Official CUr and Cannir Paper. TO BUSINESS MEN. Dr. Talmage Discourses to Amer ican Merchants and Traders. Th Value of a Reputation For lluilntu Integrity-Disaster Rare to Follow Iniquitous Htrataitem Trade and ltellglnn Not Inimical. In a lato sermon at Brooklyn to busi ness men, Rov. T. De Witt Talmae an-, nounced as his text Proverbs xx, 14: "It is naught, it is naught, sal th the buyer; but when he is gone his way, then he boasteth." Dr. Talmage said: Palaces are not such prisons as the world imagines. If you think that the only time kings and queens come forth from the royal gates is in procession and gorgeously attended, you are mis taken. Incognito, by day or by night, and clothed in citizens' apparel, or the dress of a working . woman they oonie out and see the world as it is. In no other way could King Solomon, the au thor of my text, have known every thing that was going on. From my text lam sura he must, in dlsgnlso, some day have walked Into a store of ready made clothing, in Jerusalem, and stood near the counter and overheard a con versation between a buyer and a seller. The merchant put a prico on a coat, and the customer began to dicker and said: . "Absurd! that coat in not worth what yoa ask for it. Why, just look at the coarseness of the fabric! See that spot on the collar! ltnsldes that It does not fit Twenty dollars for that? Why, It isn't worth more than ten. They . bave a better artlclo than that, and for cheaper price down at Cloathem, Fltem A Brothers, Healdos, that, I don't want It at any price, (lood morning." Hold," says the merchant; "don't go off In that way. I want to soli you that V coat ! I have tome payments to make i and I want tho money. Come now, how much will you glvo for that coat?" 'Well," says the customer, "I will split the difference. You askod 920, and I said $10. Now, 1 will give you SIS." "Well," says the morchant, 'It's a great sacrifice, but take It at that price." Then 8olomon saw the customer with a roll under hi arm start and go out and enter his own place of business, and Solomon In disguise followed blm. He heard the customer as he unrolled the coat say: "Boys, I have made a great bargain. Iiow much do you guess I gavo for that coat?" "Well," says one, wishing to compli ment his enterprise, "you gave $30 for It" Another says: "I should think you got it cheap if you gave !5." "No," says the buyer, In triumph, "I got it for t15. I beat him down and pointed out the imperfections, until I really made blm believe It was not worth hardly any thing. It takes mo to make a bargain. .Ha! Ha!" , O, man, you got the goods for less than they were worth by positive falsehood; and no wonder when Solomon went ' back to his palace and had put off bis vdlsguliie that he Bat down at his writing desk and made for all ages a erayon ketch of you: "It Is naught, it is naught, saith the buyer, but when he Is gone his way, then he boasteth." There are no higher styles of men In all the world than thoso now at the bead of merchandise in Brooklyn and New York and la the other great cities of this con tinent Their casual promise la as good as a bond with piles xf collaterals. Their reputation lor Integrity is its well established as that of Petrarch residing1 in the family of Cardinal Colonna, and when there was great disturbance in the family the Cardinal called all his peo ple together and put them under oath to tell the truth, except Petrarch, for when he came up to swear the Cardinal put away his book and said: "As for you, Petrarch, your word is snfflclont" Merer since the world stood have there been so many merchant whoso transac tions can stand the test of the Ten Com mand mo n to. Such bargain makers are all the more to be honored becaaxe they have withstood, year after year, tempta tions which have flung many so flat, and fluDf them so bard they can never re cover themselves. While all positions In life havo powerful besetments to evil there are specific forms of allurement which are peculiar to each occupation and profession, 'and If will be useful to ' speak of the pnculiar temptations of business men. First, as in the scene of the text, bnslaess mei are often tempted to sac rifice plain truth, the seller by exagger-' atlng- the value of goods and the buyer by depreciating them. We can not but ad id Ire an export salesman. See how be first Induces tho customer lato a mood favorable to a proper considera tion of the value of the goods. He shows himself