A FINE ASSORTMENT OF AMERICAN WATCHES Constantly on hand at jon3-27m3 A. MYERS'S, grilling 3Cobc torg THE RUNAWAY MATCH. A STORY IN FIVE PARTS- BT HESTER HALUWELL (Continued.) MART GORING. Dr. Goring, unfortunately, did not show out quite clear upon another point, inter rupted Mr. Warberton. There was a gov erness residing with them, a Miss How ard, and he was too attentive to her; but Goring was a free man at all times in his manners with women. Some said it was her fault; that she laid herself out to at tract him; and, altogether, the affair had given pain and annoyance to Mrs, Goring. to Miss Howard received warning to leave, and the little Gorings were to be sent to school. Before the change was made, Mrs. Goring was poisoned. Was this governess suspected? inquired Sir Thomas Elliot. I don't know what other people mav have done, interposed Dr. Ashe, warmly", I had my opinion on the point, and always shall Iiave. Cut it does not do to speak out one's opinions too freely. There was no proof. Where was the strychnia procured? 1 rom Goiing's own surgery. At least, such was the conclusion drawn, for he kept some there. Though whether the bott'o had been touched or not, lie could not himself tell. Mrs. Goring ha 1 dined, and was asleep on her bed, the nurse hav in'' jror.e -o hyr dinner. During her ab 6cnce the poison was introduced into a Lfiass of r." .Her, which, as was customary stood at the bedside, and Mrs. Goring, when she awke, drank it. Goring was in the irarde.i the 'whole of this time, never came into the house at nil, as the servants testified, nntI aroused by the screams in Mrs. Gorhig'ä mom. Miss Goring was in lh3 dining room, which adjoined the sur gery, and the servants equally testiGed Unit if she had quitted it to go up-stairs they must have heard her.

I told him po. I3t what I 6ni 1 ivent for nothing, for he was Ixr.t upon it. His death was a mystery also; I never could f itlioni it. He married this girl Sir Thom as, went off with her for a fortnight, and came bac-k, to changed that we hardly knew him. He started on the journey a gay, healthy man; ho returned wasted in frame, broken in spirits, and in two months was laid in his wife's grave. There was no particular complaint, but l;e wasted away to death; lite rail- pined a tray, it seemed. And pined in silence, added Mr. War burton, for he never would acknowledge. I see, getiilemen, returned Sir Thomas, it was a bad aQVr altogether, from begin ning to end; one not too well calculated to bear the li 'ht of day. At any rate the light of day lias never been thrown upon it, answered Dr. Ashe. And the d:tihter of such a man shall never become William's wife, vehemently concluded Sir Thomas Elliot. But, to go back to the next room, gentlemen, he ad ded, aloud. My opinion We need not follow their consultation for their p.iiient. It came to end, and Sir Thoma Elliot went steaming up to town again by the first train. It happened to be a slow train, stoping at every station, which drove the physician into a fever nearly as gjoat as that of the poor lady he had been to visit, he was so intensely eagpr to meet his wifo. A compliment he had not paid her of recent years. Lady Elliot seized with avidity upon the information. It was a pretext for demand ing of William to break off the match. Of coarse, she sid, lie will not think of en tering upon the connection now. 'A presentiment struck me that some thing was wrong when Arn came into the schoolroom, and Sir Thomas Elliot wanted mc. These presentiments do come across us sometimes,, without knowing why or wherefore. Do they ever fail of being borne out? Never, with me. Surely thero was nothing unusual, nothing to create sur prise or uneasiness, in Sir Thomas Elliot's paying us a morning visit, connected as our families were about to be; yet before I got to the drawing-room door, all that was to take place seemed to flash upon me. Sir Thomas Turned round at my entrance, and prefixed what he had to say, by sta ting that he had been called to Middlebury, the previous day, on professional busi ness. I am aware of it, sir, I said. Mr. Wil liam took tea with us last evening, and mentioned that yo were gone there. How did he know?