The Jasmine Flower Jjo it Manuela a cried the father and son together on seeing the Young girl looked in turn at each of them and fixed la or of a few Harare you doing Cousin a looking at his equipment from head to foot. A Cousin a answered Stefano fixed to the spot a Cousin i a going. A he. A going a cried Manuela springing towards him. Is going Uncle a she added interrogating Pedro. A a a yes my child a replied the old Man with a sigh. A a a that astonishes you Manuela a said the Young Man with a tone of bitter irony. A bought i not to go away from heir to whom j have had the misfortune to say i love when her heart ice bugs to another a to another he knows All a thought the Young girl. A a a but those arms which you carry 1�?� she resumed. A you then going to the the War a a yes Cousin it is Liere it is said that there Are the most chances for forgetting or though these words pronounced in a Low voice Pedro and Manuela heard them. A my Friend in murmured the old Man with a supplicating gesture. A you speak of dying a cried the affrighted Young a my god what does All this signify a she added turning from her Uncle to her Cousin. The poor girl foresaw some misfortune of the cause of which she was yet ignorant and remorse and i quietude together agitated her soul. A Stefano in she repeated a what is the matter i have heard a noise in this Village. Are our lives threatened Are you going to defend us with those arms for pity answer me in a you have nothing to fear a said the Young Man a fall your wishes on the contrary Are about to be fulfilled and my absence will Complete a your absence Cousin a exclaimed Manuela with the strongest grief. A alas can you thus speak to me a she continued repressing her tears. A Adieu Cousin a replied Stefano with an Effort a be As Happy As i shall be unhappy Adieu my father till we meet again a he added pressing Don Pedro to his heart. A Adieu my son a stammered the old Man. A come courage 1�?� he said in a firmer voice a serve the King Well my Friend and remember that no one has lost All Consolation so Long As Honor remains Adieu a the father and son again embraced and Don Stefano rapidly hastened towards the door. I a the is going he is really going a said Manuela who had watched this scene with trembling and tears. A and he leaves me without pressing my hand without even turning towards me a single look of Friendship of it is frightful it is impossible a she cried in a Resolute voice Rushing towards her Cousin. A Stefano a she said to him with a convulsive trembling a you will not go thus a a what does she do great god a said the old Man to himself compelled by weakness and emotion to lean on a chair. A you detain me Cousin a stammered the stupefied Young Man. A yes a she continued sizing his hand wildly a yes remain Stefano you cannot leave me so abruptly a a a i a i beg of you a leave me i want none of your pity. A a pity just heaven when i beg on my Knees a a Adieu Manuela no wait at least for a few moments. A a wait a cried the Young Man with a sort of madness a wait to see you in the arms of another. Never a a nah a exclaimed Manuela dropping her failing hands a always another always another a then seeing him on the threshold about to disappear she recalled him with a despairing voice madly stretching out her hands to him. A and if it is you whom i love Stefano if i have never loved any one but you a # if a Thunderbolt had fallen in the Hall it would not have produced a greater effect than this exclamation. Pedro heard a you recollect the Day of the Harvest a suddenly asked the Young girl with tender coquetry. A a yes that fatal Day when you had the cruelty to reject my bouquet a a i did not wholly reject it did you not perceive it Stefano a a can it be possible a a i secretly detached a Jasmine Flower which i had in my bosom As a sacred treasure. See a she added showing to her Cousin the Little White petals All faded a they have not left that place since i put them there. I shall always keep them As a remembrance of your first avowal a a ooh give them to me give them to me a said Stefano a let my lips touch them As they have touched your heart a and he covered he devoured with kisses the Little Jasmine Flower and the cherished hand which held it. Chapter xvii. The waking of Honor. In the meanwhile the noise of the guerillas sensibly came nearer their researches had brought them to the nearest houses and the Clanger of sabres and i muskets was heard through the open window. This signal to which Stefano and Manuela were deaf struck the ear of Don Riaz and caused him to Start in his chair. A just heaven a he cried recollecting do he Villiers. And the brow of the old castilian blushed at the thought of perjury. Rising immediately with an Effort and supporting himself on his staff he hastened towards the two delighted lovers and Laid his hand on Stefanos shoulder. A my son a he said to him in a solemn voice a my son. And lieutenant a the Villiers a a the lieutenant a repeated the Young Man. A your guest unhappy one your guest whom you betray a a nah a said Stefano All at once recovering himself. A it is True a he added in a Low tone looking at his Cousin. The delirium of the Young girl was such that she had not even heard Pedro. A Ify Manuela a said the Young Man trembling a Manuela a a what is it Stefano a a Manuela you have told me you loved Only me and yet. A a a yet a a you have a betrothed Manuela a a a do he Villiers a cried the Young girl starting. A Pardon me great god 1 i had forgotten him a she continued falling on her Knees. A if that betrothed a resumed Stefano raising her a should come and claim the accomplishment of your Promise you would Tell him would you not that gratitude alone and not love prompted your engagement to him that your hand promised without knowing what you did would now Only belong to him without your heart a a yes a replied Manuela. A i would Tell of but it appears to me that he cannot return now Stefano a a and if he were already Home a asked an imposing voice. Pedro