Jolin Gonlon, when hn loft tlie room, wont out to look for Mr. Whittli'sinir, titit wits told thnt ho liml ojio into tho town. Mr. V liittlostafl hail had his own troubles in thinking of tho un lucky colneidunco of John (lordoii's re turn, niid had wnndored forth tlotcr minod to leavo thoso two together, bo thnt they might spenk to enoli other as llicy pleased. And, during his wulk, lie did come to a crtrtaln resolution. Should a roipio'.-t. of any k'md ho mado to him by John Oordon, it should ru cclvo not tho slightest nttcnlion. Ho wits a man to whom ho o-ed nothing, and for whoo wclfsiro he wm not in tho least solieitous. "Wliv should I bo puninhed and ho bo mucin hnppy?" It was thus ho gpoko to himself. Should. Jin encounter disappointment, in order that John (iordon should win the object on which ho hud sot his heart? Cer tainly not. His own heart was much dearer to bim than thnt of John Gor don. But If a request should bo made by Mary LnwrleP Alas! if It were so, then thcro must bo sharp misery in store for him. In I ho first place, were she to tell bim that this man was dour (o her, how was it possible thus ho should go to tho nltar with tho pirt, and there accept from her her trothP She had spoken of ft fancy which had crossed her mind re specting a man w ho could havo been no more than a dream to her, of whose whereabouts and condition nay, of his cry existence she was unaware. And eho bad told him that no promise, no word of love had psi.sod bclwoen them. "Yfcj, you may think of him," Ins had said, moaning not to debar her from tho um of thought, which should be opuu to fill tho world, "but let him not be spo ken of." Then sho had promised; and when she had corao again to withdraw hor promise, sho had done so with somo cock-and-bull story about the old wo man, which hod li ad no weight with bim. Then , ho had hor presence dur ing tho Interview between tho three on which to form his judgment. As far as be could remember, she had spokorj bardly above a word during that inter view. Sho had sat silent, unhappy, but not explaining the cause of her nn bapplnoss, It might well bo that site should be unhnppy in the presence of ber afllaaced husband and hor old lover. Hut now, if sho would toll him that she wished to be relieved from him, and to fcive herself to this strangor, she should Ce allowed to go. But he told himself that he would carry his generosity no Inrthor. llo was not called upon to of for to surrender himself. The man's looming had boen a mlsfortuno: but lot bim go, and in process of time he would iSe forgotten. It was thus that Mr. "ATiittlestaff resolved. It was now nearly five o'clock, and Mr. WhittlostafT,' as Gordon was told, dined at six. llo folt that he would not find the man before dinner unless he ro niainod at the houso and for doing so be had no exouso. He must return in tho evening, or sleep at the Inn apd come back the next morning. Ho must man age to oiteh the man alone, because be was assuredly minded to uso upon him ell the power of olognonce which he had at his command. And, as he thought it lmnrobablo to finr. him in the even ing, be dotermlnod to postpone - his task. Bui, in doing so, he felt that he should be at a loss. The eager words wore hot now within his memory, hv tngtaien sharpened against the anvil of bis tutmjebts bj his oolloijuv with tjlarr Lawrio. To-morrow they might have cooled. His pnepose might be as strong; but a man wtion be wish as to use burn ing words should uso them while tie words are on tire. John Gordon hod ft friend at Aries ford, or rather an acquaintance, on whom he had determined to .call, and. be wont forth to call on Eev. Mr. liluke. Of Mr. Blake ho only, know that he was ft curate of a neighboring parish, and that they two had Doen at Oxford together. So he walkod down to the inn to order his dinner, not feel ing his intimacy with Mr. Blako sulll cient to justify hint in looking for his dinner with him. A man always dines, let his sorrow be what it may. A woman coutunts hot-self with tea, and mitigates ber sorrow by an extra oun. John Gordon ordered a roost fowl and asked his way to tho curate's house. Kev. Montagu liluke was ourato of Little Alrosford, a parish, lying about throo -miles from the town. Tho vicar was a feeble old gentleman who hod gone away to dio lu tho Uivinra, aud Sir. Blake had the cara of tho souls to himself. Ho was a man whose lines hud fallen in pleasant places. Thorn