"Peace. Sweet Peace."
. The 1 riss of Kurtlicin Ohio, for the tries'
part, have now rvtnk the art ran in ti c pr.
triot have bolRtcd the Sfn!e Vnion Ticket
find are tiow tattling manrnlly for the Stars
and Stripes. There are, however, a few pa
pers that, with the Davtoii Empire ami
(sheets of alike ilk, keep up the cry of party.
They nmko n 'ciriblo lus jtbotit tiio "enor
mous tux this wur will create," atiJ cry 1 1
pitiful toi.es, "peace, ewoet jitace, give v.r
pedce nt any Baerifice." Xow it muat Lc
tulmtttoa that "pence" hns a sweet sonnt',
atul that it hns associatc.l with it all that in
gentle, lovely atul luxurious AVh&t a pity,
fieii, thai the Lhssful Herenity of EJcn was
ever disturbed; that heaven itself was once
marred with impious rebellion and war, mid
that the universe i not one perfect piece
ofbcmly, music and rapture! Cuf'the
was war in heaven," and the crushtd 11 l i
lion of the itigiatc nnp;e'.8 j:iai nu tied the e
ternnl peace of heaven. A A the strifen. con
vulsions, storms and other iniclic'ticH of na
ture, result in brighter skic.purer alis.riel -er
harvests, and I'icsh worlds of rejoicing
liTc. llniuun pro-rcsa is bo:-n of experiment,
trial, slrifo, revolution and war. In their
onward march, nations must now and then
descend into thu vale of adversity, in order
to rcaea and scale the loftier bights of pros-
penty beyond. Lvd may not I 0 necessary,
but it in certain, and certain to fructimte in
blessirifs. '1 ho very charnis of pence, the
luxuries amid which wo nestle so fondly,
and which induct s in n.i RVteh nn tpversion
to war, arc the fruilsof bloody battles. The
consecutive s:a.;cs of civilizat on are marked
by wars, and each new nnd more glorious
epoek comes in with a baptism of blood.
The present war is a uue-?.l of the 1 u.?
tion of 177t3, tny many. So it is. The pruni
inent features of that question, "Are the
people of this country caj able of bcil'-go-
........ ,L:1.1I .1.. ... . . . ....
Iwiiiui-iii; imii me major.ty ru.e; U.
shall a minority, and aristocracy of wealth.
successfully appeal from 1 1 1 0 dec s ou ef the
people to the arbitrament of anus';" oj pcu!:
with telling force upon each iover of cot sl.t -
tiomd law. It is the iiuestion ol human lib
erty in its inlcuscbt foim.
Upon this point wo are inclin; 1 to pub
s:itute the remarks of Judge W.iitohy at
Bowling Groen. To those who ate stih talk
ing of compromise, and ask for peace with
the rebels on any terms, lie said: ''Then,
can be no compromise, for the reason thai
the secession Ms long since tmphaticail;
and flatly refused to engrgo in one, and a. c
now in no position in which one can be ivauic
with them. At present none can evui be
proposed. A prior question, on which com
promise is inconceivable, and is in the na
ture of things utterly impossible, must be
settled before there can bo p.?ace. Thov
aro in armc 1 rebcll.cn. C'onccss'i n to them
would be po:)si:)ic not compromise. It
v -i.l 1 neccss:uilv be the v'cld u - of everv-
thing, or c!.-c thcro could bo no concessini..
The cty of peace, therefore, is one for the re
cognition of the so-cdicil Southern Confed
eracy,. "il m t'ie present postuic of affairs, 1
would be identical with the dcsti notion (.
the American goverrunctit. I till yon, ny
friends, there cau bo no peace until the reb
els lay down their arms and return to the r
allegiance. This th -y must do; tiicu wc shall
ive ieace and not till tlien."
The Action of the Partizan Democracy
Pleasing to the Rebels.
T.io Louisvillo Courier, the organ of tl o
rebels in Kentucky, thus comments upon
too action of ti e Democracy in refusing to
join hands with tho Republicans in the
Union cause:
"Tub Noktii Divided The Sorm Becom
ivo Uxitki). -The people of the Northern
Suites are at length beginning to awake.and
taking n decided stand in favor of pence
I n-j-ainst the war. Tiie Demovraio
Pari! is rapidly reorganizing, ann in cccri
Northern Stalf hns refused to cioxro'e
with the ll'ivihlicaa J'artu. l".ii! tlx
poopla of thu North are becoming divided
me UL.MUtiA JiS generally Ol'J'OtilXG
and thu Jirptiblicans mtftaiaing the. irar it
a gratify. nir fact that Ihe i.eoi do of tho
mth. are every day becom ing more united
and determined. Tho continuance r.f tl.o
war unites the South and weakens and di
vides the No th. The Xorth ;m Denwi-aci
are stating the true cause of the war, whit'n
has been brought about by tho continued
aviation of tho slave y question; and bold
ly timer t that fie ma.u reason tor the fur
ther yiroseoiit:i n of the war is that slavery
which tho Itepuldunns I'loclaim to bo the
causo ot the war, shall, be abolished."
It tlicro is a Democrat in Wood countv
who has not yet made up his ni'nd to 6up.
port the Union movement of the State, let
him carefully read and reflect upon the im
portanco ol taking a true btand for the
Union at this juncture. The rebels are cal
dilating much upon our divisions here in
tho North. Let us show them that when
question of Government or no Govern
nient comes up, we can throw aside partisan
issues and part zan ferlnj e, and join in
solid column for tho cause of tho Union.
frusr Democrats, when they assail the Re
publicans on account of the alleged corrup
tion m the nr Department, forget that Mr-
Van Wyck, a Republican member of Con.
gress fioiu New York, was tl.o first to pro
pose an investigation of the charge. Be
cause Simon Ci.meron has been guilty of
favor t siu, 'b that at y reason why Democrats
boiiM not sustain tho Government in carrv.
on the war?