at the same time advanced Between his son and his Niece and before the severe countenance of the old spaniard the eyes of the betrothed fell As before the impersonation of her oath. A father a stammered Stefano trying to disarm the look which crushed him. A silence a continued the old Man a love has spoken too much Here it is time that duty should be heard if Lieut. Do he Villiers was in this House Manuela a a just heaven a a if More faithful than you he should now claim what you promised by your fathers death bed which he had sought even Here at the peril of his life i ask you in my turn my Niece what would you answer him a Don Pedro pronounced these words in so imposing a tone that Manuela imagined she heard the voice of her own father and saw him As if Arisen from the dead before her. Trembling and subjected like the criminal at the feet of his judge she replied turning her eyes from Stefano and fixing them on the imperious old Man a i would say to lieutenant do he Villiers that i am his betrothed before god and Man and that i will never be another a so Long As he shall live to be my husband a a keep your Promise and die very Good a replied Don Riaz extending his hand to his Niece a come then my child prepare to receive your betrothed a at the same time he led her away towards the Little chamber whither Stefano in vain attempted to follow them. A it is my happiness which you take from me father a he cried. A it is your Honor which i give Back to you my son a replied Pedro. A watch Over the lieutenant a he added a there Are the guerillas a the guerillas in fact were leaving the neighbouring House and uniting around the area and barn to guard the issues. a and on the other a a a Young girl and an old a bring the old Man Here a continued the Captain. A the must either be miserly or timid we will frighten him or bribe him a he added to himself. A and you my Friend a he added to Stefano whilst they were executing his orders a you will mount to the upper Story with my lieutenant and these three men you will open All the doors for them which they shall Tell you to open a and in general do All they shall command you to a a spare neither threats nor promises to gain this Young Man a he then murmured in the ear of the officer slipping into his hand a purse in which pieces of Gold were heard jingling together. A you know that i would recover our prisoner again at any Price Don Stefano was tempted to resist the injunction of the Captain but he reflected that it would Render him suspected still More and he preceded the lieutenant and the three men up the stairs which led out of a Corner of the room. Chapter Xix. The double trial. At the same moment Don Pedro came out of the chamber conducted by two guerillas and supported on his staff. A my friends a said he with calmness and dignity a i am surprised that you should thus trouble the repose of my House. My name alone might teach you that i am As faithful a servant of Spain and the King As you can be yourselves. It is not the son of a victim of the Constitution an old adversary of Mina who can forget what he owes to his a that is Well said replied the Captain. A unfortunately it is a Little vague and that will not suffice. The Point is to be Clear and precise and to answer a simple question did not a Volunteer officer of Christina come to your House two hours since and has not that officer been hidden Here by you or yours a a a you can search for him a replied Don Pedro tranquilly sitting Down in his chair. An original legislator. There May be readers who will suppose the annexed recital to be an exaggeration but at least three Hundred persons who were in the Capitol of the state of Mississippi on the third Day of March 1846, can testify that this account Falls far Short of the reality. The clerks of the House As in duty astonished at his coldness the Captain tried to intimidate Mous purse and the Walls of this House do not fall upon him. Him to crush him a these Walls which never saw treason a if you Are not sincere you play your part very Well a before his and i a i a great god bound Down by weakness a realized with horror i cannot he said looking him full in the face. A yet i believe you do not really feel As unconcerned As you a you deceive yourself Young Man a replied Don Riaz shaking his head. There was a Long silence which was interrupted by a shot time he fell Back into his chair hardly finding strength to fired in the upper Story. Every body in the Hall started and sigh. The Captain sent a Man to learn the cause of it. A impossible impossible alas a he then stammered with a a it is probable a thought he a that the conversation with grief mingled with anger the Young Hidalgo grows j then grief finally gained the Mastery his venerable brow a the unhappy men a said Don Pedro at the same time fell upon his hands and tears trickled Between his fingers a if they should do any harm to my son a a my god my god a he said sobbing a i have lived too a a a Long Grant me death a All at once these groans reached the ear of Stefano and appeared to restore him to animation. A who is there a he said looking wildly found the Hall. And for the first time he perceived Don Riaz. A my father a he exclaimed with a cry of anguish. Then suddenly turning his head to hide the horrible confusion which was burning his brow a the was there just heaven a he added in a Low tone a the was there and has without doubt seen at these words a my father a so Well known and lately so Sweet the old Man shuddered in his chair with rage As if a galvanic Power added to his anger had Given him strength. A do not Call me your father a he cried turning his inflamed eyes towards Stefano a do not Call me your father the Captain judged the occasion favourable to return to the charge upon the old castilian. A Don Pedro Riaz a he said a listen to me. If the Frenchman whom we seek is not in your House you at least know where he is. You know zounds a he continued anticipating the reply of the old Man. A now a he added in a Low tone after