-growled Sir Thom as, under his breath. Called in and heard it from hi3 mother, I suppose. Well mad am, tobe brief for I have patients wait now for me at home, and know not how to spare time for coming here I am con cerned to tell you that I received no ac count of the late Dr. Goring (Doctor, as I hear him universally called, though I find he was only a general practitioner) which has considerably surprised me. In what way, sit? I asked, with ealra- n3s. Though, indesd, my heart fluttering sadly. Why madam, can you be ignorant that you must pardon my speaking plainly: I only repeat the statement as it was given to me that Dr. Goring was suspected of having poisoned his wife? Oh, sir! I interrupted, do not, I pray you, speak so injuriously of the dead. Dr. Goring was an honorable man. of a kind, good nature, a gentleman and a scholar; one not capable of so dreadful a crime. I am cognizant of all the particulars, and I assert that whoever accused Dn. Goring of killing her, .vas guilty of a wicked calum ny. But he was suspected, urged Sir Thom as. Not by thos'j who knew him, who knew the circumstances. There was some one close mixed up in the affair; a governess. Unhnppily there was, I answered, Say, rather, the author of it all. Sir Thomas, I added, with emphasis. But I whisper this only to you. Who afterwards became Dr. Goring's wife, continued Sir Thomas, looking stead fastly at mo I amashamed to say she did. Well, madam, this is just what I have heard. We will not differ about minor de tails, the facts are the same. Under the circumstances, you cannot be surprised that I have this morning forbidden my son to think more of Miss Goring. Oh, Sir Thomas Elliot! I exclaimed It will be a cruel thing! I hope not. I do not wish to hurt the young lady's feelings more than i una voidable, and I cast no reproach upon her, I believe her to be, personally, most esti mable. Still, I must have due Considera tions for my son's honor and for that of his family, and a young lady liable to be pointed at as as in short, as the daugh ter of Dr. Goring of Middlebury, cannot be eligible to become William EilioL'9 wifi. I think he said m?re; büt I was too grieved; tot stunned, I may say, to remem ber what it was. I only know he peremp torily broke off the negotiation for an al liance with Mr.ry Goiing. I watched him get into his cuniage, from the window, and I don't know that my heart had ever failed mc so painfully in my lifo. How wa3 i io break it to Mary? I did no. know, though 1 pandered over it all that livelong cay. When evening comes, and she finds i: does not bring him, 1 repeated to myself, how can I ever say to her, ot only this evening is he absent, but for all others? It will break her heart. Lucy wondered v.hy I absented myself from the schoolroom, and I could not puns ter CDUlUira to tell her. So the evening came, and I had said holhing, but it did bring Mr. William Eiliot. I called to the rvants to show him into th- dining-room, out to let him come up stairs and then ran down myself. Oh, Mr. William! I uttered, and for the very life of mc I could not help bursting into tears What now is to bi done? Ho look my hands kindly as ever, but his own were unsteady, and his face wore an unnatural paleness. What does Mary Fay? How docs she bear ii? were his first words. I have not dared to tell her. I did not know how. That is well. She had belter hear it from me. From vou! Oh, no Mr. Elliot. Believe me, yes, h? firmly rejoined. None can soothe it "to her in the telling as I can. It i3 the first shock and will bt the worst, I dread it for her. He turned from me, put his arm on the window-frame, and leaning his forehAid upon it. I did not like to witness his &o tion; his whole attitude spoke despair? Let me 6eo her, he resumed. I reflected, and believed it might be host. For what was I, what were we all to her, in comparison with William Elliot? One promise, Mr. Elliot, I said. You are not going ro talk to her of a coutina- il engagemeut. or a private marriage? Excuse me, but I have heard of such things being done. No: 1 givo you my honor. 1 have al ready given it to my mother. This even ing is to close my intercourse with Mary, and the interview I ask for, is that we mav bid each other farewell. I have no alter native. None. My mother he paused, and a sort of shudder came over him my mother pointed out that is I would 8.y that she exacted a promise from me that I would never marry clandestinely; with out her full consent. And T gave it. Quite right. You could not have done otherwise. And now that they have taken this pre judice against Mary's family, to ask for consent would be fruitless. 