Select ftom THE BACKWOODS DUEL ; -OR,- rrro pebsoks killed atitu oxe blow. " Dill Wade,n.Ba he was known among the in habitants of the small village of C , in Mis sissippi, was a ynuns man of about twenty-four years of age, with a herculean frame, a big shag gy bead, and small grey eyes that were as quick tn light np with anger as to sparkle with a joke. Bill was, by prolcssiou, a wood-chopprr; yet, notwithstanding his humble position in life, was quite a distinguished person in the small com munity in which be lived. He was, in fact, one of the hardy backwoodsmen of the time, (lam r riling, reader, uf what happcnnljust twenty one years ago this month,) w ho, though surroun ded by inauy, bis superiors in wealth and eiliica fJB; tivn, yet maintained his position among the first in the little village in which be lived, partly be- canse the community being small, every individ ual occupied a position of relative importance to wards his neighbors, aiid partly because no one tared to slight, and in this way provoke tbe an ger of so formidable a parsonage. Bill was, in fact, a "Kcnamcr." lie could, for so ha said himself modesty not being one of tbe virtnes of the wood-chopper "whip any man ill the Coun ty, and would rather pitch into a fair fight than eat e'er a dinner cooked iu the State." No one in tbe village appeared to dispnte his claim to being the "best man" in the County, and Bill indulged himself in the privileges appertaining to the person who occupied so distinguished a po sition. He expressed his sentiments in the most fuariea manner npnn all subjecta and all persons; "fur," said Bill, aud he undoubtedly spoke the truth, "if I like a man, I tell him so, and if I don't, he's pretty sure to tind it out." Iu short, Bill was a burly bully, and, nnlike most of the species, was " pluck to tbe back-bonr." Abmit twelve o'clock an a clear, bright Novem ber day, Bill was sitting upon au empty whisky barrel, which was "beaded up in front of the grocerr, the only store in the place, aud where verytliing needed in the village, from a plow to pint of molasses, was to be hail, whittling a broken broom-handle, and entertaining his com panions, some fonr yung men who were gather ed ronnd, with hia remarks upon a youth named Edmund Gaskett, who had, only a eonple or (mouths before, entered the village. He could .scarcely have been nineteen years of age, for hi jialr face Vas as smooth and as soft as a girl's, and no sign of beard bad yet made its appear anr npou bis chin. In height he stood about five and a half feet, with a slight fignre, a hand some fare, au'il a pair of larce black even. Ie oad only. c.i college a lew mourns berore, and had esse to C to look after some lands belonging to his mother, a wealthy widow, in a neighboring State. Since his arrival in the vil lage he had boarded at the house of Mrs. Barton, also a widow, with an only daughter. 7 Lncy Barton wasjnst sixteen years of age, and, " so the young men of the village said, was the prettiest bine-eyed girl in the whole country. Wade made love to her in hia rnde way, bnt with littkfx or rather with no success whatever. There was no congeniality between the gentle bine-eyed girl, and the rnffian-like wood-chopper. Gaskett, to make a long story as short as possi ble, was at once smitten with the village maiden, and the yonng girl, in a short time, fully recipro cated his affection. The evenings were spent to gether at the house of ber mother, and the yonth sought no other society. Bill Wade of coarse hated Gaskett, or human nature is tnnch the same all the world over, and a snecmsfu! rival is as sore to be hated upon the bluffs of the Missis sippi, as npon the classic banks of the Arao. As naual with him. Wade took no pains to conceal his feelings. He had beea grossly rnde to.Gask etton seerl occasions, even during the abort time he had been in the village, and oneo remark ed -loud enough for the-'yooth to bear, that h -thought "it would be safer for that yonng pnp 'py, Gaskett. to take