I was going up the Mississippi in 1848, Judge Underwood, of Kentucky, and Henry Clny being on board. ' "That's a rough crew from Natchez," remarked the clerk, who came upon deck as we were about going below. "They play hard and high." " Let's go anil look on for awhile," said the Judge. We went down in tho saloon, where we found two parties at play. At one of the tables sat four men, about whom were gathered a large number of lookers-on; and as there proved to be tha heavy players, we joined the spectators. The game was " twenty-deck poker," and money was changing hands with start ling rapidity. One of tho players, a middle-aged man, whose face showed plainly the ravages of an excess that was sapping his life, and who, I after ward learned, was a cotton planter, had staked bis lust dollar and " called 1 his opponent's hand. He held four queens, against which were laid down four kings. And he was "broke." He started to his feet as if to leave the table. "Are ye deud broke, Colonel?" asked he of the four kings. " Yes, to the last picayune." " Oive me your note, and I'll lend ye." "No," replied the planter, with an oath. " I can do better than that Where's Wackman?" " Here," answered a dark-visaged man. " Bring the girl and boy here that I houzht at Natchez. Hold on the game just one minute, gentlemen, and I'll make a raise. The man shortly returned accompa nied by the girl and boy. Said " girl " proved to be a bright mulatto woman of live and thirty, or thereabouts; and the " boy " was her son. The boy was not far from ten years of ag, kvilh'a face lighter in color than his mother s; bis foattires really handsome. "Look here, pntlemcn, spoke the planter, rising; here's at likely a pair, for a girl and her brat, as you can scare up. 1 paid eight hundred dollars for 'em. ho'll give siit?" "Why not put 'em up separate?" asked on. " 'Twon't do to sell 'em separate. The gul ba nworn to kill herself if her boy is" sold away from her, and her old master says she'll be sura to keep her word. But, don't ye see? tha wonn is worth more'n I sk for the pair. Sow what d yeay? Who'll take era at six hun dred?'' The owner waited a few moments without receiving an answer, and then said : " I must have the money; o here goe for a rallle. Twenty dollars a throw, and thirty chances for the pair. Come, gentlemen; them that buys first throws first." Here was excitement as well as chance for proht. The players took two chances each. Then the spectators surged up, and twenty chances were sold as quick as the planter could take Ihe money and write down the names. litem me a lull. The planter took two chances, irhfreupon his two companions took each one antra. The three men in the crowd " doubled up." " Two more chances, gentlemen. Clay whispered apart to the Judge, and then mad his way to the table, and threw down two gold eagles. " What name?' "Give it to the woman." "Khl The gal herself?" " Yes. (iive her a cbnc." M All right. One chance for Ninette." Before the planter could call again Jndge CnderwoKjd had placed twenty dollars on the table, saying, a be did so " This is for the boy." " OooJ!" cried the owner of the prop erty. Here s a chance for Tommr. And that takes the lot. Where's the clerk?' " Here." " Have you got blanks for this sort of business? " Yea." " Then won't ye fill up bill or tale MM MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE: TUESDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 13, 1870.' for these two Ninette and Tommy and leave a place to pat in the winner? Now then for the dice, gentlemen." : " The dice were brought on and the shaking commenced. There were three dice, and each player was entitled to threo throws. Of the first ten throws thirty-nine was the highest number cast. The eleventh turned up forty-two. Then the scores fell again till the twenty-first throw, when one of the gamesters threw out forty-nine. . The crowd were now all excitement. Forty-nine was a hard point to beat. The lowest number that could be thrown was nine; and the highest (nine sixes) was fifty-four making what is called an average throw, about thirty-otw and one half. Of a hundred throws tha majority will fall below thirty-two. ' ti 'i ; ' Again the dies rattled in the box, as the second gamester took his tnrn. But his throw was a low one. The twenty eighth belonged to the clerk of the boat, who hud now returned with the bill of sale. He threw forty-nine tieing the gamester. ' " Come, Ninette, it's your turn." The woman started, and quivered, and Pleas ed her hand over her heart. Only