And in a tine as low aud deeo As love's first whisper, breathed a prayer; V. un snow-white hands togetner pressed. Her bine eyes sheltered in the lid. The folded linen on her breast. Just swelling with the charm it hid. And from her long and flowing dress. Escaped a bare and snowy foot. Whose step upon the earth did press. Like a new snow-flake, white and mate; And then from slumbers soft and warm. Like a young spirit fresh from heaven, She bowed that light and matchless form. And humbly prayed to be forgiven. Oh God ! If Bonis unsustained as these. Need daily mercy from Thy Throne If she need upon her bended knees. Our holiest and purest one She with face so fair and bright.

How hardly If she win not Heaven, " in uui wiiu errors lorgiven z THE RAPPAHANNOCK CAMPAIGN AND THE BATTLE OP CROVE. TON. Before we set out in pursuit of Jack son's fugitive column, perhaps the read er would like to take a view of the battle-field as the recent struggle left it. Let us then go over it on the day of the truce, while the two armies are yet con fronting each other and the fatigue par ties of each are covering up the dead and gathering in the wounded. Pro ceeding along the road toward Cedar Mountain we pass, on the right, in the edge of a piece of timber, a little knoll whereon stood the rebel battery that dur ing the night withdrawal of Banks created such a fright among his camp followers and stragglers. Fearfully has the enemy been punished for his temeri ty in thrusting that battery so close upon the retreating column. Over that knoll the bodies of men and horses lie thick and are indescriminately mingled. A fatigue squad is at work digging, in the hard dry ground, a ditch in which the bodies of the rebel artillerymen will soon be laid and covered up together. Entering the woods which screen us from the intense heat of the sun we pass, on the left, a broken gun-carriage around which the ground is strewn with shreds of garments and tufts of wadding. On either side of the road the cannon . shot have been plunging through the woods and the trees freshly splintered, or with tops and branches lopped as if wrenched and twisted off by an infuriated Titan, bear witness to the violence and fury of the battle. Emerging from the woods we come to the open fields into which Banks' regiments advanced from the covert of the woods and where occurred some of the heaviest fighting. The ground is beaten with the tramp of many feet and strewn with the wreck of de molished fences and with muskets, clothing and accoutrements flung away by the soldiers when wounded or when overcome by the heat and excitement. borne of these fields were lately green with growing maize which is now cut down by the bullets and trampled down by tne swaying battalions. .Passing into one of these we come to the position oc cupied by some of the Ohio regiments at the crisis of the fight. ; All around lie the bodies of the dead, in some places a dozen or more within a few paces of each other. All night of the 9th and all day and night of the 10th they have lain here, just as they fell, and now pre sent a spectacle revolting beyond de scription. Reader, would you realize the dread solemnity and cruelty of war. look at it. in the roasting heat the bodies have swollen to twice or three times their natural size, the clothing is bursted open, the arms are outstretched as if in mute appeal, the faces are turned black as an Ethiopian's. Be not shock ed. These are brave Ohio boys who have died for their country and you now have one picture, and but one, of their suffering and sacrifice. Soon the pio neers you see them yonder covering up others will be here and give these, just where they lay, a soldier's burial. Ever since the fight occurred, over thirty-six hours ago, many of the wound ed have lain uncared for in the thick woods and some, unable to move, ex posed to the hot sun in the open fields. yVhole regiments are now detailed in small parties to hunt these up ana attend to their conveyance to the field hospitals. Here and there you can see these lit tle squads of four or five tenderly bear ing away a wounded comrade on a stretcher or a blanket. If you would listen to a tale of suffering, stoop down and hear from those pale and quivering lips how the wounded soldier, half fam ished for food and consumed with thirst, his wounds festering and his brain burn ing with fever and anxiety, kept solitary company with his own thoughts through those two long nights and that weari some day, doubting at length if human help would ever come to him. Listen and be convinced that the story of the war will never half be written and that what the correspondents tell and the historian will chronicle gives only the outside of the battle picture and conveys but a faint idea of the price of