At a recent reception of returned soldiers by Indianapolis a governor Morton called out from the links sergeant Elliott of company a 17th Indiana who with five men captured and brought into cab a i Hundred and Twenty rebel Goldie a after the disastrous Repulja of the latter at Selma Alabama during Wilson s great cavalry expedition through that state. On getting on the platform the sergeant was grasped by the hand by gov. Morton who thanked him for his Gallant exploit and complimented him upon the tact by which one Hoosier was made Mora than a match for Twenty armed rebel soldiers. The sergeant who is a Manly looking Man with a Clear Eye firm step and the modesty that so often attend on Worth declined to give an account of How he carried out his Campaign. He could not blow his own trumpet. Capt. Mccarty however gave an account of the circumstance. A Small Union Force having occupied Selma it was attacked by a targe rebel army confident in its numbers of making an easy capture of the place. They stormed it with great bravery and held out with obstinacy. After the Battle was Over More than a Hundred dead rebels were found on the ground in front of the works occupied by the Detato Cement of the 17tb. This great mortal i was accounted for by the effect that our a had the Spencer repeating Rifle. Capt. Mccarty and All the officers being wounded. Sergeant Elliott took command of tha to company end fought the Battle through. After the repulse a number of the enemy took Refuge in a Ravine and sergeant Elliott and fire men taking a stand where they could Rake it with their repeaters ordered them to come out and surrender a they came in squads of from three to a dozen until one Lyndred and Twenty had delivered up their arms and were marched into Camp. We believe this exploit is unparalleled in modern tires at least and it is hardly equalled by the fabulous tales of the All Honor to sergeant Elliott and Hia Brave companions. A we de waved Tributa.

Wilbur Quot you want that i should allow her to thump upon my Quot yes air if it would not be asking Quot Quot Pooh if the girl can play i Ahall enjoy it to hear her. So you May bring her towards noon the widow returned and with her came Polly Grace. A Sweet Beautiful girl was Polly Grace a form a fault leases the idea of a sculptor a face from which beamed health Happi Ness and love soft melting eyes and hair of Rich Golden Brown which Hung in bewitching curls where it was not confined. And Absalom Wilbur hired her to take the place of the chambermaid who had got married. Polly Grace came like a Ray of Sunshine into the great Bouse. She had pleasant words and a smile for everybody she attended to her duties with promptness and cheerfulness and then when the labors of the Day were done she sat Down to her books or wandered away in the Garden and Orchard. At first she did not touch the piano but or. Wilbur finally asked her to play for him and when he found she would handle the instrument he had it thoroughly tuned and moved out into the Daylight could Polly Grace Phy the piano one Day just As the shades of Twilight were creeping softly Over the scene John Wilbur stopped in the Hall and listened to music. He remembered when his Sisters used to sing but he had never heard such music a that. The notes were As Sweet and pure As the warbling of a Robin and there was a depth and soul in the Melody and in the spirit of the song which fairly entranced the listener. On the following Day late in the afternoon John Wilbur walked into the Garden with Bia Book under Hia Arm intending to read in one of the arbours. He was approaching an Arbor near the end of the main walk when he came upon Polly Grace but Ehe did not see him. Her Back waa toward him and a he had been walking upon the grass his step had not aroused her. What was she doing John was curious to know so be approached a Little nearer and looked Over her Boulder. She had a Sheet of paper spread out before her upon which she was sketching the scene before her. Her Pencil was handled with ease and skill and with a rapidity and Freedom of touch that told that she was matter of the Art. She was at that moment dashing the foliage of the great Elm tree and so absorbed did the Young Man become watching the movement of those Small fingers and in noting the marvelous effects produced by the rapid touches of the Pencil. That he entirely forgot himself. He movadihovghtlea8ly,and Polly Grace started up. Of Fie Fie Sirl Quot she cried quickly turning her sketch Book fact downward. It i beg your Pardon. Misa Grace.

Quot a miss Grace you cannot know the real beauties of Robiller by our Polly Grace smiled and nodded and finally admitted that she had read Schiller in the original. She bad read a few of his compositions not Many. She admired Hia Genius and the elegance of his languid by Ahe doubted his morality. She liked Goethe better. John Wilbur waa astonished anew. He quoted from the Quot sorrows of Werter Quot and from Quot fault Quot and Misa Polly followed him quoting in her turn such passages As suited her St. And then she recited some rare sections in the original to show How utterly impossible it was to Render it into English without leaving behind much of the poet s fancy. Perhats 4 the Young lady understood French. Of yes. I lies a French As fluently As her own language Quot but Quot said John in amaze in it Quot i Don t understand How you have % com Plis bed All Quot Why sir Quot she replied looking of with an Arch expression Quot do you imagine that women have no faculty for improvement Are you one of those Quot Pardon me Quot interrupted John Quot i did not mean that.

But sir Quot she added in a lower tone Quot you must remember that i was not always an orphan a i am once i had a father who loved me and whose chief Joy was in ministering to my wants. Excuse me there was a moisture in her deep Blue eyes and her hand trembled As she held it out after her sketch. John detained her no longer. That was not the last time that John Wilbur talked with Polly Grace. On the very next Day he went into the room where Ehe was playing upon the piano and asked her if he might stay and listen to her music. Certainly he might. She played for her own amusement and recreation and if she could afford entertainment to others she was glad of it. At the end of a month John Wilbur had forgotten the ponderous Tome of Zoroaster and the spirit of music had crept into his soul. In fact that other spirit had taken Possession of him already. He was in love. He loved the fair Polly and he told her so. He made a free and Frank confession and offered her Hie hand and heart. Polly waa not a hypocrite. She loved him in return a loved him truly and fondly and she pillowed her Bead upon his bosom and wept Teara of Joy when she told him so. Would she be his wife yes with his father s consent. John sought his father and put the question. Absalom Wilbur started with astonishment. Quot what marry with my chambermaid Quot Quot but she is worthy Quot said John Quot and i love Quot never Quot said the old Man stamping his foot. Quot is this your answer Quot Quot it is. Let me hear no More of John Wilbur Drew himself up to Hia full bight and turned proudly defiantly away. His spirit was aroused and Bis purpose was fixed. He sought Polly and told her she must be his wife. At first she refused this Only added to his determination. Quot i will not cast from me the Hopes and Joys of a lifetime Quot he said a he Drew the fair one to his bosom. Quot if you forsake me i shall leave Thia spot forever. Be mine and i will love you. I will cherish you i will devote my Best energies to your happiness while we Bot shall Quot of if you would never forget the past if you would never blame me for listening Quot to your persuasion Quot Quot never and finally she consented to be Bia wife.
