If tha f toriM of ioctdoota and adventures
currant in any of th numerous camp, in the
neighborhood of Secesbdom could be collec
ted In book form they would make a Ttry
readable work. I may tend you a string ol
uch ai an afloat in our region, at tome fu
tort time, at present I wilt relate one that
came to ay knowledge a few day sitice.
Squire Bailj had the biggest, and beet, and
most docile mules in Martin's Bottom, and
Merlin's Bottom is- about the biggest and
best neighborhood on Qreenbriar river.
Squire Baily was inclined to be a Union
man, and did not entirely conceal his senti
ments, notwithstanding the presence 0
Floyd's army in the vicinity. About tbe
time ot "Fhyd'e "tumultuous flight" from
that region, ha was very much in need of;
transportation, and, according to established I
assges among secesh, he proceeded to levy
on the teams of the farmer. Ol course, a
Union man, like Squire Bailey, was not to
escape; but Squire Bailey, taking time by
tbe forelock, very quiotly one night, removed
to a safe locality, all his live stock except bis
fevorite mule, which he kept for hauling
wood and going to mill. This mule being !
apparently the only support of a large and
increasing family, Squire Bailey fondly belie
ved the Secesh would not be heartless enough
to rob him of it.
But Squire Bailey did not understand Se
cesh. One floe morning along came Quar
termaster BliSe, accompanied by half a doz
en armed mea from Floyd's amy. Squire
Bailey was standing at his gale when Quar
termaster Blifle approached and commenced
conversation with him.
"Good morning, Mr. a Mr. ."
"Bailey," suggested tha Squire. -
"Yos, Bailey; good morning, Mr. Bailey."
"Morning," said tbe Squire.
"1 understand, Mr. Bailey, that you have
a number of horses and mules which you
wish to dispose of to our glorious Coafeder
acy." .
"Mistake, sir," said Bailey, "I have none
to sell to anybody."
"But, Mr. Bailoy, some gentleman inform
ed ma yesterday that you had quite a num
ber of horses snd mules."
. "If you'll believe your own eyes, instead
of some gentleman Mr. Quartermaster, you
can see lor yourself that I have no'hin' but
that mule in the log pen there, and that I
can't keep house without."
"Ab, I see the mule!" said Blifle, looking
through the cracks. "You'd be asking fifty
dollars for that mule, I s'pose. Well, its a
big price, but if you wont take less I'll have
to give it. Corporal, just write a note for
fifty dollars, payable in Florida Swamp
lands, at twenty -fire dollars an acre two
years after our glorious Confederacy achieves
undisputed independence."
"But, Mr. Blifle," remonstrated the Squire
"if you take my mule, my family will freeze
to death, and Btarve to death, too, a'ore
spring. And if I had twenty miles I could
not sell you such as that for less than three
hundred in gold, but this one I can't spare
at no price." , ,,
4 ""We mult all make sasrifijes, Mr. Bailey,
lor our glorious Confederacy. If you only
knew the sacrifices I have mi l?. Mr. TWiW.
The starving and freezing of your wife and
family ire nothing compared to them; but
our glorious Confederacy called, and my pa
triotism responded to the call. Future gen
erations will remember and bless us, Mr.
Bailey, and we will receive the everlasting
gratitude of our glorious Confederacy. Think
of that, Mr. Bailoy think of that."
Mr. Blifle, before his appointment, had
been utterly penniless, and ten times as mean
as he was poor. These qualifications got
bim the appointment of quartermaster; out
of this office be was stealing a fortune.
"Mr. Blifie," said the Squire, with much
feeling, "for the Lord's sake don't take my
last airthly support. Don't you Bee my
children are all cry in and carryin' on.be
cause they know they'll all be in their graves
afore Spring, if you rob me of "
- "Bob!"' exclaimed Mr. Blifie fiercely.
"Don't say rob again, or I'll massacre your
whole nest of traitors. It'a because you're
an enemy to our glorious Confederacy that
you are unwilling to sell the mule at a fair
price, I ought'nt to pay you a cent, but I'm
a generous man, and you ought to be thank
ful to me. Corporal, fill up the note as I
"Hold oa a mtmt," said the Squire. "If
'that paper ia what you are goin to give me,
dont spile it by writin on it. The blank pa
per might be of a little use to me, but the
writin on it never could."
