It was a dark and stormy night.
The prisoner sat alone in his lone-
some cell. He wps to die, and for
what? Forsooth, a spy had been
seen near his door. He arose and
approached the narrow grated win-
dow. Unaided, escape was impos-
sible. He listlessly gazed out and
counted the lamps as they were ex-
tinguished one by one, or heard the
distant cry of the sentinel, "All's
well." He had stood thus for some
time, when he was startled from hig
revery by the appearance of a head
above the level of the window sill,
and a low voice said :
"Hist Wilson, is that you ?".
He recognized the voice of Mor-
ton, notwithstanding he could not
see his face distinctly.
"Haste but do not speak," said
he, "our time is short, and we 'must
'employ it to the purpose."
By the united exertions of the
two, and the aid of an instrument
brought by Morton, the iron bars
of the window were quickly removed
and Wilson soon stood lb the side
of his liberator. A gagged and
prostrate sentinel endeavored to
shout, but to no avail. They passed
him, and were soon outside the pris-
on wall, on their way to the wharf,
where Morton's boat was moored.-
Three hours after, they were both
safe in the American camp.
As soon as the war was ended,
Morton retired from his country's
service, and ,wasshortly after mar-
ried to Mary Wilsori-his old school.

and by exercise preserved vigorous

and my apothecary an ass."

Scarcely two minutes had elapsed
ere they haid surrounded the house,
but M'orton had flown, and their
search proved unavailina, altli.uigl
carried to the outhuildings. Exas,
perit'd by their failure, the search-
ers returned to the old farntm house,
and summoned Wilsonrto reveal -he
hiding place of the spy, at the same
time inefiin-iaiig him with ain iniie
liaie hlangiing unless he complied..
He pri.tested his innicencee ,.-f any
knwi.ilelge of the affair, but to no
avail. Binling him anld his fair
neice, they nmountel them upon'
horses, and set out for the camp.-
Seeing, no hopes of rescuing them
at present, MIrton resumed his or-
dinary dress, and sc,,ured acr-i.ss the
country to Valley Forge.
Washington heard the report of
his spy, but his noble brow lowered,
and a frown gathered upon'his fea-
tures as le was informed of the cap-
ture of Wilson and hi, neice.-
Scarce a week had passed, ere, from
his request, the maiden was set at
liberty, and placed under the care
-of a whl1faiatly, in the interior.-
In the mean time, Wilson had been
conveyed to Philadelphia, and there
immured in prison.
A few weeks after this event, a
young fisherman, although embar-"
goed by the commands of General
Howe, often had, under the pretext
of selling whiskey to the soldiers,
passed the outposts and sentinels
with impunity, and the sentinels
had become so familiar with the old
red boat and blue barrel, that he
was but seldom challenged. Under
the fisherman's slouched hat might
have been recognized the face of
young Morton. His object was not
alone the gaining of i!nfoinafion.--

release, were it at the peril of his

Things for Consideration.I
Let a clear conscience approve
e'ery action.
Do all the good you can, and as
little harm as possible.
Be charitable to those who may
differ from you-as all humanity is
liable to err, it is best to ascertain
who is erring before pronouncing
If fame, honor, virtue, renown,
qualities which form the'impregna-
ble bulwark of hnman character,
learn that they are all within your
reach. They who neglect these are
treacherous to their own interests.
Those prone 'to dissipate should
look at dissipation's practical ef-
fects, and they 'vill turn from it-in
Recollect that the desire of those
in moderate circumstances to fash-
ion after persons blessed with great-
er affluence, is a besetting sin of
false pride, and often ends, not only
in forsaken poverty, but in a fall
from inordinate ambition to regret-
ful obscurity.
A wholesome rule of living is to
procure the absolute necessities of
life first, by paying for them, and
never indulge in luxuries except you
have sufficient money to spare.
Never forfeit the good will of a
friend by extorting upon his gener-
Borrow money only when you are
sure of being able to return it, and
lend when there is confidence suffi-
cient to know it will be paid back.
Constables and collectors are good
in their pjice, but disagreeable vis-
itors when you cannot satisfy their
Young ladies should not wear
hundred dollar silk dresses, five
hundred dollar shawls, and fifty dol-
lar handkerchiefs, when their fa-
thers are paying two per cent. a
month for burrowed money, and the
dread of bankruptcy haunts them
day and night..- Wives will do well
to think of these things with refer-
ence to' their husbands.
Young gentlemen, who from ex-
travagance in living, or other im-
prudencies, neglect paying their
tailor's bills, should have enough
pride not to be .pensioners upon
those whom they* consider but the
"ninth part of a man."
TilE FORM.-Though the insti-
tuted forms of religion may be

