Obligo me, deare-t; make the sacrifice tor my sake; boju-t civil, Ia-kno more; be only just civil to Servoi, -o that he may not grow tired of feeling that he is in your way, and keen awav altogether." "Aiiytliingyou a-k me to do for your sake, my dear, kind, indulgent iiusoanu, you ma be sure I will do. You shall see how gracious I wiil be to-day with your friend." M. de MoiitonvilIe.'imprinted a kiss on his wife's forehead, and as she bent oyer tlie tapestry Iraino at which sue was working, food for a few minutes lost in sdeut admiration. "She is jo very hand'somc in the very prime of life, too in Paris, surrounded by women who deceive husbands that arc. young, ha:idom", fond and eonfid iug; yet. -lie, this beautiful Ernestine, i content to hide in her own homo, bv the side of her old husband, unconscious of her own attraeiions or disdainful of the admiration that might surround her. 1 kuo".vheis a little cold, stilt and prudish, but everybody has a fault, and what bet ter fault could a man of till y, married to a woman "u-t twenty-five, have found in a wife under such circumstances? Such a fault is almost a virtue." That day. when Armand Scrvois came to oiy his accustomed visit he had no cause'to con plain of the reception given him by the mistress of the house ; she was all graoi.Misnessand smile-anid when .I. Sorvois, tpparently confiiseil and as tonished at his usual greeting, at last rose to take leave, Mme. de Montonville completed I er husband- happiness at the change by inviting his friend to re main to dinner. 31. tie Montonville could scarcely refrain from expressing hi- gratitude'to his wife, then and there, but in order to celebrate this condescen--iouon horpart and.hi'ifricnd'spresence, he rushed frnn tho room to see that his valet put the champagne to ico and brought "up the choicest JJordcaux from his cellar. M. de 31ouonvilJe was absent but a few minutes evidently the eonvereation had not bcen-verv animated between Armand and Ernestine, for he was reading a newspaper aud she profoundly preoccu pied witl tho roses, that were growing andcr her skillful iuigers. ( X. de Montonville was suite right with regard to thoAWOaratof convefsA tkm between lti,wife,.tis friend dur ing his sJvwn -from the room; it h.id consisted of but two words, one apiece, but the tone had given eloquence to this ono, and to the eyes expression and meaning. These words were " Armand," pronounced by Ernestine; "Ernestine," spoken by Armand. It was well that 31. do Montonville had not heard them. From that day Mmc. de 3(ontonvillc, in obedience to her husband's wishes, re mained gracious, bnt coldly gracious, to Armand Servois. In order to propitiate her, Armand was constantly bringing flowers and books to tbe house not that he ventured to present" them himself to her, but he gave them to SI. uo Jiouton ville, desiring him to pretend they all came from him,lcst,knowiug their source 31mo. do -Montonville should reject them. In this way Ernestine had many agreeablo surprises, for 31. do Monton ville thought the matter a good joke and entered into it, intending ono dav to have a piece of fun with Ernestine, when he should think his friend .sufficiently estab lished in her favorlbr him to declare the tmitli. It was impossible to find fiiiilt with Ernestine's manner now nothing could be more discreet than her manner; po lite, but never familiar with Servois; yet siillicicntly cordial to takeaway all awk ward feeling :i husband's friend must feel when he knows he is not u welcome vis itor to the wife. In this condition of things, the friends grew gradually more and more confiden tial, until Monsieur tie .Montonville at last consulted Armand on his pecuniary affairs. 31. do Montouville, told him that his marriage so late in life had greatly displeased Ids family, who had all relied on legacies from the old bachelor. 