In the hidden depths of the ocean wave
Lie pearls of value rare.
Fashioned by the Creator's hand
Inpriceleas beauty fair ;
In the hidden depths if mighty earth
Are riches untold vas'
We know not all the costly wealth
That 'ncath our feet is cast.
In the hidden depths of every soul
Lies some unspoken word.
Some holy thought or memory
By all save One unheard ;
And He alone knows all the good
That's hidden everywhere .
He alone can sound the depths
Of earth, and sky, and sea. -
In the hidden depths of many hearts
Sad sorrow siis enshrined
Mingled with woe and bitterness
Unknown to human kind ;
But there is One who ever sees
Who bears the failitajt call,
And in our darkest hour
SLines bright His love through all.

I came very near it last summer, and
I'll tell you confidentially, of course
how it happened.
I wad up tbe Iludeqn, at Creawick
Manor, veiling my second cousin, Joe
Cifswick, wLo liad just come borne from
India, with a pocket full of money, and
no particular idea boar to speud it So
be bought tbe old manor bouse, put up
about a quarter of an acre of conserva
tories, leveled off a croquet lawn, and
filled tbe place wilb company.
Joe is an agreeable fellow, and I rath
er liked tbe idea of spending tbe summer
in tbe country, with no bills to pay, so
I didn't besitate to accept bis invitation
Mrs. Joe was exceedingly agreeable
in her -way. too a dark, bright little
creature, with cheeks like peaches and
great bewildering eyes aud Bbe bad a
sister as like ber as two peas.
"Deueed pretty girl, that Miss Middle

don't mind telling yon that you've made
rather au impression on her."
"No!" said I, pulling my moustache.
"Fact," eaid Joe. puffing away at his
I'arlaga, wiib a twinkle iu bis eyes.
"Why don't you go in for Jenny Mid
dleton, old fellow 1 There's money
I eeliled the moustache to my satis
faction, and turned the seal ring around
on my little finger once or twice.
"Well, you see the fact is, I'm not
a marrying man,'' I finally answered.
'-But if the girl uill make such a dead
set at me '' j
''It's no fault of yours! Yesjlcora
prehetid exactlyi" said Joe, coughing a
little. "lut we've all got to come to it,
sooner or later, Dionysius its like death
or tbe rheumatism."
"That is true, said I, reflectively ;
and there is a good deal of style about
Miss Jenny. Well, I'll take thia matter
"I would, said my cousin Joe, dryly.
Creswick Manor, as ill luck would
bave it, was crowded with company that
week, and among the guests was a good
looking young miscreant, Evan Hale by
name, who appeared to be on aggrava
ting'" good terms wilb Jenny Middle
'The conceited puppy !" I said to
myself. "But I'll put a spoke iu bis
wheel, or my name isn't Diouysius I'ew
But iust as I was considering where to
insert the aforesaid spoke, some friendly
wind blew op a telegram from Hale s
Wall street ollice "Wanted, immediate
ly" and just as I was rejoicing thereat,
upon the very next day some unfriendly
wind wafted up a letter for Jenny !"
"It's irom Evan, I declare 1" said Mrs
Joe, dancing up to ber sister with tbe
epistle. "Do tell us what he says, Jen
"From Mr. llale !" chirped Genevieve
Gossamer, a blue-eyed fairy in muslin
aud blue satin ribbons. "Why I hadn't
any idea it bad come to a correspondence.
"Do behave, all of you !" said Jenny,
and away she ran to read her letter in
peace, with checks as pink as tbe ribbon-bow
at ber throat.
Now I leave it to you if matters didn't
look rather bad 1
I smoked my cigar grimly in the ar
bor, and tried to read "Stratbmore," but
it was all to no avail. Evan Hale stalk
ed through all the pages, and Miss Mid
die ton's dewy brown eyes sparkled in
every wreath of smoke, like haunting
"I'l go to my room and have a glass
of iced claret," mused I ; "and then I'll
flirt with some of the other girls, and
make Jenny jealous ! That will bring
My apartment was in the east wing of
tbe mansion house, nc to reach it I had
to go directly past that assigned to Miss
Middleton ; and as ill luck would have
it, the door waa wide open, and there, on
the dimity -draped dressing-table, lay tne
very letter that hud mad such a sensa
tion among the girls that morning.
"I'll have a peep at it," soliloquized
I. "I'd like o see for myself what the
young villain has had the impudence to
write! All's fair iu love or war, they
Thus meditating, I tiptoed into the
room a dainty little bower of white
muslin, pink ribbon, Luhin's perfumes
aud crimping pins aud look up ibe let
But before I could unfold it. the sound
of voices and footsteps, in the hall be
yond, struck a thrill of dismay to my
"By Jove!'' I cried, mentally, "the
sooner I get out of this the better."
And dropping the letter, I made a mad
plunge for the door.
The door ! but oh, unlucky fates ! It
was the wiong one; and, instead of es
caping into the hall, I darted into a wil
derness a grove, so to spealt of mus

