A Heminiscuxce. How the lXews of
Peaicwas Received in 1810. Yars ogo
the office of th'i old Gazette was in Hano
ver square, Boston, near tho corner of
Pearl bireet. It was a placo of resort
for news and conversation, especially in
the evening. The evening of February
15, 18I5,was cold, and at a lato hour only
Alderman Sebra aud another gentleman
were left with father Lang, the genius of
the place. The office was about being
closed, when a pilot rushed in, and stood
for a moment so entirely exhausted as to
be unable to speak.
'Ho has great news!" exclaimed Mr'
Presently the pilot, gasping for brca'b,
whi-pered intelligibly "Peace 1 Pcaco !"
The gentlemen lost their breath ns fast
as tho pilot gained his- Directly the pilot
was able to say
"An Knglish sloop.ii below, with news
of a treaty of peace 1"
They say that Mr. Ling exclaimed in
greater words than ever he used before
and all hands rushed into Hanover square
exclaiming "Peace! Peace"
The windows flew up for families llf
cd tbcro then. No sooner wero the. in
mates sure of tho sweet sound of peaco,
than the windows begun to glow with

of course sker thejdeer, aud if he fired at
tuo deer he would "skcr," the turkcys,"a3
he only had one load left ho would resort
to said strategy. Taking out a pocket
knife, ho split tho ball in half and ram
mod down one ball, and then broke off
the blade of his knifo and rammed that
also down, in tho centre of his rifle bar
rcl, and then forced the other, part of tho
ball home, ono half of tho ball now being
on ono sido of the bls'do and the other, he
(David) brought his rifle to an aim at tbe
deer, and then as quiok as a flash of gross
ed lightening he drew off andjfirod at tho
turkey's which split the limb on wbioh
the turkeys had been roosting. He hail
now done what ho wanted to do, ono half
of his bullet lodged in thu brain of the
deer, which killed him as dead as a door
nail, and the ethor half ball split tho limb
on which the turkeys had been standing,
which wont together as soon, as th ball
had traversed the limb, and caught the
turkeys by llicfect. Davy then climbed tho
trco and cut the limb off, which fell into
tho creek, going in tho creek for to drag
the limb on shoro, he thought he was get
ting heavy in his legs all at onco, pulling
off his boots he recoiled with terror,for out
of his boots rolled fish lo tho amount of five
