Il’hlladclphia Ktcortl.l Here we are, well along in the second week of May, and nobody killed with s bass ball. Everythin} is backward this season. Colonel Augustus Clioplcigli, late of Her Majesty’s Indian army, lives in a stately retii*cmcnt ujion his snug little estate in one of the pleasantest of the home counties. From an outsider’s point of view, the colonel seemed to possess most Uiings which are generally considered to constitute mundane happincs.s. His liver had survived pawnees, curries and a tropical sun intact; his income was amule; ho belonged to two or three good Ijon-donclub.<i; he had an excellent cellar ot wine; he was a J. P., respected by his neighbors and worshipiHl by his tenants; and he rode to cover on the best of cattle. Yet with all this, the colonel had two eternally grinning skeletons in his cupboard. The first was the possession of a iie'cr-do-weel sou, and the second was the non-possession of a wife. Augustus Ohopleigh, Jr., although a ne’cr-do-wccl iu the eyes ot a parent who was more rigid and precise than are most gentlemen who have breathed the atmosphere of barracks and cantonments during the best part of their lives, was, after all, but an ordinary, “every-day young man.” He betted a little, it is time; he belonged to a club where play was sonictimcs high of an evening; he could drink his claret like a man; he was a connoisseur in cigai-s; no possessed two or three long tailors’ bills, and he was given to staying in town for a week at a time. Still, after all, what could be expected of a high-spirited young fellow who had received a first-rate education, and was therefore unfitted for any serious walk in life; who was goml looking, who dressed well, who found life at stately Dnm Dum Hall a little monotonous at times, and who had a handsome annual allowance? But in the eyes of the Colonel all these little peculiarities were heinous crimes, and Uic poor old gentleman, as ho pondered in tno solitude of what he called his “study,” saw very clcarlv that unless the youn» man was settled in life with a well-hi’cd, wcll-conncctcd girl, he would infallibly follow, at headlong pace, that broad road which leads to destruction. Often alone at Dum Dum Hall, deprived of the society of his son, and not caring very especially for that society when offered, it was hardly to be wondered at that the Colonel yearned for a suitable partner in his exile. The memory of the departed Mrs. Chopleigh could hardly be said to he yet green, for she had siiccuiuhed to an aggravated attack of jungle fever some twenty years before, when Augustus, junior, was hut a stiuppliag in plaid dresses and hare legs. It might be said that the remedy was easy. Why didn’t the Colonel take unto himself a second Mre.Chopleigh ? There were plenty of eligible spinsters who would* have jumiicd at an offer from such a fi'esh-faccd, active, wealthy gcntlciiiau, who was little beyond the prime of life. There was, however, an almost invincible obstacle. Unlike most military men, Colonel Chopleigh was painfully shy; IKJi’haps remembrances of the de-larted Mrs. Chopleigh, who was cnown as the Dum Dnm Tartar, had driven out the youthful assurance which had won her; at any rate, the flutter of a petti-oat awakened feelings within the gallant Colonel’s breast which were not to be stirred by a horde of yelling, mutinous SejKiys, or by the stiffest bullfinch in the county. He had loved at a distance a score of times, but he had never placed himself within speaking reach of tbe various objects of his affections. Suddenly matters took a different turn. A young lady of strikingly prepossessing appearance—Milliccnt Van- app John, only (laughter of the Ucv. Aloy-siuB Vánjohn, the only vicar—had been espied by the Colonel proceeding UP the lane which ran parallel with his grounds, as he paced along his favorite shrubbery walk. Being on his own projMjrty had inspired him wilh courage; he had gazed at her, and she had blushed and looked down. He hurried into the house, and shut himself up in his study. “I am flfly-flvo,” he said to himself., “I am—well, I am well-looking; my waistcoat is of decent girth ; 1 have a good complexion ; and a inaiids only as old as he feels. Why shouldn’t 1 ? I may Imj called an old fool. Well, there’ arc plenty of older fooii in the world. 1—wcil—1 will I” Miss Vanjohn was wnlljing at the identical s|K>t at the identical hour ilic next day, and the next day after that, and so on for more than a week, and each day the same little comedy lart ngs Internal revenue collections for the ten months of the fiscal year amount to |90,. 104.745; ■ UtfcreoHe of |10,000,027 as com-pariHl with the corie^poiullna iierlrxl of iho previous yo«r. the prlncitial decrease being on tnbaeuo.