Before I ' could recover myself, the
voices and footsteps -were close upon me

effectually cut oiF. I retired upon a tel
escopic cage of hooped skirts, which
clung around me with almost human ma
liciousness, aud drew the door as close as
"Nothing on earth shall induce me to
let any one iu !" I muttered between my
teeth, as a parasol and ten band-boxes
tumbled about my ears.
Here was a pretty position, though, for
Dionysius Pewter, esq., cooped up like a
rat in a trap, among dresses and jockey
bats, bis feet entangled iu hooped skirts,
aud a sun umbrella hooked into his col

But j'tst here Jenny Middleton mer

"Yes, really and truly."
"But what will iMr. l'ewter say J"
"Mr. Pewter, indeed !" Hashed out
Jenny, so electric illy that I almost

"A red-whiskered, couceited puppy, who
fancies tbe whole leminiue woihi is in

"Though," said Nelly, demurely, "it

An!? the little coquette laughed out at
"Perhaps you could manage it your
self,' said Jenny, wickedly
"1 dare say I could," said Nelly.- One
might do anything with such a fool as
How my cheeks burned.
"Just hand me that curling stick, dear,"
said Jenny, speaking with a cluster of
hairpins in her mouth "And' now get

My heart gave a great jump, and then
stood still as Nelly flitted across the
room and laid ber baud on the knob of

I held stoutly on mine ; but as evil fate
would decree the slippery handle sudden

flew open, disclosing me to the girls' ter

Before I could open my lips to speak,
it was banged to again, and tbe key
turned, while Nelly and Jenny flew into
the hall, screaming in wild chorus :
"A man ! a man ! a thief 1 a burglar !
a robber 1 a murderer !"
In au instant tbe room was thronged
with people, all asking questions at once,
iu a sort of Babel of voices.
"Where is he ?" bawled my cousin
Joe I'll settle him I"
As he spoke he threw opeu the door,
making a lunge with a poker that came
witbin a qnarter of an iuch of my head.
"Hold on, Joe !'" I gasped, iu desper
ation. "It's ouly I !"
"Only you," roafed Joe; "and what
on earth are yon doing here 1"
"Hush sh sh 1" I whispered "Don't,
for pity's sake, t-peak so loud ! I'll ex
plaiu it all ; only let me out ! I shall
smother in another minute, if yoa don't '
And like a convicted criminal, I was
led out, the hooped skirts trailing after
me, like a vindicative serpent, in full
view of tbe girls, whose terror bad
changed to hysterical laughter, half-sup
pressed giggles. Alas, for tbe dignity of
I told my Cousin Joe as plausible a
story as I could invent abont my having
mistaken the room, but 1 don't think he
believed me ; and those mischievous girls
found the whole thing out before dusk.

ing,' ani fcaarie" additional satisfaction
of seeing Evan Hale's face at the win

I haven't received wedding-cards yet,
but 1 dare say I shall.
So, you see, if all this hadu't happen

