I heard the tramp of horses feet and the jobs of men in a very Short time which la very Good reason for concluding that of amp a not secreted himself a minute too they in Sod the spot where he Lay lout halting and Hastings breathed More by when the Echo of their shouts was lost be distance. 1 Lime dragged on slowly. The ground was Lemely cold and Damp from the effects of Point rain and added to the unpleasant. A of hib situation. He dared not stir for of attracting the attention of some per who might be lurking in the Vicinity his stiffened limbs began to pain him . For several Days he had not been Well and if al t that he we As rabidly becoming worse. Re chills ran Over him his head was hot 1 ached badly and a general languor per led his whole system. What should he do a Vas now quite dark but unfortunately for i the Moon shone brightly and he feared no seen if he attempted leaving his pres a position. So for two More Long Hovirs he Lay there benumbed with cold and growing to much worse that he feared without assistance to would die. But if it was1 dangerous to go it was equally dangerous to re main. To to hanged for a spy was not a very pleasant idea to contemplate and he. Groaned at the thought of dying there alone. At this moment he remembered i Avion seen a Small Cabin at a Short distance. He would seek it throw himself Pori the mercy of the inmates and beg assistance and Protection. K. He pushed aside the Brush cautiously and after glancing from Side to Side hurriedly crept a Little Way upon his feet and then gradually raised himself to an upright position. This was not accomplished without severe Effort his limbs wore weak and cramped and to tottered As he his head Felt to Light and dizzy that it was some minutes before he could recollect in what direction the Cabin was situated but his mind became somewhat Olearer at length and he moved slowly Forward. A suffering much bodily pain and wearily dragging one foot after the other he saw a. Light twinkling in the distance which indicated the proximity of the lowly he did not know whether the occupants were whigs or. Torios but to trusted in Providence and went Forward More hopefully. To approached the Cabin bit paused at hearing the bound of voices. Taking a few More noiseless Steps he was enabled to glance through a Rudo window and perceived two men and two women Bitting within. The Young officer was about to Knock at the door when the word a spy reached his ears causing him to forego his intention and listen to hear More. 41 am quite confident we shall succeed Baid one. 4 the Reward is Worth trying for at any rate returned tho other. 4 Flat will be done yith him if he should be captured a asked the youngest of the two females. No matter 1�?T said the elder of the two men. Abruptly. A 4 they wont be Likely to let him go again added Hie companion with a significant shrug of the shoulders. 4 hell be treated As spies usually Are probably Middle aged woman who had not yet spoken. The younger shuddered and looked thought Ful. 41 wish this unnatural War was ended it so brutalized the human character she said earnestly after a pause. 4 the sooner the rebels Are conquered the quicker it will be ended said one of tho men 4 so you be it is our duty to catch this spy who is Saidi to be very cunning and useful in his Way. Lie can the a great distance off and As soon As we get rested we must take to the Woods and Hunt him Down the other gave his Hearty consent to this proposal and talking Over their plans together both men left the Cabin and passed so near to our Heio that by raising their hands they might have touched him but the darkness which had succeeded the Moons departure favored him and he remained undiscovered. A a Alting until to could no longer hear tha footsteps nor voices of the retreating figures he stepped softly to. The door and tapped. The Latch was raised and a voice demanded 4 who a there?�?T1. 4 a Friend one at least who Hab not tho Power to injure you was the reply. The door opened wider and the Pale Haggard face of the applicant was exposed to the woman who scrutinized him steadily and closely. A a Como in she said briefly. 41 am in distress said Hastings 41 apply to you because you Are a woman and i cannot forget that a woman was first at the sepulchre of Jesus. I am sick weary hungry and sorely pressed by my enemies. I am the american spy for whom a Reward is offered. Yogi can save me or deliver me into the hands of Yoila husband or those Vito have gone in purse it of tiie. A the Mother and daughter exchanged Glan Ces but neither spoke and Hastings anxiously awaited the decision of his Fate. The woman who had opened the door now signified by emotion of the hand that he should enter. He did so and a seat was placed for him beside the daughter Whoso sympathies were obviously enlisted. She glanced at Hie dejected co i ton Anoe and noted his faltering Steps she limbs trembling with weakness 4 we can give you food but our Protection will Avail bit Little after May husbands return Baid the woman. 4 can you not conceal me a asked Hastings earnestly. A heaven will Reward you for the deep the Mother looked at her daughter and the two conversed together in a Low voice. 1 we will do what we Oak said the former briefly As she placed refreshments be fore him and signified to him to eat. 4 do not Stop to talk she added quickly As the Young officer endeavoured to express his gratitude. 4 there is no time to lose and food will do you More Good than anything else a. A Hastings did not wait for a second bidding and the nutritious beverage soon had the effect to renew his strength and inspire fresh courage. His head Felt less Giddy the cheerful fire warmed his stiffened limbs and he would certainly have fallen asleep in his chair had not a feeling of dread lest the men should suddenly return caused him to look often anxiously toward tho window. # Tobej will be gone two hours said the youngest female As if to reassure him on that signified his thanks and looked at the fair speaker so attentively that a Crimson glow stole Over her expressive countenance making her look More interesting than before. Lie forgot for the moment himself has illness the danger he had incurred the risk he now ran everything in contemplating her symmetrical figure regularity of features and the benevolent kindness that beamed from her eyes. He was startled from his revery by the Barking of a dog. 4 you Are lost a she exclaimed. A father is near by 1�?T Hastings started to his feet and looked hurriedly about for some Mode of egress besides the door by which he had entered. The Young girl Shook her head and her Cheek paled with terror. Hastings knew that discovery was inevitable if he remained where he was arid that the result would to equally fatal if he ventured to leave the cab in. A the Young girl stood an instant As if spell bound when the voices came nearer and nearer. Suddenly she sprang towards a door which opened into a dark closet. 