All Bono but you and I, old friend!
All gone but you and I I
What do we here, when In their graves
Our old compaulons lie I
Not suddenly they wont away,
But slowly, °nob) , one;
Till now we Idly gaze around
And coo that all are gone.
Closer and closer every year
The narrowing circle grow;
Until, of all that cheerful band,
flat I rentair and you.
And thinking of our youth, old friend
And all our lifelong years
My half numb'd heart almost o'ortlows
In a burst of woman tears.
For all things for the worse, old fylend I
Scorn strangely changed since then ;
Tho women's faces were more fair,
And heartier were the mon.
The seasons are all altered, too—
Lena genial—nay, itulte cold:
Why, Hummer scarce in warmer now
Than winter was at old :
And thinking of the past, old friend!
And thinking of the mot,
A selfish wish Springs In my hea6,
That I should not be last:
But that you, old and trusted Hood!
Should stand by my death-bed,
iteroloe the last look from my ey3s,
And close them when I'm dead.

For the '• Cartimle.floruld."
Letter from the Gold Regions
BANNACIC, IDAIIO TERRITORY;
July. 4th, 11363.
THE NEW MINF.S
Deer Herald —Barwick has ceased to be
the-western teriminus he w fra-veit ed Toad
to the gold mities of Idaho Territoty. An
other rich Cachi of Nature has been found
seventy five miles beyond us, ou the Sticking
'Water, a branch of the Madison fork.
About six weeks ago, four ragged, dirty,
half starved men, mounted on ponies and
driving before them, three pack ahimals,
mode their appearance in our main street,
late in the afternoon. Every one knew they
were returned IDspeelots, but who they
were—from what part ,f the country—how
long out—and whether they had struck any
thing," the question from the crowd, who im.
mediattly surrounded them, were unable to
elicit When they did get ready to answer
questions, they merely stated that they had
found something good enough for them"
that they would return to their discovery iu
a few days, and any who wished might go
book with them. But they would not say how
far, or in what direction the mines were.
In thirty six hours, the discoverers, who
had become much dilapidated by their their
three months prospecting tour, were new
rigged, and provisioned, and on their way
back, accompanied by upwards four hundred
men, in wagons, mounted, or on foot with
bedding and provisions packed on their tricks.
When some forty miles out, the discoverers
called a halt and refused to advance any
further until the entire company bad agreed
in writing that they should have two Claims
of one hundred feet each, freang on the
stream and extending on either side from base
to base of the hills. The distance from Ban.
neck proved to be about two days journey
with an ox team ; though horsemen htfte
since travelled it in one day
Arrived upon the ground, the party found
that the only water available for washing was
a stream containing not more than a dozen
good sluice heads equal to about 250 inches of
water, issuing under a six inch pressure, from
All who had picks, shovels and at once went
to prospecting: and as usual the richest do
posits were found not to he on or adjoining
the discovery claims—The prospects ranged
from live cents to three and four dollars to
The diggings have turned out to be richer
and more extensive than at first supposed.—
Nearly half of our population have gone over;
and there are now as many men at the "Now
Mines" as at these. The claims aro yielding
from ten dollars to five hundred dollars a
day to the hand. The richest claims are, of
course, not the most plenty. Put. Keyes is
clearing over 'one hundred dollars a day.—
This poor Irishman who has livedin the most
abject poverty For years, has in a day become
a rich man. Col. Wood &Co , are taking gut.
from WO to $OOO a day. A. few others are
doing as well or nearly as well. ' Many have
failed to secure claims, but are diligently
prospecting t he country round about, in hopes
of finding other diggings. A regular express

At a very early hour of a fine autumnal
day, a very pretty young lady, expensive
ly attired in a walking-dress of a fashon
that passed for the latest Parisian, was
daintily- pickirrg-her - wareveretie "or
crossings of Broadway, anxious to pre
serve the immaculateness of the gaiter
blots, and perhaps to display an ankle
that might have served as a model to
Canova. Just as she reached the oppo
site sidetialk, her foot slipped on the
curbstone, moist with Croton, and she
would have fallen had she not been
caught by a young man, smartly attired,
who happened to be passing at the time.
A mutual recognition instantly took place.
" Why, Mr. Bliffin, is that you ?" ex
claimed the young lady.
" Nothing shorter, Jenny," answered
the smart young man. " What a coin
cidence I I was just thinking of you when
you tumbled into my arms."
" Perhaps you think 1 slipped on pur
pose, Mr. Impudence," retorted the
"Nothing of the kind," said the smart
young man. "But what brings you from
A lbatty -? -Have - you - left your" place, us~l
have wine ?"
"0, no, indeed," said the girl ; Miss.
Jefferson is as kind to me as ever, and so
is her good old daddy Indeed, she has
promised me a thousand dollars on the
day of her marriage with young Popkins,"
" A thousand dollars I" exclaimed Mr.
Bliffin. 'O, Jenny, how I adore you !
When will you be mine ?"
" Just as soon as ever my young missis
becomes Mrs. Popkins."
" But that's settled, isn't it ?"
" I am afraid not," said Al iss Jenny,
shaking her head. " You know the old
gentleman's regard for truth, and you
know what a habit Popkins has of fib
bing. To be sure, he only Wilt; white
lies, but he's a terrible romancer:"
" Well, what of that ?"
" Simply this : Old Jefferson, who ab
bores anything like falsehood, is deter

