By night tho chamber was halt full of flowers ; Frod hail bought oue small shop clean opt, and the vendor never ceased staring till tho last plant was gono. Ho had rifled the conversatory, also, ofjsomo of its choicest ornaments, and tho house was lull of perfume. What pains he took to .sort them, and arrange them like a garden, with walks between . “Really, this is more beautiful than tho other was, a great deal,” said Hmily, after she hail laughed till sho was tired at the quaintnoss of tho idea 1 . “Yes, if Mount don’t get n pipe and blast them all With vitriol, or some such thing,” replied Fred. “lie'll never tlonlv of it; oil! if wo only Jiad a glass roof.” “Ono wyntgfatifped introduces two more,” sai I Fred, smiting. “Yes, hut tea is ready.” An orderly stood waiting at tho door do v: v taira. “Well, William?*’ “Didn’t your honor make an asparagus bed thin spring, sir ?”asked tho man, alter a mititaiy salute. “Certainly I did, the finest asparagus bod in the country,” replied Fred, vivaciously, never dreaming of what was to come next. “I saw tho captain’s orderly digging it up, that's ail,” said the map. “Digging it. up—digging up my aspara gus hod ! what in creation will they do next'/ Hand mo my cap', wife/’ exclaimed Fred, bis faco turning crimson—'let me see if there is not some mistake.” “Remember your promise,” said his wife gently, ns sho handed down his fati.guo cap. “Yes, yes, never fear; digging up my as paragus pod! By alf that isn't in tho wa ters beneath, or tho earth, or the heavens, I'll know what this means !” Fred had time to reflect going toward tho arparagus bed. Sure enouh, it was all dug ovor, or nearly all. “Stop! what are’you about ?’ ho cried to the man employed. “bagging, it over, sir,” said the man, who was an Irishman. “VVho gave you the orders?” ‘•The casting, sir, lie's giv’ me the orth era. Frod stood for a moment, almost in de sps:r. llis beautiful asparag is bed, that he had taken so much pains with, given to him for the purpose, too; it was too hard. — l M i‘ a moment lie felt impolled to spring up on the l’rrstm*u.ji_and knock him ovor: but then it was not his IttuH, he was obeying orders. 310 stood there penMvoK- regard ing the sliovol as the Irishman s sturdy foot ploughed it uitcwr, then, without saying a word, ho turned and walked slowly homo. e must do without the asparagus, dear,” ho said quickly to his wife—“it is all dug up.” “ho without it! why, husband mine, will thore bo no asparagus in town besides what you bad planted ?” Ho laughed at hot- cheerful face, and dis missed his chagrin. All through tho sum mer soason poor Cameron had trials suffi cient to test his patienco to tho utmost. The row was turned into his neat yard evo ry night; ho was put to all manner of in eonvcfhoiice in the mailer of receiving his rations, and in a thousand ways trilled with—but Emily was bis good angol—to ! her bo looked for comfort and advice. He had borne bis lot bravely; not ouco bad lie by any unoflicor-liko language, or manner, laid himself liable (o report, and, best of all, ho bad learned that difficult lesson, self control. It was early in the autumn, and Emily, liko a good housewife, had superintended the pickling and preserving for tho ensuing wintor. The peaches, red-and rich, swam in a sea of sweols—tho plums wero tucked away in broadmouthed jars, the cranberries and crab-apples were enough to make one’s mouth water—and never did pickles look fresher and greener. The cellars under tho liouso had compartments, and each officer occupied bis own portion, wlych was always HAMILTON, IJEORGIA, FRIDAY'MORNfiu!, SEPTEMBER* 23, Mi under lock and key. Thither, linen, to tho place set apart by Fred, wore these choice sweetmeats carried, and safely deposited on shelves and in boqks. The day alter cknva the captain’s orderly with a request for Lieut. Cameron's cellar key. * “He can't have it,” exclaimed Emily with more indignation than abehad ever display ed bcli>ro. ~ . , t “Stop, Emily ? would you undo the good worL- you have done?” asked Fred, mildly “jUvo me the key,, love, you know I mast obey orders.” “Rat this is righkdown meanness, Fred, does ho mean to #al ourprv.iyves ?” con tinued Emily, indigegtiuly. ■■ “() no, my dear I ’lie iUprfHe that we shall call for tho key wuetusvvr we want to gel at the.m.” “1 will never ask him for the key, bo sure of that,” replied Emily. “What will you do for tho preserves ?” asked her husband. “Go without them, as you did without your asparagus bed,” she answered, laugh ing a little. “So bo it thon,” replied Fred, and gave tho key up to the orderly—adding, “tell