TUNKIIANNOCK, TUESDAY EVENING; MUCH 18, 1851.
INCIDENT IX Tile LIFE OF JOIINIZAYLOT:
.We , copy the following fromthe
day Times. The subject of it,, John
Taylor, was licensed when a youth of
twenty-one _to practice at.the bar in this
city. He was pan, hut welt edricated,
and possessed extraordinary genius. The
graces of his pet:Son, combined with the
superiority of his intellect, enabled him
to win the hand of a fashionable beauty.
Twelve months afterwards the husband
was employed by a wealthy firm of the
die to go on a mission as Land age ,, t
the West. As a heavy salary was of
fered, Taylor bade 'arewell to his wife
and infant son. He wiote hack every
we k, but received not a- line in turn.
Six months elapSed, When the husband
received a letter from his employers
that explained all. Shortly after his de
parture fir the West, the %% ife and her
fiitner removed toAlississipi. There
immediately obtained a divorce by an
act of legislature, married again foith;
with, arid, to complete the cliinax of
cruelty anu wrong, had the name of
fay lo 's son changed to that of Marks—
that of her second matrimonial partner!
This perfidy nearly drove Taylor in
sane. His career, from that period, be
came excentric in the last d gree; some
times he preached, sometimes he plliad
edzat the bar : until, at last, a fever car
ried him MT at a cornparatrvely early
At an errly h)ur on the 9th of A pril.
84-0, the Court. !louse in Clarks% ills,
Texas, was crowded to overflowing.—
Save in the war-times past, there had
ire,yer been witness d such a gathering
in Red River County, while the strung
feeling, apparent on every flushed lace
throughout the assembly, hetokiiited some
great occasion. A concise narrative of
facts will sufficiently explain the matter.
About the close of 1839, George Hop
kins, one of the wealthiest planters and
most influential men of Northern Texas,
ffered a great insult to Mary tlliston,
the young and 'beautiful wife of his
chief °vit. err. The husband' threat
ened to chastise him for the outrage,
Whereupon Hopkins loaded his gun and
went to Elliston's house and shot him
in his own- door. The murderer Was
arrested and bailed to answer the charge.
This occurrence produced intense ex
citement ; and Hopkins, in orderto turn
the tide of popular opinion, or at least ,
to mitigate the general wrath which at
first was violent against him. chJ,culared
reports- infamously prejudicial 'to the'
character of the woman who had al
ready suffered so much wrong at his
bands She brought her suit for slao
der. And thus two catlses, one for crim
inal, and the other for civil, 'and both
nut of the same tragedy, were pending
in the April Circuit Court.
The interest naturally felt by the,
community as to the issues, becalm. far
deeper when it was known that Ashley
and Pike of Arkansas, and the celebra- 1
led S. S. Prentiss of New Orleans, each
with enormous fees, had been h'iained
by Hopkins for the defence. • ,
The trial, for the indictment for min.-
der, ended on the Bth of April, with the
acquittal of Hopkins. Such as result
might well have been forseen, by corn
parine, the talents of the counsel engaged
on either side. T..xas lawyers were ut-:
terly overivhelmed by the,argumenl and
eloquence of their opponents. 11 was a
fight of dwarfs against giants.
The slander suit was set fur the Sth,
and the throng of spectators grew in
rut Prs as swell as excitement : and
, what may seem strange, the current of
public sentiment now ran decidedly for
Hopkins. His money had procured
' pointed ivitnrsses, who served most effi
ciently his powerful advocates. In
deed, so triumphant 'had been the suc
cess of the previous day, that when the
'.slander case Was called, Mary Elliston
was left without an attorney—they had
all withdrawn. The pigmy pettifog
gers dare not braye again the sharp wit
of a Pike, and the scathing thunder of a

sweet, clear, ringing, and mournful.
The, first sensation, hOW.evei, was
changed into generhl laughter, when a
tall; gaunt, spectral figure, that nobody
present remembered to have seen be
fore, elbowed his way, through the
crowd, and placed himself within : the
bar. His appearance:was a problem hi
puzzle the sphynx herself. His high,
tle brow,and small nerVously-twiching,

ted essence and Cream , of genius; but
when his infantine blue eyes, hardiy

cause proceed under his management.
" Has your name been entered on the

the ' slrangei-, his thin bloodless lips curl
ina• up into a. fiendish sneer. I may ne
-allowed to appear onc?; by the courtesy
or the Court, and bar. Here is my li
cense from the higheSt tribunal in Amer
ica!" arid he handed Judge Mills a large
The trial immediately went on,
In the examination of - the witnesses
the stranger evinced but tittle ingenuity,
as was commonly thought. He suffered
each one to tell his own story , without
interruption, though he contrived to
- make each one of them tell it over two
nr three times. He put few cross ques
tions, which, with keen witnesses, only
serve to correct mistakes ; and he made
no not , s, which in mighty meurories
only tend to embarrass. The examina
tion being ended, as counsel for the
plaintiff he had a right to the opening
speech, as well as the close; but to the
astonishment of every one he declined
the.former, and allowed the defence to
lead off. Then a shadow might have
been observed to, flit acroSs the fine fea
tures of Pike, and to• darken even in
the bright ( yes of Prentiss. They saw
they had caught a Tartar; hut who it
was, or hoiv it happened, it was impos
sible to guess.
Colonel Ashley spoke next Heylealt

