THE OLD MILL.
Rural life has always a charm a romance which
clings around it, especially to one whose childhood
was free and happy nmid the society of brook and
vales and foliage nnd pleasing rural haunts. . Con.
tinually will some "germ of old remembrance un.
cover itself from the dust and cobwebs of dim re
collection nnd come up, fresh and possessing an in
terest, with a kind of weirdnesiof pleasure, causing
pangs ot severe regret mat cniiubood bad not al
ways lasted. ' '
-A little stream which formed the outlet of a jaVe
embowered among the hilll at if to add only the
charm of a ray of sunlight to the beanty of, the
landscape, ran conrenied along by the alders and
Sags, the meadows' and pastures, till at last it cross
d the highway and plunged into a thick forest
andyras lost to comprehension. ,.
One summer day, I, tired of wondering where
this trout stream ran to for, like the "brook" of
Tennyson, there wasa poetic romance about it which
was irresistible tempted by the wildness of tbe
scene, made a journey to its course, and wandered
along its fringed banks. "A slight rushing sound,
as of dista falling waters, or the hastening of tbe
wind through the foliage, led me down the grad
ually steeping declivity and tbe increasing rugged
bank, now across the stream upon a high suspend
ed log, or picking my footholds among tbe rocks
wnicu rose aoove tne rnpMis.
" Over the bed f the stream, as'it deepened into
the forest, hung the birch nnd elm, forming a con
tinuous snaue ana vista, oown wnicb my eyes,
peered with all the admiration of a young noetic
soul. Here and there a white cascade broke the
regularity of tbe descent, and wound "around tbe
base of jutting hill or rock, growing every step
move wild, varied and pietnresque. .
As the descent grew steep, r tbe roughness of tbe
banks compelled me to leave the shore and clamber
around a distance of a lew rods, when I again came
full upon tbe stream and Oebeld the pouring waters,
the Round of which bad grown more and more dis
tinct as I tppfu&ched. Turning suddenly to tbe
left around a projecting ledge, the stream plunged
down a l.e'gbt of a hundred feet or more, into a
ravine still more dark nnd wild, and forming a
beautiful carcadi, Awhich ftroke in Fpray-aod
sprinkled-the mosses and wild flowers upon its banks
with a delicious coolness. , j
Upon AhA brow of the opposite shore and the
shelving rocks, the Er nnd hemlock grew so close
and dense as to completely shut out all view or the
scene beyond. The vine and gooseberry inter-1
mingled with the dark gray recks, while ever the
fall the mingling branches of the trees formed a
beautiful gateway from which the white cascade
r'arted like a thing of life, and Bed away down the
: At the foot of the fall stood the ruin of ad old
mill, the stones growing over with the moss nnd
weeds, while a little green plot of grass and wild
flowers spread oat before it. As I clambered upon
tLe ruins, lost in theroarof the falling waters, and
uncon'cious of outer thincs. I discovered a pretty
summer hat, decorated with ribbons nnd wild
flowers, tying partially concealed by some over
hanging branches, and I suddenly recollected hav
ing caught an indislnct strain of song as it mingled
and seemed lost in the so'.nd of Urn water,- to as
uqt to have.' before left a dUtinct impres-ion upon
my ear. I listened and gazed abiut carefully,
searching for some indication of the fair owner,
but to no purpose, i - ' .
Whether the. wiapcr noticed me and hastened
away, fearing to stay to claim it, or whether some
accident might not bare befallen her, were thoughts
which engaged my curiosity until near the s.nking
of the evening fiin!litna into twll'g'it. The sofi
air grew cool and balmr, and the fall more beauti
ful in the contrast of the deep-ning shade, but still
I waited thoughtlessly curving a devloa upon a
shelving rock, and musing until the moon was up
and shining, when wound along by the ravine
outward, bearing and admiring the hat, ta my
youthful fancy the embodiment of beauty nud art
iew loveliness. I doubted not tbe waving tresfes
of the fuirest flower of sixteen summers bad often
been coucealed beneath it.
MaDy a year later, I' strayed again to the thicket
and the fall,' sYill hidden in the depth of a larger
forest. There lay the old millstone a tree of con
siderable size growing through it, and the wild
flowers and the brambles were considerable coarser.
The ruins suddenly called to mind the incidents of
the former visit, so long before that the precise
timo was not recalled; but before I left, my eye
fell upon the following inscription:
"June 15, 1845. Found a bat, and lost my
heart. S. S."
Jut below, cut in a similar Btvle. by the chUell-
(ng of a piece of qoartx, was :
"Lost my. hat, but found no heart. A. B. .
I recalled to mind my impression of the time that
the hat was out of style and trimming usually
worn in the country, and that it was no doubt that
of a visitor to the locality,' who bad unattended,
stnyed to gratify a curiosity for romantic scenery,
similar to my own, and that rambling away from
the locality, had mistaken the place where the hat
It was, in a moment, my full determination to
discover Whr) fcas the fair "A. BJ' nd then for
the first time in my life I seriously thought of the
idea of choosing a companion, to wita me admire
Uio romance of nature, ,
"Yes," said I, "she could not hare com here
uuless tempted by the tame fancy, and if tbe germ
budding so young has been cultivated, she must be
all I could imagine, both in body and Soul. ' -
"But the wide world spread put before me, and
