now a just desert, the brightest star in
the American constellation, and the wi

Let ns relate an instanoe.
It was in the year 1777. Philadelphia
was in the hands of tlowe and bis inhu

dywine, gave the American people an ev

habitants of Delaware and Pennsylvania
were at the mercy of their foes. Bands

On the evening of a delightful summer
day, a group of boys ranging iq age lrom
twelve to seventeen, wore gathered tp
gethor on the steps of a tenantless store
in the village of Newark, Delaware. The
town seemed lonely, and with the creep
tien of the youthful band already told,
not a human being met .the eye. All the
men, capable of bearing arms, had left
their bomea to Join Washington on tbe
Sohnylkill. A youth of sixteen years
mounted on a barrel, was giving an no
eount of the disastrous battle of Brandy-
wine James Wilson, the narrator, was
a bold boy, enthssiastio in his love of the
American causo, and possessed of no lit

throbbed a heart that never quailed in
danger or shrank before an obntaole. 'His

The boy conaluded his narration, and
was deeply lamenting that he could not
join the army.
"I am not old enough, said he, "but
bad I a musket I wonld not stand idle
here, with my hands banging uselessly
by my side."
"Are tbere no guns of any description

imply the readiness with whioh he could
trounce old Livingston's ton.
James W ilson't eyes sparkled with toy.
'If any three boys in this company will
help me, I will searoh old Livingston's
house to-night. AH who are willing to
go, step forwsrd three paoes. '

With firm tread and the utmost silence
the young heroes took their march for
i ''Livingston had been long suspected
of harh'oring British spies, and some of
his former laborers, had reported that he
bad kept up 'a regular, correspondence
with the British commander. At til
events be was generally regarded by the
genuine' Whigs at a dangerous man, and
wis therefore avoided. ' " :
At (ha time June Wilson and hi lit
tle bsnd left the deserted store bouse, in
the Village of Newark, dusk had given,
place to the dark shades of night." The
moon was shining brightly in tbe clouds
and every object was neifeotly distinguish

Ob me in sight of the cbjeot of their des
tination. As they came to a little log
bridge whioh crossed a little shallow riv
ulet leading into tha Wbita Clay Creek,
Jtmei Wilson prdered them to halt.
"Let Frank Howard and myself recon
noitre the premises first, to foe whether
any danger may be apprehended. All
th rest sland here until we return. Make
no noise, and keep constant watch."
'. Jamea and Frank silently departed, and
were toon lost, to the eye in th woods
through which the path ran. Searoe had
they gone from view of their companions
when tbe qwok ear ot mison qeteoteq i
"Hitt" fsid ha to Frank, at he pulled

tightly p-riped tha boy by th neok. -The
oowardly youth trembled like a reed.

"Who is he ?" asked Jamc.
"I don't know I don't indeed." , , ,
"Tell 1" threatened Frank.
"He is Captain of t he Yorkshire Dra
goons." - -
-The blue eyes of James glistened with
joy, and he soon gained from the Tory's
son a revelation which stamped his lather
as as a traitor of the most appalling char
acter, tie discovered that old Living
ston not only kept un a correspondence
with the British commander, but that he
bad plotted in his traitorous designs that
the little village of .Newaik was to be
berned to ashes, and its women and chil
dren exposed lo the mercies of these pit
iless foes. ', The old Tory vras to rcoeivo
as his reward the land .whereupon the
village stood and an annual pension from
the English Government.
But stranger than all, the plot was to
be consummated on that very night, and
the'Tory's son had been oaptured while
ne was going on an errand to a lory
neighborhood about two miles distant.
The little band of heroes learned too
that the British troops had secured their.
horses in Livingston's stable, and descen-t'

"Mav Buob. be tho end of Americas'
foes forever I" said Wilson,
Old Livingston's house was searched
and to the surprise of every one, not only
guns, but three brass field pieces, several
barrels oi powder, and an abundance of
balls, eto , were found ponoealed in tbe
cellar. The military stores found here
were given over to the American troops
and leund a jovial welcome at their quar
ters. Had not the Bti'ish party been so
signally defeated al' the has-of the
White Clay, tha town Of Newark end the
whole northern part of tbe State of Del
aware would have been overrun by pre
datory partiee of British soldiers.
James Wilson and Frank Howard both
joined the army of Green, and served
with distinction in the Southern .cam
paigns. Frank fell in . the . memorable
battle of Eutaw Springs, bewailed by all
who knew him.' James Wilson lost a leg
at the seige of Yorktowt, and retired to
his native village : but tiortifioation en
sued ; and he expired with tbe over-to-
be-romembered words on his lips, "(Jut

