He had felt this, as re gards the life which is to come, when he should be disencumbered 01 his mortal body, buthe had not understood what a deep joy the truth of this principle would cast even into this present existence. None had taught him, by the sweet teach ing of entire sympathy, that all true af fection is but present in the germ here, and has its full fruition ouly in eternity These thoughts rose like morning light on his soul as he stood gazing thoughtfully upon her, whilst sue, now that the enthusiasm which had cal led forth the expression of her own bright faith, had died away, had yielded to her womanly timidity, aud stood, half shy, half embarrassed, not knowing how to take leare of the companion sae had so stranarelv eucouutered. He saw this and, with a ready courtesy, opened the door for her and bade her good night, thank ing her gently for the worus or comiori she hail spoken. She expressed a hope once more that they should meet again, and so vanished from . his sight the white figure passing away into the shad ows like some lair aream into tns uar- ness of a deener sleep. He remained standing upon the spot where she left him, clasping ins nanus titrhtlv on his breast. "Meet again," he repeated thought fully, echoing the words she had utter ed. 'l will not desire it! I will not seek it! Surelv it were the greatest peril that ever has crossed my path. How have I labored for peace these many years aud have attained it ouly by stripping my life or every hope ana wisn con nected with this world. I have so veil ed mv eves to its allurements, from which I ain forever exiled, that all the living things within it have become to nmviiiir shadows ill the twilight u' as moving Sliauows "'K"V ill the sunlight of an eternal hope. ' .But if the smile of those sweet eyes came falling on my heart; again if the spirit that looked through them be indeed as beautiful as I believe it if, day by day, I see the outward loveliness and feel the inward beauty infinitely fairer-it could not fail but 1 should grow to love her. 1 I the deformed. outcast !

I will believe that I have slept ami woke again, and this night shall be to me but as one in which I have dreuinnt a brighter dream than usual." lie resumed nis namiuai composure as these thoughts passed through his mind. The resolute calm which was the habitual expression of his face returned to it, and quietly he left that old hall where the lirst scene in the drama of Lilias Ran dolph's life had been enacted. sue soon was lyiug is nouun slumber the deep sleep of an innocent heart that is altogether at rest, ui throtie-h all her dreams that night there went a voice whose echo was to haunt her soul forevermore. CHAPTER VI Lilias. like most blvtlie young spirits, never could sleep airer wie morning beams came to visit her eyelids, and, despite the unusual excitement of the nrecedinir nigut. sne was roaming through the house at a very early hour, looking bright aud fresh as tne uay-; dawn itself.

To see him again like wise, not once but otxen.was a uetermin- atiou which she could not fall to form after the conversation she had had with sense bound to this, and it did but deep- I11U1. IlGr tCUCIVUO DUU1V en her loniring to draw near to one so doubly stricken. Occupied with these thoughts. Lilias passed through the drawing-room to a veranda which open- I from I .and where she conld enjoy the fresh air whilst sheltered irom wio una. I'hem were benches placed there, and a T.ilina moved towards one of these, she was startled by perceiving a motionless figure extended upon it. II Was AieiHCia, anpiircuiajr in a. fntind slumber but to Lilias sne seemeu like a corpse laid out for burial, so pale and rigid was her face. The cold, white hands were folded on her breast as In dumb supplication, and they were scarce stirred by her slow breathing or the dull, heavv beating of her heart. Her great distance. Her hair, matted with dew. was clinging wet to her temples. aud her bonnet lay on the ground beside uer. Lilias cazed at her with a feeling al most af awe. wondering what was the secret of this strange cousin's life, and a slight movement which she made awofce Aletheia. Slowly the eyelids rose and moved, as the uower oi tuougnt stole in to them, a depth of pain aud or mute eu- I -j , , , , . .

