Think of thee, nyc, who could forget, Or cease to rcmemter unless with rceret i Who prove so ungrateful, so falso or untrue, At fail to remember the fond, last adieu. Though oceans between us in fury may roll, Still, true to its shrine, bends in homage the soul, And pours it devotion unceasinnly true, And ne'er will forget tho fond, last adieu. Thy virtue, thine Image, thy fairy-tike form, Be the rare of a Heaven to shield from all storm Nor withering blasts, nor envy untruo Shall wash from my heart thy fondest adieu. Then a sigh for thy sorrow, a kiss for ihy care, Jfor while I've a heart, thine image is there, And while IVo a being, still fond nnd still true I'll ever remember the last, last adieu. And when by raging storms I'm driven Acrow life's troubled sea, When foaminf billows threaten death I'll ever think of thee. Or when on Afrtc's burning sands A scorching sun I rice, And Oh I through every ill of life, I'll fondly think of thee. But when by fortune's golden hands. From all these ilia I'm free, Oh I censure not, if seldom I Should ever think of thee. When ruby lips invite to kiss, And tempting, pout at me, " Forgive, dear Caroline, it I forget The love I've vowed to thee. Cato. from the LaJies' National Magazine, lor August. THE YOUNG REBEL.

Both the son nnd wife looked up at these words. Tho old lady ceased knitting and gated enquiringly at her hoy, and it was evi dent, from the expression of her face, that patriotism and motherly utTection wero at varienco in her bosom. Tho son however,, ficr encountering his fiiher's eye for a mo-j ment, turned confusedly away. Tho old man's brow darkened, and he said warmly, ' David, David, why do you linger about tho village when your country needs your services so much? why son, 1 am ashamed of you !

At length he slopped and looked in .( tl.n -I i . ...... ,i wiiiuuws 01 a urm-nouse, hall hid between clustering trees. This was the res idenco of Mary Bunker, tho mistress of his lieait; the lights showed that tho family had not retired, and ho resolved to nav her a uc.oro HIS aeparturo.

