It was inthe account which we once gave, the
public, we believe, of the scrape which .Daddy
Biggs" got into at Cockrell's Bend, that we allu
ded to a certain affair, known as the ." Muscadine
Story ;" the which," in the opinion of our hero.was
not a matter to be related in print, while 'wimmen
remained so " mtmstusjrlhts a thing The story
was therefore suppressed, and our readers left to
worry their brains with impotent surmises, con
jectures and speculations.. , ...
Time, the great modifier ,often softens the harsh
est aspect, while he corrugates anil disfigures the
most beautiful. Alike are his operations in the
physical and moral world. . airs. Suggs acknowl
edges a change in her viewof things, produced by
the lapse of years. The Captain's former vaga
ries his little peccadilloes his occasional gal
lantries she now considers as the venial errors
of a somewhat extended juvenility. In fact the
good old Jady feels some little pride now, at the
recital of any incident tending to show the irresis
tibility ol her liece lord, considered with reference
to the softer sex. ' Bygones are bygones with
her if Captain Suggs was good lookin' and sas
sy, it was not her fault." The reader will ob
serve that she ueos past tense Sugg fail, ulu ! as
far as female conquest is concerned he stands
how simply tottering, whitened, leaky-eyed, gar:
ruloua old man. Mrs. Suggs, therefore, is no lon
ger annoyed by allusion to his prowess in other
days, and the tale of the Muscadine may, with
propriety, be made public,
; t was bland September morning, in a year
that need not be specified, that the Captain, stand
ing in.view of the West door of the Court House
at Dadeville, perceived the Sheriff emerging therq
from, a bundle of papers in hand, and looking as
if ha desired to execute some sort of a capias.
The cnptain instantly bethought him, that there
was an Indictment pending agAinet .himself for
gaming, and began to collect his energies for an
emergency. The Sheriff hailed him at the same
moment, nd requested him to ''hold on."
... Stop, Ellis right, '.har in your tracks, as the
bullet aaid to the bucK," Suggs responded "them

"No. use," said the office?'' sooner or later

long hill towards Johnson's Mill creek. Right j
turdy the pony bears his master on, but tlie bay i
is overhauling him fast ! They near the creek!
He has him! no! the horse runs against the
pony falls himself projects his rider into the
thicket on the right and knocks the pony and its
rider into the stream ! .
It happened that, by the concussion or some
other cause, tlm girth of Captain Suggs' saddle
was broken ; so that neither himself nor his saddle
was perfectly on Button's back, when they reach
ed the water. It was no. time to stop for trifles,
however; so leaving the saddle in the creek, the
Captain b strode the bare back of his panting ani
mal and made the best of his way onward. He
knew that the Sheriff would still follow, and he
therefore turned from the road at right angles,
skirted the creek swamp for a mile, and then took
a direction by which he would rca,ch the road a
gain, four ji five miles from the scene of his re
cent submersion. .
The dripping captain and hie reeking steed cut
a dolorous figure, as they traversed the woods.
It was rather late in the season to make the hy
drophatic treatment they had so lately undergone
agreeable ; and the departure of the Captain from
Dadeville had been too unexpected and hurried to
allow the slightest opportunity for filling his quart
tickler. 'Wonder,' said he to himself, 'if I won't
take a fit afore I git any more or else have a
whole carryvan of blue-nose monkeys and forty-
tail snakes after me and so get a sight of the
menajjerie 'thout payin' the fust red cent ! Git
up, you d n Injun !' With the last words,
Simon vigorously drove his heels against Button's
sides, and in a half hour had regained the road.
Scarcely had Captain Suggs trotted an hundred
yards, when the sound of horse's feet behind him
caused him to look back. It was the Sheriff. .
Hello! Sheriff! stop !' said Suggs.
The Sheriff drew up his horse.
I've got a proposition to vnake to you ; you can
go home with me, and that-1 can give bond.' .
' Very well,' said the Sheriff.
' But hands off until we git thar, and yon ride
fifty steps ahead of me,for fear of accidents that's
the proposition.' . V
' Agreed !'
' Not so fast,' said Suggs, ' thar's a condition.'
' Have you got any liquor along?'
Tlje Sheriff pulled out a Uack bottle by way of
reply.- y ' V. ' .
Now,' said Captain Suggs, ' do yon put the
bottle on that stump thar, and ride out from llie
road fifty yards, and when I get it, take your pcr
sition in front.' .
TheRe manoeuvres were performed with much
accuracy, and the parties, being ready, and the
Captain one drink ahead ,
1 For rard, march !' said Suggs.
In this order, the Sheriff and the Captain wend
ed their way, until they arrived at the crossing of
Eagle Creek, It stream having ft miry swamp on
each side. As his pony was drinking, an idea
popped into the Captain's head which was imme
diately acted upon. He suddenly turned his pony s
head down stream, and in half ft minute was out
of Sight. ' . .-;
". Come, Betton,' said.he, lot's hunt wild oaft
spell !' ;:. -i. ,. -.-V
' The Sheriff, almost as soon as he missed our
hero, heard him splashing down the creek. He
plunged Into the swamp.with the intention of head
ing him, but tlie mud was so soft that after floun
dering about ft little while, he gave it up, and re
turned to the road, cursing as much for the loss
of his bhtck btttle, as of the Captain.
' ' Hello, Ellis ! shouted Suggs.
Helle, yourself I
' Don't yon try that swamp no more ; it'll mire
butterflies, in spots!'. . : ' . .
'No Danger!' was the response.." :

