"Oh, it's the milliner's apprentice,

- "Just step into the hall, and wait a
minute. Miss Madison's own maid

There was a circular hall, with a
railed gallery, extending around the
second story, and a dome of white
and amber glass overhead, and a
g reat bronze statue of some fabled
"' warrior kept gaard on horseback in
d the middle of the marble floor.
d There was a deep fireplace, lined
with china tiles, where a fire of
oconted logs blazed on tall fire-dogs
of polished brass; deep, plush easy
chairs were drawn up beside It, and
a pair of monster Japan vases
which reached up to Rachel's

")e sun do move. Yes, sah, it do
inndedee, an' don y ou forgit it." I
think the sun moves myself, or if it
has not, that it will move shortly. I1
shoul not be at all surprised to"
see the earth fly off at a tangent
any moment, for there is certainly
something extraordinary going on
which is shaking all the old preju
dices and conceits out of us, that
have had their roots in our genera
tions more than three thousand
years. We are preparing for a
grand labor celebration on Septem
ber 1st. It is muscle and bran
against money bags. Archimedes
said if he had a place to rest his
lever, he could move 'he world, but
labor is Loth the tulerun and the
lever that are moving the world to
day. The other night the Labor
Unions had a meeting to arrange
for the coining parade, and a mo
tion was made that the colored
unions be invited to part:cipate,
and it was carried almost without a
dissenting voice. It only seems
like yesterd ty since this s:ime fac
tor in our national politic. was only
a nigger; but this act of our labor
union does what all the amnend
ments you could pile upon the con
stitution in a year would not do, it
raises him to the dignity of a man.
It is labor's great proclamation
that if the black man has the ener
gy and the ability to elevate him
self, they will not try to keep him
down. The colored mechanics and
laboring men have accepted the in
vitation, and the presumption . is
that instead of being put at the tail
of the procession, they will be ac
corded the post of honor. The bit
ter prejudice of caste and race has
been nowhere stronger than among
our laboring men ; and as to our
mechanics, no shop would think of
taking as an apprentice, a colored
boy. The only avenues to advance
ment, were as waiters, barbers or
porters; no mechanical pursuit was
open to them; and, in fact, it has
been no easy matter to get a white
boy in any of the trades, so strict
has been the rule of our labor
unions; but the resolution.of -last
week breaks down a formidable bar
rier against the colored race, and if
they don't get on in New York after
this, it will be their own fault.
There is unusual bustle in the
churches and theatres, the greater
part of them having been closed
during the past two months. The
cross was placed on the spire of
Grace Church on Saturday, 263 ft.
from the ground, and thousands of
people stood below with bated
breath as the huge stone weighing
over a ton was fixed in its final rest
ing place. Grace Chureb, which is
the fashionable centre for Episco
palianism in New York, is being
thoroughly overhauled-the pews
reupholstered, and some very fine
extra work in carvings, &c., put in.
The tendency to showy adornments
is running away with the common
sense of the people, and while there
is something truly grand in a fine
stained glass window, especially
when devoted to some scriptural
subject, the present trashy style of
adornment with yellows and reds
and blues and gold, while well
enough for a cir"us or a theatre,
is altogether out of place in a
church, A great many alterations
have been made in all of our great
churches; and many thousands of
dollars have been expended in their
adornment. In a couple of weeks
the congregations will be back, and
the vagrant shepherds, fortified by
the expertence gained in Lor.don,
Paris, Vienna and Berlin-not to
mention Cairo and Jerusalem, will
be prepared to combat the world
and the nlesh and make it very un
comfortable for the
But a-s I remarked in a former
letter, there seems to be quite an
affinity between the church and the
stage. They suspend operations
abon4 the samo time, and they com
mence op evations togethmer. Wbile
I write, Union Square, or that por
t?on o" it which is to the right of
Broadway, swarms with members
of the theatrical profession. Many

promises to be a busy one. The
cry is still that we have no American
dramas or dramatists, and if some
of our would be crities are to be
believed, very few American ac
t,ors ar actresses. Yet in the face
of this, is the fact, that "Hazel

