Lord Edmond breathed More freely and ventured to turn round in Bis bed just As he Laid his head on the Pillow in a state of mind which the Reader can easily imagine but which is not easily described he Felt that a third person was near him and in an instant More a female voice whispered in his ear with great trepidation Quot Maku no objections when the ruffians ask you to sit in the choir 1 will Cut a Hole through the Blanket on the right Side of it slip your hand in and hold by the bullies this will break your fall Aud prevent immediate Why not assist me to escape now Quot responded Montressor.

A after his departure it was by Soniville and Fitzroy to follow the Quot country a Ige a ii Quot As they called Liim and have some fun with Hin in or about a St. Patrick s Cioe the character of Winch Hus already been described. Captain d. Ord red the Hornes to be put to the carnage imme Dittly and set out to overtake Liiri. They and gone but a Short distance when they found him leaning against a tree unable to go further Iroini the effects of the he Lead taken. They got him into the vehicle and ordering tie Cochurn to take them to Bride of treet relapsed into silent and mischievous int citation. Lord Montressor remembered Nul Hing till he found himself in front of the Cathedral and a mob collected around him. Domville and Fitzroy having to show to their wit and manners broken a lamp or two the watch had seized them and while manfully brandishing their swords about the i to effect their Liberty i Ord Edmond received adjoining room turned to seat himself m the chair Kirbt slipping in his hand to secure the bullies he disappeared and slipping from it gently the chair instantly returned to its former position. On descending from it he fell and was so stunned in consequence of his head coming in Contact with some hard substance that he was for some time perfectly insensible on his recovery he could discern nothing but the stench that assailed his senses was almost too horrible to endure. As the Day advanced he discovered a Small aperture probably made by some Osiier wretch As unfortunate As himself and crawling Over human skulls and Bones he made his Way to the Corner whence the Light proceeded and by inhaling the Small portion of air that entered by it was e enabled to breathe the breath of life. The fever that already raged in his veins increased and delirium followed. Thus be continued during the Day at night Biddy let herself Down in the chair bringing a Pitcher of water and a loaf of bread she made Montressor sensible of her presence and told him that the gang had All left the House in Pursuit of fresh victims out there was no Hope of escaping As they had fastened her in but that on the following Day she would have her turn to go out and would apprise his friends of his situation also that on the morning Tivey had sent her out of the Way she made an attempt to go to Kildare Street but was met on the Way by one of the Crew who insisted upon her re an accidental blow on his head which though it had completely sobered him still left him unable to a a a he was an object of suspicion Rise or walk. In this situation he accepted the asja Quot gift acc of a female who mingled with the crowd. She staunches the wound and when the throng dispersed assisted him to reach the sink of infamy where he was discovered by bran with the Promise of a procuring a coach for him. By this time Edmond Felt quite unable to assist himself his wound bled so profusely. A Levi Isle present who looked rather More be a human being than the other two having Bible for fear of the return of the ruffians. Two More Days elapsed and on the third lord Edmond was liberated and returned to the bosom of his family. Jne Day shortly after his recovery a female called to inquire How he was and requested to be admitted to see him. It was the wretched woman who had apprised the Baroness de Lacy of having seen Montressor As before mentioned on the Reed him to Down he soon fell into a profound i Lunek s Cathedral i he lady Isabella sleep from the double effects of his late excess and grateful to her for being the instrument through i loss of blood bout Midnight he was awakened by Quot by of restoring her son willingly admitted finding that two persons were near Hun one Leinov her now a Well dressed female in consequence of Init his sword Ali Ich was at that time a he Bounty of the Baroness.

