In the earfY part of the French Revo lution, the prisons of Lyons were filled with thousands of unhappy .victims. 4Oventy-two prisoners who were con demned were thrown into the Cave of Death on the ninth of December, (here to wait 'the execution of their sentence. This could not be the next day, because it was the Decadi. • • One aailinsofieTs. Dy Banal, only twenty-two years of age, of a bold and ardent spirit, profited by thisintirval to devise a plan of escape. His sisters having, by means pf a very large bribe, obtained accers to this abade of horror, began to weep around him. "It as not now a time to weep,"' said he; "it is the moment to arm ourselves with resointion and activity, and en• deavor to find some way by which we can elude our menaced fate Bring me files, a chisel, a turnscrew, and other instruments;' bring wine in abundance; bring a poniard, that, if reduced to ex tremity,- we may not perish without the means of defence. By this . grate, which looks into• the Rue Lafond, you can give me' these things; I will be in waiting there the whole day to receive them." The sisters retired, and in the course of the day, at different visits, brought a variety of tools, twelve fowls, 'and about sixty bottles of wine. Porral communicated his project to four others, bold and active like himself, and the whole business was arranged to his complete satisfaction. The evening arrived; a general sap per was proposed; the last, they 'thought, .they should ever eat. The ,prisoners supped well, and exhorted each other to meet their fate the next morning with heroism and fortitude.- At eleven o'clock 'the associates began their labors; one of them as placed as a sentinel nest the door of the olive, armed with a poniard, ready to dis patch the turnkey, if at his visit at two o'clock in the morning he should ap pear to suspect anything; the others, • pulling off their coats, began to make their researches. At the extremety of the second cave they found a huge door, and on this they began their operations. It was of oak, and double-barred; by degrees the hinges gave way to the file, and the door was no longer . held by them; but still they could not force it' open—it was held by something on the other side. A hole was mode in it with a chisel, and, looking through, - they per ceived it was tied by a very' strong rope to a post at a distance. This .was a terrible moment! They endeavored in vain to cat the rope with the chisel of file, but they , Could not reach it. A piece of wax candle, how ever, was procured; and being lighted, • and tied to the endlf a stick. they thrust it through, the 'hole in the door, and burnt the chord minder. The door was then opened, and the adven turers proceeded - forward. This • door they found led only Co another vault, which served as a depot for confiscated effects and merchandise. Among other things was a large trunk fall of shirts. They profitead by this discovery to make 'an .exchange of linen; and instead of the clean ones which they took, they left their own, which they bad worn for many weeks. Two doors beside that -at which they had entered now , offered themselves to ' their choice. They began to attack one; but they had scarcely applied the file, when they were alarmed by the barking of a dog behind. A general - consternation seized the party; the work vas stopped in an in stant; perhaps the door led into. the apartments of the jailor. This idea re called to their minds that it afar new near on to two o'clock, the time of his visit. One of ihe party returned to. a===i ward thibave of Death, to see whether all was safe;?a6d _it was agreed to sus pend their rebore till his return. When thtpl scout returned, he said that on his arrival at the Cave of Death he shuddered with hOrror to find the turnkey there already. The man, how ever, who had been left as a sentinel, had engaged him to drink with him; and the scout joining the party, they plied him so well. that he at last reeled off without examining the cave much, and was in all probabilities laid fast asleep for the rest of the 'night. This was very consolatory news. I Quitting the door at which they bad heard the dog bark, they applied them selvesto the other. They found here folding-doors, one of which they opin ed, and found themselves in a long, dark passage.. At the (end they per ceived still another doot; bui,liatening very intently, they heard the sound of voices; it in fact led to the gnard-bouse, where seleral soldiers in their national uniform were assembled. This was, indeed, a terrible stroke.\ Had they then gone so far, only to meet with a worse obstacle than onyi they had yet encountered? Must. all their labors prove. then, at length fruitless? , Only one resource now remained, and this' was a door which they had passed on the side of the passage, and which they conceived must lead to the great court of the Hotel de Ville. In fact, having forced the door, ii appeared they were not mistaken; .the they were at the bottom of a staircase which leil into the - court. It, was now half-past four o'clock; the morning was dark and cold, while'_ rain and snow were falling in abundance. The asso ciates embraced each other "with tran sport, and were preparing to mount the staircase, when Porral-cried oat s "What are - you about? If we at tempt to go out at present, ail _is over with ne. The gate is now Ahni, and, if any one should be perceived_ in the court, the alarm would instantly be given, and all would be discovered. After having had the 'courage to pene trate •thus far, let usi have resolution still to wait a while. At eight o'clock the gate will be opened. and the pas sage • through the court free. .We can then steal out by degrees, and ming-, `Hug with the numbers w e can go away without being perceived. ,It is not fill ten o'clock the