A SAMPLE OF S0CIALIS3I.
It was a fev days after Generals
Hanks and Grant had phut up the rebel
shops at Port Hudson and Vicksburg, and
opened the Mississippi all the wy
through, that seven of us shoulder-straps
four in the land and three in the naral
service got permission all at the same
times to run up stream, or anywhere else
we pleased, so we didn't run within the
rebel lines, and recuperate for six weeks.
We had all worked long1 and faithfully
down their in the low country, ?cd fairly
parnen our turlougris, -
It was something just a tiifla singular
that'we were' all intimately acquainted
with each other, ail rnf Tried men,' and
tiiM ( lie seven wives of the seven of us
t-h ulJ have all arrived, in New Orh-ans
only tue day before we oivur furloughs,
and were all quartered together at thv;
Veranda, and got up to the hour of our
meeting at the Exchange, when we
agreed to all go tip the river ia company,
there wasn't of the number a single soul
who hod seen his wife since her arrival.
Without regard to rank or order, the
list in the male line reades asfollo.vs:
Lieut. Harry C.Jones, U. S. N., Col.
George Marshall, th Ohio Infaniry,
Capt. WalierHamilton, ih New York,
Lieut. Col.Fred.Orton, th Pennsylvania
Cavalry, George Coif man, pilot Major
John P. Florence. th Connecticut Ar
tillery, Dick Maline, U. S. N.
There we were, of all arms and from
all sections of universal Uniondom, hus
tled to gether by accidem, and all bound
up stream by the same steamer, and that
steamer, the big new, first-class clipper
Western World of Pittsburg, Captain
Henry Norton, which we had ascertained
was going to shove cfTtrora the levee a:t
six o'clock P. M.
Our first duty was to cut over to the
Veranda and introduce ourselves to our
wives, and then introduced our compan
ions to ihem all round and this having
beeu accompliidied, we pitched upon Col.
Ortonasour best pack-horse and most
finished ladies' man of the mob, to wait
on the dimity down aboard the steamer,
secure staterooms, stow away luggage,
and get everything and everybody all snug
while the remainder of us trotted abou
town to finish qp forty unfinished little
duties, and procure fifty little trifles for
geceral comfort, the most important
among1 which were several dozen bottles
in saw dust, ar.d divers overgrown decan
ters in willow jackets.
We were as busy all day with our du
ties as Orton must have been wkh his,
tut we got through with all, and on board
with our own various wares and wives
in gocd time, making square calculations
to 1 e'.e another that night on board the
Western World. And we did, only it
was a confounded queer time the last end
WTe were a trifle near sighted, I think,
by the time we pot onboard, fifteen min
utes before the steamer tho ved off from
the levee, but we could rce well epough
when Orton piloted us around to our wives
nr.d quarters alaft the wheel house, that
there vas a premise cf comfort and ccn
veiiietce nbcut cvr rccom.-i.odations.
Su!c rocms fitted up l.ke bridal cham
bers, toilet fixtures, sofas, rosewood rock
er?, and(berths wide enough for two we
njticed Uiat pariiulary and then there
was a new kink to us in the designation
of our lodgings. Instead of being num
bered, as is usual, or lettered, as we had
sometimes seen the thing done, there was
a fancy glass plate up over each state
room door, with the name of some one of
our American immortals on itMa gilt let
tersas Clay, W'ebster, Jackson, etc.
As our programme was to have one
part of that jolly time of ours out in the
social ball that night, wfcnight possibly
forget that we had wive? waiting for as
as many a better and" worse man than we
were, have dpne, so we set about investi
gating the possibilities of entering our
lodgings without disturbing our wives, in
case they , should happen to be turned in
when we came homa.
All right, admirable, coald n't be im
proved, dead latches to the locks, so that
our wives could fasten themselve3 in. an d
everybody but their husbands out. Cap
ital idea, that. "Give us our keys, Col
onel, while We think of it. .And Orton,
who had the brasa talismans in his pock
el, distributed them very carefully.stuJy
ins a little over eaca medal attached to
the keys, to be sure he wasYorre'ct, serv
ing out to us Clinton, Burcside, Gov.
Curtin, &c , which we pocketed quite as
carefully against the time of need.
Now the first gtiess would naturally
be, that separated from five to twenty
months from our wives as we had been,
our first devotion would have been paid
to them. But that was just the' reason
why Ve chose to spend awhile" in the
social hall first.
There were at l.-asi forty fellow shbiil-
der-straps on board who knew all. the
matrimonial ropes, and I suppose a hund
red more b on. compactions, and if we had
ruthed in to hugging and kissing, and
taken to locking ourselves into our room's
the first thing" thunder ! they'd have

It was a capital plea to put cur wives cn,
So afetr tea we went forward, got
hiippy,'and kept ori growin? hazier, till
about ten o'clock, when CJk Orton made

didn't feet as well as he 'might. Would
we let him off?' He wanted to turn in.
Yes, we would that. He was a dry
chip, anyhow not much ginger in him.
Go on, Colonel go and turn in'. So on
went Col. Orton, and off we went on oar
jubilee tack agin".
At length, a little before twelve o
clo:k, we voted to square away and run
down for Blanket Bay, and off we went,
ma kit g short tacks, with a fair wind on
the passage, down the long saloon, going
afoul of every craft we fell m with wheth
er at anchor or under weigh, until at last,
we got into the latitude of the glass
statesmen and generals, when we hove
to and hunted up latch-keys.
All right. We could read plain enough
yet the great gold letters on the glass
and the little brass letters on the key tal,
"Here you are General Taylor

"And I am to sail under Burnside,"
said Dick Marline, holding up his latch
key closer to the light, to make sure he
was right in the tally.
"Well, I'm blest beautiful if I ain't

prowled Georje Coleman. .Vlljwevjr,
I don't care a cuss who's over me, so
long as Mary lays alongside. AH right,
S that leaves me General Scott,"
said Captain Hamilton; taking a near
sighted look at his latch Ley.

