''Th'5 Uravcsl are the Ten (lernst."
BY MKS. M. LOUISE CKCSSjjKY.
It Js a singular but interesting
study?the exquisite allinity which
some emotions of our nature have with
others of equal nobleness and purity.
The commingling of the most delicate
chemicals cannot surpass the syntheti
cal combination of these priceless but
immaterial substances of the soul.
While I do not think that any elliut
of emotional synthesis could unite
cowardice and tenderness into one
indissoluble body, I have never known
a imm who was truly brave, in the
best souse of the word, but his nature
was tender and sympathetic.
When our beloved and immortal
Lee?God bless him!?walked over
the oattle ground at Malvern Hill, it
was told me by one of his men, who
Jay wounded himself upon that bloody
field, that he uever saw more sympa
thy manifested by a woman than was
shown by his idolized chief towards
the men who had fallen tmdcrjvis
leadership inat day and JBfoiflB* >
tore him, wounded, dead or dying.
The great Southern champion, just
fruih the flush of victory over the de
feat) d foe, without one thought oft.be
fresh laurels about his brow, left his
suite, raid, alone, went about among
bis <'J'ow-men, to cheer and relieve
them wherever he could. With the
tears streaming from his eyes, he here
bends over a poor wounded private in
rags and tatters, and lilting his head
tenderly, puts the cup of .water to his
lips; and while endeavoring to staunch
the blood of an ugly wound, speaks
words of hope and comfort to the suf
ferer, moaning so touchiugly in his
pain. Over there, he bows by some
dead hero, fallen "with his face to the
foe," and smoothing back the matted
?sad gory Jocks from the pallid fa/ic,
reverently folds the icy bauds upon the
pulseless breast and straightens the
stiffening limbs in the cold embrace of
death; then sadly passing on, now
kneels beside one who fell in close
encounter with his last enemy, The
noldier lifts his eyes to the pitying
face of his beloved General, who, with
tears still dropping down his bearded
cheeks tenderly presses the clammy
hand in his, ami says in a low quiver
voice: "My friend, this is one of the
heart rending but inevitable results 61
war. You have dune your duty nobly
and bravely; lift your heart now to
Hi in who can savo, and lie will soou
receive your spirit where there is ho
more con icl. and death."
'"Tis luve, Lue, (bat. makes the world go
Though the earth is sadder for tin;
loss of Robert E. Leo, 1 thank God
that we have known and loved him,
and that his life with us is a precious
and eternal memory ! Though we
may never look upon his like again,
it is a sweet joy to know that ho is
now safe whore
''Xo winds of war will ever blow;"
that his "tender crowned soul" is with
God, who is love?where no envious

That was a shrewd met bed which
an Iowa. girl recently adopted to in- i
dticc all her friends to attend hor
wedding. She didn't let them know
tip to the last moment who the groom
was 16 be,
A Patriotic Uirl.
At tKu time General Green retrea
ted before Lord Knwdon from Ninety
Six, wh?ui he had passed Ijroad river
he wan very desirous tosend an order
to General Sum tor who was on the
i Watered, to join him; that they might
attack l$nwdon, who had divided his
fi.rce. But the general could find no
man in thai part of the Stato who
was bold enough to undertake so dah
geroifl??ois3ioii. The country to he
passed tprough for niiiny miles was
full of blood-thirsty torics, who on ev
ery iteenfrio? that offered imbrue I their
hands in the blood of the whigs.
At length Emily Geiger presented
herself to General Green, and propo
sed to tttst as his messenger; and the
general, both surprised and delighted,
c ose with her proposal, lie decor
dingly wrote a letter and delivered it,
and at the same time communicated
the contents of it verbally, to he told
to SumiL'r in case of accidents, Emily

ventures on the way wo have no fur

mountc<j_on horseback upon aside sad

riey shefwas inter opted by Lord Haw
dorrs seputs. Coming from the diree
tlori or fircone's army, and hot being
able to tell an untruth without blush
ing, Emily was suspected and consign
ed to a 'room, and as the officer in com
mand'hjad the modesty not to search
her at lille time, he sent for an old to
ry matnpn as more fitting for that pur

A short time since mention was
made in the Union und American of a
my."-toriouH hnn?J that had grown from
a grave in Gibson County. We got
our information from an nrliolu in the
Jackson Courier-'HemiM. We extract
from that article the following account
of this wonderful phenomenon :
"Moud..y our city was unusually
excited by the exhibition iu the Cum
ity'JJera/d office of a hand of wood
which grew out of a grave near Vork
ville, in Gibson County. It was
brought into our office by Captain G.
S. Andrews of that county, who gives
us its history, A man named Wil
liam Her/on was outwalking with his
wife one Sunday evening not long
since, and in passing m\ old neglected
graveyard, near the public road, she
saw a gum bush with a b nch of
rhisleloc on its top, ttml requested her
husband to get it for her. He went
and cut the top off the bush, and com
menced breaking off the in islet oc,
when, to his surprise and terror, lie
discovered that the wood underneath
presented the perfect form ofh human
hand. Capt. Andrews, hen ring (if the
wonderful discovery, went to the
hoiiso of Air. Ileeron, who, feeling
rather uncomfortable, over the though I
that he cut it from a grave, and per
il, ps having some theory us to it.*
supernatural significance, very wil
lingly let Capt. And rows have it.
There are citizens of this city to whom
Ctipt. Andrews ami Mr. llerron are
known, and they tire vouched for ns
truthful men, but ?ho hand itself is
proof enough of the truth of their
statement, concerning its'growth on a
bush. The bush from which it was
cut is six feet high, und the hand was
on the top pointing upwards, present
ing the position of the minister's hand
when pr< nouncing a benediction. It
is about the size of a six year old;
child's hand', with long slender fingers
like those of a person very much
emaciated by sickness. The wood
has enlarged formations on each finger
and the thumb, representing and cor
responding with the joints of the hu
man -hand. The most remarkable
feature about it is the natural appear
ance of the nails. They have a kind
of flesh color, and the balance of the
hand, where the bark has been entire
ly removed looks ghastly white. The
first impression it makes upon you is
the same experienced in handling a
skeleton, and a large majority 61
those who see it, regard it with the
same subdued, half superstitious owe,
inspired by the presence of a corpse.
Mr. A mi rows says the grave from
which it was cut is supposed to be the
grave of a very devout Methodist
minister by the name of Butcher, w ho
was buried there many years ago."
