LET 'EIt.
The papers are all a blaze of ex
citement at the continuance of the
elopement epidemtic, and while we
are not moraily certain that we ca:i
prove it contagious on the spo;tdic
theory it is nevertheless true that
the man who has money and pretty
daughters had better look out for
them, for while it may be possible
to take care of one of these treasu
res in the Bank Vault or in the
strong box of the safe Deposit. the
other treasure is an uncertain do
mestic factor that hangs within the
reach of every bu cher boy, gro.
cery clerk, or coachman and like
the riches spoken of in the good
book, it takes wings to itself and
flies m:way. It not only flies away
but the butcher. the grocery clerk
or the coachman contrives to fly
about the same time, and there
lieth the mi'k in the cocoanut.
It is well enough to look this
thing squarely in the face, and al
though Broadbrim is not vain
enough to suppose that anythlin ghe
can say will prevent any foolish
girl from making a ninny of herself,
yet there are many s rvices in tihis
world for which we neither espect
nor receive any reward, and this is
one of them.
When the world was very young
Love was blind, and now that he
has grown old1, in audit-on to the
original calamity of his birth hie is
deaf. No logic moves him, no rea
son swerves him from his wayward
fancies; ruin mighlt be right in
front of him. but being blind he
does not see it. 'rThe most logical
reasons might be presented to turn
him aside from his headstrong
course, but being deaf he does not
hear it.
Strong minded females may say
whut they please. but there is a
very wide diversity between men
and women, and it is nowhere seen
in suchl glaring colors as in the
matter of marriage. An intelkcc
tdal cultivated man may possibly
marry and love an ignorant unculti
vated woman, one who notwith.
standing her ignorance l as a gen
tie and affectionate nature. one who
does her best to sooth him in his
hours of sorrow; who thinks of bis
comforts and provides for them;
men are grateful for these things,
for small as they may appear to the
unthinking they are the weights
that turn the golden balance of
life. Dr. Johnson, the intellectual
Colossus of h:s age, though a coarse
brute in his ordinary associations,
found in Mrs. T1hrale- (an ignorant
old dod)an aglo light,
-which was a joy and a consolation
to him up to the day of her deatht
Rosseau adored his house keeper,
and ignorant as site was, h - delight
ed in reading to 1her the choicest
productions of his genius, and it is
equally certain thtat he entertained
a most profound reverence for her
opinions- Hlenreich IIein when he
was electrifying Germany with his
writings, was thme devoted slave of
a woman who could scarcely read
one of his manuscripts, aid wai
not only ignorant but vulgar and
ugly.. Men may do this, but I
doubt if the woman was ever born
who could long love a man who
was intellctually her in ferior. Miss
Morrisini is not the first young wo
-man who ran away with her fatther's
coachman and she will not be the
last, but I have yet to see a single
-instance where the match was a
happy one, and where the woman
ldid not repent her hasty choice in
~sackcloth and ashes. Now there is
sno very good reas -n why a coach
-. man or a stable boy may not be a
very good sort of person, but the
atmosphere of a stable is not
conducive to the highest intellec
tual culture, and itf it were the
-yol4ng gentlemen who amuse them
selves currying the htorses and per

