But few readers ever think of tho labors and caro devolving upon an editor. Captain Marryatt most truly siys : I know how a periodical will wear dowirono's cxistance. In itself it appears nothing ; the labor is not manifest ; nor is it in labor, it is the continual attention it requires. Your life becomes, as it were, tho publication. Ono day's paper is no sooner corrected and printed than on comes anoth er. It is tho stone Sisyphus, and endless repetition of toil and constant weight upon the intellect and spirits, and demanding all the exertions of your faculties, at the name time you are compelled to the severest drudgory. To write for a paper is very well, but to edit one is to condemn yourself to slavery. Tho lutcst fashion of bonnets is said to be a tow string with a glass bead upon the top of the head.

SMITH, ' Tho incident about to be rolatod is one of many similar ones which occurred dur ing tho early settlement of America. Those . . . . ... i 1.. who sought a home in tne savage wuus, which then oovered the land, woddod them- selves to a life of peril and hardship. The dangers which continually threatened theni called forth all tho heroic qualities of thoir naturo, and their lives were marked by many a lofty deed of daring- and devotion. Such deeds should not sink into oblivion, for thoy belong to tho history of our coun try, and as such, should be recorded and remembered. m We would present a picture to tho imag ination of tho reader. Tbero is a broad and . beautiful stream, with its deep, still waters, flowing on between banks aovercd by luxuriant foliage ; and its bright surface dotted here and there, with fairy little isles, where graceful shrubs and fragrant flowers bud and blossom undisturbed in wild and 'oncly loveliness. Bright-plumed-birds, of many varitics, aro winging their way over the quiet water, and the surrounding scene echoes with their tuneful minstrelsy. On tho borders of tho river, at the edge of a forest that stretches fur away over hill and dale, stands tho rude but picturesqtio dwell ing of a backwoodsman ; with the blue smoke curling up from its lowly roof, and its humblo walls glunoing out from the green foliage that surrounds tbem. Thore are somo indications of taste and refinement near the woodman's home, which gave a cheerful appcarauce to that otherwise wild and lovely scene. A graceful vine curtains tho lowly window, and many bright flowers, uatives of a distant soil, shed their grateful perfume around. Near the door hangs a cage, containing a rare and beautiful bird, whoso song of gladness breaks sweetly upon the stillness of that solitary place. On a low seat at tho entrance of tho dwelling, is seen a young woman, caressing an infant, Sho has lost tho blooming love liness of early youth her cheek is pale, ami her brow wears that thoughtful expres sion which is imprinted by tho touch of care ; yet she is still beautiful in form and feature, and none may look upon her with out admiration. As she bends over the child in her arms, her eye Gils with that unutterable tenderness and love which are only seen in tho eye of a mother and which make the face of a beautiful woman almost augelic. Now and then she turns from the child, to bend an anxious glance towards the forest, as if she watched for the ap proach of some one from that direction. She is momentarily expecting her husband. He left his homo at morn ; the hour ap pointed for his return had passed away ; the shadows of tho trees are lengthening in the rays of the setting sun, and yet he comes not The fond wife begins to tremble for his safety a fearful foreboding of evil steals over her mind, and the dark dread of some approaching calamity haunts her imagina tion. She has reason to fear; for that portion of country was, at this time, the theatre of many a tragic scene. Some times tho wood man, in penetrating too fur into tho path less recesses of tho forest, lost his way, and wandering for days in the dreary wilderness, suffering many- miseries, and perishing at last by tho pangs of hunger. Sometimes tho wily red man, who yet lirked about lonely wilds, entrapped the whito hunter, and, from a spirit of revenge, or the thirst for blood, paorificed his victimnrith the most wanton and barbarous cruelty. As (he anxious wife thought of these things, her fears and forebodings became almost insupportuble. Hushing the infant to sleep, she carried it into the dwelling, and deposited it in his cradle-bed. She then hastened forth again, and wandered along the path that led to the forest, anxi ously looking forward the while for her hus band. She walked onward for somo time, fondly hoping to see the object of her search, but her hopes were vain, aud sending one more searching glance, around, and seeing nothing but the gloomy shadows of- the trees, she turned with a heavy heart to re trace her steps. As she was proceeding homowsrd, a sudden fear for her child, whom she hud left alone, crowed her mind, and caused her to hasten forward. Draw ing nearer to the dwolling, this fear became so intense, that it amounted almost to a conviction of some terrible calamity. Fly ing, rather than walking, she searched the