"I am so sorry lawoice you," saw tne latter breathlessly, 'l did not mean it, indeed. You were not resting well, but I am afraid you did not wish to be awakened." "No." said the low voice of Aletheia, which seemed to come from her lips without stirring them, "lor it is the ouly iniurv anvone can do to me." '.'An injury," said-Lilias, in her inno cent surprise, "to wake on this bright mornine-and beautiful world?" "Bright and beautiful," said Aletheia musingly, "how those woru.i are uku dreams of long, long ago. My days have no uartin them now. But think no more of having awakened me. It mat ters nothing, and it would have been strange indeed if such as you had known how many are roused to the morning light with the one cry in their heart 'must I, must 1 live again ?"' "I cannot conceive it," said Lilias, "I always wish there were no night, it seems so sad to go away and shut one's eves on all one loves and admires. "Yet, believe me, to . some, sleep ts Drecious more precious even than death lor an it seems so line-ail augei 01 rest and mercy. The brief forgetfulncss of sleep is certain, whilst in death the soul feels there is no oouviou. . It was to the fair young Lilias as though Aletheia were speaking in an unknown tongue. Her unclouded spirit under stood none of these things. But in spite of her prejudice against this strange per son, she felt struck witli pity as she saw lier fcittijig there, with the wet hair cling ing to her eold white check. "You are very tired, I am afraid," of she said, "you have walked a Jong dis tance?" Aletheia started, and the pale lips grew the FAMILY PAPER, PAIXE S paler, as she exclaimed, almost tpassion atelv "you have been watching me!" "Xo, Indeed," said Lilias, distressed at the idea, "bow could you think me capa ble of It ? I did not see you until I came into the veranda. But f guessed you had gone out early, because your clothesere all wet with dew." Aletheia rose up. " Lilias, you have come to live in'the same house with me, and therefore it is necessary I should make to you one pray er. I do beseech you, as you hope men will deal mercilnliy with your life, grant me the only mercy they can give to mine leave me alone forget that I exist live as if I did not, or were dead. I ask nothing but this, to be uniuolestedand forgotten." She turned to go into the room as tshe spoke.but she was stopped by the appear ance of Gabriel, who was creeping, with his quiet stealthy step, towards her his blue eyes, usually so soft, glowing with the intensity of his ardent gaze. She paused and looked at him 3adly; "Gabriel, you heard what 1 said tovLi lias just now. It is nothing new to you. You know well what is my own desire the petition 1 make to all. Why, then, wlil you live, as it were in my snaaow why will you persecute me?" lie made no answer but by folding his hands in mute apneal, and bowing his head humbly over them. She passed him in silence and went into the house. He followed softly after her, and Lilias was left alone. The poor child drew a long breath,and felt at that moment an intense desire to be at liberty among the Connaught hills again, where the thoughts and words of ' the rough country people seemed free and fresh as the winds that blew there. ! All seemed so strange and mysterious In this house. She had been brought sud denly into contact with that human p.is- sion of which she knew nothing, and felt as if she were lu the midst of some en tangled web, where nothing plain or reg ular was to be seen. Her momentary wish to escape, however, died away as the recollection came upon her, borne as it were by the wings of memory, of the haunting voice, and solemn strain. Nor was she left alone to her own reflections. Sir Michael, who so rarely left his own rooms, came in search of her. and fairly monopolized her during the day. He persuaded her to stay with him in his laberatory, aud seemed to take infinite pleasure in hearing her talk of all that liad been joy to her in her past life. And truly it was a strange sight to see her in that dark little den, with her in nocent face and fair white robes, sitting so fearlessly at the feet of the old man, telling him stories of Irish banshees and sunny nooks in her native valley, where her nurse said the faries danced all night long. To hear her talk, and to have her sweet presence, was to Sir Michael as though some fresh breeze were passing over his withered soul ; and the tones of her voice were so like those of his long lost brother, that at times he could dream they were side by side again, both young, full of hope that was to. bear fruit, for him at least, in bitterest despair, and with passions yet unchained from the depth of his heart. The first pleasure he had tasted for years was in Lilias' society, and he inwardly determined to enjoy as much of it henceforth as possible a res olution which we may so far anticipate as to mention he rigidly kept, to the sore discomfiture of poor little Lilias. He had a deeper motive for it in the movement of jealousy he had witnessed iu his beautiful wife, when he took his neice in his arms the day before. Indif ferent as she was to him, she was too thorough a woman to relish the idea that the sole and undivided dominion she had maintained over his heart was to be di minished by the entrance even of the most natural affection. She need have had no fears. The passion of a life was not now to be tempered by any such in fluence. Lilias was to him simply an oc cupation for his restless mind. She pre served him from thinking, better than his chemical experiments, and, above all, she gave him the exquisite delight of feeling that he had power to move nis seorniul wife even yet. So Lilian was uuouieil jruill tliab unv iu rc 1119 vuiiauiiu .1 1 - . 