It was a grand day, in the old chivalric time,
the wine aim ling around the board in a noble

BEETHOVEN'S MOONLIGHT SONATA.
It happened at Bann *,* One
moonlight winter's evening I 'called
on Beethoven for I wanted him to
take a walk,, and - afterwards` sup
with me. In passing through some
dark, narrow street he paused sud
denly. "hush I" he said, "what
sound is that ?—it is from my sym
phony in F I" be said eagerly. "Hark,
how well it is played I" It was a
little, mean dwelling and, we paused
outside „and listened. '`.het player
went on, but in the midst of the fi
nale there was a sudden brea,k, then
the voice of sobbing. "I cannot play
any more—it is so beautiful, itis ut
terly beyond my power2to do it jus
tice !—O, what would not _I give to
go to the concert at Cologne !" "Ah,
my sister," said her companion,_ "why
create regrets where there-is no rem
edy ? We can scarcely pay oar. rent."
"You are- right—and yet I wish for
once in my life to bear some really
Aood music; But it is of• no use !"
Beethovan looked at Me. "Let us
go' in," ho said.- "Go in !" I ex
claimed. "What can we go in-for-?"
—"I will play for her," he said in an
excited tone. "Here is feeling--
genias—understanding.. I will play
to her, and she will appreciate it !"
And before,l. could prevent him, his
hand was upon _the door. A pale
young man was sitting the table,
*A •• ^ ads. rind lel cd
sorrowfully upon an o as tuned
harpsichord, sat a young girl, with a
profusion of light hair falling over
her bent face. Both were cleanly
hut poorly dressed, and both started
and turned toward us as we entered.
"Pardon me," - said Beethoven, "but
1 heard music and was tempted to
enter. I am a Musician." The girl
blushed, and-the young man- looked
grave—somewhat annoyed: "I—l
also overheard something of what
-you said," continued my friend.
"You wish to hear—that is, you
would like7----that-is—sh,all I play for
you ?" There was_uomething so_odd
in the whole affair; uid something so
eccentric and pleasant in the man
ner of the speaker,.that the: ice seem
ed broken in a moment, and all smil
, ed involuntarily.. "Thank you" said
the shoemaker.; !tut our harpsichord
is wretched, and We have no music."
“N o fringe," echned'mytriend: "How

and Colored up, for the' girl. looked
round full at him, and he saw that
she was blind. entreat .your

where do you hear the music, since

taliear a lady practice near us When
we lived atßruhl two years. During
the summer evening's her windows
were generally:open, and I walked
to and fro outside to listen to her."
"And have ypulievur heard any .mu,
sic ?" "None esdopting ,street Mu.
- sic." She seemed shy, so Beethoven
said, no more, but seated himself qui
etly before the Piano ainl7 , begaii: to
play, He had no sooner struck -the
first chord than-I. knew what would
follow—how grand he would be that
night! and I was -not, mistaken.—
'Never, during all the years - I knew
hit*, did I hear MITI play he he played
tic: , that blind girl and her brother.—
He was inspired; and from the in
stant that his fingers began to wan
der along the keys, the very tonetroU
the instrument began to grow sweet
er and more equal.
The brother and sister were silent
with wonder and rapture. The for
mer laid aside his work ; the latter,
her head bent slightly forward,
and her hands pressed tightly over
her breast, crouched down near the
end of the harpsichord as if fearful
lest even the heating of her heart
slid break the flow of 'those rnitg
ieatsweet sound's. It was as if we
were' all bepnd in a strange dream
and only - feared to wake. Suddenly
the flame ,nf the sitigle candle wa
vered, surik, flickered, and went out.
Beetliovehpabiled, and I threw open
the shutters, - admitting_ a flood, of
Brilliant • moonlight. The roomewas
tilmoet as light as bctore, and the il
lamination fell strongest on the piano
and player. - But the : - chain of-:hie
ideas seemed to have teen brokentry
_accident. His head dropped
upon his breast—his hands rested on

meditation. `lt was thas for some

ho said, in a low tone, "who and what

he only could smile benevolently, in
dulgently, kindly. "Listen l" ho
said, and he played the opening bars
of the symphony in F. A cry of de
light and recognition burst from them
both, and exclaithing, "Then you are
Beethoven I", they covered his hands
with tears and kisses. He rose to
go, but we beld him back with en
treaties.. "Play us once

