My uncle, Aloxundcr McFarlane. wis waiting breakfast, an event very uti common with him, for Aunt Nancy was tho soul ot punctuality. Nevertheless alio was a little late this morning:. Eigbt o'clock was tho breakfast hour, and now it wai fully ten minutes past. Aunt Nnnoy was not my Undo Mc L arlauVs wife, He was a widower of some HI teen, years stancitntr. inltccn years before his wife had loft him a dolt cate littlo boy for a keepsake, and had cone away, whispering with her last breath that she was very happy. Her mother and sister, who bad come to the house to nurso her, remained after hii death, according to Unci McFarlane'; particular request. He would be so glad, ho said, if it wore not exacting to much of a sacrifice, to have Mrs. Howard and "Nancy 'stay with him, keep up blshousc, and attend to Ine little boy. So .Mrs uoward, who was a widow with a very straightened income, rented her house iti the New England village where tho had always lived, aud camo to preside over Mr. Mc e'arlanc's spacious mansion and liberal housekeeping in Qrecnwich strict, Now xork my Undo Mcharlane lived in Greenwich street, a fact which marks the dato of my story with sufficient cz actness. Mrs. Howard had been dead threo nnntbs, and still Aunt Nancy presided over Undo iilorarlar.es household Neither of thorn bad ever thought of i change as either necessary or desirable Nancy bad been a fair, prim, and homo what quiet girl when she cume to live in Greenwich street. She was ttill a fair, somewhat'' prim woman of thirty-Gve, with pretty, soil brown liuir, violet blue eves, and a pure, soft, somewhat changed complexion. She was not in tho least like a modern young lady's heroine She bad no particular aspirations beyond the limited and old-1'ushioned one of doing her duly in that state of life to which it had pleased God to call her She did not consider herself a martyr to uncongonial circumstances, because ah tnado Uncle McFurlaue's shirts- and mended his stockings, aud even to the fact of going down into the kitchen, to do up bis immaculate rultles, when old Mrs. Brown's hand were too lame, and the chambermaid's too unskillful to be trusted with them, did not awaken any desire to rush out into the world in search of a career. No such fancy had ever entered Nancy Howard's head Sho was absolutely "contented with her nroecnt conditiou, willing lo go on mak ing Uncle McFurlane's shirts, keeping his bouse, spoiling his child, and "miK ing it pleasant for him," as she simply said. Her great pleasures consisted doing muslin embroidery, visiting th Door, and leading the Jvuglish cusstcs with now and then a novel. If sho bad any trials sho kept them to herself, con tidinL' tliem to no spiritual director, news Dancr editor or female friend. Such was .." r . f I . I . Nuncy Howard ut nva auu tuiny My Undo .Mcflurlutie was a uno gen llctnun in the true sense of tho phrase He was unimpeachable in integrity, un spotted in morals, in manners absolutely perlect a lime set in uis way, uuu pus sibly somewhat particular in eating and drinking. He was also given to amusing himself in a qu-.et way with the pecuiiun ties of tboso about htm. But be nevor willinclv hurt or neglected any one, a be bad a certain genial graciousness manner, which made all employees, from Mr. Saunders, the confidential clerk down to Black Sam, the carman, and Daw. the errand boy, feel better when be spoke to them. "Miss Nancy is a little lato tnis morn ine I" observed Uncle MoFarlano, lirown. bis man. brought mm his paper. "Yok. sir. she was out till alter twelve last night, at Sam s, sir.

Wo all know his ways I" There was something in his fathers tone which made Alick aware that be bod better drop the subject. Uncle McFar lane went on with his paper, but now nd then glanced over it with an expres sion ol somo Interest. "Nancy is pretty !" he said lo himiolf. "There is something in her face that reminds ue or my mother. Breakfast being over, my uncle put on his overcoat, asking: as ho did so, his invariable question; "Have you any commands for the city?" "Aud, by tho way please see that everything is dono for Sam's family. I ho poor woman will perhaps be the batter for oma port wine, or ale, and let eveiything bo nice about tho funeral.

