REMINISCENCE. | WRITTEN FOR THE STAR?BY JAMRM LITTLE.] On a certain occasion, about five yearn ago, in Judge '* court, (we mean Squire ' magistrate'* office,) which had the diatinguijhed honor to hold itadiurnnl and nocturnal <ie?.?ions aomewhere within the 'legal precinc'a rtre -county of Washington, waa performed, for the first time, in thi* city, as the manager* aay. a serio-comic burletta, rich in incident, and replete with wit and humor. All the ilramntif p*r.*onrr who figured in this judicial VAtia*agnus* are noil Kuuwn IU inemseiVt.?, II not to the community; and, therefore, without farther orchestral preliminary, we will ring up and go on. It was the first day of April, a significant lay in the calender, and our representative of the sword and scales was seated on his bench in the efficient exercise of his functions, wh^n an exasperated scion of the memorable Ham rushed in, all boiling with hi* wrongs, and charged another twig of the "ebo-shin and guiard-fooC ancestor with having threatened to flick him. The Judge, in the exuberance of his forensic wisdom, immediatelj issued a I nited States warrant, (the Government oaid. aj. and paid well, too. f<fr all sorts of United States warrant! in those golden days,) charging the defendant with having on the first day of April, in the county aforesaid, with malice prepense, threatened to flick hiin. the complainant, against the peace and quiet of the <ioverninent of the United States. The Judge had hardly affi xed the J P. to his sign-manual when a dozen hungry constables simultaneously clutched at the precious document, knocking urer the inkstand, which emptied its turbid contents upon the upper portion of his honor's trousers The warrant, which had been directed to any qualified constable, was finally, after a desperate struggle, secured by the strongest official, and this victor, with his sjoil. immediately left the office, and presently fp111 rnArl hrintvin# tKa ano p.q.I ui , VI tugiu^ > UW ?VV anvu , T* U'J IUOIOIOU upon a trial in.-tanter At this crisis of affairs, the r>ootor, who generally practiced at the bt+r in Judge s circuit, came into court, and hi3 invaluable services were instantly secured for the defence As all the parties were present and ready for trial, the ca&e was opened; and xinid profound silence was read the charge, to which the defence pleaded not guilty The Doctor now rooe. with the bearing of the immortal Webster when about to argue an intricate law-point before the Supreme Court of the United States, and addreesing old basin-head, (for suoh was the nam de plume of our modern Mansfield,) said : ' May it please the court: The prisoner at the bar stands, or rather sits, charged before this honorable tribunal?I will not say solemn tribunal, because that obese constable there ha." his hat on?charged with having threatened to flicl-t-o f-l-i-c-k, to flick, that ii the I verb?the man upon whose information and I _ l l 1 C I I u?ia ion cnarge nas ue?u preierreu ?>ow, eir, this strange accusation is, on the very face of it, and in the manner of its sateineut, futile, imbecile, and without any foundation either in law or in equity; and I here, in this inceptive I etage of the investigation, pronounce it untenable and without even the inoet remote coruscation of meaning. I have never, in all my extensive reading, met with the word flick. Would your honor, therefore, vouchsafe to intimate in what edition of your vocabulary may be found the word flick '?for it is a singular fact that in the forty-odd thousand words of which the F.mrlink linraam is cnmnnutrf thia B B B [ 1 word does Dot appear in any of tbe ten classifications I have searched the records of antiquity, dived to the very bottom of belles lettr<*. raosacked, ay. ransacked all the archives <>f learning, and I cannot find that the word flick belongs to aDy language which was ever spoken by the human tongue Let us see how it would conjugate as a verb active-transitive, which part of speech it is intended to be used in this warrant. I Jiicl him, thou fiicktut him, he JticJLs him. Now let us hear how it will eound in Latin, the language of scholars. Flico, flic**,Jlieat?-Jlifmmus, totalis, fli cant. It is evident that to conjugate this verb through all its moods, tenses, participles, gerunds and supines, would certainly break ordisloeate any ni?n,a i a w. Krmnr At All fiTAfltJI chiisa him tn stutter for the remainder of his natural existence. The fact is, sir, I am really at a loss to understand anything at all about the application of this mystical exotic. Perhaps your honor's literary penetration and sagacity may throw some illumination upon this benighted subject, and enable you to classify the word in question, and define its meaning. I pauue for your honor's ecclaircisstment. ' I will state," replied his honor, '-that although I am not blessed with learning, and indeed I might say that I now apeak without education, yet': If your honor will permit me, I will state that a similar event occurred in Balaam's time." interrupted the doctor. 4,Yet," continued the *oi dixant imbodiment of jurisprudence, "common sense teaches that flic* meaus flog." " Then, sir, jour preceptor jis an egregious an ase as jour honor, et BaJaami* ajtinns erat nuUor judex. Your honor, I believe, is not acquainted with the classics." * No, but I am familiar with the scriptures,'' responded the exponent ot transient judiciaU." ' In that ca?e jour honer rnu't perfectly understand the allusion which I hare ju?t made to a certain long-eared quadruped, an account ?>f the colloquial ability of which may be found ?.i that portion of the Bible denominated Numbers. I decidedly incline to the opinion that there was a <ad mistake made when you were placed on the bench, for you were evidently cut out for the desk; and, consequently, as your knowledge of law U confined solely to the Moeaic jurisprudence. which hai no bearing at iui upon the caae at issue, I insistthat you will immediately, II dov sooner, ouiarge my cueni, and 1st biiu go flickering on the wings of Kb?qr" Here the doctor paused, and, after removing from his face the excretions caused by the action of the cuticalar pores, looked inquiringly at the bewildered justice, who, with a knowing smile, declared : ' Wbj, doctor, you hare just used the word flickering yourself." 4 Fltelert nr.

