"More than from any other living

tils city. " '
" 01" cried Clarence , clasping his hands
pd raising his eyes to heaven , "heaven
blew and protect her ! Hut have you
heard from her blnce ? "
"Yes this very morning. Bho was in
tha city of Mexico n week ago , and was
i-olnj ; from there to Valladolid. "
"And was she well ? "
"Ycs-perfectly so. " '
"O , 1 bless you , good Kenor , for this.
Henceforth my bondage will be light in
omparlbon with the past month. Of
toursp , I shall know where she Is when
t am free ? "
"Yes. You shall see me. If I do not
ftnd you , you must sock me. Hut 1 may
act you now occasionally. If you will
belp me make the oulcers of the prison
think I am your confessor I con gain ac
cess here often. "
"I will. O , I'd confess a thousand bins ,
Cor one word from Irene. Hut you will
some ns often us you hear from her ? "
"If I can , of course ; for I only hear for
yon. She needs no word for mo alone ,
nve the warm friendship she feels for
, 11 who have been kind to her. "
Awhile longer they communed upon the
pubject of Irene and her father , and then
the good priest took hln leave.
From that time forth Father Hondo
yislted the prison as often ns convenient.
In another month he brought further
-ord from Irene. She was In Valladolid ,
nd there she meant to stop through the ,
winter , as she had found a comfortable
home and was safe from danger.
Thus the months wore away , and Clar-
tnce begun to wonder if he should ever
be free. A strong hope had thus far sus
tained him , but he bepan now to falter.
He often ntked his jailers how the war
was progressing , but they lied to hint.
He knew this from the statements of the
priest. March came , with its winds and
terms , and yet the prison doors were not
opened. Hut in a fi > w days from Unit
time the olllcers who sometimes visited
the cells wore strange expressions upon
their countenances. Clarence kept u cal
endar upon the wall of his dungeon with
an old nail which be hud begged of his
Jailer for that purpose. One morning
after eating his breakfast he went to the
wall to make hl mark for that day. It
was the ninth mark for March.
"IlaTk , " uttered 1'ctcr , as his master
turned from the wall. "What h that ? "
"Perhaps the troops arc turning out
lor drill , " answered Clarence.
"No , no. Do you not hear that distant
ound ? That hum , ns though a vast con-
ourse of people were shouting ? "
"Ay I do , " aald the captain , bowing
his head and listening.
"And did you not notice how pale and
agitated the aohlicr looked who brought
In our breakfast ? "
' 7 did not look at him. "
"But I did and I noticed that be was
murh moved , too. "
After this the two prisoners listened
attentively , and while they were thus
listening Gonrales Hondo was admitted
to their cell.
"Hare you heard anything ? " the priest
"Yes , good father ; and we were listen-
lag as you came in. What Is It ? "
"A large army of United Statca troops
U landing opposite the city , and a heavy
Beet of warships Is moored here. "
"Uo ! " cried the youth , leaping up and
lasplng his hands. "My lellverance Is
ftieh at hand. "
"Do not found too much hove upon
that , my son , " returned the priest , with a
dubious shake of the head. "When peace
fa declared , tbeu you may com- forth
from join prlhon , but I fancy this Invest
ment will not bring such an event about ,
unless nftcr defeat lieru the Americans
choo e to capitulate. "
"Who commands the American
forces ? "
"Gen. Wlntield Scott , so I have heard. "
"Then your city In gone , " pronounced
Clarence. In a calm , poxlllvc tone. " 1
know Verii Critr. is .t strong place , but It
c.uinol withstand the power of your ene
my. Mark mt I know this. "
"I rnimot agree with you , sennr , " the
priest icplied , full as confidently. "Why
-oven this castle is invulnerable to such
a force. No , no jour hope lies not In
thnt direction. "
"Very well , " returned Clarence , with
Binlle , "we will not dispute this point
now. Onlj let me say and I sny it with
a full knowledge of all the circumstances
If Ljndero Is wire , he will capitulate.
If he does not he will not only lose Ills
city , but n most dreadful carnage must
be the result. You know what drpndfnl
scenes must necessarily accompany the
besieging of a large and densely popu
lated city. "
" 1 know I know , " said the priest , sol
emnly. "Hut 'tis the fate of war. O ,
wh.\ will men in their national capacity
do that for which they would hang each
other as Individuals ? "
When tlie prisoners were left alone
again they passed the time in listening to
the hum of the distant army. When noon
came , Clarence noticed the appearance
of the man who brought his dinner. lie
was pale and trcmbliua
"What is all this noise we hear in the
distance ? " asked Clarence , ns the soldier
was upon the point of turning away.
The man turned and looked the speak
er In tlip f.tcc , but ho was not used to
the dim light , and he could not sec the
prisoner's face plainly.
" 1't is an army como to be cut up and
driven into the sea , " he nt length replied ,
"Have the American * come ? " the cap-
tni\i asked , honestly.