The poet, Albert Pike, followed mith
a rich rain of wit and a half-torrent of
caustic ridicule,, in which you e
. may b
stint , neither the plaintitr's ragged attor
ney was either forzotteMor spared.
The great Prentiss concluded for the
defendant, with a glow of .gorgeous
words, brilliant as showers of falling
stars, and with a final burst of oratory
that hronght down the house in cheers,
in which the sworn jury themselves
joined, notwithstanding the stern "or

It was then the stranger's turn. He
had temained apparently abstracted du
ring all the previous speeches. Still
and straialif,,and motionless in his s-at,
his pale, smooth forehead, shooting high
like a mountain-rove of snow hut for
that eternal twitch that came and went
perpetually - in his sallow checks, you
writ, I ha% e taken him for a mere man

But now arlast he rises.—before the

to the wondering jury that he miglit

VVitli eyes still half ;hut, and standing
rigid as a pillar of lion, his thin lips
curled as if in measureless scorn, sightly
part, and the Voice comes forth. At
first, ail /ow and sweet, insinuating it
sell through the'brain,as an artless tune ;
witidin its way into the deepest heart;
like phi melody of magic incantation
while _ he speaker proceeds, w,ithout a
gestur or the least sign of escitemktit,
to tear in pieces the argument of Ash=
ley, w ich mats away at his touch as
fiost before the, stinhearm Every one
looked surprised. H is logic was at once
so brief, and so luminously clear,.that
the rudeSi peasant could comprehend it
without effort. ' . ' .
Anon he came to theAazzling , wit of
the - poet-lawyer, Pike. . The curl of his
lip arew.sharper—rhia , _sallowface

dim and dreamy no longer; but vivid as .
lightning, , ted as fire-glebes: and glaring.
like twin meteors. ...The whole soulu as
in. the eye-r-the full heart,stream.ed out
on the tare. five,minutes Pike's wit
seemed the foam of folly,- and his finest'
satire horrible profanity, When cOrtipared

o t the perjured witnesses. of. Hopkins,
tore their testimony into at( ms, and
hulled jn their faces such terrible invec
tive that, all trt;mbled as with ague, and
tivo'of thata'attually fled dismayed from
the court house. '
The excitement of the crowd was-be
comincr tremendous. Their united life'
and soul aPpi.ared to hang on the burn
ing torm- of the Stbr,ger. He inspired
them With the powers of , his own pas
sions He saturated them with the p0i

sei - ‘3ic - d hi have stolen nature's long hid
den s fret of at Ira( lion, He-was the
sun to the sea of ail thought and echo-
lion, which rhse and II and boiled in
billows as he chose., _ But ,his greatest
triumph was to come.
His eyes began to glare furtively at
the assassin, HopiLqs, as his lean, taper
fingers slowly assumed the same direc
tion. He hemmed thei*ret.c,h around
ito a circumvallal ion of strong evidence
and in:pregnaLle argument, cutting off
all hope of escape. He pile'd up huge
bastions of insurmountable facts. He
dug beneath the murderer and slander
er's feet ditches of dilemmas, such 'as :110
sophistry could overleap, and no stretch
of ingenuity . evade; and having thus,
as,one might say, impounded the vic
tim, and girt him about like a scorpion
in the circle - of fire, he stripped himself
to the work of massacre!
0! then, but it was a vision both glo
rious and dreadful to behold the orator:
His actions, before graciifultis the wave
ot a golden willow in the breeze, grew
trnpotuous as the motion of an oak in
the hurricane. His voice became a
trumpet, filled with wild whirlwinds,
dealening the ear with crashes of pow
er, and yet intermingled all the while
with a sweet undersong of the softest
cadence. His face vas red as a drunk
ard's—his forehad glowed like a heated
furnace—his countenance looked hag
gard like that of a maniac, and ever and
anon he flung his long, bony arms on
high, as if grasping after thunderbults!
lie drew a picture - of rnurder in such
appalling colors;that in comparison hell
itself might he considered beautiful. He
painted the slanderer so black, that the
sun seemed dark at noonday when shi
ning on such an accursed monster- 7 -and
then he fixed both portraits on the shrink
ing brow at Hopkins, and he nailed them
there forever. The Agitation of the au
dience nearly amounted to madness.
All at once the speaker descends from
his perilous heipt. His voice wailed
out from the murdered demi, and de
scribed the sorrows of the widowed liv
ing- the beautiful Marv, more beauti
ful every moment, as her tears flowed
faster—till men wept, and vvometi sob
bed like children.
J-le closed by a strange exhortation to
jury and through them to the bystanders.
He entreated the panel, after they should
hring in their verdict for the plaintiff,
not to Offer violtnce to the defendant,
however richly he might deserve it ; in
other words, "not to lynch the villain,
Hopkins, but leave his punishment to
This was the most artful trick of all,
and the best calculated to 'ensiife ven
The jury rendered a verdict of fifty
thousand dollars; and the night alter
...wards linpLins was taken cut of his # bed
liklynchers, and beaten almost to death;
As the I onrt adjourned, the stranger
made known his name, and called the
attentiol of the people, with the an
nouncement John Taylor will preach
here this evenina at early candle-light!"
• The crowd, of course a:1 turned oat,
"and Taylor's sermon equalled, if it did
not surpass, the splendor of his forensic
effort. This is no exaggeration. I have
