An After Scene In Battle. Tho late disaster on board the Frinccton gave Ui scarcely a glimpse of actual warfare and from an account written by a clergyman, ot what be witnessed just after the battle of Sol t'.en, 1 will quote a pretty fair specimen of what war is. "At ono o'clock'' 6ays he, "the cannonading ceased and I went out on foot to Soldcn in or der to learn to whose advantage the battle hnd turned out. Towards evening, seven hundred of tho Russian tugatives came to Soldcn, a pi tiful sight, indeed sonic holdingup their hands, cursing and swearing others praying, and praising the King of Prussia without hats,, without clothes some on foot, others two on a horse, will) their heads and arms tied up some dragging along by the stirrup?, and others by the horses' tails. "When the battle was decided, and victory shouted for the Prussian army, I ventured to the place where the cannonading wus. Alter walk ing some way, a Cossack's horse came running full speed towords me. I nounted him, nnd on my way for seven miles and a-halfon this side the field ot Iwitlle, 1 found the dead and the wounded lying on the ground, sadly cut to pie ces. The farther I advanced, the more these poor creatures lay heaped upon one another. "The scene I never shall forget. The Cos sacks, as soon as they saw me, cried out, "Dear sir, Watkr! Watkb ! Watkr!" Righteous (ad, what a sight ! Men, women and children, Russians and Frussians, carriages, horses and oxen, chest and baggage, all lying upon one a nother, lo the height of a man!

The brig Pandora, Capt. Paxton, sailed from this port early last March on a trading voyage to the island of St. Domingo. Nothing re quiring particular notice occurred until she ar rived at Port ait Prince, where her cargo, (con sisting chiefly of provisions,) was purchased by 1 resident Riviere, who stipulated that it should be landed at Aztta, and that the vessel should also call nt Jacmcl and there receive on board some military for the use of tho southern di vision of the nrmy. Agreenbly to this engage ment, the Pandora touched at Jacmcl, took on board a deck load of field pieces, powder, shot and about twenty llnyticn soldiers, a,nd pro ceeded to Azua, where she arrived on the 1 1th of April. On the afternoon of the same day a sloop arrived, and reported that she had been fired at by one of three armed schooners that were cruising in the offing. The master of the sloop also informed Capt Paxton that the schooners belonged to the Spanish faction, then in arms against tho government, and had no doubt recci red intelligence of the service on which the Pandora was employed, and would probably make an attempt to capture her. Capt. Paxton inclined to the same opinion, and made arrangements accordingly. That night he discharged his deck load into the fcloop, which belonged to the government, and re ceived on board two twelve pounder carron ades and a long brass French nine pounder, which, with two short sixes belonging to itic Pandora, were ranged on the starboard side. Next morning, Monday, April l.", there being no vessel in sight in the offing, Capt. Paxton commenced discharging the cargo, which had to be boated ashore. About 10 A. M., two schooners were seen standing in under a press of sail before the sea breeze. After Capt. Paxton had surveyed them through the gluss, he gave orders to clear the decks for action. A large quantity of bread in bags, with which the decks were lumbered, was stowed amidships, in the place usually oc cupied by the loiig boat. Behind this wall of bread he stationed the Ilayticn soldiers, in case their service should be required as small arm men, preferring to havo the brig's crew alone to inanago the great guns. As before remarked, her guns were all on the starboard side. When the decks were cleared, Capt. Paxton clapped a spring on his cable and brought the vessel's starboard broadside to bear sea ward. The guns were next loaded with round and grape, the American ensign displayed at tho peak, and the penant at the main. In the meantime the two schooners had approach ed within a mile of the Pandora, side and side, wing and w ing, steering right towards her. They still kept on, until they were about half a mile distant ; then, quick as thought, they brailed their foresails up, came to the wind on opposite tacks, threw out Spanish flags, and, without hailing the Pandora, (Kinred the con tents of their broadsides into her. Cupt. Pax ton, with coolness and decision, ordered the men stationed at the guns not to tire until the smoke had cleared away, and then to take good aim, and let the enemy have it. No sooner had the 6inoke passed away than the Pandora's broadside was fired with terrible effect .Not a shot was thrown away, and even above the din of battle were heard the screams of the wound ed and the dying. Without returning another broadsides, the enemy tacked in succession, and brought their other broadsides to bear; but before they could discharge them, the Pandora's guns were re-loaded, and the three vessel's fired almost at the same instant. The enemy's euns appeared to he elevated too high to injure j the Pandora's hull, but they cut her running r'?"'n? 