Many, many weeks had passed since wo bade good-bye to our friends at Coun cil Blufls and recommenced our lodious overland journey to California. We bad crossed tbe rich prairies, teeming with buffalos, and we encamped fur the night by tho clear waters of Luke. Tahoe, thankful that God had brought us safe o far on our way, and looking forward with hopo to tbe termination of our toils and daubers a pleasant reunion wilh friends from whoa wa had long been separated, and a huppy and prosperous abode in the fur-l'asncd land of cold. There was still danger from the Indians who had boon hanging on our track, tor several days ; so a watch was set, the cattle picketed in cloto proximity to tlx camp lire, and our firearms carefully ex amined and placed where they could be seized at once should an alarm ba given Tbe train was a large one, and several of the men were taking tbcir wives to Cali fornia. Taking advantage of this protection, a lady Mrs, Delafield whoso" husband was in California, had joined us in St. Louis with her little girl, about fivo years old. Active and energetic in time of need ; quiet, resolute, and possessing a moral power that controlled the other women in time of danger, we hud found her presence a help instead of a hindrance on our route. She was now seated by tho camp firo, the little golden haired Ada by her side, while I lay at her feet relating many anecdotes of her husband, who bad been my chum at college. She had left .St. Louis unexpectedly, and had no opportuny to apprise turn ol tho in tended coming ; and the talked of the joy he would feci when be taw her and tbe little daughter that bad been born during the absancc of her father. Francois, the cook, was preparing flip per, and tho savory odor of broiled unte lopo steaks, mountain quail, rousted be fore the Hie, and delicate trout, fresh caught from tho clear, cold waters of tbe lake, fried in their jackets of Indian meal, mingled with tho delicious fra grance of tbe coffee, in a way that was quite appetizing to us weury und hungry travellers. Some cows that were driving with tbe train bud been milked, and we were preparing for tho evening meal, when an alarm was given by the guard. Each man sprang at onco to arms, and everything was disposed of in the best pobtibla manner to protect tho women und children ns well as tho cattle, on whom our comfort and safely bo much depended. A company of horsemen, ten or fifteen in number, were rapidly an broaching our camp. At ihe distance of a few rods ihey halted, and tbe leader alone rode forward. He was a Mexican, lull and graceful, mounted on a magtufi cent mustang. "liuenos tarth's, amigos raion," he said. "Ao tniga vsletles miedo. oomos wu gus. (Uooii evening mends. Do not be afraid. Wo aio friends ) Some of our party understood Spanish, und we soon learned that be was Don Juan Lopez, accompanied by his herders; tliut be owned u large ruucho in tho vicinity, ucd that he was riding in search of soma lost cattle. Hejuined us in our meal ut our request, and although he spok but little English, his intelligence and vivacity udded much to our pleasure tliut even ing. He teemed particularly struuk by the beauty of Mrs. Delafield and her blue eyed, golden haired Ada. lie said "Has the Senora, by ehanoe, relatives in California 7 "My husband is there. I know of no other," answered the lady, smiling. "That cannot be the one," be said ; "El Senor Delafield to me is cuneJo ; what you call brotbar-in law. He marry my sister Donna Maria Lopez. lie marry her, now is, almost four years. I not home then." "Oh I that cannot be my husband," laughed Mrs. Delufield. "And so my little Ada may find somo far off cousins, for tbe natuo of Delabeld is not a com mon one. Senor, I hope that I shall become acquainted with Donna Maria. I shall regard her as a relative ttinco she has tbe same name. Mil nracias Senora : you aro vety kind." Tbe next morning Don Juan accompa nitd us several miles on our way, and then took leave of us with all Ibo grace ful urbanity of a Castilian caballero. On our arrival at Sacramento, Airs. Delufield took tho boat for San Irun Cisco, l accompanied tier, partly Deoauso I had business in that oity, partly bo cause I wished to sco ray friend Eugene onco more, and partly because I was un willing tbat one in whom 1 was so mucu interested should perform tbe journey with uo companion but her little child. We went to the American J'.icUange, then tbe best hotel in San Francises, and the bouse where wo koew fivom bis letters Eugenco was in the habit of taking room during bis frequent visits to tbat city. I'ernups uo was mere now. "Do not inquire, said Mrs. ueianeia, "till I change my dress and that of Ada. I want to surprise him, and Eugene is so I'ujiidioue about dress, I want my little one and myself to look our best," Whon sbo rejoined me in tbe pirler a short timo after, I thought I had never seen a more brilliantly beautiful woman. Her very agitation seemed to lend a new charm to her