op hia trap an travel." J though Wade had made thlsTrmark in tbe pres ence of several persons. Gaskett made no reply whatever, though Us dark eya moment gleam- d with an expression of ferocity, which those -wnoiuM not seen would scarcely have OsHeTed possible, so ssd was the natural expression of his face. But all this time Wade is sitting on the np-tnrned whisky barrel. , "Boys," taid he, "111 tell you " t yonng chap puts on any airs with me, 1H1 treat him so he'll think he's upset a hornet's nest with nothing on but his shirt." ' "Look here, Bill," said the most youthful of the four, "you'd better leave that young fellow be, or maybe, little as he is, hell pay yon np. Tbe night you said he'd better take up his traps and travel, tbongb he said nary word, I saw hell shining out of Urth eyes, and ma) be bell scorch you yet." Thwspeaker said this half in Jest and half in earnest, but Bill laughed scornfully, and rejoined: " What! that popinjay f Why, be hasn't plnck enough to fight a shadow; aud, if he had, I'm substance, aud he couldn't stand that, I know;" and Bill showed his enormous fist. . "That's a fact," said another of his compan ions, joining, for the first time, in the conversa tion; "but suppose he'd propose shooting-irons, would yon give him a showing!" "Did yon ever know me to craw-fish out of a fight yet!" rejoined Bill. "But," he added," "here he comes now, aud if he's pit any 'grit' in him, I'll, give him a chance to show it, and ask no favors." By this time Gaskett was qnite close to the grocery, advancing with his eyes fastened firmly on the ground, as though meditating seriously un some important matter. When m itliin a few feet of the door, he raised his eyes, and seeing, fur the first time, the young men, he slightly Iwwed, and, with a "Good evening, gentlemen!" proceeded to enter tbe grocery. At that moment, Wade placed his left foot in front of Gaskett, and, giv ing it a sudden jerk to the right, the youth's feet flew from nndcr him, and ho fell forward on his hands. Quickly recovering himself, he walked with steady step, though his eyes flashed fire, ami bis face was deadly pale, to within half a foot of Wadr, and said : "Mr. Wade, I was not aware that yon and I had erer liecn sufficiently intimate tn warrant j onr joking with me in such a manner." "Indeed!" sneered Bill; "maybe you don't like falling on yonr bauds; p'raps yon like it bet ter this away;" and, so saying, he gave the yonth a Vigorous push on the breast, and at the same time 'tripped' him from behind, and Gaskett fell flat on bis bark. Rising from the ground, he faced his assailant, with, as Bill's companion bad said, "bell chining in bis ryes," aud said, in b low, but terribly distinct voice "Mr. Wade, ou will not refuse me satisfaction for Ibis insult!" "Nary time," answered Bill; "howll yon have itf" "With whatever weapons yon may choose, sir," rejoined U.i-lctt. "I'e got no choice. Yon can name yonr time, place and weaiHins, my young gsme-cock" Bill had not left oil his Mieering manner "though I reckon the time "ill be never, the place lion liar, and the vcnions " "Howle-kiiiies,:" interrupted Gaskett; "the time now, and the place anywhere outside the village. Are yon willing, or are yon a coward as well as a bully f" "By G d!" said Wade, rising in rage from the barrel, "you shall M-e. Como along, my pop injay." And then added, "name yonr second." liaskrtt hesitnted a moment, an J then said, "I need none. Yonr friends hero can be witnesses. Seconds are useless." "Just as you please." rejoined Wade; "but wharsyonrwcnpousf Here's mine," nnd, niacins-bis band beneath bis ciuit. be drew forth an enormous Bowie-knife cueJi a one as the despe radoes of the Sonth-nrot carried some twenty years ago, aud which, more's the pity, arc "even yet occasionally used to stttle riiflk-ullies. l uave none, reniieii uasKcu, uui inai is easily rcmcriitd. There arc some for sale in the grrcery;"' ai.d, so sayiag, be stepped in tbe store. "You'll find a mate for mine in