having assured himself by a glance that in the House As Well As on the person of Pedro everything denoted a Lack of riches a now to induce you to protect so discreetly a stranger who can Only inspire hatred in you some secret agreement must have taken place Between you by which he has promised you a Rich a Money a said Pedro a you Are not obliged to acknowledge it a the Captain resumed in an insinuating tone a but it is Well known that at your age a Lound sum has some value How much would for you cannot be my son no when the virtuous Parquita a watch him Well till we have had time to arrive at the place indicated if he makes a single suspicious movement inform us by blowing out his brains with a pistol and if discharge of musketry announce that he has not deceived us. Leave him immediately and rejoin us proceeding along the a it is understood Captain a said the two guerillas. _ and they immediately resumed their places on the right bound entered the report of the member from Green on the and left of Stefano while the others noiselessly went ont of j journal but on the next morning it was expunged by the House at the request of the member himself. The Best subject which came before the legislature during the session of 1846, was the All absorbing one in regard to the charter of a a Mclnnis the owner of the ferry was a member himself being the representative of the county of Green where the ferry is located and through All the trying scenes of getting the charter through that honorable representative bore himself in a manner and with a spirit which to say the least were remarkable. On the first broaching of the subject some opposition was made. The representative from Clarke an adjoining county conceived that the charter interfered with the rights of other citizens who had ferries 011 the same River the Chick Sahay and 011 the first Reading of the Bill this same representative or. Moody moved its rejection. This motion brought Ivor. Innis to his feet. He had never spoken before but in this one Effort his Maiden speech he More than compensated for his former Remis Ness a i Hope a said he addressing the House but not the speaker a i Hope you la not reject my ferry Bill. Gentlemen in a bound to keep a f4py. Them other men that a got ferries near me ainu to bound at All. They be got some Little Flats to git across the fiver on when they want to go to Mill and when its convenient for Mem to put a traveller Over they do it and when it ainu to they done to. But in a bound to keep a ferry. Ask or. Moody he knows All about it. He knows in be kept ferry there across the Chickas Hayfor thirty years past. My ferry a right on the big Road to Mobile and every where. There a three mails crosses at my gentlemen in a bound to keep ferry. Or. Moody knows i live at Leaksville right at the court Houey and these Fellers that keep the other Little ferries they turn my boats Loose and bore Auger holes in Mem and sink Mem i Hope gentlemen you la pass my Bill. In be just got a letter from my son last night a telling me that them Fellers has been Boring More holes in my boat. Gentlemen in a bound to keep ferry. I always Cross every body that comes in a bound to do and i always keep Good Flats Well painted with after this Appeal and the necessary readings being gone through the Bill passed the House by a Large majority and was sent to the Senate. Here a Noval scene of cured unprecedented perhaps in the annals of legislation even of Mississippi legislation. By a Resolution of the Senate the representative from Greene was invited to address that August body upon the merits of his Bill which he did after the manner indicated in the above sketch of his remarks in the House. After the grave senators had sufficiently amused themselves with the matter they passed the Bill. The worthy representative immediately hurried to his seat in the House and although the clerk was Reading in the midst of a document the delighted member exclaimed a emr. Speaker my ferry Bill has passed the Senate and i want the House to the Arear door and advanced with careful step towards the ruin silently Cocking their muskets chapter xxi. The malediction. A Dull silence reigned in the Hall where Don Pedro and his son alone remained with the two guerillas. Stefano standing before the window Between his two sentinels believed himself still alone with them and did not turn his Haggard eyes from the Road. Pedro weak and speechless in his chair resembled a Man who had just lost at a single blow All that he possessed on Earth. Alas the old castilian was weeping for his most precious treasure the Honor of his name betrayed by his own son for some minutes his thoughts were Only a sort of chaos in the midst of which were mingled grief and shame doubt and despair tardy regret for having had Confidence in Stefano and the not less useless desire of preventing the effect of his treason. The head of Don Riaz at that moment resembled those Sublime weeping figures which we see in the pictures of the Spanish masters and which Joanne the actor reproduced so faithfully in the character of Ruiz Gomez in the fourth act of Herrina a it is True than a murmured the old Man rousing himself like one who beholds the fulfilment of a dreadful dream. A it is True then just heaven my son has betrayed his guest my son has sold his rival Don Stefano Riaz do la Sarga holds in his hand the Price of blood and his own blood the blood of the Riaz did not rebel in his veins and shame did not stifle him when his fingers touched that in a i cannot hasten to repair the crime of my son thus speaking in a Low and suffocated voice he Mads vain efforts to raise himself 011 his trembling Knees. Each you have Senor to say a word or make a sign a a hold your Tongue Captain and done to let it be known that you dare. A a nobody hears us Are fifty doubloons enough a Don Riaz did not reply a i believe a said one guerilla to another a that our chief is attacking the Good Many a a would you have a Hundred a resumed the a must you have a Hundred and