Over the awful ocean Her signal gnus pealed out ; DearGoil! wus that thy answer, , Prom the horrors round about f ' 1 " A voice cumc down the wild wind "Ho! aliip nhoy !" its cry 'Our stout Three Hulls of Glasgow Shall stand till daylight by ?' Hour after hour crept slowly, Yet on thu heaving swells Tossed up and down the ship-light The lights of the Three Hells. And ship to ship made signals ; Man answered back to man ; While oil, to cheerand hearten, The Three Hells nearer ran, And the captain from her tatfrail Sent down his hopeful cry ; "Take heart ! hold on!" lie shouted, " The Three Bells shall stand by '." All night across tho w ater The tossing lights shone clear; All night Ii" in reeling tall'rail The Three lit lis scut her cheer. And when the dreary watches Of storm und darkness passed, Just as the wreck lurched under, All souls were saved at last. Sail on three Hells, forever, Iu grateful memory sail ! Ring on, Three Hells of rescue, Ahnvu the wave and gale! As thine, in night nnd tempest, 1 hear the master's cry, And tossing through the darkness, Thu light of God draw nigh. John (i.

The iimbnscaile mil tin' inutile peered at each other, Tlm iioader did not dash forward, did not hurl his Ip'moiis to the front and move on in the pomp which oathered about the " inarch to Hn sea." It was a pressure, heavy and pon.leroiis as the slow approach of a leviathan: a inassnit; of some- thini;' which seeiuerl too immense to bo moved except by inches so Crcat ttnil compact that tho van Kiiurd and tho rear rank might have signaled each other by a wave of a hat, over the forest of bayonets and nodding heads that bent for ward. Tho heavy intoimiiotm of the gnus shook tbo earth and ap pealed to lien veil, anil the sear-worn mass of humanity moved up another step. In front of them, prim and paimtdeciinated nnd iinplumaped, stood the forlorn hope, of a cause around the baiiiier of Which not a victorious shout had bej-n raised for mouths. At every" movement made bv the mitihty mass in ioiit of this phestly line, it fell back, but each receding step was markH by the same tlesjmnition with wliich a giant shorn ot his strength would po to his death. It was not fiecause it was unCnptained, for it tever wo- vered in Its rlevotion to tlio pray chief, to whom it looked hi a faith that was nublime enouplij had it been placed in God, to have leveled the hills of the earth to the surface. It was not because it had bepun to question the ripht of the struggle, for that, no matter what thoAerdict of historv may be, it never iid. On the contrary, as the tefple Wippled tt ikI fell by piecemeal; the battered and defeated battalion' for to such had the legions been rednoed only knelt about the shrine to consecrate, it the more with the incense ol tlifir belief in its justice. , To the victor, iudeed, belong tho 8Miils. The treasures ot theicHp tured fortress are his, aud liider tho rule) whether it be r!gh or w rong is not the question ; it U his to sit down iiion the rnins otthe vanquished and sing the sons; of triumph in the sunburst of Ills io- VeRs.

Jut to 'listory, calm and impar tial history, when tho smoke ot the field has vanished and the flown a have been sprinkled upon tlio dead, and the anthem ot peace girdles the earth, and every man is ut his own fireside to history is given the in alienable light to weave thcchstplct for the heroic. That time has not yet come. As these contending hosts faced each other iu tho forest, victory seemed almost merciful to defeat, the "nearer, closer, deadlier" tramp of the invading host broke on tiie faithful and faithless tu Kichuioud alike for both were there. In any other hour the petty contention of the strife would have been received, perhaps, with some excuse. Jiut lit tins Hour it win a curse to the man who bickered, nnd a shame on the cause for which the tatered ami defeated lines in gray were struggling with the praud old Lee at the head. Mr. Davis might have known, or ought to have known, that iu such an hour the country cared not so much for his successor, not so much for paper legislation, as it cared for tho unifi cation ot every contending element, tor bread, tor mercies of tho hos pital, and for a little more untrain meling of bis steady hand on the field which at the inception of the war had shaken its gauntlet in the face ot Washington aud made it tremble. At this moment the shout of the victors startled the despairing ones behind the beleagued gates. Among that number was one of the ema ciated craftsmen ot the sinking ship ot state ; a man w ho was dying, whose lite had dwindled away like the fortunes of the unhappy and unsuccessful contention. This man was Col. Lud. l'eyton, a Confede rate senator from the State of Mis souri. When Gen. Price and Clayborne F. Jackson assembled the army and such portions ot Jackson's legisla ture as chose to follow him from Jufterson City, Mo., to an unheard of village in the sand hills of the State, and there assembled tho lat ter guarded by the former, they oted the State of Missouri out ol the Union, and sent greeting to Jeff. Davis that Mr. Lincoln would not get a single man from the State to carry on an inilioiy crusade against the South. To this end all of the formalities of legislation were enacted, and senalors were elected to represent Missouri iu the upper halls at luchtnonil. ONK OK TIIESK WAS TEUTON. A more singularly gifted genius it would have been difficult to find. And hail not that cloud of war came upon the laud, under anything like favorable circumstances tne fame ot this man would have ex tended across the continent. Tall as an Indian warrior; simple as tin hounding grey-hound ; complexion as swarthy as a Spaniard ; si heart as brave as a ureat heart must always be ; sometimes emtio as the ribbon of lightning that threads the course across a storm cloud quicker than thought, and-v itli a voice that rang like a trumpet or was gentle as a maiden's prayer, as thu occa sion called l'eyton was the son of as bright a promise as ever gave birth to genius. lie had come out from a village that