fJovenumuit Salaries in lUiutand.
The London rorrosiiondciit of 1 he New
York Times gives some inle'ie-wliutr in
formation in regard to Hit (loverjinu nl
naiades paid in England. It beoni

These are only a few of them, for
the re' a re. nearly a thousand persons at
tached to the loyal household, and paid
for roiulerinir some real, b'tt mostly
imaginary, services to Her Majesty, as
usual, those who do most get'lhe le ist
pay.
The members of the Cabinet, for the
most part, work for their money. The
Lord Chancellor has the largest plum

pension to follow. Mr. (Jladstono, Mr.

$20,000; Marquis of Jlartington, $12,r)0();
Karl DeGrev, Karl Kimberly, Mr.
Hrightand Mr. (Josehen, $10,000. What
seems to nic the hardest thing in Kng
land is the very small pay given to some
who wo.tk hard, and the great sums
squandered on idlers. There are semes
ot pqisons in the pay of the Foreign
Olllco, at high salaries, who have not
done a day's service in 20 years. One
man, who has received $270,000, has not
been consulted since 18(34 ; another,who
has lived in absolute idleness for 41
years, has received $150,000. There are
numerous cases of this kind. A-man,
ever so clever and useful, is set aside by
some Foreign Secretary, perhaps for a
relative or favorite of his own, and goes
upon the retired list when 30 years old,
and lives till SO, receiving from $."5,090

very hard and starve a little at limes to

One of the most skillful forgeries that
ever occum-d in Xew York City was
perpetrated upon the Bank of t'.ie State
of New York on Monday afternoon. It
win evidently planned and executed by
men who were well verod in the mode
of doing banking business in . ogue in
the great firm of Jay Cooke & Co. The
following are the circumstances as rela
ted by the New York papers : " The
forged checks were live in num'jor, the
highest calling for $9,000 and the lowest
for $900, the aggregate being $20,000,
and wcro executed on perfect fac simile
copies of the check forms used by the
firm. They were presented at the Hank
and at once paid, all the signatures be
ing such perfect forgeries that none but
one perfectly familiar with the sign
manual of tho .supposed signer could
detect them. Tho skill and knowledge
of the forgers were more clearly shown,
however, in their perfect adheivnco to
the rules which govern tho linn of .lay
Cooke & Co., as well a those in force
at tho bank. Jay Cooke & Co., have
four or five cashiers, whoho duty it is to
indorse cheeks healing the firm signa
ture over to tho person to whom tho
money is to paid. Thus, if a cheek
bearing the signatuie of the firm should
bo presented at tho bank, without tho
indorsement of tho cashier, it would
not be paid. To successfully carry out
their plan, therefore, tho forgers made a
trlplo forgery, first signing the name of
the firm, then the indorsement to the
holder, and, to make assurance doubly
sure, appended another signature of tho
cashior of rach cheek, identifying the
holder. This last precaution was taken
because it is a custom of the firm to ar
range with their bank never to cash a
check for over $5,000 unless tho holder
is identified. As the teller saw the
cashier's identification of the holder on
each of tho checks, lie entertained no
doubt of their genuineness, and pioba
bly supposed that tho holder was a stran
ger in the city. The employes of Jay
Cooke & Co., pronouuea tho forged sig
natures to be aim Mt perfect fac similes
of tho original, and devoid of that still
ness which generally characterize for

