A GREAT SPEECH. # Hooper, of the Montgomery Mail, gives the following report of the greatest speech he ever heard : A fellow was indicted up iu the old Ninth, when Tom G-1 was Solicitor, lor gam bling, to wit: Playing “short cards," at a certain locality known as Frog Level. Col. N-defended him and contended before the jury, that though the State's evidence “tended” to show that his client, with a bot tle of liquor in his pocket, accompanied the crowd who, it was shown, did actually play, vet it never did with absolute certain y, lo cate him as one of the players. Said he, by way of peroration: ’ ' “Gentlemen of the Jury; the witness have • told you that Peter Wyatt wa9 thar, and a playing': for ho noticed*his hand, and it was a Jull on Queens ! “Harry Snow was thar, and he was a-play* in'; for he hilt two little par! “William Upsou was thar, and he playod, 'cause w itness noticed, in particular, that he had nothin’ but an ace ! “Rill Connor was thar, and Ac played, gen tlemen, for he had the bully hand—four high heeled Jacks ! ■ ••//#«/, gentlemen, when I come to ask him about Abraham Pitkin—my client’s hand, w hat did he say, gentlemen ? Why, nothin’, gentlemen, except that if Al>e hilt any hand, he disremembered what w'as in it. Anfl now, gentlemen of the jury, because my cli ent whs seen goin' down to Frog Level, with a bottle ot liquor in his pocket, and tlve wit ness can't remember as he hilt any hand at all, when bully hands was out, and him the best player in the crowd—is that—ts that— I sav, gentlemen of the jury, is that any rea son that my client was guilty of the crime of Gumbo liny It is utmost needless to say that the jury saw* the non sequitur and acquitted the de fendant. _ REPROOF SHORTENED. Jarvis, & painter, was one day employed in painting a portrait of Bishop -, and during the progress of the sitting, the vener able prelate began to remonstrate with him at the dissipated course of life into which he had fallen. Jarvis made no reply; but drop ping his pencil from the forehead ot the por trait to the lower part of the face, he said, with slight motion to the reverend sitter, “Just shut your mouth, my lord.*' By paint ing upon that feature, he “changed the sub ject" in two senses.