to be an honest and frank sales nan. How carefully the lights are ar ranged till they fall Just right upon the fabric! Beginning with goods of me dium quality he gradually advances toward thoso of more thorough make and of more attractive pattern. How he watches the moods and whims of his uUmer! With what perfect calmness be take the order and bows the pur chaser from bis presence, who goes way having made up bis mind that he has bought the goods at a price which will allow him a living margin when he drain sells them. The goods were worth whet the salesman said they were. ad were sold at a prlee which will not make It necessary for the house to fall very tea years in order to flx up things. But with what burning indignation ww think of fee Iniquitous stratagems by which goods are sometimes disposed of. A fiance at the morning paper how the arrival at one ot ear hotels of reung nrchant front pne of the in laotj, el tie.' He la . aoomparattve stranger in the greatclty and, of course, must be shown around, and it will be the duty of some of our eaterprlslng bosses to escort bin, lie is a large pur etisner and has plenty of ' time and money, and It will pay to be very attent ive. The evening is spent at a place of doubtful amusement They go back to aha hotel, flaring just come to town they must of eoerue, drink. A friend from the same mercantile establishment drone la, and usage aad generosity sug cest that they must drink. . Business prospects are talked over and the stranger is warned againstcertaln dllap- 1 Da ted mercantile establishments that re about to fall, and for such kindliness and magnanimity of caution against the dishonesty of other business houses, of course It la expected they will and so ahev do thev take a drink. Other mer chants lodging in adjoining rooms find It hard to sleep for the clatter of decant ers and the coarse carousal of these "hall fellows well met" waxes louder, But they sit not all night at the wine cud. They must see the sight. They stagger forth with Cheeks flushed and eyes bloodshot The outer' gates of hell open to let in the victims. The wings of lost souls flit among the lights and the steps of theearousers sound with the rumbling thunder of the damned. Farewell to 11 the sanctities of home! Could mother, sister, father, slumbering in the Inland home, in some vision of that night catch a glimpse of the ruin wrought they would read out their hair by the roots and bite the tongue until the blood spurted, shrieking out; "Uod are hlmf What supposo you. will ceme upon ouch biiHiness establish ments? and there are hundreds of them in the eitloa. They may boast of fabu lous sales, and they .may bave an un precedented run of buyers, and the name of the house may be a terror to all rivals, and from this thrifty root there may spring up bianch houses in other cities, and all the partners of the firm By move Into tUeij mansions and drive their full-blooded span, and tho fam llios may sweep the streets with the in oh t elegant apparel that human art ever wove or oarthly magnificence, ever achieved. j But a curse, is gathering somewhere, for thoso men, and if it does not seize ; bold of the pillars and in ono wild run bringdown tho temple of commercial glory, it will break up their poaco and ; they will tremble with sickness and bloat with dissipations, and, pushed to the precipice of this life, thoy will try and hold back, and cry for help, but no help will come; and thoy will clutch their gold to tako it along with them, but It will be snatched from 1 lu-ir grasp, and a volco will sound through their soul: "Not a farthing, thou beggard spirit!" While we admire and approve of all acuteness and tact In the sale of goods we must condemn any process by which a fabric or product Is represented as possessing a value which it really does not have. Nothing but sheer falsehood can represent as perfection hoots that rip, silks that speedily lose thoir luster, calicoes that Immediately wash out, stoves that crack under the first hot firo, books Insufficiently bound, carpets that unravel, old furniture rejuvenated with putty and glue and sold aa having been recently manufactured, gold watches made out of brass, barrels of fruit tho biggest apples on top, wine adulterated with strychnine, hosiery poorly woven, cloths of domestic manufacture shining with foreign labels. Imported goods rep resented as rare and hard to get be cause foreign exchange Is so high, rolled out