If you know, I pray you toll me,
Will my father come again ?

was anticipated. Tbegresfestda.nago seems

Tallahassee ?jtidinel says:
It is es'imated that the crops in this imme
diate vicinity were damaged 20 per cent., and
the amount of property on the co.i-'t is put
down at a low estimate nt not less than
S5O0.?O0. Of course this is somewhat con
jectural. It ia ascertained that between twa -

The soldiers of Gen. Bragg'.; army areT

Hughes. The facts are tbesc :
A few days ago an old gentleman who i
sides either in Jackson or Putnam emir
drove a little wagon into Wartrace, load
with a large box of pies. After he had st
out his eut-re stock, he chanced to meet
soldier of bis acquaintance-the aforesn
John Smith. John very gravely inform
bim that he was very desirous to go hoi
and take another look at the scenes of 1
childhood. H? now saw an opportunity
gratifying hi- Iring'pent up wishes. The sn
box was sidiicieiitly capacious to hold JJ
corporoxHn, and lie asked the privilege
becoming its inmate until he could bo drav
iieyujd Hie pickeJs. The pie merchantthoug
it would be decidedly naughty for him
haul our, of Wari race, in this ?.trance at
unique manner, so precious a load of ku mai
ty j -but finding that John had lixed his who
heart on the scheme, and no argument cou
change the direction of his thoughts and d
sires, be told bim to bundle np hi* cloth
and be ready for shipment at a moment
warnii'g. Wlhereupon the old frentlcma
alias thc pie merchant,*called on John's Col
Hid and unfolded the round, unvarnished fae
already given. Col. Hughes' ridiculous bupi
was manifestly touched, and he at once said
"Box him np and carry him as far as til
river. There you will find me fud some i
my mon ready to charge you with bavin
contraband goods in your buX, and tb doman
a search." lt was not. Jong before thc pi
.merchant made his appearance on Tie na
designated with bis wagon and box, au
when he had reached the middle of the rivi
he was ordered to halt ! " What have you i
your box?*' was the inquiry made. *'i'ies,
replied thc old man. "i do not believe il

boVS throw your box ?LMO the Stream." " 0
with it," cried he. Two of bis moldier
.promptly obe\ed this order. They not on-;
lumbled the box into tho river, which wu
about three feet deep, but they jumped cpu
it. Poor John now found himself in a I> K
box and how to get tail was the q ?eslion- ?
a sort of instinct he kicked oil' a sido plank
and out protruded one leg. Then: WM not ?
