[From Gody's Lady's Book ]
Great Heaven, what a sight did its
pale rays reveal to him. Extended upon
the floor lay the body Of his Wife, with
her infant clasped to her breast—both
cold in death ! Blood, too, was there—
the life-blood of his guileless wife, and
innocent babe—a cold, coagitlated poi!
"Oh God ! my wife, my child ! ' he
shrieked—his brain reeled, and totter
ing a few paces he fell at her side.—
Soon he recovered himself, and lifting
them gently from the floor; he placed
thehi side by side upon the bed, and
stood silently gazing upon the placid
countenance of his young wife, beauti

Forman, leaning upon a fence, carefully
marking the progress of this drunken
party; his dark eye flashing fearfully;
as the constant clanging of glasses was
heard, and his teeth gnashing with rage
as the dying cadence of a drinking song
came upon his ear. Suddenly he aroused
hiniself, and clutching the fatal knife,
he moved toward the house. Pausing a
moment at the threshhold, to collect his
strength, he burst open the door, and
stood confronted with his foe.
" Vengeance !" he shouted, and ere the
half-drunken wretches could stay his
hand, he seized the tory lcadcr; and
dashed him to the floor. " This," cried
he, plunging his knife into his bosom,
"for my murdered wife, and this,"
plunging it still deeper, " for my inno
cent babe ! Haste with your ftuilty soul
to the father of lies, and tell him that a
widowed husband, made childless by thy
hand, has sent thee to deserved tor
ments !" ,
Then rushing upon the affrighted To
ries, he plunged his knife indiscrimi
nately into those who were nearest him,
until overpowered by numbers, he fell
dead upon the floor, muttering be
tween his clenched teeth, " Ssirttli" and
" Vengeance!"
The Course of Providence,
The Pottsville Democratic Press states
that a few days since, letters from Capt.
James Nagle, and Lieut. Simon S. Nagle,
written from Vera Cruz, were received
by their wives, enclosing a daguerrotype
likeness of each of these officers, as to
kens of love, and a few gOld pieces.—
Lieut. Nagle, in his letter bids his wife
kiss their little son for him. "Poor fel
low !" adds the Press, " he little dream
ed that at the time his letter was writ
ten, his darling bOy was Tiietly
berin in his little grave, on the beauti
tul mountain side of his gratefully rt.:•

this simple but affecting incident. It

no matter how seemingly secure. Here
I is a man who has left the quiet, retired

danger of war, With . an impression, per
haps, of chiincei against his ever return

out the shadow or intimation of a
thought that such a visitor as death can
enter the home he has left. Men are
falling all about him, and lie counts it
almost a miracle that he himself is not
struck down : he
. dges not once think
that the insatiate araher has winged the
shaft that quivers in the breast of the
boy he has left behind him in apparent
safety and security, with the ever watch
ful cyc of the mother upon him, and no
less natural solicitude of relatives and
friends to. guard him from danger. The
father sitting upon the very edge of the
yawning cavern, with the groans of the
dead and dying all about him, and the
whizzing missiles of destruction filling
the air on every side, is spared, while
the child; far aft'ay, in the quiet; seclu
ded mountain home, dies! Such is the
dispensation of Providence! When,

