The Demon of the Yorkes. BY MISS CAMILLA WILL IAN. CHAPTER V. Nlshe did. First Miss Chase sank exhausted in reaching the W house. It would be inhuman to sav anything against her resting "herself," Then, as soon as she was able to speak, the young lady was so grateful to the housekeepc r for letting her come that poor Martha was con founded, and wondered if site had not, in some way, without being conscious of It, .invited this guest. Miss Chase, moreover, never mentioned money, but spoke entirely of the favor of being per mitted to come. She next explained that mamma was looking out a place amoner the mountains, and if Miss Yorke should conclude not to let her stay there, 'she could join mamma and the girls. The upshot of the matter was that Martha did not see how she could turn the young lady out, since, after all, she only wanted to stay a few weeks. 'I don't believe I need write to Miss Yorke," she said to Miss Boardman. "Miss Chase will be gone before an an swer conies." "She will stay here till she is turned out," said the companion, vehemently. "You may do as you like about writing; but I shall write to Miss Purccll this very day." "The house doesn't belong to Miss Pnrcell," said Miss Barton, stiffly. Miss Boardman- humbled herself im mediately. In her excitement she had gone too far. The thought of that hand some, fascinating woman in the same house with Mr. Aylier made her heart sick. Already she found it hard enough to win any attention beyond mere civ ility from the miuister; what could she hop for if Isabel Chase should be for ever In the way, with her beauty and her boldness, that looked so like inno cence? The poor spinster's soul was up In arms. In spite of her first gloomy anticipations, she had spent a peaceful happy winter, and wasin nosortofhurry for. Miss Purcell to return with her sharn tontfne and impatient ways. Now to have it all broken up, and by the per son whom most slie disliked, was too hard. I'm afraid the poor woman went to sleep that'night with red eyes, though Miss Chase had shown no signs of haste in commencing her depredations on the hearts of the men in the house, having kept her room, and had a cup of tea sent up to her. The next day a letter went up to town fmm the vouiiK lady. " Vent, vidi, rir.tC'.i she. . wrote, in a triumphant scrawl. "Now send Mr. Freeman down here as soon as you can, Boardman is In agonies, and makes hersw cross eyed watching' me and the minister at the sime time. I have commenced bat tering her with kindness, but, unfortH liately. I have fired so many little ar rows at her in times past, that she is suspicious,- However, I shall succeed I have complimented her improved looks and said that country air inii.st.be benefi cial, and that I hoped I might grow as much younger as she has, I also hinted a little lest about, the minister, and (hot) boldly assured her that she need fear no interference on my part. If she withr straws her hostility. I will Jet him alone tor a time; but if she makes herself dis agreeable, then I will htrowher soul by making eves at him and asking him to teach me theology. Send down my white dresses as soon as they are done up, and don't put anything ese iu the trunk. Above all, send Mr. Freeman down here." At first Mr. Freeman resolved that he would not be sent down to- Yorkeville, though the temptation was great. He had heard for a long time no particulars of the doings and plans or the travelers, and had no means of learning directly, save bv going to Yorkeville; but he did not like the look of following Miss Isa bel. "If you should happen to be going mat way, 1 would like to send a utile package to Belle; that was the way Miss Chase sent him. "She lefta pink coral set to be mended, and I don't quite like to trust it to the express." Mr. Freeman resisted some time; then there came a languid, melting Julv: everylwdv was out of town" who could get out ; the Chases were just off lor the mountains, and he really needed a little trip to freshen him up. So he put the pink coral set in his pocket, and took tle cars down to Yorkeville, arriv ing there at evening. The next morn ing he went up to the great house on the ingl hill. Martha received him in a very peculiar manner, a doubtful medium that hovered between cordiality and coldness, seem ing glad one minute, and augry the next. 