Baodi of ijuerillas and busliwliiukera roamed tlie coulltl, ravagiDg and ipoillng. Tht wnrst paaatona of tho worxt man, obainad llke famUhtng tigen through four yeai'9 of hard disciplinc, were let looso. Only in sttcli isolated spots where there exiated the remnant of an organised confederate forca was there either law or protection for belpleta women and children throughont tlie land. Wliere Slielhy aud l'riee, and Smlth and Ghurohill, and other gallant leadera were then tlie banner of tlie confederacy still floated, and around them still gathered some thousandi of brave and ateadfaat men. 15ut an om inous eloud was npOO cvcry ruan's broWi Hope was nlniost gonc, and each day some raan would ask bimnelf, Why should 1 stay here and help to mount guard when my wife and chil dreu are auflering (iod knows whal? And each night some picket would hiy down his musket, east a look baek at the dying camp-lites of his comrades, aud east himself into the outer dark ness. This practiee became ho alarm iugly frequent that the sternest and most repressive measures were adopted to prevent it. The old Mexican army offlcera, many of whom were in the westcru armies, and whose notions of diseipliue were guiued by service from West Point to Chapultepec, were es peeially severe upon these deserters. " A deserter beeomes in every instance a bushwhacker," they would say, and in too many cases the facts bore out their charge. It was evideut that under the present weakened state of the confederacy dis cipline was more necessary than ever; aud though the men had abundance of food and clothlng aud amnmnition, still they were kept in bounds and al lowed far less leisure and license than when Jackson was winning his laurels in " the valley " and when the bouuie blue tlag floated over a glad aud tri uraphant peoi)lc. (iathered, as has beeu stated, near Marshall, in northeast Texas, were several thousand magtiili ceut veteran troops, men whohad been at Ueltuont, Vicksburg, Sliiloh and with Dick Taylor in his glorious campaign when he crushed JJanks into small frag ments. As a rule these men, used to obey, were uot deserters, but as the llag sank lower and lower toward the black horizou of defeat the fever of de sertion became epidemic among eveu them, aud it began to be customary at morning roll-call to hear uo fuiuiliar voice answer " here," and to have the orderly sergeant, in a voice of suppresscd rage, bid the remaining men to " dress up, there, dress up." So it happuned that the men were paraded one fine spring afternoon on the grassy plateau in front of the tent of the geueral com- manding, aud the chief of thestaff read out No. 1 of a new series of special or ders, to the effect. that any man cauht deserting hereafter would be shot, by order of drum-head court-marlial, etc. The regimeuts broke into companies, and the companies, uuder their orderly sergeauts, rau back iutocamp at double time, muskets on left shoulder and a grim look on their war-worn features. Conversation was rather guarded abottt the camp-lires that evening, each man rather rlistrusting his comrade, and feeliug rather cautious about expressii g his sentiments as to special order Xo. 1. Standiug in front of a large tent ad joining that of the general comniand iug, who had but recently removed his headquarters from Marshall, was a group composed of an offlcer, a ser geant aud a most lovely girl of about eighteen years of age. She seemcd rather pale, and her replies to the of ticer at her side were low in tone and brief as to words. The sergeaut spoke only when addresscd, and a curious ob server might have noticed that when her eyes aud his met they said what no kuown language has ever been able even to feebly translate the language of a passion as pure as the maiden's heart or the mau's honor, and as un dying as the cycles of eternity itself. It was noticeable, too, by a keen ob server that whenever she did addresa blm a light came over her fair face the like of which isseen on neither sea nor land, aud that he in turu gripped the barrel of his musket as if he would snap it in his itrODg lingers. Wall, there was a curious observer present who did reniark on ttiese signs ot sup pressed emotion,and looked alternately at the man and woniau with something like the look he wears who wakes to hear his death warrant read. This was the third person of the little party, Captain tleorge MacGregor, and a ghastly suiile played on his wan fea tures as he addresscd the twain. " Ilose, I aru going to lake Champ ofl for a short walk. May I see you for a nioment before taps?" " Why, yes, certainly, captain. And, ohl Sergeant (,'onway, may I see you for a mouient, too, just after roll-call?" The young sergeaut saluted, bluslied and answered: " It will give nie the greatest pleasure, Miss Fairchild, to wait ou you." The two nien walked away until they reached and passed the outposts. Not u word had been spokeu on either side. Mactiregor sank down on a log, as if wearied, and