served through tlie Mexican war nilh
credit, and in the hit-.- war. lie was cltair
m.n of the District committee, a place
which will probably go to Mr, Ilhickburn,
of Kentucky. At a time when the District
debt is nearly half what the irovernmcnt
ilrht was in 101, and the liability of the
Cnited States for a In rife portion ot it, :ui.l
for necessary future expenses is not settled,
the position is one ol fjreat importance.

To-morrow the glad bells will ring
out again the j yous anthem which for
over cightc:i hundred years has made, the
h'-art ota world throb fa.-ti r, in the "good
ti-iins of great joy," h savior's birth. And
we s nd to you a L'liristnias greeting the
.sublime praisy of tut! angel band wliicli has
echoed in strains of ccstacy adown the
centuries: 'Glory to God in the highest
and on earth peace, good will toward
m.-n." To-night beautifully tender
memories crowd upon me thick
and fast and tht far away summer
time seems onlv as a sweet refrain from
some half-forgotten harmony, which ever
and anon stirs my lite into new bursts ot
song. And, indeed, well might th-) past
year s-.-ein as a fairy romance for the very
air quivered with melody under the music,
which for ag-s has thrilled the care-worn
heart of a sorrow-stricken worid, the music
of love. Under the subtle influence of the
southern atmosphere we almost fancied oiir-
j wives in the ancient Egyptian city on th-
s.m'.it banks of the great d'', tor all nature
kissed by the lot lite of h-r sun lover, seem
ed to lie in a languid calm of sleep and the
trees unstirred by wind or breeze towered as
motionless mountains of grucii leaves shim-
m -rin,,' in light of sunset gold and crimson.
We, too, shared the strange sp--!l pervading
tin- climtit J and with folded hands and half
closed eyes drifted through the blight,
tranquil weather, forgetting the work, the
can-, tin: responsibility of life. Ik-veiling
in the intoxication of love, the ten lerncss
of friendahip, the delight of intellectual
pursuit, how eagerly I drank in the sun
shine and t!ie wine of lit'.'. How 1 lay en
tranced in my visions of the beautiful fu
ture, which stretched out in such limitless
imssibilitics before me. How the thoughts
of my soul tinted in roseate huts the very
air 1 bp-athed until all nature s-ein.-d one
sheen of gohl-n light. Cairo', bow tin
very words quicken my Mood as I remem
ber the many kindly faces that smiled on
Us in tin courtesy and hospitality which
only sprinu' from noble hearts. Do you
know that the women of Cairo seem pe
culiarly b'-autiful to me, for I see them
through lover's eyes?
Tin- necessity pointed with index linger
to imother city in a border state, and pilgrim-like,
we followed. Eut our sojourfi
intf in the quaint Indian village christened
l'adueah, was even more hrief than in
Cairo, for while the natural loveliness of the
citv. with its smooth avenues of gol 1, over
arched by hilling emerald-jeweled trees,
its spacious lawns and elegant mansions, its
j rivers, blue and calm, flashing in waves of
' rippling hcauty, delighted my whole soul
! with their aesthetic luxuriance; yet neither
! the loyal hearts of Cairo, nor the exquisite
I scenery of l'aducah could till the heart
1 longing for mother love, and to me the far
I distant city of Omaha appeared a parodist"
an Ed'-n to which my weary heart
was ever turning, and nt lust, in the
wailing of tie- August days, I bade a
farewell to the sunny south, which although
rapturous in ccstacy, I'd- to me it in. 'ant
home! neither ! yet was tinged and under
laid with sail regret. Standing upon the
deck of the Fisk I watched with tearful
eves the receding spires of the vanishing
city until the last dim outline was lost
against the blue sky.
My whole journey upon the Fisk was
rendered unusually pleasant by the alfu
bility of the gonial captain Mr. Harry
Taylor, whose care and atteuiion I appre
ciate deeply. For not only were all the
appointnc-nts of the steamer such as to
render sure the comfort of the passengers,
but there was that, indefinable something
pervading nil the arrangements which
made you feel as though everything was
done for your especial beiielit. The few
hours I spent upon the hoat have marked
that day one (if the plesaul care-fiee days
when even to live is ft delight.
Arriving in your city on Saturday even
ing I could not but spend one more Sabbath
in the churches, which had always socordi
,illy welcomed ine before .
The s-rviees seemed almost oppressive in
their solemnity, for I felt us one feels when
listening to Hi" last words of the funeral
beu-'diction over the grave of a dead friend.
In my eagi-r impatience the hours ol Mon
friends, I found myself and baggage safely
aboard the Illinois Central, northward and
homeward hound. Of this road niul its
intinnjjemcnt I cannot but express my high
est admiration. For speed, comfort
and safety it stands unrivalled, while I can
say that without exception its conductor
are tho most perfect gentlemen I etvr met
upon any Toad. Itetwrvn Cairo and Chiea-
'o tho long tiresome hour seemed but as
moments becaus:: of the courteous polite-
ncss ot these otlh ials. Little does the road
know what it gains by the action of such
employes and especially to lad'u s traveling
alone, ignorant of the details and feeling
keenly the annoyances incident to travel, W
such attention peculiarly welcome and
Of my ileasant visit in Chicago and fur
th.r journey, my lessening space forbids
mention. I can onlv wonder if the glory
of heaven can seem brighter to me, than
didthujijjht gleamings through the dark

sad thoughts surge from my heart upon this
cold white paper underneath my pen am!
almost unconsciously I trace the words over
which I bend in paiu.
Iii my cool northern home, although f..r
away from the terrible scourge, yet know
ing I had left in the mn.st ot danger one
whose love is my very life and whose death
would change my heart's heaven of hap
piness into a desolate waste of black ashes,
over which I think the pall of darkest night
would forever rest. Was it strange
I dared not even lift a paper lest
in? eves should fall upon the dreaded t :d-
ings of woe! Iut the shock came. I can
only remember that some one read aloud
Caiiio, Illinois. Mr. Thomas Nally, editor
of the Daily EfLLKTiN died this morning
of yellow fever." In an instant my heart
stood still with horror, then I gasped i. r
breath. The air was hot and dry. I was
suffocating. I could only cry Mr. Nally
--d'jaiW Ah! I never knew before what
yellow fever meant. Now it had touched
me and taken from me one whom I called
by the sacred name of friend, and whose
last light words of happy parting en
that fair summer morning seem to me now
a tlie solemn echo of a dirge. Little did
either. think that the parting
would be forever and until the gates
of th- eternal swing back f-r
my entrance. our irienusuip can
only be as a bright dreuiu of
the past whose reality vanished with the
cold cruel words ot that fateful telegram.
Oh! my friend, little did 1 think how near
the throne you were. How even then yuu
were standing in the shadow of heaven's
threshold, aye in the very portals of the NV.v
Jerusalem, and that warm hand clasp would
be the very last touch of your lingers. I
should ever know, and to-night I can on'y
whisper the beautiful words in a very hu-ii
