Oo* of Ike Matt Extraordinary Casos of Litiga tion on Record (From tlic Rome (V. V.) Sentinel.] Tim name of John Brown, of Hnrpor'a Ferry notoriety, is un familiar us household words to about every person in the land.— Ilis .tragic but deserved tate at Harper’s Kerry has passed into history, and will not lie forgotten as long as this Union shall re main. It is not with the criminal records ulonc that John Brown's name is familiar; upon the civil calendar his liauie figured years ago, and the suit in which he wnscui broiled promises to live many years to come Some of the incidents cornice led mill. iKi.< ease may bp of interest to our readers, and we therefore rclutc them. Mr. Perkins, of Ohio, was a wealthy per person—some eight or ten years ago said to In worth >1,000,000. He entered into a partnership with John ltrown, and estab lished a commission house in Springfield, Massachusetts, for the purchase and sale of wool ou commission—the firm advancing oae-half or two-thirds of the supposed val uo of the wool taken in by them to be sold A Mr. Warren, of I‘itufield, Saratoga coun ty, in this State, let Perkins k Brown have a large quantity of wool, upon which Per kins k Brown made advances; the price ot rol soon went down, and Perkins k Brown ciamed that they had advanced U) Mr. W. some *4,000 more than the value of the Wool ittkejr had of him ; they brought suit against Mr Warron for the alleged overplus advanced; Mr W set up for the answer that be sold the wool outright to plumtifls, and that it was not a sale on commission,— The suit was commenced in 1850 hy J. Whipple Jenkins, then of Vernon, as attor ney for Perkins Brown; Timothy Jenk ins was the counsel; the ease was referred to Judge Wean; the trial of the case occu pied thirty-seven days; the referee reported in favor its the plaintiff, from which the do tendant appealed. 1 hiring the pendency of this appeal, and which ‘has not yet been argued, Perkins has failed, and Jus assignee was substituted in his stead ; f W Jenkins died, and Ralph Mclntosh, of Vernon, i* substituted as at totaey. John Brown is dead, and another party is substituted in his stead: the de fendant Warron is dead, and another party is substituted in liis stead: Timothy Jenk ins, the counsel, is dead, and Porter and j Cagger, of Albany,are substituted as eou n j cel in his stead. Tin cost thus far is orer £.'!i(KM), and it is said that defendant's e* j fate, once worth some >20,000, is worthless, i that the bail which the law practice re quired him to give, is supposed to have lie | come worthleaa also On the whole the case j js one of the roost protracted and most eu j rious that has been before the courts in a | longtime Saw.

Th* capital is untinally dull just now— every body having left the city for the : springs er to recreate rurally, except the members of tlie far-famed Cau’t-gct-away Club, who, during this hot weather, are apt j to remain very quiet and as much in the , shade as possible, and, of consequence, arc ■ not calculated to cause much hustle <>r ex citement. In (load, so general ha* been the j exislus this scAs-iii, that even the weighty affairs and earn* of Stan have Uteri for a while laid aside, and several of tbc bonds ot j ! department* are- ithcr ruraliting or iruleriioj , ; President Buchanan, as usual, in the Hum j * trier nmnnn, lias taken up his quarters at the i Old Holdier’h Home, just without the limit. | of the city, h ing convenient for his daily J visit to the KxecuUve LepirtnionU, which in the abaence of several men,hers of the Cabinet, he is personally superintending Wc were favored yesterday with a visit of the much talki dol Chicago Zouaves, who arrivr-d in the early morning train from llal tnuorc, accompanied by the Independent Greys Os that city. They were escorted by the Battalion of Light Infantry to Brown’s, where they breakfasted; after which, they paid a visit to the shrine of America, Mount Vernon. Returning, they were received by the President, at the White House, and af ter some congratulatory remarks from him, they went through their celebrated drill in the grounds immediately south of the Presi dential Mansion, much to the delight of some four or five thousand men, women and children there assembled, ami to the great disappointment of quite as many more who had convened three quarters of a mile off, at the City Hall, where the drill was adver tised to have taken place The Zouaves and Greys left in the 6} p m. train for Bal tiinoro, en route for home, the same day The public works, which have been for some time suspended for want of appropria tions from the last Congress, are again in a state of aotivo progression. The Nuvil Monument, first erected in the Navy Yard, where it was mutillatcd by the British in IHI2, and afterward removed to the slope just below the west portico of the Capitol, has been again removed, and is being re erected at the Naval .School at Annapolis. The public printing, for a while stopped in consequence of a disagreement between the House printer, Mr. ford, and the con tractors, is now going on as smoothly as ever. Home little stir has been created among the Republicans here in consequence of the refusal of the Commissioner of Public Build ings to allow their Association to erect a pole at the intersection of three of our prin cipal streets The Commissioner contended that so far from having authority to grant such a privilege, it would be his duly in law to have said pole removed, if erected, as an obstruction, at which they (the Republi cans) have grown quite wratliy, and have piinfft'tl a rtrrion of rwm)ution*, with n view, no doubt, to political capital. They have, however, concluded to abandon the pole pro- jeet, unit intend hanging out a banner, with their candidates’ names inscribed thereon, from a line extended across the street from house top to house top, which is much more judicious on their part, as the staff would, in all probability, have been removed if erected.

