The year 1781 was a dark and gloomy one for the Americans", who were then struggling for indepen dence. In South Carolina, affaire were in.a critical situation. Gen. Green made an unsuccessful attack on the British post of Ninety-Six, and withdrew his men beyond the Tiger and Broad rivers. Lord awdon followed him, but could iliot draw the patriot General into an engagement. At that period there stood, in North Carolina, a plain and unas suming house; it was a one-story building, neatly white-washed, and surrounded by a fence. Tbe gar den Lontianed many choice flowers; d the Hfcrrtrfai juaec okke 3Wd the doors and windows. It was the bouse of Mrs. Heath, who lived with her two daughters, while . , . oer son vjcoro wua m huibk- I ton's irmt fiirhtin'r for freedom. Kato, the eldest of tho daughteri1, : was a beautiful girl of sixteen sum- j mers ; her auburn hair hung in graceful curls down to her shoul dera, and ber face beamed with : kindness, while her eyes shone like MM stars that lit up tbe azure vault of heaven. One evening as Kate was stand- ing at the OOttege dojr, she bebttld two mounted officers approaching 1 hey were richly dressed, and one of them she recognized as Lord j Rawdon, tbe commander of the British forces in that part of the country. They rode up to her, and Kawdon leant over in his saddle. and said, in a kind voice, "Well, Miss, can you let me have the use of a room fjr& few minutes?" 'Yes, sir; our house is open to i you. 'Come, Colonel, let us hasten to business,' sai 1 Bewdon, dismount ing, while the Colonel did tbe suit, tbe latter leading the horses to the stable. Lord iluwdon advance 1 to where Kate was standing, and said. 'Whose house is this. Miss?' 'Mrs. Iieath's my lord.' 'IIu ! her won is in tbe rebel army under Washington, id he net Kate trembled at the insult, and she looked ui the Briton with a searct.ing glance. My brother is no rebel. Lord Bewdon ; he is fighting fur his country.' 'I am sorry fur that. He is a brave boy, and would, no duubt, a-ahe a good British soldier,' re turned Kawdon. ' Lord Kawdon, you insult me. I would sooner see George die a felon's death than see him in the King's army,' was tbe prompt an sw r. 'I see yon are a rebel, too. Miss Heath. But here comes the Colon- oI'eoJ.I RaAan u l,o saw from that the ii- wor.hy soldier coming so sne resoivea to piay tne eaves j drojper. She told her mother of her intention and she approved of it; and Kate placed herself in a position to hear the Britons' plan. It was a dangerous undertaking ; and she knew that if she was caught i in tho act of listening she would be treated as a spy. and perhaps exe j cutod, for Lord llawilon knew no mercy. Sha cautiously approached x9 door and looked through a crevice. Kawdon and his colonel were seated before a small table, on which lay maps. They were exam I in ing them closely, while Kawdon ! was explaining them to the colonel. Here is Green's camp,' said be, and hero is ours. AVe must make a bold Stroke, and if it be succesi- , ... , , . , ful, Green will be destroyed. 'I don't see why it should not succeed, do you, my lord ?' 'No; if our troops fight as well as they have heretofore, we shall succeed,' said Rowdon, his face as suming a triumphant expression. 'I shall feel happy when the Rebels are driven away from Car- olina, and then their rule will be over,' said Col. Roberts. 'We must crush Green, colonel. I do not want to go back to Eng- land and let it be said that I was j out-generalled by a rebel. No, j never I exclaimed Kawdon rising to his foet. iTM. ... l- U M.tnnly k'. , . . o. . j ,l colonel. 'We do. Have your regiment reacJy) and make your men fight like demons.' 'Let us go now. But hold ! what is the countersign for the picket to night, my lord?" "England,'' answered Lord Raw don, lowering bis voice. Kate listened to the Briton's plan with a wildly beating heart, and he resolved to save the patriot ar my. When she heard tbe counter- r sign she left tbe door, and buried herself in her household duties; and soon the two officers emerged from the room. "We must go, Miss Heath ; but first let me thank you for jour kindness," said Rawdon. 