BY MRS. HARRIET E. FRANCES. WINTER IS COMING.
Ugh! Hie. wind comes keenly, and Ve
shrink shiveiing frnm it! oulumnish breath.
It it too early in the season yet for brisk fires,
and thick over-coots look effeminate in these
bright fall days, bul winter is coming one
pace, and his forerunners are among us with
the chilliness of hit icy breath about their
skirts, and making Jhrir msrk upon the woods.
The leaves are as many colored as a dying
dolphin, and like him, it is the hand of death
that is painting them in such bright linU. Ere
long the last leaves will have fallen, and win
ter will, then have no .obstacles in the grand
old woods to cheek his onward progress. The
North 'wind will bring his ice-crowned maj'.sly
on I h rough the gaunt stark limbs 'of the denu
ded trees without let or hindrance, and we
may eocu look for his in coming.
And oh I that coming of winter ! with the
favced sons ami daughters of humanity, the
ooming'bf ihe season of mow and ice only in
volve! Ihe ordering of new furs and thick toft
clothes fil ing up of the bin with conl the

and of sleigh ridett, and those happiest hours

gathers his loved ones about his hearth-stone
of a winter's'night, and when the bowling
blast outside only enhances the appreciation

"A pleasant truth the North wind Maws,
V heu thai'i without and ye w.th tn."
And that terrible wind, fresh from frozen
regions, that makes such brave music in your
chimney, mid around the angles and gables of
your comfortable, mansion, how it entries mis
ery and desolation into many human heart.
Winter brings terror to those who lack (he
comforts of home, who pine for food in cheer-
lens-dens, and who hove not sufficient clothing
to bid defiance lo the blast. There m a wide
field in a great city for the practice, af charity.
and these who have encuh, and to spare of
thil world a goods, cannot better evince their
'appreciation of the blessings (bey enjoy, than
by lending a help themselves. Winter is

CRIMINALS WHO HAVE RETURNED TO LIFE
..The following singular circumstance is re
corded by Dr. Plot, in bis Natural History of
In the year 1650, Auue Green, a servant of
Thomas Read, was ttied h the murder of her
ne born child, and found guilty. She -was
executed at the court-yard at Oxford, wh;re
she'hting about half an hour. Being cut down
she was put into a coll n, ar.d brought away to
s bouse to be dissected, where, when they
opened the coffin, notwithstanding the rrpe
remained unloosed and ktroight about her
neck, they perceived her breast (orise, where
upon one Meson, a tailor, intending only id
act of chority, set his foot upon her, and, as
some say, one Utuin, a soldier, struck her
again wilh the butt end of t is musket. Not
wiihstanding all which, when the learned and
eininet Sir William Perry, ancestor of the pre
sent Murquis of Landsowne, then Anatomy
Professor of the University, Dr. Wall's ond
Dr. Ciark. then President of the Maedalen
College and Vice Chancellor of the TJinversi
ty, came to prepare Hie body for dissection
they perceived some small rattling in her
throat; they presently used means' Jor her re
covery by opening a n in, laying her in s warm
bed, and also using divers remedies respecting
her senselessness, insomuch that withMi four
teen hours she began to speak, and the next
day talked and prayed very heartily. During
Ihe time of thu her recovering, the officers
concerned in her execution would needs have
had her away again lo have completed it on
her; but by the mediition of the worthy doc
tors ond some other friends with Hie then
governor of the city. Col. Ke'lsy, there tvas a
guard put upon her Irum all further disturb
ance until they had sued out her paidun from
the goternmtt. Much doubt indeed arose as
to her actual guilt. Crowds of people in the
meantime came to see her, and many asserted
it must be the providence of God, who would
thus assert her innocence.
After somo lime, Dr. Pretty, hearing she
discoursed with those about liet, and inspect
ing that the woman might suggest unto he: to
relale sometli'rig ot strange visions and appari
tions she had seen during the time she eeeirred
to be dead, (which they had already begun to-
do, telling that she said she had teen 111 a one
green meadow, having river running around
it, and all things glittered there like silver
and gold.) he cuused ull to depurt from the
room but the gentlemen of Ihe faculty who
were to have been at the dissection, and ask
ed her concerning her sense and apprthen
s'ons during the time she was hanged. To
which she answered, that she neither re
membered how the fetters were knocked off,
or how she went out of pnson; when she was
turned olT the ladder, whether any psalm wat
sung or not , nor was the sensible of any pains
that she could remember. She came to her
self as if she awakened out of a fkep sleep,
not recovering the use of her speech by slow
degrees, but in a manner altogether, beginning
to speok just where she left off on the gal
lows. Being Ums at lenetli perfectly recovered,
after thanks given to God, and the persons in
strumental in bringing her to life, and procur
ing ber an immunity fiom further punishment,
she retired in the country to her friende, at
Steeple Barton, where she was afterwards
married, and lived iu good repute amongst her
neighbors, having three children, and not dy
ing till 1659.
The following account 01 the case or the
girl who was wrongfully executed in 1766, is
given by a celebrated French author, as an in
stance of the injustice which was often com
muted by the equivocal mod of trial then
used in France.
About seventeen years since, a young pea
sant girl was placed at Paris, in the service of
a man, Who, smitten with her beauty, tried to
inveigle ber; but the was viiiuous.and resist
ed. Tlie prudence of this girl irritated the
master, and he determined on revenue, tie
secretly conveyed into her box many things
belonging to him, marked with his name.
He then exclaimed that lift was rohbed, call -d
in a commissair, (a ministerial officer of jus
tice,) sud made his deposition. The girl's
box wat searched, and the' things were Jis
covered. The unhappy fervant was Impris
oned. i-he defended herself only with her tears;
she had no evidence to prove that she did not
put the properly in her trunk, and Ber answer
to Hie inltrrogatories was tbnl she was inno
cent. The judges had qo suspicion .of the
depravity of fhe accuser, whose station was
respectable, and they administered the law in
all lis rigor. The innocent girl was condemn
ed to be hanged. Tlie dreo. ful office was in
effectually performed, as it was the first ot
teinpt.of the son of Hits chief executioner.
A surgeon had purchased the body for disscc
Hon, and il was conveyed lo' his house. Ou
that evening, being obout lo open her head,
he perceived a gentle warmth about tho body.
The dissecting knife fell from his hand, and
he placed in a bed her w.hoin he was about to
w His efforts to restore her to life were effec
tual, and at the same time he sent for a cler-,
gyman on whose discretion and experience he
could depend, in order to consult with him on
this strange event as well as to have him for a
witness to his conduct. The moment the un
fortunate gill opened her eyes she btlieved
herself in other world, and perceiving the fig
ure of the priest, who had aTi.irked and mat
iestic countenance, she joined her hands and
claimed, "Eternal Father, you know my in
nocence, have pity on me !" In this manner
she continued to invoke tbe ecclesiastic, be
lieving in hesimpliclty, that she beheld ber
God. They were long in persuading her that
she was not dead s. so much bad 'the idea of
the punishment and death possessed her imagi
nation. . "
-The girl having returned lo life and health,
she retired to hide t.trsell in. a distant village
fearing to meet the judges or- the officers,. woo,
with the dreadful tree, incessantly haunted ber
nnngination. The accuser remained unpun
ished, because his crime, although manifested
by.two individual witnesses, was not clear to
the eve of the law. The peonle subsequent
ly become acquainted with tbe resurreotion of
this girl ond loaded with reproach the sumo
of her miiery.

