From "Quy Livingston," an English Novel.
It was in the beginning of December,
184 , (said Fred Cnrew, j we were sitting
down to dinner after a capital day's cock-
shooting beside myself there were Lord
(Jlontart. Mohun, and Kate, my wire
when we were disluibed by a perfect hail
of knocks nt the hall door. Old Dan
Tucker, or the Spectre Horseman, never
clamored more loudly for admittance.
Fritz, Moli mi's old Austrian servant, went
down to sue what was up, and, on opening
tbe door, was instantly borne down by the
tumultuous rush of Michael Kelly, gentle
man agent to half a dozen estates, nnd at
torney at law. In the two last capacities
he had given, it 6oems, great umbrage to
the neighboring peasantry, and they had
caught him that night as he lelurned home,
intending to put him to death with tbatin-
genuiiy of torture for which these fine,
warm-hearted fellows are justly celebrated.
They did not wish to hurry over tbe en
tertainment, so they hid him iu an upper
chamber, while they called their iiieuus
and neighbors to rejoice with tfiem, ca
rousing in the meantine joyfully below.
The victim contrived to let himself down
from the window, and ran for his life to the
nearest house, which, unluckily, happened
to be the Lodge. Two boys, however,
saw and recognized him as be entered the
demesne, and raised a whoop to show that
they knew where the fox had gone into the
This we made out from a string of inco

Mohun sat on the ball table, swinging
his foot, and regarding the spectacle with
the indolent curiosity that one might ex
hibit toward the gambols of some ugly
new importation of the Zoological Society.
When the 6tory was told he cooly pointed
to the door.
The shriek that the miserable creature
set up on seeing that gesture I shall never
'Do you think I shall turu my house into
a refuge for destitute attorneys?' Ralph
said, answering my look of inquiry. 'If
there were no other reason, 1 would not
risk it, with your wife, under my roof. A
night attack ia the West is no child's play.'
Kate had come out, and was leaning
over the gallery. She heard tbe last words,
and spoke, flushing scarlet' with anger
'If 1 thought my presence prevented an
act Of common humanity, I would leave
your house this instant, Colonel Mohun."
Ralph smiled slightly as he bent his
head in courteous acknowledgment of her
'Don t be indignant, Mrs. Carew. If
you Lave a fancy for such an excitement, I,
shall be too happy to indulge you. It is
settled, then? We back the attorney.
Don't lie there, sir, looking like a whipped
hound. ' You bear? You are safe for the
present.' He had hardly finished, when
there came a rustling of feet outside, then
hurried whispers, then a knock and a sum
mons. . .
'We'd like to spake with the curnel av

'Then I'm afraid you'll be disappointed.
It's not my fancy to give him up. I

You see he took the high moral ground
'Then we'll have him out in spite of yez,'
two or three voices cried out together.
'Try it,' Ralph said, 'Meantime I am
going to dine; good uight.
A voice that had not spoken yet was
heard, with a shrill, gibing accent. 'Ah I
thiu! the best of appetites to ye, curnel, and
make haste over yer dinner. It's Pierce
Delaney that'll give ye yer supper.' Then
they went off.
'The said Delaney ia a huge quarryman,'
Ralph observed. 'lie represents the phys
ical element of terror here Re
lieve I do the moral. .We shall have warm else
work before morning. He does not like when the door is down, tluit is one comfort.

The keeper came,' looking very much
surprised. He had been in the stables,
and had only just heard of the disturbance.
, - 'Got the rifle8and guns ready, with bul
lets and buckshot,' his master said. 'We
are to bo attacked, it seems.' '
The man's bold face fell blankly. ' :
' .- 'By the powers, yer honor, I haven't the
value of an ounce of pouder iu the house.
1 meant to get some, the morrow morningi
afore ye were up,' ,
Mohun shrugged his shoulders, whist
'Man proposes,' he said. 'Its almost a
pity we found so many cocks in the lower
copse this afternoon. I have fifteen charges
or so in my pistol-case. We must make
that do, loading the rifles light.' Then he
went to a window, whence he could see
down the road; the moon was shining
'1 thought so; they have got their scou(9
posted already. The barbarians know
something of skirmishing after all. Mad
dox, come here.' (The groom was a
strong English boy, very much afraid of
his master, but of nothing else on earth.)