Did Miss Vanlohu walk up that lane SO regularly with a tixod purpow? Of course she did. Punetnally at 4 o’clock, every after noon Mr. Xugnstiia Chopleigh, Jr., met her at the top of it. It was rather an otld thing to do=--thc daughter of a well known parson meeting inh rosa the son of an equally well known Colonel. The following conversa'.ion exnlalns It: ‘•Oh, Gill I I begin to feel so aw fully guilty, meeting yon like this! Why can’t wo love each other openly'( There’s nothing to be ashamed of iu it.” “For more than one reason, my darling. I’ve a had reputation down here; all fellows have in country places who go up to town, belong to a club, drivc#lown to Ascot, take medicinal B. and S.’s, and so on. If the old man were to know that I was spooning yon he’d rush off to your father and warn him. If your father were to know he’d rush off to mine and tell him that I Avasn’t a fit aspirant for the hand of his daughter.” “But is your father such a terrible old gentleman, then? What is he like ? I’ve never seen him.” “No, I don’t suppose yon have. He fights shy of anything with a petticoat on it like the plague. I’ve known him cut a good run short because there were ladies alone with him in the same field, and he Avas afraid that in case of an accident he’d have to assist them. He’s a tall old felloAV, with a fresh complexion and a gray mustache, and always wears shepherd’s plaid trowsers summer and winter. Why, Avhat’s the matter?” “O dear I O dearl Gns, don’t go on, please don’t or I shall die of laughter.’^ “Why, what is there to laugh at in it, Millie? By Jove, if you saw him in a temper you wouldn t laugh.” “Why, my dearest Gus!—he’s—he’s iu loA’c with me.” “The old boy—my father—in love with yon ? Nonsense, my dear—nonsense, I say. Why, he’s more afraid of a girl than an earthquake, or a boa-constrictor, or anything. What on earth makes you think that he is in love with you ?” “Why, Gus, every day when I come along he’s Avalking in the garden. I’ve ahvays taken him for the steward, or some one, and he makes such eyes at me. Oh, you’d laugh if yon could see him. Í try not to, but I knoAv I blush and look aAvfully sillv.” “By Jove, Milly, it’s no laughing matter—that it isn’t A man’s father his rival in love!” That evening Mr. Gns appeared at home at an nnusnally early hour. “Well,” AV'as the greeting of his ))arcut, “you’re not here so precious early, with that goody-goody face, for notldng, I’m sure, you young scamp! When A’ou tprn up punctually to dinner I kiioAV von Avaiit something out of me. But, mind, not another halfpenny do you get. I’ve already advanced your quarter’s alloAvance, and if you’v’c been squandering it on actresses and race meetings, and unlimited loo and dinners at Bristol, I Avon’t help you. And not only that, sir, but I’m going to put a stop to it. Once for all—and Augustus Clmpleigh’s a man of his Avord—I don’t care if Stnlty or Golding, or Moses, or any of them come down and dun you at this very door, not a rujiec do you get out of nic.” ‘•What a deuce of a hurry you’re in, father I” said the young man. “I don’t Avant any money.” “Well, Avhat the dickens is it then?” said the old gentleman, seeing that his son looked confused. “\\rj)y_well, I’m in love, that’s all,” replied Gns, “and I’m going to be married to the best girl in England— a perfect lady, Avell bred, Avcll connected, and ” The effect of this speech upon the old Colonel Avas electrical. He jumped lip from his end of the tabic, almost upset Parker, Avho was handing him the chillies, rushed toward his son and shook his hand heartily, his face beaming with excitement and pleasure, as he exclaimed: “You’re sure of what yon say ? It isn’t Fifinc of the Jolity, hey ? A lady, Avell bred, well connected ” “I’a e l)ccii a hit of a scamp, perhaps, father,” said the young man, “but I’ve never gone in for low form: so, Avhcn 1 tell you she’s all that could be wished you must believe me.” “Of course I Avlll; of course I do!” roared the Colonel. “Who is she ?” “Well, I don’t want to give you her name just now, fhr many reasons, but you may take my word for it that she’s nobody to be ashamed of,” said Gus. “All right; all right; I won’t ask any more questions. 8o long us yon are going to steady down with a go(Hl lady-liko wife I don’t care,” saitl his father. “By gad, Gus, I thought you Avcre going to bo a millstone round niy neck for the remainder of my life. And now, niy boy, you’ve astonished me. I’m going to astonish you. What do you think is about the most un-likolv thing I should do?” “Give up hunting!” replied Gns, “or sell your orchids! or put up for the county! or ” “No, no; iiotlilng of that kind,” said the Colonel, chuckling. “I’m— I'm going to he married too.” The son affected the greatest astonishment. Tlie (!olonel continued: “But look here, my boy; it won’t interfere Avith your iirospccts, and— ami, when I say I’m going to be married, I mean that I have my eye on someone, and I I’kther think, alioml that some one has a reciprocal eye on me. I’m not Hiich an old bird, cli!’’ “Not a bit of it,” rcjilicd Gm-; “and may 1 a«k who the ^rtuiiate object of your attention is?” “Well,” answered the C(»loncl, Isughiiig, “I’ve a good mind not to tell you, you dog, a» you kec|) iiic In the dark about your Inamoriita. But I will. Do you know Miss Van-john ?” “Tall girl, brown hair, brown eyes ?” a-iked Guh, innoccntlv. “Yes, yes—that’s the ouel Shea going to be Mrs. Chopleigh the second,” said the Colonel, rubbing his hands gleefully. “I think—ahem! that if I can screw up my pluck I shall speak to her to-inorrow.” That evening the Reverend Alov-sius Vanjohn received an unexpected visitor in the sliajie of Augustus Chopleigh. Urged by the desperate aspect of matters, the young man had resolved to face the terrible parson, as he belicA^ed him to he, and to lay the state of affairs before him. To his glad surprise the reverend gentleman, Avho Avas really a go<Kl fellow and thought very Ávcll of Gus, laughed heartily at the thought of the Colonel s suit, and promised Gus tliat Milliccnt should marry him Avhcn and where he pleased. “1 say Gus,” roared the Colonel, as they Avorc leaving the smoking room for bed; promise me you’ll bring Mrs. Chopleigh here directly after you’re married.” A fcAv dap after Milliccnt Van-johii was quietly and unostentiously made Mrs. An^nstns C lopleigh in London. Faithful to his Avora the young man wrote informing his father of his marriage, and telling him that he should run down on the following day to introduce his bride to her new father. The Colonel was at dinner, that is to say, he was playing at dinner for what Avith his OAvn consuming passion and the eager exi>ectation with Avhich he awaited the arrival of his son and his dan4hter-ln-law, he sent aAvay almost nufastcd every dish that was set before h^i. 'The door-bclB rang. The colonel jumped up to anbwer it himself, but checked the movement. “No, no,” lie said; “I’ll have it a surprise to the last.” Gns entered. “Here I am, father!” ho said. “Y"es, yes; but avhere’s -?” said the Colonel impatiently. Gns Aveiit out and reappeared with Milliccnt. The Colonel staggered at first, and something like a froAVu gathered on his hroAv. But he recovered himself, and Avith a smile that illnmiiiatcd his Avholc face, said, addressing Milli-cent: “I am indeed delighted to welcome you to mv house as a daughter.” Then turning to his son, he added: “Gns, my boy, you’ve had an uncommonly narroAV es(ia|)cl” Observations.

The recent battles Avliich lie had fought and gained had made liim famous tiironghout the land. We Averc prepared to see a Avarrlor with “gold lace and plume,” of noble carriage, and fierce countenance. Our astonishment can be imagined Avhcn Avc beheld a plain old fanner with not the first inilihiry insignia alrout him, wearing a witie brim Mexican sombrero and ordinary citizen’s clothes. There Avas nota subordinate around his headquarters that Avas not better dressíHl. Verily his name, “Rough and Ready,” Avas appropriate. He was rather short in stature for his size and apparent Aveight, with a face that indicated stern decision and untiring energy. Hie features Avcre not handsome, but by no means repulsive. A pleasant expression seemed to dAvell there Avhen he was off duty. His face gave no evidences of cultivation. Shaggy eyebrows, rather a prominent nose and round face; if any landmarks of intelligence were CA'er there the rough camp life the old soldier had led for so many years had obliterated them. General Tavlor w as a clumsy rider, mounting and dismounting his horse like an old farmer, only accustomed to horseback exercise Avhcn he bad occasion to ride to toAvn once in a Avhile. Yoiir corrcsiiomlcnt is not advised as to Avhat Avcre the religious preferences of General ’faylor. He had fallen into the habit so common in the army, and iwintedly emphasized his remarks as occasion required. He had none of that bombast about him that even,some of his loAvest subordinates nianifpsted.* In social conversation Avilh his officers he seemed to forget his rank, and oftentimes had a kind Avord for tlie jioor private. On one occasion wc had to cross one of those SAvift-ruiiiiing mountain streams, the water of Avhich was over Avaist-decp, and a sick and weakly-looking soldier was standing on the hank, I supjiosc meditating Avhcther he slionld take the venture or not. General Tayior rode by and saw the situation, assisted the imor soUIior up beliind him and carried him over the Avatcr. I saw that, and heard that soldier long after the Avar brag that he had “rode behind the FresidenL” General Taylor Avas always in the thickest of the battle, and seemed to be as destitute of fear as a rock. He rode a milk-white horse—Old Whitey —which seemed as cluiuhy as his master, and Irom long association seemed to have adopted some of his peculiarilies. General Taylor rode Old Whitey throughout the battles of Monterey and Biicna Vista. He was dressed very [ilainly; AVorc a common soft hut and an old faded cassimcrc coat, Avhich his old soldiers Informed us he had Avorn for many years. This coat received its first Avoimd at Buena Vista, Avhere two musket balls, one about three inches below the otiicr, passed through both lapels, 'riie Avriter, thougli Avith General Taylor's coinniuud for nearly a year, never suav him dressed in full uniform, cxccqit on the occasion of the dc[>artnrc of the remains of our regiment for home. We had struck our tents, packed our knujisacks, and the last act of oiir departure from Walnut Springs was to take leave ot onr old chief. We Avcrc formed in line, and lie came out in our front dressed in regulation uniform, cap-a-nic. He was visibly embnrrussed, and not a heart in ony cominaiid but Avhat Avas touched. With some awkward schoolboy gestures he muiiaged to say “that he hoiicd that iu private life avc would make as brilliaut records as Ave had in the service of our country” (or sumcthiiig very nearly to that cft’ect), and bade us farewell. it have any idea of its extent.
