"TJbon mi word, this is the roolert pro
ceeding I ever knew."
Colonel Templar sat in nia oatcneior aentv
turn where tha rava of an Aoril snnsblne
shone In lines of glittering gold among the
Neapolitan violets In the window, ana drove
the little canary half-wild with silver-voice
delight a sanctum crowded with a miscel
laneous conftMiou or meerschaums in omtr-
itstages of color, dree!ng gowns, cigar
boxes, newspaper, and gorgeous velvet suppers-he
contracted his brows moodily over a
letter whose pink paper and delicate scent of
foreign perfume betokened a troublesome
"Dear Svdney" yes, I'm always "dear"
when Bertha wants a disagreeable commis
sion eiecoted what hypocrites womts are,
to be sure "an eligible house, somewhere,
In some nice locality, It surety can be fte
trouble to engage one for as."
No trouble, qtiothal mat s Just a woman s
random ideas I No trouble to rush from pil
lar to Met honse-buntinr. Where's the In
demnity of bachelornood, I'd Ilk to know T
I might as well be a married man In good
earnest, If Pm to be saddled with all the res-
nonsibilitr of tha thing. I woa t be imposed
upon I'll write to Bertha at ones sad tell
Colonel Templar gave hie Jet black nana,
laches a savage jerk", and polled his writing
desk resolutely forward. Then a softer
mood seemed to dawn athwart his mind be
hesitated, biting the handle of his pen ned
tatively. "Poor little Bertha she always was my
pet cousin, and I suppose It Is rather incon
venient for her to come all the way here to
look for a house and her husband will be
in India till tha middle of May, and well,
the npsbot of tbe whole matter is that I'm
doomed to victimize myself, and tbe sooner
it s ovet the better. Hetgbol where s the
newspaper? I'll lust look over the To Lets'
first, and then I'll go to tbe estate agencies."
The sun was peeping from behind masses
of flying clouds, like a shy beauty who al
ternately smiles and hides her bee the air
was Ml of the faint spring odors, avao In
this brick-ar.d-mortar wilderness, when Col
nel Sydney Templar sailed forth, armed and
equiped with the various references, direc
tions and addresses, to engage In the moment
ous business of house-bunting.
Ho was not a handsome man yet yon
would bare tnrned involuntarily to look af
ter him as he sauntered by, attracted by tbe
deep smothered lire or bis dark eyes,
and the firm outline of hislips. Ko Colonel
Templar was not handsome, but he was wbst
tbe ladies term "interesting.' Moreover he
carried an empty sleeve where the left arm
should have been an everlasting memorial
of the red battle-clouds.
"It seems odd for me to go bonse-hunt-
Ing," mused Templar, as be strode onward
through the dusty streets. "For me, the sol
itary, homeless recluse of one-and thirty
years old.. Four years ago things appeared
suflerenUy to me Tour years ago I might
have dreamed of a house of my. own, with
Marion Caryl's bright eyes to light up its
sjear'.n-stone. Ah, met tuts ii a world ot
change I A careless word little misunder
standing and here I am, a crippled soldier.
while Marion is probably tne sunshine of
some other man s lire. Hold on (I am get
ting mandlin and romantic) eh, Sydney Tem
plar? This will never do, old fellow."
Tbe Colonel gave his heavy black locks a
backward toss, as if Impatient at his own
folly, and vigorously directed bis attention
to tbe list of eligible residence In bis pocket
book. "No. 41 street; here's tha very place.
Wants painting badly on the outside, but
may present a more promising appearance
libra. At all event we 11 try."
He rang the bell, and after brief skirmish
ing of servants in tbe hall, a faded lady in
dyed silk, and bair In crimping pins, appear
"Is this house to let, madam?" inquired
our Colonel, deferentially.
'Well, yes, it's to let, but can tsee it now
"Can't see It now?"
"No," snarled the lady, vindictively.
"Hours are between two and four."
"I'm quite sure that female In the crimp
ing pins is an old maid," decided the Colonel
mentally, "and I think sbe must have break
fasted off broken glass and cambric needles.
1 wonder if tbe people at Ko. 171
street will lie any more affable."
A pretty blue-eyed woman. In a torn wrap
per and slippers down at the beel, answered
"Can I see this house?" meekly Questioned
Could you call again in about an hour?
asked the blue-eyed one. "My husband is
out, and we've been so troubled with thieves
and respectable looking agents who carry
aeys witn mem mat
"Ob, I beg your pardon. Under the cir
enmslances t will not intrude," said Colonel
Templar, with com lo elevation of his eye
brows. Terh.pt, however, von will be
good enough to see that I leave the door mat
behind quite safe."
"It's well I didn't let him coma In," was
oer internal comment. "Ha looks as If be
might be a little crazed."
While Colonel Templar stroked his mus
tache and pondered dubiously within him
self : "I wonder if I do look like a rogue?'
''Herbert! Dertiel don't you hear the door
bell? Bertie, I sayl"
The gentleman spostmphlsed as "Bertie"
was silting at an old fashioned mahogany
desk absorbed in a pile ol blotted manuscript,
witn oisoeveied natr, and middle Anger deep
ly stamen witn inn evidently young au.
thor, very much In love with bis profession
Directly before him stood tbe speaker, a
young lady o twenty-three or thereabouts
She waaezceedingly pretty, witb tbe In
nocent, dimple beauty of a white kitten or a
pet rabbit; blue-eyed, with a complexion
where faiut reset seemed to glow through
the transparent akin, and a mouth like a dash
of scarlet velvet, while ber lovely hair was
fattened stixight back, in a great lustrous
twist. SndithabUU evidently, but quite
pretty enough to excuse all defects of flour
sprinkled bands, and bair half loose.
"Door bell?' repeated the young man,
"Yea, some one to see the boose, I rip
pose, and I such a figure. Do please, go to tbe
door, Bertie; that's a jewel; Mary bas gone to
tbe grocer's and see what a stale I'm in."
She held up both dimpled hands, and nod
ded archly In the glass at a huge flury patch
on the peaob-bloomcbeek.
'There it goes agalul Do make haste
Bertie, and on your life, don't show any one
into tbe kitchen. Tell 'em It's a gem of a
little klU ken, but don't let 'em in: for the
cike is half made and the bread is half
baked, and I'm balr distracted; and the roU
liug-pin aud and spire-boxes, and egg-beaU
era are laying around loose, and there."
And the young lady expedited matters
with a push that luft white dots from her five

