arrived from New York, but they were unable
to afford any assistance, as “ their butts did
not fit.’* , .
At length, after the burning of three hun
dred houses, the fire was stopped hy the blow
ing up of two houses on Concord stieet, near
the corner of Washington. .
Little did Captain Hart think of the amount
of injury his diabolical plotting would do,
when he determined to fire the house to gam
possession of a girl he had resolved to win
But such was the result, and so cunningly had
he and his assistants worked, that no one sus
pected the true origin of the fire. Various re
ports were circulated as to the probable man
ner in which it commenced, but the true facts
of the case were involved in mystery.
CHAPTER X.
All's well that ends well.'*
Two weeks after the great fire, Harry An
drews was married to Mary Gray, and her
mother and sister went to live with them in a
neat little cottage they had rented for a home.
George, soon after the fire, went away from
home to fill a situation offered him in a west
ern city. He grew to be a useful and good
young man.
Nothing has ever been heard of Captain
Hart. He suddenly left the city, without in
forming any one of his destination.
Madame Grover lias long since given up her
two establishments, and may now be receiving
her just reward for her evil deeds upon earth.
Edith followed her sister’s example, and
married a friend of Harry Andrews’.
Mrs. Gray divides her time between her two
children. She is loved and-respected by all
who know her.
Beader, my story is ended. I have tried,
by throwing a thin vail of romance over facts
familiar to every resident of Brooklyn, to make
an attractive and entertaining story. If I have
succeeded in this I am content.

FRIEND S H I P .
BY FINLEY JOHNSON.
Oh! tell me not that Friendship is
A tie that soon is broken;
That it can be severed bv words
That are unkindly spoken ;
That loving hearts by harshness can
From their repose be driven ;
That faithful souls and friendship pul’d
Are not to mortals given.
Ah, no I for in this world of ours
Are those who are true-hearted ;
And rocks might melt before the links
Of Friendship could be parted;
They watch each other’s anxious look,
And love is ever springing
From out their bosoms, while they are
The sweets of friendship singing.
And unkind words but serve to bind
Their hearts more close together;
For they will but the closer cling
As darker grows the weather.
And when the sun again shall shine,
Its rays shall all seem brighter,
And love shall cause the hearts of both
To feel of grief—the lighter.
Oh, yes, there are some faithful souls
With fond and true devotion,
Whose friendship is as lasting as
The mighty waves of ocean.
Oh, yes, our God, in kindness, has
Some treasures to us given,
Whose loving souls by unkind words
Cannot from love be driven.

BT CHRISTINE 11. CABrSNTBB.
“ Have you heard the news Ormsby ?”
“ No, enlighten me.”
“You remember Cardonville ?”,
“ Cardenville, who fought with young
Belmonte ?’ ’
“Yes, the same ; you know after the mur
der, it was nothing less than cold blooded as
sassination glossed over by the name of duel
ing, he was arrested. He has managed to slip
through the fingers of the law and is at large.”
“ Free?”
* 1 Aye, and at his old occupation, gambling
as oooly as ever in his accustomed quarters.”
* 1 And there was such sympathy for the
youth.'*’
“Yes, but now Cardonville is the lion—the
people’s sensation; it is strange how crowds
will gather to gaze on a criminal—come, like
the rest we will go and see him.”
The speakers went into one of those sump
tuous fancy establishments, the resort for
idlers, inquisitives, professionals, and fast men,
where a crowd was pushing and crushing round
the table, a crowd of eager, curious faces
struggling for a view of one particular stand,
presided over by the individual enjoying the
name and fame of Cardonville.
“ Nothing remarkable about him, is there ?”
asked Ormsby of his companion.
There was nothing whatever save an ex
quisite neatness of dress, and an extraordinary
quantity of self possession, which enabled him
to bear any amount of staring jvith admirable
complacency.
People wondered at his audacity in revisiting
the scene of his former exploits, after the re
cent tragical occurrence in which public opin
ion had condemned him so bitterly ; perhaps
he trusted time had moderated their excite
ment, and first impressions eradicated, his
address and determination would be sufficient
to overcome the prejudice yet remaining. A
tragedy shocks and alarms the multitude for
the moment , but in the busy whirl of life events
crowd so upon one another that the tremor
of fear and horror is soon lost in new emotions.
It was but four months since this group of idle
lookers on had shuddered in dismay at the
sad tale of ruin and treachery spreading itself
as a warning to every fireside.
Cardonville, the wily, polished man of the
world, living on the folly and madness jof his
fellow men, feeding on the ignorance and
credulity of humanity with tact a demon
might have envied him, fastened himself upon'
a new victim and skilfully entangled him in
the mershes of his net. We have sympathy
for the young and unsuspecting, surrounded
by the toils of the vile and unprincipled, and
many would have cautioned the unfortunate
Belmonte, but youth is rash and unbelieving,
the glimmer of outward brilliancy so dazzled
him, the, internal corruption was hidden.
Belmonte was generous and high-spirited, fan
cied his/ counsellors fault-finding, and was
chafed at the restraint upon himseif they sug
gested ; the false and gleaming colors of vice
obscured the sombre traits of virtue, and
yielding to its fatal attraction, there followed
a giddy, wild career, in which honor and in
tegrity were forever sacrificed ere his eyes were
opened to the miserable trickery of his tempter.
In the terrible moment of reality, Belmont
vented his wrath publicly in aburst of indigna
tion, selecting terms at once unflattering and
dangerous to his antagonist’s safety and repu
tation, and enraged beyoml nwwiwo, C*r<lon
villo, rushing to a scheme for silencing this
alarming tirade, challenged him.
Belmonte’s youthful blood was fired to
frenzy at the remembrance of his own foolish
infatuation, and with his detestation of the be
traying villain, his passion outweighed all the
entreaties of friends—he accepted.