"You're a cursed traitor to our glorious
Confederacy," said Blifie, and he started to
take the mule oat of the pen. It was-hitch-
ed with a halter and had a broad circingle
around it. lie unfastened it, and, without
deigning another word to the "enemy of bis
glorious Confederacy," he was off with it to
leek another farmer's stable.
( ( Squire Bailey looked sad as he turned to
go to the bouse, and, in the bitterness of his
feelings, so far forgot himself as to d- a
"the glorious Confederacy."
ft "Snugly concealed in Squire Bailey's closet
' was -Jack ' Phillips the up-to everything
Ohio scout. As the Squire entered the room
he called out: "Com out Jack, they've gone,
and the infernal scoundrels have stolen my
'niole."'' ' ' y " v,-: '
"I told you they would," said Jack, ma
rking his appearance,, "and if I hadn't in for m-
ed yott last night, they'd a got all the rest of
'm that you sent off." . , ;
' -That's so Jsck; bat I'd give a hundred
.dollars to have that mole b-ck." :
Jack looked steadily at the fire for five
minutes. jt4',t.,: -n-u-i xt it !. .
" "What did yoa say, Bqaire?" ; ' ; ;
.X"I said I'd give a hundred dollars to get
that mule back, but I'spose three : hundred
wouldn't get him";! 'UlTfQl
n ,"l don't know," said Jack abstractedly,
And he looked in th fire for -five minutes
more; Suddenly1' Jack tautened up. and
"Give me the hundred duilarr, Squire, at.d
'"111 bring yott your mule to morrow .'.night or
your money shall be returned."
", The Squire looked amazed at- Jack for a
moment, but seeing he was in earnest?, put
r five double eagles in hi iand., , in, a few
1 minute Jark left th boused dreawd in lia .
Uy pants, wums and a coon -skin cap;
X I Hext day, ai Jack was walking leisurely
up the road, by a coincidence, probably
brought about by himself, he met tbe qnar-
tennaster nd hia men, returning with tht
proceeds of the expedition Jack smiled a
happy smile when he saw BUfle behind the
rest, leading the Squire's mule. 1I walked
quietly along nntil he cams opposite the
quartermaster, when he darted suddenly off
to the side of the road, looking at the mule
as if frightened.
"Blasted scoundrel!'' exclaimed Jack.
-Who? Who is a blasted scoundrel'
asked the quartermaster.
"Ain't that the mule old Bailey had?"
asked Jack, moving stil further out of bis
"Yes, but who did you say was a blasted
scoundrel?" inquired the quartermaster, very
naturally taking all such compliments to
"Wby, old BaiUy and the mule, too, for
that matter," replied Jack.
What's tbe matter with the mule?" ask-
el Blifle, whose former occupation had not
made him much of a judge of live stock.
-xne maiten wny, ne'll Ktit you a'ore
you get him home. You didn't pay the
old sinner anything foi him did you?" in
quired Jack.
"Certainly; I paid two hundred and fify
dollars for him." This is what the sacrifi-
cing patriot intended to return him at to the
glorious Coafederacy. '
"Lord a mercy!" ex:latmed Jack
"But what's the matter with him?" asked
Blifle, looking at the animal half frightened.
"That ere mule," replied Jack, "has kick
ed down, in bis time, every panel of fence on
old Bailey's place! You found him in a
pen of big logs, didn't yon?
"Yes; why?" inquired Blifla.
"And them ere logs are fastened with big
iron bolts. It's the only thing that would
ever him. He has killed all the rest of old
Bailey's stock and-the old rascal has kept
him on purpose to swindle some fellow with."
"I heard," said Blifle, "Ait he. used to
have more stock."
"That's what become of it," said Jack.
"Didn't the children cry and didn't old Bai
ler whine and carry on about losing bis tbree
hundred dollar mule?"
"Ves, they did, at a grest rate."
"I knowd'd it," said Jack. "The old wo
man spanked them children, and sent them
out at the nick of time to help the old ras
cal in his swindle. And to cheat our glori
ous Confederacy in that manner! He ought
to be hung!" and Jack winked his off eye.
"But if he's so vicious," giid Blifle, hope
fully, "how did they get tbe halter and cir
single upon him?"
