A GUEST AT MIDNIGHT. BY JK0. P. LACR0IX. 111 . f II i On the third of Novembor, 1S43, my father, mother and two aisterg paid their 6 nn tia visit to the mansion of my mater nal grandfather who resided about ten miles from the river, in that romnntio hill region reaehiug along the entire southern border of the Stu'e of Ohio, I, alone, re mained at home, and as I alwayihad n childish diend of s olitude and darkness, I expected to pass a very dreary day and night, especially it" the lattersliould prove dark and stoimy, which tbe heavy masses of clouds, lying like distant mountains on the western horizon now seemed to threat en. My only wuy of keepins this pain ful dread from making mo wretched was to become so deeply engaged in reading, as to fofktet my lonoly condition. 1 there fore onened the family library and took down an old volume which proved to bo the "Faerie Queen." Alt the afternoon of that day, I sat at my chamber win dow intensely interested in the antique style and chivalrio creations of the good Spenser only withdrawing my attention B.B chilliness prompted me to build up tbe dying fire, or as a heavier gust ot wind, swinging to and fro the shutters, made me feel but too keenly the wild and frightful bight, whiob. was fast approaching. It vaa in my father's arm chair that I was) readicg; but my miud at last grew tired, and, all at once seemed to cease dwelling on the stories of Spenser and to pass tlni' t lories of wild adventures such aa I o)n- not to this day think of without trembling. At ont time i tnougnt i leu iron a motirt tain eras into a gorge entirely filled with drifting snow. Through this snow I sank down down! it seemed I never should cease, Again I soemed to have been caught up by a huge vulture. Bat it hav lug been attacked ty anomer leathered monBter, as she Was about to devour me, I escaped during the contest. Lastly I thought that a furious wind had arisen, prostating the old oaks of the forest and shaking the hotse to its very foundations. Suddenly a fearlul Wast came and I iho't it was fulling in ruins upon my head. The momeut I found myself awake, and standing beside my chair, t could scarce ly persuade mysolf that I had ouly dream ed. bay had gone and night come; the bright fire by which I had eat, had died out fn a mass of embers, : and the. wind like aq angry cpirU watt howling without By the light of a taper, I saw the book, I had read, lying beside the chair. Its fall i.i which had roused me from slumber. Once more I heaped on the luel, drew my chair to the fire and resumed reading by a tuper. Sleep however, soon came over me, and tilled my mind with wild and tear ful visions. Hideous beings peopled the nir fcbout me now smiling on me with ghastly deformed faces, now flashing their angty eyes an J- gnashing their tor rib !e teeth almost in my fare. Such sleep could not last long; and then the lonely house seemed beseiged by savage hob goblins; some tugging at tho windows and others rqpp'ng with furious blows against t'ho door. I again found myself awake, and by my hair. The Ore was low, and the taper but a mere point of flame, throwing a chill ing gloom over the dark chamber, for a moment all was still without, save the moMiinpr ol the night wind. It was but a moment oh! who can iiiiae thoindescri' bitble horror, tho hoart-sickening teiror. which chilled my son! on hearing again a loud p! rap! at my door. Now, indeed it was no dream wide awake I Blood, as the vans full upon my ticmblinsr door. For a momet.t 1 stood utterly unable to move a muscle: still, oh, deadly still, ?m iiiv heart! had a sister fallen into the flames, I could not have reached a rcscu- ing arm. fclowiy as the rapping ceasca, 1 regained my self-control. Rip! rap! how ever, soon came agvn, followed by a hu man voice asking admittance. 1 called aloud lest I should be mistaken, and again a voice was returned. I now summoned resolution and, though with much mis giving, approached the door. I hoped anl tried to believe that some friend had caller): et it was with the most painful dread that I threw open the doer. A dark fty-m ,tod before me, so deformed, so haggard, that hid he not at thi moment uttered a mild voice, I shou'd certainly have thought liim A spirit fiom another world, and c1otcd the door in terror. As it was, ventured to invite him in, and cave him a seal beside my feeble fire. I soon discovered that he was a mendicant, and at his request, placed before him a cold lunch. Hitherto, I had taken but casual glan ces at him by the flickering taper, but now I had rebuilt the fire and trimmed the ta per, and, as ho ate the lunch, the bright illumination pf the chamber enabled mo carefully to survey the mysterious stran cer. Now I felt suie, had I at first seen him clearly