Amy, little iliil I think, when I saw yon wedded to Henry Kingsley, Representative from Distiiet, New York, timt lie would crcr tnko vou to such a home 1" Ami whv not. mv sister T I knew that he was a fanner, nnd when I promised to bo his bride, I expected to bo a lurmers wire. Nor would I change my lot, if I could. I expect to be very happy there. All I shall miss will bo 'the loved ones at home I' nnd I could tot expect to carry them with me to my new home. ' But just think of it, sister J You, who have been rcated so tenderly, to work like Aunt Huehel, perhaps. I expect, if ever I como to see you, to find you milking tho cows, or feeding the pigs, or, at least, in the kitchen, cooking for great, hungry men, who do not know jelly from custurd. It is too bad!" And here Nelly broke down nnd so b bed outright. Amy tried to soothe her by telling her of her kind and noble husband ; nnd that he would not suffer, her to be uuhappy any. where. Hut she would not be comforted ; and when she met her brother-in-law at tea, her eyes were wet with weeping. Bho took, too, but little pttins to conceal the fact, that she thought him tyrant of the worst kind. He ascribed her strange mood to grief at parting with her only sister, ana, wnu true delicauoitaite no rcfoience to it. The next day Amy Kingsley went out from her old home to her new one, and from old friends to new and uutried ones. Nelly fretted herself really ill over the fancied unlmpptiups of her sister. And when letters came, bright, glowing, filled brimming lull of happiness, she was still unconvinced. "Oh ! yes 1" she paid to her mother, "I know how it is ! She is too noble to com plain ; nnd she kuew I waa bo troubled about her." . "But," said the mother, "she sends an in vitatiou, indorsed by her husband, to have you come and see for yourself." "Oh 1 1 should die. in a little while I know I should 1 But for poor dear Amy's suku I will go, nml stay na loug as 1 can, if you aud papa think best." They did think best. For the sisters hail never been separated before, and poor Nelly was nininor sadlv. The moruiny; on which she was to go, her mother came in and pro posed assisting her in packing her trunk. "A trunk, mamma ! A travelling bag will be all I shall need to take. I can put one dress in that. A home dress is all I shall want." But Mrs. Conway insisted, and a trunk was nicely packed, and, iu duo time, accom panied its fair owner to tho residence of the lion. Henry luugslcy. When the first warm greeting was over, Nelly looked around in mute surprise nt the luxurious surrouudings of her sister. Car pets, curtains, mirrors, puiutruga an supe rior to those in her father's house. And then a library I Tiers of choicest books. reaching from ceiltng to floor, were relieved by portraits, maps aud statues in every niche aua corner. "But there must bo a skeleton somewhere !" thought obstinate little Nolly as she followed her to bcr room, her ovn room, as Nelly insisted on calling it.. How sweet and pure it was with its whiteNind blue hangings, and bluo nnd buff carpet, with furniture to match I Aud then thoiu vases of violet snd mignonettes ! Amy knew she would miss them, And placed them there hcrselr. "It u nice, after all, Amy ! and I have been silly to worry about you I But," and she looked up and down the long, dusty road, eduetl witn creen ana snaaea wuu trees, "you must be lonesome ! I hero is no house near you, nnd but few in sight I" And the troubled look came back to the young face. "No, Nelly, I nra not lonesome. I have all the company I wish for, especially now since you nave come. But come, let me assist you. in laying aside this travelling dress, and show you into tho bath-room and then you must rest, while I go and pre pare supper for those 'great hungry meu.' " "Oh ! then you have to cook for the men, just as I expected !" And the tears came iuto the poor, tired eyes once more. "Yes, and I eat at the same tab with them, and I like it." . . .. i "There I Did I not tell you sot This comes of marrying a farmer I Poor Aunt Uacbel I When 1 used to pity her so 1 did not think my sister would have to drudge in the same manner." , "I do not peed a bit of sympathy I am just as bappy as I can be. But ceme, now, rest a little while, and then Uresa. I want you to look your beat. Did you brlog that blue silk I like so well I Ob. yes ! her it is. . Shall I send ranoy HD to belt) you I" , 'No, Amy, if the is your girl., and yo rnuat take