" Take good care of the factory, Hat tie, and of your mother, a'-so," said old Robert Doner ; " and don't marry any one that is not a good weaver." "What are you saying, papa?" asked the daughter, with a sodden start, at the same time pressing and. kissing the hand upon which the eoldneaa of death was beginning to settl. The dying man repeated the injunc tion with greater effort, and the daughter answered : " Yea, papa, I hear and will do as you ay." This was Hattie Downers last promise to her father ; a hard one to make, bat it was kept. Robert Downer had been pee of the best known and most successful of the Nottingham lace weavers. Hia factory, and the curious and costly machinery with whkb it was filled, had been his greatest delight ; while the beautiful fab rics that were made there, and bore his name and trade-mark, were known and admired ia ewry part of the world. His highest ambition had been to place him self at tke he I of that btwinese an hon or which be had obtained and enjoyed i n il the end of his Ion lifd. And when the oid man began to realize that death would soon remove him from the care and supervision of hia business he was more than ever anxious to so arrange everything so that his lace fatrory would go right on with its work. Robert Downer had foui children; three sons and his daughter Uattie, the yoongest of the family, anc not more than twenty years old at the ime of her father's death. His sons, gtnnge to say, were worthless fellows, a navy weight oo their father ; and he knes very well that if the factory passed into heir hands it would soon go to the dogs. Under these circumstances, fc old man resolved to place rt forever behind their reach ; and with that view he had pro vided by his will that his sous should each receive an annual stipend, as much as he thought the business cia'd spare them ; but that the factory itelf, and everything connected therewith should be the inheritance of his daughte', believ ing that, under the ownership md con trol of that good and faithful girl, the business that had been the ambtion and purpose of his life would be take care of and move right along, retaining-tis name and trade-mark. His wife was in feeble healti, and not likely to live long. Hiving thus arranged everytiing with a view of securing the continuaice of the business, it had suddenly occured to the old weaver, just at a time wbei the light of life was departing, and somewhat soon er and more rapidly than he h.d expect ed, that hid daughter's future husband, whoever he might bt, siud by all means be a weaver. When aking for, and obtaining that promise, hwever, he did not know that hia danghtr, so con stant and earnest in her devoti n to him self and her mother, and to th lace fac tory, also, bad thus far eutertsned any clearly defined thoughts on te subject of man-UK. But Haitie heself had known for some time that EJney Lys- ter, the young barrister, love her, and that she was returning that ove. The affection thus received and rciprocated had not, it is true, been expressed in words openly spoken ; but love has yery many other ways to lake itseir known. The voung girl had not ktended to withhold from her parents an thing that she felt at liberty to mention a regard to that subject ; but the i mm at re state of those fondly cherished sentuienta had seemed to require that thejshould be permitted to remain right she re tney were, in the secret thoughts c' her heart, antil they assumed a more ccinite form. and until some distinct inthation had been given by the gentlenan himself, either to her or to her parent, in regard to the love which, as she firmy believed. was being held by him i store for her. Two years had passed sine the death of Robert Downer. His wii, although tenderly cherished and card for, hat! survived him only a few tenths ; and Hattie, with her servants, ws now alone in the old family home, the lost of her time being devoted to overseing and di recting the immense busitea her father had left The beautiful bice hat wa sent out from the factory made itiappearance not in little delicate pieces, aintily and carefully wrought by the dft fingers of girls working for five shillngs a week, as bad been done before hose looms were invented, but in large nckages, con taining thousands of yards That lace was, however, none the lest beautiful to th young owner and ma age r of the lacU ry because there was n immense nuantit-r of it, and made in e loom her father had placed there, an.io which for many years he had given lis constant care and attention. The young heiress and Ue-weaver, as the reader will readily suppee, soon d covered that she was an objet of special attention and interest to a axge number ot gallant young gentle tic, some of whotn were the wearers f titles their grandfathers bad earned. Occasionally, and quite as often, in fact, a the young kdy desired, some one of hose gentle men, after considerable mnagirr and itncw, woi.l I get near enagh to inti mate a desire to learn if a all nearer ap proach would be entirely areeable ; bat the answer returned ta every case was : . Are yoa a lace-weaver T ; 4- " Zona da 1" said those young bloods, as they thought over the matter. " A queer girl, by Jove '. Richer than a banker's daughter, and wants her hucband to be a common workman a lace weaver 1 What strange fancy has taken her ? Well educated, too ; the old weaver kept her at a London school for five years. She can not only go through all the figures of business tike an experienced accountant, but can sing and play, talk French and ; dance ia hanleome, too, and makes a graceful appearance in her drawing-room j but, then, spends half her time in the factory, overseeing the men, passinsi around among them, and inquiring some times, if their wives and children are well, and have they everything needed at home. There must be some way to gvt through or over her whims, unless she is determined t make a nnn of her self. Rad enough fr men to consecrate themselyes to bled celibacy who have no more money than they want for them selves ; but downright insanity fur a beautiful girl who has a business with more than a hundred thousand pounds." But to get that absurd whini out of the head of that stubborn English girt was more taaily talked cf than done. Of course those young gentlemen were noC lace-weavers ; and they were too old and too proud to learn a handicraft of that sort, even if they had been so disposed. But those efforts to find some way to the heart and hand of the young lady were continued rightailonj;, as they always are in such cases, although without any en coumxing result, in this instance. No actual lace weaver had ventured to place himself at the feet of the heiress, and the same oft-related and inevitable an swer had served to keep those other ap proximators outside of the sacred inclos ure where the affections of her heart and the hopes of her life were enshrined. Srraojrely enough, one young nian. Rodney Lyster, the barrister, who had already won a filtering reputation in his profession, had not thus far ventured to approucn the young lady with the question that sent so many others away. She had met him only occasionally dur ing those two years, sometimes at long intervals, he being absent a large part of the time on business, the nature of which was not known to her. She was conscious that those meetings were mutually agree able, and yet they were sometimes fol lowed by a sad sinking of her heart, as if a heavy weight was resting there that ought to be removed in some way. Could she never receive and appropriate the only love she had ever desired to recip rocate? Again and strain she looked at and thought of the promise she had made to her father made in good faith, and hearl by him ; and he was probably re membering it in the world to which he had gone. No, no," she would say ; " that prom ise must bv kept. 1 will remain unmar ried to the end of. my life. The only j man I have ever loved, or can love, will, no doubt, become the husband of gome one e!, and to that I will submit ; but my promise to my dying father shall never be broken." Of course, Hattie Downer had never intimated to Rodney Lyster anything in regard to that piomist, nor would it have been delicate or proper for her to have done so. She knew, however, from what her mother had told her, that a short time before her decease, the young barrister had learned the whole story from, her, and that, of course, was the reason why, during hia occasional visits, always so pleasant and delightful, no intimation had ever escaped his lips designed to create an impression on her mind that he desired to make her the object of his special attentions. During these two years, however, es pecially the second one, the weaver's laughter had sometimes noticed, when meeting Mr. Lyster, a peculiar expres sion, cheerful; and even playful, which she fMt certain was vailing a pleasant secret of some sort, which she was un able to fathom. But the day came when the vail was withdrawn, and taking her hand as he sat beside her, Rodney Lys ter asked her to be his wife. For a few moments Hattie hesitated. It seemed impossible for her to return the same answer to him that she had given to so many others. But the firm resolution cherished so long, to be true to her promise, triumphed at last, and she answered ; I told my dying father that I would marry no one but a lace-weaver, Mr. Lys ter, ami I cannot break my word." "Very well," was the young barrister's reply, atxompanied by another of those mysterious smiles, "that is no reason for declining the offer of either my heart or my ban.L The former has been yours for a long time in fact, has never be longed to anyone else; and the latter has. as you will discover, been success fully trained in the delicate and beauti ful work in which your deceased father required you to promise that your future husband should be sallied. Oh! oh.'." exclaimed Hattie, fairly uiizy with the conten.il ng emotions that surged through her mind. "3Iy dear Rolnev, now I understand the secret you have been so carefully guarding from me, and trie reason why yon have been away from here so often and so long." The truth in regard to that matter, aa the yonng lady soon learned, was that Rodney LysJer had been spending a con siderable part of bis time during thoee two years under the skillful training of one of the best lace-makers, in Paris, and the only one there who was able to match perfectly, if not actually exeel, the finest work done in her fathers fac tory.