there,"' called ont the other; "and bo snre yon pay for it now, for 1 don't think your chance for coming back to do it is,worlh a d n." Gaskett made no reply to the remark of his antagouiot; but goiug up to the counter, pur chased the knife from tbe stoorkeepcr, who, hav ing heard a great part of the preceding conver sation, kindly advised the yonth to give np the idea of fighting Wade; "for," said be, "what chance n ill you stand against a man likehiml" Gaskett's only answer was to lay donu the mon ey in payment for the wrajM-n, and turning, left the store, fcllowed by the owner, who was re solved, since there was to be a fight, to enjoy tbe pleasure of witnessing it. Jnst at this moment, Lncy Batton parsed the grocery, on her way from a neighbor to her mother's house, and seeing Wadr, with tbe knife in his hand, and Gaskett pale as death he had placed the weapon he had purchased out of sight she at once surmi-eil that tbrre bad been a dif ficulty, "and without hesitation, for she knew every one of the party, she retraced her steps, and walking np to tbe group, addressed herself to .Gaskett, saying: . "What is the matter, Edwin, that you look so pale I" "I'll tell yon," broke in the wood-chopper; "he's going to fight me Bill Wade and I reck on that's enough to make any man turn pale." -oiirriy, saiu me gin, mining to (iaaketf, lor she had faced the wood-chopper as he hail deliv ered tbe last sentence, "surely yon will not pay any attention to what ke says;" and there was a tone of contempt in the way she said he. "Come, Edmnnd," she added: "I want you to walk home with me." "Hell go," again broke in Wade, "and glad of the chance. He don't like tbe idea of standing np to a man like nit" "Yon shall see!" replied Gaskett, for the first time breaking the silence- aud turninc for an in stant his flashing ryes upon the wnod-chopprr; anu, men laKing r-ncys nana, ne saui, "lie nas insulted me beyond bearing, and if I submit to it I shall feel degrailed. and " "Fight him, then!" interrupted the girl, who. with all her gentleness) was as high spirited as ary woman in the land, and her blue eyes lit up with a light that showed her whole soul was in the words. " The yonth pressed the little liaud he held, and Mrinif " r!n.ul I..- i...n e... ka -. n tA tnrneu from her quickly, for be was fearful of suvning buujo feign 'l nraknens, aim ivsi&cu away iu an opposite'dircction from which Lucy had come. The others followed, leaving the girl to contin ue her way home unaccompanied, and tbe whole party Wadr, his four friends, the shopkeeper and Gaskett proceeded rapidly through the vil lage, meeting no oqe in "the street, (all tbe inhab itants being at dinner,) aud turning to the right, entered among the tall pines that reared their tufty tops npon either side of tbe mad; aud. af ter walking for about five minutes, during which time Gaskett said not a word, while Wade was langhing and talking to his friends in the most niicoticrrneil manner, they reacnea a spot jran which the trees had been cleared preparatory to erecting a cabin. Here Wade stopped, and said: "Well, I reckon this is about as good a place as any. What d'ye sav t " "It will do," replied Gaskett, and he began taking off bis coat. Wade did tbe same. "Boys," said tbe latter, addressing those around, "you will see fair play; but I'd advise yon not to interfere, unless tbisoroung chsp should bolt,' and tben," said he, winking at bis companions, "be sure yon run after him and bring Tnni hack." This taunt was nnheeded br the other, who had taken the storekeeper aside, and giving him bis mother's address, begged, in case he fell, the storekeeper would send toiue papers, which he handed him, to his mother, and state how it hap pened that he became engaged in this affair; "and," said the youth, "tellber I bore all that a man conld, before I sought this means of re dress." Tbe shopkeeper promised, and again endeavor ed to dissuade him from the encounter, but, turn ing from him, Gaskett walked np to Wade, and saying, "I