He and Undo Mc Farlaue had once been partners, and they still kept up a kind of intimacy, at which many people wondered "YYti.l, bousall, how goes the world with you?" asked my uncle, leisurely takiim off his coat and overshoes. Oh, well enough. If it don t go to suit me. 1 make it. that s all I answered wife, as ho was preparing to go out; apenoing tho f2.000 in electioneering "I annko lo MoFarlano about Nancv 1" and trvinu to influence tho electors to and repeated tho substanco of the couvcr saiion.

"You'll find out soon enough. Go along, do, and leave mc in pcaco." Mr. Bonsall was always very meek when his wife look those rare Gts of plain speaking, and ho shut the door without another word. Mrs. Bonsall sat looking at the Gre with an expression of vexa tion, which gradually changed to ono of kindness. "After all it might be worse, said sho, speaking lo the fire. "Nancy is a L'ood soul, and as sweel as honey. Shu will make him happy, and be happy her herself, and it will be good lor tho boy But 1 think I sec Bonsall's faco when ho hears of it."

In order to post the public upon tho movements of his vonthful highness, a Chrouicle reporter took a suit of roouis immediately adjoining the upartuietita of young Grant,' who is now stopping at tho Lick House, in company with the son of Senator Cole. Grant and Cole are great chums, and on terms of such familiar acquaintance that they think nothing of appropriating each other's shirts, stockings and collars. Early in tho evening the two young gentlemen were indulging iu a social game of billiards. Both aro very poor players, and the time of tho gome, by tho Chrou icle reporters watch, was sixty-uvo min utes. Urants largest run was six, maao up mostly of scratches, and Cole managed, by a great, etlort, to scoro cigni uituoui stopping: Urautcaut inako rouua-me. tablo shots, and tole has a aeep rooieu abhorrence of draws. Grant got beaten threo points, and both quit disgusted with tho game. As the two turned to go the hawk-eyed attendant who holds the office of internal revenue collector for the hall stepped up and tapped young Grant on the shoulder. "I bolieve ynu lost that pume." "Yes ves! that s so, and pitch ini? the man four bits, ho went off with- nut wnitine fcr tho chanuo. Colo tried to muke out that his friend was attempt ing to bilk the house, but the bystanders wero satisfied that it was merely ft piece of dignified absent mindeduess on Jesse's nart. At 10 o ClOCK ine young gcuui-im-u betook themselves to room U'J, and pre pared to go lo bed. Grant got undressed first, and took the right stuo ot tuo oea. Uolc objected to this, urging that no was accustomed to that side himself, and sleeping next to the wall was played out with him. Grant responded that if be didn't like sleeping on that side ho was at liberty to sleep under the led, on cither side, on top of the wash stand, or out in the hall. Cole got mad at this ill- timed levity and rang the clcctne machine for a waiter. A stalwart individual at once nnde his appearanco, of whom Cole ordered a bed. Iu a few minutes an elegant mahogany bed, wiih rosewood trimmings, spring mattress, and necessary fixture., was brought and set up in the room, after which tho waiter departed. In a few minutes Cole rang again, and the following dialogue took place: Colo I seo this bod hasn't got any casters on. Bring me a bed with casters. Waiter Yes, sah. Won't somo cas ters put on this bed be enough? Colo finally ass-eoted, and tho required r-liani-e was made. lnuboutan hour everything was lovely in mum 30. when Colo suddenly sung out. "I sav Jess, everything is all right nnw : let's have something to drink.' "Don't care if I do :" and in another mnmnnt n waiter was living down to tho hr with an order for two whisky cock tails. In a few minutes he oume back followed by tho handsome barkeeper, who, with a polilo oricutal salaam, handed Grant the following telegram: Headquarters of the Seat of Govern ment, Washington, April 20.11, 1S73. To the Barkeeper of tho Lick Houso- Sir : You aro hereby commanded to lurnish no spirituous liquors of any kind, to my son Jcsso Grant, during ins so journin Sun Francisco. U. S.

