Tell me not that he's a poor man, That his dress is coarse and bare ; Tell me not his daily pittance Is a workman's scanty fare ; Tell me not his birth is humble, That his parentage is low ; Is he honest in his station? That is all I want to know. Is his word to be relied on? Has his character no stain? Then I care not if he's low born Then I care not whence his name. Would he from an unjust action Turn away with scornful eye? Would he than defraud another Sooner on the scaffold die? Would he spend his hard-gained earnings On a brother in distress? Would he succor the afflicted, And the weak one's wrong redress? Then he is a man deserving Of my love and my esteem, And I care not what his birth-place In the eye of man may seem. Let it be a low, thatched hovel ; Let it be a clay-built cot; Let it be the parish work-house In my eye it matters not. And if others would disown him As inferior to their caste, Let them, do so-I'll befriend him As a brother to the last. Millie Say's Foriaae, --0 Harry Cowper was a book-keeper in large commission house, and his employers prized him because, though only an em ployee, upon, a stated salary, he . made their interests his own, and suffered noth ing to interfere with his duties. He wi a stout, healthy, handsome youth, his clear blue eyes and purely tinted skin showing very conclusively that his habits were virtuously regular. It was towards the close of the day, and Harry was busilv engaged in balan cing his accounts. The only other occu pant of the counting room was Peter Phipps, the delivery clerk. Peter was an old man-sixty at least-and had been in the employ of the house for many years. He was broken in health, but was able to keep an account of goods as they were de livered, for which trifling service he re ceived sufficient for his support. Harry had just closad his ledger wjien Jasper Groome entered the office. Jasper was Harry's senior by two or three vears, and held a limited interest in a small-house near by. He was well and fashionably dressed, and might be accepted as a fash ionable man. " Harry, mv son, ha " you heard the news?" cried the new comer, tapping his [riend upon ihe shoulder. " I have heard nothing wonderful, Jas per. Is gold up or down." " A certain Kind of gold is high up. Bavcn't you heard of the stroke of for tune which has fallen to Millie Day?" At the mention of that name Harrv Cowper caught his breath, and a quick lush was visible upon his clear cheek. " I have not heard," he said. " Don't you remember an uncle of Mil ie's who was sick * ! " iv Yu *. ew years ago, and t so enderly." "Mr. Snyder roumean?"" " X VaTnftmripr.ni . " , great many evei ; . lis company." " Well," pursu< - . v J . . eems, was one of ' - . Cilia ;o land. About . ::. . . . ; . rithout chick or . : ' and las been on here to inform Miss Millie )ay that she is sole heiress of his whole ortune. It is somewhere in the neighbor ed of half a million. There is over two lundred thousand in bank. What d've hink of that old fellow?" Harry Cowper shrank like one who had eceived a blow. He was silent and houghtful. " How, my boy !-don't it please you ?" leraanded Jasper, with a show of aur )rise. Harrv rallied and answered, with a shake ?f the head : " No, Jasper, I am sorry for this." "Sorry? And wherefore? I thought rou had a particular regard for the lady." Co- /ocr looked up, ' an 1 faintly smiled. !t wa~ a smile, but there was pain in it : " Jasper," he said seriously and earnest - y, as one speaks in confidence to a dear riend, " I love Millie Day, though I have lever spoken to her as a lover. I have >een waiting until I could insure her a lome if she accepted my proffered hand. \s vou know, I nave only a salary to de >end upon, and a portion of that is set ipart for the maintenance and education >f my sister." "Are you s* ious?" asked Groome. ' Will the coming of this fortune deter 'ou from pressing your suit ?" " Yes." "But, man alive! Is not the prize vorth more than ever before? If Millie Jay was worth winning when she had ?ardly a dollar of her own, what must she >e now ?" " She can bo no more to me now?" re lied Harry. " It was Millie Day that 1 oved-Millie Day that 1 love still-and io amount of worldly wealth can add to he price I would have set upon her love n return. But that is past. Had she .emcined poor I had hoped ere long to lave been able to offer her a home-a tome where she could help me to find joy md comfort." " And do you mean to say, Harry, that ?ron. give her up ?" " bhe is not mine to give up." " 1 dare not