4 go in 1�?T she whispered 4 and secrete yourself behind those clothes. V. The officer mechanically obeyed and the door was quickly closed and fastened upon him while his deliverer with uncommon self Possession placed herself in the Ohair he bad Drew up to the Small table on which food had been placed and very deliberately commenced eat Rig. She had hardly done so when her father and his companion entered the Cabin both looking somewhat ill Humoured and disappointed. ,. A what Are you up and a atm for Alottio asked the former abruptly regarding the Young girl with a look of astonishment and displeasure. A because in a hungry was tho unhesitating reply.4 Well and so Are we hungry girl so get something Quick for we to got to ride Aziiz in Miles yet that is if the fellow done to disappoint us again. Confound him 1 we might have been on the right track by this time if the horses had been forthcoming he muttered As Lottie As he called her busied herself in placing eatables before them As she had been Bidden. While this had been transpiring the Mother had silently left the Cabin entered an outbuilding and was prop ring a comfortable place in which to conceal Hastings before her husbands return and this will account for her absence when his proximity had been so opportunely discovered by the Young girl. While the men were satisfying the demands of appetite she entered but started Bank in alarm what a change in affairs the last fifteen minutes had wrought. Hettie caught her Eye and a warning glance checked the exclamation that was on her lips anti recalled her usual presence of mind. A Well a she said interrogative by approach a ing the we be had to wait for horses and the Rascal will give us the slip if we done to ride for dear life returned her husband i say Ben he added with an impatient gesture 4 have it you almost done eating a. A just finished replied Ben pushing Back his Ohair and buttoning his coat. 4i�?Tm All 4 Well go then As soon As i got another hat and he approached the closet which contained the object of their solicitude and Pursuit. The speaker stepped in and commenced searching for the article he had named. The Reader can imagine the sensations of r hero Asho crouched behind a Pilo of bedding trembling lest a Suddon movement of the Man should expose Bis person. To was certain that his heart beat lord enough to be heard Rand when key eur the clothes move before him Hie gave up All for lost. The Eil options of the Young girl were none the less intense her face assumed an Ashy Hue her feet seemed glued to the floor and her breath almost stopped As her Eye marked each emotion of her father. Asho advanced near the Corner where Bhe know Hastings stood she placed her hands before her eyes and Sank into a chair. But discovery did not ensue. The hat wat found at length and when Hettie raised her eyes she breathed More freely. Her father stood without the closet while his companion was assuring him that if much More time was wasted they might As Well give up the undertaking. A where is he a inquired the woman when the men had gone. # # to Ali fifi Jap lied the daughter Point no to the closet. It is a Providence Index dlr was the fer vent ejaculation of the Mother As she comprehended Liis narrow escape. No time was lost in conducting Hastings to the out building we have named. It was entered but Seldom Little used and being so the rendezvous of the Kings troops would not be Likely to be subjected to a very thorough search by his enemies who probably believed him much farther off. Id this place he remained several Days receiving the Best of care from both Mother and daughter who visited him As often a they could without attracting when his strength had. Partly returned and to was Able to travel his generous protectors furnished him with a suitable disguise and by Means of the husbands absence were enabled to assist him a considerable distance upon his journey. He encountered Many difficulties and dangers and Felt himself far fro Rii secure until be had passed the British lines and knew he had nothing More to fear. But he did not forget the Maiden Whoso prompt act Iii saved his life. After the close i of the War he met her again under More a 8picious circa most amp does and pleasant acquaintance terminated in Happy marriage. A cast a Dine Tor Youngman poor and dejected stood watching some anglers on the Bank of a Stream. At length approaching a Basket Well filled with Fine fish he sighed a if Nofa i had these i would be Happy. A could sell them at a fair Price arid buy my food and a. V a �?�441 will give you As Good fish a said the owner who. Chanced to Over hear his words if you will do me a trifling Quot and what is that a asked the other eagerly. 41 Only tend this line till i come Bank i wish to go on a Short the proposal was accepted. The old fish Erman was so Long absent that the Young Man began to be impatient meanwhile however the hungry fish Ena Ppd at the Hook and pie Yodogi Man lost his depression in the excitement of pulling them in and when the owner of the Lino returned he had caught a Large number. Counting out from them As Many As were in the Basket and presenting them to the Young Man the old Fisherman said a a i fulfil my Promise for the fish Ycu have caught to teach you that whenever you see others earning what you need to waste no time in fruitless wishes but cast a Lino for Prosperity hardens tho heart As continual Sunshine does the Earth but when one is softened by the tears of sorrow and the other by genial showers they yield those fruits which the necessities of Man require. Goodness is twice blessed in what it gives and what it receives. The peace and Comfort we impart to others is restored to our own bosom by the satisfaction of an approving conscience As the Vapours which ascend through tha it Day fall Back at night in refreshing Dews upon the Earth. Tight Young Man recently having succeeded after much persuasion in getting a kiss from a girl went and told of it. One of her acquaintances met her and said. A so Mary John says that you let him Kies you.�?T. 41 did let him after he had tease me an hour but it was a tight squeeze even then. A so to 1�?T exclaimed the other a he did not mention that. He Only spoke of the kiss but did not say anything about the squeeze is la the face of the Sun you May see gods Beauty in the fire you May feel his heart warming in the water his gentleness to refresh you it is the Dew of heaven that makes your Fields give you , \ a love.
