A'Wz went through trie American
camp, and the scantily dressed soldiers
were seen passing from one tent to another;
the whole exhibited ft acene of confusion
and anxiety, and the deep touches of in

of officers and men gnve evidence that a
more than common sacrifice was expected
from one or from all. . ,, i . . ..... ,
The "Star Spangled Banner'? .. waved
proudly in the breeze, and the insignia: of
command arranged in due order before one
of die principal tents pointed out the soldier-like
habitation of the chief warrior.
The general sat at his tent, his head was
pensively reclining on his hand, as he
mused on the asperities of a soldier's for
tune, and perhaps in his reverie, he heard
the tones, of his sweet Clara's voice,' as
she sang, . , .
j.. . ; "Rest, warrior, reav." . . ,
" He was in that kind of reverie from
which it is painful to be aroused, and the
indulgence of which is maiked 'with all

George, Wortly entered. A deep gloom
was on his countenance, indicative of feel
ings which brooded over some blighted
hope over some fond remembrance which
had once been all sunshine, but which now
darkened ou his soul." He entered, but
without any military, formalities, and was
kindly received by his superior officer,
who never considered his presence an in
trusion. George's countenance assumed,
if possible, a deeper shade of melancholy
as he opened the conversation, by inform
ing the General that he offered to gq on
the proposed adventure. , .. ',
The General answered : J . .
"George there are many whonr we can
belter spare. An ignominious death
awaits you if discovered; and ihould you
return safe you will have the honor ' que
to a spy." . .,".'. .' ". '
"It is my wish to go,", rejoined -!Wort-ley.
"These brave -fellows have somer
thing to bind thera to the world.. You
know my tale. ' Miaery has made me drink
deep of his cup; and a broken heart little
recks of joy or life.' All things are ready
and I go to-night. If, 1 Wl, give a tear

General, 'who rising ' from his scat,

darkness that always reigned ' there, he
came to his boat peacefully moored in the
romantic little bav. and in a few minutes
he. saw something at the further end of
the boat, which had hitherto remained Un

in his usual gloomy reflections, when start
ing from his trance of feeling, he laid his
hand Upon his dagger, and - sternly eyed
the beintr coiled in the boat; and to go back
withxut accomplishing' the object of his
visit was fo brand himself with the epitaph
of a coward.' '. Here his feelings became so
excited that he exclaimed: -' -ms -..
" "Death sooner than infamy!" ''" t . i f .
' His next thought as a matter of -self-defense
was to consign the poor boy to the
mercy of the waves. ' . '
The hunchback boy; with si voice and
manner 'of touching- tenderness, peculiar
to himself, said: v "' t . .:. 'i.,.
"Think Nab let Mr; Wortly go with no
body among them British?" ' -l'
Wortly hang his bead to think; that he
had meditated an injury to a being who
felt so deeply interested in his wellare.

not to excite suspicion, he mounted the
side, and with a beating' heart, trod-the
proud decks of a British man-of-war"
; He mingled with the dusty forms that
gathered around the masts and listened te
their simple tales of love-which had blessed
them beneath another sky. - His heart flut
tered wildly as he heard the seamen from
his "guarded way" proclaim to the rising
moon:'"' i"-h.-..! '.'. ''d -i) i.'i

The hunchback boy instinctively stole
away and concealed" himself in some: re
tired corner.' The sailors were reposing
in their hammocks, and only now and then
persons were seen passing to and fro from
onepart ef the vessel to another. The
warm blood bounded to Wortley head- -burned
for a moment, - and then rushed
back to his almost unpalpitating heart, as
he listened to the last dying pensive ca
dence of a female voice.: ; It was ' such as
recalled to his mind a sound .which' bad

