A Race For Life.
One IitiinliL'tl ye.'ws ngo tliere lived
upon the sliores ot Su-jiliena River a
mhuII slrciini emptying into Casco Bay
a man named lVlcr John. An hone!,
upright fellow, a good neighbor and
friend, but with one abominable habit,
that won liim tunny enemief, aud caused
much (liscouil'oit mid even fullering to
those around linn. This fault was al
most irresistible fondness for practical
joking, that would not allow Jiiin to lit
nn opportunity pass unimproved where
in lie could gratify this special passion
ot his being.
There came a' time, however, when the
exercise of this peculiarity brought up
on him an ordeal so sharp that ii cured
his uiitoi lunate propensity, to the gieat
joy ot his family and friends. The pro
cess was disagreeable, but the cure was
effectual and permanent.
One day Peter had been at woik a
few miles from his home. After his
day's labor was finished, his employer
invited him to partake of the evening
meal with him ; this invitation Peter ac
cepted, aud t lion, his system fortified by
a hearty supper, he commenced his jour
ney home waul.
The path which Peter trod that night
would lead .one to-dny throuull cultivat
ed fields aud by many iileas.nit farm
houses, but then it was a broken forest.
'It was a dm k, cold December night,
the wind swept among the great pines
and beeches, and siiange, mourning
sounds went sobbing through the forest;
now and then an owl uttered its hoarse
cy, or the sudden 1 all ling ot the dead
leaves told when some timid animul
scurried away from the sound of foot
steps. Hut Peter was strong and stout-hearl-ed(aiid
trudged quietly along, without
paying much attention to the sights and
sounds usound him, until he had achiev
ed perhaps one hall his journev, when
suddenly his ears caugtu the sound of
horses' feet descending the long, rocky
path behind him. Gradually the sounds
it lew nearer, until the sharp peculiar
voice ot the Horseman could be heard
urging the horse to a faster gait.
' "Ah, hal" said Peter to himself, as lie
heard the familiar tones, "that is Uncle
ftow uncle lorn aud 1'eter were
neighbors, that is to say, their clearings
lay about a mile apart, and none knew
Letter than i'eter that the old man was
naturally of a timid disposition, and
furthermore that nothing inspired him
with greater fear, nothing that he had
not rather meet than a wolf.
No sooner, therefore, had Peter be
come convinced that tho horseman be
hind was his neighbor, than he resolved
louse tins trait ol Uncle lorn 8 as 4
means of working out what he consider
ed would be a most capital joke. His
plans were soon laid, and lie proceeded
to put them into execution. Creeping
through the undergrowth that bordered
his path, he crouched dowu and patient'
ly awaited the approach oi his victim.
He had not wailed long before Uncle
Tom, his horsa at a sharp trot aud him
self casting timid glance around, arrived
opposite the place of Ids concealment,
l eier allowed him to pass a few paces,
aad then springing forward on his bands
and knees, he uttered one or two biiuiI
ing yelps, followed by the loud, clear
gathering cry of the wolves.
, The effect upon Uncle Tom wa elec
trical. (Springing half way out of bis
saddle, he uttered scream ot terror,
and then, stooping until his head nearly
touched the niaiie, he plunged his spur
into tne horse's flanks and was off down
the road like a shot. ' A for Peter, he
rolled over on , his back and kicked his
heels in huge enjoyment of success.
Loud and loug h laughed, occasionally
varying tho performance by making the
fo est ring with a repetition of the samo
w.ld savage cry that had si rut k such
terror into Uncle Tom's timid heart.
liut there is an end to all things, and so,
altera while, there was an end to Peter's
mirth, and he, wiping his eyes, regained
the path and was about fo resume his
journey, when he heard a sound thai
sent the cold shivers coursing over his
body, and almost froze the blood in his
veinsr The wolves hnd heard his sue-
cessiui imitation ot their music, ami
were coming down, full cry, upon him.
In an instant he realized his position
and peril. Prom tho sounds he knew
that the wolves were comine down 011
either side of the path he had jiiBt trav
eled, aud therefore the nearest point ol
salety was his own clearing, more than
a mile away.
