Down by the river's bank I strayed, U pon an autumn day ; Beside the failiug forest there I saw a child at play. She played among the yellow leaves The leaves that ouce were green And Hung upon the passing stream What once had blooming been ; Oh I deeply did it touch my heart To see that child at play ; It was the sweet unconscious sport Of childhood with decay. Fair child ! if by this stream yon stray, When after years go by. The scene that makes thy childhood's sport May wake thy age's sigh : When fast you see around yon fall The summer's leafy pride. And mark the river hurrying on Its ne'er returning tide. Then yon may feel in pensive mood That life's a summer dream : ' And man at last forgotten fulls A leaf upon the stream. INDOLENCE. Indolent ! indolent '.yes, I am indolent ; So is the grass growing tenderly, slowly ; So is the violet fragrant and lowiy, Drinkinir in miietness. peace and content ; So is the bird on the light branches swinging, Idlv, his carol of gratitude singing, Only'on liviug and loving intend. Indolent ! indolent ! yes, I am indolent ; so is the cloud overhanging the mountain ; So is the tremulous wave of a fountain, Vttering softly its eloquent psalm : Nerve and sensation in quiet reposing, Silent as blossoms the night dew is closing, Hut the full heart beating strongly and calm. Indolent ; indolent ! yes, I nm indolent, ir it be idle to gather my pleasure Out of creation's uncoveted treasure. Midnight and morning, by forest and sea Wild with the tempest's sublime exultations, Ixmelv in autumu's forlorn lamentation, Hopeful and happy with spring and the bee. Indolent ! indolent ! art thou not indolent. Thou who art living unloving and lonely. Wrapped in a pall that will cover thee only,, Shrouded in seltlshness, piteous ghost ? Sad eyes behold thee, and angels are weeping O'er thy forsaken and desolate sleeping ; Art thon not indolent i Art thou not lost ? 1R THE EVGNINC. All day the wind had howled among the leas, All day the wind had swept across the plain, All day on rustling grass, aud waving trees, H ad fallen " the useful trouble of the rain," All dav beneath the low-hung dreary sky, The dripping earth had cowered sullenly. . At last the wind had sobbed itselt to rest, At last the wearv calmness sank the storm. A crimson line gleamed sudden jn the west, Where golden necks rose wavering into form. A hushed revival heralded the night, And with the evening-time awoke the light. i The rose color flushed the long gray wave ; The rose color tinged the mountain brown ; And where the old church watched the village graves, Wooed to a passing blush the yew tree's frown. Bird, beast and flower relenting nature knew. And one pale star rose shimmering in the blue. So, to a long life crushed in a heavy grief, So, to a path long darkened by despair. The slow, sad hours bring tonches of relief. Whispers of hope, and strength of trustful praver. "Tarry his leisure." God of love and might, And with the evening-time there will he light ! The Lady of Linden-wold. A STORY IN FOUR PARTS. BY MRS. K. B. EDSON. CHAPTER I. T ..:.: .1. C-anmoktn l?, 1. 1, .1 (1 jUSi. was signalled at Patrldge Island) and immediately the loval au thorities of St. John ordered a salute of fifiy guns, to welcome the mes senger from the mother country. It was answered by the steamer, as she came into the river, and immediately, from all parts of the city, a heterogeneous crowd came pouring on to the wharf. A St. John crowd is a study in itself especi ally a wharf crowd. It runs the whole gamut of the social scale, from officers of the crown to the dirtiest and frowsiest of newsboys; and I venture to assert, that in no part of the civilized globe can there be found a dirtier, raggeder, noi sier or more impertinent set of juveniles than swarms in every street and by-way of that otherwise pleasant city. The Bermuda steamed leisurely up the harbor, her promenade decks crowded with eager passengers, most of whom saw, for the lirst tune, the line harbor and beautiful twin city. On shore, old men stood with uncovered heads, look ins wistfully, with dim and bleared eyes, to the ship, whose happy lot it had utc:ii w lie; uu uic wiuicinua ti v England, and whose presence seemed to bring to them again the scent and bloom of their native heather. In the denser crowd, there were anxious merchants, iu expectation of consignments; gentle manly loafers, called, in consideration if their irreproachable broadcloth and line linen, gentlemen of leisure; this, in distinction to the common loafers, who gloried iu red shirts, flashy vests, and wowsers, tucked into their boots, and coats out at the elbows, with terribly frayed culls and greasy collars, aud who stared at you with exquisite imperti nence, and whose breath if you were so unfortunate as to take it, bore the de lectable aroma of onions, codftsh, cheap .whisky and cheaper cigars, all combined in one delightful whole. Then there was an ideliuite number of the afore mentioned juvenile tatterdemalions, thrown in, like a handful of small change, and a liberal sprinkling of dogs, of all shapes and sizes, from those abom inable little rat terriers to the most mag niflcant of .Newfoundlands. Here and there a lawyer's clerk, with his hair parted iu the middle, and combed behind his ears, giving him a charmingly hon est and sanctimonious look, laid in wait for unwary flies. Brisk officials elbowed their way about, and all was bustle and confusion as the Bemuda was made fast to the wharf, and the passengers were making hurried preparations to come on shore. Some few had friends who had sent for them, and came joyfully on board to greet them, while a few others returned to the home of their adoption after rev.- erent pilgrimage to their fatherland. But the majority was made up of offi cials, merchants and soldiers; the scar let coats of the latter giving brightness and oictnresqueiiess to the scene. Standing haughtily apart from the crowd, and waiting till it had compara tively subsided watching it with a cool, indifferent air, that belied the excite ment that flashed in the great black eyes a lady leaned against the railway, and took in, with one swift, comprehensive glance, bay and city, and distant wood crowned hills, lifting their emerald cones to heaven. A look of satisfaction settled on ber face a very beautiful face, too, with its luxuriant bands of purple-black hair, its marvelous black eyes, that could dream or flash, dazzle or bewilder, as their fair owner willed. She had one of those clear, creamy coin pelxlons that- have rarely a tint of col oring; but nature had made an excep tion in her favor, and an exquisite dash of crimson matched cheek and lip. She came slowly down the plank, ap- parently unconscious of half a score of uacKinen, who were crying, -union, "Waverly," "Aristook," '-Jlave a hack mum f" in the moat beseeching and pa thetic of tones. Having gained the wharf, and a comfortable standing-place a little apart, she beckoned to one of the hackmen, and said, in a low, even voice, which betrayed no hint of the suppress ed excltemont that