Man-, in tho sultry months of summer, abandon thu thronged and Itemed city of Nmv York, and settle themselves in some shady nook in the vicinity of tho East Ilivcr, to breathe the invigorating air ol'tlie country, and gather fresh strength to withstand the sapping inlluenccs of a winter of toil or revel ry. Yet few of these, as tlicy pass the nu merous little islands gemming tho bright w a ters of that river, or loiter along its borders, nrc awato that they are floating by scenes re plete with classic rcminiscnccs of our Dutch ancestors, and are treading upon ground hal lowed by the talcs and traditions of other times, and of the loosely breeched heroes who figured in the dreamy days of tho Dutch dynasty. Almost every inlet in this river, from Kip's Bay up to Tbrog's Neck, has been the resting place of a traditionary cha racter ; and every island the haunt of a broad-bottomed bandid of the true Dutch school Timo has thrown his mantle over them ; 'and though for a while their vices gave ;t notoriety to their names, yet like many mora worthy and famous than them selves, they have sunk into oblivion, and the places that knew them know them no more, llerc and there, however, a few escaped the general doom ; and although held in no great estimation in their own time, their rough rliar.icters are handed down to later age, mel lowed by the hand of time, which softens their vices and throws a shadowy air of chi valry around their very crimes. A huroof this stamp was Hyder Van Klof ten, the robber of Great Barn Island. He lookup bis abode many, many years ago upon an island, within a few miles of the goodly city of Nieuw Amsterdam, and lying within tho very jaws of that angry vortex of waters, generally known as Hell Gate. He was a stalwart, strapping fellow, who feared neither man nor devil, and who was gifted with a blunt conscience, an iron arm, and strong marauding propensities, which be in dulged to tho great annoyance of tho good folk inhabiting the neighboring shores. 1 1 is expeditions wero at first carried on by stealth, and in his own immediate vicinity ; but as ho escaped with impunity, they gradually embraced a greater extent of country, and be came moro frequent and daring; until at last they were carried on in the very heart ol the city, and under tho vcrv nose of its nritablo Governor, William Keift, himself. Indeed so tmccasiiitr did thev at last heroine that ho gavo the inhabitants of the Colony no rest either by day orby nisjhl, and was always suro to pounce upon those who least expected him. Nothing was known to come amiss to him ; he robbed a house, a stable, a lieu roost, or a watermelon patch with equal alacrity, for ho was a universal genius, and adapted himself with great phi losophy to circumstances. He did not, how ever, confine himself exclusively to these ; for it was well known that be had several times taken impertinent liberties with the pockets ol snnioof the dnrnitariesnf the town who had been so unlucky as to cross his path, and whose wealth and respectability should bavo shielded them from his rapacity. To tlioso who submitted quietly, he was suavity itself but to those who niado the slightest show of resistance, he threw out significant hints about "six inches of cold iron" "abed among tho lobsters" "a tumble over thu clills at Kip's Uay" and u variety of argu ments of tho same convincing nature ; and generally dinu'sscd them with a tweak at the nose by way of impressing his remarks upon weir memory His house was perched, liko an eagle's ncsi upon a small craggy eminence on Barn Inland ; and on the very brink of tho rock winch from its elevated site afforded a com jnanding view of evcry thing that might pass up or uuwu inu river., iierc lie would stand for hours on tho watch, liku a fish-hawk on tho look-out for his prey ; and wo to tho un lucky craft that ventured to skim tho wa ters when Ilyder was on Ins stand. It was suro to bo boarded and plundered, its owner battered and pommelled, and not uufrcqucut ly favored with a supplementary souso in tho river, to cool tho uncomfortablo excitement which such a pleasant littlo adventure niirlu be supposed likely to awaken even in tho phlegmatic temperaments of tho then sole navigators of these titers, Tlicso occurrences gradually becamo so ficquerit, that his name grew to he as great u terror iy water as it was already liy land : i ti.i.:ii,..i i. , . I, ' ' mid so well sk.lled ral.e in all the current, and eddies that guarded hit island, that ho hesitated not nt nny time of tide, to encoun ter tho terrors of tho Pot, Frying Pan, and nog s uacK. lie was laminar with every rock, from tho foot of Bluckwcll's Island to Throg's Neck, and lie had even ventured through the boiling waters of the Kills, along the coast of Little Barn Island, until be skimmed his bark over the quiet, dreamy waters of tho Ilarlacm Ilivcr, and following its devious course, emerged upon the broad bosom of tho Hudson, and returned to -his own rock-bound nest by sailing round the city being tho first who discovered that Nicuw Amsterdam w,is ill reality situated on an Island Sometimes his skiff was seen darting over tho calm waters of FhishingBay, ordoubling