THE COUNTRY LASSIE.
She blossomed in the country,
Where sunny summer flings
Iler rosy arms about the earth,
And brightest blessings brings;
Ifealth was her solo inheritance,
And grace her only dower;
I never dreamed the wild wood
Contained so sweet a flower.
Far distant from the city,
And inland from tho sea,
My lassie bloomed in goodness,
As pure as puro could be ;
She caught ber dewy freshness
From hill and mountain bower,
sorer dreamed the wild wood
Contained so sweat a Given
The rainbow must havolent her
Some of its
The wild rose parted with a blush
That nestled on her face;
The sunbeam got entangled in
The long waves of her hair,
Or She had never grown to be
So modest and so fair.
The early birds have taught her
Their joyous matin song,
And some of their soft innocence--
She's been with thee] so long.
And fur her now, if need be,
I'd part with wealth and power ;
I never dreamed the wild wood
Contained so sweet a flower.
Found dead—dead and alone;
Them was nobody near, nobody near.
When the outcast died on the pillow of stone
No mother, no brother, no sister near,
Nor a friendly voice to soothe or cheer;
Not a watching e:ye or a pitying tear.
Pound dead—dead and alone
the roofless street, on a pillow of stood.
ATany a weary day went by,
While wretched and worn he begged for bread,
Tired of life and loving to lie
Peacefully down with the silent dead,
Hunger and cold, and scorn and pain,
Had wasted. his form and seared his brain.
At last on a bed of frozen ground,
With a pillow of store was the outcast fonnd.
Pound dead—dead and alone,
On a pillow of stone, in a roofless street—
Nobody heard his last faint moan,
Or knew when his sad heart ceases to beat.
No mourner lingered with tears or sighs,
But the stars looked down with pitying oyes,
And the chill winds pass'd with a wailing sound
O'er the lonely spot where the form was found.
Found dead--yet not alone;
There was somebody near, somebody near,
To claim the wanderer as his own,
And find a home for the homeless hero.
One when every human door
Is closed to children accursed and poor,
Who opens the heavenly portal wide—
Ali ! God was near when the outcast died,
A THRILLING ADVENTURE.
We question whether in all the his
tory of 'hair breadth escapes' a parallel
to the following can easily be found.—
The story was told us by an old and val
ued friend whose early days were spent
near the tragic adventure here recorded.
‘Ve give the story as related to us, in
the words of the hero
It was about the year 1795 that I
settled in Virginia near the falls of the
Kunawa. The country at that time was
an unbroken wilderness. But few set
tlements had been made then by the
whites, and they were so far apart as to
render vain all hopes of assistance in
case of an attack from hostile Indians
—numbers of whom still infested the

several months unmolested, and by dint
of perseverance, being then young and
hardy, had succeeded in making quite
a large clearing in the forest which I
had planted with corn, and which prom
ised an abundant yield.
'One morning, after we had dispatch
ed our humble meal, and I had just pre
pared to venture forth upon my regular
routine of labor, my attention was ar
rested by the tinkling of a cow bell in
'l'llere' snid my wife, 'the cow is in

of that sense. 1. was not so easily de
ceived. 1 listened—the sound was re
peated. 'That' said I, in reply to the
remark of my wife, 'was not the tinkle
of a bell upon the neck of a cow. It
is a decoy from seine •Indian who de
sires to draw me into an ambush.'
'Believing this to be the case I took
down my old musket (I had no rifle) and
seeing that it was properly "load Id, 1
stole cautiously around the field toward
the point from which the sound seemed
to proceed. As I had suspected, there,
in a cluster of bushes, crouched an In
dian waiting for me to appear in answer
to his decoy bell, that he might send
the • fatal bullet to my heart. I ap.
proached, without discovering myself
to him until within good shooting dis
tance, then raised my piece and fired.—
The bullet sped true to its mark, and
the Indian fell dead.
'Not knowing but that he; might be
accompanied by others I returned with
all speed to my cabin, and having firm
ly barricaded the door, I watched all
day from the port holes, in anticipation
of an attack from the companions of
the Indian I had killed. To add to the
danger, and seeming hopelessness of my
situation, I discovered that I had but
one charge of powder left. I could
make but one shot, and then, if attack
ed by numbers, I should be entirely in
their power. Determined to do the
best with what I had, I poured out my
last charge of powder and put it in my
musket with fifteen slugs and then wait
ed for . the approach of night, feeling
confident of an attack.. Night came at
last. A beautiful moonlight night it
was too, and this favorcd me greatly as
LEBANON, PA., WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 5, 1857.
I would thereby be able to Obserta the
movements of the encmy as they ap
proached my cabin. It Was some two
hours after nightfall' anti as yet I had
neither heard nor seen align of the In
dians, when suddenly I. was startled by
the baying of my' dog at the stable. I
knew .that the Indians Were Conning.—
The stable stood a little to the west of
the cabin, and between the two was a
patch of cleared ground, upon which
the light of the full moon fell unob

