A hold on Tom a done to shoot that lady v Tom looked up with an expression which said i will if i have a mind to but the lady gave him such a merry smile that he Drew Back a Little and mrs. Baldwin heard him say a a Well id rather not shoot her i reckon. The dirty baby was still peeping through the cobwebs. He caught a glimpse of her sunshiny face and instantly commenced and catering that the lady had to Stop and look at him and say aloud.

These pleasant hours will soon be Over life a Stern to unities will Baste too soon Aud Bright eyed childhood come no More 9 Story of Homan nature. The Long walk Down town from he Dison Street hew York where mrs. Jefferson lived could be very much shortened bypassing through a dirty Alley designated a Howard mrs. Jefferson Seldom availed herself of the advantage this Cross Way offered but one Day being in great haste she said to herself a i think i will venture to go through the dirty accordingly Quot she Drew Down her face to its greatest possible length and with a frown upon her brow set her pretty gait ered foot upon the walk. Passing along bewailing the necessity which subjected her to the annoyance of such miserable spectacles and offensive oders she approached a group of boys amusing themselves with pop guns. Half a dozen voices shouted a pop goes the weasel a and Tho potatoes from the guns of the accurate marksmen came in Contact with mrs. Jas nose. Darker grew the frown of her brow and Darker still As she received the unmistakable evidences that the next aim was taken at her Back. An expression of disgust mingled with mrs. Jefferson a frown As she discovered a dirty Little child smiling at her through a cobweb curtained window. The baby a sister saw the look on her face and treated her to a splash from a mud puddle by the door. A you Nasty thing 1�?T said mrs. Jefferson but was interrupted by another splash from a puddle by the door. Some boys were making miniature locomotives of mud on the they did not notice the lady s approach until her fretful voice inquired a can i pass a a yes just As Quick As we got this in Jino done a said one. A let her go by Bill. Only done to tip the ears Over with your hoops a said another. The boys considered this a very witty remark and Thoy sont Forth Long and boisterous shouts which were anything but musical. Howard Street was full of dirty ragged saucy children and it needed Only a passing glance to see that they lived in places too filthy to be honoured with the name of Home. Mrs. Jefferson was glad enough when she reached the Broad and decent throng fare but she could not help seeing the mud splashes on her dress she feared the potato from the pop guns had left its Mark on her face and her Gaiter boots had not at All improved by the coming in Contact with Tho dirt. The faces of those a horrid children a seemed to haunt her too. She went Home the furthest Way round resolving whatever her haste might be never again to try and save time by passing through Howard Street. Just behind her tripped along her Little neighbor mrs. Baldwin. A rather uninviting a she said to herself As her Happy face looked Down the Dingy Alley a but ill try and see How Many smiles i can get from the dirty Little with grateful feelings in her heart that god had drawn her lines in pleasant places she reached the pop gun marksmen who had taken such successful aim at mrs. Jefferson. A Pfow for my smiles a thought mrs. Baldwin As she greeted the boys with such a Frank genial look that it won pleasant answering staffer from All Little engine Matt were in 6d with their mud Toj and Hes about Ieav no their work Long enough to let the lady pass but she said pie a a a these re very Nice locomotives Boyste Ultra und in collision with the a the boys maw Pway for her right quickly and from the voice of More a a than one of them came a a bed Pato Don a a every Little child was ready to give Back smile for smile and it was with a face perfectly Radiant with happiness that she greeted her friends As she passed Down main Street. Mrs. Baldwin told her husband All about the walk and her adventure and he silly fellow kissed her and said a bless your heart wife 1 you Are a perfect Sunbeam. Who besides you could find anything but wretchedness in Howard Street a mrs. Jefferson thought she would never go near the dirty Alley again but on talking with some ladies of a benevolent association of the degradation of its inhabitants she consented after considerable urging to go As missionary to the a poor miserable she supplied herself with a bundle of tracts and taking eare to Wear clothing which would not suffer the least injury from dirt she sallied Forth on her Mission. A dear dear me a she said As she entered a wretched domicile a should think you would infect Tho whole City with fevers and cholera. Done to you know it is shamefully wicked for you to be so dirty ? a re you a Friend of the Saviour a she added in a simple tone. A i done to want to be if you Are a was the reply. A Here Are some tracts i should like to have you read if you the woman snatched the tracts from her hand Tore them to pieces and threw them in her visitors face. Shaking the dust from her feet mrs. Jefferson passed from that dwell ing to another making similar remarks and meeting with a similar reception. A Here comes that Cross woman who looks so ugly at baby a sister and companions and she slammed the door in mrs. Jefferson s face. A i should think you