Sunday f. ave us the greatest
snowstorm of (he seaon, and during a
goodshar-of (he day it "came down
beautifully." lint before noon yester
day there was no snow to be s-ecn, the
birds were on tho wing, and the sun
made the earth pleasant with a ologetic
smiles. At noon tho Senate convened,
in obedience to the proclamation of the
President, and you will see the long
list of nominations submitted for its ac
tion, before you see my letter. Mont
pelier, it seems, is to have a new Tost
Master lint the places are few where
changes will be made, if Gen. Grant ad
heres to his resolution not to disturb
good Ilepuhlicans without some guater
caii'-o than the insane desire for rotation
wlwch some have. By the way, 1 may
mention that another Vermonte- is like
ly to go by the board, it is thought by
many even his friends. 1 refer to the
present Commissioner of Patents, Mr.
Foote. Several names arc mentioned
for his place, but no paper has hit upon
(lie really probable one, so far as 1 have
seen. Mr. Footo's successor is likely to
be a relative of a distinguished General.
But (his is sub vosu. Whenever the
President nominates, you will notice
that he will he endorsed by the Chroni
cle as the best man out, and " entirely
satisfactory to al."
Perhaps your readers would like a
paragraph of fcandal. You know, or
have heard, perhaps I should say, " the
course of tiue love never did run
smooth." Tho truth of this is some
times illustrated in "Washington. A
neat little store in town, presided over
for a long time by a couple supposed to
be man and wife, has had its harmony
disturbed. Tho neat and modest-looking
female of the establishment found a
letter in the side coat pocket of her
loid, fiom another feminine person, of
Philadelphia, which spoke of tlu ap
proaching nuptials of the sender and
receiver. Whew! " Hell hath no fury
like a woman scorned." in a short
time after the letter was read by tho
wrong person, the one to whom it was
addressed could not truthfully sing
" There's a light in the window for
thee;" for every "light" in his windows
was smashed, and the show-eases in his
store also. Tho brevet wife was spunky.
She " broke up," and left. I5ul she on
ly crossed the street, opened a store in
opposition to her late lamenting lover,
on her own hook, an 1 commenced di
plomatic correspondence with tho wo
man who was to have been unceremo
niously her successor. There was the
spiciest of spice in some of those letters.
The Philadelphia fiance asked, for in
stance, in one, how much allowance the
Barbc B'cu apportioned to the " de
parted," that she might know what to
expect in case of extremity. 1 fear that
tho quiet end of this tempest in a store,
will find tho unhapy negotiation among
women established in most miserable
single blessedness, with a well organized
opposition to his business of trade, sus
tained by a good many firm lovers, and
such as like to see men exhibit some
soul, even in their sins. In this ease,
for once women ai o on the hide of tho
woman.
But to make a Mindwieh of this letter
let mo return to politics, or something
akin to it. A movement has commenced
in the departments here, which sends a
great many people home, especially
those of Democratic faith. About one
hundred and fifty will leave the Treas
ury .his mouth. One man who has
been in that department fifty years, and
came hero with it from Philadelphia,
will bo retired not on account of poli
tics, however. Tho great rotary lnu
chino is in motion, and the admirers
of "my policy will have to live upon
their admiration and efforts elsewhere.
Yours ever,