the groaning and pulling of the engine broke the stillness ot tho place. " Will the gentleman who paid for the chance throw for me?" she said. " Let vour boy throw for.yoa.Vreturn ed Mr. Clny, who shrank from tha or deal. "His luck should be better than mine." Tommy came forward and took the box. . . He shook the box and turned the dice upon the table. Three aces I , " Shnke again, Tommy," said , the plnntcr. " Its no use, master, I can't get fort nine." , i " But you've got your own chance, my boy." ''Aye," cried the Judge. "That was your mother" g chance. Now throw for the chance 1 gave you throw lor your selfbrace up and take heart and may Heaven help you I" ,.' That was not an assembly " of religi ously inclined persons, by any means; but the fervent petition of the Judge met with a warm and impulsive response of "Amen I" from nearly all present. Again the boy came forward and lifted the box. The only sound in that saloon, above the deep breathing of the spectators, was the clicking of the ivory cubes. Presently the first throw was made. 11 "Five five six, are sixteen," an nounced the planter, setting down the figures. . " The dice were gathered up and thrown again. "Six six and a five. Good. That's seventeen." The hoy took the box for the last throw, ana his mother leaned against a stanchion for support. At length and the book was opened! "Three sixes! eighteen! and that's fifty-one! Tommy, my boy, you're a trump. Now( Mr. Clerk; fill up the bill of sale, and I II sign it before all theso witnesses." The scene that followed can better be imagined than described. The last time I ever heard from Judge Underwood he was alive and well, though long retired from active life. Ninette washis housekeeper, and Tommy his most trusted servant. A Hoble Sponaor. Joseph II, Emperor of Austria, ollen traveled about his kingdom in ordinary citizen's dress.'so as not to be recognized. His desire was to discover whatever there might be wrong in the administration of the laws, and see that abuses might be corrected. One day he arrived at a small post vi I- luge sooner than he was expected. No horses were ready. Tha driver who was to carrv him on excused himself. "Sir." he said to the traveler of course not knowing him "you will bo obliired to wait a short time. I am very sorry; but you arrive a little ohad of time All uiy servants are absent.' "All! That is very singular, said the Emperor; "how does it happen?" "Ah! well, you must know that I have just had a little son born to me, and I wish to have him baptized at. once, l have sent 'all my servants among my friends to find a sponsor for him " "A sponsor! Is that all!? rejoined the Enmeror. with a smile; why not take me, and then the ceremony will be the sooner over, and then we can pro ceed." The driver, seeing that the stranger was. to all aoDearances, a gentleman. promptly accepted the olfer, and the whole party proceeded to tne cnurcn. The ceremony began. Arriving at tne point where the godiatber gives his name, surname, title or profession, the clergyman asked: ' Your name, it you please. " Joseph," replied the Emperor. " Very well; and your surname?" " My surname is that necessary?" " Why, of course you might give that." " Well, say Second." "Second! Singular name that; but down it goes. 4Now, Mr. Second,-what is your title?" I am called Emperor of Austria. At this announcement all the assist ants, seized with astonishment and fear, threw themselves at the feet tot their sovereign, and asked pardon for the fa miliarity with which they had treated him. " O. rise my friends, replied Joseph; '' there is no harm done. I m quite oontent. As for my little godson, 1 shall of course take him under my pro tection. Iam not the sponsor you ex pected perhaps; but, in pressing cases, it is necessary to take such aa we can get; so you must be satisfied."

What Ena-land Cn for War What hlio Sine) none in rsrspr, , Anlia and Afrlr from Wslirlue to ike Indian Mutlulee and JIt- daln. Vrnm tha London Times. August 27.1 All the country is now crying out that while Europe is in a blaze we, a great European power, with European duties now confessed, are utterly unprepared for those contests into which at any day we may bo drawn.- Nevertheless, it is no exaggeration, but the simple truth, to 1siiy tbut for nearly a quarter of a cen tury mat is, ior a periou aa lung aa tliat of the ereat t rench revolution and its wurs we have been busied with out intermission on those very prepara tions which are still supposed to be want- in if. It was in January. 