her place u toe kittuea; "Now, don't fret any more, please and In half an hour 1 shall send Fanny." And Fanny came, and her nimble fingers Boon convinced Nelly that it was not new employment for her. When Nelly entered the parlor she found her brother-in-law wait ing to receive and welcome her; and then turniog, he introduced a brother to her, who was standing by his side. lie was a Bno-looking man of twenty-five, perhaps, nnd just the one tn mako an impression on a loving heart like Nelly's. The tea bell soon rang, and Nelly, taking Mr. Kingsley's arm, went out, dreading the staring eyes of the workmen. But the little tea table was laid for only four, and fairly glistened with its snowy napkins, lucid china nnd shining sil ver. Fanny, in a white apron, aud almost as white hands, attended the table; and Nelly gave a little sigh of relief as her last bugaboo vanished, and chatted, like herself, with her friends. "How do you like us in our home, Nel ly ?" said the husband, glancing at Amy. "Do we answer with your expectations of farmers ?'' Nelly was sure he was quizzing her, and answered with some show of spirit: "I think it is a sliar.e for a man of your talents nnd taste, yes, of wealth, to bury himself in such a solitary place its this! Why, 1 would not bo compelled to pass my davs hero for the world I" The happy couple only laughed, and Nelly began to think she was very silly, and laugh ed, too, nnd wished sho had been a little less demonstrative. After tea, the hushand proposed a walk in the garden, and here, as within the dwell ing, the most artistic taste marked every ar rangement. A perfect wilderness of flowers, and yet not a thing out of place. Nelly felt that she should never tire of its beauties; but Amy soon spoke of returning, as Nelly was quite weary. "And," aire said, glancing at her husbaud, "I shall want you to with me to milk the cows." "I shall do no such thing 1 Tho horrid things, with their great sharp horns nnd ugly feet. I always wns a fraid of them at Aunt Rachel's. One of them enmo at me once, and would hnve bit mr, if I had not screamed loud enough to scare her nway. Aunt said it was tho clover blossoms I had in my hand that she wanted, and not me ; but I did not think so. At any rata; I have hod a perfect antipnthy for cows und clover blossoms ever since." Henry laughed. "Well, if yon are so afraid of cows, Amv need not go for them nor milk them to-night !"' Nelly knew they were laughing nt her again, and, looking up, she saw a pair of magnificent eyes, brimming with mirth, fixed upon her; and her own eyes and chcekB burned until they pained her. As soon ns she reached the house she hurried away to her own room to give vent to her outraged feelings. But Amy suspected her, aud quickly followed to find her in tears. "This is too bod 1 Poor, tired Ncllv ! 1 did not dream that I was grieving yon." "Oh ! I do not mind you, Amy, nor your .husband ! But tho great, overgrown bro ther, who don't even speak to me, but if he dared would laugh at me all the time I don't liko him one bit !" "Oh 1 don't say so, Nelly !" lie is tho kindest, best brother in tho world ! You must like him for our sake. And now I will tell you about our arrangement here. We have a large farm, with none of its cares or, at least, 1 have none. Tho land is nil rented to four men with families. You can see their pretty cottages from the door, all built on the farm. Half of the property be longs to Arthur, and ho lives with us, as you see. We keep three servants, and they are excellent, attending to everything that servants should attend tn." "But where arc those great hungry men you spoke of?" "Dtd you not ace them at the table I Henry and Arthur? They are large, and usually hungry." "And tho cows? Was that, too, a joke on poor mc ?" "Yes, darling. I could not milk a cow any more than you could." "Well, 1 forgive you all ; but tbut brother I must punish him !" "Well, come now, we must go down.