[A French paper relates a touching incident
of the campaign. While a Sister of Charity was
ministering to a dying soldier on the field of
battle, a cannon ball struck her and killed her
on the spot.]
Dead on the corpse -strewn battle plain
Where war's dread work Is done,
Sbe lies amid the heaps of slain,
The pure and holy Non.
She saw the strlekeu soldier fall,
And,c'er the strife was o'er,
She rushed, unheeding blade or ball,
To staunch his flowing gore ;
To gently raise his clroopinghead,
To cool his lips of flame—
To whiver, ere bis spirit ilex],
The Saviour's holy name ;
And on from one to one to pass,
Midst those who, living yet,
Lay groaning on the crimsoned grass
Their streaming blood bad wet :
With saintly love and tenderness
Their suffering hearts to aid,
Whate'er the color of the dress
Through which the wounds were made.
And—ia whatever form ofspeecla.
They prayed to God above—
Unto their dying lips to reach
• The emblem of His love.
But oh! the battle's thundering swell .
Had rolled not far away,
And still the murderous missiles fell
Where dead and dying lay.
Bullets, ill-sped, came whistling by,
Huge shot tore up the ground—
*And like meteors &am on Lief,
Spread fruit destruction round.

"I'm so glad he's gone," said Mabel
Delmont, with a long breath, as she came

sat picking plumbs, with an eve to the
peserve kettle, which Dorcas Nun, the
hired help. was then hoisticg on the fire,
at the kitchen at the end of the long

Mabel," said Mrs. Delmont, reprovingly,

" AG, that's all at an end," said Mabel
standing close to a glass to refasten the
blue ribbon how at her throat. and half
smiling at the dimpled little apple blos
som of a face that the old fashioned mir
ror reflected.
"What do you mean, Mabel ?" asked
Mr& Delmont, stopping abruptly in her
" I mean' I have broken, the egage

" Mabel!"
" I have, mamma, sure and certain !"
asserted the little beauty, nodding her
head until the blue violets she had twisted
into her hair fell out in a little fragrant

" Oh, I don't know, I believe I was get
ting tired of him. He's so prosy, you
know—go wearvsomelv sensible ?"
. . .
" I understand," said her mother, dryly.
"Since Mr. Fernandez came to town you
girls have all been bewitched otter his
foreign airs and gi acts."
Mabel blushed to a vivid scarlet, but
she tried to laugh unconcernedly.
"Well, mamma, he is delightful," she
owned, "and of course, one likes a little
style in one's gentleman attandent. He
has written such exquisite gems for my al
bum ; and Sarah Prey and Helen Daleson
both say they never read such poetry us
he writes."
Mrs. Delmont shouk her sage, mother

" M deur," she said warmly, "yon had
better not let this picnieing, waltzing
and album twitting go too far; remember
you don't even know wha this Fernandez
'lndeed, mamma, but I do !" cried
Mabel. triumphantly. "He is the only

Indies; who owns nobody knows' how
many slays, and plantations, and silver
mines; and, mamma; you won't be vexed
now, will you ? but he has sent me the
loveliest little diamond cross in the world.
And the little 'curinette drew the spark

" You mu4seud it back at once," said
Mrs. Delmonfr resnlutely.

at the sight of the pretty little creature's
"Well, then," she said, almost gondg
ingly, "it must be the last gift you accept
from a stranger like this."
And Mabel promised anything and
everything, except to summon buck her

" No, mamma, but silver mines and
rosewood plantations will," Mabel an
swered gleefully, as she ran away up stairs
to get the slippers.. Nor did she deem it
necessary to confess, this blue-eyed little
flirt, that they were the identical slippers
she had commenced three months ago
for Wylde Emerson, before the Star of
St. George Fernandez had dawned on the
tillage horizon.
Mr. Fernandez was the lion in Eskdale
society that winter. Tho marriageable
girls raved about him ; the widows plum
ed themselves for fresh conquests, ano the
gentlemen all pronounced him a "con
founded humbug," a very sure sign of
popularity in the feminine world. And
Mabel, as the prettiest of all the pretty.
girls in Eekdale, dreamed of a wedding
ring, hosts of black servitors, and rustic
arbors, constructed under the spice trees
of far-off isles in the west.
Meanwhile the slippers progressed with
laudable rapidity.
"Of course, I must have them made
up," Mabel said to Sarah Prav, as she dis
played the gorgeous rose-buds of the em
broidery, "and how on earth shall I get
the right Biz:
"Ask him what number be Wears!"
suggested Sarah.

