he ar t whewthe curtain lifted over a fugitive
army, and I the ;despairing shriek rung on
every side, "la Garde reculo," 4' la Gtkrde
Tecate l" makes'ui forget all the carnage in
iynipatby with his distress.
Ney relt tine pressure'of immense respon
'Sibility km his brave heart, and resolved not
no prove unworthy the great trust commit
ted-to his care. . Nothing could be more im
posing than the; rtovement•of that column
to theassault. That guard -,had never yet
recoiled before t> human foe, and the allied
.forces beheld.wilh . aive its Grin and terrible
adiatiee'to the•fimil charge. For a moment
the batteries stoOped playing, and the firing -
Ceased along the British lines, as, without ,
e beating of &drum or the )blast of a bu
gle . to steer their steady courage, they
moved in dead silence over the plain. The
o. o .4.fltontent die artillery opened, and the
'head of that gallant column seemed to sink
'lnto the earth. Rank after rank went
down, yet they neither stopped nor faltered.
Dissolving squadrons, and whole battalions
disappearing one after another, in the des
tructive fire, affected
_not their courage.—
The ranks closed up as before, and each
treading over his fallen comrade, pressed•
firmly on. The horse which Ney rode fell
under him, and . he- had scarcely mounted
another before it also fell to the earth.
Again and itg•aiti did that unflinching man
feel his steed sink down, till five had been,
shot under him. Then, with his uniform
riddled with bullets, and his face singed and,
blackened with powder, he marched on foot
With a drawn sabre at she (ced of his men.
In vain did the' artillery hurl its storm of
fire and lead into that living mass. Up to
'She very muzzle they pressed, and driving
She artillerymen from their own pieces,
tcashed through the Enlist' line. But at
hat moment, a file of soldiers who had laid
flat on the ground, behind a low `ridge of
earth, suddenly 'rose and poured a volley in
their, very faces. Another and another fol
lowed till' one broad sheet of flame rolled on
their bosoms, and in such a fierce and en
expected flow, that human courage could
not withstand it,. They reeled, shook, snig
gered back, their fled. Ney was borne bar k
with the refluent tide, and hurried over the
field. But for crowds of fugitives that forc
ed! him on, he nould have stood alone and,
fallen in his footsteps. As it was, disdain
ing i to fly, though the, whole army was fly
iti, he formed his men into squares, and
endeavored to stem the terrific current, and
would have done so, had it not been for the
thirty thousand fresh Prussians that pressed
on: his exhansted' ranks. For a long time
these squar• stood and let ,the artillery
plough the . But the fate of Napoleon
a l,
was writ, a d though Ney doubtless did ,
what no oth r man in the army could have
done, the 11, cree could not be reversed.— ,
The star that had blazed so brightly orer 1
the world went down in blood,'and the,
" bravest of Ithe brave" had fought his last
battle, It Was worthy of - his great name,
and the charge of the Old Guard at Water
loo, with him at their head, will be / pointed
to by remotest generations with a shudder. ,
We now come to an expiation of his trea
son by a 1)0'11M-execution. The 1 41 es, af
ter they assepibled in Paris, demanded some
victims to appease their anger. Many were-,
selected, but better council prevailed, and
'they were saved. Ney was a prominent
example ; be had routed their armies too
(frequently and too nearly wrested their
crowns from them at Waterloo, to ,be for
given. It Avas intended at first to try him
by martial law, but the Marshals of France
refused to sit ie judgment on so brave, gen
erous and heroic a warrior. By a royal or
dinance, the Chamber of Peers was Idirect
ed to try him. S!urning to take advantage
in any technicalities of the law, be was
speedily fotind gUilty and condenXned to
death, by a majority of a hundred and fifty--
. two. Seventeen were only found to ivote in
his favor. That, be was guilty of treason in
the charge, is evident, but not to than extent
which demanded. his death. NO man had
done more for France than he; or lotted her
honor and glory with a higher affection, and
his ig nominious death is a .lasting, disgrace
to the French nation: Justice was the ex- ,
case,' not the ground, of his condemnation.
Tabare carried out the, principle on which
hi s sentence Was based, would hard ended
in a public massacre. Ney and Labedoy
ere were the only victims offered uP to ap
pease( an unjust hatred. ; Besides, I Ney's
person was :sacred under is solemn I treaty
CWellington had himself made. Onet of the
I articles of that treaty expressly declared that

