The following ' reraarloible article

The name or the author , we have , been
unable to learn. . It ii. doubtless a fancy

One day, a short time ago,' while sil
ling in a hotel in Richmond, Va., a total !
stronger to evary one in the city, I took
up a dally peper for the purpose of pass
ing nway an idle hour ; tor further com
fort, I seated mysef in the recess of a
bay window, and was thus wholly hid
den from the view of anyone who might
chance to enter the room. I was the only
solitary .occupant of the room, and had
just become interested in the latest news,
when I heard the dopr open, and the foot- i
steps of two persons approaching. They
seemed to be confidentially talking to-
geiher, and I thought it my duty to make
my presence known by some sign, so that
I might not hear anything not intented
for Vny ears, but upon peering into the
room, imagine my surprise, when I re
cognrze the occupants as JefFDavisand
H traitor friend, Toombs, of Georgia.
I i.v-..ii!r;i no longer, hui settled hack in
'"t. and ha.ni every energy to listen
i ' " -riVtrsition, which was carried
in -x ijvv tone.
'i.Jt,' oaid Toombs, .'-Mr. Daris, you
must not give way.,. to the vagaries of
your brain. Come, tell me that wonder
ful .dream tf yours, iand my word tc-r it.
you will feel better after its recital.'
Davis, rising frojai his eat, turntd the
key in the door, and taking his seat close
y Toojiib?; gave the following version
of the dreah ika isuirbed him. Said
f "I had party of friends to supper last
night, who prolonged their visit to a late
liour. 1 ate heartily during the evening,
ani experienced a stranger feeling, of
heaviness before retiring. My'. room,
yoC Jtn'ow is wtll supplied with windows,
and the nig&t ibfing a splendid onej I lay
,goo my back, gaziug on ihe heavens,
sparkling as it were, with diamonds, and
ruminating on the destiny of the Confed
eracy. How long I continued thus, 1
know not, but stealing on my senses, as
it appeared to m e,' instantly cune clearer
perceptions of our caue from the fckCgin
qicg. -.tht insdf in the taineruom
.where vve met to perfect 'ouf ' "plans"! yj--the'
desjir uciion of this great- Republic.
I thought you and Breckinridge were
there, and 1 seemed io' Jive over again
the cUe.;flg "scenes which were enacted
in Congress, and I was startled from the
contemplation by a low deep voice by my
pillow, saying; 'Jefferson Davis ! Jeffer
son Davis ! This was the beginning' I
started and looked, around to see who it
was that fpoke in xhose awful tones," and
a cold chill. of horror crept over me, as I
saw a diro, fha"dowy figure disappear in
the distance. : Presently my gaze became
fixed! and before rae- p3?sed.,the whole
Southern land, one State after; another;
Maryland, heaving and-tcssing upon the
waves. of the ocean, doubting "which way
to -plunder; --Virginia had a ttnilling ex-
terior, but themost deadly and damning
hale rankle'd5 -iher heart; Georgia, crazy
with the enormous weight of her sins and
passions, acxious to give them vent in
the warm blood of the Northern heart,
and so passed they all, one after another
and the last appearing still ;mre hellish
than the first. Wo sooner w$3 those
ended, than' by a chang? of my position,
I imagined myself standing on the top of
Bunker Hill, and once more the panora
ma of the State are preser.ttd before me.
This time it was the North. But why
enter into the details of this vision? fori
saw them in all their beauty of the free
system; tha chinlren on, their way to
school, the, old people . to their noon-day
prayer-meejing ; the farmer iu the field,
and the scholar at. his study. All this
passed rapidly before me, and I felt a
fire m my heart that to my disorJered
brafji threatened to consume me entirely.
Again the scene changed., and I found
myself on a height overlooking Charles
ton Harbor. At that moment, the Star
of the West' -as attempting ; "tocarry pro-;
visions to the starving, garrisons, within.
I saw ihe shot fired .forcing her to return,
and my heart sank within -me', as I heard
that deep solemn voice beside me ; Jef
ferson Davis, this is your preparation for
the halter. . '
Again, I saw another fleet sail to the
relief of Sumter, saw the bombardment
and its fall. Qnce jpore J imagined my
self standing on the '.summit of Bunker
Hill, and the jyhols North Jay spread at
my feet, qpd my God ! tfcs change! that
had come ever iho lawj .yfrerp froni
this very, spot, and extended Qui to its
arthest corner, there was a. hurrying to
and fro, men taking up their ' muskets,
and all tending to one point Washing
ton. ' My eyea fairly blazed from my
head, when from the blue ky. above me,
I heard once again that mysterious voice
ringing in my- tars ; -'Jiifers'on1 Davis !
Jefferson Davjs J behbfd the armed legions
of the North ; see the misery and desola
tion that fallows. '---Jtffersou- pi!'i; f liis
is your work.". , 3 : 1
vMy life trembled, as I heard these
words uttered in these awful tones. My
brain reeled, and I staggered, and fell
headlong from my position."
At- ihis point, Jeff, stoper talking,
and wiped the cold 'sweat from his brow.
Toombs remarked that this was a most
remarkable dream, most wonderful, when
Jeff., resuming, said : : .i :
"I thought my tali wa? not iuiden
but that I occupied tome morihs in de-
scents, and during that time I could see'
the great anacouJa tighening its folds
around the jConftderacy.and I felt certain
that all was lost, and that we should be
crushed in our common destruction. J
saw the capture of Ft. Henry and Donel;
son ; and a thrill of horror crept over me,
as I saw the traitor to the South, Floyed,
steal away in the darkness of the night,
leaving the rest to destruction. Along
the line I saw 'our' armies possessed of
t . . r v '
fearful .diead", flying from Nashyille and
Coiunibus-i-HW the battle of Pea Ridge,
and the bloody hid of Shilch, and al
most in the twinkle if an eye' the Army
of the Potomac, in aJi . its mighty pro
portions, appeared before me, and I felt
that all was lot. Ajiaiu the solemn voice
rang iu my ears ; Jeffersen Davis ! Jef
ferson Davis! thy dobm is sealed. No
sooner were Xle'words juttercd, than in
the distance I heard an unearthly shout
ing and yelling, that grated on uiy feel
ings like, red-hot iron' jdrawii:''ihio'ughf
every part of niy body. 'Soon there came
insight what i found to. be. a ody-guard
of 'imps, '.sent from the bottomless pit to
bring cue to Judgment..-. ' Placing them
selves around and under my body, I de
scended rapidly toward Hadesl Soon we
found cursflves upon a oarren .rock, ,in
the most deosolate place for you to;imag
ine. Stepping round ah anslei it disclos-
ed to my view a wide1 crtfiftce,1' and all;. The ' wife cf Peytdci Lang Ipy of pulton
around is grew the most : beautiful flow
er&, and I seamed to hear the mOst teau
'ifal sounds imnjinable. One of my
guards here spoke, and said, 'Child of
mortaity, follaw !
He led the way; and
i-foliaA'.ed closely. It was not long Jje-1
for ihe beau'.v'of the . entrance passed
away, and all became dreary, dark and
desolate, Traveling, what'seemed to me
a great distance, we at last came to a
great iron jdoor, ; the nails upon which
seemed to sparkle and hjaze with intense
heat withinl fleie sat an elderly imp as
door-keeper, and by his side wafc-a'very

