have elapsed, and I have never yet

give the the outlines of the narrative.
Major Rupert Stanley, a bold
dragoon' in the service of his majesty
George III, found himself, one
dark and blustering night in autumn,
riding towards London on the old
York road. le had supped with a
friend, who lived at a village sorne
distance off the road, and lie was un
familiar with the country. Though
not raining, the air was damp, and
the heavy, surcharged clouds threat
ened every moment to pour down
their contents. But the inajor, though
a young mai, was an old campaigner,
and with a warm cloak wrapped a
bout him, and a good horse un
der him, would have cared very lit
tle for storm and darkness, had lie
felt sure of a good bed for hinself,
and comfortable quarters for his
horse when he had ridden far enough
for the strength of his faithful ani
mal. A good horseman cares as
much for the comfort of his steed as
for his own case. To add to the
disconforf of the eveninig, there was
some chance of meeting highwaymen;
but Major Stanley felt no uneasiness
on that score, ns just before leaving
his friend's house, lie had examined
his bolster-ptols, and freshly primed

of the appearance of the wished for

give unmistakeable evidence of dis.

recovering himself with difficulty.
At last, a dim light suddenly appear
ed at a turn of the road. The horse
pritked up his cars, and trotted
forward with spirit, soon halting be

Touching his steed with the spur,
the major rode off, feeling an cx
hiilaration of spirit whuich soon comn
municatedl itself to the horse. A
sharp trot of a few minutes brought
him to a large mansioni, which stood
unfenced, like a huge caravanseryv,

'I cannot promise you a bed, sir,'
said the host, 'for I have but one
spare bed in the house.'
'And that?'-said the major.
'Happens to be in a room that
does not enjoy a very pleasait repu.

my house is haunted; and that is the
only -em, unfortunately, that I can

The host shook his head gravely.
'I never knew a man,' lie said,

his pistols from the holster-pipes.
'With these friends of mine,' he said,
'I fear neither ghost nor demon.'

the door continued to open and the ta
ble to slide back. At last there glidec
into the room a tall; graceful figure,
robed in white. At tho first glance,
the blood curled in the major's veins; at
the second, he recognized the daughter
of his host. Her eyes were wide open,
and sho advanced Wvith an assured
step, but it was viey evident she
was asleep. Here was the mystery of
the Greei-Chnnber solved at once. 'he
young girl walked to the fire-place and
seated herself in the armchair from
which the soldier had just risen. His
first impulse was to vacate the room,
and go directly and alarm the colonel.
But, in the first place he knew not
what apartment, his host occupied, and
in the second curiosity prompted him
to watch the denouement of this sin
gular scene. J ulia raised her left hand,
and gazing on a begutiful ring that
adorned one of' her .white and taper
fingers, pressed it repeatedly to her
lips. She then sank into an attitude of
repose, her arms drooping listlessly
by her sides.
The major appri~ched her, and
stole the ring from lir finger. His
action disturbed but did not awaken
her. She seemed .b miss the ring,
however, and, afteq groping hope
lessly for it, rose ibd glided thro'
the doorway as sileu'ntly as she had
entered. She had no sooner retired,
than the major rieplaced the table,
und drawing a he y clothes press
against it, effectuallf'guarded himself
against a second in'rusion.
This done, lie threw himself upon
the bed, and slept abundly till a late
hour oT the morning. When lie
awoke. lie sprang a tLof the bed, and
ran to the window.:. Every trace of
the storm had pass away, and an
unclouded sun way shining on the
radiaut landscape.-. fter performing
the duties of his to lot, he was sum
inoned to breaklfas-where he met
the.colonel and his nfilghter.
'Well, pajor.-ad how did you

Then, thank Heaven, the spell is
broken at last,' said the colonel, 'and
the White Phanton has ceased to
haunt the Green Chamber.'
'By no means,' said the major,
smiling, 'the White Phantom paid mae
a visit last night, and left -lme a token
of the honor.'
'A token!' exclaimed the father
and daughter, in a breath.
'Yes. my friend, and here it is.'
And the major handed the ring to
tie old gentleman.
'What's the meaning of this Julia?'
exclaimed the colonel. 'The ring I
gave you last week !'
Julia uttered a faint cry and turn
ed deadly pale.
i'Tie mystery is easily explained,'
said the' major. 'Tle' young lady
is a sleep-waker. She caine hito my'
room before I had rctir~d, utterlv
inIcoisciolis of her actions. 1 took
the ring fromu her hand that I migh t
he ab!e to convince you and her of
the reality of what I had witnessed.'
The ma jor's business wa3 not press
ing, andli he readily yielded to the
colonel's urgen't request to hpass a few
days with him. Their mutual liking
incre-ased upon bctter acquaintance,
and ini a few weeks the White Phan
tonm's ring, inscribed with the namens
of Runpert Stanley and Julia Rogem s,
served as the sacred symbol of their
union for life.

