The man of business sat at his desk engrossed in some scheme of great importance, evidently, for he covered a sheet of imper with figures, wrinkled his forehead, and muítered amounts running up into the hundred thousands. He was rudely interrupted by a young man who rushed in in great agitation, exclaiming in excited tones: “Mr. Clearsteal, your daughter Isabel has eloped—" But Mr. Clearsteal, without looking up, held up one finger, which gesture was always understood around the office to mean “shut up!" and resumed his calculations: “Six noughts is nought, six eights are forty-eight— um, ah—not a bad margin for that deal. Now," he I'emarked, looking up, “what was it you wanted to tell me about Isabel, BÍifkins?" “Youi; daughter Isabel has eloped." “Yes, you mentioned that.” “With the coachman." “What! with John ?" “Yes, sir, with John, the coachman." “Um I singular, very singular," mused the merchant. “I always took John to be a young man of some sense! And so he has elojiod with my daughter Isabel! Let me see, which was Isabel ?" ‘•Your eldest daughter, sir; the fairhaired, queenly blonde, whose beauty capti—" “Yes, yoa, I know—have they been gone long?" “Not more than an hour. By taking prompt measuies they can be overtaken, and your danghlcr rescued from a late worse than—" “Don’t believe l ean spare the tjnie to-day," said the merchant, looking at his’ watch. “I’ve got an iinpoilaiit engagement with Blntfton in half an hour, and if I'm not much mistaken, I’ve got things fixed so that I can skill him out of a cool ten thousand!" “But, good gracious, Mr. Clearsteal, think of the disgrace to yonr family—’’ “Sure cnotighT I came near forgetting that. My eldest daughter eloped with a coachman !. Now, Blif-kins, hear nicl May the curses of— by the way, while I think of it, don't forget to draw on Yelp & Whine for the balance of that account. Confound ’em, they’ve begged oil' long enough!" “And alxmt yonr daughter—" “O, yes; I’ll run home for five minutes and leave orders to have them aiiprehcnded. Call John af once.” “You forget, sir; John has eloped with—" , “Yes, yes, so you told me. Devilish iuconveniciit, too! I’ll have to take the street cars. May the curses of an outraged father—O, say, Blifkiiis, it Jenks calls while I’m gone, tell him I can’t take that corn at those ti<iures. I think he’s in a tight place and n ill have to unload. And remember to draw on Yelp & Whine, Blifkins. And, by the way, you might mention this little domestic alfair, this elopement, you know, to the reporters. It will make a capital ad.’’ And the stern man of business went out into the world to intercept a wavward, misguided daughter, who was fleeing ñx)m a luxurious home. Cfttsrrhal Thro.it affections, hacking;, Irrl-tstiu* Couchs, Colds, cured by “Rough ou Couglb.” 2^ Two years have passed since the thnlling incidents recorded in the first portion of. this narrative took place. It is Thanksgiving Day; but, ah! it is a dreary day for the once powerful and wealthy Clearsteal. Where are now his great possessions, his fine, costly residence, his magnificent store glutted with costly merchandise, his stocks, bonds and all the other evidences of almost unlimited wealth? They have all vanished. An. unlucky speculation stranded hhn, leaving him high and dry—«ixceediugly dry-on the cold, barren rock of bankruptcy. The shock came so sudden that he didn’t have time to save a competency by making an assieru-meut. As ho and the remnants' of his family hover around an asthmatic stove in a fourth stoiy room, his mind bitterly reverts to the Thanksgiving days kc celebrated in so regal a manner in the days gone by. “Mother,” said he, “what kind of a Thanksgiving dinner are you going to give Its ?” The good wife pondered a few moments over this culinary problem, aod then answered: “It I had some cold meat, Jo-siah—" “Yes. mother." “Ana a good-sized onion—" “Y-e-e-s!” “I could use the three cold potatoes wo have left by making some hash." Tho month of Mr. Clearsteal watered as his mind dwelt upon this epicurean possibility; but the chilling fact that the two most important ingredients of this appetizing dish were lacking and liable to remain in tliat condition, dispelled the vision which a hungry stomach made so enchanting. The ruined merchant heaved a deep sigh, as he thought of the garloads of onions and tho flocks ot beeves he had once been able to command, and perhaps it was the memory of the onions which made him drop a tear. In a momcutj however, his coun tenance brigliteued up, and turning to his wife he exclaimed; “Mother, I have it!” “The onions?" inquired his wife. “No; but I have an idea which will furnish us not only the meat and onions, but a regular square, old-time Tlianksgiviug dinner!" “O, Josiah! what a man you are!" “Yes; I fancy that misfortune has not yet overcome me, although it has mo at a tenqiorary disadvantage. You are gware that I have adveiiised for a position as bookkeeper?" “Yes." “And arc aware, too, that I you ai«j' i/vrvFy have an appointment at 10 o’clock in this very room with a gentleman who desires a bookkecticr?’’ “Yes." “Well, I shall close the contract with him." “But suppose he doesn’toflTcr you a salnrv sufficient to enable you to live on ?"