Bt trlB ACTLT0R OP "TRE DEIR TO ACnLET. CHAPTER III. Continued. Mrs. Yorke retired at the nsnnl tiorir. Before she had began to QddresR, ber bus band followed her to the room, locked the door, and put the key in his pocket. Mrs. Yorke was surprised : tbry never slept with their door locked. "Why have joa done that ?' she osked. "Uecause I chose. Yea can't sail ont of the room now, with yonr trngedy nir, end re fuse to boar me. Now, Mrs. Yorke, who concocted this moonlight walk to-nibtT How fur did your love-muUiog go in it ? I nil! know." Mrs. Yorke did glance at the door, for it bad become a custom with her to leave bcr husband to himself when the dark, jealous mood was ou l.im, but she knew that eho glanced in Tain. Sbe wus cnged. "1 will not bear it," she exclaimed. "If this is to continue, 1 will summon mamma, here, and bare a separation arranged. I lmve been to you a truo and faithful wife; you know I have; that mania has come upoa you that you should level theso re proaches at me ?' "You have : I giro yon credit for it. I never doubted you until wo came here, and you renewed your intimacy and friendbhip with yonr old lover." "Ho was do lover of mine," she replied, disdaining to use evneion in such a case. ' Were you not both before me those old days, you and he, and I chose you ? Which was the favored lover, prny ?" "Juuson," coolly replied Mr. Yorke. "lie was not. "You fpeak in the face of facts, Mr. Yorke. I married you." "Loving him. Hut 1 was rich and he wts poor. Do you remember your lust parting with him, the evening he returned from that uhsurd voyage, Vihere 1 with be had been wrecked 1" "What parting?'' rejoined Mrs. Yorke; but her checks burnt and ber voice fultered. "What parting! Shall I repeat ft, though yon know every word of it belter than 1? Ay, yon do ! When you told bim, with tears ami wails and sobs, that you were miserable, for you had bound yourself to marry me, and you loved bim : when you Liy passively in his arm.?, and welcomed bis embrace with a welcome you have never given to mine I I fpeak of that parting, 1 witnessed it." Mrs. Yorke breathed hurriedly. She could not speak. "You did not deceive me, Elfznbolb, though you thought yon did, for I buried my injuries v. ilbin me. Jlad I not loved you so pussionately, I should have left you to bim : and 1 knew that you pronounced your marri age vow 8 to me with JaDsou's kifcsos not cold upon your lips." She raised her head as if to speak, but no words came. "It was not a plossant knowledge for mo, your brid-'groom; but I never visited it upon you. Yon utj nwaro I never did, Eliza beth : my love for you was too great. I have loved 0u," be added, his tone changing to sof'uess, "with a love passing that of man. 1 wus forbearing, nnd never visited it npon you, save by deeper and deeper tenderness ; 1 forced mvfelt' to think ol it as a picco of gitliFii lolly, ana l was beginning to lurget it; I nearly bad forgotten it, Elizabeth, when we came here." "And so had 1 forgotten it," sho spoke Dp, abruptly, "forgottHii .lansoti and ull connec ted with bim. I livod but for my children, for you, for my own natural ties and inter ests, and I never shall live lor anything else- J ansnn 1 wliat is he to me now r 1- or shame, Mr. Yorke ! I am an English gentlewoman ; your wife) and your children's mother." "We have been here a month more. Not a day, from the first afternoon we camo, but be has been here, in your society, eomctimeg twice a day." "And buw can I help that? Circumstances have compelled it. The child cannot bo left without uiedicul attendance.' You are fre quently nt borne when Mr. Junson comes, uud you know that bis visits aro limited to the child ; he rarely accepts the oCer of sit ting down with us ; aud it is the same when you aro away " "And this night ! for you to have walked home with him in the moonlight, resting on his arm j you nnd he, of oil people in the world ! And I following on your steps later, picturing what that walk hud been to you both, in my jealous torment 1 Elizabeth, 1 was