TUE DEATH LEAP.
In thc State of New York, ten years nj
aiiii on the banks of the Hudson, nut rna
miles above its mouth, lived Graham Stil
a retired money-broker; rich, proud and u
scrupulous. He was past his sixtieth yet
of spare but sinewy frame, and with co!
steel-gray eyes that glittered with a resile
uneasy glance irum beneath close drawn ai
?buggy brows. *
lits house was large, though occupied or.
by himself and un invalid widow lady, wi
lior daughter, ba-ides a few servants.
None, ?-uve himself, knew why Graba
Stiles lind given shelter for so many years
; be Widow L-:c ai,d her daughter Emily, i
Emily grew from lovely girlhood into, st
more krvdy womanhood, becomingllre exa
counterpatt of her mother, Graham Stil
ouud the hard faCtd demon of Avarice yid
inp ample room in his bosom lor thc si ft
passion of love. This prompted him to s
.Unie her as much as possible from socict
ihat be nii^ht so cduca'.e her that she shou
look upon Lim more as a iriend than as
guardian, and that step attained, to becon
both friend and ?over. .
In the summer cf 1850, Graham Stiles w
strolling, at sunset, upou the grassy lawn th
bordered thc lofty banks of the Hudson, ch
ling bitterly with the consciousness that E*J
?ly ruther shunned than esteemed hun ; who
hearing voices as if from the luce of tl

growing moss", sat Emily Loo and a handson
young man of twomy-i'our or live years i
age, named William Lewis, convening in
tone gentle and thrilling, yet. distinctly aud
ble to the keen ears so jealous above.
G tahara Stiles set his teeth hard, and h
cheek grew ashy white, while his kuotte
brows grew crimson red, as he saw that th
beautiful girl rested ber head upon the) mat
ly shoulder of her compnuion, whose ari
encircled her waist with an accepted lover
freedom. The listener soon learned that th
love of the youthful pair had teen plightci
Some of the remarks of William were so tn
complimentary to S'i!r-s, that he made h
presence known by an angry exclamation.
Thc levers were upon thiir feet in an it
s'ant, and Wilh'e-found ni! his muscular nc:-.:
necessary to sustain the fbi rn of Emily, a
they climbed thc tugged path leading to th

I. You seem to have some gtnrdiaushi;
(vcr her, real or assumed, and so I ask you ti
consent to our marriage. Task nothing bu
herself, for I have enough."
Graham Stiles had listened to this speed
with his usually icstless eye- fixed upon tb
frank and handsome visage of thc sloop < wn
-r, as if bc longed to turn bim to slime, t'
lust, to any thing that he might set his foo
aron, arid as Willie cmc!ud<.d, he pressed hi
sharp tee:!: hard upon the nether lip. until ;
Imp of deep red blood trickled down upni
his chin. Yet ho answered nothing to Wil

"Go, Willie," pleaded Emily. "I may

-but I have no serf drep in my veins to bi
hus addressed, and I tell you that I love you
i< re before him, and will ever love you, Willie
Lewis. Wc shall meet again." She gave
cr band to her lover as they parted, she go
ng rapidly towards the house, he towards thc
path that lid to the river road ; but first he
xchai ged a defiant glance with his enemy,
" Neither you, nor a hundred like you, can
take her love from rae, Graham Stiles."
" There'll be blood from your heart or
mine when we meet again, William Lewis,''
muttered the other, as be turned upon bis
heel and paced alowlj towards the house,
plan nilig and scheming a way to remove
When Emily reached her mother's s
she was surprised to see the invalid sittinj
her arm chair, with the clear and unmistc
able light of fully restored reason in her e;
and a flush i joy upon her pale cheeks, t
seemed like the heart of some inward i

Graham Stiles was KIOWII alvant-ing. He,
miserable wretch, was dreaming then of mur

thnt Captain Lee's life lay red and damning
upon his bande, be did not scruple to scheme
for thc ppeedy commission of another.

