Welcome home, ye brave Reserves;
All praise and glory you deserve,
For toil and hardships long endured,
Whilst we in safety were secured.
But ivldlst rejoicing, yet we mourn
For those 'who never can return. '
Ah ! how sad the tale to tell—
Thousands iu the conflict fell
Who left their homes and dearest ties,
And gave - their lives a sacrifice;
Their toil and hardships now are o'er—
They hear of bloadY war no more.
Then welcome home, ye brave- and true,
Although your numbers are but few ;
Your bronzed complezioes plainly show
The hardships none but soldiers know.
Glorious honor crowns the toil
You hove borne on southern soil.
Then iVeleotrie home, - Ye gallant few,
have fought so brave and true
"Then cheering home each soldier boy,
Where they the blessings may enjoy
Of all the peace that home can give
Long may the war•worn soldier live I

And now, Mr. Editor, a word to re
bel sympathizers in the North. You
-see that we have purposely let you in
to your own citadel, and gave you all
nrms you could draw frdm the bible,
in order to show their inefficacy, and
still you persist in your defence of sla
very. See a.late article in the Patriot
tiG Uiiion, in which the writer labors to
_prove that Slavery is not a sin per se,
a truth which wo never saw denied,
and then proceeds to fault our Govern
meat for its hostility to the institution
as it exists in tho South ; which, taken
all together, is a piece of sophistry
which can deceive no person save
' those who aro willing to be deceived.
That slavery was, and is, the cause of
this cruel rebellion scarcely needs fur
in the Missouri Convention, in: : .1861;
see the change in our Constitution in
order to make it suit the Confederacy,
-rendering it a perpetual protection to
their loved institution; listen to the
address of Mr. Stevens, Vico President
of the Confederacy-, and the most elo
quent of their orators, in his Atlanta
specch,,for which ho.was elected to
the Vice Presidency, wherein he said,
"Though last, not le*, the new Con
stitution has Put,,to rest forever ell - "the
agitating qeestions relatiOg talefir-pe
culiar, institutions ;" - . "Slavery : Was the
inimediatOicause of our Into rupture
snit_ present revolution ;" "The - pre
vailing ideati_ontertained by Jefferson
and Most of the leading statesmen of
his time that the enslavement of
the African race Was in violation 'Of the
laws of nature." He,then. proceeds to
--show that these mighty men,were in
emir, and that the negro, by nature
or by the curse against Canaan, "is fit
ted for that condition. which ho occu
pies in our
.system.' ; ' And then, to
: - show his utter disregard for Alm mas•
ter beildersofpur institutions, he said,
"This, stone, which the builders reject

corner in our new edifice."'" Listen to
. Mr: Hunter, -a Virginia orator, who
clothes the same ideas in : figurative
language, thus, "The keystone which
caps and sustains the powerfularch on
which our social system reposes, is
made of that blocic of black niarble; can
cel the African slave." And Such is tho
institution which you defend, and for
the defence of which you have invited
the South to rebel by your press and
by resolutions in conventions, and by
all your moral influence; and for the
perpetuation of which you still labor
to paralyze; the arm of our Govern
ment, now raised to eradicate forever
this living plague, this prolific cause of