Ml this passed through his mind like
a flash, ami then calling all his energies
into piny, he dashed down the path with
scarcely less speed aud terror than did
Uncle Tom Harry himself. Peler'was a
famous runner, and had come off victor
iu many trials of speed when tbe neoole
had come together at a raising or log
rolling, but this was no holiday game.
He was not taxing his muscles to wi.i
applause ot admiring friends or to grati
fy an ambition. The race was for life.
Down the long slope that led to Pil-
k ill's Hollow, and up the ascent beyond,
fled Peter, while hardly a hundred yards
behind came a snarling pack, hungry
and tierce. The life ot un unarmed man
would not be worth a minute's purchase
could they once surround him. This
I'eter acknowledged to himsolr, as a
thought entered his mind of standing ou
the defensive, so he abandoned the
tlkoughl before it was fully formed, and
braeec Lnnselt anew lor flight.
Down another long slope, across a
broad sheet of ice at its foot, and Leth
tr bee's Hill, with its long, steep ascent,
lay before him. He shuddered as he
glanced up its rugged side, for he fell
that his strength would scarcely suffice
to carry him to the top. The perspira
tion streamed from every pore, Lis breath
t'lime in short, wheezing gasps, his steps
were becoming unsteady, and once, strik
ing his feet against a loose stone, he pre
served himself from falling only by an
exertion so great that the blood spurted
from his mis nils and flames seemed to
leap betore his vision.
iStill he kept ou, though it seemed
mildness to hope, tor his pursuers had
gained on him tearfully ; he knew it by
the beating ot their looUleps, but with
energies inspired by mortal terror, he
ran on, hoping to gain only the brow ot
the hill, lor there the ground became
more open, and his own cabin was but a
tew yards beyond. He felt sure that
his pursuers would not follow hirr. be
yond the summit, but could he reach it
before they would close upon him?
No, not by his own 'exertion, for just
as the thought passed through his mind,
his fool, caught under a gnarled root
that extended across the way and he fell
heavily forward; his head Btruck the
frozen ground aud he lay senseless.
When Peter recovered consciousness
he found himself hanging over the broad
shoulders of his brother John, and about
entering his own door. Here he soon
collected his scattered sense and was
able to listen intelligently to his broth
er's account of his rescue.
Uncle Tom Rarry, iu his flight, had
stopped at the cabin long enough to
shout through the window thai the
wolves were out and hurried on. John,
who lived willi his brother, knowing
lliat Peter must come the' same path,
look his gun and walked out to the edge
of the forest, where he halted to listen.
Rut a short lime elapsed betorte he heard
lie sound of tho pursued and pursueis
aud rushing down the hill ho arrived up
on the scene just in time lo leap between
Peter's prostrate, form and the vvVlves,

11 bullet into the creature s brain, and
then, while the pack were fighting over
the dead body of their comrade, he slung
Peter over his back and gained the open
ground in safety.

The Aleuts of Alaska.
The Aleuts of Alaska are evidently of
somewhat dill'ereut slock from the Indi
ans of the mainland, aud seem to re
semble more the Japanese than any of
the Astatic people. They possess consid
erable adaptability, aud up to a certain
point are readily taught. The old Rus
sian Company maintained several schools
in which Ah ill children were taught to
r ad and write the Russian language;
and al the present time the Alaska Com
mercial Company supports schools ou the
fur seal islands where, during eight
mouths iu the )ear the Aleut children
are given the rudiments of . a ' good
Engl oh education. The quality which
most distinguishes the civilized from the
uncivilized man is that ot providence.
