es of the Flush Times in Alabama The only one of we have come across is the following laughable story which will be duly appreciated by all our readers who desire to fat i LJ Trie fall assizes of the year on in the East Riding and my friend Paul found himself duly indicted b Judge C for an assault and battery commuted on tie body of one Philip sins in the pence of the state then and there being In felt more than ordinary interest in the case the aforesaid Paul be- ing a particular friend of mine and more over the case presented some singular and mysterious features The defendant was one of the best natured and most peaceable citizens of the and until recently before this fighting had been on of intimacy nnd friendship with the gentleman upon whom assault was made The assault of a character no one knew the causa of it though every one knew from the character of that vocation had been given him I no better informed than the rest When chim came to employ me In the case I ed to possess myself of the facts To inquiries he only replied that he had done as he had for good and sufficient vexed when the examination stopped short of bringing out all the facts and incidents the relations of the parties and the like He had been struck with the expression used by pine apple sop and was evidently uneasy in mind in sent slate of inability to unravel it The pause in the was nest trying gave him an opportunity of calling me to him Said what did he mean by I told him there was a mystery about it which I could not explain A mystery Weil here B in confidence just tell rne it shan't go any further of course you know I told him I ignorant of as was every one else The judge then assured mo I had better see my client and get him to state it to the court that be would give all proper weight to it in fixing ishment but that as the case stood hs should have to make an example at him 1 took Paul aside and told him what the judge had said and added my own counsel to his Honor's but with no effect Re- the thing in my mind I got more and more bothered the mure I thought about it I began to look at the circum- stances more narrowly that it was no sham or irick was evident No one would have taken such a beating for fun that the provocation did not touch any domestic Finding a great still to veal anything on the part of and fearing that if he were present he would interpose objections to the presentation of the proof as to provocation I arranged it so that the sheriff should detain Paul from the court house until he could get the timony in In order to a more perfect ing of the matter I had as well state here that was a young gentleman who had some two or three years before ted in the county and was doing al land agency and collecting business surveying lands having been ged as principal in an academy He had graduated at the college at Knoxville Ten- and cherished sentiments of great reverence for his venerable alma mater t very highly of the society of that somewhat secluded village I verily believe he considered at once the Athens and Paris of America abounding in all the refinements and ing with the polish of a rare and exquisite seat of learning the way town fifty miles from the that he did not more I told him that it re t- choose to say was impossible for defend him unless he me in possession of the facts and him that whatever he communicated shoud be held in strict professional But nothing I could say produced any change in his determination I was about abandoning his case remarking to him thai if ho felt no Confidence in his counsel or not enough to induce him to tell him the facts he might be assured that it was no less his interest than my wish that he should go whore he would be better suited he persisted lhat it was from no want df confidence in me that he refused and that ho regarded me with the same feelings of friendship ho had always me and concluded by telling me thai if I re fused to take his case he should employ no other lawyer but would let the matter proceed without defence 1 told him I did not see any hope of his escaping severe punishment as the case stood lo which ho replied that he expected it but he hoped T would if possible prevent his jail The case came up in the regular course arid tried The facts were brought out plainly enough The assault was made in public and the weapon a large cane with which the defendant had given Cousins an awful boating gashing his head and causing the flow The only words spoken by in the course of the affair Now you how pineapple Qf course on such jury found the defendant guilty and the court retained in custody until some leisure was given it to fix tho punishment which by the statute the court was bound to impose Judge C was a pretty rian and kept the police the good order There had been of late many violations of law a ing disposition was felt by the the court to these but was so so kind hearted and gentlemanly a fellow that great deal of sympathy was felt for him general wish that in out of Among the of Judge relations which the defendant might have self-delusion of dear desired to keep from being exposed wasj immortalized by apparent from the fact that my client had no relatives in the country and only girl he ever went to see was Cousin's ter There were two facts I made sure of the first lhat this meeting was after Cousin's return from New Orleans which occurred a few days after himself had arrived from that city the second that Cousins had kept out of the way and had received a note shortly before court from I made up my mind that the quarrel ginated in something that had occurred between the parties in New Orleans I happened to know too that Samuel erts Esq one of tho cutest chaps we had about town and up to in er he happened to was in New Orleans at the time these young gentlemen were and I determined to get the facts out of him if I could Shortly after breakfast on the next day after the judgment still delayed partly by request and partly by tho curiosity being yet sallied out with a package in my going to the Sam was on the street I knew if there was any thing to be concealed by him the only way to get at it was by