Night had settled down upon the army of the Potomac, and, except in the tent of a General. quiet reigned in the camp. The river relied placidly along, u though no hoatile forces lined its banks, and Washington looked peaceful aa if no devil were trying to pluck tome stars from the flag which floated over the Capitol. But the measured tramp of the sentinel, and the quick, low-toned challenge to the straggler hurrying to quarters, told the tory of the struggle that was going on. In the tent of the General, grouped round a small table on which were spread maps of the rtAnntrw aat aavaval nffiaaM A ing a point opon which opinions differed. It wu an informal council ot war, and the officer in command, while he listened carefully, refrained from giving his judgment in the matter?flattering first this one with symptoms of agreement with him, or ecmplimentinx that one on the olearness of his views, while he ? drew from some of the more bashful of the party what they thought. To none was he more polite than to a young man of fine address, whose shoulder straps claimed for him the rank of oolonel. No greater contrast could be found than between the faces of the Qeneral and his jubordinate Both had keen eyes, and would be called handsome men anywhere; but the features of the elder wore an open, manly look, while those of the younger bore a sinister cast, th*t did much to destroy his otherwise good looks. The oolonel was evidently ill at ease, and inougn ae returned tne polite attentions of the General u a gentleman would, be did not vesture to meet the steady gaze that accompanied the honeyed words. Just at the moment the discussion was at the hottest, the sentry announced a messenger. ''Show him in," Mid the Oeneral, and the man entered with a respectful salute. * ' We will resume this to-morrow, gentlemen," he said, bowing to the party, who, taking the hint, immediately dispersed to their several quarters. "Well, Hardy, what success?" said the Oeneral, turning to the scoot, who steed leaning on his rifle, fie was well worth studying ?a tali, lean man. with stooping shoulders, a face thin and sallow, with rambling legs, but x his eyes giistqMd as if on fire. His body, ungainly as it wal; gare promise of great strength, ana me long sweep or bia arm, joined to the grasp of his immense hand, as he caressingly held bis weapon to bis breast, would hare warned his foes that it was unsafe to try conclusions with him at too close quarters. On very line of his countenance, marked as it was with inexpressible sadness, was written honesty and firmness, so that yoa felt what he could be trusted. 44 A leeile, Gineral," he said, looking caut<r>u?ly about. 11 Be we alone ?" he added, in \rj uudex tone lh' General stepped to the door of tho tent, ut nothing c >ul'- oo seen except the sentry icing hi? n->nal beat. Tbe scout, however, tn not satisfied, and walking briskly out he approached the rear of the tent, when a hasty f >otstep was heard retreating. He listened oarofully, at the same time keeping his trusty r:ae ready tor use, bat the footsteps died * ay in the distance mod he retained to the tent. "Some drunken soldier, Hardy." Mid the General, a little annoyed at the occurrence. 44 It ?hall be looked to to-morrow.'1 ? "May be so," said the aeoat, leaning on his rifle and refusing to be seated. ,4Yit his pace war mighty stiday for a man in liquor." "Well. heisgooenow, soletustobusineM," said the General, a little testily. " Watch D'Arblay, Gineral," Mid the scout. " He's in high favor where I've been to-day, and that ain't no great praise for a Union man " 44 Did you reach the Tillage, then," asked the General, his eyes fixed upon Hardy's face. " I was there afore twelve o'olook. and by lock fell in with an Alabamy regiment. So u i was real > xrginny?ana a mocking smile lit ap the sallow face?" I mixed ia with the boys." "Too are yenturesome, Hardy,*' said the other. " If they catch you they will (how no mercy. Already your name is known the country round, and a reward offered for yon." " They can't hurt me no worse than they her, Qineral. I went by the homestead today, and the ashes are there yet. The fire , that burned the old place went to my heart, and I ain't afeard of being ketched till my work's done." " Do they know how strong we are in this place T" asked the General. i " To a man, Oineral. And they're a chuckling mightily over it. 'Taint no secret at all, tad they don't make no bones of saying they her good friends -in your camp. Did I tell you to watch D'Arblay, Oineral?" and the aoout fingered the lock of his rifle, looking out upon the white city that lay before him. Suddenly he started and threw himself in the shadow of the curtain which hang at the door of the tent. A moment he stood so, and than, swiftly bringing his rifle to his shoulder, a quick report was heard, and Hardy turned to the tent. The startled sentry hastened to inquire the cause, but the imperturbable old man carelessly explained that he had only fired off his load, and, as his eccentricity was well known, that ended it. But he bent low and whispered to the General?" Keep wateh on D'Arblay?a close watch, Gineral," and gave rent to a chuckle that shook his body till his bones rattled An hour later and the little camp that lay mm an outpost of the great army was stirring with new life. No rapid beat to arms roused >1.- - ? - im uwpmg suiaiers. oat swift memnnri moved among the white tents, and at their summon* the men shook slumber from their eyelids and eagerly took their positions in the ranks. A secret expedition, and at night?of all things the greatest delight of the trne soldier?so much wit clear; bnt in whst direction, or against what force, none knew, yet the ignorance did not cheek the undisguised pleasure of the men, as they promptly eheyed the "fall in" of the orderly. It wu enough that they were in the enemy's conntry, on soil once sacred, hut now deeecrated by the footstep* of rebellion, and so the blow was effec*n.l tk? ? ?'I ?iv? ?W?. fcJl With tiie officers it might be a little different, and Mm* hastening to the General's tent for inatruetiona, were mot bj on oid who cove haaty information for the marshalling of the forcee. No one waa trotted with the secret of k the movement, md they who peraiatontly * eoaght the oommanding officer found