'n many places. After the second broadside, the schooners edged down upon the Pandora, and discharged a volley of musketry, which riddled her bulwarks and rigging, but wounded no one. The Ilayticn soldiers, be hind the bread bags, w ere ordered to return the fire, but they were so ignorant of the uso of fire arms as to place in jeopardy the lived of their ! friends, instead of their enemies. Their ser vices, therefore, during the rest of tho engage ment, were dispensed with. Another broad side from the Pandora made the schooners haul off, and play at long balls with their long toms. But even iu this they were matched, for the brass piece on the forecastle returned their fire with interest. Again they approached, and now the action became general. Ixxtd and fire on both sides as fast as possiblo w as the or der of the day. In this manner the action con tinued nearly an hour, when another schooner wae discovered close at hand. When she came up, boats filled with men were sent from her on board of the other two schooners. Then all three bore down towards tho Pandora, evi. dently with the intention of attacking her on both sides. But Capt. Paxton, who had fore seen such an event w hilo they were manceu vreing, hoisted his foretopsail yard to the mast head, and stationed a boy aloft to let the Mil mBjnrity) he i(a rrincip of nepublica, from which Sunbury, Northumberland Co. fall if it fchould be necessary. Seeing the din position of the enemy, he gave them in suc cession a raking shot, as his guns bore, then cut awoy his spring and cable, set the foretop sail, and run in bofore tho wind. Being per fectly acquainted with tho harbor, ho laid his vessel broadside on the beach, still presenting the starboard side to the enemy, Tho guns were onco more brought to bear on them, and another, tho last broadside was discharged. They did not return the fire, but hauled their wind out of tho bay, leaving tho Pandora un vanquished, even though she was ashore. Capt. Paxton and his crew gave three cheers for the American flag, and thus closed this glo rious encounter. The crew of the Tandora, all told, consisted of eight men and a boy ; of these one man had a toe torn off by tho recoil of a gun, and ano ther's face was burned with gunpowdor ; these were the only accidents which befel the crew. Tho vessel had her starboard side riddled with musketry the main rail Fhot away, amidships running rigging and sails cut long boat shot away tho quarter of the jolly boat stove ono maintopmast backstay on the starboard side of the main rigging shot away. The three schooners were vessels of about UK) tons, and mounted six carronades and a long torn each. The two who bore tho brunt of the battle must have suffered severely in the loss of men, besides having their hulls cut up. Subsequently Capt. Paxton was informed that they had over forty killed, and a largo number tvmin.ln.l When tho enemy had disappeared, Capt. Paxton ordered the jolly boat, Uic only one left, to bo manned, as ho intended to go ashore, and ifpossible procure tho means of still defending his vessel, should she bo again attacked. The poor Ilaytien soldiers were so terrified at the idea of seeing the boat depart, that they jump ed overboard and nine of them perished. To calm the fears of those who were saved, Capt. Paxton returned on board and assuring them that lie had no thought of leaving them. The next day no enemy appearing, the Pan dora was lightened, and a day or two afterwards was hove afloat, without having sustained any material damage under water. On the 2Jdshe was onco more under canvass on her way to Port au Prince, where she arrived on the 2fth, and was greeted by the inhabitants with mea sureless applause. On the pissnge home the crew subscribed for a piece of plate to be pre pensed to Capt. Paxton, as a testimonial of their respect for his gallant conduct. Of Capt. Paxton and his crew it is not neces sary to make a single remtrk in theii praise. Their actions, though imperfectly sketched, spenk for then?. The facts 'hat, during the hour and a quarter the action continued, they discharged over fifty rounds, and kept at biy two vessels having the advantages of being un der way, possessing superior armaments and numbers, and finally out-manceuvring three ves sels, stand alone in. the annals of mercantile warfare. "Who iuhi R:d.n:m of I'vks." This in terrogative "portion of divine scripture" is il lustrated by an anecdote, related with most ef fective dryness by a friend of ours. An elderly gentleman, accustomed to "indulge," entered the bar room of an inn in tho pleasant city of 11 , on the Hudson, where sat a grave Friend toasting his toes by the fire. Lifting a pair of green spectacles upon his forehead, rub bing his inflamed eyes, and calling lor a glass of brandy toddy, he seated himself by the prat ; and as lie did so, he remarked to Uncle Broad brim that his "eyes were getting weaker und weaker, and that even spectacles did'nt seem to do 'em any good," "I'll tell thee, friend," repli ed the Quaker, "w hat I think. 1 think if thee was to wear the spectacles over thy month tor a tow months, thy eyes would get sound again." To keep preserves for years, bottle them up and place them on some conspicuous shelfla bel led "arsenic."

