(From the New York Mercury ) " CASTE; OR, HIGH LIFE BELOW STAIRS. BY DAISY HOWARD. " But she is well-born, Aunt Sarah; and a perfect lady." "No matter, child; she is poor, and works for a living!" "0 auntie! that will not hurt her, or make her any the less a true woman." "That is sufficient on the subject, Mary Barton. You will not go to see Mrs. Leighton with my consent. I shall not permit Elvira Louisa to do so. Remem ber, my daughter, you are not to call upon Mrs. Leighton." "Do not fear for mc, mother," said the nromisine daughter of the hiirh-born Mrs. Stinson; "I fairly despise her white race and sad way or speakingr. ritz James said, two ctbnr nicht, she had the most intellectual face of any lady in town, besides being herself very handsome. That was enough to make me hate her. I don't see what such upstarts are per mitted to get into our set for. I think the Davenports and Lanes are crazy. Would you believe it, mother? I saw Kate Davenport out walking with her yester day?" "Why, Elvira Louisa! you don't say so? I am surprised." "How doe3 my dress do, mother? Does it trail enough? "Yes, it trails about a finger-length; but.Georgette Lente's trail a qmrtcr of a yard. I do wish your father .was not so much opposed to long dresses; they are so stylish." "So do I; but, between you and I, moth'' er, I think father is getting to be a real old fogy, with his nankeen pants, yellow "Dinner., is ready, mum," said Irish Bridget; and the ladies descended to their dining hall. "Good heavens! mother, where is the dinner? I sec nothiug but bread and butter. I hope the scenes of last month are not be acted over again?" "Hash, darling!" in a noisy whifper. Biddy, bring me some water." "There's wather fornist ye, mum." ' This is not fresh; carry it way." And as the indignant Biddy carried away the w:.ter, that was as cold as ice could make it, Mrs. Stinson breathed more J freely. I "My darling Elviia Louisa, why will 'you mike sucu rem irks befre the er ivmts. There is nothing in the house to 'cook to-day. L hid to use the marke' ' money to pay ;br hi making o 'your new cloak. Mrston, the mean thing, would not let it couie aw iy till the bill was p i;d. She said you let your other bill stand so long." The younger lady bit her lip-. "There, I have ha J eno.ih of that dinner. Come U stairs and heip me get ready. I forgol to ask you, how you put father off about the dinner?" "Oh! I told him Mary had gone a vis iting, and I was not well enough to staud over the range." "What did he say?" "Oh. he seemed glad Mary bad gone to enjoy herself a little; and said he would eat his dinner down town; anything to save Mary." 'I do wish we could afford to keep an other girl, mother." "Well, we never can, while Mary Bar ton is here; and that will be till she s mar ried, or dead. Your father is as stiff as a mule about her. He says he promised his dead sister to give her a home, and he means to do it." "What is she doiug to-day?" "In the out-kitchen, washing." "If father finds that out!" "Yes; but nc won't find it out," "Is my cloak becoming, mother?" "It's snlendid ! Makes you look ten years younger; i ten you wnat, ximm Louisa, if you don't go off this winter yov never will! You are thirty-three, you know." "You are mighty good at reminding me of my age. "Oh, well, dear! never mind; no one knows it but me. Has Fitz James said anything tender to you lately, dear?" "Yes, mother; he said, last night, that he 'Hcdh:?" Well that's coming to the poi;it pretty close. He'll soon propese. my dear." Good-bye, mother." And the amiable Elvira Louisa swept down stairs. An after-thought struck the mother, and flinging up the window, she called to ber daughter, who stood upon the marble steps drawing on her gloves: Elvira Louisa, if you meet Mrs. Leigh ton, don't speak to her; give her the cut direct. People w ho are intimate with the crema de hi crcme of "Punkinville," should not mix with those who work for a T 1 1 1 . 3t " living. Be sure you do not Hear your fat'-oVs p tore; I don't want him to sec that cloak." Nowit so happened that Mr. Lergltton heard the above remark. She was lean ing ber weary he:.d against the window, with only the snowy curtain that draped it between her and the voice that spoke the bitter words. She was worn out. with a day's hard labor with her pen, and had thrown up the window, that the pleasant iar hw-nd misrht chase awav the feeling of faintness th'it wus gathering about her heart. Her head ached and throbbed ouiy . . n .i. i - i . mi i "j a irtiic less man uer ue;;n. nicy naa &cberd hours before; but she could not stop Hi re-t then, for m,:ny pages of foolscap mut.t be written out be ore nijiht.

