"Another great Union victory!" said Frank, exultingly, as ho enme into tho sitting-room one vmfnig, after his return from the village post-ofSee, and took a vacant chair among the group gathered about the Ceutcr-tablti. ' "Glorious 1" cried a chortis.of voices. "A aplended achievmncnt. Let nie xcad you th imrticulars,". Frank continued, with iinimntion, drowiuf a copy of tho Paper from hi pocket, and leading off with a briliinntly headed article, wherein the ad vante;,'f gained in one) of tliobe "most gal lant and during exploits of the wnr," of which tic have bad o many, were duly set forth. It was a fine, spirited sketch of the lmttlo of Chattanooga, and we listened with breath less attention, following the rapid move ments of our gallant troops as they advanc ed to storm tho enemy's strong entrench ments, hearing the imagination tho fierce rattle of musketry far up the slopes of Mount Lookout iu General Hooker's famous "bnttlo above tho clouds," our work fulling from our hands, over hearts standing still as we watched the brave men charging madly up tbe dangerous heights of Mission Riclgc, their cheers mingling with the roar of rebel guns, the shrieking of rebel shells, and the sharp death-click from, tho rebel pits a wild, stirring, turbuleut scene ; but the key note of the whole was '"victory! victory!" and every face shone with triumph, every voice cried jubilantly, "Well done!" when tho recital was ended. All but one. Cousin Mabel, her fingers busily employed in the fashioning of some hospital garment, had listened with paling face to the thrilling uccount. her head droop ing lower and lower, until ut last it rested on her hands, which, still holding their un finished work, had fallen nervelessly upon the table beside her. Frank, looking up from his paper with bla.ing eyes, eagerly searching the faces of his listeners for token of sympathy and ap preciation, quickly uoticed her attitude and silence, nud u-isching forth his hund laid it lightly upon her bowed head, saying gay ly "What! not a single word of praise or thanksgiving fur tliii glorious success of our.trnops, dear Mabel I" tihe lifted hor awcut, earnest face, wet with tears, looking like a pure white lily, dashed with summer rain. "As I love the Union cause and hope for its ultimate triumph, 1 do rejoice in this signal auccesss of our arms," she said fervent ''. "IJut your attitude just now was one of deep dejection, I thought, and there are tetrs upon jour cheek, Mabel." "They come of mingled pity and thank fulness, I think," she answered, wiping them away, and resuming her work. "Of pity J" Frank asked vaguely, as if he scarcely understood her meaning. "What sorrow, anguish, and suffering thrills in that oue word victory. How many wretched, aching hearts, that have contributed their earthly all to this triumph cry t ut to-night against the nation's ex ultation and rejoicing 1" she said tretuuloua- 'Ah ! true. Ood help them ! But no permanent good was ever nttuined, you know, without some present los-s aud mo mentary suffering. Let the afflicted gather courage and strength from this thought, and guess at the inliiiity of their entcrnal blessings by the multiplicity of their tem poral ills." "It is easy to say such words very easy for us who sit here untouched by loss and unscathed by the murderous tirp whose burn ing breath swept hundreds of miles from Chattanooga, aud vhoc blasting influence it felt in many a Northern home. Truly, if we could keep our eyes fixed always on eterual issues, sorrow could uot touch us more than it docs the . immortals. But we have hearty of fieth, that fail with fear and smart with anguish a we walk the fiery furnace, nnd the siililiinest reason ing cannot in ok us quite forgtt our pains." "If ou make such onimctits on a victory gained at a comparatively stnull cost, what shall be -taid for the defeats which have unreasonably occurred to our armies from time to time sines the beginning of this contest ?" "The true soul recognizes no defeat to our cause founded in justice and right. Im mediate results may not always be such as are anticipated and desired, but ultimate victory must reward the courageous cham pion of truth "Still," returned Frank, "there is some thing wonderfully depressing to tho spirits wbeu to use your words 'immediate re sults' prove not 'such as are anticipated and desired.' The good soldier, who iu the hour of peril strains every nerve iu his faithlul performance of duty, feels somehow wrong ed and defiaudcd of bis rights if the day h not won. I confess to a thrill of pain, and regret even now, when I think thut my good right arm was lost in that unhappy action before Fredericksburg thut its lust service did not perceptibly benefit the causo I o dearly loved. 1 Iwiicve we all fell the same, we maimed and wretched fellows who were gathered out of that awful wreck of humau life. We lay in heavy swaths, where the guns of the rebels bad cut us down iu the earlier part of the action, hearing all around us the mad eou fusion of buttle, but unablu to tell who were the winners in the combat, as friend and foe rushod over us, oue and another prxtrte sufferer lilted Ids dying bead, and called faintly 'Comrades, how goes the da V and sank away into eternity, uwer knowing which way tho tide of battle turned.

