I "Look, mamma, its leaves are beginning to unfold, and will he entirely opened by New j Year's night, to that 1 can wear it to Helen I party "and Enna lilted her fair, eager face j from the (lower whose snowy petals were just breaking through their sheatl rf green. I That winter rose bush was a gift from En-. na's father, ant it wus his last one. No won- j der tho child loved it. -Yes, darling, you shall wear it, twined right herein this hunch ol curls." and the small Snger.1 iftcd the bright tresses tender-; lv from Enna's forehead while the mothers pensive features reflected somewhat of the light in her child's. Every .lay, every hour, Enna watched it as .miser watches hi gold. Every day the. large creamy-looking petals curled outwards, and lay it. exquisite contrast with the world of green leaves amid which the flower's beau tiful life was opening. "Do you waut to come in and see my rose,, little boy! ' Enna was reluming from school that after-. noon when her eyes fire t rested upon the j child He was stand. ng before the window in whose embrasure her mother had placed the exollc, tl.at the pale winter sunbeams might grant it a briel visit. The boy. large mournful eyes were fastened eagerly on the Urge blossom, for it was now only two days before New Year's. His clothes were great ly worn, and patched with many colors, hut Enna did not mind that. she only saw the .B(,er light in those large brown eyes, s 'Then you love flowers, do you, my child! ..id Enna's molher in her soli tones, as th. y ll ihree stood oefore the plant "O' yes, ma'am; but not so Will as Mary does I was ihi king when I stood out there on the pavement, looking at it, if Mary could KL . on y it!" . , . ..Who is Mary!

"Do you mean it, ma'am! do you rcnlly mean that I shall t k this to Mary!" ques tioned the child, while his deep eyes grew ra diant vvith jov, r Mr. Willis pluced the pre cious branch in his hand. "Oh! how glad she will be." and the thought of his sircr's great delight, the little heart gave way, and the tears dashed over the boy's brown lashes. It was New Year's night. Very beautifu! looked Enna Willis in her pink dress and shining hair, amid which her mother's taste ful lingers had twined a few green leaves, m .ha put up her little ripe lip. for a parting kiss, before she started for her schoolmate's soiree. , M At that moment the door opened, and the little stranger boy entered. His face W). very white, a. he glided up to Mr.. Willis, nnd Buiri, "Mary is dying, and she has sent for tho little girl who gave her tho white rose. Please, ma'am, may she come, and will you come with her!" "I've brought them, Mary, I'vo brought them," cried the boy eagerly , n he ushered liia guests into the chamber, where the light flickered with a strange, wan smile over the bitre walls and the old chairs. A pale, woman tottered forward, and led the'rs, toward a low bed in one corner. The sick child lifted her head. It was a very beautiful one, with its lirown hair, nnd blue ryes, but the death chill was in it. "Come nearer " she eai.l faintly, 'Tor somehow my eyes are grow ing blind," nnd the little cold fingers closed round Enna's. "I held it all day, and at night I went to sleep with it In my hands. Yesterday the leaves dropped away, but an angel came to me and said, 'Don't cry fur the rose, Mary. In a little whilo you shall come with mo, and gather fairer ones. Oh, 1 see iheni! I see them!'" and the light Bnrged once more into those blue eyoe, and lighted up Ihe rigid features with exceeding glory. " They are growing there, thousands and thousands of litem by a great shining river, and the angel stands there, niid itswhiie robe flows in great (hilling billows to ils feet. Molher, Charley, guud-bye. Little girl, for that while rose you gave me, I will weave you a crown of those that blossom up there.