Bumor revelled in the private particulars of
the melancholy narrative, in depicting the des
pair of an only sister at the sad disoovey, her
prayers and tears that agitated but failed to
move him, in his stern yet rash resolve. And
the fatal morning came drear and gloomy like
his fate, and he must tear himself from cling
ing arms and anguished pleading, must. turn
from life —young, hopeful, active, winning
life—to death ; if his resolution wavered it
was imperceptible ; the coldness and hardness
assumed to deceive the searching eyes around
him was terrible; those who knew of the
strong attachment that had existed between
his sister and himself, wondered at his calm
ness during the last moments of parting, his
seeming disregard of her tearless woe—they
could not see his face as when she had fallen
back, happily relieved of her misery by in
sensibility, he bent over her pale features for a
last caress—-its expression of more than mor
tal agony, its yearning, wishful lingering love.
He turned away forever, and in a moment
more had set out for the scene of conflict.
•Cardonville was already there, looking the
picture of sardonic energy, his eyes glittering
like those of the snake charming a bird. As
it too frequently happens in instances of this
description, one of the parties interested had
no experience, while the other was an adept.
A successful duelist soon gains a reputation
his feats become the theme of public conver
sation, and men learn to look upon him with
a sort of secret fear almost amounting to ven
eration. Cardonville was celebrated for his
never failing aim; he had practised the art
snore duiing his leisure hours.
Belmonte had practised a little for sport; but
there is*a difference in shooting at birds or a
wooden target and a man's heart. To the in
experienced there is a certain sickness of soul
at taking a living mark ; he may be mentally
strong, but he is often physically weak ; for a
few moments Belmonte’s hands shook and he
gnawed bis lips nervously. Cardonville never
seemed cooler in his life, everything was in
his favor ; but men of his stamp are often the
veriest cowards at heart; perhaps it was in
cautious, reckless fury that actuated him, but
he fired a second before the fatal word. Bel
monte’s pistol went off in the air injuring no
one while he fell forward dull and heavily as
a block of stone. When they raised him there
was no life remaining ; his opponent’s bullet
had pierced his heart. During the brief com
motion ensuing this discovery, the latter sud
denly disappeared, and the other actors in the
tragedy were electrified by the shriek of Euge
nie Belmonte, as she fell senseless over the
d ad.
Through some agency she had learned the
place of meeting, and followed filled with a
vain hope, arriving too late.
Cardonville was found and arrested. The
cry of “foul” which had arisen from his ad
vo>™rj-’o second was repeated in ominous mur
murs by the multitude, and there seemed no
chance for his eluding justice, but the tumult
died away, time softened their first intense
horror, and Cardonville reanneared uphjirrnoit
among them. It was strange, and talked of
accordingly, but he had effectually managed
to elude the law. This drama made a lion of
him, and people, too passive to think of tak
ing vengeance in their own hands, went to see
if they could discover the stains of blood upon
his fingers—if murder looked from his eyes, or
the spectral form of his victim gleamed over
his shoulder with avenging frown and awful
menace, but he was cooler than they, sneering
in their very faces, and wearing no semblance
of guilt.
Finding himself unmolested, Cardonville
even enjoyed this scrutiny, and men. grew to
admire his boldness and suavity. Strange how
-Soon a successful villain a lierol TKoy
played and lost recklessly with him for the
mere eclat of having Bn.d such an opponent.
For weeks he enjoyed this prosperity, and
smiled in calm superiority upon the fawning
crowd. This triumph and ovation were suffi
cient to stifle all qualms of conscience, and he
might rest secure in the belief that he was safe
from human retribution.
Yet he, the sneering, contemptuous cyno
sure for the cringing multitude, who could
stare virtue out of countenance with his auda
cious villainy, quailed before one pair of eyes
that at length encountered his in that group.
We have premonitions at times arising from
the simplest incidents of some future fate, and
Cardonville, who had so boldly faced the dan
ger at the outset, now, when his path seemed
clear and open, actually sntvereu at this steady,
ptnetraiing gaze of a stranger, which chained
his as if by a magnetic spell. It annoyed him,
even dismayed him ; it seemed to read his in
most heart, its depravity and corruption. He
shifted his position, hoping to escape it, but it
followed every movement; and while previ
ously he might have fancied the scrutiny
merely accidental, he became convinced that
it was intentional. The sneer upon his lip
died away, and his hand grew unsteady; and,
at length, fanejing a stimulant might rid him
of this strange oppression, he arose and re
treated to obtain some wine, but those eyes
gleamed over his glass as he hold it to his lips,
and as he set it down the contents of another
were dashed into his face. The stranger held
an empty glass, and Cardonville frowned with
fury and shook his clenched hand.
“ Who are you that dares this ?” he hissed.
“ The friend of Henri Belmonte.”
The crowd set up a confused murmur, sway
ing violently to and fro as each member pushed
past the other in his endeavor to bo foremost
and nearest the chief characters in the scene.
Cardonville remembered how deceitful public
favor often proves, and had a vague fear his
reign was over—that those who had admired
and applauded his audacity might turn upon
him to crush him in a new impulse. His hand
went involuntarily to his breast, to the handle
of the pistol hidden there.
“ Put it away,”’ said the stranger, sneer
ingly. “ You shall have chance to use it, but
it shall be fairly this time.”
Many wondered at the recklessness with
which the speaker insulted this formidable foe,
if he knew of his skill and reputation. None
were there who had seen him before—he was
alike a stranger to all. Physically C.irdon
ville was a giant beside him, as if with one
blow he might eru«h the ..ulaixrlQr, fragile. U,-r.
ure. Possibly he might have scoffed at his di
minutive antagonist, but for the resolute face,
dark and bronzed as if through exposure, and
half hidden by heavy whiskers and mustaches.
Its keen eagle eye silenced him effectually.
“ Have I not a friend here who will volun
teer his services in my behalf ?” asked the for
mer, turning to the living wall surrounding
them. For a moment no one moved or re
sponded ; then there succeeded a sudden stir,
and a friend of the unfortunate Belmonte ad
vanced from the throng, exclaiming, as if fired
with sudden energy :
“If you fall, trust me, I will either follow
or avenge you.”
