So pretty a song Must die ere -long, Like a too, too sharp delight ! THE PICAROON, OR The Pirate at Sea. Anal this was the end of the yarn which JIartingill had been telling his comrades, arouud the windlass of the Lively Peggy, as my story opens. 'Have you seen or heard anything of that 'tarnal craft or het skipper this trip, ho' V asks one of the listeners, as his pipe is be ing ended. 'Yes,' replied Jack, in a low earnest tone, 'I have, and so has Master Paul. He and I was strolling about Spanish Tows afore we sailed, and wo came full upon 'Him this Don devil pasco t" asked one of them. 'Ay, my lad, him 1' replied the mari. ner, 'but so disguised that no one but ne would have known him. I did, and I saw that he knew it, and that same night, you recollect, young Freeman, was brought oa board with a flesh wound, that only wanted nearer te.have closed up hii log forever, and if our messmate here,' indi cating the man still peering to leeward un der the fore-course, 'if he , has seen a craft, its that infernal Black Snake in full pursuit, and Don Pasco on board, who knewi wo have got specie on frieght ; and so my lads, if wo have to fight -mind you do it to save your throats from being ilit or from 'Sail ho P cried a voice from the look oat aloft. V Whereaway?' demanded Paul who had I charge of the deck. fOnour weatber-'iuarter, and edging, down with every .ttitch of .canvass set.' 'And bringing a snorter, too along with her muttered JackMartingill and there was an instant move among the men.

A t -X cissoJj Tk -m v intact, as the gale had possibly passed by her., .ffhe next moment the Lively Peggy was in Egyptian right. Martiogili was by this time at the helm; and even his strength could, not keep the helm up suffi ciently to prevent a- sea from breaking over and washing away-,a dozen of the crew, with the broken bulwarks and the stoven boats, and depriving the ship the uso 'of Captain Transom's services, he being cast against the bulwarks of the quarter-deck with a broken arm. While some of the crew carried him below, Paul closed the companion hatch ; and besides himself clinging lo the weather-rigging, and Jack Martingill at the helm, there were now on ly half a dozen cowering and bronzed sea men forward to manage the big ship. All that follows is like a night-mare dream, and took, place in less time than3 we have taken to describe it. A tumult of thun der , a cataract of rain, a blinding chaos of lightning, added to the sublime horrors of the scene, -and the mad drivingof the ship was enough to unsettle a quiet brain. But the picture, toe, had a sublimity about it scarcely to be arrived at by mere descrip tion. Rushing glories and hurrying ter rors spectrally blended themselves in com binations sublime and chaotic fierce and loud. Black yawning, chasms with gleam ing flakes and feathery cloud of spray, that died like flashes broke on both sides of the bounding ship, whose stout thews and ten dons of tried and proved cordage as yet gavo not way a moment. If the appalled youth looked astern, he seemed to be hur rying from the gloom and fires of Tophet into other glooms and outer darknesses, that were tremenduous from a sense of their vastness and expansion, which made themselves felt to him. Up and down, with long descending and corresponding altitudes of ascent went the vat fabric, whese ghostly sails in the lightness of ele ments were yt strangely perceptible. Looking to windward, he discerned the shadowy phautom of the. schooner, far through the driving mist, exageratel in her proportion by the density of the medi um through which he viewed her. There was abeut her so much of the superaaural, which in fact tinged everything the sky, the sea, and ship whose deck he trod, as she careened in the midst of keen lightning flashes, so that the whole northern and eastern hemisphere at times was lighted up. extending whole mountain ranges in length, and reaching from the very zenith to the sea, as added an occult and lurid grandeur whtch was unapproachably aw ful, as it was a sublimity which the seui bowed itself before and bent lowly dewn. There she appeared in the darkness ; aad the lightnings, when tney flamed forth again, showed her no more, and this must, Paul thought, be the sail that had been seen ere ihe tempest br oke upon them. While gazing across the sea, through the roar of wind and rush of the waves, Paul thought he saw relieved by a bright and fiery belt of light, the