Death, iu one of his excursions for game,
discovered that at a small farm Innate,
some three miles or so distant front the
fort, there lived a certain Mite Hester
Stanhope, whose beauty and atuiable

And to render himself still more certain
of the fact, , he called the , day following,

lower than where he had intended to

Inne4 sat reading' alone iu Ilk
private apartment, when an orderly
entered and informed him that one of
the men wished to see him.
"Send him in," said the Colonel ;
and at the next minute our friend,
Death, had entered and made his

Hector Campbell was a brave but
very hen►i strong young Seotchruan,
who had occupied the post of lieutenant
at the fort. In a sudden freak of dar.

ahOut an hour after his coneenlation
with Colonel Inner he appronehed the
deserted post, at the head of the dozen
riflemen, who had been temporarily
placed under his orders; " I will tell
you what we are going to do. The
long and short of the' affair is simply
this, it's a gang of them cussed, thievin'
Iroquois, that have circumvented and
carried off our four men—shouting them
with their arrows, and then decamp

I did sot say a word to hint about what

possible the 'rides' should have all -the
honor of exterminating the varlets.

Every man cheerfully answered i n
the attirmative, and with quickened
pulses, and sanguine hopea, the little
company again moved forward.
The past consisted of a long, narrow
space, bounded on each side by a rocky,
shelving hank ; while its extreme end
was closed in by the dark impenetrable
looking forest. The bank on each side
of the pass was thickly covered with
brush and underweeel, and among these
Death now carefully concealed his nevi;
taking care to arrange them so that
their tire would cross each other, and
bidding thorn not to tiro until he had
given, the signal, and after they had
tired, not to stop to re-load, but, club
bing their rifles, to jump down and
finish the straggle in that manner.

worn previous to their arrival.
The little company had began to
grow impatient, and Death, himself,
to fear that the Indians had either rued
of making the attetnpt, or else changed
their plau of attack, when suddenly
bis luick eve detected the forni of one
of crafty foes issne in a ertmehing

the lofty trees threw far up the pass. •

the wood, and with qniek eat like
stealthiness of movomout, tidvanoad up

The remaining four Indians had been
likewise dispatched ; and the victorious
riflemen (none of whom received any
wound worth mentioning,) sow sent
up such a shout of triumph for their
victory, that the Maass of the old
wood rung with it for minatm after.

and applied for an agency. He proposed
to take a large quantity of books to his

where he represented that he could
soon sell theta, as he was assured by
the " invisible-I." The enterprising
bookseller was of course deii , hted with
this prospect of a Sale; but his utitlin

that he hail no money, and wanted the

The bookseller remarked that the
Tuckers were good if the medium was

he would prefer to keep the books.—

bookseller as an impostor, telling him
that he did nut believe his own doctrines,
and that the spirit would expose his
duplicity to the world. Of this he felt

and find money less tight.

tion. The amendments are four in nant,
ber, and the vote will be taken for or
against each ono separately. - . •
' The First Amendment relates to the
public, debt, and proposes the following
salutary provisions :
i. That the State Debt shall ncverex
coed 8750,000, except in cast's of war,
invasion, or insurrection, or forfie pur
pose of redeeming the present debt.
• it. A Sinking Fund shall be provid

existing State debt, and to reduce the
principad 5250,000 a year.
in. The credit of the Commonwealth
shall not in any manner be pledged or
loaned to any individaal'or corporation,
nor shall the 'Commonwealth become a
stockholder in any corporation.
The; Commonwealth shall not as
sumo the dent of any county, city; bo
roegh, or township, or of any corpora
tion, unless the same was contracted to
aid the State in time of war.
V. No county, city, or other motile
pal corporation shall become a stoek
holder in, or loan its credit to any com
pany or corporation whatever.
The Second Amendment 'provides a,
gainst the needless division of counties,
by prohibiting the erection ot'any new
county containing less than 404). square
miles, and requiring the express assent
of the voters of a county, to authorize
any division of such county which that' .

The Third Amendment relates priucii
pally to Philadelphin, and 'proposes to
amend the first Article of the Coustitu
lion, by striking front its sevetal se-c
-tions the words which recognize the
separate municipal existence of the
city of Philadelphia.
This amendment also proposes some
changes in the mode of apportioning the
State for Representatives; the most im
portant of which is that it will allovithe
city of Philadelphia—and any city with
taxable population sufficient for two
Representatives—to be divided into sin
gle Representative Districts.
The Fourth Amendment proposes a
new section to the Constitution, in which
the power of the Legislature to alter,re
yoke or repeal any charter of incorpo
ration, (which ofcourso it possesses, by
virtue of its sovereignty, although some
affect to dispute it) is expressly declared.
Know Nothing Legislation.
The Know Nothings when in a 'Argo
majority in our State Legislature two ;
yours since, passed a law that no devise
or bequest made by a tesktor to a relig
ious, charitable or benirolent institu
tion, should be valid, unless the last•
will and testament containing such de
vise or bequest had been made and exe
cuted at least thirty days before the
death of the testator. The charge had
been made that Roman Catholic Priests
snrroanded the death beds of the mein- /
hers of their church, and extorted from/.
the dying, legacies for their ehurelds
and other religious institutions. Of,
course the law was general, bqt the
Know Nothings put it on the, statute
book to meet the cases of the Catholic
Church. Strange enough, the first place
this law takes effect is in the case of a
benevolent Protestant institution of
learning-West toeZeitehoster n
