He went up the steps of his friend's house and rangUe bell "he" was Benjamin Cuthbert and before it was answered he looked through the French windows no one could help it who stood on the porch and saw within a lady and four children. The lady sat in the big armchair read ing a story-book. One little one perched upon her knee. A girl sat sewing beside the table, Snaking a doll's dress, but listening to the reading all the same. One of the boys was mak ing a "Hy-trap" of paper the other cutting puper-boats. "What a happy man Dick is," he said to himself, "with such a family about hiiu. He lias stayed at home and become a solid man, while I have been roaming over the world. What a pretty woman she is too" "Well, sir?" said a voice at his el bow. The door had opened as he stood staring; and rather abashed, ho added to a hasty, "Oh, beg pardon," the en quiry: "is Mr. Fielding at home?" The girl shook her head. "No, he ain't," she said. "We ex pect him home to-morrow. But if vou would like to .sec Mrs. Fielding "Take her my card," said Cuthbert, offering one. "She's just in there," said the girl. "I know," said Cuthbert. "And there ain't no light in the par lor," said the girl. "Oh, I'll stay here," said Cuthbert. The girl vanished. The next moment the lady appeared at the door with the book in her hand. "Mr. Cuthbert," she said, "dear me! Have you been left out here? I sup pose Ann believed herself to be doing right, one does the strangest things under that impression. Walk in. Mr. Fielding will be so sorry he was away; but he will be back some time lo-nior-row, aud your room is ready for you. Dick talks so much of you that you seem quite an old friend." "It is very kind of you to say so," said Cuthbert. And he entered, and in the space of ten minutes felt as if he had known that little woman as many years. She made him regret, as no woman ever had before, that he had never fallen in ovc and married. A good supper was served shortly, and when the children began to fall asleep about the room, Mrs. Fielding gathered them together, and with a laugh, bade him good-night. It is awfully stupid for you that Mr. Fielding is not home," she said. "Your room is the one just at the head of the stairs. If you need anything, ring, lilack Sam won't go to bed for hours, lie sits in the kitchen and plays the lid dlc uearly all night. Pleasant dreams." He arose and bowed, aud said some thing polite, and went up to his room very shortly afterward. It was com fortable and pretty, but he did not sleep very w t il : Ue tossed about and found himself creaming all sorts of strange things-; he heard one of the young Fieldings cry a great deal, and wondered if it was sick. In the morning, going downstairs, he met a stout old lady in an apron, carrying a bowl and plate on a tray. She gave him good-morning. 'Is the child sick" he asked. Law, no, sir!" "I heard it cry so much," he added in apology. "They always do, bless 'em!" said she, "Always!" "I'd put a stop to it, I think," said Cuthbert to himself, "if I was Dick. A strapping little boy like that!" And he did not envy hia friend's mat rimonial joys so deeply. But after, when they were all at table again, those doubts vanished. He had been very loug a stranger to any home, and for years together had sojourned where women scarcely came. He had matte money; but what had he not missed? He told his adventures in the mines and at far-oil' ranches to the children, who thought it as interesting as a fairy tale. Iudecd it was. And Mrs. Field ing listened, and when the child upon her knee cried, "Oh, isn't it splendid?" she nodded at him and smiled at the narrator. Later on in the day a letter came. It was from Fieldiug. "He writes," said Mrs. Fielding, "that he may be detained by business, but vou must stav until he comes. We'll go and see the falls to-day, and there's an old glen and cavern close by, and au old house that Washington stayed overnight in, with the original old fur niture aud family miniatures by Mal loue, aud all the rest of it. It is all wortit driving to see." He agreed to everything, of course, and he enjoyed himself very much so much that it surprised him. A little woman who did not talk a great deal, and four children. He should have thought it would be very dull. On the contrary, he was utterly happy. That night that dreadful youngest boy shrieked more shrilly than ever, and somebody cried: "There, there, a tootsy!" "I'd cut a small switch, I think, if it's not a case for chulera medicine," Mr. Cuthbert remarked to himself. And he looked at the healthy smiling child in astonishment next day, and felt inclined to ask questions. He was de terred by the fear of seeming fussy. The old woman in the apron often crossed his path, and always with something to cat on a tray, aud he was sure he heard a voice ho did cot know occasionally. There was a sort of encbantod castle mystery about all this, and be might have fathomed it had his mind not been occupied by a trouble of his own. It came upon him one moonlight eve ning as he lay lazily in the hammock betsveeu two pine-trees, with the small Albert Edward perched upon his chest. -1 yike you," said the talkative child. "Do you yike me?" "if you didn't cry allniht I would," said Mr. cuthbert. "I don't cry," sail Albert Edward. "Don't you?" said the gentleman. "Well, then I like you." "Do you yike Phiwip?" asked Albert Edward, "and Neddie and Kittie?" "Yes, indeed." "Do you yike Nurse Smiff?" "Is iurse Smith the stout lady with the tray of eatables?" "Yes," said the boy. Oh, I adore her!" said Cuthbert Why?" asked Cuthbert. "She won't let me hug my moiier'" 'Why not?" asked Cuthbert. "1 don't know," said Albert