houe, and sprang to the' cradle it was empty, and the child nowhere to be seen! With frantic eagerness she rushed to the back door of the dwelling, which she had left cloned, and which sho now found was open. She was just in time to see a party of Indians making rapidly to the woods. Her heart whispered the fearful assur ance that they bore away her treasure. Here was a trying situation for n timid and help less woman her husband afar off perhaps in peril her child her first born, and only one, torn away by the rude band of a savage dread night approaching, and no earthly arm to aid I - Without pausing for reflection, the moth er flew along the jnth which the Indians had taken. Now and then she eaught a glimpse of their forms as they moved rap idly through the trees, but as the twilight deepened and surrounding objects became more indistinct, even that slight comfort was denied her, and she traced bar gloomy pathway without knowing whether or not it would bring her nearer the object of her pursuit-. Yet sbs paused not a moment in indecision, but bastcned eaward through , a. . ,d' .. . the increasing darkness, unconscious of the uncertainty of her search, and the wildness of her expedition. She had but one thought ono hope ; and that was to bo near her child to save it, if it could be saved, or perish with it, if perish it must Strorfg in this determination, sho pushed forward, thoughtless of fatigue, and fearless of peril. As the night advanced, the wind rose aud sighed among tho trees with a mournful and heart-chilling sound. Tho stars, tbq,t hud hitherto shed a faint light through the branches, were now veiled in black clouds, that seemed to presage a storm ; and ever and anon tho shrill creaking of a night-bird, or tho prolonged .howl of some beast of prey, was borne to the ear of the unhappy wandorer, waking fearful thoughts, and warning her of hor dangers by which sho was surrounded. Those who have nerer roamed in a forost at midnight, can scarcely realiso how much that is terrifying is connected with suoh a journey. At one time, tho howl of the hungry waif .will burst so suddenly and clearly on the ear that we can scarcely per suade ourselves the monster is not close at our side at another, the falling of a decay ed branch will produce such a loud and fear ful sound, that we deem it tho fatal plunge Which must doom us . to destruction. Now the wind will come with a fitful and moan ing eadence, so like tho human voice, that we for an instant, believe it tho wail of an agonized being and again it will sweep by with a rushing sound like a troop of en raged monsters bent on a mission of death. Sometime an unseen, low-drooping branch will softly touoh the shoulder, congealing the warm current of life with the idoa that a spectral hand has suddenly arrested our progress; and again a black and blasted tree, with one or two sere branches protud ing from its sidcjaill, for an instant still the pulsation of the heart, as we behold in it a frightful phantom, stretching' forth its arms to grasp our shrinking forms. All this, and inorc.trriust ono feel and. fear Iri a lonely midnifjit pilgrimage thrmighlr?i the forest : and all this the mothct eiWurcd as she pursued her almost hopeless (pter prize. She had traveled far, very fur, for the darkness of night, and the intricacies of the wood, had scarcely lessened the spee 1 with which she commenced her walk, aud she had been many hours on tho way. Weariness was beginning to overcome her hope was departing from her heart, and despair chilliug all her energies, when sho discovered afar off through the trees, a light It was but a feeble glimmer, yet oh I how it irradiated the path of tho wanderer. The instant sho beheld it, hope sprang back to her heart, and strength invigorated her frame. That faint and far off ray seemed tho light of returning happiness, and she watched it as eagerly as the mariner watch es the star which guides him over ocean's stormy waves. Sho now hastened onward with redoubled energy, and though her steps pometimcs faltered, and her lieart sunk within her, as the light disappeared behind somo intervening object, she still kept her eye steadily in tho direction of tho beacon, and soon gained a position where it shone brightly before her, and she could approach without loosing sight of it again; As she drew near, she gazed upon the scene which that light revealed, with mingled feelings of astonishment, hope and fear.. There was a large fire built of the dried branches of trees, and around it lay the dusky forms of five or six Indians, reposing upon the ground; Their appearance was savage in the extreme ; each with his paint ed feathers lighted by the fitful glare of tho fire, and his tomahawk and scalping knife gleaming at his side. Near them were im plements of hunting, and around the fire lay scattered bones and fragments of a re cent rude repast. The whole soeno was cal culated to strike terror into the heart of the delicate being who gazed upon it But she scarcely saw the rude savages or their implements of death, for her whole soul was absorbed in contemplating a por tion of tho scene which we have not yet de scribed, and which