" And of course your thousand dollars

" We must warn the young gentleman."
" Impossible, and useless if possible,"
said the pretty chambermaid. "He is

But the old gentleman's suspicions
were now fully awakened ; and though
Popkins rattled away with his usual volu

cool and monosyllabic' in his answers.
After a lapse dt some time, a waiter
presented himself, and announced Mr
Johnson Thompson. Popkins was as
much - astoniitied - as ifliohad "called up
spirits from the vasty deep," and he could
scarcely reply, "show him up," in an
audible manner, when in walked Mr.
Bliffin, so disguised in a red wig and
spectacles, that even Miss Jennysearce

" I be;; pardonfor intruding, Mr. Pop

His narrow escape taught Mr. Popkins
the importance of a virtue he bad never
practised ; the example of his wife com
pleted his cure. Mr. Bliffin was duly re
warded for opportune "conclusive evi
dence," and wade happy in the possess

cloud conies over the the felicity of Mr.
Popkins, it ,is only when his father-in-law

A Night Between Two Armies
War has its comic as well as its tragic
side, and among the ridiculous incidents
of the war, must be counted an adventure
in which I was involved one night dur
ing the precipitate retreat of Gen. Pope's
army from the Rappahannock to Wash
The army had been falling back during
the day and evening, closely pressed by
the enemy. I was acting as an orderly
to an officer on the staff of one of the gen
erals. and during the confusion of the
evening's retreat, the whole staff, (with
myself among them,) became in some
way separated from the main force. The
night was cloudy, so that there were no
stars to guide 'us, and we found ourselves
soon in the unpleasant predicament of
not knowing where we were, nor in what
direction our troops lay. Sornething,must
'be done, however, and so we started
boldly along a stony nollow that ran to
We bad ridden along this hollow some
distance without bettering our condition,
or our knowledge of our whereabouts,
when suddenly a sheet of flame flashed up
frir an elevation on our left, and with
the well known roar of artillery, a storm
of balls rushed screaming over our heads.
That wouldn't do; and, putting spurs to
our horses, we turned sharply to the right
and dashed off at full speed. But we had
not gone twenty yards when a similar flash
blazetl'up in our faces, and another volley
of balls flew past us, coming from the op
_posite_direction from, the first.---Neither
would that do, and wheeling in our tracks,
we made for the ravine again. As we did'

side of us, and as another batter); opened

a loud laugh, "Why, captain, your horse

enough, one of the horse's hind legs was
shattered by a ball. We both dismount

a particularly well aimed volley from one
of the batteries ploived up ,tb'e ground all
around and among ud. Saddles were ye- .
cated in a very great hurry, and with the
cry of "every man for himself," there was
a general scamper for the bushes and
trees. I kept
,close to the captain, and
together we lay under a bush for a long
time waiting for the fire to slacken. At
length, getting impatient, the captain be
gan to crawl-thrqugh the bushes to the
battery on our right. I bad my misgiv
ings about the direction we were taking,
but, of course, said nothing. Soon, how
ever, the captain stopped, and turning to
me with an' expression of mingled impa
tience and chagrin, blurted out, " Order
ly, do you know where I'm going ?"
" No, sir," I replied, saluting, " I don't
know, but I tkink'you are going straight
to the rebel lines " With an exclama
tion more vigorous than classic he turned
in his tracks, and we began a careful re
connoisance in force towards the opposite
batteries, which were still belching away
for dear life. After an indeffinite scram
bling and creeping, we gradually ap
proached a battery from a little to one
side, so as to be out of range of the guns.
Balling unperceived at a safe -distance,
we tried anxiously to make out the color
of tlie men's coats; but the darkness of
the night and the smoke that hung around
the pieces prevented our distinguishing
whether they were grey or blue. • Becom
ing impatient, my companion shouted
out, " What battery is this ?" It was
an anxious ( moment and we Waited eager
ly for a response '-
But " Right piece fire I—left piece
fire I" was the only answer that reached
us between the ,roar of the guns, We ad
vanced a little nearer, and again the cap
tain shouted, " What battery is this ?"
" Right piece fire !—left piece fire I" was
again the only response we could catch.
Rendered desperate the captain marched
right up to within a few ,paces of the
guns, strange to say unnoticed, and once
more roared out, " What battery is this?"
"Eh !" replied the commander of the '
piece, starting and surveying with the
profoundest astonishment, the strange
officer who had apparently dropped from
the clouds, at his side, " why the—th
New York Battery, to be sure."