5o there is no hope, and I cannot help myself. But they had better he lowered his voice to a whis per have destroyed us both, a3 her moth er was destroyed. It would have been more merciful. I went up to the diawing-room, and beckoned Mary out. Oh, aunt! she said, what is all this? Is anything the matter? Yes, dear child, there is, I answered, fondly stroking tlown her hair, while the ready tears gathered in my eyes. I have known it all day, and I could not tell you. William Elliot will; he is in the dining room. Now do not agitate yourself. But what is it? Are we--she trembled excessively is he Go to him my darling. He will soothe it to you better than I can. So she went into the room, and Mr. El liot moved forward, and closed the door behind them, while I par ad about in the hall, outside, like a troubled ghost. It was qnito dusk whan he came out to leave, but the hall lamp was light, and I saw the traces of deep emotion, of tears, on both faces. Yes. on both; and you need not despise William Elliot for that. We don't many of us, throughout our lives, cro through such a trying interview as that had been to him. God bless you, dear Miss Halliwell, he said, and thank you for the maBj courte sies, th9 kindness you shown me. And God bless you, Mary, he added, in a whis per, and remember what I have said. Though they have succeeded in separating us, though your path must lie one way and min'? another, and we may not meei again, you will ever be first in the heart of William Elliot. The sins of th3 fathets shall be visited upon the children! Was it ever exemplifi ed, in any case, more plainly than this? When my random, thoughtless brother-in law, Matthew Goring, made love to his daughter's governess, or encouraged her to make it to him whichever it might be, outraging hia wife, outraging his children, outraging me, (I who pointed out his wick ed folly to him, and got ridicule from him for my pains,) did he imagine that every folly would hft the means, hereafter, of de stroying his dearest child's happiness and prospects in life? No. Yet it proved so. Oh, men! vou who have wives and chil dren, how caref 1 should you be to tread in the right path! A little dereliction from it may seem to you but a light matter, not worth a thought, only worth the amuse ment of the moment; it feemed so to Dr. Goring. Yet for hirn what did it bring forth? His wife's destruction; hi disgrace ful second marriage; his own early death; the breaking up of hi' children's home, and the driving them out, orphans, into the world. And now the fatality was pur suing even them! Lightly enough does man commit sin, but when on the point of wilfully falling into iti he would do well to pause and remember that the promises of God are never broken, and that one of his promises is, I will visit the sins of fathers upon the children. RIGHT AT LAST. Lut us relate more iirdetail than we have done, wlnt ensued in that unhappy con versation to which we have alluded, be tween William Elliot and his mother. Nev er until now, had William Elliot been arous ed to indignation against his parents, for he TV33 A dutiful son, 1 and fonJly attached to them. Why persist in attributing our conduct to caprice, when we are only actuated by a desire for your honor and happiness? urg ed Lady Elliot. There is no help for it, William. You cannot many one whose name was stained with sin. I have mad- it my business to inquire the particulars of tha prejudice against -Dr. Goring, returned Mr. Elli.t. When my father stated last night what he had heard at Middlebury, I determined to seek out a fellow I knov, who com 3 3 there. Stone, his name is; ho is reading for the Bar, his chambers contiguous to mine, in Lyncoln's Inn. 1 have bjen with him this morning, and heard the details of the affair, perhaps more fully than my f ithei did, and I would stake my life on Ur. Voiing?s innocence. As if a London law student, young and credulous like yourself, could know any thing of such particulars! slightingly spoke Lady Elliot. He was at homo when it happened, re- plied William, his pale but handsome face flushing with pain at his mother's tone. His lather. Stone, of Middlebury. was so licitor to Dr. Goring; they live within a fcw doors of each other; the families were on terms of intimacy, and young Stone knows all, even to the minute details. Do not cast riJicule on what I say, mother. Dr. Go ring was a cruelly aspersed