- Have you any new music ?" "Some, if mamma has packed it. Do vou know thut I was only going to bring one dress? But here is the music.' They descended to the parlor. A lino toned piauo was soon answering to the touch of Nelly, and iu the music she sunn forgot her previous annoyance. She was a superi or performer, and on so tare an instrument she surprised even herself. The husband was not sparing of his compliments, but Arthur made no comments, except to thank her for oue piece he himself culled for. Before she slept that uight, Nelly wiote a long letter to her mother, telling her of Amy's pleasant and happy home. "But, oh I so lonely. I could not live here, I am sure ! But Amy certainly enjoys it. I don't believe she needs me a bit. Thev are both as contented as two kittens. I shall not stay long," etc. All this amused her mo ther, for sho had been reared in tho country, ana bad not leared her practical Amy when she consigned her to the keeping of Henry lungsley. But weeks passed away, ana still Nelly lingered in her sister's beautiful home. She had ceased to bo afraid of cows, and chick ens were becomirg nets. She went with her sister to visit all the tenant houses, con versed with the parents, and told the chil dren stories, until all united in declaring that "the heautilul city lady was not one bit proud." The brother sometimes accom panted them in their rambles, opeutng gates, letting down bars and carrying par cels, and usually returned with - a perfect mountain of flowers, plucked by the bauds of bis companions. With Amy he was al ways gay, laughing and social, coaxing her into grapevine tangles and blackberry thick ets, alter birds nests ol violets ; ami then, after making merry at her plight, taking her in his great arms and placing her on the open cround. But with Nelly he was al ways reserved, and sometimes he was just a little abrupt. Us never sought her society, and if they chanced to bo left alone, he was coiuiy pome. And yet there were times when she was nviiKilnr Ui ill, Ilia l,rntli.,r that alio Ulruilit conversing with his brother that she would look up and find bis great earnest eyes fixed upon her, and her heart would thrill like a flower with a humming bird in it bosom ) and then, with one of his abrupt movements, he would turn away, chirping to the canary, pulling bounce's ears ; or perhaps he would go and teaze sister Amy awhile. Mr. Kings ley, the elder, was proud of bis handsome brother, and knowing his passionate love of beauty, ha wondered mucu that he did not seem more attracted by the beautiful Nelly. That she was a dear, good girl he was sure, and their evident dislike to each other puz. tied and e?eu pained him. la the presence of others and they had many visitors while Nolly was there they were studiously polite, but in the family circle Arthur, at least, was sarcastic. But a message came to Nelly, recalling her home for a visrt to the sea-side. "Oh 1 if you could only go with us, as in tho olden times, Amy. I declare, Henry, I am Afraid some dreadful punishment will be inflicted upon yon for taking Amy from irs," and tears came into her eyes and color in her cheek. "What can it be, little sister ? I have had nothing but blessing since I took her; and last, but not least, has been your visit." "Thank you ! And that reminds mo of the way the nourishment is to como. I shall bo an old maid, nnd come and live with you, cuts, parrots and all !" "What 1 on a farm, Nelly, where you would bo buried alive 1" "Don't sister, please 1 I am ashamed of all those silly epceclies. Y'our homo is a perfect parndise, and I could stay here with you, Amy, forever, nnd not be lonely. . And then, I did not know of the pleasant friends you have all around you." Anthur seemed to be reading, lut the leaf he was turning trembled iu his fingers strangely. Nelly was to go to the cars the next moruing, and toward evening she went out to see her pets onco uroro. Bho took Borne bread cruins and salt, and made her way to the chicken coop. But the careful mother had tucked her little family nice away to sleep, and gave a spiteful little chir-r-r, as Nelly ofi'ered the crumbs. "That is tho way," she said bitterly, "uud they will all forget me ns soon as I am gone." But her heart warmed up again, as her little white friends, the lambs, came running to meet her, rubbing ngainst her, and eating tho salt from her hand. "Good bye!" she said, patting their soft heads. " Vou will not forget me, ij all the rest do!" nnd turning to go, she found herself face to face with Arthur Kingsley. It was tho first time he had ever Bought her, and she stood embarrassed and confus ed. Pardon me," he said, gently, "if I intrude; but the dew is falling. Here is your shawl. "Will you permit mo i" and he laid the shawl carelessly ncross her shoulders. Why did Nelly feel faint and weak for an instant, as those hands lingered about tho duty they were performing? "And he heard mo talking like a buby to