My God, thou kDowest mv heart,"
And every thought therein is known to thee !

To know that l nou wilt do the best lor me ;
When anxious thoughts arise.

Still let ine not forget to thank Thee, Lord,
And so, thro' all my lite

W hate'er my prayers may be.
Thou frrauteet only what la best for me !
And I am patient Lord,
Since i may tell my wishes all to Thee. .
A litlle child, with her bright blue eyes.
And huirlike golden spray,
But on the rock by the steep cliff's foot :
As the ocean eobed away.
And she longed for the milk-white shining foam
As it danced iu the shingles' hum, -
Ami sti-etubed out ber bawl, and tottered fast,
'io bring the white feathers home. ,
And still as she strayed the tide ebbed fast,
And the gleaming foam laugliedon. ...
And the wnite DuU shrunk from the tiny feet,
And the little l'at hands caught none.
She sat wearily down by the steep cliff's foot
Till tbe waves seemed to change their mind.
And the white foam flowed to her as she sat,
As enough 'twould at last be kind.
An 1 the fluff played over her soft white feet,
And the feathers flew up to ber chin.
And tbe soft loving waters kissed her lips,
Audi carried dead child in. .

Inwardly my heart it weeping :

With my taking leave of thee.
For I had to leave thee, dearest.
And I knew that tbouwouldstdie ;
Thou was like the dying forest,
Like the parting summer L

My mother's voice ! now often creeps
its cadence ou my lonely hours.
Like healing on the winfs of sleep,

While 'wintering pleasures madly fly.
But in the still, unbroken air.
Her gentle tones come stealing by ; '
And years of sin and manhood tlee.
And leave me at my mother's knee,

Beneath a moonlit sky of spring.
When earth was garnished like a bride.
And night hail on her silver wing ;
When bursting buds and dewy grass.
And waters leupingto the light,
And all that makes the pulses pass - -
With wilder fleetness, thronged the nights
When all was beauty, then have I,
With friends on whom inv love is flung
Like myrrh on the winds of Araby,
Gazed up where evening's lump is hung.
And when the beauteous spirit there'
Fin u over all its golden chain, -My
motiier's voice came on the air
Like the light dropping of the rain ;
And, resting on some silver star
The spirit of a bended knee,
I've poured a deep ami fervent prayer
'that our eternity might be
To rise in heaven, like stars by night f ,
And tread a living path ofligbu
A little elbow leans upon yonr knee,
Your tired knee, that has so much to bear ;
A child's dear eyes are lookiug lovingly
From underneath a thatch of tangled hair.
Perhaps you donot heed the velvet touch
Ol'wtim, moist Angers folding yours so tight ;
Yen d not prize this blessing over-much,
You almost are too tired to pray tonight.
But it is blessedness ! A year ago '
I did not see it as I do to-day
We are so (lull and thankless, and too slow
To catch the sunshine till it slips away.
And now it seems surpassing strange tome,
That while I wore the badge of motherhood,
1 did not kiss more oft, and tenderly,
The little child that brought me only good. " .
And if, some night, when yon sit down to rest,

