As far as my ob servation reached, he had not only shown no preference for Dorothy, but paid her less attention than, in my opinion, she had a right to ex pect; it annoyed me exceedingly to become aware that I was an utter stranger to my son's inner life.- J thought him more than usually silent at dinner, but then .Zwas con strained and heavy-hearted. As soon as the servant was gone, 'said: 'Pray, Charles do you consider me an inquisitive man ?' u 'Certainly not,' he replied. 'No man less so, I should say.' " 'Have I ever,' I demanded, 'shown any distrust of you, or any disposition to hamper you by un necessary exercise of paternal author ity ?' "Lie looked amazed, and answered : 'Xo, sir, ."have always felt, when comparing my position with other men's, that Xwas singularly fortu nate in my father.', " ' That's well I have the less difficulty, then, in putting a question to you. What's the meaning of a letter addressed by you to Dorothy, which, without blame being due to anvbody, I saw this morning at Crbssford Post-Office ?' "Surprise, displeasure and a sort of doggedness were in the counte nance; he turned away from me, and some seconds they seemed to nie minutes passed before he said : 'It would never have occurred to me that there was anything out of the way in my writing to her; we have been brought np like brother and sis ter.' '"But why walk six miles to post yonr letter ? Z should not have thought anything about seeing a let ter from you to Dorothy on the ta ble or in the bag, though I should have reminded you that you could not correspond with her with propri ety. You might, of course, have written a casual note to her about a book, or some arrangement.' Why infer, he asked, that the let ter you have sent was not one of this character? In the first place, I replied, be cause you took the trouble to post it where it was in the highest degree improbable that I should see it; and lastly for your evasions. Then there was a long pause, and I thought he was determined not to speak. Charles, I said sternly, Dorothy has been so much among us, that I am responsible for whatever, involv ing her happiness or misery, is con nected with any of us. As your fath er, and in place of her father, I demand what relation exists between you and her, which leads you to you writing to her clandestinly. If I cannot elicit it from you, I shall have an immediat explanation with her. He looked badgered, ill-tempered even, and said hurriedly: I wrote to Dorothy to ask her to marry me some day. Ask her to marry you! I exclaim ed. I put aside your gross disre spect in ignoring me in so important a matter, and remind you that you have not taken your degree, that you are wholly dependent on me, and that, during my lifetime, unless I as sist yon, you will, in all probability. have nothing better than a country curacy. I suppose it was not unnatural to expect that you would help me, sir, as you are very fond of Dora. This he said in a tone which soft ened me a little. After all, thought I, he is very young. Pray what an swer do you expect Iroin herr 1 in quired. I was relieved to find that she was innocent of aught that would have lowered her in my eyes. She was lost to me forever, whether she accepted Charles or not, bnt she was worthy of the place I had given her in my neart, and would have given 1 1 "VTT"i t . tier in uiy uuuse. y linoui glVinj him time to reply, I went on: have too good an opinion of her to believe that she will answer you witnout consulting ner mother. I begged her to say nothing to to any one. Then either, I rejoined, you are more ignorant of the world than I believed even a reading man could , , -. . De, or you nave endeavored con sciously to lead her to act as a modest girl should not. Pray what reason did you give for such a re quest? This: that, in the event of her tak ing me, some years must elapse be fore I could marry; and I should dislike being pointed at as. an en gaged man all that time; and that if she refused me, it was no business of any one else. His cool selfish ness exasperated me. I got up and walked about the room. Good Heavens I ejaculated; and you are a very young man, and my son. Of course, I did not put it quite so oroadly as that, he observed, rather apologetically: but vou exDect con fidence, and I am not a man of many words. I really took pains to write a proper letter, and I think succeed ed. 1 always had a notion that I should never marry. A college life had been my object since I was old enough to have one, and an rule, I find women a bore; but Dorothy is different from all other women I know suits me, in fact. I thought I should like to make sure of her, and would not mind waiting for her. You see, it could all go on quietly enough, I should see her here a great deaL I set my son down as utterly ab normal, and I think I disliked" him for a minute, but I remembered his poor mother's loving pride in him as a little child, and relented. Have you any reason for expect ing that Dorothy will accept you? I inquired. He leaned back comfortably, put his hands in his pockets, and said: Not exactly; but 1 do not see why she should not; she is very fond of us all. At any rate I'll let you know as soon as I get an answer. With that he seemed to consider the conference over, and that he was at liberty to leave the room. I was glad when he was gone. I puz zled myself very much as to how Dorothy would act not as to wheth er she would accept Charles it