on his mind Wy the heavy rams oi thu;
and the preceding day) that a flock,
consisting of about 2UO sheep, his
property, which were feeding in a
turuij# field on the Bank of the Tyne,
near to Corbridge, Northumberland,
had been swept away by the overflow
ing of tliat river. The dream had
»u,:h an' effect upon him that he was
induced to call upon a young man, his
apprentice, and despatch him to the
place in question at an early hour on
Monday morning, with instructions to
remove.(the sheep immediately on to a
higher ground, on no account to be
dissuaded from so doing. The young
m in, after a ride of about 23 miles
reached the field, and proceeded to
ex'-ute the orders given him. when the
farmer "on whose land the sheep had
Veen placed remonstrated with him
and ridiculed the idea of removing
Iht sin, assuring him that they were
perfectly safe. The apprentice, how
ever, was firm in the performance ot
4)is duty, and before he had succeeded
|n removing the wh *le of the sheep,
the flood broke down an embankment
and covered the field to a considera
ble depth, the rapid current carrying
off five of the flock, which were borne
along for some distance, but were
finally secured in consequence of their
Peaces being entangled in the hedges.

A Fortunate Rescue.—We under
stand that a German lad, about tenor
eleven years of age, broke th ough
the ice about midway in Jones Falls,
-at the foot of Horse market space,
yesterday afternoon, between four
and Jive o'clock, and in ist have
Srowned, but for the noble exertions
of Lieut. Adams, of the United
States Navy, who happened very op
portunely to be passing at the time.
Several efforts had been made by the
s iectators to rescue the youth from
his perilous situation, all of which had
failed. At this critical moment
!Lieut. A. reached the scene of dan
ger, and with the characteristic gen
erosity of the American ofljee.is which
never calculates on danger when good
can be done to a fellow creature, im
mediately broke the ice to the little
eufferer, whom he gained and brought
to the shore, to the gratification 01
hundreds who thronged the margin of
the Falls on either side, and who but
a moment before were expecting
every instant to see him sink to rise
no more. Such ah act of disinterest
edness deserves all praise.

Extraordinary Imposter.—The Wor
cester Spy states that a a person was
C ommitted to the House of Correc
tion in that town, on the 7th inst, as a
common vagabon;', who, for adroit
ness in roguery and imposture, rare
ly has had a parallel. In Oxford, he
appe»red and passed himself off as the
fiephew of a widow woman in that
place, the son of a sister in a remote
section of the country. He so re
lated many circumstances, corre
sponding with the true history of the
family, as to remove all doubts of
his being the person he profi ssed to
be. He represented himself as pos
sessed of great riches, and after se
curing the confidence of the family,
succeeded in obtaining from the wid
ow a sum in bank bills, for which he

Infidel Jftortvtant. —Frederl c ol
Prussia, visited 011 one occasion a Mo
ravian settlement in his dominions. — j
He was quite delighted with the scene i
of order and harmony which he wit- j
nessed among the simple brethren,
and resolved at once to settle a num
ber of his veterans in the same way.
Accordingly a Moravian village was
erected, and the moravian rules adopt
ed in all things but religion. The
novelty pleasgd the old warriors for a
time, but by and by they began to
quarrel and complain. lMiey behaved
worse than in barracks. The king was
amazed & mortified. He sent for the
Moravian Bishop, &told him that the
experiment had completely failed.
The a?ed Bishop meekly reminded
the royal philosopher, that the settle
ment had been left without Bibles
and hinted that the principles of
French philosophy would not produce
I Moravian villages.

THE SUBSCRIBES com onced th*
duties Of his slat on, a- editor of th s
patter, with a troubling han ! and a reluct-'
ftat heart. H" ha ! no" experience to a d
him, and but limited information to recom*
mend him to the public. He has hem aer
progressed so far, generally, to the
tio'n of his l eaders, for which he is thank'ul.
As the first volume of the Phoenix is on the:
e\ e of "losing, the editor has thought best
to apprize trie public that a new volume
will be commenced next month, and
that the great object of its founders, the
•benefit of the Cherokees, will still be assid
uously pursued. It is unnecessary to >e»
prat and particularize the principles undcf
which the future numbers of the Pho nix
will be conducted —the principles will bfe
similar to those which have governed -the
past numbers. The paper is sacred to the
cause of Indians, and the editor will feel
hirhself especially bound as far as his time}
talents and information will permit, to rrnr
der it as instructive and en,terta nipg as
possible to his brethren, and endeavor to
enlist the friendly feelings and sympathies
of his subscribers abroad, in favor of the
Vs th? present policy of the General
Goverhmerit, the removal of all th" India 9
beyond the limits of organized States or
Territories, is assuming an important aw

'ay before his readers all that may be ad
on this subject, particularly the objections
against this measure of th'- Governirent.

iuage, as the whole must be or g'.na—The
