[From the Voyage and Adventure of Sir Amyas Leigh, Kt., in the reign of Queen Elizabeth.] Amyas Leigh and his ship's crew have have been sojourning for some time amonj the Indians. On returning from a hunting party he finds two of his men missing. The are supposed to have ta ken to the forest, each with an Indian girl : Amyas was very wroth at the news. '.First, because it had never hap pened before ; he could sny with honest pride, as Raleigh did afterward when he returned from his Guiana voyage, that no Indian women had ever leen the worse for any man of his. He had preached on this point month after month, and be practised what he preach ed ; and now his pride was sorely hurt. Moreover he dreaded offense to the In dians themselves , but on this score the Cacique soon comforted him, telling him that the girls, 60 far as he could find, had gone off of their own free will ; In timating that he thought it somewhat an honor to the tribe that they had found favor in the eyes of the bearded men ; and moreover, that late wars had so 41m Tin AY l1,n Alr vf lliiii man vliAT ( li Jif ujiiiuvi. tuv laufta v biivu mcuf inai witj were glad enough to find husbands for their maidens, and had been driven of late years to kill many of their female infants. This sad story, common per haps, to every American tribe, and one of the chief causes of their extermination, reassured Amyas somewhat ; but he could not stomach either the loss of his men, or their breach of descipline ; and look for them he would. Did any one know where they were ? If the tribe knew, they did not care to tell ; but Ayacanoia, the moment she found out his wishes, vanished in the forest, and returned ia two days, saying that she had found the fugitives ; but she would not show them where they were, unless he promise not to kill them. lie of course, had no mind for so rigorous a ' method ; he both needed the men, and he had no malice against them ; for the ote, Ebswerthy, was a plain, honest, happy-go- lucky sailor, and as good a hand as there was in the crew ; and the other was that same ne'er do well. Will Parracombe, his old school-fellow, who Lad been tempted by the gipsy Jesuit at Appledore, and resisting that bait had made a very fair teamen. So forth Am yas went, with Aycanora as a guide. some five miles upwards along the forest elopes, till the girl whispered," 44 There they aie and At mas pushing him 6elf gently through a thicket of lamboo, beheld a rcenc which, in ssjiite of his wrath, kept him silent, and perhaps sof tened, for a mir.ute.

At its more quiet out fall it was half hidden in huge fantastic leaves and flowering sUms : but near Ihe wa terfall the grassy bank sloped down to wards the stream, and there on palm leaves strewed upon the turf, beneath shadow of the crags, lay the two men whom Amyas sought, and whom, now he had found them, he had hardly heart to wake them from their delicious dream. For what a nest he had found ! air was heavy with the scent of flowers, and quivering with the murmur the stream, the humming of the co!i bris and insects, the cheerful songs ol birds, the gentle cooing of a hundred doves; while now and then, from far away, the musical wail of the sloth, or deep toll of the bell bird came soft ly to the ear. What was not there which or ear could nted, and what which palate could need cither ? For on a rock above, come strange tree, leaning forward, dropped every now and then a luscious apple upon the grass below, and huge wild plantains bent beneath their load of fruit. There, on the stream bank, lay two renegades from civilized They had cast away their clothes, painted themselves, like Ihe Indians, arnotlo and indigo. One lay lazily picking up the fruit which fell close to his ; the other sat with his back against cushion of soft moss, his hands folded lanquidly upon his lap, giving himself to the solt influence of narcotic cocoa- juice, with half-shut dreamy eyes fixed the everlasting sparkle of the water. While beauty, born of murmuring sounds. Did pass into his face. Somewhat apart crouched their two dus ky brides, crowned with fragrant flow but working busily, like true wo for their lords they delighted to One sat plating palm fibres into basket ; the other was boring the stem a huge milk-tree, which rose like some column on the right hand of the its broad canopy of leaves unseen through the dense underwood of laurel bamboo, and betokened only by the rustle far alofl, and by the mellow shades which it batned the whole delicious scene. Amyas stood silent for a while, partly frcm noble shame at seeing two Christian men thus fallen of their own ; partly because, and he would but confess that a solemn calm brooded above that glorious place, to break through which seemed sacrilege even while he thought it duty. Such, thought, was Paradise of old ; such first parents' bridal bower ! Ah ! men had not fallen, he, loo, might have dwelt forever in such a home with whom? He started, nnd shaking ofFtbe spell, advanced sword in hand. women saw him, and sprang to their feet, caught up their long pocumas, leapt like deer each in front of her beloved. There they stood, the deadly tubes piessed to their lips, eyeing him tigresses who protect their young, while every slender limb quivered, not with terror but with rage. Amyas paused, half in admiration, half inpru dence ; for one rash step was death. rush'mg through the canes, Ayacan ora sprang to the front, and shrieked to them in Indian. At the sight of the prophetess the women wavered, and Ay mas, putting on as gentle a face as he could, stepped forward, assuring them in best Indian that he would not harm oue. 44 Ebsworthy, Parracombe ! you grown such savages already, that you have forgotten your captain ? Stand up, men, and salute." Ebswor thy sprang to his feet, obeyed mechani cally, and then slipped behind his bride, if in shame. The dreamer turned head languidly, raised his hand to forehead, and then returned to his contemplation. A) mas rested the point his sword "on the ground, and his hands upon the hilt, and looked sadly and solemnly upon the pair. Ebsworhy broke the sileuce, half repioachfully, half trying ia bluster away the coining storm. ' Well noble captain, so you've hunted out us poor fellow;;, and want to drag us back in a haher, I suppose ?" came to look for Ciiiiuians, and I find heathens ; for men, I find swine. shall leave the heathens to their wil derness, and the swine to their trough Parrcombe !" 44 lie's too happy to an swer you.

