A sunbeam burst throagh-the clouds in the sky, Goldencr'far than the goldenest wine, Warm with the fire of the eun's bright eye, And it burned in the tangled leaves of the vine, ' . , And Tiindled a glow in the clustering grapes, Which seemed in their odor and perfect shapes Like crystal globes of wine. It fell on the leaves of the open book. And flooded the pages I read with gold ; It lay like a smile on the face of the brook, Kissing its dimples, then grew more bold With the village maid who was crossing there, And wove in her tresses of auburn hair ' A web of the richest gold. Swift as an arrow it sped through the wood ; The bluebird lifted his azure wing, And wherever the golden orchards stood There the robin began, to chirp and sing ; And away in the distance it chased the frown From the mountain's brow, where it shone like a crown - On the forehead of a king." Oh ! beautiful sunbeam, haste not away! What do you ther-2 where the diamond shines, . . Hidden far down from the glory of day In the depths of Golconda's glittering mines? It is said that your light, imprisoned, lives In the fair geru's sciutill&nt cells, and give3 TLe Epletdor with which it shines. I have read in old tales ot the buried past, Cf tv.'o armies, which met on the battle - ph-in, Roman and Cymbric, in numbers vast: How i Ley fought till the tild was Leaped with slain, And how all through the day the crimson tide Of battle favored the Cymbric side, Though their dead bestrewed the plain Till t length from out of the clouded Ekiej A suiibcam darted across the world, Blinding the Cymbriai warriors' eyes, And backward their conquering hosts .vere burled And thus in the record of years is told ' How a sunbeam, back in the days of old, Decided the fate of the world. A CHAPTER FOP, WIVES. "Well," said I, one fine morning last week, "I have the prospect of a leisure afternoon a something unusual with rue and, all being well, I will do a little needful shopping; call and pass an hour with my old friend Mrs. AshburtoD, whom j on account of the distance, I have neglec ted of late, and then drop in and take a . friendly cup -of tea vrith my uieee, Clara Whitford." Having completed tny household ar rangements, I accordingly set out after an early dinner, and, the shopping done, made my first call. Mrs. Ashburton's warm welcome, pleasing talk and cheerful fire . side would have proved strong temptations to induce me tor accept her invitation to stay for the evening, had I not felt anxious to see my niece, whose residence was much nearer my own. On arriving at Clara's doer, I was not a little surprised to sec no light ia the front part of the house. "I am afraid they are not at home," thought I, with a regretful mental glance backward to the pretty home picture I had just left. But I was mistaken. A servant came in an swer to my ring at the door bell, and ushered me into the diniDg room, lit the gas, and then went to summon her mis tress. I had ample .time to look about me before Clara made her appearance, and could not help admiring the perfect order and good taste which prevailed in the apartment and it? furniture. I was the more pleased to notice this as my niece, when married, did not piomise to become very notable as a housewife. I was beginning to tire of waiting my brisk walk over, .! felt chilly in the fireless J room when Clara entered, .fastening a little article of dress, evidently just assumed. Iler greeting was most cordial, and yet there was a shade of regret in her tono when, our first salutations over, she said, "Why, my dear aunt, did you not let me know you were coming, and I should have been better prepared to receive you?" "Surely, Clara," I replied, "no prepara tion is needed before you can bestow a cup of tea on so near a relative asT am. Pray do not make my friendly call into a cer emonious visit, or I shall be tempted" to run away again in place of waiting till after tea, and begging Mr. Whitford 's es cort home." . ; 1 "Praj, dear aunt, do not think of such a thing. I will light this fire in a moment EBENSBURG, PA., THURSDAY, JANUARY 26, 1865. and the room will be warm and Comforta ble." So saying, Clara was about applying a light between the bars of the grate, when I stopped her. "You must, have a fire somewhere, my dear," I said, "and where you were sitting when I arrived, will, I am sure, suit me best. It I am to disturb any of your ar rangements," I will leave j-ou forthwith." "Then, if so, aunt, you will have to excuse my taking you into the nursery." "Anywhere t6 a warm fireside, Clara. But is Whitford from home V "No, auaf, ho ij here," replied my niece, her color rising as she spoke. I laughingly congratulated her on her husband's liking for the company of her first-born; but perceiving no evidence of pleasure on her countenance, I asked her if the baby was well. "Oh, yes, quite so, thank 3rou, aunt. -To say tbe truth, it wa3 my doing that we are in tho nursery to night, and Frederick is not too well pleased about it, but it saves so much trouble, aud the other rooms have just been cleaned and put in order, liut do not say a word," she added, as she opened the nursery door. My nephew advanced and- shook me warmly by the hand, aud then, turning to Clara, said, "I hope, my dear, you do not intend to make your