A STORY OF THE REVOLITU

General Greene made an unsuccessful
tack on the British post at Ninety
and withdrew his men beyond the 1
and Broad Rivers. Lord Rawdon

Lord Rawdon advanced to where K

a small room to hold a consultation. Ka
thought they might have something ir

the part of eavesdropper. She told h

tion to overhear the Briton's plans.
.[twas a dangerous undertaking, ar
sho knew that if she was caught in ?

a spy, ?ft?l, perhaps, executed, for Lor
Hawdon knew no mercy. She cautiou

a crevice. Rawdon and his Colonel wer
seated before a small table on which la
maps. They were examining them dosi

"England," answered Lord Rawdon
lowering his voice.
.Kate listened to the Briton's plan wiri
with a wildly throbbing heart, and she
resolved to save the patriot army. When
she heard the countersign she left the
. door and busied herself in her house

emerged from the roora. .
'; We must go, Miss Heath, but first
let me thank" you for your kindness,"
Your thanks are received," answered
The horses were saddled, and the offi
cers were soon on their way. Kate watch
ed them till they were out of sight, and
then she prepared for her perilous jour
ney. She threw a shawl over her head
and went to the stable. Her fleet-footed
horse neighed as she entered, a:.d she pet
ted him on the head and said :
" Well, noble Selim, you must carry
me safely through to-night, for if you do
not Greene will be destroyed."
The animal seemed to understand her,
for be gare a low whinny, ?
Our hemine saddled Selim, led him
from the stable, and was soon riding to
wards Greene's camp, which was eight
miles distant. She rode swiftly, for she
wanted to reach her destination in time
to let her patriot general form his men
to meet the assault. The British pickets
were four miles distant, and she would be
compelled to poss through their lines ; but
I as she was now in possession of the coun
tersign she did not fear the result.
Soon Kate saw the picket's bayonet
gleam in the moonlight, and heard him
cry out :
" Who goes lhere ?"
" A friend, with thc countersign."
She approached the picket and whis
pered : " England !"
" All right ; pass on. But stop !" cried
thc picket, as he caught a glimpse of her
Kate stopped her horse, and laid her
hand on a pistol. The picket approached
and said :
" ls that you, Miss Heath ?"
" It is, Guy," returned Kate, for she
recognized the soldier to bc Guy Jackson,
who had often visited their home.
" Where are you going to-night, Miss
Kate ?" he asked.
"To see Mrs. Blake; she is very sick."
"Just like you, Miss Ka- -always
visiting thc sick ; yu rv a .ciMistering
angel," said the haugh')' Bri um.
"Thank you for the compliment, Guj. i
But I must be going. Good night." And 1
Kate was again on her journey, while the
picket returned to his post. " .
She had to pass four miles yet ere she
would be safe, so she urged on her ><.. :
Before she had gone a hundred y^-ds
from Guy Jackson, a dozen mounted
Britons rode furiously up to the picket,
and their leader cried ouc :
" Did any person pass this post a short
time since ?"
" Yes, sir," was the picket's reply.
" Do you know who it was ?".
" I do ; it was Miss Heath."
" Had she the countersign, sir ?"
" 1 fear she is safe. Forward, men !
If she escapes, Greene is saved. A hun
dred golden guineas and a commission to
the man who catches her,"' cried me lead
er of the band, as they dashed after the
brave girl, leaving the picket in a state of
Kate soon heard the sound of her pur
suers, and she pushed on the faster. It
was a race for life or death. The British
horses were fresh, while hers was begin
ning to shows signs of fatigue.
"Forward, Selim; you must take me
to Greeue's camp," said Kate, to her
But her enemies gained upon her, and
one of them seemed bent on catching
her, for he was some yards in advance ot
his comrades. Kate heard the ominous
tramp of his horse and drew her pistol.
Nearer he came until he was Rt her side,
and t-.cn cried out :
" Halt, you eui.sed rebel !"
Those were his last words, for Kate
fired, and the bullet crushed through his
brain. The others did not stop to look
at their dead comrade, but pressed on.
They neared her again, and another troop
er received a severe wound. The re
mainder halted, and a moment afterward
Kate heard the American picket cry out:
" Who goes there ?"
" Kate Heath," cried our heroine, as
she dashed through the line.
The soldier had raised his gun, but
when he heard Jier nume it was lowered,
and he answered : ?.
The American camp was reached in a
few minutes; Kate threw herself from
the saddle, and placed lier faithful norse
in charge of a soldier.
" Where is Greene's tent ?"
" To the right there where you see that,
light," replied the soldier, pointing to
She entered the General's tent, and
found him engaged in writing ; he raised
his eyes, then rose to his feet and said :
" You come here at a late hour. Miss
I do, General ; you are in danger."
<; Flow is that ?" exclaimed Greene.
The brave girl told her story ; and the
patriot grasped her hand, while the tears
trickled down his war-worn checks.
"Thank God! you have saved my ar
my, Miss Heath. I can never repay you."
" I want no payment. The thought

