I THE EMPRESS OF RUSSIA. In the little town of Muricnburg lived a Lutheran minister by the name of Skovrona ki, who was remnrkubla for hia piety, benev olence, and unwearied Hurts in doing good. On returning to his humble dwelling one evening, his attention was attracted by Ilia cries of a child. Hia horse was unwilling tu proceed; ho dismounted, und at a short dis tance on the enow lie diacovercd the object of distress. There liy a half frozen child. Wrapping it in hia cloak, he remounted his horse, and in a short lime wan at the parson age. That child was a beautiful little girl, not a year old. It was at once adopted by the pas tor, and placed in the care of his faithful ser vant, an old lady, who had long resided in the family. She was named Catharine, from the circumstance that h.e was found on St. Cutharine's day, the twenty-fifth of Novem ber. She was nursed with great care and tenderness, ami treated by the family as an -only child. Her beauty, docility and sweet temper attracted the attention of all who suw her. A more lovely little creature could hardly be imagined. As she grew up she interested herself in ' the management of the household affairs, and was alwnya ready ta assist a occasion requi red. The venerable Skovronski was grow ing old under his excessive labors for tho good ol his flock, his naturally robust consti tution was evidently giving way. This deep ly affected Catharine, for she loved tho good old man as her best earthly friend. She re ; spected him as a parent; and she could never forget that it wns he who euved her life. ! When he became ill, she wou!d do all for him in her power, and often cheered his lone ly hours by singing some beautiful hymns, She would olten say: 'My dear father, what can I do for yeu: Can I not render you some assistance! Can I do too much for one who saved my life? On the twentieth f August, 1703, Marien burg was taken by the Russians, and many of ita inhabitants slain. It waa a sad day. Many heart-rending scene were witnessed. Catharine at this time was seventeen years of age, and at the time of the battle waa vis iting the lister of Skovronski, a few miles distant. She heard the eannon, but did not understand the cause. This part of our sto ry must be dem-ri bed by another. Though a slight thread of fiction may be ocn in the ' description, it will give a life-like air to tha facts presented. A horse suddenly stopped at the door of the cottage, and a young man hastily dis mounted. 'The Russians are at Murienburgl' exclaim ed he, rushing into the apartment. 'I have escaped with difficulty to bring this letter from your brother, (addressiag the pastor's sister,) who ha given hi herse for my use.' 'Do telt me what ha occurred at Marien ' burg,' said Catharine. 'Why, do you not hear the cannon! 'General Scheremetief, with an army, ie bombarding Marienburg. O, it ia a cruel sight t behold!' 'My father, my benefactor I cried Catha rine, sobbing. Bach waa her anxiety to see her best earth ly friend, that ah immediately started for Marienburg; but on reaching the town eh we met by one of tha guard, with 'where are yU going.' What i that to you!' replied tha young girl, 'I am in haste, ant ftuj lot me pad." Yon, of eeurse, re not aware, thon that the town la in tha hands of tha Ruiiitne.' Well, 'whs; than? interrupted Catharine.' 'That all tha inhabitant are prisoner and if you pursue your route, you will be taken' prisoner yourself.' Thank you for your advice; but my father and benefactor ia in thie town, and I am de termined to share hi fate, whatever it my be. Go, then, and God preserve you!' anawered the man. She had not proceeded far before in officer demanded her name. , 'Catharine,' ihe quickly replied, I im'tho adop -d child of the pastor, Skovroniki ." 'Tho art Livonian," replied efficer 'Li vonia beu now lo our Crar, l'eter I., of Russia; you 're, therefore, a prisoner.' 'Touch me not,' said Catharine, her beau tiful dark eyes flashing. 'I returned to Mari enburg to fad my adopted father.' Conduct me, then, to him in hie house in a dun geon no matter where so that I may find him.' As the officer did not seem dispesed to com ply with her request, she inquired: 'Who is your Generol!' General Scheremetief,' was the offisar's reply. 'I wish, then, to speak to your General.' In a few momenta, as the Cossaak's officer was inquiring where the General officer was inquiring where tho Genernl could be fund, an old woman, perceivig her, uttered a cry ol despair. 