" Yes, Marion, lay aside your scruples for this once." said the JudjfO in a low tone, oiii;; towar.l I Ins daughter, " the eonipany exp.-ct ,i(. J)o not so infringe ujion the rules f etiquette; in your home do as you please ; but in mine, for this once, please me.'' livery eye turned toward the bri dal pair. Marion's principles were well known. Henry has Im-cii a con vivalist ; but of late his friends no ticed the change in his inaniiers,the difference in his habits, and to nijiht i they watched linn to see, as they : siiecrinly said, if he was tied dowii to a woman's opinions so soon. ' Pouting a briinuiiii cup, they , held it with teiiiptinef smiles toward I .Marion. She was cry jiale thouli . more composed ; and her hand shook ! not, as smiling back, she gracefully . accepted the crystal, tempter, anil raised it to her lins. I'.ut scarcely j had she done so when every hand I was arrested by her piercing exchi ' illation of ' Oh ! howterril I"!" ' " What is it .'" cried one and all. j thronging together, for she had slowly carried the glass at arm's I length, and was tixedly regarding ! it as though it were some hideous ! object. ! ' Wait." she answered, while : ! light, which seemed inspired, shone ; i from her dark eyes, " wait, and 1 ' I will tell, 1 see,"' "she added slowly i I pointing one jeweled linger at the ! .sparkling ruby liquid "a sight I that licggars all description; and' I vet listen I will oaint it if I can.

(Iciiius in ruins oh! that high, holy-looking brow ! why should death mark it so young? book how he throws back the damp curls! see him clasp nis hands! hear his thrill ing shrieks for life! mark how he clutches at the form of his compan ion, imploring to be saved! Oh! hear hint call pitioiisly his father's name see him twine his lingers to gether as he shrieks for his sister his only sister the twin of his soul weeping for him in bis distant na tive land. See!" she exclaimed, while the bridal party shrank back, the un- tasted wine trembling in their fal- tering grasp, and the Judge fell over-powered, upon his seat "see! his arms arc lifted up to Heaven he prays, now wildly, for mercy ! hot fever rushes through his veins. The friend beside him is weeping; awt'-strickeii, the dark men movesi- lently away, and leave the living and the dying together. There was a hush in that princely parlor, broken only by what sccineU a vmothcretl sob, Ironi some manly bosom. The bride stood yet upright, with quivering bp, and tears steal ing to the outward edge of her lashes. Her beautiful arm had lost its tension, ami the glass, with its little troubled red waves, came i slowly toward the range ol her vi sion. Sue spoke again; every bp was unite. Her voice was low. faint, yet awfully district; she still fixed her sorrow ltd glance upon the wine cup. " It is evening now; the great white moon is coining up, and his beams lay gently on his forehead. I le moves not ; his eyes are set in their sockets ; dim are their pierc ing glances ; in vain his friend whispers the name of father, sister death is there. Heath and no soft hand, no gentle voice to bless and sooth him. His head sinks back! one convulsive shudder! he is dead !" "Dead!" she repeated again, her lips quivering faster and faster, and her voice more and more broken ; " ami there they scoop him a grave; and there, without a shroud, they lay him down in that damn reeking earth. Tin; only sou of a proud lather, the only btoli.ed brother of ti loud sister. And he sleeps today in that distant country, with no stone to mark the spot. There he lies my father's son my own twin oroiher! a victim to this deadly p isoii! Tut her," she exclaimed, tiirnir. suddenly, while the tears ruined down her beautiful chocks " fm ner, shall 1 drink it now?" The form of tho old Judge was convulsed with ngony. He rnisod not his head, but in a smothered voice he faltered No, no, mv child X(!" She, lifted the glittering goblet, and letting it suddenly fall on the floor it was dashed in a thousand pieces. Many a tearful eye watched her movement, and instantaneously every wine glass was transferred to the marble table on which it had been prepared. Then as she looked at the fragments of crystal, she turned to the company, saying, "Let no friend hereafter, who' loves me tempt ine to jH-ril my soul for wine. Not firmer are the everlasting hills, than my resolve, God helping me, never to touch the poisoning cup. And he to whom , I have given my hand who watched over my broth er's dying form, in that last solemn hour, and buried the dear wanderer there by the river, in that land of gold, will, I trust, sustain mc in that resolve. Will you not, my hus band J" His glistening eyes, his sad, sweet smile, was her answer. The Judge left the room, and when an hour af ter, he returned, and with a more subdued manner took part in the en tertainment of the bridal guests, no one could fail to read, that he, too, had determined to banish the ene my at once and forever, from his princely home. Those who were present at that wedding, can never forget the im pressions so solemnly made. Many, from that hour, renounced forever the six-ial glass. An Incident oi-'tiib Fiusr ruiL ADEi.ntiA Convention. (low Mor ton, of Indiana, in a recent speech related the following significant in cident of the " my policy" schemers at Philadelphia, showing how near they came to publishing a direct in sult upon all Union