Dear William. m.v William, Come home! A TRUE STORY OF PERIL. Wlien I was bowman of the larboard or chief mate's boat, in the Druid, we lowered one afternoon in chase of 'sixty-barrel bulls" 011 a hat was known to the initiated as I'Middle Ground," between Australia and New Zealand. We made fust to one of the whale, a lively fellow, who gave us someihing of a dance before we succeeded in giving his death wound. But all the time our steed had been run ning us to leeward, and meanwhile the cap tain ha-1 struck another, and the ship kept q r luff, so as to support the windward boats. The second mate also kept near the cap tain, and when our whaie went in his flurry," which was not until nearly sun down, we could mate out from the maneu vers of the ship that the bouts were wind ward of her. The sun was just dipping when we cot a hole cut in our whale's nib-end, and a strap rove for towing. A dark cloud bank was ittling down in the windward horizon, out of which a strong wind might be ex pected on short notice. An attempt with a single boat, to tow the wha e to wind ward would be sheer folly; there was noth ing for us to do but to either give up our prize, or to wait the movement of the ship. The mate looted anxiously at the ship, and at the threatening aspect of the weath er; then at the sixty-barrel buli, the' prize we had fought so bard to win, and seemed unable, for a time, to make up his mind what course to pursue. "What do you think of it, Beers?" said he, at last, to his boatsteerer, with the manner of one who wishes to divide his re sponsibilities with counselors. "Well, don't know, sir; it looks kind o' jubrious to hang on here, the ship won't run off the wind tiJI s-he ets that whale fluked, and I don't know as she will then. And there will be a change of weather within an hour." "And it'll be dark iu less than an hour," added the male. "If there was a prospect of fair weather, I wouldn't care for the darkness, because we could keep the run of each other's lights; but as it is, I think we'd better waif the whale and get to the ship while we have daylight." A hole was cut iu the body of the whale, and the "waif," a flag, attached to a slen drn spruce staff from the towing strap. and the order given to pull ahead, the boat s head being laid to windward, on a bee-line for the ship, then some four miles off. We were glad enough, it must be confess ed, to aliandon the whale, and consult our own safety. It was very early in the voy age, and no similar emergency had before occurred. We had seen just enough of the captain to feel that he was a driver, where the interest of the voyage was concerned. Consequently the mate, a very young offi cer, felt a, keen responsibility, and an Vquully keen anxiety to k-am how his Course would be Judged. It was quite dark when we pulled up un der the lee of the Druid within hail; but the black squall still hung threatening in the sky. and there had been as yet no ac tual change in the weather. The ship bad her helm up, and was just in the act of paving off, while the signal-luutern was swaving and flickering at the mizzen peak. wnat mine tua you leave him for?" The male made no reply to the question until the boat was secured alongside by her warp, and he had jumped in on the quar ter deck. The ship continued swinging off until her head was pointed in the right direction,but, with her topsails on the cap, and one whale fluked alongside, her pro gress was not rapid. We uiun t think it prudent to lie by. said Mr. Andrews, in an apologetic tone. " as the ship was so far from us, and every appearance of stormy weather " " we didn t think, sir t returned Cap tain Gibbs. "Who's we?

"Well, 1 11 bet 1 can run as much risk as any live man of my inches, if you think it prudent to do so. But I had charge of other men's lives, and I should feel just as responsible to you and them, if nau errea the other way by venturing too much, and any' accident had happened. Haul up the boat, my crew, and jump in." 1101a on, Mr. Andrews, said the Cap tain. " We can run down the best part of the distance with the ship." wnen we judged ourselves within a mile of where the whale had been left, the ship was then brought to the wind again. mere naa as yet been no increase of wind. and, though the night was very dark, the me oank or squall appeared to nave lilted little, and . to have a less heavy appear ance than at sundown.

