We sat togeflier; you and I, " '
That evening In the nicutb of June,
Beneath (he jiorch ; the deep blue sky
Ilold tbe sharp crescent of the noon.
i:- So nilldly shone ber silvery light
; On the smooth lawn It seemed to sleep ;
Sweet odor tiled the Bummer night
- .. Frim fiagraut gardens ankle deep.
The honey-suckle, wet with dew,
Scattered her perfume on thealr;
fok galea from spicy woodlands blow,
And toyed each moment with yotir hair.
And now aud then the drowsy herd,
From meadow pastures far and near,
Lowed dreamily ; the startled bird
' Twittered the while; and sweet and clear
The murmur cf the cool, dark stream,
-Ihat woo'd with song tbe heart of Xifcht;
And through the Tinea a tiuaut beam
Of moonlight kissed your neck so bite.
. I held your tender hand we talked
About tbe future and tbe past;
Or sometimes down the path we walked
Bentath tbe lindens; till at but.
The moon sank in tbe violet ease, ' "
"Gliding the thin clouds as she went ;
And on the Inwn the thedes Increased
Till all In doubtful dusk was blent.
When anddenly upon tbe night,
Near where the tn'oon had sunk to rest,
K indled a strange, mysterious light
Urbir.d tbe ragged niouutaiu's crest.
And np the glittering arch of blue,
And far across the billowy plain,
As through Hie air the metosr fir,
A ball of Are with streaming mane.
flow wildly gleamed your startled eye,
How tight your fingers clasped my band,
As slowly in the western sky
It faded, leaving all the laud
To daikness and the silent stars!
Tbat night, upon my restless bed
1 teased, In dreams of cruel wars
And firhls of battle strewn with dead.
I arrived at Paris a perfect stranger, and
took lodgings at Maurice's famous English
btitt I. Having been shown to bit apart
ments, I made eotne change in my toilet, -
and went out lor a short Btroll in the great
and mngnificent city the heart, an it were,
of the world. I had some letters or intro
duction ; but. as 1 bed not jet presented
them." I believed myself wholly noknjwn
to a living soul in that metropolis except
it might he to the officers who bad read my
passport at the gate, and the clerk who
had seen me register my nnme ; and ttat
sail her should have fixed that name in their
recollection was something that modesty
had not permitted me to take ioto consid
eration. Judge of my surprise, therefore, when I
had gone but a few steps from Maurice's,
42 liue Rivoli, toward tbe beautiful puluce
gardens nearly opposite, to hear myself ad
dreese.d as follows :
'Will Monsieur Henry Neville Lave the
kindness' iG answer me a few important
, I turned to the speaker, ?cd saw at a
el ;nce he waa a total stranger to m that
1 bod never, to my knowledge, looked jtp
on the face before.
He was a middle aged man, of rather
prepossessing appearance, w ith gray hair,
eyebrows, and moustache, and was dressed
ae a plain, cuhstantial citizen.
I will do mj.v4b. tileoaure to oblige
ytu,' 1 replied, in a polite and courteous
ti-ne. 'Permit me first to remark, how
ever, that ynu have a little the advantage
of me, in that you already knew my rnme '
Monsieur will please know me 88 Eugene
St. Medard '
'lid we ever meet before?'
lt is Mansieur that has now become the
questii ner,' rf joined the Frenchman, with
a pecuHir smile and a kind of formal bow,
hulf dbnified, half polite, as if be would
have said I he questions were ody to couie
from his side.
Somehow I felt a trifle vexed and netilad
at the look and tone, and remarked a little
coldly :
1 take it for granted one has the same
right to interrogate as the other.'
Tbe features of the stranger grew grave,
a one who feels a litile aunnyed, and his
reply was impressive wubout being exactly
If Monsieur will be kind enough to
waive his rijht in this instance,' he suid.
'it will save us both some time and trouble '
I scarcely knew why perhaps some
thing in the look, tone, and manner but
the idea suddenly occurred to me tbat I
was speaking to a man in authority; aud I
aid, respectfully :
Proceed, Monsieur St. Medard.'
'Thank youf Monsieur. You are an
I am.
'You are distantly related to. the Earl of
Malvern ?'
