Bl'YISO A WEDDISG CAKE. ''Letters, sir, from Pos' Office!" "Very well, Sambo, put 'em down and take yourself off!" I had just finished my breakfast, and the tir.y ckoclattere, with the bachelor service of transparent china, still stood on the damaskdraped mand-table. It was a bright little room, with its white and gold paper, and highheftfel grate, on the very gray light of this chill December morning, when the air was thick wirh noilselessly falling snow-flakes; and this cQutr&st between the bitter atmosphere withovt and the tropical warmth of my own special nook, gave me an additional consciousness of satisfaction, as I leaned back in my oaair ana proceeaea to examine my correspondence. Loe Worcester wants to know if I can oome to tea this evening. Of coarse I can. Le?'a wife is a perfect little rosebud, and one, besides, who don't believe in cashiering all her husband's bachelor friends. And then I rather iiktf that brown-eyed sister-in-law of bis. Yes. I'll go, certainly. Halloo?here's a letter from my brother in Glenfield! I unfolded the document eagerly, scarcely able, at first, to credit the tidings it revealed. ' Well here is a pretty state of things! Going to be married, claims my conerratula tions, says that Mary (who the dickens is Mary ?> is in great tribulation about the wedding-cake; affair to come off on Wednesday and no cake to be had for love or money! Will I be the best fellow in the world, and send down one from D'Artier's?" I elansed at the date of the letter. It had been delayed for several days on the road, and there wu not a minute to be lost. I rose, mechanically, and put on my hat and ?loak, giving more heedful gate at the various directions about icing, weight acd decorations, which acoompanied Tom's closely written epistle, before I sallied forth boldly into the street on my novel errand. It was just about one o'clock, the snow had ceased falling, and the sun shone brilliantly. D'Artier's was full, of course; there was at least a doien ladies that I knew sitting at the tiny marble tables. I tried to a&sume an air of easy impudence, as if I had only eome in for pound of chocolate almonds, but it was no use; I could not disguise the latent sheepishn*c? nf mv aifuu?f oa T aonnha 4a M V* *M J *W|/VV? A U|' IV L11P counter. "How can I serve you, sir?" demanded the trim damsel, who presided over the saccharine treasures I muttered something under my moustache, feeling a hot blush suffuse my whole countenance. Why wouldn't those inquisitive women-kind attend to their ice-creams ? ' Cake, sir' Certainly. For a party, sir ? Pound cake, lemon, almond?" "No, no," I bawled ; "I want a tceddtngcake !'* "O, I beg your pardon, sir," tittered the atrocious shop-woman. Was it reality, or did I only fancy that the titter was echoed among the bonnets and furs beyond ? However that might have been, the mere apprehension wad sufficient to throw me into a cool perspiration. The n?xt moment, however, the counter was heaped with various temples of glistening white sugar, some wreathed with make-believe roses, some surmounted with candy cupiis, others pure white masses of icing. I surveyed them m a state of hopeless bewilderment. "P*rb?ns. air. it annlil h? bntf?r if th? lnriv 1?J ? J -- ? could came with jou to elect," hazarded my enemy behind the counter. I eoull endure thn badgering no longer, but pounced upon a gigantic pyramid of sugarlilies from which peeped up a tiny alabaster eupid. "I will take this; what is the price?" "Fifteen dollara, sir!" I laid down the money, and jiever experienced so delicious a sensation of relief as at the moment when I thrust the cupid, packed in a round wooden box. under my arm and rushed out of the establishment. How gladly I delivered it to the exDress azent. who tuaaed it on one side, as carelessly as if the transmission of wedding cakes were a matter of everyday occurrence! "How d'ye do, Golde? When is it to come off?"' 4;When is what to come off?" queued I, eoneiderabiy puisled at my friend Atherton's address. 