on the counter with matchless dis play. Imported Indeed! but from tho factory in the next street Again, business men are often tempt ed to make the habits and customs of other tradors tbolr law of rectitude. There are commercial usages which will not stand the test of the last day. Yet men in business are apt to do as their neighbors da If the majority of the traders in any locality are lax In prin ciple, the commercial code In that com munity will be spurious and dishonest There are a hundred practices prev alent in the world of traffic which ought nover to beoome the rule for honest men. Their wrong aoes not make your right Sin never becomes virtue by being multiplied and admitted at brokers board or merchants exchange. Because others smuggle a few things In passenger trunks, because others take usury when men are In tight places. because others deal In fancy stocks, be cause others palm off worthless indorse ments, because others do nothing but blow bubbles, do not therefore, . be overcome of temptation. IIollow pre tension and fictitious credit and com mercial gambling may awhile prosper, but tho day of reckoning cometh, and In addition to the horror and condem nation of outraged communities, the curse of God will come, blow after blow. Ood's will forever and forever Is the only standard of right and wrong, and not commercial ethics. Young business man, avoid the first business dishonor and you will avoid all the rest When Pompey, the warrior, wanted to take possession of a city, and they would not open the gates, he persuaded them to admit a sick soldier. But the sick soldier after a while got well and strong, and he threw open the gates and let the devastating army come in. One wrong admitted into the soul may gain in strength until, after awhile. It flings open all the avenues of the immortal nature, and the surrender is complete. Again, business men are sometimes tempted to throw off personal responsi bility upon the moneyed Institution to which they belong. Directors in banks and railroad and insurance companies sometimes shirk personal responsibility underneath the action of the corpora tion. And how often, when some bank ing house or financial institution ex plodes through fraud, respectable men in the board of directors say: "Why, 1 thought all was going on in an honest way, and I am utterly confounded with this rolsdemoanor!" The banks, and the fire and life and marine insurance companies, and the railroad companies will not stand up for judgment in the last day, but those who In them acted righteously will receive, each for blm self, a reward, and thoso who acted the part of neglect or trickery will, each for himself, receive a condemnation. Un lawful dividends are not clean before Qod because there are those associated with you who grab just as big a pile as you do. Again, many business men have been tempted to postpone their enjoyments and duties to a future season of entire leisure. What a sedative the Christian religion would be to all our business men If, Instead of postponing Its uses to old age or death, they would take it in' to the store or factory or worldly en gagemonts now! It is folly to go amid the uncertainties of business life with no Uod to help- Many, although now comparatively straightened in worldly circumstances, have a goodly establishment In the fu. ture planned out They have in imag ination built about twenty years ahead a house in the country not difficult of access from the great town, for they will often have business or old accounts to settle and investments to look after. The bouse is large enough to accommo date all their friends. The balls are wide and hung with pictures of bunting scenes and a branch of antlers, and are comfortable with chairs that can be rolled out on a veranha when the weath er is inviting, or set out under some of the oaks that stand sentinel about the bouse, and rustling In the cool breeze, and songful with the robins. There Is just land enough to keep them interested, and its crops ot almost fabulous r'ebseas springing MP under appli cation of the best theories to be found in the agricultural journals. The farm Is well stocked with cattle and horses and sheep that know the voice and haye a kindly bleat when one goes forth to look at them. In this blissful abode their children will be Instructed In art and science and religion. This shall be the old homestead to which the boys at college will dlrecf their letters, and