"Aro vmi nnitp. sure?" she said, not ex pecting, only hoping, that some way of escape might open.

Mildew, for two successive years, made their ereat wheat-field a desolation. The long rains of early summer spoiled the nciu Inw-lvillfr meadows: and the fire spread nuor trio liill-side. covered with rare tim bers, and swept away tneir lences. xno third year, when the season of harvest approached, for many weeks the sky was brass, and tne earm oust ueneaui mc scorched and ruined crops, oieauy, quiet, home-loving, pious people were they ; and yet it seemed as if the wrath nf hpaven had descended upon them. And then money was needed to re build and re-stock, to purchase the nee essaries of life, to provide for the coming seed-tiHie. and the larm was mortgaged fnr the rmrnose of raisine these neediui funds. And in this condition Horace Hardin?- found home matters at the ex' nimtion of his term of service, Old Simon Suggs advanced the money and held the securities. He was a hard, grasping old man, a money-lender by prolession, grown ncn ujiuh uuiuuij lie would lend to Mr. Hard ing only on the security of his small but fine farm. Only thus, and the money must he had. and lus terms were at- IOI t ( " One year's harvest, at war prices, will pf ns richL" Mr. Harding said ; and so. blindly, it is true, but reluctantly, he gave tne miser a noiu upon iuum oi.iw, hv,t worth the sum advanced, and built and sowed in hope which hope that third summer that summer of burning heat and drought blasted, and left him Dan nipt in hope as in purse. And now the time was come for pay' ment, and old Simon demanded the ful fillment. of his bond. We have called him old Simon, for that Was the name by which he waa known far and near, and he had the pinched and jicpd annearance which a miserly life so often nrodtices: but, in reality, was not old enough to escape the im pending draft. Simon was a great coward, and valnpd his nrecious icrson far too highly to be willinir to make it a mark bullets. As the time approached, h fours so increased that he reluctantl decided to procure a substitute. And this was how Horace Harding got per sonally complicated in Ihe affair. Old Simon threatened to foreclose mortgage. He had bought up ever claim he could discover against M Harding. If he made use of the power in his hands, certain ruin must follow the distressed family. It was not manv hundred dollars, but it represented home, comfort, ieace to the stricken man. To lose these wa.s more than could bear. He bent beneath the blow 1 ..1.1 ..f Vrrm n l,ul mi.l.lln.

And old Simon, looking upon Ihe ruin he could work, saw in it opportunity. He had a double motiv one now hidden in the background securely that its existence was never suspected. But he felt that he could abide his time. janoo) pun 'siniiisqus Fit- auioosq oj -iou oi asodojd oi ska a.ttu isjn giti as a consideration the relinquishment of all the claims lie held against he lie for the to his so aot the cider Harding. And this it was (litit Horace had accepted. Tliat very day he had agreed to enter the army as a substitute for Simon Suggs, and had re ceived mortgage, bills, and all. in return. His father waa a lree man, uui ue ao bound. . U w as verv hard. Lone aco. before lie first enlisted, he and Mary Lord had been, lovers. They had waited lor Ins leturn.and then lioraoe had no home to which he might bring a wife. And now there must be a farther delay, perhaps a separation only to be ended in another siiiere of existence. It was a dreadful trial to both those young hearts. How great atrial they, even now, could hardly estimate. But Horace was comforted by the. thoucht that thus he purchased home And peace for his parents, ana surety no sacrifice was too great if made for them. ftcrhewas gone, those he left be iiud were as peaceful as human beings can be, encumbered with anxiety find sad expectation. Battle arter battle, dire and dread, was fought. Horace was in most of them. Horace was exposed to the horrors of wounds, imprisonment, and sudden death. No one could pre dict the tidings of the coming day ; out a great hush of dread r.ni expectation was over all the land. At last the blow fell. A great terrible battle had been fought. The wounded and the dead counted by thousands. There were hundreds of prisoners Horace's own regiment had been more than decimated. The smoke of battle must clear away before the losses can be counted. It cleared. The nan. ;s long lists of slain were published, and col umns of wounded. His name was not among those. Stay! here it is. But opposite to it is written, "Missing." Many months weary months passed away, and no