to his friend, 44 wont I make a slaughter

It any ot them should so entitle
you," replied his Inend .dryly, V she
will be emphatically Miss-taken." 1 ;
..A "few. days found our sapient hero
snugly domiciled, in a comfortable tav
ern, in one of the mountain districts of
the brave old Keystone Commonwealth;
and blood, as he; fancied himself, he
found very pleasant companionshin in
the jovial son of his chatty, landlord,
who became his guide and companion
in all his excursions. : But . Leonard
found that it was not so easy a matter
to capture the deer, and as for the girls,
they, shunned him as they would the
wily panther, .: He . saw . many a face
and form that might have queened it
in the halls of fashion, but they seemed
to feel the. dignity of labor, and looked
down on the frivilous city idler. He
grew quite weary of his bootless game,'
and began to think seriously of going
home, when it chanced oue day that he
and Davis, 'with tho aid of a noble dog,
captured a young; fawn. As is usual
with these wild creatures, as soon as it
found itselfa captive, it. submitted to
a .it l it .i i .
its fate,, and followed meekly the lead
ing of a sash lied . round its . slender
neck. As they held their homeward
way in high glee, they : were suddenly
startled by the sound of a sweet, clear
voice, . singing a wild : and ; plaintive
melody.: - j J ; i
44 Gods!" cried Leonard, "here is a
singing bird, some where." j, i ;. .' . '
"Never mind the wild birds," cried
Davis; "it is enough for yoa to care
for your canaries." , : - - : ,
. ."But I will see her," cried Leonard,
and following the direction of the voice,
they . soon came in sight of a your)
girl sitting on a mossy liillock, between
three embowsring elms that drooped
their leafy .branches over ' a- limpid
brook. ; She was arrayed in puro white
muslin, and all the wealth xf her glossy
hair Jay in natural ringlets ujon her
bosom Vnd tnowy '"shonlders, :Svhile a
wreath of white roses upon her pearly
brow, was her sole ornament. '
; Sweet ' as a moonlight dream,"
whispered Leonard; "".Can 'you tell
me who she istw ' ? ' . ' ' ' "" " r
' Yes," replied Davis, doggedly ; ",it
is Rosalie' Persa, the fairest flower of
the IbresL" ' , ' ' ' .: " '
. Well,: come 'along arid introduce
me then, I must make her a present of
this fpotted1 fawn, as a companion in
her wanderings. ' She is a cod d ess of
the woods, I know, and no human voice
ever poured pueir magic' music. She
was never born in these forests, I
know." ' "' .
Here he was right 'Mr.' Persa had
been a rich merchant, had failed
through the villainy of some whom he
had. endorsed, largyf and. disgusted
with the hollow world, he had gathered
the wreck of his lortune, and with his
wife and infant daughter, sought peace
and truth in the reign of simple nature.
Mrs. Persa devoted herself to the edu-
cation of her only child, and there was !
no womanly accomplishment or branch
of polite literature with which Rosalie,
was not perfectly familiar. ... ,
. Startled though nhe was by the sud
den appearance ot. the hunters, she re
plied gracefully to their salutaiionsr
and received the little .tremble lawn
with real pleasure. .The gentlemen
insisted upon taking it home for her,
and Leonard was surprised to find how
near they wero to Mr.- Persa'a fine
farm and neat dwelling, which had
been hid by the thick evergreen of the
skirting woods. - ; . - . ...
. Leonard was delighted with all he
saw fairly fell in love with, Mr.and
Mrs. Persa, and ran raving about Rosa
lie. They walked in the tiue fields and '
orchards, and luxnrated iu the gardens
wilderness of flowers ; and ' when the
young men left, Leonard fancied him-'and
telf hopelessly in love; and Rosalie,
when she had given her mother a good j
night kiss, retired, with ner emotions
in her innocent heart. Leonard seemed
to her so superior to the yoiuig men of
her rustic . neighborhood. ..-..'
The chance acquaintance grew into
an intimacy ; and Davis began to fajicy
that the city beau was winning favor
with the forest belle.
" I will lay a stick in his vav" he
said to himself : the. upstart to come '
here and eclipse us all. : So he took an j might fill the void that Rosalie had left
opportunity to gire Leonard to under, j in his heart. It was all in vain. "

