PLACERVILLE, EL DORADO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 1861.
Sitting lonely, ever lonely,
Waiting, waiting for one only,
Thu» 1 count the weary moment* parting by;
And the heavy evening gloom
Gathers «lowly in the room,
And the chill November darkness dims the sky.
Now the countless busy feet
Cross each other in the street,
And 1 watch the faces flitting past my door,
But the step that lingered nightly.
And the hand that rapped so lightly
And the face that beamed so brightly,
Cornea no mora !
By the firelight’» fliful gleaming
1 am dreaming, ever dreaming,
And the rain is slow ly falling all around ;
And voices that arsnsarest,
Of friends the best and dearest,
Appear to have a strange and distant sound.
Now the weary wind is sighing,
And the murky day is dying, (door;
And the withered leaves lie scattered round my
But that voice whoie gentle greeting
Ret this heart so wildly beating
At each fond and frequent meeting.
Comes'no more !

P II I L L I P ’ H WIFE.
UT r«A!SC» BAMIBORX.
“ llou- is it, Phil, timi you, n itli your
wealth, connections, punì looks nini tal
ents, have never married V quei ied Char
ley Allen of bis friend, Pillili)) Kivcrs.
The person addressed, n tall well formed
gentleman of some thirty years, turned
Ir mi the window at u bidì be stood, gar.
ing carelessly into the street, lie was
very handsome; bis blaek wavy hair
shading a brow broad and white ; nod
bis large eyes, which puzzled one to de
cide of what hue they were, were full of
expression.
*• Well,” he replied after a moment's
pause, “ Charley, you have enumerated
quite a host of it table qualities; no
u under you think it stitinge I have so
long remained in single blessedness ; but
I should never wish to marry one who
esteemed me for my ‘wealth, connections,
good looks, or talents,' as yon are pleased
to say. (.should never wish to mairy
with* one uho cared for these alone.
I’.haw !" And he laughed rather bitterly,
as Charley Allen thought.
•' Hut, ’ Phil, did you never see one
whom you would like to claim as your
wife? It seems to me, Itivers, you are
little lì Iteti by nature to he, what you are
now termed, a woman baler.”
Phillip Uiv, rs' fare was clouded for n
moment, mol bis voice was Itali tender '
when be repln d.
•• Ami so I am ; and I do not mind tell
ing yon, Charley, that, with all his wealth
an.l success, Phillip Hirers is not happy.
You a-k me if I never knew one whom I
would wish to call my wife: Yes." He
paused, ami ran his lingers through the
mass of wavy hair which clustered about
bis white forehead ;—then, drawing a
diair near the cheellttl lire, which cast a
pleasant glow about the room, he contin
ued : •• 1 ran do no better, this evening,
than to tel l you the story of my life, if
you would like to hear it."
Allen mulch d assent.
" Well, sitting here, in this ‘bachelor’s
hall’of mine, I can scarcely realize that
what I inn about to tell you is not fiction
—a dream which my w ild fancy lias in
vented. Just thirty years ago, this com
ing April, I first saw light. Ah to my
childhood, I suppose there is nothing to
interest von, ns 1 was like most other
urchins—full of mischief, and receiving
innumerable reminders of my misdemean
ors by sundry cutfs and feruling* both at
home and at the country school to which
I was early introduced. When I reached
the age of fifteen my molhc» died ; and,
ns my father had been killed by being
thrown frutti a horse, when I was hut a
few months old, I was now left alone in
the world, save one relative—my mother’s
anele. On learning of her death, and
tnj- friendless situation, he came for me,
and conveyed me to his own house, and,
ns he had no children, I became as a son
to him. In one year I entered college,
for I had improved well the little oppor
tunity afforded me for learning. Perhaps
Madame Humor had already told you of
my wild freaks and dissipation during
the first two years of my college course;
certainly she brought some such report*
to my uncle’s car, and he spoke to me of
them in a manner w hich irritated, to the
greatest degree, my proud spirit. I ans
wered him in a way which provoked bis
anger, and 1 left him, vowing never again
to cross the threshold. I resolved to still
continue in my college course, although I
was aware that I must win my own way
there, for I would receive no more assist
ance from my uncle.
