From the Springfield Republican
Most lovely of all American seaboard
towns is Newport, in Rhode Island. Na
ture has bestowed, upon it a delicious elf
mate, enchan - ting scenery, and a bay and.
harbor uniting the best anchorage with
the chrystalline azure of the Mediterra
nean. Wealth and refinement have
adorned it with princely man,iens, and
cottages that a poet might covet, while
its society is beyond all question the most
cultivated and elegant in the United
States But fifty years ago, the date of
our story, the place was only, a half-for
gotten scaport,"living in the memories of
those earlier days when its commerce far
exceeded that of New York; when hun
dred of wealthy Hebrews made it the
Venice of the new world, and sent their
teeming argosies to South America and
into the Indian seas. The British occu
pation during the Revolutionary War,
struck a death blow at the prosperity of
Newport. The rich mere: - ant Jews gath
ered together their gold brilliants, closed
their warehouses and sailed with their
ships to other shores. Their costly syna
gogue was shut up, not to this day re
opened for service, although kept in con
stant and perfect repair by the bequest of
old Abraham Touro. Other families
were impoverished; trade deserted the
place for its younger rivals; the lonely
wharves decayed piece-meal and dropped
into the brine, and so complete was the
stagnant, calm which brooded over the
scene that it seemed wrapped in the sleep
of a hundred years, like that of the prin
cess in Tennyson's "Day Dream." But
at last, under the guise of fashion, came
the awakener:
"A touch a RI a, the charm MIS snapped."
and the sleeping beauty arose to a love
lier life than she had ever shone in before.
"What do you mean, sir ?" said Miss
Martha Hayes, sweet and twenty,' em
phasizing the do with a slight stamp and
a tons of her pretty bead; "what do you
mean; Mr. Bright, by daring to insinuate
that I am not mistress of my own fancy,
and that because it happens to be a time
of war, I am not still to cherish a kind
regard for old friends ? That one of them
is a British officer is surely his misfor
tune and not his fault. My friendships
are not in your keeping."
"I mean, Miss Ha es, (emphasizing
the Miss) precisely what I say, that if
you prefer a British officer, an enemy to
your country, because of his wealth and
high rank, to one who has loved you so
long as I have, you can bestow your band
upon him; but if so, we may as well come
to an understanding at once."
og Miss Hayes, sir 7" replied the irate
beauty, tearing her fan open with despe
rate vigor, and proceeding to use the in.
strument violently, "you are growing for
mal indeed. It always used to be Mar
tha." •
Tee and it always used to be' Charles."
" Weil; sir, if you oannotoearry on a
conversation without assuming 'airs and
styling rim Miss Hayes, you may consider
such amiss as good as a mile, according
to.the adage." •
I shall be more than a mile
to-morrow, Martha, and shall miss you.

"I'did not order you. Leaf& It was'
highly improper for, you, betrothed 4, you
are to me, to permit .any attention in my
absence from Lieut. Percy, --While he
was a prisoner on parole waiting for ex
change, I understand that he paid open
court . to you, and that so fur from retiring,
as you ought to have done, you talked to
him, walked with him, rode with him;
danced with himl and actually took him
to your own pew in Trinity Church."
"And why not, sir, pray? do you sup
pose that even if I were married to you,
which fortunately I am not 'yet, that I
should always shut myself out of agreeable
society? Would you in your absence
have . me sit alone in a dark chamber, with
disordered , heir, sighing woefully, and
constantly contemplating the portrait of
the faithful Charles, after the fashion of
the love-torn heroines of romaneo_r No,
indeed ; I might prefer a of single
blessedness, perhaps, but never to im

laughed heartily tit her lover's vexation,„;-
' Pam glad to see 'this, and yet goity,

from sea to find my place usurped by

Oh, the epaulettes of course; he is of

Listen to me Martha Hays. I give
you up. You are undeserving of my
love; but know that whether I fall for
wy enu.ntr3 . : under .Verry.or whether Ire.,

And have you heard it, sir ?'
Not by word of mouth, but your ac

back that ring you wear. I will return
your locket the moment I reach home.

Do you really mean so ?'
Why not ? You wish to be free and

'Take iC, them' and Martha drew it
from her finger. whom will you be

profoundly, and smiling behind her fan.

'Good-bye, my sweet tempered Mr.
Bright,' and the door closed upon him.
Scarcely was she alone than she burst
into tears. There, I've done it now, but
he'll come back to see me once more.—
Silly fellow, hot to guess that I was only
joking about that odious Percy. I'll sand
Phillis for hiin ; no, I'll wait until to
morrow morning; he will come back, I
know. Oh, if he hadn't taken the ring
I shouldn't believe he was really angry.
What a fool I was to give it to him; and
and Miss Martha, in a ragd with herself,
tore her fan to tatters and tossed the bits
on th„ floor. Half an hour afterward the
door-bell rang. It was answered prompt :
ly, and Phillis, the little riegress, came.
with a small package containing the locket.
' Who brought this ?' asked Martha.
' Massa Bright hisself.'
' And what did he say?'
Deed, missis, he didn't say nuthin ;
he just chucked the bundle at tm, and
!toned away.
Well, if he doesn't come here again
this evening, you go to his house the first
thing after breakfast to-morrow morning,
and say that I wish to see him.'
Yes, missis!,
Martha waited in vain a long, lonely
evening, and passed a wretched night

