TH E CONTRAS T.
A PICTURE FROM REAL LIFE.
By Francis B. Murtha.
The Palace was filled with a bevy of beaut v.
And all seemed so joyful and wild with delight,
Not a cloud lingered there, not a shadow nor care,
But all was so pleasant, so happy and bright
Fine liveries came with opulence laden,
And silks rustled by full 01 arrogant pride,
Wealth, beauty and lashion,(assumption combined,
Ana all the great pomp to riches allied.
In amazement, and wonder a self-famished form
Stood trembling and shy, as though ’twere a sin,
And strangely contrasted her poor tattered figure,
Her desolate home with the gay scene within;
The flashes of wit the dance ana the song,
The bright sparkling eyes and the clear merry shout,
What cared they for want, for poverty, toil,
ur ihe suiterings of others in the world without.
In pity she begged but a penny or two,
And pray’d, and importun’d and braved o’er again,
But a H’uvvn of contempt was the answer she got,
More bitter by far than hunger’s great pain.
Crushed, broken in spirit, iu sorrow bowed down,
UnaMe to stand misfortune’s huge wave,
From the cold, heartless world she turned with a sigh,
And sought peace and rest in a suicide’s grave.

THE RED DEVILS.
• MY ABGVJSTXiS COMSTOCK..
UR OF COMPANY A, DUKYEA’S ZOUAVES.
THE SUICIDE.
The sun crawled to the eastern horizon like
a red lobster, but was soon “ gobbled up” by
a mass of hungry clouds. This spectacle
sharpened my appetite so that I was enabled
to partake of my morning ration of ‘ ‘ hard
tack” and coffee with patriotic cheerfulness.
■While thus occupied in benefitting “Uncle
Sam,” I heard footsteps approaching, and the
next moment had the pleasure of grasping the
hand of Sergeant B , a much esteemed
friend belonging to the —th Regulars. His
whole face was lighted with an expression of
the deepest and most heartfelt joy. His cheeks
glowed and his eyes sparkled like stars.
“Congratulate me!” he exclaimed, “My
time was up last night, and I have just re
ceived my discharge papers. I shall leave for
home to-morrow morning.”
Then he seated himself by my side and
spoke of the happiness which his mother and
all his friends would experience upon behold
ing him again.
A spirit of adventure had led him away from
his native village six years previous to the
time of which I write. One year had been
passed at sea and the remaining five in the re
giment of Regulars to which he belonged.
During his absence he had continued to corres
pond with his mother, and also with a certain
young lady by the name of Alice Gray.
Of the latter he had often spoken to me in
the glowing terms of a lover, and had inform
ed me that he intended to mate her his wife
when he should return to his native village.
His conversation now turned upon this subject,
and as he was very demonstrative I could not
help sympathising with his happiness.
While he was talking, however, I noticed a
tall daik-browed man, clad in the same uni
form as that worn by my friend, standing a
few yards from the spot we occupied. With bis
head bowed upon his breast, and his eyes fixed
upon the ground, he was listening moodily to
the animated expressions of the sergeant, and
every time the name of Alice was mentioned I
could perceive that he started aud bit his lips.
“ Who is that?” I inquired, in a low tone,
of my companion.
. He looked in the direction of my glance, and
replied that it was Tom C , a friend,
who belonged to the same company that he
/ did, and, when at home, lived in the same
village. I had often heard my friend speak of
this man as being very gloomy and morose,
and one who was generally disliked in the re
giment, although he was an excellent soldier.
The low, scowling forehead, small, glitter
ing eyes, and heavy lips, wore an expression
which was not calculated to win either friend
ship or confidence. But I had so often been
deceived by appearances, that I resolved upon
a closer acquaintance ; and, in compliance
with my request, the sergeant introduced us.
Tom C had but little to say. He was
absent, and seemed continually brooding upon
some subject of a disagreeable nature. Once I
detected his eye, when he thought himself un
observed, fixed upon the face of the sergeant,
with a glance which certainly had nothing
friendly in its expression.
That look haunted me long after the two
soldiers had taken their departure ; and when
night came, and I rolled myself in my blan
ket, I felt strangely restless every time I
thought of my friend, and for many hours was
unable to sleep. When I did at last close my
eyes, my slumber was troubled with disagree
able dreams. I felt glad when I awoke the
next morning, and heard the drums beating
the reveille in the various camps around Fal
mouth.
A few hours afterward, I stood by the cook's
fire cleaning my piece, but had not been long
engaged in the occupation when I heard the
sharp report of a rifle ringing out suddenly
upon the air. The noise seemed to proceed
from a small thicket about three hundred
yards from the .camp.
Not ten minutes had passed after I heard
the report when I saw one of our Zouaves rush
from the thicket, and then stop while he beck
oned to the men about the camp.
“ Some soldier has just committed suicide,”
he shouted, as we approached him. “You
can see him lying here, in the woods.”
He led the way, and we followed him.
A few steps carried us to the spot occupied
by the corpse. The dead man lay at the foot
of a large pine, with his face to the ground.