J . . . a A one to caress nsr lenaeiiy; no one asi there was in the aforjtitne- to draw her weary head upon his breast, and lay kisses tender and leving upon her throbbing brow end tired eyes. She had chambers in a gloomy house opposite Mrs. Stinson's which she rented for a mere trifle, beeause the house was bUpposed to be haunted, and the landlord was glad to rent it for any sum. The lonely woman was not afraid of the dead that was supposed to walk there; and was only glad to have the large airy c hambers at a price that came within her means. As Mrs. Slinson's remarks reached her ear, her lip curled haughtily for a moment, and then quivered like a child's. She arose and paced the floor hastily. "And so we are tabooed in Mrs. San son's 'set' we poor toilers who 'write for a living; because these small white hands have dared to earn their 'bread and butter'. Let me examine these hands; they are white and soft, and have no shadow of a stain upon them, thank God for that! They are. good ! hands enough, but they must be daintily folded all day long, they muBt be idle, useless little hands before they can be ad mitted into 'our set'. Do you think you eould keep still, busy little hands? Do you think it would be enough that you would be allowed to flutter over the keys of a piano, or glide along the strings of a guitar? or, pcrchace, embroider a collar, or box a refractory servant's ear?" In the nextroom, a voice started up that beautiful hymn "Homeward Bound": We live as pilgrims and strangers below We're homeward bound; Tough often tempted, yet onward we go, We're homeward bound. Trials and crosses we cheerfully bear; Toils and temptations -expecting to share; We hasten forward, content with the fare, We're homeward bound.' Whilst the clear young voice was sing ing, the flush gradually faded from Mrs". Leighton's face. "How foolish I have been! how sinful ! Why should the remark of this coarse woman excite and anger? It is hard, though, for my proud spirit to brook the insults this changed life brings me. When I remember the days gone by the happy homo and loving friends I feel that my cross is very hard to bear. Well, well, it matters little. Life is very Bhort; we can but plod patiently across the hills that iead to the fair land where our Sa viour dwells. Yes; our Saviour. He who came to save the poor as well as the rich; the unfortunate as well as the for tunat. Our Saviowr! whoee feet trod a humble path; whose infant head was nest led on a humble woman's breast; who was reared in a humble home. He left us no book in which was written the words, 'ton,' aristocracy, 'high Hie,' "upper tendom but we find it written instead: "Love ye one another, even as I have loved you ." "Tea is ready," said Mrs. Leighton's "little help' a girl of fifteen. "I have made you some uLe toast' just as you like it. I know it will do you good." Thank you, Ann; but you did me more good a little while ago, when you sang "Homeward Bound;'' it answered the need of myhe irt as your nice to.ist and tea will my body." This world of ours is very beautiful; but we would faint by the way if an arm of love was not laid tenderly around us. They who swim upon the topmost wave of fashienablc life, who are prosperous and wealthy, may manage to get along far a while without this arm of love to bear them up; but to us who bear the " bur dens and the weariness of Hie" on lip, and cheek, and brow, it is much to know there is an "arm of love" around us, and a hand stretched forth to lead us tenderly over the rough places. Headquarters, Fteld of Battle Groveton; Near Gainesville August 30, 1862. ! To Major General IlaUeclc, Geiieral-iu- Chisf, Washington, D. C: We fought a terrific battle here yester day with the combined forces of the ene my, which lasted with continuous fur' from daylight until after dark, by which time the enemy was driven from the field, which we now occupy. Our troops are too much exhausted to push matters; but I shall do so in the course of the morning, as soon as Fitz John Porter's corps comes up from Ma nassas. The enemy is still in our front, but badly used up. We have lost not less than eight thou sand men killed aud wounded, and, from the oppca ance of the field, the enemv have lost at least two to our one.. He stood strictly on the defensive, and every attack was made by ourselves. Our troops have behaved splendidly. The battle was fought on the identical battlefield of Bull run, which trreatly in creased the enthusiasm of our men. The news just reaches us from the front that the enemy is retreating towards the mountains. I go forward at ouce to see. We have made great capture; but I am not able vet to form an idea of their ex tent. JOHN POPE, Major General Commanding. The Indian Massacre gerated Exag- St. Pacl, August 23.

A messenger from Henderson says the half-breed scout, Fencer, would return to Fort Bidgely and give the inmates aasur ati'es of relief if they can hold out. There can be no surrender without anni hilation, and the inmates know this. Col. Sibley's force was at St. Peters at tour o'clock on Saturday morning, fifty miles from Fort Ridgely, but be could not reach them before Sunday evening. Colonol Cullen, with 700 cavalry, proposed to strike across ti c country from Henderson, and may get there ahead of Sibley. It is believed that the Indians will get in formation of the force advancing and hastily leave the fort. Col. Cullen writes that the further be advances the news be comes worse. All the inhabitants were flocking into the towns. Hon. J. R. Cleveland writes on the 21st, from Man- ato, that he staid at New Ulm last night, and saw most horrible sight?. One in stance ho relates, where he saw bodies of stalwart men with their throats cut from ear to ear, their skulls battered and limbs mutilated. He knew some of them well as good citizens of Brown County. Our opinion is that not less than five hundred have been massacred. Large portions of Blue Larth and Brown Counties are de populated, the wheat leftunstacked in the fields, and owners flying eastward.' BQfc.

