BY MARION DOUGLAS. Hid fields with useless daisies white, Between a river and a wood, With not another house In sight. The low-roofed yellow cottage stood, Whep I, Through all llte's rosy morning played. No other child the region knew; My only playmate was myself, And all our books, a treasured few, Were gathered on a single shelf; But oh: Not wealth a king might prize could be What those old volumes were to me! In winter nights beside the fire, In summer sitting lu the door, I turned, with love that did not tire, Their well worn pages o'er; In me, Though sadly fallen, it is true. Their heroines all lived anew! One day, about my neck a ruff Of elder flowers wit fragrant breath, I was, with conscious pride enough To suit the part, Elizabeth; The next, Ensnared by many wily plots, I sighed, the hapless queen ot Scots! Where darting swallows used to flit Close to roc, on some jutting rocks, Above the river, I would sit For hours, and wreath my yellow locks, And trill A child's shrill song, and, singing, plsy It was a siren's witching lay. On Sundays, underneath the tree That overhung the orchard wall, While watching, one by one, to see The ripe, sweet apples fall, 1 tried My very best to make believe I was In Eden and was Eve! Oh golden hours! when I, to-day, Would make a truce with care, No more of queens, In bright array, I dream, or sirens fair; In thought, I am again the little maid Who round the yellow cottage played. From St. Nicholas for December. Miscellaneous Selections. AN UNINVITED GUEST. It was nearlv three o'clock on hot summer's day; the long polished counters of our bank, the Royal Do mestic Bank, were crowded with customers money was flowing in and running out in the usual busi ness like manner. From a raised desk in my private room, I. the man ager of the Royal Domestic Bank, looked out on the busy scene with a certain pride and pleaaure. The Royal Domestic is not a long estab lished institution, and, without vani ty, I may say thatTmuch of its pros perity and success is attributable to the zeal and experence of its mana per. In corroboration of this state ment, I might refer to the last print ed report of the directors, laid be fore the stockholders at their last annual meeting, in which they were pleased to say but after all, perhaps may bo thought guilty of undue egotism and conceit, if I repeat the flattering terms in which they speak of me. A clerk put his head inside my door. "Air. Thrapstow, sir, to speak to you." "bend him in, Robert, ' 1 said. Charles Thrapstow I had known from boyhood; we had both been raised in the same country town. The fact that his parents were of con siderably higher social status than mine, perhaps made our subsequent intimacy au tne pieasnter to me, and caused me to set & value upon hia good opinion greater than its intrin sic worth, vllhrapstow was a stock broker, a very clever, pushing fel low, who had a reputation of pos sessing an excellent judgment and great good luck. At my request he had brought his accout to our bank. was a good account; he always kept a fair balance, and the cashier had never to look twice at hia check. Charlie, like everybody else in bus iness, occasionlly wanted money. I had let him have advances at vari ous times, of course amply covered by securities, advances which were alway promptly repaid, and the secu rities redeemed. At this time he had five thousand pounds of ours, to secure which we held City of Damas cus Watei- company's bonds, to the nominal value of ten-thousand. My directors rather demurred at these bonds, as being somewhat specula tive in nature; but as I represented that the Compan3r was highly re spectable, and its shares well quoted , themarket,and that I had full con fidence in our customer, our people sanctioned the advance."" I had per haps a little uneasy feeling myself