tidings came of the lost one. And then old Simon Suggs appears once more upon the scene. He has bided his time. He does not mean to wait till the deadness of despair is quite er until energy and power of resist ance are re-awakened. He has known the mother of jUary Lord all her life. In her youth he had sneaking fondness for her, long sacn ed to his nassion for e.iin. Now lie isits her in l.er trouble, modulates the sharp whine of his voice to softness, and ondoles with her m tne loss sue nas met. She cannot see lus punned and eagre face, and she has not that sensi- ve gilt wuereuy sue can ticteci mc lseness of his voice, or, with sure 111- tinct, shrink from the besotted selfish ness of his nature. Thcv are verv Door. now. for Mary has lad neither heart nor strength for her accustomed tasks. She has done her best, poor girl, and sacrihed much for her notnefs comiort. rorno more uuuhu hild existed than this sadly-tried girl. Bt in her crief she has made mistakes, and seemed to neglect her employer's ork, and they no longer trust her as they did. She has become languid and nerveless, and could not, all at once, muster the forces of her nature that had been worsted in her sore conflict with grief and suspense. It was w niie sue was in una rno lat Simon Sucus commenced his siege. He was a wise and careful man, for, first of all, he undermined the mothers caution. In a little time he had her all upon his side, and then by degrees he TTontnroH tncnpnk nhiinlv. First, he said slighting words about Horace. He had been cowardly, he hinted. 11 was Known that he tried to slink away from the field during this very action. He had been fired at. He was undoubtedly either dead or a deserter in the last case hid ing from the inevitable doom of his crime, and would never dare to return, thus leaving Mary as free as if he were really dead. Then old Simon would boast of his wealth, and utter such magnificent promises for the future, that the poor, weak and sightless woman was ever more and more persuaded that he was the best friend and prote'etor two help less women ever had that Mary could not do better than to marry him that she must accept his offer that it was her duty not to slight this gleam oi fortune, but to provide thus for her own comfort and the helpless old age of her mother. Mary did not yield easily. She re sisted" with all her feet le powers. ut she had a great deal to contend with. She loved and respected her mother. The habit of obedience was strong, and so was that of self-sacnhce. lor hersen, she reflected, it mattered little sne should not live long. IShe had not tne faintest shadow of love for Simon Suggs, no respect, not even t lerance. He was totally, utterly repuisi vt to ner m mmu, in person, in character. If she had any positive feeling towards him, it was that of hate. But convinced nt Inst tliat Horace was gone, she resolved to tninK only of her mother. v ith a heart numh with despair, she gave her consent to the proposed match. The wedding morning came. The poor, pale, hopeless bride awaited the coining nf the bridegroom, with an apathy more dreadful to behold than uie liveliest paroxysms of hate or disgust. It was well that her mother, who loved her dearly even while practicing this cruelty, waa blind and unseiiRiuve. She thought Mary had shown great cood sense, and that she was securing for both of them an excellent, iiomu. She was pleased, for she was weary of nnvitinn nnd tioveriv. And men me unuciuum, '.6 . , .1 - : .1 . lnnt'lnn older and meaner than ever in his unwonted finerv. came, and the party sot. nut for the village church. And as thev entered, Simon Suggs started, for his eye fell, for one moment, upon a soldier, ill worn and faded uniform, sauntering up the opposite street. Only a moment, and uie man at gone, buroiy soKiiers ncn? iuuuhuu enough in those days, and he smiled at his sudden apprehension. jiuuiuu moment, and the pair stood before the altar, and the service began. yuictly up the aisie came tue wium , worn and faded his clothes, thin and brown his face a contrast to the gay bright crowd.

Barry, the painter, was with Nollckens, at Koine, in 17":). and rliey were extremely intimate. Barry took the liberty one night, when they were about to leave the English coffee-house, to exchange hats with him. Barry's was edged with lace, anil Nolle kens' was a very shabby, plain one. Upon his returning the hat "the next morning lie was asked by Nollekens why he left him his gold-laced bat. "Why, to tell you the truth, my dear boy," answered Barrv, "I fully expected assassination last night, and 1 was to have been known by my laced hat."

