But there stood a beautiful child, a bin of some six oi eight summers, radiant as a May morning, and iu his baud a -mill boquct of xpiiug roses. 'Mt tnoilier sent these to you,' said he. in a soit-ioned voice, looking up bnii !y la o my )us. linked 1' 1 iXelainied. as 1 to' k hem. .loin his chub y ii-i ; 'ami heie ..oes your dear mother live?'

Oh ! thank you. my little man ; and tell your molher I thank lirtnor than I can it-II for I love flowers, was my answer, he turned nnd bounded aw y. 1 held the beautiful things in mr hand, and looked into their eyes, and hey seemed to find tongues to talk to me, and comfort me. They toid nit of a kind and genial heart near by, that knew of a strangtr, and sent this mes sage of loe and ood cheer, to lift the veil from her eyes, and peak hope to the sinking spirit ; and there came a glow from the centre, and spread out. over all the earth. 1 looked up ; and the sunlight gilded the forest, the house tops, the church -pii.. the dusty rail road track, and the blown and bare field?. The moms wens changed ; the broken plastering and bare walls were bloutuin'tr with fresh roses. I clasped them in m bauds, and pressed ilu-m to my lips, and drops of gratitude fell into their pure corollas, as 1 flew with them to the children, crying. "See ! wc arc not alone !'

A finifle artillery cartridge furnished powder fur the la" l muskets that the Americans filed. For some time longer they kept the- enemy at bay, confronting them with th butt end of their guns, and striking them with the barrels after the slocks we.e broken. The breastwork being abandoned, the ammunition all expended. Hie redoubt half filled with reguhus, and ou the point of being aur- rauiided, and no other reinforcements having arrived, al a little before four, Prescott gave the word to retreat. He himself was among the, last to leate the fori; ebcapirgunhurt, though with coat and waistcoat rent and pierced, by bar onets which he parried with his sword. The men, retiring through the sally port or leaping over the nails, made their way through their enemies, each for himself, without much older, and the dust which ro-e from the dry earth now powdered in the sun, and the smoke of the engagement, gave them some covering.

The redoubt, the brow of Bunker Hill, and the ptssage acrors the Charleston!! cauewai, were the principtl places of slaughter. Putnam, at the third onset, was ah sent, "employed in collecting men" for a reinfoi cement, and was encountered by the letreatiug party on the northern decIiMly of Bunker Hill. Acting on his own responsibility, ho now lor the lit st time assumed the supremo ditec lion. Without orders fiom any pe:on he milled such of ihe lugititesas would obey him, joined them to a detachment whi'ih tiad nut arrived ill sasou to share in ihe combat, and with a respectable torce took possession of Prosptct Hill, wheie he eiicaniped that vsry night. Repairing n head-fiiinrtera. Piccott offered with three regitueuis to recotir his post. But for himself he sought neither ndviucenieut, nor teward, nor praie, and hating perfoinied the best! service, never thought that he had done more tlisn his dmv. I: i ttie cotiiem porary record, that during the battle "no one appearctl to hate any command but Colonel Piescoit." and lhat "his bravely could never be enough acknow ledged and a; plauded." Tho camp loiii! rrpeaietl the story of his self-collected valor, anil a historian of the war, who best knew the judgments of the army, has rightly rc.wanled the "high est prize ol glory to Prescott nnd his companions." The British were unable to continue the pursuit beyond ihe Isthmus. They had already brought their best forcr into the. buhl; moie than a third of theo engaged lay dead or bl-cding. and the tirviiors weie fa.igued ami oterawsd by the courago of their adeisanes. The battle put su end lo all oiftnsive operations on the psrt of Gage. TIuj number of killed nnd wounded iu his aimt was by his own account at hoist 1.05J.

