The eplisude in the career of SaamI
Houston is well known. In the
prime of life, and with every pros.

ed Governor of Tennesese, be re.
signed his office and abandoned his
, bome on the morning succeeding
i his wedding, from a cause never
definitely ascertained, but whlch
was supposed to be the confeesion
of his wife that she loved another
better than himself. All eforts of
bi. friends to induce him to change
his purpose were in vain. He de
cended the Tennessee River to
Cairo, where be fitted out a small
fltlmhot with whisky and tndian
trading supplies, ant deoated downt
the Mississippi to the month of the
Arkansas.' ' He pushed up that river
to the mouth of the Illinois, *hlel i
is shoot thirty miles south from
Fort Gibson. There be fodnit the t
clearing of his old friend John Jolly,
the principal CherokeeCbief, whose
lto cabin stood about three hundred 0
yards from the blo thtifgll the u
banks of the condnent rivetn, under v
the shade of a thick growtb of cot
tonwood and syeamore. Ilouston t1
got a moseet bhoespitable welcome.
John Jolly was a fUllblouded h
Cberokee. speaking no Englisab and

age. He was of massive build, al.
though not tall, with a rotund but
conmnanding counthane-. His h
long locks were plentifully sprink- t
led with gray. He bhad several n P
gre slaves, who cultirvated his clear d
ing, and a large stock of cattle and a
horses, but be lived after the Indian 0
fashion. iis cabin contained only
a single room. He wore the Indian C
dress. Houston became his perma
nent guest, adopted the Indian o
dress of bunting. shirt, moccasins
aend leggings, and heoming a tbo E
rough Cberokee in lenguage and
babits. The boat load of whisky
soon disappeared in bospitable libe

Councils of the tribe were held
yearly at Tab Ion.tees.kei. Some.
times they lasted for a week. At
these councils laws were enacted,
and asire with the Government of
the United States were settled.
Houston was adopted as a member
of the tribe, but was never elected
a ebie, as has been stated. He
never took part in the deliberations
except as a silent specotator. He
was, however, sent with a delega
tion of the tribe to Washington to
obtain the fulGilment of the terms
of a treaty. He wore his Indian
costume, and lived and slept like
hi se associates throughout the jour.
