Ttetea GwtL ' Did thoy really Htop you, knowing y our erruiHi ! lea, mat tliey iliil, mistress. As 1 was going by tliu tavern, a mile or two up tho road yonder, three or four of them torriiied Yorkers came out. ttnd toltl mo 1 couldn't go for tho doctor, nor nowhere else, without a pass from ono of their committee. So had to post buck more than half wav, to bquire Asheraft's, ttnd there had to bo questioned a long while before ho would givo mo uny pass at all. And then again, when I got to tho doctor's, he said ho wanted a pass, too ; for ho darsen't go to see u Whig woman with out one, which 1 must go and get him from Squire Evans, another committee man. Well, finding thoro was no other way to get him started, I wcnt.feeling all the timo just between crying and fighting. And as soon as I got the bit of paper into tho doctor's hands, I put for home, leaving him fixing to como horseback, which is the reason of my getting here first. " "These, are, indeed dreadful times, "sighed tho widow. "But thoy cannot always remain; for, though God limy chastise us a while for our sins. yet tho cords of the oppressors will surely bo broken. " "I'd rather see their necks broken," responded Bart, dryly. "When we left Westminster, 1 thought, as much as could be, the tories weroall used up; but I find 'em down hero thicker than ever now, and as saucy ana spiteful as a v.est of yellow jackets that, like them, have been routed in one place and got fixed in another. Blast their pictures,how I hate 'em !" "That is not right, Barty. You I should love your enemies Kviljwishes. I towards those who injure us, are I both Tricked and foolish." "I don't understand, mistress." I ''Whv. Tlm-tv. tn love tu tn lie liiinnl'. asfaras circumstances will permit; and to hate is but to feel disquieted and miserable. So when wo keep the command to love our enemies, we ob tain a reward which often outbalances the evil they inflict on us, or, at least enables us the better to bear it; while on tho contrary when wo hate those who injure us, we receive a double i evil the wrong they inflict, and the I unhappiness created by tho exorcise, of our revengeful passions. Uul you ever think of that, Bart?" 'So, ilium; Harrv talks kinder that ! way, sometimes ; but I can't under ! stand it. no how." I "With vour means of moral instruc tion, perhaps it: is not surprising that vou should not; so I will drop tho subject, aud ask you if you heard any thing of Harry, whilo you were gone. " 'No, mistress; didn't see nobody that knew he was gone." "O. when will he return? He has now been gone two long, long days; but I must not repine." "Why, mistress, I kinder guess he'll be along to-night, unless so be he's mot with considerable bother to get tho money or something. He must be here afore to-morrow afternoon, when tho sale is, you know." "Yes, I knew the sale was delayed till town meeting day, which is to morrow, I believe; though for what reason they put it off I never heard. Harrv felt so bitter about tho affair, that I thought I would not disturb his feelings bv making any allusions to the subject. But thero appeared to be (something about it that 1 didn't un derstand. Why didn't the sale tune place last week," as first appointed?" "For as good a reason as ever a tory oflicer had for doing anything or not doing anything, may be, I should say in the world," replied Bart, with a knowing look. "What was it?" "Why, when the day come, he couldn't find any cattle to soil." "What had become of them?" "Well, mistress, I don't know how much it is best to Fay about that, con sidering. But I shouldn't be sur prised," continued the speaker, while a sly rougish expression stole over his usually grave, impenetrable counte nance, that is, not much suprised, if it turned out that two or three of Harry's friends got the cattle out of tho bam where they were keeping, one dark night.aod drive 'cm off into tho woods, near the top of Governor's mountain, and then uaoKcu up nay enough to keep 'em a spell; while the eompauv toon turns, ior a mn uv in going a hunting over the mountain, t .nmn rniiiid. once in a while, t fi,w nnrl see to tho crcters, for which old Bug-Horn paid id milk, on tho spot. Now, mind, I haven t said X knew this was so, but was only kinder guessing at it : for all that's really known about it that is, out loud-ie, that Fitch and his men found the cat tle up there; and tho way they found them was by following up tho trail .An l,v thn hav straws that somcono, after a while, grew careless enough to ..fto. frnm his bncK load along the BVUll'. ...