Au operation was Hpeedily pel formed. The leg was am putated at the up. per thiril, everything being dona to tho hiilT' ier that science and persuiia! regard could (suggest and the rudii circumstances permitted. htill there wan very little hope. Though Ins natural vigor was in his fa vor, his very size mid u.ucular strength on which he had prided himself were against him, lor it whs computed that over sixty-four Mpmro inches of flesh were laid bare by the surgeon's knife. And it was alto found that his right h uid had 1" tn seriously injured, tho botics ol three lingers and of tho mid uiu hand being fractured und commi nuted. Tho opperation already per formed hud been so severe that it was thought best not to attempt tho treat ment of the hand until it was seen whether or not he would rally from the shock of the wounds and the amputa tion. We returned to our camp about nightlall ; the journey was a terrible trial to the wounded man. An ambu lance uuder the most favorable, cireuui- fctancea is hardly a "downy bud of en'," and the jolting this remount of a nuui for wile ittross tbo country. over fence's and walls half lorn down, and across dttchus partially filled with rails, reduced the chances of his life to hardly one in a thousand, bis immedi ate death beiug cxpectod every mo ment. But, sustained by btouuhinls ami his indomitable courage, at last in the daikneas bo retched the army lines Fortunately a house was accessible, and the use of a vacant room in the second story was obtained, whero Be dell was placed on a tick hastily stuff e 1 wi'h straw and resting on tho floor. And to the surprise of every ono bo survived the night ; a little hope oven of saving bin life was awakened. On the second day after tho skirmish the surgeone decided to attempt the ro bftbil.tution of the shattered hand. A finger or two were removed, the Urokeii bones were aljnsted, nnd tho phtient rallied in good spirits from the second administration of chloroform uud shock to the system. But bis struggle for life was only just commenced. After a few days of such rest as his miserable pallet could afford, orders were issued, iu prepara tion for the coming li.tttie of the Ope quan, that all sick and wounded should be at ouce removed to Harper's Fer ry, twenty miles distant Arfiy wag ons and ambulant were therefore loaded with the unfortunates, and an attempt was made to transport l'"or j wiuilt)d and .henmatic that be was not Ld any credit for so doing, and that Bedell with the rest.

A Rebel among Heliels, there was a woman who most nobly ploved herself to unite with a tender heat t the rarest coinage and perseverance beyond account. Mrs. Bettro YanMette was a Yirgin ian, born iu tLe I.urav Yalley, scarcely twenty at the tini't in question, and of j bo willing to give, aud although tho atirnclivo personal appeal mice. Shejchauc.es were even that tbo gifts would had been educated ill comfortable fir cnmstiiiiees, nnd before the war ber husband bad been moderately wealthy, but now bis farm was as barren as a desert, not n fence to bo seen, and noth ing to protect hud any enclosure re mained ; there wits a mill upon the premises, but the miller had gone to fight for bis conn; ry, as he believed, itud there was now no grain left iu the country to be ground. Officers, who had called at ber door, remarked the brave attempt at cheerfuluess which so manifestly struggled with her sorrow, and treated ber grief with deffurcuue. For this delicately nurtured girl was living alone in the midst of war ; bat tles had raged around her very dwell ing ; she was entirely at tho mercy of thosa whom she had been taught to be lieve to be ber deadly enemies, and who held her husband aud brother prisou- Icrs iu Fort Delaware, taken while fight ing the Confederate army, the brother being, until long, after this time, sup posed to be dead. Her only compan ion was a little girl, perhaps ten years of age, ber neice. There this young woman and child were waiting in their anxiety und desolation, waiting aud praying fur peace. We should hardly expect tho prac tice of active, laborious, gratuitous be nevolence under such circumstances, but we shall see. It is not kuown bow Mrs. YanMetre learned that a Union officer was dying of wounds nnd neglect in the bouse of her neighbor, but no sooner had she niiido the discovery than all her wo manly sympathy was aroused. As she would have longed to have her husband or her brother treated under similar circumstances, so she at once resolved to treat their foe. She would not be moved by the sneers aud taunts which were sure to come, but she would have bim at ber own bouss und save bim if she could. iho Lieuteuant had now boon en - tirely neglected for a day or two or j were most intense, as wo learned from longer ; he bad resigned himself to j her simple story, that our favorite who death, when this good woman entered j was dead was alive again, and felt how his chamber and with kindly words ; tIJUCh true heron-m hi r modest words called back his spirit from the mouth of, concealed.

