A'OTTKIt tf CO, n 7'x DELAWARE, THE YEAR THAT LISCOIS DIED. " BY HEIEKIAH BUTTEK WORTH. Again the smnmer-fevered skies, ' The cooling autumn calms, . Again the golden, moons-arise On harvest-happy farms. Again we sit together, with . - Thtequiet even tide. As in tne .hado wed hours of life The year that Lincoln died. The March wind early left the zona For distant northern seas, i . And wanileringairs of gentle tone Came to trie door-yard trees, . ' And sadness, in the uewy hours, Mr t-pwn extended wide. When Spring retouched the Mil with flow ers, -The year that Lincoln died, We used to sit and talk of him. Our long, long-absent son We'd two to love us then, good wife, , But now we have but one ' ' Thespi ings return, the autumns bora His grave unknown beanie ; ' They laid him 'neath the moss and fern, The year that Lincoln died. One day I f among uiy flocks Aiid the Aprils delis, W hen, float ing from the city, came. The sound f many bells ; The towns eaught up the joyful sound, I climbed the mountain's side, And saw tne spiiv with banners crowned. The year that Lincoln died. I knew what meant that sweet accord. That jubilee of bells ' , And sung an anthem to the Lord Amid the pleasant dells; But. when I thought of tnosesoyoang That sl.-pt the James beside. In underland of Joy I snng, ' The year that Lincoln died. J. . And when the tidings came, good wife, Our sol.iier boy was dead. I bowed my trembling knee In prayer, '' Yoo lowed your whitened head; . Tlie bons was still, the woo is were calm, And while you sobbed and cried, I sung alone the evening psalm, The year that Lincoln died, I hang his picture "neath the shelf . It still is hanging there I laid the ring where you yourself . Hail put a curl of hair; Then to the spot where witlowa wave, : With helpless steps we hied, . And Charlie's called an empty grave, .The year that Lincoln died. The years will come, the yaars will go, But never at th door The fair-haired boy we used to meet " Will smile upon us more ; But memory long will near the fall Of steps at eventide. And every blooming spring recall The year that Lincoln died. One day I was among my flock Amid the April dells When, at the noondav hour, I heard A tolling of the bells ; . With heavy heart and footstep slow I cliinbeii the mountain's side, And saw the flags h11 hanglug low, The year that Lincoln died. - - . - That eve I stripped to rest awhile 1 .' Beside the meadow bars, - Where years oefore poor Charlie, watched Ihe comet 'mid the stars. Then from his night-encumbered way ; A I ravel-r stepped aside, . ; And told the dreadful news that day, , Tiie year that Lincoln died, ' Ah mnny a year, oh many a year The birds will cross the seas, . t And blossoms fall iu gentle showers Beneath the door-yard trees. And yet will lender mothers weop : . ' The soldiers' graves beside, - , , ' And fresh in memory ever keep The year that Lincoln died. When many sow ihe seed in tears Shall many reap in joy, And harvesters iu golden years ' - Shall bless onr darling boy, ' " With happy homes for other eyes , Expands the future wide ; ' And God acc.-pts our sacrifice, - The year that Lincoln died. J "ii r.s- LOVE vs. COCOONS. If I had given you all day to observe them, you could not have divined it. You might have said that they tied wreaths and stirred cake, and whisked tip and down ladders, and put their charming heads together to giggle at 1 lavid tor the saKe ot the picture they made indoinj it. But that anything was wrong that Letty watched Amy and that Amy resented it I defy you, be us supicious as you like. . It -was close on Christmas. The snow, was piled on the road in drifts. The old house was full of light and a pleas ant stir of preparation, and made ready with might and main to wel come its Christmas guests. It -was rather a rickety house that David Ames had hired for. his young wife. It wanted paint. Its windows were bad ly hung, and the wind found plenty of way under the doors. But the hall was hung with boughs ; the balusters were twined with wreatha; the doors were arched with them ; so were the pictures. And if yon could find a jol lier fire-light in ihe village of Dundale I should like to have seen it. And for a cheerier, sweeter, prettier little woman than Mrs. David Ames.I would never ask yon to try, for it could not be done. Mr3. David