"Sufficient tor the day is the evil thereof"
is emphatically the motto of the savage
and it is only us some considerable degree
of civilization has been secured that thu
desire ot saving lor tho needs of the
future begins to operate 1 Judged by
this standard, some of the Aleuts are
making great advances. A' considerable
sum ot money has been saved by those
engaged in the fur seal fishery, and at
least one ot them has quite a large de
posit to his credit iu a Sail Francisco
savings , bank. Some part of the im
provement is also owing, no doubt, to
the better accommodations which they
now have, tor the habitation makes tbe
mau almost as much: as the roan makes
the habitation. UutU a very short time
ago those engaged in seal fishery lived
as all the Aleuts lived, in underground
huts, or rather caves, which it was im
possible to clean or free from smoke;
but the American company has now
firovidel for them comfortable board
muses above ground, iu which they are
learning to live much more lika rational
beings. Alaska Herald. ,
With their carefully prepared roots
and herbs, many ot our mothers or
grandmothers could as well alleviate the
ills ot humanity as can many of the
college-bred M. D.'s ; bat note with what
care those roots and herbs were galht-rd
and prepared. That they might retain
all their virtues, they yt-re invariably
cured iu the shade. Now we, as farmers.
may learn from this a lesson ot wisdom
and practical utility, as applied to the
nay Held. Cure in the shade versus
make hay while the sun shines. Now
the qiieslon arises, which of these two
antagonistic principles, or maxims shall
we follow 7 tertauly, after duo rellec
tion, all will admit tliat hay cured iu the
shade is superior to that cured in the
sun, whereas the former answer to the
above interrogation, both the price of
hay aud the price ot labor must be taken
into consideration ; therefore, in general,
we reply it labor is plenty and hay com
mamliug large prices, enre in the t-hade;
but it labor is high aud hay at low fig
ures, cure in the sun. There are alsj
other matters to be taken into account.
Thus, a large crop of clover should in
variably be cut and partially wilted,
gathered up in cocks ot suitable size
and allowed to sweat a day or two;
then open the same, aud after an hour's
exposure to the sun it will be in most
excellent condition to store away for
winter's use. Therefore, cure clever in
the shade or cock, not simply because, il
the crop be large, it will require lo suf
ficiently cure it at least one or two days
cxposiiig.lt the sun, and as a matter
ot necessity, exposing it to the night
dew, and possibly to an unexpece 1 rain
storm. N ow, as a hot sun is particularly
injurious lo clover, and moisture, as dew
or rain, far more so, therefore clover, ai
least, should be treated ii: the manner
altove described, or cured in the shade.
Avoid the very, common and injurious
practice of over-curing the hay. If the
grass is matured when cut, and does not
get wet, it will be siiflijeully dried or
cured in from two to four hours in favor
able weather ; clover, eariy cut, and
lodged grasses being ot course excep
tions. Juitrnal of lite J'hrm.
The Christian Union (Henry Ward
Beecher's paper) iu speaking of the
present political campaign says:
One accustomed to study things iu
their courses is fairly bewildered. All
ordinary laws of cause and effect seem
lo have failed. The most vioient Pro
tectionist known to Ameicaii history
chosen to be the candidate of the parly
whi'jli has always nude, itself the cham
pion of Free Trade 1 That his brethren's
eleven sheaves should do obeisance to
Joseph's one sheaf was far less wonder
ful than that Mr. Greeley's political ene
mies should bo seen .bowing down
around the husbandman whose flail has
been resounding on their backs for thirty
years 1 Six months ago the Republican
party could laugh to scorn any op po
sition. It is different now. We beleive
that it will save itself, but it will be by
thorough organization and the most in
cessant work. The campaign is to be
do holiday procession ; not even a Slier
man's march to the sea. It is lo be
more like Grant's march to Richmond,
fighting night and day, earning every
step with a battle."

Official Report of the Rebel Agent Whom
Went to Visit in Canada
How Greeley, in Conference with
Rebels, Helped the Rebel Cause.
The following is an exact copy of the
original report of Jacob Thompson,
secret agent of the lute Confederate
Govennieut. stationed in Canada for the
purpose ot organizing an insurrection in
the Northern Slates, and burning the
principal cities. The original paper is
now in the hands ot the Government:
Toronto, C. W., Dec. 3, 1804.
JIdn. J. P. Benjamin, Secretary of State :
Slit: Several limes have I attempted
to send you communications, but 1 have
no assurance that any one of them has
been rectived. I have relaxed no effort
to carry out the object thu Government
had In view iu scuding me here. I had
hoped at different times to have accom
plished more, but still I do not think my
missiou has been altogether fruitless. Al
all eveuls, we have afforded the North
western Slates the amplest opportunity
to throw off the galling dynasty al
Washington, aud openly lo take ground
in favor of Stale rights aud civil liberty.
