A the unfortunate girl, to tattcfutly drewse-d, to incomparable at to personal charat, calm and smiting, took her place Vefore the bar of her Judge, a aiunaar of admiration arose from the remained motionless, with hi forehead bowed on hit hand,, like one buried In deep thought or (lumber.

I can never forget my first vision d John Taylor. It waa in the court hocte at Lewisburg, Conway county, Arkansas, in the summer of 1838. He occasion itself possessed terrible iattrest. A vast concourse of specta ten hid assembled to witnew the trial of a young and beautiful girl on an indictment for murder. The Judge wiitcd at the moment ior the Sheriff to bring in the prisoner, and the eyes cf the impatient multitude all centred en the dcor ; when suddenly a stran ger entered, whose appearance rivet ed universal attention. Hero is bis portrait : figture, tall, lean, sinewy, and straight as an ar row ; n face, sallow, billions, and twitching incessantly, with nervous irritability ; a brow, broad, massive, teemed filled with wrinkles, but not from age for he was scarcely forty ; tt$, rcddih yellow, like tho wrath ful eagle, as bright and piercing and finally, a mouth with lit of cast iron, thin, curled, cold, and sneering, the intense expression of which looked the linng embodiment ot an uunrcaincu curse'. Ho was habited in a suit of new buckskin, ornamented after tho hfhicn of Indian cc-stume, with hues of every color of the rainbow. KlboVinK his way slowly through the crowd, and apparently unconscious that he was regarded as a phenome non, needing explanation, this singu lar being advanced, and, with tho haughty air of a king ascending the throne, seated himself within the bar thronged as it was, with the disciples tfCoke and Blackstone, several of whom it was known, esteemed them wlves as far superior to those old and famous maslerf. The contrast between the oulland uh garb and disdainful countenance of the stranger,cxciUd, especially, tho risibility of the lawyers ; and the jun ior rnemocrs Dcgan a suppressed uuer which crew louder, and soon swept around tho circle. They doubtless rarrosed the intruder to be some wild hunter of tho mountains, who bd never before seen the interior of a hall of Justice. Instantly the cause sad obiect of the laughter perceived it, turned his head gradually, so as to pve each laugner a iook- nis ups torled with a killinc smile of infinite Kom his vcllow eves shot arrows of lightning his tongue, protruding thrsugU his teeth, literally writhed w Eke a scrncnt. and ejaculated its asp like poison in a single word.: Sava Ss !' No pen ean describe the deG aat force whieh he threw into that term, no peoeil ean paint the infef aal furor of his utterance, although it hardly exceeded a whisper. But he accented every letter as it were a upcrat emission of fire that scorch ed bis quivering lips ; laying horrible eaphjuns on tha S.both at the begin sag and end of the word'Savagca !' It was the growl of the red tiger m the bias of rattlesnake. The genes! gate, however, was di vtrtod by the advent of the fair prison er, who ibra rarne in, urrounded by Itr guard. The apparation was enough M drive a baint mad : lor brre was a Kjle of beauty to bewilder the tamed bcaginatioe, and melt the coldest heart, leaving ia both isaagi nation and Wan a ekaaaies picture, enameled in tit. and nsed ia a fraawc of gold from tit tiarv. Il was a spell of tncuani sws4 lo be fell as well as Ken.

