Il was a Warm odorous evening in early S* pteinber «Daylight had it->i ret wholly departed, and in the soft, gray' ether of approaching twi light, the gardens of Hoseland lay like an enchanted domain, still and beautiful. Here ing foliage gleamed a white form, and the serene features of marble Floras and Nioohes looked out upon the seem*. I there among thebloom footstep sounded, and through the gates a man came slow ly, with his gaze directed at the mansion before him. He was lint 11 youth, nor yet ar rived at nil age to lie termed elderly. He was unusually handsome, with a dark, poetic fare and the air of a Then prince. "I must speak my mind to-night," lie thought, as lie approached the hou-e. "I have lingered here too long already. Yet when I thought to unburden my heart to lier, some thing held me buck ; there has nl iiitaugilile influence in her manner liait checked me; yet i love lier, I love herns I have never loved before, and will never love again. Ob, Violet, Violet; I must know the truth !" A faint color had risen to ids cheek, and his eyes glistened. He had reached tlie steps of tlie man sion, and as lie mounted, a strange cry floated out on tlie air, a weird, wailing sound, that made him shiver involuntarily. He entered hastily and saw, leap ing up the broad stairs, a dwarfed form, that turned when it reached tlie upper landing, and looked back at him. The face was strangely distorted, and tlie eyes gleamed luridly in tlie semi-darkness. At that instant Violet Winthrop appeared, and this form above vanished. "Has anything happened ?" asked Bruce Douglass! anxiously, for her beautiful face was pale and the laces on her breast rose and fell with her rapid breathing. "No, nothing; come in," she an swered, and they entered the par lor together. "Oil, Mr. Douglas, I knew I could not keep my secret from yon !" she faltered, "but remember I never asked you to come here." "No, you did not, Mrs.Winthrop," he answered, puzzled by her manner as much as her words. "I came here because I found pleasure in your company, because I-" "I should never have consented," she interrupted, a faint color rising in lier cheeks. "You saved my life, Mr. Douglas, and therefore I was grateful ; yet I should have thanked you and let you go your way. But l was so lonely here, I thought 1 would find in you a sympathetic friend." been And so you have—more than a "Vi friend," Haiti Bruce, earnestly, ölet, I love yon ! let me share your sorrow—lie my wife !" Heeaught lier jeweled hands in mi aidant clasp, and leaned nearer, but she drew irom him witli an ex pression of horror ; lier blue eyes darkened, lier lips paled. "Mr. Douglas, what are you say ing ?" she asked, horsely. "You ask me to he your wife—me! Oh, you do not know —I nevor told you !" "No, you did not tell me, but I have heard. Violet, I know you have sacrificed yourself for tlie sake ofa brother who lost his reason— tlie man I saw—but I love you, my darling, and-" "Stop !" She rose and stood before him, and never had lie seen such misery depicted on a human countenance that upon tlie lovely face of Vio- j let Winthrop. Bruce Douglas, that man is my as husband," she said in low, intense tones ! "I married him by my pa rents wishes, when I was little more than a child, lie was dissipated, and I was miserable; then lie met witli tlie accident that deformed his body and wrecked his mind. For three years I have concealed my se cret sorrow from the eyes of tlie world. You love me, you say. What rigid have you to utter those words ? Have I ever given you a word or a look that your wife, if you had one, could not give another? Oil, if I had dreamed of this !" "You are not to blame, Vi—Mrs. Winthrop," lie answered, humbly "My 1 ovc lias made me presump tious. Forget what I have said." "Yes, I have been to blame that I ever reeieved you ; it has taught me a lesson," she she said, coldly. Let I us part now—forever. lie rose, and with one glance into her cold, calm face, went out into the gathering darkness, feoling as if his whole life was wrecked. As he passed through the gîtes and struck into the path that led by the cliffs to the village, an uneasy feeling came upon him. once and saw something that seem ed more substantial than a shadow a few paces behind him, but when he spoke no one answered him. Yet behind him was creeping a dwarfed ligure, with a dark, demon ical face, and something that glitter ed in his clinched hands. Bruce Douglas went on unconsci ously, but as lie reached the cliffs lie paused and looked out over the wa ter. A premonition of coming evil hung over him. Nearer came that lient form, stepping lightly, yet keeping his baleful glance fixed on tlie unsuspecting man. He leaped forward suddenly, witli his weapon raised to strike him down, but at that instant a women's cry rang out, and liruee, startled, wheeled about. Just ill time ! His ussailant jostled him roughly, but that side step sa ved his life ; and, carried by the force of his own attack, the deformed maniac was hurled over the e Igo of the cliff. His weird cry cleft the air as Vio let Winthrop rushed upon the scene. She grasped Bruce's hand emotional ger life the the er. in lie turned her an she in was l 1 a ly. "You are saved !" she cried, in to nes that were a revelatien to him. At the foot of the cliffs lay a quiet, huddled form to whom Death had mercifully coma. And after all her years of sorrow, Violet Winthrop found her release at last.

