with a look' of mischieroni inquiry in her
roeiry black eyes. '

"Ahankvoni How generous 1"
"Seriously, Jennie, yon know as "well

"Yes, sir, I think yon made a similar
remark'.not Ions' since. Woman's sphere 1
That means she is to stay at home and ad-
admintster.the wants of some incarnation
oftnascnline indolence, and self-complacency,
like yonrself for instance," and
Jennie hastened from the room in answer
to a call from the nursery, while the
Judge turned for consolation to his ci
gar. Why Judge Compton was an old bach
elor, was often asked without a satisfac
tory answer ".being received, but that he
was in a confirmed state. of single bless
edness,' waa beyond a doubt. - Neverthe
less,. forty summers had rested lightly on
his head, for not a thread of silver gleam
ed in his long brown hair, and, his keen
eyes had a ray of mischief lnrkingr in
them, that betokened an unfailing fount
of good nature somewhere in-his capa
cious heart. 1
A gallant maji was the Judge, yet
withal, somewhat fastidious in his no
tions of female propriety, and dreading
a strongminded woman as if she were
the Arch Enemy in di-gniie. At pres
ent he was fatlicatiog for a few weeks at
the pleasant country home of one of , his
relative;, where he was gladly welcomed,
as he was everywhere.
The quiet of Maple Glen was broken
shortly after the above conversation, by
the advent of Miss Maude Latimer, a
ward of Mr. Smith, and who had just
"finished" at i, fashionable boarding
school. Though Cousin Jennie had
much to say to our gallant hero concern
ing her darling Maude, yet he paid very
little attention to it,, not having, in fact,
much opinion of the intellectual abilities
of "boarding school misses," as he was
pleased to call them. Still, as his cous
in's guest, he was prepared to receive her
with deferenoe. though it must be con
fessed that his anticipations were not of
the most pleasant nature. It was late
one evening when Maude arrived, and he
only caught a glimpse of a slight figure
in a sober gray travel ing t dress, which
was rapturously seized and embraced by
The next morning at the breakfast ta
ble, thev were ceremoniously introduced,
and.even the Judge's critical eye was at
fault, as he scanned the little, slsnder
form before him, the clear, dark gray
eyes, and the brown hair lying smoothly
above the high, white brow. No sickly
sentimentalism was there, bnt an earnest,
true soul had stamped its impress on ev
ery feature. It would be needless to state
all the incidents that marked the course
of the friendship that sprang up between
theJnilge and Maude. Had they met in
society, the result would have been yery
different, bnt being under the same roof,
thrown into constant companionship, and
with minds that perfectly accorded, they
could not but lie friends.
, Maude was well read in the best liter
atureof the day, and her cultivated mind
had grasped the grand thoughts oP'the
master spirits of the age, and made them
all her own. TheVelf furnished library

He made-a wry face. in apite of .himself,
and Maude,. looking up, caught him in

rather stiffly. r i ' "-
renlied he:

"I am sorry for yon, -my , friend, I
most say," said Maude, while hsr eyes
danced with, mirth to see how shocked
the Judge looked.
VAndyoiiare " Y
A Republican, and one of the black
est dye7 to be sure," returned she.
'(Wellevery one to their taste," and
Maude was alone again. (.
What Judge Compton's meditations
were it' would be difficult to say, but that
night ho dreamed that Mande was Pres
ident of the United States, and in the act
of givingther hand to Seward, who was
a big negro with intensified wooly hair
and thick lips, and Henry Ward Beech
er was performing the marriage ceremo
ny. He was rather shy of Maude for a
day or two, bnt gradually affairs return
ed to their old channel.
One qniet afternoon, Jennie and Maude
were alone together, the gentlemen being
absent on some business or other.' They
were seated on the, piazza with their sew
ing, n conversing on various feminine top
ics, or pausing to admire the quiet beau
ly of the blue sky gleaming throngh the
heavy foliage of the trees, or of the' gol
den bars of sunlight that lay npon the
thick green grass. At length Maude
made some remark that had a tjngo of
her political opinions in it, and Jennie
laughingly said :
"Now, Maude, what's the nse of talk
ing in'that kind of style ? You'll mar
ry a-.Democrat some day, and then what
will become of your politics ?"
"But I shan't though," said Maude,
energetically; "I wouldn't marryc-St.
Paul himself, if I knew he was a Demo
crat !"
"Why, Mande," said Jenny, her
black eyes enlarging themselves consid
erably ; "you really look as if you were
in earnest I What are your reasons, may
I ask ?"
"Because I 'should fear that a man
whose principles would allotv him to sup
port such a 8ystem-of fraud," oppression,
and wrong, would make a poor husband.?'
"Neverthelc-s, Twill , wager my pet
cameo pin against your new riding hat,
that you will not only receive an offer
from a Democrat, within t weeks, but
will accept ,him."
"I accept the bet, and refuse the man
in advance," said "Maude, bending over
her work that her companion might not
see the blushes'that burned on her cheek
and brow ; "so consider your cameo as
mine.!' , -. .
Wa ahall see." answered Jennie, gai
ly, as she turned to weleome her husband,
who enter d just then.
Judge Gorapton was to leave Maple
Glen in a. few days, and the final catas
u-onho came at last. It happened in this
wisp : The 'purple loom of the dying
twilight had just melted away in the sil-

Judge retnrued from a ride, and sat down

clear depths, and perhaps the mystic
beauty of the night had cast its spell over
them', for 60th were shut. At length she
looked up", but for an instant, -for'her
companion's eyes were fixed upon her
face with an intent gaze, as if he would
read her very soul, and sho looked down
as quickly, while'a faint flush crept over
hpr tvhita hrow. ' .

