inn wiih 1 1 An a Hattitinnri ... . . . Kapidiy imperceptibly to mem- both, time was passing away; and autumn was harvesting the brightest hour of the girl's young life the ssddest and the .maddest of lin on wild manhood. The cortraft of Hope made but alow progress' towards completion-' It seemed as if the artist skill Tailed to portray ice master true conception - of a conect likeness of the patient model who aat (here, hour after hour, day afier day, in serene, contented obedience to his desire. The coloring waa'neyer quite right ; the ideal upon his canvass seemed Jess perfect thaa the eqtual; and yet a leas interested observer would have 'thought the fair, weet face which looked forth from his canvass bore no poor comparison to that of the original. But at length the artist bin Belf con fessed that he could do no more. It was the last day of autumn. The gale of the preceding night was subsiding, but still the wind moaned drearily about the casements, and with every fresh gust the rain drops broke heavilly upon the window-panes. Fierce had been the storm over night ) but it was nothing in its height to the tempest of passion and despair which had been driving through 'the breast of one man. 'Alone in his chamber, with a letter crushed in impotent anger before him, . Harry Worthington fought a fierce bat tie with honorable duty and selfish desire , The very spirit which was tempting him to sin and ruin, and the remnant of duty and virtue yet left him, the good angel ol ms me, naa, 10 nis exciieu ian cy, stood there embodied in the half- lighted room, and together fought the .. combat, the result of which he was to abide forever. The trace of the conflict was visible in Lis haggaid cheek and his sunken eyes ; but they who looked upon him that day in their innocent guilelessness attributed his haggard cheek and fevered aspect alone to physical ailment. Until a late hour in the afternoon Hope had not seen Harry Worthingtoa, when he sent for her to come to his studio. Again he was to paint her portrait: she was to sit to him, bat not in the simple costume which she was wont to wear. To the oaprice of his fancy the girl had yielded, with her wonted alacrity in giv ing pleasure to those whom she loved ; and she did love Harry Worthington, though the depth of that love she had never yet sought to fathom. In a broca ded robe of the quaint make and costly fabric of a century previous, which had been treasured from almost time immera orial in the Worthington family; with leaves of autumn's brilliant dyes braided into her glistening hair, and flushed with pleasure by the expectation of his delight Bhe knocked softly at his closet door. Tbete was a glow such as Hope Ray mond had never before beheld there on Harry Worthington's ckeek. as she swept gracefully past him into the litttle room, the faded but costly train trailing heavily over the white matting of the floor asjshe took her accustomed seat. Those turbu lent blue eyes bent themselves upon her, as he took the little trembling hands within his own; and the girl's cheek flushed to a deep, warm glow, that grew mellow in the roseate hue of happiness, as her companion spoke. Only ,once the sweet face grew thoughtful, and that was when he bade her say nothing of what had passed that day to his aunt; but she did not doubt that be bad good and co gent reasons for his request. The leaves of crimson and gold which Hope Raymond had Braided into her hair, she placed hat night in the Bible which lay upon the table in her chamber, for they were henceforth to her, conse crated relics of the gladdest hour of a gay, - glad life. Again and again, in her antique robe, Hope sat to her artist lover. And now Harry Worthington no longer lingered ever the features growing wiih wondrous loveliness upon his canvass; but as the nortrait approached its completion, it was was of a type very different from that of the first painting, flow, while ne paint ed with conscious and subtle art, with the eloquence of adroit reasoning he was seeking to instil something of his own scepticism into the guileless heart, which would have rejected at once, with fear and quick abhorrence, the bold avowal of infidelity But gradually, as, half mystified, she listened, he grave sweet eyes took a deeper light, a less passionless expression; the fever of unrest, which for the first time entered the spirit of her youth, burnt in a glowing color upon her cheeks. ' In the rapid expansion of her intellect, which dailv communion with him devel oped, the expression of Hope Raymond's countenance assumed a different and more striking character; but it had lost the serenity or a hitherto unrumea existence. When side by side Harry Worthington traced the two likenesses of the girl, then he perceived how great was the change in that expressive face ; and he knew that the last painted was the type of a spirit" more closely assimilated to himself, than the first had been. ' Standing on the hearth of the little parlor where Aunt Bessie and herself had breakfasted tor Harry was away on a brief visit, to the city Hope Raymond spread her hands to the cheerful blaze, iii the wide open fireplace. ' As she'itood there she gazed thought fully, almost sadly, down upon the quaint urtrt rnra device of a ring ol antique work- manship,'with which her finger had been pnrh-Med but a few days previous. "The symbol of the tie which made her," Har ry Worthington had told her, "his own;" and In the glance of his eye, in the brief words which he had then spoken, she had comprehended his contempt for any farther solemnization of the love which he professed.' But she had not refused its acceptance. The belief of her lover had not yet be come her 'own. but the mirage of a first 'scepticism lay cold on her brain.

