Whon tb? old frigate Brandywuia lay at Gibraltar, the then American Consul. Mr Snrague. cam# on board with a man who wish* e?l to join the ship, and after none nrssnltiL Uon, said man was roeeired by the caputs as a ?ort of steward, he having agreed to work fbr hh passage and board, and aomo slight consideration besides. His name was Joe Lattit. and fh- wi- a .regular specimen nf the strolling Yankoe; bat he dressed well, and was remarkably good-looking, though there was in his face a peculiar look, which indi cated that he preferred fun to sound ma, ?!? }?w, however, that the fun bad some sense in it. The moment I placed my eyes upon the man, I knew that I had seen him before, and when I had an opportunity to apeak with him, 1 found that he had been a perfomer of leg erdemain and ventriloquism in tho United States, and there I bu seen him. He had traveled through England. France, and a part of Spain, with hi* implement* of deception and had just brought up at Gibraltar wbert our ship came In He brought his whole kit on board iu a large chest, which he got per mission to stow ia his bed-room, where it would be kept perfectly dry. He had quite a pile of money, wbieh he placed in the purser n hands for safe keeping, but he would tell none of us how much. But be was liberal and open-hearted, and it was not long before the crew blessed the hour that brought him on board fbr he was the veTy rotil of wit and humor. At length our ship went to Port Mahoa. and here our Yankee tars were at home. Oae pleasant morning a party of "us went on shore, and Joe Lattit was among our numbdr. Jee was dressed in a perfect shore rig, and ap peared a gentleman of consequence. Near the middle of the forenoon, a few of us entered a cafe, and the only occupant beside the keeper was a Spanish officer, evidently an infantry captain, from hie dress. We called for wine, and had it served upon a table next to the oae at which the officer sat, Joe seating himself so that his back came against the back of the Spaniard; but he did not notice, when he sat down, how close be would be. Our laugh and jest ran high, and just as Joe said something more than usually funny, he threw himself back, and thereby hit the Span iard with suck forcc as to cause him to spill a glass of wine upon his bosom. The fellow leaped to bis feet, but before Joe could beg pardon for the unintentional mishap, he oon^ mcnced a torrent of oaths and invective, part ly in Spanish and partly in broken Euglisb. His language was so abusive that Joe s tem per was up in a moment, ana instead of ask ing pardon as he had lutended, be surveyed the raring man from head to foot and taen said; f. * ?. Go oh. sir. Your language is beautiful very beautiful, indeed, fur a geatleuian." ''Ah. you call me no ^.-^tccluian, eh?*' < uttered the Spaniard in a towering passion. i " If I were going to call you. I sb mid call , you a jackass' calmly "Kiid contemptuously uttered Joe. " Aha-a-ah half growled the Spaniard, j rolling hid black eyes wildly and furiously. Now by Santa Maria, you shall answer tor i that. 1 a in genteel man ' But you?you?one | lfctle cursed puppy I Ah-a-ah 1 Now y<ni shall fight Joe would have laughed the matter off, but he found that the captain was deteiraioed to tight, and st length ho resolved Vwotimmo date hint. The keej?er of the cafe called me to one side, and informed me that the ofiicer was Captain Antonia Dim r, one of the most notorious duelists in the place?that he was ttlways quarrelsome when un let- tie iufluenoe of liquor, at 1 that his companion* always left him alono rither than have a fuss witivbiiu " Not five minutes beftire you came fn." arlded the keeper ** four of his fellow left him beqau*c they saw he was ripe fur a fuss. So younad belter get your i'rjend away " I'pulled Joe away, aud tcld' him all that had juat been told me, but he only smiled, und assured mc that there Was nothing to lear. I felt sure at once, from bis very man ner.'that he had some safe fun in hi- head, and I let him go. ' My nauio is Joseph Latti, sir?a citizen of the I'nitod States, and General of the Older of Sublime Darkness," said Joe, pompously, turning to the Spaniard. 