Devoted to his own pnrsnita, birth. deth, and mnrriagva. were to him thing of nonuht, and he pai.I no heed to the contant tliscnaions which were held in the village on the extraor .Unary cae of old Elneer (irindstone. who had lieen thonght extremely rich, but in who, honse nttt a farthing hal tteen found after hia decease, to the great disappointment of his creditora. Soon, however, tlcrre tV4 au.-h a yio lent dash of rain against the window, rh t even Tom wast compelled to ktart. when he aaw the door oien. and a stran eer enter, completely ttitifflf l in a cloak. The new comer stood before the fire, a if to dry hinfelf, and seemed to be of the name tacitnrn disposition as Tom. fo he made no annwer to the diff-Tnt qnestions that were addressed to him. nor did he even condescend lo look at the speakers. The shower having ceased and the moon ahininjr brightly through the window, the stranirer walked out again, wilhont any sirn of leave-taking. "That be a qneer chap." said the os tler. "I'll rnn and see where he's roing" and he followed the stranger, who had awakened a curiosity in every oneex.-ept Tom.

"Ave snre I do," said the ostler. "And which way did he go ?" " Whv toward the chnrchyard. snre." Tom w aited for no more, but dashing down his pipe, he rnshed out of the room, and tore along the road to the chnrch vard. When he had got there, he aaw the stranger standing by the tomb of old Elwnezr Grindstone. The moon was Inning full down, leaving nothing but a bare skeleton before him. "Thank my stars! exclaimed Tom, I have seen a hkeleton at last." "Yonne man." aaid the skeleton in a holW .voice, while it hideously moved its jaws. "Attend!" "How berntiful." cried Tom. enrap tnred.

' ' BATTLE OF HIW OEIEAIS. ; bt a BamaH omctau- A British Officer, who waa at the bat tle of New Orieana, mentions aa. inci dent of thrilling straageoeaa, ; and very descriptive of the Western bnntera, many of whom marched to the deftrni of New Orieana aa ytwnnfeera in the Trry'ttd-r the renowned Tjeneral Jackaon : We mareheiL, said the officer, in a lid column of twelve thonsand men in b di rect line npon the American defences. I belonged to the atalT, and aa we. advan ced, watched through onr glaaa the po sition of onr enemy with that intensity an officer only fuels when marching into the jawa of death, with the assarance that while he thus offered himself as a sac rifice to the cause of his country, every anion, he it succesful or otherwise, will be judged with most heartless scru'iny. ' It waa a atrange sight, that long range of rmton hales a new material for. breast work with their crowd of hnman ,einga behind ; their heads only visible above the line of defeni'e. " We could distinct ly see their long rifles lying over the bales, and the entire battery of Gen. Coffee di rectly in front, with its great month gap ing towards us, and the position of (Jen. Jackson with his staff around him. Cat what attracted onr attention most was the figure of a tall man standing on the breastworks, dressed in linsey woolsey. with buckskin legging, anil a broad rim felt hat. that fell around hia face, almost coni-ealim; his feat n res. He wa standing in one of those pictnresque and graceful attituiiea peculiar to those natural men dwellers in the forest. The body rested, on the left leg, and swayed with a enrved line npward ; the right arm was extended, the hand graping the rifle near the muzzle, the bntt of which rente.! near the t3 of the right foot, while with his hand ho rained the rim of his hat from his eyes, and seemeed gaz ing beneath intensely npon our advanc ing column. The cannon of Gen Coffee had opened npon n-t, aud tore through unr rank with dreadful slaughter; but we continued to advance, nnwavering an I cool, aa if nothing threateend onr pro-' gre. The roar of cannon seemed to have no effect npon the figure standing npon the cotton hales, lint he seeme-t nxei an I motionless aa a statue. At lat he mov e I. threw hack the ht rim over the crown with hia left hand ; raised the rifle to his shoulder, and took aim at onr group. Our eyes were riveted npon him. At whom had he leveled his piece? Bnt the d stance was so great that we looked at e ich other aud smiled. We saw the rifle fl th, and my right hand companion, aa noble a looking fellow a ever rode at the head of a regiment, fell from hia saddle. The hunter panned a few momenta withont moving hia rifle from his jdionlder. then reloaded and resumed hi former attitude. Throwing the bat rim over hi eye, and again holding it np with the left hand, he fixed hi piercing gise npon na as if hunting ont another victim. Once more that hat rim waa thrown hark and the gun raied to the ahonMer. This time we did not smile, hut east short glances at each other to see which of n mnst die ; and when tire rifle again flashed another of ns dropped to the esrth. There ws something awful in marching on to cer tain death. Gen. Coffee's bsttry, and thousands of mnket balla played upon onr ranks. We cared not ' for them : there was a chanee of eacaping nncthel. Most of na hail walk! npon batferries a hundred timea more destructive without qnailing. W to know that rifle was leveled toward n. and a the bnllet sprang from it bar rel, one of n mnst surely fall! to see the gleaming gun flash as the iron came down, and see it rest motionless, as if poised np on a rock, and knoo when 'the hammer truck and the sparks lew to the full primed pan. that tha messenger of 1eth drovennerringly to its, goal to know thi ail l still march. on was awfnl ! . I could see within bnt the tall figure standing on the breatwork. He seemed to grow phantom like ;' taller and taller.- anm'naowthrongh the smose tne super atrat appearance of some giant aptrit.