'Saddle Suubam, and go out by the back
gates, keeping well under the shadow of the
trees. When you clear them, ride straight
at the rails at the end of the paddock.
You'll gel over them with a scramble, I
think. Keep fast hold of his head you
musln t fall. Then make the best of your
way to A , and lell Col. Harding, with
my compliments, that I shall be glad if he
will send over a troop as quickly as pos
Bible. They ought to be here in two
hours. And mind, don t spare the horse
going, but bring lnm back easy. You 11
be ot no use here, and 1 won t have him
lamed if I can help it. You'll have to risk
a bullet or two as you go into the road:
but they can't shoot. It's odds against
tlieir killing you. INow go.'
1 he groom pulled his torelock, as if the
most ordinary commission had been given
mm, and vanished
'Connell,' Ralph went on: 'go and saw
the ladders that are in tbe yard half
through. They will hardly try the barred
windows; but it looks more workmanlike
to take all precaution. Then come back
and help Fritz pile chairs and furniture all
up the staircase, about the hall near it.
Line the gallery with mattresses, two deen,
leaving spaces to fire through. Light all
the lamps, and get more candles to fix
about; we shall not 6ce'very clearly after
the smoke ot the nrst dozen shots. When

was failing, she did not wish to show it
Suddenly our host got up and went to
the window. His practiced ear had caught
the tread of the horse which Maddox was
taking out as quietly as possible. We
watched him stealing along under the trees
till their shelter failed hire. Then he put
Sumbeara to speed, and rode boldly at the
rails. A yell went up from the road, and
we saw dark figures- running; then came a
shot just as the horso was rising at ihe
fence. He hit it hard, and the splinters
Hew up -white in the moonlight, but be
was over, we held our breath, while sev
eral flashes told of dropping shots after the
fugitive. They did not stop him, though,
and to our great relief, we heard the wild
rush of the frightened horse subside into
a long, stretching gallop, and the wind
brought back a cheery halloo 'For'rard,
So far, so good,' said Ralph Mohun, as
he sat down again, and went in steadily at
a woodcock. 'Den t hurry yourselves,
gentlemen. We have three-quarters of an
hour yet, they will take that time to mus
ter. Clontarf. some Hock!"
The boy, to who he spoke, held out his
glasa with a pleasant smile. The cominr?
peril had not altered a tint upon his fresh,
beardless cheeks rosy and clear as a
page's in one of Boucher's pictures.
A good coutrast he made with the mis
erable attorney, who had followed us unin
vited (it seemed he only felt safe in our
presence,) and who was crouching in a cor
ner, his lank hair plastered round his con
vulsed, livid face with the sweat of mortal
It struck Mohun, I think. He laid his
hand on Clontarf's shoulder and spoke with
a kind illness of voice and manner most
unusual with h;m
We'll quell the savoge mnnntnliiecr,
As theiriiiichell row the game;
They come as fleet as forest (ucr,
Wu'll drive them back as tame."
Even at that anxious moment I could
not help laughing at the idea of Ralph
quoting poetry of that grim Saul among
I went in.to keep up Kate's spirits. She
bore up gallantly, poor child, and I left
her tolerably calm. She believed in me
as "plunger" to an enormous extent, and
in Mohun still more. When I returned
my companions were in the gallery. This
ran round two sides of the hall, whieh
went up to the roof. The only access to
the upper part of the house was by a stone
staircase of a single flight The kitchen
and offices were on the ground floor, other
wise it was uninhabited.
Ralph had his pistols with him, and his
cavalry sword, long and heavy, but ad
mirably poised, lay within his reach.
I have settled it, he said. You and
Connell are to lake the guns. Smooth
bores are quickest loaded, and will not do
for this short distance. Clontarf, who is
not quite so sure with the trigger, is to
have the post of honor, and guard the
staircase with his sabre. Throw another
bucket of water over it, Connell is it
thoroughly drenched? And draw the
windows up' these did not reach within
ten feet of tbo floor 'we shall bo 6tifled
lie drew me aside, and spoke almost in
a whisper, while his face was very grave
and stern! . . '
You will do me this, justice! whatever
happens. Unless jt hd been forced upon
me, I would not have risked a hair of
your wife's head to save all the attorneys
that are patronized by tHe father of lies.