His shattered temple, and the back and top of
his head clotted with thick blood, presented a
ghastly and sickening spectacle. A rifle, with
the Stock resting near his foot, a string fast
ened to the trigger, and the barrel still grasped
by the stiffened fingers of one of his hands,
showed the manner iu which he had accom
plished the fatal work. He had evidently
held the piece in an upright position, then in
clined his temple to the muzzle and pulled the
string, thus bringing the hammer down upon
the cap and causing the musket to go off and
lodge its contents in his brain.
One of the Zouaves now stooped over the
prostrate form and turned up the face.
Then an involuntary exclamation burst
from my lips, while the blood rushed in a
tumult to my heart. That countenance,
white, rigid and partially disfigured by dirt
and blood, yet retained enough of its natural
ness to enable me to recognize it at once as
that of my friend Sergeant B ,of the Regu-
lar’s. But, good heavens! what could have
’been his motive for the commission of this act ?
—of tearing asunder the chords of a life about
to be made happy with the light of home—
with his mother’s smile of welcome and the
form of his golden-haired Alice, the girl of his
boyish dreams, the bright star that had
cheered him through all the dangers and
hardships of his wild wanderings ?
Then his clear ringing laugh, the dark eyes
brightening with pleasure, and the cliepk
glowing with happv anticipation, rushed upon
my mind as I reflected upon our last meeting.
Had all this been feigned ? Was the spirit
moaning and writhing like a storm-tossed
wave, while the laugh sounded outwardly and
the face was bathed in sunshine ? I could not
believe it. He had good reason to feel happy,
and the exhibition of this happiness was too
natural to have been assumed. Beside, I be
lieved I had known my friend’s character well
enough to feel certain that no sorrow, how
powerful soever it might have been, could
have darkened his spirit sufficiently to prompt
him to a commsssion of a crime of this nature.
Nevertheless, here was his corpse before me,
* ghastly and horrible—the corpse of a suicide,
as the rifle with its ingenious contrivance of
the string proclaimed—proclaiming, also, that
the act had been performed in a manner that
was cool, methodical and calculating.
Among the Regulars the news of the affair
fell with the suddenness of a thunderbolt, and
created great excitement. The Sergeant had
been a favorite with both officers and men,
and his strange fate threw a gloom upon the
hearts of all. He had taken his leave of them
that morning, seemingly in high spirits, and
they "were at a loss to conceive the motive
which had prompted him to thus put an end
to.his'existence.
He was buried that afternoon, and I was one
Of .those who attended the funeral.
His friend Tom C- , together with a
couple of comrades, had been detailed to dig
the grave; and as my eye fell upon the former,
I perceived that his face expressed more emo
tion than I could have given him the credit of
possessing.
“ I will write to his friends,” he said, turn
ing to me, “ and informthem of the affair.”
A few weeks afterward I read in one of the
weekly journals an account of the sudden
death of the mother of Sergeant B . g fie
had died three days after she received ttie news
of her son's melancholy fate. Subsequently I
learned from another source that Alice Gray
had been so affected by the sudden tidings of
her lover’s death as to be thrown into a brain,
fever, from which she had finally recovered,
with the loss of her reason, and was now little
better than a raving maniac.
But my story does not end here ; for I have
yet to relate the dark revelation that was
breathed in my ear amid the thunder of artil
lery. the howling of solid shot and shell, and
the screaming of bullets, at the battle of Chan
celloisville. We had halted in a field and
formed line of battle, when I found myself
standing near the form of one of the Regulars,
who lay upon the ground writhing and moan
ing in the agonies of death. I recognized the
face at once as that of Tom C , and stoop-
ing down, I dislodged my canteen from my
shoulders and poured water into his gasping
throat. A bullet had pierced his side, and he
was dying fast, but the water revived him a
little, and he seemed to recognize me.
“ My time has come,” he gasped out, clutch
ing my arm and rolling his eyes— “ my time
has come : but, oh, God! I cannot die with
this terrible secret upon my soul. Listen,”
he added, with a wild light gleaming in his
eyes, “ listen to me.” He paused a moment,
and then continued : “You were the friend of
Sergeant B , and he thought I was his
friend also. But no, I secretly loathed and
hated him from the moment that Alice Gray
rejected me for his sake, and I determined that
he should never have the happiness of making
her his wife.
“Well, his time expired. He was going
home to claim this girl for his bride. Happy
in the thought, he took leave of us in the
morning, which I don’t think you will ever
forget? Unperceived by any person, I snatched
up my rifle and followed him with murder
written in my heart and upon my brain. I
had planned everything beforehand—fastened
a string .to my rifle, and resolved to arrange
matter’s so that after the deed was committed,
the deceased would have the appearance of
having fallen by his own hands. Cautiously I
him until he entered the thicket
through which I knew he would have to pass.