Ames, mee Letty Far leigh, was little and brown and plump. She had plenty of fine black hair, soft brown eyes, a little dimpled hand, all manner of wheedling, coaxing ways, but no dignity ; that is, none worth mentioning proof conclusive that she was not-a true Farleigh. The original Farleigh stock was understood to nave been that article (dignity, I mean) in its pure state ; and only by intermar riages adulterated with touches of hu man nature, which now and then re vealed itself unexpectedly in the Far leigh deseendants,as in Letty's case when she married David Ames. This marriage took place immediate ly after the brilliant match of her sis ter Judith with Marston, of Marston Place, and Dundale was conscious of a sort of consternation at the news. Flirtation it could have understood; before her marriage Judith had walked and driven as constantly with Richard Ames as Letty with his brother, and for that matter there was nothing to urge against David, the thriving young proprietor of the factory near by ; only remembering how the Widow Ames had positively pinched off her boys education from her slender income, it would as soou have offered." sixpence for the marble fieDe in tne. f arleigh drawing-room. Nevertheless, here was Letty installed as the mistress of the rickety mansion, ana preparing to receive her Christmas guests. . Judith and her husband were coming; so was Mrs Farleigh ; lor trie iamily accepted Letty's marriage with calm, Farleigh good sense; that is, very much as they might have accepted small-pox. , It was inevitable, and they had nothing left but to make the best of it. Letty must be kept up iu society as well as could be done with that sinker, the son of the Widow Ames, about her neck. So they were all coming. And now, perhaps, you comprehend what was stirring in Letty's warm little heart. Something more than hospitality ; the true wife's desire to do justice to her husband and herhap- Einess. Marble Hebes she had none ; ut David had robbed the forest, and Amy Erksine had robbed her conserv atory, and brought the flowers and her self to Letty's aid ; and then com menced the watching and the tacit quarrel with which we commenced. Amy and Letty were bosom friends. Amy stood bravely by Letty in the troubles about David. Letty had Amy's confidence ; and of course if I hint to any student of human nature that this confidence related entirely to a.certain pronoun, that student will immediately know that this pronoun must have been "He." So Letty's first whispered question was. "How is tier" But the wind had plainly chopped about in some new quarter; lor, in stead of the expected answer, Amy bridled. " 'He' is rather a vague term, Letty ; but if you mean papa, he is quite well." "Ob !" said Letty, scannifig Amy with that look that is feminine for phew ! For the last six months "Ho," in Amy's vocaouiary, naa represented Kob Garston, as none knew better than Mrs. David ; so this sudden ignorance on Amy's part was little Detter than downright impudence; but Letty's keen glance, scathing Amy's hands. caught something new and unfamiliar a sparkle a ring a signet ring at that, with the motto, "Go," and a hand pointing ; and then the mystery was out. .p. very uouy in uuntiaie Knew John Urofton'a ring; and- John Crof ton was the richest man in Dundale.

"Mis ery loves company," thisyoung woman was unfair enough to say to herself. "Letty would like another imprudent match to keep ner m cmiiM3iiiiue. "Little ' simpleton !" said Lett eves. "Ten times Crofton's money would not tempt me ! A meagre, dried, chippy soul ! When she could have the love of a man worth the name, like Robert Garston. So. while smiling at each other, and prattling artlessly over their wreaths and their cookery, the two young women came graauany to swords' points I mean, pins' points. "Why do you sing that?" inquired Amy. Lettv waa crooning "Auld Robin Gray' "It is the most dismal ballad" "Bat, like many other dismal things, so true to nature," answered Lettv, carelessly. "I suppose I was thinking of Jane Field, who has just promised to love and honor the nouse on tne mil." "A very fine house, Letty ; I think I could love it myself." "Too dry and dusty an anection for me; but then Jane is sucn an incapa ble. Not like you. ion would make an excellent poor man s wife, Amy. That cake is perfect."

