A TALE OF JOHN TAYLOR. jfiiiM Tti.or was licensed, when a youth of, twenty one to practice at the bar of this city. .lie was poor nut wen euiienie.i auj possessed extraordinary genius, lire graces 4ifhia person, combined with the superiority ff his intellect, enabled him to win the hand of a .fashionable beauty. Twelve months af terwards the husband was employed by wealthy firm of the city lo go on a mijsion as land agent to the West. , As a heavy salary m i t ii . i : ...:r was i.nereu, l ayior unue larewcu iu ins wic and infant son. He wrote hack every week liut received not a line in answer. Six mouths elapsed, when he received a letlerfrom his employer that explained all. Shortly after his departure for the West, the wife and her father removed to Mississippi. There she im mediately obtained a divorce by an net of the Legislature, mnrried again forthwith, and to complete the climax of cruelty and wromr, had the name of Taylor's son changed lo Marks, that of her second matrimonial partner. This perfidy nearly drove Taylor insane. His cn reer from that period became eccentric in the first degree. At last a fever carriad him off at t comparatively early age. I ' At an early hour on the 9th of April, 1340, the Court House in Clarksville, Texas, was crowded to overflowing. Save in the war times past, there had never been witnessed such a gathering in Red Kiver County, while the strong feeling apparent on every flushed face will sufficiently explain the maltef. . "At thcclose of 1839. Oeorge Hopkins, one of the wealthiest planters and most influential liien of Northern Texas, offered a gross insult to Mary Elliston, ihe young and beautiful wife of his chief overseer. The husband threaten ed to ohas'tise him for the outrage, whereupon Hopkins loadrd his gun,' went to Kllistnn's house, and shot hmi in his own door. The murdeier was arrested, and bailed to answer the charge. This occurrence produced intense excitement, and Hopkins, in order to turn the fide of popular opinion, or at least to mitigate the general wrath which at first was violent against him, circulated reporls infamously prejudicial to the character of the woman who had suffered siioh wrongs ut his hands. SKe bronghther suit for slander. And thus, two cases, one criminal and th other civil, and vboth ot of the same tradegy, were pending in the April Circuit Court for 1S40. . The interest naturally fell by Ihe community no to the issues, liecamo far deeper when wa known that Ashley and Pike! of Arkansas, and the celeb aled S. S. Prentice, of New Or leans, each with enormous fees, had been re tained by Hopkins for his defence. Tbe trial for the indictment of murder ended on the Bin of April with the acquittal of Hop kins. " Such, a result might well have been foreseen, by comparing the talents of the counsel engaged on either side. The Texas lawyers were utterly overwhelmed 'by the ar elimentsandeloouenceoftheir opponents. was.a fieht of a dwarf airsinst giants. The slander suit was set for the 9th, and the throng olsnecfalors grew in number as well as excitement ; and what mav seem strange, the current of public sentiment now ran decided lyfor Hopkins. ;. Hia mo ey had purchased pointed witnesses, who served most eflicien'ly his powerful advocates. Indeed, so trium phant had been the success of the previous day, that when the s'nndercaje was called, nary Elliston was left without an nUcney-they had all withdrawn. The pigmy pettifoggers dared not brave against the wit ot 1'iKv, ami the scathing thnnder of Prentice. "Have, you no counsel?" inquired Judge 'Mills', looking kindly a' Ihe plaintiff. "No, air, they have all deserted me, and a in too poor to employ nnv more," replied Ihe beautiful Mary, bnrsliug into tears. "In such a case will not some chivalrous member of Iht profession volunteer?" Thethirly lawyersweresilent as death. Judge Mills re -eated the question. ' ."I will 'our honor, said a voice from the thickest pjrt of the crowd, situated behind the bor. - ; At the tone of" Hist voice many s'arlled half from their aeals j and perhaps there, was not a heart in that immense throng which did noj, heat something quirker, It was so nn fa,rhly, sweet, clear, ringing and mournful.

His appearance was a problem Tumte sphinx himself.'

