If I had known in tho morning
How wearily all thc day
The words unkind
Wcuid trouble my mind
I said when you went away,
I had been mare careful, darling,
Nor given you noodles* pain ;
But we vex "our own"
With look and tone
We might never take back again.
For though in the (juiet evening
You may givo me the kiss of peace,
Yot it'might be
That never for me
The pai a of the heart should cease.
How m my go for'.h in tin- morning
That never come h.?mo Mt night,
And hearts have broken
For narah words spoken,
That sorrow can never set right.
Wo havecarcful thoughts for the stranger,
And smiles for the some time guest,
But oft for " onr own"
The bitter tone.
Though we love "our own*' the best.
Ah ! lips with the curve impatient,
Ah I MOW with that look of scorn,
'Twere a cruel fate
Were the night too late
To v.v ia the work of morn.

"Miss Becky Newton."
" Well, sir.,:
" Will yon marry me ?
" No, I won't."
"Very well; then don't, that'sall."
Mr. Fred Eckerson drew away his
chair, and putting his feet up on the
piazza, unfolded a newspaper. Miss
[ Becky Newton bit her lip and went
o \ with her sewing. She wondered
if that was going to be the last of it.
She had felt this proposal coming for
nearly a month, but the scene she
had anticipated was not at all like
this. She had intended to refnse
him, but it was to be done gracefully.
She was to remain firm, notwithstand
ing his :nost eager entreaties. She
was to have told him that though
respecting his manly worth and up
right character, she could never be to
him more than an appreciative and
earnest friend. She had intended to
shed a few tears, perhaps, as he knelt
writhing in an agony of supplication
at her feet. But instead he had ask
ed her the simple question, without
any rhetorical embellishments, and on
being answered had plunged at. once
into his newspaper, as though he
had merely inquired the time of
day. She could have cried with vex
" You will never have a better
chance," he continued after a pause,
as he deliberately turned over the
sheet to find the telegraph reports.
" A better chance for what?" she
" A better chance to marry a
voting, good-looking man, whose gal?
lantry to the sex is only exceeded by
hil bravery in their defense." Fred
WM quoting from his newspaper,
but Mies Newton did not know it.
M And whose egotism is only ex
ceeded by his impudence," retorted
the lady, sarcastically.
"Before long," continued Fred,
" you will be out of the market. Your
chances, you know, are getting slim
mer every day."
"It won't be a great while be
fore you are ineligible. You will
grow old and wrinkled and
" Such rudeness to a lady, Bir, is
monstrous," exclaimed Miss Newton
rising hastily, and flushing to ihe
"I'll give you a final opportunity,
Miss Becky. Will you mar-"
" Not if you were the king of En
gland," interrupted Miss Newton,
throwing down her work. " I am
not accustomed to such insults, sir.
And so saying she passed into the
house and slammed the door behind
"She is never so handsome as
when she is in a rage," thought Fred
to himself, after she had gone, as he
slowly folded up his paper and re
placed it in his pocket. " I was a
fool to goad her so. I shall never
win her in that way. But I'll have
her,", he exclaimed, aloud. "By
Heaven, I'll have her, cost what it
Very different was the Fred' Eck
erson of the present, pacing nervous
ly up and down the piazza, from the
fred Eckerson of a few moments ago,
receiving his dismissal from the wo
man he loved, with such cclm and
imperturbable exterior. Fer he lov
ed ISecky Newton with all his heart.
The real difficulty in the way, as he
more than half suspected, was noi s<>
much with himself as in his pocket.
Becky Newton had an insuperable
objection to an empty wallet. The
daughter of a wealthy Louisiana
planter, reared in luxury, and the
recipient of a weekly allowance of
pin money sufficient to pay Fred's
whole bills for a month, she had no
immediate idea of changing her sit
uation for one of less comfort and
independence. Besides, it had been
intimated to her that a neighbboring
planter of unusual aristocratic line
age had looked upon her with cove
tous eyes. To be sure, he was old
and ugly, but he was rich, and in her
present mercenary state of mind, Miss
Becky Newton did not desire to
allow such a chance of becoming a
woalthy widow slip by unimproved.
But alas for human nature ! If
Becky was really so indifferent to
Fred Eckerson, why did she run up
stairs after that' interview, and take
the starch all ont of her nice clean,
pillow-shams by crying herself into
hysterics on the bed. It was not all
wrath, not all vexation, it was not all
Sique. There was somewhere deep
own in Becky Newton's heart,
feeling very much akin to remorse.
She was not sure she would not some
day be sorry for what she had done
She had no doubt she could be very
happy as Fred Eckerson's wife, after
" But then," she cried, crowing
hot with the recollection, " I never
could live with sucha man,-never!'"
When Fred Eckerson had walked
off some of his feelings on the piazza,
he concluded to take a look at the
river. The Mississipr i, which flowed
within five hundred yard? of the
house, was at the time nearly at the
height of its annual "spring rise.'
Its turbid waters, rushing swiftly to
wards the sea, had nearly filled the
banks and in many places had bro
ken through the levees and flooded
the lowlands for many miles. A cre
vasse of this desciiption had been
made in the farther Dank, nearly op
posite the house, and the windows of
tho Newton mansion commanded a
view of a vast and glittering inland
sea, not laid down on the map. The
main current bf the stream bore up
on its coffee-colored bosom an enor
mous mass* Of floating timber, which
was dashed along in the boiling flood,
rendering navigation wholly impos
sible. The waters were still rising,
and the frequent crashes farr and near
told of the uudeminiugjpdwer of the
current, as sedtlotls. ot the sandy
banks succumbed and aiss.p.peared,
carrying with them the tre<!S which
overhung the ?tr ea m. J