31 me. dc 3Iontonville, and tho beautiful Ernest- mc,had had no firtune,coiiseijiiently they had been married without any .settlement or contract, and the laws of France, at tho death of her husband, gave back all his fortune to bis family, unless by some special settlement before his death he should leave his fortune to his wife. M. dc montonville was a halo and hearty man of titty, and considered his lease ot life good for at least twenty years ; still lie could not but feel occasional twinges of remorse when he thought of the condi tion in which he would leave bis wife, shouid he by any chance happen to die. Amongst the feelings ho confided to Ar mand Servois was this one, and Armand immediately, in tho most magnanimous maimer, advised his friend instantly to make such legal arrangements as should prevent his family from seizing his for tune nftor'liis death. "3fme. de Mohtoiiville-does not like me, I kiiow; .she hu-iheen unjust toward me, I know," said Servois, " but tor that very reason I will bc'scruplously just to her; besides'sho miglft think if you left her unprovided for, that my'ctiuneil had influenced you for my n.ik,-as'wcll as hers; therefore I entreat vou do not de lay." 37ot more than two weeks after this sage advice, 31. do 3Ioiitonville returned home one day with a bundle of papers in his hand, which he throw into Erne lino's Lip. "There, my darling," said he, "tbe-e papers insure 3011 comfort and independ ence, after I am gone from 3011. You owe this principal to Servois' advice; so don't snnb him 11113- more." "I can not think what right 3Ionsicur Servois thinks he has to interfere in niy attain. Talc back the paper, tlear hus band. I do not like to think of the fu ture 3ou refer to; I know L am j'ounger than 3ou are. but the 3oungest do not alwiiys live the longest, and I can not contemplate existence without 3011." Hero Ernestine turned abruptly away, for she was a proud nerved nature, and hated all show of feeling or emotion, but 31. de Montonville saw the quivering lip, and beheld the tear hastily hidden liy the handkerchief. -Going up to his 3ottng wife, ho embraced her tenderly. "3ly darling," said he, " no matter how uiani 3ears I have to live, I -hall never forget the happiness of tho 3cars we have lived together. Come, dry3our tearsjdarling; and come with mo to the Tuileries. Tho chcsimt trees are in full bloom, the orange flowers arc all in per fume, all the world will be out ; come, I shall be quite , "proud to show my hand some wife." Ernestine elegant, graceful, dressed with admirable taste, was -oon pacing the crowded ailc of tho Tuileries, her husband on one side of her, and Armand Servois on the other, for the3 had met him (no strango chance, for it was tho hour when all Paris -was in the garden) almost as soon as they had joined the promenade under the chcsiiut trees. It was a hnc summer day in June, somewhat Miluy; lieneath the thick fo liage ot tlie clicsimt trees, tlio sudden overclouding of the sk had scarcely been perceived, when all at once a loud crashing peal of thunder burst over their heads. Earnestine's was not a tinfid na ture, but thunder was one of the few things .he wa afraid of. Uttering alow ciy, as tlie thunder crashed almve, .-die rushed up, not to her husband, but to .-servois, ami soizing nis arm, lint lier face close on his -boulder. If iheA- hal not cen the lightning that had preceded this burst of thunder, 3lon de 3IontonviIIc, liy hi- wife- iu-tinctive action, received through hi braiu a flash ot moral lighting that revealed all at or.ee the -iat and the present. 3Ionieur de Montonville was a profound thinker; a man of great e-cjierience and penetration, affection for hi wife had a!nne deprived him of all these faculties. 3ow'they all came back to him. lie knew Jlhat in moments of fear and danger, a woman's instinct led her to seek protection from the being she most loved a daughter rnhe to her mother) a young girl to the man she loves best, a wife to her husband; but Ernestine had not gone to her hus band, though ho was so nearjeer. hut forgetting him had sought safetr"in the arms of another. Servois was tho first to recover lm presence of mind, and in a few quickly whispered word, ho roused Jirnestinc to a sense of her folly. With a laugh at her ' own cowardice, she hastily turned from him, and took her husband's arm, and then all three quickened their steps to escape the rain, which now fell iji tor rents. 3roiiieur de 3IontonviIIe manner to wards his wile underwent no change ; he was as kind, as tender toward her a- ev er; but somehow a feeling of coldness crept gradual- between Servois and himself. Armand could trace it to no distant circumstance, but lie felt that Ids friend was changed towards him, and suggestions of his own conscience com ing to his aid,hc thought it prudent as well well as expedient to leave Paris for awile, his absence giving a specious excuse for ceasing his visits to his friend; accord ing ly he departed on an artistic tour to Sw ft-:-erlaud and Italy. .' 