Soon after his return from tho West,
Loander began to importune his father
for a bioycle ; but Aristarohus refused on
aji count of his youth, as he was now only
thirteen. But the entreaties of Leander
havins: put into his father's mind the
thought of a bicyole, the thought boou
grew to a desire, and the desire to a reso
lution, which was ere long announced to
me in an interrogative form characteristio
" Don't you believe, Cordelia, that a
bieyole would he the beat thing to keep
up my health ? You know the doctor
Baid I miist live in the open air as much
as possible, and a bicyole does not coat as
much as a horse, and requires neither car
riage, barn, nor food."
Juciing by your friend Dobaon's ex
perieiice, they consume a large amonnt of
clothing and incur some dootor'a bills," I
replied. "Mrs. Dobaon told me the
tailor'a bllla nearly drove them into bank
ruptcy, aud you know be aprained his
ankle at one tirae, and put hia shoulder
out of joint another time."
" Oh 1 but Dobson was alwaya reckless,
and then he didn't understand how to
manage the thing," aaid Ariatarchus, in a
tone ttiat implied measureless sunerioritv
I tnade no oppoaition, for I saw plainly
that a bicyole was a predetermined addi
tion to our modest establiahment, against
'which I should strive in vain.
When the steed arrived, Aristarchus
made his first attempt in the back yard,
and we all pathered at the door to share
the sport. It was in the early days of
bicycle riding and bicycle suita were un
known, bo Aristarchus wore hia usual
bnsiness suit. He seeuied to fiod some
difficulty in establiahing a balance be
tween himself and his steed, so Leander
proposed to walk in front and lead the
animal, but was sternly ordered back by
his father, who then discovered that Mi
randa Dorothea was seated on the little
wheel bebind, in amiling expectation of
a ride, and she had to be dialodged. As
she got off, the thing started up unaaked,
and went half-way to the front gate, and
snddenly collapsed and lay flat on the
walk, baving thrown Aristarchus into a
group of roae bushes, from which he
preaently emerged with zig-zag red linea
crossing his face in token of his en
counter. "That was a neat one, father," cried
Leander. " You didn't expect to lie in
a bed of roaes thougb, I guess. Waa it
"Stop your nonsense," growled Aria
tarchus. " Of course a fellow can't ride
when his whole family are grinninc at
He would not bepersuaded to tryagain,
though Leander offered to tie him on with
a rope, and Jliranda Dorothea assured
him that he would not tip off if he rode
tbe little wheel I
After this he took his rideB by himself
in tbe comparativo aeclusion of one of the
back streeta, and according to hia verbal
reporta be was fast becoming a skillful
rider ; but to judgo from tbe dilapidated
condition in which he usually returned to
the " bosom of his family," he was ac
quiring his skill in a costly manner.
Sometimea he came home minus a hat,
somotimes with a torn coat, sometimea
with ragged pants ; sometimea he came
home with a lame back, sometimea with a
lame leg, and somotimes with a black eye ;
whether he came home covered with duat
or encrusted with mud depended ontirely
on the weather and the consequent condi
tion of the streots. But he waa never dis
roayed or diacouraged ; the power of en
durance and the cbeerful pluck of the
man would have done credit to the hero
of a dozen battle-fielda.
One morning he announced that he
should no longer confine hla porambula
tions to tbe back street, now that he could
ride bo well j he would venture up Broad.
way. As he had the very day but one
before demolished a new buainesa suit, I
may be pardoned for not feeling much
confidenoe in hia ability to make a crodU
table appearanoe. He woro on thia ocoa
eion a new aummor auit of navy blue ilan
nel, which was very becoming to him,
and I felt an excuaable reluctance to hav
ing it reduced to paperraga bo soon. He
atarted out flnely and rode several blooks,
when he saw Mr. Jlarsdon approaching,
and aa he attempted to turn out for him,
he waa thrown vlolently forward and
lauded in a sitting posture on tho hard
concreto pavemont, with his feot atraight
out before him and his heols elevated,
whilo his hands wero extended aa if try.

" N-no, n'not much," roplied tho fallen
hero with a Bickly emile. " I seo starry
visions, and might fancy that I had been
projectod into tho flrmament, were it not
that I feol solid earth boneath me ; the
milky way cannot bo made of concrote,
can it V"
"Not that I am aware of I" replied
Mr. Maradon, aa he rescued tho bicycle
from the gutter and led it to Ariatarchus,
" Can I aasiat you to mount ?"
