Z, RAGAN, Editor and Proprietor,
Royalty of Lore.
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
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
"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
"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
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
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,
"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
"And Miss Bacon?" eagerly inquired
"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"
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
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.
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
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

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
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

when she noticed her teacher looking at
the bright flowers that were so thickly

The discovery was one that could not

village teacher. She ascertained the re

Very bright and happy looked Mary

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

teacher kindly. Nelly is fond of her

The Old Homestead.
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

store no more May days for him.
Memory goes back to a snaeimu old

ageu grandparents who sat in the warm

who, with myself, eomposed the family

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