RS. WALLACE stood, regard
mg witn an air or pride two
mammoth stone jars, filled to
the Driiu avi tn tlie sweetest and
gohlenest of fall butter. She was a mar
vellous dairy-woman, and though Mrs,
Livingston had several personal servants
at the house, the Wallaces still lived at
the cottage, and had the general super
vision ot tlie estate; mat is, tner agricul
tural nortion of it. "
A shadow fell across the window, and
aroused her trorn her pleasant contem
plation. ' Looking tip she ' beheld the
good-natured face of Asa ?Lo we,1 Miss
Livihgston's lad-of-all-work,' looking in
at the open window, and regarding her
with a quizzical smile;
'Doesn't look fit for the pigs to eat,
does it?" saitl Asa, with a tantalizing
Mrs. Wallace made aim at his head
with the churn-flasher, but he suddenly
" ducked," and it went straight into a
young colony of cabbage plants that
were hardly able to hold up their beads
scattering death and devastation in
their ranks.
' '"Oh dear me! Whatever will Wil
liam say ; His beautiful green Savoys
that he thought so much of, too! Asa
Lowe, you ought to be ashamed of your-
sein" exciaimea inn vexeu woman.
"I didn't do it, Mrs. Wallace. You
can't sav I did. . If 1 hadn't dodged you
might have killed me. What's a cab-
basre head compared to mine?"
. "Xot much difference I'll confess,"sbe
replied, a smile struggling to her face,
"They both belong to one genus, but
are different species., cimeriug prinu
pally in their naoit 01 growtn, ana tne
color of their foliage one being red, and
the other green."
Asa looked up to where the voice pro
ceeded from, as he slowly replied: -
"I ain't a parasite, any way Miss
Annie, growing on trunks of old trees."
"That's beciuse you don't know
what's nice. It's deligbtl'ul up here,
and just see! if you won't dodge I'll
throw you this 'lady's sweating" they
are most gone, you see."
"Throw away, but don't aim at the

is nice" catching the apple. .'-Now,
Miss Annie; I shall have to trouble you
tocoine down. My mistress sent me up
hero with express orders for your mother
and yourself to come to Lintlenwold to
day. She bade me say that stie was at
-leisure, and should esteem It a lavor."
"Certainly, Asa; tell your mistress we
shall be pleased to come;" ana Mrs
Wallace hastily set about maJdng prep
arations for her visit to the "great

