Immediately after getting under Good head to adopt a favorite a Ackwood one person attracted Universal attention by the annoying eagerness with which he endeavoured to make up a party at cards. Indeed his Oft repeated and persevering efforts to that end soon become insulting and unendurable and yet his appearance was such As to deter the bravest on Board from administering the chastisement which he so richly deserved. He was a huge mass of mighty Bones and Muscles with Swarthy features bearing the impress of Many n scar piercing Black eyes that seemed to possess the Power of blasting the cold gleaming eyes such As haunt the memory painfully a rank Luxuriance of Coal Black hair immense whiskers and moustache. The Savage looking figure Washa Bitil in the costliest clothing and adorned with a profusion of jewelry while the outlines of several Mur Derous weapons were plainly distinguished be Neath Hia Gaudy Vest and superfine coat. Nor did he need these to Render him an object of terror. A connoisseur in the science of Belliger ent gymnastics would have confidently pronounced him a match for any five men on the Leek without any Aid from Lead or cold steel. At length after Many failures he prevailed on a wealthy Young merchant of Natchez to join him in a game of poker. They sat Down beside a Small table near the bar and a Jere soon absorbed in that most perilous of most excitements of which the two alluring ingredients Are the vanity and Pride of individual skill and the uncertainty of general Hazard. At first the stakes were Small arid the run of cards seemed wholly in favor of the merchant but presently they bet More freely and Gold eagles and Hun dred Dollar notes were showered Down with extravagant ardor and then the current of for tune away from the Young merchant and flowed to the professional Gam Bler in a Stream Lik e the Ocean s tide. As usually happens in such Caser his want of Suc Cess Only piqued and maddened the loser and he sought to recover himself by venturing such desperate ventures As could not but deepen and con Linn his ruin. And thus they continued during a whole summer night. The intensity of their excitement became equivalent to insanity. Every nerve was Strung Energy of the brain was taxed to the were Sej hard As those of antagonists in tug of sweat rolled from their brows like great drops of rain. The i Saenger formed a Circle around the players and looked on with that interest which a concentrations of intellect and passion never tans to Inu no _. Urn Bluatt at int a cant and the Gambler attracted All eyes and kept Many awake and gazing till morning. Among the latter was one presenting a countenance so piteous that it might have melted hearts of mar ble to tears. A Pale and exquisitely Beautiful fact peeped incessantly from the half opened door of the ladies Cabin weeping All the while As if impressed by some dreadful sensation of immedi Cable sorrow. It was the merchant s Lovely wife weeping her Farewell to departing Hope there was one Spectator also whose appear Ance and action excited almost As must curios Rosity As the players did themselves. He was a tall spare mar. Of about thirty with handsome features Golden hair keen Blue eyes of Preter natural brightness and his firm thin lips wore a perpetual smile of the strangest the most inscrutable meaning. With the exception of his red Calico shirt this person was dressed wholly in Buck skin ornamented with Long swaying tassels arid wild figures wrought out of variegated beads after the fashion of some Western indians. Lie beside the and held in his left hand a Sheet of paper in right a Large Pencil with which Ever and atom he dashed off a few words As if engaged in tracing the Progress of the game. Still the merchant and the cd in their physical and mental toil. The dial of the stars with its thousand fingers of Golden fire pointed to the world shadows of Midnight but still they did not pause. It still was Shaf file and Cut and pass Ante up and i Call and raked own the towards the morning a tremendous storm arose. The red lightning hashed Hail poured like a Frozen great River roared till it rivalled the loudest thunders of heaven and the very Pilot at the wheel was alarmed. But the mad players heard it not. What was the tumult of the raging elements to them whose destiny Hung upon the turning of a card anal the smiling Blue eyed stranger in Buck Akin still stood by them with his Pencil and paper calmly noticing the devel Pementa of the game. Dity Nally the storm passed As the Beautiful Grey out like a thing of glory in the traded with his Rae infatuated merchant Dis of his Folly. He dared the Climax comprising his last cent of Mone j wind dollars on two pairs of the Whin Kertson old Bier called him they showed hands and the1 Blackleg had two pairs of the the merchant dropped to the floor As if he had been shot through the brain and that Beautiful Young wife flew to his Side and fell at two dollars a year whole no. 622. Shrieking upon his bosom. They were both borne away insensible to the indies Cabin. As he deposited the winnings in his pocket the Gambler emitted a hoarse laugh that sounded frightful As the Chuckel of a fiend but he instantly lost color Asa Low Calm Voic remark de in his villain you play Strong hand Dif rent games but Here stands one who can beat you at All of f beggar who Are you to banter a gentleman thus rudely i am James Bowie of the other answered with a ringing laugh and you Are John Lafitte a Bastard of the old the Gambler reeled in his chair As if he had been struck with a Thunderbolt but recovering again from the Shock in a moment asked in a firm Whit game do you wish with me poker firsthand pistols afterwards play replied Bowie. Very rejoined the other and they took their seats at the table. For a time the Success seemed about equally balanced and the gain and loss being alternate. At last the Gambler ventured one of his skillful manoeuvres in dealing. Bowie smiled strangely As his Quick Eye detected the trick. He Saul nothing however but looked at his hand and bet five thousand dollars staking the Money in ten Large Bills. The Gambler went five thou Sand dollars higher which resulted in a Bowie held four jacks Cut with his habitual fiendish chuckle his antagonist showed Lour exclaiming As he did so by heaven the pile is mine shouted Bowie both hands he raked a Heap of notes to the tune of Twenty thousand dollars into his own pocket. Choking and purple with rage and shame the Gambler to the Hurricane deck and let pistols be. Trumps this turn Good is Gold replied Bowie and the two hastily ascended the stairs and assumed their separate Gambler Over