THE OAK’S SEC1ET. It was wIiuii Sliurman was “march ing through Georgia.” A house which seemed, from its outward ap pearance, to have been closed and | barricaded for defense, or deserted I altogether, was surrounded by per I haps a dozen soldiers. “Get an ax,” cried one, “and we j j will break in the doors.” He had scarcely ceased speaking j before a dozen blows shivered the ! panels of the oaken door and made ! an entrance for the crowd and one after another they filed in. The house had indeed been desert ed by its former occupants. Much of the furniture had been removed— certainly all the silver plate and oth | er valuables, for nothing of that character was visible. The men ! searched every room in the house, but found nothing to interest them until they reached the cellar. “Here we are!” cried one, “wine in abundance; the rarest brands. I’ll wager!” If wine was their object, they had accomplished it with little trouble. The cellar was stocked with it; there w as enough and to spare. Mottle af ter bottle was handed out, until at j last the cellar was rilled of its store. I'lie men held high carousal in the spaciou- dining hall. They drank long and deeply, and what they could not consume or take away with them tin-\ destroyed on the spot. 1 lien they went reeling on their way. It had been proposed to burn the house, but this proposition, for some reason, was overruled hy one of the party -the youngest of them all. “No,” he said, “why should we hurn it? It has afforded us pleas ant entertainment, anil besides it may be some poor fellow's home who has lost everything else.” It was a little strange that this young man slipped away from his reeling companions on-the way to camp and returned to the house they had dekerted. lint they would not have thought it strange could they have divined his object. II ■ retraced his steps. In through the shattered door he passed and de scended to the cellar. A light dis closed the fact that in one corner a block of the stone lloor had been re moved and replaced again, evidently in a hurry , for at one end it protrud ed above (lie level of the Hour. His keen eye had detected this, while his companions were making merry over the wine, and it had excited his cu riosity and suspicion. With tlio assistance of an ax lie succeeded in removing the stone. The earth beneath it bore evidence of having been recently disturbed— it was sofi and fresh. There was a spade in the cellar. lie seized it and went to work. He did not work long before he discovered a small iron box—small, but heavy. It required some strength to lift it but once out in the light with it there was no doubt in the voting man's mind that it contained valuable treasure, for did not the gold rattle us lie lifted it '■ Would he open it there? No! 11 is companions might miss him and return. He resolved to be more se cret. Witli some dilMetilty he lifted the box and placed it on his shoul der. then, taking the ax also, lie passed out of the house and into the wood bevond. twilight we- coining on. and with it the heralds of a storm—low. ruui bli g thunder and dark clouds gloom ing in tli ■ north. Into the wood the thief staggered with Id* h ivy bur den -into the shadow and the silence where he mid his secret would be safe, *• Thief!” It is a bitter, burning word. He seemed to hear it at every ucp. the wind seemed to hiss it in hi- ear; I lie thunder roared it to the world; the sky scowled at him through the trees aud sent its black i I I : est shadows to hide his crime from sight. “Thief!” At the base of a great, towering oak lie threw his burden down. “It is a lie!” he cried, looking around the place as if expecting an audience and in answer to an accusation. “It’s a lie. I never was a thief! All’s fair in war!” Then lie knelt down and pried the iron lid open with an ax. (fold, sure enough—gold and sil ver amounted to thousands of dol lars! Into the glittering mass he trust his hand—the hand of a thief! “A curse upon it!” he cried, throwing back the coin and spurning the box with his foot. “I’ll bury it. here.” In the gloom, where was fast deepening into darkest night, lie dug a grave for the ill-gotten gold and buried it deed. He dared not touch it then—his conscious, his honor, his honesty gained the mastery for the time. He turned to go, but he had not retreated twenty yards when his eyes were blinded by a keen tlasti of light, followed by a deafening peel of thun der. A limb from the oak, where lie had hid the treasure, came crashing down. He turned and saw the lightning had struck the tree and ringed a track around it. “I shall know that tree again.” tie said, “and remember this scene —this incident, forever!” And then lie passed out of the wood. Out of the wood and out of (Georgia —passed on with the victorious army, lighting the battles of the l uion, un til peace was declared and victors and vanquished laid down their arms and sought their long-forsaken homes. Hut the secret of that treasure, hidden in the Georgia woods, weigh ed heavily upon the soldier’s mind. Nearly two years had passed since he had seen that thunder-blasted treee where lie had left a fortune. Had any one discovered it? It was possible. Hut perhaps they had not. The oak might still be guarding its secret faithfully. Ho resolved to return to Georgia. If the gold was there, and the right fid owner could he found, he would return it to him. If no one could prove clear title to il, why—it would be his. So, with these thoughts he return ed to the scenes he remembered so wi-11 returned to find the old house standing, as on the day when his | reckless companions forced an en trance and caroused within its walls. I In the neighborhood he obtained the information that the house was owned by Col. lfroadwell, a veteran I of tin- Mexican war. a widower, who lived there with his only daughter; that he had also lived there during the war, and was now greatly re duced in circumstances. He formed the colonel’s acquain tance and that of his lovely daughter, j More than this, he made his abode i at the house, for the old colonel took j a fancy for him. He saw that the little family was in straightened circumstances, anti believing that lie hail contributed to their poverty, the thought cut him to the heart. An old man had, per haps, known want; a young and lovely girl who had suffered, and through him! “Colonel,” he said, one afternoon, as they sal together in the hall, “did you lose much by the war?” “Everything, sir!” said the Colo nel, “except this house, which they inadvertently overlooked. My great est loss was in money. 1 had an iron box full of gold and silver buri ed in my cellar, but they found it.” “Thief!” The echoos came back to him from the past. Hut lie resolved that if that box could he found, the wronged and rightful owner should have it. The next day lie set out alouc to that well-remembered wood. The scarred oak was still standing. He knew the very spot where he buried the gold, though it was now greatly overgrown with foiiage, lie returned to the house. The Colonel was walking in the garden with his daughter. “Colonel.” he said, "l want you and Miss Hattie to come with me and ask no questions. I had a strange dream last night, and l want you to humor me in it. Here's uj spade. Now, where will we And an ax?” The Colonel laughed and Ins daughter looked amused. “We were going for a w'alk, any way,” he >aid ; “so we’ll humor you, and ask no questions, unless Hattie there- ” “Oh, I have all a woman’s curiosi ty,” said that lady, laughing, “hut I’ll obey orders for once, and keep silent.” With an ax and spade upon his shoulder, Hrashwcll—for such was his name—led the way into the wood, the Colonel and his daughter following in amused silence. Arriving at the oak, IJrashwell said, throwing off his coat: “Now, j not a word while I work!” They stood by in silence, the | daughter leaning on her father’sj arm. Hrashwcll cleared awav the under brush and then he began to dig. He was greatly excited. His whole frame trembled as he worked. Presently the spade struck a hard, j unyielding substance, and the next moment the iron box was revealed! i “Look!” cried the excited man, i “your gold! your gold ! The iron box, with all its glittering wealth!”) The Colonel and his daughter drew near. They were excited now. “Surely,” cried the old man, I “surely, it is the very same! And yet—we must be dreaming. Can you lift it to the light?” “Aye, that 1 can!” cried Hrash wcll. as with a great effort he raised the heavy box. Then he lifted the lid l,Sec!” he shouted, rapturously, “your gold! Safe as on the day when you buried it in your cellar! Safe and not a farthing gone!” The girl uttered a glad cry of de light. But her father was affected differently. His hand trembled, his face assumed a deathly pallor, he reeled and would have fallen, had not his daughter throw n her arms around him. and Hrashwcll hastened to his side. “God bless yon!” was all he could say. ‘•(iod bless you!” echoed tlicgirl, • clasping and kissing Krashwcll’s hand iu the ferver of her grati tude. u(iod grant that it may be so!” cried 15rasliw. il, as the Colonel be come more composed, “and that lie may forgive me, too! •‘Col. Broadwcll,” he continued, “his voice trembling with emotion, i “it was 1 who took your gold from . the house up yonder and buried it lu re. I did not have the heart to touch it—my honor forbade it! I re-! turned to (ieor.ia with but one pur- i pose—to make restoration. I did not know you in those days of war and desolation; I did not know you, j or—your daughter—” He came near breaking down, but. rallied and went on : “But I know you now, and i kuow her—thank (iod! It was I who saved your dwelling from the tlames, and now 1 give you back your gold !” “(iod bless you ! (iod bless you!” cried the Colonel, shaking his hand heartily. “And let me say the same,” cried Hattie, laying her hand upon his arm, “and thank you from my heart.” “That Is more than all to me,” said Urashwell, and he felt his eyes grow moist. “I am a happier man to-day than I have ever been be fore.” “And so am I,” the Colonel said, taking him by the hand. “And 1 am a happier woman,” cried Hattie. “We are all happy.” (ireater happiness was still in store for Private William Brashwell. But he did not gain it until the “Rebel” Colonel gave his daughter to the “Yankee” soldier.—[Frank L. Staunton.