"The dear alment-minded gooset" she pon
dered as she Uuttered down suirs into tbe
kilcben, "if there's any lubtake lo be made

Celoael T.mnlar smiled.
- "1 should like lo iiitpeol the rooms; that
i. if it', 'uite iimvcuiriU."
I believe those are the stairs, and oh,
her art tha parlors."
Sydney Templar glanced carelessly around
the lofty rooms, thinking they would suit
bis ambitious little cousin eery well, when
suddenly a portrait hanging over tha carved
marble mantle-piece caught his eye.
He did not articulate the syllables, but
they sounded through his brain as If a
thousand silver-tongued bells had pealed
them forthl Yea, it was Marion Caryl, with
th bright golden rlirlets floating awav from
her fab7,, blue-veined temples, and the rose
mouth ready to break into smiles that were
answered by tbe dewy spaikle in her eyes.
"Hanen uaryrr be repeated vaguely to
hlmself. . And this is Marion's bouse, and
Marion's husband is leading me through the
rooms. How dreamlike It seemat"
"I'm afraid yon are tired," said hooest
Bfrtie, looking compassionately at Sydney's
aeben pals face, and wondering be hd not
noticed how colorless It was.
"A little tired," stammered Colonel Tem
plar, feeling the hot blood rush to his brow
ones mare. "But no matter do not let me
detain yon. I believe yea said the rent
"I haven't tha least Idea. I believe It's
either one hundred or eighty. 1 know we
pay fifty, bnt the landlord Is going to raise
it; and parion ana 1 are thinking or a tar

"Marion's husband is not a man of bui
neas," thought Sydney.
"Marion s husband ( ' bow tha words cut

'Weil. I'll ask Marlon sbe knows.-' said
Herbert "Now, then, I'll take yon down
into the lower department"
Ob, Bertie, Bertie, Bertie, bad yon already

Pretty Marion, screwing tbs top oa one
of her spioe -boxes, heard tbe andvancing of
rooUteps with a sudden tbriU or apprehen.
"It can't be possible tft that goose Bertie
has forgotten what I told him," she thought.
"He has, though, as suis as the sun is shin
ing and I m caught"
Marion dropped bee box of fragrant all
spice, and looked with wide open eyes of
dismay at aer 010 apron.
"They are coming," sbe stammered, tam
ing alternately rod and white. "There's no

And our little heroine, ignominonsly tak

kitchen floor, and hid herself among pre

setting ber little white teeth together like
beligeraut pearls, as the two gentlemen en
tered into the kitchen, and she heard their
voices discussing tha relative merits of
stoves and ranges.
"By tbs way," said Herbert, suddenly. "I
believe these an soma nice closets down
here, at least Marion says so, and hullo,

He gave it a a jerk. Marlon's two hands
held resolutely on the door knob on the
other side. Another resolute pull, full of
well directed energy, and the two little bands

Bertie staggered back in the middle of tbe

the blue eyes, half bidden by their while

smile; for Marion did not know whether she
most wanted to cry or laugh.
'Sydney, oh, 8ydney."
He bowed gravely.