* After meditating for along time upon
the matter, I resolved to become a teach
er, thinking thus to defray my expenses.
Through the intervention of a classmate,
I at length secured the situation of teach
er in a small school in the town of N
... You smile, Allen, at the idea
of the fastidious Phillip Kivcrs a teacher
in a small country school ; —but there has
been n great change since then. Well,
all tilings went on well in iny little etn
'pirc, as I sometimes termed it ; yet I was
dissatisfied ; my pride rebelled against
■ti V situation, and 1 grow more bitter than
ever against my uncle ; the days were
lung, weary ones which 1 passed in that
school room.
‘Otte morning, as I entered in my usual
careless, preoccupied way, I nict at the
door a'child, who at once engaged my at
tention. I had never seen her before,
and presumed she was a new pupil. She
could not have been more than ten years
old, yet I fell attracted toward her, as to
none other I had ever seen. I can see
her now*, with Iter brown curls clustering
around a face which impressed you with
its sad yet beautiful expression. Her
eves, seeming almost unnaturally large,
were of a hnzle hue: and, as she gazed
for a moment earnestly in my face, she
seemed almost to read my heart. Iho
hands, clasped together, were browned by
exposure to wind and sun, but small and
well shaped ; her dress was of cheap ma
terial, but plain and neat—quite at va
riance with the gaudy ornaments with
which some of the elder girls chose to ar
ray themselves. There was something
about her which caused mo to gaze into
her face, till a quick flush reminded me,
and, walking ttrmly to my desk, I called
the school to order. After the opening
exercises were over I crossed the room,
and, standing by the new pupil, I asked
her name. ‘Agatha Lee,’ she exclaimed
in a low sweet voice, which reminded roe
of the chirping of the robin, who waked
mo every morning by his carol outside my
window. ‘Agaths,’ I repeated, thinking
how well the name suited the demure lib
tie figure. Again her face flushed, and
pittying her confusoli, I moved buck to
my desk. I need not tell you, Charley,
how often 1 glanced toward her during
the day ; for 1 aee. by your Incredulous
look, that you are half Inclined tQ believe
I am inventing this which 1 nip telling
V ou; bull tell you that phild, Agatha
Lee, found that .door in my heart which
uotui other has ever done,
LONELY.
, I learned that Agatha was the only
daughter of a widow lady who had seen
better days, but now took in sewing to
support herself and Agatha. After
Agatha’s introduction to the school I fre
quently walked over to the little white
cottage by the hillside, and spent hours
there ; in fact, my numerous visits there
were noticed ; and a lady jokingly told
me that, were Aggie a little older, or her
mother twenty years younger, she should
think there was a chance of my gaining
a bride during my stay in the village.
This had but the effect to cause me to re
flect a little ; 1 was now nineteen, Agatha
Lee but ten ; and I formed the resolve,
one day, to win her when a few years had
passed away ; she was a child, then, but
yet a woman to me. You may call this
foolish—romantic if you choose, and I
wilt admit it all ; hut it was a life m
mance, and one which, now that joy is
gone embitters my life.*
And the speaker was silent for a mo
ment, gazing into the glowing embers,
with a mistiness gathering in his brilliant
eyes.
’ ‘ The winter wore away, and Aggie
grew to love me as a brother. I could
see her fare light up when she heard my
voice and the smile grew brighter on her
lips. Hut the time approached for me to
leave her—to go hack to college life again,
I did not speak to tier of this until one
day just before ! left. I was walking
from school with her.
* * Aggie,’ I said, watching her face as
I spoke, ‘Aggie, I am going to leave you.’
