THE VOLUNTEER COUNSEL.
A THRILLING STORY.
John Taylor was licensed, when n
youth of twenty-one, to practice nt tlio
bar. Ho was poor, but, well cducrttctl,
and possessed extraordinary genius. Ho
married a beauty who aflorward desert
ed him for another.
On tho Oth of April, 1810, tho court
house In Clarksvllle, Texas, was crowd
ed to overflowing. An exciting cso.
was to bo tried. Georgo Hopkins, a
wealthy planter, had offered a grosg In
sult to Mary Ellison, tho young nnd
beautiful wlfo of his overseer. Tho hus
band threatened to chastlso him for thu
outrago, when Hopkins went to Elli
son's houso and shot him In his own
door. Tho murderer was arrested, nnd
bailed to answer tlio charge. Tlio oc
currence produced great oxcllcmcnt,
nud Hopkins, in order to turn tho tldo
of popular indignation, had circulated
reports ngnlnst her character, nnd sho
had sued him for slander. Both suits
wero pending for murder nnd slander.
Tho' Interest beenmo deeper, when It
wns known that Ashloy and Pike, of
Arkansas, and S. S. Prentiss, of Now
Orleans, by enormous fees, had been
retained to defend Hopkins.
.'Hopkins was acquitted. Tho Texas,
lawyers' wero overwhelmed by their
opponents. It- was n fight of dwnrfs
Tlio slander stilt was for tho Oth, and
tlio throng of spectators grow in num
bers 03 In excitement. Public opinion
was setting In for Hopkins; his money
had procured witnesses who served his
powerful advocates. When tho slander
enso was called, Mary Ellson wns left
without nn nttorney nil hnd with
drawn. "Ilnvo you no counsel," inquired
Judge Mills, looking kindly on tho
"No,Blrj thoy hnvpdesorted mo, and
lam too poor to employ any moro"
replied tho beautiful Mary; bursting in
"In such a ctibo, will not somo chlvul
rous member of tho profession volun
teer?" said tho Judge, glancing around
Tho thirty lawyers wero silent,
"I will, your honor," said n voieo
from tho thickest part of tho crowd bo
hind tho bar.
At tho sound of tho voice many start
edIt was so unearthly, sweet, nnd
Tho first sensation was changed into
laughter when, n tall, gaunt, spectral
flguro elbowed his way through the
crowd, and placed hiinsolf within tho
bar. His clothes looked so shabby that
the court hesitated to lot tho caso pro
ceed under his management,
"Has your namo been entered on tho
rolls of tho Stato?" demanded tho
"It Is immaterial," answered tho
stranger, his thin, bloodless lips curling
up with n sneer. "Hero Is my license
from tho highest tribunal In America!"
FRIDAY,, JUNE 11,
nnd ho handed thojudgen broad parch
ment. Tho trlnl went on.
Ho suffered tho witnesses to tell their
own story,iand ho allowed tho defense
to lend olf. ABhlcy fipoko first, followed
by Plko nnd Prentiss. Tho latter
brought tlio houso lown Jn cheers, In
which tho jury Joined.
It was now tho Granger's tllrn. Ha
roso beford tho bnrj not behind h, and
8b near th'o wondering Jury that ho
might touch tho roremnn.with.hlji long,
bony linger, dlo proceeded to" tear to
pieced tho arguments, of, Ashloy,
which incited away'' at, his 'touch llko
frost beforq a jSunpeam. .Every ono
looked, surprised, .Anon ho camojto (ho
dazzil'rig Wit of'thbpoct-lawyerrikc.
Then tho curl on Ills Hp groV Sharper,