'O, my dear child, you -vill ace your protec tor no more! He died on the battle field by a Knssian bullet, while in the act of binding up the wound- of a poor, dear master!' This old lady was the servant of Slisvron ski. Catharine turned pale at this ssd intelli gence, and inquired, "Have you then, left him there without help!" The officer bade her follow him, and he soon introduced her into the General's tent. She threw herself at SchercineliePs "et, and with her uplifted I'ands, exclaimed: 'A grace, Genorul! for pity's sake, a grace!' 'What docs the child want,' inquired the General of the officer. 'She wishes to apeuk to you.' 'It i true," r-plied Catharine. 'I hove learned that my falherand protector is among the dead. Dear pastor Skovronski! The favor I aBk, is, to be allowed to seek for his liody that it may be properly buried. The tone of her voice was so peculiar, and her oun:enonce so commanding, yet so inge nious, that the General was moved at the sight of her youth and courage, and said: 'The camp is situated outside ol the walls; if I grant your request, what guarantee shall I have that you will not try to escape!" 'My word:' replied Catharine innocently. 'Go then,' said the General: but remember your promise to return, for you belong to me.' On leaving the tent, she soon met thr pas tor's old servant. 'Come,' suid she tuking her hand, 'show me the place where yon saw him fall.' The night was dirk, and it was with great diflicuhy they could see their way. They soon enma upon a field covered with the bod ies of the slain, while the cries that arese tokl that mtiny were still alive. It was in deed a scee of horror. It was dark, and how was'ehe to distinguish her benefactor! Soon a soldier appeared with a lantern, which he kindly offered her, but advisinjr her to discontinue her search till morning. This she at once declined. 'But,' said the brave soldier, 'you are not formed to be u slave, though a General may be your master. You are now beyond the camp; no person can see you. Fly! If you want money, here it is.' 'Fly! when I have given my word not to de so!' 'The word of a girl without name, without birth, is of little consequence. I conjure you to fly .- Catharine remained unmoved, and resolved to fulfil her promise. The search contin ued, and in a few moments he was found, nearly senseless and quite n eechles3. Af ter several attempts he faintly whispeted, 'where tun I ! 'With your friends,' replied Catharine 'with your littlo Catharine.' A little cordial being administered, he re ' rived and was carried home on a litter. Hii wounds were dressed, and till possible assis tance rendered to the wounded pastor. 'jCnth arine was overjoyed to see her dearest friend so comfortable. The old man had learned his dear child waa a prisoner, and this grieved him much. 'It i all right,' said Catharine. 'If I had not been taken prisoner, I should not huve be carried before the General, and would have missed seeing your servant, who told me of your death; and had I -aot seen her, I should never have thought of seeking for you on the battle field.' 'Now,' said Catharine, 'my dear benefactor bless :ne, your poor child, tor I mist leave I you.' 'Go, my child, go,' said the old man, in a solemn voice, 'do your duty, and God Will bless you.' Catharine kissed ihe lips of the eld man and exclaimed, 'adieu, my father! and left the inane A he entered the tent of the Generul, ihe met the young soldier who presented hei with the lantern in the Baatle field, and he now kindly presented her to the General. 'What, have you returned!' said the Gen eral on seeing her, 'I feared I should not sec you again.' 'I gave you my word,' wai her brief rpp'.y What shall 1 do with her!' inquired thi General, addressing himself to the soldier. "Make her my wife the wife of a soldier She is born for it! What say you my child! he added, turning to Catharine. 'I say,' (he replied, 'ray choice i not diffi cult, I would rather be a soldier's wife, that the slave of a General.' "Bravel Catharine! from thia moment yo belong ta tna." Tha soldier aroae, and beckoning to Catt arinc, he leit the tent. "Do you know wh ' ' I am, Catharine' (aid b as they walked to gel her away. 'No; hut you iid you wished to bo my i husband.' 'True; but do you know my rink in the , armyl ( 'It matter! not,' aaid Catharine; 'yon can- not suppose, I am proud a child without j family, without nime.' j, 'You re content, then, to link your deti-' ny with mine,' taking her by the hand. 