Our Militia System.
There is no concealing the fact
that our present millitia system is
becoming very unpopular; and howev
er strong our inclinations for promo
tion in the military, our desires must
yield to the convictions of reason,
and we are forced to confess that we
think it deservedly unpopular.
Yet there are many who would
advocate militia mustering, though
it would accomplish nothing; not be
cause they believed any benefit would
result therefrom, but because of their
strong hope of winning a military ti
tle, and an ni-dent wish to
'Sink their 1hnanks knee deep in leather,
And shelter their craniums under caps with a
Now we do not address our re
marks to this alass of persons whose
reasons is somewhat obscured by
their military aspirations-by their
ambition to put on the dignity, wear
the laurels and enjoy the honor of
being a millitia Captain or Major; be
cause they would fall like unmeaning
words upon their brains. But we
dddress ourselves to the sensible and
reflecting part of the community who
areouot. aspirants for. militia office,
but are,content to be called -by the
out the title of i
The propositions that 'wo take are
1st. That all the mustering done
by oufmilitia does not effect any
thing in the way of preparing them
for the duties of war.
2nd. That it only serves to keep
a kind of millitia organization, which
could be done with one half the la
bor and expense now employed.
3rd. That, therefore, we should
make some alteration or revision of
As to the truth of the proposition;
we leave that to the decision of every
honest millitia man, and would as:
him, in the name of honesty, although
he may have performed millitia duty
for the last twenty years, whether
he could shoulder arms, about face,
or perform the most simple evolution
with that skill and precision that
would be required of him if he were
mustered into actual service?
We presumno that there are none
so vain as to conceive that, by our
millitia system, they are rendered
capable, when called upon, of be
comning better and more cfficieht sol
diers; thter.eforeo we shall say nothing
further underi this head.
Knowing, by experience andl ob
seration, that our present system
fails to dr-ill and instruct our mill itia,
this fact forces the conclusion of our
second proposition, that it only keeps
up an organization.
Now if you conclude that -the
keeping upl of the organisation, arid
p~atr-ol duties, are the only benefits
arising from our syetem, indeed we
cannot see how you could conclude
otherwise; then if we find out a bet
ter and cheaper way of doing this,
there can be no reason why we sh~ould
not adopt it.
Suppose you make a clean Sweep
and abolish militia mustering alto
gether, (though we do not advocate
suchm a total extinction of the milita
ry,) cotild you not still keep the or
gantization by paosing a law that the
Magistrates in-each beat should keep
a list for the cenrolmnent of the mili
tia-putting a fine ubon any one
who should fail or neglect to enrol
The cost of' this would be compar
atively nothing when compared with
the heavy tax that we pay under our
But, says one, how can you make
it appear that we pay a military tax?
Well, hero is to the proof of it: Ev
cry one must admit' that ivealth 'is
originally acquired 'by laboi- and iik
dustry, and thatjlabor ig lifleyer or
meatis by s ih alh 'he
ted; then, -if the State takes awafy
the means by which-our money is ob
tained, by taxing our labor, she does
the same thing as to take away our
wealth bytaxing our purse. What
would be the difference to you if the
State were to pass a. law requiring
you to work exclusively for the pub
lic, or a law requiring all the pro
ceeds of your labor as a public tax ?
There could be no difference. Then
you see to tax a man's labor, is to
tax his purse.
Now let us calculate what amotnt
of military tax the people of this Dis
trict pay-and not having the mili
tia rolls before us, our calculations
must be based upon supposition.
We may reasonably suppose that
there are sixteen hundred men liable
to do millitia duty. Now, rating ev.
cry man's labor and attention on his
farm to be worth, on an average, one
dollar per day; then one day would
be sixteen hundred dollars, and six
times that amount, would be over
nine thousand dollars, nearly equal
to one half of the whole tax paid by
It seems very clear to me, that
with even one fourth of this amount,
judiciously expended, we could do
more towardstbuilding up the milita
-y, and rendering our soldiers .effi
cient, than is now done with the
The grand argument in favor of
our militia system is, that it keeps
up the patrol duties; but it would be
sheer nonsense to say that we could
not accomplish this end by other and
different ways. We would answer
the argument by saying that there is
generally a Magistrate.in each beat,
and there could be no inconvenience
in giving them the management of
the patrol business, even if-we had to
give them a small ,omponsption for
-their trouble.. It would-ceiainly-bo
.cheaper 1and better to do thieathin

ting out patrol warrants, and of go
ing through the mock semblance of
Another argument is, that te
should sustain the present system, in
order that when. the brazen notes of
the war trumpet shall be sounded in
our cars, our militia men could be
drafted, dragged and compelled to
march to the defence of their country.
Such an argument is a slabder upon
the cournge and patriotism of our cit.
izens. It is just the same as to say
that they would not fight for their
country without being compelled by
law. But such is not the fact; when
our country is invaded -her rights
endangered-they need no compul
sory laws to compell them to march
to her rescue. No-tLe spirit that
animated our grandsires to fight for
the cause of freedom, is not so de
generate in the bosoms of their child
ren as that they should need the au
thority of law to force them to main
tain its blesbings.
Let but our country's flag be hois
ted in defence of our liberty, and
thousands of willing soldiers will
flock from all quarters to her Stan
dard. Let but a hostile enemy plant
his foot upon our seashore, and you
will find hardly volunteers sufficient
to fall upon them; like hungry wvolves
upon a sheep-fold, and scatter them
to the four winds.
We come now to what we said in
out' third proposition, viz: that our
system should be revised. Here lies
the difficulty. Every one sees the
necessity of a change, but it is not
anm easy task to frame a new plan to
supercede the old. We are inclined
t~o think that the late plan adopted
by Virginia1 of appropriating funds
to dcehay the expenses of volunteer
companies, and doing away with mil.
litia drills altogether, is as good as
any we could offer. But as this plan
would kill off the necessity of so many
officers, and some of the military as
pirants might be left in the back
ground, we propose, for the acco
modation of all that are ambitious
that line, that the Legislature