1 . . ,1.... .A hi. ...... . 1 companion. He did not suppose sue would nice it, though he did not guess, as she sat by his side, how restlessly her poor little' feet were longing to be away, bounding on the soft, green grass. But he resolved to compensate her for her daily imprison ment by making ner an neiress a tie termination subject to any change ofcir cumstances that might cause him to alter it, which he did not conceal either from her or the rest or tne ramiiy Wo are anticipating, however. The first day of Lilias probation is not over, Very wearily it passed, because his eager mind was bent on seeing MuDert Lyie, and not only did her uncle never men tion his name but she found no oppor tunity of asking any one who and what he was, and when she could meet with him again. It was not till tne evening that she found the family once more as sembled, and as she gazed around amongst them all with this object in her thoughts, she rert that tnere was out one who Inspired her with any confidence, or to whom she could speak freely. This was Walter, with his firm, frank counte nance and winning smile, and she was verv srlad thev found themselves acci acci-1 dentally alone in the music room, where Sir Michael left them, after listening, with evident pleasure, to her voice as she sang to him one .of her plaintive lrisn melodies. Lilias turned around hastily to Walter, with such a pair of speaking evej that hs laughed j,ayly, and answered them at once "How ean I help you ? I see you have a great deal to say." "Oh. ves. cotisi 11 Walter. I have been longing to speak' to you. You are the only one iu all this house I am not afraid of. I want you to tell me so many things!" "Aud what things, dear Lilias? This is rather vague." Oh, every tnmg aoout every Dociy, thev are all so mysterious, "Well, so tney are," ne saiu lauguing. "I find thein them so myself, I can quite fancy how you feel, like a fly caught in some web, and surrounded by spiders of all kinds and dimensions, each weaving their separate snares." "Precisely, and now I want you to ex plain all the spiders to me. You must classify them, and tell me which are ven omous aim wnicn are not, sue. saiu, lauzhins; along with him, "I wish I could.', answered Walter. "but they are quite beyond me they are not in mv line at all. I assure you. never keDt a secret in my life, but I will do mv best to enlighten you, I can tell vou ctrtain peculiarities at all events, Suppose we make a sort of catechism of it you snail question and 1 snail an swer." 'I "Verv well,' said Lilias, entering into the spirit of the gayety, "and so to begin why does Ldy Randolph look so strangely at Mr juicnaei, ana always seem so anxious to go out of the room when he comes in ?" Because she hates him," replied Wal ter. . . How very strange. People seem to hate a great deal at Randolph Abbey, but is it alwavs their nearest relations, as in this case?" "Why no! As you proceed in- your catechism I doubt not we shall have oc casion to mention certain hatreds in this household, which are in no sense affec ted bv natural tie.' "Well, to proceed," said Lilias, Hwhy does Gabriel, hour after hour keep his eyes fixed 011 Aletheia, with the strange look that makes me fancy he thinks she would die if he were to cease gazing on her?" "Because he loves her," answered Wal ter. "But she does not love him," exclaim ed Lilias, with a woman's instinct. ..'Most certainly not." , herp Js so much I have to ask about DEVOTED TO LITERATURE, SCIENCE, VlXLiE, LAKE COUNTY, OHIO, SATURDAY, MARCH her. Tell me why it is that she ha such imploring eves. I never, on a htiuiau face, saw an expression of such mute en treaty. I saw it once in the wistful look of a poor deer wuicn tnev Kiueci on our Irish hills. I reinembt-r so well when it lay wounded, and the game-keeper came near with the knife, it'lifted up its great brown eves with just such a dumb. beseeching gaze, but that was only for a moment. It soou died, poor thing, but with Aletheia, that mournful supplica tion seems stamped on her countenance, as though the fear was with her like a life-long companion." "Ah! If you ask me about Aletheia," said Walter, "I am powerless at once. I can tell you nothing of her. She is'a greater "mystery in herself than all the others put together. This only seems plain to me, that her existence is, for some inexplicable reason, one living agony." "If I thought so I should be so angry witli myself for having felt prejudiced against her, which, I confess, I have done, for a reason I could not name to you. She is so cold and statue like, I thought she seemed lost to all human feeling, but if it be sufl'ering, and not insensibility, which makes her move about amongst us as If she had been dead, and forced unwillingly to live again, I shall trv to overcome the sort of awe with which she has inspired me." "1 believe it matters little how you feel respecting her, for you will never, conquer her impenetrable reserve. Even poor Gabriel, who seems fascinated by her to a marvellous extent, has ever struggled vainly against her unseakable calm. It is seldom. I think, that one human being can so lavish all his sym pathies upon another, as he has done on her, without gaining some sign of life at least. But he tells'me it is as thotign the living soul within her were cased in iron. lie caniiot draw it out of the dungeon where she seeins to have buried it, to meet even for a moment ' his own ardent spirit." "But I hardly wonder at this, if she does not love him," said Lilias. "You mistake me," said Walter, "I do