"What makes you iu lato to-nlglit, Tracy?"
Frank Tracy laughed ami reddftiuti a lit
tle as hia room mate, Howard Leigh, care
leaaly put the qtiustioti.
"Blushing, eh 1" puraued the latter, with
it spico of uiischiuvous malice in bis voice ;
"then ol course I nin to conclude that you
hnvu been in the charming society of some
"Your guess is partly right." said Tracy,
lightly, "but the lady ik a very little lady.
To tell you the truth, I have been spend inn
the evening ut Mrs. Waltong, and playiug
with that cliHitniug baby of hers. I never
saw such a Hebe in my life. Why I could
have sat ior hours with that buby on my
"Then I am Io conclude that she neither
chewed your cravat ends nor jerked at your
watch chain to say nothing of crying."
"Nut a bit of it. She's the most perfect
little piece of llcsh and blood I ever saw in
my life; if I thought she would grow up
Imlf as pretty a she is now, upon my lite
I'd wuit for her."
"And what would Leonore Warren say ?"
"Ah, what, indeed ! I- am glad you've
recalled me to loyalty, though certuinly Le
onore can't very well be jealous of my tiny
Hirtutiuiis with Mrs. Walton's pretty baby.
Ufigho, I sometimes think I have made a
mistake in engaging myself to Leonore War
ren. She is us beuutiful as un angel, unci
yet somehow we don't seem to bo conge-
Until tr lute to think about that, I should
iiiiHgme, when the wedding day is fixed
and pusaage taken in the Europeau ateuuier
for the wedding tour. By the way, Frank,
bow long shall you remain in Europe ?"
"I can't say, some years I believe. Leon
ore thinks a residence in Paris would be de
lightful. I tlon't agree with her; but brides,
you know, are privileged to have their own
wuy. I'll tell you w hat, Howard, the pret
tiest coral in Naples shall be sect to hang
around the ivory ueck of Mrs. Walton's
"Frank, how fond j ou are of children."
"You're wrong there, my boy ; I am nut
l'o nd ol children, generully speuking, but I
don t know who could help loving luut lit
tle browu eyed seraph."
Frank took up the newspaper as he spoke,
and the conversation gruduully merged into
the ull entrancing subject of politics, foreign
Twenty years have ebbed und flowed iu
the bioud chutitiel of time, und Mr. and Mrs.
Tracy had just taken possession of their
elegant home niter a long residence abroud.
It was evening. The gilded clock oil the
in nut el pointed to the hour of seven, the lite
burned clearly in the ornamental grate and
the tl'iWfM in the several vases on each side
of the chiinuey piece were scarcely hnighter
in their hues than the pictured blossoma on
the superb velvet carpet. Frank Tracy, who
Imcl chungud from a handsome youth into a
tall s ateiy man of ubout torty, stood
thoughtfully lu-foru the fire, while his lan
guid, laded looking wife, reclined on the
sofa iu the lustrous shining of the glowiug
chandeliers. There was only cue guest pre
sent to break the luouolouy of the conjugal
tele-a tele, he was our old acriuuiuluucu
"I do wUh, Frank, you wouldn't keep
drumming with your lingers on that man
tle, it makes tne so uervous, but of course
you don't care lor that," excluiuied Mrs.
"I beg your pardou my Into; I was uot
aware it wus annoying you."
"Why don't the servant bring the choco
late ?" pursued Mrs. Tracy, clcvutiug her
"Shull I ring and inquire?"
"No, it isn't worth while. If we had ou
ly remained in la I tile Pari, whcie the
servants understood their btihiuekb."
"Then you preferred Paris as a residence,''
' Oh, by ull means, but Frank never could
be contented there. It is the most absurd
whim of his, returniug to America."
"You forget, Leonore," said Frank, some
what gravely, "that America is home."
Mrs. Tracy tossed her he.td aud took re
fuge iu a bottle of smelling salts. Her hus
band turned carelessly to Leigh and resumed
the conversation that her petulance had dis
turbed. "I haven't asked yet whether my old ac
quaintances, the Waltou's,are living or dead.
You huvo not forgotten my penchant for
the beautiful baby ?"
"Oh, the Walton disappeared long ago
from the current of New York life. He
failed or something blew out his brains, I
believe. He died of a broken heart. La
Uellu was sent, I understood, to an orphuu
asylum, where she has sprouted up into a
gavt ky, red haired woman."
Tracy was silent a moment, contcmplutiug
upon the sad fucility with which people
slip from the cures and memories of their
friends in the whirl of huge cities.
All at once the door was thrown open and
two or three rosy little children came bound
ing into the room, w ith long shining curls
hanging on their white shoulders, aud their
eyes all iu a sparkle with iufuuliue tucrri-in-
"Don't come near me, you noisy little
hi nti-rs," lisped Leonore, waving them
.. -nil lu-r snowy jeweled lianas; -you
rtiiciiish my silks and lao-s ruinously."
No word of reproof fulU'rotn the lips of
Frank Tracy, however, as the little ones
climbed on his knees and (hung around hit
neck. Those children were the sunshine of
his life; be endured his wife, but idolized
Poor Tracy, it's quite plain to tee that
he is not happy," said Leigh that eveuing
as he was tukiug his ease with bUcosy home
circle. "That wile ot bis is enough to drive
a man distracted. 1 wonder that he dou't
And so some day afterwards, when the
sudden death ot Mrs. Tracy was announced
in the newspapers ailoieat, diaease of the
heart hia first thought was
"What a lucky ihiug for Prank I"
It was scarcely a year after Mrs. Trary's
decease, and the widower was sitting alone
io hie study, when Howard Leigh wa au.
"Well, my dear frieud," was hi suillini
salutation, "what news do you bring me I"
-Capital newt!" said Leigh. "Do you
know I've just engaged yoa splendid gov
ernes for your clitioren i
"I ain heartily glad of it ; tbe little rebels
are getting quite beyond my management.
They need oine gentle, ailectiooato female
"And they will Iibto it. This is one of
lit u6t trl 2 h tu f" l"nj time j
she has been teaching in the acadumv. but
thinks she should prefer a situation in some
private family. She is all grace and gentle
uiguiiy a jewel oi a governess."
"I am delighted at your success. When
will she come to take charge of my child
"This evcuinir. But I hadn't told you tbe
Birnugeei cuiuciuonco ol all. Wno do you
suppose that she is ?"
"I'm sure I can't imacino.
"Her name is Atrnes Walton; she is the
same whom you took such fancy to in the
days of your boyhood. I can tell you she
dou't know you were on old beau of hers,
else she would shrink from assuming this
il-s)iiihiuii: Riiuniion in your taniiiy. '
"Nonsense" said Tracv. half lauirlilntr
half embarrassed. "But I am sorry she is
reduced to the wretched life of a governess."
Nothing more was said ou the subject,
and several times that altcrnoon it recurred
to Frank Tracy's mind. He wished he could
The gas bad been lighted, however, and
the little girls were safely tucked iu bed,
after having said their prayers ou "papa's"
knees, before the governess was announced.
"Miss Walton, pray bo seated."
He saw at the first glance that the pretty
baby had grown to be au exquisitely lovely
girl of twenty-two, with soft tender eyes
like a Madonna, and sad, quivering lips.
Poor Agues she has been so much accus
tomed to rebuffs aud cold neglect at the
hands of the world, that Mr. Tracy's chival
ric politeness affected her nearly to tears.
He noticed it ; he observed the delicate,
ahy refinement, and the timid glances from
beneath her lashes. Frank Tracy was a
great physiognomist, and drew his own in
ferences from these things. After a few
gentle questions he asked :
"But, Miss Walton, why did you leave
the academy t"
"The principal was harsh and unkind to
tne, and the place was noisy. O, sir, if you
knew how I have hungered and thirsted for
a quiet home !"
"My dear Miss 'Walton," be said, "I com
missioned my friend Howard Leigh, to find
a governess for me, but I am in much more
need of a wife. I think you would suit uie
in that capacity. Will you accept of the
home as a permanent engagement, and tne
as tbe encumbrance thereof "
Agnes looked a moment into bis kind ,
eyes and placed her little hand confidingly i
iu Ins, and said, "1 will 1"
And thus concluded their extremely brief
courtship. Yet when Frank told her of tbe
many years he had secretly worshipped at
the shrine of "Mrs. Walton's pretty baby,"
she didn't think it so very strange after all. I
Thus it was that Frank Tracy married his
beautiful second wife, and the little ones,
instead of a governess got a mamma, w hom

