Sliort ns the pronont is, it is ns broail its
tho universe! It smiles 011 land mid son. on
prairie, mountain rind desert, mid it reaches
away up to Heaven! And now as I muse
by my window this bright moonlight eve,
my thoughts tiro wondering back over the
past, and though long, I think how short is
the time since I was a little romping,
thoughtless child nt school 1
Where nnd how nre situated nil those
little, ones that then roved the fields with
nic? They are nil grown up and scattered,
or slumbering in their graves. Many of
them me married, nnd are tho happy hus
bands and wives of loving companions, the
proud parents of prattling little ones, the
industrious citizens of flourishing communi
ties, the piopictors of pleasant farms, the
mistresses of happy homes! They arc set
lied and they are happy; they live to enjoy
1 fc they live because there is an object
worth living for! May their lives be pro
tracted and their pros; ects never blighted.
Others again, are still ploddirg on "in
single bliss'." They, too, have seasons of
joy they ate laboring in searih of some
thing nobler than mete food and ra'ment
they are seeking the goodly peail which a
waits the diiligenl. They labor and wait
and live, because they fancy they enjoy life.
Poor fellows! very few of tin m have homes
of their own. AVhcn the lain pells, or the
or the snow drifts, it is not their roof that
protects. Yt hen wearied and discouraged
willi the labors of the day when beset
with thick-coming troul les, it is not their
bed on which they resl; and, when overtak
en by care and sickness, it is only the hand
of a friend that holds the aching head, or
screens the painful light; only a friend thai
peaks wordu of comfort to the troubled
heart; only a friend who answers the thous
andth call. There is no "dear, second-self"
to hover round, watching the feble breath
and consoling the desponding spirits no
doubly interested companion, seeing their
necessities before asked seeing, feeling
and relieving, because loving you! Poor
fellows, you have my sympathy!
Among those who used to "chase with
me the flying hours," many have left "this
vale of tears," and taken up their abode
"beyond the skies." Among this number
there was one litllo boy, with bright eyes,
jetty curls, niery voice and elastic step.
lie was an orphan child; but his adopted
father was proud of the promising son. lie
wan cherished as a real rou; and the fond
care of the father was not in vain. The son
tried to rcpivy the kindness by obedience
and love to tho father. At school, too.l Uk
Eddie was the pride and joy of Inn fticiids.
"He ran swiftly in the ways of knowledge,"
his lessons were always mastered; and as
he grew older, his friends began to hope that
ho would lie a brighter star in the literary
sky. After a time, ui fell u victim to a fa
tal malady. His mind grew shattered, and
hiy reason fled ! Many times have I seen
him as ho sauntered over field and wood
with his dog and irv.n, "like one deranged!"
'Twas sad, indeed, to see that form, so late
!y full of buoyant hope, now "like a shadow,
slowly flitting by." 'Twas sad, too, to hear
that hollow, grave-like voice, and remember
that it was so lately "full of flute-like musie."
Out death came, at last, and now a neat little
stone is all (hat tells the tale gone home!
There was another bright little boy that
I remember. They called him Johnny. Ho
was younger than I by some years; but for
some unknown reason or other, lie took a
particular liking to n:c. Every day he
would give me an apple or n peach, and he
would always lend me his book or slate or
knife, if he thought I wanted it. Still, kind as
he was to me, I was too selfish to return his
kindness. I would always do my best to
shun him at playtime, and often refuse him
tho least favor ho would ask. How 1 ever
managed to be so cruelly selfish has id ways
been a mystery, to me! And now, while I
am musing at my window, where is Johnny?
Johnny was absent from school one morn
ing, rather a rare thing for him. I thought
little of it then, only to rejoice that I would
not be bothered by his questions. How
cruel ! Next day Johnny was absent again,
and again ! It was on the afternoon of the
seventh day a bright Autumnal afternoon
that my mother ermo in, walked up to the
bed nnd laying oil' her shawl, Raid to me
"Poor Johnny is dead I" All, how those
words shot through my soul ! I was not
prepared to hear such tidings. Presently
she went on to tell bow much he had Mifi'ei
ed, how much ho had talked to his mother
about his f.choo! his playmates, teacher,
books and play; and most of all how he hud
talked of me, and wondered, anil wondered
again, why I didn't come to see him while
he was so sick? Here my mother paused a
moment, and wiped away a tear, for she
knew that I was not as kind to little Johnny
as ho was to me ; and then went on to tell
how tho litt!o sufferer had wanted to
get well that he might come back to school
and see me! This was more than I could
bear I burst into tears, and breathed a
pruyev not from lips, but from my heart
that if Cod would forgive mo this one time,
I never would again unkindly use another
trusting little one. Tho next day, while t'.ie
soft wind was sighing, and the evening sun
fast Btooping to the western groves, they
laid this loving little one away to rest,
where the violet blosoms and tho turtle dove
sii gi, when tho spring day is ended!
Our dear kind teacher, who used so care
fully to lead tho trusting lambs, continued
to pursue his Christian mission for a time;
but when tho autumn winds howled through
tho naked groves and whirled tho withered
leaves in tiio eddies over the brown fallows,

