He thnked her eloquently, and talked
to her a little longer, kindly and affec
tionately, and then he offered to seek her
father; arid left her to her agitated re
flections. What a fine dignified man he
looked. Could it he possible that this
was her lot in life?. And the very sun
which had risen upon her planning a walk
with Mary Elliot next week, was yet
streaming upon her poor post of gerani
ums on the dusty window sill. She quitted
her scat, and began to walk quickly up
" Leslie, you are shaliing the room."
Mamma had been in the farther window
with her sewing all the time.
Le:tlie stole behind the brown window
curtain, fluttering her hand among the

fingers She started at her daughter.
She rose slowly
" Impossible, Leslie," she observed.
Leslie laughed hysterically.
" Yes, indeed. It was very strange,
but I hearti t every word."
"Are you certain you are not mistaken ?"
Mrs Bower had, never so cross exatn.
iced her daughter in her life; but Leslie
was not'disturbed or vexed by her in-
"Quite certain I know it was only
yesterday that you scolded me for taking
liberties with his name; but he was per

" Mrs. Bower gazed wistfully,,on Leslie
and a faint red color rose in her cheek
while she interlaced her fingers nervously
"Leslie,",abe asked again, in a shaken
voice, " do you know what you are doing ?"
Leslie looked frightened."
Is it so very terrible, mamma ? I
should possibly have married some day—
most girls mean to do it—and only think
of Ferodean and Otter. Besides, there,
is nobody I could like so well as Hector
Garret, I am quite sure, although I little
guessed he oared so much for me ;" and
Leslie's eyes fell, and a sunny, rosy glow
manteled over her whole face; rendering
it very soft and fair.
" I see it is, to le, Leslie. May it be
for. your welfare, my dear ;" and her
mother , stooped abruptly ; and kissed the
`young averted cheek.
Leslie was awed. She dreaded that
her fatlier wouldbe equally' moved, and
then'she did not know how 'she could
stand it., But she :night have spared
herself the apprehension :'for,when ,the
Prolessor shuffled in he sat, down as usual,
fumbled for his spectacles, looked round
with the most unconscious eye, observed
that " Ware" had that day exceeded in
his lecture by twenty minutes—" tr bad
practice," (Dr. Bower was himself no
toriously unpunctual); and took not the
slightest notice of any event of greater
importance until Leslie's suspense had
been so lung on the rack that it began to
subside into dismay, when, glancing up
for a moment, he observed parentheti
cally, as he turned a page—" Child ! you
have my approval of a union with Elector
Garrett—an odd fancy, but that is no
business of ours,"—dropped his eyes
again on his volume, and made no further
allusion to the subject for the rest of the
evening—no, nor even again of his own
will, Hector Garret assailed him on
preliminaries, his wife patiently waylaid
and besieged him for the necessary funds,
acquaintances congratulated him—he was
by compulsion drawn more than once
from roots and :esthetics ; but left to him
self, he would have assuredly forgotten
his daughter's wedding day, us he had
dune that of her ba'ptism.
Leslie recovered from the stunning sud
denness of her fate, and awoke fully to
its brightness To go down to Ayrshire
and dwell there mnotig liill and streams,
and pure heather-scented air, like any
shepherdess; to be the nearest and dear
est to (lector Garret, :--already his
aginative, warm hearted girl began to
raise him into a divinity.
Leslie was supremely content, gay and
giddy with present excitement ; with the
pretty hustle of being so important and
so occupied—she whose whole time
late:y had been vacant and idle—so will-
lug to admire her new possessions, so
openly elated with their ,uperiority, and
not insensiWe t the fact that all these
prominent obtrusive can's were but little
supeifl wins notes of the gnat s)mphony ,
neon which she Std enteied and who. , e
itilluitely deeper, fulier, higher tones she
would learn well by and by.
Leslie Bower was the personification
of joy, and no one meddled with her vis-
ions. Hector Garret was making his
or, partitions at Otter ; and when Leslie
sang as she stitched, and rail lightly up
and dmi Li, only the servant: in the kitchen
hid their heads together, and confided
t each mile: that never did they see su
&Alin' a bride ; Miss Leslie should ken
that a greetin' bride's a happy bride !"
but no one told Leslie—no one taught
her the tender meaning of the wise old
proverb—no one warned her of the re
alities of life, so much sadder, so much
holier, purer, more peaceful than any illu
sion. Her inother'had relapsed into her
ordinary calmness, rather wounding Les
lie's preeeptions when she allowed her
self to think of it, for she did not read
the lingering assiduity that was so intent
it might have been employed upon her
shroud. And there was no one else—no;
Leslie was quite unaware that her glad-
IIeSS WaS 0111111011 S.
Only the shadow of a warning crossed
Leslie's path of roses, and she disregard
ed it. Iler confidence in !lector Garret
and in lift, remained etribounded.
Leslie hone t 7 the best known of
her early companions, her cup brimming
over in the gracious privilege of begging
Mary Elliot to be her bridesmaid. The
Elhots had been kind to her, and had
once taken her to their cheerful country
house; and now Merry was to witness the,
ceremony, and Hector Garret had said
thatshe might, if they pleased, pay Les
lie a long visit at Otter.
Mary Elliot was a little older, a little
more experienced in womanly'k nowledge
" How strange it sounds that you
should be married so soon, Leslie, from
your old house, where we thought you
buried. We believed that you must lead
a single life, unless your father made a
pet of one of his students ; and then you
must have waited until he left college."
"It is the reverse. I have no time to
lose," nodded Leslie; " only I lector Gar
ret is not old-looking I don'tbelieve
that he has a gray hair in his head. He
is a far handsomer man than Susan
Cheyne's sister's husband."
" I know it; he was pointed out to me
in the street. Is he very fond of you,
" I lippose—a little, or he would not
. " Does he flatter you, pretend that you

