It was a schooner that the Commodore eemmauded, but she was a heavy cne, well armc'ii ana nianne.i ; and tr.: t sue carried the true yaukeo '"init' UOCKS, the enemy had recoived from them rather too many proofs. . On thw morning of the Sti of August, a messenger was sent down from Peh'.tst with the intelligence thrit the Pritish i'rigate was coaiius from Cu::tine to take him. Tucker knew that the. i'rltl.-h ii'orod him. na -l- tlmt Sir s'l.- Juiiu Sneibicvkc Lad oli'ered :i lirri amount iT his capture. YVhea the Coui movlore received ths iutelliircnce, his ve? sel was lying at one of the low wharves where he would have to wait two two hours for the tide to set him off, but lie hastened to have cvervtmns prepared pn l to -ret her iY :i as soon a;; po.- sibie, for 1 4. had no desire to moot the fri 'ate. The schooner's keel was just cleared from the mud. and one of the men had been scut upon the wharf to cast elf the bowline, when a wagon drawn by one hor;-e came rattling down to the shore. The driver, a rough looking countryman, got nut upon the wharf, and then assisted a middle-aged woman from the vehicle. The lady's lirst inquiry was for Commo dore Tucker. He was pointed out to her, and she stepped upon tne schooner's deck, and approached him. 'Commodore." she asked, "when do you sail from here ?" 'Wo'Sail right off, as soon a.? possible, madam." "Oh, then I know 30U will be kind to 1110," urged the lady, i:i persuasive tones. "My poor husband died yesterday, and I wish to c.nry his corpse to AYicassot, vivrf wo ! 'in" anil woer.i :v, parents will take care of it. "Put, my good woman Wic-isset." I shan't go to "if you will only land n:c at the mouth cf the Sheepscct, I will ask no more. I can easily find a boat there to take me up." "Where is the body?" asked Tucker. "In the wagon." returned the lady, at the s.ime time raising the corner of he: shawl to wipe away the gathering tears. "I have a sum nf money with me, and you shall be paid for the trouble." "Tut, tut, woman : if 1 accommodate ! you there won't be any pay about it." i. lie kind-hearted old Cummod .re was not the man to refuse a favor, and though he liked not the bother of taking the woman and her strange accompaniment on board, yet he could not refuse. When she thanked him with many tears in her eyes. Some of the men were sent upon the w harf to bring the body on board. A long buffalo robe was lilted off by the man who drove the wagon, and beneath it ap- pearcd a neat black couin. Some were passed by the seamen a wcre putting the coffin on board. v.-orus wh went to show how plainly the affair did not exactly suit them.

Inlessthan half an hour the schooner was cleared from the wharf, and standing out. from the bay. The wind was light from the eastward, but Tucker Ijad no fear of the frigate, now that he was once out of the bay. la the evening the lady passenger came on deck, and the Commodore as sured her that he should be able to land her early the next morning. She expres sed her gratitude and satisfaction, and re marked that before she retired she would like to see that her husband's corpse was safe. This was of course granted, and one of the men lifted off the hatch that she might go down into the hold. "I declare," muttered Daniel Carter, an old sailor, who wa.s standing at the wheel, ;'sho takes on. xlralfullv."- , '; Yes, poor thing," said Tucker, as he heard her sobs and groans. 'D'ye notice what'n eye she's got?" continued Carter. "No," said Tucker, "only 'twas swollen with tears." "31' eyes but they shone, though, when she stood looking there at the compass!" Tucker smiled at the man's quaint ear nestness, and w ithout further remark went i . i uown to tnc cabin. Yrhen the woman came up from the hold, she looked about the deei of the schooner for a few momei.ts, and then went aft. There was something in her counte nance that puzzled Carter, lie had been one of those who objected to the couin be ing brought on board, and hence he was not predisposed to look very favorably on its owner. The woman's eye ran over the schooner's deck with a strange quickness, and Carter eyed her sharply. Sor n she went f - the tafTrnil and, looked ever at tl:o sKm ! .1. :in. then she came atui tood by the binnacle again. "Look out, or you'll jibe the boom," uttered the passenger. "Thank'ee, ma'am," said Dan. "Ila. hold on why, bless my soul, there's a big spider on your hair oh, not there here. Pil -ugh !" This ejaculation Dan made as lie seemed to pull something from the woman',- hair, which he threw upon the deck with the "ugh !" above mentioned. Shortly after, the passenger went below, and ere long Tucker came on deck. 