a coup So half passing him and putting my hand on his shoulder and looking him in the eye into a laugh Weil Bam that quarrel between chirn nnd Cousins in New Orleans and it grew out it beal everything you ever heard of home of luxury and com merce Letters and arts and great men and refined modes and cultivated manners and women of a type lhat they never be- fore had been moulded there ed in his partial fancy prodigal ef such generous appreciation The magnificent old Capt Jackson scarcely equale the hallucination of Paul the sight and scenes the little short of celestial sto ry of and about the city of Knoxville a he would persist in calling that women mouths is not certain which to their B got th rough the pla Cousins had been laughing with the himself now and how He liked the B answered in these I think the ry good but don't you think the sauce is rather Spoke the words very loud heard some sensation calling Consul's clerk drank to the English Con- clerk from he leeve to a green ble laughter women ior French No one tation it has easily to be seen through Dress th at i n ot h a- so Id ance as a neat ther y and tinsel drank with all the turned old man next Sleep Virginia line Wasn't it thp queerest affair lhat ever I am defending and it he never told me up to last night what cause of the whole thing look I said this very flippantly and with a knowing air as if I knew all about Sum's eyes twinkled as he isn't it piece of business you ever heard of said I and We must gal Paul out of this judge is viperish and if we don't do something sis in jail is tho very lowest time we can get Paul off with Sam just step here rne the particulars of matter in New Orleans as you understand them for you know any discrepancy between Paul's statement and yours might hurt things mightily and I want to know ex- how the case stands said Sam I can't do it I ised Paul on honor that I wouldn't lion it to a soul and I won't do it unless 1 am compelled So you needn't ask mo unless you bring n note from Paul ing me from the I saw he was determined and it was was useless to press the point The judge in the meantime thorns of anxiety He had been sing with the clerk and sheriff attorney but to no purpose they only in- flamed his curiosity the more the ry seemed inscrutable Me came to my room twice that I was see me on the subject Early in morning as 1 was taking a comfortable snooze his honor came into my room and woke me up said he this thing about young distresses me a greal deal I feel really concerned about his case and if you will tell ma how that shall feel yed my was an itching He was under of a case something bo- and folt not a little and originated ter about it My mind mind would be relieved Of course B you know about the matter and I sure you it will be to the interest of your client to reveal the whole ly his interest What is I told him 1 really did not know and could not find out as yet but I thought I had got the and if he it could all be brought to tight 1 was convinced that if it did come out it would make for the benefit of Paul The judge I might rely oh he would see if any one dared to it Was proper to bring out and a thousand miles from anywhere eise I speak of its limes Pau had been assiduous in the cultivation o manners His model was of course tha he found at Knoxville He had a grea penchant for fashionable life and fash life was the life of the upper tens of Knoxville Rusticity an vulgnrity were abominations to him Ti go back to Knoxville and get to the top o tho ton was the extreme of Paul's ambition Paul was an excel lent fellow sometimes vain sensitive to a fault and thin skinned something nre tenuous as to fashion style and manners indeed the girls had got to regard him a of village Beau I got out a and sent tho sherif Roberts with orders from the judge for his immediate attendance The com was in session and I proposed taking uj this matter of before the business of the day was gone into Samuel came into the court discomposed but on Observing that Bee chim was not present became reassured His Honor directed me to proceed with at the and telling the witness to take his time Roberts took the stand He testified to this effect indeed this is nearly a litera transcript of my notes taken at the time Witness knows the parties ha is inti acquainted with them knows tha and Cousins were on good terms indeed quite friendly till May last company with witness they went together to New Orleans talked a deal of Knoxville the girls fashions anc society Cousins listened attentively the parties must have bean friendly in New Orleans on the 18th a bout 10 A Monday intended to re- main until Thursday no boat going up until Took lodgings at Heard a conver sation going on between the mode Cousins had been in the city and the hotel frequently so said knew the rules and the etiquette had been at the best hotels in knew their rules but had been from Knoxville a good while therefore was not certain but ho might make some ward might be fatal to his acter Cousins offered as cicerone said B might rely on him to put him told to take items from him thanked him kindly At 3 the gong rang for dinner B started thought at first that en- gine that worked the cooking stove burst its boiler C told him it was the gong B asked him if it were not a new thing long as he had been in Knoxville had er heard of snch a asked C if he could believe it Went to dinner of fare was handed B wished to know if there was any lo translate the French there was in ville got along pretty well until just as B had taken a piece of pineapple on his plate the waiter came along and put a bowl before every guests water and a slice of lemon in it asked Cousins what that the pineapple B the C replied Sup for said he thought bowl and

were not vary serious but knowing how sensitive was on the subject I was con- gratulating myself that he was not present Turning from the witness as he finished 1 was pained to see Ive had come in after tha trial began poor Paul no- on bench I tried to console 1 told him not to mind it it was a bagatelle but he only squeezed my hand and brokenly said B you you are my best friend I shall never
