I saw a sad s-v^t face to-day • Pressed to the window pane, Toft, liiinld eyes of dark, dailc gray, ■ That lineerlng looked far; fat away Across the summer-plain. ■  ■ So sad the cheek, so thin and white,  So wan the childish brow. That as I sit and mnse to-night' 1 see them in the pale dim light; They haunt my memory now.  The flowers were nodding to and fro.  Their rose-tipped leaves apart, While sand the brooklet soft and low The clUldhood songs she used to know. Back to her listening heart.  The scene around was wondrous fair.  By vale and river's brim; Soft summer fragrance filled theair. And still the white cheek rested ther» Till the sweet eyes grew dim.  That vision from the far blue skies.  What dream of hill and dale Come with those voiceful memories To light awhile the pensive eyes And Hush a cheek so pale.  A iirisoned heart, j  Poor naart, so lone and low. Fain won'd 1 lift thee to my breast. And bear thee to some grassy nest Where purple violets blow.  The longing, lingering, lonely look;  The wan, sad check so white, The heart that heard the singing brook, The.e.ve8 that sought the sha'dowy nook, Are in my. dreams to-nisht. ' -  , in sad unrest—  Harold's Mistake.  BY LIZZIE VAN »BBVOET.  A bright moonligbtnight and a gayparty. Peals of laughter in all keys float througli the keen frosty air as sleigli-load after sleigh-load drive away from a brightly 'lit mansion, xintil the Btreet seems filled with the dashing sleighing party.  One, n small shell-like creation drawn by a single black lioi-se, leads the party. Its occui^ants are Mr. Harold Greystono and his sister, Miss Nellie. Mr. Greystone, after wrapijiug his sister in the fur robes, devotes himself to putting his hoi-se at a sjieed that xiromises to leave the remainder of the piutj- in the distiince. Per some reason, Mr. Greystone does not seem to share the exuberant spiiits of "the rest of the jjarty. On the conti-ary, he seems a good deal put out, to say the least, and his usually good-humored countenance is overcast. His heavy black brows .ire drawn together, and in spite of the sweeping mustache one Ciin note tha firm expression that lurks around the mouth.  Altogether he looks very giim. Miss Nellie thinks as she turns hers^ilf and surveys him.  She is very small herself, and being buried to the chin in wraps, it is a work of time to turn herself sitfflcieutly to sec his face. Noting its exj'jression, she begun ciiutiously:  "Harold, ain't you driving tho hor.^es too fasi y Sec, the others are tnviiy behind."  "We will iirrivo all the sooner for supper, sis," wnB the reply.  "O, well, but the oysters are not put on to cook yet, so we needn't huny on that score." '  Harold reluci.'iiitly pulled Up his horse a little, and, linjking back, he grov.-led:  "That fool, Dou'ghiss. will dawdle enough for the whole piirty. It's a griii\d w onder he would consent io drive a load. How-ev(^r, if inv TJInneho wanted (o go in  auy iii-iLiiis or Hut. <¡ laiig, -iupi-ii^y  thé horse .savagely Nvilh the reins.  "Ilarolcl, did vou ask Blaiiclio to go wltli you?"  "No, by Jove, I didn't. I am not quite such a fool as that. My Lady Blanche will find that she cannot twist every one around her finger like Douglass."  "I don't think yon need be so h.ird on Blanche. She isn't crazy after rich jieople at all. We are not rich, and I am siu-e she is always goodness itself, though -you do put on awful airs and treat her like she was the veriest stranger. As for Mr. Douglass, almost everyone likes him, if he is a little soft. But Blanche isn't the-leastliitinlove with him."  "No, not in love with him, but his pock-et-book. I never sup]30sed she was in love with him."  "Harold Greystone, I am ashamed of you. You know there isn't a word of tmth in what you say. There, I am glad we have got there at last. I feel chilly in spite of wraps."  Harold lifted his chai'ge from his sleigh and placed her on the stèps of the hotel, where the pai-ty have planned a dance, to be followed by an oyster supper. The other sleighs drive up, and directly the hotel is alive with the meiTy pai-ty. The evening is Jieai-tily enjoyed by all, -with the exception, perhaps, oí Harold Greystone. The sight of Miss Leslie smilingly accepting the attentions offered her by young Douglas rendered the evening anything but pleasant to him. It is tnie he had no right to complain.  