"Harriet," he said; with an bnco'n
aaioua tremor in tbesyllables, "I came "
"Ezcose m), air,' mterposfd Miss
Deane, with studied ceremony, "I.am
particularly bnsy connting these stitches
if yon wonld be ao obliging as not to

Ail nnversed as he was in the devions
windings of feminine natnre, John Car
lyle instinctively felt that thia waa no
auspicious season for the furtherance of
his anit.
" I'll try sgain tonight," he mused ,
walking homward. "She won't be do

go away in snch tortnring sappense as
this. Sho is vexed about (he shoulder

The clear January sky was jeweled with
frosty stare, and the solemn old ehrtrch
clock had jnat chimed the hour of nine
from its dim belfry, when he entered the
bright room, with its mossy blue carpet
and hangings of aznre silk, and Parisian
statuettes hidden by vases of vivid crim
son roses.
It was not empty, however, as he had
hoped and expected. Lieutenant Armour
stood in the middle of the apartment, de
cidedly ccrnseiotis of his fine new shoulder
straps, and patronizing a half dozen pret
ty girla. He nodded laughingly 'to Car
lyln, and went 'On with the sentence which
the new arrival had interrupted.
"Leap-Year! to be sure ft is. And I
may as well stare at bnca that I am quite
ready to receive any proposition you
ladies mny have to make."
Nonsense. Gilbert!" said Mary EI-phinston-.
his cousin.
" Nonsense, eh? Well, I'm glad yOn

He looked at Harry Deane as he spoke,
half in earnest, half jsttingly. John Car
lyle's eye followed the direction of his, as
tiy a sort of fWinntion, and saw the rose
tint mnnnting to Hnrry'ai, cheek, and the
pmpld-blue eyes hidden by their white
How long he stood there with a. giddy
pain surging through his brain, and a
chill at his heart, as of a cold hand grasp
ing at its fibres, he did not know ; it
might have been five minute., or it might
have been five hours ; but he waa roused
by the breaking np of the little party, the
sound of merry voicaa and playful aMieuz.
Harry Denna was standing nndsr tbe
chandelier, one light band resting on tha
carved hack of a Gothic chair Gilbert
Armour lounged on a sofa, where the
blue ailk curtains swept over tbe entrance
to a bay-kvindow. As . John Carlylr
pressed rforward, Miis Elpbinstone laid
her hand on his arm softly.
"Mo, no," she whispered, archly,
"don't you see it's an understood matter
with Gilbert .and Harry? Give me your
arm home, for Gilbert will never; think
of me again."
John Carlyle turned silently away,
with white lips and clenched teath, blind
to tbe wistful glance, that shone through
Harry's lashes, the uncertain quiver of
h-r lip ! ,t

tbe kind-hearted touk cadet made no
impression on hit fading -mind ; he.heard
what they said, aaif thy had been talk
ing of aome one else: There waa no vo-
llition no intellect. Life aeened bbiar
away from hia, m tbe sparkling, tide
goae creeping creeping from nnder the
atrandtxi boat. J ,
All, t bnoa .there-came a sudden, aharp
pain, as toe surgeon a keen tnstrumeat
cleft the arm. and than followed inaemi-
bility. "' "'
,r "Ten to one be'II die," said the snr.
geon, indifferently, aa be .replaced the
glittering tools. "There's no use ban
daging it ao' carefully."
But the young, cadet knelt, down to
fasten the. wrappings, wondering in" his
eecret heart. if tbe" time .Would t ever come
when he, too,' ahonld. apeak ih carelessly
of a'fsllow-creatcre'a Ijfe. God-given.!"
John Carlyle did not die, the grim. old
aurgeon to the contrary, notwithstanding.
There had been a glorious thunder
shower. Along the west hung heavy
draperies of violet bla'ck clond'. eTdged'with
dstzling'fringeaof gdld,vwhilo'" the blue
zenith, smiling' through,' its "brief tsara,
seemed literally'to'awim in liquid light.
And from far-off apple orchards, pink
with billows of tossing bloom, and snnny
slopes all empnrpled with 'wild violets.
came sudden. sweeps of .fragrance on the
city winds, carrvine tha .Wall, Street
jobberaand shrivelled rnonev-makers back
to tne urao wnen ipey were noys, looKiog
for the first strawberry" blossom" under
the canopy of the old apple tree ! -
The first breeze.-eddying fantastically
into the wide, open.,hotel window,, lifted
the damp masses of hair on, John Car
Iyle'e" wasted forehead, as he sat in the
easy chair beside the casement, and passed
its cool fingers "softly over his burning
temples, as if tit fain would whisper,
" don't repine any longer! Look out on
the glad, bine sky, ,and feel Heaven's
healing sunshine on your cheek I"
And if man ever heeded Nature's silent
monitions,. John'Carlyle waa no-exception
to ,the general rule.
"A common priyajo! those were her
very words," he murmured to himself,
witb a faint crimson spot burning on his
wan cheek '.tmndtcrippled nowior life !
Ah,it was well that, I drew back Into
the ahadow of tbe curtains, whsn I heard