He was also a lawyerjof good ability,: but his tastes, inclinations and am bitions led him in other channels. In the war between the Stales lie was a brave soldier of the South, in peace he was an honorable and useful citi zen, true to ever} obligation of a public or private character.

He was a man of ability, relined taste and irreproach able diameter.—-[Spirit of Hope. The announcement of the death of Hon. Leo. 1*.

He was a profound thinker aiu] a jurist of ex traordinary ability. He was a true poet, and wrote with a purity of dic tion and beauty of rythm that places his production- in the category of the masters in the divine art. His heart never grew old aud life was evident ly as sweet to him in his (52nd year, aud as full of promise as when his youth was in its earliest bloom.

Smoote, of Prescott, suddenly died. He had been in bad health for some time, but his death was not expected so soon and in such a manner. Judge Smoote had recently returned to his home at Prescott from a trip in Tex as for his health. * * * The death of Judge Smoote is much re gretted. and his loss to the State is great.

God rest his soul in peace. — [Hatesvillc Guard. The news comes that Gcorgo P. Smoote is dead. He suddenly “passed to the farther shore,” from his home at Prescott, on the morning of the 22nd inst. I'he writer of these lines, who knew the deceased well and loved him, feels, as only the human heart can feel under such circumstances, the utter impuisanee of words to express the emotions that stir from the innermost depths. As tlie keen knife wounds, as the cruel blow dazes and stuns and sends the victim blinded and reeling to the ground, so does this alllictinn pierce and lacerate the soul. It is a solemn and an awful thing to stand in the presence of death, even when it has come not suddenly or una wares; hut to greet your friend to day, as it were, to lay aside a letter just written you by him in Jiis pleas ing style ami happy mood, and at the next moment pick up a newspa per and nave that inexplorable mes senger tell you he is gone from mor tal sight and sense forever—how dark, how bewildering, how hopeless does all life then seem!
