' Wlint injustice 1 What inmlence I"
Tlieie words were iniered by a loioly
woman, whitstt fluihed cl.eek, (laaliiug
eyes, and knitted tiruw, spoke even more
ihan lhe words, of tlie iuiiignalion which
filled Iter heart. She was the young wife
of Commodore Coe, ilia commander oj'
(he mall navy nf Montevideo. -' The lady
was Spanish by bind is well is feelings,
and the cause of her anger wai the sight
of 'a ship which hid been for two days
Handing off and op before ihe harbor,
using every species of insult and di'liance
to induce llie vessel nf the commodore to
come out and light liim. This the latter
could not do for two reasons ; the first
was illness, which confined him lo his cot
llie second, thai he had not one-third (if
a crew, and uol even men enough lo man
his battery,
At the moment when she tittered the
words which commence this sketch, Cap
lain Drown, llie commander of ihe lluonos
Ayrean ship, had hoisted a flag, whereon
was pairiled in large characters ihe insur
ing , iii8cri)ii)n-r" Coe, (lie Cowsrd." -This
was rgnre than his noble anil fiery
wife could aland, for she well knew her
husband's irulh and valor. i Afier gazing
for one instant al Ihe flag, the raised her
jeweled hand, and taking off a diamond
ring of great value, exclaimed lo the men
who alpod around her on Ihe deck
" 1 will give this diamond lo any iran
who will bring me yonder flag.1'' '' '',
For a moment there was no response.
The men looked al licjr officers, the offi
cers glanred at each other, but volunteer!
fur a service so desperate seemed scarce. .
' What Lis there not one of all ol you
who will dors ihs trial? Is my husband's
ship indeed manned with cowards!"; n
claimed the lady, her beautiful lips end
ing with sci r i, and her flashing ey! gleam
ing with f ru empt. L.
' A young officer, an Englishman, who
bad been ' lately appointed, stepped for
ward and modestly aaid
"I was only wailing for my seniors lo .
speak, Senora, ; llnd any one of litem
volunteered, I Bhould have begged lo ac
company him. As il is, I pledge myself
to bring you 'yonder flag, before ihe sun
rises again, or lo die. , Utit I ask not your
jewel as' a prijjo for my lurrcss one

' You shall have botli, brave boy !" re
plied liie lady, and her look of cold scorn
changed into a 'swee smile as ihe atdted
his name.

