There were half-a-dozea of the girls together pretty creatures in the very first season of their long dresses the eldest not quite sixteen. They were all braids and puffs and puffy curls all loops and ruffles and ribbons all emilcs and dimples. It was the Sat urday before Valentine's day. in a certain year of grace, of which I will not give you the precise date, but less than ten wars aco and mrtrp than J five. Of the half dozen girls, two arc busy teachers now, two are married, 1 - !..: i v. .i vuc io pictyiug luuiuui i".; ucr uruiuer a little brood of orphan children, and the sixth, not less happy than the rest, has gone on to the next century, where they tell us she will never grow old, never be sick, nor sorry any more happy Bertha, whom, surely, God lovea. But. that day in February, none of them thought much about the future the present was enough, with its fun tou lruiiv, uu .. .i r -. ... , , ,,, , mi ures whicn girinooa noias aear. me fix were passing the long day together. Two ol them were sisters and belonged in one house, and tho rest bad come there to be with them; for they were all going to make valentines. They had made funny ones, and foolish ones tender ones, with just a little dash of satire in them poetic ones and '. prosy ones and at last it was dinner , time a feast of all the things that eohool-girls love. Roast turkey there 1 was, and cranberry jelley, and sweet ' potatoes, and squash, and then such ' pies and puddings, and nuts and rais f ins. How could they hold it all ? Ah, j they were hungry girls. At least they i were all hungry girls but Nelly Hunt, I and she ate scarcely any dinner at all, ! she was so busy thinking. 8he was t Bertha's sister, and this was her home I and Bertha's, and it was to the girl's own room that the little party went back again, after they had eaten and praised Mrs. Hunt's dinner. "What are you thinking about, Nell?" Bertha asked, sitting on the arm of Nelly's chair. "These valentines," Nelly answered slowly. "Well, surely they need not make you sober-they are absurd enough.' "Yes, and it's just because they are so absurd that tliey make rue sober. I was wondering why we couldn't just as well have said something to. help somebody to make somebody think to do some good." "Nelly's henries!" cried Kate Green, flippantly. "Miss Hunt as a moral reformer!" Nelly blushed from her pretty ears to the roots of her sunny hair; but her eyes shone clear, and there was a ring of earnestness in her voice as she answered : - ( "You can laugh it you will, but I mean what I say, and I'm going to try an experiment. I will write one boy a valentine, such as I think a girl ought to write, and I'll send it." "So you shall," Bertha said, gently Bertha always was peacemaker; "and we'll all go away ana see mamma and the baby while you write it. When it's done you must call us." "Yes. and you must show it to us," cried Kate Green, a- she went away; "that's only fair. We promised this morning to show each other all we ent, and we shan't let you off." Aud then the five fluttered away like a flock of birds, and Nelly was quite alone. Her task was harder than she had imagined. It is only the old, perhaps, who are sage in counsel by nature. At any rate, to give good advice did not come naiurally to pretty .Nelly. But she had an idea of what the wanted to say, and at last she got it said. She had written and re-written it, and finally concluded that she could do no better, and then copied it out into her neatest handwriting be fore she called the others. It was a little stiff, to be sure, and peachy and high-flown, but it sounded like a lofty effort and a complete success to the listening girls. This was what it said: ... .. "Mr Valentine. I'ou will have plenty of tine speeches and praises, and, perhaps, of fun and facey. from others, o I shall not give you those 1 who have but one interest in you. namely, that you should be the best boy and the best man which it is pos sible for you to become. If you are selfish, if you are indolent, if you are mean, you will never be happy in your own society, until you have sunk , so low that you don't kcow the differ- ence between goodness and badness, j But if you net oct to be a gentleman, and a man of honor, and a faithful worker, you will do good deeds and live a happy life, and be worthy the everlasting esteem f Your Valkntine." Nelly read it with rising color and a little quiver about her mouth, which Bertha understood; but she read it with firm voice and careful, deliberate accent. ? "Then." she said.wh.en she had fin ished, "I ehall bnrn up all the rest of my valentines, and send only this one; for it is what I mean, in earnest, and, as old Aunty Smoke says, Ef it don't