VBLI/8 FIRST C OURT. When Col Arch'd. Yell, afterwards killed at the battle of Buena Vista, had taken his seat for the first time upon the bench, the first ease upon the docket was colled and the plaintiff was ready. It was a case that had been in litigation for five years. General Smoot rose for the defendant, and remarked in an Over bearing tone: “Our witnesses are absent, and therefore I demand that the case may be continued until the next term in courst." “ Let the affidavit be filed, for not until then can I entertain a motion for a continu ance,” replied the Judge. “ Do you doubt my words as to the facts?” General Smoot exclaimed sharply, and invol untarily raising bis huge cane. *' Not at all,” replied the Judge, with bis blandest smile, “ but tbo law requires that the facts justifying a continuance must ap pear on record, and the court has no power to annul a law, nor any will to see it annulled.” The Judge's cairn and business-like tone and manner only served to irritate the bully, i anil he retorted, shaking his sword-cane in the I direction of the bench : | “ Whatever may be the law*, I, for one, will not learn it from the lips of an upstart dema gogue and a coward.” Judge Yell’s blue eyes shot lightning, but he only turned to the clerk and' coolly said : , “ Clerk, you will enter a fine of fifty dollars against General Smoot, as I see him named upon my docket for gross contempt of court, and be sure you issue an immediate execu tion.” He had just communicated the order, when General Smoot was seen rushing towards him, brandishing his sword-cane, all his features bespeaking murderous wrath. Every glance was fixed on the countenance of the Judge, for all wished to know how he would break tbo coming of the duelist’s fierce assault. But none, however, could detect the slightest change in his appearance. His cheek grew neither red nor white, nor did a nerve seem to tremble—his calm eye surveyed the advan cing foe with as little perturbation as a chemist might show scrutinizing the effervescence of some novel mixture. Ho sat perfectly still, with a little stuff of painted iron in his hand. Smoot ascended the platform and immediately aimed a tremendous blow' at the head of his foe. At that blow the hearts of all the assem bled spectators shuddered, and full a dozen voices shrieked, all expecting to see the vic tim’s skull shivered to atoms. The general as tonishment may then be conceived, when they TEK M 8 : FIVE DOLLARS PER ANNUM. IN ADVANCE. beheld the little iron staff describe a quick curve, as the great sword-cane flew from j ! General Smoot’s fingers, ami fell with a loud clatter at the distance of twenty feet in the | hall. The baffled ruffian uttered a cry of wrath, as wild as that of some wounded beast of prey, and snatched his bowie-knife from its sheath ; but ere it was poised for the desper ate plunge, the little iron staff cut another curve, and the big knife followed the sword cane. He then hastily drew' a revolving pistol but before he had time to touch the trigger, his arm was struck powerless by hissiJ**. And , then, for Hy* f, rs t time, did Judge Yell betrjjy ' perceptible emotion. He stamped his foot nn -1 til the platform shook beneath him, and shout ! ed in a trumpet tone ; : “ Mr. Clerk, you will blot out this ruffian’s | name from the roll of Attorneys foul dis grace to the bar. Mr. Sheriff, take the crimi -1 nal to jail.” The latter officer sprang to obey the man date, and Immediately a scene of confusion en j sued which no pen can describe. The bravos and niynnidom friends of General Smoot gathered around to obstruct the sheriff, while j many of the citizens lent their aid to sustain I the authority of the court. Menaces, horrid I curses and screams, the ringing of impinging and crossing steel, the alternate cries of rage i and pain, all commingled with the awful ex* I plosion of fire arms, blended together a vivid I idea of Pandemonium. But throughout all the i tempestuous struggle, two individuals might Ibe observed as leaders of the storm. The ! new* Judge used his little iron cane with terri i bio efficiency, crippling limbs, yet sparing life. Bill Buffura, imitating the clemency of his lion- I ored friend, disdained the use of either knife or pistol, actually trampled and crushed down all opposition, roaring at every furious blow; | “This is the way to preserve order in court!” ■ a sentiment which he accompanied with wild peals of laughter. In less than two minutes, • the parly of the Judge triumphed, the clique of | General Smoot suffered a disastrous defeat, 1 and the bully himself was borne away to 1 prison. Such was (he debut of Archibald Yell, in | Arkansas; and from that day bis popularity i as a man, a Judge, as a hero, and as a politi oisn, went un lapidiy increasing, till, eclipsing the oldest and most powerful names, it set on ; the bloody eve of Buena Vista. I The Aged Lover.—“ No longer a lover !” exclaimed an aged pair arch; “ah you mis take me if you think age has blotted out my heart. Though silver hairs fall over a brow all wrinkled, and a cheek all furrowed, yet I am a lover still. I love the beauty of the maiden’s blush, the soft tint of flowers, the singing of birds, and, above all, the silvery laugh of a child. I love the star like meadows where the butter cups grow, with almost the same enthusiasm ns when, with the ringlets Hying loose in tin* wind, and my cap in hand, years ago, I chased the painted butterfly. I love yon aged damo. Look at hor. Her face is care-worn, but it h*s ever held a smile for me. Often hive I shared the bitter cup of sorrow with her and so shared, it almost teemed sweet. Years of sickness have sto len the freshness of life; but, like the faded rose, the perfume of her love, is richer than when in the full bloom of youth and maturity. Together wo have placed flowers in the case ments, and folded hands of the dead ; together wept over little graves. Through sunshine and storms we have clung together; now she sits with her knitting, her cap quaintly frilled, the old style kerchief crossed, white and prim, above the heart that has beat so long and truly for me, the dim blue eye that shrinking ly fronts the glad day ; the sunlight, throwing her a parting farewell, kisses her brow, and leaves upon its faint tracery of wrinkles, an gelic radiance. I see, though no one else can, the bright, glad young face that won me first, and the glowing love of 40 years thrills my heart till the tears come. Say not again 1 can no longer be a lover. Though this form be bowed, God implanted eternal love within. Let the car be deaf, the eye blind, the hands palsied, the limbs withered, the brain clouded yet the heart, the true heart, may hold such wealth of love, that all the pow’er of death and the victorious grave shall not be able to put out quenchless flame. Fooling iiis House.