Tho waiters wcro angrily dinuisred, ami n nnuneil of war was held, and the two deliberated as to bow a drink could be obained. Cole thought that if he cjuld only got to bis father's curpct bag ha miuht find something there, but be wasn't auro.' Grant kicw a man who ronmcd on Kenrnv street who would L-ladlv contribute a whole bottle of the ardent if ho could only bo found. At Inst thov cave un tho idea of having r-nr-ktnil kinl both took a long driuk of eold water, The Chroniclo icpolor was of half mind to Vender tho acceptance of his private llak of old Cutter's best, but being a littlo diffident about intruding upon straneri", ho relinquished Iho idea Hnth vouou men now turned into bod and at exactly 20 minutoi past ll Grant began lo snore with remarkable energy when Cole woke up and sung out : "I say" (hitting him with a pillow), 1 can't sleep with this racket." Grant rtartcd up with, "Cheeso that now, I want to sleep." "So do I, and I want less snoring. "I wasn't snoring.' "You wasl" "I say I was not." "Well, I know you was." "Well. I know better." After agreeing not to snore, Grant went to sleep and so did Cole, and then iIiav both snored together. At 2:20 vnnnir Grant rolled over in bed and asked Cole what time it was. Cole woke up and 'made scftoo rcmirk about a locality which wa- suggestive of tho idea ol warmth, 'the general purport of which was unintelligible to tho reporter. Gram was anxioOs to Vnotv the iimo, as he had understood ihn't u ncW barkeeper cum on duty at four in tha morning. Thii idea interested 'Cole, and, lighting tho gas, they compared tiiLcpieCes lirant a watch uenuicu iu lninuiu" past 1. while Cole's was fifteen tnit'u es past fi. Eaah one was positive that his watch was right, and ihuy both put up emu to tho amount of 25 cents to back their respect ive views, after which they went to sleep. At 10:ua the morning iun got round on that side of the house, and ihe two youngsters got up. Cote, on going to the door, made the startling discovery that tho door had been Uulocked nil night. "Gracious I" remarked Grata, "some of them 'Frisco chambermaids might have slipped in hero und taken everything we bad."

From Column's Kural World The result of our county und towtish p electiuu surprised the friends of the fat ninrs movement, .as well us those wno or posed it. Thi dominant party hud made nomination in tr.c customary man ncr. If but few attended the caucus, it must have been the fault of thoo who were absent rather than those prcseut. if the friends of the nominees secured their nomination by request or favor, there was ccrtriuW nothing uuusual about that. A few farmers tcok it into (heir heads lo call n caucus of farmers, and they mado nominations for themselves bs far mers not a partisans ; und although the time was barely sufiiuicnt to make it fully known at ihe different precincts, yet this seems to huvo bpen all that vsuh necessary, and tlto ticket was elected handsomely. As wo had but lately commenced or ganizing granges, some think the success is directly attributable to that organiza tion, aud look upou it as n political move ment, another Know-nothing trick ; but I know, partly of my own knowledge. and tartly from tho very best sources, that the subject had nuvcr been men tioned insido of a grange.

It is eminently pToper anu neco.-sary to exclude 'tiro current parly politics from the order-: but like many nthers I think some subject concerning government and . .... .,.. law making, in which termers are uirecny interested, and about which they could not seriously disagree, might be admitted with eusl propriety, and for ihe general good. The ordct was no doubt started by a few persons on such a basis and with such regulations, as ihy thought best, and as may havo It'en really the best foT a start. It is yet partly in its infancy, but as it gains grounds in the affections of its fast increasing members, it will bo no longer under llw 'cotitiol or judgment of a few. It will take such a course as tho united w'ndom of hundreds of lliou Bunds uioy direct, and if n modification is desired by a coniroling majority, it will be made. It is almost useless, even in its present elate, tn speculate on what may bo accomplished through this or ganization. The first thing on hands is to get lh farmers uuitcd, and while this is progressing, secure what incidental benefits wo can, and gain experience. When this shall have been proximately accomplished, it will scarcely be an open question what they can do next. Mote will depend on what ihcy will do. Meantime, as soon as farriers cduualo themselves lo concert of action in tho granges, cultivate confidence and good will toward ca:h oilier, and find out iho amount of lutent lalcut within their ranks, 1 think our municipal oleotion may teach us a lesson worth remember, ing If wo cannot talk politics of any kind in the granges, wo can have farm ers' meetings, caucuses and conventions outside. We can nominalo our best men, leaving out offico seekers, whether they live ou a farm or in a lawyer's office, and we cah got plenty of help to ele t them Iron towns and cities by good men who despise domagoguery as much ah wo Jo. jCiiAUixa Patteiison.