would be Slek and i should think your husband would drink says mrs. J. To a Pale feeble looking woman. A i am not surprised at it at All. You ought it to live in this miserable mrs. Jefferson did her duty in distributing her tracts but she had the satisfaction of seeing the most of them follow her into the Street and the rest were consigned to the flames. A those creatures Are hopelessly depraved said mrs. Jefferson. A there is no use trying to do anything for Howard mrs. Baldwin could not help feeling in the children who responded so readily to Hor kind looks and so without telling even or. Baldwin Liat she proposed to do she set out to make some Calls among them. She thought she would Call first where the baby lived for she Felt quite sure of a kind reception. A twas a Joyful Welcome they gave her for the baby a sister exclaimed �?~0, Here is the pleasant lady who stopped to look at Patsy the other Day of she is coming right in a it is too dirty a place for the like of be said Patsy smother. A never mind said our sunshiny mrs. Baldwin a i Felt like dropping in and i thought i would take the a bless be for it 1 i am ashamed to have a Rale lady to Sec my things did no to use to go so wid me a no invade la and the poor woman poured her life a history into the strangers ear. Tears filled the Loving listeners eyes and she replied a i think i can understand your feelings my Good woman. A poor weary body must require rest after she has been out Over a Wash tub All Day but this smart Little girl,.who swept the walk so nicely the other Day could make a capital House keeper i am wont you try it my Little girl a wont you Placo everything and scrub everything up clean and keep Nice and tidy try so when i Call again i can say How Nice you look Wash your dear Little baby brother a face and Brush his hair and have Bis clothing clean and i shall love to tend and kiss him for he is a Beautiful baby i mrs. Baldwin called upon every family in Howard Street Quot that afternoon. None treated her rudely and Many opened their he re to her a the baby s Mother had done. They promised to follow the advice she offered while her tears fell with theirs and the kind look and encouraging words left Sun beams in the cheerless Home after she had gone. It in two or three weeks mrs. Baldwin called again. Baby sister bounded to meet her exclaiming with de Light a the Sweet lady has come at last she a come to last. The a Sweet lady could hardly believe it was the a pm c of face where she had called before. had been brushed Down the old Broom service in the mud pudd Wallfi swept and scrubbed the Fioros everything was in order. A feign pals and common Flowers form eds Douquet for the table and the crowing catering baby a perfectly bewitching in is wholesome cleanliness. I a Well done my Brave Little girl in i Hope you on a keep of indeed and i will keep on May am a lathe save be won t Stop away nights As Long As everything is so Nice and pleasant Here and my Mother says she can rest a great Deal better when she comes Home and her face looks so Happy too i o ainu to it Nice to be clean 1�?T some had failed to carry out. Their plans of Reform but others bad succeeded and testified to the delights of a neat orderly Home. The indolent and discouraged House keepers were roused by the Good example of their neighbors and one by one they followed suit until at length the leaven had leavened the whole Lump. After two or three such Friendly visits mrs. Baldwin took some tracts with her. They were not Only kindly received but different families met together to hear them read not so much for the Good they might get As for the kind lady a Sake. The tracts produced Good effects however and from time to time there were added to the various City churches from the of Howard Street of such As shall be saved. It was two years ago that mrs. Baldwin made her first Call at the dirty Alley 1 and now the walk which shortened the Way Down is lined with neat cottages with Flowers in the Yards and vines curtailing the windows the Homes of sober contented working men and women. Mr3. Jefferson wonders and Many others what can have wrought such Happy changes. Mrs. Baldwin has never blazoned her successful work abroad but she thanks god that he made her the instrument of beginning the work in Howard Street. Waterloo. Of june came a and debug no lain by was a Victor Tant at Quatra the return of Napoleon from Elba to Paris was the signal for All the Allied armies of Europe to be on their March to crush him. Hurriedly Napoleon collected 120,000 men to repel the million of bayonets now crowding upon France. Wellington and Blueher were in the Vicinity of Brussels with 100,000 each. To save France the horrors of invasion Napoleon resolved to Cross the Frontier and fall upon one body of the enemy and then another until they should to compelled to negotiate. At 3 of clock in the morning of the 12th of june Napoleon left the Tuil eries for his last Campaign. He took leave of Taulai Nourt saying a Farewell we must conquer or driving rapidly through the Day and the succeeding night lie arrived on the morning of the 13th, at a Esnes 150 Miles from Paris. Here he had assembled All his available Force. Wellington was at Brussels and Blueher a few leagues from him neither of them dreaming of attack. They were waiting the arrival of 200,000 russians with whom they were to commence their March upon Napoleons plan was to attack Wellington