Alas t for blm wboaa ahnple aoal, A gardea cheriahed by the inn, Lira open to tie public way, For every loot to tread upon. And whether in a wanton mood. Or by a aelfith puipoee led, Eacb paaaer trample on tbe verge Where all bia tendereet feeling! apread. And then bit wounded nature feeli What his alone can underataoo The flower that's broken by the beel Can ne'er be mended by tbe band. From gentle Inatinct tanght to love Tbe meanest creatnre of hU race, He took hie Image or the World Wben Ood waa ahlnlng in bia lace ; Nor dreamed that earth could wear a Croat, Save, aa It fell, while glory biased, The noonday Bhadowa of Chriat, With anna In Benediction rnlaed. And not till bleeding from tbe world, lie learn the heart leea world It is ; That rude aoula tbe gentler cruah, . And 1 are rude to inch aa his. " ' Though turning to bis fellow -men, Wilb bops In -each a friend to meet, Tie etanria aa lonely as a tree Upon a city's stony street; For, ever to open band, Tb e per feet trust, the guileless air. Not even Charity ia kind, And Manhood doubta a SI an ia there Then, shriuking, stricken to himself. With ailent grieving deeou to, Be lives a coward to the wind. And fears the things be cannot bate. There ia sinking of bis soul, Ai udden shock of age and care ; As one who in a mirror sees The Brat gray streaking of bia hair. And glowing tremulons with dread. Of what one word, one look may be, lie dares not eeel to make a friend, Lest love should die of jealousy. Thus, frlendleas and alone ha goes, To none a prise, to all a prey; Like water dripping on a rock, By trifles wears bis life away. And yet there la aa inward light To keep bis soul from growing dark, Though which bia nature's incenae breaks. Like mnaic breaking from tbe lark; For, though the world aweepe coldly by, Or pauaea but to raat a dart, Tkere'e something cannot chill nor die Hi grand simplicity of heart ! TIIECOqUETTE'S REITARD. BT AST RANDOLPII. The delicate fragrance of hot-house flow ers fljated through tb half-lighted parlors like remioiaenoet uf tbe eweet sooth brea thing npnn a bank of violets, although tbe matter-of-fact almanac stolidity persisted io pointing rut December s the month. and the thermometer without ettod nncom furlnbly near zero. But ths uiarlle vates od either side of the firr-place were filled with n ses and hilia r p fresb from the tropic warmth of cooservatorie', and a single danlinje japonica gleamed like carved peail, among tbe jetty fulls of Ella Wardlaw'a hair, as abe stood smiling be side ber harp, listening to the regretful edienx of him whom the world called her lover. "Good-bye, Ella; I ehall coma again very sorn." Miis Wardlaw'a warm heart throbbed high. Cbarles Forrest had never before ca'led her by the name of "Ella," and she felt niumphaiitly coracious that ber proud beauty, and the seductive notes of her silver-stringed harp, had very nearly brought Dim to the "propping point." One or two more such vigcrous sieges, and tbe fortress would be her own. She sank, yawning, on a aofa, as the out er door closed upon her 1 iver, and clasped ber white hands carelessly over her bead. the full crimson lips apart, sod the veined lids drooping over eyee that were full of smothered fire the vry impersonation of a most lovely syren whose vocation it was to conquer hearts by tbe score, and carry them about with her aa trophies of ber co quette lures 1 "Mrs. Cbarles Forrest," she repeated to herself, "that doesn't sound so very badly, dors it? particularly as tbe aforesaid Mis. Charles Forrest will step into a brown stone palace, a obocolate-colored carriage, and' a perfect carcanet of family diamonds 1 Yes, I believe he is safely entrapped, and if I play my cards aa well aa I can do. th mat ter will be settled within three days I Ileigho! this husband bunting is a weari some business, after all ; and rather haz ardous.un less one i very f-killful. That reminds me,' abe added, starting suddenly op, and throwing off ber soft languor as one might lay aside a useless garment, "I must write to Ralph Thornby to-nigbt; if the love-stricken wretch ehould fulfil bia hinted intention of coming to see me, it migbt possibly be awkward. My poor, dear Ralph," continued tbe beauty, with curling lip, as aha openod ber dainty writ tag-deck, and selected a small sheet of