South Ainerican Snakes..

from 0Q3 Jsland to another; und in
some instances they, passed over thi
boats, to the great alarm of the pas
S2ngers, bat; without attemptirfg to
do any .jnischief. . They are of a
. liffht crreen tjolor, six or eight' feet
lonff, and sw'mf with about a third of
their body raised out of tho water,
propelling themselves rapidly along
by the "undulating motion of their
'tail.' . We were micro! jd by the boat
man that their prey consists - chiefly
of water rats ar.'d yoang'birds. The
steersman of tha l:iunch3S always en-
deavor to avoid s tiling under the
trees ihat overhang the river, lest h-mjo-ht
detach some of the snakes from
tho branches, ; .We frequently saw
numbers of them, exhibiting the most
brilliant colors, while basking in the

The Savannah Republican is an
exception to tho know nothing press.
It is decent and manly in its. opposi
tion to Mc. Buchanan, and compli
ments him highly. k"IIe is a states
man free from all fanatical or section
al prejudice, and a true friend of the
Constitution-and the Union V-'bis
past course upon the most alarming
question of the present day, has been
euchas to free -him from Southern
suspicion and prejudice. We shall
, not," it says, '.'lay at his door charges
of abolition and unfriendliness- to
the South." Mr. Buchailan, an old
line conservative i democrat;" ".we
' breath freer, and felt lightened 6f a
'load of apprehension" thatlhe nomi
nation fell on ueo worthy, a man, as
"James J3a.chanan, of Pennsylvania".
' The course of the Republican is : in
honorable contrast to that of most of.
the know nothing papers m the
South. But it is "labor lost" for
thein.to'seek to convince the people
-of the South, that Mr. Buchanan . is
their enemy.'' The unscrupulous na
ture of the attacks -upon him will
redound to his advantage, and en
dear him the more to the people.

AmoDg the desperadoes ajtd duel
ists of the South and West, I . have
neer known one who did riot have
his "cowardly days' season3 when
be used dishonorable mean3 to avoid
the very p5rsoual ; (fifficolties which
at other times furnished his ehief
nmusement and delight Some men
are only heroes - when intoxicated.
Others borrow all "their bravery from
tho passion of. - love, and revenge.
Many, fight well in the1 ranks of nn
army, yet fly in terror from an indi
vidual foe; while some display " the
most reckless darin in all single !
combats but runaway at tha -first" fire
of a platoon. . ;':;.--v ; '
' The mosf remarkable peculiarity
aud incosiatency of-desperation may
be found among, the Mexican braves
of the Rio 'Grande, who evince the
utrnostfear at the. sight" of pistols
especially revolvers;' but shrink not
from the most terrible combat ' with
Bowie-knives; indeed, they never re-
tuse the challenge from even -an
American, provided . they can have
the choice of those favorite weapons.
As it may naturally be supposed,
they become wonderfully expert in
the use of their deadly implements.
I have seen them stand, and, without
a tremor or token of affright, hew
each ' in r pieces, until one " rr both
adversaries sunk do'wn dead or ex
hausted. . . " ' "'." ''.
' Bat woq to the unfortunate enemy
who did jaot possess their ' marvelous
dexterity with the naked dagger!
The first blow, one mortal Mexican
stab, always, in such casas, termin
ated the struggle by piercing the
combatant's heart. ; . '..
. Among the most notorious duel
ists in this eavage species of conflict,
Pedro Palacios, cf Brownsville, was
altogether preminent. He boasted,
and doubtless with, entire truth, of
having slain a score of men on the
Rio Grande, besides' unknown num
bers in other parts t)f Mexico. lie
followed the profession of a gambler,
aud, therefore, wandered from the
mouth of the rivtr to Laredo; in
every neighborhood might be seen the
graves of his . - victims, " until his
name became a terror to thewholej
frontier. ''.., '
' It may seem strange to 'persons
unfamiliar with the country; that he
was not doomed to legal punishment
for his. deeds; but the singular' fact
admits of easy explanation. For two
or three.years after the war the courts
were not organized ;. and besides he
perpetrated all his various homicides
m fair figat, and according to the
forms recognized .by the , code of
honor; and, moreover, when prosecu-'
tions at last assailed himt he obtained
security in the character of the jurors
called to try the issues. . ' ..
, -.'..- i
It must not be imagined, however,
that his countless quarrels originated
at the gambling-table, or - grew out
of the questions relating to his fair
ness in dealing cards: the cause was
both more romantic and revolting.
His wife Juana, one of the most
fascinating women ever born in Mex-(
ico, accompanied him as a- partner,
and bewildered the adverse players as
niuch by her extraordinary . beauty,
as the husband did by his skill; while
on every occasion and wherever she
went, her charms inspired the be
holders with a. sort of phrenzied pass
ion, (haf t in spite of reason, pra
denceand peril brought adventur
ous lovers to her feet. ' 1
Bnf.'Peiro! Palacios was jealous
even to madness, :and" the slightest
attentions fo' his' bewitching -.siren
aroused bis mtfrderous-wrath 'and
vengeanceaad ? he never railed - to
thro7 the onus of the' challenge on
his enemy, of to provoke the first
assault, when ns blow of his Bye
knife usually settled the controversy
and silenced. theiwooing of bis" rival
forever. ' - - - - jc-
