from the Saturday Courier. Pettifogging Lawyers.— Of all the misera le creatures in this world, it ap pears to its that pettifogging lawyers are the most contemptible : and God knows there is: one contemptib e people staying at present upon this terrestial Globe. We have, on former occasions, edito rially said a word or two about these pet tyfogging things in human society. But, the other day, while passing down the North River in the steamer Troy, we happened to be in a conversation with a distinguished gentleman of Philadelphia; and he incidentally related an incident of a creature hereabouts, who passes un der the cognomen of a “lawyer,” which, for rascality, exceeds any tiling we have before had confirmed. The pith of the story was as follows : A miserable creature was taken up for forgery. lie was examined before an Al derman, and committed for a further hearing. Meantime, the scoundrel who practised at the bar as a lawyer went down to Moyamensiug Prison, called up on the committed forger, and asked him, pretty much in the words which follow : “Suppose I should get you clear, what have you got to give me ?” “I don’t know exactly,” answered the prisoner; “but my wife has a little prop erty, which she inherited in her own right from her dead and gone mother, and I don’t know as I could get hold of it.” “Yes you can,” (instantly rejoined the swindling Pettifogger.) “But how ?” inquired the candidate for the State’s Prison. ‘l'll tell you, if you’ll leave it all to tne,’ again rejoined the creature Law-Shark. ‘ And mind,” (he added, with a sort of satanic grin,) ‘if you don’t do it, nothing can keep you from the Penitentiary.” To save himself from such a sad result, the poor devil of afo'ger agreed to con sult his wife. But what will not woman —angelic woman—devoted woman, do, for one she has sworn on the altar of her God “to love, honor and obey /” You, reader, know the result already. She— the all-devoted wife and mother—with her who e heart entered into the necessa ry arrangements to give to the scoundrel lawyer a clear title to the lust remnants of property, which was given to a devo ted daughter on the death-bed of her much-loved mother, several years previ ously. Well, the said scoundrel lawyer now had the undisputed and undisputable possession of the said little property.— VV hat did lie then 1 He employed a mis erable creature, like himself, who would sell his soul fora few dollars of the root of all evil, to swear that the said forger, then in Moyamensing Prison, was no. the forger, and could not have been the forger—because, as lie asseverated on the Court stand, he, the said more-than sus pected forger, was on the very day upon which the forgery must have been com mitted, in his [the witness’s] company, occupied, all the day long, iu a very dif fering calling. Only think of it ! Hero is a creature, entitling himself “a lawyer,” who buys for a few dollars one of his fellow-men, to perjure his soul and swear in open Court to a lie, a “damned lie,” (as Shak speare lias it,) while he himself (the mis erable wretch of a miscalled Lawyer) cheats, swindles and defrauds the unfor tunate wife and mother [whose husband lias now been irretrievably disgraced! of her little all. Are there no thunders in Heaven ? Yes, there surely are—and they will fall upon the heads of such damned villains. We say nothing against upright, dig nified, honest Lawyers—but will (iod in his mercy deliver us from such pettifog ging vagabonds, in genteel clothing, as we have this day pictured the outline of/ A TEX IAN JOKER. The following sterling bit of fun ap peared in the “Texas Morning .Star,” published at Houston, some two or three years since: Aquatic Scenery. —During the hard est of the storm the day before yesterday, we took a lounge down to the steamboat lan ling;—while on the brink of a deep gully, where a drunken loafer was stemming the torrent, ho ding on to a root fast anchored in the bank. The poor fellow, not knowing any one was near him, was combating his fate man fully, and in calculating his chances of escape, gave utterance to the following : “Haynt this a orful sitivation to be pla ced in, no how ? If I wos a steamboat, rail, or a woodpile, I’de be better worth fifty cents on the dollar than I’ll ever be again. Unless I’me a gone case now, there haynt no truth in frenology. I’ve weighed all the chances now like a gin era!, and find only two that bears in my favor; the first is a skunk hole to crawl into, and the second a special iuterpo i tion of Providence ; and the best chance of the two is slim, if I only had the change, I’d give a premium for the skunk hole; them’s my sentiments. If I could be a mink, a muskrat, or a water'snake, for about two months, perhaps I would’ut mount the first stump (other side the Bio, and flap my wings and crow over ever lastin’life, skientifically preserved. But what’s the use holdin’ on this here root ? There haynt no skunk hole in these ere di.