THE SONG OF KILPATRICK'S TROOPERS.
Up from the ground at break of day,
When the bugle's note is heard,
From the cold, hard ground, where all night we lay,
To rise with the waking bird.
Right merrily our sabres ring
As we scour along on our steeds;
Oh, true and tried are the hearts of those
Whom the brave Kilpatrick leads!
Away, away, o'er the plain we go,
Away on our steeds so fleet!
Ah, well the foeman's path we know
By the print of the foeman's feet!
So on we ride w
But if, by any chance, the fate of the rebellion should be left to Lee, he would contemplate the situation as a soldier and not as a fire-eating braggart. Confronted by irresistible combinations and overpowering force he would hardly chatter about the last ditch, but would surrender to save useless suffering. Even should he do otherwise, if the rebel army retreat to the mountains, the apathy of the sea-board and interior population will gradually succumb to the necessity of the case. Men must

SHERMAN'S MARCH THROUGH THE CAROLINAS.
Our readers will remember that at New-Years we filled our illustrated pages with sketches by Mr. Theodore R. Davis, of General Sherman's march through Georgia. Three months have scarcely passed since then, and we now fill our sheet with

another series of sketches by the same artist, illustrating General Sherman's march through the Carolinas.
WINNSBOROUGH, SOUTH CAROLINA.
By the 14th of February both wings were across the North Edisto, Orangeburg had been occupied, the rebels flanked out of Branchville, and Sherman's right wing had made fifteen miles on the road to Columbia. On the afternoon of the next day the rebel fortifications on the north bank of the Congaree, and covering the approach to Columbia, were carried by the Fifteenth Corps. Making a feint of crossing below on the river, Howard really

They gathered by the quiet homes
Where white stones overlean
The portals whence no footstep comes
That once has passed between,
And raised a monument to keep
A soldier's memory green.
The grass had not been touched by spade
Where its slant shadow lay,
The soldier's resting-place was made
On red field far away,
And yet with bowed, uncovered heads
They kneeled around to pray.
Thus did they consecrate the place
To memory of that one.
One? Why was
Tremlett's lead prospered as I expected it to prosper. He led through dummy with perfect impunity, and it was the same if Austin finessed or played high. But every time Tremlett led, it was as if he saw every card in my hand; and each time I looked up I caught the same haunting expression of face which had struck me the moment we were partners. As far as I could think without neglecting my game, I tried to recall the face of which his reminded me. It must have been the scar on his cheek-bone;
And have they told you all? Ah yes, I see
At last you know it — know that I must die.
Don't tremble so; but come and sit by me,
And hold my hand, and be as calm as I.
Bend nearer, for my voice is faint and low;
And I would tell you something ere I go.
I've known a long time now that in that heart,
Whose every beat was music to my ear,
I've held the second place. Nay, do not start;
I would but tell you — not reproach you, dear.
You loved her first; and though w
as to her tabulation. "What a night, indeed! not fit to turn a dog into!"
"No," said Laura, by way of saying something. And then there was silence again, as there always was now between the mother and daughter. And the wind howled more fiercely than before, and the rain beat more heavily against the windows, and the cruel bitterness of the evening deepened, till it seemed almost like the face of God withdrawn from the world.
A knock came to the door. It was not Gordon's knock, but a louder