'Miss Chase was walking down the lawn towards the river," she said. "Would he go down to meet her r or should site send a message? ' "Neither," the gentleman said, glad of this opportunity. He had brought .Miss Chase a uttie package irom ner mother, and would wait a tew minutes to see if she did not come in. The truth was that Miss Isabel, hav ing received notice from home, and be ing morally certain that Mr. Freeman would call on her that morning, had donned one of her prettiest white dresses and gone out, in order to be found like a uvtnph among the trees. She knew that she would make a beauti ful picture out there in the green, and she had no doubt that he would seek her. ' Meantime her treacherous swain was closely questioned Martha about her young mistress, and trying to elicit some information from her confused and un willing replies. She thought that Miss Yorke would come home before the fall, she said. She lelieved she wad well. Further than that, he could find out no thing; and since Miss Chase persisted in being a nrmnh, and being found among the trees or nowhere, the gentle man presently tooK leave in some m nature, leaving the piuk corals in Mar tha's hands. "How he does love . her !" thought the housekeeper, looking smilingly af ter him. "He carss nothing for Miss Chase. And won't she be in a pet when she comes back aud finds that he wouldn't take pains to find out to get found!" In a few minutes Miss Chase came in in something nearer a rage than a pet, having seen - Mr. Freeman's depar ture. Whv didn't vou tell lum where I was?" she demanded, rudely, snatching the package the housekeeper offered her. I did tell him. but he didn't care about going out, and lie wouldn't let me send," Martha replied, giving as good as she got. "lie must nave been in great nasie: the young lady said, angrily. "Where washegoing?" "He was going to Mrs. Jepson's," the housekeeper replied, looking at the an gry and arrogant beauty with a cold and steady gaze. . "He was In no great haste that I knew of. He was here fifteen minutes or more." "So long!" cried Miss Chase flushing a little. "You might have sent for me. What in the world was he talking about?" "O, he was asking about Miss Yorke," said the housekeeper, carelessly, turn ing to go ahont her Dusiness. Isabel Chase looked with flashing eyes after the woman till she was out of sight. "So she is in the business!" she muttered. "ne minus I care, ana sne is setting that pale-face against me. O, I would like to bum the house down about her ears!" She drew her crisp, rustling dress of snowy lawn : about her, and stepping from a long window into the garden, walked to and fro there in sight of the hotel, laying her plans. He was of the Jcpsous' party, then, with which she had little to do. They were, or affected to be. intellectual, and she' was fashion- able. In their circle, a mere country .. . .1 . 1 . i 1 I scnooimtstress, wno coma say me wrees alphabet and construe a verse of Latin would be of more consequence than the richest merely rich lady, or the most fashionable merely fashionable lady in the land. ' Miss Chase had been politely treated by them, but no more, and for her more intimate associates had been forced to depend on Margrave avenue. Her promenade having become tedi ous, she went in the house and upstairs. Miss Boardman had gone in town to open and air Miss Purcell's house, as she did once a mouth, so there was no one to torment. Mrs. Merton was oft On some expedition in search of ferns aud mos- ses. -Air. and Jirs. ramnursi were mm ply a stupid old couple, and Mr. Aylier was In his study. She would go down ami show her pretty dress to him,' since there was no one else to see it. lie naa not come to breakfast with them, and she could inquire after his health. As she paused a moment before tap- ning at his door, she heard voices inside, or rather she heard Mr; Aylier talking to some one, and in return heard a soft murmur that might be a woman's voice, Who in the world was there? It could be no one but that stupid Mrs Parkhnrst, who was always asking something about her soul. Bali I Miss Chase was about turning away without knocking, when the door of the studv was hastily opened, and jvir. Ay lier appeared within it, but Mr. Aylier as she had never seen him before. His face was flushed ond smiling, his eyes bright, his whole inanner inll or joylul excitement. He started on seeing her, and almost shut the door in her face, then immedi ately opened it again aud apologized, but did not invite iter in Did vou knock? Did you wish to see me?" he asked, confusedly "I was about to viiock when I heard you speak, and concluded that you "were engaged," she said, coldly, highly dis- pleased at ins lnnospiuiuie appearance, For not only he did noi invite uer in, but he stood with the door in his hand, as though to prevent Her entrance. He looked at ner smilingly, sne thought, admiringly, as she went away, but did not oner to detain ner.- "I wont speak to him for a week," she resolved: "and he-shall sec that it is quite different with me silent at the table, i nere woman c dc a woru worm hearing if I didn't talk.