A traveler sees many strange things ns he passes from placo to place, and many so ten/ strange, that not half the people will believe them. The following story may perhaps he one of this kind: Stopping one evening und calling at a house, a good large lad came out and invited ine in. lie said his father and mother bad gone to some sort of ngath ering but would be back soon. There came in two young ladies directly, and tlic con versation was rather agreeable than other wise till near dark. They then began to express some tiuoasineas about their parents as they stayed so long. After a while, how ever, their anxiety was somewhat quelled by the sound of a horse walking in the yard. The whole party went to the door, and beared the good lady say, “jump down, Jim my, we have got home.” One of the girls laughed out, but tlio other seemed to be struggling with shame, chagrin, and appre hension. She asked her mother whore her father was; hut could get no well-defined answer Tho old arrived in the night alone, n,.d from the way shespoko when she stopped, it seemed that she thought her husband was near; o.'t such was not the case, and dircetly it became* serious matter. It was proposed that search should I'C made; so the lad, the two young ladies, and t,’; o traveler were soon traveling on the back track of tlie horse carrying a large Sambcau After a journey of over a half mile we heard \ a sound of some sort, and as we neared *t, it began to sound like a human voice. There were plenty of carnivorous animals iu that region, and we were filled with fear. What should we do? Should we get back to the house as best we uould and arm ourselves, or should we rush on at tho risk of our lives* We concluded to push on, for perhaps we I might sa\v the man's life. The farther we t proceeded, the plainer we heard the voice. 1 Often did we stop and hold our breath to listen. Ou getting tip to the poor man we found him alive and cheerfully singing his favorite anthem, (as I suppose,) though somewhat inapplicable: •* Rum in the tumtitrraiul toddy in ih* bowl. I'm glad I'm tn a leather bed, out of the cold. 1 He was iu the edge of a large omd-hole.aud in a pitiable condition How could he have got into such a place’ Was it possible that a limb could have dragged him off? 1 guess lie fainted, though it meg be a bad guess 1 When he get off the horse, why did Dot his Je pcrrvi** it, fur he was riding behind ber! 1 guess she fainted too; hut tku may also be a bad guess. We carried him home | and he was taken care of. H hat a pity it ia that so many people have tbcee fainty ; •pells, which throw them into the mud and mire! What a pity that no remedy cau he 1 found ‘ Pausing on from that part of the i country, new traits of character presented themselves. Overtaking a man of common appearance, who seemed to be quite loqua- | i ions, we traveled several miles—he, all the while, talking of hi* owu acquirement*, orof lor family. The conversation at length | turned on farming He was an excellent j farmer he said, and had made more to his j force than any man iu the country Said I he, “ 1 work hut three Lauds, and last year | I made forty large bales of cotton —three • hundred barrel* of corn, and gathered four hundred bushels of peas; besides that, my wife sold twoliundred dollars worthed chick en*. I have now upward* of two hundred barrels of corn, and twenty large stacks of fodder “ 1 asked him if it was much of a country for wheat? Raid he, “ 1 sowed last year two bushels ami three pecks of wheat. I carried it to the thresher who took onc tunth for threshing [ sunned my wheat well, and then measured it, and it measured two hundred and ninety-three bushels ” When we came to the fork of the road, he insisted strongly for me to go and spend the night with him, as it was late, and no pro bability of’getting to a house of any note. — I went with him of course, and reaped iu great abundance the hitter consequences.— He lived in a miserable hut. His wife would have had to insist hard to get admit tance into a company of Indian women As to furniture I saw none of any value.— All were rags and filth and dirt. I looked about for a corn-crib, but none was in sight. He took one of his sons off a little distance, and told him to ruu over to Mr. Rnipe’s and sec if he could get twenty cars of corn and two bundlcH of fodder. A little daughter was sent to Mr Jones’ to borrow some meal, and two pounds of bacon. Notwithstanding all these untoward circumstances, he kept up a continued stream of boasting, till time to retire. How well for me that it was net winter; yet, how had that it was summer; for many times during the night, I was “re pulsed with great slaughter'.” F. M. T. Crafts ville, Ga. [From the Alexandria, Vie. Gazzette, July 28.] The trouble at Occoquan, Va . tho Lmooln and Hamlin Foie Cut Down—Scene! and Incident!, •to