J? ffM . a F^SL «aruest ***£*? handsome, but clever and intellectual; and Athol's senior by some ten years. Athol on the other hand, was superbly handsome, and his temper and disposition of tlie sunniest. A strong attachment existed between the brothers, Chetwynd regarding Athol with an almost paternal love and care, and Athol looking up to Chetwynd with well nigh filial respect and confl dence. They had watched Irene grow np from a pert school-girl, who called them Chet wynd and Athol, into the finished young lady, who preferred to use the more re served "Mr." They rode out wilh her, they took her on the river, they played croquet with her in the summerevenings; and billiards and bagatelle in the winter. But the time had come when joint com panionshlp with Irene was no loDger pos sible—a jealousy of each other crept in between them. The young lady had always a laughing word or merry sally wheiewilh to greet Athol, while for Chetwynd she had only a shy smile and blush, and a grave word Influenced by these signs, he believed Atliol was Irene's most favored suitor, and he generously and unselfishly deter miued to bury his love deeper than ever in his heart-—to stifle it if necessary, so that Athol might never discover he had a rival in his brother; and he further de tsrmined be would help forward his in terests by every means in his power, even if he had a sacrifice more than his feelings in tbe attempt to secure his hap piness. For him there was but one Irene—all his love was lavished upon her; and hav ing been once poured forth, it could no more be regathered than water can after being spilt on the earth;—he would never love another. > IRENE. BY F. R. But thought his life might be lonely and desolate, there was no reason why Athol's should be, and he vowed to study Athol's wishes before his own. At any rate, Athol should speak first, and then One day he saw Athol after spending longer time than usual-over his toilet, go out quickly, and turn in at their neigh bor's gate, aud he knew the hour had come. He went and threw himself on the bench under the old oak on the lawn and battled with his pain. "How should he bear with his life when all the hope had gone out of it?" he asked himselt; and he indulged iu a long reverie as to ,what he should do when Athol and Irene were married,— how he would go abroad for a few years and when the pain he had felt should have become dulled by time, how he would retsrn, aud adapt himself to cir cumstances. He had got as far as this, when sud denly he heard a door closed and, a mo ment after, rapid footsteps went past him to the boat-house. "Athol," he cried, "are you going for a row?" but no answer came back. He went after him then, aud came up oa him sitting moodily, with folded arms on the boat's edge. Chetwynd sat down near him, and waited for the confidence which he knew would be presently given. "It is all over. Chetwynd." "What is Athol?" "The fool's paradise I've been living in so long. Irene does not care for me." Chetwynd's heart bounded. He might win her yet, he thought, but instantly re pressing it, laid his hand sympathizingly on Athol's shoulder. "Has she refused you. old ftllow?" "Yes, point blank. Looks upon me as a brother. As if that were a consolation!" he muttered, almost sulkily. "Neversavdie, old man! It is only »girls -No'; she'll say'Yes'if you ask her again." "Not freely. She means what she says —always." "Shall I try what my influence can do?"

If you accept him, he Shall have two-thirds of the lucome we derive from the business; the remainder will be sufficient for me, for I shall never marrv."