those lambs," she thought, as she turned to go She took his proffered arm, and they re turned by a more circuitous route than she had come. Twilight wns deepening into darkness, ns they stood by the hall door. But few words hud been spoken by cither ; but now Anther said, while bis arm tighten ed on tho little hand, "Will you not visit the garden as well ns your pets?" Nelly looked up. Was ho teasing her about the lambs ? But no ; these eyes were earnest now. She made no reply ; she daic not trust her voice, but walked as he led to a garden chair near tho fountain. She was clad ho had selected that chair ; for tho thrill of the water as it fell in the marble basin, broke a silence that was becoming j painful. 'And you leove us to morrow ? uo you ' regret it, just n Itttle, or were you jesting when you said you could stay here tor Amy s sake!" Sho did not answer. "May I sit by you while I tell you a story ?" he asked. Sho made room for him by her side, nnd be began : "I nm a farmer by birth and education. This farm, with all its broad acres, belonged to my father and his father before him. When my tather died it was left to Ili nry and mc, with an injunction that it should not pass trom our hands while we lived. And it is no restriction, for we both love the old place. When Henry brought his city wife home, I expected to hear complaints and repining. But, bless her loving heart t she made us all so happy I She told us of your horror of the country, and, when you came, you corroborated her testimony. But I loved you, Miss Nelly, from the moment I saw vou, and have been tugging at the chain that held me ever since you came. And to day, when you said what you did, I wns tempted to do this net. W ill you come tor tuv sake, for my love, Nelly ? Be my own sweet wife ? And be loved as woman was never loved before ?"' For an instant nothing was heard but the fountain ; and then a little hand was laid softly in his, nnd sho answered, in words bo low that no one iiut a lover could Uave uecn sure of them, "I will come for your sake !" As they stood in the hall, Nelly whisper ed, "Don't tell Heury and Amy now : for they willtcasome." "Jy pay, tten," and he stooped for the first kiss from tho lips ot his betrothed. Arthur followed her to the sea-side, where he had no difficulty in obtaiuing the cou sent of the parent tn the union. The com ing spring saw Nelly a loving wife, in a dwelling that had sprung up as if by magic, nearly opposite to the one occupied by her sister. And if she reads this story she will laugh as she recalls her positive assertion, "I will never marry a farmer 1" Mini! the Ilnuocrulic IurlylIveor die? .Mr. Naxby glveis blat VIw on the SubJH'l. CoNFEDlUT NOAM "1 (wich is in the Stait uv Kentucky,) November 20, 1868. J The papers uv the country are very gener ally dibcussiu the question : "Shel the Dem ocratic party live or die," wich when we take into considcrasben the fact that the corpse is afore us, seems to me holler mock ery, and a heartless trillin with the feelins uv tho friends uv the deceast.

The Chicago Times and various other pa pers are advocatin the ikee uv floppin over to nigger suffrage. 1 bev let my Websterian intellek lite onto this subjek at various times, and the more I hev considered it, the more I am satisfied that it wont do.

The poor fellow, not seein it was a joke, took an ounce or two; and need I state the result? He sleeps in the valley. Nigger suffrage, wich is rank pizen, wood end the troubles uv the Dimocrisy ; but wouldn't it end Dimocrisy also t We mite die grace fully et Dimocrats, but wood our resurrec tion es Abliahinists be eortalnt Woodn't tbt people, when we are wuust entombed, forget to awaken us 1 My objections are these: : - 1. We can't gobble Ablishea votes with nigger suffrage, for the reason that ef the people deains it they'd "probably go to the inventcrs thereof, that they mite beashoorcd ti v gcttin the gennoine article. 