sent the blood in such a mad gallop through her veins : "You will take me to Lindenwold if you please., ."Here. are. my checks. I will wait here while you get my trunks; there are two of them. V ... "Yes, my lady. ' " But hadn't your ladyship better get in the carriage "f" said the obsequious Jehu, lifting his hat. "Xo, I preter waiting here. Is it far?" ' "Just at the head of the wharf. If your ladyship will follow me a moment. I" "Pshaw ! How very stupid !" she muttered, under her breath, yet secretly pleased at the servile air of the driver, and the readiness with which he accor ded her the title of ladyship. If only others were as ready to admit her claim ! and with a secret determination that they should, she added, aloud: "Did I not say I would wait here ? Is it far to Lindenwold ?" "Oh. I bez vour ladyship s pardon !" cried the perturbed driver, nervously I lingering Ills nab-Danu, anu casting a i con tern Dt nous glance u p o a Timmy Brvne. who had lust driven away mm i - . - . . i , two pretty, fair-haired English girls, who had asked to be set down at theinite grace and dignity ot her every 1 cheanest resectable Inn in the city. Poor 1 young tningSI nmmy rryn hiu?u i them from the depths of his warm Irish heart, though he did not know that they had expended their last pound in pas- saare-monev. because they could not en- dure the familiar place after all the dear, familiar faces had faded from their I vearniner sisrht. although lie intuitively guessed something of It from the simple 1 mourning they wore. And so he waited on them as cavalierly, ana witn a t great deal more heartfelt pleasure, than if thev had asked for Lindenwold, or even the governor of the province. John English was welcome to ins "uiuy, i Who Stood ttlsrre Wlttl ner BKirts unwu carefully back from contact with com mon people. In the meantime. Jehu hud so far re covered his senses as to inform the lady that It was "a trifle better nor a mile outside the city." The trunks once se curely strapped behind, and the lady as securely buttoned inside, -rticnaru was himself again," and I doubt if there was l hannier or prouder fellow in the colo- nlesthan jonn n.ngusu, as ne drove up Prince William street, and out by King Square, and turned his horses' heads iu the direction of Lindenwold. CHAPTER II. The slant ravs of a June sun burnish ed the windows and quaint gables of Lindenwold, and, falling through the tangled thicket of sweet-briar and wood bine, lay nice a loia 01 amoer sauu across the stiff, hiarh-backed chairs, and the curiously-carved escritoire, its silver knobs wrapped caret uny in laaeu green baize. There was a fresh, sweet smell in the house, and a huge pile of feather-beds, mattresses, comforters, coats, cloaks and dresses of the queerest and most anti quated fashion all lying in one pro miscuous heap, revealed the fact that it had been one of Mrs. Wallace's grand "airing days." For, though the "great house," as it was called, In distinction from the humbler cottage of the Walla ces, was, and had been for five years un tenanted, still Mrs. Wallace had set times and seasons iu which she religous lv sweet and garnished and aired every thing in and about the house. The piles of daintv linen were spread ou the lawn to bleach,, and then duly folded awav acraln. with lavender and rose- leaves, to await another resurrection For it was a very prominent article in Mrs. Wallace's creed, that some day an heir would come to Lindenwold, and claim his owu. And so she kept her lamps trimmed and burning, though terribly ridiculed by her husband, for what he called her "whimsies." . More than forty years before, Sir Thomas Livingston.came to New Bruns wick, with his two motherless boys, Frederick and -Clarence. His tenderly loved wife had fallen a victim to a ma lignant fever, and her sudden death so completely proscratea ana unnervea him, that his physician insisted upon an immediate chanse of scene and climate. Having some warm personal mentis among the officers of the crown in the provinces, he at length decided to make the vovase. and, if pleased with the country, to make it his permanent resi dence. That he had been thus pleased, the beautiful and picturesque villa of Lindenwold bore witness, whicli was named in remembrance of his mother, whose maiden name it was. Sir Thomas had never married again, but had sent at once to England for Mary Irvin who had been the devoted and faithful nurse ofhis boys from their infancy and she, witn ner husband and Infant daughter,. arrived in St. John iu a little less thau two years from the ar rival of Sir Thomas. She was at once installed as chief housekeeper, and though Sir Thomas was very exclusive aud aristocratic, aud drew the lines be tween man aud master with punctilious I strictness, yet it was talked openly among the servants, that alary irvin was treated more like a favored friend thau a servant, aud the little Mary now Mrs. Wallace grew up almost as a child of the house. And through all the sad changes, and even through the long vears of desola tion, her heart had been true to its first love dear old Lindenwold. And though thoroughly devoted to her husband, and nearly idolizing her little sixteen year old Annie, to say nothing of the wor shipful pride with which she regarded her foster son, Arthur St. Orme, yet there was no secret chamber in her heart where no other love ever entered ; where, shrined like some caleudared saint, dwelt the loves and memories, the fortunes and interests of all that per tained to Lindenwold. She did not ex pect her husband or Arthur to share tier feelings; but she had conscientious ly instilled her seutiments into the mind of Annie, and with such success that Lindenwold seemed to her imaginative fancy a sort of Mecca a sacred shrine, to be reverently kept and guarded. All day long Annie's happy voice had rung through the silent house, and now, sobered and saddened for it always gave her a strange feeling of sadness and regret to leave Lindenwold she stood folding away the quaint brocade dresses, the dainty workmanship of the fair fingers of the beautiful Lady Alice, whose portruit bung beside her bus hand's Sir Frederick's, in the lonsdraw ing-room. It was a very lovely face, with soft, fair curls shading the snowy forehead. Annie loved to dream over the picture, and recall every little inci dent connected with its lovely original which she could remember, or which her mother had told her. "Don't stop to dream, child ; it's nigh supper-time, aud I am tired most to death. I do hope Arthur will come over in time enough to take these beds up stairs," exclaimed Mrs. Wallace, stopping a moment to wipe the perspir ation irom tier round ruddy lace. - "Oh, mother!" suddenly exclaimed Annie, holding aside the long, heavy tendrils of fragrant honeysuckle that swept the window, "there has some body come to Lindestwold. A lady, and alone. Oh, mother, mother, what can it mean? Yes, the hackman is coming round the north wing. Lo go to the door, mother, quick !" Nearly as perturbed and excited as her daughter, Mrs. Wallace hastilv laid aside her long check apron, unrolled her sleeves with a swift, dexterous move ment, and smoothing down her hair as she went, met the hackman on the step. JSvenin , Mrs. Wallace, ' he said brusquely, with a ludicrous assumption of importance. "A lady for Linden wold Miss Olive Livingston just arri ved in her majesty's steamship, Bermu da. Shall 1 bring her 'round here, or up to the main entrance?" "Uearroe! 