"What fellows you soldiers are for sticking

"Not married! Oh, Marlon."

I Inclose for publication in the Appeal the
names ot such f ennesseans as are still to be
traced on the beadbaorda which remain on
tbs field of Chickamaugs, I obtained it
from Miss Mary Green, one of tbe trustees of
tbe Georgia Memorial Association. Aa sr.
fort is being now made to remove the Confed
erate dead from the battle-field of south
Chlckamanga to a cemetery recently estab
lished in Mrrietta. About one hundred and
fifty graves can be Identified. A religious
duty invites our people to help forward this
good work. Our people nave utile consola

fought bravely and perished nobly. They
were champions of a cause to which tbe
Southern hearts clung with unshaken faith,
until tbe but whisper or nope was nusbed,
and tbe "conquered banner" was lowered in
tbe shadow of despair. It Is our dnty before

Mrs. Galloway, and Mrs. Law, of Memphis,
will mnke some effort to assist tha ladies

Tbey are tailing, slowly falling,
Thick wpoei the fbreit side,
Severed from the nobis branches,
Where they wave in tx-auteons pride.
They are falling In tbs valleys,
Where the early violets spring
And the birds in tunny spring-time,
First their dulcet music slug.
Tbey are falling, sadly falling,
Close beside our cottage door;
Tale and faded, like the loved ones,
They have gone forever more.
They are fttlling, and the sunbeams
Shine in beauty soft around J
Yet the faded leaves are falling, , .
Falling on tbe mossy ground.
They are falling on the streamlet,
Where tbe silvery waters flow,
And upon tbe placid bosom
Onward witb tbe blue waters go.
Tbey arc railing in the cfaurcb-yard,
Wheie our kindred sweetly sleep,
Where tbe Idle winds of summer,
Softly o'er the loved ones sweep.
They are falling, ever fulling' -
When the autumn breexes sigh,
When the stars in beauty glisten
Bright upon the midnight sky.
They are filling when the tempest
Moans' like ocean's hollow roar,
When tbs tuneless wlinds and billows
Sadly sigh forever more.
They are falling, they are falling,
W bile our saddened thoughts still go
To the sunny days of childhood,
In tbs dreamy long ago.
And their faded hnea remind as
Of tbe blasted hopes and dream
Faded like tbs falling leaflets
Cast upon lbs icy streams.

correspondence relating to tbe removal of Mr.

Nearly all the correspondence has heretofore,

To bis bis Excellency Andrew Johnson
President ot tbe United State.
"Sir I take tbe liberty or addressing yon
privately oa the subject of the conversation
we had this morning, reeling, aa I do, the
great danger to the welfare of the country
should you carry out the designs then sx
pressed. "First On tbe displacement of the Secre
tary of War. His removal ean not be effoc
ted against his will, without tbs consent of
tbe Senate. It was but a short time since
tbe United State. Senate was In session, and
why not tben have asked for his removal, if .
it was decided on? It certainly was tbs in
tention of the legislative branch of Ihe Gov-
eroment to place Cabinet ministers beyond '
the rracb of executive removal: and it is
pretty well understood, so far as Cabinet
ministers are affected by tbe terms of Ten.
ure oi oince mul mat it .was intended to
protect Ihe Secretory of War. whom tha '
country felt great confidence in. The mean.
lug or the law may be explained away by an
astute lawyer, but common sense, and tbs
views of loyal people, will eiva to it ma af. '
feet intended by its frainars.
"Second On the subject of tbe removal
of tbe very able commander or tbe Fifth Mil- '
itary District, let me ask you to consider ma
effect it would bare upon tbe public He Is
universally ana deservedly beloved by Mm
people who sustained this Government
throughout its trial, and feared by those who
could still be enemies of the Government.

ministration has given equal satisfaotioa. Uo
bus bud difficulties to coutend with wiiich no
other district oommauder bas encountered..
Almost, If not a ii lie. from the day ha was.
appointed district commander to the preient '
ume, tbs press bas given ont tbat be was to
be removed i tbat the Administration was
dissatisfied with him. This bas emboldened
tbe opponents of tbs laws of Congress with
in his command to oppose him in every way
in tbelr power, and bas rendered necessary
meaturcs which otherwise might have beeu
"la conclusion, allow me tossy, as a
friend, desiring peace and quiet and the wel
fare of tbe whole country, North and Soulh,
that it la my opinion that the loyal people of
this country .1 mean those who supported
tbe country during tbe great rebellion will
not quietly submit to see ths men of all
others whom they have expressed their con.
uuence in, removed.
