CHANBERSBURG, PA., WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 9, 1865,
They come through the green still ways
To their peaceful homes once more,
To lie in the shade through the summer days
Till their weariness is o'er,
And the silene s growit a familiar thing
After the battle's roar.
They are strong in limb and look,
And forget to heed the rain ;
And drink at every babbling brook,
And sleep on the 'open plain ;
For the night-mists fall in harmless dew
On their oaken bark and gmin.
The children count the mmrs
On their faces one by one;
And the maidens that tWinkle out like stars
After the set of sun,
Draw shyly near to hear theist tell
How the bloody fight was won.
They are heroes one and all
To these gentle ones they meet ;
And the yokes of love that to them call
Were never more soft and sweet;
And towanl what once was a hopeless dream
They now may tarn their feet.
They are the nation's pride,
And its living memory
Of the noble hearts that bravely died
Beside them on land and sea ; '
And at their feet are the highest gilts
Of a thankful people free.
At a way-side inn, on the old road that then
ran between Philadelphia and in the
State of Pennsylvania, a very strange and curious
affair occurred in the fall of 1797. One dark,
rainy, disagreeable night, a mounted traveller,
well muffled up in a great coat, with its broad cape
turned up over his beadlike a cowl, his chin and
lower part of his face buried in a large bandana
handkerchief, and with abroad black patch over
his right eye, rode up to the tavern and called
for supper and lodging. At the large fire burning
in the chimney of the bar-room he sat and warmed
and dried himself, while his meal waebeing pre
pared, without removing any of his garments, not
even so-much asthis hat, and when the landlord at
length announced that his repast was ready; ha
simply remarked : '
" I have severe pain 'in my face--so you mast
excuse my going to the table as-I am."
He ate his supper in silence, showed no dispo
sition for conversation; called fora strongglass of
brandy and water, and soon after asked to be con
ducted to his room, adding that he was very much
" By the way," he said to the landlord, who in
person lighted him to his bed-room, " I may as
well leave my pocket-book and watch in your
possession till morning," at the same time hand
ing these articles to the host, who took them with
some reluctance, saying:
"I reckon they'd be qujte as safe here with
yourself—though I'll keethem for you, if you
,wish me to." •Z.
" You'll oblige me by doing so," rejoined the
"Well, then," said the innkeeper, " I must know
how much money you've got here, if I've got to
be responsible for it" -
"Please open the pocket-book then and count
for yourself," returned the stranger.
The host did so and said—
"l make it two hundred and fifteen dollars."
"Right!" rejoined the traveller, "and while
I'm about it, I may as well add this purse, which
contains fifty-one dollars in specie." --
The landlord also counted the coin, part gold"
and part silver, said the amount was right, and
went out, bidding the other good night!
About two o'clock in the morning, a neighbor,
living within stone's throw of the tavern, and who
chanced to be up with a sick child, fancied he
heard, above the roar of the storm, which had
increased in violence, a wild shriek, fullewed by -
twu cries of " Help! Murder!"
He was a "rather timid, man, and was much
alarmed. lie blew out his light cautiously, open
ed the door, looked out and listened. The storm
beat into Iris face and howled around his dwelling,
but he could see nothing not even a light at the
inn, and he heard nothing more that sounded like
a human voice. He shut the door and fastened
it and then woke up his wife and told her all. •
She happened to be a woman or unusaal nerve
and courage, and after putting a few questions re
plied with a yawn :
" Oh, Jim, it was" only one of your fancies !
You are always heating something that nobody
else does ! Just thiilk how many times you have
hunted the house overfor robbers, since I've lived.
with you. Just tend t.‘4 Mary will you, and let me
get a little sleep, for y oh know I didn't have any
" I know it wasn't a fancy, but a real human
cry!" grumbled-the man as he walked away and
allowed his drowsy spouse to return to her dreams.
The dull, leaden gray of morning was lust. be
ginning to dispel the inky blackness of the-stormy
night when the landlord of the wayside inn was
aroused by a series of thundering knocks upon
the outer door of his habitation-. He sprung out
of bed; hastily drew on his trowsers and-boots,
took his waistcoat in- his hand and hurried down
to his supposed customers. On opening the door
be found himself confronted by two rough looking
men, well muffled up against the storm, which as
yet had scarcely Abated its fury. Their heroes
panting, splashed with mud, with drooping heads,
were hitched at the nearest post, and showed by
their looks that they had been ridden fast and far.
" Did a mounted traveller stop at this inn last
night ?" abruptly inquired one of the two.
Yes," was the answer.
" Is he here still ?"
" He is."
" Will you describe his appearance?"
"As well as I can," said the wondering, host,
" for I didn,t get to see much of his face," and he
not only proceeded with a description of his per
son,hut added all that the traveller had said and
done, including the affair of the money.
"I think we've got him this time !" said the one
whohad addressed the landlord, turning to his
" It looks like it," was the reply, " but he's no
doubt 9 desperate fellow, and we had better pro
ceed with canton till we make all sure!"
"Hark you, landlord !" said the first speaker,
in a low tone, "a word in your private ear. We
are officers of justice from Philadelphia, in pursuit
of a bank robber, and we suspect your strange
guest.to he the man we seek! Here is the war
rant for his arrest. Now conduct us quietly to
his room, and if need be, assist us in securing
"Certainly," said the host, turning somewhat
pale, as it was afterwards remembered, and seem
ing nut a little agitated. -
"Walk in gentlemen—tins way gentlemen."
He conducted them into the bar-room and hur
riedly struck a light, for it was yet too dark to
see anything distinctly.
"I hope the fellow has not heard us," -said one
of the officers, drawing a pistol, while the other
produced a pair of handcuffs.
."I hope it won't be necessary to shoot, gentle
men," said the host, with increased agitation.
"We will all go up softly and try his door,"
said the officer with the-pistol, "mid if vve find it
fast perhaps it will be better for us to remain on
guard and wait till he comes out himself."
The host, light in hand, led the way, though
with seeming reluctance as if not over anxious.
Ou reaching the door, which the three patties
had approached with light stealthy steps, the land
lord tried jt very gently, and finding it unfastened,
slowly pushed it open and went in, followed by
the officers. The next moment the inn-keeper
"exclaimed, in a tone of alarm and agitation—
" Gracious heaven! what's the meaning of this ? "
The bed was tumbled, but vacant; no traveller
was there—and the sheets and pillow cases were
stained with blood!
The officers looked meaningly at each other,
and then at the host, who, pale and trembling,
sunk half fainting upon the nearest seat. For a
few moments' there-was a deep and ominous si
lence, and then one of the officers said, slowly
and with pointed emphasis:
"Landlord, this is very strange." . •
,"The strangest thing I ever knew," fairly gasp
' eil the inn-keeper, glancing around him in fright