'Ye, replied Catherine,' I like you becauae you hive been kind to me, poor child that I m." j, The soldier stepped 'jefore a tent more ele vated thin the rest. "Thia ii the tent of the Czir,' so id he; remain where you ire. It Is right ihot I should nk hia parmiseien to marry you.' I Catharine had waited but a few minute when a young officer, advancing, aaid. The Cxar u islma to seayoa.' NOn entering the tent, ihe siw a large number of officers, in the center of whom t-He immediately jecogR ixod the young ul dier, her compsnieji. 'Where is the Czar!': Inquired Catharine of the officer. 'There!' said he, pointing to the soldier! w ho was sealed. 'There! That i my husband! 'He is thy husband nnd the Czar likewise,' Catharine,' said the Emperor of Russia j How astonished you appear! Does the news i grieve you! Does my title prevent you from loving me!' 'I loved you ii a soldier,' laid she; I will also love yon m in Emperor ' Th Czar arose and taking the hand of the young or-, pii ,n. presented her tu hit offlctra ai the fu ' ture Empress of Ruuia. Here closes the thread af ficiiu' in our o- ry. After their marriage, the Empe - p!a-j ced her in a priv ite dwelling in Ihe rf of I Moscow, where she received etery atti mion ' becoming her position. She was lOVaN mid beautiful. She loved to do good, and to make others happy around her. She was in telligent, rheerfrH1i1rble, and benevolent. 'No doubt Peter the Great law that she was I precisely the woman who could share his en thusiatm and sympathiz in his plans. Tho obscurity of her birth was no obstacle to him; he had absolute power to raise her to the lof tiest condition in his empire. Though surrounded with the honors of roy alty, she did hot forget the pastor of Muricn berg. She loved him still, and did what ahe could to cheer his last hour-. He never re covered from his wounds, and survived but a very short time. His end was peace. Cath arine mourned over his departure, and sighed that one she had loved most of all on earth was now no mere. She often accompanied the Emperor in his journeys through his empire, and frequently attended him in military campaigns. In 1711, when Peler wus at wnr with the Turk by her extraordinary skill and superior judg ment, she saved the lire of the Emperor, and suveJ the army from being destroyed or ta ken prisoners. Peter caused the event to be comineniurited by a disp'ay o" magnifi cence unusual for him. and in tne declara tion he issued we find these words. She has been of the greatest assistance to us in our dnngers, and particularly in the buttle of Prulh.' She was blessed with two children, one of which a son died when a child. The oth er a daughter became Empress ol Russia. On the eighteenth of May, 1723, Peter the Great placed the crown with great pomp upon the head of Catharine. His hechh was now rapidly declining. Catharine all ended him constantly. January 28th, 1725 lie breathed his Mt, being only in his forty fourth year. Catherine sustained the title of Empress, witli great dignity, and. was greatly beloved by her subjects. Her reign was short. She survived her husband about two yean, and expired May 27, 17:27, at the age ol thirty eight. Blackwood. ATrriuTTED Revolt ik State Phisor. An attempt was made in the New Jersey State Prison on Sunday lest to get up revolt, which jvss discovered in time to bj thwarted. One of the prison trs, a negro, named Hilton, qicsped from III cell by means of a delect in one of the cell doors, anil crossing the bridge tjhtho other sido of the gallery opened the iffiir of the cells in which were confined man named Fallen, and the burglar Shields. Fortunately the noise of the doors uttrncted tho sttcntieni ol Mr. Vunderveer, and of Messrs. Woolvrrtouand Willets, under-keep-j crs, who were Bested in the rotunda. Mr. Vanderveer and Mr. Woolvertoa entered the wing, and the former discovering at once the state or affairs asked Willets to give him a ' pistol, and to goto the ofiisc and get the raus keu. He then followed Mr. Wooverton up the stairs to the gallery. Meanwhile the lat ter had reached Hilton and tried to prevent him from leaving Fallen's cell, into which he had pissed, but Hilton seized W. by the ihroat and endeavored lo drag him in. He escaped from his gnup and ran back for as sistance, when Hilton passed on to Shield's cell, and went in to call S. to "come out." 1 At this time Mr Vanderveer was near Pull en's cell.Jwho had just put his head o t but withdrew it at sight of the keeper. Mr. V. 1 then standing on the gallery, 'threatened to shoot the first man who camo out. This j alarmed them, and in a few minutes the un-der-keepers returned with arms and secured i '.he prisoner.

