luxury and rank. The youngest and love-1
hest of the two had just emerged from the
water, and with' a loose robo thrown around
her, and ono loot etlll dangling in the cool
li(uid, sat in a pensive attitude;, while her
companion who was evidently of lower
rank, was endeavoring to console her.
"Nay, do not dipair," said tho latter.
"Your father may ndent. Surely if you
throw yourself nt his feet, and tell him
that you love ruiolhor, ho will not force
you to marry this ftrango prince." .
"Al.n! you littlo know the Caliph," re
plied his. daughter. "When oneo ho has
resolved on a course of conduct, ho is in
exorable. It poems I tras proini.-ed to this
prince in infancy. There is no hope."
And bho burst into tear.
The j'rinccss Amrn, or as the poets ol
Tsuahan cullod her, ' (J-ul sed berk" the
roio of a thousand leaves, had lived to the
age of seventeen without loving. Her life
had been rpent wholly nt (ho favorite coun
try palace, or rather the hunting seat of
the Caliph, a day's journey from tho capi
tol; her only employment being to walk
with her female slaves, to play on tho lute
iind occasionally to go hawing, a s-port still
followed in the East.
One day, however, while flying her fal
con, Amra became separated, lor a lew
moments, from' all her attendants except
her favorite feinalo companion. Ju-t at
this crisis, n leopard, pursued by some
hunters, nnil mad with rage at tho los of
hcrcubs, broke from a neighboring thicket,
and beholding the young princess, with a
fierce growl sprang upon her. The beast
alhrhted on the haunches of the tiallrev
which Amra rode, nnd the next instant the
faii"s of the wild animal would have been
fastened in tho princ, ss. had not n hmoo
hurled with unerring aini, whizzed by and
tran fixed the savage a: -ail int. Amra nu'l
tho leopard fell to the ground together, tho
first in n swoon, and the. lat stone dead.
The hunter who had thus opportunely

This epistlo, ns maybe supposed, opened
Amra's eyes to the folly, or if not the ful
ly, the hopelessness of her lovo. Had hcr
suitor been within call tdio would have
thrown hcr-clf into his nnns, willingly
sacrificing wealth, rank, and a father'
blessing for an humble condition in life,
shared with tho young hunter who had
won her virgin heart. But he was far
away, nnd no shadow of escape was open
to her. .Sho taw, with agony inexprcssiblu
that submission was hor only course; but
-ho thought day nnd night, how terrible
would bo her lover's anguish, when on his
rvturu from tho wars, after seeking her in
vain nt the usual trysting place, ho should
loam that fiho was lost to him forever.
Tho conversation between hcr and hcr at
tendant with which our story begins, had
been on this mournful theme; and it was

a refreshing coolness around. Through
the lattices a view wa3 obtained of tho
pavilion, which w"a3 full of fragrant trees,
at every' gush of ' tho breeze, sent its
aroraatia odors thro', tho apartment.
The Heart of Arara beat fost, for she
knew that whilo her slaves had been at

arrived; and she expected every moment.

With theso words the incensed parent
turned and left the apartment, bont on
seeking out nnd punishing the guilty.
Amra watched him till the curtain con
cealed him from 6ight, and ther,8ank back
on tho divan with a fchriek. Tho room
reeled around her tho. next instant, after
which consciousness deserted hnr.
When sho came to herelf he was re
clining in somo person's arras by the side
of tho fountain, and her face was profusely
wet with water. Sho opened hcr eyes. A

a cry of joy, and mado a feeblo effort to

or it will bo too late. And sbo gazcU

ed to rise, snd gazed at him in wild as
tonishmcnt, "I MH Princo Unfix, who chose
to woo his brido beforo receiving hrr, be