The I3osom Friends,
nv m.iZAinrni ('.mimii:i,i
iMabel Clarendon and Julia Mont
gomery had been friends from early
childhood. They were each only
daughters of wealthy parents; but the
great financial crisis of 10 years ago had
reduced them to comparative poverty,
and had left bot'i orphan. From the
wreck of their fortunes, inch secured a
trille; and in their trouble, being drawn
closer together than ever, they vowed
eternal friendship, called each other
"sister," put their scanty fortunes into
one common purse, and found that with
great economy and the proper manage
ment of the talents which Heaven had
given them, they could e-c.ipe thogiw-p
of poverty.
Mabel's speciality was music, to
which accomplishment she added draw
ing and Fivneh. Julia's chief accom
plishments were athoroiiirh knowledge
of German and Italian, and the art of
making wax (lowers ol a delicacy and
beauty such as was absolutely marvel
otis.
These gentlewomen did not lack pu
pils; It was a very tine thing for scores
ot comparatively rieli women to boast
mat their daughters were being finish
ed in (lie matter of education by the
once rich, fadiiouable and well-known
Miss Clarendon and Miss Mantgom
cry.
Alter thro yea in ol industry and
economy, these young ladies felt that
Miey could allord to maKo e.ich other a
gifl of the whole summer time, and
enjoy it in their own way. This female
Damon and Pythias took up their mode
in a pretty cottage, close by tho sea; and
there, wnh the assistance ol a little
French maid, who had clung to Julia
thromih all ihe change of fortune, they
dwelt in the nio-t charming manner.
The first two months of this delisrht
fill retirement passed as pleasantly as
faiiy life in a tale1. But one d iv in the
lir-t week of July, the wicke i genius of
the lairy stones lound out this little
paradise. His name was Victor Lan
sing, and he was handsome as an Apol
lo. But Julia and Mabel were heart-free.
In thoirdnys of wealth and fashion they
had merely danced and flirted witli their
male friends, like others of their class ;
ami since then opportunity had never
tempted either of them to lose their
hearts. Now it was different: thev
were unemployed, and a chance ac
quaintance soon deepened into some-
ti ing more serious.
Julia gave up her whole mind to the
admiration ol victor Lansing's wonder
fill blonde beauty, rendered still more
remarKaUlo hy tho pallor ot recent ill
ness: and she discovered that blue eyes
in a man were even more attr.ctive
than in a woman. In slio.it, she loved
lor the nrst aim only lime in her hie.
"With Mabel, admiration and kindly
regard were at first the only feelings
she entertained lor her newtriend : and
she occupied the position of a quiet
I ;oKcr on more than an active party in
the trio.
As for Mr. Lansing, if ho had any tic
cided preference at hrst, it appeared to
be for Miss Montgomery. Julia was a
woman to enp.ivate a man's fancy, and
to engage his profounder attention, and
fix it too ; and for tho first time, she
exerted hei'selt to win a man's heart.
Perhaps if she had exerted herself less
her Hi.cccss had been better; although
the oDject oi nor attentions oiten ques
tioned himself, seriously, as to whether
she hud not conquered. That he found
.) una lafcinatingandatmostirresistiule.
ho could not deny; although ho thought
Aland tho more ueaulilul ol the two
Often he smiled to himself to thinkthat
he could not decide with which of the
two he was in love.
"Nonsense!" he declared to himself
at last. "I love neither of these lovely
women, or else by this timo E should
have found out which it was. I've had
enough of sea-bathing and solitude. I
shall go home."
But that evening, when Lansing
called to hid his menus adieu, lie sud
denly discovered Mabel to bo unusually
brilliant in conversation ; so thnt ho for
got the object ol lus visit, and thought
no more of going homo for several
weeks.
"Certainly 1 love Mabel Clarendon."
he thought, as ho walked slowly and
modiiauveiy toward the little country
hotel whore he was staying. "She is
the most beautiful girl I oversaw ; and
quite as accomplished and brilliant us
.Miss Montgomery, more modest, too,
for she never makes any display ol her
accomplishments. Not that Julia does
so either. She has too much taste; but
r.iw ..,.....:..... c ii.. . i. ... i
wiucumiivra jiui le-uuy ie uiilKC one itjei
what a superior creature she is."
After Victor had loft them, Julia took
up her candle and loft tho room with
out a word, Sho di.l not know that she
had neglected to say '' good-night"
nor mind was too thorougly pro-occupied.
The first pang of jealousy had
torn her heart when sho perceived
Lansing's devotion to her fi-mml, and
tho storm thus raised within her breast
had frightJiied her. Sho dared not un
derstand her own feelings, and sho res
olutely forbade herself to think of
Mabel at all in connection with them;
that was why she forgot her. Alone,
in the silence of her own room, bIio