Nellie was right when she said his own pride had erected the barrier between them. The fact that ^yhile Miss Leslie's parents are' gi-own wealthier within late yeai-s, his own had grown iDOorer, was obstacle enough to Harold. He did not fancy the name of fortune-hunter. He told himself she had totally forgotten the old days when they were ' on an equal footing, and, no doubt, she was ashamed to remember her preference for himself. But he would not presume on that now. Douglass might win her, and he would not lay a straw in liis way.  All this and a great deal more ran through bis head as he gaily talked and danced with a particular rival of Blanche's, who seemed determined to bring him to her feet.  When at last the party concluded to turn their steps homeward, Harold seized hia own jDarticular charge from a crowd of hooded and mufiled figures and speedily had her isi the sleigh, completely enveloped in tho robes.  "Now, BÍB, rpjuomber you are not to move or hardly speak on the way home, else you will be laid up with an awful cold and iaye a red aiqse, and then you can not see your dear I'red when he arrives to-morrow. After dancing so much and eátiñg a warm supper you must be doubly careful, and if I hear^ sneeze, home you go fortheïest of the winter,-my child;" which cheerful remarks he emphasized by a gentle shalting.  "You need not be absolutely dumb. Just nod your head to signify your approval of my remarks. Did you have a; good time?"  A perceptible moving back and forth was his answer.  "Yes, every one had a splendid time, myself in pai-ticulai'. I entertained myself watching Douglas play the'clo^vn for lliss Leslie's amusement. He did it'.to perfec-. tion. By George, I should have tliought 60 many sweet smiles would have made her sick. Shows how much a woman can stand when she makes up her mind to it, and I suppose her mind ie made up, don't you?" i A decided- negative is indicated by his companion's movements. . - ,  "Humph! I firmly believe she intends to mai-ry Softhead (his own. name for young Douglass) sooner or lafer, probably ^sooner. Why don't you think sshe does, sis? You can tfaloosen that shawl oriscarf, or whatever it is,,enon^i to let me jhear the sound; of your voice.' rin getting lonesome. 'What did you say?». ,  don't think jUlanche likes Mr. Doug-' lass very well, " was the barely audible reply. . '  ' "The deuce yon dozt't! • O, "vvell! but yon are mistaken, I know. Don't she show him. all Boi-ts of favors, dancing mih .hînl xc-,-peatedly,,evep giving Mm, the donee she  thatl should! ^^ite^toiSiiight?  Some violent emo.tion tseemcd to be'agita-ting.his companion," and her struggles àt-.iracted the attention of Mr. Greystone; he shook her vehemently. ■ "Now, Nellie, I positively forbid you taking off a single shawl," and he attempted to readjust her wraps, but^the lady resisted his wellrintended eflforts and in a trice ; had torn tha veil from her face and di^layedto his astonished gaze the laughing countcn-ance of Blanche Leslie.  "Pray, go on with your remarks, Mr. Greystone. Your stj-le, though a "little peculiar, is nevertheless highly entertaining. I don't know when I have enjoyed a ride so much."  "Ain't you afi-aid we shall upset if we don't keep to the road?" for the horse was following its o^vn sweet will and meandering along the roadside in an aimless fash-iony while his driver stared at his companion in utter amazement.  "What—an—utter—idiot 1 have been," hie power.of speech coming back to him by jerks.  "Where is Nellie, and how on earth did you get here, Blanche?"  "O, Nellie wanted to.ride home with the load—^I think she was tired of your company, sir—and I hadn't the heart to refuse her when she wanted me to take her place." ; ;  "And you have been listening to all my idiotic talk! "Whatinust you tliink of mo?-Can you over foj^vo mo for the way I have talked, and," laying his hand on her arm, "tell me, Blanche, that yon loathe and despise that fellow Douglass."^  "But I do not loaSie an3 despise Mr. Douglass. On the contraryj I consider him one of the pleasantest young men I know. But what do you want to talk of Mr. Douglass for? Are you so infatuated with him that you cannot talk of anj^thing élse?"  "I infattiated -nithjiim! I heartily detest the man. I wanted to knock him down eveiy time he looked at you to-night. Blanche, darling," slipping his arm adroitly aroimd her waist, "tell me, do you care even a little for mc? Are you perfectly indifferent to me, when I have worshiped you all my life?"  "It would serve you right if I hated yon, and I don't see why I don't, after the way you have treated me—never to come near me or speak to me at all," with a most reproachful glance.  "But you don't hate me, do you Blanche?"  "No—I don'tj" she confes-sed.  Mr. Greystone's horse lagged in a most unaccountiible fashion the last half of the way home, but evei^iihing must have been veiy hiu-monious, for tlie first time Mr. Greystone met Mr. Douglass, he hailed him with such hearty good humor as to fill that geutlenian with' v.'onder. and he marveled ii-eatly what had come over that gi-uff fel-ow. Greystone. "By Jove, he never used to hardly speak to a fellow."  Copper and Bra.ss, The first copper mines opened in the United States, says the Fotlery and Gtassu-ara Bejiorter, were located in Connecticut. The State employed its convicts for a period of sixty ye.ars, ending about 1880, in getting out the mstal in the toAvn of Slmsbury. The ingots of metal were sold to the mint and to tho smiths; but at first by far the larger part was exported to Europe to be malinfactured. After 1812, when a duty of pm- cent, was levied upon  t.C . L:-;.. a.-..  Middle States. Ju l^T'-î mere wtie copper aud^ ' .-»s.s factories in ojicrfi-tion, employing 5,COO hands, and producing a value of $1',000,COD in finish-ccf goods annually, there being of these factories twenty-nine la Connecticut, forly-four n IMassachusetts, eiglity-iive in New York, eig'lity-one in Penu.syi-van':a and twenty-one in New Jersey. Ansonia and Waterbury, Ct., became the principal centers of manufacture.  Pure copper is one of the softest of metals, and is easily rolled into plates for use. It is in the form of plates principally that it is employed in the arts.  Sheet.copper is a very popular material for boilers and cooking utensils in domestic use. The metal resists the action of the fire better than tin and sheet-iron; it is, theréfo.e, applied to the construction of many forms of manufacturing apparatus which come into contact -firith fire, such as retorts and pipes, vacuum-pans, condensers and boilers in distilleries, sugar refineries and other factories. The smaller utensils are formed from the sheet metal by hammering, and by the process of spinning up. Tlie copper becomes very dense and brittle in the smithing pros-ess, and has to be anûealed constantly as the work goes on.  Copper is mçre extensively used in the form, of brass than in its pure state. By admixture with a certain proportion of zinc, it gains beauty and durability, and is generally preferred in that form. The best proportion of-the metals is two of copper to one of zinc, which, makes what is called eight-ounce brass; that is, eight ounces of zinc to sixteen of copper in the pound.  Brass is as agreeable a metal to work as pure silver. In thin plates it can be stamped and emhossed in any form. It spins up beautifully in a lathe. It can be drawn out into delicate Avire, and is so malleable that it can be beaten out almost like gold-leaf itself for the purpose of cheap gUding. The metal is susceptible of a high polisTi. It does not rust by exposure, and has a great deal of the beauty of gold. It is the universal material of ■which chandeliers and gas fixtures are made, being susceptible of rich coloring, bronzing and silvering "by chemical processes, and of phaping into the most elaborate forms by stamping and embossing.  Brass is much used at the present time for grate fronts, fire sets, various articles of household bric-a-brac, and is coming into large use for office fin-isliing.s. '  A Bnsincss with Her.  A careful housewife, upon entering her kitchen, said to the colored cook :  "Great goodness, Jane, you must be more careful. You are not clean enough ia your cooking. "  "Lady," replied the cook, as she took up a piece of beef that had fallen on the floor, "I sees dat yer's gwine ter ack foolish wid me. Ain't yer got nothin' ter do 'cept ter fool r;un' ort heah?"  . "It's my business to come out hera occasionally."  - "All right, den^ hab it yer own way, but J "wanter say one thing : Ef yêr wants to vjoy yesse'f at de table an? eat wid er 'comin' appertite, yer'd better stay outen dis kitouen.