'Commodore," said Carter, with a re markable degree of earnestness in his manner, "i; the ole 'oman turned in V "I rather think to,' said Tucker, look- nig at iiie compass. "L ok out, Carter ! southwid of 3'our course." Carter started, and found that the main sail was shivcrintr. lie ave the helm a couple of spokes a port, and then cast I113 eyes again upon the woman, whose fea tures were ligiited by the binnacle lamp. "Plow me, so I am," said the man, bringing th" helm sharply aport ; "but, say, didn't ye notice anythjng peculiar about that of ! :an '" "Why, Ddo, vou seem greatly intercst ed about her." "So I am, Commodore, and so I about the coffin, too. Wouldn't it am be well for you and I to overhaul it ?" "Pshaw, you are as scared as a child iu a graveyard." "No, net a bit. Just hark a bit. That 'oman ain't no 'oman." The Commodore pronounced the name of his Satanic Majesty in the most emphat ic manner. "Its the trutn, Commodore I can swear to it. I purtended there was a hair, am rubbed my hand sn er on her agin her face. Py Sam Hyde, if it wasn't as rough and bearded as a holystone. You see, as how she told me I'd let the boom jibe if I didn't look out. I know'd there was no 'oman there, and so I tried hor. Call somebody to the wheel, and let's go and look at the colli n." The Commodore was wonder-struck by what ho had heard, but, what he was, he sat coolly to thinking. In a few min utes li3 called one of the men aft to re lieve Carter, and then he went down to look after his passenger. The latter had turned in, and seemed to be sleeping. Tucker returned and took Carter to one c,',lo "No noise now, Carter ; follow mo as though nothing had happened." -Sartin." The two approached the main hatch and stooped to raise it. when Dan's hand touched a small ball that seemed to have been pinned up under the after break of the hatch. "It's a ball of twine," said he. "Don't touch it, but run and get a lan tern," replied Tucker. Carter sprang to obey, and when he re turned, a number of men had gathered about the ?pt. The hatch was, riisel, and (he Coioioodere carefully pukvi up the ball of twine, and found that il v..;:, made fast to something below.

Tim returned with a Stout kllift- and the Commodore Ect to work. He the worked very carefully, however, at the ! same time keeping a bright lookout for the string. At length the screws were out and the lid carefully lifted from its place. "Great God in heaven !" burst from the lips of the Commodore. "Py Sam Hyde !" dropped like a thun derclap from the tongue of youner Dan. "God bless you, Dan I" said the Com modore. "I caoic'd it r uttered Dan. The two men stood for a moment and gazed into the coffin. There was no dead man there, but in place thereof there was material for the death of a score. The cofun was filled with gunpowder and pitch wood. Upon a light framework in the center were arranged four pistols, all cocked, and the string entering the coffin from without communicated with the trig ger of each. The first movement of the Commodore was tcall for water, and when it was bru-ugjn'ia dashed Ttliree or four buckets' fud into the infernal contrlvanon. and then he breathed more freely. "No, no," he uttered, as he leaped from tie hold. "No, no my men. Do noth ing rashly. Let mo go into the cabin 'first. YTou may follow me." Commodore Tucker strode into the cab in, walked up to the bunk where his pas senger lay, and grasping hold of the female dress, he dragged its wearer upon the floor. There was a sharp res'stance, and the pas senger drew a pistol, but it was quickly knocked away the gown wa,s torn off, and a man came forth from the remnants of calico and linen. The feiiow was assured that his whole plot had been discovered. At length he owned that it had been his plan to turn out in the course cf the night, and get hold cf the ball of twine, 'which he had left in a convenient place. He then in tended to have gone aft, carefully un winding the string as he went along; then to have got into the boat, cut the falls, and when the boat fell into the water, he would have pulled smartly upon the twine. "And I think you know," he continued with a wicked look, "what would have fol lowed. 1 shouldn't have been noticed in the fuss Id have got out of the way with the boat, and vou'd all have been in the next world in short order. And all I can stay is that I'm sorry I didn't do it." It was with difiiculty the Commodore prevented his men killing the vilain on the spot. He proved to be one of the en emy's officers, and he was to have a heavy reward if he succeeded in destroying the Commodore and his crew. The prisoner was carried on deck and lashee1 to the main rigging, where he was " to- ;.v"rioi n-fi th? ve-.rl cot into port. V hat a noma aeuui Liac vm... inent for us," said Carter. "Yes, he did," said Tucker, with a shudder. He be longs to the same gang that's been robbiu' aud burnin' the poor folks' houses on the Eastern coast," said one of the men. "Yes, said the Commodore, v.'ith a nervous twitch of the muscles about his mouth. A bit tor curse from the prisoner here broke upon the air, and with a clutched fist the Commodore went below. In the morning, when Tucker came on Sii.ttt.1i t" c; m K-trhf. nr.rin the star- board bow, bat