The_garden at the rear of the edma

early. cabbages and potatoes ; every
thing bore the look of humble pros
perity ; from the blue smoke curling

where the cows were lying, peacefully
ruminating. A broad river, glisten

and spires which rose on the other
side. • -
" Mother, honey, I can't -keep -my
eyes off that dreadful place !" said
she, turning as she spoke to an elder
ly woman who sat knitting on a bench
near the fire. . .
" Musha, nuashn; what goodll that

the docl. also. " Conie in, now," put

" Here's your feither comixe, and

Kate ran hastily into a bedroom,
as her father entered the-kitchen.
" There's no chance for the poor

broad-faced, good-humored looking
man came forward and sat down on
" Chance ?" said he, roughly, while
his face clouded. " Sorry. chance!

houses rose in terraces and steep
lanev,aud was shedding the lastbeams
of hfs radiance on the large dark stone
building which crowned the height.
The rod light seemed to be concen
trated on one part of the blinding,
where there was an iron gateway,
spiked and double-locked. Far above
m the dark massive walls was a small
black door. And beneath this door c
and around this gateway, men were
busy, putting up strong timber rail

among the workmen, and wore driven
back by officials in uniform, and a
Inside the massive Walls, other
workmen were busy, brit ' the work
was commonplace enough. Some
thing was wrong with the main sew

and now when the city docks and
bells were striking six, they were tak

coats, and leaving their work till-next
There were no roUghjests among
them. One man laughed as his com

ditch'whence they had emerged ; but
his merriment was checked by an in
voluntary look , from the. others to
wards the far side of the yard, where
a man in a felon's dress and with
manacled hands was walking slowly
up and down.. ;
" Lord have mere' , on his sowl !"
muttered an old mason, compassion

• Whether the - prisoner had caught
the sound of his name or not, he rais

"Lord, help him I" said two or time
of the men, " for makin' away with

I didn't-lave the horscs , all this time,

sight of his forgotten team, who had
dragged tlia - plow after them to the
adjoining meadow, and were there. •
A siiddeji thought struck him, and
he hastily returned to the house with
his face flushed. As he entered- the
- kitchen he ran against the smith,
Martin Leary, who was staring about
' Martin, you're true and holiest,
I know; and you'd do a good turn as
soon as any man I know," said Pat
"There's me hand on it," returned
the smith, bringing down his black
fist on the other's , shoulder. In a few,
words he was told what was required
of him, and also of the bright thought
that had just occurred to Pat Mouin.
" Here 1 Let me at it," cried the
smith, enthusiastically grasping his
chisel and hammer. Thereupon the
farmer led him into the little room,
where Kate was administering hot tea
and smoking - griddle cake-to the'poor
fellow, who , ate and drank almost me
chanically, with his eyes fixed on the
pretty face and busyJhauds that min
istered to him.
"Here, Tim's some one to do you
a good turn. Horrid out your hands,
Me boy ! Peggy," turning to hismife,
- who was devoutly groaning and Wr
ing her. beads in a .corner, "go and
get me ould clothes, and Kitty, run
for that yellow clay in the kitchen

bid, and when she returned with the
clay, she was, desired to keep out cf.
the room for a few minutes.
- " Mother, honey, what are they do

" Sorra bit o' trio knows, acnshla.

addressing her husband, who came

piece of iron to melt, Martin. And,
KW, you've to bnry them t clothes.
Come, en' I'll show you where." Half
an hour afterwards he was riding
slowly to thd fair on his young horse,
which was to be sold, casting cau
tious glances backward at the field by
the river, where he could see his horses
plowing, and his new servant boy
toiling quietly after them. Such con
fusion and excitement had not been
known for years in the old 'cathedr.il
town. Police there were. none in
those days ; but the whole garrison
had turned out in search of the es:
coped felon. Groups of red-coats
pe bulated the- streets, the roads
leading to the country, and oven the
lanes and meadows. Hundreds of
country folk, who had come in to see
the execution, also crowded the town.
The throng on the prii3onbill was so
;dense that the farmer co uld scarcely
proceed a step. Th€ 4, were all talk;
ing vociferously in Irish or English,
every one giving his or her version of
the wonderful story. Some declared
that the .Prisoner had not escaped
and that it was a device of the au
thorities to conceal some foul play.
When Pat Moran had elbowed his
way frith great difficulty alniost to
the prison gates, he looked eagerly
for the objects of his search, some of
Tim's own people, whom he disclv
ered sitting and standing together in
'an excited group.
"Pat Moran, d'ye bleeve this ?"
said one of the men, hoarsely, clutch
ing the farmer's coat. D'ye Meow:
that poor Tim , has got out 'of their
cursed thrall ?"
" John Welsh, Tim did get out."
" Whisht I Lord save us 1" they
all broke in with one voice.
" Trisn'tf safe to say niore. I'm
tbrimblin'that some Ce them fellows
wid the brass buttons will hear me,"
. glancing t and the turnkey, dimly
visible behi d the iron grating ; "but

