On the morning of the 27th Col. Miller,

now had possession. Wi ile engaged in this

I ordered the artillery to the front, and
the battery boys were toou dropping shells
into the enemy's lines.
Heavy columns of dut indicated the
movement of cns derable bedwaof troops
on the Marietta road, fr m a mile and a half

also j-ent to them by the artillery.

"Como in, corno in; don't

A couple of Clumber spaniels herald Leigh,

Ho looks" cautiously round tho door, and
laughs lustily at the decoration of writs and

" Well. I don't feel much like dancing."
"You'll feci all risihtwhen you get there."
"Very well, I'll bo ready at'lO sharp."
"Miss Betty Dormer is in form to-night.
Sho looks splendid. I've never known a girl
that chauues so much. I met her last night
and she looked positively uiily."
"What! the girl in yellow? Curious-looking;
1 shouldn't rail her tistiy by any means
looks eleuaut pretty stiff."
"Stiff? No, I can't say that. She's got
plenty to s;ty for herself. I call her very
amusing, and she dances" here the young
fellow raised his voice and eyet to add mean
ing to his words "like an angel."
"Halloa, Leigh I"
"Nonsense, halloa! nothing of tho sort.
Come on up-stairs: I'll introduce you. I warn
you, thounli. you won't care much about hor."
"And why not?"
"She's not your sort. She'll talk and sbo'll
lauuh and she'll dance, that's all."
"And why won't I care about her, if Bbe
does all that?"
"My good fellow, wa all know you;" and,
taking his friend confidentially by the arm,
he. said, importantly: "Sho won't kiss you.
She's a perfect iceberg; you don't believe rne;
try for yourself. I've known her ever since
she's been out. Ak anybody: you'll hear the
same thing rhurmni'. hut, I repeat, an ice

Kay looked np the wtdo Staircase once more
nt the pretty girl standing in the doorway of
tho habroom, her simple, long, yellow gown
curling grnee ully round haras the movement
of the vaNe had left it.
Sho had evidently been dancing quickly
and left off suddenly, for sho was steadying
herself against a pilUr. and the large yellow
rns-snnd the ribbons in the biora of her gown
betrayed ber bre.-.llilessncs3. She was notbeau
ti ul, hut thore wa n charm about her that
was very attractive and made her conspicuous
even in that throng, L:idy Adelaide SkilweU's
bulls were always wl! attended, for she had
nil tho prettiest women in the County, good
music, an excellent floor,- and she herself al
ways received with genuine cordiality. She
asked her friends for tho pleasure it gave her
to see them, and nut, as is very usual, to "do
them off." so that her radiance reflected upou
her guests and animated them.
Kay stopped on the lauding and meditative

Mfi3 Dormer inclined her head and said,
Kay looked into her eyes intently.

to write his name against several of the dances.

Lulu, us he moved iwuy to make room lor
some other men who were waiting to talk to
her. He went some distance away and took
stok of his victim.
Tho fit ban of "Toujours on jamais,"
rang out; she looked cool and self-possessed
with the usual busy hall-roum traffic all around
her; the men running about eagerly looking
for their partners, consulting tln-ir program,
so anxious not to mistake a plain for a pretty
woman, a hettvy for a light dancer; of conver
sation there is hardly Ry question. Ho re
turned to her mid wbiked hor away; she
greeted him with uti amused smilo.
"Isn't it ugly?" she said. "It looks liko

"Yea. only the guards are wanting to show
you to your carriage."
"All tho pretty girls first-clasn, the amusing
second, tho honvy third!" Sho lauglu-d at
her own witirisui. "1 should get into tho
guard's van, I do so dislike crowds."
" I shall he the guard, then."
Who re u pon Capt. Kay stopped dancing, and
without more ado led her to a corridor, where
comfortable arm-chairs and divans temptingly
invited one to chat and rest, and great pyra
mids of ico hidden among llowurs cooled the
somewhat overheated a-mosphcru of the house.
Drawing out au ensy-chair ho put bur into it.
"There, that's better; hero wo will sit and let
them dance. We will amuse ourselves."
" You will amusewc. I shall lake a holiday.

