"Oh, it's the milliner's apprentice, is it?" said Green, the parlor-,irl. - "Just step into the hall, and wait a minute. Miss Madison's own maid will be down directly. We're hav ing quite a state of things up stairs," S Green added, bustling around to fasten up a woolly white poodle which had contrived to snap the 11 links of his golden chain. "Miss 'a Madison has had a dianmoni1 ring stole. And they've sent for a de tective gentleman. and Miss Madi y son's uncle from Wall Street. And C missus has had hysterics, and the doctor is there giving her drops; and the cook says, up and down, .v she won't stay in no family where Sthe help is suspected !' "Dear, dear !'' said little Rachel, ropening her blue eyes as round as r two marbles, And as G reen hurried away,. In answer to a shrill summons from above, Bile looked timidly around her. She was always pleased to be sent to the Madison house. It was her ideal of Aladdin's palace-of Ethe beautiful mansions wherein dwelt the heroines of song and story. When she described it to tile liitle ones at hecne, after her day's workc was over, they could scarcely credit its splendors. There was a circular hall, with a railed gallery, extending around the second story, and a dome of white and amber glass overhead, and a g reat bronze statue of some fabled "' warrior kept gaard on horseback in d the middle of the marble floor. d There was a deep fireplace, lined with china tiles, where a fire of oconted logs blazed on tall fire-dogs of polished brass; deep, plush easy chairs were drawn up beside It, and a pair of monster Japan vases which reached up to Rachel's shoulder, were always full, whether the February snows carpeted the .outside world, or the March winds shook the casements, of delicious, half-blown roses, with long stems, tand satiny, shiny leaves. For the life of hter 3he would not have dared to go up and smell 0f them. or to touch their perfumed pptals; but she stood afar off and md bregt'geti in their sweetness, and looked at their tints of pearl and pink like a humtble worshiper o g* the beautifu~l. "Miss Madison has a new parq quet," she thought, "I rsyer ta that little beauty in the gold cage N' before." Adrienne, the French maidl, came pr- hurrying down directly-a tall, )r.. bold:Jooking young woman, with jaunty cap per,ched in the midst of her black braids, anad bi1pa pf cher ry ribbon on her white muslain ap: run. She ha I an absent expressiot on her face, and looked at little inchel as if har ftdhd Wft p'isCo cupied with something else, and sie did not see her. 0 -It's the reception-bonnet. miss, fl please,' explained Rachel, with a courtesy. h ;-Oh, the bonnetI" said Adrienne, n "You work-people are always com- o ing at the wrong time. Oh, yes, I tl dare say it is all right ! But," with e a sudden, smiling assumption oft ti interest, "you are wet. It rains c and you will take cold. Take off o your shawl, and come to the fire and dry yourself." p '-Oh, no. ma'am-thanks !" said little Rachel, reaching out for the ii shawl which Adrienne had officious a ly removed, and resisting her efforts !o to lead her to the fire. "Tt don't o: rain; it only mists a little." 'But it does rain," sharply ti spoke Adrienne, giving the girl's hi faded skirt a shake as she spoke. tli -'Don't you see the drops? Well,' with a shrill laugh, -if you don't w choose to dry yourself, the fault is c< your own." if '-I was to return as soon as pos siblr, m'ain," said little Rachel. s< rather embarrassed by all this extra S attention, "If Mliss Madison was tu suited"-- # th Adrienne caught up the bandbox, er which Rachel had held all the time, Ii and whirling around on her heel, ran up stairs into the reception- thi apartment, where Miss Madison nE herself stooed, surrounded by a c group of people. Pl Miss Madison was a tall, bfonde- w complexioned young lady, with 10 clear, hazel eyes, a well-rounded it chin, and the air of one who definite- rc ly comprehended her rights and meant to assert them. IIer mother. 