1 don t know, 1 m sure," cried the flustered woman. "It'll never do to bring her round here, for it's air ing day, and everything is in heaps ; but the key is rusted In the lock of the hall door, and I couldn't turn it to save my soul." Perhaps her ladyship had better re turn to England," he suggested sarcas tically. "Oh dear, no; but whatever shall 1 do?" cried the perplexed woman ; when, to her great relief, she espied Arthur sauntering leisurely up the drive. "He'll know just what to do, and how to do it; he altvays does. Nothing ever fiustrates him," she said, brightening. But to her unspeakable horror, she saw him go toward the carriage, and after a moment's parley, assist a lady to alight, and come with her directly toward the north wing. Annie still stood bv the window, one little hand holding nervously to the honeysuckles, crushing their fragrant petals in her unconscious absorption. The swift color came and went in her pure cheek and the violet eyes darkened w uasny purpie, as sue waicuen ja.rt.iiui and the unknown lady neariug the nuuse. aue took in at a giauce ine mar n, . - , . i yelous beauty ot the lady, and the lntl- movement. ii is me uetrcss ui juiuucuwuiu, sim: said, softly under her breath. "1 al ways knew she would come and she is so : beautiful !" And then a strange thought flitted through her brain; a thought that sent the blood back in chill, heavy waves to her heart. Uut she smiled hopefully an instant after, when she remembered their difference iu rank, but she could not help admitting that mey wuKea exceeutngiy weu-maieu Arthur looking every inch as noble as his companion. The clear, silvery tones of the lady aroused her from her absorp- nun, aim sue nau oniy time to suae nm luy to scat ueiore sue eniereu. The great black eyes took in the entire contents of the room at one single, swift glance; from the elaborately-carved wainscoting and heavv sideboard., to the stiff brocade dresses that Annie had unconsciously let fall in the middle of the floor. It was a striking group that the dull red light of the setting sun streamed in upon in the old di nine-room of Linden- wold. Mrs.Wallace, flushed and abashed, making vigorous efforts to shut two refractory feather beds into a closet, which suddenly swelled up and grew plethoric with indignation at the out rage; Annie shrinking like some shy wild rose into the depth of a faded green damask fauteuil; John English, waiting, hat in hand, to enquire "If her iadyship nau any further orders; Miss .Livings ton, cool, self-posessed and gracious; and Arthur St. Orme, superbly indiffer ent, yet with a look of quiet amusement hovering about his mouth, and soltening its accustomed gravity. The trunks were brought in, the hack- man paid and discharged, and then, as ?he stood by the long table drawing off her gloves, Miss JLivingston said, a little smile of quiet satisfaction lighting up her tace : "You wern't expecting me, Mrs. Wal lace t Well, yes that is, I was expecting some one would come sometime. I didn't exactly know it would be you." ut course not. Which is very rea sonable, considering you did not kuow until fifteen minntes ago that there was any such person.' flow should 1, miss," Mrs. W allace replied, a little nettled at the thought that she had been ridiculed, "when I never saw you here, or ever heard so much as your name alluded to by the family?" "lo be Bure. iou see poor papa was the younger son a great deal younger than Uncle Thomas and he and Uncle Thomas were not always on the best of terms. Sir Thomas had all the wealth, title and honors of the family, and papa had nothing. It bred hard feelings, very naturally." "xou are John iiivingston's daughter theu? I have heard my mother, who was nurse in Sir Thomas's family before he left England, speak of him and no good either," she added mentally. lou remember sir Thomas ot course?" "Oh yes ho hasr been dead but twen ty-five years. I was fifteen years old, and it was the first grief of my life. I loved him yery dearly, for I had grown up at Linderwold and he had been very kind tome." And Mrs. Wallace s voice trembled, as she turned away to the window. You must -tell me all about them sometime. I know so little about any of my relatives, and am utterly alone in the world, that to find any one who has known and loved them, seems like find ing a menu indeed. And the sweet voice grew tender and tremulous, and a soft light crept into the beautiful eves, veiling tneir Dru nancy in a minim ten derness- Mrs. Wallace was captivated at once by this little speech, and while she made copious excuses for the disorder in which she had lounu the place, managed to lead her through the broad hall, and up the long stairway, to a pretty, ele gant chamber, directly over the main entrance, and jutting out something iu the form ot a bay window, between the north and south wings. Here every thing was in exquisite order. The fur niture was modern, and the carpet was fresh, and the counterpane, whose heavy fringe swept the floor, was white as the daisies that blossomed in the garden be low. There was a fresh wreath of white roses and scarlet honeysuckle on the little toilet table, and round a small, oval frame, from which looked out a fair, girlish face, with loose, wavy curls, and the bluest ot bfue eyes. his was Lady Alice's room," Mrs. Wallace explained, "and that is her pic ture. It was here she came a happv bride, and from here her pure spirit went to be the bride ot Heaven." A slight shiver ran over Miss. Liv ingston, but the voice was very firm and even that asked, "And who, pray, was the Lady Alice.'" "Why, Sir Frederic's your cousin's wife, to be sure. It is but five vears since she died. Mie outlived all the rest, and she just grieved herself to death, like a child." "Thev are all dead ?" "Yes, all. It always seemed a pity that neither Sir Frederic nor Clarence should have had uny children to inherit such a tine property. But I am verv glad you have come, miss, for you are a Livingston. I knew that at the first glance. You have the Livingstou eyes and hair, aud your features, tnougii more feminine, are almost the exact counterpart of Sir Thomas's, as I re member him. But it seems a pity that the Livingston name should die out. If you had only been a boy, or bet ter still, had had a brother to share it with you, and perpetuate the name A strange, inexplicable expression crossed Olive Livingston's tace. Mrs Wallace thought it the bitterness of re gret perhaps it was ! "You will have to stop at the cottage until affairs can be arranged, I suppose?" "Yes, I suppose so. I shall have to see mv cousin's lawyer, or whoever has! charge of the property, and establish my claim, I suppose, before I can take pos session. 