mad this night as I came along, if ever mun was; and Jansou nitty be tbaukful thut 1 did not meet him, for I should bavu sprung upon bim and beuten him to death." ''For shame! for shame ! again I say it," i-lio uttered, iudignution rendering hor speech linn. "1 have never forgotten, by word or look, my own self-respect, since this, our sec ond meeting with Mr. Janson; nor has be. I have bc-eu to bim your wile, my children's mother, culm in my conscious dignity, and he has been to me as to you, the plain family attendant. lo you doubt me still? Will you have me swear to it ? lean. Forsbnme, .Mr. Yorke! 1 think you are mad. l.el us leave the place if your madness is to contin ue, una go where we can have other medical udvico." Was Mr. Yorko mad? He was certainly unhinged. He fell into a storm of sobs and tears, aud clasping his wife to bim, reiterated uow passiouatulv he oved ber. Mr. Yorke was ularmed : she bad never seen Imil like this. Hesentuient for his roundless suspicions would have nrumnted her to turn scorufully from him, but she did not dare; so she only repeated, in as concil iatory a toue as she could bring her anirrv J to allow, that she. h-il It ft linvnrt lit thought conuected with Mr. Jooson. And 1 fpoko truth. Ho seemed to believa hue ir v,.i.i did believe her, and he put bis injurious sua- (jiviuo. .nai irum uim; unu in the moru ne- w ben i Mr. Janson paid bis visit to the child, M r. Yorke spoke cordially to bim. and niw,i him his band, a mark of favor be Lad n-r0. condescended to, before. Hut who can put awav at will the nan. nf jealousy? There is not an earthly passion, even iovo nueii, uui is more under control Ere tho day wus over it returned in full force to the unhappy Mr. Yorke, throwing its own jaundice over hit sight aud bearing. The inosi innocent movement or nit wire or Mr. Janson, wore to him but oue interpretation the common courtesy or nand sualciug would excite bim, almost past repression. He said nothing more to bis wife : he watched : aud though be taw no tangible thing, that even jealousy could take hold of, be was only the more enraged, and repeats. to himself tbat they weie playing their part" to deceive and blind him. Il lie reader bat ever felt tbe dreadful passion of jealousy in (ta extreme lorce, lie will understand -ana recognize. .Mr, Yorka't self torments, bet if be bat not, they will appear absurdly improbable, or bordorlng on iusanity ; let him bope tbat to bim they may always appear to. CHAPTER IV. Tho child grew better; he was getting well ; end Mr. Jnnson't visits were now paid but oceasioDnlly. At length the day came that ho took leave. Hit task was done, he good bumoredly observed, for Master Leo was upon hit legs again. Mrs. Yorko men tioned this to ber bnsband in tbe evening, as an itidiflerorjt topic of conversation, glad, no doubt, for tbe take of peace, to be ablo to do it. "Left for good, bat be?" repeated Mr. Yorke. "Yes. I requested bim to tend in bit ac count." This was on a Monday. The next day, Tuesday, Mr. Yorke went ont for a whole day's shooting, a thing be bad not yet done. True, be had gone out ebooting several times, sinco the season came in, but only by fits and starts. Otit for en hour or two, and bock home again; out again for another hour and back ngnin: Mrs. Yorke understood It all, and thoroughly despised bim in her indignant heart. But on Tuesday hn went out in tho morning, aud came borne at night just in timo for dinner. JJo was in good spirits, talked plcasuntly wiih bis wil'o and played with Leopold. Wednesday was spent in precisely the same way, and on Thursday be also went out with bis gnn, as soon as breakfust was over. On thi day, a Miss Ilardisty, a friend of Mrs. Yorke's, arrived on a visit, somewhat unexpectedly, for they bad not looked for her for a day or two. The afternoon of Thursday turned out wretchedly. It did not rain, but a dense fog, or sort of Scotch mist, overhung iho atmos phere. Twilight set iu, and M rs. Yorke stir red her good fire into a roaring blaze, and thought