On the morning after the occurrence of the ad
ventures we have related, Captain Suggs sat in a
long train built Indian canoe, wnich was moored
to the North bank of the Tallapoosa river. Near
him was Miss Betsy Cockerel!. She sat facing
the Captain, on a board laid across the gunwales
of the boat. Miss Betsy was a bouncing girl.plump
firm and saucy ,with a mischievous rolling eye, and
ft sharp word forever at her tongue's end. She
seemed to be coquetting with the paddle he had
in her hand, and occasionally would strike it on the
water, so as to be-spriukle Captain Suggs, much
to his annoyance. . . ,
'Oh, Captain you do fersuude me to promise you
so hard. And Jim Sparks says you are married ;
and if you ain't you meught 'a been, twenty years
ago ; you're old enough,' (splash !)
'D n it, mind how you throw your water! Jim
Sparks is a trilling dog if I have got a wife Bet
sy, she is going fast,' ,
'Goin' what; !' asked Betsy, striking the water
'Confound your paddle ! caB't you keep it still ?
Providence is goiu' to'take her home, Betsy she's
dwindled away to a shadder, with that cough and
one thing and another. : She ain't long for this
world,' he added mournfully ; 'and if you, , Betsy,
will only mako up your mind the devil take that
peddle ! you'll turn over the boat and throw me
in the river ! make up your mind lo step into her
shoes, it looks like it would sort o' reconcile me to
lose her' and here a tear leaked out of each cor
ner of the Captain's .eyes. ; ;
'Oh Captain," said Betsy, half shutting one eye,
and looking quizzical ; 'thar's so many good look
in' young fellers about, I hate to give 'em up. 1
like you Captain, but thar's Bill Edwardsteand Jet
Wailis, and Jim Sparks, asdV- i
'Good lookinT and 'Jet Wailis' and 'Jim Sparks!

'Gall !' replied Suggs, with dignity, -did you ever

my shoulders ? and the sword that Governor Bag.
by give me, with the gold crabbard a-hangin .
Just at this moment ft step was heard, and before
theCaptajn and Betsy had recovered from the
shock" of the Intrusion, Sheriff Ellis' stepped into
the boat.snd asserted that Suggs 'was his priso
ner T '
'Treed at last V said the Cfaplalnj 'bui It's no
use fretfni"; the ways of Providence is mysterious.
But whar did you cross, Ellis V ' .
"Oh, I knew you'd be about the old lick 'log,fish
ln' with Betsy, I'll turn the kunoo loose.'and Bets
"will take us across.' I crossed at Hambrick's fer
ry left my horse on t'other side, and cum down on
you, like a mink on a settin' hen. Come ! come !

' A few yarn's Wow thfe boat landing, there grew
out of the bank,' an immense Water-oak, projecting
over the river, at an angle of about forty-five. A
hugo muscadine vine enwrapped the oak in tilery
part, its branches and tendrils covering it like net
work. Tlie grVpes were now riKJ, and hung over
th river " '-; :i '.-!... . .

