EBENSBURG, PA., THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 5, L868,
The Rebel Spy.
The other day I met a friend who was
formerly one of the Red Devils. During
the conversation which ensued" he asked
me whether I remembered Bill ,
who deserted the regiment at Fortress
"A slender dark-eyed young fellow,
was he not V -
"The same," replied my friend. "We
became chums from the first moment we
met at Fort Schuyler; and if you will gi?e
me your attention a few moments you
shall hear how he came to desert the regi
ment, and a few other facts that will sur
"13y all means," sail I, "let me hear
"Well," began my friend, "one day
we were sitting in the shadow of a pine
tree 1 near our encampment at Fortress
Monroe, when my chum commenced to
speak of a beautiful girl in the village of
Hampton, whom he waS in the habit of
" 'She is a beauty !' he exclaimed en
thusiastically ; 'and Jack,' he added, lay
ing his hand upon my arm, 'you shall go
with me to see her."
' At first I objected, pleading as an ex
cuse the modesty and bashfulness I always
experienced in the presence of the fair
" 'But she isn't fair,' said ho; 'sha is a
' 'When do you think of going V I
'To-night.' ' ;
" 'But we'll have to "run the guard."
"'That's nothiug,' answered Bill; 'we
can easily manage that.'
"So at length I promised my chum
that I would accompany him to the village
of Hampton to se3 the beautiful quadroon.
"When night came, and we started
upon our nocturnal expedition, we had no
difficulty in passing our line of sentinels;
for by some means or other Bill had
succeeded in obtaining the countersign.
"This task accomplished, we now made
our way to the river beach, and after we
had walked a short distance, my chum
passed near a rock, that jutted over the
water, and showed me a small skiff moored
beneath its shadow. We were soon seated
in the skiff, which flew swiftly over the
waves beforethe vigorous strokes of our
paddles. In a few moments we reached
the placa of our destination a small,
dilapidated building which stood a few
yards back from, the spot where we landed.
There was a small archway beneath the
house, which evidently led into the cellar,
and it was to this quarter that the steps
of my chum were directed. Passing
through tho archway, we found ourselves
in total darkness ; but Bill shouted 'Come
on !' and so I followed although I stum
bled several times against some empty casks,
and ouce came very nearly being precipi
tated over a barrel.
" 'It's all right !' shouted Bill. "Come
" 'What the deuce tempted you to seek
an entrance this way V I inqured . "There
is a good stoop on the outside of the house,
for I saw it."
" 'It's the shortest route," answered my
chum. "Here we" are here are the cellar
steps," he continued, catching me by the
arm, pulling me towards him. "We were
soon at the top of the steps, when Bill
knocked at a door in front of us. A mus
ical voice said 'Come in !' and we entered
a 6inall, ueatly furnished room, in which
were seated an old negress and my friend's
"The latter was indeed a beautiful
creature, with long bright hair that de
scended below her waist, and eyes as dark
and--, soft as summer midnight. She
seemed very glad to see U3 Bill in par
ticular, around whose neck she threw her
arms, kissing him with all the warmth
and fervor of her Southern nature, while
he was not at all backward in returning
the compliment. The old negress rose
and left the room ; and I was just coming
to the conclusion that it would be a good
plan for me to do the same, when the
unmistakable tramp of horses, hoofs
approaching at a gallop saluted my ear?
and drew me ' to the window. Looking
out into the night, I caught sight of a
number of grey uniformed horsemen
coming towards the house at a pace which
must bring them to the door in a few mo
ments. "The moon, which had hitherto been
obscured by clouds, was now shining
brightly, revealing every outline of the
approaching, figuies. ; They were rebel
cavalrymen. ; . ' :
. " 'Bill,' I exclaimed, 'come here !
; "There was no answer, and without
turning around I again called his name.
. "Still there was no reply. : .";
"I turned' impatiently, and perceived
that both himself and the quadroon had
deserted the apartment ! '
I WOULD RATHER BE RIGIIT
I shouted .his name aloud, but there
was no response ; at that moment a gut of
wind swept through a broken pane of
glass and blew out the candle, Ieavmgme
in total darkness.