the point of Hiker's Island; at others it was rippling though tho river near Throg's Point; now it would be espied nestling in some clelt of rock at tho foot of Blackwell's Island, while its owner was keeping a hawk-like watch Tor tho appearance ol some adventure upon tho Bay ; and again it would swing for lours at alienor behind sonic rock, swaying lazily in the rippling breeze, or whirling with tho eddies of tho changeful curicnt. But whatever Ins employment ot the hour did an adventurous craft but put forth from the land, his occupation was nt an end, his little skill' shot out upon the deep water, and (lew liko a bird on tho wing in pursuit of its prey Few escaped him. ho quiet were his move ments, and so swilt his boat, that many at tnbuted his success to improper associations, and threw out dark hints, that he had deal ing with a certain character notorious for being no better than he should be; and who, it is shrewdly suspected, has a sort of kindly feel ing toward those whom the world regards with an unfriendly eye. These were all sources of great tribulation to the inhabitants of the Colony ; but they were nothing compared to the consternation that would prevail when the sturdy Hyder was seen urging bis piratical craft across Kip's Bay, and making directly fur the town. All was uproar. Tho fowls were driven to to their roosts horses were haltered and hobbled in the stables the doors bolted and locked, and tho keys lodged in the profound pocket of every Dutch proprietor. It is also asserted that in several instances the pigs were driven into the parlors and that n number of the more wealthy of tho inhabi tants seized upon their money chests and buried them in their cellars. But as a worthy chronicler very properly observes, the world is given to scandal; and tlicso remarks being uttered by mere nobodies against persons who were rich and respectable, it would be as well to attach little credit to them. It is also asserted, that upon one of these occasions the Governor sent eiders to have a small fort, which looked out upon the Bay, garrisoned with troops, the guns mounted, and every preparation made lor a vigorous resistance in case of an attempt to storm the town a measure which thev had every reason to apprehend from their knowledge of tho desperate character of their formidable though single-handed enemy. let wall all Ins notoriety thero was a strange diversity of opinion as to his perso nal appearance, sonic represented him as hard-featured rtifiian, of about fifiv, with a face seamed with scars, Others and these were the young and beautiful of the other sex, whose hearts weru alive to the romance of his character, and were softened bv bis feats of chivalrous hardihood contended that he was a young fellow, of fine form and features a perfect model of a man ; that his clothes were in the last Dutch fashion ; that he was attired in a dashing broad-skirled coat with most captivating red stockings, and that his small clothes (so called) were unexcep- tinnalile, Deiug neatly lilucUt'd at tho knee. and of the most voluminous dimensionsin the nether extremities. The old ladies, however, who owned piss and poultry, described him as all that was horrible cruel, relentless, and bloodthirsty ; and the heads of the decapitated fowls which ho not unfrequcntly left in the rifled roosts, bore amnio testimony to the truth ol this description. The inhabitants of Nieuw Amsterdam were an enduring people; but there is a li mit even to Dutch endurance; anil the de predations of tins insatiate freebooter had increased to such a degree, that the Colony was becoming impoverished, and tint venom of. its inhabitants was at last fairly excited. About this tunc, too, a dead body was tuck ed tqi in the Bay ; and the dismissal of the soul was unanimously saddled on tho broad back of Ilyder. The town now was in great commotion ; knots of four or five gathcr eded in various parts of tho city, smoking vehemently, and casting furtive glances over their shoulders. 'Tis true they uttered not i word ; but thuir looks were portentous, and big with the fate of the bandit. Thero was evidently a smouldering fire in tho Colony, which wanted but littlo to Ian it into a flame. and to excite them to measures that would strike dismay into tho heal t of the hero of Uarn Island. That very night it came. At nine in tho evening, a messenger, wheezing with corpulency and alarm, burst in upon an ssemuiy ot burgomasters and ."sclicpens, who were smoking in solemn conclave at the ta vern of Myndert Quackenboss, with the as tounding intelligence that there had been a collision between Hyder Van Kloften and thu Governor in winch the latter had been worsted that tho brigand had broken his pipe tweaked his nose and annoyed his hinder parts with sundry applications of his foot, far morn vigorous than agreeable and after rifling his pockets, bad taken bis de parture, leaving the worthy governor very mucii iiggrievcu in uouy, aim not a little in flamed in temper. Great was the consternation and nnnroar. Hand-bills wero posted at every corner, of fering a reward for the capturo of the mis creant. A general meeting of the burgo masters was called to pass resolutions Ant', it is rumored, such was tho general personal apprehension of each, that Klaas Vhii Hig, a person of nosmall note, through fear of midnight assasinalion, slept for a nnuie wee witn a lingo unit rotund iron pot-lid resting a shield upon his stomach, to tho convexity of which it adanted itself ad mirablythat being the particular portion of ins uuuy which tnu portly Atynhocr on all oc casions regarded as tho first object of his so licitudc. 