confused flight by the clia:rge, leaving some
dead and wounded on the field, and a num
ber of prisoners in our hands.
When the (barg e was made, Sergeant Ed•
wards was among trie,foremost to dash in
the enemy's midst, closely followed by tour
of his companions. In a women•, however,
the Sergeant, without being aware of it, was
separated from the rest, they taking another
direction. The rebels were endeavoring by
a free use of the spur, to reach the mouth
of a certain lane, before they should be in
tercepted by another p•trty of ours, who
were coming from another quarter to cut
Edwards fired oil' his gun, and .'without
knowing that he was alone, galloped up to a
Texan Ranger who, with the rest, was in
full retreat, and seizing hold of him, indea
wired, by main s rength, to drag him from
his ,saddle. The rebel, who had a revolving
rifle, turned fiercely around to shoot his as
sailant, but Edwards caught his gun, and
after a desperate struggle, both going at full
gallop, succeeded in wresting it from him.
It was then Edwards' turn to endeavor to
shoot the Ranger; he 1, levated the piece and
snapped it, but from some injury the rifle
had received, the hummer would nut fairly
strike the caps, and the gun could not be
discharged. All this time Edwards bad for

drawn his revolver. He fired it at his oppo

Not another one of the retreating rebels at
tempted to molest him for some., time. .As
he galloped by each one, he called upon him
to surrender, still supposing that he was
closely followed by his four companions, and
a little further back ' by his entire party.—
The frightened rebels seemed to be under
the same impression, and those that Edwards
called upon immediately halted, waiting for
whoever were to take them in charge to
come up. This gave them time to look
about and to perceive that none of our sol
diers were following. Some of them then
climbed the fences and "skedaddled" in dif
ferent directions, while the rest, gnashing
their teeth with vexation and rage, dashed

they did not exactly know which was Edwards,
and called back to the Ranger to say which

Ito found quite a number of officers who each
had a copy of this infamous speech, which they
were in the habit of quoting to confuse and
confound our poor soldier boys who foil into
their hands. The prayer of the patriot, as be
grasped his rifle and kneels in the mud, the
snow, or the blood of his murdered comrades,
is : "Palsied he the tongue that uttered that
accursed harangue Anathema upon the
head of the wretch who dares put cunning
falsehoods in the mouths of our country's en
emies, that they may cast them in the teeth of
the poor soldier, who has given up all— home,
comfort, friends—that he may fight in that
country's behalf !"
One of the facts with which the rebels re
galed our sergeant was, that our army be
fore Vicksburg had been repulsed, with the
loss of forty thousand men.
They robbed him of everything—overcoat,
blankets, and even a lead pencil which he
carried in his pocket.
Their living was rather scant. Each man
drew, for a day's rations, half a pound of rus
ty bacon and a little corn meal. They did
not depend altogether upon this supply, how
ever, but regaled themselves . with chickens,
, stolin froth the country people.
The sentiments of the rebel soldiers with
regard to the war were very changeable.—
Sometimes they declared they would all tight
to the death; and in a few minutes afterward
they would utter the most I it to curses against
the war and all who were instrumental in
bringing it about. When expressing such
sentiments as the last, however, they were ve

corporal and 'a few men were detached from
the principal party, in order to take Edwards
and four conscripts, who had boon found con

house of a widow Beckwith, and partook of a
comfortable supper at her expense. The
night was rainy and dark, and he detertnitted,if
possible, to ellect his escape Making a pre . -

into the house; and while the eye of-there
assured corporal was momentarily taken off
him, he made a leap from the porch into the
darkness, and ran with all speed toward the
bottom of the yard. The astonished corporal
hastily fired his gun, but the ball probably

until he became certain that hewas not pur

the Sergeant's story. How he wandered about
for nrarly a week, traveling mostly b) night
and concealing himself by day; bow he sev

Four Loyal Women Trouble A But
At. Brewersville, Jennings county, Indiana,
some days ago, a Butternut meeting, called to
denounce the Abolitionists, had an experience
which was not promised in the bills. A cor
respondent of the Cincinnati Gazette thus
narrates the incident :
.• While the meeting, composed of some fifty
persons, was •in session, four young ladies of
the place, who were passing to the post-office
for wail matter, had their attention attracted
by the coarse appearance and rudeness of the
conservative gentlemen present, and as each
of these women have brothers who have borne
the burden and heat of the day in their coun
try's service, they thought it would not be
impairing their own dignity to chase theth
from the house and take possession of it them
" To think, with them, was to act, and they
immediately repaired to a place where the old
'stars and stripes' were deposited, and born
that emblem of liberty aloft on the breeze
Moving forward in file they arrived at the
schoolhouse, the 'conservatives' giving way at
their approach; they entered, bearing with
them that banner which has so often been
baptized in blood, even the blood of their own
"At this unlookbd for not or the part of
the women, the convention were ,filled with
indignation, and after a little consultation
and some audible tnutterings, ono of "Jeff's"
champions charged the flag with a butternut,
which ho succeeded in 'pinning to it. The
ladies coolly held their fire until said hero
was through and asked, 'who will dare re•
move that butternut;' when they advanced,
and one of them pulled it off and threw it into
his face, at which he gave way crestfallen.—
At this juncture one of the sires suggested
that they could not transact business there
(that. is, so near the. offensilio banner) they
had better repair to Nature's own ietnple;
they ncaordingly . retired to the hillside north
of the towp, not however, until there had
been a sharp skirmish between the ladies and

