Uon. Hardun's Resignation.
Tho General had been many years 1n

ones who wore waiting ci'hcr for his death
or resignation, in order to odvancu, that
neither of .thoso dchtrablo events would

although ho was a sad Uoek in tho way
of .their official progress.

upon a riic by which the old General
would bo driven into resignation. Having

jungles was then known it a matter of

played and his health was drank in thrco
brimming glasses, ono after another. As

arose'tc respond.
" Friends," said he holding to tho ta

and his voico was husky from tho same
cause " Friends, kindness overpowers mo.

was tho manager of a troupo of concert
singers, called by my own name. Wc
traveled over tho Union, stopping oftencst
in country town3 aud small cities. At ono
of these, I was detained by tho illness o,f
my chief fomalo singer. Sho left us, after
a few days ; and while I was at my wit's
end, not knowing where to look for another,
I received a nolo, stating that a lady, with
a vcry powerful and highly cultivated
voice, had ho ird of my dilemma, and wish
ed to offer herself for tho vacant placo.
Of course, I called on her at onco,
"J was astonished when sho entered the

You may well believe I lost no time in

And then, fjr the first time, I saw a faint,

" Her first appearanco was an immense
success. She gave no other namo than
Constance, oven to mc, and tho mystery
that surrounded her, made everyone curious
t'i see her. The littlo, graceful figure stood
alono upon the stage, at tho end cf the
concert, with bouquets showering around
her, but though sho courtcsied and smiled,
h-r dirk, blue eyes wandered impatiently
around, as if seeking for ono who wis not
there, 1 noticed this in her every evening
and when the concert was over, she would
go into hor dressing routn, and sob and
cry like aiitrlo child.
" Of course, all this mystery mado us
feel a deep interest in her. Hut sho was
so quiet, so dignified, and said so little to
any ol tho troupe, save in tho way of
business, that we could ask her no question-.
" She had a favorite song a pensive,
touching thing, supposed to bo addressed
by a dying wife to a stern huiband, which
she was fond of singing, when alone, though
never on tho stage. Hut ouj night, wheu
in the city of Now York, tho audience
appl tudcd her rapturously, and tho cries
of "encore" wero so loud, that she was
forced to apprar again. Sho did not repeat
the song, however, but after a moment's
pause, began that sad, thavgh dclio ous
strain. Tho audienco held their breath,
and as I looked cautiously through tho
curtain, I saw a gentleman who hid just
entered a side box, close beside tho stage,
start, and lean forward towards her His
faco was pale as death, and ho seemed to
tremble in every limb. Suddenly sho
looked up her eyes met his - she faltered,
and the song died upon her lips.
" He leaped from his box, str ight upon
tho stigo, whilo tho auiienco looked on,
dumb with wonder.
" Constance, is it thus I find you?" ho
asked, in a tone of anguish. " Oh ! my
husband, you little know ' she faltered,
and then ho caught bar in his arms for
she was just abcut to fall, llo knelt upon
the stage and held her, 'I he audience roso,
to a man, and looked on with pity and re

ilanco of uuuttcrablc love, and placed hor
white arms feebly round his nook. He