do no good.it can't do no 113!." "To whom shall you send it, dear?" Bertha asked gently, a little subdued by Nelly's epistolary success. "I hadn't made up my mind," Nelly answered thoughtfully; "they all need it." "Oh, send it to Jack," cried Kitty Greene. "He boards with us. and he needs it bad enough. It ever a boy was full of his pranks Jack is. and if ever a boy tormented a girl's life out, Jack does mine." A color clear and bright a3 flame glowed on Nelly Hunt's cheeks. Had she had dark;eyed Jack in her mind all the while ? She only answered very quietly : "I don't mind. I had just as lief send it to Jack. That is, I'll send it to him if you'll promise, on j our sa cred honor, never in any way to let him know who wrote it." "Oh, I will true as I live and breathe I'll never tell him, and never let him guess if I can help it." "And all you girls?"" Nelly asked, with the pretty pink glow deepening in her cheeks. "Will you all prom ise?" And they all promised, for there was a sort of honest earnestness in Nelly's nature to which they found it natural to yield. So the valentine was directed - in Nelly's most neat and proper manner to "Mr. Jack Greene," and was dropped into the post-office with the rest of the valentines the girls had written that day. On the fifteenth, the fix girls were all together at school comparing notes and exchanging confidences. But Kitty Greene drew Nelly aside, and said, while they walked up and down the hall together, their arms around each other as girls will. I saw Jack get it Nelly. "Nelly's pretty cheeks glowed and her eyes shone, like stars, but she asked no questions. Indeed they were scarcely necessary, for Kitty was eager enough to tell her story. He got it. don t you think, alonsr with half-a dozen others, and he read them all betore be came to this one. I knew this, you know, by the shape of the envelope. When he came to it I saw him read it alt through, and then I saw him go back and read it again. L heard mm say to nimsen : I hat s an honest letter trom some lttle saint." . ; t "Then he came up to me and, held very busy with my valentines. Then he Mioke : "Do you know that handwriting, Kit?' "I felt like an awful little liar, but I had promised you. 1 stretched out mv h:mdy for it, and said, carelessly: "Why, ain't it Sue's?" "She is his sister, you know. So he thought I did not know who it came from, and he changed his mind, and put it into his pocket, and went off. When I teased him afterward to let me see it. he said : "No: there are some thinsrs a fellow would be a coward to show." "So I saw it hit him, and well it might. It was a tremendous letter, Nelly." And Kitty ended with a hug and a kiss, and a look of that loyal admira tion which a girl can give another girl now and then. When the spring came Jack Greene went away from Chester, and did not come back there anymore. No doubt Nelly Hunt would have forgotten his very existence but for the valentine, which she could not forget. She used to blush, as she grew older, to think how "bumptious ' it was. as she used to call it to herself. What was sue, that she should have undertaken to preach a sermon to that boy? What if he remembered it only to think how presuming it was, and to laugh at it? But, luckily, he did not kuow from whom it came; and with that thought ehe cooled her blushes. Nelly was twenty when Jack Green came back to Chester again. And now he C3me as a physician, just through his studies, and anxious to build up a practice. Soon his fame grew. His patients were among the poor & first, and he cured them; and then richer people heard of it, and sent for him. But, while he took all the patients that came, he never gave up his practice among those who most needed him. His praise was in all their mouths. There had never been anv doctor like this one. t . Nelly was Miss Hunt now for Bertha had gone away from her into the next country and Nelly's grief had made her gentle heart jet more fentle. and her helpful spirit yet more elpful. Toward night, one summer day, she had gone to see an old woman who had been her nurse once, and had found her very ill quite too ill to be left alone, and certainly in need of a physician. So Nelly tore a leaf from her memorandum-book and wrote on it a few lines, begging Dr. Green to come at once, and Ihen called to the first passerby and entreated him to take it to the doctor. It was scarcely half an hour before Dr. Greene came in quietly and grave ly. He attended to his patient with that careful consideration which made all those poor souls whom he visited adore him. Then he turned to Nelly. "Who will stay with her to-night?" he asked: "for, indeed, the hardly ought to be lef t alone." "I shall stay," was