The roads were in splendid condition the lovely August afternoon that wai the beginning of the love drama it Rutherford Hope's life, and he and hi sister made a pretty picture as the] rode along 10 the phaeton, with the rein; laying easily in Miss Hope's pretty,fair strengthful bands, and the silver-plate., harness, and white flynet contrasting s?. admirably with the pony's jetty, glossy coat. Such a splendid lfeoking fellow at Mr. Hfepewas, with his lazy, sleeping ey? -1 hut could lire, and light, and Hash snoiigh when occasion demanded with his drooping moustache of tawny amber. his tair blonde face, and bis darkly amber hair, cut shert to his line head. She looked at him, and thought how grand it was to have him homo for ??ood and all?thought of what Florence Sydney had said c? hita?pretty piquant, Flo, who had hceu Iva's bosom friend and conGdant for years, who had read all of Rutherford's letters to bis sister, and who had fallen desperately in love with his picture. f?o Iva thought of all this, and : little smile parted her lips?mnkinj the lovelest ?dimple on her cheek?m she thought of Floreuce Sydney's ?tlailj expected arriral for a Ion?- visit, am h?j?v lier handsome brother wouh succumb, and gire her Florence lorn sister. 'Well tel! me what is ?o pleasant fot you to contemplate.' Iva'? smile developed into :i joyoiu little laugh. 'I was thinking what a splendid lime we will have when Florence cames, Oh, Kutlieil'od you must full in love with her ! She is just as sweet as sweet can he, and oh, heiress to 1 can't tell how much 1' Her enthusiasm fell on very : ground, for Mr. Hope only settled him* st If more lazily in the corner of the phfeton, and pulled his hat over hi? eyes to screen them from the sun. 'You are very considerate my dear. oiVerin such a charming temptation; but I may as well relieve your aoxiou? mind at once, and assure you. that of all things I detest in this world, ?me is I your schosl-girl divinity, and Ihc other ?an heiress.' A frown wrinkled Iva's low foreln-ad. ?oh, Rutherford! The idea of dis pising Miss Sidney because she baa money. Suppose when I go into so? ciety the sanie, remarks arc applied to me V He showed his teeth for a second time iu an amused .smile. 'Don't he profound lva. Yen arc sweet, pretty and refined-' She broke in excitedly: "And Florence is a hundred linn - mere so, Rutherford, please don't be Ugly when she comes?' 'Ugly! I ugly! Now sis, that's too bad? Hut I tell you frankly, I don't anticipate seeing much of her. 1 cas enjoy it in imagination?important, naughty, vulgarly conscious of her per? sonal golden charms. Nfe, thank you Iva. When I marry it will be to a girl who never knew what it was to have a second silk dress to her name?one of your quiet, gentle, sensitive flowerets, ! who will not have to own everything ! that makes life pleasant and happy to me'-' After that, the drive didn't seem so pleasant, and Iva's cheeks were con? sideiably mere flushed than usual when she threw the reins to the groom in waiting, and ran up the marble steps to greet a veiled young lady who had arrived a moment before. ^in the elegant large bed-room t whu b [vaconducted her guest, the girl had a Ion*; and confidential talk. 'It's awfully horrid in him Florence I know he would just worship yen ifl. knew you; but he will nut give you ; chance to become intimately a c qua in led. Ifyou were a poor, mlssrabl lovely?Florence Sydney! lean fix it lean think that Sultan ola brothers mine !' J ?.There was a sparkle m Miss Sydney' dark eyes, lovely, lustrous eyes, will whito blue-veined, cnrlmg?lashed lid and a little quiver of true woman l; shame on her axquisitc mouth. 'Hut, Iva. Uli me one ibing, do! l?a Mr. Hope the faintest idea how I ?1 have fallen in?hfew I admire?his pic? ture? Oh, Iva, I should die with sham?: if I thought he knew I had given him an unsought, unasked, heart!' But Iva waa not disposed to humen Florence's Under mortification. 'Oh, Flo, it's ao perfectly glorious tf Ihink what we shall do with Kuther ford! He shall fall in love with you in spite of his imperial opinion to the con? trary. He has never seen you, or even your picture, aud he shall think thai yeu are Nellie St. Lawiencs, and that Nellie is you. Iwillaend her a note this minute, explaining that I want he to personate you?hateful, h-iu-iUt limpering. Oh, Flo, and you must I the graceful, ivsi-rvi-d darling that y< are, and that your name is Nellie t Lawrence, the masquerade will si Nellie te ?hath fur she is a limb for fu'. Three hours later two young ?Ssl were sauntering up ami down the gras; croquet lawn; one ol them Iva Hop the other a very elaborately gotten t p.-i'son. with a saucy retrottssi noss, ai fringe? of straight hair hanging over hi forehead. On tin- lawn step of tie' piazza delicate, graceful youns girl was si ting, dressed in a lavender casbmer and looking lovesome and lovel; Rutherford Hope thought, as the tablea attracted his attention. He threw hi? cigar *wsy as Iva casf beamingly up to him accompanied b the young lady In her heavy, trailm silk dress, and hare brown arm*, loade with braceltts. "Kuthtili'id. I want to present you t my dearest friend, Misa Sydney. FU my brother, Mr. Hope.' The heiress bowed and giggled, an Rutherford took a swift inventory ofhe physical.] and mentally, as be salamei before her. and expressed '.he opinioi that she revealed exuberant health. 'Oh, pretty well, I thank you, l'n never ill. am I, Iva '.-' Rutherford gare Iva a look she in? terpreted exactly. Then he glanced a the slight graceful girl on the steps caressing a pel grayhound of his. 'You have another friend, Ira?' Iya glauced Indifferently at her. 'Oh, yes, she came over this more I in";. We knew her at school. Thinks j something*)! taking the children (luring vacation, and perfecting 'heir German.' Miss Sidney twisted one ofher heavy ring? conspicuously. 'Whatcvi r she wanted to come for now. I don't sec, unless she had an j idea your handsome (brother would be at homo.' She smiled straight in Uutherford' lace, and he turned away, with a anee of disgust that he made no attempt t hide. 'Introduce mc to 1. r, [va.' l?e sai it in a lordly way, thai onl, t? obey? d, and Iva, with a mia chi? voua ? ni in h r cy< s, led the ?va; up to her. ' duccd to you. Mr. ! Hope Mist St. Lawrcn - .'

