And NinK's pretty head settled

chair with reluming indolence,
iiut the instant her e.vo fell on the

girl, who advanced
'timidly into the room, ushered by
the stately Hawkins, she sat upright
with genuine surprise depicted in

'Anna Wharton ! is. it possible

'Then you recognize me, Nina?'
said the stranger, faintly cf'ms'in

schoolmates together at Madame
Sauriat's, that I thought I feared
you would '.scarcely remember

'Sit down,' said Nina, ratlier un
graciously motioning with her heavily-ringed
lingers towards a chair.
'What can I do for vou V
Miss Wharton did not sit down,
however it might have been that
biie was repealed by ,the extreme
coldness of Nina's manner but
went on speaking,- in a he-itatinir,
uncertain voice. ,1
Of course you have heard of our
mislorf unes, Nina my poor father's
failure and, death, and my mother's
subsequent decease ?' -
'I had not heard of it,' said Nina,
contemplating her dainty slippers.
'People, in society have so many
tilings to think and ta'k about!': -
'There is, no; use,' resumed Anna,
trying to conceal the' fact that

Hut Nina To'ham was a woman of

muiuerence: : . .ir .

genial lire. ' '. '
'What exquisite. corals.1 I could
not buy them for a hundred dollars!'
was Nina's exclamation Ihe moment
she was left alone. 'Keally, I think
am the most luckiest little crea

Hut then -she was obliged to sell
them, and that of course, makes all
the difference in the world.'
'And now I must go and order 1
that new bonnet,' soliloquized Nina, j
untaxing in uraceicis 011 ner pretty

them admiringly 'for Doctor Carle

quietly. 'I never saw but one person

who is to share his life, and .
Here's your bonnet, Alice, all rHit

'As you always aro' said Alice,
laughing. ,Your wife, whomsoever
she may be, will have sore need of
the Uivine gilt of patience !'
'A man ought to be in a hurry
when forty patients or so are still
down on his list, and the sun scarce
an hour above the horizon !' said
I)r. Carleton, philosophically, as he
lifted his sister into the sleigh.
Nina relham was never in better
spirits, and had never looked love
ter then at the moment she entered
Dr. Caileton's trim little slegh, in
the dazzling winter noon tho next
day. The exquisite plumes of the
new French hat floated like a soft
cloud above the pink roses that
harmonized so perfectly with the
faint flush on her cheeks: and
though the embroidered drapery of
ner arms tne coral bracelets gleam
ed like rosy serpents. Her lips were
smiles, her eyes all liquie bright-
tiess: and although -Jin
Ir. Carleton was unusually silent
he arranged tho lootmril -l(;
robes pf the sleigh around her, she
chattered on, full of levity and girl
ish vivacity.
'Why, where are we going?' she
exclaimed, as the. spirited .horses
suddenly- turned into an un pretend
ing and secluded street,-instead of
darting Parkwards. .' -
'I am taking you to-day in an en
tirely new direction,' said Dr. Carle
ton,;o6niposKdlv-. 'I -was called yes

, 'Is it possible it'- ejaculated Nina,
with well-acted surprise, although
the cold 'sinking afjherlieart nearly
choked her '.voice.' ' 'Poor, 'dear
Anna i nope she is' well!'
Tar from it,' said ;. tho young
physician,', gravely.',. And what
is harder still to. 1. ear, sho is iu great