1W47, thot the first note of alarm was sounded by the famous letter of the late Duke of Welling ton.. Twelvemonths afterward came a new revolution in Paris; then the great Sikh war: then the war in the Crimea; then the Indian mutiny, and, later still, the Abyssinian campaign. Thus, under impulse after impulse, we hnve for nearly five-and-twenty years together been laboring to complete those preparations for which it is now said we muv look in vain. How fur is that say ing true? The answer is not the least wonderful part of the story, and, that we may give it distinctly;'' we shall place a few broad figures before the reader's eye. I n the year 1845, just before our prepara tions began, we had, as an old return be fore us states, an army of some 100,000 men. As the army, however, in those days did not for statistical purposes comprise artillery or engineers, which were provided for under separnte esti mates, we must make a little addition to the total. It will not be much, for the entire strength of the artillery in that year was but 7590, and that of the engi neers 1288. We may say, therefore, that England possessed for service in In dia, in the colonies and at home about 120,000 troops, all told. Now for the comparison. At this mo ment we possess close upon 500,000 men. Looking to home service alone we had in 1H4A. 'according to the Duke of Wel lington's reckoning, an available body of 5000 men. We have now at least 4uu, 000. Of artillery, instead of 7000, we have upward of 50,000 at home and abroad, the regular artillery alone being nearly 30.000 strong. In short, if we take 90,000 as the strength of the regu lar army at home, and then add the num bers of the militia, volunteers and other reserve forces, we shall find that at the present moment we have within these islands a larger military force than that with which Prussia, four years ago, en tered the list against Austria, consoli dated Germany, and raised herself to that eminence which has provoked the present war. If, then, all this prodigious increase has actually been achieved by our twenty-five years' preparation, how can we be said to be unprepared? We answer that if we have got the men, and, indeed, the material of war, we have got nothing else. Of that machinery which makes an effective army out of a multi tude of men we have hardly a trace. Our militia i3 nearly 100,000 strong, not merely on paper, but on parade. Our volunteers, with the impulse which this tlew arm will give to the movement, may be reckoned at 200,000. These 300,000 men are there, and they are as good men as the Prussians who won the buttles of Weissenburg and Woerth. They have seen, indeed, almost as much service, for those Germans of the firat line were young conscripts enrolled since the campaign of Sadowu. But the Germans have a complete military or gnnization, while we have none. Every regiment of those young troops had its full and sufficient complement of skilled and disciplined officers, trained to ser vice of the best and most rigorous of systems. Every regiment hud its own brigade, every brigade its division, and all these divisions and bnguiles tlieir lull Quotas of commanders with com tnissariat, hospital and ull other services in perfect elliciency. From the Gene ral-in-Chief to the lowest drummer-boy every man knows his place in that mighty army, and every man was found in it. Here lies the difference between Eng lami and Germany. Our militia is not half o flicer ed, and of its few officers not halt are trained. Our volunteer olhcers have no knowledge but what, in spite of difficulties, they have contrived to pick uo themselves. For neither force is there anything like staff, administra tion, commissariat or other supports, The result is that on the first alarm we perceive the deficiency, and, instead of relying upon the enormous strengtn, we hastily pour a few thousand men into the line. The Prussian army of 400,000 men was, in the space of a fortnight, dispatched to the frontier as completely equipped, sup plied and supported in all respects as the flying column of 5000 men which we occasionally contrive to send out of Aldershott. Within three weeks after the declaration of war that army had already fought three bloody battles and won as many victories. It is now clear to what this success was due. As a purely military, caste the Prussian sol diers were not the equals of the French soldiers. Less of their lives had been spent in the barracks or camps; they had more of the civilian element among them, and they went to war not go much