man. No, said her ladyship. Yes, persisted Mr. Eiliot. Were I a perfectly uninterested party, I should say the same. I look at th 3 facts dispassion ately, and my reasons t;lls me so. How very obstinate you are William! Do you dispute that Mrs. Goring died the death she did? No. On that point, unhapily, there is no room to doubt. Or that some one residing in tha house must have dealt her dea'.h out to her? So it woula seem. Then who was that person? Not her husband. But there was an other. The governess. But Dr. Goring after wards made that woman his second wife. Were thero no crime, no dishonor in that, William. William Elliot safsilent, his brow con tracting. He cannot be defended there, it wa3 an unseemly connexion; but Dr. Goring nev er would, or did, credit aught against her. I tell you what, mother, had you and Sir Thomas not been secretly averse to my marriage, yourselves, I should never have had Dr. Goring's conduct brought up as a plea against it. xou are prejudiced and unjust, said Lady Elliot. If we argue till night we 6hall not aree. I am sorry for that, observed William. For, if sj, only one course is open to me now. What is it? cried Lady Elliot quickly. Though I assure you, my dearest moth er,it will be withthe very utmost reluctance that I adopt it. That of marrying with out your consent. Lady Elliot half sprang from her chair, and a sound of pain, too sharp for a groan, escaped her. My happiness, my very life, ars bound up in Miss Goring, ho resumed. To sep arata us now, after allowing the intimacy, sanctioning the measures of our marriage, would be cruel injustice. I will not sub mit to it. William, she uttered, in visible agita tion, you cannot marry in defiance of your father and mother. You daro not. Not without deliberation, and in grief and great repugnance, have I formed the resolution, but I owe a duty to Miss Gor ing as well as to my father and mother. The proposed allowance to rae I shall not expect or ask for. The house I had taken I must give up, and look out for a small er one, and we must make my own income suffice for our wants, until I can bring my profession into use. You speak of duty to Miss Goring, she racntrtaJ V - a I ! . 1. t t .-.oiuC, nnu ciuoiiou, i;tvu you iurgouen that to your parents lies ycur first and foremost duty? A duty ordained of God. Mother, I have forgotten nothing. I have debated the question with myself upon all points. And I believe that I am doing right in marrying. In defiance, she repeated, of your fath er and mother? In defiance? I am sorry that they drive me to it. For saveral minutes Lady Elliot's agita tion had been increasing, and it appeared now, to rise beyond control. Two crim son spots shone on her pale cheeks, her slight frame shook as with agitation, and her hands grasped those of h.r sons. Listen, William, she said; I will tell you a painful tale. You may have gathered something of ii in your boyhood, but not its details. Will you listen? Or are you going to despise even my words? My dear mother! You know I will listen ail in reverence. If you would af ford me the opportunity to be reverent in all things! I was a happy girl at home. My moth er died, and then I owed my father a double duty. I was but a child, barely eighteen, when a young man, handsome, William as you are now, was introduced to us. He was extravagant, random; but he loved me, and that was all I cared for. Our attachment became known to my fath er. He deemed this gentleman no eligible match for me, he doubted his ability in many ways, to render me happy; and he put a stop to our meetings. He forbid me to think mors of him; he said if I did, in spite of his veto, he would discard me from his house forever. On the other ide the friends were equally averse to it, and his parents bade him, though in all kindness, to shrink from the fruits of dis obedience. His father, a clergyman, beg- j ged of him not to brave u; he told him that deliberate disobedience to a parent was surely visited on a child's head. Happy for us both had we attended to their coun sel, but youth, in its ardor, sees not things as they are; in after years, when soberness, experience, judgment have come to them they look back, and marvel at their olitid ness. W?, he and I Oh, William! that I should have such an avowal to make to you! set our parents interdiction at nought, I ran away from my home with him to become his wife. The man was Thomas