AFTER THE BATTLE.
BT VIBOI.NIA T. TOWJ.SEND.
It was over at last. The sun which had
walked slow and calm through that terrible
day, had gone down io a column of fire
beyond the western hills, and now the stars
were coming out swiftly, like petals scat
tered over an azure soil.
Aud the stars looked down on the battle
field, as they bad come out and looked down
for scores of years on a fair yoqng land
which had risen in her strength and beauty
until amid all the nations were none to
compare with her on the great cities that
were hung like jewels on her green bosom
on ttie broad harvest field that waved
their tresses for joy through her golden
summers on the houes where the dwel
lers thereof 8at peaceful and happy under
their own vine and fig tree on all this had
the stars which came up night by night to
watch towers of the ky, uutil at last there
came a change, and now where the harvest
had waed their locks in the summer wiuds.
was that mot terrible sight which tbe sun
and stars ever buheld-r-the sight of a battle
field The conflict had raged hot and terri
ble that dy.
The hearts of the dismal mountains had
shuddered with the thunders of cannon,
and the earth drank in blood as in autumti
bc drioka in the equinqctial rains ; but at
last the day's awful work was done, and
the night winds lifted the gray banners of
smoke from the battle-fitld.
The air was full of the heat and smell of
powder; the dead lay thick together, with
-tark, ghastly faces, on the trampled grass;
the wounded lay thioker, filing tbe air with
moans riderless horses running terrified
over the field ; and the dying light of the
solemn 5tars watching over all. A little
way from the battle field was a small stream,
making a blue fold in the dark grass, and
two men have crawled to its batiks to
quench their thirst.
And when the two men looked up and
met each other's faces, thoy knew they
were enemien, and they knew, too, that a
few hours ago each had aimed his rifle at
the other, and that aim had caused a ghastly
wound a little way from the heart, which
had drank the life-blood of each, and each
had elared desperately op bis adversarv a
moment before he fell.
But there was no fierceness in the eyes
of those men now, as they sat face to face
on the bank of tbe stream ; the strife and
the anger are all gone now. and they sit
still and looked at each other. At last one
of them spoke :
" We haven't either of us a chance to
hold not much longer, I judge?"
" No," said the other, " You did that
last job of yours well, as that bears witness,"
and he pointed to a wound, from which the
life blood waft slowly oozing.
" Not better than you did yours," an
swered the other, with a grim smile, as be
pomtPd to a wound larger and more ragged.
And then the two men gazed each again
in tbe dim light, for the moon bad some
overrthe hills now, and stood among the
stars aa a pearl of great price. As they
looked, a softer feeling 'stole over tbe hearts
of each toward his fallen foe ; a feeling of
pny tor ine strong, maniy pre lata low, a
feeling of regret for that inexorable neces
sity of war vibich made each map tbe slayer
of the other; and at last one spoke :
" There's some folks in the world who
feel worse, 'tpose, because you have gone
out of it?" .
yes," 6aid the man, in thick tones.
" There's a woman with a little boy and
girl, away up among the New Hampshire
Mountains, that it'll well nigh kill to hear
of this," and the man groaned out ip bitter
anguish, " O, God, have mercy on my wife
and children !"
And the other rew closer to bits.
" And away down in the cotton-fields in
Georgia, there's a woman and a little girl
whose hearts will break at what this day
baa dnae," and then the cry wrong jtself
opt of bis heart, " 0, God, have pity on
And from that lime on" the Northerner
and Southerner ceased to be foes' The
thoughts of thtte distant komw on which
thwwtiwats4iwasvfia'80op tar fall; drewthem
cloee together io tbeirTisf hoaiywool'R
two nit-n wept like children. And at last
the Northerner spoke, more to himself thaa
to anything else, and he did not know the
other was listening greedily to every word.
" ' She used to come my little girl bless
her heart ! every night to meet me when J
came hnipQ.from the fields; aud she would
stand under the grpat plum tree, that1 just
beyond the back door at home, with the
sunlight making a yellow crown on her
goldt-n curls, and the laugh dancing in her
eyes when she hea'rd the click of the gate.
1 see her now, and I'd take her in mv arms
and she'd stick up her little red lips for a
kis ; but my little girl will never wntch
uuder the old plum tree by the well for her
father again. I shall never hear the cry of
joy as she catches a glimpse of me at tha
gate I shall never" see her little feet run
ning over the grass to spring into my aim
-" And," said the Southerner, " there's a
little brown-eyed, brown-haired girl, that
used to watch in cool afternoons for her
father when he rode in from a isit to the
plantation I can see her little face shining
out now from the rose3 that covered the
pillars, aud her shout of joy as I hounded
from my horse and chased the little flvinir
feet, and tbe loud laugh up and down the
verandah. But my darling, your bright
little face will oever go laughing aud romp
ing up the old veranda again !"
And the Northerner drew near to Iho
Southerner, and the hot tears s'ood on bis
cold cheeks, as he said :
14 May God have pity on our fatherless
"Amep !" said the Southerner, fervently.
And the Norlhernsr spoke in a buky
whisper, for the eyes of the dying map were
" We have fought together like brave
meo. We are going before our God in a
little while. Let us forgive each other."
The Southerner tried to speak, but the
soupd djed away jn the gurgle from his
white lips; but he took the band of his
fallen foe, and bis stiffened Augers closed
tight over it, and his last look was one of
forgiveness and peace. And when the next
morning's sun walked upon the grey stair
of the dawn, touched with pink, it looked
down and saw the two fues lying dead, with
their hands clasped in each other's, by the
stream which ran by the battle-fleld.
