Meantime, some .years after .his disap- pearance, a childless uncle (Bclah Coe, of Buffalo.) died, and by will left to him and his sister ample property for life, with reversion to their children-, but with a provision that in caso of their death, without issue, the reversion should go to two educational charitable insti-.

The Prince arose to receive his remark- able guest. There they stood for a mo- ment, looking each other in the face the second heir to the French crown and the scarred and bronzed veter-an of a score of battles. Advancing the Prince grasped the old man's hand, and conducting him to a seat, spoke so kindly that the an's heart overflowed, and he burst into at all acquainted with the long tears. To those history of the Napo] conic dynasty, neith- er the kindness of the Prince nor the emo- tion of the old soldier will be wondered at.

In thai interview, yesterday, the veter- an ''fought his battles o'er again."

Monday afternoon, two farm ed in Camp Curtin, in this State, sought an interview with the officer of the day, and informed him that they wore in search of a girl who had strayed away. The of- ficer thought a military camp a queer place to hunt for etray girls, especially as it reflected on the virtue and dignity of the men at arms; nevertheless, the gentlemen were at liberty to search. As the old song says, "they hunted her high and they hunted her but they did not hunt her "when a year pass'd for lo in less than an hour she was found on- guard, doing duty as.a sentinel, in the uniform of Capt. Kuhn's company of ri- flep, at. Carlisle. We do not know what name she enlisted under to protect the honor of her country'3.flag, but her real name is Sophia Cryder, and her residence only about a mile from this city. She had been in. Capt. Kuan's company over a week, is a plump lass of only sixteen years of age, and had so completely un- sesed herself that she could safely bid defiance to any one not acquainted with her to detect her. How she shirked an examination, which is said to be made with great strictness by tlie medical men at Camp Curtin, we are not informed. She is recognized- as a girl of unblem- ished reputation, and did not. as geners ally happens in such cases, enlist to be near the object of her affections, but merely in a wild spirit, of adventure.
