The Senate was occupied to-day with the presenta tion of resolutions, which were appropri ately referred. . : A Romance of the War. The late war has developed many ro mances, but none more singular and touching than the following, which we find in the Kalamazoo (III.) Qautle : In the summer of 1859 Charles Geroux became a graduate of a college in South ern Ohio. He was the descendant of an aristocratic family who lived in Louisi ana, and, to be brief, he was then a full embodiment of the " chivalry," just hav ing entered his majority. While attend ing college he had formed the acquaint ance of Clara G , who attended the college for young ladies in the same place, which 'acquaintance ripened Into attach ment and love; and just before the break ing out of the rebellion they were mar ried and Removed to the South. Miss G was an orphan, possessed of a considerable property, which wbs held in trust for her by an uncle, a Southern minister, who had raised her from in fancy, and personally superintended her education. In addition to the endow ments of a collegiate education, she was possessed of a strong character, border ing almost toward the masculine, but tempered with a sweetness and mildness not often combined in the same person. She was at once handsome and womanly. Within a year after their marriage and settlement in the Houth, tame the tierce, chill blasts of war from Sumter's parapet, and there was none more ready to enter upon the deadly fray than Charles Ge roux. His politicnl tutors were practi cal secessionists, and he entered upon the war with a fervor and zeal to com mand the admiration of bis friends, and which secured him a Major's commis sion. His wife opposed the mad scheme with all the power of a woman's elo quence, but to no avail. , She openly espoused the cause of the Union, and steadfastly refused to co-operate with her new friends and neighbors. Not withstanding her love for the old flag, and open Unionism, her husband loved her, and while her husband was at home the neighbors respected her. Geroux invested all bis ready property, which included his wife's fortune, in Confeder ate bonds, placed them iu her bauds, gave her a kiss for a short furewell, as suring her that the war would soon be over, add, marching at the head of a victorious column of his country's de fenders, she would be proud to welcome him. After liis departure, her treatment by his relatives and neighbors became almost intolerable because of her hatred of secession. After two years of service in the Cor federate army, be was captured a pris oner, by the victorious Sherman in his march to Atjanta, and sent to Camp Douglas. This wns good news to his wife, who could no longer endure the persecutions she received at the South, and she re solved to make her way North and rejoin him in his prison home, and if she could not secure his pardon to at least stay near him. Her Confederate bonds were worthless, nnd she was penniless. She made her way to the Mississippi river, and took passage on the ill-fated steamer Sultana, tor the North. She sold some jewelry for msney sniiicient to carry her to Chicago. Arriving at Memphis, her child was taken very ill and by the ar1 vice of the Captain of .the Sultana she remained there to secure medical aid for the child. - Within, tweoty-foar hours thereafter the boiler of the Sultana ex ploded and nearly two thousand lives were lost. . Geroux fared ill at ease id Camp LARGEST CITY CIRCULATION Douglas, and made many strategemi to escape. - He finally succeeded in bribing a raw sentinel to let bira pass, and to avoid pursuit a resort to deception be came necessary. A comrade of his was on the point of death. His mess dressed the dead soldier in the Major's uniform, and conveyed him to the dead-house, and gave his name as " Major Charles Ge roux, 3d Louisiana Regiment, C. S. A." The next morning the body was taken away and buried, aad the rank, name, regiment and place of burial were duly recorded in the register of Camp Doug las deed, by C. H. Jordan, the under taker for the Uovernment, at Vstncago, That night Geroux escaped. His absence created no inquiry, as be was reported dead. For the purpose of avoiding pub lic roads and conveyances, be took a horse from a pasture near Camp Doaglas, belonging to John L. Hancock, formerly President of the Board of Trade, and, by avoiding public roads as much as possible, reached Momence the next day. His actions excited suspicion, and he was arrested on suspicion of having stolen the horse, and was lodged in the Kankakee jail He was taken out on a writ of habeas corpus, and no proof be ing found to hold him he was discharged. His attorney, however, held the horse, and returned it to the owner. Geroux found a difficulty in getting through the lines, and was almost out of funds, and partly for the purpose of visit ing the scenes of his college days, and partly to wait "until something should turn up, whereby he could get South, he went from here