Reception. A very pleasant party met
on Friday evening last at the residence of
Rev. I. Wilson to pay their respects to
that glorious man of God, Bishop Peek, of
the M. E. Church. Tho Bishop was not
enjoying the best of health, but he received
his friends in the kind and genial inn mien
for which he is so noted, and the evening
passed off pleasantly and profitably to all.
Nice ITOMESTEADS. Messrs. W. II.
Dodd -ft Co. arc offering for sale a number
of four-acre lots adjacent to the city, esjice
ially designed for those who desire to se
cure land enough upon which they can not
only erect a commodious and comfortable
dwelling for their familes, with all the nec
essary outhouses, and not have them crow
ded too elo-ely together, but tor those who
may wish to cultivate gardens, raising
small ft nits, vegetables, etc., for this mar
ket. The ground i3 rich, and gardening
will be one of the most successful and pay
ing industries of the future, and those who
secure lots nov while they can be obtained
at a nominal figure, and properly iipprove
them, will reap a rich reward probably
much earlier than by an investment of a
similar amount of coin in any other way.
Wanted a FmE. Across the river, in
the .Soap creek country, resides a little girl
who, a few days since, during the tempo
rary absence ot her parents, concluded to
experiment and passofTthe time by setting
fire to the grass in the field adjoining the
house. The experiment came wirhin an
ace of being very successful, much more co
than the little Miss contemplated, as, had
it not been for the early discovery of the
fire, Mrs. Becky Col well would have los'
her entire hay crop, which was stacked in
an adjoining field, and a large amount of
fencing and other property would liave
Iwen destroyed. When the little one was
questioned as to the object in setting lire
to the grass, she said she ' wanted a fire."

THE ITIXC TRIDITEB t'OniULLED.
. He may bo found on Pike's old farm, on
the road leading from Corvallis to Yaqui
tia Bay. These are the facts:
There has been a number of letters writ
ten traducing our characters. These let
ters all refer to T. II. Bamhatt for future
evidence to substantiate their slanderous
statements. Barnlmrt took thes letters
from the postoffice to Mr. Hinds', where it
was designed to injure U3 most. The wri
ter of tliese letters shows familarity with
Barnhart. They know Barnhart'a, and
learned froni them Hind's name; learned
from them tliat they had Hind's daughter in
thei remploy, and find that they think a
great deal ot her,-v-and they direct their
most malicious letters to Baruhart lor Iain
to give to Hinds. He (Bariihart) receives,
opens and reads the letters, and then car
ries them to Hinds, knowing they refer to
hiinsel! for further cvidene, and by inueu
does tries to confirm tlie malicious slanders
and lies contained in those letter., yet all
the time claiming to be our friend! We
get these letters Into our possession, and
write to Mr. Barnhart, asking him why,
as a friend, he did not let us know of their
existence, and why he did not contradict
the base falsehoods himself. Citing his
conduct in the matter, we frankly told him
that the suspicion of the authorship of the
letters rested on himself and Kr d, and we
demanded the name ot the author. At
this Barnlmrt llcw into a pas-i ti and called
upon the grave-yard for a witness f his
innocence. Larnhart claimed to believe
tlie writer of the letters was a woman.
We give it as onr honest opinion that that
woman V is now coiiiiter-hopper in It.
Cheadle's store, fir We do not kgovv any
woman except Fred and hrr father that
would have written such bawdy stuff. We
are perfectly satisfied tlmt BariihaYt him
self furnished the material. In at.S'.vcr to
our letttr ! Barnhart says: "you would
have known before now why I did not de
ny it, it Cal. Graves had not died. Bnt as
he is dead, I have kept it to myself."'
Now, we will inform the uublic that Oil.
Graves died, to the best of out recollection,
the forepart of August, 1.S72. Barnhart's
continued to speak well of us and contin
ued to be friends of ours up to , and even
alter, the issiuw.ee of these slanderous let
ters, the first of which appeared about the
middle of November. 1"71. and we do not
hesitate to say that we can bring forward
more than a dozen of the most respectable
citizens ot Iinn comity who will swear
that they do not believe Barnhart even
should lie make oath that he got any such
stutf from C'al. Graves. Cal. Graves had
been dead twenty-seven montis frfure thene
slanderoitt) fuUliooris tre invented, and he
never heard anything of the sort, nor did
anyone else during Cal' lifetime. We
trace this whole thing into Barnhart's fam
ily there we leave it. If Barnhart can
give anything decent to the public that
w ill justify lii-s conduct in this matter, we
sliall be glad to see him do so; but if be or
any of his friends comes out with any scur
ilons slang, we will have published
enough of Baruhaj-t's contradictory letters
of May and June last to prove to the pub
lic that he is a barefaced liar. We shull
always hold the-Baruhai t'.s guilty of writ
ing tliese letters and circulating these slan
ders, and will hold no intercourse with them
whatever, and sd:a!l take no future notice
of them, except as above, as we consider
them unworthy of the respect or confidence
of any civilized, christian community. W e
hold possession of l heir letters wnich will
convince all except, the guilty ones, and
any one desiring cairsee them.

