'fhe following portia v. inion, of * re-1
nun kable and well rviiioudfred incident in '
*~ one-of the Wilderness tights, i? from the
pen of the distingiusbed "Virginia poet, ?
John lt. Thompson, now i esiding hi Lon-1
don. lt wa? written for. ami appears in |
the Crescent Mvuttilifi
1?C<s to tlae lt car.
Dawn of a pleasant morning in May
broke through thc Wilderness, cool and
While, perched hi tire tallest tree-tops, Uic
birds ? i
Were carolling Mendelssohn's "Hongs with?
Far from thc h?truts of men remote,
The brook brawled on with a liquid note,
And natnro, ?ll tranquil and lovely, wore
The smile of the spring, aa in Eden of yore.
Little by little, as daylight increased,
And deepened the roseate flush in tho!
Little by little, did morning reveal
Two Long,.guttering lines ol steel:
Where two hundred thousand bayonets
Tipped with the light o? the earliest beam,
And the faces aro sullen and grim to see,
lu tho hostile armies of Cirant and Lee. |
AU of a sudden, ero rose th? sou,
Pealed on the silence, the opening gun |
A little white puff of smoke there caine,
And anon the valley was wreathed in flame. ;
Down on tho left of the rebel lines.
Where a breastwork stands ina copse of
before the rebels their ranks can form. j
The Yankees have carried the place by
Stars and stripe? o'er tho salient wave, j
Whore manv a hero lias found a grave.
And the gallant Confederates strive, in vain j
The ground they have drenched with their
blood to regain!
Yet louder tho thunder of battle roared
Yet a deadlier lire on their columns poured;
Slaughter, internal, rode with despair.
Furiee, twain, through the smoky air.
Not far off, in the saddle there sat.
A grev-bearded man, with a black slouch
Not mnch moved by thc tire wa? he,
( alni and resolute Hubert Lee.
Quick and watchful, he kept Iiis eye
On two bold rebel brigades close Ly
Reserves, that wero Htanding (and dying)
Where tho tempest of wrath hoppled over
For still with their loud, deep, bnll-dog
The Yankee batteries blazed away,
And with every murderous second that
A dozen brave fellow?, alas! fell dead.
The grand old grey-beard rode to the ?pace,
Where death and bis victims stood face to
And silently waved his old slouch hat -
A word of meaning there M as in that.
"Follow mo. Steady! We'll save the day;"
This was what he seemed to say;
And to tho light of his glorious*eye
The bold brigade thus made reply:
"We'll go forward, but you must go back,"
And they moved not an inch in tho perd?
ons track ;
''Go to the roar and we'll scud them to
Then the sound of the battle was lost in
Turning his bridle, Robert Lee
Rode to the rear. Like the wave? of the
bursting the dyke? in their overflow.
Madlv his veterans dashed on the foe.
And backward in terror that foe waa driven,
Their banners rent and their columns riven,
Wherever tho tide of battle rolled
Over the Wilderness, wood and wold.
Sunset, out of a crimson sky,
Streamed o'er a field of ruddier dye,
And the brook ran on with a purple stain.
From the blood of ten thousand foe men
Seasons have passed since that day and
Again o'er its pebbles the brook run? clear.
And tho field in a richer green is dro?t,
Where the dead of the terrible conflict
Hushed is the roll of the rebel drum.
Tho sabres aro sheathed and the cannon.-.
And fate, with pitiless hand, ha? furled
The Hag that once challenged the gaze of
Hut the fame of the Wilderness fight abides;
And down into history grandly rides.
Calm and unmoved, as in the battle bc sat.
The grey-bearded man, in the black slouch
I told you, Tom, that this room
was at the end of a long corridor.
At tho lower end this corridor was
crossed by another, a shorter ono,
from which the stairs descended.
As my xinele and I turned the corner
proceeding towards the stairs, a door
opened suddenly before us, and two
womanly figures appeared on the
threshold, thrown forward by the
lire from tho chamber behind them.
Lucretia Fitzgibbon, with her arm
thrown gracefully around the waist of
Peg; O'Shaughnessy. Did the star of
all tho country drawing-rooms me:;n
to patronize tho poor little black
sheep from the mountains on this her
first entrance into society? The
doors of their chambers stood oppo?
site on th~ passage. Lucretia had
kindly fluttered across, introduced
herself to the trembling debutante,
and taken lier under her wing.