Mabel, a little 4lubiouslr, '
"Of course it would; where would be
the impropriety, I'd like to know,". said
Sarah, authoritatively. "I'm as good as
married, and I think I ought to be a
judge in that case."
"To be sure," said Mabel. "But 're
member it is a great secret."
"Oh, of course," said Sarah, and the
small conspiracy was settled.

positive on the subject, Mabel could pot

to glance doubtfully around.
The room ‘-as very dirty, and smelt
very strong of stale tobacco smoke,
a flat, black bottle on the table, labelled
"Holland Gin," suggested anything rath

close beside it was the pen, while the
half-finishethpoem was still incomplete,
and a volume of "Selections from Eng

" How beautiful !" murmured Mabel,
reading the musical verses.
" Yes," said Sarah Pray; "bat how
funny here's the same thing exactly—

"So he has," admitted Mabel, indig

A Neu" York Lawyer's Divorce
A few days ago Lucius Bulkier. sixteen
years of age, appeared before Judge Stan
ley, of the County Conrt, on application
to have his name changed to that of
Francis Ward Redfield. The young man,
as stated, gave us his reason for wishing
to change his name that his father had
not contributed to his support, and that,
therefore, he desired to aasume the fami
ly name of his mother. Why the appli
cant had so bitter an antipathy towards
his father's name did not appear, and tit
seemed somewhat singular that he should
make such an application for so (seeming-
Iv) trivial a cause. "Thereon bangs a

She then sought her state room, and
soon her woman's curiousity urged her to
see what ;welcome present the tin box
contained for her dear mother. She tore
off the sealed covering, but instead of her
token of love wpich slie had been led to
look for, the box contained a summons
notifying her to defend a suit for divorce
within twenty days- Here she was on
board a ship, a hundred miles from home,
friendless, comfortless, with no possible
way to return. For the first time in her
life did she suspect that her husband did
not love her. She could not realize the
terrible sit nation.
She showed the paper to an acquain
tance, whose reply only added to the
poignancy of her grief. It was, alas ! too
true. Her husband, whom she loved,
loved another, wished to be legally free
from her, and had taken this underhand
ed and cowardly manlier of obtaining his
freedom. Before she could return to
New York he would have attained his
object. She sank under this overwhelm
ing blow, and was obliged to take her bed.
Her misfortune raised up for her quick
friends and ready sympathies. When
the vessel arrived at Aspinwall she strong
ly desired to return to New York, lint so
weak was she that her friends would not
allow it. She could not return within
the necessary time, her ticket was paid
through to ban Francisco ; so there was
no other alternative but for her to pro
ceed. She arrived in Sacramento, and
poured a tale of woe into her mother's
ear, by whose advice she returned to New
York in January, 1857.
She sought out her husband, who
kindly furnished her with a copy of the
decree of divorce. She pleaded with him
for permission to see her little Lucius,
their only child, but he refused it. She
remained three months, endeavoring to
see her child, but in vain. The unfeeling
wretch was unmoved by her importunities,
but he must quiet them, fur they were
likely to lead to unpleasant disclosures.
So, quite in keeping with his true charac
ter, he made two infamous propositions,
one of which was that if she would keep
secret his rascality, and would raise him
$5,000, he would give her the custody of

