the iiinof, or would have lookod up
on a belo me ho imjiolitirj, an well an ko
criminal, w ith any sort of complacency;
and every a.icli idea lina lougaitice been
diKuiiaM'd, whctivir entertained by
pci KnuH of ordinary judgment and can

imagined, imparls a sort of dignity to
tho unhappy event and elevated the as-btw-iuntioti
into a kind of martyrdom,
in tho common opprelu union of which
as w o well know, ploantiful uho lias been
made. All this prestige in completely
stripped awny by tho narrative of the
Viimx-ral, and the high-handed murder
of tbo President is reduced to tho level
of mi atrocious act of private venge

columns to tho details of thru transac

Booth told the President of their
long i si ablished friendship of bin Jovo
for the bravo adventurous spirit of
hia love for the young man who wiih
doing for his people in tho South, jiint
what a patiiot iu the North would have
done for tho ciwso und ptop'o dear to
I'l ehideiit Lincoln w as greatly moved
even to tears, and gave to Booth his
word of huncr as a man, that Beall
should he pardoned.
Then there was joy and happiness iu
that room. Booth kinsed tho hand of
tho President, and thanked him with
tearful eyes and choked voiee.even after
his friends had taken their huts to leave
tho presence of the Chief Magihlrato of
tho nation, who had promised, oud
whose pimniao was by Booth relied up
on. But alas for human promises J Beall
wan hung. The President did not keep
his word did not pardon him. Sew
ard tho infutiinos tyrant and Secretary
of State, whoso tinkling bell sent his
betters to B.tstiles, said it wouid not do
that Lincoln's duly to tho Republican
party demanded tho execution of Boull
to keep tinted the sentiment of the
North for such blood.
Lincoln said Beall must be pardoned
for ho bad promised it.
Seward said ho must not be pardon
ed, or there, would be strange reveal

And so thu I'le-ideiit weakened,
withheld his put don and poor Beali
suliereil for bis patriotic devotion with
Liu ii'V'.
When Booth leanu-d that Lincoln
bad lied to him, and not kept his
siiend piomiM:, his fiice lutindtothe
pa!!or of death, his lips became white,
his eyes nimtd to burst from their
sockets, and ho aw ore by tho Eternal

It is the duty of mothers to sustain
the i eve i sis of foilune. Freijiient and
j sudden as they havo bieu in our own
country, it is important that young
females should possess some employ
ment by which they might obtain a
livelihood, iu case they should bo re
duced to the necessity of supporting
theinselveu. Whou families are unex
pectedly reduced from allluence to pov
erty, how pitifully contemptiblo it is to
seo tho mother desponding and help
less and permitting her daughters to
embarrass those whom it iu their duty
to assist and cheer.
.1 havo lost my whole fortune, said a
merchant, as ho returnod ono evening
to his homo. We can no longer keep
our carriage, we must leave the large
house, tho children can no longor go to
expensive schools. Yesterday I was a
rich man; to-day thcro is nothing I
can call my own.
Dear husband, said tho wife, wo are
still rich in each other and our chil
dren. Money may pass away, but (iod
has given us n treasure in those active
hands and loving hearts.
Dear father 1 said tho children, do
not look so sober. Wo will help you
to get a living.
What can you do, poor things? said
tho father.
You shall sec, you shall seo, nuswer
od several cheerful voices, it id a pity
if wo have been to school for nothing
How can the father of eight children
be poor? We shall woik and make you
rich again.
I shall help, said the youngest girl,
hardly four years old. I will not have
any new things bought, and I will sell
my great doll.
The heart of the husband and father
which bad sunk within him like a stone
was lifted up. The sweet enthusiasm
cheered him, and his nightly prayer
was like a song of praise.
They left tho stately house. The
servants were dismissed. Pictures and
plate, rich carpets and furniture, wore
sold, and she who had been mistress
of tho mausioii shed no tears. Pay ev
ery debt, said she, let no one suffer

A young aud thriving merchant of
Saar-Louis was to havo been married ut
Sarr-Louis to a young lady from Seid

morning came the telegraphic order of

bridegroom a quarter of an hour before

like thousands of other meu of au
equally good position iu life, took bis
place as a private iu his regiment
the Foitielh llohoiizollcrn aud cheer
fully arranged with his bride that tho
marriage should take placo as soou as
his battallion should reach Sharbruck.
Ho would then go off to tho war, and
she would return, as his wife, to her
home. Tho bride camo yesterday, with"
her brother, to Sharbruck. I had the
pleasure of walking up with thorn, this
afternoon, to wuteh tho battalion, in
which tho bridegroom was to appear,
and pass from tho high road into tho
bivouac field. Tho bridegroom was
thero iu tho thick of the helmctod
stream, and rau from tho ranks and
kissed his brido with German fervor.