aunt a uursery guest. If you do, I shall not wonder it her visits become still more rare." I hastened to assure him that I had been brought there at my own request, aud begged no difference might be made; bur,, quietly ringing the bell, he desired the servant to light the dining room fire, and bring word when it was well burnt. Clara Lit her lip and looked red and uncomfortable, T?hile I, idling still more so, occupied myself ia admiring the baby. I could, however, distinguish easily enough, two or three little articles which couyinced me that a tea equipage had ju.it been removed ; and certainly this was cot what I should have expected to see at Clara's home, knowing the comfortable and even affluent iucme of her husband. I felt sorry that my unceremonious visit should have produced such an alteration in the arrangements ; for I could tell by the production of sundry keys, etc., that many articles not in common use were to be brought out, and the evening meal de ferred, cu my account. Besides, I felt grieved at Mr. Whitford's ill-concealed vexation, not displayed towards me, but his' wife. At length we were summoned to the dining room, and truly a wonderful change had been effected there. A bright fire illumed every corner, ah elegant . tea equipage was on the table; in short, ev erything looked a;? I had hoped at first to find it in accordance with the position of its owners. . Moreover, the pleasant aspect of affairs banished the cloudfrom Mr. Whitford's face, and so agreeably did the time pass, that I quite regretted when obliged to bid my niece "good night." "Good night, dear aunt," said Clara, kissing me affectionately, "do ccme again, but do let me know when to expect you." "And then," added Mr. Whitford, after the door was closed, "everything will "be ready ; the dining room fire will be lighted before your arrival. Dear aunt, what do you think of Clara s new notions of domes tic ecouotny ? When we were first married, she was rather ignorant of household matters ; now, we are so exceedingly orderly and careful that everything is too good to use. Tho 'drawing room first becaa so ; then the dining room under went a thorough renovation, and ' the nursery resorted to for temporary conveni ence during the repairs', has become our regular abode, the others being used only on state occasions; probably our next remove will be into the kitchen. I go into other houses and . find that their masters can ictroduce a friend at any time, with the certainty of causing no embarrassment. In my home, on the contrary, the cajl of relative, even, pro duces quite a revolution; for. plate, china, in facE everything presentable, is laid up in lavender like the rooms. I wish you would say something to Clara on the subject, as I know you possess great influ ence in that quarter." "Have you named the matter, Freder ick," I asked. "Oh, ye?, a thousand times, I but I cannot effect any change, you will be more successful." "I will try, at any rate," said took leave of my nephew-in-law. think : I truss I, as I Having thought over tho matter, 1 arranged my plan of operation. , I decided it would be better to try the effect of an opposite picture on Clara's miud, .beforo giving utterance to any remonstrance, for I well knew that young housewives do not generally relish the pointed interference of their ; elders. I therefore . called on Clara having previously given her due notice of my inUntion to accompany me in a long ramble ; and I contrived to be near Mrs. Ashburton's just as tea-time was approaching, and we were thoroughly tired. "Clara," said I, "what is to prevent our obtaining rest and refreshment ? I can insure you both, and besides, you arc not quite a stranger to 3Irs. Ashburton." "Oh, dear aunt, I could not think of such a thing; we should be sure to cause inconvenience." ."You shall judge for yourself, Clara," I answered; "and if you think so half an hour hence, we will journey homeward." The moment we were admitted, I frank ly told my friend that I had come express ly to claim her oft-tendered hospitality for my niece and self, as we were tired, bu. still had a long walk beforo us. "How glad I am my house lay in your route," replied she. "Tea i3 just coming in, and my husband will be here directly." In a few moments he arrived, and we were all seated, prepared to join in the evening meal. I noticed Clara's gb.iccs at the perfect order which surrounded us, and the ele gant but simple preparations- for the repast. Besides these, it was impossible not to see the thorough comfort diffused aTOund us. "My niece," faid I Mrs. Ashturtcn, "was afraid of cauir:g yju inconvenience by coming unawares, and taking two places at your tea table by storm." A cheery laugh from Mr. Ashburton, and a blight srnile from his wife followed my word. "Mr?. Whitford," said tho gentleman, "I ?.tn the most fortunate fel low in the witM, for nothing ever causes my wife inconvenience; you understand me, I dare say, I mean none of tho.sj domestic invasions which are usually ex pected ta cause a bustle. Sne ha3 a peculiar theory of her own, which she most thor oughly reduces to practice, consequently we are always able to welcome a friend, however unexpected ha may be." Clara blushed, and stammered a few words in reply; and perceiving her con