He then said that if she would raise him
$1,500 he would get from the clerk of
the court the original record of the di
vorce, and thus obliterate all record of its
existence. This likewise met with an in
dignant rejection.
She then came to California fur aid,
and again returning to New York, mov
ed the Court to set aside the decree, on
the ground of fradulent service of sum
mons. In his defence he made no denial
of the facts here set forth, except in two
unimportant points, one of which was
that be kissed heron her departing, and
the other was the first of 'the propositions
above mentioned. Tho Court readily
granted the prayer of the afflicted lady.
Bulkley, finding the locality of his
residence rather warm for comfort, mi
grated to this cost, and practiced law in
Virginia City during its palmy days. He
succeeded in winning one heavy mining j
suit, which be took fur a large contingent ,
fee, and which enables hint to peranibu
late Mungomery street in faultless attire
at the present day. Ilis "shingle," as au
attorney, is a prominent feature of otif of
our principal streets.
And this is the person who has been
disowned by his own son. It is needless
to state that his wife applied for and re
ceived a decree of divorce and custody of
the child soon after the reversion of the ,
first decree. She has since married again, !
and is living' happily in Santa Clara coun

An Allegory.
The old man was toilling through the
burden and heat of the day, in cultiva
ting his field with his own hands, and de
positing the promising seeds in the faith
ful lap of yielding earth. Suddenly there
stood before him, under the shade of a
huge linden, tree, a vision. The old man
was struck with amazement.
"I am Solomon," spoke the phantom,
in a friendly voice. "What.are you do
ing here, old man ?"
"If you are Solomon," replied the ven
erable .laborer, " how can you ask this?
In my youth yuu sent mo to the ant I
saw its occupation, and learned from that
insect to be industProns and to gather.
What. I then learued I have followed to

"You have only learned half your led

ant, and fearn to rest in the _winter of
your life,

said, " I will confide my plans to you, but

the motives that actuate me. In the

to bring about that much desired ex

they are compelled to undergo, we are
sadly in need of them as soldiers. We
cannot spare one man, whores the Uni

their own soldiers remainin our prisons
because she has no need of them. I have
a proposition to submit to you which, I
think, if we can carry out, will bring
about the desired . change." There was a ,
long ominous silence, which lat last was
compelled to break by asking. "Well, sir,
what is your proposition i . " Lie, eat quiet
for an instant, and then, before answering
me, arose and looked under the bed, into
I wardrobe, in the doorway and the passage,
i and then. said, "We will have to be care
-1 ful—, walla have ears." He then drew his
chair close to me, and intt whisper said,
"I'tis to kid-nap President Lincoln, and
carry him off to Richmond!"
I said. I confess that I stood aghast, at
the proposition, and looked upon it as a
j fool-hardy undertaking; tothink of suc
cessfully seizing Mr. Lincoln in the Cap
ital of the United States, surrounded by
I thousands of hie soldiers, and earn- hint
I off to Richmond, looked to me like a ,
foolish idea. I told him as numb. He
i went on to tell with what facility he could
be seized in various places in Washington.
I As, for example; in various rides to and
' from the Soldier's Home, his summer res-
I idence. He entered into the minute de
-1 tails of the proposed capture, and even
I the various parts to be performed by the
actors in the performance. I was umaz
i ell, thunderstruck, and in fact I might
lalso say frightened, nt the unparalled and
acity of this scheme. After twodays' re-
I flection I told him I was willing to try it.
I I believed it practicable at . that time,
I though I now regard it as a fholhardy un- ,
! dertaking. I hope you will not blame me
for going thus far. I . honestly thought
I an exchange of prisoners could be brought
I about could we have once obtained pus-1
session of Mr. Lincoln's person.
Such a thing us the` assassination of
Mr. Lincoln I never heard spoken of by

Upon one occasion; - I remember we had
called a meeting in Washington for the
1 purpose of discussing matters in general,
us we had understood that the Govern
ment had 'received inforMation that there
I was u plot of some kind on hand. They
had even commenced to build a stockade
and gates on the navy-yard bridge—gates
opening towards the Sotitlf;:as though
ithey expected danger from within, and
not from without. At this meeting I ex
, !deified the construetion of the gates, and
stated that I was confident the Govern
' ment had wind of our movement, and
' that the best thing we could do would be
to throw up the whole job. Every one
seemed to coincide in my opinion except
Booth, who sat, silent and abstracted.
Arising at last, and bringing down his
