BwiLLOWiSfl ax India?! ?In the early set tlement of Cherokee, Georgia, prior to the fe moral of the aborigines, in uiany cases in the Superior Court* of the various counties, either one or more ot the parties were Indiana. Tho first Solicitor General of the Cherokee Circuit waa. at the time we speak of. a young lawyer, who hiul but lately removed beyond the Chatta hoochee from one of the older counties of the State, lie has since received from hid fellow citizens offices of honor?having represented them frequently in the Congress of the United States. and serrod on the Judicial Bench. Among the Indiuns who gave great trouble to the courts, w?s a notorious old vagabond, re joicing in tho name of Swallow?a drunken, quarrelsome old scoundrel, everlasf ingly on the civil or criminal docket. On a certain occasion, he was the defendant in a cause tried before a jury The evidence having been submitted and the jury charged, they retired and soon after came in with a verdict, whioh was handed to the Solicitor. Now, the reader will be good enough to bear in mind that the Solicitor was of an excitable temperament, and whenever unduly exercised he invariably stammered and " stuck." On thia occasion, ha began to read: " We, the jury, find that the said defendant, ?wallow, an ladiau''? Here, aa our friend. Billy Martin, would say, the Solioitor's mouth " bungjire," and he trud ?gain : ?* We, the jury, find that the aaid defendant, Swailow, an Indian '?and here there was another refusal to " go off." The eyes of the whole court. Judge, jury, lawyers, and spectators, were upon the Solici tor, who was by this time t4in a sweat." Just here Jim H , who sat almost under hiLt, looked up and enquired, in an audible roico : " And did be do it?" " Ynt, he did V was the Solicitor s indignant reply " Then, ' aaid Jim, " I think the punishment was unlawful?it was both cruel and unusual." Augusta Dispatch.
