WILLIAM STONE.
Brattlaboro, March 8, 1848. 29
eled ; that all bchiml me was fast becoming
a smoking sea of fire, and for the first lime
Ihc thought of ilangcr, that I might be over
taken, nr possibly surrounded, occurred to
me.
My horse was a powerful one, but not
scry fleet, nor yet fresh; but witlout the
loss of moment 1 applied Ihc wkip, and
quitting my direct route, bore to the left be
cause that placed ins mora squarely before
my enemy. Soon the tongue of fire, the
advance guard of my terrible foe, became
distinctly visible on my righl, at about, two
miles distance, as near as I could judge,
stretching on with a speed that was really
frightful, I knew the struggle was lo bo
with that, and pushing my horse to the ut
most, kept my eye fited upon it, like the
wily rncer, intent on measuring the potter
of his antagonist before the final effort.
For a few minutes Ilia result was in doubt,
but no! long. Sinews of flesh uere no
milch for the wing of the wind which bore
on that fleet and terrific column of fire.
And I became satisfied thai it was outstrip
ping me, and almost with a feeling of in
difference; for I thought for the moment,
that my last hope was gone, and was brac
ing tny heart and nerres for the final event
of life. It was now twilight, and as the day
departed, and the shadows of night fell
round, the cordon of fire seemed to magni
fy its splendors and its terrors, and like a
vast serpent, lo extend itself behind and on
both sides, and to he closing up Its folds to
encircle me. I was no strsnger on that
part of Ills prairie; its general localities,
though one portion ia very!rnuch like anoth
er, were familiar to me; and in recalling
them to mind, I recollected a little rugged
mound or hill, some twenty or thirty feci in
height, and was satisfied that I was no great
distance from it. With my hopes revived
a little, I taxed my siiiht to the utmost on
every swell of ground that I passed, and at
icngtii aetecteu tne taint outline oi tne em
inence in advance Dut the fire was mak
ing for it too, and the subtle leaping tongue
on my right hand, now quite ahead of me,
already seemed almost between us, and pre
pared with a single leap lo cross my path
tnd secure its victim. Still with my al
most exhausted horse. I pressed on, with au
energy and despair so mighty as almost of
themselves to ureck the powers ot lite. I
have not recovered from the effects of thai
mental struggle to Ihisday but as you no
doubt conclude, the mound saved me. In
the race for life, I was obliged, as it Mere
to place myself side by side, with that giant
and awful sword of flame, and for the last
hslf mile, the contest was doubtful, hope
less and dreadful. Ilut God netted my
horse with an unnatural strength, as it
seemed to me, and guarded his footsteps so
that every effort told ; and at last I dashed
upon the bare of the mound where there was
no fit substance for the devouring element
tn follow, and was safe. The flames suepl
by with a (lull, heavy roar, and a hot,
sweltering, suffocating breath, burning with
an intensity and grandeur which realized to
the imagination my ideas of the final catas
trophe of nature, encircled and passed the
little eminence on which I stood, and
stretched olTin tno long lines as far as the
eve could reach. I fell upon my knees; and
since that terrible night I trust I have been
a more thoughtful and thankful man.
Godey's Lady's Hock;
fXT" Ten or twelve yeara since, Mr B. K.
Palmer, of Meredith, N, II. caught his leg
in a bark mill, and so dreadfully was it
mangled, that amputation became necessary.
A poor boy, he supported himself as he could
and prompted by his own wants, turned his
attention to the invention of an artificial leg
which would answer his purpose better than
any in use. His success exceeded all ex
pectation, those usinff the article not only
walking with comfort, but with such ease
and naturalness that llieir condition would
hardly be suspected. He lias been offered

Bsnux, March 19, 1848.
How shall I describe lo you-lhc events which
have just taken place the scenes of which I
was a witness? Ilia past night has been one- of
tho most appalling I hat e ever pissed through,
and may 1 necr know such another.
During the whole night has been heard the
firing and cannonading of 30,000 troops, upon
an alniot defenceless people. What slaughter,
what carnage have tho past twelve hours wit
nessed I The rattle of musketry, the thunder
of cannon, the veils of an infuriated ticoplcthu
trampling of soldiers and horses, the clash of
anna, tho clatter of tiles and chimneys thrown
upon the heads of the soldiers, tho lurid light of
fires burning up barrack! and buildings in vari
ous jwrtions of tho city, have all joined in pro-
uucui an vueci iw tcrrntu iu ira ucswiuvu.
For Uio last five dava the city has been very
unquiet, and fur the last fourteen have the
troops taen almost continually under arms, and
I tiresumc that for the last sixty hours, not a sol
dier has had any more sleep than could be got
rcstinr on his arms in tne streets.