I think I could, at any rate." All right," was the reply, with a ner vous twitching that showed how the young man was stung by the words. If you can do it I can." " He ought to bear now three points off the weather bow," were the last words thrown at us, as we cast oil from-the ship and departed to "out oars." "Pull right on nereway, and you must Ian into his slick, and then you can follow down." betting our light as soon as we were well clear, w passed away into the darkness, leaving our floating home behind, until the mm signal Hi ner gas iaaea 10 a mere speck in the distance. It was evident from the air of quiet determination about Mr. Andrews that he would cruise all night rather than return to the shin with out his whale. We at the oars had nothing to say about the matter ; it was ours sim ply to obey. It was long before we found any trace of the "slick, but after pulling back and forth over the ground, fearful 61 passing on one side of it, and getting too far lee ward, we at last bad the satisfaction to see we were in it; a positive assurance that we still had the water-cause of the object of our search. At the same time a brighter light flamed up from the ship, made from uurning old scraps on the back arcnes 01 try-works, and we made out that she was again keeping off to be nearer to us. We pulled lustily now. being encouraged by the signs, and still keeping in the slick, followed it as our guide; for so dark was the night, we could not possibly see the whale until we should be very close upon Old Beers stood up in the head of the boat, looking with all the eyes in his head, to catch a glimpse, either of the waif, or of the wash or " white water " which would indicate the whale's position. But now there was suddenly a change in the air, which I could only describe as a ense of dilution or refraction, with a sigh inf sound that was ominous of approach ing evil. The weather quarter of the heavens, instead of darkening more, ap peared to lighten a little, and the black pair unlit in two and parted right and left. Out of it came a few drops of rain and then the wind followed with a vengeance. The) first blast struck us with a fury that the first mate had enough to do to keep the boat from broaching to, and taking the whole .force of its broadside on. We ship ped ii. M the oars as fast as possible, and let h drive to leeward, croucoing down in our ?lacs, unable to see anything, or to i ; : " " change the course of onr craft, and run ning blindly off into Jhe darkness. Our little taper in the boat lantern was extin guished at once, and could be of no further service. We felt, instinctively, that the ship would luff to again, as the captain would not run the risk of passing us: and here we were, rushing away before the gale and every moment lesseuingour chances of salety. 1 here was a sudden flashing n of her light iust as the snnail st mclr an. then we lost sight of it entirely. The faint report of a musket followed, a signal of recall, but we could neither answer nor o ley it. Onward we rushed, before the wind shrinking down into the boat, and clinging to the gunwales and the thwarts, all of us but the officer,, who held fast to his steer- lng-oar to keep her head in the only safe direction. No word was spoken oy the men, but each fully realized, the peril we were in, and each asked himself the ques tion 01 me or death, now long is this going to last? ll was answered by a shock so sudden as to throw us all together iti'a con fused heap. Iu a crash of everything moveable, and a crackling of the boats fabric it.self, we rolled - into me sea and were overwhelmed. I can hardly tell in words what followed. As soon as I regained breath a little, I struck out and grabbed nothing but smooth, olinnery substance, on which 1 could get no hold, aim the next moment was roiled off again and plunged into the sea. I understood the truth now. In the darkness we had run 03 to the whale with out seeing it. At my next attempt I clutched a rope, which 1 felt to be the bite of a whale line. and underrunuing this, I soon came to the pole of an iron or harpoon. By this I was enabled to hang on, and, after being half drowned in my struggles, I succeeded in drawing a bite of the line under the whale's fin, until it brought up firmly at the " knuckle." I could then secure myself upon the whale to avoid sliding off at every roll. The situation was by no means a pleasant one, as I had all I could do to keep my mouth entirely above water. While I was thus being absorbed in the one object of securing my own temporary safety, the rest of my shipmates had all disappeared, nor was any to be seen or heard, either of them or the boat. A light spruce pole and a paddle were dashed in my way, and I secured them by cutting holes with my sheath-knife, and planting them, like masts, in the blubber of the whale, but these were all 1 could find. The waif set in the whale by Mr. Andrews still stood in its place, and this was important,' as it might be the means of the ship find ing me, could I keep alive where I was till daylight. Within halt an hour af ler I se cured a landing upon the floating island the squaft was all over, and the wind set tled down again to a steady moderate breeze. The heavens were clear overhead, and it was as light as it could be on a moonless night, uut where were my com rades? And, of more vital importance to poor me, where was the Druid ? " Jiight.no I 1 actually sung out the words, as I had just spit half a pint or less of brine from my mouth, and shaking mv eyes clear, they rested upon a bright light directly in the wind's eye from me. Then there was a bunding nasn, and the report of the Druid's old carriage gun thundered J forth, so near as to be startling, aud 1 roared with ail the voice at my command, which was not much, hoping to make my self heard. More light! a fierce flame, now