rose colored paper, redoent of some faint Pari sian perfume, "what a preiix chevalier he wad I really liked the handsome boy, but Charles Forrest ia rinb, and that most de cide matters; for.such an extravagant little body aa I am, can't live without money I am sorry ,thougb,I wrote Ralph that very sentimental letter, but that waa Wben I auppoeed be was tbe beat investment I could make of my precious aelf. But I'll sprinkle cold water on tbe flame of bis love, before the affair becomee any more serious. I wonder." pursued Ella, biting tne end 01 her pen thoughtfully, "whether I've got to leave off flirting wben I'm mar ried to Charlea I do really like this driv ing three or fonr lovera in band, I must confess; it'a splendid fun 1 Twelve o'clock! can it be possible that it ia aolate? I most make haste and finish this tiresome letter, and then to bad to dream of diamonds and carriages." It waa nearly one, however, and the fire bad earned very low, before Ella bad fin ished tbe carefully worded note, and sealed it witn a device ottai ry like entangled ini tials in ping wax. ior Ua was esquiait ly fastidioua and elaborate in ber doings, even aown to ner Dirtationa. Abe bfautilol velvet cheeked eoquette. witn ner aroopmg eyenas, and voice attnn ed to tbe sweetest and softest key one wonld not have thought, as she placed that letter on tbe marble mantel, that abe knew its contents were meant to break the heart ef a noble and true eouled man i Bat, pa' tienoe, Ella Wardlaw your day of retri bution will arrive jetl When Cbarlea Forrest descended the broad atone steps of the Wardlaw mansion, and then walked down the lamp-lighted atreet, he felt dizzy and happy, like tbe voyager who steers bis bark away from tbe soft, bewildering fragrance of lotus-blos aomed U)es in the far East The syren's spell waa on him and yet some warning aadwatohful pulse, down deep in bis heart, kept beating the old incomprehensi ble tone, "Beware, beware I" Onward be passed, through the noisy tu mult of Broadway, that vast artery through whiob gosbee tbe fevered tide of everlast ing humanity, until be paused where tbe brilliant light from a great hotel "offioe threw a, glare of radianea out to th very middle of tb street. A crowd - waa bow assembled there tbe midnight mails bad jost arrived j and Forrest mingled with the. J throng, to glance over the evening papers and bear the fleeting rumors of battles which then vexed the public mind. tor rest I old tellov.1 can it be possible that tbis is yon?" Myseir, and no other, Thornbv, for I conclude it is either you or your ghost But 1 thought yoo were safely settled in Chicago, practising law, instead of " - "Jus tend of running wild a boot the coun try, yon were going to eay. But I have granted myself a temporary holiday to Pshaw, I can't tell you about it here; come op to my room, and we'll have a cosy chat." Tbe delightful little impromptu supper of well seasoned dainties, washed down by ebampagne, was over, and the two gentle men were smoking Sunday spicy-cigars, in front of a bright fire, when Thornby ab rubtly plunged into the subject wbioh was uppermost in his mind. "Charley, I'm hi live !" "Yoo are? My dear fellow, aoam I." "I am glad of that, because von can sym pathize with me. I have 'come here ex pressly to see her, and to have the day fix ed for our wedding." "I bavn't got so far as that," Forrest said smiling. "Bat. Charley, she is the loveliest crea ture that tbe sun ever ehane on an angel a divinity " "Hold on Ralph not gwVe tbe loveliest, I trust ; for tbe lady whom I wortbip is alone entitled to that superlative degree of praise." "You're in love, too, my dear boy, so I'll excuse any little symptoms of insanity." re joined Thornby. laughingly; :'but really, if joa couiu see juia bold on, X believe I ve got ber picture somewhere about me." fie searched eagerly io bis pociet while bia friend repeated tbe soft name over. "Ella? Why, that is tbe Dame of tbe young lady whom lStdroire so much ; and by Jove," be added, as Thornby unclasped a velvet miniature case.and held it towards bim, "that is the very face! You don't mean to say you are engaged to that girl ?" "To be eure I am what do you mean? Surely there is some mistake I can show you ber last letter." He drew out the srlf-same "very senti mental letter" to