press it. After so long a tii?e my past silence might be miscon strued and my claim be regarded as mer :cnary." "By Jove, old fellow! she'll make a rich catch for somebody." "Ko richer than before," said Harry with solemn seriousness. " I tell you, Jasper, that for the true man, seeking a true wife, Millie Day, with only her truth and her goodness for her own dower, would bc a priceless boon. I should esteem it thc richest gift this side of heaven. I think if 1 had her for my companion I should challenge the world to exceed my happiness." "Harn' you're a fool !" "Thank you." " If you "are to step out, I shall go in, and try to win." Harry winced, but betrayed no ill-feel ing. " You are your own master, Jasper." " I shan't fie rivaling you ?" "No. If Millie can love you, then it is proved that she has not loved me." " Then count me in the race for the heiress. By Jove I I will make the at tack this very night. I shall meet her at Darwin's. Are you going?" " No, I don't belong to that set. You forgot that I am only a book-keeper." " Yes, I remember. But you'll get into a house one of these days. You'll find it pleasant. The title ot Merchant gives a fellow a lift in society, but I ain't vain. If you'll go with me"I'll introduce you at Darwin's. "No." " Then I'll go alone and be sure I'll make love, bola and strong, to Miss Mil dred Day." " One word," said Harry, as his friend waa upon the point of departing. There was a pain mark upon his face, and hi? bps quivered ; but he spoke calmly, though with a palpable effort : " You will seek to win the ?ovo of Millie Day. You may succeed. If such should be the result, Jasper, I pray you be true and faithful ; for she is an angel and is worthy of all i love and honor I" " Never fear, old fellow. I'll make her a good husband if I win her. Half a million 1 2iounds ! Isn't that worth work ing for?" And with this Jasper Groorre turned from the office, and Harry Cowper bowed his head upon the edge of his desk. " Shall iputup thebooks, Mr. Cowper ?" Harry looked up, and saw the old de livery clerk. : "Ah,-you here, Phipps?" " Yes, I've been ^copying permits. Shall I put the books in the sate ?" " Yes,-you may, if you please, j must go round and call for my sister on my way home." And Harry Cowper left the store. And that night, when he was alone in his chamber, his thoughts were sad and pain ful. He had loved" Millie Day a long, long . time ;-but he had not yet ventured to speak of his love for reasons already made known. But now a change had come over the spirit of his dream. He asked himself if he had decided rightly, and his own sense of manly honor told him yes. He felt that the maiden had been lifted away from him, -and he dared not approach her. What had he, a poor clerk, with an orphan sister to support from his scanty earnings, to do with offering his hand to the heiress of half a million ? It would be simple beggary. Time passed on, and Harry Cowper was punctual at his desk, and at his numble home. He went nowhere else. On the first of January his salary was raised five hundred dollars a year. He had looked forward to this event with high hopes. He had once thought that upon a salary of two thousand dollars he might venture to ask Millie to become his wife. ' But the bright dream had fled. Still he hailed the increase aa a blessing, as he cpuld now do more for his sister. A month had passed firm the time of the arrival of the attorney who had come to place Millie Day in possession of her fortune, and, as might" be supposed,' suitors for her hand had been plentiful and per sistent. Harry Cowyer was on his way home when he fell in with Jasper Groome. Friendly salutations were passed, and for a time they chatted upon various light topics. At length Jasper said : " By the way, old fellow, it's all up with the heiress." Harry started and gasped for breath. "She has refused me, plump, square and flat. What d'ye think of that?" " Refused you ?" repeated Harry, re gaining his breath. " Has Millie Day re fused you?" "Yes. I guess she's after higher game. There is a perfect army of suitors m her irain, but I think she looks with the most iavor upon old Corydon." "Do you mean Warren Corydon, the janker?" " Yes. He's worth a million and a half. Depend upon it, she has her eye upon the Fifth avenue." Harry's only response to this waa ' Pshaw !" And yet But he would not reflect upon it. He Tent home and tried to forget all about it, md the more he tried to forget, the more. >? rom?mbpri-r?'flrirl rpfWrprl 'A ' *. . ^'-i &fu-.- "I*.