He is turned into an Indian now; and he is to sleep, sleep, sleep for a hun dred years, till lie gets his strength again, poor fellow." A rustlu ! a roar ! a shriek ! and Amyas lifted his eyes in time to sec a huge dark bear shoot from crags above the dreamer's head, among the group of girls. A dull crarh, as the group fell assunder ; and in the midst upon the ground, the tawny limbs of one were writhing beneath the fangs of a black jaguar, the rar est and most terrible of the forest kings. Of one? But of whish ? Was it Ayacauora ? Aud, sword, in hand, Amyas rushed madly forward ; before he reached the spot those tortured limbs were still. It was not Ayacanoia ; for with a shriek which rang thou'h the woods, the wretched dreamer, wakened thus at last, sprang up nnd felt for his sword. Fool ! he had left it in his ham mock ! Screaming the name of his bride he rushed on the jaguar, as it crouched about its prey, and seizing its head with teeth and nails, worried it like a mastiff dog. The brute wrenched his head from his gr'ssp, and raised its dreadful paw. Another moment, and the hus band's corpse) would have lain by his wife's. But high in the air gleamed Amya's blade ; down, with all weight of his huge body and strong arm, fell that most trusty steel ; the head of the jaguar dropped grinning on its victim's corpse : . And all stood still, who saw him fall, While men might count a score." "Oh! Lord Jesus," said Amya;-, to himself, "thou hast answered the devil for me 1 And this is (he selfish rest for which I would have bartered the rest which comes bv working where thou put me !" They bore away the little corpse-into the forest, and buried it un der soft moss and virgin mold, and so the fair clay was transfigured into fair er flowers, and the poor gentle, untaught spirit returned to God who gave it. And then Amyas went sadly and silently back again, and Parracombe walked after him, like one who walks in sleep. Ebs worthy sobered by the shock, entreated to come too; hut Amyas forbade him gently, " No, lad you are forgiven.- God forbid that I should judge you or any man. Sir John shall come up and marry you ; nnd then, if it shall be your will to stay, the Lord forgive you, if you be wrong ; in the meanwhile, we will leave with you all that we can spare. Stay here, and pi ay lo God to make you, and me too, wiser men." And so Am yas -departed. He had come out stern and proud; but he came back again like a child. Three days after, Parra combe was dead. Ouce in camp, he seemed unable to eat or move ; and, having received absolution aud commu nion from good Sir John, faded away without dise ase or pain, " babbling of green fields," and murmuring the name of his lo t Indian bride. Home. Let no man ever think of a happiness distinct from that of home. The gayest must have their f.ick and sol itary hours. The busiest must often re lax their labor, and there must be some retreat for them, when: they may seek refreshment from their cares, and collect the spirits that disappointments so often depress. They who live most for the public still live for the public but a small part, and they are apt to find the public service a burthen, which gentler incite ment than that of strong ambition must fun iiih the strength to support. Avarice, the accumulation of wealth for its own sake, brings with it. its own punishment in the drying up cf every lie, with which the charities of Ii "e are bound and in the conversion of the heart into a substance " harder than the neth er millstone.''