3Ionsieiirde -Montonville then, witfinut' previously consulting his wife, solicited a reconciliation with his relation, aiul received them as mn-t cordially welcome visitors to his house. Ernestine, of course, did not approve of .this change; she knew how her hus band's relations had opposed her marri age, and how little they loved her; still it was a part of her system never to op pose her husband's wishe, and somehow there was a decision id his manner that gave her to understand that little would be the opposition he would brook. So went In a whole 3ear. Whether Ernestine was luqqn or miserable it was impossible to say; her usual cold and serene manner in iio'wav changed and tie tied the watchful c'3'es of those around he;. Hut Ernestine h:ld 111:1113 hours, of agony; maiy sleepless nights of fear and doubt. Armand had left Paris, Armand bad left her; he had thought it right,' prufluut: ho had done it for her sake, convinced that some latent suspicion lay at the bottom of her husband's heart; but be bad been a whole 3ear awa3 a whole 3-ear: true, hail written often and as p.is sionatuly as ever; but he was awav ; tiic miglit be separated for 3'ears; she wa vcrj-lotiulj-; might he not forget her? Then what consolation could she lind ? Xoiic, for ho was bound for life to an other. It was in one of thc-su tcruhly despoudiiig moods that Ernestine, bolt ing her door, proceeded to seek the 01JI3" consolation lell to her his letters. She bad hidden them in a largo closet, where hung her dresses, hidden them first in a small rosewood desk, of which she had the IC03- and next in the back of 11 -hell" over which she had so skillful- nailed a curtain (as if to protect tliu drosses from tho damp), that no casual observer could siispctt the existenco.ot the hiding place. "Now she was alone; she might weep, and tears streamed down her cheeks; she could go to him for comfort, she cirtild not find it indiM letters. j.Sh- opens the closet door, draws back'thef curtain so cunningly contrived, feels for the box, lint no box can. -lie hud ; IiaslilV with a beating heart she throws down every obstacle, and taking a Jight gar.es eagerty into the aparture. Thero is noth ing there, tho box is gone. In an agoi-3' of fear, with the wild hope that she might have left it in some other plate, she searches around; it is not there, and what is more, a leather case, containing a -mall diamond necklace and other val uable trinkets, is gone, too. She had been robbed; this conviction was a great relief to Ernestine. " Yes," said she, "I have been robbed. Tin is nothing but tlie work ol a com mon thief, who thought to find some pre cious treasure in the box. 1 am safe. The thief will destroy the letter-, for they would betray him. f cai corneal the loss of the diamonds, but mv poor letter-, 1113 only consolation I J,ilc is harder now than ever, but life must be endured." And so she steeled her heart and com jKised her features, and went forth to plav lier part in life's hard drama. Two 3"e,:irs went liy. One da3 Madame tie 3loiitouville, walking with her hus band in the Champs Ety-cc, beheld Ar mand Servoi dash hhcr tin horseback. Her heart beat, her features were loo well schooled to betray any emotion. 31. tic .Montonville evident ty had not seen him. Jle was 111 Paris that was happi ness, a r.13 of happines, at lcat ami Ernestine waited patienttyaud trustfulty for a sign from him. She wa afraid to speak of Armand to her lia-band, but every da she expected he would sax to to her, "Armand is returned,' and was prepared to receive the inforvation with coolness ami indifference. Put time went on without ono word from her husband, no secret sign tjuu her lover. At length the wearinc-s of her monotonous life was variedjy the sudden illness of her husband, who wa struck with paralysi?. Ho did not linger main d.vys, though watched with the tendcre-t care In bis wif and with jealous otliciousJiess b3- hi relations. "Farewell, clear Ernestine,' .-aid he, feeling hi la-t hour approaching. "I have not bech ungrateful ; 3011 will find that when m3 will is opened. 3I33-3-0U be hapjry." Tlfe will was not to lie oie:icd nntil three tv eek- after the funeral. Such, the notaiy said, had been tho wih of tho de ceased. T 3Ime. de 3lontonviile had not been a widow more th.ut-a week le)"re she re-i ceived a jia-stonatc letter from herjovxr, renewing all his vows of love, and swear ing that he-had never for an wtsnt ceas ed to adore her, attributing his silence and absence to hi rcmor-o at deceiving hi- friend, and to his t'cAr ftr her. June, de 3lontonville loved Annand Scrvois; half his argument were -aper- jncs. to the unspjLny of botn known fluons; she would lrave believed bun at, to be a supporler of FJiiglsnd. Put the the very first word. She could nit him, of cour-e. at tltat time, but she wrote to him; she pledged bcrelf to be 1 hi wift in dm limr- tmsttrr- fnim hcT bnalmlV wonl 10 her. hL. -vldM thai tho iritnlil l,n'n nr-rusa wrMI a irtrr in him. .. V -. w....a ..skaa.vu a, -. v. ....