DEAF MITII, Tho 'Celebrated Texan Spy. About two years after tho Texan revolution, a difficulty occurred between tho new government and a portion of tlio people, which threatened tho most serious consequences even tho blood' shed and horrors of a civil war. Btiof- ly, tho causo was this: Tho constitu tion had fixed tho city of Austin as tlio permanent capital, where tho public ar chives wcro to bo kept, with a rescrva tion, however, of a power in tlio Presi dent to order their temporary removal n caso of danger from tho inroad of a foroigu enemy, or a forco or a sudden insurrection. Conceiving that tho exception emer gency had arrived, as tho Camiitiches frequently committed outrages within sight of tho capitol itself.JIouston, who then resided at Washington, on tho Brazo.-J, dispatched nn order command- ng his subordinato functionaties to send tlio State Records to tho latter ilaco which ho declared to be, pro (em- pore, tlio seat of government. It is iraposksiblo to detcribo tho stor my excitement which tlio promulgation of ths Jiat laised in Austin. Tlio keep ers of hotels, boarding houses, groceries and faro batiks, wcro thunderstruck, maddened to frenzy; for tho mcasuro would bo a death-blow to tholr prosper ity In business, and accordingly they determined at onco to take tho necessa rysteps to avert tho danger, by oppos ing tho execution of Houston's man date. They called n meeting of tho cit izens and farmers of tlio circumjacent country, who wcro all more or less in terested in tlio question; and after ma ny flry speeches against tlio asserted tyranny of tho administration, it was unanimously resolved to prevent tho emoval of tho archives by open and armed resistance. To that end they or ganized n company of four hundred armed men, ono party of whom, roliov- ng tho other at regular pcriodi of duty should keep constant guard around tho Statu llouso until tlio period passed by. Tlio commander of this forco was ono Col. Morton, who had achieved consid erable renown in tho war for independ ence, and had Mill moro recently dis played his bravery in two des pcrato duels, in both of which ho cut his antagonists nearly to pieces with tho bowio knife. Indeed, from tlio notoriety of his character for rovengo or courage, It was thought that President Houston would rcuounco his purposo touching tlio archives as soon as ho should learn who was tho leader of tho opposition. Morton, ou his part, whoso vanity fully equalled hisporsonal prowess, en couraged and Justified tho prevailing opinion by his boastful threats. Ho sworo that If tho President did succeed in removing tho records by tho march of an overpowering forco, ho would then himself hunt him down llko a ti ger nnd shoot him with littio ceromony or stab him In his bed, or waylay him in his walks for recreation. Ho ovon wroto to tlio hero of San Jacinto to that effect. Tho latter replied Iiv a noto of laconic brevity: "If tho peoplo of Austin do not send tho archives, I shall certainly couioand tako them, and If Col. Morton can kill ino ho is welcome to my car cap." On tho reception of this answer tho guard was doubled around tho Stato House. Chosen sentlnels-wcro stationed along tho road leadlug to tho capitol, tho military paraded tho streets from mornlug till night, and select caucuses held permanent sessions, in tho city hall. In short, everything betokened n coming tempest, Ono day, whllo matters wcro in this precarioua condition, tlio caucus at tho city hall was surprised by tho sudden appearanco of a stranger, whoso modo of entering was as extraordinary as his looks nnd dress, no did not knock at tho closed door ho did not facet admls slou at all; but climbing unseen a small bushy-topped llvo oak, which grow bo sido thowall, leaped without sound or warning through a lofty window. IIo was clothed altogether in buckskln.car- ricd a long and very heavy riflo In his hand, woro at tho bottom of his left Bitspcnder n largo bowlo-knlfo, ond had in his bolt a couple of pistols half tho length of his gun. IIo was tall, straight ns an