And why did he leave Laura so? Why, he saw that Laura was a languislisng, delicate girl, subject to sick headaches, sensative nerves and uncertain tempers ; and knowing What a life-long trial is a fretful, sickly wife, he transferred his atten- j lions to lier chearful, healthy cousin | Ellen.

There is no nobler trait in the character of man than heroism, that element of his being which leads him to confront the greatest of dan ger in his defence of what he be lieves to he the right, life as with winds that blow across the horizon changing with every circumstance and every thought and feeling. Now they leave a clear sky, beautiful and serene, now a storm cloud gathers and casts a gloom over the landscape, and now a hurricane which rocks the earth with its pow er. The time has not long since passed when physicul courage on the part of our first settlers was a matter of necessity as with their rude implements and limited know ledge they subdued the wilderness and made fertile the desert places in the very presence of the hostile savage. So it has been ; also in the various conflicts that have taken It is with as place in tlie hiütory of our country. But physical courage is not tlie only evidence of heroism. Tlie man who conquers and governs himself is quite as much a hero under some circumstances as lie who faces tlie arrow of the savage or tlie bullet of tlie foe. He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty ; and lie that ruleth his spirit, than lie that taketli a city. When tlie liassions are,held in subjection they are harmless, hut whi n they bear sway over the minds of men they subvert all truth and beauty in tlie soul. An army in time of peace encamped in the field or parading tlie streets of a city is harmless, but wlieu pillaging the city, or engaged in fearful conflict 011 tlie battle field, it carries devasta tion to that city and leaves the field a barren waste, the passion of men, like the waters of a river, ocoasion lly overflow their boundaries, and the maddened waves rush furiously on, carrying with them the seeds of destruction and ruin ; hut the truly heroic «teni the tide, oppose tlie rag ing element, and with resistess en ergy and a child like faith that nev er falters stand firm until the flood subsides and flows smoothly on in j Ug llccugt0Illed channel, leaving the | irjt go _ 0 purc an(1 holy, that it seems transferred from earth and its triumphs to heaven and its glories. Men of ancient times did not light so fiercely and desperately that their deeds of heroism might be rewarded, but that they might not be slaves. So men can only be come true men by being brave, and boldly meeting the stern realities of life and every thing not in strict ac cordance with the admonitions of the silent teacher within their bos j 01 ns, and prosecuting energetically, I what ever will conduc'd to tlie high est good—to their greatest worth. ! Truth is tlie main essential to liero I ism ; no trait in human character j strengthens man more than that of ! truth. If you would have tl ! pect, confidence, and admiration of j rt p c i ng8es Q f people—be true. True j heroism does not belong to man j alone. No man in the humbler sphere of life in which she presides I as queen, is often more of | than the man wl n s her in tlie Iiurly-biir j ly of business and conflict with the . I world assumes to lai lier superior. Cornelia was proud of her sons, but tlie world has quite as great rea son to be proud of Cornelia, is it tlie most demonstrative strife parting were the greatest heroes all. Who shall measure the depths j of woe through whicli they passed, and who shall he able to estimate N • r ikos the hero. The young men who in the Hush of youth rush to battle are brave and heroic and deserving of all the praise our country may bestow upon them, but the sainted mothers who with which hearts bleeding and eyes blinded ; ' w ith tears gave up their boys to the country with a God bless you at of the countless hours ot suspense j which hung over them like tlie ? shadow of a cloud until tlie good It news of peace enme and their sons were restored to the arms. We all may be heroes even in the hum blest position of life. Life is real, life is earnest. We may all stand up in defense of tlie right. A claim to heroism is not the exclusive right of either tlie rich or the poor, of the prince or the peasant, of either the king or the pauper. It is tho right of every man who chooses to protect I tlie weak, to defend the right and he true to himself, to his fellowmen and to his God. "I'm going to leave, mum." What for?