"Not yet, my friend; aa I r6marked
before, I feel the earth but too plainly
beneath me and my blouae is short.
Would you have tho kinduess to step in
aomewhere and borrow an overcoat to
cover my retreat ?"
Mr. Marsdon went off in a roar of
laughter, but soon returned, and throw
ing an overcoat over the shouldera of hia
unfortuuate friend, assisted him to riae.
Aristarchus led tho bicycle home, and
when he came in and took off that over
coat and started to go up stairs, T didn't
aay one word. I couldn't. I laughed and
I laughed, and I continued to laugh. I
laugh now when I think of it.
For some weeks after this oxploit Aris
tarchus patronized the back street until
he regained hia confidence, and on ono
fatal morning again started up Broadway.
He did not notice that I hurried on my
wraps and followed him. I was not very
anxious to seo him ride, but if ho was to
be thrown off and his clothes demolished,
I ineant to see how it waa done. And I
saw. He went finely for quite a long dis
tance, and I waa beginning to think I had
better not prolong my rather long walk,
when I saw our minister's wife coming.
She waa tripping lightly along, followed
by her big Newfoundland doe. and carrv-
ing in her hands a chromo ready for fram
ing. As Ariatarchus neared her, he lif ted
his hat gracefully ; but in bowing to her
he failed to notice a large stone that lay
before him, and the bicycle crashed against
it, sending Ariatarchus head first toward
Mrs. Carter. As she saw him coming she
instinctively held out the picture to
ahield heraelf, but his head went plump
through it, like a circus acrobat going
throueh a paper-covered hoop, and hit
Mrs. Carter with such force as to knock
her over. She fell on her dog, who
growled and barked while bis mistreas
screamed, and a couple of street boys
yellod " stop thief." The dog extricated
himself; and ruahing at Aristarchus
grabbed him by the pants, and by the
time i reacned tlie apot, Aristarchus, witn
the chromo standing out about hia neck
like a very eathetic and new-fangled yoke,
waa dancing wildly about in vain endeav-
ors to free himself from the teeth of that
dog. People were ruahing to the spot to
see what was going on, and there was no
lack of assistance, so Mrs. Carter was
soon on her feet again, and the dog was
quieted, and Aristarchus ceased to bo the
central licmre o the chromo, and the iu
dicioua arrancement of a few pina where
the dog'a teeth had been at work soon put
nim in a condition to start lor home. it
only remained for him to pick up the
pieces ot tne bicycle. 1 sugrreated bor-
rowing a basket tb take them home in,
but he gave me such a look that I did not
dare to repeat the suggestion. That night
Aristarchus told Leander that he had de
cided not to ride any more, but would
turn the bicycle over to him at once.
Leander gave one war-hoop, three cheers,
and tnrned two somersaults in token of
his delight, and then rushed out to view
nis property. When ho came back he
gave avicious pull at Mlranda Dorothea's
ilaxen curls. trod on hia father'a toes, and
sat down with one leg of hia chair on the
cai a tau. That was all be said.
The next day was Sunday, and it so
happened that Aristarchus had agreed to
supply the pulpit. I wondered what he
would wear. Shortly after breakfaat ho
asuea meekiy :
" Cordelia, could you find me a pair of
pants to wear v
" Certainly," I replied cheerfully, and
going to my room with malicious satis
faction, I dragged from the closet every
pair he had worn sinqe he had bought
tne bicycle. 1 spread out a row ot them
on the bed ; I spread a pairon every chair
in the room. Tbero were pants of "divera
colors and divera materiala ; some were
patcnea, some were darned, and some
were atill undarned. Then I called Aris
tarchus to survey the ruins. As he stood
in tho midst of them I murmured sof tly
" Pants to tlie rlglit ot blm
Pants to tbe lett of hlra,
Pants to the front ot him,
Torn, rent, and sundered!
Who can thelr story tell?
Iloldly they rode and well!
No two wero served allke,
Yet all on a bit; etrlke

" Six hundred fiddlesticka I" growled
"No; pants 1" I gasped and proceedod
" When can thelr glory fade?
0 the wlld chargo they made!
All tbe world wondered,
Sad was tbe havoc made!
