' Fortune favors the brave." A military officer with 44om we haie hg been intimate, relates two incidents connected with Croghan's gallant defen eesof Fort Stevenson, one of which af. fords a strong positive, and ,he tither a sIsenger negative proo for the above adage. As the B'ritish and Indian, in their op erations, had violated pledges and' tiie usage of civilized warfare by wantonly mulering their prisoners. the members of Croghan's little baud. (only 100 strong with a single six-pounder, and surrotfi ed by about 600 British troops, and thrice that number of Indians,) had mutually agreed to stand their ground to the last and, sell their lives as deaply as' possibl. When all was realy,. thie Diritish com mander sent a messenger, under a flag of trace, to trcat fur a surrender of the Fort. Croghan, pointing to him as he approach ed, exclaimed:' "It will not do to let him enter here and'see our weakness ; who will volus teer to meet him?" As it was pretty certain that whoever should leave the Fort on such-a mi'ssion would bo murdered by the dastard fue there was a brief pause, when Ensign Shipp replied: '3 will upon one condition."' "MWha: is it ?"'asked-Croghant "?led.-e me your word as an officer nid' man or honor, that you wil? keep that gun bearing directly upon me, and that you will fire it off the moment you see me riain my hand." The pledge was given, and Shipp wenr forth. To alt the arguments-and persuasions of the enemy, his unwavering reply was 1 I an i!,tucted to say that we defend that Fort." Soon the Indians began to surrender him. One clutched his epaulette. nnoth er his sword. Shipp, who was a rman of Hteraulean frame, releeied himself by a powerful effort, and turning tu the enemy coolly said : "Sir. I have not pett myself under the protection of yow truce without knowing your mode of warfare. You see that Igim, pointing- to the solitary six pound er, it is well charged with grape. and I have the solemn pledge of my command grT-twrrr Vlrnt - - sreua4"WnUM ,t, -- that I- give him the signal. 't herefore re strain these men and'respect' the lw of war, or you shall instantly accompany me to the other world." This was enough. Shipp was no more molebted ; lie returned' th hit enmiades its safety. and funght out the desperate ac tion that ensued and obtained promotibi fur his bravery. The circumstance refered to at the head'of thi5 article, was told as Aollows:: After the British and Indians had'with drawn, Croghan. missed one- man (only one) who had helonged to- his little hand, and all'eforts for his discovery, were for some time unsuccessrfl. At length his remains were discovered in the garret of one of the bl'ck-houbes, where lie had crept fir safety and was cut into by a cannon ball. All the rest. considering' their chances of life not worth a' thought, had only sought to do their duty, and escaped alive. from perhaps the most desperate fight on record. The only mian that was killed happened to be a coward.-N. Y. Sun Atlas. GENERAL SA5S HOUTO.-b the lite discussion which took place in Harrison county, Texas, betweeir General Sam Houston and Mr. Wigfall, the latter gen tleman, complained that' the hero of Sani Jacitnto had called himn out of his name, by styling him, 'Mr. WiggletaiI," begged tham lhe might be excnsed for applyiniglo he diet ingu ished Senator, the familiar atbbreviation of 'Samn' H e knew it would be pleasing to the gentleman himself to be so styled, as an anecdote lie would re fate- would show. On the return of Gen eral Houston from a visit to his-old friend, the hero of the Hermniiage, it happened that' a friend dropped ini to see the honora tle Senator. Ott enitering his room great -was thie astonishmtent of the visiter, to and the Teitan Senator apparetlty sunk in grief andbathted-In tears. 'My dear Gen eral''exclaimed is friend, what is the mat. ter, what sorrow oppresses yomt, " hat grief distresses you so deeplyt' 'Oh !!my deer friend,' exclaimed the great Texan, sob bing and blubbering, with the deepest an guish. '1.-L-I have just, 'past return Oh "-ed from. the-O6 doss me !-the Hermitage-the residence-of my old Oh ! Oh ! 0! O! friend General Jackson; and as we parted to tyeet perhaps no more in this sinful wosld-Oh tme! my dear friend he addresed me not by the natne of~en eral or Master or even Samuel-biut, my dear friend he called me by the endearing name, by which my mother knew mne he called me Sam! Sam!! SAMr!!!' And here the hero of Sam Jacinto burst into a torrent of grief an as choke all umterance anid imnduce his friend to unite his tears with his, until the swollen torrent of their sorrowflowed strong enough to torn, a mill wheel. The adientce were convulsed with laugh ter at this story, amid no onme seemed to enjoy it mote than General. Iouston him self, who arose and begged to interrupt his elequent opponent for a moment..merely to say that be would make a child's bar gain with him-if he would never again call him by the endearing name of Sam' he would never call Colonel W., Wiggle ANECDOTE OF LORENZO DOW. Dow was Yery exact in the appointmztentv he made to preach, and sometimes arrang ed Ihem a long way ahead. He once preached nest one- of the small owns of Upper Geotfia, ar.d told his congregation on that day one year he would preach to then again.! The next season, one Saturday afternoon, preceeding the Sabbath. of the appointed lime, the old. main was jhguing along the main road in the direction of his congrega tion. 'e noticed befure him a stout little negro boy. ofpeculiar active step and man ner,. who carried in his hand a smuall lin hubii' such as are used to call people t o their meals. * The custom among many in the South slows marrihd men to go; to their Wives' houses, and children to visit their parents on Saturday evening, to stay with them on Sunday, and as lte negroes are musically intlined, they carry a fife, or a horn, or a banjo. togivig notice of their approach, and to beruile- the way. f" other cases they whisgle, sing or shout. A he3lithy, cheer ful negro or honest intentions. uses some meant of associaton, even if he is obliged to talk to hinself. Dbw, according to his usual manner, en tered into conversation tvitht the boy, and found be was about to visit the congrega lion he had appointed to meet. If the truth must be told. Lorenzo had an idea that the character or his flock was that of a reck less, frolicksome, kind of careless people, upon whour it was necessary to make a very decided impression, or his time woud lie thrown away among them. *#bat.is your name, my lad ?" asked ]!ow. "Gabriel, sir," replied the boy, lifting a dOw straw hat, and showittg his iv-iry. while he actively stepped along to- keep pace with tIle preacher's horte. "Can youblow that horn ?" "th. yen, master, I can toot a little." "Well, let me hear you." So the negro ituflted his velvet cheeks and madd the woods resound. "Do you know R gall pine tree near the stand-at Sharon?' said Dow. "Ves, that I does, very well master." Lorenzo then put his hand in his pock et, and pulling out a silver di'llar, showed it to the boy, and cold him if lie would climb up in the pine tree before the people met at the meetiug, and keep quiet there on 1WUr-peeser15t-UG nmIttrAWmc a3e then bloW loudly on his horn, as he had just done, he would give him the silver dol lar, if he did not tell any body about it.