Dear Spirit: No doubt many of your gentle readers would bo interested iu the whereabouts of Battery H, its condition. &c. Since the 6th of July, with the ex ception of one week in which we took a trip to Warrcnton and back, we have been resting here in camp. About a month ago we called upon our glorious native State for "more men" and our hearts is cheered by the noble re spouses from Marietta and Toledo. A week ago we were joined by 15 men from Marietta, and 35 from Toledo, swelling our numbers greater than the original. The government has seen proper to eiuit us again, and now we have two sections of English rifle, U. S. regulation guns, and one section of Napoleons. Everything is new, and all that is wanting now to make rebels howl is to give us an oppor tunity of barking at them. I hear a great many rumors concerning Pope, but will say that there has nothing important transpired during last week except the taking in by Sigel of about 2000 rebels, who passed through this morning, much excitement prevails here. On last Friday night a train outward bound laden with soldiers, were fired into by a guerrilla band. Fortunately no one was injured, the engineer jumped from the train, but the fireman ran through in safety. There are many thousands of soldiers laying near here, two corps of McClellan's army, Ileintzelman's and . About 5000 a day is forwarded on to the front to join with Pope. As fast as possible they are sent on, evidently they are designing to strike a crushing blow. Besides McClellan's army there is thou sands coming in here that has never been in the field, and a number of regiments of new recruits have been located here as a camp of instruction. I can not say how i . f .1.. soon we will advance to the tront, out it is hoped that during this week we can be readv to "chaw them up." With an ex ception or two, the boys are in the best of health, and now after a long rest they are quite vigorous. The (J2nd Ohio are in camp near, I have not seen them yet, but I learn that Lieut. West and his company are in fine health and are ready to make their name a ter ror to our foe. The 35th Ohio passed through to join Banks on Satur lay last. Ohio is now well represented in the Army of V the 5th, 7th, and 29th each numbor less than 100 men, command ed by one field ofiicer, a Captain and two Lieutenants they have covered themselves with glorv, but alas! there is but few of ihem remaining to enjoy it.

A SON OF MARS. It may bo to the eye of fashion very pretty and to the eyo of propriety very chaste, for a lady to exhibit a broad trail through the mud with a nice dress, but we think that the eye of prudence would not see it in either of those lights. B27" A correspondent of the Cincinnati Commercial writing from Lexington, Ky., ug. 27, says: The 95th Ohio camped a night or two since on the old Henry Clay farm at Ash land, now occupied and owned by that 'degenerate son of a noble sire," James B. Clay. James didn't like the idea of having Lincoln squatters on his place, but he couldn't help it. "How charming those blinds of yours are painted!" remarked Incubus to his friend feuccubns, who was furnishing a new and nuptial abode. "They are," replied Succubus, with his blandest smile, "and you will be surprised, perhaps, when I tell you they are the work of a blind painter." That's a favorite stream for trout. friend," observed a piscatorial acquaint ance the other day to a genuine sprig of the hiinerald isle, who was whipping away with great vigor at a well known subscrib- tion pool. "Faith, and it must be that same, sure enough," replied Pat, "not one of 'em 11 stir out of it."

SPEECH OF SENATOR BROWN ING, OF ILLINOIS. This patriotic Republican United States Senator, who placed himself, by risiug superior to party, the worthy successor of Stephen A. Douglas, has made a speech at Quincy, Illinois, the place of his resi dence. It was in defense of his course in the Senate against partisan attacks. Mr. Browning explained his position upon the confiscation question, and did it to the satisfaction and approval of a vast majority of those who heard him. He said that Congress had no power to con fiscate property, and that confiscation was a humbug. If the power of confiscation existed anywhere, it existed in the Presi dent, by virtue of his office as Commander-in-chief of our armies. The Consti tution conferred no such power upon Con gress, and he had sworn to support the Constitution. He could hot support the Confiscation Bill and the Constitution too, so he supported the Constitution and op posed confiscation. Upon this question he stood with the President. The same was true upon the question of arming the negroes. He was opposed to arming them and so was the President. He was lor. the Union a3 it was and the Constitution as it is. In the utterance of these patriotic sentiments, Mr. Browning was enthusias tically applauded. There were a few per sons present who did not join in these de monstrations of approval. But they were open, avowed, ultra Abolitionists. Mr. Browning denounced the Abolitionists in unmeasured terms. He denounced the Abolition leaders in the United States Senate naming Sumner, Wilson, and others as disloyal, traitors to the coun try, wild, deluded, crazy fanatics, who were bent upon the destruction of the Government. He had no sympathy with them, and1 had refused to eo-operate with therd, and should continue to do so. He had marked out his course and should pursue it. It mattered not that some of his old