fifty. Two Hundred a Aback i Tell you a cried the indignant Pedro a the Honor of a Noble castilian is not to be sold and it is in vain that you debase yours Here a Perez gave me my fourth son some evil Genius doubtless took him from me and put you in his place in the family Cradle and have taken As of my blood the monster who grew under my paternal caresses the Serpent who warmed himself in my bosom to stifle me. Before my last Day Call me not then your father unhappy Man or rather Tell me that my eyes can 110 longer see nor my ears hear that i have dreamed my son was a Coward a traitor an Assassin Tell me so Stefano Tell me so a the Young Man made a movement to answer and stopped at the sight of his two attendants. The efforts which he made to keep silence appeared to be a old Demon a thought the Captain. A let us try threats a so painful that he came near fainting in his turn and he was then a he added drawing a pistol from his Girdle. I obliged to support himself on the. Arm of a guerilla. He pointed the muzzle at Don Riaz and said in a threat j a what what a the adventurer said to him in a Low tone ening tone a a weakness remorse Well then dont listen to the Good Man a since you treat the offer of Money in this manner Senor a but look rather at that purse which your hand appears to let us see if you please How you will treat this hold with so much indifference. Twenty five pieces of Gold repeated the Captain cock chapter xviii. The domiciliary visit. A what a dream. And what a waking a. Said Stefano passionately with his eyes fixed on the door of the Little chamber. A Manuela avows that she loves me and she adds she will never be mine so Long As do he Villiers shall Long As he shall live and it is i who am to answer for his life with mine when perhaps if i should Only let things take their course. Of despair gives horrible temptations it is enough to drive one mad let me Fly if there is yet time let me leave these places where every thought is a punishment or a perjury let me join and Stop the guerillas before they enter this House. For alas if they should now arrive if they should now ask me where is the enemy they heaven i know not if i should have Resolution. Of let me Fly let me Fly a and taking up his Musket and pistols he was about to Rush bareheaded through the door when he started Back at sight of the Captain of the guerillas who commanded him by a sign to remain. A misfortune it is too late a said the Young Man dropping his arms and falling on a chair a two sentinels before each door and each window a commanded the Captain to the numerous troop which followed him. Then addressing a lieutenant and ten guerillas and striking with his sword on the threshold of the Hail a this is the Only Refuge which can have offered itself to our prisoner a he said a there it is that we must find him if he is hidden in the Village let us enter and seek every where comrades you know that he who shall first Lay hands on the Frenchman will have the Honor of firing the first shot upon him and will receive Twenty doubloons for at the same time he advanced into the Hall and Stefano was instantly surrounded by a dozen men. The two chiefs wore a very imposing costume and which might pass for a uniform but the equipment of the soldiers was of an irregularity which would have appeared ridiculous if their figures and countenances had been less terrible. One was dressed in a peasants Vest joined to military pantaloons another had tight breeches a la Figaro with an ample vast a la Bazile one had covered his head with a Large Capua in a hat with the brim rolled up another wore a Shako placed Over a Linen Cap. The same variety was observable in their arms a collection of All kinds of murderous instruments from the carbine to the Lance and from the sword to the stiletto. They were obviously a troop of adventurers hastily formed As much for pillage and massacre As to defend the country against the constitutionalists. The Captain however had an appearance of disinterestedness and wealth which indicated a Graver and More worthy character and it was easy to see that although degraded by Only the terrible explosion and Stefano saw Only the Daz circumstances to the Post of chief of a band of guerillas he Ling Flash. Was a Man capable of commanding regular and disciplined a me you love me a he said returning with amazement troops with distinction towards his Cousin while his father overwhelmed with Aston i it was evident besides by his extreme vigilance and the ashment fell Back into his chair. A ooh repeat that word prudent minuteness of his orders that he had made it a Point where is the Frenchman you have hidden a Don Pedro remained silent. A where is the Frenchman ing his pistol. The same silence from Don Riaz. A answer or you Are a dead Man where is lieutenant do Hervi Liers a the old Man was unmoved and the pistol was on the Point of being fired when the guerillas who had just ascended the stairs hastily descended. A Stop a he cried to the Captain or at least is going to be a All new by Saint James there is something substantial and comforting in Don Stefano would have sunk into the Earth rather than have heard these words. His face turned from purple to Violet and without addressing a word to his father he again fixed his eyes on the Highway. Pedro in the mean time had succeeded in rising from his chair and was slowly approaching his son. A who does not even listen to me a he continued seeing him a the Bird is dislodged turn again towards the window. A this Eye cannot leave that i fatal window one might say he watches the Success of a what do i hear a said Pedro quivering from head to his perfidy he looks to see if they reach his rival in time and foot. I he would assure himself that they do not the Captain put his pistol Back into the Girdle and made a sign for the guerilla to go 011. A your prisoner a he continued pointing through a window a is in that ruin which you see at the end of the a in that ruin a said Pedro a the is lost a a How did you learn it