I should not have taken him for one of my own species. So pallid a counientMice, s sunken an eye, and so pHliiod a liame I had not before seen. tiis head was bald, save a few silver hairs. His face and chin were covered wilh a long uncombed b?arJ hanging in kooison his t are breast, tl is right leg Imd been ampntatedabovo the kne. His left fore arm he had lost a hook beinz fastened ; to the arm at the elbow, on which he car ! ii,id a budget; and thorn were but two I fingers and a thumb entire, on the right. He walked by means 31 a cruicn. A fieri boeanio fully assured of the hu manity of my guest, I confess I was not a little pleased in the hopethnt bin conver sation, or at least his presence might ban ish tl.at painful 'gloom which I always experienced in a stormy night when alone, When lid had bnished eating lie gianceu to'vnrd me and asked il I were alone in the houso. and learning that I was, he re plied that it was not wonderful I had hes itated to admit him. He informed me that he rapped once, and hearing a noise ceased a moment, and then rapped again. Here, then, in his first rapping which a woke me, is the explanation cf my dream ofahouse falling upon me. I farther I".rn6d that he was an Englishman of cood familv. that he hid recieved a One education at Oxford, that for bad, disso lato counduct he had bci-n disinherited and driven from homo, and' that as a last resort he shipped as a common sailor with the design ot quitting the land iorever.- Ue now drew liisohaii- to t no lire and pia cms Ins naked toot on tne warm nearm, hogan a narration of his history, such as 1 never till then had heard, ana sucn as i never desire to hear again. j After many toilsome y6ars of seafaring life in the South Paoiflo Sea, he had ar rived at New York. During his delay of two Weeks he visited Ike Bo thol -preaching and becamoa beliover and convert to Christianity, and ever since that time had tried in his own worda.to "mako the New Testament the cuide of his Iffe." Here he took from his budget and showed me a woll-thumbed bible a gift from the minister who had baptized him. As he spoke of these, things and. his early way thus i.OjT'W "You have not failed to observe my grey locks and my mutilated body. Per haps you regard me as an old man. If so you are mistaken.

"For four years after leaving New York I was employed on an East India Packet plying between Bombay and the Red Sea. Becoming wearied of this monotonous and I was towed, as I theuiht. bv the rope I now thought it might be a rope floating behind either flonw .trane vns-I,ot from some of tbo life-boats. I therefore sup posed, by climbing up the rope, I might reach the boat, and be taken in, I had passed but a few yards of the rope through my hands, however, till I found my mis- course, 1 hired on a Dutch Merchantman 'take. The rope I held proved to be a'. but owing to continued sickness it was deemed improper for me to rontinue oc the sen. I therefore disembarked at Bata via and was put in the caie of an estima ble Dutch family where I soon so far re covered as to think of going again to sea. 1 tlieretore sought a berth designing to come to America by way of the Cape of Good Hope and Liverpool but could nnd no good cpening indeed there was but one vessel in port which would start to burope for some months, and she having been used many years in the fisheries of the South Pacific was the morest bulk, en tirely unseaworthy. Her commander, however, becoming tired of the sea, had determined to return to Amsterdam and retire from business. He was confident in the fitness of the Liebline her namo for another voyage and had resolved once more to trust his treasure and family to her keeping on the ocean wave. I saw that it was perilous to embark yet there was no alternative either 1 must go with her or remain in the sultry climate of Ja va. I chose to embark and trust lite to God and the Liebling. Fair was tho morning and kind thega'o as losing of Butavia, we turned our bark to the wide Indian Ocean. Smoothly at first we passed but as we left '.1.6 Islai.d and got fairly to sea it was wilh no little apprehension that we heard the timbers of iheship groaning and creaking as sue rose and sunk amjng the long and increa sing waves. Indoed when wo reflected that we had more than tout inonsanu rnues to traverse ere wo should reach the Cape, we could not avoid likening the hoarse, deep groans issuing from the hold of out ship, to tne cempiaints oi a uropsioa oiu man on the approach oi nchinyana windy winter. Tedious days and weeks passed by, and as they passed, the creaking and tiembling and leaking of the Liebling in- i , ' i . 