was full six feet high, dressed in a a hun

• , No, but a portion of the flogged
will make this house a place of de

belier out of it.'
Put ice can fasten them out, said Steele,
'Nay. better let them trap themselves
in it; replied Brady, calmly. 'There is a
ladder at the window by which you can
go down, and in my opinion the sooner
the better. I hear the British coming al.
Asi he finished speaking, the distant
tread of heroes' feet was heard coming
down the road toward the house.
'Be it so,' replied Steel, passing through
the window on the ladder. 'Let Mary
curve down first.'
The maiden followed her father, and
the two soon reaohed the ground.
'Stand close to the house in the dark
sbnile there.' said Brady, speaking to those
below; and as they obeyed him the fOU rid
of the advancing horseman drew fearfully
Down with you Harry—be quick!' ex
claimed the scout; and hurried thus by
his companion, Bodman soon stood beside
Mary and her father.
Brady followed, and upon reaching the y
ground, hurried forward to a large log ly
ing in the yard directly in front of the
window, behind which he ensconced him
self, painting the muzzle of his rifle to
wards the house.
This had scarcely been done before
the troopers reached the house, sprang
from their horses, and in a few moments
the scout saw the head of Langsford thrust
feces the window. To level and fire,
the effect already noted, was but the work
of natant;: and as Captain fell heavi
iy k iiptvi the floor, the tramp of more
. .
w;is heard, and the rebel band of
Marion galloped to the spot.
The noise of barring doers and secu•
ring the first story windows of the dwel•
ling was heard for a moment after the ar
rival of the Americans in front of the
house, and Caen all relapsed into'silence.
The ni,n of Marion had dismounted and
surnmorted the house, but the shade of
the night was so gloomy where Bodman,
Steel and Mary stood, that they remained
rbed by either friend or roe.
Ben Brady, the scout still crouched
behind the log, with the muzzle of the
gun drected towards the window out of
which he had escaped within mom ar,
which the light was still burning.
Suddenly the moon was covered by a
cloud and diirkness rested like a pall up
on everything around. Then the voice of
Brady rose gradually on the air, as he ex
claimed :
Mist, Badman—come this way, and
bring the girl and her father with you.—
Quick as the moon will soon make its ap
pearance again.
Boilinen grasped Mary by the arm, and
glided from the shade of the house, but had
scarcely proceded twenty steps when the
muzzles of two carbines were thrust
out of the window and pointed ' , ..yard
them in the gloom, while the dusky hg.
urea of the troopers who held them were
plainly discernable within the apartment.
The rifle of Brady was raised in the
twinkling of an eye, and the three pieces
belched forth their contents together. A
wild shriek instantly rang upon the air,
and that voice of agony was recognized
by every rebel soldier as belonging to Ma
ry Steel.
There was an instant of deattplike si
lence, again broken by the avails of the
wounded girl, but this time they were
drowned by the cries of vengeance which
burst from the lips of Marion's men, as.
like so ninny blood hounds, they rushed to
the assault. . .
'Spare not a man!' shouted a well-known
musical voice, rising high above the din
and tumult of the conflict. •Death to our
'Down with the Britkh—on !'
And the sound of heavy blows falling
upon every door las mingled with the
sharp crack of rifles and the curses of the
combatants, as the assault progressed.
In the midst of the conflict, and ere an
entrance had been gained, flurry Bodinan,
followed by Ben Brady, suddenly appear
ed before Marion. .

'For what7'
''There is an unguarded way into
cellar by the spring house.'
A shout Iroin Marion brought the requi
site number of inen around him ; and they
followed Bottum' and Brady to the place
of entrance. a harrow passage led Iron'
the spring house to the cellar, and in a
few minutes the party stood within the
building. It was the work of but an in
stant for Bodutan to find the stairs, up
which they carelully ascended to the cel
lee; it was not fastened, and passing thro'
it they stood in the hall which led to the
outer door of the building. It was as mirk
as pitch, and they could net discover a
man, but could hear the amps of several
besides themselves near the raid of the
halt, where crash after crash the Lluws

'Fallow me to the second story,' unut
tered Bodtann in a low lone, and silently
they groped their wny up :Pairs.
As they reached the top of the stairs.
the light shone out from the room where
the carbines had been discharged, and they
hurried to the dour. Five troopers stood
prepared for conflict within the apartment,
whale two bodies lay null on the flour.
To discharge a volley into the room
which killed every trooper was the work
of a moment, and then rushing forward
Brady thrust a candle into the window,
and uttered a loud well-known shout It
was answered by twenty men, and in a few
moments several of :Marion's men had
mounted the ladder into the roots.
The remainder of the contest was of I
short duration. The British fell to a man,
while scarcely on American suffered in
the strife. The wound received by Mary
Steel, turned out not to be mortal ; and
shortly af er her recovery, which happen

the wife of Harry Rodman ; and for many ,

adversity may throw its dark shadows across
our pathway, yet we should be assured of this
that "the Judge of all the earth will do right."
During the past year the bounties of a kind
Providence have not been withheld front our

Honorable industry in its varied departments

many of our citizens, yet no fear of famine,
no dread of impending public or social calam

for past blessings, or weakness or trust for the
