Cp»fe HAVE PAITH AND STETJ.GGLE ON. A swallow in the spring Came to our granary, and 'neath the eaves Essayed to make a nest, and there did Wet earth, and straw, and leaves. Day after day she toiled ; With patient art, but ere her work was crowned, Some sad mishap the tiny fabric spoiled, And dashed it to the ground. She found the ruin wrought, But, not cast down, forth from the place she flew, And, with her mate, fresh earth and grasses brought And built her nest anew. But scarcely had she placed The last soft feather on its ample floor, When wicked hand or chance again laid waste And wrought the ruin o'er. But still her heart she kept, And toiled again; and last night, hearing calls, I looked, and lo! three little swallows slept Within the earth made walls. What truth is there, O Man? Hath hope been smitten in its early dawn? Hath cloud o'ercast thy purpose, trust or plan? Have faith and struggle on! A MONTH OF PROBATION. "No, my lad! Old heads are wiser than young ones. You mustn't havo your way all at once, though it's a way I confess I like well enough myself. It would look as though «ve took advantage of your good luck and 'nailed' you before you knew your own mind. So do ;us 1 s ly Pack up ai:cf be off to South-wick. H;.1!! if you prefi. :' a city practice to a village o:v', and-a city love—all, well, welll I won't say a.iy;Lii:ig of lliat—but keep away long enuii^i to make sure of what you really wish, and then if you come back, why, I'll bid you wel -omo and—li'nr—some one else perhaps won't lie .sorry!" Thus bluntly spake Dr. Moore to his assist* ant of three vear.s, and though his ultimatum was not alio;re!her agreeable it had to be accepted. Common sense, of which t.he young man had his share, bade Mr. Gerald Dalby yield, .though ho chafed at this first check to his fond hope of bursting suddenly frouf chrysalis to butterfly existence, and resented the implied doubt cast on the tixity of his intentions. "I'll take a month then, if you insist," ha said, rather ruefully. "Three would bo better," quoth the doctor, brutally judicious. "One will be as long as tiiree to me, sir," was the reproachfully pathetic reply, "so it will answer the same purpose." (The doctor coughed dubiously.) -'Tlivn I may speak to "*:-*riir I'IT % .'"IVViY about three times a week. Calling on her fc? my prerogative. You ^on't5 step into that, young gentleman, even if we do knock up a partnership. Still I'm above jealousy! I told Moore that whoever he recommended tome should see tho whole of my circle, so.you may come to Landon and welcome." Acquiescing in which, not without a* cSVerfc smile at what his host evidently considered a magnanimous offer, andean incliiVatipn to announce that even immediate,attendance on Sir Marmaduke's family would not bribe him to stop at Southwick, Mr. Gerald put on a brand new coat and tall professional hat, and was soon spinning along the high road towards the dwelling of this aristocratic patient. (Oh, that lie had been sitting down ^jo tea with Hetty opposite instead!) Up a splen\ did avenue—down a broad drive—through massive gates on a wide graveled space—by a stately brick mansion they pulled up. A hearty voice from a deepmullioned casement greeted them. A fine elderly figure came forth on to the lawn. "Here at last, Earnshaw? My lady's ready for a gossip. Let's hear what you have to say, t'aon I have to take my little girl to a party at the Lennoxes'. She doesn't want to" go, but we won't let her mope—not stop with her mother too much, eh? Who's this?" with a nod at our young doctor; got a new gr——" "Mr. Gerald Dalby—Sir Marmaduke," interposed Mr. Earnshaw. "A. gentleman who may possibly take part of my practice/ "Oh, I beg his pardon," said Sir Marmaduke com teously (Gerald didn't exactly see what for); "come in, sir, while Earnshaw and I go up to ray lady," and as the twoelder gentlemen stepped up tho. flight of dark oak stairs, the junior medicus was ushered into a drawing r<jom unique in his modest experience. It was a room costly yet sober in adornment; big enough to hold half Dr. Moore's whole house; wealth in every detail compared to what he was used to; a scent floating throughout, sweet, refined, delicious. Mr. Gerald drew a deep breath and fell under this new cbarni. With a shudder he recalled the powerful aroma of furniture paste pervading tho Moore's home, where spring cleaning was just over. For the first time tfiat odious smell, those simple solid mahoganies, struck him as vulgar. Towards the satin-draped windows he moved admiringly and saw—something that cast over his foolish brain yet another spell. Just outside, on a broad balcony, a beautiful untidy rose climbed up a lattice. Over its branches, full in his view, stooped a slender figure, clad in pale-tinted silk and lace. An exquisite outstretched arm, a most shapely hand, hovered over a