Tlic BJuck Ilorsc and liis Ridcr, on, "WHO WAS THE IIERO OF SARA TOGA." It was thc Sevettlli of Octobcr, 1777. IJornlio (Jnles stood bcforc IiieIciiI gnzing slcnilfastly tipon tlic two nrmies, now arrnyed iu order of a bnttle. It was n clcar brncing day, mclluw with thc riclmcss of Autiimn, tlic slcy was cloud lcas, tlic folinff o of tlic woods scnrce ling cd with purplo andgold; tho buckwlical on yonder ficlds frostcd iiito suowy ripc ucss. It was a culm, clcar day, but thc trcad of lcgions shook tho ground. rrom cvery bush shot thc glimincr of the riflc barre, on cvery hillsidc blazcd thc sharpcncd bayonct. Flags wcre thcrc, too, tossing in thc brce7n; hurc thc Bamier of thc Stars yoiidcr, tho lled Cioss gonfalon. Ilcrc in solid lines werc arrnyed the Contincntnl soldicrs, piiusing on tlieir arms, tlieir homcly costumc looking but poor and liumble, whcn coinpared with tho hlazc of bcarlct unifornis reddcning along yonder liills and ovcr tlio distunt fields. Ai, that huntiiig Eliirt of blue was but a rnde drcss, yct on ihe 10th of Sep tcmber, scarco two wecks ngo on tlicse vcry liills, ittatight tlic scarlet-coalcd Bri lon n severo lesstm of rcpontanco and liuinilily. Ilcrc, then, on thc moriiing of this cvcntful day, nas lodecido tlic fatc of Aincricn, whcllicr Gatcs should flcc bc forc Burgoync, or Hurgoync lay dowti his urms ut tho fcet of Gatcs, hcrc at tho door ofhis tent Etood thc Ameiican Gcncral, his couiitcnancc manifcstiiig a decp anxio- Now he gazod upon thc glittering ar ray of Burgoync, as it shono over yonder fields, and now his oyo rovcd ncvcr thojc hardy iueii iu hunting shirts, with riflcs in tlieir hands. Ile reinembcrcd the con test oflhc 10th, when Ijcnodict Arnold, at tho hcad ol certnin bold riflcnicn, cnr ried thc day, boforc all the glittcr of llrit ish alIns, and now perclianco a fcar scizcd him, thnt this 7lh of Octobcr might uy a uark day, lor Arnold was not llicrc. They had quarrelled, Arnold and Gates, about somc miliary courtcsy; thc foruier was now without a commission; the lattcr commandcd. alono. nnd now would havo to win L'lorv for himsclf with his owu hands. Gatcs was sad and thoughtful, as in all tho array of his uniform hc .stood bcforc his lcnt. watchins tlic cvolutiona of the ar- mics, but all at oncc a sinoke arosc, a thundcr shouk tho ground, a chorus of sliouts and groans yellcd along the darken ed air. Tho play of death was begun. Tho two flac;s this of Stars, that of thc llcd Cross tosscd annd tlio sinoke of battlo, whilo thc slty wus cloudcd in leadcn folds, and tho carth tlirobbcd as wilh tho pulsation of a rnigbty heart. Suddcnly, Gatcs and his olliccrs startcd with surprisc. Along thc gcnllc hcight on which thcy stood, there camc a wur rior on a 13lack Ilorse, rushing toward tho distant bttltlo. Thero was sometliing in thc npiiearanco of this liorso and ridcr, to striko theni with surprise. Thc horso was a noble animal; do you mark that cxpansc of cbcst, thoso slenderyet sincwy limbs, that waving nianc and tail? Do you mark tlic liead crcct, thoso nostrils qtiiveriiiK, that cyc glaring with tcrriblo (ight? Then his color thc raven is not darkerthan his skiu, or a inaidcu's chcck morc glossy than his spotlcss hidc. Loolc upon that gallant stccd, and rc nicmbcr the words ofJob IJasl tliou jjivcn tho horso streimth? Iiasl tliou clothcd lus neck with thuuder? Cans't thou nmkc him afraid asacrass- hoppcr. Tlic glory of his nostrils is tcr- rible! Ile paweth in tho valley. and rcioiceth in his streiigth; hc gooth on to incct the armcd incn. Hc niockcth at fear and is not afiVii'ht- cd; ncithcr turncth hc back from thc sword. Tho quivcr