Very early in my professional life, and
therefore a great many years ago, I was
consulted by n gentleman of large for?
tune, well known on the turf, under tho
following singular circumstances. It
seemed that my informant, in the course
of that year, had a race-horse, which was
first favorito for ono of tho great races,
and that this horse had broken down
most suspicion ely while almost in the
aot of winning the race. The owner-I
may call him Mr. Stanton, although that
was not his real name-Was exceedingly
annoyed and disgusted, and particularly
displeasod with bis trainer and jockey,
by whom ' the animal was ridden. Ho
resolved to dismiss the jockey, break up
his stables, and give np the turf alto?
The jockey, whose name waa Tom.
White, had previously stood very well in
tho racing world, as a keen and honest
lad. He had been distressed beyond
measure at his failure, and had shed bit?
ter tears in, the moment of defeat. Ho
assured' Mr. Stanton that the accident
must have been owing to foul play-that
the horse bad been got at somehow-and
that without greater precautions than
had been used, no gentleman need at?
tempt to train.
. Mr. Stanton believed that this was
substantially true, but was firmly oon
1 Tinoed that Mr. Tom. White was not un?
acquainted with the source of the .cala?
mity. He therefore remained firm to his
resolution of selling his stud, and dis?
missing White, which last be did. Tom.
got an engagement in the North, and left
that district of country altogether,
n Tom made but. little remonstrance
against his dismissal. What he most
seemed to feel was leaving the yearling
colts, ia which ho had taken much pride,
; and in particular ono of which ho had
great expectations, and had called, on his
own account,' the "Bed Hover." Ho woe
rather a bony, shapeless animal, and
judges thought little of him; but Tom,
who reveredo one's opinion but his
own, was ffff'o^ loud in his praises to
his maeter^\? S .last words, as he was
leaving, were, "Don't 'ee sell the couts,
squoire-don't 'ee sell "Red Rover"
he bq a rare 'un, he be;" and with
this friendly caution, Tom White went
ont on his way, and was seen no more.
In tho spring following, Mr. Stanton
advertised his stud for sale. Two days
before the time appointed, the stud
groom presen tod himself to Mr. Stanton,
while at breakfast, with a face of ashy
paleness and trembling limbs.
"Please, air, 'Red Rover* be stole," was
all his faltering tougue could expr?s.
" 'Red Hover' stolen! That is impos
ble, my lad. He was locked up in the
stable last night-I saw it done myself."
"They be off wi' him this morning,
anyhow," said the lad. "His stall WUK
empty when we went at 7 o'clock, aud we
can't see him nowhere."
Although Mr. Stanton had not the
same exalted opinion of "Red Rover's"
capacity that Tom White had, he thought
him a promising colt, bot so utterly un?
formed as hardly to have tempted a
"professional" tc such an act. But the
k^audaoity of tho theft made him rory in
^^fcgnnut, aud determined him to find out
The examination of the premise?
threw no light on the mystery, excepting
that it became certain tbut, however ac?
complished, tho theft had not been com?
mitted by violence. Nothing WUK broken
-nothing out of order. The looks were
entire, and the bead mau in tho .st able;
oorroborated the lad in attesting that th<
doors were found looked in the morning.
Such was tho tale with which Mr. Stan
ton resorted to ray advice. No chu
whatever could be found to tho perpe
trator; n?tese the ordinary and simple
ono, that tho atablo servants had con
nived n.t. tb? theft. But Mr. Stantor
owned that there had been nothing ii
their manner to warrant this suspicion
although he was entirely at a loss to nc
count for the outrage on any other sop
I did all I could under the cireutu
stances. I advertised fur and wide; ]
warned the great railway line?, aud em

at Hexham, with a colt of which hi

reddish-brown, the magistrate'not onl;
would not detain the mern, but repri
mantled tho police for apprehending hin
whon they had tho description of th
stolen horso in their hands.
Nothing had been heard of Tom Whit

