Th * Myateriaaa Mardtr-Oar Niftat"? Ex* prrinff in L?nd?n. It was in the fall of 18?, that the ship to which I belonged, after a v enrage in the northero Atlantic, Love in sight of the Scilly Inland, and as we were bound for London, shaped oar coarse up the channel and in a few days were Hue bo red in the downs. Having got short of ; provision? for some time back, we were obliged to stop and replenish. The next daj, however, we were towed up to the river and entered Commercial Dock on the 2$?. It was a grand sight to me, for I had never been in London, and the city seemed like the world in comparison with mj little village in the west of En{land. We were paid off on the morrow; and determined, as soon as I was at libertv. to take a stroll and see some of the righta which I had so often heard- At twelve o'clock next day all hands proceeded to the office in Lender liall street, and received severally the amount due them. There were just ?10 coming to me and I started off to tee bow I could best make I it conducive to my pleasure. I had been ' -trolling around lor some time, looking at. th? tower anil otder places of note, and finally walked into one of the parka to see what I could of the pondon fashion*. I was leaning against a tree watching a party which attracted my attention, when I was suddenly accosted by a fcmile, apparently about eighteen or twenty, ueatly dressed, and with anexpresiuns which though pleasing, seemed somewhat sad. "What is it you wish,my good lady V* said I. She looked at me for a moment, and said: You are a sailor, I suppose?" Yn." 'How long hare jou been in London'" "I armed yesterday." "Have you been here before?" ' Never." "Well then perhaps I can be of *ome assistance to yon. Suppose we take a cab and drive over to Vauxhall this evening"' I hesitated a moment; for 1 thought to my self, she no doubt thinks I have plenty of money, and wishes to obtain a share. Bat then again, I thought, it makes no difference, I will spend it anyhow; and eonsented. She called a cab. and in a short time we were at Vauxhall I pulled out my purse to pay the driver, when she anticipated me. and oaid : " Never mind, sir, I have plenty. Besides, I invited you here; therefore. I bear the expense " I was astonished, for I had never doabted but that tuy ui.ney was the principal attract tion; and i waa pooled to think what could be her object. After ordering some refreshments, of which the ate and drank very little, but which ahe insisted upon paying for, we strolled about the garden, lutemn^ to the music, until toward evening- when 1 remarked that it wu beat to return. 44 Yea. it will soon be dark, and we had better to.

I reside in street, and if you will accept a room in my house, you will he perfectly welcome; and my husband, who is fond of company, wilt be glad to see you." While hesitating, she called a cab and half forced me in. I went up stairs to the room -he had pointed out, opened the door and went in. It w? furnished. you might say, richly; the bed stood in the farther corner, with blue damask curtains in front I untirMM^ ? * ? - l mmmjiTVlt IfUiV/ftlJ, 00 1 WHS somewhat tired with my day * adventure*. walked to the bed and drew asido the curtain*, and there lay a man weltering in hid blood, with hU throat cut from ear to ear ' It would be vain to attempt to describe my feeling*. I immediately J rested myself, with a presence of mind I can never account for. I then tried to open the door, which, to my horror, I found was locked Glancing around the room, my eye fell upon the irons in the fire-^lacl; I snatched up one, and with uuo C.IUAO wiiuc iWS AUU upVDCd IflC flOOT Running down the stair?, I found the front door fastened, too. Having nothing to break' the lock with. I darted into the first room I couie to, and jumped from the window into an alley on the side of the house, and had merely time to conceal myself when the people around began crying murder, and it was the very woman I came with, followed by several of the police, entered the hou^a, thinking, I suppose, of oourse, she would find me. I left as soon as I *i i nH i i ft ^ me crowa garnered around, and parsed oat unnoticed. The next morning I was reading the paper, and almost the first thing that attracted me was the notioe of a bloody murder in gtreet. with a reward of ??M) for the iimmUminn ?r ? rr - Vi the murderer. It went farther, sad in the description of the supposed person described me better than I could have done myself, even to the manner in which I wore my beard.

Disturbed by his talk, the ocalist suddenly paused, and the Queen, who was preeent, stretched a little out of her box to ascertain the cause.

The Wife or Job* Adams ?In a f?jw weeks the proclamation reached the coloniea at several ports Abagail Smith, the wif? ?f .t?k?

Since the departure of her husband for Congress, the arrow of death had sped near her bv dav anri 1 7 " the pestilence that walks in darkness had entered her hutnble mansion; she herself was itill weak after a violent illness; her house was a hospital in every part; and such was the distress of the neighborhood she could hardly find a well person to assist in looking after the si<*k Ifflr ?ni "? k?1 1 u?u ucch refcued from the grave by her nursing; her own mother had been taken away, and, after the austere manner of her forefathers, buried without a prayer Woe followed woe, and one affliction trod on the heel* of another. Winter was hurrying on; during the day family affairs took off her attention. DUt her long evenings, broken by the sound of the storm on the oceiti. or the enemy's artillery at Boston, were lonesome and melancholy. Ever in the silent night ruminating on the love and tenderness of her departed 1 A. _ * parent, sne needed the consolation of her husband's presence; but when, in November, she read the King's proclamation, she willingly gave up her nearest friend exclusively to Tjis perilous duties, and sent him the cheering message "This intelligence will make a plain path f >r yeu. though a dangerous one; I could not jr?in to-day in the petitions of our worthy pastor for a reconciliation between our no longer parent state, but tyrant itatc. and these nolo nies.
