POE T R -
The Undiscovered Country.
Could we but know
The land that ends our dark, uncertain travel,
Where he those happier hills and meadows low.
Ah. if beyond the spirit's inmost cavil
Aught of that country could we surely know,
Who would not go?
Might we hut hear
The hovering angel's high imagined chorus.
Or catch, betimes, with wakefnl-eygs and clear,
One radiant vista of the rwalm before us—
With one rapt moment given to see and hear,
Oh, Mio would fear?
Were we quite sure
To tind the peerless friend who left us lonely,
Or there, by some celestial stream as pure,
To gaze 111 eyes that here were lovelit only—
Their weary mortal coil, were we quite sure,
Who would endure?
YN. GOOD STORY.
THE FEDERAL CHAMELEON.
A Sketch of Scr6uting Strategy.
One evening about an hour after the :
sun had gone down, a couple of stout
men. dressed in soiled rebel uniforms,
each holding in his hand a good Aus
trian rifle, tapped at the door of a
small frame building near the C
road in Virginia.
The knock was answered by an old
woman whose face was almost con
cealed by the tangled masses of her
grav, uncombed and dissheveled hair.
'And what do you want here?' she
exclaimed, as her deep set eyes flash
ed on the two men. ' I haven't the i
smallest hit. of johnny cake in the
house to otter ye, for it was all —'
' No, no/ interrupted one of the sol
diers,' ' we don't want anything to eat,
but we want you to tell us, and that
in quick time, too, whether or not
vou've seen a slight but strong looking
slip of a man go by here of late.
* Dressed in blue, and carrying a
double barrelled rifle/ added the oth
' Iley, hey I' cr'ed the hag, lifting j
her hands and peaking in a sharp, an- j
gry voice, ' if' you hadn't interrupted j
me. 1 reckon you would a heard me
speak of him just now, as he was tiie j
verv man who como here and bought 1
all iiiv cakes. It was about two hours
"' Which way did he go after he had j
left YOU ?' enquired both men eagerly. !
' Before ! answer that question, you
must tell me who he is, said tiie old
woman with the curiosity natural to
' lie's a celebrated Union scout whom
we call the ' Federal Chameleon,' be
cause he changes his uniform so often,
■sometimes it is blue, other limes grey,
and he has been seen wearing the dis
guise of an old farmer, lie has shot I
more of our men than is pleasant, and ;
we have a roving commission from our j
colonel to go and hunt after him, and
capture him if we can, either dead or
dive. And now we have replied to
you.' continued the speaker a little pa
tiently, ' we demand that you answer
our questions and—' !
' Demand !' interrupted the hag in |
shrill piercing tones. 'ls that the j
proper way to speak to a woman an
old woman at that ?'
'Come, come, answer us if you
please/ cried the soldier in a milder
tone. 'I moan no harm —its only my
way of speaking.'
Wel perhaps I may forgive, and
perhaps not/ said the old woman, '
shaking her head. 'How far is it to
vcur camp from here ?'
' What is that to you? what has
that to do —'
' There you go again with your cur
bed incivility ?' shrieked the hag fierce
v, 'but you shall answer my question
before you get another single word out
of me. Now, then, bow far is it to
your camp from here, and how many
men have you in and around it ? 1 in
tend to carry your fellows some corn
cakes, d'ye see, and I want to know
the number of mouths I have to cook
'Oh, in that case,' said the rebel, ' I j
do not see any reason why I should
not satisfy- you. .Our camps, then, are
about five miles from Ifere. near the
cross roads, and our number may be
about five thousand.'
' That will do/ cried the old woman
with a grin of satisfaction—' yes that
will do. And now you are sure that
the man who came here to buy his |
supper is the one you are after?'
• We arc sure of it, for although we
have never seen the man's face, we'd
know him by tho double barrelled ri
fle, as nobody else in the Yankee army
carries a weapon of that kind.'
'Ay. ay. it's the right one, then/
said the'hag. 'After he had finished
and paid me for his meal, he says to
me: 'Friend 1 should like to put up
here for the night it you have no ob
jections.' But as I did not like tho
idea of accommodating a Yankee any
more than I could help, I told him
there was no room for him, as 1 ex
pected visitors before many- hours.—
■ Well, then/ says he, 'can't you tell j
me of a place where I cab pass the j
night a little comfortable? .You see,' !
he added, looking toward his double
barreled rifle. '1 don't like to camp out
as it looks like rain, and this piece j
might get hurt by it.' I know of no |
place, 1 answered, short of four miles j
from here in an old barn which is tight j
enough, 1 think, to keep off the rain.
