A Story ti the Hndson. .
In the Slate of New YrV, ten jars
aro, arid on ihe banks of the Hudson.
not many miles above its mouth, lived
Graham Stiles, a retired money broker;
rich, proud and unscrupulous. He, wax
past his sixtieth year, of spare but. sin
ewy frame, and with cold, steel gray
eyes that glittered with a restbss, un
easy glance from beneath close drawn
and shaggy brows.
His house was larrje.though occupied
on!- by himself and an invalid widow
lady, with her daughter, besides a, few
None, save himself, knew why Gra
ham Stiles had given shelter for so mv
ny years to the Widow Lee and her
daughter Emily. As Emily grew from
her lovely girlhood into still more low
ly womanhood, becoming the exact
counterpart of her mother, Granam
Stiles found the hard faced .demon of
avarice yivlding amplv room in his bo
som for the softer passion of love. This
prompted hint to seclude her as much
as possible from society, that he might,
so educate her that she should look up
on him more as a friend than as a
guardian, and that step attaiued, to be
come both friend and lover.
In the summer of 1851), Graham
Stiles was strolling, at sunset, upon the
glassy lawn thai bordered the lofty
batiks of the Hudson! chafing bitterly
with the consciouiraesw that Emuy rath
er siiunnwl than esteemed him: when
heatjug voices as if from the face of

Not ten feet below him, seated upon J
a ledge of rock coaietl with soft and
thickly grown moss, sal Emily Lee and
a J:a:itisome yuug matt .of tweuty-tour
or tiie y euis ot ae, named William
Lewis, conversing :u a tone gentle and
thrilling, yet diitiucily and audible to
the keen ears so jealous above.

knotted brows grew, crimsom red, as I:

Willie concluded, he pleased sharp
teeth hard upon the nether lip, until a
drop of deep red blood trickled down
upon his cluu. l el he answered noth

The hut Surriver of Joaker HilL
The statement has frequently been
made by the newspapers, and indorsed
by Mr. Everett in his late Fourth of Ju
ly oration, that there is no one left of
that band of heroes who first withstood
the shock of Baitish arms in the open
field. Eighty-five years have. elapsed
since the, world renowned struggle, the
burden of probabilities would favor such
a conclusion; yet the statement is not
correct. There is one whoJtook part in
that memorable baltle.and iu subsequent
events of the Revolution, yet living,
"full of years," and venerated for his
moral worth, as well as for his age and
public sei vices.

reading by the window, or walking a

bears heavily, not only on the "exceed
ing sinfulness of sin,"' but oa the ex
ceeding: rascality of lying and stealing
a religion that-banishes .small meas
ures from ihe counters, small baskets
from the. stalls pebbles from the cotton
bags, clay from paper, sand from sugar,
chicory from coffee, otter from butter,
m etj, juice . from vinegar, Blum from
bread, strychnine from wine, water
from milkecans, and buttons from the
contribution . box.
The religion that is to save the world
will not pull all the big strawberries at
the top, and all the bad ones at the bot
tom. It will not offer more baskets of
foreign wine than the vineyards ever
produced bottles, aud more barrels
of Gennesee flour than, all die wheat
fields ' of New York grow, and all
her mills, grind. It will not make one
half of a pair of shoes of good leather,
and the other of poor leather, so that
the first shall redound to the Baker's
credit and the second lo his cash. It will
noifput Gouvin's stamp on Jenkins kid
gloves, nor make Paris bonnets in the
back-room of a Boston railintr's shop,
nor let apiece of velrei'that professes to
measure twelve yards, come te an un