victory. The" multitude loves to dwell upon the pomp and circumstance of sieges and campaigns, upon strategic plans and tactical devices, but how little it knows of these whose business it is simply to stand shoulder to shoulder, load and fire, and that others may win glorious names, bear the heat and burden of the battle. It is not pleasant to dwell upon these scenes. Let us turn from , them to re sume the course of events. The withdrawal . of Jackson left our cavalry corps under isutord and Bayard free to occupy their former positions, and their line of outposts was again extend ed irom Raccoon f ord, on the Kapidan, westward to the base of the Blue Ridge. On the 14th General Reno arrived with eight thousand men from Burnside's Corps which, having embarked at Fort ress Monroe on the 1st, had reach Ac quia Creek and Falmouth on the 3d. This, the reader will mark, was the first accession Pope received from the Army of the Potomac. He now pushed his whole command southward to the line of the Rapidan, Sigel, with Milroy's Brig ade leading, pursuing the immediate line 01 Jackson s retreat as far as Robertson river. At the point where the Orange Court House road crosses that stream Sigel went into ' position, his command now constituting the right, as McDow ell's, holding both ' flanks of Cedar Mountain did the "center, Reno's, at Raccoon Ford, the left, and Banks , at Culpepper, the reserve of the Army of Virginia. A glance at the " map will show that the army in this position held an interior line, its flanks resting on the two sides of an acute- angle described by Robertson river on the right and the Rapidan on the left, the apex of the angle being at the confluence of those streams. Directly in front, at Gordonsville and Orange Court House, on the line of the Alexandria railroad, Lee was now as sembling his entire force let loose from Richmond. A cavalry expedition sent out on the 16th in the direction of Louisa Court House captured Stuart's Adjutant General, in whose possession was found an autograph letter from oeneral Lee, dated Gordonsville, August 1 5th, show ing it to be the purpose of the enemy to envelop and overwhelm Pope before the arrival of any part of McCiellan's forces. To gain all possible time for their arrival Oeneral Pope had taken his present ad vanced position, and for the same reason now proposed to hold it to the latest mo ment. No other consideration would have justified him in placing his com mand in a situation of such imminent vl peril. An overwhelming force had now appeared in his iront and for sixty miles his communications lay exposed to the grasp of the enemy. The steep banks of the Rapidan gave him a good line of natural defense, Dut a superior force might easily turn it and so doing place itsclt between him ana Washington That this was actually done, even at 2 much later stage of the campaign, shows how much more practicable it was now and how great, consequently, the im pending danger. On the 1 8th it became evident that al most the entite force of General Lee had assembled along the south side of the Rapidan from Raccoon Ford to Liberty Mills, and was about to make a bold push northward. General Pope now gave the order for withdrawal behind the Rappahannock, the line of which he was under orders to defend. 1 he im mense trains of wagons were put in mo tion first and preceded the troops, those ol Keno moving Dy wav 01 btevens- burg to Kelly's Ford f.nd those of Banks and McDowell passing the Rappahan nock at The point where it is crossed by the Orange and Alexandria Railroad. Sigel having occupied t!jc most westerly position was ordered to Tnove by way of Culpepper and Jetterson and cross the Kappahannock at White bulphur bprings. By these different routes the whole army now pursued its way to its new defensive position. At the beginning ot this retrograde movement, as during its continuance, it was found that the extensive wagon trains which the army had accumulated. were a great encumbrance. To keep these out of the way of the rapid and incessant movements of the different columns and at the same time preserve them from capture, required almost as much forecast and skill as it did to move the troops themselves. At best the nunv ber of vehicles required to carry ' the necessary ammunition, supplies and hospital stores of an army like this was very large, and our troops had not yet learned how to reduce their baggage to the lowest practicable limit. As long as the army was advancing it was a very easy matter to keep the trains out ot the way, but now that it was retrograding and threatened on all sides, the great question about transportation was, what to do with it f All night of the 17th the troops of Milroy, who covered Sigel's movement, waited for the trains to get well on the march. Time and