The doctor delivered thia response with a bearing that convinced all present of the profound ignuraD'-e of the oourt "Well, doctor, I believe after all that you are right: and m you have shown that there fa no aucn word aa flick, thia warrant must fall, I r *L # MTm f ---- ?

Mf "THE tOCNG WARRIOR*." [WRITTBI r<)B THE STAR.] Far the substantial accuracy of the following story I can truly vouch, a* one of the parties is intimately known to me. The tragic scene, while it affords a true development of the in- j dividual suffering and horrors incident to war, especially to border wars, discloses traits of youthful courage and presence of mind eminently worthy of public record : "Towards the close of the late war with in 1 a - * ... m icm oriinm, in tou or 1314, when ttie American arm? had been m> far victorious as to nlarm and intimidate the Indians on the frontier, they acceded to a proposition to meet Ameri< can Commissioners at Greenville, Ohio, for the purpose of making a treaty of peace, and of indemnities The British authorities in Canada, learning the intelligence of this contemplated Convention, became anxious to prevent as many of the tribes disposed to attend it as pose:ki~ e?J-: ? ? - ** * A aiuio nuui uuiiig su. ror mis purpose tnej detached a force of Canadian savages, commanded by a F re nth Canadian officer, whose object was to intercept a tribe of American Indians and overawe tnem from proceeding to (ireenville. This scheme soon became known to the military authorities of the United States on the frontier. They promptly ndopted measured to counteract the project of the enemy. They selected a lad about sixteen years of age, (who was afterwards a Paymaster in the Army, to which place he was promoted : ho died in Detroit. October 21st, l&ill.) the son of a respected native of this country, who had enjoyed the conGdence and good-will of the Indians all his life The father hnving died, they transferred their attachment to tiie son. This boy, ; l i < - * _ ? - muiing miuxeu wun a scalping knife, tomahawk, market and ammunition, engaged as his companion a half-breed, the nephew of the Canadian commander of the hostile Indian force, somewhat older than himself, and proceeded from Detroit to visit the friendly Indians and to induce them, by hi' hereditary influence, to proceed on their mission to (ireenville, as well a* to warn them again.-t the meditated attempt of the enemy to intercept them. The twu lad.' marched with celerity, umidst trying dangers and difficulties They passed a Pottawatomie village, with the aboriginal inhabitants of which the American lad was a great favorite. These Pottawatomies were aware of the movement of the Canadian Indians, and after the two lads had left, in pursuit of the business which they had been dispatched. they became apprehensive that their youthful favorite and his companion might be massacred bv the hostile force, anrl thArwfnrA ?ent a number of their warriors after them for the purpose of affording them protection. Before the generous allies overtook them, the two boj* had began to cross a river in a eanoe. and on the opposite shore of which had just descried a detachment of the savage enemy But it was too late ' They were ordered by the Canadian commander of the detachment to como on ?hore and surrender themselves. Fuigmng submission, our young heroes, as they approached the enemy, whose commander was advancing towards them alone, came to the determination to sell their lives dearly, and not to be taken alive, if captured at all. They formed the plan of walking up as near as possible with safety to the Canadian officer and shooting him dowu on the spot, each pledging himself to the other to fire simultaneously. As they came near to him the half-breed discovered that the officer was his uncle. For a moment he fluttered: but reinspired by the determined spirit and energy of the American lad. ho marched fearlessly towards the commander. Within a few step* of him he demanded an immediate surrender of themselves and arms. They looked around them, and perceivod that the hostile savage detachment were stationed on the brow of a nill about fifty yards distant. They felt their perilous situation; but, with undaunted firmness and desperate resolution, they told the Canadian officer not to come any nearer to them, if he did they would certainly kill him. At first he laughed at them, for he could not suppose it possible that two boys, neither of them eighteen years of age. would in the face ? C ~ 1 - J - A I 4 f -- ui large aetacnincDi 01 me savage enemy, who were burning with resentment and flushed with hope, dare execute their threat. Finding that they were in no wine intimidated by the dangers which on all sides surrounded them, the Canadian commander resorted to the bold expedient of moving towards his youthful adversaries, and throwing open his bosom defy ing them to (ire at him. at the same time rais ing bia sword to cut down the young American. In thU act of striking they both shot him (trough the heart, and he fell at their feet; t>ut such was the presence of mind of the young American in the fearful circumstance*, and uncertain whether the officer was certainly dead, that to render "assurance doubly sure"' and to prevent the possibility of his calling out to his detachment to fire on them, be turned the butt-end of his musket and with it broke at one blow the neck of the enemy whom they hid shot. At this instant the friendly Pottawatomies providentially appeared on the opposite shore of the river, gave a tremendous yell, and rushed across the stream with the rapidity of lightning. The savage enemy, by this time apprised of the fate of their commander, and seeing the rapid approach of the Pcttawatomie*. took to flight. The brave lads were saved, and proceeded on their journey, amidst perils scarcely less imminent than the one they had just escaped, and effected the /if tkoir niSamnn A Tka * ?