how fond men must be of pheastuit fhool.ng to stay out in such a day. Her guest, fatigued wilh ber railway journey, was in her chamber, lying down, and hud request ed not to be called till tea-time. "Oh, here he is," cried Mrs. Yorke, ns an indistinct form passed the window. "I won der how many be has bagged : wu min-l send oil' some tnoro sopplies to our friends, or it will bo something like 'tnujours pedrix.' lie will be surprised to bear thut Olivia is como." "Mr. Janson," said a servant, opening tbe door. Mr. Janson entered. And as lie took his seat, inquired alter Leopold. "He remains quite well," replied Mrs. Yorke. "1 thought I understood you, last Monday, that you should not come to bim ogain," she added, feeling tincomlortublo lest her husband should como homo und find hi in there after her having stated that bis at tendance hud ceased. "This is not a professional visit," laughed Mr. Junson. "I bavo been to see Lady ltich, and thought I would call iu bb 1 passed your bouso to say how d'ye do, aud heur lhat Leopold wus nil right." "Thank you," answered Mrs. Yorke, in a rather constrained manner ; for when lealons suspicions, entirely unfounded, are enterlainod by a husband, they must and do make the monitors of the beet of women constraiued and embarrassed. Mr. Janson drew bis chair neor to Mrs. Yorke's ; not to be nearer her, hut to enjoy tho genial blaze of tho fre. Unfortunately bo hud no idea of Mr. Yorke's fears : bo only thought bim an abrupt, .haughty, uncertain man, different from what he used lo be. Mrs. Yorke rose to ring the bell. You shall see Leopold," sbo said. "Not yet; let me speuk a word to vou ; pray sit clown ngaiu," suid Mr. Janson, inter rupting ber movement. 'I want to coubult some one, and 1 have as you must know a very high opinion of your discernment aud good tense, so 1 wish to ask your advice t I thull value il more than that of any one else. You know Miss Maskell." "Yes. I have seen much of ber sin:o we came here," replied Mrs. Yorke. "Do you believe she would make a good wife?" "I think bar a very nmiaM nice gn-1. Yes, I am sure sbo would. Who wants to marry ber?" "1 don't know yet whether any one does," he smiled. "But people tell me I must marry, or lose my practice, for my patients say they will have a fumily man to attend tliem, not a bachelor. So 1 have been look ing round about hip, and beg;ri to thiuk fLut Aliss MaKkuil would be suitable." Mrs. Yorke luuched. "Oh. Mr. Janson! How coolly you speak; as coolly as you might i( you wero only going to take on a new surgery boy. I liese allairs should always be cased round with romance." lie shook bis beod. "Romance died out. for me years ago." Foi ooe moment their eyes met; perhops unwittingly; aud then both looked ueteiminedly nt the lire oguin. "l UK6 l.ucy MosUcll much," he resumed : "so far as liking goes. I believe she would make me a good wife. "le, indeed, I do truly think it, Mr. Jan son. And 1 earnestly bone yon Mil be linn. py. Believe me you shall both have my best prayers and wishes for it," was Mrs. Yorke's answer, bhe was pleasod that Mr. Janson was going to be happy at aat, for bhe knew. thut she bad once tried bis heart Beverelv. In the canicf tnet-s of ber content,' she rut her hand into bis as she spoke put it as a single-hearted, honest woman would. And Mr. Juuson clasoedl. and leaned over to- wurds her, and tliatiked bur kindly. What dark shadow was tbat outside of the window, with its face pressed against the pane? a face whoso expression, just then, wus us the lace or a demon, whose eyes glared and whose teeth glistened. They suw it not, but as their bunds met, and Mr. Janson lenned nearer to his companion, a noise, half savage growl, half hritU of defiance escaped it. They heard that. "W'hut't that sound ?" uttered Mrs Y orke, turning towards the window. Nothing was there then. "Somebody passing in the road, suggested Mr. Junson; "but it teemed vory near. A night-bird, probably. Shall I tee Leopold now ?" Mrs. Yorko oncned the roem door and called to tbe child, who came runuing in. Iu two minutes Mr. Jansoa bad left. Mrs. Yorke kept Leopold with her, and the time passed more swiftly than she thought. By and by. one of the aervaott came in to Ituow if bo should serve dinner. "Why, what time it it?" inquired bit mis tress. 