am ready!" drew tbe knife from his sheath, throwing tlie latter some ten feet from him. Wade followed suit, and there they stood, face to face the brawny wood-chopper and tbe yonng student. The fh e others were some six or eight feet off. " Wherll yon have iff" said Wade, as he flour ished his deadlv vham ra..vtt was nalo as death, but his eyes glarrd like two living coals of. sie. Wherever mn nluu t- ...Iml "tine r1rn care of yourself." and he na lance, at the ' othsrt brpart, Wade parried the Now, aad;l made a back-handed stroke at Gaskett's neck. Tbe yonth struck tbe weapon np with his own, bnt not sufficiently high, for the point of the knife struck him about an inch over tbe eyebrow, and made a deep gash on his fsir forehead, from which the blood spurted and ran trickling down his face. "I reckon you're abont satisfied!" said Wadr, stepping back a couple of feet. "You're mistaken, then," replied the. Other, wiping the blood from his eyes with his left hand) while bis right firmly grasped the knife, and his eyes absolutely glared with the ferocity of a mad tiger's making his face, now thickly smeared with blood, look like a fieod's. "Look out," ba continued, springing at the other: and forup wards of a minute, thrnsts were made rapid as lightning, neither pausing to see if tbe other was hurt. At length Gaskett made a downward eat at Wade's tarast. whs) being too late to parry it with hia knife, threw up his arm, which was cut to tbe bone, and tbe warm blood spurted from the wounds full in Gaskett's face. Both recoil ed ; Gsskett again wiping his face with bis hand, while tbe horrified spectators cried, "That'll dot that'll do!" while three of them advanced as tbongh to place themselves between tbe wound ed antagonists. But, before their purpose could he accomplished, Wade, excited to demoniac fury, rushed at the youth,, and again the thrusts be gan. Face to face, they fongbt, each scorning to yield an inch. Both were bleeding from twenty wounds, and Gaskett's face was a stream of blood; but his eyes never lost their wild bright ness, anil his lips, though absolutely livid, were as firmly pressed together as though tbey had been hewn from marble. At last Wade, excited to a pitch that made his enormous strength almost supernatural, made a side-long, sweeping en t at Gaskett's throat, which no power of tbe other conld have turned aside. Gaskett saw the danger, aud quick as thought, dropping on his knees, escaped death ; then, as he sprang to his feet, he made a back-banded cnt from left to right across the abdomen of the wood-clmpper, making a death wonnd, from which the intestines protruded. Bnt Wnde had his revenge, for seizing Gaskett by tbe hair and tbe left baud, be drove his knife through and throngh his throat, while at the same instant tbe vonth sheathed hia weauon iu the bully's heart. Wade fell back with the knife remaining in bis 1 breast. Uoskett gasped for a moment for oreatn, and struck the air w ildly with his hands, striv ing to tear the knife from bis throat. But his strength was gone. He staggered and dropped upon bis knees. At this instant Lucy Barton appeared npon tbe scene. She had followed the party, and bad ar rived in time tn witness the last act of the trage dy. She would have shrieked, bnt her voice was choked with horror, aud rushing forward, she knelt liefure her lover. For upwards of ten sec onds be gazed at her with ids large, bright, ex Cressive eye, and then, with a last gasp for breath, c fell forwnnl on her liosom dead. Four mouths from that day, a stranger, riding through C on his way to Jackson, saw a few iersons gathered round a grave, iu which a cof fin was being lowered. "Who's deadf "Tie inquired, in a low voice. "Poor Lncy Barton," replied the. man he ad dressed, looking 'up. ".Tlie knife that went throngh young Gaskett's throat, touched her heart." And this was how Bill Wade killed two per sons with one blow. , TnEWDuTTEiHV,RRVr.UiTm HOHK IM OU1U. AHlen tn tbe craves wliere niv fsthrra now rest.