I think wc may count upon ?our presence ?" Mrs. Sturgis han been a true friend to loth Harry and his sister, and she was a worthy and estimable woman, and after a ittle consideration he said he would go. The large drawing-room of the Sturgis nansion was brilliantly lighted and the assembly was select, not selected upon the >asis of fashion, but culled with appropri ite care from the realm of intellectual forth ; Mrs. Sturgis had taken charge of Jany's sister; and our hero was proceed ng to join a friend whom he had discoY ivered in another part of the room, when ie met Millie Day. She changed color dien she saw him, and for a moment it ippearcd to Harry a: though she would lave avoided the meeting, but she pres ?ntly rallied and greeted him with a smile, ?er" greeting* was very brief, however, and vith a humed step she passed on, and oined the old banker, Corydon. No wonder that men gazed admiringly lpon Millie Day as she moved past them. Jne was beautiful in every sense. The ?ther might pray that his daughter could ie like her; the.brother might pray that Jod would bless him with such a sister ; he child of sorrow and want could but bank Heaven for bringing such a friend ; ind the lover who might win her for his >wn could surely declare that earth bore lothing of womankind more bright and ovely. Harry saw her give her hand to Cory Ion-he saw Corydon tenderly draw that land upon his arm-and then he saw hem walk away together, engaged in tarnest conversation. Ham- Cowper felt faint and dizzy; but ie struggled against the load and turned iway to other scenes; and yet other scenes could not drive that painful scene rom his mind. Could it be possible that Millie was about to sell herself to Warren Corydon ? He was old enough to be her jrandfather. Yet he was a well kept old nan-far more, manly and vigorous than sverc many of those pinks of iashion who Maimed to bc young men. Never before bid Harry realized how deeply he had loved the beautiful girl, nor how large a space she occupied in his hopes of the fu ture. Fully assured that she w.as lost to him forever, he turned away to a window ind leaned Iiis head upon his hands. He thought it best for him to plead illness to his hostess, and go to his home. He knew full well that he could not appear himself under such a cloud. He was reflecting thus, when he felt a light touch upon his arm, and on turning he beheld Millie Day. She was gazing wistfully up into his lace, and there was a wondrous sparkle in her clear azure eye. "Harry, I want to speak with you. Will you come with me ?" Without venturing to answer in words, he followed her. She led the woy to a small conservatory, where they stood by an oleander in full bloom. A brief pause, and an evident struggle, and then Millie, looked up and spoke. Her face was radi ant, and the sparkle of her eyes had deep ened to a fervid glow. " Harry, I have a difficult task to per: form ; but I have prayed for strength, and I think thc strength has come to me. Par don me if I am brief, I seek your counsel. You know that I have lately inherited a large fortune." " Yes-I know," said Harry, in a gasp ing whisper. " And already," she pursued, " that for tune begins to oppress me. Mr. Corydon .holds it in charge for me, and ho will do with it just as 1 say. It stands between me and a very dear friend-a friend whose love I prize above all the wealth of the world-and I have called you here, Har ry to ask you if I shall give my fortune up." " Millie !