SKETCHES AD VESTURE
OF A SVY.
BY A NORTH!?.:" RANGER.
I have lately returned from the South,
but my exact whereabouts in that region,
for obvious reasons, it would not do pome
to state. Suspected of being a Northerner,
it was often to my advantage td couit
obscurity. Known as a spy, a "short
shift" and a ready rope would have pre
vented the blotting of this pnper. Hang
ing, disguised, on the outskirts of" a camp,
mixing with its idlers, laughing at their
joke., examining their arms, counting their
numbers, endeavoring to discover the plans
Of their leaders, listening to this party and
pursuing that, joining in the chorus of a
rebel fcong, betting on rebel success, cuis
ing abolitionism, reviling Lincoln, traduc
ing Scott, extolling Beauregard. dc?piing
Northern fighters, laughing at their tactics
and sneeriug at their weapons, praising
the beauty of Southern belles and decrying
that of 2forthein, calling New Yoik a den
of cut-throats, and New Orleans a paradise
of immaculate chhalr', is but a small
portion of my profession as a spy. This
may not seem honorable or desirable. As
to the honor, let the country that benefits
by the investigations and warnings of the
spy be judge; and the danger, often in
curred, is more serious and personal than
that of the -Tittle-field, which may, per
haps, dctiact from its desiiability.
It was a dark night. Not a star on the
glimmer. I had collected my quotum of
intelligence, and was on the move for the
Noithern lines. I was approaching the
banks of a stream whose waters I had to
cross, and had then some, miles to traverse
before 1 could reach the pickets of our
gallant troops. A feeling of uneasiness
began to creep over mo; I was on tho
outskiils of a wood fringing the dark
waters at my feet, whose presence could
scarcely be detected but for their sullen
murmurs as they rushed through the
gloom. The wind sighed in gentle accord
ance. I walked forty or fifty yards along
the bank. I then crent on all-fours along
the ground and groped with my hands-
paused I groped again my bieath thick
ened, perspiration oozed from me at every
pore, and I was piostrated with horror!
I had ruisscd my kndmark, and knew net
where I was. Below or above, beneath
the shelter of the bank, lay the skiff I had
hidden, ten days before, when I com
menced my operations among the followers
of Jeff. Davis.
As I stood gasping for breath, with all
the unmistakcablc pioofs of my calling
about nic, the sudden crj of a bird or
plunging of a fish would act like magnet
ism on my frame, not wont to shudder at
a shadow. No matter how pressing the
danger may be, if a man sees an opening
for escape he breathes with freedom. But
let him be surrounded by darkness im
penetrable at two 3ards distance, within
liilo's length of concealed foes, for what
knowledge he haa to the contrary ; know
ing too with painful accuracy, the detec
tion of his presence would reward him
with a sudden and violent death, and if he
breathes no faster aud feels his limbs as
fice and his spirits as light as when taking
a favorite promenade, he is more fitted for
a hero than 1 am.
In the agony of that moment in the
sudden and utter helplessness I felt to
discover my true bearings I was about
to let nu'self gentty iuto the stream and
breast its current, for life and death.
There was no alternative. The Northern
lines must be reached in safety before the
morning broke, or I should swing between
heaven and earth from some green limb of
the black forest in which I stood.
At that moment the low, sullen bay of
a bloodhound struck my ear. The sound
was reviving ; the fearful stiilness broken.
The uncertain dread flew before the certain
danger. 1 was standing to my middle in
the shallow bed of the river, just beucath
the jutting banks. t After the pause of a
few seconds, I began to creep, mechanically
and stealthily, down the stream, followed,
as I knew from the rustling of the grass
and frequent breaking of twigs, by thy
insatiable brute; although, by certain un
easy growls, I feit assured he was at fault
Something struck against my breast. I
could not "prevent a cry from escaping 7.ic
as strotching out my hands I grasped the
gunwale of a boat moored beneath the
bank. Between surprise and -joy T fell
half choked." In an "instant I scrambled
on board, and began scaiching for the
painter in the "bow, in order to cast her
from her fastenings.
Suddenly a bright ray of moonlight
the fir,t gleam , of hope in that black night!
-lay directly on the spot, revealing the
silver stream, my own skiff, (hidden there
ten days before,) lighting the deep shad
ows of the verging wood, anil on the log
half buried m the bauk, and from which
I had that instant cas. the liuc which had
bound me to it, the suplck form of the
crouching bloodhound, his red eyes gleam
ing in the moonlight, jaws distended and
poising for the1 spring. With one dart the
light skit! was yards out in the slrearri, and
the savage after it. "With an onr I aimed
a blow at his hcadf which, however, he
eluded with case. In the efforts thus
made, the boat careened over towards my
antafonist, who made a desperate effort
to get his forepaws over the side, ana at
the same time' seizing hold Vf the gunwale
' if h his teeth! ' r '

and placed the muzzle between Ins eyes,
but hesitated to fire, for that one report
might bring on me a volley from the

careened the frail craft so much that tliei
water rushed over the side, threatening to

into the bottom of the skiff, and grasped

like a moonbeam on the stream. In an
instant I had severed the sinewy throat of
the hound, cutting through brawn and
muscle to the nape of the neck. The
tenacious wretch cave a wild, convulsive
leap out of the water, then sank and was J
Five minutes pulling landed me on the
other side of the riyer, and in an hour
after, without further accident, I was

