The Women of the Rebellion.
Mr. George Cary Eggleston, In the At

which the Southern women manifested
tlwir zeal for the "lost cause." He
Uuring the latter part of the year In
which the war between the States came to
an end, a Southern comic writer, In a letr
U-r addressed to Artemus Ward, summed
up ttie political outlook in one sentence,
reading somewhat as follows : 44 You may
reconstruct the men, with your laws and
things, but how are you going to recon
struct the women? Whoop-te!" Now
this unauthorized but certainly very ex
pressive iuterji.'ction had a deal of truth at
its back, and I am very sure that I have
never yet known a thoroughly 44 recon
structed " woman. The reason, of course,
is not far to seek. The women of the
South could hardly have been more des
perately in earnest than their husbands
and brothers and sons were, in the prose
cution of the war, but with their woman
natures they gave thcmsclve wholly to the
cause, and having loved it heartily wlien it
gave promise of a sturdy life, they almost
worship it now that they have strewn its
bier with funeral flowers. To doubt iu
righteousness, or to falter in their loyalty
to it while it lived, would have been tret
son and infidelity; to do the like now that
it is dead would be to them little less than
I wish I could adequately tell my reader
of the part those women played in the
war. If I could make these pages show
the half of their nobleness ; it 1 could de
serilx! the sufferings they endured, and
tell of their cheerfulness under it all ; it
the reader might guess the utter unself
ishness with which they laid themselves
and the things they held nearest their
hearts upon the altar of the only country
thev knew as their own, the rare heroism
with which they played their sorrow
ful part in a drama which was to
them long tragedy; if my pages
could be made to show the half of these
things, all womankind, I am sure, would
tenderly cherish the record, and nobody
would wonder again at the tenacity with
which the women of the South still hold
their allegiance to the lost cause.
Theirs was a peculiarly hard lot.
The real sorrows of war, like those of
clrunkcuuess, always tall most heavily
upon women. They may not bear arms.
They may not even sliare the triumphs
which comiiensate their brethren for toil
and suffering and danger. They must sit
still and endure. The poverty which war
brings, to them wears uo cheerful face, but
sits down with them to empty tables and
pinches them sorely in solitude.
After the victory, the men who have won
it throw up their" hats in a glad huzza,
while their wives and daughters await in
sorest agony of susjicnse the news which
may bring hopeless desolation to their
hearts. To them the victory may mean
the loss of those for whom they lived and
in whom they hoped, while to those who
have fought the battle it brings only glad
ness. And all this was true of Southern
women almost without exception. The
fact that all the men capable or bearing
arms went into the army, and staid there,
gave to every woman in the South a per
sonal interest not only in the general re
sult of each battle, bu t in the list of killed
and wounded as well. Poverty, too, and
pr. vat ion of the sorest kind, was the com
mon lot, while the absence of the men laid
many heavy burdens of work and respon
sibility upon shoulders unused to either.
But they bore it all, not cheerfully only,
but gladly. They believed it to be the
duty of every able-bodied man to serve in
the army, anil they eagerly sent ;the men
of theii'own homes to the field, frowning
undisguisedly upon every laggard until
there were no laggards left. And their
spirit knew no change as the war went on.
Their idea of men's duty comprehended
nothing less than persistence as long as a
shot could be fired. When they saw that
the end was not to be victory, but defeat,
that fact made no change whatever in their
view of the duty to be done. Still less did
their own privations and labors and suffer
ings tend to dam lien their ardor. On the
contrary, the more heavily the war bore
upon themselves, the more persistently did
they demand that it should be fought out
to the end. When they lost a husband, a
son, or a brother, they held the loss only
as an additional reason for adherence to the
cause. Having made such a sacrifice to
that which was almost a religion to them,
they had, if possible, less thought than
ever of proving unfaithful to it.
I put these general statements first, so
that the reader who shall be interested in
such anecdotes as I shall have to tell may
not be misled thereby into the thought that
these good women were implacable or vin
dicative, when they were only devoted to a
cause, which in their eyes represented the
sum of all righteousness.
I remember a conversation between two
of them one a young wife whose husband
was in the army, and the other an elderly
lady, with no husband or son, but with
many friends and near relatives in march
ing regiments. The younger lady re
marked, "1 m sure l do not hate our enemies. 1
earnestly hope their souls may go to
heaven, out l would like to blow all their
mortal bodies away, as fast as they come
upon our soil"
"Why, you shock me, my dear," replied
the other ; 44 1 don't see why you want the
Yankees to go to heaven ! I hoie to get
there myself some day, and I'm sure I
shouldn't want to go il 1 thought I should
find any of them there."
This old lady was convinced from the
first that the South would fail, and she
based this belief on the fact that we
had permitted Yankees to build rail
roads through the Southern States.
" I tell you," she would say, "that's
what they built the railroads lor. They
knew the war was coming and they got
ready for it. The railroads will whip us,
you may depend. What else were they
made for? We got on well enough with
out them, and oughtn't to have let
anybody build them." And no amount
of" reasoning would serve to shake
her conviction that the people of the
North had built all our railroads with
treacherous intent, though the stock ot
the only road she had ever seen was held
very largely by the people along its line,
man7 ot whom were her own Iriends.
She always insisted, loo. that the North
ern troops came South and m:le war for
the sole purpose of taking possession of
our lands and negroes, and she was aston
ished almost out of her wits when she
learned that the negroes were free. She
had supposed that I hey were simply to
change masters, and even then she lived
for months in daily anticipation of the
coming of " the new land owners," who
were waiting, she supposed, for assign
ments of plantations to be made to them
by military authority.
"" They'll quarrel about the division,
maylie," she said one day, "and then
tliri-'ll be a chance for us to whip them
again. I hoe." The last time I saw her,
she had not yet become convinced that
title-deeds were still to be respected.
A young girl, ordinarily of a very pen
tle di-position, astonished a Federal col
onel one day by an outburst of temper
which served at least to show the -arnest-ness
of her purpose to uphold her side of
the argument. She lived in a part of the
country then for the first time held by the
Federal army, and a colonel w ith some
members of bis staff made her family the
unwilling recipients of a call one morn
ing. Seeing the piano open, the colonel
asked the young lady to play, but she de
clined, lie then went to the instrument
himself, but he had hardly begun to play
when the damsel, raising the piano top,
severed nearly all the strings with a hatch
et, saying to the astonished performer, as
she did so,
" That's my piano, and it shall not give
vou a minute's pleasure," The colonel
bowed, apologized, and replied :
" If all your people are as ready as you
to make such costly sacrifices, we might
as w ell go home."
And most of them were ready and wil
ling to make similar sacrifices. One lady
of my acquaintance knocked in the heads
of a dozen casks of choice wine rather than
allow 6ome Federal officers to sip as many
ilas-es of it. Another destroyed her own
library, which was very precious to her,
v hen "that seemed the only way in which
she could prevent the staff of s. general
olliocr, cam ped near her, from enjoying a
few hours' . reading in her parlor every
In New Orleans, soon after the war, I
saw in a drawing-room, one day, an elab
orately framed letter, of which, the cur
tains being drawn, 1 could read only the
signature, which to my astonishment was
that of General Butler.
44 What is thatr I asked of the young
gentlewoman I was visiting.
44 Oh. that's my diploma, my certificate
of good behavior, from General Butler;"
and biking it down from the wall, she per
mitted me to read it, telling me at the
same time its history. It seems that the
young lady had been very active in aiding
captured Confederates to escape from New
Orleans, and for this and other similar of
fenses she was arrested several times. A
gentleman who knew General Butler per
sonally had interested himself in behalf ot
her and some of her friends, and upon
making an appeal for their discharge re
ceived this personal note from the com
manding general, in which he declared his
willingness to discharge all the others,
"But that black-eyed Miss B.," he wrote,
"seems to me an incorrigible little devil
whom even prison fare won't tarnw." The
young lady liad framed the note, and she
cherishes it yet, doubtless.
There is a story told of General For

