THE INDIAN TRAIL- 'The Indians have attacked Mr. Stuart's house, burnt it, and cairied his family into capticity !' wero tho first woids of a breath less woodman, as ho lushed into thu block house of a village in western New York, dur ing ono of thu eaily border wars. 'Up, up a dozen men should havo been on tlio trail two hours ago.' ' God heln us!' said one of tho croup, a bold frank forester, and wilh a facu whiter than ashes, as he leaned against tho wall gasning for breath. Every eye was turned on him with sympathy, for he and Mr.Stuart's only daughter, a lovely girl ol seventeen were lo be married in a low days. Tho bereaved father was universally rc snccted. Ho was a man of great benevolence of heart, and of some property and resided on a mill seat ho owned about two miles from tho vilhiL'o. His fatnilv consisted of bis el dest daughter and three children. He had been from home, so the runner said, when Ills llDUSU WUS .iltncU'. .1, hot I. ...I .r.;ul. Lors any intimation oftho catastrophe until the light of tho burning tenements awakened tho suspicions' of n settler, who was a mile nearer the village titan Mr. tstuarl, nnu who proceeded towards the flames, found the house and mills in rums, and lecogni.ed thu feet of female nnd children on the trail of the Indi ans. He hurried instantly to the foil, and is thu individual who . now stood breathlessly narrating tho events which we m fower words have detailed. Thu alarm spread through ihu village as a fire spreads in a swamp after a drought ; and before the speaker had finished his slor the little block house was filled with eager and sympathizing faces. Several of the hi ll ibitants had brought their lilies, and others now hurried hoinu lo arm themselves. The young men of the settlement gathered to a man. around llenrv Leper, tho betrothed husband of Marv Stuart; and though few words wero spoken, the earnest grasp of iho hand, and the accompanying looks, assured him that his fi lends keenly felt for him, and wero ready lo fellow him to the world's end. That paily was about to set forth, when a man was seen hurriedly running up Ihe road from 1 1 ics direction of lite desolated home.' ' It is Mr. Stuart?' said one of the oldest oflho group, 'stand back and let him .come, in.' The men parlcd right and left fiom the doorway, and immediately tlio father entered the neighbors bowed respectfully lo him as ho passed. Ho scarcely relumed their sal utation, but advancing directly to his inten ded son-in-law, they mutually fell into each other's arms. Tho spectalor's not wishing to intrude on the privacy of their grief, turn ed their faces away with that instinctive del icacy which is nowhere to be found more of ten than among those who aro thought to be rude bordorcis ; but they heard sobs and thoy know that tho heart of tho usually col lecicd Mr. Stuart must be fearfully agitated. My friends,' said ho, at length, 'this is kind, I see you know my loss, and aro ready lo march with me 1 God bless you!' Ho could say no more, for he was choked willi emotion. 'Slay bark, father,' said young Leper, us ing for tho fust timo a namo which in that moment of desolation carried sweet comfort to the parent's heart, 'you cannot bear the fatigues as well as me death only will pre vent us from bringing back Mary.' 1 1 know it 1 know it, my son but I cannot slay bore in suspense. No, I will go with you, I have to-day tlio strcnglh of a dozen men 1' The fathers' who wero there nodded in as sented nothing further was said, but imme diately tho parly as if by one impulse sot forth." Thero was no difficulty in finding tho trail oftho Indians, along which tho pursuers ad vanced wilh a speed incredible lo those un used lo forest life, and tlio result of long and severe discipline. Hut rapid as their march was, hour after hour elapsed without any signs of savages, though ovidenco that thoy passed tho roulo awhile before Was continu ally met. The sun roso high ahovo jdio heavens until ho stood ahovo tho tree (taps, then ho began slowly lo decline, and at length his slant beams could scarcely punelrato the forest ; yet thero was no appearance of the Indians, and ihe hearts of tliu pursuers began to WJiond. Already the opinion was grow- i iug general that a further advance was use less, for thu hotiudories of the settler's dis- trict liatl lung been passed ; tliey were in thu very heart uTtlio savages s cuitnlry ; tintl by lliis limo tlio lmlians bad probably readi ed ibeir village. Yet when tho older men would venture to suggest it return, looked M the father or nt the intended son-in-law, young Leper, they could not niter tho word that would carry despair to t vo almost break ing hearts, nnd so thu march was continued, lint night drew on, and one of tho elders spoke : ' Thero seems lo bo no hope,' ho said, stopping and resting his riflo on tho ground, and wo arc far from our families. What would become of the village if attacked in our absence V ' This was a question that wcnl lo every heart, and by one consent the parly slopped and many, especially oftho older ones, look a slop or two involuntary boniuwards. The father and young Leper looked at each oth er in mule despair. ' You are light, .Tonkin,' said tho young man at longth. 