Tni Tlnctual Ma. Mr Higgins was
I very punctual man in all his Transact-;
ions through lifo. lie amassed a largo
fortune by untiring industry and pur.ctu-i
ahty, and at th advanced ago ol nicely i
r wa resting quietly on his bed, and .
calmly waiting to bo culled away. He1
hid dtlilri'r mnili. almiul o,o.-
rangpnictit for his decease anU ouu...
His pulso grew fainter, and the light of
lifoetemed just flickering in its buckets,
Rn one of his sons observed
"Father, you will ; probably livobuta
day or two ; is it not noil for you to name
jour bearers ?"
"To be sure, my son," said the dying
mD; "it is well th'ou?ht of, and 1 will do
il DOW."
He gave tho names of six, the usual
Dumber, and tank back exhausted upon
bit pillow.
A gleam of thought parsed over his
withered features like a ray of light, nnd
h rallied once more. "My son read the
litl. Is the name of Mr. Wiggins there ?''
"It is, father."
"Then strike It off?" said he, emphati
cally, "for he was never punctuul was
never anywhere in season, and he might
hinder the procession a whole hour !"

"r.A:'n & third of a cent a piece, or three
apples for one cent. Thus woseo that

tow manny cents loos ho get for lixty

and the rule of three give the immedi

simple truth is that our nation had not
learned tat (io 1 did not create ouo raco
of his children to bo trampled upn by
another; nor that she is but a single na
tion instead of a dozen of nations. These
lessons rim now loarned. Tho war has

ever fornet them. Krom the. !, W of

what is tlio st.irit which prompts her to

spirit, w hich ignores tho rights of black

scarcely less so. Until the rebellion, tho

that a people, however great, should be

however small. It may be hoped that
tho negroes or the South would stand in
the wny of this apprehended guerrilla war

identifying it with justice nnd mercy,
might hasten to identify themselves with
it. Moreover, if our Government shall be
guilty of what scorns to be bad faith or
cruelty toward tho conquered rebels,
would there bp a disaffection at the North

The following is an extrac; of a letter

It is addressed in a relative near this city,
and is dated at I'm t Warren, Apiil ISth :

A correjondont, writing from Itich
mond, three days after its occupation by
tho Union forcos, tolls tho following
story :
Around the corner of a quare opposite
the Capitol there suddooly burst, a't noon
yesterday, a Irilliant cavalcade of North
ern ofiicots and ladies. Tho dust from
their horses' boors surged to the sidewalks,
and into the faces or a groupol'the daugh
ters of llichmond who wero returning
from church. The eyes of Ihe fomalo rid
ers, nglow with excitement and pleasure,
were first lifted toward tho statue of
Washington, immediately In front, then
fell with a curious look, minded of irony
and wonder, upon the ladies "or tho side
walks. In tho gazo that returned tho
look flashed that keenness of the varied
lightnings of a woman's eye a quivering
fcorn. One of the equestrienne could not
have observed it. Iteining her horse up
to tho curb, with nn expression of girlish
ardor. nnd delight, she bent asunny face,
crowned with golden hair, above the as
tonished fjroup of southerners, and, sing
lingout oirebaughty Rgure from tho rest,
said eagerly
"I beg pardon, but is it not truo that
I rccgniio a friend. Can it be that this
ia really ?"
'You are mistaken," the Southerner
responded, with the same fixed gate- "I
have no frionds whero you abide."
Lifting ber dress at the curb, the wo
man pnssed on with just the slightest bov
that was not in the slightest degree re
turned' Yot, let us fairly judg-s them, fjr thero
is (ometning appealing in their sorrow.
Humiliated as they are, who in their
boauty and their loftiness of spirit have
been cupbearers of hope to the rebellion,
what havo they to sustain them save their
pride. ? ffcro, where all is over and done
to our content, wo can afford not only to
pity, but to admire them.