by a Surprise and destroy his Force and Blucher a and then to March against the russians. In an hour after Napoleons arrival at a Esnes the whole army was in motion. By different routes they were directed to meet at Charleroi 35 Miles Distant at an appointed hour. Gen. Burmont was in charge of one of these divisions. Infamously he deserted and revealed to the allies the plans of the emperor. Behind the entrenchments of Charleroi Napoleon found ten thousand prussians ready to dispute his to attacked them so vigorously that they soon retreated leaving 2,000 of their dead behind them. It was 80 Miles from Charleroi to ten Miles on this Road is situated Tho Little Hamlet of Quatro bras. Ney with 40,000 men was ordered to Advance immediately to that spot. A concen trate there your Moni said the emperor. A fortify your army by Field works. Hasten so that by Midnight this position occupied and impregnable shall bid Defiance to any Blueher acting from information received by the traitor Burmont was hastening withi80,000 troops to join Wellington. Napoleon at the head of 60,000 unexpectedly encountered him. After one of the most terrible conflicts Ever waged the prussians fled utterly routed leaving 20,000 sweltering in their blood and 10,000 prisoners in the hands of Napo ipod. Adney obeyed his orders the prussian army would have perished without the escape of a Man. But As Ney approached quatre bras in a dark night of storm and floods of Fain and through an Ocean of mire he allowed Bis exhausted troops to Stop. A few Miles before reaching that All important Point which he intended to take with the earliest morning Light. He sent word that the Post was already in Hie pos session. Wellington at a Ball in Brus sets turned Pale with dismay As he heard of the approach of Napoleon. It was fifteen Miles from Brussels to a Piatra bras. Fully aware of the importance of that Post he instantly dispatched a division to occupy through the whole night these troops pressed along the Miry Road min Gnu the r tumult with the Roar of the tempest. In the morning Ney in a consternation found that the in. Gosh. Were of the Post. The was spent m the most bloody desperate and unavailing efforts to regain it. The anguish of key m View of or irreparable f Ait was awful. The. Might of the 16tli night of darkness. Napoleon at Lig Ney ten Miles Dis bras. Was baffled bleed Gand exhausted Blueher w the his broken battalions consequently escaped and retreated towards Wayre. Where be by reinforcements a Papoleo i ser t Gifu by with 30.000 men to pursue turn. Wei i Morton fell Back to Waterloo to be joined by his prussian allies. Such was the state of affairs morning of the 17th of june dawned upon these drenched armies. Napoleon leaving Grouchy to pursue Blitcher passed Over to quatre bras joined his troops with those of Ney and with this combined Force of 70,000 followed Wellington to the spacious Plain of Waterloo. Wellington had Here skilfully Post Edh is troops of an extended Ridge and was anxiously awaited the arrival of Blueher. It was the night of the 17th, dark and Rainy when Napoleon reached the Field. For eighteen hours to had not indulged in a moment of repose or received any nourishment All the night the rain fell in torrents As the emperor stationed his army for the. Battle of the Morrow. Wellington a Force has been variously estimated at from 72,000 to90,-000 men. Napoleon had from 65,000 to 75,000. The morning of the 18th dawned lurid and Stormy. It was the Sabbath. The undulating Plain of Waterloo was a vast wheat Field. Soaked with rain and Cut up by the wheels and the tramp of these armies it now resembled a quagmire. At 8 of clock the Clouds broke and the Sun shone out brilliantly. At half past ten the troops were All in their positions the hospitals established in the rear and the surgeons with splinters knives and saws ready for their melancholy work. At 11 o clock the carnage commenced. The English with their formidable batteries were extended along the Ridge of a gentle Elevation about a mile and a half in the French from on opposing Ridge not an eighth of a mile Distant were forming in solid columns and charging the British lineup to the very muzzle of their guns. Hour after hour the murderous fire continued each party apparently As indifferent to bullets balls and shells As if they had been snowflakes. About the Middle of the afternoon the Victory seemed to be decided in favor of Napoleon. In Many places great gaps had been Cut through the British lines and fugitives in broken bands were flying in dismay towards Brussels. It is said that Wellington was in anguish deeming the Battle lost and that he wiped the cold sweat from his brow saying a would that Blueher or night were just at this time the Quick Eye of the emperor discerned far off upon the right an immense mass of 60,000 men rapidly emerging from a Forest and descending upon the Plain. He hoped that it was Grouchy. to have been. It was Blueher. Napoleon had now but 50,000 men exhausted by exposure marching and Many hours of the most desperate fighting. Wellington with the reinforcement of Blucher a fresh troops had 100,000 to oppose to him. Twenty thousand of the French soldiers wore now either dead or wounded. But 50,000 remained to oppose 100,000. Every thing now depended upon the Success of a desperate charge before the prussians could reach the Field. The Imperial guard was immediately brought Forward. Napoleon