and the surgeons found it impossible to

Many of them denied themselves not
only delicacies, but substantial food also,
when by enduring semi-starvation they
could add to the stock of food at the com

knew more than one houseful of women
who, from the moment that food began to
grow scarce, refused to eat meat or drink
coffee, living thenceforth only upon vege
tables of a sjieedily perishable sortjn order
that thev might leave the more for the sol
diers in the held. When a friend remon
strated with one of them, on the ground
that her health, already frail, was breaking
down utterly for want of proper diet, she
replied, in a quiet, determined way,

ladies discovered or manufactured onorous
duties for themselves was surprising, and
having discovered or imagined some new
duty, they straightway proceeded to do it
at any cost. An excellent Richmond dame
was talking with a soldier friend, when he
carelessly remarked that there was noth
ing which so greatly helped to keep up a
contented and cheerful spirit among the
men as the receipt of letters from their wo
man friends. Catching at the suggestion
as a revelation of duty, she asked, 44 And
cheerfulness makes better soldiers of
the men, does it not?" Beceiving yes
for an answer, the frail little woman,
already overburdened with cares of an
unusual sort, sat down and made out a
list of the men with whom she was ac
quainted even in the smallest possible
way, and from that day until the end of
the war she wrote one letter a week to
each, a task which, as her acquaintance
was large, taxed her time and strength
very severely. Not content with this, she
wrote on the subject in the newspapers.
earnestly urging a like course upon her
sisters, many oi wnom adopted the sug
gestion at once, much to the delight of the
soldiers, who little dreamed that the kind
ly, cheerful, friendly letters which every
mail brought into camp, were a part of
woman s seli-appomted work tor the suc

ginning to the end of the war it was the

no complaint from the women ever re

privation and terror at home. They bore
all with brave hearts and cheerful faces
and even when they mourned the death
of their most tenderly loved ones, thev
comforted themselves with the thought
that they buried only heroic dust.