nestled mining the prairie flowers of the frontlet, where he had been a pedagogue, a lawyer, a dancing master at times in the backwoods, from sheer eccen tricity ; reckoned " the Meilt fiddler that ever handled bow it man who was a courtier even in those long-ago days, when the belle of Kentucky, who had "gone West," entertained her bean at the loom instead ot the piano; a quasi-physi- ciau, witli no pretensions except that of common sense, in which he had such an abiding faith, aud which made a hero of him once when the cholera spread havoc in this country, aud he mounted his horse and rode from fiii in-liouse to fariii-bouse; a guest at every hearth stone ; everybody's counsel in court and iimiu the old play ground of a school house that is still standing under a stately oak, this sou of genius wjpnt at the noon recess, and rolling upon the grass .'capered nimbly,'' and with the glee of a boy, for the amusement of tho bevy f children thtft signaled his coming with fttit'U fthouts and peals ot ge'iuiue laughter as cliiltireit only know. He was a combination pe culiar to the West, and of such as gave the lamented Lincoln so much personal popularity and magnetism. With all, ho had the ugliest face upon which human eyes erer stared. He cast his fortaucS with his State w lieu it went ont of the Union, as he Biiposct. On his election I the occasion was made one joy, and he harangued the troops aud the "State" with one of bis fervid btir;t of genuine eloquence for which lie wus so noted, and which ever brought up to his bearers; who were Kcntiickiaim for the most part, that "Llarry of Ashland never could beat that." The night npon which he was elected be left on horse-back, accompanied by an es cort, for a suiut on the Mississippi, here he embarked on a steamer for New .Orleans. The guaid inloiiurd the cajdam of tho " steamboat", as trie staging was shoved out, whom they had the honor of presenting' as his guest. The captain conducted him to his own stateroom, . und us the steamer rounded for down stream, the long, graceful, ugly .and' accomplished Missounan stepped uikhi the htir ricau roof, waved 'his sombrero to the guard on horseback who re turned the salute with the rebel yell. A tiny lAinreilrate nag was run up on the j ck-staff, and under it the deck bauds assembled, below a band of negroes, and as the pad dies of the steamer sent the waters ot the Mississippi dashing back against either shore, thev snug of "Dixie's Land" and "Carry Me Hack to Ole Virginny." The mounted guard on shore scampered oil iu thethicket, and the steamer plowed her way gracefully on to the Crescent City. Such was the election and the departure of Missouri's first Senator to the "rebel" capital. There was always an antagonism between Mr.Davisand the members from the West, aud this led to es trangeness, which engendered bit terness. Mr. Davis was of the opinion that west of the Mississippi was of but little coiisetltience', and when it produced an army, the Dghting record of which will live w hen Mr. Davis has been forgotten, he wished it transferred to the gulf department or sent to Richmond. Against these schemes Col. l'eyton, tho member from Missouri, arrayed himselt with his accustomed vigor aud Western impetuosity. The majority overruled him. The dav ot misfortune came upon the cause. .One disaster followed upon another, -until they seemed like a myriad of winged omens of evil upon the sky. Slowly and surely the coils ot the victor were being drawn abotitthe walls of Richmond. There was no communication be tween the capital and the tried and famishing men of the trans-Missis sippi department. Peyton was cut off from the people whom ho loved so well, and had incurred the dis pleasure of the Davis autocracy. W hen the wilderness was encoun tered he aro e from a sick bed nnd walked over to the executive de partment to make an appeal to Davis tor the South. The two men met iu a dimly-lighted room. Davis was pacing the room like achafUug and encompassed beast, Peyton stood before him like a skeleton clad iu the armor of gloom. When the angry duel of words was over and Duvts sat in his chair, lie asked, " What would you have the gbv- emuieut do t" "Do I do!" exclaimed the Mis souri senator with nil his soul's em phasis thrown upon the words. "Dol Mr. President; niitnir the gates tlf your capital. Call Lee and his men back. Pack up this d d skeleton that you call government, put it away, turn your traps over to 15ob Lee mi let him taketliem South where the West will join your waning fortunes in a triumphant march. They are ready anil they are as the leaved in their forests. Do f Great Clod ! Are you going to sit here with Jfthnston cut oft, with Leo being pounded to death and no road open ! Do f There A Shelby in the West, and Dick Taylor with an army the spirit of which is yet unbroken, and eager for the chance to join you." Mr. Davis never re plied; and Peyton walked out iu the night, The sky was black, except where the bombs were circling it with their cone like blazes, and the distant cannonade of the invader broke upon the Southern wind like the tocsin of inevitable despair. The senator sought his room and when the morning reveille broke upon the an and a good old South ern negress went to call "do massa," she found him sitting iu bis chair, his cloak about him closely, his head upon a table, and his heart, which was broken, had ceased to beat. There was a face in Missouri that w ithered nnd grew old long before it should. A heart that waited for the "conquering hero" to return. It was faithful even unto death, and then went away without a murmur. The flowers that had waited npon the altar withered: the wedding- bells were turning, and the uuptual ring was tinned unoer a mound with another wearied and broken heart; One of the School boys who used to romp with this singular character on the old play ground iu Missouri lives in Chicago, and lie is responsi ble for the truth of this story, which is uot one of fancy; Thu fillowine li'ttrt is aelpctl from hnu.ireoN on tile in the oflion of Mossi.