wore about two huudrod and lifty men, women and childreu in his pariah, and not a Dissenter among thcui. For look lug after these folk ho had one hundred and twenty pounds per annum, and as pretty a Ultlu parsonage as could be found iu England There was a squiro with whom ho was growing in grace aud trieudship, who, being tho patron of tho living, might possibly bestow it upon him. It was worth only two hun dred and lifty pounds, and was not, thereforo, too valuable to bo expected, llo had a modest fortnno of his own, three hundred pounds a year, perhaps, and for tho best of his luek shall be mentionod last ho was engaged to tho daughter ol ono ot tuo proucudaries oi Winchester, i a pretty, bright lit tlo girl, with a further sum of iivo .thousand pouuds belonging to herself. Ho waj thirty years of ago, in tho possession of perfect health, and not so strict as to mako it necessary for him to abandon any of the innocent pleasures of this world. Ho could dino out, and play cricket, and read a novel. And should ho chance when riding about the parish, or visiting some neighboring parish, to coroo across the bounds, no would not scruple to boo them over a field or two. bo that Rev. Montagu Blako was, upon tho whole, a happy fellow. Ho and John Gordon had boen throwu together at Oxford for a short timo during the last months of their resilience, and,' though rjuito unliko ench other in their pursuits, circum stances had mado them intimate. It was woll that Gordon should take a stroll for a couple of hours before din ner, and thereforo he started off for Littlo Alresford. Going into tho par sonage gate ho was - overtaken by Blake, aud introduced himself. "Don't you remomber Gordon at Kxoter. "John Gordou! Ciacious me! Of eourso 1 do. What a good fellow you are to conio and look a fellow up! Where havo you come from, and whore aro you going to, and what bring you to Arlosford, beyond tho charit iblo in tention of dining with ino? Oh, non sense! not dino; but you will, and I can give you a bod, too, and breakfast, ami shall bu delighted to do it for a week. Ordered your dinner? Then we'll uu nrdor lu I'll send tho boy in and put that all right. Shall I mako him bring your bag hack?" Gordon, however, though he assented to dinner, mado his friend understand that it was Impera tive that ho should bo at tho inn that night ' " Yes," said Blako, whon they had settled down to wait for dinner, "I am f arson horo a sort of a one, at least, am not only curate, but live in expec tation of higher things. Our Siaiiro hero, who owns tho living, talks of giv ing it to me. There isn't a better fellow living than Mr. Furnlval, or his wife, or his four dauirhters." " Will ho bo as generous with ono of thorn as with tho living?" " There is no uoccssity, as far as I am concerned. I canto here already pro vided in that respect. If you'll remain hero till September, you1 11 see mo a married man. Ono lvattio Forrester Intends to condescend to become Mrs. Montague Blako, Though I say it as shouldn't, a sweeter human being doesn't, livo on earth. I mot mr soon after I hod token orders. But I bad to wait till I hod some sort of a houso to put her into. Her father is a clergy man, liko mysolf, to wo are all iu a boat together. Sho's got a litlio mon ey, and 1'vo got a little monoy, so that wo sha'n't absolutely starve. Now you know all about mo; and what havo yon boen doing yourself?" John Gordon thought that this friond of bis had been most communicative. Had Mr. Blake written ft biography of himself down to the present poriod, he could not havo boen more f ulVor accurate in his details. ' But Gordon folt that as regarded himself he must be mota reticent. "I Intended to have joined my father's bank, but that came to griof." "Yes; I did hear of some trouble in that rospoct" "And thon I wont outto the diamond fields." "Dear me! that was ft long way." "Yes, It Is ft long way and rather rough towards tho end." "Did von do anv good at the dlamond flolds? I don't fancy that men often bring much money home with thorn." "I brought some. H "Enough to do ft follow any good in his after life?" "Well, yes; enough to content mo, only that a man is not easily contented who has boen among diamonds." "Orwca amor duimondif" said the parson. "I can easily nndorstand that. And thon, when ft fellow goes back again, he is so apt to lose it all. Don't yon expect to see your diamonds turn Into slate-stones?" . "Not except