A few days ago, a mon was telling two of bis
neighbors in my hearing a pretty larire story.
Says I "stranger thol's 0 whapper."'
Soys he, "lay ihre, stranger."
And in the tw inkling of an eye I found my
self in the dileh, the worse for wear and tear.
Upon another occasion aays I toi man I
never saw before, as a woman passed:
"That isn't a specimen of your western wo
men I should think f"
Says he, "you are afraid of fever and ague,
stranger; ain't youf"
"Very much." says I.
"Well," replied he, "Hint lady is my wife,
and if you don't apologise in two minutes, by
the honor df 0 gentleman, I swear that these
two pistols (which he held cocked in his hand)
shall cure y.iu of that disorder entirely so
don't fear stronger?"
So I knell dowu and politely apologized.
I admire this western country much; but
curse me if I can stand so much etiquette; it

tire morning of the 141 h, on his own premises
wilh his hefd Completely severed from his
body, snd other ire horribly mutilated, having
the appearance of having been done with
some sharp instrument. An Irishman on the

wuh iliv, Is suspected; he is still at larce
. Many of the papers took it for a genuine
occurrence, but some editorial genus has car
ried out the juke by adding tbe parr-graph be

has been completely cured, lle'had a narrow
escape, however, and he solemnly realizes the

was not an irishman, a staled, but a Acytk

as I listened I crew light of heart, and my
spirits danced gayly to the sound, tiltl fancied
mvselfa being no longer 01 eann, dui tioauiu
hieh on magic pinions of air.- It ceased, the
spell was broken, and the enchanted spirit
quietly sunk back into its wonted mood. Ihen
came a low, rich strain, "sucn a wnen w in us
and harp strings meet," so sad and yet so
beautiful. On tbe still evening air it rose,
plaintive ond high, tlren slowlv died away,
like tome lone spirit's wail. Oli! it seeinrd
like music fiom another world. 1 wept, I
know not why; but lo me oil naluro had put
on a sombre hue, and pensive thoughts stole
thick ond fast into ths chambers of the soul.
Then I looked up to the clear, quiel stars,
and wishd I might soar away, and listen to
Ihe t.orps or heaven. Kow srlonge 1 power
hath music over Ihe human heart I It hinds
ir with a fascinating resistless spell, and bears
it aloft on the wings of imagination; then lets
it gtnll) fall to the earth, end leaves it where
it was before. For the glad hours of man il
hath joyous notes, ami a soothing strain for
his ilortter moments. ''Sing to me," said the
dving boy to his mother, and then his eye wss
dim, and Ihe death damp gathered on his brow
and every other avenue; to earth was sealed
up; those low rweet tones fell like" the pre
luile of heaven on his eor, atid beneath their
melody bis spirit passed away.
The world is full of music, anil oft it giveth
forth a mournful sound, as though it bewailed
its hapless stale, and would find relief in sad
complainings. Its moan is hrard in Ihe night
bretezo, in the falling rain and in the coning
s'.onn. It sweeps over the heart anil s.ills its
mirth, and turns 11 away sick of earth's vani
ties, to weep in loneliness. Some one has
so id, Mich dirge-like mil. ic had bten unknown

den the spirit and harmonize with its sorrow.
See yonder grave where the lone manioc sits
and weeps, and sings htr wild requeum to the
storm. Poor maiden! il is winter iu thy soul,
and to thee the howling winds make strange
music, and echo back thy own sad plaint..
Thy harp is all unstrung, but when thy path
less spirit shall return from it wanderings, "it
ahull wake to the sound of tbe seraphim's
But, linger not, my muse, so mournfully
amid Ihi lute strings. Such s'rnins befit thee
not, Ihey are ot the earth ond shall pass a ay.
Look now to yonder world, where angels sing.
and the glad song of the redetmed is ever rol-
li;ie heaven's hitti arches. Listen lo their
eternal rapture, and lei thy heart rise and
