ing. we met Mr. Kendall, of the Picayune,
who introduced us to Capt. Benjamin M'-
Culloch, the celebrated' partisan scout.—
Captain M'Culloch is a man of rather del
icate frame, of about rive feet ten inches
in height, with light hair and complexion.
His features are regular andpleasing, tho'
from long exposure on the frontier, they
hate a weather-beaten cast. His quick
and bright blue eye, with a mouth of thin
compressed lips, indicate the cool, calculer
flog, as well as the brave andclaring anal.
gy of the man. Being told that we were
antious to join his company,after running
his eye over us, he asked. "Have you a
good horse, sir? for," said he, al have re.

would/not do for out service!' Our horse

Reynosa in a few days.
ANECDOTE or_Oss. Tsxmat..--;.Cfallinfr
on the commanding general sooty_ after our
'recovery, to ascertain the chanCei of trans

ant conversation, that he was perfectly de
luged with letters, and that much of his
time was occupied in making
"And, sir," said General Tayior,' smiling
as he handed us two letters, ato show you
the diversity of subjects I RIO called upon
to respond to. you may look at ' these."
One of the !anent was from a boy, (canteen
years of age, giving a' sort of history of
himself and family, and who desired to en ,
list in the service, and had written to the
general to ask his advice on the Subject i

wanted to know her 'son Mike was

the late battles. We feel sure that such
letters would not have received attention

maxim that nothing is beneath the atten

impressed with the great goodness of his
MEXICAN GITILS.—Just before day, the
next morning, an alarm was given, which
proved to be false, but which had assem
bled all our men to quarters, and as it was
intended that we should hare an early
start, the men were ordered to got break
fast. Notwithstanding that the night had
passed off quietly, yet it was not without
an attempt to take us prisoners ; for the
alealde had ridden off to Rancho El Toro,
and tried all his powers of persuasion to
make the rancheros rise against us, but
their fears of "los Texanos" could not be
overcome, or else we might have enjoyed
some sport. As we rode down to the riv
er bank to water our horses, we met the
young girls carrying off jars, who were
also going after water. One or,two were
rather pretty, and very smilingly bid .us

when a' young Ranger. celebrated for his
gallantry. taking a jar from one of the girls

TAKINO IT COOLLY.—firthe afternoon a
heavy rain was seen coming up.-and hur-
tied preparations were made to preserve
our arms from the wet. A young Ranger
was seen taking ofl his clothes, which he,
carefully rolled up in his blanket, and pla
cing them at the foot of a tree, covered
the whole with his saddle, when the rain
commenced falling in torrents: Ile stood
out in its midst, with perfect indifference,
while the rest of his comrades were wrap=

shelter of the trees from the storm.
"Whatare you doing Out there, Harry?"
said one of his messmates.
"Taking a shower•bath," said Harry.
"Why your clothes will all get wet,you
'No they won't, either," said Harry,
"for they are wrapped up in my blanket."
"And where is your blanket ?"
""Why under my saddle, snug enough !"
said Harry, with a knowing look.

all heartily joined; "whoever would have
thought of that way to keep dry."
rr.—The guard was posted, and as we
spreiid our blankets down that night, after
the severe day's travel, we eongratulated
each other on the pleasant night we would
pass after all our fatigue. ' In truth it was
a peerless night; there was not a single

Ix smi OUT OF PLACE,—Talleyrand once
said that the art of puling men in their
proper places, was perbips the first in the
science of government. We do not always
succeed ; sometimes we send to Congress
whom we ought to seal to the State Pri
son ; and place inert or the bench who
ought to be set before he bar; men are
seen laboriously thumping the cushion
who ought to be thump* the anvil. You

