The speaker was a middle aged geu tlcmen, Mr. Morton, who was rapidly writing the address on sonic letters. The one waiting was a clerk in the establishment of Morton ?fc Co., Tre? mont street, corner of Dover, Boston. 'It is necessary for these to be mailed to-night to go in the iirst train to P. in the morning. There in a samall amount of money in one of them. It ought to be sent to the P. office, I suppose, but it is too late, and I guess it will be safe enough to mail it In a box.' 'Yes, sir.'and the quick-motioned. handsome youth of nineteen went to the nearest letter box and der? ibcin therein ? ? ? ? Mr. Morton looked up from a pile of letters lie was perusing as Byron Forcythe entered at bis summijns. 'I received no receipt for the money 'you mailed last Tuesday evening. Did you make no mistake !" eyeing the youth sharply. ?I mailed them, sir, at the corner,' he returned reapectfully, ibe rich blood mounting to his cheek as be compre* hended that be was under ?tupici?n. 'Strange,' muttered Mr. Morton. ?Warran is always punctual?never knew carelessness like this on bis par! be/ore?you can <?o now.' He dashed off a note to the gentleman in Prsvi* dence and mailed it. The next day he r? eclvedanswer lhat the money bad uol reached there. He again summoned bis young clerk. 'Do you still maintain that you mail? ed the letter all right ?' 'I do. sir.' Again the blood rushed painfully to Ins face at the Imputation, Mr. Morton, eyeing him Brjspiciously through his classes tbouglit it a proof?! guilt. '1 liave written to Warren, and In informs me that lie never received tin money. You see. sir. under the cir? cumstances, I can barfly trust you You may be innocent, but it looks picious, I cannot retain you longe: | unless I have complete confidence h: ' you. I do not say that you have acte? dishonestly, but it looks dar!;, sir, dark. And Byron Forcythe, with his prou 1 sensitive nature stung t? the quick b! the unjust suspicion, went outoi tin employ of Morton k Co.. with hii ?scanty earnings in bis pocket, to bi ?-.l employment elsewhere. Two policemen belonging to statioi 5. Boston, met at the junction of their respectivo heats, corner of Trcmontanc Dover streets, aliout three O'clock a, m. TbeOiSelves in a shadow, they 'spotted' a man standing at the n letter-box, sesmlagly engaged in some? thing questionable. After glancing around hastily and discovering no one in the dim starlight, he unlocked the box and transferred the contents to his pockets. He repeated the preces* at the next box. When he reached the third box, the officers, who had followed stealthily, concluding that the situation was ripe, surprised him by a heavy hand on etch shoulder, demanding what he was about. T am mailing a Utter, he said.rcadil.v reeling the interferrence. 'Can't b fellow-' 'A letter, yes. Let us seethe con ten ts of your pockets.' Finding himself cornered he pro? duced a handful of letter?. 'Sorry, but we will have to invite you to take a walk with us.' And, form? ing a squad of honor, they escorted him to the police station. lie seemed t<> have something in his hand that he wished to be rid of. Thej gave way purposely, and soon heard a Blight click on the pavement. No: easily b.illi. d, a ?harp search with matches brought .1 duplicate key to light. Arriving at tlie lockup they relieved liira of the leiten and left him to await his trial. Mr. Marion, running B*% ev s over the columns of the Journal, lighted upon this item: 'The man whom officers While fend Patterson arrested for robbing 1> ttei boxes has confessed that it was Dot his first offense. A quantity of mail matter has been found with him. union.! which he owns he found several sums ol money. It can be seen at-de? partment of the po?tolff'je.' Mr. Mortou rode down to the office. Asking to seo the recovered mail mattei'8, he ran his eyes over them, and was not much surprised to find the ones he had given to his olerk to mail that Tuesday evening. The money had, of csurse, been abstracted, the envelope having been carefully opened at one end, and it ?till contained the note that had accomnanied the ni?.nev. 'Never knew such a thing before,' thought Mr. Morton as he rode home? ward. 'Through this piece of rascality I have turned off .Forcythe. Wish 1 knew where he is. It did look sus? picions, though,' trying to case hi? conscience that told him he had been rash. Veronica Morton made a lov? picture as she sat under the subdm gaslight in her warm, bright sitti room, idly dreaming over a volume crimson and gold that contrasted in the lilly whiteness of her dimpled han A rarely beautiful girl of eighteen, wi eyes conlaining unfalhonable depths womanly tenderness and truth, ric ??ream-tinted complexion,that deepen? gradually into vivid color on her c'iec a mouth sweet, lovable and firm, and form of exquisite proportions, attired ly-fllbng dress of maroon silk.