evidently nearing me. Very soon I could make out the ships sails in the immediate glare of the light, and then the whole out line ol the stern, old crait. My lungs were strained to their utmost power, for my only chance of safety de pended on attracting their attent ion before they should sweep on before me. If left astern unknown to them, there was little or no hopes of salvation. But sharp eyes were on the alert, below and aloft, for they hod found the whale's " slick " and were following it down. My cry was heard and the ship brought rapidly up in the wind, while two boats were drop ped into the water and manned as quickly as eager men could accomplish it. 1 never relaxed my cries until one of the boats were near enough to see the waif, and sent up their answering shout. I was pulled from my cramped position into the boat Captain Gibbs, who, seemingly excited al most to insanity, had comejiimself on this errand 01 rescue, My story, which I told in as few words as possible, excited them still more, we shot alongside, and I was helped up the deck, while he was issuing all sorts of urgent orders. All three boats were soon down, with directions to " spread their chances," and to search thoroughly every "foot of ground" or sea as they went. A set of signals were rapidly agreed upon, and the ship-keepers had their orders issued faster than they could take in their meaning. - As the cap tain sprang down the side again into his boat, I overheard him say in a low, bitter tone: "God help me! Why did I do it?" And God did help him. Within an hour the reports of three muskets from the boats told us that the lost ones were found and strange to say all were alive, though well-nigh exhausted. The boat had filled and rolled bottom up, but all succeeded in climbing upon her bottom, through the superhuman exertions of Mr. Andrews, who, all said, appeared to take little care of his own life, so that he could save the others. The stronger supported the weaker ones, and kept them upon the boat's bot tom ; but the preservation of the whole crew seemed to be miraculous, when I think of it this present writing. The old colored boat-steerer, Beers, was almost gone, being, in fact, quite insensi ble w'hen help arrived. - - When the first excitement was over, I saw the captain take Mr. Andrews one side, and heard words which I could not make out, but his voice seemed choked with emotion, and .they stood grasping each .other's hands for some time, as if their whole souls were in the act. .A bond of brotherhood was established between them which was -only broken at the close . of their lives.' . We were so fortunate as to find and secure the whale the next day, and in the happy; feeling consequent upon onr good luck, -the perils of our adventures were soon lost sight of; but upon Captain Gibbs the lesson of that fearful night was not lost. . - - - . A BLACK HILLS ROMANCE. A BLACK HILLS ROMANCE. Adventure of one of Gen. Cook's Scouts —Rescuing a Prisoner and Finding a Wife. Old Jimmy . Kannon is the hero of a ro mance. A real, complete, natural ro mance," one that has never been in print. The old man loves to tell it, and the main details- have been fully corroborated by others. rHis romance is as follbws: A few years ago Jimmy was loitering about Fort Laramie, receiving his five dollars per day as government scout and interpeter. One evening the post-was startled by the report that an emigrant train had been massacred about two miles and a half from the fort. Worse than all, a white woman, a Miss Mary Brand, had been carried off by the Sioux. Kannon volunteered as a guide for a company of cavalry. At dark the cavalry halted for the night in a ravine about ten miles northwest of Ft. Laramie, on the Rawhide trail. All the white men in. the train on the Platte had been massa cred, and no one had been left to teil the story except an Irishman, who died soon after being found.' - He had been fishing with Miss Brand, some distance from the main camp, when the Indian attack was made. From him Kannon learned enough to satisfy him that the Sioux had goue over the Kawhido Uiver. There he re solved to go alone and ahead of the soldiers, and if possible, effect a rescue. He reached the Indian camp about midnight, and se cured his pony to a bush In the valle, and crawled into the Indian camp. His long residence with the Indians taught him where to look for the captive. He was soon lying flat on his belly direotly in the rear of the lodge containing Miss Brand. He found one old squaw sitting in front of lodge bumming a doleful dirge, and on raising the edge of the tepee or iougo, he discovered ANOTHER OLD HaO seated near a small fire, feeding a feeble flame with straws. He also saw the cap tive white woman lying with her bead to i ! : the outside of the topee, less than two feet away. He wispered words of caution and cheer to Miss Brand, who started up in alarm. This startled both the squaws, and the one on the outside walked round to the rear of the lodge, where she met a sudden. a silent death at the hands of the old scout. The other squaw, suspecting some thing wrong, gave the alarm. Uuick flash, Kannon raised up the edge of the louge and drew out the captive, and throw ing her upon his shoulders, made a dash out into the darkness. The camp was soon in an nrroar. But Kannon made his es cape with his horse, although an arrow had pierced his body through, lie took course eastward down the Rawhide, while tne Indians started toward Fort Laramie, which was due southward from their finding himself getting weaker from the loss of blood, Kannon drew forth the arrow, which had passed through his bodv and projected out in front, and filled his buckskin shirt around the wounds with wet mud, and then continued his flieht At daylight he found himself on the head of Cottonwood creek, about twelve miles from Laramie.