a asked the Captain. A by the Young Man who is up stairs with the a by Stefano a cried the old Man becoming Pale with horror. Unhappy Man a he at length exclaimed As he stood at the Side of Stefano a was it is thus May the curse. A the Young Man turned with signs of horror and arrested the arms raised to curse him a no a continued the old castillian disarmed in spite of himself but becoming More and More excited a to curse him would be in effect still to treat him As my son. It is not merely by word of Mouth that i should chastise him my hand my own hand should do Justice upon him yes a he added deliriously a it is my duty to eradicate disgrace a remarkable Man. At a Temperance meeting recently held in Alabama col. Lahman Ousky who had been 23 years a Soldier in the armies of Napoleon Bonaparte addressed the meeting. He arose before the audience tall erect and vigorous with the glow of health upon his Cheek and said you see before you a Man 70 years old. I have fought 200 Battles have 14 wound on my body have lived 30 Days on horse flesh with the bark of Trees for my bread Snow and ice for my drink the canopy of heaven for my covering without stockings or shoes 011 my feet and with Only a few rags for my clothing. In the deserts of Egypt i have marched for Days with a burning Sun upon my naked head feet blistered in the scorching Sand and with eyes nostril and Mouth filled with the dust and with the thirst so tormenting that i have opened the veins of my arms and sucked my own blood do you ask How could i have survived All these horrors i answer that by the kind Providence of god i owe my preservation my health and vigor to this fact that i never drank a drop of spirituous liquors in my life and continued he Baron Larry chief of the medical stall of the French army has stated it As a fact that the 6000 survivors who safely returned from Egypt were All men who abstained from the use of ardent spirits. A nah All a said the chief a it appears that the son is not and crime from my family. A spaniard cannot shrink from so hard to Deal with As the i a duty which a roman has a the lieutenant discovered nothing a resumed the Ger As he murmured these broken words the features of Don Ilia a and noticing in the person an air which excited his i rho a assumed a frightful expression. His eyes seemed Start curiosity told three of us to go and pursue our researches no from their sockets and his White hairs blood erect. The in the Garret of the barn and profited by the occasion to take guerillas who watched him with curiosity were terrified by the villager aside. I was with them i noticed the j his looks. A Large purse of Gold and the muzzle of a pistol were the two j trembling the old Man towered Back to the place he had elements in the bargain. The fellow at first was rather Dif just quilted and extending his hand towards one of his Pis ficut and it was then that the lieutenant shaved his Mous j Tols which remained suspended against the Wall he grasped tache with the shot which you heard. At that stunning i it with a convulsive gesture and was 011 the Point of aiming noise the Young Man was All at once moved he uttered a it at the head of his son when a door opened 011 his right and a singular exclamation and perceived Only too late that we a hand arrested his Arm. A had remarked his trouble. Finally pressed again by the to be continued.

The old castilian had listened to it with an alarm mingled with incredulity. At the last words he could not contain himself and violently interrupted the guerilla. Manuela Pray repeat it let me be certain of having heard a yes i love you a replied the Young girl with tenderness a i love Only you in the world you will then remain a a will i remain a cried Stefano throwing his Musket and pistols far from him and sharing in his turn the delirium of his Cousin a there at your feet till death shall snatch me away you love me great god and he covered her hands with kisses and tears she loves me father and he ran to embrace the old Man and returned again immediately to his Cousin of look at me Manuela look at my face let me read in your eyes that word which gives me life. And for which you have made me wait so Long a a you would not have me waited so Long had i had the courage to Tell you a mildly replied the Young girl a for two months my secret has weighed heavily on my heart a a alas that was also my fault i found you so constrained and reserved that i dared not conceive any Hopes Blind and mad that i was How much precious time have 1 of personal Pride to size his prisoner again and that he was ready the make any sacrifice to accomplish this important object. A my Friend a said he going directly tip to Stefano while the men separated to visit the Chambers a a what were you going to do with those arms if you please were they destined to defend yourself personally or to protect the Chris Tino officer you have hidden Here a a no one is hidden in this House a replied the Hidalgo with the firmness which danger immediately gives to courageous men a a the Riaz de la Sarga Are known throughout the country to be devoted to Spain and Charles v. I have three Brothers enrolled in the Royal army and i took the arms you saw in my hands in order to seek permission to enter your the Captain looked at him with a distrustful Eye and remarked some confusion in his face. A indeed a said he a a very ingenious and amusing subterfuge it was also doubtless for the purpose of joining us Young Man that you threw Down you Musket with lost but we will redeem it henceforth is it not so my j alarm on seeing us enter Here sooner than you expected a beloved a having nothing to answer to this observation the castilian thus speaking he clasped her in his arms and looked on pretended not to have heard it. Lier with Delight. Manuela forgot like him every tiling else 1 a your Man is in this House a the Captain said with ass to give her whole soul to love and enchanted with that mute then addressing the guerillas who were entering from visiting the two