Elliot, your father. She was excessively excited . Her son would have begged of her not to disturb herself, but she waved away his interrup tion. We gloried in having deceived them. Not so much for the deceit, in itself wc had not quite descended to that as that we had obtained our own will. But, William how did it work? Hew does such sin al ways work? She. paused, .almost, as she waited for an answer. He did not speak. i-ook abroad in society and watch the results, sew narrowly all those who have thus rebellionsly entered upon their own career. Sooner or later, more or less bit terly, retribution come3 home to them. It may rarely be attributed to its right cause, even by themselves, and many here are who would laugh at what I am now say ing. None have had the cause, that I have, to note these things; and it is from long experience, from repeated instances I have witnessed of the confirmation of my opinion that my firm conviction has been formed. Some are visited through pover ty; some in their children; some in them selves, in their unhappy life. We, Wil liam, had a taste of all. In the early years of our union, it was one strulo to live, perhaps you remember yet. our pinchings and contrivances. My'chihlren died off, save you, one after another; and she, Clara, who remained to us Lady Elliot sank her voice to a whisper were better off had she followed them. I, and he whom I chose, have had no mutual happiness, for we found that we were as unsuitsd to each other as a man and wife can be. My father never forgave rae, so for his remaining years, and they were many, I was an alien from him. Thus I have dragged through life trouble pursu ing me, and the conciousness of my sin ever haunting me, William, before you talk of marrying Mary Goring, you should know what it is to brave, and live under a parent's curse. William Elliot did not reply, but his face wore a look of keen anxiety. At morning, at the sun's risingjat even ing, when it sets; in the nervousness of the dark night; in the glare of mid day was my disobedience presented to me, heavily it pressed upon me; I would have forfeited all I possessed in life, even niv remaining years, to have redeemed it; and William I prayed, to God that He would in mercy ke?p my children from committing the like sin. Lady Elliot paused for breath, and her face, a sufficiently young still in years, wa3 blanched and her eyes wero strained on her son. I prayed it as the greatest mercy that could then be accorded me: I have never ceased prajing for it. William, will you, my ever-loving and dutiful boy, bo the one to set that prayer at naught. No auswer. His lips were a3 white as her own. You are my first-borne, my first and dearest, in you rests all the hope left to me; what other comfort have I left to life? I have said to myself, now and then, The closing years of my existence shall be brighter than my earlier ones, for my dar ling son shall be my stay and solace! Oh, William, William! give me your promise nowl I kneel to beg it!, say that you will never marry without our consent. The lines of his pnle face were working; it seemed that he would speak, but could not. Lady Elliot had shrunk down at his feet, and would not rise. If you bring upon yourself the same wretched fate, which has been our pain, I shall nevei know another moment's Deace. I shall repine that you did not die in in- j fancy; I shall wish, more than I have ev er done, that I may die.andbe at rest from the trouble and care of this weary world. William, it is your mother who pleads to yotu Promise that you will never mary in disobedience. IIow could he resist such pleading he, with duty and affection planted in his heart by nature, and hitherto fondly cherished? It was not rjossible. Mother I nromise it, he uttered, as long as you and my fath er shall live. And after'that ? After that? Nay, I will not extort a further promise. You will then be your own master. But until that time you pass your word, William? I do. You have it. Thank God now I am at rest. Which is equivolent to undertaking nev er to marry at all, murmered the unhappy young man, as he arose and quitted the room. Oh, Mary, how shall I break you? Thus it occurred that Mr. William Elli ot, following the Ptcpsjf Iiis father, Sir Thomas, who had been down in the morn ing at Halliwell House, went there also himself, and took his leave of Mary Gor ing. CONCLUDED NLXT WEZK. i&ErThc following