In the ordinary way of expenditure. My diamonds, for .the most part, have been turned into ready money, and take the comfortable shape of a balance at my banker's." "I'd loave it there, or brry land oi railway shares. If I bad realized in that venture enough' to loos; at it, I'd sever go out to the diamond-field) ftgaln. . i "It's hard to bring an occupation of that kind to an end all at once," said John Gordon. -iaadt.amt ((amffljciirrejpeated Eev. Montagu Blake, shaking his head. "If you gave me three I could easily imagine that I should toss up with another tfellow who had three also, double or quits till I lost them all. ' But we'll make sure of dinner without any such hazardous proceeding." Then thoy went into the dining-room and en joyed thcmsolvos, without anv refer ence having been made to the Business which had brought John Gordon into the neighborhood, "You'll find that port wine rathor good, 1 can't all'ord claret, because it kikes such a lot to go far enough." "Why do you make a ceremony with "Because it's so pleasant to havo an excuse for such a ceremony. It wasn't you only I was thinking of. Think what it is to havo a prudent mind. I had to got it mysolf' out of t'io collar, becauso girls can't understand that wiuo shouldn't bo treated in tho sanio way as physic. By-tho-by, what brought you into this part of tho world at all?" "I camo to seo ono Mr. Whlttle stail'." "What! old William Whittlestia? Then, lot me tell you, you havo come to sea as honest a fellow, and as good hearted a Christian, as any that I know." "You do know him?" "Oh, yes, 1 know him, I'd liko to seo tho uiau whose bond is better than old WhittlestalT'H. Did you hear what ho did about that young ludy who is living with him? She was tho daughter of a .friend simply of a friend who diod in pecuniary distress. Old Wbittlo stair brought her luto his houso and made he.r Ills own daughter. It isn't every ono who will do that, you know." "Why do you call him old?" said John Gordon. "Woll, I don't know. Ho is old." "Just turned fifty." "Fifty is old. Perhaps, if ho had been a married man, he'd looked younger, llo has got a very nice youug girl there with him; and if ho isn't too old to think of such things, ho may marry hor. Do you know Miss Law rio?" "Yes; I know her." "Don't you think sho's nico? Only my gooso is cooked, I'd go in for her sooner than any one I can seo about." "Soonor than your own squire's four daughters?" "Well, yos. They're nico girls too. But 1 don't fanoy ono out of four. And they'd look higher than the curate." A prebendary is as high as a squire," said Gordon. "There are prebendaries and there are squire. Our squire isn't a swell, though he's an uncommonly good fel low. If I get a wifo from ono and n living from tho other, I shall think my self very lucky. Mi liwrio is a hau'l somo girl, and everything that she ought to he; but if you were to seo K:uV tie Forrester, think you would say that she was A 1. 1 sometimes wonder whether old Whittlestuff will thiuk of marrying." Gordon sat silent How supremely happy was this young parson with his Kattie Forrester and Ins promised liv ing, and with his bottlo of port wine and comfortablo houso! All tho world seemed (o have smiled with Monlaguo lllako. But with him, though there had boon much success, there bad been none of tho world's smiles. Ho was aware, or thought that ho was aware, that tho world would never smile on him unless ho should succeed in per suading Mr. Whiltlcstair to give up the wifo whom ho had chosen. Then lie felt tempted to tell his own story to this young parson. 1 hoy were alono together, aud it soemed as though Frov idenco had provided him with a friend. And the subject of Mary Lawrio s iu tendod marriage had been brought for- ward In a peculiar manner. But ho was by nature altogether different from Air. Blake, and could not blurt out his lovo-slory with e:wy indifference. "Do you know Mr. W hittlcstaff well?" ho usked. "Pretty well... I'vo bn horo four years; and bo's a noar neighbor. I think I do know him wclL" "Is he a sort of man likely to fall In love with such a girl as Miss Lawrie, seoing that she is an Inmate of his Uotisu?" " Well," said the parson, after some consideration, "if you ask mo, I don't thiuk ho is. He seems to havo settled down to a cortain manner of life, and will not, I should say, be stirred from it very quickly. If you have anv views in that direction, I don't think he'll bo your rival." "Is ho a man to care much for ft girl's love?" "I should say not" "But if ho bad once brought hlmsolf to ask her?" said Gordon. "And if she accepted him?" sug gested the other. "That's what I moan." "I don't think he'd lot hor go very easily. 