Ciikav Pt.rusL'ttB. Did you ever study
the cheapness of some pleasures ? nsk some
excellent writer. Do you know how little
it takes to make a multitude happy t Such
trifles uru penny, u word, or a smile, do
tho work. There ure two or three boys
passing ulong-rgivo them each a chestnut,
mid how smiling they look ? they will not
hu cross for some time. A poor widow
lives in the neighborhood, who is the mother
of a half dozen children ; send them half a
peek of sweet apples, mul Ihey will be hap
py. A child hus lost his arrow the world
to him nnd ho mourns sadly ; help him
find ii. or make him another, and how
quickly will thu sunshine play upon his so
ber face. A boy has as much its he can do
lo pile up a load or wood : assist him a few
moments, or speak a peasant word to him,
and he forgets his toil, nnd works away
without minding it. Your upprcnlicu hus
broke a mug. or cut the vest too large, or
slightly injured n piece of work. Say, "you
scoundrel," and he feels misoruhk ; but re
mark, " I am sorry" nnd hu will try to do
butter. You employ n man pay him
cheerfully, and speak n pleasant word to
him, and ho leuvcs your house witli a con
tented heart, to light up his own hearth
with pmiles of gladness. As you pas?
alone the street, you meet a Ihmiliar face
say, "Good morning," ns though you
felt huppy, ann it will work udmirably in
tho heart or yonr neighbor. Pleasure U
cheap tVho will not Jjeslow it liberally?
Jf there nro smiles, sunshino und llowuro
nil nlmnt ns, let us not grasp -them in u
misers list ami lock them up in our hearts.
No. Rather let us take them and scatter
them about us, in the cot of tho window,
among tho groups of children in tho
erowded market where men of business
congregate, in our families, nnd everywhere.
Wo can make tho wietclied happy, the
discontented cheerful, tho afllicled resigned,
at un exceedingly icheap rule. Wiio will
refuse to-do it.?

and you can distinguish the spires of thu
Court House nnd two or three chrhes.
Tho rebels had n signal station oo tin
former when wu came, but our hIicIIb made
it too warm for them, and they withdrew.
The morliirs arc playing to-night, nnd they
arc well win ih seeing. We watch a mo
ment, nnd in thu direction ol Yoting'.s
Point, beyond the city, suddenly up shoots
n flash of light, nod in u moment tho pou
dermis shell, with its fn.-c glowing und
sparkling, rires slowly from behind the
bluff; up, up it goes, ns though mounting
to the zenith ; over it comes towards u.
down through its llight trajectory into the
oily, and explodes with it siiock that jars
the ground for miles There uro women
and tender children where those shells falls
but war is war Sherman's eight-inch
monsters are grumbling fur nwuy oil th
right. Nearer, McPhersonV, too, are
playing wu can even see tho cnunnnior
beside them ut each flash. Ours will bit
open at midnight ; llien there will be mns
iu to your hearts content. Meanwhile let
us go to thu front. A hundred yards to
thu right of whom wo are now we enter u
deep trench. Following this ns it winds
down around the hill wo reach thu opening
of it cave or mine. The air within is dump
nnd close, like that of a vault. CandleM
are burning dimly nt intervals, nnd we,
hear thu hum of voices f.tr within nnd out
or sight. Wi proceed und presently inert
two men carrying a barrow of earth, for
our boys an ut work night nod day. Thi
is thu main approach on this part of th
line. Finally wo reach tho moonlight
again, and emerge into a wide deep trench,
cut across thu line f the coverrd wuy.
This is open and filled with troops, who
prottet tho working party. A heavv
parapet of cotton bales und earth is built
k the fide towards tho enemy, nnd we
must mount them lo look over. We ant
now within sociable distance of the chival
ry. Thoso iii"!! lying on the ground twen
ty or thirty yards from us tire our boys,

with tho bright musket which glistens no.
it few steps beyond, is u lieb." long-haircil
nnd hot-blooded, one of Willi's famous
Texas Iegion n bull dog to fight, you
may be sure. Now jump down mid enter
tho mouth of the other mine, winch lends
toward the salient of the enemy's works.
Stumbling along wu reach thu end, where
the men ate digging. The candle burns
very dimly, the air is almost stilling.
Never wind ; let m watch theut. See
tlmt slender, bright-looking fellow twing
ing the pick. Grrr.t beaded drop of per
spiration trickle down his face ; there is
not a dry thread in his tnarso gray fihirts
but no mutter, the pick swings, und nt
inch stroke slices down sis inches of th
tough subsoil of tho Mississippi That
fellow was " Jim," once a tender-handed,
smooth-faced, nice young man. whoso live

soro trial to his worthy governor. Jltr.
Fays that he used to wear gloves and store
cloths, und that the girls called him good
looking ; but that's played out now . he U
going for Uncle Sam. Hut wo return to
tho fresh air. L'tok over tho parapet
again toward the turret, where wu caw the.
rebel picket. Do you r.eo tho little gray
mounds which eover tho hill side w Illicit

few Fqnaro rods. Ah, my friend, thia is
sacred ground you uro looking upon.
Theru our boys charged-; thero they wore
slain in heaps ; but they pressed tin and
leaped into tho ditch. They climbed tho
parapet nnd rolled back into eternity.
Others followed them.'; their Hug was plant
ed, nnd they sprang over to meet their cer
tain death. An hour passed, und ono re
lumed. Tho rest were dead.
