The broiling sun'' poured down over the town and eved'the shady fillet with the elm avenue 'was breathlessly hot. Inside the Weston'a pld fashioned frame house, however, there was a, sense of freshness and the; broad matted hall with cane seats, and Imge bowl of pond lilies on the marble table, was a place where, If there wai' any' coolness to be had, you were sure to And it. Mrs, Weston and the gU"3,were all tip stairs in the white frilled dressing; iacketsand peticoats, flitting In and out of theiarge siiuueu ucuroouis, ojiu uaciwwaru auu forward across" the -"upper hall, putting the finishing touches to their prepara tions for n journeytwhleh the girls had caused tiielr fatlierto substitute for their usual quiet stay 4t&some place anion the hills not more than two hours from home. Jlr. Weston was a successful lawyer, devoted to his profession, and never so happy as when he was going in the beaten track home to a one o'clock din tier, home again to a six o'clock tea, out again to his ofilce at the latest. When he was a young man, he had been half over the world, and he knew his own country pretty thoroughly east of the Mississippi, but to his thinking no spot so delightful as the elm shaded city where he had lived nearly all bis life. It wasiiotalareefamilv. There were only the two girls at home and one son, James Watson, who was married and ived in Xew York. Jenny and Lily were as unlike as possible Disappear ance. Jenny, whom her father called Jenny Wren, was rather short and quite plump with brown hair and eyes, rosy cheeks aud a cherry-liuned mouth which seemed to laugh much more than most people's, and fortunately could how lovely white teeth, and a sweet bright, good-tempered expression which quite made you forget a very pug nose. Jliiy was the beauty of the family, and Jenny took immense pride and delight n her tall, graceful figure, abundant golden hair, pure satin-like skin with the faintest tinge of piuk In the cheeks, and large, clear, violet-blue eyes. "My tall white Lily," she used to call her sister who had sometimes a look of frag ile delicacy to alarm one, and, though not ill, was never very strong, and was taken care of at home as if she had been a piece of fine old china. Both the girls were like their mother from whom Jenny had got her plump rounded, figure and Lily her golden hair aud violet eyes and delicate straight features. '.' Come, girls," said Sirs. Weston, as the black laudress with her face shining like ebony brought up a great pile of inowy whiteness hot from the iron, 'you must leave packing these things till afternoon, and get ready for dinner now, for you know how yourfather dis likes waiting. I do wish he would car ry an umbrella when the sun is so hot. 'm always afraid of bis getting sun- troke." This Is the last day of it mother, and before we get back the weather ill be cool. Aren't you glad we're go ig to-morrow. Think' of the White Mountains and Mount Desert and Ki- asara !" and Jennj- gave a little squeal f delight. Any letters, papa?" asked Lily, as Mr. Weston came into the parlor a few minutes later. "Here's one for your mother from James. I hope there's nothing amiss ith Fanny or the children." Mrs. cston opened iicr letter and read iloud : "Could you or one of the girls come to Fanny ? She has been in bed a eek witli what the doctor calls a bil ious intermittent fever, and though he assures me there's no present cause for alarm, he says perfect quiet is necessary, and that she can't get well while she lies iu bed worrying about the children aud servants, and they keep running to iier about every tritle. She needs some one to take care oil' her hands, and of course her sister ought to come, but she lias arranged to start for Newport to- lay witli a party of friends, and says lie can't possibly break up all their plans. How can she possibly go and leave Fanny is more than I can ttnder- tand; but perhaps' if she came she ouldn't be of much use as she thinks more of her own comfort than any thing else. Poor Fannie worries about poor little Jamie who is rather fretful ith his teetii and does not seem happy ith Ann.- Here was a disappointment for some body. Much talking and crying follow ed since each of the three contended that she was to be the one to give up the pleasant journey, but Jennie carried the day, appealing to her father to look at her mother and sister, who were both evidently needing mountain air and say if it wasn't simple common sense that she should go to Fanny ; she who was perfectly well, and strong enough for anything. Dear little thing! she did look radiant with health, energy and kindliness as she stood by her tall fa ther with her bright, eager face turned up to his. Of course Mrs. Weston and Lily pro tested against it, but Jenny was Inex orable and further settled the matter by writing a letter to James telling him to meet her at the station in Xew York the next morning. After dinner she proceeded to re-ar- auge the trunks, without a shade of ill-humor, separating from Lily's all her own pretty, new things. She held up a white muslin all puffings and loop- Ings and Valenciennes and cherry rib bons, saying as the did so", what n.pity it was that Lily couldn't wear her dres ses, for surely she wouldn't need