-I do not understand." Thrice she tried to speak, and her wcrds failed her. At length she caught her lover by the hand, and nor speech tiurst forth : " Harry, do you know that old Peter Phipps is one of the best and truest friends. He was a clerk in my father's store. It was my father who saved him from prison, . and who lifted him up from the dreadful slough of intemperance, and it waa my ijiuv/mg . . - father who recommended him to his pres ent position, where he has been so manv years. I was but a little child then, and Peter used to toss rae in his hands. But the dear old fellow has not forgotten me. He is never afraid to call upon me^ for he knows that my heart is warm and sympa thizing toward him. He came to me, Harry, and told me the conversation be tween yourself and Jasper Groome, when Jasper came and told you of my fortune. He told me all you said, Harry,-all ; all, and then I knew how truly you loved me-how noble you were-and how blessed must be the woman who could secure such a heart-and I-I-0, Harry ! the fortune has put this upon me. 6ay that you do not blame me !" Harry did not try to speak. He only caught, the blessed being to his bosom, and held her there, wilh her head pillowed upon his shoulder--.until he could find words for utterance.., And so the fortune did not sever those two pure and - loving hearts, after all. It became a secondary .thing in their lives ; and while they found their chiefest good in the cultivation of [ those joys that sprang from the old true love, their friends every where-those in prosperity and those m adversity-shared with them in the bless ings of the fortune which Uncle Snyder had left. And we may. add, that of all who gained sunshine from Millie's fortune, not one had more reason to be grateful than had good old Peter Phipps. Brevities and Levities.

And now the two Treasury clerks who peached on Grant about his indebtedness to the Government have como to grief. A Washington letter says: Tho two clerks, Hunt and Green, of tho Third Auditor's office, who were so indiscreet as to disclose thc fact that the records in their division showed the President to be in arre?is to the United States in thc sum of $5,000, and the Third Auditor ?500, have paid tho penalty for telling family secrets. They have been summoned before tho Government exe cutioner, and informed that they " had no right to know anything outside of their official duties ; therefore, tho Gov ernment could dispense with their ser vices." The Third Auditor is a Now Hampshire carpet-bagger, but appointed from North Carolina. He has refunded, and so has the President. " Let us have peace." PENDLETON ON PASSIV?SM.-Hon. George H. Pendleton has filed his protest, in the shape of a letter to certain political friends in Woostor, against the disband ment of thc Democratic party. He says : " Its powerful organization enters every villagt in thc land, and numbers among its adherents nearly one-half thc people as intellectual, as patroitic, as unselfish, as any of their fellow-citizeus. They are too numerous to be cowardly. They are too patriotic to be lukewarm. They are too sincere in their purposes and convic tions to be driven to despondency by ten ye^rs of reverses. They nave shown con stancy in defeat as well as wisdom in vic tory. If I understand their feelings, they will neither disband their organization nor flee the field before the contest commences. Either course, they believe, would yield undisputed sway to the present Admin istration, which could then give undivided attention to the deserters from its ranks. An advancing army, with the enemy ei ther dispersecl or in flight, never loses di visions or regiment, or even companies, and is generally able to pick off or to pick up treacherous or thoughtless stragglers."

Then fill'each hour with what will last; Buy up the moments as they go ; The Ute above When this is past Is the ripe fruit of life below.

