" A WORT TO ?TARU!CT rKOrT.E.
T!u riiii' of tlio tloor-l'o!Il;as .1 pleas
ant sonnil to mo, csofi:illy in my idle
rtiiMid.-i. Like an nrnient'.l lot tor, there
is a tiiYstor--atot it, ami one waits
with a jifoasuraMe excitement to sec
who or what was comim'.
Ketiirni iij homo one day earlier than
usual, 1 found my wif had gone out ;
and while loung'uigidly over the paper,
the hell ranir.
1 waited expectant till liridjret ap
peared with a note containinn a request
from my old friend, Tr. Stearns, to
ride out to his residence in the country
the next day, to transact some business
that had been loiiir pending, and an in
vitation to bring my wife and spend
I was pleased ; first because I want
ed the business completed; and soc
oudly, because I thought I needed a
15ut the next morning everything
seemed to go wrong. Alice could not
accompany me, and I could not get off
as early as I wished ;and consequently,
I was peevish ami fretful ; and Alice
reflected my humor, I suppose, a it
appeared to me she had never been so
At length, however, I drove away,
though not in a very pleasant mood.
It was a lovely October day ; and as I
rode along noting the tints of the
landscape, memory went back to the
golden autumn when I wood and won
How lovely Alice was then ! I thought
and how happy we were! But that was
long ago. Let me see j we have been
marrie-1 three years; is it possible it is
And I felt a pang as I contrasted the
past with the present, to think that wo
could settle down into the common
place life wc now led.
We bad no serious trouble ; we
didn't quarrel ; though when I felt
cross, or other things didn't go to suit
me, I took no pains to conceal it, and
often spoke harshly to Alice, who some
times replied in the same spirit ; some
times with tears. Yet we wore iene
ra'ly good friends. Cut the charm,
the tenderness ol our early love, had
I had become careless about my ap
pearance at home, and Alice was equal
ly negligent. Her beautiful brown
hair, which she used to wear in the
most becoming curls, was now usually
brushed plainly behind her ears, unless
ehe was going out or expected company.
I dismissed the subject with a sigh, at
the doctors gate, with the reflection
that it was the same with all married
people must Le so, in fact for how
could romance and sentiment find place
among so many prosy rcalites ? 1 sup
posed we were as happy as anybody;
and j et, it wa not the kind of life 1
had looked forward to with so many
The doctor came out and greeted me
cordially. In the hall we met Mrs.
Stearns, looking fresh and lovely in her
pink muslin wrapper, with her jetty
hair in tasteful braids. !She scolded
me playfully for not bringing my wife,
chatted a few minutes and then flirted
away, while the doctor remarking that
his motto was business first and preas
urc afterwards, led the way to the li
brary. As we entered the room, I noticed a
vase of bright autumn flowers on the
table, imparting an air of taste and
cheerfulness to the apartment. I made
some remarks about it, to which the
doctor responded :
"Yes, I am verv fond of flowers, and
love to see them in the house; and as
I spend much time here, my wife al
ways keeps a vase of them on the table
as long as they last."
Our business was finished before
dinner, and wc walked out in the
grounds, which were quite extensive
and tastefully arranged.
There was a variety of flowers in
bloom, and I noticed that the doctor
selected here and there the finest, until
he had a handsome bouquet.
When we reached the house, Mrs.
Stearns was on the steps. The doctor,
still continuing our conversation, gave
her the flowers, with a slight bow and
smile ; and holding up a spray of crim
son berries, which he had broken off,
she bent her head while he fastened it
among the dark braids of her hair.
It was a trifling incident, yet the
manner arrested my attention. Had I
U-en a stranger 1 should hiivo pro
nounced them lovers instead of sober
married people. All through the day 1
noticed the same delicate attention and
deference in their deportment to each
There was nothingof which the most
fastideous guest could complain ; yet
while showing tne the most cordial at
tention, they did not seem to ignore
each other's existence, as married peo
so often do.