1 ho afternoon of the day appointed for ino meeting oi um sages ot iNimiw linstcr dam was dull and gloomy. Tho sky was darkened with clouds, as somhro and porten tous as tlioso which overhung tho destinies of llio city. And as tho night set in, a storm burst upon them in unmitigated fury. Tho rainswept tliroueh the streets in Ioiil's himu. Tho wind howled fearfully through tho trees, uiiuamong ino pointed roots. '1 ho weather cocks screochod on the tall irablos like do- mons at revel. The whole bay was lashed into a sheet of foam ; and old houses thero wero old houses oven in that olden timo rocked to their verv foundations. I hose whoso lank excluded them fro , participation in the town deliberation, drew closer to their firesides; the vrouws, both old and young, odged their seals nighcr to each other : tho negroes dewted their kit clions, and with starting eyes and chattering teeth, ventured unrcbuked into tho parlors. A chilly tecling of dismay seemed to pervado all classes : conversations wero low and mys terious ; furtive glances were thrown toward tho dark corners of the room ; one and all declared that this was tho very night for Ilyder to be on tho wing ; and not a soul in the wholo colony but was in momentary an prehension of seeing the dark scowling brow of thebrigand, peering over his shoulder, and fancied his pockots rilled Ins nose tweaked and that portion ot Ins person, wlior honor is wont to take her humblo seat, suf fering under tho form of aggression known to bo habitual to this most irreverent ma raudcr. The potentates of tho town, howovcr were men of other calibre persons of great rotundity of abdomen, and of corresponding courage. They had viewed the spoliations of Hyder with an angry oye, and thought it full time that his high-handed domination should be put to an end In stout hearted squads of four or five, well mufllcd with shawls and wrappers, they set out lor tho placo of meeting keeping the middle of the path, and having a wary eye about them, to guard against surprise or am- buscado lor however bold and bravo Alex andcr or Julius Crcsar, or other worthies of thu samo kidney, may have been in taking the too in open combat, yet history atlorded tho worthy burgomasters no authority fur supposing that even they would have preferred to l c first made aware ot in presence by an a posteriori demonstration. Tho house of Myndort Quackenboss stood not far from the brink of tho hast Kiver. was a tall, caunt building of gables. It had a flaunting sign over the door, whose mourn ful creaking sank deeply into the hearts and courage of tho patriotic fathers of Nieuw Amsterdam, and tilled them with gloomy forcbodincs as to the late of their beloved city Not a man crossed the thrcshhold, who had not meditated the passage tho a resolution of the most determined character. Nothing can be moro impressive, than an assemblage ol the age and intellect ot country in the hour of darkness and danger met together to devise means for averting some great national calamity; and history loves to pause tor an instant to coutomplati so solemn, so touching a spectacle. Such was the meeting of that night. There was the wealthy Ktipcrt Ten Eyck whose cabbage gardens and money bagi were tho envy of the New Netherlands. And there was the profound and judicious Klaas an 1 lie not to mention many others men of war renowned for valor on the field and ludgmeut in thu council. And as they sat round the hall which was wont to be th scene of these reverend assemblages of all the wealth and wisdom of Nieuw Amsterdam with their ample Itankards at their elbows and their pipes all lighted, like tho fearft array of tho matches of a loaded battery lyndert Viuackcnboss, in theexurbrant ex ultation of his heart, was tempted to with draw his pipe from his lips to pause for half ,i minute in the emission ot his cuiliiirr vol leys of smoke and to burst forth in the triumphant ejaculation, that if such a meet iii'' could not put down this vagrant thief, then nothing could and he only wished that io were there to see them ! Scarce was this complimentary remark ut teied, than, as it in answer to it, came sharp, loud knock at the door, which had been locked to prevent intrusion, A death. like stillness pervaded tho room, and a more deathlike paleness was seen to pervade the habitual rubicuiidity ol the bold speaker who lad ust given utterance to so fearfully rasl t sentiment. The knock was repeated with redoubled violence. INot a soul stirred ti there came a third and louder summons, and then a mow ovidontly from a foot that seem eilMell used to such application of its vigor, which carried lock and bolt before it : and) stalked the applicant, a man of gigantic