nrrow, active as n panther In his motion, with darkened complexion and luxuriant Jetty hair, with a sovcrclron llko countenance, that seemed never to havo known n smile, nnd eyes of In tense vivid black, wild and roiling.nnd piercing as tiio point of n dagger. His strango ndvent inspired a thrill of In voluntary fear, and many present un consciously grasped tho handles of their side-arms. "Who nro you that thus presumes to Intrude among gontlomon, without in vitation?" demanded Col. Morton, fo roclously essaying to cow down tho stranger with ids eyo. Tho Jailor returned his staro with compound interest, and laid his long bony finger on his Hp as a sign but of what, tho spectators could not imagine. "Who aro you ? Speak 1 or I will cut an answer out of your heart 1" shouted Morton, almost distracted with rago by tho cool, sneering gazo of tli'o other, who now removed Ills finger from his lip and laid it on tho hilt of his mon strous knli'o. Tho fiery colonel then drew his dug gor, and was in tho act of advancing upon tlio stranger, when several caught him and held him back, remonstrating. "Lot him alone, Morion, for God's sake. Do you not perceivo that is cra zy?" At that moment, Judgo Webb, n man of shrewd intellect and courteous man ners, stepped' forward and addressed tho intruder in a most respectful man ner "My good friend, Iprcsumo you havo made a mlstako in tho house. This is n privato meeting wliero nono but mem bers aro admitcd." The stranger did not appear to com prehend tho words, but ho could not fall to understand tho mild and depio catory manner. Ills rigid features ro laxcd, and moving to a table in tliocon tro of tho hall, whoro there wcro mato rials and implements of writing, ho seized a pen and traced n lino: "I am deaf." IIo then held it up before tho spectators, as a sort of natural apology for his own want of politeness. Judge Webb took tho paper and wroto a question: "Dear sir, will you bo so obliging ns to inform us what is your business with tho present meeting?" Tho other responded by delivering a lettor inscribed on tlio back, "To tho citizens of Austin." They broko tho seal aud read it aloud. It was from Houston, and showed tho usual torso brevity of his stylo: "JWlow Citizens, Though in error, and deceived by tho arts of traitors.

After tlio rending, tho deaf man wai ted a fow seconds, as If for reply, and then turned and was about to leavo tho hall when Col. Morton interposed and sternly beckoned him back to tho tablo Tho stranger obcycd,and Morton wrote: "You wero bravo enough to Insult mo by your threatening look ten minutes ago; nro you bravo enough now to givo mo satisfaction?" Tho stranger penned his reply : "I am at your service." Morton wroto again: "Who will bo your second Tho stranger rejoined : "I am toogen erous to seek an advantage, and too bravo to fear auy ou tho part of others, thcreforo I never need tho aid of a sec ond?" Morton penned: "Namo your terms.' Tlio stranger traced, without a mo ment's htsilution : "Time, sunset this evening; placo, tlio left bank of tho Colorado, opposlto Austin ; weapons, rltles; and distance, a hundred yards. Do not full to bo in timo!" IIo then took throo f.tcps across tho door, and disappeared through tlio win dow ns ho had entered. "What I" exclaimed Judgo Webb, Is it possible Colonel Morton, that you In tend to fight that man? IIo is a muto, if nota positive luanhic. Sucli a meet ing I fear will t-adly tarnish tlio lustro of your laurel.