Nearly all the children had departed;
amid the joyful ihquts and .jingling, ol

alone, 'until. a rich, boyish voce otartled
iierhy saying "No one goes your way,
Alice, lo they ?"
"Noj I gu'es not, Btn,", she, replied,
in her fine, liinl like tone.
" ""Well, the wiuiv is too deep for you

"Oh, no 1 am too heavy to be carried

"Heavy ! no, you're just like thixtle

without being' at all fatigued," and lie
tossed the little girl in his arm. '
"No, no, let me go ; the boys will
laugh at yon, Ben," and she struggled.'
"What do I care T they may laugh at
Ben Bolt as tnnrh as they like." and the
hrave'.boy drew lnmelf up proudly, and
pushed the chestnut curls from his broad,
fair forehead : "but I did not mean. to
frijthten yon, Alice.". ha continued, - an
he saw bow the Utile girl trembled. ,
So. she put on her bonnet and cloak,
and 'Ben took her in hia arms as it she

He did remember, and with one pas
sionate burst of grief, he pressed the lit

boy sobbed the farewell; be could find
no words for. "
But five years are not always a life
time. True, it was. snch to the. qniet,
thoughtful Charlie Allan, whose; large,
dark eyea hail stolen brilliancy, from hia
books.; and the laughing little 'Bel
Archer both were laid to. sleep in tbsold
church yard, where night-stara shone on
their graves. Olhea.went on .tojseek a
future in tha gny world, and ,some.fgrew
into miniature men and women by their
own sweet firesides; but Alice May
seemed still a child. ,Yes, she was tall
er, and her (.light furm more gracefully
developed.; but there was the ssme angel
looking throngh her eyed as had watched
therein the olden, .days. She staid at
home now, to assist her mother in sewing
their chief support ; but she was the
same shy. sweet Alice, Ben Bolt had car
ried throngh the snow.
Ben Bolt had come back. How strange
that flve.years should have passed so
quickly; and Ktrange'r" aill! that this tall,
handsome sailor, whose voice was so full
and rich, should be Ben Bolt. Kate
Ashley was not thinking of the sweet
Sabbath rest, as the chime of the church
b II floated throngh the village ; there
she stood oeiore ner mirror, arranKiiiK
her shining cnrls, and fastening her dain
ty bonnet, with itsrwhite rihbons and
dropping blue bells, thinking if she could
not fascinate Ben with her sparkling eyes.
it wonld he delightful to have his chief
attention during his stay.
He thought she did look very beauti
ful, as he sat, before service, looking on
the olden faces but there was a fairer
one than hers he fancied, as he saw the
sweet face' of Alice May. with the half
cloned eyes, "and long, golden' edged lash
c., shadowing thepale cheek. He ear
ried in his bosom a cnrl like the one nes
tling so softly by her temple, and it was
a talisman, keeping1 him from the8 en
chantment of "other eye.
When the service wajrclosed. Ben was
thronged about by old familiar faces
they had so much to say; to many thing
to speak of, so much joy to express at hi
aafo return, that it well nigh bewildered
him. It was -vervr-nleasant to be so
warmly welcomed by old friends, delight?

They were not wanting who wondered
at Bon Bolt'a choice, and thought,, it
strange he should take" Alice May in pref
erence to thefairestand wealthiest. Some
there were who held their heads- loftily
when they passed her. but her heart was
awny -oh the blue water's, and she heeded
it iVot.1 !'! - - - -
How she: watched the days in their pass
ing. She noted how the Summer waned
how, the field of waving grain grew
golden in tlje sunlight she heard the
glad'voiceof'the'reapsra'; and"' when the
leave were falling, the meny children
went, nut gathering in the, woods ; then
the noiseless snow fell, and lay on the hill
side. as in the olden days, until, the geni
al spring-tide melted it away, and the
violets and'harebells dotted the fields so
passed a year.
She was growing fairer and more beau
tiful too brilliant for anything earthly.
Ohcesheknelt-'at tho altar in the little
church, and listeneil.tb the words uniting
her withfthe Saviour's redeemed on earth,
hut it was. only an, outward form, for her
hcait had long been in keeping of angels.
Again she watched 'the waning of. the
Summer days, and- when the'soft wind
swept, over the .silvery rye ' fields, she
thought of the ocean, afar,, with iu broad
waves. All through the Winter days
she grew more spiritual in her :i beauty,
and the slender white 'bands" were, often
folded on her breast, as she prayed for
those who would soon be left desolate ;
for she knew she was dying. . .
It did not startle her;sho had felt long
avto, that the fair green earth wonld hold
her "pulseless heart,. ere it had, left the
cloister of girlhopd.a Life was sweet and
beautiful, yet in her sinlessness. death

false. Yon have worn very good clothes,

and you have received some of onr choi

visited institntions which you didn't

with some of the best dressed old ladies
to be fonnd in America. You like to
dance, bnt you don't dance the "Lancera"
very well. Still, yon are a pretty clever

his Cromwell," and John ('. Breckin

The Breckinridge party have no plat

will lend them as many as there are trait

their necks.
It is not enonghthat we beat tha Dis

must bury it beneath a majority as tall

who lived six days after her neck was
broken. If the Breckinridge party is as
tenacious of life as Mrs. Linn was, it will
probably live until nsxt Monday.
The people of the South all protost ve
hemently that they, will tolerate no modi

law. Yet do not the advocates of Brack

Broderick Avenged.
The Philadelphia Press contains an el
oquent and bitter article under this head,
which concludes as follows :
And now, almost on the very anniver
sary of theday that Broderick fell, CaN
iforniaand Oregon have, spoken their
verdict in favor of the principles of which
he was the exponent, and against his foes.
The election of two Broderick United
States Senators from Oregon, which took
place on the 2d of September last, is that
result which tells how fondly and how
sacredly the people of that State cherish
ed the memory, and remembered the vir
tus of the dead patriot. Colonel E. D.
Baker, the new Republican Senator, is
tho same who pronounced the splendid
enlogy over the remains of Broderick in
the city of San Francisco ; the same who,
on that sad occasion, boldly arraigned
the men wbo murdered Broderick ; tha
same . who drew tears from . the thou
sands who came to participate in tuoe
memorable obsequies. When Baker
closed his mournful task, he went forth"
to make good his declarations. Leaving
California, which at that poriod waa
wholly bound in the fetters of ths Ad
ministration, he passed over to Oregon,
and there, against almost hopeles odds,
raised the flag of popnlar sovereignty,
and, with the aid of the Democrats who '
believed in that doctrine, canvassed and
revolutionized public sentiment.,, His
colleague is a Democrat of the Broderick
school. Col. Baker will occupy' the va-'
cant seat from' Oregon, at tho opening of
the short session of the present Congres;
and will serve .for five. year, and i, Mr...
Nesmith will be the" successor of Joe '
Lane, the Secession candidate for Vioe '
President, after the 4th of Marsh, 1861,
and will serve for six years.
How Joe Lane will feel in view of this
demonstration we cannot anticipate.
The blow upon him is as ssvere as the
iriuuis to a uuuio principle is great, it
was Lane that commanded tha Oregon'
lelegation to "go ont" of the Charleston
Convention. It was Lane that accepted
ths nomination of the Soceders at Balti
more ; and it is Lane who now leads one
wing of that combination which seeks
the defeat of the Democratic party, while
threatening to overthrow tha Union of
these States. Will not General' L'.ne'
panse before the warning voice of Ore
gon ? Will he not call back his cohorts
in their double warefare upon Douglas -and

tion has come at an opportune moment
just t to weeks before the' Presidential
election. Will he heed it? ' -' '