Phillis was dispatched at an early hour;
but, true to his word, Charles had sailed

-ard Petry. Ho was in the very prime
of manhood, a model of chivalrous beauty,
and he had just•been married to-a lovely
girl, when the pressing need of his coun
try called all his powers into active play.
A. series of defeats and blunders had dis
graced the American arms, and it was
felt necessary by the government that
some strong and sudden success should
re-animate the National courage. An
expedition on the frontier was proposed
to Perry • he entered at Mice into the
spirit of the enterprise, and while others
at best but doubtfully hoped, his prophet
ic vision beheld a splem id _triumph on
the bosom of Lake Erie,
' Most of his command he gathered in
Newport and its lovely, sea-girt isle.—
Sueh was bis_influence over_his men, not,
merely by thorough discipline, but by in
fusing into even the rudest of them his
own burning spirit, that'long before they
reached the scene of effort, they would
willingly have laid down their lives for
him. In toil, in privation, in a weary
struggle through the dense wilderness
that than covered the shores .4t)f the lake,
he ever led, animated and consoled them.
"Take good care of my boy, Captain,
Perry." said Charles Bright's father, as
he shook the commander by the hand.
"Aye, that I will, my life-long friend,
and we'll send you such cheering news
that Newport shall, for very- joy } - shake
the merriest peal of bells that ever rang
from old Trinity steeple."
The prayers and blessings of the whole
community followed the young comman
der, who only wan ted opportunity to prove
himself a glorious hero.
With fearful impatience ..did Martha
Hayes wait for news from her lover; the
"Mercury,'' the only Newspaper in ..New
port, was published but once a week, a
Mercury whose winged cap and heels had
been laid aside; but happily-'for Martha
she had no inkling of the magnetic tele

tender having come into the harbor, bear
ing a flag of truce She looked from the
window upan the bay, and saw the little
vessel, and as she did so, beheld a bout
put off from her and pull towards shore.
An officer was in the stern sheets, and
though at too great a distance to recog
nize his features, she thought he resem
bled the lieutenant who had caused the
separation and anger of her lever. She
was not long in doubt ; he bore a dispatch
from his admiral to the authorities of
Newport, regarding an exchange of sea
men, and pendir e , the deliberation of the
worthy fathers, be' hastened to Martha's
door. He was at once admitted to the
presence of the beauty, who received him
with stately composure.
"You are fortunate, Lieut. Percy, in
visiting Newport again this season. I
hardly thought to see you; September
has almost gone. You must have sailed
fast,t4'run by our forts; or are' our batter
les only of spiked cannon ?"
"They are doubtless serviceable, but I
came with dispatches and under a flag of
truce." •
"Ah, how much more powerful you
British officers find flags of truce than
your own ensign."
"Spare your sarcasm my fair friend.—
Beside, although, your cause has been at
times successful at sea, ours has had
greatly the advantage by land."
"Yes, your gallant -Admiral Cockburn
has very lately, indeed for a long time
past, been untiring in firing barns and
robbing all the hchroosts on the shores
of the Chesapeake."
"Ile may, perhaps, in his, zeal, have
far exceeded orders, but his daring can
not be impugned," said Percy, who,
while he endeavored to sustain his na
tiunal valor, felt his chock tingle with
shame at the ruffian acts of the black
guard Cockburn."
Percy continued, turning the subject
of conversation i "We shall soon now have
a triumph in . another quarter, we Shall
be 'victorious on the water, thmigh not
on the sea.. We shall have glorious
news from Lake Erie'
"Indeed we shall, Mr. Percy, lout such

"Never; the Lady Adela is not one,

proud should I be to display you, this

' No, Mr. Percy, it cannot be. Were
you the very head of that illustrious fam

Then indeed I may abandon hope,
but stay ;',this unhappy war produces ha

when it is ended I promise to resign my

[ Martha, wiping away the tears that rained
down her ,cheeks. This prolonged in

my feelings, and leave me.'
' Adorable woman,' said Percy seizing
her hand fervently. ' I go, but can never
forget you.'
' I would not wish you to forget me en

sweet Martha,' said Percy, with faltering
voice; ' but will you not give seine little
token to name you by, and to cherish for
my lifetime ?'
' Yes, my dear.fiterid. I give you this,
o❑ one condition,' and Martha drew from
her arm an antique bracelet of heavy gold,
and of rare Venitian workmanship.—
' rhis bracelet,' she continued, ' formerly
belonged to one of the Ilebrows who lived
in Newport. Ile always said that it lied
been an heir-loom in the illustrious fami

it has never been sold, that it must be

made'to sell it, it will disappear; but;
as a recompense, it confers happiness o❑
the giver. See the motto within it. ' Chi

"Why don't you marry, Joe ?"
"Marry !" was the answer made in the
most contemptable manner accompanied
by a tilt of the chair to allow his slipper
cd feet to rest comfortably on the mantle
"Yes, marry. lam sure you want a

by the quantity of provisions, clothes, and
fuel she smuggles out of the gate."
"What ?"
Down carne the chair, feet and all, and
the bachelor; who was tall, handsome and
yet on the right side of forty, stood up be

home truths so lavishly in his face.
"Fact, Joe; I've seen her do it. Now
a wife would make tliis housekeeping all
straight. Now, do marry, Cousin Joei I

"Where is she to be found ?"
"IVell, let me see." And the little
beauty knit her brow and looked as much
puzzled as if the mune of the person pro