-'." "You aro mistaken," replied Morton with a smile; "that muto Is a hero, whoso f.unobtands In tlio records of n dozen battles, and half as many bloody duels' Besides ho Is tho favorlto emis sary and bo3om friend of Houston. If I have tho good fortune to kill him, I think It will tempt tho President to ro tract his vow against venturing any moro on tlio Hold of honor." "You know tho man thon. Who is ho? Who is ho?" nsked twenty voices together. "Deaf Smith," answered Morton, coolly. "Why. no, that cannot bo. Deaf Smith was slain nt San Jacinto," ro marked Judgo Webb. "There, again your honor is mistak en, "haid Morton. "Tlio story of Smith's death was u mero fiction, got up by Houston to s.ivo tho Itfo of his favorite from sworn vengeance of certnin Tex- aus,on whoso conduct ho had acted as a spy. I fathomed tho artifice twelve months since." "If what you say bo truo, you nro n madman yourselfl" oxclalmod Wobb "Deaf Smith was nover known to miss Ills mark. Ho has often brought down ravens In tholr most rapid illght, and killed Cunianchcs and Mexicans at a dlstanco of two hundred and fifty yards." "Say no more," answered Col, Mor ton, in tones of deep determination; "tho thing Is already settled. I havo already ogrced to meet him. Thcro can bo no disgrace In falling beforo such a shot, and if I succeed, rpy triumph will confer tlio greater glory 1" Such wii3 tho geuoral habit of thought and feeling prevalent throughout lox as at this period. Tow nrds evening it vast crowd ossein bled nt tho placo uppoiutcd to witness tho hostile meeting, ond so great was 23, 1870. COL. tho popular reckl&ssncss as to affairs of Iho sort, that numerous and consid erable sums wcro wagered on tho result At length tho red orb of tho summer sun touched tho curved rim of tha west ern horizon, covering It all with crim son and gold, and filling tho air witli n Hood of burning glory; and then tha two mortal antagonists, armed with long, ponderous rifles, took their sta tion, back to back, and nt tho prccon- corted signal tho waving of a whllo handkerchief walked steadily nnd slowly off In opposlto directions, count ing their step3 until each had measured fifty. They both completed tho given number nbout tho samo Instant, and then thoy wheeled, each to aim nnd firo when ho chose. As tho distance was great, botli pained for somo seconds- long enough for tho beholders to flash their eyes from ono to tho other and mark tho striking contrast betwixt them. Tho faco of Col. Morton was calm and smiling, but tho smilo It boro had a mosttnurderoiw ttu'titiing. On the contrary tho countenanco of Doaf Smith was stern and passionless ns ov er. Asido viowof his features might havo been mistaken for a prolllo dono in cast iron. This ono, too, was dressed in tlio richest cloth, and nnd tho other In smoke-tinted leather. But that mado no dlfferenco in Toxas then; for tho he roic wero nil considered peers tl-io class ot inferiors embraced nono but cowards. Presently two rifles exploded with simultaneous roars. Col. Morton gavo a prodigious bound upwards, and dropped to tho earth a corpse Deaf Smith stood erect, and immediately be gan to reload his rifle, and then having finished his task, ho hastened away into tho adjacent forest. Throo days afterwards, Gen. Houston accompanied by Deaf Smith and ten more men, appeared in Austin, and without further opposition removed tho stato papers. Tho history of the hero of tho forego ing anecdote was ono of tho most extra ordinary over known in tho West. IIo mado his advent in Tcxa3 nt an early period, ond continued to resido thoro uiitil his death, which happened somo few years ago; although ho had many warm porsonnl friends, no one could ov er ascertain either tlio land of his birth or a single gleam of his previous biog raphy. When ho was questioned on tho subject, ho laid his fingers on his lips; and if pressed moro urgently Ills browwrithed, aud his dark eyes seemed to shoot sparks of livid firo. IIo could writo with astonishing correctness and facility, considering his situation; and although denied tho exquisito pleasuro and priceless advantages of thosonso of hearing, nattiro had given him nmplo compensation by an oyo quick and far seeing as on eaglo's ond it smell Koon and jiici'o.liblo us that of a raven. IIo could discoycr objects moving miles away in tiio far-off prairie, when others could perceive nothing but earth and sky; and tlio rangers used to declare that ho could catch the sccntof a Mexi can or Indian nt as great n distanco as a buzzard could dislinguisii tho odor of a dead carcass. It was these qualities which fitted him so well for a spy, in