3I an irresolute, elderly lady, looked ev feebly from her daughter to the a policeman in plain clothes, who a stood deferentially before them, a and then back again. "Well, if the house is to be te searched. it had best be done to promptly, I suppose," said Miss Madison. -Tell your man to pro. s: ceed at once, Mr. Jones." in "But, my dear Corisande. do cor. sider !' twittered Mrs. Madison w "Some of our maids are so very ge superior! The idea of ransacking their trunks, as if they were coin- th mon burglars !'" ric "If they are innocent of stealing my diamond ring they won't care," mi said Corisande, indifferently. "-If si they are guilty, they deserve all the obloquy which can descend upon er them." do Just here the French maid glided cu up close to her mistress. he "Pardon, mademoiselle?" she bc whispered, her half-closed gray eyes TI furtively observing the detective as flC she spoke- 'but it occurs to me co that I have a new clue to this mys- y tery. The little milliner girl is be lox stairs; she has just brought home this bonnet. Perhaps mal. lhi emtoiselle has forgotton that she h waited in mademoiselle's dressing- inl room half an hour last Wednesday. Mademoiselle has not seen her rifig th since." yC Corisande knitted her brows. hE "'To be sure !" said she. "But rg you don't su;pon that she has tak M en it?" tb "I would v'entumre to make no r.c- h cusation, mademoiselle," said shte, W "but perhaps, in a moment of temp- in tation--" "The matter is easily settled," P' said the detective, "We can have ec the young person up here at once and search her." Little Raichel came up, much s wondIering. She was startled when im Adrienne volubly explained to her et the business upon which she was summoned, but consented at once s to the search. "Why shouldn't I?" said she, P' simply, "I have nothing to be f afraid of," Site turned her dress,pocket inf side out, A little, much,worn leath~ er purse ap)peared-an elevated railway ticke'-a scrap of poetry,A cut from some newspaper, fell out - and then a diamond ring, with one glittering fascet of fire, set in its plain circlet of gold, flashed si.ddenly upon their eyes! - "Ha I' said Adrienne, pouncing upon it, as some payen neight poune on its prey. "Madernoisel le pan see for herself I A4h, wretch ! perfi. 4Qtns thief!" And she shQd Rachel by theg shoulder with one hagd, qs she held up the ring with her other. Esche1 h#d tqrned as pale as 4 ashes, I think I must be dreaming !" e said she. '-I n. ver saw the ring ti before in all my life !' "Come, come,'' said the detective, a ' that sort of thing wcn't go down. 'a l'm afrai:1 you're an old hand at $ the business, for all you look so ii young and innocent." tl Of course Rachel was arraigned c. befoFe the court, but Corisande u M1adisgn refrqged tg appey fgr the prosecution. "Thbe matter has gone far enough," ti she said. *'The girl is not a bard- c ened thief. She stole the ring in a i moment of temptation. She -has c suffered sufflciently. I don't be- il lieve she will ever offend in this wav again." Ao"liftle Bmachel was dischared .with a reprmand from the magis, But it was like clipping the wing f a wild-bird and then bidding il y away into freedom once more. The fashionable milliner whc ad employed the girl would hav( othing more to say to her. Nc tie wanted her services. And ox ie faw occasions when there seem I a prospect of getting remunera ve work, the horison was ove ouded at once when the question references came up. No one wanted a thief about their emises! One person, however, believed in tle Rachel still-her stepmother, hardworking woman. who let dgings and did up fine laces and d ladies' cap.i for a livelihood. "There is some jugglery about is business," said she. -My isband's daughter never was a ief!" It was in the bleak winter time hen Adrienne Moncontour engag I the one attic bedroom that Mrs. olley still had to let. Adrienne had left Miss Madi. n's service some weeks before. ie conld not agree with the new >usekeeper, who loudly declared at the Fren%,h maid had once been nployed as a waitress in a gamb 1 saloon in Paris Perhaps there was some truth in is. for certain it was that Adrien had an unconquerable mania for rds, and a! a genteel gambling ace, frequented by haggish old >men and sage young ones, she st all her little savings, and crept to Mrs. lolley's back attic bed om, as she supposed. to die. "I'm afraid she's a bad lot," said rs. IIolh-y, --but I wouldn't let 'en a cat die in my house, without little care. Rachel, you make her little beef tea, and I'll spare her wing off the fowl for her dinner." And the mother and step daugh r together nursed Adrienne back something like strength. "I don't see why you've done it." id Adrienne, harshly. "I'm noth g to you.' "We try to be kind to every one io needs kindness," said Rachel. nt;y. -'I can't pay you even the rent of is wretched hole !" groaned Ad mne. "We didn't suppose, me and rther, thatyou could," said Rachel nply -'But that don't signify. "See !" cried Adrienne, with fev ish eagerness. "I heard you mwn stairs yesterday.

