A mile or so Irom the fort they un expectedly met tho advance of tho invading forces, fired a few shots, and retreated back to tho fort with the intelligence. Governor Clinton immediately detached a body of men with a field-piece to mako a stand on tho Orangr.lown road. Sir Henry Clinton di vided his army into two columns ono of which, under his immediate command, was to cross the creek and atlack Fort Montgom ery ; and the other, under the command ol Count Grabouski was a young Pole a volunteer aid lo Sir Henry Clinton in this expedition. I have heaid, but known nolh- ing of its truth, that he was on his way to this country in a trench vessel, to oiler Ins ser vices, like Pulaski, to our country, when the ship in which ho emb irked at Nantes was c. iptured by a British ship of war, and the Count was carried into New York.

The following are the particulars of my escape : "You know that the fori was guarded by -100 men, who furnished dailv GO soldiers, placed as sentries outside Iho walls. More over, the principal gato nf the prison was guarded by the goalers, two of whom were constantly or. duly- It was necessary that I should elude their vigilance ,aficrwards tra verse tho inside court, before the windows of the commandant's residence; and, arriving there, I should bo obliged to pass by a gate which was guarded by soldiers. "Nut wishing to communicate my design to any one, it was necessary lo disguise my self. As several rooms in the part of ihe building I occupied wero undergoing repairs, it was not difficult to assume tho dress uf a worknnn. My good and faithful valet, Charles Thelid, procured a smock-fiock and i pair of sabots (wooden shoes,) and niter shaving off my moustaches, I took a plank on mv shoulder.

Forlunntely, I placed ihe plank I was carrying before my fice, and succeeded in reaching the yard. Whenever I passed a sentinel or any other person,! al- ways kept the plank before my faro.

Tho following extraordinary dramatic scene, wn will venture to say, has never had its parallel on this earth, and is tlio legiti mate offspring of that strange invention to which the public attention at this moment is so much and so universally attracted. On Saturday evening last, June 0, Fro- fessor Morse, the inventor and superintend ot.nftho magnetic telegraph, and bin assist ant, NirTfail-Jn their offirui.t Washington, wished to lest llio in'rrrily of ll.e telegraphic line the whole distance lhr.iw.ti from Wash ington In New York, n distance ti niit less than 2ffi miles.

A TAI.E or NEW KNOLAND. A few years before tho Revolution, an honest farmer and his family, preparing lo celebrate Thanksgiving at his wife's father's in an adjacent town, were hurricd& confused on the day proceeding the festival, by tho multiplicity of things which must bo done before they could leave homo with perfect safety.

The avenuu through which he enter ed was immediately closed up, and all ne cessary woik and arrangements being com pleted, the larger bns and girls set off on fool in high glee, the dog running and bark ing beforu them, apparently as well pleased wiih gning to Grand-papa's as any of llio happy group. Soon after, the parents and their little ones, having put out the fire and fastened doors and windows to keep out thieves, start ed on the same ( .'Slination. On the afternoon of the day following iho festival, which hid been kept under ll.e pa rental roof with many devout and jovial ex ercises, the family returned home, accompa nied by some of their young cousins. Some of Ihe youthful neighbors uf both sexes wero invited in, and a merry Thanksgiving carou sil was in the full tide of successful opera tion, when one of the boys, w ho lid been sent into the cellar with a two wicked can dle, which gave just light enough to mako darkness visible, to draw cider, ran back in to the room with eyes glaring wildly, utter ing a halfsi.lfocated exclani itinn "the dev il's in the cellar!" "Poll !" s lid tho father, "you have been fiiglitene.l at you own shad ow give nie the light !" On which he seiz ed the candle,leaving the pen ler candlestick clenched fast in the shaking hand of the boy, and bnldlv rushed to the cellar stairs ; but ere ho had descended half ihe steps, iho large saucer eyes and enormous horns of the beast caused him lo retreat as much terrified ns his son "sure enough tin devil's in the cellar!"

One blight thought however, occurred a messenger was des patched to iho minister, "lo lay the Devil." The parson, a man more celebrated for good nature, piety and crednl."ly,thaii fur tal ents or heroism, slipped the sin ill Bible into his pocket, pot on band ami surplice, that ho might appear as formidable as possible lo his great adversary, and hastened to the lelief of Ins distressed parishioners. On coining to tlio house, the reverend man was hailed its a deliverer, and imploied by at least a dozen voices at once, lo "drivo Iho devil away," But few moments vv ero lost in asking questions, which none could answer, the parson was pushed foitvard as a leader,lighled by the siuie penurious candle, into llio cellar, the most courageous of thu conipiny keeping close behind him. When he reached the foot of the st.iiis, the eves of fne and the shidowy outline of enormous horns, magnified len fold at leist by the ter rors of those that beheld them, removed all doubt, if any had previously existed in his mind, as to ihe infernal nature of the being with whom he had lo contend. The divine instantly fell on Ins knees, and with uplifted hands, began In pray in the most fervent manner. Tho ram not understanding the good man's molives,bnt supposing by the mo I lion of his hands lhat he was daitug him lo a bulling contest, made a pass at his supposed adversary, but, deceived by the swelling dimensions of his drapery, missed , the slender body of the priest, and drawing hastily back lo renew Hie iKsaull, Hook ed ono of his horns into the belt of his sur plice, and pulled the parson with him into the cellar!

The past scene, however, was loo ludicrous to admit of sober reflec tion, and loud peals of laughter burst foith from every side, during which thu ram was turned out at ihe dour, the parson absented himself without rriemnny, and the sports of the ovening tteio resumed with better spirits man ever.