Ids smooth fuco began to kindle up, and
his eyes to open dim nnd dreary no
longer, but vivid as lightning, red as
flro-globcs, nnd glaring as tsvln meteors.
Tho wholo 6oul was In his cyo j tho full
heart streamed out of ids face. Then,
without bestowing an allusion to Pren
tiss, ho turned short around on tho per
jured witnesses of Hopkins, torq their
testimony into threads, nnd hurled in
their faces such terrible invectives that
nil trembled llko aspens, rind two of
them lied from tho court-house. Tho
excitement of tlio erowd wa3 becoming
tremendous. Their united llfo and soul
seemed to hang ifpon tho burning
tongue of a stranger, and ho inspired
them with tho power of his passions.
Ho seemed to have stolen nature's long
hidden secret of attraction. But his
greatest triumph was to, come.
Hi's eyes began to glance at, the assas
sin Hopkins, Us his' lean, taper-fingers
assumed the same direction. Ho hem
med tho wretch within it wnll of strong
ovidencu nnd Impregnnblo argument,
cutting olf all hopo of escape. Ho dug
beneath tho murderer's feot ditches of
dilemmas, and held up tho slanderer to
tlio scorn aud contempt of tho populace.
Having thus girt him nbout with a cir
cle of fire, ho stripped himself to the
work of maftsacro-
Ohl then It was a vision botli glori
ous mid dreadful to behold tho orator.
His actions became as impetuous as the
motion of an oak in a hurricane. His
voice beeaiiio a trumpet filled with
wild whirlpools, deafening tlio ears
with crushes of power, anil yet inter
mingled nil the while with a sweet
undersong of the softest cadence. His
forehead glowed like a heated furnace,
his countenance .was haggard, llko that
of a intttiiitL', and ever and anon ho Hung
his long bony arm on high, us if grasp
ing after thunderbolts.
Ho drew a plcturu of murder in such
appalling colors that, in comparison,
hell itself might seem beautiful; ho
painted tho slanderer so black that, tho
sun seemed dark at noonday, when
shining on such it monster. And then,
fixing both portraits on tho shrinking
Hopkins, fastened them thero forever.
Tho agitation, of tho audience amount
ed almost to madnes-j.
All ut once, thg speaker descended
from tho perilous height. His voico
walled out for tho murdered dead, and
living tho beautiful 'Mary, morojbeau-
tiful every moment as her tears.ilowcd
faster aud faster, till men wept and sob
bed llko children.
Ho closed by a strong exhortation to
tho Jury, anil through them to tho by
standers; tho panel', after they should
bring in a verdict- for tho plaintiff, not
to offer violenco to tho defendant, how
ever richly ho might deservo It In
other worth, "not to lynch tho villain,
but leave ItU punishment to God."
This was tho most artful trick of all
and calculated to insure vengeance.
Tho Jury rendered a verdict of fifty
thousand dollars; and tho night after
ward, Hopkins was taken out of his
bed by tho lynchers, and beaten almost
todtnth. As tho court adjourned, tho
stranger said :
"John Taylor will preach hero this
evening at early candle-light."
Ho did prcacli and tho houso was
crowded. 1 liavo listened to Clay, Web
stcr, and Calhoun to Dwight, B.iscom,
and Bcccher but never heard any