Captain Mount that wo have no further use for the key.” VI. ’fie sun poured batty upon Ilia barracks,- and Uio men wont through their drill like automatons, for tilt) heat was as that of a furnace. It was pitiful to see them standing or inarching with tho great drops ot sweat dripping from their tiro was pit iful io sec tho littlo drummer .hoys bearing their heavy drums, and tittering nUwoSt under their woight and tho close oppressive atmosphere. It was mid Ocfpbcv; there Imd been no rain for weeks, ex’ cpt now and then n few drops that men ended a shotvor, and theio wiw much sickness in the yard. At the doors of the .barracks sat pale and haggard marines, just recovering, or so mo times, ns a curtain moved faintly, a pale form, might ho seen stretched on'the hod of disease, gasping for breath, and praying Cut water. Asyot, tho form ofibt'j’y had not been malignant-—bat tho woathtfr • was so sultry, and so unnatural for,that late month, that many predicted the scourge that soon followed. Captain .Mount sat in his handsome sit ting-room, reading and writing How ho would answer a letter from tho department o£ All hi*:mavi+r+f**- “It is very strange, this t-onfoumUd dimfi ncss!” he suddenly exclaimed, throwing aside the sheet ho was perusing and drop ping; his head On his hands—‘‘ever sineo 1 got Up I liat-o stumbled about like a blind kitten,” and lifting himself again, he rang a small bell beside him on the table. An orderly answored the summons. “Well, Graves, how is the sickness now?’’ ho asked. “Worse, I’m sorry to say, sir,” replied tho man, after hi-t usual military salute. “John Green is dead, sir, and Mill Grooves wo expect as g"ing fast. There are six new cases.” “The deuce thorn are,” muttered Captain .Mount, springing from his seal and essaying to move to tho window. “’Graves did yon ever fool dizzy ?” “I don't know hut I have, sir, some time of my life,” replied tho man, with some hes itation. “1 believe that’s tho way tho lever commences, sir.” “flow do you know?” exclaimed Captain Mount, turning almost fiercely upon him. Tho orderly started back a pace, and well bo might be alarmed. The enptian’s eyes jvero red and heavy, and bis. faeo appeared swollen ; the look bl’ ferocity which lie-had assumed, added to the feverish purple of bis face, altered bis aspect completely'. But ob serving tho look of fixed surprise with which the man regarded him, lie said more soft!)- —“i don’t know but you’ro right, Graves —send my secretary here,and go for the doctor; tell him to bring a nurse along. Here, Graves, take tho key of Cameron’s cellar back to him—l—l {mvot it before.” Tho man obeyed, ‘syEjaiJ from tho room. Another mou&fb-ufjjfWt yoSlJg man entering moved towarqPtbo at which | tho Captain sat with Jjs head on hi?r hamis. “Captain Mount,” hesaid,‘And stood await ing a moment. “SR - —you sent for mo—Gap tain Mount -what aro your orders for me?” Tho young commander raised hia head” slowly and looked about him, as if bo did not comprehend. “O, yes ! I see—yon, you linvo come,” ho said at last, raising himself. “Alack, I'm afraid I’m going to be sick, very sick; want you to answer those letters immbdiutc ly “—pointing to tho pile that Uj- opened on his l ight band : “L wish you also to write 1 to my mother as I shall dictate, and then I shall bo ready to lie.-by If I should [ have tliis fever that is going the rounds, I shall depend upon yotr Mnvk, to'attend to my buisineas.

Two days after, Ciipluil||§lotinl's orderly came in great haste to identonant Cameron, with a sad story. The secretary had left, afraid of infection; tho nurse hersoif had been taken sick, and Capt. Mount was dan gerously ill, with no ono but himself to stay beside him. The commandant was away, the people outside were 100 nnicli frigMoried to assist, and ho did not know \\Tat ho should do. / “I must go there,”said Fred, with deeis ion. “Yes, wo must go there,” added his wife, meeting his glance. “Not you, Itoaily,” said Cameron. “Not you, Fred, without me,” replied Urn ily. ‘“I shan’t let you go,” said Cameron, in some alarm. . • “Wo are only wasting time,” was the an swer, as I'bnily put on her bonnet, “come, husband, you know when I will, I will s and solhoy walked oil’together.

Emily locked about at the beautiful furniture, undlisted, tho chairs in disorder, tho curtains unioop etl —a general air of neglect visiblo over all. Graves led thorn to tliecaptain's room.

Never were llioro more Inilldul friends, forever after, than Cameron and Mount. Tho latter was indofatigablo in his ex-ortions, lilfliclftu! obtained a captain's commission for tho lieutenant.