when he looked for prisoner, he was gone. the "Carter, where's the villain I lashed here last night ?" "I'm sure I don't know where he is, Commodore. Perhaps he jumped over board." The eld Commodore looked sternly in Carter's eyes, and he saw a twinkle of sat isfaction gleaming there. He hesitated a moment then he turned away, and mut tered to himself, "Well, well I can't blame them. If the murderous villain's gone to death, he's only met a fate which he richly deserved. Petter far be it for him than that my noble crew were all iu the ocean's cold erave." A Companion of TTasIilngton. The Sa iters' Magazine contains the fol lowing interesting item: Captain John Webster, who has reached the advanced age of 101 years, whs born in Dublin in 17C3, and came to this country in 1793. Soon after his arrival he was apprenticed in Georgetown to -the- firm-of-Noble & Crabtroe, shipowners and chandlers. After serving his time he became captain of a vessel, and followed the sea for seventy five years. He was a schoolmate of both John and Charles Wesley, and their friend for years; is a strict follower of Wesley still, and speaks of him with the greatest affection. Having some business with the family he is visiting, I called to see him, and in answer to my ring he came to the door himself. This'bcing the first time I had seen him, imagine my surprise when he replied, to my question of "How old arc you?" "One hundred and four years." He must have noticed the strange look my fVifn Lnrt for cm ilin'T. he said, "I have my proofs in black and white. It seem- ed to me as if some grave had given up its dead, and for some minutes I could do no more than stare the old man in tne iace . t t . . . -I 1 j and mutter. "Can it be . oaia ne l knew Daniel Webster well; was very mti- . mate with him ; have walked arm-in-arm with him manv a time : have conversed with Washington time and again. My wife died five years asro, aged, ninety-eight vears. Mv eldest son is over seventy-four years old, and I have one daughter living in this city over sixty." The old gentle man is in excellent spirits, and does not Kppin tn tiro of conversation. He has his second sight, and can read writing if fine- ly written, as well as the papers, without the aid of spectacles. His homo is at the Sailors' Snug Harbor, from which place he comes unattended to visit his friends iu the city. To have seen this old man and talk with him, seems to give one a new lease of life to fill one with noble purposes, so that one's eud may be like this uoblo follower of the blaster to whose praiso ho gives all the moments of his latest years. Suffrage In Pennsylvania. In 1C82 William Pena promulgated the Frame of Government of Pennsylvania, under authority of the charter grauted him by King Charles II. Iu this docu ment the right of suffrage was given. n-UKnui. restriction, to the freemen of said province. In 1701 Penn granted what is known as the Charter of Privileges. Py this instru ment the right of suffrage was broadly given to the freemen of each respective county. The firsi constitution of Pennsylvania was adopted in 177G. The convention that framed this instrument was presided over by Benjamin Franklin. It gave the right of suffrage to every freeman of the full age of twenty-one years. The men of the Involution, while asserting their owu rights and liberty against proscription, were careful to staud fast by the cardinal idea of the political equality of all men. In 1700 a new Constitution was framed. Thomas Mifflin presided over the conven tion that made it. This instrument gave the right to vote to evert freeman over the age of twenty-cne year3. In 1S39 the Constitution was revised. John Sargeant presided over the conven tion. The basis of suffrage was changed so as to include only every white ireeman of the age of twenty-one years. For one hundred and fifty-six year3, black men, if black they were, voted in Pennsj'lvania, on precisely the same con dition as ivhite men. None of the evils now predicted cf black suffrage were ex perienced. Neither the luenai nor social equality of the two races wa.s thereby es tablished. Amalgamation, either through matrimony or without, was not encouraged. Not a black man was made Governor or Legislator. Social order was not subvert ed. The Government was not made by white men, for white men, but by all men, for the benefit of all. better understanumo; of the whole matter. ...i- t : i i ii, that in 1S33 a case was brought before the courts of this Commonwealth to test the point whether a native-born black man, not a slave, was a freeman, according to the true intent and meaning of the Con stitution of 1790. The design was, by a judicial decision, to deprive the blacks of the right of suffrage, which they had en joyed from 1GS2. All the points were learnedly and ingeniously argued; and at the Supreme Ccurt, Chief J ustice Gibson pronouncing the opinion, in conformity to the pro-slavery fanaticism