On the extreme edjfe of the ciii ami iiient, on the aide nearest the eiit'iuy.a aeiitiuc paused iu hU walk and pwrt'd curioiialy out into the darkneai. Pahaw ! he id, il'i nothing hut a tlojj. He was rvsuminj; Lia walk w hen the mi pocI (jnadrtiitHi roe suddenly, and wa'kcd along on two feel, in a manner so unniii-takahly human, thai the aenlinel leveled hi musket once more, and shout ed, Halt! A tililll, (l!iilili-ll Voire 1-,'tid, Ain't f.")t none, nift-.i. Well, there now, citid tho sentinel, if it ain't Just a little dm key, and 1 guess Pvo fi ightened liim hull' to death. Come here Snow ball ! The i hild ricpt tip, and suid, Iremhliiifj ly "deed, Musn, I ain't pot nollin ler ;ih yr. Well, w ho nked you to five me any thing? Ver done ax me fcr t;ih jer sullln Jen' now, and I ain't frot nulllii 'cei' my elo'es what 1 got on. Well, you needn't fret; 1 don't want cm. Corporal of the guard! Post two. The sentinel hastened to post two, and found the sentinel w ith tits liuud on the shoulder of a little black hoy, who, be tween fear, fatigue and hunger, wiig un able to jjivo any account of himself. Pll tuke him to Captain Eeixh, the eorpond said; lie's officer of the day. Maybe he'll be able to get something out ol'hiiu. Tho captain mood In front of his tent, looking out into Iho night, when tho cor poral and his charge approached. Captain, said he, here's a boy Just come into the lines. Very well, you can leave him here. At tho Hist sound of the cap tain's voice the boy drew nearer to him, as knowing instinctively that here ho had found a friend. You ran go into tho tent, said tho captain, and go to sleep till morning. What in your name? was Captain Leigh's first question tho next morn ing. Name Tok-e. Is that all? Pat's all, Mass Cap'n. How old are you? Dunno, Mass Cap'n. Nobody nebber done lole mc dat ar. Whero have you como from ? Cum rum do back o' Kichmon' Mass Cap'u. Wbat did you como here lor? All de res' ob 'cm tunned away; an' ole Mass ho wor so mad, I wor jest fear ed o' my life. 'Sides I fought I mought find my mammy cf I got 'niong der Unions. Where Is your mother? Dunno, Mass Cap'n. Ole Mass done sol' her down iu Georgy las' coru-shuck-in, an' I ain't nebber heerd of her sence. But I fought mebbe she mought ha' run. ned 'way too, an' I'd find her wid der Unions. Well, now, what arc you going to do. Dunno, Maes Cap'u. I'd like ter stay 'long wid you. What can you do? Kin wait on yer, Mass Cap'n ; kin shine np boots; an' brightening tip, as his eyes, wandering around, caught sight of the horses kin clean do bosses right smart. You arc not big enough to take care of a horse. 'Deed I is, Mass Cap'u ; and I ain't fear ed o' no boss. Olo Mass alius set me ter 'tend ter de dosses dat nobody else couldn't manage. Dey alius let me han dle 'em cf dey's eber so dcbblcsome. Jcs' yer try me, Mass Cap'n, an" seed I tolled yer de troof. If I keep you w ith me, you must bo a good boy and, do as 1 tell you. Deed I will, Mass Cap'n. I'se do ebcry word yer say, sho's yer bom. So when the troops left Harrison's Lauding Tobe went too, in chargo of tho Captain's horso and baggage; and when the steamer was fairly under way, he brightened Into a new creature, as every revolution of the wheel placed a greater distance between himself and olo Massa. Mass Cap'n, he asked one day, where is we gwino at? Either to Washington or Alexandria, I don't know exactly which. Will dar be one sto' up dar, Mas Cap'n. Ye, there are plenty of stores; what do yon want from one? Please, Mas Cap'n, please jes and he stammered and caught hie- breath, ap parently overwhelmed wilh the magni tude of desires. Well, out with it; what wonderful thing do you waul? Please, Mux Cap'n, jes buy me one banjo? Abitj'! what ou earth do you want of that? Kin play the banjo- right smart; an' dance too. Ki! Mam Cap'n, 1 play for yer all the lime. There 'd Ire rather too much of a good thing hi wut that. I yer g wine to get it lor me, M Cap'n ? I don't know. I'll see w hen we get there. ray-day came. Everybody got fixed np, and To)? fill heir to an old eavalry uniform. It didn't fit, to be sure. Th pantaloon esme up to hi shouldirt, and were rolk-d np In great bunch- around hia ankle. Tl Jaxkct came down to Li Lum; and the sleeve hung likejaw nsrir caverns into whWh hi liod di i appeared ao far that it wcnied doubtful If ; he would ever find lino agalu. Iitil there were the giit butiuua and cavalry , stripes, and Tobc'a inmost nonl rcjoice-i . j over tbem. lie wa so abaorbed ia his clotliea that ; he termed to have forgotten the banjo; j w hen one day, the Captain luddeuly held on up before him. Jliaeyet dilated till j they seemed to cover half the fare; and j he grasicd out, Yer gwine gi' me dat ar, j Mast Cap'n? You said you wanted a banjo, didn't jjou? j 1 known I axed yer fer buy mo one; but I fought mebbe yer wouldn't gi' me tho eloe au' de banjo loo. Well, which will you have tlio clothe or the banjo? Tobe answered never word, but pulled off his jacket and laid it at the Captain's feet. Captain Ix-igh langhed. Well bo said, if you want a banjo as bad as that you shall have it. Hem t.tk it. Wbar inns' I put d elo'es at Mas Cap'n ? You needn't put tbemViy where. Keep them on. Docs yer mean ter gi' juo the elo'es and de banjo, too? And understanding at last that it was really so, Tobe gave vent to Ills feelings in a prolonged Ki yl? then stood on his bead, kicking his heels in the air till, his voluminous garments proving too much for him, he lost his balance and rolled over. This sobered him. Ho picked himself up and walked off, carrying the banjo as if it were a baby. After that there was no hick of music. Tobe played all day, and only stopped at night ivhcn tho captain sent him to bed. It proved that Tobe had told the truth about his skill in taking care of horses. Captain Leigh's horso had never looked so well as now, and the raptain was de lighted. Tobe turned out, moreover, to be a very good boy. But the army is not a very good place for boys. So ono day Captain Leigh said, Tobe, how would you like to go North? Where's it at, Muss Cap'n? I mean my homo at tho North. When is yer gwine, Mass Cap'n? I am not goiug at all, now. Does yer mean ler sen' mo away from yer, Mass Cap'n? Capt Leigh was touched, and answered him very gently: Yc9, 1 want to send you away from mo now, because it will be better for you. but when tho war is over I shall go home, and then you can stay with mo always, if you are a good boy. I alius does jcs de f ings yer tell mo, Mass Cap'n. I know you do. And just because you do what I tell you so well, I want to 6end you to my home, to run of errands for my tvifc, and do wbat work she will give you in the house. And I Lava three chil dren; two littlo girls and a baby boy. I want you to go with them when they go out to play, and take care of them. My homo is in a very pleasant place in the country. Don't you think you will liko to go there? Ef yer goes too, Mass Cap'u, But, my boy, I can't possibly go now. I'so do jcs' do f ing yer say, Mass Cap'n. Ef yer tells me to go, I'se go. An' I'se do ebery word de missus say, and' look afer de chillens de bes' I knows, ontel yer comes dar. On'ly please como right soon, Mass Cap'n. And as tho Captain left the tent Toby laid bis face upon his banjo, and cried as if his heart would break. Captain Leigh found a brother officer who was expeeting to go home on a fur lough, and who readily agreed to take chargo of tho boy in whom his friend was so deeply interested. But that night thcro cumo news that mado everybody give up tho idea of fur loughs or going homo. Tho Richmond government, determined to make the North feel the war as sho had not felt it yet, had organized the grand raid. Au order came for Captain Leigh's reg iment to march at daylight Tobo, said the captain, you can go in one of tho baggage-wagons. Strap up my blunkct and poncho, and take them along; and these boots, take particular care of them, for it's not often that I can get a pair of cavalry boots to fit as they do. Y'er needn't be feared, Massa Cap'in; I'so take keer of 'em do bes' I knows. Tho main body of the raiders were re ported on the line of the (south Mountains making for Gettysburg. Scouting expe ditions were sent out Irom tho northern army In all directions; and a body of troops, including Captain Lelgh'a regi ment, were ordered to proceed by the shortest route to Gettysburg, and bead tho rebels off One of the baggage wagons broke down. The driver ol another wagon stopped to help his comrade. The troops pssscd on, and the two wagons were left alone on the mountain. Iu one of them was Tobe, with the captain's boots over which he kept constant watch. Tho men worked busily at the wagon, and Tobe sat watching them. Sud denly a trampling of horses feet was heard and a party of cavalry rarne round a turn ; in