Tb? shades of night were n-comi'n down swift,
And the dasilin' saew lay drift on drift; W
When through a Tillage n youth did go .
A-c*rryin' a flag with this motto,
Of er forehead high curled copious hair,
Hia nose a Roman, complexion fair;
O'er an eagle eye au auburn lash,
And ho never stopped sbeutin' through his mus
He saw through the windows as ho was getting up
A number of families sittin' at supper;
Ho eyed the slippery rocks very keen,
And fled while he cried, and cried while a-fleeln',
"Take care, you there !" said an old woi.,nn "stop!
It's blow Id* gales up there on top;
You'll tumble off on t'other side!" '
Dut the hurrying stranger loud replied,
'Oh ! don't you go up such n shocking night!
Gome sleep on my lap !" said a maiden bright,
O'er Iub Roman nose a tear-drop come,
But still he remarked, as he upward dumb,
"book out for the branch of that sycamore tree, '
Dodge roll in' stones if any you see;"
Sjiy in' whioh, the farmer went borne to bed,
And the singular voice replied overhead.
About quarter past six the next afternoon,
A man accidentally goin' up soon,
Heard spoken above him as often as thrice,
The very same werds, iu a very weak voice,
And not far, I believe, fron? quarter of Heven?
He was slow get tin' up, the road belli* uneven?
Found tho stranger dead in the drifted suow,
Still clutch in' the flag with the motto,
, , "Higher." ^
Yes, Hfcless, defunct, without any doubt,
The lamp of Inn bein' decidedly out.
On the dreary hillside the youth was a-layln',
And there was no more use for him to be uayin',
While the French Marshall, Murat, was in
Madrid he wna anxious to communicate with
Junot in Portugal, but all the roads to Lisbon'
swarmed with guerrillas, and with the troops
composing Castano's army. Murat mentioned
hia embarrassment to Huron 8trongonoff, the
Russian Ambassador to Spain.
Russia, it is well known, was at the time not
only the ally but the friend of France. M. de
Strongonoff told Murat that it was the easiest
thing in the world. "The Russian Admiral,
Sinaivin," said he, "is in the 1 port of Lisbon;
give me the most intelligent of your Polish
lancers ; I will dress him up in a Russian uni
form, and entrust him with dispatches for tho
I, Admiral. All will go well even if he should
be taken prisoner a dozen times between this
and Lisbon, for the insurgent army is so anx
ious to obtain our neutrality that it will be
careful not to furnish a pretext for rupture."
Murat was delighted with this ingenious
scheme. He asked Krakinski, the command
ant of the lancers, to find him a brave and in
telligent young man. Two days afterwards the
commandant brought Murat a young man of
his corps, for whom he pledged his life; his
name was Lcckinski, and ho wasjbut eighteen
Murat was moved at seeing so young a man
court so imminent a danger, for if he were de
tected his doom was sealed. Murat could not
help remarking to tho Polo the risk he was
about to run. The youth smiled. "Let your
imperial highness give me my instructions." ho
answered respectfully, "I will give you a good
aocount of tho mission I have been honored
with. It thank his highness for having ohoson
me from1 among my comrades, for all of thorn
would have courted this distinction."
Tho prince augured favorably from the
young man's modest resolution. The Russian
Ambassador gnvo him his dispatches ? he put
on a Russian uniform and sot out for Portu
The first two days passed over quietly ; but
on the afternoon of the third. Lcckinski was
surrounded by a body of Spaniards, who dis
armed him and dragged him before their com
manding officer. Luckily for tho gallant youth
it was C as tan oh himself.
Lcckinski was aware that he was lost if he
was discovered to bo a Frenchman, consequent
ly ho determined on the instant, not to let a
single word of French escape him, and to
speak the Russian and German, whioh he spoke
with equal fluency. Tho crios of rage of his
captors announced the fate that awaited him,
and the horrible murder of Gon. Rene, who
had perished under most dreadful tortures but
a fow weeks bofore, as he was going to join
Juuut, was sufficient to freeze the very blood.
suWho are you f" said Castanos in French
which language ho understood perfectly well
having been educated in Franco.
! Lcckinski looked at the qucstiouer, made a
sign,.and answered in German, "I do ho* un
, Castanos spoke German, but he did not wish'
to appear personally in the matter, and sum
moned one of the* officers of the staff, who
went on with the examination. The young
Pole answered in Russian and Germau, but
never let a single syllable of French, escape
him. Ho might, however, easily havo forgot
ten himself, surrounded as ho was by a crowd
eager for his blood, and who waited with sav
age impatience to havo him deolarcd guilty?
that is, a Frenchman?to fall upon and murder
But their fury was raised to a height whioh
the General himself could not control by an
incident which seemed to cut off the unhappy
prisoner from every hope of escape. Ono of
the Caslanos' aides-de-camps, one of the fanati
cal patriots who were so numerous in this war,
and who from the first had denounced Leckin
ski as a French spy, burst iuto the room, drag
ing with him a man wearing the brown jacket,
tall hat, and rod plume of a Spanish peasant.
The officer confronted him with the Pole,
"Look at this man, then say if it is true that
ho is German or a Russian. He is a spy, I
swear by my soul."
The peasant meanwhile was eyeing the pri
soner closely. Presently his dark eyes lighted
up with tho fire of hatred.
"Es Frances! he is a Frenchman," ex
claimed he clapping hands. And he stated
that, having been in Madrid a few weeks be
fore, he hud been put into requisition to carry
forage to tho French barracks, "and," said he,
"I recollect that this man took my load of
forago, and gave uie a receipt. I was near him
an hour, aud recollect uini. When we caught
him, I told iny comrade he was the French
officer I delivered my forage to."
This was correct. Castanos probably dis*"
cerned the true state of the case, but he was a
generous foe. He concluded to let him pur-r
suo his journey, for Lcckinski still insisted that
he was a Russian, aud he could not be niado to
understand a word of French. Rut the mo
ment he ventured a hint of the kind, a thou
sand threatening voices wore raised against
him, aud he saw that clemency was impossible.
"But," said he, "will you thou risk a quarrel
with Russia, whose neutrality we arc asking so
anxiously for ?"
"No," said the officers; "but let's try this
Lockinski understood all, for ho was ac
quainted with Spanish. Ho was rouioved and
thrown iuto a room worthy to have been one of
tho dungeons of tho Inquisition in its best days.
When the Spaniards took him prisoner he
had eaten nothing since tho previous evening,
and when his dungeon door was closed on him
he had fasted for eighteen hours. No wonder
then, that with exhaustion, fatigue, anxiety
and the agony uf his dreadful situation^ that
the unhappy prisoner foil almost, senseless on
the hard eoueh. Night soon closed in and loft
him to realise in his gloom the full horror of
his situation. He was brave, of oourse ; but