uward. "Do you love my inosier?" "Yes, 7 said Cuthbert. Then suddenly he started to his feet, sick at heart. The truth fli-jhe.1 upon him. He knew why he was so happy at that sim ple home. He loved his friend's wife. The fecliug had come to him. He had had no thought it could be. He had done nothing a man should not du. He could no more help it than he could have helped a sudden attack of illness, or a lightning stroke: but it was true. It was true, he loved her; and this was the lirst love of his life, aud love at that, had come to hiiu when he was nearly forty, a stronger, deeper, and, as he felt, a more enduring passion than he could have harbored in his heart at oue-nnd-tvventy. His friend's wile, a virtuous matron, sitting amongst her children, uncon scious of his thoughts. Well, at least he was only a pitiable wretch. He had said nothing, done nothing, to show it. He had not suspected himself until this moment, but had only thought life sweeter than it had ever been before. Oh, so much sweeter! And now he would do the only thing a gentleman and a man of honor could do. s He would leave the dangerous spot. He would rise with the dawn, and before he could see that sweet woman again, would quit the house. He sat down and wrote this little note that night, with a trembling hand, and eyes that scarcely saw the paper: Mas. FiKMMNt;. l)K.r. Madam. .Sud den news has reached me which compels me to leave at once. X cannot even wait to thank you for your kind hospitality, (live j my love to my dear old menu, whom 1 hope to see soon. Yours truly, liKN.IAMl.N ( 1-THBKRT." This he enveloped, sealed, and gave to lilack .Sam, scraping his fiddle iu the kitchen. He did not sleep much that night. Albert Edward cried terrifically with long cat-like .squalls, and choking soKs, and his light drew a number of curious winged things into his room that buxxed about, and crackled the news paper, aud tickled in the surbasc, and rustled in the curtains. At daybreak, un refreshed and very miserable, he took his portmanteau in his baud aud shut the door behind him. "(iood-bye, dear woman," he said sadly, "t iood-bye forever." He looked at a certain window as he spoke it was quite the wrong room; but that was not the only mistake he had made aud then walked to the station, accumulating alternate layers of dust aud mud ou his boots, and, breakfastlcss and forlorn, took the ear liest morning train cityward. He had been trying to forget his folly for two good weeks, when one morning somebody asked for him, aud that somebody proved to be no other than his old friend, Richard Fieldiug. Hands clasped and kind words passed, and then Fielding cried in his own hearty honest way. "But why didn't yon stay at my house, Ben? I should have been so flad. Catherine says it was too stupid, ly wife says the baby kept you awake. It's a frightful little squallcr. Splen did child, though; weighs fourteen pounds. Nurse Smith says you asked after it so kindly when you met her on the stairs, you thought it must be sick. Quite unfortunate, your coining when 1 was away, and my wife couldn't en tertain you." "Mrs. Fielding was most kind," said Cuthbert. "Oil, yes, Catherine would do her best, but my wife is different," said Mr. F'ieldiug, spreading his hands abroad. "My wife has aplomb, and all that the life of every company she is in good talker. Now Catherine, nice do mestic little woman, is very quiet a little serious and silent eh?" "Who is Catherine?" asked Cuthbert with wildly beating heart. "Catherine was Mrs. Jefferson Field ing. You remember poor Jell' ? She's his widow. She's lived with ns for years. The children adore her. Y'ou know she say-j she never said anything about the new baby; didn't like to. 1 wonder why not? But Nurse Smith says you must have known, for you asked after it; aud its shriek no baby over four weeks shrieks like that. Of course you know, Cuthbert." "1 don't know. I'm au old bachelor. I laid it all to Albert Edward," said Mr. Cuthbert. "I made several mis takes iu your family. I couldn't think why Nurse Smith carried so many trays of provisions upstairs, and I I thought your brother's widow was your wife." "Poor little, sister-in-law!" said Fielding. "Yes, yes, a sice body, but not Amelia Jane. She is quite another person." "Thank heaven!" gasped Cuthbert. "I see how it is," thought Fielding. "Catherine has been prim and dull, or offended him somehow. Come down with me. Amelia Jane is up now and wants you to see baby," said Fielding. Cuthbert went. All the way along he sang a song of rejoicing to himself. He had not fallen in love with F'ielding's wife; he had nothing to be ashamed of. There was no harm in adoring Jefferson's widow. Staudiug at the railway-station one day "To think," said Mrs. Richard Fieldiug, "how things come about. Who would have dreamt that your friend was coming here to marry Cath erine. Well, it's a good match for both. I'm delighted." "So am I," said the husband. Then they waved their kerchiefs to the de parting bride and bridegroom, and went home together. . A party of newspaper correspondents recently met in Loudon and were giv ing their experiences of the drinks to be got in the various parts.of the world. One told of a famous concoction pre pared in Italy; another spoke of the drinks of Calilornia; another of Meso potamia, Australia, etc. The last man to speak said that at a supper in Russia he once got a drink consisting of a pint of champagne and a pint of brandy hot, which was drunk with a toast to the guest of the evening- "Well?" said a listener. "Oh. after that you were put to bed; there was nothing felse to do that evening," was the re "joinder. Liawycr and Client.

