"Forward the Mule Brigade,"
"Charge for the Reba" they neighed;

"Forward the Mule Brigade!"

Not when the long ears felt
All their hopes sundered;
Theirs riot to make reply;
Theirs not to reason why;
Theirs but to make theta fly,
On tto the Georgia troops,
Broke the two hundred.
Mules to the right of them.
Mules to the left of them,'
Mules behind them.
Pawed, neighed, and thuludered.
Breaking their own confirm,
Breaking through LongstrOt's lines.
Into Abe Georgia troops

Wild all their oyes did glare,
Whisked all ; their tails in air.
Scatt'ring the chivalry there,
• While all the world wondered:
Not a mule back bestraddled,
Yet how they all skedaddled;

Scattered and sundered,

Fawed, neighed,-and thundered
Followed by hoof and head,

Back from an "ass's jaw,"

When can their glory fade ?

All the world wondered.
Boner the charge they made,

ENTRAPPING A. MURDERER.
A, SPECULATOR'S STORY
. In the yea': 1863 I went to the Red River
country with a view of speculation in horses,
lands, or anything that might give promise of
profitable return for a cash investment. Of
-course I carried a good deal of money with me,
but knoviing I was going among ,a wild, lawless
class, of every grade and coldr—among half
civilized Indians, negroes, gamblers, thieves,
robbers, murderers and assassins, with perhaPs
a few settlers, of some claim to honor and hon
esty, if they' could be sifted out from the mug
—1 thought it the safest plan not to seem well
off- in this world's goods. ACcordingly I seen
-red my money in a belt about my body, put (ni
a very Coarse, rough \ dress, which, by intention
al carelessness, soonjhad a very mean, slovenly
appearance, and allowed my hair and beard to
manage matters 'their own way, without any
troublesome interference of razor or comb.
Thus prepared, and armed with two revokers
and abowie-knife, I passed over some danger
ous territory in comparative safety; and flatter
edmyself that micuite guessed my riches through
my apparent poverty.
Intact, on two occasions, I began to think it
might have been to my advantage to have look
ed a - little more respectable. The 'first of these:
was when, in traveling through the Choctaw,
nation, I found a drove of horses that pleased
me very much, and was told by the owner, in
reply to my question-as to what he would take
a head for the entire lot, that he was not iu the
habit of naming his price to every wandering
beggar that choose to satisfy his idle curiosity.
I was disposed at first to put- on some dignity
and get indignant, but concluded-, afters care
fill survey of my person that the man had good
Cause for speaking as he did, and so merely as
sured. him that I knew an individual who wished
to bpy horses, if lie could get them at a fair
price. •The horse owner, howev_er, was not
disposed to", believe my statement, and so I
passed him by, with the resolve that if nothing
better turned up I would give him another call
under more advantageous appearances. As the
second instance alluded to was similar to the
first, it may be passed over without further
. But out of this same cause,grew a very re
markable adventure, which it is my present
purpose to relate.
While passing between twdsettlements, over
a lonely, gloomy horse path, leading through a
dark hemlock wood, and while in the most sol
itary part, there suddenly came before me, leap
ing from a thicket on the right, a human figure
of, a most startling appearance. It was is loan
of medium height, but of a stout powerful frame,
all covered with dirty tatters, that he appeared
'to have worn and wallowed do for, years. He
had no t overing for his head:Air feet*fid his
, skin was so coated with grimb 'that it was diffi
cult at a first-look to-tell whAher he belonged
to the white race or not. 11/kface, high up on
his cheeks.Avas covered with a dirty brown
beard, and his matted hair hung in wild profu-
sionldl around his head, except a little space
' before his swollen, blood-shot eyes, and alto
gether he looked like a madman' or human devil,
. His hands held and swung a formidable club,
and his attitude, as he leaped into theoread be
lore ,me, was one of fierce menacelinnd defiance.
I stopped in alarth, and, while fixing my eyes
sharply upon hisi'quietly slid my hand into a
convenient podket and grasped the butt of one
of my, revolvers, firmly determined to keep him
at the t shortdistance that divided us, or kill him
For perhaps a half minute we stood silently
, regarding and surveying each other,,and.then,
resting one end of his club ,pn the ground, and
' partly leaning forward on:the - other, he' said;; in
a coarse; gruff tone, with a kind - Of chuckling
Well,—•-me! I's in hopes I'd • got
aprize at last; but if you're much better off nor
' me, you 'don't show it, by—! Stranger,
who ar' you? and whar ar' yen from?"
returned I.- feeling highly compli
' mented, of coarse, that I resembled such a
villainous-looking object as himself, "some peo
ple-call-me a beggar, and I know I don't pass
for a genteel gentleman." '
ow'ar that—haw! haw! Idw!'" was his
chuckling response. "The world haint made
much of you, more'rn it has of me. I see steal
in your face as plain as daylight. Say, whatjail
or penitentiary lost you last ?".
" Never min d tkal" said I; "probably neither
of us have Ot our deserts."
.‘..Welljt lea bid been accent Sed,litoked

