A Husband as Collateral.
Justice Davidson was called to his
office Monday night to attend to an old
colored woman named Joanna Ury,
whe, though far past the stage of sen
timental girlhood, about sixty summers
having galloped over her head, was
wanting to get a husband, or $15, she
didn't care much which. She had a
young man named Wilson brought up,
and getting him in a position where she
could look clear through him with her
withering glances, proceeded to state
her case to the justice. Wilson had of
ten professed love to her and had work
ed himself far enough into her confi
dence as to succeed in procuring small
sums of money from her, amounting in
all to $15, which he was to pay back
when he married her. He stood her off
until her patience was exhausted and
she had to close down on him. She
wanted the justice to make him marry
her, or pay the $15 and be jailed for
breach of promise. She wasn't much
particular, but in reply to the justice's
question, said she believed she would
rather take the man. At this Wilson
glowered unutterably at her and began
to suggest compromises, but she was
unmoved, and for a time it looked like
the unfortunate swain was bound to
put his neck in the yoke against his
earnest protestations and declarations
that he would rather go to jail for a
thousand years. At the sight of the
greenbacks she began to relent and
finally concluded to take the money and
let the husband go. It was a tight place
for Wilson, and! he will have a care who
he borrows money from in the future.

it wouia do nara to nna a merrier
party than the little sixtette which filed
out from Morgan ton on horse-back on
the evening of the 29th of May, (bent
upon a tubing excursion through the
mountains of Western North Carolina,)
in tne roiiowmg order : First came the
red-headed Pilot, whose knowledge of
wood Graft enabled him to guide us un
erringly inrougn tne almost trackless
forests to the beautiful waters of the
Lmville. Next came "Civil Citizen,"
since named Aunt Susan, from the
strict observance of proprietary laws,
and from having been elected chape
rone of the party. The jolly laugher

Whose loud laugh of deceit, so wonderfully swet,

f 1 1 i j. .
ioiiowea ciose upon me neeis or our
chaperone. Fourth in order rode the
"Lone Fisherman," (so called from the
huge proportions ot his mighty hat,)
carrying with him enough goods ana
chattels to stock a Gypsy camp. The
stately General, clad in an elegant cor
duroy hunting suit, and bestriding a
grey cnarger witn tne ease and grace of
a Prince, was the fifth horseman, while
the Jinight of fenowdowne, our colored
valet, brought up the rear with the
commissary of the camp. Our first
night was very pleasantly spent at
Piedmont Springs, where the "Bie 5
immortalized themselves by eating half
uie young cnicsens on tne lot, and
climbing a tree to engrave their names.
The following morning we made the
ascent of "Jonas Kidge, rounded "Ta
ble Rock," "Hawk's Bill," "Linville
norc un, etc. ; enjoying Dy tne way-
Biae tne aeitcaie perrumes Which the
wandering winds shook from the clus
tering herbs of the surrounding forests
Reaching Linville in the afternoon, we
soon hooked enough trout tor a bounti
ful repast. Early Wednesday morning
tne wnoie party armea ana equipped tor
a day's sport, were found splashing the
spanning waters ot the beautiful Lin
ville, and as the result of the day's
sport one nunared ana eighty-seven
nne trout were nooKea. in the mean
time various other accomplishments
have been studied and brought to per-
rection. xne "ismiie-jfeaaier, tor in
stance, has laughed himself so fat that
he has to wear snow-shoes to maintain
his equilibrium in tbestreams, and even
that precaution failed to steady him
once, when the United States flew up
ana nit mm a very nara lick. He aoes
very well on "terra firma," but he has
indulged in so much buttermilk thathe
has to unbutton his coat to laugh. But
he enjoys it all and is growing more
-nd more philosophical every day.
niot nas nvanea tne solitary .rung
Fisher in the art of catching fish with
out bait or fly, and when the fish doesn't
rise to the fly, he dives to the fish. Civ
il Citizen adheres strictly to the rod
and fly, but always brings home a bas
ketful of fish. The party was this
morning divided into pairs and pools
sold upon the result ; first, second and
third choice bringing respectively,
$163, $8, $4.12. Leaving Linville
we maae our way across the Blue
Ridge by the most circuitous, difficult
and dangerous route ever attempted
by low-country horsemen, to Banner's
hiik, a beautiful stream west of the
Blue Ridge, We found there a delight
ful resort and excellent fare, but poor
1 rom Banner s Elk we passed over
the mountains by wav of "Hanging
Rock Gap," (if a point 4,500 feet hieh
may be called a gap) down "Valley Cru
cis" to where it empties into Watauga
river, and up the latter stream to Aunt
Phoebe Shull's. Everybody knows or
should know Aunt Phoebe. She is the
centenarian . of the mountains and the
greatest living curiosity in Watauga
county. We are now stopping at "Sil
ver .Lake House near "Blowine
Rock." Yesterday being Sunday, we
took in all the surrounding scenerv.
doing the different points of interest in
the order in which they were shown to
us. we had for a guide ourtrustv
young friend Mr. W. B. M., who, with
his bride, is summering in the moun
tains. We first visited Flat Top Mountain.
The view from here is one of the grand
est in all Western North Carolina, the
Roan not excepted. Looking west the
eye sweeps the horizon from where the
snow-beaten brow of the great Grand
father kisses the blue vault of heaven,
to where the misty pinnacles of the
Black look down upon the world of
beauty below. Following up the line of
vision you take in the South Mountains
for a distance of fifty miles, while the
intervening mountains seem to rise and
fall like billows of the sea. Mt. Ida,
King's and Crowder's mountains, can
be distinctly seen in the southeast,
while in the northeast the lonely Pilot
in Surry stands out like a solitary
watchman. The stately "G ," who at
times is given to romancing, climbed a
tree and said he could see" Mt Wash
ington, in New Hampshire. We took
his word for it, as we do for everything
else. Having descended we were joined
at the hotel by the sprightly young
bride. With this accession to our partv
we set out for "Fair View," "Blowing
Rock," etc. i
The ride is a most picturesque one,
the mountain being covered with the
most magnificent trees we have yet
seen. The azalias in a variety of colors
mingle their delicate odors with the
faint perfumes of the rhododendron.
The mountain magnolia pink and white
laurel, trailing arbutus, and innumera
ble other wild flowers are in bloom, and
every turn of the eye finds a new scene
prettier than the last. Having reached
Blowing Rock in safety, nature's cur
tain rises to the soft, music of whisper
ing winds, and the great panorama is
at iast before us. We quietly descend
from our horses and pause in solemn
silence. No pen can describe the mute
eloquence which Invests each and every
surrounding object We clamber to
the edge of the cliff, and the bride hav
ing selected the hiehest point as her
seat, we each take toe position, that suits
us best. The silence which ensues is
only broken hy the murmuring winds
from the ravine below. Transposing
the beautiful language of Mark Twain :
"It i3 an anthem sung in stone, a poem
wrought in mountains," and dedicated
to the skies. The poet grew
sad ; he died last night and rests beneath
the laurel's shade. Civil citizen became
wofully tranquil. The red-headed pilot
was silent for ten minutes, the first time
since leaving home. The stately gene
raljsoared higher than the clouds above
him and secured anew theobarm which
he: wears about bis neck. The smile
sffeddler became mote as the stone upon
mbichBer8at-.and. was only aroused
frogi his reverie by the merry" laugh of
the ryoung-bridelK was the, first to
break the silence of the solemn convo
cation. The bride and groom alone
looked happy. Mirth soon followed
meditation, hats were thrown aloft in
ecstacy and wafted back ta their own
ers. The week's sport has terminated
