While he was speaking, he saw that the
ship, which he had noticed half an hour
before at a di-tauce, bad drawn dose in
with th"! land, and had dropped anchor
about abreast of the uilct. 1 he sun had
already set, yet ho could see bcr distinctly,
and discover that she was a merchant ship,
lie remained for some time watching bcr,
and listening to the distant drum of a de
tachment of militia of the neighborhood,
which was retiring homewards from the mus
terficld. The sound of the drum died aw ay
iu the distance beyond the mill, and the low
dashiug of w aves against the bridge fell up
ou his ear.
" Well, to-morrow, I too, shall march to
the mca.-urc of the fife and drum 1 I will
euli-t as a private aud make my way up.
Annette shall be won 1"
He paused, thinking he hoard the sound
of oars. He looked seaward, but the twi
light rendered objects too obscure to detect
any boat approaching. Yet each moment
the fall of tho sweeps came dearer and
nearer, and ho was sjoii uble to discover n
barge pulling iu towards the bridge, liis
position in tiio shailovv of an overhanging
limb shielded him from observation, lb
saw that the boat contained at least twenty
men. It moved slower as it drew ..nearer
the land, and a person stauding up in the
stern dirciting its lauding. It struck the
shore close by the bridge within the inlet ;
and almost beneath where lie stood, the par
ty debarked. He now saw that half of them
were aeanien and half marines, and that all
were armed. They wcreVomuianded by a
young midshipman, who, forming them into
a column marched them up the bank a:nl
ou the biiJge. Edward, as liiey ea.ue m ar,
drew liiuikdf up into tho limb, an 1 was
concealed in the foliage while he observed
with surprise their stealthy movements.
" How far is the grist-mill hence, Sam
bo ?" a--k d the young oflicer, looking about
him aftei he had got on the bridge, save a
a man to guard the boat.
" The first mill am bout a third of a mile
up do creek, an deto ther one wliar de most

long de creek shore," answered' a man in
the true Yankee negro intonation, but speak

taw the bar-room was nearly filled with
men. The next moment, he was in their
presence. His mauuci was divested of all
excitement, and a spirit calm aud resolute
beamed from bis eyes. There were at least
twenty men in the apartment, most of them
with knapsacks and bayom.l lulls upon their
person, and some leaning upon their mus
kets; while the guns of the rest of the party
were stacked iu the corner of the room.
Some of them were smoking, other- drink

one of the party, of certain exploits of him

1 he following incident, related l
April nuinber ot the Ladies h.'potory,
shows that babies in church are not iways
regarded as nuisances. Theie is sointhing
very touching about it :
" A brother just returned from Calbmia
says he was present in the congregaon of
Ibothcr Owen, when a b'tby iu the ains of
its mother began to cry. A thing so uusual
in California attracted not a little attution,
and the mother rose to retire. Hon t
leave,' said the preacher; 'the solid of
that babe s voice is more interesting tanany
in this congregation than my own. It is
perhaps the swutest music many a mn has
heard since a long time aio he too leave
of his di-t.int home.' The effect was in
stantaneous and powerful, ut.d a lare por
tion of the congregation melted intoteurs.''

with the liisloi ii of' its uiKiiieni in this
country. The fir-t gold found in North
Carolina, and probably in the I'nited States,
in valuable quantity, (always excepting the
iny-tei ious digging, and unknown discove
ries of our aboriginal predecessors.) was in
ITU!!, at the celebrated '' Heed Mine," in
Cabarrus county, North Carolina. It was
found by a little s ut of Mr. Heed, about l'J
years old, while amusing himself with bow
and arrow in sho"ting for fish on a small
stream called " Meadow Creek." The lump
of "yellow metal " thus discovered .said to
have been of the size of a " small smoothing-iron,''
was taken home,- aud retained
several years by bis father, without know
ing its name or value! No one at that
early period presumed to think that gold
existed iu North Carolina, or even in the
I'nited States. In l-U'., Mr. Heed carried
the " lump of strange metal " in his wagon

the work must necessarily be stopped if a,
more ardent a,.d patriotic feeling does not
prevail among the people of tiiis country,

this great object could be effected, it is only
necessary to state that tne ccl.ts a hea l
from each white n.hai.itaiit of the I nite 1
States would be sufficient to complete tho

pears to be the apathy and indifference ex
isting iu relation to this noble undertaking
that even that small sum cannot be obtained
for so patrimic and glorious a purpose.
In Norway, the three-fourths of tb.0
amount necessary to erect a monument in

lately by voluntary cor.trilnitio"ns in tw