We heard at jjatsra&ting -anecdote, th? other day, ol Gen. Hariisuii, whlcnwe have never seen in print. During the political campaign, which ter minated in the election of Gen. Hurrison, a crrtain well known Democratic editor visited I, in girder to ad Ires; a political meeting there. Upon his arrival lie was surrounded by the friend of the faith, and soon found himself warmly discussing the principles of the old Democracy. After convincing his irienils of the ruin in which the Whigs were attempting to involve the country, nnd the nil sav ng power of the Democraiy, he com menced a tirade upon the private character uf Gen. Hnrri.onj he I ad nut proceeded lar in this sirain, however, before he wes con fronted by a tall, raw-boned pioneer with 'Look here, stranger, if you mean to say that General Harrison is any thing less thin a gentleman, you're o villain and a liar!" The editor stopped short looked around ill surprise perhaps he exoected to see the bold insuller annlbtleted. The pioneer con tinued: "I'm n Democrat; but I don't allow any demagogue to speak disparagingly of General Harrison in my presence." "Oh, you're excited, my friend," remarked the editor, coolly. "I'm not excited; but I owe my home to Generul Harrison, und when any man abuses him in my presence, he's got to fight. If you want to know why, I'll just tell you. When I came out west, I squalled on an eighty acre bit of land I had no inon-y and whenever I got a job of work which would bring me a liitle cash, I pitched in, and procured my hard earned money and laid it up. Thus I worked for a long while, saving all the silver I came across I believe I'd sooner have starved that spent any of the 'hard' till at length I luOcteded in .mailing enough to pay for my eighty ucres. When I'd curned the last cent, I started early ono morning, with a knapsack of food on my back, and my cash in my pocket, and taking the Indian truil, made lor Cincinnati, where the land of fice was then situated. When I got there and counted out my mony, the land .gent told me that one uf my dollars was spuriom. This troubled me. I didn't know what to do. A dollur was a mighty big sum wiih me, and I hadn't another cent In the world hesid I'd come a mighty long way on foot, and it seemed hard to have to go home with out my laud. While I stood there talking to the agent in came the General, who, upon finding out what the tumble was, gave me the ex. ra dollar, and invited me to stop at North Hend that night, on my re'urn home. I look him at nis word and stopped, telling Mrs Harrison that the General had invited me :o take up my lodgings there thai night, aid I had no. been there long before the General himself came in; he welcomed nw, land I slept there that night. When I wa ' about to start the next morning, the General, ' Bhowmg me a ma-e, told me he hadn't a bri dle or halter to give me, but if I'd get the mare h. rr.e I might have her. He no sooner said thi than I cut to the woods, stripped tome young paw-paw turk. made a halter ol it, returned and ciught nw mare, and wenl home leeliog richer than a king. Prior u this I hfjko st ick on my farm. Nov, gen tlemen, Kvn't I right to defend "Gen. Harri son!" Then turning to the editor, "Am you, puppy, you, if you repeal anything dero gulory to the character of my benefactor, m&6h every bone in your body." ! The editor wa. not inclined to doubt the sincerity of the pioneer, and very prudently took good care to leave off his tirade against the personal character of General Harrison. Cofnerrt)t7e Times. Fatal Effect of Slander. Within the past week our town hns been I the aceno of one of the most fatal effects of ; slander that we rememburever to have heard of. ' A few months ago a wiJow lady, with a ! large lamily of daughters, a!l young, intelli gent, and interesting, look up her abode a mong ih, in'ome gf the best quarter, ol the town. Her reputation was without blemish; yet in some way (how has not yet been as certsined) s Ajdanderous report was put in circulation tettrfliif g her character und that of her family. Every intelligent and right minded persons, to whose ears this report came who knew the family, united in de- nouncing It as false. No one believed it, or ; pretended to believe it. Yet false as it was, It continued to go, and every lew days it wasj brought back to the unfortunate lady whul ; wss its victim. To add to her distress, three j J sttempts were made to fire her residence. j These facts so preyed upon her mind as to confine her to her bed. The efforts ol her j friends to rally her, by assurances that no j body believed ihe slenderuus reports; and to j diveu her mind from the circumstance were, Ivain. The subject continued to prey upon J her mind, and she continued to grow con stantly nurse, until last Friday, when she ) died. j The physicians who rttended her say, un-J hesitatingly, that shelied of no bodily cr.in ' plainl her disease being entirely mental,' I effeciii g her nervous syslein, and producing ! death. Her death is, therefore, literally and truly ! attributable to the foul breath of calumny. : !