the quiet an swer. "Then come to the door with me, please, and let me give you your direc tions." Nelly followed, and stood there, in the eclt summer dusk a pietty pic ture with the wild rose flush dawn ing in her cheeks, and a new light kindling her blue eyes. She listened carefully to all his injunctions, and then turned as if to go But he put out a hand to detain her. "How very much I owe to you, he said. ' - ' "Yor, how?" And a deep, deep crimson dyed Nell'y face and throat. Iu that moment she thought of her "bumptious" valentine, which had no; crossed her mind before for a long time. ' He looked at her with a smile in his eyes, but with a face that pre served all its respectful gravity. He took a red leather case out of his pocket, and from the cae he took the very old valentine, which Nelly re membered so well. Then he produced the brief note she had written that afternoon; and still there was light enough left in the day to see them by, t as he held them side by side. "Your hand has matured somewhat since this valentine was written," he remarked quietly; "but some of these letters I should know anywhere. No one could deceive me." "I did not suppose you had kept that foolish thing," Nelly said, with a pitiful little quiver in her voice, as if she were just on the point of bursting into tears. "I am so ashamed." Dr. Jack looked at her a moment, as she stood there in the waning light, a lovely, graceful girl from whom any man might be proud to win een ,a passing interest. So this was the wo- j man, the thought of whom he carried in his heait for years ! If he had ever done any good thing, he was paid for it tn the satisfaction ol that hour. "Are you sorry," he asked slowly, "that you have helped one man to be his best self ? Those words of youra were to me like the voite of my in most soul. Since then this paper has never left me, nor have ever I ceased to strive to be worthy of the esteem of my unknown 'valentine. If ever I have been generous instead of selfish, brave instead of cowardly, strong in stead of weak, it has been because I have remembered the words written here, and meant to live in their spirit Are you sorry for that? or do you grudge me the dear pleasure of thank ing you "No, I'm not sorry, nor do I grudge you anyl hing; but it was a girl s freak. and I am not worthy of so much praise and honor. "It was a good girl's good inten tion," he said almost solemnly. "'Let us be thankful that it succeeded." Nelly went back to the bedside of the old woman with a fluttering heart. How strange it seemed to think this sick woman was old enough to have outlived all anxieties except those about her pains and her supper. I fad not 6he been young once? and had no one ever looked at her as Dr. Jack looked ? . The next morning he came again. His medicine, a night's sleep, Netty's care something seemed to have given t the poor, old patient a fresh leace of lite. There was no need that .fNelly should stay with her any more; but she went to see her daily, and it was curious how often Dr. Jack's visits happened at the same time. One night the doctor had left his horse at home, and he and NeIIy walked away together Tb. oT"the toft South wind, and even the old women; for Nelly, woman-like, was struggling desperately to keep Dr. Jack ftom saying what she desperate ly wanted to hear. But, at lust, it came a half-blunt, half-awakened speech, yet with Dr. Jack's honest heart in it : "I've lived all these years just to earn your esteem, and now I find I don't care a thing about that unless I can also win your love." I think Nelly 'p answer must have satisfied him, for she is Mrs. Jack Green now; and that Valentine worn and old, but choicely framed always hangs over the doctor' study table. JEWELS FROM THE ORIENT. The Egyptian Holer's Royal fc.ift to den. Sherman's Danghter. The wedding gift from the Khedive of Egypt to the daughter of General Sherman reached New York by steam er on Tuesday, and was on private exhibition in the Collector's parlor of the Custom House yesterday after noon. The present is a parure of diamonds, necklace and eardrops, said to be the most magnificent and valu able in this country. The necklace is composed of four strands of diamonds, each ol which is a brilliant. Not one of them is worth less than $1,000. The chain is studded with gems, and they are set eo closely together as to hide the gold. There are so many of them that Deputy Collector Lydecker tired in the count. He counted 350, which is only about half the number. The strands are joined by ten immense clenes, -each of which is , encir stod by smaller gems. The one in front is the size of a hickory nut, and is worth 20,000. Pendant from the front is a festoon