A TALE OF THE LATE WAR.
BY ALICE ARNOLD.
Brief and blissful were the days
that followed. Maude seemed to
herself to be living through some
beautiful fairy dream ; Henri was
scarcely ever absent from her side,
and Rose having too much tact to
make a third in their walks and rides,
it was as secluded and romantic
as though they were
•‘ln Sicilia’s ever blooming stiade.”
But political crisis will not wait
on lovers’ leisure, and ere the honey
moon was over, South CaVolina had
seceded from the Union, and called
on all her sister States to follow her
Ii was with a changing cheek that
Captain de Caroll read the announce
ment one morning in the “Richmond
Examiner.” “I must delay no long
er now !” he exclaimed, and laying
his finger on the paragraph, placed
the paper before his wife’s eyes.
She only looked up into his face
with an expression of mute, be
“I must leave you to-day, my
soul,” he said.
“Oh Henri!” And her cold fin
gers closed tightly over his.
“You would not have your hus
band a dishonored man, my own
“Dishonored? never!” And all
the spirit of the “old Dominion”
flashed, in that instant, from her deep
blue eyes. “I will help get you
ready at once.”
“Noble girl!” said Rose, warmly.
“Here’s my Spartan wife,” whis
pered Henri, drawing her closer to
him, “I will go forth now to battle
for my countiy’s rights,, but when
the war is ended, and I come home

eral, Mignon —,your father will then
no longer refuse to receive me as
Thus he caressed and encourag
ed, while, with pale visage but un
complaining lips, she packed his
valise and performed other little of
fices of love.
The hour for departure came all
too soon. “Keep up heart, dear
love," he murmured, While shower
ing kisses on lip, cheek and brow,
“It will not'be for long; I shall re
turn as soon as I have shaken off Un
cle Sam’s shackles, and then my
heart will be lighter. Au.revoir my
peri.” And with a final embrace,

She stood leaning on the little
wicket gate, looking after him; and
her heart seemed to stand still when
the sound of his horse’s hoofs were
lost in the distance. “Oh, Heaven !
all the light will die out of my life
until he return,” she moaned, bury
ing her face in her hands, and sink
ing on her knees on the ground,
“Until he return!”
The Angel of the Brigade.
Child-bride, there is a lie upon
She returned to her father’s bouse
the day after her husband’s depar
ture ; but neither by word or look
did she betray to any one her alter
ed position; and Colonel Arlington
never dreamed that the blushing
maiden who had left her home little
more than a fortnight since, was now
returned to it a wife. The girl of
seventeen was.no longer a child, but
a woman, capable of concealment;
ready to do and to endure.
••* • - *
Three weeks passed, and there
was no news of Captain de Caroll.
Maude's eyes grew hollower, and
r there was a false ring in her once
joyous laugh. What she suffered,
none could tell; she confided in no
“God knows—and He alone—
The utmost hell ot the deceitful heart.”
Three months passed: and still
no letter, no message, no tidings
whatever of the absent one. Maude’s
internal anguish of suspense became,
at times, almost insupportable. Her
health visibly declined, and her fa
ther’s anxiety was awakened on her
account. But still she must bear
her burden alone. The mask could
not be laid aside. Concealment was
more than ever essential, now that
torturing doubts of her husband’s
fidelity began to creep into her brain.
Col. Arlington’s words were con
stantly ringing in her ear: “He is a
stranger, a Frenchman; and we
know nothing of him further than his
relationship to Mrs. Rulhven.” A
man of her father’s years must cer
tainly be belter acquainted with men
and the world than a totally inex
perienced young girl like herself;
and might it not be that she had in
deed “given the world for love?”
Then she would reject the idsa
with indignant scorn, and bitterly re
proach herself for having harbored,
for an instant, such unworthy sus
picions. But sometimes, when she
was wandering aimlessly to and fro
in the gallery, where hung the por
traits of all her proud old ancestors,
the thought of her being a forsaken
bride, or deceived maiden, nearly
maddened her. How they would
curse her, “those haughty dead,”
could they know what dishonor she
had brought upon the name !
