GRANDMOTHER'S STORY OF BUNKER HILL
AS SHE SAW BY FROM THE DELTRY.
"Tis like stirring living embers, when, at
eighty, one remembers
JlT1 the achings and the quaking of "the
times that tried men's souls;"
"When I talk of Whig and Tory, when I
tell tho Rebel story,
To you the words are ashes, but to me
they're burning coals.
I had heard the muskets' rattle of the
April running battle;
Xiord Percy's hunted soldiers, I can see
their red coats still;
Tint a tlerully chill comes o'er me, cs the
day looms up before me,
When a thousand men lay bleeding on
the shines of Buukcr Hill.
'Twas a peaceful Summer's morning,
when the first thing gave us warning
Was the booming of the cannon from
the river and the shore:
Child,"says grandma, "whats the mat-
ter, what is ail this noise and clatter?
Have those scalping Indian devils come
to murder ns once morei'"
Toot old soul! my sides were shaking in
the midRt of all my quaking,
S'o hear her tidk of Indians when the
guns began to roar;
She had seen the burning village, nnd
the slaughter and the pillage,
When the Mohawks killed her father
with their bullets through his door.
Then I said, "Xow, dear old granny,
dont you fret and worry any,
Tor I'll soon come back and tell you
whether it is work or play;
There can't be mischief in it, so I won't
be gone a minute''
For a minute then I started. I was gonel
the live-long day.
No time for bodice-lacing or for looking
Down my hair went as I hurried, turn
bliug half-way to my heels;
God forbid you ever knowing, when
there's blood around you flowing,
How tiie lonely, helpless daughter of
quiet household feels!
In the street I heard a trumping; and
knaw it was a stumping
Of the Corporal, our old neighbor, on
that wooden leg he wore,
With a knot of women round him
was lucky I had found him,
So I followed with the others, and the
Corporal inarched before.
They were making for the steeple, the
old soldier and his people:
The pigeons circled ronnd ns as
climbed the creaking stairs.
Jnsi across uie narrow nver oh, so
close it made me shiverl
Stood a fortress on the hill-top that but
yesterday was bare.
Not slow our eye to find it; well we
knew who stood behind it,
Though the earth-works hid them from
ns, and the stubborn walls were
Here were sister, wife, and mother, look
ing wild up on each other.
And their lips were white with terror,
as they said the hocb has come!
The morning slowly wasted, not a mor
sel had we tasted,
And our heads were almost splitting
with the cannons deafening thrill,
When a figure tall and stately round the
rampart strode sedately;
It was Prescott, one since told me; he
commanded on the hill.
Every woman's heart grew bigger when
they saw his manly figure,
tTith the banyan buckled ronnd it,stand
ing np so straight and tall;
like a gentleman of leisure who is
strolling out for pleasure.
Through the storm of shell and cannon
shot he walked around the wall.
At eleven the streets were swarming, for
the red-coats' ranks were forming;
At noon in marching order they were
moving to the piers;
How the bayonets gleamed and glistened
as we looked far down and listened
To the trampling and the drum beat
the belted grenadiers.
At length the men have started, with a
cheer (it seemed faint-hearted),
In their scarlet regimentals, their knap
sacks on their backs,
juui iae reuuenuigs, rippling water, as
after a sea-fight's slaughter,
Round the barget gliding onward blush
ed like blood along their tracks.
So they crossed to the other border, and
again they formed in order;
And the boat came back for soldiers,
came for soldiers, soldiers still.
The time seemed everlasting to ug wo
men faint and fasting
At last they moved, marching, marching
proudly np the hilL
We can Bee the bright steel glancing all
along the lines advancing
Now the front rank fires a volley they
have thrown away their shot;
Tot behind their earthworks lying, all
the balls above them flying,
Our people need not hurry ; so they wait
and answer not.
Then the Corporal, our old cripple (he
wcu! J swear sometimes and tipple)
He Lad heard the bullets whittle (in the
old French wtr) before
OJ'b ov.t in words of jeering, just fcs if

But ye'll waste a ton tf puwdt f before a

You may bang the dirt and welcome,
they're as safe as Paul Malcolm
Ten foot beneath the gravest ne that
you 11 splintered with your balls!"
In the hush of expectation, in the awe
Of the tread approaching momenta, we
are well nigh breathless all;
Though the rotten bars are falling on
the rickety belfry railing,
We were crowding up ngaiuBt them like
the waves against a wall,
Just glimpse (the ftir the clearer) they
are nearer nearer nearer,
When a flash a airline smork-wreath
then a crash the steeple shakes
The deadly truce is ended; the tempest's
shroud is rended;
Like a morning mist it gathers, like
thuudur cloud it breaks!
Oh the sight our eyes discovered as the
blue-black smoke blows over!
Tho red-cont stretched in winrows ns a
mower rakes his liny;
Here a scarlet henp is lying, there a