blossom; plucked it; lifted it a moment t° the lips of a. lovely girlish face, then fastened it, to the music of a faint sigh, in the front of her dress. Mute,, entranced stood our young doctor, having but one thought. Oh! to exchange but one word with that vision! The aspiration evoked a gasp. The enchantress without heard it, looked up, and instantly, veiled with a certain gracious dignity the liko of which Mi- Dalby had never seen before, advanced composedly. "Excuse me, I did not hear you announced. You are wishing to.see Sir Marmaduke?" Never since his first hobbledehoyhour at the hospitals had our hero felt so utterly gauche as now. He had an agreeable idea that his general deportment was excellent. Now he felt as clumsy as a fortnight-old puppy; nearly broke a window with his elbow, and all but tripped over a stool; as he stood back to leu does not rest with myself en- Mr." Gerald, rather loftily, his slightly amused senior, to go in seclusion on whether £250 of an old estaibb'shed practice, ; knew he'd that!" and a most pungently passion-would induce the baronet to give induco the charm-totake him.

Ic^ -"H you're still -of 'tlie sfiine w:iy Of thinking," answered * Dr. Moore, sitting down to his writing table, and Mr. Dalby quitted the surgery, bestowing a glance of injured dignity at his own reflection in the little mirror he kept hung up over the medicine bottles. He felt it hard, this young man just come into a large slice of property, not to be allowed a whole cake. at a time. A week ago, if told that he would by now possess a snug two hundred and fifty a year, the legacy of a distant relative, he would have declared himself content for long to come. Now here he was, quite used to feeling himself a man of means, aud ready to grumble because sensible Dr. Moore would not take him for a partner and gave him his pretty niece Hester to wife at four-and-twenty hours' notice ! Tho callous selfishness, the stony hearted worldly wisdom of elderly people were incredible! Mr. Gerald Dalby pitied himself as he packed his portmanteau, and prepared to journey from this Lincolnshire village towards tho Midland city where, under'fhe auspices of Dr. Moore's friend. Mr. Earnshaw, he was to see something of town practice lief ore binding himself to the country. This move was superfluously prudent. It would puzzle Hester—pretty, brown eyed Hester, who had been first so openly, then a trifle timidly delighted at his new prosperity —his Hester, as during-^jhe last few days he had all but called her, who such a little while before had seemed out of. his reach. In the first flush of independence he had felt himself rather a fine fellow to lay his newly-acquired thousands at dear little Hetty's disposal so promptly, and now to have the doctor cold shouldering him down to probation in this excessively cautious wayl "Oh, hang it!" thought Mr. Dalby, cramming his clothes together hi reckless confusion—"It would serve him right if I never came back from Southwick at all!" «. This being his frame of mind, our gentleman was ill at ease through his last evening at Crouleby. Mrs. Moore, good soul, could never keep a secret in her life, and so had not been trusted with this one concerning the young people. For three years she had been on tho alert to repress the impecunious assistant's evident admiration of Hetty. Now she felt aggrieved that, the impediment of poverty removed, he should make no further advances. Hetty was wistful, pale, shy, avoiding direct glance at Mr. Gerald. But when for good night and good-by her little, soft, clever hand lay trembling in his (longer than it had any need to do) the young fellow could have gnashed his teeth over his promise to her uncle, and was fain to whisper: "I shall be writing to you soon, Miss Hetty," as he relinquished the small nervous fingers. So the bro wn eyes shot up one: trusting. beam, and the owner, innocent-hearted and. unsuspicious maiden that she was, comforted herself with that farewell, and lived hopefully through dreary weeks in expectation of that promised letter. But she waited in vain. Day after day went by: no letter came. Three weeks, then arrived a brief missive for Dr. Moore. He read it with a curt "Dalby's all right," and though Hetty was almost crying with hunger for more news she dared ask no questions^ Her uncle was kindness itself to her, but he was frowning over something else. . "Ah, Mr. Dalby has got quite above us hum-drum folks, I expect," complained Mrs. Moore when another fortnight went by without bringing fuller tidiugs of their late assistant. "I really had a better opinion of him. I ftever thought he would forget old friends l i k e t h i s ! ' ' ^ t Some —some one who could have waited patiently, bravely, for years, once sore of his love, but who paled sadly under this most strange negr 'lect. ; "Is Aunt Pleasance right?