The next day ho left the neighborhood of his father's house, armed with a muskot nndl mounted on a sturdy horso. Hit destination was the American camp, then far lo tho! B northwind; but us tho intervening country was filled with the enemy, ho kuntv tlierti would bo considerable nddress required to effect his purpose. Before his depaiture, lie saw a few of his uld playmates, who promis ed to fullow him as soon its possible. Night found him near a lonely farm-house to which he proceeded boldly in pursuit nl a lodging. At first tho occupant received liiin coldly, but n chanco expression convincing Divid that his host was a tnrv, lie directed the same political creed and whs Immediately warmly welcomed. Tho royalist produced his cider alicr supper, and insisted that David should join him in his potations ; this the young man did, taking caro, however, not to Indulge too freely', whilo tho farmer, ovcljny cd to find what ho supposed a new recruit for his parly, drank without stint and became more and more communicative. To his horror, David soon learned that n party of ......I:... I i i... at. . iimi t,.. .t itij.it, sis, ,uu n itiiijur tv iison, cuicuratcu for his loryism nnd ruthlcssness. were to start early tho ensuing day, on nn expedition to seize nnd hang tho two Bunkers, who had made themselves particularly obnoxious lo the royalist leaders. David knew enouch of this parttzan warfare to bo assured that no mercy would bo shown his friends ; lie also knew enough of tho character of tho Major to suspect that some strong personal motive had led to the planning of so distant an ex pedition, when thoro wero othcis us invilinc nearer home. He accordingly set himself to discover Irom Ins half tnelirtato compan ion the truth. Nor was it long before suc cess crowned his adroit cross-examination. Why, you see,' said his host, 'I believe there's a Utile revenge for n slight received Irom these fellow's sister, mixed up with the Major's desire to catch "the Bunkers. The cirl is very pretty, they say, mid tho Major, when she was down hero on n visit last vcar before the war got lo br so bloody want ed lo marry her, but sho would have nothinc to siy to him. Ever since, he lias vowed to make her rue tho day. i on may depend on ii, no win nave ner on his own terms now thank heaven ! there's no law nny longer to prevent an honest royalist from doinir as ho pleases to those rascally rebels. But yonder is tho Major now,' suddenly said his host. starting up, 'I'll introduce you to him nl once a merry fellow, you'll find him Lord love you ! he's as bravo ns a linn.' David, tliouch horrified ut the diabolical plot he had hoaid, saw tho necessity of dis sembling in order to learn further of tho to- ries plans, nnd find means, if possible, to circumvent them. Ho arose, therefore, and shook the Major's hand warmly; pledged him .immediately in a brimmer '; nnd soon contrived lo make tho royalists believe that lo was anxious to loin n tnuin and lake nart against the rebels. This induced the Major to bo unusually civil, for ho wished to secure so athletic a recruit himself. It wns not long before a bargain had been concluded between the two. David refused, however, to sinn tho agreement that night ; liu pretended that several others of his friends wrre disaffected and desirous of joining the royalists ; nnd his object, ho said, was to secure a commission for himself by inducing them to join. This templing bait took ; tho Major promised him a command in his troup in case of success, and David signified his intention of setting forth, after he had taken a few hours rest, in order to loose no time in gathering together us recruits. The dread of discovery had been con- slantly before our hero during the manage ment oi tins negotiation, lor his person was well known to many of tho Major's troop, and if any of them had como up, hi feigned name would not have nrotncled him frnm detection. Ho wished to get off that night, lis lie had nronnsed: hut In litis, neither lii host nur the .Major would hear, and was forced to remain till morning. Wli.it was his anguish to hear, on rising, that thu Major had been gone soino hours and was already nn his way to tho Bunkers, with his troons. Dissembling his anxiely, David partook of a hasty breakfast, and mounting his horso rodo slowly nway. But when out of sight of tho house, he struck into a fierce gallop, which ho continued till ho canio in sight of n cross road, when) was si tavern. Hero he stopped and learning that the royalists had taken thu hiuhroad, ho turned aside into a more narrow and circuitous one. ' It is my only chance to avoid them,' he said, again dashing into a gallop. ' Pray God, I may reach thq settlement in time to collect a fow of our lads and march to the Bunkers. There is no other hope now left.' Night had fallen, as they expected, before mo tones were able to reach tho vicinity of iiiu nuu3c inuy were in soarcn ot. At length, however, after a silent march through tho forest it broko upon their view, A light was burning in ono of tho windows, und when they arrived close lo tho premises tho lively notes of a violin reached their ears, nrnvino that thu brothers were not aware of their presence, but enjoying themselves in imagin ed security. ' Now men,' whispered the loader of the tories. 'when I civo tho word, firo a vollev at tho house by way of introducing oursel ves ; wo will then surround the place and en ter it.' At that instant tho deen bav of a dog rang in their ears, and u largo mastiff! sprang irom under llio house and rushed at the Major. ' r iro !' ho cried. Twenty guns broko unon the stillness of the night tho dog fell dead every pano of glass in l lie ironl ol I Ik; houso was shivered, and tho lories yelled liko javnges. In an in stant the Jighl in tho houso was extinguished and the violin ns quickly ceased, and a noise was heard at tho door. Tho lories iiiimcdi ntely mado n rush at it. But it was nlrcadv narrcd, und being mado of stout oak plank, resisted all their efforts. A rirto cracked Irom one or tho upper windows, and a lory tell desperately wounded. Another report succeeded, and another tory fell, and Major Wilson was now fully aware that both Bun kers were at home nnrl ..!.. a tl work IT, l,0,fireof Bakers, nnd went o work nl he door. Suspecting such resis-lance-perhaps from the knowledge of .hi r characler-ono of the mon l,,J brLglUan axn, wilh which ho t'ommriiceil hewing at the door, and soon cut it to pieces. Hem u desperate battle ensued. The two brothers were powerful men, nnd ns courageous ns they wero strong; and now with clubbed ri fles they disputed tho cnlrancu of the whole tory force. The door being small they stood llicir ground for half an hour, felling during lli.it time some nf thoso who had tho temeri ty to miter first, but finally numbers over- ramn them, und they wero flung upon the floor and bound. Tho tories, inflamed to madness ut the great resistanco which had been made, and ut their losses, seized the mother and sister, nnd mado preparations to hang the brothers before their eyes. The ropes wero already lied around tho nocks of the victims, when tho Major nddicsscd his men thus ; ' Now friends, ns soon ns these villains arc dead wo will set fire to this houso the old woman there,' he said with n brutal laugh, 'may bo left inside, but the young ono I re serve for myself.' ' Hist!' cried ono nf tho men in a loud voice. The Major ceased, and ihey heard a voice outsido "the house. Although the words were spoken low the listeners distinct ly hoard, 'when I say fire give it to them I' A man with blanched cheeks now rushed among them exclaiming, 'the yard is full of mon I' ' Firo !' cried n deep voico from tho yotd and a general volley succeednd,and so well had tho iiim been directed in the door, that seveial nf the toiies fell doad or desperately wounded. In turn tho tories retreated up tho stairs, when David, our hero, rushed into the room they had left, nnd cut the ropes which bound the Bunkers and their mother and sister. 1 May God Almighty bless you for this I' cried ono of tho Bunkers. Tho two men sprang up, seized their lilies, which had been left in the room, nnd prepared to retaliate the trcamcnt which they had just received. Lon.fr and desperate wns the battle. The tories fought for life, the whigs for revenge. But at length, tho latter triumphed, though not until their enemies had been almost wholly cxtirminatcd. Tho Major fell by the arm ofnurheio, who sought him out in the hottest of tho fight, nnd engaged him single handed. No language of ours can express tho emo tions of David as ho pressed his betrothed bride to his bosom ; and his heart went up in thankfulness lo heaven for his timely ar rival, when he thought that a delay of half an hour longer would have consigned her to a fate worso than death. Tho gratitudo of her brothers was expressed in many words, but hers was silent and fearful, vet oh ! how mticn more gratilying. ' I almost called lou a coward, son David.' said his father to him, when they met, 'but you are a chip ol tho old block nnd I did you wrong. Deborah, ho is n boy to be proud of is ho not 1 You rr.ny founder ono of my norses every day that you do such n riecd-il heats nny thing I saw in tho old French War.' David's gallantry in this act. drew around him, in. a few weeks, morn than a scoro of i hardy young followers, who fought with him to the close of the war, and ho relumed and was happily married to the heroine of our slory, GnuAT Ronnr.itv. Last evening a gen tleman named Reuben Ron ley, of Wren tham, Mass., left -his residence for the pur pose of visiting New York. He came lo Sloninglon by tho oars, and thence took the steamer Massachusetts. Durim? his nassane he was accosted by a man calling himself ooiiiuaate, who said he was well acquainted wilh Rouley, and knew that ho had a large estate. When within a few miles" of this city, Soutligaln offered Rowley a peach, which ho accepted and alt'. Ho was imme diately seized with sickness and vnmitintr, which continued until the boat reached the wharf, when ho discovered that during his sickness his pocket hook had hennlaken'frniii him, containing TWENTY-SEVEN THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED DOLLARS, chiefly in Eastern bank notes, lie presumes that the peach contained some emelic substance which caused the stupor and sickness.

