member of Sherman'e zelebmted battery, and under
the immediate command of Captain It. B. Ayres.—
Threugh the exposure attendant upon my arduous du
ties, I was attacked in November last with inflammation
of the lungs, and was for seventy-two days in the hos
pital. This was followed by great qlebility, heighten
ed by an attack of dysentery. I was then 'removed
from the White Rouse, and sent to this city on board
the Steamer "State of Maine." from which I landed
on the 28th of June. Since that time I have been a
bout as low as any one could be and still retain a spark
of vitality. For a week or more I was' scarcely able to
swallow anything, and if I did force a morsel down, it
was immediately thrown up again.- ' •

and, accordingly, the physicians who had been work
ing faithfully, though unsuccessfully, to rescue me
from the grasp of the dead Archer, frankly told me
they could do no more for me, and advised me to see

THE AMBER RING.
It was a cold winter night! I sat
by the fire of a German inn ; not far
from me was Carl Von Arc heim.—
We were both members of the Ger.
man University. The fire blazed fit
fully, wreathing itself in glowing spi
rals around the huge logs that were
slowly being consumed. I was about
to go off in a doze, when, suddenly,

Again the horrid reality Of my con.

fainted again. 'Rallying my strength
I told them to leave me . as I wished
to be alone. The physician gave
them a sign, and all went out. I lay
for some moments longer, trying to
reflect upon myisituation. At length
I rose up And paced the room.
A desire for vengeance had seized
upon me. A`thousand schemes sug
gested themselves to me, by which I
could obtain satisfaction; but none
of them seetnedlto content my mor
bid imaginaticrq. I looked about the
'room. In one fiprner I spied a large,
iron-bound chestovhich Carl Was ai

Why might not-this chest contain se

must have carro the key which
unlocked it in 'his pocket. I felt. for
the liey ; sure enough, There was a
.large , orre there.-i I took it out and
'tried 'the lock *yielded, and I open
ed the chest. '
1 There was no hing in it, except
some tihetnicals, everal old, wrinkled,
and yellow pa ehments, and, in• a
small box by itself, an amber ring.—
I had a presentiinent that, with these
means, I was Ix) work My deliver

large rolls they Were, filled with dia

What! Had be days of tragic,

calling the pewee of. darkness to the

ies of nature revlaled and examined
and dissertations of a metaphysical
character on thek mind of man, and
its unknown affinities with the world
of spirits. All WMapparently writ
ten long ago ; itonfght, be centuries.
I sat all day studying the mysteri•
ous writings. N,ight came; and, af
ter obtaining a 1 little nourishment
for the body, that was mine for the
time being, I lit lamp, and, locking
the door, still eo tinned to pore upon
these wonderful manuscripts, that
were revealing to•• me, with every line
read, strange secrets, which would
make my power over mankind irre
An that was demanded for the
possessor of this secret knowledge

Already I seemed• to grasp revenge.
With that amber ring, and the knowl•

Over the way was the mansion of
the baron, the father of Rena. It
was lit up with . a thousand brilliant
lights. I beard the sound of "music
and dancing. As I looked from my
window I saw passing by the oppo•
site window and inside the gorgeous
drawing-room, Rena and Carl, arm

at the sight of them. smiled with
secret exultation. Going to my •ta:.

