The civil authorities, ssid he, "have boen in. formed that the noted pirate, Alannin;, is conceal, ed in the suburbs of the city, with a few of his most desperate followers. You know that he lit once been taken, and escaped, and the police hate ever since been on the alert for him. It is generally supposed thu he will make a desperate defence, and a guard of the military has been ordered out to protect the officers of justice. The command is in trusted to me, and I snatched a moment to tell you not to expect me home before morning." "Genevieve listened in terror, and slid, "I have felt a presentiment of eril darkening my mind during the day. Tis foolish, I know, to in. dulga such feelings, but I cannot shake them oft Be careful, for Heaven's sake." "For your sake. I ccrlainlvwill." reolied Mellon. smiling. "If your check blanches at the prospect of a alight skirmish, lore, how co'ild you bear to see me go forth lo battle f Still the alarms of that too sensitise heart, and be assured I shall return in aafelv. A smile, bright as those of former days, beamed j on his face, as he hado her farewell, and she stood at the window watching his graceful figure until it receded from her tiew : then, wiping tho tears from her eyes, she murmured, "If any harm were to befall him, I should be lost, indeeil. Yet I fear my fond idolatry desertes some punishment." Her presentiments were too fatally verified. The pirates contended fiercely, and Mellon was brought harae seterely wounded. Genetiete hung oter him in speechless agony, and refused to listen to the consolations the surenn endeitoured to (the her. For some weeks his life was held by a feeble thread, but the unremitted attentions of his detoled wife, and the prescriptions of a judicious medical attendant, finally restored him lo sone thing like health, though his conslitulioi hid re ceived a shock, from which he felt it would never recotcr. During his illness, his uncle visited him, and soft ened by the extreme distress of Genevieve, he be gan by pitying their unfortunate circumstances, and ended in offering them an asylum in his own house. Melton rejoiced in the illness thai opened to him a prospect of future fortune, and gate him the power of placing his admirable wife in the sphere she was so eminently lilted to adorn. The heart of Geuetiete was beginning to recot er something of its former lightnets ; and the smile that irradiated ber lovely features the delighted Melton saw was the offspring of genuine happiness, when a letter was contcted to ber, informing her that if she wished to obtain information respecting her father, the writer had it in his psvter to gratify her. He directed where an answer might be do osited, that would reacb him, and Genetiete replied that il it was the ici'M of her father that she should be informed of bis situation, nothing could afford her more gratification. The answer was brief. The writer directed her to go to the prison in which the pirates were con fined : to inquire for Manning, and desire an inter view with him. She was commanded not to in form her husband of her intentions, as his knowl edge of them would compromise the safety of her father. He adjured her, by the lore her father bad borne for her, not to fail in following his directions. "Ifvou do," the letter concluded, "you will repent it to tbe last moment of your existence, and the recollection ofit will darken every hour of your future life." After that she could not hesitate : and, with an in definite feeling of drcad.sbe prepared to obey the in junctions contained in the letter. During Melton's illness and convalescence, the pirates had been taken and condemued to death, and were now wating their fate in the city jail. Disguising herself as tvell as site was able, she made some excuse for absenting herself from home for several hours, and proceeded to the prison. Her correspondent bad informed her that, on show ing the superscription of his last letter, the jailor would readily admit her. She followed his direc tions implicitly : and, with much less difficulty than she had anticipated, found herself in the cell of the condemned convict. A mist seemed to fall oter her sight, as the ponderous door closed after her, and she trembled so violently tbsl she was compel iea 10 lean against tne wall lor support. As she recovered her self possession, she looked I iuuiiu uc iiiiici uie place