chums at vVaterville College, Maine, but when j

i They were both mortally wounded in this bat- !
i tie and after ti • lighting was over a mutual
| friend found ti. .;i lying side 4>y side on the
! bat'ie field with their right hands clasped, and
; both dead. Ti;ey had evidently recognized,
i each other after being wounded, and the old
j ties of friendship ha 1 asserted their supremacy,
i and together their spirits had passed into the
. i eternal world. Side by side, in the same grave,
j they sleep their last, sleep,

I Think of that, ye Puritan wretches! In a sin-;
' g!e State, Lincoln has freed three hundred thou
' sand poor jic : /roee to death ! We suppose it to be
j safe to say that this a tministration has, in less
i than four years, slaughtered a million of white
; men, and n million of blacks. Neither God
| nor men can show mercy to the Puritan scoun
drels who have done this deed! I)o they not
deserve to be execrated here, and damned here
after ? For our own part, we have taught our
souls to abhor them, and we mean to teach our !
children to do the same.-— -Old Guard.

"Promise me, Charlie." r
She was leaning playfully over the back of e
lis chair, looking down into his face.—By "she" I
I mean Mrs. Gale; and "Charlie" was her hus- c
band. He had just settled himself for a quiet c
aftc: din.-.:" civic, liu* Mrs. Gale had mi:- •
chievctisJy snatched it rrom Lis hawk threaten- s
i,;g to withold it until be gave her the desired v
jTumisc. And now she laid one baud caress- i
ingly on his lbrehca-l, and stealing the oth r
under his chin she looked archly yet half ear- -
neslly down into the davk detps of his eyes, \
with her tender blue one.) as she repeated : s
"Pr .-mise me, Ch'.rlie, now do ; tlmt's a i
"Nonsense, Virgii-. ' t
And he tried to put away her hand. v
••Oh, Charlie," reproachfully. c
"IMuiw ! do let me ,< o. You'll choke mc,"
he saiii, half impatiently
"And so I will," she cried merrily,'"it you g
do:,"i promise me, tins very minute, not to drink
anything stronger than pure cei l water at Un- i
c!e Logan's to-nigh'."
And forthwith she made a srna'l but savage !
attack upon him, pulling hi 3 head back as far j
as she could get it, and making believe to clutch s
him by the throat with intense mock fury.
• Stop. Yirgie, Stop! Why, what are you a
bout. Only let m- getNdear, and I'll pay you 1
for this little mischief! There now, yuu'il put !
out my eye? with that pin in your -kievc. Oh, i
murder ! my face! Ii! promise. Chi ye? —any-
thing !" . . i
And she still persevered in this spirited mode
of enforcing an arunment. He shouted out: I
"Yes, yes, yes! There, now, I hope I have :
promised often enough to saujfy ycu."
"On your honor ?"
"Certainly. Yes, of coarse." ,
"Oil, sir. I thought . could I l ing you to terms.
Recollect you have said Yn your honor.' I i
shall hold you to your promise."
And she came around and seated herself on ]
his knee v-.-ry demurely indeed, after tlie man
ner of netted young wives when they have just
gained a point. i
"You saucy little pu-s, how dare you ? And
just see how you've scratched my face!"
"Shall I kiss it, and make it well ?" she ask- j •
ed playfully. And then while her face grew j
earnest in its phm 'ing expression, she added : !
"Oh, ( huriic, you do not know how anxious j
I have felt about this parly ever since wo j
decided to go. They always sut-ii a gay !
tim-i at Uncle Logan's. Aral you know dear, j
though von would not do a wrong thing - r < r- '
Si If. how cay it is lor cb r.puni -hs la'fhah so Crh

natured case. But cow that you have, promis- |

come up stairs to me and L iby."
And ho proaf. '
Going out to ag evening party at Uncle Lo- j
gan's was no noall uuair, co. uiering, it was j
good five miles rid - from Gh-cduie out into the
country, over rough roads, with Maple Creek—
swollen by recent rains, and flowing wild and j
dark within its banks —to be crossed. .Ho it j
was still cariv of a clear, frosty evening, when
Yirgie came e-.< lipp i . ' tbe ride.
"Here, Ilcster, held the baby. Now Char
lie —"
Ar.d giving him her hand she placed her foot
in his other, and sprang lightly ialo the saddle.
; "Now give !.; :i to mo.''
The idea of such a mother-bird as Yirgie
going away live miles to sprnd ti.e evening ar.d
• leaving her baby, would have been pronounced |
insanity, if any one had been absurd enough to t
propose it to her. - j
"Dear little Ic'f.ow, 1.-.-.v bright he looks 1 '
she said, fondlv pulling down one corner of the
shawl. "He a. Cburitel"
! And the lit lie one gave a soft coo, in answer
to papa's in -try chirrup, a> h? looked into the
iiugc. bundlo of shawls, and patted the tiny,
rosy face, just p-i-c-pi-rr out of it- song eoclo- j

