THE YEARS GO BY.
A child sleeps undor a rose bush fair;
The buds swell out In the soft May air;
Sweotly it rests, and on dream wing files
To play with the nngels in Paradise.
And the years go by.
A maiden etands by the rose bush fair ;
The dewy blossoms perfume the air;
She presses her hand to her throbbing breast,
With love's first wonderful rapture blest.
And the years go by.
Another kneels by the rose bush fair ;
soft sigh the leaves in tihe evening air;
Borrowing thoughts of the past arise,
And tears of anguish bedim her eyes.
And the years go by.
Naked and lone stands the rose bush fair;
Whirled are its leaves in the autumn air;
Withered and dead, they fall to the ground,
And silently cover a new-made mougd.
And the years go by.
FOILED BY A WOMAN.
A LEAF FROM THE DIAIRY OF A DE
"Madame, it is my duty to ar
"You dare not!"
The lips wore white with pas
sion rather than fear, and the lady
stood before me like a lioness at
bay. Even then I could not but
note the splendid beauty of this
grand lady. Tall and slender,
eyes black and flashing-almost
lurid now, the spectacle she pro
sented, standing there in the mid
dle of the apartment, was more
the appearance of a queen than a
"I must," I replied, "1 do not
doubt your innocence. Looking
into your face it is strange that
any one could couple it with guilt;
but I am constrained to do my du

"Will you allow me to change
my dress ?" she said, in a tone al
most pleasant. The hard lines
around her mouth had relaxed,
and the passionate ;glow on the
face gave way to a pleasanit smile.
"Certainly, I will wait for you
"I wish also to send a nmossen..
ger for a friend ; will you permit
him to pass ?"
"This was my first interview
with Eugonia Cornill. I had seen
ber here for months, the leader of
our gayest and most fashionable
society. In her splendid mansion
she dispensed with the most pro
fuse and elegant hospitality.
A Spanish lady-a widow she
had represented herself, and had
heen a reiden t here almiost a year.
No one ever suspected her of be
ing aught than what she seemed,
until one day I was ordered to ar
rest her as a murderess.
It was nowv alleged, said Mr. F.,
that this young beauty was no
other than the woman who had
poisoned her husband ini Iavana,
.and fled with all his wealth. An
immense reward was offer ed for
her apprehension, and the circumi
stances that had come to our
knowledge p)omtedl her out beyond
all doubt as the person we were in
search of. Yet the person who
recognized her the evening before
at the theatre advised us to be
careful lest she should escape us.
I laughed at the idea. Mr. I, and
fnyaolf wore surely sufficient to ar
rest a lady. We were old enough
in the ways of cunning to def'eat
any such attempt. When the la
dy loft me, I stopped to the win..
dow, and said to Mr. I, who was
waiting at the door,
"The lady desires to send ames

and so another hour went by. At

khiocked at. the door.
There was no reply. I knocked
repeatedly, and at last determined
to force an entrance. Strange
fears harrassod me. I began to
suspect I know not what. It took
but a moment to drive in the door,
and, once in the room, the myste
ry was revealed. The robcs of
the lady lay upon the floor, seat
tered over the room woro suits of
boy's wearing apparel, similar to
that worn by the mulatto boy.
On the table was a cosmetic that

I was foiled, for a surety; the
lady had escaped in the disguise
of the messenger. I should have
detected the ruse; I felt humiliated,
and determined to redress my or

main in the city an instant longer
than she could got away. I hur
ried to her bankers, but found
that she had drawn the amount
due her an hour before.
"Who presented the check ?" I
asked of the clerk.
"A mulatto boy. It was made
payable to bearer."
There was yet a chance. '.ho
French steamer left within an
hour. It was possible she would
seek that means of escape. I
jumped into a cab and arrived
there ten minutes before she left
the wharf-just in time to assist
an aged decrepit gentleman into
the cabin.-There was a few pas
sengers; none of them answered
the description of the person I
sought, I stood on the wharf
watching the receding vessel until
it disappeared. I was in the act
of turning away, when a hackman
approached me with the remark:
"Mr. F., did you see that old
man on board? Hie had a long
white beard, and hair that fell on
his shoulders ?"
"Well there's something curious
"Why, sir, when he got into my
carriage he was a mulatto boy,
and when he got out he was an

I will not repeat the expression

Innocent or guilty, there was a
charm about her none could resist.
The spell of her wondrous beauty
affected all who app)roached her.
It lingers in my memory yet, and
I could not have the sin of her
blood upon my conscience.