I am of the mind of Trollope's man, who said that when a woman was nasty, she was very nasty indeed ! Keep a woman pinched and anxious, and 'sooner or later she will look pinched and anxious and frowsy. I never saw it fail." "Do you hoar that, David ?" cried Letty, running up to her husband, who had just opened the door and then matters began to look very squally in deed. "Amy says all poor wives grow frowsy. Am I frowsy yet, and slip shod, and a faded, worn-out creature ?' "You !" echoed David; looking down in astonishment at the bright little face; but Letty canght him .np., ' "J the romance all gone, David, and are wo now only like two dogs chained together by some mistake ?" , "Chained, my , pet 1" J But Letty pounced upon him again. - ' "You stupid old darling !: No won der you don't understand s but tell Amy now ! : You remeulber when we had the M8cphersons.,.to dine? - And such a party, Amy i ', Two stiff old maids, a stifler old bachelpr, and that cast iron Mrs. Ferguson ; and ;not a soul would talk anything but weather, and it was almost the; dullest, dinner, when, providentially,-' it turned out there were not glasses enough ; and I had a cup you remember, David?" . . - "Sure enough !" David began to see hi way clear. "Ha ! ha ! behind the celery dish l" "liohind the celery dish! So it was.' Lotty was quite over her temper now. "And I could not make David give me any water. .

So glad to see you ! and you, Mr. Crofton ! You are the person of all others I most wish to see. i am in the very midst of my dinner. Yon don't think it dreadful to care abriut one's dinner, do you, Mr. Crofton ?" UroitOU BUlueu auu uuweu, li. uiuav be confessed rather absently. , He was a gourmand, as that artful Letty knew; but he was also a lover, and he could not keep his eyes from wandering in the direction of a young lady who kept her back so Btudiously turned that her ears and an edge of very pink cheek were about all that was visible. ' . : "I knew you, would sympathize," continued Letty, with flattering em phasis, and stone-blind to all his symp toms of uneasiness. "Indeed, for my part, I consider it a vulgarity, this af fectation of indifference to what one eats ; and that beef-steaks and meta physicsare more nearly connected than Is generally supposed. And talking of beef-steaks, I shall never forget the one you broiled for us on the sands. That was a new sensation f" "Yon remember!" Crofton was get ting really interested. It is alwai s pleasant to be so well appreciated by such a very pretty woman. "Of course ! that is why I wished for you now ! As I told you, I am in the very midst of preparing for dinner. I feel the fen tacre, really now ; some thing of that spirit that made the tor don bleu commit suicide because- no turbot was to be had for the second course. And here I am hopelessly at a stand-still ! Amy knows nothing ahout it, David knows less, and I never could do it in my life. I have conclud ed that it really requires genius." "It! Mrs. Ames. What?" Crofton's eyes were opened wider and wider at this maarnificent peroration. "The salad dressing, Mr. Crofton ! If vou would it you could as Steve Yates says, I don't hardly dare, scarce ly, to venture to ask;' but if you would mix the dressing tor me ! I'll be your most obedient servant, and bring vou every thing you order, and I'll put the materials on tne nicest table in tne room" with a comical glance toward Amy "only, please do, Mr. Crofton:" Such a coaxing, wheedling little woman, With her hands clasped before her. how' could -Crofton refuse?