Then with three bounds I cleared the space
between us, and leveled my rifle upon his tem
ple. He turned upon hearing the noise; but
ere he could utter a word, I pulled the trigger,
and the bullet entered his brain. He dropped
to the earth like a log ; and then quickly stoop
ing. I placed the rifle by his side, clasped one
of his hands about the barrel, aud picking up
his own piece, which in every respect, resem
bled mine. I flew from the spot, and reached
our camp by a circuitous route. Now, then,
I ”
But here the voice of the dying man failed
him. The death-rattle sounded in his throat,
and the next moment the rolling eyes became
glazed and still.

/ FOR THE HAIR I
KENDALL’S AMBOLINE is composed of stimulating
extracts from Flowers, Roots and Herbs—no minerals, or
any injurious properties whatever entering into its com
position. It is entirely different from any article ever
offered to the public, and the proprietors are prepared to
prove, by incontrovertible testimony of well-known per
sons here in our city and elsewhere, that it will accom
plish everything claimed for it.
The proprietors are aware of how much prejudice they
have got to contend with, owing to the public having
been so often humbugged by charlatans, offering their
injurious compounds, bolstered up by bogus certificates
claiming for their trash virtues which no person with any
ordinary degree of common sense could for a moment
believe. But the days of such imposters are numbered,
and the public have learned to distinguish between the
true and the false.
We offer a few genuine certificates, emanating from
sources too well known to admit of question.
From the Boston Saturday Evening Gazette.
“ Kendall’s Amboline.—lt is an article singularly well
adapted for the purpose specified, and has won for itself
wherever used, the warmest encomiums.
“ As is claimed for it, it invigorates, nourishes, and em
bellishes the hair, and in cases of capillary difficulties and
losses, there is nothing that can be applied with more sat
isfactory results than the AMBOLINE. The testimony of
those deprived of hair, who, through it, have been benefit
ted, should be weighed. There are many cases where
baldness has prevailed for years, and this simple remedy
has induced a fine growth of hair.”
[From the Home Journal,]
Many are only acquainted with this preparation through
ihe aarcrti-m s cobm™ of .«, A Some would
like to test it, but fear it might contain injurious • sub
stances. These fears may at once be removed by the
perusal of Dr. Chilton’s certificate, which asserts “that the
Amboline is free from metallic and mineral substances,
and the elements of its composition can do the head no
injury.” *
Our own experience with the Amboline is that it
cleanses the scalp, softens, embellishes and beautifies the
hair and makes altogether a very pleasant dressing for the
head. Besides these qualities, it prevents hair from fall
ing out ordurning prematurely gray, causes hair to grow
on bald heads, cures diseases of the scalp and prevents
nervous headaches.
Being assured that it contains no mineral compounds,
is extracted from Roots and Herqs, and knowing that by
its use the dressing ofthe hair is assisted and its appear
ance improved, we hesitate not to advise our readers to
give the Amboline a trial.
From the “ New York Programme.”
“ Kendall’s Amboline.”—This is a most admirable pre
paration for the hair; composed of perfectly harmless in
’ gredients, and possessing in an eminent degree, those pe
culiar qualities by which the growth of the hair is promo
ted and its beauty increased. It is too often the case, that
compounds styled “ Hair Restoratives” are not only not
beneficial, but actually injurious; and we therefore do not
recommend any of them, unless perfectly satisfied that
they are really meritorious. We have used the Amboline
and experienced its beneficial effects, therefore, can con
fidently commend its use to those who have lost, or are
losing their hair, for it will not only prevent it from fall
ing out, but promote a new and healthy growth. As a
dressing for the hair it is unsurpassed, and it will always
prove beneficial when the scalp requires the application
of a gentle stimulant As it is a compound from Flowers,
Roots and Herbs only, no injury can icsult from its use
It is put up in larger quantity than any similar article in
the market
We beg to offer extracts from a few certificates, the orig
inals of which may be seen at our office :
Dr. James R. Chilton, the eminent chemist, after analy
sis, says: “Kendall’s Amboline contains no mineral ©r
metalic substances, and its use would prove very benefi
cial when the scalp requires a good stimulant applica
tion.”
Warren Ward, Esq., No 277 Canal street, the largest
. enameled furniture dealer in the United States, says :
“I have never had anything whjch so perfectly answers
the purpose of a hair dressing.”
Prof. John Senia, No. 35 King street, says :
“After being bald for over seven years, your Amboline
has covered the entire scalp with new hair.”
Assistant Assessor's Office, No. 534 Broadway )
New York, Aug. 17, 1863). )
Since 18591 have been troubled, and at times very much
afflicted, with a sore scalp, and sometimes broken out with
a disagreeable eruption. Gradually my hair began to
decay and fall out, till it seemed certain I should be bald.
Upon your own recommendation a few months since I
applied some of your Amboline, and found, after using it
a few weeks, that it was surely effecting a cure. Now my
head is entirely well and the bare spots wholly covered
with hair.
I deem it due to a valuable medicine to make this pub
lic declaration. James Henry Taylor.
fcWe take pleasure in adding our testimony in favor of
KENDALL'S AMBOLINE, having used it and become
convinced that it is an invaluable article for promoting
tlie growth of the hair :
