Wo subjoin nil tho authen tic intelligence wo have been ablo to glean con cerning tho affairs of this Province sinco our last. On Tuesday a body of about sixty Patriots under one Mnlhist, from the district of Quebec, took up a position on tho mountain behind Ilou chorvillc, at tho mills belonging to Thcophilc Bruncuu, Advocate of Montreal. The next day, the Patriots learning from ono of their scouts, that a company of the GGth regiment was march ing in the neighborhood took flight. They left behind them threo pieces of artillery and about 300 stand of arms. On Tuesday about noon, ninety two Patriot? from Napicrvillc were marched into Montreal under a guard, and were safely lodged in prison. Among them them Morin, late Captain of the Eagle steamer, and his son. Twenty one pris oners wcro marched into town from Lachine on tho same day. Among theni were Dr. Nowcombc, his son, and a young lad named Normandeau. They were all from lJcauharnois and Chateau guay. Another son of Dr. Ncwcombo's who was a clerk with Mr. John Donegani of Montreal, was arrested on Sunday week, and with his em ploycr, has been in gaol ever since. On Monday about twenty prisoners arrived in town from Napicrvillc, among whom are fienj Lukic, a notary, and a young man named Ln- veque, a clerk in tho Sheriff's office, and son of late Protlionotary of Montreal. On Monday afternoon near St. Itcmi, an ad vanced guard of the brigade under Sir James McDonnell, fell in with three Patristoon horse back, who immediately took to flight. The guard consisted of about forty troopers and Sergeant Major Sliarpe of the Montreal Cavalry who displayed his usual gallantry, by pursuing in advance of the Hussars. On coming up to the nearest, he made a cut at him, but missed, whereupon ho stabbed him in the side, which brought him to a stand, and ho was made pris oner. A short time afterwards he was Ehot by a corporal of tho Hussars, and expired in about two hours. His name was Grcnier. Forty-two prisoners were taken to Montreal on Thursday, making the whole number in the Montreal jail about 400. Some arrests have taken place in Que bec. Among tho rest Dr. lloussuau, Messrs. LaChance, Chasseur, Teed and Connolly the two latter Irishmen. The Stanstead affair appears to have arisen in consequence of an attempt to arrest a certain-disloyal' person. JNo one was killed, but Kilborn was scveiely wounded. Charles Drolot had been arrested near Quebec, but made bis escape. Sentinel UlM'EIt GANA1M. Times and Advertiser Extra. ) Omlensburg, Nov. 12. ( Early this morning it was discovered that two schooners loaded with armed men 3ay in the river between this village and I'rcscott. Expectation was soon rife and excitement pervaded tho whole popula tion. It was obvious that iort Welling' ton was the point of attack, and our citi zens soon thronged the shore, eager to catch every movement. A. small armed steam-boat was lying at the opposite whait and the people of I'rcscott, parading up and down trom the village to the fort, gave evidence that no small degree of hubbub and excitement pervaded the population Ono of the schooners containing tho rebel armament h id gone aground during tho night and a band of armed men seized the steam boat Umtdd States, and pres sed some of the hands into their service for the purpose of getting her ofT. She, however, was not able to reach the schoo ner, as the water was not sufficient for lier draft and she came into port for a longer hauscr. As she went out again, tho Experiment (a British armed stean boat) greeted her with two shots, which misled, and she passed down tho river. About nine o'clock A. M., one detach ment of the forces made a landing on tho Canada shore about a mile below fort Wellington, and whether they wero at tacked or not is uncertain. Our opinion is that a party attacked them but retreat ed at the first firo. Men have been constantly crossing to them in small boats and up to this hour, two o'clock P. M., about five hundred arc supposed to have joined them. The great scene of excitement, how cvcr,has been on the water. The Expe riment kent up an irregular fire during tho forenoon on the schooner and United States. Watching their various revolu tions and observing the skipping of tho shot as they glanced along tho surface of the water formed u very exciting scene in a quiet village like this, Between eleven and twelve o'clock tho aul Pry, used as n ferry boat be tween this place and Prescott, went to tho relief of tho schooner that lay on tho bar, and succeeded in cettina her afloat. Tho Experiment threw in her shot at a liberal rate, anil they were so near scv shots. It is reported that tho Experiment sustained a loss of seven men-the schoon er none. After the schooner got afloat, tho Uni ted States came up and entered the har bor. As she passed the armed steamboat within thirty or forty rods.