knocked your brains eat !" pursued the 'villain
with a broad grin. "As it is, you can Pais—for
I can aw'ar you paint got,a red!" • -
°Much'obliged for your candor, anyhow!"
He still stood before me, looking straight into
my eye, and now seemed to be pondering some
new idea. Presently he muttered, as if to him
self: _ _
"I think he might do." Then, a moment
after he said•to me, "I say, 04%11w, how'd yoU
like,to•make a faille 7" •
"So* would I law to eat wheilungry." I

"Well; J've gt)r. a plaii„" lie said; throwing
down 111,100, as if to assurrilue of. his pacific
intentions to — wards myself, and quietly advanc
ing to-my hide—" I've got n plan 'that will give
us both a heap of money; and it'll just take two
to carry it ou. I've been wanting a pal, and if
join in I'll go your halves.",
"If there's any chance to turu.a penny, I'm
'our man !" said I.
"Good!" returned he; you look like a trump,
and I'll bet high: on you. I don't know," he
added, eyeing me sharply, "but .I may be de
ceived—but I think I'll risk it. If you go for
to play any game on me, you'd better look out
for yourself that's all."
" - Do I look- like such a scamp as that?" return
ed I, in an indignant tone.
" Well, let's take a seat and talk it over."
We found an old log and sat down :mid after
some preliminary conversation, my new and
interesting acquaintance untold to Tie a most
damnable scheme the substance of Which was
He knew the country well for miles around,
and the exact position and condition of every -
settler. One man, living in a rather lonely
quarter, about fivo miles distant, was a specu
lator in horses and cattle, which he sometimes.
brought up and drove to a distant market. He
had a good deal of money, which it was suppos
ed he kept secreted in his dwelling; and to get
possession of this money was, of Course, the ob
ject in view. The trouble was,; that the man
himself was a brave, determined fellow; who
always went well armed, and also had, besides
his wife-, two grown up sons and a daughter.
which was a force too great fur any one indi
vidual to encounter. About a mile from him
lived a poor widow, who bad nothing worth
stealing except her clothes, which would be
valuable for carrying out our plan.. This plan
was to rob the widow first of her clothing, dress
me np in them, and have me seek lodging at
the 'speculator's house.- Then in the night,
when all the family should be asleep, I was to
unbolt the door, let in my confederate, and we
were to attempt.the murder of the inmates
1 the robbery and burning of the house to follow
and be the concluding scene.
I seeretly shuddered. at the • atrocity of the
contemplated crime, but appeared to.reeeive
the disclosure with the business air of the most
hardened wretch, inquiring as. to the amount of
money we should thus probably obtain, and ob
jecting to nothing but the great risk we should
have tosurr, both before and after the accom
plishment of our purpose. I permitted my ea
ger companion to gradually quiet my fears, and
at last consented to act.
When everything had thus become Settled,
we struck off into the fields, to avoid being 'seen - ,
and just before dark, came in sight of the wid
ow's house. As my companion was acquainted
with the premises. I insisted that he should pro
cure the feuutle garments—but solemnly want
ed him that if he harmed the poor. woman in
the least I would lihse nothing further to do
with the affair.
As good luck would have it, the widow was
-not at home, and my Murderous friend managed
to break in and get the\necessary clothing with;
outdoing any further damage: The widow be
ing a large woman, I had no trouble in arrang
ing the dress so as to pasS '
in a dim light, as a
tolerably respectable female; and then, having
agreed upon the story I wap toll, howl would
manage matters, and the signal that would as
sure my-accomplice of all being right, we went
forward together, till we came in sight of the
house to pe robbed, when I made my. , ,,,nearest
way to the road, and continued onaloue, reach
ing the dwelling about an hour after dark, and
just as the family were about ebncliuling tlvir
Had my design been really what I had led,
my villainous companion to believe I certainly
would never have gone forward with such con
fident boldness ; but feeling my conscience all
right, and knowing I _was acting upon a good
motive, I kept up wonderful assurance, feelink
curious to see how well I could play my part,
and to what extent Ipould carry the deception.
I asked for lodging for - the night, and some
thing to eat, and was kindly and hospitably re
ceived. , The first thing that sent the blush of
shame and confusion to my cheeks, was the
coming forward of a young lady, about eigh
teen, beautiful as an houri, and in a sweet,
gentle tone, asking me if I had Walkedfar, if I was
much fatigued offering to - take my hood, telling
me I should soon be refreshed with a hot cup of.
tea. This was little too much for my equanim
ity. I could have got along with all the rest,
without being especially disturbed; but I was
then a young, unmarried man; and, though not
particularly . ..susceptible to female attractions in
general, I thought I had never looked upon so
lovely and interesting a creature belnre.• I
- out some unintelligabre replies,
kept my hood well drawn over my face, asked
to be permitted to have a few minutes private
conversation with the master_ of the house.
Of course this . request , caused considerable
surprise—bnt it Was granted—and as soon as
we were alone together, I told him in a few
words who and what I was, the strange advea
tute I met with, and disclosed in full the plot of
my road acquaintance to murder and rob him.
He turned pale at the recital, and seemed much •
astonished, but begged the not to mention the
design to his wife and. daughter. He then call
ed his two sons—strong, determined fellows—
recounted the plot to nein '
and arranged to
have everything go forward *as if the Seheine
were being carried out as its vile author de
It took some shrewd management to keep me
to my part withoutletti»g the females into the
secret; but it was effected; and before midnight
I cautiously opened the door and looked out.
There was my man, ready and waiting'.
"Is all right?" he whispered.
Yes,. come inlq '
As he crossed the threshold, the father, and
son sprung upon him. But the fellow was
strong and desperate, and perhaps bad some
slight suspicion of the truth. ^With a wild yell
he cleared their united grasps Att a bound,
leaving a large portion of his rags in their hands.
The next moment the whole four'of us . were in