The stranger, after a brief conversation with
him in an undertone, turned to Cardonville,
saying:
“ I pledge you my word we shall be happy
to hear from you and tossing him a card,
hurriedly left the saloon with his companion.
Cardonville looked around on the curious
multitude like an enraged tiger for an instant,
and followed them. In an hour he had writ
ten and dispatched a challenge, which was ac
cepted. The remembrance of Ms recent nar
row escape had not destroyed his taste for this
summary method of revenge. He, however,
had private and cogent reasons for rejoicing
that his adversary was desirous of keeping the
fact of their meeting a secret from the public
car.
At the dawning of the appointed morn Car
donville was struck by the strauge similarity of
its aspect to that which had distinguished his
encounter with Belmonte—the same heaviness
of the atmosphere and dreariness of the sky.
He had thought himself imin .vable save to
anger, but this simple incident annoyed him.
An evil deed will soinetimes disturb and haunt
even an unscrupulous villain. Cardonville
had never felt so troubled throughout hit
wretched career .as now, at the remembrance
of his treachery upon this very field that had '
been selected as the spot for this second duel
—there was no blood upon his hands so red as
that of Bclmonto.
The hour was near—he paced his room hur
riedly for a brief interval, and then joined his
friend ; the journey to the field was performed
in comparative silence ; ho was sullen at his
own nervousness, and his companion found
him too unsociable to open a conversation.
The stranger, cold and silent, walked to and
fro in the chilling rain—Cardonville shudder
ed at his vague fancies—ho saw Henri Bel
monte. His foe kept up his grim walk with
out betraying any consciousness of his presence,
and Cardonville drew out a journal to occupy
the lingering time.
He was impatient that it should take so
long to arrange the preliminaries—the seconds
seemed hours in measuring the ground—he
longed for some active, personal excitement,
to rid him of his strange phantasies. AU was
oyer at length, and they were placed in posi
tion—he was visibly agitated, his face white
and ghastly to his lips ; his opponent smiled
and bowed sarcastically, and Cardonville with
a desperate effort, recovered himself.
Whatever might have been his will or intent,
a secret agency witheld his hand until the
utterance of the givensignal—both pistols were
simultaneously discharged. Cardonville sank
down with a curse upon his lips—the last words
he ever uttered. His adversary had also fal
len —his second rushed to support Mm, and in
raising his head to his knee, displaced the lux
uriant whiskers—they were false, and filled
with surprise he them. His amaze
ment was increased to dismay for through the
stain which had been usod to color the com
plexion, he recognised the face of Belmonte
—itwas a fancy like that of Cardonville—Bel
mente slept in his grave—it was that of
Eugenie.
Though mortally wounded she was not in
sensible and to his exclamation of horror and
bewilderment returned :
“It needed a woman’s hand to rid the
world of such a demon- -men made a hero of
him.’
Her bearer shuddered.
"This has been my one thought and hope,”
she continued weakly, her eyes glazed with
approaching death. “ I have made it my study
since the hour of his treachery—you seo to
what frenzy can nerve the weakest hand ”
“Aye,” he returned—“ another of the hor
rors of this human code of vengeance.”
The red cheeks, the white teeth,
and the blue eyes of a lovely girl, are as good a
flag as a Jroung soldier in the battle of life need
fight under.

DELUSIONS.
BT J. OOBDON EMMONS.
As the mist that clothes the mountain
Fades before the morning sun.
So our dearest hopes and visions
Vanish from us, one by one.
As we come in daily contact
With the trouble, toil and strife—
All the hard realities
Of this unromantic life 1
Earthly plans are but delusions—
Nothing lasting here we see;
Youth, pursue net fleeing phantoms—
Carnal joys are vanity.
Turn your thoughts to yon pure Heaven,
Where the star of glory beams ;
There is happiness and treasure,
Far beyond your wildest dreams I
War attatteta.
A Voyage with Rebels.—A corre
spondent of the Boston Commercial Bulletin,
who crossed the Atlantic in the Arabia in com
pr.nv with the rebel Maury and a dozen of his
fellow-traitors, gives the following interesting
account of the incidents of the voyage :
At Halifax there camo on board twelve or
thirteen rebels, or Southerners, if you please,
headed by that arch traitor and scoundrel, M.
F. Maury, formerly 0. lieutenant in the United
States Navy, and for whom so much was done
by our Government for many, many years', and
who was at one time one of the most conspic
uous officers in our navy—honored and feted,
alike by the Government and people, and who
has sb disgracefully and wickedly betrayed
both, and thus wantonly violated a solemn
oath, and is now bound to England to lend his
influence and aid in carrying out, in a so-called
neutral country, one of the most nefarious and
-rrtak«i irruilrß v£ wi.riare ever countenanced
before by a civilized people, viz., the fitting
out and equipment of gunboats, as they call
tlieto, or pirates, as I designate them, calcu
lated to prey upon our commerce, and not un
likely to attack some of our northern ports,
which may be now so easily seriously damaged,
not to say entirely destroyed.
I need hardly say in passing that the rebels
have kept pretty much by themselves since
they came on board, although they are quite
talkative with the'English, while they scarcely
deign to look nt four “Yankees” who are
among the cabin passengers, and who have
Men on the qui vice, and watching their move
ments all the while.
Besides Maury, whom they call “Commo
dore,” there is a Major Ferguson, who is rep
resented as being a disbursing agent or treas
urer of the so-called Confederacy, and who is
to pay the bills contracted for the ships, etc.