So distantly that his lordship could nev
er get near enough to know our family,' I
replied, pleasantly, not a little surprised
that a French stranger should know so
ranch about me, and wondering all the
wbile to wbat resuha bis questions might
be tending.
'You were an only child ?'
Your parents are dead ?'
You were loft a email inheritance, which
yon bate lately converted into money and
brought with you, thinking it not unlikely
tbat you might take a fancy to settle on
tbe continent ?'
All true, Monsieur; tut your intimate
knowledge of me and my private affairs
astonishes me.'
)Let tbat pass. Tbe family of bis lord
ship, tbe Earl of Malvern, bas been unfor
tunate no near of kin remain to him V
Two profligate sons of a deceased sister
are the nearest, I believe.'
They are both dead. Monsieur.'
Dead !' exclaimed I, with a start ; for
this was news to me.
'One died of heart disease in Germany
tbe other was stabbed to death in Home. '
Are you sure?' ... .m.
t 'Certainly, Monsieur.'
'Uood heavens 1 this astonishes me still
more 1 1 had not beard of this.'.
'I know it.' .
It seems to me you know everything,'
said I, with a stare of wonde-.
- Monsieur St. Medard smiled, and then
eontinasd :
i 'You are cow the heir presumptive, Mon
sieur.' . 'If wbat yon tell me i true, I am !' ex
claimed 1, almost startled at tbe thought
of being so near to an earldom for the
then lord was eld and feeble, and .might
drop off any minute.
"Do you know who is next of kin after
yourself, Monsieur?' inquired my strange
interrogator.. ....
'I think I have beard it was William
Byerly.' ; .,
'Right. Do joo knew him?'
bometning by report.' , -Personally!'
, ,.,
.. 'No. . , . ,' . " .
Did report speak faTorallr of him ?'
I am sorry to say it did not.' - -'From
what you heard, do. yon consider
bim an honest man V -: -idojuot.'
j r V
'As you slope now stand .between him
and an earldom, after the death of the
present lord, woqld you consider your life
safe in his hands V
, 'Before I answer this question, - will you
permit ma to ask some two or three ?' said
Proceed, Monsieur.'
Ar you William Byerly ?'
Are you related to bim ?'
Are ycu a friend of Lis ?'
Do you intend to use my reply in a le
gal way ?'
Is yenr olject in these questions friend
ly to me ?'
Then I will vecture to say that I should
not like, under present circumstances, to
trust my life in the hands of William Byer
ly, provided there was a single chance of
bis escaping detection in case of wilful
Very well. May I now proceed ?'
'Yea, Monsieur.'
You will please answer to each state
ment of mine as if a question were directly
put. On your way to Dover a fellow trav
eller made your acquaintance.' , ' ,
Yea.' ' -; ' , . - ,
'You first saw him at Tornbridge.'
Yes.' "
'You noticed him while you were taking
some refreshments at a restaurant.'
Yes.' . . . . . . 4. .
'He C8me up alongside of you, having a
carpet-bng in his band and made some
commonplace remark about the weather.'
Yes,' I continued to answer, growing
more and more astonished every minute.
Wbat could it all mean? Had every
action of my life been noted ? And for
what purpose?
My strange interrogator nroceeded :
This stranger was dressed m a blue coat,
with brigla metal buttons, nankeen trous-.
ors, a buff vest, a porti-colored neckerchief,
a white hat and black boots.'
'lie had reddish bar, reddish whiskers,
a florid complexion, and wore 'a green
patch over bis left eye.'
After some common-place remarks, he
ventured to ask jou which way you were
You replied ycu weie going to Paris.'
'He was delighted to hear it, because he
wa going there bIso, and it was very
pleasant, in a foreign eountry, to have a
traveling companion from one's native
land.' Yes'
'On the whole, he made so favorable an
impression upon your unsuspicious mind,
that you was quite pleased to have bis
Oo your way to' Dover, be gaee you
some account of his past life of his triuls,
struggles, disappointments and successes.'
lie was an inventer, and a man of
genius, who hud lived to benefit munkitid
and himself. England owed much to him,
ard so did France; and so, in fact, did the
whi le world.'