We 1ot the battle, and to my mind the Kentnckv rifleman eontrihoted mnrm to onr defeat than anything else, for while h remained to onr sight onr attention wa drawn from onr dnttr ; and when, at last are became raahnmded ia the smoke, : the work waa complete mm wer in n'ter, confaion. and on able, in the extremity to restore order sufficient; ly to make any anccessfuT attack.

Should it happen, er bare possibility, that the package "fails to draw a three nnmher prize," yon may not send the second package, but retain it in payment of the first. Yon say yon have frequently sent me yonr circulars, and have often thought it strange that yon had not heard from m I am sorry that my reminen ha canned von any nneaine of mind, and my ap ology is that I did not know tha firm lars were from a partial friend and a.

The Washington Constitution. New York Herald, and after them a host of other journals, are charging npon the Republicans in Congress the endorse ment of an incendiary book. This book i entitled "The Impending crisi of the South, and how to meet it, by Tliaton Rowan Helper, of North Carolina." The facta are. that the book in question' was prepared some two years sini by a cit izen of the Sonth. of strong acti slavery convictions, and .embodied many vain aMe fact, and attistices relating to the institution; that it also contained trong abolition sentiments, aud argnmetits tending to show the necessity of ex ter minating slavery, by peaceful or forcible means. A selection from this votriuie, embodying its mssses of fact and In formation, an I leaving out its nltra Lsms, was prepared for general circulation through the conntry. A fund was rais ed by voluntary subscription, for the publicly avowed object of pntting the facts before the people, and getting the public mind interested and informed on the question of tho impolicy and injustice of slavery. No part of the book thus distributed contained anything which pointed toward forcible abolition, or the least interference with slavery where it exists nnder State laws. . .The condensed edition of Helper's book it was which was endorsed by sixty-eight members of Congress, as a .vork powerfully fitted to exert a good influence, ami to restrain the spread of slavery. , This book thus carefully guar ded in its positions, and designed to uis tribhte information relative to the mis chievons effects of slsvery npon ell con cerned, waa charged by these scrnpo loua partizan journals to have been the same work as the original one, from which it wss made np. and which con tained sentiments which no merely anti slavery man would be willing to endorse. This dishonest attempt to hold men ro sponsilde for a policy they never held or sanctioned, and which has been brought np in Congress within tho past three day, as a fact proved against tha lead ing member of that body, is thus expos ed by tho ca-eftil and reliable correspon dent of the Philadelphia North Ameri can one of the most judicious and influ ential journal in tho country. The Administration organs and ia strnments hare used the pretended extracts from Helper book on slavery, to excite prejudice ag iint Mr. Sherrnin and othera. That facts have been grossly perverted in regard to this matter, and should be un derstood hy the public. It is not true that the Republican members of Con gress endorsed Helper's "Impending crisis of the Sonth." or a single word of tha extract published by the New York Herald. A compendium frora that hook, with the tables show ing the com parative result of free and alave labor, and ' discussion of the two theories, was nbmitted to the Hon. F. P. Blair, of Missouri a slaveholder for revision. None of the pretended extra?ta which have gained ao much currency and noto riety, appear in the compendium, which ia a book of two hnudred pagea. whila the original work contained fonr hundred pages. They, and mnch tuote similar matter, were expurgated purposely, and hecan.e they were disapproved. Tha publishers, desiring to sell their hook, got np a recommendation in New York of respectable names, and thn brought it here for the sanction of members cf Con gress. Thia paper was handed aroond he Honse, and signed jut as all such doenmeafs are. with very little knowledge of the:r contejts. This is the whola ntory. and there wss no secret about it, for the publishers issned a eircnlar. with all the names now Conrished a year aad al half ac l. It is obvious from- this statement that moral, if not legal, forgery has b.'n committed in attaching tha names of members to a publication which they never endorsed. CTactasvafJ MlSTAXClT IorSTITT.