'D n the grapes !' Said Suggs, angrily; 'let us

'Keep cool,' said the Sheriff, 'I'll fill my pockets
'Be in a hurry, they, and if you will gather the
d d things, reach up and pulldown them big
6unches, up thar' pointing to some fine clusters
higher than the Sheriff could reach, as he stood
up in the boat 'pull the vines down to you !'
The Sheriff tried, but the vines resisted his ut
most strength : so crying 'steady !' he pulled him
self up clear of the boat, and began to try to estab
lish a footing iunonj the foliage.
At this moment Captain Suggs made no remark
orally, but bis eye said to Betsy, as plainly as eye
could talk, 'hit her a lick back, my gall !'
Silently the paddle went into the water, Betsy
leaning back, with lips compressed, and in a sec
ond, the canoe shot ten feet out from the tree, and
the Sheriff was left dangling among the vines !
'Stop your blasted jokes!' roared the oSicer.
'Keep cost, old Tap-my-shoulder !' thar's jist the
smallest grain of a joke in this here, that ever you
seed. It's the coldest sort of airnest.'
'What shall I do? How shall I get out of this?'
asked Ellis, piteouMy.
'Let all go, drop in the water, and swim out,'
was the reply.
'I can't swim a lick how deep is it ?'
Suggs seemed to ruminate, and then repliec
'From say fifteen yes, at least, fifteen to a
bout twenty-live feet. Ugly place ?'
'Great God,' said poor Ellis, 'you certainly won't
leave me here to drown my strength is failing
'If I don't,'.said the Captain, most emphatically,
'I wish I may be landed into a thousand foot h II,'
and saying a word to Betsy, they shot rapidly a
cross the river. '
Kissing his companion as he stepped out of the
boat Suggs sought Button who was tied in a thick'
et, near by, and mounting pursued his homeward
way. . -
'JVerer despair ' he said to himself, as he jogged
along 'never despair-! Honesty, a bright watch
out, a hand in your fingers and one in your lap,
with a little grain of help from Providence, will al
ways fetch a man through ! Never despair ! I've
been hunted and tracked and dogged like a cussed
wolf, but the Lord has purvided, and my worst in-
any has tuck a tree ! Git up Button, you blasted,
flop eared injun !'
. THE TWO SEXES. .
The following true and elegant paragraphs are
txtraeted from an article by Mrs. Sigourusy,whose
mind is the dwelling of light and beauty.
"Man might be initialed into the varieties of nee
dle work; taught to have patience With the feeb
leness and waywardness of infancy, and to Bteal
with noiseless step about the chamber of the sick ;
and woman might be instructed to contend for the
paha of science; to pour forth eloquence in Senates
or to " wade thro' fields of slaughter to a throne."
Yet revoltings of the soul would attend this vio
lence to nature V this abuse of physical and intel
lectual energy, while the beauty of social order
would be defeated and the fountains of earth's fe
licity broken up.
"We arrive, therofore, at the conclusion. Tlie
sexes are intended for different spheres, and con
structed in conformity with their respectives desti
nations, by him who bids the oak brave the fury
of the tempest and Alpine flower lean its cheek on
the bosom of eternal snows. But disparity does
not necessarily imply inferiority. The high places
of the earth with their pomp and glory, are indeed
accessible only to the march of ambition or the
grasp of power ; yet those who pass with faithful
and unapplauded zeal though their humble round
of duty, are unnoticed hf the 'Great Task Master's
eye,' and their endowments, though accounted
poverty, amongn, prove durable riches iu tlie
kingdom of Heaven. -
A ROYAL ROMANCE.
At the gfand and brilliant ball given by Prince
Schwartzberg, the Austrian Ambassador at Paris,
in the year MO, in celebration of the marriage of
Napoleon with Maria Louisa, at which the Emper
or and illustrious persons were present, it is well
known that a most destructive fire broke out in one'
of the temporary buildings erected for the occasion
by which the young and beautiful hostess and scv
eral other jiersons were burnt to1 death; and many
seriously injured. One of the visiters at this ba'l
was the then Dowager Duchess, of Savoy Carig
nan, mother of Charles Albert, ex-King of Sard -nia.
This lady, prevented bv the ereat confusion
from getting out in time, found herself in one of
the saloons burning on all sides. When in this
most perilous situation, and almost snffoeated, she
was accidentally discovered by her courier, who
resolutely rushed through the flames into the room,
took his mistress in his arms and jumped from a
window on the first floor to the ground. By this
heroic conduct he broke both his legs, but Ills' '
Duchess was unhurt. Her life having been thus
miraculously saved through the courage of her cou
rier, she, of course, paid him all possible care and
attention during his illness ; and when he had re
covered from his accident she married him. lis re
ceived afterward from some Italian Prince the till
of Count Moutelart ; and ever since they have been
living together, but not very happily, in farioui
parts of the Continent, and are now in Paris. -

