The Eaton and Aurora Silver Lodes, the property of_

never failing motmtain stream, which empties into the
Bearer Head Elver, a tributary. or the Jefferson Fort of
the Missouri, in'Beaver Head County, in the'Tenitory of
Montana, and contain twelve hundred 6e - t. each
The width of the Eaton Lode is fire and one-ball and of
the Aurora three and one-half feet, - running to unknown
depths, and increasing in richness as they go down. These
two Mee are only Forty feet apart, and probably run-to-
getter at some distance from the surface

made in the ordinary form,,and is bulk, will show the km-

"We assume that the Lead ore will- yield 875 in Silver

moderate enough, since, according to our ways, the Gil

From the above mays, some Idea may be formed of
the Immense value of this property, and of the certainty of
a large yield. But even that idea will be merely approx
imative, without a due consideration of the following facto
The celebrated Cometock Si' car Lode, in Nevada, wor

et," "Ophir," "Crone Point," "Savage" and some other
companies, sold on the Bth of Apri1,.1865, at prices avers
ging ever Two Thousand Dollars per foot.
These mines yield an average Of about 865 to the too,
which includes first, second and third classes of ores.
Now, the average yield of the three classes of ore of the
Eaton and Aurora Lodes will certainly be more than 845
per ton ; Indeed, from the large number of assays thus far
made, not only here, but in the actual workinga of the
mine, It will probably reach $75 or FrzO per ton. The
9,100 feet • owned by the Compani .t ould, therefore, be

Fitly for the youthful bride.

I would only ask the clover,

Little cares my hardy flowers,
Though the soil be poor and dry:
Bloomiog by the dirty wayside,

Let me learn the gentle lesson, -_-
~E.ven in. ray lowly way,
Working bravely, like the clover.
In the sultry summer day.
There wore wild flowers in profusion, in boquet
and garland, scattered about the small but gentle
mansion of Widow Stoningtai. Mirrors and an
tique picture frames were wreathed with them;
Windows were garlanded, and even the very gob
lets—saving a sufficient number to accommodate
the excited guests—were made to serve the pur
pose of vase. The long table with its snowy cloth,
the Side board, and the parlor oruamental-piece,
bore a score of their fragrant ornaments, yet
queen above them all was the pure white boquet
syringas and white thorn blossoms that lay upon
the dressing table in one of the neatest little bou
doirs in New England.
Wttat a stir! what a tumult! what a running
here and there! what a pattering of slippered
feet up and down the stairs! what a flying of
nimble fingers among bits of ribbon and .tarleton
and illusion! And why not! Sweet Lucy, the
only surviving child of the widow, was that morn
ing to marry Capt. Edward - Burnett, wyoung and
handsome officer, who had already distinguished
himself in the Union service.
Lucy is not handsome but very pure and lovely
in her bridal Zress of pearl white gauzy texture,
looped •up here and there with boquets of the
fragrant syringa; while among her golden curls
peep out the white violet and moss rose-bud just
opening itii petals to the light.
- And Lucy looked dreamily happy - 'that morning,
yet astonishingly indifferent—so that the bride
maids protested—to her own personal appear
ance. She had not once raised hei
,eyes to the
mirror before which they were turning from one
side to the other as if she were but a moving wax
figure, placed there to show the advantage the
gauze and laces with which they were adorning her.
A light rap is heard at the door.
"This is Edward—let him come in," mid Lucy,
the lightest perceptible flush mounting her cheeks
at the well known sound.
"Oh! no; uo !" chimed half a dozen voices "not
till this loop of ribbon is fastened and the veil
properly adjusted." '
But Edward did come in, - though he paused
for a moment on the threshold to contemplate the
,loveliness of the group. The next instan the was
by Lucy's side, rumpling veil, tisanes, ribbon•, and
flowers in one confused mows as he caught her rri
his arms and pressed his lips to her ow burning
"Goodness me!" "Oh my!" "Did you ever!"
"The bear P' The Hottentot: to swallow her at a
mouthfal !" avid various other exclamations of dis
gust escaped the group of bridetnaids, who looked
with dismay on the havoc the sunburnt but still
handsome captain was making of the bridal finery
of their pet Lucy.
"I beg pardon, ladies, but I couldn't resist the
temptation." said Edward; "there Lucy, shake
yourself, and you'll be just as •new. Who shall
say the beauty of a bird is not enhanced by rill , -
fling its plumage ?"
Just at this moment Mrs. Stonington entered
to say that "the guests had all arrived and that
the minister was getting impatient."
"Not more so than myself," said Edward, re
signing his bnde electio her uncle, who was to
give her away.
While.the ceremony was being ~performed a
silent prayer goes up from the heart 'At . the widow
and tears drop thick and fast upon takfurrowed
cheeks, for her home will uow be desolate indeed;
and when at last the two are made one the moth
er presses her daughter to her bosom—now hers
no more forever—one, long moaning sob, which
she trice to repress, escapes her, and she feels that
the light has gone out from the hearthstone when
the carriage containing the newly married couple
rolled away from the door.
'A month had passed Captain Burnett's ab
sence having expired, he joinshis regiment taking
his young bride with him—much agamst his bet
ter judgment—to that desolate portion of Eastern
Virginia which was soon after the scene of a ter
rible battle:
But though the presented camplife and marches