" I can't ho amusing to you."
"Have you brought mo down here to bo rudo

" Heaven forbid; 3'ou will stop here. I will
have my way; you are comfortable and it is
very nice. There will be a rush for this placo
iu a moment, so let us enjoy tho quiet."
" Does that mean that wo are to sit hero
without talking? I can't do that for long. I
am a terrible talker."
With nn effort Kay pulled himself together.
She interested him so that he forgot tho stakes,
and it was already past 11 o'clock.
"It means that I have found you, and shall
not rink losing you again just yet; you must

to her card.

" You did not do that, did you ?" Her oyes
gleamed with pleasure.
"Aud I shall go on filling it up so there's an
eud to doubt aud uo escape."
Miss Dormer laughed and rose quickly, so
did Kay, and taking her hand pressed her again
into her seat. For a moment sho resented his
tyranny; an angry flush roRe to her face. How
ever, an appealing look from Kay scorned to
sottle tho matter, aud with a little sighshesub
sided again Into the cushions. Ho took a few
steps towards a window and stood there, won
dering whatshould bo bis next move. So far,
so good; but now, what was to como next? And
timo was flying. Turning suddenly ho met
bur eyes resting on him with a quaint, troubled
oxprcssion, and his conscience smote him. For
half a second tho man's chivalry struggled
with bis lower nature. The latter triumphed,
for ho was hard pressed for money he must
cither have monoy or must cut the service his
citroL-r depeuded on tho next hour.
"I can't understand," ho continued, truth
fully, " what I feel about you. You havo fas
cinatod mo completely." Ho seized hor hand
violently. "You littlo witch, how havo you
"What nonsense are yon talking This is
not my first ball."
For all that sho wassipping tho honey of bis
words. He saw her weakness, aud profited
" You aro wrong, you simple littlo woman;
this is no nonsense. I havo road of such things
as lovoat Mist sight sudden and ferveut."
She looked doubtful.
" Little skeptic! Yes, I havo; poetB aingof

"Novelists never draw from lifo.n'
"Now don't laugh at me, you hurt me. lam
no man of the world who can talk platitudes
with ray heart so full. Your frown cau't stop
mo; you see how it is with mo."
A tall, thin young man here interrupted
their conversation, and carried Betty off; sho
rose slowly, much disinclined to acknowledge
his claim. As sho walked leisurely along the
passage on her partner's arm, sho glanced hack
with a littlo regretful grimace that bewitched
Kay, who followed them, aud a low "Curso
tho fellow!" escaped him.
Ho went into tho deserted refreshment-room
and tossed down a braudy-aud-soda, and an
other, aud another. It sickened him that there
was only three-quarters of an hour loft him,
and hero was she wasting precious tnomonts
dancing with another. What had he achieved?
Nothing. She had charmed him, hut that was
mere feoble sentiment. His work was cut out
lor him, aud he was determined to go through
with it. Idiots called her cold, soullos. Dear
littlo thing, with her winning manner and
lovely oyes and gleaming white teeth, aud, to
crown all, with such a smile! Ho sworo to
himself that he was a funny sort of chap and,
therefore, didn't like tho job; hut what, after
all, was a kis3 to hor? and 300 would save him
from ruin a kiss and a caruor tho balanco
was distinctly uneven. If only tho brandics
and odas would drown his very small remnant
of conscionce! Ah ! at last hero she wn.
" Why navo you been so long with that idiot?
I do beiieve yoa were going to prolong my
agony and wero going into supper with him."
Sho nodded assent.
"Dou't be fretful," sho said, smiling, "you
shall hao your reward."
Willingly ho mistook hor meaning.
"Then come with me." Leaving tho crowd
to struggle down to suppor, they went through
tho hall and the boudoir to tho glass-covered
tcrraco that ran along tho front of tho house,
where the many Chinese lanterns flickered
only dimly, making tho whito statues peep
g'tost-liko from among the palms and flowers.
Hero Capt. Kay seat etl her on a marble seat
and watched her try, by rcadopting hor orig
inal indifference, to hide her timidity.
"And now, Miss Dormer, for my reward."
Her chauged manner annoyed him, for ho
calculated that at this rate it would take more
than 15 minutes to reach the climax, am! by
that timo Leigh would bo triumphant behind
" Wo could havo chatted quite a3 well up
stairs; it is cold and uncanny here. I liaio
" Who wants to chat, Betty? I want my re
ward." he urged.
"You aro having it, and it's quito your own
fault if it is not in a cosier place. I dou't like
it. Take mo back."
" Not until you havo fulfilled yonr prom
ise." " What? I have mado no promise."
"A moment ago you spoku of my reward.
You are fickle, liko tho rest; ono moment you
aro human, tho next moment you repent.
Why do you torturo me? What havo I done
toyou that you should treat me so?"
Sue roso quickly, but following her ho
seized both her hands in his, fiercoly. "I
want a kiss," he murmured.
" Yon aro mad." Her voice trembled with
tho struggle to freo herself from his grasp.
"Why did you allow mo to talk to you so
if my sudden lovo for you hadn't awakeued
some feeling in you ?"
The minutes were scampering towards tho
decisive hour. His pleading was useless; alive
to the futileness of his efforts to break through
ber conventional manner, he grew more aud
more excited, aud groped around wildly in his
mind for somo strategy, sumo lio to coax her
with. The girl troubled him; ho felt her
worth and cursed his fato that sho was nut
mado of the ordinary ball-room stuff.
"Love!" she scoffed. "Two hours ago wo
had never met; and now and now" tho
words choked her " it is an insult."
A groan escaped him, and a long, ivearysigh.
"Have wo soldiers timo for long wooing?
Here to-day and gone to-morrow." This senti
mentality, expressed in hoarse, trembling
tones, called forth a gleam of pity iu her lovely
eyes. He recognized the effect of his words,
aud a footstep in the empty room adjoining
roused him into action. At last he collected
his wits and had his plausible lio. Glibly, iu
low, gasping sentences, ho spoke to her:
"I am under sailing orders. I leavo to
morrow for Biiriuah." Sho muttered some
thing iuaudihe. "I may bo ordered to tho
front, aud if 1 wero not, tho climato is as had

