A TALE OF THE LATE WAR.
BY ALICE ARNOLD.
The following day two divisions
ol the Federal cavalry, under Tor
bert, attacked Lomax and were
handsomely repulsed; but this is
matter of history, and I am not a his
torian. During the engagement,'
Maude de Caroll, stationed on a\
eminence which commanded the
battle ground, knelt and prayed,
scarce knowing what she did, that
her traitor husband might fall by her
young brother’s hand. ’Twas the
first time in her whole life that she
had ever felt actual hatred t«» any of
God’screaiures,an(l alas; she deem
ed not that
“Curses, like chickens, come home to roost.”
In the official report of this en
gag. ment, we find the following
“(fi n. Lomax's loss was slight.”
How drear a mockery they would
have rung upon one heart that
* * • • •
’Twas evening ; th“ storm of bai -
tie had subsided, pursuers and pui
sued were miles away, and a solemn
hush reigned in the air. On the
edge of the road a woman knell,
supporting upon her bosom the head
of a youth who was rapidly gasping
his last moments away, and beside
them, leaning on his sword, stood
the dying boy’s superior officer, who
ha i loved him as his own son. The
strong man wept; but the woman’s
lace was stony and tearless. Her
golden hair was dabbled in the blood
which she had vainly tried to staunch,
and the dews of anguish stood out
upon her brow, but her lips uttered
no sound, as she beheld the grey
shadow descend upon the features
of the last loved one.
Suddenly be started up, unclosed
bis eyes, and fixing them upon the
West, bis lips moved inaudibly ; a
smile of rapture lit up his counte
nance, there was a short, low, gurg
ling sound ; then his spirit burst its
bonds, and but the fair casket wa9
left in her arms. And the setting
sun spread out red ih the West, fit
emblem of a soldier’s death ! And
the sombre twilight that succeeded
was typical of the valley 6f shad
ows, which leads to. the moonshine
of eternal blessedness.
It was a pure young life that had
passed away; for nu mean or dis
honorable action had yet sullied Ro
land Arlington’s career, and faith
fully had he borpe bis part in his

Wheie the nqoon-lkhtlovhig felt,

and ibe geuilebirds rang his requiem.
But she, the accursed, the outcast,
with the wrath of Heaven branded
on her brow, excluded from the Ca
naan of rest which her parents and
brother had found; she, who had
deceived them, must wander forth
into the world and Walk iu the thorny
path which 9he had herself chosen
must tread the burningplnujli-shures
of life, and reap the kmtei tffjut at
her early sowing. “Qunnd on 10/jre.

friends urge,d her to remai'rt pSr’fna
nently with them ; but the idea of
tame inaction w aa insupportable to
her. Other women there were who
performed valuable service in the
field as well as the hospital; she had
beard lately of Rose Ruthven, who
had accompanied her husband to the
West, and Miss Belle Boyd’s name
was on every lip; but which of them
was so well-fitted for the service as
she, bereft of every- tie, and longing
to fling her life away ? The threat
ened evacuation of the Capital, also,
was a great argument in her favor;
as soon as she was strong enough
she returned to the cams, and when
we next behold her it is as the bear
er of important dispatches to Gener
al Longstreet, with whom the Com
mander-In-Chief was then endeavor
ing to form a junction.

It was a mild afternpon in the Feb
ruary of’6s, that four men in Fed
eral uniform were sauntering along
the Vaughn road, two of them, in ad
vance, conversing in an anxious and
“We’re certain of her, now,” said
one, drawing a long breath, and stop

“How do you know she was to
come this road ?” demanded his com

his thumb over his shoulder one ol
the men behind—“that deserter from

starveling figure, raised his finger,
saying “HistAnd just then the
sound of horses’ hoofs was heard.
The men stationed themselves, two
on each side of the road, with their
pistols cocked and ready ; and pres
ently Mabel’s glossy brown head e
merged from a bridle path in the
woods. Instantly, the man who had
first spoken, rushed forward and
seized the bridle. “Surrender, in
stantly, or die!” he said, raising his
pistol on a level with the rider’s
head ; and his three companions
Maude thought of the papers she
carried,, and resolved to attempt a

said, without, showing any signs of
fear, '*l pledge you my sacred word
of honor to raise whatever sum you

unmolested, to-day.” All the valu

watch, a costly diamond ring, and
her wedding nag* which latter she
was resolved—mockery, though it
might, be—'.liver to part with ; but
taking ihe diamond from her finger,
she offered that, with her watch, as
hostages of her promise. The men
only laughed, however.
“Oh, you’re a sly one; I know

had put the others oif’the scent, “hut

When they had reached the mid
4le> vv .i ,ere H** - Water was tojerably
deep, Maude, feigning to be seized
with a veiiigp, suddenly threw her
self from the horse, and dropped on
her face into die stream below.
Quick as thought, while apparently
struggling to lise, she tore the pa
pers from her bosom and thrust them
under the water. The darkness fa
vorer! her little manoeuvre; and she
was lifted hacK into her saddle with

They reached the Federal camp
at ten, and the prisoner was at once
taken to headquarters, where Gen

cers were conversing together. The
guard first entered, announced her
arrival, then ushered her into the

(To be continued.)
A Frightful Coal-mine Disaster.
A terrible disaster has occurred
at the West Pittslon (Penn.) coal
mine, by which a portion of the
working force of the mine has been
sacrificed. The shaft of the mine
was discovered to be on fire in the
afternoon of May 27th. This was
the only entrance lo the mine, and
to the excited and horrified crowd of
10,000 people ihat soon gathered,
there seemed scarcly any hope that
one of the fifty men in the mine
could be rescued alive. The utmost
exertions to subdue the fire were
made, men working with an energy,
of despair., but the flames Were not,
extinguished until several hours had
passed. The engineer hoisted out
three carriage loads of men when
the tire was tir.-t discovered, anil
though he rerna ned at his post and
lowered and hoisted ihe earring*-
until the ropes were burned off, no
more men were raised. At the end
of 24 hours Iroin the time the fire
was first seen, the last of the 38 en
tombed men was brought out.-
Eighteen of this number were borne
out dead, and the others in a help
less condition. The faces of the
dead bore evidence that death had
been attended with terrible agony,
and mauy of the living showed the
most intense suffering. Some of the
twenty rescued alive are spoken of
as being in a condition to warrant
much hope of their recovery. Two
of the number have since died.—
The exploring party were com
pelled to proceed with the utmost
caution, and were frequently
brought out asphyxiated with foul
gases. Oae of the survivors said
the first intimation they had of the
fire was a noise like an explosion.
Eighteen of the miners gathered in
a room on the west side of the mine
and attempted to erect a barricade
to keep the smoke from suffocating
them. No one expected to see day
light again. They sang hymns and
prayed, believing themselves be
yond human aid, while men were
outside the improvised wall crying
out in anguish and despair. Most
of the men probably became insen
sible by 7.30 P. M. May 29, the
Coroner’s inquest developed the fact
that over 40 persons wero in the
mine when the fire broke out. Sev
eral witnesses testified that the
means of ventilation were inade
EXCITEMENT AT THE MINE.
At the scene of the catastrophe
the excitement wa3 almost indescri
bable. Thousands of people crowd
ed around the mouth of the pit in
their eagerness to see and hear. Ve
hicles of all descriptions came on
the ground from all directions, and
from every portion of the Wyoming
and Lackawanna vallies, and the
streets of Piltslon and West Piltston
were crowded with pedestrians hur
rying to and from the scene of dis
aster. It has not yet been clearly
ascertained how thp fire originated
though it appears to have been
caused by friction in ih'“ journals of
