They vowed they would rather die than do so. For three days long shots had been fired at them : but, as the fortress was built of mud, no soon er was the smallest breach made, than it was instantly closed up, and rebuilt stronger than ever. One of the com manders advised the adoption of a storming party. His brother officer, however, differed with him, urging that the place was too well garrisoned 1 to uu easuy carneu uy ussauu. xno opinions of the two leaders were for warded to Calcutta, and the reply was expected to be returned on the morrow. James Bunting (so we will call the old tar) heard all these palavers, as he styled them, and looked very know ing. lle understood mere was a chance of fighting, so felt perfectly de lighted. To his berth he descended, and, as usual, when he was particu larly happy, managed to get particu larly drunk, and turned in evidently the worse for liquor. Now, it so hap pened that in about an hour after he had thus settled himself in his ham mock, he suddenly awoke. A burn ing lever, an agonizing thirst parched his mouth : so he arose and went to his locker ; but, alas! he had drunk every drop of the liquid he possessed; and where to find more he knew not. On board the vessel he had no hopes ; shore was his only chance : so, unseen by any one, he made his way into the water, by lowering himself from the chains or from a port-hole, or some such place, and struck out for the beach, where he landed saicly, in spite of alligators, sentinels, and all other similar oppositions. When he had shaken the water from his hair, and hitched up his trow- sers, he began to look around for a shop, where he could purchase some of that liquor, or some arrack, to take the chill off the water he had swal lowed ; but, alas! no building of the kind met his view not a single hab itation could he see. The fort frown ed gloomily over him in sullen gran deur; no other place where spirits were likely to be found could he dis cover, thoagh he peered anxiously round on every side. To lose time to be laughed at by his comrades on his return, from the wild goose chase he had undertaken was by no means palatable to Bunting. To be baulked is a maxim unkown to a sai lor ; so, rather than lose his grog, he determined to lose his life, or, at all events, to risk it. Without further ado. he began scaling the walls of the fort. This ho easi'y managed, and in a few Momei.ts found himself at the top of tha glacis. Elated at his suc cess, he began shaiting as loud as he could bawl, to the horror of the garri son, wh.). instantly fancying them selves a!$allo J, started up, and were senses ; lor there lay the two irigates and their floated the union jack, for which he had so often risked his me. "Shiver my timbers! but this is a queer go!" said he; and with that lie twitch ed uphis trowsers, as usual, and shook the pigtail, which then hung irom eve ry sailor's head. The vessel, perceiving a man thus expose himself began to fire at our he ro, "Avast there?" shouted Jim ; but, as they did not hear hum, or attend to him, no "Tan to tlitr principle- vatictj, and, climbing up the flag-staff, pulled down the Dutch colors, and hoisted up an old ragged turban he found lying in one ot the streets. 1 he com manders of the vessels thought this extremely odd. Something strange had evidently happened ; so they sent a boat on shore, bearing a fl.ig of truce, carried by the first lieutenant of one of the frigates. Unmolested, the party marched vp to the fort; and, as the gates were open, unmolested they marched into it. Not a soul did they meet, until Jim strutted up to them. "Hollca,yousir, what is the mean ing of this ?" said the first lieutenant to Bunting, in a voice of anger, for it was sadly infra dig. for an officer of his rank to have been thus sent off to narley with a common sailor. "What is the meaning of this?" "Please your honor, I hope you won't be angry, leeftenant : but some how. or other, I've taken this place. The enemy have cut the painter, and sheared off." Jim nodded. "And who the devil gave you leave to do so, I should lile much to know? Get on board, sir, directly." "Ay, ay, sir," replied Jim, respect fully, instantly doing as he was desired. In the meantime, the lieutenant went, and formally took possession ol the place, by running up the British colors, then writing a most pompous despatch, in which he recommended the real captor to be tried for leaving his ship without permission, he sent it back by a young midshipman, remai ning behind himself, with half-a-dozen sailors, in order, as he expressed it, to garrison the fort. Strange to say, his recommendation was attended to, and Jim Bunting brought to a court martial, who, most reluctantly, were