Again o'er broad savannahs Rise Marion's swart brigade, Whose fiery tramp, like whirlwind rush, Swept down the everglade.

And Faith and Truth, and Love and Ruth, Hovered the battle o'er, Hind'ring the shot, that freight of death Between those brothers bore. ”And thus it happed, by God's good grace, And those good spirits' band, That Death forbore the leaguer'd pla

He arrived safely at Pensacola — at Warrington — at the Headquarters of Gen. Bragg, on the very day that Gen. Bragg, Commodore Ingraham of the Confederate Navy, and Capt. Adams of the Sabine, had dined together. Worden, fearing trouble, read his orders two or three times, committed them to memory, and tore them up. He told Bragg he was a courierral Bragg, replied the officer; my position in the United States service forbids it. But I have an understanding with Capt. Adams, said the General. I cannot help it, interrupted the Lieutenant; I merely asked to go on board that vessel, and if yohly, he thought Bragg would, on his return, let him outside the Southern line unmolested. He proposed to go on shore; Capt. Adams first objected, but finally acquiesced. The brave Worden shoved off in his little boat, and landed. A complete cha