about thoso bonds, for they were not iverybody s money, and there might have been some little difficulty in finding a customer fortham in case necessity for a sudden sale. Thrapstow came radiant He was good-looking fellow, with a fair beard and moustache, bright eyes of bluish gray, a nose tilted upwards giving him a saucy, resolute air; he was always well dressed, tne slim iest of boots, tho most delicate shade oolor in his light trowsers and gloves, the glossiest of blue, frock- coats, neat light dust-coat over it, a blue birds eye scarf round his throat, in which was thrust a mass ive pin, containing a fine topaz, full luster, and yellow as beaten gold. "Well, I've got a customer for those Damascus bonds waiting at office; sold 'em well, too to Bil lings lirotners,' wno want tnem lor Arab firm. One premium, and I bought at one discount." "I'm very glad of it, Charlie," I said, and I felt really pleased, not only for Thrapstow's sake, but be cause I should be glad to get rid of the bonds, and the directors' shrug whenever they were mentioned. "Hand 'em over old follow," said Charlie, and I'll bring you Billing's check up in five minutes. You won't have closed by then ; or if you have I'll come in at the private door." I went to the safe, and put my hand on the bonds. Charlie stood there looking so frank and free, holding out his hands for the bonds, that I hadn't the heart say to him, as I ought to have done. Bring your customer here and let him settle for the bonds, and then will had them over. I should have said this to anybody else, but some how I couldn't Bay it to Charlie. There would be only five minutes risk, and surely it was no risk at all. Tbe thing was done in a moment; was carried away by Thrapstow's irresistable manner. I handed over the bonds, and Charlie was off like a shot. I to it It It wanted seven minutes to three, and I sat watching the hands of the clock in a little tremor, despite my full confidence in Thrapstow; but then I had so thorough knowledge of all the rules of banking, that I couldn't help feeling that I had done wroDg. A few minutes, however, would set it right. Charlie's white hat and glitteiiDg topaz would soou put in appearance. Just a minute to three the cash ier brought me three checks, with a little slip of paper attached. They were Thrapstow's checks, for fifteen hundred twelve hundred and three hundred respectively, and his bal-l ance was only five hundred odd. I I turned white and cold. "Of course you must refuse them," I said to the cashier. When he went out I sat in my chair quite still for a few moments, bewildered at the sudden misfortune that had happened to me. Charles rri a, i i .1 - r i. 1 im www a oetauuer; but there was this one chance. He might have given the checks in the confidence of selling these bond?, and placing the bonds to this account. In due course,.these checks, which were crosseu. wouiu nave Deen brought to the clearing-house, and have been presented on the morrow. But it seemed his creditor had some mistrust of him, and had caused the check to be demanded out of due course. The clock struck three. Charles had not come back. The bank doors closed with a clang. I could endure the suspense no longer. Telling the bank porter that if Mr. Thrapstow came, he was to be admitted at the privajft door, and wa3 to be detained in my room till I returned. I went out, and made my way to his office, disrnJHesn'Uher i..-v, . r- t. . i i 1 - a youth of fifteen, knew nothing nA ', n ? r ? about him.

I told him in confidence what had happened, and asked his advice "Could I get a warrant against this Thrapstow for stealing the' bonds." "L1 pon iav word, said Gedge mount, "I don't think you can make a criminal matter of it. It isn't lar ceny, because you abandoned the possession of the bonds voluntarily. A I lrT; T.