the hill on which the house stands will be sailed Oak wood or Ivy HU1 or pleasant Retreat or Eagle Eyrie. May the future have for every business man bore all that and more be side. But are you postponing your hap piness to that time? Are you adjoiqlng your joys to that consummation? Hup. pose you achieve all you expect and the ylslon I mention is not up to the roallty, because the fountains will be brighter, the bouse grander and the scenery more picturesque the mistake is none the less fatal. What charm will there be In rural quiet for a man who has for thirty or forty years boon conforming UUenHro nature to theexcltomentof business? W1U flocks and herds with tbolr bleats and moans bo able to silence an Insatiable spirit of acquisitiveness which for years has had full swing in the soul? Will tho bum of the breeze soothe the man who now ean And his only enjoyment In the stock market? Will leaf and cloud and fount ain charm tbeye that for three-fourths of a lifetime found lt cbiof duty In hogsheads and bills of sale? Will par ents be competent to rear their children for hlgb and holy purpose if thoi,r in fancy and boyhood and girlhood wore neglected when they wore almost ready to enter upon tho world and hayo all their habits fixed and their principles stereotyped? No, no; now Is the time to bo happy. Now Is tho time to serve your Creator. Now Is tho time to be a Christian. Are you too busy? I have known men as busy as you are who had a place In the store loft where they went to pray. Again, business men areolars tempted to let their calling interfere with th .interests of the soul. Ood sends men into the business world to get educated, just as boys are sent to school or col lege. Vuxcbasa and sal?, less and gaiu, THE L15XINaTO!SI INTELUGlilNOl! disappointment and rasping, prosperity, the dishonesty of others, panic and bank suspension, am but different les sons in tint school. Tho more business, tho more means of grace. Many havo gone thidiii'h Hie wildest, panic unhurt. Tho sUu'e ami the counting house havo developed Home of Hie most stalwart characters. Perhaps originally they bad but little sprili tliness anil force, but two or three business thumps wnko them up from their lethargy and there came a thorough development in their hearts of all that was good and holy and energetic anil tremendous. ;md they have become the front men in Christ's great army, as well as lighthouses in tho great world of trallic Itul. business has been perpetual depletion to many a man. It first pulled out of him all benevo lence, next all amiability, next all re ligious aspiration, next all conscience, and, though be entered bis vocation with large heart ami noble character, ho goes out of It a skeleton, enough to scare a ghost. Men appreciate the importance of having a good business stand, a store on tho right side of the street or the right block. Now every place of business is a good stand for spiritual culture. Ood's angels hover over the world of trallic to sustain and build up those who are try ing to do their duty. To-morrow, If In your place ol worldly engagement you will listen for it, you may hear a sound louder than the rattle of drays and the sliufllo of feet and tho chink of dollars stealing In to your soul, saying: "Seek ve first tho kliiiriloin of Uod and His righteousness, and all other things shall bo added unto you." Perhaps some of you saw tho lire In New York In 1h:i.V Aged men tell us that it beggared all description. Some stood on tho house tops of Brooklyn and looked at the red ruin that Hwupt down the streets and threatened to obliterate tho metropolis. But the commercial world will yet bo Htartled by a greater conflagration, evon the last. Bills of exchange, policies of Insurance, mort gages and bonds and government se curities will bo consumed in one lick of the flames. Tho bourse and the United StatP9 mint will turn to ashes. Oold will run molten Into tho dust of the street Exchanges and granite blocks of merchandise will fall with a crast that will make tho earth tremble. The flashing up of tho great light will show the righteous the way to their thronos their best treasures in Heaven. They will go up and take pos session of them. The toils of business llfo, which racked their brain and rasped their nerves for ho many years, will bave forever ceased. "There the wicked cease from troubling and the weary aro at rest" NEWSPAPER COURAGE. A New York Editor Who Ixed Honor Mora Than