ESCAPED FROtt JUSTICE.
It wu a bitter nicht in ' Jinuarr a
ight when homeless wanderers on the
moors might beve sunk down froien to
death, and the marrow soemed to cooeeal

growled a fat old gentleman In the eorner
seat: "wind and weather don't effect Ht

night like this, but the iron horse keeps
straight ahead, whether the thermometer
is at sero or at boiling beat" '
Just then the conductor entered. , ,
"Ticket, gentlemen, if jon please." .'
f 1'It'i a dreadful night, oonduotor," I
said, feeling with stiBened fingers, for mj
ticket, in the breast pooket of my coat.
"Dreadful, sir feelingly responded
the conductor. "Why the brakemen
can't live outside, and so I look the other
way when they creep in, poor fellows, to
get a breath of warm air at the stove.
We haven't had snoh a night sinoe a year

Tom Blakeslee, the baggage-master, froie

' "Ave, froien to death, and she never
thought, poor thing, but what it waa

we'll soon warm it when we get home.1 It
was jut sucks night as this.". -
And the conductor opened the door, end
plunged across the coupling into the next
car, cry iug out : .
. "Hardwick." ;
h was quite a considerable city with
a handsome iron deput, flaring gas lamps,
sod (be usual crowd sronnd the p'atform,
with its hand in lti pockets and i:s oigar
ends flaming through the night.
-' Our car was nearly tho last of the long
train, and but one passenger entered it
a slender young girl, wrapped in gray
blanket (bawl, and wearing a neat little
traveling hat of gray straw, trimmed with
stone colored velvet flowers. She seemed
to hesitate, like one nnnsed to traveling'.
and finally sat down near the door.
"J'ardon me young ladv " said I, "but
you bad better come nearer the stove.",,.
She started, hesitated an instant, and
"Does this train go to liayswater 7"sho
asked in a voice so deliciously soft and
sweet that it seemed to thrill through me

"Uh, no at least not until we res oh

"We shall not be there these three
"Do we stop sgain 7"
"Only at Exmouth." .
She drew a deep sigh, seeming of re
lief, and settled baok in a eorner. By the
light of the lamp that hung in its brass
fixture opposite, I could see her face, that
of a lovely ohild. Apparently she wss

eyes, golden hair drawu straightaway

"Do vou expeol friends to meet rou at
Bayswater, my child f" I asked ineident-
"Ho, sir I am going Io school there."
"It will be an awkward hour for vou to
arrive by youwelf one in the morning."
"Uh, lin not afraid," she said with
an artless little laugh ; "I shall gostrsight
to tbe Bcimoary. '
So the express train thundered on, with
steady, ceaseless puking at its iron heart,
and constant roar.
Suddenly the signal whistles sounded,
the train began to slacken its speed.
"fcurely we re not at Uxmonih vet," I
thought, "unless I have fallen uncon
sciously ssleep and allowed the progress of
time to escape me. '

"Out of water," wag the reply, as he

the other evening that is ton good to keep,
and shall be confided to the readers of the
Utrald. The kitohen of sn excellent
family of which I .apeak is piesided over
by .a good looking domestio whom we will
call Mary Ann, she rejoicing in the at
tentive devotions of a manly young serv
snt, employed by a neighboring family,
named John. Now, such were John's
relations with the fair Mary Ann they
were I'engaged," just like anybody's folks
that he wu in the babit ot entering his
inamorata's domains without the formality
of knocking. And be it kiown that the
lord of the mansion had been absent sev
eral days and wu expected borne by the
evening train. On that evening the mis
tress of tbe house sat in her boudoir
panting with expectations of the coming
of her husband. Shortly she heard or
thought she did bis familiar footstep at
the side door, (his usual place of entry,)
and dashing down tbe stairs in the dark
ness, she precipitated herself into his
arms. There was an earnest embrace.
A loving, lingering kiss was imprinted
upon tbe lips of the representative of the
sterner sex. He answered not, but press
ed her closer to his heaving bosom. How
long this thing would have gone on is not
for us to say, bad not sn adjoining door
been thrown open by the pretty Mary Ann
with alight in her hand, and what a sight
wu revealed to all there I Mary saw her
handsome mistress In the arms of ber own
lusty lover John ; tbe mistress saw, not
her expeoted spouse, but Mary Ann's
young man ; and John well he wu so
dumbfounded (supposing he was hugging
Mary Ann all tbe time) that he couidn t
aee anything. In the midst of this
muddle her husband entered, and then
the tableau viiant wu complete 1

