They both held their landt under New Hampahirr, and of turjtc loih were remly to defend them j ginit the claim of New York. Their dealing for tc eral yr had been ex ienMe, and they were on very friendly term; but in the. summer of 17X.", ihey dinagrccd respecting some of their transactions, and got into a very warm contention. Hart at this time, had a ttote against Williams fur 500, which Williams refufed to pay, nnd a there was no other mode of collecting it, Hart went to Albany, obtained a writ c the note, put it into the hands of ih .Sheriff's Deputy, who with the as lUtanee of Hart and sonio others look Williams in (he fore-part of a rainy night and started for Albany. An a Urm was Immediately given, nnd the wittered settlers in Dandy and Tin wouth were xm in pursuit of the Ywkcrs, and they were so alert that tier overtook them in White Creek, now Salem. The ShcrifT and his as tUunts escaped, but they took Hart in tie afternoon of the same day, brought Uai hack to Gaie'ii tavern in Dandy, k"-re the Committee of Safety was Mstmbltd, aud without Iom of lime, lisn was Arraigned, convicted, senten ced to be -whipped 39 stripes with Ih hc h irn--.nd as this was tho first panuhtuent of the kind I had ever seen itfiictcd, it appeared to nie it was dono 'Uti the not cruel tcventy. lois is ortliy of notice as being the only trans- tiya of the kiwi after tho commence- Bnt of the Revolutionary War, and 'be hut case in which a Committee of 5frtj tfied to exercise their judicial fwctioni in the trial or rather convic ts of a Yorker."

The place trial, Gate's tavern, was where the W lUrton Ilromely, of Danby, died, tfeut a mile acd a half North of Daa dy Corner.

II. H. THE WIFE OF KOSSUTH At the time when all was lost to ihej Hungarians and fach had to seek his own safety in flight, Gov. Kossuth and his lady, who accompanied her husband throughout the war, thotignt ii oesi to seperntc, in order that one of them, if possible, might save their lives, for the ake of their children, who had been left under the protection of theirgrand mother. The governor determined to remain with his brave officers, still with him, and to bhare their fate. Madam K. informed her husband, and a female friend the wife of an officer, where she would endeavor to seek safely, and as every moment was precious clothed herself as a beccari this lady her bus-1 band gave her his signet ring, and tlie ccnl of tho government oi Hungary, that they might bo a passport for her, in ii,- nvmit r.f nirotintf with those who ....,..(...., IK. in dm lr miisp.

The road had now be come almost impassable, narrow und slippery on (he sides of the mountains ; one false step would lim e plunged them into an almost bottomless abyss; but the gallows in their rear, and their husband before them, hope gave them courage, and onward they went. Wo know not what length of time they occupied in their journey ; but, ns it was in winter, and they had often lo conceal themselves in clefts of rocks and overhanging mountains from scouts of the enemy, it mint hae been a long and wcaiy one, and when discovered, they pa.-sed for beggars, nnd asked for bread from their blood-thirsty foes, They ultimately reached the town of Relgrnde, where they expected to find their husbands, nnd a termination of their sufferings. Imagine, then, their feelings of disappointment, when they leurned that not a Hungarian was there nil had removed to Shumla. What was now to be done ? They were , worne out, and could proceed no father. Hope even had Ibn-nken them. They I decided to throw themselves upon the humanity of the Sardinian Consul. They knocked nt the door, which was opened by the Consul hirmclf. Two beggar women stood before him, the picture of misery nnd woe. He asked them what they wanted. They an swered, ''.food nnd shelter." Ho re quested them to come in. Then the officer's lady introduced him to Madam Kossuth, wife of the President of Hun gary. He did not believe it,till she took from her bosom the signet ring nnd seal of the government of Hungary.

Yeiily, it needs no ghost to tell us thai. Everything is 'rubied' w I10 'he locomotive principle. Jv vun nrace-iiorsu speed no longer sans ' fies : wMli'intr fchort of a hich-pressurc !. . , steam-engine velocity will answer. What was once a Jehu-like hurry, is now considered n snail's progrcs, nnd men turn away from buy, dragging railway lines that travel only twenty I miles an hour, with perfect disgust. A man who can content himself to travel nt all in a stage-coach, is considered a miraclo of patience a phenomenon more inexplicable than tho dogged im perturbability of Job. The wholo hu man family has caught the steam-inn-nin, and nre kept continually on tho jump. Every day the pace is increas ing, (ill it has become too frightful for 'old folks' to live. They are left in the background by the helter-skelter, neck-or-nothing steeple-chase of the 'rising generation,' nnd find themselves per fectly bewildered by tho hurry-scurry with which scenes and scenes and events sweep , by. 'Go ahead!' 'put it through'---'hur- ry up tli cakes ! arc tho rnottos of ine unius No matter how well or ill t substantially or flimisily n work is done, if vou onlv 'push along, keep mo- vine-' 'It were well done, if done o ... . ciuioklr.'