loight, mulllcd in a cloak from which the water streamed in torrent; with his broad brimmed bat slooched down so as completely to tin to lus tac.e 'Donder and blitzen, what a night!" cx lalmed he, as he entered, and stalking across the room and drawing a small stool Irom a corner, be seated himself directly in front of the fire. Then without heeding the perplexity of tho assembly, nor tho utter dismay ol the landlord, he threw off Ins wet wrapper, displaying a pair of shoulders of immense breadth, and a prolusion of shaggy elf-locks dripping with rain. Th ro was something too, which occasionally glittered iieneatlilus vest in the light ol the fire, which struck those who caught sight of it, as not ii nl i ko the butt ol a pistol Without entering into conversation with any one, or appearing to notico those about him, thu stranger drew a pipe Irom lus pock et; and lighting it by a coal of fire, com ninnced smoking with tho coolness and case of ono at Ins own fireside. It was the good fortune and the pride Nieuw Amsterdam to number among; her sons, ono atotlel otcinbacli, a man of crrcat inirepiuuy aim vaior, masmucu as no liau served in several desperate campaigns against thu Indians, in which there had been a furi ... .. . - .II... 1 . I. ... ; i . . , ous dischargo of menaces and hard epithets on the part of the Dutch, but little waste of other ammunition. Uu these occasions, StofTcl, being a man of large frame, and of puwcrtul lungs, acquitted himself in a man ncr that drew upon him the annlauso of the whole province, and established for the name ol hteinhacli a fame for dauntless valor, lit' tie inferior to that of Hyder himself. Such was the man who now took a prom incut part in tho deliberations of the sages of Niouw Amsterdam, and upon whoso well- known energy they now relied. Nor did Stofiel disappoint them. Refreshing him sen witn a deep draught irom the flagon at It elbow, and drawing a few deliberate whiffs from his pipe, while thu smoke floated liko halo around him ho roso and approaching ino stranger, wuu civility natural and uccom ing to truo bravery, informed him. the meet ing was one of a privato nature ; that it was composed ol tho wealth and magistracy o thu placo, assembled for the purpose of delib erating on matters of deep import to the welfare of their city. The person whom he thus addrosscd hoard him out without changing his attitude other wise than to cast a savago and contemptuous scowl over his shoulder, and slightly to draw up his lip, in a manner not unlike thu grin of a imii-uog preparing to bite ; and then taking ms pipo irom his mouth ho replied gruffly, " that ho was glad to find himself in such good company. That as tho night was stor my ho had no intention of departing until the rain had ceased. That if the wealth and magistracy of the place were not nleasei with his company, tboy were welcome to rid themselves of it, by going about tboir bus! noss." Uttering these few words in the abrupt stern voice of one not to ba trifled with, ho rosumed hu pipe, nnd drew his stool an alacrity which, in ono unuitialty so corpu still nigher to the Crr. . Mently inajrstic, wi some wht uncommon, II had. however, one to eopo with, who like himself was a dealer in hard language, and know its full value ; and although somo what startled at being thus bearded by an unknown man, still Stofiel felt that the eyes of the world and of posterity wero upon him, and determined not to yield without a farther effort. Belching out a portentous oath, ho drew back farther and farther for tho pur pose of a cood start, of course liko a lion ' I ! I i- . . preparing lur ins spring aim loriuuuie was it for tho stranger that ho did so; for it gave Klaat Van Hig an opportunity of intcr- icringio prevent a collision, wiutn iroui mu known character ot Steuibacb, and the rug' cod strength, and savage bearing of tho stran ger, promislied to be lcartul, and to endanger the upsetting of all the tankards in the room. With that shrewd policy which rendered him so efficient in council, Klaas by gentle words gradually soothed the irritated feelings ot the Dutch warrior, who exhibited himself mag nanimously placable ; and to prevent farther angry discussion between him and the stran ger, and perhaps to save tho dignity of the town from further degradation, it was pro posed and settled, that without larther delay, the object of the meeting should be taken up. To all this the intruder paid no attention, remaining silent, puffing out dense clouds of smoke, and apparently having a contidcncc in himself which lus powerful frame, and in dications of great bodily strength, fully war ranted. No sooner, howovcr, was the namo of tho dreaded Hyder mentioned than his attention seemed awakened. Turning his head toward the speaker, whilo his small black eye glittered like fire beneath his shag gy brow, he growled out, in a startling tone: " You had bottor let Hyder Van Kloften alone; he's not fond of being troubled ; nor is ho apt to forget thoso who meddle with lus affairs." For a few moments thero was a general feeling of dismay, and a deep silence. Sev eral of the burgomasters cast wistful looks at the door ; some roso