"Well have easier times here at the factory," was carelessly remarked by some of the less knowing of the opera tives, when they learned that the young barrister was about to take the place of the lady whe had been managing the business since the death of her father. But they soon learned that the man who had become joint owner aivl principal directifr was not coming in there to look at ant! direct a basiae he knew nothing abou. ; but could when so dispoae.1, take j his place at the loom with the best ot i them. Aa for the profession to which Rodney .Hie Lyster had been devoting ail his talents and lime until he turned his attention to learning the mysteries of lace-weaving, he soon discovered that he had no fur ther use for it, except ia the knowledge and skill it afford! him in the manage ment of the large bminess that had come into hia hands. And then, when, after a few years, Rodney Lyster began to be spoken of as a suit Vole person to repre sent his district ia the Hoase of Com mons, it was immediately discovered by the men who were working the political wires, that, in hia case, no sjiecial can vassing would be required. "Rodney Lyster is the man for us!" was the response that went through the district at once. How much or how little he knew of the subject of law, was a point about which the mof t of these men did not stop toenqnire. They knew he was the work inirman's friend, ami accnutom ed to come in among them iu the style and manner of one who realUeS tiviir worth and their wants. "Oid Robert Downers head was level when he gave that factory to hia daugh ter and told her to marry a weaver," they would frequently remark. Rodney Lyster's seat in the House was easily secured and retained. The men by whose labor wealth was created want ed him there, for they they knew that their interest and welfare were one with his own. The lace that was made at the factory never dishonored the name or the trade mark that Robert Downer had given it ; nor did the weaver's daughter ever regret that her father had required her to make the promise she had so faithfully kept An Antidote for Cowardice. Just before the battle of Antietaai five recruits came down for my company. There were no bounty jumpers at that stage of the game, although the courage and patriotism of all the recmita could not be vouched for.