The Judge turned to the prisoner ; " Esasaa Jdioor, the court has been in formed that your counsel, Col. Linton, is sick ; have you employed any other V She answered, in a voice as sweet as the warbling of the nightingale, and as clear asthw song of the sky-fark My etMMle1tav bribed all the law yerseven my own to be sick ; but God will defend the innocent 1" At this rcsonsc, to touching in its simple pathos, a portion of tbe auditors but zed applause, and tho rest weep. On the instant, however, the stran ger, whote appearance had previously excited such merriment, started to his feet, appn acbed the prisoner, and whis pered something in bcrcar. She bound ed six inches f ram the floor, uttered a piercing shriek, and then stood tremb ling as if in the presence of a ghost from htcrnity ; while the singular be ing bad caused her unaccountable erne lion addressed the court in his shari ringing voice, sonorous na the sound of bell-lnelul 'May it plcac your honor, I will ns sumc I lie task of defending the lady?' ' IV hat " exclaimed the nstonUlicd Judge, 'arc you a licensed attorney.' 'The nnettion is irrelevnnt and im material,' replied the stranger, with n vcnerouH sneer, as lue recent statue en titles any person to act as counsel at the request of party." 'llut does the prisoner request it,' in quired the Judso. 'Let her speak for herself,' said the stranger. 'I do,' was her nnswer ns a long drawn sigh escaped, that seemed to rend her very heart Mrings. The case immediately progressed ; nnd as it had a tinge of romantic mys tery, we will epitomise the substance of the evidence. About twelve months before, the de fendant had arrived in lliu villige, and uncned an establishment of millinery. Ursulins in a row connected with her hop, and all alone, ?he prepared the ar ticlvjt connected with her highly rcpeet ed und honorable trade with unwearied lalxir and consummate taste. Her habits were secluded, modest and retir ing ; and hence she might have hoped to avoid notoriety, but for the precious gift.lhat extraordinary beauty winch loo often, nnd to the oor nnU Inenuiess al ways, prates a curse. &ne was soon sought after by all those glilteiing tire- dies ol fashion, nut mo neautiiui stranger rejected them all with unutter able scorn and loathing. Among these rejected admirer wns one of n charac ter from which the fair milliner hml everything to fear. Ilirnm Shore was at once opulent, influential nnd dissipa ted. He was himself licentious, brave and ferociously revengeful the uio-.t famous duellist of tho south-west, it wn generally known thnt he had made advances to win tho favor ol the lovely Emma, nnd had shared the fate of all other wooer a disdainful repulse. At nine o'clock on Christmas night, 1837, the people of LcwUburg were startled bv a loud scream of immortal terror, while, following with scarcely nn interval, came successive reports of fire 1 . .1 arms, one, two, uirce, wuu a uozeii deafening roars. They tlcw to thcrhop of the milliner whence the sounds pro ceeded; pushed bnck the unfastened door, u scene of liorror was presented. There she stood in the centre of the room, with a revolver in each hand, every barrel discharged, her features pale, her eyes flashed wildly, but lips 1 .i ...r - t t..i :i a.i uarico wiin a ii-iiui mi i it. iiiv.

At the ouUct, he dealt in puro logic, separating and com bining IBe proven fuels, till the whole ma of confused evidence looked trans parent as a globe of glow, through which the innocesu-e of his client shone, brilliant a a sunbeam ; and the jurors nodded to each other of thorough con viction t that, thrilling whbpcr, and fix- cl concentration, and the language, sim ple ns a child s, had convinced nil. He then changed his posture, so as to sweep the bar with hi glance t nnd began to tear and rend his legal adver saries, uts sauow lace riowci h a heated furnace, his eyes resembled liv ing coals t and his voice became the clangor of a trumpet. I have never, before or since, listened lo such mur derous denunciations. It was like Jove's eagle charging a flock of crows. It was like Jove himself hurling red- hot thunderbolts among the quaking ranks ot conspiracy or inferior gods ! And vet in the highest tempest of his fury he seemed calm ; he employed no gesture save one the flash ol a long fore-finger direct in the cyts of his foes. He painted their venality and unmanly menaces, in coalescing, for money, to hunt down a poor nnd friend less woman, till a shout of stifled rngu arose from the multitude, and even some of the jury cried 'Shame 1' He changed the theme once more. Ilis voice grew mournful as a funeral song, and his eyes filled with tears, as he traced n vivid picture of man's cru elties and woman s wrong, with pecul iar illustrations in the case of his client, till one half of the audience wept like children. Hut it was in the peroration that he reached the zenith, at once, of terror and sublimity. His features were as livid as those of a corpse, his very hair appeared to stand on end : his nerves shook as with u palsy ; he tossed his hands wildly towards licav en, each finger stretched apart and quiv ering like the flame of a candle, he closed with the bust words of the deceas ed Hiram Shore: 'Tell my mother that I am dead and gone to hell !' His em phasis on the word hell embodied the uciim nnd ideal of all horror ; it was n wnil of immeasurable despair.
