Mark hoped that the preparations the
Confederates were waking for the ex­
pected move would cause them to forget
him. He was not destined to be so for­
tunate. The second day after his cap­
ture he was taken before a court martial
held iu a house occupied by the staff de­
partment, to be tried on the charge of
being a spy.
The court was assembled aud ready to
proceed with the case. An officer had
been detailed to defeud the prisoner, but
he bad not arrived and tho court waited.
Presently a clatter of horse's hoois was
heard outside. It stopped before the
door of the house, and in another mo­
ment Mark's counsel entered the room.
Mark looked at him with astonish­
ment. In the tall, straight soldier, with
black hair aud eyes, mustache and
goatee, bearing about him that some­
thing which indicates “to the manor
born," he recognized the officer who had
called at the Fains' on the morning he
had left them—Captain Cameron Fitz
As soon os he entered he beckoned the
prisoner to follow him to a corner of the
room apart from the others for consulta­
tion. It was not a convenient place for
such an important interview, but one
charged with being a spy was uot likely
to get many favors, and the exigencies
of the case did not admit of aught ex­
cept the bare forms of justice.
“Will you give me your confidenco,
guy man, or shall 1 proceed at random?”
"At random.”
“If you think it best to trust me, 1
givo you tho word of a Virginia gentle­
man that I will not betray you, and 1
will do all I can for you. 1 am a Fitz
He said this unconscious of how it
would sound to a northerner. To him
to be a Fitz Hugh was to be incapable
of a dishonorable act. Mark understood
him perfectly; indeed his counsel in­
spired him with every confidence.
“I would explain everything to you,
captain, but my secret is not all my own.
I would be perfectly willing to trust my
fate in your hands if 1 could honorably
do so. You will doubtless fail in your
defense, but I thank you for tho effort
you will make.”
The trial was of brief duration. The
soldiers in whose company Mark was
taken were called and testified to his
having masqueraded as a staff officer.
Knowing now that he was probably a
Union spy, they would have shielded
him, but they had already given up the
secret. Mark was asked where he lived.
He had entered bis namo at the hotel
as coming from Jasper, so ho gave that
place as his residence, but when asked
what county Jasper was in ho could not
tell. Tho maps he had studied, being
military maps, did not give the coun­
ties. Then some Tennesseo soldiers were
brought in—the town swarmed with
them—who testified that they lived at
Jasper and had never eeen tho prisoner
there. The closing evidence against
Mark was given by the recruiting officer
with whom lie had promised to enlist.
Hearing that a spy had been taken, and
suspecting it might lie jiis promised re­
cruit, he went to the courtroom and
there recognized the prisoner. His tes­
timony was sufficient. The court had
made up its mind before tho prisoner's
counsel had said a word.
Captain Fitz Hugh seemed distressed
at not being able to bring forth any evi­
dence in behalf of the prisoner. When
he arose to speak in Mark’s defense the
court listened to him with marked at­
tention and respect—indeed they were
as favorably impressed with the ac­
cused's counsel as they were unfavor­
ably disposed toward the accused. The
captain was obliged to content himself
with warning the court against convict­
ing a man of being a spy because bis
identity was not satisfactorily explained
and on circumstantial evidence. He
asked that the prisoner might have more
time than had been given him in which
to gather evidence in his behalf.
The court denied this request and pro­
ceeded with a verdict. In forty minutes
after Mark entered the courtroom ho was
found guilty of being a spy.
“Have you anything to say why the
sentence of the court should not be passed
upon 7011?*
“No, sir.”
Captain Fitz Hugh interposed once
more for delay.
“I would suggest,” be said, “that inas­
much as some explanation may come to
hand bearing on the case the court fix
my client's punishment to take place on
a day not nearer than a week from to­
“I had intended to fix it for to­
morrow morning at sunrise,” said the
president, "but in deference to the
prisoner's counsel I will compromise
with him midway between a week, as
he desires, and tomorrrow, or allowing
three days. The sentence of the court is
that the prisoner be hanged by the nock
until he is dead on the twenty-seventh
day of August, eighteen hundred and
sixty-two, or three days from today.”
Before Mark was led out of the court­
room his counsel approached him. Con­
sidering the prejndice against the pris­
oner, another man would have suffered
him to go without a word. Not so Cap­
tain Fitz Hugh. He strode up to Mark,
the officers and soldiers present making
a way for him, leaving him alone with
the prisoner by withdrawing to nnother
part of the room, and extended his hand.
“One thing is plain to me.” he said,
"whoever you are, you are a gentleman,
and I believe you have sacrificed your
life to yonr sense of duty. I am sorry
that yon did not trust me with your se­
cret. Then I might have done something
for you. As it is, I have done nothing."
“it would have availed nothing,” said
Mark. “You have done all you could
under any circumstances. Besides, had
I told you who I am, you might have
felt it your bounden duty to yonr cause
to make known the facts.”
“Never,” said Fitz Hugh proudly. "1

The air was so fresh; the sun was so

such a companionable look in them that
Souri was very liappy.
Suddenly there came to her a quick
sinking away from the pleasurable sen­
sation. A sense of danger rushed in to
take its place. Surely something hor­
rible was about to happen.
In a moment she heard the clatter of
horse's hoofs coming at a gallop. Look­
ing up the road, of which she had a
view from the window, she saw a liorse
covered with foam tearing toward her,
with a negro Loy on his bare back. In
a moment the rider was at the fence aud
had reined in his horse. Wild with
haste and excitement, seeing Souri at
the window, he called:
"Am dis Slack's place?”
“Whar Souri Slack?"
The boy held up a red handkerchief,
and then jumping off his horse threw
the reins over a picket in the fence, which
he vaulted, and running up to the win­
dow poked the handkerchief at her.
Souri at once recognised the handker­
chief she had given Mark. Sewed on to
a corner she noticed a piece of dirty cot-
cloth on which some one had written
with a pen in blotted letters:

"Ole nigger what leabe hit.”
“What’d he say?”
“Nuffen." And the boy pointed to
the corner as if that was sufficient ex­
planation for any one.
Souri could not read what was written
there, but she knew Mark had been cap­
tured, and it was fair to suppose that he
was at or near Chattanooga.

When the good Sir Thomas Gresham
in tlie sixteenth century promulgated
tine principle that bail money always
drives the good from circulation it re­
ceived small recognition from his own
or the succeeding generation; but its at­
tempted violation by the quackeries of
monetary legislation
brought its own penalty. At length,
however, the world came to recognize
that the principal which Sir Thomas
Gresham modestly advanced was an
immutable law and his own name has
appropriately been given it.
Two great American liners are being
built at Philadelphia. At present the
ships are known as No. 277 and No. 278
but it is understood that the names
which will soon supersede the numbers
have already been selected. The first
of the two steamers launched will be
christened Minneapolis and the other
is,*it is stated, to be named after one of
the larger cities in the far west. Then
will be constructed, in the same yards,
two other monster passenger ships,large
as tlie new boats ef the Cunard line and
as fine in every respect.
