Crtesus, gilt martyr of a bank,
Barred round with ingots yellow,
The poet whom you do not thank,
Is not a '-wretched fellow !"
The garret of his dreaming sleep,
Is tapestried with splendor ;
Whose glitter makes no angels weep,
His heart is true and tender.
Poet, the Dives you despise,
Has pleasure in his money !
Dear butterfly, some beauty lies
To bees in making honey !
The gold and jewels of your flowers,
lie copies in his treasure;
Must all your brother's happy hours,
Be meted with your measure ?
Fair woman, whose averted eyes,
Cast scorn on shame's poor daughter,
The soul whose kindred yours denies,
Was limpid once as water !
Who kept thee from the precipice,
Where sin with love-lips kissed her?
Through Hiin who granted Mary's peace,
Pray for thy wretched sister !
And thou, on earth most desolate,
Blame not the passer by thee,
Whose veiled eyes droop not out of hate,
Whose thoughts no love deny thee !
If custom-kept, she walks apart,
Her pity grows the stronger ;
And louder echo through her heart,
His words, —"Go,sin no longer!"
If there arc mountains in the world,
Are there not also valleys!
Where Love's blue standard swings unfurl'd,
There every true heart rallies.
Ranked in one hope, the difference dies.
That keeps us from each other,
And underneath millennial skies,
Each man becomes a brother.

A Mournful View of the Situation.
The Boston Advertiser takes the fol
lowing mournful view of the situation:
Pensylvania and Ohio, States which
have seemed to be securely Republican,
and which we carried last fall by aggre
gate majorities of nearly 60,000, have
seen those majorities disappear, and
we lose the one, while the other is
saved at best by a close contest, which
leaves their Legislature still in doubt.—
In lowa we have also largely reduced
majorities. If, morever,thecommon im
pression as to the influence of the Octo
ber elections does not prove to be er
roneous, and still more, if the causes
which have produced these misfortunes
do not suddenly cease to operate, we
may expect to see New York imperil
ed, if not lost, at the next month's elee
It adds not a little to the mortifica
tion with which this result must be re
ceived, that our heavy loss in Ohio is
so plainly due in large part to the pro
posed amendment to the State Consti
tution, introducing impartial suffrage.
Here, in Massachusetts, our record is
clear upon this point, and what we
have undertaken to prescribe for oth
ers has had its place for years upon our
own statute-book. But it is little less
than humiliating to have this public
demonstration, that after such a period
of awakening as the nation has now
had, a great State like Ohio, which is
supposed to be well advanced in its
political ideas, and which has not been
thought to hold any doubtful position
as regards the reconstruction of the
South, should thus draw back, as did
Connecticut before her, from the need
ed step in amendment of her own insti

MRS. IJSI'OLS'B WARDROBE FOR
Full Ex|lmni" on °f 'lie Whole Mutter
lmportant Letter from Mr*. Lincoln
ller Complaints of the Ingratitude
of Republican Olliee-Seoker*.
(From New York Paper.)
The announcement has a'ready been
made in these columns that Mrs. Abra
ham Lincoln, widow of the late Presi
dent, was compelled to dispose of some
of her personal effects in order to eke
out the slender income which remain
ed to her after the settlement of her
husband's estate, and that she was, in
fact, in this city under the assumed
name of Mrs. Clarke, for the purpose of
superintending thesaleof her property.
As Mrs. Lincoln is no longer anxious
to withhold from the public the facts
in the case, there can be no impro
priety in imparting further informa
tion upon the subject, as obtained from
the lady herself.
THE PROPERTY LEFT BY MR. LINCOLN.
Upon the death of Mr. Lincoln an
effort was made to appropriate for his
wife and family the sum he would have
received from the United States had he
lived to have finished his second term
of office, to wit: $100,000; but it re
sulted in appropriating but $25,000, the
amount of one year's salary as Presi
dent. Of this sum, $3,000 were requir
ed to discharge certain standing obli
gations, leaving about $22,000, which,
with the house and lot in Springfield,
Illinois, owned by Mr. Lincoln pre
vious to his election to the Presidency
in 1860, was all the property which fell
to Mrs. Lincoln. Her present income,
she states, is but $1,700 a year, of which
$.300 comes from her old house in
Springfield. It appears from this that
Mr. Lincoln not only saved no money
while he occupied the White House,
hut really lived beyond his income,
which,in connection with the natural re
luctance of his widow to return to the
simple style of living to which she had
been used before her residence in Wash
ington, has compelled her to part with
some of her personal effects at the pres
LETTER FROM MRS. LINCOLN.
Appended are several letters written
by Mrs. Lincoln in relation to this most
unpleasant business, the contents of
which will surprise the public. The
first, in order of their date, appeared to
be the following:
CHICAGO, September 1, 18G7.
"MR. BRADY: A notice in a New