1 Four miles is a pretty long distance,'
said he, ' and as 1 have been tramping
about considerable to-day, I don't feel
much like carrying this heavy load so i
far,' pointing at his knapsack as he j
spoke. ' Will you be kind enough to j
let it remain till morning?' 'Well,
yes,' said I, hesitating u little, and
throwing a glance at the well tilled
pocket book in his hand, lie under
stood the look and gave me a green
bark dollar. All right said 1, and be
then departed, saying he would call for
bis luggage in the morning, after be
should wake from bis sleep in the barn.'
'Now, then/ continued the woman
' which will you do—go after him at
once, or wait in ambush for him till
The two soldiers drew back a few
paces and held a short consultation,
after which they advanced to the side
of the woman.
' We will go now,' said the one who i
had spoken first; ' that's if you can de
scribe to us the exact position of the ;
' I don't think that 1 could describe
it so you could find it in the dark, but
as I am willing to do everything in my
power for the confederacy, 1 will go
with you and show you the place.'
' That's l ight,' answered the rebel,
'and we will see that you are reward
ed for your zeal.'
■ I don't want any reward for help
ing my countrymen/ repeated the hag
• 1 am always ready to help along the
With these words she disappeared
into another room, but came forth in
a few moments, with a grey blanket
thrown oyer her shoulders.
'I took this out of Yank's haver
sack/ said she with a short,dry laugh; j
' Don't you think it becomes me?'
'Aye, aye, my good woman, very ;
much ; but lead on if' you please, tor
we have no time to loose.'
' Forward, march '.' she exclaimed, 1
imitating the voice of a man with
strong lungs. ' Forward, march ! •
Close up ! close up !' And she moved
along the road at the tottering paee to j
a person of her years.
The night by this time had become ,
verv dark. The sky was obscure with j
thick driving clouds, and the wind
screamed and roared among the tall j
pines that towered upon each side of j
the road. Occasionally a branch
wrenched from its native trunk would
fall into the witha terrible crash, ;
and more than once the rebels started
back and cocked their pieces in the i
belief that the din was caused by the I
discharge of some yankee rifle.
' Ila fha ! ha 1' laughed the hag upon !
one of these occasions, • it seems to me ;
that you are easily startled. Don't j
you think your commander might have j
picked a pair of bolder hearts than
yours for this expedition ?
'You'd better keep a silent tongue',
in your head, my good woman, until
you have an opportunity of witnessing ,
as many battles as we have, answered •
one of the men, 'a good soldier is al- 1
ways on his guard.'
k Aye, aye !' replied the old woman, |
' but you should know how to distin- ,
guish between the cracklin' of a branch ;
and tbe ring of.a rifled musket.'
The rebel did not relish the noise
made by the loud shr.U tones of tbe fe
male guide, and in order t > put an end
to it be controlled himself sufficiently
not to reply to her last remark. The
party then continued on their way in
silence —which was not broken by
either of them until they had gone
about three miles, and a loud clear
challenge suddenly startled the rebels,
' Halt! Who comes there
' Friend' answered the old woman
in a ringing voice; 'friend with pris
' We are betrayed V yelled her com
panions. and, even as the words passed
their lips, they were surrounded by a
dozen Federal soldiers, one ol whom
carried a lantern.
As the rays of the light flashed upon
the hag, the rebels saw the gray hair,
the blanket, and female apparel drop
to the ground, revealing tbe slight but
iron like frame of a Union soldier in
the prime of life.
'it is he, by— !' exclaimed the pris
oners simultaneously, as their glances
wandered to the double barrelled rifle
which he now held in his hand : 'it is
he —the scout —the Federal Chamele
'Ave, aye!' answered the latter, as
he leaned upon his weapon, with a
quiet smile, ' you are trapped sure
enough, thanks to my disguise, which
is only one of the many which I cai i \
in my knapsack. Allow me to express
aswnsroswsys, saffiHHMK ©acsMFsr
my thanks to you for the information | 1
you gave me in regard to the position j <
of your camp and the number of your ! !
men ; 1 have already sent a message '
to in}* Colonel in relation to the mat- 1
ter. and I perceive lie has commenced ; <■
to act upon it.' (
And as he spoke he pointed down s
the road where the dark outline ot ■
troops firmed into line might be faint- 1
They are soon in motion, and in the ■ '
course of half an hour the booming ot j ;
cannon, the rattling of musketry, and 1
the cheering of Federal troops pro- 1
claimed that the combat had comment*- :
ed. The din continued for about an i '
hour when the prisoners heard from •'
others who were brought to share their
quarters, that the Southern troops had
been surprised and totally routed.