which Mise Wardlaw had referred In her onutfered soliloquy. For rest glanced over it with bewildered eyes and then biting his lip ontil tbe blood star ted, took from his pocket a prettily worded note from Ella, which he bad received that morning. "The handwriting is precisely similar, Ralph. We are both tbe dupes of an art ful, unprincipled woman. This some Ellen Wardlaw, while she is corresponding with you in this impassioned strain, is doing her bent to lure me on to a proposal 1" "It cat not be." gasped Ralph, feeling as if he were in a dream. "But I know it to be so ! Heavens! what a narrow escape I have bad ? And you alo, Thornby, nhould rejoice at your escape from the wiles of a false hearted co . ' S ill Riilph Thornby repeated, between his olenohed teeth : "I will not bel:eve it Ella is troth it self." Shall we put it to the test ?" asked For rest, rather indignantly. "Do what yeu please. I will stake my life oo her single mindedness I" Forrest took out a pencil and dashed off a hurried proprsal in form. "There, I will eend this to-morrow mor ning, with request for an immediate an swer. Wben that answer eomes, will you believe its testimony?" Tbornby nodded; but tbe hand which lay upon Charles Forrest's was ccld and damp sV marble. "Good night, then, mv nonr fellow. "said Forrest, as he rose to take leave. "I am sorry for you from the very bottom of my heart, for yon feel tbis more de -ply than I do!" But Thornby did not answer he was gazing absently into the fire. Could it be possible that his worshipped idol was slip ping, slowly but purely from her high pedestal ? Then what remained on earth to trust.' Head and heart both ached sadly that night, but tbe weariness of travel was nothing to the sick sensation of distrust and apprehension that bad taken posses sion of hie mind. Therefore, it happened that he was still lounging over bis almost untasted breakfast wbeo Charles Forrest wa" annnunend by a waiter. 'Well,' was bia greeting. Forrest re replied : I have dispatched my missive and here is the answer. See, the seal is yet unbro ken we will peruse it together." It was a skilfully written note of glad acceptance. Ella wrote that "she bad long loved Mr. Forrest that her greatest hap piness through life would be to secure hie contentment" with variety of charming little addenda, such as yesterday, would have filled Cbarles Forrest's beart with rapture. N,, they were falae.idle rhap sodies ! "Are yon convinced ?" was Forrest's simple question, as the letter dropped from hie companion's trembling hand. "I am " It has been a pleaiant dream ; but I am eflectually roused at last. Char ley, I have been a fool a dupe ! "And so have I -Ralph; just give me that enthusiastic love letter you ebowed me last night?" "What for?" Cbarles made no reply ; but be took the letter from Thornby'e unresisting hand.and folding it with tbe note of acceptance be bad just received, wrote one pencil line on tbe margin, "The compliments of Messrs. Thornby and Forreet," and enclosed both in one envelope, directed to Miss Ward law. These," be said quietly. "When she received tbis, eh will aee that ber careful ly arranged plana are disconcerted." And thenceforward the name of Ella Wardlaw was never mentioned between the two friends. Tbornby returned a sadder and a wiser man to Chicago, and Forrest aailed for Furope by tbe next eteamer, hav ing very sensibly resolved not even to risk a chance meeting with Ella, whose subtle art be dreaded exceedingly. Ellt Wardlaw was practicing difficult Italian sonata on Iter harp as tbe eventfol note was banded ber. Sue tore it hurried ly open, and gated with wide-open, bewild ered eyes upon tbe enclosures. Tbe next moment they felt from her nerveless fingera she had fainted, for tbe first and the last time io her life! Years have passed since then. Ralph Tbornby is married to a lovely young Chi cago heireaa ; Charles Forrest has bloom ing wife, and two rosy little girls; but E la Wardlaw is hopeless old maid, with not tbe faintest chance of a husband. She says she never intended to marry.' A lazy fellow, who bad loog been an im portunate bat successful applicant for a government office where there waa plenty of pay sod no work, at length fell into des pondency. - "Can yon tell me," be said to Qailp, " ear for the blaee ?"

