M f! dfi nan. editor of the New York Literary On
zette J •• and some years ago a personal acquaintance with
(..•tl Taylor, and in noticing one of the “ Lift*,” tells
iho following characteristic anecdote of the old hero:
While indulging in these gossiping references, which
we know will interest some of ottr readers, we may
hr.o relate an anecdote of Gen Taylor, which we oner
h. r!. amid the early scenes of the Blaek Hawk w-ar on
Reex r.ver, and which, though never verified to our
knowledge, still sremsmost characteristic of the R rough I
nnd R ’ndy of later years. Some time after Stillman's
defeat by Black Hqwk’s hand, Taylor, marching with a
large hodv of volunteers and a handful of regulars in
pursuit of th r * hos til'* Tnfflnn force, f'Hind hPun. Ts np* *
proachinij Rock river, t!i *n nw**rred hy many to lie the 1
true north-westr*m boa i larv of th** State of Illinois
Tlie volunteers, a? T vlor was infiimed. woul! refuse
j to croflß stream. They were militia, they mid ctll
eil out for the defence of the State, nnd : t w**s unconsti
tutional to order them to march heyon 1 it* frontier into 1
the Indian country. Taylor thereupon halted his com
mand, nnd encamped within th * acknowledged boun
daries of Illinois. He woul 1 not. as ffip relator .1
the story said, budge an inch further without orders.—
He had already driven Black Hawk out of the State,
but the question of crossing Rock river seemed hugely
to trouble his ideas of integrity to the constitution nn
the one side, and military expediency on the other—l
During the night, however, orders came eitiie** from
Gen. Scott or Gen. Atkinson,for him to follow up Black
Ilawk to th** last. The quietness of the Regular colo
nel meanwhile had rather encouraged the mutinous mi
litia to bring their proceedings to a bend. A sort of
town-meeting was called upon t(ie prairie, and Taylor
invited to attend. After listening for some time very
quietly to the proceedings, it became Rough and Ready’s
turn to address the chair. “He had heard,” he said.
“ with much pleasure the views which several speakers
had expressed of the independence ami dignity of each
private American citizen. He felt that all gentlemen
there present were his equals—in reality, he waspersua- *
ded that many of them would in a few years be his su- ‘
periors, and perhaps, in the capacity of members of
Congress, arbiters of the fortune and reputation of hum
ble servants of the Republic lik*‘ himself. He expected |
then to obey them as the interpreters of the will of the
people ; and the bent proof he could give that he would
obey them, was now to observe the orders of thnec :
whom the people had already put in the placet of nu- i
thority, to which many gentlemen around him justly as
pired. In plain Engl sh, gentlemen nnd teffow-citizens,
th* word bus been passed on from Washington to follow
Black Hawk, and to take yon with me ns soldiers. 1
mean to do both. Tlrerenr* the ffathoots drawn up nn th**

A most destructive fire, occurred at Maysviile, (Ky.)
° n Wednesday last. The Cincinnati Commercial
says: “The finmes commenced in the three larg
warehouses owned by Gen. Colima, which were entirely
consumed ; and such was the heat and the rapidity of
the fire, in its destroying course, that three other build
ings (frames) were also destroyed. The latter were
owned by Mr. Newton Cooper, and occupied by several
families. A quantity of hemp nnd bagging, belonging
to the Maysviile Manufacturing Company, and amoun
ting, in value, to about $*2*2,000, was destroyed. The
entire loss hy this fire is estimated nt between thirty
md thirty five thousand dollars, of which about ten

win iirg- upon that honorable body the great necessity,
as we conceive it, that the Supreme Court should be held
at some e.riti ;i | point in the State, which would off rd
the gieatest lacilities to the court, attorney:! and parties
w.:o may have business m said court.
In consequence ol some complaint having been made