placed both hands over her throbbing,
tortured heart; hut ail her efforts could
not repress the groan that huist fiom
her lips.
" If Victor Lansing does not love mo,"
she thought, " I shall die. Well, if I
must die, I shall try to die quietly and
show no sign."
Mechanically she prepared for bed,
put out the light, and closed her heavy
eyelids; but ail that ii'ght she never
slept for one instant.
Next morning, at the breakfast-table,
Mabel observed and could not refrain
from remarking Julia's deathlike pal
lor. Sho kissed her tendorly, and an
ticipated every wish ; but Julia turned
away with a sick heart, and shuddered
at her touch. Mabel understood but
did not resent this conduct.
"Sho loves Victor," she thought
magnanimously; " and I do not. Yes,
I will school my heart to look upon him
as my best friend's husband, and us my
brother, beforo it is too late. 1 think
fhopo Victor loves Julia."
With this idea first in her thoughts,
Mabel retired into tho background;
and on the few occasions wlion acsident
loft her nud Lansing in each other's sc.
clety, sho occupied every minute of tho
tlmo in praises of Julia.
But this did not piovo tho way to ob
literate tho impression she had already
made upon him. Willie Julia exulted
. in once more possessing his undivided
attention, ictor was admiring the pure
unselfis-hness of Mabel's conduct: ai d
repeating again and again, " What a
truly noble nature! Hers is indeed a
heart of gold. I lovelier."
Week after week iiascd oi. : and at
Ivngth Victor announce 1 his intention
of leaving tho seaside, and return ng t
his homo and his duties. His health
j was thoroughly roo-tablishod ; and ill
' though a man of wealth and position,
he had loo much intellect to waste his
time in a life of elegant leisure. lie
i wai a barrister, a ;d longed to be back
again among Ins books and papeis.
; Hut still he did not go.
The holiday of the two frl.-n.l i was
also drawing (o a close ; and, indeed, it
became necessary for one or the other to
return to town at once; ami it was fi
nal y decided that Miss Cl.iredon should
go first, o attend to the gathering to
gether of the seho 1, while Miss Mont
gomery remained lop:i"!c up and super
intend the ivnoval of certain article-"
from (heir summer retreat.
In the mean time Mabel's elforts t
1 roinole the love aflair of her frien 1,
and lender herself indilforcnt on thi j-ub-ject
of Victor Lansing, had resulted
'disastrously for t!;e whole party. Julia,
confident t lint she had won Victor,
gave up her whole heart and soul to the
entrancing occupation of idolizing him.
Victor no longer in doubt as to the state
of his feelings, knew that he adoied
Miss Clarendon ; while poor Mabel, from
her constant schemes to nv id Lansing
and throw him into Julia's socrhty, con
tracted such a habit of thinking of him
that at last she could i.o nothing else,
iMid discovered witli dismay that she
was hopelessly, irretrievably in love
with hi. n herself.
Hut Mabel was capable of heroic self
sacrifice ; and she hailed with delight
the urgent business which called her to
Loudon and her duties. Tho friends
parted, tenderly promising each other
the pleasure of meeting again in a few
days; an 1 Julia blessed the absence of
Mabel; " for now," she thought, " Vic
tor must spcaK."
And Victor did speak, hut in a totally
unlooked-for manner.
On tho day following Mabel's depar
ture, he called on Julia: and his bur
ried and absent manner bcln.yed the
agitation of his feelings. He carried a
traveling bag, in his hand, and announ
eed that he was on his way to catch the
first train tor town. Could he execute
any commands for Miss Montgomery?
"No," Julia thanked him, " noth
ing ;" aim nor voice was scarcely audi
blc.
" Could she favor him witli Miss Glar
ondon's address?" Victor asked : and
Julia gave it with a dreadful sinking of
tho heart ; and then, as in a dream, she
heard a great niany.cordial expressions
ot t.acndly regard, u kin 1 " goou-by,"
and sho was alone.
She sat quite still for a long time, just
wnere no icit ner; sue neither moved
nor spoke; she scarcely breathed, till at
last a long sigli escaped her lips, and she
nuittorcd drearily, I thought l would
die if it ever came to this: but Heaven
help me! I live, and am likelv to live.
Oil ! why mn I so young nnd so strong
that i cannot., cannot die .'"
But this state of feeing passed awav :
and, instead of the despair which at first
almost benumbed tho sense ot pain he
loll, a uurningjealousy tool; possession
of her, an insatiable desire to be with
her rival, to watch the conduct of the
man sho loved, and to place some eter
nal barrier between both As soon done
as thought. On tho following day.
Julia was in th school-room again, and
taiKiiig over with .Mabel the arrival ol
new scholars and tho loss of old ones,
while her heart beat loudly at the sound
of every step that approached the door.
She hail not long to wait. Toward
