Oyer's Cathartia Pillfi
BROWNVILLE; NEBRASKA, THURSDAY;
I saw the soldiers come to-day
From battle-fields afar ;
No conqnror rede before their way
On his triumphal car,
But captains, like themselves, on foot;
And banners sadly torn,"
All grandly eloquent, though mute,
In pride and glory borne.
Those canuers, soiled with dnst and smoke
And rent by shot and shell,
That through the serried phalanx broke,
what terrors they could tell I ' '
What tales of sudden pain and death
In every cannon's boom; .
When even th bravest held bis breath
And waited for bis doom.
By bands of steel those flags were wavd
Aleve the carnage dire,
Almost destroyed, yet always eared,
'Jlid battlo clouds and fire.
Though down at times, still np they rose
And kissed the breeze again,
Dread tokens to the rebel foes
Of trua and loy al men.
And here the true and loyal still
Those famous banners bear ;
The bugles wind, the fifes blow shrill,
And cIhbIi tho cymbals where,
With decimated ranks, they como,
And through the crowded street
March to tho beating of the drum
With firm though weary feet,
God bless the soldiers ! cry the folk,
Whose cheers of weloome swell ;
God bless the banners, black with smoke,
And torn by shot and shell !
They should be hung on sacred shrines,
Bab tiied with grateful tears,
And lire embalmed in poets' lines
Through all succeeding years.
No grander trophies could be brought
By patriot sire to son,
Of glorious battles nobly fought,
Brave deeds sublimely done.
And so, to-day, I chanoed with pride
And solemn joy to see,
Those remnants from the bloody tide
Squire Bailey had the biggest, and
best, and most docile mule in Marlin's
Bottom, and Marjin's Bottom is about the
biggest and best neighborhood on Green
brier River. Squire Bailgy was inclined
to be a Union man, and did not entirely
conceal his sentiments, notwithstanding
the presence cf' Floyd's -armT-'in the
vicinity. About the time of FUyd's "tu
multuous fight'' from that region, he was
very much in need of transportation, and,
according to the established usages among
seoesh, he proceeded to levy ton the
teams of the neichborinc: farmers. Of
course, a Union man, like Squire Bailey,
was not to escape ; but Squire Bailey,
taking time by the forelock, very quietly
one night removed to a safe locality all
bis live stock except his favcrite mule,
which he kept for hauling wood and going
to mill. This mule being apparently the
only support of a large and increasing
family, Squire Bailey fondly believed the
secesh would not be heartless enough to
rob him of it.
But Squire Bailey did not understand
Secesh. One fine morninc: alon? came
Quartermaster Blifie, accompanied by
half a dozen armed men, from Floyd's
army. Squire Bailey was standing at
his gate when Quartermaster Blifie ap
proached, and commenced a conversation
Good morning, Air. a ,
'Bailey,' suggested the Squire.
Yes, Bailey ; good morning Mr. Baii
Mornin,' said the Squire.
I understand, Mr. Bailey, that you
have a number of horses and mules that
you wish to dispose of to our gloiriouS
Mistake, sir,' said Bailey; 'I have
none to sell to anybody.'
But, Mr. Bailey, some gentleman in
formed me yesterday that you had quite
a number of horses and mules.'
If you'll believe your eyes, instead of
some gentleman,' Mr. Quartermaster,
you can see for yourself that I have noth
ing but that mule, in the dog pen there,
and that 1 can't rossiblv keen house
Ah! I see tie mule,' said Blifie, looi
ing through the cracks. 'You'd be ask
ing fifty for that mule, I s'pose. Well,
its a big price, but if you won't take less,
I'll have jo give it! Corporal, just write
& note for fifty dollars, payable in Florida
swamp lands, at twenty-five dollars an
acre, two years after our glorious Con
federacy achieves undispute'd independ
ence.' But, Mr. Blifie,' remonstrated the
Squire, 'if you take my mule, my family
will freeze to death, and starve to death,
loo, afore spring-. And if I had twenty
mules, I could not sell you' one sich as
that for less cor three huqored m' goldf;
'. ' V:'.
ONE AND INSEPARABLE, NOW AND FOREVER!"
but this one I can't spare at - no price.
We must all make sacrifices, Mr.
Bailey," for our glorious Confederacy. If
you only knew the sacrifices I have made,
Mr. Bailey. . The starving and freezing
of your wife and children are nothing
compared to them ; . but the glorious Con
federacy called, and my patriotism re
sponded to the call. Future generations
will remember and bless us, Mr, Eiiley,
and we will receive the everlasting grat
itude Of our glorious Confederacy. Think
of that, Mr. Bailey, think of that.'
Mr., Blifie, before his pointment.had
been utterly penniless, end ten times as
mean as be was poof. These qualifications

