The Eloquence of a Tortured Genius—
Triumphant Defense of a Friendless
Widow.
John Taylor was licensed, wten a vouth
of twenty-one, to practice at a bar of .
He was poor, but well eduoated, and
possessed of extraordinary genius. The
graoca of his person, combined with the
superiority of his intelleot, enabled him
to win the hand of a fashionable beauty.
Twelve months afterward the husband
was employed by a wealthy firm of that
city to ro on a mission as land agent, to
the West. As a heavy salary was offered,
he bade farewell to his wife and eoa He
. wrote back every week, but received not
a line in answer. Six montns
when the husband received a letter from
his employer that explained all Shortly
after his departure for the West, the
wife and her father returned to Missis
sippi. Then she immediately obtained a
divorce by act ol legislature, married
again forthwith, and, to complete the
climax of her oruelty and wrong, had the
name of Taylor's son changed to that of
Marts that of her second matrimonial
partner.
This perfidy nearly drove Taylor insane.
His career from that moment became
eccentrio in the first degree sometimes
he preached, sometimes he pleaded attho
bar, until at last a fever carried him off
at a comparatively early age. ihe
following is an acoount of one of his efforts
at the bar;
At an early hour on the 9th of April,
1840, the Court Houso in Clarksville,
Texas, was crowded to overflowing. Save
in the war times, there had never been
witnessed so large a gathering in the Red
River country, while the strong feeling
apparent in every face, will . sufficiently
explain the matter following.
About the close of 1339, Geo. Hopkins,
one of the wealthiest planters and most
influential men in Northern Texas, offered
a gross insult to Mary Ellison, the young
and beautiful wifo of his principal over
seer. The husband threatened to chastise
him for the outrage, whereupon Hopkins
loaded his gun, went to Ellison's house,
and Bhot him in his own door.
The murderer was arrested and bailed
to answer the charge. Tho occurrence
produced intense excitement, and Hop
kins in order to turn the tide of popular
opinion, or at least to mitigate the general
wrath which was first violently against
him, circulated reports infamously
prejudicial to the character and standing
of tho woman, who had sufforod such
cruel wrongs at his hands.
Sho brought suit for Bland or. And
thus two oases one criminal and the
other civil, and both out of the same
tragedy, were pending at the April
Circuit Court for 1810.
The interest naturally folt by the com
munity as to tbe issue, became far deeper
when it was known that Ashley and Pike,
r.f Arkansas, and the celebrated S. 3.
Prentiss, of New Orleans, each by enor
mous fees, had been retained by Hopkins
lor aoicnso.
The trial of indictment for murder con
cluded on the '8th of April, with tho
acquittal of Hopkins. Such a result
might have well been foreseen, comparing
the talonts of the counsel engaged on
either side. I
Tho Texas lawyers were utterly over
whelmed by tbe arguments and eloquence
of their opponents. It was a fight of a
d warf against giants.
The slander suit was -set for the 9th,
and the throng of spectators gTew in
number, as well as exoitement. And
what seemed strange the current of the
public opinion how ran directly for Hop
kin His money had procured witnesses
who served his powerful advocates. In
deed, so triumphant had been the success
on the previous day that when the slander
case was called Mary Ellison was left
without an attorney. All had with
drawn. The pigmy pottifoggors dare not brave
the sharp wit of Pike and the scathing
thundor of PrentisB.
"Have vou no counsel?" in
Miles, looking kindly at the plaintiff.
"No, sir; they have all deserted me, and
I am too poor to employ any more," re
plied the beautiful Alary, bursting into
tears.
"In such a case will not some chiv
nitons member of the profession volun
teer?' asked the Judge, glancing around
the bar.
The thirty lawyers wore silent.
"I will, your honor," said a voice from
the thickest of the crowd, situated behind
tho bar.
At the tone of the voice many started
half from their seats, and perhaps there
was not a heart in the intense throng that
did not beat somewhat quicker it was so
unearthly sweet, ringing and mournful
The first sonsatioo, however, was
changed into laughter, when a tall, gaunt,
spectral figure, that no person present
remembered to have seen before, elbowed
his way through the crowd an 1 placed
himself within the bar. - His appearanoe
was a problem to puzzle the sphynx
herself. His high, pale brow, and his
small, nervously twitching face soemed
aotive with the conoentrated essenee and
cream of genius; but then his infantile
blue eyes, hardly visible beneath their
massive arches, looking dim, dreamy,
almost unoonsoious, and his olothing was
so shabby that the court almost hesitad
to let tho case proceed under his manage
ment.
"Has your uauie been entered on the
rolls of the State?" demanded tho Judge,
suspiciously.
"It is immaterial about my name being
on your rolls," aswered the stranger, his
thin lips curling up into a fiindish sneer.
I may be allowed by the courtesy of the
oourt and bar. Here is my license from
the highest tribunal in America," and he
handed Judge Miles a parchment
The trial immediately went on. In the
examination of the witnesses the Btranger
evinced very little ingenuity as commonly
thought. Ho suffered each one to toll
his own story; without interruption,
though he generally managed to make
eaoh tell it over two or three times. He
nut a few. cross questions, whioh, with
keen witnesses, only served to correct
mistakes, and he made no notes, which,
in mighty memories, onl j tend to embar
rass. Tho examination being ended, as coun
sel for the plaintiff, he had a right to 'the
opening ns'woll as the closing speeoh; but
to the astonishment of every one he
declined the former and allowed the
defense to lead off.
Then a shadow might havo been seen to
flit across the features of Pike, and to
darken the bright eyes of Prentiss. They
saw that they had "caught a Tartar," but
who it was, or how it happened, was im
possible to guess. '
Colonel Ashley 'spoke first Ho dealt
the jury a dish of that coarse, dry logic
whioh, years afterward, rendered him
famous in the Senate of the Union.