PAPA GOES THERE. 'Mayn't I go with yon, papa ? rieafV say i may go, won't you T These words were uttered in a plaintive and sadly entreating tone, the hands of the speaker clasping the knees of the listnerV It was a boy of seven years who lisped them; a beantiful boy, with a fair, high brow, around which there clustered a wreath of auburn corls; with dark flashing eyes; cheeks rosy with betlth; lips like the cherries of summer, and a voice like tbe birds which taste them. There were tears in those eyes at this time tbongb, and the dimple mouth was quivering. It was a man of some five and thirty who had listened to this plea; a man who had been of noble looks and princely bearing. Aye, bad been, for tbe blighting trtuh waf written over form and face. Ilia locks were matted, bis forehead scowling, hia eyes red, but not with tears; there were furrows on bia cheek, ton; and a brutish expression on bia lipa. Twice did tbe boy address bim ere be aoswersd. Then push ing tbe child rudely from him he eaid in a stern voice, 'No, no, it'e no place for you.' Again those fair email hands encircled tbe knees. You go, papa. Why can't I too? Do let me go.' " For a moment tbe heart of the inebriate seemed to wake frcm its sleep. He shud dered as the thought of the character of the place bis pure souled boy would enter. He took tbe child tendtrly in his arms and kissed him as of old; then potting bim down be said kindly: 'Yon must not ask me again to take you there. It is no place for little boys,' and seizing bis hat hurried from the room, murmuring to himself as be paced the way to the brilliant barroom, 'and no place for men either. Would to God I bad never gone.' For a long time Willie stood where his father left him; then turning to the few embers that faintly glowed upon the hearth he sat down io his little chair, and resting bis head npon bis mother's lap be said earnestly : Mamma, why isn't that pretty store a good place for little boys ? Pa La loves to be there.' It was a trying question for the poor, heart broken woman. She bad so far kept from hereon the knowledge of his father's sin. She could not bear that he should look with ehame upon him, or that his pure gentle heart should thus commune with so intense a grief. Kindly she toyed with his long ringlets, and then said endearing. lv: Papa knowa better than yon what is best for his little boy. When you get older you will learn why be does uot wish to take you.' Mind the cradle, Willie, I'll come back soon, and then you shall have some sup per, and a nice fire to sit by, too,' and tak ing a large basket of ironed clothes she went cut. A wealthy mother would have been frightened at tbe thought of leaving so young a buy at night fall ul me with an infant to care for, ood an open fire to pit beside. But poor Mrs. M knew well enough that she could trust Willie with hie sister, and aa for burning up, there was not enough coal to thaw his blue stiff fingers. No she did not fear to go and leave bim, for he bad thus been lef'. many trmes. and be had always obeyed her. And he meant to now; but poor little fel low ! his thoughts would wander to that brilliant corner store, whither he knew his fattier weot at evening; and bis brain was buy wi:h eager wanderings. He knew his father always went nt evening; and lie knew there mu-jt be something lie liked, for he never came home again till after Willie was osleep. What luy behind those scarlet curtains was a mystery he sought to coravel. At length be whispered eageily, as if to encourage a longing wish, 'Papa used to tel! me u I wanted to know anything very bad, to persevere, and I would find it out. Now I want to knw what makes him love to go tbore so. I know there must be pretty things behind these windows. I shouldn't wander and bis checks were glowing if it was like a fairy bouse; why cunt't I go f Pjor Willie! The temptation to know was too strong to he resisted; eo he buated up a candle, lor l.e was a thoughtful little fellow, and would not leave bia little sister to the only danger that could menace her, the flame might eeare away the rats and mice, ehould tbey sally out ere bis return. 'I won't stay long, pretty dear,' eaid he pressing a tender kiss n hervleeping lips, and drawing the blanket close over ber fair arms. 'No, I'll ccme back soon, but I do want to take one peep. Swiftly his little feet bore bim over the pavements, and a trice be etood before the ourtained door. 'How light it is, and how tbey laugh and talk. It must all be very funny io there.' A cold, November blast swept around the corner as he spoke, penetrating his flesh and causing his teeth to chatter. I don't believe they'd burt me, if I should go in awhile ; I'm such a little boy and am eo cold here,' he said, as be push ed the door catefully from, slipping in and closing it without a breath of noise For a moment he was bewildered with the light and clatter, and half wished be was away. But the warm air was grateful to hie limbs, and finding that no one eeemed to notice him, he stole towards tbe glowing grate and spread out bis rurple hands be fore the blaze. Tbe group of men that encircled the bar were drinking wben be entered. Soon, however, tbey sat down their glasses, and dispersed about tbe room. Hello,' said one, in a loud tone, as going to tbe fire he spied little Willie. 