A TALE OV VIRGINIA. lathe Autumn of 1674, the present ite of Richmond was divided into two plantations, belonging to Colonel Byrd and Nathaniel Bacon, the mansion of the latter standing upon what is now called Shockoe's Hill. It was one of those fine old mansions patterned after the paronia halls of Old England, and since unequalled upon this continent. s A spacious hall, decorated with portraits, large parlors, with furniture of carved oak, a dining hal where a battalion could banquet, and a library with a bow window, commanding a prospect ot picturesque magnificence, especially when Autumn had touched the foliage with his magic pencil. The blight scarlet of the maple, the deep crimson of the dogwood, the lively yellow of the chestnut, contrasted strikingly with the deep evergreen of the cedar, pine and hemlock, scattered through the forests. Below, the river foamed over its rocky bed to spread ir to a lake like a sheet.and was dotted with small islands, whose shadows reached far down into the earth- tinted tide. Nathaneil Bacon.the master of the estab ment, was a hale and handsome man, with thick black moustache, clear black eyes, and a florid complexion. Educated in England during the convulsive struggles between the throne and the parliament, be believed that popular rights were equa at least to royal sway. Not so with his sister Henrietta, who had passed a winter uith the Governor s family at Jamestown, where she had learned to reverence the "right divine" of her sovereign. Her age at this time was about eighteen, and al though her form was not voluptuary, would have been called perfect, or her face one that a sculptor would have chosen for a modeljet there was a winning expression in her eyes, and a grace in her movements, that enabled her tocharm all who knew her. At the time our story commences, she had just opened a letter, from which a printed packet fell to the floor. ''Here brother Nat," said she, "is one of His Excellency's letters to the privy council, sent back in good London print." Bacon took the document, but as he read a flush came over his cheek. At length he exclaimed in an angry tone "Hear how Governor Berkly closes Lis accounts of us :" "I thank God there are no free schools nor printing, and I hope we shall not have any these hundred years; for learning has brought disobedience, and heresy, and sects into the world, and printing has divulged them, and libels against the best government. God keep us from both I" "Excellent. I declare 1" said the fair loyalist. "Excellent ! do you call that excellent girl I" "Why, I have half a mind to sell my plantation, and remove to the North." "Ah, brother Nat, you would have your nose frozen off, even if you only go among the Manhattan Dutchmen and " Here the laughing was interrupted by the entrance of a stranger, who presented a letter to Mr, Bacon. Glancing at the exterior, he introduced the new comer to his sister as Mr. Rupert Wytbley, of Aecomac, and breaking the seal, read the contents. "I am happy to see you," said he, when he bad persued the epistle ; "and regret much to hear of the extraordinary course of the Governor in disbanding the volunteers. Can it be possible that at this time, when the yells of the savages resound through the woods, Virginians must ritire to their plantations, there to remain until they are scalped I" 1 "Ah 1 1 am glad to hear you talk so," replied Rupert Wythley,"for I have come expressly to request your acceptance of the commission of General. Here it is, signed by five hundred as brave men as there are on the continent." "You surely are not a king my brother to take up arms against Governor Berk ley's will!" askgdV Henrietta, with a smile. '.- "Nay, Miss: but the country is in danger, said the young man, who had already began to admire the fair, Hen . rietta. ;. . , . , 1 "It is a grave question," remarked Mr. Bacon, "and 1 must ponder over it; meanwhile, my sister will escort you to the fulls, and to the rock where Pocahon tas saved the life of Captain Smith. At dinner time I will give you an answer.'