4lighted fro the coach, he advanced, to-
Ward the filel'of soldiers drawn upasexecu
4oners' ; with !the Same calm mien he was
'OM to on the field of battle. An
Officer stepping forward to bandage . his eyes,
Ile stopped h m with a proud interrogation,
'tare you igr oraut that for more than twen
„years I have been accustomed 'to face
I),ntli ball and - bulletsl" Hp then took 9fr
his hat, and with his eagle eye, note sub
ctued and splemn,. turned toward heaven,
said -with-the same calm and deeided voice
that had larded the tide of so many battles,
I declare before God and man that I have
kever betrayed my country; niey my death

hen turned o the soldiers, -and gazing on
them, struck' one hand upon his , - heart and

liens entered! him, and he fell dead. Shame
upon Ids judges, who, for t o single act,
Should condemn one braver and nobler than
them all, to; so base a deeth. A sterner
Warrior never trod a battle-field—a kinder
Heart never beat in a liuman.bosom, and a
tkuer patriot. never shed his blood for his
country. If' France never has a worse
traitor; the day of her betrayal will be far
distant, and if she has no worse defender,
disgrace will. never visit hey armies. Says
Colonel Napier, in speaking of his death,
it thus, he who had fought five hundred
li.attles for France—not one against her—
was shot as a traitor."
His wife was on her knees before the
king praying for his pardon when the fatal
views was brought to her', and immediately
fainted away, then went' into convulsions,
which - well nigh added another victim to
this base murder. His father, who loviid
him tenderly as the son. of his pride and the
glory of his name, was never told of his ig
dominious death. He was at this time
ei g hty-ei g ht years of age, and lived to be a
hundred years old. He saw, by the mourn
ing weeds of his family, that some catastro
phe had happened, and his father's heart
tbld but too well where the bolt had struck;
hut he made no inquiries, and stbough he
Ilved twelve years after, never mentioned
his son's name, and was never told of his
fete. He knew he was dead, but he asked
riot how nor where he died.

Legend of Philadelphia.
What is it to dreamt it is to Imicr
The talisman of motion, and soar on
To the high places of the upper air,
Like a superior spirit.— TN/is.
With regard to the cause of dreams, one
othe most able and most rational of philos- ;
4nhers (the late Mr. Baxter,) Whom the
present age or any nation bas ,produced,
dmonstrates, that dreams—even all dreams
ihatever—proceed only from the agency of
tiuembodied spirits of the human mind. We
4tould call this beautiful idea the poetry — of
o p et of the phikv of mind has been
l;ess explored or less understood than dreams:
Oaring sleep, the faculties of the body, arc
iiispended, but the mind continues active.
In many cases, dreams are evidently caused
oh influtnced by external impressions ; in
dithers, they seem to be the recollections of
those associations the current of thought car.
ties through the mind without the guidance
of the will. In some, hot very common, in
glances, the mind appears to be free from the
shackles of matter, and to have clearer views
ivid even glimmerings of future events ; and
is otbers-tigain, the highest poivers of the
mind stem to be called into exercise under
the influence of the will.
.- 2 ; ) ."I am not given to dreaming—visions set.
dom trouble me or disturb the quiet of my
Slumbers ; yet are there some : things in 1
dreams which are beyond our philosophy to
define, or reason to explain. I have always
considered. dreams as a part of the mystery '
of nature, through which Deity conveys the
Wonders of His almighty,power.
1: It was my good fortune, as' the sequel will
sthoiv, to reside in an old stone house, built
al. a period when the Swedes located here
rind erected their peculiar style of houses in
iihrious parts of the city proper, then fiinci
fiilly laid out on paper, framed by old - Billy
Bean, and which in after years became
second if not in point of wealth .and intellect
die first in the Union. Oh !' heti I loved
that old Loose, and still revere its tottering
and dilapidated walls! There issomething
Awed in the old buildings--they are low- .
elated with the legends of the past, and. stand
as the monuments or former ages. ' Stories
yinumentble were told of this house—nanny
dr them were enough to appill , the stoutest
heart; and when the report , Was raised of
&being haunted, I smiled at the ignorance