His carewoi face relaxed from its drawn lines as II: girl put her arms around his neck ar kissed him. They passed, into th supper room, with its bright silver an dainty china.

And when Veronica laid her head o: her pillow that night the face of ilia tall, handsome youth, with fcarlea blu .; and fair, broad brow. wh? was under tile shallow of :. picion, haunted her dream.

IiuiToR Gkkat Southwest: Dear Sir?We have two active partici politic here, namely : the Nationa Greenback and the Rcpublican-Dcmo< crat'c-Bellmout. But a majority of oui most honest and wide awako citizens endorse the National Greenback party on account of the good it can and will do, while on the other hand wc severe' ly. though justly, denounce the othei party because of evil that it has done and will undoubtedly do if it remains in power. There are some who object to the Greenback platform, beuausc, as they say, it is a scheme fabricated by ctrtaiu politicians to ?livide the Democratic party. It is erroneous to conclude thai this new movement is tire result merely of a split in the Democratic party, foi the records of most sf the Greenback clubs throughout the United ?jStates will show about the same number from both the old parties, who have joined the Grecubackcrs. It is true that the Dem? ocrats are divided, and the same is true of the Republicans, for every honest and intelligent man, who heretofore in his blindness clung to his old party with the vain hope that it would give rulief to an oppressed people, but at last awoke to a realization that he had been deceived, has deserted the ranks o? a parly which has failed to fulfill its pledges to its constituents, legislating in in-half of monopolies against the in ! terests of the people. These are the 1 men who have espoused the Green - hack cause. Y'cs, with gratification the writer adds that both parties are divided. ( weakened, lost, ruined, as they justly ve to be. And now they stand ? paralised, while the triumphant shout | of a new party, which deserves the sympathy and support of every true and : patriotic man and womm, comes to the of the oppressed millions, whose - swell with thanks to God. It is true that there are a few whom ; we hear blasphemously croaking from | their sheep's clothing, words of denuu ? dation for the Greenbacicer and vainly trying to defend their obnoxious laws. But the working people of the United States have h. en Imll.lozed long enough. Another objection is that there are too many ignorant persons, uaraely, farm? rs connected with this Greenback ment, In reply to this the writer asks if the tenor of all laws is not 1er the greatest good to the greatest uutn Then do not condemn or censure' the National Grccnbacker. Again the National Grecubacker is [Snored because be wants an absslute irredeemable paper money. What log? ical reason can you assign for objecting to such a money? Does not history and common sense teach us that suca a money is, iudced, the prime requisite to the welfare of a nation? The want of an absolute, irredeemable paper monej Is emphatically what has brought our country into Its present condition. Soma denj tin* ; they refer us to the fact that the money that was issued in time of the war was lawful, absolute t. inli'i'. The platform was good enough which was testified to by Sec. Chase at the termination of the war, when he said: "Inmy humble judgment, if out of this war this cirrcncy becomes SS is . led in our platform so that the la? borer, at the end of his day's work, re* : ceivei bis dollar or two and shall be perfectly sure that it will net turn to dust ?vr a.thes, what more docs he want ? ? If the government is administered as it should be, every dollar in greenbacks Will be as good as a dollar in gold.'' j Fonder over this, ye corrupt pthticians, if your petit minds can retain so much, Sad *cc if you do uot stand ou slippery rod. Yes, the money and the law were good, but the law was violated and yet there arc a few shallow minds by theiiilluence of a little aristocratic ?hat persist in violating the laws of our nation. If the government had been adminis? tered as it should