"Prpo.ood with thy Eloplmnt."
In dolumbiana county, Ohio, resides
an old fellow renowned for hisbelligot
enfc disposition, who is goncrally known
asJTricud Shavcy. Born and bred a
Quaker, ho was long sinco read out of
mooting on account of his quarrelsome
propensities, but ho still pertinaciously
clings to tho plain clothes and plain
language of his early days, possibly as
a protection against tho wrath which he
is continually provoking by his over
bearing and irritating demeanor. He
is always tho owner of tho crosacst dog
111 tho neighborhood, tho most trouble
somo brcacliy steers, &c., and is contin
ually in hot water with somo of his
neighbors in conscqucnco of tho dep

stock. A few weeks sinco, Van Am
burg's mcnogerio, traveling through
Columbiana, was obliged to pass his
residence. A littlo beforo daylight,
Nnsh, tho keeper of tho elephant Tippoo
Saib, us ho was passing over the road
with his elephant, discovered this pseudo-Quaker
seated upon a fenco upon
tho roadside, watching a bull which he
had turned out upon the road, and
which was pawing, bellowing, and
throwing up a tremendous dust gener
ally. In fact, from the fury of tho an
imal's demonstrations, 0110 would readi
ly havo taken him for ono of tho identi

shouted Nnsh as ho approached.

bull, but proceed with thy elephant,"
rctortod Iriend Shayoy, rubbing his
hands with delight at tho prospect of
an approaching scrinunago, tho old fol
low lmving great confidence in the in
vincibility of his bull, which was really
tho terror of the whole country around.
Tippoo Saib canio on with his un
couth, shambling gait ; the bull lowered
his head und.iiwdo,.!. o)ipva,'),irpln
even pausing in his march, gave his
cow-catcher a 6weep, caiciung mo uuu
on the side, crushing in his ribs with his
onormous tusks, and then raised hiin
about thirty feet in tho air, tho bull
.-'king upon his head asho camo down,
breaking his neck and killing him m-
"1 am afraid your ouu nas oont uia

with a troubled look at his defunct bull ;

This officer,1 who has groyn grey in
his country's service, and 'who is well
known, particularly in this Stuto, as
tho honest, straight-forward and able
Acting Assistant l'rovost Marshal Gen
eral for Missouri, is not undeserving of
a higher recognition than can bo given
in a transient newspaper notice lie
longing to tha old regime of army of
ficers, he, like many others, has been
outstripped in tho raco for rank and ra
tions by many junior officers who enne
upon tho stago, full of youthful vigor,
at tho outbreak of tho rebellion. Col.
Alexander commanded the Utah expedi
tion until relieved,., by Gen. Johnson,
when Grant, Sherman, and McClcllan
were simply Lieutenants. Over forty
years service, such as is shown by the
following brier sketch ol tho Colonel,
certainly should cntitlo him to a promo
tion which his modesty and unwilling
ness to avail himself of political influ
ences have heretofore prevented him
from obtaining :
Graduating at West Point Military
Academy, Juno 30th, 1823, he was the
next day promoted Brevet Second Lieu

1827. lie was mndo Cnptninof tho3il

Major, April'lSth, 1817, for gallant
conduct in the battlo of Cerro Gordo,
and Brcvetted Lieutenant Colonel, Au
gust 20th, 1847, for gallant and mer
itorious conduct in tho battles of Con
trcras and Churubusco. At the close oT
the Mexican war, ho was promoted Col
onel of tho 10th Infantry, after whir-h
ho scrvod tho Government at S mtii Fc,
New Moxico, and other points. lie
conducted the Utah expedition until" the
arrival of Johnston.
At tho outbreak of tho lato rebellion,
Col. A. was stationed at Fort Laramie,
and offered his 8orvice3 and that of his
regiment, which was much attached to
him, again and again to tho Govern
ment, but was retained there, that be
ing an important post, for his influence
with tho Indians. IIo remained there
until tho opring of 1803, when ho was

three of Sir John Franklin's men tiro

ngrceablo news. If they nro living,
their narrative of that mysterious and
ill-fated expedition would be one of tho
most absorbingly interesting stories
ever published. Dr. Hall says that

in command of the expedition and thrco

The man finding tho party nt onco

cared for four men through tho winter,