riveted her attention with a thrilling and magic power. Bound to a tree, was the form of her husband ; and at his feet on the cold ground, hy her child. Tho father's face was pale, and stained with blood j the infant's face was covered by its dress, and its form was motionless as if chilled by tho cold hand of death. ' How felt the fond wife and mother when that sight of horror mot her eyes? Repressing by a mighty effort the shriek of agony that rose to her lips and conquering, by the strength of a heroic soul, the almost irre sistible desire she felt to rush forward, and clasp those dear ones to her gybing heart, she stood gazing upon the scene with feel ings which eannot be described. She saw with a throb of sudden joy, that her hus band lived, but her heart grew cold again as she watched the motionless form of her child. She longed to fly to its side, and as certain the truth, for the suspense tbjtt preyed upon her spirits were terriblo, but again her resolute mind restrained her, and she began to deliberate upon the situation of her husband, and devise means for re leasing him. The vivid light east by the fire on all things near it, enabled the wife to note the scene distinctly. She saw, with a thank ful heart, that the savages all slept, and that she could reach the side of her hus band without passing near enough1 to awake them ; but she sstw that be was bound by sQog cords, which she oould riot hope, in berwearied state to unfasten', and she look- ad about for something to aerer. them. there wasaothingsave the knaves whioh 1 WEDNESDAY, FEB. 27, 1867, the Indians wore at thoir sides. . Looking more intently, she saw that ono of these had sHppodrom its place, and lay on the ground by its owner, so near, that his hand almost touched the hilt A pang of in tonse fear shot through hor frame, when she thought of approaching so oloso to the terrifio form of the savage, but another look upon tho pale face of tho pnsonor, re assured hor, and she determined to rescue him, or perish in the attempt She oould not approaoh the Indians without revealing herself to the eyes of her husband, and she feared, in that case, an exclamation of sur prise would follow her appearance, and rouse tho foe from their slumber. After pondering a moment upon tho best mode of proceeding, she determined to steal softly to the back of the tree, place her haud upon the lip of the captive, whispor a few words of explanation; and implore him, not by the slightest murmur, to frustrate her plans. With a throbbing heart, she commenced her perilous undertaking. Noiselessly she made her way to the tree, and accomplished her purpose. There was no time to delay, yet ono instant the mother turned to look upon her child, yearning to clasp ft to her bosom, but not daring to lift the cloth whioh concealed its features, and assure herself whether or not it lived. A little while before, she would have given worlds to be ablo to do this, but now she felt that to behold it wrapped in the slumber of death would unnerve her arm, and rendor her unfit for the further prosecution of her trying task. With a firmness that would have done honor to a stoic, sho conquered tho promptings of natural love, and hastened away. With a step as noiseless as the fall ing dew, she glided towards the slumbering savages; as she drew near, her frame trem blod so violently, she couldfllcarcely support herself; and when she put forth hor hand to take the knife, the beating of heart was. so audible, sho feared it would awake a the sleepers, and shopressod liar hand soiul-i tohtill its tumultuous throb lii-nli. teQblc, install tfthi-g thought top eyes of if Indian opened, glared upon her'with'a fierce and malignant expression ; but this was mere fancy for he still slept, and tho next moment sho was gliding away with the knife firmly grasped in her hand. With a fow rapid strokes she liberated her husband, and then bent down and uncover ed the child. To her unspeakable joy, she found it in a slumber as sweet and peaceful as though it had been hushed to rest upon its mother's bosom. With a prayer of gratitude upon her lips, sho lifted it from its resting-place, turned to her companion, and motioned the way to their homo. With rapid and noise less steps they hurried away, speeding on ward with the tremulous yet hopeful hearts; Not a moment did the fond mother spare to caress bcr infant not a word did the utter to greet her husband; The spell of a new found uncertain happiness had settled upon her spirit, and she feared to break its thrill ing cliarm. For a time they traveled thus in silence and darkness; moving as near as they could judge, in the direction of their home, and anxious to bo further, still further away from their enemies; At length weari ness compellod them to rest awhile, and, as the dawning day began to shed a trembling light abroad, they crept into a thicket and sought repose. The beams of tho rising sun lighted tho wanderers on their homeward pathway ; and when that sun was sinking to report, its parting rays fell calmly over the woodman's humblo home, revealing a sccno of bliss such as seldom visit the abode of man. How radiant with greatful joy