again through the night they moved out of their bivouacs expecting to set forth upon their journey, and finding the road blocked went back again to await the movement of the sluggish and seemingly endless caravan. The sun was just rising as Milroy's command at length got fairly started from its camps at Robertson river. Along the line of march parties de tailed for the purpose carefully burned every broken wagon or other article that might indicate a hasty or forced retreat. Nothing was abandoned not destroyed, or that might indicate that the move ment was not made with the utmost de liberation. At noon Sigel's column reached the Cedar Mountain battle-field, and at dusk marched once more through the town of Culpepper. The movement continued far into the night and was resumed early the following morning. The weather continued fiercely hot, making the rapid movement of the troops doubly exhaus tive. On the evening of the 19th Sigel's Corps reached Warrenton Sulphur Springs and here crossed the Rappa hannock. Next morning it reversed its course, in accordance with instructions, and moved down the left bank of the river until it joine4 tbp right of McDow ell's Corps, which, in turn, connected with Oeneral Keno who the day betore had safely crossed at Kelly's Ford. The entire body of cavalry was sent to the right of bigel to watch the enemy s movements and picket the line of the Rappahannock, which is here but an in considerable stream and affords no se rious obstacle to the advance of an army. Early this same morning, (the 20th), the enemy, who had promptly pursued Pope s movement, attacked and drove in his pickets, but finding it impractica ble to force the passage of the river with out severe loss contented himself with heavy skirmishing and artillery dueling throughout the day. By night the bulk of his forces had been brought up from the Rapidan and confronted Pope's new position from his extreme lett at Kelly s Ford to a point beyond his extreme right, which rested about three miles above Rappahannock Station. It was now palpable that without large re-enforcements or a new change of position General Pope would be unable to prevent the enemy from turning his right by way ot bulphur bprings and marching thence to Warrenton, from which place a good turnpike leads to Washington. 1 he enemy seeing his ad vantage now commenced moving up the river with evident intent to avail himself of it.. General Pope being under orders to keep himself in close communication with Fredericksburg, to which point the Army of the Potomac was being brought from the peninsula and from whence it had been expected to come to his relief, found it impossible to extend his right any farther Without attenuating his line so that the enemy could at any point break through it. He therefore tele graphed to Washington repeatedly for aid and had received tne toiiowmg : Washington. August 18, 1862. General Pope: I fully approve your movement. I hope to posh a part of Buru side's forces to near Baruett's Ford by to morrow night to ai-si-t you in holding tht pass. Stand firm on the line of the Rappa hannock till I can help you.

In accordance with this plan Sigel, who was very ap- prenensive, as ne naa great reason to be that his flank would be turned, and de sired to withdraw toward the railroad, was directed to remain where he was, or, if any hostile force appeared on his right, to march against it at once and notify the Commanding General.

These have all passed away leaving no legal repsesen- tatives to relate their history. Many otners ot the African race may have been resident with early white settlers the. MOSES BYXBE, SR., tne lounaer 01 ueiaware, ot whom we have briefly written, was born at the middle of the last century. Consequent ly when he came to Delaware he was in the full vigor of mature manhood. He is described as well designed in charac ter and previous culture to act his part in pushing westward the progress of civ ilization. He was extremely liberal to his white neighbors. He lived in Berk shire four years. Much of the land there, now being appraised at probably twice that amount in dollars, he sold as low as 25 and 50 cents per acre. He built the first frame house in Delaware in 1808. This house stood exactly on the lot line between the present Byxbee mansion and the residence of E. R. Thompson. Esq. Mr. Byxbe laid out the town of Delaware the same year. Dolly Witter was the maiden name of his wife. She was a woman endowed in every respect to be a help-meet in a wilderness home. Allusion has already been made to her great influence with the Indians. 