Our neighbor of the Independent has af
foctcd such virtuous indignation at every

ire;kiast- o togcnt'ier, conl.l not fail to ru
in'trk the auhrineps of the winthrr.
"We slmll have lain to-lay," s.tid Perchev.
"Tu-ni;ht will answer for " our purpivs 1
think.'1 1 1

"I hope so," was the rerlr, "I
was the reply, "I wont to
leave."
"Then you do t ot relish

your present
"No, no; I iltu't gy that," replied he
tnrncst! v.
"I see lutw it is." s'lid lrchcy,"no youne.
fillow like to bo kept under such restrain',
t uey want to bo run:iiiij about, breathing
the fn sh air."
"iMt, f,,r that mutter," raid Henri, laugh
ing, "I sha'l not grumble with this uir.
But I have another nnd fur move important
reason," an.l l.o glanced al Mario ; their eyes
met. nnd the young gdl bluubivl.
"Well. I have no wish tn learn any ofyour
secrets," said Perchey, as he put on h's'hat.
For some finonllor the fisherman's depar
ture, there was tidtal silence, lletui iat
looking nt tiie wall in a very meditative
mood, while Mario busied herself inch ariig
an ay tho breaklnst service. At length the
Voiiug limn spoke:
"Mat o." he said "you must think I uni
possessed ol great ila;rat tude. to wish to
leave you no soon, after the great service
you have rendered im"
"I have no wish to ipiestion your motives'"
she replied coldly. "You hive sa d that
you had fcuflieiont reasons."
"Well, cannot you imagine the reason?
'Tis yon, Marie your dangerous beauty."
"1 think I understand you sir !" she' re
plied haughtily, "(.if course the proud son
of one of tho greatest nobles of Franco
i ouhl not stop I, wed the noice of a poor
fisherman."
It is not that, Marie. I trust you could noi
think so low of mo. Ilesides "you I'.u uet 1
have no title now. They are Ml abolished.
Thee is another, and a weightVr reason."
"You speak in riddles, llt-tn i," she said in
a more kindly tone. "1 uni not eiy good
at gii"tMi!i:."
"Well, Murie,I leave to-night; and though
we sua. I proluili.y never meet again, set I
value your opinion too much to leave' yon
w ith sitcli a ba I impression of me. My" lit
tl" tale is soon told :
"1 was bom in the southern part of Franco,
at my luther's country mansion. 1 was cd
i cated there by a irivuto tulor. who though
a talented and excellent teacher, whs ol a
vacillating disposition. It was not longeie
I found iiiymdf niaster of my aelioi s. and I
was not slow in nrolUing by this (.'iicum
Muhce. 1 studied when it suited me, mid
ro.le out or played, when 1 wished. My
education would, under the circuni.slanceM,
I tear, have boon rather a poor one, but lor
the lad that I wan endowed with more than
usual talents, and I would often nludy to
obhge my poor tutor, when he could never
m.il.o me otherwise. On the whole I pro-gre.-se.l
tolerably well. but 1 became ex
tremely se'i-wdled and exacting. Tin' only
pernons 1 loll any awe of, or fe ir of. was my
inther. And, rtrance as it was. 1 always
regarded his wishes im laws tn me, and nev
er though ol disputing his commands. To
be sure the latter wero verv lew. ns he on.'v
paid me occasional visits, and never rcniuin-
ef long. Jl.a business at the court kept him
too ou.jy to attend m m-li to me.