beauty, for her blue eye sparkled with a new light, and her cheek, that had been pale fcolorc, wore tbe rich huo of the damask rose. Tbe clork said that Sir. Delafield was in, that he had just gono to his ruorajaud, scarcely waiting for the bell boy to precede her, hiumH lb4 room intir.t(. "Oh I my husband," she exclaimed, "I have como to you and have brought our child, our little Ada, whom you have never seen," Tbeu seeing tho strange look in his eye, the hesitation in his manner: "But vou are g'ud to sea us, Eugene? Say tbat you ore glad to fla us r Beforo ho could answer, a lady tall. stately and elegantly attiicd advanced from tho inner room and stood with heaving breast, cheeks crimsoned wilh emotion and great flashing black eyes, fixed in wonder upon them. "What means ton intrusion? she said, wilh a Blight foreign accent. "Ku geno, my husband, please send her away Ur, tho may be insane; uuve Iter cared for, tenderly cared for, but snnu her away ; bcr presence pains mo. "lour husband 1 und -Mr Delafield started back, with pale cheeks find quiv ering lips "Your hunhand ? Thai can not be r.ugene JJcluuold is my husband and the father of my child. Eugene, dearest, who is this poor lady, and what does she mean by claiming you as hers V" "I'obrila 1 Ye, she wuudera in bor mind ; but send bcr away ; pleaso end her uwuy ; my heart aches to see her." And tears dimmed tbe luster of bcr mag' uificent dark eyes. "The way of the transgressor is haid," and so Eugene must have found it, us he stood confronted by these two beautiful women, both nf whom he bud wronged For a moment he hesitated, then, advatic ing toward bis wife, he passed bis arm around her an 1 drew the beautiful head till her face was hidden on Ins breast ".nana l he his 1 1, cnnlusedly, "l have wrouged you deeply, irremediably, 'i his lady is my wile. 1 married bcr bclorc coming to California." Donna Mara stood as if transfixed At last she said, slowly and painfully : "That lady is your wife; who, then, am I? You suore at God's altar, iu pretence of the holy Father, to be my true and faithful husband. Can a man have two wives? Who and what urn ? Eugene, bowed down with kliaius and humiliation, could only answer, "Yes, Louise is my wife. I married her first; she is my true wife." And Donna Maria swept quietly and gracefully from tho room. Liko one walking iu a dream, the passed through the long passage, down tbe broad stairs, and out to tho darkness of the unlightcd streets anywhere, allocated not whither, so tbat she left him behind her. And this was tbe meeting with her husband that Louito Delafluld bad so fondly an ticipated. Alter repeated inquiries wo weru at length on tho track of Dona Maiiu, for Mrs. Dalafield could not rost 'whilo she thought her innocent rivul was wander ing alono and unprotected through (his mid and dangerous country. The rains had swelled the mountain streams, and they rushed furiously through tho canons bearing on their way uptorn trees am: other debris that tbey bud encountered in their tumultuous path dowu the mountain's Bide. e were encamped lor the mgnt on the high ground at ono side of thu love I. est valley in thn Coast Kange, called by the Californian by the inouphouoou.s name of "blurt latl Canon. We ar rived there late at night, und ut onci lighted our camp-fire, ani mado prcpuru lions for our evening meal Another party had encamped on the opposite side of the canon ; but they hud arrived earlier, und now seemed to be slumber ing around the lire, with tbo exception of on, who, wrapped in a Mexican poncho, wus seated on a log, his elbow resting on his knees, und his face burie iu his hands, "An Injuu, you may bet your lifo,' suid Missouri Ben, "Sec hit long, black Iiut. iNow, stranger, mars no talkin', but that 'ur party of denied red skins is goin to givo us trouble, Delafield turned wearily in tho dito tiou indicated ; just then, the supposed Indian arse, threw oil' the poncho, and stood in the full light of the blazing pine logs. It was a woman, and Dela field grasped my arm till the pressure was pmoful. lie recogdizsd Donna .Maria "Wbee e-ew," whutlud Missouri Ben "Ef that 'ar Injun am t a woman, alter all. .Who'd 'a thought it; and she looks as pretty as one of them stone images you tee at Frisco " I'or Donna Maria was standing quietly, her bands clasped, und her graceful head bowed on her breast. "She do look like them stono figgars sure." continued Ben, forgetting, in tho admiration of the grucoful and stately figure, the supper that he was cooking I'or us beforo the fire. "Now I'vo been un these mountings, man and boy, for nigh upon thirty years, and 1 ve never seen atore this a eight half so purty But I sav Helios, thar, Boss I What ar yt doin' ; you'll be drowned sure Thar am t u hues id all Oalilorny can ford that tlough." Delafield had hastily unpicketed one of the horses, sprang upon its back, and was now on tbe edgo ot tbe durk, rush ing stream in tho oanon, vainly striving lo force his horno