But that advice was no good to me. lthinK l was wrong in taking it. I think I ought to have gone straight to the police office, and put the affair in the hands ol theTietect ive. Dignified men of law, like Gedgemount, always find a dozen reasons for inaction, exespt in mat ter that bring grists to their own mill I went home completely disheart ened and dejected. How could I face my directors with such a story as that I had to tell t" The only ex cuso that I could urge of private friendship and confidence in the man who had robbed us, would mako the matter only the .worse. Clsarh-, at the same time that I told the . cir eumstances to the directors, I should be bound to place my resignation in their hands, to be put into force if they saw fit And there would be little doubt but that they would ac cept it. How damaging, too; the story would bo to me, when 1 tried to obtain another appointment. I had promised to take my wife and children for an excursion down the river, as soon as the bank closed, and the youngsters eagerly remind ed me of my promise. I replied so savagely ami sternly, that the child ren made off in tears; my wife, com ing to sec what was the matter, far ed little better I must have had a sunstroke or something, she told me, and brought bandages and eau de Cologne. I flung it away in a rage, and wen1; out of the house. I must be doing something, I felt, snd I hailed a cab and drove to Thrap stow's lodgings. Mr. Ihrapslow wasa t coming home that night, his landlady told me; she thought he was away fcr a little jaunt; but she didn't know. He occupied the ground floor of a small house in Ecclesford street, Pitnlico two rooms opening into each other. I told the woman that would sit down aud write a letter. She knew me well enough, as I had freqnently visted Thrapstow, and she left me to myself. Then I be gan to overhaul everything, to try find out some clue to his where abouts. A few letters were on the chimney-piece; they were only cir culars from tradesmen. In the fire place was a considerable quantity of charred tinder. He had evidently been burning papers recently, and a quantity of them. I turned tbe tin der carefully over, spreading it out upon a newspaper. I found nothing legible except one little scrap of pa per, which the fire had not altogether reduced to powder, on which I saw the name Isabel shining with metal ic luster. Then I went to the bed room and searched that. Here, too, were evident preparations for flight; coats and other garments thrown hastily into cupboards, boxes turn ed out, an odd glove or two lying upon the dress'iDg-table. I carefully searched all the pockets for letters or other documents, but I found noth ing. The keys were left in all the receptacles; an instant of Charlie's thoughtfttlnees for others, in the midst of his rascality. Lying upon the wash-stand was a card, which was olau'.c upon one side, but on the other had the name of a photographer printed upon it. The card was wet, as if it had been soak ed in water; near the upper end of was a round, irregular cut which did not quite penetrate the card. had evidently once had a photo graph fastened on it; accordingly the card had been wotted to facili tate the removeal of the photograph, while the "ace of tbo potrait had ev idently been cut out, in order to place it in a locket or. something similar. It struck me at once that the pho tograph about which a man on the : a a of is T IT ,77 T ' . -i-v antly.

A rifr.shown into- a pretty drawing room eve of flight would take so much trouble, must be of a person very dear to him ; probably his sweetheart Although I had been intimate with Thrapstow, he had always been very reserved as to his own friends and associates, and I had no clue to guide me to any of them, except "the photographer's card. Re-entering my cab, I drove to the photographer's. There was no num ber or distinguishing mark upon the card, and the chances seemed faint that he would be abb to tell me any thing about it. Indeed, at first when the man found I wasn't a customer, he seemed little inclined to trouble himself about the matter. The prom ise of a fee, however, made him more reasonable, and he offered to let me see his book, that I might search for the name I wanted to find. But then I didn't know the name I wanted to find. It was unlikely that the photograph had been done for Thra tQW it had there would probably appear on tbe books only the U8ele8s record of his address, already known to me. Then the ghook his heft(L If j didnl know tbe name) it wa3 no look. -. tho -orj . ,t,;no. , aa;A. he sent hundreds out every month. What information could he possibly ,'giveme? Then I tried to describe the personal appearance of Thrap. stow. Again he shook his head. If, he had taken his likenss, he would not be likely to remember him; hardly even then, so many people passed through his hands. All this time he had been care lessly holding the card in his fingers, glancing at it now and then, and suddenly the idea seemed to strike him.