'His statements were fo that effect
A ery well, Monsieur, as I have shown
yon tl.ut I know the rature of your conver
sation, it is nt t necessary that I weary you
with detail. This man, the inventer, wbb
goirg to Paris to take out a patent for a
new mi'i'e ppvrer one that was destined
to revolution.'ze the world. lie was very
sorry he could doi bIiow it to yau then, but
until tils ye per 8 et.ouM b-e fil.d in the
prcper department, he woulu not trust his
own father with t'ne secret.'
All correct, Monsieur.'
'Now, mod unfortunately, as it appears,
r n reaching Driver, where you were to take
tbe regular steam packet "for Calais, your
new acquaintance, in some woy unknown
to you, leceived the etortlicg intelligence
tnut Lis luther was lying nt the point of
death, which would require him to pout to
London immediately; and would you, in
whom he had every confidence, do him the
favor to take charge of a email box, con
taining some important papers, and on your
arrival in i tins, oj.eu it, and deliver them J
to the proper address?' j
Yes, Monsieur,' said I, becoming most
intensely interested.
Curiosity, Monsieur,' continued the
Frenchman, 'is not one of your failings, I
am happy to say, or you might not now be
living to hear what I have to reveal '
'Good Heaven !' ejaculated I, 'what is
coming now ?'
That eame box, Monsieur, is an infer
nal machine, intended to destroy your life
the moment you opened itl'
Gracious God !' I exclaimed with a thrill
of horror, 'can this be possible?'
'I will prove it. Get it, and come with
ine before a commissary of police.'
'Pray, Monsieur, who are you?'
A secret agent of police.'
I Hastened to get the box, handling it
with great care, and together we proceed
ed to the nearest commissary, when, with
roy perruisMon, it was split open, and lo !
to my astonishment and horrified gaze was
revealed i row of small loaded pistols, so
arranged that, had I unlocked and open
ed the box ir. an ordinary way, they would
have been discharged into my body.
On my subsequently asking for an ex
planation concerning this mysterious affair
bow so much connected with myself and
others bad become known to tbe police of
a foreign city the Teply was :
'It is not allowed us, Mousieur, to reveal
our sources of information. We are happy
to have thwarted the plans of a villain, and
saved your life.'
I never knew who that villain was,
though I always suspected Byerly of havs
ing a band in it. I do not know that my
life was again attempted; but certain it is
tbat 1 never again permitted intimacy from
ad unknown stranger. On mv accession
to tbe title and estates, which occurred the
following year, I did not forget to reward
Eugene St Medard, secret agent of police,
as I thought he deserved to be rewarded
for the preservation of my life. Aud to
this day I have not ceased .. to wonder over
the perfection of the French system of

The Model City of Keokuk.
- We have frequent opportunities of con
versing with persons who have recently
visited our neighboring city cf Keokuk,
and they all concur in representing it on
the decline.
Its present compared with its former
condition is a sulject of general remark.
The town is principally need for horpi
tals, and is, in fact, but little less than an
infirmary. '
The people in tbe adjacent country dread
it, and loathe its condition. ;
Within the few months past it has been
but little better than the scene of a contin
uous mob.
The Constitution newrpaper, withall
its valuable property was destroyed by a
The house of Judge Clogget, tbe editor,
has since been assailed by a mob, and mob
demonstrations towards it became or so
frequent occurence that it became unsafe
for him to remain in tbe place any longer,
and be left it for a more congenial loca
tion. The store of Mr. Hooper was beaten
down by a mob. .fur ae other reason than
that he was a Democrat, favor of sua,
taioiog the constitution and laws, and dar
ed so to speak.
Judge Mason bad to leave tbe city to
escape an attack by a mob.
Henry Clay Dean waa mobbed in tbe
city two or three weeks ago, and is still in
the hands of those who instituted the mob,
with the privilege of tbe Billings House on
port.lo, having been removed from prison.
Neither life, nor liberty, nor property is
safe in Keokuk.
Jiow, these mobs are not started by sol
diers They originate with the epitelul,
fanatical business men of the place, who
try to make custom or political capital, or
both, by their intolerant conduct.
But the eff'eot must always follow the
cause. Tbe town is miserably deserted.
The old, steady county seat of Fort
Madison is now doing more business than
Hancock county, which used to contrib
ute her tbousandn lo the business of Keo
kuV, has entirely diecontued trade with
tbat city.