to enter the madly rushing water. Donna Maria ran to tbe edge of the precipice and bent over, clinging to a treo for support. Tbo light from their camp fire shone full upon the faeo and figure of Delufield and she must have recognized him. "Back I the shouted," waving her disengaged arm "Back, Don Eugene for vour life I lor tones were so clear that we could hoar thsiui distinctly above the roaring of tbo waters, and even ss she spoke another figure was 'eon scrambling dowu be tIiMtt $roipieus sidt t hc canon. and ina few moments Don Junn Lopez stood on tho other side of the stream, his rifio aimed at tb man who so cruelly deceived his tister. He fired, but with out effect, and tbo next moment the struggling horse stumbled and fell head long into the rtrcam, and, with its rider, was whirled rapidly into tho dsrkness. Thee mountain stream suhsido almost as rapidly as they rie. and in a few days we wore able lo return lo han FrnncUro, bearing with us the mangled body of DdaGeld. Donna Maria stood betide the widow and orphen, ns the body ef him who had so wronged her wa' consigned In its Gnal resting place, and then took them with her to her home in the lovely valley ef Santa Clara. "Let us be to each other as sisters," ho said ; "and let as share with you the care of the little one. My little Inez died. I can now siy, God be thanked that lie has taken her to Him- srll. Hut let mo bo a second mother to your little Ada." Delafield died poor. Self Indulgent and luxurious in his habits, he had spent, long tielnrc his death, the largo sum at money that he brought with him to Cali fornia. But Doana Maria wi'8 n Spanish heiress, and the large income received from her vast estate had enahlod him to continue the indolent and expensive life to which be had become accustomed. Mrs Delafield and her child were never permitted tn feel tbe fo.s nf fortune, and whon in a few ear the beautiful widow became once more a wife, her generous rival placed in her jewel casket all th ncn gems that had desce ded as an neirioom to the only daughter of the she said ; "I shall more. You are now houte of Lopez. "lake them, never need them my brother's wife, and I shall ho glxd to see you weir them. Juan, too. will like to seo his beautiful wife wearing his mother's diamonds." Donna Maria never married, but her lifo is spent in deeds ol charity and telf nial. hjch year, on the anmvermry of I) i Infield's death, masses are said for the reposo ot bis soul, and the morument that covered his grave i wieatbed with the lairest flowers ; for the woman whom ho so falsely deceived no looks upon bis memory in death as being exclusively her own. And the little Ada, whose blue eyes and golden curls arc so liko her father's, is deircr to her by far than the (iark-bair1 children with their lar e black, Spanish eyes, that now cluster about the old homestead. The Deacou's Helorl. In my mind's oyo 1 can see Uncle El Mot's bald und polished pate as plainly as I saw it iu tbo years uione. when, ol a Sunday, it used to bob up and down, and swuy to and fro, in the pew before tut. Genial, uood souled man 1 II was a deacon iu those days Wo elected him deacon alter Jubez Bennett died. It cuiiiq hard for ut to drop the long used Uncle, and call In in "J),icon Elliot ; but we accomplished the feat in time, and the dignified appclativu came ut length to sound quite natural and home like, i'urson Kimhull, when he knew that Elliot hud been olecttd as deacon, simply expressed the hopo that the wor thy una respected brother thus elevated might become a true aud reliable spirit ual guide in tbe congregation. "And lo that end," the Parson udded, "ho must above all things learn to keep uwuko dur lug religious service." How well I remember tbe time. It was on a sabbath al ernoon ol August, wurm and sultry. Ben Greeley and I sat together directly behind the Deacon. I'arson Kimball a subject was "lvegener- ation ; and he considered it under tbe usual number of heads. To him the sub ject wus one of deepest import, and ef vital consequence, und he desired that his flock should enter into the spirit with him. Hd preacheJ vigorously, al buit bis propositions were obstruse and bis reasoning exceedingly metaphysical It very toon became evident that the good deacon was not particularly inter ested. He began to nod and doze, and ere long his gleaming pate swayed with that muasuied cadence which character izes the nodding of the habitual church sleeper- I'arson Kimball saw and was indignant. Ho raised his voice and talked directly at 'he slumbering offeu dee. He pitched a still higher note, an i smote bis fist upon the pulpit. nd still the Deacon nodded, "Wretched mortal I slumbering upon the brink ol dark des ptir, awake! awake I" improvised the I'arson. But to no avail The Deacon's auditory nerves were not startled by notes so familiar. At length, grown deaperutn, the I'aison resolved upon a direct and bold attack, The occasion demanded it. Uo would aduuiuster a reproof whioh