The reader may well bciicvo the nuptials
were not delayed, and that tha princes
never looked lovelier than on that occasion.
Tho Caliph forgot his anger, and forgave
everything, when he heard that tho hunter
and Princo Ilafiz wire one.
To this day," the story of the Caliph's
daughter is tho favorite lay of the maidens
of Shirez; and often, as evening falls, tho
soft notes of their flutes, and the sober
notes of their voiceB rehearsing it, float
through tho closed latices of their harems.
'TiE "Molly ! MAaratEs.,'' A '. new
Dcmocratio secret political association ha3
been organized in Philadelphia, under the
title of tho "Molly Maguires.'" Tho Phil
adelphia Bulletin describes it as follows:
'.'It is an Irish Democratic . Polititical
Association, secret and "oath-bound," like
tho I'Know' Nothing" order, which, under
the regular, open name of the American
Union Benevolent Association, exercises a
controlling influence in Democratic nomi
nating Conventions. We . do not know
how tho members are distinguiohed, but it
is understood that tho two green lanterns
which hang over the platform at tho rally
in Independence Square on Thursday even
ing were the signals of the order. Tho
officers wcro all Irishmen, and the promi
nent members aro among the most conspic-
uous wire-workers in tho party. The con
fusion at tho Into Convention at Spring
Garden Hall was occasioned by a fight be
tweentho "Mollys and the American Dem
ocrats, both factions having candidates for
nomination in the field. . Many of the "or
der" hold office under the Federal Admin
istration in this city. As the order is en
tirely a Catholio affair, ve imagine there
will bo troublo in the ranks of the untcr
rificd; we hear 'growling even riow from
American Democrats, to tho effect that the
"MoIIvb" hold too many offices already." :
CttAPIIIC INSCRIPTION, OF- JERUSALEM.
Tho Jerusalem correspondent of the
Boston Tost graphically describes the ruin
and desolato. condition of tho Holy City.
He says: .
"Tho women, clothed from head to foot
in wlii to sheets, with their faces concealed
by a black veil, rescmblo so many ghouls
just risen from their subterranean abodes:
more especially as they havo a great fancy
for cemeteries, whero they daily congre
gate to howl. No sound of youth there
aro no boys in tho streets; no sound 6f
wheels thtre are no carriages; the dogs,
mangy and wolfish, snarl and gnap when
you disturb them in their daily work as
scavengers, and make tho live-long night
hideous with their contentious; tho , very
birds do not sing, but cry to each other
with a dissonant chirp, or complain with a
harsh murmur. From tho horror3 of the
city, if wo pass to tho environs wo find
naught but baro rocks around, Btones and
dust beneath; tho brightsun, reflected from
every object, burns into the brain, no grass
no trees, no green thing, tho promenades
are cemeteries; tho scats aro whited sepul
chres. ' Hero havo been buried whole gen
erations of Jews; hero aro the bonos of the
Assyrian, tho Egyptian, tho Chaldean, tho
Persian, the Greek, tho Syrian, the Koman,
the Saracon, the Crusader, tho Turk. In
fine, Jerusalem is naught but a "heap" of
mouldering bones and shattered houses.'
Forensic Eloquence. "What!" laid
an Illinois lawyer, throwing into the Dion
osyllablc the wholo high prcssuro of his
indignation, "docs tho plaiutiffin thiscaso

tho jury, I ran only ssy that if they does,

There was a general cry cf "order, order!"
Tho learned gentleman was arrested and
confined for contempt. '

DICIvINSON AMID THE rHOPIIETS
A correspondent of the N. Y. Evcuinu
Post, writes as follows from Cortland:
' A funny scene occurred in court hero a
day or"to since, of which your friend
"fkripluie Dick" was the hero. IIo was
aoting as counsel in a suit, the purpose of
which- was to break tho assignment made
by Mr. Sherman, of Homer.'
Tho Counsellor found it rather pretty
hard sledding ; ho handled tho "witnesses
soraowhat roughly, and made them gener
ally fed as if they would liko to catch him
alono some day for a few minutes behind
tho barn. . '. ' . .
Ono of the number had mado tho caBe,
and incidentally Dickinson's behavior, tho
subject of conversation as he was riding
home one evening, pending th trial, and
next day was put upou the stand and ques