Missouri whioh is pouring a vast run nf
trade into Blnomfield, Keosaqua, Ottumwa,
and Centreville, and other towns in Iowa
bordering on Missouri, has cea.-ed entirely
to deal in Keokuk. -
Her trade is ruined beyot.d tbe redemp
tion of a quarter of a century, if she ever
recovers tbe terrible effects of ber inrqui
ties. n
The mobs of Alton taught tbat city a
lesson. It was onoe a fair rival of tbe
city of St. Louip.
The mobs of Nauvoo laid that town and
Mormotiism in tbe same grave.
Any other people less fanatical than the
blind and stupid fanatics of Ksoknk would
have profited hy the example we have nam
ed. Everybody is leaving there tbat can.
Nobody buys, rents, or seeks property
there. So intensely are tbe people devoted
to free speech, that no city will prosper
where the press is not free. Tbe utmost
desolation of Keokuk adds another to the
list of melancholly examples that violence
resulting from intolerance or opinion and
its free expression will ruin any place. No
business or emigration can safely go where
free speech and a free press are not tolera
ted. The people will not tranact business
where they cannot do so in security. Keo
kuk sowed the wind. She is now reapir
the whirlwind. Quincy JfcratiL. f

Seme young ladies who had been attrnd- j
ii g us evi-ning party, oesirea to return
home, bet bad no male attendant. The
master of the house requested his son to
accompany them, end made use of a Scrip
ture name. What was it?
Jereboom Jerry beau 'em.
Jerry proving reluctant, the gentleman
desired another eon to act as escort. What
Scripture name did he utter ?
Lemuel Lm you will;
Still there was a difficulty, and a like re
quest was made in a similar manner to an
other son. Wbat was it ?
Samuel Sam you will.
Sam having consented, the parties took
their scats in a sleigh for the purpose of
going home, ltwastound that there was
plenty of room fur one more. What
Scripture name did the old gentleman use
to induce mother eon to accompany tbe
BenjRmin Ben jam in.
The driver was requested to start in an
other Scripture name. What waa it?
Joshua Josh away.
When the sleigh was faiily off, it was
discovered tbat one of tbe young ladies had
been left behind. There was no possibili
ty ol reaching her companions, so the old
gentleman asked stil another of his sons to
console the young Isdy for her disappoint
ment. What was the last Scriptual name
thus used ?
Ebenezcr Lben ease her.
How to Raise a 'Miss.' The folliwing
'recipe' is recommended to those husbands
who have a taste for an occasional domestic
scene :
Wait until your wife is at ber toilet.pre
paratory to going out. She will be sure to
ask you if her bonnet ia straight. Bemark
that the livee of nine tenths of women are
passed in thinking whether their bonnets
are straight, and wind up with the remark
that you nevei knew but one girl who had
common sense about ber.
Wife will ask who she was ? You, with
a sigh will reply :
Ah 1 you never mind.' "
Then wife will ask you why vou did not
marry ber ?
Xou say, abstractly, Ah 1 why indeed ?'
The climax is eeaobed by this time, and
perhaps, a broomstick is sure to follow 1

t I have no idea of entertaining yon as
tou have been for the last hour aad a half,
by the eloquence of one of tbe most elo
quent orators of the day; but I appear be
fore you fo talk plainly to you.' I see in
this crowd what gives me great pleasure.
In this immense gathering I see a great
many of your most prominent men. You
have fiot come, my fellow-cirixrns, for
hundreds of miles without eonte" purpose in
view, ,You have come here to testify yuur.
devotion to trie great principles laid dowq
in the constitution of the United States.
This is wbat lias-broaeht you here how. 1
Our government is from tbe people. It
is a government that requires frou ita citi
tens obedience to every law. It requires
you to abide by tbat law, whether you like
it or not. To do otherwise is open violation
egaiast tbe government, But,, my fellow
citizens, what is tbe remedy if bad laws are
passed t We seek tbat remedy at kbe ballot-box.
' Now, my friend, after having
passed over tbe duty of citizens, I desire lo
call youratteotion to the rights under the
constitution. What are thev ? A law is
passed which yon dislike. You say it is
unjust What do you do? ' You go to the
bellot-box. Who agree with you you send
to the State Legislature or Congress, and
they repeal these laws. Suppose that a
law is unconstitutional, it is vour duty to
bring the question before the courts of your
country, which are made ia. pursuance ef
the constitution to pass upon these ques
tions. When the courts bave decided tbem
unconstitutional, then the citizen must
obey. If tbe courts decide tbem uncon
stitutional, then they are null and void.