"Chloroform, sir, chloroform. I've actu
ally seen that mnle kick his collar off."
"And did they give him chlorororm to get
the collar on him?" asked Blifle.
"No!" replied Jack. "They put some oati
in the bottom of a barrel, and laid the collar
across tbe top; the mule ran his head through
the collar to get of the oats."
'The devil!" ejaculated the quartermaster.
"Yes, continued Jack, "and I seed him
him kick that collar off. Ever since that
he kicks every barrel to staves that he gets
his eyes on."
"But he has seamed qniet enough since I
bavo been leading him," interposed Bli fie.
"Have you any liquor about you?" asked
"Yes, a little in my coat pocket; why do
you ask?'
"That's what he toilers you for, and it's a
wonder he hain't eat you up body and breech
es afore this, to get the liquor. I know'd
that mule to kick the lock off old Bailey's
cellar door, and go down thar and git as
drunk as a beast. Fact, sir. . That mule
can kick your hat off, and you on his baok.,
"That can't be so," said the quartermaster
"Try him," said Jack. "I've jist got a
cool hundred dollars to give you if you'll ride
him a rod."
By this time the quartermaster's attend
ants had got out of sight, and his avaricious
soul prompted bim to make an effort to get
Jack's gold, thinking be cou'dn't be more
than thrown off any how.
The night belore this meeting Jack had
qnietly stolen into the mule's stable and
carefully placed a leather dog-collar, driven
full of pointed sparrow-bills, under the
mules cirsingle, putting a piece of light leath.
er between the points of the nails and the
mule's back 'so that a moderate pressure
would force them through into the animal's
Ignorant of this, the greedy quartermaster
moved the mule to the bank and sprang on
him just where the dog-oollar was placed
J ust as be lit on mule, a boulder lit on bis
head, and he lit in tbe mud. The mule,
frantio with the pain of the nails still stick
ng in his back, sprang off the side of the
road, knocked down a dozen pannels of fence,
and ran furiously across the field, rearing
kicking, lying down and rolling over, jump
ing up, and plunging about at a terrible
rate. .
"I told you so," said Jack, coolly, as the
quartermaster scrambled ; up, rubbing his
bruised head, and brushing-at the 'mud on
his besmeared clothes. ' ' . J 1
"He's worse than seven devils, ain't he?"
said the discomfitted quartermaster.
, ,"In course he is," repjfed Jack-
" Wbat'll yon give me for tha chance of
him?" asked the quartermaster, as be saw
another string of fenoe go down before the
maddened mule, , "
"Don't know," said Jack, "the halter
might be worth a dollar or so, if I could get
close enough to shoot bim before he tears it
all to short strings." t ,,'.,..'
'But whero's my horse?" asked the qnar
tennaster, looking around ia astonishment.
wif'Don't know,'! replied Jack f "the mule
gave bim a byste with his beela just as he
started, and I haven't see d the boss since."
"S"I wish the devil had old -" ' ' .
' '"Hello, quartermaster," shouted a man in
Secesh uniform, who was coming up tbe road
at the top of hia speed; "hello, Mr. Quarter
master, the enemy is coming right down en
camp and general wants you immediately.
Our army is running like all possessed, and
the general wants you to help save the plun
der. Hurry back as hard as you can run or
the enemy will be betwixt you and our fel
lerS." i C " ' " " ;
" Blifle waited to hear no more, but broke
for his camp like a quarter horte When he
arrived, and found that the story was all false,
terrible was the vengeance he vowed but
before he had time to execute his threats,
Floyd's army was in a remote part of the
State. .' : ' " '' -.' ' v:' ' ,
" It is hardly necessary to add, that the
measengar who sent the anarter-tnaster off
to fmclpiUblj wu aa associate of Jack's;
and that Jack had turned the quartern! ti
ter's horn with his head op the road, and by
a sharp cut with a whip sent hia off out ol
sight before Uuflt recovered from bis confu
Squirt Bailey got his mule again, little the
worse for Jack's tricks, and he is as quiet
and useful an animal as there is in all the
country. : , ,
The double esg'es Jack returned with the
mule taking the quartermaster's horso as
compensation for his servicer.
Jack Phillips says he would like to have
an opportunity of inquiring of the self-sacri
ficing patriot of the glorious Confederacy,
whother it hurt much when the mule kicked
hia hat off. Tl'illn'' Spirit of the 7imu.