to you ? I should like to be enlightened."
" No, no, Mary; real men are not like
men in books—and he is not foolish."
" But it is not foolish in a lover.r - "They
are all out of theit senses—blinded by
admiration and 'passion."
" Perhaps; but Ueda - Garret is a
clever man, only he speaks when he is
Spoken to, and does not forget you when
out nf sight. And do you know, I have
been used to clever people, and decidedly
prefer to look alp to a man."
"What does he call you, Leslie ?"
Why, Leslie, to be sure, or Miss.
Bower. 'You would not have him say
Mrs. Garret yet ?" and Leslie: covered

sounded in her own ears, and would wil
fully repeat, " Winsome Mary," "Little
Woman,' " Witch."
"No," Leslie replied, with a,n honest
frankness, " that would be speaking non
sense; and if Hector Garret thinks non
sense that is bad enough."
"Do you remember how we talked
sometimes of our husbands ?"
" Yes, I do. They were all to be he

a single child is not enough to draw out

They have been very kind to me all my
life, and I ought to be glad that they
will not miss me much. But although
it was wrong, I have often felt a little for

contented thoughts all by myself'. How

Ileetor I,n,arrel had his girl wife at ( )t
ter. and very sunny her existence was
for the lustrum of that honeymoon. It
was almost sufficient it her to be at lib
erly, fairly installed in her castle in the
air. a country home; and its lord and
master was generous, indulgent,' and
wasted, he did nut care to say how many
days, in displaying to her the green ruin
ousness of Fernilean—in climbing the
hills and htuttiu, out the wildest bows
Mr her—in taking her out in his boat.
and rowing her in sunshine and shade,
enjoying her wonder and exultation most
benevolently. In a short time he left
her to herself, fin• he had much property,
to whose numerous details he attended
with rigid conscientiousness, and he had
been a student from his youth, and sat
almost as much in his library, although
it was an airier and more s heterogene
ously fitted-up sanctuary, as Dr. Bower,
Leslie was perfectly satisfied ; in fact,
while the novelty around her was fresh,
she preferred to wander about at her
leisure, and find out places for herself;
because Hector Garret, was always hurry
ing her, and she was trying so hard to be
clever, active, and amiable. Alt, that
slight strain already perceptible. that
growth or ignorance, misconception, and
extravagant reverence—what fruit would
it bear ?
Otter was a rambling white house in a
green meadow opening to the sea. Its
salient points were its size and age. The
slowest growing shrubs in its pleasane
were tough, seamed, branched, and bow
ed with time There were few trees in
the neighborhood except at forsaken
Ferndean ; but there were low, swelling
hills crowned with heather clustering in
the valley over which Otter presided with
the dignified paternal character of the
great house of Strath or Glen. Leslie
smiled when she first heard the natives
of the district term the gray or glittering
track that bounded the western horizon,
" The,Otter Sea," but very soon she fell
into the use of the same name, and was
conscious of feeling far more interest iti
the boats and ships that crossed that
limited space, than in those which she
saw from the bill tops spread fain and
wide over a great expanse broken only
by the misty Irish coast line. Indeed,
Hector Garret explained to her that he
had seigneurial claims over that strip of
waves--that the seaweed, and, after cer
tain restrictions, the fragments of wreck
cast upon its sands, were =his property,
quite as much as .if be had waved - his
banner over it, like the gallant Spaniard
in the name of His Most Catholic Ma
Leslie bad variety in her locality : the
beach, with its huge boulders and in
spiring music ; the fields and " uplands
airy," with their hedge wealth of vetch,
briory, and bramble; the garden, the an
cient walled garden at whose antiquities
Hector Garret laughed, its high. screens
of privet and box, its sweet william and
stock, its pippins and oodlings,its.bitter
black cherries and small-damson plums
= it was Eden- to • Leslie, only Adam
would probably have proved less senten.:
tious to a poor town-bred wight; than the
Otter. garden potentate, Robin Blair.
- •Leslie played sad pranks in the early
season of her disenthrelment. - She wan-
dered far and near, and soiled the white
gowns then so popular to wear, to the
despair of the Otter servant who did up
the master's shirts and managed the mis
tress's clear starching, but who never
dreamt, in those days of frills, robes, and
flounces, of styling herself a laundress.
Leslie filled her apron with mosses and
lichens; she stole out after the reapers
had left the patch of oats which was not
within sight of the house, and gathered
among the sheaves like a Ruth. She
grew stout and hardy, and in spite of her
gypsy bonnet, as brown as a berry under
this out of-door life, until no one would
have known the waxen faced city girl;
and many a time when Hector llarret
left. his study in the dusk and found his
way to the drawing room, he discovered
her asleep from very weariness, with her
head laid down on her spindle-legged

