EX rRACT FROM MARSTON ; OR MEMOIR OF
Vincent had never told the story of
either, but a rumour reached his college
of his having been seen in the Austrian
uniform cn the Transylvanian frontier,
during the campaigns nf the Prince Co
burg and Landohn against the Turks. —
It Was singular enough, that on this very
evening, in arguing against some of my
whims touching destinies and omens, he
illustrated the facility of imposture on
such points by an incident from one of
“A friend of mine,” said he, “a captain
in the Lichtenstein husars, happened to
be on the outpost serviced the army.—
As the enemy were in great force, and
commanded by the Vizier in person, an
action was daily expected, and the pick
ets & videttes were ordered to be pecu
liarly on the alert. But, on a sudden,
every night produced some casua'ty.—
They either lost videttes, or their patrol
was surprised, or their baggage plunder
ed —in short, they began to be the talk
of the army. The regiment had been
always one of the most distinguished in
the service, and all those misfortunes
were wholly unaccountable. At length
a stronger picket than usual was ordered
for the night—not a man of them was
to be found in the morning. As no fifing
had been heard, the natural conjecture
was, that they must all have deserted.—
As this was still more a disgraceful re
sult than actual defeat, the colonel called
his officers together, to give what infor
mation they could. The camp, as usual,
swarmed with Bohemians, fortune-tel
lers, and gipsies, a race who carry intel
ligence ou both sides ; and whose perfor
mances fully accounted for the knowl
edge which the enemy evidently had of
our outposts. The first order was, to
clear the quarters of the regiment of those
encumbrances, and the next to direct
the videttes to tire without challenging.
At midnight a shot was heard ; all turned
out, and on reaching the spot where the
alarm had been given, the vidette was
found lying on the ground and senseless,
though without a wound. On his re
covery, he said that he had seen a ghost;
but that having tired at it, according to
orders, it looked so horribly grim at him,
that he fell from his horse, and saw no
more. Tlte Austrians are brave, but
they are remarkably afraid of supernatu
ral visitants,and a ghost would be a much
more formidable thing to them than a
discharge of grape-shot.
“The captam in qutstion was an Eng
lishman, and as John Bull is supposed,
among foreigners, to carry an unusual
portion of brains about him, the colonel
took him into his special council in the
emergency. Having settled their mea
sures, the captain prepared to take charge
of the pickets for the night, making no
secret of his dispositions. At dark, the
videtts and sentries were posted as usual,
and the officer took his post in the old
field redoubt, which had been the head
quarters of die pickets for the last fort
“All went on quietly until about mid
night ; the men otf duty fast asleep in
their cloaks, und the captain reading an
English novel. He too, had grown weary
of the night, and was thinking of stretch
ing himself on the tloor of his hut, when
he saw, and >ot without some perturba
tion, a tall spectral figure, in armour, en
ter the works, stride over the sleeping
men without exciting the smallest move
ment amongst them, and advance to
wards him. He drew his breath hard,
and attempted to call out, but his voice
was choked, and ho bewail to think him
self under the dominion of nightmare.
The figure came nearer still, looking
more menacing, and drew its sword.
My friend, with an eflbrt which he after
wards acknowledged to be desperate, put
his hand to his side to draw his own.