This fact must satisfy the large class of
discontents at luiuu ot the readiness and
w illingness of the administration lo avail
itsetl ot every proffered assistance iii
our great struggle tor independence. Ou
my arrival here 1 heard thai there was
such an organization as the order of the
"Sons of Liberty" in the Northern
States, aud my hist effort was to team its
strength, ils principles and its objects,
aud, if possible, to put myself in com
inunicalior. wilh ils leading spirits. This
was effected without much difficulty or
delay. I was received among them with
cordiality, aud the greatest confidence at
once extended lo mo. The number ol
its member was large, but not so great
as Mr. Holt, in his official report, repre
sented it to be. Ils principles were that
the Government was based on the con
sent ot the parlies to it ; that the Slates
were the parlies, aud were sovereign;
that there was uo authority iu the Gen
eral Government to coerce a seceeding
State. The resolutions of 1708 aud 17lll
were set forth as presenting ibe true
theory of the Government, its organi
sation was essentially military ; it had
its commanders of divisions, ot brigades,
of regiments, of companies. In the
month of Juue last, tho universal feeling
among its members, leaders and privates
was that it was useless to hold a Presi
dential election ; Lincoln had the power,
aud would certainly re-elect himself, and
there was no hope but in force. The
belief waa outrtained and fraely ex
pressed that by a. bold, vigorous and I
concerted movement, the three great
is orth-western Males ot Illinois, Indiana
and Ohio could be seiz. d and held. This
being done, the Slates of Kentucky and
Missouri could easily be lilted from their
prostrate condition, and placed on their
leet, aud this in hixly days would end
tho war. While everything was moving
ou smoothly to a supposed successful
coiisuiuuiai ion, the first interruption in
i he calculation was thu postponement of
the meeting of the Democratic Conven
tion from the fourth of July to the 29th
of August; but preparations tjll went
on, aud in one ot the Stales I lie 2nh ot
July was fix'-d as the day for a move
ment, liut before tho day ai'iived, a
general Council ot the Order from differ
ent Slates was called, and it was thought
the movement ou the 2oth of July would
be too premature, and the l'illiof August
was fixed upon for a general uprising.
This postponement was insisted upon
the ground that il was nccessay to have
a series of public meetings to prepare the
public rnind, and appointments tor pub
lic peace met tings were made one at
Pemia, one at hpringfitld, and one at
Chicago on the ltilh. The first one was
at Peoria, aud, lo make it a success, 1
agreed that so much money as was neces
sary would be furnished by me. It was
hehf-, aud was a decided success. The
vast multitude who attended seemed to
bfe swayed by but one leading idea
peace. The 1 1 iends were encouraged and
sticiigthed, and seemed anxious for the
day when they would do something to
tmnteli them to lite great goal of peace.
About this time that correspondence
between our friends aud Horace Greeley
made its appearance. Lincoln's mani
festo shocked the country. The belief,
in some way, prevailed over the North
that the South would agree to a recon
struction, and the politicians, especially
the leading ones, conceived the idea that
o:i such an issue Lincoln could be beaten
at the ballott box ; at all efents, they
argued that a trial of the ballot box
should be made before a resort to force,
always a dernier resort. The Springfield
meeting came off, but it was apparent
that the tire exhibited at Peoria had
already diininiahed. The tone of the
speakers was that the people must rely
on the b.llot box tor redress and griev
ance; thu nerves of the leaders of the
order began to relax. About this time
a large lot of arms were purchased aud
sent to Indianapolis, which wad discov
ered and some of the, leading men were
charged with the di sign to arm the mem
bers ot the oidi-r for treasonable pur
poses. Treachery shadowed itself at
LouWvllie. Jud:e Rulliuand Dr. Kal-
fus were arrested and sent to Memphis.
The day on which the great movement
was to bo made became known to Mr.
