persecute her with his loathsome suit. Poor Puss! Her mother's friends had gone away from that part of the country ; she and her father lived very isolated lives, and she had nobody •but God and herself to look to for protection from this danger—this outrage, which Burbank in his drunken dotage was capable of perpetra- Suddenly, as she sat sewing, she heard the approaching voices of her father and this man, who was always with him now, and shrank within the house. The two sat down to the meal that waited them, after waiting upon them, retreated to the window and resumed her sewing, betraying no consciousness of having heard Mallory's coarse flattery. While they were eating, the first sullen boom, boom of the attacking cannon sounded, and the two men started up. " That means business, and sooner'n I reck- | oned on," said Mallory, and while Burbank lingered in the doorway ho went and stood near Puss. She drew back from his too near speaking, however. " See yer now, my girl," said he,...

The Pate of the " Stonewall Brigade." The "Stonewall Brigade" of the Rebel army is said to have been entirely used up in Sheridan's late battles, not enough of it remaining to make up a minimum company. It was formed of the elite of the first families in the Shenandoah Val ley, of young men, born, as they thought, to lives of ease, made so by the labors of slaves.— It has been recruited, it is said, at various times, with six thousand men, so that under the lead ership of Jackson and Early, eleven thousand " Stonewallers" have measured the dust. It was the fortune or misfortune of this Brigade to have fallen under the command of Thomas Jonathan Jackson, whose restless temperament and active habits gave it plenty of work. It made its first reputation at Bull Hun, where it " stood firm like a stone wall," when chivalric South Caro lina regiments were flying. But it had been in service before that time. It was one of the ob stacles which Patterson encountered at Falling Waters. It was ...

The Grave of John Brown. While journeying recently in northern New York, I visited with special interest the former home and the grave of "Old John Brown."— North Elba is surrounded by the wildest of the Adirondack mountains. It is most easily reach ed by landing at Port Kent, on the west shore of Lake Chnmphiin, opposite Burlington. From Port Kent there is a good stage road to Keeso villo, thence to Jay and Wilmington, and an ad ded ten miles drive through tho grandest of mountain scenery takes one through 'the Notch,' and a dense uninhabited wilderness to the little settlement of North Elba. This settlement con sists of half a dozen diminutive houses and barns. Two miles further on, leaving the main road, crossing an open field, and penetrating a forest of original growth, we reach tho John Brown Homestead, The house and barn are of mode rate size, plain and unpainted. In the yard near the house is a rock of huge proportions. By the side of this rock lies buried tho body of the di...

"VET." "V—e —t. Vet." What does it mean Upon yon soldier's faded coat? His hand is hard and rough and brown, I see a scar along his throat. His eyes seem looking far off still, His close-shut mouth is grim. " Mother, Avhat means that little word, Upon a sleeve so Avorn and dim ?" Jt means my child, that rugged hand Has wielded musket long and well; Has sent the iron thunder home, And tuned the song of screeching shell. It means—that steady, staunch and true He fairly won that ragged scar, While you and I sat safe at home, And read the news about the Avar. What wonder if the mouth is grim, That said so many swift "good-bye's!" Life's common words are idle breath, Beside those earnest battle cries. What wonder if the gaze is dim, And yonder strangely lingers yet; The eye that has looked straight at Death, His image may not soon forget. And this is what it means to earn The title " Veteran " on a coat: To march through flood and field, or lie Where rebel rifles sweep the moat; To serve...

THE SOLDIERS' JOURNAL. LOCAL AND PERSONAL ITEMS. Farewell Speech of Mr. Uniac—The sta ted meetings of the Temperance Union, of this camp, aro held at the Chapel every Wednesday evening. Last week Mr. Uniac, so well known as our camp's most prominent and eloquent temperance orator, delivered his farewell speech, his term of service being about to expire. It was of course good, and well received. In tho departure of Mr. U. our camp loses one of its ablest and most influential members. He has for several months, being unfit for active duty, acted as librarian to tho Christian Commission, in which capacity ho gave universal satisfaction. He was the working leader of tho Temperance Union here, and was untiring in his efforts to increase its membership and influence. When other and strange speakers could not be had, Mr. Uniac was always ready to fill tho vacancy, and his auditors were always tho hotter pleased by his oommenoemerlt, for they were sure of a good, enthusiastic and inspiritin...

A Budget of Blunders. We have all heard of Sir Boyle Robert's blun ders. Dickens gives an account of some of those which, happily, are preserved. In one of his speeches he said: " Sir, I would give up half—nay, the whole of the Constitution, to preserve the remainder." This, however, was parliamentary. Hearing that Admiral Howe was in quest of the French, he remarked, somewhat pleasantly, that the Admiral would " sweep the French fleet off the face of the earth." By-and-bye came dangerous times of disaffec tion, and honest men's lives were insecure.— Sir Boyle writes from the country to a friend in the capital this discouraging view of his po sition: " You mayjudge," ho says, " of our state when I tell you that I write this with a sword in one hand and a pistol in the other." On one occasion when the famous letters to Public Advertiser were attracting universal attention, Sir Boyle was heard to complain bit terly of the attacks of a certain anonymous writer called Junius. He it was ...

Honor to the Brave. In a speech at Cincinnati, September 24th, ex- Secretary Chase related the following incident: It is only a few days since I was in Massa chusetts, when I was at the place where old Israel Putnam, the wolf-hunter, was born.— They showed me the room in which the old man was born, and it was interesting to think that I stood there upon the spot where such a man came into life. I heard something that was far more interesting than that. A young man of the same blood, some sixteen years of age, heard of the firing on Fort Sumter. His youthful ar dor was kindled. He had been sleeping in the room of the old General, and had caught the spirit of his ancestor, and in the moonlight nights he would sit outside and carve with his penknife a sword of wood. They showed it to me. On one side he had engraved. "Not to be drawn without Justice; not to be sheathed without Honor." On the other side he had engraved, " Death to Traitors." And his youthful heart so burned within him, t...
