What lucky fellow you arc ecry thing prospers with you ' Why yea,' replied his friend complacently ; 'I have nothing to complain of my affairs are every thing I could wih.' 'Your store is filled with hundreds of thousands worth of jroods your new house is completely fur nished in tho most costly manner, and to-nighl you will chooic the chofen one of your hoatt ' Yes, it is true, and 1 inh all my friends were as well uflf as myself.' George alghed 'Oh, that I were as lucky ai you. Hut I am one of the most unfottunato fol lows alive. F.very thing goes against rro I have been unlucky in business and in love, Tim sordid mother of my Julia, not only refuses her sanction to my attachment to her daughter, hut is uting ev ery endeavor to force her into marriage with that old Kclford, bocausc tic ii rich.' 'Well, well ! keep up your spirits, my poor George. They say fortune wheel is always turn ing, and if you aro at tho bottom, you arc sure when it moves, to go to the top while at every change I must be plunged the deeper. 'I'crhip o bur, good morning.

Julia nnaaeancd a yielding, timid disposition, and had not courage to j withstand her mother s arbitrary will, but accepted tbe altin'ions of the rich Holford, although dctoted Ij attached to young Rutsen. At nine, the company begin to aatomble, and ' too! the rouma were graced with a select few of the fashion and beauty of the city. I he supper uas pronounced complete, aihI hilarity and happi Mom teigned in the hernia of nil. During a tem porary lull in the eonteratioti at table, tho alarm oz toll of the firn hells was beard ; at the same time the window cro ahakou by a violent gust of wind. J 'What a terrible night for fire!' said Julia. ! pily tho poor creature who shall he turned out in this cold weather.' 'Come, come, cousin,' said Augustus gaily, 'away with such chilling imaces. Here, take some chani paigne. No onu must mar my wedding fuasl with such gloomy anticipations, lcl the world gn as it will, we will be happy here,' T.ils sentiment found universal Approbation, and glastx wore filled lo thn happiness of the bride and groom. At that moment, Iho dour opened, and a young man entered, who touched the shoulder of tho groom, nnd retreating to tho end of the room, beckoned him to follow. Granger, astonished at the Interruption, would have refused, but there was something bo appalling in tho pale face and disor dered drc6S of tho young man whum ho recognized ns his head clerk, that hu nrosc and was soon enga ged in a low, hut animated conversation. In a few moments aftor, hu beckoned lo Sclfurd and Rutsen, a Iio immediately left thu room in great haste, lly degrees, all the goiitlemen had gathered in a group. Something extremely ngitating eccmcd lo be going forward, and the cheek uf the bride blanched. A stillnct-'s roigncd over the table which had so lately echoed to their gnyely. Tho tolling of the bells, and tumult in the street became louder. Thcgen llcmcn had nearly all left the ruom, when tho door again opened, and one of them returned. 'Come, Granger,' said he, 'you havo not a mo ment lo lose, if you would save your papers. Half the town is on fire! Ho dreadful a sight I have never seen where it will end, heaven only knows.' Agustus approached the bride. His mouth quiv ered with emotion, but hu struggled for composure. 'My love, I must leaic you, even on my bridal night, if I would save you Irom ruin my all is nt slake ! Hut keep up your courage, and I hope to return ero long.' 'Ho oon o part 1' ha exclaimed, ami for a mo ment thu head of the brido sank on her husband's shoulder, hut raising herself, she added, 'Away, dearest! you will find mo worthy of you; whatever happens I will hear it with fortitude. ' He sprung from the room followed by the re maindcr of the gentlemen, nnd the bride sat eur rounded by her Iriends, hour after hour awaiting their return. At last, one of the guests arrived. His accounts of the tremendous conflagration, and destruction of valuable, goods trodden under foot, nadu them sick at heart 'Thank heaven,' he mid, 'my store is out of dan ger. If it were not, I should be n poor man, in deed, it is filled with valuable good, but I have locked it up, and have hero Iho key.' He had scarcely finished when a servant opened the door followed by a gentleman Mr Allcrtnn, he observed, 'I am commissioned by Iho Mayor to re quest the key of your store, for the purpose of blow in? it up, as tha'. is tho only means which can be used to stop the raging clement, which is devour ing the city. Fngines arc of no use, tho hose lays like a frozen serpent upon the ground. Mr Allerton gazed a few moments on his wife and daughters; but the next, handed the key to the gentleman: 'It is for thu good of the community, All I am worth in the world is in that store,' he said. 'Sir vou act an a Christian, and doubtless will receive your reward.' Come wife, come girls,' continued Mr Allcrlon, when tho gentleman had departed, 'let us go and tako one more look ot our home heaven only knows ho iv long it will bo ours. The carriages of the other guests soon after ar riving they all depurted, and left Julia and Caroline alone. Midnight had panned, atid fur two dreary hour after they wandered from window lo window in hopes of teeing Mr (iranger return. Hut it seemed to them as if the world wa on fire, and tlioy were alone left to rlrugglo with the devouring ele ment. The heavens were illumined. Lurid clouds loidcd with flakes of fire were passing incessantly over the city, while vast masses of names were springing up to the heat ens, and goods were piled in the street, and cunfucion reigned over all. Oc casionally an explosion shook thn house to its ecu tre, and tent them trembling to each olhor's arms Two more hours passed ovoi; Carol. neat last heard her hunband loot. He entered but oh how dif ferent from tho ol-.-ganlly dressed, iho confident and happy bridegroom ol the eienitc ! 'My poor Augustus!' exclaimed Caroline throw ing her arms around his neck. He heoded her nut, but stood gazing into the fire, an image of calm dcaftiir. 'Caroline,' he raid in a low and lad tone, '1 am i a ruined man: 1 our hours ago I was worth half a million ; now, not a cent. My fine store and rch good arc reduced to ashes, and the men who owed me are involved in the wide destruction; and what is worse, I have rumod you.

