is now well established that the late raid
upon the Baltimore and Ohio railroad was

Gilmore the leader, is a man of good

MrPeter Robinsoc was a bachelor, stont ' g(one fa,". opon the n(,aj.0f lwo gentlemen
rosy, and almost fcrty. Peter ha4 never pag8in? an( the whole four were in an "in
loved but once, and the adoration of his , B(aU mjxe(j m an inextricable mass. - Like
heart had been bestowed upon MN Lucy , al, other (,peclaior(i) Peter rushed to the res
Poppelton ; but, ahs ! Peter had failed to cue only to behold, between sorrow and
express his passion at the proper moment, joy the ja6, ?a!1p9 Df Counsellor Ketcham
or, in otner words, had not come to timo ; ) an j lhe genileman who was walking, with
and one day bis heart was lacerated by re- ( him anJ ,he perfect safely of the Milesian
ceiving an envelope 01 cams announcing
that ihe delightful Lucy was about to be-
come Mrs. Jemmerson Crooks.
It was a' terrible blow lo Peter, but he
staggered bp from it, and still loved the' ob
ject of his early passion at a' distance.
Mrs. Jemmerson Crooks revelled in the de
lights of motrimony, leading Fashion, her
husband, and Peter at a distance by the
noe, for five years, at the etd of which
time Mr. Jemmerson Crooks chose lo de
part for another sphere, leaving Mrs. Jem
merson alone to mourn hi departure.
Once more Peter's heart sprang up from
duM and ashes, and looked forward to the
time when the allotted periol of mourniig
ahould be over, and he-could pot forth "the
pent up agonies of five years; and ask com
pensation in the hand of the fair widow.
"One year," thought Petir, "is aurely
enotuh time. I will give her one
Month after month roiled away nntil the
tenth cime, and Peter was determined to
wai; no longer. .A sick'jsh misgiving of the
evils of delay drove him to precipitate the
asking. He sought the widow in her home,
and with all the ardor of a pent up love
ponred forth hia tale. The widow heard
him heard him calmly unto, ihe very last
word, and then with her delicately per
fumed handkerchief pressed to her blush
ing cheeks by the whituM of hand, told
Peter that he was, alas ! just one week to
late; that she had only the . week before
promised her hand to Dr. Stickleback, who
had so faithfully attended her dear Jemmer
son in his last hour ; and oh, why did her
dear Peter not speak before? "A
"'A second time was Peter' heart torn into
rrtinute fragments ; a second lime was he
sent out into ibe world to admire at a dis
tance. ! ' ' '
Time sped on. aid once more P.ter ( be
gan lo encourage hope. Perhaps Stickle
back might die ; be certainly had an apo
plectic look and, sure enough, Peter's
"perhaps" turned out a certainty, '" and Dr.
Theodosins Stickleback was within a short
p-riod of two years gathered to hi fathers,
and the fair widow Stickleback was once
more a mourner." Tester had. learned loo
bitterly the danger of delay tV sufler any
snch cause this time between himself and
success. He would not give the widow a nor let tan months nav. r.ot even
mx. but even at the third month he would
go to her with his tale of love deferred ; and
so he did We mui transcribe the widow's
own words when the question was pop-
Ped": ' ' '. ' ' :
i 'Oh! Mr. Robinson, who did yoa no
come before 1 Yoa know my esteem for
you you know that 1 -ronld hare set aside .
all other offers for you ; but oh ! how can I
tell you, that only last evening I promised
Captain Hawkins ! Toor, dear sweet Haw- ;
kins ! he's your intimate Iriend, I knew;
I've heard him speak so-highly of you ! Oh ! ,
why did you not speak before V j
And so Mrs." Theodosius Stickleback waa j
transformed into Mrs Capt. Jonathan Haw-
kins : and Peter was once more left to ad- I
mire ai a distance.
Still Peter waited aud hoped. Something
might turn up, he argued and then he would
not allow himsslf to be to late. And some- ;
thing did lurn op the something being
nothing more or less than the redoubtable'
captain, who turned up missing, having'
fallen overboard Irom the steamboat while
out on a target excursion with his company
and sunk like a, owing undoubtedly, ;
to the ponderous nature of his responsibili
ties. ' ; !'.,.',' I
The suddenness of this exit, as Peter ar i
gued, must certainly act with depressing i
effect upon ihe widow, and he thought he i
would not give her time again to recover'
and be admired ; stiil etiquette demanded
lhat a little do intervene. Accordingly!
when the tenth day after the melancholy'
bereavement, Peter knocked althe widow's '
door, bent, upon his errand to love, he rather
chuckled to himself that he was taking'
time by the forelock. The business on
u : w u i I
nuiiu no lame aijuioM iuiu,. ouu uuvs
more ihe widow was in a torrent of tears.
"Oh! Mr. Robinson," she exclaimed,
hiding her blushing face in her cambric,
.'why are yoa so unfortunate, and why ami
I ?- Yoa know my esteem for yoa but
yoa are too late ! Yoa know Counsellor
Ketcham ? my poor, dear, dead and gone
Hawkins' most intimate friend. - He was
with him yoa know, when he was called
away, and was the first to communicate to
me the awful intelligence. He was such a
comforter, and I have 'promised: to have
him this day two months!"
This lime Peter .j was crushed. He bad
no words to express his broken-hearted ness
but to rush from the house and
go on, as
before, admiring at a distance. . , .. , .
, It was months before Peter even offered
to encourage hope, and even then it flick
ered. Ooe day be was walking ia despon
dent mood through one of the ave
nues, when he heard a sadden stout, and
started.; From a half finished balding just
In front of him he saw, as he 'raised .his
eyes, a stout Milesian making gyrations in