-- " Ofcoursei-oa will, my dear Mx lame,'" said he to himself. I kfiowfcltrr than von how much, for filicUHed the claev. llalf of De 3oatoavjl,c5 fortaac is aLost eight hundred Jlbou-and francs; that is not o bad. :idd& to mine; we can have a decent establishment. .Now to keep quiet until the vear of mourning is er p.rcd." At the time appbinted the relation all aembled, and the will ww opened nnd read. There were mutiy legacies, maiiy handsome bequests. At length the name of 3Ime. Montonville was pronounced. There wasa thrill of expectation through all the assembly. "I give and bequeath fo 1113 wife Er nestine a small rosewood box, the content- of wliiili she will value more than aimhing ele I could leave her, and which will, I hope, be thcTncans of injur ing her happiness for lire. The only con dition I miikc- is that she shall open the box in tho presence of 1113 friond, Ar- ituaiKt Acrvois. Ernestine blushed deeply beneath hei widow's veil, but otherwise gave 110 -ign of emotion. That evening, at the request f the law 3er, 31. Armaud Sorvois entered Muic.de .Montonville- draw ing-room. "Hero is'the key, Madame," said the liiWA-er. " You are to o-kmi it; wo are not to -co tbe contents." Ernestine took the key, n duplicate to her own her husband had made, u:id opened it then fell on a -ofa and hurst into a torrent of tear. The lawier, with a feeling of profound delicacy, left the room ; but Armapd, going up to Hrncs tine, drew her toward him, breathing words of consolation and lo-e. In a few moments Ernestine calm. grew " WI13 are 3011 thus agitated, 1113 own? what ! what did the casket contain ? " "31 3-jewels, and fort-two letters writ ten b-31m." .Monsieur Scrvois said vcty little, and wont soon awa ; it was not expedient that at s'ich a time he should remain long with the voting widow. The next tiny 31. dc 3ontonvillos family signified to Kriio-tiiie" that she should leave the premises, and her hus band's nephew politely told her, that bv a confidential letter from his uncle, he wits empowered and enjoined to p.iy her six, thousand franc a 3 car during her lifetime. She who, with her hiikbaud, bad shared a revenue of nearly cight3 thousand francs a 3 car. Put Ernestine murmured not; she haughtily complied with all conditions, and us proudly con sented to receive tho pittance loft lier.

The statement of .Mr. Charles Francis Adams, that the American people chcri-h an unilving hatred toward England, find- occasional corroboration in thu actions of our leading politiei-ui-. Nor do we here refer to congressional resolutions in favor of Feiiiani-m, nor to the national anger at Alabama depredations: we go back to a generation jut passing awav. No man better appreciated England and her insti tutions than Daniel Webster, and 'et he was unwilling to bo known as one who would publicly praise her. When .Mr. I'hiy was nominated for the presidency for the last lime, a mass-meeting was ar ranged in Poston, on the Ileacon-Strcet side of the Common. An open-air stand was cretted for the speaker, and .Mr. Webster was asked to pre-ide, and to open the meeting with a speech. It wis a pleasant, sunny day, and all 3Iaoa"hu sett wa.- there to do honor to ihcocc.i :on and the nominee. A- tar as the voice could re.iih from the stand, nothing could be seen but :t den-e ma-s of ex pectant bearers. If we recollect aright, I-'uglnnd had just taken oneofoiir lishtiig-ves-els in her water, and the I'l'mot-racy were loudty dcclar ng that, if tlc-v -succeeded in thu coming canvass, neither England nor air' foreign power hould dare to touch an American citizen. A .Mr. "Webster slowly arose to address the vast audience, a man in the crowd at tempted to catch his eye or ear, throw ing up his hands, and exclaiming: "JIr. AVcbstcr! 3rr. Webster!" Cries broke out all around: "Stop 3'oiir noise!" "Shut 3our mouth'" cie. Put 31r. Weliter quietly turned toward the in truding voice with : " Well, sir, what is it?" "I want to know, 31 r. vcbter, if Knglaud or Canada take one of onr citi zen and put him in their, jails, will 31 r CL-13-, if elected, lake him onl again, if h has 10 go t war for it ?

