Tho most honest of all Quakers, Toby Slmpton, lived in London, In a pleas ant Httlo dwelling graced by tho pres enco of his daughter Mary. Sho was not quito seventeen years of ago ; was charmingly fuirj had blue eyes, and possessed as much modesty ns beauty. All the young men of her father's nc- qunintaiico wero her suitors; all thoso of tho neighborhood sought to gain her notice. Valu efforts! Mary was no eo- ijuctto, and instead of enjoying tho effect produced by her charms, sho was vexed on account of the manners of all her admirers, except ono Edward Wcresford, a young artist, admitted to tho intimacy of tho family. A very simple event had caused this friendship. A premature death had carried off tho Quaker's wife. Sho was youug nnd beautiful; nnd desiring to perpctuato tho imago of her who was so dear to hlra, ho had caused tho artist to come to tho bed of death. It was thero that Edward saw tho dcsolato damsel ; it was there u serious first lovo took place, amid tho tears of ono and tho pious work of tho other. Tho year which elapsed after this epoch had but strongthened tho bond formed under these auspices, and tho young man had showed to tho father botli his desiro and hope. Tho excellent Toby had no reason whatever for opposing tho mutual In clinations of tho two young persons. Without being rich, Edward earned, by means of his pcucil, what suffered to support a family honorably. His father, Mr. Wcresford, on old merchant of tho city, had retired from business Hi it fortune increased moro than ten fold. This was n raro example of rapid success In speculation so rapid indeed that fuw wero nblo to follow its progress. Yet Wcresford, of so blunt and stern disposition, lived ulono in u suburb of London, and without caring what his son was doing, left htm entirely at lib erty. Ho was ono of thoso accommo dating egotists who troifblo no one, provided they trouble not them per sons of perfect complalsanco if you ak nothing of them. Edwnrd, thercforo, could without In terruption, court ids pretty Quakeress, well assured that his father would nev er think of opposing his ninrrlage. Tho situation of tho loving couplo was, to all appearance, very prosperous; and honest Toby did not put off tho day of their marrlago longer than to collect tho arrearages of hla rents : ho destined tho money for tho extraordinary ex penscs of tho ceremony. For this pur poso ho went to his country seat, soma miles from Loudon, In order toregulato his affairs. Ho had passed but ono doy from homo ; nnd ns ho was about to put up his horso for tho night, ho per ceived nt somo distance ix horseman, who had barred tho road. Ho stopped uncertain whether to go on or turn back, Mcanwlillo tho horsomnn advanced towards him. Tho Quaker could not oven think of escaping; ho thercforo put on tx good face, nnd brought Ms horse to n walk. In approaching tho man who caused ids uneasiness, ho per ceived that ho wns masked, n grlovous augury, which wns booh confirmed. Tho unknown showed a pistol and ill' rccted thu muzzlo to tho traveller, do mondlng hla purso. Tho Quaker did not want courage, but calm by charaO' tcr, lnoffen8lvo by religion, nnd ocn unablo, without arms, to resist an arm cd man, ho pulled from hla pockot very coolly, n pureo containing twolvo guln ens. Tho robber took it, counted tho pieces, and left tho poor man whom ho had stopped, to pass on, whilo ho put hla horso to tho trot. But tho robber, scolng tho -slight reslstanco ho had op- poseu, nun aiiurou by tho hopo of a socond booty, immediately rclolnod lionost Toby, placed himself nnow In his way, and presenting his pistol ns licroro.crlod out to him, "Your Wiitcht" Iho Quaker, surprised, was neverthe less unmoved. Ho coolly took his watch from tho fob, looked at tho hour. nnd put tho costly nrtlclo into tho hand of tho robber, saying : "Now, I beseech thee, pormlt mo to go to my dwelling my daughter will bo uneasy nt my absence." "A moment more," replied tho mask ed crtvallor.tho moro and moro hardened by this docility; "swear to mo Hint you liavo no other sum" "I never swear," said tho Quaker. "Very well. Affirm that you havo no other mouoy, nnd on tho faith of an honest robber, incapable of taking by vlolenco from n man who yields with so good n graco, 1 will let you cotitlnuo on your journey." Tho Quaker rellccted n moment nnd shook his head. "Whntthinkest thou," hosald grave ly, "thou hnst discovered that I am a Quaker, nnd will not betray tho truth, though at tho peril of my life. Thus I declare to theo that I havo under my saddlo cloth a sum of two hundred pounds sterling."' "Two hundred pounds sterling!" cried tho robber, whilo lib oyes spark led through his mask. "But if thou art good ns thou art kind," replied tho Quaker, "thou wilt lonvo mo this money. 