Heath is ordered to report to headquarters at Chattanooga. An aide Is present at the Interview. The general is shown an order for his arrest and court-martial, and is then assigned to speolal duty to watch & contemplated movement of Longstreet'A corps.' He ac cepts. CHAPTER IL-Gen. Heath leaves Chat tanooga with 600 men, his brigade, agd moves out to Morgnnton'a cross-roads. On the way be meets with a girl he knows who lives at the place he is to make his headquarters. He insists on her returning with nis troops. At her home It is thought a face was seen at the window, but a search through the house revealed no suspicious persons. Lieut. Hall, the-aide, 1b placed in charge of the young lady with orders to watcn her and question her carefully. She faints. CHAPTER IIL—When questioned she said her mother is for the confederacy and herself for the union. At night she is ting to burn JLII again sees a mysterious facs at the win dow. CHAPTER V.—Gen. Heath accepts a pa role from Miss Beach at the suggestion of Lieut. Hall, who proposes to answer for her. During the night she slips out of the house and escapes. CHAPTER VI.—The federal troops are 1A •ieut. surprised at night and In the fight 1 Hall is captured. CHATER VII.—Lieut. Hall Is taken be fore a confederate, UaJ. Berante, who had been a classmate of Gen. Heath at West Point and served with him In the west. He claimed to have an incriminating letter written by Heath offering to surrender his command In the army to the mayor of a southern town In which he was stationed. Hall sees the letter. Margaret Beach turns up and at night assists Hall to as* cape. "Halloo!" he said, surprised "I thought you were taken." "So I -was. I escaped." "Good!" lie was very much pleased^ and grasped me warmly by the hand. "How did you manage it?" "Well, you see, general, until a pris oner is confined in regular quarters, he is not very well guarded." "You nre right there quite a number of our men have come in." He sat down to breakfast. "Well?" "Last night was kept in bivouac with other prisoners. The camp on one side was protected by wagons instead of & sentry. I rolled over to one of the wagons, hid myself under It, and then made oft in the darkness on the other side." "Where was the guard all the while?" "Chatting." "With whom?" The general was but tering piece of corn bread. "A woman." "A woman?" He smiled. "The nicest bits of deviltry in this war are accomplished by women." This was not according to my re hearsal at all. "How did you get the command away, general?" I aslted, changing the subject in order to gain time to think. "I didn't they got themselves away by hard fighting. We managed to get together—those of us who were left— and retreated here." "Why didn't the enemy follow?" "They will, as soon as they have formed a junction with others of their forces. My vedettes are on the lookout for them. But this woman who was chatting with the sentry?" "She kept him talking while I rolled under the wagon then I cut—" "Who was she?" "I cut through the woods, jumped a fence, and—" "The woman?" "What the devil does it matter who she was, general?" I blurted, losing my self-control., lie should have put me under arrest for an insubordinate an swer. He did no such thing he seemed to enjoy my discomfiture. "H'ml Chcrcliez la femme. I shall be delighted to hear of one woman in the south favoring the union cause, cl oven a young union soldier who carries his heart on his sleeve." His mocking tone had been making mo angry ever since the conversation began. His last remark made me hot. "The woman in this ease," I cried rebelliously, "is one of the noblest of Ood's creatures." "And this noble creature's name is—1 "Margaret Beach." The general started and turned pale. "Where did you meet her?" he asked, quickly. "Jn a house occupied by the com manding officer of the rebels." He strove hard to conceal his feel ings. It was impossible. His head dropped on his chest and a shiver shot through his body. Then suddenly re covering himself, his expression changed from that of a stricken man to that of one nerved for any duty. "General," I said, in a husky voice, "I am ready to resign my position on your stall? and submit to court-martial." "My boy," he said, kindly, and I knew that on this occasion he used the ex pression alTectiouutely, "your resigna tion would not be ucccptcd, and you will not be tried. Your action in tins matter is perfectly satisfactory to me." There was a pause, to break which I asked: "Have you any orders, gen eral?" "Yes. Bring the prisoner to ine." She was no loagcr Margaret Beach she was "the prisoner." Going to the house, I told Margaret that the general wanted to see