Much is said by the young about honora
ble employment; yet we tear tne purase is
not well understood. In our opinion every
employment is honorable that adds to tho
wc:.lth aud comfort of individuals, and
thereby to the well being of society ; while
dishonorable employment is that which is
wasted in frivolous pursuits, which produce
The pursuit of merchandising is neither
more nor less honorable than agriculture, or
any of the mechanic arts. Without the
various callings pur.ued which add to the
happiness of society, a portion of our com
forts would be' abridged, therefore, every
employment is honorable in proportion to
its usefulness, and the only dishonorable
.calling is that which produces no lesults
heneficial to society.
Many young men have adopted wrong
ideas-on this subject, and think ouly that
business respectable which allows those who
pursue it to dress in broadcloth. Although
the merchant, professional man and others,
whose business docs not bring them In con
tact with grease, brush and cinders, are jus:
tificd in dressing well, yet those' who con
trol the mighty'powcr of steam, guide the
plow and forgcthe hundreds of utensils nec
essary for comfort and convenience, amid
sparks and cinders, are no'less useful to so
ciety than the proudest in our laud.
The idea of classes was imported from
the old world, -whero kings, courtiers and
nobles, rank highest ; while the real use
ful members of society are looked on with
contempt, in this country this idea never
prevailed but to a limited extent, ana is,

carded altogether, while ity outhern

universally regarded as degrading than in

perchance, a tear-drop glistens in his eye,
lays his hand so tenderly oh the broad,
white brow, and silken tresses of his darl

in Jiis manly voice : " And what is my
hcart's-child going, to he ?" t If eyer.such
a thought crossed his mind, it usually
amounts to nothing more than: "She will
be a belle and make a great match." Thus,
in every instance, the one everlasting and
invisible idea of marriage, as though no
woman had evcr'Hved and -died without
being married, or without even desiring
to be. T cannot see why girls should be
brought up to the idea that marriage is the
"one thing needful," the " summun io

GREASED PIG WAS
The army correspondent of the Provi
dence Journal, in describing the amuse
ments indulged in by the 1st Rhode Island
regiment at Camp Sprague, near Washing
ton, when off duty, gives the following
humorous account of a race for and .cap
ture of a greased pig by the volunteers :
" The poor porker, closely shaved and
thoroughly lubricated fiom snout to tail,
was conveyed to the area in a covered box.
Piteous indeed was the e.xpicssiou of hia
innocent face, when, uncaged, he was
turned adrift. Unknowing his destiny, he
slowly stepped from his prison, giunting
satisfaction at his release. But with a
whoop ten incarnate fiends lushed madly
forward and endeavored to clutch his rep
rehensive tail. Piggy, of a sudden, awoke
to a realizing sense of his position, and
darted off, uncertain where to go, and
emitting the most doleful squeals. He
rushed here, and scouted there, having no
respect for the legs of any one, and routing
people in every direction. The men, per
spiring, hot and eager, were desperate in
the chase. They grabbed and caught only
to find their efforts fdtile. No sooner
would the prize appear to be won than it
was lost. The difficulty of the capture was
enhanced by its being allowable only to
hold by his unctious appendage any other
method being ruled out. The feat ap
peared impossible, but one man sublimely
rose whose intellect was adequate to the
pcrformance-of the -feat He showed Liui;
sclf to be the very Napoleon" of pig chasers,
lie soared supreme at the arduousness of
the task, and watching for an opportunity,
threw himself boldly on the rictiai and
seized, the tail between his teeth. The
squealing was terrible, but was drowned in
the shrieks of laughter that -were undoubt
edly heard in "Washington."

Anecdote or Washington. At Cam
bridge, General Washington had heard that
the colorcdsoldiers were not to be depended
on for sentries. So one night, when the
password was "Cambridge," he went out
side the camp, put on an oveicoat, and
then approached a colored sentinel.
" Who go dar ?" cried the sentinel.
'' A friend," replied Washington.
."Friend, adwance unarmed and gib do
countersign," said Pompey.
Washington came up and said "IiO
bury." " No, sar," was the response.
"Mcdford," siid Washington.
"Xo, sar," returned the colored sildier.
" Gharleston," said Washington. '
Pompey immediately exclaimed, " I tell
you, Massa Washeton, no man kin go by
here 'out he say "Cambridge!"
Washington said " Cambridge," and went
by; and the next day the colored gentle
man was relieved of ail further necessity