1 he hrst religious meetings were held n the house mentioned, and Mrs. Byx bee became a convert to Christianity. "In the dnrkliDg wood. Amidst, the cool and slleuce she knelt down And offered to the mightiest solemn thanks? And supplication," and to this fact, undoubtedly, may be attributed her ability to cope with the obstacles a pioneer mother must daily have been called to meet. She often said she would not exchange the enjoy ments of religion in the wilderness for the refinements of her former surround ings. Her house was the home of the pio neer preacher, and ample time was spent to put it in readiness to receive his pe riodical visits, at which time it served as pew and pulpit, and as a repose from weary travels. "Ah, why Should we, in the world's riperyears neglect God's ancient sanctuaries, and adore Only among the crowd?' Moses Byxbe, Jr., preceded his par ents in his western adventures. He came to Worthington in 1804 with Mr. Bristol. Col. Killbourne, one of the founders of that town, had just gone for his family to bring them to his western home. Moses was then in his nineteenth year. He is the only man now living in Dela ware who, at the incipiency of our coun ty, had reached the years of manhood, and has passed through every stage ot the history of the city of Delaware. He is now in extreme old age, being nearly ninety. We are happy to observe that he has, in a degree, recovered from the severe stroke of last winter, and meas urably retains his faculties. He served as a quartermaster in the war of 1812, and was stationed at Cin cinnati under Gen. Finlay.. By profes sion he is a lawyer. In 18 1 5 he returned to his native town of Lenox, Mass., and married Miss Elizabeth Eggleston, and after a bridal tour to YY ashington and Philadelphia returned to his western home. At that time he stood foremost among the wealthy citizens of Delaware. He brought from the east, what was then rarely seen here, a carriage. Mr. B. relates trequent adventures with the Indians and he frequently went to Sandusky to recover stolen property from them. 1 o him we are indebted for many valuable items. Among otner things a map of the first plat of Dela ware. Mrs. Byxbe, deceased, is remembered for her virtues, and noted with a kind of reverence for her devotion to the sick or suffering of whatever class. Moses Byxbe, Sr., died Sept. o, 1826, in the 70th year of his age. His house was the headquarters ot Oen. Harrison while his army encamped in. Delaware in 1812 or '13. The troops lay near the Spring, and for years their sinks or cess pools were discoverable in the adjacent woods. Moses Byxbe, Sr., was the first Judge of Delaware county, and Moses Byxbe, Jr., the first Clerk of the Court. In thus presenting a brief outline of one pioneer family, we hope the reader will not infer an intentional neglect of others yet to be noticed, or that we shall be able to give more than a succinct his tory of any, but simply add our mite to Ohio's history yet to be written. It is related that a wild hog, reared and owned by one of the settlers, and which roamed at will in the colony, gave end less trouble to the neighbors, and appar ently defied all restraint. On one occa sion her hogship entered the house of Mr. Byxbe, already described, at the front door, ascended a flight of stairs to the second .floor, where she leisurely commenced to gratify her porcine ten dencies upon a heap of corn. "Now," said Mr. B., "I have caught the mischief maker at last. So armed with a club he commenced an ascent in pursuit. Imagine his surprise, when, true to her instincts, the quadruped confronted him at the head of the -stairs, bounded over his head, taking off his hat, alighting at the bottom and departing the way she entered without injury. At another- time the owner of this swinish chattel discovered her in his garden. She entered from the' street, through the hall of his dwelling, the doors of which at either end chanced to be open. Fully determined to punish the scourge of the neighborhood for all its oast crimes and misdemeanors, he planned an attack. The garden being surrounded by a high fence, he barred or bolted all the doors of the house, then taking a pitchfork boldly made an assault. Bent on saving its bacon, the hog burst through the garden door into the hall. Making a bound at the stree. entrance, it did not succeed so well, as the door opened inward. Hotly pursued the swine turned to a side door, burst in to a room, sprang upon a bed and out into the street through, a window, break ing sash and glass, and escaping as usu al. This, however, ended her historic career, as she was now hunted with dogs, captured and killed. The scene of this occurrence was the corner now occu pied by the Mansur residence, and the house in which the event occurred, the one occupied by Mrs. Newell, since moved farther west on William Street. C. Mortimer Janes. THE EA8T RIVER BRIDGE. This great suspension bridge, of which we take the following account from the Rural New Yorker, is designed to effect closer communication between the two great cities of New York and Brooklyn. In conception it is grander than any thing of the kind previously dreamed of, and its successful accomplishment will prove one of the proudest engineering triumphs the world has ever witnessed. 