Why should they wear out, THE APPRENTICE. A young man whose father was in easv circumstances, was desirous of learning the printing business. His father con sented on condition that the son should board at home and pay weekly for board, out of the avails of his special perquisites during his apprenticeship. The young man thought this rather hard: but when he was of age and master h'u trade, his father said, " Here, son, is the money paid to me for boaid during your appn. ntiecship. I never in tended to keep it, but have retained for rour use, and with it, I give you much more as will enable you to com mence your business. The wisdom of the old man was ap parent to the son, for while I is fellows had contracted bad habits in the expun- j i;ure of similar perquisites, and were I now penniless and in vice, he was ena i 1 i ble 1 to commence his business respectaj blv ; and he n;nv stands at the head i publi-l.t rs in this country while many of his former companions are poor, cious and degraded. j The man . ho '" broke his faith, " said ROMANCE IN REAL LIFE. in of J all all following : In the fall of 1347 a young man came to this city from a no;tl ern county, quest of employment in the mill. Alter weeks of unsuccessful efforts, he becanic redrjoed to the pitable, alternative of of his best clothes in order to tain means to liquidalc his bills and employment elsewhere. Aftei consulting i bout disposing of his clothes at auction, he returned to his boarding house to up the same, when the lady of thehouso handed him a letter, directed in a female hand, which she infomud him had left by a boy , which on being was found to contain 20 in bank with a note of hand for the same amount, accompanied with the following explana tion : "Mr. : Knowing your pressing wants, and having the means at my I send you 20 with which will please immediately settle your board bill, and call at the card room in on Corporation, when by applying the overseer, whom I have seen, will be able, by giving your name, to a situation as card stripper." w rk may not be desirable, but perse vere, and in time it will lead to something better.

Though greatly surprised at such timely favor from the hand of an entire stranger, he gladly availed himself of and impelled, as by au irresistible pow er, he obeyed all the directions to very letter. On application to the room he found that the situation had been secured for him, through earnest solicitation of a young lady, was equally a stanger to the overseer, yet whose pleadings he could not resist. The whole transaction was so unusual that after our hero, by assiduous devo tion to his work, had secured the confi dence of his overseer, he related to the whole affair, and solicited his aid endeavoring to obtain the name whereabouts of his benefactress. He willingly into the plans ; yet years had passed and the mystery unsolved. In the meantime stripper had been promoted to grinder, and had laid by of his earnings the with inter st, in the Savings Bank, so to be prepared to settle so just a at any moment. In his first endeavors to unravel mystery, he applied to the post office, but found, on inquiry, that the box which the note, was placed, was not by anybody, permanllv, at the time the occurrence. Every succeeding in other directions proved equally abortive, until at last he ceased all and resolved to wait for coming events lo unfold, or coming time to reveal the mystery. Our hero, after a residence of four years in this city, had formed very valuable acquaintances, and it is at all strange, that notwithstanding obligations to one he had formed a intimate acquaintance with another of fair sex.

And she took occa sion, to console him with the suggestion, that by the deposite he had made, ol amount received, he had fully absolved himself from all further obligation. lady love being both law and gospel, he acknowledged the truthfulness of suggestion, and resigned his affections, without reserve, iuto her keeping.

From the respectability of the source, we reason for doubting the narrative, markable as it is. The writer says " There being no appearance change of weather, I obtained leave absence for a few days, and, accompan ied by my class-mate and chum, Bainbridge, Assistant Surgeon, was on Terr del Fuego.