rattlcth agaiust him, thc glittering rpcur aud the bliicld. He swallowelh tlic ground with fior- cciinss and ra'e; ncithcr bclicvetli hc that it is thc souml of tlic trumpct. IIo sailh ainntig the trumpcts, Ila! ha! and iic smcllcth the baltlc afar off, thc thuuder ol'Uie caplaius and thc shouting. Uul the ridcr prcscuts also a sil'Iu ol strauge aud pcculiar forin, wilh a dark brow gathercd in a Irown, a dnrlter oye, shootiii" its glance from bcncatli the pro- jecting forcheud. J I is lip is compresscd lus cravat, unlooscucil, cxposcs thc voius of his bared throat, now writhing likc scrpcniH. It is plaiu that his spiril is with thc distant baltlc, fur ncithcr look ing to thc riglit or left, not even casting a glatico nside lo Gatcs, hc glarcs ovcr his horso 's hcad toward the sinoke of con flict. No sword waves in his gras), but whilc tho rein hangs on his horse's neck, lus hands rcst by his sido, tho fingcrs quivcr ing with thesamc agitation that blazes ovcr his facc. Altogethcr it is a inagnificent sight, that warrior iu tho blue iiiiifonn on lus Black llorsc, who moves along thu sod at a brisk pace, his tail aud uiano tossing on thc brcczc. Aud as tho uoble borse movcs on, thcsoldicr spcaks to him, and culls him by namc, and lays his righl hand on his glossy neck. "IIo! Warren forivard!" Then that Black Horso natned nftcr tho fricnd of thc soldicr, a friend who now is slccpiug uc ii r Bunkcr Ilill, wlicro lio foll dnrts forwurd, with ouc stiddcn bound, nnd is gono likc a flash toward the distant battlc. This bricl scenc, this vision of thc borse and his ridcr, struck Gatcs with unfcigned clingrin, and his officcrs with uuuiinglcd surprisc. "Annstroiig!" shouted Gatcs, turning to a brave man by his sidc, "I'ursuo that niau! Tcll him it is my cointuaud that hc rclurns from thc ficld. Awuy! Do not losc a minuic, for hc uill do soineth mg rash if left to himself!" Annstroiig springs to his slccd, nnd w'hile thc bcaven abovc, and tho broad swecps of woods and fields yonder nrc darkcned by tho sinoke ol coiiHictlic pursucs thc black horso and his rider. Uul that rider looks ovcr his shouldcrs with a smilo of scoru on his lip, a scowl of dcfiance on his brow. Look! Ile drawshis sword thc sbarp bladc quivers in the air. Ile poinls to thc battlc, nnd lo! lio is gono gonc llirough yonder clouds whilo his sliouts echoo over thc fields. Wherevor tlic fight is thickcst, throtigh thc intervals of battlc sinoke and caniion glarc.you tnaysee, riding madly forward, that slrango soldicr, mounlcd oii his stced black as dcalh, Look al him, as with his facc red wilh British blood, hp wavor his sword, and sliouts to tiio legions. Now you scc him fighting in that catinon's glare, the ncxt moincnt hc is away ofl'yonder, lcudiiig thc forlorn hope up tho stecp clifi'. Is it uol a inagnificent sight, to scc that namclss soldicr, and that noblo black stccd, thisliing likc a mcleor llirough thc long coltimtis of battlc. And all tlie whilo, Major Armstrong, spurring his stccd lo llio utuiost, pttrsues biin, bulinvain. IIo sliouis to him, but thc wiirior canhot' hcar. IIo can scc thc black horso through tho lifted folds of battlc smokc, now and then hc hcarsthc ridcr'a shout: "Warren! IIo! Warren! Upon llicm chargc!" Lct us look in for a inomciit though tlicse clouds of battlo. Here, ovcr this thick hcdgc, burnts a band of Amorican inililia mcn tlieir rudo farmcr's coats staincd with thcir blood whilo, scattcr ing tlieir arms by tlic wuy, thoy llcc bc- foro yonder company ofrcd-roat hirelings, who conic rushing forward, thcir solid front of bayoncts glcaming in tho battlc- Hght. Iu llio momcnt of llioir flight, a Black Ilorse crashcs ovci llic fiold. Tlio un known warrior rcins lus stccd back on his hnuiichcs, righl in thc path of this broad- sliouldercd imlitia niau. "Now, coward, advanco anothcr slep, and I wi!l slioot you to the heart!" shouls ihe ridcr, c.xtending a pislol in cithcr hand. 