and Miss Becky Newton found
self suddenly immersed in the
flood, vitli her mouth fall of -im
water. In a moment more, somebi
arm was around her and she felt
sell lifted UD and placed somew
iu the . sunshitie, though prec
where, she was as j et too bewild
to know. Getting her eyes op?
last, she found Fred Eckerson's v
ken nearlv brushing her face.
" Well !" '
" Well !"
" Where am I ? asked Becky, s
ering and looking around her.
'? In the middie of the Mississij
replied Fred, "and you are in
fork of a co: ton wood-tree, and
are voyaging toward the Gull
Mexico just as fast as this freshet
" How came you here !,:
" In the same conveyance \
yourself, Miss Becky. In fact,
and I aud the tree all came toge tl
to say nothing of a portion of y

lost to him forever."
Becky was silent. She was thi
ing. not of '.he accident or the p(
ous position, but of her appeara
wheu she was lying asleep on
" How long were you there

" As long as you were. I was

Becky. " It is a hundred miles."
" Yes, and the chance for a fri

She burst into tears.
"You ara cruel," she said, "i
treat me so."
" Cruel !" exclaimed Fred, drav
ing her closer to him, quickly,
" cruel to you ?"
There was no help for it, and sf
again relapsed into silence, quite coi
tent, apparently, to remain in Fred
arms, and evincing now no dispos
tion to rebel. For once in her lil
the was dependent on a man.
" I want to go to New Orleans,

matter of some doubt whether, hac
Fred at that moment, sitting astrid*
that cotton-wood log with his feet ir
the water and his arm around hei
waist; proposed to her a second time
-he would have accepted him or not
To be sure a marvelous change had
come over Becky's feelings since he/
tumble into the river: She felt- just
then that one strong arm like that
which supported her, was worth a
thousand old and decropid planters,
and she recognized the fact that a
man who could talk so coolly and
unconcernedly in a situation of such
extreme peril, was one of no ordina
ry courage. But she was not yet
quit . prepared to give up her golden
dreams. The dross was not quite
washed out of her soul, and she did
not yet know how much she loved
Fred Eckerson. Besides she did not
half believe him.
The clumsy vessel floated on, now
root first, now sideways, and now half
submerged beneath the boiling cur
rent. Their precarious hold became
more uncertain as their frames became
chilled by the cold water, and every
plunge of the log threatened to cast
them once more into the river. In
vain Fred endeavored to attract the at
tention of some one on the shore. The
cottonwood retained a course nearly
in the middle of the stream, too far
.from either bank to render their out
cries of much avail. As it grew dark,
-heir situation grew more and more
hopeless, and to Becky there appear
ed .to be no escape from death, either
by drowning in the darkness or by
exhaustion before daybreak.
Yet to die in this man's arms seem
ed not wholly a terror. She could
hardly think, if death must come, of
any way in which she would rather
meet iii Was it possible she loved
him, and must needs be brought with
in the valley of the shadow before
she-could know her heart. Had she
lloved all along? Whil? she was
-thinking about it, chilled by the night
air, she Tell asleep. .When she awoke
the stars were cut, biiVshe Was w -rm
and comfortable. Raising her head,
she found herself: enveloped in Fred's
" Fred !"
'.You have robbed yourself to
keep me warm. You ?re freezing."
" No I ain't. T took it off because
it. was so awful li ?i.". riii ! laking ?ii!