A TIlUi: fcTOHV. Professor Krnhu, bupunntendent of the Gallery of Patniiugs in ihe city of Dussel dnrf, on ilm Ithme, wa sealed one mornine; in his study, when a servant informed him that a young man wished to sec him. Show him luther, said Ihe profetsor. Accordingly, in a few minutes, u lad nf seventeen or etgliteen years of age was introduced by the servant into the study. Seeing the dress of his visiter to be that of bailor, the prolcssor una jriiicrJ hnn ti have brought a bread-bill, wnd was about to icfur Ihe matter to his ladv, when some thing (striking m the youth's countenance and manner made him hesitate until the business was onnounccd. When nnpa rent I y about to speak, however, the lad hesitated, and cast his eyes, on the ground 'What is it you want with nie, my lad ?' raid krahe in a kind tone. "I have a book, sir," replied the youth, drawing ono at the same tune from Ins breast, "which I wish vuu io look nt, and to to buy, if it hotild nlcase you." The professor took tho proffered book into his hand, and round it to bu an lllumi naied prayer book, or ono ornamented, accordinir in the ancient fashion, with number of colored figures and cncravuifs The skill ol i ho examiner told him at once that ihe book was a copy of an edition which the Elector Clement AulmisIih. of Cnh)gn, had ordered to be thrown nff, and which had become very scarce and valua ble. But there was more in the worl before him ihan the professor inia"ined "Where did you procure this, my lad?" .aid he to the young baker. "It is a copy Irom one winch was borrowed, 1 said Ihe youth, looking down. "Not an original ! said the professor, turning over the leaves again ; "and bv whom was tins copy exe cuted ?' Tho vnuih blushed modestly as he replied, "By myself." Krahe gazed on I lie lad with surprise, and then, turning lo a book case, took down an original volume, of the Elector's edition, Willi which he compared (he copy brought by the baker's boy. The difl'etenco was ecarcely distin guishable. 'Young man," exclaimed tho professor, why do yon pursue Ihe trade which your dre.-s betokens, when you are so well fitted to succeed in a much higher one ?" The youth replied, "that il was his perpetual, in dearest wis-h; but thai his falher. hav ing a numerous family, could not afford the expense of suitable insirucnon. 1 knew your love of nr . and this embolened me to make an application to you, in the hope that you might purchase tho copy and honor mo with your coun-el and assistance." 'The modesty and cultivat ion apparent in the young baker's manner, charmed ihe stipariiiteudent of paintings, and confirmed the iniprepsion mado by the beautiful prayer-bonk. "Call mi me here lo-morrow, without fail," said 1 ho professor emphati cally, grasping I lie youth's hand and sha kirg it warmly, as he led him in the door. Early next morning, Mr. Krnhe wa on his way lo tho house of a friend who resi ded some miles from Du-epldorf. This gentleman was blessed with abundant wealth, much of which ho generously ex pended in nn enlightened patronage of ihe fine arts and llimr cultivators. Krahe knew this well, and told hnn Ihe story of the baiter's lad, showing him at the same time the illuminated prayer-book. Tho gentleman was astonished and delighted with the style if Ihe engruving. "What can I do lo nssisl that wonderful boy?" This was ihe question the professor winded and anticipated. "Lend him I wo hundred crowns to continue his studies, and I have no doubt he will become one of Ihe most distinguished engravers ol Iho day. And 1, myself, will be his security for the repay ment." "lie shall have three hundred crowns," said Ihe gentleman, "and I will have no tecunly." Pleased with his suc cess, tho professnr returned to Dnssohlorf. Young bchmilz, as t tie baiter's lad was named could have fallen at the fect