J. REICHEfiia nov.aese tf. From Our Young Folks. POLLY SYLVESTER'S DREAM. Little Polly Sylvester lay fast asleep It was a cold, dreary place, where the rats scampered about, and the mice scuttled and squeaked in every corner; there were broken panes in the win dow, that let in the ' bitter November wind, and all about bnng streaming cobwebs, bundles of dry herbs, hanks of yam, and wisps of flax, till you could hardly see that there was a win- aow ; put through its dingy glass what nrLio iignt mere was on that gray morning, fell across the bed and rested on Polly. She lay very still ; the tangled mass of deep chestnut curls was brushed awav from her Dale, deli cate face, the great eyes were shut tight, and their heavy fringe of dark lashes never a uivered : but there was a smile on her parted lips sweet as summer's own sunshine, and so wist- iui it would have made anvbodv with a heart ache to see it. But Mrs. Tarbox hadn't anv heart. or if she had, and ever felt it throb in her breast, it had its ears boxed long ago, and was now hard and silent. one came lumberinsr un the stairs this morninsr with Fish in her arms, in a great passion. (jret up, you little carrot-head ! get up, I say ! You're lazier than a snail. Ef I git at ye I guess you'll move pret ty ruusiuer uie spry I 'Dit up, tallow-head, else I'll bang oo !" echoed Fish, who was almost three years old. but a babv still, and a horrid one. The smile on Sallv's tender little mouth changed to a piteous quiver as she flung aside the bedclothes, and with a shiver jumped out of bed. ''I was dreamin'," she said, in such a sad voice. this, mornin's. now I tell ye. Hurrv up 'nd come down f There, he's most ready for his breakfast, 'nd I've had to lug this great feller all round, and VI- oA-ly she wants her shoes tied 'nd her things hooked up." "Turn along tick, 'fore me kick oo! shouted Fish : and Poll v. Iiavintr hud dled on her thin and raeeed clothes. slipped into her shoes, an old pair of rr. iaruoi'8, ana. scuttled down stairs as fast as she could. She didn stop tn comb her hair or to wash her face, but took Fish .in her arms and went into the bedroom to dress Viohlvl (whose name was Viola!) a scrawny grri some eignt years old, witn thin light hair, weak blue eves, and a sallow complexion : fretful and sicklv. but. after all, kinder to Polly than any- uuu.v ise in tne house, and loved ac cordingly. Master Fish was set down on the floor while his sister's boots were laced, her hair brushed, her clothes fastened, and the rent in her pink calico frock basted uo: -and he amused himself by overturning his mother's mending-basket, whieh Polly must set to ritrhts: then she soread ud mo oeu, ana snouiaering r isn, went iito tne kitchen. There at the break- ist-table sat the rest of the family. Jehiel Tarbox, the father, a rough. stingy, coarse iarmer, whose loose lips, red eyes, and stupid expression told the road he hnrl tukert at once ; .VioAly, her mother, and two big boys. Jackson and Everett, ihe terror and torment of Polly's lile, two young brutes .woo thought a poor trembling child fair game, and took pleasure in her shrieks and supplications. JSow Mrs. Tarbox took Fish on her lap and fed him with fried pork, cold cabbage, and hot bis cuit yeiio w witn soaa, while pony tried cakes over the hissing stove, not fas' enough by any means to suit the boys or their father, '"Hurry up your cakes, Silly" Poll t" shouted one, "or I'll let the old bull out into the harn-yard 'nd set you to catchin' chickens there." "Come on, Polly Syl !" . chimed the other ; "fetch along your slapjacks, or I'll come 'ndstir you tp," a process Polly had experienced before, .and stood in mortal fear of. But when breakfast was scrambled through, and Polly allowed to eat her scraps of food standing at one end of the table, and, because she had slept too late, denied the one thing that could have made her scanty meal toler able to her, a cup of the hot drink they called coffee, Mrs. Tarbox began to map out her day's work. "Come ! don't be a-standin' there all day ; swaller your vittls quick 'nd fly round. There's heaps 'nd heaps to do. After you've fed the chickens, 'nd emptied the swill-pail, 'nd dr.ive the caows, 'nd got Fish to sleep, 'nd right ed things ginerally, there's two barrels o' red apples thet's got to be fixed for dryin'; Viohly she can string 'em,.. I guess." "Say. Mar ! can't I go down to the pastur' lot, long of Polly," whined Viohly. "Yes, if you're a mind ter, only don't bang round there all day; get home quick." . i . So when Polly had done her first "chores," and established Fish- safely ijj a dry goods box with a heap of sand, an ear of corn, and a string of thread spools to play with, in which primitive nursery he was used to content him self for, an hour at a time, perhaps, the two girls put on their hoods and shawls, such as they were, and set off. Polly opened the cow-shed door and let the mild-eyed, friendly creatures out into the lane, saying a word or two to each of the. three as. tbey passed, quite as if they had been friends. Tt is time now to introduce our little girl. Her father had been a flourish ing young carpenter ih a Vermont vil lage, that hid itself among vast and verdant bills like a nest in the crotches of a fir-tree. ' Sam Sylvester loved his sweet little wife so much, that, when one day she died and left him, he want ed to die too; and nobody could com fort him, not even the tiny baby that lay and wailed in an old cradle as if it feltt what it could not yet kn'iw, the sorrows of a motherless child. There was no one in Hill vale in any way re lated to Sam ; he was an orphan, like his wire, and any relatives he might have in the seaboard Mew England town where his father had lived he had never seen or heard from ; so that When he made up bis mind to try his fortune iu California, because Hillvale was so desolate to him now, he put little Paul ine, who was named for her mother, under the care of his next door neigh bor, a Mrs. Moore, leaving money enough to pay her for a year, and prom ising to send on more. He went away wit h a sad heart ; but when he got to California, the voyage and the change bad taken his thoughts off quite suc cessful. In the mean time Polly grew up under kind and motherly -Mrs. Moore's care into a fat and happy baby. One day, about a year after he left home, a couple of his mining mates, who had been down to San Fiancisro for stores, stepped into bis tent, and after standing about uneasily for a moment, one of them spoke. " '- "Say, Sylvester ! ' you didn't corue. from Hillvale, Vermont, did ye T" - "Yes I did, to be sure." i; - The two men exchanged a glance; and the one who had not spoken saun tered out. . Bill Decker went on r. "Anybody there related to ye any ways f" ' ""Nobody but my little girl."

