" , "', bt Tirs AinpoB of ? simos suoos." r
. Some years ago I knewjan individual, whose sobri
quet was u Col. Hawkins,' who was the most perfect
specimen of the 4are-deTil, frontier man that I ever
Baw, at least in Alabama His real name was Jim
Fielder to ;whi,ch his neighbors frequently added
the expressive pre-fix " Dxris..n And he was a Devil
fearing neither God,' man, nor beast, and if not invul
nerable, possessing at least a tenacity of life that was
most, astonishing; - He had been once -struck down
with a broad-axe, and his brain absolutely cloven to
a considerable depth, and for several inches in length ;
yet he made no particular difficulty of surviving, and
that, too, .with all his, faculties uninjured.' . 5 .
The " Colonel7? being what, in his region and times,
was called a cow-driver, had cultivated the art of
equitation, until he and his favorite .bay whom he
named "HeUf became a perfect centaur... No feat
was too difficult for them.; I have myself seen them
do things which would make the gallant Col; May's
blood run cold. Hell was the most perfectly trained
animal that I ever saw; followed his master like a
dog, and when the Colonel got drunk and lay in the
road, would stand by him and guard him for hours.
" Col. Hawkins" used to be very fond of attending
the Circuit Courts of his county, at which, after a
time) he became an insufferable nuisance. The Sher
ii& were always afraid of him; the tavern-keepers
dreaded him ; and the Judges never could get hold of
him. In one. of his mad freaks, I have seen , him,
while court was in 'session, mounted on " Hell," charge
up the steps and into one door of the Court House,
furiously along the aisle, and, with a tremendous leap,
dear the steps, out of the other.
I remember well the first, session at which' I ever
saw him. Court was held, temporarily, in a two
story, wooden building; one end of which rested on
the ground, the other (the front,) being on brick
work, or blocks, two or three feet high. A Judge
was presiding .whose distinguished trait was a tyran
ical petulance a judicial wasp whose sting was ever
protruding. His Honor, however, met his match in
" Col. Hawkins," and, no doubt, thinks of him to this
day with emotins of horror. , ..:'.''.,
. ,Fpx the first day or two of the court week our he
ro, being rather sobers behaved remarkably well ; but
about the middle of the week he got on a regular
frolic, and immediately turned his attention to the
disturbance of tho court. For this purpose, he had
prepared a number of loaves of bread, and collecting
all the scraps of the kitchen of his tavern, he pro
ceeded to " fort" himself under the Court-house. His
citadel was impregnable on one side, by reason of the
house having one end on the ground ; and all the
other approaches the Colonel industriously fortified
by building walls of large loose rocks: leaving only
a single entrance, and a few port-holes through
which he might cast his missiles at any adventurous
besieger. . i . .
Here it must be remarked, that the town was par
ticularly populous in the dor wav if that be not a
solecism and Jim being aware of the fact, had pro
vided himself with a hunting horn, an instrument on
which he was a most capital performer. There were
in the village, at the time, I think, three full packs
of hounds: and as to the curs, though I never took
tlieir census, I can certify that they were multitudi
Prepared now at all points, the Colonel took his
place within his " fort," and waited until a sound of
bustling from above indicated that the court was
transacting business. Then, toot, toot, to-too, to-too
toot, toot toot! went his horn.
Three " several and distinct" simultaneous howls,
from different quarters of the town, responded to tho
Toot ! toot ! to-too ! to-too ! toot ! toot ! toot !
Again three dire howls responded : but this time
they seemed converging to a common centre Jim's
" My God, Mr, Sheriff," said the little tiger on the
bench, "what is all that blowinz and howline a-
" I s'pose," replied the Sheriff, with a wild look, fax
he knew the Tartar he had to deal with, "I s'pose
it's a comp'ny of hunters going out after deer."
"War' the . Judge invariably sounded the e in
well, a short " Wal, my God ! do the hunters of this
country hunt on the public square ."'
Toot! toot! toot! to-hoo to-to-to-to to-hoot! went Jim's
horn again ; and the hounds, with a multitude of their
half-brethren "of low degree," having by this time
assembled under the house, sent up a long, a loud,
and a most deafening response. Jim then gave them
all some bread and meat scraps, in token of their ap
proval. He then blew "another blast," and again
fifty or sixty canine tliroats belched forth the hideous
"My God! Mr. Sheriff, I fine" you ten dollars,"
said the irritated Judge " Go and stop that noise."
The Sheriff went down, and having ascertained the
strength of the Colonel's position, endeavored to coax
him out. .
"Come out, Jim, old fellow, and III stand treat; I
will, by George !" V
" Toot ! toot I1' was the reply ; and then the howl
from the dogs who began " to let themselves out."
The Judge, fined the first deputy, up stairs, five
dollars, for the new attack upon his nerves.
Several adventurous special deputies at length went
under, to take our hero " by storm ;" but they very
soon returned 'with bruised heads and defiled clo
thing. Jim, with inimitable sangfroid, held the horn
to his mouth with one hand, while with the other he
sent his rocks with terrible effect at his assailants.
His allies, too, the dogs, gave him occasional sly as
sistance, bv nibbling at the more cxnosed parts of the
persons of the invaders ; and these Deing obliged to
go " upon,all fours," under the house, these " attacks
in the year" were in the highest degree vexatious ana
Toot ! toot ! toot !
Howl ! howl howl ! howl !
