town, we met the cussed decoy again, and we were fools enough to go again-- Williz molley-damniz-hic-eyes! interpolated the other. -- And we got broke again-and this fellow that hollowed Muggins looked like the decoy, but he wasn't. That's the whole truth, Mr. Styles. Mussput-hic-fi dollus on-jack? remarked Spring Chicken. See yer, Styse-o'boy, damfattolman-con'l is! and he curled from the lounge to the floor and slept peacefully. My young friend, remarked Styles gravely to the middie, as we tucked the insensible Spring Chicken into his berth-If you want to gamble, you'll do it-so I don't advise you. But these amphibious beasts are dangerous; so in future play with gentlemen and let them alone. And, my boy, said the colonel, enunciating his moral lesson-gambling is bad enough, egad! but any man is lost-yes, sir, lost! --who will drink mint-after dinner! With which great moral axioms we retired and slept until our steamer reached the Queen city of the South.

With this view General Kirby Smith, with all the troops thaters and unfinished gunboats, and her warehouses bursting with commissary and ordnance stores. When the news of Smith's triumphant march to the very gates of Cincinnati reached Richmond, it was universally believed that the city would be captured, or laid in ashes; and thinking men saw great results in the delay such destructinforcements, or fresh supplies, could reach him. Great was the disappointment, therefore, when news really came of the withdrawal of southern troops from before Cincinnati; and that all action of Bragg's forces would be postponed until Smith's junction with him. Intense anxiety reigned at the Capital, enlivened only by the fit
cross into Indiana. Great was the scare in the West, at this first taste the fine fruits of raiding. Troops were telegraphed, engines flew up and down the roads as if possessed; and in short, home guards, and other troops, were collected to the number of nearly 30,000 men. Evading pursuit, and scattering the detached bands he met, Morgan crossed the Ohio line-tearing up roads, cutting telegraphs, and inflicting much damage and inconceivable panic-until he reached within five miles of Cincinnati. Of course, with his merely nominal force, he could make no attempt on the city; so, after fourteen days of unresting raiding-his command pressed, worn out and broken down-he headed for the river once more. A small portion of the command had already crossed, when the pursuing force came up. Morgan made heavy fight, but his men were outnumbered and exhausted. A few, following him, cut their way through the enemy and fled along the north bank of the Ohio. The pursuit was fierce and hot;
