How to be a Gentleman?
Love, have I cost your life one added pain
Since I have known yon? I have
sought to bless
And light your steps lo paths of pleas
0, have I sought in vain?
I found you in an hour of fiercest strife,
And did my presence bring you blessed
And did my words fall like rich drops of
Upon your troubled life?
Beloved! have I reached yourBoul's great
Tell me if I ever yet possesed the power
To bring your deserfrlife one happy hour
And am I blessed indeed.
The time has come when we, alas! onc?
Andfthro' the old time fc?^o sorrow
Seems harder than before.
I cannot think our love is wholly lost,.
Tho' all the sweetness of our love ia
And bitter wails come where rich music
The gain exceeds the cost.
We cannot quite shut out the golden past?
Although our hearts must feel the cruel
Of pain that ourdivided lives must bring
As long as life shall last.
Love! do you think because I rightly
Here cn the verge of the lost paradise
That I can feel no sense of sacrifice
Come with the life I lost?
Have ? deserved of you one thought of
Because my sense of right must shut
From my daik life? Oh! can you ever
My love is still the same?
I cannot bear your censure. Do you think
My heart so dead that it can feel no pain
To see its chain of love lie rent in twain >
And you its dearest chain?
How gladly would I bear the weary ache
Could I but take from you your share of
Tho'thrice the burden, I wou11 not com
But bear it for your sake.
Will you ~beh^"* that the ni03t earnest
My soul haih dared, I offer up for you,
That God may guide you all life's jour
And shield you from its snares?
May we not ho^e some brighter destiny?
May not the tide that drifts our lives
Returning, bear me closer to your heart '
Beloved, answer me!
May we not hope that far beyond the roar
Of earthly winds and waves, we too

THE WARRIOR PRIEST.
AN INCIDENT OF THE CARLIST WAR.
The reverend father was just con
cluding the Mass he was solemnizing
when the prisoners were brought be
fore him. The scene was a wild nock
in the Arichulegui mountains. A
fallen r -ck, in which a gigantic fig
tree had struck its fantastic roots and
twisted trunk formed a sort of altar,
covered, in lieu of a cloth, with a
Carhst standard fringed with silver.
Two notched "alcarazzas," or "water
coolers," served the purpose of vases
to hold the wine and water,-and when
Miguel, the sexton who was assisting
the priest at the Mass, would rise
fro?-. Jil* L-neoo U -QA.arui r?k<?.*?ge the
position of the Gospels, the ammuni
tion could be heard rattling in his
cartridge-box. Near by the Carlist
soldiers were drawn up, and silently
kneeled with one knee on their white
berets or head-gear, and with their
muskets slung over their shoulders.
A bright sun-the sun is always in
Navarre on Easter Sunday-concen
trated his d ^zling heat in the hol
low of this burning and sonorous
rock, in which a blackbird from time
to time mingled the beating of its
wings with the priest's psalmody and
the sing-song responses of his assis
tant. Higher up, on the serrated
peaks, the figures of the motionless
sentinels were delivered by the sky
in the background.
It was a singular spectacle to see
this priestly chieftain ofSciating in
the midst of his soldiers every time
he turned round with outstretched
.arms to utter the invocation Deus
vobiscum his uniform could be per
ceived under his stole, and the butt
end of a pistol, or the handle of a
Catalonian dark would peep out from
under his rumpled surplice. "What
is he going to do with us?" the priso
ners asked themselves, in wondering
terror, as they called to mind so
many deeds of barbarity that had
obtained for the Oabecilla an excep
tional renown in the Royalist ar
Fer a wonder, on that morning, the
father was in a merciful mood. This
Mass, solemnized in the open air, his
military success on the preceding
.day, the cheerfulness inspired by
Easter Sunday, to the influence of
which this singular priest had not yet
grown quite insensible, eradiated his
features with a gleam of joy and
goodness. As soon as the religious
ceremony was over, and while the
sexton was cWing the altar and
locking up the holy vases in a large
cheat that waa transported from place
to place commule-back, in the rear of
the expedition may forces, the curate
approached the prisoners. There
they stood-a dozen Republican car
bineers-worn out by a day's fight
ing and by the anxieties of a night
passed among the straw of a sheep
fold in which they had been confined
after the engagement. Wan with fear,
emaciated by hunger, thrist and fa
tigue, they huddlad together like a
herd d? cattle in the slaughter-pen,
of thelhambles. With their uniforms
covered with hay and straw, their
equipments in disorder and displaced
during their flight and their sleep;
the dust that covered them, from the
top of their pompons to the tips of
their yellow shoes-all this imparted
to their appearance that sinister ex
pression of the vanquished, whose
moral disconragement is attested by
physical prostration. The Cabecilla
looked at them for a moment with an
ironical sneer, ile was not sorry to
see the. Republican soldiers humbled,