'I think likely. Arthur will tell vou what to do; he is an attorney himself. But you are too tired to talk any more, and I am going to take you down to the cottage at once, and alter a nice supper, and a good night's sleep, you will feel more like attending to business." CHAPTER III. Back and forth In the pale moonlight, with folded arms and bowed head, paced Arthur St. Orme. At his right rose in wild, irregular peaks a long range of fir crowned hills, with huge gray boulders seaming them like scars; at his left lay the sleeping city, its dimly-outlined spires gleaming like phantom fingers through the dim distances; while just beyond, flashing and glowing like mol ten silver, the beautiful river swept away to the bay. But Arthur St. Orme did not look once on this magnificent panorama, or if he did, it was with eyes that saw not; for he started nervously when a little hand was laid lightly on his arm, and a sweet, eager voice said, tremblingly: "Why don't you come In, Arthur? It's past eleven o'clock, and the dew is heavy and chill." "My precious little mentor." he said, tenderly, imprisoning the hand that res ted on his arm, and holding it in both of his, "isn't it eleven o'clock for you as well as me? And isn't the dew as damp and chill for velvet slippers and flimsy muslins " touching her light summer robe "as it is for calf-skin and cassi- mere?" "But, Arthur, I just this minute came out, and you have been here full two hours. "How do you know,little hour-glass ?" "I I have been looking out. I thought something troubled you Ar thur." - ' - "And so yon came out here through tiiis wet grass, for which I am going to punish you." And he caught her light ly in his arms, and bore ber up the long, sloping lawn to the cottage. "Xow go into the house, little one, or your eyes will he completely eclipsed to-morrow by their pretty sisters those wood yiolots I showed you yesterday." A look of an uoyance crossed her face ; something troubled him, and he wished to put her off, like a petted child, with sweet words. Suddenly a thought cross ed her mind like a swift pain. If she had been' older and more experienced, she might have folded the pain away iu silence ; as it was, she said, sharply : "Or by a more brilliant pair, with rarer settings." Aud wrenching her self from his grasp, she turned to go in. He caught her hand and drew her back. "You mean Miss Livingston, Annie? And you think that it is her bright eyes that are spoiling my sleep? Is that it, pet?" She did not answer; she only strug gled to get away. "Annie, can Vou not trust me?" he said, gravely. "And vet I freely admit that if Miss Olive Livingston had not come, I should have been asleep long ago." The little figure iu his arms struggled witli renewed energy to get away, but he held her fast. "Hear my explanations, Annie if ex planation so vague a feeling can oeeaiieu There is something about Miss Liv ingston that awakens some memory taint, and vague, and intangible as a dream, but still a memory. Sometime, a great while ago, I have seen a face like hers. She is very handsome, perhaps I think she is; but that is not what at tracts me. In her face there Is a sort of subtle fascination, which holds me like an enchanted spell: and the strangest of it is, it seems a thing totally distinct from the present, and even from her, personally. I don't know " -and lie stopped In sudden perplexity "I can't explain it, Annie, after all. But what ever it is, little one, don't you ever doubt or distrust me again. Ever since your father rescued me at the peril of his own life, when our vessel went to pieces ou those terrible Mulr Ledges, though I was but a boy of eight years and vou scarcely two, 1 have loved you with ali the warmpth and tenderness of an orphaned and lonely heart. Do yon think the fair face of this haughty Eng-lisii-womau can make mc forget, in a sin gle night, the love whose sweet growth has brightened all these happy years? Don't ever let such fancies into your head again. And now, by way of pen alty, you are to kiss me twice ou the lips, and theu go immediately to bed." There was a little struggle, a little low, sweet laughter, aud the penalty was paid; and two little slippered feet flew lightly up the stairs, and smiling and blushing, and very happy, she crept noiselessly to ner coucn. There was great excitement when it became known that an heiress had come to Lindinwold. It infected .all classes of society for Lindenwold was a large property, and its owner necessarily a person of consequence. This would have been the case if it had been the veriest, boor in the kingdom; hut when it was taken into account that it was a voting and lovely woman a very queen ot beauty and elegance, no wonder that admiration and enthusiasm ran wild. Newsboys stood at the street corners when her carriage rolled by, and stared with mouths agape, and for once forgot to cry their wares. John English was a lion among his brother whips; forbad he not had the honor of first conveying the heiress to Lindenwold t and when one dav. in passing, she recognized him by a gracious inclination ot ner stately head, his delight knew no bounds. I doubt if he could have held one six teenth part of a grain more of happiness and lived. Even Timmy Bryne felt a ht twinge of envy, and was only consoled by the thought that his young idies came in the steamship, anil in that way reflected, indirectly a little ot the great glory ou himself. Rectors and pastors 01 the various cnurcnes detected themselves thinking of Miss Livingston when they wrote some of their most brilliant passages, and wondered if she would approve, it ov the "dipensation ot irovidence"siie was leu to their partic ular lold. There was a great deal of fine writing and aesthetic expression winch owed its inspiration to Mrs. Livingston, but which was attributed to divine affla tus. And when at last the dte was cast bv Miss Livingston's taking a slip in St lame s, Rev. Paul W ayne Kussel pastor, there was a little flutter of indignation aud wounded pride in more than one clerical bosom; and some so far forgot their Christian character, as to assert that the fact that Mr. Russel was fine- looking and unmarried had unfluenced the lady's decision. But they were far from right; lor the Providence which they had each impor tuned in his own especial lavor, had much more to do with it than they sup posed. And once again limmy Bryne congratulated himself, for did not his young ladies Amy and Alice Clair go to St. James s likewise r There had been great changes at Lin denwold since Airs. Livingston came. The house and grounds had been thor oughly renovated and modernized. A great deaf of ancient and cumbersome furniture had been stored in the north gable, and Us place filled with modern and stylish articles. The garden, which was an overgrown, tangled thicket of roses and acacias, was thinned and trimmed, and new and rare plants intro duced, and the marble fountain, which had long fallen into disuse, restored to Us pristine beauty, and over the low