TIIE COME3XXCD SEXTIA'CL.' ,-A cold, stonuy night in the month of Marchj"-lS07, Marshal Lefebvre, with, 'twenty-seven . thousand French troops had invested Dantiez. The city was garrisoned by seventeen thousand Rus sian and Prussian soldiers; aud these togcthowith twenty or thirty well arm ed citizens, presented nearly double the forcn w'-.ich could be brought to tha as sault. So there was need of the utmost vigilance on the part of the sentinels, for a desperato sortie from the garrison made unawares, might prove calamitous. At midnight Jerome Dubois was placed upon one of the most important posts iu the advance line ot pickets, it being upon a narrow strip ot land rising above the marshy fiat, called the 1 eniusula or Neb rung. For more thau au hour he paced his lonely beat without hearing anything but the moaning ol the wind and the driving of the rain. At length, however, anothersound. broke upon his ca. He "srppr-a and listened, nd pre- sently he called Who's there? The only answer was a nioaningsound. He called again, aud this time he heard something like the cry of a child ; and presently the object came toward him from out of the darkness. AVith a quick emphatic movement, he brought his musket to charge, aud ordered the in truder to halt. . ' '" ' " Mercy.!" exclaimed a childish voice. " Don't shoot me ! I am Natalia." Dcu't you know me ?" ' ' "Heavens I cried Jerome, elevating the muzzle of his piece. Is it you, dear child?" " Yes ; and you are good Jerome. Oh, you will come aud-help mamma. Come, she is dying." , It was certainly Natalia, a little girl ouly eight year old, daughter of Lisette Yaillant. Lisette was the daughter of Pierre Vaillanr, a sergeant. in Jerome's own regiment, 'aud was iu the army in capacity of'nurse.., ' J ' Why, how U thi's,; "my . child ?" said Jerome, taking , the little , one by the arm. '.What is .it about your mother?" " Ou. good Jerome, you can hear her now. Hark!' C ;-' The sentinel bent ls ear, but could hear ouly the wind and the raiu. ' - 'Mamma is iu the dreadful Bind," said the child, il and is dying. ; She is not far away. Oh, I cau hear -her crying."' . ' ' ' ' Jy degrees, Jerome gathered from Natalia that her father' had taken her ! out with.him in the lnoining, aud that iu the evening when the storm came on, herts V .' . .r- i rri .. t u. i vi imiiiicr vuijic uiitr tier, x iik pci jii aii i iiiiu ofiTered to seud a man back to the camp with his wife, but she preferred to re turn aloue, feeling sure that &ho should meet with no trouble. The way, how ever, had become dark and uncertain, and she had lost the path, and wandered off to the tVJof the morass, where she had sunk iu Tue mud. Oh, good Jerome," cried the little one, seizing the man's hacd, "cau't you hear her? She will die if you do not come and help her !" At that moment the petitincl fancied he heard the wail- of the unfortunate womaj Lisctte, the pood, the 'beauti ful, the tender-hearted Lisctte was in tianger, ana it. was in uis power to save her. It was not in his he;trtto withstand the pleadings of the child. lie could iTrt and rescue the nursw and return toi his post without detection. At all events, he could not refuse the childish pleader. "Give me your haud, Naulia, I'jl go alonsr with you." ' With a cryf ffly the child sprang to 1 . I the soH'T" sid' v,iia he 1 towariI7eplace wTtere sije EaU jjft TeT t5 mother. It seemed a lonz distance to Jerouio, and once he stopped as thugli he would turn back.

