The ciriunstances of this horrible mur4
(le: may. till be fresh in the memitory. o
inuy, butti details of the capture of the
mtrdererlmhave.never, we believe, been
masttle public. A-id as the personages cot
ceriied in the arrest, tuge'her with the iode
in whicla it was performed, aflftrd a linme op
liortunity for exemplifying'sone of the pe
culsiariies of Souith-western character, we
th-ll.give the.,r:lation as we heard it from
the aoath of one of ihe actors, indeed the
prinicipaai in-theaffair. But to begin at the
begir-ling.
A bout two weXAs affter lea viang Columbia,
we were slanding aj the door of a small
house in the little town of Jonesboro,' on
the Waslitn, COnsisting of five or six log
alwelliangs, and a cotion shed of the saume
primitive architecture. Near where we
stood were two Arkansawyers, as they call
themselves, in earIest ConVersation, MIa the
course of which one of them used a phrase
which, though common at the South, was
-at least new to us. It was-'Ah! he's a
striker.'
Now, although curiosity is said to be the
peciliar prerogative (if woman, we must
confess that man likewise has no small
shatre of the same ticklish propensity; at
least we felt it on that occasion, and step
ping forward, said
'My friend, what do you mean by a
strker?'
IThe man eyed us for moment, and then
.replied
'Why you see, stranger-but stop a-bit,
till I take a Virginia feast.'
'A 'irginia feast,' thought we; 'what is
that?
\Ve soon knew, for after diving into the
recesses of his capneiis pockets, lie drew
ft ailm large piece of chewiag toibacco, atl
after affering it to us. with 'IHave a chew?'
lie hit sifl. railician tti poismi a hoirse, amd
rolling it to the side of his Cheek, coms
anenceil his explaiation afresh.
'W tb you sae, stranger-Moses an1d At
rim war strikers; Ge-rge Washingtm war
a strikear; mnd liat mai thnsr. (pointing tit
an ina dividal ati it la sart distance oil.) 'he's
.a striker, iail n mistake. lie aint felt his
61n1ts for notliina'. I itl ve.'
This defin iionl puzzled its a little. but wea
adetah otit eiough i it ti milerstital that all
persois w%,htis perfoarm deeds of prowess are
-strike-rs.'
The 'mai thar,' imlicated us a striker,
wats a short, leia, niscitlair mn, dressed
ia a white blaiket cait, wit stripes romid
the skirt and over tlie thoulders, so cam
un14n lto thle S1111h. Hie bmre inl lthe bend ill