THE YOUNG REBEL,
A Tale of the Carolinas.
BY J. MILTON SANDERS.
In a small farm house, toward the c!o.e
if the veur 1 Tt-0. fat an old man. his wile
and only son. The face of the fuMior up
peared troubled; at t:ines he looked thought
fully on the floor, and then he would gaze
long ami wistfully at his son, a lino m.uily
youth of twenty. At length he snid:
I'uvul, tins in disastrous uews lrom l mil
lion, llod knows what will become of the
country now! Congress needs every arm
that is capable an! me. 1 wish tins old
wound that I cot in the French war ha I no!
lamed me, but for it, I should now be shoul
dering my musket, and inarching to uelciid
my com try.'
Iloth the son and wi:c looked up at these
words. The old ladv ceased kn.lting, and
gazed iiHiuirngly at her boy, and it was ev
ident lrom the express 0:1 ol Iter face, that
patriotism an l motherly affection were at
variance in her bosom. Tlie son, however.
alter cncountoi ing his father's eve for a
moment, turned eonfusedlv away, The old
mini's brow darkeno.!, una ho said warning
ly: 'David, P avid, why do you linger about
(he village when your t'ountry needs your
services so much? Twice before have 1
-1 o'.en to votl upon this subject, but you
ap; ear to have no spirit ! What, will you
see us trampled upon by the im roorar.es 0:
lirilain, and still lie here supinely? For
shame, David for shame! 1 will not call you
my sou. Long sit co yii ought to have
been in the a my,'
'Joshua, Joshua,' interpored the old moth
er, 'David is but a youth, then do not speak
to him so harshly, llecannoi iVel w hat you
feel, who have louht to o ten a. iiinst your
country's en; niies. Joshua, he is but a hoy.'
'A boy indeed, Deborah ! such boys ie
David have already ga'ned imperishable
laurels since the war commenced. I can
name a host of them. whv, were it not I'm
tlie boys of tin's laud, where would bo our
army, which 1 dare say is composed ol' boys
of David's age?' The old man wan excited,
and it was the first unkind word he ha 1
ever used to his boy,
David 10.se and Icil the house, lie walk
ed some distance apparently in deep tho't.
'What will not woman do?' he at length
said, 'here 1 have been lingering about, the
village when 1 should have been otf long
ago. And for what! why t meet a protiy
girl and linten to her musical voice : but
now 1 will be niynelf again. What did he
call me? was it not a coward? Now, by
Heaven, I will learn him that he hiu a son
with the spirit of his lather. Away then
with love, for I feel that I am cid'ed upon
10 act, and 110 longer dream. lire a fort
night, my father shall hear of me or else 1
lose my life in striving for it.' And with
resolution he turned about and retraced his
When he reached homo he nought the

house half hid between clustering trees.

