and ho sat in pitying silence in- wardly praj ing for the miserable and the bereaved mother Mrs Meynell wept almost as bitterly for the living as tho dead Lucy Hamilton hung sobbing over her murdered friend accustomed to no restraints and the habits of the boy continued to enslave the man Allowed to select his own ciety he had plunged into dissipation was addicted to gambling and when he stood orphaned and destitute in the world the tempter was not wanting to urge his zied passions till from tho victim he be- came the accomplice He forged bills to an amount the fraud was dis- coved With the bloodhounds of justice in pursuit he fled from his native land and in that where he sought His voice failed and he sunk fainting on his pillow The missionary wiped tha death damp from his brow and tered a cordial He revived and feebly pressing the kind hand that infolded his in broken accents continued his sion I loved and was beloved Tho ence of virtuous affection in a measure even rny

It was here the tain that cleanses from sin was unsealed for He paused closed his eyes from which the light of life was fast de- parting and folded hia emaciated hands in prayer Tho Missionary watched and prayed with him through that solemn night He spoke little more except to murmur a few words of prayer but once when the Missionary stooped over him to observe his changing countenance he opened hia eyes motioned faintly to place his hand on his breast and whispered Bury it with inc Before sunrise he was dead His ble funeral was soon arranged and his request the missionary drew from his pocket the relic which had been taken from the neck of tho deceased It was a morocco case auch as are used to hold miniatures He opened it It contained a knot of white ribband ly with blood and a ringlet of light brown hair On tho satin that ed the were embroidered the words Iva to Frederick A NEW HAMPSHIRE MYSTERY Tho history re- late occurred within our own recollection and near a certain locality in New shire The exciting event will be and remembered About two miles from a small town in the state we have mentioned the road crosses a hill of con- eminence behind which a valley of a mile broad called by the people an At long and fixedly on his lifeless bride kissed her pale lips and her cold calm brow detached something from her bosom he in his own and silenth rendered himself to the officers who in e- silence lod him from the room officer got behind the chim ley and picked up a large knife which to jether with the floor around was clotted with blood but tha woman continued to deny her guilt s ad accused the lying in revenge or having been whipped the night before This rash sertton instantly d her guilt for it was quite evident a cb Id of five years old could never invent au oh a story and the burst of indignation ag linst the moth er for her unnatural told the strong feeling that was awakened a- gainst her She was still overcome with terror and kept in awe t the mother's frowns so that it required persuasion and promises of protect on before she would reveal where the i loney was den At length she pom fed to the spot and the sum of thirty doll dug up the female demon had launched a hui lan being into eternity The investigation was continued the woman was placed in ci and the pond about a quarter ofa mile wide was dragged with grappling ir all tions yet no body was di cohered Tha next day the search wont o t with like cess and at length when ill other efforts seemed useless it was suggested that the pond might be drained d y and by this process the body m jst ine Stably come to light This plan after some further search in which the poL by the child was found sta ned with blood and with some o apparel ed to it was adopted bv the authorities and a sluice was dug to 1 jt the water off down the hill side Tht sometime and wlen a vent was opened the impetuous rut a of the water swept away nearly the the pond upon the hill aide let ing off the flood atone bound followed by a mass of pitch black mud dead logs fre h water turtles cat fish padlocks eels w ter snakes and all the strange tenants of the pool Still the body did not appear s nd after a ough examination of the black bottom of tha pond vague s of some other kind began to b3 entertained by he crowd The child vas again ined the pond was again scraped and the over which tl 3 dark sediment and filth of tho pond now lay a foot deep was carefully inspected n all directions and still the my tery was The evidences of the the finding of the knife the pole tne money the man's strong

neighborhood was missed Why could the body not be fou nd Ten Knickerbocker REMINISCENCE OF THE LATE WAR About the middle of May in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and the inhabitants ofa little village not far from the mouth of the Geneses were thrown into a tumult of alarm by the appearance of the British fleet un- der Sir J L Yeo off their shores In he general consternation and confusion various expedients were proposed ed suggested for ridding selves of their unwelcome visitor Some were in favor of an immediate tion of their dwellings others thought it more easy to keep him off shore and prevent their landing than to defend their families after they had landed The proposition waa at last suggested by a citizen to and save what mey could in a hurried flight But ly and manfully tha good people this shameful proposition and put their heads together to concoct a plan more a- greeable to their sturdy patriotism During this time of doubt and tainty it mis a moving spectacle to see the of distress which many of the exhibited aa the ships of tho fleet slowly neared the shore thers shrieked end clasped their infants to their in fearful anxiety the little girls while the larger ones looked to their for protection in this hour of peril These latter again blunt ly declared that they would not run but would stick by and see fair play Let the red coats come on we'll meet em One young gallant swore that the British were a set of rascally good for nothing under heavens hut to scare women and children The more saw in this move the destruction of their stores and feared for the result Determining at last not to yield out a show of fight the militia were sembled men and boys in all three dred strong and occupied an elevated po sition near the lake whence they could see all the manoeuvres of the fleet Pre- a boat was seen