>gius; the water is gittin’ taller about a feet, and if my nose was as long as king dom come, it would’nt stick out much lunger. Oh, Jerry ! Jerry ! you’re a gone sucker, and I guess your mann don’t know you’re out; poor woman ! won’t she cry the glasses out of her spectacles when she hears herdarlin’ Jerry has got the whole of Bufferlo Bio for his coffin? What a pity it is some phylanterpist, or member of the humane society, never had foresight enough to build a house over this ere gutter, with a steam engine to ke *p out the water ! If they'd done it in lime, they might have had the honor and iiu grutiiicut 111 o; siv u’ i!i - *»i* i ier being; But it's an day with you, Jerry, and a big harbor to cast anchor in. It’s i too bad to go off in this orfnl manner, when they knows I oilers hated water ever since I was big enough to know ’(want whiskey. I feel the root gtvin way, and sink I don't know a prayer, here’s a hit of Watt’s Doxologer, to prove that I died a Christian : “On tlie bank where drooped the wilier, Long’ lime agro.” Before Jerry got to the conclusion, he was washed into the bayou, within a few feet of a large flat that had just started for the steamboat; his eye caught the pros pect of deliverance, and he changes the linden of his dirge into a thrilling cry of “Heave to ! passenger overboard <fc sink ing, with a belt full of specie ! the man what saves me makes his fortune!”— Jerry was fished ashore by a darkey: and to show his gratitude, invited Quiashey “to go up to the doggery to liquor.” Marshal Ney. The following is copied from Allison’s description of the passage of the br.dge of Kowno, on the Nicrnen, by the remnant of the French army, in their retreat from the Russian territory in 1812: “ The heroic Ney still covered the rear when the troops were defiling over the bridge. Four times the rear guard mel ted away under his command, and as of ten his example and activity had reform ed a hand for the protection of the army, lie arrived at Kowno and vstitute of troops ; a few hundred of the Oai Guard alone retained the use of their arms, and they already defiling over the river. Instantly collecting seven hundred fresh troops whom he found in the town, and plant ing twenty-four pieces of cannon remain ing there on the redoubts, he made good the post during the whole day against the efforts of tue enemy. On the follow ing day he still continued the defence, but finding that his troops deserted him, he seiz and a musket, and, with difficulty, rallied thirty men to defend the gate of Wilua. At length when the passage of the troops who could be persuaded to move was completed, he sftnvly retired through the streets and across the river, still facing the enemy, and was the last of the grand army who left the Russian ter ritory. The first place the German side of the Nietnen where any one of the persons who had gone coil and rest, was Gembinen; and General Muthien Dumas, who had with great difficulty reached that place, inconsequence of a malady under which he had labored ever since leaving Mos cow, had just entered the house of a French physician where he had lodged when passing there before on his entrance into Russia, when a man entered, wrap ped up in a large cloak, with a long beard, his visage blackened with gun powder, his whiskers half burned by fire, but his eyes still sparkling with mide cayed lustre. “At last here Ia n. What ! General Dumas, do yon not know me?” “No. Who are you?” “I’m the rear guard of the Grand Army—Marshal Ney. I have fired the last musket-shot on the bridge of Kowno: I have thrown into the Niementhe last of our arms; and I have walked hither as you see me, across the forests.” With respectful solicitude, Gen. Dumas received the hero of the retreat; tlie benevolent host relieved his immedi ate necessities ; and he soon after set out with Dumas, in the calash of the iutter, on the road for Koingsburg.” Interesting to the Lvotes.— Thera is not an hour in the day in which a man so much likes to see his wife dressed with neatness, as when she leaves her bed-roo ti and sits down to breakfast. At any oilier moment vanity stimulates her efforts at the toilel, for she expects to he seen ; but at this retired and early hour, it is for the very sake of cleanli ness, for the very sake of pleasing her husband. “A woman should never ap pear untidily or badly dressed in the presence of Iter husband.” While he was her lover, what a sad piece of busi ness if he caught her dressed to disadvan tage ! “Oh dear, there he is, an I my hair all in papers, and this frightful un becoming frock--what shall shall I do ? Why, Ma, you receive him, and I’ll run and put ou a dress that will be a little more becoming.” Thus it sometimes is before marriage. But many an O and Bachelor swears m >st lustily, that afier two years of wedlock, in regard to the married lady’s toiler, things are apt to change sadly for the worse. And what is more, an O.d Bach elor [as rich as Craems, now at our el bow] declares, “Sir, that fear of the mar ried woman,s toilet, has forced me to toil on in siug.eness tor forty-seven years of my mortal existence. And what is worse, I am afraid it is destined to make me a Bachelor for the balance of my days.” Ladies, is it impertinent for us io ask you to think kindiy of this important hint /—Saturday Courier. THE BONES OF BLACK IIAWK-BIS SINGULAR GRAVE. The remains of B ack Hawk were sto len, and Governor Lucas made a requi sition lor them in behalf ol the widow and children of the o and braves,and found diem in the hands of an anatomist at Qjiincy, well cleaned and ready to be wired. They are still at Burlington, tho’ it was the desire and expectation of the family that they should be deposited in the Burlington burial ground. A wri ter in the Ilawkeye, in describing the “new purchase,” on the ea>t side of Des moines river, gives the following account of the grave of Black Hawk : — Courier. “At the upper end of the prairie, a few hundred yards from where the timber sets in, is die grave of die once renowned c.lief of the Sac and Foxes—the mitjJity and unconquerable Black Hawk. It might not he out of place here to give a deavipti< iof his grave. It is construc i -d a ' i 1 if Indian m J • of burial,-by . in ditig.i (. u >1 round poles about toil ■ kei long and three wide: then it is built as high as the shoulders of a man won't] be when sitting upon the ground. In the west end of this pen, the mighty Black Hawk was placed in a sitting posture, with his face towards the rising sun; Ins gun, tomahawk,and blankets were placed by the side of him ; and then the pen was covered over, leaving the head and neck of the chief exposed to the weather; his face was painted r. and, and stripped off with black, just as a livingyoung Indian dandy paints, when he goes a courting, thus conveying the idea to the living In dians, that the great chief had gone a courting to another world, where he should receive the favor of the “Great Spirit,” and would he united to some squaw, who has passed the hounds of mortality, and there they would live for ever, in the great hunting grounds where deer and elk abound, and no white man would he there to molest them.” RESTORATION OF A RIFLE TO A CHEROKEE WARRIOR. 0:i the 27th March, 1814, General Jackson fought the celebrated battle at the Ihrse Shoe, with tlie (/reek Indians. The General posted the Cherokee Regi ment, together with filie mounted Ten nessee Volunteers, under Gen. Coffee, on the opposite side of th river, so as to sur round the bend and prevent the enemy escaping in their canoes. In order to enable the Cherokees to engage in the conflict, “ Whale,” a Cherokee Warrior of great bravery and resolution, with two companion?, swam the river and carried two of the Creek canoes across the river lo their company. This*enabled the Cherokees to obtain their canoes, with which they succeeded in carrying over a force strong enough to attack the enemy in the rear and dislodge them from their breast-works. “ Whale” received a run shot wound in the shoulder, in the taking of the first canoe. In 181(3, President Madison had three rifles made at Har per’s Ferry, to he presented to the three warriors who first swam the river, to gether with medals for each. The rifle intended for “Whale,” however, he never got—another person having obtained it. On the fact being communicated to the War Department by Gov. Butler, the agent of the Cherokees, the Secretary ol War has (tad another rifle prepared, to he presented to the old warrior. There is on it, a plate-likeness of Gen. Jackson, and a silver plate is inserted in the stock with this inscription : “ Presented by the President of the United States lo Whale, a Cherokee Warrior, Jar his signal valor and heroism at the Battle of the llorse Shoe, in March, 1814.” This rifle, accompanied hv the medal, will be presented to him by Gov. Butler, [now here,] on his return to the Chero kee agency. The mounting and engra ving on this rifle has been executed in a beautiful and workmanlike maimer, by Robert Leyworth, Pennsylvania avenue. Washington Cor. Baltimore Sun Reduction of Postage.— Mr. Ken dall, in the Expositor, argues that the let ter postage cannot be reduced without seriously diminishing the revenue, un less newspapers, magazines and other printed matter conveyed through the me dium of tlie mails be subjected to a pos tage equivalent to the expenses incurred in their transportation, or that “the De partment shoutd be relieved, by a pur chase of free passage for the mails over the railroads, from the heavy sums it now pays them for mail transportation.” He says, “liar remedy is to abolish the frank ing privilege and make every thing cur ried by mail pay tlie cost of transporta tion. As to the railroads, we have never doubted the power of tlie government to use them for the transportation of the mail, with or without the consent of their owners, allowing them a fair sompensa tion for that use. We have no idea that a corporation road is more sacred than a State road, or that the States can confer on their citizens an immunity which they do not themselves enjoy. Nor do we concede that corporate property is a whit more exempt from being tuKeu for public uses than individual property. But the press has not, as it ought, defended the rights of the government and the people in this respect ; and a large portion of it while demanding a reduction of postages, has sustained the railroads in ex horbitunt demands for carrying the mails which render a reduction impossible.” Delicate Reply. —At a ball given by the city of Paris to Napoleon, was Madam Cordon. The Corscian, in gen era 1 , was not very fond of people who had become rich by any means but his own favor. He had never seen Madame Cordon, whose name even he had never known before, but had been told that her husband was possessed of great weal to. He walked towards her with a peevish sort of air, and said to her, abruptly— “ Are you Madame Cordon'?” She made a profound courtesy to the question, and Bonaparte continued his discourse—“ Are you very rich ?” “Yes, sire,” she replied, “1 have ten chi dreii.” Napoleon, struck with the delicate force of this reply, walked quickly away. A Prompt -Reply.— An Arabian phi losopher was once at a Court of a certain King, who was as much distinguished for Ins injustice as his despotism. The King, agreeably to his character, was de sirous of irritating the sage by some of his insults. To this end lie positively affirmed, that in the infernal regions was u mill for grinding the heads of the learned , and then demanded of the vene rable philosopher if it were not so. He in Ins turn, replied, with a firmness and dignity worthy of the highest eulogiurn —-‘Yes ! but it is the h ood of the tyrants that makes the mill turn.” Most of the public ball rooms in Paris ; have billiard saloons attached to them for the practice of amateurs.
