"He has gone to the south to buy stock, and I am to meet John somewhere on the road." "But your father may return this way." "No, he will go to Raleigh first " I cheered up the runaway, whose name was Martha Stoneham, as well as I could, and she seemed to feel better after she had disburdened her mind of tho se cret. I cautioned her not to throw her self away upon a worthless fellow, who might be seeking her father's property rather than herself ! for she had informed mo that her father was in easy circum stances. She knew John Oxford, and didn't lear anything, and if her "pa" had a mind, to forgive her after she was mar. ried, but she didn't care whether he did or not. - This was North Carolina "bluff however, for I could see that she' was gentle hearted, and if she had boen brot up in a moro refined circle, she would have been an angel. Ve conversed till twelve o clock and Mariha wa& in pretty good spirits by this lime ; but I was getting very sleepy and couldn't hold out much loneer. I had started her tongue, and I might as well have unearthm a volcano, for she seemed determined that I should lose mv nnp. At last I got to sleep and left her to ruminate upon her approaching nuptials. It was daylight when I awoke, the stage having stopped to chanee horses. "How Ions before the staee to Raleiirh will be idongi" asked a person of our a river. "Mercy! that's John Oxford !" ex claimed Martha, tearing open the door. John Uxlord, t thought, did not seem to be particularly pleased to meet her. and when the stage started they had a long confidential interview, and I had lhe plea sure 01 two companions. 1 did not like he looks of tho lady s lover, aud thought it quite probable her father was right in refusing to accept him as s son-in law. Why, what's the matter with vou. ohn 7" exclaimed Martha, when we had proceeded a few miles. "Your coat and shirt are covered with blood !" "Are thev ! so thev are. Oh. I had le nose bleed yesterday," he replied, with a good deal of embarrassment. lhe conversation continued on this topic, for the North Carolina lady must know all the particulars. John seemed much confused, and tried to change the subject, but she would not let him. retty poon , she discovered , several scratches on his face, which be declared ad been given him by the thorns in tho woods, We were passing through a wooded plain, when the driver stopped his team, nd shouted to me. I saw John Oxford turned pale, as I leaped out. By the side of the road lay the form of a man. Around him the. grass and soil showed that a tierce struggle had taken place on the pot, indicating that the murdered travel. er had sold his life dearly. I raised hint up and he opened his eyes, uttering a deep groan as he did so. The driver came to my assistance and we discovered tnat he had received several stabs and was apparently in the last ex tremity. "Is he dead!" asked John Oxford from the coach. "No," replied the driver. It seemed to me that I conld hear the over's teeth chatter, but perhaps it was because I happened to think of the blood upon his clothes. Taking my "travel ing companion" from my pocket, (I al ways earned one in those days to guard against . the accident of unwholesome water,) I poured a plentiful draught down his throat., It revived bira. , . . , "Oh, Martha," he groaned. , Martha ! Who was the murdered traveller? : The runaway maiden heard the word ' and leaped from the coach In spite of the endeavors of Oxford to detain her.. ... '. i. ... '. ,. "My father!" she shrieked, throwing herself upon the body. Oh Martha, John Oxford han killed me," gasped the wounded man, in bro ken accents.!- ! .v.-ktVm' ,He immediately relapsed into a stupor and then we lifted him into, the coach amid the sobs of . the wilful danghter. The lover got Out as we approached, and would 1 have fled, had not the driver, drawing i his pistol, threatened to shoot him. ; He compelled him to mount the, POX, . ..j. .( ,; .... ,. .... , uetore we reached the village, seven miles distant, the father of Mariha was dead.' ' On our arrival, Oxford was hand ed over to the Sheriff. I never saw such a. change, in an hour, as the feelings o tho girl. . Before, she loved , him : now she uesDised him. I was compelled to part with (herd at this point,, for Martha was to return to her now desolate home, and Oxford was borne to the shire town to be committed to jail. I learned from the newspapers, a few months later, that Oxford had escaped tho penalty of his crime upon the want of sufficient evidence to convict him. Three years after I passed near the home of my stage companion, and learned that John Oxford, after his acquittal, had the impu dence to offer himself to Martha again, and was rejected with scorn and loathing. She married a good farmer, and was said to be pleasantly situated. Oxford fled to parts unknown. A Carious Document. Washington as every body knows was very methodical ; and he was very par ticular to have matters about which a dis pute might arUe, "put into writing," 1 he article below is copid from one of his 'papers, and is both characteristic and amusing. It is an agreement with his gardner, who it appears was in the habit of getting "tight." "Articles of agreement made this twelfth day of April. Anno Domini, one thousand seven hundred and eighty-seven, by and between George Washington, Esq , of the Parish of Truro, in the county of Fairfax, State of Virginia, on one part, and Philip Hater, gardner, on the other. witnesses, that the said f hilip