III Will&U sue SIOQU. In one corner, on a heap of straw, sal a man with his wrists and ankles hearily ironed. His form was wasted almost to a skeleton. His features were thin and sallow, and his matted black hair hung in masses oyer his brow ; but amid all the squalidness that surrounded him, it was evident thst the per son before her had knowirbetter days, and that he had once been eminently handsome. There were marks of deep suffering, such as "the soul's war doth leare behind," in his countenance; but if she had not known it, she would nerer hate said, that she was in the presence of a man whose bloody deeds had so often filled her heart with horror. There was none of thatsatageness and ferocity she had expected to see stamped on the face before her. On the contrary, his dark eyes seemed to rest on her with an expression of pity and tenderness. He appeared to be laboring under strong agitation, and rising with difficulty, he addressed her in a deep, sad tone, that thrilled to her heart ; "So you hoie como, and the fateofa father is not indifferent to you, although you are surround ed by all that makes life desirable to the young," "Yes, I am here to learn the history of a parent, who has never ceased to be dear to my heart. In mercy tell me what danger hangs over him and if it is in my power to avert it." "It is, lady; but can you bear to know trAoand what our father ist Are you prepared to find him fallen ; degraded ; unuorthy lo look on you, much less to call you his child t" "He is still my father," murmured Genetiete. "I can bear any thing better than this horrible suspense. I am ready to do any thing etery thing for him that lies in my power. Speak I in mercy to me all jou know." The man slipped one of bis hands from the iron ring that confined it, and threw back tho hair from his forehead. At the same moment he adranced, to that the light from the solitary window fell full on his features. Genetiete uttered one wild, heart, piercing shriek, and sunk neatly insensible on his bosom. In that calm, haughty face, though alter ed by lime, and wasted by intense suffering, she n.n.in.l ... T . . . 1. 1 I . ... I. T L 1. . . I I 'recognized her father I Yesrs had intervened smcc she hid last seen him, but she could nol ba Mis taken in the features so indelibly engrarcn on her memory. When alio recovered consciousness, she started from his supporting arm, and exclaimed ".Misery ! misery ! to find you at last, and thus !" and she 01 ere J her face with her hands, and wept bitterly. "Genevieve," slid her father, "you do indeed find me wretchedly situated. Had not necessity compelled me 10 unfold it, you should never hire known that you are the pirate's daughter." "Cm it be true I" slid Gencriere. "The pirate's daughter I Yes yes it is so. Am I thn child of that cruel man, ofwhuse deedsof dsrinj I have reid, while my blood congealed with horror ! Father! father! Oil, unit could so harden tour once feeling heart ?" "Uesperation," replied he. "I found myself an outcast, with a curse resting 011 my hetd. I was deputed of the fortune legally mine, by the unjust will of a cruel father. I felt a savage joy in break ing erery link that bound lire to ray species, and I touk a dreadful retenge for their cruelty to me. I hate seen the proud msn kneel for mercy, ami heard the coward shriek in his agony ; and I laugh ed as I heard the death rattle in their throats, and thought that t waa arenzed : but I did not wish sou to be like myself. Your pure heart, I was resolv ed, should neter be contaminates! by the guilt of mine. I knew it was death to be loted or cherish ed by such a wretch as I am, for had not a blight fallen on the only creature who ever truly loted 1 j. - . mo : ami 1 lore inyseii irom sou, anil tned to cease to care for you. But I was not all lost : there were some lingerings of humanity still in my heart, and you, alone, of all the world, were the only creature I did not hate. I hate never lost sight of sou. In yourporertyl would have lavished on you my ill gotten wealth, had it not all been wrested from me by the mutiny of my ungrateful followers. They set myself and my three faithful companions on shore, with nothing but the clothes we wore. We hate since rendered ourselves more notorious than erer, though no money was gained in our late achietements. I intended you logo down to the grate, without knowing the history of