This man is accompanied by a young fellow,
who is to act as his secreiary. Then there is
an ugly, wicked, piratieal-lookinc , "«n
pierviog gray eyes, and long flowing brown
and gray beard, perhaps fifty years old, whom
they call “Captain.” His name is Campbell,
as I learn, a Scotchman by birth, but long a
resid< nt of the South, and I think by his ap
pearance he may have been a pilot at Charles
ton or Savannah. This person is to take com
mand of one of the gunboats ; and I pity any
unfortunate crew that may tall within his
heartless grasp, if his face is a fair index of
the soul within. I understand that he has
been successfully engaged of late in running
the blockade at the South.
With this party are two black-haired, dark
eyed, olive-complexioned men, whom I think
may be called French Creoles. One of these,
the elder, perhaps forty-five or fifty years of
age, is said to be Colonel LeMar, late of the
rebel army, and a prisoner in our hands at the
first battle of Bull Run. He has the air of a
person of education and refinement, and yet
has a most wicked glance of mingled scorn and
contempt, ready to meet tho Yankee whenever
he ventures near him. His companion’s name
I have not as yet been able to ascertain, but
he appears so like the one I have described
that I have thought he might be u brother.
What part these parties are to play I am una
ble to divine. I have an impression that they
are men of. fortune, largely interested in all
the Work of their associates, (and whom under
any ordinary circumstances they would scorn
to acknowledge as acquaintances, much more
associates,) and who visit England, where they
may have placed funds long ago, to render
txr-titxc unnuiy entme.
Besides these, there arc three or four other
unprincipled, seedy-looking individuals—one
quite a boy, who is represented as a midship
man in the “new” service, whoso name I
have been unable to learn, although I am told
that one of these persons, and one of the worst
appearing of the party, is a Charleston mer
chant, (I fear some of the leading merchants
of that city would hardly acknowledge the
fact,) and is on his way to England to buy
goods to smuggle into that city or vicinity.
Mr. Maury is accompanied by a son, a pleas
ant, smiling youth, perhaps twelve years of
age.
From all I can learn of those who have con
versed freely with this party, they look for
ward to a long war, and say (?) they arc quite
prepared for it. Maury says that he has
“small hope of the Democratic party, but if
this party is to triumph upon the idea of any
reconstruction of the Union, it will find itself
very much mistaken—the South will never,
never listen to any such thing. Consequently
they expect a long war, unless a separation en
tire and absolute is agreed upon.” This same
individual is said to have stated in conversa
tion on board this ship, that when he left
Richmond the available force of the South
then in the field was three hundred and forty
thousand men, as he knew by actual returns
to the government, and that Gen. Lee, when
he left that city to invade the North, had a
force of but fifty-six thousand men, all told.
He also stated that the army of the South had
always been very much overrated by the
North.
An Englishman on board, who sympathizes
strongly with the South, told me the other
day that the raid of Gen. Lee into Maryland
was made solely for e1.., purpose or possessing
Harper’s Ferry and the stores collected there,
and also for the purpose of securing very large
supplies of leather that had been collected for
them, and awaited their coming. He stated
that the trains occupied with the transporta
tion of the leather collected extended over a
length of forty miles of road.
Conversing about the probabilities of a war
between Great Britain and the United States,
Maury took especial pains to prove to the Eng
lishmen with whom he was conversing that, in
such.an event, nothing would be more easy for
England to do than to dispatch a fleet of gun
beats to the western lakes, via the Welland
Canal, and to destroy all the leading American
cities on the lake shores, and take possession
of a large portion of the West. In answer to
this, I will only state that in case of any such
untoward event, I would HU to see Maury
and his associates placed in charge of such aa
oazjwiiitou. iio would not be likely to ad
rance far into our territory before he would
find out the impracticability of this (to him)
magnificent undertaking.
It appears that this party of secessionists
embarked at Charleston on board of tho noto
rious rebel steamer Herald, which has made
several successful voyages in and out of that
port, and landed at Bermuda, from whish
place they took passage for Halifax by the
British mail steamer Delta, and then came on
board the Arabia.
They appear to be accompanied by two or
three Englishmen, who may be interested in
running the blockade at the South, and whose
interest is to keen on good terms with them.
One of the latter, by-the by, told me the other
day that three-fourths of all the goods and
material furnished the South were paid for, in
the first instance, by New York capital! I
trow not.
Pen and Ink Sketches of Prominent
Gksbbals. —A correspondent of the Cincinnat
Commercial wsites :
For several days the court-martial of Maj.-
Gen. Fitz John Porter, charged with misbe
havior during the military operations directed
by Gen. I’ope on the last days of August has
furnished a large share of the matter of gen
eral interest in this city. The court is held
in a parlor over a restaurant on Fourteenth
street, near Pennsylvania avenue, and is free
to the public. But few spectators are present .
The officers of the court, the witnesses, the
reporters, the accused and his counsel, with
occasionally half-a-dozen lookers-on, make up
the company.
In the centre of the room is a large table.
At the end of it sits Maj.-Gen. Hunter, Presi
dintof the Court ; at the other Joseph Holt,
of Kentucky, Judge Advocate. On Gen.
Hunter’s right are Maj.-Gen. Hitchcock and
Biigad’er-Generals Prentiss and Buford. On
Lib icit tiic xviag, urdrauul
and Slongh. Maj.-Gen. Porter sits on the
right of the Judge Advocate, a few feet from
the table, beside his counsel, Beverdy John
son. During Gen. Pope’s examination' he
was seated on the left of the Judge Advocate.
When engaged in courts martial, the offi
cers must dress in full uniform, and there is
consequently a brilliant display of buttons and
stars, and a handsome assortment of swords in
gold scabbards, and black hats plumed with
ostrich fca'hers. orranen iig the walls. About
the waist of each General composing the court
is wound his sash, the big tassels dangling by
their sides like great heads of ripe wheat.