not expect that she should return his affection, but she seems utterly unaware of its existence. She appears ever to he so intent in listening t3 some voice we cannot hear, that all human words are unheeded by her. Those .deep, beseech ing eyes of hers, are ever gazing out. as though the world and all the things of it, were but moving shadows for her, because of the greatness of some -one thought which is alone reality to her. Yet that there lives a most bin ning soul within that statue of ice 1 can no more doubt than that the snows ofVEtna hide, but do uot quench its fiery heart." "And does no one know the secret of her life?" asked Lilias. "Xo one, that 1 am aware of none at 'east now living. That her father did. whose idol she was, I have reason to think from some remarks of Sir Michael. He himself, possibly, knows something more that we do, though assuredly not the real truth, nor more than some ex ternal peculiarities of her position. I have heard, however, that before she would ever consent to come here, even for six months, and that with the chance of being chosen . heiress, she made cer tain conditions with her uncle respecting the liberty she was to be allowed. I pre sume this to refer chiefly to a strange visit which she receives one day in every month, on which day alone 1 believe lias any human being seen her moved.'' And who is this strange visitor.'" said Lilias. TO BK CONTINUED.) ANKCDOTES OF PUBLIC IHKX. BV COL. J. W. FORXKY. NO. LVII. Is it not true that the public men best abused are the best remembered ? Certain ly Andrew Jackson looms up through all the mists and misrepresentations of the past like a great statue founded as if to last forever. Witness the tribute paid to j,js memory by Henry A Wise 111 his book bitter ist-Dublished book a - - . enough as regards Benton and others, but abounding in compliments to the he ro President, of whom' Wise, during his early career in Congress, was perhaps the most violent assailant. Witness, al so, the extraordinary memoir of James Parton, the most caustic and remorseless of critics. Never shall I forget the eu logy of George Bancroft, pronounced twenty-six years ago, while he was Sec retary of the Navy under president folk, after the intelligence of the death of Jackson had been received in'Washing- ton. The affluence of genius never pro duced a more exquisite offspring. The rapidity with which it wa9 prepared, the fervor with which it was pronounced, and its effect upon the public mind, ex cited the wonder and delight of the fol lowers of Old Hickory ; and if you turn to it now you will find It surpassed by notlung in the interesting volume wuicn preserves the "Jackson Obsequies." At the end of nearly a generation, we find the ardent expressions ot a partisan cab inet Minister equalled by the moredelib- erate praise or tormer political adversa ries. Why is this? Simply because An drew Jackson's inspiration through his whole lite was a passionate love ot the Union a fixed aud even ferocious deter mination to put down its enemies at whatever hazard or cost. Henry Clay and Daniel Webster live in the atlections of posterity more because they were ani mated by the same principle, than be cause of the fame of the one as an orator and the other as a statesman aud jurist They forgot party when their country was in peril, burying or postponing animosi ties as against even their severest foe, Andrew Jackson, when lie struck the kev-note, and declared that "the Union must and shall be preserved." Some thing like tiiis was the scene between George Wolf and Thaddeus Stevens, some thirty-six years ago, wnen, in tne inuisr of the memorable anti-Masonic excite ment which Stevens headed against Wolf. Dallas, Rev. Mr. Sprole, and other Masonic dignitaries even to the extent of threatening them with imprisonment Wolf and Stevens forgot their enven omed quarrel in the ardor with whicli they together pressed tor ward tne great cause ot popular education, jno name can perish Irom memory or History tnat is truly identified witn civilization and liberty. I was talking of these things - 1 the other day witli an old Ohio Whig, at 1 preseui a j.epuoiicau, wueu ue rciateu au anecdote of Old Hickory which I had I never heard before, and which I think worth preserving. After Jackson's firsi 1 1 election, in 1S28, a strong enort was made to remove General , an old Revolutionary soldier, at that time Post- master iu one of the principal New York 1 towns. He had been so fierce an Adams - 1 man mat rue uacKson men uetermiueu to displace nun. ne was no stranger to Jackson, who knew him well, and was conscious of his private worth and pub lie services ; but as the effort to get hi place was a determined one, General resolved to undertake a journey to Washington lor the purpose ot lnokiii after au case, Silas Wright had just left his seat as a Representative in Con gress from New York. Never was the Empire State more ably represented. Cool, honest, profound and subtle, Mr. Wright was precisely the-man to head a movement against the old Postmaster. His influence witli lackson was bound less. Jlis lorcu iu (leuate made 111 111 a match for the giants themselves; aud as Mr. Van Buren was then Jackson's Sec retary of State, the combination was powerful. The old Postmaster, knowing that these two political masters were against him, called upon the President immediately ujion his arrival, and was most courteously received and requested to call again, whicli he did several times, but nothing was said amnitthepostotlice Finally, the politicians finished their pro test and sent It lorward to Mr. Wright, with the request that It should be deliv