We were in Hooker's corps, and aa we were in against Jackson, Ianforth obliqued alongside and said : "Sergeant, kick me or I shall bolt, I haven't got sand enough to see a chicken die." We were moving through the timber, 1 and I stepped behind him and "lifted him twice as hard as I could kick. He shot aside, and the next time I saw him we were at a fence at the edge of a corn field. The fire was hot and men were falling thick. I had just fired from a rest on the top rail when Danforth came j up. faced the other way, and said : "More kicks, Sergeant!

Half an hour later we were driven back, considerably disor ganized, and as I reached the fence I came across Danforth again. He had a rebel Captain bv the collar, and wca carrying the officer's sword in his hand. As he saw me he called out : "Sand is all right, Sergeant N" more kicks.

In l.t)l when a Confederate camp was located on Marietta street, an incident occurred which, with its sequel, makes an interesting rerr.iniscecce of the day when the old Atlantic was more of a sol dier's barracks than a city. The camp to which I allude, writes a contributor to the Atlanta CunMitiuin, was a good way out on Marietta street, and the s.te ia now occupied by a number of new dwelling houses. Dr. Roy, of thia city, was one of the phys-oiana at the camp. The late Cap ain Alphonso H trtel, of the Twenty-fourth Alabama, had been placed in temporary charge of the prison, and one day a Federal prisoner gave him a 5in0 greenback bill to keep, fearing theft on the part of other prisoners. Shortly afterwards the prisoner escaped. Captain' Hurtel sent the money to his wife in Mobile, A!a telling her to keep it, and if he did not send for it, and the Confederacy fell, to use it. When Mobile surrendered that JlOO was a God-send to one of the many impoverished families of the Galf City. And now the strange sequel. Ten ; years after the ciose of the war, one day while Captain Hartel was sitting in hia office, a poor and ragged sailor walked in ami asked : "Is this Captain Hurte! V After a quick glance at the man's fea tures, Captain Hurtel answered : Yes, and yoa are the soldier wao gave nie the 8100 bill in Atlanta, Ga., d'iriflg ! the war." f Ye. sir.