Gen. Hunter resembles the rest of the
Hunters of Virginia, heavy in build and dark
in complexion ; and his face is rather grim in
repose, but; lights up in a most courteous and
kindly smile. When addressed by a friend on
some personal matter, the grim wrinkles
quickly give way. His thin hair is black as
ink. He is clean shaven with the exception of
his mustache, which sweeps around the comers
of his mooli rather jauntily. When reading
he wears glasses. At other times, while pre
siding in this court, he swings his spectacles
slowly in hii left hand and shuts his eyes and
mouth hardso as to pucker his chin and fore
head ; and s> quietly will fie sit that ho is
liable to the suspicion of ben. s sleenv. until
there is a point to decide, when ho opens his
eyes and is clear instantly as to the whole sub
ject. It thoie is any humor afloat he evident
ly has a great appreciation of it. He looks the
old soldier in every feature, and enjoys a good
joke as a veteran ought. He is a dreadful
Abolitioms.t, you know, and was almost, if not
quite, facetioi s in answering from South Caro
lina last summer a resolution of inquiry from
Congress concerning his attempted military or
ganization of contrabands. Herein he provoked
the well-nursed wrath of Mr. Wickliffe, M. C.
of Kentucky.
John J. Crittenden was presented to tho pre
siding General in the court room on Saturday,
and was received with a cordial politeness and
ease of manne-r which his distinguished and
distant' relative, Ex-Senator Hunter, of Vir
ginia, who was something of a sloven, might
have studied with advantage. He never im
pedes business by elongated observations. His
meaning is generally fully expressed in ten
words, uttered in a low conversational tone,
and a manner insinuating great deference, but
really somewhat imperious. He leans forward
over the table, his attitude that of strict atten
tion.
Major-General Hitchcock sits well back in
Ms chair, displaying to advantage the twin
stars upon his shoulders, and the groups of
buttons on his breast. He is a tail, elderly
gentleman. His hair consists exclusively of
puffs, resembling snowy ostrich down, above
his ears, an<l «■ delicate fringe of tho same
flossy article about tho back of his head. His
bald crown and fine face are of an uniform
rose color. His nose is slightly disposed to be
a beak, but it is not enoue-b
greseive, and is a very compromise be
tween the thin and gross specimens of that
important feature. His eye is keen and rest
less, and glances from beneath brows that are
jet black, and that mark his physiognomy as
by the caprice of an artist. He speaks more
frequently than any other member of tho
Court, and always somewhat positively, though
by no means abruptly, and insists upon the
most rigid observance of the regulations pro
vided for such courts by military law. The
counsel for the accused produced a dispatch,
relating to which ho asked General I’ope a
question, and handed it to him for inspection.
General Hitchcock quickly observed that there
was an informality about that proceeding—
there should not be any direct communication
between tho accused, or his counsel, and the
witness. Tho dispatch should have been
handed the Judge Advocate, and by him
handed to the witness. When the court de
liberates as to the propriety of a question, or
enters into any discussion developing a differ
ence of opinion, the room is cleared of all per
sons but the members of the court. This pro
cess is indulged in three or four times pe ses
sion, and almost invariably at the suggestion
of Major-General Hitchcock. But it would ba
unjust to Mm to form the impression that he
is a testy and fussy old gentleman. He is a
sharp looker-on, sees a point a few seconds
sooner than it makes its appearance to others,
and has convictions off-hand which he does
not care to conceal. It would be hard to find
a better living specimen of the true old gentle
man.
Judge Holt is a portly, almost stately, gen
tleman, and his citizen’s.clothes show him in
uuxzked contrast with the Generals by whom
he is surrounded. There arc a good many
Kentuckians, of the first class, who resemble
him. He is tall, hearty, handsome, inclined
to fill up his broadcloth completely. His face
hardly advertises that rich enthusiasm of na
ture which shines forth in his impassioned and
vivid eloquence. It is only redeemed rom
heaviness by the grand outline of the nose,
and the earnest light, at intervals breaking
into a sparkle, in the eye. His well-preserved
physical and moral condition—the agreeable
prosperity of the flesh and ease of conscience
arc discoverable in the goodly dimple on his
cheeks and chin —but the fervent heat of the
massive brain has streaked Ms dark hair hea
vily with gray.
Fitz John Porter is a young man in appear
ance, of slight but well-knit frame. His hair
is thin and light—his beard black and heavy,
and both are trimmed short, He is reserved
in manner, and deeply interested in the pro
gress of his case, watching every point intent
ly, and frequently making suggestions to, and
prompting, his counsel. He certainly does not
impress the beholder as a man of extraordina
ry parts, but there are a great many who paw.
as unusual individuals who do not do that.
His eye does not seek the faces of the men
about him. Perhaps ho is too much occupied
looting at people. But when you notice
his eye it will claim a second observation. It
is large and black, and while it is not flashing
or piercing, there is a steady sombre light in it,
like that of a live anthracite coal, and possibly,
a little dangerous in meaning.
Gen. Pope, during his examination, which
has lasted three days, has occupied a rocking
chair, leaning backwards, and when not in the
act of answering a question,, rocking himself
"assutiously. He is a singularly round and
heavy little man. His face is round—round as
an apple and surrounded by a heavy growth
of beard and hair; Ms head is round—his
body is round. His voice is a tolerable ,-n
--with a streak of harshness in it, over which
his words, uttered pleasantly enough, have to
be rasped as they go. His smile commences
pleasantly, but subsides into a sneer, or rath
er, perhaps, into quick indifference. His whole
appearance would indicate that he is on good
terms with self, morally and physically, and
that if he should do any thing wrong, he would
not be unlikely to suspect some one else was
chiefly to blame. He talks rapidly, and is ra
ther fond of it, as an exercise or diversion. He
uses language with good discrimination of
words. His cross-examination has been a very
severe ordeal, and he has stood fire well. After
three months have elapsed, he is examined mi
nutely as to the battles of the ‘29th and 30th
of August, and tho movements immediately
preceding them. He was asked where his
troops were on certain days and at certain
hours; what was the condition of the roods;
what the position of the enemy ; at what hours
he cent orders ; at what time he thought his
generals should have received Ms orders; when
they were ordered to make certain movements,
and why and how long they, were about it;
what prevented this and that from being done;
where was he at this and that time, and what
doing. His answers were given with a readi
ness, accuracy and general consistency, and a
manliness, too, that surprised those who ex
pected to see him ruined on cions-cxamination
by the adroit, able anil unrelenting counsel of
the accused. It is cnly fair to say of General
Pope, that the clear understanding of whit he
was about in the battles that ended Ms career
r.s commander of the Army of Virginia., which
l.e has somewhat unexpectedly displayed, his,
in a considerable degree, tempered the unchar
itable feeling toward Mm entertained in this
quarter.