A BEAUTIFUL STORY. Better than Diamonds. I w atinding fn th broad, crowded itreet of a targe city. Il wee a .old winler'i lay. There had been rain; ind although .he aur hid been ihining brightly, yet the ong icicles hung from the eavei f the hoa I, and the wheel rumbled loully they pnd oVeUhe grolind. There was clear, bright look, ami a cold, bracing feeling in the lir( and keen, northwest wiid,which quick ihed every slp. Just then a little Jkiid Nm running along poor, Ill-clad Aitd; her clothe were scant and thresdbirAh had no cloak and ho shawl, and KIHtle bare feet looked red ai d suffiimftV- Sl'" could not have been more than eight years old. She carried i bundle iniAcr hand -Poor little hiveyk)g rhild! I, evefl I, who could do' niftmng J clae, 'pitied her. As he pasted me her foot slisped, and she tfall with cry of pain; but h held the borate tightly in her hand, Bad jumping op, although he limped Mdly, toi 4iS4i? run on a be fore . "Stop little girl, stop," eaid sweet voice; rid t beautiful woman, wrapped in huge shawl, and with furs around her, came out o' I je weler's itorc cloe by. "Poor little child," she said, "are you hurt! Sit down on this step and tell me." How I loved her, and how beautiful she looked! 'Oh, I cannot," laid the liftl child, "I cannot wait I m in s uoh hurry. I have been to the ahoemalrer's, and mother must finish this work to nigh', orjshe wi',1 never get any more ihoni to bind." 'To-night!" said the beautiful woman, 'to night!' "Yea ," aaid the child for the stranger's kind manner had made her bold "yes, for the greet ball to-night: and these satin slip pers must be spangled; and " The beautiful woman took the bundle from tho child's hand a iid unrolled it. Yon do not know why her face flushed and then tinned pule, but I, yeB I, looked in the bundle, and on the inside of a slipper I saw a name a lady's name written, but I shall not tell it. 'And where does your mother live, little girl!" S the child told her whprc, and then she to Id her that her father was dead, and that hereiitlle brother wa sick, and that her mo ther bound shoes that they miht have bread; but that fometimea they were very cold, and that her mother sometimes cried because they had no moaey to buy milk for her little, bro ther. And then I saw that the lady's eyes were full of tears; and she ro'led up tbe bun dle quickly aad gave it back to the little girl; but she gave her nothing else no, nut even a sixpence, and, turning way. went back in to the slore, from which she had jtit come out. As she went away I sMf the glitter of a diamond pin. Presently she came back, end stepping into a handsome carriage, rolled off. The little gir! looked after for a moment, and then with her little bare feet, colder than they were before, ran quickly away. I went with the little girl, and I saw her to a narrow damp street, and into a small dark room; I saw her mother her sad, faded mo ther, but with a face so sweet, 90 patient hushing and soothing a sick baby. And the baby slept and the mother laid it on her lap; and the bundle was unrolled, and a dim can dle helped her with her work; for though it was not night, yet her room was very dark. Them, after while, she kissed her littlo girl, and bad her warm her poor frozen feet over the scanty lire in the grate, and gave her a Mttlo piece of bread, for she had no more; and then she heard her ay her evening pray er, and folding her tenderly to her bosom, blessed her, and told her that the angels wo'd take care of her. And the little child slept and dreamed Oh! such pleasant dreams ot warm stockings and new shoes, but the mother sewed alone, and as the bright span gles glittered on the satin slippers.came ".here no visions of a bright room and gorgeous clothing and a table loaded with all that waa good and nice, a little portion of which spared to her would send warmth and com fort to her humble dwelling! If such thoughts came, and others of a plea sant cottage, and of ine who had dearly lo ved her, and whose strong urm had kepi'want und trouble from her and her babe.