THE F E M A lli E GUIDE
THE VICTOKY OF IttAltlON.
The Carolinas had fallen. ' Their chief
oily was in the hands of the enemy, while
the latter overran all parts of the province
ltu impunity. But that wave which
threatened to overwhelm and destroy every
tefititre of liberty with its resistless nower
and volume, at last began to recede and
threaten iu turn the perpetrators of those
acts of tyranny and oppression 1 he. dis
turbers 01 that tranquil sea. ilie feeble
band of patriots which still hovered found
the Standard of freedom, stuug to the quick
by the aots of their ruthless toes, and . Jed
by Marion and other noble spirits, though
at first despised, soon made their efforts
tell for the glorious cause in which they
in the midst of these scenes our story
X lie sun had sunk behind the western
hills, but though unseen, sortie traces 01
ts brilliancy still remained. Ihe clouds
which loomed up iu the western sky,
touched and timed by his receding rays,
looked like a sea of multon tfold. The luce
of Naiuie, bathed in the deepening twilight,
appeared liiellably beautiful.
At. this hour, upon the verandah of a
noble maus'ion, which, reared its stately
walla from a sliirht eminence on the banks
of the Black Mingo, were seated two per
sona. 1 he hist was the daughter ol Hie
proprietor of the eslaie. As to her fea
tures, suuice it to say that the world called
her beautiful. Her companion was a young
man. - His features were regular, and
would have been called handsome, were it
not for their sinister expression. He was
dressed in the complete uniform of his
British niHjesiv's service, he being a lieu
tenant in the army of the crown, ihe in
terview between the two was evidently em
barrassing, for the countenanced of boih
were flushed, and on the" face of the mtud-
eii there lurked an expression ot pain.
For a while, neither spoke, and the silence
was becoming painful,' when the young
man, at last, exclaimed: " " '
"And so your decision is final you re
ject my sun.
"1 do, was the reply. , ., -.
"For what reason?" . ,. .
"1 love you not.'' , i . . ,
"Ha! you love another?"
"I do." " -'"I '
"The lucky one is Charles Sommerfield,
'While doubling your authority to ques
tion, I will admit that he is the one ; and
now leave) me, sir, I would be alone this
interview has been sufficiently painful for
me not to wish it prolonged further."
".Lieutenant Blonde intrudes not Ions' it
his piesence is not desired; but, .before he
leaves, he wishes to say a few words to
her who has unmeshed his soul," replied
the young roan, passionately "Rose, for
your love'i nave strove many long ana
bitter years, and, though sometimes des
pairing, still I - haye ever hoped. The
though', the hope of calling you my wife,
has b. en that which has buoyed up my
sinking spirits, through many bitter toils;
and uoir to be supplanted by a graceless
rebel, almost drives me mad. . Kose, he
added, with ' startling vehemence, "you
shall be mine,' your lather has consented
to tho union, and mine you ehnii be,
though all the fiends conspire to baffle me.
As to this Lharles bommeibeld, X am
aware of his having entered our array iu
the capacity of a spy, and if ever he comes
within my power, X 11 crush nim as x
would a viper. He shall rue the day he
ever crossed the path of-" r
'Leave me, sir; leave me,"' pried the
maiden. "Your language " is insulting,
your presence insufferable," and sailing
ihe action to the word, Rose Linden left
her seat, and moved haughtily within the
house, leaving the discomfited youth alone
19 his thoughts.
' As she did so a email slip of paper un
known to her, fell from its concealment.
It caught the qui :k eye of the officer, who
haatily nicked it t and eagerly scanned

