Using lip a Gang of Robbers.
The Western hunter (though rarely) has
been set upon by robbers, for the pack
of furs he was carrying upon his back
to some of the seaport towns to dispose
of; but as the fur hunters are generally
on foot, and front habits of watching
about for either hostile Indians or ani
mats, are always on their guard, and as
the robbers well know that they are to
a man riflemen who seldom miss their
mark, they avoid them. During my ram
bles in the wilds and fastnesses of
Calafornia, I have became acquainted
whith many of them, some from the
back settlements of the United States,
others from California. 1 have hunted
for months with them, and witnessed
some conflicts between them and wild
animals, in which the utmost daring
and recklessness were exhibited by the
hunter. These are not the men that rob•
bers like to encounter, but I have said
they take a l►keing to the valuable packs
of furs, which, if they find any facility
for obtaining, they may make the at
tempt upon. It is the very climax of
cruelty to plunder those poor fellows of
packs which were procured only by out
laying for months in the depths of the
forest, and wilds of the country, and
not unfrequently in the hunting grounds
of a tribe of hostile Indians.
I once hunted' three months in the
company of a hunter well known ►n Cal
ifornia. In idea, he was wild and ima
ginative in the extreme; but in his acts
of daring, &c., the most cool and philo
sophic fellow I ever knew. A commer
ciente, or merchant at San Francisco,
on whose veracity I know from experi
ence 1 can depend, told me the follow
, ing story of this man, which will at
once illustrate his character.
This hunter, , some months before I
had fallen in with him, making the best
of his way down the valley of the Tule
Lakes, from the interior with a heavy
pack of furs on his back, his never er
ring rifle in his hand, and two dogs by
his side. He wns joined at the north
most end of the valley by the merchant
I have spoken of, who was armed only
with a sword and pistol. They had
scarcely cleared the valley, when a par
ty of robbers rode out before them.
Thero were four whites fully armed, and
two Indians with their lassoes, coiled
up in their right hands, ready for a
The hunter told the merchant who
ttias on horseback, to dismount instantly
and to "eover.' i fortunately for them,'
there ttias a good deal of thicket, and
trunks of large trees that had fallen,
were strewed about in a tiery desirable
manner. Behind these logs the inerz
chant and the hunter took up their po
sition, and as they were in the act of
doing so, two or three s.hots were fired at
theta without effect. 'Eke hunter coolly

untied the pack of furs from his back
and ]aid them before him.
"Its my opinion, merchant," said he,
"that them varmints there wants either
your saddle-bags or my pack, but I rec
on they'll get neither."
So he took up his rifle, fired, and the
foremost Indian, lasso in hand rolled off
his horse. Another discharge from the
rifle, and the second Indian fell, whilst
in the act of throwing his lasso at the
head and shoulders of the hunter, as he
raised himself up from a log to fire.
"Now," said the hunter as he reload
, ed, laying on his back to avoid the shots
of the robbers, "that's what 1 call the
best of the scrimmage, to get them
brown thieves with their lassoes out of
the way first. See them rascally whites
now jumping over the logs to charge us
I in cover."
They were fast advancing, when the ri
fle again spoke out, and the foremost fell ;
they still came on to within about thir
ty }•aids, when another fell, and the re
maining two made a desperate charge
close up to the log. The hunter from
long practice was dexterous in loading
_ . .
"Now, merchant," said he, "is the
time for your pop guns," meaning the
pistols, "and don't be at all nervous.
Keep a steady hand, and drop either
man or horse. A man of them chant
escape. . .
The two remaining robbers were now
up with the log, and fired a pistol shot
at the hunter, which he escaped 'by
dodging behind a tree close to him, from
which he fired with effect. As only
one robber was left, he wheeled round
his horse, with the intention of gallop
ing off, when the pistol bullets of the
merchant shot the horse from under him.
" Well done, merchant," said the hunt
er, " you've stopped that fellows gallop."
As soon as the robber could disengage
himself from his fallen horse, he took to
his heels, and run down a long sloping
ground as fast as he could. The hun
ter drew his tomahawk from his belt,
and gave chase after him. As he was
more of an equestrian than a pedestrian,
the nimbleness of the hunter shortened
the distance between them, and the last
of the robbers fell.
Thus fell this dangerous gang of six,
by the single hand of the brave hunter,
and as the " commercianto" informed
me, he acted as deliberately as if he
were shooting tame bullocks for the
market. The affair was rather advanta
geous to the hunter, for on searching
the saddle-bags and pockets of the rob
bers, he pulled forth some doubloons
and some dollars, with other valuables
they had, no doubt, a short time previ
ously taken from some traveller. The
saddle-bags, arms and accoutrements of
the four white men were packed up,
and made fast on the saddles of two
the horses, the hunter mounted a third,
the merchant another, his horse being
shot, and thus they left the scene of ac•
tion—the bodies of the robbers to the
wolves which were h6wling about them,
and entered San Francisco in triumph.
Curious Anecdote of a Dog.
The following anecdote was told to us
by an eye witness of the incidents; which
occurred a few days ago, in St. Albans,
Vt., in the presence of several respecta
ble citizens of that village, who are
ready to vouch for their literal truth.—
A gentleman, going from his house to
his office, was passing up the principal
street of the village, in company with
his dog, an animal of unusual size, when
the dog, observing an affray in the street
' between two other dogs of unequal sizes,
walked up to the combatants, and taking
the part of the lesser, (a stranger in the
village, by the by,) immediately drove
the assailant from the ground. The
gentleman passed on with his dog, and
having arrived at the door of his office,
a distance of some thirty or forty rods
from the affray, stood talking with sev
eral persons present, when the following
1 scene occurred. The little dog came
running up from the direction of the re
cent squabble, having a piece of meat
in his mouth, which he laid down on the
sidewalk, directly before the nose of the
big dog, his ally and deliverer. "Bluch
er" picked up the meat and ate it with
great deliberation; the bearer of the
collation standing by and wagging his
tail with manifest delight until the Meal
was over, when he wheeled about and
departed. The spectators having heard
the story of the rescue, looked at each
other with surprise, and each made his
comments in his own way, the substance
of most of their speeches being " that
it was certainly very remarkable for a
1 dog !" "Remarkable for a dog !" ex