prisoners are summoned to execution; between eight - an.ll ton there will lie time enough for all of ris to get ~- a way. We will return to •the cave; and when the time of departure arrives, each of us five: will inform two others of the means of escape offered. We shall then be fifteen, and going owl three at a time we shall pass nnob. served. Let the last three, as they sei succession we may " cape." This plan appeared judicious and I safe; it was unanimously agreed to, and 'the associates returning to the cave, made choice of those who should first be informed of what they bud done. ' Montellier, a notary, and Baron de Chaffoy, to whom the means of escape were .offered,t refused to avail them selves of them, - the former from a con fide4Ce of a pardon, as he had been mistakki for his brother; and the lat ter, though in the flower of his age, declared all y his ties in the world were broken, and that life bad nothing now to offer which could make him desk ions of prolonging it. - They were both guillotined the next mowing. • The fate of the fifteen who fled was very dissimilar, and the escape of the rest was prevented ,by the imprudence of one - or them. The last of the fif teen, who, on quitting the cave, was, according to the plan arranged, priv ately to apprise fifteen others, instead of doing so, cried aloud,— "The paisige is open; let every one that can escape." ,: This excited a -great movement among- the prisoners. They arose in "an instant, doubting whether what they heard could be true, or whether he who uttered these worde was not mad. The noise they made lammed the sen tinel without; he called to the turnkey; they hastened immediately to the cave, perceived what had been done, and closing up the door .by which the 'pris oners had escaped, placed a strong guard before it. Nesple, who had ex cited this movement, was, With three others, taken and executed. Another of the fugitives took refuge in the house of a friend, in 'an obscure street; but he was discovered, brought back, and guillotined. . It was not thus with Penal, the orig inal author of the plan. He was the first that came forth. from the cave. kite passed the sentinel in the court, he said,— "My good friend, it r ai nsas and snows very bard; were I in yoniplace I would not remain out of doors such weather, but would go to the fire in the guard room." - • The sentinel thanked him, and, fo lowing his advice, the , coast was left more clear for the prisoners. Penal took - refuge in the house of one whO was considered a good patriot, and escaped the observation of a party of commissioners who entered the house. As soon as they were gone, he began to think of making his way out of the city as fast as possible.., When he ar rived at the Place Belle-Cour be found parties of the gendarmery dispeised everywhere. Perrot went into a house, and, making known who he was, en treated an asylum., The inhabitants were ' Women,', timid to excess; but the desire of saviog . fin 'innocent person rendered them cour ageous. They condieied him into a glirref s and concealed him behind some planks standing up in a corner. The gendarmes arrived; they Beached the house; they came into the garret where Portal was concealed. Here they found a large melt. the top of which was fastened down by a padlock. They asked for, the key; the women' went down-stairs for While they were gone, one of the gendarmes leaned against thp planka i while a Impend " 'Twould be droll enough if we were r to 'find one of the fugitives ins ibis cask." , "More likely plate or money," says a third, "for it seems very heavy.", The key at length arrived; the `cask was unlocked, and was found to `lie hill , . of salt. The gendarmes - -swore •et the `disappointment, visited the roof a the Londe, and then , ..., retired In the eve ning Portal, dre ssed in woman's clothes, with irbasket on his head end' another on: his arm, Vassed the bridge of La Gi illotiere. and quitted the city. Ipabriel, another of the 'fugitives, concealed himself among the bushes in the marshes of the Travaux Perraohe, Where he was nearly frozen to jeatb, butt he got away, to a place of safety. One, young. Conchouz, who was of the five that bad opened the way for escape, made choice of his father. who was nearly eighty years of age. as one ofithe fifteen; but the poor old man's leis were swellen, and he 'Was scarcely able to walk; "Fly , fly , my son!" said he; "if thou bast the opportunity, ' fly this instant! I commend Hits an act of duty, but it is impossible that I should fly with thee. I have 'Wed lung enongh—my troubles will soon be finished; and death will be deprived of its sting. if I can know that thou art in safety." His son assured shim that ho would not quit the prison without him, and that his persisting in his refusal would only end in the destruction of both. The father, overcome by his, dutiful affection, yielded; and, supporteti by his son, made his way,to the bottom of the staircase,l but to ascend it was out of his power; he , could just drag his legs slow the ground, but to lift them up was impossible.. His son, though low in stature and not stiong, todit him up in his arms; the desire of saving his father gave him renewed strength,.and he carried him to the top of the stairr. His filial piety was rewarded, and both father and son escaped. • ' Curious Antipathies. It is well known that the vanity of King James 1,-never overcame his weak ness of being unable to look on a nak ed sword. ' Sir Xer.elm Digby was pinud to relate that when he was knight ed at Hinchinbrooke, near Huntingdon, the king turned his face away and neq ly wounded him. This may be accoutit fed for, as his mother, Miry, Queen i3f Scots, a short time before his birth, had a great shock given to heron seeing her favorite, David . Muir), 'killed in her: presence.