verandas the luxuriant vines were care fully trained, until Lindenwold seemed to have found the wonderful elixir of perpetual youth. Miss Livingston had rare taste, and with the abundant means at her com mand, no wonder the old place grew in beauty and attractiveness'. ' If "she had thought to experience any difficulty in establishing her claims to the property she was pleasantly disappointed. Mr. Vanstone, who had been Sir Frederic's attorney, after the death of his father, and who had also conducted all business for tlie Lady Alice after she became a widow, was only too glad to find aujheir to the estate, to be at all captious or hard to convince. And so when Olive Livingston laid the family record for several generations before him, with her mother's marriage certificate, and took oath to the ueath. of both her parents, and to herself as being the sole, and only heir, he very readily accepted the proofs, and gave into her hands the accumula ted interests of bank-stock and rent-roll, and felt a pleasant sensation of relief that the property had at last got some body to take care ot it. A strange fatality seemed to have at tended all ids efforts to discover the heir. Twice he had written to England, aud each time the mail had been lost; once by the burning of the steamship, and once by robbery. He had advertised extensively in both countries ; it having been stated to him upon good authority that the heir of John Livingston had left Liverpool for America twenty-five years before. But if such a thing were true which he rather douoteu ne nau probably never reached this continent, as the most careful inquiry had failed to discover him. Bat the appearance of Olive Livingston had set everything right, and it was with a feeling of the most intense satisfaction that he deliver ed the little deeds to the fair claimant. TO BE COXT1XCED. ANECDOTES OF PUBLIC JIE.V. BY COL. J. W. FOKSf EY. XO. LXXIX. I have been enjoying, for the first time, William H. Seward's "Life of JOhn ouincy Adams," puoiisneu in 1840, and I pronounce it among the best biographies I ever read. It is the tri bute of one great man to another. I do not compare Mr. Steward to John Quin cy Adams, but if any writer in his forty-ninth year the "age when Sewaid wrote his life or Adams would now un dertake the same work for Seward he would produce a book of uncommon in terest. Mr. Adfms was over eighty when lie died in the Capitol of the coun try he had served so well. Mr. Seward is now in his seventy-second vear. and his experience, though not marked by the austere lines of that of Adams, is one of the eventful examples of our day. He "still lives" at Auburn. New York, in a body wrecked by accident and the assas- itiri'u r icmr! nut. nis inreiiecr sninos through the shattered casket like light through a ruined eastle. He w ill be fortunate It the historian or his varied and somewhat grotesque career a com bination as it was ot curious evolutions. daring experiments, and very great abil ities is as careful and thoughtful a de lineator of human nature as the biogra pher of John Quincy Adams. Hut 1 did not intend to compliment Mr. Seward, nor to draw a parallel be tween him and John Quincy Adams, lu nothing more striking than the fact that both are supposed to have kept a close and graphic detail or diary of their po litical and official relations. The vol ume before me, chiefly the product of his brain, has been so long forgotten, and contains so many new suggestions, at least to" the present generation, that a glance through its pages may be pleas ant and profitable to the readers oi these Anecdotes. The American progenitor of the Ad ams family was Henry Adams, who fled in 1869 from ecclesiastical oppression in Tno-lanil. and was a member of the flrst Christian church at Mount Wollaston, the present town of Quincy, Massachu- setts, and died on the 8tli of October, ltS4u. His memory is preserved oy a plain granite monument in the burial- ground of Ouincy, upon which Johu Adams, second .rresiaent oi tue u nueu States, caused the followiug inscription to be carved : In Memory OF HENRY ADAMS. Who took his flight from the dragon Per. sedition in Devonshire, in i.ngiana, and alighted with eight sons, near Mount Wollaston. One of the sons returned to England, and after taking time to exnlore the coun try, four removed to ' Medtield and the neigiiboring towns, two loaeimsioru. Due only Joseph, who lies nere at his left hand, remained here, who was an original propri etor in tbe township of Braintree. incorpo rated in tbe year 1639. This stone and several others have been placed in this vara, bv a ereat-Jtreat grandson, from a veneration of the piety, humility, simplicity, prudence, patience, temperance, irueauty, industry, ana per severance of his ancestors, in hope of re commending an imitation or tbeir virtues to posterity If we trace the descendants of Henry Adams we shall realize how faithfully the idea carved on the stony monument of their great ancestor have been cher ished. Three generations have attested their devotion to these valuable precepts I recollect no American family that can point to so many great minds, all form ed, as it were, upon one model. The sons of the living Charles t rancis Ad ams, himself the son of John Quincy, are far above the common standard. John Quincy Adams, Jr., being a polit ical leader ot acknowledged power, ano a writer of uncommon gifts. But none of the name, not even the second Presi dent, have made such a mart upon age as the successor of James Monroe. Mr. Seward shows how carefully John Quincy Adams was trained for the bat tle oi lite. At a period wnen our Amer ican youth are too apt to neglect their precious and surpassing opportunities, it niav be useful to recall the boyhood of that remarkable man. Born at Quin cy, May 11, 1ZU7, he was literally cra dled in the Revolution, and almost bap tized in its blood. His great grand la ther, Quincy, on his mother's side, was dying, and'his daugnter, grandmother of young John Quincy, was present at the birth ot the latter, and Insisted that he might receive the name of Qmncv And in one ot his letters tbe incident is thus referred to : "The fact, recorded bv my father at the time, has connected with portions ot mv name a cnarm or mingled sensibility and devotion. It was filial tenderness that gave the name, It was of one passing from earth to immortality. These have been among tlie strongest links of my attachment to the name of Quincy, irl Auoe been, through life, a perpetual admonition to do nothing unworthy of it." Fortified by the example of his ancestors ou both sides, and by the care of a cultivated tather and a careful mother, lie was so studious that Edward Everett, iu his eulogy, said: "There seemed to be in his life no such stage as that ot boy hood." When only nine years old he wrote as follows to his father : BKAlNTitKK, June 2, 17 Dkar Sir: I love to receive letters very woll, much better than 1 like to write mem. jiy ueau is nuicn too ucKie. my thoughts are running alter biruB' egB, piny and trifles, till I am vexed with myself.