Til9 LONATIC ASYLU.M. *We were much gratified by a visit to ibis Institution a day or i wo since. The Legislature at its last session approptiated S15,000 for the purpose of erecting two wings to the main building. that lanving been fonmd insufficient to accommadate the applican's for adiission. This ap proprintion was to include the erection of a suitalib buillding for colored panients. These a1iions are now in progress of construction, and will ere long lie coin pleted. The two new wings to the main building heing the same height antid of the same external finish as that, makes the whole a very imposing structure, and to gether with some contemplated improve ments in the grounds anod shrubbery, will render it altogether a beautiful place. The new wings are capacious, each, 40 feet in width, 45 feet leng'ii in front, nod 65 feet in the renr. furnishing inl all 90 spacious, well ventilated, and comfortable apart ments, with fire praces, &c., and all executed and furnished very tinatly. The buildings being erected for colored patients are entirely separate from the main structure in another piart of the en closure. and will be constructed with the same view to the comfort of its inmates as characterises the principal building, and will, i is. thought, be sufficiently com, modious ibr all who may he sent. Our visit to this humane Institution con vinced'us that the appropriation add to its facilities was a wise one. There aru at present 107 patients within its walls, co joying the benefits of a wholesome disci pline and medical treatment. We have no statistics before us by which to judge of its success with regard to the number ofits cures, but have not the least doubt that its records will compare favorab y with any similar Institution inl the country. Ve leann that the good order which prevails among the inmates of the tsylum is truly remarkable-and what is still more surprising that they nre nuentive and well behaved during divine services, which we learn are performed there re gularly on Sabbath afternoon by the Cha plain. the Rev. Mr. Horn. As f-ir as we can perceive, the united efforts of the Resents, officers, and the minimter who officiates, have rendered this Institution peculiarly effective in its aim and objects, antl have done much to ameliorate the sulmrrngs nturuanutywar .-On.- n within their power.

Planters that intend planting wheas should now bestir themselves. Let the planter hear in mind, that wheat, to be cuhivated successfully in any soil, or int any climate, requires clean and thorough, cuhure.-'l'he ground should be wel-bra ken and finely pulverised, and where the, soil will bear subsoiling, it should be done. There is a great hue and cry about sub soiling, much without reason or good sense.. There are light pritluctive soils in' this section, thait to subsoil would: be' their death, which- by very light plowing, and' freqient sti'rring, bear severe drought bet ter than heavier and deeper soils. Let the planter then exercise his judgment,.wighth er the soil will bear sutsoiiing, and'act aw cordingly: The ground for wheat"should' he in readiness, and the seed put in at'leasV by the middle of November. Great care should be taken to sow the seed eienly over the whole grotnd, as there is grei inequality in quality as well as qbuntity,. in an evetnly sowed field' I' saw admira,. ble machir.ery at the North for sowing wheat in drills, which is snid to answer an excellent purpose giving the field an admi-' rnble appearance andt a more abubdtan yield. But in our fields of stumps and' trees, our machinery must be the hand'df man, graduated by judgment, screwedlow with common sense, and oiled' withireason A hout one and a hair bushels of seed' will' plant an acre, but it will vary actording tb' the strength of' the land and the size of the kernels. To prevent the attacks of the uredo and smitit, the seed'should be soaked' in a strong solution of blue alone, say one' pound of blue-stone to five bushels of-seedI, Sme k fron eight to ten hours, then dry the' seed in lime; sow lime broadc ast- over'the field when the seed is put in, rrbm two' ti' five bushels to the acre. There is no'grain that so mitch abounds in- lime as wheat;: and consequently it is a great consumer of' that substance; t:erefore, a soil that hase tint lime, either. naturally or artificially willi tint produce eond' wheat. Mtuch oi the itew pine lands in this section will prodbee Gie wheat, (especially those that have not' been burned over to kill what is called the poisonous pine straw,) as pine straw conk iniuts more potash than any other leaf,. and potash is a first cousin to-lime.