ber perch in the old gnarled tree that
shaded the spring, aud donned her
pretty blue "barege and -white 'sash, and
stood of! the porch'awaitln her mother:'
Miss Livingston was very gracious
that day, and toot tbetn into the drawing-room,
where the family portraits
were. She had an object hi that,- how
ever, as presently appeared. After a
little desultory conversation she eame at
once to the subject.
"Toi prqmjsb ine; ., Mr4.' Wallace,
when I first came here, that sometime
you would give me the history of my
uucle SlrTtaoraas's family. . I have
been so busy I have not found opportu
nity, at least when I felt like listening.
But I am in the tinood to-day, and if you
are not needed at home, so that there
need be no interruptions, it will please
me to bear What Oil know coucerniug
"There is nothing to hinder that 1
know. ' Mr. Wallace has gone to market
with vegetables, and won't be back till
uight. Aud Arthur," she added, with
a little touch of pride in her tones, "is
to be admitted to the bar to-day."
A swift glow of pleasure lighted up
the haughty face of the fatly of Linden
wold. A softer flush stained the exquis
ite cheek, but she, did uot forget to vast
a qi-lct searching' 'glance "toward the
unconscious Annie, who stcod with fol
ded arms before ber favorite picture of
the Lady Alice.
: "I congratulate you," she said in the
suayest er voices.- "He fe not yonr oiok
son, I believe."
"Oh no. , But I couldn't love him any
better if he were; but perhaps he may
be some day," with a meaning glance at
Annie, whose fair cheek instantly suf
fused with blushes.
Sit was only a little-word, but some
how it seemed to contain whole volumes
of meaning. -It struek the sensitive
heart of Annie "with a dead, heavy chill,
and even Mrs. Wallace noted the pecu
liar intonation, but she continued :
"It is nigh fifteen years ago that Wil
liam went to the States on some busi
ness connected with tbe farm, for Sir
Frederic. It was late in the season, and
the autumn storms were unusually se
vere that vear. Their sloop was over
taken by -terrible" gale oit.the return
trip, 'i'hey were just off Eastport, but
the height of the gale did not reach them
until they were off Garinet Bock Light
which perhaps you don't know is inten
ded to warn vessels off a very dangerous
range of rocks and shoals, which ex
tend along the coast for some distance.
It was' a terrible nighty I never slept a
wink, for I was momently expecting
him, and if it had not been for Annie,
who was scarce two years old, 1 should
have gone to the city, despite the storm.
Oh Miss Livingston! you ' can never
know in what a fearful agony of sus
pense and dread I clasped my child to
in v bosom, expecting she was fatherless !
As soon as it was light, Sir Frederic
rode into town himself. Ob. the long
hours of that dreadful morning! At
last 1 could endure It no longer, and as
the gale had -somewhat abated, and- the
rain almost entirely ceased, I wrapped
Annie in a thick shawl, and taking her
in my arms, started tor town. I had
uot eaten or slept for twenty-four hours,
yet I battled with the elements with the
strength of a giant. I remember, in a
vague sort of way, of seeing men blown
along by the wind, occasionally catch
ing at a post, or tne corner ot a duuu
ing, to take breath, and then, whirling
on again. Presently I saw for I was
straining my eyes for some glimpse of it
Sir Frederic's carriage coming down
Germain street. It was a long way off
too far to see anything plainly, and the
suspense just crazed me. I started on a
swift run, and when they first saw me
they thought 1 was an escaped lunatic;
and I did look wild and haggard enough,
expect, uut 1 looked, and saw Wil
liam sitting on the back seat with Sir
Frederic, aud then well, then I don't