Public architecture is not our strong' hold, nor is it likely to be so long as the first impressions of the building art are i no,! na n ru e. trom structures BO wretchedly unartistio as the average ! Rchnol-honse. However iust mav he our ! pride in our common scnoois, ine Hous ing of th"m redounds very little to our credit. This fact a made painfully apparent at the Paris Exposition, a few years ago, where a model of an American school-house was exhibited. A grand idea was probably never more pitifully represented. It was an ugly little wooden school-house, sent all the way from the interior of Illinois to the Champs de -Mars, to show the assembled world our high regard for popular educa tion. A Webster's spelling-book would have been as felicitous a representation the results of national effort. Yet, bad as it was, the sample to use a com mercial figure was far too good to rep resent fairly the character of the stock. was new and clean; and happily it was impossible to transport the forlorn and unsightly surroundings of the aver age schooi-house. Many of the lower order of creation exhibit, individually, quite as much in dependence in the construction of their houses as man does in his. Men goon, from generation to generation, copying inherited models as unnoiy as oirus anu beavers. The bees that lead civilization westward are not more conservative in their building instincts than the carpen ters who follow. The impressions received upon the mind at school are retained through life ; whether they are pleasant and agreeable, or the converse, depends very materially upon the school-house and its surround ings. And this brings us to the question, why are not school-houses fashioned so as to present an attractive appearance inside and out? At roadside crossings, from Maine to Minnesota, the traveler will find the same nondescript structure : too small for barns, too ill-proortioned for dwellings, too much neglected and desolate for outlying farm" buildings, indeed too repulsive in all respects, and exhibiting too many marks of parsi mony to be anythingbut school-houses. Undoubtedly every man or woman, who has ever been a school-boy or girl, remembers just how the old school-house looked. Despite the rifts of time and intervening miles, it is there memory goes for pleasant or unpleasant retro soection. Suppose the school-house is made an attractive feature in some rare bit of landscape ? It may occupy space upon a gently sloping hillside, so that it lie embowered in shade, or it may be situate in the depths of a glen, where the babbling brook goes rippling and purling over rocky bed and through grassy banks ; but wherever situated, it should harmonize with the scenery immediately surrounding it, and be the first object to attract the eye of an artist. It may be argued that so ucsirauie a result is scarcely attainable. We sub mit that it is. without a single exception. There is no landscape so rugged that its roughness cannot be modified and pic turesque beauty fashioned from the very uncouthness of the surroundings, and this at a mere trifling outlay in point of fact, without any expense. For once enlist the pupils in the cause, and they will plant the trees and shrubbery, trail the vines and take pride in the work. But anything is good enougn ior a aiool-Iiouse ! That is the accepted idea: and so we go on, copying the blunders of our great-grandfathers, and fixing blots upon the face of nature, wherever a school-house is needed. If the site selected happens to be in the midst of a primeval grove, down it goes to the last tree, within the full limits of the lot. Just why this should be deemed necessary is not an altogether incom prehensible mystery. The school houses where we were taught the ele ments looked just so, and any innova tion might induce wayfarers to mistake the structure for a church building, or one intended for some other purpose than a school-house, and that would npvor do. How to induce a reform, not only in the architectural construction of our school-houses, but also in the entire sur roundings, is a question which cannot be too soon presented, or too persistently urged. Tht farming community are especially sensitive upon this point. Able and independent, tney cannot brook interference with affairs which concern themselves alone; and thus anv suggestion, looking to school-house ininrovenients. usually falls upon pre- indeed and unwilling ears. jiiioiner generation may be more artistic, less nrnctireil. and willing to sacrifice a little time, and even a little money, to make school-houses attractive to youth, and the dearest spot in memory's waste. D'ORA. The English as a Commercial People. English people have frequently be trayed a good deal ot sensitiveness ai Nnnnlenn's celebrated criticism that we are a "nation of shopkeepers." It all depends on the definition in what we consider the shopkeeper to consist. The old Greeks had a prejudice against re tailing, because they associated it wun a pefy retailing spirit. But it is not at all tru' hat littleness of mind must neces- sarilv nrcomnanv littleness of transac Hons. There is a famous sentence of Hebrew writ: "The cities whose mer chants were princes, and their traffick ers the I '-.orabie ot the earm. xne merchants of Venice were statesmen and princes ; they are forever recogniz able bv their nietures and palaces. All through our mediieval cities we have the combination of business and nobility. Nor are our London mercnanis, in ineir honest broadcloth, inferior to those who once wore the Tynan dye or the v ene titin velvet. The spirit of commerce now runs like a fibre through all orders of the community, binding together class with class and interest with interest. The present ago witnesses the somewhat curious phenomenon oi iiouieuieu m business." There