Neglect of The Soul.
A gentleman once assured, us,
that, during the first twenty years
of wedded life, not a single conver-
sation on the subject of religion oc-
curred between his wife and himself.
This was not because their union
had proved unhappy, and unhappi-
ness restrained them from mutual
confidence. Nor was it from the
lack of minds, apt, by reason of vig-
or and-cultivation, to range through
every field of human enquiry. The
explanation, (as we had it from his
lips,) took another and even a sad-
der shape.
These twenty years, as a general
rule, were years destituteof religious
feehng. 'Ihe world, and the things
of the world, engrossed allection ;
and there was left in the bosom, no
space for that thoughtfulness, which
remembrance oft od overshadows
with awe, and meditation upon Christ
subuues into penitence. AL rare in-
tervals, however, religious'" feeling
swept over the heart. :'But it was
regarded as a weakness; and the
e"IoAIenee tha.t knew 'r-'o;thiOl" ad-
cret, thrust this behind the screen
otmute reserve. Besides it brought
disquieLudO .aith it, and was shut up
in ilence, lest a frank avowel
should give unwelcome pain. bo it
cume to pass that this pair walked
their way eo lile together, and spoke-
not ol Lne soul-or the sin'that de-
stroys-or the blood that saves it.
There is a lesson in these facts,
but do we need to dcclare it'? If
the soul is to be cared tor, Chris-
Utans Iuubt Lecl that care. Not the
most intimate relations subsisting
between tue ungodly, pot the ten-
qerest sy'upathies, blding heart

-Witha educev, the one toneda

which makes them one, works

science, win thoughts of WltC, or
tears of wrath, i'vcovers these oer
in close concealment, that they may
not wound, or offend, a dear but im-
penitent partner. We repeat, then,
-the only true and effective care
tor the souls of others, is that which
Uhristians tee. W would that we
uaghi realize this truth, until we
tremuie, lest there may be souls
abanuauned to the snares of satan,

morouguly snake ourselves loose

what we can, that souls may be won

Self control.
A merchant in London had a dis-
pute with a Quaker respecting the
settlement of an account. The mer-
chant was determined to bring the
account into Court, a proceeding
which the Quaker earnestly depre-
cated, usiik every argument in his
power to convince the merchant of
his error; but the latter was inflex-
ible. Desirous to make a last effort)
the Quaker called at his house one
morning, and inquired of the ser-
vant if his master wat at home.
The merchant hearing the inquiry,
and knowing the voice, called out
from the top of the stairs, "Tell the
rascal I am not at home." The Qua-.
ker looking up to him calmly said,
"Well, friend, God put thee in a
better mind' The merchant was
struck afterwards with tihe meek
ness of the reply, and having more
deliberatelyinvestigated the matter,
became convinced that the Quaker
was right, andihthat he was wrong.
He requested to see him, and after

was imprudent. I observed thai
men in a passion always spoke,
loud; and I thought if I could con-
trUol my voice, I should repress my
passion. I have, therefore, made it
a rule never to let my -6ibce rise
above a certain key ; andby a care-
ful observance of this rule, I have
by the blessing of God, entirely
mastered my natural teiper." The,
Qualker reasoned philosophically,
and the merchant, as every one else
may do, benefitted by hi's example.*

County papers are of much more "

They stimulate a taste forii.ead-

They are of essential go&d fiiag
family ip fostering a taste for read-
ing among children. County papers
enjoy an advantage over papers pib-
lished at a distance, because ;pany
of their items are of a local inbrest
which naturally attracts a ihild's

A Boston paper speaking on the
subject of newspapers, gives the fol-
lowing sensible advice to persons
'living in the country. It says:.
"People hardly know how much
they lose by.neot subscribing, for
their county paper. There area -
ways certain matters of local inter-
east, in *hich-.it behooves every
good citizen to keep fully 'posted up.'
Instead ofsendingaway fifty or han- .
dred miles for a miscellaneous paper,
suited only for a general reader, ev-
ery man should fake his county a-
per and pay for it in advance, their
if he has money to spare for iuer.
amusement, or' the gratiftion of
his own taste, let him subscribe for
a good city paper, contaiining bible'
reports of popular and scientific lec-
tures, legislative and congressional .,
intelligence, with a general anma- __
ry of foreign and domestic news ;to
the latest moments of going to"ress.
Now if this is not good advice, we
hardly know what is. Never sub-
scribe withoutpaying in advance.
The man that does his duty in their'
respect. reads his weekly paper with
increased satisfaction. Every oneo
knows that hisgreatest comfort is
derived from the oonscicusness of
having done or tried to do right and
certainly it is no more than rightto "

acknowledging bis error, he said,
"I have one question to ask you.
How were you able with such pa-
tience, on various occasions, to bear
my abuse ?" "Friend." replied the
Quaker, "I will tell thee, I was na-