And now fo thr proof. Article 8, Sec tion 7, of the constitution, is as follows: "'The faith of the State being pledged for the payment of its public debt, in order to provide thprefor, there shall be created a sinking fund which shall Be sufficient to pay th6 sccruing interest on such debt, and anmtr ally to reduce the principal thereof by a sum not less than one hundred thousand dollars, increased yearly, ond, every year, by com pounding, at the rate of six per cent, per an num. The .aid sinking fund shall consist ol the net annual income of the public works and slocks owned by the State, of any other (unds or resources thai are, or imy be pro vided by law, and of bucIi further sum, to he raUed by taxation, as may be required for the purp ise aforesaid.', "With this section of the Constitution we have no quarrel. We approve of it; and so we believe, do the enlirj people of the State. By its operation, in conjunction with another clause in the same instrument, prohibiting tho contracting of any further State de'n, the credit of the Stite is placed on an im pregnable foundation, and if the minimum fixed by it were not foolishly and recklessly j overleaped, it would secure the extinguish-! mentoflhe entire redeemib'e debt of the ! Stale within a reasonable period, and, by a process so gradual as to be scarcely ft It the increase of payments each year just fairly keeping pace with the increase of the public Wealth. This, evidently, is what the framers, o! that instrument designed, unJ this is what 1 ihe State adiuinstration, as we shall see, has, with idiotic fatuity, disregarded. The new const'tulion took effect the flrEt day of S ptemlier, 1351, and in t le ; ear 1 802 therefore, was the first year over which the abbVi quoted Constitutional provision, in ref erence to taxation for the jiurpo-eofa sinking fund, would be extended, ll then the State Administration had done whit the constitu tion required ii to do towards raising fun Is, 1 to he paid on the principal of the State debt, j and h id tloppcd th're, there would have been, and would be raised by taxa'iun for that pur pose: In the year 18jS, $100,000 00 " WSS, 106.000 00 ' IdM, 1 12.360 00 '!

And now by reference lo the last report of Mr. Morgtn, Auditor of State, covering the year 1854, pige six, we find thai there was levied that year for this pur pose titf sum of 698 300,32. being 8136, 000,32 more than the consiitution required for that year! nnd'being $SJU,48 more than the constitution requires in the six years from 1861! to 1857, boih inclusive. Thus throwing on oie year more than the proper and constitutional burden of six veers; crush ing labor and business under its enormous weight; keeping desirable emigrants from the cast from settling nmong us, and driving large numbers of our most thrifty people to the far west to escape the intolerable exic tion! What wisdom! Whi t Statesmanship! And pruy, Jlessrs. Morgan, Medill &. Co., was this done by the local authorities! Are the muncipalltill reponsible for ihis wholly unneces.-ary Stall tax of more than hull' a million for last year! And what excuse is there tor the imposi tion of this sixfold burden on a single year? Does tho credit of the State require it! By no means. On :he contrary, an 1 so far Iroin speedy payment being desired or desirable by the public creditor, we find that ihe longer our hon Is have to run the higher is the price they bear in ni.n ket; in proof of which we refer to th' sale of stocks reported in the New Y ork Bvtjisg Post of the 31st. of July list; in which it appears that, on that day, Ohio six per cent, stock-., falling due in 1880, sold at a premium uf 5 per cent., while Ohio six per cerTyd.ie in 1S75, sold at a premium ol Ml per cent. The rate of interest and the certainty of payment are not the only elements that enter into the value of stocks in the eyes of capitalists; they desire something of permanence and durability in their invest ment also; and hence we see they were will ing to give six cents on the dollar more fcr itnck bearing the aame rate of interest, simp ly because it had filteen years longer to run."
