The Unguarded Tongue.
"SYLVANCS COBB, JR
Among the sources of social and
domestic disquietilov. one of the:chief
the habit of husbands and wives
correeting each other in public. I
mean that habit of correction which
lets no slip of the tongue pass with
out a reminder, niking the corrected,
paLty feel cheap, and casting a sha
dow upon the listeners.
At a party, one evening, Charles
Lee was telling to knot , of his
friends about the wonderful yield of
his, strawberry heel - . lie prided him
self 01 1 that bit of horticultural suc
‘. We shall gather a Inttylred quarts
of berries from that In4l this season,''
he said, with a flourish.
Oh, no. Charks," interrupted his
.wife, %who had just eoine up. "If we
fret fifty quarts we t,hall do well:"
Why. ,you have piekedi as much
as fifteen quarts alremly."
" NOW, Laura, you forget how
many are eaten direct from the vines.
And again, when I say a hundred
(piths. I mean
. as we have t. , ) buy
them at the ~:tOres.-w-ith the hulls on."
Oh, Charles, that ttia w berry bed
is your riohby.".
And the wife laughed. But, the
husband did n:)t hut! , h. lle was cut
to the quick, and turned away with
out speakingfurt! k er. l
Now any experknced gardner over
looking ('harks Lee's strawberry bed
threugh the -month of July, would
have risked a goodly wages tliatits
yield for the season would overrun a
hundred (pmts. - And ('harks had
meant to tell only the truth.
" Laurarhe said, after they reaeh
ed their home, —you do- not know
that you made me very unhappy this
'• Unhappy ?"
'• Yes unhappy, because indig-
• 0. yon meati what I said about

" Stop, Laura. 1 shall not discuss
that. We cannot measure the berric;
to-night. I only wish to remind you
that, your habit of correcting we in
public is a most ilisagree.able one to
all who hear it. it makes me feel so
unpleasantly, and it perplexes others.
And, my (lea: wif., the habit is grow
ing tipon you."
"t• r barb s, one would thin,
to hear you, 'that I had been doing
onwthin! , awful. What harm can
there be, l should like to know."
" . There is a g'reat deal of harm,
Eaina. The habit is an evil one, and
can lead only to evil."

" Ave. 'Laura. Of all the evils to

-. Then. Laura, a greater evil may
be,y6tits: speak now from my heart.
r you do not try to restrain—"
Before he could finish the sentence
his wire had swept from the room.
Two weeks later Charles Lee and
his wife sat one evening in their cozy
draw ing-rooM, when Mr. Fuller came
in. He was Laura's father, a genial,
large-hearted man, dearly 1(mell by
his children. Ile owned large wool
eti mill. and maitufacturedD a great
deal of cloth, most of which: was
sent ,to consignees in the - West. He
kissed his daughtet, and took into
his arms and kissed the two little
children, and then sat down. Gradu
ally the smile faded from his face.
and an, expression of 4eo concern
took its place.
" Charles," said lie, " I have re•
ceived a letter from Claxton Sr. Sim
onds. I have got to extend their pa
per. . I should have had a remittance
from them of ten thousand dollars a
,week 'ago.; and another like remit
=tance will;be dui next vouth. They
cannot make...RA.ller of them. It is
'bad:, isn't it?"
• " Very bad," said Charles.
"Why don't you push them, as
you tail it?" demanded Laura. "If
they owed me, I think I would know
why I didn't get my money."
" All," said • the old gentleman,
smilin, "pushing them might be
the worst thing I could do. They
are not 'men to be: driven."
" I'ddrice Mein if they. owed me,
and didn't pay. How can yott'inn
your mill if you don't get tiaY fur
your cloth ?"
" That's a sober question: and
there's where the pinch conies."
• ." Well. I'd pinch C:axt.on.lc.. Biru
onds, I 'think." a '
" Let -me look' - at the letter," said
Mr.. Fuller handed, it to him, and
while he was reading it Laura went,
away witic i the children to put them
"It doeVt seem to be so bad, af
ter all," said Charles, laying the let

Just as it happens now, so it was
sixteen years ago, that the vote ot
New York seemed to the politicians
to be the decision of the contest. It
will be remembered that an unprece
dented event in the history of the
opposition occurred, that year, in the
New York canvass. There were three
candidates Breckiuridge, Douglas
a_44l . Bell—opposed to Lincoln, and,
though their respective 'adherents
hated each other With ferocity unpre
cedented, they all bated Mr. Lincoln
yet. lt i was in that State that the