. ? Shall wc !..,.-?:: wi V
.' ? don't lc no*.-. l*ii! your ?inns I
mound my ? neck. f-r Tm going fr
take mine away.'"
Becky did this time as she was
bidden. She not only threw her arms*
quickly around his neck, but she laid
lier hend^upon his breast, without the
slightest hesitation. In the darkness,
Fred-did not know that, she imprinted
a kiss upon his ? shi rt- bosom.
" Hold fast now !" he cried. .' Hold
on, for your dear life !"
The log had been gradually near
ing the shore for some time, and it
now shot, suddenly under a large syc
amore which overhung the bank mid
trailed its branches in the brown floud.
Quick ns thought Fred seized the
limb above lits head, and pulled with
all his might. The headlong cour.se
of the cottonwood was checked; it
plunged heavily and partly turned
over, its top became entangled in the
sycamore, and a terrific crackling of
limbs ensued. With a sudden spring
Fred gained the projecting branch,
dragging his clinging burden after
him. In another instant, the cotton
wood had broker away ?nd continued
its voyage down the river, while the
bent sycamore regained its shape with
such a quick rebound that the two
travelers were very nearly precipita
ted into the stream again. Fred, half
supporting, half dragging Becky,
worked his way to the trunk by a se
ries of gymnastics that would have
done no discredit to Blond?n, and in
a moment more both had reached the
ground in safety.
"That's a business we are well out
of," he said, when he had regained
his breath. " Now where are we?"
He looked about. A light was
glimmering from behind them, a short
distance from where they stood.
Becky could not walk without great
pain, and Fred lifted her lightly in
his arms and started for the house.
It proved to be the dwelling of a
sjaall planter who'was not lacking in
hospitality. Here their wants were
quickly attended to, and under the
cheeering influence of warmth and
shelter, Becky was soon herself again.
They drove home the following day,
Fred having procured the loan of the
planter's horse and chaise for that
purpose, promising to return them by
Mr. Newton's servant the day after.
The morning was bright and clear,
and the fragrance of the orange groves
was in all the air. Becky, who had
maintained almost utter silence since
their escape from the cottonwood, was
no less silent now. Fred himself did
not appear particularly communica
tive, and many miles ol' the long ride
were taken without a remark from
either. It was Becky who spoke first.
"Fred!" she said.
" You have saved mv life, have you
" Happy to do it any day," he said,
not knowing exactly what else to say.
" I thank you very much."
" Quite welcome, I am sure."
There was another long silence,
broken only by the sound ' of the
horse's hoof upon the road. Fred
himself seemed to have lost some of
his habitual ease, for he kept his whip
in constant motion, and held the reins
" Are you going to write to that
young lady in New Orleans?"
" I s'pose so."
" Hadn't you-better-try again
befoie you-before you write?"
He turned his eyes full upon her,
and opened them wide.
" Try again? try what?"
" I've been thinking through the
night," said Becky, bonding low lo
hide her face and CK. refill ly separating
the fringe of her mantilla, " that
perhaps-if you asked me again the
same question-that you did yester
day morning-I might answer a little
" Becky's hoad went against Fred's j
shoulder, and her face became i'n?nie-1
diately lost to view.
'. You darling!" he exclaimed, " 1
never intended to do otherwise. The
young lady in New Orleans was
wholly a myth. But when, may 11
ask, did you change your mind ?"
'.I have never changed ir," she
murmured. "I have loved you all
:he time, but never knew it until last
And to this day, when Mrs. Becky
Eckerson is asked where it was that
she fell in love with her husband, she
answers, "On a Loy."
Dix's Democratic Republican head
was " level" when he iv fused thc
other day, in a letter to the Mayor or
of New York, to sanction the " ann
ing" of the city police, and drilling
them as a military body. lt. is Bteps
like this, the setting ap of an annal
force, soldier guards, to overawe tho
people, that leads to the final usurpa
tion of power by daring despotism,
?iver on the look out to " strike." ll
there is i? anything in God's earth
that riles the blood of a man, a trite
man, it is an armed petty official,
who, in being tims armed, tells the
citizen that he is looked upon as one
who must be governed and ruled by
force, instead of opinion. We are
glad to see that Governor Dix, Gen
eral Dix though he is, knows how to
discriminate, touching the introduc
tion of military organizations in the
government of a people. " Armed
police" in the United States, whi.-'h
calls itself a Republic, sustained by
" opinion" expressed through the
ballot box, is an atrocious insult to
the people.-N. Y. Day Book.