2. We can't get the nigger after he is man and brother. The Times idee is, we'd ketch 'cm on the score that the trash naturally gravitates tn us. We are too late for this. The nigger jus now is lookin op not down: and ef the tux wns taken off uv whiskey, so ez to bring that essensliel to Ditnocratic success wunst more within our means, and we shood devote ourselves euthoosiastically to the work, we woodn't be able to get 'cm down to our level in twenty years. Afore that time I shel hev gone into that other wcrld wher pollytix won't trouble me, nnd ef the orthodox relijus bclccfs uv the day is correct, in the department uv the tothcr world in wich I shel pull up, there will be a strong Dimocralic majority. Ez I lift up my eyes from thnncc, it will do mo no pertikcler good, ez I know uv, to be told that tho Ditnocricy hev elected thcr Presi dent by nigger votes thBt intelligence woodn't supply the place uv the water I shood be callin for. Its instant releef we need, and cf life is ever pumped into the carcass afore us, it must be done to wunst. 1 havo an ideo for the sal vation dv the parly, wich, cf acted on, will give us a lease uv power for twenty years Mkxko. Here is suthin feasible. Let tho South adopt the Constooshnel Amendment to wunst, providin Congress will knock out tho third section wich disfranchises the heft uv us who ore fit for Congress, and also repeel the test oath, and immejitly let John sou annex Mexico. How will it stand, then? Wo hev ten Slates out, wich we kin depend upon. Kentucky, Delaware nnd Maryland moke thirteen, and Mexico kin bo cut up into twenty more, or thirty for that matter, given us a clean majority in the Scuit, House and Electoral College. I hev let my intcllek out onto this Bubjcck and aint mistaken. In Mexico is the precise populashcn we kin best work upon. "They can't understand our speckers," Fez one objector. Very good. I ndmit it, and what do we want uv voters who kin understand us? The downfall uv Dimocrisy commenst, tho mintt the people begun to understand us. So long ez they take things on trust, it wuz all right, but when they begun to question, the jig was up. Intelligcnse is a good thing iu the ab stract, but you must be modrit in its yoose. Enuffuv us wood hev to emigrate thither uv coorse, to bo scut back to Washington. Seward aud I, for instance, wood go to the Scuit from Chihuahua, Doolittlo and Dr. Olds, nv Ohio, from San Juan, Henry Clay Dean nnd Cowan from Tamaulipas, .lohn Morrissey nnd Randall from Matamoras, Vu landigham and Slocum from Tehuanlepec, Custer and Beecher no they've gone back on us Jim Steed mau and Jesse D. Brite, from Puebhi, et settry, There wood be room for every ono uv the leadin Dimocrats North in these States. Ther wood be sixty seats in the Scnit and three hundred in the House to be filled, be sides tho State ofilsis. The hundreds uv thousands uv Dimokrats now mourniu for offisis, nnd who can't be supplide, wood States turned over to us with a people wich coodn't compete with us for the oftisis. My nere nnu npcnins. litrnK uv it I l uirtv sole expands with the thot. Tho field wood be a rich one for Androo Jason Rocers to stump, for the people, not understaudin a word uv wnt he wuz a savin, and hevin a high opinion uv the Amerikins, wood think he wuz t ul kin sense! And His rggslcncy the President ! wat a chance it wood bo for him ! He cood hev Duglis dug up and re buried at Monterey, bo ez ho cood hev a cx coose for makin a toor to his tomb, or, cf the friends uv the statesman objected to that, he cood go to Chicago by the way uv the City of Mexico, nnd cood mako his speech at the way stations through that country without fear. The Mcxikins wood reserve the constatooshus and stars gladly, and ez they don't understand the language they woodn't receive his speech with peals uv lafture ez they did on his late mnmorable toor thro Noo York , Ohio. Michigan, lib : noy, ct settry, the remembrance of wich, even at this day, sends a thrill uv anguish thro the Presidcnshel I ires t, which even tho triumf in Delaware and Murylaud cannot and docs not soothe. The people uv tho North wood recceve the propoaishen gladly. I menshuned the mat ter to a leaden merchant uv Philadelphia, who hed just declined to give six months' credit for a small stock uv goods to a friend uv mine on my endorsement, but who in the most gentlemanly manner expressed a wil lingness to sell for cash, nnd he warmly ap proved uv it. "Go," sed he, "aud ef it will work ez yoo say and take them incubtisses out uv this country, I think I kin not only promise yoo the copcrashen uv the people uv the North, but also money ennlf to pay yoor fares to the land uv yoor choice." And he bust into leers. "Wat are yoo weepiu for ?" sed I, aston ished. "Those tecr," sed he, "arc from Mexico. Sho hez endoored much, but her cup uv woo is not yet full." This is the only hopo uv tho Democrisy. The people hev bin brought face to faco with slavery, aud they smasht it.