" Viva Dios! my children," said
he good humoredly, ,:the Republic
feeds her dofenders very sparingly."
You are all as lean a9 the wolves of
the Pyrenees when the mountains are
covered with snow. That is not the
way wc treat the soldiers of the Good
Cause. Would you like to judge for
yourselves, hermanos? Doff those
infamus caps and put on the white
ones. As sure as this is Easter Sun
day, to all those who will cry "Long
live the King!" their lives shall be
spared, and they shall receive the
same rations that I give to my other
Before the priest had fairly uttered
the word all the caps were tossed in
the air, and the shouts, "Ling live
the King!" "Long life to th Cabe
cilla!" were echoed by the mountains.
Poor fellows! they had been in such
mortal dread of death ; and it was
so tempting to smell the dainty viands

"Make haste and feed them," said '
t1 ! pr'' t, laughing. "When wolves '

The primera moved off, but one
of them, the youngest, stood before ''
the chieftain, in a proud and resolute '
attitude that formed a striking con
trast with his youthful features and '
the slight down, scarcely tinted, that
covered his cheek. There was some

disconcert the Cabecilla.
"What do you want?" said he.
"Nothing; I am waiting for you to
decide upon my fate."
"Why, your fate shall be the same '
as that of the others. I naced no
one in particular. The pardon is a ,

looked the boy full in the faoe.

"Try me." 1
"Whould you rather di??"
"A hundred times rather."
"So be it, you shall die!"
The curate then made a sign to the !
platoon that had been detailed for 1
punishment parade, to draw nearer c
to the doomed prisoner, who never J
so much as winced. At sight of th?3 ,l
genuine courage the soldier-priest
felt a touch of pity. "Have you no (
request to make of me? Would you
like to eat, to drink?"
"Neither," returned the youth; 1
'but I am a good Catholic, and I 1