' '" "' Here we see the beginning of that ex traordinary diary which was continued down to the period of his death in the Speaker's room of the House of Repre sentatives, on the 23d of February, 18fS. That great work has not yet seen the Jight. but is in process of preparation for publication by his son, Charles Fraucis Adams, and will be issued at an early day by the great house of J. B. Lippin- cott & Co., PhUadelphia. The value .of such a a diary is proved by Mr. Seward's biography. It is in most cases infalli ble, and whenever Mr. Adams allowed a reference to be made to its pages, the evidence was decisive. Accurate, and painstaking . in everything, living by rule, he stated a fact exactly as it occur red, and at the exact time, and from his authority there could be no appeal. Mr. Seward himself seems to have adopted John' Quincy Adams as his model, at least in his later years. His late travels round the world, his steady' refusal to intermix with passing politics, and his entire independence in the expression of his opinions, taken in connection with.' the general belief that he is usy, pre paring his own memoirs, show that, un like most retired statesmen, he is not in sensible to. the world's judgment,, arid that in Ids old age he is still keenly alive to the progress o'f his country. But he can leave no memento that will do him more credit than his "Life of John Quincy Adams," published in 1849. CASTE IX ESGLMD: Broadly, there are three sects of peo ple upper, middle and lower. Prac tically, there are many more'. There is royalty, nobility, and" upper and lower upper ; .in upper and lower, middle, and a variett" of gradations downward to ward the nethermost depths. .Every body ; washes his hands of everybody outside of his own set: ' The laborer is not admitted to the a'rtizan's circle; the artizah cannot enter ' the trades-people's coterie; the trades-people are not admit ted to the merchants' communion, and the merchant must, with all his wealth, learu to keep his place if he comes into the neighborhood of real'biood. . l ubiic schools are absolutely out of the question on account of this caste of feel ing. " What !, send your son .tp . school where . trades-people's and artisan's children are sure to go? Preposterous!

If she admits a shop-keeper's or chemUt's daughter, all the fine young misses are immediately withdrawn. " One, does not desire, you understand, to, see an.in timacy spring up between our young la dies and our tailor's daughter. We have no other objection to the school none whatever!" It is this rigid caste feeling, existing among" people otherwise yery sensible, that an American finds it so bard to .un derstand and so impossible to approve. Only yesterday, sitting .for an hour, in a dentist's chair, drew out his sentiments concerning caste. " Oh, you Ameri cans don't understand it, of course. You oyer there have been on an equal footing from the first, lou all started together. It is different here." For centuries there has been a gradual pro cess of natural selection going forward until now the upper anuiower England are. as unlike as two different breed of dogs. They have scarcely anything in common. ' The lower classes geuerally are utterly wanting in the "gentlemanly instincts." Now this is very fine theory with which' to defend this abominable class distinction ; but it is far more false thau it is flue. The " gentlemanly inr stincts" are quite as often, to say the least to me it seems more 0txcn-7t0.be noticed in the second-class railway car7 riage as in the first-class; oftener. among the serious-minded middle class folks than amid lavender gloves and fine silks, and the general selfishness of the upper classes generally. t , THE ELECTOBiL COLLEGE UNDER THE NEW APPORTION. , MENT. . .

The mark which persons who are una- Dle to write arc required to make in stead of their signatures, is iu the form ot a cross; and this practice, having Deen lormeriy loiioweu dv Kinirs nnd nobles, is constantly referred to as an instance of the deplorable ignorance of ancient times, fins signature is not. however, Invariably a proof of such ig norance. Anciently the use of the mark was not confined to Illiterate persons for among the Saxons the mark of the cross was an attestation of the trood faith ot persons signing, and was required to be attached to tlie signature of those who could write, as well as to stand tlie place rf the signature of those who could not write. In those times, if a man could write, or even read, his knowledge was considered proof pre sumptive that lie was in holy orders The clericus or clerk, was synonymous with penman; and the laity, or people who were not clerks, did not feel any urgent necessity ior ine use 01 letters The ancient use of the cross wns there fore universal, alike by those who could and could not write; It was, indeed, the syninoi or an oath, from its sacred asso- form of ejaculation approaching the character of tin oath.