to put off from the commodore's ship Now let the valiant soldiers nerve themselves for the But stop It ia a flag of truce Now our friends are in a worse dilemma than before being entirely guiltless of any knowledge of military or naval etiquette or indeed of military affairs in general save the regular militia drill What Nobody seemed to know what to do but every body was of opinion that must be done Alter some deliberation hastened undoubtedly by the rapid approach of tha boat Lieutenant delegated to lead a file of men down to tho edge find out what was wanted As this Lieutenant is a conspicuous sand conjectures flew i round each of which only added to the perplexing nays tery A strange uncertainty forced lay This piece the the pet pie By all land from over tillage was worn out and it seemed cert in that the mar 6 man had never bi en thrown into Some years after this time a had gone out as a Missionary to New Holland was walking in the vicinity of Port Jackson As he passed a small hut n woman stepped out and as she turned from the door she said to who stood within I will cone and stay tho night with you I think it will bo the lost that he will trouble any body He's going fast Is any one ill there my good man T said the missionary pointing to the hut Yes curtsying a poor fellow ofa in consumption I take it I hink sir I was just telling his nurse that not sec to morrow Is he yes only weak and faint with the sickness Do you think a visit from me would pleasant 01 useful to him my sort of person is ho Oh thankful and glad he'd be to see sir I dare for him he's as cind and good a always sorrowful like and never having much to say but always ready to do a good turn or any What is his Smith is his name air but ho folks call him the gentleman as much as iny thing else When he came here first sir about four years ago his hands were white and soft and his skin as if ho sun had never on it Hard tibor sir changed his looka but it didn't change his ways I'll uphold h im a born gentleman any rate But I'm keeping you here air Thia way if you and sho the way to the cot tage The little building was divided into two rooms and although they small and low und tho scanty furniture of the coarsest kind all was scrupulously neat The woman tapped lightly at the door of the inner room the nurse opened it and the missionary stood by the bod The interview was long and ing At intervals as hia strength ted the dying man related portions of his history It was a tale of sin and sorrow but it was also a tale of penitence terly did the sinner mourn over his guilt und earnestly did he cling to the roas ot Calvary for pardon His name lie said was not that by which he was known he would not mention it for he had noble and virtuous relatives He was an only and indulged child hia parents as he had become of age they had alv ays ex- their income be found himself a beggar Be had been inured to no pri belonged to a man who kept a tavern on the road side Near the top of tho hil on the side nearest the valley was a deep pond a strango place it is true for such a thing to exist but the nature of the ground made ci permanent lodgement of water in the hollow of the hill perfectly natural Near this pond there stood a rude tenement in which lived a woman in the neighborhood and looked upon with distrust and had a little girl her a child of five years old whom she called her daughter and who was her only companion in the hut in which she lived A farmer who resided upon the outskirts of the town upon opening his door one morning discovered this poor little girl barefooted and ragged crouched beneath tho cave of tho houso and seemingly very much terrified When he questioned her she said she had come to tell him thing dreadful but aha feared her mother would kill her for doing so O good she said I think it is right that I should tell you for it is thing very bad but my mother will kill me if you tell her Tho farmer quieted the child's fears and then learned from her the horrid tion that her mother had last night dered and robbed a traveller who had stopped ut her house It had stormed during the night and a strange man she said had come to the little ly hut looking for shelter He had gone to sleep stretched upon the floor before the fire and hearing a groan in the night she woke up und saw her mother killing the stranger with a knife She lay still in groat terror and saw her wretched mother take money from the man's ets and hide it then drag the body into a narrow space behind the chimney and covered it with the brush wood used for fuel after which the miserable murderess crept into bed by the child's side The poor girl could not sleep and at the first peep of morning she saw her mother rise again drag the body from behind the chimney to the pond back of the house tie stones to it and with a long pole force it down into the thick mod in the bottom Terrified pale and almost with tiered man had never en thrown into the pond at all yet tha the bloody deed had been perpetrated v as from the dence conclusively estab isbed Thus thu affair enveloped in darkness und all hope as abandoned of discovering the body J he woman could not ba convicted upon evidence of the child and that evidence itself could not be substantiated without he finding of the body So while every erson was tied of her guilt it was c ear nothing but her confession won J ever bring the murderess within the paver of the She with nng ued to deny all o of the murder and at length she was released from confinement no pi ing of ever being able secure her con- viction A few months passed on and the in- terval upon which th pond had been emptied and which before had been most worthless now to be a flour piece ot land and people would re- mark that the draining of the big pool had at least proved a ood thing for the Yankee tavern keeper who owned the ground below Now for the lent of this tragedy A qu occured be- ween the heroine of tht story and the in- of the interval In ion she came forward i nd threw a blaze of light upon this blood chilling mystery at once opened a 1 eyes wide with astonishment A scher le was laid open he intricate and cunning ly devised wheels of which could never ha been set in ion but by a genuine br and born educated son o Yankee The tavern keeper war tod his land im- proved he wanted the turned on to t and soon hit upon a plan to have the done free of expense He laid