tribute to the talents of a townsman we copy with nleasu.re from the xsew. York Alias. Its encomiums up on the work are richly meriiej if 3eauiy' may be taken a3 a specimen. PtiAr.os, Logansport. We have received, through the hands of a lady; from the publisher, John D. Peters, of Indianapolis. Indiana, a copy of a work entii-ed a 'Few Poems. The quaintnessand simplicity of the titte arrest ed our attention. We have read with avid ity, every poem embraced in it, and they are sixteen of them, devoted to a3 many subjects. All possess, in a pre-eminent degree, the highest attributes of legiti mate poetry. The work is from the pen of Hon. Horace P. BiJdle, a gentleman who may confidently rank himself with the more successful poHs of the country. We copy one of Lis effusions as a specimen of the high merit of all. It is addressed to Beauty, and a single perusal of it will pro duce the conviction on all, that it eminäted from one of those bards who derive inspi ration directly from Helicon. Never was so much poetry embodied in so limited a number of lines. BEAUTY. She seemed a godness from the blest I)??cenleJ, with a raven cloud Of ringle s falling oVr a breast Their lichuoss ctfuli but half enshroud. Her rohe was woven of the light, Thro' which her form so sweetly shjne; That all was beautiful and bright As a soft cloud upon the moon. .. Her h3om sccmoii like now unprcst, Just newly fallen on the mead, TJic vestment o're her swelling breast Sccracd proud of what it scarcely hid. Her lips were like the buds of Spring Just hurst apart their sweets to show, Ilerchceks like opening flowers tli.it brin-- A more subdued but sweeter glow. Her brow, ah! what was like her brow! Enveloped in its veiny skin, Transparent as the other's slow, Too pur to lüde the thought within! Her eyes, ah! what was like her eyes! Their like to earth was never given, They, like the stars of dewy skies, Were fitly made to shine in Heaven! And yet t'wras not her eyes nor face Alone charmed, but'all combined, Blended in one exquisite grace, Made radiant by a heavenly mind! Their Antecedents. In the year 1857 the leaders in the emcute at Harper's Ferry were regarded as not only good Republicans, but as sane and worthy men, and in every respect entitled to the confidenca of the Republican party. Then they were regarded as 'patriots' and their Kansas deeds were hailed as just, and worthy the Republican cause. In all the Republican papers they wee heralded as men truly devoted to the Repubh'ean cause and faithfully carrying o'ut Republican prin ciples. Of the party engaged with Browx in the Harper's Ferry conspiracy, five were from Connecticut. The Hartford Times is searching out their antecedents, as furn ished from Republican sources. It refers to the files of th? Hartford Courant, of 1857, a Republican paper then and nor pure and undoubted, for soms account of Brows, from which it copies as foüows; Capt. John Brown, of Ossawatomie, Kansas, just the man to inspirit the Free State men and play the game of bluff against the serfs of the slave owners in Kansas, desires some material aid to keep his arms sta3ed up, while he fights the battles of freedom against the border ruf fians. BROWN IS JUST THE MAN WE NEED IN KANSAS; and if every man who loves freedom and can spare a dollar or two. would put it in Brown's purse, we will warrant they will get their money's worth out of Brown hereafter. Let us back up the men who are fighting our bat tles. The Times argues that, it Browx was right then, he is right now, and that if it was their duty to back him up while fight ing their battles then, his former friends should not desert him now. Jonx E. Cook, Crowx's aid, is thus al luded to in the Courant, of September 1, 1059: John E. Cook Esq., a lawyer from Law rence, Kansas, is expected in town to day, and will epeak atTouro Hall this evening, upon the wrongs and the wants of Kansas. Mr. Cook went from Handdam to Kansas, and while there has made himself perfectly familiar with the movomentsof both parties. He starts for Kansas on Thursday, at the head of a brave company of men, who go prepared to defend themselves from attack, and to give the Ruffians an opportunity, if they can or dare to earn the reward of el even hundred dollars, which his been of fered for his scalp, We are assured that he is a brave, fearless man, and defies them. Let there be a grand rally to hear the truth. A Game Dinner. We