tion, that you sold articles of value on
commission, prompts me to write you.
The articles I am sending you to dis
pose of were gifts of dear friends, which
only argent necessity compe's me to part
with, and I am especially anxiously
that they shall not be sacrificed. The
circumstances are peculiar and painful
ly embarrassing; therefore, I hope you
will endeavor to realize as much as
possible for than. Hoping soon to
hear from you, J remain, very respect

As the negotiations with Mr. Brady
proceeded, Mrs. Lincoln deemed it
best that her name should appear, the
reasons for which are given in the fol

[Extractof a letter from Mrs. Lincoln]
"Through the ingratitude of the
Republicans towards the memory of
the late lamented President, the fami
ly of their chief have been left to suffer
want and destitution. Therefore it is
natural to suppose that when it became
imperatively necessary for Mrs Lin
coln, the honored and beloved wife of
the late President, to dispose of apparel
and jewelry to enable her to meet the
common necessities of life, it was cer
tainly in better taste that Mrs. Clarke,
rather than Mrs. Lincoln, should ap

overwhelmning sorrow she was by an
ungrateful Republican party deprived
of her rightful maintenance, they should
appreciate her delicacy in desiring
to keep her true name and their own
ignominy from being known in the

sad matter, at the same time expresses
her regret that the ingratitude of Re
publicans may do injury to the Repub

CHICAGO, September 22, 1867.
W. 11. BRADY ESQ.—YOU write me
that reporters are after you concerning
my goods deposited with you—which
in consideration of my urgent wants,
I assure you I am compelled to relin
quish—and also that there is a fear that
these newsmen will seize upon the
painful circumstances of your having
these articles placed in your hands to
injure the Republican party political
ly. In the cause of this party and for
universal freedom, my beloved hus
band's precious life was sacrificed, nor
for the world would I do anything to
injure the cause. My heart is ever
anxious for its success, notwithstand
ing the very men for whom my noble
husband did so much, unhesitatingly
deprived me of all means of support
and left mein a pitiless condition. The
necessities of life are upon me, urgent
and imperative, and I am scarcely re
moved from want—so different from
the lot my loving and devoted husband
would have assigned me—and I find
myself left to struggle for myself. I
am compelled to pursue the only course
left me—immediately within the next
month to sell these goods, and If not
wholly disposed of by Wednesday, Oc
tober 30th, on that day please sell them
at auction, after advertising very large
ly that they are my goods.
"MRS. A. LINCOLN".
STILL FURTHER EXPLANATION.
The last letter of which mention
will he made at this time, is the follow
"W. 11. Brady, Esq.:
"I have reflected upon your remarks,
and have concluded to leave everything
to your good judgment and excellent
sense. My great, great sorrow and
loss have made me painfully sensitive;
but as my feelings and pecuniary com
fort were never regarded or even rec
ognized in the midst of my over
whelming bereavement, now that I
am pressed in a most startling manner
for means of subsistence, I do not know
why I should shrink from an oppor
tunity of improving my trying posi
tion. Being assured that all you do will
be appropriately executed, and in a
manner that will not startle me very
greatly and excite as little comment as
possible, again I shall leaveallin your
hands. I am passing through a very
painful ordeal, which the country, in
remembrance of my noble and eleva
ted husband, should have spared me.
I remain, with great respect,
"P. S.—As you mention that my
goods have been valued at $24,060, I
will be willing to make a reduction of
SB,OOO, and relinquish them for $16,000
in five-twenties— nothing less. If this
is not accomplished, I will continue
to advertise largely until every article
is sold. I must have means to live, at