wished to Iead it but yielding to the Earnest solicit of his staff surrendered the command to Ney. In two columns this band which had never moved but to Victory advanced against the batteries of the foe. Both armies for a moment rested to behold the Sublime spectacle. Not a drum boat not a Bugle sounded and not a word was uttered. Sternly they strode on till within a few Yards of the Cannon loaded to the muzzle. There was a Flash a Roar and a Cloud of smoke shut the Jelm Batanus from View but within that Cloud the rawas incessantly Tho Glam and the Thunder of wars most dreadful storm. At the same moment the prussians came thundering upon the Field a gust of wind for a moment swept away the smoke and the anxious Eye of Napoleon beheld that his guard had disappeared. A mortal paleness spread Over the Cheek of Napoleon and a panic seized every heart. A segue of horror ensued which humanity shudders to contemplate. Napoleon threw himself into a Small Square which he bad kept As a Reserve and urged it into the deepest throngs of the enemy that he might perish with the guard Cambrone seized the bridle of his horse saying a sire death shuns you. You will but by made a yielding to these solicitations re reluctantly retired. The remnant of his guard bade him Adieu shouting Vive Vemta erbium a they were soon surrounded and called upon to sur Render. Cambrone returned the immortal reply a the guard Dies it never Surre rider a few discharges of grape from tue surrounding batteries Cut them a Down thus perished the old guard of Napoleon and thus terminated the Battle of Waterloo.

Second specifications that about the 1st of Only 1661, prisoner being an alien enemy and. In the ser vice of the United states did Lurk in around and about the armies and fortifications of the Confederate states at Memphis in the state of Tennessee. The prisoner was defended by Hance and Williams who introduced a number of witnesses in his behalf. The court having maturely Conraid erod the evidence adduced and two. Thirds concurring therein they found the prisoner guilty of the charge. First specifications guilty. Second specifications not guilty. Whereupon two thirds of the court concurring it Weis adjudged that the accused a suffer death by on 25th the proceedings findings and sentence of the court were approved by the commanding general of the department of Henrico who ordered that the sentence should be executed under the direction of the Provest marshal on the 29th Day of april Between the hours of 6 and 12 of clock m. On the announcement of his approaching Fate the prisoner As we hear grew defiant thinking no doubt that he would not be hung. He also said he could make several parties in the War department a shake in their jacket so by his revelations but he made none up to his last hour. Learning monday night that there was no show for him he became completely unnerved. He was married to the fair grounds As Early As six of clock yesterday morning by capt. Aiex Ander but prior to that time received a visit from Rev. Or. he asked the Clergyman to read the psalms of David invoking vengeance on his enemies. He refused and Webster grew indignant causing the Clergyman to take an Early departure. When brought to the Gallows the prisoner was visibly affected by the sight of the preparations observable and shuddered when he looked at his coffin. After the rope was adjusted round his neck prayer was offered up by Rev. D. D. Hoge. At the conclusion a Black Cap was drawn Over his eyes he having previously bid Farewell to several persons standing by. Thesis Nal being Given the trigger that sustained the drop was drawn and it struck against the up rights with a loud sound. Owing to defective Cotton rope the noose slipped and Webster fell on his Back to the the half hung and partially stunned Man was speedily raised and assisted up and a new rope being ready he was soon swinging in accordance with his sentence. This occurred at Twenty two minutes past eleven of clock a fifteen minutes later we left the ground but the party was still suspended. He died in about one minute. Webster who had plenty of Gold and Confederate state Treasury notes gave it All to his wife the night before his execution. He was in the employment of one of the departments Here As a letter Carrier Between this City and Maryland. It is said How True we know not that he used to take the letters received Here to Washington where they were copied and the answers received were served in. The same Way thus being used As evidence against the parties As Many of them have found to their Cost by subsequent arrest and incarceration in Northern forts. Suspicion was first excited against the prisoner by Tho style of his evidence against Lewis and Scully and they let the cat out of the bag on him after their conviction. Mrs. Webster who was arrested along with her Hub find As a spy is still at Castle Godwin but will no doubt be sent out of the confederacy. Webster is the first Man executed Here As a spy. Perhaps it.

The crowd had gained such proportions and were so eager to witness the scene that he was compelled to leave. The throng could not by kept off however. They pressed around him and wherever he went hundreds followed him. He was a the observed of All observers and it was with the greatest difficulty that he could move through the Market. Fifteen minutes were spent in walking about when he paused in front of a Coop of chickens.
