
the sentry mnay shout one or both of US,"
"Kinney gave him to be," muttered
Jack, still under the impression that
George was admiring the hot se's p)ace.
By this time they had teachied the
plaza, and the sentry's bright niusket,
gleaming in te moon's rays met Kent
"J .:ck-I say, Jack, catch hold of the
infernal rein, will you? 'I can't hold
him, and the sentry will fire ! Help me,
will you ?"
"Ohi," says Jack, lie hasr,'t got up to
the top of his speed yet. liHe's a tall
kind of horse [ tell you!I"
Dig wvent the spuis into the horse's
sides, and away flew the old grey across
the plaza,'and was ought of sight before
the-sentry had time to cock his musket.
Kendall now determined to stop. the
horse at all hazaids, and seeing a large
pile of adobos (sunburunt brick) lying in
the middle of the street, he put tho.old
grey's head in that direction, anid ran
him directly into the centre of the heap,
Away flew Kendall and Jack inTone di
rection, and away went the old grey i

RECOVERED LAKE.-A singular acci
dent occurred on the Mkichi.,an central
railway, It became necessary to carry
grading or embankments of fifteen feet
high acioss a low piece of ground con
taining about 100 acres, nearly dry
enough for plowland. When they had
progiessed with the grading for some
distance, it became too heavy for the
soil to support, the crust of the earth
broke in, and the embankment sunk
down into seventy-nine feet of water!
It appears that the piece of ground had
been a lake, but had collected a suil of
oots, peat, muck, &c. on i:s surface, ap%
parently from 10 to 15 feet thick which.
had become hardened ard dry enough
fot farm purposes. Mr. Brooks thought
it would have supported an emtankment
of five feet in thickness, and that if it
had not been necessary for them to have
one much heavier, it would have sup
ported the road, and the fact might
never have been discovered that it rested
on the sutface of a lake.-N. Y. Sta,

Beware of Counterfeit8.-We have ber
fore us a spurious Twenty Dollar Note of
the Bank of Ge'orgetown, and understand
that a number of theot are in circulaion in
Columbia and in Alabama.
To guard the public as much as possible
against them, we n ill explain. as 'ar as in
our power, how the counterfeit tan be
disiinguished from the genuine. The pa
per on which the counterfeit is printed is ''
dakand harsh-the vignette of the female
at ihe cop and centre, and :noreespecially
cte ship in the distance, are badly execu
ted-the numerals XX, end the general
engraving has also a darker shade. Thte
signature of cte Cashier is wvell done, and
that of the President passably, although
more lightly written on the spurious thans
he genuitne. 'rThe counterfeit is made
payable to A. G. Rosa. This gentleman- .
is t he Cashier of thte Charleston Bank, and
the name has been probably inserted in
this case witht deceptive views.
To those who are not critical in their
knowledge hs to counterfeits, and have no
genuine note oJf the samte denomination
before them, we would suggest that the
paper and the vignette and ship are the .
most distinguishtable marks by which to '
judge whteter the note is counterfeit or -