The Occoquan difficulties ended yesterday, happily without bloodshed. A special cor respondent of the Gazzette visited Occoquan yesterday, learned all the particulars of the affair, ami was present stall the transactions. From his report we make the following sum mary of the proceedings:— On the 4th of July lust the black repub licans, of whom some sixty reside in the vi cinity of Occoquan, instituted an association and agreed to erect a pole —to Dear alort a flag with the names of Lincoln and Hamlin The pole was accordingly erected, the fbl- lowing persons participating iu the polo rais ing:—John Underwood, W. C. A they, Rob ert Uiirtis, Oliver Underwood, II IV. Hives, .1 W Miller, Win. Davis, (boy), Stephen Hammill, John Taylor, Andrew Underwood Marion Urigg, T. O. Coulter, James Gould, Thomas Rives, Jr., 11. F. Duty, W. 11 Johnston, T. L. Sclecman, John Wright, Win. Western, A. A. Sclecman, Kwd. Rob erts (Englishman), Tasco Harris (free ne gro), Jim Snyder (free negro), Albert Har ris (free negro.) Upon tlie raising of the pole, the pole rais ers were armed with muskets and made quite a military demonstration. A meeting was held at which black republican speeches wore made by W. C. Athcy and J. Wright, the latter of whom, anew comer, is said to bo quite an orator. Many persons in the neighborhood oppo sed the erection of tho polo, believing it to be a standing menace to the peace of the county, but at first there was no indication of an attempt to disturb it. The republicans when spoken to on tho subject, answered that “there was no one in tho county who dared to touch the pole.” “There were men enough to defend it,” &c. On one oc casion an old resident of tho neighborhood was assaulted because he declared that the pole was a nuisance; and on another, threats were made to ride upon a rail a gentleman living near by, because he had spoken South ern sentiments freely in Occoqttan. Letters were published in the Wheeling Intelligen cer declaring that “the people in the county wanted tlie pole removed, but had not the heart to do it.” This raised much feeling in the neighbor hood, and at a meeting at Brentsville, sonic time about last Court, it was agreed that the flag was an insult to the people of Virginia, and incendiary in the object it was raised to uromote and should be tom down on Friday, the 27th day of July. Intelligence of tJris determination soon reached Occoqttan, and on Monday night a republican meeting was bold there to devise measures for the defence of the flag pole.— Ou the following morning Mr. J. 0. Athcy visited Washington, and scut to Governor Lctchar the following dispatch:— We, the eit teens of Occoqttan, are threat ened with invasion by an armed mob of three hundred men from a distant part of the county, on Friday next, at twelve o'clock M and call upon you for protection in this emergency, otherwise we shall have to de- j feud ourselves W C. ATHF.Y, On behalf of the citiaens, I To which the Governor responded instan ter as tollows : Orders will be issued at once to General llunton, who directed Colonel Brawner to hold a troop of horse in readiness to give such protection as was necessary. When the dispatch was received on Tues day night from Governor I-etcher, great re joicing was manifested by the republicans Whilst in Washiugt -n A they made ar rangements with certaiu republicans to fur nish forty ot fifty firearm* of approved make with ammunition therefor, which were to be sent to Occoquan oo Tuesday night by wagon Thedispatch from Governor Letch j ! er, however, induced the abandonment of , thi* plan. At the meeting at Occoquan, and amid great cthuaiasm, it was resolved j that the pole should be defended to the death unless the assailants numbered more than I ! three to one ot the republicans. On the night of Thursday several of the j wive* of the residents at Occoquan, fearing! bloodshed would oceurthenext day, utteiup . ted to demolish the pole In the attempt, the wife of Mr Duty wasseriiusly wounded j by a blow from her axe. Tie men gather j ed however, and took tbc woman away from around tbc object of their attack On the morning of the 2Tth the republi cans hoisted the American Dig and the par ty ensign, bearing the name* of “Lincoln and Hamliu.” Luring the xiorning most of the women left the village, and the place seemed quite deserted, but io preparations were made for defence, and memorial to the Colonel asking protection nas prepared and numerously signed. At half-past three o’clock the Prince Wil liam Cavalry, Captain Thornton commanding entered the village and raiged themselves iu the neighborhood of th* pole. T hey were followed by a company about forty strong, under command of Captain M. Fitzhugh aud Major Carter, who, paying no attention whatever to the horsemen, quietly formed in a hollow square around the pole, faciug in