A few years since, Mr. Green, the re- '
formed gambler, took passage on board
a steamboat at Louisville, bound for N. '
Orleans. A short time after the boat '
pushed off; it was discovered that there '
was no less than twenty gamblers on '
beard and much dissatisfaction was ex
pressed, because so many had chosen the
same boat. It was soon agreed tharten
or Fifteen should return ashore at the
first opportunity, and wait for another
boat. Shortly after this determination
was carried into effect, and it was while
Mr. Green was standing on the hurri
cane deck, noticing the landing of a por
tion of his old friends, that his attention
was arrested by a young man looking
anxiously upon the departing gamblers.
He was pale and agitated, and a tear
drop glistened in his eye. This was so
remarkable, that even Mr. Green be
came excited and interested. He sought
the youth, and asked him whither he
was going 1 He replied that lie
c‘ knew not where," as if to shun
further notice, left the deck and de
seceded into the cabin.—Green
inore curious, followed him and by the
expression of sympathy, finally induced
him to unbosom himself. He said that
his reply was correct—that he really
did not know whither he was going.—
He was the son of reputable parents in
Boston ; and had left that city , a few
Weeks Were for the purpose Of visiting
Louisville, "which place," he continued
—"you perceived we have just passed."
The reasons for this course were sad
ones. Ile had a sister at Louisville who
had moved thither, while he was yet a
child. The death of that sister's
band had induced her to her f
tc come on, to protect her its her
widowhood and assist in settling up the
estate. His parents provided him with
all the necessaries for the journey, gave
him permission to tarry a few days at
New York and Philadelphia should he
think proper and also gave him two hun
dred dollars iii elOriey. All Werit smooth
ly and pleasantly until he arrived in
Philadelphia. Here lie took lodgings at
a leading Hotel and soon formed an ac
quaintance with two young men of gen
teel exterior, plausible manners, and
captivating address. Accompanied by
them; he, during the day, visited sever
al of the leading institutions and at night
• accepted an invitation to play a game of
whist; the only game of cards with
which he was familiar. Several days
and evenings were occupied in a
similar manner. Ho then determin
ed to continue his journey, which
he did, by taking passage in one
Of the Lines for Pittsburg. Oe eppear
ing at the depot the next morning, he
was delighted to find his fwd ecitripan-,
ions. They also had business out west,
and they regarded it as a pleasure to
• have so agreeable a companion. After
exhausting the ordinary topics of the
, • day, the gains of whist was again
, thought of and renewed.—They first
I played for cards, then for liquor, and
finally for small sums of money. The
youth became excited, and ere they
reached the iron city, he had lost every
dollar that belonged to him; with the
exception of a sum just sufficient to
pay his passage from Pittsburg to Louis-
?hit again the strangers ihadc tittir
appearance on beard eh Ohio river
steamer, and in the hope of recovering
what he had lost, the deluded young man
played again, when his gold watch was
the sacrifice. On arriving at Cineinna•
ti he was nearly mad. He theii be:
thought hiMself of a package which his
mother had confided to hini for his sis-
ter. He sought for it in his trunk, found
and opened it: It contained a necklace
as a lovegift, and an unsealed letter, in
which Was enclosed a bank note for
100. Still tempted by the demon of
gambling, and still anxious to regain
what he had lost, he returned to his Vile
companions and whist. He played hour
after hour, lost the money, then staked
and lost the necklace. At this point;
the horrors of his situation were indes
cribable. Louisville was at hand, but
how could he meet his sister How
could he explain his folly, his infatua
tion and his crime Ile had left home
with a good llama, on a mission of sa
cred duty; and lie was now a thief and
a robber. He had misempleyed funds
given under hallowed circumstances,
and his condition was indeed desperate.
Confused and perplexed he at last de

the rifled package at the house of his eis
. t cr, return and follow the fortunes of
• the gamblers, who had tempted and be
! rayed him, in the hope that they would
not be so heartless as to throw him oir.
But this hope was of short duration, for
they Were among the party that left the
boat as above described, in consequence
of their being too many of the fraterni
ty on board. It was while they were
returning that he was noticed by Green,
and that hence , a tear forced itself to
. his
eye, when he realized the loneliness and
wretchedness of his condition. He Was
an outcast end a robber—had become
so in a few days, from having ventured
upon what he ettled an innocent game
of whist, and thus he truly said; in re
ply to the question that had been put to
him—that he knew not *hither he was
going.. Green advised him to return to
his sister and make a . frank confession
-,-but his heart failed hiin—he had not
the moral nerve. He could not meet
the being he had so bitterly Wronged.—
He gratefully accepted a slight loan
from Green and soon after departed.
Two years rolled by. Green was
again on the MisSissippi, a passenger on
the steamer Mediterranean, on her way
from Orleans to Louisville. .An acci
dent Which happened by which she was
induced to stop near Plaquemine. While
there, a fellow-passenger remarked that
lie lies just witnessed a horrible sight
• upon the forward deck of the boat.
"Ah !" exclaimed Green—and imme
diately proceeded to the spot designated.
He there beheld five men in chains--

ate heartily, one lady exclaiming there
