Seeing nothing in my face, doubtless but the profoundest eommisseration, he remark ed in a more assured voice, ns a in justifi cation, ' It was a pretty hard thing for a man to go through with, now, wasn't ii?" "You may well say that," said I. "Your story is not yot finished, however. This Rachel Emmons you say sho is slid living, in what way does sho cause the disturban ces?" "I'll tell you all about it," said he. "an' if you understand it then you 're wiser 'n I am.

I wantc 1 to get ut o' tho neighborhood;' 1 was oneasy all tho time, bein' so near Rach el. Her mother v.ts wuss, an' her father failin'-like, too. Mother seen 'em often; she was as good a neighbor to 'ein as she d ire be. Well, I got sort o' tired, and wont out to Michigan and bought a likely farm. Old Jones give mo a start. I took Mary Ann out, and we got almi; well enough a mas ter o' two year. We heerd from homo now an' then. Rachel's father an' mother both died about tho time wo had our fust boy. him that you Boon, an' she went off to' To lodo, wo heerd, and hired out to do sewin'. Sho was always a mighty gooi hand at it, an' could cut out as well as a born manty maker. Sho'd had another fit aforo the fu nerals, an' was older lookin' an' more seri ous than ever, they 6aid. 'WtlJ, Jimmy was sis months old or so, when we begun to be woke up every night by his eryin'. Nothin' seemed to lie tho matter with him; ho was ouly frighte.ned liko, an couldn't bo quieted. I heerd nois es sometimes nothing likj what come af terwards but sort o' crackin an' suapp'ui', sich as you hear in new furniture, ay it seemed like somebody was in the rooro; but I oould.i't see nothin'. It got wuss an' wuss; Mary Ann was sure the house wa haunt ed, an' I had to let her go home for a whole winter.

"So we pu'lo.l up f takes and como out here; but it weren't loag aforo the noise Til lered ns, wuss than ever, and wo found out at last what it was. One night I woke up with my hair standin' on end, an' heerd Ra chel Einmon's vjice, just ns you heerd it last night. Mary Ann heerd it, too, an 1 it's little peace sh's give nu sen :e that time. And so it's been gout' on au' on theso eight or nine vear." "lint. I asked." you sure sho is alive? Have you soon her s:i ce? Have yon asked to be merciful ar.J not d'sturb you?" "Yes," said ho, with a bitterness of tone which seemed quite to obliteiato the Softer memories of his love; "I've seen her.nn' I've begge 1 her o my knees to let me alone; but it's no use. Yhcn it got so bad I couldn't stand it, I wrote her a letter, but I i:e t r got no answer. Nesl year, when our sec ond bov died, frightened and worred to dealh, t believe, through ha was scrawny enough when he was born, I look some mon ey I'd saved to buy a yoke of oxen, and went to Toledo o' purpose to sio Haeliel. It cut mo to do it, but I waj despv'.t. I foun I her livin' in a bttle house with strip o' garden she'd bought.

"It jist shut mo up when she looked at me. She was so corpse-like I was nfiaid she'd drop dead, then nn' there; but I made out at last to say, 'Rachel, I've come all the way from Illinois to see you.' She kept 1 uikin' straight nt me, never savin' a wrr I. 'Rachel,' said I,'l know I've acted bad to ward you. (!o:l known 1 didn't mean to tlo it. 1 don't blame you for payiu' it Lnclc to mo tho way you're doiu', but Mary Ann and tho boy never done you no barm. I've eome all the way o' purposo to ask your forgiven ess, hopin' you'll bo satisfied with what's boon done, an' leave o V bearin' malice agin us.' Sho looked kind o' sorrow:ul-liko. an' drawed a deep bre il.h. an' shook her hea 1. 'Oil, Rachel,' says I, an' before I know. -..I it I was right down on my knees at her feet. 'Rachel, don't be so hard on me. I'm the oulmppyest man that lives. I can't stun' it no longer. Rae'.u.l, you did't use to be so cruel when we was boys and girls togeth er.

A misery bo strati. e, so completely out tho ran ,e m Hu man experience, so hopeless, apparently, was not to be reached by the ordinary ut terances of consolation. I ha i seen enough to enable mo to fully understand tho fearful nature of tho retribution that had bei n visi ted upon him for what was, at worst, a weakness to bo pitied, rather than a sin to bo chastised. "Xever had a man lieen worse punished," he had Iralysaid. Rut I w.f f ir a evor from comprehending tho secret of those nightly visitations. The Ktatement of Ra chel Emmons, that they were now produced without her will, overturned supposing it to bo true the conjecture which I nd;ht otherwise have adopto 1. However, it was now plain that the unhappy victim now sob bing at my side could throw no further light upon the mystery. Ho had told mo all he knew. "My friend," said I. when ho had become calm. r, I do not wonder at your despera tion. Such continual torment as you must have endure I is enough to drive, a man to madness. It seems to me to spring from the malice of eomo infernal power, rather than Lhe righteous justice of God. Have you never tried to resist it?

"Not in tho right way, I'm afeared," said he. "'Fact is, I always tnk it as a ju lgmoiit hangin' over mo, and never thought o' noth in' else than jist to grin and bear it." "Enough of that,'' said I, for a hope of relief had suggested itelf to me; "you have suffered enough, and moro than enough. N'ow stand up und meet itliko u man.