Away I went to Larkspur Road. Mrs. Maidmont's house was a small, comfortable residence, with bright windows, verandahs, gorgeous win dow-boxes, and striped sun-blinds, Mrs. Maidmont was at home, said a very neat, pretty-looking maid; and I sent in my card, with a mes sage; "On most important business.' The maid came back to say that i . ... . - iner mistress aia noi recognize name, but WOUld 1 walk mi 1 the was on the first floor, an eiuiiiiv lauy rose to greet me with old fashioned courtesy, at the same time with a good deal of uneasy curiosity visible in her lace. This was not the orig- nal of the photoraph, who was young and charming girl. "Madame," I said rapidly, "I bo- lieve that my friend Charles Thrap stow, is well known to you; now.it is of the utmost importance that I should ascertain where he is at this moment "Stay !" said the old lady. ;lYou are laboring under a complete mis take; I know nothing whatever of the gentleman whose name you men tion; a name I never heard before." Was she deceiving me? I did not think so. "Jferhap3 Miss Maidmont may know, I said eagerly. "Miss Maidmont is not likely to have formed any acquaintance with out he mothers knowledge, said Mrs. Maidmont with dignity. There seemed to be no alternative but for me to retreat with apologies. "I am very busy you see," went on the old lady, with a wave of the hand; and indeed the room, now I looked about me,I saw to be strewed with preparations for some lestive event, a ball perhaps, or from a wreath of orange blossoms that I saw peeping out of a milliner's box, more likely a wedding. Iva3 about to take my departure reluctantly, when a young girl, a charming young girl bounded into the room; she was the original of the photo graph. "Oh, mamma! she cried, "here s letter from poor Charlie to say he can't possibly come here to-night! Isn t it provoking.'' And 1 want to consult him about so many things." "Well, my dear Isabel," said the old lady placidly, "you'll have enough of his company after to-morrow." From which I judged that my surmise as to the wedding was correct, and that Charlie was the bridegroom elect. "By the way," she went on,"here's gentleman Isabel, who insists that we know a Mr. Charles I forget the name now." "Thrapstow," I interjected. "A Mr. Charles Thrapstow. You know of no such a person, Belle ?" "I know of no Mr. Charles but Charles Tempest," said Isabel. "It is singular, too, that the initial our friends should be the same. May I a&k you if have given your portrait taken by Blubore of Ken sington" "Upon my word," said Maidmont rising and sounding the bell, "this rather too much for a total stran ger. We don't know your friend, and we'don't know you. Susan show this gentleman," I cried, "with blue eyes, and yellow beard and mustache, and turned-np nose." "No more," cried Mrs. Maidmont. Am I to repeat once more, I know nothing about him?" What could I do under these cir cumstances but take my leave? In Susan, however, I found an unex pested ally. She had heard my part ing words of description, and she turned to me as we were descending the stairs, and said, Miss Isabel s young man is exacuy nice tuai. Half a crown a lew blandishments, which, under the circumstances, 1 think even my worthy spouse would have condoned, put me into posess ion of the facts. Miss Maidmont was really going to be married to morrow morning at St. Spikenard's Church to a Mr. Charles Tempest, a very good look ing young man whom, they had not known very long, but who seemed to be very well off. My description of my friend tallied exactly with Su san's of the bridegroom ; but the coin cidence might be merely accidental. a of be in if be "Had Miss Maidmont a photo graph of her lover?" I asked. She had, in her own room, it seem ed Susan couldn't get at it now with out suspicion ; but she promised to se cure it and bring it with her if I would meet her at nine o'clock at the corner of the street. I was punctual to my tryst; and at nine, Susan made her appearance witu a morocco-case containing: an excellent likeness of mv friend Charles Thrapstow, massive pin with topaz in it, and alL Jsow what was to be done? Should I go to Mrs. Maidmont, and tell her now sne was deceived in her daugh ter s lover ?' That would have been the best adapted to spare the feelinss of the Maidmonts ; but would it bring back the live thousand pounds? thought not. ;Mis3 Maidmont," I soliloquised, "will nnd some way to warn her lov er. Even robbing a bank may not embitter a girl against a sweetheart and no doubt she's over head and ears in love with Charley." Ho I de termined on a different plan. i rose early the next morning; dressed my self with care, put on a pair of pale prim-rose gloves, donned my newest beaver, and took a cab to St Spikenard's Xotting Hill. The bells were jangling merrily aa l alighted ai the church-door; small crowd had already gathered on the pavement, drawn together