; Denne.ll had been careful when ill! last
light of (tie day gave opportunity ip take
llie eiacl position of ihe eueniy's ship,
which was lying (iff ihe shore, and by this
alone he hoped to find lier. ' Dpflng ibis
lime llie lady was on the. deck, regarding
the arrsriigemenis of lliej little parly who
were aoout io pusn uu, , , At . me moment
when ihe boat's crew cried out lliat all
. was rqatly for a, atari, their, young leader
approacijfu ine .senora, nnu is King irom
his jieek a miniature, hp handed it lo her
Willi a letter, sayinj .
" If I am hot on boardby sunrise, lady,
you will fulfill a sailor's dying, wish if
you transmit these to' the direction of iho
letter.. ' ,i i. . .... .. t: .. -'
- The lady looked at the' picture I it was
the likeness nf a young and beautiful girl.
tear started lo her oye. ,, . ,, ,
" Ah, forgiie me," alio exclaimed," who
would, in a' moment of passion, have per
illed the life of one who haa other duties
and lies which bid him live. Your life is
precious, 1 will nol expose it."
" This is my only sister, whom I almost
adore,'! interrupted the you ill, "but one
who would blush fur me if I played Ihe
coward, and dishonored the name of my
brave father. Send the letter, senora, and
the likepess to ber, if I full. Farewell, till
to-morrow, or for ever 'V , .,,
The lady, was about lo answer, and
again enlreal him lo slay, but in an instant
he was over Ihe side, and the hoat pushed
off. , . , -
i The night was pitchy dark. A calm
w.ib on llie sea . and in Ihe, air ; but ii
was porlenlious of a storm. A small light
and compass had been placed in the boal,
and by thcao Ihe young sailor shaped his
course ,: ., ', ... ,. ..
' Oive way, my lids a long, strong, and
steady pull," said he, in a law lone, as he
left Ihe ship's side, and he soon fell, by
Ihe trembling of the Irail boat, that his di
rections were obeyed. They i pulled
straight in the direction of the ship and
out lo sea, regardless of the approaching
ijlorm. the young officer keeping bis eye
sjleadily fixed on llie compass, unlil he
knew if the vessel remained in ihe posi
tion she was jn at sunset that be must be
very ncac her. Du he looked in vain lo
jee her dark figure looming up in ihe
gloom. At thjs ! moment,,' when' he was
completely at a loss which, way, to sircr,
Ihe liark clouds which had been gathering
round ihem buret with a long mid flash
nf lightning, and a peal of deafening thun
der. He heard nol the ihuiider he heed
ed not the rising slurm. That flash of
lightning bad showed him the vessel at a
short distance from him.
" Steady, my men, steady," ho whim
pered; when the ihu ider ceased.'""
shall pull directly under her stern."
At this instant another flash of lightning
illuminated sky and water, and llien, aa he
glanced up where the flag had been hois
ted during the day, he saw that il was no
(onger there j il had been removed. lie
paused for luomoTil io think what was
lo bo ton, aijd then forts eJ his resolu
tion.. ' ', i . ' '
" I shnll go on board alone, men," said
he. " Keep ihe boat where she is, ex
actly. If the flag is where 1 think it is,
in llie captain's cabin, 1 will have ll. If
I em Dot back in Ave minutes, and if you
should hear any alarm, make ihe best of
your way lo the ship and tell Ihe benora
and my males that I died like a man.
You must be camions. Take io the sail,
for the storm will be upon us in a few min
utes." , These hasty commands were whisper
ed lo Ihe men, who leant forward in the
boat lo catch the order they dared not
disobey, much a they' wished lo share
their leder's peril.
Springing lightly Irom the boal, the
young roan caught the netting", which
were within reach, and noiselessly ascen
ded lo the bulwarks, lie could hear the
regular tramp of the ntjjceron deck;, who,
having everything orru'nged fur ihe com.
ingBtorm, had km little aciive business to
occupy him. See him he cou)d pot, on
account of lha impenetrable darkness of
llie night, ami in a care which was uiten
to prevent a light being used on the ship
lliat might be the means of betraying ihe
position of Ihe , vessel to their enemies on
llOroY'.,. i , .' i. . i
For i second ,he listened wiihth robbing
heart In llie steps aa they approached him.
The officers turned once mure, and in that
instant the gallant young sailor was down
'on the deck and al llie cabin door,' whjch
Stood slightly ajar. He peeped in through
the narrow crack and saw a red-faced old
captain seated. al hia round table wilh two
of his officers by Ilia i side, engaged over
the contents of various 'hollies, A glance
at die settee just lo Ike left of his table
showed the object of the enterprise the
flag for which he had perilled his life lay
ihere-7liore it had becqcarrlersly (hrowu
after it wai hauled down. , ',,
The young officer did not pause long to
consider what to do, but quickly walked
into (he cabin,' ahd taking ''off his cap
bowed very politely lo the officers, and as
he stepped towards lh flag, said In a calm
anu cuurivoiia manner iu mo uopidiii
"I have come lo borrow this banner,
sir, to wear tn-morrnwr-lf you tave not
die slightest objeniion T . .,:-. , .,,
i' Who the devil are you 1' '. '
What docs thta niesri" .cried the
captain, as he and his officers sprang upon
their feet, astonished al Iho extraordinary
proceodjng. ' 1 ' "
'','"1 am an officer, sirj'of tlio'vesoel tvliicli
ie id vender hsibor.'t said lhe vnunf .nan,
who had now seised the flag, and 1 mean
Mo carry this to my commodore, i. . t
' As he said this' he bounded to the cabin
door, fulloeed closely by a bullet from the
captain's pistol ; and ere the alarm became
general lie sjouu upon the tarui ol (lie
vessel,; , ,.;,',!,' ' ;, . . ,
, " Lodk, ohl for me below," he shouted ;
and flung' lliillsulf 'inio the sea without a
moment's riesitatlon!' His boal'j crew re
cognized hit voide; he waa caught in a
moment and dragged into the boat, while
a. volley o, pisiui,pals war sent tlpwn
at random bv those who were above.
The siorm had now broken ; arid he wind
began to iomo In with fitful and fierce!
gOily!rf':?M.-T 1 I
' " Up with the sail, be in a hurry, lads,'!
fried. )i8 youg herp, as soon as lie could
recover his br'ealh sfier his ducking. , I
The crew' prom;nly obeyed his orders,
and the next momenli ihe .illle boat was
flying in towards the harbor before, the
blast like a glad sea-bird, winging its way
lo its nest 1 1 i i ' ;
K- 'J'ie enemy opened a harmless random
fire of grape-shot io their direction, but it
puly served to lellj the anxious watchers
on board their vessel that something had
occurred, and Ihev therefore at once show
ed lights an enabled the boat lo be kept
straight rot her.'1" ' t' n.
Il was abpul half-an-hnur alter the guns
had been fired by the ship al sea, lliat the
boal of the young adventurer rounded lo
alongside of his own craft.
" Have you captured the ling I cried
the young 'Senora, as Bennett bounded
over the side.
. .The only answer she received was the
banner, wel as il was from the water, and
cut into pieces by the balls which had
been fired al its captor. : The light of llie
vessel beamed nol half so brightly as elm
the lady's eye when she caught the no
ble youth to her arms, and kissed him
again and again. , " '

The lowest estimate made by Mr.

the mass the head of a i little girl which he
knew was'lhat of his daughter by a bit of
ribbon fa le el t lha hair; but any oilier
portion bf the body he would never find,
or if he found il he would never be able to
say it was the body of his child. The
house of Mr. Moses is a white house, about
fonr hundred feet" di'iiani.'and against the

ed by grops of inconsol ible mourners."'
" I ho precise cause of die explosion no
one remains' lo explain. Il is known,
however, that the stove used for warming
the building wat red Jiot, the dy being
very cold; and from the highly 'combusti
ble materials which were used in cluse
proximity to' it; it may readily be account
ed fur by auppornj; some particle ignited
on the floor, and cammunicating with the
articles in verioufc,loges 'of preparation,
caused the explosion.. , ? , . ' ' '
" Within a few Teet nf ihe building is a
lire-proof cell, in Which is stored large
quantities of powder ; and this being with
in the scope of the tmoke and flames of
iho burning ruint, no Pue was willing lo

The building occupied by Mr. French,
for ihe manufacture of hit rifle cartridges,
wat a one slbry wooden buildin, twenty

Identity It. '
Sayethe Herald: " .
" It is said that Ihe fire originated in the
northeast corner of the building, in the
opposite end of the building from the stove,
but from what cause is unknown. ,
" There were over 50 000 ball cartridges
made up In the building, besides1 a consid
erable quantity of powder.; The1 cartridges
nearly nil exploded,, and the balls were
ttirown iu every direction ; but providen
tially no person out of the building was
seriously injured. Due or the balls pass
ed through a pane nf ghss into ihe libra
ry room of Mr; Uodine, a distance of one
eighth ol I mile, and shattered the chin