should last for all timu and whish should bo of healthy effect upon all dozing pariohoners. "Deacon Elliott I Deaeou Elliott!" ha eried, smiting the open Bibro as he spoko tbe tone and the gesture start ling the assembly like a bursting bomb, "it is a tedious and thuHkiets task to preach to a sleepy congregation 1" The Deacon's bald pate was elevated instantcr, and under the impulse of a shocked and ollended spirit, without tak ing counsel of bis reason, he shouted back : "Purscn Kimball I I'arson Kimball I if you want to try something mora tedi ous und thankless, jest you come down hero und try to listen to a sleepy sermon." The reador must imagino the rest. I cannot do it. T.adies just returned from nbrnsd ex hibit a grout quantity nf tortoise jewelry, which they ulhriu to be highly, fashion able in London mi 1'aris. A questionable hiury. Mr. Greeley Reported to be Insane. dt. Louli Otobe Special. New Youk, November 21. It has been generally known here far soma timo past that Mr. Greeley was unwell. To day your correspondent received the in formation in confidence that .Mr Greeley is insane. At the time of his wife's sickness, Mr. Greeley wa a constaut attendant night and day. Her death was a great ktroks to bim ; theo camo his terrible deleat in the election, and this combination in duced a terriblo nervous prcstration. Ho came to tho Tribune offico the day ufter tho election and wrote a few articles, and during tbat week wus down town every day Ho finally gavo up and re tired to his home at Chappaquu. Dr Bayard, of this city, who has at tended him, says that Mr. Greeloy has not slept night or day for eight days ; that he is very weak, and that his recov ery is a matter of very great uncertainty. A gentleman counectcd with the Trib une stated ibis evening that Horace was as ''crazy as a bad bug ;" that his frisnds had sent him to Uloomingdalt asylum, and the o Uicer s of that institution had reluscd to take him in, owing to tha strictures upon that establishment re cently published iu the Tribune. Uo was then taken to S hito Plains, where he is a present. These statements could not be verified by Mr. Iteid, or those in authority at the office, for they refused te say anything in regard to Mr. Greeley boy und tho fact that he was very sick Mr Dwyer, Mr. Greeley's private sec retary, stated tbat he had for some tima past replied to all communications from i he friends of Mr. Greeley without con sulting the latter. Uo didu't know where Mr. Greeley was Your correspondent endeavored lo find tho physician, Dr. Btyard, to night, but could not succeed. Meanwhile, the gen eral belief in journalistic circlas bare is that Mr. Greeley is a lunatic, and wonderful steries are told of the philoso pher's attacks upon people with carving knives and chairs. These facts have not been alluded to in the New York prosa us yet. New York, November 25 A morn ing paper publishes to day the story cur rent in newspaper circles for nearly a week, that Horace Greeley is insane, and sij s be is now an inmate of the asylum ut White Plains. The samo paper makes publio an iuterview with Wbittlaw Held, the managing editor of the Tribune, iu which that gentleman is made to say, in answer to questons : Mr. Greeley has been under medical treatment for some time. Ho is always eccentric in manner, and very likely te be considered by some stark mad, but be is simply nervously prostrated. i'or months prior to the deatk of bis wife he did net sleep an heur a night, und since her death bus been in the samo condition. In answer to tbe question : "Is it true that Mr. Greeley drew a knife on ono of bis friends ?" Dr. llcid is made to answer by tbe interviewer : I tell you be (Mr. Greeley) has dona nothing which to those who know him, seems strange. He is always an eccen tric man, und at best acts as if he were queer, but now, when nervously pros trated, Btrangcrs might think him erazy. I have seen him positively furious when a first prool sheet hue been brought bias instead oi a revise, but I know and un derstand him." .Mr He id said that Mr. Greeley, not withstanding loss of sleep and appotite, was in general good health and made tho request of the reporter to say be waa only nervously prostrated. Thera is b good -saying more." Mr. Haid urged, Mr. Greeley has bad eneugh to worry him, a nil what ha needs is quiet and rest." fhe Columbus Sun puts Jo print the following war incident: "A good story is told of Col. Mark Blandford, ona of our ablest lawyers and former Confeder ate colonel, and afterward congressman. An empty alcove attests how gallantly ba woro the gray The Colonel, ths story goes, was in Western Virginia, lanksa troops wero in the habit of frequjotiag a bouse in the valley. Ihe Uolonol, ous night, took a squad of twenty men to surprise them un the spot ne louna the l auks numbered ten to bis one, sod they mad th party skedaddle up tb mountain. Tbo men ware autruuniog the Colonel, when ha suddenly sboutsd "halt I" Tho man did so.