your unfor tunate parent : but the lore of life is strong, and ! knew it wasonlr through tour filial affection, that I could obtain tho means of escape. All I require ' of you is to visit me this evening, and bring a file ! with you, and ayou can proride a place of con cealment for me, for a few days, until tbe first beat of pursuit is oter, my escape is certain." Genetiete listened in bewildered silence. She was too much orerwhelmed by the recent dis covery, lo hate the power of thought That fath er, over whose image she had wept, in agonixed sorrow, and whose sufferings had inflicted the firat setero pang on her heart, was now before her, a condemned felon! ami she shrunk, with a feeling of dread andjiorror, from the conviction that her worst apprehensions were more than realized. Her father did not understand the cause of her silenca : "Do you shrink from assisting me!" he inquired, in a stern tone. Then, softening, be said, "If so, I can but die." "Die .'" almost shrieked the distracted Gene vieve. "Die!" when I can sire you! No, no ; if you do not wish to dnte me quite mad, do not use such reproachful language. I would indeed I would gite my life to wipe this stain from your name, or to rescue you from your impending fate." The unfortunate man again approached her, and drawing her towards him, threw his arm around her form, and slid in a tone softened by emo tion "And, fallen aa he is, you do love jour father t Genetiete, my child my beautiful my innocent this brief moment repays me for years of suffer ing. How I have loved you, the heart that has but one object on which to bestow its tenderness, and whieh is as adamant to the rest of the world, can alone feel. You hate been the passion of my life. Amid all your future years, think of are as one whose best feelings were turned into a fountain of bitterness, by the injustice of the world, and who recklessly sought to arenge on his whole species the injuries inflicted by a few inditiduals." Genetiete's sobs rendered it almost impossible to distinguish her reply. Su great was the agony of that moment, she felt the Impossibility of her wrung heart erer again experiencing so sarere a pang. Slia remembered tbe necessity of making some arrangement for her father's escape, and, af ter a struggle, she orercame her violent emotion sufficiently to speak calmly on the measures lo be pursued. There was a pavilion in the garden of MrCrawford surrounded by a quantity of thick shrubbery. For- I tunatcly the old gentleman was absent, and the key was in the possession- of Genetiete. This was the . I A ILL- I. ... I - most secure astlum she could think of for her fath er, and r.ipidlt describing its situation, she promis ed to call in the evening with the file, and tbe next morning, at early dawn, to meet him in the garden, and admit him into his place of concealment. "Remember, Genetiete," said the father, "that your husband must know nothing of this until I am safe from pursuit." "No; it shall be confined to my own; breast until but will not the tailor auspectt" "No," replied Manning; "he has no suspicion ofthe relation in which we stand to each other. That shall neter be known through my agency. He is a friend 6f my better days, and ouce in boy hood, I conferred an obligation- on him, which has neter been forgotten. He would himself hue pro cured the means of my esespe, had lie dared do so. Now leave me, Genetiete, and do not fail in )our exertions, for on you, alone, I depend." We pus oter the wild anguish of Genetiete. That night sho did not attempt to sleep. She wslked the floor of her room during its long houra : and to all Melton's attempts to draw Irom her tho cause of her wretchedness, she replied with such a burst of ungoternable feeling, that lie at length desisted, in the belief that her mind was affected by illness. Her quick pulse, and burning hand, con vinced him that his conjectures were right, When he insisted on sending for medical adtice, she op posed it with such vehemence that lie acquiesced, determined, if sho was not much better in the morning, to attend no longer to her remonstrances. Seeing ber in such a state, he could not think of sleeping, and all her entreaties were rain to induce him to endeavor to obtain some rest. Aa morning approached, she became calmer, and taking the hand of her husband, she said, with touching so. lemnity, while tears streamed oter