to their feet, and others deserted their scats. Knots gathered in dif ferent parts of the room, and a buzzing con sultation was held in very vehement Low Dutch. I he only effect that this produced upon the stranger was to induce him to slouch his hat still lower over his face, hitch his stool still nighcr the fire, while he smoked away as composedly as before. Again did the courage of the brave Stofiel stand them in stead ; for stalking up to the source of all this most unpreccnted distur bance, and looking him full in the back, with a glance, which, had it encountered his, must have made his heart sink within, he said: "Harkye, sirrah you are an intruder here, and if you intend to remain, must not meddle with what docs not concern you. If you do " Ho did not finish the sen tence in words; but the fierce manner with which he thumped his stomach, and the an paling tone of his voice, produced a prodig' ious sensation among the sages of Nicuw Amsterdam, who afterward regarded him us oue only too uravc. No sooner had he finished, than the stran gcr, extraordinary as it may seem, nothing daunted by tho imminent peril of his situation, roso slowly to his feet, and kicked the stool upon which he had been seated into the fire. Turning short upon StofTcl, he bent down until he thrust his nose almost in his face, and quietly remarked : "What 1 have said, I now repeat. You had better not meddle witli the affairs of Hyder Van Kloften. sou have picked up one dead body, I hear, in the river there's room for another do vou understand ?" Nover before was the stout-hearted Stofiel so completely aghast, but the eyes of Nieuw Amsterdam were upon him, and he uctcrmin cd to strike one more vigorous blow for his fame. "Donder and blitzen!" exclaimed he, in a tone whereat oven himself was great' ly amazed, and which ho hoped might intim idate his adversay, although he began strong' ly to suspect that he was not liable to sudden fits of panic. " Donder and blitzen ! You speak boldly for the robber perhaps you have seen himl" " I have," was the laconic reply. "And know himl" " I do." Stofiel casta suspicious glance in his face, and asked, with a considerable abatement in the forco of his voice, " what manner of man he wasl" For some moments the stranger seemed in doubt ; but at length stretching himself to his full height, and raising his slouched hat from his head, he answered: " I am told there is a strong resemblance between Hyder and myself." Stofiel drew back several steps, and a deep silence reigned in the council chamber, whilo tho stranger proceeded to fumble in his pocket, from which he finally drew a folded paper. Slowly unfolding this he displaced a sheet closely written with Dutch characters, and bearing at tho bottom the flaunting sig nature of Klaas Van Hig. " Here," continued ho in a tono of stern deliberation, at thu same time crossing the room and placing his back against the door, to cut of all retreat " here is a proclamation offering a reward of ono hundred and fifty guilders for tho delivery of tho person of that notorious robber, Ilyder Van Kloften, in to the hands of the authorities of Nicuw Am sterdam. It is signed by " Klaas Van Hig." Is that your signature 1 demanded he, turn ing to that worthy without hesitation. The prudent Klaas felt that his wisdom had been at fault for once ; but repentance came too late, and thero was something in the manner of his interrogator that shut out all equivocation, so he took the paper, closely inspocted it for a moment, until it was im possible longer to delay his answer, and then, returning it to the stranger summoned courage for the effort to return a mild assent. "And are not these," continuod ho in the samo deliberate tono, and looking round upon the paralyzed counsellors, "the respect able magistrates of Nieuw Amsterdam!" Again Klaas bowed his head in assent. " 'Tis well," said tho stranger. " I am Hyder Van Kloften. Here he is. I demand tho reward and to you I look for payment," added he, fixing unon the prudent Van Hig an eye that made his very flesh creep. Here was a capturo of tho bandit with a vengeance; and never was a deliberative body so completely taken aback by the ful filment of its own projects. A deep groan burst from the assembled fathers ; several started involuntarily to their feet, and ono or

two cautiously stole off to tho dark corners of the room, while Klaas, with lus usual tore thought, seeing that there was little aid to bo gained from his fellow-citizens, with great magnanimity threw himself upon tho divine protection, and falling upon his knees, straightway travelled with marvellous celeri ty through all the intricacies of a Low Dutch prayer. Prayers however, at that timo, were not the coin that the freebooter required; and a vigorous application of his toe brought tne devotions or lus victim to a premature rnrtrln!nn nnrl tthivtAfl him ! mill and not a little unseemly. Klaas, however, on occasions, was gifted with a vast supply of that moral courago generally designated by tho ancients under the namo of vis inerfitc ; nd faithful to his purse, submitted to several hearty thwacks across the shoulders, and an equal number of