BT CAFTAIS J IRC WILLIAMS. If the stories of incidents and adventures enrrent in any of the numerous camps, in the neighborhood of Seeeshdom, could be collected in book form, tbey would make a very readable work. I may aend jou a string of such as are afloat in our region, at some future time; at present, I will relate on* which oame to my knowledge a few days since. Squire Bailey bad the biggest, and best, and most docile mule in Marlin's Bottom, and Martin's Bottom is about the biggest and best neighborhood on Greenbrier River Squire Bailey was inclined to be a Union man, and did not entirely conceal his sentiments, notwithstanding the presence of Floyd's army in the vicinity. About the time of Floyd's '* tumultuous flight" from that region, be was very much in need of transportation, and, accord " ing to e?tabli?bed ougM among cash, be rtMMdtd to levy on the Uama of tke neighboring farm an Of course, i TTnfoVThln, like Squire Bailey, was not to escape ; bat Squire Bailey, taking time by the forelook, very quietly, one night, removed to a safe locality all his live atock except bis faverite mule, which he kept for hauling wood and going to mill. This male being apparently the only support of a large and increasing family, Squire Bailey fondly believed the secefh would not be heartless enough, to rob him of it. But Squire Bailey did not understand Secash. One fine morning along came Quartermaster Blifie, accompanied by half a dosen armed men, from Floyd's army. Squire Bailey was standing at his gate when Quartermaster Rlifift annrnached. and commenced a oonversa. tion with him. " Good morning, Mr.?a?Mr.?" " Bailey,1' suggested the Squire. " Yes, Bailey; gpod morning, Mr. Bailey." k " Morning" said the Squire. " I understand, Mr. Bailey, that you have a number of horses and mules which you wish to dispose of to our glorious Confederacy." " Mistake, sir," said Bailey; "I hare none i to sell to anybody." " But, Mr. Bailey, tome gentlemen informed me yesterday that you had quite a number of horsoa and mules." * "If you'll believe your eyes, instead of ; some gentlemen,' Mr. Quartermaster, yon can see for yourself tbat I have nothin' but that mule, in the dog pen there, and that I can't nz- jai klw VAAVI kmilA ' ' W J A OV y U v UO v niiUUUk. Ah ! I see the male," said Blifie, looking through the craoks. " You'd be asking fifty dollars for that male, I s'pose. Well, its a big price, bat if 70a won't take less, I'll have to give it. Corporal just write a note for fifty dollars, ptyable in Florida swamp lands, at twenty-five dollars an aore, two years after oar glorioas Confederacy achieves undisputed independence'' " Bat, Mr. Blifie," remonstrated the Souire, "if you take my male, my family will ireeie to death, and starve to death, too, afore spring. And if I had twenty males. I could not sell yoa one sich as that, for less nor three hundred in gold, but this one I can't spare at no price." "We mast all make sacrifices. Mr. Bailey, for our glorious Confederacy If yon only knew the sacrifices I have made, Mr. Bailey. The starving and freezing of yoar wife and children are nothing compared to them; bat oar glorious Confederacy called, and my patriotism responded to the call. Future generations will remember and blesa us, Mr. Bailey, and we will receive the everlasting gratitude of oar glorious Confederacy. Think of that, Mr Bailev, think of that. Mr Blifie, before his appointment, had been utterly penniless, and ten times as mean as he was poor. Tbese qualification! got him the appointment ot quartermaster; out ot tmsomce he was, of coarse, stealing a fortune H? had *' sacrificed" the Peter Funk business for that paradue of peculators?a quartermastership. " Mr. Blifie," said the bquire, with much feeling, " for the Lord's sake don't take my last airthly aupport. Don't you seo my children all a cryin' and a carryin' on, because they know they'll all be in their graves afore spring, if you rob me of " " Rob!" exclaimed Mr. Blifie, fiercely, " Don't say ' rob' again, or I'll massacre your ..LaIA MM* A# t/\*a T ?