of brilliants with five big pear-shaped stones of finest water lustre hanging from it. The ornaments from the ear are single stones equally as large as the rest. The entire set is appraised at from -260 000 to S300.000. The case for the jewels is plain mo rocco, without inscription. As soon as the Secretary of the Treasury orders a free permit for them under the spe cial act of Congress, they are to te delivered to the Turkish minister, and by him pre-ented to the fair bride on behalf of the Egyptian potentate. N. Y. Sun. Prasing Ornamental Trees. It is the growth of the side branch es which promotes expansion in the diameter of the main stem, and the lower ones must only be removed by degrees; when those higher up appear sufficiently numerous for the young tree to bear the loss t)f the lower ones with impunity. If a young bow shows a propensity to grow out of place, or to an undue length, so as to require repression, this may be effected while in a young stage of growth, by simply pinching off its extremity, thua arrest ing its further extension. The proper time to prune trees is between the cessation of their growth in autumn and the movement of, their sap sin spring. The amputation during sum mer of the woody parts of trees is in jurious to them in many ways, and in many species produces a copious dis charge of sap (termed "bleeding"), which considerably weakens them. But the process of trimming hedges, or where there is a fancy for such things) clipping evergreens into fan tastic shapes, is performed in summer, as this promotes a second growth from the parts that are left untouched, which make? the foliage and f pray denser. A. Mongredien, in English Garden. Died. February 3d. 1S75. ' in the Home for the Friendless, of typhoid pneumonia, Mart Ccxmxgham, aged la rears. Tiree months ago, a young girl a stranger in our city inquired of a lady on the street if she knew where Mrs, . lived, saying "1 have walked until I am so tired, I am afraid I eb&Jl never find her." "Come with me, I will take you Lo her," was her answr. . . - We shall never forget the day when we first looked into the sweet child like fee of "little Mary," and listened to hei story. An orphan child, who could scarcely remember a mother's love or caressing hand on her fair young head, betrayed and forsaken with ao friends who could care for her. A kind-hearted stranger had provided the means to send her from a distant town to seek an asylum in the Richmond "Home." A shrinking, fragile girl, wan and weary, with yearning, wistful eyes,' searching strange faces for comfort and cheer for the aching heart, and rest for the weary, tired feet ! We soon learned to love her. She was beautiful to look upon, sweet and gentle in disposition She was "our little Mary." There were times when, as ehe would lean upon us with trusting confidence, we looked into her face and felt that be neath all that young heart was slowly, surely breaking. When attacked by disease, she sank rapidly nd soon passed into the arms of death. We trust the Good Shep herd who has taken the nhild-mother to Himself, will temper the winds to the helpless babe left to OCR care. ., . - S. Brown, or Krnlnt kj. Some cariosity has been excited by reason of the fact that Mr. John Young Brown denounced General Butler as an outlaw. Now an outlaw is "one excluded from the benefit of the law, or deprived of its protection." Whatever else General Butler may be, no one has hitherto deemed him a person deprived .of the protection of the laws. Wherein, then, lies the significance or truthfulness of 31 r. Brown's rtmark? We have discov ered the secret. As was attested by his letter read in Thursday's debate, Mr. Brown was, and no doubt is" still, an ardent Confederate. Whether he was a military chief Lain in the rebel army, we shall not attempt to say, be- causet Hke asothojnay have been a prowess, without any jtcioO" 3 "I'l side of the line being aware of the fact, and our experience with Gordon of the Senate teaches us to be careful how we speak of ma who may have achieved distinction in this stealthy manner! But whatever may be Brown's military history, be was cer tainly a very enthusiastic rebel. As such, he no doubt believed iu the Confederacy, and in the proclamations of its head, Mr. Jefferson D.ivis. Re garding these as law, Mr. Brown had no difficulty in arriving at the conclu sion that General Butler was an out law, for Mr. Jefferson Davis pro claimed him such in 1SJ2, and it is questionable, in view of the recent elections, whether Mr. Davis is not to be regarded as autnonfy! It will be remembered that General Butler did a number of things in 1S62-3 that greatly incensed the good and great men of the Confederacy. T