A NARROW FSCAPK.
"Come, Jut-, tell ua whiit made you
turn pale awhile ago when Jiark snid thnt
he hnd si-pii a grave, and aaked whose it
was ?
"Bah, boy ., turn pale did I? There
are circumstances in the lives of most
men who live on the froulier, which, to
hare them recalled, will make them turn
pale. And mentioning that grave and
asking whose it wan, recalled a fearful
event in my experiences But us the
night is young yet 1 will tell you about
it; and perhaps it will be a warning to
you never to trust too much to a stranger,
or throw temptation in bis way."
Thus spoke your humble servant soma
months ago to a parly of prospectors, of
wbom be was. wag one. I be following
is the story to which I alluded above :
Several years ago I was ont with a
party prospecting for silver high up on
the Gila river We had been some iime
without meeting with any success, and
were returning to Fort Yuma, disgusted
with the country. We had left the Pi
tuot village a duys' journey behind us,
when we fell in with a man traveling the
same way that we were. He was with
out grub or blankets, and said he was
going to California.' As we had some
spare mules we told him that if he could
ride and pack a saddle he could go with
ns as far as Fort Yuma. None of us
liked the looks of the fellow. lie had
such a thoroughly villainous expression.
But as he seemed so badly used up we
took pity on him, and made the ofTer
that we did.: He accepted without any
hesitation. We found him taciturn,
never speaking unless he was spoken to.
When we camped he would take the sad
dle of his mule and go off by himself,
never helping to get the grub ready;
and when it was ready he would come
and pitch in with the rest of us. However,
though we did not like him or his actions,
we said nothing, thinking be might have
some secret sorrbw that we had no right
td pry into. We had traveled about two
days, when what I am about to tell you
occurred.
We had camped at noon, and as the
weather was warm, some one proposer!
that we should take a bjith. A11 bail full
that it would be a deliciously cool amuse
ment, bathing in the shade of the cotton
wood trees which hung over the banks of
the river. We stripped instanter, and
were soon enjoying ourselves gloriously.
I had a belt round ma with several twen
ties in it, and took it off to give me free
play in the water. 1 laid it down on nay
clothes carelessly, never thinking ot hid
ing it from any of the company, as they
all knew that 1 had the money, and I bad
no idea that the stranger would be tempted
to take it As I came out of the water,
I noticed the stranger looking very lov
ingly at my belt, and thought no morn
about it. That night, from some cause, I
could trot sleep well, and when I would
fall into a state of unconsciousness, I was
troubled with such wild-like dreams that I
would rather I had remained broad
awake. At last, about midnight, I went
to sleep soundly ; how long I lay I do
not know, but I wakened suddenly to
find some one kneeling over me, and
very carefully cutting my shirt open.
Now I always had the power call it
presence of mind or anything else of
comprehending in an instant all that is
trains on around me. no matter from how i
sound a sleep I may be waked. ' '
It is anythiug but pleasant to wake
and find one's self in the power of a des
perado who will have no hesitation in
blunging a knife into your heart.
J felt myself in anything but an envia
ble situation, knowing that the slightest
indication oq my part of being awake
would cause the villain to give me be
tween the ribs the length of his bowie or
the contents of bis pistol. For, although
I could not see his pistol, I felt sura that
be had it handy. To secure my pistol
without letting him know that I was
awake, was a very delicate operation,
and I attempted to accomplish it in the
following manner: My pistol and bowie
knife were both under my saddle, which
J nsed for a pillow. I threw op my right
arm: over my neaa, tailing care not to
touch the robber, and yawned as if I was
half awake, but ready with my lelt Hand
to catch bis arm in the event of bis at
tempting to stab me. I bad my eyes
partly shut, so that he conld not easily
see tbem glisten, but sufficiently open to
see his every move, which I could easily
do, as it was a clear starlight night On
the instant that 1 moved, be raised bis
arm to strike, and I was nearly betray
ing to him my being awake by throwing
ap my left band, but some impulse pre
vented me from doing it, and he held his
knife supended to give the blow bad
made another move -- -
When I threw my baad over my bead,
with the same movement I placed it un
der the saddle and oil the bott of my
pistol, which was cocked ready for use,
I lay ia that position for about half a
minute, but it seemed like an hour. By
that time I bad power over my breathy
V