'Your wedding, to be sure! Ah, you're a sly dog, to keep us all in the dark so long!" "You can't have been much more in the dark that I am at this moment, Atherton. What on earth do you mean ?" Bat Atherton only wagged his head knowingly, and rushed off in pursuit ef a stage, say in* something of which I only caught the disconnected fragments ' my wife" and "D'Artier'i" '-Hang that wedding-cake!" was my internal ejaculation. _ w a . as i pnrsuea my speculative way a uny gloved hand was held out trom a passing carriage. "Ah. Mrs. Everleigh, excuse me for not seeing you before!" ' We all know that love is blind," said the lady, smiling. "Now I see why you haven't been to see me in such an age! Ah, you need'nt look so unconscious. My niece was at D'Artier's this morning, and Baw how particular you ware in tha selection of a certain article Before I could explain this piece of circumstantial evidence, there was a mortmant in the "lock" of carriages which had eaased the temporary detention of my fair friend, and her equipage rolled away, with a ware of the pretty hand within and the archest of smiles. I stood looking after her, with an odd'sort of impression that I should wake up presently to find myaelf married to some body, whether or ne; indeed, I was not altogether certain whether Mrs. Golde was not waiting for me at home! How brilliantly the firelight aad gaslight ilI 1 a ? !!--* - ? mmJ* iuiniiiea ia?t oosey utue room at uee Worcester a, ?itk its pink tinted wall*.and the crimson carpet, sprinkled with small white bads. The piano wu open, strewn with sheets of mnsic, just as it had been left, its pearl keys glimmering softly in the subdued radiance of the one jet of light that glowed through a frosted shade above The tea-table was all set?I had otten dreamed of a home of my own that should be something like Lee Worcester's, in its snag evening comfort, and somehow that tea-table always formed part of the phantasm There waj something so bright and cheerfal in the snowy damask, and the sparkling glass and glittering ehina. Old bachelor aa I was, the golden blocks of eake and tiny white maffins, breaking into crisp flakes that melted in one's month, and amber jellies, qaivering like gi gantic jewels through their crystal prison walla, produced a wonderful agreeable effect in my epicurean night. And I could imagine no prettier virion to crown it all, than Macjr Worcester in her crimson merino dress, edged round the throat with delicate lace, presiding at the silver tea-urn. Except, perhaps?but that's neither here nor there. I was a little disappointed, on entering, not to see Lee's sister-in-law, a little beauty, with brown rippling hair and velvety eyes, somewhere between has el and black, out I did not like to ask any questions, and consequently remained in irnoranee until Mary casually re marked: "Nettie U very low-fp?rited this evening, perhaps she will come down stain by and by. f How I longed to uk what the natter waa. Perbape the bad received ill nawe; perhaps *be waa not well. I would bar* given my two ears to know, bat I didn't dax* to inquire. S" yo?V- go'-g to b* marri?.d eh, Tracy, y " ?