the road. That's good said one of the men ; there j are some of thobova. If they'll wait a few minutes, we can go along with 'em. j Taint none of our bovs, said the other, after a keen glance; them's reb. At the word Tobe slid down in the bot ; torn of the wagou under some blanket j and lay silent and mottonlesa, with the , loot clasped in hi arms. A the eoldicri advance, the officer said, 1 apparently in reply to a question No, let the men go. We cau't do anything with ! prisoners here; btt we'll look through jtne wagons, and II tie latin Lave any ; thing we want, why, all's fair in war. j j They reined their horses by the wagons j and after a few (hurt, sharp 'juenioiis, j ; proceeded to break cjen the trunk and j j bags, and appropriate their content. The soldier were about Csiahiog their j 'examination, when one of tUm aald.l whal'i that under the mat of that w agon? Oh! uolhing but a ttuu blanket, said auotlier. Tain't worth taking. We've gut all we want. There may It souk thing under it tho'. He pushed aidc the blunkct with bis sa bre, and there lay Tobe, endeavoring to hide the boots under him. Ah! said the soldier; this ia worth while. Here' just what I w anted. Come boy hand over those boots, (jiilck. Deed, Massa, said Toby, 1 can't gib 'em ter yer. Dey longs to Mass Cap'n; an he done told mo take keer b 'em luV partie'lar. Can't help that. I've got to have them; so pa them along. Please, Massa, began Tobe, but the rebel rut him short. Will you give me those boots? If you don't do it, and in double quick time too, I'll put a ball through your black skin. 1 won't ask you again. Now, will you give them up? And he pulled out hi i'lol. Deed, Massa, I cau't kaso Mas. V Ypn- There w as a sharp click, a Hash, a long sobbing moan ; and Tone ky motionless, the boots still clasped in his arms, and the great drops of blood slowly gathered tip on them. Eiieiny in sight, shouted a picket, rid ing up. Tho officer hastily gave au order, and the rebels dashed oil' at a furious speed a few moments before a party of cavalry, Willi Captain Ix;igh at their head, ap peared riding from the opposite direction. A few words sufficed for explanation. Captain Leigh laid his hand on Tobc's shoulder and spoko his iiumc. At the sound of the voice lio loved so well his eyes opened and he suid faintly, Muss Cap'n, I done the bes' I kuowed; I kep de boots. O, Tobe! groaned Iho captain, I wish you had given them up; 1 would have lost everything than had this. Mass Cap'n. Yes, Tobe, what is it? Do little chillens, Mass Cap'n, I moaned ter wait on 'em right smart, tell 'em his voice grew fainter and his eyes closed. Y'es, my boy, what shall I tell them? Tell 'em I didn't lose do boots; I kep 'em do bos' knowed. There was a faint sigh, a flutter of tho eyelids, and tho litllo life that had been so truly, do bes' ho knowed (ah, if wo could all say that!) was ended. Very reverently Captain Leigh lifted the boots, all wet and stained with blood. I will never wear these boots again, ho said, but I will never part with them. Thoy shall bo Tobc's monument. In tho ball of Captain Leigh's house is a deep niche, and in it ou a marblo slab, covered with a glass case stands a pair of cavalry boots, with dark stains upon them, and on tho the edge of Iho slab, in golden letters, is tho inscription : Iu Memory of Tobe, I'aithiul unto acatu. TUB ItOV JOIIV. S. C. Kendall says some very true and suggestive things about 'Tho Boy John' in tho April number of Scribncr's. We quote as follows. John is young. His tastes aro unform ed. His feelings are very far from being refined. In fact ho is a little gross in his sympathies. Ho wants amusement. Every bono in his body aches for recre ation, for play, fun, laughter. Ho docs not care ho has never been taught to care what tho fun is, if only It will give relief to the fidget that stings him. Not at all refined, ho will go for what ho wants where others go. And going whero others go, ho finds tho hunger of his na ture coarsely met just as the tainted meat will fill Hie hunger of a starving man in the low revelry, vile stories, tin. clean mirth of drinkiug-cellurs and sa loons. The boy docs not discriminate very closely, and to Iho longing of his crude appetite the entertainment of these places is infinitely bolter than any he ever could find in that place which he had been taught to speak of as home. For eating and sleeping and getting his clothes