A BOLD ADVENTURE
In the Last INF.
One day during the last war, opposite
the entrance to Portsmouth Harbor, and
about three miles' from the shore,lay a
black frigate at anchor ; and the contin
ual motion on its decks, as seen with
the aid of a glass from land, betokened
that some event of unusual interest %via
soon to occur. Although it showedno
colors, it required an eye, of but little
experience in naval matters to decide
that it was English. WFiat could he its
object was a trystery.' Its Wooden walls
effectually concealed the principal op
erations from many who watched it anx
iously from the shore, `arid when, during
the day, it was joined by another vessel
of the same class, and a heavy man-of
war, not a little excitement was created
among those who lived near the water.
Towards Portsmouth the enemy had
often thrown longing glances. It was
the key to New Hanipshire and the
western part . of Maine, and possessing
one of the finest harbors in the world,
where a navy, without losing a spar,
might ride out a tempest, it held, in
their eyes, e place of no mean import
ance. But the iron teeth that grinned
on the forts at the mouth of the Pisca
taqua had "hitherto- been:. an effectual
check upon their courage; Besides,
several thousand well-trained soldiers
had been collected. there, in anticipation
of an attack, and whola companies of
volunteers were daily arriving froth the
northern part of the state, and even from
the Green Mountains, panting with a
desire for a conflict. Portsmeuth, was:
under martial law. Its long rope-walks,
school—houses, and churches, were
crowded with . the bpne and muiele of-
New England, 'all deterniined - to defend
the place to the last extremity. The
sea shorn was Walked, for miles, night
and day, by a corps of sentinels,'and
every precaution taken to guard against
A notice of the approach of tiftWar
ships soon reached the town. - The tall.
flag staff thattad been placed near the
mouth of ~, , the river,. and was watched
continually from the steeples, was seen
to have been inclined- towards ths. sea
which was the signal of danger rimed
upon. And when the sun,werit down,
not knowing how imminent it might be,
the excitement that filled the place was
tremendous. 'There was mounting in
hot haste' and couriers dashed through
the, streets like the winds. Every cart
and, carriage„was,busy in removing the
women--and-valuables to a situation of
security,', and' - the -snldiers, burnished

the soldiers lay down to dream of their

No sooner had the darkness begun to
settle on the sea, than boats just obsery
able through the twilight, were seen,
passing between the enemy's vessels,
and evidently bearing orders, from one
to the other and, maturing, their plans.

looked !lice a black, undulating pall,
and as though to increase the awfulness
of their conditions, the. British had ex

an object could be traced through the
almost palpable blackness, the bOat's

time, and had gone twn-thirds of the

With their patience nearly worn out,
Ned- at length whispered, "Bill, if you
can keep your hold I will go abroad and
get a full report of these vill'ains' busi

when they heard hurried motions on the
deck, a large boat was let down, and a
dozen men, all of whom by the faint
light of a lantern, they discovered to be
armed, pushed off toward the - shore that
lies south of the'Piscataqui.
Scarcely had they gone,' thin Ned,
with the assistance of a rope, that drag
ged in the water, climbed to the deck.
The watch was grouped beside -a-gun
-carriage, and Ned, as confidently as
though, he'had Amen one: of, the crew,
walked by;:.and reaching :the hatchway,
descentied to the lower deck. Here he
found himself among several , hollered
men, a" - part of whom were in their ham

But when lie reached the hatChway, he
found the passage.entirely closed by - two

tirely invisible, but necessarily hearing
every word. At was nearly an heur that
he stood waiting for them to rise, and
listening to , their outbreaks of passion
concerning the Americans.

and as soon as the,uProar had, in some
degree,, subsided, made his way on deck.
But here an unexpected event occurred.
The boat which had left before he came
aboard had just returned, and the crew,
when he stepped on deck, were in the
act of lifting up a pris(trier.,, Determin
ed, if possible, to know wlin it might
be, he elbowed his way into the group
with admirable coolness, and succeeded
in taking an arm of the prisoner,—
Wilde notice of their succesi was pass
ed below, =Ned found oriportunity to
whisper a word of encouragement in the
poor fellow's ear, and when the order
was given that he should be conducted
to the cabin, Ned, unobserved, stole aft
and dropped into the boat.
The prisoner found the cabin furnish.