in the way of trade u in that of excep tional and temporary duty. In other words, they resembled our own volunteers in character and composition, but there, unfortunately for ourselveB, the resem blance ceases. Accomplished officers took these levies into battle, and a mas terly organisation gave them the full ad vantage of thair numeruial superiority at every point of attack. No troops in the world, It is now plain from our own correspondence, could have fought better thai the r ranch, but they were everywhere outnumbered, and, in the end, overpowered. Ihe citizen sol dier has beaten the professional soldier, but only because he was lea tiy proies sinnal officers and sustained by the most admirable professional organization. Our citizen soldiers have no such ma chinery to render their strength effect ive. As to being unpreparedt there are many degrees of preparation. It is utterly impossible that we should hold ourselves absolutely ready for war at any moment of peace. The strongest military monarchies are not prepared in that sense. . France, with all her aston ishing aptitudes, and what we have al ways supposed to be her incessant pre paration, was "unprepared" in 106, aud, indeed, a the fart seems to show, at this very crisis. Prussia herself was unprepared in so lar as her frontier fortresses were unarmed and unprovi sioned, and her army reqnired a fort-nifc-hf before it could take the field. But our preparations are far iq ar rear of such standards. If the alarm sounded in reality, we could call out the militia certainly, and the militia would come, but without officer and without as much organization as would enable it to keep the Hold. It would be the samn with the volunteers; and our authorities know it, and how that they know it. Th only branch of our land forces with any semblance of organiia tiso is the regular army, and o when the emergency arrive we augment that army a rapidly as possible. The militia, our real army of reserve, is only regarded as a nursery for the line, and as for volunteer, no military man cn tell how CIRCULATION". to employ them. Yet this unutilized, and therefore half useless, force repre. sent nothing less t7m 200,000 Jlritish mldiert, the very pith and marrow of the nation, as well educated as cour ageous, and as apt for duty as the best Germans who crossed the Ubine; martlaM) justice. A Brother' Keven; Marriage 1st inei iaios'a flenin The Baltimore Gazette, of the 25th instant, has the following novel case: Frank Du burst was arra'gned before Justice Wheeler, yesterday, on the charge of " threatening to shoot Charles Gillian, and forcing him to marry Eliza beth lJuhurat," a sisterof the first named. Robert Everett was also taken into cus tody, charged with being accessory to the alleged outrage. During the exam ination the complainant, Gillian, a modest youth of about nineteen sum mers, detailed his connection with the case in substance as follows: Several weeks since he met Miss Duhurst at her residence on Lexington street, near Poppleton, and being attracted by her personal appearance and fascinating manners, became an attentive admirer and visitor. During one of these visits he was led to believe that his would-be affianced was not as " chaste as snow," and he soon after ceased his visits to her residence. After having absented him self for several days, he received on Sat urday last a tender missive from his fair friend, containing a request for an im mediate interview. He at once obeyed the summons, and, on entering, found Miss Duhurst reclining carelessly in an arm-chair, and in a few moments they were both engaged in an interesting con versation. In a few minutes after the appearance of the luckless lover, Frank UuhurBt, the brother, entered the apart ment suddenly from the rear, and, draw ing a revolver loaded and capped, pointed it at the terrjfied youth; and, af ter insinuating that his sister charac ter had been ruined, demanded that he, Gillian, should instantly offer the on I ily He redress in his power, and marry her. 1 was very coolly informed that unless he yielded to the arrangement at once, his life would pay the forfeit. In view of the peculiar surroundings the lrtghtened lover consented hastily to the marriage Duhurst at once called his friend and ordered him to procure a license and the services of a minister, both ot which in dispensable articles were in due time obtained, and in the twinkling ot an ey the "hnnnv nair" were united in til : . - .r . . . . holy bonds ot matrimony, the minister, whose name does not