CROCKETT--The last anecdote told of the worthy col. runs thus: He happend once to be travelling in a steamboat, (where the deponent spith not) when discovering the vessel went too slow for his calculations, he ordered the boat ashore, took it up under his arm, and trudged off through the woods, at the rate of ten knots an hour. It is said he was so well pleased with this performance, that he grinned the bark off three large trees in succession.