compelled to find him guilty adjudging him, however to undergo the least possible punish ment that could be inflicted for a gla ring breach of discipline. Jim felt highly indignant at the turn things had taken. He could not help fancy ing himself an ill used man, but he bore it stoically. When, however, he heard the verdict delivered when he heard himself pronounced guilty RIGHTS OF WOMKN. There i a paper mihlishcd in Bos ton called tho Rose Bud, edited by n lady. Tho way she occasionally rups ' ftonm ol'ber own K ovor tJio hoad is a caution. She says: "Wo are extensively acquainted with female operatives ; and can safe ly say, that, though generous, confi ding, and lovely, they have a gtvat deal more respect for character than those in the higher circles, whoso faults, if they have any, are covered with 'golden tapestry,' and thus hid from the vulgar gaze of the world." In the following she hits the bach elors. Speaking of women, she says, "Our aim now is, to defend her rights to a liberal education ; and to defend the 'seamstress,' or the wo man who 'takes in.' This class of fe males ha,ve been imposed upon sneered at by the senseless elite ; and their company shunned as if a moral pestilence mingled in their breath ! The fact is, this is the most useful class of females, and ought to be supported and encouraged ; and, instead of the poor pittance which they now receive under the namd of wages (?) hardljf enough to keep spirit and soul in ac tion, they should be liberally paid; that they might have heart to work, and live comfortably, cheerfully, and happy. , . ! A tailor may be a scamp of an old bachelor, too can be paid a price and a half for undertaking a garment, which he sends toa 'female seamstress' whom he compels ta do the work for one-half price ; thus . making for him self a clear profit of one hundred per cent. for what? Why, forsooth, cut ting a garment." Are women slaves? It so, lets have an understanding in the matter ; and let the lords of crea tion do the business of master and o vcrseer as it should be done! Why let us have any money at all? Won't food and a little clothing do just as well?" Globe. Tht power of Falsehood. Tho follow. ing anecdote was told on a trial lately, by ; distinguished French adrocate: Ma dame Adelaide, sister of the King of France, in 1836, look under her protection a young lady of family, placed tier at a boarding school, and received her frequent j on holydajs at her owa apartments in (he palace. Suddenly the protfge announ' ced to the achonhnistress and her intimate friends that she was about to be married, under the auspices of her patroness, to a young Lieutenant Colonel, to whom she bad been introduced by her Royal High ness, and in evidence or the truth of her assertions, produced letters on the subject! with the seal of the Princess, and in . hand-writing which all acquainted with that of Madame Adelaide, believed to be hers. Subsequent letters were alto dis played, in which ber Royal Highness was made to etate, first, that the intended husband was detained away by his re giraental duties thea that he was dan. gerously ill, and ultimately that he was dead and buried. The young lady up on this, gave herself op to such violent grief, that fears were entertained for her own life. The only consolation she would listen to, was the permission to put ber self into the mourning of a widow, and go weep over the tomb of ber first Io' ver. The under goveraess accompanied her to the cemetery of Pere la Chaise, and at tbe gate, desired to have pointed out tbe place of interment of Lieutenant Colonel Count M" who bad died week before, at the age of twentyfive. The Conceierge searched the register, and thea assured the enquirers that it did not contain the entry of any aoch burial, which consequently must, be said, have ,iks alias elMwhtr.

The setoniehment of thu I'M"- --- 4 tho extrsordinarv nstative, and on eeetag letters apparently in her own handwriting, but which she had neter written, and re' cognittng impressions from a seal which did really belong to her, could not be described. No such person ss Lieutenant Colonel Count M. was known to hr Royal Highness, coniequently she neer j could have contemplated any such alliance for her pupil, nor have anounced to htt ' his illness and death. In fact, the young lady had been induced by a morbid im agination to invent the wkole tale to purloin one of her patroness' seals, imi tate her hand-writing, compose the ficti cious letters, snd by bribing an old Her' vant, induced her to pu them into the post. Her mind however, was affected with the same grief from her owa delibe rate inveution, as if all the circumstances hnd really existed Pieajunt.
