After the Ball.
They sat and combed their beautiful hair,
Their longj bright tresses, one by one, Q
As they laughed and talked in their chamber
After the revel was done.
Idly they trdked of waltz and quadrille,
Idly they laughed, like other girls,
Who over tlQ fire, when all is still,
gomb out theiriaraids and curl3.
Robes of satitPand Brussels lace,
Knots of flowers, and ribbons, too,
Scattered about in every place ;
For the revel is through. q
And Maud and Madge in robes of white,

Stockingless, slipperless, sit in the night,
For the revel 13 done.
Sit and comb their beautiful hair
Those wonderful waves of brown and gold,
Tiil the fire is out inthe chamber there,
And the little bare feet are cold.
Then out of the gathering winter chill,
All out of the bitter St. Agnes weather.
While the)fire is out and the house is still,
Maud and Madge together
Maud and iladgre in robespf white,
The prettiest night-gowns under the sun,
Curtained away from the chilly night,
After the jevel was done,
Float along in a splendid dream,
To a golden gittern'stinkUng tune,
While a thousand lustres shimmering stream
In a palace's grandjsaloon.
Flashing of jewels and flutter of laces,
Tropical odors sweeter than musk,
.Men and women with beautiful faces,0
And eyes of tropical dusk;
And one face shining out like a star,
One face haunting the dreams of each,
And one voice sweeter than others are,
Breaking in silvery speech, q
Telling through lips of bearded bloom
An old, old story over again,
As down tbProyal bannere'3 room,
To the golden git tern's strain.
Two and two they dreamily walk,
While an unseen spirit walks beside,
And, all unheard in the lover's talk,
He claimeth one for his bride.
O, Maud and Madge, dream on together,
With never (T;paiig of jealous fear !
For, ere the bitter St. Agnes weather
Shall whiten another year,
Robed for the bridal and robed for the tomb,
Braided brown hair and golden tresspQ
There'll be only oae of you left for the bloom
Xf the bearded lips to press.
Only one for the bridal pearls,

Only one to blush through Ker curls
At the sight of a lover's face. 0 o

"Just my luck!" roared the Captain,
"dashing into the room like a tornado, and
banging the door behind him with a spite

he can dispense with my valuable services
even for a day. Confound his politeness!"

Ho excite yourself in such very warm

And Capt, Dale hurried aray, leaving

''I'm so much obliged to you, old fel
low!" he rvjteratc-d. "You'll tell Mary
just how it happened."
" All right !" I responded.
The whistle gave its unearthly yell--the
cars trembled as if a pulse of life was
thrilling through their iron links, and we
began to move. I was preparing to un
fold my newspaper, when all of a sudden
it dropped to the floor.
The prettiest creature I ever saw. Blue
eyed, with sunny hair, full of fleeting
golden lights, and a mouth like a little
red plum a genuine blonde, in a trim
traveling dress, whose olor I suppose
the milliners have some name or other for
it but I should call it the tint of a purple;
smoke-wreath. I took all these particu
lars a? one glance while she stood in the
Q-isle, apparently awaiting the motions of
a! stout young man who was reconnoiter
ing a little in advance.
" All full, Eey," he said, despondingly.
Then perceiving the vacant spot by my
side, his face lighted. O Q

" Certainly, sir by all means."
The stout young man wiped his fore
head and retreated to the emoking-car,
much relieved. Actually, the heartless
wretch seemed delighted to get rid of his
pretty companion and her traveling-bags,
butthen brothers never appreciate the
perfections of a sister!
How I wished I had devoted a little
more time to my toilet before starting. I
was painfully' conscious of my cravat be
ing carelessly tied,3 and the top button be
ing off my shirt bosom, every time the blue
eyes were timidly turned toward me.
Hang that washerwoman at the camp ! did
she pave her garden walks with mother-
of-pearl butt cms ? Andbesides, I was by
no means certain that my moustache had'
been properly waxed, or my hair parted
But I forgot these dreadful misgivings
after a while, and edged gradually into
conversation with ray blue-eyed neighbor.
What did w talk abtut? Why, Byron
and war, crochet work and the Sanitary
Commission, of course. What'else did
young people converse on in those days ?
And she told me of the flannel wTappers
she had made for theesoldiers, and I re
lated the particulars of the one battle I
had been concerned in ; and we laughed
and joked and sentimentalized together,
and, in short, became excellent friends.
"Phil-a-del-phy !" bawled the conductor
breaking ruthlessly into the midst of; a
quotation that I was: musically' jnurmur

" Is the New York train in ?"
" Yes, sir ; just this minute arrived'

" Well, sir, it you'll wait a minute, he'll

C)I stood back a few sccorfds, watchinir
the tired looking travelers pour from the,.
cars in sleepy confusion. At length I
caught siglft of the conductor, parrying a
crumpled baby in one hand) and a huge
calico-covered bandbox in flie other, while
behind himpame a ponderous female with
freckled countenance, and bonnet crushed
out of all semblanee to shape. Q