'Tour thauka are received,' re- j plied Kate. Their horses were saddled, and j the officers were soon on their way. j Kate watched them till they were ; out of sight, and then prepared for her perilous journey. She threw on a shawl, and went to the stable. Her fleet footed horso neighed as she entered, and she patted him on the head, and said, "Well, noble Selim, you must carry mo safely to-night; for if you do not, Gen. Green wiil bo destroyed.' The animal seemed to understand M""' tox he gave a loud whinny. i Ou heroine saddled Seltm, led bim I from thestable, aud was soon riding j toward Gen. Green's enrap, which u- :t mt m 'r fii rn i'H fi .I'l I r .-ni r . - i -- - i swiflK", for she wanted to reach her destinatijii in time to let the patriot general form his men to meet the assault. The British pickets were four miles distant; and s,ho would be compelled to pass through their lines; but as sho was in possession of the countersign, she did not fear tho result. Soon ! Kate saw tho piekei'e baonet j Green came to her, and joyfully ex gleam in the moonlight, and heard claimed, 'Good news ! Lord Kawdon hirn cry out : Who goes there ?' 'A friend, with the countersign.' Advance, lrieud, and give the countersign.' She approached tho picket, and whispered, 'England!' 'All right; pass on. But stop!' ciried the picket as ho caught a glimpse of her face. Kate stopped her horse, and laid her hand on a pistol. The picket approached, and said. 'Is that you Miss Heath T 'It is Guy,' returned Kate; for sho recognised the soldier to be : Guy Jackson, who had often visited the gardener at their bouse. Where are you going to-night, Miss Kate F he a-ked. 'To see Mrs, Blake ; she is very '. ill." 'Just like you. Miss Kate always netting the sick ; you are a minis lering angel,' said the Brish soldier. Thankyou tor the cot St. Guy. but I must be going. Good nieht P Arid Kat wa ajrain on her jour ney. while tho picket returned to his post. She had to pas- four miles yet ere she would be safe, to she urged on ber steed. Before she had gone a hundred yards from Guy Jackson, a dozen mounted Britons roJe furiously up to the picket, and their leader cried oat. 'Did any person pass this post e shot t time since ?' 'Yes, sir,' was the pieket'e reply. 'Do you know who it was V 'I do; it was Miss Heath.' 'Had she the countersign ?' 'She bad.' 'I fear she is safe. Forward men ! ' If she escapes, Gep Green is saved! A hundred golden guineas and a j commission to the man who ;' catches her!" cried tbe leader of J band, as they dashed af ter the brave girl, leaving the picket in a state of bewilderment. Kate soon heard the sound of her pursuers, and she pushed on faster. It was a race for life or death. The British horses were fresh, while hers was beginning to 6how signs of fatigue. 'Forward, Selim ! Yon must take me to Gen. Green's camp 1' said Kate to her horse. But her enemies gained upon her, and one of them seemed bent on cac-1j ing ner, lor ne was home jarus ; B AF - I in advance of his comrades. Kate heard tho omnious tramp of his horse and drew her pistol. Nearer ho came, until he was at ber side, and then cried out, 'Halt, you vile rebel I These were his last words, for Kate fired, and the bullet crashed j though the date when the seats of through his brain. The others did j these Senators will become legallj not stop to look at their comrade, ! vacant may appear a long way off, but pressed on. They neared her : yet this Fall nine of the States again, and another trooper received n;a death wound. The remainder halted; and a moment afterwards ehe heard the American picket cry outj .Yno goes there ?' &tQ Heat0 - cried our heroine, M ghe dashed th h tbo ,ino Tbe soldier had raised his gun, but wben ho heard her name, it was lowered, and he answered, 'All right.' Tho American camp was reached; Kate threw herself from the saddle, and placed her faithful horse in charge of a soldier. 'Where is Gen. Green's tent?' she asked. 'To the right, there, where you see that light, replied tbe man, pointing to the place. She entered the General's tent, and found him engaged in writing. Ha raised his eyes, then arose to here at a late hour, Miss Heath.' 'I do, General. You are in dan ger." 'How is that ?' exclaimed Green. The brave yirl told her story, and the Ueneral grasped her hand, while tiie tears trickled down his war worn checks. 'Thank Heaven! you have saved my army, Miea Heath ! I can never repay you I' 'I want no payment. Thetbought j that I have done my duty, and the thanks of Gen. Green, are worth more than gold and diamonds,' was the heroic reply.