And thus it was that the bravo captain yielded
to his young wife's entreaties.
The bride was for seine time charmed with the
novelty of camp-life, and while listening to the
stirring beat of the drum, as the different compau•.
ies went through their drilla, she almost wished
herself a " brave soldier boy." Na prouder, sight
had her eyes ever witnessed than that of her gal
lant husband as, at the bead of his brave band of
cavalry he set out for the battle field.
" And I am to, be left behind 1" she asked Its
Edward sprang from his saddle and entered the
tent to give her a parting kiss.
" Certainly dearest. What could we do with

"I timl s us it I could figlittoo, Edward. Pray
let ute accompany you."
" Not for the wide world can I consent. Some
ill would most assuredly befall you; and you

"But ma'am, the captain said—"
"No matte); what the captain stud, I must have

"I have no lady's saddle."
"No matter; a saddle of any kind will do:"
"But, madam—!"
Stamping her little foot.
"Look yonder!" And she pointed to the north
east. "A heavy rebel fostee is coming unexpect
edly, upon Our troops. With ei swift horse I can
reach my husband's column and give•the 'alarm
in that time to circumvent them. Now do my
bidding at once!"
Stanton in fear and wonder obeyed ; and when
be led truth the high ;nettled steed Lucy appeared
in a regular military suit of her husband's, with
her curls so nicely stowed away beneath the cloSe
fitting cap, that the man in waiting could scarcely
believe the boyish looking soldier before him was
no other thou the captain's wife.
"Shall I not accompany you madam ?" he ask
ed, as she sprang lightly into the saddle.
"I want no retainers, Stanton; Stay where you
are, and follow the captain% orders,"
Lucy did not wait for him to finish the sentence,
but putting spurs to her steed, took the route her
.husband had taken, and was after an hours' fa
tiguing ride in fail view of the battle. She paused
but a few moments and looked back. The enemy
were advancing rapidly. She looked before at
the contending armies. Shells shrieked past, and
the force of the artillery Caused the very ground
to tremble.beneath':her feet. Her steed curved
his proud neck and pawed the ground, impatient
to proceed. She gave him the rein, for she saw
-where the dense volume of smoke was slowly ris
ing, the form of Edward— At all events it was a
cavalry company, and she - dashed boldly forward.
Nearly deafened by the roar of artillery, and
stifled by the smoke, she still kept on, until hav

mounted by 'the stumbling of her horse.