CHABI.ES jam eh lever. This well-known novelist, whose recent death at Trieste is announced iu our foreign telegrams, was the son of an Irish architect, and born in Dublin, in lcTJ9. Ho was originally designed for tbe medical profession, and with that cud iu view entered Trinity College, Cambridge, attend ed lectures, and eventually took a degree. He subsequently pursued a course of study at tbe University nfGotteugen, and received a degree there. With this thorough preparation for his responsible duties, he commenced practice, and in 1832, when the cholera prevailed in Ireland, tbe Government appointed him Medical Superin tendent of a large district which indnded the City of Londonderry, and the ton ns of Newton, Limavady and Coleraine. In this highly import ant position he acquitted himself so well that n hen the abatement of tbo disease rendered bis further services unnecessary, he was attached to tbe British legation at Brussels as its physician. It was while thus engaged that he made his first important literary venture by commencing as a serial the story known as Harry Lorreqiier. The success of this was so encouraging that ho con tinued his efforts-in tbn same dinctinu, and pro duced in rapid succession, Charles O'llallcy, Jack Hinton, Tom Bnrkr, Knight orGwynnc, the Dal tonj.anda nnmher of others, w hie'h need not be rreanitufctni. While preparing the earlier of these, he assumed, from 19-12 to 1845. tho rditori- wl management of tbe Dnblin University Maga-. ztne, and at tbe same time contributed liberally to its pages. In tbe year last named, he retired to the Continent, and took np a temporary resi dence in a castle, in tbn Tyrol, afterwards loca ting at Florence. In 1858 be was appointed by Lord Derby, Vice-Consul at Spezxia, and in Fcb rnary, 1867, was transferred In the same capacity to inesie, wnere ne remained nntil his decease. His last work noticed in our issne of the 2d inst., is entitled Lord Kilgobbin, and the dedi cation of thlslmtk has a melancholy significance iu view of the recent sad event : "To tbe memory of one whose companionship made the happiness of a long life, and whose loss has left me helpless, I dedicate this book, writ ten in breaking health and broken spirits. The task that was once my joy and my pride, I have lived to find associated with my sorrow; it is not tbsa without a cause, I say, I hope this effort will be my last." Dr. Lever, thongh not entitled to a place in the front rank of fictioi. writers, was, and always will be, an exceedingly popnlar author. His novels are wonderfully attractive, to the young especially, and la what may be termed military romance he has never bad an equal. Rome of the descriptions in Charles Ollallev and Tom Burke, are magnificently done, and we may mention particularly the battle of Ansterlitz, in the Ut ter work, es a specimen of his peculiar style of handling such subjects. Ex. Mr. Hexkt HorniAX, Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Locomotive Firemen, in Conven tion iu St. Louis last week, stated in his address that "more than half the accidents that occur oo the -various railroads throughout the world are due to men who habitually nse intoxicating drinks." It this is a fact, what becomes of the regular verdict, "nobody to blame t" Is there no wonder that Mr. Hoppman comes to the con clusion that no man who uses intoxicating liq uor is fit tor any position, high or low, on any railroad T It is one hundred and thirty years since Handel brought oat for tbe first time tbe oratorio of tbe Messiah.

The Senator not being at home, I made no ef fort to see the interior of his unpretending dwell ing. It is very plain, surrounded by a hedge, the entrance to tbe house being from a side piaz za, and the doable parlor windowa face the street. Tbe street runs straight and level for about a mile, and is rather compactly built, and ornamented with shade trees on both sides. I was fortunate in finding a gentleman" who bad been acquainted with Mr. Wilson since 1833, to whom I am indebted for tbe materials gathered concerning the place and its principal citizens. He describes Wilson as he was WI1EX AX APPRENTICE, on his first appearance in Massachusetts, dressed in plain homespun, rongh in manner, with an impediment in bis speech which made it difficult to understand him when be spoke hurriedly, thoroughly in earnest, determined to know what was to Iw known, and to be a man. He was not ashamed to work, and there was not a lazy bone in his body. His ambition was to work more hoars than any other man in town, and never let ji bnlf hour g by wllbowt having accomplished an allot ten tasic, so tuat at tlie end ot eacli day, each week, each month and each year, a given number of pairs of shoes were tnmed ont, and for nil such holidays aa political conventions, public meetings, recreations, Ac, time had tn be gained. This made tbe hunts of work from five a. m, to nine p. m. One night per week was de voted tn a debating club, with, such additions at either end of the day as became necessary to gain the time for other duties and pleasures. After nine o'clock work was suspended, when tbrre nr four hours were given to study, reading, compo sition, and conversation with young men of Lis own age and pursuits. The gentleman with whom I conversed related how he and a few other young fellows were out skating one night, and after eleven o'clock tbey took a turn up a brook and narrow rnn of mead ow which was covered with ice, till tbey came in sight of a light in a little ten-by-twelre building, low, dingy, and filled with KTIOE BEXCHES, and looking in, they saw Henry Wilson hard at work, a Imok on one corner of his bench, evident ly intended tn be used for tbe snatchiog of a few sentences at intervals, when hia wearied arms and hands required a moment's rest. Two of them went in and talked for two hours, while he kept on at his labor and added twenty-five cents to his stock of worldly goods. This wss one of the nights when time waa to be gained, aud the con versation enabled him to work an