Tire following account of a very remarkable
horse, the property of Judge 11. W. Taylor of
Mobile, was written several years ago by the
Judge to gratify the curiosity of a number of
his friends, and published in the Daily Advcr
tiui'r. Thejtfobile Herald f Tribune, while
again giving it to the public says, “ that 1 John’
i : still alive, and in possession of good health
and ns much playful sagacity as when his life
was first written. lie is now seventeen years
old.” His biographer informs the Editor of
the ‘Tribune that many of his intellectual traits
are yet unrecorded.
‘•lf left to follow the bent of his own incli
nation lie would never patronize a ‘ horse
grocery.’ having no taste for hay, corn, &c.
His appetite is altogether of the refined and
cultivated order, and he probably hankers
as much after the flesh-pots as animals of
a nobler race. lie relishes hugely, roast
beef, beef steak, boiled fish, raw or stewed
oysters, cheese, bread and butter; sips oyster
soup with the greatest gusto and is extrava
gantly load of turtle soup. During his diurnal
visits to the city in year spast. he was constantly
regaled with such dishes at the hotels and rcs
t limits. These tastes were contracted by an
intimate social intercourse with the negro chil
dren. from whose plates he was accustomed
to feed with as much familiarity us any one of
the family in which he was raised.
“ The flirts related of this extraordinary an
imal may be relied on. They are familiar to
numbers ofl the citizens of Mobile. The natu
ral q nestion one asks, after reading the nara
tive, is, can a horse reason ? The following is
Judge Taylor’s account of this remarkable
specimen of “ horse flesh
Every body knows John: and if he is seen
as he often is, in a buggy, and no one in it,
walking, trotting or galloping through the
most crowded streets, threading his way a
mong carriages and drays, no citizens oflersto
top him; hut if a stranger attempt it ,he only
excites a laugh, and is asked how long he hns
been in the city ? I have witnessed some a
inusing scenes of this kind at the expense of
some one’s garni intentimis.
It is proper 1 should state, Hint for the bust
S seven years, with the exception of the past and
prevent winters 1 h ive resided about two and
a half miles from the city. 1 generally come
to town every day about eleven or twelve o’-
clock. I frequently drive to town and back,
without touching the rein. If l conic down
St. Francis street, he is certain to stop at the
Waverly without any thing being said to him,
arid ns soon ns I get out. he will start in a trot
or gallop, and stop at the Corinthian. If 1
come down I laupliin street, lie will go directly
to the Post Office, where he will stop until I get
out, when he will wheel across the street and
remain there, in his opinion, a reasonable time;
if he wants water, lie will go to a pump, and
from one to another, until lie finds a friend to
pump it for him, when he will return.
John is also a general favorite. The free
j dom of the city” was long since presented to
; him in a buggy ! He is therefore not confm
! . (I to any particular street hut goes where he
i likes, in pursuit of me or his own amusement.
1 He will sometimes go to Water street, and
then to Commerce, where with excellent tate
and judgment, he will sample bales of hay on
the sidewalk ; but unlike the cotton samplers,
he was never known to till a bag and carry it
oti on bis hark. He not only knows me from
I others, but can distinguish my voice from all
I others, asmay be easily proved. Hundreds of
persons may pass him daily without attract-
I ing from him any parieular notice. If I e.ome
i toward him when Ids head is turned pom. me,
; .‘iid happen to be talking at the time, although
i from tight check rain, the motion may be dif
ficult. and perhaps painful, lie will turn his
head round, resting it against his side, with
his eye which then exhibits n peculiar tremu
lous motion, fixed on me, until 1 pass. If he
then desires to go home he will raise his head,
point his ears, and start after me. stepping lof
ty and keeping me in view. Although a spir
ited animal. nothing “frightens him from bin
propriety,” in fact, ho “dares do gill that may
become u” —home ! It is a fact, quite notori
i oil.-, that he will go about th- city in pursuit
of me: it is equally so, that experiments have
; been made to induce him to leave me. by turn
’ ing him up the street leading to the country,
| hut afterturning a block or two, he would in
! variably come hack. There are many in
stances of gentlemen having driven him to
tin ir residences in ditierent parts of the city
and turned him loose’to c.orne back ; and lam
j informed some bets Imve been pocketed on such
j performances. 1 had n standing bet for some
i years.! hat 1 would send him to the Market or
the Post Ollice, or any house or point that
I might he designated, and that he woulfl return
safely with the buggy. No one doubted he
would do it. But a lew months since. I sent him
from my house across the country to the Spring
Hill road, and up the road a distance of a mile,
| to the house of a friend, alplough he had not
| been there liir more than a year. 1 have of
ten sent him on* errands of a similar chafhctcr.