It was some re lief. ' . ... . ... Iet not tne reaaer ne too nam upon her. A handsome woman without an admirer is like a queen without a king dom, like a fish oof of water, like any uncomfortable and misplaced object, and she cannot be expected to display a sub timit nhllnsnnhv under the : deprtvation any more than otiier people do under their afflictions. Everything had gone wrong with her that day, from the mo ment, when she was awakened by the tantaljjting and insulting song of a mos nnifo. that had left a red blotch on the side ot her white chi where he had taken an early breakfast, to the shuUjug of Mr. Avller'sdoor in her face. She went up stairs again, not that she wished to eo there, but because 1 she wanted to move. "If they didn't shut their old house up so, one might have a little amusement," she -muttered. And even as she spoke, glancing towards the forbidden doors at the right, as she went up stairs, she saw one standing half open. "I suppose Martha is airing their worm-eaten taoestries," she muttered, triumphly. "1 have a great mind to go in." She did not go in however, but, her own room being opposite, she set her door open, and waited to see who was about. There -seemed to be no one. She heard no one. Martha's voice came to her from the garden, and neither of the two servants who assisted the house keeper had any business up here. "Why should I be afraid?" she ex claimed, recklessly. "I suppose they have no dead men hidden there. - lean look in, at least. I don't suppose there is any impropriety." But though she did not suppose there was any impropriety in getting a peep into the closed rooms, Miss Chase took care to get it as privately as possible. She left her own door open to have a place of speedy retreat, and crossed the hall on tiptoe, glancing in all directions. The tipper -corridors were tleserted ; there' was' no' sign of any one in the lower ball; or In the room she was ap proaching. ' She reached the threshold, caught a glimpse of open windows, from winch draperies ot purple silk were drawn back to Admit all the light and air, of superb carved bedstead and bur eau, and a velvet carpet that was a bed of violets ; but as she bent forward to get a better view ol the room, the door came to with a bang in her face, which for a moment blinded her. She reeled back. and quickly regained her chamber. "What shall 1 do if I am marked?" she thought, in a fever of distress and anger, bathing her face with rose-water, and looking closely for any sign of a bruise. Fortunately there was none ex cept at the edge of the forehead,-where the hair would-cover it. -"It never rains but It pours," she said. "I'm glad no one found me there, though. Of course it was the draught shut the door. I wouldn't have them think, that I have any curiosity to see their wonderful, mysterious rooms alter tneiroid in misti ness." Miss Chase had, early in her visit, ex pressed to the housekeeper her desire to see the whole house, and had been told that Miss 1 orke locked the rooms when she went away, a sufficiently plain re fusal, siuce it was well known that Martha aired them every month. Miss Chase was slightly suoerstitlous, as ill persons are likely to be when they are anxiously awaiting events in which they have much at stake. Since the day seemed determined to be unlucky, she thought it better to be on the safe side, and avoid great trouble by shutting her self up in her room. "1 will be sick," she thought, as she locked her door. closed the blinds, and seated herself 'to sulk and wonder where Mr. Freeman was, and if he meant to content himself with the call he had made. He is mean and ungrateful, after all the politeness he has. received at our house!" she thought, resentfully. By a singular coincidence, Mr. Free man was at that moment entertaining precisely the same thought. He had always been cordially received by the Chases, and had spent many pleasant hours in their society, and it certainly would nave lookeu better it ne had taken pains to see the young lady that morn ing. "I will go up this evening," he thought, to quiet his conscience, Then, as his disposition was a generous one, and he was ashamed- of being a little cowardly, as he had to own he had been, he straightened himself and made a de claration ot independence. "Why should 1 care it people choose to call me a lover of hers,- so long as I know and she knows that J am not.. It isn't her fault, and I need not treat her . coldly on ac count of the babbling of mischief makers. I will certainly go to see her this -evening and; not be afraid to act as a friend." "You can't do better than to remain in Yorkeville a few weeks," Mrs. Jepson said to him. This little aside of his had been while she was talking to somebody else. "Mrs. Brainard takes a few board ers, and it is a charming place; every thing orderly, a good table and gay com pany. It will be so mucn more home like' than Margrave: House;': We have some very pleasant projects for this month. Will you stay ?" I am willing to be persuaded," the gentleman answered, smilingly. "There . 