He thought the old keeping-room the coziest sort of a re ception-room, and that it would beun commonly nice to mix the dressing; ut the same table with Amv. He had no suspicion that by one of those turns tnat David used to can Lettyisms, no was made into a cook-maid under his lady love's eyes, or how those eyes flashed scorn at him. And Amy! with true feminine justice she vented her wrath on the innocent that is, on Rob Garston. ' Profiting by Letty's diversion, Rob quietly laid before Amy a handful of superb roses. He had been at great trouble to get them, and had reason to suppose . that both himself and his flowers would be welcome. Amy eyd the lovely things frostily, and, without looking up at them, said : "Thank you. Letty will bo very much pleased with them." "Letty!" echoed Rob. "I brought them for you." - - - , "Thanks; but I havo so many al ready" "Why, you promised to wear them." ''Three weeks ago but in three weeks there i time enough to change one's mind." "So it seems," muttered Robj glnno ing at the ring on Amy's haud j "and time enough over to spare to form an engagement." "And if there has been would that concern you, Mr. Garston?" "I should havo thought so three weeks ago," answered Rob, with somo emphasis. ' . Then Crofton came up, and ho went away. Amy had not intended to puBh matters so far. She was too proud to call him back, but she was certainly very miserable. She strained her ears to hear what be was saying to Lettv. "Not at dinner packing trunks start to-morrow for " Amv lout what came in tho intervals. The door clanged, He was gone, "To start for what T'' Ot A' J7'7 V i I ' f ! t -'.-- Amy would have given all her dia monds to know, but Letty never came near her. That remorseless little wo man left her to Mr, Crofton and the salad dressing. Mrs. Farleigh arrived with hampers of Christmas dainties, and a rigid in tention of being pleased with whatev er she saw. It was very nearly dark, and Letty had already lighted candles. The shadows hid rough ceilings and worn paint ; and for fire-light and wreaths, thev are of your true aristoc racy, and always lovely so is the beauty of a refined woman. And hero they all were beautiful women, danc ing, flame and flowers, not to mention Mr. Crofton, who added what might bo called ton to the scene, and certain do lieious whiffs and scents from the kitch en, against which even a Farleigh nose was not proof. Mrs. Farleigh sighed with evident relief, and drew a chair or rather would havo drawn it but Letty rushed forward with a little scream, and with one hand on the chair pointed with the other to a sort of triumphal arch surmounting it, bearing in green letters on a white ground this remarkable legend: "Here is a hole." "Beloved Mother."- said Letty, solemnly. . "when in the course of events it became necessary to turn this carpet it was discovered that a large hole insisted on coming just here. To cover that we place this easy-chair here : and then, as the perverse in stinct of every body would be sure to guide them just here, Amy and I put up this inscription to warn- them off. And if you would consider my feel- InorR. and take anv other seat it is such an ugly hole." : Letty's mock gravity was lrresistioie to every one but Mrs. Farleigh- Crof ton . and David shouted, and Amy clapped her hands ; but the poor moth er! she stood stupefied, and scarlet with mortification. "I will send you a new ..carpet tdr morrow. Letty," she said; and then the tears actually rolled down her cheeks. Letty was her baby her pet child ; and she had married a man who could not afford a whole carpet, while Judith was Mrs." Marston, and that washy blonde, Aniir- Erskine, could marry John Crofton if she chose. Let ty saw the tears, and in a moment she was about her mother's neek. "Dearest mother, if vou send it it will make me so unhappy.