Slowly and lesitatiigly she walked
down to the parlour where so many
were already assembled-where her
proud hlusband's Cyc had long watch.

long tarrying in defiance of the rules
of politeness. Here she gained morC
copilosui0, as we, in some trying crisis,
Cft despair of even retaining our
senses. Though paler than ever, liar
smile was bright, and shte was the con
tre of admiration.
"Dear Melantlic you look pale
what kopt you whon I was looking for
you so long.
It was liar husband who spoke to
her, but she scarcely answered, or
on1ly replied, flit is nothing." There
was no kind sympathy ill her soul,
(gen tle though it was) for him.
"This is my wife, Mr. Staniy.''
T.his was the nomuent she had nerved
herself for, but composure suddenly
aigaiin deserted her. Iier brain reel
ed, :ho raised her eyes t) is face, and
oh ! that look, how sorrowful, how re
proachIful, how calmi n,-and yet worse
thant ill other glances to bear, was
the the look of old affection, mingled
with those other looks, which seemed
to long to hold lir to his heart as of
old, but yet no never could. do so
aga in. It was too much ; her sight
failed her, and she sank fainting on
the floor-nono noticed Arthur; till
eyes were ott her ; lo passed out, and
was soon inl the retirement of his room,
where he wept like a child over tho
bitter disappointment which crushed
his spirit. Mlantho was borne to her
chamber. She soon recovered from
her swoon, but was ill all that night,
and for many days and nights after.
The husband whispered "It is too
much excitement we must live more
quietly." To which she fcobly assent
sented. Sometimos the fevor racked
her brain and her mind wandered.
It was one night when lie sat alone
by her, holding her hand, that he
hear.d her pronounco the namo of
Arthur Stanley, and raving w-ildly
about the evening they parted, and
their mocting on that fatal night. Site
told him (Arthur) how dear lie was
to liar still, how that James Burton
she had never loved. Oh ! what words
for husband's cars ! Now he knew
why he could never fathoniher soul.
She had never once spoken to him as
she addressed Arthur in her ravings.
No wish of hers was left uncared, for,
Dr. Burton never failed int kindest
attention to her who was still his wife.
lBut the "dow of afl'ection was gonec,
anid jealously and the darker paission
took its place on that once noble

more to readi her boart; he felt ini the
delicncy of his nature that it was nev

which fate had closed to him.
If we can form tin idea of it all, we
may feel someting of the hoeaviness
of two wedded hiearts which never beat
together. Theirs wore such ; anid they

letter, that when tie Southerin Statei

expects to afliliato with whatever
progressive national party that shows
the greatest, inc(linatioln to stand by prin
ciples and deal justly by us--a party
with the most power to aid in restoring
prosperity to the l 1 South and to the whole
country. 'I'he wa r, as h0 say, has

peoplo acting iunder the recoinstrucion
A i t, al tihe deloorable consec rinces
chat, would ensue, should the Soutitherli
States refue t0 adopt its terms and pro.
v isionts, Ie says very forcibly :
"cShould the people reject a conven.
tioni, when Congress again meets, it will
do one of t wo things, saying nothing for
the present about confiscation. It will
either disfranchise all who vote against
a convent ion or all who voluntarily
engaged in tie robollion- What, would
theit follow ? The commanding geieral
would be directed to make another en
rolinent of the freedmen and the few
white men not disfranchised, and the
question of reconstruction would be re
ferred ' back to them. They would
accept promptly, aid form a cotistitut.iol
for the State and elect, State oflicers and
members of Congress, an(d upon that
organllization the Stato would be adimit
ted into Congzrcss by her representa
tives. Tho present propositioin leaves
probably eight, to niie-.citihs of the
white iien still voters. The next, will
not probably leave the ballot in tho
hands of more than one or two-tenths of
the white meni of the Slate."
And that this would be the result of
non-action, 1no seisible naln can doubt,
for a moment. Already we have the
indication of the spirit anti termper of
Congress in the call for a July session,
in consequence of the A tt orney-G ene