that in case our enemies. effected an en

With quick yet stealthy .step, in close
single file they -approached, and were
already within a few yards of the house,
when a slight change in the movement
of the forward Indian changed the po
sition of the entire six, so that a portion
of the left side of each Was uncovered.
They were all iri range—one aim would
cover all. Quick .as thought I aimed
and fired. As the smoke cleared away,
I could hardly credit what my senses
showed me as the result of my shot.--
The fifteen slugswith which I had load-
ed my musket had done their work well.
Five of the six Iridians lay dead upon
the ground, and the sixth had disap

the tears gushed from his eyes at the
memory of that eventful night, 'that was
a glorious shot—the best I ever made.'
The hero of this adventure lived to
see the rude wilderness where he had
pitched his lonely cabin, o ,transformed
into smiling fields, and peopled by hardy
and enterprising pale faces, among
whom his last days were passed in 'peace
and plenty,' undisturbed by the presence .
of his old time foes.

A VERN Cuerous , , WAX TO Sewn A.,LET
TEE.—It related by a celebrated his
torian Herodotus, that Histaus, tho
detained a prisoner by Darius,
an& all correspondence interdicted, he
shaved a man's head, wrote a despatch
upon it and kept the man out, of sight
till his hair was grown. The living
letter was then sent, and the person to
whom it, was addressed, upon shaving
the inessengoe,a head, found the news
Kindness, like grain, must be sown.
A S(ranac *ory.
Some years since an eccentric old
genius, whom for convenience we will
call Barnes, was employed by a farmer
living in a town some six or seven miles
westerly from the Penobscot river, to
dig a well. The soil and substratum
being mostly sand, .old Barnes, after
having progressed downwaid about for
ty feet, found one morning upon going
out.early to his work that the well had
essentially caved in and was nearly. full
to the top: So having that desire, which
men have, of knowing what be
said of them after they., are'dead, and
no one being yet
.astir, he concealed
himself in lt.rank growth of burdocks
by the side of a board fence near 'the
mouth of the Well, having first left his
hat and frock upon the, windlass over
the well. At length breakfast being
ready a boy was dispatched to call him
to .his meal, when lo! it was seen that
Barnes was buried in thegrave uncon
sciously. dug by his own hands. Thu
alarm being given, and the family as
sembled, it was decided first to cat
breakfast and then send for the coroner,
the minister, and
,his' wife and children.
Such apathy did not flatter Barnes' self
esteem a bit, but he waited patiently,"
determined to hear whatwas to be said,
and see what was tp,,belseen. •
Presently all parties arrived and be
gan "prospecting" the scene'of the Ca
tastrophe, as people usually db in such
cases. At length they drew together to
exchange opinions as to.i,vhat should be
done, The minister at , once gave it as
his opinion that they should leVel up .
the well and let Barnes remain : "for,"
said he, "he is now beyond the tempta
tion to sin • and in the day of judgment
it will make no difference whether be
is five feet under the ground or fifty, for
lie is bound to come forth in either'ease."
The coroner likewise agreed that "it
would be a needless ekpense to his fam
ily or the town to disinter him when he
Was so 'effectually buried" and them
fore entirely coincided with the minis
ter. His wife thought that is "he had
left his hat and frock, it would be hard
ly worth while to dig him out for the
rest of his. clothes," and so it was de
cided to let him remain.
But poor old Barnes, who had no
breakfast and was hot at all pleased
with the result of the -inquest, laid.qui.
et until the shades of evening stole over
the landscape; then he quietly decamp-.

inco'crnito for about three years, one
morning be suddenly appeared (hatless
and frockless as he werit):at the door of
the farmer for whom he had agreed to
dig the unfortunate well. To say that
an avalanche of questions were rained
upon him as to his mysterious reappear
ance &c., would convey but a feeble
idea of the excitement whiell his bodily
presence created. But the old man
bore it quietly, and at length informed
them that on finding himself bwricd he
waited for them to dig him out, until his
patience was exhausted, when he set to
work to dig himself out, and only the
day before had succeeded; for his ideas
being confused by the pressure of the
earth at the time he was buried, he bad
dug very much at random, and instead
of coming directly to •the surface he
came out in the town of Holden, six
miles cast of the Penobscot river!
No farther explanation was sought for
by those who were so distressed and sor-.
rowful over his supposed final resting.
Crinoline in Court.
A Lady Arrested and fined for obstruct
ing the Sidewalks.
One of the most extraordinary cases
ever brought before a legal tribunal was
witnessed in the Police Court on Satur
day. An officer complained of a young
and, remarkably handsome lady for ob.
mulcting the sidewalks of Washington
street by too great a display of Crinoline.
As it is understood that the lady is high
ly connected, we %will call her Mary
Smith, and not expose her true name.
Before the complaint was read, Judge
Rtissell inquired as to the whereabouts
of the prisoner. The officer repli ed
that the lady was waiting in the entry ;
that himself and two ethers had endea
vored to squeeze her uirou g h the door
ways, but they were too narrm, and he
wished the. Judge's advice iirtlie prem