ered at the first opportunity. The old Postmaster beard from his friends at home that the important document was 011 its way, so he resolved on a coup de main. Tne next day there was a Presi dential reception, aud among the early visitors was General . After a cor dial greeting by Jackson, he quietly took his seat and" waited until the long train of visitors had duly saluted the nation's Chief and passed through the Grand Kat Room on their way home. The President turned to his venerable guest with some surprise as lie noticed him still seated 011 one of the sofas, and entered into familiar conversation with him, when, to his amazement, the old soldier said : "General Jackson, I have come here to talk to you about my oltlce. The )olitician.s want to take it from me, and they know I have nothing else to live upon." The President made no reply till the aged Postmaster began to take off his coat in the most excited manner, when Old Hickory broke out with the inquiry: "What "in Heaven's name are you going to do? Why do you takeoff yonr coat in this public place?" "Well, sir, I am going to show you my wounds, which I received in lighting for my country against the English !". "Put it on at once, sir!" was the reply; "lam surprised that- a man of your age should make such an exhibition of himself," and the eyes of the iron Presideut were suf- lused with tears, as, witnout another word he bade his ancient foe good eve ning. The verv next night the crafty and able Xew York politician called at the VI hite House and sent in his card. He was immediately ushered into the presence, and found Jackson in loose gown and slippers seated before a blazing wood fire quietly smoking his long pipe. After the ordinary courtesies had been exchanged, the politician opened his budget. He represented the district from which the venerable Postmaster hailed ; said tiie latter had been known as a very active advocate of John Quincy Adams; that he had literally forfeited his place by his earnest opposition to the Jackson men, and that if he were not removed the new Administration would be seriously injured. He had .hardly finished the last sentence, when Jackson sprung to his feet, flung his pipe into the tire, and exclaimed, witn great vehe mence: "I take the consequences, sir; I take the consequences. By the Eternal ! I will uot remove the old man I cannot remove him. Why, Mr. Wright, do you not know that he carries more than a pound of British lead iu his body?" That was the last of it. He who was stronger than courts, courtiers, or Cabi nets, pronounced his liat, and the happy old Postmaster next day took the stage aud returned home rejoicing. BBICH1II YOUNG. BY' K. 8. BAKTON. President Young, as he is called by his disciples, is President and Prophet of the Mormon people, and of "The Church of Jesus Christ of Lutter-day-Saints," and stands prominently forward as one of the most remarkable men xf the 19th century. He was born in Wittingham, Windham county. Vermont, on the first day of June, 1801. His father, John Young, was a revolutionary veteran, and served in three campaigns under Wash ington. The family consists of six daughters and five sous, of whom Brig ham was the fourth. In early life he was connected with the Methodists, and at that time he followed the occupation of carpenter and joiner, painter and glazier. He was jirsl married in 1824, and in the spying of 1830, first saw the " Book of Mormon," of whicli he after wards became a firm believer and prom inent supporter. Jn April, 1832, he was baptized a member of the " Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints." Dur ing the previous January" he had visited Columbia, Pennsylvania, where there was a branch of the church making a lengthy stay that he might become bet ter acquainted witli its principles. This is characteristic of President Young, who makes up his mind only after ma ture deliberation, and then he is very firm, holding to -his opinion. or belief with great tenacity. In the following September his wife died and he started for Kirtland, Ohio, to 6ee Joseph Smith, the Mormon proph et. The ;iueeting of these two men one the founder of the church, the oth er destined to become his powerful suc cessor as its leader took place in the woods near Kirtland, where the prophet had gone to chop wood, and whither Mr. Young followed to make his acquaint ance. A few evenings after this first meeting, it is recorded that Joseph Smith publicly said that the time would come when Brigham Young would rule over the church. From tins time Mr. Young became a zealous and successful advo cate of Mormonism. Early in 1835 he was ordained one of the Twelve Apos tles of the Mormon Church, on the or ganization of that quorum: and subse quently became president of the Twelve, through the detection ot Thomas n. Marsh, who was his senior iu years, and. for that reason, previously held that of fice. As one of the apostles. Mr. Young filled several missions, travelling exten sively through the Eastern States, preach- ng, proselyting, building up and regu- lat'.ng Dra'iches ot the church, etc. On the 9th of March, 1840, iu company with tl. v.