remember anvthinir distinctly, until 1
found invself in Lady-Alice's own cham
ber, and her sweet face bending over
me, and her lovely blue eyes swimming
in tears. w imam was cnaung my
hands, and he looked just like a ghost
himself. They said I had fainted, and
perhaps 1 did ; but it was the nrst and
last time.'. As soon as I was strong
enougti to sit up and look round, l saw
a little pale, drenched face lying among
tne. pillows ou tne . lounge that very
lounge which is stored away among the
rubbish in the north gable. The face
startled me,- it looked so weird and
ghostly ; and I pointed to it and tried to
speak, but my lips were so stiff and cold
that tney would uot move.
"It is only a poor little fellow, Mary,
from a vessel which was wrecked on the
Murr Ledges, and every soul on board
save him lost! I tied a rope round me
and made the sailors lower me down, and
picked blm off a' broken spar, where he
was clinging with the whole of his tinv
strength. He could have held out but a
few minutes longer. The vessel was
reeling' and pitching awfully, and the
pilot had as much as he could do to keep
of the rocks, but I was determined to
save him, and I did! Are you sorry,
Mary? His mother was lost, and his
father was already dead.- Can you find
room for him in your heart r"
"As if I could not find room for tbe
whole world in my heart, then! And
though I was very weak, and had to
bold on the wall for support, I made my
way to that lounge, and took, the little
drenched lace to my bosom, and kissed
the little quivering lips, and vowed be
fore Heaven that I would be as true a
mother to tills little orphan, as I was to
my own child. And I think I have
kept my vow, and I could not well help
it, for in every one of these years he has
been growing more Into my heart, until
I say, as I did when you first asked me,
1 love mm as it he were mv own."
There were tears in the beautiful
eyes of the fair lady of Linden wold, and
Mrs. Wallace thought she never saw
ner look so lovely oeiore. She never
saw her look so' again. '
But 1 beg your pardon." Mrs. Wal
lace exclaimed.' suddenly recolleetlns
herself. "I have been talking of my
self, instead of telling you what you
aesireu to Know."
"There is no pardon needed. I thank
you for tellingme Avhat you have. But
x nave a uttie curiosity to know about
my cousid Clarence, Sir Thomas's
youngest sou.. I have , never heard vou
speak of him, and I do not find his pic
ture among the family portraits, x lind
his name, with tbe record ot his birth.
in the old family: Bible; and also the
record of his death, but with neither
time nor place affixed. What was there
about it or about him, rather, that
there is such a strange silence main
tained?" "Well, it was never talked about much
at the house, but of course I knew about
it. It was the old story of the younger
son, and Clarence was very high-spir-
lteu, anu tne manliest injustice iretteu
and galled him terribly. He brooded
over it until in a fit of desperation, he
resolved to go to the States; to cut
loose from all communication with his
family, and alone and unaided, make or
mar his own fortunes.
"This project he was verv careful not
to broach to his father or brother, but
he made me his confident. I was a mere
child, and he made me take the most
solemn oaths that I would not reveal
his purpose, and sortie first his father
knew oi it, he naa enectea ins escape
He was scarcely twenty a brave, fear
less,, high-spirited, handsome fellow as
one often sees. He was a true Livingston
too iou resemble him strangely while
Frederic afterward, upon the death of
his father, Sir Frederic resembled his
mother morA and I always thought Sir
Thomas was more fond of hiin for just
mat reason.
"Well, Sir Thomas was dreadfully

