THE PATRIOT'S STRATAGEM.
Night had - Wet in deep and dark, and in a
small log cabin, situated a few miles from
Trenton, New Jersey, set five men, four of
whom were seated around an old oaken table
in the centre of the room, engaged in playing
cards, while they frequently moistened their
throats with lager draughts from an earthen
' jug that stood on the table.—They -were
heavily bearded, course looking men, and
from their dress, which somewhat resembled
the British uniform, they were evidently
tories. The other, a stoutly built young
man, in continental uniform. lle sat
in a corner of the room with his face buried
in his hands. "Tomrsaid one of the tories,
rising from the table and seating himself near
the prisoner, for such he evidently was,—
"Tom yodr and I were school boys toga ther,
and I like yen yet,—Now why can't you
give up your wild' notions and join us? You
are our prisoner, and if you don't we shall
hand you over to headquarters to-morrow;
while if you join us, your foatune is made;
for with your bravery and talents you will
soon distinguish yourself in the royal cause.
and after this rebellion is crushed out you

a in the army: . Now there are two
alternativeh do you choose?",
"Neither," sairilie — young man, as he
raised his head and looked the tory steadily
in the eye; "I am now, tis'you say your pris
oner, but when that clock strikes twelve I
shall leave you. I shall disappearin a cloud
of fire anti smoke, and neither you nor your
comrades, nor even myself can prevent it.
You may watch me as close as you please,.
tic me hand and foot if you will, but a high
. er power than yours or mine has ordained
that I should leave you at that time."
"Poor fellow, his mind:Wanders," said the
tory, "he will talk differently in the morn
. ing, ' and,he returned to his seat at the table,
leaving thejouth with his head resting on
his hands. .
When the. clock struck -elei r en, the young
man took a pipe and some tobacco from his
pocket, and asked the tory leader if he had
any objections to his smoking.
_ "No none in the least,"said he, adding
with a laugh," that is if you'll promise 'not
to go off in a cloud of smoke."
The young man made no reply, but imme.:
diutely filled and I%hted his pipe having
done which he.arose and commenced-acing
the floor. Ire took. 'half dozen turns up and
down each 'sidshif the room, approaching
nearer to stheitade each time, when having
exhaustedAiS pipe, he returned_ to 'his seat
and refilled it.,.He continued smoking until
the,elock,strtte twelve, when -he arose from
his seat and slowly knocking the ashes from
his pipe said, "Theri, toys; it is twelve

the angelic lady added a hearty - "God bless

them had doubly canned all the kindness
that could be heaped upon them. Some of
the poor fellows burst into tears and spoke
the praises of their benefactor, as sick and

observed that there was a decided difference

summer, I had a girl who was exceedingly
behind in all her studies. She was at the

about her books. It so happened that as a'
relaxation,: I let them at times during school
hours unite in sin gin , .. I noticed that this
girl had a remarkilitlielear sweet voice—and
said to her, "Jane you have a good voice
and you may lead.the singing." She brigh

day I was going home, I overtook her with

Yes, here we hive it—she was encouraged:
She felt that she was dull in everything.—
She had learned a self-respect, and she, was
thus encouraged. •
Sonic twelve or thirteen years ago there
was in Franklin school an excessively dull
boy. - One day the teacher wishing to look
at a word. took up the lad's dictionary, and
on opening it found the blank leaves covered
with drawings. He called the boy to him.
"Did your draw these ?" said the teacher.
"Yes sir," said the boy with downcast
"I do not think it is well for boys to draw
in their books," said the teacher, 'land I
vrould rub these out if I were you; but . they
are well done. Did you ever take lessons ?"
"No sir," said ths boy, his eyes sparkling.
"Well, I think you have a talent forthis
thing. I should like you to draw me some
thing when at your leisure at home and bring
it to me. In the meantime see how well you
can recite your lessons."
The boy felt he was understood. He be
gan to love his teacher. He became anima
ted and fond of his books. He took• delight
in gratifying his teacher by Via faithfulness
to his studies. The boy became one of the
first scholars, and gained the medal before
he left school. After-this-he became an en
graver, laid up money enough to go to Eu
rope, studied the works of the old masters,
sent home productions from his own pencil,
which found a place in sonic of the best col
lections of paintings, and is now one of the
most prominent artists of.his years in the
country. After the boy gained the medal,
he sent the teacher a beautiful picture as a
token of respect, and I doubt not, this day,
he feels that the teacher, by the judicious
encouragement he gave to the natural turn
of his mind; has had a great moral and spir