1. . 1 1 a. T -. -1 1 i . 1 . are obstacles; but I will give you leave to demolish them if you can. In the first place, has Mrs. Brainard a va cancy ?" "She has two," the lady said, "sne has been keeping them for Iriends of mine, aud they could hot come.. I will send right down to engage your room The state ot the ..country ' ne be gan; but she interrupted, laughingly: 'ine country can exist lour weens without you, Mr. Freeman. Besides, you can make speeches nere, and you can excite our enthusiasm, and keep us making lint and bandages, and discour- J age extravagance indress, by paying the greatest attention to those ladies who wear chintz and eschew ruffles, and yon can as least try to get our home guard up to the pitch ot going on where their ser vices are needed. Besides, there's a telegraph line between you and the city, and six t rains ' a day,- if you should be wanted there. Only two hours' ride, if any call should come. Almost anythin can wait two hours." When a man is willing 'to be per suaded, una a woman rs desirous to per suade him, there can be little doubt as to the result. Mr. freeman concluded to remain in Yorkeville a few weeks, and rest from cares of state. Then, having received congratulations on his resolu tion, and made in ten minutes at least a score of engagements, he started to call on Miss Chase.- - Perhaps the charming cordiality of the Jepsons had made him feel more gently disposed towards the whole hu man species ; or it may oe that tne wine, white, summer moonngntaud tne dewy, fragrant air softened his heart; for whatever reason; he felt very kind and pitiful towards Miss Isabel Chase as lie went up tne avenue towards tne great house to see her. " Possibly he pitied her a little because he fancied that, while she might take his vtsit as a proot of re- gard. he really cared little to sec her, ttll(i would not have come but that he must. He paused at the lower gate, and, leaning on it. looked up to the house. W hatevcr signs oi decay tne nay migiit show there, the moonlight covered with a mantle of beauty. The emerald slope of the lawn was a silver wash of dew, glimmering as though a pale, sot t fire crept over the grass. - The trees stood in their carpets oi suauow, . anu nusnca themselves as if conscious of the sleep ing birds within their rich, dusky bo soms. The trailing vines that hung from trellis to trellis swung slumbrously, as though rocking some gentle breather in their verdant hammocks. It was ail en chanted domain; but where was the queen who should ' have been there to flit down silently through the shade and the sheen, and look up into his face with her vWrt, wistful eyes, and pnt In his herZslender, chilly hand, with a look and touch which should reward him for the pain of many a vain longing? Had he done well in being so easily daunted? Might he not better have laid his heart at tier feet in the tirst,' not hoping to see her take t qp then, but leaving it there that she might never forget It, that, ii) the end, since she could not step save on that, she should lift it and make it her own? Why had he allowed her to go thinking it possible that he could ever love any other? It were a manlier way, surely, not to wait till he should be ac cented tydQte he offered. MShe was only rebuking my pride and presumption," he thought. t'Jt was not a real coldness, bm self-control. - When her heart spoKe, it was quite otherwise I will remember only what was involun tary. That last mute farewell after the coldly spoken word. - Can I forget It?" He started from his reverie, remem bering where he was, and why he was there, as he saw a woman gliding swift ly beneath the trees not far away. At first he thought that she was coming to wards him ; but she changed her inten tion and returned towards the house, not by the garden avenue, but taking a path that led among shrubberies to the river wing. "It must be Isabel " bethought; "and she is all alone." He went slowly up the walk, glancing about to see if Miss Chase would appear to him there. By some inconsistency of the human heart which we cannot ex plain, and which often impels us to do in one hour what the hour before we were sure we never should be willing to do, Mr. Freeman hoped that he might find her, and would far rather have taken a moonlight stroll with her alone than make the ceremonious call he came to make. As he drew near the house, he heard a low-voiced, fitful singing, that seemed to come from a little veranda on the river side. He knew Belle Chase's voice, and her pretty way of humming In that fitful way, and occasionally let ting out a line of a song. Now as he drew nearer, lured and led by the thread of melody which had nuiig its frail lasso to entangle his steps, be caught the words: "Where the bee suck9, there lurk I. In the cowslip's bell 1 lie, " an elfish little melody, breaking out au dibly thus, then fading