was silent for some mo meuts. At last Conway spoke: "Whal isit,Mac?" Out here they were no longer ollicer and subaltern. They were, as they had been four years be fore, the beat friends and closest chums at the Virginia Military Iustitute. The words roused MacGregor. He took Conway's uthletic hauu between his own two fragile ones. " Dear old boy," he said, " this war cau't last much longer, and then you will be as free to win her aslwill; with better proBpects, too, for, inde peudent of your birlh and bigh conuec tions, she loves you." Conway satslilla moment. Then he lald, in a voice full of tcars: " Mac, dear old Mac, Ood knows l'm sorry this has bappenea, Bul i do love her!" " I know it. I am nearly gonc now." " ()h, don't say that." " I have no hope or bul little of liv ing. Perhapi with a uiind at ease and auiid other surroundings I might mau age to ' band my grip' for a few years, for I oatUC from liardy stock. Bol I mlgbt as well go. I know slie will never care for nic. Now, my dear fel low, (iod blessyou, aud success to your woolog." Champ Conway groancd and sat illeui; then.apringing up, ha embraoed tttfl man by liirtsidc, and cried: "Mac, yoti alwayi were the noblest fellow on eartb, but I uan't aceept your laotifloti Let each man lake his clianco, and lct her dcclde When the war is over. We will still be friends." " Always friends," echocd tlie cai tain, as liuy turned and slrode baek to thc tent. Whal MacCregor lold lose Fairchild that night Conway never knew until long years afterward. Be lefl the tent as Conway saluted and en tered, "She wants you," whispered Mav Qregor, as he passed him, in a voice so chokcd and hoarse tliat Conway in- voluntarlly turned to detalo him, wlien a clear low voice said: " I'ray come in, sergeaut." In an instanl (Conway had entercd the tent. Ile saluted, and stood before the woman he so passlonately loved. l'resenlly she spoke: ' Will you do me a great favor?" "I will do whateveryou ask." " Don't be rashl I want you to take this letter to a lady in Marshall. Her husband is in great danuer. Ohl It must go to-night, and whom cau I trust but but you?" she added, in a tone so low that he barely caught the sound. Champ was in an awful predicament. Ile had to take charge of a detail of the guard that night, and how could he re fuse her? She who trusted him above the whole army. Xo! if he died for it he would carry that letter. She saw his emotion, but attributed it to anothcr cause. Ile was a gentleman of llneage aud breeding equal to her own, but he was a sergeant only. The barriers of rank he would not break. She rose from her seat and went to him, looking him earnestly in the eye. " Here is the letter," she said. His eyes fell and his breast heaved as that of a man who had been ruuning miles to save his life. " Mr. Conway," she said, " if this mission is disagreeable to you " Ile stopped lier by a gesture. Bbe held out her hand to him. Ile seized it, and, falling on one kuee, kissed it rapturously, aud, springing to his feet, was thrilled aud transformed by the look upon her beautiful face. Without a word he held out bis arms. Without a word, but with a great sob of relief, she crept into them, and looking up into his face she saw there the tnighty desire that llamed in his clear, gray eyes. With a gesture that had all of a maiden's modesty in it and all the bungry pasaion of an abaorbing love. she put her arms anjuud his neck, aud as tbey pressed each other's lips they llved in a paradiae which comes only onceto every man and woman in this world, and that only for a few fleeting aeconda, " Where's the sergeaut?" " Ain't seed him for over an hour." " Grand roun' '11 erround in er niiu ute. W'onder whar he ar, anyhow?" " Reokin he hev deserted, too." " Sam Brown, ef ye say that ergln I'll tbrow yer down au' stomp ye." "Well, now be mout," growled Brown. This is his place, anl I ain't seed him for an hour or more." " Champ Conway '11 turn up all right," said anothcr man at the picket post; but Champ Conway did not turn upall right, and when " grand rounds" had twice come and gone a picket on the road leading to Marshall suddeuly halled Conway as he was walking along in ! lover's dreani aud took him iuto camp. Arrived there, he at once sent for Captain MacCregor, to whom he en truatea a note to be given Miss Fair ebild. Of tlie trip to Marshall aud of his own predicament he said uot a word. Ile had no fears but that he would be able to prove his inuocence, but eveu then the drum-head court was aitting. Sixieen men were to die at dawn, Conway among the number. And all save Conway had deserted in the face of special order Xo. 1. Conway lay in the guard tent the happiest man among 5,000, whilc even then, the proof against him being too overwhelming, the death sentence was being signed by a veteran major, who blubbered as he dashed down the pen. " l know the lad's father; we were inthe old army togcther, and I cau't be lieve it." " It's true, nevertheless," snei