with it a vista of nncounted years, while how
many times might the fancied 'A. 11.' bare become
A any of tho 2G letters of tbe alphabet, yes
and the '& bes.des. And was no longer a reai
dent of. the country, and she mif;ht be abroad." .
The meditation was well nigh distracting, and
the few momenta of sleep that night were but
snatches of wild song and fairy nymphs just clud
insr mv gaze and grasp bv the foaming spray. To
fw mvsclf of the ttffuct the uadaeas bad produced,
it quickened my departure to a contemplated tour
among the northern bills and likes. Tbe long
alt. nee from these scenes had a new eharm to me.
or else the interruption to my pence of miud had
tuddeuly made ma more appreciative. I passed a
week at a tine hotel wlucn naa grown up on tne
stores of Willoughby lake, which wot now a favo
itc resort. . -
My unsettle fancy led me by lonjf wander
ings among the forest shores and by the tiew found
postures, in search of a wild fluwer or a stray
berry. One afternoon I came upon party of
ladiut wreathing garlands for a couple of bright
little girlt, the very embodiment of lareliuess and
health, and, placing upon them their summer tuts
the party mulled down to the lake to watch the
white-fringed waves, as they laved the shining
I had not heeded the Indies. None could lie
beautil'ul or rharminir to me but ' A. 11.; ' but
sudden remark caught my ear; How singular ll
w, Anniu, that wt novel bad a truce or your lott
i hardly understood tbe words flint, nor did
euteh llit reply) but I looked up, started Willi a
pnng of despair, as I had o doubt f om the appear
ance of the group that one lady was the mother of
of the children, and the other an aunt or grand
mother. 1, however, caught a hasty glanct or tut
features o the mother, and beheld all my fancy
ideal, with Uit a hearing of still greater loveliness
and grace than my fevered iniaj,'luatlon erer had
"Confound tbe fortune!" I ejaculated, and turned
were there, and numerous other B t but no "A.
B." althnngh I was satisfied that -Anuie" was -the
real "A. B." . ; ,
I rared not lo le.irn funher of my fte, and cam
near quitting on the early stage for the Queen's
dominions, w hen the landlord necosted me, and
aidted If I would not make a party nrmn the lake.
"another genllcnti.n Was wanted, and the ladies hud
proposed yon." I consented, was presented to the
good naturrd company, bat forgot the name in my
thoughtlessness until cery judication of atttntion
on her part and frequent raillery of :ny melancholy
luu.cu, iu . Miisincuun, mat sue WHI not llie
mother of the two lovely chileren I had seen her
in company with. .
The boating party returned, and with it my
drooping spinU, while the acquaintance begun
ripencij into admiration. The rambles were fre
quent, and the wreathes of wild flowers often rug.
gestcd a subject which 1 could riot summon courage
enougn to toucli upon. One day, 'when her ha.
had received a few flowers of my culling, 1, while
stooping to pluck a (tower, nnd with my face turned
away, mustered courage to say that I heard her
onct remark that tbe bad lost a bat docked with
flowers. ' ' . .
; "Yes," the rplid, "I lost my traveling hat once
when I was a little girl, and I would give my heart
to know who fottnd it." ' " - ' .
"WbyT" suggested I,' musing, and learned that
there wns tome mystery which she concealed with
playfulness. ' - '
' "I Tound the hat," laid I, 'at we tat down njon
a knoll, shaded by an overhanging maple, and I
will take the heart." . . . . i t
' "You, Mr. Smith," said the. in wrorise.
found my hat by that beautiful waterfall T"
"I did, Wist Annie, and lott my heart." '
-. . .
There followed no surprise nor exclamation at nry
last remark, but her' hand unconsciously dronned
npon mine, at we both at the same moment asked
how it came about. ' As I divined, she had
thoughtlessly strayed away from the spot where the
oni wot tett, until too near night, and too faraway
to return for it. Upon returning with a companion
the neit morning, the bat was not to be round, but,
instead, ' the inscription at I had made it She
added the playful suggestion, and returned harbor
ing the same curiosity as I bad done.
The hnt had been carefully kept as a bachelor
relic, stowed in my garret, but it has since been
pulled out, and embodies to two happy hearts a
bright ptge of d itdhood. We have both tince
visited the fall and the mill runs, while somebody
bat added to the former inscription : "Found the
hat, and found the heart."'
nOW 05E FEELS IX BATTLE.
People often wonder how one feelt In battle.
All men are not affected alike. Some are cool, t3e
termined and courageous; tome lose nil Judgment,
and will, single-handed, rush npon hundreds; others
are entirely unmanned, tremble like aspens, teems
dead lo every emotion of honor or feeling of shame,
and will slink into coverts, or run from the field.
Lord Forth in the Crimean war it an Instance. If
skirmishers engage prior to a general battle, and a
desultory ft ring is kept up for a while, one become
medtoit, and, as tbe battle warms, It frequently
becomes exciting, and men that tremble at the first
few shots, now rti'h on like heroes.
I remember well my feeling durlnertht first bat
tle. In which I was engaged. The night before, we
received orders lo attack the enemy early on the
morrow. All was uow bustle, hurry and anxiety
Ouns were cleaned, ammunition inspected, strap
adjusted, canteens filled, knapsacks lightened,, let
ters written. We had several in our company who
had always boasted of their bravery and prowera,
men wh hod been "spoiling fur a fight." as they