to a hum; and with the hum he heard a light toot-fall as the singer paced the veranda. hie smiled involuntarily. Had the song been a sentimental one, he might have shrunk a little; but she seemed in a meiry mood, which he need not fear. Is it Ariel, Puck, or Titania?" he asked, meeting lier at the end of the veranda, parting the vines to look. Mie started as though surprised, then laughed lightly and came towards him, stepping out of the shadow into the moonlight, that seemed to sparkle when it touched her. If she had been the per son he saw on the lawn, she must have dropped her dun-colored mantle, for she was dressed in white now. "I am glad you are come, for I was getting bewitched," shesaid, just touch- ng his hand with her slight, firm finger tips. "The moonlight and the place go to my brain. Did you know that every nook and cranny of these grounds and of the house is haunted ? The ghosts of all those old opium-eating Yorkes still cling here. You can see them some times in the shape of mists, or smokes. The ghosts of all those old opium eating Yorkes still cling here. You can see them sometimes in the shape of mists, or smokes. The house is steeped through with their fancies. Nobody is the same after staving awhile. I feel an unaccountable longing for hasheesh." "L think you must have imbibed it al ready," lie said, when her swift, airy speech ceasing gave him a chance to speak. " You look bewitched. Confess now that you are under tne innueiice oi the drug." She only laugned anu moved a little back, seeming to float, so light and grace ful was her motion. He followed her, wondered at and captivated by her strange mood, yet half vexed with it. He had never seen her so spirituelle, or with such a luring chilliness about her. Usually It had been his role to withdraw hers and to follow. She drew back towards the upper end of the veranda, where a short space was fenced off by vines that had caught along across the roof from the last pillar but one, and grown and woven so that, to reach that further nook of the veran da, one must step off the platform, or tear the green curtain ot leat ana ten dril. You can go Into the house if you want to," shesaid, stopping at this bar rier; "but you will see no one. Mr. Aylier is in some sort ot maze or other, cogitating upon a sermon, I suppose. When he Is preparing a sermon, he is demented. He walks his room; laughs and talks to invisible personages, bangs doors in people's laces, and lorgets to come to dinner. At such times he drinks green tea in Johnsonian quantities. He is mt nat state now; out you can oeani him in his den, if you like. I haven't approached him since this morning, when he broke my nose oy pusning nis door against it, then stood looking smil ingly after me, without ottering the slightest apology. Mr. and Mrs. Park hurst are in their own room, she writ ing, he reading Old Mortality for the nine-liundred-and-ninety-ninth time. I dare say that you would find them half asleep, and tney would wisn tnat you had let them remain so; but you can try Mrs. Merton is coloring her hair and eyebrows for to-morrow, and, though there should be an earthquake, sne would not come forth. There is left but Martha, who, like her namesake, is care ful and troubled about many things, But I have no doubt that she would gladly put aside her pots and pans to have a i.liat with yon." Mr. Freeman reddened visibly in the moonlight at this hit at his morning con versation with the housekeeper. "Let us go and find her," the lady said, stepping on the veranda. Stay:" ne exclaimed, vexed, yet amused. "I want to see no one but you. Sit here and talk to me, or let me look at vou in silence." liven while ne spone, tne gentleman hated himselt for the love-like tone he assumed; but his self-hatred was not deep enough for a sincere contrition She was beaimlul and piquant; he was lonely, and longing tor another woman whom he could not have now, nor for many a weary month, aud he wanted the solace ot her presence, One suffer ing greatly lrorn thirst win drinK even impure water; and this man, his long ing for the one deep love of his heart denied, was fain to amuse himself with a flirtation. The only excuse I have tor him is that it is his ttrst transgression. An oaken bench stood against the house-wall at this end of the veranda. and on that he seated his companion taking his own place on the veranda step in front of her, and looking up into her lace witn admiring eyes, iiau sne shown confusion or any consciousness he would have chilled ; but she seemed so entirely aware that it was only a pre tence ponr passer le temps, tnat ne was Quite thrown on his guard. lie was piqued by her unusual Insensibility, and lost sight ot his prudence in the desire to see those cold, bright eyes droop once, and that pale cheek sun use. But the more he talked sentiment, the more lightly she tossed aside the tremb ling point ot the sou-leathered arrow, and the more delieiously provocattve she became.