FIVE TIMES A *WIDOW.,
The Boston Atlaa translates the
following,story from a late French
There has recently arrived in Paris
a young English lady, already the
widow of her fifth husband.
This remarkable chance, this un
common series of widowhoods is the
more extraordinary that, the lady in
question has T 1 ot t 'reached, her tWenty
fth year. The history of her sever
al marriages is so strange as a whole
and in its particulars, that we should
hardly dare to relate them,.
The saloons of the English, and al
most the only ones that remain open
in this season of general desertion,
dispute for the honor of this young
widow, and from them we.derive the
following narrative of her conjugal
Mrs. was not quite sixteen
years of age when she contracted her
first marriage at Gretna Green.
This matrimonial locality is suffi
cient evidence that it was a purely
sentimental union. Two rivals dis
puted for her young affections; one
was favored by her family, the other
by herself; the latter of course was
the successful one.
In order to set aside all obstacles
our two young people had recourse to
an elopement, and put in requisition
the famous blacksmith who unites
enamored English couples at a mo
ment's warning, and without asking
the consent of the relatives.
The nuptial benediction bad just
been pronounced when the unsuccess
ful rival appeared- He had followed
the fugitives with alt the speed his
gold could obtain from the postillions;
but the fugitives ' bad a night's start
of ,him, and the rival was only able to
arrive just soon enough to - bo two
hours too late.
"You had a useless chase, my dear
sir,' said the bridegroom, happy. and
prod of his success. 'For we are al
may be so,' said the other; 'hut
1 have at least come in time to be re
. In accepting this challenge the
bridegroom requested that the meet
ing be postponed to the next ()ay; but
his jealous rival would not consent to
this gratification. They must repair
at once to the spot with the first sec ,
onds they could meet. The duel was
fought with pistols, and the, bride
groom, struck by a ball fn the fore
head, fell, never to rise again:
So Mrs. became a widow two
hours after the celebration of her first
marriage. This adventure made such
a talk and led to so many _scandalous
rumors, that a second marriage could
only allay them, Besides the young
widow bad known so little of married
life that she very naturally desired
to continue the chapter from the in ,
teresting point where it was unfortu
nately, broken off.
in order to efface as Much
as possible the consequences of her
first fault4Oor which she had been so
severely,-punished, Mrs.— submit
ted-to the wish,of her 'parents in the
choice of her second husband.
They made for her a reasonable
choice, selecting—a man of mature
years and offering every possible
guarantee. Ile was an old retired
merchant, possessing a large fortune
honorably adkuired. • This was prob
ably not the happiness dreamed of by
a soul so poetical and so enamored ;
but Mrs. -- adapted herself to her
new Situation, and bad not yet en
countered- those holloW' deceptions
and bitter deceits of life before her
htisband found it necessary to attend
to. some business which required his
presenee on the continent. Lie left
alone, and in crossing the channel the
steamboat was overtaken by a tern
pest and dashed ,upon the rocks of
the coast. This shipwreck made Mrs.
a widow for the second time.
In her misfortune she naturally
looked about. for consolation, which
is anything but difficult to procure
for young widow who united to her
own personal attractions a very con
sidei-able fortune. Among those at
tentive to her she favored a young
'and showy yOutb / , flit] of grace and
'Wit,. who seemed So her, to unite all
that would; beati'doesele'ter . for the

With no knberitance 'to look forward

by which she could escape the embar

There was no time Lo be lost; she

therefore besTirred herself;
as if to recompense for her trials, sent
her .a husband of the first class, a
young, rich and handsome baronet,
quite famous on the turf. He had no
passion for cards, but on the other
band, he gave himself up with unre
strained ardor to-horse-racing, and in
his exercise he made use of his purse
and his own person, staking large
sums in bets, and risking himself with
his horses for the prize in steeple
Fortune bad nnlt %has far affected
his finances; his profits and losses
were nearly balanced ; but he was
less successful as a rider that he was
with his bets. His, own person was
less fortunate than his purse. When
he rode himself, he Was more often
thrown off his horse than OA to a
light of his own accord. So far from
being discouraged, these falls rather
stimulated to endeavor; and this no
ble verseverance had already costbirit
several teeth, as well as, an arm and
some ribs broken.
Ills family and friends hoped that
marriage would make him a little
more prudent ; and for a short time
he abstained from appearing on the
turf, in 'order to devote himself en•
tirely to his wife; but as soon as he
got used to this peaceful felicity his
former passion returned, and he
thought he could unite the pleasures
of hymen and the race-course. Sev
eral of the best riders in England
had engaged in a contest at the New
market races; he joined them, mount

in the race, and fell ; this time so dis

Such are the events which consti

and it, is in consequence of these ca

fifth time in the very ,morning of her
life. But after thus' - having gained,
or rather lost, in the lottery of wid

