We parted by the gate in June,
That soft and balmy mouth,
Beneath the sweetly beaming moon.
And with a wunth hunth suatli
Can't find a rhyme for nsonth.
Years were to pass ere we sltould meet,
A wide and yawning gulf
Divides me from my love so sweet, -And

I plunge these in tlie gulf.

Alas! my loving nymph.
Ob! I had loved her many years ;
I loved her for herself,
I loved her tor her tender tears
And also for her shelf dclt spelf
Mut let it go at pelf.
I sorrowfully wrung Iter hand,
While tears did fast escape ;
My angHish I con'.d not command,
LVnd feeling like a tape eape ape
Ah! must I make it ape ?
I gave her a last fond adieu,
Sweet pupil of Jove's school ;
I told her I would e'er be true.

An Incident of the War.
On the 12th day of Juno, ,1SG3, 1
witnessed a duel between a Capt. Jones,
commanding a federal scout, and Capt.
Fry, commanding a rebel scout, in
Green county, East Tennessee. These
two men had been fighting each other
for six months, with the fortunes ot
battle in favor of one aud then the other.
Their commands were camped on either
side ot Lick Creek, a lare and sluggish
stream, too deep to tord and too shal
low for a ferry boat ; but there a bridge
spanned the stream for tlieTcoriveiiieuce
of the traveling public. Each ot them
guarded this bridge, that communica
tion should go neither north or south,
as the railroad track had been broken
up mouths before. After fighting each
other for several months, and contesting
the point as tq which should hojd the
bridge, theysi.reed to fight a duel, the
conqueror to hold flic bridge undisputed
for the time being. Jones gave the
challenge, and Fry accepted The terms
were that they should ngnt Willi navy
pistols at twenty yards apart, deliber-
ately walking towards each oilier, and
firing until the last chamber of their
pistols was din-barged, un'ess one or
the otlier toll liefore all the discharges
were made. They chore their- seeonds.
and agreed upon a rebel surgeon (a-? be

A special correspondent ot the Figaro ,
who lately made a visit to Cliiselhurst,
gives the following details concerning
the Prince Imperial : , . s
Tlie Prince is of average height and
well looking; his teeth are( extremely
fine, aud his mouth like tliat ot the; Eni
presss, while the remainder of his face
resembles his father's. On the npper
lip a small brown mustache is beggin
oing to make its appearance! , His voice
is full, sonorous, aud well fitted to com
mand. To sum up,- the 1-ince has all
the grace of bis age j he Is gay, imagin
ative, and French. , .Showing me a
small piece of furniture iu which ail his
school exercises were placed,- be said :
"I preserve and regard then with plea
sure ; do you know why ? ' Because I
am enchanted at not having to do them
agaio." His daily labor is something
extrtordinary for one of bis ago. liais
ing at daybreak; he sets apart all the
morning fur study.: His. professors are
English, residing in "London lie is
now ot age to be admitted to -Oxford,
but is was jireferred that he should study
at Chiselliurst the higher branches of
education. After lunch the prince rides
out; he has three saddle liorses, and
among them Hems, the well known
sorrel ijf the Emperor. Sometimes, in
tine weather, lie walks out With' the
Empress. Two or three times a-week
lie goes to London to take ...lessons ; in
fencing, which is his greatest amuse
ment ; he also practices at home with
Count Bassano. Without being attach
ed to the British army, be occasionally
takes part iu tlie drill of a batlcry: of
artillery to which some ot bis Woolwich
comrades belong ; it is a fete for them
when he goes to Aldershot. . . If I stated
that the Prince said nothing about
l-'rance no one would believe me. But
as my instructions are. not :to. occupy
myself with politics, I am restrained
from giving an account ot our conversa-'
lion, which lasted nearly thirty-five
minutes; I can only' say that 'when I

I, perhaps,' felt a greater, interest in

from any danger of ! losing any' great

I had formed a warm attachment tor
the beautiful daughter of the proprietor
of theSilverwing. " I had Indeed be

not bestowed iu vain. - -

the case when reference "was made to
the disrepute her tatlicr's : house was
likely to fall into it the crimes-perpetrated
iu it were much, longer, continued.
Her emotion showed a sensitive nature,
and a filial affection which strengthened
I my admiration, and led "hie to vow oyer
and over again with solemn oath, "that
1 would not rest until tlie rogues -: had
been detected and punished. . ; ,
My first investigations developed the
fact that room 13 of the chamber was
the one in which the greater number of
robberies bad taken place; but this was
accounted tor from the fact that it was
the best room in the house, and tlie one
sually occupied by parties ot consider
able means. ' - ' ' '
The second development was, that as
the doors and windows' Were amply sup
plied with looks, bolts and ban, there
must be a confederate connected with the
house, tor these appeared to iu no way
interfere with the silent and successful
workings of the thieves.

the trigger. It missed fire and the bur
