The interior of this house is even more beau?

And yet, at the moment we look In upon
him-one August afternoon, ae he occupied
afc Horary-the proprietor of all this wealth
appeared of ali men the most miserable.
Se was Kr. Morton Preble, for many years a
leading banker of San Francisco.

tte south end of the room had been opened,
giving Ingress to tho sunshine and the fra?

fi? was wretched.
He lay on a sofa, In the depths af the great
hey-wmdow, the wreck of a oaoo powerful
man.' Bia figure was thin and gaunt; his face
white as marble, his eyes having an expres?
sens of wofol apprehension, of barro whig anx?
iety, of dreadful expectancy.
lt waa evident at a glance that no merely
pMvBical ailment bad made him what he was.
B7 what withering secret, by what deetroy
- ing affliction, had he been thus agonised* thus
haunted? he so nobie and good ! he so wealthy
and distinguished !
As he moved restlessly upon hie luxurious
?asol?os, the pretty clock on the mantelpiece
struck five, every stroke seeming to fall like a
hammer upon the heart of the nervous inva?
lid. He aroused himself, struggling feebly to
' a Eitting posture.
"Oh, will this fatal day never, never pass r
he murmured; "nor bring us relief ?"
noticing with a nervous start that he was
ajume, he touched a bell upon the table before
aim, and coiled:
"Beten, Helen! where are you r
Before the echoes of his voloe had died ont,
a step was heard, and hts wife entered hts
"Heft you ordy for a moment, Morton," abe
said, advancing to the banker's aide. "Yon
were doting, I think. I wished to send for
the doctor J*
She was a beautiful woman, of some six and
thirty years, gracelal, with broad white brows
and loving eyes, in which the brightness and
sweetness of a sunshiny nature were still per?
ceptible, under a grief and anxiety no Ieee poig?
nant than that evinced by her husband.
"The doctor I" he echoed, aaU-reproach
" Yes, dear." she said, In a calm sad cheer?
ful voice, as she drew a chair to the side of the
som: ana sat down, stroking the corrugated
forehead of the invalid with a magnetic touch.
1 "He will he here immediately. Your last ner?
vous crisis alarmed me. You may become se?
Mr. Preble bestowed an affectionate look
.pen his wife, but sald-despondently :
"The doctor i He cannot 'minister to a mind

"Look up, Morton I" enjoined Mrs. Preble,
with a reverently trustful glance upward
through the open window at the blue sky, and
as h* looking beyond the azure clouds therein.
"Let ns appeal from the injustice and wicked
Bess of earth to the goodness and mercy of
The banker gave a low. sobbing sigh.
"I cannot look ap, Helen," he answered,
with a passionate tremor in hts voice-"only

Mrs. Preble continued to stroke bis forehead
softly, while she lifted her pale face to the sun?
light streaming into the apartment
"Look up. Morton-always look up 1" she
again enjoined upon the Invalid. "Daring all
these fourteen years of agony, I have not once
doubted either the goodness or the Justice of
Heaven. 'Blessed are they that mourn, for
jaey shall be comforted.' I believe that we
snail yet rejoice more keenly than we have
mourned, and that we shall come to a glorious
day of Joy beyond all this long sight of sor?
The moe of the Invalid lighted up with an
answering glow, and ne murmured:
"Glorious faith ! My wife, yon are Indeed a
blessed comforter I Perhaps, after all, you are
A knock resounded on a side-door at this
tocture, and the next moment Dr. Hutton,
the family physician, for whom Mrs. Preble
had sent, entered the room.
He was an old man, portly tn figure, with
white bair and beard, but with a fresh and
mady complexion, a pair of shrewd bise eyes,
and with an exuberant boyishness of manner

and a clear head. He approached the sofa,
after greeting the husband and wife, and lift?
ed the thin restless hand of the Invalid, feeling
"yulte a high fever," he said, after a brief
pause. "Worrying again, eh, Mr. Preble?
You are wearing yourself ont. Medloino will
?do you no good so long as your mind ia In Its

"Not now, doctor," inlet-posed the banker.

The doctor looked at Mrs. Preble with an
anxious, questioning glance.