" I shall have the singing bird caged," j that I can love,? he said, " and with

Leonard was thunderstruck.
, 44 WhoT" he said to himself, 44 would i
have expected to find a coquttc here?
And then she seemed so innocent, so
truthful. How sincere she seemed, and
how her voice trembled when she re
hilied to' me, 44 1 have never encouraged
the addresses of any man.". But ; an
assumed simplicity is the height of a
coquetted art. However, I will match
her if the boy god favor me." : , . . , .
Now what n dolt this Leonard was,
to believe the lying words of one whom
he might have suspected of jealous
rivalry, rather than the fair truth of an
unsophisticated heart. But so it is. j
People will sometimes shut their eyes
when the book is open before them and
listen believingly to some Iving expos
tor.' So Leonard in his wonderful con-1
;ctn,.v mcAiv.,,1 in cLvu, ' i.ja nM,nr.r '

of male coauetto to uerfeetioti. "
! . .
oo tne larce went on, ne seeking oy
every artifice to win her favor, and she
evidently pleased with the- attentions.
Tii truth, slit fpll nil tli intprnst in liiin '
that a pure young girl can permit her
self to feel in one who has made no pos

44 Oh, she is in great trouble to day,"
said Mrs. Persa. -44 Edward Davis' dog

' He found her there sure enough.
Child that she was, she lfad wept her
self to sleep, with the tears still on her
long eye lashes, and some drops . trem
bling like gems amongst the forget-me-nots
on her bosom. - ' .
' 44 She is very beautiful," he s0d,
44 and sorrowful. But how camo Davis'
dog here to chase the fawn ?' Well, I
will have a kiss, any how.". , But his
breath no sooner, touched her. cheek,
than she startled wildly up, in. all the
loveliness of blushing confusion. .. ',.
44 1 am sorry to have disturbed 'Miss
Persa." he said- coldK'. 4 I called to
'bid you' good-bye. I leave 5 to-morrow

brooks, and tearing through brushes
and brambles ; - and worse than all,

Rosalie ; stared at him in surprise!
He had come out in a new character,
entirely. .Still she did not. dream of a
final farewell. " She took the forget-me-nots
from her bosom, gemmed as they
were with tears, and: offered them to
him . with a sad ' smile and r trembling
hand. . He took the in, hesitatingly, and
stooping, pi o eked a broad' golden dan

