One morning of the rosy June, At my accustomed place, I missed, at yonder window, A sweet, familiar face Mi.ssod a pair of while hand, sew lug Dainty biu of lace ! Many times I looked oat wandering At the window there Vhy the heavy, drooping curtains, Shut out light and air,. Why a durki-ned, mystic quiet, Brooded over there. ' Was it thns, the pleasant vision, That 1 loved to see That I saw and greeted daily, Ne'er again should be. By that shaded casement, tewing Ever constaotly T Days and weeks weut by, and oyer Looked I forth in vain; Till one morning, when the sunshine Sparkled tUrouch the rain. Yonder at the window, looked out That sweet face again. By and by, the saib was lifted, But the sti anger there Held no work of snowy ronsllo, lu her rocking chair, Cut a pile of reitleu flannel, Very soft aud fuir ! Ne'er I've seen that precious bundle, Since that bright June dy, So I cunnot tell its contents, But, if I durcd, I'd say, A claimiiant for that duinty sewing, Was a baby o'er the way 1 Brady's Leap. Brady's Leap. BY EMERSON BENNETT. a, at av ill 4fi During the cerly Bcttlumente iu the west era port of Pennsylvania and the north western portion of Virginia, tho hardy ad venturers luto thucO thcu wildenivss toli tudes at times suCcicd severely from the in cureious of the Indians. As early as 1780, quite a large tody of worriers, from the vicinity of ttii! Cuyahoga J. ails, came sud denly tlowu upou tlie unprotected froutier, and, before any check could be put to their ravages, succeeded in murdering aud plun dering quite a number of the whites, aud elTucting their retreat iu safety. At thi tiiuo there was a well-auowii In dian hunter ia that vicinity, ouo Ciptaiu Samuel Brady, whose many daring exploits ud hair-breadth escapes had rendered him as famous throughout that rcgioa as his coutcuporary, the celebrated Daulel Boon, was iu Kentucky; . aud heviug under lis leadership a goodly number of as brave and dariHg spirits as hiujoclf, he at ouca called theta Ugetber, selected a certuia number for the exiedaiou, aud set out on the trail of the savages, hoping to overtake them aud iuttict severe chuiiiiemeut before they should reach their viiUjc- " ' . lu this respect, htwtver, the csptaluand bis frieuds were disappoiuted, for the la diaus had gained a Start whicb euablcd theui to reach their tovus n advaucs of their pup suersj but as tbuy belonged to diffeieut tribes, it was discovered that they aepara ted co the bauk of the Citytboga, one part crossing: it od goiuu toihe uoiihward, aod the other turning off to the westward, as 1 I it was BiipposcJ to the Fulls, where It , was known there w as a villnge. This division of tlie Indians rendered it necessary for the whites, if they w ould fol low each trail, to divide their force also, which would weaken it materially, and ren der their further pursuit still more hazard ous; and in view oi this new danger, Cap tain Brady stuted the w hole matter fuirly to his. companion, end inquired of them whnt they were disposed to do uudct- tho circumstance. Should they follo-.v either one of tlie trails, he said, tho other hulf of the Iudiains Would escnpe; should they follow uoither one, all w ould escape, and should they di vide, each division would bo comparatively small, and they might all be eut off iu de tail; therefore it was for them to ehooso whether they would go forward lu one par ty ot two, or return as they were without striking a blow. . The men were not long in deciding; they were unanimous in their desire to pu.sti for ward aud tuke vengeance upou the enemy; they also preferred a division of tho puny, and Accordingly about one-half of them im mediately crossed tlie river and set off to tho northward, while the remainder, under Captain lirndy, followed the westward trail to the Cuyuhoga Full. It was the design aud expectatiou of the galiuut ciuiluiu to take the ludiaus by sur prise; but the latter, expecting to be pur sued by the whiten, were prepared to re ceive them and it was only by a mere acci dent that the borderers were saved from fulling into an ambuscade which would have proved l'utal to all. Seeing that the Indians were fully pre pared for tucinlhat there wus no chance of taking them by surprise that their num bers were at least four timed us many as their own our friends judiciously deter mined upon a retreat; but they bad uct gone far when the Indians, uttering their wildest wur-wlioop?, tet after them in a body. Knowing that if bis racu continued to gethcr, there would be uo hope for any Of them, Captain Brady, in order to save as many-lives ns possible, culled ont to them to disperse iu every directiou, and each man to look out for himself. By this means he expected to divide tho Indian into small parties iu their pursuit of single individuals; and this might huve beeu the result, had they not, anforlanaiciy for his own safety, discovered in hiin their most vindicative and troublesome foe, and at once resolved upon his capture. - Captaiu Brady was well known to the Indians, iu former times ho had hunted with them over these very grounds; but he had subsequently