"Thus passed away my time until I wan
fif con yen;-,, o! a..,e, when my father asking
.ion to get me a couiniii.Mion m the a.n.v. 1 !
n.i 1 taken a uesiro to servo tho king in that
branoh of the service, and was ilel'i.t tuitu d
to do S t.
"To my f ti'.-pr'nO and mortification, his
anr.wer wan, that 1 must not think of ,t, that
iie wuuid j r iciii o me a situ. it on at court.
t;i;U would su;t me much better. For u
wild? I was mi overcame with in.lignntion,
ihat I wan u:ii,blc toiinish roa ling the letter,
lie wiote to iiilorin mo that he was coming
on w.th an old friend of his, the Count de
Verges an I li s daughter Marie. 1 had of
ten In ai d my fathei speak of the former.
They had been old comrades together when
and stedlast friends ever since. In
order to bind their friendship and erpotu
ate it, they had determined no the letter
ran to wed their offspring. In fact.l i ow
learned that I had been engaged to .Vide
moisclle de Verges, and that she was as ig
norant of the fact an I. As both of them
foresaw that obstacles might arise, it the
union uas delayed, they came to tho con
clus on that we had better bo made one be
fore either of us became old enough to form
any new utlachment. The luiri'oit of the
visit, then, was to have us united.
"My first impulse on reading tins elabo
rate letter was to burst into laughter. The
idea of f.vo pei so.is marrying who had nev
er seen each ether, was supremely ridicu
lous. Then came the thoiignt ol my father's
sternness, and how dangerous it might be
to oppose his w.ll. To bo sure it was a
great blow to my vanity to thus he dispos
ed of, without consulting mo ; but then the
thought struck mo that I might yield con
ditionally, and 1 wrote to my father that I
Would coniidv with h.s re.niesf. but onlv on
the condition that
I would bo allowed to
enter tue army.
"My father acceded to our proposal, prob
ably expecting that I would soon tiro of war.
Well, in short, we were married, and imme
diately afterward I received my eouhnission
liculeiiant. I four my foeiings toward
my little wife wero hardly proper; I looked
upon her in tho light of tin enemy, and felt
an umiccountablu leeling of repugnance to
ward her,"
"Probably she was very ugly."
"On tho contrary slut was one of ihe most
beautiful girls 1 ever saw; almost us hand
some as yourself .Marie. lint the rest is
soon told. I remained in the army unld a
few days ago, when I received n note from
my father, tcll'tig im- he was about to fleo
from the countiy, and advising mu to follow
Ins example. I had plevioilsU heard of the
troubles at Paris, but hud thought it an out
break of the peoplo which would soon bo
incited. Hut, on receiving sueh an epistle
from my father, who I knew was not prone
exaggeration, I hastily threw up my
commission, and came here to Hun the futo
my lather and his family. 1 forgot to say
that Mario had returned to school aftor our
strange marriage, and at tho tint's of my
father's letter, tho two families had been
living together near Paris. I only arrived
town the day I came here. I noticed
that I was looked upon with suspicion at
the inn I stopped at, so I staid in my room

"What mean you, Henri?" askod Marie,
innocently.

