"Out in tho Cold."
DV TBRLLOi
Thcso lines were suggested by reading an extract
from a Northern paper, in which the editor took oc
cusion to Bay substantially, that the .South was out
the Union, "'111 the cold," and he did not care, if
she was allowed to remain there and ??freeze,'' as it
was no more than she deserved.
Out in the cob?, boys, arc ye fcf, t0 freeze,
Except"yb cringing creep, on heuded knees
And, in submission's craven tones, implore
Your gen'rous masters, to unbar the door?
But, Southrons?to your jewel, Honor, hold,
And uncomplaining, nobly, stand the cold.
Out in the cold,?two winters' winds arc past,
And still, the fatul die remains uucnsl?>
Its storm.*, its snows, its tempests were in vain :
With scarce a in^mur, ye have borne its pain?
Then, why muy not the story thrice be told,
Another .winter ye have bJrne tho coldt
Out in the Cold?Ah! could the gallant braves
Who sleep?Virginia?in thy silent graves
Awake, and hear thy woes, our mother-laud,
Mcthiuks, they'd once again, embattled stand,
To meet the tyrant minions on the plain,
And die once more, because they've died in vaiu.
Out in the cold?list not, Immortal souls :
We would not have you I.far the dirge, that rolls.
In solemn cadence?like a funeral knell,
Around the sunny homes, you've loved so well?
'Twould be but fresh-nwuk'ning cause of pain,
To know, undying, that you've died in vain.
Out in the cold?Ah ! who shall date to say.
That, as that widowed mother kneels to pray,
ltcsido her rebel hero's dying boy.
And her most precious fount of earthly joy,
That seraphs conic not, 011 bright pinions free,
To name the lost child?immortality.
Out in the cold?tny'mot norland, to tliee.
Shall 1 not lift my eyes in (ears, to see
Thy fair limbs, bleeding fvoiu the tyruui'- chains !
Look tyrant, look, upon those racking pains;.
And if thy heart melts not?a I t ought Khan
Claims clearer title to the name of man.
Old**!!! the cold?ye go Is ! how long, h ?. lo; ~
Shall Ossa be heaped with a nation s wrong?
Oh ! is there uo end to a tyrant's might .'
And gleams there no star in a nation's, u'ght ?
Shall faults of the past, ne'er cotue from the bait,
And ileasnn guide no more, the soul of man?
Out in the cold?Ah! Southrons, nevermind:
The scions of tho martyred dead, shall bind'
Unfading wreaths, upon that mother's brow,
So wan and des'lute?so down-trodden now?.
For, U en son yet shall guide the souls of men.
And thiugs shall be, as Iboy should be, again.
'Out in the cold?ohcer up, boys?bid Despair
Trim hi.s dark wings, and mount to upper air?
The road's exceeding long, that never turns ;
And Vesta's fire still on the altar burns?
Hope on?for, ere those sacred fires shall wane,

CHAPTER IV.
THE INTERVIEW
'Alice Drake ttiok tlic young man by the
hand and walked with him up through; the
garden. "When thoy reached the sitting-room,
Wilton Cunningham cloned the door, and then
taking a scat, he drew Alice to his side, and
told her all that had transpired. His voice
was firm, for he had schooled himself to the
task.
"And now," he Continued, as he finished his
St?ry, l,I have thought, Alice, that it would be
bettor for inc to tell you this than to have it
conic to you from other lips. 1 know not how
it will turn out, but 1 fear that I shall be un
able to disprove Mr Randall's) charge. In all
probability I shall this evening be called before
'Squire Bullard tor examination, and the event
cannot but cast a foul stain upon my reputation.
It is a painful thing.to be situated thus, for
others must sutler besides myself; but you,
Alice. I would free from?"
Wilton hesitated and wiped a tear from his
eye, but he soon gain his sell-posse.-sinn, though
his voice fullered as he conti tied :
"You know our relations, dear Alice, but if
this stain falls upon ine. I must release you
from your vows. One so pure as you should
not he united with a man upon whose name
even a suspicion of crime can fasten itself. It
is like taking my life itself thus to?"
uHold, Wilton." uttered the lair girl, who
had managed thus far to keep back her tears.
"Arc you guilty of this thing"'"
"It is cruel to ask me that. Alice."
"I ask it. nevertheless."
'?As there is a Cod who hears me now, the
thought, even, of such a crime never entered
my mind. The person does not live who can
^ay-,with. truth-thai.. .1 ,^vy??-^?,?ti^?hai?iiiaMifc
! "her."
j "I believe you." returned Alice, hiving her
; hand upon Wilton's shoulder and gazing aflcc
tinnately into his lace. "1 Ituow you. and
j knowing you as I do. 1 shall never forsake you.
