There Li au unseen bat*le-fi??ld
lu exerv luinian breast,
W here two opposing forces meet,
And where they seldom rest.
Thai field is hld froth mortal eight
'Tis oidy seeu by one.
Who knows alono whero victory hes
When each day's fight is done.
Ooo army clusters strong and fierc?-^
Thelr chief of demon form;
His brow is Hka the thunder ckmd.
His voice the bursting storm.
His captains Pride, and Lust, and Hate,
Whose troops watch nigh* and day,
Swift to detect the weakest pomt,
And thirsting for the fray.
Contending with this mighty force
Is bnt^a little band;
Yet there, with an unciuailmg bout.
Those warriors firmly stand.
There leader is of Goddike form.
Of countenance sereno:
And glowing on his naked breast
A single cross is seen.
His captains Faith, and Hope, aud Love,
Point to that wondrous sign;
And gazing on it, 4dl receive
Strength from a source Divine.
They feel it speaks a glorious truth,
A truth as groat as suro,
That to be victors they must learn
To love, confide, endure.'
That faith sublime, in wildest strife,
* Imparts a holy calm;
For every deadly blow a shield,
For every wound a balm.
Aud whon they win that battle-field,
Past toil is-quite forgot; ... ,
The plain where carnanto once had reigned
Becomes a hallowed spot.
The spot whore joy of flowers and poace
Spring from the fertile sod,
And breathe tho perfume of their praise
On every breeze of God.
A Tale of the late War.
BY E. J . D .
"Now no more the drum

? The late civil war, terrible in itt
character and disastrous in its results,
Ix?a ended, but the many stirring
scenes and painful trials to which it
gave rise, and the daring heroism ani
fortitude thai, were displayed, wil
never be obliterated from the mindi
of those now living, and will fnrnisl
themes ou which future generation!
will dwell with wondering and curiou
interest. The pen of the historial
will fail to chronicle many of tb
eveuts and incidents of thoso excitiuj
and trying days, but story and son?
will gather them up aud hand theu
down decorated and embellished witl
the garlands of romance and th
colorings of fancy.
It was about the middle of May
in thc year 1862, that the write
visited Vifginia for the first timi1
He went on business connected wit)
a South Carolina brigade, then com
manded by the heroic and lamente
Maxcy Gregg. He found the brigad
encamped among the hills of Spot
sylvania, some five or six miles froi
Fredericksburg. The Con fed erat
forces had evacuated that town som
weeks before and fallen back te) th
strong position they then held, i
expectation of the advance of th
Federal army, whose numerous cai
tonments could be seen spread ovc
tho plains and heights of Stafforc
beyond the Kappahannock Hive:
A new picket lino had been forme
by the Confederates along the Nortl
ern side of the Massaponix, a sma
river that runs, at this point, almos
parallel with the Kappahannock, int
which it empties some distance belov
This picket line was about th?
milos from Fredericksburg. Som
Federal troops lind occupied tin
place, and it was thought the mai
body would cross the river as soon i
their preparations were complete.