"Ah, yes," "said the doctor, "1 remember.'

story. I can think or nothing else to-day, and

ty. Blt down."
Dr. Hutton drew up a chair and seated him- 1
ant; his face expressing the double solicitude
cf a friend and physician.
"You knew os fourteen years ago, doctor.'
'asid Mr. Preble. "We lived then where wu do
Mow, in a cottage on the site of this great man- j
alon. There were but thc three of us-Helen I
and i, and our three-year old Jessie. And it
wac fourteen years ago to-day that oar little
Jessie was stolen from us."
"I remember lt," said the doctor, softly.
**Yet might abe not have been lost, Mr. Preble ? j
She went out to play in the garden, if I remem
ber rightly, sod was never seen rrj yera ag
Six? might have strayed away-*
"So we thought for ? whole year, dort
toterrarpted the banker. "We never dre?
that she had been stolen. We searched evi
where for her, and offered Immense rews
for her recovery. I employed detectives,
all to know purpose. When our little Jo
ran down the steps into that flower-garde
and he pointed to the front of the house,
if the earth bad opened and swallowed her
we never saw her again.''
"She must have found the gate open, i

might have strolled down to the waters i
The banker fixed his burning eyes upon
physician's face, and whispered:
"I said we never saw the poor child ag?
I did not say we had not heard of her. I
was lost on thc 9th of August, 1854. Fe
year we thought her dead. But on thc ac
vcrsary ol our loss we received a written TD
Hage concerning her."
"A message P cried Dr. Hutton, starting.
"A mere scrawl-a single line In a hand c
dently disguised," said the banker. "Hen
He produced a dingy scrap of paper fror
drawer in the table, and held it up to the vi
of the physician, who read as follows:
"August 9, 1865. Jessie, ha! hal Jessie."
Dr. Hutton looked, with a puzzled air, fr?
the scrap of paper, which be turned over a
over, to the countenance of the banker.
"I can make nothing of thia," he deolan
"It is merely a date, with the name of ye
lost daughter. It tells me nothing."
"Nor did It us, at first," said Mr. Pr?t
"Then that name and that date, with the <
mon laugh connecting them, set us to tblt
lng. A whole year we agonised over t
dreadful problem, and then we received ano'
er message, which you shall see."
He thrust a second slip of paper, identical
shape and appearance with the first, befe
the gaze of Dr. Hutton, who read it aloud:
"August 9, I860, your jessie etill Uves."
The physician started, as if electrified.
"Ah ! this ls something definite-somcthi;
decisive," he muttered. "It convinced y
that yonr daughter was stiU living."
"Yes. doctor," said Mr. Proble, "and eve

If lt was stated in a novel many would not t

Mrs. Pr obie drew from her husband's brent
pocket his note-book, opened it to the prop
page, aad presented it to thc physician.
Dr. Hutton adjusted his spectacles, gian?
! over the page, and then slowly read the grot
of entries aloud. The entry the first year ls :

