He was told the next day that one of them had come to a miserable end. cried the gray headed patriot, "did he leave his post did he run from the ene- my "Oh no, sir; worse than lie fell among the slain, fighting like a hero."

The colonel received a severe sword gash m his left arm; but he drew his second pistol that moment with his right, placed it between the Englishman's things, we asked him what quantity of these delicious articles his farm produced annually, and how much he usually laid out for labor, From the answer to these questions, we learned two impor- tant facts, viz that Mrs. Ford had pcr- eyes, and killed him by a shot in the formed almost the entire labor of the head. Colonel McLane now stopped the flow of his own blood, by crawling into a mill pond, and at last reached the American camp. Mr. Miller first pub- lished his famous lectures on the Second Corning of Christ, the subject produced great excitement in some parts of the State of Maine; and those who were of a slender constitution, and who were sub- ject to nervous irritability, were much alarmed. Tt was said there was an aged devout man living in the region of the Kermebcc.who, though somewhat eccen- tric in his manners, was, on account of his devotion to religious duties, m his closet, his family and neighborhood, con- brought in he wept over it. called for a bowl of water, and a napkin; the blood away Avith his own trembling hands, and thanked God, that his son had died for his country. As soon as Washington heard that had left Philadelphia, he broke up his quarters at Valley Forge, and fol- loAved hard after him. A hot battle Avas fought on the 2Sth, near Monmouth Court- house. It did not cease till the evening. Washington slept upon his cloak under a tree, expecting more fighting in the morning; but the British marched off in the night. Sixty of their soldiers AArere found dead on the battle field, with- out wounds. Fatigue and the excessive heat had killed them. In the beginning of this battle, one Molly Pitcher was occupied in carrying water from a spring to a battery, Avhcre her husband was employed in loading and firing a cannon. He AA-as shot dead at last, and she saw him fall. An officer rode up, and ordered off the. cannon. "It can be of no use said he. But Molly stepped up, offered her sendees, and took her husband's place, to the as- tonishment of the army. She fought well, and half pay for life was given her by Congress. She wore an epaulette, and Avas called Captain Molly, ever after. In the midst of the fight there was a soldier Avhose gunlock Avas knocked off by a bullet. At the same instant, a sol- dier at his side Avas killed. He picked up the dead man's musket, and was pre- paring to fire, Avhcn a bullet catered the muzzle of the gun, and twisted the barrel into the shape of a cork scrcAv. Although the bullets were flying around him like hail stones, he deliberately knelt doAvn upon the spot, unscreAvcd the lock from the musket in his hand, and fastened it to his OAvn gun, which he had thrown aAA'ay. In a feAV minutes, he was again prepared, and then engaged in the- deadly conflict. No other great battles Avcre fought during the campaign of 1778. The ar- mies only molested each other by sending out small detachments.

When the rumor of the second Advent reached the village. and be- came the topic of conversation, a man of the above named temperament, took the alarm, and hastily ran to the good old man, exclaiming, '-Sir. they say that the Avoiid is coming to an end that the dead arc going to be raised, and that Christ is coming to judge the world in 1843! They say. sir, that a Mr. Miller, of New Yoik, has been studying on this subject for many years and has an accurate reck- oning on all the prophecies and on the book of Revelation; and he says that all these things will certainly take place at that time, and they say, too, that there are a great many who believe it.'' '-But what do you think about it, sir 1 Do you think that Christ will come at that time '-I do not replied the pood old man "1 Avill ask the Lord about it, and see what he will tell me." So the man returned home. But anxious to know the result, he soon after came ao-ain, to inquire of the Oracle, and meet- ing the old veteran of the cross, said, "AVell, sir, have you asked the Lord whether Christ would come to judge the world in lbi'3 or not He gravely an- swered, "I have." the inquirer, 'what continued did the Lord tell you --He told replied the good old man.

Prompt in the fulfillment of his engagement, we re- ceived from him, a few days since, a written statement, from which we copy as follows pounds of butter and cheese, exclusive of what was used in the family, and some sold to families, of which no account was given, made by one woman (Mrs. Ford) during a term of sixteen years last past except a very small pro- portion made by others during short in- tervals while she was absent or out of health. The amount of money for which these articles Aye re sold, was This is an average of (i.SOOA pounds of butter and cheese per year, selling for 30 and all made by the hands of one woman." Such a wife is an invaluable treasure to her husband. What would some of our modern fine ladies say to this What would the fashionable Miss think, if told on her bridal eve that she would be required, during the next sixteen years, to manufacture 7000 pounds of butter and cheese every summer If told that. instead of spending all her husband's money for silks and Inccs and trumpery. to enable her to make a great bustle in I he ball room, or at a fashionable wafer- ing place, she would be expected by her own industry, to add 8500 a year to the wcal'h of the family, how would her del- cate thou hands be raised n ht Connecticut horror at the "Why, said a yesterday on the Levee to an acquaintance of his, "Avhy John, the back of your coat is cred oA'er Avith molasses." slipped on that infernal platform, ft'' "ji my back, and have, spoil my my back, and new coat.

I will tell yoxt where 1 think lies the secret of aristocratic beauty in England. It is in the lofty inainlein of the head and the proud carriage, if you remark, in all those head set back, the chest elevated and ex- panded, and the whole port and expres- sion that of pride and conscious superi- ority. This, mind 3-0u, though the re- sult of qualities in the character, is not the work oi" a day nor perhaps of a single generation. The effect of expanding the breast and preserving the back straight, and the posture generally erect, is the high health and consequent beauty of those portions of the frame, and the phy- sical advantage, handed down with the pride which produced it, from mother to child, the race gradually has become per- fect in those points, and the look of pride and high bearing VJ is now easy, natural, and unconscious. Glance your eye around, and you will see that there is not a defective bust, and hardly a head ill set on, in the room.

Kinjc appointed Secretary. The Inquirer says Mr. Gaily, from Cincinnati, Avas called upon to state the object of the meeting, Avhich he did in a brief speech of much eloquence. The vice was depicted in faithful colors, and some of its terrible effects delineated in a vivid and forcible manner, Mr. Jonathan Green then related some of his adventures and experience Avhile a "sporting gentleman." He exposed some of the arts and tricks of these gen- tlemen, Avhich the uninitiated could never have thought of. Having had no little experience in the fascinating, but rui- nous, and destructive vice, and being thor- oughly convinced of its deplorable effects, he is Ave.ll prepared, in ;i plain, unvar- nished style, to do the subject ample jus- tice. The chairman, Mr. Wickliffe, favored the audience with some very appropriate remarks, Avhen an invitation being given, eighty-seven subscribed a pledge to ab- stain from participation in any game of chance Avhere any thing can be won or losl. A will you be kind enough to settle this bill said a gentle- man a few days ago to one of our first ladies. "Uill! why 1 dont owe you any thing." "That piece of lace, ma- dam, which you toolcAvith you from the store has not been paid for." "Oh oh 1 did not think of that." Something like the above Avas the conversation winch passed between Mr. B., a merchant of Baltimore street, and one of his customers.