a rather cynical person, and a shrewd
observer of men—and dogs : " remarka

following, which we take from the life
of that great Roman, recently published,
will explain the allusion :
Clodius was one of the men *hose
names occur most frequently in the his
tories of those times; a man who dis
graced his talents by the lowest person
al vices and by the prostitution of his
great wealth and eloquence to the worst
purposes of sedition.
This Clodius had a passion for Porn
! peia, Ciesur ' s wife. Pompeia was close
' ly watched by Ciesar's mother, Aurelia.
In the year when Caesar was prietor, a
favorable occasion for their meeting
seemed to offer in the celebration of the
mysteries of the Good Goddess, which
was held at Caesar's house, and attended
ouly by women. The Romans allowed
no man—not even the master of the
house—tote present at these mysteries;
even the pictures and images of men
were covered. The absence of men, the
music and dancing, and other entertain
ments; afforded the opportunity for a
young !mimic slave of Poiiipeia to ad
mit Clodiuv, a beardless youth, disguis
ed as a female musician. The slave
left him to inform her mistress of her
As he was afraid of exciting suspicion
by remaining alone, he wandered through
the darker parts of the apartments,
where he was met by one of Aurelia's
slaves, who put some questions to him,
taking him for a woman. His voice be
trayed him ; and the affrighted slave ran
to the company, crying that there was a
man in the house. Immediately Aure
lia put a stop to the mysteries, veiled
the statues and symbols of the divinities,
closed the gates, and searched every
part of the mansion with torches. Clo
dius was' found in the chamber of the
slave that admitted him. All the wo
men gathered around him and drove him
from the house. Caesar immediately
Both Aurelia, Caesar's mother, and
Julia, lakv. sister, related the story.—
When C wear was ealled upon for his tes
timony, he replied with his characteris
tic caution, that he knew nothing about
it. Being asked, " why then have you
divorced Pompeia ? he replied, "Because
Ctesar's wife should be not only free
from crime, but beyond suspicion."

Gaylord Clark. He indulges his off hand style
with usual felicity. It will be perused with

ANECDOTE OF GEN. TATI.OII.
WASHINGTON, July 2.
While Cram (Wen COL) •Taylor. was
serving in Florida, he captured many
negroes in his conflitts with the Indians.
Many of these negroes were claimed by
persons in Georgia and,Alabarna, from
whose service or. froth the eervree. of
whose fathers it was contended they had
escaped,. Agents on behalf of the claim

ty insisted upon, Col. Taylor refused
to allow the claim, or even to examine
it. He bad come to Florida to serve in
the army against the Indians, not to act
as a negro-catcher. His codtnissidn he
said gave him no judicial powers, and
he could not assume to detertriine mat
ters beyond his province.
The disappointed and enraged appli
cants, after having tried in vain other
means to operate upon Col. Taylor fa
vorably, carried their complaints to the
Secretary of War. He entertained their
view of the case. In consequence; tin
order issued from the Department was
addressed to Maj. Gen. Jessup, then
commanding ifs Florida, directing the
surrender of the captured negroes to
the agent Of the claimants. A similar
order was issued to Col. Ttiylor. The
following is his reply, as copied frOth
the record in the War Department :

of turning over certain negroes captu
red by the Creek warriors in Florida, to
a Mr. Collins their Agent, in compliance
with an engagement of General Jessup.
I know nothing of the negroes in ques

what is contained in the communication
above referred to; but I must state dis

out of Florida, as well as to remove
them to their new homes west of the