The poet Albert Pike followed with a
vein of wit and in a half torrent of ridi
cule, in whioh neithor the plaintiff nor
Ihe ragged attorney was forgotten or
eparo'J,
The great Prentiss concluded for the
defendant with aglow of gorgeous words,
brilliant as a shower of falling btars, and
with bursts of oratory that brought the
house down in cheers, in whioh even the
sworn jury themselves joined, notwith
standing the eteru order of the bench.
Thus wonderfully susceptible ore the
the Southern poople to tho charms of
impassioned eloquence.
It was the stranger's turn. He had re
mained apparently abstracted during all
the previous speeches. Still, and strait,
andmotionless in his seat, his pale, smooth
forehead shooting high like a mountain
cone of snow, and but for that continued
twitch that caino and went perpetually in
his face, you would have taken him for a
mere man of marble, or a human form
oarred in ioe. Even his dim, dreary eyes
were invisible beneath those gray, shaggy
eyebrows. '
But now at lost he rises before the
bar, not behind it and so near tho won
dering jury, that he might touoh the fore
man with his long, bony fingers. With
eyes half shut, and standing rigid as a
piller of iron, his thin lips curled as if in
measureloss scorn, slightly apart, and
then me sound came fortn.
At first it is low and sweet, insinuating
itself into the brain, as an artless tone
winding its way into the deepest recesses
of the heart, like the melody of a mngio
incantation, while the speaker proceeds
without a gesture or the least signal of
exoitement to tear to pieces the argument
of Ashley, whioh melts away at his
touoh as frost before a sunbeam. Every
one looked surprised. His logic was at
once brief and so luminously clear, that
the rudest peasant could comprehend it
without an eflort
Anon he came to the dazzling wit of
the poet-lawyer Pike. Then tho curl of
his lips grew sharper, his smooth faee
began to kindle up, ana his eyes to open
dim and dreamy no longer; but vivid as
lightning, red as hrc globes, as glaring as
twin meteors. Tho whole soul was in his
eye, tho lull heart streamed out of his
face. In five minutes Pike's wit seemed
liko foam of folly, and his finest satire,
horrible profanity, when compared with
the inimitable sallies and exterminating
sarcasm of the stranger, interspersed with
jests and anecdotes that filled the forum
with laughter.
Then, without so much as bestowing an
allusion upon Prentiss, he turned round
short at the perjured witnesses of Hop
kins, tore their testimony Into atoms, and
hurled into their faces such invectives
that all trembled as with ague, and two of
them actually fled in dismay from the
Court-house.
The excitement of the crowd was be
coming tremendous. Their united life
and souls seemed to Lang upon the burn
ing tongue of the stranger. He inspired
them with the power ofhis own passion.
He saturated them with the poison ofhis
own malicious feolings. He seemed to
have stolen nature's long hidden secret of
attraction. He was the son to the Bca of
all thought and emotion, whioh rose and
fell, and toiled in the billows as he chose
Bnt his greatest triumph was to come.
His eyes began to glance furtivoly at
me assassin iiopsins, bb nis lean taper
fingers assnmod tho same direction. He
hemmed the wrotoh with a circumvalation
of strong evidence and impregnable argu
ment cutting off all hope of oscape.
He piled up large bastions of insur
mountable facts. He dug beneath the
murderer and slanderer's feet, ditches of
dilemmas, suoh as no sophistry could
overloap, no secrets of ingenuity evade;
and thus having, as . one might say, im
pounded his viotirn, and girt about like a
scorpion in a circle of fire he stripped
himself to the work of massaore.
Ohl then it was a vision both glorious
and dreadful to behold the orator. His
actions before graceful as the waves of
the golden willow in tho breeze, grew im
petuous as the motion of an oak in a hur
ricane.
His voice became a trumpet filled with
wild whirlpools, deafening tho ear with
the crashes of power, and yet intermin
gling all the whilo with a sweet undersong
of the softest oadonce.
His face was as red as a drunkard's
his forehoad glowed like a heated furnace,
his countenance was haggard like that of
a maniac, and ever and anon he flung his
long bony arms on high as if grasping
after thunderbolts.
. He drew a pioturo of murder in such
appalling oolors, that in comparison, hell
itself might bo considered beautiful. He
painted tbe slanderer so black that the
snn seemed dark at noonday, when shin
ing on such an accursed monster, and
then fixing both portraits on tho shrinking
Hopkins, he fastened them there forever.
The agitation of tho audience amounted
almost to madness.
All at onoe the speaker descended
from his perilous hight His voice
wailed out for the murdered dead and
living the beautiful Ms ry, more benuti-
ul every moment as her tours flowed

He closed by a strange exhortatation
to the jury, and through them to the
bystanders. He advised the panel after
they should bring in a verdict for the
plaintiff not to offer violenoe to the de
fendant, howevor riohly he might deserve
it, in other words, not to lynoh the villain,
but to leave his punishment with God.
This was the most artful trick of all,
and the best calculated to insure ven
geance. The jury rendored a verdict of twenty
thousand dollars, and the night afterward
Hopkins was taken out ofhis bed by lynch
ers and beaten to death.
As the Court adjourned the stranger
made known his name( and oalled the
attontion of the public with the announce
mentJohn Taylor will preach thre even

The crowd all turned out, and Tayjpr's
sermon equalled if it did not surpass "ho
splendor of his forensio effort. This is
not exaggeration. 1 have listened to Clay,
Webster and Calhoun to Dewey, Tyng
and Bascom but never heard anything