It was late, afternoon when he reached SotithWifck—he lost his luggage at ofie junction, his train at another, his attention being less given to his journey than to a six-and-a-quarter kid glove that he carried about in his breast coat pocket.

I am merely waiting for Mr. Earnshaw. I'm—er—looking round . with him. Perhaps—er— I may become his partner." But this position, which would have sounded rather superb to—well, Lincolnshire friends for instance— seemed to shrivel into insignificance at Landon Oaks; Mr. Dalby's voice sounded apologetic as he explained it. and he grew deferentially, unbecomingly red. Patricia Chevron's instincts were all land. The stranger was an intrusion on minutes that she would rather ha«-e spent alone, but he must not be permitted to feel himself so. "Mr. Earnshaw's profession is yours then," she said: "it is a noble one" (Mr. Gerald glowed with returning courage), "we are so dependent on it everywhere." -How thankful he felt he was a doctor! He would make the most of that compliment. "Yes, indeed," he said complacently, "I suppose all people are. And it's a profession that's not exactly easy—er—and—sometimes it's dangerous!" "Ah, yes, even at home it must be that," agreed Miss Chevron, "while abroad—oh, there it must be ten times worse." Her voice betokened sympathy with expatriated practitioners. He wished lie had been one, only then he could not have been here! Women all liked courage. Ho would lay claim to it himself, the more boldly the bet- Afacrazine. I ' -tcr. "Yes, there's dangerous work abroad," said he, "but I should like to be there for that very. reason." She looked at him kindly. "WitlT our army, for instance." (Oh, Mr. Gerald! and good-natured as all the old people of Crouleby confess you over common physic, you know you never yet dressed a cut without feeling sick!) "I've a schoolfellow who's gone in for that sort of thing, and I'm always wishing—at least I wish now—I could step into his shoes! He's in the thick of the fighting in Egypt." This ruse of bloodthirstiness had its reward. Miss Chevron kindled at the spirited words, month Her eyes darkened and glowed. "You wish you were in those terrible scenes! Oh, that is very good of you! Your; friend is safe, unhurt, I hope?" "Righ t as a trivet," responded Mi". Dalby, nhnrmpri at her interest; "he had a run for it lately, though. An English officer was within an ace of being stabbed by a beast of an Arab when Breretonmade a dash forward from his ambulance, broke the fellow's arm to splinters and saved Maj. St. James in the very nick of time. But I beg your pardon"— Miss Chevron hr;d grown suddenly pale—"I ought not- to tell such tales to a lady; they're only fit for men; only"—seeing her eyes begin to sparkle again—"what I should like if I had the chance;" and finding this topic seemed to hold her interest, Mr. Dalby launched into fluent,'talk of the then current campaign, praised the courage of his friend, the splendid deeds of the rescued officer, and keeping himself and his burning desire to share these dangers well to the fore, made such good use of fifteen minutes that beautiful Patricia Chevron actually looked sorry when a servant, entering with carriage wra£s, announced that Sir Marmaduke was waiting without. • Sorry, was she? Sorry at the interruption? Mr. Gerald's heart gave a great thump at the flattering suspicion, and he flung as much suppressed feeling as he dared into his formal farewell when she left him—reluctantly, he could have sworn 1 • • "Good night," she said softly with a most seraphic smile, ^and," she added, with what to his excited fancy seemed eloquent confusion, "yo^ will be coming again, I hope. I like to hear jou talk—of Egypt. " How those words floated about biml and how the whole foreground "of that night's restless slumbers was filled, not by the pretty form, of absent Htetty, but by the fair and fncfiwntinp gentlewoman who had that day crossed his path!

