For want of other homes, notwithstanding tin; great d.niL'er and distress, muny of the inhahitanls of Iili, ihelhtown and its vicinity did not lemove. Ilesides this, mid what ad ded verv much to thocal. unities nut-people endured, llieto were not a few of the citizens who had cause In four thn Dritish, and who were piotecled hv ihem during the continu ance nf the war. These Toiies, or refugees, is thev were then called, were ihe spies and guides of the eueniv, and put him in posses sion of all the infill million he desiied, hv which his fnrageis could moro ceilaiuly 0I1 tain their supplios, and the most zealous and devoted on llio Ameiiean side might he sin gled out as the ob jects of vengeance and per secution. And it was always liid to their charge that the 'ev. Air. Caldwell, ihe pious mil pitiiolic pistor of tho Pieshvleiiin church in I'liz iliellitown, and his aiiiiahle wife, were singled mil and shot In sirnggling Millish soldieis. 'I'his laniented clergvman was foteiiiost aniong his flock, in ilenoiini'iiig the aihilrary mcasiiies of the liiili.li (,'nv eriimenl, anil in siin ing iii the zeal and p it liulisni of (ho Ameiic.'ins in defence nf their liberty. II ul his death did nnl de,iv ihe thirst for vengeanrn which hid been cv;ited in tho lieart of tho enemy.

And thu result was- manv a gallant sliui-ijlo hulivee.i .small p-)t tics fmni the opposing ranks, wlnrh nol falling uithi,, the diifl nflho histniian's design, liavo remained iinrecorded, and sur vivo only in the recollection of n. few octo genarians, and in the dininier liaditionaiy keeping of the posteiily nf those stout heails that lived in " u lime that tried men's souls." Almost all iibh) to ):ir arms, old mid ynung, were, snnin time or other, eiiher as officers or privates, pai Inkers in ihe contest. Wo would tint it were in our power lo glean out from tho fast-fading reoieiuhintices of tho older part of New .leisey ; f,.w morn precious sheaves liko tho ono "wo have now gathered.

" His old fashioned collage, which is sltll slatidiug, and still thedoiiiiril of his poslerity, was puily of stone, iu:d paitly of woollen frame wink. As you pass along one of the loads leading through Lyons' l 11 ms, as love ly and well tilled a district as may ho found in the whole cotinlry, ahniiiuling in smiling mansions and plenteous crops; and when urn reach the lop of tho hill on which stands tho Mono school house, a lane or cioss road diverges to your lighl, at light anglejlo tho main road. This leads yon tlnoiigh a pretty valley, the bottom of which is washed hy 11 clear and cheeiful slieam of pun; waler. There, a few bundled yards from tho school house, is the cottage, through tin; garden of whirh the stream runs. Nature has done so much for this sweet, ipttet, poetic place, tint lliirlniid ofart, whii h has not been wholly idle, is not needed to make it a most delight I11I spnl. We must let our imagination he dock the walks anil set oil' tin; Imnleis with Mowers and evergreens, while we follow on tho thread of our story. Doubtless in this day of peace and prosperity, much limo h is been found for improvement and ornament, which thn iPsisteis between lTTfi and ITS-') alliirded no leisure to attend In. .Mr. Meek er was busy through the war and in the bu siness of the war. Ho di lnol,ho' ever,henng to the lank nnd file ; neither was In a com missioned officer. Yel Imm ibis honorable and trusty service in which he was engaged, it ens proper for him tn mount a piirof ep iiilelles nud to lie provided w ilb a suil of uniform. .Such was his chaiaclei fur ptow- ess I self-command, that ho was piinci- pally chosen lo hear iinpoilnnl coinmiiuii'a I tons liom one diisinu nf (Its . A met ican army tn annllier. lluoiigh sections of the country in possession of the enemy's lines. Sometimes ho wfiubl hi; seen hounding .along thioii'jh the counltv on his gallaet cnniser.in tho dress nf a colonel ; nl ntbeis, when lln; srivico inpiired it, ho would ie. sumo tho pi tin firiuei's gnb, Uv those means ho scaped deiectiun nud captuie, while many of hi. less fortunate neigblinis wen; found in their own houses, in iniln try apparel, and consigned fieipiently fur eai is together lo tie old sugar hoi.se in the cilv of New York, wlnrh was the 15iiti.li g ml' for Ameiiean piisoners. He iuv.iri ihlv took tho precaution, on his visits home, of lea ving his tegimeiiial suits several miles up in the inteiior, iit the house of some iicipiainlance or other ; or else in the can; of ,1 lumber nfli-' rerun tegular duly. Tins il was lint par lies of tho enemv. loiming about ihiongh the neighboihood often called jit hi. house and p 11 took nf the ho. pit iliiies, which tt had been folly tn deny them, of a humble, un pretending countrymen, as they vainly sup posed, who gave himself no concern" iilioul politics, wtir or libei ty. It is r'dited of him that on one occasion, some fifteen or twenty linglish officers, who had been out on a frolic, came 1 iding up, and' showing some disposition to alijht, were verv kindly and submissively welcomed end invi ted in by Mr. Meeker, who ordeied the wo man, a servant I I1.1t belonged to him, to nie parc dinner for the whole paity, while he very ofllciouslv led their horses lo the stable, and supplied tbeni wilh II iv. lie then came in and sot out his brandy, which soon flowed freely mound and put them in the licit hu mor. Knowing th it they would pioh.ihlv , slay .soveiarhiiius, and that it would be two, j or three, nt least, before the dinner would he iliMily ; afier expressing much 1 egret at the necessity he was under of leaving them, he I begged that they would excuse his absence I liuni tbeni nubile, ns his gi .indniolher lav very ill, and wus not likely to live, iiml ,',. Iliad been about stilling In see her, perhaps 1 for Ihe last time, just as lliey anived. They 1 cendnlod with him most sincerely, and tolil him hy nil means to go, and not suffer them lo detain him. He uiouiited his hmse, and galloped nfl'three of four miles, and soon galh eied a patly of the neighbors. iy hW lime I lln I co il ofliceis were in the midst nfihelr comfortablo entei laininent, Willi appetites qnito whetted up with thn farmers substitute for ch imp igne, and e.xcli ingin tho joyous , s.ilutntioiis of wit and i.iilloiy. I There was living at jjjno of tho neighhor ing hoti.es a jirit'ilrsfd chaiactur, an old ne gro woman, named Jane. Sim was huth a 1 1:.? .