It was lit easy matter to extricate hor from the miry j pit, as the wot kuym had to be very care j iul that he did not himself lose his ioot- t nrr. At lenjitu. Jiowover, she was drawn ; lurui, ana ' m ucr lvmaiu to ins r .... u i i. V 1 rt . !. l . i . post. - Who comes there?" cried a voice from the gloom.. " Heavens !': gra?i-l Jerome, stopping land trembling from head to foot. " Wlio comes there? ' repeated the voice. Jerome heard the click of a musket! lock, and he knew that another sentinel had been placed at the pst ho had left. The relief had come while he was ab sent! "Friend with the couutcr.-ign !" ho answered to the last cill of the new sen tinel. He was ordered to advance, and whee j he had given the countersign he found i himself in the nresence tit the officer u: tj,e suanL Iq a ew liurrie words L? ! told his storv : and had the officer bees : alone he miirht have allowed the matter to rest where it was. But there were s others present, and when ordered to giro i : un his musket, he obeved without a mm- ! ! mtir. and sileutlv accompanied tlie otli- ' .f t ( jlit "iitt v-h.r, hf e:-l lillt. in: irons. On the following morning, Jerome Dubois was brought before a court i.iar- ; tial under charge o! itavntg ae -Ci ted h '.' to then permission was granted lain teli his story. This he d:.d iu a few words, but the court could do nothing but pa-s sen tence of death ; but the members there of all signed a petition praying that he might be pardoned, and this petition was gent to the General of the division, by whom it was endorsed and seut up to the Marshal. Lefebvre was kind and geuerous to his soldiers, almost to a fault, but he could not overlook so grave an error as that committed by Dubois. The orders given to the eeutinel had been very simple, and foremost of .every necessity was the order forbidding him to leave his post uutil properly relieved. To .f certain extent the safety of the whole army rested on the shoal lers of each individ ual sentinel and especially upon those who at night were posted marcst the lines of the enemy. " 1 am sorry," said the gray-haired old warrior, as he folded up the petition, and handed it back to the officer who presented it. " I am sure that the man meant no wrong, and yet a great wrong was done. He knew what he was doing ahd ran the-risJi.hewas detected he has been tried XcZdemned. He must suffer !" They asked Lefebvre if he would seeTTud the Prussiau infantry charged 'over the condemned. " the Peninsula, the result might be cal 'No. no !" the marshal replied quick ly. "Should I see him aud listen to his story I might pardon him, and that must not be done. Lethini die that thousands may be tajrled." The time fisAiJ for ths execution of Dubois was tr rning succeeding his i i riM. - .1 'i? .1. : . trial. Tl Jlarshal lie IT nic luiciyitir Lef'eV--kas made known to him, and he was not at all disappointed. He blamed no one, and was ouly sorry that he had not died ou the battle field. " I have tried to be a good. Eoldier," he said to the captain-' " I i'eel that I have done no crime that should leave a stain upon my name." - ; ., " The captain took his hand and assur ed him that his name should be held in respect. Towards evenini Pierre Yaillant, with his wife and child, were admitted to so the prison ejVA, This was a visit which Jerome woiVf i"'y liave dispensed with, as hr ,eliugs were already wrought up tV"a pitch that tilmos't un manned Jm ; but be braced himself for tho interview, and would have stood it like a hero, had not little Natalia, in the eagerness of her love and gratitude, thrown herself on his bosom and offered to die in his stead. This tipped the brimming cup, and his cup flowed freely. Pierre and Iisctt'knew not what to say. They wcjfirfjprayed, and they ould have wiluiTgly' died for the noble fellow who had been thus condemned. Later iu the evening came a compan ion, who, if he lived, would nt sometime return to Jerome's boyhood home. First the condemned thought of his widowed mother aud he sent her a 'message of love and devotion. Then he thought of his brother and sister. And finally he thought of one a bright eyed maid whose vine-clad cottage stood upon the Seine -one whom he had loved with n love such as "great hearts alone can feel. "Oh, my dear frieud!" he cried bow ing his head upon his hands; "you need not tell them a falsehood; but if the thing is possible let them believe that I fell it battle." Hi? companion promised tint he would ruth if - . fn;e f e so ;bj03 shout J . i?Js of thobe who iiic ti .Jerome dishonor iu the had loved him in r days.

" What shall we do wiih Jerome Du bois; " God bless him !" cried the veteran general, who had heard the whde story, I'll pardon him to-day and to-morrow I'll promote him."