become their most implacable enemy, nud had done them so much injury us to create in them a fiendish desire- to tuke him alive ai.d put him to the torture they well knowing that the accomplish ment of this purpose would not only rid them of the man they both hated and fear ed, but wpuld deprive the whites of their bravest and most during leader, and would thus strike a jnore effective blow against the latter, thau would tho destruction of a dozen or twenty men of lesser note. For this reason, therefore, the moment it was ascertained that he was one of the party, his captore was determined ou by all, uud turning from the pursuit of the others, tho w hole yelling crew set after him. Captaiu Brady bad something of the start, aud wus one of tho fleetest ruuucrs on the border; that be could distance aud escape from a few, he was sauguiue enough to be lieve: but when be found himself recog nized, and looking behind hiin, saw the whole body in chase of himself, his very heart seemed to die within him. AVhet chance had he of escape indeed-'-single banded and alone afar from the refuge of a i .i r P. s ereu a wnaeruess ron ana wun uuy miu riuted Iudians in hot pursuit, urged on by a spirit of revenge, above every other earth ly consideration upon taking him alive or dcifd. But the captaiu wus a bravo man, and a brave man dies bnt once; be was a sanguine mau, too, and would not consider his case hopeless while the freedom of bis limbs re mained j and though, as bo afterwards ex pressed It, "it was hardly oue chance in fif ty, yet be was determined to do bis best, aud have uo fault to fiud with himself fi om a lack of effort. Near the poiut where the race first start ed, the Cuyahoga makes a bend to the South, so as to ueurly enclose an area of several square nvlcs in the form of a peninsula; the direction taken by Brady soon brought him within this enclosure; and the Indians, by cxtcuding their line to two banks of the stream, at the point where they most nearly approach each other, considered hiin as iu a net 1 and announced their satisfaction by yells of triumph. There was now, in fact no chance for him to escape except through their lines or act oss the Cuyahoga river; and considering that the foremost pursuers were not fifty yards behind him, either of these chances wus regarded by the savages as an Impossibility. Still the bardy and gallaut captain did net despair; be had mauy a time hunted over this very ground, and knew every inch of it, end all the windings, turning's, and iieculiiiritito of the river u. well as the Iu i, -i i i tiiuiis iuemscivc: ne anew, loo, mere was one point where the river, compressed with in a few feet; rushed roaring and foaming through a rocky gorge; and it at once ou curred to hiin to bhape bis course for this point, end make a bold, desperate leap for tbs other shore. - lie might full short, aud be dashed to pieces upou the rocks beneath, It was true; but tils would only be a quick and sudden death: the awful tortures of the stake awuited blot if taken alive; aud to tako bint aliva was unquestionably the design of his pursuers, since they bad teg lected to fire upon bits from a distance which would have made their aim fatal , Casting away his rtSu, as only an locum- Iterance w&icn would not serve htm la this strait, be bounded forward with renewed energy and w ith a bare hope of life be fore him, be Ccd with a speed that few could fqual slightly galuiujj upon the the fleetest of kid foes but not snUlcientty, during the w hole race, ta take Mm beyond the easy reach of a rifle laU. Jfssrer and uearer be came to, the ruob Ir.g and foaming atreaia ; eu4 aa be fcesrd the roar of the waies, aod &ayr that bat a few seconds could iotervee btwcea the present and tba awful leap which might save or destroy bim, bis brmrt beat wildly, and bid whole frame seemed to tremble with the Intense concentration of b!s tui.id upon the fearful veuture. Nearer" and nearer be came; louder vtrew J the roar of the waters; the awful chasm ' gradually yawning before him, and the white rpray of the fearful torrent rising tw his view; the Indians Vellimr behind: and his ouly hope here; aud then contracting hia muscles, as his IVet tightly preasod tho precipitous rock, ond throwing iuto them all the power of bis concentrated will, he leaped into the air, like a bounding ball, and landed, aafely upon the other rocky verge of the abyss, striking a little below the height from w hich be -pnnig; but paus ing a clear distance of twvuty-two feet be tween the mural shores. Instautly grasping some bushes which fringed tho verge of the awful chasm, to prevent himself from fulling backward into the seething strcuai, the gallant captaiu stood for a few moments panting from bin exertions, and striving to recover bin breath for still another flieht. In those few moments the Iudians ap peared upon the opposite bluff; expecting to find that he had been dashed to pieces upon the rocks below; bnt ou diseoveriug him Mifely on the opposito side; their us tonibhuieiit was so .great aa iuvoluuiarily uud simultaucously todruw from them some two or three