These are our duties, and these art our
Now, my fellow-eitizens. we have been
an if led by these cries for the Union. We
must preserve tbe Union at every hazard.
What does it mean ? We have got an hon
est constitntion Cries of "That's so", and
our Union is not made of territory only.
Are wa figbtiag for territory t Then it js
simply a war for conquest. But no, we
are fighting battles for the preservation of
the ever living principles cf the ci nitito
tion. 1 would not give the paper on which
tbat constitution is written, were tbe great
principles of that constitution to be stricken
out The great beauty of tbe American
constitution is, that it preserves to each and
very one to think as he pleases, to speak
as he pleases, and print wbat he pleaees,
provided he does not violate the law. If he
does, be is amenable to thelaw. We are
passing through a great struggle to' deter-'
nine tbe question whether constitutional
liberty shall still live and be maintained
upon this continent, or go down in dark
ness, in ruin and despotism.
What is tbe question before tbe Ameri
can people to-day. I call upon you to Dbey
the laws. But, for tbe great rights of coo
emotional oitizenship free speech, free
press, the liberty to bear arms, to be tried
by a jury of your countrymen let us all
perish as one man iu defence of tbem.

there any invasion, ia there any rebellion

when that great patriot, John J. Critten
den, came forward in tbe halls of Congress
to settle this question, the democratic party
(and myself) voted for the proposition: and
who else voted for it ? Evry single Union
man from the South. Ard who against it?
Evry single radical reprobate oftbe North,
and tbe fire eating men of, the Sooth;
They thought they would settle it for
themselves. Tnej thonght.tbey saw in the
distance the accomplishment or their own
design, but, before eonipromise.tbey would
make the banks of tbe Miaaissippl one
graveyard, and its stream a stream of blood.
Every democrat and every old-line whig
wants this reconciliation! "but no; it Is not
to be, they say; ? - .- -
Is this government Abraham -Lincoln'
government ? Cries of "No."J He is our
servsot. We are hiring him. and paying
him every day for it, to administer that
government; and, great God I bow dsea he
administer it 7 - -, , -
We want you toVettle the question, Jt is
the basis upon which tbe superstructure is
raised.- It is tbe foundation of the intelli
gence and patriotism of the country. Thee
were afraid to trust ycu. Why? Because
the hot heads of the South wanted war.Snd
so did those of tbe North, so as either to
set tbe negro free or partition the country.
When our brave sons were called upon be
battle-field, no democrat held back with
men and with money in 6apport!og this the
constitution; but Mr. Lincoln has laid aside
the constitution, and iafizbtiae on the out
side of it. . . 7
When we pointed" to them the grave
yards laid out, the dying and mangled
forms Upon the bi ttle fields. the shrieks
aud groan of widows end 'orphans iu this
country, they said we were not patriotic ;
we were traitora for that. The impartial
historian will show that it was the dison
Kinista of tbe South and tbe abolitionists of
the North upon whom rested the blame.
No, my friends; under the pretext of car
ing for the Union, I believe there is a stud
ied purpose upon the part of the leading
members of tbe administration to entirely
change, ths form of our government, and
raise uprn ita ruins a militarv dteputism.

Why do I believe an ? When this war
commenced, we had a divided South and a
united North. Why was t.e North united?
It was because the administration said tbat
tbe negro should be left out. The demo
crate ia Congress voted in favor of it to a
man. Wbat bas divided tbe North t Uas
it been the action of the democratio rortjf

Wbat was it done fcr i Who wsa it

Who introduced politics Into the army ?
ou in Illinois elected a democratio Leeis
,.at0Jre And hJ:d Dick tatesdW
And what did Oliver P. Morton, oflndi
ana.do? They started down into tbe army
t introduce politics Ictq the army. To
make it more efficient? . No. They went
to get up a political feeling there. Tbey
got their pi litieal resolutions passed, eus.
taming them iu power. The jarmr had
known nothing of tbeir actions. The people
repudiated them when tbey went down to
introduce politics into the army. ' Are the
democrats, then, responsible for dividing
this country? By no mean. Oh I aaya a