Tilden was sit tin in his room, smilin, surrounded by those eminent Reformers, John Morrissev, Boss McLaughlin, Oakey Hall, and sich, when Hendrix entered with his reform backers, wich is me, Henry Clay Dean, Governor Allen, uv Ohio, and sich. My buzm swelled with emoshun ez I looket over the crowd. "Xow" thot I, "the country and the postoflices is safe." Then I wuz immejitly alarmed.

We felt that it wuz impossible for them two great intel lects to come together. We begged uv em to be modrit, to each concede sumthin, and agree upon sum kind uv a letter, wich would pacify the party and keep it together and yoonite it. I made the openin speech.

From the Cleveland Leader. OBITUARY. MISS BETSEY M. COWLES. On the 23th inst., MissBetsevM. Cowles. a prominent and well-known lady of Ash tabula county, died at her residence, in the "old homestead" at "the Center," in Austinburgh, in the sixty-seventh year of ner age, alter nn illness ot one week. In the death of Miss Cowles, the commu nity in which she has so long resided has lost a shining light, a woman who graced alike all social circles, from the most culti vated and well-to-do down to the humblest. and one who has endeavored in her sphere and in her quiet way to elevate the unfor tunate and- down-trodden, Miss Cowles was born in Bristol, Connec ticut, where her father, the Rev. Dr. Giles Hooker Cowles, was pastor of the Congre gational Church. In 1811, while she was still an infant, he accepted a call to the pastorate of the church in Austinburgh, and emigrated to that place with his fam- :i T:..: 1.: 1 i... .t.ii 11 jr, consisting 01 111s wile atiu eight cultu re!!, the journey .being accomplished in thirty days, in a carriage and two wagons. Mr. cowles wasnrst settled pastor in Aus tinburgh, and he erected the first church ornamented with a steeple on the Western .Reserve, 11 not in unio. it was in tne midst of privations incidental to the life of a pioneer that Miss Cowles spent her early days, and it was probably in a great meas ure owing to that circumstance that she was indebted for her remarkably strong mind, the great feeling of independence that was her characteristic, her indomita ble perseverance, and her sympathy for those who were not much endowed with this world's goods. w hen quite yonng, before she was out of her teens, Miss Cowles developed a passion for teaching, and she gratified her taste in that direction by establishing and taking charge of two infant schools, consisting of pupils from four to twelve years of age, one at the "North End" of Austinburgh and the other subsequently in the adjoin ing township of Morgan. She had a re markable faculty for imparting knowledge to little children as well as to those of more mature age, hence her great popu larity and success as a teacher. There are many now living who remember, in spite the lapse of nearly half a century, the in fant schools they attended and the teach ings of "Aunt Betsey" by which endear ing name she was subsequently universally called by her pupils and friends when she inculcated in ner peculiar and tnorougn manner the doctrine of Christian morals and of our duty to all classes of our fellow- men. Subsequently she prepared herself for the higher walks of teaching by gradu ating at Oberlin some forty years ago, since then she has had charge 01 a number of the npper grade of schools, among them the young ladies department at urand River Institute, the Lnion School at Can ton, Ohio, and the Seminary at Delhi, .New York. During her career as a teacher, ending about twenty years ago, she showed herself to be the same kindly and genial instructress to all under her charge, and literally made herself the companion of her pupils; consequently she was locked up to more as a mother or an aunt, and it was this amiable trait in her character that caused her to be called.by the loving name of "Aunt Betsey. she was a blessed and good woman, as was truly shown by her work in the cause of religion, the poor and helpless, the down-trodden slave, of the gallant sick and wounded during the war of the Rebel lion, and in the cause of education. It will be hard for all who knew "Aunt Bet sey" to realize that her noble form, com manding presence and kindly and intellec tual face have passed away irom mis world forever only, however to enter "that land of pure delight." After hav ing suffered intense agony from the cruel disease with which she was afflicted, she calmly and imperceptibly gave up her spir it, surrounded by her loving and weeping friends, in the midst of the prayer which her pastor was offering in her behalf. The last work Miss Cowles was engaged ... in,' previous to her death, was aiding in the building of the new Congregational hurch in Austinburg. It was mainly through her exertions that that struc- ure was erected, and at the time of her death it was finished with the exception of lieing painted, and it was the desire of all her friends that the funeral services be held in "the new church." and thus ap preciate the work she had done by having the first service in it held over her