Could their presence and pity afford;
Whilst, with a end and terrible tone,

Though thousands of children cry!

An empty name and a paltry fame,

Whilst every glorious victory
Must raise the price of bread.

And thousands 'scattered abroad,
With never a home and never a shed:
Whilst kingdoms perish and fall,
And hundreds of thousands are lying dead,
And all—for nothing at all.

Ab ! what do we tight : SO for?,
Ah! why hate we battles at all!
'Tla justice must be done, they say,
The nation's honor to keep;
Alas that justice is so dear,
And human life so cheap.

From' my youth to the present time.
Misery, murder, and 'crime—
Crime, misery, murder and wo ;
Ah ! would I had known in my younger days

Ah! had I known in my happier days,
In my hours of boyish glee,
A tenth of the horrors and crimes of war—
A tithe of its m:sery

Of wife and children deer,
And I had died in my native lend,
Instead of dying here.
And raany a lOng, long day of wo.
And sleepless. nights untold,
And drenching rain, and drifting •now,
And liminess. famine and cold; -
And worn out and aching heart,

He sang the "song of the sword.'
A sunbeam stole t 'trough' the dark green
shadows of a trailing honey suckle,through
the full Hoiving folds of a loose whitecur
, tain.which shaded It cottage window, and
touched the face of a woman sitting with
in with a pale amber gleam. It was a
child-like face with its pure,pale complex
ion,•nd its oyes as blue as an ivy flower,
holding the amulet lik:e_n name shining
within them ; chestnut brown hair rip:
pled across slow broad forehead. and was
caught-abruptly and 'shaken out: of curl
into a knot behind the oar. It was a
mouth sentineled by dimples from too
near an approach—a soft crimson mouth,
upon which the man ' she loved might
meet the soul that loved him. She was
sitting beside a sewing machine, with •
finished little garment just drawn from
beneath the needle, leaning back with a
look or rest and satisfaction at its nom
pletion in her eyes.
It was afternoon—almost six--as the
hand of a little French clock pointed out
the boor, and she had 'a great deal to tell
him. What little wife has not? Grace
was asleep—Orace,lter little seven months
old baby—asleep;
. anil her little silver
belled rattle, her tooth ring and her sea
shells were all scattered about the carpet.
Her hair brush and one tiny slipper lay
just under the foltleof heir mother's edicts
dress—wood colored field with- a white
vine meandering across it. Marian stood
up and shook nut the little rose-colored
dreasjustlinished, folded it carefully and
laid it away; then up went. the easy calico
sleeves to the white polished elbow, and
the little woman -counted herself ready
for her kitchen--the one room lying be
yond this. She was the wife of a mechan
o—one of the happy poor men who ”earn
their bread by .the sweat of their brow,"
yet live the .life of the' soul on a level
above that of the body. i And this woman
was like many another woman throughout
• the length and breadth of the country.
She had been in refinement and compare
ease, and her heart was as sensitive
4 mimosa plant. Her mind was not
common, nor yet at that other extreme,
that of being intellectual. It was an
*ten . mind—a finely balanced one—a
"mind whose width and depth was wide

of the truest life. tiers vras a happy home

fallow, yet finely built, with a falr broad
breast and slender sinewy'arms that look
ed as if made for protecting just such a
thing as Marian all through the days of
her life. His hands did not look much
as if they had worn kid gloves, but they
were just such hands as a weary woman
would cling to for assistanCe and uphold
ing when trouble was near ,or a hope
failed her. Ile sat 'veri . . - oilit; with the

the side. Then he looked at the rattle
and took it up and shook it. It sounded
like a funeral bell. 'The slipper he
touched as rrverently"as %chilli puts its
hand out to touch the white face of its
dead mother. Marian came in smiling,
with a pink flub on her cheek ; she had
been making tea.
"Why, John ! You here ? . You came
in'so silently I never heard you. Tea is
ready for you."
She came close up to him as if to draw
him with her. He: took her band and
drew her to his knee ; be looked long
and gently into her iry blue eyes, and
then he asked her :
" DO you love rue, Marisa ?"
Playfully drawing his face against hers.
She kissed him for an answer.
She drew him closer and shuddered as
she embraced him.
"If there were no skeleton
John Elmer sighed and put her from
his knee, and rose up and followed her
into the kitchen. !Co silver graced theif
table, but the plain queensvrare dishes
were spotlessly clean—the table linen like
anew. A freshly gathered bognet stood
by John's plate,compossai of honeysuckles
and late rose& and a few leave* from
Marian's only house plant—a rose geran
ium. The fare was simple but savory.
Marian poured John's tea, and ,watched
him drink it feverishly, but be would not

asked she.