'It is selfish in us to lead you so far from homo on' and hero fur an instant lie choked 'on perhaps a fruitless errand. Go back , we thank you for having come so far. Hut as forme, my way liesljurious to hm coinniorci.il interest for him to ahead, even if it leads into tho very heart of! absent himself again from tho field of his an Indian village. ' And I will follow von !' And I !' cx- claimed a dozen voices; for daring, in mo- j moots like these, carries tho day against cool-' er counsels, and thu young to a man, stirangi to Leper's side. Mis.s Thompson was detained as a si ive, and Even the old men were affected hy the I closely confined, until thu report of her utt contagion. They were torn by confiicling common beauty having reached thu emper e notions, now thinking of their wives ti Del or, Midi Mahomed, sho was, by his orders, Itlllo ones behind, and now reminded of the stiflering captives before. They slill fluc tuated, when one of the young men exclaim ed in a low voice 1 See ! there thoy aro !' and ns ho spoke js pointed lo a thin column of light assent! ing in tho twilight above the tree tops, fiom the bottom of tho valley lying immediately behind them. ' On then, on,' said Jenkins, now the first lo move ahead , 'but silently, for thu slight est noiso will ruin our hopes.' Oh, how iho father's heart thrilled at llicse words ! The evident bulief of his neighbors in tho uselessness of fnither pursuit, had wrung his heat t and with Leper ho had re solved lo go unaided, though meantime he watched wilh intense anxiety tho proceedings of the counsels, for ho knew that two men, or oven a dozen, would probably bo insufficient to rescue ihe captive. Hut when his eyes J this woiideiful fated lady, when he saw her caught the distant light, hope rushed over his in Spain, was dressed in tho Moorish cos heart. Willi the next, minute he was fore- liime ; and sliango as it appears, she seem most in the lino of pursuers, nppaicnlly thu ! ed in all respects to have adopted tho taste coolest and most cautious of nil. j of her new country in preference lo those of Willi a noiseless Iread the borderers pro- Christendom, for she afterwards returned lo ceeded until they weio within a few yards' Morocco, and there ended her days.

IIo and Jenkins weio now by common consent looked on its the leaders of thu paily. Ho paused to count the group. ' Twenty five in all,' he said, in a low whisper. 'Wo can take oil' a third at least wilh one fire, and then rush on thorn, and ho looked to Jenkins, who nodded approving- iy. In huriied whispering ihe pi, in of attack was regulated, each having an Indian assign ed lo bis rill fining mi "i"'i wiisiicH- ry l,.-art trembled least the accidental crack- hug ol a twig or n tone spoken unadvisedly above a whisper should attract too attention nf llio snvniiMS. SitilcIfMilv. before nil u ny. ur- I ranged, one of llieni sprung to Ins leet, and looked suspiciously iu tho direction of our little paity. At tho same instant another sprung towards the prisoners, and with eyes fixed on the thicket wbeio the pursuers lay, held Ins tomahawk above the startled gill, as if to strike tho instant any demonstration of hostility should appear. 1 lie children clung to tlietr sisler s side with stifled cries. Tho moment was criti cal ; if the proximity of thu pursuers was suspected, their discovery would no tlio re- result. To wait until each man had his vie tim assigned him, might prove ruinous ; to fire prematurely might bo equally so. Hut Leper forgol every consideration iu thu pot il of Mary, and almost at the instant when llio occurrences we havo related weio taking place, took aim at the savage standing over his betrothed, and fired. The Indijn fell dead. Immediately a yell rang through the for est tho savages leaped to their arm, a few dashed into (lie thicket, others rushed on the piisoners, the most sngitcious lulrotilini' bo. hind trees. Hut on that whoip a dozen rifles rang on the air, and hall score ol Iho assailed fell lo the earth, while the borderers, break ing liom thu thicket, with upliltod toma hawks, came to the rescue. A wild hand-to hand conflict ensued, in which nothing coul bo seen except the figures of the combatants, rolling together among llio whirling leaves ; nothing beard but tho angry shouts, and the groans of (no wounded and dying. In a lew minutes, the borderers wero victorious. Leper had been tho jrst to enter tho field The instant iic fired, flinging down his rifle, lie loaped from his hiding place and rushed to Mary's side, thinking only of her safely. It was well lie was prompt. Two stal wart savages dashed tit hor with swinging tomahawk but tho knifo of Leper found the heart of one, nnd tho olhei fell stunned by a blow from the but end of his father's lille, who followed his intended son-in-law a step ol two behind. A second's del'y would have been loo tale. Fortunately nono of thu assailants wero killed, though sevoral wero seriously wound ed. Thu suddenness of thu altaek may ac count for tho comparative immunity which, tliey enjoyeti.