transpire, it is sup posed being ignorant of the nature ot the case. 1 be happy man was then permitted to depart, which he did once, and left the city for several days to avoid meeting his bride, llehnaliy concluded to return and brave the con sequences, and accordingly did so yes terday, and obtained warrants for the arrest of Duhurst and Everett, both of whom, after the examination, were re leased on security to appear at the trim iual Court. Th affair has created con siderable excitement in the western sec tion of the city, where the parties are known. Cariosities of Knatern Nevada. A rare instance of the union of two distinct species of ruminants, says the White l ine News ot August 17, is to be witnessed at Lagan Canyon, in tin county. John O'Dougherty, superin tendent ot the social and ntcptoe nun ing comyany, has a flock of sheep among which are several ewes with a progeny which has resulted from contact with antelope, black-tailed doer, or the ot't's miintana: Ihe story told of them this: Originully the animals were driven from New Mexico,- but while en route westward were purchased from thei Mexican owners by tho Ferguson Broth ers, living near Ueep Lreek, on the ol overland stage road. They, thinking it would be useless to allow the ewes to bring forth as they naturally would should tho bucks be allowed to remain with them, caused tho latter to be emas culated, and the flock of . sheep was turned out to roam upon the hills and plains. Finally, they sped to the mountains, and last fall and a por tion ot tho winter were unattended and unnoticed by their owners, who permit ted them to roam as wild animals. Upon being driven up last spring, they were purchased by Air. u uougnerty, who, knowing the circumstances, was some what surprised to find that several of the ewes were in lamb, and in due time more astonished, as four of the number brought forth young, two of them bear- ingtrong resemblance to the antelope, while t.ie other two are declared a cross from the black tailed deer.- Whatever the sires of these queer little animals may have been, they are at any time to be seen among the flock of Eagan Canyon, and are well worthy attention from the skeptical of curious passers-by. those supposed to be crossed with the black- tailed are dark: in color and slim in build, with neck and head from which begin to project little horns re sembling the antelope; while the others are of a - dirty white, seemingly more rugged than the dark ones, and supposed to be the get of the antelope. Some points of the dark ones favor both antelope and deer the head and general contour of the animal being more like the antelope, while the hinder narts are marked in color like the deer. The light colored ones seem to us to re semble neither, and though others dis agree with us, we are inclined to tthe be lief that the sire must have been a big horned mountain sheep. We do not think these hybrids hardy creatures, as none of them are as active a the pure animal on either sidel antj they may never reacn mummy, junirqwnpr reiuseu an offer of $100 apiece for them and dam, it being his intention to place them in Central Park, New York, as curiosities of eastern Nevada. A London letter says: "Louis Napo leon has enough invested in English funds to bring hirn an income of 100,- OtlO a year. Upon this fact you may rely. Probably an equal sum stands i it vested elscwheae. 1 hus, in no case, would his be what ii vulgarly termed a lean sorrow. .Never had a human br ing better chances of making money, nd lew have better reason to know its value. lie had his hand upon all the bourses of Europe. A word nay, a frown was enough at one time to put half the broker on the continent into a cold sweat. If he wanted a half million francs he had hut to make a speech, or to put a few words in the Moniteur. All his old chums and supporter became rich in this way. Most of them were the biggest (and poorest) scamp in France, and all became millionaire, and the French Empire ha been from the first a swindle. The day will come when a aertaa of fVot will be published con cerning it which will disgust the world. There are men in France who know all about it, and the humane among them dread the effect of the revelation." Tla Charleston News at the 3d aaya of the funeral of Mr. Q'Donnovan Rosa: " The funeral of this aged and patriotic lady took place yesterday afternoon. The simple burial ervices of the Cath olic faith were performed at the Cath edral ciiril by the Iter, ratnersnaairr, and her remain were taken to Magnolia Cemetery.
