Here is the Money a nay Good girl i do not want it. I made you a present of it at the time and did not expect you to return it. I am How. Ever glad to find you have the disposition to do so and that i was not deceived in estimation of a you must take it a she said with ingenuous earnestness. A i should be distressed to be longer under to an entire stranger. Be very glad to have clasp if you a did you not take it from the Case where you Laid it Down a he asked with much Surprise and justly directed suspicion. A no sir indeed sir i Hope it is not lost. It is of countless value to me. It was Given me a a Al a sweetheart added he smiling. A the is now dead air a she added with overflowing eyes. A you do Well to value it. I did not take it up. Are you sure you left it there Quot a Les sir hoping you would take it and keep it till i paid you the a Well child i have not got it but i believe the Goldsmith has. Let us go to on their arrival at the shop or. Brooch Ard denied Ever having seen it Sinco she pecuniary obligation beside sir 1 would Progress Over Tho Freo territories of this country because it is believed to to n cup. Although that sentiment was covered up in the ashes of the Compromise of 1850, buried so deep that it seemed As if it would never again Spring into life you yourself re humid it iou added Luc to Iho Sparks that were uric you kindled Tho sentiment into a flame you have been heaping combustible material unit from that Duy to the presi it until at last you Urc in a fair Way to make it a conflagration. Upon you to the consequence if it be so. It is not for Tho president to cry a peace a at the consummation of an outrage when the very beginning of it excited the detestation of the Community in which lie was Horn and bred. But sir we go further than that. That is to to Tho consequence on tie one Side. What is to Boon Tho other to Are told that we Are to have a crisis and Tho Union is to to dissolved. I expressed opinion on that topic four years Ngo. We have had Resolution in the newspapers from the Siatt of Alabama that if Kali ans shall not be pm milled under this Lecompton Constitution it would be time to look about and see How this Union could hold together. To have Hudt stated in one or two other of the slates of the Mouth. We have had it from the honorable senator from Mississippi or. La Row and from other senators. They Tell us that there will he a crisis the moment the people of this country get divided into parties North and South of a question that is important to them and Tho people of the North Triumph it Lam polls under Tom Constitution then lie Tiiu liar strive the crisis has come when the Union Ialo be dissolved. Sir if 1 did not think it was to to a very serious int tar in some Respecta i could laugh at the idea. At any rate it reminds me of a Story familiar to you All probably though i never saw it until yesterday. This disposition which gentlemen have on All occur sinus to get up u crisis whenever anything looks against their Peculiar views nth a subject and to inform us that the time Lus arrived with the idea that Tho peo Plo can be frightened from their propriety is illustrated a Story which 1 saw in them spa Pera something like this a celebrated general in Tho last War is four in one of the Battles on the Advance to the City of Mexico to have Rode up to cup twin Duncan who was in charge of n Battery and with n very grave and sober face told him a a Captain Dunican fire the crisis has Duncan turned to his men with matches Oil lighted and ready and gave the order to fire. Ail old artillerymen walked up to him and said a Captain i do not see an pm within Range of our guns w list shall we lire it a a fire at the crisis a wus the response a did you not hear the general any the crisis Ltd come ? fire it went out and a a he saw her take it with laughter so it is with gentlemen 1 her and place it in her bosom As she left the shop. The Young lady tur Neif Pale and was inconceivably distressed. A come with me. I will find Tho clasp for you a said col. Mchenry offering her think in reference to this matter. They Are always charged and ready to fire it crises. I believe it has arrived half a dozen times within recollection. What i wish to say on that Point is that i ins and leaving the Goldsmiths with look on with great seriousness but without her. A particle of apprehension.

I it that Pudge in but sir our extremity was very attachment be proved our works. We great. A will stood the Union of this country so col. Mchenry stopped with her at a Long us it is Worth standing and let me justices Tolice and briefly and clearly made suy to gentlemen the moment the time Arlos complaint and in a very few minutes lives when it is to be used As ail argument or.