I was boy in a Iiancaster printing office when the Jackson party swallow ed the old Federalists, and when the Democracy took a fresh start under the banner ef . Old Hickory. There had been no trenchant Democratic organiza tion till that day, when the Iron Presi dent rallied and crystalized it. In 1824 every aspirant for President was a Democrat Clay, J. Q. Adams, Craw ford, Calhoou, and, of course, Jackson ; but there was no vigorous antagonism till the Whigs rose out of Mr. Clay's aspirations, and diexl with their decline. James Buchanan was an early Federal ist and sat in the 1'ennsylvauia legisla ture from Lancaster as a Federalist, and afterward in Congress as a representa tive of the same party; and when he joined the Democrats, under the Jack son standard,- about 1820-30, . he had to endure many bitter sneers from his old associates. They charged him with having gone over for a selfish purpose. They alleged that he ought to have been, in the logic of events, a good Whig; but he pointed to the fact that the Jackson party contained thousands of Federal ists as active as himself, and - that many of the Whig leaders were once Demo crats like Clay. This was the Democ racy iorty years ago. it has passed through many changes since and sur vived many storms. It killed the Whigs in 1844, the Native Americans in 1843, the Tay lorites i n 1 849-50, the Webster ites in 1852, and the Know-Xothings in 1854. At last, however, it undertook a bigger job than itself. It entered into partnership witn the rebellion, was bankrupted by the Investment, and finally died in the arms of its ablest ene my, Horace Greeley. So history re peats as it runs ! Old Hickory made the modern Democracy, and Horace Gree ley unmakes it ! - The one presides at its marriage with the Federalists in 1828-30, the other followed it to its grave in 1872. The real Democracy of our times is the Republican party, of which President Grant is the'leader; but from this hour, whatever : may. be the issue ot next .No vember's contest, there will be as ear nest a rivalry to prove which is the bet ter Republican as, torty years ago .there was to prove which was the better- De mocrat. Most of the politicans in those early days were anxious to show their devotion to the - Democracy, and now John C. Breckinridge, Horatio Seymour Wi "W. Corcoran, Charles R, Buckalew, and even Jefferson Davis, are anxious to show their devotion to the Republicans. Thns we gather a great lesson over a grave. Under Jackson the old Federal ists were buried in a Democratic sepul chre. Under Grant the Democrats are buried in a Republican one. And now that the Republicans have fairly absorbed the Democrats, how long will the new departure last? CrRIOIiS THINGS ABO ITT THE PAPACY. BY DR. R. SHELTON MACKENZIE, If Louis Napoleon had remained on the throne of France there might have been, some chance of one of the family being elected Pope on the death of Piu3 IX. On the 22d of June, 18G8, Lucian Bonaparte, born in Rome on November 15, 1828, was created Cardinal, and is now in his forty-fourth year. He rep- esents two brothers, Joseph and Lucian of Napoleon 1. His father, eldest son of Lucian Bonaparte married a daughter of Jerome Bonaparte, and the Cardinal, to use the expressive, it familiar words of the elder Mr. Weller,"was theconsekens of that mannuver." Very probably it was gratitude as well as policy that in duced Pins IX to make Charles Bona parte a Prince of the Church, and eligi ble for the Popedom. For twenty years Napoleon III had supported and protec ted the Pope. . He had prevented the Holy Pontiff from being reduced to the degree of mere Bishop of Rome, and it may be doubted, had he continued on the throne of France, whether the Pope would uow be the mere occupant, on tolerauce, of the small district of Rome, designated "the Lorane city." In a short time, now being over oo years of age, Pius IX, must share the common lot of humanity. It is well known that his prevailing desire is that the Papacy may be continued, in its for mer power