her husband did not recognize it. He lett his
company in charge of -his first lieutenant, sought
Kilpatrick, and in a few minutes, with his own
company and 'reserve Corps, was soon galloping
off in the direction pointed out by his own brave
little wife,

she looked upon the wounded, the dead and dying

familiar to her. She removed, as well as she was
able, the weight that oppressed him, and asked if
he was hurt much.
The soldier, addressed turned his face toward
her with a groan; saying - , "I feel very faint. and
thirsty. In the name of Heaven give me a drink
of water, and I shall die-easy."
It was a terrible task that the captain's wife

I passed the winter of Byron's death in GreLcce;
and in the latt - r part of February went to'Mtisso•
longhi to see him. He was then suffering from
the effect of a fit of epilepsy, which occurred in
the middle of February. The first time I called
at his residence I was not permitted to see him;
but in a few days I received a polite note from
him at the hand of a negro servant, who was a
Oative of America, aa whom Byron was kind to,
and proud of, to the last.
I found the poet iv) a weak and irritable state,
but he treated me with the utmost kindness. He
said, that at the time I first called upon him, all
strangers aid most of his .friends were excluded
from his room. " But said he, had I known an
American was at the door, you should not have
been denied. I love your country; sirf it is the
only spot of God's green eFth nut desecrated by
In our conversation, I alluded to the sympathy
at the time telt in America for the struggle in
Greece. All he said at the time in reply was—
, " Poor Greece ! poor Greece! once the richest
on earth. God knows I have tried to help thee!"
He then referred in rapturun terms to Bona
ris, then just fidlen, and showed tue a letter from
the chief.
In.afew ;days after I had left hini, I received
another note from him, requestingAne to call and
bring with me Irving's Sketch Book. I took it
in my hand, and went once more to the illustrious
author's residence. He rose from his couch when
I entered, and pressing my hand warmly. quid—
" Have you not the Sketch Book!"
I handed it to him, when, seizing it with euthu
siasm.he turned to "The Broken Heart."
"That," said he, "is 0110 of the finest things
ever written on earth, and I want to hear an
American read it. But, stay, do you know Ir
ving ?"
I replied that I had never seen him.
" God bless him !" exclaimed Byron, " he is a
genius ; and ho has somethmg better than genius
—a heart I wish I could see him, hut I fear I
never shall. Well, read 'The Broken Heart'—
yes, 'The Broken Heart.' What a work!"
In closing the first paragraph, I said=
" Shall I contest it 7 I believe in broken hearts."
" Yelt," exclaimed Byron, " and so'do I, and so
does every one but philosophers and fools."
So I waited, whenever he interrupted me, until
he requested me to go dn, yet I eared more for
the commentary as it came fresh front Byron's
heart. While I was reading one of the most
touching portions of the mournful piece, I observ
ed that Byron wept. He turned his 'eyes upon
ins, and said—
"Xou see me weep, sir. Irving himself never
wrote that story without weeping, nor can I hear
it without tears. I have not wept. much in this
world, fof trouble never Woo tears to my ey e s ;
but I always have tears for The Broken heart.'"
When I read'thef hist line of Moore's verses, at
the close of the piece, Byron said:
'• What a being that Tom is, and Irving; and
Emmet, and his,beitutiful love ! What beings all

Mr. Lincoln told us this sto of Andy Johnson,
as he was familiarly iil the bit of calling him.
It was a few weeks rnior to the Baltimore Con
vention, before it waslknown hat Governor John
eon would be the nominee for the Vice. Preside
ncy. Said he--'I had a visit last night from Col
onel Moody, 'the fighting Methodist parson,' as
he is called in Tennessee. He is on his way to
the - Philadelphia Conference, and being in Wash

me,” he continued, "this story of Andy Johnson
and - General - Buell, which interested me intense

