CALEB AND 3 lATI LOA.
A. TALE OF"rlf E REVOLUTWN. I
A. 1):) lit twenty miles from the lwalitilid
village Mid Gotham, there dwelt in the time
of the American war, Henry M— mul
Horatio 11 , two poweriid riv a l s . 1 l en _

nu•rica; Horatio, to if - is: L .OM the monarchy
of ( ; reat Britain. Henty hod a sou named. ,
Caleb, who commanded a company ofabout
one hundred nvm, and with his parent was
en g aged in the irrVat cause of the revolution;
Johu under the direction (it-b 4 nther, Ho
ratio, was striving to quell the rising spirit
of liberty that was breaking forth in Ameri
ca. Aianv were the murders and deeds or
horror, that were committed in those days;
the peacoatl inhabitant that. would lie down,
with pleasant prospects bethre him, would
rise no more. The trusty rifle was placed
by the bed side, and the report of it was of
ten heard at the still hour of midnight, and
these were etiiphatically styled the times
that tried the patriot's soul.
Yet amid all this struggle, there was one
little spot where contentment reigned: whore
a•• opt. ~....,,,.., efrovo air away the noise anti
turmoil of war it was the cottage of Glen
warsing, situatedin a grove of poplars. Its
inmates Were an old lady and her daughter:
the husband and parent were slain during
the French war, at the bloody battle ollbrt
Du Quesne, ufult.r the unfortunate Gen.
Braddock; and where the cool intrepidity of
Washiagton first showed itself; the old lady
had passed the meridian or life; but the
daughte, the first rose of May, was just ex
pending:" Matilda, though not remarkably
handsome, was a girl of sweet disposition
and engaging manners; a spell lung round
her, which never !Idled to excite the admi
ration and secure the .esteem of all who
knew her, and something_ of its magic hi-
Iluence was connected with every thing she
said or did. The landscape from the cot
tage was sublime and beautiful—the tower
ing hills that rose on east and West, no eye
could behold w uncut admiration: to the north
and south extended -a pleasant vale; a •pur
ling brook rose by the door and bent its
Course di rough the meadows I iii it shotaway
and terminated in a beautiful lake, that lay
..before the eye a pure unbroken-mirror.
Caleb and - John had been school boyS to- .
_get) iersaud...h.otb had Maile chums to- the
hand of Matilda A—, but a decided pre
11m.ence had always been given t 6 Caleb,
and they had only waited for the report of
"successfhl or unsuccessfid war to - be heard
no inure," for the - consummation of their:
wishes. • Lovers arc always hasty: by the
protracted length of the war, aided by the
entreaty of friends, the wedding day was at
last alipointed: this was what John had long
wished lbr, that he might the inure liOnorti
bly acconiplish his resolution under th11.4-arb
of way: them was theiurking spirit of a vil
lain within his breast, fbr he hatriletermin
ed that Caleb and Matilda should never be
married, and only waited an opportunityto
put his wicked determination into executioni
that opportunity presented itself: the morn
ing previous to the one appointed for mar
riage, Caleb and his men were called away
on 'an expedition against their enemies, that
occupied the day, At the foot of the hill,
Caleb dismissed his company, with the or
der to collect at the sound of his horn;_ he
then walked slowly toward the sunirnii:—
Ile stopped tesurvey the landscape tlfatAvas
yet tinged ‘fith the rays of the setting sun,
and pleasant ideas were mingled_ with the
prospect, that when the earth should. again'
be enlivened_with,the. bright majesty of
day, - he shyuld be united to all that would
render lifeqsweet. With such thoughts %vas
I]is mind occupied when he arrived at 'the
4ummit of the hill; but instead of the once
cnlively' cottage, he could discover nought
tit ruins ) and the smoke that yet ascended
un it Wiii,3-borne along by the sourthern
breeze, and 'base higher and higher, fig/ it
nlingled with . the blite 'mists of ,evening. At
the house of the nearest neighbor: he found

to pursu:! - the Vittory, and returned to the

grave—the bloody sword was buried by the
side of her coffin, and when the people re
turned to their homes he ling,ered,behind.
He would wander to the grave day after

love of Alatilda. Grief like his could not
last long, and Ihe last painful ,tribute was
paid, by conducting him to the Silent grave.

that an ark or raft, in attempting to get

THE VINE.—It is mentioned as a filet
worthy the notice of those engaged, or about
to become so, in the cultivation of the vine,

A SINGULAR ADVENTURE.
Once upon a time a traveller stept into a
post-coach. Ile was a young man just start
ing in life. He found six passengers about
him, all of them grey-headed and extreme.
ly aged men. - The youngest appeared to
have seen at least eighty winters. Our
young traveller was struck with the singly
rarity, mild and happy aspect Which distin
guished all his fellow-passengers, and deter
mined to ascertain the secret of a long life,
and the art of making okl age comfortable.
He addressed the one who was apparently
the oldest, who told him that ho had always
led a regular and abstemious life, eating veg
etables and drinking water. The young
man was rather daunted at thig, inasmuch
as he liked the good things of this life. E-le
. seCond, who astounded him
by saying he-had always eat roast beef and
gone to bed, regularly' fuddled for seventy
years, adding, that -all depends on rcgri
larly. The third had prolonged his days
by never seeking or accepting ot)ice—the
imrth by resolutely abstaining from all po- ,
litical or -religious controversies, and the
fifth by getting to bed at sunset and rising
at- dawn. The sixth was apparently much
younger tlitiU the, other five—his hair was
less grey, and there was more of it—a pla
cid smile, denoting perfectly easy con
science mantled his fiice, and his voice was
jocund and strong. They were all surprised
to learn that he was by ten years the oldest
man in the coach. "How exclaimed our
young. traveller, "how is it you have thus
'preserved the freshness of life ;"—"lt is no
great mystery," said the old man "I have
drank water and drank wine—l have eat
meat and vegetables—l have. held a public
spice --I have dabbled in politics and writ
ten'religious pamphlets-- 7 I have sometimes
went to bed 'aerwidnight r got up at sunrise