SR xir. lilSi A*'Perb^S"UoMct or policy of Gen. Worth contributed. jso .Pmuch to the favorable prosecution jof the war as his treatment of the chief, )Wild Cat. Early in 1840 his daughter, an interesting girl of twelve y^atsj'fell ifito the bandfl of our troops. This was regarded as a fortunate circumstance, as it would be likely to bring about; an interview with the father. A messenger was sent to him and he came into the camp of. Gen. Worth on the fifth of March. Gen. Worth had a long taik with him concerning the best mode of obtaining .peace; Wild Cat spoke With great sincerity ^frankly stated the condition and feelings of his people; stated the friendly attachment between the Exiles and Indians j^said they would not consent to be ee'pftyate&j, that nothing could be done until their; annual assemblage in June, to feist on the green corn; that, hard as the fate w&Sj he would consent to emigrate, and would use bis influence to persuade otters to do so. ^lifter resnainiiig iHi camp four days be left, accompanied vby his little daugher, whom be presented to ber mother on re&cfctfig.tys, oVrti encampment. There apipeai^ evidence to doubt the sincertt^of ^Wi-Gafer yet it appears that ' "ifeSBWrittsi beibf^ he gave up JS* ^rth, bad ordered mMauding at Fort L Cat ^if he should and 4S®acll»imto Tampa Bay for emigration. On the twenty-first of May, Wild Cat and his brother, with twelve other Indians and three Exiles, came into Fort Pearce where Col. Childs was in command. Wild Cat and his friends had reposed perfect confidence in the honor and good faith of Gen. Worth. Although he had been betrayed by Gen. Hernandez, acting under orders of Gen. Jessup; had been imprisoned and suffered much; yet from the manner and bearing of Gen. Worth he had been led to place the most implicit confidence in his sincerity. Col. Childs, however, obedient to orders, seized Wild Cat and his companions and placed them in irons and sent them to Tampa Bay, where they were immediately placed on board a transport and sent to New Or-leansj en route for the western country. Gen. Worth, when he learned the manner of his seizure, in violation of his plighted faith, at once dispatched a faithful officer with explicit directions to bring Wild Cat and his friends back to Florida. The officer found them at New Orleans and forthwith started with them on his return to Tampa Bay. Gen. Worth set out to meet the distinguished chief and reached Tampa Bay on the 3d of July. The next day he went on board the ship, which had arrived with Wild Cat and his friends, who were yet in irons. The general took Wild Cat by the hand; assured him of his friendship; explained to him the mistake by which he had been arrested;, but told him, also, that so great was his renown as a warrior, and such were the fears which the people entertained of him, that he was constrained to hold him as a prisoner. Wild Cat felt his dignity, as Gen. Worth with consummate policy recounted the devastation and death which he had scattered throughout the territory. Gen. Worth then touched the vanity of the Indian by telling him he had the power to put an end to the war. He then made an arrangement with Wild Cat to send five of his most trusty companions into the interior to search out the remainder of the band and bring them in for emigration. It was accomplished in 40 days, without bloodshed, and Wild Cat's band,, numbering 78 warriors, 64 women and 47 children, wer§ convened at Tampa. Bay for emigration. The number of Exiles who belonged to Wild Cat's band and surrendered at this time is unknown, but the number seized with him by Col. Childs at Fort Pearce, was about one sixth the number of Indians, and probably about one sixth of this band were Exiles. No commander subseqent to Gen. Jessup rrri- r^T fi^nrJian ffH ieminoles and treated alike , as .prisoners of war. When anyone made a claim for a negro as being his escaped slave, Gen. Worth directed the proof to be taken, the value of the slave estimated, and then sent him west with other prisoners, leaving the government to pay for them or not, as the Executive and Congress should determine. When Wild Cat learned that his warriors had all come in, he turned to the officer of the guard and requested that his irons might be removed and he be allowed to address his warriors like a man. His shackles were taken off; he dressed