Yes, sah, it do inndedee, an' don y ou forgit it." I think the sun moves myself, or if it has not, that it will move shortly. I1 shoul not be at all surprised to" see the earth fly off at a tangent any moment, for there is certainly something extraordinary going on which is shaking all the old preju dices and conceits out of us, that have had their roots in our genera tions more than three thousand years. We are preparing for a grand labor celebration on Septem ber 1st. It is muscle and bran against money bags. Archimedes said if he had a place to rest his lever, he could move 'he world, but labor is Loth the tulerun and the lever that are moving the world to day. The other night the Labor Unions had a meeting to arrange for the coining parade, and a mo tion was made that the colored unions be invited to part:cipate, and it was carried almost without a dissenting voice. It only seems like yesterd ty since this s:ime fac tor in our national politic. was only a nigger; but this act of our labor union does what all the amnend ments you could pile upon the con stitution in a year would not do, it raises him to the dignity of a man. It is labor's great proclamation that if the black man has the ener gy and the ability to elevate him self, they will not try to keep him down. The colored mechanics and laboring men have accepted the in vitation, and the presumption . is that instead of being put at the tail of the procession, they will be ac corded the post of honor. The bit ter prejudice of caste and race has been nowhere stronger than among our laboring men ; and as to our mechanics, no shop would think of taking as an apprentice, a colored boy. The only avenues to advance ment, were as waiters, barbers or porters; no mechanical pursuit was open to them; and, in fact, it has been no easy matter to get a white boy in any of the trades, so strict has been the rule of our labor unions; but the resolution.of -last week breaks down a formidable bar rier against the colored race, and if they don't get on in New York after this, it will be their own fault. There is unusual bustle in the churches and theatres, the greater part of them having been closed during the past two months. The cross was placed on the spire of Grace Church on Saturday, 263 ft. from the ground, and thousands of people stood below with bated breath as the huge stone weighing over a ton was fixed in its final rest ing place. Grace Chureb, which is the fashionable centre for Episco palianism in New York, is being thoroughly overhauled-the pews reupholstered, and some very fine extra work in carvings, &c., put in. The tendency to showy adornments is running away with the common sense of the people, and while there is something truly grand in a fine stained glass window, especially when devoted to some scriptural subject, the present trashy style of adornment with yellows and reds and blues and gold, while well enough for a cir"us or a theatre, is altogether out of place in a church, A great many alterations have been made in all of our great churches; and many thousands of dollars have been expended in their adornment. In a couple of weeks the congregations will be back, and the vagrant shepherds, fortified by the expertence gained in Lor.don, Paris, Vienna and Berlin-not to mention Cairo and Jerusalem, will be prepared to combat the world and the nlesh and make it very un comfortable for the But a-s I remarked in a former letter, there seems to be quite an affinity between the church and the stage. They suspend operations abon4 the samo time, and they com mence op evations togethmer. Wbile I write, Union Square, or that por t?on o" it which is to the right of Broadway, swarms with members of the theatrical profession. Many pf therm gre emngaged in the city toentres, jqst abQut to open, .ad ogny more are preparing to statrt upon the road, The coming season promises to be a busy one. The cry is still that we have no American dramas or dramatists, and if some of our would be crities are to be believed, very few American ac t,ors ar actresses. Yet in the face of this, is the fact, that "Hazel Kirk" bad a run here of three or, four years, in addition to which, there were eight or ten companies on the road playing it in differen4 paFts of the co'4ogy, May B3lossom h as now run one' uandrett and fifty nights at the