- Kimball, later -his first counsellor n the presidency of the church, George A. Mnitn, ins present nrst counsellor, and other missionaries, he sailed from New York on a mission to Great Britain. and arrived in Liverpool, April 6th. He spent a little over fourteen months 111 England, during which time several thousand persons were converted, and the publication, of the Millennial Star. the first foreign Mormon publication was commenced, it was sued as a serial, has been continued in that form, and issued regularly from that tune until the present. On his return from haigland, he filled other missions, travelling and preachirg iu the East, his family remaining iu Nau- voo. He was absent from that citv when Joseph Smith and ids brother Hiram were murdered 111 Carthage. He imme diately returned to Nauvoo, with other prominent members ot the church, and proceeded to take such measures as were deemed best for the protection of the cit izens ot .Nauvoo and the Mormons 111 the neighborhood, who were hourly threatened witn extermination. Early in 1846 it became imperative to vacate Nauvoo, and Mr. Young directed the fleeing thousand of the Mormon church m their westward journey, him self and many others of the organization leaviug, to seek, for the htth time, a new home. The bulk of the Mormons made their way to the Missouri river, through the then wild, unsettled country, now forming tne btate ot lowa. and remain ed temporarily located during the winter of '40 and '47 at Council Bluffs. In 1847, Mr. Young led a band of pio neers westward, toward the Kouky Mountains, and on the 24th of July of the same year arrived in the valley of the Great Salt Lake, where a settlement was immediately formed. In the fall of IH17, lie returned to the Missouri, and lu the spring of '43, after having been accepted as Presideut of the church, he organized a large company of his people, and proceeded with tlieu'i to the new settlement in Salt Lake Valley. There being no organized government in the territory where they settled which then belonged to Mexico the people formed a provisional State, witli the title of Doseret, of which Mr. Young was unanimously elected Governor, wlic( position lie hd fur nearly two years, until the government of the Uni ledjStates to whom the country had been ceded ly treaty extended its laws over it, anu a lerrltorial government was provided bv act of Congress. Tills oc curred iu October, 1850, and Mr. Young was appointed uovernor ot I tall, as the territory was then named, and continued to rule It until J8;7. President Young has taken n prom! JOURNAL. AGRICULTURE, neut part iu all public improvements, in everv piau calculated to facilitate com munication between the territory and the Eastern States; materially assisting In forming several express companies aud stage lines. He built several huud- red miles of the Western Union Teles- graph, graded 130 miles of the Union Pacific Railroad, .and has ever offered his assistance to every enterprise of the kind which had a material bearing on the interests of Utah. lie was also the principal mover in the construction of tiie Deseret Telegraph line, which con nects the northern and southern settle ments of Utah, nearly five hundred miies apart. He used evsry effort "to push for ward to an early completion the Utah Central Railroad, of which he is the President. His great influence over his people was strongly illustrated by the piomptnesH with which they responded to his call to build the grade on the U. P. R. R.; men, teams, etc., coining from all parts of the territory. Nearly every settlement sent its quota to help in fin ishing the work. Early iu May, 1869, President Young organized a company to build the Utah Central Railroad, from the junction of the Union and Central at Ogden, to Salt Lake City a distance of thirty-six miles. He was chosen President, aud, on the 17th of the same month, ground was broken with due ceremour, Brigham Young and the chief dignitaries of the Mormon Church, being in attendance. So vigorously was the building of the road prosecuted, that early in the spring of 1870 it was completed aud ready for business. For nearly a year the receipts barely quailed the outlay ; but the foresight of. President Young was justified by the rapid increase ot general business and development of mines south of the city, and this is now one of the best paying roads in the country. During the past year a company was formed tor extend- ug the road south and southwest to the Colorado, and a bill introduced into Con gress for granting land for that purpose, which, however, tailed ot passage. Nevertheless, the people, in the same spirit as in the case of the Utah Central, have entered vigorously upon the work, nd the Utah Southern Railroad is al ready completed to Sandy Station, 25 miles south of the city, to which point daily trains are now running. Meanwhile, civil troubles were begin ning for President Young. The ope li ng of the mines had caused a great in flux of non-Mormons, and the adjudica tions of the Supreme and District Courts of Utah had placed the control of legal matters 111 the hands, ot tne u. t. dis trict Judges. Under a statute of Utah, prescribing severe penalties for " lewd and lascivious conduct," an indictment was tonnd 111 the Third District Court against Brigham Young, and he was formally arrested by Marshal Patrick, and gave bonds in the sum of $5,000 for his appearance tor trial. 