An incident which came to our knowledge yesterday, however, is an exception to this rule, nnd is therefore deserving of mention, especially ns it may serve to assure others that it is well to "try all things, and hold fast to thot which is good." A Mr. W. P. Dale, of New Y'ork, having business in the West, reached Hamilton, nnd, after transacting his business there, got or. the Chicago and Cincinnati train for a point further up. There were but two cars a la dies' car, so called, and a smoking car into which Mr. Dale was obliged to go,the brakes man refusing him access to the ladies'.car. He appealed tn tho conductor, whose name is Cooper, but he sustained the action of tho brakesman. Mr. Dale asserted his right to a seat iu the first class car on his first class ticket, and refused to give it up until he re ceived what he was entitled to, whereupon the conductor called the workmen on the train to his aid, aud forcibly ejected him from the train. Instead of going on the succeeding train, Mr. Dale came to this city, and, going tn tho office of the Chicago and Cincinnati liuilroad , made a statement of his cose. The company acted promptly in the matter discharged the conductor aud compensated Mr. Dale for his loss of time, and decided, besides, that the holder of a first class ticket has the right to a scat in a first class car. Advice to "Green" Skater. Now that the skating mania has broken out with vio lence, an exchange takes occasion to print the following directions for new beginners. 1. Never try to skate in two directions at once. This feat has often been attempted by new beginners, but never bucccskI'uIIv. It always ends in sorrow. 3. Eat a few apples for refreshment sake while skating, anu Ihj sure to throw the cores on the ice, for fast skaters to break their shins over. Fast ska ters are your natural eneuries and should not be allowed to enjoy themselves peaceably. 8. Sit down occasionally, no matter where right in the way of the rest of the party if you want to. There is no law to prevent a new beginner from sitting down whenever he has nn inclination to do so. 4. When you meet a particularly hnudsomc lady, try to skate on both sides pf her at ouce. This is very pretty nnd sure to create a sensation. It the lady s lug brother is in sight it is well o omit this. 5. Skate over all the small boys at once. Knock 'em dowu. It makes great fun, and they like it. 0. If you hkate nto a hole in the ice, take it coolly. '1 lank how you would (eel if the witter w as boiling hot. If your skates are too slippery buy a new pair. Keep buying new pairs until you nnd a pair that are not slippery. 1 ins win bo fun for the dealers in skates. 8. In kitting down, do it gradually. Don't be too sudden, you may breuk the ice. 9. When you fall headlong, examine the straps of your skates carefully before getting up. This will make everybody think you fell because your strap was loose. Beginners always do vou know. 10. Wenr a heavy overcoat or cloak until you get thoroughly warmed up, and throw it off, and let the wiud cool you. This will insure a tine cold that will last you as long as you live. 11. After vou get so vou cau skate tolerably well, skate yourself sick im mediately. Don t be reasonable about it ; skate three or four hours skate fanatically skate until you can't stand up. Do this every, and it'will be suro to make you sick at least ; nnd then you may die, and that will le an excellent thing ; it will be such a good example to the re. I of tho young peo ple. A few simple directions lor lady skaters are added : 1. If you wear titters on the ice be sure that your calves are properly adjusted. The spectators along the banks are generally critical. 2. Scream prettily in passing an air hole, and give tho arm of Charles Au gustus a lrantic squeeze, It makes him feel Ins oats in a pmtcctmuul wuy. a. it your skating partner is eligible, and your foot is pretty ; don't hesitate aland asking him to adjust your skate straps every ten minutes. lie will rather like it. . . m m m i. i Madame Montholon, wife of the French statesman, is a native of St. Louis, and was origiually a Gratiot. AGRICULTORAL, &C. The Ghai'K Citltukk. Some ot our most intelligent aud experienced grape growers are coming tn the conclusion that there can bo no deunitc rules laid down lor the culture of outdoor grapes. This is the wisest thing we have yet seen in regard to thisquestiou. It comes up very much to what we have long believed. 1 Irere are cer tain general rules to follow which no one neglect who knows anything about grapo growing ; but alter lliMt uach one must de cide fur himself the soil, exposure, trellis, variety of grape and general culture. Aftor a fair trial he will socn discover the best grapes for his soil and the best management. If be follows the multitude of directions to be found in voluminous communication iu some of our horticultural journals, or innu merable books which make the subject a specially, he will be sure tn "put his foot into it," and have his labor fur his pains. We have some "crack grapes," that have been planted tor years in carefully prepared places that give no indication yet ot either growing more than about a foot or two a year, or of bearing, though they stand sido by side other vines that are vig w.ius growers and productive learer.
