BY HUTU OOOULEY.
With my wife sind daughter, I was
making a tour through Europe. We
had seen the sights in London and
Paris, had gazed with rapture on the
vine-clad banks of tin. Rhine, and at
length we were enjoying the rotnatl
tic scenery of Lake Zurich. We had
started early one morning on an ex
cursion to a distant village, and did
not return until late in the afternoon,
consequently I did not know of the
We had music in our private par
lor that evening, and among the
songs which my daughter sang was
the old-fashioned one, "On the .Mar
gin of r'nir Zurich's Waters." The
song caused mi; to think of my sister,
who had joined the heavenly choir,
long years before. It had been a
favorite of mine, and she had often
sung it for me.
My daughter was vcry~much like
her Aunt, and that evening she wore
a white rose in her hair, which made
the resemblance still more striking.
I was so much depressed by old mem
ories, that I could not remain in the
room, so lighting a cigar, I went on
As I stepped out, I encountered
an old friend who had arrived that
After exchanging .salutations he
said, "a friend and myself were at
tracted by the singing and we have
been guilty of the rudeness of looking
through the window, at the fair
singer. When my companion saw
the young lady, he clutched my arm,
and he was much affected by the last
song. lie had walked away, just
before you made your appearance-,
but nut tfhtil ho*" had nskfcd nie to
ascertain the name of the lady, and if
possible secure him an introduction."
What is your friend's name? 1
"Col. .James Cordrny," he replied.
Great Heavens! I exclaimed. Do
you call that man your friend?
"1 only made his acquaintance a
few weeks ago, in Paris. Hois such
a genial whole-soul fellow, that I feel
quite a friendship for him. Some of
our party have hiutcd that he is vio
lent when in his cups, but 1 have
uever seen him under the influence of
liquor. Do you know anything about
I him? asked Philip Morris.
Yes, 1 know that he is a scoundrel
aud a murderer. The thought that
his eyes should rest on my daughter,
and that he should wish to make her
acquaintance, almost maddens inc. I
am not surprised that he should be
startled at the sight id' one who so
closely resembles his victim. He has
heard that song in other days, from
lips now cold and still.
"I hope you arc mistaken," said
Norris, "this man has so much the
appearance of an honorable gentle
man, that it is hard for me to believe
him tobe a murderer. 1 wish you
would tell me all you know of him."
I am too much excited to talk now,
I said, but come to me in an hour,
and I will pro e my words.
I had calmed myself, and my wife
and daughter had retired, when
Philip Norris entered our parlor.
This narrative w:ll be painful to
me, I said, but I want you to under
stand, that 1 have good reasons for
hating that man. When I was leu
years old, 1 was on a visit to my
grandparents. During that lime, a sis
ter was born. All thoseyc-rs I had
been an only child, and I naturally
had a great, desire to sec the new
In my mind, lean see my mother
as she stco 1 in the vine-cov
ered porch with the babe in hcrnrms,
?m the afternoon of my return home.
After embracing her, and kissing my
sister, I asked what is her name?
"Rose," replied my mother.
I shall call her White Kose, I said,
for see how she is clutching at that
spray of white, roses, just within iu
her reach, and ever after, she was
White Rose to me. I loved my sister
I almost to idolatry. She grow up as
sweet and pure an her namesake rose.
She was only seventeen when she was
wooed by James Cord ray. I had
known him from his boyhood, and
no young man stood higher in pub
lie estimation. After his lather's
death lie had removed to a distant
part of the State and I had lost sight
of him for near five years. When he
came to visit us, I saw no change in
him, and my sister's youth was the
only objection we made to an immed
We would have been glad to have
kept our darling with tis always, but
thinking she \ ould marry at some
time, and knowing no man we pre
ferred to .lames Cord ray, wo consent
ed to their marriage.
Our White Rose had never had a
wish ungratilled, and we thought we
were conducing to her happiness.
Her bridal robe was looped with
white roses, and she wore a wreath id'
the same Mowers on her head.
Her husband took her to his home,
and wo did not see her again until
my own marriage, in less than a year
after, was the occasion of a visit from
I was too much absorbed in my
own happiness, to notice any change
in my sister, but my mother after
wards, expressed her fears to me,
that our darling was unhappy, She
thought her husband was wanting in
those attentions which a wife had a
right to expect.
There was nothing in her letters to
excite our suspicion, so I concluded
my mother was mistaken in her sup
Another year passed. We did not
receive letters as frequently, as form
erly, but they were the same tiHcctiori
ate epistles when-they did come
Then there was u longer interval
than usual, and at length h letter was
received from a lady, who wrote, that
my sister was ill and her husband
was absent, no one knew where, i:: an
hour I was on my way to our darling.
My White Rose, should not droop
all alone, she should come to the hiv
ing hearts which were yearning for
On my arrival I was met by an old
lady, the writer id'the letter, who told
inc all she knew of the cruel treat