WHAT A "VETERAN" IS.
A NincOTontliR or .Morn First Enlistment
Necessary to a Second.
A question of interest to soldiers and sailors of
tho latu war, aud to enlistod men of thu Regu
lar service will soon be docidod by tho Navy
Department. It relates to tho proforeuco
which appointment officers must show, ac
cording to law, to "veterans" who havo passed
satisfactory examinations for appointment to
positions under the Government.
An employe of tho Navy-yard brought tho
question to tho attention of Secretary Herbert.
He had hcon refused "preference" by a naval
ollii-er on thu ground that his sorvico in a
Maino regiment from early in 1865 to tho end
of the war did not entitle him to classification
as a veteran.
Tho question has never been definitely de
cided, although many opiuious havo been ren
dered by various ("ovornment officers, and tho
Navy Department has secured all of these, aud
also informal opiuious of other persons iu
authority. Tho War Department, Webster's
Dictionary, and tho Second Auditor of tho
Treasury practically agreoas to tho definition,
aud if these thrco authorities havo weight iu
determining tho question submitted to Secre
tary Herbert, many applicants for employment
under tho Navy Department, at least, will bo

Tho present Second Auditor of tho Treasury
gives an informal opinion that to ho enrolled
as a veteran requires two enlistments. Tho
soldiers must have served at least nino months
of the first enlistment, and then roonlisted for
thrco years or during tho war. Tho chief clerk
of tho Pension Oflico also holds that two en
listments aro req'fiiro'u".
On March 2. IoU3,"the War Department de