no sign of wondor, much less of deris
ion. Then the bridegroom ran on to
to the placo ho had left, and the bride
went to nn oflicor and begged a few
hours leave for tho bridegroom, that
they might get married. Tho officer, of
course, was only to glad to listen to
such a request from tho lips of such an
applicant, and escorted the brido to the
Colonel of tho regiment, from whom
leave had to bo obtained. We saw tho
brido with eyes more expressive than
ever, and a shadow of apprehension
over tho broad forhoad.not too German
for perfect beauty, repoating her re
quest to the Colonel, and winning from
bis lips of discipline tho gentlest of an
answer. The bridegroom was sent oil
on leave till midday to-morrow. Tho
marriage will be a few hours earlier. I
do not think that any Englishman could
have witnessed tho sceuo without tho
thought crossing him that it implied
such a society iu the urmy and such a
a noble simplicity of lifo as we in Eng
land have not yet learned even to as
pire to. Extraordin iry, how ouV
would it seem in England if it were
told that a gentleman serving as a pri
vate in the army run from tho ranks
and kissed his bride, aud then that tho
bride, went up before half the regiment
to tho officers and mado the same re
quest which I have recorded 1 Aud
what would bo the behavior of tho men
who saw it take placo? If it excited
admiration it would bo for the singu
larity and uuiibuality of the thing; in
Germany it was peifoctly natural, and
I mentiou it not because it was singu
lar, but tho reverse, because it caused
no surprise aud no embai rasment to any
one; because it shows what is the tone
of tho German army, in which men of
all ranks servo side by side, and how
siwplo and natural society is in com
parison to everything that we ate ac
customed to in Euglund. To assure you
that this is no romance, I give, with the
approbation of the bride and bride
groom, the names of both. Tho bride
is the Frauleiu Angelica Henng, born
in Scheieiz, in Central Germany; the
bridegroom, Herr A.igtist Brifz. born
iu Saar-Louis. N. Y. Tribune.
How Li-is Folks Mir Gnow Fat.

No doubt a large percentage of mur

Now Dr Lewis comes sensibly to the
rescue. Ho sends these skeletons to
bed betimes. They have rattled iu be

that w ill never do. They must I i 1 the

This fagging out of tho flesh results in

be a buxom maid. Now she has u tight

evening dress parades for young child

so, though Susio is scarcely iu her
teens, she bids fair to bo one of those
old skeletons that rattle in tho wind,
beforo she is twenty-two. All the
healthy, happy juices of life aro going
iu this folly, and she will bo old and
dry, and fretted away and good for
nothing very young. And the case is
the same with Mary and Alico, and Sa
rah Jane. Their fathers and mothers
ought to put them to bed for tho next
ton years, instead of of hiring hackney
coaches, iu ordering Tom to tako them
to evening dissipations at Bigbug's or
at Madame ShowolTs.

The Nathan Muitiuiii. Tho latest
disclosures in tho Nathan murder caso
are given by tho New York Sun. It is
now believed that tho authorities are
in possession of a cluo which may
eventually lead to tho detection of the
murderer. This clue, according to th
Sun, was obtained in a most singular
manner. On tho last day of tho Sara
toga races, Mr E. B. Hart, a re lativo of
tho murdered man, was in conversa
tion with Mr Sehenck, Jr., w ho resides
at Thirty-fourth street and Fifth
avenue. Tie murder was touched up
on, and Mr Hart was describing "dog,"
with which it was committed, when ho
was astonished nt hearing Mr Scheuck
remark, " I know that tool perfectly
well. It wus stolen from our house
last fall." The instrument was de
scribed so accurately that Mr Hart
requested Mr Sclienck to see the .nys
terious weapon of death. Ho did so,
and at once identified tho "dog" as one
stolen from his residence. Two of the
supposed robbers of Mr Schenck's
hou.-e are now in Sing Sing prison for
burglary. The third is now in custody
ou some petty charge. His name is
Eagan, and is the man with whom
yonng Kelly proved to have been inti
mate. Should the police be able to
trace the robbery of Mr Schenck's
house to these three men, or to any
one of them, they will be in a fair way
to unravel one of tho most perplexing
murder mysteries that New Yerk has
ever produced.