very pale. The banker breathed gaspingly
The physician regarded them both in friendly
"We shall hoar of her again to-day," said
Mr. Preble; "and ?bat will the message ber"
The mother averted her tace. Her bravt
heart faltered as that question xmoed in hei
"The writer of these letters ls unqucetion
ably the abductor of your child !" said Dr.
Hutton. "Have you any suspicion as to hit
"Not the slightest," said Mr. Preblc. "We
have puzzled over the problem for many years,
but we cannot guess who he ls."
"Think," said the doctor. "Have you no
enemy? I do not mean people with whom you
are not friendly-every stirring man bas plenty
of these-but a downright enemy! Is there no
man whom you knew Tn the Bast who hated
you? No one against whom you were called
upon to testify-no one whom you possibly In?
The banker shook his head. He had asked
himself all these questions repeatedly.
"I have no such enemy, doctor," ho answer?
ed witta sincerity of voloe and manner.
"And Mrs. Preble V suggested the doctor,
turning to her. "Have you no rejected suitor
who might be revengeful enough to desolate
your home f
"No," said the lady. "I was married early.
Morton was my first lover."
"This ls strange-very strange !" muttered
the doctor. "You are not conscious of having
an enemy in the world, and yet you have an
enemy-? hidden foe-a fiend in human form
-who lg working out against you a fearful
hatred ! And you have not the slighest sus?
picion as to whom he ls ?"
"Not the slightest," declared the banker.
"Not the slightest I" echoed Mrs. Preble.
"My husband had a step-brother who might
have been capable of this infamy-but be ls
"The handwriting ls not familiar ?"
"No. It is merely a rude scrawl, as you
see," said the banker. "It suggests nothing
exoept that it ls evidently dlsgidsed !"
Again there was a profound silence.
"Our child ls seventeen years old now," at
length murmured Mrs. Preble, ber voice trem?
bling.. "She is on the threshold of woman?
hood. No doubt, during all these years, she
bas yearned for us, wherever she may be, as
we have vcarned for her 1"
"But where ts she !" asked the physician
and now his voice was broken by hut deep
sympathy with the agonized parents. "Where
can she be ?"
"Heaven only knows," answered the mother.
"Perhaps in Son Francisco-perhaps in some
rude hut in the interior, with some obscure
farmer, and under a name that is not hers ! I
think her abductor would have carried her to
some lonely region of the interior, among the
valleys and mountains. Yet I never see a
voting girl In the streets without turning to
look at her. I never hear a girlish voice with?
out listening e.tgerly, half fancying that ll may
prove thc voice of my lost Je.vsie r
"Ob, pi:y ns heaven P sighed Dr. Hutton,
dashing a uood of tears from his eyes. "Will
this long agony never be over ?"
"Wu hope so. and even believe so," answer?
ed Mrs. Preble, with the firmness cf an unfal?
tering trust la God's mercey. "The last, mes?
sage wo received from our enemy scorns to
point to some kind of a change."
"True, assented Dr. Hulton, looking at the
message in question. "It is unlike thc others.
It says that his 'reward is at hand.' Ho means
either that he intends to marry your daughter,
or tuat he intends to duinnud money of you
for bringing her bock-or both."
"We shall soon know," said Mrs. Preble,
with forced calmness. "To-dav we sholl have
another message, no doubt. Wlml will it bo?"
The banker turned restlessly oa his sola, and
his fioe grew even paler.
"Whatever it is, let it come !" he murmured.
"Anything can ba born J bolter than this awful
suspenso. Let lt come !"
As ii his impatient words had precipitated a
orbits, a etvp waa beard on thc walk at this
moment, and a ring at the frontdoor followed.
"Another messenger I" breathed the banker.
A servant soon entered, bearing a letter,
which he extendeJ to Mr. l?reblc. saying:
"The bearer is io the hajj."
With an eager gaze, the banker glanced at
tho superscription of tho missive.
"It ls from hint f he faltered.
He tore the envelope open.
ItoonUlued a slip ot" paper, of wrU-tnowi
shapo and appeartuoe, upon which wa?
aorawlod a single Baa, Lo. aa equally well
krrcwTj handwriting, which tie banker ex?
hibited to hi? wife and the physician.
This line was as follows:
"August f, ?868. At six I uHU COB /"
A shock of wonder and horror shook the
"Will call I" cried Hr. Preble, starting to bis
feet, and glaring wildly around.
"Is coming here !" cried Mrs. Preble, also
"IteeemB so," said Dr. Hutton, O?R eyes again
reverting to tho message. "He will be here at
six o'clock; and see ! it is six already J"
Even as he spoke, the clock on the mantel?
piece commenced striking the appointed hour,
and at that instant heavy footsteps resounded
in the hall, approaching the library.
"It ia he cried thc doctor, also arising.
As the last stroke of thc hour resounded, thc
door leading from the hall again opened.
One long and horrified glance cast the bank?
er and his wife in that direction, and then she
fell heavily to the floor.

Easton & Co.'s Cotton Report, for the
Week ending November 19.
NIW YORK, November 20.-THE MARKET.-In
our last report thc market closed quiet at 26c for
middling uplands. Saturday thc market was very
firm with small supply; sales 2517 at 26c. Mon?
day prices improvod ; sales 1024, middlings at 25M
cts. Tuesday the market was firmer, with a good
demand from exportera; sales 3323 at 25J?C Wed?
nesday better prices were paid, owing to receipts
being smaller; sales 3340 at 2SJ?O. Thursday wac
a close holiday here. Yesterday tho market open?
ed firmly but closed weak ou rumors of lower
Liverpool markets and estimates ef large receipts;
sales 1392 at 2&Kc
During the week prices have advanced hem and
In the Southern markets Kc, and Liverpool closes
3-lOd higher. The interrupted telegraphic com?
munication with the South, and tho uncertainty
about receipts have caused buyers to operate
sparingly. We understand that thc tributaries to
New Orleans have been very low, which accounts
for the small receipts there. As the rivers are
now rising, on account of the storm this week,
we may expect Urger receipts soon. New Or
now stands 1795 behind thc same time last year,
and thc receipts there averaged 31,844 bales for
tho twelve weeks, from 20th November, 1868, to
5th February, 1809. In our estimate publlHbcd
last week we put down New Orleans 15 per cent,
higher than last year, and if we do not see 37,000
average per week for the next twelve week?, with
foll rivera, we shall bc disposed to believe that
our figures are too high. We con see no disposi?
tion on ?he part of planters to hold back, andas
we said last season, wc do not think that plant?
ers ever do hold on the plantation. As a rule, the
cotton Ls forwarded to the interior towns or the
ports as soon as ready, and If planters arc dis?
posed to hold, they prefer to do so where cotton
can be insured.
Tho general belief in lower prices still con?
tinues, both here and in Europe; maur short con?
tracts are uncovered and spinners hold off be?
cause very heavy receipts are expected. Suppos?
ing these expectations are realized, and the re?
ceipts arc heavy, will there be anything more to
wait fore Will not large orders be given out by
all who have held off for the right time, and what
chance will these orders have of being tilled
when public opinion as to thc safety of the prices
of cotton changes? We advised our friends to
co a m en oe buying and then following thc market
down, because that policy has been the best for
the past two seesoas and we think it will succeed
this year also, lt ls very certain that all cannot
be fortunate enongh to buy at the lowest point.

