He state that Adams came to his ro-imi on the

about whii h there was some dispute. They both
sat down at the table and settled the various items
except $3, whon a dispute arose between them,
and high words ensued, during which Adams called
him 'a liur.' Exasperated at this he struck him,
and a scullla thereupon enxued, Adams being the
stronger man of the two, threw and fell upnn Colt,
and clutched him s i violently by tho throat that he
wq in da-tiger of choking.
Colt was .then lying upon his hack on tho floor,
and as his hand was slreiched out, it came in contact-with
somi thing which ho i.t onro seized, (but
as he avers he knew not what it wns.) ami finding
Adxnis ' grip t.t II hard up in his throat, he brought
his hand round and struck him on the back of the
head; this it would seem was hardly suiliclcnt to

fjj" Under our obituary notice this week, we
era cille.l upon to record the death of James Mer-
ill, E-i. of Union county. About a year since
Mr, Merrill became olllictcd with a disease in his
left click, which upon examination proved to be n '
carreer. Tho most distinguished medical men of
the state were consulted under this afflicting di- ,
prnsalion, but it was soon apparent that there was cwcii rop- of )rcerdinas of the inemliera of
'no hope" this aide the grave, and that the period '. Irtr lf ollhu,b,.rand county, in relation to
ot tits existence in tniswnu must ue as lirtel as
his l.fe and character had been useful and exempla
ry. He died nt his residence in New Uirlio, on
Friday the 29th u't., in the 0(. h year of hi ag'.
integrity, public spirit, and purity of principle, wr
exemplified in practice, richly merited the univen
attachment and regard w hich he received.

The slave knew it and Ircmblrd.
His immobility was completo. For tho whole
American empire he would not have dared lo raise
Ins eyes, lie would havo given ten years of his
lite to have found himself far from sin h a frightful
enemy. Neither did tho serpent move, liaised up
in his coil, he overlooked the rass of the savannah
ui.h his head dotted with epota of the col -r of ocre
of vrllow and o augo; his eyes like velvet, and bin

rays of the sun.
1t a man ignorant of thedunger to stop in the
pioxnnity of his reptile, it would be a real pleasure
to contemplate rts delicatcncss, the expiession of
its eyes, and the grace of its movements. The ser
pent did not delay long in beginning to leip, draw
ing in the air rapid circles, producing a weak sound
like tilk coni ng in contact with a w.dl. The slave
tretnbbd more nnd more, when he heard a strange
noise which he believed came from the grass, which
pinmk with force. His imagination presented an
t-ntire family of serpents, ready to cast themselves
upon him. Fear obliged him to enlarge his sight.
What was his astonishment on seeing that the ser
pnit Fustaint-d a terrible contest with a bird ! He
Hit n knew that his life was riot threatened, nnd
blessed heavon in the sequel disposing him to flee ;
when, seeing thnt tho reptile had lost the grea'cr
part of i's vigor, ho wished lo be picjunt .it the and
of that strange combat.
His post was not now dangerous, and cutiosity
dc' lined him. '
The combat continued with ferocity. The l'r.l
k'-pt in constant motion his sharp talons, and woun-
d. d the sen cnl deeply with his pointed beak.
The serpent biing much exasperated, dragged it
self through the grass, nnJ divided the air in all i'i
rectiot s, a; e iliiif to ita whole ferce and cunning,
lhrjwii! hinwlf towards tho river lo avoid the
blows of bis enemy. Hut thcbiid fallowed him in
the air without t(op;:iig between the gr.ss, to the
brink of t'-.e river, and attacked him with each time
with renewed rage.
Only now end thon tho l iid gr .nted the terpen!