Leslie saw so little of her husband—
perhaps it was the case with all wives ;
her father and mother were as'irtuch
apart—but Leslie did not understand the
necessity. She did not like her life to be
selfish, smooth, and aimless, except for
her own fancies, as it bad, been from the
first. She wanted to sharp% Hector Gar

acted so faithfully. She wished he thought
her half as worth consulting as his stew

had a notion that she herself was quick
and could become painstaking. She tried
entering his room once or twice uninvit
ed, but he always looked so discontented,
and when she withdrew so relieved, that
she could not persevere in the attempt.
When Hector Ghrrett went shooting
or fishing, Leslie would have acoompan

she found the housekeeping in the bands

presented Bridget Kennedy to his wife
as his faithful and honored servant; whom
he recommended to a high place in her
regard. Bridget Kenn .dy displayed more
marked traces of race than •her master,

propitiated the'rriayor of the palace with
kind words and attentions, but when she
was snapped up in her efforts, she drew

he would have adopted his old favorite's

the disadvantage of a noble temper in an
unseemly struggle. Bridget plagued Les

no, not fur the world. The imperious old

COLONEL JACOB M. CAMPBELL.
The importance of the pending politi
cal campaign in this State, and the en-
thusiasm everywhere created among loyal
men by the nomination of two distin
guished soldiers for the only offices to be
filled this year by general ticket, natural
ly call for more than a brief reference to
the antecedents ant' characteristics of our
standard-bearers. In another place we
have given such information as we possess