r asnions ror February.
No remarkable changes have
taken place in fashion since the
advent of short walking-drossos, b;
and the trains fdr evening wear. ~ c<
The difference between this win.
ter and last consists mainly in the
fact that cloaks are more worn,
ladies apparently finding suits l
hardly warm enough for our cold ci
climate ; also, in the additional t*
height of the bats and bonnets, and n
the vogue of the handsome Astra
chan furs, which have been re
ceived with great favor. n
Fur is not much used for trim
ming, though it is somewhat al- a
ways; but it is probably too cost
ly, and has too much competition b
in newer and fresher styles to a
render it popular.
The arrangement of shawls as a
cloaks and mantles, which com- d
monced here last winter, is very o
common this season, and therefore
less distinguished. Plaid shawls, c
as well as cashmere shawls, are d
arranged in this way--plaid shawls
being also worn as Arabs.
Cashmere shawls are simply
looped up in the middle of the
back, and confined at the waist
with an ornamental tassel contain
ing the cashmere colors. The
neck is laid in folds at the back,
and finished with an ornament
corresponding to the waist.
The unique pattern of a real In
dia shawl is seen to great advan
tage in this close-fitting disposition 1
of it, but it soon gives it a worn u
and somewhat shabby appearance. b
Velvet cloaks have established
themselves so closely in the affec
tions of American ladies, that it p
would be extremely difficult to
displace them. And after all, r
there is nothing so handsome and
lady-liko as a costume composed t
of a well-cut velvet cloak, richly
trimmed with laceo,.a neat, grace- f
fiul set of furs and a becoming vel
vet bonnet, with feathers to match
as a decoration.
The effort to get rid of upper- d
skirts has not at present succeeded. b
They are as fashionable as ever
with both long and short dresses.
With trained dresses they are made
longer than formerly. t
The fashionable use of China 0
crape in white, pink, blue, and
corn-color, has brought into requi
sition crapo shawls for tunics and
over-dresses. Those shawls are
looped up on the back orsidesvcry 11
high, but fall in deep fostoons. a
The fringe forms a bordering, and
additional trimming is arranged
wvith ruches of satin ribbon above
the fringe, and loops or round bows e
of satin ribbons as or-naments. a
YANKEEs8 IN A CH!ALESTON P
Couar--Ono of our "dead head" g
subscribers, who happened to be
over in Charleston the other dlay, n
tells the following: 8
A follow representing a Bloston i
bucket factory came ashore from o
a stow~ner, car-rying about a dozen al
diminutive specimens of his moer
chandize, and taking up the flu-st ,a
street he came to, ofter-ed themn
right and left. Hie had not pro
gressed far before a negro police
man arrested and carried him be-n
fo a coal-black justice, charged n(
wvith peddling without license.
The sable magistrate not only
fined him the cool surn of $100, jE
but roundly lectured the man of cl
buckets upon his conduct. lie1
paid the fine and left the "coimrt" ci
and city in thorough disgust. e
On the same day another drum- t<
mer from New York was arraigned n'
before his sable honor for the same ci
off'ense. The drummer insisted w
that he had sold nothing, only be- w
ing offering, but bad made no sales. ol
WVhereupon the 'black dignitary si
told him to prove that, but while tc
bunting up his proof he must leave el
850 by way of bail, TVhe drummer w
handed over the money, wvent out cc

cbants, who stated that he had "j
sold nothing to them. After the gl

3redulity of the Journal, which
WO wore Rhown yesterday the
model of a new railroad and ma
3hinery invented by 11. A. Wilder,
Esq., for which ho has mado ap
plication for a patent, by which
the trip can be made from Now
York to San Francisco in sixty
hours, including moderate stop
pages at the principal points, with
much more safety than on the
present road. There will be four
rails laid down instead of two for
it single track, and will be laid in
such a manner that the road can
be used in various ways. We are
not at-liberLy at present to give
the full particulars, but this much
we can say, that the passenger
and freight cars can be built sov
enteen feet wide; that they can be
run at the rate of sixty miles an
hour, with double, if not treble,
the safety over running the pros
ent cars at forty miles an hour.
That a double engine of sixty
tons will take 1,000 passengers in
a single train, with less wear and
tear to the roadway, than is now
caused by a thirty-five-ton engine.
The expenses of building such a
raad will be about 83,000 a mile
more than building one of the
present single-track roads, which
for 3,000 miles, from New York to
San Francisco, would be an extra
expense of only $24,000,000. A
single passenger, merchandise, or
baggage car, capable of carrying
doublo the number of passengers
and double the quantity of mor
rhandise, will weigh at least five
tons less than any two of the cars
now in use. The capacity of the
road, single track, will be nearly,
if not quito, three times as great
as that of the present single lines.
There will be no oscillating move
mont in the cars when running at
a high rate of speed, and it is al
most impossiblo fur acar to be over
turned in case of an accident. On
such a road, with passenger cars
seventoen feet wide, they can be