the m'stroR.s of his heart; the dhis showed
that the family had not yet retired, and he
resolved to pay her a visit before bis de-
artiire. She was alone when he entered,
and a few words acquainted her of his de
termination, r-he burst into tears.
'Nay, Mary,' he said", 'you must r ot unman
me. At first I resolved to leave on with
out a farewell, for 1 knew how ou dreaded
my taking part in this si niggle. JJut 1
could not be so cruel as to desert you with
out a word.'
'1 will compose myself,' said the fair girl,
with an effort to snide. '1 know 1 have
been wrong to persuade you to stay, but
you cannot imagine the anxiety 1 suiter on
account of my brothers, and I could not
hear to have you too encounter their dan
ger. l!ut since this dreadful defeat at Cam
den, 1 feel that every man is wanted by our
country. (Jo, then, dearest, and (lod be
with you. My prayers shall attend you
night and day.
David pressed the now weeping girl to
his bosom, snatched a hasty kiss at the
sound of approaching footsteps, wrung her
hand and was gone.
The next day ho left tho neighborhood of
his father's hoube, armed With a musket,
and mounted on a sturdy horse. His desti
nation was the American camp, then far to
the northward, but as the intervening coun
try was tilled with the enemy, he knew
there would be considerable address re
quired to effect his purpose. Defore his
departure, he saw a lew of his old playmates
who promised to follow him us soon as pos
sible. Night found him near a lonely farm hour.e
to winch ho proceeded boldly iu search of
lodgings. At first the occupant received
him coldly, but a chance expression con
vinced David that his host was a tory ; he
affected the same political creed, and was
immediately warmly welcomed. The roy
alist produced his cider lifter supper, and
insisted that David should join him in his
potations ; this the young man did, taking
care, however, not to indulgo too freely;
while the former, overjoyed to find wl at he
supposed a new recruit for his parly, drank
without stint, and became more and more
and nioro communicative. To lus horror,
David soon learned that a party of royalists,
led by a .Major Wilson, celebrated for his
toryisiu, was to start early the ensuing day
on an expedition to seize and hang the two
liunkeis, who had made theiut.civcH partic
ularly obnoxious to tho royalist leaders.
David knew enough of this parliznii warfare
1 1 be assured that no mercy would bo shown
io his friends; he knew enough of tho char
acter of the Major to suKpict that some
strong personal motive ha I led to the plan
ning of so d;stant an expedition, when thei 0
were others as inviting nearer home, lie
accordingly set himself to discover from his
inebriate companion the liuth. It was not
long before (success crowned his adroit cross
'Why, you see,' said his host, 'I believe
there's a httlo revengo far a blight received
from thexo fellows' sister, mixed up with
(ho Major's desire to catch the Hunkers.
The girl is very pretty, th"y say, and the
Major when she was down lure on a visit
last year before the war got so bloody
wanted to many her, but sho would have
nothing to say to him, liver siuco ho has
vowed to make her ruo the day. You may
depend upon it, he will have her on his own
tonus now thank heaven! theie's no law
any longer to prevent an honest loyalist
lrom doing as ha pl jaacs to liioso rascally
rebels. Hut yonder is the Major, now,' sud
denly said his host starting up, 'I'll intro
duce you to him at once u merry follow
you Will find him Lord lovo you ! he's as
brave as a lion.'
David, though horrified nt tho diabolical
plot ho had heard, haw the necessity of
dissembling iu order t i learn further of the
lories' plans, if possibio to circumvent them.
Ilo arose, therefore, and shook the Major's
hand warmly, pledged him immediately iuu

refused, however, to sign the agreement
that night; he pretended that several others
of his friends' were disatVocto 1 and h's oh
iecf, he s:vd, was to secure a commission
for h'tn ielf by inducing them to join. This
tempting bait took; the Major promised him
a command of his troops incase of success,
and David signified his intention of setting

order to lose no time in gathering together
The dread of dis every htvl been before

many of the Major's troop, ami if any ol

not have protected him from detection. He
wished to get oil' that night as he had pro
nosed, but to this, neither les host nor the
Major would hear, and he was forced to
remain till morning. What was his anguish
to hear on rising, that tho Major had been
ioue pome hours and wim already tin h's
way to the Hunkers with his troops. Dis
sembling his anxietv, David partook of a
!ias!y breakfast, an mounting his horse,
rode slowly away. Hut when out of sight
ol' the house he struck into a fierce gallop,
wh . h he continued till he came in sight of
1 cross road, where was a tavern. Here he
stopped, and learning that the loyalist had
taken the high road, he turned into a more
narrow and more cirouitoiu one.
'It's my only possible chance to nvo'd