1 had been completely deceived in
the man. He was a drunkard, and a

My sister, who had been so tender
ly nurtured, who had never heard a
harsh word in her life, had been sub
jected to the grossest indignities.
Her husband in his drunken fury,
had more than once used violence to
her. Instead of cherishing and pro
tecting her. he had hurled her to the
lloor, and had left the house with
boinc of his inebriate companions,
while she was in tin uneoncious state.
When Mrs. Moore heard of her con
dition, she went to her, and after
wards wrote to us, without her know
When 1 went to my sinter's room I
found her as whitens her robe. She
extended her emaciated arms, but
was loo weak, to utter a word. 1 told
her, mother wanted to sei* her, and
had sent me for her.
"I am not strong enough lo go,"
I will lake you in my arms, 1 re
plied. The white roses are blooming,
and I want you lo see how beautiful
they are. Site smiled faintly.
Ah! the sweetest of all roses was
lying there withering-?dying, crush
ed by the one who should have loved
her above all others!
To have shortened her days with a
pistol ball would have been called
murdei' The breaking of a woman's
heart is not set down in the calendar
of crimes; but it is nevertheless mur
der in the sight of Heaven.
While the necessary preparations
were being made for my sister's re
moval, I wrote on my card these
words, "Whenever we meet, one of us
must die.1' I placed it in aconspicious
place, where J thought James Cor
dray would see itou his return.

A LAWYER FOILED.
Not even a lawyer, however skill
ful in cross examination, can make
a witness tell the truth provided the
witness wishes to evade it. It is im
p issiblc to put a question in such ex
a< t language that it will demand the
desired answer. It was necessary, on
a certain occasion in court to com
pel a witness to testify as to the way
in w hic h a certain Mr. Smith treated
"Well, sir," said the lawyer, with a
sweet and winning smile?a smile
intended to drown all suspicion as to
all ulterior purposes?"how does Mr.
Smit.hjgenernlly ride a^horse?"
The witness looked up innocently
"Generally astraddle sir, T be
The lawyer asked again:
"But sir, w hat gait does he ride?"
imperturblc wituess answered:
"He never rides any gait at all, sir,
but I've seen his boys ride every gate
The lawyer saw that he was on the
track of a tartar and his next ques
tion was very insinuating:
"How dots Mr. Smith ride when
.he is in company with others? I de
mand a clear answer!"
I "Well, sir, he keeps up with the
rest, if his horse is able to, or if uot
h?- rolls behind. '
The lawyer was by this time al
most beside himself and asked:
"And how does he ride when he is
"I don't know," was the reply; "I
was never with him when he was
And there the case w as dropped.
A daily visitor to the cage of a
handsome canary in the otllce of the
Philadelphia Time* is a mouse. He
is welcomed by a song, and as he eats
the seed and drinks the water from
the cups, the bird gives evidence of
his being a favored guest. After hie
meals he frequcnthy plays about the
bottom of the cage an hour.
The National Bank of Adams,
New York, has gone into liquidation.
Recently we spoke of an effort in
Connecticut to enact a law reviving
tlie whippingpost to provide u pun
ishment for men who bent their wives.
The advocacy of the measure impli
ed the necessity of it. The demand
for the whipping post dees not seem
to be couliucd to Connecticut but the
question of its revival is now agitat
ing the people of Indiana. It is signi
ficant that the same reason is alleg
ed to exist there as in New Englaud.
Wife beating has become so common
that this severe and degrading pun
ishment must be called iuto requisi
tion. We regret to observe such a
lamentable condition of morals in
any section of our common country.
Things must be terribly out of joint,
where such despicable meai n 'ss can
demand public attention. The man
must he depraved, indeed who could
strike his wife?the mother^of his
children. There must be something
radically wrong about the morals
and religion of Indiana as well as
New England. It is more noticeable
because of their repeated claims to
being better than others. Is it nut a
duty for Christian people in this sec
tion to send missionaries to that re
gion. The tield is large and the op
portunities many for good work.?
SCE EH AT JACKSON'S INAUGURA
De tcribing the scenes'at President
Jackson's inauguration, a letter in
the Washington Star axytr. Mr.
Webster, writing from Washington,
says: "I never saw such a crowd
here before. Personsjhavc conic 500
miles to see General-Jackson."
Judge Story writes: "After the cere
mony was over the Prcsidcnt'wcnMo
j the palace to receive company, and
there he was visited by immense
crowds of all sorts of people, from the
highest and most polished down to
the most vulgar and gross in the na
tion. I never saw such a mixture.
The reign of King Mob seemed tri
umphant. I was glad to escape from
the scene as soon as possible." No
doubt Story was glad to escape; he
was a bit ter opponent of Jackson, and
it was uot to be expected that he
could enjoy these festivities. "A
profusion of refreshments," writes
participants, had been provided.
Orange punch was made by barrels
full; but as the waiters opened the
doors to bring it out, a rush was
i made, the glasses broken, the pails
[ of liquor upset and the most painful
confusion prevailed. To such a pain
ful degree was this carried that wine
and iec-cream could not be brought
out to the ladies, and tubs of punch
were taken from the lo\v< r story into
the garden to lead off the crowd from
the rooms. Men with boots on, heavy
with mud, stood on the damask-satin
covered chairs in their eagerness to
