A lonely, mqd mound
And yet to bearts likeVpine and thine,
It shoul4 be. holy grotfo#.
Speak softly-t-qt no Oatreless.laugh,
No idlo, thoughtless jest,
Sacape.your lips, where sweetly sleeps,
The hero in his rest.
For him no reveille shall beat.,
When morning beams shall come;
For him, at night, no tattoo rolls
Its thunder from the drum.
No costly marble marks the place
Recording deeds of fame ;
But rudely'on that bending tree
Is carved the soldier's nume.
-A name-not dear to us-but ah I.
There my be lips, that breathe.
That nat,e as. sacredly. and low
As vesper,'riyer at eve.
There may be brt'hat wear for him
The mourning cypress vine _.
And hearts that in e iis lonoly-grave
A holy pilgri#i s'rine,
There may be eyes that joyed to gaze
With love- i, his oyn,

The l'etersburg index, of Wed
nes4ay, says the serenity ..of the
office of the conmanding oflicer of
this post' was agitated on yesterday,
by the apparition of four Confederate
soldiers, who gave the names and "do
scriptivo lists" as follows:
Anthony Monkas, Co. E, 52d Geor
gia Infantry, 3d Army Cbrps, A. N.
Thmas Wells, ditto.
Ja ies Brinberter, ditto.
Allan Towksberry, 43d Louisiana,
A more ragged set of mortals had
never appeared' bofore the Colonel
during all the dealings he has ever had
with thf, "ragged rebels" of Lee's
army'. Tewksberry was a sort of
walking illustration of original patch
work. His, clothing had been tied,
and sewed, and stuck together with
string, and thread, and thorns, until
there did not appear a solitary square
inchupon it'which had not ' been tied
up, pewed up, or stuck up, in some way
or other. . His companions were not
quite as badly off, one having a pair
of blue Yankee pantaloons, with only
a half a dozen rents in' it ; another
hiding the raggeduess of his grey pants
with a flowing, though ribbonry, 'an.
keo overcoat, and the other making
his decency apparent by concealing
the deects of his upper garments with
an . old oil 'eloth,. awfully bedaubed
Tewksberry stated to the Colonel
.that he and his. party stopped on the
App6inattoxi about seven miles above
the city, .fter the evacuati6n of P.
tersbutg, for the purpose, at first, of
restig ; that,they stayed longer than
they expected, and ivere cut off. They
then made a vow to live,on that spot,
and never go.home *or give up until
tho Confederiey was completely anni
hilated. The'sought out a cave on the
banks of the river, which at that point,
is very rocky, and- after some little in
dustry, succeeded in erecting for them
selves ia most comfortable home. Here
they lived-upon fish and gaine and oc
casionally roasting ears during all last
alnlnmr, and upon bread made of corn
they -had gathered from the corn fields,
and an occasional pig they found with
out:a.mother,. in their rambles during
the winter. This spring and summer
they lived as'they. did last summer, but
recently, hearing from an old negro
man that the Confederacy had un
dqultedly "gone up," they concluded
to quit thb'barbarian life and surren
der. They- marched to the city yes
terday morning. with their muskets
and accoutrements, stacked arins in
front of headquarters, sent in word
that they were the reniant of the
army of Northern Virginia, and that
they wished to surrender upon the
conditions aecorded to the main body.
CoL. iWton. coqrdially assented to their
request, gave ;thp,ij transportation to
their ihs'd 'b'de them idion.

The Riehmond aorrospondeutof the
New York 'IYmes, "E, C;," in.hisI et
ter of the 7th, relates the following
The country will remember that du
ring the winter, our Governipent re
ceived the assurrance of the hopeful
lessness of the rebel cause by coming
into possession of the testimony -of
Gen. Lee before a Committee of the
rebel Congress, which was hNever re
ported to the Houses, except in secret
session, if at ill. A full history of
the manner in which the Goverunent
obtained that information would be
more iinteresting than any romance,
but it is too soon yet to do more than
outline it. The evidenedof tien. Lee
was taken late inthe witer by tlis
Committee, and long before the Coin
mittee had determined what course
they should pursue-almost before the
ink was dry upon their notes-The en
tire statement of the reblil GeneraI,
word by word, was in j)OsScSionl of
President Lincoln at Washington.- in
the room where the Commit tee :t
was a closet, and from that closet im
mediately after the'ir adjournment
came the priceless information. (hm

surely through the streets of Ri-i

front- No comniuication that it
most lynx-eyed'could perceive l'.d
between the ian and the cart, hut ihe
former gradually changed his diree
tion and was soon.w;lking back in the
direction whence be had come. The
cart went on, renched. and pa,ed
thr9ugh the rebel camps Iyithout ilo
lestation and reached the pickou,
where it halted as a matter of cou.rse.
The beef was deAtined for the house of
a planter just beyond. the robol lines
and in plain sight of the out'posts, and
about equi-distant between them ond1
our own outposts. These explannt iins
made and a careless seaireh of the
cart mnde by thq rebol-sentry, that is
a look into it, thecart proceedcd-on its
way. Just as it neared ihe house a
small pa'ty of our lnvalry m(de a
dash at'it, a.nd to the utter surprise of'
the rebel piehets,who saw the whole
affair, our na onl'y hovered a moment.
