Rospoch fully the chapter for Ivy ves a Well said i. One Lino morning last week i have tho Prospect of a Leisure alter noon a somewhat unusual tiling with me and All being Well i will do a Little needful shopping Call and pass an hour with my old Friend mrs Ashburton whom on account of tho distance i have neglected of late and then drop in and take a Friendly cup of Tea within Niece Clara Whitford. Having completed my household arrangements i accordingly set out after an Early dinner and tho shopping done made my first Call. Mrs. Ash Burtons a warm Welcome pleasing talk and cheerful fireside would have proved Strong temptations to induce me to accept her invitation to stay for tho evening had i not Felt anxious to see my Niece whose residence was much nearer my own. On arriving at Claras door i was not a Little surprised to see no Light in the front part of the Bouse i am afraid they Aro not at Home thought i with a regretful mental glance backward to the pretty Home picture i had just left. But i was mistaken. A servant answer to my wring at the door Boll and ushered to into the dining room lit the Gas and then went to summon her mistress. I had ample time to look about me before Clara made her appearance and could not help admiring the perfect order and Good taste which prevailed in the apartment and its furniture. I was the Miro pleased to notice this As my Niece when married did not Promise to become very notable As a housewife. A i was beginning to tire of brisk walk Over i Felt Chilly in the tireless room when Clura entered fastening a Little article of dress evidently just assumed. Iler greeting was most cordial and yet there was it Shade of regret in her tone when our first salutations Over she said Why my dear aunt you did not let me know you Fero coming. And i should have been better prepared to receive you a surely Clara i replied a no preparation is needed before you can bestow a cup of Tea on to near a relative As l am. Pray Dunoff make a a by Friendly Call into a ceremonious visit or i shall be tempted to run away again in place of waiting till after Tea and begging or. Hit Ford a escort a Pray dear no it do not think of such a thing. A will Light this fire in a moment and the room will to warm and comfortable a so say ing Clara was about applying a Light Between the burs of the a Vail when i stopped her. A �?�4 you must have a fire somewhere my dear a i said 4 and where you were sitting when i arrived will i am , suit to Best. If i am to disturb any of your arrangements i will leave you forthwith then if so Nunt you will have to excuse my taking you into my Nursery a anywhere to a warm fireside Clara hut is Hui had froth borne a ,. A 4 not aunt to is Here replied my he ice her color rising is she spoke. Laughingly congratulated her on her husbands liking for the company of her first born but perceiving no evidence of plea lire on her noun Tonroe i asked her if the baby was Well.4 of yes quite so thank you aunt. To say the truth it was my doing that we Are in the Nursery to night and Frederick is not too Well a pleased Buitt it but it saves so much trouble and the other rooms have just been cleaned and put in order but do not say a word she added As she opened the Nursery door my Nephew advanced and Sheok me warmly by the hand and then turning to Clara snid 41 Hopo inv dear you do not intend to make your aunt a Nursery guest. It you do i shall not wonder if her visits become still More rare i hastened to assure him that i had been brought there a Myown request and begged no difference might be made but quietly ringing the Bell he desired the Serin it to Light the dining room fire and bring word when it was Well Burnt. Clara bit her lip and looked red and i feeling still More so occupied myself in admiring the baby. I could however distinguish easily enough two or three Little articles which Oon Vinded me that equipage had just been removed and certainly this was not at hat i should have expected to see at Claras Home knowing the comfortable and even affluent income of her husband. I Felt sorry that my unceremonious visit should have produced such an alteration in the arrangements fori could Tell by the production of sundry keys etc., that Many articles not in common use wore to be brought out and the evening meal deferred on my account. Besides i Felt grieved at4 or. A Mitford s ill concealed vexation not displayed towards me but his wife. At length we were summoned to the dining room and truly a wonderful change had been effected there. A Bright fire Illume every Corner an elegant Toa equipage was on the table in Short everything looked a is i bad hoped at first to find it in accordance with the position of its owners. Moreover to any remonstrance for i Well knew that Young housewives do not generally Rolish the pointed interruption of their elders. I Thore Foro called on Clara Haring previously Given her due notice of my intention to accompany to in a Long ramble find i contrived to be near mrs. Ashburton a just As Tea time was approaching and to were thoroughly tired. Clara said i what is to prevent our obtaining rest and refreshment i can insure you both and besides you Are Nob mitc. A stranger to mrs. Ashburton a a of dear aunt i could not think of such n thing we should he euro to cause inconvenience a. A. A a you shall judge for yourself Clara a i answered and if you think so half an hour hence we will journey the moment we were admitted i frankly told my Friend that i had come expressly to claim her Oft tendered hospitality for my Niece and self As we were tired but still had a Long walk before us. 4 Tiow glad i am Roy House Lay in your route a replied she. A Tea is just coming in and my husband will be Here directly.