Wealth. Moral courago Is a quality as admir able 1 n newspapers as in men, and in thoso days of alleged conscienceless journalism it is refreshing to read of an exhibition of newspaper moral courage such as is graphically described by Harper's Weekly in a recent artlclo on Mr. George Jones, tho proprietor of tho New York Tlmos. Tho Times obtained the facts, figures and proofs of the cor ruption of the notorious "Tweed ring" after thoy had boon rejected by another New York dally, and Mr. Jones deter mined to publish a com pleto exposure of the ring: "By sumo means unknown to Mr. Jones, Tweed learned that tho proofsoof his guilt were In tho hands of tho Times. Ho sent a man to Mr. Jones, and offered to buy tho paper at any valua tion that might be put on it This offer was made tn cash, to bo paid at once. Mr. Jones replied that bo did not pro poso to soil bis paper at any prloo. Then Tweed's emissary informed him that ho could accept or do worse. This conver sation occurred In Mr. Jones' ofllco In tho Times building. Shortly thereafter a lawyer who was a tenant in tho sanio building sent for Mr. Jones to coma to his office, as ho wished to seo blm on an Important matter. Thinking that tho buslnoss pertained to '.tin building. Mr. Jones went to tho lawyer's ofllco, and, being ushered into a private room, was confronted by Richard B. Connolly, tho controller, and Tweed's partner in crime. " I don't want to seo this man,' said Mr. Jones, and bo turned to go out of the place. " 'For Ood's suko,' exclaimed Con nolly, 'lot mo say one word to you.' At this appeal Mr. Jones stopped. Con nolly then mado him a proposition to forego the publication of the documents he bad in bis possession, and offored him an enormous sum of money to do this. Tho amount of this offer was 5,000,0001 As Connolly waited for tho answer, Mr. Jones said: ' 'I don't think the dovil will ever make a Mffhor hid for mo than that' "Connolly then began to plead, and drew agraphia picturoof whatono could do with 65,000,000. Uo concluded by saying: " 'Why, with that sum you can go to En rope and live like a prince.' " 'Yes,' said Mr. Jones, 'but I should know that I was a rascal. I can not con sider your offeror any offer not to pub lish tho facts In my possession. "A few days thereafter tho proofs of tho frauds eamo out In tho Times, and were flashed to tho four quarters of tho globe. " TALE OF A GROUND-HOQ. HU Mysterious Alxenoo and Ills Mysterious Return. KqQally Tbo sons of William I). Fischer, of tho Fourth ward, ono day last summer captured a young ground-hog In tho woods, says tho Newcastle (Pa.) Guard lan. When taken tbo animal had not arrived at such an ago that bo pould gazo On things mundane, his oyos not yet having opened. They brought him to their homo, and as tho days length enod his eyes became unsealed and ho was as frisky as a young kitten. Ho do yeiopea mucn intelligence and was easily tatigbt numerous pretty Uttlo tricks with which bo was vont to do light visitors. Taking him all in ail 'bo was about as chipper a ground-hog as ever canio out of a holo or was chief boss of tbo weather. Ho would play around tho house Ilko a pet dog. When be wanted any particularly choico ediblo which appealed strongly to his hog- ship's appetite ho would get up on his hind legs, extend his paws and look at tho prospective donor with a famished look in his bright littlo eyi. ' This sup plication would prove irresistible, and bo would bo given tho coveted morsel, 'which ho would devour with greatgusto. It Is not surprising that such a ciin ning littlo rodent became a much-liked inmato of tho household. Thereforo, tho consternation In tho Fischer family may bo imagined when, September 25, J8b'J, bis liQgshlp was found missing. A search of the house and tho premises failed to discover him. No one had soon him leavo ho had simply dlsap- 1 I . 