Chambers a Well who asked a on that Side a returning two Days ago from one of our most advanced pickets whither he had been sent to convey orders he came unexpectedly upon two mexican soldiers who had apparently just rowed across the River and were refreshing them Gen. officer in the army gives the following description of Gen. Taylor. On the 26th, a Friend of mine visited general Taylor in the Camp of Point Isabel where he had established his depot for stores in the army. On Landing the scene presented was quite a wild one and reminded one of the accounts we have received of an Arab Encampment. There were three or four dragoons in the Camp with their horses Pickett about besides an immense number of wagons mules and oxen. On stepping ashore an officer conducted my Friend to the general stent. He was introduced to a very Plain shakily dressed old gentleman of rather Small stature about sixty years of age and who looked by his Hardy appearance As if he had been camping out All his life. This was the commander in chief of the army of occupation. He has been 38 years in service on the frontiers of our country. One of his officers remarked that a old As he is he bears the fatigues and privations of the Campaign better than any one under him. He was affable dignified and in excellent spirits. His tent was 110 larger and no better than those of the other officers and 1fls table was his Camp Chest in which he carried his cooking utensils amp a. His plates were tin pans and his cups no saucers of course tin Pann Ikins. A Small Supply of Brown sugar was kept in a tin canister and not a piece of crockery was to be seen. A party of six was this entertained in homely style and they All seemed to enjoy it abundantly. The United states Force at the time consisted of about 3300 men. Our Flag. I am told was never hoisted South of the nieces before. Emancipation in the British West indies. By John s. C. Abbot. There Are few passages in the English language More Replete with the poetry of eloquence than the narrative by Thome and Kimball of the manner in which the slaves of Antigua receive their Freedom. The parlaiment of great Britain after a Long and arduous conflict had passed the act of emancipation. The last night of july 1834, had arrived and As the Sun went Down behind the Waves of the Caribbean sea there were eight Hundred thousand slaves in the it British West indies and before that Sun should again gild the Eastern horizon the chains of their Long bondage a re to be sundered forever. As the evening preceded their liberation cast its Twilight Over the Island the slaves were seen dressed in their Best attire hastening Long the various footpaths of the plantations through the valleys and Over the Hills to their places of worship there to keep their night watch to offer their evening sacrifice and their morning Orisons. A a the spacious Chapel of Saint Johns a say Thome and Kimball was soon. Filled with candidates for Liberty. All was animation and eagerness. A mighty chorus of voices swelled the song of expectation and Joy. And As they United in prayer the voice of the Leader was drowned in the Universal acclamation of thanksgiving and Praise and Blessing and Honor arid glory to god who had come Down for their deliverance. In such exercise the evening was spent until the hour of twelve approached. The minister then proposed that when the Ziock on the Cathedral should begin to strike the whole con a Sroga Tion should fall upon their Kees and receive their Boon of Freedom in silence. Accordingly As the loud Bell tolled its. First note the immense Assembly fell prostrate on their Kneese. All was silence save the quivering half stifled breath of the strut my spirit. The slow notes of tie clock fell upon Tho multitude. Peal on peal peal on peal rolled Over the prostrate throng in tones of Angel voices thrilling among the desolate chords and weary Heartstrings. Scarcely had the clock sounded its last note when the lightning flashed vividly around and a loud peal of Thunder roared along the sky gods pillar of fire and Trump of Jubilee. A moment of1 profoundest silence passing then came the burst they r broke Forth in prayer. They shouted. They Sang glory hallelujah they clapped their hands leaped up fell Down clasped each other in their free ans cried laughed and went to and fro tossed upward their unfettered hands but High above the whole there was a mighty sound whichever and anon swelled up. It was the uttering in broken negro dialect of gratitude to god. After this gush of excitement had spent itself and Tho congregation became Calm the religious exercises were resumed and the remainder of the night was occupied in singing and in prayer in Reading the Bible and in addresses from the missionaries explaining the nature of the Freedom just received and exhorting the free people to be industrious steady obedient to the Laws and to show themselves in All things worthy of the High Boon which god had conferred upon them. Such was the affectionate and religious gratitude which the gift of Freedom awakened in the negro breast. The succeeding Day the first Day of their emancipation was passed As a sacred Jubilee. There were no intemperate carousels Liere were no riotous mobs sweeping through the City spreading terror and devastation through the country but Tho rejoicing freemen assembled in their churches with their pastors who with Martyr Zeal had suffered and toiled for them and offered to god the incense of their thankful hearts. In the excitement of this vast change when the slaves though ignorant though degraded were casting off the intolerable Burden of Ages of oppression and exulting in their untried Liberty it is not known that a single drop of blood was shed that a single blow was struck or that a single outrage was committed All remembrance of past wrongs appear to be for Ever obliterated and Joy and gratitude were the Only emotions which were cherished in the hearts of the emancipated. A a history a says or. Channing a a contains no record More