Georrre Wortlev and Martha Woodville
wSN tile bride of two different villages' In
ths interior of ths United States."" Their
tale was one of perbapalob frequent oc
ourrence. They saw eacK other loved
and were engaged and that engagement
was approved by a mother ever solicitous
for her daughter's happiness; Her father
bad "rejoined the stars', arid hone had i
right to interfere aught against these ' con
cranial ;iniri La. Thsi hi-idnl dav 'was Sn
Eointed, and lime smoothing his wrinkled!
row leaned on the anchor of hoT., and
smiled benignly, on the bliss of human
hearis, .. ,
., The song which Martha had been sing
ing on board the vessel was ons penned by
Wortley in ths days' of his happy, court
shin. - Her ' guardian, Mao' Dole,' was a
person whom she had been taught to re
spect and look up to with reverence, for be
had ever been considered a virtuous, amia
ble and worthy man. He violently opposed
Wortley's suit, and succeeded in extorting
f m r . . . . .
a promise irom Manna not to -wea wun
out his consent, ;-He had other objects in
view than Martha's happiness.,; He .had
sold his honor to those talents which should
have been devoted to his ' country's good,
for British Gold, and that power demanded
some one as hostage, that he would not
turn from his oourse of villainy. i. .. As such
a hostage be delivered, up Martha .Wood
ville to men whose honor he knew' not.
Such was the cause of her preBence'on
board the enemy's vessel. ! ! - l"
: i The night of Wortley's capture roiled
heavily sway, and mental agony forbade
him the sweets of repose; Mnrtha passed
the bight in doubts and anxiety. "'
'' Nor was the time of Mao Dole less
sleepless for the wolf in pursuit of blood
wulbowlen through the nocturnal season
7, The, morning came., A he sun arose
brilliantly and imparted his splendor to the
scenery of the Lake. " The officers' had
met as a Court Martial,' and Capt. Wort
ley was arraigned as a spy, beforo men
whose minds, bad been embittered against
him by the tales of Mac Dole. .He. did
not deny the charge,.andhe was sentenced
to the 'yard arm1 with a respite till the
next morning at sunrise. ; ; - i i'l
,, Martha, who bad broken ;from the hold
of her guardian, ran upon tbe deck and
fell in Wortley's arms, shrieking: ' '
"Save him! ' Save him!" ' " r"' '"' ' "

this: " For some' months past notwith
standing that business and ' travel have
been sadly depressed, the traffic of the
Pennsylvania Railroad has been , steadily
increasing over all others. , Its stock and
bonds have sympathized i i this, prosperity
gradually rising in price,' until the for
mer sells at 44, while thd first bonds are
at par and the second At 93., Now, much
of, this great prosperity is due to ,s. very
simple expedient advertising. ..The Com
pany have been advertising largely in New
England,, and per consequence,' the 'cash
receipts at the New York office have in
creased 86 per cent, since thai advertising

this expenditure are now realized at 'a time
when they are most needed; thus proving

' It may therefore be1 well to bear in mind
a few practical facts itl regard to Yentilla
tfon. We crowd'oUr families' into air-tight
sleeping '' rooms' anil ourselves into ' illy
ventillated cfiufches.; ' Our chijdreii bsve
colds; we wonder at It, and say "they hare
not been much out of doors'."' Our friends
cough they, were' out to church last eve
ning. ' Let us investigate in regard to the
"fqctt. In order to dti thfs effectually,
we may premise a few simple Physiological
laws of respiration. ' A health v adult re
spires about sixteen times per minute,' in
haling at each Inspiration about one quart
of atmospherio ' air, depriving 'It ' of its
oxygen,' and thereby rendering it irrespi
rable. Four gallons every minute, and
four hogsheads of air every hour" is thus
destroyed by each individual. "Now,1 by a
simple mathematical calculation, how long,
at twenty or twenty-Eve hogsheads" per
hour,' will it require five or six persons to
exhaust! the wholesome air of a small, un
ventillated dormitory? Or," at the same
rate of consumption, suppose five huudred
persons be crowded into an ordinary sized-
church or lecture room, without ventilla
tion, (heated as' usual by a furnace pr close
stoves) destroying 2000 hogsheads of air
per hour, how much air, fit 'for healthy
respiration,' will remain after the first half
hour? , . ' ' , .
. As to the consequences of such impru
dence or, ignorance, let Philosophy and
Physiology bear testimony., Atmospheric
air is composed of two elements. Oxygen
and Nitrogen,! in definite ; proportions of
about one-fifth j of the. former,, and four
fifths of ,lhe latter. ( , Nitrogen, alone, will
not fora moment support i either combus
tion or animal life, not that . its properties
are poisonous, but that it excludes Oxygen,
the great . vitalizer. ,..,, -lv
In the ant of respiiation our lungs sepa
rate these elements, setting the Nitrogen
free and appropriating the Oxygen, which
is a constant essential for the purification
of the blood.- An imperfect, supply. tof
Oxygen, therefore, impoverishes (be blood

' The" ultimate consequences of inhaling
impure air, are constitutional derangement.
and permanently, ill health. Hence the
perceptible difference in favor of those who