have been, this issue of paper mon ay would have been equal* ly as good as gold and neither would there have been any probability of its turning to "ashes." But the govern? ment was not administered as it should have been, therefore our paper money ha? not been at all times equally as good as gold. It has turned to '?ashes" because of unjust administration on the part o*f our government. We have Bjmpatbhf*. With and fought for our government, and uow as our first re? ward for all this it has legislated against us and placed burdens upon us too hi ?ivy to bear any longer, and now, ex? cept it redress our ?vrongs, WS will syni natbize vsith it no more. Our money has been turned to "ash? es" and an unlawful anti-democratic bond lias, been given iu return, which has drawn from lahor | hundred mil? lion or moro each year; whereas not one cent has been given in return. Si, -'.I.V01.1.1 in the last fifteen years has been taken from tho laborer to pay to the theiving bondholder. Ami further, sec what the expenses of the government,?not our govern? ment hut that of a little body of thcij. ing aristocrats,?have been for the last fifteen year?. Sec what a ?urn (1)7,591,? 917,.. 14 00) which wc have paid to main? tain a government that deliberately rebs iuduslry of all her enterprise. All this, exclusive of interest on the unlawful bonds, ha? been taken from the people to fatten the corrupt politi? cians of both the old parties, now on trial and shortly to he swooped out of existence by the honest (ireeuback men, Wo have been duped. We have been fed on busks with the swine, and such a state of things has brought us to re? alize our true condition, as il did the prodigal son. So let U9 arise and re turn home, return to the constitution of our forefathers. Let us, for the sake of God, of ourselves, our wives, and our children-, leave the old parties and per? sistently contend for tho principles for which our patriotic father? fought and died. Then let us leave the old parties, for the one i? immersed in corruption while the other is inflated with iniquity. Leave them for they have done us no good whatever ; but have wronged us> seriously wronged us in the past, and now is it, as we must judge the future by the past, reasonable to presume that they will do better in tlif. future ? No ! No ! How could they ? l-'or they are rotten ! Read, think, and then vote yourself to be a slave to prejudice and corrup? tion, or a. free, liberty-loving citizen. Not with the fond hope and fervent prayer that the Almighty God, with His spirit of good, may forward on, with success, this just and honest work of the Grecubackcr, the writer hereof con? cludes. Very respectfully, S. Cullers. In a Doomed Tillage. CHILDREN ABANDONED TO THE NURS? ES, HOUSES DESERTED AND STORES CLOSED. A letter ?written trom Memphis on the 19th inst., gives a vivid description of the conditi on of Grenada. The writer says that twelve houses to the right and sevcu to the left of bis home where deserted, and for hours together not a person was seen stirring in a once happy neighborhood. The groceries were closed, nearly all of its proprie? tors having fallen victims to the scourge. Being assured by physicians that one who has recovered trom yellow fever is exempt from it ever afterward, tho writer tried to find his acquaintances and assist them.

It was appalling to behold young and obi women huddled i.i some by-way, trem? bling, praying, sobbing and casting despairing glances in every direction, not knowing whither to go.

It was not evident that the attack was by their own enemy. But Mr. Gibbes did not know that the house would not be tired on.and he advised instant light. He was carried to his chair, and the whole household sallied forth from a back door. The scene was terrific. The n ight was pitchy dark, and when, justas they stepped out. a sheet of llinic belched forth from the vessels, ?t I? emed to be against their faces. The roar shook the ground. The troops were too busy saving themselves to notice the fugi? tives, and they pushed on a? rapidly as possible. Not one was snilicicntly protected from the rain.