MEMPHIS. TENNESSEE.:' MONDAY EVENING. SEPTEMBER 17,
W. which Oil waking came very thick
As soon as he thought that I was fast
asleep again, he lowered hi hand and
began operating on my shirt, clearing it
away from the belt. Then I thought my
opportunity had come, and tried to jerk
my six-shooter, but it was foul some
way, and it would not come, i thought
that my time had arrived, fur as quick
as thought be drew and struck with his
knife. He struck at my throat. My eyes
were broad open then, and 1 saw where
the knile was coining, liy a quick, in
voluntary movement, threw myself
aside, and he must have overreached
himself, for the knife stuck into the sad
die, and so tight that he could not get it
out. , . ,
In trying to get my pistol, my hand
touched the cold silver lull ol my bowie,
Instinctively 1 took buld ol it, abandon
i nil the pistol, and was nerving my arm
fur the blow wheu I felt the cold muzzle
of his pistol against my forehead. I
struck out blindly, and, ns 1 did so
there was the stunning report of his
pistol. How I escaped I do not know;
my fuee was blackened with the powder,
and my whiskers nearly burned oil, but
that was all ibe damage done me. My
blow, though struck at random, had
proved a severe one. My Vhil'e had gone
into the left side of his neck inside of
the collar bone. The knife must have
reached his heart, for as I drew out to
strike again, he fell on me with his whole
weight, and his blood spirting till over
my face. He gave one quiver, and
stretched out bis length and lay perfect
ly still stone dead I
The whole transaction did not take
over three quarters of a minute. The
report of the pistol had aroused the com
pany every man sprang to uis arms,
Some 'were looking for the mules, while
others were asking who tired the shot
and where the Indiuns were. I colled t
the hoys to take the dead man off me
for I was as weak as a child. A couple
of them did as I requested, while others
threw fresh sage brush on the hull
smouldering camp fire, and we soon bad
plenty ot light to see what had happened.
I told the bovs all about what had oc
curred. ' We found all the mules in their
places but mine, which was staked off
about twenty yards from camp, with one
of the other boys saddle and bridle, on
her. I went to the river and cleaned
myself from his blood, and then sat down
by the camp lire, where 1 remained till
morniug, unable to sleep.
CONGRESSIONAL IM0MSM.
Radical Massachusetts Convention
liosTON', Sept. 1.1. In Hie afternoon
. . ,
the convention adopted an address to
the people of Massachusetts. The ad
dress says :
We beheld the strange tpeclnclo of
the President of the United States delib
erately placing himself at the head of
the combination of half reconstructed
rebels and their defeated Northern allies,
go ng about fee country accompante
y a por ion of hs cabinet, and debounc
ing ibe leg'slat've h-anches of the gov-
rrnDert as an illegal und traitorous
body, bagging upon the verge of the
government, wb'cu government he alone
proposes to be: and avowing principles
and pu. poses, t ie logicul result of which
must be n violent attempt to subvert
Congress, or ot the very least a repudia
tion of all its legislation since the war
broke out.
"We cannot be insensible that, until the
term of this dangerous man shall expire,
the financial and business interests of the
country will be subject to disturbance.
All the legislation of Congress is liable
to an overthrow, or a duniul of its valid
ity. Ibe amendment to the Constitution
prohibiting slavery is of a precarious and
doubtful permanence, and there is immi
nent danger ot losing everything which
we won by successful war on land and
sea.
The ajdress then declared that Con
gress ought not only to be sustained, but
strengthened at the coming election
hrougnout the country.
Second Tnat the country has already
suffered enough from the presence of
traitors in the eapitol, and the greatest
caution against be entrance of, disloyal
conspirators or half-constructed Union
ists oueht to be exercised, and no States
or communities ought to be represented
in the Sena'.e or House unless evidence
is given, satisfactory to the representa
tives and people of the North and the
loyal people of the South, ihut such
S ates or communities, as well as the
men chosen to represent them, are loyal,
and likely o remain so. ,
Third That so long as there exists a
party dominant in some of the States,
and defiant in all, which hopes by Presi
dential aid to break down the Congress
ional control over the question of recon
structed, and reinstate in their seats the
representatives of trenson and rebellion,
the people have no security except in
their own continued vigilance against a
disastrous reaction which may put back
the cause of progress many years,
and
disgrace the country in the eyes of the
civilizad world.