Mr. Clarke told mo the following story : That when lie was nt Alicnnt a galley arrived, which had just escaped Iroui Ttmcicrs, with tho first or favorite wife of Midi Mahomed, tho Into emperor of Morocco, who had late ly been assassinated by his rebellious son, Mali Ismacl. This lady who, with her at tendants, was seeking a refuge in Spain, was originally Miss Thompson, of Cork, nnd when on her passage from that city lo Cadi, on n matrimonial expedition, had been cap lured by a Moorish corsair, and made a slave Her first intended bridegroom had been a Mf. Shee, an Irish merchant, settled at Ca di,, who, during a visit which he had made lo his nalivo rotinlry, had become acquaint ed with and attached to Miss Thompson, who possessed great charms? but as some impediments existed as lo their immediate union, they parted, having first plighted iheir troth; and with the understanding that she should join him tit C;i)i,, as it would he in spectilations. Tlio lady, in fulfilment of her promise, s ulci! to join her future husband ; but as just narrated, her destiny was changed by the capture of tho vessel she was in, by a corsair, which carried her into Fey. Here removed to the imperial palace, and every inducement was uuiu out to llio emperor s desiio of making her his wife. Whether it was by persuasion, or from tho conviction that her fatejjwns irrevocably decided, her various scruples were overromo, and shu be came the wife of Mull Mahomed, and sub sequently tho mother of two sons, who bore the names, the eldest of Midi Ismaul, an J the younger of Midi Mahomed. She was over the most favored of her impeiial husband's wives, for ho had manv besides : and thu number must havo been greal, as I have heard both from Mr Claiko and Mr. Romans. wno was ai otio tune established as a liter' chant in Morocco, the emperor Midi Ma homed actually formed a regiment, compos ed entirely of his own sons, to the number of five bundled and twesity-llnee, the most of ihetn being blacks. .Mr. Clarke says, that Tin: visible works of God speak lo us with a commanding eloquence. The sun, tho fountain of life and heart of 1 1 in win Id, that bright leader of the armies of heaven, enthroned in glorious majesty ; the moon shining with a bistro borrowed from its beams the slats glittering by night in the clear fir maments ; the air giving breath to all things ill it live and move ; thu interchange of light and darkness ; ihe course of tho year, and the sweet vicissitude of seasons ; tho rain and thu dew descending from nbo.e, and tho r,;,r.,t,,c0i-iiw. , ,i. ,...,! i... ,i t... 1)Cnt.,)v ,,m ,s of lM()sl ', ,, ...

a ghnious circle ; the awful voice of thunder, and the piercing power of lightning ; tho great and wide sea, with its innumerable in- Iftibitanls; all these instruct us in tho mvs turies of faith and the duties of morality. Our E.iii.v Companions. How manv of llio companions of early youth do we find accompanying us in tho after days of life's journey. Of those who seemed so linked wilh our first joys and sorrowj as-to havo be cumu a part ol our existence, some riso above, and some sink below tlio course wo aro pur suing, and if seen, aro scarcely noticed. Others try the desperate adventure of dis tant climates, and bankrupt in hopes and health, are never again heard of. Willi some, folly does llio work of time ; and a few per haps, aro recognized among those who sig nalize themselves in tho feverish strife of pol itics, or aro commemorated as having fallen in sniuo brilliant achievement. We diverge like lines drawn from the same point, pursu ing similar directions, but seldom reuniting. Our permanent connections are generally formed at a later period, yet the heart slill feels something wanting, and as wo look around fur it in vain, the happiness in our fit st affections is magnified by being seen through tho purer atmosphere which the morning caress of innocence has cast around him. This may bo common-place, hut our feelings are all so ; it is only in their lutenso- iilss or directions that wo diller. Rn.Mr.Miiuit tiir Viir.i:i,. Let our rich men remember that their own offspring may sometimes bo poor. History tells us of the ancient conqueror, who, having harnessed several kings to his tiiumphal chariot, noticed one of them frequently look back, and nar rowly watching the wheel. Tho conqueror asked him why ho did so. " I was thinking," said lie, "how quick iho top of that wheel would come down into tlio dust, nnd the part now down would bo on tho top." Tho con queror unharnessed linn. Rich