short, approving whoops for getting iu their first surprise that he was clearly beyond their reach, and not seeming to recollect it till he bad begun to vigorous ly climb tho ridgo above him iu bis further efforts ot escape. Then drawing up their rides, with a quick aim, they poured iu upou him somethiug like a regular volley, most of the balls whistling closo around him, and ono of them lodging i bis hip, and inflicting a severe aud painful w ound. Notwithstanding tliM, the ifallant fellow continued bis asccut, uud, on reaching the top of the ridge gave a yell of deiianeo, and disappeared ou tho other side. - - Captaiu Brady was now aware that the Indiuns would have to make a considerable circuit lu order to reach him ; and bad be not beeu so severely wounded; he would have considered his escape u almost cer tain; but knowing bo wonld still be follow ed, and finding his wound very painful, and the cords of his leg fast stiffeuing, he cant about him for some place to secrete himself H'om-their search. After running a short distance be dire- covered a pond, ond near the shoro a large oak which had fallen into it; there might be nothing better thau this; and hurrying lorwara wun ail ins might, he boldly pluug en in, swam uuaer water to the tree, ana came up beneath tho truuk and amoug the Drauchco, m such a manner as to be barely auie to iireatne without exposing any por tion, ot nis person to his enemies. Here in a state of mind whicb may be imagined but cannot be described, the gal lant borderer remained for a Jong time, watching his enemies as they collected one by oue along tho shore at toe poiut whore bis bloody trail bad disappeared iu the wa ter. Still resolved upon Cudiug bim, either living or dead, tho savages wcro by uo means disposed to give up. the search; and after running along the bhore for a con siderable distance, on either side of hid trail, to ascertain if possible where be bad emerged from tho water, severul of the party plunged in, swam out to the oak, and actually seated themselves upon it, while they couversed in their own language, which be understood, concerning bis won derful escape. At last, with such feelings of joy as no one uot similarly circumstanced might com prehend, he heard them statp their belief that he wui drowned, aud his body lost to them by being suuk in deep water, and soon after this, to bis still greater joy, they quietly returned to the shore, and oue by one all gradually disappeared. Kemuinuig iu his uncomfortable position till be considered it safe to leave it, the wonnded captain himself then swam back to the land; and weary, lame, and hungry as bo wa3 alone, and without a weapon for bis defense he set off on bis long, te dious journey through the wilderness for bis own home; which he eventually reached more dead than alive; and where, to bis great gratification, he found the compan ions of his perilous expedition already re tamed ia safety.

The Ocean Telegraph. Mr. Field's Account of the Laying of the Cable—His Arrival at Trinity Bay—Operators Asleep—He tests the Insulation by his Tongue—Is Knocked over—Is another Cable to be Laid? From the N. Y. Tribune, Wednesday evening. ' Mr. Field describes the foiling whicb pervaded all oa board tba Niagara wbilo tho cabla was being laid, as one of the most intense excitement. Every man ex erted himself to the utmost to achieve suc cess in the work. Throughout the six and a hulf days the most perfect sileuco and at tention prevailed among the men, lest a siugla moment of negligence should destroy tba oablo. ' On the first day after paying out began It was found that tba cabla was being paid out tt ft rata whicb, in proper tioa to the distance run. would. If contin d, have defeated tba enterprise.. This was owing ta tha fact thai tba ca ble oa tha Niagara bad caused so much lo cal attraction aa to seriously derauga tha compasses, rendering It impossible to steer the ship. Next day tha commander of tbs Qorgoa being apprised vt tha fact, ra ahad of tba Niagara, steering ia the most direct, course for Trinity Bay. This be continued to do day and night until they arrived, never leavieg the deck exoept for a few taomeutfi, and aryioj bis jvonitloa by repeated ohaarvatiuns by tha sun, moon aud stars. Ta his agency therefor tbe success of tlie acWeveoieatjs greatly Indebt ed. When bis arduous task was accornplisli ed, his eyes were swollen and scffiirted with Mood fr'ra long loss of sleep, aud he was almost prostrated from the immense fa tigue which ho bad undergone. Without bis assist once the Cable would have beeu' ex hausted long beforo the Niagara reached land, and to bis agency, therefore, the suc cess of the achievement is largely Indebted. Mr. Field lauded near the Telegraph station, Trinity Bay, at 2 o'clock, lu the morning,' and wulked to the bouse, half a mile distant, through the wilderness, uot a person being visible on the beach. At the telegraph bouse be found the operators from Londou fust asleep, hot one of them expecting that the enterprise would succeed. Indeed they had not unpacked their trunk; anticipating that iu a week or two