The picque had heeu seduced by bur eloquence to send her to Headquarters tinder charge of a guard which watch- ed her carefully us a probable spy. Tho Ueueral in command had seen nt to al low her to carry awuy such trifling ar ticles as the Commission people would be used iu building up somo wouuded rebel, still the earnestness and appar ent truthfullnesa of her entreaty for re lief overbore all scruples ; tho old fash ion vehicle was loaded with tho wished for supplies, aud tho suspicion guard escorted the cargo beyond the lines. The trip wai thereafter repeated week by week, and when letters were at length received in answer t those deposited by tho fair messenger, post marked among the Green Mountains, her triumph was complete, and her draft good for anything the Sanitary treasury contained. Tho only linger ing doubt was in regard to tho enor mous amount of whiskey the invalid required. Mrs. YanMetre, however, explained that it was needed lor diplo matic as well bs medicinal purposes. Of course it had been bruted about among the neighbors that the miller's wife was nursing a Federal officer. Iu that region uow ubandoned to' the rule of Mosby and his men, coneealmen'. was essential. Therefore tli WJ men who had heard of the convalescent must bo taken iuto confidence end pledged to secrecy, a course rendered possible only by the liberal use of the Spirilut Frumenti. Uuder the influ ence of such liquor as had not been guzzled in the Yalley since tho peace ful days of Buchanan, the venerable rascals were easily convinced that such a shattered life as that of the Liuuleu- ant could not greatly injure their be- Moved Confederacy. Five weeks after Bedell received his wounds, our army was encamped on Cedar Creek, and Sheridan was in Washington. Tho Lieutenant greutly needed bis valiso from our baggage wtigons. Therefore a journey ot twen ty miles up the Valley was planned, which brought our heroine and ber lit tle neice to the army again, with a few j words traced by the maimed right hand of her charge as her credentials. , Our feelings of wonder and admiration nut a..in to n.i.i;?,. il,,.i j me jj igu i com ion a oiy irom a military ,.,., ; . . , ,. ed valise was then at Winchester, but 1 Hlie ol.uiued it on her return.

If you do not want any slop ing-over, tako a pint of milk and put it in a big bucket There will be no slopping over then. Aud man who bus only a pint of feeling, iu an enormous bucket,' never slops over. But if a man is full of fueling, up to the very brim, how is he going to carry himself w ithout spilling ovwr ? He can not help it. There will bo dripping over the edges all the time. Aud as every flower or blade of grass rejoice when tho rain fulls upon it, so every recipient along the way iu which a uiuu with overflowing generous fueling walks is thankful for his bounty. How to carry a nature full of fueling;, and ad minister it without making mistakes, I do not kuow, you do not, nobody does, nobody ever did, and uobody ever will; so we must take it and get along a best we cau. Life is a kind of tig xag anyhoiv ; and we are obliged to resort to expedients, ami make experiments, aud learn from our blunders, which are inevitable. , We find out a great deal more from men's mistukss than from their successes. FoHTBVIT OF A VlLLAD LoAFEH. -Thfl Uitchfield (Conu.) oWiaW thus photo graps one of the institution of that wn: "There is a mm in this town who ets himself Up as the cetrsftr of pub lic tiiors's, and who publishes and con doms lbs shortcomings of bis fellow men. Ho is as situctitnouious as if he bad swallowed a conference meeting. Five hundred of tbo old, genuine, orig inal, hard -shell Pharisees boiled down to a half-pint, would make a wak do cocttou wheu compared with this iudi vi.Hial. He is so inpregnant with the odor of sanctity that one could scrape it off his clothes with a clam-shell. Yet this m m is the most inveterate losfer in tho whole town au inquisitive, pry ing, ni3!dlfisouifl, impudent nuisance, au intolerable gossip and busybody. If he sees two or more gentlemen talking together, he walks up and listens to their conversation. Ha has tho 'cheek' td a cast-iron Indian, llo is capable of interrupting the benediction at a wedding, to ask the bridegroom what foe hu ex poets to pay tho clergyman. Wo are not going to tell who this uiuu is ; if we should do so, some life insur ance company would gooblo bim for a peripatetic ugent, and we have too much philanthropy to Jo anything that might increase his opportunity to make bis fullow-rnen miserable, or to commit tho sin of cursing." Kkmoioci Gtiis. God thinks more of liie good than of the influential. They who give willingly love to give tpuckly. One instrument should always be with yon "Tim Golden Iliie." A Christian pound weighs sixteen ounces and is at least evenly balanced. Faith is as necessary to the soul as the sun is ko the world. Endeavor for the best, and provide against the worst Conscience in most men, Is hot the anticipation of the opinion of others. The Christian's cup may lw brimful of sorrow ; but for turn tb overflow ing drop is never edited. Tue gteatesl curse to ordinary Christians would be to relieve thetn at one of all earthly cares.