44 Tour name, sir "" '* Antonie Bixar, Captain in Her Moet Oath lie Majesty's seventh regiment of infantry. But your office, air . I don't comprehend. ^ 44 ? ?h, you would'nt know if f would tell you. I am simply general of a body of men who ha^c ?'Id themselves to the gentleman who Ijfcrns sinner* au l heretic? down here." And Joe pointed most mysteriously down towar-ls the floor as he .^poke. The Spaniard smiled a very bitter carca?tic smile- and whereupon Joe took up two large kntve* which lay upon the' bac, and t d them, one after another down hi* throat, mak ing several wry as thej t/?ok their pas sage downward. The fellow aal evidently never soen any tiling of the kind done bcfuie, for he was astounded. *' Now, sir," said Joe, making one or two more grimaces, as th-jugh he Mill felt tbe knives apm^where in the regi ju of the di*-' nhragtim: ?? you will Wait here until I go aial bring my pistols, and you shsrtl hnvo satisfie tioa. Will you wait ? ' "j can procure pistols," said the ufiijct. forgetting his astonishment and coming baok to hi< BB^er. I shall fight with my own. If you are a gentleman you.will wail hero." Joe turned to us and had us wait for him., 44 Here ! here ! O, cries f* cried the"keeper, 11 whore be my knives ?" * 4\TU pay you for ?q? when l c?i? back.' said Joe, and then he beckoned for jne to some out. I did so, and he torfk the knive*? >ne from his bosom and the other fh in hia ileovc?and told me to keep them till he re turned. It seenu that Joe found a boat ready to tuke aim off to the "hip at once, for he was not roue )vnr three-quarters of an hour, and when ho :amo back lie had two superbly mounted pi*. x>ls with him. Me loaded them with powder ' !n tho presence of the Spaniard, and then bunding him a baM,-asked him if ho would nark it so he would know it again- Ibe fellow hesitated at first, but at length ho took t with a mad gesture, and "bit'It between Ids ?eth. . *' I shall know that, muttered the Spaa ard, *? unless it is battered against your >ones.'' * itl Now ydu may select yourpiatol,u laid Jt^. The man took them* both, and ?xatniftod hem. but. he was satisfied that they w?re joth alike, and both gqjxl, and he told Jo? ae. iad no choice. So our steward put the balls n and rammed them carefully dowft. The whole party now adjuurnotl to a wide tourt, back ot the cafe, wnero twelve ftrtr narked off, and then the combatants touk heir stations. I trembled for poor Joe. fbr 1 taw not yet how he would make fun at this " Count !f' cried the Spaniard, imprticut y. ' " Onor-two?three ! The Captain fired first, and with a most de iberate aim. Joe fired into the air. Thm ih? latter walked dai?b??audy up tohiaacU|K >niat, and taking a bullet from between las' eeth he handed it to him. <k You can use it next time/ ' said Joe. The officer looked fir*t at Joe's tenth sod ben at the baU- It was surely the* same ouc hat he had put into his ristol. and now hcliaif teen his foe man take it from hio' XAuth. He eas unmistakably astounded "'Ban Peblo '" exclaimed BifM, "you us' want what you caii kyu a me t^ick. oh ' By San /ago, I shall, load the pistol myself.1 <j>o so. said Joe caUaly< and M he apoke lie handed over his powder The Spaaiard poured out an extri quantily of powder. ud baring puij -fc ^ abe wis tol, ho caIM for the rtuer. He (Ua pat in the aamc ball which 1m had used before MeAwhile Jxk hmlT t*ea loading hU own ffiitnl. '? " One moment, ' altered Jo*, reaching oat hi# hand; M the cape are in Che butt or roar pistol The follow pasted orer hi* pistol bat ha kept hi* eyes upon It. Joe opened a little sil ver spring at the ead of the batt. and true, there were tome percussion cape than. He took out the two, and having capped hie own pistol, he ftve it * tow into the air catch ing it adroitly a# it ease down, and tkeu handed back the ether to the Spaniard I had watched Joe most carefully, hat I aaw MtluB| out of the way, and yet he had eh an fed pistols wifh his foe. " NW." said he, " i n put a ball into my pistol, and then we ll he readj." He flipped so ta a thing in, which looked to me like a cartridge, bat no one else saw it. "Now^ cried the Spaniard, " let's aee rot hold Ibis in your moatn !" Again they took their stations, and Again they were ready "One?two?4hree !