1 wish to cstab lisli my daughter, nnd this sum is ncc cssnry ; for a long titno I shall not havo a similar sum at my disposal. Tho dear child loveth her intended, nnd it will bj crut'l to delay this union. Thou hast loved, poradventuro, and thou wouldst not commit this wicked act." "What caro I for your daughter, and her lover nnd their marriage? Less talk, and moro promptltudo of execu tion! I must have this money." Toby, with a sigh, lifted tho cloth, took a bag heavy enough, nnd passed It slowly to tho masked man. Ills Inten tion then was to gallop off, "Slop again, friend Quaker." said the other laying his hand upon tho bridle; "as soon as you arrive, you will denounce mo to the magistrates. This is according to order. I have nothing tosay ; but I must havo tho advancoof tho pro cess of to-night, at least. My maro Is feeblo, and Is, besides, fatigued ; your horso, on tho contrary, appears vigor ous, for tho weight of this bag does not Incommode him. Alight and glvo mo your beast; you may tako mine, if you will." Ho was slow in beginning to comply, becauso theso cross exigencies wero of it naturo to raise tho choler of tho most patient man. Tho good Toby, however, descended, and resignedly took tho sorry Jado which was left him in ex change. "If I had known." ho con tented himself in thinking, "I would havo lied nt tho first encounter with tills rogue, and certainly it is not with tills courser that ho would havo gained Hi tho incc." During this tlmo tho masked man ironically thanking liim for his com plaisance, applied botli spurs and disappeared. Bcforo ho reached London, Toby had tlmo to rellecton his misfortune, on tho chagrin of tho two young persous who loved, and whoso happiness would bo put off. Tho sum taken from hi in was Irrevocably lost. Not tho least of it could bo regained, nor could tho auda cious robber bo recognized. Mcanwhilo ns a sudden idea struck him, ho stop ped. Yes," taid he, "this means may suc ceed. If this man liveth In London, 1 may poradventuro meet him again. Heaven, no doubt, hath willed that ho should havo been so very Imprudent." Somewhat consoled, by I know not what hope, Toby went homo without showing nny troublo, or faying aught of his adventure. He did not go to tho magistrate, but embraced his daughter, who huspected nothing, and lay down nnd slept. His faith was in Qod. Next day ho secretly thought of co operating with Providence in making research. Ho let tho maro out of tho stnblo whero Mia hnd passed tho night, and threw tho bridlo over her neck, In hopes that tho animal, led by habit, would naturally go to tho houso of her master. Ho therefore sent off tho poor beast which had been fasting, to wan dor at largo through tho streets of Lon don, and followed her. Hut ho suppos ed her to havo moro Instinct than sho had: for n long tlmo sho went right and left, making a thousand turns and returns without aim, without direction, sometimes at n stand, then taking a contrary courao. Toby despaired. "My robber," thought ho "doth not ilvo in London, What folly In mo! instead of going to tho magistrato when I had tho tlmo, to have suffered mysolf to holed away by this wretched imlmal " Suddculy, howover, tho beast pricked up.hor oars nud set off on a brUk trot, followed closely by tho Quaker. "Stop! stop!" was tho cry on all hands. "Detain mo not!" cried tho Qua kcr ; "I entrentyou, detain mo not!" And nuxlou3ly followlngwlthliisoye tho course of tho nulmitl, ho saw her rapidly entering tho gnlo of n dwelling In thobiiburb. "Tls hero," thought thoQtinker, rals lng his oyes toward heaven, In thanks to Provldonco. In reality, in passing tho houso, ho perceived In tho court a domestic, who patted tho poor beast nnd conducted her to tho stable. Ho demanded nt once tho namo of tho proprietor of tho house. "What, havo you nover been in thoso parts ?" was tho answer, "that you don't know that this is tho dwelling of tho rich merchant, Weresford?" Tho Quaker stood petrified. "Wcresford," repeated tho neighbor, who believed Hint ho had not under stood hint, "tho man who mndoso rap- Id a fortuno." 