himself in gay attire; a crimson cap upon his head, from which waved three ostrich plumes; his breast covered with glittering silver ornaments; a many colored frock fastened about his waist by a red silk girdle, in which was thrust his scalping knife in its appropriate scabbard. Red leggins and ornamented moccasins completed his attire. He was attended on shore by several officers, who took seats with him in a boat. As they approached the shore Wild Cat became dignified and haughty in his deportment, and as he stepped on shore he waved his hand for his ft-iends to fall back. They impulsively obeyed, and Wild Cat, raising himself to his full height, sent forth a shrill war-whoop, in token of his freedom, that reached every ear in the vicinity, It was instantly answered by the whole band. Wild Cat immediately went to headquarters, saluted Gen. Worth in a respectful manner, and then turned' to address his dusky companions. He told tKem the arrangements he had made with Gen. Worth? • that they were now at peace with the white people; thanked them for so cheerfully coming in, and then called for his wife and child, who had been silent spectators of the scene. As they came forward the feelings of the husband and father overcame him for an instant, but he soon resumed his haughty demeanor and < mingled again with his faithftil warriors. Wild Cat henceforth lent all his power to forward emigration, visiting the different and scattered bands on several occasions and persuading the few yetobdurate chiefs -to give up and emigrate. In this he was successful and small bands of Indians and Exiles continued to come in from day to day, until there were three hundred ready to emigrate. The war seemed to be at an end. Gen. Worth informed the War Department that by the middle of September (1841) thre& regiments could be spared. from the service. Wild cat now told Gen. Worth that he desired to see his people on their way; that Indians were a restless people and that-the sooner they were moving the better. Gen. Worth received the advice with respect and at oace gave-orders to prepare Ibr the Journey. Seventeen twar-riors and their families were detailed to remain with Gen. Worth; for-a while, to exert what influence they could with the remaining Iqdlans in favor of emigration. The emigrants were all on board the. transports, when Gen. Worth and staff paid them a farewell visit. The scene was said to be affecting. The. women-;, both Exile and Indiana-were sighing and weeping. The warriors—bUck and red-were solemn and silent. This appeared to give Wild Cat pain, He stood upon the quarter deck,' Witfi his sub-chiefs around him. I As Geff, Worth wis about to tak* leaV^Wttd Cat spdfo* "lafc looking at the last pine tree of my native land. I am about to leave Florida forever ; and I can truly say that I have never done anything to disgrace the land of my birth; it was my home, and I loved it as I loved my wife and child. To part from it is like separating from my own kindred. But I have thrown away the rifle; I have shaken hands with the white man, and I look to him for protection." He then addressed Gen. Worth; thanked him for his kindness and confidence, and on behalf of his people he expressed a high sense of gratitude for the humanity and friendship extended to them. Then extending his hand to the general he bade him farewell. In two weeks from the time they left Tampa Bay they were landed in the West, of which we shall say more before these sketches are closed. Near the close of 1841, the people of Georgia and Florida gave evidence of their dissatisfaction of the manner in which Gen. Worth was conducting the war. No opportunities were afforded them of seizing negroes and selling them into slavery. None but the regular sutlers were allowed to encamp with or near the troops; in short, the war as then conducted afforded them but little profit. Gen. Worth had discharged citizens' and their slaves from public employment and the war was carried on without permitting the people, or politicians of Georgia or Florida, to interfere or dictate the manner of its prosecution. The authorities of Georgia and Florida appealed to the War Department, insisting that they should furnish militia to carry on the war. The Secretary of War at once referred the matter to Gen. Worth and an interesting and amusing correspondence followed between