'What are you doing here, my little fellow, who are you, and what do you want?' 'I don't want anything, only to see what yoo do bere. My name is Willie M , My papa loves to come here, and it looked so pleaeant through tbe window I thought I'd like to. But I must not etay long,' for I've left the baby alone.' 'And where is your mother, boy ?' 'Ob, she's gone to take borne tbe wash, sir. Papa don't have so much work as be used to oooe, and we're very poor now, and she bas to help bim.' . And does it look as pleasant in ber as you thought it would, my child ?' . Ob. yes, it does, . sir. I don't wonder papa loves to come bere so much, it's so dark and cold at home. But I should think he'd bring mama and me and little sis. How she would laugh to see this fire and all these pretty bottles; and those flow ers with lights in them. 'Please air,' and he earnestly seized the rough bands of the listener, 'please eir, tell me why little boys can't come bere with their fathers !' . For God's sake do not tell bim. Ban erroft,' eaid a dtep disguited voice. 'He deems me pore and holy. Heavens! what a wretch I am I My boy, my boy 1 yon have saved me from earth's vilest hell. Herewith my band upon tby e in less brow, I promise never again to touch the cup I have drunk eo deep. And my brothers in sin.as yoo value your soul's sal valion, tempt me not to break my vow. Help me Heaven help me, men, ao as to live hereafter, that papa may never blush to take his boy along that if papa goes there, Willie may go to.' Silently tb door olosed after' tbem, and ailence dwelt in th saloon behind tbem. The preacher b4 been there in c,h;rub form, and crazy, and loose, unholy ttnuehr. or light and ribald jest was bushed. One by one, they stole away and many a wife wore smiles that night; nor did the old bar tender even curse tbe little one that robbed bim of so many dimes. Too deeply in his heart sank the voice of tbat cherub preacher. Don't yon like me papa 1 Are yoo cross at me t asked little Willie in a hesitating tone, at they stood for a few moments on tbe pavement; for the scene in tbe bar room waa an enigma to the child, and be had feared a reproof, "I waa thinking what mamma wonld like best for supper,' eaid the father. -Was you 1 was you ? was the eager question in a gladsome voice. Oh, get oysters and crackers and tea, papa; and a candle because there is only a piece. And please papa, tell mama not to be cross to me, 'cans you know if I badn't gone as I did, yon wouldn't perhaps come yet, and she does love to have you home eo moch. Oh,! I fee! just like crying, I am so glad. r-4ndl eel like crying, frn, said his father solemnly ; and ere midnight be did cryand bia wife, too, but tbey were holy teats, washing bis beart of the dirt that bad gathered on its beauty; and hers of the sorrow that bad wrapped it as a pall. Scene at Vlcksburg at Sight.. A correspondent of the Cleveland Herald describes the scene at Vicksbnrg by moon light' while making the round uf our siege works, so well that the reader will riiikd no apology for giving it so moch space: Come with me out npon tbe lines to night, reader ; probably you never witnes sed the details of a siegs, and perhars what yon may see win oe worm the trouble. I am on duty to-night on the trenrhes, aod will d i the chaperon for yoo in connection with other dut-ee. As we ride along from hea-lquarters to she nearest works, a brief explanation will be necessary to show where you are. These troope you see all about in the ravines belong to the 13th army corps of Gen. McClernand. This the left of the federal line. Tbat bridge through whose arches the moon is shining i beautifully is on the Jackson and Ticks burg Raiiroad, which runs directly east ward. So we are midway between the Micsippi river below the city and the Yazoo above. Away a mile to the right, where you saw the cannon flash just now, is tbe 17th corps, under Gen. McPherson. Three miles beyond, at Haines' Bluff, where our line meets the river, ia Sherman's corps, the 15it ' That the situation on onr part. Now, looking away to the !eft,!etyour eye sweep clear round to the right, notice how level and well defined be horizon seems to be ; observe bow sharply cut the line of that ridge appears in relief sgainst the bright moonlite sky. Nature never shaved tbe crest of a ridge so evenly, you guess, and you are right. Two years of incessant la bor have been experienced on that crest, every resource of military art has been ex haufted; with what success, many of us have been dearly taught. We hare nosr reoched the first battery, four 30-pounder parrots, manned by a company of the l6t regulars. Dismount, and let ns take a nearer look. These guns were mounted and these works built on the n'ght of the Zlmi ot May, two days before the assault. It was a little audacious, bringing siege guns to the front in that way, but tbey were brought and planted, and all the reh- els c iuld do has never silenced tueni for a u.wuienr. oreat (tuna, tbeae long elender parrots. How taper and graceful, compar ed with the unwieldy lumbering old 24 pcuoder of Gen. Scott aid Vera Cruz mem tr. Tbe slide on tbe hausse, you observe, is set at one degree. That means tbat it is six hundred yards to the nearest salient of the enemy's works at which tbis gun was fi iegjuet before sunset. Glancing along tbe sides, and you will see where we metn. The rebels hare got an,8-inch rifle ia there which is troublesome sometimes, but our aharp-ehootere and batteries keep it quiet most of the time. But it is not the cannon alone which we have to fear, even tt this bng range. By daylight the bul lets sing about here most uncomfortably. A man was killed where you i.re standing this afternoon. 