The mayor followed, to the'amusement of 'the po pulace; and this curious race wasnfter ward known as the 'Mayor and Mr. Pennantls Tour. Through Chester."

Here is fi casco' a lady basingan aver sion to-the opposite sex; it appeared in the obituary of a newspaper-some fifty years ago: 'Lately, at Gray's alms house, Taunton, aged eighty-two, Han nah Mitten, a maiden-lady.

Theie are many cases sim ilar to this - lady's on record, although they are manifested in a more imperfect way. In Hone'e 'Table Book' we find an account of a gentleman in Alcantara, named John Roll, who would swoon on hearing the word lana (wool], although his *oak was made of the same material. Again; in the Universal Magazine we read of a young woman in Namur who fainted whenever she heard a bell ring. The medical pioneer, Hippocxates, mentions one Nicatio who swooned whenever, he heard a flute.

" The Duke xl'Epernon fainted on beholding a leveret, though a hare bad no effect on him.- Tycho Bmhe, the superStitious astronomer, was similarly affected upon seeing a fox, and Marshal d'Albert at the eight of a pig.

The credulous Dr. Mather records an account of a young lady_ who fainted if any person cut his nails with a knife in her presence; bat if done with scis sors, she was indifferent. Boyle, the philosopher, himself tells us that he never conqUered bk! uneasiness. at the sound, of water running and splashing through a pipe, and that he sometimes even fainted. We .i►re told of .French people particularly, partial to the odor of jonquils or tube roses, 1 . who, will swoon at the smell of ordinary roses.