fusion, I changcd'ihe conversation. On our way home, after spending a de lightful evening, my niece was unusually silent ; but at length she asked if I could tell her what Mr. Ashburton alluded to when he said . Here she hesitated. "I understand you, Clara," I answered, ''and I can explain it in a very few words. Mrs. Ashburton says that being sure of tho daily presence of one guest at her tablo whom she wishes to honor above all oth ers, she always prepares for that one, and is of course ready for any visitor, and at any time." "But I saw no guests beside ourselves, aunt." "Did you not? Aud yet the person I allude to was there." "Where ? whom do you mean ?. You are jesting." "Indeed, my dear Clara, lam not. The one whom Mrs.. Ashburton considers wor thy of all honor, is her husband. She says, and 1 think justly, thai she should deem her marriage vow but illy kept, if she made all attractive in the eye of a stranger, and grudged doing so for him whom she has promised to love, honor and obey her husband, and the father of her children." . Clara did not speak in reply, but when we parted, the moistened cheek that touched mine,' couviucid me that the les son was faken home ; and I have no doubt that when L next visit my niece, I shall find li3r opinion is changed as regards the guest mst deserving of honor. O 1 Signs that Failed. Wc all remem ber the story of the inn keeper who grew prouder a he prospered, and taking down his sign of the Ass, put up a portrait of George IV. in its place. - II i 3 neighbor immediately raised, the cast off cfSgy, aud "in this sign he conquered." The first landlord, alarmed at the increasing popu? larity of his rival, and understanding the cause, wrote underneath the grim visage of his Majesty, "This is the real Ass." But a more ludicrous incident of the kind is just now told at the expense of the good Bishop of Llandaff. He took up his abode near the head of Lake Windermere, where the principal inn had been known as the Cock ; but the landlord, by way of compliment to his distinguished neighbor, substituted the Bishop as the new sign.- An inn keeper close by, who had frequent-' ly envied mine host' of -the Cock lor his good fortune in securing a considerable preponderance of visitors, took advantage of the change, and attracted many travel ers to his house by putting up the sigu of the Cock. The landlord, with the new sign was much -l-N c mfittcd at seeing many of his old customers deposited at his rival's establishment. So, by way "of rem edy, he put up in large, red letters', under the portrait of the Bishop,. "This is the old Cock." ' - WILB1IHGT0H. Capture of Fort Fislier A SSg ' nal Victory---Particulars ot the ASTair. Tho following account is given of the operations resulting in the capture of Fort Fisher by our troops : The troops arrived off Fort Fisher on Thursday night, 12th, and on Friday they were all landed, under cover of a heavy fire lrom the squadron. A reconnoissance was made by Uen. Terry on Saturday. A strong defensive line against any of the enemy's " forces which might come out from Wilmington was established, aud held by 4,000 men, principally colored troops, and an assault was determined on. The assault was made on Sunday after noon, at o.SO o'clock. The sea-front of the fort had been greatly damaged and broken by the continuous and terrible fire of the fleet lasting three days. The front was assaulted, at the hour mentioned by a column of seamen and marines 1,S00 strong, under command of Capt. Breeze. They reached the parapet, but after a short conflict, were checked and driven back iu disurur, and were afterwards placed on the defensive lice, taking the place of a brigade which was brought up to rciuforec the assaulting column of troops. Although tho assault cu the front failed, it effectually served to divert tho attentiou of the enemy, and weaken their resistance. !o the attack of Le tiooj s on the other. side. The assault oa the other and moat difficult tide of the fort was made by a column of troops cf the old Tenth Corp-s, 0d by Colonel Curtis, under the immediate supervision of Gener-l Terry. The enemy's force in the fort wa3 over 3,000. The conflict lasted seven hours. The works were so constructed that every traverse afforded the enemy a new defen sive position, from which they had to be driven. They were seven in number, and the fight was carried on from taverse to to traverse for seven hours. . At about 9 o'clock, the enemy were utterly driven 'from the fort, and forced down towards Federal Point, followed by a brigade of our troops, and about l'l o'clock at night, Gen. Whiting surren dered himself and his command to Gen. Terry, unconditionally, as prisoners ot war, numbering over 2,S00, the remainder of tho force being killed and wounded. Our loss is not accurately ascertained, but is estimated at between 700 and 800 killed and wounded, besides the naval loss, which was slight, not exceeding 100 killed and wounded. Xot a L.hip or transport was lost. Early on Monday morning, between G and 7 o'clock, the magazines of Fort Fisher exploded, killing and wounding between 200 and 300 persons. After tho capture of the fort, all the troops wore withdrawn, except one brigade, left in charge of the works. How the explosion occurred ia not known, but