- If you knew the fun we have had with our old car pet, David and I how he stretched and I sewed it; and how we economized to buy it. and bought it together; and bought the ugliest carpet that could be had for the money, because each was determined to please the other: so that it is a perfect monument of self-sacri fice, and every thread ot it is twisted in with something generous and pleas ant in our lives. Darling mother, don't look so ! Why do pnople want to be rich ? To be happy ? Then I am very rich, for I am po. happy in my hus band." And here she wont over to David and hung on his arm. "If I want- a hero -what is a hero but a man brave, loyal, and true? and that mad is David, it i. need a person wiser than myself, here he is, David again. If I want protection in a world so cruel, I am safe sheltered by his arm. If I want to feel that I am dearer than all the world to somebody, and that per haps I help to keep one heart better and tenderer, I know that it is so with David. What more couid any one ask than that, mother?" She snoke to Mrs. i arleigh. but she looked in her husband's face, and he without a word put out his arm and drew her close beside him. , Crofton tried to cry brava, but his voice was husky. Mrs. Farleigh's words were gone also. Sho could only give David her hand in silence. For Amy, she had hidden her face. Just here the door opened with a slow, almost noiseless movement, and a woman was seen standing on the sill. The little party were already at that pitch of nervous tension where any astounding and unforeseen occurrence seemed much more In: order than an everyday interruption. But though the intruder Was only Judith Marston. something in. her appearance struck them all with a sort of consternation. She was bareheaded, and the snow laid thick with the diamonds and roses in her chestnut curls. Her satin slippers were soaked her trailing velvet dress was powdered with tho flakes. Her whole look was that of a person raised far above all ordinary impulses. She entered without any attempt at saluta-1 tion, and, going straight to my moth er, threw down before her a web of magnificent laces and a handful of rings! "My Christmas presents ! Six thou sand dollars' worth," she said. "Help me, mother ; I want to get tho six thousand dollars' worth of happiness out of them. Letty there and I specu lated last year for happiness. She gave herself for the man she loved, and I heard what she said as I came in. I gave myself for things like these, and l have been counting my gains!" "Judith!" Mrs. Farleigh and Letty both came forward trembling, but Ju dith waved them back. "Listen ! f tell you I have been counting my gains. I have velvets, laces, horses, Ax minister carpets, dia monds, sevrcs c-nina. society nere moans a number of women, most of whom I despise.. I eat out of the Sevres China, I drive behind the horsea, I wear the velvet and diamonds, l eat, walk, and drive no more agreeably than I did as Judith Farleigh. There is no happiness in these things. China no matter how fine is baked clay; dia monds are charcoal; velvet is a mass of cocoons, when you come to them for happiness; and to-night my hus band, who bores and wearies me brought home the man whom I loved; and I would give them ail to hang on his arm as you do David's Letty. leaked clay and cocoons ! To think of selling one s sell lor tnem z wny i laugneo as I ran through the snow, to think I was in such a hurry to tell you that I could not wait for Mr. . Marston and Mr. Ames. Ha! ha! ha! Cocoons and charcoal ! Think of it!" Of course Mrs. Marston was iu the first stages of fever, and there was an end of the Christmas jollities. Crofton went for her husband, and David, for the doctor; bnt as this last was starting Letty stopped him. "David, I wish you would stop for Robert Garston, and bring him here." "But he is packing trunks." "Never mind, I must see him." "But he has a journey before him." - "You dear old darling, please do as vou are told." The "old darling" promised, and found Amv brooding over the fire. "Robert Garston starts for California to-morrow," remarked Mrs. Ames, with cruel distinctness. Then, feeling that tho train was nroDerlv ignited, sho went np stairs. Crofton. who had volunteered to bring Mr. Marston, passed that gentle man on the road: and so coming back alone, did not spare his horse, for he had visions of a tete-a-tete with Amy, He came in quietly by tho kitchen way. Tne aoor Deiween me Kitcnen and the keeping-room was ajar. Through it he heard voices Amy's voice, at any rate. - "I never knew that I was so mean. Rob.

Tears of rage and disapointment rushed Into Crofton's eyes; but then, weak and sensual as he was, the little man had a heart after all. "God bless them!" he murmured, and softly snut tne door, A Doq'b Bed.