like velvet. Mirrors of enormous di

pyramid, so rich were the polished sword
blades and jeweled hilts, the silver scab
bards, the varnished pistols, the steel sa

highest finish thatkill could give them.
Flower vases, filled with beautiful ex

and thoughtful brow, sat in an antique
chair of carved-oak, and fashioned after
such a luxurious pattern that one might
have lounged his life out in it, and net , .
er grown weary. A girl, the (laughter
of the old man, with such an innocent
and sweet countenance as can belong
only to a pure mind, and with lips as
tempting as her own " rese-bnds, was
reading when they entered. The pris
oner was brought before the hard-featur

themselves about at respectful dis

he would have ordered the fearless sol

his unaided efforts Ned,
having again left his boat, crouched
like a panther near the stern, and waited
a fit time to spring and rescue him; and
it was when the sentinel passed him to
go to the bows that be glided to the
prisoner—with a thrust of his knife,
severed the cords that bound him to the
gun, and lifting him in his argils as
though he were an infant, hastened to
"the stern and swung into the boat. As
for life, they plied their oars, but they
had scarcely left the ship when they
heard.the alarm given upon its decka.--.
calls for lights and shouts that the prig.
otter had escaped, followed. Lanterns
flew through the ship, anditll was chg.
fusion. The bold. fellows in the boat
saw all, and felt, in that deep darkness,
that it was impossible for the British to
overtake them;, and althOugh within
pistol shot, they were unable to restrain
their joy, but with that fearlessness that
characterises American sailors, rested
on their oars and gave three hearty
cheers. Scarcely had the last tutus
left their lips; than a stream of fire shot
out from the ship, and the deep boom
of a cannon awakened them to their for
iy. Though fired at random, they heard
the ball whistle by, very near them.—
The boatswain's shrill call to quarters
rose on the night, and the sailors ex
pecting an attack every moment, rushed
to defend their decks.
Our heroes reached the shore safely,
and the sentinel, released of hit shack
les, was ready to resume his arms and
his duty. The night passed heavily and
in suspense, but in the morning the sun
rose from his bed, looking clear and
cold as an icicle. The sea was blue
but calm, and every ship was gone, and
not a speck dotted it from the shore to
the horizon. The British had given
over all attempts on Portsmouth, but
whether restrained by the crafty story
of the trusty sentinel, or the valiant
cheering of the men in the boat, will,
perhaps, ever be a point in dispute.

The Deed Scott Case*
THE orricat REPORT
Continued from last week's issue
it is impossible, it would seem to be
lieve that the great men of the slave
holding States, who took so large a abate
in framing the constitution of the Unit•
ed States, and exercised so much indu.
ence.in procuring its adoption, could
haVe beery so forgetfull or regardless of
their own Safety and the safety of thosie
who trusted and confided in them.
Besides, this want of foresight and
care would have been utterly inconsist
ent with the - caution displayed in provi
ding for the admission of new members
into this political family; for when they
gave to the citizens of each State the
privileges and immunities of citizens in
the several States, they at the same time
took from the several States the power of
naturalization, and confined that power
exclusively to the federal government.
No State was willing to permit another
Stateto determine who should or should
not be admitted as one of its citizens,
and entitled to demand equal rights and
`privileges with their own people within
their =own territories_ The right of nat.
uralization was, therefore, with one ac.
cord, surrendered by the Stales, and con
fided to the federal government. And
this power granted to Congress to es
tablish an uniform rule of naturalisation
is, by the well-understood meaning of
the word, confined to persons born in a
foreign country, under a foreign govern.
ment. It is not a power to raise to the
rank of a citizen any one born in the
United States, who from birth or par
entage, by the laws of the country, be•
longs to an inferior and subordinate class
and when we find the States guarding
themselves from the indiscreet, or im
proper admission by other Statle.pf em
igrants from other countries, Ity.4iving
the power exclusively to Congress, we
cannot fail to see that they could never
have left with the States a much more
important power—that is, the power of
transforming into citizens a numerous
class of persons, who in that character
would be much more dangerous to the
peace and safety of a large portion of
the Union than the few foreigners one
of the States might improperly natural.
ize. The constitution upon its adop
tion obviously took from the States all
power by any subsequent legislation to
introduce as a citizen into the political
family to the United Utates any one, no
matter where he was- born, or what
might be his eharaciir or condition ;
and it gave to Congoss tire power to
confer this character upon those only
who were born outside of the dominions
of the United States; ani no law of li tt
State, therefore, i gassethkr . ice the con
stitution was adopted, can give any right
of citizenship outside of its own terri
A clause similar to the one in the
constitution,, in relation to the rights
and immunities of citizens of one State
in the other States, was contained in-the
Articles of. Confederation. But there
is a difference of language, which is
worthy :of note. The provision in the
Articles of Confederation vvas,'"that the
free inhabitants .of each of the States,
phuperre, vagabon l as,:and.fugittves from
justiCe excepted,should be entitled to all
ihe` privileges and immunities of free
'citizens in the-several States."
It Will be obterved - that, under - this
Confederation, each State had the right
to decide for itself, and in its own trib
unals whom it would acknowledge as
a freeinhabitant of another State. The
tertiffreAin4abit'ditt . ,. in. the generality