From the Boston Evening Gazette. ' TIIK MI.VKH'S llltlDK. TRANSLATED FROM THE FRENCH. "No shadow of decay Had touched those pule bright features, yet he wore A mien of other Hays, a garb of yore, Who could unfold that mystery Ml;S. llhMAN"-. In one of tho villages of the north of France in the midst of a population entirely occupied with the labors of the mines, dwelt Pierre and Margarctte. Pierre was the son of a miner. 1 1 is little feet could scarcely bear him when he ran to tho mines. He descended into them, anil by his playfulness and frolic lightened the labors of his futher. And after that, when the fair traces of children were etlaced by those of youth, Pierre became a good workman, and next to his father, it was ho who could best direct tho miners to their toil. He knew the placo where the laborer could strike with safety; he had wandered the sub terranean galleries, nnd fearless of the dark, he would examine gaily, and by .natural cause., the mysteries which affrighted his companions. Ono night when the father of Pierre wns re turning from a neighboring village lie heard a low moaning : he stopped, he searched the bush that skirted the sides of the road he was tra velling. What was his surprise ! an infant, covered with a few rags moved in the grass and lilted its little hands to Heaven as if implor- hoarse sound of its voice announced that either by chnncc or wickedness it had been tor some time abandoned to the pity of the passing tra veller. The miner's heart was softened at the unex pected sight. Ho thought of his son of his dear Pierre,and ho knelt down towards the little one. As if his words could comtort it he talked to it; he promised it his aid, and endeavoring to sooth it he gathered up the shreds that pro tected it from the cold air, he wrapped it in his leather apron, and carried it with him kissing it to quiet its sad moaning. "Wife, said he, as he opened the dor of his house "guess what I have brought you; Pro vidence has chosen us, of all the inhabitants of the village, to do good to one unfortunate, I am sure for 1 know your heart." For her only answer the mother of Pierre extended her hand towards her husband. Sho heard by what a strange chance a pretty little girl had entered the house ; she regard ed it as her own child. Thus it was that Mar garet was restored to life and home, she who had lost all, and seemed destined to heroine (he prey of the wild animals that ranged the woodj and fields. The two children grew up to together, nnj as they thought only of each other happines: they soon loved each other tenderly. To the names of brother and sitter succeeded thosy more dear. Their hearts were mingled oud they dreamed only of a happy future. lVrrtt asktd Margaret of his father for Ins bride. The good parents wished it. How did their young hearts beat when the futher of Pierre said to them fix upon a day to complete your happiness. And that was not a distant day, they were so much beloved, and merited it so well that the day appointed for their wedding was a festival for ull their neighbors. Thev left their work, the mines were deserted, the tables were spread, bouquets adorned the bosoms of tho girls and the coats of the yMing men. Alia, round were heard cries of joy, and the music ot instruments, regulated the movements of the dancers on the green. Iu the midst of the fete Pierre was seen to embrace his pretty bride. Then he said mys teriously to his young companions, Keep her here, now is tho tune for the surprise ! Now 1 will get the presents. He went away, smiling, placing hit finger on his mouth, as though to enjoin secrecy, und pasting round the house nppcared to take a crooked path which led to the old mines. They saw him no more. He did not return that night, he came not mi the following day. They searched for him, they called hint, they waited lor bun ! Three days, four days, eight days, a mouth, a year parsed away, and Pierre returned not. On the day of the wedding, aa soon as his long absence was perceived, the sports were suspended. The bride wept and rung her hands. Tho miners, led by the futher search ed through every passage in the mines leaving no pastage were a mnn could be, unexamined but nothing gave tlipm any hope of discover ing the remains of their companion, of their friend. Margaret oanic near to death ! She return ed to life to consecrate it to the futher and mo ther of Pierre. They had uo much to weep for, and the alu, but giatitude endowed her with and immediate parent of de.potiain.