gone,' and I was forced to tell "what I
knew of it. I remember now bow fright-

could not speak intelligibly for a long
time- There was no effort made to re
call blm for a long while, and nothing
whatever was. heard of him. But after
a time, carefully worded advertisements
were sent to the leading American pa
pers, but without eliciting any reply.
Porbably they never reached him. And
Sir Thomas died, with the fate of his
youngest born shrouded in mystery. It
was the thought of his closing life; but
the longing remained unsatisfied. Some
five years after his death Sir Frederic
received a letter from hi3 brother. I
never saw the letter, and do not know
what became of it, but I know that Sir
Frederic answered it, begging him to
come back, and offering to share the
fortune with him if he would come.
But he never cams. About a year after,a
paper marked at a certair death was sent
to him. Then it was given out that
Clarence Livingston had died; in the
States. But, it was not until after Sir
Frederic's death that I knew he had
borne another name in tbe home of his
adoption ; what it was I never knew,
Olive Livingston sat awhile in a rev
erie, and then asked, abruptly :
"Was he ever married ?"
"No. That is, I don't think he was.
There was never anything sail I about it.
But I declare! it's near four o'clock, and
I haven't thought of them blessed 'pigs
to-day, till this minute; so, if you'll ex
cuse me, I'll go home now." If you
thinkof anything elseany time that you
want to ask, I shall be happy to tell you
what I can about it."
"Thank you. You must let Annie
run up sometimes. It is lonely here
with only the servants, and I have few
"She will like to come, I am sure, and
yon arc very kind," and Annie smiled,
and looked much pleased at the invita
tion, and promised thit she would come.
As soon as they were gone, Miss Liv
ingston called Asa and went up into the
north gable,and after considerable effort,
succeeded in extricating a faded, green
brocade lounge, and had it carried into
her room Hhe one that was formerly
Lady Alice's. .
"Well, she is a queer one, and no mis
take," soliloquized Asa. "What in
time did she want of that old thing in
there, for?"
Jtsut after Asa bad gone down, the
haughty - Miss Livingston knelt beside
the faded lounge, and laid her proud
head on it, and something very much like
a tear glistened in the tender eyes. She
passed her White jeweled hand caress
ingly over it, and dusted it carefully
with her own lair fingers. Something
fell from the lining as she brushed it.
She took it up ; it was a sealed letter bear
ing Sir Frederic's superscription. Me
chanically she unfolded it. The first
word rivited her attention. She read
on, growing white and rigid as death as
she read, and when she came to tbe sig
nature, sue cried as it in sharp pain.
Then she arose like one half dazed, and
going to a little writing-desk, pressed
a curious spring,and deposited it within ;
and white and trembling, threw open
the window and leaned out.
Fire! fire!" rang out in sudden
sharpness on the heavy silence and
gloom of midnight, it ran up and down
the deserted streets, and the surround
ing hills caught it up and echoed it back
to the bay. Windows were hastily
thrown up, and numberless heads, in
every shape of dishabille, were thrust
out. Firemen were running toward
their different engine-houses,, there was
a hurried "limbering np," and the famil
iar rattle of machines over the rocky
streets. A window was thrown np at
the Wayerly, just as the "Emerald," Xo.
4, went lumbering down the street.
"Where is the nre, boys?" shouted a
"Up near the bead of Carmarthan
street." And a score of voices caught it 1
up and repeated, 'fire! fire!! Carmar
than street!" "All Carmarthan street
in flames!" and the like.
The window at the Waverly was
speedily closed, and almost immediately
the Rev. Paul Russel issued from the
door, and joined the stream of people
that were now pouring in that direction.
A sudden turn brought him in full
view of the flames, which gleamed with
a ghostly, yellowish glare, through the
dense clouds of fog and smoke that en
veloped the city.
It was a large, square building, occu
pied as a boarding-house, in which the
fire originated, but two or three smaller
buildings In its immediate vicinity had
already caught from it, and the wildest
excitement and consternation prevailed
througnout the entire neighborhood.
"There's two girls in the back third
story yet," somebody cried.
"Who are they?"
"It's- them two English girls who
work at Breeu & Sons. Everybody
else- is down, and it's too late to save
"JSot if they are alive, man! What
are you thinking of, to let two women
perish without an ettort to save them!
This Way boys." And the lithe form of
rant Kusset - disappeared around tne
back side of the burning building.
The wind had blown the hie a'vav
from that portion of the building, and
having originated in the basement, the
back third story was comparatively uu
irijnred, although smoke was beginning
to issue from the windows, at one of
which a white-robed figure was
standing, motionless and speechless with
A ladder was hastily procured, but it
was not so easy a thing to mount it. The
heat from the lower portion of the build
mg was intense, and burning boards
and shingles were tailing in every direc
tion. The firemen, knowing better tlie
danger, shrank from attempting it.
There was an instant's pause and Paul
Russel sprang to the ladder.
"stop!" cried a voice Trom the crowd
It's my young ladies, and if anybody's
coin' to save them I am." And Tiinmy
JJryne drew back tne rector with his
sturdy arm, and amid the shouts and