�?T. Id a few moments he arrived and we were All seated prepared to join in tho evening meal. Quot i noticed Claras glances at the perfect or der which surrounded us and the elegant but simple preparations for tho repast. A to sides these it Wab impossible not to see the thorough Comfort diffused around us. My Niece said i to mrs. Ashburton was afraid of causing you inconvenience by coming unawares and taking two places at your Tea table by storm. A cheery laugh from or. Ash Button and a Bright Smijon from his wife followed my words. Mrs. Whitford said the gentleman i am the Moat Fortanato fellow in the world for nothing Ever causes my wife Incon Voni Telce you understand me i Duro say i mean none of those Domestic invasions which Are usually expected to cause a Bustle. She has a Peculiar theory of her own which she most thoroughly reduces to practice consequently we Are always Able to Welcome a Friend How Over unexpected he May blushed and stammered a few words in reply and perceiving her contusion i changed the conversation on cur Way Homo after spending a delightful evening my Nioce was unusually silent but at length Sho asked if i could Tell Hei what theory or. Ashburton alluded to when to said. Hero she hesitated. 41 understand you Ciara i answered a and i can explain it in a very few words. Mrs. Ashburton says that being sure of the daily presence of one guest at her table whom she wishes to Honor above All others she always prepares for that one and is of course ready for any visitor and at any a but i saw no guests beside ourselves 4 did you not ? and yet the person i allude to was there a where whom do you mean you arc jesting indeed my dear Clara i am not. The one whom mrs. Ashburton considers worthy of an Honor is her husband. She says and i Ali Ink justly that she should deem her marriage vow but Illy kept if she made All attractive in the Eyo of a stranger and grudge doing to for him whom she has promised to love Honor and obey her husband and the father of her Clara did not speak in reply but when we parted the moistened Cheek that touched mine convinced to that the lesson was Takon Home and i have no doubt Liat when next visit my Meco i shall find Hor opinion is changed As regards the guest most deserving of hour. The pleasant arpent of affairs banished tho Clouds from , Soa Greo sly did the Tima pase that i quite regretted when obliged to bid my Niece a Good night a Good night dear aunt said Clara kissing me affectionately a do come again but do lot me know when to expect you a and then added or. Whitford after the door was closed a everything will to ready the dining room Tiro will be lighted before your arrival. Dear aunt what do you think of Claras now notion of Domestic Economy ? when we wore first married she was rather ignorant of household matters a now we Are so exceedingly orderly and careful that everything is too Good to use. The drawing room first became so then tho Ding room underwent a thorough renovation and the Nursery resorted to for temporary convenience during the repairs has become our regular abode the others Only being on state occasions probably our next remove will be into the Kitchen. I go into other houses and find that their masters can introduce a Friend at any time with the certainty of causing no embarrassment. To my Home on the contrary the Call of relatives even produces quite a revolution for plate China in fact everything presentable is Laid up in Lavender like the rooms. I wish you would say something to Clara on the Subj not a i know you possess great influence in that Quarter. -1 have you named the Mattory Frederick i asked. of yes a thousand times i think Dut i cannot effect any Chango. I Trust Yon will be More successful a i will try at any rate said i As i took leave of my Nephew in Law. Having thought Over the matter arranged my plan of operation i decided it would be bettor to try the eff Eoff of an opposite picture on Clara s mind before giving utterance a soldiers the mexican War the Veteran general Riley since deceased was ordered to Lead the storming party at Cerro Gordo. During the War of 1812-18id, general Riley had Bee shot in the Throat and consequently had a peculiarly strange intonation. He was ordered to storm Ono of the batteries of Cerro Gordo and when Bis command was mustered was thus addressed by his second in command a t general i do net think we can take this 4 think i by you Are not paid for 44 but sir a said colonel b., a a we can to take 44 can to take it you have got to take tho old general put his land to Liis Belt and pulling out a paper said 44 lore thir Ith general Scott orders in Black end White to take the and they did take it. Done tire Ilia sheriff was once asked to execute a writ again a Quaker. On arriving at his House he saw. The Quaker s wife who in reply to the inquiry whether her husband was at Home said he was at the same time she requested him to be seated and her husband would speedily see him. The officer waited patiently for some Timo when the fair Quak Eress coming into the room he reminded her of her Promise that he might see her husband.41 nay Friend i promised that he would see thee.