.'Good Lucretia!" T had almost cried;
but the hall lights fell full on the two
tacos as they descended, and I
thought the sparkle of her eyes and
teeth more false than they had
seemed before. My lady was
dressed in voluminous folds of amber
silk, bedizened with laces and dia?
monds; Teg was dressed in a straight
black gown of an antiquated brocade,
which sho must have ransacked from
some great-grandmother's wardrobe,
htanding on somo dim upper passage
of Castle Shaughnessy. She had
folds of crimped white muslin at her
throat and wrists, and a black ribbon
twisted about her head, gathering np
her crisp hair, and tied in a little
knot upon her crown. As they
?wept down before us into the liglit
below, my Uncle Giles pinched my
arm so wickedly that I started:
I. I ,gggBBf?g
^ Who .jp |b?t wora?h,T a?p?iew?
Bj all tbe diaiuonds that ?ver blazed, ?
I have not seen such a woman ?nee
I was a boy!"
4*Which?" I asked.
"Not the "flashy yellow one," lie
answered, "but tlie ono with her
head tied rip. "
This was tho beginning of my nu?
de's admiration for Peg. In tho
drawing-room we found the ladies in
full expectation, and quite prepared
to make a lion of him. The news of
the wonderful coffer had reached
them, and th* fetching of the smith
caused no little excitement. It was
curreut that some extraordinary locks
were to bo put upon the chamber
doors, of which only Giles Humphrey
and his servant knew the secret, and
that the windows were to be barred
outside like th*? windows of a prison.
Even Peg's arrival was now a matter
of small importance. There never
was such a hero as Giles Hamphrey
that night. He sat in the warmest
corner by the "fire, and monopolized
the snuggest chair. He w ore rings
worth a king's ransom, and, auda?
ciously defying custom, wore a gown
lined with the costliest fur. Ho sup?
ported his feet on u foot-stool, while
his black servant wrapped his knees
iu a royal rug. Then ho spoke to
the ladies with a mischievous rude?
ness, while his eyes paid them
homage every moment. And then
he might virtually be said t > be sit?
ting on that wonderful coffer stuffed
with riches, which no doubt uH
present saw in their mind's eye sup?
porting his puny limbs, but which, in
reality, stood modestly hidden in it?
corner ap-stairs under the .-helter ol
a gorgeous piece of tapestry, flaminy
in gold and colors. And when I con?
ducted its owner to lus chamber that
night, tho black man wa? squatting
upon it, with crossed legs, like a gro?
tesque carving on a whimsical pedes?
tal. He turned a somersault upon it,
by way of obeisance, when his mas?
ter appeared, and, while I stayed,
presented a long cane, from wliicl:
Giles Humphrey drew a glittering
"This is my bedfellow," lie said,
grinning over it, and placing it un
der his pillow. "I hate locks, foi
fear of fire," with a glance of alaru
over his shoulder at the blazing
grate. "I will not be locked up. tc
run thu risk of being burnt to death
But if any of the people in vom
house think to meddle with my littli
box over there"-he raised his voice
and seizing the sword again, bran
dished it at the black servant, au*
chased him out of the room, bidding
him go and tell about the weapon ii
the servants' hall.
From the time of my arrival at
Ballyhnckamore to that night, I hat
found myself tho lion of tho neigh
borhood, and had the felicity o
knowing that I was the most im
portant among the men iti those day.
assembled under my roof. But nov
all was changed. The days of in;
greatness were over. A mightie
than I had arisen, and another kin;
reigned in my stead.
1 should not lune minded, if tbe.
had elected Gorman Tracy, or som
one of the many decent fellows abou
me, to fill my place, but it was i .
tating tt> see the worship transferee
from one's manly self to the shriv
oiled face and shrieking voice of th
owner of a box up stairs; to see th
silks und muslins making their genii
flexions nt the shrine of a mere mun:
my; to know that a heartless maehin
was receiving the nattery of the rn;
mas; that a capricious idiotic will wa
directing the mutions of blushin
hand-maidens. And tho hardest pari
the very worst of it all, was that IV
O'Shanghnessy was tho foremost <?
the band of sirens who sung roun<
Giles Humphrey's chair.
For heit; I will own to you, m
Tom, that, by this time, the ?tra
little black sheep from themouutair
had made herself a fold in yoi;
friend's heart. Was it fate so relen
less, or that quaint black gown sod?
mure, or a head of crisp, fair hair, <
a pair td steady grey eyes, or was it
very sweet voice, full of musical ilij
nity, or a timid step, which seenu:
always owning itself a trespass
when treading my Ballylmckamoi
carpets? Was it all or any of the;
things which transformed your sob<
friend into the most loving of jealoi
lovers, crafty enough to weigh litt
words, and count up smiles, and di
regard all worldly wisdom? Von ca:

O'Sh?ughnessy was trying to entrap !