I liad never visited tbedoelor Ix-fore,
and was very much pleased with his
tastful home. I said so, after dinner,
when we strolled out into the woods.
"Yes," he said, "I think it is pleas
ant;'' and he added, "I Udieve I am a
contented man ; so far I am not disap
pointed in life."
"How long have vou been married,
dot tor," I asked.
' "Ten years."
"Well!" I pursued, "can yon tell me
whence the bright atmosphere that sur
rounds your home ? Tell me how you
and Mrs. Stearns manage to retain the
depth and freshness of your early love,
as yon seem to do ? I should think the
wear and tear of life would dim it some
what. I never saw a home w here my
ideal of domestic happiness was real
ized lefore. It is what I have dream
The doctor smiled, and pointing to
a thrifty grape, climbing over a neat
lattice, and loaded with purple fruit, he
"That vine needs careful attention,
and if pruned and properly cared for,
it is what you see it ; but if neglected,
how soon would it become a worthless
thing in life, and vrLit h net'ds so much
care to keep it unimpaired, is gener
ally neglected. Ah I my friend, it is
little acts trifles that so often es
trange loving hearts. I have always
made it a point to treat my wife with
the same courtesy that characterized
my deportment in the days of court
ship; and while I am careful not to
oflcnd her fasts and little prejudices, I
am sure that mine will I e equally re
spected." That night T rode homeward ponder
ing the doctor's words, and reviewing
the years of our married life. I was sur
prised at my own blindness, and de
termined to recall the early dream if
The next morning at breakfast I as
tonished Alice by a careful toilet, chat
ted over the dinner, and after tea in
vited her to ride. When she came
down in my favorite blue organde, with
her hair in shining curls, I thought she
never looked lovlior.
1 exerted myself, as of old, to enter
tain her, and was surprised to rind how
quickly and pleasantly the evening
I resolved to test the doctor's theory
perfectly and the result exceeded my
most sanguine expeclationss.
For all the little nameless attentions
so gratifying to a woman's heart, ami
so universally accorded by the lover
and neghicted by the husband, I find j
myself repaid a thousand fold ; and 1
would advise all who are sighing over
the non-fulfillment of early dreams, to
go and do likewise, remembering that
that which is worth winning is worth
Gen. Lee and the Washington College.
There is no living hero there are
few, if any, among those whose names
shine with the purest lustre in histo
ry whose character has commanded
so high a tribute of affection and admi
ration from their friends, of respect and
honor from their foes, as that of (ien
eral Lee. "o life more perfectly he
roic, no reputation more untarnished
even by the minor blemishes which are
not uncommonly found in union with
the highest heroism, has ever been con
nected with a great national struggle.
No shade of vanity or egotism, noth
ing of the self-will or petulance so of
ten characteristic of conscious genius,
no tinge of affectation, no taint even of
the pride almost inseparable from or
dinary greatness of mind, which can
endure everything but humiliation,
and regards submission as disgrace, al
loy the simple grandeur of the Virgin
ian soldier's nature. A piety without
the slightest shadow of l'harisaism. a
every personal feeling and interest ap
pears a mere matter of course, have
marked his whole course and guided
ovev rkiiltlii or -lit lne m , I
dier or as a citizen. A family connec
tion and the nearest living resescnta
tive of the great champion of Ameri
can Independence, ionernl I.ee has
been the Washington of Confederate
war; like Washington, a man "whom
envy dared not hate," but without even
the one dark stain of doubut, if not of !
dishonor, which the death of Major An
dre has left on the memory of his pro
totype. No more "selfless man and
stainless gentleman'' ever lived ; no sol
dier ever set a more admirable exam
ple of the soldierly virtues of honour,
chivalric generosity, and manly sim
plicity ; no great man ever retired in
to obscurity, after witnessing alike the
ruin of his cause and the destruction of
his private fortunes, with more of Chris
tian patience and unshaken fortitude.