"Yes. They're fools or els they're
"They must he , " rejoined Clarence , "If
they Imagine the people here will aurren-
der without fighting. I suppose you nre
prepared to fight to the death. "
"Yen , " answered the Mexican , with n
ghastly effort to appear bold and deter
And In a moment more he was gone.
And so the day wore nway , nnd when
Clarence laid his head upon his hard pil
low nt night , he could still henr the busy
l/nm thnt cnme ui > from the camp of
Night 'allowed day , and day came
again , until Clarence had made seventeen
marks for the days that had dawned in
March. On the morning of the eighteenth
he arose as usual , and when the soldier
came with the breakfast he noticed that
he was more tremulous than usual. At
length there came a strange stillness over
the city. It seemed an oppressive , death
ly Hllence. But it lasted not long. Soon
there came a thunder crash , and the old
castle trembled to its very foundations.
Anon tlie thunderitix commenced in the
city , and ere long the air of the dun
geon held the odor of exploding powder.
"The bombardment has commenced , "
shouted Clarence. "Ho , my noble boy ,
our people have opened the ball. As sure ,
ns fate this place must fall. " t
"I hope HO , " returned Peter.
"Hilt I know it. If the Mexicans are
stubborn they may hold out some time ,
but they must como to it after a while. "
And now the booming of the heavy ar-
tlllpry was incessant. One continuous
| roar filled the nlr , ' and tlie old castle
i shook like n reed hut in a gale. And
| there came the sound of that sharper ,
harsher crashing , as the huge shells burst ;
about the place. So passed the long day
nway , and even into the night the earth
shook with the bursting of tlie shells and
Thus passed six days , during which the
roar of cannon and mortars was almost
nccxsant. On thu morning of the sev
enth day Father Hondo made his ap-
) carancc.f lie was pale and wan , and
its btep was tremulous. HP extended his
land , but the salutation was performed
u silence ,
"Good father , said our hero , " 1 am
glad you have come , for now I can know
what is going on. How goes the siege ? "
"Alas , my son , It is a fearful \\ork
that Is being done ! " the ( iciest replied ,
with n shudder. "I have read of wars ,
md T knew they were dteadful , but I
never dreamed of uch scenes of horror
us have presented themselves to my gaze
during the past few days. "
"Then the execution In the city U con
siderable ? "
"O ! dieadful dreadfull"
"But how goes it now ? " auked Clar
ence , who hud more interest in the prob
able result thnu in the mere work that
was going on.
"Our city IH ono vast slaughter house ! "
uttered Hondo , with his hands clasped
upon his bosom. "Houses ure torn in
pieces ; the ground plowed up by bursting
shells , and the whole city running with
the blood of its people ! In every street
the dead and dying nre lying helpless and
hopeless , and the ; agonizing groans sound
above the roar of the cannon. One mo
incut I beheld a family a father and
mother , whouo heads were white with
years , and some half dozen of children
who clung to them for safety. On the
next moment I saw a huge shell fall di
rectly in their midst , and In a second of
time the poor creatures were torn In
pieces ns If by the fangs nnd claws of
some ravenous monster ! 0 , it U too
dreadful , even for thought ! "
' 'But will not the city surrender ? " ask
"They must they mint , " the priest re
plied. "Day before yesterday , many of
the most wealthy citizens waited upon
Laudero , and begged of him to capitu
late ; but he refused. And again last
night the general was waited upon by
many people ; but he would not listen.
Yet he must come to it. 0 , he is much
to blame now , for If he has aeuso ho must
sec that ho cannot hold out many days

Nlghl and day canu- again and Clur-
once placed another mark upon his calen
dar. It wan the twenty-sixth one for
.Mnrrli. He hnd hardly fixed his mark
when the firing ceased , and ere IOIIK a
death-like stillness reigned over thu place.
"Hark ! " whl.spt'i-ed Peter.
"Ai hark ! " shouted Howard , spring
ing buck and clasping his hands. "Isn't
thut a glorious youndV"
It wan a ohouU-a prolonged , thundering
shout of victory , that saluted the ears of
thu prisoners ; and it came from the dis
tant army , where the Americans were.
Now the youthful captain was nervous
nnd anxious. I ach hour seemed an age ,
and he longed to greet Ids brave compan
ions. But time was not moved aside at
his prujer , nor could Ills longings expe
dite tlie transactions Hint were going on
without. Hut the time came at length.
When the dungeon hud become dark and
drear once more , and just as the prisoners -
ers had mmJc up their minds that they
were to spend another night in the prison ,
the trump of heavy feet was hoard in the
long , n relied corridor , and shortly after
wards the heavy door was opened.
"Number one hundred nnd seven , 'pils-
oner of war , ' " read nn otllcer , who hold
an open book In his hntid. "Now , whom
hove we here ? " |
"Oircnt heaven , I thank theo ! " ejaculut- .
ed Clarence , raising his clasped hands.
"Charley don't yon know me ? " '
"Mh ? What ? Whose voice is that ? "
"Clarence Howard owned It once. "
"Clur what ? Clarence Howard ?
