placed in Captain Keep's Company, Col. Shep

marched to Claverack, on the Hudson, where we
endured the greatest sufferings from disease,
want of provisions, clothing, &c. We soon learn- j

no further. Here they were strongly fortified,
but must have known they were in a bad situa
tion. I suppose they thought of Bennington,
and that the Green Mountain boys would be at
thir tacks. Sexn they ohos to risk a buttle, and
attacked the right wing of our army. This was
'a bloody half day until elark at night, and our
forces lay on the ground ready for the event of
the morning. The British returned to their quar
ters, rested awhile, and then attacked again on
the same ground. Here, as in the former en
gagement, Arnold had centra and of the lighting
forces. He did rot lack skill or courage in this
battle, and would ' gii-e the i I his due.' The
enemy fell back, and we took some prisoners and
several pieces of artillery. We lay upon our
arms that night, and were so near the British
that we could hcar the Hessians relieve their
guards. A great nuise Was kept up in their
camp all night. At daylight we matched for
their camp, but when v got where they were,
they were not there, execjt wounded, sick and
doctors to attend them, w h e they were quartcr
cS. in large tents. We pursuVl the main lxdy,
passing dead horses, the wrechof wagons and
other things burned on their rc-tat, and came
up with them at Saratoga Creek, vjiere they had
planted their artillery. They complimented os
with balls and shells tor perhaps two fmrs, with
out benefit to themselves or detriment us, ex
cept to one poor fellow, who was killel. We
were under a steep hill, and I saw the bahand
shells pass over us, but we lay as easy and qct

surrender were finally concluded. Our brigade
was ordered to march down the liill and parade cn
the road leading .South, with Jill the music of the
brigade in the centre, playing "Yankee Doodle.'

and how shall I descrilK- the most miserable,
lilthy, ill looking beings I ever saw in human
form. But the fag end was the wemen, I sup
j.omj. Many of them led horses, upon the bucks
of which were thrown large oblong bags sew ed
up at the ends. These bags contained provision,
blankets, clothing utensils, &c, and in many ca
ses were the heads of children sticking up above' backs?., through holes in the bags.
Our orders were to maintain a respectable si-
lence, but this last w as too much ! One ventu

Eread and Eutter.
Bread and butter is a theme, however homely,
on which a volume might 1 written. Althought
the appetite may tire of other-tliings, on tliis
substantial ground it makes a. stand. It must be
trained fo the liking of a far-fetched cookery,
while the taste acquired at so much pains departs
suddenly. Civiliy.ed men enjoy one kind of foexl,
and catrnibesls another. Soin- are very simple
in theirhabits, and like of Cyrus, at the courtly
table to his grandfather, wonder at the multitude
of dishes. But 110 man, Christian or heathen,
quarrels with his bread and butter. It is
acceptable the year round, onl tlio t ante univer
sal, and never palls. You cannot cat it to sur
feit or ever return to it with disgust. If it in a
bad quality, that dies not destroy your affection.
You blame the baker, but stick to the bread. I
Goad brea and buttrr in the fuiimer time are
peculiarly didieious. the very stafl'oOife. Wh-n
the llonr is the finest wheat, the yeast of a buoy
ant nature, and the loaf, with its crust proper! v
baked, has whiteness of snow and lightness of a
sponge ; when the butter has thefiavor of fresh
grass and the color of new-minted gold, eat to
your he-art's content, and desire nothing else.

How a Coat was Identified.
In a Justice's Court, in this city, a case was
recently decided in a novel way. A coat was in
dispute, and the evidence was direct and positive
for both claimants ; the parties were Irish ond
full of grit, " ready to spend all they had rather
than to give up beat." The alfoir had been care
fully examined, and the court was in a " quan
dary ."not knowing w ho had the best claim 011
the garment. However, a moment before his
Honor was to sum np the evidence, PatrickPowi
er, one of the claimants, made the following pro
position Ujr.ictU.iug the affair. Said Patrick :
" Tinierthy Maguiie, now you nay that eoat
bt-loiigs to yourself intirely. I say it is my own.
Now mind ye, Timothy, that both iv us will take
thq coat an' look it all over, an' the man that
finds his name on it shall be the owner."
" Done," said Timothy.
" An' yell slick to the bargain ?" said Pat
rick. " To lie sure," answered Timothy, and yes
rejoined counsel on both sides.
' Thin hxk at it," said Patrick, as he passed
the coat into the hands of Timothy, who vainly
searched every part of it for his name, and pas-
sed it to Patrick, bcastingly saying, "an now
let us se e if you can be findin' the likes of your
own name on the garmef.t."
'Ye '11 stick to the 'grecment," said Patrick,
eagerly grasping the coat.
Ijon the h.'nor ov a man," replied Timo
thy. ' Thin hould on a bit," sail Patrick, as ha
drew his knife and opened a corner in the collar
of his coat, taking therefrom two very fcmall
peas, exclaiming as he held them in Ins hand
There do you see that ?"
" Y'is, but what iv that," said Timothy.
" A divil a dale it has to do w id it it's mo