- "Did my son have any hand in this affair?" asked the widow, anxious y. "No, mistress; Harry is so kinder notional about some things, that we thought that is, I guess somo thought :t l'i lir.nt tn sav anything to him about the plan till'his cattle were fairlv saved." "I am glad to hear it. I should rather see him deprived of his last nennv than do a questionable act. We should never do wrong because others have done wrong to us." ti. ; n differ between your f see. mistrcFS. If they did wrong in getting a ay Harry's cattle so, as every body knows thev did, then the tother of that-getting them back again-must be right But you needn't tell any body what I've said, mistress: for they might, nerhaps, have Bill Tiper and inc up, and trv to make burglary out of it-or simony. I n't know but the taw ?okB would call it-the break.ng into L log-barn. But. hush! Somebody s coming. It is the doctor. Doctor Soper, who now entered, was a small, pug nosed, chubby man , of ostentatious manners, and high pre ens ons to skill and knowledge in his Profession; though, in fact, he was but a quack, and of that most danger ous class, too, who dip into books rXr to acquire learned terms than to studv principles, and who. consequent " 8 often as otherwise are found ''doctoring to a name.

"Indeed, madam! Woll,now for tho diagnosis of your disoase. I pride myself on diagnostics. lour wrist, madam, if you nlcase, "said tho doc tor, proceeding; to feel the pulse of his patient, with an air intended for a very professional one, "Tense fro quent this pulse of yours, madam; showinu; meat irritability.

Pretty much mado up my mind about your complaint coming along madam, having learned from your lad here something of your troubles and fright on losing your homo. And was right. It is netiralgy decidedly a nouralgy. " "What is that,doctor?" "Always happy to explaiu, madam, so as to bring my meaning within tho comprehension of common minds. Nouralgy, madam, is derangement of tho nerves. Your diseaso precisely." "Why I am not at all nervous sir," responded the patient looking up in surprise. "You may not think so. madam. Few do in our case." "And then doctor I have an intonso iuward fever," persisted tho other, and lungs seem much affected." "Nervous, fever, madam," returned the doctor, too wise to bo instructed, and lungs sympathetically affected that's all. Quiet and strengthen the nerves, and all will be right in a short timo. I shall prescribo Katlix Khei, in small doses, assafuotida, quinine, and brand bitters of my own preparing. These, with nourishing food, as soon as you can bear it, will speedily restore you, madam. Having dealt out tho prescriueu medicines, calculated rather to in crease than check the poor woman's nialudy, which was inflammation of tho lungs, tho self satisfied doctor, swelling with his own importance, departed, leaving his patient now to contend with two evils, instead of one a dan gerous disease, and the more danger ous effects of a iiuack's prescription. What timo is it now Barty?" asked the invalid with a deep sigh as she awoke from a troubled slumber into which she had fallen after tho doctor's departure. , "Whew, don't know exactlv. mis tress," answered Bart rousing himself i from the dreamy abstraction in which ho had been indiilging,us lie sat looking into tho decaying fire "don't know, exactly; but it has got a considerable piece into tho night. About nine o'clock, cuess; mav bo nioro. " "Nino o'clock at night, and Harry j not vet returned!" sighed tho invalid. I "Well, well, I will complain no more." j Can I do anything lor you, uns tress?" asked her untutored attend ant, touched at the sad and despondent one of tho other. "You may bring me in a pitcher of fresh, cold water, with some ice in it, if you will. Barty, "replied tho former. "It seems to me as if this inward heat was consuming my vitals, sinco I took the doctor's medicines." The youth, with noiseless step, then disappeared