Gen. Terry attributes it to accident or neglect. Hoke's division, reported at 500, was at Wilmington. A portion of it was thrown into the fort not long before the assault, and while that was guing on, a demon stration was made by Hoke against our defensive line, but it proved signally un successful. At 11 o'clock Monday mor ning, a heavyT cloud of smoke was observed over Fort Smith, cu the south side ol New Inlet. The naval officer command ing that station reports that the enemy fired their barracks aud evacuated that work. Perfect harmony and concert of action existed between the land and naval for ces, and their respective commanders, Admiral Porter and Gen. Terry, vied iu their courtesies. Indeed, each seemed more anxious to do justice to .the other than to gain anything for himself, nd both unite in the highest commendation of the naval and military officers and the forces engaged. To this harmony of feel ing, and the confidence of the troops, may, perhaps, be attributed in a great degree the success of our attack, with nearly equal numbers, against a resolute enemy in a work unsurpassed, if ever equalled, in strength, and which Gen. Beauregard, a few days before, pronounced impregna ble. The armament of the fbrt was seventy-two guns, some cf large calibre, and rifled, and or.o Armstrong gun. Tho troops in the fort had rations lor sixteen days. Their loss in killed and wounded was between 400 and 500. WILMINGTON AND 1T3 DEFENCES. The city of Wilmington is situated thirty-four miles lrom the mouth of the Cape Fear river, N. C, which is naviga ble for steamboats for a distance of one hundred and twenty miles, to Fayetteville. Forts Caswell and Johnston are situated at Smithville, which is on the west Bide of the Cape Fear, two miles from its NUMBER 16. mouth. The former foriiScatioa was built by tho United States government, of granite masonry, with two tiers of guns in casemates, and one tier c?i barlctte. It was also calculated for an armament of twelve 32-pouuders, twenty 24-poundcrs, four 18 pounders, three field pieces for flanking defences, six howitzers for raking the gorges, six 8-inch heavy howitzers, two 10-iuch mortars in all eighty-seven guns. The work is surrounded by a ditch and advanced works, and is iu every particular a first-class and formidable for tification. It cost the Federal government $571,000. There are minor forts of great strength constructed of sand ou the sea-boach, out side of Caswell, and also others inland within supper ting distance. Fort John son, one of the defenses of the entrance to Cape Fear river, is situated two miles from, the river's mouth. It protects the harbor of Smithville. Close to the present fort, and occupying the site of the present town of Smithville, there was formerly a revo lutionary furl of the same taxc. Fort Johnson mount.- ten guns. Fort Fisher, the mo-t important r f tho works defending the entrance, and over the. capture of whieU the Lotion m now rc jiiting, is t-ituted on Federal. Point, and is one of the largest earthworks in the Confederacy, being properly denomi nated a fortress. It urctehes completely acro.-s a reef, a diUr.ce .f about four hun dred yard cf the point at which it is lo cated, aud commands a Mraigbt sweep, all the sandhills for two miles and a half having been levelled. Its front is stock aded, presenting a perpendicular approach, nearly fifty feet high, and fc-ome of the travcise ::re three hundred feet in diam eter. There is a subterranean connection from one end to the other, perfectly impervious to shot or shell, and the entire garrison could be shifted in security from one flank to the other. This fort is also entirely of sand. Its armament is uneeiualled for racgo and efficiency in the Soulh This work, with its outer batteries and forts, the principal one of which is "Half Moon" battery, commands the beach for six miles along the coast. " . Between Forts Caswell and Fisher, there is a large sand fort variously known as Bald Head and Smith's Island. It is about fifteen miles in length. Upon tho island are a number of strong sand forts, supporting each other. The purpose of thee is not so much to command the channels as to retain possession ot the island, in order that it may not be used by our forces in reducing Fort Caswell. Fort Quarantine is situated on the west side of Cape Fear river, immediately op posite Fort Fisher, and commands the channel of the stream which hutrs the western shore. Fort St. Philip, aT large earthwork, mounting nine heavy suns, is situated in the southern extremity of Ea gle's Island, immediately below Wilming ton. Fort French, a similar, but smaller work, is situated on the cast side of the river, a few miles south of Wilmington. Several water batteries are connecied with this work, and line the river as low down as Star Park. These works, with Fort St. Philip, command a number of obstruc tions which have been pluced iu the river near their location. At Federal Point, now known by the rebels as Confederate Point, a new battery has beeu lately built, and named "Bittery Buchanan," in honor of the rebel Admiral. The totui number of guns in these va rious fortification.-;, all of which must im mediately fall into our possession, is set do?,n at 20S. riAJott-GEXEEAL TEKEV. Alfred II.