.' ,( Rupert .Wythley was a young planter near Jamestown, who, with a well pro portioned person, and a manly counte nance, possessed a noble heart and a cultivated intellect. His idea: of frma'e excellence had been formed upon an ideal model of perfection, in which he bad blended: the accomplishment of all the heroines of poetry and romance. Vain hid been his search hereto, but ere he had been long with Henrietta, he imag ined if her qualities of mind corresponded with her personal charms, he , had at !et(tlg length found the beau ideal of female per fection. Meanwhile her brother had been sorely troubled at heart by the invitation to lead his fellow-citizens. Like every true Vir ginian, he felt that his country was in danger; for death was ravaging the land unaer tne Hideous form oi savage cruelty. The force out under the command of Captain John Washington had proved entirely insufficient, yet the Governor, in stead of adding to it, had rebuked them for killing a patty of chiefs, because it in jured the beaver trade, of which lie had a .noHopoly. That an armed resistance to the Indians was necessary, he did not doubt, but the thought of rising in arms against the will of the King's Governor ratner staggered him. "At any way," said he to Wythley, as they sat enjoying their wine alter din ner. "1 will go to Jamestown and 6ee how matters stand. Let the news read me that a single white man has been harmed by the savages, and I will lead you on 10 vengeance, commission or no commision." A long storm, at the conclusion of which the fords were impassable, detained iiupeu wythley a week with the Bacons. He well improved the time : for ere he left, Henrietta acknowledged that she was not disinclined to treasure up the rich harvest of affection which he laid at her feet. Nay, she was rather disposed to become more republican in her feelings, and to admit that Virginians might be capaoie oi sen government. Weeks passed, and in vain (lid Na thaniel Bacon urge Governor Berkley to abandon his scheme of detached forts and organize a volunteer force of riflemen. At last he left Jamestown in despair.and, ere going home, paid a visit to Henrico, where the sparp shooters were encamped, unappaiiea by the edicts of the Governor, commanding them to disperse. The men soon went on parade, under the command oi Kupert Wythley, but era he ht.d learn ed the reports of the sergeants, a horse man approached at full gallop. Riding up in front of the line, he checked his foaming steed and shouted : "The savages are at the fulls of James Kiver, killing and plundering. Turn out, turnout!" "Where are they ?" asked Bacon, pale wiin npprenension. "They first killed all at the mills, and then camped around Bacon's house on the hill. They say it is Powhattan's council grounds and no man shall possess it." "And Miss Bacon?" eagerly inquired wythley. "I heard they'd got a while gal pria oner, and meant to torture her in a few days at a great war dance." "Bacon I ' exclaimed Wythley, "do you now hesitate v "No! no!" Then raising his voice until it rung in trumpet tones over the held, he continued, "Virginians, forgive my hesitation. Now that my own home is desolate, can I ask you to follow me to the rescue of a loved sister t About scouts, off "Lead on I" mad4he hearts of Bacon and Wythley beat high again, nor was it many hours ere the force was in motion. A braver set of men never hastened to the fray. The sun had set in clouds behind the ridge, and the woods grew dim, as th9 Virginians ap proached the house of their general. scouts had been sent in advance to re connoitre, reported that there was an entrenohment around the house, within which a huge council fire had been lighted exactly at sun rise. It .was evident no time was to be lost. The mounted cav aliers under the command of Wythley, were ordered to sweep around to the right, while lien. Bacon led . the bulk of the force directly up the hill, against the frowning silent breastwork. On they moved, with a cautious tread uncertain as to whether their coming was krpwn to the entrenched foe. ' But when they were within about twenty paces of the breastwork, there came along from its whole front a cloud of arrows making many a brave man bile the bust. The scene which followed is described as one of deadly warfare, for no sooner had Virginians reached the breastwork, than a yell was given, and the rude terrace swarmed with painted warriors, each bearing in his left hsnd a blazing torch, and in his right a war club. Springing into the midst of their assail ants, the savages dealt their murderous blows on all sides, often thrusting their burning torches into the fuoea of the whites, who could not use their fire arms so close was the enconnter. ' '" 'Sound a retreat I" shouted Gan. Ba con, and in obedience to brazen trumpet, ins men leu oacic. . , . :. . , ... At that moment, the cavaliers under Wythely, charged through the savages, and when they had passed, the infantry poured in murderous volleys, Again tho cavaliers swept through their painted ranks, and, then with a cheer, the en trenchment was stormed. At the head of those who entered the breastwork, gdmift to American Inicnsts, lTitcrntet7 ritnc aidr" STEUBENVILLE, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, fighting like a demon, was Rupert Wythely and at