had at length promised Unwell so much satiate°.
tioo to the result of his :shore, as to deliver the
holy saersmeat to hiss. Yet there wits no coo
fession—no other seiwiration but that of reit
crated innocence. The sister remained in the
same mysterious Alm; and seemed to wait iA
patience the owning tbey of the brother's doom.
A few days now oily intervened for his des

At length I told her that the scaffold oo which
her brother was to bang, was already tweeted in

the warrant had already helm read to him, tad

good reason therefor could be gives.
I informed her 'built was, if the utmost prcitip.

had the right to graatythe reprieve. I answered
that it was the prerogative of the governor, who
was at the seat of government, and volunteered
rupelf to be the bearer and the advocate of her
claims to the indulgence which she prayed
" Rear me to the governor as epeeidly as post.

oracle and the advocate of my prayer.
-Oar arrangements were made. fur our departure
the next morning, and the same evening we had
an audience with the governor. After the state ,

the circumstances which in my possession,

eoutre of the room where the governor was seated,
asked the privileges Of speaking ie private with
him. I of course, Unmet:tai l -I, ..;cuoirvr, and
gave her the fulness of opportunity which her
precaution desired.
What tuek place at this interview was then a
myotery to the, and I sought out, nor felt an anx
iety Lu inquire into it, so that it was effieieut in
the object for which it was granted - It soon
proved so.
Th., next day I wa4 called upon by the were)
tary of the ezeoutive, with a reprieve of two
weeks for my divot.
Oar immediate return to the city was requi.
site to make our success available, and we lost
Dot a moment mu retracing our way homeward
The day before the contemplated execution, the
reprieve was placed iu the heads of the sheriff,
and the sister again a•lmitted ti the oell, and to
a private iuterview with the brother.
After 116 had been engaged to wavers. for
wore time, L approached the cell, nucosecious
that the was there, and in my unexpected inter
ruption, heard as they hastily closed their coot
serastiou, the last words of the sister.
" He will then be far on his arty."
A new light seemed to burst upon me, and I
detained the gilder, while l owned upon the grafi
tade of the brother as a pies, if my unrewarded
labor in his behalf constitu ted so assurance of
the sincerity of my interest is him, whereon I
was entitled to a revelation of tho mystery that
daily separated me more and more from their
eoefidenee, and removed them farther and farther
from my assistance.
A period just one week preceding the expire ,
Lion of the reprieve, was fixed by them as the day
on which I should be made acquainted with every
menet fi latish they seeme4 so deeply isolated.
TM' day St length arrived, and the following
was the revelation given by both to me, am we
met - in the narrow end dint lighted sell.
The prisoner was as innocent and ignorant of
the deed or the cootemplation of it, as the infant

The Days of Steamboats on the Upper Lakes.
Jost forty years ago the first steamboat that
ever ploughed Lake Erie was built With the
aid of spasmodic revolutions of her wheels and
energetie tug' at long towing lines, the nawirldly
hulk was got under way and disappeared in the
haze of Lake Erie, a sueoessful experiment ; an
annihilator of four miles an hour, and the ape.

the Banks and cried, " Talyols niches." They
looked and believed that it was—not the spirit

sufficed to pines these breathing motors io the