The ;ist mia(l illusion past. no n
educated br:iny woman ever loved
an ignorant ;aphead since the wori e
be!_an. Aft 'r casting her lot with t
him, she may, silently and without t<
a murmur, have walked to her grave n
while the tanker was uating 1..r b
heart-but it was the madness of m
despair. Pause, girl-; pause-mnr- c
rv a dwarf if you please, or take a
feller with a hunp on his back like
a Persian camel; take a feller with
one leg, or a chap with no legs at all;
but get a feller with a head on him;
he may be u,ly as a ka"garoo, but t
beauty; is only skin deep at best,
but if he has brain and is a decently d
sober and industrious man, he is
worth all the Johns that ever wore 1.
a cockade, cracked a whip, or shov. tl
eled o a stable In regard to M1. r
Morisini I have very little symnph t
thy for him. For a number of yea rsK
he occupied the position of' Boune-:r
to Jay Gould. It is almost t.n a
years ago since New York was sta:-t
led with the news (hat a man nam-d
Selover had thrown .Jay Gon!d down
a cellar and k:ll'd him They had C
been fast friend -; or at least, Se o- t
ver thought so, : (d on Jay Gould's
advice, Selover v. ut inito a certain t
fancy stock. and while he was wortil
several thou::au;d. when I he sun ro e
that morning-when the sun we.it
down lie was cleaned out, julst as
clean as a shotgun. After the ad
journiment of' tihe board he met
Gould on Exchange Place. and seia
ing him by the slack of' his breeches
he dropped him down an area; which
was not a very astoni-bn feat f or 1
him,.for Selors r turned the scale at d
265. and Goul who happened just
then to be in prime conditio i.
weighed 93. After that Mr. Gould
never went out alone; next day he
engaged Mr. Morisini, who was uin
derstood to be a fighter, who carricd
Derringers in his pockets a'nd B3ow
ieknives in his boots. He gener
ally walked about ten feet behind
Mr. Gould, and every feller knew h
just as sure as preachin' that if he u
laid a hand on the little Croesus t1
he friend of' Garibaldi would send i
him into kingdom come before he e
could say Jack, much less Robin. C
son. By and bye, the Bouncer in c
addition to his salary was allowed f
10 take an occasir naf flver at stocks,h
and aided hy M-. Gouild's advice,b
ou may be sure he did not lose.b
From extremie pov'erty lie mounted
to opulence, amid while twenty
years ago lhe would have welcomed f
a rich man's coachman into his
family. to-day it gives him a fit of t
the colic, from which he may not
recover. I pity the coachman for
he is b:ound to lose his wife, but he
will lick her first. I pity the girl c
when the scales drop from her eves t
as they are sure to do, and after
John has found his way to the pen'-f
itentiary and Susan is doing wash
ing in a cellar, for fifty cents a doz.
en, she will realize the beauty of 4
Whittier's lines-" Of all the sad <
words from tongue or pen, the sad
dest are the se-'It might have
been.'"
Dr. John H-all has introduced a
most excellent regulation at his
magnificent church on the Fifth
Avenue. W hen the service begins
the doors are closed, and late comn
ers are permitted to admire the
beauty of the building from the out
side. T his prevents any stupid lazy
man, or vain and foolish woman
from disturbing the minister and
the entire congregation. Long is
the list of' fashionable weddings
announced, takingr two whole col.
'mns of one of our large dailies.
Politics rage, amusements of all
kinds are in full blast. and Beecher

Some minutes elapsed before lie
as permitted to speak, and when
e did so it was with a voice trem
os with emotion. Turning to
e throng he made a brief address
a recognition of the warm wet
ome of which lie had been the re
ipient, and then turning to his old
omiand he uttered the touching
,nd eloquent sentences in wiich
e bade farewell to the men who
ad followed his fortunes since the
eginning of the war. IIis Ian
uage may not have been recorded,
t those who were present will not
orget his closing remark: "Soldiers !
think you will all hear witness

>elieve you will be true to your past

THE HAMPTON BATLE-FL.A;.
'The flag of the II unpton Legion
was made from a portion of the
wedding dress of Mrs. IHIampton,
and was presented by her in per
son to the connmand. Ime fewc
shreds of it which remain show hons
faithfully it was borne in the thick
est of the fray. More than twenty
men have gone to their soldiers
rest while hearing it aloft amid the
din and horror of battle. At thE
beginning of the war Gen. llamp
ton was a wealthy man. He sup
plied his soldiers and quarterec
them on his own grounds. ThE
Legion comprised some of the bes1
men in the State, and there wer<
scores of young planters and pro
fessionnl men who, volunteering
as mere privates, with little hope o
promotion. represented millions o1
dollars. The esprit dui corps wa:
something remarkable.
INCIDENTS RELATING TO THE LEGION
An incident that occurred with,

of Dr". Hlyder 1). Bedon, now ol
Mississippii, who served in the
ranks during the entire war, fromi
the toesin that called him to Bull
Run to thme tap of the last drum at
Appomattox. Being remionstrated
with by friends who dlepicted the
hardships of camp life in his capa.
city as a private, his reply was
"Any man will except the position
of ail officer. but every man will
not fight as a private. I'll take my
chances and endeavor to do my
duty." HIe fought gallantly and
camne out of the war unscathed. A
humorous incident is related of' an
other private in the Legion whc
left a sumptuous home. The reg
iment was encamped near the Po
tomiac, and the young warrior hay.