A Philosophic iiikey.
A correspondent of the Cincinnati Guzelte
writing from the Cumberland river, gives the
toilowihg humorous account of a colloquy
with a philosophic darkey:
I noticed upon the hurricane deck to-day
an elderley darkey with a very philosophical
and retrospective cast of countenance, squat
ted upon his bundle toasting his shins aeainst
the chimney, and apparently plunged into a
state of profound meditation. Finding upon
inquiry that he belonged to the Ninth Illi
nois, one of the most gallantly behaved and
heavy losing regiments at Fort Oonelson bat
tle, and part of which was aboard, I began
to interrogate him upon the subject. His
philosophy was so much in the r alstaman
vein that I will give his views in his own
words as near as my memory serves me:
"Were you in the fight?"
"Had a little taste of it, sa." - , .
"Stood your ground did you?"
"Xo, sa, I runs." ' " T
"Run at the first fire, did you."
"Yes sa, and would hab run soona, had
I knowd it was comin."
"Why, that wasn't very creditable to your
"Dat isn't in my line, sa cookn's my per
feshun." "Well, but have you no regard for your
"Reputation's nuffin to me by de side ob
"Do you consider your life worth more
than other people's?"
"It's worth more to me, sa."
"Then you must value it very highly?"
"Yes, sa, I does more than all dis wuld
more dan a million ob dollars, sa, for what
would dat be wuth to a man wid de bref out
of him? Self preserbashuin am de fust law
wid me."
"But why should you act upon a different
rule from other men?"
"Because different men set different values
upon dar lives mine is not in de market."
"But if you lost it, you would have the
satisfaction of knowing that you died for
your country."
"What satisfaction would dat be to me
when do power ol leelin' was gone."
"Then patriotism and bonorare nothing to
"Nuffln whatever, sa I regard dem as
among de vanities."
"If our soldiers were like you, traitors
might have broken up the Government with
out resistance."
"Yes, sa, dar would hab been no help for
it. I wouldn't put my life in de scale 'ginst
any Gobcrnment dat eber existed, for ne
Gobernment could replace de loss to me."
"Do jou think any of your company wo'd
have missed you if you had you been killed?' '
"May be not, sa a dead white man ain't
much to dese sogers, lot alone a dead nigga
but I'd missed myself, and dat was de piut
will me."
It is safe to say that tha dusky corpse of
that African will never darken the field . of
, . A Short Clergyman.
A few miles below Pourghkeepsie. IT. Y.,
there now lives, and has lived for several
years past a worthy clergyman, a man how
ever, very short in stature. Upon a certain
Sunday, abeut eight years ago, this clergy
man was invited by a pastor ol a church in
that village lo fill his pulpit for the day.
The invitation was accented, and Sundav
morning saw Mr in the pulpit.
Now it happened that the pulpit was a high
one, and accordingly hid the poor little cler
gyman from view. However, the congrega
tion, out.of respect managed to keep their
countenances and with over pious faces seem
ed religiously anxious for the text. They
were not obliged to wait very long for a noso
and two little eyes suddenly appeared over
the top of the pulpit, and a squeaking tremu
lous voice proclaimed in nasal tones the text.
" Be of good cheer, it ia I b not afraid."
A general roar of laughter followed the an
nouncement the clergyman became confu
sed, and turned all aorts ol colors. Many,
in the general uproar, left the church; -and it
was a long time before the minister could
proceed with the sermon so abruptly broken
Afternoon came and the little man, stand
ing on a footstool had a fair view of his au
dience. The text was anounced in due form:
"A little while ye shall see me, and again
a little while, ye shall not see me."
In the course of the sermon, he repeated
his text with great earnestness, and stepping
back lost his elevated footing.and disappeared
from his hearers! The effect may be more
readily imagined than desoiibed.
Since the Connecticut election, the Hart
ford Press throws off its mask, and it is out
against "the restoration of the Union as it
was," because it fear? that in such a Union
"a Republican President Cannot be elected."
Government officers are engaged in run
ning negroes from Western Virginia into
Ohio. If they are to come north, thero
is no place that should take .more of them
thon the Western Reserve. They ought to
have tbe luxury to their heart's content. ;