officer, "what does this mean, if not some foul

as innocent as a child unborn.. And now I re
member-too, when I went to the door to let you

I fastened it myself before I went to bed."
"We certainly do suspect you sir," said the of
ficer, " for how can we help it, since the man is
gone, as you have confessed, and you have his
money in your possession!"
" But he gave me the money to keep for him,"
cried the frighted host, " and I. have got it yet."
" Undoubtedly you have, but that you see, so
far from proving you know nothing of the affair,
only tends to make the matter worse for you."
"Perhaps he's about yet somewhere," sugges

heard your knocks, he'd be quite likely to hide
himself or run away I should'tlunk."
The idea was worthy of attention and a search

looking under the bed blood was discovered on
the floor, and the trail of this was found to lead
out 'of the room down stairs out the front door—
'showing that the object of search,eitherliving or
dead, had gone out of the house. Beyond the
building there were no traces for the storm had
obliterated them. The hostler was called, the
only other man about the house, but he appear
ed to be a kind.of stupid fellow, and evidently
knew nothing of the matter, and a look in the
barn showed the strangers horse still there.
About an }lour later the neighbor mentioned
came over to the inn, in agitation and alarm, said
there was a man lying by the roadside, and also
stated what be bad heard during the night.
• All hurried to the scene of the tragedy, and
there beheld the body of a believed,
Of forty, which the officers believed, from its gen

were seeking, but' whether that of the stranter,
who had lodged at the tavern, no one could fell.
The body was covered with blood, and the man

Throughout that thinly peopled section the
news spread rapidly, and before night a large
number of exulted:spectators, including the Sher

at the inn. An inquest was held and a verdict
rendered , in accordance with the facts, and though
there was no direct evidence against the landlord,
yet suspicion so strangely pointed to him as the
murderer, that he was, taken intr custody and
committed for trial.
In due lime the trial came on, but the jury
could not agree, and Was finally discharged. A
second trial resulted like the first and the mn