Fourth That we desire the restoration
of all the States to the Union, under con
ditions of justice and liberty. ) ap
prove the amendment to the Constitution
proposed by Congress; and now pending
before the States, and that we are tally
prepared to believe the declaration ol the
Southern Unionists, made at Philadcl
hia. that there can be no safety to the
country until the national birthright of
sii a rag. ami equality before tne law De
conferred upon every citizen of the
States they represent- The principles
and tradition's of the commonwealth im
pel her to second this demand so sol
emnly made for the complete enfran
chisement of an American and demo
cratic policy of government
Finally, fellow-citizens, we recognize
the fact that all questions of reconstruc
tion, of suffrage, -of protection to the
freedmen, of securing to the persecuted
Unionists of the South, resolve them
selves into these: Shall the people who
saved the country still control it T Shall
the soldiers of the Union whose bravery
decided on the field the fate of the war,
and whose services will be held in ever
lasting remembrance, reap the rich
rewards of their labors in a regenerated
country T In thf words of an eminent
Tennessee loyalist, now the guest of the
people of Massachusetts: "Shall we
reconstruct the rebels, or shall they
reconstruct as f . .
The address was aaanimonsly adopted.

BELLE BOYD.
Her App.aranoe as " Pauline."
; A eorreHpoudent of the Mobile Adver
tiser, in a letter dated Liverpool, July
21, writes as follows;
1 had the. pleasure last night of wit
nessing Miss Bella Boyd's rendition of
the character of " Pauline" in the Lady
a Lyons. The announcement that the
" Confederate heroine " would appear for
one night only, and as an especial favor
to Mr. Cowper (a talented young actor
of the lioyal Amphitheatre), whose bene
fit came off last uight, filled the spacious
building to its utmost capacity. By
"going early," I aiiunaged to obtain a
seat where a tolerable view of the stage
could be had, and in a position that
ervery word uttered by the actors could
be distinctly heard. The play itself is
one that I never greatly admired, and do
not at present remember of -ever having
been particularly pleused at any repre
sentation of it, that it had been my
fortune to witness, but. if the fine
points in the character which Miss Boyd
undertook last night were ever brought
out, she did it In the scene where Mel
notto (Mr. Cowper) unnineki himself, as
it were, and reveals bis true condition in
life to her, she " brought the house
down " in tbinders of applause. At. the
conclusion of the piece she was called
for vociferously, and appeared in answer
to the long continued summons, accom
panied by the gentleman in whose favor
she had consented to play. Mr. Cowper,
in her name, thanked the audience for
their kindness toward a novice; and re
marked for himself, thnt he hoped that
so good a beginning would be followed
up by the lair debutante, and prophesied
a reputation e'(ual to that of any of the
bright galaxy of stars that have, from
time to time, graced the English stage,
tine would think that a woman who has
faced shot and shell who has endured
hardships almost incredible in the ser
vice of her country who has led by the
nose some very astute Federal officers
one would imagine that such a womun,
brave and noble in thought and action,
would be the last to exhibit timidity be
fore a favorably inclined oudience. But
this fault for fault it could be slyled--was
the only faint drawback that could
be perceived in the general excellence
of Miss Boyd's acting. And this same
timidity (or it may have been nervous
ness) only added in the eyes of many, to
the charm that seemed to lie in her every
word und gesture, but of course early
tiewspuper paragraphistic critics will not
so note it No announcement has been
made as to whether Miss Boyd is to adopt
the stage as a profession, but it is thought
by muuy thot she limy be induced to
turn her unquestionable histrionic talent
to pecuniary advantage. Anotner leu
lure of the evening that w i- . rominent
and one that must have be. Jraloful to
the feelings of the brave hearted girl,
was the loud applause from the unusuully
large number of Americans assembled
to witness her appearance."
GENERAL LEE'S DAIGIITER.
A Letter from the General.
Annie, a daughter of Gen. Robert E
Lee, died at Warren White S.i,h.ur
Springs, N. C, Oct 20, aged 1-i years,
and was buried in th. private graveyard
of Mr. Win. D. Jones, proprietor of tho
springs. A monument, costing $100,
wag erected over her remains, on the 8th
inst. bv the citizens of the place. Gen.
Lee was invited by a committee of ladies
to be present on the occasion und he rc
plied us follows ;
Kociiti, Baths, July 2j, IhoS.
Ladies: 1 hue read with deep eino
tion your letter of the 18th inst., inviting
mvselt and family to witness the eiec
tion of a monument over the remains of
niv daughter ut Warren lute Sulphur
Springs, on the rtb ot next month.
1 do not know now to express to you
my thanks for your great kindness to her
while living, and tor your affectionate
remembrance of her since dead. 1
My gratitude for your attention and
consideration will continue through life,
and my prayers will be daily offered to
the throne ot the Most nigh tor liis
boundless blessing upon you.