the governor of Georgia and the commanding general. The latter refusing to call for militia from that state, they were mustered without his authority, and the governor of Georgia requested the general to withdraw the United States forces from the Georgia frontiers. As there was then no enemy near that state, and no danger to the inhabitants, Gen. Worth withdrew the troops and the Georgia militia was ordered by the governor to take their place. They did so with the expectation that Gen. Worth would furnish rations, hospital supplies and arms from the United States stores. This he refused to do and the gallant militia, getting hungry, were obliged to retire to their homes to dine. The correspondence on this subject continued until "May, 1842, and it shows^the skilful management of individuals _.to • get • up alarms in "regard s "'and'thereby t cessity of posting troops in certaln locali ties, when there had probably never been a sign of an enemy. To give importance to these counterfeit alarms letters were written and presentments made by grand juries. The delegate from the territory iSf Florida had the audacity to demand of the Executive of the United States the employment of militia for the protection of the frontier, and more audacious still, that they should act independently of the commanding general. The Secretary of War also referred this to Gen. Worth. The result was he gave them to understand that he knew his business. And he did it too. At the beginning of 1843 more troops were discharged, the number of the enemy being so reduced as to render their presence useless. On the 5th of February some 350 Indians and Exiles were embarked at Tampa Bay for the western country. In due time they reached their destination and took up their abode with their brethren, who were still residing on the lands of the Cherokees. According to the best information Gen. Worth could obtain there now remained in Florida only about 300 Indians, and these were in small scattered bands. Gen. Worth addressed a letter to the War Department stating that it was impossible to capture them, and advised that they be dealt with in a peaceful manner. He also said five:sixths of the troops then in Florida could be withdrawn. He proposed sending a portion of the friendly Indians, who remained at Fort Brooke, among the hostiles, to continue with them and exert what influence they could in favor of peace and emigration; with the assurance that no further hostilities would be prosecuted by the United States while the Indians remained peaceful. The proposition was,however, rejected by the Executive, and Gen. Worth continued to carry forward the work which he had prosecuted with such signal success. On the 16th of April, 1843, he fell in with the chief Tustennggee, and about 70 warriors, who were encamped on an island in the Great Wahoo swamp, and after a fight of about two h9urs, routed them. The loss was slight on both sides. The Indians scattered in various directions and thus evaded pursuit. This was the last battle of the Florida wars, - In a few- weeks Tustenuggee and bis band, being destitute Of provisions, came into the camp of the United States forces, where they were fed, sent thence to Tampa Bay, and on the 14th of July they were embarked for the western country. The President of the United States now concluded to adopt the plan of Gen. Worth, and, . accordingly, a treaty of peace was made with the remaining Indians. Most of the troops were now withdrawn from Florida. Gen. Worth retired from the command, and the Florida war was supposed to have ended. The results of the war may be stated as follows: more than 500 persons were seized and enslaved, between the first of January, 1835, and the fourteenth of August, 1843. To effect this the government expended about $40,000,000; or $80,000 and the lives Of three white men for the enslavement of each black m&n. The deterioration of our national morality Was beyond estimate,: and the disgrace bf our nation and government,was a matter incapable of computation. ; In the next and concluding sketch, we will follow the Indians and Exiles to their new home, where the reader will learn something more of the treaty in accordance or which "Barnes & Co." say the Flprida war originated. r ^ ^Concluded next DON'T Pay $50 FOR A I" Until you have examined the "Tin mill mm " AT HAZAPDVIUE, CONN.