A Topciiimo Temperance ArrEAt.
Tho Editor tho Abington Democrat re
lates tho following of an occurrence on
South sido railroad last week:
"At a station near Petersburg!!, an
elderly gentleman came into the cars, ac
companied by his daughter, tie was a
tt ranger to us; but there wero about his
countenanco thoso unmistakcsblo marks
which betoken tho too habitual uso of
strong drink. At tho next slopping place
tho daughter's attention was attracted by
something outsido and sho put hcr head
out tho wiudow. J lie old man slipped out
of his scat, sank down on the floor, and
drew from his saddle bags a bottle of rpirits,
from which ho took a hus'y suck. Just
as ho lowered it from his mouth the lady
turned around and caught him in tho act.
Sho renched forward, and Inying her hand
on his shoulder, mildly said, "Oh father,
father!" "My dear daughter," said he.
"I jmt took. so much" measuring the si9
of his dram on his shriveled fore linger.
His face woro such a ludicrous expression
of phamo that we could scarcely (-mother
a laugh; while at tho same time, the dis
tress depicted on tho rouutcnanco ot tnc
daughter, as hcr eyes filled with tears, af
fected us so that we could almost have
cried through sympathy. The lady .drew
hcr veil over her lace, bowed ncrncaaanu
sat motionless for an hour, weeping over
the fraility of a beloved parent. And al
though we kept in company a hundred
miles or moro tho flask of whibky was I ft
untouched in lJu: willel.,r

THE MIOKEHS AND THE
Tho Brokers seem to be cutching it on. til
hands; and they perhaps descrvo all that
they are receiving. Those Banks too, which
havo made bargains or contracts with tho
Brokers, such as are mentioned in tho ex
tract below, deserve In just as high a do-
gree tho public condemnation. Wo take
the following paragraph from the Abingdon
Virginia. . . .
"Wo somo time ago took occasion to call
attention to the unfair operation tf Bro
kers, and tho ruinous power thoy wcro at
teinptiiiK to acquire over the Bauks. Wa .
had been iniformed by those whoso busi
ness relations enabled them to know, that
the Brokers had combined, to tako runa
upon all such Banks in Virginia, as refu-
sed them loan3 at long-taw time and that, ,
too, without interest We allude to mora ',
than one Bank in the Commonwealth a-"
round which tho Brokers had wound their '
coils, and which had boucht -exemption "
from -"tans," by large loans, on Jong time, ,
without interest. At that time, thero was t
scarcely a village along the lino of our
railroad, where a Bank was located, that !
was not honored with a Broker's age at;
and at Abingdon, for months together, v.'t
had a resident agent, who was constantly
receiving packages from Lynchburg, and
as often might bo seen trotting between
the Depot and our Bank. This, we sun- '
pose, was becauso the Bank here refused -!
the "Black Mail," and -every dollar of its
paper that the Brokers could get hold of,
was hurried back to the agent, whodeman. J.
dod and received the specic." ' -V-
A.Siosificast Movement. We men-
tioned a few days ago that the Cincinnati
Commercial charged the Democracy in that '
city with having become Americanized.
We find that a largo number" who have)
heretofore aptcd with tho Democratio party
in Hamilton connty, Ohio, have abandoned ;
it nnd united with tho Americans upon a
full tiekctforeounty nndoitv officer, t Sef-
cral of the members of the Dcmocratio
ifxccutive Committee participated actively
in this movement. This split in tho Dem- '
ocratic party is attributed to disgust at tho v
Irish Catholio influence by which the Dem-' '
ocratio Convention was . controlled. Tho r
uii'on of Americans and conservative Demo- r
crats wos effected at a meeting of the Amer-
ican party held in Cincinnati on Saturday; "
'at which a paper, numerously signed by
Democrats', was presented, proposing a u- ',
nton I'd ween the Americans and the disai
foctcd Democrats The signers guaran- ,
teed & vote of -thirtj-fijo hundred on tho '
part of tho Democracy who wcje dissatis- ,
isf ied with tho action of tho party in it '
convention. Tho proposition was accop-
ted, and-the candidates previously nnmi- ;
noted by tho American party having withi, ;
drawn, a union ticket was presented.
Bailroad Suspension. We under- .
stand that, on yesterday, by a voto of tho
Directory, it was resolved to mnko a total '
suspension of tho work of nil kinds on tho '
Knoxvillo and Kentucky Railroad. W '
havo only timo to announce tho fact with-
outcommcnt. Wo deeply regret that such '.
a step has been deemed necessary. Wo .
think tho suspension can only bo tempo- '
rnry. The Company havo. an amplo sup
ply of county .bonds, but ho stringent has
been tlio money market, that It was found '
impossible to negotiato them, except at '
most ruinous rates: Knoxvillc Kr jitter.