Madison Square Thea tre, where Hazel Kirk had its earl iest triumphs, and it promises to run 150 nights more, The fact is that American managers do not give American authors the same 'chance that English authors receive fpon Egis~h mnanagers, and in re, gagd to actors and actreuses, Mi. mIy1nanan bf Amaleeans has created as much of a sensation tt season in London as any attracti< they have had before the l)ub there. Mary Anderson, Ada Reha Minnie Paliner and Lotta ha scored successes as pronounced any on the London stage. A shall soon have them all back Minnie Palmer and Lotta are he now, and Daly's company will I back in a couple of weeks, so th it looks as though we might have very exciting seasoa. Our.sister city, Brooklyn, fu nishes us with a charming little r mnance. For five years past the cil of churches have been pestere with an exceedingly adroit fema thief. She was not only a skilf, shoplifter, but a first class burgh as well. She could pick a lock < crack a safe, or go through dool or windows with her jimmy, an when it came to close quarters w. not afraid to use a pistol or a kuil to clear l.er path to libcrty. Bt her strong hold was to secure sc vice as a seamstress or housemai< and when she had gained the coi fidence of the family, so far as t find out where the valuables wet kept, then she scooped up ever: thing she could lay her hands on, an skedadled for parts unknowi Ladies by scores, complained Lhe loss of sealskin sacques, jewelr; Liresses, &c. in short nothing seen d to come amiss to this fascina ng domestic. Detected one nig! by the lady of a house in the act < arrying off her jewels, she drew knife and scaring the life out < hr would be captor, got safely o with her plunder. Her success i ;etting through the meshes of th aw was wonderful; for when he ,rosecutors looked upon her youn; ;weet, artless face, they said ther nust he some mistake about thi: ud withdrew from the prosecutiot ,he is one of the most stupendou rimim l frauds ever seen in thi ountry. Last week she was cot icted of burglary and sent to th enitentiary. A young farmer i Aonnecticut read an account of he md fell in love with her head ove iars. On Monday he made his al >earance at the Police Station i Brooklyn, and tried to get a pas o see the fairy of his dreams. II ad never seen her, but a more di ot e lover never paid court to fai ady. He has a fine farm, goo )rospects and plenty of money, an . passes al the fair maidens of hi )wn vil a;e .y, to ii s,all as th mistress of his home and heart, on f the most notorious thieves i New York. You may say he is %rank. but ons every other subjec 3ave this, he is as sane as you or I [ts a queer case, but I almost fo; ret to add that the lady has not y( 'ide up her m.ind.

No one who looks from the on side upon the stained glass win don~ of a cathbedsral can tell how glorion: ly the colors blend within, whe in the declining sunlight, wari gles, rose bloom and soft amethyi wander over arch and pillar, an the "shielded escutcheons" bIns with the blood "of qneens an kings." And so it is with a goc man's life. They who know it oi ly from the outside can have bat faint idea of itq beanty and i1 truth. Unless indeed we can se him as he knows himself, and witl ont any suspicion on his part th: we observed him, it is diffilenti the extremne to make a just estimal of his cbaracter and worth. Fo tunately, in the case of one upc whom, at this time, the eyes < millions of American freemen ai fixed, we have the opportunity u Seeing a public servant in the ml ror which he holds up to himself. On the day that he was electe Governor of the State of NYew Yor, Grover Cleveland wrote a prival lettLr to his brother. This lett< passed into the posseidoa of a R pubbecan, from whom it has been o& taned by the New York I.ulepe. rient, 'vliich no y publishes it. TI Itter is as follows : IfAYo!th OrncE, BUFFAO, Nov. 7, 1882. My Det. Rothar 1 have ji is voted. 