During the session of the Supreme Court I observed a young man riding up and down the street as 1 supposed, in a violent passion. After a semicolon pause, which my appearance seemed to produce (for lie eyed me closely as 1 approached), he fetched whoop, and swore that he " could out swap any live man, woman, or child that ever trod these hills, or that ever straddled horseflesh since the days of old daddy Adam. Stran ger," said he to me, "did you ever see the Yaltow Blossom from Jasper ?" "I'm the boy," continued he; "perhaps a leelle, jist a leetle. of the best man at a horse swap that over trod shoe-leather.'' I began to feel my situation a little awk ward, when I was relieved by a man some what advanced in years, who stepped up and began to survey the " Yallow Blossoms'" horse with much apparent interest. This drew the rider's attention, ami he turned the conversation from ine to the stranger. " Well, rny old coon," said he. "do you want to swap bosses ? ' " Why, I don't know," replied the stranger —" I believe I've got a heart I'd trade with you for that one, if you like him. ' "Well, foteh up your nag, my old cock; you're jist the lark I wanted to get hold of I am perhads a ledle, jist a leetle, of the best)**! man at a horse-swap ihat ever stole cracklins out of mummj's lat-gourd. Where's your boss ?" a in like " I'll bring him presently ; hut I want to examine your horse a little." * " Oh! look at him ' said the Blossom, alighting and hitting him a cut; " look at him. He s the best piece of Atmliesh in the thirteen united universal worlds. There's no sort o mistake in little Bullet. He can pick up miles on his feet, and fling'em behind him as fast as trie next man's boss, I don't care where he comes from. And he can keep at it as long as the sun can shine without rest ing." Either from a native sprightiiness of dispo sition, from uncortrolhl ie activity, or from an unconquerable habit of removing flies by the stamping of the feet, Bullet never stood still; hut always kept up a gentle fly-scaring movement of his limbs, which was peculiarly interesting. " I tell you, man," proceeded the Yellow Blossom, " he's the best live hoss that ever trod the grit of Georgia. Bob Smart knows the hoss. Come here, Bob, and mount this hoes, and show Bullet's motions." Here Bul let bristled up and looked as if he had been hunting for Bob all day long, and had just r„.._j L .v Uof, sprang on his back. " Boo found him. oo-oo!'' said Bob, with a fluttering noise of the lips; and away went Bullet, as if in a quarter race, with all his beauties spread in handsome style. "Now fetch him back," Blossom. Bullet turned and came in pretty much as he went out * | * | ■ "Now trot him by." Builet reduced his tail to "customary ;" sidled to the right and left airily, and exhibited at least three varie ties of trot in the short space of fifty yards. "Make him pace!"' Boh commenced twitching the bridle and kicking at the same time. These inconsistent moves obviously, and most naturally, disconcerted Bullet; for it was impossible for him to learn, from them whether he was to proceed or stand still. He [attempted a canter and was checked again. I He stopped and was urged to go on. Bullet now rushed into the wide field of experiment and struck out a gait of his own that com pletely turned the tables upon bis rider, and certainly deseived a patent. It seemed to have derived its elements of thejig, the minu et, and the cotillion. If it was not a pace, it ceriainly had pace in it, and no man would venture to call it anything else ; so it passed off to the satisfaction of the owner. " Walk him ! ' Bullet was now home again ; and he walked as if money was staked on him. The stranger, whose name, I afterward learned, was Peter Ketch, having examined him to his heart's coetent, ordered his son Neddy to go and bring up Kit. Neddy soon appeared upon Kit; a well-formed sorrel of the middle size, and in good order. His tout ensnnble threw Bullet entirely iftto the shade, though a glance was sufficient to faiisly anv one that Bullet had the decided advantage of him in point of intellect. ' ihe til er with. but for Why, man, ' said Blossom "do you bring such a hoss as that to trade for Bullet? Oh I see you're no notion of trading." "Ride him off, Neddy," said Peter. Kit put off at a handsome lope. "Trot him back !" Kit came in at a long sweeping trot, and stopped sudddenly at the crowd. " Well," said Blossom, "let me look at; him ; maybe he'll do to plough " Examine him!" said Peter, taking hold of the bridle close to the mouth ; " he's noth ing but a tacky. He an't as pretty a horse as Bullet, I know; but he'll do. Start 'em to gether foi a hundred and fifty mile; and if Kit an't twenty mile ahead of him at the coming out, any man may take Kit for noth ing. I3ut he's a monstrous mean horse, gen tlemen ; any may see that. He's the scariest horse too, you ever saw. He won't do to bunt on, no how. Stranger, will you let Ned dy have your rifle to shoot off him ? Lav the rilie between his ears. Neddy, and shoot at the blaze in that stump. Tell me when his head is high enough." Ned fir d, and liit the b'aze; and Put did not move a hair's breadth. "Neddy, take a couple of sticks and beat ed ed Sc on that hogshead at Kit's tail." Ned made a tremendous rattling, at which Bullet took fright, broke his bridle, and dash ed off in grand style; and had stopped all mrther negotiations by going home in disgust had not a traveler arrested him and brought him hack ; but Kit did not move. "Dll tell you, gentlemen,"continued Peter, "he's the scariest horse you ever saw. He an't as gentle as Bullet, but he won't do any harm if you watch him. Shall I put him iii a cart, gig or wagon for you, stranger P He'll cut the same capers there he does here. He's a monstrous mean horse." During all this time Blossom was examin ining him with the nicest scrutiny. Having examined his frame and limbs, he now looked at his eyes. " He's curious look eyes. " He's got a curious look out of his eyes," said Blossom. in_a dark night as if he' had eyes." " Oh yes, sir," said Peter, "just as blind as a bat. Blind horses always have clear eves. Make a motion at his eyes if you please, sir." Blossom did so, and Kit threw up his head rather as if something pricked him under the chin tlian as if fearing a blow. Blossom re peated the experiment, and Kit jerked back in considerable astonishment. ' Stone blind, you see, gentlemen," pro ceeded Peter ; " but he's just as good to trav " Blame my buttons," said Blossom, "if 1 like them eyes." " No," said Peter, "nor I neither. I'd rath er have Vm made of diamonds; but they'll do, if they don't show as much white as Bul let's." "Well," said Blossom, "make a pass at me." "No," said Peter ; " you made the banter, now make your pass." „ " Well, I'm never afraid to price my bosses. You murt give me twenty-five dollars boot." " Oh. certainly; say fifty, and my saddle and bridle in. Here, Neddy, my son, take away daddy's horse." ' i "Well," said Blossom, "Ive made pass, now you make yours." " I m for short talk in a horse-swap, and therefore always tel! a gentleman at once what I mean to do. You must give me ten dollars." Blossom swore absolutely, roundly, and profanely, that he never would give boot. " YVeii," said Peter, "I didn't, care about trading; lint you cut such high shines, that I thought I'd iike to back you out. and I've done it. Gentlemen, you see I've orought him to hack " my " Come, old man," said Blossom. I've been joking with you. I begin to think you do want to trade; therefore, give me five dollars and take Bullet. I'd rather lose ten dollars any lime than not make a trade, though I hate to fling away a good hoss." at of Well," said Peter, " I'll be as clever as you are.* Just put the five dollars on Bullet's | bark, and hand him over; it's a trade." ■ Blossom swore again, as roundly as before, that he would not give boot; and, said he, Bullet wouldn't hold five dollars on his back no how. But, as I bantered you, if you say an even swap, here's at you." " I told you," said Peter. " I'd be as clever as you; therefore, here goes two dollars mors just for trade sake. Give me three dollars, and it's a bargain." Blossom repeated his former assertion ; and here the parties stood for a long time, and the hy-standers (for many were now collected) began to taunt both parties. After some time, however, it was pretty unanimously de cided that the old man had backed Blossom cut. At length Blossom swore that he "never would be backed out for three dollars after hanteiing a man;" and, accordingly they closed the trade. " Now," said Blossom, as he handed Peter his ihe three dollars, " I'm a man, that when he makes a bad trade, makes the most of it un til he car. make a better. I'm for no rues or after-claps " " That's just my way," said Peter; " I nev er goes to law to mend my bargains." " Ah, you're the kind of boy I love to trade with. Here's your hoss, old man. Take the saddle and bridle off him, and I'll strip yours ; but lift up the blanket easy from Bullet's back for he's a mighty tender-backed hoss." The old