Mr. BHfie,' said the Squire, with much
feeling, for the. Lord's aake don't take
my last airthly support; Don't you see
my children all a cryin and a carryin on,
because they know they'll be in their
graves afore spring, if you rob me of
Rob!' exclaimed Mr. Blifie, fiercely,
Don't say 'rob' again, or I'll massacre
your whole nest of traitors. It's because
you're an enemy to our glorious Confed
eracy (bat you ere unwilling , to sell the
mule at a fair price. I oughtn't to pay
i-uch as you a cent, but I'm a generous
man, and yoii ought to be thankful to me.
Cerporal, fill up the note as I directed.'
Hold on a minit,' said the Squire. If
that paper is what you are goin' to give
me, don't spile it by writin' on it. The
blank paper might be of a little use to
me, but the writin' on it never could.'
'You're a cursed traitor to our glorious
Confederacy,' said Blifie, and he started
t lake the mule out of the pen. It was
hitched with a halter, and had a broad
cirsihgle around it. He unfastened it,
and without deigning , another vyord to
the 'enemy of his glorious Confederacy'
he was ofF with it to seek another farm
Squire Bailey looked sad as he turned
to go into the house, and, in the bitter
ness of -his feelings, so for forgot him
self as to 'd n the glorious Confede
Snugly concealed in Squire Bailey's
closet was Jack Phillips, the up-to-every-thing
Ohio s;out. As the Squire entered
the room he called out: "Come out Jack ;
they've gone, and the4 Infernal scoundrels
have stole my mule.'
I told you they would,' said Jack mak
ing his appearance, 'and if I hadn't in
formed you last night, they'd got all the
rest of 'em that yuu sent off.'
That's so Jack ; but I'd give a hun
dred dollars to have that mule back.'
Jack looked steadily at the fire for five
What did you say, Squire ?'
'I said I'd give a hundred dollars to get
that mule lack ; but I 'spose three hun
dred wouldn't get him.'
'I don't know,' said Jack, abstractedly,
and he looked in the fire for five minutes
more. Suddenly Jack brightened up, and
Give me the hundred dollars, Squire,
and I'll bring you your mule to-mbrrow
night, or your money shall be returned.'
The Squire looked amazed at Jack for
a. moment, but seeing he was in earnest,
put five double eagles in his hand. In a
few minutes Jack left the house, dressed
in linsey pants, a red wamus, and a coon
Next day hs Jack was walking leisure

bly brought about by himself, he met the
Quartermaster and his men. returning
with the proceeds of the expedition.
Jack smiled a happy smile, when he saw
Blifie behind the rest, leading Ihe Squire's
mule. He walked quietly along until he
came almost opposite the .Quartermaster,
when he darted suddenly off the side bf
the road, looking at the mule as if fright
Blasted scoundrel I'-exclaimed Jack.
Who! who is a blasted scoundred ?'
asked the Quartermaster.
Aint that the mule old Bailey had?'
asked Jack, moving still farther out of
his rpach; -
Yes ; but who did you say was a blast
ed scoundrel?' inquired the Quartermas
ter, very naturally taking all such com
pliments to himself. .
Why, old Bailey, and the mule too,
for that matter teplied Jack.
What's the natter with the rnule?
asked Blifie, whose former occupation had
not made him much of a judge cf lite
stock. ' ,
The matter ! Why he'll kill you afore
you get him home. You didn't pay the