Daily he gn w more indtguaut at the manner in which Iva allowed Miss St. Lawrence to be treated, an I at las) he came out in bold defiao 'I see no reason why you should be at Buch -i" cial pains to snub Miss St. Lawrence on every possible occasion. As a lady, she ci rtainly .1? si rvea to receive, at least, ordinary courtesy at your bands.1 The 1 nit. as curl? d her upper lip viciously. 'I dare say. now, y? u think she ought tobe invited to our boating party, to night? Dul Iva and I have decided that she is hardly enough on a social equal? ity with us to go as a companion. I suppose she might go as our maid, and i ihe luncheons and shawls.' Mr. (lope's usual ?gallantry almost forsook him before thi? vulgar upstart*? estimate of the dark-eyed girl whose society waa bt i eming sweet to him. i think if the proof of the refined I womanliness were put to the test, Miss j Nellie would prove a formidable rival to ? any ?f the boating party. Iva, will IM'ss ; st. Lywrencs be invited?' Iva took out her list languidly. 'I think no!; every seat la already ni'- .:.' Rutherford took hi* hat angrily from the table. ?i beg your pardon; one si ai will be vacant. I shall not go unless Miss St l-awrencc do? -.' That was the bcginulng of the end. in a fornighl Rutherford offered him* sell with his wealth and position, to the quiet dark?eyed cirl, who had taught him life's s wee te-I ICSSHU. 'Nellie my dsrllng, are you sure you ! love me!' The exquisite mouth was quivering? and the daik. soulful eyes were lifter! to his. Oh, Mr. Hope I -aiwavsl Are yoi sai-e yen care lor me?

'I don't like the one Iva has strange? ly elcvftled to the honor of chiet of friends. I knew how it would be .when I heard ?he was coming?conlliicutially sweet. I was perfectly sickened ?afhe name. 11 was nothing but 'Fife?Flo iront morning till night. I knew si would be just what she is. JJut you oh, my treasure? forgot everything bi that Nellie St. Lawrence loves m when I look at you.' A smile struggled with tears in h< eves. (But, Mr. Hope, Nellie St. Law rence docs not lore you.' He looked at her. Her manner, he tone, were so far from jesting, that fo a second his cheeks blanched. 'Child, don't joke! Not love me You do?you must.' She laid her dainty, ringlcss hand 01 his arm, and lifted her ejes to his will their wealth of love in them: 'I love you. I have always loved yoi even when j011 despised mc, and hatei the sound ef my name.

Itevlnnitia 01 Tiiy Sorrawi. Little Heart, .Iti?t after sunset yesterday a brighi faced little girl, attended by a playfu black*aad-tan pup, was at the puni at Sei ciith and Walnut street. Xea by, on the curbstoue, were tw Sparrows' chirping cheerfully. The pu made a dash at them, and much te hi delight ene ef them was unable to fly It was a young one, nud the other sva the mother.

The little girl's hear was touched for the bi.tds, and callin. at the pup she started in putsuit|of him Dog, birds,and girl, for awhile all great ly excited were flying here and then about the gutter, now en the pavement - :i in the street.

Fast year he be? came attached to the corps of the Dt**? ocr?t; he made himself UBcful in ahnest every department of the paper; attend? ed to the telegraph, performed the du? ties o/areporter,and occasionally wrote editorials. Mr. Xorral was a native of Lynchburg, Va. He was a mere child when the war began, but a? soon as he reached his? fourteenth year ho joined a a Virginia artillery company in the Con? federate service aud served therein un? til the end of the war, Soon after the war he left Lynchburg aud settled in Cincinuatti, where he was engaged in the tobaccco busincis. While in (,'iu cinnatti he married, lived there aud in C.vington until last year,?then he came to Xew Orleans, and fini/ing husiuess here, settled and wrote for his wife and child to join him. He was well pleas? ed with Xew Orleans,and had determin? ed to makcjiis home permanently here. When the fever came he uot olay re? fused to leave, but had determined to profler.hls services to the Howard Asso? ciation.

To this charity and philanthro? py is doubtles due his death. Last Fri? day he was taken sick. His illness aud death wen; peculiarly sad. He aud his child were attacked with fever withiu a few hours of each other, together they lay sick in the same bed, together they died. The tie that bound them togeth? er was unusally strong.

He liad often expressed a desire to die at the same tiiae with his father. Heaven granted his prayer. The little boy expired yes? terday morning, and the father, shocked by the child's death,soon followed. "In death they were not separated." He leaves behind him a widow who has shown her heroism in this terrible catas | trophe, which tore from her husband and her only child.