11ob a sort of dog whom you can not easily persuade to give up ft bone. If bo has sot his heart upon matrimony he will not be turned from it Do you know anything of his Intentions?" "I fancy that he is thinking of It" "And you moan that you wore think ing of It, too, with tho same lady." " No, I didn't mean that" Then be added, aiurft pause, "That is just what I did not mean to say. I did not mean to talk about myself. But since you ask me tho question, 1 will answer it truly I have thought of the same lady. And my thoughts wore earlier In the field than his. I must say good-night now," ho said, somewhat brusquely. "I have to walk bock to Alrosford, and must seo Mr. WhittlcstafT early in the morning. According to your viow I sha'n't ao much with him. And If it be so, I shall bo off to the diamond Holds again by the first malL" "You don't say so!" "That is to be my lot In life. Iam very glad to bave come across you once again, and am delighted to find you so happy In your prospects. You have told me everything,, and I bave done pretty much the same to yon. I shall disappear from Alresford, and never more do beard of. You needn't talk much abont me and my love; for though I shall be out of the way at Kim beriey, many thousand miles from bore, a man docs not care to have bis tame in every one's mouth." ' a word dboutJlIhui Lavr-le; unless, in depo, you shquld be suwesvful' "Thorn is not theiroiaoteAt DoseibUten of that, "said Gordon, as be took hi leave. "1 wonder whether she biood oi him," sold Utovurnto to .himself, whoa he resolved to go to bed Instead of lie nnmg nu sermon that night. i odldn't wonder if she Is. for ho Is tot the sort of man to mate ft clrl fond ot him.' " 10BS GORDON AGAIN OUIMVO dtOKBH"9.IIK.U The next morning. when John Gordosi reached tho corner of the roadnot w'hiWb; Btood C'rokorg Hull, h met on the roadway, oloso to the houso, a maafcdls reputable old man with awoodonlb and a rat noso. This was Mr. UagEOMJ or Sergeant Baggott, as he was general- iv caneu, auu was now known about ml Alesford to bo the husband of Mr.WbiM tlostafT s housukoepor. For nows bad got abroad that Mb. Bnggult was about to claim his wife. Kvcrybodykww it be fore the inhabitants of Crokcr's HaTl: And siuco yesterday afternoon all Croker's Hall knew it Ho wus stand ing close to tho houM, which stood a little baek from the road, between nluo aud leniu the morning, on drunk as a lord. Though ho had only one leg of tho flush and ono of wood, ho did not tumble down, though ho brandished in uiu air tlie st.wk with which hu was aeoustomed to disport himself. Thw Sergeant had comu out ou tho road from tho yard iirto which tho back-door of tho hnusu opened, aud scmned to John Gordou as though; having been so fur expelled, ho was determined to be driven no further, and bo was accompa nied, at a distance, by Ms wifo. "Now, Timothy liaggett," began tho unfortu nate woumn, "you may just take your self away out of that, as fat as your logs can carry you, before tho police comes to fettli you." "My legs! Whoever heard a fellow told of his legs when thcro was ono of them wooden. And as for tho perlioe, I shall want the perlico to fololuuy wife along with me. 1 oin't a-goinr to stir out of this place without Mrs. B. I'm a hold man, and wants a woman to look artermo. Come along, Mrs. B." Then bo made a motion as though to run at, ter her, still brandishing tho stiek. Bui sho retreated, and he ciuuo down, seated on tho pathway by the roadside, as though he had only tiocumplishcd an In tended maneuver, "(iivo mo a drop o' suniuiut, ill rj. B., and I don't miud if I Btay here half an hour longer." Then he laughed loudly, nodding his his bead merrily ut tho bystanders. All this happened just as John Gor don came up to tho corner of tho road, from whence, by a pathwav, turned the main entrance into Mr. WhiUlustalTs garden, lie could but seo tho drunken, red-nosed man, and tho old woman, whom ho recognized n.s Mrs. Whittle staff's servant, and a crowd of idlers who followed Sergeant Baggott np to tho scene of his present exploits. Crok er's Hall was not above a milo from tho town, jn-t where tho town was begin ning to become country, and