I was content and happy in my new
home, but she had no home and no friend
to offer her..any. . So I went to my aunt,
Asking her permipsion to invite a school
mate-to spend the vacation -with us, and
she consented" without even asking the
name of that tiiend. .
. : Ada came, and my aunt's cheek paled
as I presented her, and when the ceremo
ny of introduction •.was over, she sunk
down-upon the sofa white and motionless.

nesS, she said—leave her, and show my
.frierid to :her r00m,.:;-Snd.serid her await-,

She did not leave her room that eve
ning; and; .whoi joining us at the break
fast, table next, morning, she was calm,
though her face was .pale and voice sad,
as she said to Ada, •
"I dislike ceremony„ and,: with youi
permisiion, shall not call you Miss Carl
ton, but Ada—a name I love." . ..
One evening we.were sitting by the o
pen window, in the bright.inoonlight,and
my aunt cotniqg "to Ada's aide, questioned
herot her fathei;llis naive, and the time
of his (tenth. She had little recollection
of him, !nit •: when asked about her moth
er, the young girl hid' much to tell, but of
her Mother's relatives 'she knew 'nothing,
if chore were any, and her father's family
never troubled themselvesabout her.
My aunt's face was so shaded by the
folds of the curtain that I could not, see it,
but her voice was_fulhof tears aa-slie urg
ed Ada to remain with us, and study with
I me.. But she would be graduated in a
nets months, and Ada could not forego
that.honor, but she promised to make her
~home with us when her school days . were
over, and so' he left us.
I After this my aunt's health seemed fail
ing; she had niede her will a month pre
vious, in my faVor, she s.sid, but wishing
to make a codicil, she requested me to'
write ,s note to her lawyer... He came.--,

I - Early one morning I was aWakeried by
the loud exclamations of-the servants,and
the rushing to and fro of hurrying feet. I
I ran to my aunt's room, and the. white face
•on which I gazed was cold and still: The ' ,

the Bank about-6 o'clock on the evening
of October 10th, attending to some busi

in comgany with two of the Bank clerks.
While there, the telegraph operator en

the business that occupied, him.. Shortly
afterwards two men came, running into
town on horseback, and stopOng, at the
bank, told him that the Rebels were with?
in six miles of the 'town, and advancing
upon it. . Believing, then, that the, news
was true, he thought: about pecking lip
and making his, exit with his family from

Gold is now selling in Wall Street at

of Congress flied the value, of, the pound!

When the'iraports . of any eofintry just

was the Government to obtain, possession
Of this property Y. .„;.- .
A portion of it the Government was . ,
[able to borroW, promising. to return an . - _

I were numerous „individuals in the commit- • .
"city *ho had property,which they could. ,
not use to advantage, and they' were wil- ,
ling to loan it• to• the Government: This
property existed mostly in .the form of
i merchandise, but it was-notfor the most
I part in the kind of inerchatulbie which the
1 Goveinntent wanted; so the exchange was .
effected like other exchanges of preperty,
through the meditim of money. The hold- '
ers of the property sold it- for money and, .
loaned the :honey the Government,
i'and thin, the Government exchanged the. '
!money tier the' merchandise which it need
ed. The only office which the money per- :
I formed was to effect the exchange of the ,
.commodities. Pieces of greeirpaper and lit,
tle"disks of gold and silver are of - no more
service in battle than pebblottoneS. . -War'
cannot be carried on by Means of money -
' unless the inotiey . can be exchanged. for
the needed commodities. ' . . . . '
A second mode in which the Govern- • .
ment could obtain a portion of the"-prop- -
erty of the citizeni_ was by takation—sim
; ply seizing it by means oftha physical tbree
which was under-the direction of the au- '
. .. .
l thorities. ' • t
1. The'third plan adopted was the issuing
qf notes of the Government, designed to -
I .
circulate as, money; it's being supposed
that any petsoes who owned gunpowder, ,
harses, or other property4n exchange for
these likes. What was the effect Of this - .
I measure? • . . .
1 As payment was refused •by banks,on
affetwo hundred millions of their' notes;
I and as ilieGovernment ili , l not redeem its
notes, the two circulated togather, swell
.' ing the amount” of our burresrey. This led
`to a general advance in prices. Everything which the Government now.buysit
mustpay 33 per cent—the present premi
nei on specie— more than it would if the
currency had not been disturbed. As the
l other_ loans to the .Goverement are also.
being paid in- this. depreirtted . currency,
• while they will be repaid in .coiss,tlie,
whole seeming 'debt is swollen to the
I same - extent. The debt: is. contracted

notes, making them a legal tender, is in
fitet-a forced loan, and of allmodes of ob
taining-the property of the citizens, it is
the most costly to the Government, and
one of the most disastrous to the people.
It operates in precisely the same' manner -
as a debasement of the coin--a measure '
repeatedly adopted by feeble tyrants and
which has always proved exceedingly inju