touching than the account of the religious Fervour and thankfulness which this vast Boon a wakened in the negro from the n. O. Pic. Of May 5. It is fully understood that the mexicans have been sustained in their hostility to the United states by but we will give a translation of a proclamation which Ampudia has found the Means of distributing Iii the Majneri can Camp by Way of letting our readers into ser. Vice of the War now waging. V the commander in chief of the mexican army to the English and Irish under june orders no Ila amen mean general Taylor know be that the government of the United states is committing repeated acts of barbarous aggression against the Magnana Mius mexican nation that the government which exists under a the Flag of the stars is unworthy the name of Christian. Recollect that you were born in great Britian that the american government looks with coldness upon the powerful Flag of St. George and is provoking to a rupture the warlike people to whom it belongs a president Polk boldly manifesting a desire to take Possession of Oregon As he has already done to Texas. Now then come with All Confidence to the mexican ranks and i guarantee to you upon my Honor Good treatment and that All your expenses shall be defrayed until you arrive in the Beautiful City of Mexico. Germans French poles and individuals of other nations separate yourselves from the Yankees and do not contribute to defend a robbery and usurpation which be assured the civilized nations of Europe look upon with the utmost indignation. Come therefore and array yourselves under the Tri coloured Flag in the Confidence that the god of armies protects it and that it will protect it equally with the English. Pedro de Ampudia. A enough miserable Man enough a he said a what you selves in a Cool Shade having placed their muskets against a assert is impossible it is an infamous calumny or an open Are Gilbert sprang to the muskets threw one upon the stratagem my son is incapable. A 1look Senor a replied the guerilla pointing to the staircase. Chapter xxx. The Price of blood. Don Stefano was in fact descending with the lieutenant and the three men he held in his hand the purse of the former and walked slowly surrounded by the three others. His face Pale and unquiet indicated the struggle which his soul had just sustained and if Don Pedro had yet doubt cd the horrible truth he could not have prevented himself from Reading it in the whole appearance of his son. He had Only strength to utter a sigh and Iell Back fainting 011 his chair. Stefano crossed the Hall with an unsteady step without perceiving his father. He thus arrived at the window open ground and stepped upon it while with the other he menaced the lives of his opponents. They cowered beneath his glance and reluctantly pursued the course which he indicated. He carried the two muskets upon his shoulder Drew his sword and thus marched them at a respectful distance in Advance straight into the Camp from them some desirable information was obtained after which they were led blindfolded out of Camp set safely in heir boat and dismissed. An anecdote of Philadelphia u. S. Gazette referring to the approaching National fair at Washington and some indications that Virginia would Send something for exhibition says Many years since at one of the Early exhibitions of the no on the main Road there he looked out with the air of a Franklin lust tute an elderly gentleman of dignified appear crazy Man and resting one hand on the window remained Ance and remarkable Simp a City of manners was seen mov motionless. J ing slowly through the several rooms and examining Arti his other hand convulsively clasped the captains purse Ces of Beauty and Worth with great care. Here was a Quan but one could see too Well that this movement was purely mechanical and that it was not for his Gold that the jealous Lover had betrayed his prisoner. On recollecting the hesitation of his son and his sudden impatience to go away Pedro cruelly explained to himself tits of printed Cali Coes from Rhode Island there samples of Beautiful sheeting from Massachusetts Broad cloths of great delicacy elegant blankets and other Cotton and Woolen fabrics inviting his applause. He looked at and admired the Well finished cutlery and the Rich Silver Ware that decked his crime and a comprehended that he had sold his guest to j to get Central table. Every where his eyes detected something destroy his rival. Passion had without doubt led his head i approve. It was pleasant to see the interest which the astray even to madness and he had then been no More Mas i venerable stranger manifested in All he saw. At length his ter of his actions than he afterwards appeared to be of his Eye caught a Label on something Laid almost out of View. To and delicious scene Pedro raised his eyes inundated with tears to heaven exclaiming a my god my god do not awaken us from this dream a thoughts however it might be the old castillion could not believe in so much infamy or so much madness and the eyes which he fixed on Stefano appeared As wild As those of the Young Man himself. After having exchanged some words in a Low voice with the lieutenant the Captain made a sign to two of the guerillas who accompanied the villager. A remain near that fellow a said he to them already treating Stefano with that contempt with which traitors Are paid Mina was one of the principal constitutionalism generals during the civil War in . Stepped rapidly Forward took up the article lifted up the Pendant paper and read a manufactured by Richmond a tear dropped the Eye of the venerable Man As he read the last word.