"It is glorious to ride upon the storm of battle, to throw yourself tear lessly into the heart of danger to plunge recklessly into tho thickest of tho fray, shouting defiance in tho very teeth of death to meet the shock of tho adversary with n thrill of pleasure and exultation to feel in yourself the might of a conquering host to see the opposing columns steadily giving wny before your resolute and determined strokes tn bear along tho Union lines tho shout of 'victory !' sounding high above the unenrthty din, as the beaten and discomfited rebels swarm out of their fastnesws and seek safety in flight, the breath of the pur suer hot upon their cheeks conqueror und conquered rushing madly on over the man gled bodies of tho slain for no one ever pauses to think of the dead and dying in the frenzied excitement of the battle-hour. Do you remember," he added, after a pause, in which none of his soft-hearted listeners responded to his llattle raptures.

Head them Helen." "We gathered ronnd the tent-fire in the evening cold and gray, And thought of those who rank'd with us in battle 'r rich array, Our comrades of the morn who came no more from that fell fray !

"Ah," Frank said with a sigh, "that is after the fire of euthusinsm burns out, and dispossessed of the spirit of vengeance we stand bleak aud desolate enough against the hard, cruel realities of war, tecling to the , core the vanity of earthly great uess, the k this aidn of tbe Kupidan. The belief was littleness of human glory. Many a sad after- I general that Lee would not venture an of battle scene your fancy has painted, no j tensive movement. A report prevailed to doubt, but noue, I thiuk, whoso sombre co- i day at the front that Lee was removing bis loring could quite equal tlic actual, lo the full I have realized the suffering that comes of this bloody strife, as, laying back tie dead body of some beloved comrade whoso last moments it had been my office to soothe, I have turned to the sorrowful task of break ing the intelligence of his death and of trans- ! muting his farewell messages to tne waiting friends at home, conscious of the terrible blow I was dealing, yet knowing not how to console them, saving simply to call to their remembrance the gooduess of God and the righteousness of the cause in which their dear one perished." "liut our enemies have neither the justice of their cause to urge in consolation of their afflicted," observed dear mother, laying down her ni'ttino nnj removal!! her snecta- cles to wipe awuy the mist of tears that hud j garnered un their pousueu sunuee. "Ah, no !" responded Mabel "wretched, misguided ones God pity them I" "God curso them the traitors'." cried Frunk, hotly, his face darkeniug with pas siou. "God curse them they murdered Harry Hartly my Harry and yours." "Oh, Fruiik !" murmured Lily aud Helen faintly. Mulel's cheeks were white as the muslin in which her bright, shilling needle had sud tleuly paused at mention of that name. I do not think it had been spokeu in her pre sence for two years before that night. She was one who could uever bear to hear her dead name. Frank, hot-headed but true hearted Frank, though loving his cousin dearly, hud forgotten uer extreme sensitive ties in his momentary excitement. Away back in the first autumn of thu wnr Mabel tasted the bitterness of a cup which has t-iuco been pressed to more lips than you or I can number. We had rumors but no de tailed account of the battle of Ball's Bluff, when a dispatch from Frank announced Harry as one of the victims of that horrible massacre (one can hardly call it by a milder uumc). Mabel was laughing and jcsling gay Icy when the message was placed in her hands. She opened it with n smile upou her lins. no susuicinn of the truth seeming to enter her mind. I shall never forget the. awful look that settled on her face as sho read nnd re-read tho fatal words. Startled by her rigid, deathly appearance, we sprang forwards, crying "Mabel, what is it, dear I What ails you, MaW Care 1" "She threw her hand up to her forehead, and struggled to her feet. "Wake me," she said, iu a strange, sscrcd volte. "For the love of God, wake me from this horrible dream," aud fell senseless in our arms. Mother picked up the paper which flut tered from her clasp, and so we learned the truth. Dear Mabel ! I do not '.ove to give my I en to the memory of such days a followed. Jut our tUrliug girl was of too strong ana buoyant a uutuiv to siuk without rv.istauce uud'er this heavy al'liction, aud after n little she, with persevering etlort, put awav all outward signs of mouruliig, and resumed her accustomed duties, chuerl'ul aud jcreno, though with mm. of ber oh' lightness and gavety ol inanuer. , - , , - "IM tu t bo troubled for we, dear friends," she bad aald, auawering our ausbnt looks ith n sad smile ; "I am only ou of n thou sand, burvly, can tudurv suffuriu as well a ut hut.