'Excuso mo, my friend, oxcuso mo, replied Toby. Ho could not recover from his stupor, 00L. "Wcresford, tho father of Edward, n mnn of noto, my robber I" Hohellovcd ho was dreaming, nnd desired to como to himself. Meantlmo many examples occurred to his memory of many respectnhlo persons who wero in Icnguo with banditti. Toby resolved to Invcstlgato tho mystery. Ho entered boldly Into tho court, and demanded to spoak with tho proprietor, who had Just gone to bed, though It was near midday n now Indication of a night of fatlguo ! Tho Quaker insisted on being Introduced, and soon found himself in Wcresford's bedchamber. Ho not being used to being disturbed, rubbed hla eyes nnd demanded with somo impctlcnco, t "Who nro you, sir? What do you wnnt with mo?" The sound of tho volco wns recog nized by Toby, nnd thoroughly con vinced him. Ho tranquilly drow n chair nnd seated himself nt tho bedside, Ids hat on his head. "Do you remain covered?" cried tho merchant, in surprise. "I nm n Quaker," nnswered tho oth er, with much calmness, "and thou knowest that such Is our usngo." At theso words of tho Quaker, Weres ford sat up In bed and eyed tho stran ger. Ho doubtless recognized him, for ho turned deadly pale. "Well," demanded he, stammering, "what is it If you please the tho subject that you como about V" "I usk thy allowaneo for.appearingso pressing," answered Toby; "but bo tween friends It matters not much, and I como without ceremony, to nsk for tho watch that thou borrowedst of mo yesterday." "Tho-wntch?" "I vnltto It much; it belonged to my poor wife, nnd I cannot do without it My excellont friend, tho nldcrman, would never forglvo mo wero I to fail for ono day to return tho Jewel to his sister. ' Tho namo of nn alderman appeared to makosomo impression upon Weres lorn. YVitiiout waiting an answer, Toby continued "Thou wilt do mo tho pleasure to m turn also tho twelve guineas which I lent thee at the samo time. Novcrthe less if thou nrt in need of them, I con sent to let thco havo them for somo time, on condition that thou givnst mo a receipt." Thoschemo pf tho Quaker so discon certed the old merchant that ho could not deny tho possession of tho articles, but, not liking to acknowledge tho crime, ho hesitated to uuswor, when Toby added, "I wisii thco to participate at tho ap proaching marringo of my daughter Mary. I had reserved tho sum of two hundred pounds sterling for tho bridal of tho espoused, but an accident hap pened to mo last night on tho road to London I was completely robbed, so I come to pray theo to glvo thy son a portion, which othcrwlso I would not havo asked of thee." "My son?" "Yes. Dost thou not know that ho is Mary's lover, and that 'tls ho that la to marry her?" "Edward!" exclaimed tho morchant throwing himself from tho bed. 'Edward Weresford," mildlj replied tho Quaker, whilo quietly taking a pinch of snuff. "Come, do tills thing for him. I would not, verily, that ho should know aught of what passed last night, and It thou dost not furnish him with tho sum i promised, it will bo well for mo to tell him how I lost it." Weresford run to a bureau, and drew out a casket with a triple lock, opened it aud returned successively to Toby his purse, his watch, nnd his bag of money. "Very well," said tho (Junker as ho receh'cd thorn. "I see that I had rea son to count on thee." "Is this all that you sou?" demanded tiio merchant with ono of ills blunt airs. "Nay, I yet need something of thy friendship." "Speak." "Thou wilt dlaenhent him. i seo not but Hint somo one may say I havo spojulated on thy fortune." In finishing theso words tho Quaker left the chamber. "No," murmured ho, when ho found himself alone, "children aro not an swerable for tho faults of their parents. Mary shall marry tho son of this man, but tho stolen monoy sho shall nover touch." When ho reached tho court, ho called out to Wcresford, who had como to tho window, "ho! my dear friend, l brought back thy maro, return my horso." Somo minutes uftorwards, Toby, well mounted, cnrylng by tho top hla bag of monoy, furnished with hla watch and purso, reached homo at a modernto trot. "I" madou visit this morning to thy father, Bald ho to Edward, whom ho precelvcd unlorlng with him; "I bellovo wo shall now agree, Two hours afterwards Weroaford ar rived nt tho houso of Toby, nnd taking him apart, said: "Honest Quaker, your proceedings havo deoply affected my very soul! You might havo dishonored uio dls honored my son; ruined mo in his es tlmntlon, and caused tho mlsfortuno of refusing him your daughter. Youhnvo shown yourself u man In head nnd heart, I shall not again blush lu your prcsonco. Tako theso papers. Farowoll! you will never seo mo again." And ho departed. Tho Quaker, left nlouo, opened tho papers. They showed obligations or considerable valuoon tho llrat bankers or London, wiUi along list of names, aud opposlto each uamo, In figures, tho Hum greater or less In amount. A billet was added wherein tho Quaker read ns follows : "Theso nro tho names of poraona who wero robbed ; tho figures aro tho sums which ought to bo restored; us to tho monoy with tho bunkers, In my uamo, let It go to tho strangers, but make tho restitution socretly yourself.

