ai ther Is itlfl another person who can affirm the
truth of the allegations which are already sustained
by tbc Statement of Mb. Clark, backed by tbe oath
of an unimpeachabe witness, ., ; . ,
Some of the Congressmen elect from Virginia,
art much exorcised over their Governor's indiscreet
speech, and which they fear may delay the admis
sion of their delegates last session.
The two, Virginia Senators hav called upon Mr.
Clark to express their surprise, and to dissent from
the doctrines enunciated by Pierpont. ' "
Be true to your lorr. I don't mean to stick to
him, but don't deceivs bint. Let biiu kuow what
sort or n person you are., lell each other your
faults, make known your real opinions, state your
views 01 married companions. Uesp se and abjure
the humbugging which is almott universal among
lovers. Girls keep out of sight their failings, aud
uo their best to cause their beaux to think them
auprels, and men bow like slaves to every wish or
wium 01 tneir lauy-ioves, ana sem to live but to
make them happy. Now that is not as it ought to
be ; it w)U tot be SO atr! marriage. ' The' Woman
will grow we iry of acting her prettiest, and the
man wili not endure all sorts of inconveniences.
and submit to all sacrifices to please the woman
who is securely his own.
It is the dearest pleasure of every true woman to
obey and make happy the man she loves, if he is
kind and reasonable, but bow much better it would
be to teach the sweetheart as to her true uo ition.
I won't say any more to the girls, for as they have
o be wooed and won, and as they have fewer
chancel than tbe men bive, there it mare excuse
for them to put the Lest side out; only let them
strive to keep is out; and we hare no further con
troversy with them. But tbc- men are without ex
ruse for holding out such pretences as they do.-
Cruel, because the pain which the woman will feel
when all his subserviency am! preference to her is
withheld, will be in proportion to .l e pleasure with
which it is received 1 unwise, Uis i biJ be such
t shock to her as to cause her resolutely to rebel,
or silently cease to love. In cither case, the hus
band will tic sorely punished for to long ignoring
their Just relutloiis to each other.'

crazy. I ve always known ber from a- little gal,
when the school ma'am put all the little ones oil

by wiuding her carles over my fingers, smf spelW
ing all. the hard words for her. - And when saowt
come, my band-sled was just big enough to-bold
her and me, tnd I always drawed fter home. And
her Aunt wonld say, with t wicked kind of look
in hrr eye' "John you'll have to bt paid for this
yet, taking so much trouble," tnd then, .bashful at
I was, I had to stammer out, "that h wss only
fun to draw t .e sled," but It was not a light weight
she Was to draw, though I never would own lt-
So I kept on, year after year, liking her belter tnd
better every day,, and she all tat whllt pretend
ing not to know word tbont It. Well, tbe went
away off to visit it Cousin tnd she told fne the

burn it up when yon ge,t home." -. , ,. ,
' Let me cut it off," said 1, so I bail fo get tat

and to pay her for old tricks. ' I stolt what tb

She was vexed, T tell you, end her' eyes flashed1
fire at me, and tbt wouldn't tay Good-bye.1 P

very well, and tht . would once in great wbilt,
talk about old times quite glibly. . .. ,
I persuaded mother to make 1 quiltinj and atkr
all the young folks, and get' Susy to help tier
mark tbe qnilt . She didn't like to refuse mother,' '
as one day when I was gone out of town she cam,
over and marked the quilt, and when got back
she was jest running buck to ber fathers across the
meadow."- ''"''- '' ' " '
. Mother seen it used rat op to havt ber ran tff se
soon, so she said 1 "Susy bas bad feelings at well
as other folkshcr eyes look as if she'd been cry
ing and she didn t want you to see her face." .
She come to the qnlitin, and sht set "the last .
si itch," and that's t sign she'll bt married before
tht year's gone by, and they shook the quilt ovr
her head, tnd mine. ' I went home with her and'
wt talked about Christmas, and she tnid, "where
she was last year they made a greal deal of par.
ade for Christmas, every body kept open boose, ,
and seut present and she helped make wreaths for
tbt Church." ' ' " -' " ';
t thought, about Major Jone's story, so t asked
her if she'd .Accept t Christ mot box from roe, tnd 1

' She raid she would if it warn nt ft costly' affair,''

I bad tbe Cabinet-maker make a nice kind of
cup-board. ' He called it a wardrobe, and varnished
it till you could see your face in it, tnd Saturday
night I brought it home. ...Monday -morning long .
before light, I had it laid on the sleigh and drew. i , -over

I shouted merry Christmas. ' They were soot npy

; She came, and saw the bos. 1 Ned said "Jobs
sent you this Christmas box; here's the key to.
unlock it" The old folks come and they stared
first, then laughed and said: "Well, we'll bring ft'
into the room first not open it out in the porch."1
You may believe it war a lift for them all, to tbt;
hired men came to help carry mo and I am not,

"Myl what's in It Susy? let's see." She un-'
locked the: door, and Uieie I stood -laughing.
"Why John," said her father, "who'd thought of
seeing such dry goods as you boxed, up Christ inst ,

I told tht old folks Susy't promist tnd asked'.
them to give me tht title deeds to her band, for
