About eleven o'clock on a mild De- cember night, in the year 1808, Mr. Nicholas Young, a respectable mer- chant uf New York city, turned the key in, bis ,s tore door and directed bis steps been busily engaged in taking an.account of stock and was therefore urrusnVlly latj. A model of regularity in all bnbits, be was never known to tie put of his house after ten in the evening, u'except on such periodical times ax jlie present. Ho wfhtu plain man of forty-five, whu had never married, und inhabited an unpretending but comfortable abode in what was then the semi rural district about Bleaker street. His family con- sisted solely of an old housekeeper aud a colored niaTi. He liad not walked far on the night in question, when he was startled by u cry as of femnle in seeming- ly piccecding from a close carriage, whicl) wag dnvinpr putt at a moderate rnta o'f veh'icie had'no't gons twenty-yards furt'her before the cry wag again raised, cltar und shrill, and he distinctly snwa white hntrdkei- uliief waving from one of the windows. ConbtP.utiunally fearless, and 011- dowed- with no small thare of native chivalry, Mr. Young lust no lime in hastening to the rescue of the presumed captive. Accident seemed to favor him, for just then the driver dropped liis -whip, and. before he could recover it and regain his scat the merchant was at the carriage door, which he attempt- ed to open. lie was resisted by a strong grasp from within, while a man thrunt his head from the window and angrily demanded what was meant by such un- w.-irrantnble intrusion. Mr Young as peremptorily inquired whether a female was being cariiud off against her will, und stated ha inten- tion of searching into the matter. lie was answered nt once by a blow on the head from a. slingshot, or similar instru- ment, whuh felled him to 'the ground insensible. On recovering, he found himself lying, g.-igged and bound, to the bottom of the coach, which was being driven furiously Defenseless aa a sheep borne to the shambles, he awaited his fate with as much resignation as be could muster. Hours seamed to pass before the ve- hicle came to a etop, when thedoru was opened aud be was lifted out in silence by two stout men. He now s.iw by the glimmering starlight, that they were standing on the end uf a long a other extremity of which was hidden in darkness Rocking on the waves almost under their feet lay a small row.-boat. Into this, still without a word being ep >ken. he was transferred by the same bunds and it WES made fast to the stern of a tailing which lav L-hisa tiy with all her set. captors cliir.bcd nbnurd ihe Lit- ter cr.-ifr, whose anchor was immediate- ly weighed, and she stood out to sea. lowing Mr. Young, alone and helpless behind her. Before morning the boat was cast off, the sailing vessel quickly disappeared I'rotn his view, and the unfortunate uicichatit found himself drifting, with- out oars or provisions, at the incrcy of When day broke ho hnd i-tieceoded in freeing one of his hand.- and shortly after released himself from all his fastenings. He now discovered that his pockets had been rifled and his watch and wul- let taken, together with the keys of his office door and safe. On tne morning following Mr. Young's abduction. Mrs Comfit, Ins housekeep- er, awuited iu vain his appearance ut the breakfast table. Never before, during the fideen years she had lived with him, had he beet ten minutes be- hind time. Of course, he might be in- disposed. With some trepidation she went up stairs und knocked at his. cham- ber door. The summons, aguin aud again repeated, awakened no response He might have gone out for a walk, though such hud never been his habit.. An hour passed, and she grew seriously alarmed. Finally, when a business ac- quaintance of Mr. Young's called to in quire why1 his store remained closed, Mrs. Comfit piocured assistance, aud her master's door wus broken open. A careful search of the apartment only re- sulted in showing that it had apparent- ly not been occupied during the pre- ceding night. Days and weeks rolled on and noth- ing wus seen or heard of the missing merchant. Advertisements appeared in the lending journals, offering a liber- al reward for information concerning him but none was forthcoming. The case created considerable excitement as well in the community at iurge, us Mr. Young's immediate connec- tions, but all attempts to unravel the mystery proved unavailing and when, one morning, his office safe was found open, and robbed of its valuable con- tents, the conclusion wus generally ar- rived at ho hud been foully dealt with, uud that his reappearance was not to bo looked for. A distant relative of the lost man came forward, instituted the necessary proceedings, and took quiet possession of the property which Mr. Young hud toiled through so many yours to a mass. After throe years of this suffering. he effected hit escape by the aid of a fellow slave, un Englishman, with whom he was souiutiuics allowed to po fishing, nnd with whom, under cover of niirht, he flung himself overboard, and swam to the opposite coast for Spain, where they found themselves with no posses- sions but their clothes on their back. They managed to make their way to the nearest seaport town, whence they intended, if possible to procure a pas-s- age to the United States All went well, a ship was sain found, which in a few days was lo weigh anchor for New York, and on which their sen-ices were at once engaged for the voyage. Almost on the eye of their emburka- ti.m, a furirful murder wan committed in the house where the fugitives wuru lodging Circumstances pointed strong- ly toward 'hem as the perpetrators, nnd they were arrested on suspicion. Pcor, fiic'iidleps, arid igmirunt of the language of their persecutors, they were unable to make an adequate defense, and were summarily found gnxitj. .Mr. Young's The Hanging of Witches. The hanging of witches in Kugland ceased, we believe, in the year 16852, in which year, three persons, according to Hutchinson, were executed nt Kxcter for witchcraft, the historian remarking that, I suppose these are the three. lust that have been hanged in England." It would sceni, however, that Hutohin- son was mistaken in his conjecture, in supposing that this most abhorrent cus- tom ceased in England tine hundred nnd ninety-four years ago iiecording to Dr I'arr, two witches were hung at Northampton, in 1705 and, in 1712, other witches suffered.the same lute at the snuic place Now, the England of one hundred and sixty-three years ago, as represented by its edu- cated classes, had, we maintain, just about ns good a claim to be considered enlightened (on the matter of witch- craft) aa the England of tho prefent day; nud yet vhe superstitious laws against witchcraft were not efficed from the statute book of our mother land before the je.-ir The pulpit, unfortunate companion was executed, it is true, eontinued to launch forth its Id-iist Hen Confidence is everything hushund and wife and m woqitn, and dcsirds above nil thingi tobetrttfteBi.'

Af'ier he had undergone the lingering horrors of this worst of punishuiei.t for five yeurs, the real murderer was made known by a deathbed confession and Mr. Young was jset at liberty. His story had excited the active Fjmpathy uf' several humane individuals, :md he found no diffisuliy in procuring means of trat.sportation to his own country In a fow weeks he otico uioie trod the fctrcets of New York, nearly eight yeurs from the time of his enforced de- parture but he returned to find him- self a bi-ggar.

Of course, to this ex- tent and no was the witchcraft of the period we have named carried nnd right it wax. therefore, on the part of England's Legislature, that they should abolish the death penalty in cases of witchcraft, substituting iu its place the more appropriate punishment of'' iuipriponnient and hard for persons using any subtle, crafty means or device, by palmistry, or other- wise, to deceive Majesty's What should we think of a Lord Chief Justice of the present dav who should, from the bench, address a jury in lan- guage as the following '-That there are such ertatures as witches.

Perhaps, the most that can be said of them (the clergymen alluded to) is, that their weak-mindedness was more than commensurate with their views as to what constituted rational piety, in re- gard to I'arris, deetitu'e as he was of every attribute essential to the make up" of n decent human thing, leaving out of question all clerical considera- tions, alt fhat we can cay is, that he was an unmitigated brute.

A Persian philospher being asked by what method he had acquired so much knowledge, answered, Hy not allow- ing shame to prevent me from asking questions when I was ignoraut."
