Was much annoyed by the persistent
• attentions of Robert Lisle. He was
aviolent, self-willed, headstrong boy,
whose many good and generous qual
ities were obscured by ungovernable
passions. The only child of a rich
widower, he had been indulged until
any opposition to his wishes made
, him perfectly furious. Had', accept
ed hiS suite, he would most probably
have tired of me; but my rejection
and the knowledge that I was be
trothed to another, enraged him, and
made him More determined in bis

He went, leaving the poor old man
nearly broken hearted. For myself,
I was both glad and grieved at his
departure ; glad to be relieved from
his presence, for I dreaded him, and
grieved to have been the cause of so
much trouble.
A year passed away ; a year ,of
quiet, uneventful happiness to me ;
of what terrible suspense, agony and
dispair to thousands of others, let
those tell whose homes and hearts
have been left desolate by this horri.
ble war. At the end of the year a
change came, a great joy and a great
sorrow. My baby, my precious little
comforter, was born ; and a few
weeks afterwards my husband, a
young surgeon struggling upwards
in his profession, received a highly
advantageous offer from the military
authorities, which he felt that be had
no right to decline, although it in,
volved our separation for a. time, as
he could not take me with him. So
that when 1 had entirely recovered
my strength, he went away, and I
was left alone with my baby and my
sorrow. It is true he was in no ac
tual danger, but it was our first sepa
ration, and it was hard to bear. I
did not go home, although he propos
ed jt, thinking I should feel less lone
ly. I preferred to remain in the lit
tle cottage on the outskirts of the
town, which .we had occupied since
our marriage.
Some time after my husband's de- 1 1
parture, Robert Lisle came home on
a furlough, his first visit home since
his enlistment. He was much chang
ed. The stern' discipline of a sol
dier's life seemed to have tamed even
hiS wild spirit. He was quiet in man
ner, never drank, and indeed, seemed
so steady in every respect, that his
father's delight was equalled by his
sorrow at losing him again so soon.—
He made no attempt to renew his ac
quaintance with me, further than by
a quiet bow when we met, as we did,
once or twice, in the street. He was
a captain, having been promoted, it
is but just to say, for his gallant con
duct in some engagement, and not
from any influence of his friends.—
He remained at home but a few
weeks, and then rejoined his regiment,
somewhere in Virginia.
And now comes a part of my story
which, were it not broad noonday,
and people passing my window, 1
fear I should not have nerve enough
to write for the recollection of it
sickens me with terror.
it was the night of the ninth of
August. Robert Lisle had been gone
some weeks, and I had entirely for
gotten him ; at least the thought of
him never once crossed my mind on
that evening. I had put my baby
to sleep, and laid her on the bed; I
and then, not being sleepy myself,
went back into the sitting-room, and
sat down in the moonlight by tbo
open window. I sat there until I
was startled from my reverie by
hearing the town clock strike ten. I
arose, lowered and fastened the win
dow, and taking a lamp went through
the house to see if all the doors and
windows wore properly fastened, as
had been my habit ever since my
husband's departure. There was no
danger, I suppose, but as there was
only myself and a servant girl in the
house, it was more satisfactory to
know that_ everything is secure.—
Having completed my survey, I re
turned to the sitting room and fas
tened the door of that, which led into
the hall; then I went into the bed
room and placed the lamp on a small
table by the, bed. I had commenced
to undress, by loosening and combing
out my hair, when the thoughtstruck
me that I bad not wound up a clock
which stood on the mantel in , the
sitting-room, and I returned for the
purpose of doing so. As 1 passed
through the-door a cold shudder ran
over me, and I was seized with vague
terror, which 1, was angry with my
self for feeling, I went to the man
tel and began to wind up the clock,
when the cold shudder shook me
again so strongly that the key of the
clock dropped from my hand. In
voluntarily I laoked backward, over
roy shoulder, and there, great God !
between -me and the open door, the
light of the lamp streaming full upon
me, stood Robert Lisle ! Even in the
moment of wild terror my mind
seemed to grasp, how, I know not,
every detail Of his appearance. He
wore a dark blue uniform coat, much
soiled and disordered. His head was
bare his hair if blown back
by the wind. His face was ghastly
pale, and seemed to wear a look of
mingled rage and defiance. He did
not move, and, for an instant, Idid not
stir from my place; I stood perfectly
1 paralized. Then, shrieking, wildly
for help, I sprang to the door, which
I sought with frantic haste to unfas
ten. Doing this, I cast a terrified
glance backwards, and, to my utter
astonishment, perceived that be was
gone.. I thought of my child, and,
seized with a new fear, rushed wildly
into the bedroom. Lisle was not
there; nothing was disturbed. 3ly
baby was awake, however, awakened
by my screams, probably. The sight
of her innocent face seemed - to give
me courage. Catching her up, and
hastily wrapping her in a shawl, I
fled from the house as fast as my
trembling limbs eould carry me. My
mother lived not far away, and for
tunately I reached her house without
meeting any one. My knocks soon