her. Well as she realized the change her lost act had made in him, she did not realize it fully. But she was perfectly calm and prepared for anything. We found the general waiting for us before his tent. "Miss Beach," he said, as if address ing a stranger, "you were caught with information in your possession intend ed for the enemy. Your word of honor was xledged not thus to offend again, whereupon you were given your liberty, and at once took advantage of it to go to the enemy's camp. It is plain to me for what purpose but I confess I do not understand your return. I would be glad to hear your explanation." "I have no explanation to make, gen eral." She used the word "general" with the same cold emphasis he had used when addressing her as Miss Beach. "Are you content to remain a per jurer?" "For my acts I am accountable to no human being." There was a short silence, during which the two regarded each other intently. In the general's face I could see nothing but condemnation, while I fancied 1 saw a quick glance of re proach in Margaret's dark eyes, like the Hash of a gun at night. "From this moment," thegeneral said, "your fate is in other hands than mine. You will be tried by QOurt»nartlal, a*tut ftntit Ihi MM MITCHEL. pronounced on one engaged in secrct service." I led Margaret back to the house, where an order soon followed to place her in close confinement. There's going to be the devil to pay," said Waltar, half an hour later. "The general has got one of his fits on." Even the men seemed to know that something was in the wind. Old "salts" of the sea could not more certainly predict foul weather in the sky than the troops could see hard fighting in the general's face. About dark we got the first flash of the coming storm. The general called me to him and or dered me to ride to the headquarters of the different commands, directing each commanding officer to send two of his bcBt men, especially fitted for scouting service, to report in person at head quarters. I gave the order, and the men reported as directed. The general sent them out by twos, apportioning the neighboring territory among them, with a new to discovering the posi tions occupied by the different bodies of the enemy. After they had left, he directed me to bring Corporal Plunk, his favorite Bcout,alongleanIndianian, whose principal occupation during the days when the prairies of his native state were being opened by the plow was shaking with ague. He had his own way of doing everything, and could no more be induced to follow a plan laid out for him than a mountain horse could be guided by its rider over a rocky trail. He sometimes scouted in uniform, but was quite as likely to go out in the garb of a citizen. It was not long before I had him standing be fore the general, not at attention, for Buch a position was not possible with him, but loitering awkwardly till the general, who was intent upon a map spread out before him, should notice him. "Corpora*," said the general, sud denly, "you must bring me the en emy's position, and that before mid night. This to the most important service on which I have ever sent you. Take the best horse in the command and go." BTSrn con- fined under guard as a spy* CHAPTER IV.—Gen. Heath's command Is attacked by confederates, but they eaten off. During the fight LdeUt. Hare Having dispatched his scouts, the general lay down on his cot, a Bignal for us all that we might turn to rest or amusement. Walter and I, instead of preparing for what was to come, as we should have done, spent the time in a game of shinplasters. Inveterate gamester as I was, on this occasion I tried to beg off, for my heart and mind were full of Mhrgaret Beach. But Walter sus pected the cause of my unwillingness to play, and, not wishing him to see any further than necessary into the state of my mind, I yielded. Once well started in the game, I forgot Margaret, the approaching operations, every thing but the cards, and at 12 o'clock* when the scouts began, to come in and the general needed me, he had to call twice before I heard him. The reports were conflicting and of little value. Most of the men had gath ered their information from citizens, who either did not have any informa tion to give or purposely misled them. About one o'clock Plunk came in, slow ly ambling on his nag, bearing all the information required. 