---The following is an account_ of one of his
-forts at the bar. . '• • '
At, an early hour on the 9th of April,, 1840 . ,
the Court 1-16 use in Clarksville, Texas, lras
crowded - 'to everflowmg; . Sae in the war
times, there had never been witnessed so large
a gathering irrthe Red River country, while the
strong 'feeling apparent in every face•vvill sufft= .
ciently explain the matter following: • • .
About, the close of 1839,.. George Hopkins,
one of-the"-wealthiest planteis and most infi.u
entiel men in No: tlpkro eff red a 'gross
insult to Mary kl'o•st.a: the ) be..nlifOl
wile of -his The buiband
threeteded to ,chastise fOr the 'outrage,.
whereupon Hopkins, loaded his gun,- went to
Flfison'sltouse,•and shot him, in his own door. .
The .mutderer was arrested, end hailed' to
answer the , cherge: Tlie occurrence -produced
intense excitement, :and Hopkins, - in order to
t urn the tide of popular opinion,'-or .ht least to
mitigate the general wrath whfchwas -first
olently against 'him, circulated reports NW
. to the character and stand
-Mg of the woman whO had suffered shch ruel
wrongs at his hands . .. • • • • .
• She brought suit , for Slander. thuj two
cases—one criminal and. the ether civil , and: .
both.out of the Same tragedy, were pending at
the April" Circuit Court for 1810.. ii,v •: • •
TheinVrestmeturally felt by.thpsomnounity
'as to the issue,- became far deeper . when it was:
known.that Ashley and Pike, of Arkansas-, and
the celebrated S.'S. Prentiss, Of New -Orleans ;
eaeh . bY Miorchous fees,. had been retained by-
Hopkins for defense. • .•
The trial of indictment fOr murder concluded
On . the•Sth of AMA, with the acquittal of Hop
kias. Such a. result might have been', well
foraseen, comparing the talents of the counsel
engaged on either side. , . '
The Texas laWyers were utterly overwhelm
ed by, the arguments and oloqUence of their op
ponents. It was a fight of dwarfs . against gi
ants. - .
The slander suit Was set for the '9th, and the
- .
throng 'of . spectators greW in,nuiriber as well as
excitement. And What seemed strange, the'
current of public , opinion now run decidedly for .
Hopkins. His money. had 'procured 'witnesses
who served his powerful advocates.. Indeed so•
triumPhant had been:fhe success on. the previ,

Sornewhatlpickey—it was so unearthly aweet,
ringing . anrinournful. • . •
The first,aensation, however, was changed
into laughter; whtni•i*gatint, spectral Ag
ure.that 'no person present remembered:to have

exowd, 'and•placed himself within

smalli nervously twitching.faCe seemed active
with the concentrated essence' and cream

Visible beneath their Massive arches, lookipg
dim, dreamy, almost unconscious, and his clo
thing was so.sbebby that the court almost hes
itated balk the case proceed 'under his :man,
ttHis your'narne been entereff.oe the rolls •ol

.by, the
,courtesy 'of the coitrt and
bar. tiere it; my license froni oe:highest tri
bunerit Americn," and he handed Judge Mills
abroad parchtnent.... •
The trial immediately went On.: In the ex
amination of th;Wituesses the stranger evinced
very. little ingenuity ae .commorily ;thought;—
He suffered eneYene to tell their awn story,
without . interruption,•' . though he generally
hrnanged to make each:one tell it over two or
three times. He put .a feW'cross 'questions,
which with keenwitnesseionly served to , car
rec t mistakes,. and he-made no notes,,which, in
mighty memories only tend to ernharrass.. •
The examination being ended,. as counsel for
the plaintiff, he had a Tight to the openinz as
well as the closing
_speech; but to the aston
ishment otTeyery - one, he declined the former,
and alloWed the defense Co lead . • '
Then a shadow might have heel) seen to flit ,
across the features of. Pike, and. to darken the
bright eyes of. Prentiss.. They , saw that 'they
had.rtcaught a Tartar,"bet who it was OrhoW,
it, happened, was impossible to guess: ...
Col. Ashley spoke first. He dealt: the jury.
a dish of that coarse,ilry.logic•which• year's af
terward,rendered him.famous in the Senate of
. .
The Poet, Albert Pike; followed with' a vein
°twit, ind a half torrent of . ridicule; 'in . which
neither the plaintilf nor her ragged attorneY
were forgotten or spared.
The great Prentiss•concluded - for the defend;
ant,witif a glow ofgOrgeous words, brilliant as
a shoWer of falling stars, and with burste of
oratory, that brought the : house down in cheers,
in which even the sworn jury' themsel ye's, joined.
notwithstanding the stern order of the bench.
Thus 'wonderfully susceptible are the Southern
people to the charms of impassioned eloquen'ce.
It was the stranger's turn. He. hid remain_
ed apparently abstracted during all the pievi-
Ous speeehea. Still; and straight, and inotion
less in his seat; his pale, smooth forehead
shooting- high like a mountain coned snow,
and but for that continued twitch that came
and went perpetually. in • his face, you Would,
hive taken him for a . mere man of marble, 'or
hamin form carved In ice. EVen his Aim,
dreary eyes were invisible beneath', those grey
shaggy eYebrows. • • .
...13ut.now at last he.rises—before•the bar, not
behind it.—and so near•the
,w.ondering jury that
he might touch , the foreman' with his long bony
fingers. ,'With. With. eyes half shut, and standing
rigid as a pillar of iron, his.thinlips curled as if
in measureless& Sccirn, slightly apart, and: the
sound came forth, • .
At first•it is low' and. sweets. insinuating it
self into the brain, as an artless . .tune . ' . y..iritling
"its way into the deepest. reeesse . s . ar,the . heart
like the melody of a magic incantation, 'while
'the Speaker 'proceeds without 'a gesture or the
least signal of excitement, to tear to pieces the
argument of Ashley, which melts away at his
touch as frost before the sunbeam. Every'one•
looked surprised. His logic was at once brief,
and so luminotisly' clear, the rudest • peasant .
could comprehend it without an effort.
Anon .he came to the drizzling.vrit.oftke poet'
lawyer Pike. 'Then, the curl of his: lips grew,
sharper, his smooth face began to kindle up,
and his' eyee to open—dim and dreary nn long
er;" but vivid as jightningi rest as Are globes; as
glaring as twin'tneteors. The whole soul wtts
in his eye, tha full 'heart streamed out of his.
faCe. In five minutel Pike's' wit seemed like
ream of folly,. and •finest satire horrible pro_
fanity when compared with the , inimitable sal.
lies and . exterminating sarcasm of the stranger,
interspersed with.jesti and anecdotes that' tilled
the fo s rum with laughter: •

Ohl then it was a vision most glorious and

His voice became a trumpet with wild
whiripools;:deafening the air ivith the crashes'
of power, and , y4.intermingling . all 'the
with a'stieet tinderiong , of the, softest cadence.
Hisfice.was as red as , a"diunkard's—his

This was the most artful trick of all, and. the
best ceulculated - to insure vengeance: •
The jury rendered a verdict of twenty thou

beaten`almost to death. ~
As the court-adjourned the 'stranger • made