with a forced playfulness. 44 1 'do not

How Seth Hawkins Stole the Old Lady's
-.'-'-." '; v! Night-gown." '
Sundav nirht was the season which
Seth chose to do his weekly devours,
as Mrs. Hornby would.say, and his
road to neighbor Jones's, whose daugh-
teP Sally was the, object ; of :his
particular hope, lay across thrfse long
,n,cs 0r hard territory, stumpy as an
old woman mouth, nnd as irreelaim-
able as a j)rodigal son gone away for
; the third time;- 1 ' -
j V One all-sufficiently . dark nicht, un-
!hce(ling wind and weather, as gallant
!and pnruee a lover as ever straddled a
stump , Seth, in best "bib and tucker,"
and dickey," and all that, started upon
his accustomed weekly pilgrimage to
the shrine of Sally Jones a sweet girl,
by the way, as strawberries and. cream
are sweet. ' . " . .
Seth knewJevery; land mark, if he
could see it;s but the night was' very
dark, and in a little while he became
confused in his reckoning, and taking
the light which gleamed from father
Jones' collage in the distance for a
guide, he pushed boldly oil, as a sailor
would say, to a huge stnmp, and rolled
incontinently over tho other side.
He gathered : himself up as best he
could, shook himself, to ascertain that
no bones were", broken, .and , then ; re
started oti his mission of Jove, his, ar
dor somewhat damped by "feeling the
cold night wind playing in fantastic
jets around his bodyenbting that the
concussion had breached Km 4toh-fie-for-shames,"
and that r.the seven-and:six-penny
casssimere were no more to be
the particular delight . of his eye, iu
couteraplatiW of their artistic excel
lence. .K;-il''.H',i ,'JO-, f V.-' '''
Ho knew not the extent of the dam
age sustained, but sqod . gaining the
house, his first glance -was "oyer ..his
person, to ascertain if decency would
be violated by an unwonted display;
but seeing nothings and trusting to the
volumniuous proportions , of his coat
for concealment, he felt re-assured, and
took his seat in a proffered chair by the
fire. ' v' ''" '
Whilst conversing with the farmer
about the weather, and with the dame
nnon the matter of eheesss, he glanced
at Sally, and saw, with' painful surprise,
that ghe' was lookins. axinnslv . . nn
somewhat strangely, towards a portion
of his dress.-- She averted her eyes- as
she caught his glance ; but again catch
ing her eye upon him, he was induced
to turn his in tho same direction, and
saw, good heavens ! was it his shirt?
oozing out of a six inch aperture in the
inside-of 'one of ' his inexpreVsibleVI
He instantly -changed 'position, and
from thatmument was on nettle. :- Was
he making 1 more revelations ;by the
change?,, He watched the first' oppor
tunity io push the garments in a little.
Could he succeed in hiding it; it would
relieve his embarrassment. Again he
watched his chance, and again stowed
away , the linen. It seemed intermina
ble', iike the Doctor's tape worm, and
the more he worked at, it, the more
mere seemed lelL: " " -T-
In the.- meantime, his conversation
took the hue of his agony, and' his an
swers bore, as much relation to the ques
tions asked, as the first! line - of the
Songs of Solomon does to the melan
choly burthen' of "Old Marm Pettiu
gilL";. .. '.V ,
At last, with one desperate thrnst,
the whole disappeared, and he. cast a
triumphant glance toward Sally.. One
look sufficed to show that she had com
prehended tho whole, and with the
greatest effort wax struggling to prevent
a laugh. - Meeting his glance, she could
contain, herself -no longer but, scream
ing with accumulated fun, she fled from
the room ; and "poor Seth, unable to en
dure this last turn of his agony, seized
his hat, and dashed - madly' from the
house, clearing the stumps like a racer
in the dark, . and . reaching home he
hardly knew when or how. . .
As soon as he was gone, Mrs. Jones
looked about for a clean night-gown
that she had out for service on the
back of the chair on which Seth had
sat, She was positive she took it out,
but where upon earth it was she could
not conceive. , ' ' ' ,
44 Sally ?" cried the old lady from the
door, "have you seen my night-gown ?"
'"Ycs'm," echoed her voice, as if in
the last stage of suffocation 44yes'm,
Seth Hawkins wore it borne I"
It was unfortunately; tho case, and
poor Seth had storced.it axcay in the
crevasse of 'his pants I It was return el
the next day, with an npologv," and lie
subsequently married Sally; but many
years afterwards, if any aiticle of ; any
description was missing, of apparel or
otherwise, the first suggestion was that
Seth Hawkins had stowcd;it away iu
his trowsers. , r' ' ? ; ! :

'i Comfort ron Covs. Now that th
ctld. season is setting iir, let the cows,
especially the -milk. givers, have all
needful; attention. They should "be
well housed and. well fed.j:. The stables
should be just moderately, warm,-well
ventilated, clean, and .. provided with'

animals should bo kept comfortable.