of lime. Without an instant's delay more
than fo satisfy himself that life was extinct,
he hailed a passing hack and then sped 10
the mansion of the widowed Mrs. Counsel
lor Ketcham. In words -of the most deli
cate and endearing nature, Peter communi
cated his intelligence to the widow, and
waited the result ; and then, belwren her
sobs and tears, he claimed her tiand for the
nqxt set.
t;Oh ! Mr. Robinson,". sobbed the widow;
"how can you afk me snrh a thing ? How
could i know that yon would be the firt to
bring me the awful news of my dear Ketch
am' decease ? You know Low I estepm
and respect you, but but I am already
er.gaeed !"
Engaged !" shrieked Peter, "to who ?"
"I promised," lespondd the widow, be
tween her sobs' ''I premised a month ago,
if anything happened. 1 would marry Ciil.
Snapper '." "
"You did V shouted Peter, the whole as
pectof his face changing in an instant from
that of a fiend to a look of unbridled jry I
"You did, and who are you engaged to af- :
ter ihai ?'
"No one," sighed the widow.
"Will yon swear this to me 1" said Peter. .
C'l o Ir a j r
"And will you marry me afier Suapper is
gone?" . . i I
I will," said the widow. ' j
"Do you swear it ?"a-ked Peter, fiercely. '
"I swear it," said the widow earnestly.
"Then you are mine, charming Lucy !
for the stone that ushered the Counsellor
into the next world also took the Colonel

. The next moment ihe idow was in Pe
ter's arms, and they , were married in less
than a month.
Much attention has been lately awakened
in Rome by a portrait of onr Savior which
is fully described as authentic. It is copied
Irom a cameo, which bears the following
inscription: .'Executed by order of the
Empeior Tiberius, and given by the Sultan
of Turkey to Pope Innocent VIII , in ran
som of his brother Zozim,then a captive in
tne hands of ihChristians." The portrait
has bee" coPied b M
Van Clet, a sculp
tor of Paris, and from its presumed genu
ine likeness, and the circumstances estab
lishing the authenticity of the cameo, has
created great interest in the religious and
artistic world.

The First. Enrepean Iron-Clad unuer Fire, i "
.. . . . 1
Since ihe French armor-plated batteries
took part in the lombatdment of .Kinburn, i
no opportunity has offered to br'mg'any of
the European iron clads to trial by battle.- - j
But the floating batteries used at' Kinburn I
woniu scarcely re raniteu among iron ciau
6hips now ; and the first real trial of an ar
mored ship in Europe took place daring an
engagement between the Danish cupola
ship Roll Krake and the Prussian land bat-
leries at Egernsnnd, on the 17th of Febru-j
ary. The Rolf Krake was built at Glasgow J
in Scotland ; she is covered with four and a I
half inch Iron plates, is ef twelve hundred j
ions burthen, draws sixteen feet of water, j
and has two terreis or cupolas, carrying four j
sixty-eight pounder guns. Apertures at the J
top of the towers admit light and air ; me
chanical arrangements allow of the bhip
being lowered until her deck is only a few
inches above the surface. An officer who
was on board during the action writes : '
"We passed Holnaes without replying to
the fire of ihe battery stationed there, and
took up the position which had been desig
nated. Here we anchored," with our broad
side towards two fixed batteries aud one
moveable field battery, which opened upon
us a murderous fire with round shot, coni
cal thell and shrapnel. A tongue of laud
prevented -our seeing the bridge we had
been ordered to destroy. The enemy fired
very well. His fixed batteries were mask
ed, atid it is therefore impossible to say
ilow moclietlamage we did him ; bet I sent
a col1'ple of shells at a rifled gun that rained
conical shot upon us Irom the heights,' and
when 6heering ofT bombarded a mill and a
bouse. We returned to Sonderborg, afier
being engaged an honr and a half. ' The
Roll Krake stood the trial well
"She was hailed sixty six times,' each
phot being ol itself sufficientto sink a wood-
en ship. The towers were hit several
limes ; sixteen shots went through the fun-
nel, one ihrongh the steam pipe, two thro'
the foremast. - one tbroogh the mainmast
two throngh the mizen, and from sixty to
seventy through the bulwarks, small boats,
sairs and rigging- The deck is torn up in
many places, the tackle much cut, ihe three
boat riddled ; every vulnerable point was
hit, and I thould like to have seen any part
of the deck where a man could have been
stationed without certainty of death. We
calculate that abcut five thousand pounds
of iron weie expended upon us, and you
may suppose that we contributed our share.
"The noise was deafening, produced as
much by our own fire as the missiles of ihe
enemy, whose shells flew about in all di
rections. One, which burst d rectly over
the lower in which I . was stationed, sent in
a rhower of pieces, which set fire jo two
mattresses, damaged my frontispiece, graz
ed my leg, smashed ray felescope and pen

es'ing facts relatit e to the battle-field : All
the bodies ol our Union soldiers have been
disinterred, and carefully buried in their ap
propriate places in the new National Cem
etery. The lotal number thus removed and
interred is three thousand five hundred and
twelve. About one thousand of litem are
unknown, and one-fourth of ihe whole
number belong to New York. Quite an
amount of money was found on them, both
in coin and paper, in sums ranging from
the fraction of a dollar up to fifty dollars.