Mrs. Ruthven was absent, having
joined her husband in Richmond,
and—3trange though it may seem—
her departure was a great relief lo
Maude. She had seen Rose but once
since Captain de Caroll went away,
and she had, on that occasion, ex
pressed great surprise and dismay at
his not writing; but could give no
explanation of, or consolation for,
the circumstance. Thus, Maude
felt that it was better for her to take
up her dear burden and bear it in
secref. Beneath her fragile exteri
or, lurked a prodigious spirit; and
her youth, also, was a great advan
tage. This, her first love, was fresh
and strong ; and under circumstan
ces to which a woman of maturer
years and experience might have
succumbed, faith and hope sustained
It must eventually be explained,
she continually told herself, when
the doubts assailed her mind; and
put all her trust in Time, the magk
cian whose wand was expected to
change the desolate mourning house
of her heart into a place of joy.
But it was weary, waiting.
•'* * * •
Two years passed and the events
that marked their course must be
briefly recapitulated. It behooves
me not lo enter into t|ie details of the
war, for abler pens than mine have
already depicted the desolation that
swept over the land, “the wreck of
reason, and the waste of life,” the
ravaging of Southern homes and the
complete ruin in which the whole
Southern country was involved; and
I have to deal only wilh the charac
ters in this story. Immediately up
on the commencement of hostilities,
Colonel Arlington volunteered, was
placed in command of a regiment,
and fell at Cheat Mountain.
A short time after tfieir bereave
ment, Maude and her little brother,
Roland, (who was then just sixteen)
were one night roused from siurftber
by a bright, lurid glare shjniqg into
their windows. Maude sprang from
bed, and hurrying to her brother**
room, found that he, also, was up.
They dressed themselves hastily;
and while so doing, old NeHfej their
nurse, ran stealthily up the back
stair-case and came into Maude’s
“Oh, Missie,” she said, trembling
all over, “You jis git yo lings toged*
der, bof on you, an’ come ’long wid
me, you and Mass Roly. De Yan
kees is on de place now, and dem
black debbil ot nigger is set fire to
barn and all de fence. . Make a heap
o’ hurry chile!” And collecting a
lew articles pf clothing together in a
bundle, and taking Maude’s jewel
box and purse, she went to Roland’s
room. “Now, here, Mass Roly,”
she said, “you jis pit on my apron
and shawl; nobody is goin to trouble
ole ooman like as dey will young
gentleman,” and without waiting for
his assent, she arrayed him in the
aforesaid garments; and thus dis
guised, he, with his sister followed
her cautiously down the back stairs
and out of the house. Circumstan
ces seemed to favor their escape;
there was no moon, and a large num
ber of the negroes, carrying torches,
were gathered in front of the house.
Undiscovered they made their way
toward a secluded woodland path;
and just as they were entering it,
two horses ran past, with their manes
flying wild, and evidently in a great
state of terror.
“It is Mabel and Rollo,” whisper
ed Maude; and looking back, she
saw thal the stable was in flames.
“The hoises would be of great
service to ns,” said Roland, and he
called softly to Rollo, who, recog*
nizing his master’s voice, turned
round and came up to him ; seem
ing, by a remarkable sagacity, to
comprehend their danger, be did not
neigh, but suffered Roland lo mount
him. Mabel followed his example,
and Maude, seizing the flowing
mane, sprang lightly on her back.
“Which route shall we take ?”
“To General Lee’s headquarters,”
replied his sister; and they urged
the horses forward. It was bard
riding, barebacked and wilh no bet
ter bridles than tho halters; but a
merciful Providence guided the
steeds and sped them on their flight.
They would have taken old Nellie
with them, but she preferred to re
main, and there was no time to be
lost in persuading. They had not
proceeded a mile when they heard
the sound of distant shouting; and
pausing for an instant, on a slight
eminence which commanded a view
of the grounds, they perceived that
the dwelling house had been, fired.
Maude’s “heart grew hot within
her” at the sight. The graud old
pile, where generations of Arling
tohs had lived, feasted and ruled,
like the old baronial monaichs of
Feudal Times, was now one mass of
rocking flames; and around it, in
wild carnival, danced the dusky de
mons who, but one week before, bad
sworn eternal fidelity to tbe orphan
brother And sister. With a sharp,
suppressed ory of pain, Maude turn
ed her head away, and urged Mabel
rapidly forward. They rode all
uight, and early next morning came
in sight of the Confederate camp at
Valley Mountain. Roland threw
himself from the horse, and tearing
ofi his disguise, lifted bis balf-faint
ing sister in his arms and-placed her
on her feet. They had made the
best of their time. and both horses
and riders were terribly jaded. Ma
bel and Rollo were given in charge
to a soldier, who respectfully offered
his services; while another conduct
ed them to the General’s tent.