this sort of thing while she was nursing poor Fanny. Her mother and sister declared that all their pleasure was gone, and they lionld not enjoy any thing without her but Jennie Insisted that would be treat- ng father very shabbily and after all she would go some time. Sho would make father take them all again next summer. The next morning Mr. Watson took her to the station, and put her Into the train an hour before the White Moun tain party was to start, and she nodded brightly to him from the window as the train moved oil', her sunny llico bearing no trace of disappointment at giving up her plans. Sho felt repaid when she saw James' pleasure at meeting her. Poor fellow! he looked quite worn out with his faint on as of ly cares, and .reported Fanny much weaker that morning. The streets were not attractive as they drove from the station to Forty-Severtth Street. Hie noonday sun was absolutely sickening, and Jenny was thankful when they reached their own particular "brown stone frout," and James unlocked the I door for her with a coutented, 'Well I've brought a treasure at last." Fanny had only been upstairs a week and Jenny marvelled to see what change had 'come over the usually pret ty homelike house for waut'of -the mis tress' eye and hand. The hall table was thick witli dust, the parlor carpet litter ed with fallen blossoms from withered bouquets in the vases, the piano all over dust, too, and the chairs awry, while the Gliding doors, opened into the din ing-room,- disclosed to view art untidy breakfast, table still standing, while swarms of flies, were rejoicing in the glaring sunlight which poured in through the unshaded windows. "It all looks, .forlorn enough," said James helplessly, "I don't know what's the reason. But come, I'll take you up to Fancy at once." And they mounted the stairs to' the second story front room where poor Fanny lay In bed, eagerly holding out two thin hands, with a smile of welcome on her pale face which went straight to Jenny's heart. '-' Here's a sight for sore eyes," said James triumphantly. "Xow, Fanny, we shall have everything going on well Shall I order any tiling for you f I must be going down town. I leave you iu good hands to-day," and James walked off, looking brighter than he had done since Fanny's illness. Jenny took off her things and got her self into a cool white morning dress as quickly as possible, and began to make Fanny more comfortable by setting her room to rights, while Fanny looked on well pleased at her dextrous way of dodging things, each quick, decided movement working wonders, and all without noise, so different from Bridget's shambling way of running backwards and forwards aud getting nothing done Between James and Bridget the room was In deplorable confusion, the dress ing table strewn with bottles, glasses, and spoons, and the contents of Fanny's jewel case scattered over several chairs, where they had been lcltby little Jamie that morning, when he had them to play with to appease his fearful howls aftera fall. Poor little fellow ! he was only a year and a half old, and sadly missed his mother's care, while blue-eyed baby Lily reigned supreme in the nursery and usurped his share of Ann's ser vices. "My dear, If you hadn't come to the rescue, all my things would have been destroyed," said Fanny. "The other day Bridget made a mustard plaster in one of my best embroidered pocket handkerchiefs, and when I found it out she said, "Sure the doctor told me to put it In fine muslin. This room needs weeping dreadfully, but I couldn't bear have it done this morning, for she moves that 1 only long to get out of the waj And, Jenny, won't you brush my air for me? Bridget makes my head ache so, and won't you see that the children are properly dressed when they ake up, and do go Into the kitchen aud see vfliat sort of dinner cook lias got up for, James and George," (George Leroy was Fanny's brother and James part ner, aud lived with them); "And, oh! Jenny the doctor said I was to have beef tea once in two hours, but I can't.take the stuff cook makes." Jenny didn't wonder as she saw' the uninviting greasy mess standing on the table. She put away the stray jewelry! hut and fastened a creaking blind hlch kept'letting in a. swaying ray of sunlight across the wall just opposite the bed, gathered the sticky glasses and poons and spoiled napkins together, and ran down stairs with them, coming back with a few bright verbenas she had found in the yard. These she arranged a little table, and then brushed and combed, Fanny's thick, light hair so gently, and with such magnetic lingers, that by the time she gotitbradedinto two long tails, Fanny was nearly asleep. Then leaving things In order, Jenny ran up stairs for a peep at her pets, whom she heard beginning to stir about, after their nap, in the nursery overhead. Dora, the eldest, was three years old, and rememoered Aunt Jen ny, and came gladly forward to be kissed and petted, but Jamie and the baby both "made strange" as the nurse said, and Jenny could only hope for a better acquaintance iu future, as Jamie hid his rosy face in Ann's skirts when ever she looked at him, and Lily pucker ed up her little mouth ominously when ever she tried to take her. She couldn't stay long with