What was his alarm when he found that
it had vanished i At this moment his
poodle, whicli against all precautions,
had followed him, began barking fiercely
and rushing alternately towards him and
a corner of the redoubt. Though his
sabre was gone, a brace of English pis
tols lay on the table beside him, and he
fired one of them in the direction. The
shot was followed by a groan and the
disappearance of the spectre. The men
started to their feet, and all rushed out
in pursuit. The captain’s first step struck
upon a dead body, evidently that of the
spy who hud fallen by Ins fire. The pur
suit was now joined in by the whole re
gime it, who had been posted in the rear
unseen, to take advantage of circumstan
ces. They pushed on, swept all before
them, and bore down patrol and picket,
until they reached the enemy’s camp.—
The question then was, what to do next 1
whether to make the best of their way
back, or try their chance onward ! The
Englishman’s voice was for taking for
tune at the flow ; and the accidental
burning of a tent or two by tlie fugitives
showed him the Turks already in confu
sion. The trampling of battal lions in the
rear told him at the same time that he
had powerful help at hand, and he dashed
among the lines at once. The hussars,
de ermmed to retrieve their reputation,
did wonders—the enemy was completely
surprised. Ne troops but those in the
highest state of’ discipline are good for
any thing when attacked at night. The
gallantry of the Turk by day, deserts him
in the dark; and a ruglu surprise, if well
followed up, is sure "to end in- victory-
From the random firing and shouting on
every side, it was clear tiiat they were
totally taken unawares; and tin; rapid
and general advance of the Austrian brig
ades, showed that Landohn was m the
mind to make a handsome imperial bul
letin. I>ty dawned or* a rout as entire
as ever was witnessed in a barbarian cam
paign. The enemy were flying in all di
tions like a horde of Tartars, and camp,
cannon, baggage, standards, every thing
was leit at the mercy of the pursueers.”
“But die captain, the Englishman, what
became of turn ?” I asked, slightly glan
cing at the countenance of the narrator.
“Oh, very well otf indeed ! Foreign
Governments are showy to the soldier,
and Joseph the Second, though an econ
omist in civil matters, was literal to hfs
successful officers. The captain received
a pension ; a couple of orders; was made
a colonel on the first opportunity ; and,
besides, had his share of the plunder—no
slight addition to his finances, for the mil
itary chest had been taken in the baggage
of the Seraskier.”
“And by this time,” said I, with an un
enquiring air,” he is doubtless a field
“Nothing of the kind,” replied my rev
erend friend, “for victory cured him of
soldiership. He was wounded in the en
gagement, and if he had been ever fool
enough to think of fame, the solitary
hours of his invalidism put an end to
the folly/ Other and dearer thoughts
recurred to his mind. He had now ob
tained something approaching to a com
petence, if rightly managed; he askad
[iermissission to retire, returned to Eng
land, married the woman he loved; and
never for a moment regretted that he
was listening to larks and linnets instead
of trumpets and cannon, and settling the
concerns of rustics instead of manaever
ing squadrons and battal lions/’
“But what was the ghost, after all ?”
“Oh, the mere trick of a juggler 1 a
figure projected on the wall by some in
genious contrivances of glasses. The
instrument was found on the body of the
performer, who turned out to be the col
onel’s valet—of course in the enemy’s
pay, and who furnished them with daily
intelligence of all our proceedings. As
for the loss of the sabre, which actually
startled the ghost-seer most, he found it
next morning hanging up in the hut,
where he himself had placed it, and tor
gotten that lie had done so.”
“And the captain, or rather the colonel,
brought with him to England a cimeter
cut on his arm, and another on his lore
head /” I asked, fixing my eyes on him.
A crimson flush passed over his counte
nance, he bit his lip and turned away. I
feared that I had olfended irreparably.—
But his natural kindliness of heart pre
vailed, he turned to me gently, laughed,
and pressing my hand in his, said, “You
have my secret. It has escaped me for
for the first time these thirty years. Keep
it like a man of honor.”
THE FIRST PRAYER IN CONGRESS.
The subjoined extract of a characteris
tic letter from John Adams, describing a
scene in the first Congress in Philadel
phia in .September, 1774, show's very
clearly on what Power the men of old
rested their cause. Mr. A. thus writes
to a friend at the time.
“When the congress met, Mr. Cush
ing made a motion that it should be open
ed with prayer. It was opposed by Mr.
Jay, of New York, and Mr. Rutledge of
South Carolina, because wo wore so di
vided by religious sentiments, some Epis
copalians, some Quakers, some Presby
terians, some Ana! aptists, and some Con
gregational its, that we could not join in
the same act of worship. Mr. Samuel
Adams arose and said that he was no
bigot, and could hear a prayer from any
gentleman of piety and virtue who was
at the same time a friend to his country.
