I stood, bewildered by his words, when the curtains at the window parted once more, and a radiant creature, in bright and shining garments, gave one bound toward -my noble patrons, and knelt before them. Gracious Heaven ! it was Clemence —my own, my beautiful !— Her clear, sweet voice rose above the tumult that prevailed among us, as she said : " Father —mother, dear parents, hear me. I have known and loved this man for a long time, lie loves me, too, but, not as the duke's daughter; be won mo as a poor peasant girl, for myself alone, as you have often wished me to be loved. O, my father, ho is worthy of my lovo. Give him your child." I had knelt down by Clemence, and joined my petition to hers, as b»dy as I da-red, I saw the duke's eye wander back to the statue. His cheek glowed, his eye kindled, and ho bent toward us with a gracious air. as he said: "My darling, ho deserves you nobly. Take her, sighor; her happiness is dearer lo mi than wealth or station." And thus I won my bride—...

THE SOLDIER'S WELCOME HOME. The street is thronged with eager crowds, The breeze bears onward cheer on cheer, On ev'ry face there beams a smile. On many a cheek Joy sheds a tear. The sun shines brightly in the heavens, The flags are fluttering in the air, The joyous bells peal merry chimes. The cannons boom, the trumpets blare. A moment's hush, a short-lived pause, And then is heard a distant drum, And now, with myriad Stentor shouta, The cry is raised, " they come! they come!" They come! is echoed in each heart, They come! is beamed from every eye, They come lis wreathed in every smile; " Oh, that he would!" some mourners sigh. Nearer and nearer beats the drum, The steady tramp sounds loud and near, The swaying crowd surge like the sea, On every lip is, "They are here!" With sun-bronzed hue and gait erect. The war-scarred veterans, marching by, Show ball-pierced flags and faded dress, But bearing firm, and eagle eye. Each sunburnt face is fondly scanned. To And a brother, husband, ...

rebellions which have occurred in the United Before the gigantio rebellion that is but now subdued, there have been six insurrections, or so-called insurrections, or attempted insurrections, since the formation of the Federal Government. Some of these outbreaks, or attempted outbreaks, were rather riots, or bloodless demonstrations of popular discontent; but they are generally called insurrections, and it is sufficient for our present purpose to so consider them. What is popularly known as Shay's rebellion is the first instance of organized resistance to lawful government in the United States. In 1786, Daniel Shay, a citizen of Massachusetts, became the leader of a party of malcontents in the Old Bay State, which had organized to right such grievances as heavy State taxation, the high salary of the Governor, the aristocratic tendencies of the State Senate, and othsr similar local grievances. It was entirely a family quarrel, and the State troops settled the difficulty by killing thr...

Dr. G. L. Sutton, formerly in charge of Augur Hospital, sends us, through Mr. Phelps, the following happy greeting :— U. S. A. General Hospital, Point Lookout, Md., May 26th, 1865. Miss A. M. Bradley, Proprietor of Soldiers' Journal :—I am desired, by the Surgeon in charge, to return you his thanks, in behalf of the patients in this Hospital, for the thirty-five numbers of your valuable paper which you have so kindly forwarded for distribution here.

Rebel Philosophy Exemplified. Orpheus C. Kerr is out in a characteristic letter, in which he capitally takes off the very satisfactory manner in which Rebeldom received its continued and repeated disasters. Capt. Bob Shorty -personates the Federal Government, while Capt. Munchausen figures as the Confederacy. Right behind me came a remarkable being, attired in fragments of gray cloth and a prodigious thicket of whiskers, through the latter part of which his eyes glowed yellowly like the bottles in an apothecary's shop down the street. As he approached nearer he hastily put on a pair of partially dissected white cotton gloves, and casually re-arranged the strip of carpet binding which served him as a full-dress carvat. " Yours truly," said Capt. Bob. Shorty. "Vandal!" hissed Capt. Munchausen, removing from his brow an unexampled conglomeration of rags in the last stages of cap, and handing it to a faithful contraband who attended him. " Why, then," said Capt. Bob Shorty, doffing his ...

MAQDALEN. BY ETHEL LYNN. 'Tis I, little brook, only stopping to look If the water Is silent and deep, If the lily-pads lie too tangled and nigh . In-shore, for one venturesome leap. Down out of the strife of this horrible life, Down, down, from its buffet and sneer, To quench in the dark this wearisome spark, Which the happy and good hold so dear. I know, little stream, how the rushes will gleam, When something goes down out of sight: But the bright evening star, looking on from afar, Above me will chaplet its light. Then still as you go to the village below, You will sing the same song at the door; They never will know what burden of woe You are trying to wash evermore. " Evermore—Evermore," how I whispered ito'er, What will this " evermore " be to me; Is there never a way a sinner may stray, From this dreaded to-morrow to flee? Hark! soft through the dell sounds a church-going bell— I remember—'tis prayer meeting night; I used to go there, welcome them everywhere, Now I creep out ...

Assistant Quartermaster's Office. City Point, Va., June 9, 1865. Dear Journal .—Having this afternoon to myself I know not how I can better improve the few hours as they are passing away, than in holding con versation with you by aid of my pen. Your visits to me weekly, laden with good news and good things fill me with with pleasure, and I welcome you not only as the "Soldier's Journal" but as the Soldiers' Friend. And now, since I come to meet you, I can think of no theme of more interest at this time than to tell you of n visit from which I have just returned, along our former lines, through and around Petersburg, and note the changes from war to peace. Having obtained absence for the purpose we make all things ready, and seated behind the iron horse are borne swiftly forward,—and here is a change. Once when duty called us to and from our camp-grounds behold us climbing to the top of some war-worn box-car, and there rattled away, holding on for dear life, or by chance crowded insi...