Pity tbe pants brlgade,
Itagged slx bundredl"
But Ariatarchus heard not ; he waa try
ing to choose the less dlsreputable pair
" I think, Cordelia," he aaid at last, " I
will try thia pairof doeskin, they will look
the beat with my broadcloth coat and it
will hide the patches."
" Doeakin is verv treacheroua material."
I suggested, " aud tboae were alwaya a
" I think I may truat them for one OC'
caaion,- ne replied. And he did.
AU went well until Ariatarchus aat
down at the olose of the sermon, when I
obaerved him grow suddenly pale, and at
that moment from the lowest depths of
my inner consciouanesa was evolved in
the fainteat whispor tho fatal word, "doe
skin I" As soon aa posaible after the aer
vice cloaed, I made my way to the veatrv,
There sat Aristarchus with prespiration

I could and did. When Leander learned
why hia father came home in a oar
riage ho muttered aavagely

General J. L. Cbamberlain of Maine
the ollicer who waa designated by Genoral
Grant to receive the aurrender of General
L)o'a army, recently deaoribed the eceno
in a lecture in Memorial hall, Bowdoin
oollego. The Brunswick Ttlegraph fur
niahos a brief report of his addresa as fol
lowa: On tho ovoning before tho groat qnos
tlon was to be triod we propared to broak
carap boforo the dawn. Tho enomy waa

poasossion, tho fall of thelr capital inovit

only. Tho skirmlshlng all day and tho
marcbing all night, and thon, on the last
three days, the racing nnd pursult groatly
wearlod our men. The only hopo of tho
onemy wa8 to push weatorly by a path
way that led them along the south of the
Appomattox river. Tbat nathwav was
travorsod by many streatns, and, aa they
rushed along, it was only to find at every
crossing aomo hot vanguard. It waa the
last night of tho pursuit. Sheridan, who
waa juat a little way ahead, had sent back
word that ho was close upon the onemy,
and llkely to Btriko him at any moment,
and asked us to make about eighty miles
more than tho hard day's march, that wo
might keep up with his cavalry. It waa
blakeat midnight when, with flushed faces
and aching limbs, wo reached the goal.
Down wo lay there in our blankets, sup
perless, fevered by the beat of the march,
then chilled by tho dewa of the Virginia
spring. Scarcoly had the first broken
dream begun, when a mounted oflicer
splaahed down the road, bearing in hi8
nand a note from Sheridan : " If you can
posalbly push out vour infantry to-night,
we will bave great results in the morn
Almoat before the linirerinrr echoea of
tho " Halt I" have dled away, the tired
brain of the dreamer hears tho buglo note.
Tho horaes wero hurried up. Tho men
form in ahort ranks. In threo hours we
reach Appomattox station. Already we
can hear the sharp ring of the hoarse ar-
tuiery, drowned by the snriy roar oi tne
Uoniederate euns. There is no mistake.
Sheridan is equare across the Confederate
retreat, and with that glorious cavalry
alone. in wbich our Jbirst iuaino was in
the front, he waa holding at bay all that
was lelt of tho proudest army ot tbe con
federacy. Suddenly an oflicer from Snor
idan appears, and delivers this message :
" Sir, General Sheridan wishea you to
draw off two columns and come to hia
support. Tbe confederate infantry ia
preasing him hard, and likely to drive
bim lrom the tield." fcmch chanced to be
my own order.
Breakincr from tbe woods, we soon
catch aicht of Sheridan'a banner. Be
neath it aat fhat calm yot headlong man
on the fiery ateed that had turned the
battle of the Shenandoah. In full view
of U8 our cavalry wa8 gallantly stemming
the lire of tbe btonowall dackaon corpa.
We wheel into line of battle. Every arm
of the service was in full play. On one
side the line rolled back : on the other,

while tbe other corps of infantry were
coming up and forming a sort oi semb
cucle. Coming up oh the confederate
rear are the Second, Sixth and Ninth
corps of our army, and unless they can
break through us witnin a halt hour, all
is lost by them. Tbe confederate bat
teries are drawn off from the crest, and
they take their ground near the court
house of tbe little hamlet called Appo
mattox. We press forward on the south
side. The die is east. Wo hear the
rattle of our light artillery coming up be-
closmg on tbo toe. We dash on over
swamp and stream. AU is excitement.
boon two horaemen come galloping out
trom tbe confederate line, one of them
waving a flag of truce.