As was natural, she did not feel an in- teiesl in the uelfite of tint side among llio inenibeis of which were those who kept her in bondage. Our readers, however, are not lustily to infer that the ch meters of slave and lory were identical, for on an adjoining farm was a brother slave called Frank, who pirlnuk nf all tho enthusiasm of tho most zealous Whig. Frank would frequently ho seen in the aiiiro of an Ameiiean soldier, on tho back of his plough nag, brandishing his trusty blade, and joining in a be.uiv cheer for tho independence of his master's couiilrv and his own. J.ino often 1 allied him 'for ii fool of a niggn,' and asked him hoiv much better he, would ho off snpposo the llrilish should ho be Hon. ' Let 'em cul their own tin 0 its if they please it's none nf ynur liusi ness, I'm sure you'll only ho a'slave, lol the light ciiiiio nut as it will. It was luck fnrthejnllv messmates in Jo. slab .Meckel's collage, that old Jane h ipp"n- ed lo see them when they stopped llieie. Wondering how a parcel of linglishiiien should tarrv so Inng al llio liouso of n man whom slit! kni) in ho so staunch a paitisun of llio opposiio side, she sauntered down the I, and, dropping into the kitchen, w.is soon informed of his warm hospitality, and thenprelondeil excuse for his absence, by the cook, who was 0110 of her own color. J me knew very well there was no lime In bo Inst.

Jnsinli Meeker by ibis tiinu has got his gang urn I him, and it's a vvnnder if you're not all butchered hero on tho spot. Il'stinio j 011 were scunnering for your lives.' This unexpected alarm broke up tho mess in quiio short order, or rallier disorder. Scampnr they did.

Soon afiei wards, there slowly approached a Lord richly nppuiollod, who horn embla zoned upon his doublet in armorial guise, a shield with two forks sable, with this device, ' IWiltlt mrr.'' On his arm leaned ;i female slid young, whose lovely r.iiiiiietnnco was covcied with a mortal paleness, while eight pages followed, bending beneath tho weight of four heavy enflors tilled with gold.
