Let your summer friends go by
With the summer weather:
Hearts there are that will not fly,
i hough the storm should gather.
Summer love to fortune clings;
From the wreck it saileth.
Like the bee that spreads its wings
When the honey faileth.
Rich the soil where weeds appear;
Let the falsa bloom perish;
Flowers there are more rare and dear,
That you still may cherish;
B lowers of feeling, pure and warm,
Hearts that cannot wither;
Tilesa for thee shall hide the storm,
As the sunny weather.
From the hour when Anderson and
his little bind entered Sumter, their
position was an extremely perilous
one His friends knew this, and were
very uneasy. His devoted wife, a ot'
ot' tlio gallant soldier, lien.
Clinch, of Georgia, with her children
and nurse, were in Now York city.—
She knew, better than others, the per
ils to which her husband might be ex
posed from the ferocious foes without
and possibly traitors within. With an
intensity of anxiety not easily imagin
ed, she resolved in ber mind a hundred
projects for his relief. All were futile.
At length, while passing a sleepless
night, she thought of a faithful ser
geant who had been with her husband
in Mexico, and had married their
equally faithful cook. It he could be
placed besido Maj. Anderson in Sumter,
the officer would have a tried and trus
ty friend, on whom he could rely in an
emergency. W here was he f For
seven long years the}' had not seen his
face. Seven years before, they had
heard he was in New York She re
solved to seek him. At dawn she went
for a cit}- directory The sergeant's
name was Peter Hart. She made a
memorandum ot tlio residence ot every
Hart in the city; and in a carriage she
sought a day and a half, for the man
she desired to find. Then she obtained
a cue. He might he in the police es
tablishment; there was a man of that
name who had been a soldier She
called on the superintendent of the
police, and was satisfied. She left a
request tor Peter Hart to call on her.
Mrs. Anderson had resolved to go to
Fort Snmpter, if he would accompany
her. She was an invalid. Her physi
cians, and friend, to whom she alone
had intrusted her resolve, protested
vehemently against the project. He
believed its execution would imperil
her lite She had resolved to go; and
would listen to no protests or entreat
ies. Seeing her determination, he
gave her every assistance in his power
Peter Hart came, bringing with him
his faithful Margaret. They were de
lighted to see their former friend and
mistress. Hart stood erect before her,
with his heels together, soldier like,as
if to receive orders.
'I have sent for you Hurt.' said Mrs.
Anderson, 'to ask you '<> do 1110 a fa
'Anything Mrs. Anderson I will do,'
was the prompt reply.
'But,' said she, 'it may be more than
you imagine.'
'Anything Mrs. Anderson wishes,'
he again replied.
'I want you to go with me to Fort
Sumter.' she said. Hart looked at Mar
garet for a moment and then promptly
'1 will go, madame.'
'But Hart,' continued the earnest
woman, 'I want you to stay with the
Major Y'ou will leave }'Our family and
give up a good situation.' Hart again
glanced inquiringly at Margaret, and
then quickly replied.
'I will go madame.'
'But Margaret,' Mrs. Anderson said,
turning to Hart's wife, 'what do you
say V
'lndado, ma'am, and its Margaret's
sorrow she can't do as much for you as
Peter can,' was the warm-hearted wo
man's reply.
•When will you go. Hart?' asked Mrs.
'To NIGHT, ma'am, if it DO your
wish,' replied her true and abiding
'Be hero tomorrow night at six
o'clock,' said Mrs Anderson, 'and I
will be read}'. Good bye Margaret.'
All things were speedily arranged.
They were only to take a satchel each
tor the journey. Hart was to play tho
part of servant to Mrs. Anderson, and
to be ready at all times to second her
every word and act. What difficulties
and trials awaited them no one knew.
The brave, loving, patriotic woman
did not care. It was enough for her
to know that her husband and country
was in peril, and sbo was seeking to
serve them.