men ! remem ber tho wheel. Honor, honesty, nnd industry, ii llio best capital that a man can havo to begin life with. If ho have principles of honor, ho (II ilitfMt'o Iwi nictinWnil If lift linvn 1 1 rt n ,u tvi, ll0 crojituj, ( m ma industry, ho will never lack hMut- ,lis ful tlini. ihu means of Thu best indication of our mind being at THE SIMUIT OF CHRISTIANITY. What are tho practical lessons which this subject should leach us all ; You know how Iho human character is formed, nnd how the faults and vices which degrade it, and which afflict tho world, aro generated. Pity their unhappy victims ; treat them with mercy ; pour, il it be possible, the light of knowledge on iheir minds, and infuse, by obliging llieni to witness its excellence in your own disposi tion, tho love of goodness in their hearts. In Iho family and in the world, bo what your views of philosophy and religion ought to make you forbearing, geneious, just j the intrepid defender of ethers' rights; tho uni form observer of your own duties ; the mas ter of yourself, the servant of all. Endeavor at all seasons and by all means lo diffuse the blessings of knowledge ; deem no labor too protracted or to severe, which may terminate in tho removal of an eiror. Lei no calumny or invective excite in you a spirit of resent ment, or force from your lips a harsh expres sion. Mako thosu whom you strive lo en lighten feel that yon wish them lo embrace your views, only that they may bo inspired with tho same cheerful, amiable and benig nant spirit of which your heart is full; re joice in the good that is ; live but lo labor to inrruase it ; behevu that every event is so arranged by Infinite Wisdum and Almighty Power, as to perform its necessary measure in securing iu ultimate and universal lii uniph. This is Iruo philosophy : ihis is gen uine Christianity : this is the way to live hap piest, lo die happiest, and lo prepare best for glory, honor and immortality. THE KINDNESS OF GOD. As wo fear the judgment, so should wo iiilore Iho law and goodness of hca.cn. and let the tiolden chains of divine mercy tie us lo a noble prosecution of our duly, and the interest of religion. Fear is stronger than death, and law is more prevalent than fear. and kindness is tho greatest endearment of love, and yet to an ingenious mind, gratitude is greater than all these, and obliges lo sol oinn duly when lovo fails, and fear is dull and inactive, and death itself is despised. Mer cy is like a rainbow, which God sets in the clouds to remember mankind ; it shines hero as long as it is not hindered ; but wo must never look for it after it is night, and it shines not in the other world. If we refuse mercy here, we shall havo justice in all eternity. Man's Laiiou a Rlcssixg. God hath sent no greater evil into the world, than that " in ihu sweat of our brows we shall eat our breath;" and in the difficulty and agony, in the sorrows and contention of our souls, we shall " work put our own salvation." Bot see how in thu first of these God bath out done his own anger, and defeated the put po ses of his wralh, by the inundation of his I"""".' 'V l.lwv iml tuv.iil nf nnr brows is so lar from being a curse, that with out it our very bread would not be so great a blessing. If it wero not for labor 'men neither eould cat so much nor relish so pleasantly, nor sleep so soundly, nor be so healthy or useful, so strong or so patient, so I noble or so unleiiipted. And as God hath j made us beholden to labor lor Iho purchase , of many good things, so iho thing itself owes to labor many degrees of its wotihand value. , And, therefore, I need not reckon, that lie I sides these advantages, the mercies of God I havo found out proper afftf natural remedies for labor nights to cure tho sweat of the dav j sleep to ease our watchfulness rest to nl i leviato our burdens and days of religion lo procure our rest ; and things aro so oidered, that labor is become a duty, and an act ol many viitues, nnd is so apt to turn into a sin I as Ms contrary; and is therefuro necessary, not because wiuneed it fur making provisions for our life, but even lo raise the labor of our rest ; there being no greater tediousness of spirit in the world than want of employment, and an inactive life : and tho lazy mail is not only unprofitable, but also accursed, and ho groans under the load of his limo ; which yet passes over ihu active man, light as a dream or the feathers of a tird ; while the unem ployed is n disease, and like a long sleepless night to himself, and a load unto his country.