the door of the old man sion as he rode up to it, with a heavy heart, he saw his own Henrietta. "She is safe ! Thank God she is safe!" he exclaimed, and in an instant he had reached her side, and she was clasped to his heart. Our limits will not permit us to portray the story of her imprisonment, -as she narrated it that night around the family hearthstone. Destined for sacrifice, she had been carefully treated, and allowed the unmo lested liberty of her own room. But that night was to have witnessed her immolation. A Divine Providence had nerved her heart, as she was arleady summoned to the burning pile when a scout gave the alarm cry. Then by the light of the torches, she plainly witnessed the fray, imploring upon her knees, before the window, that a heavenly arm would sustain those whom she loved so well. Morming dawned, and a horrible scene presented itselrVound the house. There where St. John's now stands lay mingled corpses in the stiff attitude of death, and the stream near by was tinged with blood. The wounded were cared for, the dead interred, and by dinner lime the horrors of "grim visaged war," no longer met the eye. The last council fire of the Indian race at James River Fall was ex tinguished, and the few surviving des cendants of that terrible tribe of Pocahon tas, began their funeral march towards the setting sun. Success insues. Had Bacon been de feated he would have been shot as a traitor to his king ; but now the haughty Governor rewarded him, and he was hailed by the Virginians as their defender. Marching to Jamestown, he forced the Governor to adopt new laws, which code was completed July 4. 1676 one hun dred years to-day before the Congress of me unitea estates. Adopting the Decfa ration framed by the statesmen of Vir ginia, bean a new era in the history of men. I he eighteenth century in Vir ginia was the child of the seventeenth; and Kacon s rebellion, with the corrres ponding scenes in Maryland, Carolina and New England, was the early harbin ger of American Independnce. And where was Henrietta, that sturdy loyalist T Not in the stately rooms of the Governor, but with the sisters of her affianced lover, Rupert Wythley, who had a residence in Jamestown. Her dreams of royal protection and a noble husband had vaished during her terrible captivity, and she now bowed in hohiage oetore her heart s lord, soon they were married, and relumed to the plantation. w which Nathaniel Bacon gave his sister as a dower, borne clouds darkened ihei pathway of life at first, but they lived many years in as perfect happiness as moriaiB can enjoy; nor did she ever for get, in after years, in narrating to her grandchildren the events of her rescue, to add : For all that, my dear, your grand father did not hold the king's commission Virginians would act for themselves. Years rolled on. The Old Dominion became the leader in a great movement, and while the name of the Wythleys is remembered by many who visit the beau tiful locality of their homes, once the soene of deadly slaughter, history sounds the praise of Nathaniel Bacon, and in scribes his name, in golden letters high upon the architecture of our National Pantheon, A Beautiful Story. "You were not here yesterday," said the gentle teacher of the village school, as she laid her hand kindly on the curly head of one of her pupils. It was recess time, but the little girl, had not gone to frolio away the ten minutes, not even left her seat, but sat absorbed in what seemed a fruitless attempt to make herself mis tress of a sum in long division. Her face and neck crimsoned at the remark of b?r teacher, but looking up, she seemed somewhat reassured by the kind glance that met hers, " No ma'am, I was not, but my sister Nelly was." "1 remember there was a little girl, who called hersolf Nelly Gray, came in yesterday, but I did not know she was your sister. But why did you not comet You Beeni to love to study very much." " It was not because I did not want to come," was the earnest answer, and then she paused and the deep flush again tin ged that fair brow-" but," she continued after a moment of painlul embarrassment, " mother cannot spare usbolh convenient ly, and so we are going to take turns: I'm going to school one day, and sister next ; and to-night I'm to teach Nelly all I've learned to-day ; and to-morrow night she will teaeh me all she learns while here. It is the only way we can tliirk of getting along, and we want to study very much, so as to sometime keep school ourselves and take care of mother, because she has to work very hard to take care of us." With genuine delicacy, Miss M. for bore to, question the child . further, but sat down beside her,and in a 1 moment explained the rule, over which sho was pnzzing her young brain, so that the difficult sum was easily finished. " You had better go out and take the air a moment; you have studied very hard to-day," said the teacher as the lit lie girl put up her slate. 