Rebel Wit.—One of our Flushing
boys, on the Rappahannock, writes home
sonic of Ms adventuies while on picket duty.
Among, other things he says tlib rebel pickets
frequently interchange words upon the banks
of fhestream. Our Flushing boy, with others,
were recently picketing a bridge, which had
been destroyed. He says, while guarding one
end of the bridge, the rebel pickets came on
the other end and sat down, while between'the
two parties there was a chasm of some forty or
fifty feet. One of the rebels exclaimed :
“Hello, Yank.”
“ Hello, Sccesh.”
“ When are you coming to Richmond ?”
“ We'll be along pretty soon ”
“ Well, remember one thing—you will have
to come up a Longstreet, a pretty big I [ill, and
finally be obliged to climb over 1 a Stonewall. ’ ’

SONNETS.
BY WILLtUI 3. M’CXUBE.
JOY.
The early moon flushed earth and sky,
And tree and mountain wore its shoen ;
Dim night had passed dark shadowed by,
And Joy instilled the simple soeue.
The birds first thrilled the sluuib'ring wild.
With matin hymns from nature's lyre,
And charmed the little mystic child,
With joys that swelled, as sang the choir!
Joy visited the wildwood home.
Where honest toil had spread the board.
But shunned wealth’s glitter, and the dome
Of fashion’s proud and pompous horde.
From earth it will forever flee,
To dwell in Heaven eternally.
AMBITION.
Ambition woke, and o’er his head
There glittered high a star ;
“ I’ll to that fight,” Ambition said,
“ Though blood and deluge bar I ”
Ho flew to gain the dazzling world,
That shone in air afar ;
• But fitful winds, him backward hurled,
And fought with force of war.
He rose, all dangers downward trod,
And boldly reached the star;
But ah 1 it seemed a diresome clod,
As earth’s attainments are I
A -’rffVo fl'fly!” Ambitiou said.
HUMILITY.
A virgin humbly knelt,
In attitude most meek;
And uncomplaining, felt
The wrongs she would not apeak.
Men’s rage and earthly scorn.
Her purity did chide.
And o’er tho world, was borne
A deep rebuke to pride.
Full kindly, she forgave
The agents of her woe,
And all that would deprave
Shrunk back, a weakened foe.
Humility I all hearts imbue—
Glory ct‘ Virtue’s retinue!
PRIDE.
In flashy courts, and realms of ease,
Pride wields a wide and recreant sway ;
And black’ning life, by high degrees,
Forgets that men are common clay.
The palace with its turret-walls,
Disdains the cottage in the glen ;
The prince in Pride’s fell clutches falls,
And flings contempt at humbler men.
Pride stalks where gutters riche’ssgloss
In heartleesness and discontent;
Nor heeds the teachings of the cross.
With Pride—condemning maxims blent,
’Twill to the Pit, from whence ’twas given,
It ne’er can join the bliss of Heaven I ,
GOODNATURE.
If there be one thing for which a man should
be moie grateful than another, it is the pos
session of good nature. Ido not consider him
good tempered who has no temper at all. A
man ought to have spirit, strong, earnest, and
capable of great indignation. We like to hear
a man thunder once in a while, if it is genuine,
and in the right way for a right man. When
a noble fellow is brought into contact with
mean and little ways, and is tempted by un
scrupulous natures to do unworthy things ; or
when a great and generous heart perceives the
wrong done by lordly strength to shrinking,
unprotected weakness ; or where a man sees
the foul mischiefs that sometimes rise and
cover the public welfare like a thick cloud of
poisonous vapors—we like to hear a man ex
press himself with outburst and glorious
anger. 11 makes us feel safer to know that
there are such men. We respect human nature
all the more to know that it is capable of such
feelings
But.just these men arc best capable of good
nature. These are the men upon whom a
swettjusticc in common things, and a for
bearance toward men in all the details of life,
and a placable, patient and cheerful mind, sit
with peculiar grace.
Some men are much helped to do this by a
kind of bravery born with them. Some men
are good natured because they are benevolent,
and always feel in a sunny mood ; some, be
cause they have such vigor and robust health
that care flies off from them, and they really
cannot feel nettled and worried; some, because
a sense of character keeps them from all things
unbecoming manliness ; and some, from an
overflow of what may be called in part animal
spirit, and in part, also, hopeful and cheerful
dispositions. But whatever be the cause or
reason, is there anything else that sa much
blesses a man in human life as this voluntary
or involuntary good nature ? Is there anything
else that converts all things so much into en
joyment to him ? And then what a glow an-1
light he carries with him to others ! Some
men come upon you like a cloud passing over
juu'l'eel-cold and chilly while they are about,
and need an extra handful of coal on the fire
whenever they’ tarry long.
Others rise upon you like daylight. How
many times does a cheerful and hopeful phy
sician cure his patient by’ what he carries in
his face, more than by what he has in his med
ical case 1 How often docs the coming of a
happy hearted friend lift yon up out of a deep
despondency, and before you are aware, in
spire you with hope and cheer. What, a gift
it is to make all men better and hippier with
ost knowing it! We don’t suppose that flow
ers know how sweet they are are. We have
watched them. But as fur as we can find on;
their thoughts, flowers are just as modest as
they are beant-w-a. ‘
These roses before me, salfataine, lamarque,
and saffrano, with their geranium leaves (rose)
and carnations and abutilon, have made me
happy for a day, Yet they stand huddled to
gether in my pitch r without seeming to know
my thoughts of them, or the gracious work
which they are doing ! And how much more
is it to have a disposition that carries with it,
involuntarily, sweetness, calmness, courage,
hope, and happiness, to all who are such ? Yet
this is the portion of good nature in a real,
large-minded, strong-natured man 1 TVhen it
has made him happy it has scarcely begun its
office!
