No otlior name sounds Imlf so uwuet to mo
As tliL'i beloved old Anglo-Saxon word ,
Whoso Biniplo muutiou stirs homo silcni
Within my heart , and brings mo back to thee ;
McthiiilEs thy dear and raduuit face I ECO
When I , a babe , my fledgling fancy soared
Within a little world where light was
From out thine oycs BO full of sanctity.
When prattling babyhood had passed away ,
Thy tender care fediny untutotod stops
Through narrow ways till manhood
looms apace ,
And then my buoyant bark in unknown
Sets out alone , while thou thy steps
Back unto Him who lives in endless day.
THE LAST GASP.
Tlic Colonel IVlio Dltlii't Recognize
Gen. EiCc'M Authority.
[ Washington National Tribune. ]
Gen. Sheridan tells a very interesting
story about the last campaign against
Lee , and the incidents of the surrender.
It will be remembered that he headed ofl
Lee at Appomattox court house , and
captured eleven trains of supplies which
were waiting for him there. When Leo
found out that he had no stores or
ammunition for his army , and that his
retreat was cut off , he sent a Hag of
truce , which Ouster received and con
ducted to Sheridan. The two armies
laid on their arms waiting for Grant ,
who was on his way to the front.
In the meantime Sheridan and some
of his staff started to ride over toward
Appomattox court house , when they
wore fired upon by a regiment of rebels
half concealed among some underbrush.
The general and his party waved their
hats toward the place where the shots
came from , and made all sorts of dem
onstrations to silence the unexpected
and mysterious attack , but to no pur
pose. Finally , the confederate officer
who brought the Hag and Maj. Allen , of
Sheridan's staff , rode over to see what
the matter was.
They found a South Carolina regi
ment , whose colonel , in a grandiloquent
tone , informed them that the war wasn't
over , and that he and his regiment did
not recognize the authority of Gen. Leo
to make terms for peace. "Be Gawd ,
sir , " exclaimed this gallant Johnny ,
"South Carolinians never surrender ! " .
The two [ "officers rode back to Gen.
Sheridan , who , with his party , had re
tired under eovor , and reported to him
the situation. The general called Cus-
tcr and luld him then ; was one ivgunonl
over in the brush which hadn't got
enough of it , and it would be well fur
him to go over there and "sunn" it out. "
Glister ordered his bugler to sound "for
ward , " and at the head of a regiment
dashed across the interval which lay
between the two armies , which were
drawn up in long lines and stood at rest.
It was a beautiful Sunday morning a
perfect spring day and the sight of that
regiment , with Ouster's long , tawny lian
as their banner- dashing at full gallop
across the fields , evoked a cheer from
Meantime Sheridan had reached the
court-house , where he met Gen. Gordon ,
recently senator from Georgia , and Gen.
Wilcox , who had been his classmate at
West Point , but whom he had not seen
for many years. Wilcox has since been
a doorkeeper of the United States senate.
While this party was sitting on the
steps of the court house , chatting fa
miliarly over the situation , heavy mus
ketry was heard in the distance. Gor
don looked up in anxiety and alarm and
asked one of his aides to ride over in
that direction and iind out what it
meant. "Xcvcr you mind , general , "
said Sheridan. "It's all right. I know
what it means. Ouster is over there
having some fun with a South Caroli
nian who never surrenders. " Gordon
insisted upon sending the officer to stop
the figlit , but before he got there the
doughty colonel had presented Ouster
with a very much battered sword. It
was the last gasp of the army of north

Governor Fairiield , of Maine , on his
return from Philadelphia , on June 1 ,
1844 , as the chairman of a committee of
the national Democratic convention , to
inform Mr. Dallas of his nomination as
vice president , gave an amusing account
of the scene. The committee reached
Philadelphia about 3 o'clock in the
morning , and wera piloted to Mr.
Dallas' house by his friend , Senator
Robert J. Walker- , who was one of the
number. Loud knocks at the dooi1
brought Mr. Dallas to his chamber win
dow , and recognizing Mr. Walker he
feared that his daughter , who was in
Washington , was ill , and he hastened
down-stairs , half dressed and bare
footed , to hear from him. when , to his
utter amazement , in walked sixty or
more gentlemen , two by tvo , with the
tread of soldiers passing him by , and
entering his front parlor as though to
make him a captive. Mr. Dallas , not
having the slighcst conception of their
object , stood thunder-struck at the
scene. Mr. Walker led him into llio
back parlor. "My dear Walker , ' ' said
he , in amazement , "what is the matter ? ' '
"Wait one moment , if you please , Dal
las , wait one moment if you please. ? "
The folding doors were then thrown
open and the whole congregation stepped
forward and gave three deafaninir " cheers
for "Polk "and Dallas ! ' ' Mr. Dallas
stood parlyzed. Mr. Walker enjoyed his
discomfiture. Governor FairiielJ , of
Maine , then slopped forward , nir ! in the