The animal fell and set up a Moat plaintive cry something like that of the Panther when he is hungry. The Hunter instead of giving him another shot stood close to him and addressed him in these words Quot hark be Bear you Are a Coward and no Warrior As you pretend to be. Were you a Warrior As you pretend to be you would show it by your firmness and not cry and whimper like an old woman. You know Bear that our tribes Are at War with each other and that yours w As the aggressor. You have found the indians too powerful for you and you have gone sneaking about in the Woods stealing their hogs perhaps at this time you have hog s flesh in your belly. Had you conquered me i would have borne it with courage and died like a Brave Warrior but you Bear sit Here and cry and disgrace your tribe by your cowardly a person being present at the delivery of this curious invective after he had despatched the Bear asked Ine Hunter How he thought the poor animal could understand what he had said to it. Quot of Quot said he in reply Quot the Bear understood me very Well did you not observe How ashamed he looked while i was upbraiding him this is a historical fact. Were Strong in her bosom and she resolved to Liber to it find himself. Being perfectly in Hie senses he j Quot the the elegant youth on whose lips the name of resolved to be quiet thinking resistance use eos and that escape by stratagem were the better Jojn he therefore affected sleep. Quot How found he sleeps Quot whispered one of the two Quot he Little dreams where he is or he would be soon wide a a och Quot said the other swearing a horrible Atli in the same subdued tone Quot but hell soon be in quiet company where it won t be Ai a for him to be awakened at Laie in this by my truth but he s a Brave looking youth to my eyes Quot said a female voice Quot and sure i think it s a pity of him that he s Here among yes. 1 Winlker if be has a Mother he has the Jon Ileman in All his looks and och his dress a is it it costly Dow i Doo t doubt but some great i is thinking of Bim but Moie s the pity of her poor crate Quot och Biddy now hould your Tongue and let s Bear no More of your pity it s the great bodies that swallows up All and would let the likes of Hus suffer. Let the Young Man go to his eternal rest in Pace Good woman none of your pity now be would it give be bread was be wanting och a hone a hone Quot sighed be Quot but this is a Gawky world god be Here instead of the divil i my 1 must sleep though the evil one watches oter let us do this thing quietly Quot again whispered one of the men Quot Biddy sleeps suppose we get this Young sprig of grandeur to sit in the big it Muir As soon As he gets up in the morning 1&Quot Whirt i say whist Quot said tie other Quot the Epig of the dive you mane spake lower he they were silent for a moment Aud lord Edmond whose heart beat violently endeavoured to stifle its throbbing thinking Attiat his death was inevitable if they supposed he heard them and they went on. A a if he flt yes the ropes he May sup act that there is some trick and try to save himself by taking bold of them which will break the Force of ins a a strangle him now this is the surest Way to manage him Quot replied Bis companion a a he will struggle and Biddy will Call the watch. No we will just throw a Blanket Over it and that will hide the dailies we must get rid of Biddy Mother continually hovered. Fear alone prevented her from disco big the facts before she had now turned King s evidence and the whole gang were under Seu Tevice of death. The conclusion of this Story it will be readily imagined terminated in the Happy marriage of Edmond lord Montressor the repentant and improved Lover and the Lovely and accomplished Philippa de Lacy. We must nut dismiss this Story however without remarking that Captain doing Ilia Aud Fitzroy who to do them Justice did Nul calculate upon terminating their frolic in the manner it fell out passed their night in the watch House and on the following Day were carried before a magistrate for breaking the peace and for want of immediate bail were ordered into confinement till it was procured. Thus it happened that Uliey knew nothing of the Fate of lord Edmond till informed of it tii rough the medium of the Public prints when they immediately repaired to Kildare Street to apologize it i to him for having been the Means of bringing him into so much peril to which Montressor replied Gentl fam a. You Bave mar forgiveness but Here forever ends our acquaintance. Amid the sequestered shades of Boyle Abbey in the society of my beloved wife and Mother 1 shall spend the residue of my Days far from Dublin and the guilty Commerce of Many of my sex among whom while in it 1 found that my Bett Friend through the mercy of heaven was my dog who for the future Small make one of my quartering with the motto of lilt est Mei conservator. A horned correspondent of the new York Star in giving some account of Gottin Gen University in Germany states that in the Cabinet of that institution the greatest curiosity consists of three horns which were presented by or. Blumenbach. Quot two of the horns Are Short thick and nearly straight the third is about ten inches Long and completely twisted like a ram s Horn. It is rough and round half an Inch in diameter at the Root and of a Brownish Hue. These horns Are round and Blunt at the top and hollow at the base. Blumenbach ascertained by chemical analysis that they had a greater Affinity in their composition to the Horn of the Rhinoceros than to the Horn of any other animal. These three horns were once worn by a woman she broke her head by a fall and the longest Horn sprouted from the wound. It kept growing for thirty years and then she cast it. When it dropped off a second came which did not grow to such a length and also dropped off. On the same spot sprouted a third and the woman died while it was growing. Blumenbach Cut it from the Scull after she had died. Uncommon As this tale May seem i give it full credence. It is attested not Only by Blumenbach s own statement but by other from the Manhattan of Adver Luer. Fellow friends and some that in not friends. The Tenor of tia epistle is thus Tbs wigs have attempted to sing them selves into office. Therefore it remain Etc for us to sing their Lullaby As Bath been our Fortune Oil aforetime. No doubt they la squirm a Little in the Cradle it s just like them. The idea that the people Are to be gulled by song without the Merit of either truth or patriotism is a chimera of entire whig origin. There is Only one Way to reach the people and that is by an Bonest up and Down straight Forward course. These Echelon movements May do Well enough in Federal discipline but they make marvellous bad tracks on a democratic Chart. Sing it and see How it sound in full chorus. Begin Bullet proof of the hero Quot who never lost a slow Timss a a of no i never mention Quick Timbo it Auld Lang of no be never lost a fight he s Ever Bullet proof for Why 1 when or the Battle raged he always Kepi aloof he always kept aloof my friends he Aleays kept aloof and that s the reason Why Quot old tip Quot sfas always Bullet proof twas very cautious in old tip Quot twas very Brave and fair the More our British foes came on.