and blindness which then prevailed, solemnly decided that a black man could by no possibility be regarded as a freeman, within the mean ing of the Constitution. The Convention that framed the existing Constition was in session when this judgment was rendered, and it made haste, under the leadership of Mr. George W. Woodward and other members of kindred sentiments, to insert the word white, as qualifying freemen, in the draft of the organic law they framed. An Isiignast Vino in. Ihe Shasta Courier relates the following: We heard a good joke on a resident of Dog Creek the other day. The party re ferred to is a bachelor and lives on the wagon road. A few days ago an emi grant wagon trom Oregon came along and camped near our friend's place. The head of the family soon made himself ac quainted with the proprietor of the prem ises, and asked him why he didn't havo a woman to keep house for him. The answer was that he intended to marry just as soon as be could find a woman willing to enter into the bonds of matri mony. The Oregonian remarked that he could find him a partner if he would take her. The bachelor said that was right into his hand, and ihe emigrant invited him to his camp. The Oregonian called up a bouncing damsel of about tweny years, and inform ed her that the-gentleman accompanying him was "on the marry." and wa3 wil ling to take her for better or for worse. The damsel, delighted with the prospect, advanced, and seizing her fii-rnd by the hand, assured hitn that she was .lad to see him and was ready to marry him at the "drop of a hat," while the old lady hastened up to congratulate her 'darter" on her good luck. . Surprised and alarmed at the serious turn matters had taken, our friend, who is constitutionally opposed to the institution of matrimony, endeavored to explain, by saying that he was only joking and did not want to marry. At this the Orepon ian became indignant, and the would-be bride told her father to take hi rifle and "drap the varmint in his tracks." At this affectionate suggestion the bachelor left for his fortifications, the last thing he heard being the voice of the old lady con soling her "darter" with the remaik that it was best to "let the bilk go."

Half the energy dis played in keeping ahead that is required to catch up when behind will save credit give more time to business, and add to" the profit and reputation of your word. Honor,jour engagements. If you promise to meet a man, or do a certain thing at a certain moment, be ready at the appointed lime. If you have work to do, do it at once, cheerfully, and therefore more speed ily and correctly. If you go out on busi ness, attend promptly to the matter on hand, and then as promptly go about your own business. Do not f.top to tell stories in business hours. If you have a place of business, be found there when wanted. No man can get rioh sitting round stores and saloons. Never "fool" on business raaucia. If you have to labor for a living, remember that one hour in the morning is better than two at night. If you employ others, be en hand to see that they attend to their duties; and to direct with regularity, promptness and liberality. Do not meddle with any business you know nothingof. Never buv any article simply because the man tha"t sells it will take it out in trade. Trado is money. Time is money. A good busi ness habit and reputation is always mon ey. Make your place of business pleasant and attractne ; then stay there to wait on customers. Never use quick wcrds, or allow your self to make hasty or ungcntlemanly re marks, to those in your employ; fjr to do so lessens their respect for you and for your influence over them. Help yourself, and others will help you. Pe 'faithful over the interests confided o your keeping, and all in gobd time your responsibilities will be increased. Do not be iu too great haste to get rich. Do not build until you have arranged and laid a good foundation. Do not as you hope to work for success spend time iu idleness. If time is your own, business will suffer if you do. If it is given to another for pay, it belongs to him, and you have no more right to steal that than to steal money. Pe obliging. Strive to avoid harsh words or personalities. Do not kick every stone in the path; moro miles can be made in a day by going stead ily ou than by stopping to kick. Pay as you go.

An low a paper of a recent date, gives the particus lars of a romantic story which border somewhat on the marvelous. Years ago a Pennsylvania farmer loved and married a charming young girl that lived near him. After the marriage time passed on ; soon the farmer contracted a great taste for liquor, which frequently got the best of him. His wife remonstrated with him, which on one occasion ended by the hus band stabbing her with a butcher knife. He left precipitately, supposing he had killed her, and hid himself in the West, where in a few years he became a pro?"., perous and wealthy merchant.
