something remarkabk, surely a spy in the

opposing armies. Our general took "reai
pams to satisfy himself ot lhe honcstv .ind .

with the man's candid manner, and his storv
bore an air of consistency and truth. Yet he
was a soulherner, surrounded bv rebellious

to trust llie spy, to a certain extent at least
he was now sent on his way to perform hls
mission forBragg. At all events that schem-
ing general so supposed when our man's re-
j)ort was made at the rebel headquarters a
few days afterward. His information was
very acceptable to Bragg; but we strongly
question its value to rebeldom, asthe spy re-
ported only what he was told by that old fox,
Col. Truesdail, the chief of the Federai army
Pcrhaps the read-r will inquire, how can
we answer for the report thus made to Bragp?
It niay have been niore trpe and valuabh1
than we supposed. Well, there is force in
the query. However, we were then quite
confident ofthe worthlessness of the report
of our spy to Bragg, because he had nothing
else to tell him. For five days did our spy
keep himself locked in a private room in the
pnlice building al Nashville. His meals
were carried to him by a trusty servaut. His
donr was "shadoTed" constantlv bvourbest
dettctives, and so were his .teps if he ven-
tured upon the street lor a few moment
alter dark. lt was cold and bleak wmter
weather, and he toasted himself before bis
comfortable flre, read books and papers, and
conferred often with the chief of police and
his assistant, affording them, strangers as
they wre to that region of country, a fund
)le information respecting the rebels
of Eentucky and Tennessee. He was a man

and bv a route where he would see nothmg

he : " I am n stranger to you all. 1 can give

The report he carried to Bragg on
seeor.d trip delighted the latter. His officers
talked with our men freely, and after staying
at Murfreesb.ro' tvo or three days and
rnl.nc av.d walking about in the most inno
cent and ui.concerned m inner, he was again
ent back to Xashville to "fool that slow
secrans," as one of lhe rebe!
dlicers remarked. Of the imnortance of the
enort now bronght to the "slow Dutchman"
we need not state further than that it contri
buted its due weight to a decision fraught
with tremendous conseouencos tn tbe armv 1
and to the country. Marching orders were j JaQUar-V 5 third' reJect 110 recruIt ho' ac

Xow commenced a period of excessive la
bor and peril for the nameless spy. Gens.
Rosecrans and, Bragg each wanted instanl
and constant information as the armies ap
proach'.tl. The minutia' of this man'3 work
for four or live days we need not stop to re
hste ; it is easily imagined. Within that
time he e.itered t!ie rebel lines and returned
thiee times. He gave the outline of Bragg's
line of battle, a close estimate of his force,
an accurate account of his artillery and his
ea.thv.orks the movement of lhe rebel wag
oiin and railroad irains, iVr.Ac. He was very
earnest in asuring lijsecrans tbat Bragg
intended to give severe battle with superior
numbers. This i.iformation jiroved Irue in
! all essemials aad its value to the country
was inestimable. We had other spies pierc-
j ing the rebel lines at tbis lime, but thev did

We have probably all of us met with in
stances, in which a word fceedlessly spoken
agaiust the reputation of a female, has been
magnified by malicious minds until the cloud
has hecome dark enough to overshadow her
whole existence. To ihose who are accas
tomed not necessarily from bad motives,
but from thoughtlessaess to speak lightlv
of females, we recammand these hints,as wor
thy of consideration :
Xever use a lady's name in an improper
place, at an improper time, or in mixed com
pany. Xever make an assertion aboul her that
you know to be untrue, or allusions that you
feel she herself would blush to hear.
When you meet men who do not scruple
to make use of a woman's name in a reckless
and unprincipled manner, shun them, for
they are the very worst members of the com-
munity men lost to every sense of honor
every feeling of humanity.
Many a good and worthy woman's charac
ter has been forcver ruined and her heart
broken by a lie, inanufactured by some vil
lain, and repeated where it should not have
been, and in the presence of tbose whose lit
tle judgment could not deter them from cir
culating the foul and bragging report.