1 1 ...in iwun-u. wuin j miu no aiiuii missing. Thoro was a faint hnpo that ho might return on rrroiind-hofr day, but tvhjen tho 3d of I'ohruary eamo around he did not Hhow up. Then all hope of ever fleeing hlirj roturn wan pivon up by tho Fischer family. Tbo morning of March 9, lH'.M, whllo tho family wero at breakfast, a scratching sound eamo froiu door which led Into tho outer air. When one of tho family opened the door In whisked the missing ground-hog, showing signs of Ijelng much delighted at bis return. He wus as plump as a partridge and had evidently not suf fered much from want of food during his prolonged absence. His first action after taking a survey of tho family wus to got fi bi bind legs and "bog'' for food, whicti w.is promptly given him. Then ho began to caper around tho premises In his usual lively fe ty in ond became perfectly at bourn onco Imoro, and bus not hiiico Kiiown any signs of a desiro to make another chango of quarters. The question now ' agitating tho Fischer family is: "Whero was bo duriuif hia absuuuvV" SMELLED THE SNAKE. Strange Instance of a Romarkablo Hereditary Faculty. A Mystery Which runted Hospital Hiir geon ror Home Time, Hut Wan Final ly Hi.lvod to Ills Satisfaction Hie Influence of Heredity. A fow years since," Haid tho hospital steward to a New York Sun reporter, "I was employed in ono of tho two hos pitals supported by a well-known min ing company in Arizona for tho care of its sick and Injured employes. Wo were remote from settlements, and it j was sometimes difficult to get men, mo that Interest as well as humanity re quired the company to take good care of Its miners. They had over a thousand employes, and the casualties, great and small, sometimes averaged ono every day, so that tbo surgeon's ofllco was no sinecure. Tho company was not, how over, entitled to credit for benevolence, for It levied a tax of a dollar a month on each of its employes, stopping it out of their pay to support tho hospitals, surgeons and nurses. Tho head of tho service, lr. Kckerson, contracted to bear all Its expenses, so thut It was a good thing for tho men, tho company and the physician, although tho men paid It all. "Dr. Kckerson was a young man for such a responsible position. Ho was a Swcdo who had boon thoroughly edu cated In his own country and in (ler- many, and possessed tho mechanical skill and manual tact that mako a good Burgeon, and tho diagnostlo intuition without which no man can bo a success ful physician. "Tho assistant in tho other of tbo two hospitals was a young Frencli Canadian named Perot Ho was a reticent young fellow', very pallid but vigorous. Ho possessed remark ablo eyes. Tho Iris hud a singulur wuy of changing color under tho lnfluenco of his physical, mental or nervous conditions, and thoso changes perceptibly altered tho ontlro expression of tho man's faco. "Ono day the doctor bad an uncom monly difflouitoperatlon to perform, and both Perot and mysolf wore summoned to assist. When Perot entered tho operating-room I noticed that bis eyes changed color repeatedly and rapidly as If be wero under sorno groat excitement. In a few seconds he complained of being dizzy, and before we realized tho urgency of action in bis behalf ho bad dropped to tho floor In a dead faint The ordi nary means of restoration wero Imme diately applied, but without avail, and Dr. Eakerson ordered blm removed to ono of tbo hospital wards and laid upon a bed. Here to our surprise Perot at onco came to himself without further aid and declared himself ready for duty. Upon our return to tho oporuting-room, however, Perot's disturbed symptoms at onco returned. His eyeballs lecamo fixed and glaring, his breathing storto rlous, and ho would again havo swooned bad we not caught him und removed blm from tbo room. Tho experiment was tried tho third time, with tho sanio phenomenal result "The doctor set seriously to work to investigate this H Iran go caso. lie soon came to tho conclusion that tho Influ ence which disturbed Perot wasoxtornal to himself, and as ho had thoso attacks only in tho operating room, liegan to examine its contents, condition und sur roundings for the cause of this extra ordinary affection. What seemed fur ther to complicate tho case was the fact that Perot had for months frequented the room without experiencing any un usual sensation. At last I said to the doctor: 'Has any change been made in this room recently?' At first ho siiid No.' "Suddenly, with a half-smothered ex clamation, ho went to his zoological cabinet, and, tnklng down a jar which contained a llvo rattlesnake which he had purchased a fow days before from an Indian, ho examined it with a curious expression on his faco. "Tho reptllo was In this largo jar, over the mouth of which a wire-gauze cover hud been bound to permit the admission of air. The cabinet stood behind a cur tain, and no one but the doctor knew of the snake In tho room. "Tho doctor caused tho jar to lie re moved from tho operating-room and oallod Perot In. To our astonishment, none of tho previous unpleasant