Bat no one bad seen or heard of bim.
and Mr. Stanton was obliged to eontont
himself with a second- dismiss*! of his
servants. The detective was always
under the impression that the man at
Hexham waa trnly the thief, and made
no secret of hie opinion that the magis?
trate who liberated him was a donkey;
but be was a taciturn poten tutu,-by na?
ture, and never condescended to explain
a clue which he had nevertheless followed
up until it broke.
Two years afterwards thero was some
curiosity excited at ono of the great races
of tho year about a horse which was
so completely "dark" ss to bo almost out
of the betting altogether. Tho name of
tho owner under which be rau was a turf
uame assumed for the occasion ; but he
was understood to be the property of, or
at least to be vouched for, by a well
known half-squire, half-trainer. But
what ho was, or where bo was, no ono
knew. The "outs" were utterly at fault.
They could not discover the placo nt
whir h bo was training, and as no efforts
they had made had led to any result,
unfriendsd as the animal washy backers,
thero was considerable expectation croat
ed on his appearance.
The horse could not bo heard of tho
night before. "Deserter" bed not re?
pelled himself. But wbon tho ground
was cleared for the preliminary canter he
appeared, and great was the rush to tho
front to see him. The first glimpse of
him showed he was formidable; tho long
swinging, well extended stride with
which he took his canter impressed all
the knowing ones. Ho -was large and
sinewy, powerful as well as handsome,
but his color was a kind of mottled
chestnut, such as is rarely found in tho
thoroughbreds. CMri Stanton was there,
and, to his surprise, saw his old frieud,
Tom White, mounted on the cynosure of
The race was never in doubt. The
stranger, bard held, remained behind the
front horses until 300 yards from tho
post, and then, let out, ran home by
himself, amid the shouts and acclama?
tions of the multitude.
The rac? over, ..Deserter" vanished as
mysteriously as he same, und, in spite ol
Mr. Stanton's inquiries, no tidings ol
Tom White could oe discovered.
A week afterwards a groom arrived at
Mr. Stanton's, leading a reddish-brown
thoroughbred of great power, and deli?
vered to Mr. Stanton a note to the fol?
".Mr. Stanton-Sra: I send you bael)

THE BAHEFOOTBD FISHER Gnu,. -The
following ia from the Milwaukee Wiscon?
While otir steamer Norman lay wood?
ing up at Port Oneida, on tho Michigan
ahore, there came aboard a pleasant bare?
footed German girl, with a pail of berries.
She wore a cheap calico dress, minns tho
hoops, with a little gingham shaker,
nearly hiding her face. She was rather
under/size, with a supple figure, and au
air of modest assurance that denotod a
girl of genuine stump, but that told thu
boys to keep out of lier way. All tho
men about tho boat and deck seemed to
know her. The steward bought lier ber?

On ioqniry of tho' ola* dockman,' we
learned that our little barefooted maiden,
though OE iv seventeen, waa the oldest of
a family of an even dozen, living in a
little double log cabin on the high bank
above tho shore. Her father carno here
from Buffalo, some dozen years ago, went
to clearing timber, selling wood to steam?
boats, and raising stvff on his land. La?
nie, tho oldest girl, was tho "little cap?
tain" from the start, and showed pluck
beyond lier years. In winter she would
get on her boots and be out amongst the
wood choppers before she could hardly
waddle through the snow. lu summer
she would wandor off berrying, or be
down among tho nets or fishing boats.
It was her greatest delight to get on the
water, to rock and toss upon tho waves.
At ton she was a trim little sailor herself,
and would coast off for miles alone. At
twelve sh? would allow no boy to pass
her with sail or oar.
For tho last threo years "Lauio" has
been master of a handsome fishing craft
and a set of "gill-uets." She puts them
out early in April and continues them
till lato in tho fall. Sho is out every
morning by daylight, and again in tho
evening, except in tho roughest weather.
She takes a younger sister along to help
set and draw the nets. She often brings
iu a couplo of hundred fine lake trout
and white fish nt a haul. She dresses
them, dries out the oil, packs and sends
them away to market. Her August and
September catch amounted to over 8300.
Beside her fishing receipts, she has taken

INDIAN SUMMER.-The New York Far
mers' Club speculates upon the canse of
Indian summer in this wise:
Tho warm, smoky spell known us
Indian summer, which is perhaps moro
peculiar to the N or th -canter H States of
America than to any other portion of the
globe, always occurs after the first killing
frost, not tint first white frost, bnt one
which is severe enough to bring down
nearly all the forest leaves and kill the
herbaceous plants. The bulk of vege?
tation thus destroyed is almost incalcu?
lable. In its decay this is undergoing
slow combustion. Who can calculate
tho amount of smoko and heat given off,
or what effect this must produce upon
tho atmosphere, or tell whether thia is
not, tho true cause of Indian summer?
In support of this theory, tho fact ie
patent that when forests were much more
extensive, the Indian summer was longer,
warmer, and more smoky than ut present.