Wire as a Moral Pruning Knife. A judicious wife is always snip ping off from her husband's moral nature little twigs that are growing in the wrong direction. She keeps him in shape by continual pruning. If you say anything silly, she will affectionately tell you so. If you declare you will do some absurd thing, sho will find means of pre venting you from doing it. And by far the chief part of all common sense there is in this world unques tionably belongs to woman. The wisest things which a man com monly does are those which his wife counsels him to do. A .Sleepy David. In a recent small town on the Mississippi lived a man who made horse-trading a business. He bought up horses for a city market. arid was considered pralty good oa a trade. One day, a long, lean, queer, greon-lookiog specimen of the Western country arrived at tbe dock with a boat load of horses. He inquired for the horse jockey. "Daddy sent me down with some horses," ho said, in a half idiotic tone. ' Who is he?" "Daddy." "What do you want for yonr horses ?" 'Daddy aid you could eet your price," waa the response. "L.et me go down and look at your horses," aa.d Brown, and ac cordi.:ry they wereTooBlT the boat. Brown examined the horses, and j named tbe prico be would give for this one and for that, and the coun- ( try bumpkin made no objection. although some of the offers were not more than one-balf the worth of the animal. One ot the bystander-is aid to-the countryman that he W8 being cheated, but he said : "Daddy said Brown would set the price," and so Brown bad it hie own way. At last they erne to another an- low." "Guess not." said the fellow. Let s try 'em. I'll bet tha whole boat load of horses on 'em.'' Brown smiled. "I'll stake five thousand dollars against your boat load," aaid Brown, winking to thecrowd ; "and these men." selecting two shall ho'd the stakes." Brown's five thousand was in trusted to one, and the other went on board tbe horse boat. One of the crowd started to re monstrate with tho idiotic fellow but he only responded : "Golly ! d id told me he could run ; seme, and daddy ought to lose, if he was such a tarnal fool as to tell ! me that when he couldn't." Brown's sleek racer was brought : down and Brown mounted him. The countryman led out his animal and clambered on his back, looking as uncouth and awkward as the horso he proposed to ride. The word was given and they started amidst the laughter of the crowd. At first Brown was at tho head, and it looked as if the poor fellow was to be badly beaten, when suddenly his horso plunged forward i nnrl I inckcv was left far hehind. , , , , Such going had not been seen in , , . .. those parts for a long time, and poor 1 , , TJ , u Brown was crest-fallen as the cheers of the bystanders fell on his ears, ... j .. -j "I'll take tho 'spondulix, ' said . ... LUL" ClHIiUI V IJKIIJ, 1 I'JMI V A-SEU was right. Tho ancrmal can git around a little." Brown tried to say it was all a joke, bat tho fellow would have his money. "I guess I won't trade today,' he said, as he put up his old roogh leather povket book, "I'll go back to daddy." Correct Speaklns. We advise all young people to acquiro in early Tifo tho habit of using good language both in speak- ing and in writing, and to abandon as carl3 as possible tbe uso of slang words and phrases. The longer they live the more difficult the ac quisition of such language will be ; and if the golden ago of youth the proper season for the acquisi tion of language bo passed in its abuse the unfortunate victim of education is very probably doomed to talk slang for life. Money is not necessary to procure this education. Every man has it in his pow r. He has merely to use tbe language which he roads instead of the slang which he hears, to form his taste from the best speakers, and writers, and peets of the country ; to treas ure upchoice phrases in his memory, and habituate himself to their use avoiding at the same time that pedantic precision and bombast which bespeak rather tho weakness of a vain ambition than the polish of an educated mind. There is no man, however low in rank, who may not materially benefit himself by following this advice, and culti vating at the same time such morals and manners as correspond in char acter with good words.