Barrett, directing the committee on Finance to inquire iiitiilho management of the State Prison, and empowering them to send for nersons and pipers. Mr Barrett remarked, that it would be recol iected that in 1812, an appropriation of 8113,000 was maue uy the Legislature to pay up the long accumulating arrearages of this institution. Notwithstanding, in 184.1 the expenses exceed ed the income more than $3000 f in 1811 more than $2000 ; and in 1845, down to the present month, nearly $2000. It seemed to him, this course of things ought to bn arrested. Tho institution should at leu; bo made tn support itself. He had been informed that tho Now Hampshire Prison netted Ihe Siato a yearly profit of $1000. The Stale Penitentiary in Connecticut, as also I hat at Auburn, iuntcad of proving a burden to the people, was relieving tboiii from taxation. Without designing to cast any imputation upon any superintendent or Di rector of our Prison, ho thought it was well worth inquiring if a different result in its finan cial management could not bo secured. If there was a defect In. the law, or an. improv ident administration of Ihe law, let the fact be made known to the Legislature and the evil be corrected. The resolution was passed. HOUSE.

Barrett the resolution was amended by inserting 'a select" instead of "the Judiciary,'' and was parsed. Uefore adjourning, Air J. "arrett remarked that he deemed it proper to call the attention of the Senate to the report, in the Daily Journal, of his remarks, made yesterday on introducing a resolution relating to the State Prison. He found he was therein represented as having: stated definitely what he purposely staled indef initeltjns relying on recollection, and not hav. ing ollli'ii! statistics before him. In respect to the appropriation in 1812, he stated the sum to be near S15000. Tho expenses of 1843 over the income, he stated to bo nearly 83000 and; not as stated in the report in the Daily Journal, "more than 83000." Tho expenses of 1844 he stated to be nearly $2,000, instead of stating them to bo "more than 82,000." As to the New Hampshire Prison, ho stated the sum of income over expenditures as being nearly 81.000. I'liough, for general purposes, tho remarks as reported might bo sufficiently accurate, yet it was duo lo himself, as not wishing to manifest adisposilion to exaggerate, and butjust to those who may havo had personal connection with the Direction and Superintendency of the State Prison, that ho should call the attention of the Senate tolho subject, wilh a view to correcting' any wrong impression which might bo made bjf the report of his remarks ns printed..