Stic turned and caught my hand. ‘To
leave me !’ she echoed.
* Yes, Aggie. I am going hack to my
school now. lam going to he u pupil in
stead of a teacher. Throwing open the
gale which stood before her mother's
house, I said, ‘And you, Aggie, are you
sony lam going to leave?' 1 repented
of (lie question in a moment, for she gave
no answer, but a tear fell on my hand.
‘Do not cry, Aggie, for I shall come hack
to see you often, if you wish?’ Oh! will
you, will you, Mi. Rivers?’ and smiles
banished the tears from her face. I ‘will,
Agatha.’
We entered the house. Mrs. Lee sat
near the window, ns usual, sewing.
‘Oh! mother. Mr. Rivers is going
awar,' said Agnthn.
•is he?’ said Mrs. Lee, glancing up
from her work : and seeing me, she ad'led,
‘so soon, Mr. Rivers? Well Aggie and I
sfinii miss you very much, for we have
but few visitors,' and she sighed.
* Ahi Mrs. Lee, I sfinii claim the privi
lege of sometimes calling upon you, if
you will grant it.'
* I shall hr most happy to do so,’ she
answered, smiling.
Agatha left the room at that moment.
* Mrs. Leo,’ I spoke quickly, ‘I have a
request to make to you.’
She looked at me in amazement.
*A strange request, doubtless, you will
think it, hut it is also an earnest one.
Your daughter, Agatha, is hut a child
yet; she is more than llmt to me; and I
ask you, if one day I can win her heart
that ! may have your consent to our
union ?'
I think she must have deemed me mnd,
for she rose to her feet ami gazed at me
without replying.
• Why I ask now is that I may have
permission to hear the expenses of her
education,' I continued.
She spoke then.
‘ Your request is indeed a strange one,
yet I believe you to be serious in it, and
I would agree to your proposal ; but Ag
gie is too young to decide in such a mat
ter, and 1 would nut bind her to such an
engagement.’
‘ I do not wish to do that, Mrs. Lee ;
I wish her to know nothing of it; only
let me try to win her, and for the rest,
even if she bestows her love upon some
oilier, it will be a pleasure to me to bear
the expenses of her education.’
‘Your offer is a generous one, and
though it be a most singular one, I will
accent,’
‘ Thank you,’ I cried eagerly.
• Hut I learn that you also bear the
expenses of your college course ; how
can you afford lo have an additional
draft upon you?'
‘ I assure 1 can—l shall have an ob
ject for my labor.’
•One thing, you must prove yourself
worthy of her, my dear little Aggie'—
and the mother's voice pronounced the
worda tenderly.
• I will,’ I answered, crimsoning like a
school girl at the recollection of my two
years of college life.
Mm. Lee smiled.
• Not a word of this to Aggie.’
‘ No.’
Just then she entered, ell unconscious
of the strange compact into which the
two before her hud entered. 1 moved to
ward the door.
‘Arc you going, Mr. Riversf
• Yes, Aggie, and I must bid you now
goodbye.’
‘Goodbye, Mr. Rivers.’
• Will you give something more, Ag
gie?’
She gravely came to my side and kissed
me, and I left her.
• I know you arc thinking, Charley,
that this is Àe most eccentric affair that
ever occurred in the life of that most ec
centric person, Phil Rivers, and you are
right. It was strange, and I wonder now
why I was induced to engage in an affair
which I might have foreseen would end
as it did. Hut to return to my story, as
the novel writers say.
• I left Aggie Lee that night, and, ow
ing to unforeseen circumstances, I did not
meet her for a year or more. After that
1 visited her frequently, till at length she
reached the age of sixteen.
• I cannot describe her to you ns she
then looked to me, only that she was
more beautiful than I have ever seen be
fore or since—more beautiful than you
can picture, Charley. I loved her madly
—almost worshiped her ; and she—well,
she said she loved me, and I believed her.