was the face of the fond mother, as sho clasped her recov ered treasure closer to her bosom ; how full of admiring love was the eye of the rescued husband, as it rested upon its fair preserver ; and oh I how warm and fervent was the prayer, breathed in that hour of safety bear ing up to Heaven tho deep devotion of thankful and happy hearts. A Yankee In Italy. The Rome correspondent, of tho Boston Pwt is responsible for the following: On my way to Rome t stopped at Terni for a couple of days. This town is quaint, old, and dirty. The houses are bluck and the people squalid. The streets are as black as mud ajanmake thorn; and not much wider than tBe passages through a good-sized brick-kiln. Altogether,, the place gives one the impression of a large number of houses that have drifted into the same locality, per hap i as tho result of a flood, and have stuck there hard and fast There is a hotel with a stupendous and over-powering name on the outside, and general misery and annoy ance inside. No one should ever stay in Terni any lon ger than is necessary to see its famous water falL This is about four miles from its center and well repays a visit Byron (who by the way, in his progiess towards Rome did up in a poetical way every Trrominent and at tractive object on the road, just as he accus ed Scott of starting from Edinburgh to London with the idea of "doing" in Terse all tho gentlemon's country seats he met with,) Byron speaks of Terni with great ad miration,' and jn fact rather overdoes that cataract. Bot still it is worth B day's deten tion, even when one is at the gates of Rome and is certainly Tory beautiful - On my arrival I found one solitary stran ger sit the inn, and he was a Yankee, E4 was traveling with a small carpet bag and a copy of Harper's guide booki wUoh jatter, by the way, is about as prontewe iot a jm- Mftaan tourist as the CoriiXitatwn of toe VmtodjStatee, or tie Wstajajstef Ama- bly's shorter catechism would be.

Ho had a happy faculty for murdering the simplest expressions, and could not call for a beefsteak, though this is the same in every tongue in the world. His first salutation to me was peculiar, and might be called unique, "Much acquainted here in the city, stranger? In spite of their oddity these words bore certain appearance of familiarity that remind ed me of home, I informed him that my acquaintance in that elegant and refined me tropolis was quite limited, and in fact should not have stopped there at all except to see the waterfall. " Wal, I did see some thing in the guido-book about a fall," was tho reply, "but I thought I wouldn't foot it out there." I asked him why ho bad re mained so long then in such an uncomforta ble and disagrcoable place.

I want them boots." And so it went on to the intense aggravation of all parties except myself, whom it greatly amused. Communicated. Young Sam on Gosslpln'. I'ze a sun uv old Sam and old Mrs. Sam my muther. Quess I wus a partnership consarn, cause I had to call old Sum daddy, and old Mrs. Sam mammy, and cause they both claimed their darlin little Sammy, as they used to call me, but I never liked that name mutch, so I oallod rnmlt yoxng Sx.u. Daddy and mammy kept up sayen I wus bound to be a shinen, a brillunt, and a daz zlen lite, to this dark and benited wurld uv ourn, so I thout may be I wus. Altho dad dy never kecrd how much I talked tu other pcple about their rong doens, he never would let me say a word tu mammy about hern; I guess it was causo daddy never thout mammy dun entry thing rong. But I wus uv that bent of mind, that when I herd cny peplos talkcn about every bodies biz ncss but their own, whether mammy wus mixed in with urn or not, I oilers thout it wusn't the baro dudle. And so one time after mammy had been talken tu daddy about every bodies bizness and after mammy had been talken about all the boys that boed the gals, and about all the boys that didn't boo the gals, and about all the gals that had boes, and about all the gals that didn't have boes, s:d 1, (forgotten about daddy's bein present) tis a pitty every boddie wouldn't mind every bod dies own bizness, and let tho boys go and see the gals and say noboddie to notbin about ; cause mammy, sed I, you told mo that daddy -.(that wus enuff fur daddy) he jumped up and started at hizsun and before 1 oould make three winks he brout the flat ut his hand in contact with the butt ur biz sun's ear ; so I down on the floor and com menced rollen over and over, woll I kount ed till I got about three times over, after when I got kinder dizzie and that I'd leave off counten, so you see I duzn't know how long I kept up my rollon ; guess I kept on rollen till I rolled into bed ; cause the first thing I knowed wus, I wus in bed and mam my wus throwen cold water in my face when I opened my eyes and finished snyen,) came tu Bee you and I guess every boddie else or baz dun or expects tu du the same so it would be best to let um. So mammy from that day tu this, would never talk about none uv her nabors, or nothin, but hens gooses and chickens, the little dog, the darlen baby she Bed it wus a lump uv sugar, but I never thout bo and bur young Sam, as sbe now calls me.