Is it possible that our country in its t be made desolate, barren and bleak again! Wo cannot treat the man who vtdlfulty set the prairie on fire, except as an eueinv to !ii countrv and to tl.w welfare of fu ture generation. He destroys that which he cannot replac. Jl is right and often hecessun to set out lire lor self defence, yet it 111:13- accidentally get be 3ond contral, while partly- are" burning tire-guard. This is another thing from 11 man setting out tiro to bunt otf the range, for fear some one ma3 want to herd on or near his premises, or to burn out some one ho may want to have re venge upon, for some imaginary wrong. .... ' . e Hie man who will ilclihcrateiy set the prairie on tire, is none too good to set lire to a mint's house for a like purpose. Put a littlo of the country is burnt oil a 3et, and we implore ev erv- good t-itiscn to act ono ol .is a vigilance committee to pre vent mo iiirtncr burning ol tac prairies. Tho prairie lires are ourgreatest enemies. Had our valleys been titsj jVum thi.i all destroying clement, we lo-tL3 would see moru ihiii uuiiL-s-esamiiuii 11. 11 llio .. , 11. 1.. ... lire- nun oeeu Kepi out irom the nver and small streams, S-llhio t-ntiuiv- would have d Mible the amount of timber sin has now. A liroot ol tills I.iet mav be soen on 1113 old plaee,(iiow JIr. I!al.ers,)near the Saline river bridge, west side. In the fall of l!t-', all the 3'oiing umber was from two to four feet high. Sincothat tune no tire has been in there, and now there i a fine grove; the trees from thirty to forty feet high, and six to eight inches 111 diameter. In ail tlu lowbends of the rivers and streams we lind the ro- main.s of forests. And as soon as th tires are kept out, a 3'oung growth of for est trees will soon spring up. It -honld be the polh-vof thu-e living on tho l-ot- tonis to protect their timber, mid let all glow that will. It should be tlie pol.cv of every ono living on tbe uplands, no matter where, to lent! a helping baud, to protect the foret tree. The ninn who protect the forc-t and cultivates the for est trees, is.the benefactor of tulliiv gen emtions. The man who ets out an or chard of forest trees, docs not a!w avs en jov the iruit inereoi: vet no does a noble :ift. He plant that other may reap. He has but reaped where otlieril have planted. Ho only fulfill- the laws of nature and destiin. Our broad and fertile vallev, our table ami uplands all possess the elements of life for man and boasts-; all tdothed with rich grasses. The soil will 'produis: grain and fruits, Tho gr,t.- will, whcti freo lo stock, make bone, fat. sinew's, hoofs, horns atidiuilk Then, why de-tniy tho essential elements ol lilc so wickedly? .Ag:iin,'the gra the blanket of tho earth, the mulch ol tho soil to hold the moisture, the early and latter ranis, the dews, and lo retain beneath its foliage tho most cs.-cnti.il elements ol life: water to notirf-h and supply the w.vits of plants and nttiiuul. When th" jirairic- are b'irtit oil', it. open the poic-i of thu soil so that thu south wind, wh.ch prevails in tin jurt of the couufrv. soon carries all th" moisture and leaves tlie noil a drj" tnp. W lien the moisture isall aborbcd anil curried away, na'ure is left without ono of its duel auxiliaries to prodtn en :ievv t rop ofgnis-, until it gets a new supply from the uomlt. 1 here is no question that vtcsulier more or It"- for the Want of rain hv'oiir prai rits bung burnt oh during tlie fall, win ter, and' spring seanou) ol tho 3 car. Some burn off tho grass to have early fettling. That ii all a mi-takc.

Everv man can pro!ectthiinlf if hi' will coninitncu in time However, some acrtidenls are liable to occirand mm h i- ditmrgedone.
