east hesitation she cut the long glossy
tresses of hair from her head, and in a
brief period bore the appearance of any
young man of eighteen, not more than her
age. Having made these arrangements
with a rapidity that only a desperate
resolve 'could cause, she instantly left the
house, passing down the avenue, before
ler father s face, he little thinking that
the spruce young waterman who chose to
breast such a storm, was the person of
his accomplished daughter.
Hurrying down to a boat house which
fronted the avenue she loosened one of
those small light skiffs which are still the
models of the pilots at Hurl gate, hotstecn
a small sail, and ra a few minutes was out
upon the Inst of the flood tides as freely
and boldly as if -she had been in a stout
ship, instead of so frail and small a boat.
It was no new thing for her to be upon
the water, being reared cIobo to it, and
hundreds of times she had been dancing
upon those waves but never in such a
gale as that. Yet coolly she steered her
tiny craft, avoiding the dangerous whirl
pools and rocks, and heading towards the
frigate which, impatient for a pilot, had
fired another gun.
Within less than twenty minutes from
the time she - started, she had luffed
alongside the man of war, having caught
the lines cast out to her and fastened the
boat, she mounted ihe vessel's side and
stood upon the quarter deck in the pres
ence of the commander.
Are you a pilot T" said the latter,
impatiently.
" 1 am, sir," was the reply.
" Young for such business. Could
you take us through Hurl Gate ?"
"As well as my father, who has been
a pilot here these thirty years," was the
replv.
" Why did he not come out instead of
sending a boy like you, in a blow as fresh
as this I"
" Because he is laid up with the rheu
matism, sir, and then be knows lean
pilot you through as well as he can. Sir
Henry Clinton knows me, sir.
Ah ! does he well, that is all right.
Can we bear away yet ?"
"No sir not wuhin an hour till the
tide runs ebb."
' That is had this gale keeps rising.
one quick glance towards JIeaen and
the disguised girl cried : . ,
.' Port port hard !"
The helmsman obeyed. The vessel
eased off before the wind, and flew on
with accumulated speed for a moment
and then was no more ! With a crash
that sent her tall spars tumbling over her
bows and sent her crew reeling to the
deck she brought up on a huge rock near
a perpendicular shore to the right. Then
amid the rush of waters, the curses of
officers, atad the shoats of frightened men,
was heard the shrill cry : ;
' If any of "yon survive this wreck, go
tell your British General that Nathan
Hale is avenged, and that by a woman
too. Sink !--sink ! and may my corses
go with you all!" :; :
And before a hand could have reached
her bad they wished it, she leaped into
the edying tide, and ere she sank, the
frigate with its shivered spars and sails,
its flag still flying, and its crew of stout
men, was going down into the cou, curt
waters, and the murdered Nathan Hale
was avenged 1

Fanning t Widow Under Difficulties.
The Bucyrus (0.) Journal spins the
following yarn, which, however faulty in
its facts, is readable as a romance. The
editor was prompted to ''perpetuate" It,
by observing in a Pittsburgh paper th
marriage announcement of a couple, who
formerly resided in Bucyrus. The yarn
is reeled off in this fashion ; . . ; . :
Twelve years, ago the bride' was a
young lady of twenty, the daughter of a
wealthy merchant in Washington, Pa.
In her father's employ was a young man
named Robert , who. the vounir
ady being bewitching!? beautiful, as in
duty bound, fell desperately in love with
her. She reciprocated ' the attachment,
and they were betrothed. Unfortunately.,
the young lady's father entered his pro
test. against this pleasant arrangement,
and accordingly the young people put off
the happy day indefinitely; About
year afterwards she received a most
tempting proposal, which, urged by her
father, she accepted, and to the eternal
despair of poor Robert, was marrird.
Hut alas tor the poor btide-rroomi .
Scarcely three months had elapsed when
a kick from a vicious horse killed him.
Robert consoled the widow, and deter
mined at the end of a year or so to marry
her. He had too much respect for her to
press his suit immediately, and did not
tor ntteen months, when he proposed.
To his horror, sire informed bim that she
was already engaged, and ihat in three
months mote her second marriage would
be consummated. Two years ' paised.
In the meantime tbe widow and her has
band had removed to Syracase, N, Y.,
and Robert possessed by some Strang
hallucination, followed them. That sea
son the choleraswept that city, and among
its victims was the second husband.
Robert allowed a year to pass, and was
on th point of srging his claims, wben
he received an invitation to her weddimrf