-, but who could never conic back if these thoughts did not come rcpiniugly, there a!o cjme iinoth-j cr; and the widow's hands were clasped and1 her heud bowed low, in deep contrition, as 1 1 heard her say, "Father rorgive me, for thou i dest all things well.&nd I will trust to thee." Just then the door opened softly, and ionic j one enured. Was it an angel! Her head was of spotless white, and she moved with a noiseless step. She went to the bed where the sleeping child lay, and covered it with' soft warm blanketi. Then presently a fire sparkled and blazed there, such asthelitile! grate had never kiown before. Then a' huge loaf was placed upon the table, and i fresh milk for the sick babe. Then she pau-J sed gently before the mother ond drawing! the unfinished s'ippor from her hand, placed there a purse of gold, and said in a voice like music: "Bless thy God, who is the God of the futheiless, and the widow" and he wa; gone, only as Bhe went out I heard her say, "better than diamonds belter ihan dia monds. " Who could she mean! I looked at the mother. With clasped hands and streaming eyes, ahe blessed her God, who had sent an angel to comfort her. So I went too; and I went lo a bright room, where there was music and dancing, and sweet flowers; and I saw young happy faces, and beautifully dressed, und sparkling with jewels; but none that 1 knew, until one'passcd me whose dress was o'aimple white with only a rose bud on her los on, and whoe voice was like the sweet sound of a silver lute. No apungled slipper was on ler foot; but she moved as one that treadeth upon the air, and the divine beauty of holiness had io glorified her lace that 1 felt is 1 gazed upon her, that she was 1 an angel of God.

Let ua re call some of th" incidents of his career, now 1 when we are demanded by an arrogant pa-ty to ami iiiilate the recollection of the brave and generous man who came from fothcr ; lands to suffer and to die for the cause of : American independence, twice "usailed by Ihe strongest power of the Old World. He was a German by birth. He was in France a knight of the order of military merit, and a brigadier general in the- French Army. He came to this country with La Fayette: ! was appointed a major gineral by Congress. and served at the head of the Maryland di vision. He commanded the right wing ol the Americans at Camden, S. C , nnd in that fearful conflict he fell, in his last attempt to achieve a victory .pierced w iih eleven wounds. He was rescued from immediate death by the Chevalier du Bysson, his aid, (and also a foreigner,) who embraced the pruitrale gen eral, and received ir.to his own body tbe bayonets intended for hi3 friend, exclaiming, 'Save the Baron de Kalb: oh, !ve the Baron de Kalb.' The brave veteran survived the bloody battle but a few days. Before hii death he spoke these noble words: 'I die the death 1 t Iway prayed for THE death or A soLDiEr. noHriKG for tt.c r.rnn's or man.' What a commentary upon this language are the doctrines of the new secret ord?r! Il is a voice from the grave t f a great sjltiicr, pleading againft the passions and ths preju dices, and to ihe justice and th gratitude ol the present generation. When Gen. Wash ington visited Camden, many years after, he went to the grave of the Germr.n patriot. After gazing upon it, with a countenance marked with deep thought, he exclaimed.with a sigh: 'So, there lies the brave De Kulb: (A tien:rous ttranyx, who come from a ilhtam Und tofighl our buttles, and to water with' hit Hood the tree of our liberty. Would lo (Sou he had lived lo share its fruits'' "Little did the immortal hero end sage sup pose that a day would arrive in American history when such a man as De Kalb would beci"iie a mark of proscription; when his children would have been disfranchised by a fanatical party, and when his services would be denied by a set of m'dt'rn'reformerf.whose ambition can only be satisfied lJ a war upjn all men born abroad, w hether naturalized or nut, and by a crusade upn the religious be lief of a large portion or the American people!"