1 he late John A. Koebling. who con structed the Niagara and Cincinnati sus pension bridges, originated the design, and its execution is entrusted to his son. The bridge is to be supported bv four cables, resting on two piers situated on the shores. These piers are to be 1 ,620 feet apart, and two hundred and eighty feet high, and the bridire-bed will rest one hundred and thirty feet above tide water, thus offering no impediment to navigation. The cables will consist of parallel steel wire, and will be nearly one toot in thickness. 1 hey will be anchored in solid masonry, 1,337 feet from the pier on the New York side, and eight hundred and thirty-seven feet from that on the Brooklyn side, lhus the real span will be 3,704 feet in length ; and the approaches beyond these points will be of arched masonry, thrown, like the halt-spans between anchorage and piers, over streets and houses, lhese ap proaches will commence at the City Hall Park, m New York, and at the junction of Fulton and Sands streets, in Brooklyn, and although rising but three and a-half feet to one hundred, will offer small obstruction to street travel. Naturally, the piers must be capable of withstanding ah immense strain. Their base at water-line is to be one hundred and thirty-four feet long by fifty six feet wide, and the heaviest masonry is to be employed in their con struction. Each will contain over qco.- 000 cubic feet of granite, and will weigh over 70,000 tons. In each pier there will be two arches, for entrances to the bridge, and each arch-way will be thirty- two feet wide, giving passage to a rail road track, a carriage-way and a side walk. The bridge will weigh 3,600 tons, and it is thought this will be increased by transitory weight of trains, carriages, horses, etc., to little less than 5,000 tons. To insure complete safety, therefore, the foundation of each pier will number 17,- 000 square feet of surface, upon which the pressure will be only about four tons per square foot. A proper foundation for these massive piers is of the greatest moment. Labor upon the Brooklyn side was begun in January last, and has since been contin ued, dredging machines being employed preparatory to sinking the colossal cais son which has been built at Greenpoint. This will be floated into position at high tide. The caisson, necessary because the Brooklyn shore presents no rock basis, is constructed of white pine tim bers a foot square, the searrs tarred to render them water-tight, and a sheath ing of tin between two of felt placed be tween the outside layers of timber to make the whole air-tight. It is one hun dred and sixty-eight feet long by one hundred and two feet wide on the out side, and fifteen feet high. The sides are wedge-shaped, the lower edge being eight inches, and the upper something over eight feet, in thickness, and the roof resting on these sides is five feet thick, leaving a working-chamber nine feet in height. All the timbers are bolt ed together with one and a-quarter inch bolts, varying from two to seven feet in length, and the structure is made as firm as possible in every way. Six shafts, lined with boiler iron, pass through the roof of the caisson, in which the water therein collected will rise to the height of the tide outside. Two oth er shafts will allow the passage of work men, and the removal of earth from within. Air-pumps will force air into the caisson through air-shafts, expelling the water, and enabling laborers to work upon the bottom. As fast as these ex cavate the earth they will deposit it around the shafts, through which a dredging machine will lift it and dump it into scows. When this mammoth affair shall be sunk to its desired position, thirty feet below low tide, additional courses of timber will be laid on top of it, to the height of fifteen feet, and filled in with concrete ; and when the whole has be come firmly fixed in place, the tower will be built on the solid foundation thus secured. On the New York side it is believed nothing of the kind will be necessary, the nature of the shore there being wholly different. That the bridge when completed will be well secured seems certain. Each of the four cables will enter the anchor walls to a distance of twenty feet, f.nd will there connect with the anchor-chains composed of ten links, each twelve feet or more in length, and forming a down ward curve of a quarter of a circle, in order to convert a portion of the tension into downward pressure. Then the cables will not be