Two armies covem! hill add plain
Where Rappahannock's waters
Ban deeply crimsoned with the stain
Of battle's recent slaughters.
The Summer clouds lay pitched like
I In mead ?f heavenly azwei
And each dread gun of the elements
Slept In its'hid embrasure.
The breeze so softly blew It made
STo 4rest leaf to quiver,
'And .the, .smoke of the random can
nonade Rolled jlowly from the river, i
And ndw where circling hills looked
, With ciuiuon.griuilv planted,
O'er listless 'camp'-and silent town .,
The golden smiseli slajitenV
When on the fervid air ttter earoe
. AstriUn, now rich, uowjiender,
The music seemed itselt aflame
With laj' departing spiendor-
A Federal bandy Which eve nd morn
Played pleasures brave ami nimble,
Had just struck up with flute and horn
' And lively elasBof oymbut. i I
Down flocked the soldiers to the bank
Till margined by its pebbles,
One wooded slwre was blue with
' "Yanks," : !" ' "'
And oae Was gray with "Bebel."
ffheft all was still ; and then the; band"
WUh movements light and triply,
Hade stream and forest,, hill and strand,
Kevrberabe with "Dixie." ...
The cohscious stream, with burnished
'.: glow '. I 111
Went proudly o'er it PWes, ,
But thrilled throughout iu oVepeat flow
Witta yelling of the- rebels.
Again a patfse, and then again i
The trumpet pealed soporous,
And Yaukee Doodle was the strain
; 'To Which the shore gave chorUs.
tffifc laughing rfppte shoreward new,
To kiss 6 le shiuing pebbles
Loud shrieked the crowding Boys in'
. Defiance to t he Kebejs-
And yet once more the bugle song
Above the stormy rlbt ;
No sh6ut upon the evening rang
There reigned a holy quiet.
The sad, lone stream its noiseless tread
Spread o'er the- glistening pebbles ;
AM silent now tlie Yankees stood,
All silent stood the Rebels :
For each responsive sou) had heard
That'-plalntivfc ritites appealing.
So deeply "Home, Sweet Home1' had
The hidden founts ofeeliug.
Of blue or gray, the soldier sees I
As by the wandof fairy,
,The pottage 'neath the live-oak trees,
The cottage by the prairie.
Or cold or warm his imtivq skies
Bend in their beauty o'er him ;
Seiiding tlie tear-mist ill his eyea
The dear ories stand before -Mm.
!As ldes,the h is after rain , , ., .

It will be readily Recalled by ttie
readers of the tHmee ibat after the
conviction. of Foster lor the murder
of Avery D. Putnam, the widow ot
the latter commenced a suit in the
Snperior Court te-eeovv tbflQO
damagoa against the 'Broadway
and Seventh""&venue Railroad
Company. The smt was based on
the theory that the company was
responsible, fbr the alleged neglect
of tlie conductor in not having put
Foster off the car whep hjk iptwi
cated condition became : apparent.
Ou the trial Mrs. Putnam recovered
judgment ; for the full amount
claimed, that being the limit per
mitted in case of death, and an ap
peal being taken "to the (General
Terra, tlve judgment was cfrijirmed
by a majority of the court, Chief
J ustice Harbour dissenting.! On an
sppeal hisim taken to the Court
of Appeal's,' tlie judgment of the
court below was reversed, Judge
Allen, who delivered the opinion
qf the eourt, holding, that the evi
dence produced on the trial failed
to show negligence on the jrt of
the wndnetor of the car. Inas
much as this decision has declared
against 1Mr,.,PutpW's right . to re
coyer, she- has now discontinued
her Suit, such discontipuance being
without costs to either party as
against the other. 2f. Y. Times,

but also a strange experience to most
telephaiits. ' They were lashed with
strong ropes, slung as far as practica

With three foot tackle, and lowered in
to the steamer's hold like a bale of
cotton. When in the hold, they were

to keep them from breaking loose.
The fear the animals suffered was the
only paiu , they underwent, ami by

their terror Watfvery manifest. Tears
trickled down their mild countenances,
and they roared, with dread more es