The facts in the Case which i have obtained from the Moat nut Hentio sources Are is follows Gran Adams late auditor of the Post office department Aud John f. Sharretts. His chief clerk had been in tho habit of Selling the waste paper of the departments which accumulates very rapidly to dealers and putting tho Money in their own Pook pts. During three years they have sold Over $5.000 Worth tit one dime of which have they Ever paid into the Treasury. They even went farther. They Cut Down lie writes of the labourer who had Boon employed to prepare tho paper for soiling from $40 a to $50 a Quarter. They said that in the present in billion when the country was reeling mulch such a terrible Load and debt it was the duty of every Public officer to s to what he could to the government Ami make All the sacrifice possible to save bleeding country a they therefore with great Ivun Tunco. Ebocker the poor Devil s wages Twenty dollars a Quarter and Nimr Trully put the Samo in their poc Kote they then divided their ill gotten gains and left not a word nor a scratch of a pen in tho office to indicate to Uncle Sam that they it re grateful to him for this special Mark of his favor. Tho other Day this Little affair was discovered in the regular course of business by or. Sells the new auditor or. Sharretts being taxed with having the Money acknowledged the fact and paid Over 44 his half of the Mono together with Writter receipts of or. Adams for an equal amount. In let do you sup Ose was the explanation which these simple innocents gave Orra thei 5�?Timrre�?Ttts, for Adams is Cotton agent at Nus Villo for this singular transaction ? they did net know what to do with the Money i i think this exceeds in Imp Udone even the Paddy a excuse for not returning the for could have told them what not to do with it and that is steal it. I know but Little of Adams and Sharretts but one thing was very suspicious. Thoy were eternally coming tho heavy virtuous and parading their integrity and Energy before the eyes of men. So Merretts was a descendant from tho old Reginio and a recent convert of the new Wash. Cor. Chicago Tribune. Fig it for tiie the Many incidents of bravery and personal daring exhibited in storming the enemy a entrenchments at Petersburg the capture of it rebel Battlo Flag by a private in the third new York regiment in general Smiths corps deserves Especial mention. While the contest was at its height and the tide of Bat to swaying to and fro he espied the Flag borne by a rebel Captain who picked it up As its former bearer fell at his Side. The Gallant new yorker singled him out for personal encounter find after a hard hand to hand fight succeeded in capturing the Flag and its bearer and emerged a rom the dust and Smoko of the conflict victoriously hearing the Banner and driving the Captain be Foro him.

