The Volunteer Cnutisel.
John Taylor was licensed, when a
youth of twenty-one, to practieo at the
bar. lie was poor, but was well edu
cated, nnd possessed extraordinary ge
nius. He married a beauty, who alter
ward desetted him for another.
On the Oth ofApril, 1810, the Court
House in Clarks ville, Texas, was crowd
ed to overflowing. An exciting ease
was to be tried. George Hopkins, a
wealthy planter, had otfeicd n gros
insult to Mary KllUon, tho young nnd
beautiful wife ol his overseer. The
husband threatened to chastise Mmol
for tho outrage, when Hopkins went I
to Ellison's housu and shot him in his
own door. Tho murderer was arrested
and bailed to answer the charge. This
occurrence produced great excitement,
and Hopkins, in order to tut it the tide
ol popular indignation, had circulated
reports against her character, and sho
had sued him for slander. Uotli suits
were pending lor murder ami slander,
' The interest became deeper when it
became known that Ashlcc aud Pike,
of Arkansas, and S S. Prentiss, of New
Orleans, by enormous fees, had been
retained to defend Hopkins. Hopkins
was acquitted. Tho Texas lawyers
were overwhelmed by their opponents,
It was a fight of dwaifs against giants,
Tho slander suit was for the pth,nnd
the throng of spectators grew in num
bers as in excitement. Public opinion
was setting in for Hopkins; his money
had procuted witnesses who served
his powerful advocates. When the
slander caso was called, Mary Ellison
was left without an attorney nil had
"Havo you no counsel i" inquired

"Xo sir; thoy havo all deserted me,
and I am too poor to employ any
more," replied tho beautiful Mary,
bursting into tears.
"In such a case will not some chiv
alrous member of the profession volun
teer ?" said tho Judge, glancing around
tho bar. The thirty lawyers were si
lent. "I will, your honor," said a voice
from the thickest part ot tho crowd,
from behind the bar.

Ho drew a picturo of murder in such
appalling colors that in comparison

and looking niter their own interests.
Thualaim wiihii light in n house of

utes alter they were killed, nnd must
say they wero tho worst shot men I
over saw. No onu prctcud-t to know
who shot thoni, but there uro n few
hero who do know and don't ask any
questions. A few moments alter the
killing, some parties friendly to Pat
Malally gave out word that tho town
