Tie Tollowing narrative was related by Anthony Sherman, an oetojrcnariin, who heard the account from Washing ton's own lips : Tlte darkest period of otir levoluiion was, the year 1777, when- Washington, after experiencing many reverses, went into winter quarters at Yalta Forge. Often. 1 obsived teats course dovn the cliVeks of our.beloved commaudet when he ws conbidering the sufferings of his brave soldiers. Washington was in the habit of praying in secret and calling upon God for assistance; and it was only by the help of God we passed safely through those days of adversity. One day Washington spent the whole afternoon in hts 100m alone. When be came out I obseived that he was much paler llwn usual, 'wh.-n he related to me the following : While I was sitlin' at mv t.ibta lhi afternoon, engaged iu writing, nud my miu'd heavy wTih. sorrow, 1 suddenly ob eerved, directly opposite to me, a most beautiful female. 1 was so much sur prised, for X had given strict orders not to be disturbed, thai 1 could not find words at the moment to inquire the ob ject of this unexpected visit. Presently I interrogated 'my mysterious guest. Two, three, and even four times, I re pealed the question without, receiving mo iiswerytue only effect "being that she raised her eyes a little. 'I now experienced a. most curious sensation spread over my whole body. 1 wishfcjd to rise from my eat, but the gaze of my mysterious, visitor kept me spell bound.

For the third time.I heard the voice: 'Son of the Itepublicbehold and learn !'- "I looked towards American and saw populous villages and cities spread out from the Atlantic coast '.toulieTaeiflci vccaii. jigain 1 neanl tlitL-mvsteriou voice: 'Sjn of the Republic 'the cud of a century is near at hand; behold and learn !' "The da k form of the angel then turned" towards the Sjuth, and coming from Afiica.I observed a horrible phan tom make iis way to our countrr. It floated Alutvly .nnd heavily over our towns and the country; the inhabitants arose to make war on each other, and formed iu battle array. As I looked at this scene, I observed an angel sur rounded with light; on hisbcad he wore a beautiful crown.on which was inscrib ed Uur-word 'Union;' in his hand he held the American Star Spangled Ban ner; 1 his' he planted between the con- Jtemcmbtr, are.in Heaven, and 'm Iojuj s at the dew, descends J'rom Heaven to earth, "so long shall the Hejiulllc exist'.

A City Point, Virginia, correspondent of the Congregationalisl writes thus: 'About 'half of the time in the meet ing was taken up with singing.

Again I heard lb voice : 'Son of the Republic, the end of a century' is at hand; behold and learn 1' "The dark angel then put a trflmpet to his mouth, blew in it three limes, then dipped out some water from the sea with his h.md, and sprinkled it over Eutope, Asia arid Africa. "My eyes now beheld a most JerribI scene. From each of those countries daik heavy cloud1 arose anil united in one mass; thtough this mass dark-red lightning played. I aw troops of arm ed men marching, and then sail across the sea to America, which was imme diately covered by the black cloud. And I saw how those immense armies desolated the land, and laid towns and villages in ashes. I heard the roar of cannon, the clashing of swords, the cry of the victorious and vanquished mil lions, engnged in' Jleadly strife when again I heard thfc mysterious voice pro claim : 'Sou of the Republic, behold and learn.' "The dark -angel ihcu look up the trumpet and gaVe one long and terrible blow'. Suddenly, a light; burst, forth and drove away the dark cloud hover in" over America. At the same time William Johnson and Edwin Jones were both of them farmers, and they were alsoTienr neighbors.

Now, Mr. Jones had uo more' of a fam ily to 'support than his neighbor, yet the aspect of his house nud farm was very different. Old rubbish was kick ing around in his yard that should have been in less unsightly places; his hou?e looked weather-beaten and neglected; rags were seen inkpots where pines of glass are expected to be found; there weie large cracks in his brti, through which the winds of hiaven iiad free course; Wu apple trees were disfigured by old bark and dead limbs; in short, everything seemed to wear a look of. dilapidation and neglect. Edwin Jones, was a hard-working man, yet every thing was at loose ends with bim, and he often found himself wondering how it was that his neighbor Johnson kept along so smoothly and quietly, yet had everything in such perfect order. One rainy day iu the full, after har vesting was over, Johnson was at work in his tool chamber, when his neighbor Jones entered. 'Johnson.' said the latter, after he had watched the movement of his neigh bor's plane a few moments, 'how much did that sled of yours , cost? 1 have got to get 0110 this winter.'

'Well, neighbor Johnson, I don't see how iu the world you get. along so. ; Your farm don't produce any inoie than mine docs, and I don't believe you work as hard as I do.

In the long, warm days in haying and har vesting, the bottle used to be pationiz ed liberally, But I finally began to see that it was growing hard for me to re sist, and so, after deliberating upon the suhjvut, I came to the conclusion that rum and tobacco did me no good, and "right do me much evil, nnd I would leave them off, and so I did. So I j commenced laying up the money they cost me. 1 saw how much niihi be saved if I could only do the work my self I had been obliged to pay for, and so I began buying 3uch tools' as 1 tho't would come handy.

I' was afraid it might offeud you; it is a delicate matter, at best.' !l know it; but Edwin Jones is not the man to bo offended with a neighbor for friendly advice.' 'Well,' said Johnson with a look of extremo gratification, 'it s never too 0 v Jate too mohd, and if you gel in a pinch hundred dollars will come to me' Mr. Jones thanked his friend, with a suspicioous moisture shining iu his eye, aud shortly after took his leave'; The very next day he went into town and instead of filling bisif0wn jug and emp ty bo, he brought home a new augur; aud a proud and happy Man was be, at work with his. own tools. Time passed away, and he soon found himself the owner of quite a little lot of implements. This operated. ia. atony waye'for'good. Now that he had the ability to fix uj part, it made, no difference. At regular lutervals they tacked on n chorus, which, at first, was pertinculo the sub ject,'but which very soon wjs entirely foreign lo the sense,' yet ;the chorus must be had at nil events.