,THE SKELETON IN THE WELL.
It was during the year, 161, in the thriving
little town of Argentiere, near the foot of the Ce
vennes Mountains, in France. The day was
charming. Many of the inhabitants were trav
ersing the highways, enjoying the agreeableness
of the weather, Among the number there was a
tall young man, apparently. not more than twen
ty-five years of age. In his right hand be carried
a cane, and in his left a small carpet-bag His
gait was quick, and from , his expression he ap
peared to be bent upon some important errand
In this manner he went along, occasionally glanc
ing around to view the surrounding objects. He
had hardly gone more than a quarter of a mile
when he came to a street, which was in the su
burbs of the town. He turned and proceeded up
this. Presently after walking but a short dis
tance, he arrived at an inn. -Here- he hesitated ;
and after viewing th exterior. he muttered to
himself the followinekords
"It is very singular that this is *le first inn I
have seen throughout my route. However I will
put up here."
So saying he entered the building, and having
registered his name, he was shown to a room.
After ordering his dinner he went into his apart
nient to rest himself. His order 'was immediate
ly responded to, and after eating he prepared to
retire, intending to partake of a long and hearty
sleep, so that early next morning he might visit
the various merchants of the town. He accord
ingly went to bed, and was soon wrapt in sleep.
While thus sleeping he had a dream that made
the strongest impression upon 'him. 'We will
give, it as from the lips of the dreamer:
"I thought that I had arrived at the same town,
but in the middle of the evening, which was really
the case; that I had put up at the same inn, and
gone immediately, as an unacquainted stranger
would do, in order to see whatever was worthy
of observation in the place. I walked down the
main street into another street apparently leading
into the country. I had gone no great distance
when I came to a church, which I stopped teex
awine. Atter satisfying my curiosity I advanced
to a by-path which branched off from the main
street: Obeying an impulse which I could neither
oceount fur nor control, I struck into this path,
though it was winding, rough, and unfrequented,
and presently reached a miserable cottage, in front
of which was a garden ' covered with weeds. I
had no great difficulty in getting into the garden,
for the hedge had several wide gaps in it. I ap
proached an old well that stood solitary and gloo
my in a distant corner; and looking down into it,
without any possibility - of mistake, a corpse
which had been stabbed iu several places. I
counted deep wounds and - wide gashes. There
At this moment he an oke with his hair on end,
trembling in every limb, and cold drops of pers
piration bedewing his forehead—awoke to find
himself comfortably in bed, his carpetbag lying
near him, and the morning sun beaming through
his curtain. What a difference! He sprang from
his bed, dressed himself, and as it was yet early,
sought an appetite for breakfast by a morning
walk. .He went accordingly into the street, and
strolled along. The farther he went, the stronger
became the confused recollectidn of the objects
that presented themselves to his view.
"It is very strange," said he to himself; "I have
never been in this place before, and I could swear
that I've seen this house, and the next; and that
other on the left." .
On he went; till he came to a corner of astreet
crossing the one down which he had come. Be
fore long he arrived at the Church with the arch
itectural features that had attracted his notice in
the dream; and then the highroad. ninngiwhirh

