The music wandered off from Flotow to near er home, playing the "Star Spangled Banner" in bold breesy bursts. The large, long hall was filled with the sweet sharp shocks of the cymbals, the bright blowing of the buglen, and the great drum-beats rolling through. People let tnrir Ihnnrhli flnv t? mut tli* as suited them beat, out upon the piaiits, in the ptriors, or in the large, long hall. Walking up and down the latter, girl voice went singing the first line, "Oh, say, can you see by the dawn's early light!" then ceasing, beating her palms together in tiire with tne striking oymbals, she said, "Oh is.-'; it lovely?" lingering inn pretty draw upon the "lovely." The gentleman walking beside her looked down, smiling mischief, as he replied, " Very lovelv, Carlotta, sing it again." " Nonsense ' I do not mean my singing. Ah, but you know that I dont!" looking up laugh\ ing into the laughing face. He bent lower and mere meaningly returned " But I mean the singing. I like it better than the baud." " No. no, don't talk sc. but listen?ah, it is divine! divine! better than any musio in the world.

Raymond, how did you feel when the men were dropping round you at Manassas ?" "Oh, as most men feel; after the first shock and dread passes, the nerves grow steady. Thus easily we get careless of human lives." " Ah, no, I do not think it is that; I think the soul rises to the occasion. But will you go again ?" " If I can get a commission, yes. if not, no." ? Why will yen not go if you do not get a i a commission ? " Well, I don't like the associations generally as private It's too hard work, and if I ruk my life, I wsnt to choose the way." "Yes, I see,'' she answered absently, as if ! she did not half ree 1' " You would be glad to have me go, Carlotta?" bending again, with eager interest. She knew what he meant, and a llitu of erimson fused into the faint pink cheek. l and she unfurled her fan with a quick, ner? rous slide, aa the replied, " I would he glad for every man to so that can, specially those without wives and children." ' They may have mother*; yoo forgot that," he said, with an irritated, jeering sort of a laugh. But aha was very serious, almost solemn, as aha returned, " Tea, that is very trne; I didn't forget. My brother went, you kesw; and he goes again, with our mother's oonsent." " I know." That was all he said, but it was said in aofter accents, under conviction. Then in a moment more he began, "And the tie of a lover, Carlotta?" A little tinkling clash, and the pretty pearl fan was lying broker upon the floor, making grievous interruption. Stringing it to and fro, it had swung far out, and tell at a gentleman's feet, who was sitiinp on one of the aide couches. He brought it to w ?, ? ? ner, ana received a little airy "Thank you," and a smile of which ber companion looked envious. "I wonder who he is?" she exclaimed, watching tbe "gentleman" as he returned down the hall. " I've noticed him titling j there all the evening." f Have joa?" with satirie emphasis, to ' whiob she paid no attention, but went on be*dleealy: ' Yes; and did yon see what an air he has? how loftily he carries his head ? Military, too, do yoa notioe?" He must be a new arrival " ? Very likely,'' was the reply, cross enough now, and snapping two or three more sticks of the fan he had taken from her. Whereupon such aeunning little smile went flashing whiter p?ir!a than he held into view, and a~pair of merry brown eyes dropped their white curtains. for modestj'a sake. The gentleman who had been the innocent cause of all this, from his plaee on one of the side ooaobes observed the pantomime of the eonversation with an odd amile curling his heavv mostache. It was evident that he understood. On the next morning, Miss Carlotta Delevan ?in other words, Miss Charlotte, the sweet Spaniah rendering being the work of her Cuy ban nurse?migbt have been seen, somewhere after breakfast, when the balls are mostly vacant, running her little finger down the list of arrivals, as she leaned over the office desk.