shakings that nearly suffo cated him, before he drew it forth. Uut at last it came a plethoric littlo bag of leather, with a bottlo belly, crammed to bursting, and tightly secured at the neck with a cravat of greasy leather. " fray, don t troublo yourself," said ily der, seeing him preparing to unloose tho string; and removing the bag with gontle violcnco from the hand that clutched it, tho brigand quietly deposited it in lus own pocket " lor Tuyfcll" exclaimed Klaas, car ried far beyond his usual mild forbearance at this cool appropriation of his funds, "that bag contains a thousand guilders I" "so much tho better," replied Ilyder. As I shall frequently deliver myself up to the authorities, 1 take it as payment in ad vance of the rewards which they doubtless intend to offer hereafter. So much for that and now for the taxes," exclaimed he fiercely; and dashing his hat to tho floor he drew a pistol cocked it with a dreadful double click that echoed tearfully round the room and ran his cyo savagely over the wholo assembly, as if selecting a victim. " That hat, said he, pointing to it with his pistol, "must bo filled ay, to tho brim and tho man that is last shall have the contents of this for a receipt," said he, tapping the band of tho weapon. The words acted liko magic. Never was legal or illegal process for tho payment of money so rapid m its operation. IN ever had the plethoric sages of Nieuw Amsterdam displayed such feits of agility; and never. since thcdaysofDaiiae, had thero been such a shower of gold. 1 hose were hard money times, and not one minute had elapsed before the wish so politely hinted by tho brigand had been complied with. Advancing, and raising the hat, ho bowed courteously to the assembly, and said : "wormy Aiynhccrs, l thank ye tor your liberality ; and as any backwardness to com ply with my reasonable request, has eviden tly arisen from inability rather than disinclin ation, I shall omit the unnccssary form of my promised receipt the rather, as it would bo impossible for mo to decide which of the three last who have made their deposites is entitled toil, and neither appears anxious to tlaim it." 1 hen advancing to Stofiel Stein uacK, nc iook mm coruiany uy the nose and shaking it heartily not omitting a cor responding favor in another quarter, which deposited the discomfited hero against the wall at the opposite side of the room he civilly wished him a pleasant evening, nt the same time stating that ho would no longer intrude upon the meeting; and exhorting them by all means to adopt rigorous measures to put a stop to all pillering ; and above all to shake the stern arm of the law over all island marauders. As ho approached the door, however, ho turned abruptly about ; and addressing them in a tone that mado them quake, forbade any to quit the builbing for fifteen minutes "or else!" here he shook lus pistol in manner sufficiently expressive. In another moment, he had disappeared in the dark ness and then tho plash of an oar was soon heard in the river, even above the waitings ot the storm. For the timo prescribed, the dignitaries o that worthy city sat as if spell-bound ; but no sooner had it expired, than the room was deserted ; and in fifteen minutes more the town was in uproar. The men swore round ly, the women screamed, the dogs barked, tho bells rang, and several who still retained their presence of mind, retreated to the fort; and having double-shotted tho guns, poured a volley directly into the heart of the cabba ges of Communipaw, an unoflending little Dutch settlement on the opposite side of the Hudson. The brigand, however, being on the river on the oppositoside of the town, despite the cannonading of Communipaw, and the lashing oi tne storm, readied Ins home in safety ; and tho spirit of the Colony, StofTcl Stcinbach and all, being completely broken by this last unheard-of feat of audacity. Hyder continued to reign, so long as he chose to make his abode in these parts, the undisturbed monarch ol the waters ot Nicuw Amsterdam. USEFUL HINTS. Brittania ware should be first rubbed gen tly with a woolen cloth and swrct oil ; and then washed in warm suds, and rubbed with soft leather and whiting. Thus it will retain its beauty to the last. New iron should be gradually heated a ' first ; after it has become inured to thu hca t it is not likely to crack. It is a good plan to put earthen ware into cold water, and let it heat gradually until it boils then cool again. Drown earthen ware, in particular, may be toughened in this way. A handful of rye or wheat bran, put in while it is boiling, will preserve the glazing, so that it will not bo destroyed by acid oi salt. The oftcner carpets are shaken, the lon ger they will wear ; the dirt that collects under them wears out the threads. If you wish to preserve fine teeth, always clean them thoroughly after your last meal at night. Woollens should be washed in very hot suds, and not rinsed. Luke warm water shrinks them. Do not wrap knives and forks in woollens, wrap them in strong paper. Steel is injured by lying in woollen. 'I'll bo hanged ifl do," as the butcher said when Satan tempted him to steal a sheep. 4 T 1VE ANU I.ET LIVK."