FIGHTING AT TUPELO..
(Continued from Urst iuge.)
extends away to onr rear, indicating that
the extreme left is being actively engaged
-by tho Confederate forces.
But our attention is also attracted to indi
cations of activity aud movements of the
enemy away up the valley to tho west, a
mile or more to the front of our right wing.
Heavy masses of troops can be seen ad
vancing, and evidences of heavy concen
trated forces preparing for another deter
mined eflbrt against this part of the Na
Soon comes a thundering roar of artillery
in our front. Concentrated masses of fresh
and resolute, confident troops swarm down
the valley and over the ridge in onr front.
It is the third assault.
It is evident that the sounds of battle to
onr left and rear are but a demonstration to
attract attention, and that a tremendous
effort is about to be made to crush the right
wing and break through that part of the
National line. As we lio close to the ground
under tho terrible storm of lead and iron,
tho stunning detonations to our right in
form us that the eight gnus of the 2d Iowa
and Gth Ind. light batteries are sending
death and destruction into the advancing
Confederate ranks, and attracting a foil
share of attention from the rebel gunners.
Those valiant ho-ts, in three firm lines-of-battle
deep, sweep through the corn. Aga n
the intrepid officers of the Union line give
the awaited command. Again that line of
bine leaps up. Line after line withers under
a pitiless fire. The cry, "Remember Fort
Pillow!" is borne to their ears amid the din.
A few moments, and the
peals forth once more.
As the Live Eagle Brigade in bayonet
charge pursues the enemy in its front through
the corn, many of them are so overcome
with fatigue and the overpowering heat
that they are unable to rnn; and as we
overtake them they unresistingly surrender,
and aro sent to the rear as prisoners.
After pnrauing the retreating Confederates
about a mile, the brigade returus to its posi
tion in the National line, gathering in the
Confederate wounded on the way back.
It is now about 4 o'clock in the afternoon,
and the third determined assault of the
Confederates upon that port of the National
line occupied by the Live Eagle Brigade has
been repulsed with terrible slaughter; and,
having met with s'gnal defeat and terrible
disaster at all points, tho hitherto victorious
and bold buccaneers retire exhausted and
disheartened from the conflict, aud the bat
tle of Tupelo is ended for the day.
The tired and half-starved men of Gen. A.
J. Smith's command have now a chance to
prepare a cup of hot coffee.
Ax an indication of the slaughter in this
day's battle, I will state that our Division
Pioneer Corps bury over 400 dead rebels in
front of our division during the evening.
The morning of July 15 reveals to the
view of the Confederate forces a mile and a
half up the valley a Union picket occupying
a Ir.gh perch on a rail fence along the top of
a levee or embankment which protects a
cultivated field from overflow in time of a
freshet from an adjoining swamp. This
picket-post is about 500 yards to the right
of the position of the Live Eagle Brigade iu
tho National line of battle to the west of
Tupelo, and almost directly in front of the
First Brigade on their right, and facing to
the right more in the direction of the swamp.
His high perch above the corn gives the
picket a clear view up the valley to the
west, and as the sun rises above the swamp
forest his bright rays are reflected from the
bright steel bayonets of moving Confederate
soldiers in tho distance. The three com
rades of his post are lying under a shelter
constructed of fence-rails and cornstalks,
occupied with that much-mooted occupatiou
of the "coffee-cooler," drinking their morn
ing cup of hot coffee, along with an ear of
roasted greeii corn, which constitutes their
snmptuous repast. The sentinel on duty
calls their attention to the warlike prepara
tions going on up tho valley a mile and a
half to the west, where the Confederate
forces of Gen. Forrest are deploying from the
timber into the bright sunlight and advanc
ing down the valley.
"Hello, there goes the first gun! "calls
the sentinel, as a puff of white smoke rises
in the clear morning air, and in a few sec
onds a shell comes screaming down the
valley, and crashing through the top of the
shelter under which the three soldiers are
lying, plows into the ground a few feet be
yond. It is a 12-pound percussion shell, fired from
n smoothbore gun, ami, striking the ground
butt foremost, it fails to explode, and bound
ing out of its hole lies harmless on top of the
ground. Another soon follows, aud pluuges
into the soft mire of tho swamp a few feet
to the right of the sentinel on top of the
fence, and others follow at regular intervals,