with its old prestige, after he had passed away. He may have thought not anticpatlng the lan oi tne empire, that it was wise to give Lucian Bonapart, an Italian Prince, yet cousin of. Napo leon III, a chance ot being elected to St. Peters chair. Then arises the question. what, had Napoleon not been disposed. would have been the chances of Cardi nal Bonaparte's election. One objection, which years will di minish and may finally remove, is bis immature age. We do not recollect any instance ot any one only lorty-tour years old,- being elected ; .rope, as a general rule, only a Cardinal well ad vanced in years is so nonorea. oince the year 1700 thirteeti Popes have been elected. At the time of his election Cle nient XI was 51 ; Innocent XIII was 69; Benedict XIII was 81; Clement XII was 88; Benedict XIV was 83; Clement XIII was 76; Clement XIV was 69; Pius VI was 58: Pius XII was 58; Leo XII was 63; Plus VIII was 68; Gregory XVI was OQ ; and fins IX was o9. Thus, out of the twelve" Popes elected from 1700 to 1846 three were then older then 80; one above 75; five between 63 and 69; and three between 51 and 09. If Cardinal Bonaparrte ever is to be Pope, he must wait until he reaches some maturity of vears. Mention has already been made of the veto claimed, and often exercised, at the election or Pope, on tne part ot t rance, Australia, and Spain. Each of these powers had long been allowed to put its hand down as regards one cardinal dur ing each Fapal election, in the year 1069 Pope Nicholas issued a bin counn- ing the elective franchise to the college of Cardinals, leaving to the clergy aud people or Koine, wno had previously shared that rlgh. t with t"en, tlie barren office of accepting the election, when duly declared at the time the right of ex- - .1. ..... r. ....... ..1 .n 4-1-.A T-A . eruiMiiig i-iie rtru wi. icwi vc-u i-w mc -iur perer of Germany. There have been some slinru maneuvers, now and then, to baffle the vein ot tne three great catnoiic powers. One often used in the Conclave was to nut forwaril sham candidates, so as to draw out and dlsivoso of the veto whieh can be given only once during an election. In March. 1829. nus vi was elected, because Austria had veloed Cardinal Severoll. In lccember, 1830, at another election Cardinal Guistenlanl was on the point of being chosen, when a from the Court of Snaln nut him aside, and the Cardinal Cappellarl, who took the nanje of Gregory XVI, was elected. On his death in June, 181(1, the elect ion was soon over ; one account says, In 48 hours; another In lour days. It Is stated, in Cartwright's recent work on "Constitution of Papal Conclaves," that It was only from the fact of lW 0t hav ing arrived untl the election was oyer, that an Austrian Cardinal did not veto the election of CardioaL MassajrT-the present.Pope--who took the IX. ' On the : wholes it Is the name of -Plo yerymuch to be doubted whether, even had. the Bonaparte dynasty continued in Faance, any cardinal or tuat lauuiy wouia nave been elected. Napoleon III might have managed to secure the non-exercise of the veto by Austria or Spain, but he could scarcely have secured the forbear ance of both of these great powers. A Bonaparte in St, Peter's chair would be a very incongruous neau oi tne cnurcn. It is a general, but erroneous, infer ence that no Pope assumes the name un der which his Immediate predecessor reigned. There have been many excep tions. In the year 60s tsonltace IV suc ceeded Benedict III; in 706, John VII succeeded the sixth of that name ; in 983- 86, there were three ' ropes named John ; in 1873, there also were two Johns ; in succession ; Pius v succeeued fius IV in 15C6 ; one . Clement came after another, in 1067; again in 1769, and 1 as lately as the year isuo, one nus took the tiara and name ot another, mi Know about the change of name, after the elec tion, is that Pope John XII, elected in 956, is set down as"the first who changed his name on his elevation." ! nere nave been sixteen Pones bearing the name of Gregory ,and twenty-three Johns.