; 1 have only to go with him and show him a
place, and he never forgets it. He is ncrfect
iiy under the command of my voiue. 1 speak
1 to him as t would to a servant, and that he
I understands ninny things I say to him, is prov
!<d by the fact that he obeys me. In harness
j or out of it, he follows me about like a dog.—
IHe is in no fear of me, and has no cause, for
i although 1 may sometime* scold him, I liuvc
, never struck him, as l believe, in the seven
years and a half I have owned him. He there
fore does nothing lrom fear, but every thing
It is getting quite late—two or three o’clock
|— I must have gone up the street. He turns
up Royal street, and stopping a short time at
[ tilt* Literary Depot and several other places,
I lie gqes to the Waverly. There is no use in
going (briber in this direction, for he knows I
seldom go above that point. He becomes un
easy; turns back und goes down the street ns
lac its the Court House. He turns again
much excited; his ears thrown buck, his neck
arched his nostrils flattened, and starts into a
fast trot. As he pisses the Mansion House,
he is m a round gallop, wildly throwing his
head lrom mir side of the street to the other,
tl he sees me, he will stop, or come up to me.
I get info the carriage, and without saying n
word to him, or touching the rein, he takes up
the first street leading to our home. Here is
a narraw lane leading to the gate, and to make
n clean turn through it it is necessary to keep
to the right, near the fence. John snows it,
and stop at the pro tier point; I get out, open
the gate and pus* through. He wheels short
round, describing a quarter rirrle, and sees all
is right before him—the gate is narrow, there
being but five or six inches to spare between
the wheel and the post. Jglin knows it, and
in more than five hundred limes passing
through that gate, he has not touched the }wst
more than three er lour times; but when lie
happens to do so, he will immediately back,*
sheer nil of hi* own accord, and pass through,
never failing in his second attempt. There
tire many instances of his having locked his
wheels with other earriqgcs, when endeavor

back, but especially at night, I would trust
him sooner than a professed coachman. Not
the slightest injury has ever occurred to the
carriage by any fkwtMftits.
But he has also a way of communicating his
wishes and wants, by Bigns looks and actions,
which is as perfectly comprehensible to me. as
if expressed in the-plainest language spoken
by man. He not only vses language to ex
press his ideas, emotions &c.. but he has clear
ly invented that language himself as I think
l shall prove. A portion of the year, the sta
ble being left open for that purpose, John is
allowed to come to the house and kitchen when
he likes. About twelve o’clock one light
night, I heard a heavy knocking at the kitch
en door. The knocking continued so long and
so loud, that I got up and went to the window,
when l found it was John creating the disturb
ance. His hind feet were on the ground and
his fore feet on the upper step. Lifting his
foot he would strike the point of his hoof a
gaiuKt the door ten or fifteen times repeating
it every few minutes. From many other fonts
ol hw sagacity, I was well convinced of his
object. called up the serv ant and charged
him with neglecting to feed the horse, but ho
stoutly denied the charge. It is certain I did
not believe Him. But the same thing kappt n
ed several times afterwards, and I Imd as often
called up the servant, who still asserted the
horse had been fed. One day I happened t,i
hear the old negro talking to the servants in
the kitchen, laughing heartily and repeating,
• Joint won’t lie, and master knows it.” A
laugh. “He believes John and won’t believe
me.” Another laugh. “ I won’t tell any more
lies about feeding John. Its no use.” They
all laugh ; and 1 laugh ! When he wants wn •
ter he will go to the well, and knock against
the curb or the water tub, in the same manue .
Os late years, the servant gets up at the earli
est knocking, for he knows that no sleep is to
be had on the premises until John’s demands
arc complied with- I often direct that In
should not be fed in the morning for the pu
pose ofinducitig him to adopt eons- other mode
of communicating his wishes. After exhaust
ing his patience in his usual efforts, he would
come to the house and walk by the door, stci
ping short and quick, and wheeling abruptK
round. After practising in this manner to.-
some time, he would give one of the queen -,
squeals I ever heard, as much rcHeinbliiig the
veil of a Choctaw, us any thing else, although
lie can if he likes, squeal very good English !