he had pursued his way, coming at length to the
same by-path that had presented to his imagina
tion a few hours before—there was no possibility
of doubt or mistake. Every tree and 'every 'turn
was fazniliar to him: He hurried forward, no
longer 'doubting that the next, moment would
bring him to the cottage; and this was really the
case. In all its exterior appearances it corres
ponded with what he had seen in his dreams.—
Who, then, could minder that he determined to
ascertain whether the coincidence! would: hold
good in everypoint He entered the garden and
went directly to the 'spot where he had seen the
well ; but here the resemblance failed ; there was
none. He looked in every direction, examined
the whole garden, and oven went round-the cot
tage, which seemed to be inhabited, but nowhere
could he find any signs of a well. He then has
tened back to the inn in a state of excitement
hard to describe. 'He could not make up his
mind to allow such extraordinary coincidence to
pass unnoticed. But how was he toobtain a clue
to the awful mystery? He went to the landlord,
and asked him directly to whom the cottage be
longed that was on the by-road near to him.
" I wonder, sir," said he, "what causes you to
take such particuar notice of that wretched little
hovel? It is inhabited by an old man and hie
wife who have the character of being very unso
cial. They scarcely ever - leave the house, see no-.
body, and nobody goes to see them. - 0f late their
very existence appears to have been forgotten,
and I believe you are the first, who, for years,
has turned your steps to the lonely spot."
These details, instead of satisfying his curiosi t
ty, only aroused it the more. Breakfast was ser
ved, but he could eat none ; and he felt that if he
presented himself to the merchants in. such a state
of excitement they might think him mad. He
walked up and down the room and looked out of
the window, endeavoring to interest himself in a
quarrel between - five men in the street; but the
garden and cottage pre-occupied his mind, and,
at lad snatching up his hat, he made his way to
the street. Hastening to the nearest magistrate,
he related the whole circumstance briefly and
" It is very strange," said the officer, " and af
ter what has happenedi don't think it would be
right to leave the matter without further investi-.
gation. I will place two'-of the police at your
command; you can then go onee-inore to the hov
el and search every part of it. Yon may, per
haps, make some important discovery."
He allowed but very few minutes to elapse be
fore he was on his way, accompanied by two offi
cers. After knocking at the door, and awaiting
for some time, the old man opened the door. He
received them somewhat uncivilly, but showed no
mark of suspicion when they told him they wish
ed to search the house.
" Very well, as fast and as soon as you please,"
was the reply.
" Have you a well here ?"
"'No, sir, we are obliged to get our water from
a spring a quarter of smile distant"_
They searched the house, but discovered noth
ing of any consequence. Meanwhile the old man
gazed upon them with an impenetrable vacancy
of look, as if he could not understand why they
were intruding on his property. Finally, they
tbrsook•the cottage, without finding anything to
corroberate their suspicions. They, however,
resolved to inspect 'the garden. By this time a
number of persons had collected together outside,
having been drawn to the spot by the sight of a
stranger with two policeman. They were asked
if they knew anything of a well in those parts.
They replied they did, not; the idea seemed to
perplex them. At length an old- woman came
forward leaning on a crutch.
"A. well ?" said she. "Is it a well you 'are
looking for? That has. been gone these thirty
years. I remember it as it were yesterday : how
I used to throw stones into it, just to hear the
splash in the water."
"Do you remember where that well used to
be ro aksed the gentleman.
"As near as I can recollect," replied the wo
man, " it is on the very spot where you now stand.",
He suddenly started as if he had troddenupon
.0 serpent. They at once commenced digging up
the grqund. At about twenty inches deep, they
came to a layer of bricks, which being broken up,
revealed some rotten boards. These were easily
removed, when they beheld the dark mouth of
the well. ;
"1 was'quite certain that was the spot," mid
the old woman. " What a foul you were to stop
it up, and-then hav'e to travel so far for water !"
A sounding line, turnishedwith hooks was now
let dOwn into the well—the crowd 'hard pressing
around them, breathlessly bending over the black
and fetid hole, the secrets of whichseemed ,bid
den in impenetrable obscurity. This was repea
ed several times without any result. At length,
penetrating below the mud, the hooks caught
something of considerable weight; ,and after
muchlime and effort they succeeded in raising it
from the obscure lole. It was an' old chest.—
The sides and lid were decayed andit needed no
locksmith to open it. Within it they found, what
they were sure they would find, and which filled
the spectators with horror—the remains of a hu
man body! ,
The police officers no}r rushed into the house
and secured the old Man! Asia his wife, she at
first could not be found. But after a fatiguing
search, she was discovered beneath a pileof wood,
being much bruised by the heavy logs above her.
By this time neatly the whole population of the
town had colleCted around the spot.
The old cOple were brought before the proper
authorities find separately examined. The man
persistedin his denial most obstinately ; but his
wife atance confessed that she and her husband,
a very long time ago, had murdered a peddler
who poSsessed a large sum of money. He had
passed the night at their house ; and they, taking
advantage of the heavy sleep that encompassed
him, had strangled him, after which they placed
his body in a chest. The chest was then thrown
into the well, and the well stopped up. The two
criminals had reason to believe themselves free
from detection, as there were no witnesses of the
crime, and its trace had been carefully concealed.
Nevertheless they had not been able to hush the
voice of conscience. They fled from their fellow
men. They were intimidated at the_slightest
noise, and silence thrilled them withlear. They
had often thought of flying to some distant land;
but some inexplicable influence kept them near
the remains of their victim. Terrified by the de
position of his wife, the old man at length made a
similar confession; and six weeks after the-guilty
couple expired on the scaffold.
TREATMENT OF TORIES IN THE REV:
. The following summary, compiled from the
statute of the several States, of penalties inflicted
upon petsone who had taken up arms on the side
of the enemy, or in any way rendered aid and