'Whal! aro you Aincricans we;i and fly bcfore thcso Brilish soldicrs? Back and facc them oncc morc seize yotir arms faco the foe, or I inysclf will ridc you down!" That appeal, utlcrcd with dcep, indiij naut toncs, and a faco convulscd with pns- sion, is not without its cllecls. J Iic niili- tia man turns, soizcs his gun; his com rades as if by onc itupulse. follow hia cx- ainple. Thcy form in solid 'ordcr along thc ficld, aud silcntlv load thcir pieces; thcy wuit thc onset of lliu.se British bayo ncts. "Rescrtc your fire unti! voti can tonch tho point ol your bayoncts!" was thc whispered connnand of the Unknown. llioso niilitia-men, so lately panic-sti ick- en, now rcgarded Ihe approach of thc red- coats in silcuce, yct cahnly and without a Iremor. 1 Iic liritisli came on ncarer aml ncarcr yet you can sco tlieir oycs uleam, you can count the bultons on tlieir scnrlot coats. Thcy seck to tcrrify tlic iiiilitia-incu with sliouts; but Ihosc plaiu larmcrs do not movo nu inclu In onc line biittwenty mcn in all thcy confront twenty nharp bayoncts. Tho British advance thoy are within tvo yards. 'Now opcn upon thu robcls cbarnc bayoncts!' shouted the rcd-coat otlicer. fii i i . . incyspriiig lorwaru, wiinine samc bound look! Thcir bayoncts nlmost touch tho inuzzlcs of these rifles! At this inomcnt the voicc of thc Ridcr as hcurd. 'Now let theni havcit -JireP A sound was hcard a tmokc is sccn twcnty Britons are down, sonio writhing in dcalh, somc crawling along thc sod, some specchlcss as stonc. Tho remain- iilg ten startcd back but then is no limc for supprisc. 'Club your rifles, and chargo them homc!' sliouts tho Unknown, and the Bcuck Ilorsc springs forward, followcd by thc miliiia-iiien. Thcu a confuscd con flict a cry of 'quartei!' a vision of Ihe twcnty farmers grotipcd around the Ridcr of thc Black Horso, urectinc; hini with bearty checrs. Thtis it was all tho day long. Whercver that Black IIorfG Aud his Ri der wcnt, thcrc followcd victory. The soldicrs iu cvcry part oflhc fiold sccuied to kuow that Ridcr, lor thcy haileil him with shouls, ihey obcy,ed lus commands, they rushed after him, ovcr yonder can iion, llirough yonder lino of bayoncts. His nppcaraucc in any.tjuarter of tlic ficld was succccded by a despcratc onsct, a ternblc chargc, or a strtiEri'lc hand to with thc soldicrs of Burgoync. Was this nota stningc thiiiL'? This unknown man, without couunand was u bcycd by all tho soldicrs, as though thcy rccognize tlieir Ocncral. Ihey acluiowl edged him for a Leadcr, whercver hc rode; thoy followcd him lo dcath whcucvcr hc gavo thc word. Now look for him again. On tho summit of yonder hill, tho Black Ilorse siauds crcct on his hatinches, his forc-lcgs pawing thc air, whilo thc Rider bcnds over his neck and looks toward the cloudcd villey. Tho hat has fallen from that Ridcr's brow, his facc is covcr cd with blood nnd swcat; his right h.ind grasps that batlcred sword. llow ini prcssivc that sight, as nn occasioual suu beaui hghls tho Rider's brow, or a red flash of bntllc light, baihes his facc, as in ray sof blood! At this monicnl, aslhc black stccd rcars on I iic summit of ihe hill, look yon der from thc opposiic valley dashcs ftlajor Armstrong, iu search ofthat Uiikuowu Itider, who sces him coniing, turns his horse's hcad aud disnppcars with a latigh of scorn. Slill thc iiallaut JiJninr kccos on his way, iu eoarch of tho man, who ex- citcs tlic fcars of Goucral Galcs this brave Rider, who was about to do "somc- thiiiL' rash" Al last, towards tho solting of tho sun, the crisis of thc conflict camc. That fortress vondcr oii Bcbmiis Ilcight was to bo won or tlic Aniericaii causo was lost. That fortress was to bo naincd, or Gates was a dishoiiorcd man; Burgoyne a tritimphanl Gcncral. 