! CU IlawlUns and the Court.
" , "', 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 nous. 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 blast 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 subcurian fortification. " My God, Mr, Sheriff," said the little tiger on the bench, "what is all that blowinz and howline a- boutl" " 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 sounds! "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 unpunishable. 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. from his dogs, the rustling of his fodder, the clangor ui uw tuuee po!s,-ana trie sonorous gong notes 01 mi cbarged. at full jspeednpon the8he; Talk of May !

The horses of the squad, maddened with ; fright, reared, and , plunged, and either threw, their riders or dashed off with them precipitately from the field. vThe horses hitched about at racks and trees participated in the panic, and in five seconds there was a universal stampede. The Judge's pony dashed off with a speed that was highly creditable, to his short legs and Indian origin ; and after AzWthe Colonel dashed, with all his dread ful din, in full blast !

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 how.!' 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." ..The Touirtt Uamc Cock on ltccord.