nev er occurred to me to discuss that with myself. Would she tell her mother? Undeniably she would wish to do so, for she was openness itself; but she would be unwilling to annoy Charles, because he was my son, if for no other reason. Would she write to me? or would her father or mother write? Unless they sent a special messenger-and they guarded conscientiously against needless small expense!) here could be no letter till the third day. In the in terval, there was no perceptible change in Charles' ways, except that he was constrained when we were alone. I imagined that he feared that I would renew the subject, but I was not at all inclined to do that. I had discovered a great gulf, un suspected before, between my first born and myself. My life was plac ed in a new groove, and did not perhaps never would run easily in it, and that odious gossip had given the first impetus. I believe my hands trembled a litttle when I unlocked the post-bag on that third morning. There was no letter for Charles, but a note from Mrs. Dalton, asking me to call as soon as I could. I gave it to him without a remark.' He put it in his pocket, and did not open it in the room. Soon after breakfast I walked to Furzeham. Dora came to me in the little study, and again I felt how changed I was. Up to that time we had held out both hands mutually and simultaneously, and I had kissed her as heartily and nat urally as if she had been Anna: now, my own secret conscience ness made that impossible and the something expressed by me, or some thing which 1 did not fathom in her, held her back. Coloring and looking distressed, she gave me one hand, saying, it was very good of you to come so soon, but I thought you would. I made an effort to be playful, and rejoined: You know I have ut terly spoiled you kitten! The smile this invoked was a poor pitiful spectre. Come I went on; I know why you sent forme, so you need not worry yourselfabouthowto begin. Charles has told me. Oh! I am so glad. But why did he not do so before he wrote to me? It would have saved me great un happiness. I do not know if "I ought not to have Vpnt his secret, though I should have felt quite guilty hid ing anything, especially such a thing from mamma; but I could not. The letter was taken to her, and of course, she has always opened and read my letters as if they were her own. Quite right; the longer she does so the better. Charles had no right to make such a request. I ni sur prised that he did not know bet ter. But I am sorry to have done any thing disagreeable to any ot you. i am so fond of Anna: and you have always, always been so very kind to me. There is no harm whatever done, Dorothy; circumstances helped you out of a difficulty, as they oiten do the innocent. Then we were both silent. I saw that she wanted to go on, but did not know how. and for myself, I had a sort of fear of what I should hear but, I helped her. Well. Pussv. I asked, what are you going to say to Charles? I do not know: and she looked miserable. I have always thought that you were very clear in your views, and distinct in stating tnem. Yes; I knew my own mind quite well; but she stopped and seemed about to cry. I do not know what to do, she went. on. Do you mean that you do not know whether you like Charles well enough to accept him or notr O no: but there are sc many dif ficulties. This was said hardly above her breath. . Do you mean the long engage rnent. and so on? She blushed with vexation, and an swered; O dear! no. But I am so afraid of hurting your feelings, or disDleasinsr vou. 1 so wish it had never happened. But my dear child, what could there be displeasing to me or inju rious to my feelings, in your being attatched to my son? I think it would be an an indirect compliment to me. She hardly let me finish, but spoke very earnestly. Did vou ever think that I No; you never have supposed that; vou must have been as much sur- nrifrl as I was. If anything of that kind had been going on. must have been the most deceitful creature possible: but I am afraid of your thinking that Charles would not have asked me, if I had not en couraged him. 1m am sure 1 should sav so of any one in my circum stances. I hope the lesson will make me charitable. I have really never thought about Charles at alL It no more entered my head that he thought about me in that way than that you did. I winced. She had been speaking so fast that I could not get in word. . I was sitting in what they called humorously her father s easy chair; she was opposite on a low seat, leaning forward, with her little hands clasped in her lap, her pretty brunette complexion heightened, her eyes sparkling, her countenance ex pressing that she was trying to put in words. Dorothy, I said, you will grieve me very much, if vou imagine for one moment that it would be possi ble for me to doubt your candor. I am sure you were as much surprised as 1 was. To tell you tne truin, my dear little girl, I never gave Charles credit for so much good taste, and it had never entered into my head to thin of his marrying at all. She looked, however, only partial ly relieved when she returned: 1 am glad you understand me I hope you always will. And is that all you have to say to me, Dora? No; I want to know what I am to do? That must depend entirely on your own feelings. I am quite anx ious for your happiness and for my own children's. Do vou love Char ley? She only replied by tears; and I begau to consider if she had