at tho entrance of hia tent only aa old man loaning on hia rifle Thoeo who had been at tho oouneil roadily connected tho lingular individual with tho preocnt movement; while thev who for the * flrat time looked upon hia tall form, appearently bent with age and infirmity, did not dream that thla waa tho aoout whose deed* were tho theme of ooavenation about the camp firee, 1 and whoao eacapea puaalod at once both friend HI IO? Hardy stood watching the gathering of the men with a grim smile playing about his lips To the nnm"rons Inquiries that poured in upon him he rave no sua wer save that he kn?? nothiag, ana the queetioaer returned ne wiser than he eaaae. At lass everything was ready, and the order given to march. Stealthily creeping oat among the shadow* of the night went a I little baad of fl/taen hundred men, not one of whom knew whtra ha was bound. Just a* the laat company left the camp, the General eame to the door of hi> tent and stretched oat his hand to th ? scout. Hardy took it like a mas who fait Limsalf the paar of an amroror. "i have run a great risk, Hardy," ba said. "If yoa hare deceived ma"?ha atop pad, for area the starlight aaoJd not hide the painful expneeriea that stole serosa the scout's faae? "or,If yoa hare deoahrad yourself, tfca ion aaonce may be terrible no leu to these brave fellows than to me." "I hev told yeu the truth, Oineral." he said, proudly. "We her fifteen hundred men, and they ain't leas than four thousand. It mought >j be a hard fight, but we kin git the best of 'em for all that. But ef you've any misgivings, Oineral. taint too late yit. It's easy oallin'of 'em back agin, though the boys looked mighty & veil pleased at the ohance for a brush 'with b the critters.' " !|A t this moment there was a halt in the ezpe- ia ition, having reached a fork in the road. The General hastily wrung the seout's hand and as V he said, hurriedly, " No, no, I trust you and 4 will not repent," Hardy returned the pressure * till the more delioate hand of the officer felt as G if it were in a vice, and immediately pressed t forward to the van of the detachment When '1 he reached it, the road became clear, and at the * cumuua ? wrwira : u* i roups muMN on. How fared It witk the rebels dmrtmg these ? stirring matters among their enemies? Peace- ? folly slumbering among the hills, and dream ing of anything bat an attack from a foe they c knew to be so inferior in numbers. They were v a motley let. For the most part composed of r that class known as "poor whites" in the South, * strangely clad and but half disciplined, they would have dispersed from their own internal n discord, had not their officers restrained them t Deserters from the Federal army, in which t they bad found both education and subsistence, a they turned their talents against their oountry, P and gave a life to the rebellion it could not have had otherwise. On this evening, while the men sat smoking c about their fi-es. alternately asserting the superiority of their own States and cursing the e cowardly Yankees, as they called all Federal } soldiers, in not very choice language, a knot of officers were gathered in consultation. ti " Has invthinir h??n hnnrrl frnm D'lrKlon t to-day?" asked one with a colonel's ttr^f upon ^ bis shoulders. " Nothing," said a captain, to whom the question was addressed "Oar messenger e brought a note from him yesterday, that a e council of war would be held to-night. We shall hear fr<"m him to-morrow." " Yes, yes; I saw it," said the colonel. "I 8 hope they will resolve to fight. I'm getting } tired of this inaction. Who is this Hardy be ^ cautions us about ?" " One of the enemy's scouts," said the cap- b tain. "They tell marvelons tales of him, and k even our tents ring with his exploits. This & very spot was his farm, and yonder chimneystack the remains of his house. The man was ^ a tory. and barely e?eaped with his life." The colonel was thoughtful a moment. "Was t| this the man whose family? Well, never f< mind, such things must be in War Keep a a lookout for him, and, if caught, give him short t shrift?ho may be dangerous." Just *hen the C tattoo was beat, and with a courteous goodnight the officers senarated. I wish we coufd get along without such " fellows as D'Arblay," said one young officer to ri another, as they strolled along the camp. "I don't mind killing Yankees, hut I like a little a fair play about it. This game of his can't last very long, and he'll be coming among us." T "Don't bo too nice," said the other. "By and by you'll be abusing Burton for this Ilardy ' business. I hear be ana his Arkansas man did A that nioe little job." t< " For Qod's sake, don't talk so," said the m other, shuddering. "I have not heard all, but m 'twas a brutal thing." ' You'll want a dictionary to give an adjeo- [r tire strong enough when you do hear it all. They say the old man refused to haul down his w ?ag ind shot one of our men, when they fired I 0 the house, and only Hardy escaped. Burton f< mtru\A KT anil saw i* ? u? ~-.w? ? j ?m ?? ? ?v uvuv. auo nuuiou ueaicu back by the bayonets did not scream, but taroed hopelessly inward. It is a mystery how ?' Hardy got away, bat he has been seen since, * and lives only for reTenge. But, as the colonel ,* says, such things must be in war. Oood night!" and they parted at the entrance of a tent. v While quiet reigns in the rebel camp, the little band we have seen set out under the scout's guidance is cautiously advancing. On \ throught belts of woodland, over hills, and ? across some of the small streams with which the country abounds, they march silently but 11 surely on their prey. a The soout looked like a new man. Hi3 tall form was no longer bent or r*th*r I* AiA appear so, as he strode along at the head of the column The sallow face wag lit up with intelligence, and a gleam of ferocity shot from his a eyes. The road was as familiar to him as the v beaten paths about his lost homestead, but he trusted nothing to chance. Not a sound escaped , his practiced ear, nor an unusual appearance the keen scrutiny of his eyes, and more than ? once he called a halt, while he reconnoitered 0 in the darkness. a At last they reached the foot of a hill, when t Hardy whispered to the oolonel in command, 1 and while the troops rested on their arms, he 1 went forward alone. ?