New York, on Friday 12th inat., about 2,000 persons being present densely crowding the church in every part, it wis proposed that a telegraphic communication be established with the most important of similar prayer meetings in other cities. The following letter was accordingly prepared and dispatched over the wires, to the Union prayer meeting, held in Javne's Hall, Philadelphia. We clip from ihe Daily Tribune: New York, March 12, 1858, 121 P. M. To the Philadelphia Union Prayer meeting, Jayne s Hall : Christian Brethren The New York John street Union Meeting send you creeling in brotherly love '.

On the ensuing day, at noon, the same John street Church being crowded be yond the capacity of the building, inclu ding the main audience room and base ment, the following lelegraphio response from Philadelphia, was received and read to the meeting : Philadelphia, March 13, 1858.

Phe result was yeas 33, nays 2D, showing majority of eight in favor or admitting Kansas into the Union with the constitu tion which had been formed by the Le compton convention and endorsed by the people of the 1 erritory at the election on the 24th December list. Mr. Crittenden s substitute, which re quired 'that the constitution formed by the Lecompton convcntipn, be submitted to the people of Kansas, and if approved by them the f resident shall admit Kansas by proclamation," was defeated by a vote of yeas 21, nays 34. Mr. rush withdrew his amendment, Mr. Douglas made another speech in opposition to Lecompton and the admin iteration, to which Mr. Toombs replied. Mr. Green also replied to the same peech. Houston voted in favor or admission in obedience to instructions of the Texas egialature. Mr. Pugh vo'ed against it or the same reason. Subjoined is the vote as we find it in the Telegraphic repoits. There is an omission of one vote on each side in this report ; the name here recorded counting yeas 32, nays z4. 1 be bill as amended to admit Kansas into the Union under the Lecompton Con stitution, was then put and passed ; yeas 33, nays 25.