TINE INVNERI LIFE OF CLEVI
No one who looks from the on
side upon the stained glass win don~
of a cathbedsral can tell how glorion:
ly the colors blend within, whe
in the declining sunlight, wari
gles, rose bloom and soft amethyi
wander over arch and pillar, an
the "shielded escutcheons" bIns
with the blood "of qneens an
kings." And so it is with a goc
man's life. They who know it oi
ly from the outside can have bat
faint idea of itq beanty and i1
truth. Unless indeed we can se
him as he knows himself, and witl
ont any suspicion on his part th:
we observed him, it is diffilenti
the extremne to make a just estimal
of his cbaracter and worth. Fo
tunately, in the case of one upc
whom, at this time, the eyes <
millions of American freemen ai
fixed, we have the opportunity u

Nov. 7, 1882.
My Det. Rothar 1 have ji
is voted. 1 sit here in the Mayor's
>n office alone, with the exception of
ic an artist f. om Frank L:siiu's news
n, paper, who is sketcbing the office.
re If mother was here I should be
as writing to her, and I feel as if it
re were time for me to be writing to
- some one who %%ili believe what I
re write. I have been for sce --time
e in the atmosphere of certain suc.
at cess, so that I have been sure that
a I should assume the duties of the
high office fi.r which.I bav been
r- named: . have tried-hardI .the
o- light of this fact, to pi opcrlfappre
y ciate the responsibitites tbnt will
d rest epon'eme, and they are much,
e too much, underestimated. But
I the thought that has tronbled me
r is : Can I well perform my duties,
r and in euch a manner as to do some
s g'od to the people of the State? I
d kncw there is room for it, and I
s know tiut I am honest and sincere
e in my desire to do well, Lut the
t question is whether I know enough
r- to accomplish what I desire.
,' The social life which seems to
- await me has also been a subject of
A much anxious thought. I have a
-e notion that I can regulate that very
much as I- desire, and if I can I
cI shall spend very little time in the
- pnrely ornamental part of the office.
f In loin,t of fact, I will tell you, first
of all others, the policy 1 intend to
adopt, and that is to make the mat
t ter a b,,sine.s engig7 ?nert betWceen the
t people of the State a;ul uiself; in
which the otligation o;t my side is to
a >erform the duties assignced me with
fan eye single to the interest of my
enlllol/ers. I shail have no idea of
re election or of anyjigher political
c preferment in my head, but be very
r thankfal and happy if I can well
serve one term as the people's
e Govei nor. Do you know that if
SnotLer were alive I should feel so
- much safer ? I have always thought
s that her prayers had. much to do
s with my success. I shall expect
you all to help me in that way. Be
e lieve me, your affectionate brother.
G ROVER C'IEvELAND.
r, The reference to the Governor's
r mother is made the more pathetic
by the knowledge that her death
s occurred but. a few weeks previous
to the writing of the letter. Who
can help feeling that in it Governor
Cleveland poured out his whole
r heart! We must remember, also,
that. what he promised has already
crj stalized into performance. Gov
s ernor Cleveland has spent very lit
e tle time in '"the purely ornamental
e part" of his ofice ; he has in very
n truth made the Governorship "a
a business engagement." between the
people of the State and hinself,
and performed the duties assigned
him "with an eye single" to the in
terests of his employers, the people.
e We feel justified in5 saying here,
upon the authority of one whose
word is always accepted without
question in South Carolina, that
eGovernor Cleveland did not desire
to be nominated for President, and
preferred to be allowed to serve his
eifll term as the Chief Magistrate of
ethe State of New York. Indeed,
a resec oledge of his wishes in this
rsetwas used as an argument
against his nomination. l t is, how -
ever, an additional reason for his
eThere is pathos inexpressible in
e Governor Cleveland's exclamation
rthat if his motber were alive he
would feel so much safer, and that
he had always thought that her
gprayere had had much to do with
hissuccess. Who will deny it, or
dout i iSurlyhe who in the
1first moment of his elevation to a
position of exalted importance
Sgives his first thought to his nmo
r ther,. and ca:ls her blessed, is a
man whom the American poop1e
can safely trust. There is in the
letter published to-day a strain of
homely feeling, a suggestion of
simple earnestness and truth, which
a singles Governor Cleveland out-a
the man for the time. A man of
t the people, possessing and cherish.
-s ing every domestic affection, loyal
- jto his public trust as to his publice
,trust as to his own household, he
n!can.be depended on to keep in
it mind, always the interests and the
d Irights of all conditions of men.
hi Better by far than any platform of
d promiss is the simple, heartfelt let.

a and honest methods, and avows his
s faith in the efficacy of a mother's
t "By Jove," said the lynx-eyed
n proof-.reader on a Boston paper,
e "somebody go down and kick slug *
