I know. ! 1 don’t pan out on the propheta And free-will and that sort of thing— But I b’lieve in Clod and the angcla, Evei aence one night last Spring. I route into town with aome turnipa, And my little Labe came along— No four-year-old in the country Could beat him' for pretty and atrong. ' Peart and chipper and aasay. Alwaya ready to awear and fight— And I larnt him to chaw terbacker, Jeat to keep hia milk-teeth white. The auow come down like a blanket Aa I pasaed by Taggart’a atore, I went in for a Jug of motaaaea And left the team at the door. They Beared at. something and started— I heard one little squall, And hell-to-eplit over the prairie Weutteum, Little-Breeches and all. Hell-to-split over the prairie I I wan almost froze with sheer; Rut we rousted up some torches, And sarched for ’em far and near. At last we struck horses and waggon, .Snowed under a soft white mound, Up sot, dead beat—but of little Uabe No hide and huir was found. And here all hope soured on me. Of my fellow-critters’ aid— 1 jest flopped down on my marrow-bones, Crotch-deep in the snow and prayed. * * • • » By tliis, the torches was played out, And me and Isrul Parr Went off for some wood to a sheep fold That he said was somewhar tbar. We foifnd it at last, and a little shed Where they shut up the lambs at night. We looked in, and seen them huddled thar. So warm and sleepy and white. And thar, sot Little-Breeches and chirped As peart as ever you see, “1 want a chaw of terbacker, And that’s what's the matter of me.” How did you git thar? Angels. He could never have walked in that storm. They jest scooped down and toted him To whar it was safe and warm. And 1 think that saving a little child.

To the Editor of the Journal. Esteemed Friends I left Richmond on the loth, stopped one night at Louisa Court House,then proceeded, arriving at the ill-fated . Manassas last evening, which Flnenix like has again become quite a place. With private team awaiting, took passage to the present spot of writing. To-day, with a guide en gaged in the contest I have visited the spot of each scene of conflict in the first great battle of this place. In rainy weather the stream here tukes such a sudden rise and the water* come rushing down with such a roar, hence its name, Bull Run. While seated on the very spot where the famous black horse cav alry met with such fearful slaughter, I remem bered the law of philosophy ‘‘that action and reaction are equal in opposite directions.” Evidently since the terrible din of the cannons t roar and musketry of that day, nothing has disturbed the solemn stillnes of the place save the silent plowshare and pruning knife. We found many relics of the war on this spot, and many human bones are still bleaching in in the sun upon this field. My guide was in an Ohio Regiment and were I to record all that he says he saw, in detail, it would weary you and I think you would agree with me that he saw too much for one man. The house and trees in the vicinity, however,speak very truthfully of the hard knocks received. One oak had a hole directly through the center of its trunk—probably a six pound ball passed that way. I visited the house where a wo man was killed, in her bed by a cannon ball, she being sick at. the time. The day has been one of the finest, and I have walked many miles, tracing the track of the army from Centerville along the War rington pike to the scene of combat and lis tened to many minute discriptions of the va ' rious positions and work of the contending forces. With this account you will believe me when I say I am too tired to write much, to mutt beg to be excused. With the kindrst regards, your friend, Sahcel H. Jonas. WANTED!