'Bout three mile above where the Tennessee runs into the Hiwassee on the west bank, I ran afoul of a rebel camp. I counted animals and made out purty nigh onto six hundred Bight opposite, across the river, were some more, and I judged by their camp fires purty nigh as manv." "That all?" "All I could find." "What guard across the Hiwassee?" "One company with two small can non." "Good." And the corporal was dis missed. The general called his officers to his tent, and, spreading a map on a pine table, lighted by a tallow dip, informed them of his plans. "Here, gentlemen," he said, point ing to the position of the confederates, "are two bodies of the enemy. You see here, just above the junction of the two rivers, a bridge crossing the Ten nessee. It is still held by a small rebel force with two guns. The two forces will meet at the bridge, and, moving in separate columns by these two roads leading to our position here—" "G-ff-geueral," interrupted Snaffle, "you talk as if you were in command of the rebels instead of us. How do you know all this?" "Major," replied his commander, "how don't you know all this? There's the map, here are the separato bodies of the enemy, and your eyesight is good." Sn&ffle made no reply for awhile. He studied the map with an expression of great wisdom. "I suppose," he said, presently, "the proper thing to do is to engage the main fbrce on this side, trusting to b-b-beat it before the others can cross." "That is not my plan. I shall go straight for the bridge." "W-w-what are you going to do at the b-b-bridge?" "Take it." r1 "Then what?" "Go over it." "And get c-c-eorncred on that point, with a river on each.flank, and in rear?' "We will hold this bridge." Snaffle scratched liis head. "G-g-gen eral," he said, "I don't remember ever having seen a campaign like that laid down in any of the books.' "It's very simple, major. Your plan of attack on the main force up here would never do. The others would cross the bridge, unite, and you would have to fight them all together. Gen tlemen, you understand what we have to do. Let us be off." As I look back on all that was ac complished on that eventful morning, I wonder if the general did not wave a magical wand over the enemy to com pel him to his purpose. I remember the night march to the bridge our men moving stealthily as we approached it, to surprise the guard, and springing up suddenly before the two pickets who drowsily watched then our whole force olattering across, the main guard surrounded in their tents, the little knot of prisoners huddled together in the gloom. I remember the general posting Wil ton at the west end of the bridge, with instructions to hold it while the rest •f WM! to attack th« tore* link iii miiw a im tme. 4 wsy-r^'-rrr-.^M^, ludicrous scene thrusts itseii on my memory amid the volleys, the shouting of orders, confederate yells, turmoil death. While we march northward to attack the confederates on the east bank, there, on the other side of the river, within 6iglit, but out of range, marching in a parallel line with us, is the force we left on the west bank. They can't trouble us, for the bridge is several miles below and held by Wil ton, and the only shots we fire at them are gibes. We come upon the enemy we are going to attack, advancing to meet us. Two lines of battle—theirs the smaller a short, sharp fight Snaffle to the rear surrender. And all this while across the river stands the force that has beaten us, looking on with no power to assist their com rades. On a stump stands their com mander, gesticulating, swearing, shak ing his fist at us, brandishing his saber, shouting like a madman. Then we hurry back to the bridge, where wc find Wilton fighting the ad vance of the force on the west bank. With the assistance of two captured guns, the general leads us against the advancing foe, and, falling upon it like a thunderbolt, puts it to rout. But who is this pursy, red-faced, wild-eyed little man spurring towards the general, every corkscrew curl shak ing like the spring of bird-cage? It Is Snaffle. Some momentous question is on his mind. "G-g-g-general," he began, before coming fairly within hearing, "w-w will you have the k-k-kindness to ex plain how the d-d-devil it was that w-w-we were not b-b-bagged instead of the enemy? W-w-we did every tiling w-we could to get ourselves into a t-t-t-trap. It seems to me that plan of campaign w-w-was the most f-f-f-f-f—" He tripped on his fs and could get no further. 'Major," said the general, in the 6oft voice he could assume when he wished, 'our success is due to your marked ability in getting into their rear." There is another scene which oc curred after all was over, and when the general and I were riding into the yard of the plantation. The sun was at our backs, and shining directly on the front of the house, Hooding it with a bright light. Looking UJJ at the "spook win dow," as Walter had named it, there again—was it human, or was it a dream? 