And the little yirL-ith golden hair who
watched under the plum tree among the
hills of New Hampshire, and the little girl
with bright brown hair that waited by the
roses among the greeo plaps of Georgia,
THE GAME OF EUCHB2 A'iO Lik'S.
There is a genuine humor in the idea
that au AtkatiAas man finds the. moit nat
Ural exprepsqu, even of parting atlvice to
his son, iu the language of the card table,
and (be manner iu which the terms of the
game of ?, euchre" is there fitted, iu fthe
game of life, ;s very ingenious :
bob, ou are about leawng home for
strange parts. You're going to throw me
out of the game, and go it alone. The
odds is against you, l$ob; bu,t remember
also that iudustry and perseverance are tbu
winning cards; they are tha 'bowers.'
Book Jarnin', and all that sort of thing,
will be to fill up with, jike a small trump,
but youf must have the bowers to bac 'em,
eh.e they ain't worth shucks.. If luckrun-.
against you pretty strong, don't cave in
aud look like a sick chicken on a rainy day,
out nold up your head, and make om be
lieve you're flush of trumps; they won't
play so hard agio you.
" Vq lived and trayeled around some,
Bob, aud I've found out that as soon a
folks thought you held out a weak hand,
they'd baet agio you strong. So wber.
you're sorter weak, put on a b.ild ftont.but
play cautious, be satisfied with a p'int.
Many'8 the hand I've seeu euchred, cnue
they played for too much. Keep yourejea
wen sKinned, 15ob ; don't let 'em ui ' on
you ; recollect the game lays as much with
the head as with the hands. Be temperate,
never get rtjunk ; for then, no matter how I
gooa your nana, you
uiaj u; uum oowers ana tue ace won t
&ave you, for there's sartiu to be a miss
deal ' or something wrong.
" And another thing, (this was spoken
in a low tone) don't go too much ou the
women ; queens is kinder poor cards ; the
more you have of them the worse for you ;
you might have three and nary trump. 1
dou't say discard 'em all ; if you get hold
of one that's a trump, it's all guod, and
there's sartin to be one out of four. And
above all. Bob, be honest; never take a
man's trick wot don't belong to you ; nor
-lip cards, por nig,' for then you can't
look your man in the face, and when that't.
the case, there's no fun in the game; itV
regular l cut-throat. So uow, Bob, fare
well ; remember wot I tell you and you'll
be sure to win, apd if you donU, sarves you
righjt if you get bkuuked.'

Hwwel;JiOQest marijnst for the sake
of your etenmy.- - lft-- iSd
Many years ago, in England, when tra
velers were woat to journey qn horseback,
and blept two in a bed at taverns, the fol
lowing droll incident occurred at Chester :
lwo young bloods stopped at the Bed
Fox ia,vern, and while going up to bed late
at night (it being hot weather,) they tlis
covered the door of one of tho bed rooms
open. It so happened that a Scotchman
and Irishman were both asleep in the bed ;
and ths: Irishman" had " kicked the kiver
off," and one of his legs lay naked and
nearly out of bed. v
" I'll have some sport now." said one of
the bloods to his mate, if you'll hold the
light a minute."
The candle was held while the young
chnp went in, and, taking up one of the
Irishman's spurs (travelers on horseback
wore spurs in those dajs), bupkled it on
the heel of Paddy's naked foot. He then
gave Paddy's leg a pinch, and hid himself
behind the door. Paddy (though pot awak
ened) drew his leg suddenly back, and in
this way sadly damaged the Scotchman's
nukd leg with the spur.
" The de'el d n ou !" exclaimed Don
ald, rubbing his leg, "an' ef ye dinna gang
oot o' bed and cut yer toe paiN, I'll soon
be gettin' up and throw yer oot th' window.
yer loot 1"
The Irishman yet slept soundly, and soon
put bis leg back in its old position, when
the young joker, who had put on the spur.
stole up to tbe bed and pinched his leg the
second time. In went the leg again, the
spur striking the Scotchmap's leg, wbo now
got in a terrible pas-ion, and began to
pummel Paddy, exclaiming, as usual,
" (jet oot o bed and cut yer toe nails, ye
loot ! Do ye fash a Vjhristiao mon to stau'
such a rough diggfn' ?"
This waked np the Irishman, who at that
moment bringing the spur to bear on his own
other leg. .vaulted out of bed. Having pro
cured a light, he looked down at tbe spur
with the greatest astonishment.
" By my sowl,1' said he, what a stupid
fool isthe hostler of this inn ; sure au' he
tuk off me boots whip I wint to bed, and
has left on one ov me spurs. Strange it is
I didn't notjee it !"
This explanation being satisfactory to
Donald, harmony was restored, while the
author of the uii?chcf sneaked out of the
room to his' own nest.
won't know how to there gives a loud stamp with his foot, and
the following conversation lakes place be
tween him and the approaching party:
"Who goes there?" jvey?." "Whose
keys?" Qieen Victoria's Keys." "Ad
vance, Qtieun Vic'oria's Keys, and all is
well." The yeoman porter then exclaims:
" God bless Queen Victoria." Tho main
guard devoutly responds, "Amen." The,
ollieer on duty gives the tvord, " Present
Arras," the fire-looks rattle, the officer then
kisses the hilt of his suord, tbe escort fall
in among their companions, and the yeo
man porter marches majestically across the
parade ground alone to deposit the keys in
the lieutenant's lodgings. Tho ceremony
over, not only is all cgicss and ingress to
tally precluded, but those within being
furnished with the countersign, any one'
who, unhappily forgetful, ventures from bis
quarters unprovided with this talisman, is
sore to be made the prey of the first senti