personal and political friends had turned against him he was for the Union a it was and the Constitution as it is, and upon that platform he intended to stand, though every friend he had should desert him, aud though every dollar's worth of property thatbe owned in the world should be sacrificed or destroyed. He was in terrupted by an Abolitionist present, who charged him with having gone over to the Democrats. Mr. Browning responded that he was ready to go over to the Democrats, or to any other party, or to act with pa triotic men to whatever party they might belong, who were for the Union aud the Constitution. Mr. B. then asked this brazen faced Abolitionist if he would be willing to receive the South back iuto the Union, with all their constitutional rights, if the rebels would lay down their arms to-morrow? As might be expected, the crazy fanatic replied no he would not! 110 wouiu not oe wnnng to receive tne willing to receive the South back uule,s they would first abolish slavery. Mr. Browning said this was just as he supposedthese Abolitionists were, not in favor of the Union and the Consti-1 ; uuou, out woum oat;Hue? uotu, auu oiiugj 4 k , . 1 I , yv-K 4-Via vtniln liAvrnnl flirt li i j T UVW , "h uc of resurrect ion, if they could but accom plish their wicked and traitorous designs. Another Abolition fanatic wanted to know j of Mr. B. whether he would vote iu favor ot" emancipating the slaves if he believed such emancipation would put an end to h - si said j& B j would 1 cn wnrvt fna I nnvfit'i 1 1 An I ri-lai thit ouul'uav nv vuoktviaivu, v ' uuti cn.u Constitution we have no power to emanci pate the slaves." At this noint, the Rev. Mr. King, who was in the audience, wis j tiMr.1 trt Bar that. !fr frnwnintr 'ia n ! traitor his country." Mr. B. did not probably hear the remark, as he did not condescend to notice it. Mr. Browning commented at considerable length upon the course of certain Abolition journal that have, devoted 30 much of their' ti me and space to denunciations of our Gener als in the field, and so little of their space to denunciations of the Tebel commanders-. Among thes$ journals were the Chicago Tribune and the Quincy Whig. He was particulaaly severe upon the editors of the Chicago Iribune. He read an article from the Tribune, and denounced it as the most infamous treason that had appeared in am7 paper published in the United States since the war began. Of the edi tors of the Tribune he had a most con temptible opinion. He did not believe them to be loyal, and, if they should take an oath to support the Government, he would not believe their oath. As to the Quincy Whig, he couldn't expect much from that source; it was incapable of utter ing the truth about him, and had persist ently misrepresented his position from the begining. He read some extracts from the Whig to show that he had been out rageously misrepresented by that paper. In regard to the war, he was for its vigor ous, energetic and successful prosocution. He told his Republican friends that they could not hope to bring the war to a suc cessful issue if they made it a war for the negro. The Democrats, he said, would not co-operate with them in a war of that sort. But confine it to its legitimate, rightful object let it continue to be, as it had been from the beginniug, a war for the Constitution and the Union, and the Demo crats would work and fight shoulder to shoulder with the Republicans, indeed, all tho patriots, of whatever party, would work together. Mr. Browning throughout was listened to with good attention and with great in terest. During his speech he was frequent ly interrupted with the enthusiastic ap plause of his audience. His positions, as 1-9 stated them and explained them on this occasion, are indorsed and approved by a large, overwhelming majoritv of thepeople of this oify and county. THE CASH MARKET. Money is not so scarce; the finsnual columns tell us, in the business newspa pers. On the contrary, capital is describ ed as running frantically up and down Wall street, every day, "seeking safe in vestment" a capital joke, no doubt, in the estimation of those who have to shin' Walj street, seeking the verv funds that are represented as seeking for them so anxiously. Aside from the cant language, though, of finance, money 13 always scarce or plenty with every man, just ia propor tion to his need or independence of it. If you have funds at command, and tq never seriously pressed for want of a sum to liquidate "that little bill," or to take up "that endorsement" you were foolish enough to subscribe on the back of ft friend's note, one day, when you felt "good" and jovial, or to settle with the landlord when he drops in "just to sea how things are going on;" if yott never have to wonder, at such times, how you are to "raise the wind," depand npop, it, "money is easy with you," and vou have uo reason to believe it isn't with other peopla. But, just reverse the picture. Just discover yourself "decidedly shor' at a time when everybody is prese.-.ting his claims to you and asking for payment Just run out, about that time, to your "good friend" Jor.es or that "hoot nf M. ' lows," Smith, whom you have so often ac commodated with the loan of a fiity, and try to borrow a ten or a twenty at-a moment's notice. Kgadl won't you be as tonished to find that everybodv else is in evitably "short" whenever you. happen to be in that condition, and that money is scarce indeed with all your acquaintances, because it is actually scarce with you.