She promised to be mine, and her eigh
teenth birthday wc decided should wit
ness our marriage.
• When she was nearly seventeen I
went to the West and began my career
as a lawyer. For a time every mail
brought me a letter from Agatha, and she
grew dearer than ever to me. At length
her letters were less frequent ; and,
though I wrote and begged to know the
cause, I soon ceased to hear from her.
Surprised beyond expression at this, I
made arrangements to return ; and one
fine summer's morning, but a few weeks
before the time appointed for our mar
riage,*f walked up the little graveled walk
and stood Before the little white cottage
of Mrs. Leo. I rang the bell impatiently.
A moment passed, and I heard no an
swering footsteps. 1 looked up at the
windows and noticed, for the first time,
that the shutters were closed, and an air
of loneliness and quiet prevailed, which
caused me to feel an involuntary stiudder.
Perceiving, just outside the gale, a rag
ged, dirty-faced boy, who was peering
curiously at me, I slowly retraced my
slvps-
• * Does Mrs. Lee live here ?’ I asked.
•Miss Lee? I, I dun know. Say,
Dick, who lives in this ere bouse?’ re
plied the boy, looking up with a saucy
grimace on his dirty face.
• Yes,’ said a voice, apparently issuing
from a hedge close by ; but immediately
the voice was followed by the apparition
of the. boy. who had been addressed as
Dick. \
• Yes, I know who lives there—just
nobody.’ And • laugh followed thisebu
lition of wit
‘ Look tier»,’ said I, dropping a small
coin in his hand. A comical leer came
over his face, and he said—
‘Oh I I see, you wanta to know ; well,'
folding his arma complacently, 'Miss Lee
has been hero and sold out this ere place,
and has gone to Boslin, or some other
place. That's all I know about it, mis
ter.'
‘But, Miss Agatha, where issile?' I
asked eagerly.
‘Ohi’ and he gave a shrill whistle,
‘Miss Aggie is the one ; I say, Bob, that's
a good 'un —come and enquire for the old
lady, when its pretty Aggie he wants to
see.’
I frowned, and somewhat subdued, he
went on.
• Well, this is how Mrs. Lee happened
to sell; her daughter Aggie gol murrini
to a rich old feller, who had bushels of
gold and diamonds, and brought Aggie
thousands of presents.’
‘ Married I Agatha married I’ I ex
claimed.
The boy looked up in surprise.
• Yes, she’s married.’
• I did not speak again, but like one in
a dream, walked back into the street,
for some timo I felt utterly bewildered;
the report I bad just heard, together with
the fact that our correspondence find so
suddenly censed, combined to indure me
to believe that Agatha Lee, who I hail
deemed as pure and good as an angel, had,
indeed deceived me. Still I determined
to think it all a mistake, till I learned the
trulli from some other source. With this
determination I stopped at the door of
one whose acquaintance I had made while
a teacher at N—
“Why, Mr. Rivers!’ was the sur
prised exclamation which greeted me.
' So yon have returned.’
A few moments were passed in the in
terchange of commonplace remarks ; and
(lien I asked,—‘And what of my old
iriends?’
An enumeration of the various changes
in Ilio village was made ; but I had no
interest in them, until the words fell on
my ear—‘Then there was Mrs. Lee and
Aggie—they arc gone. Aggie is married,
and they—Mrs. Lee, Aggie and Mr.
Waldron, I think the name is—have gone
away.
1 Mr. Rivers, I thought once that you
would lake Aggie, although she seemed
but a child—yet she Is married now to
one who must be quite as old as her
mother.’
‘ I cannot tell you, Allen, the anguish
and feeling of wretchedness which I then
experienced. I remained in N. but n
short time, and then returned to my west
ern home. I was, as you know, success
ful in business, and gained a competency ;
my uncle, hearing more favorable reports,
sent for me, and we wore reconciled. He
died a few years since, leaving mo heir to
all his wealth. My history from that pe
riod you know. I have lived here in my
•bachelor’s hall,’ escaping the snares of
managing mammas and their fascinating
daughters. I shall never forget her whom
I loved in my youth, and shall never en
ter into the chains of Hymen.’