Another day with its' ligh's'and', shades
ila joys and sorrow's',' had passed,'' and'-an-1
other night; nlrh and beautiful as its pro
decessora, was ushered in, Ilose .Lindon
occupied, the verandah 9f.J1.er. mansion
home, as. 011 the, evening preceding, but
now she Was alone.' For a while she thus
sat, deeply merged in thought.''' ' ' ; '
' She dwelt upon' the scene so . shortly
passed, and strove lo auger from them her
future life-... The galloping of a horse sud
denly attracted lier attention, nnd turning
to where the noise proceeded she saw a
single ' horseman rapidly npprbaahing.
The one who rode thus rapidly was a tine
and comely youth,, a; noble specimen of
mnuly sym,meliy nnd. grace. . xor awhile
he thus dashed along' tho road, until, ar
rived opposite the mansion; he suddenly
checked hia horse, and vaulting lightly
from bis saddle revealed to her gaze the
features of, Charles Sommerfield. A hasty
ejaculation', a mutal embrace . spoke vol
umes of the love existing between them
aud A long separation.1 " " ' ' : 1
"Oh, Charles," exclaimed the maiden,
"how dare you seek me thus? how dare
you Must yourself among your foes?"
"To 6ee thee, love, parity was the ob
ject of my visit, to venture thus 'among
my.foes, dearest.' Did you . receive my
','1 did,", replied Rose; "but, oh, Charles
it has been the cause of much anxiety to
me. You know not what I fear."' '
'Why, how should it thus distress you?"
' "I received it yesterday morning, and
had it in my possession at evening ; but
now il is gone. 1 Charles," continued the
maiden, almost fearfully. "Lieutenant
Blonde has been here, and, I fear, has ob
tained 'possession of it.' Oh, how I detest
that maul He is a desperately deep dyed
villiau aud from his language means harm
to you. ' He , is. cognizant . of the fact of
your having entered among them as a spy.
and, as he fears you as a rival, will strive
to crush you. - Even now I tremble for
your safetyl" -t ! . ,:
"Heed him not, Rose. You are too
sensitive for my safety. The danger here
cannot be greater than where I 6erve, for
at best the fortunes of war are tickle.
Biit as to this band of tories in which he
holds command, where is their camp, for
to obtain this information I have sought
"A mile from Ihe bridge below upon the
banks of the Mingo," replied Rose, "but
hark, there is a sound of approaching cav
alry. It is Lieutenant Blonde, and Ins
band, dearest, fly lor your lite. Uh, haste
for the love you bear me, to seek your
horse ere it ia too late!" 1
Snatching a kiss from the pallid lips of
the one beside him, the youth sprang for
ward and darted down the walk.
, Let us now return to Lieutenant Blonde.
After obtaining possession of the letter in
the manner we have eeen, he determined
to avail himself of the contents, - lie rap
idly paced his way to camp and there sin
gled out from among the motley crew a
half score of bold, desperate ruffians, who
were sufficiently in his interest to insure
success and theu instructing them in the
duty allotted to them, impatiently awaited
ihe hour for him to act. . The night sue.
ceeding his iuterview with Rose Lindon,
liHf!. scarcely obtained mastery over the
light of day, before he placed himself at
the head, of his little troop and was dash
ing silently but rapidly toward the mansion
ol the Liudons, . He had scarce gained
the bridge which passed over the dark
wateis of Mingo, in sight of his destina
tion, when a young and agile man darted
down the walk which led up to the house,
and attempted to. regain his horse. The
officer had no doubt of his being the one
he sought, and accordingly urged his men
forward at the hight of their horse's speed
and succeeding in surrounding him ere he
had time to mount. 1 -. i . - r ;
;l"Seixe him! capture the spy!" com
manded the Lieutenant. r
. But the youth, whom they , had sur
rouuded was no coward, and withall no
unskillful hand wilh the sword, as more
than one of the desperadoes found to his
cost. But the odds'were too overwhel
ming to make it long doubtful as to the
issue. The young man was overpowered
and wounded; faint from loss of blood, he
was placed upon a horse,! and the ' caval
cade galloped back to camp. .
Rose Lindon had been a mute but' all
absorbed witness of the scene. With the
keenest anguish she saw the " capture of
her lover1, almost despairing she saw them
bear him hence. But she was one that
6oared above the t'ials which surrounded
her rather than one. that sunk beneath
their weight. Instantly her resolve was
taken. Calling the' negro servant, she
bade him prepare her horse, and then re
tired to her apartment, where she disguised
herself in a suit of man's attire that ex
actly fitted to lier person. The dark, shi
ninif ringlets were carefully concealed be
neath a black velvet riding cap, from which
dropped a single plume. .Thus arrayed,
she mounted tier horse and sped almost
with the rapidity of thought in the direc
tion of the camp of Marion. It was in
deed, a lovely, a1 "brilliant night. : The
moon. which by this time had arisen, rolled
mystically through the arch of heaven,
ba'thing the scene in a. flood of golden