1 sit here in the Mayor's >n office alone, with the exception of ic an artist f. om Frank L:siiu's news n, paper, who is sketcbing the office. re If mother was here I should be as writing to her, and I feel as if it re were time for me to be writing to - some one who %%ili believe what I re write. I have been for sce --time e in the atmosphere of certain suc. at cess, so that I have been sure that a I should assume the duties of the high office fi.r which.I bav been r- named: . have tried-hardI .the o- light of this fact, to pi opcrlfappre y ciate the responsibitites tbnt will d rest epon'eme, and they are much, e too much, underestimated. But I the thought that has tronbled me r is : Can I well perform my duties, r and in euch a manner as to do some s g'od to the people of the State? I d kncw there is room for it, and I s know tiut I am honest and sincere e in my desire to do well, Lut the t question is whether I know enough r- to accomplish what I desire. ,' The social life which seems to - await me has also been a subject of A much anxious thought. I have a -e notion that I can regulate that very much as I- desire, and if I can I cI shall spend very little time in the - pnrely ornamental part of the office. f In loin,t of fact, I will tell you, first of all others, the policy 1 intend to adopt, and that is to make the mat t ter a b,,sine.s engig7 ?nert betWceen the t people of the State a;ul uiself; in which the otligation o;t my side is to a >erform the duties assignced me with fan eye single to the interest of my enlllol/ers. I shail have no idea of re election or of anyjigher political c preferment in my head, but be very r thankfal and happy if I can well serve one term as the people's e Govei nor. Do you know that if SnotLer were alive I should feel so - much safer ? I have always thought s that her prayers had. much to do s with my success. I shall expect you all to help me in that way. Be e lieve me, your affectionate brother. G ROVER C'IEvELAND. r, The reference to the Governor's r mother is made the more pathetic by the knowledge that her death s occurred but. a few weeks previous to the writing of the letter. Who can help feeling that in it Governor Cleveland poured out his whole r heart! We must remember, also, that. what he promised has already crj stalized into performance. Gov s ernor Cleveland has spent very lit e tle time in '"the purely ornamental e part" of his ofice ; he has in very n truth made the Governorship "a a business engagement." between the people of the State and hinself, and performed the duties assigned him "with an eye single" to the in terests of his employers, the people. e We feel justified in5 saying here, upon the authority of one whose word is always accepted without question in South Carolina, that eGovernor Cleveland did not desire to be nominated for President, and preferred to be allowed to serve his eifll term as the Chief Magistrate of ethe State of New York. Indeed, a resec oledge of his wishes in this rsetwas used as an argument against his nomination. l t is, how - ever, an additional reason for his election. eThere is pathos inexpressible in e Governor Cleveland's exclamation rthat if his motber were alive he would feel so much safer, and that he had always thought that her gprayere had had much to do with hissuccess. Who will deny it, or dout i iSurlyhe who in the 1first moment of his elevation to a position of exalted importance Sgives his first thought to his nmo r ther,. and ca:ls her blessed, is a man whom the American poop1e can safely trust. There is in the letter published to-day a strain of homely feeling, a suggestion of simple earnestness and truth, which a singles Governor Cleveland out-a the man for the time. A man of t the people, possessing and cherish. -s ing every domestic affection, loyal - jto his public trust as to his publice ,trust as to his own household, he n!can.be depended on to keep in it mind, always the interests and the d Irights of all conditions of men. hi Better by far than any platform of d promiss is the simple, heartfelt let. d ter in which Grover Cleveland pro i- claims his belief in straightforward a and honest methods, and avows his s faith in the efficacy of a mother's e prayers. t "By Jove," said the lynx-eyed n proof-.reader on a Boston paper, e "somebody go down and kick slug * r- nine into the street. Here's three *n times I've marked beans on him in >f that poem or Julia Ward H owe's, *e anid every time he spells.it 'paans.' >f 'My soul sings ptmans to the gods r- of spring.' There's 10.8 of sense in that, isn't there?" ~ Where'd~ he - d ever learn to spell beans that way ?" r, And his face was livid with wrath ,e as once more he saved the poem er from destruction. ,.