Phillip Rivers threw himself back on
the sofa and lighted his cigar, watching
the wreathing smoke as he did so.
‘ Well, Rivers, I should never have
dreamed of such a romance in your life.
What would Mrs? Claire, who terms you
Ilio most inveterate bachelor living, say
to this?’
Rivers smiled.
• But, Phil,’ continued Allen, ‘have you
never heard anything of Agatha since
then f’
‘Xo; and until this night, I have not
for five years spoken her name.’
• Pardon me, Phil, but let me ask, do
you love her yehf
Philip arose tini paced t|ie floor for a
few moments ; his proud fece grew while,
and his voice trembled as he
answered—
• I will answer your question. I have
endeavored all these years to banish from
my heart one who has been unfaithful to
me; I have strove to think of her as the
wife of another, but despite of all, I still
see the hazel eyes of Agatha Lee, and
still her bird-like voice speaks to my
heart ; and with that voice never hushed,
I cun but love her even now. Yes, Char
ley, I loot her yet'
The last rays of the setting sun shone
in through the folds of the ridi curtains,
upon a large and well furnished room, in
which sat two ladies, both young, and one
beautiful. A well-titling dress of dark
cashmere displayed her tinely formed fig
ure; her brown hair escaped from the
comb which held in place the glossy
braids, now hung in half-formed ringlets
about the small white neck ; her eyes
were large, and in their expression tender;
the red lips were parted with a smile,
disclosing a row of pearly tcetli ; and the
hand toying with the tassel of her dress,
was small and delicate, while rings of
great value, encircling her fingers spoke
of the wealth of the owner. Her com
panion was a young girl *of apparently
about seventeen summers,—there was
nothing in her appearance to elicit a sec
ond glance.
‘Oh, Aggie,’ said she, suddenly, ‘are
you going to Mrs. De Vere’s party (o'
morrow night? They say it will be a
spendili attuir, and you know she has sent
you an invitation.’
‘lama stranger in the city you know,
I am acquainted with no one save Mrs.
De Vere, whom, for the two past sum
mers, I have met at Saratoga. I do not
think I shall go.’
•Not go! why, Aggie Waldron, I only
wish 1 had the chance; but ma has such
old fashioned notions! says I am too young
when here I am seventeen I’ and the
speaker sighed, as though she felt herself
quite aged. Ido wish I was going, Mrs.
De Vere always has such elegant parties.
Meg Harvey tells me all about them ; all
the ‘lions’ are there. There is young
Lanccy, whom Meg says is id love with
her-, Just think of it! she’s got red hair,
and rueh a nose. I used to meet him on
my way to school, and he would bow ; at
last we spoke together, and had quite a
flirtation till ma found it out, and ended
it Now to think of his being in love
with Meg Uervey !’ and she paused in
utter astonishment. *
• So that is the cause of your grdJt de
sire to go to Mrs. De Vere’s, is it, Lut
ale?’
‘Obi no, Aggie, not the only reason.
There Js another one 1 wish to see moro
than Neif Laticey. Now you just wait,
and I'll tell you all about him. He is a
bachelor of rich as Croesus, and
▼ery handsome, just my beau ideal ; has
black hair and eyes, and is as indifferent
to the ladies as possible, and they are all
dying for him, too; Annie Claire, Hertha
Wendell, and—well, all of them.’
* Indeed, Lizzie, he must be eery fasci
nating if they areali dying for him.’
* There, don’t laugh, Aggie, for it is
true. I wish you could see him. How
romantic it would l>e for you to fall in
lore—no, I forgot, you ncrer fall in lore.