chance which has so far been so ob

Oliver Cromwell, among tie many
remarkable traits of character, seems
to have possessed a full share of that
rather uncommon article, "common
sense." An old maxim says that if
you would be certain to have a Wink
done right, do it yourself; and Croth.
well seems to have been a man very
little given to leaving things to
chance. Thus a curious extract froitt
the Earl of Orrery's State Letter's,
shows how Cromwell him - self, dit
guised as a sittiplatrodper, intercepted
one of the messengers of the king;
and possessed himself of a very
portant letter. Most commanders
would have employed some trusty
officer, of a low-grade, for such an
enterprise - bill 'Cromwell did 'not
want any - failute in the 'matter, and
therefore undertook the job in his
own person, attended by one of
chief men. The whole 'account is
so curious and in'teresting, that we
quote it as. follows:
While Cromwell was meditatinic
how he could best "come in" wits
Charles, one of his spies—of the kin
bedchamber—informed him that his
final doom was -decreed; and that
what it was might be found tint by
intercepting a letter sent from the
king to the queen, wherein he declar
ed what he would do. The letter, he
said, was sewed up in the skirt of 4
saddle, and the bearer of it would,
come with the saddle upon his head
that night to the Blue Boar Inn, in
Holborn; for there he was to take
horse and go to Dover with it. This
messenger knew nothing of the Latte 3.
in the saddle;
but some persons at
Dover did. Cromwell and Ireton.,
disguited as troopers, taking with
them a trusty fellow, went to the inn
in Holborn; and this man watched
at the wicket, while the troopers con=
tinued drinking beer tilt about tell
o'clock, when the sentinel at the gate
gave notice that the man with the
saddle was come in. Up they got-,
and, as the man was leading out his
horse saddled, they,. with drawn
swords, declared they were to search
all who went in and out there; but,
as he looked like an honest man they
would only search his saddle. Upon
this they ungirt the saddle and car
ried it into the stall where they had
been drinking, and left the horeetnith
with the sentinel; then, ripping up
one of the skirts of the saddle, they
found the letter, and gava - back the
saddle to the man, who,
what be had done, went away to Do
ver. They then opened the letter;
in which the king told the queen that
be thought he should close with the
Scots. Cromwell and Ireton then
took horse and went to Windsor
and, finding they were not likely to
have any tolerable terms from the
king, they immediately from that
time forward resolved:his ruin..
When estates are not entailed i
England, such is .the influence of wt.
ample and custom, that they are of.
ten handed down from fathet to son
for long genekatious. Corroboratitrel
of tbk, we find the following facts in
a recent number of au English peri- - -
The interesting and - often quoted
statement made some time since by*
Lord Palmerston, respecting the an.
interrdpted descent for nearly eight
centuries, froin father. to Son, of a
small estate in his own neighborhood
in thenew forest, relates, as is well
known ; to the family of Pork* thill
Hine Wittier, who picked up the body
of William Rufus, and carried it in
his humble cart to Winchester to re=
ceive the last sad rites. But we can
place upon record a case of still long
er descent of a small property among
persons, in no way allied to rank and
fortune,and who have never risen a
bove the condition, of yeomen; while;
we believe, they have never fallen be
low it. At Ambrose's Barn, on the
borders of the parish of Thorpe, near
Chertsey, still resides a farmer of the
name of Wopshot, whose ancestors
have lived, without a break, upon the
same spot, ever since the reign of Al
fred ,be Great, by whom the farra
was granted to Reginald Wopshot,- , •--L
There are several families among our
untitled gentry—the coUnti aristoc
racy, who can trace their hathee and,
possessions in a direct male descent
back to the Saxon times; but betow
that rank we are not aware of, a more
striking instance of permanence a
mong change than the past history .
of the Wopshots. •
There is something very pleasant
in this lone coetinuanger,ofan estate
in the same
,familp—but we are afraid
that It is, often the
.teattif; of consider
able injustice to •the yonngef sons
and daughters. The claims of the'
latter to a fair and equal portion of
father's property, must of course - be'
sacrificed to the dignity of the estate
and of the family name. IS -it not
