Was thro' half-drawn curtain streaming, With auch a mellow light that one Might swear from fairy eye 'twas beaming, And on a maiden's face it fell, Half roused from rest, and half reclining, As though it loved to linger well Upon a cheek o smooth and shining ; One small, white hand, upheld her brow, Her arm the yielding pill-'W pressing, While o'er a neck like stainless snow 1'lowed many a tress caressing. Her eye alas ! tlinse orbs were hid 'Neath her clear fingers, soft and taper ; She might have wept, but if she did Long ere it fell the tear was vapnr. Oh! grief that maiden's heart hud wrung, And sorrow bowed her spirit's lightness, For o'er her sky, impending, hung A cloud that shaded all its brightness. And darkly in her troubled breast Sad thoughts of coming woo were waking. Tears tears are easily repressed If the poer, tortured iibaht is brkakisa . And whnt had thus that fair girl stirred. Or ruthless hand her hopes been crushing ! What burning wrong or scornful word The music of her soul been hushing 1 Had some stern parent's oico severe Forbade a love she might not slille ' Or hsd some hearties one, too dear, With her fun-' feelings dared to trifle ? o 'twas a grief more deep and cursed Than faithless love or chiding mother List night her faithless butle burst. And she'd no bran to stuff another.' to our fate, we always contemplate ! with a sacred, with a serious, anil interesting Measure. I need not describe ihe dale ol my mind in which civil discord had not whnlely obhberntcd graiituue ami sytnpa thy ; lie beheld witli ilio most poignant emotion the forlorn situation of that l.iith- ful, (inn associate of his youth, who had undergone for him disgrace ami unpen ; saw on every sole o the house trie hell-hounds of war, and . Hie mastitis ol the law waning with eager impatience lo drag the man he once loved to an nniimi lv death ; he hurried from the bench pre- ipiiatflv lo conceal his feelings, and hurst into tears. Hut friendship, like other virtues, re quired the speedy and effectual proof ex ertion, or it would have heen counteracted by the din of arms by the meli-vtilenee of party fury. Alter much opposition from the round-heads, whom Mr. W ake s behaviour had exasperated, a respite was granted; ami Nicholas, unwilling to risk a life which he highly valued by llie un certainly of letters and the dilatory tardi ness of messengers, mimed ininieilialelv to Loudon, lie rushed to the Protector, and would not quit him till, sorely aginst Oliver's will he had obtained a pardon for his friend, against whom, from personal enmity or misrepresentation, ununweii was peculiarly inveterate. The fortunate royalist, from inattention, magnanimous or affected contempt of death, was a stranger lo the name or person of his judge, and knew not the puwerlul interposition in his favor. Nicholas had also reserved the precious, the important secret in his own breast, till certain of sue cess, lest, by vainly exciting; hope, ho should only add new pains to the misfor tune. Returning without delay to halts bury, he flew lo the prison, gradually dis closed Ins name and ollice to w ake, ami producing a pardon, the friends sunk into each other's arms Nicholas overpowered by the bliss of conferring life and comfort on one from whom he had early experien ced the most disinterested friendship. Wake unexpectedly snatched from death by discovering perhaps the first friend he ever loved, in a party whom he hail al ways considered as usurpers or lawful au thority, as the wolves and tigers of his country. THE DUTCHMAN AND HIS II0R9E. Cornelius Voldermad. a Dutchman, and an inhabitant of the Cape of Good Hope, had an intrepid philanthropy which im pelled him to risk, and (as it uafortunalely proved") to lose his own life in consequence nf hnroic efforts to save the lives of others. This generous purpose in a gre u degree he effected in the year 1773, w hen a Dutch ship was driven ashoie in asiorm near Table Hay, not hr Irom the outli River Fort. Returning from a ride, the slate of the vessel and the cries of the crew strongly interested him in their be half. Though unable to swim, lie provi ded himself with a rope, and being inoun ted on a powerful horse remarkably mus cular in its form, plunged w ith the noble animal into the sea. which rolled in waves sufficiently iremendotn to daunt a ni:in nf ciniiiiion fortiiude. Ibis worthy man, with his spirit- d horse, approach the ship's side near enough to enable the sailors to lay hold ol the end ol a cord u hied, bo threw out to them ; by Ibis till While we lament Voltemad's fate, and ihe ungieaiful treatment his relation ex perienced from the people at the Cape, n circumstance arises in our minds which tends to render ibis mi-fortune still more aggravating. In his hold and siicct ssful attempt to reach ihe ship, if this benevo lent man. instead of embarrassing himself with a hazardous burden foal lo thrm all, bad only brought the end of a long ronp with him on shote. it might have been fixed lo a cable, which with proper help might have been dragged on shore, and the whole ship's company saved without involving llieir benefactor and the noble n animal i-i destruction.