I oughtn't to pay such as you a oent, but I'm a generous man, and too ought to be thankful to me. Corporal, nil up the note as I dirteUd" " Hold on a minit," said the Squire. " If that paper is what you are goin' to gire me, don't spile it by writiu' on it. The bunk paper might be of a little use to me, but the writin' on it never oould." 44 You're a cursed traitor to our glorious Confederacy," said Blifie, and be started to take the mule oat of the pen. It was hitched with a halter, and had abroad eiraingle around it. Ha unfastened it, and without deigning another word to the " enemy of hia glorioua Confederacy " ha was off with it to aeek another farmer's stablea. Squire Bailey looked aad as ha turned to go in tne house, and, in the bitterness of hia feelings. so far forgot himself as to " d?n the " glorious Confederacy." Snugly concealed in Squire Bailey's closet waa Jack Phillipa, Vhe up-to-ererjthing Ohio scout. As the Squire entered the room he called out, " Come out. Jack; they've gone, and the infernal aooundrels hare stole my 1^ 99 u?. " I told job they would," said Jack, making his appearance, " and if I had'nt informed von last night, they'd a got nil the rest of 'em that yoa aent off." "That's ao Jack; bat I'd given handred dollars to have that mule back." Jack looked steadily at the fire fer five minutes. " What did yoa say, Squire?" " I said I'd give a hundred dollar* to get that mule back; bat I 'spoM three hundred wouldn't get him. " l don t know, Mia jmi, abstractedly, ud he looked la the fire for five minutes more. Suddenly Jack brightened op, and aid ' Give me the hundred dollars, Squire, and I'll bring yoa your mule to-morrow ulght, or your money shall be returned." The Squire looked amaied at Jack for a moment, but seeing he waa in earnest, put five doable eaglee in his hand. In a few minutes Jack left the house, dressed in lineey pants, a red wamai, and a coonskin eap. Neit dav as Jack was walking leisurely up the road, by a coincidence. prooaDly brougnt about by himself, he met die Quartermaster and his men, returning with the proceeds of the expedition Jack smiled a happy smile, whan he saw Blifie behind the rest, leading the Squire's male. He walked quietly along until na came almost opposite the Quartermaster, when he darted suddenly off the side of tha road, looking at the male as if fright* ened. " Blastad scoundrel txclaimed Jack. " Who! who is a blasted sooandrel ?" asked iuv y iinerohmi* " Atnt that the mule old Bailev bad?" asked Juk, moving still farther out of hi* reach. " Tea ; but who did too say ?u a blaated scoundrel'" inquired lha Quartermaster, very naturally taking all such compliments to himself. "Why, old Bailey, aad tha mule too, for that matter," replied Jack. What's the mattar with tha mule?" aakad Blifta. whose former oocupation had not made him much of a judge of lira stock. "The matter! Why he'll kill you afore you get him home. You didn't pay the old sinner anything for him, did you f" inquired Jaak. " Certainly; I paid twe hundred and fifty dollar* for him " Thla U what tha aaerifioiag patriot intended to rataro him at, to hU glorioui Confederacy. " Lord a merey !M exclamed Jack. " But what's toe matter with bim?" asked Blifie, looking at the animal half frightened. "That ere mule," replied Jack, "has kioked down, in his time, every panel of fence on old Bailey's place! You found him in a pen of big logs, didn't you?" "Ye#; why?" inquired Blifle. "And them ere logs are fastened by big iron bolts. Its the only thing that would ever hold him. He has killed all the rest of old Bailey's stock, and the old rascal has kept him on purpose to swindle some fellow with." "I heard," said Blifie, "that he used to l a_ 11 nave more siock " That's what become of it." said Jack. " Didn't the children crj, and didn't old Bailey whine snd carry on abont losing his threehondred-dollar mala?" " Yes, they did, at a great rate." "I knowed it," said Jack. "Tha old woman spanked them