it's a blei-sing to have mot her cross."

isn't for her, it's your letter," and the
boy threw il into his mother's lap.
Jenny opened her inoiilh to speak, but
she caught Aunt Milly's eye, and was
silent. Dick danced round the room on
one toot, managing to get entangled
Jenny's worsted, and niter breaking
finally reaching his mother's chair.
"Il was from John," he said looking
over her shoulder.
"Yes, and he's coming homo in two

What, wouldn't answer its brother?
Thought the letter was for you. Many

"Dick let her alone," said Mrs. Fan
ning, going out of the room aud leaving
the letter with Aunt Milly.
"Who' rf touching her?" was the reply
emphasized by a dexterous tip of the
chair Jenny was silting in, which result
ed in flooring the occupant. Jenny
sprang up with a very red face.
"Don't go after him," said A iut Milly,
"and don't cry."
"What shall 1 do then ?"
"Stay here and lanh and when vou
are ready I'll read you John's letter."
"J in all ready now, thonu'li 1 do think
Dick ought to ho punished."
"11 8 punishment enough to be so
nauirhtv and unkind. See that vou do
your part, and things will all come right."
John s letter was like John himself,
bright, and hearty, aud rollicking; full
uve tor everybody, and full ot anticipa
tions ot the good limes to come, lie

y reminding them that in two weeks
should be at home.
Isn't it a good letter ?" said Mrs.
''annii.g, coming in as Aunt Milly read
the last eentence. "I don't see why he
honld care so much about coming," she
went on to sav, beating away al a bowl
of eggs that alio had brought from the
kitchen, "there's nothing very pleasant

Mr. Fanning, he n.ivs, 'Yes enjoy as you
so along, and fetch up iu the poor-house,
that's some folks' way of enjoyment, but
tin'l mine.' If he's said that to me once,
Milly, he's said it a thousand limes."
"There am worse evils than the poor-
house," said Milly.
"Well, at any rate, your brothor ilou
think so; but you aim much alike, that's
i fiict. 1 don't see how you come to

lo gel his father to slack np a little ; but
aw, you might s well try to slop a house

"And how long does John stay
home," enquired Aunty.
"lie II bo here about six weeks. 1
glad you're here, to help him pass the
time, for I often worry about its being
so dull for him. I'm afraid sometimes
that he won't care so much about com

From this time forward but little was
thought of except John's coming.

Doreis Brown, the dressmaker, tailor

hood, appeared at the Fanning farm in
due time, armed with her big shears, her
scisstusof various sizes, her marvelous
needle book, her sleel thimble, aud last,
but not least, her tailor's goose.
"I brought my goose along," sbo said,
getting out of the farm wagon, and wad
dling into the hoip-e, under the weight
of her looN, for said I to myself: Like'e
n.it miss Fanning 'II have something for

ed a not unmusical laugh al her attempt
" I'm glad you did," said Mrs. Fanning
.soberly; "D.ck's as ragged as a colt. It

It didn't take long for Dorcas to get
through breakfast, aud soon the little
sitting room was transformed into a
workshop. Jenny was sewing straight
seams, Milly was ripping her sister-in-law's
old alpaca, for Dorcas to make over,
and the baby, delighted with the unusu
al bustle, and variety, was iu his very
best behavior. The day passed smoothly
and rapidly, as did the days that suc
ceeded ; thoughts of John's coming seem
ed lo harmoiii.e the entire household
even Dick's restless spirit was turned
from the usual channel of mischief, and
occupied in efforts to get together as
many fish hooks as possible before John's
The mother went about her work wilh
a smile on her fane, aud sometimes a
song on her lips ; Jenny had wonderful
success in keeping her temper, mainly,
I suspect, because there wasn't much
temptation to lose it, and " the baby was
a little blessing the whole te tote of the
time so it was."
It has long- been an established fact,
that the longest day conies to au end;
this is equaly true of the longest week,
and the day of John's arrival dawned
bright and beaut ilul.
" He's starling about this time," said
Mrs. Fanning, as she ban led the coffee
to her husband.
Who's starting," said Mr. I aiming,
g' "ffly- . .
" why John of course, who else siiottiu
" I s'pose there's other folks in the
world besides John, now, isn't there?"
was the reply ; but iu spite of the attempt
to hide all interest, there was an unmis
takable smilo ou the farmer's rough fact.
John Fanning was proud of John J.tin.i
every body knew that, though he Woilld
have borne considerable torture ueiuie
he would have admitted it.
' I'll have your dress done Miss Fan
ning Inside of an hour, and the clutter
cleared up," said Dorcas.
" Oh there's no hurry. Don't think
John will stay in the bouse long. He'll
be all over tho farm before night."
"That he will," replied the father;
"and he wont rest till he knows eveiy
thing th it's going on by everybody
squirrel and woodchucks included."
The breakfast things were cleared
away, and Mrs. Fanning began to cook.
The pantry must be full lor John. The
house was alreay cleaned from top
bottom, and when flaky pies, and
doughnuts, and snowy bread should
come out of the oven, nothing would
lacking. Jenny was useful iu fetching
aud carrying ; and sifting flour and beat
ing eggs, aud the hours flew by.
"Jenuy." said her mother towards
noon, "vou can dress the baby now."
"Come along pudg-mudg," said Jenny,