APTIHIPKU the i7tti:k.
BY THOMAS DUNN EKGLISfl.
At the time of which we write there wa3
an Inlet on Jitckers .Keacu, New Jersev.
called Biigantine Inlet. In 1800 this was
cioseti up. auu me e.- lormeii another in
let, wlncli exists to tins' day. There was
no Tuckertown then. It was the Gaunt
Farm at that time. The only settlement
then was what was known as the Middle-
ot-tbe-bhore. " extending on each side of
what was called Andrew's Mill Creek, the
property originally lielonsriuer to Jneob
Andrews, who settled there in the last year
of the sixteenth century ami who had a
mill. There were not a great many peo
ple; out iney um a great onsiness in inn
btr and cypress shingles, wi.ich they sent
principally to New ork and tint West
Indies. Liuring the Revolution the place
was a reutiezvous tor American privateers.
and these little sen-hornets suiuoyed the
British 8hipiiiig so much- fttnXiiii expetli
tlou was organ ized, with the "Zebra "and
other ships ot war, to break up the "dVn.
There were several privateers lying there
at the lime; but they were warned by an
express from General .Washington, ami
escaped before the British i-aiih. . Wash
ington sent a force under Pulaski to meet
the invaders; but they did not arrive until
tho enemy had done sll the mischief.
Part ot Pulaski's men reached Osburn's
Island, and their picket-guard ws snrpris-
ea anil massacred iy me enemy. The In
vader did not escape without loss. In get
ting out the " Zi bra " grounded, and her
own people burned her, to .prevent her
capture by the Americans.
i Here was one privateer that the enemy
managed to take as she was coming in
the "Saucy Jack." She was Baltimore
built, very fast, and armed with a long
eighteen pounder. The admiral made
her h tender to the flag-ship, added a coup
le ot ten-pound carrouades to herf arma
ment, and put a crew ot eighteen men and
a miusnipman auoaru, coiuniaiiiieu Dy a
masters mate. She beeanie a regular
nuisance to the place, sailing in every now
and then, exploring the harbor, levying
cowi-iouuons oi soit lack, vegetables ami
chickens, and then sailing out. The neo-
plc would have liked to take her; but while
tne sin.-tdron was so near the place the
heavy private armed vessels avoided it.
There was a Quaker who lived not far
from the beach, by the name of Enhraim
lappincott. He had the reputation of be
ing a Tory ui sympathy, principally be
eauso bis son OUed, having engaged in oi.e
or two skirmishes with British-foraging
parties, had leen disowned and rcpriiiiad
ed for violating tlie peace principles of the
Friends. When the British parties visited
there they were met with a wurin welcome.
Bnt Ephraini was .i;o Tory, after all
merely a prudent man, who" tried to sail as
close to the wind as possible. Obed. though
he hail been disowned, was always sure ot
quarters at home when he chose to go; and
he went there just after the last visit of the
commander of the Sea Wasp. " as the
"Saucy Jack " had been rechrL-tened -by
her captors. " '
The father met him indifferently, but af

' I've noticed that the master of the ves

where the beach shelves 6ft" suddenly, and

"So I perceive."
"Now, if there. were bloodthirsty and

"They inij'ht go down armed at the

ami ultimately surrendered. Five .had been
Killed outright and eight severely wounded,
three of them mortally.
The cutter had been won; but to keep it
was anot her matter. There was. no crew
to man it. even if it could be got. to sea
through the squadron. " As- soon as the
news ot its capture was known, or when
some time had efipsed after- Its abieiice.
there would be powerful boat's crews sent
lor It. perliaps some ofthe smaller vessels.
So. after consultation, it was agreed to cut
the rigging, remove the masts, and sink
the vessel in the deepest hole in the harbor,
to be raised at a suitable opportunity.
This was soon done, after taking tlie mov
able property ashore, previously tilling
the barrels of the Long Tom and carrou
ades with all the melt'd beeswax that
could be had in the neighborhood and then
storing them in the hold. Then the pris
oners were caried off by their captors over
the country ami safely lodged in Philadel
phia. In three days a British force came, as
had been expected, and they made things
lively. They burned down a number of
farm-housevLIppincott's among the num
ber; but the inhabitants, except those of
known loyal sentiments, kept at a respect
able distance from harm. Every boat up
on the beAch for miles the British de
stroyed. In about a year's time 0!d, Willetts.
and some of the rest came back, got up a
crew , raised the cutter, and found her iu
good oitler. The cannons wore rusted
some on the outside, but the beeswax had
preserved the inside smooth. They re
masted her and rigged her, cut the wasp
figure head off, replaced it by the rudely
carved head of a snake, rechristened her
the "Rattler," and one dark, stormy
night got-off to sea with lier. having ob
tained letters of marque, ran down lo the
West Indies, where they took ample re

Shore. In fact with the prizes they took.

fortune at the close of the war. The "Rat