"J. am," rejoined ,the girl., ."It was .to

"Ah! and where day he be?"' '
"Upon the bank of the Black Mingo, he
and his crew now hold their revels.
Charles Sommerfield is their, prisoner."
"Charles Sommerfield their prisoner?
Why he left the camp this afternoon. - It
cannot be." ' '' ' " 1
- "It is no less a fact. He is their pris

unless prompt measures are taken for his

you say?" ' " ''

her plumed cap from off her brow, the
silken ringlets fell in profusion 'down her
snowy neck. " -: " '
."iiose Lindon, ot a truth, lis euuicient.
He must, be rescued, aud . that, this very
night.. You will be our guide to the tory
camp, will you not?"
The maiden bowed assent, and instantly
Marion left the .tent and ordered the brig
ade to arms. The baud of men under
the control jof Marion was soon ready,
armed and equipped for the combat, and
then, wilh the nohlo pafrtot maid as their
guide, they sought' their foe.' Rose felt
somewhat embarrassed at tiie novel posi-
manner of MarioirV-, ''put her at ease.
She was surrounded by rough and un
couth forms but she knew that beneath
that rough exteiior there beat noble hearts.
Hearts which would yield up life, itself
for ihe cause of liberty,, would meet death
for her. The intervening ground between
Lynch'e Creek and Ball's command Was
passed in a comparatively short period,
and the band of patriots i'ound themselves
near the scene of" strife. 'They had hoped
to. 6urpiise the tories, but in crossing ihe
bridge over the Mingo they were startled
by the report of a gun, the Bijjnal of their
approach. Scarce had the boom of the
gun, filed to arouse ths tory camp, died
uway. ere the whole brigade was flying over
the ground at their horses utmost speed,
for the moment required as great celerity
as their movements hitherto had required
caution! A few moments and they were
in ihe midst of their surprised, half awa
kened enemies dealing death to al opposed ,
to their furious onslaught. It was a fear
ful scene.' The fierce clash of arms
ifee heavy tramp of the flying cavalry, the
shrieks of lbs wounded, ihe groans of ,
ihe dying, the plea for meicy from the de
scending blade, all rendered it a M-ene of
terror, horror, and "daik confusion dire."
But it was. soon ' passed.' As the fierce
blast of the tornado's breath 6trew the
earth wilh wreck, the band of Marion had
met their foes. Lieutenant Blonde was
one upon whose brow death had placed
his siuget. He died a sacrifice to his own
revenge while those agairist whom he
plotted were thus restored to each others'
arms. ,. ... .., ;; .-, " .... -1
, As the smoke of the battle cleared from
the field, the surviving patriots gave three
hearty clieera for Rose Lindon,' the guide,
anil then retired and slept peacefully upon
ihe- banks of, the black Mingo, ihe scene
of the victory of Marion. ;,. 1 ,, ,
"The Detroit ''Advertiser"' gives a
new method of computing iuterest on any
number of dollars at . 6 per cent, which
appears simple. Separate the, right hand
figure by a point, and the figures on the
left hand of this separating point will be
the interest in cents for six days the
figure on tho right of the point, decimals
of a cent. "Multiply the amount" by .ft to
find the interest for thirty doyt, and this
sum by two for sixty days, three for ninety
days, &c. For any number of days lent
than six, take the fractional part of the
interest for six. Care must be taken to
separate the right hand figure of the dol
lar, whether there .be cents and mills in
the given 6um or not. . . . . . .,: ,