heard an amusing story the other day of a novel feast, that wo do not reccol lect ever to have seen in print. It is too good tobe lost;and although it may certain ly lose in our telling we may succeed in giving the point. Shortly after the war with Great Britain, an aristocratic English gentleman built a fine residence in the vicinity of Fort Gorge, on the Niagara frontier and, in accordance with the old country idea of delusiveness, he enclosed his ground with a high, tight fence. Hero he lived like an old English gentleman one of the olden time which the exception that none but the elite of the Province and the officers of the neighbor ing garrisons were, permitted to pass his rrate. There was'avery good understand- j ir.g between the American officers at Fort Niagara and the British at Fort George, and the men were permitted occasionally to visit back and forth. Among the American solders was a queer chap, who stuttered terribly, was very fond nf hunt ing, and who was always getting into soma sort of mischief. On3 day this chip took the small boat that lay moored at the foot of the walls of the fort, ar.d crossed over to the Canadian shore for a hunt. IIa wandered over sev eral miles in the rear of Fort Georg, with out meeting any game, and on his return seeing a crcv on a tree within the inclosure of the aristocratic Englishman, he scaled the hhjh fenc?. fired and brought down hlrf game. Colon?!, or whatever his title may have been we will call him Colonel any how witnessed the transaction, and ad vanced while our souldier was reloading, lie wns very angry, but seeing the Yankee standing coolly with a loaded gun in his baud, he gulped down Isis passion for the moment, and meiely asked him if he killed the crow. The soldier replied he did. "I am sorrv," said the Colonel, 'for ho was a pot. Iy-tl;o bye, that is a very pretty gun will you be 60 kind as to let me look at it?' The soldier complied with tb request. The Englishman to k the un, stepped back a few race, took delib- earte aim, and then broka forth m a lit ado of abuse, concluding with an order to stoop down and take a bite of the crow or he would blow his brains out. The soldier explained, r.pologizcd and entreated. But it was no use. There was shoot in the Englishman's e3'o there was no help for it and the stuttering soldier stooped and look a bite of the crow, but swallow it he could not. Up came his breakfast bis dinner the dy before and it really appeared as if ho would throw up his toe-nails. The Eng lishman gloated on the misery of his vic tim, and smiled complacently at every additional heave. V hen tie vomiting, and had wiped his eyes, the Col onel handed him bis gun, wi'.h tha lemarkl "Now, you rascal, that 3 ill teach you how to poach os a gentleman's enclosure. The yankee soldier look his gun,- and the Colonel might have seen the devil in his eye if he had looked close. Stepping ba',-k, he took deliberate aim at the heart of his host, and ordered him instantly to finish the crow. Angry expostulations, prayers and entreaties were useless things. There wa-s shoot in the American's evs then, as there had been in the English eye before. There was no help at hand, and lie took a bite of the crow. One bite was enough to send all the good dinners he had eaten late ly on th? same journey with the garrison fare of the soldier, and while the English man was in an agony of sickness, Jonathan e caped to the American shore. '1 he next morning early, the' Com mandant of Fort Niagara was sitting in his quarters, Col. was announced. Sir, said Colonel , 'I come to demand the punishment of one of yorr men, who yes- tcrd.iy entered my piemises, and commit ted a great outrage. We have 300 men here, and it would be difficult for me to know who you mean, said the American officer. The Englishman described him as a Ion dangling, stuttering, etoep shouldered devil. 'Ahl I know who you mean, said the ofneer 'he is alwavs rettinir into mischief. Orderly, call Tom. In a fw moments Tom fcn'.ertd. and stood as straight as his natural build would allow, while not a trace of emotion was tU- ible in his countenance. Tom, said the ofiicer. do you know this gentleman? ie-ye-ye-es, sir. Where di 1 you ever see him before? 'I-I-I, 6aid Tom, stuttering awfully, but retaining the grave expression natural to his face; I di-di-di ned with him yesterday. ve believe iom was not punished. 7n dianapclis Sentinel.