When 1 promised to be yours for life. 1 did it
upon mature deliberation, nor did I mean that
the fust time the cold breath of slander or sus
picion fell upon you, that 1 should throw you
I off."
?Noble, generous girl!" murmured Will on.
as he wound his arm about her. ? this takes
away half the sting; but you must remember
well what you do."
"I hiuni- what 1 would d.i. Wilton. Ah, if I
could forsake you in your tmblo, how unwor
thy should I he of the sacrttl office of xci/c!
Rut tell me. have you no suspicious ? You say
that for some time various small .sums of money
have been taken from Randall's drawer."
? Yes. dearest ; fVrr over a year there have
frequently been discrepancies between cash re
corded and the amount in the drawer : but. in
many eases, it has been the result of Mr. Ran
dall's own carelessness in taking money during
the day for small purchases without giving a]
minute of it ; but. some instances. I know that
money has been stolen."
"And have you no suspicions of who took j
it ?" :isked Alice, with much carncstnc&s.
"I do not know who took it. and it would he
ungenerous to tell of mere suspicions."
"Well, I have my suspicions." said Alice.
"I was in the Store lifter you went away to Blip
last Wednesday evening, ami 1 waited some
time for yon t.'. come back, but 1 got tired ; so
I came away without seeing you."
"Weli," utteici t?? jnungmah. tu almost j
breathless anxiety, '-did yon mc anything out!
of the way ?"
"Not that 1 know of; but while 1 was there.
I saw Mr. Randall go iiwsi) from the de.-k
where you write, ami put some heavy pieces of
silver into the money-drawer, and when he
went out of the store, I went too. for 1 did not
like to remain alter he had gone."
"That was probably the money he marked,*
and it was after he had gone ho.ta that that
money was taken*, for when the drawer was
taken out of the safe, the next morning, he
says it was gone ; and it was after that, too,
that I paid Mr. Willcy."
For sonic tiiuc Alice Drake- sat in deep
thought. Her lingers' ends were placed upon
her brow, and weighty ideas scorned revolving
in her mind. At length she raised her head,
and in a hopeful tone, she said :
??You have many friends, Wilton, and some
who may help you iu this emergency. I will
myself seek them. Ah. there goes 'Squire
Rullard now. Von had better return to your
own cottage, and, trust inc. a woman's wit may
he a match for them all."
"Hut 1 cannot consent to this. Alice, that
you should?"
"Let inc. have my own way this time," inter
rupted Alice, ? and I aKftirc you that you .'hall
' not often find me so stubborn. The merest ac
cident in the world may turn the whole currcut
o| affairs."
j| "Well, he it as you like," returned Wilton,
as .-ho arose from his scat, "though it will be a
nicety accident that Bottles this in my favor,
though God knows it would be a juBt one.",'
CHAPTER V.
.THE DENOUEMENT.
Shortly afterwards young Cunningham kissed
Alice, and then turned his steps towurds his
home. Ho hud been in the house but a short
time before be saw Alice ride post alone in her
father's wagon. He had not yet dared to tell
his mother that he expected to be taken to a
lawyer's office, and rather than she should know
?of it till the result hud appeared, he resolved to
seek Mr. Randall ore he should be scut for, and
with this view ho told his mother merely that
lie. was going- to the store, and then left the
house. Before he reached the store, however,
he met the deputy-sheriff, who already held an
order for bis arrest, Mr. Randall having en
tered a complaint.
.^It was not until after dark that Wilton Cun
ningham was convoyed to the office of Mr. Bul
lard,- and who,'! be arrived he found not only
Uiiaccuser and bis witness there, but also sev
eral'of the towns-people besides.
jjjThose who know anything about the prelimi
nary examination of a complaint in one of
ou^r country lawyers' offices, understand pretty
well the latitude that is generally given to not
only witnesses, but also to plaintiff andi defen
dant. ?
.Mr. Bullard opened by reading Mr. Run
(hill's charge, to which Wilton, of course, re
sponded ;,uot guilty." Randall then made bis
statement in full. His sou. Lymail, was called
upon to testify to the tiiet that money had fre
quently been stolen from his drawer. Just ns
young Randall was delivering his testimony
with a brazen-faced, off-hand manner, old farm
er Jones entered the office, followed by Alice
Drake and Murk Loud, the latter of whom was
a hostlor in Mr. Willoy's stable. *
jg^KajT 1 -ab'^'ti jiniT^r *'h^n br ?aw Jouo? ou
ter, fur he did not like the man at all ; but
Lynmn betrayed the most trepidation, and
why will shortly he seen.
Mr. Willcy was then, called upon for his evi
dence, which he gave with precision and confi
dence.