1 '."w" 10 mnch Psl ma'am." 'I had no idea it was to lute." i r. ? lr'i"g five when Mr. Janton left,' saul the man. Mrs. Yorke chose to waitt bot when it grew near seven, the ordered tba linr m h ,Bh tl'ought ber husband bud stop ped to dine with tome sporting acquaintance, or bad lost bit wav in iho fr. k...i. i,...i the tat down to it whan tbe beard bim enter and go straight op stairs, bit ttep, at tbt 1 fan.iuil n I. .... II t. "What tan he want there without a can dle ?" she wondered. " Perhaps be thinks ho can wash his bands iu tho dark, and would not wait for one." "Elizabeth," called out Mr. Yorko. Sbo rose nnd went to the door. "Yes." "Bring me op a light, will you. Bring it yourseir." "What tad now?" thonght Mrs. Yorke. "take it up 1" But she lighted a chhmbcr candle, and went up stairs with it. Her bus baud was standing insido their bedroom door, which was all but closed, and nothing to be seen of him but bis ona hand stretched out fur the light. "Where have yon been so late? Did the fog cause you to miss your way?" He did jiot reply, only took tho light from her. She pushed the door, wishing to enter, bnt it resisted her efforts. "Let me come in, she said ; "1 have some news for you. Olivia Hurdisty's come." Not a word or reply was vouchsafed to her. Only the door banged to in ber face, aud tbe key of it turned. "He's sulky again," thought Mr3. Y"orto "How fortunate be did not happen to come homo while Mr. Janson was hero! Make baste," she cotnlccended to call out. as sh'o retreated, "I have bulf done dinner" M r. Yorke soon came down, dressed. A mark of attention given to Miss. Hordisty, Mrs. Yorke supposed ; or if late, like that bo would not have troubled to dress for her. He scarcely spoke and did not eat, but bo drank freely ; ntid he seemed to bavo been drinking previously. "1 asked you why you wero so late," said Mrs. Yorke. "Yon atnwered yourself," was his reply. "that I lost my way. The fog was deuse." "The fog seems to have taken away your npetite, aud to have made you thirsty." "The luncheon did both. Tho meat was salt." "Were did yon get luncheon?" "At Squire llipgruve's. "Have you had good sport ?'' "Middling. Who can shoot in a fog. "Yon have brought no birds homo." "I lefs them at Hipgrave's." 'I'liesunts, 1 suppose 1 'Yes. I wished you would not keep tip this running f.re of questions. My beud oches." Mrs Y'orke ceased and cat ber dinner. As tho cloth was being removed her guest came in. nnd ulso Leopold. Mr. Yorke was com pelled to exert himself a littln then, but be had partaken fur more freely of wine than usual nnd Mrs. Yorke, was vexed, for sho be lieved it must be apparent to M iss Hurdisty "How well Leopold looks, considering bis long illness !" cxclumed Miss Hurdisty. "He is wonderful," returned Mrs. Yorke. "You would not think, lo see him now, that bo was so very ill. "1'opu," cried Leopold, "Mr. Janson says I am got well soon because i was good, aud took the physic without crying." "Ah !" suid Mr. Yorke, '"when did be soy that." "To-night, when bo was Lore with mamma, and they culled me in." M r. Y'orke turned his eyes npon Lis wife, fixedly steadily. "Wus J unsoti hero to-night. "Tlii3 afternoon, between lour und five. It seemed like night, it was so dark," sbo an swered, cquubly, but in spite of herself she could not prevent a vivid flush rising to bcr chee!;s." "You told mo be had dono coming." "As he bad. 1 remarked to bim that I had understood bim to say so, and he replied that be did not call to-day professirnal'.y, but just dropped in as l.o wuj passing to income bow I.eopolJ continued. Ho told me a little bit of news, too about l.imelf," added M rs Yorke to her husband, affecting to speak guyly, which I will repeot to you by and by." When the child's bedtime came, instead of Flinch fetching him, it waa C'harllotte. "Where's Flinch?" demanded Mrs. Yorke. She's gono as fur as tho village, ma'am She wanted to buy some ribbon at the shop." 