What is contentment? The philosophy of

What is happiness ? A butterfly, that
roves from flower to flower in the vast of ex,

What is ambition ? A fierce and uncon

IVhat is crime ? A wretched vagabond,
traveling from place to place in a fruitless
endeavor to escape from justice who is con
stantly engaged in hot pursuit. A foe to vir

made to suffer for the guilty._

A marevitliotit a mind of his own is the
most helpless and shiftless of social beings.
His brain is a mere receptacle fir shreds
and patches of opinion picked up in the
streets, and the Caine infirmity , which leads
him to look to everybody save himself for
geida-oce, renders him-i•ncapafite of - selecting
from the multitarious counsel he receives
that which is best adopted to his exigencies.
Nay, in his weak bewilderment, lie tails to
make any sylection at all, and while he wav
ers and hesitates the golden opportunity for
decisive action slips by, and leaves him floun
dering in a ",,ea of trouble" from which one
manly stride in almost any direction would
have extricated him.
But let the weak of purpose take heart.—
This untOrtunate propensity to vacillate may
be overcome. Habits of self-dependence
may be acquired. Cowards by nature have
reasoned themselves, ere now, into a philo
sophic indifference to danger; and even the
c h am el eo n man, whose mind has in a mea
sure lost its iudentity, and is accustomed to
take, for the time being, the hue of every
mind with which it comes in contact, may
learn to resolve and execute on his own re
sponsibility. It must not be supposed that
we would dissuade any one from following it
in preference to his own impulses. The very
fact oh a man seeking counsel in the right
quarter and promptly adopting it, is prima
fgeic evidence that he - has a mind of kis
own., that his judgment is sound, that his
reason is scrotig,er than his vanity. It is not
with those Who brace themselves against a
rock in time of eilliculty that wo would-re
monstrate, but with the leaners on reeds,
the catchers at straws, the chnrtless, point
no-point voyagers of the ocean of life, who
are puffed hither and thither by every idle
breeze. Of all impediments to success, in
stability is the most fatal. It is even better
to be a sententious ass like "Runsby" than
a " Walter the Doubter."
Every young man, on entering the busi
ness world, should form for himself, or adopt

How to Procure a Husband
The following true story might, perhaps,
furnish matter for a little comedy, if com
edies were still written in England. It is
generally the case that the more beautiful
and the richer a young female is, the more
difficult are both her parents and herself in
the choice of a husband, and the more of
fers they refuse. The one is too tall, the
other too short, this not wealthy, that not
respectable enough. Meanwhile one sprig