They will probably de mur and delay, and hem and haw, aud procrastinate, till tin ally they will get out of it some way. Still, I do not wish to throw cold water on your enter prise. If the other capitalists look favorably on tho plan, 1 will cheerfully co-operate with them. You go and see what you can do with Mr. Yauderbilt, and then come to me. You go on at some length to tell me how the most of the wealth is in the hands of a few men, and "then you at tack those men and refer to them in a way that makes my blood run cold.

There is a gro:;t deal of character in tho mustache. As the form of tho up per lip and in tho regions about it ha3 larircly to deal with tho feelings, pride, self-reliance, manliness, vanity, and other qualities that give self-control, the mutaohe is more particularly con nected with the expression of those qualities or the reverse. When the mustache is ragged and, as it wore, fir ing hither and thither, there is a lack of proper self-control. When it is straight and orderly, the reverse is the case, other things, of course, taken in to account. It there is a tendency to curl at the outer ends of the mustache, there is a tendency to ambition, vanity, or display. When the curl turns up ward there is geniality, combined with a love of approbation; when the incli nation is downward there is a more sedate turn of mind not unaccompanied with gloom. The reverse quality is well indicated by tho common portraits of Shakspeare. who was as much noted for cheerfulness and geniality in life as those qualities are manifested in his writings. It is worthy of remark that good-natured men will, in playing with the musta J'e, invariably give it an np ward inclination, whereas cress-grained and moro: Ken will pull it gUiquelj 4mwr& Imitation Grandfather Cloc ks. i The real grandfather clocks are stiil much sought after, not only by the nouvean riche, but by those whose aristocratic ancestors failed to hand dowji the tall timepiece which stood in their hallways in the days of yore. The word real is used advisedly, for the de mand for these old-fashioned timepieces has given rise to the manufacture of imitation grandfather clocks. A year or two ago some were brought to this market from the New Eugland states, but at present. Baltimore is the only place where the hiatal ion clocks are manufactured and sold as genuine. Mauy of onr largest jewelers, however, are making clocks the cases of which are constructed of mahogany, walnut, rosewood, and cherry iu imitation of the ancient timepieces, but these are invariably sold for just what they are. Indeed, the fact is that it has been found impossible to build an imitation grandfather's clock so that the decep tion could not be detected by experts, the defects being found in small de tails. In New England a century ago a large number of these clocks were made, the works being constructed out of wood, and while they are said to have been excellent timekeepers in their day, such of them as are in existence now have long since outlived their use fulness, except as ornaments or curios ities. The real antique grandfather clocks, with metal works, are dated from 1790 to 1810. The style known as the "Dutchman" represents by far the finest of these antique clocks. These were made in Holland and some of them that are still in existence are dat ed as far back as 1700. Many of them are of exceedingly fine and intricate workmanship, chiming old Dutch airs, striking the hours and quarters, and showing the phases of the moon's cal endar. They are perfect timekeepers and are worth from $400 to 1,000 each. Early in the eighteenth century En gland also manufactured similar clocks and quite a number of them were in cased in frames by Chippendale, the famous cabiuet-makcr of a century and a half ago, and those now command fancy figures. A clock made for a London iirni, which is incased in a Chippendale case of rare beauty, but simple in design, is now exhibited in an establishment on Union Square. In addition to keeping correct time, it shows the motion of the planets, the caleudar, many astronomical data, and plavs thirteen tunes. It is valued at 2,200. "Is it possible," asked the reporter of an expert in the business, "that the clock of the future will run perpetually, being so constructed hatthe changes of the temperature between night aud day will wind it up?" "No doubt that such clocks will Ie manufactured, as it is perfectly feasible to construct one to be run not only by changes in the temperature, but by oth er situple forces, such, for instance, as the draught from a chimney. Clocks can be also constructed to run for an almost indefinite period without being wound up by extreme delicacy in man ufacturing their works." "Do 50U think that clocks of this character will ever come into general use?"