He was a stranger in Philadelphia, but
had heard that Mr. Duche, [Dushay they
pronounced it,] deserved that character,
and therefore he moved that Mr. Duche,
an Episcopal clergyman, might be de
sired to read prayers to the Congress
to-morrow morning. The motion was
seconded, and passed in the affirmative.
Mr. Randolph our President, waited on
Mr, Duche, and received for an answer
that if his health would permit he cer
tainly would. Accordingly next morn
ing he appeared with his clerk, ana his
pontificals and read several prayers, in
the established form, and then read the
collect for the seventh day of September,
which was the thirty-fifth psalm. You
must remember, this was the next morn
ing ofter we had heard the rumor of the
horrible cannonade of Boston. It seem
ed t as if ’ eaven had ordained thu
saplm to be read on that « orning.
“After this Mr. Duche, unexpectedly
to every body, struck out into an extem
porary prayer which filled the bosom of
every man present. I must confess I
never heard a better prayer, or one so
well pronounced. Episcopalian as he is,
Dr. Cooper himself never prayed with
such server, such ardor, such correctness
and pathos, and in language so eloquent
and sublime, for America, for Congress,
for the province of the Massachusetts
Bay, especially lor the town of Boston. It
has had an excellent effect upon every
body here. I must beg you to read the
psalm. If there is any faith in the sortes
Virgiliance, or sortes HomericcE, or es
pecially the sortes Biblic®, it would be
Here was a scene worthy of the pain
ter’s art. It was in Carpenter’s Hall in
Philadelphia, a building which (we learn
by a recent article) still survives in its
original condition, though, now sacrili
gtonsly converted, be believe, into an
auction mart for the sale of chairs and
tables, that the forty-four individuals met
to whom this service was read.
Washington was kneeling there, and
Henry, and Randolph, and Kutledge,and
Jay, and by their side there stood, be.
tween in reverence, the Ptaritan patriots
of New England, who at that moment
had reason to believe that an armed sol
diery was wasting their humble house
holds. It was believed that Boston had
been bombarded and destroyed. They
prayed fervently for America, for Con
gress, for the province of Massachusetts
Bay, mid especially for the town of Bos
ton, and who can realize the emotions
with which they turned imploringly to
Heaven tor divine interposition and aid ?
“It was enough,” says Mr. Adams, “ to
melt the heart of a stone. I saw the
tears gush into the eyes of the old, grave,
pacific Quakers of Philadelphia.
SPANISH JUSTICE-HORRIBLE STORY.
The follnwing occurrence in Spain is
related by the Gazttte des Tribunaux
on the authority of a letter of the lfeth
ult/ from Pens de Annentcra, in Catalo
nia. For illegality and inhumanity it is
without example in any civilized coun
try : “ Four inhabitants of Santa Colon
nade Querol had disappeared, and were
supposed to have been carried otf by bri
gands and confined in a cave, with the
object of obtaining large sums of money
for their ransom. All the endeavors of
the magistrates of the district having fail
ed iu discovering the retreat, application
was made to Don Domingo Ripelli, Gov
ernor of Solsona, to lend his more pow-.
erful assistance. He conceived and exe
cuted the following stratagem: On the
3d he wrote to the alcades of Santa Col
lonna de Querol and of Montagut, com
manding them to meet him at 7 o’clock
the next morning in the market place of
SantaColonna, with as many of the male
inhabitants within their districts, princi
pally peasants, as they could assemble,
bringing with them a list of the names
of all they could collect/ This order
was strictly obeyed. After keeping the
assemblage waiting till 9, the Governor
arrived with a strong detachment of cav
alry and infantry, and surrounded all
present. Having received the lists, and
viewed with a scrutinizing eye all pres
ent, he addressed them in a stern manner,
saying, “I have acquired information that
the cave in which the four missing in
habitants of Santa Colonna are kept pris
oners by the bandits is known to both
your villages. Point it out to me on the
instant.” The poor peasants looked at
each other with dismay, but answered
not a word. Don Domingo continued :
“If you do not reveal to me where the
cave is, 1 will have you decimated and
shot, beginning with the Alcade de Pon
tils.” This magistrate threw himself on
his knees, and, with tears and earnest
supplications entreated all present to con
fess what they knew, and save the life of
a man who, though old, was dear to his
family, fetid not a word was uttered.