Tbe aid makes his craceful aalutation
and deuvera his measace : " (ienorai ing
street deaires a ceaaation of hostilitiea un
til he can hear from General Lee as to
propoaal of aurrender." Meanwhile, of
courae, we atill advance. We have no
orders to halt, but the firing alackena on
both sidea. In a moment comes the order
to cease firing aud to halt. A truce is
agreed upon till four o'clock in the after-
noon. Four o'clock comes. No word
from Lee and Grant is heard ; so, what
have we to do after this but to resume
hostilities V The order came: "Prepare
to make or receive an attacic m ten min
utes." Wo pushed forward our skirmish
linea ; but Lee and Graut had come. The
final answer is not long coming now.
What a word for us ! Tho sky must have
been bronze that it was not rent asunder
by tho uproar of shouting and cheering
that continued late into tbe night.
We were in camp all tbe next day,
while Generala Grant and Lee were ar
ranging the details of tbe surrender. But
on the next night, about midnight, I was
ordered to have my command out at five
o'clock the next morning to receive the
colors of the confederate army of north
ern Virginia. It was chilly that morning,
but you may safely cuess we were on
time. Wo formed in line of battle,
stretching along tbe south street of the
town, trom tbe bank of the stream to tne
court house three-quartera ot a mile in
extent facing north. We were not
ashamed to face that way now. Old

In that surrender General Grant showed
a magnanimity that we were disposed to
criticise. Ho insiated, however, that
while private property should be re
apected wherever it might be, all tbat
belongedto tbe seceasion tbe confeder
ate army, officers aud men must march
out in due coremony and lay their arma
and coiora ln tne presonce ot aomo por
tion of our troops. Aa we stand there in
the morning miat, we boo the confederate
army breaking camp, and then Blowly
and reluotantly forming ranks for the
last time. And now they move tho
great masa breaking into a column of
march ; General Gordon, with the Stone-
wall Jackaon corps, then Longatreot'i
corps, then Hill'a corps, commanded by
Heatli. On they came, the confederate
battlo-flaga with the diagonal crosa and
tne tmrteon stara. Tbe head of tbo con
federate column comes opposite our right,
aud at a bugle aignal wo.come to the "oar
ry arm8." The confederate commander,
General bordon, at tho head of the col
umn, obaerves thia little courteay, and
drops tho point of bis sword and gives
the command to " carry." Not a Bonnd
from the trumpet, nor roll of druui, but
in stillnoss, aa if, indeod, the dead waa
passing there thus they moved. Thon
they atacked arma and took off thelr cart-ridge-boxoa
and lald them on tho pilo.
Liatly, paitifully, thay furlod their battlo
flags and laid them in tho dust ; somo
kneeling down over them and kissing
them with burning tcars. And then tho
" Star Spanglod Banner" waved alone
upon the field. Thus, all day long, di
vision after division comes, gooa through
thoceromony, and paaaos on. Having
been atrippod of citizenahip, and given
thelr honor never to raiso arma
acain, they can go where they will.
Meantime, all day, uo taunt, no cheer,
uor whisper of vainglory oscapes a singlo
man of oura. Thero waa somothing liko
a half-fraternal feeling toward those men.
We woro fellow-aoldiera at last. Tho tre
mendous battles were wrought by ua to
gether. Whoever had mado the war, we
naa enuea it.
On the morrow, along the hill-aido, what
a contraat indeed I Singly, or in groupa,
on foot, on borao, are those 'men making
their way, every one for his far-away
home, and we are left alone and lonesomo.
When wo took up our weary march home
ward, it was dull to plod on without skir
mishers ahead. It was tamo, too, that
where the road endod no pickets wero
Elaced, and our peace not to be diaturbed
y the leadenod songsters. It seemed a
waste of opportunity that upon tho march,
when we entered a valley, no battery
belched upon us from the hoighta beyond.