' This thing looks rather dark," remarked Mr.
Bullard. bending a sort of compassionate look
upon Wilton.
4i 'Squire," said fanner Jones, in his usual
blunt way. rising slowly to bis feet, "I don't
know much about your law regulations, but 1
I 'spose you wouldn't have no objections to my
asking a few quest ions just about as I've a
! mind to V
! "Certainly not," returned the lawyer, with
an air of deference, for farmer Jones was one
of the most honest, upright and iufluenti.il men
in the town.
I "Well, then, 'Squire ; 'bout an hour ago Miss
Alico Drake come driviu' up to my bouse, an'
asked mo if I didn't remember of bein' in
Randall's store last Wednesday ni^bt, an', of
course. 1 remember it. though I don't 'gposu 1
should ever have thought of it agin in the
world, if she hadn't 'ave mentioned it. Well.
I come right down with her, and at ween us
both we've got up a considerable story. Now, I
slmuld just like to ask Mr. Kamlall where his
son was Sunday 'fore last."
"lie was at P-Hill, to attend meeting
all day," returned Kamlall; but when he saw
how bis son trembled, be evinced some strong
misgivings on that point.
"Raytlier guess you're mistaken on that
point." said .Jones. "1 saw him an* old Samp
son's b>y. with one of Mr. Willcy's wagons
post in' off airly iu the inornin' in another ?II- j
rectiv:,i a" ' '' ? mistaken, they spent a
good part of the day "h Thompson's Pond a
fishiu'."
Mr. liandall turned sharply upon his son.
and ask:d if that was true. Lynmn at first dc
liicd the gentle insinuation, but. at length, he
was obliged to own it.
"Well, that's so much gained," continued
Jones; und then, with lawyer-like tact, he
turned to .Mr. Willcy. "Mr. Willcy," said he.
?bow do you know that Wilton .Cunningham
gave you that crossed dollar that liandall lost
out of his drawer V
"Because no one else paid me any such mon
ey on that day." answered Willcy.
"Where did you put that money when you
got it '("
"In my drawer."
"And doCMi't somebody elso ever go to that
drawer?"
"No one but Mark Loud."
"Well, continued Jones, "last Wednesday
night I left my horse in your shed, and after
the store was shut up 1 went after hiin, and
just as I was onhitchin' him, Mr. Lynmn Han
dall steps in and pays Mark Loud for the horso
he had the Sunday hefore, though ho didn't
notice me when he did it. When I turned into
the rdrcct, T . nv Alice Drake, au' I offered <rt
carry her home, though I had to go sonic dis
tance out of iuy way. As we were riding
aloug, we got to speaking about Randall, an' 1
(told her all about Lyman'? ridin* off Sundays,
an' that's they way she happened to hit ou ma
in this case."
"Rut what has all this to do with my com
plaint ?" asked Randall, in considerable pas
sion.
"Only just this," returned. Jones, with a pe
culiar 15c-: "It was your son that paid that
crossed dollar t
t'lt's a fact," said Mark Loud, Inur ing up
from his seat. "Lyman Randall paid it to iue
for the horse, and I put it into the drawer
with sonic of the others, and if you'll look on
the book, you'll find that I gave him credit fru
it."
. "I remember now that I noticed the credit,"
said Mr. Willcy ; "but there was only the same
number of silver dollars that I put in there
myself, for I counted them."
"Because I gave ono of them to'Snm Ken
dall in change fur a two dollar bill,*" explained
Mark, "and that was before I took the dollar
of Lyman."
"And how do you know that it was the
crossed dollar you took of my son 1" asked Mr.
Randall
"Because I took particular notice of it," re
turned Loud. "You see when the Portland
stage got in, and after the horses were put up,
the driver wanted to conW and evjen' with me to
sec who should' carry the moiL up to- the- post
office; sol lookout this dollar?for I hadn't
had a chance to carry it iuto the office,?and I
agreed to let him guess on the date of that, und
when 1 come to look at the figures. I found a
little cross that looked as though it had been
cut in with a knife, and one end of it catue
right down to the date. If that's the dollar
that Randall's got#you'll find it just as I've
said."
This produced quite a marked sensation j and
when Mr. Randall was asked to show the dol
lar, he freely acknowledged, though with accu
mulated wrath, that there was no need of it.
'?Then, of course, you withdraw your com*
plaint," said Bullard.
"Yes." returned Rand.-vJl; and then turning
savagely upon his son, he hissed out from be
tween his clenched teeth : "Lyman. you scamp,
you shall suffer for this. Come, six, aud I'll
teach?"
Rut the hoy did not choose to hear any more,
for quickly turning at bay. he retorted :
??Now look here, father, you'd better keep
dark, for 1 think lean till some things its mil
as you.'"
