MY LOVERS TWAIN.
My lovers twain-my lovers twain,
I pray you let me be I
To wed you both I would be fain,
Only that Inay not be.
One love' i 1 like musics weet,
That steals my hcart away,
Antd one is like the trutpot blast
Which calls me to the fray.
Oneis f ente,conrteouls mindl,
To low and high degree
And one Is stern and harsI of mood,
A nd melteth but to nme.
One is mti strangely loveslble,
'Tihat but to touch his hand
Do women kneel-before the one
Do nica uncovered stand.
And it' I this one do not wed,
Ito never wife will seek :
And if that one I du not wed,
lie sorroweth a week.
My l.vers Iwain- ny lov,'rs twain,
Ye sIull have let Inc he ;
I love the one with all mny heart
Thie other loveth nie.
By MISS ?IUi.OCK.
Botter to love than to be loved
Better to servo. nn:t serving guide,
r'han wait, with idle oars inproved,
And ti.rpping sail b.y each brenii m-'vcr,
The turniig of life's solemn tide.
Live, wt!<, Ftud love ; as leaven assign,
For Iiit-aven, or mnua, thy sacredl part
Ancesiress of a noble iino,
O' cali i irienitsuy declinte :
liBut keep till death the wotnan's heart.
A DETECTIVE'S EXPERIENCE.
A WOMAN'S CONIESSION
'A few day's ago,' said Mr. F---,
intelligence reached us that a Milan
-aul:er had absconded with an ins
moutse amount of money. It was be
lieved he had fled to this country and
taken refuge in Now Orleans. A
young Italian girl was the companion
of his flight. Together with a de
scription of the timtan was a miniature
of this girl. Sho was 'very he:mlttiful,
And tiht inanimato ivory pictured a
ftto so winsomo in its youth and inuo
cence, so trustful, so coniliding, that.
my heart ached as I looked at it.
Montls went by in tho fruitless
alorclt' fur tho erimitna. If hero, his

Ono might report 'cached the sta
tiot that the body of a dro,vIed worn an
had been drawn from the rh rer. She
had been dead but a few hours, it was
said, and was elegantly clad, j,tY
young and beautiful.
Why, 1 could not divine at the
tile, but I felt ia strange desiro to seo
this girl. I Inontioned the fact to
Mr. [----", and we walked togother to
the river. The body was laid out on
the pier, and the lovely, upturned faee
was magnetic in its bauttty. A wealth
of black wet huir fell back frot the
broad, low forehead, cxpuosing a face
rounded and full in its rresh npring
time beauty. 'I'Te long lashes droop
ed darkly over the pale undorlids, and
the chiseled lips had not lost their
deligate curve and crimson stain. Th
soft, ipilky skin showed beneath it the
olive tint it had worn in lire. The
clinging dress but imperfectly -
cealed each rounded ji.,n and the
exquaisito outlin'% -I' not y
I f'elt , .-ange attraction in looking
a1ts dead woman. She must have
feen un,urpassingly lovely when life
was instinct in tito framso nsow so chill.
TPhe warms nun of her native land ciould(
no)t htave been msore lustriouts thantt hert
cycs wvere then. I felt thast I had seens
her before. T1he conviction growv up
ont mse as my eyes bsecame rivited ont
bior features, Th'Io fuce haunted me.
For an htour miy momttory waRH at fnult,
biut it camoe at last. Like a flash, re
Shte was the original of the picture.
E~agerly I bent forward aund tracedi
ag'ains and again eacht ouLlinoe of I'aco
and figure. TIhere could bo no mtis
t ake--the lineamients were Liha same.
On examining tihe body it was dis
covered that she6 hiad been murdered.
A deep penetrating woutnd int her side,
mtade with a small Spantisha dagger,
w licha yet filled thte cavity, disclosed
the meitasof liar death. This kunifus
bore the liitiatls E. F. They did niot
tstantd for bor name nor tisat of liar
bettrayor. It was a costly weapon, for
mi the handle was a brilliant of value.
Itook the knife to a joweoler, and ask
ed him to examine it once, lie took
it antd examined it closely. Tlhen
front his desk lie broughtt a jewel set
in gold, en which was a lettering pre
'Whore did yougot this?' I asked.
'From a customer of mine; a ladly.'
'Whore is she to be found ?'
l[o showed me a direction. It was
lhsat of a lady of fashion, a Cuban, vis
ihirg itn the city.
I went to her at once. Otn mention.
ing my name site showed evident signs
o f inea smess, and motioning me to a
privto roim, begged with white lips
andlt a faltering utterance, the nature
of tmy errand.
- [ detailed the circumstance briefly.
I told her of the criminal, the flight
an d escape, of the deoad b)ody ; I show
edI her the knife, and the ring I had
obtamiued at the jeweler's.
'Madame,' I concluded, 'I must
atrrest you for murder !'
.)li no I no, no,' she cecaimtedl 'I
wil confess all ; nt 'nine the sin, not
mino the deed !'
She thon told wiho the mian wvas,
whe6re he lived, and the circumstances
that ocoasioned the poor girl'k death.
It appeared from her statement that
some weeks before- the bankers had
wearied of the young girl, and had
altiudoned her. He~ had then paid
bas.court to her, and not knowing his
anteoedente and* -'udglng of him by
the slWsion es held In society, ha(
consepited t,9 mArry . him. Thtat the
evegIng pro"v,.she bad been vralk

tbere in the moonlight, they had been
approached by a female clad as thi
one was. ipbraidings. and angry rc
proaches followed, and tho girl, in;th
maciess and frenzy of her distross
threatened to reveal a secret. ''h

The woman told her story truthfu

Tuo troubled eyes of the speaker
were filled with tears. It was a lad
that stood, one cold day in winter, at
the outer door of a cottage on a bleak
moor in Scotland. The snow had
been falling very fast, and the poor
boy looked very cold and hungry.
"You may come in, at any rato, till
my husband comes homo. Thero sit

to the warmest corner ; then, suspi

Day after (lay passed. and yet the

consideration, concluded that, as long
as he was such a good boy and worked
so willingly, they would keep him.
One day, in the middle of winter, a
peddler, who often traded at the cot
tage, called, and, after disposing of his
goods ; was preparing to go, when he

in a,few days past well calculated to
inspire hope if not confidenee on the
part of Virginia that she will be call

next is now pending in the Judieiary
Committee of the Senate, and there
ms reason to believe that the bill w#iH
remain on the files of the same com

defeat the programme of the carpet
baggers in Virginia, but will leave the
State under military government un
til the meeting of the next Congress.
[However much the State may regret
a continuance of the military-system
yet it is vastly preferable to a carpet
bagO overnment, under which it is
proposedl to disfrancehise the white
p.opulation of the State. Prominent
eitizons of Virginia who are here seem
deeply to ro ret the odelay. To eon