'The dark stain npnn that plank is ibe only record left, and be, poor fellow, already buried ard forgotten. But lei us go forward. Mounting our horses, we cross tbe raiiroad on a bridge and fol low tbe road three hundred yards. On tbe crest of a ridge we find a garden and tbe ruinaof a house recently burned. Here a parapet is thrown up serosa the road, and two guia look through embrasures toward icknburg. we are now on the line of the second or main parallel which, runs along tbe entire front of the 13th corps, about three Honored yards from tbe hostile line. Io many placea it ia nearer, not more than two hundred yards, wben the ground ia favorable. Along the en'.ire trench, you can pass, from left to right, under complete protection. The trench. you see, ia filled with men asleep on their arms, except a tew on duty, who pee slow ly to and fro. watching ebarrlvover toward the enemy'a Hoe. This is a precaution which we adopt for the benefit of our friends in town who, growing tired of city life, many take a notion to break out and retire to Jackson, or some other place to rusticate. They have been very partial to Vicks burg life hitherto, and we intend that they , shall have enough of it. Tbat knoll on onr loft is a good point for observation We will leave onr horses now, the rest of the trip muet be made on font. Tbe rebel sharpshooters are jealous r( horsemen hereabouts, aven at night, and they shoot splendidly io tbis clear moonlight. . These two guns in this work on the knoll are parrott'e, also, a eection of Foster's fa mous battery, those terrible "twenties" which hkve bad such a voice in tbe noise of this rebellion. Look at tbe black muzzle of tbis one. How bright and smooth the grooves are worn. A year ago it waa frowning at East Tennessee from tbe sum mit of the Cumberland Mountains, but it has traveled many thousand miles since then, and mingled ite thunder with tbe din of many a well-fought battle. There are dark stains npon its carriage, a "spoke is gone from oo of its wheels, bteina have been spattered over it, for brave men have fallen beside it, but their places have been filled, and its roar ia all the fiercer for tbe scare upon it. But we are loitering. Let ns climb the parapet aod aee the eeiga by moonlight. In front of us, beyond tbe enemy'a works, but bidden from us, lies the city of Vicke borg. Loo, carefully and ynu can distin guish the spires of tbe eourt house and two or three churches. The rebels bad a sig JJal atation on tbe former when we came, but our shells made it too warm for them and tbey withdrew. The mortara are play lnr; to night, and they are well worth aee tog. We watch a moment, and in tbe di rection of Young'a Point, beyond tbe city, suddenly op shoots a a flash of light, and in a moment the ponderous shell, with its faeeglowiog and epaik ling, rises eljwly from behind the blufta ; op, op it goes, as as though mounting to the zenith; over it ;mes towards us, down through its fright ful trajectory into tb city, and xplods, with a shook tbat jars th ground for miles. There are frail women and tender children where those shell fell, bot war i war. Sherman' eight-inob monsters are eraenblins far away on th right. Near er, McPherton'a too are playing w ean even tee the ca.nnooier besidetk-em at eaeb flash. Ours will open at midnight ; then will be music to your heart's content. Meanwhile, let ua go to tbe : front. A bnudred yards ta tbe right of where w now are, we enter a deep trench. Follow ing this as it wiods down around tbe hill, we reach the opening of a cave or mine. The air within is damp and close like that of vault. Candles are burning dimly at intervals, and we hear a bora of volcee far within and out of eight. We proceed and presently meet two men carrying a barrow of earth, for our boya are at work night and day. This is tbe main approach on tbis part of tbe line. Finally we reach the moonlight egain, and emerge into a wide, deep trencb, cut across tbe I in of the cov ered way. Tbis is open aod filled with troopa who protect tbe working party. A heavy parapet of cotton bales and earth is built on tb sid tow rd th enemy, and we must m uot the beam to look over. We are now within sociable distance of the chivalry. Those men lying on tbe ground, twenty or thirty yards from oa.are onr advaweed pickets; bot that gray fellow, with tho bright musket, which glistens eo, few steps beyond, is a 'reb,' long-haired and hot blooded, one of Wall's famous Tex as Legirc a boll-dog to fight, you may be sure. Let's hail bim. Close your 'ears polite,' my friend, aodaommon your moral dignity, for these Texana are rough spoken Tellows. Hello, Secesh !' What'n h 1 do you want?'