soldiers: " I want now to mention a fact that occurred at the Philadelphia Convention, which I believe is not generally known. It is a very sig nificant fact, however, and was sta ted by Judge Hughes in a public sjieech nt Masonic Hall, ill Indiana polis, a which time the Judge call ed upon any member of the Indiana delegation to contradict the state ment. They appointed a Commit tee composed of one or two from each State, to prepare resolutions to be submitted to that Convention Hsu plat I'm i.i. They prepared the resolutions and got' through with their labors on Wednesday night, and the resolutions were to be sub mitted to the Convention on the next day. In this plat form which they had prepared they had inserted a resolution complimenting the n bcl soldier and the L'nion soldier .just alike for their bravery. They put the rebel soldier and the Union soldier upon a perfect equality ; and why should not they J There were a good many more rebel soldiers in that Convention than there were l'nion soldiers. They did not go there for the sole purpose of thank ing l'nion soldiers, but in their res olution they thanked the American soldier, without regard to the section of country from which he came, and in less than a year and a half after this was over, placed the rebel sol diers and the l'nion soldiers upon an equality. Hut at three o'clock on Thursday morning a delegate from Indiana, who seemed to have more sense than any of the rest of them, got up from his bed and had the members of the committee call ed up. lie had them assembled at the Continental Hotel before day light, ami told them tliat if that res olution went to the country in that form it would grind uem to powder in the North ; that tin- time had not come when they could go before the Northern people ami put rebel sol dicrs on an equality with l'nion sol diers, and compliment them. There- tire the resolution was changed, it is said, by striking out the word " Ameriean,"ainl inserting the word " Federal" before "soldiers." Week before last 1 received a pa per published at Augusta Iteorgia the Augusta Srntim-l and Chronicle edited by a rebel soldier, who whs a member' of the committee which formed the Philadelphia platform. He says in his paper that the change was not made w ith the consent of a majority of the committee, and that, in its present form, the resolution is a fraud upon the Southern people. He says that a majority of the com mittee did not consent to strike out the word American, and insert the word Federal, and that, they don't feel bound by the resolution in its present form. A private letter from Jefi'ersoti, Texas, to a resident of Albany, N. Y., says: This is a great country. We have a tight every day with the d d niggers. You can bet we slaughter them by tho wholesale. I think in the course of a few years we shall have a white settlement. Tell your father in-law I am making good' use of tht revolver he gave me." The difference between the num ber of people who cat mid those who sleep, in New York, is 117,MK. The window glass of Hie great Exhibition Palace will cover WiJKKI Opinion. A S IB A Zt ! K II O O X I' It 1. I.OIMJLIL I.NTBkEHTlNO INCIDENT IN THE BATTLE OF OETTYS III. Hli. The late Joshua It. Giddings. of blessed memory, was dead shot, not only oratorical)- considered, but with a rirle. There was not a man in the county of Ashtabula (ami that county was celebrated for tine marksmen) that could excel hiui either at squirrel hunting or at a tar get shot. His son Grotius it. is a veritable chip of the old block. )n these hunting excursions of the eld er Giddings lie was invariably ac companied by Grotius, and if was luring these Nimrodian seasons that the youngster received those lessons in politics and wood craft which so well fitted him for the ca reer which the shadowy future had in store foi him. On these occasions the elder would say tohim, "Grosh, my lxy, never be guilty of an act or a word which will give aid, counsel or comfort to the institution of sla very ami its attendant iniquities, or close your doors or heart against the hunted fugitives from oppres sion, or bring home a squirrel unless shot through the head." Each ot these maxims harmoniz ed completely with the natural bent of the youngster's mind; he treas ured them accordingly. His return ing at the age of fourteen from a match squirrel hunt of two days' duration, and bringing him one hun dred and eighty of the "small deer" with their heaths off, proved that the wood craft part w as well learn ed, and his stfbsequent career, both in held and ofliee, showed that the political portions of the father's teachings were well stored by the son. lint 1 started to tell yoii an incident of the battle of Gettysburg, lie patient : " I am coining to that. I must reach the point by regular approaches. At the breaking out of the war, "Old Father (lid dings" was Consul General of Cana da, stationed at Montieal. Grotius 1!. was in his ofliee as Vice Consul General. When the first news of the struggle was received young Geldings became restless. His fath er noticing the fact, remarked to him one day, "Grosh, what's the matter with you f " Father," re plied the Vice Consul, " I think I want to ;o home." " Well," said the elder, " I've been thinking it was the best thing you could do; and the sooner the better. " When fan you get ready?"' " Iiy the next train," answered the junior. On the next train