Duriug the French conquest of Al geria negotiatiuus i..r peace were en tered upon Willi the sheiks of certain Arab tribes, aud a meeting for the set tlement of terms was armued to take place at the French head-quarters. The French officers received tneir guests of the desert with great hospitality, aud a banquet was given iu their honor. At this the utmost splendor was unfolded in order to dazzle their eyes and capti vate their simple minds. At its con clusion an adjournment to a large halt was proposed. Here M. Houdin, the celebrated conjuror, who accoiupauied the F'rench forces was to give them an exhibition of his skill, which to them seemed supernatural. They stared in open-mouthed wonder at all the tricks that were performed, and a feeling of awe crept over them as they saw mys terious appearings aud disappearings of various objects. But the greatest marvel to them was the apparent man ufacture of cauuon-balls. The con jurer passed around among them a high hat. This they examined very care fully, but without being able to discov er anything unusual in either its make or appearance. When it was returned to him, Mr. Hondin placed it on the floor in the middle of the stage in full view of his audience. He then pro ceeded to take from that hat cannon balls apparently without number, and rolled them across the floor into the wiugs. This terminated the perform ance. The chiefs consulted among themselves, and came to 'the conclu sion that it was useless to oppose an army that could turn out its ammuni tion iu so easy a manner. They there fore signed the required treaty, and de parted to tell their friends in the desert of the wonderful power of the in vaders. Editor's Drawer, in Harper's Magazine for May. A Good Scheme. "I tell you what it is," said Tom Hardup to his friend Binks, "it Las come to this. I must have a new suit of clothes. See how seedy I am get ting! Now, my boy, 1 have hit upon a plan that I think cannot fail to an swer." "What is it?" said Binks, looking some . hat askance at poor Tom. "AVell, it is simply this: You've got a 20 piece in your pocket, 1 know. Now, just lend it to me for ten min utes. I intend to go to 's place, where I used to have credit, but, con found it, I look such a wreck now, I don't like to ask it. A few minutes after I enter the store yon stroll iu and say: 'Hello, Tom, old chap, can you let me have 2J for a day or two?' I'll say certainly, and hand you over the coin you lend me. That little transaction will at once substantiate my credit, and I shall be able to ar range matters satisfactorily with the tiilor." Binks wa3 a cautious man, but he could see no harm or risk in thus helping his impecunious friend along. Accordingly Tom went into the tailor's shop and was busily en gaged selecting some material, when Binks sauntered in. "Hello, Tom!" said Binks, in a loud tone "you're just the man I've been looking for. Can vou loan me $20 for a week or so?" Txu turned from the cloth and re plied: "Awfully sorry, old boy, but 'pon my word 1 have not more than a dollar or so about me." Bink's face grew visibly longer He winked and nndged Tom. whispering: "Confound it. man. hand over the coin." But Tom was obdurate. At last Binks grew tired of the game, and stood out on Montgomery street to wait for Tom. Tom, however, went out of a sido door. There will be war when these two meet again.