11. J !.!!. I creasea wntie ino oes roimu iiigiiar&iiu we got farther from land. Some of the pumps hid been .worked from the first, but now when many of the seamen were sick we had to work every pump day and night. Thus days of anxiety were passed and we were vet far from the Cape. Moat of the crew had become unfit for service and it swiftly spsda by me as lwts drawn along progress. In I8l)2, Ohio took her pogi Hon as an lmiependeut Commonwealth a mong the sisterhood ofStucs, and in a little more than bfty years, she has risen to be i lie second great powerin the Union, and wields a national and political influ ence superior to all the btaiei except iew York.' Her reioul?ea ut tnasjiL ffcua- perity and greatness, her attention to schools and intellectual culture, lu-r pro gress in social civilization and enjoyments, and her Christian means of culture, have carried her forward in the race of im provement and greatness, until she has become the pride of her own citizens, and the admiration of surrounding States and nations. We doubt whelhor, on the fce of the globe, there are a more independ ent, prosperous nnd happy people thai those who dwell in the great State of Ohio. They have all they need, in material, ed ucations! and Christian means, to make them contented and piospurom. and these they have, in a good measure, appreciated and developed. The late Report of Mr. Mansfield, the State Commissioner of Statiniies, presents a very full and suggestive expu.-e of the material, educational and Christian con dition of Ohio, during the p,isl year. It is a very interesting and instructive Slate document, and worthy of being univers ally read, and preserved for lutme refer- lachcd to a large empty wine-caBk, nnd the wind beating ou this was the power which towed me through ihc water. I was now fearfully chilled, and this new disap pointment threw mo into utter despair. There was one hope. I knew that I could not be fur from the cost, and provided the wind blew on, and did not dask me to pieces on the rocks, I might yet be saved. It now must have been near day light. The sky Was mddv in the north east, the sea was more calm, and s I arose on abillow-ctest,! thought I described land. But it was far distint. llouis long hours, pa-sed ere the land came near. The sun hid nearly reached the west ere I was released from tho fear of destruction on the coast.

CJNCLCDED NEXT WXEK.J Tom Corwlu oc the Homestead Dill. We extract tha following instructive paragraph from a late speech ol Mr. Cor win iu Philadelphia: Now let us see what the Democracy North and South would have us do. 'Oh!' they say, ''the doctrine of the Constitu tion is (settled; slaverv is now in every territory of the United States;" that is, as tho lawyers would say, it is there, "Dy intendment of law;" it iseootnliii e in fact, , a-ffosi occurring every month In the year ful and accurate collector of facts in sci ence, history and statistics, and as an of ficer of Ohio, he does his work, con umore, with a heartfelt enthusiasm. He has l6en a citizen of Ohio for neaily fifty year, and has watched her progress with the eye of a philosopher, and with a filial pride. Kia rcpoits, therefore, are able and reliable. His third annual exhibit of ilie statis tics of Ohio, is very full and fa'islantory. He groups together the facts relative to Climatology, whic h is intimately connect ed with the wealth and prosperity of the Slate. The most remarkable ftct is the number and severitv of the frosts ofl859; ! .1 . I .1.. I......l was ev oeus irous uro iwkisiu ,.uuiiitu . - .,, , , ance of the Captain that he'despairod of 7- thtS9 irnh hie life, treasure and family. You shall ? Ih.tu their ob; Boon see how sadly his forebodings were realized. At 6 o'clock P. M., August 13th, our captniu announced that we were about fif ty n ilea East ol Cape St. Mary, Mada gascar, that a storm was threa.cned and lhatthe passengers need not retire. As he ppoko the laHtj words his voice fultered and we saw the saddening anxiety which disturbed his bofioin. For some days the ship hud become more and more uman ageable and her bold was half full of wa ter; and all tho pumps could not gain on it. Wild was the wind and black the olouds which rose and threatened us from the South East. At 1 1 o'clock the sea was fearfully routrh and tho wAter fuel gaining on the pumps. It was cluaruow that we should siuk; tho gale hurrying us toward tbe shore, the ship could not tack from the Island, and the captain had lost all hope and ceased to give orders, All on board was contusion aud despair; yet, scarce a voice was heard. The cap tain with one or two seamen were mnxing ready the beats, four in number, but it was bvident that such boats could not hold out on such a sea; and if they oould, it would be impossible to leave the linking wreck without being capsized by the des pairing seamen who would