by that keen foresight of coming excite ment characteristic of the human species. "Friend of the bridegroom," I whispered to the verger, and I was for'Vwith shown into the vestry. i Clergyman was tucre already ana dhook hands with me in a vague kind of a way. "Not the bridegroom?" he said in a mild i.ntcrogative manner. I told him I w j only one of his friends, and we stood looking at each other in a comatose kind of way, till a lit tle confusion at the vestry-door broke the spell. "Here he comes! ' whispered some one; and next mo ment there appeared in the vestry, looking pale and agitated, but very nanasome. air. Charles ihrapstow. I had caught him by the ann and led him into a corner, before he re cognized who I was. When he saw me, I thought he would have fainted. "Don t betray me, ho whispered, I held out my hand with a signifi cant gesture. "Five thousand," I whispered in his ear. "iou snail nave it m nve min utes." "Your minutes are long ones, Mas ter Charles," I said. With trembling fingers he took out his pockt-book aad handed me roll of notes. "I meant it for you,Tom,vhe said. rerhap3 he did but we know the fate of good intentions. It didn't take me long to count over those notes; there were exactly nve thousand pounds. . "iNow, said l Master Charley .take yourself off!" "No more I will if you go." "She's got ten thousand of her own," he whispered. "Be off; or else" "No; I won't" said Charley, mak ing up hia mind with a desperate ef fort; "I'll not- I'll make a clean breast of it" At that moment there was a bit of a stir, and a general call for the bridegroom. The bride had just ar rived, people 6aid. He pushed his way out to the carriage, and whis pered a few words to Isabel, who fell back in a faint There was a great fuss and bustle, and then some one came and said there was an inform ality in the license, and that the wed ding couldn't come off tbat day. 1 didn t wait to see anything fur ther, but posted off to the bank, and got there just as the board were as sembling. I supposed the direc tors had got wind of Thrapstow's failure, for the first thing I heard when I got into the board room was old Venables grumbling out: "How about those Damascus bonds, Mr. Manager?" I rode rough shod over old Venables, end tyrannized consid erably ovtr the board in general that day, but I couldn't help thinking how close a thing it was, and how very near shipwreck I had been. As for for Thrapstow, I presently heard that, afther ail, he had arran ged with his creditors, and made it up with Miss Maidmont He had a tongue that would wind round any thing, if you only grve him time, and I wasn't much surprised at hear ing that the wedding-day was fixed. He hasn't sent me an invertation, and I don't suppose he will, and I certainly,shall not thrust myself for ward a second time as an uninvited guest. Chamber's Journal. Table Etiquette. The correct way is for the one who sits at the head of the table to help first, the first lady on the right; next the first lady on tho left; then the second Jady on the right; then the second lady on the left, till all the ladies at the table are served. Then repeat the attentions, in the same order, till the gentlemen are served. The gentlemen shonld always 'serve his wife before he serves the gentlemen at table, but not till all other ladies at the table are served. It is not etiquette to snatch at a plate before it reaches you, and be gin to eat as though famished, but leisurely, soially commence eatirg when the food is ready, and banded you. Politenes3 does not require that a person should sit at a table till from five to forty guest are serv ed, and till the food to be partaken has become cold. If a person is an expert or even a good carver, the fowl or meat should carved at the table while the guests are chatting and indulging social conversation; but if not the meat is to be haggled, and cut into chunks, and the joints only to discovered after several guesses, explorations and disappointments, all carving should be done on a side table, before the trueats are seated. The rule is to have a dinner pass off pleasantly with nothing to make the partakers nervous or unsettled. It ia not necessary to go into ecsta cies at the table over the pickles, the sweet cake, the coffee, the meat, etc., lest people think you neven had any thing to eat before, or set you down as a flatterer. But ari expression of ' approbation of the meal is not out of place, nor would it be out of taste to a quietly ask the host or hostess how such a dish wa3 prepared. t Remember this: It ia not polite or good breeding to make excuses to your guests at the table. To say that "the bread is not baked through," "the buscuits have too much salera- tus in them, "the potatoes are sog gy," "the coffee is poor and unset tled" "the meat is tough or poor," "the tog of the pepper box nevtr stays on," for that "my dinner" or "breakfast is