remains, sad though it be. . The funeral took place in the afternoon of the 27th. The church was filled by those who loved "Aunt Bet- and mourned her departure as though e was a member of their household. The exercises were opened by the singing of a solemn chant by the choir, artcr which a prayer was offered and a short and appro priate discourse was delivered by the Rev. r. Cutting, the present pastor of the hurch. He was followed by the Rev. S. Streetor of Saybrook, who was the former pastor of the church at Austiuburg and who had been intimately acquainted with the deceased for over a third or a cen tury. He delivered a most affecting dis course, eulogizing the character of Miss Cowles. At times he was so affected as al most to choke his utterances. He alluded feelingly to the work accomplished by her in the anti-slavery cause, at a time when it was considered to be a reproach to be en gaged in such a work. He showed the be nevolence of her nature and of her con stantly performing acts of kindness. The reverend speaker dilated in an eloquent manner on the good influeuce wielded by Miss Cowles, which "was felt from the At lantic to the Pacific, wherever her pupils had settled." Never was there a more truthful, a more appropriate and a more deserving eulogy delivered on the charac ter of a woman than tha affecting And beautiful discourse delivered over the re mains of Betsy M. Cowles, by her former beloved pasto'i and friend. Quoting the language of a dear friend ot hers, "No bet ter woman ever lived 1 No whiter or purer spirit ever entered the abode of souls. After the funeral services were over, the remains were interred in the Pioneer ceine try at the Centre, in the midst of five gener ations of her kindred whom she had lovod and who had loved her. Miss Cowles was a sister of of the late Dr. E. W. Cowles; of this city, and an aunt of Mr. Alfred Cowles. of the Chicago JViAune, of Judge Samuel Cowles, of Son rancisco, and of Mr. Edwin Cowles, of this city. as of On rax up one A Ma sty a to Science.

Burlington Sattkeye. WAYNE. Eds. Tel: Passing in review over Gar field's defeat of Humphrey Marshall, in Kentucky, we wish to notice his keen dis cernment and worth at the battle of Chick amauga, to which our Ohio soldiers refer with so much interest. ' On the Federal right there was great confusion, and the trains had been pushed back along the road, mingled with disor ganized troops. General Rosecrans and Garfield, his chief of staff, left the field together, as a retreat from the field seemed certain, as no array of battle was to be seen. At Rossville firing was heard in the direction of the position of General Thomas. Rosecrans had yielded to the idea that the Army was beaten and that the firing indi cated disorganization. Garfield, who doubtless hao a more correct ear, thought it was the firing of men who were holding their ground, and asked permission to go to General Thomas. This was given, and Rosecrans went to Chattanooga, and tele graphed to Washington that his army was beaten. General Garfield reached General Thomas about four o'clock in the afternoon, bringing him the first official news of the disaster upon the right of the Union army. He bad left General Rosecrans at the time of tfeedisaster, and as he returned he found the riilgejast ill the rear of the point where the- right had been oC2?ei), held by Thomas' line. Here alone, of all thTariuf which then held the field, he had witnessed the advance of Hood's irresistable columns. and the wreck of a line of battle, and was permitted to witness the spectacle of Lon?- street's repulse. In the report of General Thomas J. Wood we find the following: "I do not think that history affords an instance of a more splendid resistance than that made by Barker's and a portion of B.u ell's brigade, from 1 p. m. on the 20th, to nightfall. As part of the contest was wit nessed by that able and distinguished com mander, Major General Thomas. The men saw that they were battling jinder the eve of a gteat chieftain, and their courage and resolution received fresh inspiration. At a most oportune moment Gen.- Granger ap peared upon the field with two brigades of troops from the division of Gen. Steedman. It affords me much pleasure to signalize the presence with my command for a length of time during the afternoon during the pe riod of the hottest fighting of another dis tinguished officer, Brig. Gen. Garfield, chief of staff. After the disastrous event of the right. Gen. Garfield made his way back to the battle field, showing thereby that the road was open to all who might choose to follow it where duty called, and came to where my command was engaged. The brigade that made so determined a resist ance on the crest of the narrow ridge dur ing all that long September afternoon had been commanded by Gen. Garfield when he belonged to my division.

A very interesting paper on the op erations of Building Associations in Philadelphia, read at the meeting of the American Social Science Associ ation last, week, at the ball of the College of Physicians and Surgeons, by Mr. Joseph J.