We shall have more of thenrhere fhau is for our good. The Protestant Episcopal Bishops of ennessee and Texas are reported in the newspapers among the attendants on the services of the Greek Church last week ou the Emperor's " Name Day." It is announced that after next month's Old Catholic Congress at Cologne, the Archbishopric of Utrecht will go to Vi enna to confirm the children of Old Catholics' and probably install au Old Catholic bishop for Austria. ' A learned gentleman in Japan writes a letter to the Mikado, bewailing with teirs the progress of his country toward tha civilization of the West. The Mika do does not appear to be moved by the tears or arguments, but pushes on." A correspondent of the Cologne Ga zette, writing from Rustchuk, says that among the Bulgarians of the Lower Danube the discontent with the oppres sion which weighs upon the Christian population has been growing stronger for some weeks past. - - ' ' ' The Municipal Council of Dickirch, In Luxemburg, has, refused permission to the exiled Jesuits from Gerniany to settle in that town, exhorting at the same time the other towns of the grand duchy to follow the same course, as to permit the Jesuits to live there must in evitably involve them in trouble with Germany. The Rev. " Donald Macleod, 'who was recently appointed one of Her Majesty's chaplains for Scotland, is the editor of the Good Words, in succession to his brother, the late Dj. Norman Macleod. For some time back the Rev. Donald Macleod has been a frequent contributor to the popular periodical of which lie haa now become the editor. ' ' Once more- we have the report that President Thiers has been inforuied by M. Bourgoing that the Pope has aban doned all idea of . leaving Rome. : Next month we -shall hear that he thinks of going. . In ' December he will conclude to stay.- And soon. If his mind is so variable as to the simple question of residence, what is his infallibility worth ? Many people think that the Pope's; Council is done and gone. It is gone but not done,, only adjourned for a while, .The French Cardinals have re quested his Holiness to reconvoke the Council to some French city where he has no hostile influence to, fear, "but the Pope insists , upon closing the Council at the Vafieian, or leaving his successor to do so. . The first session resulted in his temporal power. We hope he will call j the second and lose the rest.: j The Royal ,' Gardens at Kew near Lon don j contain some interesting speci mens Which may ,,be regarded as Mis simia'ry Memorials." The late Rev. W. Ellis never lost his love of botany., The Gardens have many specimens which the country owes to him. "It was he in troduced the lace-plant into England. Carey, of Serampore, did a great deal in this line; and it is on account of the ser vice which he rendered in this way to the science of botany that his portrait is hung on the wall of the museum at Kew.. .. Cardinal Antonelli has received a communication from the Papal Nuncio at Vienna; who writes that at the Impe rial Conference just concluded at Berlin the Emperors of Austria, Russia and Gerniany agreed to forward the note to 1113 Holiness the rope, asking him to break with the Jesuits, as the latter are the , enemies of the Roman Catholic Church. The Pope knows better than that. The Jesuits are his best friends and the sheet anchor of his ship is no;v tossed wildly on the waves ot discord, division and fear. Kino AmXdkus and the Priests. The parish priests of Bilbao belore the King's visit and in order to create a prejudice against hiin had described this " son, of Antichrist ", to their fair penitents as a monster of ugliness. He is a great ugly devil," said they, " bad ly made ; one of his eyes looks towards Italy aud the other watches Castile, to see if it is burning; he has fallen shoul ders,, a sunken chest, twisted legs, and arms of simian length, ending in enor mous paws." These calumnies had greatly served the cause of the hand some Don Carlos, but the priests had overshot their mark. The King came. has been seen, and has conquered, and the ladies of Bilbao having decided that he is muy buen mozo y bastante guapito (a good-looKing young fellow enough), will, in future, uouDtiess, warmly sup port him, and accept the statements of their clerical advisers with some reserve. In Protestant Sweden popular educa tion is more highly estimated than in'this country. We see it stated that in S'we- den the lowest salary is "400 rix dollars ($iuu) lor the school term ot 8 months ; besides which the teacher is supplied with one apartment for lodgings, neces sary fuel and pasture (in winter hay) for a cow, . In. some towns the annual money salary ot a teacher amounts to from Jin gold uonars to 4UU gold dollars In 1867 there were in Sweden 2,117 fixed schools and 1,206 ambulatory, besides S.240 primary schools. Of the fixed schools, neany the wtioie numoer. or 2,016 possessed a piece of laud for the teachcr'sruse. - Teachers who have at tained the ago of sixty and have served thirty years, also such as are incurably sick, receive a pension equal to 70 per cent, of their salary - They also receive a pension, though ot less amount, at the age of fifty-five, if they have served twenty-five years." It. is with pleasure that wo record. from time, the evidence ot an increasing liberality toward our religious and edu cational institutions. - The late Col. Thayer, for many years Superintend ent of . the Military Academy at West Point, had given in his lifetime to Dart- month College to the amount of about S70,U00, and to the town of Braintree. Mass., he had engaged to contribute about $30,000 for a public library. His will, alter sundry family bequests, pro vides tnat tne residue snail constitute a fund for the establishment of an educa tional institution in which civil engiu eering and kindred branches shall be specialties, and of a high character, com paring favorably with any first-class academy 111 the state ; to De located con ditionally in Braiutree, otherwise in Quincy or Randolph, and for the benefit principally of those towns. The fund lor these purposes is variously estimated at irom ?iou,ooo to ipzuu.uuu. Superstition Is not dead vet. It lives even in Christian churches. The arch deacon of the Isle of Man recently in ducted the Rev. Francis Pierpout Bur ton Morman into the perpetual curacy of St. Thomas' church, Douglas, by what must ne regarded as a strange ceremony rue Jsle or Man Junes savs: Atie readiiijr several of the collects, and re citing the Lord's Prayer, the archdea con read the official documents, and then every one had to go outside the wes door of the church. That door being locKed, tue arciuieacon said : " it is my duty, in virtue of my office, to induct Mr. Norman aud put htm into posses sion of this church." He then handed the key to that gentleman, and told htm to uiiiocK the door, go Inside, lock every Dotty our. ami tneu ring the hell as challenge to all comers to dispute his right. These orders were obeyed, and alter tne nen had Deen rung, the arch deacon said that, according to tradition however many times the new iucunbeut rang the bell, so many yenrs would he keep the church. CRIMES AND CASUALTIES. Rudolph Blummenberg was arrested at Baltimore on Satu rday, ou a presenta tion uy the Grand Jury, for perjury In the noted liquor cases tried there in March last. He gave