Miss Harriet Se'wood was the richest heiress
iu herwative town ; butphelfriValready com
pleted her twenty-seventh year,,and beheld
almost all her young friends united to men
whom she had at ono time or other discard
ed. Harriet began to be set down foi an old
maid. Her parents became really uneasy,
and she herself lamented in private a posi
tion which is not a natural one, and to which
those to whom nature and fortune have been
niggardly of their gifts are obliged to submit ;
but Harriet ; -as-we - have said, was both build:
some and very rich. Such was the state of
things when her uncle, a wealthy merchant
in the north of England, came on a visit to
her parents. He was a jovial, lively, straight
forward man, accustomed to attack all diffi
culties boldly and coolly.
" You see," said her lather to him one day.
''h ern continues single. The girl is hand
some, what she is to have for her fortune you
know; even in this scandal loving town, not
a creature can breathe the slightest imputa
tion against her ; and yet she is getting to be
an old maid."
"True," replied the uncle ; "but look you,
brother, the grand point in every affair in
this world is to sieze the right motnent: this
you have nut done—it is a misfortune; but let
the girl go along with me, and before the end
of three months I will returr. her to you a wife
of a man as young and wealthy as herself."
Away went the niece with the uncle. On
the way home, be thus addressed her:
"Mind what lam going to say. You are
no longer Miss Sel wood, but Mrs.-Lumley,
my niece, a young, wealthy, childless widow.
You had the misfortune to lose your husband,
Colonel Lumley, after a happy union of a
quarter of a year, by a fall from his horse
"Let me manage if ycu please, Mrs. Lum
ley. Lime look you, is the wedding ring giv
en .you. by yoar,late husband--jewels, and
whatever else you need, your aunt. will sup
ply you,with ; and accustom - yourself to cast,
down your eyes."
The keen-witted uncle introduced his niece.
everywhere, and the young widow excited a
great sensation. The young gentlemen
thronged about her, and she soon had her
chaiea out. of twenty suitors. Her uut..-z,
advised her to talc() the one who was deepest
in love with her ; and a rare chante slecreest
that this should be precisely the most amia
ble and opulent. The match was soon con
cluded, and one day the uncle desired to say
alew words to i his future nephew in private.
"My dear sir," ho began, "we have told you
"How so? Are Mrs. Lurnley's'afroctions—"
"Nothing of the kind. My niece is sin
cerely attached to yuu."
"Then her fortune, I suppose, is not. equal
to what you have told the ?"
"On the contrary, it is larger."
"Well, what is the matter, then ?"
"A joke, an innocent joke, which came
into my head one day when I was in a good
humor—we could not well recall it afterward.
My niece is not a widow."
"What I is C,olonel Lumley living?"
"No, no; she is a spinster."
The lover protested that he was a happier
fellow than he had conceived himself; and
the old maid was forthwith metamorphosed
into a young wife. •
DasAm or• A Qt7Alcut liAnv.—There is a
beautiful story told of a pious old Quaker
lady who was addicted to smoking tobacco.
She indulged in this habit until it had increas
ed so much upon hor, that she not only smok
ed her pipe a large portion of the day, but
frequently sat up m her bed for this purpose
in the night. After one of these nocturnal
entertainmnts she died. and approached
heaven. Meeting an angel, she asked him
if her name was written in the book of life.
He. disappeared, but replied upon returning,
that he could not find it. "Oh," she said,
"do look again ; it must he there." Ho exam
ined again, but returned with a sorrowful face,
saying, "it is not there I" "0h.," said she in
agony, "it must be there ; I have the assur
ance it is there! Do look again." The angel
was moved to te.irs by her entreaties, and
again left her to renew his search. After
a long absence he came back, his face radi
ant with joy, and exclaimed, "We have found
it, but it was so clouded with tobacco smoke
that we could hardly see it I" The woman,
upon waking, immediately threw her pipe
away, and never indulged in smoking again.

A MONSTER OF THE DEEP.
In some piirts s of tIM ocean there are en
ormous sea animals, celled Sepia, which are a
kind of polypi. They have very long lege,
and are said' sometimes to seize upon the coral
divers along the coast of Italy. Mr. Beale
tolls the following adventure with a creature
of this sort e
While upon the Bouin Islands, searching
for shells on the rocks which had just been
left by the receding tide, I was
ished at seeing at my feet a most extraordi
nary looking animal, crawling towards the
retreating surf. I had never soon one like it
before, It was oreeping on its eight lege,
which, from their soft and fletible nature,
bent, considerably under the weight of its
body, so that it was lifted by the efforts of the
tent acula only a small distance from the rocks.
' It appeared much alarmed at seeing me,
and made every effort to escape, while I was
not much in the• humor to endeavor to cap.
turn so ugly customer, whose appearance ex
cited a feeling of disgust, not unmixed with
fear. I, however endeavored to prevent its
escape by pressing on one of its legs with my
foot; but, although. I used considerable force
for that purpose, its strength was s o great
• that it several times quickly libbrated its mem
ber in si ito of all the efforts I could employ,
in this way, on wet, slippery rocks. I now
laid hold of one of the tentacles with my hands
and held it firmly, so that the limbs appeared
as if it would be torn asunder by our united
strength. I gave it a powerful jerk, wishing
to disengage it, from the rocks to which it clung
so force tly by its, suckers, which it effectu
ally resist ed; but, the moment after, the ap
parently enrage d animal lifted its bead, with
its large eyes protruding from the middle of

suddenly sprang upon my arm, Which I had
previously bared to the shoulder for the pur
pose of thrusting it into the holes in the rocks
to discover shells, and clung with its suckers
to it with great power, endeavoring to get its
beak, .which I could now--see between the
roots of its arms, in position to bite.
' A sensation of horror pervaded my whole
frame when I found this monstrous animal,
for it was about four feet long, fixed so firm
ly to my arm Its cold slimy grasp was ex
tremely sickening.' and I immediately called
to the captain, who was also searching-for
shells at some distance, to come and release
me from it by taking me down to the 'moat,
during which time I was employed in keep

Tragedy in Southern Illinois

From an eye witness and a citizen of the

_two brothers by the
name of Belford.
They belonged to a family of bullies who
have been a terror to the neighborhood for
many years, and who have made a livelihood
by running -lows and catching or killing
runaway negroes from Kentucky. Each