New Hampshire pailsed an act in 1777, declar
ing all persons resident within the State, who
either levied war, or aided the enemy in carrying
on war, against the United States to be guilty of
treason, and forfeiting their goods and chattels to
the use of the State.
In Connecticut it was made treason, punishable
with death, to aid or comfort the enemy.
Massachusetts, in 1777, declared all persons
abiding within that State, and deriving protection
from its laws, to owe allegiance to it, and that all
such persons, if guilty of levying war, or conspi

should suffer the pains of death. It further en
acted, that any concealment of treason should
forfeit all their goods and chattels of the State
during his life.
In Rhode Island, death and the entire confisca
tion of property were the penalties of adhesion to
the royal cause. -
Pennsylvania, early in 1777, enacted that all
enemies resident within the State, or those-who
should aid or assist the public enerni, should be
held-guilty o f high treason, and suffer death.
Thew estates were, by the same act, declared for
feited to the Commonwealth.
Neit York passed laws authorizing her Gover
nor "to remove certain disaffected and dangerous
persons from the limits of the State; alto, an act
to remove "neutral persons" to the eneihy's lines,
upon their refusal to take the oath of allegiance.
Also, in 1779, an act for the forfeiture and sale
of the property. Also an act for the banishment
of all tories. $-
--New Jersey, in 1776, passed "an act hi punish
traitors and disaffected persons," by death or im
prisonment, according to the nature of the Offence,
and forfeiting their property to the State.
Maryland passed, in 1777, "an act 4.0 punish
certain crimes, and,to prevent the growth of to
ryism," which enacted that all persons
have adhered to the enemy shall be adjudged gull"

and confiscation to all such persons as aided the
Georgia, in 1778, forfeited and confiscated - the
estates of a multitude of persons who had been
guilty of incivism.
South Carolina, the modern hot-bed of seces
sion, passed, early in 1776, -" An Act to prevent
sedition, and punish insurgents and cristarbers of
the public peace," in which capital punishment
was denounced against all taking up arms, or aid
ing or abetting the foreign enemy. It is also de
clared that all land and tenements, goods and chat
tels of such persona, should be sold within one
month, and the proceeds deposited in the Colony
Treasury at Charleston: .
Such is the record of the legislation of the "old
thirteen" against traitors and domestic enemies.
It is a consistent, though severe testimony, to the
necessities which every civil war has imposed up
on a Government.
A MORNING AT THE ITRIONITER'S.
A short time ago it chanced to us to see ayoung
couple shopping. It was perfectly evident that
they wore raw at the business. The lady wore
orange blossoms, and had that indefinably inter
esting look peculiar to brides, while any one might
have known that the gentleman was a newly
wedded man, from the manner in whichhe handed
his lady about andperformed those numerous lit
tle offices of gallantry which so pleasantly* keep
up the delusion of courtship dung the honey
moon.' They were baying Juniiture at one of
those general outfitting establishments. wherellfr:
Tciodles was in the habitof supplying himself with
things that might come handy in a life-time.—
The bridegroom was an attache of some public
office or counting room, at perhaps a thousand a
year, and the bride a seamstress. They had laid'
up some money, and, having taken a house six feet
square, with a door like the entrance to a mouse,.
trap, were proceeding to furnish it with what lit
tle remained. They had already selected half a
dozen large Brussels carpets, mahogany chairs
enough to furnish Platt's Hall on an oratorio
night, window cornices and curtains of satin and
lace, one of which waslarge enough to cover up
their little dwelling. A book-base and cabinet,
and a bureau with psyche and all complete, ei
ther of which was as big as the house in question,
had been checked off to them at a bargain ; and
in the corner of the warehouse whgre specimens
of fine cabinet-work were gathered, both had
come to a dead halt over- an article.which neith
er could look at without blushing, and of the na
ture of which both professed entire ignorance.—
It was a choice piece of Worknsansnip, with all