a secret fondness for him, and thought I might object to her want of money, so I went on. If. you do, 1 consider him the luckiest fellow in the world for, though he is our own boy, he is not worthy of you. I will tell you all, She said, wiping her eyes. 1 do nut luve bun ; I am sure l never should love liim well enough to marry him ; but I do not lika to say so to you ; it seems so ungracious. In the depth of the meanness hidden in my heart, I was delighted that she had spoken thus to my own son, but I smoth ered the feeling, and walked to the win dow to look out. I am afraid you think me ungrateful, she resumed. That would be uttcrahly unreasonable. No one can command his heart. You see that I do not think I could make Charles happy it 1 married lilm without loving him ; and.it could -not be rhrht, either could it T Certainly not. I hope he will seo it all as you do. Ifnot.lt cannot be helped. He has managed very badly. Toung ladies are n Jt usually gained by a coupo do main. In my young days, men went thought fully and carefully to work, venturing on little graduated attentions which had au Infinite charm in themselves, and were sinful feeli-rs. Whatever be CharU-s disappointment he bus no one to blame but himself. Im am so glad you think so' this was aid In her own natural manner and .- yet it is a great shame to say. so. But You do understand don't you?' Or course I did, and told her so. Then she asked if I would tell Charles for her. I cotupressed my lips, laid my head on one side, and tried to look as ii I were considering. What does mamma say? I inquired. She thinks I ought to answer his letter. It is due to him, she says. I was of her mother's opinion. Of course, I did not see her letter, and never recurred to the subject aftei wards. Charles asked me the question when I re tured home, m;tde no remark on Doro thy's decision, which. I knew rtaclu'd In in next day, and, bore his rejection with the apparent impossibility which hafl cbaracterzed his wouimr. He took his fellowship, and settled into a con scientious, respectable, somewhat pomp ous don. 1 do not thiuk he ever met Dorothy subsequently. It was a pity lor the girl, and she w as evidently a nice girl, observed Jack ; and her lather and mother must haye been disappointed. No doubt. When Dalton was dying two years later, feorothy was very heavy at his heart. ' To think ot that bright, pretty, biah spirited creature, chilled drilled, kept under, and I have seen girls as sweet, lively, and good as she is, lacerates me, he Slid to me one day. " And then I told him that with God's help, she never should be ; that I had ta ken forethought about wtiat would lie best ; and that if Mrs. Dalton Hfjreed, would find the money fur them to start a school for little boys, which I consider ed the least laborious underUkiug for la dii s, and she not only need not be sepa rated from .her- daughters, but would be materially helped by them. His look of perfect satisfaction is among my dearest recollections. You're a good fellow, remarked Jack, huskily. Not at all Jack. I make no sacrifice, am insured myself very great happiness. They have always succeeded extremely well, and Anna, her husband, and chil dren come at Christmas. As to the lone liness which you thought must oppress me, I know nothing about it. Of other men's bid Jen experience, I know nothing; but for myselt, I find that as I grow old though I enjoy society with undiminish ed zest, 1 am more independent of it. No one is less dear to me, but all are less necessary. Chamber' Jonrnal. An incident of extraordinary ca nine affection has just come to light in connection with the awful calam ity of Mill River. CoL Joel Hay den, one of the sons of the late Lieut.-Governor Hay den, has a dog of St. Bernard kind. He has, for a long time, been the village favorite, and the pest of the school children. Ira Byrant, the father of Mrs. Col. Hayden, over 60 years of age, was a great favorite with the dog. By rant was lost in the disaster. On Sunday afternoon the dog started out and followed the searchers for bodies in the meadow lands. He was seen on Miller's flats, pawing in the sand, and when he was visited, it was found that he had dug quite deep in the dirt, the excavation ifi which discovered the lower portion of a man's limbs. The next half hour revealed the form of Byrant. Diligent search has been made for these remains, but it seemed hardly possible that any human being could have found the imbedded corpse. Canonization of Joajt of Aec. As has been already announced, there is a project on foot in France for the canonization of Joan of Arc. As the Church was the authority which burned her, the N. Y. Tribune thinks that it is only fair that it shonld make the honorable amends. Mr. Lowell speaks in one of his great po ems, of the hooting mob which re turns the day after martyrdom "to glean up the scattered ashes into his tory's golden urn." It would be a new sensation at least, to see an in fallible Church literally assuming the same part. Since Sedan, it doubtless appears, superhuman to drive out the invader and it has long been a child ish custom ot nations to compliment the -saints at the expense of them selves But many of the French seem in earnest about this project of pro moting the soldier-maid of Domremy to saintship, and general execration is felt for a cold-blooded journalist wno suggested that putting her in the canon might possibly improve the artillery.
