Among the many German emigrants tftnt from-'tniie to time lauded at Indian Point, on Matagorda Bay, on the coast of Texas, and proceeded inland for hun- dreds of miles to make a settlement on> the extreme frontier of that perilous re- gion, was a red-cheekad lass of Seventeen who, being an orphan and without rela- tives in the old country, had ventured over to try her fortunes in the new. But though without kin. Gentle Katy. as she was familiarly termed, was not without friends: and the same vessel that bro'ught her over had on board at least six strudy young fellows, who thought her more lovely than any other female they had ever seen. Gentle Katy cast her lot a new- ly-married couple, and with them went far northward, to settle in a beautiful spot on the green bank of the Llano. There, strange as it may there is no accounting for saw and fell in love with as rough and ugly a specimen of civilization as could easily be found in a region where the men have always been more celebrated for their pluck than beauty. Jank Hawksworth measured 'Blx feet and two inches; was rough in manner, blunt in speech, aud had never been inside of ;i school-house in his life; but he hud a good heart, and the courage of a lion. On one of his hunting excursions he came across Katy. and the result was mutual passion and marriage. Now then, my little said Jack playfully tapping the bride's chinr with his long, brown, bony I've :ot the bird, ye see, and wants the :age to put it in. I'm agwine to get the cage; so jest you stay here quiet till I come back." In her imperfect English. Gentle Katy managed to inrjuire how long he would be gone, Jack assured her'4 it wouldn't be a thousand years." the manner described, and. with only now and then a brief rest, continued the same hurried pace 'till near sunset, when he came upon the previous nigHt's- camp of the three Indians, showing that tints far he had gained upon his ene- mies. With the wildest anxiety of hope nnd fear, he now made an eager search for the foot-printe of his little wife, and when at length he found them, vfliere she had dismounted and been se- cured to a tree, thus proving that her Hfe had so far been spared and he had taken the proper eoursc, such contend- ing emotions of joy and rage took pos- session of at the discovery, An otd Aceuunt. A. rough looking specimen of human- ity was cruising through Chatham street, New York, not long since, when he- came plutnply upon a sjgccinichi of Kis race, about whom there' no mistake.