wtih his pitcher, and, in a few moments, returned with it filled with water and several pieces of clear, pure ice, which were heard dashing against its sides. "How grateful!" said the sick woman, as she took from her lips sho wooden cup which had been filled aud handed her by hor attondant, and from which she had eagerly drained nearly a pint of the cooling beverage at a singlo draught. "There, now, set the pitcher on tho table yonder, and raise tho largest piece of ice up in sight, so, as 1 lie here, I can look at it. The mere sight of it seems to do me good. " Another dreary hour rolled away in silence, which wus broken only by the restless motions and occasional sup pressed groans of the invalid within, and the wailing of tho winds and the pattering of the rain against the win dows without, when a slow, heavy step was heard coming up to the house. "That is he -that is his stop!" faintly exclaimed the sick woman, partially raising herself in bed, and gazing eagerly towards the dour: while her pain-contracted features were, for the moment, smoothed by the smilo of affection aud pleasure that now broke over them, like the faint electric il lumining of a weeping cloud. Th quick ears of flic afflicted moth er hud not deceived hor. The next instant Harry Woodburn entered the room, and, with a gloomy, abstracted air, proceeded to divest himself of his wet coat and muddy boots, without uttering a word, or bestowing any thing more than a casual glance to wards the bed, to which he supposed his mother had just retired, as was usual with her. about this hour, and not suspecting that she was more in disposed than when he left her. But as ho now turned and approached tho fire, his eyes fell, for tho first time, on her haggard features when, stopping short, with a look of surprise and lively concern, ho exclaimed, "Mother! are you worse, mother?" "Yes. Harry, 1 am very, very sick; and O, how glad I am that you are como. " For several moments he said nothing, but stood gazing at her with the dis tressed and stupefied air of one strug gling to shut out painful apprehensions. At length, however, he roused himself, and made a few hasty inquiries relatio to her disorder and what had been done for her; and, having been in formed of all that had occurred in his absence, and now appearing fully to comprehend the the danger of her situation, he sat down by her bedside, when his lip soon began to quiver, and his strong bosom heave with tumul tuous emotions, while bitter tears THE TUPNJF LIFE.

" Do not do not be so distressed, j my son," said the mother, deeply ' touched at this exhibition of feeling, accompanied as it was with such a proof of filial affection in her idolized sou, and anxious to soothe and divert his mind. "1 shall recover, if God wills it. Let us, then, bow in resigna tion to his dispensations, and n'jt dis turb our feelings with unavailing re grets. Come, my tlear son, cheer up and tell me how" you have succeeded in the object of your journey." "No success" he replied gloomily. "No: I have been running from town to town since yesterday morning and havo not been able to obtain t single dollar. So the cattle must go to satisfy the stolen judgment of that insatiable Peters. " At this mmoent tho conver sation was arrested by u low rap ut tho door when after the customary walk in had been pronounced by Woodburn tho door was gently opened and a tall robust young man with a frank open eountcnauco hesitating,1' entered. "Good evening folks" he said in a suppressed tone. "I didn't exactly know what todo about calling to-night on account of disturbing your mother, Harrv; but wishing to know whether you had got home and hear the news if you had, I thought I would venture to rap. What is going on up country?" "Nothing verv new I believe Mr. Piper." "Well what luck about the money, Harry?" "Nont none whatever. " "I am sorry for that. No, 1 won't lie, now: 1 am not sorry, Harry; and 1 will tell you why, hereafter. All I wanted to "know to night was, whether you had got the wherewith to redeem the cattle, to-morrow being the last chance fur doing it, you know." "Yes, I was aware of it, friend Piper: and many thanks for the in terest you take in my misfortunes. But I cannot redeem the stock. It must go: nothing more can be done to save it. "Well, I don't quite that, Harry. 