her pallid face "Charles, hato I eter deceired you !" "No, dearest, neter I" 1 "Then grant tbe request I am about to make, without seeking to know its motives. Il is dictat ed by a breaking heart, and must be complied with, Suffer me to leave you for one hour. I intended ta hare gone without your knowledge but you hare watched me so closely that I find it impossible. You think me delirious : I am not : I am as per fectly sane as eter I was in my life. Dut, if you refuse my request, it wilt dnte me to madness. In two days, I will explain all. You must promise not tu follow me, and to make no effort to discoter whither I am going." Melton was continccd, by her manner, that she was as she asserted, perfectly conscious of what she wassiying; and though perplexed and distressed, he thought her request might bate some reference to her father, and he reluctantly consented to com ply with it. She arose, and thanking him, prepar ed to go out Melton felt a thrill, almoH of horror, run through his heart, as the door closed on her retiring form, and something like a conviction thai she was hast ening into some unknown danger, came to his mind. So strong was this impression, that he fol lowed her, with the intention of recalling Ins per mission, uut ner movements were 100 rapid lor him. She was already out of tight ; and he returned with a heary heart to count the tedious moments, until the limited time of absence had expired. He looked at his watch more than once ; and at length, becoming impatient of her delay, be threw up a window, hoping to tee her returning. The window looked out on the garden, and the aim light 01 early uawn was beginning to disperse the gloom that enrelopcd esery object. Suddenly, lie beard a voice directly under the window, say, "We hate him now, safe enough. The old fel low did not think we would so soon track him to his hiding place. I saw him go iu that ere bouse, or my name is not Jack Dibbin." He looked down, and saw four men, well armed, stealing cautiously towards the patilion. In anoth er moment, the door of the building was thrown open, and he heard a scuffle, and a scream. That wild shriek appeared to freeze etery drop of blood in his veins, for he recognized the voice of his wife I He stood, far an instant, incspable of mov ing; but the report of a pistol roused him, and, darting from the room, he ran wildly towards the scene of strife. A man passed him, as he rushed into the pavilion, and he heard him jump oter the fence. What a scene wss there presented to the idoliz ing husband I His wife was supported in the arms of one of the officers of justice ; her hair banging loose oter her neck and bosom, and dabbled with the blood that was streaming from her side, and ber dress bore many of the same dreadful stains. "Has he escaped 1" she gasped, as Melton rush ed towards her. "Who ! who !" he franticly exclaimed, as he raised her in his arms, but she was past answering. She was borne to the house, and surgical assistance immediately procured. She lited some hours, and rerited sufficiently to explain the late erenta to her husband. The officers gate the remaining explanation. The escape of Manning had been tery soon discov er ed, and they traced him to the place of meeting with Genetiete. On the first alarm, he bad thrown open a window, and was in tbe act of leaping from it, when one of his pursuers leveled a pistol at him and fired ; his daughter threw bertelf before him, and the load pierced the side of the gentlest and most affectionate of human beings. It was night; and Melton sat alone beside tbe corse of ber who, through years of bitterness and poterty, had been an angel breathing peace and nope to his wounded spirit. The eyes that bad never before filled to reply to his were closed for eter ; and the cold lips had a placid smile on them, chiseled there by the icy touch of death. He kneeled beside ber couch and attempted 10 pray ; a groan of anguish broke the stillness that reigned in the apartment, and a figure approached the bier and looked on the young victim that lay there. The candles that illuminated the room, cast their sickly radiance on a face on which the spirit of desolation sat enthroned. Melton rose and sternly said "What means this intrusion t Who are you !

These were a father's words, andthey hate been fulfilled. I hate drained the bitter draught prepared for me to its tery dregs."

