"Two years ngj tome January, a

wiih a sharji breeze from the east,
which prevented many from going

' 'taint the Tilda, what brings coals to

" 'A salvage Ciise, perhaps,' says
Tie ; 'but we sliull hear nil about it di
rectly, as they are kiting down the

In a few minutes the boat was at
the shore, ai'd a inan with a thick
serge coat and very large buttons,
jumped out and walked up towards

J pluce any where hut at Newcastle, his
iiorac, hut altei some persuasion he
yielded the point, and the thing is all
settled ; so, as 1 must tell the sexton
to prepare a grave by half past three,
I must not talk any longer ; and real
ly, the scene. I have just come from
makes me feel that I should like to be
alone for a time. I am must thankful
to say that the conversation 1 had
with the poor fellow has done much
to make him tesigneh He had heard
Of me often before, he said, and on
his table 1 noticed my little tract on
resignation, which he told me, to use
his own words, hud been a balm to his
woan led spirit. Vr ry gratilying .was
it not ? Good morting to you, my
dear Lieutenant i good morning, my
good men, Le added, as we raised our
caps to him, and saw his kindly tacu
turn towards hyme,
"Before long the bell began to toll,'
and as I went home to my dinner
saw the sexton h uj at work at the
grave, which at the skippers request
was to be made on the side nearest ti,e
sea and farthest from the village,
since he told the vk'ar it would be so
comforting, win n his ship passed by
Klruin, 'to see the spot where his
Mary Ann was sleeping.'
"The report that thero was to be a
funeral from the sirange ship in the
oiling, spread like wildtire through the
village, and halt an hour before the
body was to leave the shin, the cliff
wa-i crowded by the villagers, the
women with their shawls lied over
their heads, leading their children by
their hands. v
"Funerals are always a great at
traction to our people, but since the
last Karl at the castle was buried,
none had caused so much merest as
this.
"'Poor Skipper Darley !' sas my
old woman, 'won't he feel lonesome
just, when he gets back to his ship
without his missus ?'
"'Werry,' says I, 'no doubt ; he
ain't been married more nor two
years. Lor, what a good sort of a fe
male she must have been, all the crew
seem so fond of her; look you heie,
old lady, through the glass. D'ye
see the ligure head of the vessel yon
der?' "'Yen,' says she, resting the glass
on my shoulder 'a figure ot w oiwan
in green gown and ya ler hair.'
"'That be no doubt, an exact iike
uessof Mary Ann Darley,' says I;
it's a very common pla , that, and as
old Cap'n liist, . as commanded the
Tilda years ago, used to say : "When
ever I follows my wile, I goes rigf ;
as I sticks her ul the end ol my wes
sel, the Tilda allers goes right.'.
44 'Lor 1' says my wife, again looking
through I lie glass, 'how beautiful Mrs.
Mary Ann Darley must have been I
Never did I sec such a bust, hair, and
hearings. They are coming at last,
the boats are Wing let down.'
"The church bells tolled sadly
through the kei n trusty air, And there
was not a heart among all those on
the cliff that did rut feel the deepest
sympath) lor the widowed skipper.
".Slowly, and with a long measured
stroke, came the two boats, into ihe
fast of w kieb we hud noticed tke cof
fin being lowered.
"The bier had been taken down to
ike shore so, when they had all landed,
the coffin w as placed upon it, and
borne up the gang way by four of the
crew.
"The other four came leJiifid ; the
skipper, who appeared dreadfully sgi-
Uied, lent heavily on the arm of the
man with tlie big biKtons, , his face
busied in his hauukerthief, from
which ut times we could hear a deep
sob.
"Up the little street The procession
went, and among all the women there
was not an eye that was not filled w ith
tears.
"Poor fellow T said toy wifj, 'he
Jotakeon lrrib!rtlti sure, I hat ke

"The bell began once more to toll,
as the sexton tided up the grave, and
hid from the admiring sight of the
boys the rows of brass nails, which
told that Mary Ann Darley was cut
off at the early age of twenty-six.
"'Cut off as a tulip,' said the sex

nasacd the coast-Kuiini station 1 saw
the Lieutenant watching the ship,
which had not yet started, lie called
me up into the guardroom where he
was seated. 'Bill,' says he to ' me,
'three of my men unfortunately are at
Dai ling this week. I must have at
least live men to-night ; so if jou wish
to earn a good night's wages, be down
at my house before eight this even
ing.' "llefore the appointed time I was
at the Lieutenant's house; four of the
coasi-guards wire seated round the
kitchen fiie, each armed with a mus
ket and cutlass.
"'This is tor you,' said the Lieu
tenant, handing me a cutlass and long
pistol ; 'now lollow me.'
"'Where are we to go to?' said I
to the man with whom 1 had to walk.
"'To church,' says he.
"'To church ?' says I. 'What u
rum go 1'
"A ruin go, indeed,' says he; 'on
ly it's orders not to talk, so don't ax
more questions.'
"It was a clear night, and the frosty
tomb-stones looked like ghosts as we
entered ihe church, the key of which
Ihe Lieutenant had got. In a few
minutes we were seated round the
stove in the vestry, w hich we had
lighted. A window wus just opposite
where I was sitting I could see the
light of the strange ship in the ofliug,
and a few yards befoie us was the
new made grave of the skipper's
wife.
"I think we must have sat more
than three hours, when I noiieed the
light on the ship, which it was my
turn to watch, moving ; and through
ihe night-glass I could see that about
was being lowered into the sea! I
called lite attentioil of ihe Lieutenant
to this fact, who said, "All t ight," I
thought so ; but, as they won't think
of landing nearer than the ruins, w e
shall have to wait some time yei, 1 11
he bound. j
"In less than an hour Jrf'er this,
just ns the clock was chiming twelve, :
I distinctly saw four figures clamber- ;

them stopped short, andhid themselves 1
under the shadow of an old to i b-)

(Southern News and Opinions.
The Georgia Coii(itiitiniint of
June 2'Jih discusses the military situ
ation with extraordinary fairness, for
a rebel paper. It thinks it quite
lime to stop deluding the people of
the Souih with false hopes ami to look
ut affairs soberly. It is not able lo
see anything amusing in the situation..
It concedes that Grunt has great ad
vantages in his present position, iu
fact lias the game in Li- own lau ds.
and can put Lee under siege. Ii
J proceeds to say, very sensibly :

chides to swap cupitols, and Riving
Grant Richmond, starts off aluad of
him for Washington, we will have the
army to subsist in desert waste be
tween I he two capitals ; have (omake
time on foot that will heat Ihe trans
ports on the Potomac ami Chesa
peake ; have the fortifications of
Washington lo storm, and a siege to
stand there should we get inside. We
lose Richmond if we ho'tftjie Weldou
and Danville railroads ; we lose the
railroads if we save Richmond, or we
attack Grant in his trenches if we try
to save both. It is true that General
1'eauregard eowld still keep south ot
Grant, and prevent raids into Caroli

enough men to attack Grant in re
verse, and place him between two