A common sew er of considerable depth having been opened at Nayoti for the purpose of repair, four men passing by late in the evening, unfortunately fell in, no precaution hating been made to pre vent so probable an accident. It was al most midnight before their situation was known ; and besides the difficulty of procurin" assistance at that unseasonable hour, every one present was intimidated from exposing herself lo a similar danger by attempting to rescue those unfortunate wretches, who appeared already in a statu of suffocation from the incphiiic vapor. Fearless or ignorant of danger, and irresistibly impelled by the cries of their wives and children, who surrounded the spot, Catharine V assent, a servant ot tne town, insisted on being lowered without delay into the noxious opening, and fast ening a cord, which she had furnished irevious to her descent, round two of their bodies, assisted by those above, she restored them to life and to their fami- ies ; hut in descending a second time her breath began to fail, and after clleetually securing a cord to the body of a third man, she had sufficient presence of mind, although in a fainting condition, to fix the roap tirinly to her own hair, which hung in long and luxuriant curls round a full but well formed neck. Her neighbors, who felt no inclination to imitate her hero ism, had willingly contributed such as sistance as they could afford compatible with safety, and in pulling up as they thought a third man's body, were equally concerned and surprised to see ihe almuM lifeless body of Catharine suspended by her hair, and swinging on the same cord.

It must be, my child 1' said the poor widow, wiping away the tears which slow ly trickled down her wasted cheeks. There is no other resource. I am too sick to work, and you cannot, surely, see me and your little brother starve. Try to beg a few shillings, and perhaps by the lime that is gone, 1 shall be belter. Go, Henry, my dear; 1 grieve to send you on such an errand, but it must be done.' The bov, a noble looking little fellow of about n n years, started up, and throw ing his arms around his mother's neck, left the house without a word. He did not hear the groan of anguish that was ut tered by his parent as the door closed be hind him ; and it was well thai he did not, for his little, heart was ready to hurst with out it. It was a by-street in Philadelphia, and as he walked to and fro on the side walk, he looked first alone person and then at another, as they passed him, but no one seemed to look kindly on hioi, and the longer be waited, the faster his cour age dwindled away, and the more difficult it became lo muster resolution lo beg. The tears were running fast down his cheeks, but nobody noticed them, or if thev did, nobody seemed to care ; for al though clean. Henry looked poot and mis erable, and it is common for ihe poor and miserable to cry. Every body seemed in a hurry, and the poor hoy was quite in despair, when at last he espied a gentleman who seemed lo lie very leisurely taking a morning w alk, He was dressed in black, wore a three cornered hat, and had a face that was as mild and benignant as an angel's. Some how, when Henry looked at him, he fell all his fears vanish at once, and instantly approached him. His tears had been (low ing so long, that his eyes were quite red and swollen, and his voice trembled but that was with weakness, for he had not eaten for twenty-four hours. As Hen ry, with a low, faltering voice, begged lor little charily, the gentleman stopped, and h'u kind heart melted with compass ion as ho looked into the fair countenance of the poor boy, and saw the deep blush which spread all over his face, ami listen ed lo ihe modest, humble tone which ac companied his petition. You do not look like a hoy that has been accustomed to beg his bread,' said he, kindly laying his hand on the boy's shoulder, 'what has driven you to ihis step?' Indeed,' answered Henry, his tears be ginning lo flow afresh, 'indeed, I was not born in this condition. 15nt the misfor- fortunes of my father, and the sickness of my mother, have driven me lo ihe nect s ny now.' 'Who is your father ?' inquired ihe gen tleman, still more interested. 1 ,M father was a licit merchant in this city ; but he became b udsmati lor a friend, who soon after filled, and he was entirely ruined. He could not live long afier ibis loss, ami in one month he died of grief, and his deaih wa- more (In a Iful loan any other trouble.