which capacity lie rendered iuvalunblo service to Hous ton's army during tho war of indepen dence. IIo always went nlono, nnd gen erally obtained tho information desired His habits in privato life wero equally singular. Ho could never bo persuaded to live under tho roof of n houso, or even to close a tent cloth. Wrapped in his blanket ho loved to lio under tho bluo canopy of puro ether, and count tho stars, or gazo with a yearning look nt tlio melancholy moon. When not employed as a spy or a guide, ho subsis ted by hunting, being often absent on solitary excursions for weeks or even months together In tlio wilderness. IIo was a genuine son of nature, a grown up child of tho woods and prairie, which ho worshiped with a sort of Pagan ado ration. Excluded by his infirmities from cordial fellowship witli his kind, ho mado tho inanlmato things of earth Ills friends, and entered by tlio heart's own adoption into brotherhood with tho luminaries of heaven. Whorover thcro was land or water, barren moun tains or tangled brakes of wild waving cane, thcro was Deaf Smith's liome,and thero ho was happy; but in tho streets of'grcat cities, in nil tho great thoroughfare- if men, whorover thero was flat tery or fawning, baso cunning orciavcn fear, thcro was Deaf Smithnu alien and exile. Strango soul I ho hath departed on tho long Journey, away among thoso high bright btars which wero his night lamps;' and ho has cither bolvcd or ceased to ponder tho deep mystery of tho magic word "life." IIo Is dead; thercforolet his errors rest In oblivion, and his virtues bo remombored with hope. LlTTLH AND NOTHINQ Ol' IT. Old Tlohnny McQlll resided, during tho war, in East Tennossee. Guerrillas, representing both parties, kept it so warm in that forsaken region that it was dangerous to belong to cither side. McGIU had, In trying to rido both horses, gotten soveral boot Jacklngs from first tho rebels and then tho Yan kees. As all guerillas dressed alike, ho mado several mlstnkesin trying to pacs for either Union or Southern, ns ho thought would suit tho crowd. At last ho was overtaken by a party whoso pol ities ho couldn't oven gucts at, and tho following dialogue ensued : "Sir, aro you a Union man?" "No, sir," responded McGIU. "Aro you a rebel then ?" "No sir, I nm not a rebel either." "Then what In tho dovll'ti name, nro you V" roared tho captain. "Well, sir," hesitated McGIU, "to tell tho real truth, I'm nothing nnd but d-d llttloof that 1" General Spinner Is sick.

To begin wllh tho lady Her luckB wcro strained upward over nn Immense cushion that sat llko an Incubus on her head, and plastered over with pomat um and then sprinkled with a shower of white powder. Tho height of this tower was somewhat over n foot. Ono single white- rosebud lay on lis top, llko an eagle in n haystack. Over her neck and bosom was folded a laco handker chief, fastened in front with n bosom pin rather larger than n copper cent. containing her grandfather's inlnlaturo set in virgin gold. Her airy form was braced up In a satin dress, tho sleeves as tight as tho natural skin of tho arm, with a waist formed by a bodice, worn outside, whonco tho skirts Unwed ofT, und wero distended at tho top by an amplo hoop. Shous of wlilto kid, with peaked toes, and heels of two or throo Inches elevation, enclosed her feet and glittered with spangles, as her llttlo peual members peeped curiously out. Now for tho swnin. His hair was sleek ed back and plentifully bofloworoil. whllo his qucuo projected llko a liandlo to a skillet. His coat was a sky-bluo silk lined with yellow; his long vest of satin, embroidered with gold laco; his breeches or the samo materia', and tied at tho knees with pink ribbons. Whito silk stockings nnd pumps, with laces and tics of tho samo hue, completed the habiliments of Ids nether limbs. Lico ruilles clustered around his wrist, nnd a portentous frill, worked in correspond ence, and bearing tho miniature of his beloved, finished his truly genteol ap pearanco. Mothers Speak Kindly'. Chil dren catch words quicker than parrots, and