evening Victor Lansing called: and ex
cept a few commonplace remarks to
j una, which stung her more than utter
neglect would have done, ho devoted
himself entirely to Mabel.
Julia's heart was on fire. In that one
evening the friendship of years cruni
bled away in an hour, beneath the de
vouring jealousy that racked her inmost
soul. Jicr whole nature seemed chang
ed ; and while she watched every look
and movement of tho lovers with a
calm, unrufiled fac, in her heart she
cursed and hated both, nnd tortured her
brain with schemes to accomplish their
misery and overthrow.
It would be tedious to dwell upon this
painful time. Day by day Victor be
came more deeply attached to Mabel ;
and day by day the fiend within Miss
Montgomery's bosom became more un-
munagoablo.althcuhshostill maint lii.-
eu an outward femoianco ol unbroken
serenity. But Mabel noted tho light in
her great dark eves, grown so large and
wicrd-looking, and trembled at the
thought of standing toward her in the
light of a rival. So well did Mabel com
mand her feelings that Mabel's iears
wore lulled, and she even doubled, at
times, whether her friend had ever loved
Victor at all, and so allowed herself more
and more to become absorbed in her own
love lor him.
One night, after Victor Lansing ha.l
gone, Mabel went softly to Julia s room.
and seated herself on a low ottoman at
her loot, while sho endeavored to calm
her fluttering heart sufficiently to make
the avowal that had brought her there.
Tho flickering lire cast a ruddy glow
through the room, making of tho two
beautiful women who sat. half in the
shade and half touched by its bright
light, a picturo which Rein'brant would
have loved to paint. " Julia," said Ma
bel, at last, " l have something to tell
you ! "
Julia's great dark eyes flashed like
living coals. Already she know what
was coming; hut she only placed her
cold and trembling baud lightly on tho
shining colls of MaLcl's hair. Tho un
suspecting girl shuddered at that touch
without knowing why ; and after a mo
ment's hesitation went on hurriedly,
" You have seen, perhaps, Julia, that
Victor loves me. We aro engaged in a
few days I shall bo his wife ! "
A terriblo sound, that was neither a
groan, a cry, nor an artificial word,
burst from Julia Montgomery. Sho
wreathed her hand In tho long black
hair of her companion, and dragging
lior backward, quick us lightning indict
ed a deadly blow upon her white bosom
with some long, sharp luiilo that had
lain on tho table beside her. A pierc
ing shriek broke from tho wounded
girl ; nnd, struggling from the grasp of
noi companion, sue tried to rush from
the room, but fell insonsiblo across the
threshold. Cries of mini, demoniac
laughter hurst from the lips of Julia
Montgomery, nnd when Barballe nnd
the assistant servant rushed Into the
room, a ghastly and appa llngslghl met
fielr view.
In a confused heap In one comer, with
hair disheveled, livid face, and glitter
ing eyes, Julia Montgomery sat grin
ning, and ever and anon emitting fear
ful csics, a hopeless and incurable mad
woman. Their screams soon brought
help, and the maniac was with difficul
ty secured, nnd I ornesbrieking from the
, room.
The unfortunate Mabel was, at first
thorght to be dead; but hoi timely
swoop had saved her life. Tho wound
though deep and d ngcn.us, was not
fatal; and her falling insensible had
prevented much loss of blood. Hut
weeks of patient watching went by be
fore she was pronounced out of danger;
and to her dying day she will bear the
, scar of the wound that nearly cost her
l her life. But in the love a'nd tender
, ncss of her liusb.iud, she had almost
forgotten that terrible episode in her
existence, and lr ng ago forgiven the un
, fortunate who still leads a wasted, ruln
l ed life within thestrong wallsof a mad
, house.

They dressed themselves, gathered the
children, and Hod to the woods, leavijig
the savages to finish plundering tho
house.
In another place a woman had the
boldness to unbraid them for distressing
helpless women and children, telling
them that if they had the spirit and
soul of warriors, they would cross the
river and fight the men at the fort. The
Indians lore it very patiently, cnlj
saying: "Squaw must not say too
much."
They entered I! e house of Mis. K., a
woman very untidy in her peisonal
appearance They seized her,and de
spite her screams ot terror, carried her
to the creek near by, and gave her a
thorough ablut on, warning her that
if they even caught her so filthy again
they would kill her !
Another woman, having her young
son taken a.vay with other little' boys,
followed the Indians with her other
children, and entreated them to give up
her little boy, which they did. She
then interceded (brothers, and succeed

in a fit of good humor, offered to carry
her over the river on his back. Sho
accepted his proposal, and the savage
gallant carried her saf ly over, through

soon returned with her little band of
