the blood of thousands, it left the legacy
of freedom to mankind, and few in those
"times which tried men's soul's," acquir
ed greater fame in the American cause
than Malachi Doolittle, the blacksmith's
' roads on thejohuny cake and sausage. A
geuuine Yankee is seldom so deep in love
that he lorsakes his victuals, aud such
was certainly tall Malachi's case.
When there was no excuse fur longer
delay, bestowing a kiss rpon tho blush
ing check of Mary, the stranger bestrode
his animal, and set forth at a round gal
lop, on his datk j urney.
"I guess I'd belter go and finish fod
dering the cattle," said Malachi, as the
clatter of the horse's hoofs died away in
the distance. "Old Hull has broke his

' "Well how on earth can thee go down
to Brunswick without him, Malachi ?
How foolish you can talk to-night."
"Weill didn't know but hat you
might want to use him," said Malachi,
closing the door behind him, and start

for the balance of your material days.
And now for a paitiug salutue io the
boss," he added, as he rode up to the
door of the o'd farm house. ' llullow
Squire Hutton, suthin's broke loose ! '
"Why, Malachi, what is the matter?"
asked the smith opening the door; is the

the whole plot, and am going to take

"Why, his horse is fleet as the wind,
and he will be in Trenton before thou art

The night was very dark ; the flakes
of snow were falling fast over tho already

such a gait as convinced him that En

Tho sun was not above an hour high
when a tall, slab-sided Yankee, mounted
on a bony horse, rode up to the American

he had something of the most vital im
portance to communicate to tho General.
His invincible pertinacity finally procur
ed him the coveted audience with the