1 tie trial was first set by Chief Justice McKean for December 4, but as President Young had taken his usual winter trip South for the benefit of his health, on the rep-' rcsentatiou of his counsel, the Chief Jus tice postponed the trial until January 9, 1872. During his absence the Grand Jury had found indictments against him upon the charge of murder and immediately upon his return he was again arrested. Brought before the court, it was then held that bail could not be received and ho was remauded into custody. The privilege was accorded him, however, that he might select one of his own houses in whicli to reside and this being the subject of this sketch is now held, a close prisoner in his own resi dence, to auswer to the various charges that have been brought against him. A TOUGH STORY A correspondent of the Chicago Tri bune claims to have recently interview ed a band of prospecters who were on their way to seethe "Golden Mountain" of tiie Apaches, iu the interior of Ari zona. Directions for finding this desir able spot had been given them by the great Chief Cochise, whom they had liad the good luck to capture, and who revealed the secret at the price of his re lease. The further and more startling revelation of Cochise is thus given : A party of Apaches, while lying in ambush one dav in the latter part of December, 1836, in Cluehiiahua. Mexi co, on the Rio Grande, across the river rom what is now known as the town ot El Paso, Texas, watching a travelling cavalcade as it passed a clump of email trees, saw one of the number spring from his horse into the dense cnapparai and disappear from the view of the horsemen. The cavalcade fired a few shots at or towards him, and half adozen dismounted and pursued in the direction he took, nut or no avail. rue escaping man ran directly towards, where the Apaches lay in the bushes, and ran into their midst. They seized and bound him, mounted, and lashed him onto a horse. and at once took flight. They; traveled towards the Apache, chief town by a cir cuitous and concealed route, aud reach ed it after six days travel. The prisoner was much alarmed at first, but, finding that his death was not to be immediate, he seemed to put his mind to studying out some plan of escape, but they kept him securely bound till fiey arrived in camp. Then they de cided to keep him till a grand fete day, some months ahead, aud then put him through the gauntlet and end his life in a grand carnival. lie ior some time was as restless as a captive bear, walked np and down his small enclosure, and talk ed to himself incessantly. But before the day arrived for his taking off this is the captain's term, not tho Indians he had become somewhat resigned to his captivity, had learned something of the Apache language, anu given tnem some thing of his history. They got interes ted in him, aud promised turn his lite 111 return tor his solemn promise that he would never attempt to escape. He married the chiefs daughter, and, on the death of the chief, became chief himself. He had four sons and a daugh ter. The eldest son became chief in his turn, and is the chief who is the subject of our storv. The white chief tang'it them, while -among them, tne secrets ot the (treat tsplrit, and these secrets pave enabled, them to make the Apaches tiie strongest tribe i 11 the west; to pass through the country of the white mini lu safety every where; to obtain information of their enemies and their movements always.and from their very enemies themselves ; and by pass-words and signs, to know an enemy or a friend as far as seen. Thev always have kept, and still keep, one of their educated half-breeds iu the camp of the whites, and, by the secrets of their great society, lie is always able to keep thein informed ot every movement ot any kind, and of every plan tor attack o them as soon as that plan is known to the chiefs of the enemy themselves. And when captured, thev are almost alva sure to effect an escape, released Uv some member 01 tins Society among the eneniv The groat white chief told them that; the society extended all over the world ; taught them all the ceremonies couneccd with it; taught their maidens to make the badges and insigna worn by the init iated, and on certain days, the 24th day ot June, an 1 some others, they walked in procession, and held a grand dance at night. Thev lielieve him to lie the son of the Great Spirit. Ho is buried at the Golden Mountain, and his grave is wal led and covered with gold, and is thei giicped place of worship.

The reason of his imprisonment was on account of bis go- AND GENERAL NEWS. 2, 1872. nig to publish a book divulging the se crets of the great society. He was kept a prisoner at Fort Niagara till Septem ber 19th, when he was taken in a close carriage, and driven via. Buffalo, X. Y., to Hennepin, Illinois, on the Illinois iver, ' and' hence on a flat-bout to the Misissippi river, down which he floated to New Orleans. ' There he was placed 011 a vessel and sailed to the month of the Rio Grande river, and proceeded up that river on horseback to JKI Paso, where the Apaches found him. His captors in tended to iive him into the hands of some Jesuit priests among the Indians, near where they captured him. His cap tors passed down through Mexico and escaped. That great white ohkf was the man supposed to ' have beeti murdered by the Masons, William Morgan, and the uoject ot tins story, his son uochise. INTERESTING DISCOVERY. made in the south of France. A distin guished geologist has found in the Py- eniiees, only a slight distance below tiie soil, the remains of prehistoric cities. The discoveries are very numerous, and will help In pushing the domain of his tory still farther back into the past than it has ever gone before. Previous to 1S54, we hail 110 idea of lacustrine habi tations, but in that year the winter was particularly crisp and cold in Switzer land, and the level of the waters was lowered in all the lakes. The inhabi tants Of Meilen had profited by the low ater to raise a little dike on the borders of Lake Zurich. Driving down some piles, they encountered obstacles, and found that piles and enormous thick oak planks had already been driven down. Between the pieces of wood they dis covered stone and bone instruments, clumsy pottery, etc. These utensils bore such a resemblance to those iu use by the primitive people, that