who commanded the British squad

horribly mutilated by the wounds he
had ieceivodin ' lhat action, having
lost his right arm and one of hii legs.
Previously to his leaving England,
he was engaged to a young lady to
whom was tenderly attached. Feel

a mere wreck, he sent a friend to the
lady, informing her of his mutilated
condition, and generously offering to
release her from her engagement,

ticularly looked to. Things, there
fore, went on remarkably well so
long as these rules were well regar
ded. Whenever any thing was re
quired for 6te general good, the old
man was called on, and he would
consult all the boys, and, if a majori
ty of them agreed to it, he would do
it, such as in all cases of roads and
easy communications for all of them
to and from market, and also as to
the amount of money to be used by
them. For. in this latter matter, it
was self-evident that whatever kind
of money they used, it was absolute
ly necessary to use a representative
of hard money called bank notes; far
it would never do to let these get too
far beyond the amount of hard mo
ney in deposite to pay them; hence
it was that, in the old family agree
meat, it was distinctly stated that
none of the boys should have the
rieht to make what was then called
"WW of credit."
Well, things went on, as before
said, remarkably smooth for about
fifty years, when the old man got a
tantrum in his head, brought about
perhaps by some of the youngest and
wildest l ovs of the family, who ever
have in all families most influence
over the old folks; and it turned out
that, at one of the meetings about a
road, when a majority had agreed to
it, the old man put his veto on it, and
told them they knew best what roads
they wanted, and to go ahead and
build them themselves. And iut
about that time, too, another meeting
was had about money matters, nnd
he told them he would have nothing
to do in keeping that matter regula
ted, and might better attend to it

they went, making banns, it was

than roads; and the consequence, was
the farm was soon covered with bank
notes, and a creat many roads were

both. The boys, finding Uiemseivs