"Again I stepped to 'the window arAi
looked out. The horsemen had halted a
few yards from the hou?e,'and were dis
mounting. Presently , saw three of
them advance to the stoop, and heard the
clattering of their sabres and the noise of
their heavy boots as tbey ascended the
steps. I could also hear souifiof them
coming up from the cellar; so there was
now left to me but one way of retreat from
the apartment, the same by which the old
negress had made her exit. As I passed
through the doorway I stumbled against
the bottom of a staircase. This I imme
diately commenced to ascend as noiselessly,
and as swiftly a possible. - Arriving at
the top, I discovered a' door which I
pushed open without ceremony, and found
myself in a small apartment half lighted
by the rays cf a lamp which streamed into
it from another room connected with this
one by a door which had been left open.
The murmur of voices, coming from the
other apartment, fell upon my ear. I
looked through the open doorway, and
beheld a sight which surprised me.
Seated upon a sofa at one end of the room
wore three figure?. One was my chum
Bill , with his arm around the waist
of the quadroon, and her head upon his
shoulder ; while the other was a tall figure
in the uniform cf a rebel lieutenant of
" 'So Magruder doesn't want the village
burnt yet V remarked Bill, as lie stroked
his whiskers. 'There's an excellent op
portunity to do it, if he does, for the
pickets are very small around Hampton
" 'I kuow that, captain, answered the
lieutenant, 'but Magruder will wait until
he sees how long the d -d Yankees are
going to stay. ' If he sees a prospect of
their going into winter quarters here, you
may depend upon it he'll burn the town.'
" 'I shall keep my eyes about me said
Bill, 'aud report matters a usual.'
" 'But when are you going to rejoin us,
captain ?' inquired the rebel.
".'As soon as Magruder sees fit,' an-J
swered Bill, 'though to ter, the truth, I'm
about tired of playing thospy. It was a
deuced good idea of his ny geing to New
York and enlisting in the Fifth Zouaves,
lla ! ha ! ha ! Captain S , of the rebel
service, a lied Devil.'
"At that moment Bill happened to
turn his head toward the (Lor. Ourjeyes
met, and he sprang to hia feet with an
exclamation. At. the sane moment the
lieutenant arose and drew lis sword.
" 'You have overheard us V said Bill.
" 'Ay, traitor, every word I answer
ed. " 'I might have foreseen this said Bill,
in a tone of chagrin ; 'but thai, whisky of
yours, he adocd, turning to tho hcutea-1
ant. 'made me careless
''He shall vol leave this hou.e aliw
exclaimed the lieufenpt, drawing a pitul
from hi bolt and pointing it at my head.
"But I had picked up a chair as he
drew forth the weapon, and now with the
quickness of lightning I hurled it in his '.
lace. The pistol was discharged, but the J
contents whistled liarmleps.y over my
head. I darted f rani the room, rushed
down stairs, and liervin.c; myself - for a
desperate venture, dashed across the
apartment below, in the direction of the
cellar stairs. The room was filled with
rebel cavalrymen, but my sudden appear
ance so astounded them that they made
no attempt to arrest my progress. By tho
time I had reached the cellar, however,
they had recovered from their surprise,
arid as I sped onward I heard the report
of two or three carbines behind me, fol
lowed by' the whiz of bullets as they flew
past my cars; The next moment I had
passed through the archway into the open"
air. ana witu two or inrce oousas reacnea
the skiff. Unfortunitely, by the ebbing
of the tide, it was now high and dry upon
the beach. I seized the stern with both
hands, and by a great effort of strength
succeeded in launching.it. But the time
occupied in this maneuver enabled the
foremost of my pursuers to gain upon me.
With his piece clubbed and elevated on
high to deal me a powerful blow, he camo
on. But while he was yet a few yards
distant, I stooped and quickly unfastened
the rope of the skiff from -the stone to
which it was tied. Lifting the heavy
piece cf rock, I suddenly rose upright and
hurled it with all my force atthe head of
my pursuer. It struck him on; the temple,
and he dropped to tho boaehj like a jog.