—“ 1 engaged,” says a traveller, “a chaise at Galway, to conduct me some few miles into the country, and had not proceeded far when wo pulled up at the foot of a hill, and the driver coming to the door, opened it. What are }'OU at man? this isn’t where I ordered you to stop,” said I. “Whist, your honor, whit?” ejaculated Faddy, “ I’m only desaving the baste. If I bang the door he’ll think you’re out, and’ll cut i up hill like the very divil,” A gentleman, of Alabama, was lying in bed one morning, when a friend, stepping in, said, “P , breakfast is coming on.’’ “Let it come,” replied P , with a look of defiance, “ 1 am not afraid of it.” Hr The mother of the Rothschilds lived at Frankfort, and was taken sick at 98 years of age. She said she was certain to live to 100, as nothing belonging to the house of Rothschild must go below par. She did, however, for she died at 09^. From the Sucriunento Union. I.atrr from Cnreon Valley »«<1 *•»«* P , * ,nl, Placeuvu-lk, Aug. 80—8 r. u. By the arrival of several emigrant trains ! just in, wo have later and important news from the Plains. The names of those arrived are J. W. Borland, wife and family, Wm. King, , wife and family, George Berry, Mrs. Moore and two sons, Richard Choud, Ira Burget, R. ' Dieper, W. Adams, C. Darin, W. Risking, A. Taswell, D. Bowling, J. B. Mather, A. Lyons, Win. Hughes, J. T. Wright, Albert Lawson, Andrew Lawson, J. T. Burnett and son. Mr. Burnett brings the intelligence of the massacre of a whole train, consisting of six men and three children. One woman was shot through and scalped, and left for dead, but was found still alive by those who came up first She is not expected to live. She is being brought into Carton Valley by Round- I tree's train. The stock was also recovered from the In : dians, in doing which only one Indian was killed. The stock is in charge of Roundtree’s train—lso head. only names my informant recollects among the killed were those of Ilalloway and his brother-in-law. The three children were murdered by those fiends before the face of 1 their parents, and horribly mutilated. The emigrants to a man, are willing to join a company to exterminate the fiends. Ihey are all of the opinion that it will yet be six weeks before the emigrants all pass that local ity, ami begin to express their indignation that no move is being or has been made to organ ize a force here, it being only three hundred miles beyond Genoa. Nine tenths of the emigrants would volun teer, that are daily arriving in Carson Valley. Three men had been murdered at Gravelly Ford since our last accounts. Their names were John Everhart, John Steen and John Lawhoy. Everhart had been traveling with Mr. Bennett’s train, but left to pack in with another company. The second day after leaving, some Sho- Swawnoe Indians wanted to trade a pony for a rifle. Ever hart handed the gun to one of the Indians, who immediately shot Steen with it. He ab**, *.-ing aiiucu, iney rode oti a short distance and shot Everhart and Lawboy. The other present succeeded in making his escape. This murder took place at the head of the canon beyond Gravelly Ford. Burgett and Dicker found what was sup posed to he the body of Brown, one of the three traders heretofore reported killed. His scalp was torn from his head, and he was shot through the loft arm, and the hall probably touched his heart. Their names were Brown and Jones. One of the Jones’ lived in Car son Valley, where his father now owns a ranch. They found this body two days after Buster’s men. One of Buster’s men told one of the above that they drank $7 worth of whisky at the post before they went in search of the Indians. Suspicion rests upon certain parties in reference to the accidental shooting of one of Buster’s men, as before reported.— After they had shot the Indian, ho remarked to one emigrant, who is now near this city, that he had a presentiment that he was to be foully dealt with before reaching Carson Val ley. My informant says hardly any questions were asked in reference to the accidental shot by which the man was killed ; but few regrets were expressed by the one who fired the fatal shot. Time will have to remove the mystery as to the cause of the murder of the traders. There have also arrived here twelve men from Kirk's party. They left the train on the Humbolt, at which place sixteen of his men left. They are of the opinion that it will be almost Impossible for the emigration to travel the Honey Lake route, on account of the scar city of both feed and water. They were three days crossing one desert, without a spear of grass for their stock. Kirk has lost the best of his stock from the Alkali, and they were still giving out.— Kirk would still push ahead. A Persevering Lover. — A young lady, possessed of beauty, accomplishments, and having $45,000 in hard cash on deposit in St. Louis, started recently on a trip to New York in company with her aunt. She took passage on the steamer Tennessee Belle from Keokuk to Cincinnati. On the same boat was a young man who had plenty of every thing but money ; he had importuned her at home, and. had kept up his ardent courtship on board the boat— The lady, however, was hard-hearted, and re fused to give him the least hope. The boat stopped awhile at Carrollton, Ky., and thels.dy and her aunt concluded to take a stroll on shore; as she was going down the gangway plank it tilted, and the lady fell into the water. She was drawn by the current under tho wharf boat The suitor jumped in, went un der the boat after her, succeeded in catching her, and finally rescued her. In two hours she was perfectly restored, and sending for her deliverer, and a clergyman being on board, they were married forthwith. lar Mrs. Snipkins being unwell, sent*for a medical man, and declared that she was poison ed, and that Mr. Snipkins did it. “ I didn’t d it,” shouted Snipkins; " It's all gammon ; she isn’t poisoned. Prove it, doctor, open her on the spot—l am willing ” NO. 23.