chopped roots- of cot ; straw or stalks
mixed with meal of some kind.- - A fa
vorite "mess" for cattle, with a friend
of onrs, is this : Cut up hay, or straw,
or stalks in pieces not more than an
inch or an inch and a half long, "put
the provender in a. tub or tight box,
and pour boiling water, upon it ; then
sprinkle on a little salt, and; cover the
whole with a little bran or meal to keep
thet steam in. When cold, feed it in
messes of a bushel at a time. Good a
this is it should be varied from time to
time, for cows like variety as well as
men. Cows should be salted; two or
three times a week. - In mild weather
they should range by day in a commo

yard should have a pen-stock of run

From our Regular Correspondent with the
" Kansas Kegiment... ... ...';.
. r Cam? Defukck, Kansas, Jan.. 21th, 1862.
Mr. Editob: Camp life in winter it
so monotonous that your correspondent
find's himself rather short $f material
with whicfi to make a comsoniijcation
interesting. The regiment' lo which
have the honor to belong (the1 Kaqsai
S"d) forms a part of the Kansas Brigade
better known as; Lane'a Brigade.. It.
would be supciflaous for me to occupy;
your space wilh an -account of its"pr6
ceedings since its formation , In ; Jul
last, for the Country at: Jarge are well
informed of its noble deeds of daring;
and the manner of Gen. Lane's dealing
with those whose avowed object is tho
destruction of our Government Tho
Brigade when 'commanded ' by Gerv
Lane was composed of three regiments,
viz: The 3d, commanded by ,Colotel
Montgomery ; the 4th, ' by Col.' Weef,
and the Sth, by Col. Johnson.;' Neithe'iK
of these' Regiments , were - full, your
readers, therefore, can; form a pretty
correct idea of the foree Gen.. Lane
had to operate with. - The successor
ihe Brigade is attributable to the fact
that we had a Hot man for a General;
and ho cammanded men who were al
ways ready to cultivate the acquaint
ance of the enemy whenever an, oppor
tumty presented itself. - They have not
evinced the fame willingness to become,
acquainted with us,. and the only rta-.
sou why we have not placed them all
among those that werej but are not, is,
because they have shown themselves
as belonging to the fast portion of the
rebel soldiery. .Price 1 is now movinx
Souih, into Arkansas. We propose to.
pay mm a visit even there. We are
receiving an' entire nevy outfit of Camp
equipage, &c.t preparatory to our jour
ney Souih, it being the desire of GenI
Lane to place his 'men in the best con-'
dilion possible for the campaign. - Tlio
Kansas troops have not merited, the
bad treatment they have heretofore re
ceived of GevernmenL' - Our clothinir
has been of an- inferior" quality, and
our "pay unjnslly, withlield from ''.vuL
The 3d, 4th and 5th Regiments were
mustered into the service in July,' and
have not yet received one cent of payi
That they have fought "gallantly mus;
be admitted. "' Why, then, bare , thef
been thus treated ? It should have
been borne in mind by those in' author

deprived of a harvest in 60, and before

left solely dependant upon their earn,

earnings , have been . withheld; from
them, for what reason we know not,
and has caused many privations in the
families of those who left all and rallied
at the first call pf their country. ; ; Since
I have commenced. writing amessoner

the long looked for. Pay master, stating
that he; will be here . in a-few days.

rival of. "contrabands" into our campv:
A few days ince, Gen. Price's cook:
arrived. His manner of escape" was,
as ' follows : Gen. Price . was camped
near Oseola, and hearing , that SigeJ i
was marching to attack him, he marched;
his men into a body of timber between
two hills and secreted them.' While1
there in the'woods the negro made this:.
escape. ...lie, states, that Price's forced
was about 8000. men who were poorly
clad and destitute of everything whiclu
renders the : camp ' agreeable. ' Deser-"
lions were of frequent occurrence ,
caused, by the rough fare to which they
were -.subjected. I
An unfortunate occurrence happened
in camp last might which is a source of
regret to ' the entire Jlegiment. A ;
traitor whom we. held as prisoner sue i
ceeded in effecting his escape, by the 1
neglect of the guard. His crimes were
of the deepest dye, and at the time of
his escape he was undergoing his UiaJ -
before a Court Marshal, p .7'
i We are anxiously awaiting-the ar-'
rival of Gen. Lane and the forces from
other. States, which is to comprise his"
command, when they arrive I hope to
have something more'of intorast toT