them, however, for Fanny's beef-tea was on her mind, and she went down to the kitchen to see about it. Fresh beef-tea, every one knows, can't be made in a minute, and meantime the doctor's or ders were not being carried out. Fan ny had had none that morning, and ought not to be left without it any longer., What was to lie done? Sud denly Jenny remembered the "extract beer' of "Sanitary commission" days aud writing down "the name on a slip of paper' sent the house maid to the near est chemist's in search of It. She came back in a few minutes with the little packet of queer looking, leathery, brown stuff, and In .an incredibly short time Jenny had a bit of It chipped up line, dissolve in boiling water and seasoned ith pepper and salt, and beheld with satisfaction a cup of smoking beef-tea guiltless of grease, which she triumph antly carried up stairs, Inwardly calling down blessings on the head of the man ho invented the extract. Poor Fanny could not have taken much If It had been nectar, for fever time was coining and Jenny was really darmcd as she saw the pale face getting crimson, felt the scorching heat of the hands, and she tried everything she could think of, without success, to alle- iate the racking headache aud dread ful restlessness. Sho seemed so very 111 that Jenny longed anxiously for the doctor's afternoon visit, and when he evidently thought her worse, for he looked grave as he said "More fever than yesterday," and added something about "typhoid symptoms," Jenny fol lowed him down stairs and asked If he thought there was any danger! "Xo immediate danger," said he, "but Mrs. Weston requires 'very great care, and must be kept perfectly quiet;" and he left Jenny feeling qnlle weighed down with responsibility. Mindful of the "coming man," how ever, she rang the parlor bell for Bridget er be I of to I and made her carry -away the withered flowers and bring the dust-pan and brush to the littered' carpet, while she told her about the dinner-table arrange ments in a few clear, simple words. Fanny had an irritable way of talkln, to her servants, constantly finding fault and giving confused orders which made a stupid, well-meaning person like Bridget unable to do anything right. while Jenny's sweet manlier was so re assuring and quieting- that people were always able to do their very best for her. The weary afternoon wore away at last, and precisely at C o'clock, as Jen ny was fanning her patient, she heard the latch-key in the front door and James and George's well-known voices, George was a tall, handsome man with great strength and splendid cour age, which had been well proved in the battles before Richmond, but so shy that Fauny used to say she believedhc would rather face a rebel battery than a room full 6f strangers. He was such-ado- mestic, home-loving fellow that James and Fanny, finding that he spent all his evenings at their house and seemed to be very homeless and forlorn at a hotel had proposed his coming to live with them, much to his comfort and satisfac tion. He was1 uncommonly fond of chil dren, and Fanny's little ones, adored "Uncle George," who had the sweetest temper In the world, and had never been known to be cross. He had plenty ol intellect and could say something worth hearing, provided he was with people he knew well and liked, but his shyness made him do himself injustice in so ciety; He thought Jenny the sweetest girl in the world and his favorite castle in the air was a pretty house of his own presided over by a bright, sunny-tem pered little wife with rosy cheeks, brown eyes and a saucy little turn up nose. But whether he would ever have the courage to tell her so was really a matter o doubt; for the more he thought it over, the more impossible it secerned to him that Jenny could ever like him well enough to say "yes ;" and I really think he would have been thankful iflikc the Parees witli their prayers, he could have deputed some one else to do It for him. Fanny has guessed his secret but wise ly kept her own counsel, only determin ug that, should matters ever go so far a3 to need one little friendly push to set them all right, tier's should be the hand to give It. Little did she think what was to be her part in George's love- making. Poor Fanny! The long list of her noble qualities did not include cither patience or self-control, and as the weary days went by and the novelty of Jenny's presence wore off, she began to find fault even with her favorite sister- in-law, aud although, If she had been asked, she would have said that there never was such a dear good nurse, she yet scolded at everything she did in a way that was very hard to bear. Fortunately for her, Jenny's patience was inexhaustible, and she was a gen erous sold who would have scorned the meanness of losing temper with a sick person or a child. But if patience nev flagged, strength sometimes did, and week of days of incessant activity and nights of broken rest had made her look much palcr'and thinner. It was a sultry morning, and she had just finished getting Fanny ready for the doctor's visit, and was putting away some things, when, in some unaccount able way, she let fall a goblet on the hearth with a loud crash. " Jenny, I can't think how you can so awkward!'' burst outFanny,star