A country surgeon, who was bald, was
on a visit at a friend's souse, whose ser
vant wore a wig. Altar bantering him a
considerable time, the Doctor said, *You
see how bald I am, and yet I don't wear a
wig." To which the servant •replied,—
*True, sir; but an empty barn requires
no thatch."
Napoleon sometimes told interesting
tales of his early career. One of those,
if true, shows how near the world was to
the loss of an Emperor: After the siege
orroulon, which his panegyrist regards
as the first step to his good fortune, he re ,
turned to Paris, apparently in the worst ;
possible mood for adventure. Ile was at
this period suffering front illness. His
mother, too, had just communicated to him
the discomforts of her position. She had
been just obliged to fly from Corsica,
where the people were in a state of insure
rection, and she was then at Marseilles
without any means of subsistence. Na
poleon had nothing remaining but an as-,
signet of one hundred sous, his pay being
in rear. "In this state of dejection I went
out," said he, "as if urged to suicide by an
animal instinct. and walked along the
quays, feelings my weakness, but unable
to conquer it. In a few more moments I
should have thrown myself in the water,
when I ran against an individual dressed
like a simple mechanic, and who, recog:
. .
I ming me, threw himself on my neck,
and cried, "Is ft you Napoleon What
joy to see you again !" It was Damasis,
a former comrade of mine in the artillery
regiment. Ile had emigrated,'and had re
turned to Prance in disguise to see his too
! ther. He was about to go, when, stop
! ping, be said, "What is the matter? You
tot' murk gtad to see me; What ntis.;
fortune threatens you? You look to me
ke a madman about to kill himself !"
This direct appeal awoke Napoleon's
feelings, indite told him everything. "Is
that all!" said he, unbuttoning his coarse
waistcoat, and detaching a belt, he added,
"here are.thirty thousand francs in gold ;
pike,. them, and. save your mother." "I
cannot," said Napoleon, "explain to my
sel(my motives for so doing, but I seized
the gold al if by a Convulsive movement,
and ran like a madman to send it to my

hinds 'that I thought - df what I had done.

ItifiTtaitillie, but he w a s no hinger there.
Foteevend'days I went out in the morn
ing, returning not until evening, searching
everyplace where I hoped to find him."
The end of The romance is as eccentric
as the'beginning. For fifteen years Napo-
loon saw leo more of his creditor. At the
end of that time he discovered him, and
asked him, "why he had not applied to
the tniperor?".. The answer was that he
had no becessity for the money, but was
afraid of being compelled. to quit his re
'tirement, where he lived happily practi

The subject was dropped. The mise
rable caitiff started new topics, and tried
hard, we learn, to recover lost ground.—
Hs failed, of course. Every planter felt
contempt for him, and one went so far as
to show it. John Randolph expressed the
Southern feeling, when describing this
class' of Northern men, as •Spawn, sir,

COOL, VERY.—The Boston Bee is res

an instance of verdancy as we have met
lately. A gentleman from the country,
says that paper, now stopping at one of
our hotels, entered into conversation with
oda of our boarders, asking questions about
the Fair at Quincy Hall, &c.; after some
minutes' conversation, the boarder drew
out his cigar case and asked the country
"Will you take a cigar, sir?"
"NV-a-all, I don't mind if ldew," was the
The cigar was passed to him, and, also,
one which the boarder was smoking, lilt
the purpose of "giving him a light." Ile
carefully placed the cigar first harried to
him in his pocket, took his knife and cut
off that end of the lighted oue which had
been in the mouth of his generous friend,
and commenced smoking the remainder,
"It ar'n't often that a man from the coun
try runs afoul of so clever a feller, in the
city as you are."
LOGAN'S LAST.--.The wits about town
are amused by the following impromptu,
perpetrated by "old Logan," the other night
in Louisville. Ott going on the stage in a
dress which precluded the possibility of
his carrying his watch, he requested a well
known beauty in the green room to wear
the chronometer for the evening. When
she returned it to him, it was found to have
stopped from the moment she took charge
of it. The last line displays a most deli
cate fancy :
My watch, my lovely friend, you say,
"Stopt on your breast,"—you're vex'd, I see
The trinket on your bosom lay,
And held as breath in cuing !

