STRATEGY AT THE FIRESIDE
At seventeen the process of conversion
is apt to be rapid. Barbara lay awake
nearly all that night, thinking, praying,
and weeping. With her sudden detesta
rion of l'egrarn mingled the personal con
sideration that he knew that Tony was
the son of her own favorite, Aniy,—the
friend of her childhood.
" if he had one spark of true re
,ard , tor me," t hou f! ht Barbara, "not to

would he have shot. the son of A njy.

has wade him that."

up arguments, both moral and ticontithical,

music-lesson. Let us leave her for a few
minutes, and Ay to another part of the
city, wFf'ere, in one of the MMUS of the
Provost-Marshal's office, the Rebel mail
was being examined. Captain Yu nrose
entered, and Detective Wilkins handed
hint a letter he had just opened. It was
addressed to Colonel Pegram, an•l was
signed by Mrs Daniel Diriwiddie. We
will take the liberty of quoting a portion
" I know toy dear Charley, that you
have been obliged to draw largely un
your financial resources in aid of the greet
cause rd.-.Sout hero independence, and I
am nut ,urprised that you should find
yourself so severely pushed for money.
I sent you five hundred dollars in greeri
backs in my last, the savings of Brrbara
and myself. I hope to send you as much
by the next mail. I regret to say that
fur the last six months my husband has
utterly refused to allow me one cent for
what he calls disloyal purposes. I con
sequently have to practise sortie finesse
in getting what I do. The money he
gives us for dressVs, and for charity is all
-aved up for you ; add then I manage to
make our grocer's and butcher's bills ap
pear twice as large as they really are, and
thus add to our savings. It is mortify
ing to have to resort to these shifts ; but
when I reflect on what it is till tor, I feel
abundantly justified. Mr. Din-widdie'
income the last two years his been etior

million. A good part of this, my dear
Charley, shall be yours as soon as you

meant, l won't to be won, but not too
easily.' She sees no young tnen, and I
watch her closely, for I am resolved ti.at

as if yen were on the ~p)t."

it was handed to Into for perusal. 'I ha;

" Yes, Mr. Dinwiddie,— from the

the Captain ; but he wouldAave put more

to the preoccupation of Barbara's heart
Mr. Dinwiddie sat down at stable and
wrote these lines :
" BARBARA,—Captain Arthur Penrose

"Indeed ! Then I'm at your servi -e."

He had his hat in his band, and walk

"Dense take the fellow ! can't he stay
patiently here five minutes ?" thought
Barbara. She dropped the rose she had
been holding. The Captain picked itup
and offered it.
"Keep it., Sir, if you think it worth
while," said Barbara,—driven to this in
cipient impropriety by the vague appre
h nsions excited by her father's letter.
"Thank you," replied the Captain, an
taken by surprise that he forgot his ruin

Barbara esteemed it a very charming
symptom; and as the Captain, with his
one unwounded arm, tried rather awk•
wardly to put the flovier in the button
hole of his waistcoat, she stepped up with
a "Let me aid you" ; and, taking from
her own dress a pin, fastened the rose
nicely as near as she could to the beating
heart of the imperilled soldier Alas !it

"What a lucky idea!" thought Bar

"No matter. Come ! Here 's a mar

It was one of the Captain's favorites;
and as the two voices, resonant and pone.
trating, rose on the eborus in Perfect ac-
cord, the singers thought they had never
sung so well before, and each attributed
it to the excellent time of the other.
Nero and anotl er person listened at the
aperture of the folding-doors : Nero, who
was musical, going through a show of
vehement app1au5e,,.,9,0 4 , throwing him
self about in n manner that would have
made his fortune as an Ethiopian min
Other songs followed in rapid succes
sion ; and when the Captain sang "Annie
Lawrie," coa espression,, accompanying
himself on the piano with one hand, Bar
bara exclaimed, with a frank burst of gee.
'•Uh, but you sang that superbly !"
She had quite forgotten her'anxiety a
bout her father's return.
Then they talked of t e popular corn
posers ; and from music their conversa
tion glanced on literature; and(drom lit
erature the Captain ventured on thedan•
genius ground of politics.
"Are you incorrigibly a Rebel ?" he
Barbara looked down.' She feared that
any confession of change in her notions
would seem too much like insincerity.
"Now I 'am going to lecture you," he
continued. "Are you not rttjoiced that
Maryland is a Free State ? that no long
er on this boil a man has power to rob a
fellow-man of his labor, and to shoot him
down, if he lifts a hand in opposition to
brutal oppression ? Does not your gener
ous heart tell you that the system under
which such injustice is organized is wrong,
unol.ristian, devilish ? Are we not well
rid of the curse ?'
Barbara looked up, and responded in a
hearty, emphatic Yes.
"But" she added, "my conversion is
recent. And who do you suppose con
"I cannot imagine.
Here a door was thrown open, and Mr.
Dinwiddie entered. The perf i dious man
had been listening. Captain Penrose
glanced guiltily at the clock, and saw, to
,consternation, that two hours had
somehow unaccountably sl.pped away.
I have been a loiterer, you see, Mr.
Dinwiddie, he said; "but the fault is
your daughter's. I will now take my

