The Prince good naturedly joined in the him- self, but soon relapsed into his melancholy mood Bgain. The Squire was loo interest- ed in the matter to let it drop.

ACCOlT-VT OF O.VE OF HIS EFFOKTS AT TJJE DA11. At an early hour on the Olh of April 1S40, the court house in Clarksville Texas was crowded to overflowing. Save iu the war times, there had never been witnessed so a gathering iu the Red River coun- try, while [Lie strong feeling apparent in every Hushed face will sullicieut explain the matter following. About the close of 1S39, Geo. Hopkins, one of the wcalthies planters, and most in- fluential men of Northern Texas, offered a gross insult, lo Mary lillison, the young and beautiful wife of his chief overseer. The husband thve-.tcncd to chastise him out surveys are enonnon j-20.000 This is what we told, is Ihe case, by ihose who ouglil asked the Judge, glancing around the bar. The thirty lawyers were silent. "I will, your said a voice from thu thickest of the crowd, siluated behind the bar. At ihe tone of that voice many started half from their seats, and perhaps there was not a heart in the intense throng that did not beat somewhat quicke it was so une.irluly, sweet, ringing and mournful. The first sensation, however, was chang- ed laughter, when a tall, gaunt, spec- tral ligure, lhat no person present remem- bered to have seen before, elbowed his way i h rough Ihe crowd, and placed himself with- in the bar. His appearance was a problem to puzzle llie sphynx herself. His high, pale brow, and his small nervously twitching face, seemed active with the concentrated es- sence and cream of genius; but then his in- fantine blue eyes, hardly visible beneath their .massive arehes, looking- dim. dreamy, almost and his clothing was so shabby that the court almost hesitated to let ihe case proceed under his manage- ment. your name been entered on the rolls ot the demanded the Judge suspiciously.

In the examination of the witnesses the stranger evinced very litlle ingenuity as commonly thought, lie suffered eiic.h one to tell their own story, without interruption, though lie generally managed to make each one tell it over two or three lie put a cross questions, which with keen wit- nessips only served to correct mistakes, and lie made; no which, in mighty mem- oiies ouly tend to embarrass. The examination being ended, as coun- sel for tlie plaintiff, he bad aright to the opening as well as the closing speech; but to the astonishment of every one, he de- c lined iho former, and allowed the defence to lead off. Then a shadow might have been seen tu flit across the features of Pike, and to dark- en the bright eyes ol'Prenliss. They saw that they had "caught a but who it was, or how it happened, was im- possible to guess. Col. Ashley spoke first. lie dealt Ihe jury a dish of that close, dry logic, which years afterwards rendeied him famous in the Senate of the Union. The poet, Albert Pike, folio-wed with a vein of wit, and a half torrent of ridicule, in which neither the plaintiff" or her ragged attorney were forgotten or spared. The great Premiss concluded for lha de- leudanl, .wiih a glow of gorgeous words, brilliant as a shower of fallen stars, and with bursts of oratory that brought the house down in cheers, in which even ihe sworn jury themselves joined, notwithstan- ding tlio stern order o? the bench.

He hemmed the wretch with :i circumvulliation of strong evidence and impregnable argu- ments, cutting off all -hopes of escape, He piled up huge bastions of insurmount- able lie dug beneath the murderer and slanderer's feol, ditches of dilemmas, such ns no sophistry could overleap, and no secrets of ingenuity cvads; and" thus having, ae 0113 might say, impounded his victim, and girt him about like a scorpion in a circle of fire, he stripped himself to the woi-i of massacre.

He advised the panel after they should bring in a verdict for the plaintiff, not to offer violence to the defendant, however richly he might deserve it; iu other words not to lynch the villain, but to leare his punishment with God This wag ilia most ar'fiil trick of all, and best to insure vengeance. Thejui-y rendered a verdict of lifiy thou- sand dollars; and the niuht afterwards Hopkins was lakcii out of bed by lyjichera and beaten almost to death.

The crowd all turned out, and Taylor's sermon equalled .if :t di.l not surpass the splendor of hi.s forensic elJbrt. This is not exageration. I have listened, to.