mended, ho feels that no place can be equal to a Christian home; but for good time, for passing a dull evening hour, for learning something new, lor words of cheer, for professions of sympathy, for thoso genial ways which a hoy docs love, and which any boy but Uriah Ileep must love, John will tell even tho minister to his face that home is nothing to a street corner, or a billiard-room with the attach ments of a beer-shop. Well, by and by, just before the clock strikes ten, the father wakes from his doze, tho epcclacles fulling and tho paper sliding upon the floor, and looking round with a bewildered gaze, asks, where is John? Where is he? Why, for want of better instruction, he is out practising our mod ern plan of training himself up in the way he likes to go, having no thought that when he is old lie will care to depart from it. But the father who has inquired for his boy rubs his eyes, looks out into the I darkness and listens; but he hears him ; not. He w ishes that his boy would not i go out so nights; but then he dins go j out. He wonder that John cannot sit I down at home like other boys. Whatj other boy? And Ihen, wiih a very feel-! ing remark that, It John does not do bet-1 ter and become steady, he will inako a ! miserable shirk of himself, the father j goes to bed. The mother waits till her boy comes. By and by, he doe come in his restlessness blown otf, the. uneasy , fidget of the early evening sjieiit in relax- j aUon w hich.of some kind, a boy mustj have and then at last the house is quiet, i bleep and rest prepare the houachold for ; another day and evening like these. And wtten that other evening tomes, out goo tire boy again; and the father ; again wonders and wihe that John ! would bJ steady and slay al home, and very feelingly predicts that, if he doe not change hia course, he will very likely come to a miserable end. I But, good father, why should your boy . sjiend hi evening" at home? What is ' orally th litimW-r h been mut h less, there al home lor him? What pleasant A contract hat l-en made lor tunnelling recreation, w hat happy plan for w Idling , Mmit.

Tho following six j in a New York pawnbroker's shop Is desciiVd by au eye witness: I had scarcely made my busi ness known at the first of my uncle's es tablishments No. street, to which 1 had been directed, when a middle aged man entered wilh a bundle, on which lie anked a small advance, and which on be ing opened, was found to contain a shawl ami two or three other articles of female apparel. The man wits stout and sturdy, and as I judged from appearance, a me clianie, but the mark of the destroyer was on his bloated countenance. Tho pawn broker was examining the offered pledge when a woman, with a palo face and at tenuated form, came hastily into the shop with the single exclamation, Oh, Robert! (lul led l ather than run to that part of the counter whero the man was standing. Her miserable husband, not satisfied with wasting his own earnings, and leaving her to starve with her children, had plun dered even her scanty wardrobe, and the pittance received was to bo squandered at tho rum shop. A blush of sliamo arose (ivcn upon his degraded face, but it quickly passed away; tho brutal appetite prevailed. Go home, was his harsh ex clumatioii; what brings you hero, running after me with your everlasting scolding? Go homo and mind your own business Oh, Robert, dear Robert, answered tho unhappy wife. Don't pawn my shawl Our children aro crying for bread, and I have nono to give them; or let mo have tho nionoy, Robert, and don't leave us t" perish! I watched the face of tho pawn broker. Twelve shillings oh thoso things he said tossing them back toward him with a look of perfect Indifference. Only twelvo shillings! murmured tho heart broken wifo, in a bono of despair; Oh, Robert, don't let them go for twelve shil lings. Let mo try somewhere else. .Non sense, answered the bruto, it la as much as they aro worth, I suppose. Here, Mr. , give us tho change Tho money was placed before him, and tho bundle con signed to a drawer. The poor creature reached forth her hands toward tho money but the movement was anticipated by her husband. There, Mary, giving her half a dollar, there, go home now, and don't make a fuss. I'm going a littlo way up tho street ; perhaps I'll bring you some thing from market, when I como homo The hopeless look of tho poor woman as sho meekly turned to the door, told