A Bali and a Prayer Meeting.
Did you ever soc a ball followed by a pray- j
er meeting?" We have, A few days since, . ^
wbileona visit to the White Sulpliur Baths," j
thc proprietor informed me that at night ho j
intended to give a ball and -supper to the j 1
rmployce: of his establishment, including j
those who had remained faithful to their I
trusts during die receut "strike," and those j 1
who had taken the places and performed the ! S
ditties of the rrCreai'l ones who had been 1
driven away indirgrace. Afrer tea we stroll- 1
ed out to the ball room, which we found bril- v
liant ly* lighted and f?led with an assembly of f
mixed odors. The guests of the establish- 1
ment were seated an>und the room, interest- r
pd spectators of thc amusing scene, while on f
thc floor the negroes and rheir invited friends 8
were whirling away to thc inspiring strains 1
ot the music. Corks, chambermaids, nurses,
washerwomen, and fi-ld bands were mingled
together, dressed in ihe very best that their ?
wardrobe? could afford.
Round jackets, claw hammer and pigeon
tail coats, of various styles, on the men, were
set off by the muslins, tarletans, calicoes, til
ters, flounces', furbelows, ribbons, wreaths
ind waterfall of the women. D>re a stal- ^
wart ebony hued leader of a bee gang, with
a foot like a child's coffin, balanced to a sad- '
die complexioned nurse, who fanned ?nd flirt
ad with all the airs of a shoddy Saratoga S
belle, while at the other end of the set a tall C
ind lithey ostler was cutting thc pigeon wing,
ireatly to hi3 own satiefaction and the amuse
anent of his partner and the spectators. But
:he most noted figure in the group was. the
.chef de cuisine." whic'i, vulgarly interpre
ted, means " head cock." With a fkin as ,
alack as night and as alick as a billiard balli
i figure that did not belie his calling, and
Jrcsscd ?a a stylo, becoming his figure, he
looked every inch like a black Count Fosco
Disdaining thc stately walking, which is mis- ^
named dancing in these latter days, he pirout
ted with a grace and precision which would
h.ave reflected cn dit upon the ballet master of
the 41 Black Crook." ' [
After a few cotilions had been disposed of, t
the company were- marched to the dining room
jf the hotel, where a mest elegant and boan- .
tiful supper had been prepared for them.
Amid speeches, tout?, and Eculimcnts. ssr
ilines, marmaUdes, ices, cakes, and jellies, f
were disposed of, and the order was given,
"On with the dance," ^
and the ball rcom again re-echoed to the sounds
of music, and trembled under thc rapid steps
of the dancers.
Just at 12 o'clock, thc leader of the band
tapped his violin and notified tho company j
that he could not violate either his own con
viciions or the proprieties of life by flotirish
ing his bow on the'Sabbath, and silence like 1
ii pall suddenly f> ll nj.oa thc scene. '

individual entered, and addressing himself to
those present, said :
" Who will give me a pint of ale for a good

"Good!'' said Day; "now 1 v.i!l give yon

took his leave.
Thc next morning Day sought one of his
friends, a commercial traveller named Martin,
aad showed him the recipe. Tia y made a
quantity of the Hacking, and lilied al! H o old
bottles they could obtain with .the mixture.
This done, a friend of thc pruniers weat to
all the grocers and blacking merchants ol

ed<?2G5,O0O of eight percent. Con'ederate
bonds of the issue of 1S?T, and $300,000 of
the issue of 1SGJ, to fill an order from the

not known, but it is thought that this is a
part of the gum of a million iii. Confederate
ei.ht per cents advertised .for in the National
Intelligencer of a receut dato. It might en
sue that in the settlement of the Alabama and
other claims between the United Slates and
the Governments of Great Britain and France,
the two latter should take the ground which
ours has repeatedly assumed, viz : that tho
rebellious States we're never ont of the Union,
and as a corollary that thc parent Govern
ment is responsible for tho damag. s whici
they have committed. The officers of th.
bank here, advertising for thesc'bonds, stat,
that a request was made on them, ly some
parties in Europe, for a number of the notes,
which they wished merely for a curiosity.