Several months since an intelligent and skillful Young Man emigrated to thi3 country from England and proceeded to Lawrence Maas where he obtained employment in the machine shop of that City. A number of his relatives and friends of the same nationality were settled near him and in time to engaged in marriage the daughter of one of his friends in estimable Young lady who Wab congratulated upon having secured As a life partner a Man of to Many Good qualities. The marriage Day arrived it was ouly a few Days since and the knot was duly tied in presence of the friends of both parties. In the evening there was a social gathering and supper at which the bridegroom took part apparently in the Best of spirits. At about he went out As All supposed to return immediately but he never came Imok. The feelings of the Bride Mav be imagined As Davs passed without any intelligence of the missing Man. He was perfectly steady in his habits his friends say was rep Paranthy attached to his Young wife and no motive could be assigned for his singular conduct. At length on the i2th inst., a letter was received from him dated at Boston. It was written upon a half Sheet of paper dras directed to his wife and stated that he left her because he was unworthy of her and that before she received he should be no More. This is the last that has been heard from him. And it is feared that he has carried out his suicidal design. Hia Daguerreotype represents a person of mild and plea ant countenance who one would suppose would imral cause woman to whom he professed great attachment such terrible mental suffering without some overpowering motive which at present is not suspected Jor it May be the Case of sudden insanity. Boston tra Tuer october 12th. A i Hope you will to Able to support to a said a Young lady to her intended while walking out Odd evening during a state of the sidewalk. A Why to yes a said the hesitating sniff a with some Little assistance from your father of a country editor speaking of spiritualism. Says a a we done to believe in any medium except medium and that has scarce that our belief in it is blinking a. A a .03? in some towns in new York the Taxe arts ten por cell Tiow Louis Napoleon is altering Paris. A a letter writer in speaking of tho extensive improvements. Now going on in Paris under the influence of the government says there Are at this moment several acres of ground completely deserted of houses in one of the most densely inhabited parts of Paris neat Havre railway station in the heart of the town. Everything 1ms been pulled Doorn to make room for the new Boulevard Lauss Man so called after tho perfect of Paris and other new and splendid lines of thoroughfare s. To look at the huge Gap left and Mio havoc made oae would suppose that a Battery of Cannon had been playing upon the spot Tor Twenty Fiur hours. On the North Side of Paris n Small Mountain is being levelled Down and carted away to fill up a Valley on the South Side Rel Here a sue e of More than a mile Square is preparing for new building Sites Aud will form an entirely new Quarter of the capital. Besides tho stupendous repairs or rather restorations of tho Cathedral of notre Dame and of almost every other religious edifice in Paris half a dozen new churches some of them of Gigantic size Are rising at different Poi of. The new grand Peru a costing millions and is rapidly urged . Then there is the prodigious task of rebuilding the immense hotel Dieu or great City Hospital tho largest perhaps in the world. Aud again in the Northeast of the town in the midst of the great manufacturing and Iron forge District a new a a people spark is being Laid out formed of what Are called tho Buttes or knolls of Saint Chau Mout very High rising ground in a rough state and worked As Chalk and gravel More than twelve Miles of rail and Tara road8have been Laid Down upon this to bring it into order a and five Hundred wagons drawn by steam engines and horses with an immense corps of labourers Are at work upon it. All this of Couse involves indefinite outlay. There Are parts of the town whore the a oldest inhabitants quite loses himself so wholly arc they transformed. I passed through one of these the other Day and found police stationed to show people the Way which i was obliged to ask myself after a fifteen years acquaintance All this is very wonderful and Beautiful but at the same very costly. A scoundrel ruins five Young girls. A tho citizens of Oxford mass., Are considerably excited Over the conduct and crimes of one Lenry Mann a Stone Mason who has been employed in the erection of the new episcopal Church in that place. He has been in the Vicinity about four or five months and in that time has succeeded in effecting the ruin of at least five Young girls from sixteen to Twenty years of age lie was arrested last week upon a change of fornication but got off with a Fine of �20 and costs another charge is still pending upon which he is under $20 1 Bonds to appear tomorrow for trial. He is about forty years of age and is reported to have one or More wives living. It is hoped that the Law will put an end to his career for the Serish brigadier general made by a Little Story. Froth tho