Then, after mamma had given her parting j
: directions to 11 ater —promoted tube house •
keepet in missus' absen — they started off, the
li' r !:f, crisp .-now crackling unuor the Icet ol
their hor?< .-.
• ( ice Charlie to rac, Yirgie,'' her husband
said when they reached the creek and rrined in !
i their horses upon its bank.
"Keep close to me," he added, and not an- |
o'her word was spoken until they had reached
the opposite bank; for the fording of the creek,
in Us present condition was a diilicuit, almost
dangerous undertaking.
"I do hope the moon will be up when we
come," said Yirgie. Then added, anxiously,
as he again deposited the child in her arms,
"the creek is deeper than I thought, and real
ly it would be dangerous to cross in the dark." j
Lights were glimmering from the windows j
as they rode up to Uncle Logan's gates ; and j
1 tbe number of horses and vehicles already , !
i congregated around showed that the invited}
gnosis of the Ciiristmas eve party were already |
beginning to drop in. Aunt Lizzie came out j
to the door to meet them, and took the babe
from Virgie's poor, tired arm-.
"Ik-member, Charlie," she said imploringly
laying her head upon his shoulder as they were J
on the point of separating. She, for Aunt
Lizzie's comfortable room above stairs—lie, for
the society of bis boon-companions.
"Never fear forme!" and he went gayly
Alas! for the promise made to the fond
crciliiloits wife, sitting up stairs in the quiet
matronly circle with her bane on her knee,
so proud and happy —for i' sVas her lir?t child.
And wiiat young mother fails to appreciate
the dignity of her position at such a time.
In icss than half an hour, Charles Gale had
forgotten his promise, wife, child, everything,
nnd again and again his gla.-s was filled, and
his voi - t raised in riotous chorus with the
The night waned, and the guests began to j
disperse Yirgie sat in the dressing room ali .
ready for the ride, h..iuing in her lap what seem- j
oj to b • a huge bundle of blanket? and shawls,
but wh rh was in reality little Charlie, who '
curled up in his warm nest fast asleep, with ;
one little fat thumb in his mouth.
"I wonder what makes Charlie so lata';"
she sab! At las!, impatiently. "Aunt Lizzie,
will you 1 lease c i nd for him. and say I'm wait

He at length. Rut the first words he
spoke told i . She knew at once that he

Silo c uM not bear that those around should j
know t.-< moi d.lying truth.
"I dv> visli you would stay all night, Yirgie," j
spoke An:H Lizzie, renewing her entreaties. — :
"It's so late, and it is growing colder."
Yicgi. thought of the dreary five miles ride,
with a dsunken husband, and then the creek!
She ha 1 hjkire refused to stay, but now shot

"io ' oil Jhtnk of it, Ciiarlas—liadnt

But ii'-uor bad made him sullen.

She know it would avail nothing to urgue the 1

to eive 1 !>- ■" to h-r before they started.

"But Char! ', v.-u are not in a condition to

"Ha ! Yfhat do you mean by that?"
She made him no answer.
"Do you take uie for a foul' he said rough
ly And angrily.
"Now Charles, don't do so ' You know