Heaven bless you , my dear fellow ! "
Half a dozen Amcilcan ofllcers crowd
ed about the spot , nnd when they knew
that the prisoner was in reality the noble
commander of the Lone Stniv their joy
knew no hounds.
The sun was just sinking when How
ard emerged Into the wide court of the
castle , and for n moment a sensation of j :
horror pervaded his noul , for the ghastly
evidence of tlie death work that had been '
going on were to be seen upon all sides.
On the following morning Clarence re
ceived n visit from one of the general's
orderlies , who bade him wait upon the
commnnder-ln-chlef at once. Our hero
had eaten his breakfast , HO he was ready
to sot out , nnd he accompanied- mes
senger back. He found the stout old
general with numbers of his ptnfl about
him. He arose as the young captain was
introduced , and extended his hand ,
"Am I right , sir , in looking upon you
as tlie commander of the Texan schooner
of war which has done so much execution
against the enemy ? " asked Scott , gazing
admiringly Into the handsome face of the
"I am the man , general , " replied Clar
ence , modestly.
"And how came you here ? " the old
The youth told his story in ns few
words ns possible.
"And besides all this , " he added , after
he had told of the message he had le-
ceivcd from 1'rene , "I knew that 1 should
gain from the maiden some information
of the privateers thut had fitted out nt
this port , as her father knew them all ,
and had some interest in one or more of
them. But I gained nothing , ns you al
ready know , save pretty snug winter
( luarters. "
"Well , " returned Scott , "you haven't
lost much , for there's been nothing of
much consequence going on since jou
were imprisoned until we commenced
this bombardment. And now what do
you wish to do ? "
"J should like tit work , but what are
your movements ? "
"I am for the Mexican capital , cap
"Then let me go with you. ( ! lve me
n musket , and let me go. "
"We'll do butter than thnt , " mild the
general , with n look of pleasure. "You
shall keep me company , and we'll find a
commission and a pair of epaulettes for
, \on ; by the powers , mj dear sir , , we need
such good heads and arms ns yours. "
It was soon settled that the young ofll-
cor should go with the army , and take
his station near the comniaiider-iii-chlef ,
until SOIIIP vacancy should occur where
bis presence should be more needed. Dur
ing the remainder of tlie time thnt the
army remained at Vera Cruz , Clarence
spent the time very pleasantly with his
In-other ofllcers. Scott opened the port to
the commerce which had been languish
ing under the blockade , and placed the
gallant Worth in command of the city.

"A doxi'ii years ngo , when I was do-
in ? , ' some Hpi'dal work In thu secret-sor-
rlrc department under Chief Hell , I tin-
ilortunk lo nin down n fellow who had
lit'i'ii making some reniarl'ahly perfect
counterfoil silver dollars , and who had
clipped through the fingers of the of
ficers when they raided his place and
captured his plant. Thu man had
( alien his meals for several months ut
u restaurant I patronized now and
then , and I noticed him , casually , sit
ting at the lahle , hut ( lie. only thing 1
could remember about him was that
he ate a great many oysters , and al
ways called for raspberry vinegar and
white pepper to use on them as condi
ments. The combination was rather
peculiar , and had llxed Itself on my
mind , but It could hardly be regarded
us much of a clew. I hunted high and
low for the fugitive , and , after putting
In four or live weeks of the hardest
kind of work without discovering any
thing that would give the slightest
lead lo his whereabouts , I gave up In
ik'.spalr and , for the time being put the
( use In the pigeonhole.
"Fully six months afterward another
affair of an entirely different charac
ter took me to a city In a distant state ,
and one afternoon I dropped In at a
good-.sly.ed fancy grocery to make some
inquiries about an address. "While I
was waiting to speak to the proprietor
I heard an unusually fat man giving a
i-lerk an order for a gallon of raspberry
vinegar and impressing him particu
larly to send the best quality. Natural
ly , the stuff reminded me of my missIng -
Ing counterfeiter , and after the fat
gentleman went out I asked the clerk
carelessly who he was. 'lie keeps n
restaurant at No. - , ' replied the
young man. 'I wonder If he Is as par
ticular about his white pepper also , ' I
remarked on the Impulse of the mo
ment The clerk looked nstonMied.
'Why , that's funny , ' he said , ' 1 sold
him some extra strong Imported white
pepper only yesterday. It seemed
hardly possible that It could be any
thing more than a mere coincidence ,
but on the bare chance that I had
struck a Irall I strolled around to the
restaurant that evening , and the first
man I laid eyes on was my long-lost
silver-dollar expert. lie was eating
raw oysters with vinegar and pepper ,
and I was so pleased with myself that
I let him get through before I tapped
him on the shoulder and told him ho
was Under arrest. It turned out that
ho had struck town only a week before ,
and had called for his favorite condi
ments at this particular cafe. They
weren't on hand in the place , but the
proprietor promised to get them for
him , and the result was thai the epi
curean counterfeiter did seven years In
the United States prison at Columbus.