McDonald, candidate for Governor of
Indiana, and believ in'r that it would mar
iiis prospects for election unless prevent
ed, ho threatened to expose all the par
ties enngaged unless the project was
abandoned. Thus t!iu day passed bv
ind nothing waa done. The Chicatro
Convention came, the crowd was im
mense,, the leeling was unanimous for
peace, a general impression prevailed
that a reconstruction could be had and
that it was necessary to so far pander to
the military feeling as to take Gen. Me
Clellan to secure a certain success. This
nomination, followed as it was. hv divers
lisclosures'itnd arrests of persons, prom
inent, members, lotaity demoralized tho
'Sons of Liber y." The feeling with
the masses is as strong as ever they
are true, brave, and I believe willing and
leady but they have no leaders. The
vigilance of the Administration, its
large detective force, the large bounties
paid for treachery kit J the respectable
men w ho have yielded to the temptation,
added lo the huge military force station
ed in those States, make organization
and prep-iralion almost an impossibility.
A large sum of money has been expend
ed iu iosieriug and furthering th se ope
rations, aud now it seems to have been
to litlld profit. Rut in rjviewing the
past I do not see it cjuld haye been
avoided, uor has it been spent altogether
in vain. Tue apprehensions of tiie ene
my have caused him to bring back and
keep from the field in front, ai least GO,-
000 to watch and browbeat the piole
at home. lu this view of the subject,
the same amouut of money has effected
so much in uo other quarter since the
commencement of the war. In July last,
Capt. Chas. II. Cole, of Gen. Forest's
command, made his escape from prison.
He represented lo me that be had been
appointed a lieutenant in our navy; I
seui him around the lakes, wilb instruc
tions, to go us a lower deck passenger,
to lauiiliarize himself wilb all the ciian
uels and different approaches to tho sev
eral harbors, the strength of each place,
ihe depositaries of coal, and especially
to learu all that he cotMd about the war
steamer Michigan, aud devise some plan
tor her capture or destruction. This du
ty he performed very satisfactorily. He
was then instructed' to return and put
himself iu communication wilh the offi
cers ot the Michigan, and, feeling his
way, to endeavor to purchase the boat
Irom ils officers. For a lime be thought
he would succeed iu this it he could
give the guarantees of payment of the
sums stipulated, but by degrees, tbe
question was dropped, and he asked per
mission to organize a force, hoard and
take her. This was given, aud Acting
Master John Y. Reall sent him to
aid in the organization and carrying out
the enterprise. Their plan was well
conceived and held out the promise of
success. It had been previously ascer
tained from escaped prisoners from John
son's Island that an organization existed
among the prisoners on th island, tor
1 he purpose of surprising the guard and
capturing the island. The presence of
the steamer Michigan, which carried
fourteen guns, was the only obstacle. Se
cret communications were bad by which
they were advised that ou the nigh tif
the 10 ot September, an attempt to siece
the Michigan would be made. On that
night, Captain Cole, who had previously
established the friendliest relations with
the officers of the steamer, waa to have
a wiue-drinking , with them on board,
and at a given hour Acting Mauler Beall
was to appear on a boat to be obtained
for that purpose, with a sufficient body
ot ionlederaio soldiers to board and
take the stenmer. Should they captura
the s' amer, a cannon shot sent through
i he t dicers' quarters on Johnson's island
wa to signify to the prisoners that the
hour fo;' their release had come. Should
they lake the is'and, boats were to be
improv ied and Sandusky was to be at
tacked ; if taken, tho prisoners were to
be mounted, and make tor Cleveland, tbe
boats co-opei aiing, and from Cleveland
the prisoners were to make Wheeling,
and thence to Virginia. The key to the
whole movement was the capture of the
Michigan. On the evening of the 19th,
by some treachery, Cole was arrested,
and the messenger who was to meet
Acting Master JJeall at Kelly's Island
did not reacti him. Disappointed but
nothing daunted, Acting Master Real),
having possession of the Philo Parsons,
passenger steamer from Detroit to San
dusky, went on his way towards John
son's Island. Having landed at Middle
liass. Island to secure a supply of wood,
the steamer Island Queen, wilh a large
number of passengers and thirty-two
soldiers, came up along side and lashed
herself to the Parsons. An attack was
at once resolved upon. The passengers
and soldiers w ere soon madecprisoners,
and the boat delivered to our men. lue
soldiers were regularly paroled, the pass
engers were lell oti the island, having
given their promise not to leave for
twenty-four- hours, and the boat was
towed out into the lake and snnk. The
Parsons was then steered directly for
the Hay of Sandusky. Here the men,
froni certain reasons not altogether sat
isfactory, but possible fortunately, refus
ed to make the attack on the Michigan,
tteall relumed, lar.ded at Sand witch, C,
W., and ihe men scattered throngh tho
country. Most of them have returned
lo the Confederate States; but a few
days since, Acting Master Bennet G.