Our virtues spring from our needs our vices fr.ua our luxuries. Every day is full of a most im pressive experience. Somebody lias said "the sinner's asylum is tlie henrt of God." No fountain is so small but that heaven may be imaged in its bos om. Little duties are pins to fasten the mantle of God's love securely about us. A 11 ounce of generous praise will do more to make a man your friend than a pound of fault. Riches take wings, comforts van ish, hope withers away, but love stays with us. When the good man dies the tears are shed which he in life pre vented from flowing so freely. There are words that can seperate hearts sooner than sharp swords.

If the old piece of coal will only return all will be forgiven and no questions asked. Uncle Clinton, who is a power among the people on the plantation, is dissatisfied with the color school teacher. Upon being asked the reason of his dissatisfaction, he said: "Da, bless you miss, dis teacher's a no-account teacher, nohow. My Grant he went to de las' teacher we had, three weeks and got a very good edgercation. But my Sis and Tip have been to dis one two days, and dey ain't l'arned deir letters." Bishop Templar related a story of his youthful son (aged six) at a re cent temperance gathering. The story has a profound moral not un connected with hereditary disposi tion. A little while ago this terrible infant was walking on I'utney Com mon with his nurse when they "came to a drunken man," to quote his lordship's phrase. The boy was shocked, and said to his nurse: "I should like to be King without any Parliament. I would make the stuff' a guinea a drop, and then it would be too dear for them to buy it." There is a budding autocrat! First Dame—. How do you like your new minister ?

"He did?" *' Yes, and lie was pre sent at all the mite societies, church sociables, class meetings,e*c.,besides being at six evening parties given by members of the congregation. His wife told me he had not been ill his own home half an hour a day except at meal time, and the even ing entertainments and bedside visiting had kept him so late lie only got about four hours' sleep." "How noble! He must be a treasure of a minister." "Yes, in that re spect we can't complain, but most of us are much dissatisfied with him, and I think we will make a change very soon." "Why, what's the matter?" "Oh, lie preaches sucti poor sermons." He Mr. Walter G. Murphy, of New York city, has discovered that fish can be kept alive a considerable time without change of air or water by placing them in a receptacle partly filled with water, and hermet ically sealing the same. They are unaffected by changes of tempera ture, and quite healthy and lively on being released from the jar, while others placed in jars "quite full of wuter, or in jars open and exposed" to the air in a short time. This dis covery will save great expense and trouble to lisli commissions, and others, who wish to transport fish in a live condition from one country to another. Muscular Christianity has been well represented in the colonies. The story of bishop Selwyn's en counter with the hush men is well known. Hisliop Goo, of Melbourne, seems to have had a somewhat sim ilar experience in his younger days. When a curate, a parishioner styled Jim the Slogger called at the par sonage asking him to baptize the baby. Accordingly, the bishop re paired to Jim house, but wus sur prised on being admitted, to see Jim lock the door and pocket the key. "Be you the parson come to sprinkle my kid ?" he asked. On the bishop's assenting, he continu ed : "Yer can't sprinkle that kid till you and me has had a fight, parson. The unfortunate parson protested, but finding protest useless, took the hull by tlie horns and "stood up" to Jim. The battle went for the of Bishop ; and Jim, pulling himself up from the floor, muttered : "He's the parson for me ; he shall sprinkle my kid." The Bishop was forth with proceeded with, and given to understand that Jim took to church-going from that day.