'How could 'sho tbo 'so such a night as this ?" returned Mrs. Y'orke. "How stupid she must be ! she will lose her way." "Oh no ma'am the fog is not as bad ns it was. an hour or two ago, and she said she did not cam lor fogs. Slio won't be long." "Chatlolte went off with Leopold and Miss Hardis-ty smiled. "Servants are sadly wan ting in common sense, most of them." "1 svpposo Finch had previously fixed on to-night to go out, and of courso she could not bear to diappoint iiersell, but must go, log or no fog. It's just liko them." Mr, Yorko !uid buck in bis easy chair and seemed to sleep, and his wife apologised to Mist Hunlesty thut be had a Lard day's shooting, aud wns "done up." About nino o'clock Finch came bursting into the room, bcr things on, ns she bad en tered the bouse, and punting for breath, "Oh ma'am, 1 don't know how I've got home ! Fvo run every f (ep of the way, fright ened out of my life. There has been such an av. ful murder !'' "Where " asked Mr. Yorke. "Close here in the village, r one thieves set upon a fanner' son coming bnmo from market, and shot him, and pulled him olT bis horsn, and then beat l.im about the I cad till ho died, and then rilled bis pockets of bis watch und money, and then left bim in a pool of blood," replied Finch, all in a breath. Ho was found about live o'clock, and tho vil lage has been up in arms ever since ; every body' out of their bouses." Mr. Y'orke sat bolt upright in kit chair. His eyes glittered upon Finch. "A pretty tale," suid be, to hi wife and Miss HurdiHty, Finch tlew off to impsit the news in the kitchen. "This is how stories pet exaggerated. There was no horse in tho uQ'uir, uud no robbery, nnd it was not a farmer's son going home from market." "You have beard or it then r exclameu Miss Hurdcstv.- ''cs, was Mr. Yoike't reply. "And never to have told us 1" remonstrat ed his wifo, "You say it was not a farmer's son. Do you know who it is?" Junson. Murdered in his own garden as bo was going in. Juat insido the door." o bt continued J A Minnesota HAii.noAD. On the 10th inst., the srading of the road between St. l'nul und St. Antony, Minnesota, was com menced, wilh a limited force, which is to be increased as soon as accommodations for the laborers can be prepared.

Whose broad stripes nnd bright stars through the perilous fight, O'er the rcmpurt wo watched were so gal lantly streaming? And the rockets ted glare, tho bombs burst ing in the air Gavo proof through the night Unit our flag was still there, O ! say, does that slur spangled banner yet wave. O'er tho land of the free and tho Lome of the Bravo ? Ou the shore, dimly seen through Iho mist of the deep, Whcro tho foe's hanghly Lost in dead si lence reposes ; What is that w hich the brcezo o'er tho tow ering step As il fitfully blows, half concealed, half dis. closes? Now it catches the g'.oam of the morning's first beam In full glory rellectcd now shines on tho stream ; 'Tis the stur-spangled banner, O 1 long may it wave, O'er the lung of tho free and tho homo of tho brave. Aud where is that band who so vatintingly swore, That the havoc of war and the battle's con fusion A Lome and a countiy should leave us no more t Their blood has washed out their fonl foot steps pollution, No refuge could save the hireling and slave From the terror of fight, or the gloom of tho grave ; And tho star-spangled banner in triumph doth, wave. O'er tho land of the free and tbo borne of brave. O '. thus bo it ever when freemen shall stand Between their loved Lome und the wars do solution, Bless'd with victory and peace, may the Heaven-rescued land, I'ruito the power that hath made and pre served us a nation ! Then conquer we tuuit, wheu our causo it i3 just, And this Im our motto: 'In God is our trust 1' And thu star.spangled banner in triumph shall wave, O'er tho land of the free aud Iho homo of the brave.