Hurley was arreoted and the trial is now"
going on for his delivery under the Ex
tradition treaty. It we had Cole's, Beall's,
or his own commission, I should not fear
the result; as it is, they will have to
prove that they acted nuder my order,
aud that will in all probability secure his
release, but it may lead to my expulsion
from the Provinces,, at least, I have it
from a reliable source that this last prop
osition has been pressed upon tbe Cana
dian authorities, and they have consider
ed it. I should prefer, if it be possible,
to have your views on the subject Capt.
Cole is slill a prisoner on Johnson's Is
land. In obedience to your suggestion,
as far as it was practicable, soon after
my arrival here I urged the people in tho
North to convert their paper money in
to gold and withdraw it from the mar
ket. I am satisfied this policy waa
adopted and carried into effect
to some extent, bat how extensively
I am unable to state. What effect it
had on jthe gold market it is impossible
to estimate, but certain it is that gold
continued to appreciate until it went to
290. The high price may have tempted
many to change their policy, because af
terward gold tell in the market to 150.
When it was about ISO, and exportation
of gold wa9 so small that there appeared
to be but little or no demand for it, Mr.
John Porterfield, formerly a banker in
Nashville, but now a resident in Mon
treal, whs furnished with $100,000 and
instructed to proceed to-New York to
carry out a financial policy of his own
conception, which consisted iu the pur
chase of gold and exporting the same
selling it for sterling bills of exchange,
and then again converting his exchange
into gold. This process involved a cer
tain loss, the cost of transhipment. He
was instructed by Mr. Clay and myself
to go ou with his policy until he had ex
pended $i'5,noo, with which he supposed
he would sliip directly $5,000,000, and
induce others to hip much m ire, and .
then, if the effect upon tho gold market
was not very perceptible, he was to re
turn to Canada restore the money unex-'
pentled ; by last report he had caused the
shipment of more than two millions of
gold at an expense of Jess than 110,000;
but it seems that a Mr. Lyons, who had
been a former partner of Porterfield, was
arrested by G.-n. Rutler on the ground
that he was exporting gold, and al
though Mr. Lyon had no connection
with Mr. Porterfield in this transaction,
yet he thought il prudent to return to
Canada, and, while he retains the unex
pended balance of the tf 25,000 to carry
out his instructions, and has restored
75,000. I must confess that the first
shipment bad a marked effect npon the
market. I am inclined to the opinion
that his theory will work great damage
and distrust to the Federal finances if
vigorously followed up, and if no unto
ward circumstances should interfere
with the operation. .Soon after I reach
ed Canada a Mr. Minor visited me and
represented himself as an accredited
agent from the Confederate States to
destroy steamboats on tbe Mississippi
River, aud that his operations were sus
pended for want of means. I advanced
to him $2,000 in Federal currency, and
soon afterward several boats were burn
ed at St. Lo.iis, iuvolviug an immense
loss ot property to the euemy. He be
came suspected, as be represented to me,
of being the author of this burning, and
from that time both he aud his men have
been hiding,' and consequently bave
done nothing. Money has been advanc
ed to Mr. Churchill, of Cincinnati, lo or
ganize a eorps for the purpose of incen
diarism in that city. I consider him a
true man, aud although as yet he bas ef-
fueled but lilt l, I am in constant expee
ation of hearing of effective work in
Previous to the arrival of Lieutenant
Colonel Marlin and Lieutenant Headly,