ry case—the constitution guaranteed to
every one an open trial, arg,l he would

he recommended Wat, Miss Smith be
moved from the entry to the front door,
and he thought that she musr spread con
siderable not to ho able to take her place
in the prisoner's dock.
The experiment was tried and • found
to answer„ admirably—the door being
some twenty feet wide, very 'little com
pression was needed—arid with a frown
of indignatioa upon her pretty brow Miss
Smith found herself face to face with the
judge and listened to the complaint which
was read to her.
The officer testified that half a dozen
times-during the week he, had been oblig.
ed to step irom the sidewalk to enable
ihc defendant to pass. Once he came
very near being run over by a passing ,
carriage, and he inquired of the judge
whether the city government would
have allowed a pension to his widow in
case he had been killed. V• •
The - judge said that he should reserve
his opinion until some time next week
on that point, and inquired whether the
eiteumference of the lady was not pro
duced by naturrl causes.
The-poliec officer' said that he was
the father of sixteen children, and, if
he was lucky, he expected an - addition
to his family next month. lie had ne'v.

not to stop on the sidewalk, Els people
were unable to pass tivithout going,,into
the street, which at times, was incon

shoes, owing to the outrageous manner
in which the thoroughfares -were kept. •
The court, in summing up, said that

should be checked by vigorous measures.

great a display of crinoline came, but

hoped it would be a warning. The fine
was promptly paid and Miss Smith was
A Valuable Discovery.
Green Corn for Food throughout the year.
We have been made acquainted with
a novel Old highly useful discovery
which is destined to effect something of
a revolution in the domestic provision
market. Mr. David RoWe, of tills coun
ty, has for several years devoted. much
attention to the curing and preserving
of Corn for table use, so as to avoid the
trouble of packing in air-tight cans, of
of boiling or oven-drying it, or the
trouble and expense of maclihiell in
manufacturing it into hominy.
Mr. Rowe is known as an ; excellent
mill-wright, and he is alsd the inventor
of some most useful agricultural imple
ments—having invented and construct
ed some of the best grain drills and
corn planters now in use. lie has now
discovered and invented a process of
preserving green corn in the car, so that
it does not cefrupt or gather mould, but
retains all the juice and tastes and other
qualities of the "milky grain." He
"plucks the ear of corn, in roasting etlf
time," and places it on the table in the
winter - seascin, either shelled - or in ears,
with all the tender and delicious quali
ties of the fresh grain ; and in thiii state
it is a much cheaper and more desirable
dish than the ordinary boiled and dried
(Shaker) corn or hominy. One of the
great advantages of tills discovery, is
that whole fields of corn can now be
collected and stored in ware-houses for
transportation or export to any part of
the world. Last summer,. Mr. Rowe
prepared and put up eight bushels of
corn by this proCedscond it still retains
all the sweetness and milk of the new
After years of labor and close inves•
li g ation devoted to this subject. Mr.
Rowe has fully accomplished his pur
pose ; and after careful examination in
to the merits of the discovery; and a
practical test 'of some of the 'grain thus
prepared, the United States Patent Of
fice, on the 30th of June, granted the
inventor a patent on the following claim;
" What t claim as my discovery and
invention is the ne_w_art and process of
preserving green corn in the ear, by ex•
tracting the pith of the cob and season
ing and drying the inside of the cob as
rapidly as the outside, for preserving the
virtues and juice of the grain, and pre
venting the collection of - mould or cor
ruption, as herein described; and for the
purposes set forth."
Mr. Rowe is at present preparing
conitnient znaehincs, not larger than a
small model commonly used for paring
apples, by : which every housekeeper can,
in one evening, prepare ten or fifteen
bushels of corn for his own use; and in
winter it is boiled like green corn, and
becomes the finest dish that can be
placed on the table.—Lanc. Intel.. •
Valve of Clover. Ilgy•—II. Capron,
of Illinois, who has been largely con
cerned in the dairy business, (having
sold $43000 worth of milk in a single
year,) informs.us, says-the Country Gee-.
&man, that he made accurate exp'eri
ments Lb test the comparative ,value of
timothy and clover hay. These experi
ments extended titre - ugh a period of two
years, were accompanied with accurate
weighing and measuring, and. the food
was changed from timothy to, vice versa
once a month, and results were that the
clover' hay .ttniforinly yeilded*en per
cent. more mill: than the timothy. It
will be observed that this was not.a sin
gle eperiment, but a, series of experi
ments extending for a long period. It
is also proper to state that the clover
was well cured.