Drought up in the political faith which,
up to INtio, was never questioned in
the South, and generally held through
out the Union, that the States were
sovereign Towers with a paramount
and inalienable claim on the allegi
ance of their citiens born in a State
which had, on entering the Union, for
mally reserved her sovereign charac
ter and the right of resuming her inde
pendence when Virginia quitted the
Union (Jeneral I.ee conceived that the
Union was no longer his country; and,
abandoning his commission and career
in the Federal service, he tendered his
sword to his native State. Like sev
eral others among the military and ci
vil chiefs of the Confederacy, he was
not a secessionist, but simply a ir
ginian; he did not choose a party, but
followed what seemed to him the clear
and unmistakable path of duty. The
college of w hich (ieneral I.ee is now
the president was founded by and nam
ed after Washington. It is situated
at Lexington, Virginia, where Stone
wall Jackson is buried, and is, we be
lieve, the most popular place of educa
tion in the State. Lexington fell into
the hands of the enemy during the war;
and the college suffered severely in the
loss of library and apparatus, from one
of those acts of Vandalism which the
best friends of the North must most
earnestly deplore. The conquest of
the State, and the consequet deprecia
tion of all and the destruction of the
value of a large part of her public
debt, has terribly reduced the
fund of the college, whie his unable
either to replace its losses or to pay
adequate salaries to its officers. In
short, its endowments have been whol
ly or in great part swept, away; and a
sum if iiU,(iUi). will be required to re
store it to a satisfactory position. It
is the wish of those who are endeav
oring to raise this fund that the new
endowment should be connected with
the name of (ieneral I.ee ; w ho besides,
as president, will be personally ben
efitted thereby, the college being at
present wholly unable properly to re
munerate his services. The (Jeneral
has steadly refused to allow any ap
peal to le made to the pul.dieou bis be
half, or to receive the sums which have
been raised without his knowledge; so
that this is the oniy form in which
tiiose who admire ami esteem htm can
have the opportunity of presenting him
with a testimonial of respect or of assist
ing to secure his old age against the
poverty in which the confiscation of
his property and the ruin of his cause
has involved him. So anxious are his
countrymen to do him honor, and to
relieve hiin from a position which
would be a disgrace to them, that in
spite of the present depression of Vir
ginia and her sister States 1 11.0(H)? has
already- been, raised in America, and it
is expected that as much more will be
collected after f he fruits of this year's
harvest have been realized. For the
remaitiingthird of the requisite amount
application is made to (ieneral Lee's
admirers in Kngland. who will, we are
sure, be grateful to those who have af
forded them this opportunity of testi
fving their esteem and regard for one
of whom not his country alone, but the
Kiiglish race throughout the world,-

Major General Stephen G. Burbridge.
From the Kentucky Oa tte.
Wc have information that this man,
some time since Federal viceroy of
Kcntuckv, has been appointed Lieu
tenant Colonel in the I tegular Army
of the United States. This was done
during the absence of the l'resident
from the great seat of government, and
it is to le hoped that it was done with-,
out his knowledge or consent ; for it
was an outrage upon the feelings of
the people of Kentucky to reward a
man who was our plunderer and the
murderer of our innocent citizens, by
giving him a considerablo Federal ap
pointment. So long as he hid his dis
graced head under the obscurity of
private life, we let him remain buried
with the thousands of crimes which he
had committed and granted hiin an
amnesty of oblivion. lint coming
again into the public view and clothed
with a new appointment as a reward,
seemingly, for those very services
which render him a stench in the nos
trils of our people, it is proper to take
a review of his administration of the
ltopartment of Kentucky.
