Anecdote of a Louisiana Judge.
Old Judge L-?a, who was for years the
circuit jugde in that portion of Louisiana
known as Attakapas county. was eelebrated
for hta legal learning, and was (greatly beloved
by his neighbors and friends He was stern
apright, and honest?and the death of the
good old man. which occurred some years ago
wag universally regretted Lhroaghoat the State.
But with all his book lore and legal attain
ments, he was perhaps the greenest man at
oards in his entire oirouit. it has been said
that he did not know the " Jack ef trumps1' i
from a diamond. In the village of Opeiou
eas, three individuals were sitting round a
table, in one of those doggeries, " with a bil
liard table attached," whiohareao common
in the Creole parishes, playing a small game
of three-handeu poker, when a quarrel en
sued, whieh resulted in an aggravated ca e of
assault and battery This did not end the af
fair, for at the next term of the court, at the
head of ihe docket stood, " The State of Lou
isiana vs. John Allen, for an assault and bat
tery. with intent, to kill, on the body of ?nos
Ihe trial came on, and the only witness to
the affray was a Captain Johnson, who wa?
the third hand in the game. Johnson was
the skipper of one of those crafts which trans
port sugar from that section of the country to
New Orleans, and was a self-confident, go
abend fellow, and was undaunted before the
judge and jury, as he would have been before
the crew ot his only little oraft After being
sworn, he was directed to tell the Court and
jury everything he knew about the affair. Af
ter clearing his throat he commenced by
stating, ' that him and Griggs and John Allen
were over at Boullett'sgrocery, the second day
of election, When Allen proposed tbat thev
should have a small game of poker, and all
agreed to it. and we went up stairB and eat
down to the game; dii not know that there
was any harsh feelings between Griggs and
Allen, or I wouldn't a played, but heard af
iiere the witness was interrupted by the
court, who directed him to keep all hearsays
o himself and confine strictly to the facts of
the case.
The witness continued:
"Well, we sat down to the table, Griggs
sot there, John Allen here, and I there (mak
ing a diagram of the clerk's table in order to
elucidate the position of the parties.) John
Allen dealt the cards, I went blind. Griggs he
went blind, and John Allen wouldn't see
The Judge, who was a little deaf, was in
the habit ot using an ear-trumpet of his hand
tor the purpose of sharpening his hearing?
and throwing his head a little forward and
sideways, interrupted the witness by a?king
him, " what was the reason that John Allen
didn't see Griggs ?"
" Tbe witness replied, " I don t know, but
he would not look at him "
" Proceed." says the Judge.
"Well, I saw him and he saw me, and just
at that minute ''
" Stop, air." says the Judge, throwing him
self into a hearing attitude?" did I under
stand you to say that you went bliud?"
" Yes, sir! I went blind, and Griggs he was
blind, and A!len wouldn't see, but I saw
Griggs, and then he saw?"
"Stop, sir," said the Judge, "I don't un
dare and you, speak louder.'"
"Yea, sir! I went blind, and Griggs he was
blind, and Allen wouldn't see, but 1 saw
Griggs, and then he saw?"
" Witness," exclaimed the Judge, striking
tbe benoh with his olenched fist ?? do I hear
you aright, sir ? Do you say that you went
blind, and then you saw?"
"Tee, air," replied tbe witnees "I saw
Griggs and Griggs saw, and just at that "
"Stop, sir," said the Judge "Mr Clerk,
fine the witness fifty dollars for oonfempt of
Court, and direct the sheriff to take him to
jail, and there to keep him until he receives
further orders from tbe Court. Call up the
?extcaseMr Clerk "
Captain Johnson was dumfounded, and did
not awake to tbe reality of his condition, until
the Sheriff laid his hands on him when he
exclaimed -God a mighty, Mr. Judge, what
have I done, that I must go to jail ?"
The Judge, who was pu>ple with rage, did
not deign to reply to poor Johnson, but reit
erated the order with increased vehemence,
and the junior members of the bar, who had
been anticipating the fix that the Captain
would eventually be placed in, were convul
sed with laughter, which increased the rage
of the old Judge to the highest pitch. The
profcecuting attorney endeavored to enlighten
the Jadge, and eventually succeeded, but not
until he had produced a pack of cards, and
after dealing out three hands, made the blind
18 clear as day to the J udge
The fine and imprisonment were remitted,
order was restored in the Court, and Captain
Johnson was allowed to proceed with his tes
timony.? N. Y. Spirit of the Times.
The Effect of Stale Wheat or Flour.
A miller has come forward at Guildhall,
Louden, with a new theory as to the origin of
ouolera. He stated ihat in 1842 he purchased
large quantity of old foreign flour in bond,
and while tastiDg it for the purpose of aepa
rating the fresher from the staler, both he and
hit) men were seised with excessive salivation,
accompanied with disordered bowels He
tried some of the same old floor in his own
family, and the consequence was that three of
his children were seised with violent purgings
and Bickness, as in case of cholera, which dis
ease soon after made itsappearanoe in London
After attentively watching itB progress, he
was convinced it arose from the consumption
of old breadstuff*, and be accordingly deter
mined not to supply any old flour to his cus
tomers. The result proved that not one of
them bad the oholera, even in its most incipi
ent stage, althoogh exposed to the same dis
advantages in other respeots as those around
them, who were daily falling victims to this
sad malady. He wrote to Sir Robert Peel,
who was then Prime Minister, and his letter
was referred to the Board of Health, who
granted him an interview, but as he was
not a medieal man, they merely Hstened
to him. and there the matter finally ended
On one oocasion be became aware that a quan
tity of stale wheat was about being shipped
from London to Leeds, and he foretold that if
that oorn was allowed to reach its destination
the cholera would follow in its wake. Within
fifteen days after the oholera broke out in
Leeds with great virulence. He said that in
all thfe Russian wars against Turkey and Po
land the oholera had always accompanied the
aiouies of either country when traversing nav
igable rivers; and in the war of independence
in Poland, when news arrived that Warsaw
would have to draw upon the same old stores
that had previously given to the Russians that
disease, the visitation did come, attended with
the n>ost calamitous results. lie did not com
plain of five or seven years' old wheat. He
alluded to thai which was received in the
above countries in lieu of mouey for taxes,
and which was stored in warehouses for fifteen
or twenty years without seeing daylight It
was remarkable that cholera rarely appeared
during years of plenty; but in ^ndia. when
failures of the rice crops produced a scarcity
of food, the old stores were ransacked, and, ai
a matter of oourse, the cholera oommenoed iti