Bloody Chancclloravillc. A short time before tils death tho Into Secretary Stanton said It pained him to seo tho opinion so prevalent that Mr. Lincoln was nn habitual Joker.nnd that ho wns nover serious. Mr. Stanton said it wns n great error, nnd related tho fol lowing incident to provu tho Injtistlco of tho popular Impression : Mr. Lincoln was very netiBltlvoof tho criticisms of tho newspaper prosa, be lieving It, as ho asserted, tho truo voico of tho people. Tho failures of McDow oil nnd McClellnn and Burnsldo nnd Popo with the Army of tho Potomac, nnd tho accompanying criticisms of tho newspapers, had almost crazed him. Tlmo nnd again ho would free himself from tho White House, nnd seek Mr. Stanton's littlo office: the only place in Washington, ho often remarked, whero ho was Ireofrom bores. Ho often talked to Mr. Stanton of re signing, or of pressing upon Congress tho propriety of giving to military or naval men tho control of tho army and navy. It was during this period that lie conceived tho idea of putting Hook er in command of tho Army ot the Po tomac and havo him mako an effort for success. Ho had a good opinion of Hooker, thinking him to bo an honest nnd slncero patriot nnd soldier. Ho put him in command, nnd did every thing in ids power to mako him fight what ho wanted to mako tho closing battlo of tho war. Accordingly, when Hooker got under way and news camo that at Chanco'lorsvlllo ho would mako his light, Mr. Lincoln was in the great est state of mental excitement. From tho timo that Hooker began to march, until tho smoke of battlo hnd fairly cleared from tho fatal Held of Chancel loravlllc, the President scarcely knew what it was to sleep. It will bo remem bered that tho fight lasted three days. During tho first two days it looked as if nooker was nbout to accomplish what so many had failed to do, but early on tho third day tho usual half hour dis patches began to mnko matters look worse. That whole day Mr. Lincoln was miserable. Ho ato nothing, nnd would see no ono but Mr. Stanton. As it grew dark the dispatches censed com ing. Tiio President would walk from tho White Houso to tho War Depart ment nud anxiouslylnquirofor Hooker. Tho night was dark nnd stormy nbout as mean a night as was over experienc ed in Washington. About seven o'clock tho President ceased hh visits to tho Wur Deportment. An hour afterward n dispatch of an indefinite character was received, and Mr. Stanton hurried with it to tho Whito House. Ho found Mr. Lincoln walking tho room, nnd, ns ho entered, tho ngoniziiig nppcarnneoof tho Presi dent so terrified the Secretary that it wns with difficulty ho could spenk. Mr. Lincoln tnlked to him liko a wild man, and seizing tho dispatch from his hand, read It, and simply remarked: "Stan ton thero Is no hopo yet!" At Mr. Stanton's solicitation, tho President ac companied him to tho War Department where they agreed to spend tho tlmo together until bomcthing deflnito was heard from Hooker. For four hours, tlie longest and most wearisomo of ids life, said Mr. Stanton, they waited bo fore tho dispatch nniioitnclnjc tho re treat of Hooker was received. When Mr. Lincoln had read It, ha throw up his hands aud exclaimed: "My God! Stanton our causo Is lost. Wo aro ruin ed ! Wo nro ruined! And such a fear ful lnfsof life. My God! this la moro than I can endure," Ho stood tremb ling llkoa leaf, tho perspiration rolling from his brow. Ho put on Ills hat ami coat, nnd becan naclng tho floor. For fivo minutes ho wns silent, and then turning to Stanton lie tnid: "If 1 am not about to morrow morning, don't feel alarmed. Defeated again, anil so many killed! What will tho people say ?" As ho mode tho remark ho went to open thu door to go out. His actions alarmed Mr. Stanton, and ho stopped him, nud entreated him to return, Hint they might talk .and act liko men. With difficulty ho had him return, and Mr. Stanton began to try to clicor him, Ho finally got him to assent to retlro to bed, and lenvo for tho army tho noxt mornjng which ho did. Lin coln afterwards told Mr. Stunlon that when ho told him about not being alarmed if ho was not about tho next morning, ho had fully niado up Ids mind to go to tho Potomac and drown himself. Mr. Stanton says .ho thought at the tlmo tho President contemplated suicide, nnd nover felt so frightened during his lifetime. "G. W." O. Washington was a great man.