The skiff was now drifting awiy from me,
but I darted into the water, aid being an
excellent swimmer, : soon succeeded in
reaching it. I clamberod into it, and
then looked toward the beach.
alrymcn were drawn up in line

THAN PRESIDEKTVHeset Clat
" 'F4re V exclaimed a voice, which I
recognized as that of the lieutenant.
. "Bu t er.e the sharp report of the Carbines
rang out upon the air,' I dropped to the
bottom of the skiff, aud the storm of lead
passed over me and flew hissing into the
water beyond. :
"I now sprang to my feet, and with a
shout of defiance seized the only oar the
boat contained, and, adopting the sculling
process, sent the light vessel shooting
through the water like a rocket. Assisted
by the tide, the skiff flew over the waters
so rapidly that . before the men could
reload I was out of range.
"Half an hour afterward I. arrived safely
in camp, and was just in time to take my
place in the ranks, for, having heard the
firing, and supposing that our picket was
being attacked, the officers had ordered
tho men under arms. A message from
the front, however, must soon have con
vinced, them that tuch wa3 not the case;
and the men were allowed to break ranks
and disperse to their quarters.
" '.Well, com.,' continued my friend,
'this isn't the end of the matter ; for I saw
Bill again at the battle of Big Bethel. You
piobably remember that, during the fight,
a troop of rebel cavalry attempted to make
a dash upon us, but were driven back ?"
I answered in the affirmative, and my
friend continued :
"At the head of that troop rode Bill or
more properly speaking, the rebel captain.
I raw him as plainty as I now see -ou.
But it wa3 only for an instant. He tum
bled from his horse the next moment, his
head torn frofn his shoulders by a shot
from one of our brass pieces. At his side
rode a rebel who, upon seeing the captain
fall, drew a pistol, aimed it at his own
heart and fired. The horse becoming
unmanageable, galloped into our lines,
dragging the rebel alter him, the foot of
dead soldier having become entangled in
the stirrups as he fell. As the steed
dashed wildly about the field, the rebel's
foot became disengaged from the stirrup,
and he fell to the earth a few yards from
the spot where I was standing. .His
jacket had become disarranged and torn
around the breast, revealing to my aston
ished gaze the beautiful but blood stained
bosom of a female. I advanced and looked
down upon the corpse, closely scrutinizing
the features. The face was familiar. Once
seen it could never be forgotten. It was
the face of the captain's mistress, the
-In Essay read before the Cambria. County
Teachers' Institute, at Wilmore, Wednesday,
September 30, 18G3, by Mr. Samuel Singleton.
The subject of Grammar should elicit
the attention of all; but especially of those
whose business is to teach the elements of
language. The knowledge requisite for
any worthy discourse upon this subject, as
alio its natural intricacy, will scarcely al
low iae to hope for success in my attempt.
Whit i shail say, however, shall be to
make manifest the necessity, if not the
duty, of the study of this useful science,
and tho results accruing from such study.
Few gifts to man are more inestimable
than'that of language. Few relations are
more intimate than that between grammar
aud language. But a small number of
transactions can ba performed without its
aid ; and from an imperfect acquaintance
with it coiuo a large majority of our dis
pute. How essential, then, that wo devote
a portion of our time to that science which
gives beauty, force and precision to what
we write and speak !
Language is properly said to be the
medium of communicating our ideas, yet
uncertain indeed must be any communica
tion whole words are not defined and
limited by grammar. Language is, I
suppose, of Diviue origin. But let its
origin be what it may, its utility almost
entirely depends on the rules, limits, and
definitions by which we surround it. If
a Divine gift, how culpable the man who
fails to appreciate it as ho should !
All nations havo language, but grammar
as a science is the companion of refinement.
It is a truth no less exemplified among
ancient nations than those of to-day", that
as a people advance in civilization they
desire a language capable not only of
expressing their thoughts fully and fluent-1
ly, but one in which they can also record
the highest flights of the imagination and
the deepest passions of the soul. !
The same quality that so often Jia3
developed itself in love of dominion and I
conquest, Becks under the influence of
civilization an altogether different end. By
the existence of a copiou3 language, made
more and more copious, polite and beauti
ful by being reduced to a science, the end
thus sought is at once attained. There is
brought it to being a world of literature ;
and we are given those works, prose and
poetic, of fancy and fiction, which consti
tute our belles lettrcs.
