Diary of Captain Robert E. Park, Twelfth Alabama regiment. [continued from July Number.] September 26th, 1864 Miss Janet F----, a very pretty and intelligent young lady, came to the office, and brought us some delicacies. She is a granddaughter of Brigadier-General Fauntleroy, perhaps the oldest officer on the rolls of the Confederate army, now over eighty years of age, and daughter of Captain Fauntleroy of the Confederate navy, now serving his country on the high seas, aiding Adt some tobacco with Confederate money, sold it for greenbacks, and bought a new hat for $3.00. My old military cap was lost as I was carried off the battlefield. The probability is that I will be unable to use my new one in many days to come. Miss Janet F----sent off some letters for us through the lines to Southern Dixie, by means of some of Mosby's men, who are very often in the city. All of us wrote to the loved ones at home. These bold young scouts carry out haversacks filled with letter
ctised by each other. It is not held good-breeding, when they meet in a shop of a morning, for one to seem to notice what another buys. These ancient ladies have coats of arms upon their walls, hereditary damasks among their scanty wardrobes, store of domestic traditions in their brains, and a whole Court Guide of high-sounding names at their fingers' ends. They can tell you of the supposed sister of an English queen, who married an American officer and dwelt in Oldport; of the Scotch Lady Janet, who eloped with her tutor, and here lived in poverty, paying her washer-woman with costly lace from her trunks; of the Oldport dame who escaped from France at the opening of the Revolution, was captured by pirates on her voyage to America, then retaken by a privateer and carried into Boston, where she took refuge in John Hancock's house. They can describe to you the Malbone Gardens, and, as the night wanes and the embers fade, can give the tale of the Phantom of Rough Point. Gliding fa

I clasp, and a silvery voice to prattle. I sent Janet out to sail, with the other servants, by way oive and beautiful marionnette. Then she placed Janet in the middle of the floor, and performed the in Marian's behalf. I had easily persuaded Janet to let me have a peep every night at my darlinAfter one moment of such bliss she could go to Janet, go anywhere; and when the same graceful prese somehow strayed into a confidential talk with Janet about her mistress.

h the care and use of the immediately surrounding land, is allowed to remain in the family during my own, its former owner's, life. It is an affectional privilege which I dearly appreciate, and in token thereof, the public are as welcome on my grounds as in any other part of the park, and it is my effort to keep these grounds free from all that is unsightly, and as wild and beautiful as possible. Should visitors hurt my trees or throw banana skins and salmon cans on my grass, I should cry, Janet, donkeys! but otherwise the place will never be more theirs than it is while I live. It was also the vote of the Board to make a fair allowance in my favor for loss occasioned by the delay in our settlement; but as there hadn't been any loss, and my wish was to keep to my own terms, it was again, on Mr. Chase's motion, decided that the money should go toward the erection of a little stone structure on Pine Hill in honor of Mr. Wright. The motion, in the contribution of such money as remai

Courting. --Dr. Brown, of Hadington, the author of the "Self Inspecting Dictionary," was so youthful that his courtship lasted seven years.--After six years and one-half year, he summoned all his courage for the deed: "Janet," said he, as they sat one night in solemn , "we've been acquainted now for six years and meir, and, I've ne'er gotten a kiss yet; d-ye think I might take one, in a bonnie girl"--"Just as you like, John, only be becoming wi' it." "Surely, Janet, we'll ask a blessnk I might take one, in a bonnie girl"--"Just as you like, John, only be becoming wi' it." "Surely, Janet, we'll ask a blessing." The blessing was asked, the kiss was taken, and the worthy divine, perfectly overpowered by the blissful sensation, most rapturously exclaimed, "Oh, woman! that it is rude, let's return thanks" Six months made the pious couple man and wife, and, added his descendant, who humorously told the tale, a happier couple never spent a longer and more useful life together.
