To this sumptuous female Condrick laid
siege. ' .
Ills progress was gocd.
As the shades of evening Fettled down
upon valley and hill, he and his charmer
took a stroll. .
As they walked along the meandering
banks of the Carson, the full taci of the
moon rose up from behind the eastern
hills. All uature seemed filled and quiv
ering with love. .
Love danced in the rays of moonlight
that glanced oh the stream; the willows
rustled their leaves to the passing breezes,
and so sweetly told the story of their love
that even the restless winds were ontieed
for awhile to linger, lorgetlul of their
journey; enamored night hawks were
skimming the love-laden air in voluptuous
circles, rays of languishing light gleaming
in answering flashes froin their lazy wings;
crickets, peepiDg from their. holes in. the

sweet honeydew of Heaven fell softly into
the heart-cup that each meek plant held
trustingly up. . :
The sympathetic hearts of tho lovers
acknowledged i the tender influences sur
rounding : them, and shared ' the ' sweet
thrills with which, all nature quivered. '
Slotvly the pair, in fond discourse, wan
dered on.-i :: . ." ""'
-What throb3 of affection stirred Con
What fires of. love burned in Condrick's
eyes ! . .
As his charmer leaned trustirgly upon
his arm, Heaven seemed to descend and
rest on the luwcr and nearest hills.
As the murmur of a bee in a rose, was
her voice to his soul. r,
Seating themselves on a grassy bank,
they g:ized together on tho darkling eddies
of the gliding stream.
In glowing colors Condrick painted for
the fair being bv his side a picture of the
wonderful wealth hidden withio the rocky
vaults of the Whipporwill mine.
Charmed by his eloquence and absorbed
in the contemplationnf the picture he had
placed before her, O forgot all o.Uc, aud

within his bosom.
He felt a desire, to bound to his feet and
utter a wild whoop!
: But he didn't. .
' No: he constrained his emotion; ho re
sisted the inisulse.
Her head was now fairly and snugly
nestled upon his breast.
As she lay gazing iuto his handsome
face, her parted tresses, of richest bruwn,
fell backward in affluent waves from her
broad forehead, uukissed by the sun, and
of niarble texture and whiteness. Her

A Tvtiliglit Wooiii
It is an awful thing to lose a friend by
marriage! To see him drop into your
room occasionally, alwavs with :i nnnor
paicel undor his arm,
j , - i i
aud nubons, instead of having him all to
yourself, day iu and day out. To, know
that the blue-breathed - evening cijrar will
inevitably be abbreviated by 'Oh, mv
wile will ber anxious if. I'm not at home

pretty girl with the pink boar.et that you
met on the street yesterday, and be gen

tongue suddenly palsied by the conviction
that he will tell his wife every word you

scribable. Do you suppose I didn't feel jealous
when Jack Marclyffe got married? Do
you suppose the green-eyed monster did
n't inspire me with all sorts ot unamiable
teelini:s towards the little brown-fiyed
beauty who had cut me out so completely ?
It took some time to recoucileme to the
new state of things. But when I found
out that she didn't object to my sitting on
the balcony and speaking with Jack

so bad an institution after al!. And one
day, when she brought out her tinv
wicker wcrk-basket, aud stood on tip-toe j
to sew the loose button upon my coat, I J
capitulated in good earnest. ,
"Jack," -aid I, "your wife is well, not

little woman I ever set my eyes on. You
won't be jealous, old fellow ?"
."Jealous no !" stretching his neck to
look after the light disappearing figure.
"But I teli you what, Arthur, you ought
to sec Mary's sister !" . .
About two weeks after this, as I came
in at tlie sweet-brier-shadowed gate, and
paused to look at the crimson clove-pinks
just opening their fringed petals, the sil
very tones of another voice pounded iu
the low-eavcd piazza, and almost before I
knew it Jack Marclyffe's arm was through
mine, and he wa introducing me to a du
plicate edition of his wife a scrfrlet-lipped,
arch-eyed girl in white muslin, with a
coral bracelet on her arm. : ,
From that moment, I was gone. I
didn't know whether I sat in Jack's vel
vet easy chair, or on the top of a rail
fence; I said "No, I thank ou!' when
31 rs. Jack asked me how I was ; I stirred
my cup of chocolate wish a pen-knife, aud
tried to put the table-cloth, instead of ray
handkerchief, into my pocket ; and finally
I irrevocably disgraced myself by putting
the match-box iuto the cradle, and depos
iting the baby on the mantel-piece. . .
'Good gracious, Mr. Arden !" exclaim
ed Marclyffe, "what's the matter ?"
"I believe I think iu fact, I know