OCTOBER REPORT OP A OKI CULTURAL BUREAU.
Thc extract given by thc Press from this report
caused thc trude to believe that thc estimate of
2X millions would bc exceeded. Wc have seen a
copy, and it differs eo much from thc public ver?
sion that we give some extracts. After mentioning
the Increased area and fertilizers, as indicating a
larger crop, it goos on to racnt'on the damage
done by drought and caterpillar, and concludes as
follows: "Almost universally the later pickings
will be greatly reduced In quantity, and thc pick?
ing season will bc over unusually early, except
on plantations short of labor. Detailed and com?
plete estimates of thc aggregate yield have not
yet been calculated. There ls no reason to be?
lieve, from an examination of tt>e October re?
ports, that thc preliminary and conditional esti?
mate hcreteforo made, of 2,750 OOO bales-thc only
ono made this sexson, newspaper reports to the
contrary notwithstanding-can be exceeded, in
thc next report will be given a detailed summary
of the yield, after Anal reports are received and
carefully examined." Wc hope to publish in our
next thc estimate of the department.

YORK, OCTOBER 13,1867.-DlAR Slit-H is with
much pleasure that I Bay to you that I consider
the PLANTATION BITTERS of untold value.
In the fall or 1867 I was taken with Chilis and
Fever, with thc most severe pains in say chest
and head. It was with great difficulty that I
could breathe. My lungs were greatly dis?
tressed, and there was severe pain In my right
side, by spells. I could hardly get up from my bed.
I called a doctor who attended me all winter with?
out thc least benefit. About thc first of August 1
commenced using your Plantation Bitters-a
wine glass full three times a day-and have used
it most or thc time since, and I am now well and
strong, able to do all my own work and the care
or a large family. Yonrs, Ac,

?Sr WE LIVE IN THREE CLIMATES.
In this country wc have, at different seasons of
the year, the temp?rature of three climates. Our
springs and antumns have a softness and mild?
ness that belong only to the Temperate Zones;
our mid-summers are torrid, and our mid-winters
almost arctic In their frigidity. These changes,
involving a variation of from ninety to one hun?
dred degrees of Fahrenheit daring the year, are,
upon the whole, conducive to health and long life,
but they tend to entail upon us some distressing
complaints which can only be escaped by the ex?
ercise of dnc care and Ute use er a proper anti?
dote ween the system is predisposed to contract
them. The chief and most annoying of these dis?
orders ls dyspepsia, once supposed to be incura?
ble, but which, since the Introduction of H08TBT
TBR'S STOMACH BITTERS, now about twenty
years ago, has proved te be a perfectly managea?
In tbe spring and fall, but more especially In
the lau, the symtoms or dyspepsia are generally
aggravated. The prof ose expenditure or the ani?
mal fluids nuder the burning BBB ot summer, is
apt to leave the stomach weak and indolent and
Incompetent to thc task or perfect digestion, lt
requires a tonic which will rouse it from Its leth?
argy and brace and invigorate without irritating
or inflaming it. This tonic has been provided ba
the wonderful vegetable preparation which has
replaced in a great measure, all the oki palliatives
formerly prescribed by physicians, under the
false idea that thc disorder could not bc radically
cured. Thc success of UOSTITTER'S BITTERS
in all the varieties of dyspepsia, acute or chronic,
has effectually exploded this fallacy, and it ls now
recommended os a specific for indigestion by
some of thc most eminent members of thc medical