eagerly r. ivi t-d or was so de-nltr irr.itetnl for
just appreciation. 'o man who wus a great
power in the politics of hi time naa ever so
far removed from the character of siole.
Any friend who was free from all suspicion of
interested motives could easily rind the way
into the inner citadel of his gentle heart,
riiou j an unsparing eonirov- realist, be bore
no in ilice ev.'ti in ihu heat of political con
tention ; and no m in ever responded more
warmly to th" personal esteem of pnrty an

Such natural recognitions of military ability

to the cause for which eaeh partyfighls. Men
of honor and stable convictions nre under no

of tlieir adversaries. The writer was never so

the family vault, through lines of reveieul,
uncovered heads we say we can never forget
the heart-breaking impression made upon us
Mr. Greeley's fixed and most wistful look,
directed upon us ou that mournful occasion,,
as if craving the deep sympathy to which our
long intimate relations entitled him, and
which be could not doubt that, above all the
other pallbearers, we were ready to give to
the bereaved husband, the half-orphnned,
stricken clnuL'hicrs, the pet lamlis of his fond,
yearning, paternal hear . It was Hie last time
mat ins eyes and ours ever met in a recog
nizing look ; and we deplore our neglect to
seek him out and pour our free sympathy into
bis craving, responsive breast, alter that sail
scene was over. The earnest, wistful look
he theu fixed upon us, will never be effaced
till our dying day. We bvg that readers will
pardon us for this unseemly mastery widen
our c-mo to is have got oyer an habitually
cold pen. Something must lie pardoned lo
the :nfirmity of our poor human nature.
We have really nn heart for the duly which
is laid npon us on this occasion. If our feel
ings would permit us to lake tlie position of
mere outside spectator", the fit thing for us to
do would be io make a just, uncolored esti
mate of Mr. Greeley's character and career.
But the circumstances of his death strike us
as so indescribably tragic and affecting that
we have no command of our critical faculties,
il is difficult to think of anything beyond the
grief-iuspirine spectacle of 'such 'a death, fol
lowing so swiftly upon the great eclipse and
extinguishment "I the hopes which Mr. Gree
ley had good reasons for enteriit'i ling during
some stages of the recent crushing canvnss.
"The stars in tlieir courses" seemed to fight
against him. He relumed from that fatiguing
tour in tlie West, in which Ids faculties sliono
out in a surprising blaze of culminating
splendor, to find Ids poor wife in the last
stages ol her long decline ; nnd with a devo
tion like that which he felt in the days of
their early, youthful love, before time and
disease bad impaired li'-r beauty, or domestic
trials bad eff.tceil the bloom of their early nf
fertion ; he was constantly at her bed-side,
wilh the fidelity of a ministering angel, pass

und T less exigent circumstances, would have
been due to repose after his recent exhaustless
labors. The strain upon his physical endur
ance and the more tremendous strain upou
his quick emotional susceptibilities was too
much lor him. The bow was not merely
bent, but broken. The strength of a constitu
tion, never weakened by any other excesses
thau overwork, gave way; the chances of
life which belonged to him by heriditary lon
gevity, (bulb his lather and grandfather lived
to be upwards of eighty,) were squandered ;
and t'.ie vessel so rudely tossed in these recent
tempests was thrown upon the beach an utler
wreck. It is the saddest ending of a vigor
