A TRUE STOUY.
In the evening of the day Alice arriv
ed at S , a great experience meeting
wns to be held in one of the churches.
Her friend who had beccme enthusiastic
in the cue, nrped her to go to thismeet
iug, which Alice did, nhhough with a
feeling of reluctance. The house was
crowded above aiW below. The prelimi
naries usually upperlainingto such meet
ings having beeer;rangeri, n brief open
ing address was made by one of the min
isters. A reformed man then related his
e,perietice with gr -at effect. After he
had lini.died, there was a pause of nearly
a minute. Al'length a man who had been
se ited far back, with his face partly turn
ed from thfi audience, arose slowly and
moved to the front of the stage.
A half suppressed exclamation escaped
Alio1, as her eye caught the well known
features of him lmhad been her husband,
whihs a quick thrill ran through her.
Then her frame trembled in accord with
her fluttering heart. 1 he face of Mr. l)e
hincy had greatly changed since siie had
last looked upon it. Its calm, dignified
elevation had been restored, but w ith u hat
difieienec! What before wus cheerful,
was sad, very sad.
"Mr. President," he lx ran in a broken
voice, 'although I hail consented, i.l your
urgent solicitation, to address this lare
a.vi'inLilv to-liinhl. vet I hae felt so stroiii?
a n lnclance to doing so, that it has been
with ihe utmost ilifiioiilty I could drag my
self forward. But 1 had passed my word;
I could not violate it. As lo relating my
experience, th.d I do not think I can ven
ture upon. The past 1 dine nut recall.
Would to heat en thai just ten years of my
life were blotted out."
The speaker paused a moment, already
milch affected. Then resuming in a firm
er voice he said :
' JJut something inust be said .if my ow n
ease, or I shall fail to make that impres
sion iijuii jaar minds that I wish to pro

Sii.ie nay, more than that he represen
ted his county for three jears in Ihe As
sembly of the Commonwealth. And more
than that still occupied a seat in Congress
for two Congressional periods."
At this announcement the stillness of
death peryaded the crowded assembly.
"And yet more than all that," he con
tinued, 1. is voce sinking into a low thrill
ing lone "he once had a tenderly loved
wile and two sweet children. But all
these honors all these blessings have de
parted from him," he continued, his voice
growing louder and deeper in his efforts
to control himself. "He was unworthy
lo retain them! His constituents drew
I. im off, because he had debused himself
and disgraced li em. And worse than all
she who had loved him devotedly she
who had borne him I w o dear babes, was
forced to abandon him and seek an asylum
in herJalher'a house. And why ? Could
I have become so changed in a few short
years ? What power was there to abuse
me that my fellow beings spurned, and e-

more freely, and was rarely, if ever, from
under the bewildering effects of partial
intoxication. I remained in the same vil
lage for some years', but never once saw
her during that time nor a . glimpse of
my children. At last I became so aban
doned in my lite, that my wife, urged on
by her friends, doubtless, filed an applica
tion for a divorce, and as cause could ea
sily be shown w hy it should be granted,
a separation was legally declared.
"To complete my disgrace, at the next
CongressioiAil ca:;vss, I was left off the
ticket, as unfit to represent the district.- 1

he stood silent, with bowed and trembling
limbs. The den-e ma.s ol people w ere I
hushed into an oppressive stillness, that
w as broken here and there by half Milled :
At this moment there was n movement
in the crow d. A single female figure, be- j
fore whom every one appeared instinct- J
ively to give why. was seen passing up the :
aisle. This was not observed by Deb.n-1
cv, until she had come nearly in front of
the j.lallorm on which he stood. Then ,
the movement caught his ear, and lifting
his eyes they instantly fell on Alice for
it whs she that wus passing onward-he
bent forward towards her with suddenly
nplified hands and eager eyes, and stood
like a statue until le had -.-.io..d iI.h stand
and advanced quietly to his cide. For a
moment the two stood thus, the whole au
dience, llir-illed w ith the scene, w ere upon
their feet. Then Dclancy opened his arms,
and Alice threw herself upon Lis bosom
with a quick, wild gesture.
Thus for the spat e of a minute they
stoodevery one fully, by a singular in
tuition, understanding the scene. One of
the ministers then came forward, and gt n
lly separated them.
"No, no," said Delancy, " oil miit not,
you cannot take her away from me.'
"Heaven forbid that I should do that !
replied the minister. "By your own con
fession she is not your wife."
"No, she is nut," returned Dclancy,
"But she is ready to renew her vows
again," Alice said smiling through her
tears that now rained over her face.
Before that large assembly, all standing
and with few dry eyes, was suid in a bro
ken v nice, the marriage ceremony that gav e
Dehu.ey und Alice to each other. As the
minister, uu aged man, with thin while
locks, finished the rile, he laid his hands
upon the heads of the two he had joined

some steps in the nature of intervention.
From the Traveller we have the follow

of the proscription of the iniiluttoes by the
black President, who, when waited upon!
for the restoration of the constitution, or
dered his guards to fire upon the tlepule