"Take my thank:., my brave giri. il

"And may He save my country, too,"
" You need rest. Herc, s'e-p in my

among my men," said the kind-hearted
" I do not wish to rob you of your
" You will not. I shall be engaged in
forming my troops to meet the attack ;'"
and General Greene left the tent.
Kate enjoyed a good rest that night,
and in thc morning General Greene
came to her, and joyfully exclaimed :
"Good news! Lord Hawdon is in full
retreat. We took a prisoner this morn
ing who says you frustrated their plans
and saved the army. God bless you for
that good act ! But 1 must leave you
now, for I am going to follow Rawdon,
and teach him that we can fight. When
are you going home?"
"In a few minutes, General."
" Good-bye ; and may you have a safe
journey," responded Greene, shaking hel
by the hand. Her horse was led i'>nh.
and she was soon on her way home, which
was reached in safety.
Kate Heath lived to see the war closed,
and peace and plenty spread their wings
over the land ; and not ion.^ afterwards
she was wedded to Waker Gordon, who

Read, and Reflect.
From ihe Land tee Love.
The Norfolk Virginian, edited by the
poet and scholar, James Barron Hope,
gives a truthful, but humiliating view of
the kind of literature supported by the
Southern people, lt says:
" We sec upon our streets, in our shops,
in our offices, in our cars, on our steam
boats-everywhere, pictorial papers, print
ed mainly in New "lork, which are ea
gerly bought ; while the Land We Love,
the Banner of the South, and numberless
other meritorious publications, are sup
ported only by a small class of our peo
ple. This is humiliating reflection, but
nevertheless true. Our people prefer
the spread-eagle literature and the leg
pictures to the inspirations of our poets,
or the best reflections ot our thinkers.
But bad as the pictures are, the 'litera
ture,' commonly so-called, is infinitely
worse. Wo find them all filled with
' seasations' of a licentious character.
Sands and Dumas have lent their sensu
ous coloring, without a gleam of theil
genius ; and the Cardinal Sins are assid
uously taught both by text and illustra
tion. Not only do these papers corrupt
the public morals, bot they perpetually
affront the mind of a Southern reader
by indulging in the mest reckless parti
san statements in thc interests of.the
We linve been at some pains to ascer
tain the relative support given to North
ern and Southern literature at the South,
The statistics are truly wonderful. Ex
cluding political, agricultural and religious
papers, and confining our examination
strictly to literary periodicals, quarter
lies, monthlies and weeklies, we have
found that the ratio of Northern to South
ern was 8 to 1, where Northern literature
was least taken, and 240 Northern, to 1
Southern where the Northern was mosl
patronized. The city, where the propor
tion is so great against Southern litera
ture, is pre-eminently a Southern city in
feeling and principle. If any one is in
clined to question thc accuracy of this es
timate, let him go to his own Post-Office
arid let him see the kind of reading mat
ter sold by the news-boys on his own
streets. He will see how little supporl
la given to Southern literature, and he
will discover moreover, that what comet
from abroad, is of the most corrupting
character ; pandering to low sensualism,
or devoted to the propagation of some
infidel scheme, or gotten up to libel and
villify the South, or crammed with statis
tics of crime, or given over to a na.nby
pamby sentimentalism. Christian pa
rents purchase and take home to theil
families these vicious and demoralizing
pcriodioals, and never seem to feel that
they are thereby poisoning the minds,
and" corrupting the hearts of those they
love as their own souls. They would
carefully guard their children from evil
company, not reflecting that the reading
of impure and wicked books and papers
is at once the most subtle and dangerous

ranged to have their pulpits supplied by
a clergyman named Miller, who was to
be found at the railroad depot at Eliza

hence in a carriage. At the appointed
time the Methodist vehicle drove up to
the depot, and the driver seeing a gentle
man in black promenading on the plat
form, accosted him, fcund his name was
Miller, told him him his errand, and final
ly took him on board and to Rahway,
where he preached for the Methodists,
though he is a Baptist preacher. The
Baptists soon after found another gentle
man of thc name of Miller, also walking
by the depot, and took him to their
church in Rahway, where he gave them
a good sermon. Both parties were pleas
ed, which is more than can usually be
said in the case of a double mistake, and
all enjoyed the joke when it was known
how much their sectarianism had been