Tn this world, where there is so much real
sorrow, anti so much unnecessary grief of fret
and worry ; where burdens are so heavy, and
the way so long ; where.men stumble in rough
paths, and so many push them down rather
than help them up : where tears are as common
as smiles, and hearts ache so easily, but are
poorly fed on higher joys, how grateful ought
we to be that God sends along, here and there,
a natural heart-singer:—a man whose nature is
large and luminous, and who, by his very car
riage ar d sp< ntmeous actions, calms, cheers,
and helps his fellows. God bless the good
natured, for they bless everybody else!—

Dinner to Gen. McClellan.— Hon.
S. S. CoX, Representative from Ohio, yester
day gave a dinner at Willard's to Gen. Mc-
Clellan and a delegation of gentlemen who are
now hero from Kentucky. In the course of
the sitting the memory of the late Gen. James
Jackson, of Kentucky, was toasted, which was
responded to by Gen. J.’s successor in Con
gress, Hen. Mr. Yeatnan, who, in turn, toast
ed Gen. McClellan. In response, Gen. Mc-
Clellan made a few remarks, ending with a
sentiment highly complimentary, and wishing
all success to Gen. Burnside and the Army of
the Potomac.— Star, Bee. 12.
‘ ANONYMA’S” HOUSE DESCRIBED.
We find in an English journal the following
description of the apartments occupied by the
woman known in English high life as “ Ano
nyma,” during her short and brilliant career
in London It is said that the sale of tho fur
niture, which followed on her elopement with
a married man of high rank, was attended by
many noble ladies and others, curious to pry
into the mysteries of the wanton life of this
creature, and regardless of decorum, so that
their curiosity might be satisfied. Tho Eng
lish journalist says:
We have seen a house, by no means palatial
in size, but in its fittings Sybaritic almost be
yond belief. Its modest dimensions may be
appreciated when we say that the first floor
consists only of a drawing-room nineteen feet
by thirteen, and a boudoir six feet by five ; in
fact, apart from the accommodation for ser
vants, the house only contains a dining, draw
ing and bed-room, with one other mysterious
apartment, of which we shall speak anon. But
the paucity of space is made up for by the
glow of brilliance’. Tfio stone staircase which
faces you as you enter has gilt metal balustrades,
and a hand-rail stuffed and covered in crimson
velvet. Tho dining-room is resplendent with
hangings of white and crimson satin, decked
with costly mirrors and candelabra, and lamps
on ormolu pillars five feet high, and is furnish
ed with “indulgent chairs’’—whatever they
may be—and other chairs for which Grom well
has been made to stand sponsor, no doubt, oil
account of the toughness of their spiral oaken
legs, and the knobbiness of the brass-headed
nails, which make indentations in the sitter's
back. Pass upward to tho drawing-room, and
you may almost fancy that you are gazing upon
one of . William Beverley’s transformation
scenes. The walls are in panels of cerise silk,
bordered by gilt mouldings on a white painted
ground, and the furniture is so glowing with
gilding that it looks as if it were suffering
from a virulent attack of burnished jaundice.
Wood, even of the choicest growths, is utterly
tabooed ; tables, chairs —indulgent and other
wise—sofas, jardinieres, are all glittering with
gold, framing the cerise silk garniture, while
curtains of the same material and hue depend
from a coi nice, which a competent authority,
byway of setting all uneasy doubts at rest, de
clares to be of a chaste design. Among many
exotic groups of Dresden porcelain are two
humble earthenware cows, evidence of native
bucolic tout.-, and the china time-pieco has a
figure of music, which observers may, accord
ing to their inclination, take as evidence that
the proprietor admired either Handel or the
Ethiopian serenaders. Most of the China or
naments, however, are damaged, which may
be imputed at will to a careless household or to
a rackety tenant.
The bedroom is such as the most ecstatic of
stage decorators can scarcely have dreamed of
to bio wildest visions. It is a mass of huge
looking glasses and blue silk, and white and
gold, so overpowering in its richness, that the
eye reste refreshed upon so much as a modest
towel—a cool oasis in the midst of the Sahara
of luxurious profusion. Tho bed is one in
which no man of tender conscience could ever
sleep a wink, through sheer remorse at its
astounding cest. To say that it is all gold,
silk, damask, quiltings, puckers and feetoons,
is to convey but a faint idea of its splendor.
The very counterpaiue is of quilted blue silk ;
the tickling of the mattrasses is bordered with
fringes of swan’s down ; the dressing stool on
which the happy tenant of this epicurean bow
er is to sit before the toilet-glass, has cushons
of blue silk on a gilt pillar and claw, and is
daintily covered with an embroidered net
case, trimmed with blue silk ribbon. The
waidrobe is white and gold, with tall mirrors
n the panelled doors; the toilet table is deftly
tettooned with drapery of blue silk and em
bi oidered net, trimmed with lace and fluted
ribbon, which also surrounds the gilt-framed
dressing-glass, the back of which is a delicate
silken panel. Every table is in a richly gilt
from-, with legs to match, and its top is cover
ed with silk or with embossed velvet. Con
venient contrivances, in which most people are
content to find the useful, and never dream of
locking for the ornamental, arc converted by
stuffing and silk easing and embroidery into
positive ornaments to the most elegant
boudoir; and though there is a figure of Time
on the Dresden timepiece which might carry
the mind out of this elyeium of down and
damask, its teachings are antidoted by the
crowd of surrounding Cupids.