lart J- Reconstruction.
During the war there was a " Union
Party ." Its platform was "the Union,
the whole Union, and nothing but the
Union." The "boys in blue" fought
upon this platform. The war over, the
radical negro influence commenced a
reconstruction of the platform of the
party and succeeded in disorganizing the
party by taking from the platform the
Union plank and putting in its place
negro political equality. Since then the
platform has been going down —down
—until public opinion has determined
to completely crush it. The black
thing is already a wreck, and by the
time the November elections are over
the radical platform will be among the
things that once had an existence.
What next ? Will the leaders persist
in the wrong—persist in pursuing a
course which must continue to drive
the Union men of the war to the sup
port of the old Democratic organiza
tion ?—or will they open the door to
all loyal men opposed to negro political
equality and the Democratic organiza
tion and its leaders? We have no
doubt the same leaders who controlled
the Democratic party during the war
will have a controlling influence in that
party should it again get into power,
but we cannot see that any measures
they would propose would be more
destructive of the Union, the happiness
and prosperity of our people, than the
measures which have and may be forced
upon the country by the radicals who
have thus far been too successful in
controlling the party organization op
posed to the Democratic party.—Hunt
VOL. 62.—WHOLE No. 5,415.
NAPOLEON THE SECOND.
In 1840, by permission of the British
Government, and solicitation of King
Louis Phillippe, sqggested by M.
Thiers, the mortal remains of the first
Napoleon were transferred from the
rocky-prison isle of St Helena to a
French frigate, La Bella Poul, com
manded by the Prince de Joinville.—
A week before Christmas, 1840, these re
mains were deposited, with remark
able funeral pomp, in the shape of the
Hotel des Invalide, in Paris. And
thus, nearly twenty years : fter this
great exile's death, was realized his
last wish, conveyed in the testamen
tary document, which England has al
so given to France: "It is my wish
that my ashes may repose on the banks
of the Seine, in the midst of the French
people, whom I loved so well."
Louis Napoleon reigns in France un
der the title of "Napoleon the Third,"
and some persons have wondered, or
affected to wonder, why, being only
the second of his family upon the
throne of France, he calls himself the
third. The case is easy of solution.
When Charles II came back to London,
on the 29th May, 1060, he at once be
gan to date his public documents, as
then issued, "in the twelfth year of our
reign," though it was only the first.
His father had been executed in front
of his palace at Whitehall, in January,
1649, and there had been a Republican
Commonwealth in England from that
date until May, 1600, when Charles
Stuart came back. In like manner, on
the restoration of the Bourbons, in 1824,
the Count de Provence, succeeding
Louis XVI, his brother, who was
guillotined in January, 1793, took the
title of Louis the Eighteenth, on the pre
tence that the Dauphin then succeeded
his father as Louis the Seventeenth and
from that period until his death, a
prisoner in the Temple, in June, 1795,
really was a monarch by right, if not
by fact. Louis XVIII, ignoring the
republic and the empire as much as
if they had never been heard of, com
menced in 1814, by declaring in all offi
cial documents that they were execut
ed " in the twentieth year of our
reign." As for Napoleon 111, he fol
lowed the above examples, took it for
granted that his uncle's abdication in
1815, when he proclaimed his son "un
der the title of Napoleon the Second,
Emperor of the French," actually
made him Emperor, though the poor
chilu was then at Vienna, never re
turned to Paris, and died in Austria at
the age of twenty-one.
It is understood that, at the recent
meeting at Salzburg, of the French and
Austrian Embassadors, Napoleon re