JACOB M. CAMPBELL is a native ,of
that old' Whig stronghold, Somerset coun
ty, where he was born just forty-four
years ago. When a mere youth his pa
rents removed to Allegheny city, where
he went to school until . 1835. In that
year, being fourteen years old, he became
an apprentice in the office of the Somer
set RYleig , Democratic newspaper, in which , .
be remained until he had mastered as
much of the printing business as could be
learned in a country office of that day. In
1840 ho left Somerset and worked fur
some time "at case" in the office of the
Literarll Examiner, a monthly magazine
of considerable merit published in Pi'ts
trirgh. From here our "jour printer"
found his way to New Orleans and into
another printing office. But his active
nature was not satisfied. The steamboat
trade on the lower Mississippi presented
lin 1840, as does the oil business in l 865,
ti ntptii g inducements to enterprising
spirits who care less fur hard km eks than
for the substantial benefits which they
sometimes produce. Laying down his
composing stick, the boy of ,nineteen be,
came a steamboatinan, and for scrotal sub
sequent years filled successively the posi
nuns of clerk, mate and part owner of a
ve,sel, always, however, making Pennsyl
vania his home, which he frequently vis
ited. In 1847 the iron business of our
State attracted his attention, and he em
barked in it at Brady's Bend. In the
same year he married. In 1851 he fol
lowed the course of empire to California,
but did not long remain there, and in
1853 we find hint in Johnstown, assist
ing in the construction of our mammoth
rolling-mill. With this splendid enter
prise he remained connected up to the
breaking out of the war, holding all the
time an important and responsible posi
tion. He was one of the few men who
knew how to build and manage success
fully the greatest iron establishment in
In April, 1861, Fort Sumter was bom
barded and the first call appeared fbr vol
unteers to "rally round the flag." At
the time Mr. CAMPBELL was first lieuten
ant of a volunteer company in Johnstown,
and this company at once tendered its ser
vices to the Governor, who promptly ac
cepted them. It was the first company
to enter Camp Curtin,—Upon the organ
ization of the Third regiment of Pennsyl
vania Volunteers, Lieutenant CAEPBELL
was appointed Quartermaster, a position
which he filled with great acceptability
until the regiment was discharged. On
the 28th of July he was mustered out
of service, and on the 30th was commis
sioned to , recruit a regiment. In due
time the regilnent was raised, the com
panies composing it having been mainly
recruited through Col. CAMPBELL'S in
dividual exertions. i Eight of the compa
nies were recruited in Cambria and Som
erect counties, and two in Lehigh and
Northampton counties. The regiment
was designated the Fifty-Fourth.
For two years this regiment performed
the arduous duty of guarding sixty nii!es
of the Baltimoreand Ohio Railroad, and
while thus engaged really protected the
Maryland and Pennsylvania border from
Rebel invasion and guerilla outrages. It
is a fact which may not be generally known
to Pennsylvanians that to the Fifty-fourth
regiment they owe much of the security
they enjoyed in their persons arid prop
erty during 1862 and 1863, the two most
critical years of the war. The position
of the blifty4ourth Was, at all times, an
exceedingly trying and dangerous one,
requiring the exorcise of the utmost vig
ilance and the soundest diseretion. Dur
ing its guardianship of the railroad, it
was frequently engaged - in skirmishes
with the enemy, and upon more than one
occasion gave timely and valuable infor
mation of his movements and designs.
In addition to his ordinary duties as com
mander of the regiment, Col. CAMBELL
was almost daily called upon during this
period to decide disputes between Rebels
and Unionists residing along the line of
the railroad, and it is no exaggeration
to say Thal in 'no instance was justice
scheated or rascality rewarded. It is not
our assertion merely, but the teatimony,

CAMPBELL was in command of the P6urth,
brigade, First division, Eighth army corps,
in 'which was his own regiment.
Early in 1864 Gen. SIGEL took com
mand of the Department of West Vir
ginia, and - moved with 'all his available
troops to Martinsburg, preparatory to a
movement up rho Shenandoah Valley.
In a reorganization of the troops which
took place, Col. CAMPBELL, at his own
request, returned to his command of his
regiment. At the battle of New Mar
ket, May 15th, the regiment suffered se
verely. It oocupied the extreme left of
the line, and was the last to leave
the field. Under HUNTER the regiment
took a prominent part in the battle of
Piedmont, June sth, again occupying
the, lent of the line, and this time flank
ing the enemy's right and attacking him
in the rear. After the battle Colonel
CAMPBELL was assigned to the command
of a brigade, and as a special favor his
own regiment was transferred to it, that
it might remain under its old commander.
The brigade suffered heavily in the attack
upon the entrenchments at Lynchburg,
and covered the retreat of HUNTER'S
army when the attack failed. July 24th
the brigade participated in the battle of'
Winchester, and upon the fall of, Col.
MULLIGAN Col. CAMPBELL took com
mand of his division. He continued in
its command until its consolidation into
a brigade, 'consequent upon its many
losses in killed and wounded, and after
ward commanded the brigade. After
SHERIDAN came to the head of the De
partment, he participated in the engage
ments in the Shenandoah under that re
nowned chieftain until he was mustered
out of service nearly two months after
he expiration of his three years' term of
en! stment, his total period of service,
including the three months' campaign, it
will thus be seen, covered nearly three
years and a half.
Col. CAmPBELh's record as a politician
will bear ex a mination. Reared in the
school of Jackson Demoaracy, he voted
in 1841 for PoLK and DALLAS. In 184-8,
however, he abandoned the party which,
he had become convinced, was the cham
pion of slavery extension and the foe to
Pennsylvania's best interests, and voted
for the Free Soil candidates, VAN ISt;-
ttry and ADAMS. His residence in the
South had shown him the evils of sla
very, and he therefore gave his vote
against the party whiolisought its exten
sion. In 1`52 he voted again fur the
Free Soil nominees, HALE and JELEAN,
awl in 1856 was the delegate from Cam
bria county to the FuEmosT convention.

publican principles in his own county

influence in county politics continued to
be felt during succeeding years , In 1859
he was presented by the Republicans of
Cambria for the Senatorial nomination in
