A TALE OF THE REVOLUTION.
About a quarter of a mile from t
Collyb-xrk's Poi:nt, on a beautiful
little knoll, stood, in the tOne of'!
-the Rvolation, a ne.t and prettv a
(for those days'it was very pretty)
American farm house, which was
inhabited by an old native whom z
we shall call Adam Warren. his
"better moiety," and two lovely f<
daughters, just budding into Wo;- r
-manhood. From the piazza of the a
house the view of the surrouindin g b
country was beautiful. The ma- h
jestic Indson, a short distance
from the doorway-the Highlands,
and the tall trees with their rieb s
folag', made it a seene almost en. a
ebanting. The quiet and peace of!
the good old flrmers were not dis
turbed in those days by the noise p
of steamboats and other river craft:
a holy calm pervaded al" around.
and nature seemed fairly intoxi- t
cated with her own loveilncss.
Close by the kitchen door of tle
farm house was a well, whicb was 1f
.said to be over an hundred icet
deep ; at the bottom of which old t
gossips shrewdly hinted that "lots p
ofgold" was buried to prevent its
getting into the hands of tI i rit I
ish and Hessians. Adam Warren's
houwe was t'wo stories high, very i1
large and commodious. with pien
ty of room flor his family, and more b
to spare "for cornpany." In those c
days paintrs and carpenters were
not so plenty as they are now, you o
3)robably know, gentle reader, and n
itherefore Adam Warren was pre- d
wented from having the external
:Uppearance of his house looking
jst as he wanted it-for he wa a*
inzn of very great taste, and ra- t

it was the close of the last dav e
of the summer of 1783, h:at our P
o commences. It had been a u
lovey day, and the departing rays
<f the sun shed a rich lustre en t
the ,urrounding scenery, whieb a
mai.'. it more picturesque and bvau- p
tife& that ever. Adam had just
tiois-'ed his supper, when the new:
411ired that an intimate friend of
Ihis had falen from a tree. broi.ken

were dangerous times to do so ;1
and, as they had ne-vcr b.:en n)
losted, he felt no foar this time, as s
they seemed perfetly wi!ing~ to
star alonme. and exerted themire mx
considierably to get him off.
"'Mind. Mart ha. keep lhe house a

as he said this, he dashe'd his spur
into his horse's sides, and w as I

him from the piazza until he~ was mt
out of sight. and the noise of his
horse's hoofs had d'ied( away.