But, mark me, if it con(es to the worst,
keep abullgt for her. '7,on't lve her to
the mercy of those eavagtt dovilsrI know
them. She had better die ten times over
than fall into their brutal hands. . You
must use your own discretion, though. I
shall not be able to advise you then. Not
a man of them will be iu this gallery till I
am past praying for. Nevertheless, I hope
and believe it will be all right. Don't
trouble yourself to reload; Fritz will do
that for you. I have given mm his orders
Aim very coolly, too; we must not waste
a bullet. I ou can choose your own sword,
there are several behind vou. Ah! I hear
them coming up. Now, men to your posts.
There Was the tramp of many feet, and
the surging of a crowd about and against
the hall door. Then a harsh, loud voice
'Onst for all, will je have him up, or
4ball we take him, and servo the rest of
yez ns bad?,"Ye,ve got women there,
too' : : ;
I will not add the rest of the threat for
very 6hame, Iknow it made me more
wolfish than ever x thought it possible to
feel, for I am a good nalured man in the
mam. Mohun, who is not, bit his mous
tache furiously, and Iris voice shook a little
as he answered:
.'Do you ever Bay a prayer, Pierce De
laney? You need ono now. If you live
to see (o-morrow's sunset, I wish my right
hand may wither at tho wrist.'
A shrill howl pealed out from the assail
ants, and then the stout oak door cracked
and quivered under the strokes of a heavy
battering beam; in a hundred seconds the
hinges yielded, and it came clattering in ;
over it leaped three wild figures, bearing
torches and pikes, but their chief, Delaney,
waf. not one of them.
The left-handed man is yours, Carew;
Connell, take tho middle one,' said Ralph,
as coolly as if he had sprung a pack of
grouse. W hue he spoke his pistol cracked
and the right-hand intruder dropped across
the threshold without a cry or staoger,
shot right through the brain. The keeper
and I wore, nearly as fortunate. Then there
was a pause; then a rnsa from without,
an irregular discharge of musketry, and
the clear part of the hall was crowded with
I can't tell exactly what ensued. I know
they retreated several times, for the bar
ricade was impassible; and while their shots
fell harmlessly on the mattresses, every
one of ours told nothing makes a man
shoot straight like beiny short of powder
but they came on again, each time with
I heard Mohun mutter more than once,
in a dissatisfied tone, 'Why does not that
scoundrel show himself' I can t make
out Delaney. All at once I heard a stifled
cry on my right, and, to my horror, I saw
ClonUrt dragged over the balustrade in
the gripe of a giant, whom I guessed at
once to be the man we had looked for so
long. Under cover of the smoke, he had
swung himself up by the balustrade of
the staircase, and graspinn the poor boy's
collar as he looked out incautiously from
his shelter, dropped back into the hall, car
rying his victim with him.
W ltli a roar of exultation the wild beasts
closed round their prey. Before I had
time to think what could bo done, I heard,
close to my ear, a blasphemy so awful that
it made me start even at that critical mo
ment. It was Ralph's voice, but I hardly
knew it hoarse and guttural, and indis
tinct with passion. Without hesitating an
nstant, he swung himself over the balus
trade, and lighted on his feet in the midst
of the crowd. They were half drunk with
whiskey, and maddened by the smell of
blood; but so great was the terror ot Mo-
mn s name, all recoiled when they saw
him thus, face to face, his sword bare and
his eyes blazing. That momentary panic
saved Clontarf. In a second, Ralph had
thrown him under the arch of a deep door
way, and placed himself between the sense
less body and its assailants. Two or three
shots were fired at him, without taking
effect; it was difficult to take aim in such a
tossing chaos. The one man, Delaney,
sprung out at him with a clubbed musket.
At last! we heard Mohun say, laughing
low and savagely in his beard, as he
stepped one pace forward to meet hie enemy.
blow that looked as if it might have
felled a behemoth was warded dexterously
by the sabre, and, by a quick turn of the
wrist, its edge laid the Rapparee's face
open in a bright eeailet gash, extending
from eyebrow to chin.