Many of the merchants took refuge on
board the French man of war in the har
bor. The French consul proceeded to the
pakce nd demanded that an. armistice
should take place. This was (granted,
with the exception of about twenty-Jive of
the principal merchants, who had nut si nee

first stated as high as one thousand. It i
probsble that not more than one hundred

at first classed as dead. This sot caused

The President had marched tguinst them,
and had got as far as Mnriegalante, where

habitants barred his progress. -1 his is the

That women love to hear, .
Those gentle flatteries that full
So sweet on every ear ;

Too fair for grief to shade j
My check, he seys, vvaa never meant
In sorrow's gloom to lade.
He stands beside me when I sing
The songs of other daj s,
And whispers in love's thrilling tones
The words of heartfelt praise ;
And often in my cjes he looks,
Some answering lo see,
In vain be there can only read
The faith of memory.
He little knows what thoughts aw ake,
With every gonlle word:
How, by his looks and tones, the founts
Of tenderness are stirred,
The visions of my youth return,
Joys far loo bright to last,
And while he speaks of future blis,

Like lamps in eastern sepulchres,
Amid my hearts deep gloom,
Affection sheds its holiest light
Upon iny husband's tomb. '

To upper air grow dim,

The Senate resumed the consideration of

ensued, on an amendment granting an al
lowance of 53 per head to the Chero
kee Indinns reniiiininir in the State of
North Carolina in which Messrs. . Hell,
Atherton, Badger, Crittenden, and others
participated. Without action, the funhr

The consideration of the Oregon Ter
ritorial Bill was then resumed. .After
some discussion, Mr, Hale withdrew his
amendment, in order to allow a direct vote
to. be taken on Mr, Webster's ubiiule
to the Senate bill of last session, in which
Ihe rights of all to remove thither1 with
their property, of every description is re
considered.' He was disposed, lie tuid.to
"lake out his lire-brand," and see f they
could get along l.ltle better w iihout it.
Mr. Bright expressed his willingness
to strike out the 12ih section of the bill as
reported, which secures to the inhabitants
of, Oregon all the. rights, privileges ami
miiduniue beretofote trrairted and secur
cd lu the Territory cf Iowa, and Us iu
habitants; and provides that the existing
laws now enforced in Oregon under the
authority of the provisional government,
established by the people thereof,, shall
continue to be valid and operative therein,
so far as the same shall not be incompati
ble vv ith the provisions of this act. This
it had been contended, was really at: ex
tension to the territory, of the provisions
of the ordinance of 1 S7, as the people of
Oregon have already passed laws prohib
iting slavery in that territory forever. -
Mr. Halo objected (o the striking out
of this section, as he had only withdrawn
his "fire-brand" to allow action' on the
Southern "lire-brand" of the Senator from
Florida. But if there was lo be any oth
er "doctoring," he should deem it his duty
again to move it. ' ,
Mr. Calhoun said it must be apparent fo
all, that the mere striking out of the 12tli
section would remove the diflicully, as the
laws of Oregon would still remain in force.

Messrs. Miller, Dickinson, Calhoun, Bag- ''
by, Foote and Halo. Between'- the two
hitler Senators it became finite pointed, a
to the propriety observed by each in the
performance of their Senatorial duties.
Mr. Foote thought that the demeanor of
the Senator from New Hampshire towards
other Senators, in the discussions here on ,
ihe question of slavery, had been anything
but respectful, decorous and Senatorial. .
Mr. Hale replied that his thanks were
due to the Senator for his reproofs, for he
w as not too old nor too vv iil'ul to learn
manners even of the Senator from Mis-:'
sissippi. But werfe it possible, in the
language of Bums, (which' he, tjuoted.)!
for ns to "see ourselves as others see us, .
he would not be likely to receive advice