-JErrm.soi.. Vol. l--o. 3a--lVlioIo No, l5. supernatural courage. She took off her bou quet and her bridal wreath, and kissing them s;i id "I will wait his return." Sixty yearj after this terrible and singular adventure, many changes had taken place in the village. Margaret had closed the eyes of her benefac tors. Nearly all those that bad been present at her wedding had disappeared from the earth. Tho children who leaped for joy as they ac coinpaniod the brido hnd become old men. A new generation had arisen and tho recollection of the adventure of Pierre and of his disappear ance, existed only in those traditions, which passing from age to age furnish food for the re flections and dreams which superstition inspires in tho minds of tho unenlightened. They spoke of Pierre as of a supernatural he ing. Ho was accused of having made a com pact with evil spirits. During the cold season, when the winds chased the hoar fost through the air, and made the dry branches of the elms und the beeches crack or roaring in the chim neys, they seemed to resemble a melancholy groan, me oiu women pretenuea that it was Pierre who came to ask for prayers and a last asylum. They could hear his voice in the rumbling of the thunder storm when the snow had left the smiling fiiddn and tho sun ripened the grain, or tinged the vino leaves on the hills. In the heat of the summer when tho light vapor brightened in the air, they thought it was i. . . . . . ,- . of the soul of Pierre. The cry of the night bird, rustling of the leaves, the adder darting through the thick grass, the far off howl of tho wolf, all brought terror tn the heart of the villagers when they were obliged to quit their homes. The men at the sound of the ill omen hastened their steps knit their brows and casting unquiet looks a round them as if they thought that the cnld hand of Pierre was stretched over them and threatened their innocent ones. Pierre was every where. Prayers were ad dressed to him and wax tapers burned in honor of him. The terrefied imaginations of the vil lagers made them regard as one intent upon in juring them, the shade of him who during his tooBhort career had only thought of doing good to his fellow creatures. At length it happened after having exhaust ed all the veins of the mines, and all the old parts, it became necessary to dig new pits in another place. The proprietor enme Tpon the grounds and his arrival was the rejoicing. He was humane and beloved by all the miners. For four days they had labored ; the young ladies nnd the gay cavaliers, who had come with the proprietors to nssist in the festival of the ojM'inng of the mines, and who danced un der the spreading branches, had returned to the city ; none remained but the engineers and those intereited in the mines. On a sudden, a strange noise wns heard. It wns a low- murmuring likotlmt which announce the distant thunder storm. It was a cry of voi ces in distress. The ground trembled, the bells sounded loudly, every cord was in motion. He w ished to leap into a hnskct to go to the relief of the wretches whose death he thought inevitable, all had assembled, and the terrified miners were pale and trembling, cold drops of sweHt hung upon their brows. "What is the matter ! cried the proprietor as pale, an trembling as those animated peel res. " man ! an apparition ! a miracle ! Death!" Such were the exclamations that escaped from the mouths of whom fright made almost rcold and powerless. Soon, however, the proprietor was enabled to collect together a few words and formed an intelligible sentence out of all those exclama tions of terror. Iu endeavoring to open a communication be tween the new mines and old ones, the bilio rers bad discovered a place that wus less diffi cult to work than before. The stones and the earth did not form thick masses, and the strange substance whicli were found seemed to prove, (h it at some time not long previous, an immense caving iu of the earth had happened at this place. The labor was not hard. With a sin gle blow of the pick the miners brought dow n large quantities of earth. They had advanced e ' ' sonie distance ; all at once a portion which was unsjpiHirted fell down of itself; a gas rushed out al.d became a flame; and what was the sur- , , ..,.1. pr.se of the workmen when by the brightness of this sudden light, they saw descend on this strange couch, a young man, who seemed to be asleep. His brow is calm, lis cheeks fresh and even roy, but his mouth and ryes are motionless, .nstead of approaching him instead of endea- voring to assist him, tor perhaps ne neeiien as sistance, the miners fled with precipitation from thin unexpected apparition. Fear, during the bhoit space they had to traverse to join their comrades, had already caused them to exagge rate their story. I'KICKS or AIVi:TI TSIKU.