■ “Tut, tut, dear, with my knowledge of accounts salary is no object." “I don’t understand you." “No, how can you ? You are a woman. But suffice it to say that it is a poor expert who can not make a salary equal to $2,000 income." And Mr. Clearsteal looked at the cat and Avinked. “But that,” he continued, “doesn’t explain how I am to commaiul the Tlianksgiviug dinner fund. Well regarding this contract, now, I shall stand iijion my dignity. Rather a slim siipjiort just now; hut 1 shall do it, and I shall insist that as an earnest, to put our dem UpTir ^ bu.al. ness footing, the—ah—gentleman Avith Avlioin 1 am to enter into business relations shall advance onc-half the first nioiith’s salaiy. This pitiful fuiid will re-establish my credit with the butcher and grocer, and avc shall be on our pins again. But, hark, isn't that some one knocking at the stair door? Yes, it is. Rundown, mother, and tell the gentleman I am not engaged; hut on the contrary am Avholly at liis service." Mrs. Clcar-stcal did as she was bidden, and as she opeiied the door tAvo feminine shrieks Avere heard. Then Avas heard several oscillatory explosions, and in a iiiomeiit after the steps of three persons coming upstairs Avere heard. The door Avas impetuouslv tliroAvn open, and before the astonished lather stood—Isabel and John, the coachman ! The shock of this situation came with such sudden force that a variety of emotions ill the mind of the father struggled for mastery. His first feeling Avas one of relief that an iinex-lected resource had been developed II the sliajic of a strong, healthy son-in-law, not too proud to Avork and a far better means of support than raiiilly pi'kle; but he" euddnnly remembered that his dignity, the only resource his creditors failed to attach, must not he lowered, so straightening his form, and assuming as terrible an expression as circumstances Avould periiii^ lie thus addressed the returned truants: “Ha! Aviioin do I see before me?" “Excuse me," said John the coachman, with the utmost sang froid. “1 had forgotten that this lady had changed ’ har name since she last saAV you. Mrs. Whiplash, permit me to introduce my old friend, formerly your father, Mr. Clearsteal. Mr. Clearsteal, Mrs. Whiplash, my wife." Mr. Clearsteal Avas disarmed by this cool Impudence, but only for a moment. “Sir!" he exclaimed, “1 have long ago disoAvned that—that—female Avliom yon call your wife. Not one dollar of my property »hall she CA’cr inherit!’’ “No, I reckon not," returned John, “nor nobody else, either, I fancy. But come, come, old partner, lower your chin a little and level your backbone until I tell yon a little story, and if you don’t change Aour mind by the time I get throngii, why Ave’il cut sticks again, and you can finish your little game against poverty Avithout our assistance." That last word, “assistance,” produced its cflfect on Mr. Clearsteal, for the expression on liis face softened as he replied: “Well, sir, I will consent to listen to what yon have to say. Proceed.” “Very good,” said the coachman; “but let us all he seated and make ourselves comfortable. Isabel, lay ofl‘ your Avraps and make yourself at home. Things are not quite as nobby here as Ave arc accustomed to, but we are not proud. Father Clearsteal, when 1 eloped Avith your danghter 1 made a solemn voAV that I would give her all the social and financial advantages which she surrendered on leaving home. To carry out this purpose I Avent straight to Niagara Falls and iuA’ested all my means in a team and hack. In six months I enjoyed a comjietency; but my anlbitioii Avas not satisfied. I wanted to he independently Aveatthy, so I took a portion ot my earnings and (lurchased n hotel. In one year my Avildestdreams of Avealth Avere realized. I am no longer John the coachniuii, hut ilio Honorable John Whiplash, tho millionaire. So, sir, you sco boAV I kept my vow.

Monuments, castles^ ruins, buildings, lioury or memorable it has none. Sweden seems much nioro ancient. Norway appears to yield nothing but rnonntains, valleys and fjonls, the latter as narrow as the valleys and as deep as the mountains arc high. Tho people seem so content with the mountains, valleys and IjoVds that they press no further claim on a country so lavish in these. The land is A’cry thinly settled and scarcely cultivated at all; faririiim has a A'cry limited signification, and the farm liouses are far from Idyllic. They have no well stocked barn, larder, or Avhat people with our ideas would call a dairy; the milk has a queer taste, the butter is bad and the chccsc is worse; the pretty and friglitfully dirty children are to ho pitietl, having no pantry to go to Avith xookies and ginger snap» and pics and pre-' serves. The poorest farmer in the United States can have cabbage and turnips and pumpkins; here, the comparatively Avell to do countryman must content himself Avith flat bread, milk and the abominable cheese, fish and the poorest kind of meat. This i.s not the fault of the soil, however. It is because tho Norwegian peasant rather despises vegetables* from his scant knowledge of them. If ten kinds of vegetables, including asjiaragus, and seven kinds ot berries will groAV in Tromso, at nearly 60 degrees north latitude, tliis is proof evident that they would groAV further soutji, if the natives Avould make the atttlmpt to cultiA’ate them. I devoutly Avish that a fcAV skillful Americans would come here and do missionary AVork by planting large gardens and raising vegetables and fruit fur the market and to provide for the hotels. A snp-[ily of the best American garden seeds would be ail inestimable blessing, and a colony of Miss Parloas and Marion Ilarlauds Avould win the hencdictiuiis and thanks of the whole grateful world of tourists, if they would teach in Norway the art most needed and which only a tour in NorAvay, under present circumstances, Avoiild load one to appreciate properlv.