I wonder why you don’t, Aggie? I have
not told you his name yet : it is a very
pretty name—Phillip Rivers—isn’t it,
Aggie? Goodness! how pale you are!
Are you faint!'and Lizzie Wells sprang
up, throwing over, in her agitation, the
aland covered with books.
‘No, no, Lizzie, it was only for a mo
ment, I am well again now ; please go on
with your description f was Agatha Wal
dron's reply.
‘ Well, you arc pale enhugh now ; are
you sure you are quite well again ?’
1 Ves, ture;' and the colorless lips
curled with a faint smile.
‘ I have told you all I know about this
Mr. Rivers, only that he is a lawyer, and
papa says a very talented one. Then there
is—there’s May Hervey at the door now ;
I must go, for she will tell me all about
Lancey, and I most hear. - He in love
with her, red-haired image ! Just think
of it, Aggie !' and the wild girl danced,
out of the room.
Agatha Waldron rose from her seat and
paced for a moment to and fro the car
peted Hour. Phillip Rivers unmarried !
What does it menni 1 Oh! if there has
been a mistake—if I was wrong and un
just when I deemed him false!' And
her voice grew tremulous ‘Rut no, it
cannot he. lie loves me no longer. 1
would I were again the happy child of
ten years since, for then he would love
me; and what is wealth to me now?
Only a mockery, while my heart still
mourns for the love which is mine no
longer. ‘ But I will go,’ she added, hasti
ly, * I will go and see him onco more ;’
and Iter lips closed firmly together.
* Well, Rivers, what do you think of
this assemblage of ‘fair women and brave
men ?' ’ Mrs. I)e Vere’s spacious rooms
were crowded by the wealth and fashion
of II ,and, before replying, Phillip
Rivers glanced around. * Take care, my
dear bachelor, do not allow your glances
to wander about in that way, lest Cupid
transfix you by an arrow from some of
the brilliant eyes of the fair maidens who
are here to-night.’
‘ I have no fear of that.’
* Do not overestimate your powers of
resistance. I prophecy you will not long
claim to be heart-whole. There is Miss.
Lynn, what do you think of her?’
‘ She is too cold and haughty.’
‘And Ada Claire?’
' Affects too much the sentimental.'
‘ What of her elder sister, Beatrice?’
‘She is 100 rude.’
‘ Disposed to cavil at all, I see. But
there is a new comer, a stranger in the
city, here to night, who is said to bear the
palm away from all. There she is, nearly
opposite us, dressed in a lavender silk,
the lady with dark hair and eyes.’
An exclamation from Phillip caused
his companion to pause. In the lady to
whom bis attention had been directed,
Phillip Rivers beheld Agatha Lee.
‘Who is she? what is her name?’ he
asked eagerly.
* What ! ’conquered so soon ?’ his
friend replied with a laugh. ‘The name
of her who has subdued the lion is Wal
dron—Agatha Waldron.’
Agatha Waldron! It was true, then,
that she had married another; and now
was she free, he horridly asked himself.
In his confusion he did nut notice that
she had withdrawn from the crowd
around ; but suddenly looking up, ho
perceived that she was gone ; and, scarce
ly believing but that he had been in a
dream, he walked into the conservatory,
thinking to he alone fur a moment As
he entered he saw, standing just before
him, she who had haunted him fur years.
Shu turned at the sound of his footsteps.
* Mrs. Waldron !’
‘Phillip—Mr. Rivers!' site said, turn
ing deathly white.
His voice was stern and cold ; hers
tremulous and tearful.
‘lt has been long since we have met,
Mrs. Waldron ; you have changed much
in that time.’
‘Yes, Mr. Rivers.’ Her tone was firm
er than before.
‘ls Mr. Waldron here to-night?' he
said, after a painful pause.
‘Mr. Waldron ! Then yon did no know
—you have not heard that he is dead?’
she said in surprise.
•Dead.’