The Eruption ol Veauvluai.
A letter from Naplts, dated November
SO, gives the followiug particulars of the
eruption of Vesuvius :
During the last two years a small cone has
been formed by the matter giadually ejected
from this sulphurous hole; we could scarcely
see its bead above the walls of the large
erater, but w ithiu the lust week, like some
presumptuous stripling, it has shot up above
its venerable parent, and this it is which bag
been fuming and spluttering and storming
with all the arrogant impudence of youth
since last Weduesday. It has sent forth an
immense quantity of lava, converting the
surrounding crater into a lake of fire. At
first the high circling walls kept it within
bounds, but gradually it has risen until it is
now flowing in several directions where tbe
abrupt and irregular wall admits of a pass
ago. Ascending by the usual road, we were
compelled, on approaching the summit, to
skirl a little round to the southeast, for two
reasons first, to get on the blind side of the
wind,, which might have brought down
upon us an inconvenient shower of stones ;
aud, secondly, to obtain a better view of the
main stseuiu, which as fed, not only by the
great crater, but by another orifico opened
outside, about twenty tt-et iu diameter. From
this spot the stream of living fire, full twenty
to thirty feet in width, poured down to the
bottom of the mountain rapidly where it met
with uo obstacles, and v. here it did struggled
energetically uutil it carried everything be
fore it. To ihe edgo of the crater it was
impossible to approach; the heat was scorch
ing; and what would have been the cou se
quences had the lava boiled over and came
down upon us? It was difficult, therefore,
to form any fair estimate of its size, but one
might have supposed that it was uot over
seventy feet in diameter. It was not a mo
ment, however, for figures, when nature was
exhibiting her power in one of its grandest
forms. There was a roar and a chock, and
then shot forth flames and stones full cue
thousand feet in height, at intervals of from
one to five seconds, according to the watch
of one of the party. These treiueudous con
vulsions were repeated, and then came tbe
descending shower, composed of stones of
various sizes, some certainly half a ton in
weight, judging by the bulk. We could
mark their course by the eye as long as they
retaiued their red beat, but on approaching
the earth they blackened, and then the ear
alone could tell what was spotting and pit
ting tbe earth arouud.

