One feverish step In advance

To hazard a chango and a chanco.
I care for no riches that are not my right,
No honor tkatis not my due,

He lent me my lot, be it bramble cr high,
And set ae my business hare;
And whether I hve In his service, or die, .

If wealthy, I stand as the steward of ray
If poor, as the friend of my Lord;

If wisdom be mine, I will cherish His 'it;

BY E. J. D.
Bat the happiness of the lovers was
soon rudely disturbed. A few days
after their betrothal, orders were re?
ceived at the headquarters of the
Confederates to prepare three days'
provisions, and to be ready to move
at a moment's warning. It was not
generally known what the character
of the movement was to be, but
Lieut. Gillespie, who was in favor
with some of the superior officers,
learned that all the forces on the Bap
pahannock were to be secretly and
rapidly concentrated near Bichmond,
and that the troops would probably
move on the evening of the next day.
He accordingly hastened to the man?
sion to communicate the unwelcome
intelligence to his friends there.
They received the news with regret,
but without dismay. Mr. Early had
Srepared for such an emergency, and
e determined to remove at once with
his daughter to a place of greater se?
curity. He had two sisters-one re?
siding in Bichmond, and the other
some five miles to the North of that
city-with either of whom he knew
he would find friendly shelter and a
cordial welcome. He resolved to go
to the house of the latter, who was
Mrs. Minor, a widow lady, and make
it, for the present, his home.
Their arrangements were soon com?
pleted to make an early start the next
morning. The mansion was placed
in charge of a trusty servant, and a
few servants were left on the farm to
take care of the stock as well as they
might be able to do so. Harry was
present to bid them farewell and wit?
ness their departure. An open car?
riage, and a light, strong wagon, to
carry the servants and extra baggage,
both drawn by fine, large horses,
were to convey them away. Their
parting was rendered less painful by
the fact that they expected to meet
again soon. Harry saw them com?
fortably seated, and all the baggage
safely stowed away, and then with a
hearty shake of the hand, and a
"God bless you, my boy," from Mr.
Early, and a long, fond kiss from El?
len, the vehicles rolled away. The
young officer stood and watched them
as they wound along the base of the
hills, until a tura in the road hid
them from his view. The mansion
and the grounds, beautiful as they
were, had no charms for him now,
and, with a ead heart, he hastened to
The destination of the travelers
was, as we have stated, Mrs. Minor's,
distant about sixty miles; and they
expected to make the journey easily
in two days. They proceeded the
first day without any accident or dif?
ficulty; but, on the morning of the
second, they learned that some Fede?
ral soldiers were at Hanover C. H. ;
but it was thought the road they
were traveling was still open and safe,
and Mr. Early hastened on, coping
to pass the pout of greatest danger
before the enemy reached it. But
they had not gone far before they
met a squad of Federal cavalry, by
whom they were stopped. Mr. Early
explained and remonstrated, but the
officer in command told him very
sternly that he was instructed to ar?
rest alt persons going toward Rich?
mond under suspicious circumstances.
They were placed in charge of a cor?
poral and three men, with orders to
conduct them to a house near at hand,
and detain there under -strict
guard. The owner of the house was
supposed by the Federals to be a
Union man, but whatever may haye
been his political proclivities, his wife
and daughter were staunch friends to
the South. The latter was a hand?
some little lynx-eyed brunette, named
Lucy, whose sylph-like figure, keen
' wit, and coquettish manners, enabled
her to dupe and mislead many a Fed?
eral soldier. The situation of the
prisoners aroused her sympathies at
once, and she determined to effect
Keeping her own counsel, how?
ever, Lucy pretended great friend?
ship for the Union soldiers, gave
them dinner and feasted them highly,
permitting them to have as much
brandy as they wanted. When even
I ing came on, she again furnished
them a bountiful supper, and sup
I plied them plentifully with some nice
! cordial, which she had prepared for
j the occasion. The well-fed troopers
i were jolly and hilarious and boister?
ous for a time, but it was not long
after dark before they betook them
I selves to sleep, and were soon all
buried in profound slumber, except
the sentinel posted in front of the
j door, who stilt* paced his measured
round, but lifted his feet high from
the ground, and let them fall with a
sudden, heavy tramp.
Lucy had revealed her real charac?
ter to Ellen, and made her acquainted
with her design; and they now went
into a room to consult and perfect
"You see," said the little minx,
her dark eyes dilating with light and
gleasure, "there is a road from the
ack gate of the barn-yard, behind
the house, where the stables are,
leading around the farm and entering
the main road again, about a mile
below here. They are all asleep but
that guard in front of the door,' and
he will soon be down, too, for I put