We liavo do 'doubt 1 Tint this fact will
start out of ihe future as brilliantly as ever
did the colonization of California out of
the past, and il.at niillioiut of miners will
be picking and pulverizing quartz along
the Foumaine qui Bouil in the future, jVut
as they are about the sources of Feniher
and Frazier livers at present. This will
impres's upon -the social growth of the
mountainous regions of tiie continent and
upon the adjacent pastoral lands, a culti
vation very far dilierent from that which
the lute Administration aud the Southern
oliticia:is have both so confidently hoped
for, and so preeistently worked for through
eveiy device of xtrategy or legislation. In
the presence of the gold mountain, in the
n tenor, the Dred racott Decision - with its
negro-propagatula , clauses will, sink into
absolute ridicule. ro XSrazilIian curse will
ever Atncamze that JM JJurado. I hat
which through lontf stiuggle lias been ini
tiated as the policy of Freedom upon the
plains of the adjacent table lauds, will also
o'jtain under these fortunate auspices in all
the intermediate provinces, from Arizoma
to Utah. ' Of courrte we sbal' expect' the
conflict; we shall see the attempt made ;
we shall witness the . blessed Constitution
perambulating the ranches," and visiting,
he iliirgiiigs, with the negro on r.s
back;, but we shall never see the institu
tion" occupy another foot of the interior
basin of the United States, or defile the
cierras that dominate that; basin with, their
accumulated treasures, lit complicated
avocation, inspaiirigly remunerative em
ployments', there i room lor eopluslries ol
those who uphold the slave system; and
hence we find'that. in "the 'tillage of the
earth, and in the service of "the "person, its
advocates have not been slow to make an
impression upon; th prejudices of many
communities. . iiul where the labor question
is naked in its presentation, direct in re
lations, and exciiinjr in its ambition, Ihere
is no prospect of establishing a conventional
system of impoverishment -sach as negro
slavery. For this . reason, we claim the
late lro'd discoveries as pioneer disclosures,
planting the banner f Free Soil and Free
Labor in the heart of the nation, and we
claim the Mountain States of the center as
the home of the white race in all future
time, xn those remote regions, w nere
accidental systems and associations were
o liable toobtain, it needed perhaps some
great manifestation of Nature, such as the
aforenamed, to compress popula.ion and
opinions into true chaunol at. the. onset.
With the vicious taint ot Mormoaisro in
Utah, Peonage in New Mexico, and Bu
chauism al Washington," it might have
been difficult to mould the encompassed
Territory into duei proportions of freedom;
but now we, may as well assured that a
cluster of new commonwealths will spring
up there, founded in all ihe essential prin
ciples of industiial ' and .social progress.
Ihe btatea of the X'acibo will give hand
to the Slates of the Atlantic across a tier
of free communilies, and building up by
their conjunction the great highway 01 the
world, will claim its transports and ex
change for the labor of our own color and
the wealth of our own people. - Are we
premature, then, in :poinling to the sands
thai glitter upon the affluents of the . Ar
kansas and the Rio Grand as containing in
themselves the solution of a social prob
lem, mid the repression of a social evil
which the rich moulds of the West failed

Qpupseyas briefly as. follows; On the
27th day of August, ' 1fj7," Mr. Pierre
pont' addressed a letter' to 'D'Cliaiining1.'
in the spirit world, - stating that -he had
through several mediums,' been requested,
by what purported to be his spirit. to make
liimolf acquainted wilh , the facta and
philosophy of spiritualism, and that, if il
was true, he wished -Dr. Chnnning to eo
inform hrm, and givo hirh such other in
formation as . he might perceive that he
needed. ; ..; ,. -..
'The letter was put in an envelope, pasted
aii'd sealed with his 6eal, aiid sent to J. V;
Mansfield for answer, without his opening
it. No pers.nr knew that he had. written
such a letter, and, he waited .some two
weeks for a reply, and received none. His
grand daughter who was a medium, called
on him. ami Mr. Pierrepont asked if the
epiiit of Dr. ' Channing was present?
The- answer was -: written: '.Yes. . Mr.
Pierrepont .asked liira: 'Are you aware
that I have written you a letter? . . Answer:
Ye;' and I have been tiying to get the
contiol of Mr. Mansfield,. eo as to reply lo
it through hirm :
A few days, after this he. received a
lengthy and specific answer from Mr.
Mansfield, which he rend, and which con
tained several extracts from his letter, and
the replies were such as to fchow conclu
sively that the writer knew not only the
contents of the letter, bul several other
private matters not men tioned in the letter.
Mr. Pierrepont exhibited his letter sent to
Dr. Channing, caro of Mr. Mansfield, with
the seal and envelope unbroken, . and it
seemed to be a clear case. : - . ii . 1 f '
; 'Mr. Pierrepont was ill in New "ork,
and Dr. Parker attended him several days
without giving relief. Mr. ' I, wrote" a
letter to his bid' physician, Dri: Goi hhm,
who went to the spirit world many years
since, and prior lo the birth of his grand
daughter, f.o, whose care he addressed the
letter, she living ar the lime in New ' Bed
ford. 'Mr. P; soon received' ail answer
from Dr. Oorham, recommending him what,
to do, which soois lelieved him; but in Dr.
Gorhnm's reply he said, there are two Dr.
Parkers in New. York, one Willard and
tie other Edward Parker, (we believe
these are the names he gave.) This fact
Mr. Pierrepont did not al the time know;
he only knew Dr. Willard Paiker, v ho at
tended him;. his grand-daughter had no
means of knowing either, lie asked where
ihis infoiiiiaiion c:me from. Mr. P. re