Cincinnati commercial the following illustration of the wonderful effect of a a a a Little Story a upon the mind of or Lincoln is worthy the dignity of printing i heard it related by a member of Congress whose words i Bull give of nearly As i can remember Thora r a last summer two members of the House from Maine called upon the president to have a Friend of theirs a colonel in the army promoted to a brigadier ship. They entered the presidents room and found his excellency in a humor not Che Pfost Lively or a Retablo. Something had evidently gone wrong with him and he was not at All pleased to receive the distinguished visitors. Nevertheless he Rose to Greet them took them by the hand told them to be seated and asked them what to could do for them. We called said one of the honorable to have col. A a a Gallant officer and a worthy Man promoted to a brigadier general 44 the president crossed his legs combed his hair with his Ting res and replied As if amp Little irritated 4 id rather see you on any other business than that. This brigadier by Siuess is getting to be a terrible bore. Every Man wants to to promoted and fact is i can to reply with Ono request in a in a getting disgusted with Stich applications so the congressmen let that subject drop for the present and rather than make a abrupt departure which was tho first impulse one of them remarked a what is the news from Kentucky or. Lincoln v 4 yell its not Yery Good said the president. 4 the fact is there Are three kinds of people in Kentucky one is tho unionists Good and True who will stand by the country All the time another is made up of secessionists open and avowed rebels who done to pretend to be anything else and then there is a third that wavers Between the two and sometimes on one Side and sometimes on tho other. 4 that reminds me said one of the listening congressmen of an old worn ont preacher who was going to retire from the ministry. In preaching his valedictory Sermon he said that Thore were three kinds of people in his congregation Good people who were sure Tugo to heaven bad people who were quite assure to go the other Way and a Large number of folks who were too Good to be damned and too had to be saved 4 tho president smiled rubbed hit hands and requested the congressman to repeat that Story again which he did. He then pulled a card and Pencil out of his pocket and said 4 let Roe Sec what is the name of that Man you wanted promoted a tire name and Reg Imen of the colonel there duly chronicled arid Neit Day a brigadier a commission was duly made out and forwarded. This incident ought to go Down to history in connection with others which have been transmitted to us from hundreds of years Back to show what trifling events sometimes effect human life and destiny for weal or woe. Here is a brigadier general made put of a colonel through the instrumentality of a Little Story but for which the eagles would never have been changed to stars.�?T. One of the correspondent of the Chicago journal relates the following interview of a Federal foraging party with a Tennessee Farmer a a at another place to called on the owner a Man of Over sixty years Well saved Yot evidently cast Down and disheartened. He was polite and answered All question Readi by. On being asked what he had to spare to answered a not much ind old nothing Ilia wife and four children standing by him said not a word but countenance of the whole group showed that the old Man told tho truth. A indeed i have1 nothing said be what with one army and another campaigning through this part of Tennessee they have stripped one of All i could spare and Moro too 4 have you no horses or mules a asked the officer. 4 Yos answered the Man i have one Mare mule which is entirely broken Down it was left me by a trooper who took my last horse in its Estad 4 no beef cattle a w is the next question. 4 not Ono was tho answer. 4 any hogs v 4 yes sir i have four pigs which i had intended for Winters Supply of meat 4 any negroes asked the officer. 4 no not one my servants Oil left me two or three months ago. I have not one on the place. I a amp be to chop All my Wood and do All the out door work and my wife and daughters do in doors what they Oan any Corn or wheat v 4 no wheat and Only two or three barrels of Corn was the reply. 4 lets see your mule Laid the officer. It was brought up and As the old Man had said. 4 show me those pigs was the next demand. When he heard this the old Man would hardly a Peak his hop Fca were almost at an end. He showed the pigs however they were no More than such a family Wotila need nor As much in fact. The officer then kindly Baid 4 you May keep All these things they will help you out and can be of but Little Good to us and gave the old Man a 4 Safe guard which might save Hia property from All future molestation from our troops. Three years ago this Man owned a Large Well stocked Plantation and a Fine stud of horses had cattle and hogs in plenty with servants to come at his Call and Corn to sell and to keep. Now to was sincerely thankful and much moved that we spared him his four Little shoats his pittance of Corn and his old Muro mule with which he hoped to make a Small crop next year.