Car there had been a continued sheet of the! na ions, picotees, daisies, Japan lillies. fiom the Provincials; and the action was hot for double that period. The oldest soldiers had net or seen the like. Tho bailie of Quebec, which won half a continent, did not cost the lives of so many officers as the battle of Bunker Hill, which gained nothing but a place of ncaatpment. Sir William Howt, who was thought to have been wounded, was untouched, though his white stockings were stain- d irom bis walking through the tall grass, red with the blood of his soldiers i hat he did not Tall was a marvel. The praises bestowed, upon his apathetic valor, oa the gallantry of Pigot, on the conduct of Cliaton. reflected hoaor on lite untrained fanners, who. though inferior in numbers, bad required the display of the most etrenuous exertions of their assailants before they could be dislodged from tho defences which they had but four hours to prepare. The whole lots of the Americans amounted to 145 ki'led and missing. and 304 wounded. The brave Moses Parker, of Chelrnjford. was wounded, snd taken prisoner; lie died in Boston j-.il. Maj. Williard Moor received one severe wound al the second attack, and soon after another, which he felt to be mortal; so bidding farewell to those who would have borne him off, he insisted on, their saving thcmsi-lves, and remain ed lo die for the good cause, which he had served in counsel and in arras. Buckaiiuster was dangerously wounded, but recovered. The injury to Nixon was so great that he suffered for many months, and tmn.wly escaped with his lite. Thomas Gardner, a member of Congress fiom Cambridge, was hasten ing with some part of his legimeui to the redoubt, but as he was descending Bunker Hill, he was mortally wounded by a random shot. His townsmen mutinied for the rural statesman, to whom they hfd unanimously tendered their con fide nee; and Washington gave him the funeral honors due to a gallant officer. Andrew McCiary, on that day unsurpassed in bravery, returning to reconnoitre, perished by a chanc can non ball while on the isthmus. Just at the moment of the retreat.ftlt rJMrill tt l.tl,l. I"..