leap aboard. I therefore sought no plaoe in tbe boats but bound on my life-preserver and await ed the event. One by one the boats were lowered, and by good luck all but the one next to tho Inat got ont without capsizing, The captain and family left in the second They all instantly disappeared in tbe black night Hi, cb adued new noriur to tne scene. I foT they all perished save tbe last boat which will be beard ot hereafter. One or two huge seas now rolled over the sinking hulk, washing the dozen des pairing sailors and myself Over the keel and into the vaei deep. I had bo long contemplated this last scene that I had a waited it with coolness. Yet, as I felt the cool waves swallow me up and bear me and ii will not go there. Out Democratic people all propose lo vote against this Homestead bill. Why? Because their Southern leaders tell them they must do it. "If you give a quarter section ol lmd to (lie poor man and his young wife, thou sands of such couples thioughout the country will flock to those territories, and they will volo slavery out have the Douglas dooirine of squatter sovereignty, or the Drcd Scott doctiine, I that whilo the territory continues in a terti torial conditi jn you cannot exclude slave- ater drive action to tbe Homestead bill Let us look nt tho two stales of society on the one siJe, tlvat whijh the Demo cratic party would inaugurate in our fice territory, and on the other that wincn the lluuuh heas nronoso to establish. J lie Southern man does net want a quarter section of land, becvise it is not enough fur his purpose. He wants about two thousand acres, on whlch' to work l.is tor or twenty uegroes; and if ho cannot obtain that ho will not go to those territories. Now, take twelve young men and twelve young women, married yesterday, let eaidi couple have their one' hundred and sixty acres, and you have about two thousand acres on which twelve families me grow- inr? nn under these Christian institutions of ours. Every one of the boys will in lime ba a vnter. to rule vou and mc. Let one man from the bonth take his two thousand acres, lo cultivate it with his twenty-five or thiity regrocs, and what have you thercr ion havo one white familv with two or three children you have alsj u negro family of fifty or sixty growing up around you. Thero is no e-chool house; none is wanted, lor tney do not allow negroes to go lo school. A foreign young woman is imported, frcm Vermont, perhaps, to ttach the young la dies of the family nuch lilorature aa may te thought desirable. After a whilo the two thousand hcrcs are covered over with negro slaves. But let the Homestead bill go into operation, and on tho3e two thou sand acres vou have twcilve families. In in many pai ts of the S.atc, the most severe of which, as nttecting the crops, occur ring on the morning of the 6th of June. The Report states that Ohio has 25,- 000,000 of acres of land, ot which, in 1051), 10,610,000 acres were under cu'li vaiion, proiliioir.g an average grain crop of the last three vmre of 225:764.741 Whether we I buishi Is, besides the hay crop, which, in 185S, was 1,806,441 tone. The population, January 1850, the Com missioner estimates at juat 2,500.000, giving the annual increase at 50,1)00. The number of new etructuies erected during tho year, is about 9,200, includ ing harna, &e. The average ea'e of lands are M. 000 acres per county, nt an aver age of $21 per acre, which would ba equal to selling tl.c entire area of the Slate in every twelve years. The amount of the segregate valuation of the property in 1853 was ?f!4ft)nn9,C08 ol laxalion culabU importance for tbe regulation of their conduct, that men should under stand the science of life, physical, mental, and social, and that they ehould under stand all othet tcrcBce at a Lev to tbe sconce oi me. And yet tho knowledge which it of such trauaft nd&vl vaitM it thalwiib,, to our age of boasted education, rec eived the leist ait-nt on. While this which we cull civilization could never hare arisen had it not b-cn for science; ncieoce forms scarcely an appreciable rlenuht in what men consider civilized training1. Though to the progresa of science we owe it, the millions find support where once there was fond only for thousands; yei of thetra mill one, but a few thousands pay any re spect to that whh'h has made ih'eir exiat- ence possible. 1 hough this increasing knowledge of the proprietUa and relation of things has not only enabled wandering tribes to grow into populous natn, but has given to the countless members of those populous nations,comforts und pleas ures which their few naked anceHors nev r even conceived, or coull hae believ ed; yet is this kind of knowl.dge only re ceiving a grudging recognition in our highest educational insliiu'.iona.