uut all ia over now, and fast vaniahing
with the years. 1 seo a new generation
atanding beforo me and around. But
though sometimes the heart will yearn
for those stirring duties and those high
companionahipa of the field, etill, when I
think of all tbe noble apirita tbat bave
passed in battle and the storm, and how
these little Virginia rivers are flowing on
to-night ust as they did whilo yet those
earnest young eyea were wont to gazo
across tbe aileut watsrs; of how many
hearta aro still to-night that then beat
stronger than their tide, I thnnk God and
heaven that no bugle on to-morrow's dawn
sball wake ua to reveille. Let us not for
get, dear friends, the last martyr; the
last ? I should not Bay bo : for are they
not dying day by day,and hour by hour, the
beroes who fought the warto the glorious
end ? But the great martyr, who, in the
supreme moment of his victory, " with
malice toward none, witb charity for all,"
following the right as God gave bim to
seo the right, went to join his 300,000
that army of the unsurrendered, uudis
charged, who still forever keep watch
and cuard about them. I see them,
marshaled in that pale yet glorious array
on the battlement beights that forever
shall keep this nation as one, and tbat
commanding form, that homely, true
face, I see among them, and hear at times
a sentiment which moves about from
place to place, and whispers throueh the
world of space in tho deep nicht, that
" all is well."
Latitndc, but Not Longitudc.
Much latitude has been acquired in the
last few veara in ladies bathing coa-
tumes. Youne cirls whosedelicacy would
be visibly affrouted at any open alluaion
to ankies or legs, display botn witn tno
utmost compoaure on the crowded beach,
in their bathinc dressea. Arms bare to
tne shoulder are no uncommon Bpectacie.
A foreign actresa appears at Long Brancb
in a ticht-fittine iersey of dark blue fian-
ael, partially low in tho neck and dovoid
of aleeves. Tights of the same material
meet at the knee with cardinal-colored
hose. Au eccentric conical-shaped straw
hat fastened over the ears completes the
costume, which seems more adapted to
the trapeze than to any other position in
life. In default of the trapeze, however,
the wearer of this light and airy dress
pirouettes about in the sand, now extend
ing heraelf at full length on her back and
pillowing hor head on her bare, uuprotect
ed arma, and again, frog-like, drawing her
lega beneath her and burying heraelf in
the aand under the shelter of a red pluah
paraaol. Won at loat, however, by ivep
tune's advances, she flinga asido the red
plush paraaol and plungea madly into the
retreating blue wavea, and all that ia visi-
ble for the enauing moment is a glimpse
of a red leg and tho bobbing up and down
of a conical straw hat. In past daya,
when life was less complicated and when
ladies who bathed, conscioua of tbeir un-
becoming and unsightly costumes, rushed
rapidly into the aea, trusting to defy re-
cognition by their superhuman alertnesa,
and when tbe bath waa at an end sought
the shelter of their bathing houae with
equal apeed, tbe preaent ayatem of bold'
ing a levee on the aand in such circum
8tances was nuite unknown. Now both
sexes men reduced to tbe simpie garb oi
an acrobat, bare armed and bare legged
form a circle round the Naiads who come
drippine from the aea. and all. inapired
by the simplicity of their condition, join
in retresbingconveraation andcbildiah oy
play. At Newport, Narragansett Fier,
and some other ultra-fashionable resorts,
policemen are stationed aloncr tbe beaches
to prevent men from bathinc in costumes
which easily shock even the matrons that
trequent these places. irom what wo
hear, it would be a move in the interest of
good morals if the pohce would occasion
ally send some of the female batbers back
to get on a little more drapory. I he Hour,
Tho Koy to Carlyle's Genius.
In the lately published Emerson and
Carlylo correapondence, there ia a passage
from Emerson's note-book, upon Carlylo,
tbat may well serve to start ua upon our
courso in this easay. " ile naa, says i.m
eraon, " manly superiority rather tnan in
tellectuality ; " " thero is more character
than intellect in everv sentence." Thia
fact, with the consequent steop inolina'
tion of all Carlyle'a faoultiea toward per
sonality or peraonal proweaa, afforda the
master-key to him, to his life, his works,
his opiniona, and ia a brief aummary of
much that I havo written upon him. He
waa a man of vehemont and overweening
conceit in man. A sort of anthropolog:
cal greed and hunger posseesed him, an
insatlablo oraviug for strong, picturesque
characters, and for coutaot and conflict
with them. Thia waa hia rulincr passion
(and it amounted to a passion) all hia
days. Ho fed his soul on heroea and he
roio qualities, and all hia literary exploits
were a soarch for these things. Where
ho found them not, where he did not come
nnon some trace of them in booka, in so
cfety, in politios, he saw only barreuuess
aud futility. He waa an idealist who waa
inhospitable to ideaa; ho must have
man, the flavor aud stimulua of ampli
