It is seldom that we come across anything
more truly poetic, expressive and grand, than
the following:
Hark! ye faithful, rouse from sleeping;
Strikes the ADVENT Bell again ;
With the Church, go watch, be keeping,.
Louder grows her old refrain,
Alleluia t Jesus, come to judge and reign.
Fast flows the tide of ages ;
Oftte fullness signs appear ;
Tokens of the prophet pages,
. Seem to tell the comma near.
Alleluia! Welcome Lord and Saviour dear
Waxeth cold the love of many ;
Waxeth hot the Devil's spite ;
Few the steadfast—hardly any
Daring for the True and Right.
Alleluia I Jesus come in thine own might.
List I the seventh trumphet pealing,
While the world keeps on its ways ;
Sudden shows the last revealing,
Sudden breaks the DAY of days.
Alleluia ! Come when thou wilt, we will praise.
Join their cry, who've gone before us
Longing for their final doom;
Their' and our Redemption's chorus,
Come, Lord Jesus, quickly come.
Alleluia! Even so, Lord Jesus come !

can a man wear at a ball that's fit to

"A very • nice style of dress," said
Gordon. "What would you have?"
"Why, colors, of course. Rich vel

As these gentlemen separated, the

in Thirtieth Street."
"Don't let my dress brush against
that dirty wheel," said a light, merry
voice from inside the carriage as Fred
Avery sprang upon the pavement and
extended his hand.
• "Oh dear, no. I'd rather be broken
on a wheel a dozen times than permit
your dress'to be soiled against one."
"Any orders, Miss?" asked the coach
man, touching his hat.
"Why, let me see," said Miss War
burton. "You will come in with me,
will you not, Mr. Avery ?"
"Too happy."
"Then the carriage may as well wait
for you. Stay hero, Jones, and take
Mr.. Avery wherever he wishes when
he leaves hero."
The man said nothing, but ileliben
ately getting llown off his seat, unfold,
ed a couple of blankets, with which he
carefully covered the heated horse's.
"In fur a long stay, ho is," was the
coachman's comment on the length of
time he must, in all probability, wait
for the conclusion of Mr. Avery's visit.
The coachman must have been a
keen observer. Two hours had passed
by the coachman's great silver watch,
on whose large round face the snow
flakes fell as he pulled it out at the
moment Fred Avery stepped on the
"Where obeli I take you, Sir, please?"
said the coachman, slipping on his In
dia rubber coat ever his gray livery-,
for the snow was now falling thick
and fast.
Um—drive down Broadway till I
call to you to stop."
Off they, went—down Broadway
with a whirl. The horses, chilled with
long standing, now dashed on madly
to put some warmth in their blood.
- Outside, the coachman swung his
arms and boat his bands to keep them
warm. Inside, Fred Avery, with his
feet on the warm fur rug, thelap:robe
over his knees, and the collar of his
over•coaC turned up snugly about his
ears, indulged in soliloquy
"She loves me—loves me dearly !
That's plainly to be seen. And 1 love
her—l do indeed. I shall propose to
lier at once—propose to her, and if she
will have me, marry her ; and then set
tle down and stop flirting."
As ho spoke ho looked out of the
window on the hurrying - crowd which
filled Broadway, and was hastening on
through the driving snow. how much
more fortunate, ho reflected, was he
than the generality of people ! With a
comfortable fortune, an agreeable pres
ence 9 all those successful flirtations of
his could testify to that—and now,
best of all, the love of the sweetest,
most elegant girl in their set! He
would show his gratitude for the many
blessings which had been showered
upon him by ceasing his frivolous life
of flirtation.
Could it be possible that that was

Fred suddenly remembers it was fine
enough when ho went in with Florence
Warburton, and snowing when ho
came out. Ho must have staid a good
while, ho thinks.
"The worst of it is," said Miss Row
son, "all the stages are full, and I can't
get home."
"Just step' in the carriage and I'll
take you home," said Mr. Avery:
She did not require a second' invita
tion. In a blinding snow-storm one is
not apt to be squeamish about getting
a shelter.
"What is your number , now—Madi
son Avenue ?" asked Fred.
She gave it, and ho repeated it to
the coachman, who, Mr. Avery fancied,
looked cross. "As if it were any of his
business," said Mr. Avery to himself,
with a shrug.
As the carriage rolled smoothly on
Edith began to thank him for his kind

"Ah !" and Edith Howson bit her lip
and became suddenly pettish.
Little by little it came out. how all
the girls say Florence is crazy for love
of Fred Avery; and all the gentlemen
say that Fred Avery is awfully "spoo
ny" on Florence.
"Spoony, indeed !" ejaculated Fred.
"A hateful word! sow, Edith, can
you believe a man like me capable of
being 'spoony' on any woman ?"
His arguments were very convin-
Mug. How handsome he was !
Oh dear, here's the house in Madison
Avenue. flow short the driVe has
been ! Will Mr. Avery come in with
her ?
Yes, Mr. Avery will. Mr. Avery
has much to sayjto her. Ile must beg
her to deny all those reports. Ile went
in with her, and bade the driver wait
for him again.
:The driver, thinking
.this would only
be a short stay, was careles's enough
not to trouble himself to cover the hor
ses. But when three quarters of an
hour had passed, and evening came,
and the snow kept falling faster and
faster, the driver made his horses and
himself as comfortable as possible un
der the uncomfortable circumstances.
At length Fred Avery came out. He
had had two or three glasses of wine,
and being of a temperament easily af
fected by the spirituous, the intellectual
was not so clear as it might have been.
"Drive to the club !" her said, huski
ly, and puffing a breath laden-with
wine-odor straight in the coachman's
face. "Drive there, and hurry—.then
you can go;"
At the club he was again “chaffed"
for his penchant for Florence. He de
nied it stoutly, with another bottle
open before him, and half of its con
tents down from his stomach to his