DECLARATION OP IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1T7G ; The unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United Stales of America, When, in Ibe courso of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve ilia political bonds wiucu lmve connected them wilh another, and to ossutno among the powers ol the earth the separate und equul station to which the laws of nature and of na ture's God eu title them, a decent resnoet to the opinions or mankind requires thut they should declare the cau.es which impel them to the separation. . We hold these troths lo be self evident. (but all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unnli- enable rights that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are iueti tuted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed t that when ever any form of government becomes de ftructive of these ends, it it tbe right of tho people to alter or abolish it, and to inalitu a new government, laying itt fouudatiou on such principles, and organising itt powers in sucb form, at to tberu shall teem most likely lo tiled their surety and happiness. Pru dence, indeed, will dictato, tbat government Ions established should out be changed for light and transient causes j and, accordingly, all experience batb tbowa, tbat mankind aro more disposed to antler while evils are s.ifferub'io, thun to right themselves by abol ishing the forms to which they are accustom ed. But when a lung train of abuses nnd usurpations, pursuing invariably tho same object, evinces a design to reduce them nnder atuoltito despotism, it is their duty to throw oir such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. Such bos been tho patient stilTerance of these Colonies; nnd snch is now the necessity which con strains them to alter tho former system of government. The history of tho present king of Great Britain, ia a history of repented injuries nnd usurpations, all having in direct object, the establishment of an absolute ty ranny over these states. To provn this, let facts be submitted to a candid world : Ho has refused bis to assent laws the most w holesome and necessury for the public good. He has forbidden bis governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation, till his ascent should bo obtained ; and when so sus pended, be has utterly neglected to attend to them. He bin refused to pass other laws for tho accommodation of large, districts of peoplo unless theso ppoplo would relinquish ihe right of representation in tiio legislature a right inestimable to them and formidable lo tyrants only. llo has called together legislative bodies nt places unusual, uncomfortable, ntid distant from tho repository of their public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into a compliance with his measures. He hus dissolved representative houses re peatedly, for opposing, with manly firmness, his invasions on tho rights of the people. Ilo has refused, for a long timo alter such dissolutions, to causo others to bo elected ; whereby the legislativo powers, incapablo of annihilation, b.ive relumed to the people at largo for their exerciec. the stulo remaining in t lie meantime exposed to nil tho dangers of invasion from wiliiiu und convulsions with in. Ho hif endeavored to prevent tho popula- lion of there states ; for lhat purpose ob- j structing tho laws Tor naturalization of for- I ligners ; refusing to pa others to encourage their migration Lither, and nisitig the con- ! ditions of new appropriations of land. I Ho has obstitii-led tho administration oT ! justice, by refusing his assent to laws for cs- i lublishing judiciary powers. j He has made judges dependent on his will I alone, for tho tenure of their offices and the I amount and payment of their salaries. He haa erected a multitude of officers, and I sent hither swarms of officeis, to harrass our people, und eat out their substar.ee. llo has kept among us in times of peaco standing armies, without the cnscut of our legislatures. Jlo has allectcd to render the military inne pendendent of, and superior to, the civil pow or. Ho has combined with others to subject ns to a jurisdiction foreign t' our constitution, und unacknowledged by our luws ; giving tt i s iiisetit to their acts of pretended legislation : For qurtcrin lare bodies of armed troops among us : For protecting them, ly a mock trial, from punishment, for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of thebu states : For cutting oil our trade wilh all parts of the world : For imposing taxes on us v.ithcut onr con sent : For depriving us, in r.:ony cases, of the ben- slit of trial by jury : For transporting ns beyond 6oa?, to be tried for pretended oD'enct'3 : For abolishing Iho freo system of English laws in a neighboring province, establishing therein an nrbitary government, nnd enlarg ing its boundaries so as to render it at once an example ntid ft instrument for introdu cing the same absolute rule iuto these colo nies : For taking away onr charters, abolishing our roost valuable laws, and altering funda mentally, the forms of our government : For suspending our own legislatures anil decluring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever: Ho has abdicated government here, by do daring