Go to b 1 1' Can't eee it I How about subsistence in town?' The style of our friend now becomes en tirely too strong, and ve jump down and enter the mouth of the other mine, which leada toward tb salient of tbe enemy'a work. Stumbling along, we reach tbe end where the men are digging. The candle burns very dimly theair is almost stifling. Nevermind, let us watch them. See that alendcr. bright 1 mking fellow awing that pick. Great beaded drops of perspiration trickle down his face, there is not a dry thread in bis coarse grey shirt, bot no mat ter tbe pick ewings and eacb stroke slices down six inches of the tough subsoil of Mississippi.

Rear Admiral Akoiw Hcll rooTx.diedntthe Astor House, in tbe city of New lork. on Friday evening last, lie waa tbe eon of Hon. Samael A. Foote, formerly Gnyernor of Connecticut and Senator in Congress. Ar the age of six teen young Foote entered tbe Navy acting as Midbipman, and made hia fust cruise in the steamer Grampus, which formed part of tbe equadron sent in 1823 to chas tise the pirates in the West Indian Arch epelago. In 1824 he obtained hia war rant as midshipman, and in 1830 waa commissioned a a lieutenant. In 1833 he was flag lieutenant of th Mediterran ean tquadron, and 183S he circumnavi gated the globe with Commodore Reed, as 1st lieutenant of the altop of war, Jhn Adams, participating in aa attack on the piratee ot Sumatra, and rendering assur ance to tbe American missionaries in Honolulu, who had been persecuted by the French naval commander on that sta tion. Whilst stationed at the nayal asyl um in 184l-5, he prevailed upon many'of the inmates to give up their spirit ration, being one of the first to introduce the principles of total altMnence from intoxi cating drinks in the' navy ; and during a cruise in the Cumberland in 1843-'5, he net only induced the crew V forego the use of spirits, but personally superintend ed their religious instruction, delivering an extemporaneous sermon, at which up ward of 200 sailors attended. In 1819 in command of the brig Perry, he jirinod the squadrm under Commodore Gregory, on the African coast, where during tbe next two and a h ilf years he was actively en gaged in suppressing the slave fade. In connection with tbis crui.ie he published in 1852, a work entitled, "Africa and American Flag.' After serving on the naval retiring board, be was appointed in 185C to tbe command of tbe si. op, Ports mouth, and ordered to proceed to the Chi na etat'on. Arriving at C nton just pre vious to the commencement of hostilities between the English and Chinese be ex erted himself in. protecting tbe property of American citizens ; and having been fired upon from the Canton barrier fur is while in the discharge of his duty, he re ceived pefmiion Iron Lis commanding ufficer, Commodore Annairjn?, to demand an apology for tbe indignity. This being refused, be attacked ibe forts, four in nrm- bes, witb the Portsmouth, supported by j tbe Levant, breached the largest and strongest, and landed with a force of sailors and marines,' carrie-l the work; by storm. -The remaining forts weie sui cesefu'.ly carried, with a total loss of forty to the attacking party. Tbe works were massive, granite atructnres, with walla 7 feet thick, mounting 176 guns' and 5.000 men, of whom 400 w ere killed aod woun ded. This expl.it, performed in tbe presence of the British and French fleit in the Canton River gre ttly enhanced the reputation of the American navy abr.ad. At tbe commencement of tbe civil war in 1861, Commodore Foote was executive offi cer of the Brooklyn navy yard. Iu July, 1801 he was c mmisaioned as a eaptato, and in the following September was ap pointed to eucceed Commander Rjdgera as flag officer of the flotilla fining cut in tbe Western waters to act against the eo emy. He peraooally superintended tbe completion of ibis work during the next few months, and on Feb. 4, lfcC2. sailed from Cairo with a fleet cf seven gunboats, of which four were iron clad, to attack Fort Henry oo the Tennessee. Without waiting for tbe land forces under General Grant, which was to-operate with bim. be opened fire at nocn of the C h, and after'a warm action of two boors compelled to surrender. Returning to Cairo, be sailed soon after for the Cumberland River, and on the I4tb attacked Fort Donnelson , Tbe action was sustained witb great vig or on both sides for an hour and a half whec tbe fleet was oblixel to haul off. just aa tbe enemy's water batteries bad been silenced, in