REMARKABLE CASE OF FECUNDITY,
Four childreh at a bikth. Mrs. Moore wife
of David Moore residing at No. 139 Washington
Market Place, Southwark, (Shippen treet, be-
twcea Crab and Fifth north side,) yesterday gave
birth to four children! The infants are all boya.ar.d
they are as fine, pretty and healthy-looking babies
as were almost ever seen. One was born about 10
o'clock, A. M., and another about noon, the third
about i P. M.nd the fourth about 1 in the evening.
The third child was delivered dead: the others alive.
and the latter are as lively and natural to-day as
many Infants a month old.
The children are all as near the same size as
could well be imagined, weighing each about five
pounds. Thus it will be perceived that they are
as big as the average run of children at the ord!
nary single births. The three that are living ex
hibit every symptom of thriving and doing well.
The condition of the mother is astonishingly fav
orable, and the physician and nurse anticipate no
danger from the painful and protracted parturition
she has passed through, nnder cirenmtance so ex- j
traordinary. Her accoucheur is Dr. A. IL Graham.
On enquiry, we find the case to be a remarkable
one. The mother Is a woman about 29 years of
age, a natiye of Ireland. She has had two hus
bands. Her first husband, whose name was Bell
was an Irishman; and a middle aged man. She
was married to him about ten years ago. Her
present husband, to whom she was married about
nine months since, is a young man, only 21 years
old. , He is a carpenter by trade, but is now en
gaged in bottling, and. keeps a little shop where ha
resides. , '. - - . .
Mrs. Moore had six children by her former hus
band, at three births. At the first birth she was
delivered of two a boy and a gi rl. The boy is liv
iqgraud is now eight year of age. At tlie sec
ond birth, hc was delivered of a single child a
girl which ta living. At the third birth she had
triplets two boys and a girl.. The girl still ur-
vives, and is five year of age. The surviving
children are hearty, and some of them have sur
vive severed attacks of malignant disease.' '
' The case is an interesting one to the physiolo
gist and the scientific and medical men. , It has
created a great aensatic among the residents of
the imrmxliate vicinity of its occurrence, and the
house of the parents hat all day, been run. down
with female visitors, while excited and curiuus'
crowd of men have blocked up the- sidewalk, in
front of the door. As the new spreAd, people from
every part of Southwark and the souther section
of the city geneially, have flocked to the pfaee to
gratify thoir eager curiosity ; and numbers who

CALVIN MORGAN, ALIAS JACK SHEP-
PARD, AGAIN ON THE RUN.
We have just been informed that this notorious
personage, after his late escape from the Theatre
here, made tracks to Petersburg, and from thenc
to North Carolina, where he joined a Circus com
pany, as a driver, and returned to the "Cockade."
From there, he paid a visit to his wife in Charles
Citycounty,-remained a few days, and -then, in
Company wilh his"better half," set off for a neigh
boring wharf on the river, intending doubtless to
emigrate to more genial climes. On nearing the
place of final departure, Calvin discovered a large'
number of persons gathered about the steamboat,
and having an aversion to "crowds,"' ordered the
driver to take him to th next wharf, about a milo
further down. But in the manoeuvre he wa rath
er slow, for a free negro standing by recognised -him,
and gave the word, when several men, armed
with fowling pieces, started to overtake and arrest
him. r Morgan's good lady had kept her eyes skirt-
nsd, and on suspecting the Intentions bf the pur--
suers, gave berlord the wink, wheat once jumped
from the vehicle and calling on hii ,'?gs to do duty
made track far a neighboring swamp. Seme of
the pursuers, finding it impossible to overtake the
scoundrel by flight, fired at him, and tlie probability
is that he was cverely if not mortally wundedia
hi hat, which fell at the crack of the gun, wat
well punctured with shot; but he was not to be s
easily stopped. The sUngmg be had received" only
added vefocity to hi qieed, and after a few more
bounds, having gained the swamp, his pursuers
aw ao more of him. Diligent search wa then,
made to discoveMhe hiding place of tlie desperado?
but aftsr (pending seven bouta in fruitless search,
the pursuit was abandoned. : - ,. 'rx .
