'Il was a plan of Nod Lee's -getting

"Not, I, indeed! I've heard say that if

It was a reiy iplcasent apartmeiit, lid
thought, not 8'j elegantly furtiiBhed as
those lie had been accustomed to, but
comfortable and homelike. There was a
neat home-made carpet on the flpor,,white
muslin curtains looped bark from the
window with knots of. blue ribbon, and
s tablo under the looking class was, cuVir-
j-ed With books, magHzires, and a vase of
hagrant rosea. Drawing a large rocking
chair up to the window, he sat down and
(entered in conversation with his bost-ss.

Cornelia binerbon bowed with the most

beautiful smile just parted her red lips,
revealing the tip of her milk whito teeth.

'No mother, I'd railier not:" and erect
and stately as a young oak, Cornelia went
out. . .
L'ngdon did not fee her again that

in the parlor arid discussed farming mat

Cornelia's mtludious voice.

grey, Might and large and gloriously

your humble servant not worth her a.ten-
lion. Which is pleasant refleotion indeed.
I have learned from her parents ( who
think that she test a'ndimift-et girl ever

ever creatoif,') that she cannot paint, or

The moon is riding high and dry in -the

to dream of teautiful Cornelia. Good
Now there was nothing very rcprelien
eible in all this, tiut Ltngdon wculd rath
er any one else than Cornelia should road
it. And that Was 'just what she did.
When it was finished he laid it oh (he
window, and tbe wind whisked it out into
the door-yard, and there Cornelia found
it when she went to gather flowers for the
breakfast table, bheieadlt, ss she had
undoubted right to do, Without knowing
wbo iit was writk-a . liv or about until
'b1i s4w her own name. , Then she lore it

out of regard for Cornelia, tor she appear
ed to regard him with jerf0tindiflVr&t)oe.
Langdon waa not naturally vain, but he
folt almost affronted by her coldness, es
pecially as every glance or. smile bound
him still tauter in Loves rosy chain.
At the end of two months he received
a letter from the city requesting him to re
turn immediately. The bu6ines was ur
gent, so he packed his trunk snd piepared
to go without delay. But first there win
a jitile business ot hit own to be attended
to. For that purpose he went out into
the dogr yard,, where Cornelia sat under a
locust tree aewing.. With an abruptness
which the cti'cuinstiiuoea demanded, be
asked her to marry bim a little (lustra

"Forgetiing myself! well. I mav in such

"I say ko, then. Yon would look pret

into the house, leaving her lover nuite
disconsolate over Lis first, and he mental
ly vowed iis last rejection. -

Into tbe country, answered Rjlert. as
carelessly as if there waa no 'particular
portion of the country he wished to' visit.
"What part of iheeouotry? '
"Oh, then Hugh Vernon told me about
it,"- , .:;:..!.
'He told nie nothing, only that a cer

out very wen indeed, icou didn t hap-

"Yes 1 did,' gaid Langdon frankly. 'I

do you guess ahe said when I asked her
to many me? ' .
"Yes of courso; what could she say?"
f'She said no; and I really felt abashed

Langdon did; not tecanee she had given
il but ha had had it in bis mind to do no
since he fitst came hoh'.o, long before,
in faot. Three years in a .'oreign land had
not effaced Cornelia's image from his
memory ; and, though there wa not much
ground for hope, cow that she had grown
so brilliant and accomplished, he repeated
the old addage, "a taint heart never won a
fair lady," and went to Mowbridge.
It was nearly dusk when he .reached
Mr. Emerson's, and, just as he opened the
little gate, Cornelia came down the path
with a cedar milk-pail on ber arm, bound
for the baru-yaid. She hod not changed
in her habits then, nor in her appearauoe
either. Her eyes were as biigln and beau
tiful, her hair as elossy and abundant,
her dress as neat, and time had neither
added nor detracted , irotn. the natural
grace and elegance of her manners. She
bowed when end saw bun, and held out
her hand. .
"This is unexpected pleasure, sir. Miss

Now, the Republican party do not want,
to interfere with the rights -A the South,
at all. It is a direct slander to sat that
we of the North bae any intention to in
terfere with ihe rights of the slaveholder.
But tho Republican party want those vii
gin fields of the territory ot Kansas those
luxuriant forests the common property
of the people of ihe commonwealth to be
the homes of freemen, where every son of
toil may earn his bread by the sweat ot
his brow without competing with the Af