laughed at me, and declared that I,
had been dreaming; a theory in :
which she persisted , :, in spite of all
that I could say to the contrary. i
Now, although I knew I MICL nut
dreamed it, I never doubted but that
it was the living Robert Lisle that I
had seen, until, about ten days later,
a letter from my husband filled me
with a new horror, and my mother
with dismay. I give the part relat
ing to my story in his own words.—
"I'am sorry to say that Robert Lisle
is killed. Re was not killed in ac
tion, but after the battle, through
his own_recklessness and want of
self-control. You have probably
read in the paporshow dreadfully our
men, especially Crawford's Brigade
to which he belonged, were cut up
and scattered. After the last charge
of that gallant and ill-fated brigade,
perceiving that the rout was hope
less, Lisle and about 15 of his COM
, pally, who were all that remained to
gether, took refuge in a a patch of
wood, intending to wait a favorable
moment to-join Pope's division, which
was momentarily expected on the
field. This they found it impossible
to do, and but that the night had
closed in, would inevitably have been
taken prisoners. As it was, they
kept bidded in the woods, listening
to the gradually increasing sounds of
the battle, which ceased at last, but,
left them no better chance of escape
for numerous parties. of the enemy
were moving about the field between
them and our lines. At length, about
ten o'clock,Robert's impatience could
no longer be restrained, and calling
to his men to follow him he made a
dash across the open space towards
our lines, the camp fires of which
they could see in the distance.—
There 'was a clear brilliant moonlight
and they had not gone far when they
Were seen by a mounted, .party of
rebels, who dashed after them, call
ing upon them to surrender. The
rest would have done, so, for it was
folly to resist, but Robert's blood was
up, and for reply, he turned and dis
charged his pistol at the leader. The
next moment he fell, shot dead. The
rest of the men were taken prisoners
excepting two, who contrived to
make their escape in the confusion.
I I have these particulars from them."
This battle was fought on the 9th
of August, shortly after ten o'clock
Robert was killed. I leave the read
er to make such explanation as he or
she pleases. For myself, if I did not
know that it was no dream, I would
most gladly persuade myself that it
was one.
A class was reciting a lesson on
metaphysics—the chapter on motives
operating on the humane will—when
a mackeral vender went by shunting,
"Alackrel, fine fresh mackrel !" Sud
denly, disturbed by the noise, the
master inquired of the class what
motives the man had for making such
a noise. No answer being made, he
said - they must be deaf as had docks
and flat as flounders, not to perceive
that it was a sell fish motive.

of the Scotch Kirk. They wore well

northern hills sharpens the appetite ;
and" When the brethren drove up to
the inn:they were almost famished
with hunger. "Now, gentlemen,just
ten minutes for breakfast," says the
coachman, as ho entered the landla

own. Ten minutes. The time was
short, so they must make the most
of it. They rushed into the room
where the breakfast was spread, and
there, basking his ample person be
fore the fire stood a portly dressed
gentleman, dressed somewhat like a
dignitary of the Church of England.
Their appetite was keener than their
curiosity, so they scarcely looked at
the stranger, but concentrated all
their attention on the viands.
Half way in the air, before the mor

were arrested by a sudden cry of
"stop 1" It was the supposed dean
or bishop. "Good heavens, gentle
men," he exclaimed, "have you so far
forgotten your sacred profession, as
to partake of food without invoking
a blessing ?" The brethren looked
like school-boys detected in some fla
grant fault ; but before they had time
to remonstrate or explain, the same
voice exclaimed, in a tone which en
forced obedience, "let us pray."—
They instinctively sprang to their
feet, and assumed the attitude of de
corous devotion while the stranger
offered up a prayer which they them
selves admitted was superior in ac
tion and expression, to those of Dr.
Drawitout himself. He had only one
fault ; he did not knoW when to stop.
The minutes rolled rapidly away, but
the stream of fervent supplication
flowed on without a break. They

the sound of his familiar voice, broke
the spell ,

She then came out with Jeff. dressed
in petticoats and wrapper or lady's

a pail upon his arm—his wife saying,
"please, gentlemen, let my old grand

Davis's whiskers, said "how are you,