1 don't standing by. and seeing property snatched away such smuggled rateis. turn as it may, the subject brings to mind a certain circumstance, which I will name, after first asking a ques tion ; and that is. whether Peters has not been huug?" "Peters hung? Why. no: the pris oners are not to be tried till the new court we havo been appointing at West minster holds its first session, some weeks hence. But why do you ask so strange a question?" "Well, Harry, by way of answer, I will teli you the circumstance I allud ed to, which was this: Last night, as I was crossing about town drumming up friends to attend the meeting to morrow, seeing wo are expecting a hard tussle. I met a man that I could have sworn was John Peters, if I had not known tho fellow was close in Northampton jail ; and as it was, I could swear it was his exact shape and appearance. Well, knowing it could not be him bodily.it soon struck me that they had been hanging off a parcel of them there, Peters among the rest, and that this was his ghost, kinder hovering about here to see if his affairs were fixed up to his lik ing." "Your notion of a ghost, Piper, if you are serious about it, is all non sense," said Woodburn, who had lis tened with lively interest to the singu lar story of tho other. "Yes, that is nonsense; but it has brought to mind a rumor which reached Brattleborough yesterday, that all the prisoners at Northampton had been liberated by habeas corpus from the chief justice of New York, and were now at large. Although this was not credited, yet. if you saw Peters here last night, as I begin to fear, the story must have been true. And he appears here, at this time for the double purpose of Reeing. as you said, whether his orders have been carried into execution, and of being present to use his corrupting influence at town meeting to-morrow. " would bo the means, we thought, of I saving your property, and ut the muun I time, bo a plagtiey sight more lawful than any authority they havo for sell : ing them. But now there's no saving how it will go. I expect hot work thero to-morrow ; anil that minds me to ask if you heard whether help from the towns up the river is coming down to join us on the occasion?" "Yes, Tom Dunning caiue down with me, and ho informed mo that Beveral others were on the way." "Good. Tom himself, in mutter of managing, will be almost a mutch for 1 'otcrs, whether ghost or iio ghost. But where is he?" "Ha stopped back at the huberty Pole tavern. " "All happens right, then. I urn bound thero myself. We ure going to hold a littlo meeting at the Polo, after folks are to bed, to mako up our plans and arrangements for to-morrow. You can't go, I suppose. " "No, I must not think of it " "But you will bo at town meeting to-morrow?" ' yuito uncertain. In the first place, I ought not to leave my sick mother: and in the next, my feelings are in such a stato of bitterness, that I dare hurdly trust myself in such u scone, lest I should " do that which would cost me months of painful re gret. No, Piper, in mercy to a des perate man, let mo keep away. But here is Bart to go, if ho choose, both to-night and to-morrow." "Bart is agreeable to that, if Harry and mistress don't want him." said tho person just named, rousing up from the long-silent reverie in which he had been sitting before tho firo ap parently inattentive to the conversa tion of the others, which had been carried on in a low tone, at tho oppo site side of tho room. "So hero goes for tho Pule to-night, and meeting to morrow. " ho added, taking down his gun from the pegs on which itwassus pended, near the ceiling above. "What do you want todo with that, Bart?" asked Woodburn. "I want it for lining to my cout," replied Bart. " If our coats had all been lined in that fashion, the first night there, at Westminster we needn't havo had to attend French's funeral, nor you been troubled about the papers they got out when you was in jail." "IJravn, Bart. You see that my coat is not wanting of that kind of lining, don't you? said Piper, throwing open his great coat aud displaying a rifle, as the two now left the house together, on their way to the rendezvous of the liberty party.