it was at once con- luded that the Meilen discoveries were of the 'greatest antiquity. The " first men " of that country were supposed to have built their habitations above the water, and if the hypotheses were just. the same vestiges of another age would be round at the bottom ot the principal lakes. These conjectures were soon con firmed. The fishers remembered that on former occasions their nets had been might upon piles driven in the lake bot toms; and pottery had also been found, but had been ascribed to a late date. At last everv one went to hunting in the ikes, and out of the depths of the Hel vetian lakes they drew up to the light of modern day a civilization heretofore un known. In Switzerland, more than two bund ed " stations," as the discoverers called them, or reiics of primitive villages, were found. But they did not all be long to the same epoch : some were class ified as having been built in the stone age, others in the bronze age, and still others in the iron age. 'The discoveries in the Pyrennees disclose habitations of the same general character as those un der the Swiss lakes. In all the western part of the Pyrennean chain these habi tations are very numerous, and belong to the stoue age. The Archeological So ciety of that district is making efforts, at great expense, to develop these discove ries into a species of history of the peo ple who Inhabited the houses. TACT AND TALEST. BY H. S. COLSOX. Talent is something, but Tact is every thing. Talent is serious, sober, grave and respectable; tact is all that, and more too. It is not a sixth sense, but it is the life of all the five. It is the open eye. the quick ear, the judging taste, the keen smell and the lively touch; it is the in terpreter or an riddles, the surmounter of all difficulties, the remover of all ob stacles. It is useful in all places and at all times; it is useful in solitude, for it shows a man his way into the world ; it is useful in society, for it shows him his way through the world. Talent is pow er, tact is skill ; talent is weight, tact Is momentum ; talent knows what to do, tact nows how to do It; talent makes a man respectable, tact will make him respected ; talent is wealth, tact is ready money. For all the practical purposes of life, tact carries it against talent, ten to one. Take them to the bar together and let them shake their learned curls at each other in legal rivalry ; talent sees its way clearly, but tact is soonest at its jour neys ena. latent nas many a compli ment from the bench, but tact touches fees from attorneys and clients. Talent speaks learnedly and logically, tact tri umphantly. Talent makes the world wonder that it gets on no faster, tact ex cites astonishment that it gets on so fast. And tne secret ts, that it nas no -weight to carry; it makes no false step, it loses no time; It takes all hints, and by keeping its eye on the weather cock, is able to take advantage of every wind that blows. lake them into the church. Talent has always something worth hearing, tact is sure of abundance of hearers; talent may obtain a living, tact witt make one; talent gets a good name, tact a great one ; tal ent convinces, tact converts; talent is an honor to the profession, tact gains honor from the profession. Place them lu the Senate. Talent has the ear of the house, but tact wlus its heart and has its votes. It has a knack of stepping into place with a sweet silence and glibuess of movement, as a billiard ball insinuates itself into the pocket. It seems to know everything without learning anything; it has no left hand, no deaf ear, 110 blind side. It puts on no looks of wondrous wisdom, it has 110 air of profumlito, but plays with the details ot place as dexterously as a well tajight baud flourishes over the keys ot the piano forte. It has all the air of com monplace, and the force and power of genius. OPIUM S3IOK.ING. A recent French medical journal cou- taius an interesting paper on opium smoking. The habit, so prevalent lu Uht- na has been introduced in France, and it is stated that a club of young men has been formed in Paris for the purpose of indulging in this dangerous practice. Hie habit subjects the beginner to seri ous inconvenience, such as nausea, vom iting, giddiness, and violent headache. t he opium tor the pipe is prepared ac cording to secret formulas, and acquires a seini-tliiid consistency resembling dense oil, possesses a sweet taste, and has tne appearance ot extract ot juniper The dose for a day's smoking, in the be ginning, amounts to one hundred and fifty grains. The effects of this drug are to excite in the smoker, first loquacity and next stupid joy, ending 111 a pro found slumber, lasting for several hours. during which the pulse falls very low. The opium smoker bcoomes indolent, loses the inclination for work, and at last ends as a confirmed idiot. In the latter condition the opium smoker has no appetite tor lood, becomes very lean, and his complexion assumes a peculiar hue THE DAMAGE IO PARIS. At the last sitting of the Municipal i;ouncii ot I'aris QU.auU demands were discovered to have been sent in by suf- tcrers from the seiges, asking i'01 in demuities, the total of whicli amount to 220,000,000 francs, that is to sav. 120.000, 000 for Paris, and 100,000,000 francs tor the suburbs. It appears, however, that the Parisian claims, when revised, will be reduced to 68,000.000 francs, and that- or the suburbs to 77,000.000 francs. As far as Paris is concerned, it is stated that 'he Prussians damaged the city la the extent of 2,000,000 francs, the Versailles troops to tho extent of U,000,000 francs, and that it res did the rest.