wliorc tho bouses nil Imd gardens belonging tu them, and the larger houses a field or two. "Vfs. sir; master is at home. If you please to ring tlio bell ono of the girls will come out" This was said by Sirs. Baggctt, advancing almost over the body" of her prostrate husband.' "Drunken bruto!" sho said, as eho passed him. Ho only htugbed, and looked around upon tho bystanders with triumph. to be continued. French and English Detectives. In England wo havo a curious but very erroneous idea that if a policeman wears a suit of plain clothes instead of his regular uniform ho is fully able to lind out all about any crime thnt has ever been committed A greater mis take was never made. Nut only to tho "dangerous classes," but to almost every Londoner who is anything of an observer regarding his fellow-men, "plain-clothes" oilieors, ns our do Uietives aro called, aro actually as well known as if they wore the helmet, blue tuuio and black leather waist-bott of tlie regular paiiceman. It is quite otherwise in Trance. A French de tective bos nothing whatever to do with serving summonses or warrants. Ho never arrests a criminal, but be points nut to tho regular police where crimi nals are to bo found. It is only on very i aro occasions that he even appears as witness against a prisoner, aud whon ho does s he imsumes for the future a dress and generul appearance qui to unlike whut ho has hitherto borne. A French duteclive who can not disguise himself iu such a manner that his old est friend would not bo able to reccg ni.e bim is not deomod worth his salary. Hu takes the greatest professional pride Iu this art In a word, tlie French detectives are the spies sent by Die army of law and ordor to find out all about the enemy, that Is constantly waging war against life and property. In England we have no similar set of men, and what are tho cousequenoes? Why, that unloss ft murderer, burglar, or othor offender is either taken red bandod, or loaves behind him some very plain marks as to who ho is or where he is to be found, crime with us is, as ft rulo, undetected. Soonor or later, not withstanding our National prejudices against all thut is secret and under hand, wo must adopt a system for the detection of crime on the plan that is found to work so well in France, and the sooner we do so tho better, unless we want to make I'ndand In general, and London in particular, more than even it is now tho happy hunting ground of all, tho scoundrels In Kurope All Frenchmen who bave visited our emintry say that our ordinary police is the very best In the world; that the manner In which thoy preserve ordor in the streets Is above praise; and they aro right Nor can a word be said against tho character, the integrity, or the Intentions also of our detectives. But tho system on which they are trained Is essentially bad. They are the wrong men lu the wrong place the square pegs iu tho round holes.

An Interesting Sketch oi the Han Who Da vised the Moat Destructive of Hod. t era Guns Ills Checkered and Eventful Career. Heehostor (N. Y.) HoraldJ The Galling gun is, of all modern en gines of war, most terrible. I askod its inventor, Richard Galling, not long since, how hO'Cnme to bond bis mind In such di rection. "Well," ho ropllod, shifting his gold glasses, "I was in Indianapolis dur ing the war, and most every day walked through the Union Depot. Bad scenes were on every hand thou families all torn up fathers, brothers and husbands going lo the front, and, uftor a bit, many ot their todies coining buck, when the wails of woo wore bit luled with the cheers of recruits and tho few happy greetings of re turn. The terrible scones I saw, the agonizing trials of purtlngs and meetings, mid the depths of despair ah, I ahull never forgot- It scorned so terrible- to me, this war, uti'i'o an I slaughter, that I became almost luxchuttud by its horror, and dually conceived the idea of Invent ing a gun so powerful and eileclivo as an engine of war that soldiers might iu the main be dispensed with." This proposition, Inconsistent though It be, led the way, and the Inventor talked on as wo smoked together iu tho twilight. "An 1 1 did havo a timo over that gun, 1'rovlous to that I had invented a grain drill, for which I had sold manufacturing rights all over the Wont, realizing lu the neighborhood of $9,000 theretioin. I was pretty well fixed; when I commenced on tho gun business my shekels began to go. Aflor