Then he cried, '.-The troops are routed! I
They are beat it can't be doubted

Ah! the grim old soldiers smile
"it'll us, tell us why you look so'r" (we
could hardly speak, wo shook so)
"Are they beaten? Are they beaten? Abe
they beaten?" "Wait awhile."
Oh the trembling and the terror? for too
soon we saw our error;
They are baffled, not defeated; we have
driven them back in vain ;
And tho columns they were scattered,
round the colors that were tattered,
Toward the sullen silent fortress turn
their belted breasts again.
at once, as we were gazing, lo the
roofs of Charlestown blazing! .
They have fired the harmless village, in
an hour it will be down!

Have our soldiers got faint-hearted, and

Pigot's running heroes and the
frightened braves of Howe;
we shout, "At last they're done
for, it's their barges they have run

battle's over now!"
we looked, poor timid creatures, on
the rough old soldier's features,
lips afraid to question, but he knew
what we would ask;

then he banded me his flask, ,

IN THE JAWS OF DEATH.
A Story of a Coolie Revolt.
The clipper ship Transit was lying in j
waiting for a cargo of
coolies, the first installment of which
was alongside. They were destined for
the island of Cuba, and were to be land
ed at Havana.
Considerable alterations had been
made for the accommodation of the na
tives, and at the same time additional
security added for the safety of the offi-1
cers and crew. The fore and main
hatches had been fitted with heavy iron
gratings, securely bolted to the comb-

iron cage had been constructed, fitted
with a door and secured with bolts,
The ship carried three mates, a boat
swain, and sixteen men, which, with
captain, steward and cook, completed
Transit s complement
The chief mate, John Maynard, was a
handsome young son of the ocean, stad
wart and brave. The second mate, Mr.
Halpin, was a good, efficient officer,
while the third officer was yet young
boy, scarcely twenty. j
Half a dozun sailors, armed with cut
lasses ground sharp as razors, buckled
around their waists, and with loaded
muskets, stood on either side of the
gangway as the coolies filed over the

could not well select one from the
crew, there was none too many on deck
the duties were far from Light, so a
Chinaman, Assam by name, was duly
installed in the cabin.
His dark eyes glittered with strong
inward emotion as he stood humbly, ev
cnngingly before the captain, listen
to his directions; but he made no
other demonstration; the captain took
notice of it, and he was suffered to
depart without further delay.
Stowed away in the run of the ship
abaft the cabin, were some twenty thous
and dollars, a portion of the ship's earn
ings, safely packed in kegs., The fact

cers from the crew, and as for the coolies

On the morning of the third day Cap
tain Sylvester crawled into the run of
vessel, leaving the door open behind
his object being to look after the
stowage of the specie. Without a
moment's warning he came upon the
Chinese steward, who was too intent up
what he had before him to notice the
approach of his master. , .
The Chinaman had by some means
managed to break open a keg containing
precious metal, and the glittering
contents lay exposed to the sparkling
avaricious gaze of the wily nctive.
For a moment Sylvester was so taken
surprise, Bo overcome by a nameless
terror as to be incapable of motion, and
drops of perspiration rolled down
Recovering he roared out in a voice of
thunder, "You infernal scoundrel, what
you doing here?" And scrambling
forward the irate captain attempted to
grapple with Lis dangerous foe. ' But
steward, quick, as a flash of light
ning, evaded the captain's blow, dealt
one an he glided' by, and while Syl
vester was floundering among the boxes

door, darted out of the cabin and

No one took particular Dotioe of the

Amid the din and uproar Maynard
heard the voico of Captain Sylvester
calling upon him to jump tlirough the

The mate required no second bidding.
With a shout to second mate to follow,

and another followed in quick succession,

With a yell of baffled rage the coolies
renewed the assault; but this time their
efforts were directed against the doors o

to the shower of blows; and in a few
moments were reduced to splinters.
But Captain Sylvester had not been idle

dampened by the severe check they had
sustained, and retiring from the scene of
conflict, they held a hurried consul
tationa respite that was made the most
by Maynard and his companion in re
pairing and strengthening the barricade
which had suffered somewhat from the
frantic efforts of the mob.
An ominous silence had fallen upon
ship, which boded no good to the
resolute men who held possession
the cabin. With anxious hearts and
fingers pressing the triggers of their fire
they stood straining both ears and
to discover what might be going on
among their enemies,
Suddenly a simultaneous1 yell burst
the hoarse throats of the gang, fol