But he seemed to lead a charmed life, and still
be mon, kepiug a short distance ahead of us.
Once I fancied I saw him stagger; but he gained
the woods disappeared, and we reluctantly and
withdeep chagrin gave up the chase.
When we returned to the house, the wife and
daughterwerebothterriblyalarmed. Of course
an explanation followed—the host being disap,-
pointed in Making the Capture, as he intended,
without 'exciting their fears. There was no
more sleep in that house that night.
"The next morning we went out to the wood
and discovered a trail of bleed. We followed,

Words sound so sweet to me as from the lips of
the beautiful daughter •
The family pressed me to stay with them for
a While;and 1 stayed long enough to lose my
heart and Win another. Strange as it appears,
in lookingback to to it, the'event of that villain
leaping into the road before me, changed my
whole fortune! and sometimes, when I gaze
fondly upon my wife,.l am tempted to bless the
. dark and -wicked design that providentially led
me to so much happiness.
THE RIGHT Bmn.—Old 'Dr. Nichols, who
formerly practiced medicine, found the calls and
fees did not come, fast enough to yleaSe him, so
he added an apothecary shop to his business, for,
the sale of drugs and medicines. He had a'
great sign painted to attract the wondering eyes
of the villagers, and the doctor loved to stand in
front of his shop and - explain its beauties to the
gszieg beholders. One of these was an Irish
man, who gazed at it for, a while with a comical
look, and then exclaimed.
" Oeh; and by the .posi , ers, doctor, if it isn't

idea. I'll have a couple of swans painted there;
would'nt they be line?"
"Paith, and I don't know but what they
would," said! Pat;, "but I'm afther thinking,