W. The sky was completely Black with them. They covered every part of the Brig immediately sails rigging Cabin ii. It is a Little singular How they came there and Bow they could have supported themselves in the air so Long As there was no land to the n. W. Fur several thousand Miles. Two Days afterwards the weather being moderate the Brig sailed through swarms of them floating dead upon the Salem Register 16,000 Worth of Federal principle is we see in Many of the Federal papers great re icing at the Cincinnati news throwing off its neutrality and declaring for the Waif abolition candidates Harrison and Corwin. Thai the Pablic May know what the principles of the news Cost we publish from its own columns a few Days before it Rais Ltd the Harrison Flag what its idea of politics Are. The news said or nub Travitt a of late we have often been assailed by our friends with the question of Quot Why do we not doff oar neutrality and come out for Van Buren or Harrison 1&Quot now our answer is this we hold with the opinion of Bim who said every Man has his Price and that More particularly in the political world. For at the present Day politics in our opinion is the Best article of Trade that a Man can traffic in. The idea of an Bonest politician is ridiculous. To search one would be As fruitless to him who should attempt it As the looking for a Needle in a bundle of this being our candid belief we beg leave to inform our friends that we Are willing to throw off our Mantle of neutrality and assume that of either of the great parties that is provided we get our Price. We Are for Sale and if either the Van Bure nites or the Harriso nites Are willing to pay us Down on the Nail five thousand dollars we will Nail the bargain and Clinch it tight particularly the $5,000, and will furthermore engage to support the purchaser s opinions and party through thick and think and through truth and through in Laud our pet to the skies. To Whitewash and Render the most hideous character As fair As virtue s fairest born where the expediency and interest of our party renders it available and necessary for the Quot Public of course after such a declaration no Democrat would touch the unclean thing even had it made professions of democracy. But it was just the paper fur the federalists and got its Reward such is the corruption of the monopoly party. The news has undertaken to Quot Whitewash Quot a character Quot hideous Quot enough in All statesman. The cat out of the third District affair is now in fact ended and or. Naylor s illegal position unequivocally defined. William g. Conrow a gentleman of property and character one of the election officers in Spring Garden in 1836, and one of those return judges who signed or. Naylor s certificate has on oath explained so Many of the fraudulent circumstances attending this iniquitous matter that its whole blackness stands As it were developed in the Light of Day. Zvir. Conrow deposed that or. Naylor himself assured Bim that the democratic ticket was entirely elected and that the whigs who had gone to Harrisburg bad better return and thus prevent the disgrace which must necessarily fall upon the party that or. Naylor acknowledged that he was not elected and that he was not returned according to Law. Or. C. Declined answering some questions on the plea that he was not bound to Criminate himself but declared that he signed or. Naylor s return under a misapprehension and that if be bad known at the time All that he had afterwards Learned from or. Naylor himself he would have signed the return of or. Ingersoll. On the whole it is evident that if Conrow had been called upon at the commencement of the investigation he would by Bis evidence have put an end to the proceedings at once and established the fact that or. Ingersoll and the people of the third District have been most infamously cheated of their rights by a few unprincipled members of the whig the times. In the All it is no wonder that Gen. Harrison never sustained a defeat As his Story proves that he never fought a Battle during his whole career. He always bad some Good men under him to do the fighting staunch democrats like Dick Johnson who Well knew How to pull a trigger or brandish a Broad sword but the position he chose for himself was an extremely Safe one. He was always in the rear. At the Battle of Raisin River be was in the rear at fort Stephenson be was nine Miles in the rear when Congress voted the thanks of the american people to gov. Shelby and other Brave officers of the Northwest they struck out the name of Gen. Harrison who was in the rear when the ladies of Chillicothe voted to Croghan a sword Harrison was in the rear when be voted to sell White men fur Quot fines and costs Quot he was inthe rear a when be ran for a seat in the Ohio legislature he was in the rear when he was a candidate for governor of Ohio and received Only 4,000 votes of of 50,000, he was in the rear when he was a can didst for the presidency in 1836 he was in the rear a and in next november be will be in the rear. That is Bis appropriate place. There is where he always was and always will be in the rear a Goshen Democrat. The following to from Cor last pm do it a Tea a Kiru Flam my.

Bunyan and the had a natural turn for wit and repartee which appears in the following Story. Towards the close of his imprisonment a Oldaker called upon Bim probably hoping to make a convert of the author of the Pilgrim. He thus addressed him. Quot Friend John 1 am come to thee with a message from the lord and alter searching in All the prisons in England i am glad i have found thee at Quot if the lord bad sent thee Quot returned Bunyan sarcastically Quot you used not Bave taken so much pains to find is out for the lord knows i Bave been a prisoner id the Bedford jail these twelve substitute for Chimney writer in the National intelligencer says Quot if when a Chimney is built the mortar with which it is plastered be mixed with Salt there will be no necessity for sweeping it As in every Damp spell of weather the Salt Deli quesnes and the soot will of course fall Down. I do nut write altogether from theory on this subject but know an instance of a Chimney which was treated in the above manner Twenty nine years ago which has been in constant use every Winter since. Part of the time a fireplace was used with a grate and bituminous Coal but lately with a stove and Wood. The stove pipe frequently catches fire which is suffered to Burn into the Chimney without any apprehension of danger. I merely mention these facts As hints to induce further a Young girl at Buffalo n.