GIRLS.--Henry Ward Beecher says:
"A girl is not allowed to be a girl after
she is ten years old. If you treat her
as tho Ugh she were one, she will ask
yeu what you moan. If she starts to
run across the street, she is brought
back to the nursery to listen to a lec
ture on the proprieties of Womanhood
Now it seems to mo that a girl ought
to bo nothing but a girl until she is
seventeen. Of course there are pro
prieties belonging to her sox, which it
is fitting for her to observe, but it
seems to me that aside from these she
ought to halie the utino_stiati. tde.—
She ought to be
much out of doors, to run.and exercise
in all those Ways which - are calculated
to develop the muscular frame. What
is true of boys, in the matter of bodily
health,:is eminently so of girls. It is
vastly more important that women
should he healthy than the men sh'ld
be. Man votes, and writes, and does
business,•but the woman is the mother
and teacher of tho world; and any
thing that deteriorates woman is a
comprehensive plague on human life
itself. • Health among women is a
thing that . every man who is wise and
considerate for his race, should most
earnestly seek and promote."
Boys, when they aro boys, are queer
enough. How many ridiculous no
tions they have, and what singular de
sires, which in after life change and
shape themselves into characteristics.
Who remembers when ho would have
sold his birth-right for a rocking horse
and his new suit of clothes for a mon
key? Who forgets the sweet-faced
girl, older than himself, against'whose
golden hair he - leaned and wept • his
grief away ?—Who recollects when
the thought of being a circus rider ap ,
poared greater than
,being a Presi
dent ;.and how jealously ho watched
the little fellows that 'wore spangled
jackets and turned somersets and de
sired to become like them.? If mem
ory preserves not those caprices, or
something similar, the boy is lost in
the man. Happyvisions I they come
quickly and go quietly, leaving us eV - -

never be again.

"Nonsense! that's no test at all I"
said Agatha pettishly, the peach like
crimson mounting to her cheek;
"what can you tell about a young

the imperious young beauty, "how do

until ho is tied to our unlucky apron

She laughed as she spran,a•up to look
for her bonnet, but the long eyelashes
drooped with a suspicious moisture.
"Well," said Ruth carelessly patting
Agatha's tiny band, lam very, very
thankful that Providence didn't make
me a beauty and an heiress since it
has such a tendency to awaken sus
picion and distrust. But Agatha, in
spite of all you have said, I feel con
vinced that Charles Staunton is a no
ble fellow."
"Very likely," said Agathti, lightly,
"but hero comes Fitz Aubyii, with
those splendid horses of his, so give
me my shawl."
"And whither aro your footsteps to
be directed to day 7"
"Oh, we intend to go to that private
view of pictures in--street which I
told you of."
And Agatha swept out of the room
with the port of a queen.
The whitelustre of moonlight pour
ing doWn through the circling dome
of frosted glass, gave a life-liko glow
to the superb paintings whosozuilded
frames literally covered the walls of
the Spacious apartments. Hero and
there, groups of absorbed dilectant mo
ved, with subdued whispers and bran
dishing opera glasses, as if it were a
forbidden thing to speak above one's
breath in the presence of these fair
landseapes and scenes from history's
page. •
, Directly in front of these finest
works of art stood a pair who.had un
consciously been the object of many
a curious and whispered observation
of the other sight-seers—a tall, sty--
lish-fooking young man, with an old
lady leaning on his arm, whose, an
tique dress of snuff-colored bombazine,
a❑d oddly shaped .beaver bonnet oc
casioned a great many covert smiles
and half concealed titters from those
present. -
"Oh, by the way, Miss Milne," said
Fitz Aubyn,las in. their progress ar

" You are miStay.en; it don t hang

" Look nearer earth, if you. want

Agatha turned her head accordingly
Without remark—she smiled a littlo;
however--'twas all Pita Aubyn want:
"Should you suppose any niortal

you of Don Quixote in his youthful
days ?"
"Probably she haS money to leave

distrustful clement uppermost in her.
mind for the moment.
'Not a solitary red cent,' I know,
for I havtinquired. Sho is' in -redu