1 " 1 had rather not ; I might lear my dress; I will stand bythe window and watch the rest of the scholars." There was such a peculiar tone in the voice of her pupil as she said "I might tear my dress," t'lat Miss M. was led instinctively to notice it. It was nothing but a ninepenny print of deep blue, but was neatly made, and bad never been washed. And while looking at it, she remembered that, during the whole pre vious fortnight Mary Gray attended school regularly, that she had never seen her wear but that one dress, i She is a thoughtful little girl," said she to herself, " and doej not want to make her mother any trouble. I wish I had more such scholars." The next morning Mary was absent, but her sister occupied her seat. There was something so interesting in ihn iwn little sisters ; the one eleven years old and ine ouier eignteen monthsjounger, agree ing to tend school hv turns: thai Misa could not forbear observing them very closely. They were pretty faced children, of delicate form and fairy like hands and ieei; me ewer with dark lustrous eyes, and the other with orbs like the June sky, her while neck veiled by a wreath ol gol den ringlets. She observed in hnth thi same close attention to their studies, and as fliary had tamed during play time, so did Nelly, and upon sp'eaking to her as she did to her sister, she received the same answer, "I might tear my dress." Again the reply caused Miss M. to no tice the garb of the sister. She saw at once it was the same piece as Mary's and upon scrutinizing it close!?, she h'piamn certain it was the same dress. It did not fit so closely on Nolly, it was too long iur ner, anu sne was eyiuently.not at ease when she noticed her teacher looking at the bright flowers that were so thickly set on ine unru ground. The discovery was one that could not but interest a heart so truly benevolent as inai wnicn pulsated in the bosom of that village teacher. She ascertained the re sidence of their mother, and Ihnnirh snre. ly straightened by a narrow purse, that uigiu, uaviug ni u i in ai ine oniy store in the place a few yards of the same material, purchased a dress for little Nel ly, and sent it to her in such a way that the donor could not be detected. Very bright and happy looked Mary Gray on Friday morninc. as she entered the school at an early hour. She -waited only to place her book neatly on her desk ere she approached Miss M. and whispered in a voice in unite nf her n(T,iri to make it low and deferential" after this week, Nelly is going to school every uay, ana on, i am bo glad ! " This is good news," replied the teacher kindly. Nelly is fond of her bookf, I 8ee. and I am hannv In lennv that she can have an opportunity to study ner dooks every day. Then she continued, little good humor ed mischief encircling her eyes, " but can your mother snare both convenient- ly!" . " O ves ma am. hIia onn nnw.

" I told her I would not go either; but she said I had better, for I could, then teach her some, and it would be better than no schooling.

Miss M. we are all so glad now. Ain't you too ?" " Indeed I am," was the emphatic answer. And on the following Monday, when little Nelly entered the school room, her face ladiant as a rose in the sun. shine, and approached tho teacher's table, sue cxciaimeu in tones as musical as those of a fieed fountain" I'm coming to school now, and I'm so glad !' Miss M. felt as she had never felt that it was more blessed to give than to receive. No millionaire, when he saw his name in public prints, lauded for his thousand dollar charities, was ever half so happy as that poor school teacher, who wore old gloves half a Bummer longer than she ought, and thereby saved enough to buy.that little fatherless o-irl n calico dress. The Old Homestead. BY JENNIE LANE. If there is a home which is ever dear, and home forever, is is the spot where our eyes first opened upon the shifting panorama of human existence ; where the first words framed by our unskilled or gans of speech were uttered ; where we tottered around upon the greensward, a kind maternal hand siding our helples ness, learning little by little the mysteries of Life the exuberant gailies of child hood, the hopes anil aspirations of yonih, and if we linger long enough, the strength and fortitude of mature years. We may nuns 01 me oiu Homestead but seldom when prosperity leads us by the hand in flowery paths and neatli the cooling shade but when adversity