look. -
After the table was cleared and the
once more in order, Marian went

"! know you work too hard, dear. You
-mutt be careful of yourself. Some of
these times you will take nick and' die,
sod then what will become of poor lit tie
orace and me ? Oh ! John, it would kill
me to lose . you !" and a tear fell willfully
down against her cheek.
Her huibanti did • not answer, but be
felt truly that NMl's a tarsdor Newer need
ed tender and loving culture, or it would
be blighted. He . looked out of the win
dow—the landscape looked dreary ;
'• I am sure yolt do not feel well ; what
can I do for you ?"
John Eimer forced her anxious face
down, upon her batons, that he might not
see how sweet it was, then said :
"Marian, wife, I have unpleauint news
for you ; can you liaten to me now ? It
will affect tie materially."
Hid speech blinded her perception ;
she asked :
"Have your wage. been risdueed I I
know old Mr. Hugh is very stingy. Per

very saving, if the winter is not to .be
hard. I could get along almost anyhow

The strong man bowed his bead over
hers and groaned. The trial of their lirla
was upon them. Flow should he tell her
the awful truth. _

A tich stockholder remarked late at
dinner that day, having paid six bun
dred,for his two sons, "That Copperhead
Inser went today—oould not raise the
'spondulicks.' Good enough for him—be
might have volunteered long ago."
Sunh sympathy had Marian.
Weeks end months passed on. It was
dreary With Marian ; oh, so lonely. She
had nothing but Grace now. She heard
from John but seldom. it was very sel
dom he sent her money, for the wages of
a drafted man are not wonderful; and it
wultird to make the two ends meet. The
winter was scisme on, and every thing wan
goitig up. Her house rent bad fallen due,
and she was in need of wood. Strange
what changes were wrought in so short a
time. From modest ease Marian was com
to want-it Might be t suffering aid
starvation--she could not tell. She left
her baby and went out to unt work. She
had her sewing machine, and she could
sew. She had not counted the difficulties.
Her hbaband was a drafted man—a "but
ternut":—they had nothing for her to do.
They gave their work 'to the families of
Lincoln - volunteers. Marian looked in 1
their- faces, and wondered what they
meant. Was her husband's belief a re
preach ? Was it a disgrace to be drafted ?
if so, it fell upon him. Sbe was proud—
this little woman., But when ,she went
back, and found Grace crying fer her, and
the room cold, her pride began to give
way r to despair. One day she received a
letter. She read it tearlessly, but it was
the wedge that, driven sharply in, divided
the already broken leant. It was from-a
companion of John's. telling how belied
been unable to stand the rough usages of
war; how he had fallen ill, and after liv
ing a long time in the hospital, had died.
He should have written her before, but
hail been separate I from Jobn on de
tached service during his sickness. Then
it spoke of his gallantry, his close observ
ance of his assumed duties, etc. But what
mattered all this to Marian? He INIII3
dead—he was gone—she could never,
never see his face again. She would never
be held iu his arias—never feel the pres
sure of his kiss. He was dead, and Grace
was fatherless. But Marion's grief was
silent. She rose up and took her burden,
and thought she would live for the sake
of the little one. But it was hard work to
live., She got some little work ?tido, but
she could only rent one room now, and'
barely keep them in food. Sometimes
they had no fire for an'entire day. Even
Marian's health suffered, and the child
took l severe cold, that ended in the
croup, and terminated its little life. Ma
rian 'thought , she bad suffered her 'hill'
measure of loss ; but when this last and
only treasure was taken away, the last tie
that bound her to this life was broken.
What was the country-to her 1 In all ita
Length and breadth, she bad none to love
her—no spot in- its boundariea she could.
call her own-. What-was it to her that the
country should be saved ? She was dying
of grief and starvation. . '.
Work became spares and herd to, get.
Someone was always before her. One by
...e au......i.i all tier little articles of value
=disposed of all those little things which
had made her room so pleasant when she
and John and baby were all se happy to
gether. Then, when there was nothing
left,--she sank down to it slow, nervous
fever. After it was generally known that
Mrs. ',Elmer was destitute and sick, a few
neighbor; began to drop in to try and do
something for the unhappy Woman ; but
tardy conscience had failed tei remind'
them of their duty until it was too late to
aid her. She died—this broken-hearted'
wife of the conscript, with John's name
and that of the baby on her lips. She said;
she was going to meet them in a country
"'Where all was peace. And yet what mat
ters it ? ' I are just such heart-achee
'and heart-breaks all-over the land. It is
not one woman alone who goes down to
the grave broken hearted—not merely
one orphan that suffers hunger and cold.

Scartroarton.—The intrinsic difficulties
in the wny of subjugating the Southern
people appear .in our very successes.—
Sherman has spent nearly a year, at an
enormous sacrifice of men and mousy, in
marching through Georgia. He Huila
hiinself at hitt in the possession of but a
single town. All the rest of the State is
as free an it will ever be if the indepen
dence of the Confederacy is established.
We have carried on the war four years,
yet, Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Missis:
sippi,• Louisiana, 'Faxes, Arkansas and
North Carolina are almost entirely inde
pendent of the Washington Government.
Sherman may tutrch hit army through
South Carolina—be may even take and
bold Charleston; but. how utterly impos-.
Bible it will be to interfere materially with
the operation of the local laws in the
smallest conceivable fraction of the_iin
tnecte territory whicti mutt be occupied
before thi; work of subjugation will have
been tisgun.