of M. Krahe, when I ho latter produced Ihe means of liberal ing him from I ho oven, and of pursuing his Invorilu studies. Under lltn professor's auspices Schmilz was soon prosecuting tho science of geometry and druwing, besides storing his mind with other elements of liberal education Pur two years ho continued his studies nssi iluously in Dusseldorf, and mudo such rapid progress that Professor Krnhu saw ihu place could afford his proiegcu no farther instruction, and advised htm to proceed to I'nris. Schmilz ot course followed hi benefactor's advicn. Willi a lutter of in traduction to M. Willes a celebrated en graver in the French metropolis, and the remainder of his well economised store ol money, no toolt ins leave lor a I lino ot UusReldorf, lenving Ins heart behind Inm, without knowing whether or not H would be taken care ol till Ins return. Mure of ihis, however, hereafter. Schmilz, now n fino looking voung man of twunly. accomplished hn journey lo Paris in safely ; but so unxiniH had he been to live frugally by the way, that he had done Ins couslilntion injury, and he fell ill immediately on his arrival, lie got him elf convoyed to n monastery, wheuj every attention was paid to him. incidental j expun-es, however, during Ins long con tinued illness, swallowed up the whole of the money upon which he depended for the commencement nf Mis studies. When he did at Inst isuu from I he monastery restored to health, he was pciitiyless, and his pride, or both fulness, or perhaps a mixture ol both, forhidu Ins milking any application to Mr. Wtlles in the character of an indi gent beggar. Poor SclunHz now wandered about the streets musing on the unfortu nate corn it ion lo which he was reduced, ond ignorant in what direction to turn lor his dally bread. Accident determined his course, une unv ne was mei oy iwo soi. diers of the Swiss guard, one of whom gazed atlenitvely at hnn; and exclaimed. Friend, are you not a iiermatij" "I ntu. What quarter do you come from ?" "From the neighborhood of Dusseldorf, was Schmilz's reply. 1 You are my country man," said the soldier joyfully, and then inquired into his condition. Schmilz Wild what had befallen him, and that as he could not think of being troublesome to or depen deni upon any one, he was in waul ot a livelihood. The soldier advised him strong ly to enlist in the guards, assuring hnn thai lie would have abundant leisure time to prosecute any studies lie liked. Alter little consideration, Schuntz, seeing no better course open to him, followed the soldier's advice, and enlisted for four y jars in ihe Swiss guards. The captain who enlisted him was struck with his appearance, and inquired into the story. Tins was unexpected means ol "ood to the new soldier ; for the captain shortly after, took him to Mr. Willes, and introduced him to that, eminent artist The consequence was, that every moment of leisure time which Ihe service would permit, was spent by Schmilz in pursuit): ihe art of engraving under Mr. Willes who appreciated his talents, and was ex tremely kind lo him. Thus did the four years of soldiership pass agreeably awuy and when they were ended the young man continued two years longer to study Ins art. He then returned lo Dusseldorf, loaded with the most honorable attestations uf his skill, industry, and probity. Professor Krahe received his protegee Willi open arms, being equally delighted with his mental and scientific progress, as with ihe improvement which a military life had made in his personal appearance. Mr. Krahe himself was the first to secure the professional services of Schmilz, engaging him to work in the cabinet. Every suc cessive day Ins conduct endeared him more to the professor, who acquired for Inm a father's affection. Two years passed away in Ibis manner alter Schmilz's return lo DiiFseldurf, when, ono day, he was invited by the professor to an entertainment to meet a party of friends. Schmilz presented himself at the appointed hour at Mr. K ratio's, and found many persons assembled whom he knew, and whoso friendship he had named. Seating himself bv one of these, Schmilz began lo converse with him. Aflcr a little discourse, tho gentleman cast his eyes to the top of tho room, and wins percii lo the young engraver, 'How pale the professor's daughter looks. One would have thought Henrietta would have mus tered a belter color for such an occasion as t his.' Had the sp akcr al the moment turned his eye upon the party he addressed, fcscd the truth 'Have you over intimated to my daughter tho statu of your nfTectione? sitd I ho professor, after a pause, in which anxiety ami sympathy were depicted on his features. 