It will be some time, however, before the vote will be taken, and changes may be effected in the minds of members that will bring nbout a different result from that which is now indicated. The fate of the bill in the House may at presenl.be regarded as uncertain. Senator Crittenden. John J. Crittenden, of Kentucky, in the Senate on Wednesday spoke against the Lecompton Constitution, as became a patriot, a statesman, and a man. The telegraph gives but a bare outline of his speech, but that little God be thanked is enough to show that the country has still in its councils men capable of viewing a great question, and a great emergency, through a national medium, unclogged by sectional passions, or partizin prejudices, or the suggestions of selfish ambition. It is refreshing to turn from the wretched appeals to those passions and prejudices, which have marked, and are still marking, this Kansas discussion, from day to day, to the nobler exhortations we have here for union and harmony for justice and right for the honor, and glory, and safety of the Republic. It is sweet music to the ear after the harsh disunion discour ses that have filled the Senate Chamber the few days past. It revives within us the memories of Clay and Webster. and learns us not yet to despair of the Republic. No wonder that Foreign Ministers the representatives of foreign nations were among the brilliant crowd that thronged the Chamber to listen. It was an Ameiican Kpeech from an American Patriot and as such it must have a com manding influence upon the question at issue. It may not change results in the Senate, but in the House, among the Peoples Representative's and among the people themselves, it will make its mark for good. N. Y. Express. Pledges to Submit The Federal Administration, the last summer, before the Southern Keitts made contrary demands upon it, bad no manner r l , r . ..ir ... ...I :. ui uesiiatiuu in pieuging lueii iu uuiuu the Jwhole Kansas Constitution to the people of Kansas. The President a in structions to Governor Walker, and the Governor's repeated declarations, were to the effect that the "Constitution" (not a part of It only) ought to be, and would be submitted to a Uir vote oi me people. The whole country expected it, On the 7th of July last, the Washington Union staled that . " " There can be no such thing as ascer taining, clearly and without doubt, the will of the people of Kansas, in any way except by the direct expression of it at the polls. A construction not subjecteu to that test, no matter what it contains, will never be acknowledged by its oppo nents to be anything but fraud. Many of the delegates publicly pledged themselves that it should be submitted. Here is one of the pledges published before the election. Read it, and then say whether,, under all the circumstances the refusal of that convention to submit Constitution to the people, was not a trick and a fraud which just men every where should condemn and refuse to carry into execution : " To the Democratic'Volers of Douglas County: " It has been stated by that Abolition newspaper, the Herald of Freedom, and by some disaffected bogus Democrats, who have sot up an Independent ticket, for the purpose of securing the vole of the Black. Republicans, that the regular nominees ol the Democratic convention were opposed to submitting the constitu tion to the people, we the the candidates of the Democratic party, submit the following resolution, which was adopted by the Democratic convention which placed us in nomination, and which we heartily endorse, as a complete refutation of the slanders above referred to. John Calhoun, A. W. Jones, W. S. Well, H. Butcher, L. S. Bolli.no, John M. Wallace, -Wm. T. Spicely. L. A. Prathek. Lecompton, Kansas Territory, June 13, 1857." ' Resolved, That we will support no man as a delegate to the Constitutional Convention, whose dulies it will be to frame the constitution of the future State of Kansas and to mend the political institution j under which, we, as a people, are to live, unless he pledges himself fully, freely, and without reservation, to use everv honorable means to submit the same to every bona fide actual citizen of Kansas at the proper time for the vote being taken upon the adoption by the people, in order that the said constitution may be adopted or rejected by the actual settlers in this Territory, as the majority of voters shall decide. This John Calhoun is the " Lord Pro tector" who afterwards made the election judges count the votes for the Legislature elect, and who, even until now, refuses to declare whether the Free State or Pro Slavery party has the majority. Never theless, the President yet rewards him by making him Surveyor General of Kansas and Nebraska, and he draws the pay, though "on duty" only in Washington. One Tear Ago. It is iustone year since James Buch anan assumed the powers and responsi bilities of the Presidency, and several of the newspapers are asking: " What is the record T How has he discnargeo. we duties of his high office ! How has he stood the trying test which provea so fatal to his predecessor! President Pierce promised well so did President Buchanan. The one raftered ana laueu, how has it been thus far. with the other T The iV". Y. Courier, in the course of a long review of the questions put, concludes as follows : " We see officials all around us who are as comcletelv unnerved as the slaves of an Eastern seraglio, crouching before the scymiter s edge and the bowstring s twang, and doing biddings, rather than yield to which, men of integrity and firmness would rather experience death, itself. He hesitates at no means of de moralization. He appeals not less to lordid hope than to sordid fear, using the hope of gaining office as a lure, just ab he does the fear of losing office, as a bond. No President has done more to destroy personal independence and debase public spirit than be. In this respect just as in the others, his practical conduct has completely contradicted his veroai assurance. Washington Items. The American members of Congress it is said have held a caucus, and deter mined to oppose the policy of the Presi dent upon high conservative ground. Mr. Crittenden, of Kentucky, has spo ken for them in the Senate. In the Houst , tho majority of them will take ground against the administration, and advocate . ... r ir l. Ihe atimission Ol ivansaa unuci a iuu- siitution which shall receivo the approba tion of the people of the territory. Senator Crittenden has an amendment which he will offer to the Kansas bill, providing that she shall be admitted un der the Lecompton Constitution with the condition that the Constitution be sub mitted to the people, and if accepted then that the State come in by the proclama tion of the President. The Story of a Jack-Knife The Boston Ledger tells the following story : ' In 1780 a youth, then residing m Maine, owned a jack knife which he, be ing somewhat of a trading disposition, sold for a gallon of West India rum. This he retailed, and with the proceeds purchased two gallons, and eventually a bariel, which was followed in due time Schools in Indiana. The Supreme Court of Indiana has made a decision which is exciting a great deal of criticism in the newspapers, ihe constitution provides for the support of common schools on a uniform system. Some of the cities finding the amount received from the Slate inadequate to the support of such schools as they require, have been authorized by law to raise an additional amount by taxation. But the court has decided that, if schools are better in one town than in another, they are not on a uniform system, and that therefore, the law authorizing the towns to tax s them' selves is unconstitutional. . Removal of Jndge Loring. 'I he Telegraph announces the removal by Gov. Banks, of Judge Loring, of Massachusetts. It will be recollected that Loring was the United States officer before whom the fugitive slave, Burns, was tried and remanded back to tlavery, some three years ago. For his alleged unjust decision in that ca6e, the last two Legislatures of Massachusetts requested Gov. Gardner to remove him from the Probate Judgeship of Suffolk co., but on his declining to do so, the same request was made by the present Legislature, f Gov. Banks. That gentleman in comply ing with the request submits a message stating his reasons therefor. A Contrast.