A that a said the attendant As he lifted his hat a is chief Justice chief Justice Marshall was an american a whole american and nothing but an american but he loved old Virginia and Felt proud to see her taking a step towards her True place in the cause of of National Independence a circus Estial account of Lieut. Porters letter received in Washington City from an officer of Gen. Taylor a army by an officer of the army stationed in that City under Date of april 24th, gives the following circumstantial account of the death of Lieut. Porter of the 4th infantry a the whole number of Lieut. Porters party have returned to Camp except himself and the Soldier who was killed by the first fire of the mexicans in the rencontre in the afternoon of the 19th. Private Anes of company a the last Man of ibis party who came in on the night of the 22d, states that he was within five or six feet of Lieut. Porter when he fell. He immediately Laid Down and expired soon afterwards. The Soldier who was previously killed Lay within five Yards of him. Frequent attempts were made to return the fire of the mexican party but the arms of Lieut. Porters party were All wet and would not go off. Private Anes remained near the dead bodies of Leiutenant Porter and the Soldier for some time concealed in the dense Thicket the Chapparal hoping Relief would come and carry the bodies off. He was at last however obliged to make his own Way to the Camp which he found with great difficulty owing to the density of the Thicket and the great difficulty of moving through it. He states that these dead bodies were at one time surrounded by a number of mexicans who made the most Savage exultation unworthy of a civilized the same writer adds in relation to col. Cross a col. Cross remains were found a Short distance from a Road leading near the River and not on the Point Isabel Road As i wrote to you in my previous letter. He was stripped of his clothing and the flesh was picked off by the vultures. It had been dragged some distance into the Thicket after the murder. It was recognized to be the body of col. Cross by his Teeth a part of his Scalp which had been torn off by the vultures his Stock and one of the straps from the shoulder of his military frock coat. His watch his pistol and his horse Are now in Possession of the mexican officers a Meta moras. A colonel Cross was killed by one Romano Falcon in the presence of a lieutenant in the mexican army. Falcon is what is called Here a commission re that is one who is authorized to seize All persons attempting to smuggle goods across the line. He is commissioned by the mexican government but All such persons will Rob or murder any one they meet. A the mexicans should bleed freely most freely for the murder of Cross for it was a cold blooded murder committed by a Public officer for the Washington Union says a apprehensions have been expressed that Mexico May Issue letters of Marque to Spanish subjects in Cuba to cruise against the Commerce of the u. States and that privateers May be fixed out in the ports of that Island for this . Indeed it has been suggested that two mexican steamers which have been recently transferred to Havana have been sent there with this object. We know that the government of Spain would not Sanction such a proceeding but it is not generally known that a Spanish subject could not except a commission for this purpose from the mexican government without being guilty of piracy. For Public information we copy the 14th article of the treaty with Spain of the 20th october 1795, which articles Are now in Force a article 14th. No subject of his Catholic majesty shall apply for or take any commission or letters of Marque for arming any ship or ships to act As privateers against the said United states or against the citizens people or inhabitants of said United states or against the property of any of the inhabitants of any of them from any Prince or state with which the said United sates shall be at War. A nor shall any citizen subject or inhabitant of the said u. States apply for or take any commission or letters of Marque for arming any ship or ships to act As privateers against the subjects of his Catholic majesty or the property of any of them from any Prince or state with which the said King shall be at War. And if any person of either nation shall take such commissions or letters of Marque he shall be punished As a 1 Hai is he shall be a Hung by the neck until he is the Rio presume says the new York Tribune our readers will understand that the Rio Grande Rio Brovo and Rio Del Norte Are so Many different names of the same great River which rises in the Southern slope of the Rocky mountains and runs nearly due South almost 2,000 Miles into the Gulf of Mexico. Its course is in Good part through a thinly peopled desert in some places mountainous in others composed of wide sterile Plains. Valuable mines of Gold and Silver exist in the province of Santa be some 1,500 Miles from its Mouth. The River is generally rapid and Rocky rendering navigation dangerous if not impossible but we believe it May be ascended by steamboats some 400 to 500 Miles. Matamoras some 70 or 80 Miles from the Gulf is the usual head of navigation. A right Appeal. The Day is past when men like to Appeal to forty two Pounders if it can be avoided. The Goose Quill and a benevolent philanthropy Are far better weapons. Nobody now sneers at William Fenn for conquering the indians As he did and we Are sure nobody will condemn any Man or nation for battling with these instead of a rocket brigade or a Park of Cannon. Acting in this spirit senator Critteden referring to Mexico and her condition and the causes she had to Feci sorely towards us suggests. A policy and magnanimity require that we should be As forbearing towards her As we can. Our superiority is such As to relieve us from the possibility of our forbearance or generosity being construed into fear or being ascribed to any improper or unworthy motives. No statesmen could Render a greater service to his country than by restoring our peace and Friendship with Mexico. And so important do i regard it that if it was in my Power i would appoint Clay Van Buren Calhoun and Benton any one two or three or All of them. Mexico would feel herself honoured by such a Mission and such ambassadors would give peace cordial peace to the two and the country would be honoured now and for Ever for pursuing this course.