In November last, Mr. H. ofC., who was at
my house, desired to witness some of John's
performances. After performing several ti-;
1 have related, and we liad gone into the liou r
the house servant came to me and said, John
would not let her go to the kitchen. We went
out on the gal lent and saw that John h 1
phuited his heels directly opposite to the kitch
en door, looking savagely. I ordered the gii i
to drive him away, which she attempted to d-j
with n stick. But no ! John would not hum e
an.inch. With his head near the ground, hi
cars backed, stamping violently and shaking
his head, he bid defiance. All this I knew
was for effect. I knew he would not have
injured the least living tiling. I tiien told th -
girl to go to the well and draw him water. As
*oon as she started in that direction he threw
off his theatrical character and followed her,
looking pleased, and highly gratified at tl e
success of his ingenuous experiment I will
relate one feat oi a different character. A
year or two ago. when I came to the city on
morning. I left John at a shop in Church strut t
to be shod, requesting the smith after he had
done so, to put the horse in the buggy and h:
him go: a practice I have pursued at that and
- other shops, for several years. An hour or
two after, I was standing on the side walk of
positc to the Mansion House, when 1 saw John
coming down Government street and then un
Royal in a fast trot, stopping within a few let
of me. He soon commenced stamping violent
ly with his fore foot, which continued so
minute or two. The West Ward omnibi,
was standing some thirty or forty feet in fi.
ol him. Walking up to it he put his foot o:i
the upper step, and commenced biting it. Af
ter relieving himself of the fly (as 1 suppose it
was)’he backed the buggy to his old position.
Altho’ John knew, and had Ms reason, why lie
went to the omnibus, yet it is projier the learn
ed public should be informed, that as his eh,
rein would not allow his head to be brought
down to his fuot, be went to the omnibus to
bring up his foot to his head! Mr. P. then and
now of this city, and a number of other genth
men, were amused spectators of this perform
ance. 1 have thus related a few only of a
great number of similar fonts to show tliut the
theory, that ull the acts of the brute proceed
from mere instinct ought not to receive ab n
lute belie!, that it is not a theory which pn
eludes all doubt, il the proper definition of
instinct, be a blind tendency to some mode of
action, independent of the consideration of the
end to which the action tends, these varioi;;
acts can be only the result of mere chance—of
accident! • But will any one suppose such to 1-
the fact? Undoubtedly, instinct may in some
eases, be common botli to man and brutes.—
Both may eat instinctively to preserve life.—
But if you place h variety of dishes before
man, he will select that which is most agrees
hie to his taste. No one would doubt th.-.-
this act would be the result of reason,—but
nut several parcels of (bod of different qualities
before a horse, and he Will dh the same tiling
with equal taste from the same motive; y
metaphysicians tell us this act is mere instinct.
An elephant may drink from instinct as well
as man. In travelling over a desert, man sup
plies himself with water. The elephant after
satisfying his thirst, fills his trunk. In both,,
the motive is the same ; to provide a supply,
not for the present but for future use ; thus ex
tending thought beyond the reality of the
present, to light up a vision in the void of a
future. A man or a horse may walk instinct
ively, without object or motive operating on
either at the time; but place them in an eo
closure with a narrow opening, and euch will
determine with equal judgment, whether it is
sufficiently large to enuble him to pass without
injury, in the man the act would proceed ti n
the operation of the mind—from reason ; the
object of each being the sane—to go out —tin-
result rtf delibertaion being identical, that lie
could or could not puss out; why not admit
that the process by which this judgment is ar
rived ut. proceeded from the same source—*
from the laboratory of the mind—from reason t
It is simply because man, in his arrogance mnl
pride of power, desires to preserve so marked
a distinction; to create so immeasurable a
span, between himself and his felloir animals l
If 1 have stated a few facts which may tend
to throw some light on an abstract subject,
which of late has elicited some attention, in
the meantime, I shall have redeemed a promise
made to many friends at their solicitation, to
give some account of the acts, doings, and
character, of my horse John. He is a north
nnrhorw, finely formed, and without a blem
ish; and although in his twelfth year, he has
all the playfulness nnd elasticity of a oust.