Then a shadow might have been observed lo flit across the features of fike, and to darken even the bright eyes of Prentice. They saw thai they had "caught a 'I'anar ; uiij. who u was, or how it happened, was impossible to guess. Colonel Ashley spoke first. He dealt the jury a dish of that close, dry logic, which years at.erwarus renueieu nun iniiiuus in me ai'iiuu; of the Umoii. Thr poet, Albert Pike, followed with a rich vein of wit; and a hail torrent of ridicule, in which you may be sure neiihtr the plaintifl nor the plainlilrs ragged attorney were cither forgotten or spared. The great 1'reohoe- conclm'eirfor the de fendant, with a glow of gorgeous words, bril liant as a shower ol railing slurs, and with final burst of oratory-that I'routht the house down in cheers, in which the sworn jury them selves joined, notwithstanding the stern "or der" ol the bench. Thus woiiderfullysiisrep- ticle are the southwestern people to the chunns of impassioned eloquence. ' It wiis then the stranger s turn. He find re mained apparency abstracted during all Ii.'.' previous speeches. Still, and straight, and motionless in his rent, his p le mi:outh fore head shooting up high like a mountain core of snow, hut lor that eternal twitch that canle and went perpetually in his sallow checks, you would have taken him lor a mere man of mar ble, or human m;.n carved in ice. Even dim dreamy eyes, were invisible beneath those i;ray shaggy eyebrows. But now, at Inst, he rises before the railing, not behind and so near to the won dering jury that ho might tonrh the foreman wiih his long, bony finger. With liis eyes still tinir shut, and standing rigid as a pillnrof iron, his Ihln lips curl as if in measureless scorn, itliL'htlv part, and the voice comes forth. .first it is low and sweet, insinuating itself kb.'roui;h the bram as nn artless lune, winding its way into the deepest heart like the melotly of a magic incantation; while the speaker pro ceeds without a gesture fir at least n sijn excitement to tear in pieces Ihe argument Ashley, that mells away, at Ins touch as linst before the sunbeams. Everyone looke(.sur prised. His logic was at once so brief, ths rudest peasant could comprehend it with out effort. Anon he came to the dazzling wit of the fct lawyer, Pika. Then the the curl of his grew sharper; his sallow face kindled up; iiis eyes began to open, dim and dreary no long er, but vivid ns lightning, ted as fire-globes, ahd eloring like twin meteors. The whole soul was in his eye the full heart beamed his face. In five minutes Tike's wit seemed the foam of folly, and his finest aatire, horn ble'lfrnfnnity, when contraaUd with Hie tnifn itable sallies and exlerrhinalingsarcasmsof stranger, interspersed with jest and anecdote that filled the forum with roars ol ir.ugliter. Then, without so much as bestowing an lusion lo Prentice, he turned short on the jured witnesses of Hopkins, tore their testi mony into atoms, ami hurled in their such terrible invective that nil trembled with an ague, nnd two of them actually dismayed from the court-house. The exoitement of the crowd was becoming tremendous. The united liTe and soul appear ed to han on the burning tongue of the stran ger. He inspired them with ;ne powersoi own nations. He ssturated them with poison of his own malicious recltngs. seemed to have stolen nature s ions nit'ucn secret aT.irtiou. He was Ihe sun t- the of all thought and emotion which rose and ann boiled hi billows as he chose. 15ut rrealest triumph was to come. Ills eyes began to glare luniveiy at pssassin Hopkins, and his lean, taper fingers slowly assumeu me same inreciion. ne the wretch with a cirrumvallationof evidence and impregnable argument, cutting off all hope of escape. He piled up bastions of insurmountable facts. He dug beneath the murderer and slanderer's feet ditches of dilewns; such as no sophistry could overleap, and no stretch of ingenuity evade; and hef ing thus, ns one might say, his victim, and girt him about like scorpion in a circle of fire, he stripped himself to the work the massacre. Oh! Ihen. but it wns a vision both glorious and dreadful to behold the oratir. His ns before graceful as Ihe wave of a golden willow to the breeze, grew impetuous as motipn of an oak in Ihe hurricane-, iiis became a trumpet filled with wild whirlpools, deafening the ers with crashes of power, Vet iutermiiiL'h-d all thv while with a under song of the toflest cadence.