Jack squeezed my hand.' He had been
"through the mill" himself.
"Do you think slue cares forme, Jack ?"
I asked, plaintively, about a month after
ward. "1 declare, honestly, I've a great
mind to jump off the pier, or hang myself,
or die by starvation. Now, what docs she
mean by flirting with that red-whiskered

Poor Maycliffe! It wasaboucthe thir

Jack burst iuto a laugh.
"Well, I can't give an? belter advice,"
said he; "only remember, my boy, 'faint
heart never won fair lady.' "
lie turned away, and left me standing
in the amber flush of the twilight, among
the crimson clusters of cinna'iion roses and
the tall coronals of gleamiug lilies. Up
in the rosy sky the new moon hucg, a
curved thread of silver, and one bright
star bore its lance of pearl against the ra
diant horizon. I looked absently up at
the fair atmosphere down at the blos
soming gardec of flowers, thinking, in the
midst of my perplexity, how like the blue
heaven was to Agnes' eyes, and marveling
that the pink roses were so near akin to
the dainty color that came and went upou
her silk-soft cheek.
Beside the low French window that
opened upon the piazza floor, I saw the
flow of muslin drapery through the fra
grant gloom it was where Mrs. Marclyffe
was wont to sit, with her baby. I caught
the. refruiu of the low, delicious cradle
song warbled in the tiny sleeper's ear. A
bright thought struck me I would take
woman's wit into my counsel.
"Mary," said I, sitting down on the
piazza' step, and leaniug ray head against
the rose-wreathed pillar just opoositc the
window, "I wish you'd tell me what to do;
I'm desperately in lov3 with your sister
Agnep, and don't laugh now I haven't
the courage to tell her so."
I paused an instant, and then went or, :
"I love her better than life. No. that is
not saying enough I would die to make
her happy. Oh, Mary, can't you give me
a word ot encouragement? I dare not
tell her my love, because my heart sinks
so in dread of the one little word, No !'.
Will she speak it, do you think ?"
There was no answer still.
'Olarywill she break my heart ?"
I spoke with trembling accents, fresh
from the deepest recesses of my soul.
One instant of silence, in the soft, pul
sing fragrance cf the midsummer twilight,
and then there was a fluttering ot light,
azure robes, the fall of a fairy footstep.
Ere I could look up, a soft, white arm,
gleaming with the clasp of a blood red
coral bracelet, was around my neck a
shower of brown curls nestled on mv

General Sherman's Guide.
General Sherman had with him, in his
Georgia expedition, one of the best and
most reliable "scouts" in the Southwest
an old man, a native Georgian, aud a
wealthy planter and slaveholder at that.
It would not be proper, ot course, to men
tion his name, but it is well knowu to all
who visited headquartersa yearago. When
the war broke out, he deuounced the
Southern leaders, and in consequence of
hi? Union sentiments was compelled to
leave his home, near Macon, between two
days. His neighbors missed him, and
suspecting rightly that he had gone off to
join the Yankees; they followed him so
closely that he was obliged to hide in the
mountains for several weeks. They have
since organized all kiud- of raids for no
other object than to catch this old man.
vicer ocing in tne service tor some time,
he voluuteered his services to General
Buell, but that officer didn't need much
Southern "guidance." Next he received
a position as voluuecer aid to General
Itosecrans, to whom he was of great service
in the campaign terminating at Chattanoo
ga. He has been with Ueueral Sherman
since last June. There is not a highway
nor tyway in the interior of Georgia with
which he is unacquaiutcd, aud scarcely a
town or village in which he is not knewn.
He used to say that with a brigade of
cavalry, he could find cotton and niggers
enough within cno hundred miles of At
lanta, to liquidate the National debt. He
is one of the rich men of the South who
have regained faithful to the Union cause
when they knew that to dso was to lose
their property, their homes and their
comfort. Oa his present trip he carries
with, him a black iit of those who took