(Tor the Ashland Union.
The laws of 8olon declared that man
infamous who stood neutral in time of se
dition ; and how muoh more justly do tbe
diotates of tbat inward monitor declare a
man infamous, but despicably so, who in
this the hour of our country's greatest
danger supinely folds his hands, and awaits
with calm, unconcerned resignation, the
bursting of the coming storm ; yea, in a
great measure invite and urge on acts
whiob are ultimately destined to dethrone
frtedom, and establish a despotism per-
Uaps ss grand, yet u oruel ss that of Nero.
I am well aware tbat the person who
raises his voice against the corruption so
shookingly displayed in the balls of the
National Congress is Tory apt to be de
nouhoed by a class of orioging syoophants,
who disgrace the name of American citi-
sen, as either a traitor or rebel sympathi
zer. Notwithstanding all this o'alumnT T
would feel myself unworthy indeed the
name of toUier if I onuld cowardly stand
by and see my oountry, that oountry for
which so muoh precious blood bu been
shed tbst country for which so many
and heroio sacrifices have been made
destroyed and ruined in my name.
Fellow soldiers I to you let me whisper
a few warning words, and I would im
plore you by all the recollections' of our
put sufferings, by all tbe glorious hopes
we so fondly cherish for the future, to
heed, and weigh them well; they are no
vain and idle boastings, but tbey are con
ivctions which must force themselves up
on the mind of any reading, thinking
man who is in the leut acquainted with
tbe history of those nations whose names
now live, but upon the page of tbe his
torian. If you will examine the public
journals you will He tbat the radical
members of the present Congress have in
vented a plan to buy up, not only the
votes, but the very manhood of the
Amerioan soldiery. Now the question
resolves itself into this simple form. Are
you willing to aooept the price put upon
your bead 7 If you answer In ths affirm,
stive, then farewell liberty, farewell smil
ing pesos which we have courted in vain,
and weloome despotism; welcome war
with all your long train of horrors:
A bill bu been introduced into Con
gress commonly called "a bill to equalize
bounties, " but, more properly called, "a
gill to oonfer unlimited power upon mad
fanatics of the Butlxb, Steyins and
Ashley school." Tbey propose in this
bill to give to esoh soldier who hu
not already received tbat amount the
sum of 88,83 per month for tbe time he
may have seived, u an additional bounty.
Now, no one will question the abstraot
merits of this bill. It is an act of jus
tice. But the question that presents it
self is not whether it is right that we
should have this additional sum, but is it
tae to bestow it now, and is it given to

or is it held out u a Iribe f

ed with prejudice you will agree with me.
Our national debt is about two billions of
dollars (2,000,000,000), mote thsn two
hundred and fifty times the annual in
come of England when, she carried on
the gigantio wars under Cromwell's Pro
tectorship ; more than the entire outtay of
the government from the time of the
framing of the Constitution down to ths
close of Buohanan'a Administration ; an
array of figures which tbe mind becomes
bewildered in contemplating. And yet it
is proposed at this time when an ava
lanche of commercial ruin and bankruptcy
is banging over our heads, threatening to
bury us in graves u deep and dismal, u
the black lava of Yesuviua furnished to
the mighty Herculaneum to add to this
crushing weight, tbe amount of one bun
drtd millions more. Is this not a subjeot
to call forth the serious thoughts of the
patriot. Most of the soldiers of the late
war are men In moderate circumstances;
they have not their thousands invested In

systematic plan hu been mapped out to
reaoh this point. ' ThtTresident it to be
dragged before the bar of impeachment;
Gen, Grant is to be deprived of bis high
command ; the Supreme Court is to be
overthrown; and thus at one fell swoop
are those guards with whiob our fathers
fenced the Constitution to be blotted opt
The power of the Executive and the ar-
my is to be transferred to tbe hsnds of
unscrupulous partisans. Another Star
Chamber equaling in horror that of Eng
land under the First Charles will rear its
head under the dome of the Capitol, and
before this tribunal, Innocent men and
women will be hurried, and the type .of
another Jeffreys will pass the sentenoe "to

spierm and Dsnton drove Lafayette fjom
the head of the army of the French Re
public, and under the protecting wing of
that army these bed men made France to
flow with the blood of both Royalist and
Republican. Are you willing to inaugur
ate a reign of terror in Amerloa 7 If not
thiqk long and ponder well over this mat
ter. Remember that . when the sordid
puiions of msn are appealed to that the
voice of Reason ceues to sway the mind
and we rush to the support of the most
infamous outrages, upon the rights of the
weak and powerless.
One word more before I oloae. 1 re'
marked that it wu nothing more than an
act of justice, that this sum should lie
given to us, but if the giving of it is to
bring upon us tbe misfortunes I have de
picted, is it not better to postpone it to
some future day. Let us first anohor the
ship of state firmly in the harbor of se
curity, and be assured that our country
will never forget to reward ber faithful
Let us first unite the severed links
of the Union, and when that Is done, we
may safely talk of reward, but while tbat
great work lies unfinished we prove our
selvu false to the dying longings of those
comrade snd brothers whose bones are
resting under the sod of every battle
field from the Potomao to the Savannah.
You uk how this may be done 7 I an
swer by your voices and Totu. Petition
Congress, not only petition but demand
it, it is your dear bought right to do to
that the Union of the Statu be at once
completed. Vote with that party whiob
bears this motto upon their standard ; bo
matter by what name they are known.
and no longer shall we see the rights of
the people trampled upon and despised,
and the true interests of our country uo
rifioed to the whims of party. ' .

tbs gentlemen of the press in tbe follow ' '
ing sensible remarks:
Mo gathering news, it is of Conn

it is not fair to accuse the reporter of in-
wuuonaiiy garpung tbe facts of the ease.
At the best it is a hard nnaltlnn T
be spesks boldly, he offends some one.
it ne speaks guardedly, some accuse him
ot cowaraice, or being brought up not tff
speak the whole truth. If he u senti-
mental, he is called a fool. If ha speak
foroiblo language, be is called a black-
guaru. u he writes gravely, he it oalled
stupid. If he is witty, they aeouss bint
of trying to show off. If be is faneiful,
they call him a romancist. and sav ia not
reliable. If be confine himself to a brief
mention, he ia accused of not having;
brains enough to write a good artiole,
In iaot, he carries his heart , upon bit
sleeve, for jackdaws to peck at. So, gen.
