'Wait a moment for this one.'
The speaker was a middle aged geu
tlcmen, Mr. Morton, who was rapidly
writing the address on sonic letters.
The one waiting was a clerk in the
establishment of Morton ?fc Co., Tre?
mont street, corner of Dover, Boston.
'It is necessary for these to be mailed
to-night to go in the iirst train to P. in
the morning. There in a samall amount
of money in one of them. It ought to
be sent to the P. office, I suppose, but it
is too late, and I guess it will be safe
enough to mail it In a box.'
'Yes, sir.'and the quick-motioned.
handsome youth of nineteen went to
the nearest letter box and der?
ibcin therein ? ? ? ?
Mr. Morton looked up from a pile of
letters lie was perusing as Byron
Forcythe entered at bis summijns. 'I
received no receipt for the money 'you
mailed last Tuesday evening. Did you
make no mistake !" eyeing the youth
?I mailed them, sir, at the corner,'
he returned reapectfully, ibe rich blood
mounting to his cheek as be compre*
hended that be was under ?tupici?n.
'Strange,' muttered Mr. Morton.
?Warran is always punctual?never
knew carelessness like this on bis par!
be/ore?you can <?o now.' He dashed
off a note to the gentleman in Prsvi*
dence and mailed it.
The next day he r? eclvedanswer lhat
the money bad uol reached there. He
again summoned bis young clerk.
'Do you still maintain that you mail?
ed the letter all right ?'
'I do. sir.' Again the blood rushed
painfully to Ins face at the Imputation,
Mr. Morton, eyeing him Brjspiciously
through his classes tbouglit it a proof?!
'1 liave written to Warren, and In
informs me that lie never received tin
money. You see. sir. under the cir?
cumstances, I can barfly trust you
You may be innocent, but it looks
picious, I cannot retain you longe:
| unless I have complete confidence h:
' you. I do not say that you have acte?
dishonestly, but it looks dar!;, sir, dark.
And Byron Forcythe, with his prou 1
sensitive nature stung t? the quick b!
the unjust suspicion, went outoi tin
employ of Morton k Co.. with hii
?scanty earnings in bis pocket, to bi ?-.l
Two policemen belonging to statioi
5. Boston, met at the junction of their
respectivo heats, corner of Trcmontanc
Dover streets, aliout three O'clock a,
m. TbeOiSelves in a shadow, they
'spotted' a man standing at the n
letter-box, sesmlagly engaged in some?
thing questionable. After glancing
around hastily and discovering no one
in the dim starlight, he unlocked the
box and transferred the contents to his
pockets. He repeated the preces* at
the next box. When he reached the
third box, the officers, who had followed
stealthily, concluding that the situation
was ripe, surprised him by a heavy
hand on etch shoulder, demanding
what he was about.
T am mailing a Utter, he said.rcadil.v
reeling the interferrence. 'Can't b
'A letter, yes. Let us seethe con
ten ts of your pockets.'
Finding himself cornered he pro?
duced a handful of letter?.
'Sorry, but we will have to invite you
to take a walk with us.' And, form?
ing a squad of honor, they escorted him
to the police station. lie seemed t<>
have something in his hand that he
wished to be rid of. Thej gave way
purposely, and soon heard a Blight click
on the pavement. No: easily b.illi. d, a
?harp search with matches brought .1
duplicate key to light. Arriving at tlie
lockup they relieved liira of the leiten
and left him to await his trial.
Mr. Marion, running B*% ev s over
the columns of the Journal, lighted
upon this item:
'The man whom officers While fend
Patterson arrested for robbing 1> ttei
boxes has confessed that it was Dot his
first offense. A quantity of mail
matter has been found with him. union.!
which he owns he found several sums ol
money. It can be seen at-de?
partment of the po?tolff'je.'
Mr. Mortou rode down to the office.
Asking to seo the recovered mail
mattei'8, he ran his eyes over them, and
was not much surprised to find the ones
he had given to his olerk to mail that
Tuesday evening. The money had, of
csurse, been abstracted, the envelope
having been carefully opened at one
end, and it ?till contained the note that
had accomnanied the ni?.nev.
'Never knew such a thing before,'
thought Mr. Morton as he rode home?