"Harry," she said, struggling for compo sure, "Harry never would have wished you to cry God's curse upon his enemies." "I "knew it," Frank replied. "Harry was n Christian, and would have said w ith his Master, 'Father, forcgive them, for they know not what they t.lo.' But I never can recall the aggravating circumstances of his death stricken down as he was without an opportunity for aclf-dcfence and not feel a thirst for vengeance upon his assnsins firing my soul." "Remember to whom vengeance belongs. It seems so me thnt we should bring no feel ing of personal hate and isncor into this strife." "How can we do otherwise ?" Frank ask ed.

The latest intelligence from the front to day left everything quiet there. A heavy reconnoissance into the valley developed the fact that no considerable body of rebels are heavy artillery to liiclimoml. The reported advance of the enemy to ward Warrentou was caused by the tailing back of Gen. Gregg's Division to Three Mile station for military purpose. There is no foundation for the current rumor that Longstreet's force is iu Thoroughfare Gap. Fitzhugh Lee's division was reviewed to day by Gen. Stuart at Hampton's Crossing, just below Fredericksburg. Wickhum's, Lo mar's and W. II. F. Lee's brigades were iu line. Deserters are ngain coming into our lines. At one point the average number during a week past has been eight per day, princi pally from the Forty-second and Fiftieth Virginia regiments. A number ot army correspondents, avai ling themselves of the liiatvt in military affairs to recuperate in Washington, were much disgusted yesterday ut finding an or der had been issued barring their return to the Army of tho Potomac. Sarah Reynolds, n middle-aged wrruai, arrived at Brandy Station on the 22d, ha ving walked from Fredericksburg, which place she left on Monday 18th. She says that the city contains but few inhabitants, and that there are no troops in that neigh liorhood. She came by the wav of Gre Church und did not encounter any rebel pickets. She says that the remaining resi dents 0f the city and Falmouth look for the return of our army to thnt neighborhood at an early day as an end devoutly to bt wished for as a means by which to avoid starvation. In order to relieve the Treasury from as much unnecessary expenditure as possible, the time ol service for the hundred thou sand men offered by the Governor of North west was changed from six mouths to oue hundred day. To-day Senator Wilson re ported a bill from the military committee appropriating twenty-five millions of dollars to pay them. The bill requires that they must be mustered iu by regimeuts before any pay cau be allowed. The matter is before the Finanee'Committee, and will be probably reported to the Senate to morrow- A special dispatch to the Ilemld, dated Harper's Ferry, Af ril 2.5, says a very splen did engagement took place between a de tachment of the First New York cavalry and a body of rebels at Newtown, near Stras burg. We lot one officer and quite a number of men. The reU-l force is reported to have been between three hundred aud four hundred strong. tUeaeral Mtesel Mill Hold lae 1'wrlicallaae riMysaoatla.