A C'beerful Old Age.
Bishop Morris, senior bishop of the
Methodist Church, sends to the New Orleans
Advocate, from hit home io Springfield, O.,
the following interesting autobiographical
"I was worn in Kanawha county, Virginia,
April 28, 1794 ; joined the Methodist Church
in August, I8ia, and received the full spirit
of adoption on Christmas following. I was
licensed to preach April, 1814, employed ou
a circuit by a presiding elder in 1815, and
received as a travelling preacher on trial by
the Ohio Conference in 1816. After a cam

"The siles of our large and flourishing
towns in the est were then in the wild
wood. Our log cabins are superseded by
respectable dwellings of brick, and our log
meeting houses by respectable church edi
fices. As to our numerical strength, the
Methodist Episcopal Church has more than
quadrupled in my day, with financial ability
in proportion. My early contemporaries are
mostly gone. I have great grandchildren
ranging from four to eleven years old. Under
these surroundings, it begins to be whispered
around that I am an old man. Pet-baps it
is so, but I don't feel old. It is true, I have
some physical infirmities, but my spirit is
buoyant. I love life as well a I ever did,
and might enjoy it as well if able to be active
in the ministrv. If'l -u. ..-. .,

rVoble'a lMclure of John Brown ou
tbe Wuy to Execution.
We fiud tbe following allusion to Noble's
picture of "John Brown on hia Wav to r.r.
ecution," in the Chicago Tribuno, whose
editor bas recently visited New York aud
seen the pictuie, which is now on exhibition
in Boston ;
"'John Brown's lnl ..,..1
tlie grave, bis soul is marching on.' Noble's
great picture of John Browu on the way to
execution, which is pronounced by compe
tent judges to be the lineal work of art ever
produced in this country, has received the
m ue Bnu BOiie to Boston to bo
exhibited. The sceue is from WbittirrV
well-remembered poem, where the old mau
puts his hand on tbe bead of a alave-child
held up to him by it mother, as be moves
toward tbe gallows. The benignity of
Brown's countenance is said to be something
sublime. There are fifteen or tweuty figures
on tbe canvas all of them wonderfully ex
pressive. What is, perhaps, most singular
about it, is the fact that such a picture
should have been painted by an ex-soldier of
the Confederate army.
"It seems to have been reserved to Mr.
Noble to illustrate upon canvas tbe life, the
struggle and the hideous death of American
slavery. Born on a Kentucky plantation,
reared among the subjects of his easel, a
pupil of the great Couture, a soldier of four
years' service to the principles into which
be was born, but which ho bas learned to
abhor, a man of deep religiou feeling an J
singular beauty and purity of privato life
his name is already associated w ith the most
memorable transactions of the age."

until then, willfhe country have peace.
We dou't ask for social equality. I never
saw that white woman yet that looked so
well, in luy eyes, a a good brown colored
wouiau. Aud if it wasn't so, we don't need
their social equality, because our friends,
the w hite folks, have kindly managed it so
that we have every shade to choose from,
from tbe deepest iet black to the purest
white. Luughtcr.J And, as there are no
ladies preseut, allow me to say that the
practice of social equality has not been on
our tide, but ou the part of the whites, who,
in their dark and devious ways, were uot
always able, let us charitably suppose, to
tell black from w hite. This social equality
has not beeu sought by us, but they have
run-after us; and though we are now eman
cipated and free, they haven't stopped."

In the old town of W . in the Pine

lords of creation who had, in a not very long
life, put on mourning for three departed
wives. But time assuages heart-wound a
well a those of the flesh. In due time a
fourth was inaugurated mistress of his heart
and house. He was a very prudeut man,
and suffered nothing to be wasted. When
the new mistre.s was putting thiuge to rights,
while cleaning up the attic, she came across
a long piece of board, and was about launch
ing it out of the window, when little Sadie
interposed, aud said :
"Oh, don't, mammal that is tbe board
papa lays out-hit wives ou, and he wants to

Nevertheless, out it went.