red a young cavalry lieutenant, " for 'twas 1 who brought him in." Two bours afterwarda the guard tent was entered by MacGregor. Ile went to Conway and woke him quletly, "Qulckl" he whispered, " you are OOndemned as a deserter. There is no reprieV0 Xo hope. Take my cloak and sword aud cap. Steal oul ; the countersign is ' Pea Kidge,' it has been changed. Bide otT on Selim, whom you will lind ready saddled near the big oak by the spring. Ilurry! no words! I shan't get hurt aud all will be well in a day or two." MacGregor lay in the guard tent re viewing his past life. Ile drew out his note-hook, and by the faint light of tlie flre without he wrote a few lines, re placed the note in his pocket-book and tben prayed fervently but calmly, until he heard the order given in the dark uess yet prevalling to " bring out the prisoner." He heard the old familiar orders. He recognized the voice of the ollicer of the liring detail. Stilling one siugle groan, he pulled the cap down over his face, buttoned up his jacket and went out with the other prisoners, Not a soul suspec.ted he was other than Champ Conway the deserter. Day was just breaking, and the birds in the boagha overhead were beginning their morning hymn as he passed Kobc's tent. She knew nothing of all this, and he was grateful. Why not die now as well as a few months later? Thank Cod! He had made her and the man he loved best happy. Let death come when it would. The men marched Bullenly to their fate. A trench had been duar. They were arranged in line. SUOh thlngl are best over at once. ,Iust as the musketry lit tip the dark WOod SlacGregor pllohed (orward on hltface, his hand thTOWlng a pockcl-book at the feet of the ollicer in charge. What more is there to t 11? He died lo save his friend, whom he knew tobe Innooent. And Hose and 0on way? When I was last in Galveston I ni ver saw such a happy, merry house hold ns theirs was. HUl one day in each year they kccp sacred, and of all their Ireasures a faded photognph of an ollicer in L'ray uniform and a soiled DOte are most prtciously prised by them.

ROLLINS & SON, Manly Chrlitlanlty, To be manly is to be Itrong, nnd if we would be really strony; we must be iteadfaat in the rattb, nnd eonatantly watch agalnat ull that would lure us from it. Some people nowadnys seeni to Imagine that it is very mnnly to DB rade their doubts about the tiuth of Ihe Bible and to sit in judgment on the oracles of Ood. To do so seems so lion est, so intelligent, so independeul ; but is it so? Kvery anxious sceker after trulh is sure to meet with doubts and difSoultiea in rellgion, and they are to Ihe mind like gymOMtiO exercises to the body a mcans of expandint; our mental and spiritual energiee and dc veloping our moral strength. IJut to be content to live in an atniosphere of uncertainty about matters of the decp eat moment to ourselves and others, kttd never to slrive to risc out of it, this is a proof of weakness of character, while it imperils our eternal safety. In fact, indeoialon in relitjion, whatever may be its cause, is decidedly unmanly. "A (louble-minded man," writes St. .Tames (i:8), " ia unstable in all his ways." One who can not make up his mind as to what course he will take in life and which master he will serve, but is always halling between two opin lona, is sure to act feebly and incon sistently. Men will have noconlidence in either his judgment or his priu ciples. BelonglDg distinctly to neither the church nor the world, he is viewed with suspicion by both. Tossed about by opposing currents, he is ready to be carried down by the stream much fartber from the right and safe course than be ever intendcd. Jamesthe First of England and the Sixth of Scothmd was a man of this stamp. Tbougb con scious of this fatal defect, he is saitl to have, on a certain occasion, appointed a miniater to preach before him who was aingularly apt in his choice of suit able texts. The preaclur, with the ut most gravity, aunouuced his tcxt as from James the first and sixth, " Ile that wavereth is like a wave of the sea, driven with the wind and tossed." The witty monarch felt the force of the al luaion, and said aloud, " He is at me already." AVhat effect the discourse produced upon his mind we are not told, but it would be well if all waver ers would take the warning to thern selves. Rev. W. Burnet.

A few years before thc death of Mr. Mark LemOD, the editor of the London I'tinch, he made the followitii; coufes sion to a friend, who vouehea for it, and who was remonstrating with him for the ridicule which, iu that journal, he had persistently poured upon the frieuds of the Lord's day. In reply to a remark that on this suhject the work ing people seemed to be iu advance of Chriatiana, and that if the barriers which BUrrouud the Lord's day were broken dowu, ultiniately they, the workmen, would have to do seveu days' work for six days' pay, Mr. Leruon said: " Xow I will make a o n feaaion to you which I have not made to others.