A Sage on Early Rising.
When you find an unwillingness to arise
early in the morning, make this short
speech to yourself: I'm getting up now
to do the business of a man ; and am I out
of humor for going about that I was made
for and for the sake of which I was sent
into the world ? Was I then designed for
nothing but t doze and batten beneath
the counterpane? Well, but this is a com
fortable way of living. Granting that,
wast thou bom only for pleasure; were
you nevv-r to do anything ? I thought ac
tion had been the end of your being- Pray
look upon the plants and birds, the pis
mires, spiders, and bees, and you'll see
them all regular and industrious, exerting
their nature and busy iu their station. For
shame! Shall a spider act like a spider
and make the most of her matters, and
sha'n't a man act like a man ? Why don't
you rouse your faculties and manage up to
your kind? For all that, there's no living
without rest. True ; but then let's follow
Nature's direction, and not take too much
of it. Providence does not grant force
and faculties at random : but everything
is made for some end. The sun, as high
as it is. lias its business assigned ; and so
have the celestial deities. And Where's
Hie wonder of all this? But pray what
were vou made for? For your pleasure?

are preferred for pickles. The stems

pounds of fruit take four pounds of sug;ir,
two quarts of the best vinegar, a little

Hop Beer. This is healthy, easily
made and really valuable. It will keep
six or eight mouths ; three months after
it is made it is almost equal to ale. This
recipe makes 15 gallons : 12 ounces hops,
6 quarts molasses, 10 eggs; put the hops
in a bag and boil them 15 minutes in 3
pails of water; put in the molasses while
hot, and pour immediately into a strong

water coiu ; lei me unxiure tiaim uum

This beer will not ferment in cold weather
unless put in quite a warm place.
Cisterns. A correspondent of the
Maine Farmer WTites : My method of
making cisterns is this : Dig a circular
hole in the ground of such size as may be
desired, slanting it in such a manner that
the ground will not cave in, cover tne Dot
torn and sides of the opening with a good
coat of hydraulic cement, and when the
lirst coat is sufficiently set finish it off
wiih a second. This will soon become
hard and firm, and hold water like a stone
jug. 'I he top is covered with a wooden
platform, with an opening sufficiently
large to admit an entrance for the purpose
of cleaning, and m which a pump is in
serted, a small spoilt on one side being
necessary to carry on superuuous water.
These are far superior in durability and
cleanliness to the wooden tub or cask.

Then learn its secrets.
It is composed of three old tin milk-
pans, battered and worn, and so fillet! with
holes that the tinman pronounced them
mist cure. The holes in the bottom were
a recommendation for the purpose I de
sired to use them. If there had not tx-en
a bountiful supply, I should have punched
more, so as to secure good drainage.
A few cents' worth ot green paint trans
formed the rustv outsides ot the pans into
a pleasing aspect. The pans were of dif
ferent siz 8; the smallest, oi course, must
form the apex of the pyramid. A little
thicket of woods opposite the house fur
nished a small tree, about as large around
as a man's wrist. This was cut on so as
to furnish a stick five feet in length. A
large hole was then broken out from
the center of two pans, and they were
slipped on to the stick at regular inter
vals. The upper pan being nailed firmly
to the smooth top of the sack, the lower
end of it was sharpened to a point, so as
to be driven into the ground at least six
inches. Two Btrong iron spikes were
hammered into the stick just below each
of the two pans, so that they could rest
upon it about three inches on each side.
This supports them, so that no weight can
The pans were then filled with good
rich soil, a layer an inch in depth of bits
of charcoal being placed at the bottom ot
them, to keep them sweet. In this the
vines were planted, and now they festoon
the sides with a more beautiful drapery
than money can purchase; while the
whole cost of the pyramid did not exceed
ten cents. On two large sections of a
tree, with the bark left on, are placed two
wooden bowls, also painted green and
filled with various vines, while a varie
gated geranium is placed in the center of
each. These sections of wood are planted
in the ground and present the appearance
of stumps. - -
An old fig-drum or a salt-box can be
converted into a lovely hanging-basket by
drilling holes in three places, to pas wires
through, and then nailing upon the out
side strips of bark, pine cones, or dry
mosses; and you will possess a rustic
basket which can be suspended from the
trees, or porch, or piazza, and will grow
in beauty daily. If you are so fortunate
as to live in the vicinity of a saw-mill or a
tannery, vou can easily procure mossy
oak or hemlock bark, and these, mingled
wirh the pliable stems of wild grape-vines,
will afl'ord you rustic work which will be
the admiration ot every one.
Take anv old shallow box of the dimen
sions vou may desire, or make one that
flares out at the sides, and cover it witn

Beautiful hanging-baskets can also be
made out of the bark and grape-vines,

for a parlor, dining-room or hall.

remedy which is making its way into more

empty pretension. There seems to be no
question about the potency of its tonic and
alterative properties, whilo it possesses the
great negative recommenoauoii i con

That it is a specific for Indigestion, Bilious

of nervous origin, we have reason to
know : and we are assured on good au

are new to the medical world ; and its ex