With all solemnity then, he raised

A TALK WITH -TOOMS.
THE LEONINE GEORGIAN UNBOSOMS
HIMSELF AS TO THE SITU
WASHINGTON, December 20.
Gea?flt? Robert Toomba, of G?or'gi?,
nationally known as the Southern
fire-eater, and the gentleman who
swore he would never yield until he
called his slave-roll at the foot of
Bunker Hill, is in the city, attending
to important business before the Su
preme Court. For the last, three
years he has been visiting Washing
ton frequently, called hither to argue
cases before the Supreme Tribunal.
His law7 practice is very extensive,
and is Raid, to be more lucrative than
any other private practice in the
South. He never touches a case for
a less consideration than $5. Aa a
brilliant advocate and an able and
calculating jurist his reputation is as
great now as in his palmy political
days when he fired the Senate by his
burning rhetoric and inflamed th
Southern heart string by his impa
non. yT7e roet him
he left the Supreme
aud on presenting our card as a pre
liminary for a little talk we took a
survey of the illustrious character
while he was consideriug our claima
for an audience. He is a man of five
feet and ten inches in height, with a
full 170 pounds mathematically dis
tributed over his several limbs; his
physique is not imposing, but it is
impressing to one on the firdt meet
ing that within the casting is an iron
soul, a steel heart and a golden brain;
his face is broad and clearly cut; his
eyes are ?till gray,.and ?dune with
but little dimness, though sixty-five
years have passed since they first saw
light; his hair shows the pencilings
of time and the approach of the grave;
it is not snowy white, but thoroughly
gray; in quantity it is abundant, and
hangs in long, straight locks almost to
his collar; it is roughly kept, showing
that comb and brush are not the most
favorite utensils of his household.
His head is unusually large; the fore
head is broad and almost excessive'y
bigh; it is not a retreating but a pro
jecting and overhanging one; the cere
bellum is full and roundly developed,
making the intellectual portion of the
gentleman symmetrical and well
fashioned. Age has shown its mark
in another particular by stooping the
shoulders that were once so straight
md strong. His clothes are quite
common and fi? rather loosely. His
shirt waa not the cleanest we have
seen, and his tie could certainly have
3U3tained a better Chesterfield twist.
'Well," says he, after glancing at our
;ard, with a very polite bow and a
warm grasp of the hand, "I am glad
to see you, but I do not want to ba
isked any questions of a personal or
strong pQIitical^,-You must.
hi? country, so I should not oe u.aed
13 the oracle of the views of any sect
)r organization." After giving as
surances that no personal questions
should be introduced, we ventured on
?xe broad question as to the condition
if the South. "The South," said he,
'is poor, not on the verge of bank
.uptcy, but clear down in the abyss
)f poverty; not one decade, but two,
t will take to restore the South to
1er pristine glory and position. The
var left us in a horrible condition,
,ut by perseverence, economy, edu
ction and the roetoration of local
joverutnent, we will in time fully Te
mperate." "Who is the South in
avor of for President in 1SS0 on the
Democratic ticket; bnd if the Repub
licans are to have an executive who
vould the South prefer?"
"Well, I will answer your last
question first. If, by the ?lecrees ol'
Omnipotence, we are not to be free
or four years more from Radical
)ower, then I should say give us a
'ull lion, not a suckling sheep. Grant
s a lion. I have respect for the man,
)ecause he kills or wins. I have
lever forgotten how gracefully he
reated Lee and our soldiers at Ap
pomattox. No. Grant. is better, a
iou though he is, for the South than
s a sheep who strives to make a bear
>f himself." "I don't understand
'our figures, general." "Oh, well,
,hen, I will not explain further."
'But you have not answered my first
?uestiori." "No, sir; I must beg not
;o do so, for there are so many admi
-able gentlemen, both in the North
md in tLe South, that are so erai
lently calculated to become tue De
nocratic standard-bearer that I must
brbear to speak of them by name."

general?' "I think Judge Thurmaa
s a great man, a man of wonderful
udicial capacity, a gentleman of fine
nanner3, of polished education and
i statesman of extraordinary charac
ter and foresight."
"Who is the choice of Georgia,
general, for the nomination?"
"Georgia wants the man who can
win-the strongest man in the whole
field-a man who can weild enough
strength to demolish at one stroke the
whole system of rotten Republican
ism. But will you excuse me, as I
see my friend, Representative Hooker,
ind I desire to see him?" And so
the old, but still vigilant and invinci

Mr. Julian Hartritlffc.
In full possession of his faculties,
and almost without warning, Mr.
Julian Hartridge, for lour years a
Representative in Congi ess from the
Savannah District of Georgia, was
yesterday morning stricken down by
death. Not to a half of his associ
ates had the information come that
he was ill, and it may therefore be
faintly imagined how painful was
the shock mide by tue annouuee
.nent that he was dead. It. would be
difficult to name a member more gen
erally esteemed and beloved than
Mr. Hair ridge. His firmness as a
party man was unaccompanied by
rancor, while his fervor and skill as
au orator, his learning as a lawyer,
his courtesy and address as a deba
ter, won for him the admiiation and
respect of both political friend and
opponent. Few men can boast of a
more snccessful past, or had reason
t ) hope for Hr Lughter future. ,Had
he chosen to remaia in political iife,
the highest houors awaited him.
These, however, he voluntarily re
signed, intending to devote himself
wholly to his profession, the law. Thc
loss of such a man is a public calam
ity. He was the very soul of honor,
as gentle and modest as a child, as
! courageous as Richard of the Lion
I Heart, steadfast to his convictions
and true as steel to his friends. Such
men are as one in ten thousand.
