that " dwelleth upon many waters" has been
brought only too surely. The awful prophe

its nakedness, in all its dreariness, ii;ilS around
us. After riding some two hours we arrived
;at the foot of the great mound that we had
..-peen in the morning. .We dismounted and
even scrambled to the top, for we had even
- arrived at the ruins of Babylon ; and this
great mound of earth that we were on was
the grave of the golden city.
I believe from the summit, raised- BQUIC
' '.kundred feet above the plain, the walls of
-the ancient city may be traced. ' But a hot
' wind driving burning sand, end' the impal
pable dust of ages into the pores of our skins,

.'But so 'completely have the prophecies been

'to The once mighty city, that even the great
:which we were stAnding only by

Then followed a brief allusion to his policy
in.a.rresting Valltindighatn, of striking at the
leaders, and a curious story of that Copper
head's:arz•est. It was threatened that he
would. be rescuedrso he was ptit in the room
immediately above General Burnside's, in the
hotel, two floorshigher, a`-company Of regulars
qUartered in..thehotel, and a corporal and
seven men in-theroona opposite Vallandig
ham's, haying express orders to do anything
to prevent tile prisoner from leaving that room.
A serenade to Vallandighani was proposed,
but given up when General Burnsideadvised
the proposers that thii - rignhir corporal didn,t
know anything in the world except to obey
orders, and that there was dano . er that he
might think a rescue was intended. and that
Vallandigham might unhappily Meet with
some accident. .
