Sop for tlie Pineapple, Some one is publishing in the Southern Liuvrary Messenger what he calls "Sketch- es of the Flush Times in Alabama." The only one of Uiem we have come across is the following laughable story, which will be duly appreciated by all our readers who desire to k2row fat.' i LJ Trie fall assizes of the year on in the East Riding, and my friend, Paul Beecbim, found himself duly indicted b ifore Judge C., for an assault and battery commuted on tie body of one Philip Cou- 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 ounty and, until recently, before this exparte fighting, had been on trrms of intimacy nnd. friendship with the gentleman upon whom ihe assault was made. The assault wns of a ferocious- character; no one knew the causa of it though every one knew, from the character of Beecbim, that some'extraordinary pro- vocation had been given him. I wns no better informed than the rest. When Bee- chim came to employ me In the case, I Iri-j ed to possess myself of the facts. To n] 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 Beeehim, 'pine apple sop.' and was evidently uneasy in mind in his-pre- sent slate of inability to unravel it. The fiist pause in the case-he was nest trying gave him an opportunity of calling me to him. Said what did he mean by 'pifreapple I told him there was a mystery about it which I could not explain. "A mystery, ha! Weil, novr, 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 the: pun- 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- volving 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 indispositioa still, to veal anything, on the part of Beechitrii 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 tes- timony in. In order to a more perfect understand- ing of the matter, I had as well, state here that Beeehim was a young gentleman who had some two or three years before "loca- ted" in the county, and was doing a'gener- al land agency and collecting business, surveying lands, having been enga- ged as principal in an academy. He. had graduated at the college at Knoxville. Ten- nessee, and cherished sentiments of great reverence -He for his venerable alma mater. t very highly of the reckectabie, society of that somewhat secluded village. I verily believe he considered Ktmxville at once the Athens and Paris of America, abounding in all the refinements and shin- ing with the polish of a rare and exquisite seat of learning, the way, not-to-be-forgot-ten, 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 wouldplacd me in possession of the facts, and assurec him that whatever he communicated shoud be held in strict professional Confidence.- 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 felt..-for 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 beingsentto jail. The case came up in the regular course arid wns 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 Beeehim in the course of the affair "Now, you, how like-that; pineapple Qf course on such leslimo.ny, :he jury found the defendant guilty; and the court retained Beeehim 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 good: disciplina- rian and kept the police business-of the good order. There had been of late many violations ;of law, a grow- ing disposition was felt by the pepplerand the court to put-clown these but Beeehim was so so kind hearted and gentlemanly a fellow, that --a "great deal of sympathy was felt for him. general wish, that in out of Among the of Judge :C. 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 the: only girl he ever went to see was Cousin's sis- ter. There were two facts I made sure of; the first, lhat this meeting was imme- diately after Cousin's return from New. Orleans, which occurred a few days after Beeehim 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 Beeehim. I made up my mind that the quarrel ori- ginated in something that had occurred between the parties in New Orleans. I happened to know, too, that Samuel Rob- erts, Esq., one of tho cutest chaps we had about town, and "up to trnp'5 in wherev- er he happened to be5 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 verdict-r-thu judgment still delayed, partly by request, and partly by tho judge's curiosity being yet sallied out with a package in my going to the posf-ofnce. 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 d'state. So half passing him. and putting my hand on his shoulder, and looking him in the eye, brokft into a laugh, "Weil, Bam. that quarrel between Bee- chirn nnd Cousins in New Orleans, and it grew out it beal everything you ever heard of home of luxury, and the.'mart'of 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 in'o, there abound- ed in his partial fancy, prodigal ef such generous appreciation.

DoiAthe 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 ihe blamedest piece of business you ever heard of 'Yes.5 said I, "and We must gal Paul out of this judge is viperish and if we don't do something, sis month.? in jail is tho very lowest time we can get Paul off with. Ndvv, Sam, just step here rne the particulars of ihe 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- actly how the case stands.' said Sam, 'I can't do it. I prom- ised Paul, on honor, that I wouldn't men- 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 reliev- ing me from the pledge.3 I saw he was determined, and it was was convei- useless to press the point. The judge, in the meantime, thorns of anxiety. He had been sing with the clerk, and sheriff, and.Stale's attorney, but to no purpose; they only in- flamed his curiosity the more; the myste- ry seemed inscrutable. Me came to my room twice that I was see me on the subject. Early in ihe morning, as 1. was taking a comfortable snooze, his honor came into my room and woke me up. said he, 'this thing about young Beeehim distresses me a greal deal. I feel really concerned about his case, and if you will tell ma how that dif- shall feel bet- yed, my was an itching He was al- under of a case He'could something bo- hind'j and folt not a little disap'poirited and fiedlty originated, ter about it. My mind mind would be relieved. Of course B., you know al! about the matter, and I as- sure you it will be to the interest of your client to reveal the whole ly his interest. What is it'R I told him 1 really did not know, and could not find out as yet; but I thought I had got the the: and, if he wouldaid-rno, it could all be "brought to tight; .1 was convinced that if it did come out, it would make decidly 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 pre-raijroad 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 ionable 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 top-notcl 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 a.sort of village Beau Brutnmell. I got out a subprena 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 Beechirn's before the usua business of the day was gone into. Samuel came into the court, somewha discomposed, but on Observing that Bee chim was not present, became reassured His Honor directed me to proceed with th< at the beginriiiig 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 matelv acquainted with them; knows tha Beeehim and Cousins were on good terms, indeed quite friendly till May last, li: company with witness they went together to New Orleans; Beeehim talked a gren! deal of Knoxville, the girls, fashions, anc society Cousins listened attentively -knows the parties must have bean friendly. in New Orleans on the 18th, a bout 10 A.