The travelers left New York on the
3d of January. None but her good
physician —not even the nurse of the
children—knew her destination. Sho
was completely absorbed with the sub-
mmwmx ipsicsJs
ject of her errand. They traveled
without intermission until they reach
ed Charleston, late on Saturday night.
She neither ate, drank nor slept that
time. From Cape Fear to Charleston
she was tl e only woman in the train,
which v.:-, ii:'c.l with rough men hur
rying to Cliurk.sioii to join the attack
on Fort Sumter. They were mostly
shaggy haired, brutal and profane, who
became drunken and noisy, and tilled
the cars with tobacco smoke.
'Can't you prevent their smoking
here?' she gently asked the conductor.
His only reply was,
♦Wal, I reckon they'll have to smoke.'
Ilcr appeal to two rough men in
front of her was more successful. With
sweet voice, that touched the chords
of their better nature, she said,
•Will you please throw away your
cigars? they make mo so sick.' One ot
them glanced at the speaker, and said
to his companion.
'Let's do it; she's a lady.' During
the remainder ot' the journey these
rude men were respectful. In that
train of cars Mrs. Anderson was com
pelled to hear her man cursed with the
most horrid oaths, and threatened with
savage violence should lie tall into the
hands of an exasperated mob. But
she endured all heroically.
It was late in the evening when they
reached Charleston. When the drunk
en soldiers were carried out she asked
an agent at the station for a carriage.
'Where arc you from ?' he asked.
'New York,' she replied.
'Where are you going?'
'To Charleston.'
'Where else?'
'Don't know; get me a carriage to go
to the Mills House.'
'There are none.'
'I know better.'
'I can't get one.'
'Then give me a piece of paper that
I may write a note to Gov. Pickens;
he will send me one.'
The man yielded to the Governor's
name. He supposed she must he some
one of importance; and in a few min
utes afterwards she and Hart were in
a carriage, on their way to the Mill's
House. There the parlor into which
she was ushered was filled with excited
people of both sexes, who were exas
perated because of her husband's move
ments. His destruction of the old flag
start' at Moultrie was considered an
insult to the South Carolinians that
might not be forgiven. Their language
was extremely violent.
Mrs. Anderson met her brother at
the Mill's House. On the following
morning he procured from Gov. Pick
ens a permit for her to go to Fort Sum
ter. She sought one tor Hart. The
Governor could not allow a man to be
added to the Sumter garrison, ho said,
he would be held responsible to the
Commonwealth of South Carolina for
any mischief that might ensue in con
sequence ! Mrs. Anderson did not
conceal the scorn which the suggestion
and excuse elicited. The State of
South Carolina—now claiming to be a
sovereign power among the nations of
the earth —endangered by the addition
of one man to a garrison of seventy
or eighty, while thousands of armed
hands ere ready and willing to strike
them ! Pickens was her father's old
'Tell him,' she said,'that I shall take
Ilart to the fort, with or without a
iter words of scorn and her demand
were repeated to the Governor. He
saw the absurdity oi his conduct, and
gave a pass for liart, but coupled the
permission with a requirement that
her messenger should obtain from Maj.
Anderson a pledge that ho should not
bo enrolled as a soldier The pledge
was exacted, given, and faithfully kept.
Peter Hart served his country there
better than if ho had been a mere com
At ten o'clock on Sunday morning,
the 6th of January, Mrs. Anderson
with Hart and a few personal friends
then in Charleston, started in a small
boat for Sumter, carrying with her a
mail bag for tbe garrison, which had
lately often been kept back. It was a
most charming morning. The air was
balmy, and the bosom of tbe bay un
rippled, Nature inviting to delicious
enjoyment; but the brave woman ab
sorbed in tbe work of hei holy mission
of love and patriotism, heeded not the
invitation. Everywhere were seen
strange banners. Among them all
was not a solitary Union dag; she felt
like an exile from her native land.—
Presently, as the boat shot around a
point of land, some one exclaimed,
'There's Sumter!'