Ms. Earfon :—Tho articht which appeared In:
the'i oldie 22d wilt, has called forth a bouts
bootie reply, from an individual who signs himself
"Vinifatailkipmlp could more appropriately have
signed hinting? -flornarnires Furrow.'` His cont
munication is altogether a compound of en-onions
doetrinr and tallarions reasoning, such as, I venture
to say, no true and honeAt Whig' will endorse.—
He term to be thoroughly impressed with the
idea, that our County Contentions hate become
the lint-beds of corruption, of Mei—that he is no
longer "hound to worship the idols it sets
up for us," and "that it is not treason to
the principles of the party, to withhold his
support from those idols.•"Phat this has
been the practice of the County Conven
tions, we arc hound to believe from the as
sertion of Vindex, and he is endeavoring
to enlighten us Whigs of the "darkened
optics," with his revelations upon this
subject. Verily, the Joe Smiths are not
all dead yet ! Now, we think it is evi l
dent to every candid mind, that when Vin- i
ilex permits his personal feelings and pre.
judiees to induce him to withhold his sup.'
port from die settled candidate of the party,!
and then deliberately casts his vote for
some "idol" not recognized by the Coun

principles as well as the candidate of the
opposition—deserts the political erred of
his party, and perpetrates treason to its'
It is apparent that the aspiring Vindex '
does not approve of the plan adopted by
the AVliigs of this County. in the selection
of candidates to lily the various offices, but
that lie prefers the existence of the imic
, pendent spstem, so as to avoid the neces- ,
tiny of his being "set up and w orshipped

sure liiinfor haviug exercised a constitutional ,
prerogative!" Perhaps he forgot, when 1
pouring out his vials of wrath, that, while
the Constitution grants him the right or I
privilege of voting "as secineth most meet
to him," it also extends to us the "consti
tutional preroptive" offreeilont of speech. i
Yes, Vindex, it is a privilege that we
enjoy, and a glorious one too, of being per.
witted to investigate the course and policy
of persons and parties, and to expose, if
needs he, their selfishness, duplicity, and
treachery. And it was in the "exercise of i
this constitutional prerogative," that we I
called the attention of the Whigs of the
County, to the reprehensible course pursu
ed by sonic prtyessed Whigs, (to defeat,
if possible, the Whig candidate for Sena
tor,) in order, that the puerility of their
effort, on this occasion, might have a salu
tary effect upon those having slight per
sonal objections to the Candidates, and to
induce them to sacrifice a little, rather than
that the interests of the party should be , in•
! juriously affected. Professed Whigs, and
only such as the communication of Vindex
—one of them—fully proves. The tenor
of his whole article shows . conclusively,
I that, with him, the principles of the party
are subordinate to private prejudice—that
it no longer measures that he advocates
but men—that it is no longer a question
i_invOlving the great interests of the country,
resulting from a course of policy, winch,
as Whip, we believe efficient and beneti
i eisli but of subserviency w that iutoleraut
spirit, which is but the bantling of a selfish
desire, or an ungratified prgiudice. Hence
it is, that tee "probed a %venil" as he just
ly admits, and it makes him writhe - id his •
agony. Perhaps it was an old woundthat
had not yet perfeetly healed,, and which.
the Whig lancet of truth and justice caused
to bleed afresh. Yes, much rather would
he have their dereliction pass "unnoticed,"
than to !laic seen it exposed, and held up
to the gaze of the honest portion of the
party. , Sometimes "old documents taro
ugly things," and per haps he had this idea
before him, when he wished their "devim.'
ation from the ticket to pass unnoticed."
That an ardent attachment to the Whig
party and its principles, is calculated i
make slaves ()firemen, is a new ides that
has suddenly emanated from the , brains of
Vindex ; and so powerful is the idipteit
siert it has made upon him, that, at the
very thought of it, he already imagines he
hears the clanking of the chains, that are
to bind him in perpetual servitude. Can
ony man, possessing one ounce of good
sense, for a moment entertain audit a gross
absurdity ? No, it is but a subterfuge that
Vindex has had to resort to, in the support"
of a desperate e3IISC rich scintillation'
of his own brilliant imagination.