*' And tile Spaniard fired firat, by aw, Joe firing into tho air as before. And agaia Joa stepped forward and took the self-same ballet from his month, and h*nded at to his aatag r> nist The fellow was completely daaa?en*ti ed, and se were the rest. "Tounofireat me!" gasped the Captain. " I'll fire at you next tiaas,'' said Joe, In a tone of thunder. "Thua far I hare only showed yoa that powder and balls eaa have no effect On me. Twice hare you fired at me. with as true a pistol as was ever made, and both times hare I fired in the air. I meant that yoa should lire long enough to know that for once in yoar life yoa had seen, if not the old fellow himself, (pointing meatfly down ward,) at least one who is in his en ploy. The old gentleman will like the company of a Spanish captain of infaatry, and I'll send yoa along! Come, load up again !" But the astonished Spaniard did not aeem inclined to do so. A man who swallowed oarr ing knives as he would sardines, and who caught pistol balls between his teeth, was not exactly the man for him to deal with. While he was pondering upon what he had seea, Joe took a handful of bullets from his pocket, and began to tnas them rapidly down his throat, and whea these were gone, he picked ap half a doscn good-siaed stones, and sent them after the ballets! " Holy Santa Marie ejaculated the Span iard. M what a man *. By my soal, 'tis the devil/' Aad as be thas spoke, he tanted on his heel and harried away frem the plaee. After ha was gone. Joe beckoned for me to wire kin the knires. I did so, and then new him slip them up his eoat sleeves When we returned to the safe, he approached the keeper. " You want yoar kolres," he said Bat the peer fellow dared not speak. Joe pat his right hand to his ear, and palled ono of the long knives out. Then, from the left ear he drew the other one. The keeper cfemed him self in terror, and shrank tremblingly sway. But we finished ear wine, end baring paid for it. we tamed to go When we were alqpe he explained to me the Mrret of his pistols. They were a pair he had psed ia his legerdemain performances, and nach as all wisards use who perform trick# of satehing balls. ?e. The main barrel of the pistol had no connection whatever with the nipple for the eap ; bat what appeared to be a socket for the rammer was in fact a second barrel?to be sure smaller than the other, but jet as large as the bore of any rifle-pistil?and ?rith this secret barrel the priming-tube eon oeeted. So the appareut barrel of the weapon might ha filled with powder and balls, and no barm coald be done. When Joe first returned with his pistols, of course he had both these Foerot bores loaded with blaak charges, ead lUen the other leading was for nothing but ef [oct in appearaaee. At the aceond loading Joe bad oharged the secret barrel of hi> own pis tol. while the Spaniard had been filling up tha main barrel of his. Then, of ooarse it he tame neoeaaary to make an eacbaaga. else Bi car would have never got his weapon off As ><>on as Jot got the other pi*tol into bia posses don, and made the exchange which he cpoka rf at the time, he had oaly to prose smartly upon a tocret spring on the side of the Mock, ? nd ha had the whole charge, which the ether pat in. emptied into his band. So be had the marked ball to dispose of su he chose Ever after that, while we remained in M * ion, Joe Lattit was an object of both cariosity ind dread on shore, for an aeoouat, all eolorod <o suit the exaggerated eoncepthms of the cat'o tee per, had boon spread orer the city, and he pious Catholics there wanted nothing mora o do with such a mm.onlj to be sure to keep >n bis good humored side.