The baby yells and chokes, the young mother, afraid of killing it, lets go ot its nose, the infant catching breath, discharges the whole dose upon her, and ruins all the front breadths of her black silk, and follows up its advantage by so heart-breaking a yell that the attacking party surrenders at discretion and calls it "poor, injured mamsie's own toosens, and it won't take any more nassy castor oil, If It don't want to." A treaty of peace is then ratified, whereby the infant is cedel mmunity from castor oil, and an ample ndemntty to . lollipops, and then the mother enters into a war with the in fant's grandmother, who vigorously rep rehends the weakness exhibited In deal ing with children nowadays, 1 People have tried au sorts ot expedients.

There came to the-metropolis of New England, from Penobscot Maine, a young orphan girl, who, after striving in vain to. maintain herself comfortably at home by school teaching, had decided to essay the for tunes of a factory girl in a larger city. Entering th& hoopskirt manufactory of a : private nrm in isoston, she devoted all her energies to a mastery of the busi nes3.. and her confinement to . mere drudgery might not long be protracted, aud this to such effect that in a year's time she was promoted to the position of saleswoman, in two years more her superior capacity and practical tact made her the chief saleswoman of, the estab lishment, and through this last position she was brought to the acquaintance cf a certain rich California merchant buying goods for his -store in San Francisco. Hie acquaintance matured into a mutual regard of a graver nature. The girl, well as she was doing, had a woman's natural yearni ng for , woman's domestic kingdom, : and when the Calitornian closed his business account for the time by asking the saleswoman to go back with him to San Francisco, as his wife, she yielded a graceful assent.

THE TEXAS PACIFIC RAILROAD, This contemplated railroad, begins at Marshall.: Texas, about three hundred miles west of New Orleans, and runs through Texas,. New. Mexico, and Ari zona, on the line of the thirty-second parallel, terminating at San. Diego, in California. It has a land grant of 13, 500,000 acres; - This road has also a large moneyed subsidy from the State of Tex- wnen it shall be completed to. the western line of that States . This road running about 200 miles south of .the Atlantic and Pacific jroad, may, by south ern branches, be extended to the city of Mexico; the Mexican branch would be about 800 miles in . length, and when completed, San Diego would be brought into direct contact with the trade of the two rich States of Sinaloa and Souora. This road is authorized to connect at the Colorado, -near: Fort Yuma, with the Southern Pacific Railroad, thus bring ing the Southern and Mexican trade di rect to San Francisco over the Southern Pacific load.: The Southern Pacific is now being pushed .rapidly through the valley of the San Joaquin, is. already completed to Visalia, and by September will be at Jiakerstteld, In Kern county. This point is about 250 miles from the proposed point or, junction , with the Texas Pacific road,:. The Texas Pacific road is authorized by Congress to mort gage its' lands, and it has already issued construction bonds upon the security of the lands. -.. The company have commenced work on the eastern, end, and are compelled by their charter to build 100 miles each year, and upon the western end to con struct twenty-five miles per annum after this year. The general line of the road Is along the thirty-second parallel. This company is . under the management of Thomas A. Scott, of the Pennsylvania Central, one ot the railroad magnates, and he promises to push the matter with the utmost expedition. For . 450 miles through Texas the lands are prolific, aud will be ot great value as soon as t hoy- are accommodated by the road. It Is safe to predict that this road will be fin ished in three or four years from this date. '.''"' ... A LOST ART CLASS CLOTH. More than thirty years ago, Mr. Bon- nel of Lille, France, discovered a method of weaving cloth out ' of spun glass threads, which Was described as perfect ly flexible, and " applicable to a variety of purposes, more especially the orna mentation of the walls of apartments. This fabric, the making of which seems to be at present a lost art, was described in the papers of 1837 as follows. This cloth of glass Is extremely beautiful ;and from tne manner in wmcn it reflects the light, it surpasses in brilliancy every thing that has ever been attempted with silk, even when combined with gold or silver. Some specimens of this new man ufacture have been exhibited in the Passage de I'Qpeva In Paris i and the Queen of the French was so much pleas ed with them that she ordered a golden medal to be sent to tne inventor. - The following passage is extracted from - a French paper : .When we picture to our selves an apartment decorated With cloth of glass and resplendent with lights, we must oe convweeq tnat it win equal in brilliancy all that U possible for t he im agination to coneeive: it will realize In a word, tne wonders or tne enchanted pal aces of the Arabian tales.