"for mercy'a take, dear Lee, do teU ate where you picked ap that ridiculous report!" "Ridiculous report! that'sprettjcool, upon my honor," exclaimed Worcester. "Now, Mr. Golde," said Mary, laughing, '"don't deny the soft impeachment. I am sure you would enjoy a quiet home of your own much better than that noisy hotel There < is no charm against a sad heart like domestic bliss!" # There was a radiant softness in her own tender ejes as she spoke that penetrated me with the sudden conviction that I had been exceedingly foolish to remain single all these years. " Do confess," she added, gaily. "But I have nothing on earth te confess." ' Nonsense," said Mary, holding up a pretty. warning finger. " What were you buying at D'Artier's this very morning ?" 1 I turned scarlet; here was that everlasting wedding-cake again! Fortunately my inquisition was terminated for a moment by the entrance of Lee's sisterin-law, looking lovelier than I had ever seen her before; a little pale, perhaps, however, i J 1 1 1 V 1 * ?.? 1 _ ? V . ana ner siikj eyeuwnes neavy wun wnai I ; could almost have fancied recent U&rs, were it not that she seemed in extravagant gay spirits. ' Tho soft flashes of color came and went like pink shadows across her cheeks, and her coral lips were dimpled with the brightest of smiles; ] vet all the time I oould not divest myself of thrf edd impression that she was ready to melt inte an April shower of tears at any moment' 1 She lightly tendered me her congratulations upon the approaching "happy event," holding out a small snowy hand loaded with sparkling \ rings, as she did so. ""You apeak in riddles, Miss Nettie." i "Don't pretend that vou have not the key < to them," she said, a little tremulously. i " I cannot comprehend what you mean," I answered I, sturdily. She said no more, but sat quietly down, j shading her eyes with her hand, as though the ( fire dazxled them. Mrs. Worcester, however, still pursued the obnexious topic. 44 Then how do you explain the wedding- i cake at D Artier ' " Is that the only testimony upon which I am tried and convicted of a willful intention of matrimony?" 44 That is all; we are ready to hear your defence." " Well, that unlucky mess of white sugar and dyapepsia was for my brother's wedding ceremonies, a hundred miles away. I assure you it had not the least connection with my ' matrimonial fortunes!" Nettie looked up with a rare brilliance under her long lashes, and an almst involuntary smile wreathing her lips, I took heart of hope and went bravely on, cheered by a sudden inspiration. ' But I will purohase a bride-cake twice as large, for my own wedding, if Nettie will consent to be the bride!" mere?1 had dene it, and ib less than fire minutes wad an accepted lover, looking boldly into the wondrous liquid depths ef those brown, beautiful eyes. "And n?w, Tracy," said Mary,mischievously, " I'll tell you a secret; the reason Nettie cried half the afternoon, aad became so low- ! spirited this evening, was that " " Mary !" remonstrated Nettie, with cheeks ' ablase "That she heard you were buying a wedding-cake!" pursued Marv. putting awav the white fingers with which Nettie vainly strove to fetter her tell tale lips. " I'll order another one to-morrow," said I, meditatively. " Ah, I shouldn't have repined so much at Tom'a commission had I known what a sweet little wife it would win me'." " Don't Tracy !" said Nettie, hiding her face on my shoulder. And when Tom wrote to know why on earth I didn't come to his hymenial ceremonies, I wrote back that I was obliged to stay to attend a wedding of my own ! And such a wedding-cake as graced the center of our banqueting board! It's no use trying to describe its frosted splendors; but if any of my readers seriously contemplate getting married, I'll send them the recipe.

Halleck, says :?Our successes it New Madrid arc even greater than reported Twenty-five pieces of heavy artillery, 24-pounders, and rifled; thirty-two pieces of Held artillery, an immense quantity of fixed ammunition, several thousand amall arms, hundreds of boxes of musket cartridges, three hundred mules and horses, tents for an army of 12,000 men, and an immense quantity of other property, of not less value than a million dollars, have fallen Into our hands. The men only escaped by the enemy's whole force being demoralized and dispersed in swamps on the opposite side of the river. The enemy abandoned their works so hurriedly as to leave all their baggage, officers' knapsacks, men, their dead unburied, their suppers on the tables, and randies burning in the tents. A furious thunder storm, which raged all night, enabled them to get across the river without being discovered Our heavy batterv was established during the night of the 10th, within eight hundred yards of the enemy's work*, and opened at daylight on the 13th, just thirty four hours after the guns were delivered to the United State* at Cairo. During the whole of yesterday our lines were drawn closer around their works, under a furious fire from sixty pieces of artillery. Fear of an assault on their works at daylight induced them to flee precipitately daring the night. Many prisoners have been taken, and the colors of several Arkansas regiments have been captured. Our loss is about fifty killed and wounded. Hollins was In command of the fleet, and Generals McConn, Stewart, and Gnott, of the land forces. The gunboats went down the river. Pope has twenty-five heavy guns with two works of the enemy, which command every point of the river. A Skirmish with Ashby's Cavalry. Wischksteb, March 15?Gen.