tled by the. noise. "I declare, you are just as bad as Bridget. I do wisli you would go away and let me have some quiet." It was the feather that broke the camel's back, and poor Jenny, who had been up two nights, burst into tears. Xone of the Westons had been brought up on a "system of weeps,"and mortified and ashamed, Jenny hurried out of the room, muttering something about "back In a minute," and rushing past her own room, which was in the chaos of "sweeping day," she flew down stairs into the cool, darkened parlor, and throwing herself into a corner of the sofa, sobbing as If her heart would break. Her violent efforts to stop cry ing seemed all of no avail, and she was horrified at the thought of the doctor's coming and finding Fanny excited by her absurd behavior. " A pretty nurse, indeed," said she to herself. "What would mother say to this? But at any rate George and James were out of the way." There she lay, poor little thing, witli her hands over her face and her head hidden iu a great soft sofa-pillow, only one crimson ear and the shining brown braids visible, and the pretty shoulders heaving with sobs. What was that little ear about that it gave Its owner no warning of a foot step, and she thought herself all alone until, oh horor! George's voice sounded close at hand, saying, with the deepest concern, "Why, Jennie, what has hap pened ? Is any tiling dreadful the mat ter? Xo bad news Irom the travelers, hope. .Can't I do anything foryou?" Can any body explain why Jenny cared as much for what George thought her that, of all the people in the world he was the last whom she wished sec at that particular moment? Hys terical, fanciful, nervous, she knew he would think her just what she hated most. And there was no escape, for turning ever so little on the pillow, she saw with one eye, the tall figure close beside her, the fine face full of the ten derest anxiety. " Oil George," she faltered, "you will despise me, you will think me a perfect fool. Xo, nothing dreadful is the mat ter, only Fauny was a little cross and I was so tired." And the sobs came on again worse than ever, mingled with a disparlng, "Oh do go away I am so ashamed 1 thought you had gone out." Instead of complying with tills re quest, George drew up a chair close to the sofa, and, sitting down close by the heap qf frilled cambric, said in a sweet, solemn, tender voice:' "Despise you? Jenny, I love you better than all the world liesides, and If you could care for me to marry me, I should be the happi est man living. Will you try?" Oh, potent remedy! stronger than all the sal volatilo or valerian In all the chemists' shops' In Xew York! As lie waited the sobs ceased, one plump, dim pled hand stole into his, and from the depths of the velvet cushion, a soft lit tle "yes" rose to his listening car. at an by nn if Is tie It; a We leave our readers to imagine the talk that followed.

So much for the statement that "the rest of the dcbt,"f.e., all except the $200,000,000 refunded at 5 per cent., bears G per cent interest. It is a matter of surprise that any journal setting the slightest value on its reputation for accuracy should couiu.ii.use.1 ion siateiiient prooaoiy at variance wiui iacts mat. are so wen to the entire public. Tlie statement that the Administra- tion cannot now borrow at less than per cent, is equally unwarranted. It Is that the negotiation of the new loan, with the proceeds of which the present per cent, bonus were to ne taken up, was temporarily interrupted, owing to our uiiiicuuies w in ureal xsntani ; out these are now substantially settled, and U1C jlJllMUUJUg C11U Ul 1 11C ill U1L1U11UU 1 Geneva will soon remove the last ves tige of the distrust to which the Ala bama trouble gave rise. The circum stances will then be as favorable as could lie wished for throwing our new bonds again into the market; and with the bright prospect of prolonged peace aud increasing material prosperity Inch is now before us, we have the best reasons for believing that the loan ill be rapidly taken. This expectation so confidently entertained by the ofli- cers of the Treasury Department that effort will undoubtedly be made ithiu three or four months to put not only the new 3 per cents., but also the , per cent, bonds, upon the market. The power of the Government to bor- row a small fraction over 5 per cent, even iu this country, where the rates of nterestare in frcneral much hhrher than in Europe, is sulticiently indicated the prices of our present bonds in the Xew York market. Thus on Au- ust 10 the Ten-forty 3 per cents sold in ew York at a rate so slisrhtlv below :ir in gold as to yield to Investors only t0 fraction over 5W per cent, on their actual cost, and during the last six of 1871 the same bonds sold at tr average rate which would yield only trifle over Sij per cent., (more exactly 14 100). The critical character of our relations with Great Britain caused slight depression in the Drice. durins the spring and early summer, but the tendency is now agaiu upward as to price, Involving a corresponding fall in the realized rate of interest. a.i r .m.i prc-spects it is not too much to say that they will grow brighter and brighter as the'ehancesof therr,'6.me candidate fnrth Tei.i0.,. on. n t smaller.
