A Roinanec of Real Life.
A correspondent of the Cincinnati
Commorcial writes from Newdastle, ti
Ky.: s o
"I write this letter in the house of r
an old lady who is a niece of that Re. tl
becca Bryan who becaie the wifo of r
Daniel Boone and concerning whose m
eyes, (the young hunter is said to i
have mistaken them for a dear.), the tj
pretty backwoods romance is told.
The lady is horself also the widow of ,
one Daniel Boon's otn nephews, her p
second husband * -who asaisted. in si
bringing the great huntei back to tl
Kentucky. She was both in one of r
the chief old'pioneer statioiA, (her el
grandfather't.) near Lexington, and, i
although- she is in her eighty-Grat c
year, she is active in body, busying p
ierself with her flowers and gardenji c
clear sighted and alert in spirit. o
Recently she heard that one of his nid- a
die-aged sons, absent over 20 years in p
California, and presumed dead for a
more than holf of that time, was yet l
alive, and her j -y uns gie.t. Ile, ai
too, had supposed hs wother to be 13
lon, since dead. ' - r<
The old lady has a romance conn- ei
ticoted with her second muarritge. It. re
is as follows : When her mother was it
a youzg lad%. Col. William Boone, di
the nephew of D.m4i10 mentioned ei
above, was very much in love with -
her, and askod tier on otn ocoaqimn to oa
tuarr itim. Si. told hin Ohe was ty
(en1gaged to Alorgan Bryan, and that d
thoy were to be married itd a few at
days. Col. Boone went away and s1
inirrie3 another young woman. Af. A
terwvards he, with his wife, visi,ed
the young married couple when their
first child (now in tier fifth score of
years) was but a very few days old, st
and seeing the baby, he laughed and bi
said to her mother: "Now, Milly, pt
as you wouldu't have me yourself, 5,
you'll give me the girl for iny second 8
wife, won't you ? Whether any ir
jesting promise was made I am not n'
informed ; but the baby grew up, and ov
at twezty-seven she was married, had at
seven children, becaime a widow after o
nine years, and remained; otto for a tY
long time, when Col. Bo1ons firLt
wife having died some years previous. W
ly, shte really became, in'ler own Ou
middle life, the wife of her motber's tin
earl-y lover, who had claimed her in Cc
her cradle. The go'od oll lady is e. ail
customed, in relating this to 'her sons
and nieces, to Fpesk of it as "one of
the most remarkable things that over
happened." I think so, too ; and it
is a true story." nc
An Atrocious lurder Ii Bccel Island. b<
At 11ankinson's Store, in Beech tQ
Island, on last Saturday night, a hor. d
rible and altogether unprovoked inur
der was comtnitted by one Thos. to
William-, a colored man, who ruth
lesly took the life of a follow man, I
also colored, named John Mims. It a
appears that Williams was beating P
another negro in an unmerciful man- t
ne'r, when M ims went to W illiams and TI
begged him to cease bating the man,
who was a-friend of Mina, whnreupon C
Williams became very muclofforded
with Mius, accused him of taking upI
the light. pf his unfortunate' friend, b
which Miims donied, and after glyiig i
the It ter the'd-d lie, took- up the ch
door b%tr, and struck Alims a severe it
blow across the temple, from the i
effects of whi6h blow he die'd alino'st ci

Tile Crops In louthWestern Ucargia.
The Albany News, of the 24th ult,,
We are plensed to learn that the
draught in this locality has done no
serious injury to the corn crop. It
is too early yet for corn to be hurt
much by (Iry weather.
Cotton that is up is doing fery well,
but a vast deal was planted just as the
drdath set in, and the moisturo that
sprouted the seed dried away- before
the tender shoot could escape, and
there is now no hope of its cotring at
all. In consequence of this, the
acreage to be cultivated is otit short
Gardens are ruined, and vegetables
are as scarce as Radioal honesty.

one had left a barrel of whiskey at

A Monster Bird in California.
Last Tuesday evening about seven
o'elock, says the Winnemucca (Cal.)
Register of August 9, the people in the
lower town were startled by the sud
den appearance of a huge monster we
are at a loss to know whether to call
fowl or beast, notwithstanding it had
wings and could fly. It was certainly
the biggest creature ever seen in this
country with feathers. If a bird, it.
belongs to a giant species unknown to
American ornithology. Our atten.
tibn was first attracted by hearing
sothe one sig out, "Holy Mother, see
that cow Wih wings," We stepped
tothe door just in time to see the
monster alight with something of a
crash on the the roof of Mrs. Collier's
dwelling house, whmre it remained for
several minutes taking a quiet survey
of the land and the astonished multi
tudO who stood gafing at that uner
peoted visitor. It could not have
weighed less than seventy or one hun
dred pounds, with a pair of ponderous
wings, which when stretched- out to
the breeze, must have been fully
twelve feet from tip to tip. Its color
was that of a raven, with the excepA
tion that the tips of the wing and tail
were white, An "old salt" who hap'
pEned to get sight of the bird thinks
he mustb ha renegade member of the