Night had fallen, as they expected, before

when they arrived close to the promises, Iho
lively notes of a violin reached their ear.i.
proving that the brothers were not awa.e
of their presence, but enjoying themselves
in iinu-'ined security'.
'Now nu n,' whispered the leader of the
torios, 'when 1 give the word, fire a volley
it the house by way of introducing our
selves; we will then surround the house mid
cuter ii.' At this instant (he dot p bay of a
log lung iu their ears, and a large maid ill'
sprang from under the house and rushed al
'Fire,' ho cried.
Twenty' guns broke the st'llness of tho
night the dog foil dead every pane of
glass in front of the house was shivi red. and
the torios yelled like savages. In an instant
the lii'.ht in the house was extinguished
the violin quickly ceased and a noise was
made at the door. The torios iniinedintelv
made a rush at it. Hut it was already bar
red, and being made of stout oak plank, re
sisted all their ell'ort.i.
A rifle crack from one of the upper win
dows, and one of the lories fell desperately
wounded. Another report succeeded, and
another tory fell, and Major Wilson was
niTw fully aware that both Hunkers were at
home and wide awake.
A shed turned the rain from the front
the bonne and underneath this the tories
shielded themselves from the fire of the
Hunkers and went to work at the door. Sus
pecting such resistance perhaps from
knowledge of their character one of them
had brought an ax.with which he commenced
hewing at the door, nnd soon cut it to pie
ces, llere a desperate battle ensued. The
two brothers were powerful men, and cour
ageous as they were sti"iig; and now, with
clubbed l ilies, thev disioited the passage of
the whole tory force. The door being
small, they stood their ground for hall'
hour; felling during that time some of there
who had tho temerity to enter first, but fi
nally numbers overcame them, ami they
were flung upon the floor and bound. The
tories inflamed to madness at the great
resistance which had been made, and at
their own loss, now seized the mother and
sister, and made preparations to hang the
two bro liers before their eyes. Toe ropes
were already lied around tlie necks of the
victims, when tho Major thuu addressed his

are dead, we will set lire to this housc-the
old woman, there,' he said with a scornful
laugh, 'may bo left inside, but tho younger
one I reserve for myself.'
'Hist!' cried one of the men in a loud
voice. Tho Major ceased, and they heard
voice outside of tlie house. Although the
words were spoken low, the listeners dis
tinctly heard, 'when I say lire give it tolhcm!'
A man with a blanched cheek now rushed
among them exclaiming, 'the yard is full
'Fire!' cried a deep voice from tho yard;
a general volley succeeded, and so well had
the aim been directed in tho door, that sev
eral of tho tories fell dead or desperately
wounded. In turn, tho tories retreated up
stairs, when David, our hero, rushed into
the room which (hey had just left, and cut
the ropes which bound the Hunkers and the
mother and sister. '
May (bid Almighty bless yon for this,'
cried one of the Hunkers. Tho two men
sprung up and seized their rifles which
been left in tho room, and prepared to re
taliate tho treatment they had just received.
Long and desperate was (ho battle. The
tories fought for tif'i the whigs for revenge.
Hut at length the latter triumphed, though
not until their enemies had been almost
wholly exterm na'.cd. The Major fell by the
hand of our hero, who sought him out in
tlio hottest of the fight and engaged him

The Heroic Gen. Lyon.
Nathaniel Lyon was born in Windham
county, Connecticut, and matured his habits
of diligence and a healthy frame by labor
on a farm. His ardent desire was to serve
his country and rival the fame ami bravery
of the bold Major Knowllon, a maternal
relative, who led the Connecticut boys who
were a part of the left wing of the Ameri
can army at tho "Old Rail Fence" at Hunker
Hill, and who lost his bleat Harlem Mights.
Tho Connecticut lad entered West Point
as a Cadet in 1 SI17.
His admission into tho army as Second
Lieutenant of Second Infantry, iu 1 Ml, gave
him adequate military training to fit him
for active duty during the Mexican war.
He was the youngest First Lieutenant
his regiment, under command of Lieutenant
Colonel Rennet Riley, iu the Mexican war,
but commanded his company in tlie battles
of Contents and Clicrubnseo, and was bre
vetted Captain for his gallantry and good
conduct. He was one of the boldest in the
assault upon Do Helen's (late, at the City
Mexico, where he was wounded.
Since lK"il ho has been Captain, and since
the rebellion opened in Missouri, he has at
tracted a nation's attention. His experience
lias been iu border win fare in Florida,
Texas, iu California and Kansas. Ho was
watchful and prudent, caring by personal
supervision for tho safely and comfort
his soldiers, and guarding against surprise
from his enemies.
