It was in, the year 1863, while I was a
refugee, that I met Dr. Hildreth. He was
a surgeon - on post duty,. and 1 , 143 it was win

I was a girl then, veii . young in,the
world. The sight of a giraruniforin made,
my hearf go jut-a-pat, and nearly tunimy
brain. I did. not then doubt but evert
uniform covered a being .us brave ana
•dauntless as Richard Coeur de'Llen.
It is a very difficult matter 36. define'
the thoughts and feelings of a young girl
just stepping forth into the world. bhe
is innocent, for parents take care that
' their daughters are guariledfioni all knowl
edge of vice. To a youngirl, men are
emblems of nobility, cotuageand strength;
they are superior beings, who possesses all
of woman's tenderness,' and none of her
weakneis. I have.tried to defiziethegirr p s
' ideal of man; at least some such silly ideas
once filled my head ,when` I first met Dr. '
Hildreth: • •-• '
A s merry party were chatting at the
town hall where five met to; dance. I was,
almost a stranger, and' my escort had gone'
to bring me a
.gliisso,,tater, when my
schoolmate; LettiaDa.y, :ikipLed across
the ,room in adVance of a ban ome sur
o.eon, and kissed me: -
• •‘Oh, Maggie, how,glad I am to see you!
,I heard that you were here, but I - could
not believe it. How shOcking in those
horrid Yankees to burn yopr house! Nev
er mind, dear,. a good time's coming—do
come to see me"—in a whisper—"l've
something sweet to tell you."
The young surgeon stood by her side.
I knew that, he heard her whisper, for a
merry beara_dinced in his eyes,
and he
bit his lips to hide a smile as Lottie, ex
claimed, "Oh !" and hid tier fade, Child-fash
ion, in her lacelandkeichief.
"Miss Lottie, I must remind you that
I have not been-introduced to your dear
. friend, Mks Gentry," he said, gazing in
to my eyes. Then followed the formal
introduction.which made•me' acquainted
with Dr. liildreth,
"Was hu handiome?" Theta' should
have said yes; for •' flooked through - the
magic eyes of sweet seventeen.. Now, as I
recall him hawas straight and Well pro

Keeper's Journal.,
the old "red cent" has now passed otit - Of
use, and, expect rarely, out of. sight, like
the "old oaken . bucket," its history is a,
matter of sufficient interest for preserva
tion. The cent was first proposed by Rob
ert Morris; the great financer of the reto
lotion, and .was named by. Jefferson, two
hours after. It began to make its appear
ance from the mint in 1792. it bore the
head of Washington on One side and: 13
linka on the other. The 'French - revolu
tion soon created a rage for' French ideas
in America, which putnn the Cent, instead
of the head .of Washington the head of
the Goddess, of Liberty, a F rench liberty,
with back thrust forward and flowinglocks.
The chain on the reverse Was replaced by.
the olfie wreath of peace. But the French
liberty was short lived, and so was her
portrait on our cent. The next head -or
figure sticceeding. this, the staid . classic
dame,- with a fillet around her hair, came
into. fashion about 30 or '4O Years ago, and
her finely chiseled Grecian features haire
been but slightly changed in the lapse of