A Horrible Murder iu Warrington Town
ship, York County, Pa.
On last evening. June Ith, a most
brutal and heartrending murder was
committed in Warrington township,
this county, at the residence ot Mr.
George Squibb about three miles from
liossville. and about the same distance
from Lcwisborry. The victims of this j
most inhuman butchery are Mr. George ;
Squibb, an aged citizen, his wife and '
grand daughter. These were tiieonly
persons living in the house. Mr. Squibb j
is still living (since dead) butisuncon- !
scious, and cannot possibly survive.— ;
He has fourteen wounds inflicted about j
the head, and three are within the
compass of the temple, and thirteen ,
penetrate the brain. These wounds j
appear to have been inflicted with a
sharp instrument similar to a mortis
The old lady is still living, and Dr. !
\V L'. Xebinger, of Lewisberrv, the at- j
tending physician, entertains slight
hopes of her recovery. She lias three I
wounds, all about the head, which Scctn
to have been made with a slung shot <
The little grand daughter was killed
instantly. The blows were inflicted
with a club, and were evidently dealt
by a left handed man.
The murder was undoubtedly com- i
initted early on Sunday evening, while '
the family were making preparations
for retiring. Two persons at least, i
must have been engaged in this hellish ;
work. Circumstances go to show that j
Mr. Squibb must have been called from ;
the house, and was struck by his as j
sailant as lie entered the porch. Every- j
thing indicates that a severe and des- j
perate fight occurred before Mr. Squibb
yielded to the blows of the fiend who
sought his life.
While this fearful tragedy was he
ing enacted in front of the house, the
work of death was going on inside. —
The old lady and little grand daughter
could offer but feeble resistance, and
were soon dispatched and rendered in
The murder was not discovered till
near noon to-day, (Monday,) when a
neighbor, had occasion to send his son
to tho house of Mr. Squibb on an er
rand. The boy speedily returned with
the appalling intelligence that Mr.
Squibb was laying on the porch dead
and horribly mutilated. The alarm
was immediately given. The citizens
flocked from all directions, consterna
tion was depicted on every counte
nance. Dr. Nehinger was immediate
ly called in, and examined the wounds
and did all that medical skill could do
to mitigate the sufferings, and restore
to consciousness the surviving victims
of this horrible tragedy.
The perpetrators of this outrage
were doubtless in search of money. It
was well known that Mr. Squibb had a
considerable sum in the house. The
upper bureau drawer was broken open
and a pocket book supposed to con
tain two hundred dollars taken, but as
the money was secreted in diflercnt
parts of the house, Iho greater portion
escaped the notice of the murderers.
It is stated that two suspicious look
ing strangers were seen in the neigh
borkood on Sunday, but w hiie the in
vestigations were going on, a man by
the name of William Donovan, famil
iarly known as Irish Bill, who resides
about a mile from tbe house where the
murder was committed, was arrested
and brought before the Coroner's Ju
ry and subjected to a close and tolling
examination. The evidence against
him, although of a circumstantial char
acter, wfts nevertheless sufficiently
strong to authorize the Jury in com
mitting him for trial at the August
term of the Court.
It seems that Donovan, about tivc
years ago, in a wanton and cruel man
ner beat one of Mr. Squibb's cows sc
that it died, and Squibb brought suil
a-rainst him to recover the price of the
animal, it was decided in his favor
and when Donovan was obliged to pa)
the money, ho made threats that In
would have revenge on Squibb if i

wtier of a small property on the north

everal executions are pending against

new that the Squibbs had money in
he house, and probably availed- hini
clfof the opportunity to gratify his
evenge and supply himself with the
noney to settle his liabilities at tho
nine time. The wounds upon the
leads ot the victims are all on the right
ide, showing pretty cone'usively that
hey were inflicted by a left handed
lerson, and Donovan is a left handed
Buried Alive—A Horrible Death.
On Wednesday of last week a man
>y the name of William F. Bond was
juried alive while digging in a sand
.tank a short distance from his mill,
in Fall creek. Mr. llond, with two of
lis workmen, were hauling dirt from a