ns out of his protection, and waging war against ns. Ho has plundered our sens, ravaged onr coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. Ho is at this time transporting large ar mies of foreigu mercenaries, to complete tho work of death, desolation and tyrunuy alrea dy begun, with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy, scurcely paralleled in tho most bar barous, ages, and totally unworthy the head of a civilised nation. He has coostraiuod our fellow citizens, ta ken coptlve on tho high seas, to bear arms against their country, to become the execu tioners (.f their frieuds und bretheru, or to fall themselves by their hands. He has excited domestic, insurrections against us, and but endeavored to biing on the inhabitants of our froutieis, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rulo of warfare is an undistinguished debtruction or all ugce, sexes and conditions. In every stage of theso oppression we Lave petitioned' for redress in the most bumble terrus ; only by repeated injury. A prince, whose chnructer in iLus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unDt to be the ruler of a free people. Nor have wo been wanting in attention lo our British brethern. We have warned them from timo to timo or attempts by their logU. ature lo extend an unwarranlublo jnrisd.c tion over us. Wo lmve reminded ihetn of tho circustances ot our emigrulion und set tlement here. We buve appealed to their native justice and magnanimity und wo have conjured them, by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpation?, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to tho voice of justice und of consanguin ity. We must theiefote acquiesce in the ne cessity which denounces our separation, und bold them, us we hold tbo rest of uiunkiud, eneiiiii s in icarin peace, f irm!. We, therefore, the representatives of the United Stoles of America in general con gress assembled appealing to the supreme Judge ot the world, for tho rectitude of our intentions, do in tho name and by ll.e au thority or the good people of these United Colonic! are, and of right ought to be, free and independent slates ; that they are ab solved from ull allegiance to the British crown aud that all political connexion between them and tbe state of Great Britain, is, and ought to be, totally dissolved i and that OS free aud independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract uilian ce, establish commerce, and to do all other act! and things whicli imiepc ineni fiu may of right do. And Tor the support cflhis declaration, with a firm reliance on tba pro tection of Divine l'rovidence, we mutually pledge to each other ot' mm, ot a rwrvris tVD COB SACft'D HOKOItt. Jon Hancock.

There is no excuse eitlcr for such women it is tho duty of every lady in this nine teenth century to bu able to speak, spell and irrii'c! correctly, and if our social edicts wero mere stringent on theso points, and less so in tho matters of dreg., we 6hould havo muny more refined, cultivated women, than society is at present blessed with. Not that we wuut our women metamorphosed into "blues," or that it M necessary tiiey should be versed in tiio dead languages, ut.d discourse very learn edly on geology, or trigonometry; and wo man looks quite as attractive kneading bis cait at ber kitchen table as she dots in a cqeiiiical laboratory.

But an ignorant, vuhjar woman is a dis graco to herself, particularly when the affect! to be a lady, nnd pass for wliut she is not, which is usually attained most aQ'cctuul'y through dress. maker! and milliners. Wo must bo pardoned for oli'ering a word of sincero advice to those pretty, graceful wo men oue meets everywhere, and admires un til they open their months to speak. Devote a little loss time to your flounces and French flowers, aud do buy u gramn.ar, and study it. Arthur's Mnnai:e. From Dr. Bcccbcr's Lifo Thoughts. Thero aro more professing Christains who are secretly vexed on account of the cha rity they have to bestow, and the self-denial they have to use. If, instead of tho smooth prayers which tbey do pray, ihey would speak out tho thing which they really feel, they would rny, when they go home nt night, "O Lord, I met a poor wretch of yours to day, a miserable, unwashed brat, and 1 gave him six pence, aud I havo been sorry for it ever sinco or O Lord, if 1 had not sigued those articles, of faith, 1 might have goue to the tLeatre thi) eveuing. Y'oiir religion deprives me of a great deal of enjoyment, but I menn to Ftick toil. There's no other wuy of getting into Heawn, I suppose." Tha sooner such men are cut of tbo church the better. To Destroy Ants. In somo gardens tho ants become intolerable pests, and almost every kiud of remedy has been resorted to witdoutefiectiog their entire disludginctit. They are sometimes very distrtictive to n garden and especially to flower borders. Wa saw a new remedy published, Rome days ago, which we havo mislaid ; but it is, simply, to dig out a portiun of the ground infested by them, build a fire in the exenvution and nllow it to burn for some time. It is said to drivo them away effectually. If this shall prove to do so, we aro suro to be heartily thanked hy many for printing it. Uermat.town Tele grufh. An Unnatcrai. FATttrri.