self to be led back to the instrument.
The moon shone'brightly in throiigh
the window, and lit up his -glorious
rugged head and--massive'figure.
wilt improvise a sonata to the Moon
light I" said he, looking up thought
fully to the sky and stars—then his
hand dropped on the keys, and began
playing a sad, and infinitely' lovely
movement, which crept gently over
the instrument like the,ealia flow of
moonlight over the dark - earth. This
was followed by a wild, elfin passage
in-triple time—a sort of grotesque
interlude like'a dance of sprites upon
the sward. Then came a. swift -agi-
We finale—a 'breathless, hurrying,
trembling movement; descriptive of
flight, and uncertainty,.' and vague,
impulsive terror, which carried us
its rustling wings, and
left us all emotion and wonder.—
"Farewell to you," said Beethoven,
pushing back his chair, and turning
toward the door; "farewell to you."
"You, will come again ?" asked they
in one' breath. He paused, -and look
ed compassionately, almost tenderly,
at the face'ot the blind girl. "Yes;
yes," he said hurriedly, gl will come
again, and give the fraulein some
lessons. Farewell; I will come soon
again !" They followed us in ,silence
more eloquent than words, and stood
at their door till we were out of sight'
and hearing. "Let us make h.aste
back," said Beethoven, "that I may
write out that sonata while I can
yet remember it I" We did so, and
he sat over it till long past day dawn.
And this was the origin of that Moon
light Sonata with which we are. all
so fondly acquainted.

AUGUST 16, 1865.
POCAHONTAS AND JOHN-SMITH.
It.has already been a grief to ro
mantic readers of the early history
of "Virginia, that two persons why
seemed so well suited to each other
its the brave discoverer and noble
daughter of Powhatan, should not
have becoine man and wife. The
precise difficulty in the case has not
beep made plain by any historian.—
An exchange intimates that Mr. Rolfe,
Lo.whoti she was married, and his
Er en $ were . gmity of a base dew
in making her
_believe that Cap .- -
tail). Smith was dead. It says :
.There is no doubt what the. muse
of history ought to do here. Were
sha a dame of- ,proper sensibilities,
she would have Mr. Sohn Smith mar
ried•to Miss P: Powhatan as soon as
a parson could be got from James
town. Were it a romance that would
balhe result. As it is, we find Smith
.and living-unmarried until his death;
and Pocohontas married to the Eng
lishman, John -Rolfe for, reasons of
State, we fear a fink!of friendship be
tween, the reds and white being
thought desirable. She was Of course
Christianized and baptized, as any
one m''ay see by Chapman's picture
in the rotunda at Washington, unless
Zouave criticism has demolished it.--
Immediately she went with her hus
band to - England.
At Brentford, where she was stay
' ing, Captain John Smith went to see
her. Their meeting was significant
and affecting. After a modest salt
tation she turned away, and hid, her
face, as if displeased.. She remained
thus motionless for two or three hours.
Who can kn%w the struggle that
passed through the heart of the In
dian bride at this moment—emotions
doubly unutterable to this untaught
stranger ? It seems that she had
been deceived by Rolfe and his friends
into thinking that Rolfe was dead,
under the conviction that she could
not be induced to marry him if she
thought Smith was alive. After her
long, sad silence, before mentioned,
she came forward to Smith and toun
ingly reminded him, there in the
presence of her husband and a large
.company, .of the kindness she had
shown him in her own country, say
ing, "you did promise Powhatan
what was yours should be his, and
he like to you. You called him fath
er, being in his land a stranger, and
for the same reason so must I call
After a pause, during which . she
seemed to be under the influence of
strontemotion, she said, "I will call
v6ll be triiv
your countrywoman." Then she ad
ded, slowly and with. emphasis.
"They did tell me always you were
dead, and I know no other till I came
to Plymouth; yet Powhatan did
command T.Tttainattomakin to seek
you and know the truth, because
your countrymen will lie much."
It was not long after this inter.
view that Pocahontas died. She nev
er returned to Virginia. Her death
occurred in 1617. The issue of her
marriage was one child, Thomas
Rolfe • so it is through him that the
first, families of Virginia are so inva
riably descended from the. Indian
princess. Captain Smith lived until
1631, and, as we have said, never
married: He was a noble and a true
man, and Pocahontas was every way
worthy to be his wife . ; and one feels
very ill-natured at. Rolfe and company
for the cruel deception which we
mist believe, was all that kept them
asunder and gave the story of the
lovely maiden its almost tragic close.