j. L S - rur instance, aie captured -ew vr leans, and when Mr. Mumford, after being warned against such an act, tore down the United States flag and tram pled it under his feet. General Butler quietly ordered that Mumford be tak en out and hanged. No more flags were torn down! lhe ladies ot that city had a pleasant way of spitting in the faces of Union soldiers on the sidewalk, and after enduring this pa tiently for several weeks. Gen. Butler issued an order reciting the facts, and saying that women guilty of" such gross conduct in the future should be treat ed as "women of the town, plying their avocation." No more insults of this character were offered. These act3 and his recommendations regard ing fugitive slaves roused the rebel government to desperation. Some thing roust be done. Something was done, as is shown by the following : RETALIATORY PROCLAMATION BY JEF FERSON DAVIS, PRESIDENT OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES. "Whereas fete etc.. recitine the above facts); now, therefore, I, Jeffer son Davis, President of the Confeder ate States, and in their name, do pro nounce and declare the said Benjamin F. Butler a felon deserving capital punishment. I do order that he be treated as an OUTLAW, and that in the event ol his capture the officer in com mand of the capturing ieree do caue him to be immediately executed by hanging And whereas, the efficers under the command of the said But ler have been in many instances active and zealous agents in the commission of these crimes, and no instance is known of their refusal to participate in the outrages above narrated, tbere fore, I do order that all commissioned officers in the command ot the said Benjamin F. Butler be declared not entitled to be considered as soldiers engaged in honorable warfare, but as robbers and criminals deserving death, and that they and each of them be, whenever captured, reserved for exe cution. ' "In testimony whereof I have signed these presents, and caused the seal of the Confederate States to be affixed thereto, at the city of Richmond, on the 23d day of December, 1862. By the President : : Jefferson Dayis. J. H. Benjamin, Sec'y of State." What more natural than th t an ardent and unrepentant rebel like Mr. John Young Brown should regard the proclamation of Davis as still in force against General Butkr, . and take occasion to remind the country of this fact f Inter-Ocean.

A new hotel is being planed far Newport. - Adelaide Phillip's benefit takes place in May. A San Francisco paper in a review of the loaal fisheries relates the fol lowing as one of the occurrences of last year : ; Last season one of the boats was out ou the ocean near Point de Rev, , when in the afternoon a sudden squall ' came on and the waves ran so high that one came aboard and nearly filled the boat with water. So much was she loaded and so near sinking did she come, that the three men who were in her had all they could do to avoid being swept overboard. The wind blew hard and chilly and the poor fellows were nearly frosen, but they held on to the boat hoping that succor would come from tone source.. When itwaa nearly dark one of the men bade his comrades good bye, aud with a groan of despair sank out of sight beneath the waves. The other two held on through that dreary night, but early in the morning an other one said to the survivor, "f can not hold on; I too, must go." In tel- : ling it the survivor said, "1 was laying on mv breast across the bow and saw him as he sunk away far down in the clear, deep waters. He said also that soon after his last comrade disap peared the sun came up, and as the sea had gone down the warm rays beating on bis back infused warmth and lite in him so that he was enabled to cling fast. About 1 o'clock the schooner Haskell came along, picked him up and brought himself and the boat into the harbor. A rather singu lar part of the story is that after being at the dock for about ono month, the same boat, with the same, man and two others, went again outside to the same fishing ground, and about the 8'Uuo place where she was picked up when water-logged. The fishermen saw a schooner bottom side up, with five or six men clinging to the keel. They immediately went to the rescue and found that it was the Haskell, the identical schooner that had saved this boat ani one of the men. She had been her-elf capsized in a squall. Her crew were saved by the very boat that had been saved by her.

It is a no'orit ous fact that the only ground upon which the radical conservatives of Louisiana oppose the compromise is, that any settlement of the pending difficulties will damage the pr.-pec-t of the Democratic party North, by removing one source ol agitation.