Sherman's llreast Ointment, If applied properly and indue lime, will cure the most painful cases of swelled breasts, and prevent the for mation of abscesses Even where the swelling has pointed and shown everv appearance of breaking, this ointment has entirely dispelled it, and restored the parts to a healthy condition. In applying it, a smooth and soft covering to the breast should bo made of soft leather, or fine compact bnin, with a hole in the cen tre to admit the niple. When so made, put a coating of the ointment over the inner surface and apply it closely and smoothly over the whole breast, leaving the nipple protruding through the hole, so that the child can nurse, which it should do as long as the mother can bear it. Care should be taken to have the breast drawn by the child or otherwise, so as to pre vent an accumulation of milk. Whenever the plas ter gets rinkled, and thereby uncomfortable, a newonu should be applied, and constantly worn until a cure is affected. Ii is sometimes necessary to slit the sides so they will conform to the shape oi the breast, and cover it closely. .Uk for Sherman's breast ointment, and see that his signature litis, Sherman, M.

IMPOIITAXT TO MOTHERS & YOUNG KUMAl.ES. Docts. Reynolds &Pamei.ei's celebrated PILLS, or HEALTH RESTORATIVE for complaints peculiarity incident to the Female Sex. This article is now brought before the public, under sanction of the strongest testimony, from those who have alike used it, and also witnessed its unequalled jiowcrs, in the removal of Female obstructions of the most aggravated and desperate character. These testimonials are not brought from tho ignorant and illiterate hut from Physicians and oilier Scientific Persons, who have tested its great virtues, and now recommend it in their practice and Imd toit the sanc tion of their names. Itis not intended as many medi cines generally arc for all tho varieties of disease, which it is thelot to sutUr under. But it is intended, siiniilv for one class of complaints, and those only re lating to one sex. These being of rather a delicate na ture, there would be more than an ordulary degree of diffidence in coming with this article before the public were it not the fact that thousands are continually passing from the stage of action, victims to disense, which this medicine has never failed to prevent or cure Such has been the provision of Nature, that nearly all tho complaints in Females, nrc connected in some degree, with the habits allied to ihcir sex. And many can bear witness, where a mere cold nt a par- ... i i I I ..I 1 . .L I J . r Iicuiar oiage, lias iriHiuccii im-iits, nun uie iiniui oi Science and Skill, never has been ahle to dispel or alleviate. At first, Ihe irregularity and suppression of the natural habits produces no very alarming symp toms, and is treated generally with neglect. And proper attention is procrastiaatrd until the hollow eye, sallow complexion and great bodily debility indicate that cither ranid conumntion. or some oilier fatal disease has fastened its resistless grasp on the sufferer which soon terminates existence, ny n lingering but certain death. For complaints inevitably productive of such results thisiuvaluableincdicincis now brought before the public. It invariably removes obstructions nnd regulates a too profuse menstruraiion, nnd cures liy its unequalled qualities, an the variety oi arrange ment connected with the Fcmalo habit. The eminent and distinguished Docl. J. Morrison, who has prac tised medicine nt Oneida, N, York, with tho most sig nal sucess for ".'0 years, says "!t is the best medicine now in use.