ohildren, and sent them oat at tka niek of time to help tha old rasa^ lit Ma swindle. AffJ to oheat oar rlorioflP Confederacy in that manner! He ought to be hung !" and Jack winked his off eye. "But it he's so vioious," said Blifie hopefolly, "how did they get the halter and cirsingle on him!" " Chloroform, sir, chloroform. I've actually seen that male kick his collar off." " And did they gire him ohloroform to get the collar on him ? asked Blifie. < XT l? T . mm mi ao:" repuea jmk. xney pat some oats in the bottom of a barrel, and laid the collar aorou tbe top; the male run hi* bead through the collar to get at tbe oats." " The devil!" ejaculated the Quartermaster. "Yes," continued Jack, "and I seed him kick tbat collar off. Ever since tbat, be kicks every barrel to staves that be gets eyes on." " But he has seemed quiet enough sinee I have been leading him," interposed Blifie. "Her you any liquor about you?" asked Jack. " Yes. a little in my coat pocket; why do you ask?" ' mat s wnat be rollers you for, and its a wonder he hain't eat you up body and breeches afore thii, to get the liquor. I knowed that mule to kiek the loek off of old Bailey's cellar door, and go down thar and git as drunk as a beast. Fact, sir. That mule can kiek your hat off, and you on bis back." " That can't be so," said the Quartermaster, incredulously. "Try him." said Jack. "I'yejist got aoool hundred dollars to give you if you'll ride him arod." By this time the Quartermaster's attendants had got out of sight, and bis avaricious soul prompted him to make an effort to get Jack's gold, thinking he couldn't be more than thrown off, anyhow. rru ? _:_va. i j av _ ? ? ? iui uigm oeioro id 11 meeting. JacK naa auietly stolon into tbe male's stable, and carefully placed a leather dog-oollar, driven fall of pointed sparrowbills. under tbe males cirsingle. patting a piece of light leather between the points of the nails ana the males back, so so that a moderate pressure would force them throogh into tbe animal's hide Ignorant of this, the greedy Quartermaster moved the male to the bank, and sprang on him just where the dog-collar was placed Just as he lit on the mule, a boulder lit on his head, and he lit sprawling in the mud. The mule, frantio with the pain of the nails still sticking in bis back, sprang off the side of tbe road, knocked down a doien panels of fence, and ran furiously across the field, rearing, kicking, laying down and rolling over, jumping up, and plunging about at a terrible rate. ?'

"What'U you give me for the chance of him7" aaked the Quartermaster, as he saw another string of fenoe go down before the maddened mule. "Don't know," said Jack; "the halter might be worth a dollar or so, if I could get close enough to shoot him before he tears it all toshorstrings." " But where's my horse'" asked the Quartermaster, looking around in astonishment. "Don't know, replied Jack; "the mnle gave him a hyste with h?s heels, jist as he started, and haven't seed the boss since." " I wish the devil had eld " " ueiio: goartermaeter!" shoated a man in seceah uniform, who waa coming up tbe road at the top of bia apeed ; " hello ! Mr. Qaartermaater, the enemy la coming right down on our eamp, and the General want! you immediately. Oar army la running Ilk* all poaaest, and the General wanta you to help aare the plunder. Hurry baok as hard aa you can run, or the enemy will be betwixed you and our fellere." Blifte waited to hear no more, but broke for bia camp like a quarter-hone. When he arrived. and found that the atory waa all false, terrible waa tbe vengeance he rowed, but before he had time to execute bia threat*,Floyd'a army waa in a remote part of the State. It is hardly neceaaary to add tbat the mes cugvr win asuii iu? yuarierm*8i?r on so precipitately, via an associate of Jack'a and that Jack had turned the Qaartermaater'a horie with hia head np the road, and by a sharp cat with a whip aent him out of sight before Blifie recovered from hia confusion.