it was reported that Buell bad decided to evacu

were said fo be within two days' march of the
capital. Of course, the city was greatly excited.
Said Moody, 'I went in search of Johnson at the
edge of the evening, and found him at his office,
closeted with two gentlemen, who were walking
the floor with him, one on each side. As I enter
ed they retired, leaving me alone with Johnson;
who came up to me manifesting intense feeling,
and said: 'Moody, we are sold out! Buell is a
traitor! He is going to evacuate the city, and in
forty-eight hours we shall all be in the hands of
the Rebels.' Then he commenced pacing the
floor, gain, twisting his hands, and chafing like
a caged tiger, utterly insensible to his friend'sen
treaties to - become calm. Suddenly he turned
and said, 'Moody, can you pray V 'That is my
business, sir, as aMinister of the Gospel,' return
ed the Colonel. 'Well, Moody, I wish you would
'linty,' said Johnson, and instantly both went
doivn upon their knees at opposite sides of the
roods, As the prayer became fervent, Johnson
began to respond in true Methodist style. Pres
ently he crawled over on his bands and knees to
Moody's side, and put his arm over him, manifest
ing the deepest emotion. Closing the prayer with
a hearty 'Amen !' from each they arose. Johnson
took a long breath and said, with emphasis, 'Moo
dy. I feel better' Shortly afterwards he asked,
'Will you stand by me V Certainly, I will,' was
66 - answer. 'Well, Moody, I can depend upon
you ; you are one in a hundred thousand!' He
then commenced pacing the floor again. Sudden.
ly he wheeled, the current of his thought having
changed, and said, 'Oh, Moody! I don't want you
to think I have become a religious Man because" -
asked you to pray. lam sorry to say it, but" am
not, and hate never pretended to be religious.
No one knows this better than you; but, Moody,
there is one thing about it : I do believe in Al.
mighty God! And I believe also in the bible,
'and I say I'll be d—d if Nashville shall be surrcti
vdered !"
And Nashville was not surrendered.

a large iron tack which had been baked in it by

harder even than the tack in which it was imbed
"The tack in question is always packed in
square wooden boxes, generally bearing date as

which the following is told:

one of the ranches in the vicinity of that city. was
recently surprised to see a large flock of pigeons,

suddenly fall to the ground. 'Wondering at the
phenomena, be concluded to ,watch them. An
antiquated Thomas cat. perambulating the yard,
seized one of the young pigeons and made a hearty
meal of it. Soon after Thomas cat commenced
staggering about like one intoxicated, and falling
over, gave up the ghost with a dismal yowl. The
farmer's wife, who had picked up a number of pi

learning of poor grimalkin's fate thought the birds
were poisoned and threw them down. The far
mer gathered over two hundred of them and threw
them into an old out-house.. In the morning his
wife found the pigeons aliie and roosting on a
wood pile. Inquiries were made, and it was as
certained that a near neighbor, haring been liou
bled by frequent visits of pigeons had soaked some
grain in whisky and scattered it about his premi

fact, dead drunk. They recovered, however, but
poor puss became a victim of alcoholic stimulants,

DOMESTIC LIFE,—No man ever prospered in
the world without the consent and co-operation
of his wife. If she united in mutual endeavors or
rewards his labors with an endearing smile, with
what spirit and perseverance does he apply to his
vocation ; with what confidence will he resort
either to his merchandise or farm; fly over hind,
sail over seas, meet difficulty and encounter dan
ger—if he knows he is not spending his strength
in vain, but that his labors will be rewarded by
the sweets'of home! How delightful it is to have
one to cheer, and a companion to soothe the soll
itary hours of grief and pain ! Solitude and dis

would be, " Look out for a pious girl, distinguish

married state, will not fail, as a rule, to render

bundle, and gives us one stick, Which we are able
to carry today, and then another, which we are
able to carry to-morrow, and so on. This we
might easily manage, if we would only take the
burden appointed for us each day ; but we choose
to increase our trouble by carrying yesterday's
stick over again •, and adding to-morrow's