It is not necessary that lfo more than
call your attention to the ftjpt, that yoa
shall realize how each age would reufcio.
in almost total ignorance of the preceding
ones were it not for this useful science, as
developed in history. Nor need I show
how it is the key to all other sciences, as
affording the' chief means of investigation
and keeping on record that which is
discovered. J shall allow these to suffice
with this passing notice.
No language, however beautiful, howev
er well adapted to all the purposes of the
man of science, the historian, the poet and
the orator, is free from the danger of
deteriorating into a multitude of dialects.
But few bonds ot union are stronger among
men than that of speaking the same tongue.
To be cast among those whose words
convey no meaning to your ear, i to be
cut off from almost all communication of
spirit, and i3 a fate but little better than
isolation. To meet in a strange land,
among people of a foreign tongue, one
whoso words aro your words, is to meet
bnt little less than a brother.
7 If these thinss are so and I think they
will not be gainsayed then we may conclude-that
whatever tends to detract frooi
the goodness or the purity of our language,
is a foe to our harmony and our oneness.
No words are ' sweeter, none more
musical to the ear, nor do any satisfy the
soul so well as those in which a mother
taught the infant lips to pray and a father
gave his counsel. Time cannot efface our
Jove for them ; nor can change alter their
sweetness. In hours of deepest grief they
have carried the balm of consolation to the
wounded spirit. In moments of greatest
exultation they have given expression to
the heart's deenest jov. All that has
moved ua to pity, or driven us to anger,
has reached our compassion or resentment
through these. IIence .it is that even a
difference of accent grates on the ear.
Unity of language, no less than unity of
sentiment, maintains a people in boh.ds cf
union, whether in Divine worship, in social
intercourse, or in any other respect. On
the other "hand, difference in language,
incongruity in speech, divides, alienates,
and distracts. My plea, therefore, is, that
between the sands on either seashore, aud
from the banks ot the Mexican gulf to
those of the Northern. lakes, the English
tongue shall be spoken in all possible
purity, free from all dialectic proclivities
and barbarous provincialisms. Not that I
suppose the majority of men will ever
speak in strict accordance with grammati
cal rules, but that barbarisms and corrup
tions may not supplant the good Anglo
But while the study of grammar has an
almost unlimited poorer in causing correct
ness in speech, it has other influences no
les3 momentous. Not only ia it essential
to any one who would attain to compre
hensive reading, or to becoming a person
of general intelligence, but it also exercises
no slight power in the formation of
national character. The language of a
refined people is the vehicle and preserver
of all the nobler thoughts, all the higher
aspirations, and all the beautiful imagery
which the mind can think, to which the
soul can aspire, or which the imagination
can picture. He who understands his own
language has at hi3 command the learning
and . wisdom of his own day and of past
age3. If his iutellect should seek food tor
thought, if his imagination would revel, or
if his patriotism would be aroused, he will
find that his mother tongue has kept in

fgOOU precl vanuu unique (jiauuwuuu :ui
all these desires. It say lor the nrst
time he should be about to exercise the
highest privilege of a citizen, and is in
doubt as to the policy for which he should
exercise his prerogative, he need only turn
to the record of his country and be
informed. But all these privileges are
denied him who, born in our own land,
fails to acquire a proper acquaintance with
his mother tongue.
I know that young men sometimes
excuse themselves or are excused by others
from the study of this branch on the
ground that they will occupy but humble
positions in life. But what should be
said, or rather what should not be said, of
those who use such argument? Not
counting the avenues of wealth and honor
open to all, yet that each one may be fitted
to act his part as i good and intelligent
citizen, the land is dotted with places of
learning, and their doors thrown wide
open and all invited to enter, but you turn
away, saying, "It is not worth while."
There are too many poor readers; too
many who read without being .-able to
grasp the kernel of thought lying beneath
the garb of words. There are too many
who have no idea of the structure of
language ; too many who cling to a system
that docs not deal enough in the relation,
power and government of words. We had
better, after inculcating its fundamental
principles, throw the Arithmetic from the
school room than have the child grow to
