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 ,airy grace, 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 Found dead—dead and alone; Them was nobody near, nobody near.

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, Bizultaattritz. 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 neighborhood. '1 lived here alone with my wife for 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 the cornfield. 'l'llere' snid my wife, 'the cow is in the cornfield. 'But the ear of the backwoodsman be comes by education, very acute, espe cially so from the fact that his safety of ten depends upon the nice cultivation 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 structed. -Judging hem the noise at the stabld that they wfMlll'advance from that direction, _ I pciSted myself at the .port hole on that sidt the cabin. had previously placed my, wife up- . on the cross polo in the chimney, so that in case our enemies. effected an en trance in the cabin she Might climb out through the low chimney and .effect her escape. For myiell I. entertained no hope; but, determined not to he taken alive, I resolved to sell my life dearly. 'With breathless imXiety I watched at the port hole. At length l'saw them. emerge from the shadow of the stable end advance across the vacant ground . toward my cabin. One—two—three-- great heaven six stalwart Indians arm ed to the teeth, and urged on by the hope of reveng e. I alone to op pose them, with butione charge of post der. My case was desperate indeed.— 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 peared. 'Although no enemy was now in sight I did. not venture forth until morning. There lay the bodies of the five Indians undisturbed, together with the rifle of the other. Securing the arms and am munition of the fallen Indians,..l. follow ed up the trail of the missing one, un til,it reached the river, beyond whish . point I could discover: no trace whatev er. From-the anjwit of blood which ma r t ire trail-et °et-Orem-44h- the'- un mistakable evidence that he had picked his way with difficulty; I was led to be lieve that he had been mortally wound ed, and in order to prevent his body 'from faliirg into the ban& of his white foe, he had groped his way to the river and thrown himself into the current, which-had borne him away. The Indians bad killed my cow, and that you may be assured was.no trifling loss,-yet in my gratitude for my escape from the merciless savages, I would have been entirely willing to have made gfeater sacrifices. I was well provided (by meansPf arms and ammunition tak en from the six Indians,) in case of a second attack, but this, fortunately, proved to -be my last adventure with the savages. Not one of the band had es caped to tell the -tale, and incite his brethren to -avenge the death of their comrades. !' exclaimed the old man, while 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. INFORMATION WANTED.—There is now in this city, says a Fort Dodge pa per, at the house of Major Williams, a little boy who escaped the bloody mas sacre by the Indians ,at Springfield, M. 'l'., on the 26th of Maf'ch last, and who was brought to town by the volunteers who went up to the rescue. tre says his name is John Sidman Stewart. We learn from some of the survivors of the massacre that he is.the- ton of Josiah Stewart ; forinerly of 4ndiana county, Pa. The boy says that his grandfather's name was Fleming; .prob - ably his mo4h er and two little sisters, are among the murdered. Also, a young lady,'about - sixteen or seventeen years of age, named Elizabeth Gardner, whose family was . also Alfler cd, she only escaping the horrid fate.— She says her father's name was Rolland Gardner, but she *news not the resi. deuce of any relaiive. Her father im migrated from the State of Indiana, and was formerly from Steuben county, N. Y. Both are delirous of heating from their relativs,,,if they 'have any ; and all communications in reference to them, addressed. to• Major 'Williams, Fort Dodge, Webster CounCy,lowa, will be pr.omptlylnswead. They will be kind ly cared for• till such times as digit. friends shall come for them. 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 there inscribed. 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-. ed to parts-unkuovvii.- Afterremaining 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. place. 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 ises. Judge said that — it was an extraordina ry case—the constitution guaranteed to every one an open trial, arg,l he would not hold a session In the entry even .to pleasevarlady. Under_ the circumstances 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.

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 corn itself. 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.

We respectfully call the attention of persons d. bout to build, to f:ur inralnable method or reeling, now much used, Of:engi:At the principal cities of the 'United States acid their vicinities. This mode of roofing- having all the combined requisites of cheapness, Durability, and Security against tiro and Water, and AispenSing with high gable walls; the roofs require an inclination of nut more than three-qUartets nof all inch to the foot, and in many eases saving the,entife cost of rafters—the ceiling joist being used. The gutters are made of the smile without any, extra charges ; consequently,. Out roofs are put up at alnfost half the cost of either Tin, Slate, or Shingles. The. material being of an inipefishalthi haters/ it surpasses all others in Dtraltility ;=beshles, ill case of any casualty, it is the most easily fepaireld of any othek tool' now in use. Yet, the best'proof . we can offer as to its being both &re and water proof, aro oar tdany ro ijirences, to any one of whom we are at liberty to refer. N.

The materials being mostly non-eondnetors of hest, no roof is so cool iti SUMMAT ~ or so warm in hinter.