warnings of the crowd, sprang up the
ladder like a cat.
"Ddn't be frightened, little gfrl," he
shouted, halfway up the perilous height,
"Faith ! you're too sweet and pretty for
the ugly nre to touch '."
. In tbe meantime l'aul Kussell was
preparing for emergencies. He bor
rowed a thick coat from a bystander and
sprinkled it literally with water, and
then buttoned it to his chin. Then he
took a silk handkerchief, and making it
very wet, bound it carefully about
head and' face,
Tiinmy Brvne had reached the win
dow, but, instead of taking the lady and
descending with her. they both disap
pearea inside, uut it was only lor
mcmcnt, as he almost immediately reap
peareu, bearing a light burden, care
fully wrapped in blankets, in his arms
A wild snout went up from the crowd
and somebody proposed three cheers for
Ximmy Jiryne, which were given with
a will, tor Ximmv was a general lavor
Ite; being as brave and generous, as he
was honest and warm-hearted. But the
cruel flames had no feeling for hiin
notwithstanding, and the red-hot cin
ders fell on his face and hair, and caught
to flame the collar ot his checked shirt,
and the wind baffling round blew whole
clouds of .-aoke ami name into lug nos
trils, but he persevered, until whei
within a few feet of the bottom, a se
ond-story window loosened from the
sash, fell with a crash immediately upon
ins liead. He toppled aud would have
fallen, but strong arms caught him aud
bore him, with his inanimate burden, to
a place of safety. Though stunned and
bewildered, he had still presence of
mind enough to point back to the win
dow and make frantic gestures to the
crowd. "
'Alas ! they had forgotten there were
two; and iu the excitement of watching
the descent, had not seen the little
white-robed figure s,tlll at the window.
But there was one who had not iorgot i
ten. One who remembered the sweet,
earnest faces" that looked up to him so
trustingly every Sabbath, and whose
clear, pure voices were always beard in
tbe responses. And so when the crowd
turned their attention once more to the
window, they saw Paul Russel nearly to
the top of the ladder. He had very
thoughtfully provided himself with a'
wet blanket which he threw over the
light undress of the girl, and folded
carefully over her face. It was well he
had taken the precautions he had, for
the front roof had already fallen in, and
the flames were licking with their forked
tongues the doors and ceilings of the
chamber from which he had just taken
the girl, she yielded berselt submis
sively to his directions, only asking
ouce; if "Alice was hurt."
Some one called out, "the ladder is on
fire." Almost immediately he felt it
give aud sway beneath his weight. He
wastenteet from the ground. He drew
his arm a little closer around the muffled
figure, aud leaped to the ground just as
the ladder snapped in two six feet from
the ground, and fell with a crash into
the debris of broken glass and bulling
For a moment there was a dead si
lence. Only the hissing and crack
ling of the flames disturbed
the stillness, and then there
arose simultaneously, from more than a
thousand pair of lungs, a shout that
rang and reverberated through the clef
ted hills and wooded ravines, startling
the night, birds in their secret lairs.
And Tiinmy Brvne, with his hair half
singed off his head, his face and hands
blistered, and his clothes hanging about
hiin in scorched ard blackened tatters,
sat up on the grass and shouted as loud
as any of thein! Timmy had splendid
Arthur St. Orme had stopped in the
city that night at the house of his prin
cipal, Mr. Vanstone. And it was he
who had taken the insensible form of
Alice Clair from the arms of Timmy
Brvne when he fell. Mr. "Vanstone's
house was but a few rods distant, and
there he bore the unconscious girl.
And a little later, Amy, pale and fright
ened, and in a sad state of dishabille,
was borne to the same hospitablo shelter,
for she had begged pitifully to be taken
to Alice.
"I forgot to ask permission, Mrs. Van
stone," Arthur said, after a little of the
excitement had subsided. .
"I should have been very sorry if you
had, Arthur; for it might have implied
a doubt of my humanity."
"Do you think they are injured at
"Xo; although the youngest Alice,
I bciieve her name is still lies in a sort
of stupor. Her sister says she had not
been well for several days. She has a
bad cough, and looks to me as if she was
inclined to consumption. She could not
rouse her, she said, sufficiently to get
her to the window, and the smoke,
which came through the crevices from
the other rooms, seemed to Btifie her and
render her insensible. But Dr. Gray
thinks she will rouse betore morning."
"Do vou know them these Clalrs?"
"I have seen them at church. You
know we worship at St. James. I have
heard that they were orphan girls, who
could not bear to stay in England after
the death of their parents and only
brother, and so emigrated to America,
They have peculiarly sweet, pure faces,
but the younger one looks too Iragile.
"Sewing girls aren't they?"
"Yes, tailoresses. They work for
Breeu & Sous, King street."
"How long have they been in the
"I think we both have reason to re
member the exact date," she replied,
smiling. "They came over in the Ber
muda, at the same time that Miss Liv
ingston of Liudenwold came."
Ah : mat s what limmv Jiryne meant
by his young ladies. I have heard some
thing ot it. borne rivalry between him
md English, I believe."
x es. you see English was fortunate
enough to get the heiress, upon which
lie plumed himself a great deal. But
iimnv insists that though 'Miss Liv-
ngstoii may be a born lady, his young