M, Culloch. in a recent issue of the New Orleans Times-Democrat, say the present is perhaps the lit moment . to make public the following statement. In the year 1S07 the undersigned spent an evening with the late John W. Gar rett, Esq., then President of the Balti more and Ohio Railroad, who made the following communication: After the assassination of Mx. Lin coln the Cabiuet met iu the Treasury Department and passed a resolution to arrest and try by military commission the leading men of the Vmfederacy.be giuning with such as Messrs. Davis. General R. H Lee, and others, and meaning thereby to strike terror into the hearts of the Southern people; sus picion of complicity in that crime be ing the ground for such intended trials. : I hey concluded that to carry their resolution into etlect, Ueneral tyrant must give the requisite orders. Tired of war he was seeking repose on tha banks of the Delaware. He was,there fore, telegraphed to come immediately to Washington, and the railroads wer ordered to bring him without deten tion. . - ' Mr. Garrett was at the moment in Washington, and was instructed by Mr. Stanton to go forthwith to Balti more, in a single express car, there to meet General Grant and bring him to Washington as quickly as possible. Ha was also TOI.l BY MR. STANTOX "( to inform General Grant of the resolu tion passed, which he was expected to execute, and that the Cabinet would be in permanent session until his arriv al. ' When the message was delivered, in the car. General Grant said: These gentlemen do not reflect that snch action would be a stain upon tha escutcheon of this Nation which could never be wiped out. The assassination seems to have unsettled their wits. Tell me that such men as General Lea and Mr. Davis had anything to do with, a murder, gentlemen whom I have known and esteemed for years, and who arc incapable of crime. As well suspect myself." The response was: "Well, General, the Cabinet are waiting only for you to give the orders, and you will go into their meeting as soon as you get there. I hope when you do that you will speak to them just as you have now done to me." Then came the noble reply; "I shall go further. Mr. Garrett. I shall tell them thev must first take my sword from me. cpon tneir arrival i,enerat 1 1 rani, went directly into Cabinet meeting, and Mr. Garrett remained in the corridor. After some time the Postmaster Gener al came out. Approaching him, Mr. Garrett said: "1 do not wish to-pry in to that which is confidential or secret; but you know the message with which I was charged. When I delivered it General Grant said he would tell you geutlemen that vou AL"T FIRST TAKE HI3 S"VOED r, from him." The answer was: "Ha has done that very thing, Mr. Garrett.' To which the response was: "That ia all I wish to know. Please tell Mr. Stanton he will find me at his housa when your meeting is over. He told me he desired to see me on railroad business, and I shall go there and talk: with Mrs. S. uutil his return." When Mr. Stanton went home he confirmed, what his colleague had said, and gava Mr. Garrett the information that what took place iu the Cabiuet was substan tially the equivalent of what had oc curred aud been said in the car. When this statement was made ta me, in lhb7, by Mr. Garrett, I was as sociated in Washington College, at Lexington, Va., with General. R. E. Lee, and upon my return from Balti more 1 repeated it to bini, remarking that it might be news to him. He ad mitted that it was, but instantly said: "I can add to it for you." And then, he told me that one of his kinsmen,1 hearing a rumor that military trials, and executions were contemplated, and' apprehending trouble, went to Wash ington, and was then making inquiry. Learning which General Urant sent for him, and said: "Please go to General Lee from me, and tell him to- have no! fears; that the government mnst re spect what the army has-done.and that not an ollicer or private to whom terms of surrender aud parole have been con ceded shall be disturbed. " - ' It was long hoped by the undersign ed that publicity would be given to tha above facts by Mr. Garrett himself. But now that his death precludes tha possibility of such testimony, they ara hereby made known as told to me, and as doubtless they have been also com municated by Mr. Garrett to others, if never published before. THE WOULD HAS ADMIRED , the courteous magnanimity of . Grant when Lee surrendered on the field ol Appomattox, and our people have felt, and appreciated it all. But they do not generally know, though they should, that the lives of onr leading men wera in great danger, and that they wera then protected by Grant alone. , A Rare Old Coin. For some time past, says the Louisville Times, extensive improvements hava been in progress at the Phoenix brew ery, situated "on the hill," to com plete which it has been necessary to make extensive excavations.- Yester day while the men were at this work one of them, at a depth of thirty or more feet from the top of the hill, turned over what he thought was an old copper. He picked it np and rubbed off the dirt with his fingers. The coin was shown to Mr. P, Web er, and it turned out to be a very rara one. It is evidently of Spanish coin age, but whether from one of the Span ish isles or one of the provinces ot South America, under Spanish, rule at the date of the coin, no one who has seen it can state. It is of silver, and about the size of an American silver half dollar, but not so thick. - On ona side is a Grecian cross, encircled by the letter "S." The words "Cuncta Per Deum" are beneath the date 1795. On the reverse sido is an odd-shaped shield with the words Res-pubIica Scldore," and beneath "20 Baz," tha evident value of the coin. A number of experts have been asked in regard, to it, and all who were ap proached" by the reporter said that it was a very rare coin. For a "long time there h9 been & legend that there was a large amount of money buried about "the hill," somewhere along r.oa.rgrass creek, and the linding of. this peculiar piece of money created soiuo littlo stir in the neigh borhood. and to-day a number of persons have been watching tho work men and searching in the upturned earth in the hope ot finding a treasure. Mr. P. Weber, the president of tho brewing company, has the coin in hia possession.