was a time when it was thought a great thing for a trader to be raised to the peerage ; at present the peers seem busily rushing into the ranks of trade. Every one new can give a list of titled neonle with connections in busi ness. There is a current rumor to the effect that a great peer is a sleeping part ner in a large retail business house in the West-end. It is well known that thebrothers-iu-law of a princess are en gaged in commerce. The sons of the Duke of Argvle are pretty well content to lay aside their titles w ben engaged iu business transactions. It has also trans pired that royalty itself George IV., at least, when Prince of Wales had a busi ness share in one of the London morn ing papers. Business has sent its fibres throughout all the country, and no class of the community have greater commer cial interests than our aristocracy. The English are eniDhatieallv a commercial people ; but it is not less true that we are essentially an aristocratic people, and that amongst all classes of the commu nity there is an unmistakable feeling of regard fr those who occupy exalted sta tions. The subscription list, which has noble lord at its head, is likely to be filled far ouicker. and with much more resjicct- able sums, than one which lacks tuis adornment , while we all know the at traction which a title has on the pros pectus of a speculative company. The fact is, a respect for aristocratic associa tions is so deeply woven into our thoughts and habits, that it has become a second nature to us. This characteris tic national feeling has oT course its com mercial phase. Many scions of noble houses have earned lots of guineaaby fees as directors, or still greater remuner ation is promoters. Lomhn iyocidy. An old bachelor says that during leap-year the ladies jump at every oiler of marriage hence the term. Fossils. Don't bG fossils; old logs lying by the wayside for moss and fungus to grow to honeycomb and nests around. Be a upon; for worms snn ers lo weave man among men, with a purjiose and streiiL'th to accomplish. Don't be afraid of resistance the more the better. Friction cleans the bark and rubs down the knots. Dont be afraid of failure. You will be certain to find it, if everlast ingly seeking. If it must come, let the dav'lind you and not you the day. No man can succeed in all his undertakings, and it would not be well for him to do so. Things easily acquired go easily. It is by the struggle it costs to obtain that we learn to rightly estimate the value. Don't be fossils. They are content to rot out; to let matters take their course, and the sooner they are out of the way the better. They simply occupy the room needed by better men; by men who are vigorous, thriving sprouts of the great human tree; men who will take and keep a place in the world; who make business and attend to it; who amount to something; do some good to their race; men of hone, sinew and nerve ; men of thought and action, with the will to do and the heart to dare; men who would be missed and regretted ; not old, mouldy, worthless trunks ny the side of the stream, tossed up high and dry by one freshet to remain motion less until the coming and swelling of another. Don't be fossils of as little use to man kind as century buried logs. In the great world there is a place for everyone and he should be found in it. Fossils never are. They are simply drones in the busy hives, and sloths in the field, living upon the toil ol others, or laziiy clinging to one branch until driven by starvation to another. Morning sees them idle and night finds no generous deed, no kindly act, no noble thought accomplished. They are mere bangers on in the business mart, and make no sacrifices within the temple. For all it is knowu thev might as well be name less ; for all "the good they do, never have been born. It is not life with them ; nothing but a mere drawing of breath an existence. Cumbering the earth they are regarded not except with scorn, and dying would not be mourned or remembered. Earth they indeed are and that is all. There is nothing of the spiritual, and it may be questioned, without irreverence, if they have any soul. Don't be fossils. Better die in the struggle than rust out uselessly, want of success with effort is better than no striving for the prize. There is more of honor even in failure than to never have endeavored. He who perishes oravely in the combat receives the reward ot praise, though he fails to grasp the crown, -mere is pleasure in tuon, in excitement, in the trying, though the end is but a dream. Life is made up of trial and no wise man shrinks from or seeks to avoid it. Strike for the Truth and the Kight, and if the glory of the Victor is denied, you can at least gain that of the Martyr. Don't be human fossils miserable nothings! Be up and doing. Glory waits the seeking, and wealth the toiling for, nnd neither will come without the earnest seeking. Do something. If the great slips through your grasp, hold firmly on to the less, ue anyining, u honest, rather than a human nonentity. of to Interviewed.

The coast of Peru is within the region of .rprmil south-east trade winds, an though the Peruvian shores are on the verge of the great south-east boiler, yet it never rains there. The reason is plain. The south-east trade winds in the Atlan tic ocean first strike the water on the coast of Africa. Traveling to the north west they blow obliquely across the ocean until they reach the coast of Brazil. By this time they are laden with vapor, which thev continue to bear along across the continent, depositing it as they go, and supplying with it the sources of the Rio de la "Plata and the southern tribu taries of the Amazon. Finally they reach the snow-capped Andes; here is wrung from them the last panicle of moisture that a very low temperature can attract.