"Ah, I un-.l - and you now. Ho, Madam f
snpnose you ti..nk I'm drunk
Again she was silent.
"Give me the child!" he said fiercely.
•-0 Charles! For God's sake —"
"Give him to me, I say! Do yon think to
brave nc . o ? Give him here this minute."
Resistance, sh 1 knew, was useless. It would
( ;;!v serve 11 injuria. '.e Lim, and what will not
a drunken man do .-
"IVait till I fix him," she said, hut her voice
was unnatur: ;iy uuivt.'.r the little sleejHtig face, she kiss
ed it on. ,- —then drawing the thick blanket
closer over the sliawl which enveloped the Ut
ile figure, she COY red the .'ace again, and gave
him into her husband's arms.
"Charles ! For the love of God be careful."
| "Don't be a fool!
| So they plunged in, and she did not take her
Cj'cs from the other two, until they had reached
the opposite bank. Then her horse stepped on
' a stone, and, slipping, nearly precipitated her
into the water ; when her attention was-again
free they had reached the opposite bank.
"There lie is!" said Charles triumphantly,
as he placed the bundle in her arms.—"What
a simpleton you were to think I could't bring
hini over safely!"
flow very light it was! Good God! Sue
moved it about in her arm-' —pressed it closer,
i and then uttered an awful shriek.
In his drunken unconsciousness Charlie had
let the sleeping infant slip out of the blanket,
and nothing could he heard above the deafening
roar of the waters. He (hd not know it till
the mother screamed.
There was no help ! Oh ! it was pitiful, heart
breaking! My Charlie! O my child !
Both turned simultaneously back to the \va
(er. The quick eye of the-mother was just in
rime to catch one last brief glimpse of a little
rosy, pitiful upturned face—and then it disap
peared down the current, and the rapid waters
Ilowed on!
The home of the Gales is very still now,
Virgie's pale face seems paler yet, contrasted
with her black dress. The cradle looks so des
olate. standing always hack in one corner of
■ the nursery. She never passes it without hav
ing her heart wrung anew, and she will sit for
| hours, folding and unfolding the little clothes
■ and her hands linger lovingly among them. —
There is a pair of liny worn shoes in the draw
er of her work table, and a lock of fair, soft
baby hair in the great Bible.
Let us hope that Charles Gales is a better
though a sadder men, for at the temperance
meeting held the week after that sad event, he
| was the first to come forward and aign the total
• abstinence pledge.
; And the Fifty Thousand Dollars in Gold.
The fourth il of Commerce, in an editoriaf on
; the recent revelations in regard to this subject.
' says :
| Judge Edwards Pierrcpont, who has long been
I well known to the public on the bench and in
his profession as a lawyer, as welt as his asso
-1 ciation, under the orders of the present admin- j
islralion, with General L>ix, on the commission
j relating to prisoners of State, has published a
; letter to the Speaker of the House of Repre
i sentatives in reply to the defence of Gen. But
; ler, which was made in the House by a
: chusetts Representative. This tetter presents a
5 series of astounding facts —astounding only to
those who have been in the dark en this sub- >
ject —about the fifty thousand dollstfs in gold,
| which Gen. Butler appropriated 111 New Or
; leans, and of which very little that trm
: but a great deal of falsehood has been publish
, ed. Judge Pierrepont's character alone is sutf:-
: c-ient to give tire highest importance to his state
ments, bat he docs not leave the reader to de
pend on his unsupported statement:' He pub
lishes the whole correspondence which has ta
ken place on the subject between himself and j
: General Butler, and the history, a-, furnished j
by General Butler's admissions and e-.intradie- j
tor/ statements at different iim i> tav.t r.v
. inarkable. We have not space to go over the
; whole history. A brief statement is all that'
vvc can make. It appears that Mr. Smith, of
' the lirm of Smith & Co., bankers, was a loyal
. Union man, a banker iu New Orleans, who liu 1
' accumulated a fortune by bonef. injur r.y, nr '
that, on ili; approach of the Federal troops,
j fearing uiohs, riot and plunder, he coficeaku
the gold, which was his own private property,
: the result of years of labor. Judge Fierrcpont
! emphatically denies and disproves a statement
! published i . a New York paper the other day,
j that this g hi WKS '-proceeds of a rubbery of
j the United Stat--- Mint." Ho shows clearly
enough that it was the private robbery of .Mr.
Ny#- - 1 .• .y . •' ... th :-ro ■
than,"that Bnth'-r b . .he* books of dibit?:
i amine], and finding that he had gold, iqaprisbn
! Ed him until he divulged the place of its eon
| cfalment, whereupon he sent and seized it-
Gen. Butler admits taking the money. Then
; commences the complication. The ouestiun
1 is, what did he do with it 9 The answer is,
■ that 1. has it to this d.s, ! V/hat ? exclaims
the reader: did he not pay it over to the gov
j eminent . hi >. Did he not use it to pay troops?
1 No. DM iiC a--' expend it on government ac
count : No. . Is it not mixed up in his accounts
lin s >me way? No. It was two years and nine
months ay . and he has not accounted to any
one. government or individual, up to this day
for liie '.-00,000. It suddenly disappeared. It
1 vanished from public and private view. It was
: in Smith's vault, of which the masonry was
j broken down to enable Butler to get at it, and
; from the time it left that vault it has not been
seen, nor has it appeared in any account or
memorandum of account of Butler with gov
' eranient or any one else. Butler now admits
that he lias I*. Rut di j he always admit as
i much?
i Judge Pierrepont produces a letter from the
Treasury Department, under date of April 2,
t862, which states that '"An examination of
the re: ■ rt made to this department by General
Butlerdi- ' cvs the following facts: thats3o,ooo

pa aphict form, will oe amused at the sharp
dodges of the Lowell lawyer, and the ingenuity
' with which he succeeds in evading Judge Pierre
pant's frank and confiding attempts to induce
him to disgorge this money, either to the gov
ernment or to Mr. Smith. For the Judge re
ally seems for a year or so to have had eonfi
dence that Butler might be induced to pay over
tiie money. But finally he was compelled to
sue him here 111 New York. And then foli.uv
| ed a tunny incident illustrating the game of con
fidence which is played on sotae newspapers by
"special despatches." Butler left New York
for Washington Nov. loth, and reached there
on the 16th. On the next morning, the 17th,
the Tribune published "special" from Washing-
I ton, as follows:
| "The Copperhead attachment for Gen. But
-1 -'s New Orleans gold will have to penetrate
the vaults of the United States Treasury be
fore it will oe forthcoming, every dollar being
in the keeping of that department."
j The Tunes on the same morning also had a
special saving:
i. "It is proper to say that the gold referred to
; is iu the Treasury of the United States, and
' that the plaintiffs must seek redress, if they
feel aggrieved, against the government and not
against General Butler."
Another paper, friendly to Butler, had asim
; iiar '"special." Wo can imagine Juug-3 Fierre
pont's astonishment when he read these bold
falsehoods. He had been working bard for
. more than a year to persuade Butler to pay the
money into the United States Treasury. That
was all Mr. Smith or his counsel wanted hitu

' abort to !..• stopped by a law of Congress, by
which the fact of building ttpon the boundary
line will of itself be assumed as evidence of a
purposi to smuggle, and the revenue officers
