r the Wester Democrat.
This life is winter ia the year of time,
And has its storms of driving sleet and hail;
Where sorrow's bleak wild-winds, revelling, line
With shattered, lifeless hopes the sunniest vale.
A genial shower one glowing solar raj
Serves to bring out hope's brightest buds of blissj
But disappointment's winds soon sweep away
Each lingering impress of the vernal Lis.
A friend appears a flovcret sweet and fair
Enrapturing all by be.iuty, fragrance, grace;
When lo ! some hand removes the floweret rare,
And leaves a cheerless vacuum in its place.
If morning joys refuse to. plume their wings,
Hut sport around us in their roseate light;
The star of evening sits, and darkness brings
The deadly upas of its cheerless night.
Thus on from childhood's hopeful, sun-lit hour,
An Hitting faliadowa of our years grow less,
This alternating cene of hope and fear,
Contrast the way.-ide with the goal of rest.
O world ! how Cckle is thy staidest rock,
On which to build a hope of lasting joy '(
Where folly lives in gilded death, to mock
And cheat us out of life's first, best employ !
Charlotte, May 1st, 1800.
SAM HAYES AKD THE BULL BACE.
Sonic forty years ago, the managers of a race
course, near Brownville on the Monongahcla, pub-
Iishcd a notice oi a race, one mne neat, on a
particular day, for a purse of one hundred dollars,
'free lor any thing With foui leg, and hair no."
A man in the neighborhood, named Hayes, had
a bull that he was in the hulit ol riding to mill
with his bag of corn, and he determined to enter
him for the race, lie said nothing about it to
any one; but he rode him around the track for a
number of time? on several moonlight nights, un
til the bull had the hang of the ground pretty
well, and would keep the right course. He rode
with spurs, which the bull considered particularly
disagreeable, so much so, that he always bellowed
loudly when they were applied to his sides. On
the morning of the race, Hayes came upon the
ground on lmrsiLa k, on his bull. Instead of a
saddle, he had a dried oxhide, the head part of
which, with the horns still on, he had placed on
the bull's rump. He carried a short tin horn in
his hand. He rode to the judges' stand, and of
fered to enter his bull lor the race, but the owners
of the horses that were entered objected. Hayes
appealed to the terms of the notice, insist: d that
his bull had fi ur hgs and hair on,' and that,
.therefore, he had a riglit to enter him. After a
good deal of ciisin' and discu.-sin' " the judges
declared themselves compelled to decide t .at the
bull had the right to run. Wlicn the time for
starting had arrived, the horses took their plate-.
The horse-racers were out of hum. r at being both
ered with the bull, and at the burlesque which
they supposed was intended; but thought all would
be over soon as the horses started. When the
signal w:is given they did start. Hayes gave a
blast with his horn, and suuk his spurs into the
bull's sides, who bounded off with a terrible bawl
at no tiifling speed, the dried ox-hide flapping up
and. down, and rattling at every jump, making a
combination of noises that had never been heard
on a race-course before. The hores all flew the
track, every one seemed to be seized with a sudden
determination to take the shortest cut to ret out
of the lleJstone ct untry, and not one of them
could be brought bjick in time to save their dis
tance. The pu:se was given to Hayes with a
great deal of hard swearing on the part of the
owners of the horses. A general row ensued, but
the fun of the thing put the crowd all on the side
pf the bull. The horsemen contended that they j
were swindled out of the purse, and that if it had
not been lor Hayes horn and ox-hide, which he
ought not to have ben permitted to bring on the
grouad, the thing wouii not have turned out as it
Upon this, Hayes told them that his bull could
beat any ol" their horses any how; and if they'd
put up a hundred dollars against the purse which
he had won, he would take off the ox-hide, his tin
jiorn he'd leave, and run a fair race with them.
His offer was accepted, and the money staked.
They again took their places at the starting post,
and the signal was given. Hayts gave the bu'.l
another touch with his spur, and the bull gave
another tremendous bellow. The horses remem
bered the terrible sound, and thought all the rest
was coining as before. Away they went again, ih
ppite of all the exertions of their riders, while
Hayes gallopped his bull around the track again,
and won the money. From that time they nick
named him Sham Hayes.
Pknominational Oxen in Texas Texas,
says the True Witness, is a great State. It has
not only a large, growing mixed population eve
ry variety of clhua'te and soil, game and stock
but its very oxen have become denominational, if
not sectarian in name, character and spirit. In
proof of this we give the following incident:
A minister traveling along the road, met a stran
ger driving his wagon, which was pulled by four
oxen. As the miuister approached, he heard the
driver say, get up, Presbyterian!" Gee, Campbel
litel" ''Haw, Baptist!" "What are you doing,
3Iethodisti"' The miuister struck with the singu
larity of such names beinggiven to oxcu, remarked:
Stranger, you have strange names for your oxen,
ami 1 wish to know why they have such names
given them?' -
The driver replied "I call that lead ox iu front
Presbyterian, because he is true blue and never
fails he believes in ulliug through every diffi
cult place, persevering to the very end, aud then
lis knows more than all the rest. The one by his
side I call Campbellite; he does very well when
you let him go his own way, until lie sees water,
and then all the world cannot keep him out of it,
and there he stands as if his. journey was ended.
This off ox behind, is a real Baptist, for he is all
the time after water, and will uot eat with the
others but is constantly looking first at oue side
and then at the other, and at every thing that
comes near him. The other, which I call
Methodist, makes a great noise and a great to do,
and you would think he was pulling all creation,
but he don't pull a pound.
The minister, having his curiosity gratified with
the explanation, rode on, wondering what he should
pext hear in Texas. This is no dream, but a real
fact, as we have heard it; nor are we influenced by
dyspeptic feeliugs in telling our readers the eccle
siastical relation of Tejtas oxen.

Shuttle Sewing Machines.
F. BOONE, Affent at Cliarlotte.
For Family use, - the Eureka Machine possesses the
following desirable qualities : 1. It is strongly built,
runs lightly, 'and its movements are simple and easily
understood. - 2. It works with two threads, using a
shuttle, aud makes the Lock-Stitch, which is approved
for all kinds of work, and for many varieties is the only
admissable stitch. 3. While it will sew the tightest
possible seam, in heavy fabrics, it is susceptible of the
most delicate adjustment for use upon fight and fragile
material; hence it is peculiarly fitted to perform the al
most endless variety of. work which conies w ithin the
range of family sewing. 4. In addition to the admitted
advantages peculiar to Shuttle Machines, it is so con
structed that it can be run at a very high rate of speed
without damage. 5. It uses. any kind of thread, mak-!
ing a uniform stitch, and presenting the same general
appearance on both sides of the material sewed.
