or even manhood, but our reat govern

and myself, the renuiuiug engineers be
loutii to the civil corps. The latter
made uiups of the land and water and we
took observations on a great scale as a cor

army corps to "cumb" the civil and of the
civil corps to "cuss" each other according
to rank and to especially belabor tiie
"lousiabouts." Promptly at noon each day

completion of their course. These l itter
were selected us "chainsmon" and paid

Such iu'oiiel was the party that assem
bled on board the "Ahkassaw" in the
winter of 186 77, a lare roomy barge,
titted up into compartments for the army
corps, the civil corps and the "herd." Our
api,rimeuts, of course, were the best and
amnmed a larue cabin where we sat in
state e tch evening ami inspected the work
of the civil corps. After a half hour of this
a few sympathetic buttles of extra dry
ehimpagne, choice imported cigon and
gmnes occupied our atteution.
The chief leveler, Justin Temple, was the
most independent lellow of our party, and
so tar as his work wjs concerned, deserved
higuer r&uii than he omul ever attaiu as a
civilian. However, he rank with the duel

Lieutenant Grant anmein rath, glaied at

Tin; baiter was awiiiing tlu conflict and

"What has happ nod," said tho lieuten

"Send in lienioii," saia tiie lieutenant to

now, and in spite of oUi delight at th) di.

ho was inucii like General Gmnt in earliei

walked into the cabin conipUceutly, erect
and stately as uny ollici d might have done.
In dress and appearance there was no de

him was presented and ho met it ind ffer
ently so lar as we were concern d, but
sterniy eyed bis nccu-er, measuring him
from head to foot. He took fmin his pock

handed it to the first lieutenant who read:
"Dkah BknTON', Please feel yoursef Ht

be suio and call to-niht.
"This is all very good Ueuton," said tho
lituteuant in a triendiy way, but you must
remember that imeriercucc with officers is
not tolerated here."
"During official hours sir, I have no de

"Pietiy good for a deckhand," sneered
Djntou turned ou him. "Sir, better a
geuileuian deck-hand than a snob official."'
We alL.laii.ihed in spite of ourselves us
our ideas of what a deck-hand might be un

since reading the letter penned by the
wealthiest banker of Chicago. As tor the
leveler he boiled over like a kettle of soap.

During all this scene the chief of the civ

employment and di-ch trtje of tho men, had
remained silent. He knew something ol

hack tus head, pocketed his hands, yawned
tremendously, aud said :

We uil laughed. Benton retired looking
gratelul ior ins relief aud Temple went in u

Benton knew perlectly every instrument
and could make as good a plot as any en

My recollection of Miss Foster at that
timu is auuiethiug in the line ot a blessed
vision ot beauty, blio was about the me
dium height, perfectly formed and statoiy
in demo aior. Her beauty wus almost
plienouioual. Her complexion was as clear
as crystal apriugs, glowing with health, and
having withai acertain cast of countenance
which leuiinded one of the Creole. Her
ej es were largo and hszul in color and

been alone with Miss Flossie. She was

to my mind, grandest uiusicial produc

both little hands iu his, and kissing them
softly, said that "angels in heaven were not

bued with such inspiration."
She arose without withdrawing her
hands. "Mr. Bentou," she said, "mine
may be inspired for sught I know, but
how much moie so are these which have
learned to d'gnify toil."
Benton needed uo more encouragement
than that, and the flood of his love un
looted. She answered "Miss Flossie" by

possession of her unresistingly, and they