A nnroan was started in the Secretary’s office for the purjiosc of starting the same. It was called the Loan and Treasury Note Branch of the Secretary’s office, and the employes Avcre nearly all ladies. “Mrs. Fanny Steele, daughter of Commodore Buron, of tlie United States navy, and a Mrs. Du Vail, of Philadelphia, were the first two ladies introduced into the Treasury. They were engaged to act as clerks at $600 ptr annum. Mr. lIoAvard, Avho Avas at the head of the trimming and cutting branch, had about 100 women under his supervision, and their (jnt-ies AVcre to trim greenbacks and bonds.

The work was carried oti day and night ami Sundays almost Avithout intermission. The salaries were increased to $1)00 and soon after to $1,080 a year The first year of the war was run on a specie basis np to the first day of December, 1861, but on the first day of Janitarv, 1862, the sjiecie payments Avcre discontinued and onlv paper money was circulated. Over 60,000,000 ot these demand notes Avcre issued out of a loan of $250,000,000 issued by an act of Congress dated July 17 and August 8, 1861, Those same demand notes snhscqnently became receivable for customs duties by a special act of Congress. Tlie notes were of the $5, $10 and $20. “These original demand notes or greenbacks wore at first signed only liy the Secretary of the Treasury, but a sitbseqnent act of Congress gave the clerks power to sign for the Treasurer and Register, and in still later issues the signatures were- jilaced ou by the engravers. “For a period of over two year» this department received in the neighborhood of half a ton ot these bonds, to act as fractional currency and greenbacks daily. All this had to be worked and the official seal placed upon them in the department, after which the notes were tleposited in the Treasury. Great caro'Avas taken in the preparation of these valuable scraps of paper. They had to pass through fifteen pairs of hands and twenty-two counts before they Avcrc eligible for admission into the hands of the Treasurer. The jiaper Avas manufactured by Wilcox & Co., of West I’hiladelpiiia, and cugraA’cd by the National Bank Note Company. The paper Avas fibrous and manufac-tnred by a special patent process.

I The completion of Mr. Fronde’s biography of Thomas Carlyle is an cvT'iit which Avill be remembered long after the merits of the present Jispiit% bctAvcen lords and commons have become almost inconceivable by the human mind. He may not have been, as Mr. Fronde declares, the only thinker of his time, but he Avas un-qjiestionably, as Goethe declared, “a iicAV moral force in Etiropc." No man did more to re-invigurate the conscience and restore vigor and virility to the moral sense of tho nation than Thomas Carlyle, and the incmoiy of that great service rendered to our race should silence the carping tongue of ingratitude and envy. It is not out' intention here to ctilcr into any criticism of Carlyle’s life, now at last fully i-ov.>a1oi1 to tti» l»y iiio La?i<l of Ml'. Fronde. We know all iioav. And now that the Avorst has been said— and the Avorst Avas only said by Car vie himself in the exaggeration of self reproaeli—there is no reason to withdraw one jot or one little of the reverence and aflection Avith Avliich Carlyle lias hitherto been regarded by his readers. But he is no faultless iiionslcr. and, take it all in all, his was a noble life, lived nobly through to a noble end. That Avhich is of special interest to ns to-day is to note the extraordinary, and to. a largo extent niiiioticcd, crt'ect which Carlyle’s teacliiiigs have had upon the politics of onr time. Carlyle has proved liini-sclf to be one of the most potent political of forces of oitr time. We she it every day contributing to strengthen the distrust of Democracy in itself. We call onr Government constitutional and pa’.’liamentury, and so, no doubt, it is—ill form. But, in fact, we arc governed by a succession of dictators. Yesterday it was Ivord Bcacoiisficid, to-day it is Mr. Gladstone, and whenever any dlf-ticiilty occurs the cry is ever to increase the po AVer of the new sovereign. Carlyle could not have been more loyai to Oliver Cromwell than is the caucus to Mr. Gladstone. The outcome of fifty years of reform is, that power almost as absolute as that of u Czar IS intrusted to him whom the nation believes on the whole to be its ablest mail; or, as Mr. Carlyle used to say in bis curious jDii)«logy, the ctiiiliiiiG; or tlic man who can. Tlie great doctrine of the free hand, or tho recognition of the truth that Avlicn yon appoint yonr ablest man to carry out yonr policy you must not overrule his knowledge by yonr ignorance, but allow biin to act as scents best in his oavii eyes, is distinctly Carlylean. This democracy which he sco.iicd has proved more amciiable to his teachings, more receptive of his doctrines than to those of any other teacher. He may not have founded the school of believing radicalism of which he dreamed, but tliere is very little of vittil faith in the radicalism oi to-day that does not owe much to the inspiration of Thomas Carlyle.