Ilia comrades rushed over his body, fu
rious, though somewhat disheartened at
seeing their companion come to grief; but
they had to deal with a blade that had
kept half a dozen Hungarian swordsmen at
bay, and, with point or edge, it met them
everywhere, magically. They were draw
ing back, when Delaney, recovered from
the first effects of h's fearful wound,
crawled forward, gasping out curses that
seemed floating on the torrent of his rush
ing blood, and tried to grasp Mohun by
the knees and drag him down.
Pah ! it was a sight to haunt ones dreams.
(You might have filled my glass, "some of
you, when you saw it was empty.)
Ralph looked down on him, and laughed
again; hia saber whirled round once, and
cleared a wide circle, then trampling down
the wounded man by main force, he drove
the point through his throat, and pinned
him to the floor. I tell you I heard the
steel plainly as it grated on the store.
There w? ;m a'f' co"vulNion of all the
Then came a lull for several moments.
The Irish cowered back to the door like
penned sheep; their ammunition was ex
hausted, and none dared to cross the hid
eous harrier that now was between them
and tho terrible Cuirnss'er.
Don't etir, Connell; stay where you are.
I can finish with these hounds alone.'
As he spoke, he dashed in upon them
with the lowered head and uplifted swdrd.
I don't wonder that they' recoiled; his
wliolo'face and form-were- fewfully tf ftritr
figured every hair in his bushy beard was
bristling with rage, and the incarnate devil
of murder was gleaming redly in his eyes.
Just then there was a wild cry from
without, answered by a shriek from my
wife, who had been quiet till now. ' At
first I thought that some fellows had seated
the windows; but I soon distinguished tho
accents of a great joy. My poor Kate!
She had roughed it in barracks too long
not to know the rattle of the steel scab
bards. All this took about half the lime to act
that it does to tell. I .was hesitating
whether to descend or to atay where my
duty called me nearniy wife. Fritz knelt
behind me, silent and motionless ; he had
gothi8 orders to stay by me to die last ;
but the sturdy keeper rose to his feet.
Faix,' he said, 'I'm but a poor hand at
the swoording, but I must help my master
anyhow;' and he began to climb over the
breastwork. The colouel's quick glance
caught the movement, and his brief, im
perious tones rang over the hubbub of
voices loud and clear.
'Gad! he eaid, you do your work
It is the best wny and tho shortest in
the end,' was the reply; and so the matter
The dragoons left us before daybreak;
their protection was not needed; wo were
as safe as in the Tower of Loudon.. The
next morning, while I 'was bleeping heavily
Ralph was in the saddle, Bcmtring the
country, with what success the next Assizes
could tell.-;,, .j,;, . ,. : : , ;. .... , . ,
I go there again, this winter, for the
wlrfcahooi!n3,i -but T: tU.u'.' lauoli . -think
Kate will accompany me.' ' :i
When the dragoons ennio up at a hard
gallop there was nothing left in the court
yard but the dead and dying. Mohun had
followed the flyers to got a last stroke at
the hindmost. We clambered down into
the hall, and just as we reached the door.
wo saw a miserable, crippled being cling
ing round his knees crying for quarter.
Poor wretch! he might as well have asked
it from a famished jungle tiger. The arm
that had fallen so often that night, and
never in vain, came down once more; the
piteous appeal ended in a death-yell, and,
as we reached him, Mohun was wiping
cooly hia diipping 6aber; it had no more
work to do.
I could not help shuddering as I look
his offered hand, and I saw Connell trem
ble for the first time as he made the sign
of the cross.
The dragoons were returning from the
pursuit; they had only made two prisoners;
the darkness and broken ground prevented
their doing more. Ralph went up to the

'How very good of you to come yourself,
Harding, when I only asked you for a
troop. Come in; you shall have some sup
per in half an hour, and Fritz will tike
care of your men. Throw all that carrion
out,' he went on, ns we entered Ihe hall
strewn with corpses. 'We'll give them a
truce to take up their dead.'
Clontarf came to meet us: he had only
been stunned and bruised by the fall. His
pale face flushed up as he said, 'I shall
never forget that I have to thank you for
'It's not worth mentioning;' Mohun re
plied carelessly. 'I hope you are not much
the worse for the tumble. Gad! it was a
near thing, though! The quarryman 's
arms were a rough necklace.'
At that moment they wero carrying by
the disfigured remains of the dead colossus
His slayer stopped them, and bent over
the hideous face with a grim satisfaction.