On i etlnestlav evening crowds of people,
nrincinallr of the lower classes, surrounded tho
palace. The addresses to the King had produc
ed no result. A citizen made a speech to the
ieople, exhorting them logo home and be peace
able. "Wcaro peaceable," replied they, "but
we have no work we have no bread, and why
should we go home to starve ?" Two Regiments
of Cavalry suddenly ch-xrged into the square
where this dense mass of people was assembled.
The scene was a dreadful one ; the people were
penned up were without arms, and indeed at
tempted no defence, but were pursued and cut
down by the dragoons, with a savage ferocity
and relentleasnesa. This charge waa followed by
a volley of inuiketrv from some comoaniea of in
fantry, and the number of killed and wounded
mast hare been considerable.
Thursday was an exciting day. The streets
were filled with military, and the people assem
bled in crowds shops were closed, and procla
mations from tho President of Police were post
ed up, forbidding more than twenty persons to
assemble together, and saying that any crowd
not dispersing upon the beat of a drum or blast
of a trumpet, would bo fired upon; directing all
pood citizens to keep in their houses, and all
doors to be closed and locked by eight o'clock.

I had the baggage removed to my residence

Tup. Smiles of Inmnts. Infants only
a month old are often seen to smile in their
sleep. Dr. Beatlie says, "I have heard good
women remark, that the innocent babe is
then favored with some glorious lision.
Dut that a babo should have visions or
dt earns, before it has ideas, can hardly be
imagined. This is probably the elTect, not
or thought, but or some bodily feeling, or
merely of some transient contraction or ex
pansion ol the muscles. Certain it is, that
no smiles are moro captivatinc. And Pro
vidence no doubt intended them- as a sort of
silent language to engage our love ; even os,
by its cries, Ihe infant is enabled' to awaken
our pity, and command ous protection."

they were doing so, gave the order to fire, and
several respectable citixens were shot in the
street, beside some in the windows of tho shops.
Among the dead was a girl of 17. The Burgh
ers and citizens demanded arms, and said they
would be responsible for tho peace of the city if i
tno miutary were not sent a ay. i neir request
was refused. On Friday ramc the news of the
Revolution in Vienna, and the dismissal of Met
tcrnich. A deputation of 17 persons also came
from the Rhine provinces, demanding, rather
than asking, from the King the dismissal of Min
isters, and tbo reforms already mentioned as be
ing granted in mrny of the States. They had
that evening an audience with the King.
The cititens formed themselves to tho number

students, into a police for the preservation of

that unless they were granted by 4 o'clock, ho
had no longer any possessions on tho lUiine.
The citizens who had been acting as police, as
sembled with others of the people, by thousands,
tiulsed threo times. Tho firine- waa inecasani "
and terrific during tho night; at 7 came an ofn-
vvr uuuvr luj muuuir, wiui m paper 1Q uis band,
which he read to the crowd which gathered
around him. It was an address from the King
to his "dear and faithful Berliners," as he called
them, begging themto be quiet, saying the dis
turbances had all arisen from a misunderstand
ing, which he explained.
Soon I heard another proclamation promising
to send the military away and givo arms to tho
people j and soon another proclaiming his change
of Ministers.
The city now teemed nuict. and I took a walk
through the principal points of attack. The.
sccno is not to bo described. Hero wcro sol
diers, bloody and smoke begrimed, completely
exhausted, lying on tho ground haggard and
care-worn pools of blood, dead horsea, demol
ished houses and barricades, wcro everywhere
to bo seen. Litters carrying away the dead and
wounded were continually passing by; some
jwople were busily at work erecting barricadcr,
with every possible variety of weapons. Armo
ries and grain stores had been broken open, and
their contents distributed among the people;
soma oil casks that had sen ed for barricades had
been famously tarved by bullets and crane shot.