The next moment, the door was seen vom iting forth its throng of excited victors, who, as they reached the open air, joined the crowd eagerly awaiting the result at the entrance, and, with them, renewed and reiterated the glad I l,,if t:n l. .l:...- l.:n 1.1)01. their voles for them personally, but won't have 'em pledged for this." "That is well thought of," respond ed Piper. "They havo indeed got the screws on soma I know of, and would so threaten 'em with prosecutions, that 1 fearful they would get 'em, sure enough. ' ,But what's the prospect about the resolutions?" "Well, the colonel thinks, after what has ditter taken place at West minster, that we can carry them: and if wo can, it will pretty effectually tie 'om up, even if they got their officers. But wo der don't mean to let 'em. For the plan is, that us soon as we've dit ter carried (he resolves, to dissolve the meeting without making any town officers at all, which we think can be carried by the same voters, and which if we can ditter do it, with the resolves, will kill Fitch and his papers as dead as a ditter dum smelt, and so save the property of Harry, and that of all others in the same dersituation. " 'Good!" exclaimed Piper, with an imation; "1 see through the move now; and we'll go at 'em. and whip 'em out on it: and then if Fitch don't give up tho cattle, we'll make him, by tho course we thought of taking, last night, in case we failed electing our officers to day, or of getting any vote on Harry's affair. " "Yes; but wo must bo ditter lively in getting in the voters. You and Bart ! go in and vote; and I will beat about the bush, here, for more help, before I igo in; for as they have just admitted some to vote on a twenty hours' resi de nee, us I can ditter swear they did, ' I intend to vote myself, this time, and have all those from my way der do j the same," said the hunter, bustling loff to muster his forces." Just as Dunning, who had collected a baud of voters, without much regard to their qualifications, was pushing into the house at the head of his re cruits, an outcry was raised within; and, the next moment, Bart Burt was seen hastily emerging from the crowd, followed by the kicks and cudgel blows of the tories. through whom he hud been compelled, to save himself from a rougher handling, to run the gauntlet to the door.

Jn every life there are three regions: that of the light, where duty is clearly defined ; that of the dark, where wrong is no less clearly marked ; and a great borderland of twilight, where there is no certainty, where dividing lines are not distinct, and where each man must be fully persuaded for him self.

After a fortnight a active exertions on tho parts of each of the opposing parties, in mustering and drilling the respective forces, preparatory to the approaching contest, in which both were equally confident of victor)', though too seusiblo of the danger of losing it to remit any effort, the others had assembled at one o'clock in the afternoon. After spending several hours in a disorderly and wrangling debate, in relation to the qualification of voterv, but which at last resulted in rejecting tho test required by the charter, - that of being a freeholder, and in permitting every resident to vote, the ballots line been taken for moderator.or chairman of the meeting, when, as much to the dismay of the tories the joy of their opponents, it was found that victory, in a majority of three, had declared for the latter, who thereupon testified their exulta tion in the uproarious manner we have described. After a while, the noise and tumult within the house was suddenly hushed, and the clear, deliberate tones of some new speaker adddressisg the assembly, became audible to those without the building ; while the attent and eager looks of those who stood listening in the crowded pass-way, plainly evinced that some important and exciting sub ject had been introduced. At iengtn the voice ceased, and a new commotion ensued within. "What new movement is that? What is going on there now, Piper?" asked one standing near the door, ' as the young mau came elbowing his way out of the house. "Why, they are on Colonel Carpen ter's resolution. Haven't none of you hero been in there to hear it?" said Piper, turning to the querist and other political associates, standing near by. "No: what is it about?" inquired several of the latter, with interest. "The York Rule," answered Piper with an animate air. "Tho colonel offered a resolve that we shake off the York government now, henceforth and forever. And this he backed with a speech which would havo dono you good to hear. Ho went into them, I tell you, like a thousand of brick ; and not a singlo tory tongue of 'em all dare wag in trying to answer it. They are now beginning to vote on the resolu tion, which, if carried, tho colonel in tends to follow up by another, cutting up all British authority root and branch. " At this moment, they were joined by Tom Dunning, who camo hurrying out of the house, and, taking Piper aside, said "Do you ditter understand the plan of what's going on in there, Tiper, and the importance to you here, in Guilford, of carrying it?" "Not fully, perhaps," answered Piper. "I didn't havo a chance to talk with Carpenter and the other com mittee before this move was made, and don't understand why they did not nrgo on the election of tho other town officers, as usual, after mnKing a mod erator, instead of getting up these res olutions.