to Ohio. Here be spent the last of his money. He was not easily to be discouraged. Through the assist ance of a Professor io the college, to whom he told part of bis history, he ob tained a situation in a wholesale house in Cincinnati From there he communi cated with bis friends in the South. After the usual delays in passing letters through the lines, be learned that nis two brothers were killed in the battle of the Wilder ness, and his father's estate bad been confiscated to the United States Govern ment, and his father had voluntarily ex iled himself. Of his wife and child, the only information was, they had sought to get North and took passage on the Sul tina, g'nee which she had not been beard of, and no doubt remained that she had perished. His true position had been studiously concealed, and he avoided his former acquaintances. Shortly after he received this information from the South, Sherman started on his grand march from Atlanta, and Grant marsbulled his grand army before Petersburg, and the Confederate States army vanished almost as a vision. During the past summer Geroux returned to the South, and was fully confirmed in the information be had received about his family, and that his real estate had also been confiscated. He gave his wife and child op as lost, and returned to Cincinnati. , , . . After his wife und child had remained in Memphis and escaped the disaster of the Sultana, she started for Chicago aid reached Camp Douglas. Impatient at any delay, she hastened there, with ex pectations high, to meet him who was dearer to ber than life. The reader can picture to himself the agony of this sad wife. A stranger, destitute of money, carrying in her arms a weakly child, not yet recovered from a severe illness, and she herself worn out with fatigue and anxiety, when she learned thnl ber husband was dead. There was no doubt of his death; the registry kept at Camp Douglus showed it, and the grave was pointed out to her, which bore this in scription on a pine board: "MAJOR CHARLES GEROUX, , 3D LOUISIANA CAVALRY." . The game grave this day is neatly sod ded over, and at its head is a rose bush. Broken hearted and bowed down with grief, she wended her way on foot to the great city of Chicago not knowing why she went A stranger among strangers, with no one to aid or pity her, save the good God, whom, in her inmost heart, she believed, had forsaken her. She was taken in and cared for by the Sisters of Charity until she could hear from her friends in Ohio, from whom she had received no intelligence for the past four years. A letter was received, that immediately after the war her uncle had died, and that soon after his widow had riu07fd to Iroquois county, .,inGis, to live with her married son. Mrs. Geroux was supplied with money to enable her to find her friends in Iroquois county, where she has since resided. Geroux returned to his situation at Cincinnati, and was sent by his firm to collect a debt due them in this county. While hern be sought out the attorney who had him discharged on the habeas corpn. tn learn the whereahonts of the horse that did him such good service, and to secure his assistance in collecting his debt He soon made himself knewn, and while they were discussing the stolen hore, a lady and child entered the same office. There was a momentary pause, and husband and wife were ia each oth er's arms. We shall not attempt to de scribe the scene which followed. The husband found a wife and child, whom he firmly believed dead and the wife found a husband, over whose grave she had shed bitter tears of woe. Mrs. Geroux was visiting the same at torney, to find out about her husband's confiscated property, and to apply to the Government to have his property restored to her. Explanations followed, about how each supposed the other dead. They returned to Iroquois county, a few mile south of our county line, the same day, and have since romoved to Cincianati, which city he will make his permanent home. Tha Next Vsto to be Unavailing. The following statement relative to the measure proposed in Congress for the admission of Tennessee into the Union will attract attention. It is made by the usually well-informed Washington corres pondent of the Baltimore Sun : The majority report will undoubtedly be maintained. The joint resolution which r-qnires that Tenaessee should acknowledge herself ont of the Union, and to be a suppliant for re-admission upou the terms which Congress imposes, will command, no doubt, a two-thirds vote in both Houses of Congress. Ten nesse may assent to it and ratify it No representation will Tennessee) have till she ratifies that decree. The Presi dent will have to act on this joint reso lution just as certainly as he had to act upon the bill admitting Texas. His veto wiil amount to nothing. The committee have counted the rotes in both Houses upon the measure. INSURANCE. 48,000,000 , DOLLARS OF PROPERTY Destroyed by Fire, Within tha limits of th United St-'..