Lord a mercy !' exclaimed Jack.
But what's the matter with hira V ask
ed Blifie, looking at the animal half
frightered. '. : .
Thatere mule,' replied Jack, 'has
kicked down, in his time, every panel of
fenca on old Bailey's place? You" found
him in a pen cf biglog3, didn't you?'
Yes; why?' inquired Blifie.
'And them ere legs are fastened by
tig iron bolts. Its ; the only thing that
would ever hold him. He has killed al
the rest of old Bailey's stock, and the
old rascal nas kept h:m on purpose to
swindle some fellow with.'
I ! heard,' said Blifie, that he used to
have more stock.' " "
.'ghat's what become of it,' said Jack
Didn't the children cry. and didn't old
Bailey whine and carry on about losin
his three -hundred dollar mule ?'
Yes, they did, at a great rate.'
I knowed it said Jack; 4The old
woman spanked them children, and sent
them out at the nick of time to help the
old rascal in his swindle. And to chea

'But he has seemed quiet enough since
I have been leading hira,' interposed
Her you any liquor about you ?' asked

That's what he follers you for, and its

That can't be so,' said the Quarter
Try him,' said Jack.; Tve jist got a
cool hundred dollars to give you if you'll
ride him a rod.'
By this time the Quartermaster's atten
dants had got out of sight, and his ava
ricious soul prompted him to make an
effort to get Jack's gold, thinking he
couldn't be. more than thrown off, any
The nio-ht before this meeting, Jack
had quietly stolen into the mules stable,
and carefully placed a leather dog-collar,
driven full of pointed sparrawbills, unde,r
the mules cirsingle, putting a piece ot
light leather between the points" of the
nails and the mules back, so that a mode
rate pressure would fores them through
into the animal's hide.
Ignorant of this, the greedy Quarter
master moved the mule to the bank, and
sprang on him just where the dogcollar
was placed. Just as he lit on the mule,
a boulder lit on his head, and he lit
sprawling in the mud. The mule, fran
tic with the pain of the nails still stick
ing in his back, sprang off the side of the
road, knocked down a dozen panels of
fence, and ran furiously across the field,
rearing, kicking, lajnngdewn and rolling
over, jumping up, about at a terrible rate.
I tcld you so,' said Jack coolly, as the
Quartermaster scrambled up, rubbing his
bruised head, and brushing at the mud on
his besmeared clothes.
He's worse than seven devels, aint
he ?' said the discomfited Quartermaster.
In course he is,? replied Jack.
What'll you give me for the chance bf
him ? usked the Quartermaster, as he
saw another string of fence go down bo
fore the maddened mule. ...
Don't know,' said, Jack; 'the halter
miht be worth a dollar or so, if I could
get close enough to shoot him before he
tears it all to shortstrings.'
'But where's rcy horse ?' asked the
Quartermaster, looking around iri aston
ishment. Don't know,' replied Jack ; 'the mule
gave him a hysie with his heels, jist as
he started, and haven't seed the boss
since.' ' .
'I wish the devil had old ' ' .
Hello! Quartermaster!' shouted. ,a
man in secesh uniform who was coming
up.thg rocd at the. tcp of his speed ; 'hel
lo ! Mr. Quartermaster, the enemy is
coming right dwn on our camp, and the
General wants you immediately. Our
army is mnning like all possest, and the
General wants you to help save the plun
der. Hurry back a3 hard as you can run,
or the enemy will be betwixed you and
Blifie waited to hear no more, but
broke for his camp like a quarter-horse.
When he arrived, and found that the
story was all false, terrible was the ven
geance ha vowed ; but before he had time
to execute hi3 threats, Fldyd'3 army was

It i hardly necessary to add that the
messenger who sent the Quartermaster
off so precipitately, was an associate of
Jack's and that Jack had turned; the
Quartermaster's horse with his head cp
the road, and by a sharp cut with a whip
sent him out of sight before Blifla recov
ered from his confusion.
Squire Bailey got his mule again, little
the worse for Jack's tricks, and he is as
quiet and useful an animal as there is in
all the country. The double eagles Jack
returned with the mule, taking the
Quartermaster's horse : as. compensation
for his services.

have an opportunity cf inquiring of the'
self-sacrificing patriot of the glorious
Confederacy whether it hurt much when
the mule kicked his hat off. Wilkes'