THE TROUBLES ,OF NEXT CONGRESS.
The next point of great interest in
the politics of this 'country is the
meeting of the next Congress. The
members for the northern States are
all chosen.; and it is probable that the
southern States Will have full delega
tions, consisting of about seventy
members;- exclusive of Delaware,
Maryland, Kentucky and Missouri.
It is.too early now to speculate in
regard to the character of that body,
for we do not know what issues may
be prominent in December, nor what
class f of men may rnpresent th e
South. If we assume that Johnson's
mode of re-eonstruetion is an issue,
against the radicals, we think it like
ly the conservatives may have a ma
jority. If such shall seem likely to
be the „ease, an attempt will be made
by the Clerk to rule, out a portion of
thonouthern membnrs, and thus pre
-ixent.tkeir pelt' Ipationin the eraani,
zation of the House. If the radicals
can secure - this, they will probably
Vote all the southern members out,
and keep themnut, if they can, until
the negroes are allowed to vote.
But there isreason to hope for some
thing better : That the South, in
cluding Kentucky, will send no abo
litionists to Congress, but goOd Con
stitutional lJnion men, such as north
ern Democrats can heartily co-oper
ate with. Together, they may con
stitute a majority ; and • then, if the
abolitionists resort to revolutionary
means they will find their hands full,
for the President must sustain the
members chosen under • his own theo
ry of re-construction. •
Without investigation—which in
deed, would be useless in the present
state of the case—we are inclined to
think that the radicals will have a ma
jority— that they will organize in
their own way, aad make a distinct
issue, against the admission of south
ern men not chosen by negro votes.
We cannot conceive it possible that.
the South will ever assent to negro
suffrage, and hence we do not see wby
this agitation is not likely to be pro
longed for many years. While this
is probable, it is possible that good
men, chosen in good faith by the
South, will be admitted, and, that the
machinery of government will move
harmoniously again. If Johnson
stands firm, we do not believe the
public opinion of the North will sanc
tion the exclusion of southern men
from Congress for reasons which op
erate with equal force against some
EXPENSES- AT . THE" ViHa._JM,
pow the lato President Lincoln was
able to save $50,000 from hie salary.
It insists that the trouble with a
President ofreasonably frugal habits
is not how to save his salary, but how
to spend it. lo the first place he has
no rent to pay. Congress furnishes.
the White House from garret to cel
lar,,and provides all that is needed
in kitchen and pantry, as well as in
parlor. He has no wages - to pay.—
Congress pays his servants, from pri
vate secretary to bootblack and scul.
It also proyides him . . with fuel ; nd
lights, and paye the mpensei of his
stables. It providis.him with a'gar
den and a corps of- gardeners, 'who
ought too see that he _pays nothing
for vegetables, or fruit or flowers.—
In short, of.the, ordinary expenses,of,
housekeeping the oily bills the Presi
dent is called upon to pay are the
butcher's and `the wino merchant's.
Even the latter has not_ fallen upon
the recent occupants of„ the .White
House, whose cellars have usually
been ept well stocked by presents of
wines and liquors.,
'When all thitse items are .deducted,
and when it is considered> that it is
tiot esiquette in Washington, to. call
upon the President for contributions
to ordinary charities, it can easily be
understood how ” Mr. Lincoln could
lay up one-half, 'preven more, of his
salary. And this, economy be
more comprehensible if the fact.be,
as. universally asserted and credited
in Washington, that the expenses of
the parties and state dinners occa
sionally-given by the President were,

AN INTELLIGENT CONTRABAND...-.
Everybody has heard of the boy, who,
on being asked if he had greassd the

hung on, and he couldn'tget at them;
but nobody, we suppose, ever believ
ed the story. An instance of the
kind, however, happened in this bor
ough, this week. Mr. Geo. Bright,
in Market street, has in his employ
an intelligent contraband, fresh from
Ole Virginny. A few days ago, Mr.
Bright ordered him to "grease the
carriage," and soon after discovered
that the darkey had daubed the top
of the carriage all over with tanner's
oil, which was as odoriferous as the
nigger himself.--Pottsvii/e Standard.