plainly enough how much she trusted in tho promise. They went on their way sho to tho children, and ho to tho next corner grocery. A Wire' Cure far at lluil llalill. A newly married wile, living in New Orleans, recently discovered that her bct-ter-half was disposed to como homo fre quently lato at night, in a stale of oblivi ous forgetlulncss. Hho determined to cure him ot this habit. About two weeks ago ho returned at midnight, and stag gered Into tho bedchamber, tumbled into bed, and was soon asleep. Tho wife suid nothing, but when she thought ho was sound asleep sho procured a largo darn ing needle, and threading it with a strong piece of twine, sat quietly at work bow ing him up in the blanket. Hie sewed good and strong till as the gray streaks of dawn began to lighten the cast, ber task was done, lu this condition sho lelt him and repaired to the dwelling of a friendly neighbor, there to await the. result. About ten o'clock persons iu the neigh borhood were startled by the sound of the most distressing erics Issuing from the house, and rushing to Iho rescue, suppos ing that a murder was being committed, they forced the door, and there found the poor man bound up as tightly as a bale of cotton, in tho blankets of bis own bed. He begged them to release him, as he was dying from thirst and could not move. The neighbors stood aghast. They thought him the victim of some terrible plot; some burglar's scheme; but as they were in the act of extricating him, in rushed the wile and ordered ihcm to desist.

( In our (eat nres the fine chisel of thought and eniit tlon are externally at woik. Beauty Is not tho monopoly of blooming young men and of white and pink maidens. There is a slow grow ing beauty which only comes to perfection in old age, I ; race belongs to no period in life, and goodness Improves tho longer it exist. I have seen sweeter smile llmu from a lip of seventeen. There is tho beauty of youth and the beauty ofholincss-a beauty much more sel dom met, and more frequently found In tho arm-chair by the fire, Wilh grand-t hlld ren around its knee, then In tho ballroom or promenade.

Drox, a mechanic of Geneva, produced a clock which excelled all others in ingen uity. On it wore seated a negro, a sliep. herd and a dog. When tho clock struck, tho ehrphcrd played six tunes on his flute, ami tho dog approached and fawned upon him. This wonderful machine was exhibited to tho King of Spain, who was greatly delighted with it. Tho gentleness of my dog said Pro, is his least merit. If your majesty touch ono of tho apple which you see in tho sheperd's basket, you will admire tho animals fidelity. Thn King took au apple, and tho dog Hew at his hand, barking so loud that tho King' dog which was in tho room, began to bark also. At this tho courtiers, not doubting that it was an affair of witchcraft, hastily left tho room, crossing themselves ns they departed. Having desired tho minister of Marino (tho only ono who ventured lo remain) to ask tho negro what o'clock it was, tho Minister did so, but obtained no reply. Droz then observed that tho negro had not yet learned Spanish, upon which tho question was repeated In French, when tho black immediately answered him. Al this prodigy tho firmness of tho Minister also forsook him, and ho ro treated precipitately, declaring that it must be tho work of a supernatural being. Don't Mailt on lire ltallrnad Trnrli. It isn't a safe place to walk. It may savo distance, to mako a short cut down tho track ; it may savo life to go around. The great majority of casualties is due lo tho thoughtless, carelessness of the vic tims themselves, rather than want of rare by tho railroad men. Walking on tho track is one of tho most fruitful source of casualties. It is not Iho railroad work men who daily use tho track, who have been tho victims, but thoso who seldom travel that way. Look at Iho railroad statistics of Massa chusetts and Connecticut, for throe years, 'OS, 'f.y, ami '70. The whole number of persons killed iu those two states, for the three years mentioned by railway casu alties, was 4bi. Of these, 411 were pass engers, 1.12 wero employees, and -'71 were croiis not passengers or railroad employees. Of this 271, there wero it killed in getting ofl'or on moving trains 3 were caught between curs, ;i were slruck by bridges, buildings, etc., C fell from trains, l committed suicide, and two hundred mid thirty were on the track.