compelled to support the entire weight of the bridge. Stays, running from the top of each pier to the bottom of the span, will relieve much of the strain indeed, Mr. Roebling as serts that the bridge would not fall if the cables were removed, would only sag. Those who considered the first sus pension bridge ever built as a very pret ty but fragile thing, destined to a speedy demolition, will look with wonder upon this latest success of the engineer's skill when it shall link two cities together ; and admirers of mechanical genius everywhere may well exult over Ameri can boldness and energy as here exhib ited. In the light of such accomplish ments, we may well marvel over the probable grandeur of the future. WHO IS RESPONSIBLE I If the offspring of the drunkard is or phaned, the wife widowed, the peace of society disturbed, and the cost of admin istering our government and courts quad rupled, then are we to blame you and I are guilty. We are parties to the crime resulting from rum-selling the drunken ness, the arson, the poverty, the quarrel ing, the waste of time, the bloodshed the riot and confusion of rum-drinking all aie counts in the bill of indictment against ourselves. We stand together guilty. , We as a people are rum-sellers, because the law legalizes and protects the sale of rum as of cheese ; to adulter ate cheese would be a fraud ; liquor poisoned with man-killing drugs is sold under your laws safely. The vocation of the rum-seller is as safe at the hands of the American people as that of the teacher, and more reputable. A poor rum-seller is a myth. He owns and rents blocks in every town. He thrives beyond every other trader in the city. He plies his industry, and his coffers burst with fullness. The school in the shadow of his lofty structures is taught by one who has given years to prepare for a position compared with the tum seller menial and unrewarding. The gentlemanly and obliging servant of the people, who dispenses rum, has position. He is occasionally the direct means ot a man's being drunken ; but he apology the poor creature begged so hard he thought he would let him have just one drink, one. Quiet, orderly, peaceful, voter, will you kill men because they tease you to do so ? Yes, but you do. You allow rum-selling kills ; and you are ever responsible for it you are ever wielding the government power in Amer ica the citizen's ballot. Let the words, I am guilty of rum-selling and the crimes perpetrated under the influence of rum selling, ring in the ears of every voter. He is guilty he encourages and protects it unless he manfully rights it. NO. 3. MR. GARFIELD ON REVENUE RE FORM. Speaking as a politician to politicians, and looking at the question, for the time only from the standpoint of a partisan, General Garfield said to the Republicans in the House of Representatives, yester day: "If you draw a line by the west side of Ohio, by the north side of Arkansas, you will find nine States, every one of them Republican, some of th;m over whelmingly Republican ; yet, if I have correctly taken the census of the States in the House, out of the fifty-seven votes which these States cast on this floor. there are fifty-one who will probably vote for a reduction of the tariff in some shape ; and if they be not gratified by some substantial reduction, they are likely to go a good deal further toward our democratic friends than they might otnerwise. We advise the Republicans to take notice of this warning, from one of their own members, who, as his speech showed, is very tar indeed from being a free-trader. Af York Post. CONNECTICUT. The Republicans of Conneticut have been ruthlessly slaughtered by the pot terers in Congress over the work of Re construction. Day by day have the pro- crastinators and flawpickers in either House been warned that, unless they de sisted from their evil work and enabled the President to proclaim the XVth Amendment the law of the land, Gov. Jewell and his associates ou the Repub lican State ticket would fall victims to their malign fatuity. But all warnings were unheeded all remonstrances wasted on reckless ears. The result is exactly what was apprehended. Gov. Jewell's majority would have been as large as English's is, could the Amend ment have been proclaimed ten days earlier, so that the colored citizens could have voted at this election. Such are the first-fruits of obstruction of the Butler stripe in the North and time will prove that policy equally baleful in the bouth. The result of the election is the choice of English for Governor by 70'? majority, with a Republican Senate by one major ity, and a Republican House by ten ma jority. JVeiv York Tribune. . From the New York Tribune. The manifestations of feeling among our high army officers on the death of Oen. 1 nomas recall the