Upon this M. Magiu Limas, a wealthy
land owner of Montagut addressed the
Governor in the following impressive
terms; “ I assure you, Sir, upon my hon
or, that I am convinced iu my conscience
that not a person in my village has a
knowledge of the cave you seek, and
even that no such cave exists anywhere in
the neighborhood of Montagut. If, not
withstanding this affirmation, you must
have a victim take me, but spare the rest.
lam ready to die.” “ Wei.,” replied Don
Domingo, “ you shall be the first to be
shot,” and taking him by the arm, push
ed him into an empty house at hand and
and placed a guard over him. This
done, the Governor once more called up
on the people to make the required dis
covery. As they could not tell what
they did not know, he divided them into
tens, and sent the tenth man of each se
ries, together with the two Alcades, into
custody, at the house where M. Magin
already was, making in all 14 prisoners.
These being secured, he again turned to
the people who remained, and said, “It
rests with you still to save the lives of
your fellow citizens. If, within 24 hours,
you make known to me the cave in ques
tion, l will set my prisoners free. If not
they shall be shot. The villagers held
a council, and dividing themselves into
separate parties, set out on their hopeless
search, which, as they anticipated, prov
ed vain. At the appointed hour, on the
sth, they met the Governor again, and,
with sorrowful countenances, again assu
red him that they knew not of, nor could
discover any subterraneous cavern or oth
er retreat of the brigands. They suppli
cated in the most abject terms for mercy
to the prisoners, whoy they vowed, were
equally innocent with themsefVes. The
Governor gave an evasive answer, and
ordered (hem all to be shut ftp in the
church, which was surrounded by troops.
Leaving them there an hour, the Govern
or entered, bringing with him the twelve
other prisoners, and then a Idressed the
trembling crowd saying: “I know that
von are acquainted with the cave, and
that you are accomplices of the band that
carried crtf the four inhabitants of Santa
Colonna, I will not shoos the persons
whom I confined yestqrday, but I will
make yoft all draw lots for ten among
you, whom I will put to death immedi
ately.” The names of all present in : cus
tody were written on separate slips of pa
per, put into a box, and well shaken to
gether. The Governor then drew out
one of the slips, and the man whose
name was inscribed upon it was taken
away by a file of soldiers headed by the
obdurate Governor. After a few minutes,
while the inmates of the church were on
their knees in prayer and supplication to
the Divinity, the discharge of a platoon
of musketry was heard, and they were
all overwhelmed with horror. The Gov
ernor returned, took another name Irom
the box, and led the person whom it indi
cated away, in like manner as the first,
and his departure was followed by the
like awful report of musketry. Unmov
ed by the sight of the moral torture his.
proceedings inflicted, Don Domingo Ri
poli continued his process till the tenth
report was heard. Again l the Governor
entered the sacred building, and interro
gated its remaining prisoners afresh.—
They all repeated their former protesta
tion 1 , and begged him to suspend further
acts of severity until they had explored
the whole country round, swearing in
the most solemn terms that they would
use every exertion to make the discovery,
which they desired as anxiously as he
did. Upon this Don Domingo gave way,
and, making a signal, the ten men believ
ed ter be shot, were all brought in alive,
though dreadfully affected by what they
had 1 undergone. They were, in fact, ta
ken successively into the burying ground,
and having their eyes bandaged, were
ordered to kneel in front of a party of
soldiers who fired blank cartridges over
their heads. Being at last convinced
that the peasants of neither village had
any connection with the Brigands, the
Governor released them.