CHAPTER V.
Towards evening the tain teased, but
ilaik clouds still hovered menacingly, and
the air was vapory and foggy, luconse
ouenee of this, the darkness was so intense
that a person could hardly see his own
hands. Nothing eould be "more favorable
to the fugitive. A ft or partaking ot u hasty
nipper, our two friends sallied' forth. The
nignt was so dark that the young man lost
ad recollection of tin way they pursued; he
could only follow I'orche'y. who turned out
of tho alley, into one ol "the streets which
led to the Seine. They met many persons,
but no one stop e l them. Pierro took his
way down to the licet of boats which were
moored at the latubng, and took his place
in the smallest one there. Tho young man
did Ihe same, and the fisherman, handling
Iho oats with tiie skid of one who has bad
long practice, the little craft shot out into
the stream.
"Wo bad better lake the other side nt
oucc.uu we are less bkely to meet the guard
boats," said Perchey.
The huh- boat danced over tho waves,
and in a few minutes the heavy shadow H
denoted they won. approaching the other
shore. Tiio bend of tiio boat was now
turned downstream, uifii for some time noth
ing was heard but. tho steady stroko of tho
oars, and the dasli of water under the prow.
Suddi idy ihe li diermnn dropped his oars,
and sat iu the utt Hide of one liMi-ning. For
some time Henri could I ear nothing,' but at
length he discerned the noise of oars.though
very laintly.
" 'Tis the guard bot !" said lYrehev.
"What shall we do V"
"Lie st. II. Tney may not come near usl"
Colli men sat peliectly quiet. Thestea iv
fall of oars was hoard, i"andlv approaching
them.
"I: is useless ; they will be upon us in a
few iinniiies," said the fisherman.
"Then I am lost 1" said the young noble.
"1 tear do. Our appearance down here,
on such a night as this, is suspicious, and if
they apprehend us, you ure certain t be
iceoginxod, and then olf eg both of our
heads."
"Then I wiil not bo taken. !" exclaimed the
young man, drawing a pistol.
"No, no! put up your weapon, r.csist
ance is u.-eles. 1 have it." continued the
fisherman, as a thought sttuck him; "uke
the o n s, quick 1"
"i ll 1 cannot row 1"
"All ihe belter for my purpose. Fe quick;
they aro iq on us!"
1 lie young man hastily noised the oars,
and iiiado a bungling ui tempt to row.
"So, sirrali !" exclaimed tin; fisherman in a
loud yoicc, "ili.H is what you call rowing.
This is what you lea; n in the eoniitrv ! A
:..n.. i:..' , . '
joim im.iciiiiuii you win inaive when you
cannot handle an oar 1"
The next moment tho guard boat shot
alongside.
"Is that, you. Perchey ?" said Ihe officer of
tho boat.
"Ay, it is me, mon lieutenant!"
"And whom have you there'.'"
"Who, indeed 1" exclaimed IVichev, in a
pretended rage. "Tho greatest ass "in the
whole country. And but (hat h is my sis
ter's son, he should never put foot in boat
of mine. A great help ho will be, when I
havo to ttikn him out at night to practice
rowing. He would be laughed al in tho day
time. Look at him."
As he spoke, the
young man's oar slipped,
im iu.o tl.o water. Tl.
anil nearly threw him into tho water. Tin.
lieutenant liucdied, as ho said : I
'W ell, IVrchey, if any one can leach him,
is you. Vou wiil soon make a fisherman
him !"
"He shall return into the country to-mor- I
rw. Mid lercliey, in a determined tone.
liciiieiiant laughed, nnd orderod the I f.
boat to move on. As s-.on as they were
s"ne, iiroii ei.ispL-n me iisnerman s nanil, .
warnity, saving:
Ki nave saved my hie. I sha'l not
soon forgi t the debt I owe you. The time
may come when I can reward ymt as your
merits deserve."
"I believe you arc now safe, Still those
dlows may takeTi i oLiou to return, so we
had better niovo on. As for reward. I ask
other than that afforded by a good eon
Bciicnce." The boat, was soon dancing over tho
waves ngicn, and it was not lung before the '
on ru i.oihiiil; as I i acneii , nnu inn young
man stepped ashore, A warm grasp of tho
hand was interchanged, and the next mo
ment the boat was gone. Tiie young man
then turned, and, following the liirectmn of
Perchey, he was soon seated in tho dilliscnco
which dies between Paris and Calais, and
the way to the latter city. Wo will not I
follow his actions particularly ; suffice it to '
say, tout on arriving ut t alius, he lound that
would be impossible to cross into England, i
he. was compelled to proceed tn Hoi- I
land ; from thoairo he managed to cross in a I
i thoairo he managed to cross in a
ick, and finally lie found himself
fish:ng - sm
London.
His first caro was to ascertain his father's
residence, which he did after sonio little
trouble. He was not sorry to find that ho
living in an aristocratic portion of tho
town. Ho also learned that his eild friend,
Marquis de Verges and his daughter,
had just escaped from France, wero
living with him. Poor Henri sighed deeply
ho heard theto last words, hut helort no
in waiting on his father. He was
ushered iu by a strange footman, who was
instructed to say ttal a stranger from Franco
wished to boo liiro. Ho won conducted to a
room where two elderly gentlcrcou were
sipping w.no. They arose with corcmoni
oiis politeness, but tba next moiuer.t one of
them rushod forward and he was clasped
bis father's arms. Tho Marq Pa do Verges
stepped forward, and shook him warm
ly by the hand.
"Wo had almost despaired of seeing you
again," said be; "yet hsd a d d ngoreiu s f mi