Tbe pale, beautiful girl, dressed
in deep mourning, with her golden
hair dishevelled and her large eyes
hollow from sorrow and unrest,
would have inspired compassion ev
en in a more rugged breast than that
of tbe chivalrous Lee; and tears
rose to the soldier’s as he ex
tended bis hand in welcome. Their
situation was briefly explained, then
Roland applied for admission into
“Willingly,” replied the General,
“and I doubt not that tbe son of tbe
gallant and lamented Colonel Ar
lington will soon prove himself wor
thy of his father’s sword."
Tbe youth flushed delightedly, as
he bqwed bis acknowledgment of
this gracious speech; then Lee
turnedtoMaude. “Acd you, madam,
what wjjl yon do ?” . .
“ What I am going m ask. Gener
al,” Ae replied, speaking in a low,
steady voice, “will doubtless seem
strange to you; but my tocher is
everything in the world to sm. and
good bersp and 1 can make ourselves
usebil in otiboosand uray*. L might
carry dispatches, and feel tbat 1
conld render efficient service as a
spy ; —Oh General, let me be with
The General looked grave. “Have
you no relations with whom you
might stay he asked.
“I have an aunt in Richmond,”
she replied, “but oh, sir, do not sep
arate me from my brother; we are
all in all to each other. Just try
me for a month in camp, and if I am
in the way at all, I promise to go to
Richmond and slay there ; but only
give me a trial 1”
“Are you aware, Miss Arlington,-
that you would encounter great dan
gers, and endure many hardships?”
“I am prepared to brave all dan
gerand share all hardship,” she an*
swered resolutely ; and it was final
ly agreed upon that she should be
appointed regimental courier, with
the rank of lieutenant.
The brother and sister shortly af
terward, accompanied General Lee
to the Kanawha region, whither he
went to relieve Wise and Floyd;
and Roland, who, of course, entered
as a private, was, in his first battle,
promoted to the rank of sargeant.
Maude, also, proved that her boast
had not been a vain one; for she be
came an important adjunct to the ar
my. On her beautilul Mabel, who
was presented by the officers with a
handsome side-saddle and belong
ings, she trequently rode whole days
at a time, carrying dispatches, and
really played the part of spy in a
most masterly and ingenious man
ner, often going into the enemy’s
lines, disguised, and gleaning valua
ble scraps of information relative to
his movements. Her favorite dis
guise was that of a little country
girl, with tattered sun bonnet and
bare feet, selling fruit; but she some
times attired herself as a rustic lad,
and in both characters, was most
successful in escaping suspicion. A
portion of her time was spent in
Richmond, but she was a great deal
in the camp. The sight of her,
mounted on her elegant mare, and
dressed in her sable habit, (for she
continued to wear mourning all thro’
the war) with her golden hair and
large spirituelle eyes, so beautiful
and fearless, seemed to inspire the
soldiers, who named her “the Angel
of the Brigade,” and regarded her
with a sentiment approaching deifi
And Maude, with her dark sor
row locked in her heart, found in
this active and adventurous life, the
best safe-guard against corroding
thoughts. An ordinary domestic
existence, or the mournful routine of
a hospital could never have afforded
this stimuls to he/ brain and stav
ed off the madness which would, un
doubtedly, otherwise, have obtained
possession of it. And thus the years

The Northern press is filled with*
the disgusting details of the trial of
Laura Fair, whokiiled one Griuen
den, her paramour, in California some
lime ago. The defence is mental
aberration, and from a medical point
of view it can ne longer be a matter
of wonder that Mrs Pair killed "Col
onel Crittenden. For a person in
the condition in which she is repre
sented to have been when she com
mitted the deed, murder or suicide
was an apparently inevitable alter
native. That she chose the former
was a sort of constitutional accident;
According to the testimony of Dr.
Lyiord, sne was at the time “amemc,”
and had also “retrocedent gout,”
“metatasis,” “dismenorrhea,” Mcata
menicals” and “insomanis,” besides
being subject to “idiosyncractes.”
Any person laboring under su<&%
complication of polysyllabic disord
ers could find relief in nothing short
of murder, and it the j[ury does pot