My good friend, Delauey,' he muttered
you will own that I have kept my word.
If ever we meet again, I thiuk I shall know
you. Au revoirV and he passed on.
I need not go through the congratula
tory scene, nor describe how Kate blushed,
as they complimented her on her nerve.
Fortunately for her, she had seen nothing
though she had heard all. Just as we
were sitting down to supper, which Frita
prepared with his usual stolid coolness, and
when Kate was about to leave us, for she
needed rest, wo remarked the attorney
hovering about ua with an exultation on
his face, yet more servile and repulsive
than its late abject terror. ".
Mrs. Carew,' said Mohun, 'if you have
quite done with your protege, I think we'll
send him down stairs. Give him some.
thing to eat, Fritz; not with tho soldiers',
though; and let some one take him home
as soon as it's light. If you say one word,
sir, I'll have you turned out notp.'
Mr. Kelly crept out of the room, almost
as frightened as he had baon two hours
The supper was more cheeiful than the
dinner, though there was a certain con
straint on the party, who were not so well
seasoned as their host. He was in usual
spirits; so much so that Clontarf confided
to a cornet, his particular friend, that 'it
was a pity the colonel could not have such
a bear-fight once a fortnight, it put him
into such a charming humor.'
We had nearly finished when, from the
road outside, there came a prolonged ear
piercing wail, that made the window-panes
tremble. 1 have never heard any earthly
sound at once so expressive of utter des
pair, and appealing to heaven or hell for
vengeance. ( , . ' ' ,
We all started, and set down our glasses;
but Mohun finished his slowly, savoring
like a connoisseur the rich Burgundy.
It is the wild Irish women kneeling
over their dead,' he remarked, with per
fect unconcern. 'They'll have "more to
howl for before I have don with them -I
shall go round with the police to-morrow,
and pick up the stragglers. Your men are
too good for such work, Harding. There
are seveial too hard hit to go far, and my
handwriting ia pretty legible.'
The stout soldier to whom he spoke bout
his head in assent, but with rather a queer
' expression on his honest face.

ley. No. 4 Wood street, n cookinir stove
which, for real practical utility, stands
without a rivnl in the country. It is
knows as tho "Gas and Smoke Burning
Cooking Stove," and is produced by the
application of "Gas and smoke burning
patent to Bradley's justly celebrated
"Tiopio" and "Atna" Stoves, with the
excellency of which tliore are few of our
readers unacquainted. Mr. Bradley has
sole control of tho improvement, and has
it protected by two patents, the one bear
ing date the 13th of April, and the other
June 1st, 1858. Iu appearance the "Gas
and Smoke Burning Cooking Stove" differs
but l'utte from an ordinary stove, yet its
internal ai rangements are such that it gives
a much greater .amount of heat at far less
expense than the common stove, and is
infinitely preferable to it for cooking pur
poses. Tbe manner in which this desid
eratum is effected is very simple. Jets of
heated air are introduced over the fire
through a perforated hollow top centre
piece, and there, in mingling with the
gases, produce a combustion, which, pass-j
mg round the nues ot tho stove, throw a
more intense and uniform heat into the
oven than can be produced by any non-gas
burning stove now before the public. The
saving in fuel constituent on the burning
of the gas is about fifty per cent., while
the required heat is produced, and the total
absence of the soot aud gases, the pre
sence of which, in ordinary stoves, renders
many of them so objectionable for cooking
purposes, are recommendations in favor of
Mr. Bradley's stove that should not aud
will not be lightly overlooked.
And that they are not overlooked is evi
dent from the fact that thero now is a de
mand for them that is absolutely astonish
ing. From every district, east or west,
where they have been tried, orders for
them come pourning in, and yet their
worth is scarcoly half known and the. de
mand but in its infancy. This is a tribute
to Sir. Bradley's genius, and tho peculiar
excellence of his stove, of which he may
well feel proud, jTeL,it is nothing more than
the gentleman merits, and is but a just
tribute to his inventive abilities. Before
the "Gas and Smoke Burning Stove" was
ever heard of, his "Etna." "Tropic," and
numerous other stoves had acquired a re
putation which insured for them a ready
sale everywhere. They were to be found
in almostevery house, and in every instance
they gave tho most unqualified satisfaction.