Baby was dead then ; the little creature he had hoped would zrow into as sweet a woman as ber dead mother, while she waited for him to come back and claim her. "Well !" said he, slowly, "that's the iast on t ; but I may as well go to work," and he did. Nothing more was heard of him in Hillvale, and he never knew that the Daoer Bill Decker had seen was an old one, so old that it was his wife s death in the reeister. notms cnua s. In the mean time good Mrs. Moore. not receiving any money, or hearing any news from "Sam Sylvester, still took care of the lovely little child as if it bad been ber own. it bad round its place in her great tender heart, and thouirh she was ooor she would never give Polly up. The child was six years old when Mrs. Moore died suddenly, and being a childless widow, with no property to leave behind her. Pollv Sylvester was sent to the selectmen of the town and by them bound out to Mrs. Tarbox. Two long years ago, and six months beside, had Polly taken her place in this new -larmiy, ior ii was not a new horns. When she came there she was a plump arid rosy child, with rows oi shining cncsxnui enns, eyes as brown, clear, and laree as a flying squirrel's, and neatly dressed. To-day she was what we have seen her ; the long drudgery, nnkindness, improper food, and no care had made little Polly a forlorn sight. "We left her driving the cows with Viohly.

The tears streamed down those little pale, hollow ehee as, and Polly sat down on a stone sobbing bitterly ; for she had driven the cows into the lot and put up the bars while she told her story. . , . . . Viola was not a bad child, and she was a child ; a certain dull sympathy filled her heart for the poor little thing who sat there trying not to sob, and moDDiner her face with the corner of her ragged calico apron. "Sav ! don't ve cry no more, Polly. I'll give ye a real soft apple to stop; don't no more, now."

Au tumn had broughtits still harder work than summer, ana wnen winter came, with drifts of pitiless snow over moun tains and valleys, and the fierce winds blew more and more keenly upon Pol ly's half-clothed body and poor pre tence of a bed.-the child seemed to shrink away daily; there was no place for her by the fire at night, no warm and nourishing fod by day, and when she was worn out with hard work she crouched and shivered under her scan ty bodclothes at night, falling asleep from fatigue, without being warm. Onemorninff it was the day before Christmas, but Polly did not know it, lor no record oi any noiiuay -uut Thanksgiving was ever kept in the Tarbox family she was found in her garret so drowsy-and stiff with cold that Mrs. Tarbox took alarm lest some day her bound girl might be unbound, and leave her for the h6use of that Father whom the poor child thought had forgotten hT.