lie looked penetratingly ' at fier

I wish Ilrad known it !' 'said Nina,
artlessly, 'it would have given me
so much pleasure to assist her.
Why did sho not come to me for
aid i I should so like to see her again
' 'Your wishes shall bo gratilied.
I am bringing you to her humble
homo to-day.' returned Carleton.
gravely, as he drew up his horses
close to the curb-stone. Allow me
to escort you up the stairs they
are somewhat steep and narro' to
unaccustomed feet.
Mass Pelham - following him,
scarcely knowing what sho was
about, so chagrined and bewildered
was" she at tho unexpected turn
events had taken .As they reached
the second landing-place, ho threw
open a door y and beckoned her to
enter. .
Tho room revealed to ho sic-lit
was very small, and scantily furn
ished, yet exquisitely neat. On a
low couch, near the white-curtained
w indow, lay a sick child, with wan,
attenuated cheeks, and eyes that
seemed to burn with preturnatural
lustre, nd close beside him sat
Anna Wharton.
'Miss Anna, said tho doctor,- as
sho rose in . some- surprise at their
entrance, 'hero is your friend, Miss
Pelham. I wish her fully to under
stand, through' you, that IiAm per
fectly aware" of th'edeptH artdsiV
cerity of her friendship, as exemp
lified in tho case of thoc.-ral brace
lets sho now wears.' .
Nina turned pale and red by turns
she almost, wjshed that' tile earfli
might open and swallow her tip, ' so
bjtterly mortified was -she at that
instant,,. 1 . ; .: - h-.yoq.-:
.Wait a niomout,if you p)oq&,Misa
Pelham,' said'Dr, Carleton, with
freezing politeness, 'Allow me to
return this five dollar bill to you,
as Miss Wharton who is to become
my wife in the course of a few
weeks has no present neod for ir
Iler gratitude is of course propor
tioned to your extreme generosity.'
My servant Mill drive 'you to your
home,' ho added,, 'as circumstances
debar my ' accompanying Vyou in
person.' ; s .
And Nina Pelham left the room
with the comfortable conviction
that slid had lost a lover, and Anna
Wharton had 'gained one. 1
Is it strange that, under' tho cir
cumstances, sho thought tho coral
bracelets rather dearly bought?

Hill,
Iii the Ohio House of Representa
tives, on the question of the dispo
sition of the Soldiers' Relief Fund,
during the morning session of Feb
ruary 7th:
Mr. Hill of Defiance was in favor
of having this money distributed to
the counties under the present, law.
To do otherwise would be a mani
fest injustice to a number of coun
ties in the northwestern part of the
State. It was true, perhaps, as some
gen tlemea? had intimated, that some
of the counties were receiving more
money under" this law than they
paid into the .treasury but it was
also true that those same counties
had furnished more than their quota
oi men during the late was. He
remembered that when proclama
tions were issued for troops, and
drafts were impending, that agent?
lrom Cincinnati, Cleveland and
other cities, visited the counties of
Defiance andPauldingwith pockets
full of greenbacks, and with their
largo local bounties induced hun
dreds of their youn: men to so into
the army as volunteers for their re
spective, wards ! and . totv nships.
Now, that their bodies had been
shielded from rebel bullets by these
men oi the northwest, many, of
whom had fallen in battle, they pro
posed to rob their widows' and or
phans of bread to save the wealthy
men of the counties from paying a
little tax. Let this monev iro to
those, who deserve it. The propo
sition now before the House was
like balancing so many ounces of
rrtoney against somahy ounces -.of
blood, and he protested against this
wholesale robbery of tlje people of
Northwestern Ohio, simply because
they were so unfortunate rfs to he
poorer than other localities. Thev
had sacrificed their live for the J

Military Interference at

Vicksburg, Jan. 30.
was, created by the
interference of the military author
ity at Vicksburgwith the execution
of the vagrant laws .passed at the
1 J. i i 1 r . . .
msi session oi tne Legislature, ihe
law permits the courts to punish ,
by tying up by the thumbs, in addi
tionto imprisonment, and also per
mits the '-hiring out' of all such per
sonsto the lowest (time) bidder to
pay the jail fees. It seems that Gen.
Grant has issued a general order,
(No. 3,) dated Washington, Janu
ary 12, 180G, instructing. division,
department, &c, commanders to
protect all persons from suits for
official acts during the war, &c., and
concludes' thus : "And also pro
tecting colored persons from prose
cution iu any of said States, charged
with oll'enses for which white per
sons are not prosecuted er punished
in the same manner and degree."
Now, as soon as i this - order U; de
ceived, it is discovered by the indi
vidual calling himself Van E.
Young, that tho ' county court is
punishing negroeS by tying-them
up by thumbs, while they are not
doing so with the-white: people,
whom they put to work on the
streets in the city. Representations
aro made, ad orders are .issued to
stop this discrimination. vAi order
from post headquarters are then is
sued, not prohibiting any diacrim-
itiativrj ; Imt nullifying the law by
stopping all punishment allowed
by the law, and ordering the whip,
ping post to be taken down. Now
the very first case piuij'sked by the
county Court in; Warren . county,
was a white boy, who was tied tip
by the thumbs. But it does not
suit Mr. Young's purpose to se to
this. Hei can only see that "nig
gers" are treated so, and makes his
representations accordingly. A
simple , investigation would, have,
shdwu that tlie lawMd. hot discrimf

ished by.' the , court was, the , only