"Yes let's go softly," everybody re
spor ded ; ar.d so we went like burglars to
our respective key-hobs, and let ourselves
in to. stiil y'cu couldn't have heard a click
ora crack of a single d'r.-
I was inside in the dark, and hauling
away al fny-starboard boot, when lit1 lr
dimity woke'up about half way, p-jrout
her hand sleepily like. rd- laying it on
my port leg by guess, said in & sbrt cf
"Ah, that you, hutband ? WTbat kept
you away so long.''
"S-s-s-sh'my deaf," I. whispered.
Don't talk so loud. There's the Major
in the next room, and there's only an
inch pine wall between U3. I'll tell you
all about it when I get into bed."
"That'll do ; now hurry, dear, I want
"Yes, honey, I'm a coming."
Having unbent every rag of canvas,
stripped to girtline, I ben: down over the
side of the berth, tasted once of little
Josey's lips, wife laid back the cover in
vitingly, and Dick went over the bac k
side and into bed at the first invitation.
Josey and I had just laid our figure heads
together and ourarmsso lovingly around
each other, when our attention ga3 sud
denly called to something going on in
the next siate-roora aft, something that
directly began to sound very like a squall.
A female voice opened the duet:
"Why, Dick, my dear where's your

Major Florence inquired.
"Dick my Dick O, mercy on me !"
"That's, my husband " chrrped my
bedfellow, starting up. "Who are you
in my bed ?"
"That's my Josey in bed with Major
Florence, Who in blazes are you, and
whU the deuce are you doir:g in Geen

who my partner was.
"Hands off, sir! O dear e-e-.eech.

piped Josey Marline ; and ju.-t then there
was a hurrah from the other side of the
ship, and the state-room next aft from
General Burnside, and out we came star
board and port, tangled ioio an everlast
ing snarl, out into the bread glare of thn
cabin, every shoulder-strap w.ih souie
other man'f wife, all hands cf us with
"nothing to wear," or very little of it.
Everybody had beeri in bed wfth some
body that didn't belong to them. Wom

husbands, and trying to faint when they

into shoestrings, Fore and aft along the
cabin, passengers came out of bed, by the
the, to see what the riot was. Somebody
yelled "7re" "Boiler going to burst!"
screamed somebody else. "Rebel bat

teer shoulder-strap. "Boat's struck a

"Everybody's gene clean crazy, I do be

After a while they began to get th

rahed ! ha ! ha'd ! and the men roared out

Then we discovered that four of our
party hadn't turned up yet. There were
Colonel Orton and his wife. -They were
all right, of course. Stowed away in old
Millard Fillmore." But there were
Mrs. Ives and Colcnel Marshall. No,
they were not there. Then where were

said, in a sleepy sort tf fashion, "She

A THRILLING STHT.
John Taylor was licensed when a youth
cf twenty one, to practice at the bar. He
was poor, but well educated, and posses
sed extraordinary genius. H married
a Deadly' who afterwards "deserted him
On the 9.h cf April, 1S40, the court
house in Clarksville, Texas, was crowd
ed to overflowing. An exciteinj case
was about to be tried. George Hopkins,
a wealthy planter had offered a gross in
sult to Mary Ellison, tbe young and
beautiful wife of nis overseer. The hus
band threatened to chastise him for the
outrage, when Hopkins went to Ellison'i
house and shot him in his own door.
The murderer was arrested and bailed
to answer the charge. This occurrence
produced great excitement, and Hopkins
in order to turn the tide of popular in
dignation, had circulated reports against
her character, and she sued him for
slander. Both suits were pending for
murner and slander. .
The interest became deeper when it
was known that Ashley and Tike, of Ar
kansas, andS. S. Prentiss, of New Or
leans, by enormous fees, had been re
tained to defend Hopkins.
The slander siit was for the 9ih, tfnd
the throng of spectators grew in number
as well as excitement; public opinion
was setting in for Hopkins; his moaey
had procured witnesses who served his

Judge Mills, looking kindly at the plaint

and I am too poor to employ any more,''
replied the beautiful Mary bursting into
"In such a case will some chivalrous
member of the profession volunteer ?"
said the Judge, glancing around the bar.
The thirty lawyers were silent.
"I will, your honor " said a voice from
the thickest part of the crowd behind the

The first sensation was changed into

license from the highest tribunals in
America !" and handed the Judge a broad
parchment. The trial went on.
He suffered the witnesses to tell their
own story, and he allowed the defense to
lead off. Ashley spoke first, followea by
Pike and Prentiss. Tha latter brought
the house down in cheers, in which the
It was the stranger's turn ; he rises
before the bar, ncr behind it and so
near the foreman that he might touch the
foreman with his long bony finger. He
proceeded to tear to pieces the arguments
of Ashley, which melted away at his
touch like frost before the sunbeam; every
one looked surprised. Anon he came to
the daxzelinf. wit of the poet- lawyer.
Then the Curl of his lip grew sharper,
his smooth face begun to kindle up and
his ejes to open dim and dreary no long
er, but vivid as lightning, red as fire
glebes, and glaring as twin meteors.
Th whole soul was in the eye ; the full
heart streamed oat of his face. Then
without bestowing an allusion to Pren
tiss, turned short round on the perpred
witnesses of Hopkins, tore ir tettiino
ny into shreds, and hurl-d into their faces
such terrible invectives that a! trembled
like Aspens, and two of them fled from
the court house.