The North wen cajled to arms in I860 by the cry of protection to the Union. Id all the Northern States this was the watch word. Politicians repeated -it from the stump, preachers from their -pulpits, lector , ers from the desk, and the soldiers sang tho praise of the Union as they turned their ' faces to the South. The ono charge against the people, of the South was opposition to the Union. Congress declared that the war was waged solely to restore the Union, and that when the rebels laid down their arms it would be restored. The war is oror. The people in all the Southern States have sub-' initted to the national authorities. The States have remodelled their governments," and from the Potomac to the Rio Grands' ' the authority of the Federal government is uudisputed. In this state of national affairs patriotic men in all parts of the country are calling upon the dominant party. to fulfill-, the pledges made at the beginning of the war. The following appeal from the Rich mond Enquirer is full of point, and should be pondered by all who really desire a speedy restoration of our country to peace slid ton' stitutional freedom : " We appeal to all nfrTn of honor at the North, to respect tho pUdyetand auilraneei under which they waged the late War, and invited us to lay down our arms. We ap peal to them to observe their oath to sup port the Constitution. We appeal to them not to overthrow and revolutionize the gov-, ernment which they profess to venerate. We urge them not to alloOnny insane hate of the South, to unite them id measures justified only by the jpost scandalous false hoods, measures wholly without excuse in actual facundjosuel and arbitrary beyond anBjamirte id Vwiari ukase or Chinese edict We implort them to rescue the Con stitution from being made the sport and expedient of party, o secure party ends through abused constitutional forms. Where is liberty what has become of r- publican virtue when States are blotted 1 out for fear of their votct, Presidents im peached because an obstacle to a party, and the judiciary dishonored and overthrown for holding the scales of justice in even poise ? We call upon the men of the North to save ' themselves from the indelible disgrace and the country from the irreparable injury of the contemplated proceeding I Let them look at it Do they suppose tho South will be quieted and reconstructed . by the course proposed ? Could any amount of force applied to Massachusetts; make her people receive in quiet the disfranchisement df all her "Republicans" and the rule of her anti-war Democrats ? The oaso is more than paralleled here; for the exception's to the prevailing public sentiment are much fewer. And what is the character of most of the so-called "Union men" whose sway is to restore the South to the repose of the ' Sabbath? Mr: Buyer, in the debate upon - tha Eliot bill. ahowerJ tliat their m'nral aland. ing is not misunderstood To ordain the rule of these men as the permanent regimen of the South, would necessarily require the continual maintenance of a large army to) make it good, besides exposing them to per sonal perils which armies could riot prevent The thousand tales of horror now falsely ' tdd to justify it, would become realities. When men are maddened and made reck less, they cease to culoulato and cease to fearv n hen they aro driven from hope they are driven to crime. The distress that urges to . suicide prompts first to homicide; Com' nfittecs might indeed be. appointed to dilate on "tho horrible state of Southern society," but scenes far darker than we have pic tured will be justly chargeable upon ' tie the North, if it shall wanUmly and gratW- ' ' tously drive the South into such, dospe'nffe circumstances. The savage who covers his ' prisoner with lightwood faggots prickled in to the flesh, and then applies the kirrdfirfg torch, makes not a more barbarous use of bis advantage than the North will niaia' nt hers, by the adoption' of the' policy proposed; If in otlr great woe of defeat We tad' been! handed over to devils for torture, their cru elties would have bacn mercies compared to the treatment now threatene 1 by men whd r-wore on their honor tiift if we wo'ttMUy , down our arms they would receive us as and wbo Swear on the Holy Evangelists that thoy will observe the constitutional com pact. . ,,', a r r. ; . i j,. ... t t. 1 . ,.. 11 is vain, n is mte, it is rooiisn, 10 expeoa to establish quiet and contentment by the policy recommended.

The question of reconstruction, such as the country wants, ia no Qordiod knot to1 be untied by S sword- stroke;' . ' We entreat the men of the Nor to take counsel of their own knowledge 6f1iuman nature to commit' thoir interest to re member their oathf and engagement in their dealings with the South; If they will not admit us to our privileges at Washing-' ton, at leave us to peace in on own local ' affairs.