1 hat lortress yonder you can scc it ihroiinh tho battlc clouds with its wall of red coats, its lincs of British cannon, ils forrsi of bayonots. JiVcn thoso bold riflcmen, who wcro in he wildcrnoss with ono Bonedict Arnold, who stormed thc walls of (iuchcc, with this Arnold and Montgomery, on tho cold dayh'roak of Dccember thirty-first, 1775, cv'on thoso mcn ofiron fell back, tcrrified at the siglil. J'hat clifl'is too stecp that dcnth is loocerlatn. Thoirhfliccrs caiinot pur suadc them to ndvancc. Tho Anioricar.s havc lott thc ficld, Even Morgan that Iron Man niftoni' Iron Men leans on lus rillu, nnd dispairs oflhc ficld. But look yondor! In this moincnt, whilc all is disnmy nnd horror, heic clash ing on, comcs thc Black Ilorsc aud his Ridcr. That Ridor hcnd . from his stecd; you cnn sco his phrcnzied faco, now covcrrd wilh sweat, aud dust, and blood. Hc lays his hand untltat bold riflcmati's falioul-dcr. 'Comc on!' ho crics: 'you will not fuil mc now! Tho rifleman knowslhat facc that voicc, As though living fire had becn pourcd into hislns, he grasps lus nllo, and starts to waVds thc rock. 'Comc on!' crics tho rider of tho Black Ilorse, turning from onc scarcd facc to anothcr. 'Comc on! you will not fail tne now!' "Ile spcaks in that voico which thrjlls thcir blood. 'Yon wcro with mo in thc Wildcrncss!' hc crics to onc: and you at Q,ucbec!' he sliouts to anothor; 'do you remcmbcrf' 'And you at Monlrcal' 'And you, thcro on Lake Chomplninl You know mc you havc known mc lonjr Havo I cver spoken lo you iu vain? I speak to you now do you sco thnt Rock? Come on! And now look, and now liolil your breath as that black slccd crashes up thc steeprock! Ah, thai stced quivers he totters hc falls! No, no! btill on, still up ihe rock, still on towards thc fortress. No, look again his Rider turns his face 'Comc on, Mcn of Q,ucbcc, whcre I lcad. you will follow!' But that cry is needlcss. Alrcady the bold riflemcn are on tho rock. And up and ouward, one fiercc holt of battle, aud wilh that Wariior on his Black Stced, lcadiiiK the drcad way, swcep tho Men of the Wildcrncss, thc Herocs of Q.ucbcc. Now pour your fires, Britiah cannon. Now lay the dead upon tho rock, in tcns and twenties, Now hirelings shout your British battlc cry il you can! For look, as llio battlo smoko clears a way, look thcrc, in thc galc of thc foitrcss for ihe Black slccd aud his Ridcr! That Stced falls dead, piered by an huudred balls, but llicrc his Ridcr wnvcs tho Banncr of the Stars, thcrc as thc British cry for quarler, hc lifta his voicc, and shouls afar lo Iloralio Gates, wailiug yonder iu his: he lclls him that 'Saraloga isicou!' And look! As that shout gocs up to heafcn, hc falls upon his Stred, wilh his lcg shattcrcd by a cannon Imll, Iic lays there, on his dead Stecd, blced ing and insciisiblc, whilc his hand, laid ovcr thc neck of tho gallant Ilorse, still grasps thc Banner of thc Stars. Who was tho Ridcr of tho Black Ilorse? Do you not gucs3 his namc? Then bend down and jinzc upon that shat tercd limb, and you will scc that it bears thc scars of a former wound a hidcotis wouiid it must hu'vc bccu. Now, do you not guesa his namc? That wound wasre ccived at ihe storming of Quebcc; that Ridcr of tho Black Horso was Benediot Aronld.