The Washington correspondent of the Baltimore Evening Journal gives the following sketch of Judge Bond : As many papers in the country are making a great hue and cry about the Ku Klux in South Carolina, and the administration of justice by Judge Bond, it is but just to let them know who Judge " Huge Lummux" Bond is, and some of his antecedents. He is well known in this city, as are the means he used to secure his present appointment, and confirmation after appointment, the latter being strong ly opposed by Chawles Augustus, of the Plunderer's . Organ of your city, and who is now his chief eulogizer. I have been informed by reliable persons, that when he waa Judge of the Criminal Court of your city, he compelled the crier of said court, (who was once in the dog business in Baltimore, also an engine house keep er, but now a postoffice detective,) to divide his salary (which was larger than that of the Judge) with him. He (the Judge) was the delegate to the Methodist Episcopal Church Con ference at Winchester, Virginia, (just before the war) who seceded from the Conference because of his strong pro slavery views, which were antagonis tic to the majority of the Conference. He it was, while a Judge of the Criminal Court of your city, and as such a conservator of the peace, beg ged an officer of the United States army to release from his custody Ma jor Harry Gilmor, (a prisonerpf war,) in Baltimore, and send . is guard home, so that the Union men could hang him (Major Gilmor) to a lamp post ; and he it was who caused the arrest of many Southern sympathi zers in your city during the late war, by means of his influence with the commanding generals and their pro vost marshals. While this prating Judge professes Christianity, he never was known to .improve any opportunity for sowing the good seed, or of teaching, either by precept or example, the lessons which we are taught to believe as coming direct from the fountain-head, and certainly his actions do not ap- . pear to be influenced by the constant kindliness and gentle hearing of those who understand Christianity to sig nify not only faith, purity and de votion, but also, that peace and good will among men are its fundamental principles and essential elements. No, none of these ! Duplicity is his forte, and has frequently and faithfully rv] bu* . ' tion : Since the brilliant Carl Schurz has bro ken with Grant, and it is seen that he will cany with him a large proportion of the German vote, the President and Ins friends in thc Senate cannot conceal their hatred of thc entire foreign element. It cropped out yesterday in the remarks of Nye, the Nevada buffoon, who sneering ly alluded to Mr. Sehurz's foreign birth as a convincing argument that he knew nothing of statesmanship, or thc princi ples of Republican Government. And then Mr. Nye, a native-born statesman, (!) added his conception of "the true spirit of American institutions." He said that for his part he " would never consent to give thc rebel leaders a right to take part in thc Government. Ho would keep them browsing on tho out side till their hair grow as long as Ne buchadnezzar's, and if that was not states manship, then he did not know any thing about it.-' Thereupon there was mirth in the Senate. The country will agree with Mr. Nye that he doesn't know any thing about it. Profane people would call his statesmanship damphoolishncss. The Partridge the Agriculturist's Friend. At a meeting of horticulturists in Illi nois strong ground was taken against the destruction of these birds. To show how useful this bird is, it was stated that a flock of partridges were seen running along tho rows of corn just sprouting, and seeing them engaged in something which was believed to bc pulling up the young plants, one of them was killed and its "crop" examined, winch was found to contain one cutworm, twenty one striped bugs, and over one hundred chinch bugs. Another member related that he had adopted measures to protect the bird, and that they had become so numerous and tame that hundreds of them, after snow falls, could bc seen in Iiis barnyard with the fowls, where they were fed. As a result of their presence upon his premises his wheat crop was unusually abundant, while in many oth er places not far off the chinch-bug and other insects had destroyed half thc crop. Thc following -story is going the rounds on Butler, which is pretty good : " While Ben bossed New Orleans, he informed a waggish but very ill Confeder ate officer, then sick at his home in the city, that he must take the oath or clear out. This order was peremptory. The Confederate demurred as much as possible, alleging that he was used up anyhow, that he didn't believe in the old government at all, and that the odds were that he would soon die and secede permanently. It was of no use ; so he got Ben to "administer the oath himself. Ben complied, holding the book behind the back ot the neck so as to bring it within range of his service able orb. The officer swallowed the oath with sincere and suggestive grimaces. At the close he seemedrejuvenated, and he asked Butler, "Ain't I as good a union man as you now, General ?" " Yes, if you live up to that oath," rejoined Ben. " And I can abuse the South as loud as the worst of you ?" inquired the officer. " To your heart's content," replied the Beauty. "Well, then, General," added the sick man, rising in bed, and fixing Butler's one eye, with his two, " if you and I had that d-d old rebel, Lee, in our hands, wouldn't we steal his watch ?" The oath taker got four days in the guardhouse, but he said he was satisfied with the price he paid for it. _ _ }Q?T Tho following conundrum was propounded to us the other day by a noted wag : " What is the difference be tween a town bell and Gov.