mated to his me-smate the propriety of praying

I confess a feeling of dread and anxiety dole
over me. Battle was certain, the enemy was
strongly posted, and wt had desperate work hefore
ik.' I wanted lo go into imtt'e; yet I dreaded it
like death. . I sletit but lilt! that nirhr. The
morning lamr. and our columns moved quietly and
sternly forward through wood. The first intima
tion we had of tbe enemy was Ihe tkirmishing be
tween his outport and ouf vanguard, the former
fulling bark as the latter advanced. - H e passed
out the wood, and rapidly deployed into line of bat
tle, a gentle tleping hill hiding ihe enemy from our
view. A part of our fore had been sent around to
make a flank and rear attack 01 the enemy ; and.
while so doinc. It was of the tttmnst importance
that we should hold hit attention in front.
Wt) marched steadily up the bill till the whole line
of tha enemr burst upon our viewr there we
h tiled, nnd for some minutes not a gun wns fired
on either tide. There stood the armies, each wait
ing for the other to begin the work of death. ' The
fares of our men looked pale and determined, some
of them stood lik'i statctes, others were nervous
and uneasy. It waa the time to test their courage.
A line of cannon we bearing directly npon us.
Death to many of ut wat certain. Who will it be?
thought I. A lingular feeling came over me; a
confused image of a mother and sister appeared
flitting and floating before my imagination lika dis
solving shadows, while tht tremendous roality in
front ODDretsed me with dreadlnl lorenoaings.
A few moment! passed, like these mat intervene
between drawing the cap over the criminal face
and letting full the drop, when a pull olsorule iron

dorn their heads like geese. Fire wa uow opened
on us along tht enemy t entire line.
The first shots were aimed too high. They grad
ually lowered them. Every lischarge brought their
balls tearfully nearer. Vi were impatient to
turn the fire, but dart not until the command was
eivcu. Our Culonel passed along in front of tbe
line, and urged us to stand firm until tbe proper
time, and the day would be uurt. It it a task to
hold men exposed to an encmy'i fir without allow
ing them to return it They will toon run, one
way or the other. Tht enemy'l tliot now began to
howl around us, plow through our ranks, and tear

olf the bayonet of my me&smate on my left; a mo

severing him almost in twain. He reeled and fell