* Yes, and my only friend, my dear
mother, also,, she answered, her eyes fill
ing with tears,
‘And your wife, Mr. Rivers, is she
here ?’
‘My wife !’ His face flushed. 'Do
you ask me that, Agatha Lee ? lamnntas
tickle as some arc. I have loved but
once, Aggie ; and when I heard of your
marriage—
‘ I am not married,’ she said, interrupt
ing him.
‘ Agatha !'
* I am not married, but I supposed that
you were, for fbu did nt answer my let
ters : and they said your uncle had left
you his fortune, and that you were too
proud to seek a penniless bride, and bad
married a wealthy beauty ; and 1 saw it
in the papers, too.’
‘My poor little Aggie.’ Phillip River's
voice grew very tender as he drew her
towards him. •' How have you suffered,
my darling ; it was a distant connection
of mine whose marriage you saw. But
how is it that you are called Agatha Wal
dron, and why was I told that you were
married? And my letters, why were
they never answered ?
'Because they were never received,
dear Phillip. And why I am called
Agatha Waldron I can tell you. It was
my mother whom Mr, Waldron married ;
and after their marriage be wished me to
become his daughter, and I have ever
since borne the name of Waldron. I re
member now that 1 heard a report about
the village that it was I who was to be
come Mrs- Waldron ; but deemed it too
rediculoua to obtain credence for a mo
ment, and took no pains to contradict it,
little dreaming that It would be the cause
of so much sorrow ; and a alight tremor
shook the form held so closely in Phillip
River’s arms. ‘ We—Mr. Waldron, ma
ma and I, removed from N—,snd I
wrote to you, informing you of the change
of our residence ; but to that letter I re
ceived no answer, and never heard from
you again until I saw the marriage of
Phillip Rivers in the paper, and report
said it was you ; then, Phillip, I tried to
forget you, but I have been ab Very
wretched—' and her lip jjoivered.
‘ Aggie, my darling, my 6wn betrothed
bride, bow bave you auffemd, and I deem
mured, regretfully. _ '
There was tto answer, but the brown
cur)» were nettled ciotte to hit heart
* Now, my dearest, it shall all end ; wt
will be happy yet Agatha, will yoa be
ar wire?’
Her anewer, however indlatlnct it was
roust have been satisfactory to bin, fee
he bent down and cor crea lip and brow
with kisses. What it was the reader may
judge, when we say scarce two weeks af
terwards the fashionable world was elec
trified by the announcement of the mar
riage of the wealthy old bach, Phillip
Rivers, to the heiress and belle, Agatha
Waldron. Various were the turroisingt
and commcfilS' Upon the occasion, lira
Claire—she bad throe marriageable daugh
ters—decided that, for her part, she
could not see bow Mr. Hirers ever fancied
that proud, stuck-up piece, Agatha Wal
dron ; while her daughters, one and all,
decided that they had always thought
Phillip Rivera a person of very peculiar
fancies. Lizzie Wells was in ccstaciea at
the idea of her favorite ‘Aggie’ subduing
the elegant Mr. Rivers ; and also at meet
ing at the wedding Ned Lancey, who
proved to her satisfaction that he was not
‘in love with that red-haired image—Meg
llervcy;’ and who, some years afterward,
demonstrated equally to her satisfaction,
that he was ‘in love' with Lizzie Wells,
by making her Mrs. Lancey. And now,
leaving untold the happiness which after
ward fully compensated for the sorrow
which had before been theirs, wo will
leave Phillip Rivers and hla lovely wife.
How a Dliiolallm of the Vain Mar
be Avoided.
lion. 11. J. Jewett, the Democratic can
didate fur Governor of Ohio at the recent
election, (whose letter of acceptance was
no generally read throughout the Northern
States with expressions of high approval,)
has written another, mainly an amplifica
tion or a fuller explanation of his first
fetter. We make the following extracts,
and request every one of our patrons to
read them : V
Zanesville, 0., Sept 18,1861.