door of his duugeon opened slowly, aud sotuo
one entered with cautious step, hiding with his
hand the light of a lamp ; the visitor bent over
the prisoner's couch, the hand that shaded the
lamp touched him on the shoulder, aud a sweet
and Bilvery voice?a woman's voice?asked
"Do you want to cat?"
The young Pole, awakened suddenly by the
glnro of the lamp, by the touch and words of
the female, rose up en his couch, aud with his
eyes half opened, said in German, "What do

tanos, when he heard the result of the first ox
perimont, "and let him go. lie is uot a
Frenchman. How could ho have been so far

But though Lcckinski was supplied with
food he was detained as a prisoner. Tho next
morning he was taken to a spot where he could
sec tho mutilated corpso of tho Frenchman,
who had boon cruolly massacred by the peasan
try of Truxillo, and he was threatened with
tho sarao death. Rut tho uoble youth had
promised not to fail, and not a word, not an ac
cent, uot a gesture or look betrayed him.
Lcckinski, whon taken back to tho prison,
hailed it with a sort of joy ; for twelve hours
ho had nothing but gibbets, and death in its
most horrid forms, before his eyes, exhibited to
him by men with tho look, and passions of do
mon8. lie slept, howevor, after the harrassing
excitement of the day, and roundly, too; when,