Now that tlie Territories have assumed

we may better appreciate Thomas H.
Benton's stereotyped advice whenever
young man called on blm at Washing

in one of the departments: "Go to the
Territories, sir; or to one of tbe new
States. Go to Iowa or Missouri ; go to

a quarter section of laud and culture It;
if a mechanic, open a shop and work ;
but don't stay here to burn yourselves out

Do anything but to serve as a slave in
one of these wretched bureaus." Good
advice thirty, forty, even fifty ytsars ago
and better to-day. The men who went

off much of tbe superior material of the

One of the oldest " and "most " widely
known Methodist preachers in America
died on Wednesday, at his home, .near
leasant i'lains, Sangamon county; 111.
X'eter Cartwright was eighty-seven years
old. He was a native of Amherst comity,
v a., and was born in 178o,' two years
after tlie close or the Revolutionary war,
While he Was still a child his parents re
moved with him to Kentucky. His early
years were spent in that wild frontier
land, where the war-wnoop ot the sav
age often aroused his father ana ins
neighbors' to the defence "of their' lives
and homes.' Peter was scarcely sixteen
years old when be was converted by an
itinerant preaeer, and became a member
of the Methodist Episcopal Cbnrcb. "The
event determined the' career of his whole
life. He conceived the idea that he had
been called to preach the gospel in the
wilderness, and almost immediately he
entered upon that duty. In his auto
biography, published about fifteen years
ago, he relates many interesting and
often amusing incidents of his early la
bors in the backwoods. Like - many of
the men ot his time and section, he had
an iron constitution ana a strongly
marked individuality, and was a bold,
courageous,' and zealous worker, tie
feared neitner man' nor tne devil, ana
tor his cause was ready at any time to
fight both if they stood in his way. His
speech was homely, but it was earnest,
and went straight to the hearts of his
rough audiences, xie was heard to say a
few years ago that he had received into
the church no fewer than 12,000 persons
and that: m inS : long career he had
preached 15,000 sermons,
in the eany pioneer days he naturally
met some hard characters, who, insti
gated by the adversary, would endeavor
to bring disgrace upon him. lie tells Id
his autobiography that once a brutal fel
low threatened ' to whip him. Peter
said, ' Well, sir, I never like to live in
dread, it you really intend to whip me
come and do it now." Tlie man con
tinued to bluster, whereupon' the fight
ing preacher, dismounting from his
horse, walked up to him and said, "XoW,
sir. you nave to whip me, as you threat
ened, and stop cursing me, or 1 will put
you in the river aud baptize you in the
name of the devil, for surely you belong
to him." 1 his cowed the bully. An
anecdote is also related which illustrates
his .singular boldness and independence;
He was preaching before the Nashville
Conference,' when the time-servlng"cler-
gyman whose pulpit he occupied, seeing
uenerai Jackson standing in the aisle,
leaned over and said in a loud w hisper,
" General Jacksou has come in. General
Jackson hascoine in." Wbo-isGene-ralJackson

years in the Old - Western. : .Conference,
eight years in .the Tennessee Conference,

church, and was , delegated to General

recorded of him that in all the years of

dismissed for a time for misdemeanors of
auy kind. In 1856 he publislied the
story ot his lite lu a volume entitled
cVutobiograDhv of Peter Cartwriehti
the Backwoods Preacher." This book
had a wide circulation and made the old
man better known in the East, where he
seldom had visited. During the last few
years the feebleness ot advanced years

It w ill be remembered that the New

one hundred thousand-dollars to any
person . who - would, construct a - steam
canal boat, capable of carrying -200 tons
of freight from Buffalo to New York at a
cheaper rate than towing by horses,: the
average speed to be three miles per hour.
.Numerous experiments have been made
and a boat has just been-completed at

the prize. The boat and engine were de
signed by Mr. William Baxter, ot New

five miles an hour on the riyer.. ; Three
hils of coal will furnish power sufficient
to move the boat from Troy to Buffalo,
A horse boat averages nine trips a season
a trip meaning the passage between New

across the street, when these two men
came up and stopped them, when the
women- cried murder. Une rurnan
knocked Mrs. Allen down, .while the
other escaped. Mrs.' Allen's screams
brought'' her husband, but before he
could help her he was struck down by a
huge stone in the rascal's hand and left
for dead." The roughs then ran away;"

A spirited Red Biding Hood, aged 12
years, was met by. two wire workers
While carrying some food to her friends
working in a field near St. Andrasz
(Hungary). The two gypsies demanded
of tlie girl to let them have the provis
ions, but were stoutly, resisted by the
girl, when the monsters seized her and
tied every limb ot her body with wire
so tight that ibe flesh was cut into,
and then tiiey passed a wire through
both Hps of the little, sufferer and twist-
d -it twice to rending. , This horrible
martyrdom was enacted in a maize field
where the fiends consumed the meals so
valorously defended-, The owner of the
field happened to pass by, and, hearing a
taint moaning, the horrible sight soon
opened upon him. Retreating hastily to
fetch help.be fortunately met the com
missaries and two pandours, who were
chasing vagrants. The monsters were
taken'iuto custody a few hours after
ward. A smith had to be caueu to open
the wire net by which the interesting
martyr was tortured, but, sad to say,
wheu the
wire was extracted trom the
I lips the poor girl breathed her last.