The prison wanders were not long
in discovering by what means' the
prisoner had effected his eseape, and
from the opening the search was car
ried aboveground to the mouth of
the sewer where it' emptied itself in
to the river. A venturesotne spirit
even crept up a few dozen yards of
the 'black - passage,.but speedily re
ttrued, 'vo.wing that nothing would

was taking, bbegaan to introduce other
topics; but with little success, as her
husbaid" grew sleepy and stupid.
Kate sat quite Went, and. Welith was
sad. Thuathey sat until twelve had
struck, and then Welsh and the farm
er rose, to walk on to the cross-roads,
where the car was to be in_ readiness
with his relatives as convoy and body
guard. -Welsh shook Mrs. Mortin's
hanthand, andlissed it in the full
ness of his emotion, uttering ' broken
,words of gratitude and blessing.
Then he turned to' Hate,...whe was
weeping silently; he _strove to speak,
but words failed hint, and htg grasped
her hand passionately and turned
away. "I'll shut the gate afther ye,"
said Kate, following them_ out oat°
the darknesii. So she did, and Welsh
delayed a moment,. helping, herto
find the loop and -staple,- probably
thongh be strove to._ put; a few hasty
words• together, which had no refer
ence to. the gate.
•‘.ll,eeP up our heart, Rate, agra,"he
whispered; "I'll send ye a letther
whin I get safe over, place - God!"
Welsh sailed for Englandin a small
coasting vessel, and thence to Liv
erpool, where he remained concealed
for some weeks untll the ardor of the
pursuit after him had abated; he em
barked on board a fast-sailing - vessel
—for there were no steamers in thfase
days—for America. - When he landed
he sought the home of a relative who
had been settled in the, country for
some years, and, by industry and
strict honesty—for the :dreadful less
on taught him was hot wasted—he
very soon became - independent of his,
coasin, and had his own snug hotige
nest ti riving farm.
He wrote regularly to the Morans
to thefather first, then to the mother,
and, lastly, to the daughter. When I
he bad amassed a little money he
role again to the farmer, telling the
astonished man his hopes and wishes
concerning Kate. Peggy Moran an
grily declared her husband to have
been blind alt along—as- there is no
doubt he walL-hut she positively re
fused to listen fora moment to the
audacious suitor. However; "time
works' wonders." Her violent ofipo--
sition had died away gradually, and
Kate waited patiently. At the end
of five Te,ars, her father being then
dead. the •and her mother departed
for the and beyond the sea..
• Thisitme story was relatZd to the
writer - iby ; (l, gray-haired widow; - 7, an
Irish, emigrant who had returned; af
ter many years, from America, to 'die
at home. Though her form was bent
•by the weight of-more than seventy
years, herjnemou was clear and re
tilitfve, and-her voice trembled and
her'clim blue eyes
.sparkled, as of
yen., with excitement in her recital
of the perils undergone by Welsh,the
lour of her youth, and the fond and
faithfal husband whose joys and sor
sows she had shared for forty Years.
And now she had come home to die
in the little cottage by the river
where she had first known- him, and
where she had first succored him in
in the hour of his danger- and dis
tress. On'y its a poor thing to think
,ain't share , his, grave in the
church-yard where his people lie,'con
eluded the widow, sadly, 'but bless
God. we'll soon weer again."
THE DEAD :SOLDIXEIS TEMPE

The soldser.of ancient time Was a_
mechanical power, owned and opera
ted by thOse who, in the parlance of
these days, had a divine right to their
service. They were einployed in sus=

in_ extending the Jurisdiction of their
Masten. Theyy lived without =On-

like brutes were forgotten by the liv
The ancient military triumph
graeld with the spoils of victory, and
distinguished pnsOners as trophies,
was always given in honor of official
power, never in = the interest of the
. soldier. Bay and laurel adorned the
htow of royal or . distinguished per
sons. . They Originated in the weak
ness and pride of imperial fancy, and
were epheineral in their character.
Nero, who celebrated his victory over
the Greek ballad-singersby - a display
of the resources of absolute rule, left
Rome a fugitive with a single attend
ant. Belisanrius, whose splendid tri
umph when returned from extensive
conquests was the admiration of the
world, lived to repeat in the same
street which was the scene of his tri