As Ihe moment for the ppeal to arms ap ptoached. he witched with joy the re vival of the generous spirit of New Etiglaad's ancestors; and where peril was greatest, he was present, animating not by words alone, but ever by hi ex amplo. His integrity, tie soundness ot his judgment, his ability to write readily and well, his fervid eloquence, his exact acquaintance with American rights and the infringements of them, rave authority to his advice in private, and in the Proviucial Congress. Had he lived, the future seemed burdened with his honors; he choerfully sacrificed all for his country, and for freedom. Bancroft's Iliitory of the United Slates Winter Protection of Plants. This is ihe month in which to attend to the wants of all tender shrubs and plstitr. There are many "things in our gardens, which, if they were as well provided for in Winter as the wild plsnts of the woods overhung by trees a"nd covered with leaves would need no fuither care; but when in the open ground, exposed to wind and frost and sunshine alternately, they will fare hard if not protected by artificial means. North of this city many shrubs and neailt all heibiceons plants aro benefit ed by a shglit covering, "blight, we a ry, for harm is sometimes done by too thick a blanket For nlanis. manv r.ersons use lont?! manure, putting a fork-full or two about each crown. Thisisery good, but for most things, a peck of forest leaves is the best protection. Thewt shed the rain like a roof.and keep the roots warm enouirh without heating them. They pyrethrums, snap-dragons and other half-hardy plants winter quite well, in this way. Tender shrubs may be protected easilr- Make a small mound of old manure or of leaves around the roots then bend down the branclfcs carefully gi)rtiniltayuu ground, nnd fasten than 'Ptreillrs Dowst head rises, a suppert should by short stakes. . Now, lay over them a few inches of leaves or any loote lit ter, and then aa inch or two of soil. All that they require is a light and porus covering to protect them from sudden changes of temperature. Of course, it is not expected to exclude frosteatircly, for, lhat will penetrate .twu or three feet in depth. ' - The above is alt'tbe t covenag'at hybrid perpetual roses need, and sacb shrubs as Forsy thia viridissinin, Reeve's spirea, and others of like habit. But some tender shrubs have such stiff branches lhat they cannot easily be bent to tho ground. These must have their boughs gathered up in a bundle, and then surrounded by a thin sheath ing of straw, or old mailing fastened in place by stout cords. If evergreen boughs are neatly tied around shrubs, the appearance is much better than that of straw or mats. And for front lawns we recommend this mode ; at a little distance, the effect is the same as that of handsomely trained evergreen bushes. Such tender roses as the Chinas, Bourbons, Noisettes and Teas.hybernate lest if put into a cool pit, covered with window-frame. But if the soil is well drained, they will sometimes (frith the exception of lie Tea roses.) go through ihe Winter safely out of doors. If this is tried, they should not only be covered with leaves and soil, but should have a little roof of boards, shaped like an inverted eate-irough, to shed excess of rain from them. Still, with the bet of care, many will die, and others will come out in the Spring a good deal scorched. Last Winter, we kept psrt of our lendercst roses by putting them in largo pota in November, keeping them in a carriage-houso chamber until December.then taking them into a light Ch,ynriiWNVrftrpnJrtlBffiVntygn'.Wff: Soutenir dels Malmaisou (Bourbon, ) Taglioni and Bougen (Teas.) and Ag grippina (China.) wintered wel', and flowered ?bundantly in the open ground throughout the past Summer. Again. we took up several China roses in No vember, laid ihetn flat en the ground, covered them with the dry tops of phloxes and a few leaves, and finally a few inches of soil; and these wintered belter than others of the same kind left standing in the ground and protected in the usual manner. We relate these experiments for what they are worth; they may benefit inex perienced amateurs. Is it too much to believe that the time will come when wo shall be able to Winter many of the lenderest plants out of door ? That will be a good time when it cooes. Cultivation of Hyacynths- in tus uocss, in glasses AND is mts AND IN BEDS. Few flowers are more deservedly popular than hyacinths. They are eas ily cultivated in the garden, or in the house; they exhibit a most attractive bloom and are dcliciously fragrant. Theio is. perhaps, no finer ornament for a window than a collection oi tr.ese bulbs flowering in glasses. The follow- ingMirections tor their care tromau rai lish catalogd. are timely and valua ble: 'In glasses. Neirly all hyacinths are suitable, more or less fur cultiviiug in glass, though, in nuking a selec tion for that purpose, a larger number of tingle varieties should be chosen, as the certainty of success is much greater ihati with the double kinds. In order- ing, special caw should therefore bo ta- ken to slate for what purpose the bulbs , may oe requireu, mat proper varieties may be selected. It is the natural ten dency of all roots to grow downward, avoiding tho light conequnily dark colored glasses are preferable for the growth of the hyaciuth.

Fill the glasses with soft clean water till it barely touches the boitoni of tho bulb. Then stand them in a dark cool cupboard or a cellar for at leasta month, to encourage the roots to form plenti fully before the bloom buds appear. Examine them occasionally while in the dark, and carefully remove any part. that may be decaying, at the same lime not injuring the youug roots Should the water become foul, change it, but not otherwise.

At a ball given' in Pyrmont, a: cele brated watering rdace in GermtuiT.jhe student, requested a yeang'Udy to dance with him. Just aa'the dance was about to commence the lady inquired of him - "With whom bate I the hoaor of df.ncing ?' 8 "I am tho tutor of Count Vo:i Z ." replied her partner. - "And a commoner, J presume?" she rejoined. To which he answered in tha affirmative. " "Oh, then." continued the lady, as she withdrew her hand, from that of the tutor. "I beg yoa-will excuse me, for mamma has forbidden me ta dance with a commoner." Tuts rebuff completely threw the modest preceptor out of countenance, for on the ere of a dance ia to lose caste for the rest of the-night if not longer. It is supposed to indicate "the existence of some moral taint discovered by the person who quiu the side of another, and which is exaggerated tato some thing heinous by tlie company, parti cularly if they aro utterly ignorant of what it is.