The contagion spread to the crowd assembled on
me puoiic square,
" And each for madness ruled tho hour
Would trv his own expressive pow'r."
Yell after veil went up from the crowd ! All was
confusion ; and as peal after peal of the odd and min
gled discord floated up, roar after roar of unsup-
pressed laughter shook the Court-room !
The Judge was pale with rage. Every fibre of his
frame trembled with excitement ;.,but he could only
fine so he fined the Sheriff ah hundred dollars for
reporting the Colonel's fort impregnable, himself in
vincible, and his forces determined to stand to him,
to a dog I He then adjourned court, " until the nm
Bance could be abated."
As soon as the Colonel perceived that he had stop
ped all. legal proceedings, ho suspended his blasts,
and dealt out double rations to his forces.: From one
of bis port-holes, in front, observing that the Judge
was strolling about on the square, and that the She
riff was consulting with a dozen or so of his friends,
he watched his opportunity, and horn in hand, he
slipped out, unperceived except by. friends, and reach
ed his steedv which was tied in the bushes near by
Mounting u Hell," he " blew a blast so loud and long,"
that' every hound responded at once ; and in a mo
ment more, dashed in upon the square, with his fol
lowers in full cry,! , .Here he went, " like mad,", now
clearing an old woman and her cake stand at a jump,
and now bounding lightly over a group of half a do
xen u a fallen log. Ye gods ! how the crowd scat
tered! Espvine the Judge, he dashed up to him-
circled round him, in Camanche style, and blowing
his horn the while, evoked the most hideous howls
from his troop! Round and round he dashed the
J ud ire petrified in centre, pawed, mouthed, and smelt
of by the hounds, and stunned overpowered by their
hideous din ! .Never before u speak metapnoncauy;
was the ermine so villainouslv defiled !
Havinsr accomplished his purpose of " bedevilling "
a Judge, who had the reputation of being a Marti
net, Jim retreated, in good order, from the square to
the thicket at the back of the court-house. He knew
Mtrhnt. wmild fftllnw. and - fully prepared for it. He
had procured him a whiskey barrel, minus one head;
and a foot or so above the bung hole, had cut an open
ing about six inches in diameter. By . small cords,
he had attached to the outside of the barrel two large
bundles of fodder, a fragment of old stove-pipe, and
three superanuated coffee pots.,: - '
As soon as Jim had left tho .sauarc .the Judge or
dered the Sheriff to summon a posse, and take him, at
an r 13X9 and the Sheriff instantly summonea eu
ty or thirty of the hundreds who had horses hitched
on the square, and ordered them into line to receive
his directions. The Judge borrowed a pony to go
along, ana see his mandate executed. .
Jim, who had been watching their : operations sly
ly, as soon as they seemed nearly complete, blew-ft
blast, mounted " Hell," and drawing the barrel up
after him, placed it over himself ; and taking the
reins through the hole, rode leisurely on, till in view
of the Sheriff's sauad. when, with a loud toot, a how.

and in five seconds there was a universal stampede.

J5Sri.hat Judge hasn't oeen on inai circuu smco :
In Nashville, many years ago, there resided a gen-'
tleman of great hospitality, large fortune, and though
uneducated was possessed of hard knot sense; .Col,
W. had been elected to the Legislature and had been
also judge of the county court, . .
, JJis elevation, howeyer, naa maae mm some wnat
pompous, and he became very fond of using big words.
On his farm he had a large and : mischievous ox, cal
led " Big Brindle," which frequently broke down his
neighbors' fences and committed other depredations,
much to the Colonel's annoyance, r . :-...y
One morning after breakfast, in presence of some
gentlemen who had staid , with him over night, and
who were now on their way to town, he called his
overseer and said to him : " JVir. Auen, i aesire you
to impound Big Brindle, in order that I may hear no
more animadversions or his eternal depredations."
Allen bowed and walked off, sorely puzzled to
know what the Colonel meant.; i So after Col. W.
left for town he went to his wife and asked her what
Col. W. meant by telling him to "impound" the ox.
Why, said she, " the Col, meant to tell you to put
him up in a pen." Allen left to perform the feat,
for it was no inconsiderable one, as the animal was
very wild and vicious, and after a great deal of trou
ble and vexation he succeeded. "Well," said he,
wiping the perspiration from his brow and soliloqui
zing, "this is impounding, is it t Now I am dead sure
the old Colonel will ask me if I impounded Big Brin
dle, and I'll bet I puzzle him as bad as he did me."
The next day the Colonel gave a dinner party, and
as he was not aristocratic, Allen, the overseer, sat
down with the company. After the second or third
glass of wine was discussed, the Uolonel turned to
the overseer and said : "Eh, Mr. Allen, did you im
pound Mr. Brindle, ; sir 1" Allen straightened him
self, and looking round at the. company, said : v i es,
I did, sir, but old Brindle transcended the impannel
of the impound and scatterlophislocated all over the
equinimity of the forest," The company burst into
an immoderate fit of laughter, while the Colonel's
face reddened with discomfiture.
"What do you mean by that, sir said he. "Why,
I mean, Colonel," said Allen, "that old Brindle being
prognosticated with an idea of the cholera, ripped
and tared, snorted and pawed dirt, jumped the fence,
tuck to the woods, and would not be impounded no
This was too much : the company roared again, in
which the Colonel was forced to ioin, and in the
midst of the laughter, Allen quitted the table, say
in er to himself as he went, "I reckon the Colonel
won't ask me to impound any more oxen."