Indeed there appears to be no end to his
improvements. He introduced a stove to
the public, which by common consent,
and with the test of experience to guide
us in making up our opinion, is pronouueed
perfect; yet a few months later his ready
genius discovers some point in which it
may be improved, and the stove which
every one thought perfect Derorc and wiucn
gave unalloyed satisfaction wherever it was
used, is made better.
One peculiarity about Mr. Bradley's
stoves it might be well to name. They
are constructed so that a draught of cold
air circulates behind all the fire backs.
This renders them infinitely more durable
than those made without the Improvement,
and consequently greatly enhances their
real value. A few years since he had a
patent granted him for a fire back for con
suming ga9 and smoke, by passing air be
tween the fire back and oven thiough
6mall holes on the top o( the plate. This
answered tolerably well, but not so well
as miirht be expected, because the holes
sometimes became clogged with dust, and
the cooks generally had the fire higher
than the plate, which destroyed altogether
the intended utility of the invention. In
the "gas and smoke burning stove," how
ever, this impediment to success has been
completely conquered, and no matter how
large the fire, its usefulness cannot be im
paired.'nor can it by any means fail to ex
hibit those advantages in a practical way
claimed for it by its proprietor. Again
we recommend every person in want of a
stove to call at Sir. Bradley's and exam
ine his new improvement. It is far more
economical than the common stove, does
itg work infinitely better, aud is emphati
cally a 6tove for the people. Evening

Value of Sheep to tlte Farmer.
Sheep are valuable to the farmer, not
only from the product of wool and mutton,
but from the tendency which their keep
ing has to improve and enrich his land tor
all agricultural purposes. They do this.
1. By the consumption of food refused
by other animals, in summer; turning
waste vegetation to use, and giving rough
and bushy pastures a smoother appear
ance, and in time eradiating wilds plants,
so that good grasses and white clover may
take their place. Iu this respect sheep are
ofespecial value to pastures on soils too
steep or to3 stony for the plow. In winter
the courser parts ot the bay, refused by
horses and eo W are readily eaten by sheep,
while oilier 6tock will generally eat mor,t
of that left by these animals.
For those reasons, among others, no
grazing farm should Pe without a email
flock of sheep; for it has been found that
as many cattle and horses can be kept with
as without them, and without injury totl.e
farm for other purposes. A small flock,
we said, perhaps half a dozen to each
horse and cow, would be a proper propor
tion. A variety of circumstances would
influence this point, such as the character
of the pasturage, and the proportion of tho
same fitted and desirable for tillage.
2. Sheep enrich land by the production
of large quantities of excellent manure. A
fanner of long experience in sheep hus
bandry thought there was no manure 6o
fertilizing as that of sheep and of which
there is no doubt that none dropped by
any animal upon the land suffered bo little
waste from exposure. A German agri
cultural writer has calculated .that tie
droppings from ono thousand sheep, dur
a single night, would manure an acre
sufficiently for any crop.
By using a portable fence, and moving
the same from time, to Ume, a farmer
might manure a distant field with sheep,
at a less expense than that of carting and
spreading barn manure. Country Gentleman.

is Regarded in New York. The New
York "Independent" of the 18th ult., -pays
this well-raeritod compliment to our
great and growing State.
Probably no western State has stood
firmer during the late financial storm
than Ohio. Her merchants generally
have paid their maturing obligations with
almost their usual promptness. They,
have doue it without grumbling or whining .
Neither the rate of exchange which was
high at one time, nor the general scarcity
of money all' over tho country, which was
caught up greedily as ar. excuse in other
sections for delay, nor any other mere ex
cuse, have been offered as a substitue
for debt-paying. The result of this
promptness and honorable policy has been
to raise the credit of the merchants of that
State to a point equal to that of any other
State in the Union. New England has
heretofore stood in the front rank in regard -:
to credit. Vermont probably would re
ceive the verdict of an impartial juiy of
New York merchants as the moat prompt
of the eastern States. The trade of that
State is not large, but it is valuable for its
safely. Ohio now fairly stands side by
side with her sober sister, Vermont a
position which she will doubtless hold.
The exact position of the other romantic
sisters of our Federal Union, we will not
now attempt to discuss. "
