A writer who is contributing a series of interesting sketches oi early Bfieaea in the Southwest to the Natchez Cou rier, thus tells something about some lamous robbers who were the terror of the country aboOt sixty years ago: In those early times the Western men brought their produce down the river in Matboats, and when they sold out their cargoes they would return in large companies together by land. 1 once noticed that three men made their appearance here, oue of whom was remarkable for his very ferocious appearauce. He had a scar of a deep saber cut aero his brow. They were drer-sed like backwoods fanners, and minified ireely wilh the boatmen. They " chaffered" a good deal about the price of a great many articles, but nothinir seemed to satisfy them. Hav- iug made themselves acquainted with all the boatmen and caroused with them a good deal, they at last disap- Beared. As they were walking up the hill 1 heard something like the follow ing conversation, though it was in a suppressed whisper: "i say, Captain," saiil the smallest ofthe three, " there's treesc worth nickiiiir down there." Hold your jaw, Little Harp," replied the other, "you are everlasting MaQi bing; I'll have to masli your mown lor you yet, before 1 get you broken iu, you infernal villain, you." About two monlhi alter these ruf fians had disappeared, the whole couu tiy was startled by the news that a large company of Keiituckians had been robbed liya band of robbers upon the Nashville trace. Shortly after, three gentlemen, a father anil his iwo sous, started to Kentucky, and w ben they had got pretty well into the wilderness they, too, Were met and robbed of everything they had. This excited the community to the highest pitch of indignation. They besought Gov. Claibourne to bring the power of the Government to bear and an t the robbers. He accordingly offered a large reward for them, dead or alive. Great was the merrimi at made by Masou that was the bandit's name -and his men when they read the Gov ernor's proclamation. They laughed at and ridiculed it. How long he could have defied the authorities no one knows, if there had not been treachery in the band. The old adage that there is honor among thieves did not hold good in this case. Ope niglil they were sitting around their blazing camp fires. Tbey had just made a successful raid upon the settlements, and Mason was distributing the booty. Little Harp crept op behind him and buried a tomahawk in his head, tfaaob fell dead and his guilty soul was Ushered into the presence of his Jlaker. Jhe eunspirat'.rs tnen ehopped off his hegd and brought it to wa-mngion, tne scat ot Government, and claimed the reward. lieu it was noised about that the great rob ber, .Mason, was killed, and thai his head was in Washington for identifi cation, all the people in the settlement Du near Hocked to see it. Many whd had be, victims recognized it at once nnd swoVe to itj twruwaano mistaking those ghastly grim features, with the terriole scar. The men who had done the deed w ere halted at first as public benefactors, lor they had rid the world of monster. Now, although the QOTejrnor had promised a large reward, yet BUfbCt Innately w hen he called for the money it was baud that the treasury was empty (this seems to Lr R chronic complaint with my dear otd hiato.; Of course the captors of Mason Were delayed i getting their pay. This led to the UrtrrhnT) Of the conspira tors, and it so happened the old gentleman and 'his two sons, who had been rubbed, afupp among th(. numlier who came to look si the robler's head. The moment they laid their eyes on Little Ham they ex changed glances. The father Hipped out, and in a little whiie appeared wilhpn officer. Raising his voise and pointiiie, finger at Little Harp, he said, '! chargi- you, t'r as being one of Mason's bund of rot.u.i-.." Little Harp was seized, and his ac cbmpilue also. This was almost as startling to the crowd as w as the sight of Mason's bead' At that tune thero was a little town in Jefferson County, near the Chab ley's fork of Cole Creek, named Green ville, in honor of Gen. Nathaniel , Green. The original site was bought from the estate of (Mum, was alter ward added to form the estates of Abijah Hum j,i;d Ferdinand Clai borne, and the foliowut$ uaajjed men were its-trustees: 1. V. Bauc.de, ij. Downs, ,. Kllis, R. McKay, and . Hobert Cox. This little town, which has since passed into the "tilings that were," was then the county seat; thither I.itJIe Harp w;r conveyed, anil was regularly tiiud and convicted.

I union, the celebrated caricaturist who died recently at Baden-linden, Dcribc bhi nee. Numbere of anecdotes are told of his feau in this way. One day a young man came into his studio and told him that he had a sister mortally ill, and that bin family wished to have her portrait. They dared not ask her to sit; to do so wouldriiave been to awaken her suspicion. In a word, Danton undertook to reproduce her f-atures from memory. 'Ihe next day the brother informed his sister that he j intended to make her a present ot a iewel for her next ball.