not fit to eat" All such remarks are in very bad taste, and mean one of three thing3. That your food is not fit to eat, or that you wish to spoil the appetite of your guests by prejudicing them against what you set before them, or that you are fishing after forced com pliments. Ia entertaining guests, your are only required to do what you can conveniently to makethem feel at ease and to make them com fortable, that their stay may be pleas ant, and their visit ever remembered with pleasure. Never invite people to visit von unless you want and expect them to come. It is not right for one to be come a liar, simply to be fashionable or to invite persons to his home who are not wanted there, Pomeroy's Democrat. Private Letters From Cuba—A Reign of Terror Predicted. A prominent Cuban in this city received yesterday, by the Moro Cas tle, an interesting letter from Hava na, under date of November 12, from which he famished for the Tribune the following extract: The Spaniards here notwith standing the assertions of the Span ish newspapers that the failure of the Virginu3 expedition had been a death blow to the insurrection ap pears to be more frightened now than ever, and urge more strongltr than ever the utter the extermination of the Cubans. Yesterday several passengers from New York by the steamer City of New York, together with several friends who went on boaid to receive them, were detained by the Chief of Police, and are yet imprisoned in his office without be ing allowed to comunicate with any one outside. This action confirms my views, expressed to you in for mer letter, with regard to the allo cution of Captain General Jovellar, that a reign of terror is to be es tablished here once more. On the 4th inst. four of the passengers of the Yirginus were exeouted at San tiago de Cuba. On the 8th the cap tain and crew were also executed, and on the 12th twelve more of the passengers making the wholo num ber of victims to the brutal butchery fifty. During the night of the 10th the patriots attacked the town of Manzanillo, but no new3 of the at tack has been received, beyond that publisher in the papers here based on official reports, which say that at 11 :30at night the town was attacked on every side by a large force of in surgents, who made a vigorous as sault but were repulsed at three o'clock on the following morning. The accounts do not state the losses on either side; but it is known that the entire populace are greatly exci ted, that families are using every ex ertion to get away, many going on Doard the Spanish men-of-war lying in the harbor, not feeling safe ia the town, since the forces occupying it are not sufScent to repel the insur gents. We are indeed living under a reign of terror. THE CAPTAIN-GENERAL'S ORDERS NOT OBEYED. The following is an extract from a private letter received from Cuba on Monday: "On the 6th inst, at a P. M., Captain-General Jovellar telegraphed to Burriel that the Spanish Minister at Washington advised him not to shoot any more men. Said telegram was received by Burriel at Santiaso de Cuba early on the 8th. Oa tbe 10ch he shot the fifty-seven men. General Jovellar says that he com prehended the necessity of saving tne lives of these men, bat was over ruled." To Protect Sheep from Dogs. Dogs do not kill sheep because they are hungry and want to ean them for food, else a dog would kill one sh?ep, eat his fill, and be satis- fled for a while; whereas, a single dog will kill twenty sheep in one night They kill sheep to drink their blood, and they almost invariably seize them by the throat and open their jugular veins.

There is no single item in connec tion with the farmers business that attracts more his attention that more excites hi3 ire, or gives him greater satisfaction than good or bad roads, and yet there is no sub ject in which he ia more persistently perverse and careles3. Vvlio ever heard of two farmers agreeing upon the proper time to repair roads, or the best means of doing it? Road- mending with U3 is,in most instances, merely a spasmodic outbreak of misdirected labor, applied without a definite object, and regardless of the recognized laws of mechanics or na ture. An interesting meeting has taken place in the lobby of the old Fulton Street Church. An old Missionary, converted Roman Catholic Priest, and a converted Christian, met to gether. "This ia a strange meeting," said the Missionary. "We must have a little season of prayer togeth er,and this Chinaman shall lead us." So, up into the gallery they went and fell on their knees, aad this con verted Chinaman prayed for himself and the two others. It waa a strano'e prayer in a strange place and by strange little company. "Jesus ia the midst" was graciously mani- fested. What power but the divine could have gathered such a company, having only three in it, all having been trained so difiereutly, yet all united to Christ and to one another?'