opium enough in that cordial to put
'Old Scratch' himself to sleep. So,
when all are buried in slumber, we
will wake up your fa tb or and tho ser?
vants, and, getting the vehicles ready,
I will let you ont at the back gate,
and you can then easily make your
way, and be too far off for pursuit
before those drunken fellows awaken.
How do you like my plan?"
"It is admirable," cried Ellen, joy?
fully. "I think we will be sure to
succeed. Why, Lucy, yon ought ta
be an aid to soma of the Confederate
generals. I am sure you would sharp
en their wits a good deal."
**L have had some offers of that
i kind," said the witty girl, with affect?
ed gravity, "but have not thought
proper to accept any position yet.
But let us attend to the business ir
I hand; there is no time to lose;" and
1 she glided softly to the front dooi
and opened it
The lusty sentinel was still swag
fjering to and fro, humming in maud
in tones, 'Hail Columbia, happj
"You 11 sing another tuue, af bei
awhile, my birdie," she said to her
self, and, closing tho door, she wont
back to tell Ellen that tho last bat
tery would soon be carried, and al
would be right.
Ten o'clock, at length, came, am
every ono was asleep in the honse bu
the two girls, who sat in Lucy's room
chatting in a low voice, and waiting
I patiently for the opiate to do it:
'work. When they ceased talking
nothing broke the silence tba
I reigned except the snoring of th<
! sleeping troopers, in the piazza, au<
the heavy tread of the sentinel in th
I "We have a very fierce dog, tba
might have given us some trouble
? but I have taken care of him, too,
"How, Captain, did you give hir.
some of the cordial, too?" inquire*
"No, I sent him with my littl
j brother to a neighbor's house* befor
I dark, and he will not be back til
I morning. Fido is too noble a dog t
[ be served a Yankee trick. But, hus!
that footfall has stopped. I don
? hear it," and she glided to the doo
There lay the luckless guare
sprawled upon the grass. She steppe
j lightly to him, and peering into hi
face, saw that he was completel
wrapped in the arms of Morpheus
and perfectly oblivious of all the
was passing. Repressing her laug!
ter, she ran into the house, aud to!
Ellen that she was now "master c
Ellen then went to her father
chamber, gently woke him up, an
informed him of their design nn
their success so far. Mr. Early ei
pressed his surprise and joy; an
submitting himself entirely to th
girls' directions, he roused up th
servants, and it was not long befoi
the carriage and wagon were in read
ness. Lucy attended them out, an
after receiving many thanks and
shower of kisses from Ellen, and
cordial shake of the hand and a hear
felt "Qed bless you, my noble dan gi
ter!" from the old Virginian, she sa
k, R. J ,T .MX M v r -. * > .. -
them safely out of the great gate,
and then hastened back to her room
and went to bed. The brave girl
could not, however, for some time,
get to sleep, for thinking how funny
the booby troopers would look in the
morning, and how she would secretly
enjoy their surprise and disappoint?
The travelers mes-with no further
mishap on the way; but, tao ugh they
had only some fifteen milea more to
go, the night was so intensely dark
and the road in such a wretched con?
dition, that they did not reach their
journey's end until late the next
morning. Mr. Early's sister wel?
comed him and his daughter with
great pleasure, though die deeply re?
gretted the cause that had, driven
them from their home. Mrs. Minor
waa the owner of a nice residence
and a handsome property, and was a
lady of intelligence and refinement.
Sho had but three children-two sons
and n daughter; the former were in
the Confederate army, and as she
was left alone with the latter, she was
glad to have the presence and com?
pany of her brother.
Minnie Minor was a dashy, showy
girl, with fair skin and jet black hair
' and eyes, about Ellen's age, but
! strikingly her opposite in appearance,
and, in many respects, indisposition.
Bnt, though she was gay and spright?
ly, and somewhat proud of her beauty
and accomplishments, she possessed
a kind and generous heart, and was
ardently attached to the cause of the
South. Ellen knew Minnie's foibles,
but she overlooked them in consider?
ation of the precious diamond that
the showy casket concealed. If she
had her faults, she had her virtues
also; and when you came to know
her well, you found that the latter
greatly predominated. The two cou?
sins, despite the contrariety of cha?
racter that existed between them,
were warm friends, and it was a great
treat to them both to be together at
such a time.

INCREASE OF RATS.-The Farmer's
Gazette (English) asserts and proves by
figures that one pair of RATS will have a
progeny and descendants no less than
651,050"in three years. Now, unless this
immense family can be kept down, they
would consume more food than would sus?
tain 65,000 human beings.

RATS VERSUS BIRDS.-Whoever engages
in shooting small birds is a cruel man;
whoever aids in exterminating rats is a
benefactor. Wo should like some one to
give ns thc benefit of their experience in
driving out these pests. We need something
besides dogs, cats and traps for this busi?
ness.-Scientific American, N. Y.
