THE WAR OF THS WIUDO^S Cia Journal of the Se:ge of a Pretty Girl. [Trmsfotrd from th? French. J HI? THEORY OP TUB CAMPAIGN. Not to offend our brave officers, the art strategy is Dot entirely confined to the Treatise on Fortifications. Besiegine Joesn't exclusively belong to the spec tacled young gents of the Polytechnic School. The sieges of Troy. Rochelle. Belgrade, and Sebastopol are not the only great feats on record. There aro other wars less bloody, but which have never theless their details of interest. In front of my window is a window al ways shut. The curtains are of em broidered muslin, lined with sky blue silk. It can't be a doctor or broker who lives there. The veil has betrayed the goddess. Ihe festooned muslin betrays a woman, [he blue lining shows she's a blonde. A brunette would have chosui red or yellow. When ni;;ht cornea, a fe male servant closes the shutters heri;:ct- j ically, with the air of a convent keener, evidently a cavalry officer wouldn't take such pains to preserve his charms. No ' it 8 a woman. >, 15? fKl Vs n,rrow- The houses arc huddled together, one opposite the other without a respectful distance, as if they were anxious to cause what would be pardonable aft.r two hundred ye?r? of neighborhood. I would like to know f my neighbor is insensible. Is she de formed ? Or. is she no better than she u?U*t ' ^at can't be. Only the Madonna stays in her niche.

'tUL RAISING OF TflK SIEGE. The ntne is propitious. It's as hot -><i June. Her widow's oKn, irnYh^e scon only the servant. I could corrupt her at a small price, but that's too much like the Italian coraedics. Besides, it wen t do to eucourage venality; in time of wsr they siioot spies and deserters. I have seized my first weapon, my lorgnette. Through it I have visited her apartment. I like it. The furniture is simple, a sign of distinction. The piano is small, a miniature Erard. A little pi?no is a sign of small hands, i eu.n see a pkee of lace work commenccd. Docs ray beautiful work o' nights like Penelope ? Is 3he making a pair of slip pers for some LTyssca ? FIRST HOSTILITIES. The weather is fairy-like, and the enemy has appeared at her window. Hfr eyes, what artillery! and how the place is armed! She is elegant, gra cious, but i have only seen her eyes, two Paixhan mortars, whose tire is incessant. She has only thrown on me one cotip d'ail, and my heart has blown up like a powder magazine. A pretty woman's look has more power than a Minie rifle. RECON N OITKRIKG. After recovering from the first shock, I examined the besieged. She is hardlv twenty, blonde with black ej'es, a type of Spain regenerated. She is graceful without gaucherie, dignified without stiff ness. Sne is a coquette sub-rosa, gay without romping, and she's not a mar ried woman ! The slippers have no pro prietor !! Ah ! she has shut the window, but I can see her fascinating nose behind the curtain. The enemy is on the alert the day is not lost. ajibcscade. There has been a movement all this afternoon. They have brought in can dles. plants, bouquets. These roses and lilies indicate a fete. Quick, the almanac! I must know her name, and how they call her Paradise. It is the 9th t?f April, Saint Jule's day. Iler name is then Julie, a name half Jewish and half modern. One of those vulgar names ladies of distinction like so well, fcince I know her name, 1 am no longer a Granger ; I can write chansons and anograms on her, my nymph Egeria has come out of her wood. It is night, and the moon has silvered the houses' with its shining rays. She has appeared at her window, cold, imposing, severe, disdainful of my mu'e adoration. S .e thinks herself free in her disdain; but Cynthia, shining just over her head, gives her wholly to me. Thanks to t he reflec tion, her shadow has been thrown on my wall. Charming 3hadow, which Hoffmann has idololized ! I have seen her fine fig ure, her well-formed neck, her empress arm her little hands. Ah ! has she re marked my sentimental folly ? The shadow has disappeared, the window has closed again, and the moon looks at me with mocking eyes. A FALSE RETREAT. Let us change our tactics. Instead of attacking, let us resist, let us feign in difference, barricade our windows. Half the day is gone. She is there. She looks out and doesn't see me. She seems astonished. Bah ! She is a woman and used to being admired. Now to resume the offensive. A poor old beggar is sing ing in the street. Julie goes to the win dow. ^ Together we throw him a sou. Our pieces of money roll away fioin him. We are obliged to show him in which direction they rolled. Juiie smiles. Vithout wishing it, I have been her oo adjutor in an alrnony. her confederate in a good action. PLACING THE TROOPS OP TUB