So she sauntered alowly, thinking, "There's something fine about the man?not so handsome, though, as Raymond Mays; horrid name, too, 'Jones' Heigh ho'." (yawning) u I wish I bad the morning's paper. Ah! there comes Raymond; I'll ask him. Raymond," nodding and smiling her greeting, "is that tha paper yoa have ? Yes 7 Thank you'" nodding again ^ and dropping into a ohair to unfold and look T it over, talking meanwhile to Raymond, who seated himself naar. Looking down a list el oldiers, what should she come upon but those two names again. First, among the oAoara, 'Jeremiah Joaat, Captain;" then, lower down, "Vayle Ventnor, Pnrata." This Capt. Jones, how he haunted her. Jeremiah Jenes, think of that' she thought, and lauched ontri*ht. a little tinkle of merriment. " What is it so fanny, Carlotta? I eoald not find anything fanny there Yoa get all the sunshine of life what is it?" bending over. Bat Carlotta chose not to tell, so ihe pat s little slim hand between his eyes and the paper, saying, with a merry malice, "Carious*" " No; only interested in what interests yoa. I want to oateh your sunny wsy. Can't you teach me bow?" " Yes," demurely, " I'll teach you to oatoh it," rolling the paper into a ball, and tossing 4 It lightly to him He caught the paper, and the fun too, tossing it back again softly. And to and fro they . kept it going a moment, until, in a backward [ bend of her bead, all laughing and flushed, and brees*-ruffled as the need was, she recti red a glanoe of admiration from a bearded faoe looking down from an upper window opon their lauchTn2 play.

And then there rashed over her mind?"Captain Jeremiah Jones'" and another pool of laughter tinkled forth. " What does possess you, la Carlotta, this morning*" yoang Msyeqnestioned,smilingly. She drew a long faoo, and answered, "(Taptain Jeremiah Jones possesses mo, Raymond!"

The uneonacioas cause 1 of all this, standing at the office lighting a cigar, beard the merriment, and recognizing ' one voice, wondered what it was about. After dinner, a servant handed her a card : "Ward Wyman." She ran down gleefully, for Ward Wyman was an old friend, and there she found him in close conversation witn Op- 1 tain Jeremiah Jones, who was for turning away ' as the lady approaohed, but staid at the peremptory command of Mr. Wyman, and the 1 words, ' I want you two to know each other. Carlotta this is my friend Ventnor?Vayle Ventnor, Miss Charlotte Delevan." The gontleman bowed lowly, "was very happy," etc.; but Carlotta was too amazed to say a word; and all the while trying in vain to control the tk.t J: 1-J J 1 ** ojviiiujouv iuab muipicu ruunu cor mouin. Through her mind went running, "Captain Jeremiah Jones"' That night when Mays, Raymond May?, came up to their hotel she had to tell him the whole story; it was too funny to keep. How he laughed? "Why, you little goose, can't you tell an officer's dress from a private's ?" " No, indeed; how should I ?" she answered " Ventnor7 Ventnor'" he repeated. "Ward ( ?K> Wvman, who was just pas^Lg?who is this fellow'" " What fellow ?" ' This V?ntaor?" Ward Wyman twinkled with suppressed amusement. "This fellow, Mays, is the son of Richmond Ventnor. whose house you visited with me, in Paris, five years ago " " The dickens it is? What in tbe world is his son serving merely as a private for ?" i " You*must ask him." , " Why, his income must be a small fortune, J L:- * - - sou aia associations ana lamily advantages such that he might have almost any post. What does he mean?" Thus, in his surprise, Raymond Mays ran on, unoonscioas that he whs adding still more interest to the quondam Captain in the mind of Carlatta. He saw his mistake by-and-by, ; when the band struck up ''Die Schonbrun- , oer," and passing by, Vayle Ventnor, eDOOur* i/ed by the oordial smile that greeted him from la Carlotta, approached and asked her. Would she honor him with two or three turns ?" adding apologetically, "that he was scarcely a fit cavalier for a lady in his rough , soldier's costame." i D..? ?i * ?- * -" * >? v/anvua (oongQi amerentiy. and said *ocie'hing very pretty and patriotio to him as | she accepted the invitation. The fact was, Carlotta was wild with curiosity to know how inch a fortune favorite caine to be in his present position is "Vayle Ventnor. Private;" and so she determined to follow up the acquaintance until she had satisfied her Eve-!ike propensity. It wasn't a pleasant waits to one person there Raymond Mays stood chewing the cud of bitter reflection. Poor Mays! he thought he was dying for Carlotta Delevan; and perhaps he was. but it would be an easy death ? because Mays never took anything hardly, not even the small-DOX. which once visited him, leaving one white mark ?n the i aide of his handsome nose. It wasn't pleasant to see Ventnor'a splendid sliding ea?e of step j as he whirled past with Carlotta. If he had ] made a bangle ef it he ooald have forgiven < him, but that perfect movement defied oriti- \ cism. After the waits, the two strolled out upon the piasta, and here suddenly the gentle- j man reeled, and wonld have fallen had it not ( been far the alight little arm that was linked within his. He sat down, and presently explained. " I have been ill, Miss Deleran, and the change of air after the exercise made my head pin-1' Oh, you are off en furlovgh, getting well ?" < she asked, with some satisfaction. < " Exactly," her replied, not a little amused at ber direot simplieity, "off on furleugh, getting well?that's just it, Miss Delevan."

