Kitty needed no second bidding. The
little table was covered, as if by magic.
The Incious butter, tbesnow white bread,
the tempting preserve, soon invited the
trio to dinner. The humble blessing
asked, they enjoyed the meal in silence.
Kitty Clyde was the belle of the vil

we all know that people will talk that
Harry Jones was Kitty's bean, an insin
uation .which Kitty indignantly denied.
Be, matters as they were, the truth is, Kit
ty was a little inclined to coquette. Free
and open liearted, of good disposition, pret
ty faco and figure, Kitty liked to be admir
ed. To be sure, away down in her heart,
something whispered "you love Harry
Jones ;" but then she conld not be satis

When and' Where the Dissolution Con
spiracy was Plotted.
It is now ascertained boyond a question
that the conspiracy to dissolve this Gov-,
ernment in case of Lincoln's election has
its root in the Cabinet of Mr. Buchanan ;
but it is not as generally known thst the
eggs of the conspiracy now hatching were
laid four years ago, at the Cincinnati
Convention. At that Convention Mr.
Buchanan is supposed to have entered in
to a convention with the delegates from
the Atlantic and Gulf States, who were
generally opposed to his nomination,
binding him to take precisely the course
which Mr. Cobb has recontly been mark
ing out for him. Tjia Jacts upon which
this impression is based were reported in
the Evening Post of that date, and subse
quently were made the subject of editori
The following extract from a letter da
ted Cincinnati, June 6th, was written by
one of the editors at the time, who heard
the speech referred to :
"No little sensation was produced in
the Convention by Black of Pennsylvania,
who closed a speech of thanks to the
Convention with a quotation from the
Bible, which, in its application, import
ed that incase of dissolution of the Union,
Mr. Buchanan and Pennsylvania wonld
go to the south, of course taking with
them the army and navy and public treas
nre of the country. This is the most lib
eral bid the Sonth has ever yet received
from any Northern statesman. It com
pletely takes down Douglas and his Cen
tral American slave empire. It is pre
cisely what the nullifiers have for years
been trying to get. What part, if any,
this pledge from Mr. Black played in
procuring the strange and hidden transi
tion to Buchanan's ranks in the conven
tion this morning yet remains to be dis
closed. You may be assured that no
further question will be made at the South
about Buchanan's soundness on the Kan
sas issue. The nullifiers are now ready
far. disunion, as they were for the admis
sion of Texas, at the earliest practical pe
riod. The' verses which embody the new
declaration of fealty to the South, and
which were o noted by Mr. Black, are in
the 16th and 17th verses of the first chap
ter of Butb, reading as follows:
" 'And Ruth said, Entreat me not to
leave thee, or to return from following af
ter thee : for whither thon goest, I will
go; and where thon Jodgest, I will lodge;
thy people shall, be my people, and thy
God my God. - -ji:.

Joit then, there chanced to be cooking his eye,
Uncle Bam'a head-keeper, I. B.,
Who eanght the bold Fowler a poaching so sly,
All nnder the greenwood tree, tree, tret.
All tinder the greenwood tree.
"Oh, what are yon doing!" the head-keeper erled,

"I'll have yoa Ukeo aad boned aad tried.

"For oat of this game my friends (ball be fed,
And yea shall be first, d'ye teal aeel aeet

Bo a bargain was straightway struck between
The Fowler and aly J. B.;
And many a year, in the forest green,
They feasted right lovingly, lee, lee.
They feasted right loviag-Iy.
Bat after a while the keeper grew old,

Said Uoele Bam, "at the Doaglat bold,

So the Fowler bethooght him to take bit game

And straight to the friends of the Donglat be came,

"Ho! bo!"'qnoth the keeper, "If that's your way,

THE DEAD OF 1859.
The year 1832 is known in modern
history as the "aristocratic year of death,"
for the nnmber and brilliancy of the fa
mous names which star its long necrology.
In that year Literature bade farewell to
Goetbo and to Scott ; Science to Cham
Dolion and Cuvier. Then Bentham clos
ed his eyes in pesce npon the trinmph of
the English Katorm bill ; and lenteraen,
the mlinz passion strong in death, lifted
himself from his nillow with his last
breath to bid the "Gentlemen of the Ju
rv" onca more "retire !" Perier, the
one premier who might perhaps have fix
ed a constitutional throne in France, and
Mackintosh. Mme. De Steel's "Mr. Har-
monv." who criticised all parties and
commended none, passed away together;
social science lost Say, and phrenology
Spurxheim, and learning tho astutely la
borious intellect of Butler. Then, too.
faded ont of a world in which he found
no place to fit at once the greatness of his
name and the frailty of his nature, the
shadowy form of the second Napoleon,
whom Austrian soldiers bore to an Aus
trian grave with the Archdukes of hie
Such a year, indeed, deserves a place
apart in the solemn Fasti of the world.
But the year which ended last December
may claim to stand beside it for the wealth
and ripeness of the great sheaves it has
yielded to the old nnweared reaper. It
has been a marvellous year in many ways,
waking.tremendona issues of war and
trouble on either side of the sea, of which
no man can foresee the end. But if it
had been a. still, . slow, year of prosperous
peace, unshakea by the thunder ol can
non. unmarked by-the, fiery cross of rev
olution and insurrectioB, the passionate
ennflir-t sf trraat nolitical -principle, it
still wonld be memorable in the annals of
mankind. Ever and anon, amid the hur
rying noise of the dajr, we have been star
tled bythe. fall of some majestic fame
which bad stood aa a pillar in the midst
of the age 'The mere catalogue of the
dead of, 1859 is an eloquent .chapter of
history; suggesting alitnaj illuminate.
and makes mighty tne eenrary in wuico
we live. There is, indeed, scarcely one
denartment of conspicuous human activ
ity, which has not .lost, during the past
twelve months, one or mere puis cnosen
and accepted leaders ; 'anil the world may.
well begin to look 'about, it for tbeT cap
tains who are to take.np the bantons'this
year fallsa from strong and. worthy hands.
Science, the mistress of our civilization,
mourns in JStephenson aad Brunei, two
oftlhe chief Titans of the age ot steam.
Thev died in a few weeks of one another,
while fresh achievements were sounding
thsir names abroad, more loudly than
ever over earth. - Inlk Victoria Bridge,
aad the Great Eastern steamship, each
had attained his latest thought, pregnant
in each case withatill grander resulU yet
to be won. But not by them. They
test. fitlT enough, among the kings aad
the heroes of. England in Westminster
Abbey. These ' Were masters of Science