UHE. I have remarked that Julie loves vio lets. I have procured thousands and placed them at my window ; I have sti lled the air like a bouquet at the opera. She has noticed. Th? wind blows tho peifumes from my window to hers, and vice versa. SCALING BV LIO ITT INFANTRY. Flowers arc charming auxiliaries: their dumb language has an interpret r in every heart. Tliey arc faithful troops who die at iheir posts, but I want co horts, Zouaves, bouchi-boutchouks, who will vex the enemy. I have found them hardy, sanguinary, invincible. A legion of birds are attracted by the violets: some of them have flown on Julie's win dow. We feed them together. Wo Lrw: uow one common familj, our cbildrcn. MY YOLTIGUERS ITAVE SCALED THK tiACU. THK MINKS. I have thought of having a lover of the time of Catharine de Medicis: I hive caVed to my aid sorcery, that mine of piatouiclove. In my library is a little l>ook c"i?led Secret* of tke Great Alb*r!; I luv4 sought the simplist means of knowing her who loves me. bold tbe receipt: 44 Place at mil-day a mirror the Imck of your chamber; open your wi v dow to the sun in its full; sprinkle snlL on the sun-rays, say * Add Kab;' thuc times, and your future will appear." As that didn't need the blood of ne v boru babes, nor viper s tongues picklcl. nor four-leaved shamrock to complete the spell, I tried the sorcery. I placcd my mirror before the sun, sprinkled the salt, and Julie appeared ! It was not a mira cle, it was she herself. Mirrors, which they call flatterers, are ungrateful, they do not respect the absent. OPENING OF TIIE BREACH. It is a religious fete to-day. M<>nks are moving in procession, a*id triumphs! arches at e everywhere erected. Seme in genious have placed anarch which unites Julie's window with my own. The priest 3:as blessed us both on our knees. l?o has said " Domnrus voLtfC'im," we havo both replied, " El cum xpirttu tuo,' aud our voices have mingled in the sarr* prayer. They have disappcai i'he rain falls. We must save the flowers which have been biessed. Julie looks st me I loosen my necktie, and say tim idly : 44 Draw towards yourself, c. Julie sm'dcfl. S'ne draws in tbe flowers, and with them r- n-">u\ an avor al a dec laration, which J placcd amid thj laics. I wrote as follows : 44 I love you with a pure and holy love. Do you allow it f Do yen repulse it ? A sign will signify. If I am odious or ridiculous, throw the flowers into the street.'' Why do I Ueinble ! Have I not ma ic a breach ? TDK EPIDEMIC. She has not thrown away the flowers, but she has shut the window I am then an intruder. I have taken away her liberty, her air, her sun. I have menaced ficr with famine?I! V.hat to do ? I am mad. I have a fever. I know not what I am doing/but they hnvc placed me en my couch I talk of my flowers, of my sorcery, I am in a de lirium ! THE TREATY OF PEACE. I have been sick a long time. My jood mother has watched me like a saint I return to life, but feeble as a child. 4 More sieges?" my mother asks, k- More dangerous views from your win dow ?" 44 Oh, mother," said 1,44 the Beige is raised. But my army of flowers, de prived of water, is dead." 4* Tou calumniate ycur troops. In a loyal war, the victorious enemy leaves the soldier his sword, the flower its per fume, tha bird its song Your soldiers have had the benefit of an honorable cap itulation." 44 You jest?" 44 No. As a mother, having the si xty years necessary for a diplomatist, I have called together a congress. 1 have opened conferences, I have arranged the proto cols, I have discussed the guarantees." 441 don't understand." " Having to treat with a noble p? wer, I have contracted with her an alliance offensive and defensive." 44 What would you say ?" 44 Look! behold the iutervicw of the two emperors." I gaze-d. By my bedside stood Julie. She extended her small hand and said, 44 Monsieur, here is one half of a bouquet which belorgs to you." Remarlble Sagacity of a Dog.?Tnt following instance of the remarkable sa gacity of a dog is vouched for by the owner of the animal. A gentleman re siding in Lynn, has, for a long time, tis ited Boston daily on business, at times passing over the Turnpike, and frequent ly over the Eastern Railroad, always ac companied by his deg. On Wednesday last be came to Boston but during the day the dog become separated from his mas ter, who returned home without him. A few hours after the gentleman reach A home the dog also returned. A gentle man who went to Lynn in the aftern v? train, spates that he saw the dog -enter the cars at Boston, and snugly ensconce himself under a i-eat as if to avoid the vigilant eye of the conductor. On the cars stopping at West Lynn, the dog jumped out and hurried home with all possible speed.