Johnson affirms, that it can. ,r . -,
Dougfas denies the right' of a State to
secede from'the Union.
Johnson maintains as a thing never to
be surrendered, this right.
Douglas says "it is difficult to con
csive how, any person, who believes that
the Constitution confers the right of pro

Donglas cannot understand, he cannot
satisfy hieCcoajctraee and his oath in' with
holding such protection. ,
-Douglas would coerce the Stats of
Georgia, for instance,,into submission in
the Union, should she attempt to secede

Johnson would die to maintain hsr

Sumner on Everett's Chances.
In his Worcester speech, Mr. Sumner
made the following humorous estimate
of Mr. Everett's chance for the Presiden
cy " ,
This party next turning to the Vice
Presidency, assumes, thirdly, that 'Mr.
Everett will be one of ths two highest
candidates for tha V-icw-Presidency, aad
fourthly, that Mr. Everett will be elec
ted by the Senate Vice President, and
then will become President, likeJobn
Tyler and Millard Fillmore notth7ough
the death of a President, bnt through the
double failure by the people and by ths
House. Such is the calculation by which
this.band of professed conservatives seek
to 'give repose to the country. Permit
me to say that it is only equaled by the
extravagance of Mrs. Toodles, in the
farce, whoso passion was to purchase an
cient articles of furniture at auction, un
der the idea that they might some day
be useful. Once, to-'the amazement of
her husband, she brought home a brass
door plate with ther,name'of Thompson
spelled with a P. "But what is this
for?" he demanded. "Why," said
Mrs. .Toodles, with a logic worthy of the
Bell party, "though we have been mar
ried many years without children, it" is
possible my dear that we might have a
child ; that child may be a daughter, and
may live to the age of maturity, and she
may marr a man of the name of Thomp
son spelled with a P. Then' How handy
it will be to have this door plate in the
house;!" I doubt if-any person really
familiar with affairs can consider this
nomination for the Vice JPresideney. of
brassdoor plate with the nSWof Thomp
son spelled with a P., pickedt up at an
auction room.- But then-in certain pos
sible contingencies, how' handy it must
be to have it in the .house 1

Honert Old Abe on the Glittering Gen
eralities of the Declaration of Inde
pendence. The following 'eloquent trihnts to the
Declaration of Independence is taken
from one of the ssscches of the Hon.
Abraham Lincoln, made during his ex
citing and gallant contest ror tne senator
ship in 1858 :
These communities (the thirteen colo
nies ) by their representatives in oia in
dependence Hall; 'said to ths world of
men : ."We hold these troths to be self-
Mdant.'that-otl'Taea are born equal ; that
they are endowed by their Creator with
certain inalienable rights ; that among
these are life,.liberty, and the pursuit of
happiness.". This was their majestic in
terpretation of the economy of the uni
verse. This was their lofty snd wise and
noble understanding of the justice of the
Creator to His creatnrss. Yes, gentle
men, tb'aU'His creatures, to the whole
great family of man. In their enlighten
ed belief, nothing stsmped with the di
vine lmsge and likeness was sent into the
world to be trodden on, snd degraded,
aad imbrutsd by its fellows. They gras
ped not only the race of men then living,
but they reached forward snd seized np
on the furthest posterity. They created
a beacon to guide their children and their
children's children, and the countless my
risds who should inhabit the earth in
other ages. Wise statesmen as they were,
tbay knew the tendency ol prosperity to
breed tyrants, and so they estallsbed'these
great self-evident troths, that when in
the distant latnre.aome man, some tac
tion, some interest shonldsetnp the doc
trine thst noBS but neb men, or none
bnt white rasa, or sons bnt Anglo-Sax
on white man. were entitled to life, liber
erty, and ttie'pursui. of happiness, tbsif
posterity might look np again" to ths
Declaration oi independence, ana take

Ths first role provided that in 'case so
candidate ahonld hava a majority of tba
electoral votes, ths House would forth-,
with return to their own chamber, and
immediately proceeded to a ballot," "aad'
in case npon the first ballot thsrs ahall
not appear to be a majority of the States
in favor or one of them, in such cms tba
House shall continue to ballot for a Pres
ident, without interraption by other b'osi-"
ness, nntu it shall appear that a rrart-
dent is duly chosen." Fourth "After
commencing the ballotting for President,,
the House shell not adjourn nntil a choice
be made." Fifth "The doors of tba'
House" shall bs closed daring the bal
lotting, except against the officers of th"
House." R
- On the 11th tha Senate and Hoaaa f
Representatives met, snd tha alesjtecal'

for Burr, and 'two were divided. .Tba