scatters ilmmn amid the flowers, and withers with its upas breath the leaves that farmed our brows, and disannointmpnt ehenks (ho fountain of joy that gushed from heart to eye, and lip and brow, beautifying all things, Ae?i,we sigh for the calm morning of life, that dawned so briffhtlv in the old homestead, and quiet rest at our motner s knee. Would that it had ever been mnrniner. never mid-dav. is the sicrh Ihn! o-noa nn from many a troubled breast, weary of ton, 01 sinte, ot unrest. Vain wish I for the innocence of childhood, the honeful ness of youth, shall return to glad the weary nevermore. Well do I remember one wlm imn back to us from the busy world, full of weariness, and heart sore. But a few years before he had swne forth in all ih pride and strength of early manhood j HiDomon nervea nis arm, and love his heart. Now how chanced! The raA of Death had come in an nnlnnkml far hour, and had taken her who had for a lew short seasons slept upon his bo som : whose Dure and lervnnt Invn had been the sunshine of life ; and now, while the sod was fresh upon her new made grave, he had come back to the home of his childhood, as if ihtre vet could be found a panacea for the ills of me. uut no; the last buoyant feeling Time prtserved fresh from childhood, ia buried in the tomb where sleeps the loved ana lost nearl treasures not lost, but gone before. . It was a beauteous Snhhath eve of May ; I remember how he came in from a lonely walk laid in my lap a few sweet May flowers irotn the wood, a bunch of the soft "nussv willow" hnds that grew beside the mossy rock in the large pasture, and a handful of pebbles from the noisy brunlr that iramhnlpd hv the door. Often in hiinnier davit had mv little apron been filled with like gifts from his boyish hands, and my voice rang out a gleeful demonstration of my gratitude for his brotherly kindness. But now I did not laugh ; I could only close my eyes to keen back the tears that would come, and sigh that life contained in store no more May days for him. Memory goes back to a snaeimu old W . wax farm house, of antiaue stvla larra and roomy, warmed by huge fireplaces where in ourn uncut logs 01 a Winter evening, in the light of Whose blaze sal ihrnA rrnn. erations. I remember them all, from the ageu grandparents who sat in the warm est nfok, down to the tabby cat that pur red on the warm hearth rug at their feet, who, with myself, eomposed the family pets. 1 see her now, that old grandmo ther, seated in her arm chair, nlavimr the shining knitting needles with all the vigor ni ynum, inougn ins 10CK8 that escape from her neat cao are scarcely less white than the snowy muslin. , And Grandfa ther, too, wun one eyed spectacles astride his nose, reading from the well worn family bible, or with a little one nnnn hi knee, telling tales of the Revolution and tnniitng adventures of early lire in the wnderncss, or singing wim ! tremulous voice, some ballad that memory has kept iScnl -Inldligena fiom boyhood, an echo from the dawn oi life by the ocean strand. The laughter of childhood ever blended sweetly with the song of youth, the voice of manhood and old age in that old mansion beneath the -shadow of the hills. And without, there was no lack of Nature's harmonies; all the longt$ummer days the birds, trees, and streams sang in unison, and in neigh boring hills herds lowed, and lambs gam bolled in the warm sunshine. Long years have the grey headed ones who sat in tbe chimney nook been sleep ing beneath the sod of the church yard; but they are not the first we missed from the fireside. One by one the circle di minished ; each had a mission of love and labor to perform, and as they were called, went out in strength and beauty, other homes to create and bless, leaving the old house at home quiet and lone. And Time hath taken even that ; no trace re mains to tell us where it once stood ; but in a modern cottage, snug and cosy, they who were the presiding geniuses of the old homestead, now feeble and silver haired, wait alone to welcome the smiling faces of child and grandchild, that now and then come like rays of sunshine to their deserted homes, bringing joy and mirth to their declining years. The old homestead ! dear, let it remain to every heart, however humble it may have been. He who holds in fond remembrance a home, humble, but pure and peaceful, has a talismanic power within, to resist temptalion and flee from evil. Time will steal from us childhood and youth ; but we may cling to its memories, and so keep the heart from growing old. Repentance. Repentance is the key that unlocks the gate wherein sin keeps man a prisoner. It is the aqua vita: to fetch again to itself the fainting soul. Feltham.