pleasing circum stance often spoken about in the last years of the war-of the absence of every thing like personal jealousy between the great military leaders "of the Union arm ies. We never had occasion to hear of envy, rivalry, or intrigue between Grant, Sherman, Sheridan, or Thomas. We never heard of one trying to depreciate the successes of another ; nor of one at tempting to get another's place. They all co-operated with each other at differ ent periods of the war ; and there were undoubtedly occasions in which men less high-minded and devoted would have found opportunity for such self assertion as might have broken up the harmony on which our success largely depended. But, fortunately for our arms we had no displays of this kind. These eminent soldiers seemed incapable of the baser arts by which so many men minister to their own ambition. They sustained each other at all times, and were proud of each other's deeds and each other s promotion. 1 he country has occasion to remember this circum stance. Had things been different had we had such bickerings and jealousies as are common among the leaders ol oth er armies in time of war had we not got rid of the envy and ill-will which prevailed among the officers of the Army of the Potomac at the time of the Pope campaign we should never have closed the war with such results as were accom plished in 1865. ANNA DICKINSON. Speaking of Miss Dickinson's new lecture, "To the Rescue," the New York Tribune thus sketches her early career as a public speaker: Ten years ago, if we remember right ly, Miss Anna Dickinson made her first speech in New York. It was in that dismal cavern now well-nigh forgotten, which bore the name of the Great Hall of the Cooper Institute. This cave, glaring by night and gloomy by day, was then at its gloomiest, for it was not quite half-filled by that pestilent body of agitators, yclept the National Anti Slavery Society, which corporeate Cas sandra came annually to utter its call to do justice and love mercy, and to threat with the judgment to come. To the two hundred righteous that morning as sembled, the President of the meeting announced that they would be addressed by Anna Dickinson, of Philadelphia. She rose, tossed off her hat and shawl, and came forward, a slip of a girl, in brown stuff, shy, plain, rustic. It was a child who stood there, with a child's fear less eyes, a child's confident bearing, a child's impatience of detail, a child's inconclusive and unconsidered argu ment. She had grave defects of elocu tion, of action, of method. Her ideas were neither original nor great. Yet, in the wonderful responsive voice, in the changing luminous face, in the dramatic temperament, in the large humanity that swayed her, in the passionate love of right and scorn of wrong, there was promise of the orator to be. . Not long after, when the war days were upon us, the girl was heard of in Connecticut, in one of those election campaigns, when the loss of a State to the Union cause was like the loss of an army. She rode day and night, in all sorts of weather, and in all sorts of con veyances. She spoke in halls, in meeting-houses, in barns, out-of-doors any where where a handful of voters was gathered. She reasoned, she pleaded, she scoffed, she entreated, she threaten ed. Where a man would not have been heard, ste was courteously treated. This stripling, with her smooth stones from the brook, slew her giant. The State was saved. Her reputation was made. Henceforth engagements poured in upon her ; and to-day, John B. Gough ex cepted, no lecturer in the field is so so licited. The Tribute concludes : It is quite within Miss Dickinson's power to be the most admirable orator in America, as well as the most popular. When we have the pleasure of summing up performance for the next ten years, trust that her possibility will have come her achievement. her we be- Junius Henri Browne relates t he fol lwinw I remember in mc prison a soldier wno u . 1 . 1 1 . 1,.. reputation fa skulker and deserter. llis com- int.in.rms lost all respect for him because they thought him a coward. Like so many thousands of poor fellows there, lack of shelter and nourishment soon brought him to the door of death. I visited him frequently in one of those dens of wretchedneess nominally called hospitals; and when, one day, he asked me if I thought he would live. I tried to comfort him with a hope I could not feel. 'Oh ! don't mince matters," he said ; "I know from the way you look that I'm gone up. You needn't think I'm afraid to hand in my checks, if I don't like fightin.' Fightin, you see, is' one thing, and dyin' 's another. I didn't like to get hit and hurt in battle; for I always was afraid of pain. But here, you know, there's no chance of gettin'out. A fellow is bound to stand it anyhow.