, But on course remained, and that , was
to dig for the buried box and, if discovered,
obey the instructions am,' mysterious visiter.
This must be done quietly and secretly, and
in the dead hour of night. I looked around
amongst my acquaintances to find, if possi
ble, +mein whom I could confide, but not
one presented himself., They were all wild
and reckless spendthrifts, with whom a se
cret would be as moue, ln their pockets.
'Their ,very thoughts were extravagant.--
With them, therefore,l had no chance • for
if my adventure should turn out a fai lure,
what a glorious opponunity would it aPrd
them for amusement at my expense ! No,
I must seek some other.' I did soi--one the
very reverse of my boon companions—an
old negro, Black Joe.. Who is it that does .
not remember that good old soul He was
every man's friend, and everyman was his.
I liked Joe; hence 'my choice. Joe was
discreet and honest in the extreme. I called
upon him and related my story, only bow
er in part. I did this for, the purpose of do
ing away with an impression he had that we
were bound upon a ‘.‘ resurrectionary jour
ney,"as he termed it. '
"Luck you., Massa, nigger no like M dig

and den* rni,,wht be dat,he come across he

"But Joe our object is ditlewpt—we look

" Why, Massa, I be mail."
"Well, know you are, and a right hon

give you five dollars--a good night's work,
Perhaps, Massa, if bOx be big, he take

".4h, Joe, you have an eye to a good job."
" But, Massa, you tell poor nigger a strange

Joe go dead."
" Pear nothing. You' will go ?"
" Yes, Massa, I go--debit or no debil—
nigger never break he word, no how."
Well: to-morrow night I will call for
you—say eleven o'clock:
"Nigger at home—he never go out at
night, no how."
" Good night, Joe."
"GO4 bless you, Massa, take cafe of

An Adventure.
It was night when I quitted Joe's resi
dence', and; as it was early, I concluded to
walk an hour or so before I retired to rest.
-The moon shone ,brightly, the streets were
silvered o'er with its prideless rays, and the
gentle breete wantoned along the lanes of
the city, reviving and purifying the air as it
passed. How beautiful is night. There is
something holy, sacred and mysterious in
night. It seems as if the black pall of death
was spread over all things and hushing na
ture into slumber. The silence, the sombre
shadow of the tall trees, disturbed occasion
ally by some far off, sound, or the rising
wind, and then the many strange voices of
night, which comeupon the ear, renders it
at aIL times, to reflective minds pleasing and
instructive. Night! Ghosts walk at night,
—they pass us in the street as they wander
from and toward the gravelard—they flit
around us and whisper in out dreams. An- -
gels, too, visit the earth at ;night. In the
holy chambers, where innocence slumberl
and truth_ reposes, whisperifig spirits meet.
Their presence calms the troubled mind,
soothes the fevered brain, and fills the soul
with pure and holy thoughts. The smile
which in dreams plays upon the lips , of in
fancy is milled there by hn Angel's kiss.—
Youth cOmmunes, with hedven in the dark,
Silent hours of night, and the lean awakes
to throb and feel howtritly best are they
who Where lit Him, the great Creator of us
Devils, too, , are ;broad at night. 'They
are heard at, aflhours shouting, howling and
blaspheming, as they wander through the
streets, seeking their hdden and, polluted
dens.- Satan bastempleS even in our midst.

the vain rtiffiana were in the- act' f rising
from their " lowly State," I borehe beyond

reached Bth it. • I had Rowan oppo unity ,of 1
observing' mire attentively my fair inpan- ,

her bin:ablesittirecould not hide, that perfect

was - not more than twanty year `'of age,
beautiful and modesther eyes f'll= to the

bin in.,,n soft.musical voice, she b ged me
to see per ho e.
"1 inn so eak, So terrified, sir, atl can
scarcely sta id—the 'shock has ' en too
much form
~" As she spoke shd: started
back-411er eyes were fixed on my face, and
her delicately formed hand was raised and
pointing outt as it were some new4scovery.'
" They hu rt y ou, sir. ' o,l"remeniber it all
now ; !you ,fou ght for - me—hie, a p r, hum

is nothing hilt a scratch; so nit inure alarm
