Some of the details of one of the mot remarkable careers that perhaps ever was experienced have come into our possession, and we give the account to our readers as we received it, only presuming that we have not the remotest grounds for supposing the story exaggerated. The man is now employed on a farm two or three miles from this city, and has a good character for veracity.
About the year 1828 (sic), one of the strongest and most daring of the bands of the rangers who guarded the frontiers of Texas was commanded by a North Carolinian, named Worth, and among all the members none possessed more hardiness or personal strength than the hero of this sketch. he was a Kentuckian, was a splendid rider, and dead shot; could hold his own with any of his comrades, in either drinking or fighting, and was looked upon as a dangerous man to tamper with. Of uncommonly amiable temper, however, he gave no cause of offense to any, and had the good-will of all.
He participated with all the wild fights with the Camanche Indians and the ''Greasers," in which his command took an active part; and when the war for Texas independence commenced, he was one of the first to offer his arm to his adopted land.