"Well, yon must recollect that Alaska contains G0O.GO0 square niiks. and it will be a considerable period cefore ail her resources can be named w th certainty ; but relating to my observations, and re liable experiments in several localities, I will say that Alaska can raise about ev erything possible to the wore temperate belts. First, there are deiicions wild ber ries of all kinda, and especially the strawberry, which grows :n abundance and ia of fine flavor. Within fifteen miles of the greet iiacier bay our ex ploring party of ten Indiana and three whites picked eiiough cf these berries in two hours to furnish us with lavish des sert for three days. Nowhere in the world can finer vegvtablei and root crops be raised, while sheep and cattle raising has been tested to satiafai tion, and en couraging experiments in zrain have al ready been made. There ia no doubt in my mind that the hardier fruila will do excellently in Alaska. "Rather a dreary country, after aiL" "Dreary!

Deab Si: Having reason to believe that yoa are in sympathy with those broad-minded Republicans who desir the pcridcation of the party by purgir.g it of tinny ism which no threatens i' destruction, we ask yon in furtheraa of this end, to furnish, at your earnest con venience, the following information : 1. Names and ax! Iressr of a.l Kepu u cana in your county that yoa may ht-ar ff who wiil vote for Robert E. rattis. it for Governor.

L Name a roan in your county who, in your judgment, would 1 lx-st qiwli tied to direct the Independent movement ia harmony with the Independent State organization. He should be prominent, active, and not afraid to identity himself openly and aggressively with the cause of reform. He should command the re spect of thi.- community, and be well known as one wh';ae Republicanism is not questioned Names and information sent to ua will be considered strictly confidential, and will not be ma le public uoieaa by con sent. From reliable information receivtd thus far we have reason to believe that Governor Pattison's majority will be 1 k ly to exceed -"x),00 in the State. We can largely increase that majority if we do our duty. We shall be pleased to see you or any of your friends at our headquarters whenever you may happen to be in the city. An early response ia requested. Respectfully Yonrs. i e, , rti ; x E. M rss. Chairman. TfTK REPLY. Altoox t, Pi, September Respectfully returned to George H. Mapes, Chairman,, etc. I may or may not vote for Mr. Fnrison for Governor this flail. Be that as it may, I do not feel called upon to enter into any organized effort to defeat the Republican party. While reserving to myself the right to exercise my private j'ldirment a.s to whether I should or should not support any particular candi.late at any time, I aia nevertheless a lifelong Republican, believing in its principles, and generally support its candidates. This Independ ent business has to a largo extent become chronic and it carried on by men profes sing to be Republicans, who always feel themselves eon-'traioed to defeat th party at the pol'a as the sure! way to promote its best interests and to put into practice it avowed principles. In short, they are soreheads, disgrunt led aspirants fir leadership, who have been remanded to the rear by the party, and who are now in sympathy with the Democrats, but lack the candor, courage and honesty to say so. If 7ou do cot like Senator Delamater, go to the polls like a little man and vote against hiui. That will be tue manly way to do. But don't try to organise defeat for the party simply because you don't like one of its candidates or the political methods of Senator '-ioay. I give this aivwe gratis, not believing, however, that yo'i will heed it, aa from what I know of your past record you are more bent on the de feat and destruction of the RepaUi-an party than on its pnrifi-i'ion. I am not with yoa thia time, and I am inclined to h belief that there are bnt few of your way of thinking in this county. Raspectfiiiiy. etc - RoHSKT Joassof. A Retort by Wendell Philtips. Mr. Phillips was once in a raiia iy car in which were a number of ministers re turning from a convention. Auvonz th number was a man with a toad, strident voice, who was loudly declaiming against the abolitionists, and estieciaily against Mr. Phillips. He was talking at every one in the car, and finally shonted that he understood that Mr. Phillips was on board. Calling the conductor be asked him to point out Mr. Phillips. The con ductor indicated the orator, who had been a quiet and interested listener. The Utile man with the voice strode up the aisle to a disrespectful distance, and after striking an attitude, the follow ing colloquy took place : "So yoa are Wendell Phillips?" "I am, sir," was the quiet reply. "Then why don't yoa frt oath ard preach your doctrine there T"anoutei the little minister. At that time any abolitionist would have been lynched in the Smth.
