TIUJ TEAiTOG BOY. AN IMIllCW or 'I'll!; Ill; VOLITION. writer has been i'bb'd to his friends for many of the incidents winch he has given to the public : and among those which have been kindly furnish. d him is the following. It cannot fail to inhrrest the reader on more accounts than one. To see a boy, int able lo wield the rifle. engaged in the defence of his country dn aing the American evolution, was no un common occurrence. But it was a most extraotdinary cirentr.st jiice to find one not yet arrived d the age of maturity, lighting on the side of 'liberty, when his parents and all bis relations were zealous and ac tive partiaiis on th" opposite side. It may with truth be snid that the hun dreds mid thousand:; took side during the American revolution, fioin accident or interest; while iti; not denied that the great mass of the people were actuated bv principle in their resistance to tvrannv and o;eii-'--s:n!i. l.'ot it would seem (bit .l(i-.!a:i .ilo.'ilj.jy espoused the Cairo of his c.um'i v in the same manner that Sir John I'alist. :" i - al.'eg -I I hive known Prince I Lil, in his encounter with the robbers. It was not i.-hmki or red -ctiou winch lauo it liui that right and ju- tiee wore on the side le took, for he was too votiog to reason or have pd'ei tion on the nvitt'-r. Nor was governed in his choice bv interest, for thii would have prompted him to have taken tlie si le of his father and relations. Me must then have known by instinct that l.nifii ry w as the true and lawful inheri tance nf bis countrymen, and (h it duty re quired bun to forsak.' father and mother, and cleave unto it wilh ardent and insatia ble feelings of love. The parents of Jordan Montjoy Were tories of the deepest dye, and their house was a place of common rendezvous for the 'bloody scout' when in Spartanburgh Dis trict, All the meetings of the tories, in that part of the country were held there, and their schemes and plans of murder ami devastation were there lormed and concoc ted. No Whigs ever visited the house through social intercourse or deemed it prudent so to do, under any circumstances unless with a strong escort. Jordan asso ciated with none hut the friends of his fa ther, and seldom saw any of those who were opposed to him; yet" Im felt a secret partiality for those whom he knew not, and whose principles ha never heard men tioned except with execration! lie was thought by ids friends to he too young to be of service to them, ami was therefore suffered to remain nt home in peace and quietude. Their schemes and plans how ever, were not concealed from him, and he had free access to all their deliberations and meetings. - It was during one of these meetings of the 'bloody scout,' that he became cogni zant of a deep-laid scheme to surprise and capture a company of 'liberty men,' under the command ol Captain Thomas Farrow, SUNlilJiiY. NOUTHirMUKIthAM) COUNTY, 1'A., KA'l l.'JiDAY, UUTOUttll 4. IS.-Sfl. w iTvaTva.ra of Laurens Jlisliicl. No sooner Inn! he heard of all their arrangements thtin he. mounted u llect horse, nnd put off post haste t infill ill thi' Whios of their danger iitirl conteiiiplaleil destruction. Cnptattl Far row immediately ileterniini'tl to lake nil vaidaire of the timely waniitiir, tmd sur piise the lories by 011 nllaik thai I'.ioht. This lie did successfully, and thereby turn ed the scale noainst the 'bloody scout,' to the terror and contusion of their friends in the neighbor!) ioil. This traitorous act of young Monljiiy became known to the tories, and tin v Ilii-'-ali'tied his death on siirht. In cons, (juence of their threats and hih ilis !i n-f re of his parents and relations", he hud to h ave horn" forever, and lake tip his alio.!,' in 1 he American camp, llehecatne in a short time one of the most active, cr,-ti'i-pi i-in-r, nnd daring parlizuns of whom tlie Whirs could boast, lie wm always sui t to reconnoitre and spy out the niov. -me:d:j o(' the lories'. n one of these ad ventures, near I:h father's house, he met a company ol lories, under a noted leader by tin- nutiie n (Jray. With the speed of an arrow lie dashed by Cray, fired hia pi-dol in l is (ace, am! made his escape in safety. l"i-r some time during the latter part of the lievulutioi!, yotiii iMonljoy helonjed to an American puri::on on the frontier of (Jeoro'.i. On one occasion, while there, he volunteered to eo w ith a small detach ment in peifiiil d some Indians, who had been fteaiiti-j horses in the neiL'hborhood. The ui-tachmeiil was under the command of a Lieutenant, who did not exercise that precaution which is absolutely necessarv in a pursuit of Indians. Tho 'detachment was surprised and all killed except Mont- ply ami one other, rtlonlpjy did not leave the proimd until lie had tired his ride and two pis'ols, and seen all his comrades, save one, fall side by side, ife escaped unhurt, iillhouoli s"vcial balls had passed through his coat and pantaloons. On another occasion, while in the same garrison, the Indians became so trouble some that it was dangerous to vrntnre out at all. It was at the' hazard of one's life to go to the creek or branch within sioht of the fort. There waa an old lady in the garrison who had a horse about this lime which she could get no one to ride to wa ter for her. After making application to several, she asked Montjoy if he would be so obliging as to risk bis life in riding her horse to water. Without any sort of hesi tation Jordan complied with lite old lady's ri-ijiii sl, look his pistols, mounted his horse ami rode to the creek. While the horse was drinking, he discovered an Indian slipping from the hushes nearest the fort and before he could wheel, the savage had his bridle reins in his srasp. With quick ness Jordan drew his pistol nnd lodged the contents of it into the bosom of his assail ant. Such boldness and presence of mind, such period command of himself, under a circumstance so well calculated to trv the nerves nf a lad, acquired for him, very de servingly, a high character among his asso ciates in arms.