The great majority of people arc firnilv convinced that the late confession "Elizabeth," with regard to "Henry Ward" is a re-lie-able document. "Pa," questioned little Johnny Marsh, "Do you think Bob Ingersoll is right?" "I'll tell you what I think," growled the old man, "if both of you don't do different from what you are doing now, you'll have a warm conviction of what awaits you in the next world." Trout-fishing lieing in order, the rod is taken down, and the reel and line and flies examined, and, as the husband remarks: "to-morrow will be a fine day," the wife of bis bosom answers. "Y'es, for cleaning house, and you'll have take down the stoves and take up and shake the carpets and do the white washing, and all alone this year, times are so hard." Thus is our liberty cur tailed, our brightest dreams non-soot-ed and we made slaves of feminine czars. Have men no longer any rights or feel ing, or is all of freedom to be crushed out? "Cull the next case," said his honor, and a man struggled up to the bar with his face looking as if he had been fool ing with a briar-patch and a compound, double-jointed, high pressure threshing machine. He was closely followed by a woman struggling to get loose from the grasp of two policemen. "How is this, madame ?" queried bis honor, with his brows lowering like storm clouds, and his voice as tho mut tering of thunder.

Interview with the President Interview with the President on the Attitude of the Government Toward Southern Affairs. The Washington National Repub lican prints an editorial interview with the President on the Southern situation. Omitting questions, he represented as saying: "The time for discussion has pass ed. It is now too late for anything but the most determined and vigor ous action. This determination was reached several days ago, and the deliberations of the Cabinet on this subject since then Lave bet n com paratively brief, and confined main ly to the consideration of the duty the Attorney General in the prem ises. 'When the Southern policy was inaugurated, it was with an earnest desire to conciliate thc Southern leaders, to round off the sharp angles of sectional difference, and to soften the asperities of polit ical strife. No one wi.l deny that the attempt to enfoice this policy was most earnestly made, nor that was carried out with a conscien tious desire to accomplish the result for which it had been inaugurated. Of the personal and partisan sacri fices I made in this effort, and of the consequent interruption of certain relations which bad previously exist ed between myself and some of my supporters, I have nothing to say just now, but it appears that the leaders who made use of pledges eith er did not exert themselves to keep them, or were nnable to do so. In fact, I am reluctantly forced to ad mit that the experiment was a fail- are. The first election of import ance held since it was attempted hns Droved that fair elections, with iree suffrage for every voter in the South, are an impossibility under the present existing condition of thina-p. It is not because the Re publican party appears as the suffer er in these results that I complain It is because free suffrage and fre Jom of political rights have been in terfered with, that lam called upon to take coemizacce of these distur bances. If the facts were exactly re versed, and if the Republicans bad committed these outrages upon the Democrats, my duty would be the same. It will not do for me, or for anv official before whom the ques tions mav come, to treat them other wise than in an unpartisan way. The partisan press will naturally take a partisan view of the case, and I will r . ... . p i - t u be held to account ior aiumg nepuu licane, the statements 1 mean, in flaunting the bloody shirt, as it is called ; but for all that l shall do my duty as Chief Magistrate of all the Decple. Democrats and nepuoncans like : and if in the execution of the laws iustice 6hall demand punish ment of this or that man, whatever his political connection may te, shall not be deterred by partisan All that I know is that great crimes have been committed, ,md it is mv dnty to aid in the punish mr-nt of criminals. I do not think the Southern leaders who have prom sed to protect the blacks in the ex ercise of their rights are responsibh for these crimes. Governor Harup ton. for example, has tried repeated ly to repress the violence which has characterized the cntBpair;n m douiq Carolina, and failed. Snch Repnb licans as Judge Lee, and Mr. Rainey. and tx-Senator S wails, of that State, have advised me of these facts. They sav that Hampton can not control the red shirts, as they call them, and they have repeatedly informed me oi the speeches he nas made atprecai inrr violence in the conduct of th campaign, and it appears uins uur- c . . -. ii .i r 1 einor NicholF, in iiouisiana, is eaiu estly opposed to these proceedings, or the same kind of violence in his State. The Officers of the Depart ment ofJus i e have b en instructed to carry out the proceelinoSalreaJycorc menced not only agaictt thosi who have been arrested, I ut against others who will soon be arrested. It is pro posed to make a clean sweep of this business, and exnaust, every resource in the execution of justice. The in tegrity of American citizenship has been grossly violated in wide spread localities. It must be vindicated." The President closed by saying, in regard to the District Attorneys in Southern States, that "if it is dis covered that any officer of the class you refer to is not earnestly endeav oring to do bis whole duty in the matter, there will be no hesitation in taking proper steps to replace him, and to secure a vigorous pros ecution of these cases." iml n lie A a to A Woman's Opinion of Hayes.

The result is that, while by no means a stranger to policy.or to the giving of political reward, or even to the artful dodges which the saints of this world, I observe, do not disclaim to apply; on the whole-, tho moral atmosphere surrounding the man is clear and healthful.