Dispatches from Belgrade state that the Servian army has crossed the Bulgarian frontier^in three divisions at Tsaribrod, Klissurai and iSregova. They iildt with no resistance in" crossing. Shai-p fighting occurred at' Tin on the Vlasina road, and at Kustendil. Many were killed and wounded on both sides. Tto Rnlearians retreated at all points. The whole Servian ■army '^^-Bulgarian territory.,;:'., r; -Kmg^Elaji«inf<Jri»ed-rtfi& powers that Bervia has 'declared war against Biilgaria because Bulgaria arbiti-arily attacked a position which the Moiava division of the King's troops held in Servian territory, opposite the Bulgarian frontier.  King Milan has also issued a proclamation which is in substance as follows: "Seiria cannot allow Bulgaria, which has already proved a hard neighbor, to disturb the balance of power in the Balkans to her exclusive advimtage." He then alludes to what he calls "the unjustifiable Bulgarian customs duties on the frontier'} the unlawful seizxire of Bregovaj and the oncoiuage-ment by Bulgaria of the Servian rebels condemned for high treason."  [King Milan here refers probably to Peko Pavlovich, the Herzegovinian chief, and Pashico, the Servian Eadical leader, who was expelled by King Milan from the Skuptschina. Copies of revolutiouaiy proclamations signed by those men and distributed throughoiit Sen-ia were recently found by Servian oflicialsj, and the latter claimed'they were disseminated by the rev-oltttionarieB under Bulgarian iirotection. This Bulgaria denied, claiming they were many miles distimt from the Servian frontier,'intemed in a fortress.]  King Milan also alludes to the alleged ill treatment of Servian emigrants in Bui" giiria, the blockade of the frontier by Bulgaria, and alleged attacks by undisciplined Biilgariun voliuiteei-s on the Servian peo-. pie and ti-oops. In conclusion, the King says: "I cannot suffer . these intentional provocations, and I, therefore, adopt tho policy of open hostility which has been forced upon me by Biilgaria. Servia's just cause now rests on the arbitration of arms, the bravely of her army, the protection of the Almighty. I rely tipon my people's patriotism."  Bulgaria.  Great excitement and enthusiasm prevail in Philippopolis. Troops are being hurried forward to tho defense of Sofia, and the wai- fever, which had recentlj' died out, is again at the highest pitch.  Prince Alexander, from his headquai-ters at Sofia, issued an order of the day to the ofiicers and lueii oi Lis army, of which tho tlie substance: "liing Milan  -I--J---.A  tcr:^ ■ ' ; L''ut>u''. u«.........  cowarâiy/trèacheroiiB enemy!

