I plij.ical lufirniitiea, ibo yunwing ul | j ltst-ase, trade him a confirmed misuii- i j thro|H.-. and doubtless had much to do j with that eccentricity which was so no j table a feature of his character, i Before leaving Washington, he learned 1 that his friend Crawford intended vis- ! itiug Georgia during the Christmas hub j idays on important business, aud as he \ lived immediately on the route (be • Georgia Senator had lu travel, he made j him agree that he would call at Roan I oko and eat his Christmas dinner. To | this. Senator Crawford * agreed ; and I true to his promise, reached Roanoke, the home of Mr. Randolph, on Christ mas eve, the 241 h ol December, 1810. The u*ual custom of those days with gentlemen traveling, was iu the old fashioned two wheeled gig. Mr. Ran dolph, Wits of course much pleased to receive so distinguished u guest. Sen ator Craw ford says he found Mr. Ran dolph was greatly improved in health since he patted with him iu Wusbingtuu city, aud in a fine flow of spirits. They sat up until a late hour, discussing the political news of the day, aud meu as Matoainou, warriors. p*ets. philosophers. On retiring to bed. Mr. Randolph said tg his distinguished friend that he had been invited to take Christmas dinner with an old and Mteemed friend, and that, be did not know whether ho (Mr. Crawford) would consent logo, they would "tide over iu the morning.”— Senator Crawford, thinking Mr. R.’s friend lived only iu the neighborhood, consented at once. At this Mr. R. bade him good night. The weather being clear but intensely cold, and Mr. Craw ford much fatigued from his ride from Washington city to Charlotte county, slept soundly. At half past throe o'clock, however. Senator Crawford was aroused from his Hlumbers by Mr. H. and a servant who informed him that he must “bo up, as it was ttiuo to atari on the road to dins." Mr. It approaobed the bod with a htrj:e bowl of strong coffee sod brandy, and said to his frieud; “Drink this, Crawford ; it will open your eyes, brace you for the rids, and give you an appe tite for your dinner." While the Sen ator wss dressing, and sipping the coffee and brandy, Johnny approached and adjusted n huge pair ©fold Enpleh spurs, of the purest metal, nd of great tje, aud artistic dchfru. The spurs on, the Senator was admonished I hail the homes were ready t the door by the ! piwing, und champing of the bn- ; at | the same time Mr K , in i>ce;ili:ir I voice lik • the mellifluous notes of a *i'- ' ver trumpet *;iid : —‘‘Crawford, all is! ready—let’s ride." The distinguished J Georgian approached the door, an 1 by the light of numerous pine torches, he saw three horses in readiness. Mr R. pointing to an immcne block stallion. • lumping, pawing, and snorting, bold J by two Stalwart uegro fellows, said •‘Crawford, mount ibst horse." Mr C. bointr a very large and corpulent ' umn. said : “Mr. Randolph, I can’t ride that horse." “Mount him, Crawford,! mount him," was tfle rfldy. Mr. C remonstrated by saying that he was nut | accustomed to horseback exercise, aud ho doubted his ability to ride that sni- j inal—pointing to the restless black stal lion. Mr. Randolph seemed irritated,' and replied sharply; “Mount sir: mount him I" Mr 0 saw that no ex cuse would J*>, and lie finally consented to mount, which he did. alter great cl- ; I forts, the stallion neighing, panting, pawing and rearing, but the negroes - h°ld him seed'dy till the ponderous Georgian got fairly and squarely in the saddle, well in the stirrups, aud the rein* well in hand. Mr 11. then mounted large bay stal liuti of high mottle, and then came forth Juba, the trusty body servant, dressed in full livery , with cocked hat aud trum | pet. Juba mounted the thoroughbred mire Trafic. Mr R. then said, iu u * dear and shrill voice: “All ready;" at ; that the negroes let loose the black stub | lion. Juba brought one long, loud blast | jon his trumpet, and the horses stood : for a moment as if poised iu mid air, 1 and then with a tremendous plunge, they started. Jilha led the way, follow j od next by Mr. 11. and the bay stallion, j then Mr. C last on the impetuous and ; hard mouthed black stud. The weather being c.J and dry, nnd the roads hard j frozen, the morning atmosphere smote 1 the face