perfecting the model of tho orlglual gun I had a long soarch m quest of uu es tablishment adequate to their manufaoluro. Finally, when six guns were completed in the Cincinnati shop jthe works wore Qred, dou'ttless by Southern sympathizers and the whole was a dead loss. The Cincinnati typo foundry was my next resource, and as tho war bad thrown a damper upon type founding and tho works wore idlo, the proprietors mado a contract for another bull-dozen guns, When completed a Chi cago man on his wuy to Washington under took their Rule. Secretary Btanton wouldn't evou look nt them, however. Oenerul But ler wus the only military man whs could be brought to nee tho merit of the Invention and on his own authority ho purchased them at $1,000 each. Unluckily for mo my selling agent (ailed before' accounting to md and the salo brought mo nothing. Gen eral Butler used tho guns very cIToetlvcly In oneongageiuent, when, tho ammunition b"lii3 exhausted, tho Secretary of War per emptorily refused to (urnisti supplios, and the weapons lay idle.. "I mado more guns, however, my friends' advice to the contrary. Now the United States Government owns ovor ono hundred ef them, and they nro used by every civilized Government." Gntlin-; bus, like most Inventors, had a cheekored cur-or, yet one marked through out by leas of falluro than any of Ins class. The screw as a motive power was his first invention. At that timo he wus but a boy with bis father in Virginia. A neighbor Invited the father to Inspect a jnoilel of a boat so constructed as to operate! puddles underneath tho water and obviate tlie dif ficulties of a motive power In w hich side wheels wero liable to be shot away during engagement Young Catling was on In terested spectator of the trial and, noticing the utter clumsiness nf action and wusto of power in tho mechanism, set his brnln to work to devise something better. In a short time he evolved a perfect working model with tho screw propeller as motive power, nis rattier wat called upon to pass Judgment upon tho Invention. "It's worth patenting, Richard," the senior con cluded, on Inspection; "In tho tall I'll have business for you at Bal timore, and you enn go on to Washington and malto application your self." A few months luter this programme was carried out, but, much to the boy's chagrin, V was found that Erricson bad presented a similar model two days In ad vance of the former's claim, and not fully understanding tho value of the Invention, or In fact, the means of substantiation of of prior claim, the Inventor did not con test the mutter, as there could be no doubt that It was original with both. During the early years of bis progress as an Inventor Gulling mado a visit to Niag ara Falls. Tlie magnificent power of the cataract suggested a train of thought which bore fruit In the formation of a com pany In Pittsburgh with the object of sup plying compressed air as a motive power from some central point. Falling to obtain a patent upon tho idea, it was abandoned, though the decisions of the case have since been made the basts for the patent-office rulings of the United Slates. Captain Galling Is now about seventy years of age, quite gray, but active and eroct as of yore. His I a familiar figure at Washington hotels, and in fact at the capitals of tho world, thoutrh his nominal residence is at Hartford, Conn. Of late be has perfected several valuable Im provements upon the engine of war which bears his name, all of which are applied to the more recent purchases of this Govern ment. A Cottage by the Sea. Long Dranch Cor. Baltimore Pun. Charles Loland has erected ona of the most peculiar looting cottages along, the coast, near Long Branch, The building is In the shape of a hollow square, with a courtyard in the oentor. It Is only one story high and Is shingled all over. It is built after the style of al Mexican dwelling. In the cantor ot the front side of the build ing Is a gateway, through which a horse and carriage can be driven, and the visit or, as he enters, reads upon a placard In front of bim i "No drones allowed within the outer walls." Alongside the gateway Is the word "content," which Mr. Loland has adopted as the name of the place. The house looks comfortable and ebtiotng, though everything is completed after the old style ot building, with open flre plaoes and no plastering either upon the sides or overhead. There are six chimneys, each ono constructed differently.