It was not a man, it was a spirit which had appeared to them in the midst of thunder and lightning ; it was the spirit of the mines ! His form was collossal. They hnd seen him rise up nnd stretch forth his fearful arm. The proprietor listened to these talcs of (er ror, his face beenmc calm. He cast a look s round him. The miners had all left the mine and their eyes were fixed en him ; all in a fright seemed to await his discieion what course to pursue. "To the mino !" After bavin spoken in a low voice to tho engineers and friends who sur rounded him, he rushed forward. Soon the truth was known, the bright light of day explained this extraordinary scene. They brought up and placed upon the grass plot which surrounded the entrance to the pit the cold and damp body of a young man. His clothing indicated other times and other fash ions. It was tasteful and even seemed ta havo been worn on some festive occasion. A small box wns dug out near tho body which on being opened was found to contain jewels, a gold cross, a chain, a medallion on which a cy pher was engraved, but time had blackened these tokens which love had perhaps destined for some adored mistress. All tho villagers ran to the scene, nud while? the authorities of the village were bst in con jectures, each inhabitant sought in his memory for somo means of arriving at the truth, but all in vain. "Margaret !" cried a young girl, with a voice which indicated astonishment nt the eight of un . -a ........ rn oirttt'lf '. wl l. a immense circle which awaited with anxiety the explanation of the mystery. Room for Margaret," said many of the youn people at once. And the old woman approached where the authorities and the proprietor were assembled; She paid no attention to the crowd that sur rounded her, anu scarcely thanked those w l o opened for her a passage. Her face, ordinarily pale, had become very bright, her eyes were flashing, and it could be seen that something; strange was passing through her mind. She pushed aside the proprietor, who wash" fore her, with a violent and convulsive move ment. Sho stooped down, and fell upon her knees by the side of the body. "Pierre !" cried she, and her feeble liDtid", grown thin with age, were passed over the face of the dead man. She parts the damp hair, she implants a kits upon the forehead which for sixty years had been buried in the earth, nnd which owed to this pre mature burial the appearance of youth on a bo dy which age would have bent and wrinkled. "It is Tierre !" cried she, it is the friend of my childhood, it is my betrothed;" nnd tears, w hich seemed now of joy, and now of grief, in undated her faded cheeks, "I have waited for thee. Oh, I could not have died without em bracing thee for the last time. They tried to lend her away, to tear her from the horrid spectacle on which she gazed with a joy, which weakened her strength, which kil led her ; but in vain. She clung to the body of Pierre, she pressed it in her feeble anna. She wished to die upon that heart which she could not reanimate, but which in lite had beat for her alone. Then all those mysteries were explained. Poor Pierre ! ho had wished tj surprise his betrothed, and had doubtless, hid den the presents which he had worked. How horrible must have been his long agony ! What a frightful end ! His thoughts perhaps carried him back to the sports that were going on so near him to tho side of his anxious bride, of h.s father and mother! And he could see them no more, his last groans could not be hcaid ; he was suflec'jted, full of life and ftrcngth, beneath a whole mountain ot eirth ! Margaret had well suid "Pierre, I shall atvsit thy return;" for she did not survive the vio lent emotions vhi;h she t'x;ericnccd. She passed awiy murmuring the name of Pierre. But doubtless when she made that vow she did not expeci that her bridal bed would be the c dj bier, she did not think that the icy hand cf her lover would be placed in her only when slid had ceased to live.