burton was the only woman Fred ever
Back at the house the coachman was
desirous of knowing whether Miss
Florence had any further orders; and,
while seeking that knowledge, he also
took occasion to impart acme whi3h
was not altogether pleasant knowledge
for Florence.
Sho learned of Mr. Avery's having
found a lady in the street whom tie
took home, and'tvith whom he staid a
long, long time. The number and the
street of this house being given her,
sho recognized the residence of Edith
Rowson, who was knoWn to be as des.
porate a flirt feminine as Fred Avery's
reputation made him a flirt masculine.
Tho.nezt clay was the day of her
hall. Fred did not come to see her.
Butit was just as well. She was so
busy; and, besides, he would be sure
to come early to the ball in the even
He came very late. Tom Otis and
his friend Gordon had been there dan•

he came, and Moreno() met him in the
"You aro late," she said, coldly.
"Yes; a fellow from the West whom
was obliged to dine, and couldn't get
rid of afterward. Ah Florence," ho
whispered in her ear, and meant it too,
deeply, "how dearly I love you !"
Her frame quivered with delight,
for she loved him with every fibre of
her being.
Fred entered the ball-room, and the
first person ho saw was Edith Rowson.

her head and her heart throbbing with,
neatest pain, she whispered -to her
mother that she was so ill she must go
up stairs, but there need bo no cessa

Up stairs her maid met her• and
caught her in her arms just as she was
on the point of falling.
"Why, Miss," sho said, "how pale
you look ! Sha'nt some one go for the
doctor 7"
No; no doctor. Miss Warburton
says no doctor can help her.
In the morning Fred Avery review
ed his conduct with supromest disgust.
"Was I insane to act as I did? Is
there a fatality which drives me from
the woman I love to a woman who is
nothing to me—whom I despise--
loathe—as I do myself?"
Ho shuddered with disgust.
"But I will see her," he said ; "tell
her I love her—love her dearly—in
spite of all my folly. She loves me,
I know. She will not refuse to see
Ile went at once to the house. Miss
Warburton was too ill to see any one.
Days passed; she was still ill.
"I will write to her," he said at last.
He wrote this note, and sent it :
"On MY D.tarANo,—Lan you forgive
my folly—wickedness? 'Will you mar

The answer came very promptly. It
was but one word:
No more flitting now for Fred Avery.

One day they wore at breakfast,and

Broadway in a state of intoxication,
was knocked down by a heavy truck
and killed.

proscriptive measures. Thus; Mr:Sum
ner advises the conventions yet to be
held to widen the disfranchising claus
es of the Congressional plan, and to
impose disabilities which would have
the effect of excluding the great body
of Southern intelligence from partici
pation in the Government: Mr. But
ler favors, substantially, the same
course.. Mr, Stevens, as usual, is not
behind either. He would allow a bare
majority of those who vote to. determine
the matters submitted to thorn—in-
Stood of a majority of the registered

poses to increase the, Congressional

be voted for on a general ticket or as
Congressmen at large ; and= lie con
templates the organization of provis
ional governments, to be -established
by the conventions, and to take the
place of the district commanders.
This last proposition is intended to se
cure the existence of "loyal govern•
intuits" to rule the States in which the•
measures of the Conventions may be
voted down or otherwise defeated,and
is a foretaste of what gentlemen like
Mr: Hunter may expect as the alterna
tive of "nea t' r° rule" under the law as
it stands. Mr. Stevens clings, more
over, to his old idea of "mild confisca
tion ." and Mr. Butler suggests that
for die better securing the supremacy
of the "loyal element" the disfranchis
ed class shall be debarred participa
flan in the management of banks, rail
roads, or other chartered commercial
enterprises. To crown the whole, Mr.
Sumner insists that the problem of na
tionality which he has striven pro.
foundly to elucidate, shall be solved
by the enactment de political rights
bill, milking political 00-extensive with

It is not easy to speak with patience
of projects so obviously' at variance
with the policy of the itepublican par
ty, so injurious to the country, or so
calculated to add to the dangers and
difficulties. of 'the. South. And yet
nothing is gained by refusing to look
at plans and propotitions which indi
cate the purposes, and throw some
light upon the probable tactics, of the
faction whose confidences are shared
by Alessrs. Sumner Stevens, and But.
ler in common with the special contri
butor of the Anti-Slavery Standard.
The folly and enormity of what these
persons propose is not a reason for
passing it over unnoticed. The spirit
it reveals cannot be safely disregarded,
since its influence will be felt, imme
diately, throughout the South, and
again in Congress when the question
shall come up for . final adjustment.
The first effect will perhaps be the
worst. There can be no doubt that
the absence of faith in the finality of
the Constitutional Amendment, con
tributed not a little to the failure of
that measure in the Southern Legisla
tures. They declined to acquiesce in
unpalatable conditions, which, after
all, might not be the ultimatum of the
National Government. The distrust
was, in our judgment, unfounded, and
the refusal unwise, but we must nev
ertheless admit the plausibility of the
reasoning in which both originated. A
similar argument against the Recon
struction law is now furnished by the
extremists; though the effect may not
be so distinctly traceable—the tendon-
Cy is unquestionably the same. It will
put a powerful weapon in the bands
of those who dwell upon the bad faith
of Congress as a motive to opposition.
On the more violent members of the
Conventions the influence will be still
more mischievous. From the Caroli
nas and from Virginia they have sent
to Washington to learn the views of
politicians who claim to be considered
leaders. The trio whose extravagan
ces now come before us have been vie
ited for this purpose, and their opin-,,
ions will be reported to the Conven
tions with all the weight of gospel.