the Stern and Bowie Over the Bow. At that instant the Sun was rising in a cloudless sky. Nature looked Sublime. The Woods and Waters appeared As parts of one divine picture with the boundless Blue of heaven for its Back ground. The Broad Bosomed River rolled away like an immense Sheet of burnished Silver speckled Here and there with the Flash of Golden bubbles shining fishes gambled in the sparkling wave and All the Bright those Sweet Singaram whose life is a dream and that dream Only their wild Anthem to the new Day while the two great due lists the most deadly Ever known in the and their fingers Ili e at Ryfle pared to slay and be slain. I am ready. You give the cried Bowie in his Clear ringing voice and that inseparable smile of strange meaning on his lips. I am ready. Fire shouted the Gambler in tones murderous As death. The two pistols roared simultaneously. Bowie did not move though he barely escaped with his life for the Bullet of his foe had Cut away one of the Golden locks of his yellow Gambler was shot through the heart and drop p8g on the Sriri k of the deck had almost Turri a Ltd into the River. He was buried by the squatters at the next Wood Yard. And thus perished justly a Bastard son of the great pirate Lafitte. R there never was a jury Emp annexed in the West who would have brought in a verdict against any Man for killing More especially under the circumstances because pub Lic opinion pronounced that he ought to be and were the desperadoes that Bowie commonly exterminated. The generous Victor immediately proceeded to the ladies Cabin and restored the winnings Gambler to the Young merchant and Iii Beautiful wife who both received the Boon As a gift from heaven with much gratitude and Joy. If we should write a volume concerning the exploits of James Bowie not be rendered More transparent than it is revealed in the foregoing anecdote. He always the Friend of the feeble the protector of the oppressed and the sworn enemy of tyrants. He was Brave without beyond precedent. And though he had Gigantic ones too he atoned for All the errors of a life by the splendor of his magnificent death. His Tomb is the Maluno his epitaph the word and his name will fill a Humble though Safe Niche in the Temple of Freedom through All time. He can never be forgotten till the. Bowels of the Earth cease to furnish Metal for the fabrication of those Bright Blades of steel which Bear Hia imperishable sunday Tii fits. Rara rare and Noble specimen of the True Genus Man in our office to Day. A Young citizen who takes and pays seventeen papers dailies and there is a Gem in society. He is ii sound he is in. Constant Good humor adored by and is say to every Man an example we Buffalo Kef misc1maneous, Why epidemics rage at night. It was in one night that perished by the plague of London of 1665. It was at night that the army of Sennacherib was destroyed. Both in England and on the continent a Large proportion of the cholera cases in its several forms Havo been observed toy occurred Between one and two o clock the morning. The danger of exposure to night has been a theme of physicians trom time imme Morial but is remarkable they have never yet called in the Aid of chemistry to account for the fact it is at night that the stratum of air near est the ground must always be the most charged with particles of animal Zed matter Given out from the skin and deleterious gases such As carbonic acid Gas the product of respiration and Sulphur Ted Hydrogen the pro duct of that . In this Day ases and vaporous substances of All kinds Rise in the air by Rarefaction of heat at night when this Rarefaction leaves them they fall by an increase of Gra Vity if imperfectly mixed with the atmosphere while the gases evolved during the night instead of ascending remain at nearly the same level. It is known that carbonic acid Gas at a Low. Temperature partakes so nearly of the nature of a fluid that it May be poured out of one vessel into another it rises at the temperature at it is exhaled from the lungs but its ten Dency is towards the soar or the bed of the Slee per in cold and unventilated rooms. At Hamburg the alarm of cholera at night in some parts of the City was so great that on some occasions Many refused logo to they should be attacked unawares in their sleep. Sitting up they probably kept their stoves or of Chi fires burning for the Sake of warmth and that warmth giving the expansion to any deleterious gases present which promote their dilution in the atmosphere the Means of safety were thus unconsciously assured. At Sierra Leorie the native s hive a practice in the sickly season of keeping fires constantly burning in their huts at night assigning that the fires kept away the evil spirits to which in their ignorance they attribute fever and ague. Lat Terly europeans have begun to adopt the same practice and those who have tried it assert that they have now entire immunity from the tropical fevers to which they were formerly subject in the epidemics of the Middle Ages fires used to be lighted in the streets for the purification of the air and in the plague of London of Iff fires in the streets were Are at one time Kepi burning incessantly till extinguished by a Vio Lent storm or rain. Latterly trains ofgus powr although sound in principle must necessarily out of doors be on too Small a scale As measured against an Ocean of atmospheric air to produce any sensible effect. Within doors however the Case is different it is quite possible to heat a room sufficiently to produce a Rarefaction and consequent dilution of any Rha Ignaut gases it May contain and it is of course the air of , and that alone at which comes into immediate Contact with the lungs o a person the above is from the Westminster review and is no doubt perfectly Correct. It is also known that the heat body is about two degrees lower at night during than through the Day. This May also account for much sickness by people not being careful to keep on enough of clothing at hot weather to maintain the proper decree of heat necessary. In warm Southern climates a Fine net enveloping the bed like a curtain while it selves for a Mosquito bar also answers the Pur pose of a h Eal a preserver upon the principle of sir Humphrey Davy s safety lamp the ques Tio Irmay justly be asked is carbonic acid Gas naturally a cause of fevers cholera this no one can answer Wilh for n6 Ana Lysis of the atmosphere in places infected with disease has yet been Able to detect anything Peculiar i fit. Yet for All this experience and reason should not be lightly esteemed and such we hold to be of the article we have Amer. An anecdote of a Highland Soldier.