An Old Blockade Runner. EXPERLEN,CE OF A"CHARLESTON.SKIFPER Captain Henry Prince is the owner and mastr of the schooner Etiwan, of Charlestr, S. C. His vessel reached this:portu few . days ago with a cargo of 150.000. - fiet of hard pine, and while the 'longshoremen were unloading her, the captain .entertained a half dozen inter ested listeners with his ' story of block ronpinefor two years in Charles ton harbor. , j , 'rl am now sixty-seven years of age," nadefbeen'ti satiating - nuts luaus/ all that length of service was never shipwrecked but once, and that was on the' coast of Ireland, in the ship Vul can, Captain Daniel Bunker, of New York.. Th e ship was homeward-bound, loaded with iron from Stockholm, but havinespruna4l leak she bore up to wards Liverpool in distress, and in do ing so was misled by, a bright light on shore, which she mistook for a light house. It was subsequently ascertained that the light was made by the burning of tar by a vessel in distress and that five vessels were wrecked that night in conseqUence of making the same mis take as the Vulcan. Every seaman on board of the Vulcan - was saved, but with the exception of a lad all on board of the four other vessels that were wrecked were lost. 'For forty-seven years I have been a resident of Charleston and during the greater part of that time I have held a controlling interest'in one or more ves sels. While , the war lasted I was sole owner of the schoonei Santee and bad an interest jin half a dozen blockade runners; but it is of the Santee that I particular), want to speak: For two years I landed with that schooner from thirty to fifty tons of sand at Fort Sumter every other night, ,and during that period of blockade running I am quite certain that one thousand shots and shells were fired at ,my vessel by the monitors, gunboatS and barges in the haxbor,. ? but with the exception of a long twenty-two-incher fired from Bat tery Wagner, three miles distant, - the Santee. - vas never struck; 'The last night I rick the blockade thirty-two shots anti shells wire fired at me, and owing to the close proximity with which they whizzed about my ears I refused to run the blockado ( any more and for that refusal I was arrested by Mott Pendle, Provost Marshal of Charleston, and ordered to the front in - Lee's - arM - y+ I refused . to go and ap pealed to Ccrmmodore Tucker, com mander of The Confederate fl eet.at Charleaten, and when I made the fact known to him that my vessel absolute ly floated past, the Union gunboats on .I account of the dead calm that prevailed and because of the perfection of the Yankee system of throwing calcium lights a great distance, - blockade run ning in : a sailing vessel under a dead calm was , not advisable, but that I would be onepf a "dezen to volunteer to run a steamboat, provided the gov ! erntaent would furnish the boat.

The night that Charleston was evacuated the Confederate commander issued or ders that all 'vessels, of every' descrip tion, should be' burned to prevent their falling into the - hands, of the Union forces.. When the squad 'came , on board of the Santee for that purpose I Met them on deck and, told them I knew they had a duty to perfOrm, that 11111 they were ;Ming under order, but be fore they fired • her I wanted thein to walk down in the cabin and got a good cup of coffee.

While they 'were doing th t I was getting in . some big talk for th Santee and upon giving them my i word of - honor that my vessel . ahould never pass, from my possession to that of the Yankees, they concluded that after breaking bread with _me they could not turn and rend me; . and while that lunch oast me five dollars it saved my vessel • 'The next day a squad of Yankees came on board of the Santee and the officer in commend took my telescope, quadrant -and other valuable things I had on the-vessel.

One of my best boys told where my cotton was secreted, but the black rascal never got the value of a pound of cotton for giving that knowledge. • tried hard to get my cotton back, but Provost Marshal Pratt told me to . take the Bible in my hand • and - in the .presence of Almighty God solemnly swear that .I had never voluntarily borne arms against the United Statel; that I had never given aid or encour agement to the Confederate forces; that I bad never rejoiced at defeats of the Union armies or at the victories of the.

It is wonderful what a quantity of cotton Would stick to a Yankee Provost Marshal's open hands if right' well tarred. 'lt has to.ways been said that General Sherman's , troops burned immense quantities of cotton, supplies, etc., on hie march through Georgia -to Charleston doubtless he did destroy much valuable property, but so far as Charleston and-its vicinity is .concern ed I can attest that about all the burn ing was done by the Confederates just as they were leaving. The view enter tained by the Confederate Government was that it was better to destroy mov able property than to have it fall , into the hands of the Yankee Government, and if the truth was known most of the destruction by' fire attributed to Gen eral Sherman's army was caused by the action of the Confederates.'

When brought to trial, she ltvowed her guilt with many tears and sobs, alleging that, unable to purchase her 'wedding dress, and being ashamed to confess her pev erty to her future husband, she had. purloined his watch with the object of realizing a sufficient amount by its by to equip herself decently. It is pleasant to know that this- piteena confession was responded , to in a gallant and magnanimous spirit . by the a , _ de poiled - bridegroom; who declared that. - 'the prisoner was and ever wouldle his only love, and that ho would many her out of land if the judge would consent to set her at liberty.' 'Without walk'. rate's delays, the tribunal annulled the arraignment; and the generous lover carried off his' liberated larcenist - in triumph.