bail in $5,000. A most brutal and bloody murder oc curred in a bawdy house, on the Illinois shore, opposite Clinton, Ind., about two o'clock, Thursday. A young man named Hiram Rexwood, was attacked by a pimp named O'if eil, and brother of the keeper of the house, who, after knocking him down, stabbed him. some forty times, and then severed his head from his bod3' with an axe. The murderer has escaped, but vigorous efforts are being made for his capture. The inmates of the house have been arrested and put in confinement by the authorities in Pulton, Ills. A few days ago Thomas J. Craycroft, of Taylor Township, Harrison County, went into the forest near his residence to feed a large sow, whose pigs were not yet old enough to leave the bed. Ills wife and little prattling girl, wishing to see the pigs, accompanied him. The father threw the sow some corn, and, after eating a few mouthfuls, she started toward the child, with her huge jaws widely extended, making the most frightful demonstrations. Mr. Cray croft, seeing the peril of his child, sprang between it and the ferocious brute, at the same time calling to his wife to take the child away. Then com menced a struggle for life between Mr. Craycroft and the maddened brute. Be ing a large and powerful animal, she stood on her hind feet and thrust her fore feet against the breast of her victim with such tremendous force as came near knocking him down several times, mean time making repeated efforts to bite or cut him about the face and throat with her powerful tusks. Mr. Craycroft's only weapons of defence were his feet and hands; and in attempting to push the infuriated beast from his face he got his right hand several times in her mouth,- by which it was frightfully mangled. The mother, after running a few yards, looked back, and seeing her husband's life in peril set her child down and, armed with a club, started to his rescue; but before she got in reach the husband had disengaged himself enough to get hold of a club, with whicli lie dealt his fienish antagonist several heavy blows before she would desist; and eveu theu she made one effort, to renew the conflict. The spectacle presented by the victor as he walked panting from the field was truly frightful. Ills clothing was torn into shreds, and he was bespat tered from head to foot with blood. mingled with foam and froth from the mouth of the enraged monster. The blood "squshed" in his shoes as he alked. . Besides the mano-limr of the 1 ight hand he received severe cuts about is left hand and arm and a frisrhtful gash above his left knee. At a Catherine- of Poles in the little village of Kerust. in the Southern Js uie- men, on tlie29tli of July last, when all thought themselves secure from tlie in trusion of any of the numerous SDies who keep the Russian officials informed of the malcontents among them, Alex andria Kossowitz, a young lady whose miner, tne younger son ot a formerly noDie Polish family, was killed in the recent troubles in Warsaw, expressed her' sympathy with the unfortunates whom Russian severity had murdered or sent into exile. The mectinar was a purely social one, and none dreamed that anything said there would reach the ears of spies, for all present were known to be Poles, and firm haters of the harsh rule under which they then uveu. sun, as tne young girl in her passionate remembrances of a father's ove deplored his death, expressed her sympathy with rebellion and detestation of her oppressors.- she was cautioned. lest her loud tone should enable the peo ple at the window to hear her. With a hasty glance, as though to read in the faces of those about her who should be tray her, the young lady ceased her ex ecrations, and relapsed into silence. When 10 o'clock arrived, the latest hour ot i'oiish gatherings, the company sep arated, aud Aiexandrina Kossbwitz, ac companied by her affianced, Julian Tcm ensky, went to her home. If, iu passing from the house of the Catherine, she had beeu more observant, Aiexandrina would have seen the maliciously triumphant glances cast after her by Catherine Mer- ii"ff, a woman of about thirty-five years, a role Dy Dirth, and a sympathizer with ler unhappy couutry-womrn whenever ler own passion was not concerned, and. from the subsequent proceedings, it seems that in this case she had been su perseded in the affections of the young Dr. Temeusky by the more beautiful ana younger Aiexandrina Kossowitz. On the following day, shortly after rising, Aiexandrina was seized in her own home, a short distance from Kernst, by two Cossacks of the guard at the garri son, and taken before the petty judge. The young lady of nineteen, handsome aud trembling, produced no feeling of pity, .Having at nrst aexieti the accusa tion, she was confronted by Catherine Merdoff, and then acknowledged her of fense. In passing sentence the petty judge said that her seditious utterances might have warranted him in sending her before a higher tribunal, where the penalty would be death; but in view of ner youth and contrition he should mere ly order her to receive thirty-five lashes of the knout. Almost benumbed with shame and terror, the girl was led away to ne prepared for punisnment, ior 111 Russia all sentences, save lhat of death, are carried out immediately after they nave been pronounced. ord having been sent to the officer commanding the troops, a guard of two hundred men was ordered into the garrison square, and the excutioner ot the troops was called upon to be ready to carry out the duties of his office. In half ati hour after the sen tence had been given the troops had been formed in a hollow square, in the centre of wiiich hnd been placed ascaf- loui, standing on four legs, the top of which was au inclined plane. Besides tins stood the executioner, having in his muscular hand the knout. This weapon consists of a stick, or Handle, two feet long, ot soix leather, to the end of which is attached bv a loop a piece of flat raw hide two inches wide aud two feet long. in tne nanus or an experienced man the piece of raw hide can be made to cut like a knife. As the executioner stood facing the scaffold, Aiexandrina Kosso witz was brought to him by her guard, and in a few moments her clothing was removed to her waist, despite her al most mute appeals to be sparrd the shame As she pleaded she was bent on the plane, her hands strapped to the two upper cor ners, and her ankles secured at the foot of the structure. One of the execution er s assistants hell her head, aud the petty judge gave the order for whipping to commence. -1 wining tne long lash lu tlie air, tlie executioner stepped sudden ly backward, aud with a sharp crack the thong fell on the back of the sobbing girl, cutting a livid streak from her right siiouuier to ner waist, a tornulo tre mor passed over her, and a quick, low cry escaped her lips, but it was the only souuu sue uttered, aim were it not for the blood which soon commenced to flow it might have seemed that the whipnlnir was being done on the naked bpek of a corpse. When the last lash had been given the young lady was unfastened, and, with her clothing rudely thrown over her, she was taken to orison, aud thanking the judge for his mercy, ac cording to the necessary formula, she was delivered over to her friends. Five days afterwards the Oasette of Wllna contained this andounccnient: "The Polish criminal.