Jiy his Excellency ROBERTK. SCOTT, Go?
vernor of the State of South Carolina.
WHEREAS, information han been received
nt this Department, that portions of
the County of Sumter, in said Stato, aro in?
fested by bands of lawless and unprincipled
men, who, nuder pretext of suppressing illicit
traffic in colton, have wilfully and maliciously
set Are to and consumed tho storehouses of
citizens, and openly uvow their determination
of perpetrating similar outrages upon tho pro?
perty of others, unless tho threatening notice?
served upon them hy these wrong-doers aro
promptly obeyed; and whereas, those unlaw?
ful parties are regularly organized, armed and
mounted, and, disguised in fantastic cos?
tumes, prowl about at night, in bodies too
strong to be confronted or arrested by thc
peace officer? of the County, and thia, in dero?
gation of the laws, in violation of tho peaco
and good order ?if thu community, and tho jeo?
pardizing of the lives and psoporty of tho citi?
Now, therefore. I, ROBERT K. SCOTT, Go?
vernor of the State of Son th Carolina, do here?
by issue this, my proclamation, enjoining and
directing all Magistrates, Sheriffs, and other
otticors of tho peace, in said County of Sumter,
to bu faithful, vigilant and activo in the up?
holding of the laws and in the discharge of
their duties, and especially in ferreling out,
and bringing to punishment, the porpctrators
of theso ncfearious outrages; and I would
earnestly invoke tho aid of the law-abiding
citizens of the Connty, of those who have an
interest in its reputation and prosperity, that
they all discountenance aud discourage all
measure* and proceedings teudiug to violence
and insubordination, and especially those
which would Bunstitute for the pcaceablo pro?
cess of the law the torch of tho nioeadiary.
Incendiarism, at ull tunca and placea, is a
crime of the gravest magnitude, hut ita terri?
ble teachings make lt doubly dangerous in a
community like oura. If those who pretend to
possess the property, thc intelligence and tho
morality of the community resort to it, under
the pretence of enforcing law, or punishing
dishonesty, they must not bo surprised if
others, not so favored, smarting undera sense
of injustice and wrong, by which, perhaps,
they hove been defrauded of tho hard-earned
proceeds of tfieii- labor, and their families de?
prived of food, clothing and shelter, (and such
cases aro not Knlrcquent,) should rr sort to tho
! same nummary process for redress. Tho pro
! tection of law being withdrawn from property,
I and a self-constituted and irresponsible body
I of individuals assuming to themselves tho
power of pronouncing upon the guilt orinno
I ?enco of individuals, alleged to bo dishonest,
I but too frequently because they are personally
I or politically obnoxious to their accusers, thc
I Hood-gates of anarchy and crime aro at once
i opened; antagonistic associations will be or-J
ganized. and the community become the ploy
[of hostile factions, 'primarily exalted by re-j
I vengo, hut which will eventually bu character- j
ized by plunder und license, and thc exhib?
lion ot thc worst passions of human nature.
Thc lurid glare of the mid-night torch will
light up many a peaceful neighborhood to
scenes if desolation ami plunder, ami to at
trocities, ut tho mere allusion to which ha
inanity shudders, and which every good etti- 1
' zen, every lover of his kind, all who value and ?
; honor tho reputation and prosperity of the |
State, should'ardently deprecate aud devote |
their most strenuous exertions to prevent and
?JU i* my duty and d?termination lo use ?ll
tho measures at my disposai to put a stop to
j proceedings that may lead to such deplorable
results; ami with this purpure I have sum?
moned to the uni of tho peace others of said
County the armed police of tho State. Should
' this be insufficient in arrwting and suppress
? mg theso illegal proceedings, however much 1
i may regret tho necessity, 1 shall plAce the
County of Sumter under martial law, and in?
voke tho entire power of the State in re-estab
I Malling tho supremacy of tho laws.
, In testimony whereof. I have hereunto set my
I hand, aud canned the groat seal of the
' ' St.ile to bo aflixcd, at Columbia, this Hth
" day of November, A. D. 18C?), and iu the