from her father.

"I shall esteem any circumstances for

ing, ho left the room, and Barbara rang
the bell for Nero to open the outer door.
"Saved 1 saved 1" cried Dinwiddie, ,
sinking into a chair, and covering his face
with his handkerchief.
'Saved ?sHtl saved ?" asked Barbara,
no," exclaimed Dinwiddio, start=
ing up with a very tragic expressson ,

"What secret, father ?"
"Hush—sh—sh!" said Dinwiddie,
stepping on tiptoe to one door and then
to another, and then looking with a cau
tious air under the sofa. He beckoned
to his daughter. She drew near. Once
more ho looked anxiously around the
room, and then whispered, in a hoarse.
low tone. in her ear, these,,urds, "You
shall know all in duo tiMe.'"
Little Barbara drew a long breath, and
resolved that it should not be her fault, if
the Captain was not captivated.
At that moment there was a ring at

in from high conference with a select con
olave of fashionable ladies, who yet clung
with pathetic tenacity to the declining
fortunes Of Slavery .and Secession.
For a fortnight matters seemed to go
en swiwingly. Dinwiddie had, 'as he
thought so managed as to bring the young
people repeatedly together without his
wife's having a suspicion of what was in
the wind ; and when Captain Penrose
called on , him at his counting room and
asked whether he might pay his addresses
to Barbara, Dinwiddie whirled round or.
his office stool, jumped down, and gave
the young soldier a cordial hug.
"Germ nly my dear boy ! Win her.
She likes you. I like you. Everybody
likes you. Go ahead "
"It is proper to inform yru, Sir," said
the Captain, -that my income is only
twelve hundred a year ; but"

In a transport of delight, the Captain
darted from the office, took a carriage,
and drove to Dinwiddie's.
"Yes, Miss Barbara is in. Walk. up,

Barbara's eyes plainly spoke her pleas
ure at seeing him. Adjoining the draw

sunshine and flowers. Into that she led
him. They sat down ou one uf those snug
contrivances for a toe.u.tefr. formed like
the capital letter S. A fragrance as of
spring was shed through the room from
the open door of a conservatory, and a
canary bird near by was tuning his voice
for a song.

"Said it was a fine day, most`like," re

the leaves o: a hull-blown rose.
"No, I said not a word about the weath

objection to me ter a son-in law."

barn, after a pause, during which her
tle heart beat wildly.
"He told me 1 could settle it all with
"Indeed !" said Barbara. "But I
never had any genius for settlements, I
always hated business."
"But this is a matter of pleasure, not
of business," urged the Captain; and
then coming round to ber'side, and fall
ing on one knee, he took her unreluctant
little haid, put it to his lips, and said,
"May I not have it for my own ?"
Before she could reply, approaching
steps were heard, and a youth of some
nineteen years, wearing the coarse pea
jacket, red baize shirt, and glazed hat of
a sailor, made his appearance.
"Culpepper 1" exclaimed Barbara,
while the Captain resumed his seat.—"is
"Yes," replied the youth. "Sister, I