of kissing each other behind a hymn

FROM the growing popularity and de
mand abroad tor our paper, which,
alter more than seven years of unremit
ting labor and effort, we have tho proud
satisfaction of seeing lirmly established
upon a business basis, we nra convinced
of the propriety of imparting to it a
broader character, and making it a more
general exponent of the sentiments and
interests of the country at large, and
representativo, of its intelligence and
welfare, but more especially of the South
OUR gWN SOUTHERN PEOPLE.
We have, therefore, determined, to the
best of nur ability, to occupy this higher
and wider plane of useluluess, and as a
lirst step towards doing so, we abandon
the name of Thc Sumter News, which
smacks too much of localism, for that of ?
THE TRUE SOUTHRON.
Wo shall continue, as heretofore, to
stand firmly and squarely upon our
principles, maintain our independence,
and to battle for right and truth against
official corruption, venality and fraud
not swerving from the right through mo
tives of crooked policy or fallacious and
short sighted expediency..
We receive no Government pap to help
us along, but look to the men whoso
rights arid interests we watch and defend,
by day and by night, to Sustain us by
cordial and liberal support. We ask all
FRIENDS OF HONESTY AND GOOD UUVERN
to interest themselves in extending our
circulation, and thereby aid us in our
battle against the corruption and villainy
of the party in power, which is fast des
troying tho liberties of our people and
the"resources of the country.

THE Undersigned having established his office at Edgefield, as General
Agent for the Cotton States Life Insurance Company,
invites attention to one or two of the advantages offered those who may
desire to effect insurance on their lives in a safe Home Company :
The Board of Managers at a recent meeting passed unanimously the fol
lowing Resolution :
" Resolved, That in view of the fact that there are unusually large sums
paid for Life Insurance, to the Companies of the North and East, which
sums, being there invested, contribute to the enrichment of those sections,
whilst our own South is greatly in nee 1 of cash capital to prosecute success
fully our Agricultural and Mechanical enterprizes ; it is ordered, that for
the purpose of retaining these sums in our midst, hereafter a certain pro
portion of the net cash receipts from premiums, amounting to not more than
70 per cent, of the same be invested in suck manner as inay be in accord
ance with the regulations of the Company, in those sections from which the
said premiums are attained."
(Signed)' WM. B. JOHNSON, Pres't.
GEORGE 8. O'BEAR, Sec'ry. .
.? In accordance with the above Resolution a Board of Advisory Trustees
has been regularly organized at Edgefield C. H., S. C., with the following
Officerp, viz :
Maj. W. T. GARY, President.
Capt. B. C. BRYAN, Vice President.
R. O. SAMS, Esq., Secretary.
This Board is now prepared to transact business, and invest the funds of
the Company agreeable to the prescribed regulations.
The Financial strength of the Company places it in high rank. Its last
Annual Statement shows thnt the Company possess, besides its large Guar
antee, $170 for every $100 of its liability.