man removed the saddle, but the blanket stuck fast. He attempted to raise it, and Bullet bowed himself, switched his tail, danced a little ar.d gave signs of biting. " Don't hurt him, old man,/ said Blossom, archly, "take it off easy. I am, perhaps, a leetle of the best man at a horse swap that ever catehed a coon." Peter continued to pull at the blanket more and more roughly, and Bullet became more and more cavortish ; insomuch that when the blanket came off he had reached the kicking point in good earnest. The removal of the blanket disclosed a sore on Bullet's back-bone that seemed to have defied all medical skill. It measured six full inches in length and four in breadth, and had as many f'eautures as Bullet had motions. The laugh became loud and general at the old man's expense, and rustic witticisms were ' " ii i . I i , , . i i liberally bestowed upon him and his late pur- 1 chase: asked the old man " if he thought j Bullet would lei five dollars lie on his back."I He declared most seriously that he had own-' i ,, i ,, /. , ed that horse three months, ami nstpr chs ed that horse three months, and never covered before that lit i uad a sore oaek, "or he j never should have thought of trading him," Sc c,. &c I The old man bore it all with the most phi- 1 iosophic composure.

He bore them as long as he could; and, when lie could contain himself no longer, he began, with a certain wildness of expression which gave a peculiar interest to what he ut tered : " His back's mighty bad off; but dod drot my soul if he's put it to daddy ns had as he thinks he has, for old Kit's both blind and deef, I'll bt dod drot if he eint." " The devil he is," said Blossom. " Yes, dod drot my soul if he eint. You walk him, and see if he eint. His eyes don't look like it; but he'd jist as leve go agm the house with you, or in a ditch, as anyhow. Now you go try him." The laugh was now turned on Blossom ; and many rushed to test the fidelity cf the boy's report. A few ex periments established its truth beyond con troversy. " Neddy," said the old man, "you oughtn't to try and make people discontented with their things. Stranger, don't mind what the little boy says. If you can only get Kit rid of them little failings, you'll find him all sorts of a horse. You are a ledle the best man at a horse-swap that ever I got hold of; but don't fool away Kit. Come, Neddy, my son, let's be moviug; the stranger seems to be getting snappish. A POOR bachelor, after coming out of the small end of the horn in all his matrimonial speculations, pathetically exclaims: When I remember all The girls I've met together, I feel like a rooster in the fall, Exposed to every weather; I feel like one who treads alone Some barn-yard all deserted, Whose oats are fled, whose hens are dead And oft'to market started.

J., was lately tried by a jury for the crime of nibbling—go ing into groceries and clutching off pieces of cheese, taking crackers and buttering them, and taking other liberties of the same sort. The jury after hearing the evidence, found the accused guilty, ar.d rendered a verdict of $25 for the grocer, Mr. John Bayard, at whose store the nibbling occurred. Fall of Rock.—A day or two since, the large table rock below the Suspension Bridge at Clifton, fell, taking with it a large section of the bank. The concussion produced by the fall is said to have shaken the bridge from end to end, as well as a portion of the land and tenements in the vicinity, causing many to imagine that an earthquake had taken place. The rock and earth had formed a small island in the river, but is expected that the action of the water will speedily remove it, as the current is very strong and swift at 'hat spot. Of late years the rock slides have been very frequent in the vicinity of the Falls —almost too frequent to give persons confi dence in their title deeds.—[St. Catharine's (C. W.) Journal. Crowded. —" Mother, where's the man gping to sleep ?" asked a girl of fifteen to her mother, who had just promised a night's rest in their out of the way hut. "I'll have to put him in with you and Jack and Sue and Bet, I suppose," was the reply, "and if it's too crowded, one of ycu must turn in with me and Dad and Dick and the twins." A boy who asked a Bfostan police officer for shelter in the station said: "You see, jtiaptain, first my father died and then my mother married again, and mother died, and my father married again, and somehow or other I don't seem to have no parents at all, nor no home, nor no nothing." ; it, a Q.UARTZ MINING ENACTMENT Section 1.
