The promontory, as it were, on which West Point is situated juts out into the river boldlv for some dislance, and meeting with a corres ponding sinuosily on the other shore causes the river lo assume somewhat the form of a horse-shoe. Directly on the rear ot the plain on vmc,fi the aendemvis located rises a bold, frow ning hill, crowned with the hoar ru ins of Foil Putnam, tho first object seen by the traveler, as he approach es either from above or below, ll is now fallen itito decay, and lime has sadly despoiled it ol its glory ; but the crumbling walls, and dilapidated arches still attest how im pregnable il once was. It was a golden day in July when leaving a gay parly at the Hotel be low, we stole away for a quiet after noon ramble to old Fort Putnam : and after loitering idly on the way, and stopping nnon lo gaze upon the wild landscape around, we stood, at length beneath ihe dilapidated gale way of the fortress. We were still however, some distance f, om the balllemcnts. The roud heline us was nt mi ang'e offorty-fiie degrees, covered with loose slippery si.mrs lliiit seemed lo defy approach.

The hotel tin while lents--lhe gay parlies urounil the various buildings of the neade my.nnd ihc neai dwellings of the nlH iters attached to the Point were all distinctly seen. Tho l iver winding in a semi-circle around ihc fortress gives it ihe command of both passes above and below. A while sail here and there upon ils surface drooping lazily down with the tide a steam boat sending forth its volumes ol smoke, as it sailed majestically on ward. the shadows of the clouds flying along the surface of the water, and darkening ihe hills a moment, formed a picture as brilliant as it was varied. Now and then the sound of a tiu Ac floated up from the encampm. in, or the rcpoil of a gun boomed out doing and re-echoing amid l ie lills. -The position in which tho fortress stands is utmost iinj regnabh' : Shu nted on llie brow of a steep, rugged hill, rising boldly up from, the valleys on evnrv hand, and overlooked ov bul one height in the vicinity, it !om mauds not only the passes of the Hud son, ut:l the whole country around. It would be impossible for any force to command the navigation (,f lc Hudson so long as Fort Putnam might lie garrisoned by nn enemy. Its possession in the War ot the Revolu tion was therefore nil important to the American arms. Had it fallen into the possession of the British, ' the ?;ranary of the state, north ot West 'oint, would have been open to the army stationed nt New York, nnd il would have been almost impossible ever to have wiested the province from their hands. But despite. ihe trenson of Arnold, and the. disafluc tiou in the valley of the Mohawk, Providence ordained it othe.-wise. The only position, in the vicinity, overlooking the fortress is a rugged eminence in the rear, surnamed lie- doubt Hill. After ihe present forti fication had been erected, under the superintendence of Kosciusko, an out post was stationed on the height, de fended by a slight barricade. 'The ob ject of Arnold was to belnay this post . . ., i i .1 -.r t i into me nanus oi ine. or.usn; wuen the main fortress must have inevita bly fallen.' A well-manned battery from thence would quickly dismount every gun on the walls uf the lor t be neath, i) The front -of the fortress,-looking towards West Point, stands at the top of n hill, shelving downwards at an nngle of forty-five degrees, cov. ninH with a thick dense forest. ..

X MARRIAGE ON THE EVE OF BATTLE. ' BY A Optak in t::k ouoid. I can vouch for the t uth nf ih" bil lowing anecdote, ns I received il di rect from one of Napoleon's noblest hen: ted and bravest C"Cs de Guerre Duroc, DuC dc Frioul. f About the middle of . May, ill the year 1813, tho French army oc.:upie I the Saxon, village of VVoiejclic,i not tar from liauizeu, in Lin.:c a ioca ity rendered tamous in French histo ry. Napoleon had token up his quar ters in a collage, ami was, a' about midnight, busy with, his m iji-f Sui vvhi.'h he plnved a sort of gnne at chess with pins nnd colored scaling wax. Bey ond tl)e walls ot Ins Mum ble dwelling was heard the busy notes of preparation ; for on the mor row, the buttle was to be fought.

MM -t t i , . i iicempjeror s.nue.i an sii.mu tn. head, hut desired Duroc to tell him all nbi.nt it: and' drawing his chair nearer' to the (.'lowing tori hie, h. bade the mmshal he scaled. The nar rative ran as follows : NARRATIVE. " Two years ago, the Captain Du vergcr being in Paris on his furlough, was not an unlremient visitant at the ope a ; and one evening had his at tention rivetted to one of the loses, in win h sat a in short n very pretty woman. While employed in gazing upon the goddess of his idola try, he perceived n gentleman enter the box. who behaved to the lady po litely, but coldly ; and whiv nfter a short time appeared to be who ly en grossed by what was passing' in a b ix at the opposite side of the house. Iliivorger directed his eyes to the same tpi.irler, and observed a heauli lul ait I (whose manner was replete wilh Lvay.and far from refined) en gaged in a telc-a-lele with a Parisian dandy of la premiere ctitsse of exqni dtism. A strange scene ensued. The geuileman whom he remarked I . . . r .. ... . ... . 1 Jjnthe box of hisnrforec, had suddenly ,ed ""'.followed by Ihi lady her-elf; merger) ingirwug Aiie.eau", hastened into the lobby. I here he found the Kx isite in iunnediiiie con flict with llie gentleman who had been watching him a conflict ol words, and an exchange of cards. At this juncture, Dm'eiger's adnree. being in a fainting stale, was caught by him in'his arms ; and as she reco vered, after gratefully thanking him. sin: gave him her name and address, and requested he would dn her the favor ol calling on her the following morning.' Ho might be the means of obviating the misery of a life ' " Duvergcr was of course punctu al to his appointment. He found the lady in tears, nnd she briefly explain ed llie circumstances, in which she was planed. Her parents were am bitious, and had forced her .into fi.hn ted, but wealthy mairiage with M. de Beaumont. Shu had, however, re Solved scrupulously to fulfil Lor du ties, although her heart was no pan to ihu engagement. Alas I the divine happiness . f mutual love was not re sei ve.l for her." " Ha ! ha I man pauore Duroc ! ll'lf tu si rtimiinesqu?!" interposed tin1 e npe or.