From the CincinnatlCommercial. That the American people are going to submit much lODser to the enormous rates of duty now levied upon all the necessaries ot lite that we import, we presume there is nobody, out side the raoks of the bHndeet of protectionists, who believes. The tax upon consumers as we bare frequently shown, is over forty-seven r-er cent, in srold on the average ; so that, for every pound of tea, or coffee or sujrar, for every yard of woolen or cotton cloth, for ever pound of iron or of salt, which we consume, we are obliged to pay half as much again as we should do, were trade ab solutely free. So long as our Govern ment stands in need of a heavy gold revenue, amounting to upward of one hundred millions a year, so long do we expect that some tariff will be laid up on importations: but every dollar oi such tariff levied in excess of the abso lute needs of the treasury ought to come off, and that forthwith. The idea that he citizen who comsumes say $1,G00 worth of the necessaries ct life per year, is to go on paying $ 1,500 for that thousand dollars worth year after year, to sustain a few American manu facturers, already rich.is too preposter ous to be entertained for a moment. In this view, we are glad to see that the recommendations of Com missioner Weill in his last report are all in the direction of a reduction of duties, al though, we are sorry to say that, in some directions, he does not go far enough. What his propositions are regarding the modification ot duties laid upon iron, leather and salt, we have already considered : let us now look at a few other items : " 1. Coal. The present tax udoo im ported coal is f 1 25 per tun, and the Commissioner recommends the entire removal of this. Upon the general principle that coal is a necessity of life next in importance to food, no tax up on it can be justified except upon the most imperative necessity, like that which justified the internal revenue tax upon coal (of three and a half to six cents per tun) during the war. This was one of the first duties repealed and an attempt was made to repeal the tar iff duty at the same time, but it failed. The only coal imported in the United Stales is that brought from Nova Sco tia. This the Northeastern btates would use io large quantities at the low rate of $4 50 to $5 50 per tun, but for the gold duty pf tl 25 per tun, which enhances it price fuliy twenty- five per cent. This duty ia levied solely for the benefit of a few Pennsyl vania and Maryland coal corporations all rolling in wealth, and making an nually their hundreds of thousands out of the profits on their practical monopoly. By means of it, the peo ple of New England are prevented from buvine this necessary of life in the natural market that lies at their door and are taxed heavily to support not American industry but the super fluity of monopolists. It is high time that we had reformed this abuse. 2. Woolen Goods. The act of 1867 raising the tariff duty cn every de scription of wool and woolen goods to, an unprecedented figure, has' been of ten exposed in our columns.' Experi ence having shown that it has been an unmitigated curse to the country-not even benefiting the manufacturers, in whose interest it was originally mani pulated aud passed through Congress the Commissioner reoommends the entire removal of the duties on foreign wools, and a general reduction of the duties on manufactured woolen fabrics to twenty-five per cent, ad valorem. It is now htty cents per pound and hiriy-five per cent, ad valorem in ad dition. The wools excluded by the existing tariff are not grown with us to any considerable extent. Ihe American manufacturer :a. therefore. greatly restricted in the variety of his products, by the almost prohibitive exclusion of the raw material, and thus shut out from competing with the foreign manufacture, which is im- j ported and used in large quantities, notwithstanding the high tarm duties upon woolen goods On the bssis of a free admission of the diversified for eign wools needed to supply a varied manufacture, the most experienced ma kerb of woolen fabrics in the United States are now agreed that prosperity might be restored to this now greatly depressed industry in this country. On this basis, the cast of domestic wooolen fabrics would be so far re duced as to give great relief to con sumers (and everybody is a consumer,) and at the same time lead to an im mediate large increase of consumption. This would stimulate production in the only healthy and natural method, and would create a demand for domes tic wools, sucb as has not existed for years. A CAT LET OCT. During the late recess of Congress, the efficient Sergcant-at-arms of the Senate made the fearful discovery that an aged Thomas-cat had possessed itself ot an air passage under the neor of the Senate, flere wis something to agitate the gigantic intellect of the official.