She turned, and saw the national
ensign floating gently over it. It
seemed, as it waved languidly in the
almost still air. like a signal ofdistress
over a vessel in the midst of terrible
breakers. 'The dear ojd flag!' she exj
claimed and burst into tears. For the
first time since she left New York, emo
tion had conquered will
Sentinel boats were now passing,
and proper passwords were given.—
Vol. LVI. No. 47.
They approached Sumter, when a
watchman on its walls trumpeted the
'Who conies there?'
A gentleman in the boat replied
through a trumpet,
•Mrs. Maj. Anderson.'
She was formally ordered to advance.
As her friends conveyed her tip the
rocks to the wharf, her husband came
running out of the sally pert. He
caught her in his arms, and exclaimed
in a vehement whisper, for her ear
only, 'My glorious wife !' and carried
her into the fort.
•1 have brought you Peter Hart,'
she said The children are all well. I
return to-night.' Then turning to the
accompaning friends, she said, -tell me
when the tide serves; I shall go back
with the boat.' She then retired with
her husband to his quarters, nearly
over the sally port, and took some re
freshments; the first since leaving New
The tide served in the course of two
hours. When Mrs. Anderson was
placed in the boat f.y her husband,she
experienced almost irresistible desire
to draw him after her—to take him
away from the great peril. With the
splashing of the oars, when the boat
was shoved off, came a terrible impres
sion as if she had buried her husband,
and was returning from his funeral.—
But she leaned lovingly, by faith on
the strong arm of the All-Wise-Father,
and received strength. Invalid and a
woman as she was, she had performed
a great service to her husband and
country. She had given them a faith
ful and useful friend in Peter llart—
how faithful and Useful the subsequent
history of Foit Sumter, until it passed
into the hands of armed insurgents,
three months later, only feeblv reveals.
I. nheeding the entreaties of friends,
who tried to persuade her to remain,
and offered to bring hcrfamily to her;
and the assurance of a deputation of
Charlestonians, who waited upon her
that she might reside in their city,
dwell in Sumter, or wherever she pleas
ed, Mrs. Anderson started for the na
tional capitol that evening, accompa
nied by Major Anderson's brother.—
| Charleston was no place lor her while
her husband was under the old flag;
and sho would not add to his cares by
: remaining with him in the lort.
A bed was placed in the cars, and on
j that she journeyed comfortably to
J Washington. She was insensible when
she arrived at Willard's Hotel, into
which she was conveyed by a dear
friend from New York, a powerful man
whose face was the tirst that she rec
ognized on the return of her con
sciousness. After suffering for forty
eight hours from utter exhaustion, she
proceeded to New York, and was for a
long time threatened with brain fever.
Thus ended the mission of this bravo
. woman. She alone had done what the
I government would not, or dared not
j do. She Itad not sent, but taken a val
i u:tble reinforcement to Fort Sumter.—
! When we look back to the beginning
of the great civil war, the eye of just
appreciation perceives no heroism more
genuine and useful than that displayed
bv this noble woman ; and history and
romance will ever delight to celebrate
her deed— Lossiny's Pictorial History of
tfir Civil War.

A Virginia rebel, who has issued a
book giving his experience as a pris
oner in the hands of the Federals at
Point Lookout and Elmira, tells the
following story:
The boys are laughing at the sum
mons which S., one of my fellow Pe
tersburgers, got to-day from a negro
sentinel S. had on when captured,
and I suppose still possesses, a tall
beaver of the antique pattern, consid
ered inseparable from extreme respect
ability in the last decade, and for many
a year before. While wandering
around the enclosure, seeking, 1 BUS
peet ' what he might devour,' he acci
dentally stepped beyond the 'dead
line,' and was suddenly arrested by a
summons from the nearest negro on
the parapet, who seemed to be in doubt
whether so well dressed a man could
be a 1 reb' and therefore whether he
should be shot at once.
' White man, you b'fong in dar!'
1 Well, ain't you got no bettor sense
dan to cross dat liDe?'
' 1 did not notice the lino.'
: Well, you had better notice it, and
dat quick, or I'll blow half dat nail
kag off!'