had 1 uttered . my name, than the imps,
with a horrible, ntve-to-be-forgotten
screaming, sprang to distant corner,
and stood staring with huing eye-la!ls,
that seemed to loathe me wiih terribb
bathing I tried to approach; them, but
they would not permit it, seaming fear
ful of any contact r wiih me. . Horror
stricken and amazed at,, the conduct of
those who I thought would be my friends,
I returned to the door, which I now found
open. No sooner had I entered , than the
door closed .. witha" heavy tcund, and I
heard rolling in the distance my name,
as I was introduced to the damned. On
ward and onward I found myself travel
ling, and ever and anon, as I passed by
some poor wretch, writhing in all the
misery of the lost, I would turn my eyes
to catch one look of symathy one glance
of commiseration, for ; rny fate but in
viin. All seemed lu took at me with a
dreadful horror, and pointed their burni
ing fingers of scorn asI passed, whisper?
in?; io each . otbud.Hell: ia disgraced !'
Hurrying fasl.pu, I fund'mj'self before
an open door, having, printed thereon In
letters of fire, the words,; 'Enter, and re
ceive thy doom!' I entered, and there
in the middle of a large apartment was
raised a throne of living fire, andupol it
sat the most awful, being. I ever beheld.
On his head , was arcrown of living ccr
pion?, and. around bis, neck and coiled in
his hpsora was the deadly rattle-snake.
I had but a short lime; Jo look, when in
a voice pf, thunder he , said, 'Who art
thu?'. and through, Mhe long aruhes
which had passed,- came ihe answer,
Jefferson :: Pa? is! Hell is disgraced I
Cast him out JVj.Transfjxed with horror,
the Devil seemen to face upon me, aod
in a voice of, awfui depth Tand hardness,
said to me ,.Jefferson Davis, I who now
sit here, jailor of the damned,. ambitious
to be soiijething greater than the great
est, .rebel, and , was cast troth, and the
seqieccp, was 'passed, upon r;ie iago'iowp

iuibuity of the world, uutiha greater than

I, tempted, but iavain, until to-day, you
appear before me loaded down with crime
that I shudder at,'as;J;se e lyou. . Jeffer

and crown.' As h; tittered these awful
words, my blood seemed xo freeze in my
vairis, and the mos h;rritle wail of ago
ny arose from the myriads of the. damned,
and wah a &hout I awokei-. trembling; in
every hnb,,cold pergpirationall over me,
and bioad daylight. -streaming through
my window. , The scene. reemed &o real
and my doom so prophetic, that it preys
upon me like a conker, and I find myself
unable to cast it off."
'. Davis here ceased speaking, and- they
both arose, and unlocking the.door, piss
d out ; as they did so, Tcaught a glimpse
of them, and nearer till the day of my
death, shall I forget the hoggard, care
