It Is impossible to give any idea of the
agony and grief of Isidore : she seemed be

GETTYSBURG, TUESDAY, JUNE 21, 18.31.
Many weeks passed much in the same
manner, and Isidore grew more and more
weary ofsociety. Her only enjoyment was
walking crnund the estate, comtlorting the
sick, and playing with the children or the
tenants. One evening she was returning
from such an excursion, and'as the sun sVas
setting behind a rich curtain ofcrinison and
gold, she threw 'herself on a hank under the
wall of a summer house, covered with ho.
neysuckle and grape vines, to enjoy the
scene. She not been their long, when she

was much more composed, and appeared to
more advantage than. she had since her ar

should make a great sacrifice in leaving one
who was beloved beyond eXpression., but.the
thought gave . firmness to her step, and ex

The revedue of those states, taken together,
amounts to nearly three thousand eight

their banners Belgium, Rhenish Prussia,
Sweden, Italy, Greece, and nearly all the
German Confederation, (excepting Austria

amounts-to-4;600-s hips of war, and that of