The various forces of Seixia are as follows: Field ai-my, 60,288 men, with 264: gims; reserve formation, 12,856 men, with 3J; guns: resene army of landwehr, 52,270 men, with l20 guns; landsturm, 45,000 men, or a total of 170,412 officers and men and 418 guns. The infantry is armed with the Mauser rifle, improved by Major Mecovaro-vitch, which is of a caliber of 10.15 mDi-meters. The artillery is variously armed with muzzle-loaders and Krupp gims. The total cavahy force included in the above numbers 4,600 men.  The Bulgarian field army consists of 24,-000 infantry, 1,400 cavalrj', two regiments and one company of artillery, 2,340 men; a battalion of engineers, 880 men; a detachment of train, 2,000 men, and a force of gendai-merie, 1,600 men, or a tptal force of 32,220 men, wth 104: guns. The infantry is armed with Berdan lifles, and the batteries have Krupp gims and guns of the latest Russian pattern. The reserve force consists of 24,000 men. There are also 12 battalions of landstrum of 600 men each, or 7,200 men, making a total force of 60,000 men. There is no want of arms, but there is scarcely a sufiBcient force of cavalry and artilleiy. The cavalry numbers l,50p men. The scarcity of officers, since many of the Eussiau officers returned home, is also a serious matter. Prince Alexander is an able and energetic soldier.  The Eastern Eoumelian ai-my coinprises 18,224 men of the first levy, 19,187 of the second, 23,197 of the reserve, and 3,422 men of the active reserve, making a total of 64,030 men. The number "of officers available is altogether out of proportion to the number of men. There is no scarcity of arms, as there are about 80,000 Ki-nka, 7,000 Berdan, and 6,000 Martini-Henry rifles in the province. The artillery consists of four gims. The Bidgarian arsenals atEustchuk and Easgrad contain a good supply of arms, uniforms,aiid equipments. The arsenal at Eustchuk is turning out 60,000 Berdan caitridges a day, in addition to anmiunition for artillery.  Feeling: in I^ance and England.  The Indépendance Belge (Brussels) prints a dispatch from Sofia describing an affair which took plaça between the Servians and the Bulgarians at Tzaribrod, a few miles over, the frontier in Bidgaria, in a southerly direction from Pirot, on the way toward Sofia. The heroism of the Bulgarians is dwelt upon, as is natural in a Sofian dispatch. They : had only one infantry battalion against, six Servian battalions supported by two batteries of jutillery and .two sqiiadrons of cavalry. The cavalry, which, be-  Nischava. * The* dispatch continues : "They were decimated, while we had only thirty-four killed and wounded."  The same dispatch describes a second affair the same day at the village of Izoord in the district of Kcnstendil, further south than the i^lace of the first affair. Here simple Bulgarian militia, in defending the  ?)lace, lost eight men, while the. Servian OSS numbered seventy.

The report was as follows: We submit to tho people of the TTnited States that the continuance of the war tariff, with duties avernging -I'i per cent, on over fourteon him-dred articles of domestic consumption, and a much higher specifiio duty on many crude ma-toriiila, has prolonged the evils of w-nx in times of xa-ofound pease, and has been tho principal cause of the commercial and industrial depression of recent yours.  By forcing labor and capital from naturally profitable into unprofitable lines of business, and by adding t<J the cost of production, it has decreased tho common proiluotlve Interests of the coinitvy, and thorebj-.reduced both the wages of labor and tho lu-ofit of capital; it has provoked an antagonism between labor and CttiJitoI, against whicli otir great natural resources and onr free institutions shovild have protected us ; it has impaired our power to com-lieto with other inanufaeturing nations in the markets of the world, and so obsti-ucted national progress luid doveloi)mcnt.  li has destroyed niiuiy branches of business, and hiis kept our people from engaging in other braiiclies of business which would have given iiicreasod (imploymciit to labor.