hour or two longer than ho intended. In this manner he pegged away until he had accumulated; more than eight bnudred 'dollars; hia,debU were all paid, anew suit of clothes in dulged in, and at the age of twenty-three years be started for an academy in New Hampshire. Soon after this, by tbe failure of a friend to whom his money was loaned, every dollar was lost, and yonng Wilson was compelled to com mence life anew. "When I beam of this disas ter," said the gentleman, "I conld not keep back the tears' Such wss the interest this youth excited among bis sssoeiates. Bnt he was not discouraged only for tbe mo ment; and, gathering np his resolution and ener gies, started once more at the foot of the ladder, fought bis way np again step by step, ami, while rising and showing others tbe way to rise, kept his sympathies fresh with THE TOIUXO MTWADS who are wearily fighting, at great odds, the bst tle of life, and carrying with him the respect aud good will of all classes and of all parties in the enmmnnity where he ia known. Tbey univer sally speak of him in the highest terms as a man, and only a few complaints of him aa a politician. being notably those who bave'bren disappointed. in not receiving expected recognition lor services rendered. 4?o leading politician can return favor for favor in kind, and benee some must he disap pointed in hopes and calculations. rklloittfUa Prat.

At the end of nearly a generation, we find the anient expressions of a partisan Cabinet Minister equaled by the more deliberate praise of former political adversaries. Why is this f Simply because Andrew Jackson's inspiration throngh his whole life was a passion ate love of the Union a fixed and even fcrocions determination tn put down its enemies at what ever hazard nr cost. Henry Clay aud Daniel Webster lived in the affections of posterity more because they were animated by th same princi ple, than because of tho fame of the one as an orator aud the other as a statesman and jurist. They forgot jiarty hen their country waa in per il, burying or postponing animosities as against even their severest foe, Andrew Jackson, when he struck tbe key-note, and declared. that "the Union must and shall be preserved." Something like this was the seeue between George Wolf and Thaddeus Stevens, some thirty-six years ago, when, in the midst of the memorable anti-Masonic excitement which Stevens beaded against Wolf, Dallas, Bev. Mr. Spronl, aud other Masonic dignitaries even to the extent of threatening tbem with imprisonment Wolf and Stevens for got their envenomed quarrel in the .ardor with which they together pressed forward tbe great canse of popular education. No name can per ish from memory or history that is truly identi fied with cizilization and liberty. I was talking of these things the other day with an old Ohio Whig, at present a Republican, -when he related an anecdote of Old Hickory, which I bad never heard before, and which I think worth preserv ing. After Jackson's first election, in 1828, a strong effort was made tif remove General , au old Revolutionary soldier, at that time Post master in one of the principal New York towns. ne had been so fierce an Adams man that the Jackson men determined to displace him. He was no stranger to Jackson, who knew him well, and waa conscions of his private worth and pub lic services; bnt as the effort to get his place was a determined one, General resolved to undertake a journey to Washington for the pur pose of looking after liis-caae, Silas Wright bad jnst left his seat as a Representative in Congress, from New York. Never was the Empire State more ably represented. Cool, honest, profound and subtle, Mr. Wright waa precisely the man to bead a movement against the old Piwtmaster. His influence with Jackson was boundless. His tnree in debatemsde'hinrarmarch fbr-tliergiantB themselves; and as Mr. Van llnrrn was then Jsckson's Secretary of State, the combination was powerful. The old Postmaster, knowing that these two political masters were against bim, called npon tho President inimtiliately np on his arrival, and was most court eonslv received and requested to call again, which.be did several times, but nothing was said about the postoffice. Finally, the politicians finished their protest and sent it forward to Mr. Wright, with the request that it should be delivered at the first opportu nity. Tbe old Postmaster heard from his friends at home that the-, important document was on its wsy, so he resolved on a coj dt main. Tbe next day there was a Presidential reception, and aruoug the early visitors was General . After a cordial greeting by Jackson, he qnietly took his seat ana waited nntil tbe long train of visitors bad'dnly sainted tbe nation's Chief, and had passed through tbe Graud East Room on tbeir way home. Tbe President turned tp his venera ble guest with some surprise as be noticed him still seated on one of tbe sofas, and entered into familiar conversation with him, when to his amazement, the old soldier said: "General Jack son,1! have come here to talk to you abont my office. The politicians want to take it from me, and tbey know I have nothing else to live npon." The President made no reply till tbe aged Post master began to take off bis coat in the most ex cited nianuer, when Old Hickory broke out with the inquiry: "What in Heaven's name are yon going to dot Why do yon lake off) oar coat in this public placet "Well, sir, I am going to show yon my wounds, which I received in fight ing for my country against tbe English!" "Pnt Hon at once, sir!" wss tbe reply; "lam much surprised that a man of yonr sge should make sneb aa exhibition of himself." and tbe ryes of tbe iron President were suffased with tears, as, without another- word, he bade his ancient foe good evening. Tbe very next night the crafty and able New York politician called at tbe White. House ami sent in his rant. He waa immediate ly ushered iuto tbe presence, and fonnd Jackson in loose' gown and slippers, seated before a Mar ine wood lira onietlr smoking his long pipe.