The next morning early, four men came to

tended not to anderstand thorn.
When he oame before his judges ho seemed
to gather what was going on from the arrange

heard said around him. and he asked in Ger
man where his interpreter was. Ho was sent
I for, and the examination commenced.
It. turned at first upon the motive of his
journey f.-om Madrid to Lisbon. He answered
by showing his dispatches to Admiral Sinirivin
and his passport.5- Spite of the presence and
vehement'assertions of the peasants, he persist

trial the human spirit can be put to.
A Wonderful Story.
The following wonderful story is snid to have
been taken from the log book of a vessel which
arrived in New York !
In tbo course of the voyage, that dreadful
disease the ship fever broke out among the
crow. One of the sailors, among the first vic
tims, was accompanied by his son a lad of four
teen years who was strongly attached to Iiis
father, and remained with him day nod night,
and never could be persuaded to leave him for |
A large shark was seen every day following
the vessel evidently for the purpose of devour
ing any ono who should die and be committed
to tho deep.
After lingering a few days, the sailor died.
As was custom at sea he was sewed up in a
blanket, und for the purpose of sinking him, an
old grindstone and a carpenter''. r?xo were put
in with him. The very impressive service of
the Episcopal Church was then red and tho
body committed to the deep.
The poor boy, who had watched the pro
ceedings closely, plunged in after his father,
when tho enormous shark swallowed thorn
both. Tho second day after this dreadful
scene as the shark continued to follow the ves
sel (for there were others sick in the ship),
one of the sailors proposed as thoy had a shark
hook on board, to make an effort to take him.
They fastened tho hook to a long ropa aud
baiting it with a piece of pork, throw it into
the sea, aud the shark instantly swallowed it.
Having thus hooked him, by means uf a wind
las they hoisted him on board. After ho was
dead they prepared to open him, when ono of
the sailors, stooping down for that purpose,
suddenly paused, and after listening a few mo
ments, declarod most solemnly ho hoard a low
guturnl sound, which appcarod to proceed from
the shark. Tho sailors, after onjoyiuga hearty
In ugh at his expense, proceeded to listen lor
themselves, whon they heard n similar sound.
Thoy then proceeded to open the shark whon
tho mystery was explained.
It appears that the sailor was not dead,' but
in a trance; and his son, on making this dis
covery when inside tho shark,| had by means
of a knife, ripped open the blanket. Having
thus liberated bis father, they both went to
Work and righted up the old grindstone?the
boy was turning, the father was holding on to
the old ship carpenter's aze, sharpening it for
the purpose of cutting their way out of their
Jonah, like prison, which occasioned the noise
heard by the. sailor. Ah it was the hottest
season of the year, and yery littlo sir .stirring

Time at Hfa Work.
I saw a temple, reared by the hands of man,
standing with high pinnacle in the distant
plain. The streams beat about it?tho God of
nature hurled his thunderbolts against it, yet
it Btood as firm as adamant. Revelry was in
the halls ; the gay, the happy, the young, the
beautiful were there. I returned?and lo!?
the temple was no more. Its high walls lay in
scattered ruin ; and at the midnight hour the
owl's long cry added to tho deep solitude. The
ybuug and gay who had reveled there had
I saw a child rejoicing in his youth, the idol
of his mothor, and the pride of his father. I
returned and that child had become old.
Trembling with the weight of years, he stood
the last uf his generation, a stranger amidst
the desolation around him. . ?>
I saw an old oak standing in all its pride
upon the mountain ; the birds wero caroling in
its boughs. I returned, and tho oak was lcsf
less and sapless, and the winds wore playing at
their pastimes through its branches.
"Who is the destroyer," said I to my guar
"It is Time," said he. When tho morning
stars song for joy over the new made world he
commenced his course; and when he has de
stroyed all that is beautiful on earth; plucked
the Bun from his sphere; veiled tho moon in
blood; yea, when he shall havo rolled the
heaven arid earth away as a scroll, then shall
an angel from th? throne Of God come forth,
and with one foot upon the sea and one upon
the laud, lift up his hand*towards heaven, and
swear by Heaven's Eternal, Time is, Time was,

Never insure your life for the benefit of
your wife for a greater sum than ten thousand
dollars. A widow with more money than that
is a dangerous legacy to leave posterity.
The "game of life" is very like a game of
cards. Time deals, death cuts, and everybody
is waiting for the last trump.
I think men drink in crowds because they
are afraid to drink by themselves. It requires
a good deal of courage to stand up alone and
pour a glass of whiskey down your throat.
There arc sonic inconsistencies in this world
that I don't exactly understand. Everybody
is anxious to go to heaven, but nobody is in a
hurry about it.
If a man is without enemies I wouldn't give
ten cents for all his friends. The man who
can please .everybody hasn't got sense enough
to displease anybody.