Klias Randall was humbled in a moment, and
like a whipped cur. he turned to leave the
office ; but before he did so he beard farmer
Jones remark :
'?Like lather like son. The boy's learned
his lesson well!"
There were tears in Wilton Cunningham's
eyes when lie took Alice by the hand, but he
could not speak ; nor could she. for her excite
ment had been too great; but of one thing I
am sure : in.loss than two short months, they
had spoken to some purpose, for they had
become one for life, ami on the Monday after
wards. Wilton opened a large store with a
freely-loaned capital of eight thousand dollars.
Just seven years have passed away since then.
Mr. Randall lost all his customers in loss than
a year after the opening of the new store,
for, through Cunningham's honest trading, the
people fouud how shamefully they had been
cheated, and the latter has not' only cleared
enough to refund his borrowed capital, but he
has gained a large circle of true hearted friends,
such as true honest worth never fails to win:
Lyman aud Randall was just in time to take
the fit>t "Oregon fever;" while his father went
to Canada, and entered iuto horse trading, but
lit) one ever bought a horse of him the second
time, and he has surely lived to appreciato the
old ailage: ? lie who swims in sins, will sink
in K;o?'cr sorrows."
AGRICULTURAL, &C.
[From the Southern Cultivator.]
What an Old Man Would Do if he 'were
now young.
lie would marry a clever, respectable, good
looking, intellectual, healthy, well connected
young woman, and love, her and serve her with
the utmost fidelity,'tis long as life should con
tinue her to him as n wife. If any fool does
not understand the sense mid duty and pleas
ure of this, upon the naked suggestion, he would
not understand the argument in support of it,
and 1 therefore pre tcrroit it.
IIo would try, in an humble modest way, to
do the will of Godx and in his relations to all
men, lovingly to "work righteousness.
He would by some honest means?for cash,
or on a credit?by purchase, gift, or inheri
tance, oirn a "tract", of land in middle Georgin,
or 3 quarter sections iti Alabama?not less than
200 acres, nor more than 210. Here he would
fix his earthly home, for the whole tet;m of hi*
natural/ife, and having plain, substantial houses
and cowDiotHous puthouscs and shelters, with
one hundred and fifty*acres of open land, be
sides orchards, garden, patches, lote, he
would begin to cultivate his farm.
This farm we would divide into tJirc*' !on,^?l
fields, of 50 ncrcB each, and employ 8 [ bauds,
and give them 4 good mules, and a yokt- of
oxen to cultivate it with.' f 9*%
He would plant 1000 walnut trees/ ;THfre\jty
or thirty years hence, their, yield of h?fs' dtiil
timber would be worth-a large Bum'. " ";
He would plant 5 acres in fig trees, an J learn
how to dry, preserve and pack the figs into
boxes for market.-^After a few years the pro
ceeds would be a profit of a thousand - dollars
annually. [Fortunes will yet bo "made" iu the
preparation of fig preserves and" pickles a>the
South, for Northern markets.?Ed. So. Ctl.T..]:
He would plant 5 acres in Scuppernong Grape
Vines. In a few years the. wine would he worth
several thousand dollars annually.
He' would plant 5 acres iu Sugar. Cane, and
manufacture his own Syrup and Molasses,' and
a little surplus.
He would cultivate 5 acres of Cabbage,.'with,
the plough, aud use them in making slops for
milch cows, and to fatten hogs. Thisj with
plenty of turnips, sweet potatoes, (none are half
equal to the yam) and hay, wouldjalways secure
milk and butter iu abundance.
He would level his land?gatlferall the loose
rocks to the low places where the soil w?u>i??i
wash out of his fields, and if rock was at liaud^.'
would make rock fences at those places, so that
no soil should escape, and no rain-water citheri
He would cut his ditches on ? perfect dr.ve^
draw the dirt on the iqtpcr side, fill Up'loVJ
places, use the' ditches for guide roics,' aud to .
protect bottoms from inuudation, aud lie-would
manure the hilt-tops:
He would manufacture ten tons of compost,:.
at cost of not' more than one ton of Guuno, of
any popular Superphosphate,-possessing, in value
to crop and soil, twice the value of the single
ton of the commercial manure- In another
article, he will tell something about ht>w- to do
this.
He would read the Bible, pray iwUylv^mltli >
his children?comfort and encourage his wife
?be just aud liberal to his laborers?avoid
polit ical prejudices, and the '. biltcriu-M of ? party
strife, and as to the corrupting, demoralizing
diabolism of religious sectarianism, he would'
try to forgat that huaiaa aature is capita
of it.
He would do his part to respond to the
smile of God, end make his couutry a garden
?a home?a temple?a tower of strength !