awake matured I is plan ed with the poor woma i for fifty dollars to put it in operation ai d ahe with the sistance of a y artful child ried it out She kill d a pig a knife and pole taught her child the sto ry to tell and acted o it the game in a manner worthy of the beat living of Lady Mac tavern character in this reminiscence it may no be amis to give the reader a description ol his person in the words ofa man He was a great favorite among the girls of the village and had enjoyed great name in the military line having commanded a company of volunteers in Now Hampshire beforo he emigrated to tho West A shrewd yet reckless dispo sition marked all his actions A man couldn't get round him no more than he could choke a lion and yet he was as free open-hearted a chap as ever kissec a pretty girl afore she knew it I've seen him the sogers too when Captain Shute used to bo to the a Saturday evening and couldn't o the military exercises In short th gallant lieutenant was a universal favor ite particularly among the ladies whc regarded him as their especial guardian and champion in these troublesom times Putting himself at the head of his men the worthy lieutenant marched down the hill and forming a line near th edge awaited the next in stern silence Indeed he afterward said that he wasn't so very sure but th fellows in the boat wanted to play em trick and if there ever was a time whe he felt a great responsibility on him was then He did not wait long befor he was hailed by the British messenger Is that the way you receive a flag o fear the tittle girl fled from her mis arable habitation and ran a mile and u half to the farmer's bouse to relate horrid details Of course thn alarm was instantly en and a terrific excitement flew through the town and among the neighbors for miles around An early hour in the morning found constables and a large of poisons assembled at the man's dwelling The unhappy turned pale and exhibited wory aign of guilt first refusing tho officers then forcing herself between them and the space behind the if eager to retard investigation but attl vociferously not innocence An keeper had furnished tl e thirty dollars of the murdered rm ney but when his object was gained he to pay the promised dollars ind not caring a pin whether the would expose his plan or not Th is o the grand and thus our h rilling narrative of A New gentle reader turns out to be neither teas than a and ly executed KICK Mr the core in one of hia new s a philanthropic man aa one who bis own ditty affaire and he of other people truce It is generally the custom to me without arms on such occasions said lieutenant still ing his position without ing his head didn't know but you might cut up some deviltry or other with our people as you seem to be a peaceable well-disposed haved sort of a fellow my men may right about face a little ways So turning on his heel a la he ordered his men to retire a few rods and hold themselves in readiness for further action By this time the boat was close in shore and the messenger an as appeared from his uniform was about stepping ashore when the Yankee interrupted him I say hello you don't coro on this ground till I know what you're So jest stay in the boat and say your say out The Englishman perceiving it would be useless to oppose this appeal resumed his position in the boat and declared hia mission which was to demand a der of the stores on penalty of instant de- struction in case ofa refusal Our officer replied I don't know about that ere last part of the business but I will consult ray and get their opinion on the sub- ject 13 hill and placing himself in front of hia i who had waited his return j to orders he delivered himself of the 1 lowing reply to the demand of the Brit I am ordered by the General to tell yon at we shall keep tho stores until king shall send a force sufficient to ake them away Sof if you want em r dW you must get em the best way you Somewhat astonished nt the reception had met with and seeing nothing very in tho countenance of the sturdy the servant of the king gave the word to hia men and quickly returned to ship While occurrences were taking lace the crowd on the hill suddenly dii and tho militia in regular order led off on tho left into the brushwood tid marching round to the right d again on the hill in sight of the fleet tit in a different order so as to present he appearance ofa new company just nr from another quarter These again n turn filed off and immediately another of men came directly in front filed and disappeared like tho manoeuvres were repeated again ud again and the motley uniforms of he citizens with a great noise of drum and fife contributed not a little to the de- ception After this had continued a considerable ime the lieutenant remarked probably somewhat fatigued with his arduous that the Britishers didn't seem in any hurry about them stores and he ned that they would take time to er tho matter some afore they tried and so it proved for the British der deliberated a long time without any movement and after firing a guns with no other effect than to a- waken tho echoes of the dense forest which skirted the lake and elicit a few creams from the leisurely away to the no small gratification of the who feared for the success ot heir ruse But the final disappearance of the fleet in the course of the afternoon quieted entirely the doubts of the most and they returned to their dwellings sincerely thanking that dence or as the worthy captain las it which had protected them from the that threatened them The evening was spent in joyous festiv iy and the agents of this by no means forgotten in the gener al joy the hero of the day and nobly he bore his honors reaping the reward of his labors in the smiles of the ladies whom he had It is assorted that ho was seen to steal various kisses from the lips cf these pretty charmers in tho course of the evening G II M PERSEVERANCE There is not a virtue that is more im- portant to inculcate in tho young mind than perseverance

labour pause to reflect what innumerable efforts of the busy ringers must have been again and again repeated ere perfection ed the woik In looking upon the stately ing majestically on wave let us consider what perseverance must have been exerted to bring her to this state of completion that plank was added to plunk nail driven after nail that a day i week a month's labour scarce any visible