I have always cherished the intention
of visiting th. tomb ot her who never
gave me aught but pleasure ; but to af
ford me the satisfaction which I crave,
it must be attended with more privacy
than I can hope tor on the occasion you
propose.
liut there are more controlling consid
erations which will prevent my being
present.
tier mother, who tor years has been
afflicted with a painful disease, which
has reduced her to a state of helplessness,
is this far on ber way to the mineral
springs, which are considered the bist
calculated to afford her relief. My at
tendance is necessary to her in her jour
ney, and the few weeks 1 have now at my
disposal is the only time which can be
devoted to this purpose.
But though absent in person my heart
will be with you, and my sorrow and de
votions will be mingled with yours.
I bope my eldest sons and daughter
may be with you, but s they are distant
from me I caunot tell, under the circum
stances, where your invitation may find
tbem. I feel certain, however, that
nothing but necessity will prevent their
attendance.
I inclose, according to your request,
th. date of my daughter's birth and the
inscription proposed for the monument
over her tomb. The latter are the last
lines of the hymn which she asked for
just before her death.
I am, with great respect your obedient
servant, - R. E. Lee.
The lines referred to are :
" Perfect and trwe ar all his ways,
V hom heaven adore, and earlh obeys."

Nsw Turk, September 13. A new
ministry was formed by the Emperor of
Brazil, after consultation with hi. coun
sellor, a distinguished liberal, who baa
formed the government of men of similar
antecedents. On the 4th of August the
new ministry entered the chambers,'
where they were received with decided
opposition ia the galleries, and hastily
ilJ1
u
adjourned, but on a vote they afterwards
found themselves in a majority, though
a small one. -' 1
James Watson Webb, the United
Sillies minister, arrived here on the 2d
of August. Tho storeship Onward was
in the harbor. Tho Brooklyn sailed on
the 4th ull., for Buhiu. - The Chili-Peruvian
fleet was expected ' in the river
Platte.
The Ileralits R'o Janeiro correspond
ence of August 8th, says of the war in
Paraguay that the allies are where they
were at our last advices in a morass
under the guns of the enemy. They
were still unalile to advance or withdraw,
The smallpox had broken out in & malig
nant form among the allied soldiers, and
physicians were so scared it was proposed
to imprison a number. A seizure of
8(100 horses had been made for use in
removing the camp. No change has been
reported on board the fleet, which ia
lying where it was before, fishing for
torpedoes.

Scandinavian Emigration The Ex
plosion at Albany.
New York, Sept 13. Two cflin-rs of
the Danish government are in this coun
try at present to superintend the settle
ment of 8000 Scandinavian emigiants,
who are to arrive by the steamers of the
new line established between this city
and the Baltic ports. The government
of the Scandinavian nations in Europe
are taking a lively itterest in the welfare
of the emigrants from those countries,
and have forwarded these gentlemen ns
government agents for that purpose.
The Time special gives four addi
tional names of the killed by the explo
sion in Albany yesterday. Besides those,
the bones and portions of the body of
another man have been found, but lie is
unknown. Two men named McConnell
und Brennan are missing, and it is not
known but others are lost. A man
named Martin, a book-keeper at the ad
joining lumber dealer's, was so badly in
jured he had to be taken home.
Thrilling Incident in th. Rapids of tho
St. Lawrence.
The Montreal Jleview soys that as the
steiiiner Lady Klgin, plying between Og .
ilensburg and Montreal, was entering the '
riipuls known as the Cedars, she suddenly
lulled to obey her rudder; an instant ex.
amiiiRtion told the pilot and his assistants
that the chain by which it was connected
was snapped, and n simultaneous shout
I mm the pilot-box, captain, we re stove,
"we re lost, apprised tnpt. Le itt that
lliey were in the midst ot the Beet hi n
waves end rocks unliclmcd, disabled an
helpless. Alarm at this moment would
have created an uproarumong tae passe n
gers ut once fatal. With a coolness ulmrst
stoic, Cspt. DeWitt communicated the
frightful position of things to only three
or four, proceeding at the same time to
connect tho chain, lie had scarcely
commenced the work when the vessel
siruek a rock, lurching it till almost
dipping water on tbe Kit, und announc
ing to all on board the full extent of the
.Linger. Ibe boat alter striking con
tinued to float sideways, and the only
resource for life uppeuresl to exist in a
rapid but desperate push to gain the
lower mouth of the grge. Captain De
Witt accordingly commanded "steam at
full head," and a velocity by the com
bined power of the steam and current
truly appalling, and that would nave
riven in countless fragments tbe cratt.
had it touched a single point of the rocks
threatening it, the vessel dril'ied in tri
umph through the rapid, i-in long the
open water in safety.