T. H. Hodder, Esq., Marion, Ohio:
Dear Sir lam in receipt of yoor val
ued favor of the 18th instant, and regret
my inability to vn-it you and address the
Mass Meeting at the time designated. It
is gratifying to learn that the people of
your section of the Stale fnllv approdale
the perilous times upon which have
fallen, and regardless of minor considera
tions, are inquiiing how the dangers with
which our helovcJ country is threatened,
can bo most effectually and speedily avert
ed. If we would all thus inquire and act
in accordance with our honest convictions,
I can but believe the storm now portend
ing ruin to all our best interests w ould
soon be allayed.
It may well be said that the people of
the North are united in the determination
io support the Government and preserve
the Union. With some the object to be
accomplished is not very laudable, but
with the masses the object is pure and
single—" to pre-tent the Union for the
tale of the Union,” And the great ques
tion which we should all soberly and can
didlg consider is, how can this be done
with the least loss of life snd treasure, and
without a sacrifice of honor!
In my letter accepting the nomination
fur Governor, I endeavored to state briefly
and distinctly my convictions as lo our
duty in the premises, and the Uno of poli
cy which I thought ought to tie adopted.
In il I said what I now repeat, that “ the
great body of the people South ate loyal
to the Government, their sympathy is
with it, and for it, if the real nature of the
controversy was fairly before then, and
they were permitted to act in accordance
with their own feelings and Judgments.”
Entertaining the belief that the masses
of the South were honest, but deceived,
that their present hostile attitude toward
the Government was not because they pre
ferred any other form of government, or
had lost their sympathy for that of their
fathers, but because they bad been led to
believe that the people of the North had
adopted and cherished sentiments and feel
ings hostile to them and their interests,
and that their only security was in a gov
ernment to be administered by themselves,
I expressed the further opinion “ that it
was our duly, in justice to them as well as
to ourselves, for the sake of humanity, to
undeceive them, to invite them into a Na
tional Convention, where we might con
sult and advise together for our common
country, for our common good ; and by
wise measures provide against any and
every line of policy which, if persisted in,
must result in our common ruin."
In expressing these opinionsand indica
ting this line of policy, I made the dis
tinction between the people thus deceived
and overpowered,and those who had prao<
ticed the deception and were now leadMf
in the rebellion or revolution intended to
be produced by it, and as against these
and all others, insisted, and shall ever in
sist, that the Government must be main
tained and the Union preserved.
Mr. Ewing (the President of the Sth of
September Convention), a gentleman of
large experience and undoubted patriot
ism, concurs in opinion that the mass of
the people South are, in sentiment and
feeling, loyal to the Government; that their
present attitude is cither the result of re
straint or misrepresentation.
Col. Tod, the opposing candidate for
Governor, is still more emphatic in bear
ing testimony in lavor of this opinion.—
He says: “Believing that the masses of
the South still love the Union, and would,,
were they left untrammeled and untyread/
declare to-morrow their will fW ttS'contln
nance, 1 utterly repudiate the monstrous
and wicked plea and petition of the ring
leaders of Ibis conspiracy, and woutdorgna
for war eternally, until they are brought
to condign punishment, and their misgui
ded followers restored to reason,’ and
brought back to a recognition of the true
purposes and intentions of the Federal
Government, from which, by artful cun
ning and gross misrepresentations, they
have been misled and blinded."
We then agree that the masses are loyal;
we agree that they have been demised |
we agree that they have been led astray
by raisrepresentaUoo ; we agree that Up#
Government should be sustained ; the ar
my rendered efficient and vigorous te the
end, that the leaders in this wicked eoa.
spiraoy shall be brought to dnty and to
submission to the laws; but we disurie as
to bow thoee deceived, misled and hPadfd
masses of the South are to ho recalled to
tbs* Unionthey and from WMeh
representation." Cotonai led WoMmS