Millard Fillmore, ex-president of the United St?te!2V. Y. Day Book. A County in Virginia Without Slave. The Jeffersnnville Advocate names a curious fact with regard to the division of Tazewell county. Tazewel is one of the largest counties in (lie State and nearly equally divided by a ridg running east and west the waters on the North side of said ridge finding their way into tho Ohio through Big Sandy, and those on the South side through the Holston. That portion of the county North of the ridge is to be divided into two counties one from the Western end to be called Buchanan, and the Eastern one Breckenridge. In the former there are only three slaves, and in the latter not one. It is an anomoly, surely, to find a county in the Old Dominion without a solitary representative of the "peculiar institution."

It is also the opinion of the consul that any armed expedition which should arrive at Mexican ports, even under the pretext of assisting the Liberal or Constitutional party, would be regarded as filibusters, and the individuals composing it, treated as such.

He does not believe that a spirit of conciliation to wards them would now be properly ap- priciated, or rather that it would be wronglv interpreted. In view of the treasonable temper and feeling pervading the leaders and the great portion of the Mormons, he thinks that neither the hon or nor dignity of the government will allow tne stignteRi concession, j ney should be made to submit to the constitu tion and tke legal demauds of the govern ment unconditionally.

I heir threat to op pose the troops in spring will not have the . slightest influence in delaying the army, and if they desire to join issue be believes that it is for the interest oi me government that they should have the opportunity.

Angelic Visitation. , We see in the papers that by a recent development the woild is informed of the appearance of an Angel in Hancock co., in this slate, sometime last August. It appeared to a , little girl about five years old and to the little girl's mother, talking with them and giving them information as to the precise time when each of them would die, &c. The mother it seems, kept the whole matter a secret, unti subsequent to the fulfilment of a part of the Angel's prophesies in the death of the j daughter, and the peculiar circumstances attending it, intending that it should remain locked in her own breast. But it appears that a short time ago, the mat ter bearing heavily (a hem I) upon her mind, she made it public, and (of course) the whole thing is to be given to the people in pamphlet form. Verily, earth must be getting back to its primeval purity again, and we are to rpnfiiva information of events " in the dim vista" of the future, by Angels ap pearing and talking with us as in olden lime. Spirit rappings are to be knocked into a cocked hat laid aside as a means of communication nltogether too imperfect and Inn tedious for these times, and we are to have it by word of mouth, from live Angels. Wonder what another half century will bring. Car. Fr. Pr. Bites and Stinos of Insects. As fc remedy against the stings and bites of in sects, and of all poisonous reptiles. Bhaoo's Arctic Liniment is unsurpassed. Such are its disinfecting and penetrating prop erties, that no matter how virulent, may be tho poison from a bite or sting, this Liniment at once reaches the seat of the venom, however deep, and neutralizes and extracts it, With Bragg's Arctic Lini ment at hand, the bite'of a rattlesnake Is as harmless as that of a gnat. It relieves the smart ofmusquito bites instantly, and id a few minutes entirely destroys the pain from a Biing. For sale by Hening to Melvin. Toledo, March 27.