Tbe Jforement for Freedom. Will it Soccted I Henceforward the great question, witb na ia to be, Shall Slavery in the Nation be suffered to ex tend beyond its present limits s and exist longer where it can, without infringement of tht Constitu tion' be done away t Unless we mistake, that is also soon to be the issue made in- alt tbe free States. Will the movement succeed X We are of opin ion that it must, or the Union be ultimately dis solved. What are the grounds of tbb opinion f Some of them are these : In the first place, many in each of the great parties are sick of tbe coolest about measures which, whatever their importance, will neither save nor ruin the country nor themselves ; and as sick of eome among the men under whom they have long fought as leaders of tbe host. They wish for repose, and are resolved that repose, at least from such a struggle, they will hate. The Bank question baa been lot some time dead; and if the Sub-treasury is found impracticable, tbe evil will soon work its own cure. On the subject of a tariff, the tendency of public opinion is in tbe di rection of Free Trade ; and tbe people are not likely to be satisfied till they have a taste of iu fruits, be they sweet or bitter. Many will be dis posed still to contend, but not with the energy and heart ofother days. Besides : all tbe great questions of national pol icy are at the last to be decided according as sla very shall rule the nation, or be itself kept down by the spirit and power of freedom. Tbia baa now become so evident, that one witb half an eye can not fail to see it. The South has been grasping at dominion till it has got the ascendancy in ono branch of Congress ; and none need be told bow it uses its power. Tbe conflicting of interests in the country does not arise from the extent of territory and the variety of climate and productions, but grows out of the existence of freedom in one por tion, with slavery in the other. It is not, however, the competition of free and slave labor, but the habits of life, and the spirit tint system of wrong engenders, which occasion all the difficulty. But for that, the country at large would be only the bel ter for this great diversity of climate, soil, and products. Had the character of the first settlers in all the States been homogeneous, and of the same type aa that ofthe Pilgrims of New England; and had slavery neter existed in the land, we abould hate had no nullification, no auch one-sided legis lation and gorermental acts at bate sometimes an noyed, and vexed, and alienated from each other, men who ought to lire together on terms of broth erhood and peace. We regard the habits and tem per produced by alarery, rather than any thing else, as tbe great cause of all our trouble. And this matter the people at tbe north- are very gener ally beginning 10 understand. Tbey bare aeen in the doings of the last three years especially, what were the designs ofthe tlateholding portion ofthe country; and what, when left to its mercy, they are to expect Their interests will be regarded just so far only as consists with the preservations tension, and perpetuity of slavery. And if they do not rise up in a body and oppose a broad front of resistance to tbe farther encroachments of tbe slave power, they will come at length ; and the opposi tion will not be made in vain. It wilt be felt that all other questions respecting tbe great interests of the country are subordinate to that of slavery; and agaiost that interest tbey will contend, for their own and the country's good. But there is a cause that lies deeper, and is on influenced by any; question merely of tbe day, which gives the chief promise of ultimata success. Slavery is a moral oil, in comparison with which its political mischief is as nothing; and the civil ized world is becoming every day more awake and alive to its wrongs. Not only are- men anxious to free themselves from all seeming participation in iu guilt, but there b a sympathy for tbs oppressed which will not rest till slavery is shut up within its present limits, and all constitutional methods bars been employed for doing it away where they are in any wise responsible lor ita existence. Here, un der God, in the humane, philanthropic, moral, and religious spirit of the people who are free, i oar hope. And it is a mighty rock to rest upon, this spirit of a free people, taught from their cradle to bate oppression in all its forms, knowing well tbe rights of man, and feeling their accountableness to God, for the manner in which tbey deal, individu ally or collectively, with thtir brother man. We remember bow in our boyhood the thought of Southern sl story would make our bosom burn with shame for tbe country; and how we used to almost wish for a separation of the Northern from tbe Southern States, because of the dark shadow that was cast over all tbe land by that wicked institu tion. Yet those were not days of declamation about slaverr,when the heart was fired by the fre quent recital of its wrongs ; but that was the spon taneous emotion of a soul loving its liberty, and longing for all others to be free. Tbe feeling is a natural one. It ia abroad in all tbe free Slates ; and is strengthened by tbe mor al and religious sensibilities and principles of tbe people. It will not sleep ; but only wait for a wise and just plan of procedure to be set forth, to show itself in action, Whether that will immedi ately be, we cannot tell ; but of this we are confi dentit will continue to increase until such apian is devised. And in this moral and religious princi ple and fe.ling is the guaranty of ultimate success.