I thought you looked like a stranger sir, and some-tbi'-g in yom face overcome my shame and gave mc courage in speak to you. (). sir, do piiy my poor mother!' The tears, and the simple and moving language of ihe poor boy, lunched a chord in the breasi of the sirjnger that was ac customed lo frequent vibrations sought the dwelling of the sick widow He entered a little room in which he could see nothing but a few implements, of fa male labor a miserable table, an old bu reau, and a little bed which stood in one , i .1 ; l!

Deeply moved at this sight, the strati ger drew near the bedside of the invalid, and feigning to be a physician inquired into the nature of her disease. The symp toms were explained in a few words, when the widow, with a deep sigh, ad ded, 'O, sir, my sickness has a deeper cause, and one which is beyond the art of f .!.. a physician io cure, i am a mumi-i wretched mother. I see my children sinking daily deeper and deeper in want, which I have no means of relieving. My sickness is of the heart, and death can alone end my sorrows ; but even death is dreadful lo me, for it awakens the thought of the misery into which my children would he r.liinuotl if ' Here cmo- lion cheeked her utterance, and the tears (lowed unrestrained down her cheeks, lint the pretended physician spoke so consoling to her, and manifested, so warm a sympathy for her condition, that the heart of the poor woman throbbed with a pleasure that was unwonted. Do not despair,' said the benevolent stranger, 'think only of recovery and of pteserviiig a life that is so precious to your children. Can I write a prescription jiere ?' The poor widow look a little prayer book from the. hands of the child who sat u iib hor nn the bed. nnd tearing out a blank leaf, '1 have no other paper,' said she. 'but perhaps this will do.' The stranger took a pencil from his pocket, and wrote a few lines upon the naner 'This prescription,' said he, 'you will find of great service to you. 11 it is in cessarv I will write you a second. hate great hopes of your recovery.' He laid the paper on the table and went away Scatcely was he gone when the elder son returned 'Cheer up, de:tr mother,' said he, going to her bedside and affectionately kissing her. 'See w hat a kind, benevolent stran gcr has given us. It will make us rich for several days. It has enabled us to have a physician, and he will he here in a mo ment.

Kino James VI, on removing to Lou don, was waited upon by the Spanish e m bassador, a man of erudition, but who had a crotchet in bis head that every country should have a professor of signs, to teach him and the like of him to understand one another. Thn embassador was lament ing one day this great disideratum through out all F.uropc, when (he king, who was a queerish sort of man, said to him,1 W hy, 1 have a professor of signs in the north ernmost college of my dominions, viz : at Aberdeen ; but it is a great way off, pct$ haps six hundred miles.' 'Were it ten thousand leagues of! I shall see him,' said the embassador, 'and am determined to set out in two or three days,' the king saw he had committed himself, and wrote, or caused to be written to the university of Aberdeen, stating the case, and desir- ino- the professors to put him oil some way or make the best oi mm. em bassador arrives, is received with great olcmniiy; but soon began to inquire of them which ol them nau tne no nor vi being the professor of signs t and being told that the protessor was ausem m the Highlands, nnd would ietum no body could say when, the embassador said. I will wait his return, inougu iuua- iwelve months.' Seeing that this wouiu not do, and that they had to entertain him at a great expence an me nmi mt. contrived a stratagem. There was one Geordy, a butcher blind of an eye, a droll fellow, with much wit and loguery about him. He was told the story, ana instructed to he a professor of signs ; but not to speak on pain of death. Geordy undertakes it. The embassador was now lold that ihe professor of signs would bo at home next day, at which he rejoiced .rrcatly. Geordy is gowned, wigged, and placed in a chair of state in. a room of the college, all the professors and the embassador being in an adjoining room. I'he embassador is now shown into Geordy's room, and letl to converse vim him as well as he could, the other profes sors wailing the.isue with fear and tremb ling. The embassador holds up one ot 1,-s lingers to Geordy; Geordy holds up two of his. The embassador holds up three; Geordy clenches his first and looks stem. The embassador then takes an orange from his pocket and holds it up ; Geordy takes a piece of barly eake from his pocket and holds that up. After which the embassador bows to liim.r.nd retires to the oilier professors, who anx iously enquired his opinion of him. He ,s a 'perfect miracle, said the embassa dor ; ! would not give him for the wealth of the Indies '.' 'Well,' said the professors, 'to desi end to- particulars.' 'Why,' said the embassador, '1 lirsl held up one linger, denoting that there is but one God; he held up two. signifying that these arc the Vdi, r nd Son : I held up three, mean- .