This is a go hcad age, and it is preposterous to suppose that millions of human beings are to be kept crawling along at snail's pace on life's thoroughfare only that a few hundreds may travel in safety.

Wni.I.IN CTON AN1 HIS WATKIILOO lliii'.r.ciies. The privnte circles of the London aristocracy have been enliven ed recently by the narative of a very comical ull'air which is said to have been enacted by the Duke of Welling toiijtlio Ilishop of London, and Mrs, Loudon, the authoress. It is certainly one of the richest things of the kind we ever remember reading, and give it below in the shipe in which it has crept into the London papers : " A remarkable story has been in circulation in private circles for some days past, which, we think, is too good to be lost to the 'general public,' par ticularly as it numbers among its uiia mahs l'KiisOMi: no less personages than Field Marshall his Grace the Commander-in-Chief, the Metropolitan Bishop, and an accomplished author ess. It is only necessary to mention the name of Mrs. London, to recall to the readers memory, the clever writings of that lady, on horticulture. Shu was lately in the neighborhood of Strath licldsayc, and being anxious to visit spots remarkable for fine specimens of tlie vegetable world, she wrote to the Duke, conveying her desire to sec some 'beeches,' for which the gardens of his Grace were celebrated. The letter was duly delivered, and the dude, rais ing his glasses and glancing nt the con tents, his eye caught hastily the signa ture of the note, 'C. J. Loudon,' and ho at once came to the conclusion that it ciinu from Charles James, Ilishop of London, more particularly as the hand writing bore a closet resemblance to that of thu Right Rev. prelate. Uut whilst there wa nothing remarkable in the fact of a note from the bishop, the ob ject of it did raise his Grace's most es pecial wonder, for that same rapid glance which had converted an amiable lady into a bishop, metamorphosed the majestic beeches of Stralhlieldsaye into the nether garments of their illustrious owner; in fact the note run thus" that 'C. J. Ijudon' (the ordinary laconic the Duke looked as he eyed the note, is not our nrovincu to picture, but with rt,m' ,l,!U his ii'tial despatch, nnd lliiukin tic rcouesl applied to tho Waterloo in exprcfsibles, and that they might be uaiikd for artistic purposes, he direct ed his valet to look out the article, and forward it in a polite form to bis lord ship. " ihc p and the amazement I bite receive! , t. t I elhngton i ler (o breeches." may possibly be con- changed into the painful, as the idea Hashed through the mind of the bishop that all was not "quite right will; trie great veto doubt his veterean, ami to solve the painful uouui ms lorosmp eiancu o io i..

Thu gcnetal faith in sriencu a a wonder-woiker, is nt nreent unlimited; and with it thctc is cheriihed ihc con viction that every discovery and in en lion admits of a p'actical application lo the welfare of men. Is a new vegeta ble product brought lo this country from abroad, or a new chemical com pound discovered, or an anatomical physical phenomena recorded, thu ques tion i immediately asked, cui Into? What is it good for. Is foed or diiuk lo be got out of it? Will it make hats or shoes, or cover umbrellas ? Will it kill or he.il ? Will it drive a steam engine or will it niako a mill go ? And truly this rut bono question has of Life been so satisfactorily answered that we cnnimt wonder (hat thu public should per.,it in pulling it somewhat eagerly to every dUcoerer nnd imentor, nnd should believe that if a substance has one valuable application, it will prove if further investigated lo have a thou sand, Gutla percha has not been known in this country ten years, and already it would be more dillicult to sny what impose it has not been applied than lo enumerate those to which it has been npplied. Gun cotton had not pioved in the saddest way its power lo kill, be fore certain ingenious Americans show ed that it has a remarkable power of healing, and forms the best sticking plaster for wounds. Surgeons have not employed ether and chloroform :inie thetias for three years ; and already an ether steam engine is at work in Lyons and a chloroform engine in London. Of other sciences we need scarcely speak. Chemistry has long come down from her atomiu altitudes and electric affinities, aud scours and dyrs, bakes, brews, cooks aud compounds drug, with contented composure. Electricity leaves her thunderbolt in the sky, like Mercury dismissed from Olympus, acts a letter carrier and messenger boy. Even the mysterious magnetism, which once seemed :i living principle to quiver in thu compass needle, is unclothed of mystery, und set to driving turning lathes. The public perceives nil this, and has unlimited faith in men's power to conquer nature. The credulity which formerly fed upon unicorns, phumixes, mermaids, vampires, krakens, pestilen tial comets, fairies, gliosis, witches, spec tres, charms, curses, universal reme dies, pactions with Satan, nnd the like, now tampers with chemistry, electricity nnd magnetism, as it once did with the invisible world.