INCOME A writer In the Atlantic ATontUy makes the following intelligent and forcible argument in favor of reducing if not abolishing the tax on incomes The present law expires by limita tion in 1870, so that, if the tax is again to ne conectea, it must be by a re-en actment; and there is no reason to believe that this can be effected with out large modifications. Yet after all. it is iainy a question whether such modifications as are likely to prove the injustice of the popular impression. Mr. Lincoln ;was very sensitive of the criticisms of the newspaper press, believing it. a3he as serted, the true voice of the people. ihe failures ot JVIcUowell and Jlc Ulellao, and Burnsiae and Pone, with the Army of the Potomac, and the accompanying criticisms of the news papers, had almost crazed him. Time and again be would free himself from tne vv nite iiouse, ana seek jur. Stan ton's little office, the only place in VVaghiDfi;ton. he often remarked. where he was free from bores. He often talked to Mr. Stanton of resign ing, or pressing on Congress the pro priety of giving the control of the army and navy to military men. It was during this period that he con ceived the idea of puttioe Hooker in command of the Army of the Poto mac, and have bim make an effort for success, lie bad a good-opinion of as are Iikelv to take place can be considered as a reduction of taxation. It is not in the least im-1 Hooker, thinking bim an honest and probable that an income tax at three sincere Datriot and soldier He nnt per cent, but without some of the pres ent irrational exemptions, would bring nearly if not quite as much money in to the treasury as the present duty of nve per cent. - Tne tact is, tne tax Is too high, as the whisky tax was last year. Five per cent is a great deal for only one form of taxation, when it is rememoerea wnat a small margin at best is allowed by the necessary ex penses of living in these days. What a man must have requires so large a part of the income of all but the wealthy, that very little is left for pleasure or leisure. Take a renresen tative income of twenty-five hundred dollars, with thirteen hundred dollars of exemption. At five per cent the tax is sixty dollars. Yet bow few heads of families of that income ever have a clear sixty dollars, which they ieei aDie to devote to a distinctly lux urious expenditure! For income of this class, it is not exaggeration to say tnat tne tax aosorDstne whole or what would otherwise be the pleasure fund of the family; not a small sacrifice to make when it is remembered that the same tax-payer has already paid a hundred and fifty dollars, at least, to tne government in tne duties on tor eign goods, while he has suffered from a general enhancement of prices, in consequence of State and Federal tax ation, to twice that amount. And it is really not the best finance to main tain the income tax at such a point, in ordinary times, as to constitute a griev ance. An income tax is properly a war tax. it is so regarded in England, it should be kept up in time of peace; but at its minimum, not its maximum. THE GROWTH OP MONOPOLIES. To the careful observer of current events, nothing in the whole cateeorv of results growing out of our peculiar system of Government seems more portentous, than the singular willing- I ton, there's hope yet I" ness on the part of the people to create gigantic monopolies by special enact ment, and to place themselves com pletely at their mercy. The extent of our territory seems to favor the growth him in command, and did everything in his power to make him fight, what ho wanted to make the closior battle of the war. Accordingly when Hook er got under way and new3 carae that at Chancellorsville be would make his fight, Mr. Lincoln was io . the greatest state of mental excitement. From the time that Hooker began to march until the smoke of battle had cleared from the fatal field of Chan cellorsville. he scarcely knew what it was to sleep. It will be remembered the fight lasted three days. During the first two days it looked as if Hook er was about to accomplish what so many railed to do. but early on the third day the usual half hour dis patches began to make matters look worse. That whole day Mr. Lincoln was miserable. He ate nothing, and would see no one but Mr. Stanton. As it grew dark the dispatches ceased coming : altogether. The President would walk from the White House to the War Department and anxiously inquire for Hooker. The night was dark and stormy abent as mean a night as was x ever experienced in WasmnetOD. About 7 Clock the Pres ident closed his visits to the War De partment.' An hour afterward a disoatch of an indefinite character was received, and Mr. jstanton bnrried with it . to. the White House. He found Mr. Lincoln walking the room, and as he entered, the agonizing appearance of the man so terrified him that it was with diffi culty he could speak. Mr. Lincoln walked to him like a wild man. and seizing the dispatch from his hand, read it, and simply remarked : "Stan- At Mr. Stan .A. GOOD WORD FOIl WINTER.

JNew evidenoe of the existence of tbe Mound-liuilders la the mountain ranges of Colorado, similar to those in Montana, Utah, and Nevada, have re cently been discovered by Mr. O. A. Deane, of Denver. He found upon the extreme summit of the snow-range structures of stooe,evidently of ancient orieio, and hitherto unknown or: un molested. Opposite to and almost north of the South Boulder Creek, and the summit of the range. Dr. Deane observed large numbers of granite rocks, and many of them as large as two men oould lift, in a position that could not have been the result of chance. They had evidently been placed upright in a line conforming to a general contour of tho dividing ridee, and frequently extending in an unbroken line for one or two hundred yards. Tbe walls and the mounds are situated tbree thousand feet above the timber line. It is, therefore, hardly supposable that they were, built for altara of saorifioe. They . were not large enough for shelter or defense.