Mr. Frederick Law Olmsted the indefatigable secretary of the Sanitary Commission, bag prepared, from the voluminous reports of the agents of the association, a highly interesting and valuable abstract of results, which gives a very complete view of the condition, moral and physical, of a large part of the Union armies. The returns on which Mr. Olmsted's abstract 19 nredintiH innlnrlA knn/)i>a<l . Of these, thirty-seven were from New England, one hundred and one from the Middle States, including Virginia, Maryland, and Delaware, and sixty-two were western. As nearly as can be ascertained, about two-thirds of the volunteer army is native born, and one-third foreign bom. The average age of the privates is somewhat under twenty-five, and of the officers about thirty-four. Preliminary inspections Becm to have been conducted very carelessly; r?f 1 620 men discharged from the army of the Potomao in October, fifty-three per cent were individual;) who, under proper inspection, would never have been admitted to the army.

Ninety per cent. of the force reported on bad tents made of good canvas; and ten per cent, slept under cotton drilling or leaky oanvas. "A limited examination of the disease* of the army indicates tbat the largest proportion of those of typhoid type occur with regiments sleeping on rubber blankets, the least with those on straw or boughs; the largest proportion of catarrhal with regiments on wooden floors, the least with those on the groand; the i?i jcai. ui iucuuaLioui miu muse on wooa, mc smallest with those on straw or boughs; the largest of malarial with those on the ground) the least with those on straw wr boughs." Privies had been established in all the camps, and in eighty per cent, of the force they are kept in proper order. In seventy-seven per sent, of the camps the slops and offal are regularly removed.

Food was found to be universally good and abundant. Dosiccated vegetables are used to aome extent, but the men n*ve not learned to cook them. Company funds?obtained by the aale of surplus rations not consumed by the men, and used to purchase fresh vegetables, butter, milk. 4c., are slowly coming into praotice; but it is remarked that the volunteers are with difficulty made to understand the system? which is strange, considering the readiness with which Americans comprehend what bears nnnn thflir Anmfnrt Prnhnhlv rft?imontul o&oers do not take sufficient interest in the matter. Hospital funds exist in only a third of the regiments in the field. Only ten per oent. of the furoe inspected used cooking stores, and almost all preterred fires in trenches. The pieman is an institution in the volunteer force, and the surgeons strongly desire his abolition. Sutlers are held more mischievous than useful. Intoxloation was found oommon in only six regiment*, of two hundred, and our volunteers are believed to be more temporate than any European army. "In 31 regimenU the sutler was allowed to ell liquor. In 169 the officers reported that the sale was prohibited. In 177 it appeared that the men did, in fact, get liqaor with more or leas freedom and faoility from the sutlers or

otherwise. In 23 the insDectors were satisfied that tbe men did not often or readily obtain liquor." There if an intenae demand for reading matter. One regiment gives aiztj doiiara from its ration savings for newapapers. About one-fifth of tbe regimenta possess libraries. 143 regiments of the 200 inspected have bands; and the men are said to be very croud of them. Borne regiments support their bands.