were twenty of ihem besides the captain.
Disdstoue, tbe leader of the band was in
temper and heart a perfeot demon, and
scrupled not in his cruelty to dostroy the
sleeping infant or the sickly wife. Not
a fow in that youthful band of patriots
trembled for the safoty of a widowed mother.
Some were for departing immediately,
but James Wilson, who still retained his
grasp on the Tory s son, ordered all to be
silent. Tha prisoner was-tied hand-and
foot, a thick handkerchief was tied over
Ills mouth to prove HI his calling lor as
sistance, and a stout cord fastened to his
breast and wound about a tree. All
hopes of escapo forsook George Living
ston. Wilson motioned his little band to
follow him, and in a few moments they
stood on the summit of a high precipice
which overhung White (Jlay Creek.
"Now boys, said James ilson, "the
narative we have just learned is true ; and
as we nave no muskets or ammunition
we must make the best of the occasion.
The British band will pass this spot in
their boat, and as we have an hour to work
let us busy, ourselves in rolling some of
these large rocks to tbe edge ot this preo
ipioe, and when the red boats pass below,
let us sink thorn to the bqttom."
Each boy set immediately to work, and
in an incredibly short lime, nine huge
rocks, each of half a ton in weight were
nicely ballanoed upon the edge of tbe
giant precipice. The. oreek at this point
wot not more than twenty feet wide ; and
was directly overhung by the mass of
rocks on which our heroes stood. If the
British band desqended tbe creek, they
would certainly pass this post ; and if they
passed it, then death was their certain
fate. In about an hour the quiok ear of
Wilson demoted toe measured -stroke oi
the muffled oars,
"They are coming," he whispered ;"let
no one drop his rock untij I give ths
word, and all at onoo."
It was a beautiful night to' wreok i
.work of death. . Tht heaveol wen span
glid with innumerable 'Stars,' and every
object upon which the moonbeams played
sparklod with silvery radianoe. '
Closer oame the doomed Royalists, and
tbe hearts of the boy patriots beat wildly
in their bosoms. Peering cautiously over
the cliff, James Wilson saw the Tones
slowly bnt surely approaching. An offi
oer stood id bow, guiding the onrmon by
his orders, and tho epaulets on his shoul
ders told that it was tho 'identical fiend,
Major Bardstone.' .
i "Don't drop till I givo tho ordor,"
again whispered Wilson... - .".v v...
When the boat was abont twenty feet
from the rocks, the boy leader fell secure
ly behind his stone defense, and. shouted,

1 a a mpment the oq.-imen peassd row-
ing, and gated Willi "amasement above
them. The impetus whioh the boat had
acquired caused it to drift slowly under
tha rocks j and just as it got fairly below,
forth came tbe doomed words : "Cut
loose in the namo of Liberty 1"
; Eaoh boy pushed hit rook at that in
stant, and with one impulse, th gigantic
stones fell. A loud shriek from tha wa
ter below, told how well the plan had suo
peeded, and when the exultant boys again
looked over the precipice, nothing was
seen but a few pieoes of floating wood.
Thojboat had been bunted open, and the
Oooupanta had found a grave t,t th bot
tom of tbe White Clay, t j, '
A cry of victory burst from the joyous
lipt of th patriott, and it wm echoed
along the old oreok in solemn grandeur.
"Now for Our prisoner 1" cried Frank
Howard, bounding ahead ; but what was
the astonishment of tbe boy to find that
in tho (fort to free himself George Liv
ingston had been onoked to death. There
was do time for repining, the traitor and
th ton had met their deserved fate, and
tbere was oo one to mourn their lost. I

viotion, on receiving hit sentence of
death : -

It has so oftea been admitted that the op

Without uod our existence baa no sup

More Excavations at Pompeii.

the Royal Household, when a wonderful
discovery was made. It was a kitchen
.that was disinterested, and on oca of the
Yornelli taiall square holes or Are plaoe,
iuch as are' in use in the proeent day, and
are fed with charcoal was found a cop

vessol or saucepan was hermetically dosed,
and intrusted all ovar with hpalli, so
that it required considerable force to
open it. But hvw groat was the sur
prise of thoso present to find that it was
nearly full of water I The interior of
the vessel presented no signs of oxida
tion, so that no one hesitated to taste the
viator, when it was found pcrfeotly sweet
and good. Pompeii, which has enriched