Alas, unkind fate ! there was my blue-eyed
compagnon du voyage convulsed with pret
tyrmalieious laughter at the plight I was in.
" I never imagined that you were a mar
ried man," said she, demurely. "Upon
my word, it is quite a privilege to witness
this sweet little episode of domestic affec
tion. Take care you'll drop the baby if
you hold it in that sort of way."
I set my teeth close together and strove
to wrench myself away from the cotton
gloved fingers of the woman who seemed
so determined to appropriate me.
" Let go of my cravat, madam V' I said
sharply, for she was clinging to me as the
veritable Old Man of the Sea might have
clung to Sinbad. " I am entirely at a loss
to imagine what you mean by thi-s singular
conduct. My name is not Hiram I am
not married, and I never set eyes on you
before to-night Let go I say, and take
your baby."0 q
The woman recoiled a step or two, and
gazed full in my face for the first time,
with a cry like a baffled tigress.
" Land o' Goshen !" she shrieked, " it
isn't Hiram, after all and the good-for-
nothing, shiftless, mean-spirited cur ain't
here to look after his own wife and child
ren. I do say for't," she articulated,
fiercely clenching her rmuscular fist, " I
knowed Hiram Peck was meaner'n a mus
cle shell, but I didn't s'pose he was mean
enough to leave me in the lurch this way."
She snatched the baby, broke away
from me, and rushed impetuously toward
the conductor, whose distant lantern
glanced among the platforms beyond.
" Conductor ! I say, conductor ! we've
woke the wrong passenger. That ere fel
ler ain't Hiram Peck no more'n you be,
and what on airth be I goin' to do ?" G y
All this time my blue-eyed divinity had
been smiling at my dilemma in the most
heartless manner ; arid I was glad to make
a diversion by pouncing upon the con
ductor and blowing him up for his absurd
mistake. He apologized, with a satirical
griii) on his face. "And now, sir," he
added, suddenly resuming the brisk busi
ness like manner of every day life, " I
think the rightrlady is fin the waiting;
room she came to meet Capt. Dale."
"That's the0 name," I answered,
A slender, lady-like thing was anxiously
waiting in the ladies apartment, with a
stout Irish nurse and two delicate infants
of two and three years of age. She sprang
forward with a bright agitated face, as she
caught a glimpse of my undress and gilt

And then she drew back disappointed
' Notexactly Kentwood, madam," I an
swered, " but his substitute."
And then, according Jto my promise, I
explained the circumstances of the case,
giving a highly colored account of my ad-
ventures, which made
Mrs. Dale laugh
" And now," I added, "if I get a carriage
and we make pretty good speed, wg, shall
reach the Washington depotin time for

cKentwood Dale was eagerly watching
for me, as the carriage drove into camp in

" I am so much obliged to you, Harry,"
he reiterated after he had joyously wel
comed the newcomers.
"So you ought to be," said I with a
groan. " It's the last expedition of the

I have never seen the blue-eyed syren

Correspondence of e New York World.
The works on the Palace of the osi
tion are now sufficiently advanced to ena
ble one to judgg)of the general aspect
which it will present in 1867. Until very
lately, a visit to the hamp de Mars has
been in the last degree unsatisfactory. A
view cf a vast Cyclopian establishment,
owned out by the incessant rains of
1st secSon, obtained throuffh the
interstics of wooden barcades, befiig the
only reward for the explorer after a tramp
over a saturated road ; order has now
grown out of chaos ; the edificeQis nearly
terminated, and whatever may be its
architectural defects , when tested accord
ing to the severe rules of art, the Exposi
tion building isa very imposing structure.
:yLe Constituiionel of yesterday dedicates
two columns to a resume of the works ac
complished, their destination, etc. The
article contains so much valuable informa
tion that I borrow from it for the benefit
of the readers of the World. " The plan of
the building isan immense rectangle
about J20 yards in length by 416 in
breadth, terminating at its two extremi
ties by half circles of 416 yards diameter,
the great central axis passes directly fronP
the Pont d'Jean to the Ecole Militaire, but
the monument is nearer the EOleMilitaire
than to the quay, in order to leave a
greater space for the park in Upfront.
The surface covered by the palace is about
40 acres. It is occupied by a series of
concentriG galleries, enclosing a garden of
rather more than an acre in extent. These
circular galleries are cut by radiating
galleries from the centre to the outer en
trances. This disposition allows the va
rious production o be classed by similar
groups and by nationalities. In passing
through the circular galleries 1G incum
ber the visitor-will have under his eye
all r the products of the same class, while
in each of the 16 radiating galleries he
will be able to take in the entire exposi
tion of a nation. The building is entirely
level (or, as we would sav in America,
has but one storv), and is constructed en
tirely of cast and wrought) Iron, with the
exception ofthe outer walls of the central
garden, which are of masonry. The roof
ing i3 almost entirely composed of
wrought iron, only a small part of the
building being covered with zinc. Oil en
tering any one of the 16 doors Correspond
ing with the radiatinggalleries, the visitor
will find himself vmder a covered walk of
about 25 feet in width and a mile arxmnd,
bordering the first gallery of products (30
feet wide) consisting (if articles of food of
all classes and inall degrees of prepara
tion consequently a (reserved space for
restaurants of alPnations. The next gal
leryjjjntended for machines, is about 110
feetHvide. and is elevated some feet alcove
all the others. From without this gallery
conceals the entire interior of the paiace.
The roof of this part of the building is
supported by iron pillars with open arches.
Onecan imagine the effect of this part of
the building by supposing the Boulevard
Sebastopol for American comprehension
say Pennsylvania avenue- built tip with
six-story white stone buildings, covered a
the height of the roofs of the houses by an
iron vaulfrwb.ose summit should rise above
the chimneys. This isthe most remarka
ble part of the new construction. Here
exhibitors are now athe work of installa
tion. The succeeding galleries, 73 feet in
width, are for mineral products, clothing,
house-building, and material or thelib
eral arts. Finally, the two galleries which
circumscribe tfe garden have, the first 50
feet in width andbout half a mile in cir
cumference : the second, farthest from the
garden, is but 2o feet wde. The first is
reserved for an exposition of the fine arts,
the second for the history of labor (in
struments of the age of stone, etc.) The
garden itself is bordered bya covered
promenade about 20 feet wide.
"The edifice is perfectly lighted. Light
enters everywhere in profusion. The ma
chine gallery has 2 GO immenseCsvmdoWjS,
22 feet high by 13 wide. The interview
galleries1 are lighted by square windows