! Ute mil li on ai re. And? oh dear! who !
eonld aay that Lucretia Fitzgibbon ?
was not kind, and even sisterly, to
the shy, friendless girl, who "was a ?
.stranger among strangers?
And did no. one dare to speak above :
a whisper, you will ask, and say a J
word for Peg? Oh, ay!-there was !
one good, little lady, of small social j
consequence, who ventured to sug?
gest that the whole party stood aloof i
from the girl, criticising her; that th*? ;
poor thing felt herself apart from the '
rest of .the ladies; that she had no
pretty morning dresses to eat her
breakfast in, no handsome evening j
dressas to eat her dinner in, no tine
riding-habit to go a-ridiug in; and:
that these wants usually press iq>on I
the female mind. That she had only
one straight black gown for all times.
Further, that, being accustomed to
wait on an old man, her father, she
had taken, naturally, to waiting on
i (liles Humphrey, who was an elderly
j man, to wry thc least; that her -eat
i beside his chair was a harbor to her
? not a pleasant one, perhaps, but still ,
a harbor. These things were said by i
j the blessed little lody of small social j
consequence, but who heard them?
lt was at this period of affairs that
one evening, "ewela being the subject
i of conversa >n, (liles Humphrey.
: having drunk wine, set hus eyes
, u-twiuklii! j, and began to brag of
! certain wondrous trinkets which were
! in his possession, the like of which
; had never gladdened the eyes of any
j c>f the assembled company. A gen?
tleman present, who was a judge of
I such matters, twitted him to make
good his boast, whereupon the little
man's slow blood got up, and he
rushed to his chamber, knocked
Jocko off his perch on the coffer, and
presently came down with a bag full
of jewels fit to startle the eyes of any
prince in the Arabian Nights. There
j were necklaces, bracelets and bangles,
j bodkins for thc hair, and ear-rings
! weighty enough to tear the ilesh of
'?? delicate ears; gems of as many hues
j and cuttings as puzzled Aladdin in
? the cave. There were dazzling necks
in plenty ami arms bare to the shoul
? der all round about Giles Humphrey,
j on which he might have displayed his
treasures to advantage, but it was rm
i Peg that he chose to hang them. He
j stuck bodkins of blazing diamonds in
j her hair; clasped a dozen chains and
? necklaces round her neck, til! they
; dropped below her waist, making her
bust oue Haring mass of splendor:
; put bangles of gold on her ankles;
i and made her bare one round white
I arm, which he shackled with brace
; lets. Blushing in confusion, and
i smiling in amusement at being so
bedizened, Peg looked as quaint and
; as radiant as smite rare old-fashioned
princess stepped out of nn illuminat?
ed legend. Many an eye saw beauty
in her at that moment which it never
had seen before. D'or my part, I
thought she had looked more bcauti
, ful in the scarlet aud white flowers
which 1 had given her for her bosom
that morning. Where, by-the-way,
? was Lucretia Fitzgibbon during those
live or ten minutes of Peg's magnifi
j ceuce? Positively, I forget. I re?
member that a female voice (could it
have been hers?) murmured in a deli?
cate under tone that it was a pity
Peg had not a right to wear tho
jewels, since they became her so well;
and that this was the signal for my
gallant uncle to begin to unclasp
them and gather them int.? their
casket again as fast as he could. As
one after another dropped away from
lier, Peg grew pale and ceased to
smile. Watching her curiously, [saw
a strangely eager, stern look come
over her face, us bauble after bauble
; disappeared. One?', for a moment,
lier cheeks flushed, and a flash of
I longing came into her eyes, but it
faded away again and left her pale
and thoughtful. T divined that she
was thinking how much a few of
those trinkets would do towan ls re
! lieving the distresses of a poor old
J broken-down father, and restoring
I the comfort of the barren fallen home
of tlie O'Shaughnessys. oh, Peg.
Peg! Why did you let nie see finit
It happened that the last of the
ornaments which she relinquished- a
! certain bracelet- had berni clasped too
tightly on the swell of lier plump
i arni, and there was a difficulty about
getting it unfastened, '?ne after an
other, we all tried our skill upon it,
having each ample time as we did so
to observe the fashion and the rich?
ness of thc ornament. The ground
i work was a broad belt of gold, en
riehed with the most exeptisite Indian
, filigree work, mid this band was stud?
ded with at least a thousand tiny pre
1 cious stones of i vory hue. Alaric that
i cursed bracelet well, Tom, foi it will
1 re-nppear in my story.