believe, but Staunton. is very fond of

"On the contrary, dear aunt, I am

Agatha hoard it all, and she also

challenge of some companion:
"Thank you, hilt don't' count upon

the opera. lam going with my aunt,
Who is passionately fond of music, so
you must excuse me for once."
"I told you so r said Fitz Aubyu,
in a solo voce tone, shrugging his shoul
ders.—" Di - you ever see such a fol
low as Staunton ?"
"Never," was Agatha's reply, but it
was so emphatically spoken that Fitz
Aubyn started. And that night while
the courted beauty brushed her luxu
riant hair, she paused many a time
and fell into a thoughtful reverie.
"Moral courage!" she murmured Co
herself. , - "I have somewhere read that
it is rieblei: 'far . ‘ _tirol u
tion which makes merrrectri,• • s.
tlo. I really wonder—" •
And there ship stopped resolutely
What a glorious bracing Now Year's
day it was! There had been just en
ough snow in the night to form a
white glistening coal over everything,
and afford an excellent excuse for the
merry sleigh that darted hither and
thither with streaming furs and jing
ling bells. All the fashionable world
was astir, the gentlemen busily con
sulting their interminable list of calls,
and the ladies putting the last touch
es to their gorgeous toilet.
There wore not many upon that day
who received more adulation than
Agatha Milne as she stood like a young
empress in her splendid drawing rooms
every mirror flashing beck her loveli
ness. Her dress was very simple—
edged around the shoulders with sno
wy ermine, and long sprays of jessa
mine drooping from her hair, yet she
knew that she had never been so beau
tiful as now, as she listened with lan
guid smiles to the compliments 'show
ered upon her. It was nothing new.
The gilded chandeliers bad been
lighted and the jeweled fingers of a ti
ny slabaSter clock on'the mantle poin
ted to a late hour, when the peal at
the door announced a now incursion
of guests, and Mr. Fitz Aubyn enter
ed, surrounded by a gay party of
young men.
"Good evening, Miss Milne ! surely
I am not too late to wish you the
happiest of all imaginable Now Years.
Whom do you suppose I saw steering
in the direction of your hospitable
mansion just now ? Here be comes to
speak for himself the Chevalier
Staunton !"
Agatha turned calmly to welcome
the new corner, and the keenest eye
could scarcely discern the deeper
shade of color that glowed on her del-•
icato cheek, as he quickly came to
greet her. •

touched his lipS to the glaSs.
- "Come, Staunton, no lack of claival

"I will drink Miss Milne's health in

Fitz Aubyn curled his lip in *con
temptuous 'silence, that was several
degrees harder to bear than spoken
obloquy, but another young man lean
ed forward to interpose his word.
"Offer the wine to him your Self,
Miss 111ilne; surely he cannot be so
lost to all sense of gallantry as to re
fuse it from your fair band."
Agatha had grown very pale, but
Without speaking, she filled ono of the
goblets, and held it toward Staunton.
"Will you take it from me r!
Staunton looked at her with calm
gravity as ho replied, 'Miss Milne I
should be a coward indeed did I allow
your persuasions to sway me from the
fixed principles which are the guiding
star of my life."
Ile bowed and withdrew. The
glass fell from Agatha's, hands and
shiirered into a thousand sparkling
fragments; she bit her lip until the
blood started, with a strange sympa
thetic thrill of exultation.. .11ad he
wavered for an instant in his determi
nation she would have despised, hiM.
"A Very poor investment those hor

Fitz Anbyn, about four weeks after
wards as he strode into the brilliantly
lighted-saloon of the club houSe. Wai

"What's the matter, Fitz ? you look
as black as a thunder cloud"' observed
a bystander who was leaning against
a marble pillar and picking his teeth
in the most epicurean manner.
"The matter ?" 'Do you remember
that magnificent Agatha Milne,: the
queen of all the beauties ?"
"Of courso I do; she hasn't lost her
wits or property I hope ?"
but I've lost the latter item
pretty effectually.. Wh . o do you sup

"I am sure I cannot guess. Do toll

"Well, she is going to bcCome Mrs.

as long as a girl wants to amuse her:

questions, she is apt to 'miler a true to

Pitz Aubyn groaned deeply; 'Alta,
considered his position too procarious
to be worth arguing.
Meanwhile, little Ruth Ellenwood
was as' busy as a bee working at her
cousin's wedding robo of spotless
white satin, and asking ten thousand
questions, the final of which always
wee: "But Agatha you would never'
tell why you didn't like him, and now
you aro just as bad—tell me, that's a
darling, why your mind was changed?"
And Agatha only laughed and crim
soned, and made the same old provok
ing answer : "Oh—been use !"