Letter iroai Uotky fonirorl.
IiuiToR Gkkat Southwest:
Dear Sir?We have two active partici
politic here, namely : the Nationa
Greenback and the Rcpublican-Dcmo<
crat'c-Bellmout. But a majority of oui
most honest and wide awako citizens
endorse the National Greenback party
on account of the good it can and will
do, while on the other hand wc severe'
ly. though justly, denounce the othei
party because of evil that it has done
and will undoubtedly do if it remains in
There are some who object to the
Greenback platform, beuausc, as they
say, it is a scheme fabricated by ctrtaiu
politicians to ?livide the Democratic
party. It is erroneous to conclude thai
this new movement is tire result merely
of a split in the Democratic party, foi
the records of most sf the Greenback
clubs throughout the United ?jStates will
show about the same number from both
the old parties, who have joined the
Grecubackcrs. It is true that the Dem?
ocrats are divided, and the same is true
of the Republicans, for every honest
and intelligent man, who heretofore in
his blindness clung to his old party
with the vain hope that it would give
rulief to an oppressed people, but at
last awoke to a realization that he had
been deceived, has deserted the ranks o?
a parly which has failed to fulfill its
pledges to its constituents, legislating
in in-half of monopolies against the in
! terests of the people. These are the
1 men who have espoused the Green
- hack cause.
Y'cs, with gratification the writer
adds that both parties are divided.
( weakened, lost, ruined, as they justly
ve to be. And now they stand
? paralised, while the triumphant shout
| of a new party, which deserves the
sympathy and support of every true and
: patriotic man and womm, comes to the
of the oppressed millions, whose
- swell with thanks to God.
It is true that there are a few whom
; we hear blasphemously croaking from
| their sheep's clothing, words of denuu
? dation for the Greenbacicer and vainly
trying to defend their obnoxious laws.
But the working people of the United
States have h. en Imll.lozed long enough.
Another objection is that there are
too many ignorant persons, uaraely,
farm? rs connected with this Greenback
ment, In reply to this the writer
asks if the tenor of all laws is not 1er
the greatest good to the greatest uutn
Then do not condemn or censure'
the National Grccnbacker.
Again the National Grecubacker is
[Snored because be wants an absslute
irredeemable paper money. What log?
ical reason can you assign for objecting
to such a money? Does not history
and common sense teach us that suca
a money is, iudced, the prime requisite
to the welfare of a nation? The want
of an absolute, irredeemable paper
monej Is emphatically what has brought
our country into Its present condition.
Soma denj tin* ; they refer us to the
fact that the money that was issued in
time of the war was lawful, absolute
t. inli'i'. The platform was good enough
which was testified to by Sec. Chase at
the termination of the war, when he
said: "Inmy humble judgment, if out
of this war this cirrcncy becomes SS is
. led in our platform so that the la?
borer, at the end of his day's work, re*
: ceivei bis dollar or two and shall be
perfectly sure that it will net turn to
dust ?vr a.thes, what more docs he want ?
? If the government is administered as it
should be, every dollar in greenbacks
Will be as good as a dollar in gold.''
j Fonder over this, ye corrupt pthticians,
if your petit minds can retain so much,
Sad *cc if you do uot stand ou slippery
rod. Yes, the money and the law
were good, but the law was violated
and yet there arc a few shallow minds
by theiiilluence of a little aristocratic
?hat persist in violating the laws
of our nation.
If the government had been adminis?
tered as it should have been, this issue
of paper mon ay would have been equal*
ly as good as gold and neither would
there have been any probability of its
turning to "ashes." But the govern?
ment was not administered as it should
have been, therefore our paper money
ha? not been at all times equally as
good as gold. It has turned to '?ashes"
because of unjust administration on the
part o*f our government. We have
Bjmpatbhf*. With and fought for our
government, and uow as our first re?
ward for all this it has legislated against
us and placed burdens upon us too
hi ?ivy to bear any longer, and now, ex?
cept it redress our ?vrongs, WS will syni
natbize vsith it no more.
Our money has been turned to "ash?
es" and an unlawful anti-democratic
bond lias, been given iu return, which
has drawn from lahor | hundred mil?

CHILDREN ABANDONED TO THE NURS?
ES, HOUSES DESERTED AND STORES
A letter ?written trom Memphis on
the 19th inst., gives a vivid description
of the conditi on of Grenada. The
writer says that twelve houses to the
right and sevcu to the left of bis home
where deserted, and for hours together
not a person was seen stirring in a once
happy neighborhood. The groceries
were closed, nearly all of its proprie?
tors having fallen victims to the scourge.
Being assured by physicians that one
who has recovered trom yellow fever is
exempt from it ever afterward, tho
writer tried to find his acquaintances
and assist them. He says :
'I saw at least ten of them dead, and
scores of them dying, or slowly await?
ing the crisis of the ?epidemic. It was
appalling to behold young and obi
women huddled i.i some by-way, trem?
bling, praying, sobbing and casting
despairing glances in every direction,
not knowing whither to go. Mothers
abaudoned their stricken children ; wives
tied in terror from their afflicted bus
bauds. All the ties of kindred seemed
to have been too frail to withstand the
pressure of fear and dispair. The loved
ones were left in strange hands. Ne?
groes and n?gresses who bad bad the
fever proved very useful in some in
stances; but many of them took advan
tage of the situation, and asked exhor
bitant compensation for their service!
on account of the scarcity of the How
ard nurses. I saw as many as thrc?
white nurses seized with the 'shakes'
and even with vomiting while in tin
discharge of their duties.?Three day;

him and found that it was unmistakabh
a case of yellow fever. I assisted hin
to one of the tents near the police sta?
tion, where I fear he is to be anion?,
the list of the victims. I do not be?
lieve that one-third of the cases of tevei
in its most maliguaat type among the
uegroes have been reported. I thought
it my duty to report to Dr. Becks, who,
I suppose, would refer the matter t?
the authorities, the many horrible sights
I had witnessed in some negro cabins,
wUere, lu some cases, whole families
were prostrated by the fever?even
three in bed in two instances, and dy?
ing children sprawling on the floor.
'1 canuot omit mentioning the hero?
ism of the Sisters of Charity. Their
ministrations arc tireless ; their temper
is never ruffled in the least by sleepless
nights, spare diet, aud constantly at?

dying. Where they sleep or eat I
could not divine. I saw the same faces
arsuud day and night, and again at
dawn. They carry medicines about
with them, work like bees in disinfect?
ing houses, and have a magical faculty
?f raking up clean linen and bedclothes
in out-of-the-way places. I also saw
several clergymen who were behaving
in a very disinterested way, one of
whom had not removed his clothes for
three couseculivo nights. It is nol