the enduring past baa won front ns the
greatness of a patriarchal philosopher in
thsTiarae of Humboldt, who. carrying
. f-'' T - .. a. TT'"al r at
his vast freight of geaiaa'aad of learning
with aa unwavering kaad through n il
lustrioua career of more than ninety. years,
ended as peacefully as he had lived a life
devoted to truth and to his fellow men.
And around these central figures what
a cluster of eminent workers in every
path of scientific knowledge. Lardnsr,
whose name is in some sort, synonymous
with the popular diffusion of the results
of philosophical inanity; Nichol, who
labored so eloquently in the same field ;
Bond, Nnttall, Olmsted ; America mour
ning with Europe.
Lirarature began the funeral procession
of the months with the almost simulta
neous obsequies of Hallam in England
and of Prescott in America. These ac
complished historians, who won their
first golden spurs at almost the same mo
ment, died within one week ; and by a
enrious coincidence, this double loss
which letters were called to sustain in
January, was matched at' the close of the
year by the equally contemporaneous de
cease of Thomas De Qnincey and of
Washington Irving. Another conspicu
ous name within the restricted circle of
the highest literary culture of our times
must be chronicled with these, that of
Sir James Stephen, Professor of History
at the University at Cambridge, and who
had long exercised a sort of consultative
supervision over the education of the heir
of the British throne. The world of pol
itics has. almost literally closed over the
tomb of a great statesman whose doc:
trines had ruled the councils of Europe
for nearly forty years. There is some
thing worthy of the Tragic Muse of
Greece in the close which awaited the fa
tally brilliant career of Prince Metter
nich. His every success had been a seem
ing victory over the laws of progress,
over the rights of men. And never had
man been more seemingly successful than
he, alike in Court and Cabinet Talent,
personsl beauty, power, fame, wealth,
had all been lavished upon the diplomat
ist whose skill had shaken, down, as it
was fancied, the whole fabric of the
French Revolution. He had long passed
the ordinary limits of human life, had
seen one after another of his great co
temporaries fall around him, and was re
served himself to witness at last the utter
downfall of the great system he had foun
ded ; the uprising of the Revolution, and
even the returning ghost of the Emperor
he had chained so strongly down upon
the rock in the Indian Sea. The last sun
on which he looked shone down upon the
battle-field, of Magenta.
' But the trinmph which France and
Freedom won over the death-bed of Met
ternich was not unalloyed. The death
of Alexis de Tocqueville robbed both of
a loyal and gifted champion, who has
left behind him but few in any land that
are fully worthy to wear his mantle.
In our own country the ranks of our
public men have been less sternly swept.
Two diplomatists of respectable rank,
Mr. Rush, of Pennsylvania, and Mr. Ma
son, of Virginia, have been taken from
us, and three Senators have fallen, two
of whom, Messrs. Geysr and and Han
negan, who had retired from political
life. The death of the third, Mr. Brod
erick, of California, is not likely we may
hope to be soon paralleled in our annals,

guinary lesson. une most aoio sou

Occasional, the Washington corres
pondent of Forney's Press, in his Utter
ofthe 16th nit., says:
The apparition of a Republican tri
umph begins sadly to trouble the Disun
ionists. They have said so much against
Douglas, and have so loudly declared
that they prefer Lincoln 'to him, that they
now contemplate their fate before their
own people in the event of Lincoln's
election. The Republicans themselves
regard the tribulations of these gentle
men with the utmost philosophy. They
will be rery anxious to secure a certain
Southern support of their Administration,
and are casting about for the most com
petent Southern men who will agree to
serve as Cabinet ministers under Mr.
Should Lincoln be ohosen President,
there will be a sad and mournful proces

various departments. Protected, as Mr.
Lincoln would be, from the avalanche of
Southern annlications. which has rolled

since the organization of the Govern
ment, and no doubt rescued by patriotic
resitmations on the cart of those who de

the nossibflity of a new regime. Their
dissolution of the Union is their removal
from office : their idea of the destruction
of the Democratic party is the receipt of
a yellow envelope enclosing a pome re

violation of the Constitution is the ap
prehension that the places wbish know

1861, know them no more forever.
An idea of the way in which the office

defeat of the Democratic party in No

There is scarcely a' man; woman er;

Thomas Jefferson to the Presidency, and
ushering into existenee the first Republi

backed by not only the whole weight oi

withstanding the people rone in their
might, turned out the government; blot
