Walt Whitman. I shall not easily forget the first time 1 ever saw Abraham Lincoln. It must have been about the 18th or 1 9th of 'February, 1SG1. It was rather a pleasant afternoon in New York city, as he arrived here from the west, to remain a few hours, and then pass ou to Washington, to prepare for .Ms inauguration. I saw him in Broadway, near the site of -the present post-office. He cameg05vnfWLthink5.frorn.U)anal. street, to stop at tfce Astor House. The broad spaces, sidewalks and street in the neighborhood and for some distance, were crowded with solid masses of people many thousands. The omnibuses and other v chicles had all been turned ofT, leaving an unusual hush in that busy part of the city. Pres ently two or three shabby hack barouches made their way with some difficulty through the crowd and drew up at the Astor house entrance. A tall figure stepped out of the centre of these barouches, paused leisurely on the sidewalk, looked sp at the dark jrranite walls and looming archi tecture of the grand old hotel their after a relieving: stretch of arms and legs, turned round for over a minute to scan slowl' and good-humoredly the appearance of the vast and silent crowds. There were no speeches no compliments no welcome as far as I could hear, not a word said. Still much anxiety was concealed in that quiet. Cautious persons had fear ed some marked insult of indig nity to the President-elect for he possessed no personal propularity at all in New York city, and very little political. But it was evi dently tacitly agreed that if the few political supporters of Mr. Lincoln present would entirely abstain from any demonstration on their side, the immense majority., who, were anything but supporters, would abstain on their side also. The result was. a sulky, unbroken silence, such .as certainly never characterized so great a New York rowd. From the top of an omnibus (driven up one side, close by, and blocked by the curbstone and the j crowds I had, I say, a capital view of it all, and especially of Mr Lincoln, his look and gait his perfect composure and coolness his unusual and uncouth height, his dress of complete black, stove T)ine hat pushed back on his head, its dark-brown complexion, seamed and wrinkled yet canny-looking face, his black, bushy head of hair, disproportionally longsneck, and his hands held behind as he stood .observing the people. He looked with curiosity upon that immense .sea of faces, and the sea of faces returned the look with similar curiosity. In both there was a dash of comedy almost farce sucn as Shakespear puts in his blackest tragedies. Ihe crowd that hemmed around consisted, 1 should think, of -thirty or forty thousand men, not a single one his personal friend, while I have no doubt (so frenzied were the ferments of the times) many an assassin's knife and pistol lurked in hip or breast pocket there, ready soon as break an riot came. But no break or riot came. The bill figure gave another relieving stretch or two of arms and legs, then, with a moderate pace, and accompanied by a few unknown persons, ascended the portico steps of the Astor House, disappeared through its broad enterance, and the dumb show ended. Feminine Economy Exchange. A traveler by the terminus of the Utah Northern to Montana, recently relates the following ex perience: On arriving I had an apt illustration of woman's econ omy, and howad verse some women are to buvins: bills of exchange On my trip to Helena from Vir ginia city, a middle-aged female was my only companion. On one occasion, wishing to show my gal hmtry, 1 assisted her to alight. Under ordinary ciscumstances, this would have been something of a job, for she was at least six feet in height, but when I felt her weight 'I'becameat once convinced that I had over estimated my strength. 1 could not resist when again in the stage, asking her about the matter. After some hesi tation she -said that believing me. to le -an .honest person, not connected with any band of road agents, and besides not having the slightest fear of me single-handed, she would "inform me that she had quilted into a skirt, then on her person, tire snug little sum o'f thirty-five hundred dollars 5k twenty dollar gold pieces which she brought from Eureka, Nevada. She dftln't believe in banks, bank ers or express cempanies: she pre ferred to have her money where she could put her hands on it. 1 was permitted to examine the aforesaid skirt, and found her statement to be true. -There was more ready cash within that coach, than any out-sider would have supposed. A Fisherman Eatenvfey Alligators. Quitman (Ga.) Free Press. Almost everybody in Lowndes county knew Downing, lie was a. fisherman, and for years has sup plied the Valdosjtu market with fish from the Ocean pond, lie fished for several days, or until he had a load, and then lie went to marled. His protracted absence during the first part of last week attracted the attention of his Xrionds, who at length went to his Abode. Arriving at the. landimr where he kept his boat, they found his fish-box and canoes, but the fisherman was missing. Soon af ward the' reached the bank of the pond, and saw two alligators emerge from the grass near bv and come toward the shore, apparently -seeking a fight. A gun was pro- t cured, and both alligators were killed and dragged ashore. Their stomachs contained human flesh, bones, and particles of clothing, and other things that showed plain ly the fate of poor Downing. Joy is a prize unbought, and is freest, purest in its flow, when it comes unsought. No getting into heaven as a place will compass it. You must carry it with you, eke it is not there. You must have it in Tou as the music of a well-ordered soul, the fire of a holy purpose, ther -welling np, out of the central depths, of eter- ' nal springs that hide ,their waters there.