he started for the llitckeye State. Passing through Columbus, he called on iiovcrnor Bonnison, who was then in the gov ernor's chair, obtained a commission, and left for his home in Ashtabula County. In three ami one half days from the time he left Montreal he had his company full and sworn into the United States service. That company he commanded in person until the battle of Phillippi ; when he was promoted to the Majority of the 1 Ith Itcgulars, which regiment he led at the battle of Gettysburg. The 11th was clow to the front, and lying under the lire of the enemy. The Major was standing lx-hind his command. Itchind him w as a large rock, and behind the rock a sharp sluioicr of rebel persuasion whom the Confederate General Wilcox kept upon his staff to pluck oil' our olli cers. A large rock on the rebel right of Hound Top afforded a safe cover for the Alahnmian, who, by the way, was considered one of their crack marksmen. Ho would load his rifle behind the rock, then jump on the latter and take deliber ate aim at any olliccr he could see on our line, then drop behind the rock again and reload. This he continued with fearful rapid 'y and precision. Major Giddings, being rather conspicuous, came in for a share of the rebel's attention. At last sick of the annoyance, he turn ed to the sharpshooter in his rea. " Here, you man with the tl -cope rille, can't von bring down th.t rebel rilleniau !" " Well, Major I'm trying to fetch him but it is a long range." " It is no longer for you than it is for him and if you don't shoot him he will shoot me," said the Major. " If it is all the same to you I'd rather you would shoot him." " Hut answered the soldier, "the Johnny has one of those long range English Whit worth rifles, and they enn beat ours in bearing up this distance." " Well," remarked the Major, "if you cannot hit him stop trying for' you will only draw his attention this way, ami if you don't stop it I'll shoot him myself." The soldiers and others in hear ing, smiled n t what they deemed the boastetig sccch of the Major. Just then, came a shot from the re bel sharpshooter, which completely shaved off one-half of the Major's moustache. ow this hurstitc orna ment was a particular pet of the Major; in fact, his moustache was his pride. Feeling something sting rather shnrnly in close proximity to his nose, lie quickly clapped his hand to the spot, and behold one half of his upier lip was shorn of its glory. To say that the Major was mad would be draw ing it rath er mild. Quickly snatching up a Spring Held lilln from of one hi men, ho dropped behind n rotten stump and NUMBER 19. literally laid low for rebel. In a few moment the game apjieared, and quickly drawing his piece to his shoulder he sent his ball crashing through the skull of the color cor poral, within three feet of the Major. Hut it was his last shot, for lieforc lie could again gain his covert the Major let drive, and the rebel was seen to toss his arms wildly, throw his ritie in the air. and fall headlong from his rocky ierch, as dead as Julias Ciesar. A stunning cheer from the entire line in sight of the rock greeted the Major's feat while he coolly proceeded to reload his rille. Just at that moment the relsd color guard came up to the rock close by where the dead sharpshoot er lay, and planted their colors bo side it. The Major again drop te I Ix'hind the rotten stump, he sends that color sergeant one, and the re lel Hag was brought again to the dust. Again cheers broke from our line. I!ut by this time the enemies' attention was attracted to this point, and a squad of sharpshooters was brought an as near our line as their cover would admit. Thev had evi dently sighted the Major's position, ('apt. CoiMiinger. of the Uth. who had been w atchiiiL' the movement on the part of the gray coats, sudden ly caueti out : " .Major, you bad better move off from that stump, for the enemy have got range and mean mischief." The Major moved some ten or twelve feet to the right, when whiz came a volley and some eight bullets passed through the rotten stump, directly in range of where the Major's heail was a few seconds before. He cool ly remarked : " A miss is good as a mile," and walked away. After the battle, the General commanding the division remarked: "That is the first time I ever saw a telescojie rifle beaten by a Springfield rifle at four hundred yards.

Somo one has said the sweetest word in our lan guage is Love. The greatest woitl in our langimge is Goil. The word expressing the shortest time is Now. The three make the greatest and the sweetest duty you can perform!" Young friends are you striving daily to perform that duty f Do you love God Now " A'oip is the'ac cepted time, now is the day of sal vation." If you love, God now, you will be more sure to love him al ways, and without loving him you an never be in heaven, and those alone who love God have holy hearts. Lore God now, and rcmeinlier this, that unless you do his w ill you cannot he sure that yon do love liim. Jesus said, " If ye love me, keep my commandments," ami those who truly love God will keep his com mandments, and try every day to please him. There is no siber evi dence that one loves God tha.i the fact that he tries day by day to per form faithfully tho little every day duties of life. Don't wait, young friends. God loves simple truthful obedience of young, warm hearts. So love him now .' Myrtle.