symp toms appeared. Then the jar was car ried Into another room and secreted. Perot was summoned, and upon entering tbo room the former distressing symp toms at onco recurred. Whenever tho Canadian was brought uoar the reptile bo went Into this tranoo, "Dr. Kckerson believed firmly In tho Influence of hereditary on individual characteristics, and bo begun question ing Purot about his family antecedents. Perot said that his father was a Cana dian pf mixed blood; his mother a French woman, who bad died when ho was about twelve years old. Ho recol lected her as a woman of vlvuotoug and happy temperament. Ho said that she had a great passion for (lowers, and would in tho autumn gather and dry largo bouquets, duclarlug that they smelled as sweet to ber as when fresh; sho also liked to smell flowers which wero perfectly Inodorous. Tliuso facts bad been riveted In Perot's memory by his father's scoffing at her strange tastes, and by her persistent defense of tho same. This singularity seemed to have been the causa of no small conten tion iu tho family and talk among tho neighbor. "Tho doctor was now convinced that with his special hereditary souso Perot had smelled the snake. Ho ut onco ! drowned the reptile with alcohol, stop- ' pored tho jar tightly, and called Perot i into tho room. To his delight tbo man ' exhibited none of tho unpleasant syinp- I toms. Tho Jar was then placed before ! him, but without affecting him In tho least. Tho mystery was solved. Perot hod smelled tho snake." Important unverle.

The reported killing of "Belle Boyd, tho famous Confederate spy, in tho Choctaw Nation, Indian Territory, some time since, recalls to the ml ml of every Southerner the daring deeds und thrill ing incidents which mado tho woman renowned, says tho Savannah (tla.) News. Daniel It. Kabuweiler, lato of Kahn weller Unit hers, cotton merchants of Wilmington, N. ('., related many Inci dents occurring In Wilmington, whero Hollo lloyd made her headquarters for i. considerable time. Mr. Kabuweiler was personally acquainted with tho famous woman. Site was born In Mar tinsburg, W. Va., In 1M4U, and lived there until IHU1. Her father was a merchant; her mother a handsome woman of good family. The girl's association wore excel lent. Sho was not u pretty woman, but she attracted by her dashing and foar Ikhs manner. She rode in men's clothes as often us she did In her own dross. As Martinsburg, Va., the placo of her birth, was most of tho time within tho Union lines, Hello Boyd's secret serv ice proved invaluable to tho Southern commanders. Her llrst work as a spy was during a visit to tho neighboring town of Winchester after war was de clared. The dashing horsewoman beard of Federul movements whloh threatened her "lioloved South," as she familiarly culled It, and sho gallantly rodo by night to Stonewall Jackson's headquarters anil told him what sho knew. From that time sho was attached to Jackson's brigade. Sho rodo across the battlo-fleld of Port lloyal and carried Jackson dispatches which sent him tn pursuit of Banks. Sho hod ulready be come tho pet and pride of tho army. One time when tho lato Jefferson Davis wanted some worthy person to carry sonio Important' document to Oreat Britain, tho young woman ap plied at tho Confederate President's headquarters und volunteered her serv ices. It is said that tno President hes tated, doubting her ability, until she produced letters of recommendation from Stonewall Jackson. President Davis then urmed her with tho docu ment, "to deliver at nil hazards." The your.g woman went to Wilming ton to start on tho voyage. Tho steamor Greyhound was to leave In a fow days for Nassau, and she secured passago on it The steamer carried no passengors, but tho spy succeeded In gutting aboard and went out to sea with the crow, leaving Wilmington harloroii tho night of May 0, PC. The vessel ran smoothly, with good winds and weather, until late tho following day, when an accident happened to tho en gine. The vessel sprang a leak and be gun to fill. The captain ordered the freight upon deck to bo heaved over board. It consisted of thirty bags of gold and 1,'juo bale of cotton belonging to Kahnweller Bros., consigned to a Nas sau firm. When the money was brought on deck every is sly filled his pockote full and the balance was thrown Into the sea. Before the vessel was emptied of Its freight tho steamer Massachu setts ran tho Greyhound down and took the cotton and Imprisoned tho crew.