Julia clasped her ban lo and a jr'ow of pleasure almost parsed over her cheek, '.lias, poor man " she exclaimed, checking herself 'I nm sorry for him.

Concluded. On the 5th of October, ho fought the glorious and mcrnornbln battle of tho Thames, which drove the enemy from the North Western Territory, nnd gnvo security, to tho inhabitant of the western frontiers. The Hritish and Indians under thu com mand of Gen. l'roclor and Teciimseh, had taken up a strong position between tho River Thames on oneiide and a swamp on the other a beach for est lay in front between thu swamp nnd the river of about 200 yards in width. Inn few minutes Gon. Harrison urranged tho order of battlo, nnd by a manmuvru never beforu tried, runted tho Hritisli by chniging them through the centre of the lines, with his mounted riflemen; Gen, Trotter's brigade of 000 in"n formed tho front line, his right upon the centre and his left upon the swamp. General King's brigade, a second line 100 yards in the lent of Trotter; nnd Gen. Chiles' a corps of reserve in the rear of it. These brigades wore put under the command of Gen. Henry. Gen, Dosha' divi don was formed between Gen. Tro'tor and the River Thames. Hu then directed Col. Johnson' regiment of mounted riflmeii to bo formed in front of all, in two lines opposite the enemy, and upon th advance of the infantry, to take ground to the left, and forming upon the flunk, to undoavor to turn the right of tho Indians. A moment's reflec tion convinced Gen. Harruon, that from thu thick ness uf the woods.and the swampiness of tho ground they would be rendered useless on horseback. There was uo tunc to dismount and place their horses in security. Ho therefore determined lo break the Hritish lines, at trice by a charge of the mounted inlantry. Tho measure was not sanction ed by any precedent : but knowing tho character of tho backwoodsmen, and that a musket or rifle was no impediment lo them on horseback, ho was ursuaded that the enemy would be quite unpro pared for tho shock, and could nut rcsitt it. He, thtrefore.directed that the mounted rogimefit should be drawn up in c!oee cliinin, tnd chargu, with rules, at full Mcd, upon the enemy as noon as they had delivered ihoir first tire. The venerable Gov. Shelby,nl the age of nxty-ix, was posted to com mand the wing near the river, while Gen Harrituu placed himself at tho head ofthe front line of the infantry to direct the movement ofthe cavalry and give them tho neccmrv support, Comrnoduro l'crry, tho horo of L. Kne, arid Hng. Gen. Casr, now secretary of Yai, volunteered s Ald-du-Csmpa to Gen, Harrison and twitted him in the execution of hu orders. The army had moved on in this way bu'. a short distance, when the mounted men received the fire ofthe Hntuh line, and were or- dered to charge. The horse in front recoiled at the fire ofthe enemy. Another fire came from the Hntuh line. The whole Ainencan column moved viferoualv lo the attack the mounted ri. flemen charged with impel uoai'y, arid in a moment j the American column bri-kc through the enemy mlh urorriVie (.'rep.

Considering the militia tho only real republican defence uf tho nation agiinst fore ign invasion and domcsti: insurrection, ho advanc ed a plan of encouragement calculated to rniso this right urm of national strength in public cstnnMion. Upon tho noiv oftho death uf the brave Kosciusko, the companion of Washington in the revolution nnd tho hero who fell covered with woundsor Polish liberty, ho offered a resolution of respect to hi memory, oih! supported hi r-?-olntioii in n heauliful uml classical speccli, which is recorded in Nilcs Register for 1817, nnd which does great credit lo him ns a speaker. At the end ol'hin congressional term ho declined a re-election, and rotiicd again lo his firm. Hut in 13-2 ho was elected to represent tho State of Ohio in Iho Semite of the U. States, uml continued in that body until 1828, where he fully sustained Iih high rcpulattmi. Coming into Congress at the close of tho wur and continuing, either in the Housu or tho Svualu, about eight years, he assi-led to bring tho country into ri train of measure which restored tho finance, which had become distracted during the contest with Great HritiHii, built up our domestic ii.dustry, and com menced thnt system of internal improvement which has in so short a period changed tho very faco of our country. In 1628 nnd 1820 ho represented the country as minister to the Republic of Columbia, anil by bis glowing representations of the happy effects ot'our free institution upon our prosperity, and thu warn ing voice which hu raised against military despo tism, gioatly contributed to urrcst thu plans ot Luroperin Ixgitimatcs lo convert the South America Republics into Monarchies. Altliooi'h himself successful General, no man ever had a greater aversion to a despotic milnoiy desnolism. lie wa minister to Columbia, ut the time HolivarV parlizans were trying to invest him with absolute power. He wrote a letter lo llie Liberator, on hi departure from tho country filled with rnmonstrinces, and warning him of the con sequences, which is almost unrivaled for its elo quence, lofty patriotism, and sound republican doc trines.