same- craft that at least an hour ago had gone past him to the windward an hour ago. Ashe gazed the factbecaue more decided. The dead ly foe came stealthily an steadily on. A6 she plunged ever and anon, he saw that from stem to stern, the decks of the schoon er were illumined with battle lanterns ; and there lifce'stataes east in swarthy and bearded bronze, as if sailiag iato action, the men .were at their guns, and the cap tain trimpctin hand, stood in the weather rigging, his glesmy eyes fixed on the prey upon which, panther-like he was now leap ing. Paul dieV, noc hail her could he even have made his puny voice" heard in1 that infernal crescendo of found in order to know what it was that thus bore down on bkn. Upintheair, onthe 'mighty crent cthrbmnisetert sea, clomb is merchant man, and frost this mountain height Paul gaied downipoi thtdtcksof the pirate. Her brass, ras. polished and .gleaming, ' " - . her belaying pins, capstanhead, and quarter-deck railings of the same materi al ; the decks snowy white, marked . with black paralell lines, like ebony let 'into iyory ; the trim tautness of her rig, her ex quisite mould and form, and the crowds of armed and motionless men at the guns and quarters, and ready at a word or sign, to fly to tack or sheet, all this, illuminated with lightning.above and the lanterns on tne deck., formed a picture which in its sinister harmony, he never after could forget. So emphatic in itself, and presen ted to .him in a fashion so despotic, it be came ins manner engraved upon his mind so that no time could obliterate it. In another moment she would have crossed the bows of the Lively Peggy, but that a wild and deadly' design came into the brain' of the young man, as if Satan had been standing by his side ready to care for his own, and so suggested the idea to him. If the merchantman held the same course, both vessels would pass without touehing ; though as they stood in their relative posi tion for a brief immesurable instant, Paul fancied a plummet from the bowsprit-end would have touched the decks under his cutwater. His design was ao seoner form ed than he sprang aft to put it in to execu tion ; without knowing how he got there, he displaced Martingill at the ai ihe wheel, and not being able to cast off the lashing byreeson of the strain upon it, he made one cut, and whiar it spun round as if propelled by jTitanic machinery. Her head went of the wind at once, but that was enough , already he was in the mizzen-rig ging, simultaneously with the act, watch ing the result, while old Jack was flung to the lee side of the poop. The eye of him who ruled the Black Snake beheld in an instant what had bee n done, and the doom that hung over their heads. A terrifnc cry issued from his brazen trumpet, which Paul neither heard nor cared for, as gras ping the stay, he gazed down on the deck where some three or four scare men stood, ready to kill burn, and destroy at com mand. TFith a sense of destruction cir cling them in its unlncky grasp with a blasphemy upon their lips at this unexpec ted result there came also an idea of ven geance. Paul heard the cry of fire given. The roar of the broad-side belching in a cavernous waste, and harmlessly as regar ded the merchantman, mingled with a wild and appaling shriek, rose high in the air, and then there ran through the keel and every timber of the ship a tremulous vibra tion, accompanied by a horrid crash and concussion, that made the youth imagine the deck he stood upoa was splintering in to fragments. On either side of the mer chantman there went pieces of tho wreck, the smashed and shredded remnants ef the late matchless craft. How the merchant ship received help fromaman-of warsveMet, how Paul got praise and promotion, with many other "hows? we here will not state. LovixY.

Mr. Joseph Harris, of .this place, has received a letter from his son John, who belongs to the Kansas Sec " ond, and was in ike battle of Newtonia. He slates that the mest cruel and shocking utrages were committed by the rebels on the bodies of the 9th Wisconsin ; that they were stripped of every article of clothing,-' and in many instances had their throats' cut from ear to ear: that some bodies were left so exposed that the hogs were eating. them. - Such actions as these would disgrace savages, but are the legitimate consequen- c ces of that feeling which prompts these men to attempt the destruction of such a' government as ours.