SOME DETAILS OF THE FLORIDA FRAUD —HOW DEMOCRATIC RETURNS WERE DEALT WITH. From the Cour for- Journal. The total vote of Florida, exclusive of Baker county, was 24,40(3 votes for the Hayes electors, and 24,201 votes for the Tilden electors. The returns from the four Baker county precincts gave 238 votes for the Tilden electors, and 143 for the Hayes electors. Add this result, which appeared on the face of the returns from Baber, to the vote of the rest of the State and the Tilden electors have a majority of 90. It was to do away with this fact that Zach Chandler used the telegraph vigorously last November, and was au thorized by Grant to send "troops and money" to »teams. The conspirators,by a fraudulent count and certificate, revers ed the Baker county returns so as to show a majority of 40 votes for Hayes in the aggréjjhle vote of the State. The in vestigation of the House committee Into this nefarious business reveals many in stances of rascality and daring jobs crime. For example, Andrew A. Allen, Sheriff of Baker county, under oath, told how the precinct returns were dealt with. Following is a portion of the testimony: tf—'What did you do then? A.—We just made the return, throwing away two precincts in the county. Q—What two precincts in the county did you throw away? A.—One was Dar by ville precinct, aud the other was Johns ville precinct. Q-—Which did you throw away first ? A.—The Jolinsville precinct. Q.—And then you threw away the Darbyvllle precinct? A.—Yes, sir. Q—Did you have any witnesses at all before you? A.—None at all. Q.—Did you have any anything before you except the returns? A-—No, sir. Q.—Why did you throw away Johns ville precinct? A.—We believed that there was some intimidation there—that there was one party prevented from vot BO of ing. Q—Did you have any evidence tothat effect? A.—No, sir; there was only his statement. Q.—Did you not have a particle of evi dence before you? A.—No, sir. Q.—You believed that one party had been intimidated and prevented from vot ing?, A.—Yes sir. Q_And therefore you threw out the Jolinsville precinct? A.—Yes sir. Q.—Was there any other reason for Q—No other reason was suggested but that was there? A.—No, sir. Q,—You next threw out the Darbyville precinct?. A.—-Yes sir. q— p or what reason did you do so? A.—We believed that there was some il , . , . them le ? al v< ï 8 ~. l , Dere ' If-—Did you have any evidence befare yon at ail? A.—Nor sir, Q.—Not a particle? A No sir. Q.—But you had an impression that some illegal votes were cast there. A.-— y es s j r . _ You had no nroof at all" A _Vn w- * on nau no proof at all. A—No sn - Q.—How many illegal votes did you have au impression weie cast there? A.— About seven, I think, as well As lean recollect. !,*/ V,, A, r . v.;'™, Q—Therefore you threw «ut the pre cinct without any evidence at all? A.— Yes air. . ffCÜI .'C sl'>'iti\C Q —Then yon made up the return*? A—Yes sir, Q—Who wrote those returfi*i > A. -1 did. Q.—You wrote them yourself? A.— Yes sir. Û.— And the Judge signed them? A.

A.— We had not. iUK Q.—Name the seven men who yon thought were illegal voters. A.—I caa not. Q. -Did the Judge give their najhés, or did be just tell you that there were seven there that he thought had no right to vote ? A.—He then told me that there were seven there that had no right tb vote. Q—Do you know when Green was ap pointed Justice of the Peace ? A_I do not. He was a of the election, know. Q —Do you know that he was not appointed until after the election « A. —No, sir. Q.—Did you have anything to do with procuring his appointment? A. —Not a thing; he was appointed be fore I knew it. ,Q.—The first time you ever knew him to be a Justice of the Peace was when you got him on the 13th to mave the canvass? A.—Yes, sir that U the first knowledge I had of his be ing a Justice of the Peace. This is a fair sample of the charac ter of the Republican charge of ,"Democratlo intimidation" not only ip Florida but inL ouisiaaa and South Carolina. To get rid of a few thou sand Democratic votes it was neces sary only for soma Republican tb say there must have been intimidation at auch and such a poll or there would have beep a Republican majority, and With no further evidence than the Republican wish a sufficient number of Democratic voIob was disfranchised to give Hayes a majority. It is very certain , that no decision of the Presi dential election, based on the positive exclusion of facts pertaining to a fair consideration of the case, will meet With popular approval.

Y*Sun. THE ARMY IN POLITICS. The closing hours of the Fortj f.urth Congress will pass into history as memorable for the vindication of the right of thé people's Representa tives to held the purse strings of the nation, and in the exercise of that tight to check Executive encroach ments. After a prolonged and anirry struggle over the Presidential question, which had seemingly divided the Democratic party during the laat days of the contest into two wings, they wert reunited in an instant and weld ed together in a solid mass when this great principle was assailed. Tbe Army bill repotted by the com mittee of the House contained two leading elemental First, a reduction of the force from twenty-five thou sand to seventeen thousand men; and secondly, a prohibition against the President using any pan of the money or the troops thus granted, in talning illegal governments in Sopth Carolina aad Louisiana- Twenty ; rears ago the Republicans, then a ma ; ority in tho House, tacked on a simi lar condition to the Army bill,making it applicable to Kansas. When free speech and free immigra tion into that Territory were to be de fended, the Republicans of that day, in tbe freshness of their youth and in their fidelity to the principle which called that party into existence, de manded that a Democratic President should not use the army to aid or abet in the extensiou of slavery. They were right then. Now, when it is proposed to curb the Executive and to defend the rights of the States against oppression, to protect liberty aud to put dawn tyranny and fraud, some of the same men and the same party frown corrupt, and loose, and deiner ized, turn around and renounce the very principle which gave them the only cairn to popular confidence and support. 8U8 Weather Report Washington, March 7,1 A.