When Damon was sentenced, by Dionysi 11s of Syracuse, to die on a certain day, he begged permission, in the interim, In retire lo his own country, lo set dm ullaiisof his disconsolate family in order. Thix the ty rant intended pi'reniptoiily to refus", by giniiliug it, 119 lie conceived, on the impossi ble eoudilioiis of bis proem ing same one to remain as hostage for his return, under equal forfeiture of lile. Pythias l eard the condi tion and did not wail for an applic ation on the part of Bunion ; be instantly otl'eted himself ns seemity fur his fiiend t which being .leci'i'ted, Damon was immediately scl nt libeily. Tho king and nil l!io coin tiers were nstonihed at this notion ; and iheiefoie, when Iho dnv of execution drew near, his majesty had die cm it.siiy lo visit Pythias in his confinement. Ai'mr some conversation on the subject of fi ien.l.-hip, in wind! Hie tyrant ilolivcroil It us Ins opinion, that self-interest was the sole mover of hu man aetious ; as for virtue, L ieml.-hin, bo- ncvolence, love of rue's country, ui-d the like, he looked upon them as P-nns invented y llie wise to keep in awe niul impose upon the weak. '-My Lord," s:-ys Pylhias. with a firm voice and noblo itsp-.c-t, 'I would it were possible l hat I might suffer a thmis.nd deaths, rather than mv Liend lould fail in any article of his lienor, lie cannot fail lheiein, mv Lord : 1 cm nn crn:f;- dent of his virtue, 11s t am of my own exis tence. Hut I pi ay, I beseech I In? gods, lo preseive the life nnd integrity of my Damon together : oppose him, ye wind', prevent tho eagerness and impatience of his honora ble emleavois, and sulTer him not to arrive, till by death 1 have redeemed a life a thou sand times of more consequence, of more. value, diaii my own ; more estimable to his lovely wife, lo his precious lillle children, to his fiiends, to his country. Oh, leave me not lo die die woist of deaths in my Damon." DionvMiis was awed mid confounded by the dignity of lliese seniiments, and by die manner in which they were uttered ; he fell his heart struck bv a slight sense ol" invading truth : but it served rather lo perplex than undeceive- him. The fatal day arrived. Pv- thins was bioiioht foilh, and walked nmiilst the guards wilh a serious but salisiied air, to tho place of execution. Dionysius was al icady there, In; was exalted 011 a moving throne, which was drawn by six while horses, and sat pensive and alleetivu lo the piisoner. Pythias came, he vaulted lighly 011 the scallohl, and beholding for some time tin) npparatus of bis dealh, he turned wilh a placed countenance, uiul addressed the spectators : 'My prayeis are heard," he cried, "the nods are propitious ; ye know, myfiieuds, that the winds have been con. 1 1 ti r y till yesteiday. Damon could not come, ho could nol conquer impossibilities; be will be here to morrow, and the blood which is shed to-day shall have ransomed the life of my fiieud. Oh, could I ciase fiom your bosom every doubt, cveiy mean suspicion of the honor of the man lor whom I am ;Lout lo fuller, I should go to my death, even us I would to my luidal. lie il sutiieieul in die menu lime, dial my fiieud will lie found no ble ; dud his truth is unimpeachable ; that lie w ill speedily prove it ; that he is now on his way, hurrying on, liccusiug himself, llie adveiso clement mid the gods ; but I haste lo prevent his speed : executioner do your ollice." As he pronounced the l..st wonls, a buzz began to 1 i-e among iho leinoiesi if the people ; a distant voice was beaid, the crowd caught the won!-, nnd "slop, slop the execution : was repeated bv tho v hole as- i-i seiubly ; a man came at full speed: lh dining gave way lo his approach : his was mutinied on a steed of foam: in an instant he was oil bis lu:e, 011 die t-calloM, and clasped Pythias in bis in ins. 'You lire safe," he cried, you nie cafe, my fiieud, my beloved friend : die ends be praised, you are safe, I now have nothing but death lo suf. for ; and am deliveied fiom the aiignied! of those lepuiaches which I gave myself for having ei.ilai.gi'ieil a li:' ,. much dearer Ihan my own." Pale, cold, an i h i!l-.-peech-hss in die arms of his Donor, Pythias re plied in broken accents, ' Fatal b.is'e ! Ciuid impatience ! What envious powers have wrought iinpossibihies iu your favor! lint 1 will not be wholly dii-appuintt'd. Since I cannut die lo save, I will not survive you." Dionysius heard, hclu kl, nnd con sidered i.ll with iisionishnient.