it is a much moro mischievous habit. When mothers set tho example, you will scarcely hear a pleasant word among tho children in their plays with each other. Yet tho discipline of such a family is always weak and irregular. Tho children expect Just so much scold ing beroro they do anything thoy nro bid, whllo in many a homo, whero tho low, firm tono of tho mother or tho do eided look of her steady eyo Is law, they never think of disobedience, cith er in or out of sight. O, mother, it is worth a great deal to cultivate that "excellent thing in woman" a low, sweet voice, if you aro over so much tried by tho mischievous or wilful pranks of tho little ones, speak low. It will bo a great help to you to even try to bo patient aud cheerful, ir you can not succeed. Auger makes you wretch ed, and your children also. Impatient, angry tones never did tho heart good, but plenty ol evil. Read what Solom on says of them, and remember ho wroto with an inspired pen. You can not havo tho excuso for them that they lighten your burdens any; they uiako them only ten times heavier. For your own, ns well ns for your children's sake. learn to speak low. They will remem ber that tono when your head is under tlio willows. So, too, will they remem ber a harsh and angry tone. Which legacy will you leavo to your children? A few daysslneo a eolorcd lad outer edadrug storoln Portland with what ho described as an "awful fooling in de stomach, Jest liko it wor full of fish hooks and anglo worms," and demand ed a "setter powder," as ho had been ndvl-ed that would give relief. Accord ingly tlieseidlitz powders wero dissolv ed in scparato glasses, as usual, and placed beforo him, with instructions to pour one into tho other and drink whllo effervescing. But tho liable youth did nothing or tho sort. Instead of follow ing tlio directions, ho hastily drank off tho contents of ono glass and immedi ately swallowed tlio other. Tiio effect may bo Imagined, but not described. The efrervcsccnco which should havo taken place in tlio glass beforo it was drank, took placo in tho bewildered darkoy's stomach, sending streams of tho frothy liquid from his mouth, nose, oyes and ears. As soon as tho poor fellow could recover breath, ho cried out In frightened tones : "My stomach has busted ; I can't llvo a minute!" In a few moments however, ho felt better, and turning to depart, ho said : "Dot stuff may work well nuf on do whito tra-sh, but Its shuro death on a nigger." A Beautiful Sentiment. In Au guslln Daly's great play "Under tho Gaslight" Laura Courtlund utters thc60 beautiful sentiments: 'Let tho woman you look upon bo wise or vnln, beautiful or homely, ricli or poor, slio has but ono thing sho can givo or refuse her heart. Her beauty, her wit, her accomplishments, sho may sell to you but hor lovo is tho treasuro without monoy and without prico. Sho only asks in return that when you look upon her, your eyes shall speak a muto devotion; that when you address hor, your volco shall be gentle, loving nnd kind. That you shall not desplso her because sho cannot understand, all at onco, your vigorous thoughts and am bitlous plans, for when mlsfortuno and ovil havo dofeated your greatest pur posesher lovo remains to console you. You look upon tho trees for strength and grandeur ; do not desplso tho dow ers becauso their fragranco is all they havo to give. Remember, lovo Is all that a woman can givo but It Is the only earthly thing which God permits us to carry beyond tlio grave." Walk On I A traveler bound to a certain village, passing by Esoji's, thus addressed him : "Can you tell mo how long it will taku mo to reach B ?" "Walk on," was tho laconic reply, Tho traveler, not comprehending this answer, repeated his question. Again tho reply was: "Walk on." Disgusted with his manner, tho trav eler did walk on, when suddenly AUop exclaimed: "You will reach B In two hours." "And pray," retaliated tho wanderer, "why did you not tell mo beforo?" "How could I tell you beforo I had seen your rato of walking?" returned Kiop. HATES OF ADYHKT1SIN0.

