INTERESTING EXTRACTS, from lboitt..we•workr-ma.euholliti: M'Culluch's Tama .RaNgtit." CAPTAIN BEN ArC lILLOCII.-=-Relll CD. 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. fused a greet many because their horses would/not do for out service!' Our horse was then inspected, and being pronounced a good howl!' ate were iranieditindy made a “Tatuts Ranger.' Capt. Wentz loch bad just come in from a scout to wards Linares, and a detachment of his I company had been left at Reynosa, under the command Of Lieut. and — it was expected that we would move up to Reynosa in a few days. ANECDOTE or_Oss. Tsxmat..--;.Cfallinfr on the commanding general sooty_ after our 'recovery, to ascertain the chanCei of trans portation, he remarked, after saint pleas , 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 The other was from an Irish Woman, who wanted to know her 'son Mike was kil led, as she had not heard from him since the late battles. We feel sure that such letters would not have received attention al lfashington, but both of them were an swered by the general, carrying out the maxim that nothing is beneath the atten tion of a great man; and we left him, impressed with the great goodness of his heart. 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 "buenoa dins ' as we reached the bank ; when a' young Ranger. celebrated for his gallantry. taking a jar from one of the girls tilled it for her and placed it on her head; thanking him for his kindness with a look of modesty, she took his hand and kisied TAKINO IT COOLLY.—firthe afternoon a heavy rain was seen coming up.-and hur- “FPIARLESS AND FREt.” 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= ped in their blankets, and had sought the 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 fool." '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. "Well, that betas.. sue," said his mess. mate, bursting into a loud laugh, in which all heartily joined; "whoever would have thought of that way to keep dry." IT'S NOTHING WHEN YOU OILT TIED TO 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 cloud'to roar the deep blue of 'the bound less sky, and the inoon's_bAht orb, like wine vast oilier shield - king upon the quiet scene. It chanced tterwe bad spread our blanket down by the side of one of our messmates, who was a veteran of the , Tez. as wars. Major IL was one of the first who emigrated from Kentucky to Texas. He had commanded a eoMpany et San .la' cinto ; fought through the Federal war, was Lieutenanktokinel at the " Parbon fight," and now, with the usuniking modes ty and unambitious seal of a true Tulsa, had; when hit country needed him services,' come out at her call. as a shoji's' private in a ranging corps. ..

It happened that we Were provided with a water-proof cloth, Which, upon this owe mien, wer prepaid to spread over both - the Major and Ourself. to keep off the heavy dews. The Major readily accepted our propoeition, and we "spooned" •up togeths er as affectionately as . possible. About • midnight we were awakened by a tension dous thunder peal, and found that :Lowrie had bees brewing during our 'leapt itie sky was 'as black aa ink. and the roin.com -ing-downin-tarrennvireihele-aurlieint under the water-proof, and were piaiisty engaged - in praying for those poor fellows who were exposed to the fury 'of the storm, without any Shelter whatever whole, we suddenly - felt a - tivulet cemmence its meandering' under die very spot where our blankets were spread. The"windows of heaven were opened," and the flood continued to rise higher and higher. The under blanket was now completely saturated, and the water still continued to rise. We discovered that we were lying in a little gully which was tepidly , fillihg, but bore our affliction as quietly, as pout , ble, and without murmuring, being asha- I med to grumble 'while the Major slept Co soundly.

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 will sometimes see a college graduate who cannot write a page ofgood English, nor even spell well such English as he can write. 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." A NAPOLEONIC ANECDOTI. 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 wither, It7Wits not until it was out of my hinds 'that I thought - df what I had done. I hastened back to the spot where I had 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 sing horticulture. . -Natoli:on now-jail--his-debt, Ast- it"may be presumed. mignifiCently ; made him ac cept three 'hundred thousand francs as a reimbursement for the thirty, thousand tent the subaltern of artillery; and, besides, • "itidi'tdimisist general of the erown, with a tislitry'of thirty thou sand francs.

I would give, for my children's sake alone, all I have, (and he spoke not without rea son,) if Kentucky had been, as New York now he is—free." 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, spawn." They are time-servers at home, anti abroad.—Kenlucky Exam. COOL, VERY.—The Boston Bee is res ponsible.for the following story,—as rich 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 man— "Will you take a cigar, sir?" "NV-a-all, I don't mind if ldew," was the reply. 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, remarking—, "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 : EPAAN. 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 ! He who is always to he waited- for, Is indolent, neglectful, proud, or all together. Ile, who can rail at benevolence, has set his heel on the neck of religion.

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 ty Convention, he indirectly supports the principles as well as the candidate of the opposition—deserts the political erred of his party, and perpetrates treason to its' principles. 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 ns the idol" of the party. Notloubt Vindex has a great antipathy ill surly heallienish adoration, "If the decisions of the Cowin-' 1 ty Convention are not to be reeognizeo, l we May as well abandon all party organi.. zation, and at once acknowledge that we contend not for principle, but men, V index, withoutenumerating the reasons why he could not "conscientiously" sup. port Mr. Sadler, for Senator, makes an ef fort to jump over and clear himself of the difficulty, by asking us, "how dare we run.= 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 TWO DOLLAIN PER ANNUM 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. We are no apologist for those Whigs- Who did not supper[ our excellent cattd't-' date for Comity Treasurer.