On Uolng Surety.
HENRY ward BEEC1IER.
Ought a man over to go surety for
another? Why not? It Is rt most
friendly net. If prudently dono, It may
bo of tho most eminent benefit tod nelgh
bor. It elves him tho benefit of your
good reputation when ho Is not known.
It lends him your credit whero his own
Is notflulllclont. It puts him in funds
which other wlso ho could not command.
Such service to a friend is generous, ami
sometimes oven noble. No better uso
can bo mado of one's monoy ,tian to
help a true friend. Wo nro comiriundcd
to remember thoso in bonds as (bound
with them. To bo sure, this was origin,
ally applied to bonds of n different
kind, bu t with not n wlilt moro propriety
than to pecuniary bonds. A man who,
by n few thousand dollars, can savo his
frleud, aud porhaps, his family, from
bankruptcy and want, could hardly
spend hjs money In n manner wldch,all
his llfo long, ho would remember with
moro satisfaction. .
But, thero nro certain moral and pru
dential considerations which should nl
w.iys bo borno in mind In going surety
for a friend. You should make up your
n Ind Aoto wucA property yoti hare, nnd
how much you are xolllimj to give away,
nbsolutcly, for that friend whom you
Indorse. For no blunder can bo worso
than to Indorsobn tho supposition that
you iclll not have to pay. Never indorse
without without saying jo yourself,
"This may como round upon inc. I
may liavo to pay It; and, if it cornea to
that, I um able and willing." Nino out
of ten of tho fatal mistakes made by
bondsmen ariso from taking tho oppo
slto courso to this. Thoy consider tho
act of indorsing a friend's paper as a
mere commercial form. "Thero Is no
risk. I shall not havo it to pay. Ho Is
abundantly nblo to tako caro or his pa
per. I shall help him without harm
ing myself, and ho Is n stingy man who
will not do that." This is tho calcula
tion on which n man binds himself to
pay n friend's debts in caso tho friend
can not pay them himself. But how do
theso things turn out ? Ono need not
go far to ascortain 1 Every vlllngo has
an illustration. Tho borrower was moro
involved than you suppose, or, perhaps,
than ho himself knew, nnd his creditors
closed on him nnd wound .him up, and
wero overjoyed to find such a good name
as yours on his paper. Or, tho sangulno
scheme on which ho had venturod,
which seemed sure of success, almost
without possibility of falluro, suddenly,
llko a loaded wagon, slipped ofla wheel
and upset into tho dirt I
Or, Just as every thing was at tho
point of success, your friend sickened
and could not look after his affalrs,omo
critical matter was neglected, or somo
dishonest person stepped in and crook
ed matters; your friend died, thocstato
went to executors' hands for settlement,
was badly managed, warped und
crooked, aud finally turned out Insol
vent. And what became of you ? Why, you
wero surety for tho full amount of wnat
you nro worth 1 In an hour you find
yourself confronted with a debt that
sweeps away your house, yonr farm,
your little sura In band, nntl leaves you
Just whero you began twenty-flvo years
ago, with this difference, that then you
had ouly yourself to provido for; and
now you lmvoawlfoand eight children.
Then you wero twenty-flvo yenrs old
nnd life wns all boforo you, and now you
nro fifty years old, nnd iifo pretty much
all behind you 1 You havo given away
your children's bread. You havo not
saved your friend, but havo ruined
yourself I Perhaps your friend had set
tled on his wlfo n small property. So
much tho better for her, if ho had. Of
courso she will dlvldo with you.since it
was to savo her husband, that you wero
ruined. But, if sho will not, (und hu
man naturo is mado up of shaky stuff,)
and her children go- to school, while
yours slay at home; and if thoy llvo in
n comfortable houso, pleasantly furnish
ed, whilo you aro hiring a few rooms In
tho cheapest quarter of the town, then I
suspect that you will chew tlio end of a
great many bitter reflections.
When it is too late, you will bo very
wlso. You will say to yourself, It may
be, "A man is n fool who signs fur any
larger sum than he can conveniently
pay." Amen, say 1 1
"Before a man puts his nntno down
on another man's paper, ho should ask
himself, Am I willing to give tills per-
Bon as much money as I sign for?"
Amen, say 1 1
"To sign n bond on tho supposition
that It Is n mere form, nnd that you will
havo nothing to pay, is to put one's
head into a fool's noose." Amen, again,
say 1 1
Thero is uo harm in signing for it
neighbor If you havo got tho property j
if you nro ablo to pay tho amount with
out harming your own household ; and
If you lovo tho man for whom you sign
enough to ho willing to wive him out
right tho sum covered by your Indorse
ment. Otherwise, to go surety for a
neighbor is n folly, u sin nud n shame.