TONTOGANY, Oct. 1861. -, Sir: Your coimnunic.U'on was re:eivt-,l some titno since, and to tho well arranged and apparently reasonable argu ments set fot th in it, I muko but a shot t and you may think terse reply. First, for (lod's sake, for the sake of your own soul, and for the sakoof all you hold dear on earth, doti't compromise with a power that strives to re-1 dm:e tho bodies and souls of men to dollars and cents, and looks upon manly physical labor, a personal disijrac?' 1 have striven to look uj on this question with a liberal conservative eye, but if we consult our best inlet ests in a religious, legal and dounnlic pint of view, wc must admit that the pres ent contest will io4ult in a ureal benetil to both North and South. It is a severe reme dy, but r.s a people wc will come from the pioseiil chastening purified and cleansed from the many inconsistencies thet now nre sli iviiig to drag un ilown, and finliindate the Constitution, whose emblem (the slats and stripes) our brav e fellows are struggling to keep to the brccrel This is no fancy sketch, it is real, it is principle that is to bo protect ed and sustained, that the land murks of christian liberty, of speech and action, may not ho abridged. Can we look back ihiough the principles that have raised us from lhe state of helpless creatures, to that of ration al and accountable beings, and discover that negro slavery has had anything, or part in our creation? The direct olVspring of slavery is to promote inse, eneotuage useh s i pa!;limD and l ender men imbecile, both in I'oul and body. You nor I, t or any other son of the free North, ever drank into our beings any manly attributes from the institution of slavery, and the most they have imbibed of fixed and puro prin ciple has sprung from the cool deliberative counsels of tho north, fostered in iitstitu tioi.c established under christian rules of propriety and self denial. This r.ny seem ineoiis'stant to your present idea of things, but tho life practice of their people proves it. Their best practical ability has been ac quired through northern teaching, and when thoir candid, truth loving sons have ventur ed up into our libeily loving, labor section of the Union, ihey have been obliged to ac knowledge their secondary pos'tien as lov ers of con; titutiotial liberty. Here, where we can speak, net and wi-ilo, as our better natures prompt us, without fear that some local, political doinagogo will take umbrage to tho out-pourings of free spii ils, whom God never meant should be trammeled by any local institution, oslablised by men to promote inglorious ease. I say here should wc ei courage in some way a movement that will pour out a portion of this liberty we enjoy, into the sin-bound hearts that are a wa:ting its quickening inllueuce. Your ad vice to nie, not to take the sword and go forth to slay my brother man, is scarcely necessary, but 1 will grasp a weapon, far mightier 1 trust, that may cause tho sword of the spirit to spring forth and encourage the many who are now standing up to de clare aud act in defense of tho right ' Those conclusions are drawn from careful, practi cal observations, hence their boldness of uf tranee; and t '-day if the South would t uow away local feeling, and prejudice, t'iny would look upon this influx from the North as a God-send to their drooping and e ise enfeebled institutions. Theit system of manaj'mg men and things would throw nt back upon the ago of feudaliiy, when brut:' force and feats of arms were held in estimation, instead of lively christian feel ing and a true appreciation of acquired tal ent. Can we look upon this struggle in any other Jighl than that of being tho rousing up of Ficcdom and Christian Liberty, to shake oil the night mare of slavery, that has striven so long to crush with its coils the life blood of the I'nioii? No! L. FOOT. Mk. Editor: The above is a reply to a communication from one of a few men in tho North, who fear to encourage the efforts now going forth to quell a rebellion that has for its object the annihilation of those princi ples embodied in that Constitution, under which we have enjoyed so many privileges, and which was not formed until those form ing it first sought from the throne of Grace a divine aid; hence in tho eyes of tho Amer ican people it should be considered a Divine cause. As sutfering for the Truth gives a clearer appreciation of ils glorious effects, I, for ono, hope that our bravo follows will not (ear "the firo in the rear," aimed at them by some of our peace, ease loving philoso phers, who fear to acknowledge tho virtue of this movement, lest they be called upon to sacriftco local prejudice, und time served political opinions, and sir, tho inducements held out to enlist should be principlo first, and pay, rations and clothing sccoudary.

From thu ibitoani chmjeter of the call ' I presumo a rebel forc from Morgan oninty, orprchapn from Virginia, is threaieiiing that rarl at Kentucky. Rath county adjoins Morgan county, where we have supposed for s..tn weeks that John C. Breckinridge was collect ing a bsnd of rebels fer the purpose of steal ing, bcrmng and plundering. The proclama tion does not state what foes are near tlmt place. It is fair, however, to presume that the enemy spoken of is a pin t and parcel of tl ft clan that Stanton, (whom you I cv have at Camp Cbae.) was getting up when he wa -t arrested. I hac no doubt that Stan ton's Villainy to destroy the loyalty of tho people in thut region would have entitled b in to n Generalship in the rebel nuny, if Nelson bael not been too small for bim. for it seems that treason, theft and every thing that honest men t all ci lines, aro but so many i ecoiiuiiendiilions for otlico in the rebel army. 1 believe no man has ever been promoted to otliee in that concern who bad not cotn m tied some cl ime wuiLy of the pe nit 'ntia ry.

General Sheriuati's order, directing tho hea ls ol depat tnients under his command to estimate for funds to supply uu urmy of (iO.imit men, seems to have more signification than was at first supposed.