'Never,' answered Schuntz. with energy; 'not in the mo.-t distant manner. Could I have dared, humble as I nm, to have spoken of love to tho daughter of my patron and benefactor ? I wa9 contented to sue her; but that sat isfaction,' continued he. with a sigh, 'I will not long have now !' 1 lie benevolent professor tried to soothe ond comfort the youth ; assured him of hia afi'"ctinn thnl he loved hint as his own child but counselled him to subdue hit) passion, as it would soon ho wrong, crim. iual, to induce it. Schmilz promt-ed, and it rove lo obey him- Bui the struggle was too much for his constitution. He fell ill ; and the illness wus destined to be a long one. When it firFi attacked hirn, as it wns impos-ible lo conceal from Henri etta Iho bodily stale of one who hud long been her friend n rid companion, professor Krahe I bought it best lo lull her the whole truth nt once, deto'innnng, it Me lonnU r now averse to fulfil I he engagement, winch had been entced into when she was very young, and beloro Schmilz's return to Dusseldorf, that he would tako some means to ur au on i lie proposed match. But Henrietta heard the intelli gence of ihe young artist's passion merely with a sigh, and rose and !elt her la ther's presence. Her father did not know xactlv what n think ol the svmtotn. When he saw her again, however he tho't he could s"e that she had been weeping Ho i hen endeavored to discover the state of her mind ; hut she pat a stop lo it by saying firmly, 'Father, 1 am betrothed. Schmilz,' she continued, with a sigh, 'has my pity, but duty and honor ' Sha left tho professor to conclude the sentence hiinscK. Love is not so harsh lo his votaries, as ha is sometimes said to be. Henrietta's betrothed returned to his parents, and in his letters written afterwards to his mistress he let some hints escape hirn that his pa rents now s'artcd some objeclions to the match. Henrietta was eagle eyed. In an answer returned by next post, she gave her lover perfect liberty to follow his own inclinations, renouncing every claim result ing from his promise. The result was tho gentlfinaii accepted of the permission sha gave ti mi. No woman likes even tho semblance nf desertion ; but we will not say whether Henrietta lek glad or othcrwiso on tins occasion. Sufiice it to ?ny. that on the day on which her late lover's letter came, she entered her father's study just when twilight was setting in. 'Well my girl said the professor, kissing her fondly when she came in, 1 have been idling fur half an hour, musing upon poor Schmilz. But I rnn-t have candles, and to my wri ting.' So saying, hestroiched his hand to the bell; but Henrietta caught it, exclaim ing, 'Oh no. dear papa, it is too early for candles! You study loo much ; and I wish to speak with you.' 'Well, my love, wont we be still the better for lights. " 'No no,' said she, sitting down by his side. After a pause, she began, 'Papa, I know you love Schmilz ' 'I do,' said the professor, 'and would to Heaven, you could, and did love him too. Ileniiettn ?' The young lady let her head fall on her father's bhoulder, as she replied, 'I can and do, papa ! Ev ery obstaelo is removed, and Henrietta will bu Ins. if she can promote his felicity!' The professor read the letter which his daughter gave to him, and kissed her again and again, with dehglit. Il was not long ere the joyful fu'her was by the side of Iho slowly recovering Sclunhz, and informed Inm of ihe change winch had occurred. The good news was like to have proved as fatal as his despair. But ho recovered from his emotion, and ere long was led by his benefactor to the presence of Henrietta, ono evening of whose company cheered and he would have seen a face in an iiis'anl i restored the artist to something like a new grow much paler than that winch caused state nf Ueuig. his remark. His words indeed had excited an extraordinary emotion in the heart of Schmilz. As soon ns il subsided a little, the hitler asked his friend what he alluded to as distinguishing this occasion from others.
