_." THE YOUNG DRAGOON.
A Story of the Cowpens.
srCIIATtLES J. PETERSON.

71te Spec Lady.
Tho period of our revolutionary history
immediately succeeding the defeat at Cam
den, is still remembered in the Carolinas
with horror. The British, elated with their
success, and regarding the South as now
their own, proceeded in the work of con
fiscation and massacre with pittiless 'sever
ity. In that terrible crisis many Ia family
was deprived of its head either by exile or,
by execution. Yet larger numbers were
shorn of their property and reduced to
comparative indigence. In a word, ter
ror reigned paramount.
But the common events of llfe still went
on. Tho transactions of business, the
struggle for wealth, the toils of the hus
bandman, births, deaths, marriages, cares,
hopes, fears—all followed each other down
the deep current of existence, almost whol
ly unaffected by the storm of war which
agitated the surface. It is an error to sup
pose that great convulsions disturb the
whole order of society. Men will still
hate, though the entire nation be turned in
to a camp ; will still strive for the dross of
earth; will still, if young and generous,
risk their heart's happiness in love.
It was toward the close of a winter eve
ning that a youth of noble mien and hand.
'Line face stood at the foot of one of those
avenues of trees, which, in South Car
:l:na, lead up from the road to the man
- ens of the wealthier proprietors. For
nearly half an hour he had been there, as
if awaiting the approach of some ono from
the house; now looking up the long ave
nue, now restlessly walking to and fro.—
During' that interval but one person had
passed along tho highway, and the notice
of this one, the youth skillfully avoid
ed by concealing hirriself behind some
dwarf trees within the plantation fence.—
This act, as well as his whole demeanor,
proved that ho was awaiting" some secret
At last, just when. the dusk began to
deepen into night, the flutter of a white
dress was seen coming down the avenue.
A minute more, and a beautiful girl of 18
summers appeared r on the scene.
" Albert, said the new corner, as_the
youth, seizing her hand, passionately kiss-1
ed it, have not a second to stay. It was
with difficulty I could leave the house un
seen, and my absence has doubtless been
noticed before this; what we have to say,
therefore, musk be said at once; why have
you sought this interview?'
" I have sought it, Ellen," he 'replied,
still holding her hand,- "because, despair
ing of gaining your consent, I have volun
teered in Capt. Washington's cavalry corps,
and to-morrow set forth. Perhaps you will
never see me more. I could not leave the
neighborhood without seeing youonce more
and bidding you an eternal farewell ; and,
as your father's orders had banished me
from the house, there was no method of
giving you my adieu except by soliciting

less kind; and I, fear that I have lost your
heart—that you, too, have ceased to care
for me, now that I am beggared—"
His hearer suddenly turned her face full
upon him, with a look of tearful reproach
that cut short his words.
"Bless you, Ellen, for that look," he
said. "Though my father's estate is con
filcated, and ho and I both indigent, it is
not on that account that you have seemed
so cold to me lately. Say then, dearest,
only say that I have been mistaken in
thinking you atoll altered."
Another look, equally eloquent, answer

kid, in anticipation, that all violence would
be disapproved both by the government
and the municipality. The "Commission
of Barricades" also issued a parting word

I said, "the cities of Italy have been born
-1 barded by the stranger and their sovereign.
Rome has been conquered. The French
republic wished to plunge into the heart of
Rome a dagger, while the Austrians and
1 the Bourbons tortured its other members."
i The Roman Monitor also in the last num
ber that was permitted to appear, exhorted
t the people to trust in the future, and for
the present to abstain from till violence.—
"Let there be no insult," it was urged.—
"From the mouth of a conqueror it is vile,
from that of the conquered it is foolish.—
People of Rome, to-morrow the liberty of • .
speech will no longer be tolerated. But
let us wait in patience."
Not a single instance has been narrated
to show anything but the most entire har
mony on the part of all classes of the peo
ple. Indeed, looking at the number inter
ested in the old state of things that must
always be found in every city which has
undergone a great political change, it is re
markable that so long a time has elapsed
without Oudinot being able to get up acs
handsome demonstration. One method,
by which he attempted to create an im
that the'hostility of the citizens
was beginning to abate, had the usual ha
miliating end. He'announced in a procla

a protest appeared from the municipality,
denying that they had taken any part in
the( measures published by Oudinot, ar.L.
announcing that they merely remained a•

behalf, until more fortunate times shot,:

The existing Roman army has been i.
corporated by General Oudinot with the
French army, but he is remorseless against,
Garibaldi, and the Lombards, Piedmon
tese, &c. who have beeri fighting side by
side in the Roman cause. No terms could
be obtained for them, and they have been
obliged to leave the city. Garibaldi has

1 wing fallen upon the rear of his division
and captured his baggage, but . this, is at
present merely a report. Mazzini is still
in the city, under the protection of a Brit
ish passport, but I presume the last order
of Oudinot, that all persons who are re
quired to leave should do so in 24 hours,
will necessitate his departure.
Immediately after his subjugation of the
city Oudinot performed the appropriate act
of sending its keys to the Pope... The Pope
sent one of his usual replies about the de
votion of France, the horrors of anarchy,
his constant prayer for the enlightenment
of the wicked, &c., but nothing more, ex
cept that he referred Oudinot to the allocu
tion recently issued from Gaeta. It is said
that Pio Nono will certainly refuse going
to Rome on any condition shortt of abso
lute sway, and that the-Austrians and-Ne
apolitans are intriguing to get him to Bo
logna, there to assume his power under
their protection. In all these matters, al

The accounts from Hungary come all
from the side of the Austrians, the corn

cepted. It seems certain, however, that
the Austrians were the victors in the re-,
cent battle of Comorn. The deSpatch.of
General liaynau, published officially at
Vienna, claims the victory as great and
decisive. The Hungarians on 'their side
deny that any victory was gained.by the
Austrians, but do not claim it for them
selves. Kossuth has publicly censured
General Georgey for not having' attacked •