uater, for and in consideration of the covenants herein hereafter mentioned, doth promise and agree to serve the said George Wash inglon for the term of one year as a gard ner, and that he will during the said time, conduct himself soberly, dilhgently, on and honestlythat he will faithfully and industriously perform all and every part of his duty as a gardner to the best of his knowledge and abilities, and that be will not at any time suffer himself to be dis guised with liquor, except on times here after mentioned. "In consideration of these things being well and truly performed nn the part of said fnilip Bater, the said George Wash ington doth agree to allow him (the said Philip the same kind and quality of provisions that he has heretotore had, and likewise, annually a decent suit of clothes, befitting a man in his situation; to consist of coat, vest and breeches as workinc jacket and breeches.of homespun, besides; two white shirts: three check do; two linen pocket handkerchiefs ; two pair of linen overhauls; as many pair of shoes as are necessary for him; four dollars at Chrislman, with which he may be drunk four days and four nights ; two dollars at Eastar to effect lhe same purpose; two dollars at Whitsuntide, to be drunk two days; a dram in the morning, and a drink of grog at dinner at noon. "For the true and faithful performance of all and each part of these things, the parties have hereunto set their hands this twenty-third day of April, Anno Domini, 1787. his ; PHILIP m BATER. . matk. . V GEORGE WASHINGTON. Witness: . , Grorqb A. Washington, ...... Tobias Leak. A Temperance Address. In this con nection, it may be well to add the close of a letter from Washington to one of his overseers. The "temperance cause," as such, had not been heard of in the days of Washington: he was a "moderate drinker," but he was "down on" intem perance. Here is tho way he talks to his overseer. M shall not close this letter without xhorting you to refrain from epiritous quors ; they will prove your rum if you do not. Consider how little a drunken man differs from a beast; tho latter is not endowed with reason the former deprives nimaeii oi u, anu wnen mat is ine case, acts like a . brute, annoying disturbing every one around him ; nor is this all, nor as it respects himself, the worst of it By degrees it rendors a person feeblo, and not only . unable to serve others, but to help himself, and being an act of his own, be falls from a state of usefulness into contempt, and at length suffers, if not perishes, in penury and want. ' :: ,,."JJon't let this be your case. ; Show yourself more a man and a Christian than yield to so intolerable a vice, which can not, 1 am certain (to the greatest lover of lquor.) give more pleasure to sip in the poison (for it is no better.) than the con sequence of it in bad behaviour at the moment, and the serious evils produced by it afterwards must give pain, lam your frienl. - . GEOllGE WASHINGTON bu t one inch between wreck and smooth rolling prosperity." "Wnen flowers are full of JJeaven-de- scended dews, they always hang their heads ; but men bold theirs the higher we more tlicy receive, getting proud as they get full," ".Not parties, out principles. Let us be of no party but God's party, and use all other agencies as we use railroad cars, traveling upon one train as far as it will take us in the right direction, and then leaving it tor another." "A man may aspire, and yet be quite content until it is time to rise. A bird that sits patiently while it broods its oggs, flies bravely afterwards, leadinir ua its timid young. And both flying and resting are but parts of one contentment. The Very fruit of the Gospel is aspiration. It is to the human heart what Sprius is to tho earth ; making every root, and bud, and bough, desire to be more." " 1 ho aster has not wasted Spring and Summer because it has not blossomed. It has been all the time preparing for what is to follow, and in Antumn it is the glory of the field, and only the frost lays it low. So there are many people who must live torty or tnty years, and have the crude sap of iheir natural dispositions changed and sweotencd, before the blossoming time can come ; bat then life has not been wasted."

It is better to go to sleep on tho right side, for then the stomach is very much in the position of a bottle turned upside down, and the contents are aided in passing out by gravitation. If one goes to sleep on the left side, the operation of emptying tlio stomach of its contents Is like drawing water from a well. After going to sleep let the body take its own position. If you sleep on your back especially soon after a hearty meal, the weight of the digestive organs, and of die food, resting on the great vein of the body, near me oacK Done, compresses it, and arrests the flow of the blood moro or less. If lhe meal has been recentor hearty, the arrest ia more decided and the various sensations,such us falling over a precipice, or in pursuit of wild bensts, or other im pending dangeit,and the desperate effort to get rid of it, arouses us ; that sends on the stagnating blood, and we awake in a fright or tremblin? or Dersniration. or fftpl intra of exhaustion, according to the degree of stagnation, and tho length or strength of jRXF&Jl!-e-n-r- tho eflbrt muda tn Mn. no h il.n... n... w "AT... r '"ZZV " ciionin " wva.v miw uwnr VI aVUW I viuod viwin, w w airu. . as oo soo 600 is ce 10 w 136 03 io eo 4 00 to OS 1)1 S6M SO 00 HI It io io ' 10 10 10 1010 Z.