The explana tion is ns follows : I reside about four miles from this place, and, not being well on the morning of the 16th, did not reach my ollico till some lime after 10 o'clock, where, for the first lime, 1 heard id die rapture of about fifty of the men who had come wilh Lopez, to thi? is land in the steamer Pampero. 1 at the same time heard lh.il the prisoners had been tried, found guilty, condemned, ordered to bo exe eiiled, the order for their execution sent for ward, nnd that ihey were abuul being remo ved from the haibor, w here they were, to the p'aco of ex ecu! ion. Shorlly 'i w ards, the American residing here, who, it is said, called on me, came and mentioned the subject to me, when I s-ii ! lo him that il was loo late, and that I coul I do nothing that I should not have time to get permission to sen die prisoners. Of lies I felt perfectly satisfied at iho time and 1 have since been confirmed in Ibis opinion by ibe highest authority in the is land, who informed me that the execution, which bad already been ordered before I reached the city, would not have been post poned for me to have an interview wilh I he. prisoners, inasmuch as all I could have asked to be permitted to do, had already been done by a gentleman known to some of llie prisoners, and for whom they had sent. Soon afler the American referred too left my office, I received die. information that n gentleman known lo some of iho prisoners had been sent for by I hem, and to him they had delivered the articles and messages they desired lo be conveyed to their fiiends. It was but a short time afterwards that 1 sent to the palace of the Governor and Captain General, and heard that the prisoners had then been executed. Yon will thus see that I hud no lime to net, nnd that il was not in my power lo do anything for the unfortunate men who had been induced to invade Cuba, wilh die ex pectation that they would find die w hide is land in a state of revolution, and that Ihey would be received wilh open arms by the whole native population at least. The charge, of indiiicrence to the dreadful condition of such a number of men, iho bit terest enemy 1 have on earth will not be lieve ; and ail must believe it a base faltc hood and an unfounded calumny. If it were allowable on such nn occasion. I would most solemnly declare before God that, in my judgment, at the time and under the circumstances, it was not 111 my power either lo have 1111 interview wilh die pris oners, or to have done anything in iheir bo hair.

The Vicuna correspondent of the Loudon Xeirs describes die following shocking affair as having In ken p'ace at Szent Mario, near Gross-Wardien, lately : 'At a peasant's wedding, when tho pro cession of iho brotherhood was moving to wards die church, the gendarme approach-, ed Iho biideiiod summoned her immediate, ly to divest of the red, while, and preen ribbons which she had in her dress, accord ing lo die cusloiii of die country girls, sav- :.. ,1,.,. ,i, ...... !.... ,..,.ii;,. 1 The bridegroom objected, savin" that after J ,)n ,.,.,,.,,, y the birdu would comply with j dm desire of tho gendarme! but dial now I ihey could not keep the piiest wailing at the j altar.

A man may in some suit tie his frail hopes and honors, with weak, shifting cround-lncle to businrss or to 1 tin world : but a woman without that anchor which they call Faith, is adrift, and a wreck ! A man may clumsily contiive a kind of moral responsibility, out of his relations of man kind ; but a woman in her comparatively isolated sphere, where affection nnd not purpose is die controlling motive, can find no basis for any system of right nction, but that oT spiritual faith. A mini cnu craze his thought, and his brain, to trust fulness in such poor harborage, as Fame nnd Reputa tion may stretch before him : but a woman where can she put her hope in storms if not in heaver. 1 And thai sweet truthfulness that abiding love that enduring hope, mellowing every page and scene of life, lighting them with pleasantcst ladiauce, when the world-storms break like an army with smoking cannon who can bestow it all, but a holy soul-tio to whal is above, the storms, and to what is stronger than nn army wilh cannon ?