as with a shower of needles; ! and the clattering hoofs of those tho- ' roughbreds upon the hard and frozen 1 ground in the stillness of the winter. ' mmmi resounded thro' those old Virginia ! hills like the roar of a cavalry charge. I *^ r - C. being a man of great muscular power, made several efforts to slop the i headlong career of bis stalwart charger, | but the mere he pulled the faster he ran; he finally hallowed to Mr. R to 1 , slop—"slop, that he couldn't stiud it;" j j but to all of his entreaties he turned a deaf ear. and the only response he could get would be the bugle blast of Jubn J far in the van, mounted on the marc | i Trafic, who flew through the air like un j arrow. Every time Juba blowed the! j trumpet tlic black stud rati faster and • faster, until the corpulent Georgian fob j j that nil was lost. i But on they sped, until nearing the | I flat lands of tho Staunton river, when j (he cry of hounds was heard. And to j 'he leil Mr. Crawford cast his eye, be- ; I held an immense pack streaming around the hills toward the Christmas riders j I Übi came the houndi, and o,i went the j horsemen. Soon the Staunton river I came in foil view, which for the mo { i meut. promised great relief to Mr. Craw- , j ford, of Georgia. Consequently he • ■ watched Juba and, considerably j in the advance, as they neared the tur bid und hnimiryg river. Rut as Juba I and the marc struck the river bank, to | the great mortification aud disgust of I Mr. Crawford, in they went; then fob I lowed Mr. Randolph on the mottled bay | I stallion; and finally, Mr. Crawford felt j that all hope was now gone, nnd with a . secret reservation to make one more | desperate effort to check the wild career of his mighty pulled with i j all the power of a giaut; but il was not i of the slightest consequence, for the j first plunge that the black stud made he j was in swimming water. | By this time Mr. Randolph's full I pack of hounds had caught the party, nnd wore swimming and yelping as though they were within fifty yards ot a wounded stag or a real fox The cur rent of the river was rapid, nnd the wa ter intensely cold, and while swimming aud drifting to the other bank, the thought and hope struck Mr. Crawford j that the ride for the balance of their trip would be at their leisure. Hence it was fhal Mr. Crawford w tched again witii no little anxiety, Juba und the mure, still nearing the opposite hank, when, to his horror, as the mare ascen ded the bank, Juba again brought n blast or two on his trumpet; the mare switched the water from her flaxen tail, and on she went—Mr. Randolph second, and Mr 0. aud the black atud third. — The bounds having an even start From the south side of the river, kept up with the Christinas party, aud iu full , cry us though they were on tho warm- I est trail. Soon a second pack joined j the first pack, and so on for every few i miles u new pack would join tho chor- j us. and on they went. Finally Juba | aud the mure quit tho road and struck | out through the fields, followed by Mr. ' U and Mr. C. across gullies, ditches, j over fences, through briars, poods. I crooks, aud every thing that obstructed a straight Hug. At last relief came, for the party reached Col. Barksdale's about one o’clock. Mr. C- Was greatly exhausted, and his panta having slipped above his kneee, his legs were scratched by the briars, bruised by fence rails and sap lings, and chafed no little by tho stir rup leathern. The premises were throng ed with half a dozen packs of hounds that had joined the Christmas party on the route. Tho distinguished guests wore received with much satisfaction and great consideration. The old-fesh ieeed Virginia gentry were present io full force. The first thing that greet- I t*d the visitors on their entrance info ; 'he tnuUMon, after the usual solutions and introductions wuh an immense sil ver bowl lull to interflowing with hot; 1 apple toddy. While Mr. Crawford en- j ! joyed the warm toddy, yet ho was auf- ) , for mg greatly from ilm terrible morning ride; still, neither Mr Randolph nor j | any uf the party made any allusion to ,it Dinner being announced. Mr. (’raw - ! ford found much d lßculty in getting tu , the table, still there was no allusion I jmidt*(olhe morning ride.
