How Jeff. Davis Went Oat to Cowhide a
Wisconsin Hoy and How he Didn't Io it.
From the Milwaukie Sentinel, Xov. 8.
It id probably $nowu to but very few
prestJtcitien f our State that
Wisconsin has the high distinction of
bavins given Mr, JeSerson Davis, ex
rresident of the ex-Confederate States,
his first public whipping.
'It should be remembered that Master
Jeff- was educated for the army at the
expense of the Government he so un
gratefully betrayed, and entered the ser
vice as a lean, lank, overbearing Lieu
tenant, and was stationed at .Port llow
ard and Fort Winnebago about the years
1829 to 1831. In 1830 or 1831 he was
stationed at tho . latter post, where the
circumstances we are about to relate oc
curred. For a year or two previous a
Buck-eye boy named Stewart a full
sized, well-built, muscular man, as good
natured as aa elephant had beeu in the
crrfploy of Judge Arndt, of Green Bay,
in building what were called Mackinaw
boats, with which most of the river
transportation was done. At the time
we speak of, Stewart was engaged in me
chanical works at Fort Winnebago, where
Davis was stationed.
Jeff, in the meantime, had become en

upon Stewart, and he swore by all the j

A Fearful Invention. The Vallo
jo Chronicle of the 30th ult., gives the
following account of tho invention of a
young man of that city: .
Thomas Hill, Esq., a young mechanic
of this place, has constructed models of
two inventions which he proposes to pat
ant. He has constructed a hollow steam
ram for' perforating ironclads or other
vessels in time of war." It punches a hole :
is the sides of a vessel under water
sixteen inches ia diameter, is immediatly
withdrawn, and a shell or torpedo ean
then be fired through the hollow cylin
der. 'The utter destruction of an appos
ing vessel is insured. The machinery
works by steam, and the ram is designed
to be driven out sixteen feet with a strik
ing force equal to 3,000 tons, when after
penetrating the vessel, it will bj immedi
ately withdrawn. A vessel could be
honeycomcd below the water lino so full
of holes that it would be imposible to pre
vent sinking. A careful examination of
the model assures us that it will accom
plish the purposes sought for, if such a
destructive weapon of war should ever be
built. Ijt. is intended to be fitted into an
iron-clad, double screw propeller of pe
culiar model. This gentleman has also
invented a double-action oscillating steam

dead points. The valve-gearing is very
simple in operation, and the whole ar
rangement of parts is nicely adjusted to
save space without loss of power.. 1he
engines are adapted particularly tor a
double-screw vessel. . Mechanics and
steam engineers who have examined the
model approve of its mechanism,' and be
lieve for the proposes designed that it

erea or Beard, also known as the Jeoo-
ma Occidenlalis, and called in Oregon
the wood rat. A full grown rat is often :
nine inches in length from tip of tioso to
base of tail, while the tail adds about as
much more to its length.-0 Its hair is
soft, gray on the back, and white on the
belly, ears short but broad, and round
tail, bushy 4t the tip. It is the worst

tnat toe! low born plebeian would never
dare tp resist, a high-born Southerner,
but would crouch and take all he might
see fit to lay on, and so, providing himself
with a good cow-hide, he watched his op
portunity. The desired occasion was not long de
layed. " One ' evening, after the day's
work wa? ended, as Stewart was walking
icf front of the fort, Davis came out and
without ceremony bejran to lay it on.
But he found, as he did in the rebellion, not stop to consider whether what he
. i . . , . . - . i i ... . ..
steals is valuable or not. Many strange
stories are told concerning its stealing
! nails, candles, &c, and bringing back in
j return manure and all sorts of offal. Its
operations often have the appearance more
of having been the result of a desire to be
employed than anything' else. Qri one
occasion, J. Alden Smith, of this office,
says, he had standing in his office . in
Clear Creek county half a keg of nails,
containing three sizesT and duiing a sin
gle night these rats took out all the nails
and piled them -up on the floor in 'three
piles, each size by themselves. The same
animals night after night, brought in
heaps of manure from an out-housc.
But even a stranger trick was performed
in the house of .Mr. Hale on Tuesday
night. On going to bed he placed his
false teeth on the bureau. In the
morning the teeth were gone, and a raw
potato left ia their place. After a long
search, tearing off the weather-boarding
in several places, they were found in the
nest of one of these xate. lhe rat had
started to -carry off the potato but find
ing the teeth took them and left the po
tato. : , . -
that thero were two parties to the con
troversy, A blow or two was sufficient
to arouse the lion, and Stewart, as he
turned upon him, planted his left digits
under, Jeff's right ribs, and his right one
under his left ear, and knocked him end
over end. Stewart was not a professional
pugilist, and did not wait for his adver
sary to ristf, but pounced upon him like a
tiger, arid laying Jeff" s wrists side by side
on his chest, held them both as in a vice
with his1 left hand, and kept his" right
hand ready for further action. Poor Da
vis, half 'dead from the twa sledge-hammer
blows he had received, squirmed and
twisted in vain. There he was, fast as
though he had been in the iron arms of
a guillotine, and at the mercy of his ad
versary." By this time Stewart had be-'
ome quite cool, and told Davis he de
served a good pounding; "but," said he,
"if you will take back what you have
said about me, and agree to let me alone,
I will let you up without further injury ."
NcJ, he would never do any such thing.
Then Stewart began to slap Jeff's, face
first on this side and then on the other,
and. then repeated his demand for the
pledge, and Jeff, again refused. Then
he pulled his nose and twisted it, and
slapped - his face some more. In the
. meantime the garrison was all astir, and
General, , then Major, Twiggs, the same
that" went over to the rebellion with his
whole .command of United States troops
etatiorred in Texas, a giant of a man
physically, standing about six feet six,
and of full proportions, but a confessed
coward withal, came out and peremptorily
ordered Stewart to let Davis up, an order
which,' as commander of the fort, he could
have, executed summarily if he had the
pluck to do it. Stewart replied that he would
not let him up an inch till he apologized
and promised4to keep the peace, and eaid
he, AMajor, you can't make -me doit;
andf -job -want to take a hand in this
fight, Justify it on,4and I will whip you
1 and your whole garrison it you will bring
j out your men in squads of not more than
j si iflime," And then he went on
manipulating Jeff's, cheeks and nose and
ears and repeating.. his demands for "in
demnity for the past and security for the
future' while Twiggs looked on in mute
astonishment at the audacious pluck of the
Yanked Jwtbuilder'v . Jeff., seeing no way
to escape; either by bluster, main strength,
or the interference of the Major, conclu
ded to accept tbe situation, took all back
and promised to treat Stewart as a gentle
man, '-and "was let up, remarking, as he
went away, : that lie never received such
- blows from man or horse ; and probably
he never did again till another Buckeye
boy me tTSuiln' another wilderness. He
said he felt as if he had been kicked by
a mule. Jeff, should have, remembered
that lesson, and never again presumed, as
he did in getting up the rebellion, upon
a Yankee's holding still to be kicked.
The writer of this article did not wit
ness this "interesting fight, but was well
acquainted jrith Stewart, and. received
, " the foregoing account of the affair from
his own mouth soon after the occurrence,
as well as from the lips of others who

The Idle Man. This individual is
an annoyance nuisance.: He is an in
truder in the busy thoroughfare of every

push him contemptuously aside. He is
no advantage to anybody. .., He annoys

He is a cypher, in society. He may
have an income ; to support him in idle

friends. .But in either case he is
despised. Young men,; form habits of
