WINNSBORO, S. C., APRIL 26, 1881.
LOVE IN ALL.
Name the leaves on all tlie trees,
Name the waves on all the seas,
All the flowers by rill that blow,
All the myriad tints that glow,
Winds that wander through the grove
And you name the name of love;
Lotve there is in Summer sky,
As in light of maiden's eye,
Listen to the countless sounds
in the wind that gayly bounds
O'er the meads. where on the wing,
Bright bees hum and linnets sing;
Pat of raindrop, chat of stream,
Of their song, sweet love's the theme;
Love there is where a6phyr skips,
As in breath of maiden's lips.
In the West, mild evening glows;
Angel Angers fold the rose;
Silvery dews begin to fall;
Orimeou shades to shadow all;
Holy Nature veils her face ;
Earth is lost Heaven's embrace
Love Is in an hour like this,
As in guileless maiden's k's.
Go where, through the voiceless night,
Trips fair Luna's silver ligLt ;
Hear of Nature's pulse the beat,
Like the tread of unseen feet ;
Boo from out the lambent North
himmering arrows shoot ng forth:
Love Is in a meteor's start,
As in trob of maiden's heart.
Love's the essence of all things ,
''ir from love ti at beauty springs;
'I'was by love. creat on first
Jnto glorious being burst :
Veiled in-miden's forms so fair,
I do worship thee in her,

Love is Gad, since God is love?

evening they had that skating party, but
this last prank is still worse, if possible.'
Mrs. Delnayne folded her plump white
hands and settled herseff comfortably in a
luxurious easy chair, and prepared to enjoy
her favorite pas.iie, which consisted of re
tailing Dorothea's misdemeanors.

A veteran captain of the Fourteenth In
fantry has been in Omaha for the past two I
weeks, having been sunnoned, at the it

the disabling of one arm, the bone between I
the elbow and shoulder having been shat- f
tered, and four or ive inches of it removed I
at one. time and another since he was 1
wounded a year ago. The wounds in
question were received in a duel fought at r
Fort Douglas, Utah, on the twenty-sixth of C
lat March, in which Captain Western and c
the surgeon, Dr. Lecompte, were princi- 1
pals. Though the affair has been kept d
quiet so far as possible, reporto, and cor- c
rect ones, have been made public, and the I
real facts of the case will be no longer a i
secret when the examination Is over. t
Te duel arose over a lady-the pretty,
high-tempered wife of one of the officers fo l
the post. While the officers and their la, lies
were dining one day, Dr. Lecompte awk- f
wardly stepped on her dress, and received
a sharp rebuke for It, whereupon he apolo- j
gized. Captain Wevtern was drawn into
the quarrel which ensued, and he and the t
surgeon were placed in antagonism, and it
became noised about that a Ohallenge to v
fight a duel had been issued, and that shoot- g
ing would grow out of the affair the first
RMAftermatters had a
their guard, and after a word or two, while
both men were at close quarters, revolvers d
were drawn and fired.
The Captain's shot passed through the j
Doctor's right hand and entered his side,
while the Burgeon's bullet missed its
mark. At the next lire the Surgeon's shot
shattered the Captain's arm, and the next
entered the Captain's side. The Captain
fell and the Doctor, whose pistol hand was
wounded, discontinued the duel. Since
that time Captain Western has been practi
cally incapacitated for duty. ' The merits
of the case will not be fuly ascertaliedti un
til the Retiring Board finishes Its session.
No. 1 was a she-cat of the brindled kind,
which I believe Is the Scottish breed. She,
like Nlmrod, was a mighty hunter. Uares,

often were, they were appropriated, while
Pussy sang her song of pleasure ; if they
were not worth keeping, they were given
back to hear, and she devoured them with a
relish. She ate none till they were- litfted
and then thrown down to her again. She
was fond of fish, but, unlike other cats,
she was willinig to wet her feet for themi.