Rici imoiid. Thus posted tho tw
armies watched each other, and fi
several weeks nothing occurred e:
cept some slight skirmishing on tl
The Massaponix, which is nothir.
more than a pretty brooklet babblir
along its pebbly bed, runs throne,
one of the most beautiful valleys th;
we ever beheld. It appeared to 1
then charming in tho extreme, e
tending for about a mile on eitlu
side of the stream and windin
:iccording to its course, as far as tl
eye could see, covered with gre*
fields of wheat, oats and clover. C
the sides of the valley, scattered he
and there on the gentle slopes ar
slight plateaus formed by the shel
mg hills, were tho residences of tl
farmers, each with its cluster of ou
buildings, surrounded by shrubbei
aud flower gardens and half biddi
from view by magnificent shade tree
Numerous sleek cattle lazily cropjx
tho clover on the rich and verdai
pastures, or reclined contentedly i
their favorite retreats. On every far
there wore well filled granarios, o
chards that produced the finest i
upples, pears and cherries, and co
dairies filled with tho most delieioi
milk and butter. Such were some
the beauties and comforts that su
rounded the happy dwellers in tl
valley of the Massaponix lt was i
enchanting sceuo, &ndr accustomed,
as wo had been to the level and mo?
notonous plains of Carolina, it filled
ns with rapture and delight.
But the demon of war was about
to invade that quiet and peaceful
scene, mar its beauty and destroy its
happiness. What a pity that so
much rural beauty, and so much
Iranian comfort and bliss, should bo
sacrificed to the brutal passions and
mad ambition of man. Let no one
boast of the progress of the ago
again nut il civilization and religion
shall have subdned the powers of
darkness and controlled the hearts of
men to such a degree that States and
nations will adopt a leas cruel and
barbarous arbiter of their disputes
th au the sword. All that delightf ul
region was, doubtless, completely
desolated, for it was in that immedi?
ate vicinity aud perhaps along that
identical valley that some of tho
fiercest and most sanguinary battles
were subsequently fought. It wit?
nessed brilliant displays of military
genius and lofty and heroic courage ;
but alas! who shall sum up tho fear?
ful cost at which they were exhibited.
On the South side of the valley, and
about half a mile from the brooklet,
was the residence of John Early, one
of the wealthiest and most intelligent
farmers in that part of tho country.
The house was a handsome and sub?
stantial structure, with large vino
clad piazzas or verandas on two sides,
embowered in a grove of magnificent
oaks, and surrounded by finely orna?
mented grounds. Immediately around
the dwelling was a neatly and taste?
fully enclosed yard, covered with
green grass, and sprinkled here and
there with roso bushes of snowy
white and blushing red. A number
of well arranged and convenient out?
buildings, completed tho picture.
The whole place bespoke plenty, ease
Opposite the Enrly mansion, and
some two miles South of it, was the
camp of Gregg's Carolina brigade.
A plain country road led from the
camp to the farm, and, passing on the
West side of the house, ran on North,
across the valley, in the direction ot
Fredericksburg. On that road, about
a mile from the point where it crossed
the brooklet, au infantry picket had
been placed, where one company was
gonerally on duty. This company
was relieved by a fresh one from thc
camp, every day, and these compa?
nies, in marching to and from theil
post, passed directly by the hon yt
and through thc farm, lt was no)
known to tho Carolinians whethei
the owner of that splendid farm was
well or ill-affected toward the caust
of the South; but, composed, as they
were, at that time, of. the elite am
flower of the State, and, as yet, un
corrupted by the demoralizing iuflu
onces of camp-life, they would hav<
scorned to commit the slightest depre
dation on private property, whethei
it belonged to friend or foe.
Mr. Early was a Virginian of th?
old school, frank, high-toned am
hospitable. He possessed a enltivatet
and well-balanced mind, and had i
fair share of hereditary pride of cha
racter. Though fifty winters and up
wards had passed over his head
slightly silvering his locks with grey
he was still hale and strong, the lus
tre of his eye was undimmed, am
his step was firm and elastic. lu hi
youth, lie had been handsome, am
was still prepossessing and noble ii
appearance. Having an ardent an?
impulsive nature, he was warm am
vehement iu his likes and dislikes
and was an intense lover of the Ol?
Dominion. Virginia Avas all the worl?
to him, and he behoved there wan u<
country under Heaven her equal
Ho revered the memory of Washing
ton, was firmly attached to the Unioi
of the States, and did not believe ii
the secession doctrines of Sont]
Carolina. Though conscious that hi
section had been wronged mid op
pressed, he thought it best to see
redress by methods that w?;ro clear!
within the pale of tho Constitution
and would not bo attended with th
perilous risk of war. Hut the issn
had been joined, his Stu to had mad
common cause with her Southern sis
ters, and, though lie did not love th
Union less, he loved Virginia mort
and ho found his fortunes inevitabl;
cast with those of tho South.
But, though fortune had smiled oi
Johu Early, and he was blessed wit
every material comfort and enjoj
ment of life, ho had boen very unfoi
t?nate in his domostic relation.'
Death hail visited his household, au
he had draine?! the cup of sorrow t
its bitterest dregs. A few years bf
fore, ho had lost his wife, a lovel
and estimable woman, to whom h
was tenderly and ardently attach?e
and, of three children, the swee
pledges of their wedded love, bu

Ellen Early, now some eightee
years of age, had just returned froi
school to her pleasant home, a beni
tifnl and accomplished young lad^
She was of medium size, possesseil
well-rounded ami symmetrical fora
and a idear and brilliant complexioi
Her face was of neither (?reciaii nc
Hornau mould, but a blending ?.>f th
chief beauties of both-th ! true:
American type. The forehead wt
fair a..?1 full, with exquisitely arche
brows; the nose, neither too larc
nor too small, was finely and del
cately formed; the mouth was sinai
with sound, oven teeth, as white :
alabaster, and thin, ruby lips, who*
soft, warm, velvety touch would huv
thrille?! any oin? with pleasure wh
was fortunate enough to receive
kiss from them; on the polished an
tiiegantly shaped chiu, there sti
lin gored some ol the dimples of child?
hood; he? eyes, with long, dark,
silky lushes, vere of the deepest and
purest blue, but so bright and spark?
ling, and withal so changeable, as
difierent emotions swept the cords of
her sensitive 'heart, that it was diffi?
cult to tell their preciso color; her
cheeks were tinged with those roseate
hues which perfect health alone can
give ; and a ' profusion of dark, lus?
trous curls overspread her snowy neck
and shoulders. Her hands and feet
wore small and pretty, though the
former often moulded tho balls of
delicious butter, as well as drew
sweet sounds from the piano; and
the latter had many a time, in child?
hood's gleosome days, with other lit?
tle feet, paddled iu the limpid waters
of the Massaponix. No wonder Ellen
was the idol of her father's heart and
the light of his home. lu her charm?
ing society and the bright sunshine
of her sweet smiles, he seemed to
forgot his sorrows, and feel that he
was not entirely deserted and alone
in tho world. She was indued a love?
ly and charming creature, and her
gay songs and merry, ringing laugh?
ter, banished grief and gloom from
his house aud heart.
But the dark clouds of war wcro
approaching, and the domestic fcli-1
city of Mr. Early and his gifted j
daughter were destined to be of short j
duration. Ellon was aware ol the !
proximity of tho hostile armies, had
noticed the soldiers with concern and
interest, and watched them daily as
they marched through the valley.
The sight was strang? and novel to
her, and it filled her maiden heart
with vague and indefinable apprehen?
sions of danger, lier daily duties
and pleasures, however, had not yet
been interrupted, and the compnra
J tive quiet that .still reigned led her to
hope-tho young aro always hopeful
-that all would turn out well yet.
and that tho dangers that threatened
them would in some way be averted.
