"Well, you can now full up. You've been here often, and I'll moke It sixty dnys. That'll let you out In time to make gnrden." " I demand a jury I " exclaimed the prisoner. " I'll send you np one in a day or two in a box, but for tho present you must get ready for a ridoiu the buggy." " I demand a Jury I " shouted the prisoner, as Bijuh led him away. Tho old Janitor took the crowbar out of its stall, pointed to the bloody hairs sticking to the butt end, and hoarsely whispered: " Sco thar I That man also w an ted nlurv!"

In the spring of 1819, 1 was sit ting in the parlor of the Montgom ery Hall at Montgomery, Alabama, conversing with ex-Governor Beu jamia Fitzpatrick, who had just returned from Washington. As soon as it was kuowu that he had returned home, the la w vers of that towu called to pay their respects, and ascertain his experience as a Senator of Congress. It was delightful to witness the cordial greeting betwecu this gen tleman and Isaac W. Ilayne, John A. Elmore, the Jaeksous, E. Y. Fair, Judge Abram Martin, and other members of the bar of Ala bama. Ho seemed to bo pleased beyond all measure, and related his Congressional experience, par ticularly dwelling on the last night of the sessiou. Ono of tho gen tlemen asked about II. S. Foote, then newly elected Sonator from the State of Mississippi. "Foote," said Fitzpatrick, "is tho most popular man in the Sen ate, and destined to be the most popular man in the United States." "I am told," said one of tho lawyers, " that tho scene enacted iu tho Senate on the last night of tho session was quito rich." "Yes," replied Fitzpatrick, "Foote aud Webster went from tho Senate Chamber arm hi arm every half hour to drink brandy in our private room, staggering as they went, both being drunk. On one of theso occasions Webster stepped at my desk, and pointing to Calhoun said:." Ho is the devil at a brush, but if you givo mo time, I think that I can meet him." I may state in this plaeo that Mr. Webster never took tho initiative in a debate, but always reserved himself for a reply. When this was mentioned to Calhoun, ho said: Webster never replied to auy re ply of mine." In tho autumn of 1852 1 was in Cahawba, Alabama, attending the Circuit Court. Tho Democratic lawyers held a meeting and adopt e? h resolution, saying that Ala bama should not receive her share of the" iurplua jrevenuo from the Treasury Department of tho Uni ted Slates. It was determined to wiu over the Senator, W'llinm R. King, who subsequently became Vice President when tho Demo cratic party triumphed iu 1853. A delegation was appointed to visit hint and present tho resolution, also requesting him to address the pcoplo of Dallas county, at the Court House nt Cahawba. I was ono of the delegates ap pointed. Wo visited Colonel King at his residence near Cahawba, and after spending a pleasant eve ning, presented tho letter and res olution boforo retiring (o bed. Iu the interval, however, ouo of our party spoke about tho propriety of Alabama's refusing to receive her proportion cf tho distribution. " Ah i " said King, " that is a sub ject about which Alabama will say nothing." But ho read our letter utter retiring, consented to address our cl.lizeus, and in his speech agreed to our resolution. The evening passed off very pleasantly, for Colonel King was racy, ufi'ablc, aud amused us'with a variety of anecdotes of public lifo in AVashington. Ho had just had a violent altercation with Henry Clay about Blair, the gov ernment printer, lu his speech denouncing Blair, tho Kentucky Scuator was very bitter, and ns Colonel King had placed the name o Blair iu nomination, he concei ved the idea that Clay designed some of the remarks for him. He therefore challenged Clay to light a duel. The oliallengo was accepted, but the quarrel was amicably adjusted through tho interference chiefly of William C. Preston, the Senator from South Carolina. Colonel King spoke very highly of the gallant attributes of Henry Clay. Ho compared him with Daniel Webster, much to tho dis paragement of the latter. " Clay," said King, "makes AVcbstor take his seat in tho Senate whenever he chooses." A man about thlr ty, having a shotgun on his shoulder and two pigcous in his hand, was yesterday standing on a street corner telling a crotvd that he had been out and killed five hundred pigeons since sunrise. "You'ro a liar!" shouted a man in tho edgo of the crowd. The stranger looked,. at him long and earnstly and then inquired: "Wtero d-d you get acequaintcd witi me?" .
