HARPER'S WEEKLY.

(Previous Page) And again on 10th:

At about 10 o'clock A.M. the fog began to lift, and then we realized the actual presence of the expedition, for soon transports, gun-boats, and all sorts of craft began to enter the Roads, and come to anchor under the walls of the fortress. The transport steamers were black with troops, who cheered vociferously, and were answered by every body on all sides, while the bands played the " Star-Spangled Banner." Up to 4 o'clock P.M. the Eastern City, with General Burnside, had not arrived. General Foster came on the New Brunswick, and lost no time in paying his respects to General Wool. He speaks in the highest terms of his Brigade, and does not doubt that his troops will follow him any where.

GIVING THE MITTEN.

SHE gave him the mitten, the villagers said,

And that they alleged was the reason

Why Ray Allis went as a private last spring,

To fight for suppression of treason.

Whether gossip spoke idly or wisely, 'twas true

That his glances grew calmer and colder,

And smiles never more to his lips came again

Since the day he enlisted a soldier.

And June Dashaway—what said she the while?

She smiled, but she trembled all over,

And tore the pale roses to flowery snow

When they spoke of her wandering lover.

Listened, pressing her bodice tight over her heart,

When the wire thrilled the grim battle story

Of Lexington lost, of its heroes laid low,

Meeting death on the red field of glory.

Then winter came on, and pitying hearts

Told of soldiers wan, weary, frost-bitten ;

And June stole away to her grandmother's side

To ask—"Couldn't I knit a mitten?"

Ray Allis is coming on sick soldier's leave—

How quickly the bright needles quiver!

"I'll soon have them done, and one man the less

On guard shall not tremble and shiver.

"But Ray must not know this heart, turning traitor, Takes back all those hasty words spoken:

I said I would never be his if he went-

I must keep the rash promise unbroken.

"I'll take them to him, just to see if they fit,

Or, if needs be, some stitches to alter,

And if he is better and happy at heart

I know that my speech will not falter.

But if he should be very sorry, or sick,

Or look very weary and lonely—

Stay, am I quite sure I can meet him again?

Courage, June, for a brief moment only."

"Friend Ray, will you try them? I knit them for you."

A smile lit his face sad and sober,

While holding his hand lightly over her own,

The kneeling form trembled all over.

"This fits very well, the other please try,

To make them both right I'll endeavor."

He threw back his cloak—" June Dashaway, dear,

One mitten henceforth and forever!"

And now couldn't I such a sweet story tell?

How the girl, with her eyes softly shining,

Crept closer beside the arm lonely for aye,

Around it her slight fingers twining,

And murmured some words in a womanish way, Something all about soldiers and glory;

And then, that the mitten might not want a hand, She gave him her own. That's the story.

A Story to Show how Benjamin learned the Principles which raised him from a Printer's Boy to the first Ambassador of the American Republic. A Boy's Book on a Boy's own Subject. By HENRY MAYHEW, Author of " The Peasant-Boy Philosopher," "The Wonders of Science ; or, Young Humphrey Davy," &c., &c. With Illustrations by JOHN GILBERT. 16mo, Muslin, 75 cents.

Boys may benefit by this book. It is an attempt, by a practiced writer, to give lads principles through the medium of a story, to teach the new generation "the means of worldly welfare, the laws of worldly happiness, and the rules of worldly duty." The incidents are thoroughly well done.—London Spectator.

NOTICE TO QUIT.
A NOVEL.

By W. G. Wills,
Author of "Life's Foreshadowing,"
8vo, Paper, 50 cents.

A novel of remarkable power. The interest never flags. There is real genius in this writer.—Spectator.

This story is full of life and energy. The style is good, and the author touches in a masterly manner the secret chords of the human heart.—John Bull.

This is an excellent novel—pleasant to read; and the moral thread that runs throughout ii delicately spun, and not too obtrusive.—Athenaeum.

STREAKS OF LIGHT ;
OR,
Fifty-Two Facts from the Bible for
Fifty-Two Sundays of the Year.

By the Author of "Peep of Day," "Line upon Line," "Reading without Tears," and "More about Jesus."

Illustrations. 16mo, Muslin gilt, 60 cents.

"This little work," says the author, "has received the distinguished honor of being appointed to be one of the class-books for the Samoan Collegians, and has been made to subserve the highest of all purposes—the preaching of the Gospel. To that purpose it is adapted when the hearers are untaught, untrained, and unreflecting. Each lesson can be understood by those who have no previous knowledge, and each is calculated to be the first addrsss to one who has never before heard of God or his Christ."

Gieseler's Church History.

A TEXT-BOOK OF CHURCH HISTORY. By Dr. JOHN C. L. GIESELER. Translated and Edited by Rev. HENRY B. SMITH, D.D., Professor in the Union Theological Seminary, New York. Vol. IV.—A.D. 1517-1648. The Reformation and its Results to the Peace of Westphalia. 8vo, Muslin, $2.00; Sheep, $2.25 ; Half Calf, $3.00.

This Fourth Volume of Gieseler contains the History of the Reformation and its results, to the Peace of Westphalia, 1517 to 1648. Only one-fifth of it has ever before been translated. It is one of the most valuable parts of Gieseler's invaluable work. Prof. Redepenning, the Editor of the later volumes, says, that it contains " the crown of his labors." The history of the doctrinal controversies, particularly in the Lutheran Church, is nowhere more faithfully expounded. A fifth volume, now in progress, will complete the work to the present time, including the whole history of the Roman Catholic Church from the Reformation.