This cemetery, which is situstd on Louisa

is accounted for from the fact that' the dis

Several graves , were open yesterday as

mud -puddles. A few moments afterward
the remains of ome poor individual wer

they carried it a short distance, and placed
it by the side of a hole,' and theu made ar
rangements for placing it in its last resting
place. The head of the coffin was let
down, into the water, but,, of course it
would not sink, and immediately rose to
the surface, It was thrust down several
times rather roughly to endeavoi to make
it adhere to the r-oft mud at the bottom,
but it in variably rose again.
, At last it wan shoved in, and the spade
of one of the nefiroea held it until the
other threw in large quantities of hard mud
which served as a weight lokeep the head
down. One of the negroes then, while
the other kept his spade on .the first end,
lowered the foul and sank it in the fcame
manner, kicking , in some mud with his
feet, while the sptde kept the coffin down.
The whole of this section of the ceme

hardly endurable, coming as it does, from
the shallow graves' of water. '

Poor liitld'Amy looked the embodiment
of forloniity, as she watched the long pen
dulous binnches of the Elms sway hither
aud thither, in an ,uncomfoita! le manner.
She wondered what matte 'the rain fall, arid
if the poor little doves felt it through theif
glossy feathers; but she knew it was quite!
useless to ask. her mother, for she would
only tell her not to ask o many question,
and to keep oyt of her way. wi '
Mrs. Howard loved her child, but she
was a bustling, energetic, woman, whose
chief care was lo keep a well ordered and
lidy houte, and she did r.ot understand lha
delicate nature of the littlo Amy, who had
been from infancy, a feeble child,and stood
sadly in need of loving nnd tender sym
pathy. She was hot beautiful- but for
thobe who loved her, there was a depth of
love in her little heart, which only needed
answering sunbeams to ninke it bear sweet
est blossoms, and light up her wan face'
wilh the beauty of contentment. . '
This had been. such a bad day. In the
morning, she had climbed into a chair, to
watch her mother's pioceedings at the'
pastry table, when an unlucky motion of
her hand sent adiiih of Hour to whiten the
floor, calling lorth an impatient reprimand
irom the mother. , , Choking back n rising
sob, she left the table, and essayed to play
wilh her blocks,' building with them a wall
to confine White Lily her kitten. But
kitty, impatient at suelr close imprison
ment, made vigorous efforts lo free herself,,
and as she succeeded, scattered blocks IT
'What ails my pet?' asked Anna, as she'
took the child in her lap, and parting the
hair from her pale face, remarked the look
of weariness in her eyes. . ,
Nothing,' answered Amy, 'only my
head aches soi and 1, can't play without
troubling mother.' t i. .i I
Anna sighed, for. she knew the little-,
heart had sure trials; &o, far into the dusky,
eve, 6he sat with Amy's head .upon her
shoulder; telling of the olden time'when
tho fairies danced by moonlight upon the
green sward, when every hill and dale,'
every river and tiny streamlet, was haunted ,
by unearthly beings, 1 hen she told ot
heaven, made glorious by God and the
Angels, and, as Amy listened, her eyes
beamed with delight, and she exclaimed,
raising her head wiili animation : .
Anna, I must go there, I niust-r-is it,
such a long way?' Suddenly a shadow
darkened her face, as she said sadly, 'Per- '
haps, though,' I should get into the way
of the anvils I am so careless.'
Never, darling.' said the sister, clasp.,
ing more closely, ihe little fuim, which,
in an almost prophetic sense, was too
suroly fading away. ' "-'
A: midnight, there were hurried steps,
and anxious questions, as the household
was awakened by Anna s cry that Amy
was very ill. After days of watching, a
weeping group surrounded the bed of .the :
'Mother,' said Amy's little voce, 'I did,
not mean to- get in your way so much. I
hope I shan't trouble the angels good-by'
mother, 'I am going to sleep. And little
Amy was dead. ': ' , ' '
Long years has the grass grown on
Amy's grave, ami. harebells have rung
their fairy chimes above it, while the birds
sirig 'requiems in the shadowing trees; but'
nightly, as ' she lays, her head upon the
pillow, Mrs. Howard Bees the pale, weary,
lace of. her child, and hears a sweet voice
say, 'Mother, I did noi mean to get in ihe
WMy.' Not all in vain was the lesson
taught by those dying lips. Seeds of gen
tleness were sown in the mother's heart,
which, watered wilh the tears of repent
ance gave premise, of an abundant har
vest of peace.
