whose copious detail on this subject leaves':
nothing to 'be supplied. We forbear giving'
them, as personal publication would answer no
good purpose. They were in command of 'a
body of men, about sixty in number, known as ,
the Georgia Refugees. Upon the minds of
these men the offenders had already sought to '
act, in reference to the 'expected collision with
their General. Marion made his preparation
with his ordinary quietness, and then despatch.'

he added, •• let him for it hiniself."-When
this reply was communicated to Marion, he
instructed [lorry to renew the command; His
purpose seems to have been, discovering the
temper of the offender, to gain the necessary
time. His officers. meanwhile, were gather

valve not only the safety al his brigade. but'
his own future uselessness'. Hurry, however.
with, proper spirit, entreated not to 'be sent
again to the offender, giving as a reason for
his reluctance, that in consequence of the pre
vious rudeness of the 'other, he was not in a
mood to tolerate a repetition of the indignity,
and might if irritated, be provoked to viotenee.
Marion then despatched his orderly to the
guilty major, with a request, eivlily worded,'
that he might see him at head quarters. He

refused to deliver it, alledging that •• Croft was

made to this suggestion.

In the regular service, and with officers ec
costomed to, and bred up in the severe and
stern sense of authority, which is usually
thought necessarry to a proper discipline, the
refractory offender would' most' probably have
been hewn down in the moment of his obedi

present instance might have been of the most
flial•character. • The' esprit du corps 'might
have piompted the immediate followers of the
offender to have-seized•tipon the weapons, and

The Miser', Beath.
An old man sat by a sreless hearth.
Tho' the night was dark and chill,
And mournfully over the frozen earth,
The wind sobbed loud and ahrilL
His locks were grey, and hit eyes were grey,
And dim but not with tears,
And his skeleton form was wasted away
With penury more than years.
A rush-light was casting its fitful glare
O'er the damp and dingy walls,
Where the listl had made his slimy lair
And the venomous spider crawls.
Bat the meanest thing in this loathsome room,
Was that miser all worn and bare;
Where he set like a ghost in an empty tomb,
On his broken and only cbair,
He had bolted the windomand bared the door
And every nook he had seann'd,
And felt their fastenings o'er end o'et
With his add sod skinny hand;
And yet he, sat gating intently around
And trembled with ',lent fear,
And started and shuddered at every sound
That fell on hilvovrard ear
Ha! ha ! laughed the miser—Fm safe at lut
From this night so cold and drear ;
From the drenching rein and the driving blast
With my gold and erith my treasure here.
am cold and wet wide The icy rain,
And my health is bad, Nis true
Yet if I should light fire again

It Was given long since by a friend of mitre
I haselept it for mazy years. , •
So he drew a flask from a mouldy nook, ~
And drank of its \ ruby tile, .
And his - eye grew dim with each draught he took,
And his bosom swell'd with pride.
" Let me see—let me see" raid the miser then

I'o `heap up my glittering store ;

Or an emperor could bestow.
" From the Orient realms I have rubies bright ,

And pearls like the morning dew :
And more have, ere the morrow's stn

Shall bring me her bridal ring."
He tum'd old worm-eaten chest.
And cautiously raised the lid,
And then it shone like the cloths of the west
With Site sun in their splendor dip ;
And gem after gem of its precious atom
He raised with exulting smile,
And counted, and counted them o'er and o'er,
In many a glittering pile.