While holding, accordingly, that taxes in oid of private interests, or for, any purpose other than tho requirements of govenmient, are un-American, unjust, and unwise, and that every protective feature must at the earlist x>osEible date be eradicated from our revenue system, we invite all who oppose the abuses of the present tariff to join us in promoting iimnediate steps of practical tariff reform, which we believe will increase wages, diminish the frequency of strikes, develop business, and restore our flag to the seas.  Wo therefore urge upon Congress for action at the ensuing session—first, that ilnder no pretense shall any eoimtenanco be given to attempts to increase protective duties; second, that articles which are at the foimdAtion of great industries should, in the interests of labor and commerce, be freed from duty, whether they be crude materials-^as lumber, salt, coal, ore, wood, etc.—or partly manufactured—as cheraicate, dyestufts, pig iron, tinplate, wood pulp, etc.; third, that on products from such articles duties should at least be correspond- • ingly reduced, so that , the protection, real or nominal, to manufacturers shall not be increased, and that the consumers shall have the immediate benefit of the reduction.  We urge that any steps in tariff reform should simplify the present complicated classification, should do oway with.mixed duties, replacing them by ad valorem rates instead of by specific duties, which are most burdensome to low-price goods consimied by tho great body of the people.  We demand free ships, and the abolition of our restrictive navigation laws, which, together with the tariff, have driven our flag from the seas; and we oppose bounties and' subsidies on shipping. We urge revenue reformers. to: vote only for such Congressional candidates as openly oppose tariff for protection, and to take steps to nominate' independent candidates when all party candidates oppose taiifl reform, preparing for tho stop by diffusing sound economic literature and promoting organization, especially in close congressional districfs.  The following resolution was also adopted:  licsoltied. That it is tho sense of this convention that no further 'reduction be countenanced in tho internal revenue tax on spirits and to-baccountil the existing tariif has been brought to a strict revenue basis.  A mass meeting in behalf of free trade, was held at Central Music Hall, of which a local paper says: "The hall was crowded to overflowing, and himdreds were unable to obtain admission. Standing room was at a .premium, and tickets could have been sold at a liberal price for admission to the house. Tho audience was a cultivated one, and included all classes of Chicago society, with many leading protectionists."  Addresses were delivered by David A. Wells and Henry Ward Beecher. The former asserted tiiat all ti-ade and commerce, in the practicfd business of lifej is the interchange of products arid servicesi and there can be no buying -without selling or selling ■.without buying; and the latter claimed that a paternal government was always an infernal government; that the custom-house is a.trap and a snare, and that commerce should be as free as thought.

Anotber Iietter from Gen. Grant to Dr.  Doaglasa.  The last number of the Century Magazine reproduced a letter written by General Grant to Dr. J. H. Douglass while on Mount MaoGregor, in which reference : was made to a previous letter in like strain. - The prompting causes of thatpre-vious letter and the letter itself here follow. Gen. Grant reached Mount MacGregor June 16, and that night he slept ten full hours, and well. The next afternoon the General sat upon thé cot^ táge piazza alone and in deepthought. Sud-deidy, as though after.mature reflection he hadformedaresolve,the General stunmoried his servant, and staated down the steps and walked to the bluff of the mountain. There he sat upon a rustic chair, with eyes ;bent to the earth, his features drawn and tense,, and an e:q}ression of introspection on his face. He had set himself to do a test of his oim strength. He wanted a basis for personal judgment of his ovm condition,, and ho found himself weak beyond his ex-ectatiori. He went slowly back to the cot-ige, and reached his room discouraged and disheartened, and &at evening seated on the piazza, as the sxm went do-vm> the General -trrote a calm statement of his 'con-■victions as to his own condition. This he handed to Dr. Douglas; and it -was' the" "previous" letter referred to in the General's reproduced letter in the Centuryi- It is here given: . 5  X>octob: Since coming to thia béantifal cUmato and -getting a complete rest for ahon-t ten hours I have watched my pains ond com-pored them with those of the last few weeks. - 3 can feel plainly ühat . my system is preparing for- dissolution in three ways—one.byhemor-rhage, one by strangulation,and.the third by- ex- ' haustion.

Lewis, of JEdinbm-g, last week slipped and fell over a washtub, breaking one of her ribs. It is not remorkable that a girl should slip and fall, for anybody is likely to do so. Nor is it sti-ange that she should break one of her ribs. Many a girl has had a rib broken ere this. But it is noteworthy that this young lady fell over a washtub. What could she ; possibly be doing about a tub? Surely, not ^ using it. The only plausible exiJlanation is that she came across the tub while acci- | dentally passing thiough the kitchen or wash-house, and, seeing the tub, stopped J to examine it, probably with the idea of . discovering what it was intended for. Not  being used to it, she slipped and fell over -it, breaking a rib as mentioned.