He laughed bitterly, si the perpetually
recurring coviction pressed' itself upon
his mind a laugh that waa almost a aob.

Tbe Richmond Dispatch of June, 1862,
"In the early part of this war. Gen.
McOlellan wrote to a distinguished off
cerjn the South, ezpressing his desire to
ssrve in the Confederate army. If he
dare deny the fact and .hia recent re
ports prove that in mendacity ha Is the
represntative man of tha Yankee nation
it can ba demonstrated by such evidence
as will close his lips in eternal silence.
When he waa at West Point he affected
to fraternize especially witb those from
tbe Sontb, and, to hava little sympathy
with those from bis own section. We
say thia was genuine, and that ha really
was anzioua to serve under Jen. Davis in
this war, bnt tbe high bribe offered by
Lincoln waa too mnch for his easy virtue.
Ha was not tbe man to sacrifice interest
to sentiment, and of late has shown a
disposition to become as extreme in his
antagonism a's in his friendship for the
i The Richmond Wbeg quoted the above
and added:
"After tbe battle of Rich Mouatain.
McOlellan declared to Confederate offi
cers, who were prisoners of war, that "he
.would. much rather be leading, air army
against Massachusetts thsn Virginia."
This can be jirove'n by unimpeachable
authority if denied. This boasted soldier
and "gentleman" of -the North, is as
much a hireling and adventurer aa any
Hessian in, his ranks: If he has .any
conscience, it rebukes him daily .for the
oaae wore in which ne is, employed.
When to the pangs of remorse, are added
the shame of defeat, bis condition will be
snch .as even an enemy may pity."
The above, paragraphs went the rounds
of the' Northern press; and we bava ner

their "challenge accepted by Gen. McClel
laa.or any of his friends.