"Fnm 'he best liotireo possible, woi ta
reply. "Lint I suppose that you arc err

Henri followed his conductor up stairs.
i (I was le i to the door or a littlo parlor or
uvu'iuii. a it . euir-juiH uien gooj-iiotureoly
pushed nemi iu ahead of him. A yonti)f
girl was rending ut the little tablo, with her
buck to the entrance, glie ntnrted tip ot tho
tioise he made, and turned around. A trpU
known countenance was presented to him.
"Mario ! you hero ?" ho cxclaiiiiod, bso

Our tale Is finished; a few moro words
only ia necessary. It uppcurfl that Mario,

he did, determined to roe: iiehuid.ns sho

many danger-!, but to gain his ht, when
disguised, as then tuuio would be no repug

To this end. she-find placed herself under
the care of l'eiehty. the fisherman, who
bad formerly been u servant of 1 er Uthcr'a.
lie -plan succeeded admirably, owing to tho
fortuitous circumstances already related.
Une thing in certain : Henri do Moreton
never regretted his uuioti with the Fisher
man's niece.
The Prisoners at Richmond.
The officers recently reloaeod upon parole
at Uichinoi.d. whoso arrival at Baltimore
via Fort Monroe, has been cnnouticed. girs
gloomy accounts of the treatment of tho
L'nion iirinoiiers,and particularly tho woond
ed. They represent that the "wounded of
our piisouors who aro under the cm oi th
rebel surgeon': are in 'Si infamously maltreat
ed. They are actua'ly butchered. Amputa
tions and capital operations arc pcnoruied
where there is not the slightest Jieod of them,
and nearly all of theso operations result
latally to the victunis of the eareleyancssi
and cruelty of the rebel surgeon and tho
tia it of all ac omodations required for
wounded and sick men. The prisoners
compbin of the marked discourtesy luani
feHied towards tai'iu by the people ut Kih
uiond, and particularly the Virginians. Tho
only evidences of humanity exhibited