Tlio Pony that turned the Water on. An almost unparalleled clrcumstauco was noticed at Mulrhall, near West Col der. During tho great heat that pre vailed In tho summer, an Iceland pony tho property or Mr. John Wnddell, contractor, was, for a timo, left to lta own free will during tho temporary nb senco of Its driver. Tlio pony, which had been driven for n considerable dis tance, and wasBoemlngly nclualed by a craving for water, was observed by tho proprietor of Mulrhall, and others who chanced to ho In tho vicinity, to delib erately walk a distance of ftiil fifty yards, mid with his teeth turn tho cock of n wator-plpo projecting- out or tho road embankment, supply Itself with a draught of tho rcrrcshlng beverage, re adjust tho cock and return to tlio posi tion in which it was left. This caso is not only paralleled, but surpassed by ono that occurred In Leeds In 1701. A gentleman's horso was rogulaily turned Into a field whero thero was n pump, tho water of which never railed. The horso observed how tho pump worked, mid ut last took to pumping for himself thus saving tho groom tho. trouble of providing him witlt water. His modo of procedure was to tako tho liandlo of iho pump between his tectii nnd pump away until tho trough was full. Mr. Weir has given us n llfo-llko picture of (his incident, which is, undoubtedly, ono of the most curious in nil tho histo ry of animal intelligence. Clever Ani mate. A risli Story. Wo met a boy on tho street recently, and without tho ceremony of asking our namo, ho exclaimed ; "You Just orter been down to tho river a while ago!" "Why?" wo inquired. "Because a nigger was In thero swim ming, and a big cat-fish camo up behind him and swallowed both of his feet and went swimming along on top of tho wa ter with him, nnd they camo up behind another big fish, and tho nigger swal lowed his tall, and tho nigger and two fish went swimming about 1" "Well, then, what?" wo asked. "Why, after n while tho nigger swal lowed his fish, and tho other fish swal lowed tho nigger, and that's tho last I saw or them." "Sonny," said we, with feelings of alarm for tho boy, "you aro in a fair way to becomo tho editor of n paper;" and wo left him. A Mad Husband. Tho Detroit Free Press relates a clover Incident which occurred on tho return of an ex cursion party from a city, not a thou sand miles ftom that place. Soon after tho boat left Toledo tho steward was approached by an excited individual, who asked him if ho was tho captain. The steward replied in tho negative, nt tho same timo giving his innk. "Hnvo you tho power to put n man out of tho cabin?" Inquired the strang er. "Well, yes, ifho's disorderly I have," replied tlio steward. " Well, sir, look in hero, and seo thcro will you," Bald tho stranger, leading l ho official around to the door. The i-tewnrd looked In upon tho motley roup, nnd replied that ho saw nothing out or tho way. "You don't, oil V Don't you see that man ?" "Well, yes," replied tho blowanl, but what of that? hasn't a follow n right to embraco his wire?" 'That's Just what I wait you to run him out for," replied tho stranger, dancing around, "that's my wife, and I've stood il so long that I've got mad!" A Trick of the Printer. A ro- cent accident In an English printing olllco holds out a hopo for Chicago. A scamp gained access to tho Clarendon Printing Olllco when tho forms for a now edition of tlio prayor-book of the Church of Etiglnud woro nearly ready for the press, nnd substituted k for v In tho word "llvo" in thomarrlago wr- vlco whero it reads that both promise to love, honor, Ac, "so long as yo both shall llvo," thus making tho last woul "llko." Tho wholo edition was pub lished beroro tho error was discovered; and as tho book with such a regulation or marrlago would bo of no service in Englnnd, it is now proposed to sond tho edition to Chicago, und distribute. It thero at a normal price. It is thought that nil tho prayers In tho book nro needed there, whllo tho chango In thu text of tho marrlago Bcrvlco will differ but littio from tho custom of the place. Adam Defined. Thoro must havo been somo curious specimens of Scot tlsh humor brought out at tho exam ination or catechizing by ministers of tho tlock beroro tho administration of tho communion. Thus, with roferonco to human naturo beroro tho fall, a ninu wos osked : "What kind of a man was Adam?" "Oh.Jistllkolthcr folk," I'ho minister Insisted on having n moro special description or tho first man, and pressed formoro explanation. "Weel," said tho catechumen, "ho was Just llko Joo Simpson, tho horso eouper." "How so?" asked tho minister. "Weel, naebody gotonytlilng by him and many lost." ' During a revival in a country town tho minister officiating approached u young man with tlio question: "My young friend, havo you prayed for tho salvation of your soul?" "No, sir," answered tho youth, with u penitent tono. "Do you not deslro to ofi'er thanks for tho mercies you havo receiv ed by divine favor?" "Yes; but 1 don't know how," hesitatingly answer ed the youth. "But you can repeat tlio publican's prayer, can't you?" asked tho minister. "No, blr," was tho em phatic responso; "I'm a Democrat, and d i tho Republicans." Since tho year 180;), ouo hundred and five missionaries havo died In the for eign field. Of tho number 62 wero males, aud 63 wero females.