wards. Whilst this company w as surrounding the pole, Mr. Joseph T. Janney advanced to the Captain of the troop of horse arid claim ed protection for his property, upon which the pole stood. At the word of coinmxod, Jas. W. Jackson of Fairfax, a stalwart yeoman, sprang for ward and give tbc firstblow, others followed, “redoubling stroke upon stroke.” Luring this time there were to interruption, save the republicans and others who stood at corners near by, would cry out, “Aint your axe dull,” “Hope you're Imviuga good time,” &c. In a few minutes, however, there was a cry of “stand from under,” and the pole came to the ground and shivered. Instant ly the crowd gave three cheers, when the “republicans” responded by three cheers for Lincoln and Hamlin. All were quickly at work on the fallen pole, and in less time than it takes to tell it was chopper! up and the pieces carried off. The flag was sent to Brentsville. Ho soon as the flag polo was lcve lied, Cap lain Fitzhugh ordered about face, and his company marched off, saluted as they went by mingled jeers and applause. Luring the evening there was some excite ment, and a personal rencontre took place be tween Col. Brawuer and Joseph ’J’. Janney, in which the latter was considerably injured. The crowd cleared away during the eve ning, and at sundown all was quiet. The “republicans” say they will put up another pole on tlic same siu;. Washington Nows.

Excitement in Texas We copy the statement below from the New Orleans True Delta, of the 4th inst., being the latest accounts received from the infected abolition districts of Texas : The excitement consequent upon the late abolition disturbances has not entirely died out. A meeting of slave owner* was held in the town of Anderson, on the 26th. A vigilance committee was organized and res olutions adopted recommending the expul sion of all white persons suspected of enter taining abolition sentiments, reprobating the practice of giving general passes, and sell ing liquor and arms to slaves. A meeting with a similar object in view, was held in Hempstead, oil the same day, at which precautionary measures were taken. In Wood county a public meeting was held on the 9th, and a vigilance committee was appointed, as well as a watch for the town of Quitman. It has been ascertained that the negroes of Grimes county have held secret meetings aud many of them are supplied with arms. A mass meeting of the citizens of Lamar county was held at Paris on the 28th ult., for the purpose of taking stops to ferret out persons suspected of abolitionism in that vi cinity. j, In Fayette county, a hand of runaway was thought to have been organized, their des tination being Mexico. The Gilmer Tribune reports the arrest of three negroes in that town on the 19th. — They had in their possession passes, papers and various documents, way-bills to the In dian Nation, pistols, powder, caps and wri ting materials. They said they were from Henderson county. The Houston Telegraph thinks the late diabolical plot was only perfected in two places—Dallas and Denton —but had it not been discovered, it would soon have extended to half of the counties in the State. Udnlpho Wolfe and the Liquor Trade. This merchant is a public benefactor. — There is one spot in the land, where a man can go and purchase pure liquors of any kind or description. Wo do not intend to give an elaborate description of .Mr. Wolfe's ex tensive warehouse, or the details of an enor mous business, although it will well repay any stranger in town to visit Nos. 18, 20 A 22. Beaver street. There ire saw liquors and wines in quantities quite startling. A stock of Brandies, pure and choice, valued at ($150,000) one bundled and fifty thousand dollars. M ines of all the choicest vintage, Forte, Maderia, Sherry, valued at (8130,- 000) one hundred and thirty thousand dol lars, imported by Mr. Wolfe, direct from Maderia, Portugal and Spain, and also from the London docks. Mr. Wolfe is now doing in Wines and Liquors, what lie has been doing in Gin for several years past. 11 is Schnapps business has increased, until now his sales amount to (180,000 doz.) one hun dred and eighty thousand dozen of bottles of Schnapps annually. Iu five years he will be equally successful with his Brandies and Wines. Heaven grant it may he so, for he is doing a world of good. How many thou sands of our most clever men are cut off an nually by the poisonous bad liquors ! Ilow many thousands of valuable lives would have been saved, had Mr. Wolfe commenced im porting and bottling pure Liquors and Wines years ago ? But it is not too late now His business merits the patronage of every lover of his species. If he ouly succeeds in preventing the sale of one-tenth of the had liquors uow sold, by replacing it with his pure importations, he will deserve the grati tude of mankind. —Sew York Courier.