At noon tbo Arsenal ti as opened and arms were

diers at tho palace of the King and Prince of
Prussia, forDarghcrguards,"was a most inspir

the lit cried vassals of Royalty were exchangg.
for plain citizens. In one of the rooms of tho
palace were laid out the dead bodies for recog

two dead bodies stretched out under the altar.
Monday, 20th. The city is now in its usual
state of quietness and nothing gives evidence of
the terrible scenea of ycaterday and the day- be
fore, except that the people are busy in some
streets removing the remnants of barricades,
tec, and that some houses are destroyed, others
injured, and at least half the windows in the
city demolished, and the paving and nagging
stones are uprooted in all directions.
Last night every window in this great city
was illuminated, except those of the Palace,
which, with not a single window lighted in its
whole extent, exhibited a most gloomy and re
markable appearance. It was typical of the
times the abodes of royalty shrouded in dark
ness, and those of the people glittering with,
light. Throughout the city the most extravagant
manifestations of joy celebrated the dawn of
freedom. Cheering, shouting, firing, music, and
singing of patriotic, lively airs ; but all was
peaceful ; the new lords committed no depreda
tions. A single citizen, with a musket, had no
difficulty in any place to keep order. "I beg
you, gentlemen, to do so and so," and the crowd,
cheering, would instantly follow directions.
It is said that COO soldiers, and C4 officers
have been killed and wounded; 48 of the ofS
cers hare died, and many of the wounded In the
hospitals and elsewhere, are in a most desperate
condition. At almost every corner are recepta
cles for aid for the wounded and bereaved fami
lies, and many of them containing quantities of
money are left unguarded.
I saw to-day a picture of the Prince of Prus
sia posted on a wall with the inscription "Kve
ry good citizen spit on this I" He was a special
mark for tho citizens, and it is said bis clothes
were three times touched with bullets.
And now Prussia is free, and Germany is free,
and one grand confederacy is to be formed,
which shall bear the name Germany, and be a
name implying something more than the indefi
nite sense in which it is now used. Prussia will
be at the head of any motcment made toward
farther reform. The King having been forced
into concession, will hate now to grant all the
people ask. And knowing he mnst be thorn of
all his honor, he will be scry glad if the sem
blance of it is left to him with the tide of King.
Henceforth no other than Constitutional mon
archy will botoleratcd in Germany, and perhaps
not even this. The character of tho people,
however, demands, I think, something beside as
liberal a Government as our own. They seem
to require something between them and duty to
look up to, and do reverence to. I think, there
fore, the King will remain such, but ob, how
shorn of all tn.it raado him so powerful 1 Like

The Old Woman's Race with a Loco
motive. In a cottage not very far from the
well known village of Ecclefecuan, which can
boast of more bridges than even the metropolis
itself, there resides a gudo wife who is now in
her 92d or 93d year, and is able, notwithstand
ing, to read without the aid of spectacles, and to
use her legs with moro vigor than many of her
juniors by a couple score ot years. From her

more than the velocity of the race-horse. For
once, however, even steam was too slow, and,
with wind in very fair order, the monarenarian
gained tho bridge, ran below and back again,
ere the ponderous train whizzed above the arch.
During her race, tho met a young female ac
quaintance, who wished to speak with her. "I

stakea with great gusto, and was so little tho
worse for her exertions that she ofTered to run
the same distance against her son, who, after tho
specimen he had just had of his mother's power s
in the racing line, very prudently declined the
proposal. There is evidently no great need of
sanitary reform among the braes of Annandale.

Dough-faces. Mr Root, of Ohio, in a re
cent speech in the House of Representatives,
said:
"Now, sir, I can respect a man who was born,
and educated, and resides In the midst of slave
ry, though he bo in favor of extending that in
stitution into our newly acquired territory; and
when he chums that it is tho right of tho slave
holders to carry and hold their slaves there,
though I differ with him in opinion, I can be
lievo him sincere and honest But for a man
born, educated and residing in a free State, and
professing anti-slavery tentuncnts, to chop about
on the eve of election, and pander to the slave
power in tho miserable bopo of political advance

ever after be known, doughface. Judas Iscariot

up, and theso tho people were hooting at arid

swer from tho King, saying the Diet should meet
on tho 2d of April with powers to decide on tho
great questions of tho day, and granting imme

nee, calling them hia dear and faithful citizens,
and telling them what ho had done for them.
They made an immenso tumult. Some said they
were cheering, and tome that they were hooting.
The King motioned with his band toward tho
crowd, and suddenly there was a discharge of
musketry.
This tpark lighted tho flame, and from the
discharge of those muskets, which the King af
firms in his proclamations to have been accident
al, may the terriblo events of the following night
be ascribed. The news of another attack bv
the troops upon tho people spread like wild