they would be ordurcd back to London. . As it would have periled thu safety Of the cable to have waited for daylight bo fore resuming operations, the steamer was kept right ou through, tho night. Cupt. Otter, who is a skillful pilot, id also n very prudent man. Anticipating that the Niag ara might arrive in the night, be causnj boats to be stationed up tho bay, uloug the course laid out fur her, aud at a sigu.il the meu iu them kindled blazing 'torcbcp, and people along the shore lighted huge bon fires to guide the uui'luurs ou their way. The rensou why siguals and not words were sent through the cable us it was being luiJ, is thut ou the previous attempt the clerks indulged in irrelevant conversation, which distructed their ntteution from duly at a time wheu the faintest obstruction might be fatal to the work. The Directors, therefore, ordered that sigtiald only should tie sent tnrougti tlie cable from ship to ship. uom vessels nun ureunwicii time, and the electric current played tq and fro between them fur ten minutes each way. Tho signals showed that ou the Grat day the upeed of the Agamemnon sliirhtly ex- ceeded that of the Niiigara, but on the succeeding days they went at tho same pace, thore uever being any more thau SJO miles difference between them. When the cable was lauded at both ends, Mr. Field apjilied his tongue to the cud, and received uiu eacenng information mat the insolula lion was perfect, in a shock that nearly threw him over. The rtnswu why message were not transmitted earlier was from tbs Tact that all the apparatus ut both ends was new and untried, and required a great ueai oi care and skill to adjust. Mt. 1 icld states that there is not the siiguicst aouot that the cable is au enure success, as great or greater thaui iu most sauguiuo friends looked forward to. By the Persia to-day he writes to the Direct ors to prepare another cable at once, as it U evident that the prcseut oue, which will in a short time transmit messages as rapid ly as any tcnal line, will be entirely ineffi cient for the business which will flow to it. Uutii the first of September the line will be closed to all messages save those from f he Gorerumout of Great Britain and the United State. Daring that time Mr. Field will keep the public advised of all matters affecting tbo success of tho cable. The Terminus of the Atlantic Cable and Surrounding Scenery. All who have visited Trinity Bay, New foundland, with one consent allow it to be one of the most beautiful sheets of water they ever sot eyes upon. Its color' is very peculiar an inexpressible mingling of the pnro blue ocean with the deep evirgreen woodlands and the serene blue sky. lid ex tremo length is about eighty miles, its breadth about thirty miles, opeuiug boldly into tho Atlantic on thu northern side of the island.' At its southwestern shore it branches into the Bay of Bull's Arm, which is a quiet, safe and beautiful harbor about two mile iu breadth, and nine or ton in length, running in a direction northwest. The depth of water is sufficient for the largest vessels. The tide rises seven or eight feet, and the bay terminates in a beau tiful sand beach. 1 he shore is clothed with dark green fir trees, which mixed with birch and mountain ash presents a pleasing contrast. The land rises gradual ly from tho water all around, so as to afford ono of thu most convenient and agreeable town sites in the island. You aicend only about a quarter of a mile- from tho water and there are no longer tree but wild grass, like an open prairie. Here are found at this season myriads of the upland cranberries, upon which unnumbered ptar migan, or the northern partridge, feed. The rasp-berrv, bake-npple berry, and tbo whortle berry are also common. Num erous little lakes may be seuu in tbe open, elevated grouud, from which flow rivulets affording abundance of fine trout. After ascending for about a mile and a half, you are then probably 300 or 400 feet above the tide, and nothiug cao exceed the beau ty of the scene when, at one view you be hold the placid waters of both Trinity and PUcentia Bays the latter sprinkled with clutters of verdant i.slunds. You can now deduoud westward as gra dually as you came up from tho .Telegraph landing, to tbo shore of Flacenti Bay, w here there ts an cxcclleut harbor and ad mirable fisheries, skirting the shoro, and the accompanying road running along the Telegraph lino leading from St. Johns westward through the bland, to Capa Ry. At this season of tbe year game is vory abundant, Reindoer in great numbers, bear, wolves others very numerous, tba largu northern bare, foxes, wild geose, dacks, Lc. About four miles southward of the en trance of the Biy of Bull's Arm, on tbe shore of Piaccntia Bay, is situated the extraordinary La Mancbe lead mine, tbe oronertT of tho Telegrapn company, ai readv Yieldinsr a rich supply of remarkably pure galena.- Tba placa where tba Cable is landed is memorable ia ths history of tho iolaud as ths naval battle ground between tba Freocb and English, in tbeir early struggle for tba exclusive cccopany of tbe valuable 5aberica along tba coaat.