Alter a lingering illness, durintr lue
last week of which her death has been
almost hourly expected, Mrs. Horace
Greely, at four o clock yesterday mor
ning, breathed her last. She died without
a strugle, passing away so quietly that
the sorrowing watchers at her bfedside
were hardly aware of the final moment.
The sad occurance took place at the
residence of Mr. Johnson, New York,
where she had been remove 1 at ber
own request from tbe family "mansion at
("bappaqua, in tbe first week of the
preseut month, that she might ksre tbe
companionship of ber mat imtima'e and
valued fiieuds. Mr. (Jietly aud his
daughter Ida bave been constant watch
ers at the bedside of the invalid, and Mr.
Greely some time since relinquished his
political work aud correspondence en
tirely, that bis attcutioti might be given
solely to his wife. At the moment of
dissolution, however, he was not present,
having retired to bis room to obtain the
repose required by his unceasing vigils,
aud M.ss Ida Greely and Mrs. Stewart
were the only persons in the room.
Mrs. Greely, w hose ma-ten name was
Mary Young Cheney, was bom iu Con
neclicut, where ber family still reside.
In 1S35 she went to Warrenton, N. C-,
to take charge of a school, and was mar
ried to Mr. Greely iu that town in 183G.
Mr. Greely, then in bis twenty sixth
year, was at that time conducting the
Neic Yoik-r, puplished in New York
city. This was nearly five years before
the establishment of the Tribune. Mrs.
Greely s influence over her husband was
great, and she is said to bave bad no
small share in shaping some of the most
importantjets of bis public life. Five
children have been born to them, but
only two, both daughters, are now living,'
two sons and ouo daughter having died in
.Mrs, Greely has been an invalid from
pulmunary disease and tbeuinatic affec
tion for a number of years. She recent
ly went to Europe for the benefit of ber
health, and returned but a few weeks
since apparently much improved from a
residence on the Isle of Wight The
hope of her recovery was not realized
however. She soon commenced to fail
after her return, and a dropsical condi

ease rapidly proceeded to a fatal termi

A Rich Story.
A Parkcrsburg paper says that sev
eral members of tbe Legislature took
the cars at Grafton, late on the evening
of the 16th nit , for Wheeling, aud
among tbe number was a Mr. U.. of
somewhat large proportions, physically,
and a Mr. 1)., of proportional uudersize.
These two tbe stalwart Mr. G. and
the smooth faced little Mr. D took a
berth together, it seems, in a sleeping car.
The little man laid behind and tbe good
natured, waggish Mr. G. before.
Mr. 1). was soon sleeping and snoring
furiously. Mr. G., more restless under
his legislative burdens, soon arose, and
was sitting by the stove, when an elder
ly lady came aboard and desired a berth.
' All right, madam," said G , "I took
a berth with tny son, and you can occu
py my place in that berth where my lit
tle boy is sleeping."
Taking Mr G. at bis word, tbe lady
disrobed, and laid down with the boy.
After a quiet repose of some time the
boy, Mr D , became restless from some
cause, and began to kick around, to the
annoyance of the old lady So, in a
maternal manner, she patted him on tbe
back, and said :
"Lie still, sonny; pa said I might
sleep along with you."
"Thunder and lightning !" cried the
Legislator, "who are you T I am no boy ;
I'm a member of tbe West Virginia
It ia said that tbe lady swooned, and
could uot be brought to till D. promised
that G. should be impeached.
D. swears that the thing shall not rest
What action the Legislature will take
for the purpose of protecting its own
dignity remains to be seen.
There is only one good substitute for
the endearments of a sister, and that is
the endearments of some other fellow's

sion of the following particulars of a
Case of wife desertion of so heartless a
nature that tho Srate who perpetrated it
ought to be treated to a coat of tar and
feathers before bein bauded over to the
lenient law to deal with r Somewhere
about the 15th of September, a man na
med Richard Lane, claiming to live in
Iowa City, but working in Muscatine,
contrived to induce a respectable widow
lady of that place, Mrs Maria Hatha'-.,
way, to marry him After the wedding
Lane persuaded bis wife to leave her
child with some fiieuds in in Muscatine
aud accompany him on a journey in a
wagon into Illinois. They reached this
city on tho evening of the ISth, and!
camped out that night near the fa?r
grouuds In the morning Lane asked
his wife if she had any change, and the
confiding woman handed him her pocket
book, containing SI 40, all the money she
possessed. They then started np town
to procure something to eat. Arriving'
at Walter Kennedy's, be refreshed him
self at the bar and watered his horses.
They then drove to Mis. Beck's grocery,
a short distance nearer town, and, after
having some crackers and cheese wrap
ped up, Lane pretended that he had been
robbed of bis pocket book, and conveyed
the distressing information to bis wife in
the wagou. They drove back to Ken
nedy's, where, a'ter a little inquiry
about the missing money. Lane asked
Kennedy to direct him to a place where
bis wife could be boarded for her work
while he went to Iowa City to get some
money ot bis own, which be said he had
there. They were' directed to the resi
dence of Mrs. Jones, where Lane made