ranging still farther to the right, and go
tearing through the tree-tops, apparently
searching for Yankees Cn the southern
The Confederates in tnree consecutive
lines of battle are now advancing down the
valley, a splendid pageantry, with arms and
equipments gleaming and flashing in the
bright morning sun, and dazzling the eyes
with their effulgence. It is an interesting
sight to the'sentinel on duty, and occupied
with nothing of greater importance, bnt his
comrades are still too much interested in
their occupation of " coffee-cooling " to ad
rait of other matters of minor importance
sharing their attention, but continue at their
very slim breakfast.
As Forrest's advancing Iiosts are soon
within a mile of the Union lines, and our
vtdet post is near half that distance across
the cornfield to the right of our position in
the ranks of the Livo Eagle Brigade, it is
about time to be moving. And so, descend
ing from liis post of observation, the writer
joins his comrades, and all return through
the cornfield to their respective places in tho
ranks of the Live Eagle Brigade, which are
coolly awaiting the onset.
The batteries are now sending their howl
ing storm of iron upon us, and our own are
sending their shrieking gusts of grape and
wicked, bursting shell into the onrushing
ranks of gray, upon which, as those in our
front come intervening ridge, each consecu
tive line opens with their rifles. The fiend
ish rebel yell fills our ears more than all
the roar and tumultuous sounds of bat
tle. Soon their front ranks are charg
ing up tho slope along our front; now
their bayonets gleam before our eyes; their
muzzles flash directly in our faces. -"At
tention, Second Brigade! Fire by rank! I
Steady, men, aim low ! Front rank Fire !
Eoar rank Forwardl Halt! Fire! Load
at will and aim to kill. Front rank to yonr
place! Ready Aim Fire!" A seething
storm of hissing lead meets that onrnshing,
Even as before that vengeful, death-dealing
shriek, "Remember Fort Pillow!"
stiikes dismay to the rebel heart, and back
the assaulting column goes.
Thus tho well-prepared and concentrated
effort of Gen. Forrest against the right flank
of Gen. Smith's position at Tupelo on the
morning of July 15, 1SG-1, is repulsed at all
points, and to complete the defe.it, the Six
teenth Corps, occupying this part of the
Union line, charges aud drive theniat the
point of the bayonet about two miles
in the direction of Pontotock, a com
pletely routed and disorganized rabble ; the
National cavalry continue the pursuit of the
fleeing Confederates, while the infantry re
turn, and aiter completing the destruction
of the ruilroad depot and a large amount of
track, several locomotives and cars, and a
large quantity of army stores accumulated
for Forrest's army, Gen. A J. starts on
the return march for Memphis about 5
o'clock in the afternoon, and reaches Town
Crcek.a distance of about seven miles, where
he crosses the trains aud a part of his force
and goes into camp for the night.
A force of Confederates, as usual, follows
in the rear, and supposing our forces are in
a disorganiz-d condition while crossing the
river, and in a bad condition for delense,
they make a dash, and come yelling and
charging into our camp. The battalion,
composed of the remnants of the 8th "Wis.
and 5th Minn., having camped in the rear
abouthalf a mile back from the river, a lively
volley of lead comes whizzing through camp,
and the rebel yell breaks on our ear just as
we are well started into our arrangements
for getting onr supper.
However, those attending to the culinary
department continue at their very necessary
duties, while, without awaiting orders from
any officers, the soldiers snatch their rifles
and dash out to meet the Johnnies and re
peat the affair of May 20 on the Atchafalaya
by Co. G, by taking to trees and allowing
the Johnnies to charge past them without
firing at them, then tnrningaud taking them
iu the rear, march them into camp at the
point of the bayonet.
Aa the squads of prisoners are being
marched along the road pa-t our camp to
tho river they meet a detachment of the 7th
III. Cav. coming to the rear to investigate
the disturbance, who compliment them on
the result of their attempr to "gobble the
Yanks." The Johnnies answer somewhat
sarcastically that they were not captured by
" tender-;eated ' cavalry. It was the
infantry that took us in," etc.
This is the la.-t attempt made by the Con
federates to "disturb the peace," and Gen.
Smith's aimy returns by eay marches to
Le Grange, where they arrive on the 21st,
and the remnant of the Live Eag'e Brigade
take the cara for Memphis, reaching there
ou the morning of the 22d, jut one month
from our departure from that place to take
part in the Tupelo' expedition.