The Suitpd tar April contains a very in teresting article on consumption, based np on a theory promulgated by Dr. XT ashing, ton. The substance of it amounts to this: That the food we cat is first converted into albumen ; that tho albumen Is convey id by a vein, into which it is directly deposited, to the right side of the heart ; thut It is thence transferred at ouee to the lungs, where it ia converted by the air webreittlio iuto blood ; that if this air be lusuCivicnt in quantity or indifferent in quality, the al bumen, instead of turning into blood, forms tubercles, and these tulmrckv? are the phy sical elemeuts of consumption. That u, in few and plulu word, tho w hole of the new theory. Of course the remedy is a simple one viz; plenty of getod fresh ftir. Noth ing could be cheaper nothing any more satisfactory. But will it do f We incline t auswer lu the affirmative We have kuowu more than one consumptive friend. W bo, ufter despairing of all help by means of medicine, effoctnally cured theoksolvea by the iuot reckless exposure to every species of weather. Fresir air, we have reason tolcuow. In one of thu best medica ments in the whole catalogue of liumati' re novators. It has but one fault it's to economical. Nobody likes to get well so inexpensively This mtv seem odd ; but it is true, nevertheless. We take a nmcli pride iu our sickness as we do iu any other luxury we possess, or fancy we .-au afford to iudulge in, aud humau nature, aa Miss Biug soys iu the play, ' cunnot bear to have luxuries so cheap as to be really vul gar.' - ' Getting Fixed. It is the fate let us rather say tbe good foriuue of men, to be always fixiug aud never fixed. There w, no aud theu a Dudhjuk, who imagines that his bouse is done nud will last forever,- that be lives under the rule of certain immutable iustructious, that he himself is solid immovable. Imper ishable. But the Dodlocka, though a very proud, ure a very miserly people. Tbe fact is, u man is uever so happy a when be ia fixing, and the poor fellow who is o unfor tunate as uot to have a single improvement to make upon bis place or iu bis house, has uo resort but to sell uud buy a-rain. The most foolish thing a uiauUu do is to per fect everything around him at once. A home needs to bo devuloped with tha grow ing life of the )wuer. New and fresh ideas uced to bo Introduced to engage atteutiou and study. The nystematio and lifelong ucvuiopiuuiu oi a noma, u as good lor a luuu us a tour of Europe aud a liberal edu cation combined. .No mun can afford to do in one year, lu a fever or impatience. what will add pleasure aud significance to a dozen years. There is a jov Iu seem" thing3 grow, aud in growing with tbem. We are very apt to get settled dowu iu our comfortable bouses: aud, iu some lazy hour, wish that nothing may disturb their uxturcs. iut the spring eleauiuj cornea. along, aud miu bate spring cleaning. ibuca is not tne case with women.. They giory in u. more u a savage satisfaction in it, springing up iu every woman's mind. We saw a stove moving out of our owu hense the other day, and overheard tbe con clusion of un arrangement with the meu who moved to come, upon a given time, and shako some carpels. It bad got to be doue. Wo saw that, ia tbe culm, deter mined eye of tbe lady of the house. We were not consulted iu the matter at all. Paint has got to be scrubbed; windows are bound to be washed; curtuius are to be taken down and done up; there Lave got to bo complaints for two weeks of lame backs procured by nailing down carpets; everything must be turned over and turued wroug s,ide out, and. at last, all will come right again. The mi.slress will be satisfied, the girls will be sick, the bouse will . bo as clean and w holesome as a cedar, closet, and the ladv will survey the premises with tbe pride which good housekeepers ' who love their lord bo much delight to iudulge in. Next year tbe thing is to be repeated, with the same results. Nothing will stay fixed. - Besides developing our homes, from year to year, and kcepiug them clean; we arw obliged to keep them iu repair. Thai which vitality builds only loses the vitalizing prin ciple to become the prey of chemist ry. The fence has rotted and needs repairing. Tbe wood, in a score of inatauee.i, must take tho place of that which is decayed. Vio lence has done its work also. The teamster drove against the fence very carelessly, and broke it. Nobody know tbir half auozsu lights of glass were broken out of tbe wood Ilouee windows. 8o somathiug always wants fixing, and after it is fixed we f:el better, provided the bill be not exhorbitant; and this everlasting fixing, is the great comfort of life. Tho man who U routty fixed -w ho has nothing left to be fixed has not hitij to do but die. Lifo bus no more of pleasure for bim. Th4re ia noibiug left to bo obtained, 60 we say to everybody who baa tho slightest temptation to get everything right at onc, nud thus to have it done with, to do no such tiling. Cherish your wuats.