How he came here it matters not,
but we find him in in absolute
control of the State, with a large force
at his disposal. Then was inaugura
ted a system of plunder and corruption
hardly equallcd by llntler in New Or
leans or Taiue in Tadiicah. If a man
was known to entertain any sympathy
for his suffering brethren iu the South,
and he icas jww'i tny r"p rt'j
-for this aggravated his offence-he was
arrested at the instigation of one of
Uurbridge's jackals, thrown into a
loathsome prison, and wi'in-zed of eve
rything it was possible to get out of
him. 1 hen he was permitted to return
home without the form of a trial award
ed him. In a neighboring town there
lives a man who boasts that he has
now g:JO,000 in notes taken from unfor
tunate persons of the kind spoken of
for using influence with this Command
ant of the" Department of Kentucky
for their release or the release of their
friends. A Colonel in the Federal
Army, and as gallant a soldier as ever
wore sword on his thigh, who was com
mandant of the post spoken of at one
time, authorized us to make the fol
lowing statement of an occurrence
which came under his own observation:
On visiting the military prison one
morning, as was his habit, he found a
man confined there against whom there
was no charge of any kind, and he or
dered his release. The prisoner told
him that an hour before a man, a law
yer by profession, came to mm ami told
him that there were grave charges
ininl liim t!iMl he tboii-'ht it harillv
possible to save his life, but if he would
give him 6-00, he would use his influ
ence to save him. As he had not the
money, the lawyer agreed to take his
note for it, and he asked the Colonel if
he must pay that note. The Colonel
told him no, and to get the note away
from him if he had to choke it out of
him. This same lawyer holds a con
siderable office under the State of Ken
tucky now. This is merely told as
ix familiar instance of that which there
are thousands of parallel cases in the
District which Hurhrnlgc commanded
We hope no one will be foolish enough
to pay an- ot this t.id.ono, and we
hope, father, that those who were ex
torted upon iu this way will take steps
to recover that which they may have
Hut these offences are small and ve
nial in comparison to w hat is to follow
iu our narration. It is the blood of in
nocent persons, shed without the form
of a trial, which cries aloud ia protest
against the rewarding of their murder
er by a Federal appointment. So fre
quent had become executions by the
halter or by detail, at one time in some
places, that such spectacles completely
debauched the public taste, and if the
populace were not invited to the week
ly execution, thej- complained of dull
ness, as Spaniards are accustomed to
complain if disappointed of their ac
customed bull-tight. lint there was
one victim, so young, so brave, so in
'Tli-- rabble rout, fir.t to shout,
Anii "-iiivtiTm- ln-1-1 Iticir breath.
For well they knew the IlL-ro's Soul
Was face to lace Willi drain."
This was a prisoner of war, who
had made his escape from Camp Dou
glass, and was captured as lie was ma-
king his way through Kentucky intwf
the Southern lines. He was ordered to
be hung a few hours after his capture,
and his sister, plead with Burbridge on
her knees that he might be permitted
two days in which to make his peace
with his God. Her prayer was refus
ed, and having fainted, she was carried
out and laid in the streets by the guards
who attendeil headquarters. Theyoung
man was hung, and women wept and
strong men ground their teeth as they
cursed the inhuman wretch who order
ed him to execution. We know that
Burbridge attempts to excuse himself
by saying that he had secret orders
from Washington to obey a junto set
over him, of which the public had
no knowledge, and that the- were re
responsible for these things. This is
no excuse, for if he had been any part
of a man, with the feeling of a man in
his bosom, he would have scorned to
commit murder at the dictation of any.
He is the murderer, let who may bo
the accessory. Is it, any wonder that a
man guiltv of crimes, of which the
I above is but one out of many, should
j fear to return to Kentucky ? The won
: der with us is, that he docs not fear to
j l e recognized anywise, and shun the
face of all men and betake himself to
; some desert place, or seek relief in the
grave. 'I hat Mich a man should be
j rewarded with anything but a halter
j and perpetual infamy is evidence that
j he had accomplices in his crimes in
high places. That the people of Ken-
tucky will resent his recent appoint
! nient and protest against it, is not to
be wondered at. No President or Cabi
net minister with a knowledge of this
man's antecedents who would give him
anj' considerable appointment deserves
the confidence or support of our peo
ple. The most envenomed radical
could not do worse, and if this is the
kind of appointments which are to be
made, and I his sort of men are to re
ceive Federal patronage, tlien we care
not how soon Thad. Stevens or Sum
ner succeed the present Executive.