1 reined in my horse and stared wildly at it. Surely I could not be in my senses. It. was the same face I had seen before, but now, with the light full upon it and with more time to see it, it was plainly that of a young girl. She could not have been more than 1? years old. At first I thought her Margaret Beach but she was not Margaret besides being younger, she was radiantly beautiful at least, so she seemed to my youthful eyes. But the strangest part of it is yet to come. Her long black hair was streaming over her shoulders, so that I knew, be she ghost or flesh, she was a woman. And yet—mirabile dictu!—her attire was that of a confederate officer. "General, look, quick!" "What is it?" "The face at the window." As I spoke the slats were turned. "I see no face." It was on the tip of my tongue to tell him what I had seen, but if he doubted my statement that I had seen simply a face, how could I expect him to believe that I had seen a girl dressed in confederate uniform? Such an ap parition could come only to a diseased brain. For once prudence came to me, Heaven knows how, and I re frained. "Perhaps I was mistaken," I said. The general looked at me curiously, but said nothing. But what I had seen—if indeed it was real—brought a horrible confirmation The face at. the window. against Margaret. She must be guilty of all of which she was accused. Till this moment I had hoped that this un certain vision might be the real culprit who would eventually relieve her of blame. Since the distinct view I had at last had of it, I knew that the child like face I had seen could not belong to man or woman capable of entering an enemy's lines, making drawings of his works, and traveling miles muddy roads to transmit them to her employer. Margaret, with her stronger nature, might do all this, the young girl at the window never. Margaret had been stopped by us in the act of carrying the plans. She had been in terrupted by me in the attempt to burn those plans. Finding herself foiled, she had eagerly given her parole, only to break it in order to transmit what in formation she could to the confeder ates. She was a desperate, treacherous "woman without a conscience. When I dismounted I found that I had dug my spurs into my horse's blanks with such force that the blood ran in a triokling stream. X. A COMPACT. The next day Margaret was tried, the court sitting in tlic very room where the plans of Burnside's works hud been taken from her. The prisoner was pale, but self-possessed. The general was not present. An oilicer read the charge and specifications in the formal, chop py manner usual to the reading of or ders at dress parade. It set forth that Margaret Beach did, on or ubout the —th day of October, 1863, have in her possession plans of the defenses of Knoxville, Tenn., with the intent to transmit them to the enemy, and, hav ing given her parole not to escupe, had visited tlie enemy's camp. I, being cognizant of every event re quiring proof, was the only witness called for the prosecution, and Mar garet made no defense. I testified to having interrupted the burning of the plans, the parole Margaret had given, and her disappearance from the planta tion. I intended to make the most of lier having assisted me to escape, but on describing my meeting with her in the enemy's camp a sense of the •enormity of her act swept over me with such force that I hesitated, stammered, and at last broke down, making it plain that I was trying to convince the •court of what I did not believe myself. Margaret, being called upon to speak iu Mr defease, limply itlii "It wtulA MfaM Mfe «9|U ,. Mppjif" cence in face tt Bttcn 'strong proor against me." In view of the evidence and the ab sence of any defense, there was nothing for the court to do but to find the pris oner guilty. One circumstance only was in her favor—her having assisted me to escape, and her return to face what must surely follow. But it was suspected that I had found favor in her eyes, and her return was explained on the ground that, being a woman, she believed she could come and go unpun ished. When the case was closed the officers composing the court with drew, and after a brief consultation re turned with a verdict of guilty. The general sent, for me and asked me to give him an account of the trial. He made no comment on what I told him. After an opxressive silence, which he did not seem inclined to break, partly to escape from the gloom that overhung ,us both and partly to divert his mind, I ventured upon the military situation. "Is there any hope, general, of our reaching the railroad?" "No they have cavalry enough to patrol all the railroads in Tennessee." "Why not send a spy?" 4 I don't like spies." (TO 11K OONTINI'EI).)