quested Francis Joseph togive him the
ashes of Napoleon 11, that they might
be interred in his native France, and
and that this request has been acceded
to. The coffin is to be removed from
the Imperial burial place of the Im
perial line of Hapsburg, and deposited,
it is said, in the vaults of the Abbey
of St. Denis, near Paris, the ancient
burial ground of the Borubon kings of
France. When the ashes of the great
Napoleon were placed in their final res
ting place, "by the banksof the Seine,"
Louis Phillippe tried to make political
capital out of it, but cannot be said to
have succeeded. Neither will the funer
al of the titular Napoleon 11, cause any
great emotion in Paris, eoine when it
may. Napoleon's marriage with Ma
ria Louisa, an Austrian Princess, to ef
fect which the much loved empress Jo
sephine had to be divorced, caused
great dissatisfaction in Paris. He
wanted an heir, but France would have
been better pleased if he had married
the daughter of one of his own soldiers,
rather than seek to ally himself with
such a line as that of Hapsburg. Lit
tle Napoleon was born in Paris, in
March, 1811, and the title of "King of
Rome" was immediately conferred up
on him. He was only three years old
when his mother was compelled to fly
with him from Paris, to which neither
of them ever returned. On Napoleon's
reappearance from Elba, he used all
means in his power to induce Marie
Louisa to rejoin him at Paris, with
their son, but she refused. Even after
the abdication, in 1815, there was a dis
cussion in political circles respecting
the rights of Napoleon 11, but Fouehe
and Wellington turned the scale by de
claring for the second restoration of
the hated Bourbons. The future life
of the ex King of Rome was spent at
Scmnbrun, near Vienna, where he was
educated in a maucer to stifle hope and
ambition. His mother was made
grand duchess of Parma, but her only
son, once chief of the French Empire,
was expressly precluded from succeed
ing her on that petty throne. He was
created Duke de Reichstadt, and rais
ed to the rank of an Austrian prince.
He received a military education, but
all mention of his father was prohibi
ted. At last when he was twenty years
old, he met Marshal Marmont, one <>f
his father's old generals, and from him
learned more about his father than he
had ever heard before. The revolution
of 1839, raised a hope among the Bona
partists that France would remember
and recall the dea 1 emperor's son, but
the craft of Louis Phillippe prevail
ed and prevented this. Finally he yiel
ded to the insidious disease of consump
tion, dying on the22d of July, 1832, the
very day on which, eleven years before,
he had been informed of his father's
death. His body rests in the family
vault, of the Hapsburg line, in Vienna,
and his heart was deposited in the Ca
thedral and his intestines in the Church
of the Augustines.
Concerning one who thus lived and
died unfortunate and nominally eleva
ted butreallyobscureit will bedifflcult to
in Paris. There may bea magnificent fu
neral show, which will delight the Par
isians; butihe return of the mortal
remains of this poor lad to his native
J city will not otherwise cause any but
the most temporary sensation.— Wash

A RECEIPT WORTH ONE THOUSAND
DOLLARS.—The Ohio Cultivator says,
take one pound of sal soda and a half
pound of unslacked lime, put them in
a gallon of water and boil twenty min
utes, let it stand till cool, then drain off,
and put in a small jug or jar ; soak your
dirty clothes over night or until they
are wet through, then wring them
out and rub on plentyof soap, and
in one boiler of clothes well covered
with water, add one teacupful of wash
ing fluid; boil half an hour briskly,
then wash them thoroughlythrough one
suds,rinse, aud yourold clothes will look
better than the old way of washing
twice before boiling. This is an in
valuable receipt, and I want every
poor tired woman to try it. I think
with a patent washtub to do the little
rubbing, a washerwoman might take
the oi l Bible and compose herself on