A poor ine briated wretch in the afternoon .had ieen taken to the calaboose. His conduct ia tie street, and after he was placed in the cell, waa of such a' violent character that rt bectjme nec essary to hsndf.ulT him. The demon of rum had possession of his soul, and be gave vent to his r.iviugs in curses so profane aa to shock the sences of his fellow piisonvrs, one of whom, In the same cell, at hi own solicitation wn placed in a seperate apartment.' A wo mah' appeared at the grating, and in her hands she had a rude tray, upon which was)placed some slrces of b ead, ' fresh from the hearth stone, and other little delicacies for her erriug husband. She stood ntlhebargazingintensely in Die thick gioom where her manacltd com panion wildly raved. ' Her voice waa low and soft, and as she called his name, its titterance was as plaintive as the melody of a fond and crushed spirit.' , ' ... ; The tears strr-amed from her eys, and (here, in the dark prison house, an abode of the most wretched and depraved, the tones of her. voice found their way into that man a heart, anc lie ; knelt in sorrow nnd in silence before his young and injured wife, while hia heart found reli.f in tears such oulv ns a man can weep. Though the iion still bound his wrists, be placed his hands with their heavy insignia of degradation, confidingly and affectionately upon the brow of his fair companion, and exclaimed, 'Knly, I will be a better mau." There upon a ru.le seat, she had spread the- humble meal which she had prepared with her own hand, and after he had fir.ished, bidding him to be j calm and resigned for her sake, with the as- siir.mee that she would bring a friend to go on his bond, nnd that she would return and take j him home. Ami Khe left him a strong man, with hishea' drooping upon his breast, a very coward humiliated before the weak and ten der beiiii', whose very presence had stilled the angry passions of his soul. True to the instincts of her 't.ve and promise, she did re turn with one who went on his bond for hia appearance next morning, nnd vith his hand clasped in flint or his loving wire, she led him away a penitent, and we trust, a better man. There were those who lauglied, as that pale, meek woman bore off'her erring husband, but she heeded Ihem not, and her self sacrificing herfrt knew or enred for nothing in its holy and luavan-hnrn instincts, but lo preserve and protect him whom she loved with all the devotion of a wife and n woman. Ex.. A Scene from Real Life—Woman's Love. "He's Nothing but a Farmer." to U. U. U. U. to loll Said a little Miss a few evenings since, in a ball-room, ns she scomfiiliy curkrd her pretty lip, on being introduced to a fme, generoua, pen -hearted youn fellow, whose broad and expancive forehead was the- symbol of his brond acres. "He's nothing but a farmer." And wh i w s she that looked thus disdainfully nn one of God's noblemen? she Was the daughter or a broken merchant, whose fortune had been mined by the exffcavagenre of a wife, and a proud daughter. Though her father's heait had been by misfortune and he paid the penally of txtravagence by incarceration in the home prepared for criminals his daughter had not yet learnt the- difference between pride nnd worth, extravganceand wealth. The noblenmn who eat the bread of industry, and looked every man in the face, with an inde pendence which said "1 owe you nothing," was in her estimation only "a farmer!" Did those upstart fools, who are character ize! as codfish aristocracy having more smell than substance ever reed, even I heir bibles, I hey would find thnt God himself hasselected his prophets, and kings from among farmers. Noah wns a husbandman, nnd planted a vine vnrd Abraham was rich iu cattle, and Lot had flocks nnd herds insomuch that there was pasture enough for both, an I they divided the c iiinlry, Lot selecting the plains ol Jor dan, and Abraham taking tbe hilly country of Canaan. Jacob was a great caltl grower, as he pre sented F.au with fivo hundred head of "cattle. Moses was a wool-grower and Gideon was taken from his threshing-floor Saul was a he.-iisin.iii, even while he was king. David was a ilieperd, and was taken from that occu pation to be king, nnd the nuctster ncording t the flesh of the Messiah Ur.ziah was a cattle-grower, Klii hit was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen (pi.iba.bly breaking up prairies, or I'.trningsodsoil) Elijah cast his mantle on Ii4m, a prophet. And yet, t lough God had honored the hus bandmanselected his kings and prophet fiom among the farmers, and even carried on agriculture on a small scale, (having "pjan led a garibm eastward of Eden" ) Ihe' fry, codfish nristooraov, turn up their noses, that ia never wiped with "a paid for handkerchief' and cry out "Oh, he is nothing but a farmer!"