The Port Royal JVeie South publishes tho following letter, dated Morris Island, April io: "On the lath instant tho Reliels fired few shells from Fort Sumter. The 13th was the anniversary day on which the Rebels captured tho fort, by bombarding it from unnmingv rotnt ana several otner places iSot one of their shells did a particle ot damage. Our men immediately opened from Fort Gregg, and in n very short space of time the enemy was completely silenced. "The fact that the enemy has guns in Fort Sumter is not doubted, but wc are confi dent ho will-never be able to mako any practicable use of them. "The 30 pounder Parrott gun which did 1 . - 1 ... : i.i , if , 9I1UU auiuiiuuie eaeeuiion in sueuiDg vuaies- ton, and which exploded on the forty-six hundred and fifteenth round, has been repla ced by a gun equally as affective. Shells are now tossed into the city at points the Rebels supposed we would not be able to reach. The inhabitants who supposed them selves comparatively safe in the middle of the city, have been compelled to take an other journey towurds the northern limits. "For the past few days the tides have been unprecedentedly high, so that the banks along the beach have been leveled for a dis tance of several yards inland. At Fort Wngner, near the sally-port, two torpedoes were washed out of the sand by the water. One of the toipedoes contained powder in a dry state; the powder in the other was moist and unexplosivc. "Several bodies have also been exhumed by the tide near tho lort. In one place seventeen, and in another eight, bodies were exposed to view. They were rcinterred further inland. "Deserters and contrabands come in every little while from Chaaleston and viciuity. The intelligence they bring confirms that which we already know concerning the force and positiou of the enemy's troops. Ef.achkuako is traveling continually be tween Charleston and Savannah, and mani fests considerable uneasiuess at our supposed intention to strike a blow in the neighbor hood of one or the other place. "There is nothing new to report of the licet." Keep your Eve on tour Neioiibors. Tuko care of them. Do not let them stir without watching. They may do something wrong, if you do. To be sure you never knew them to do anything very bad, but it may be on your account they have not. Perhaps if it had not been for your kind care, they might have disgraced themselves und families a long time ago. Therefore do not relax any effort to keep them where they ought to be; never mind your owu business, that will take care of itself. There is a man passing along he is looking over the fence be suspicious of him ; perhaps he contemplates stealing something, some of these dark nights; there is no knowing what queer fancies he may Rave got into his head. If you find any symptoms of any one passing out of the path of duty, tell every one else you cun see, nnd be particular to see a great many. It is a good way to cir culate such thiugs though it mny not bene fit yourself or any oue else particularly. Do keep something going silence is a dreadful thing, though it.is said there was silence in Heaven for the space of half an hour, do not let any such thing occur on earth ; it would be too much like Heaven for the in habitants of this mundane sphere. If biter i all your watchful cure, you see nothing out j of the way tn any one, you may be sure it is not oeenusu uiuy usiu not uuuu uiiyiiiiug bud ; perhaps, in an unguarded moment, you have lost sight of them throw out hints thut they are no better than they should be that you should not wonder if people found out .what they were after a while, then they may not carry their heads so high. Keep it. a going, and some one will take the hint nnd begin to help you after a while then there will be music, aud evervthing will work to a charm. I Personal. Mrs. Doulglas, widow of the i late Stephen A. Douglas has written a Ict j ter to a friend in New York, iu which she denies, in the most explicit and emphatic i manner, the reports which have been going I thu rounds of the newspapers thnt she is em ' ployed as a clerk in oue of the departments ; at Washington. She complains, naturally enough, of the annoyance w hich circulation I of this unfounded statement occasions her. It probubly had its origin in the mistake of ! some correspondent not so familiar with her i personal appearance as he supposed himself to oe, ana uas ucen inouguiieasiy cupicu uy ' others. i j AGRICULTURAL j The Const Grub. The corn crop has I several enemies to contend with, and among I them is the grub, which sometime laterally j destroys whole fields, or damage the crop seriously. One ot tue I est ana most conve nient remedio perhaps tho very best ever suggeited is the application of salt as soon as the plant make ii appearuuee above ground, prepared and uea iu tiiis way ; Take one part common salt aud three parts plaster or gypsum, and apply alout a ta (leapoonfuli arouud each bill. It will be fouud to I a sure protection, The mixture should not come iu contact with the young plants, as it may destroy them. This meth od has been tried over and over agaiu by some of the beat farmer of Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey, and when prop erly applied, has never failed to be perlectly suceeaaful. W hope our farmer who have rs'ason to fear th dopredation of lit grub, th present season, will try this ml lure, leaviug a few alternate row of corn without th .alt, and communicate lo us th ro suit.

Whitewash contribute? so much to cleanliness and health, and to neatness and cheerful appearance, that its free use, at least once n year, is deemed in dispensable. All unpapered inside wails. and all outside walls and fences, should have an application, and this is tho proper season. Let it be thus prcpured: Put half a bushel of fresh lime (the lumps are best) into a tight barrel. Pour over it boiling hot water till it covers to the depth of six inches, and stir it briskly till slacked. When sufficiently, slucked dissolve in wuter two pounds of sulphate of iuc, and one of common salt, nnd add it to the wash. They will cause it to harden, and prevent the un seemly appearance caused by crackiug. Thren puunds of yellow ochre added will give it a cream color, and lamp-black will give it a pearl or lead color. For fawn color, add four pounds of amber, one pound of Indian red, and one pound of lamp black. For common stone color, add four pounds of amber and two of lamp black. Apply with n common whitewash brush. Creme Au Caramel. 4 tablespoons of flour, 4 tablespoons of sugar, 4 yolks of eggs, 1 quart of milk.