consequence of two of the gonboats becoming unmanageable by having their s'eering apt aratuu shot off. Flag Officer Foote waa severely wounded in tbe ankle by a fragment of a G4 pound shot, and, bis ship, tbe St. Louis, waa struck CI times. Though suffering from bis wound, which compelled bim to move about on crutches, he proceeded down the Mississippi with his fleet, strengthened by tbe ac-ession of a number of mortar boats, and commenced the siege of Is'and No. 10. After the reduction of tbat place h. applied to tbe Government for a leave tf absence, aod early in May turned ever his command to Capt. C. II. Davis, aod left for bia borne in New Haven. Upon being restored to health, he waa appoint ed chief of tbe bureau uf eqnipmeot and recruiting under the new organization of the navy.' which office he continued to hold until a few weeks since, he was ap pointed to the command of tbe Atlantic squadron. While on bis way to assanie bis new position, he waa taken ill at New York, which has resulted in bis death. K.ar Admiral Foote's personal appear ance belied bia well- known aeputttioo for coolness and courage. Ills form was bow ed and bis carriage was Dot possessed uf tbat ereetnesa and elasticity, tbe told, mania), haughty mien obtaining witb men who have trod tbe quarter-deck through so many years of an eventful life. His f ce was always calm and serene his mild bine eye as innicent in its expressions as a child's. Jle waa cardial io bra intercourse with all intimate with bis officers, fumil iar with bia lowest subordinates, bot alwaye commanding their respect, ' and securing a love which almost a moon ted to idolatry. In inaction, bis features were singularly placid, dreamy and poetic ; in battle, lit up by the flames cf war, and elo quent witb tbe terrible inspiration of the hour. He could be as gentle as a dove and as terrible aa a Hol. He always counted tbe cost before an engagement, bat when tb battle signal flew at the foie, beside the the Commodore's broad pennant, eyery man knew jt meant victory or death. He hesit ttd at Frt Henry; Int when the signal waa raised, h aailed into the terri ble tempest of shot and abell aa royally ae a ki.ig, clear op in the ver slope of tb doomed fo.t, the meantime pacing the deck as calmly aa if b we.e ia the drawing room. - . . j His affections ere very strong, and especially clustered about his home. Upon the very eve of Itaving Cairo to attack Col am bas, a telegram reached bim of th death of bia favorite eon io Connect'cut. He did not allow it to interfere witb his duties. , With a pale face all will remem berrwho saw it that beautiful spring morning and with streaming ees, he isaucd bia ordera ; and though bowed down beneath the crushing weight of grief, tbo' racked with pain from bis wounded ankle aod suffering with fever, scorning all tb advice of physicians, he eat . off upon th expedition. Few will aver know tbo fear ful burden of mental and physical suffer ing tbe gallant man eodored without a wcrd of complaint. ' ; I A striking element cf his charaotar was th religious.

Sabbath morning by the rpectrr officer of the boats comprising bis fleet. Tbe writer well remembers a most beautiful and todebing incident in this connection, which we believe has never before been published. The long weary siege of Island No. 10 was oyer. The fleet touched a New Madrid to convoy Gen. Pope' army to Fort rillotf. We left New Madrid Satur day morning, and arrived at a bend in the river about fifteen miles above Fort Pillow at sunset. It wr the Commodore's inten tion io remain at tbis point over the Sab bath, but tbe next tw-rning aboat S o'clock columns of black amok Sr'sing above tbe timber, signalled danger.- A tug sent to reconnoitre retimed, and reported four ktunbnnts approaching 0a.

He bad brain fever; end after ken u?erin be fell asleep peacefully at one o'clock on the morning of the 5th of December, 1791. On tbe fiU of December, at 3 o'clock in the afternoon hia body waa carried to tbe Metropolitan church in Vienna, where the customary prayers were eaid over In a side chaeel. When the little funeral left the eboreh. it was raining and snowing fiercely, and tb storm continued with each violence, that on arriving at the gates ot tbe city, the few fiiecds wbo had followed poor Motart'a remaioa ia far, resolved to return, thus tbe body went to the grave unattended by a single relative or friend: No lux i or lov ing ono stood on the -grave as the cof&d waa lowered into tbe- gronn.