' When the Romans erected a statue to Cato in the Temple of llealth, they made npon it no allusion to his vic tories, but this was the inscription: "In honor of Cato, the Censor, who when the commonwealth was degener ating into licentiousness, by good dis cipline and wise institutions restored it." Mr. Stanton, having taught a great lesson in his life, has taught an other in his death. lie took upon him self, it seems,, long since, not only the knightly vow of courage, but the other knightly vow of poverty. Having con trolled a national expenditure of two millions a day, he died at last and left his children poor. A year ago, in failing health, and feeling the necessity of some rest from professional labors, Mr. Stanton was compelled to ask a loan from a per sonal friend. A citizen of Cleveland, learning the fact by accident, hastened to send the Secretary a check for five thousand dollars, hpggiog its accept ance as a mark of Mi esteem and grati tude for the great services he had ren dered the country. As soon as ho had recovered sufficiently, Mr. Stanton made the following reply : Washington City, January 23. 180$. "Mt Dear Friend I regret to Iearn by Mr. H.'s note received this morning, that your illness mentioned by Mr continues to afflict you. My own severe indisposition has delayed the gratefu- acknowledgment of your unexampled and disinterested kind ness to one who bad no claim upon your personal generosity. It surprised me beyond measure, as the first and only practical appreciation, among many thousand verbal and sincere words of affectionate respect that I have received. But, my dear friend, I can not suffer even your kindness to have the form you desire. Never a rich man, but toiling for livelihood from childhood the elder of a family of orphan children, with many heavy burdens of duty upon me. Providence has always enabled me to win support for myself and those dependent upon me, without being a borrower or owing any debt. For the chance of restoring my health, by a few months' rest from labor, my application was made to Mr. as it would hare been made to a brother. Your kindness and re spect, developed in this unexampled manner and by accident, affords me more joy than could gold and silver, even for the purpose of my present wants. But one thing more is needed. ' "While your generous friendship will be cherished among the most pleas ant events of my life, with the remem brance of your disinterested contribu tion to the efforts at its preservation from disease, even ia the hour of your own suffering, yet I must beg you to take my note at twelve months for the amount, which I have forwarded with this to Mr. for delivery. .. "If myjife be spared and health re stored, I hope to find no trouble in making payments out of the gains of my profession. If my time has come, or I am called while the debt is out standing, my estate will have enough to pay it. And. my dear friend, this wiil in no degree diminish the obliga tion imposed by your friendship. Tiat is too precious ever to change or fade from my heart. "My health improved for some time from the condition it was at Cleveland and gave promise of full restoration, but recent exposure ' in crossing the mountains, and professional labor at Wheeling, has occasioned some troub le, from which I am now recovering. I hope, my dear friend, that you atid those who love you may soon rejoice at the restoration of your health, and among them all no heart will be more sincerely glad than mine. - Edwin M. Stanton. "- .Esq., Cleveland, Ohio." WORK FOR WOMEN. We learn that a novel institution for women is to be opened in the neigh borhood of Boston, as soon as the req uisite funds are obtained. It is to be a horticultural school, and is designed not as a charitable institution, but a high-class school where thorough instruction in horticulture ' will be given to youDg women for such com pensation, as will, in the end. make it self supporting, or nearly so. Ihe working-plan or tho school comprises a farm, to be procured in the vicinity ot 'lioston, containing about twenty acres, five acres to be used for the cultivation of small fruits, flowers, salads, and such vegetables as are suitable for culture by female labor, the rest to be devoted to mowing and pasturage ; a good plain dwelling-house capable of accommodating about thirty inmates; a barn large enough for the farm stock, and an experimental plant house tor growing flowers and early vegetables, and the forwarding ot plants for field crops. The control of the institution is to be vested in a president, secretary, treasurer, sod twenty-four managers one half of whom will be ladies who will be aid ed by a competent instructor, an ex perienced farmer, and the necessary assistants. The pupils will be iostrao- ted in plain sewing, the use ot the sewing-machine, and in all kinds of house work, as well as in hortionltaxa; and lecturers and teachers in kindred branches of labor and service will be employed from time to time.. it is intended to rcceivo pupils to the number of twenty-five, who are from the age of sixteen upward, of good character, fair education, and able to work as may be required. The course of instruction will extend through two years. The estimated cost of procuring the farm and out buildings, and maintaining the school for three years, is 130,000. . BEST. "Hold me, auntie." What sweet trust and loving confidence were expressed in tho dear little upturned face, as Editb. tired of play, stood at roy side with outstretched arms.