After viewing all these wonders wc natural
ly ask who can have been the luxurious owner ?
On this interesting point the catalogue—for
we grieve to sav this paradise has been broken
up by the auctioneer’s hammer—conveys no
nformation whatever. It states that the abode
is admirably suited to a bachelor of fashion.but
whether it has been hitherto occupied by a
bachelor of fashion, or by a spinister in fashion
it docs not condescend to tell us. The tenant
was evidently not literary, for the library con
sists for the most part of add volumes of various
works, with an atlas, a dictionary, and a few
old school books : but fashionable proclivities
are indicated by the presence of a set of the
“ Royal Blue Book” from 1858 to 1862, a
“ Dod’s Peerage,” and a copy of “Who’s
Who?” and there is, moreover Dunbar on
Park Riding,” a work of the merits of which
we are ignorant, but the title of which sounds
aristocratic.
There has been roystering in this small sym
posium—at least, we should judge so from
the suspicious fact that the one frosted ice
pail is broken ; and singular speculations may
be provoked by the fact that side by side with
several decanters we find only one finger glass,
and even that is stigmatized as “faulty,”
Whoever may have been the lord of this
domain, ho seems to have enjoyed it for a very
short time, since it is announced that all the
furniture was supplied within the last six
months.
REVENUE DECISIONS,
Tim Commissioner of Internal Revenue has
decided that any stamp appropriated to denote
the duty charged on any particular instru
ment, and bearing the name of such instru
ment on the face thereof, which may have
been used or which shall hereafter be used for
tienoting any other duty of the same amount,
shall be deemed and taken to be good and
sliaif not apply’ to any, stamp appropriated to
denote tho duty charged on proprietary arti
cles.
All instruments, documents and papers sub
ject to duty, used by the officers of the United
States Government, -where the United States
would be chargeable with the duty or stamp
thereon ; and all instruments, documents and
papers of the executive department of the
several States subject to duty, where any State
would be chargeable with the duty and stamp
thereon ; and also all instruments, documents
and papers relative to the procurement of
bounty land and other bounties, pensions and
oiders of pay, by or for officers, soldiers and
seamen, or their legal representatives, who
have been or may be in the service of the Uni
ted States, are exempt from duty.
All goods, wares and merchandise, or arti
cles produced or made and finished ready for
sale and removed for consumption prior to the
Ist <laj’ of September, 1862, whether actually
removed or not from the place of manufacture,
shall be and hereby are exempt from duty,
upon proof being made to the satisfaction of
the Assessor of the district, who shall hear and
determine the same that they were so made
and finished, ready for sale and removal for
consumption ; and where any duties shall have
been assessed and collected upon such goods,
wares and merchandise, or articles so made and
finished as aforesaid, the same shall be and
hereby are remitted, and, if actually collected,
refunded by the Commissioner of Internal Rev
enue, under such regulations os he may pre
scribe.
■ Hotels, inns or taverns and eating houses,
having token out license provided- therefore,
shall not bo required to pay any other license
for the sale of any article customarily fur
nhhedby hotels, inns or taverns and eating
houses, and not prohibited by the laws of any
State or Territory, where the same may be lo
cated, in violation thereof.
Cooking Apples.— One of the most
notable housewives and best cooks in the State
has a new way of cooking apples—at least it
was new to me, and will, no doubt, be new to
many others. She pares the apples and quar
ters them, placing them in a tin plate with the
core side up ; if dried apples, a little water is
added ; they are then set in the oven, which is
always hot at meal time, and roasted. When
done, they are slid on a common plate and
sprinkled with sugar, to be eaten warm', with
bread and butter and cakes. It would require
canned fruit of extra flavor to tempt ma from
the apple dish, if thus prepared. Strawberries
or half-ripe peaches are not to be talked of the
same day.— Rural American.
Durability of Posts.— A correspond
ent of the 2Vew> England Farmer reports an ex
periment on the durability of posts, which we
re-arrange and condense. The timber used
was “ Yellow oak it was cut in winter, and
each Jog was large enough to split into two
bar-pbsts, which were set the following spring :
g&First Pair —Butt end down, one charred.
Both rotted off the third year ; the upper ends
were then put into the ground, and they lasted
seven years more.
Second Pair —Butt end down, one salted by
boiing and plugging. Salted post gave out
the second year ; the unsalted the fourth year.
The ends were then reversed, and lasted about
eight years longer.
Third Pair—One butt down, the other butt
up. The butt rotted off the third year, the
other the fourth. Tho ends were reversed, and
the new butt rotted one year before the' other,
although the latter was set one year sooner.
Fourth Pair—Small ends down, one salted.
Both rotted off the fourth year; and, being re
versed, lasted four years more.
It will be seen that the charring did no
good and sailing a green post is useless if not
injurious. All experiments indicate decidedly
sot reversed last longest; and it ap
pears that seasoned posts last longer than
green—the seasoned small ends in the first ex
periment lasting about twice as long as the
green small ends in the fourth.
New Material for Belting, for
Shoes, &c A method has been devised for
manufacturing a new article to be used for
bolting, the uppers of shoes, and various other
purposes for which pure leather has been
hitherto employed. The inventor first takes
old boots and shoes, belts, &c., cuts them in
small pieces, Washes them thoroughly in
water, and reduces them to a soft, pulpy con
dition by soaking. He then rolls them out.
between rollers, dries and mixes them with
minute quantities of hemp or flax fibre, and
unites them intimately together with a strong
solution cf gluo or erutta percha. They are
then rolled out into bunds for belts, or pressed
into molds for the upper of shoes, &c.
—rt—“
Headache. —An exchange says, to
get rid of headache, “ take a small quantity of
spirituous liquor in the hollow of the hand,
and snuff it up the nostrils repeatedly. It
never fails to produce an almost instantaneous
cure.”
The defect in this remedy is, that those most
frequently afflicted with the headache would
not be able to get the “ spirituous liquor” as
high up as the nostrils.