And the firt.t kiss was exchanged

The cub's heroics were ignominiously

seized from behind, while his pistol was
wrenched from his grasp. Two armed

Nero almost sank into his boots with
excess of enjoyment, but abruptly put on
a very agonized face, and showed the
whites of his eyes, as Mrs. Dinwiddie
looked towards him.
Cully submitted, though with an ill
grace to what was plainly a case of ne
cessity ; but he turned. before crossing
the threshold, and said to Penrose,—
"I take everybody to witness, Sir, that
I prohibit your having anything further
to dcrwith my sister. The commquences
be on 'your own head if you disobey."
- "And Captain Penrose," said Din
widdie, "take everybody to witness, that,
'if, after having paid the court that_you
have to my daughter, you now refuse to
take her as your• wife, the consequen
ces, Sir, must be on your own head."
" Sir ," said the Captain, '' that is the
most agreeable threat that I can imagine.
I have already committed myself to your•
daughter." .„ J
"Ah ! disgraceful I" groaned Mrs.
" What do you say to that, Cully ?"
said the lather, as, with no , very gentle
thurst, he replaced the glazed hat on the
youth's h ad. Cully kept silent. The
recollection of certain debts which could

There was an ambush in preparation,
of which these two did not dream. '
Two days after Barbara and her moth
er wero on their way to Montreal.
This was the flank movement, and it
was thus accomplished. Theseeond morn
ing after her husband's departure, Mrs.
Dinwiddie burst into Barbara's apartment
with the intelligence that she had just
received a telegraphic dispatch from Mr
Dinwiddie, bidding'her start at once for
Montreal to procure certain funds in the
hands of a esrtain party there,which fund,
were immediately wanted Barbara, to
whom all business matters were mysteries
profound us the income tax or the nation
al debt., received it all wit hodt a question.
She did not stop to ask, " Why doesn't
father send one of his clerks ?" or " Why
can't he do it all by letter ?" She took
it for granted that there was a great
hurry about sonrething that required an
instant journey to Montreal So she
wrote a let ter to Captain Penrose, ( which
Mrs Dinwiddie took good care to inter
cept,) and, before aria. er hour had slip
ped by, mother and daughter were at the
Northern railway station.
The old lady had taken the precaution
to send Nero on an errrnd out of the city,
arid bad hired a hack to convey her to
the cars But as she was attending to
her trunk, an officious gentleman in black
stepped up to Barbara, and asked for
what, place she wished to have the bag

could inter pose, Barbara had answered.

had simply remarked, "1 don't think they
check baggage so far," and then had
walked away in the direction of the tele
graph-office,—for what purpose the sequel
must suggest. Mrs. Dinwiddie thought
nothing mole of the mutter. They pass
ed through Philadelphia and New York
the next day uninterrupted.
At Rutland, Vt , a Very civil sort of
gentleman accosted them in the car, and,
on learning that they were on their way
Canada, asked if they had a passport.—
On Mrs. Dinwiddio's replying in the neg
ative, he iuflulned her, that by a recent
order of the United States Government,
persons traveling to and from Canada
were required to have passports ; and he
advised her to stop at Rutland, and he
would telegraph to New York and procure
them After some hesitation, she con
rented to do this The third day of her
detention, her volunteer informant came
with the necessary papers, and at the
sane time introduced Mr. Glide. an ob
sequious little gentleman, who said he
was going to :11ontreal, and should b..
happy to render any service in hi: power
to the ladies .
"Surely, Sir, I have seen von before."

"Oh, there's no danger," returned Mr.
Glide. "I'm discreet. Your devotion to
the Confederate cause, Madam, your noble
efforts, your sacrifices, ha :e long been

opportunity of expressing my thanks and
my admiration. Is there anything I can

Mrs Dinwidaie looked significantly
at him, 'nodded her head by way of warn

I see, Madam," murmured Mr. Glide,
in a ocrifi.lential tone.
" Barbara, go and pack my trunk,"
Barbara left the room.

young girl has recently engaged herself,

man, with bright, affectionate eyes, (very
much like the Captain's,) who seemed
to regard liar with a gratified look. On
the side of Penrose stood—horrors !—Mr.
Dinwiddie himself, a smile of fiendish
exultation on his face ; while a .gentle
man with a white cravat and a narrow
collar to his coat, evidently an Episcopal
clergyman, went up and shook hands
with Barbara, and then mingled with
the rest of the company.

guests accosted as Air. Carver, drew near