On awakening he fourd that every

probably by some luckless indiv

improved by war and whose wantm
were w. rse. 'l his was a predica

might expect marching orders a
any momne:'t. HIe arose to the situ

to his friends, they called tie corn
pany together to consider the ques
tion~of "repairs." They voted bin
an outfit in very short order. but fo:
uniqueness it has doubtless seldon

While the Legion were encampe<
on the banks of the Opequan, ini Vir

Ie was mounted on the back of'
sorry looking mule and was himsell
with his "thces'- and *'thous." a typ
ical specinman of an anti-beligcren
from the backwoods. The boy
jeered him from one end of the cam]
to the oIlher, but lie paid liitle atter
tion to them until he reached tb
headquarters of Gen. Hampton
where, being met and co)rdiall
greeted by a number of officers, h
quietly raised the colored glasse
that concealed his,eyes, removed

ures of one of the most daring scout
in the Army of Virginia. Ha ha

She looked like a savage edition of
a head I have seen among Julian's
crayon studies. Her dusky arms
were hare. A few brass rings or
nanented her wrists. 11er dress
was composed of two rectangular
pieces of a dark and coarse woolen
stuff borlered witd rez ; the latter
is a favorite color of Indians.
These pieces were joined at one
cnd. a place being left open for the
head to pass throu.h. A piece of
buckskin bound them about her
waist Her feet were small and
well formed, but truth compels me
tc confess that they were thickly
encrusted with the yellow mud of
the Cieneza. The nearest approach
to a washing they ever made was
when her path lay across a brook
which she had to ford. Her hands,
alas ! were covered with dirt and
clay, for it was my poor little no
heroine's daily labor to dig up the
papa, or Navajo potato, with her
young fingers. I should have hesi
tated to lend her my cloak or my
sbawl if I intended to wear it again.
And if I were compelled to don it
again after she had worn it I should
cause it to do auty for some days
as a horse-cloth first. This, I have
learned from old frontiersmen, from
Mexican scouts, guides, etc, re
moves the unpleasant consequences
of Indian wear. The perfume of
the wild red rose was not remarka
bly agreeable. Judged from a
dancing school point of view, her
step was not graceful. Like all
Indians and other untutured chil
dren of nature, she turned out her
heels and turned in her toes.

POOR LITTLE BILLY.
"Please, Mr. Conductor, [ ain't
got no money, but I want to get
home quick, for Billy's hurted very
bad."
The speaker was a shabbily at
tired little girl, apparently about
nine years of age, who had just en
tered a car near Dover street, car
rying in her arms, wrapped in a
faded shatwl, what appeared to be a
baby.
"I knows your car, mister," she
continued, 'it goes close to my
street; and Il1l get the money from
father an' pay you."
"All right, sis," said the conduc
tor, kindly. "llow did the baby
get hurt?"
"It ain~t a baby." she answered,
"'it's- my brother Patsey's dog. He
was run over by a herdic. Patsey's
crippled, an' thinks everythin' er
Billy."'
She had hardly ceased speaking
when there was a convulsive move
ment in the shawl, followed by a
subdued yelp; then all was still.
Half opening the bundle, the little
girl glanced into it.
'-Oh, dear, dear !"she cried, b irs t
ing into tears. '-what shall I do ?
-Billy's dead."
So saying, she threw back the
shawl, and exposed to view the
bruised and battered remains of a.
small mongrel terrier, that lookei.
in truth, as much tike a piece of'
ragged door-mat as anything.
--Oh ! dear ! dear," she repeated,
again and again, between her sobs,
I"what shall I do?"
There was not a dry eye in tie

Splaythings for him, too."
The face brightened scmewhat.