NOVEMBER 10, 1864.
Tav ataa that Win
tmavt mt t9aii4Mir
A little elevation at the right of the
railway was the scene of one of tha moat
heroic exploits of the wsr. Then Col.
Iaaie warned by the old negro I have
introduced to tbe reader with a little
band of three hundred aad eigbty-niae
wcoigan men, witnout artinary or otner
defences except a heavily throwa np bar
ricade of camp-wagons and naderbraah,
beat off Wbeeier'a force of 3,000 kona
aad two field pieces..
"Col. Innis," said Gen. Roaecrana to
him, on tbe eve of tbe battle of Stone
River, "will yon bold Lavergne ?"
"I'll try. General."
"I ask you if yon will do it ?" exclaim
ed tha laconic General.
"I will," quietly responded the Colo
nel, and he kept his word.
Just as tbe New Year's ana was send
ing its first greeting to the little baad
that crouched there behiad tha wsgoas,
ths bead of tbe rebel column emenred
from tbe woods which skirt the southern
side of the town, and Capt. Firman, rid
ing forward to tha' flimsy breastworks,
cried out:
"Gen. Wbeeler demands an instant
and unconditional surrender."
"Give Gen. Wheeler my compliments,
and tell him we don't surrender much,"
csme bsck to him from behind ths brash
hssps. .Mouotiog then his Kentucky roan, the
heroic Colonel rode slowly sronnd the
rude entrenchment. "Boys," he ssid,
"they are three thousand have yon said
yonr prayers ?"
"We are ready, Colenel. Let them
come on 1" answered the brave Michigan
Aad they did come on 1
"Six times we swept down on them,"
said Capt. Firman, Wheeler's aid, to ms,
"and sis times I rode up with a flag and
summoned them to surrender; bnt each
time Innis sent back tbe message, varied.
now and then with an adjective, "We
don't surrender much," Ha sst on bis
horse dnring ths first charges sa if on
dress psrsde; but st the third I saw him
go down. I thonght we bad winged him,
bnt when we charged again, there he sat.
as cool ss if the thermometer hsd been at
zero. One of our men took deleberate
aim, and again be went down: but when
I rode up the fifth time and shouted
"We II not summon yon again surren
der at onoe !" it was Innis who yelled
ont, "Pray don't, for" we don't surrender
At the seventh chsrge I was wounded,
and tbe General sent another officer with
the summons. Yonr peon1 halted him
a few hundred yards fm the breast-work,
and an officer, in a csvalryman'a over
coat, came out to meet him. "They
had killed two horses," said Col. Innis
to me afterward, "and I was afraid they
would singe my uniform the fire was
rather hot so I covered it."
"What is your rank, sir?" demsnded
the Union officer."
"Major, air."
"Go bsck and tell Gen. Wheeler that
he insults me by sending one of yonr rank
to treat witb one of mine. Tell him, too.
I have not come here to sarrender. I
shall fire on the next flag."
"It waa Innis, and by that rase he
made us believe he had received reinforce
ments. Thinking it wss so, Wheeler
draw off, and ths next Jay Innis sent
word by a prisoner that he had whipped
us with three hundred and eighty-nine

One freezing February morning, a ne
gro hawked mutton-pies in a basket
round Faceuil Hall Square, roaring out,
" Hot mutton-pies I Hot mutton-piea 1"
A teamatsr bought and tried (o bite one,
but found it frozen as hsrd as the curb
stone. "What do you call them bot for?
yon black and blue swindler!" yelled
the teamster to the ehivering pieman,
" Wy-wy a white man guv 'em to me
bot dia mornin' day waa hot wen I got
'em dis mornin' I" "Well, von old
fool, it didn't takejten minutes to freeze
them in that old basket. Why call them
hot now?"" n Wy God brass yon, tfaf

Tbcrft is with- the Democratic party.
They received from Jefferson and Jack
son, ss a free gift, tbair principles. Those
gifts they meanly put np for esle, and
hawk around in tbe deadly market of
alavery, to frevze up in their ahabby old
party basket. They roar out, " Demo
cratic principles 1 Democratic princi
ples!" for sale being understood. And
whan yen pay tha price of your vote for
them, you find alavery benumbing your
fingers, paralyzing yonr tongue, contract
ing yonr heart, and turning your stom
ach. Ask the swindlers why they csll
sach stuff Democracy, and they tall yon
blandly that Mr. Jefferson gere them tbe
original article that, they have kept it
ever since tbst it is just as good as new,
only not quite so wsrin perhaps and
that yon really mustn't quarrel with tbe
pitman, for wbat ha. calls it is its -name.
If yon wsnt it more Democratic, you
may take it home to your own State and
warm it ; bnt in tbe meantime don't in
terrupt the tlavtt.
Wben Farragnt. wss notified of the

Buchanan's sword. On learning of Buc

if be would" go off and see him. Farragnt
looked along bia decks, strewn with dead,
dying and mangled comrades, aad. red
witb tbe blood, of others' who had fallen
and beea removed, and than replied:
"With these brave men before me, killed
and mangled by him, I consider him but