His Early Capture fey the IasUaas, In tbe Helena, Montana, Gaxttle we find qnite an interesting account of tbe adventures uf a boy, responding to the name of Billy Bent, who was brought up by old Col. Bent; of Bent's Fort, on the Arkansas river, and who is known as ona of tbe early pioneers of this region. The boy was purchased by Col. Bent from a strolling band of Cheyeunes. AH thst young Beut knew of his history, wss what the Cbeyennes related to Col. Beat, on bis purchase, which was to the effect that during the California emigration across the plains, a train was attacked by a land of Cbey ennes, and the whole party was butchered with the exception of Billy, who was then a suckling infant, and be was cared fur and brongbt up br ibe Indians who captured him, and taken with them throngh all their wanderings, from ths Arkansas river tn the Red river of the North, and wbeu purchased by Col. Bent, be fully believed, be was au Indian, and conld apeak no other lan guage but the Indian dialect. Billy was taught tbe English and French languages, and to rear and write at Fort Bent; but bis roving disposi tion led him, when able tn handle a riSo and rids a caynse, to desert his benefactor aajj seek his old hannts among the Indians. In the fall of 1863 he turned up in Helena, Montana, and sought for and obtained employment in tbe Gazette job of fice, and remained there long enough to earn tba Crice of a horse, rillo and outfit, when beattached imself with the surveying party of A. J. Sim-, ninns, who were reported a few days ago to have been massacred by a ferocious band of Sioux. Later advices, howeves, show that 8immons and bis party are all right at Fort Musclesbell, while Billy is preserved to continue his bold adven tnrrs.. He is a natnral artist, and will sketdr from memory any mountain scenery asked for. He-otnted tbafrtne 'Sqwnw-tawgbt him howto paiut rude figures of birds and animals upon roln-s, bnt one day he found a case of pencils and a Hndson Bay receipt book, and on each receipt was tbr picture of a female. He had never seen, anything like it beforehand having learned tho nse of the pencils, he soon learned to draw a fao simile of the cut, and from practice became a first-class sketcher, as related above. A afrteruslaed Iaallaa Fighter. A correspondent of the Chicago Trisaae gives a. graphic description of an Indian fighter. He sayst "At Fort D.J. Russel near Cheyenne which ia no fort at all, bnt merely a beautiful villa of barracks, officers' quarters, collages, and along green lawn, where a band of mnsie jilaya every evening I beard an account of suDfilcer celebra ted for Indian prowess. The subject waa tbe war in Arizonia, and Crook'a subatitntlon for Stone man. 'Ob, Indian hunting is Crook's speciality,' says one. 'The fact is-Crook is nothing but an Indian any way. I mean that his mind, physiog nomy and edncation are all Indian. Look at his face the high cheek bones, the contour of the sknll; snd his manners stolid, separata and ad-" verse to talk. He is a perfect Indian in eudur ance.' "Ho can take his gun and cross the desert, sub slstingon the way, where you wonld starve.