letter-writer remarks of Mr. Greeley

A Goort .Sheep .jlorr.
Tho following transaction. Is an actual
fact, and occurred nemo yearsiigo in tho
Stato of Connecticut.
A lilnn in rather lndlirereiit 'clrcuin
stances, surrounded by a largo family,
boing entirely out ofmcat, had resource
to tho slicepfold or his neighbor, (a rich
farmer) for relief. Tho uoiglibor hav
ing a Hock, of shepp, did not perceive
ho hnd lost nn.v. until ono of the iliicst
in tlio flock, very lnrgo and fat, was
pitsslng niid counting his sheep, found
ho hnd lostBovcral. UnablO to' account
for'tiiis, extraordinary loss, ho, resolved
a fow ntghU after to watch. About
midnight ho observed an uncommon
disturbance; among tlio sheep,' by Uio
sudden appearance of a man dressed in
disguise. Curiosity, as well to'obscrvo
tho conduct of tho person as to find him
out, induced him to bo still. In tho
flock there was a ram with wboin, it
seems, tho man was lu tho habit of
conversing as If ho had been tlio actual
owner of tho sheep. "Well, Mr". Ram,"
says" tlio nocturnal sheep steJler. "I
rim como to buy another siifiip; havo
you any more lo sell?" Upon whici.
ho reiJled himself, as in person of tho
rani, "Yes I havo sheen to sell." Bv
1liis tlmo tlio owner ol tho slieep per
ceived lilm to bti ono or his neighbor.
"What will you tako for thatllargo fat
wetiicr?' savs tho nurehasdr. "Four
dollarsy''roplted Rahi. "That Is it
very high prico," says' tho mtth ; "but
as you nro so good as to wait qn mo for
tho pay, I think I will tako him."
"Well, Mr. Ram," continues the honest
sheep .buyer, "Let us seo how many
sheep I havo bought of you." "If I am
not, mistaken," says Mr. Ram, "this
makes tho fifth ; then went on to cast
up iho amount of the whole; and nftcr
giving Mr. Ram a polito invitation to
call on. him for hfs pay, and bidding
him good night, tho man led htm homo,
whilo tho, owner lay laughing at tho
novolty of tho scene, nshlthlv cratlflcd
as If lio had received ample pay for tho
whole. A, few nights afterwards, when
lib supposedjiis uolgiibor was, nearly
out.of mutton, iio caught tho yld ram
and tied n )iltlo bag under his neck, and
placed it piece of paper between his
horns, on which ho wroto In iargo let

tho w'hoio amount of the llvo slicen ex
actly us his neighbor had done', as be
fore related; ho then took tho ram to
his neighbor's, house, whero ho tied him
near ids door and then wen( homo.
When tho neighbor roso In tho morning
ho was not.n.itjtlo, surprised tq find a
sheep tied nt ills own door ; but It is be
yond words. to express his astonishment
when ho found it was tho old Ram with
whom he had Istely been deallug so
much in mutton, with his errand on his
forehead, and the amount of (ho five
sheep accurately madu out, as he had
done n few nights before in tho person

What the Coining; Girl Will Do.
Twenty years ago n young man who
had paid attention to o bright, sweet
girl for a long tlmo without 'making
'anything that was even n second cousin
to a proposal, was startled ono evening
by tho question, "Robert, do you want
to )narry mo?" Ho tried to evado tho
point by asking why sho put such a
question to lilm. "Because, If. you do
not want to marry mo you must stop
coining ,to seo me. No mocking-bird
around' th'o red-breast's ncstyouknow."
Robert took tho hint, nnd with a cool
good night, walked home. What should
ho'caro for n girl so rudoas that? Good
company as hers elsewhere. Ho would
Join thb club next day. Ho tried to
sleep, hut couldn't. Ho dldif't quite
like tho turn tilings had taken. Tho
figUre plngued him. If ho was a mock-Ing-blrd,wIio
was tho red-breast that ho
wns keeping away from such u fitting
partner? "At any rato, ono thing is
certain"; Edna is smart as sho is pret
ty," ho said to himself, "and sh6 means
business." The noxt morning Robert
went to the counting-room, whon pres
ently Joo Mason eaino lit and said, "I
tell you what It is, Bob,'you wero lucky
lu keeping out of tho club, I havojtist
paid another assessment of fifty dollars,
nnd, what is worso, I meet such expen
sive friends there that It costs moro than
I pan earn to keep it.up." "I was Just
thinking of Joining tho club," said Rob
ert. "It will bo it .cool flvo hundred a
year out of pocket, and precious littlo
satisfaction nnd no hqino feeling at
that," replied his friend,
jioneri nummeii n tune wucn leu in
himself. It was a very long day. Busi
ness had drugged. Everybody was pro
occupied, hurried, cross. Things went
wrong. Ho was glad to go hou.e, only
It wasn't homo. Ho took a book, but
found himself trying to read tho coals
in tho grqto nnd find tho figures on tho
wall Insteail of' th'o page, lio" threw
himself ou tlio lounge, but it was dread
fully dull. Ilq stood It for somo tlmo
and then put pu hishdt nud walked

ya engaged. Ho asked to liavo her

camu.down. At last sho appeared. Ho
arose from )ils seat and met her In tho
mlddlo of tlio. room, nnd strid, "Edna, I
havo como to-night ou buiues3. I'm
tired of being your mocking-bird, und
want to bo your red-breastt will you bo

Edna, her faoo suffused wlllt. blushes.
