THE STOLEN SILK DRESS:
A TILE Or Tf.rTH.
In a c'.tj, wbich sliail It nsmele, there
lived, long ago, a young girl the only daugh
ter ot a widow. She came from the eoun'ry.
apd wss a ignorant of the t3rigerof the city
s tlie squirrels of ber native fields. She had
lossy black hair, geBtlc-beansirg ejt-s, and
"lips liie wet eoral." Of course, be knew
that &be was beautiful; for when she. was a
i cbild, strangers often stoppt-d. as be passed.
' and exclaimed, " Ilow handsome she is l"1 And

her with admiration. She was poor, and re
moved to the city to earn ter livtEg by cover
ing umbrellas. She was just at that suscepti
ble age, when youth is pa:cg into woman
hood ; when tbe sotl begins to ba pervadrd
with that restless ptinctple, which iisp-sls
poor humans to seek perfection in union.
At the hotel opposite, Lord Henry Stn art,
an English nobleman, bad at that ticse taken
lodgicgs. His visit to this country is doubt
Jess recollected by many, for it made a great
sensation at the time. He was a peer of the
realm, descended from the royal line, and
waa, moreover, a strikingly handsome man, of
right princely carriage. He wag subsequent
ly a member of the British Parliament, and is
As this distinguished stranger passed to and
Jrom bis hotel, be encountered the cmbrella
girl, and waa impressed by ber nocommon
beanty. He easily traced ber to tfc- opposite
store, where be soon alter went to purchase
an umbrella. This was followed op by pres
ents of flowers, chats by the way-side, and in
vitations to walk or ride; all of which were
gratefully accepted by the ensaspeciing rus
tic. He was playing a game lor temporary
excitement ; she with a head full of romance,
and a heart melting unlet the influence of
love, was Encottciously endangering the hap
piness of ter whole life.
Lord Henry invited ber to Tisit the public
gardens, on the 4th of Joly. In the simplici
ty ol ber heart, she believed all his flattering
professions, and considered herself bis bride !
elect; she therefore accepted his invitations ;
with innocent frankness. But she had no j
dress fit to appear on such a public occasion, j
with a gentleman of high rank whom she .
verily supposed to be ber destined husband. 1
While these tbocghts involved in her mind, f
her eye was unfortunately attracted by a bean- j
tiful piece of silk belonging to ber employer, j
Ah, could she cot take it without beicig seen,
pay for it secretly when she bad earned mo
ney enough ? The temptation conquered ber
in a moment of weakness. Sheconcealed the
silk and conveyed it to her ledgings. It was
the first thing sbe had ever stolei, and ber re
morse was painful. She would have carried
it back, bet she dreaded a discovery. She
was not sure that her repentance would be
set in a spirit of forgiveness.
Oa tbe eventful iib of July, she came out
in her new dress Lord Henry complimented
Ler oa her elegant appearance, but sbe was
not happy. Oa their way to the gardens, be
talked to her la a manlier sbe did not compre
hend. Perceiving this, be spoke more ex-
plicitly. The guileless youug creature stop-
ped, looted Into hi f..ce with mournful re- j
pYoacb, and burst isto tears. The nobleman

you an innocent girl " "I am, I am," cried
she with xonvuUive sobs. "Ob, what have I
ever done or said, that yoa should ask me j
that?" Her words stirred the deep fountains
of tis better nature. "If yoa are innocett,"
aaid be, tTod forbid that I should make you
otherwise. But yoa accepted my invitations
and presents so readily, that I snppossd you
understood me." "What cotli I understand,"
Skid she, "except thai you intended to make
me your wife?" Though reared among the
proudest distinctions of rank, ha felt no incli
nation to saiiie. He b'-ashed and was silent.
The heartless conventionale of life stood
rebuked ia the presence of af-jetionate altn
plicity. He conveyed ber to ber bumble
home, and bade ber farewell, with a thankful
consciousness that be bad dona no irretrieva
ble injury to her latere prospects. Tbe re
m em bra Dee of her to hina would soon be as
tbe recollection of last: year'a butterflies.
Witb ber the wound was deeper, la lier sol
itary chamber she wept, ia bitterness of heart,
over ber ruined air castles. And that dress
which she bad stolen to make an , appearance
befitting his bride! Oa, what if the ahonld
be discovered! Would not the heart of fcer
poor widowed mother break, if ?he bonld ev
er know that ber chM ws a tbief ? Alas, ber
wretched foreboding's were too true. Tbe
silk was traced to ber she was arrested c-n
ber way to tbe store, and dragged to prison.
There she refosed'all nourishment, aai wept
On tbe fourth day the keeper called cpon
Isaac T. Hopper, nd icfomed bim that there
was a yoDBg girl in prison who appeared to be
utterly friendless, and determined to die by
starvation. Tbe kind-hearted gentleman im
mediately went te her assistance. He foend
her lying on tbe floor of ber cell.with ber face
buried in her bands, sobbing as if her hesrt
woold break. He tried to comfort her, but be
conld obtain no answer.
"Leave as alone," said be to the keeper.
'Perhaps sf e will speak to me if there is none
to hear-" When they Here aione together,
he put bacfe tbe hair from her temples, laid his j
hand fcir.dir on her beautiful Lead, and slid
in soothing tones, "My chiii, consider rae as
thy father. Tell roe all thou bast done. If
thou hast taken this si'.k, let me know a!! a-
bt-ut it. I wiil do for thee as I would do for a
out ol thi difficulty."
After a long time spent in affectionate en-
treaty, sne leaned br youtg Lead on his
friendly shou Ider, and Bobbed out, Oh, lwth
I was -iead what will my poor mother sy,
when she knows of njy disgrace ?'
"Perhaps we can mat;ag- that she never
shall know it," replied he ; and a!!ur:rg ber
by this hope, he gradually obtained from her
the whole story of her acquaintance with the
nobleman. He bade her be comforted, and
tase nourishment ; for be would see that the
silk was paid for, and tbe prosecution with
drawn. He went immediately to her employ
er, and told him tbe story.
'This is ber first offence," said he, 'lhe girl
is young, and the only child of a poor widow.
Give ber a chance to retrieve this one false
step, and sbe may he restored to society, a
useful and honored woman I will see that
thou art paid for the silk." The man readily
agreed fo withdraw the prosecution, and said
fce would bav dealt otherwise with the girl,
had he known all the circumstances. "Tbou
ahouldat have inquired into the merits of the
case, my friend," replied Isaac. "By this
kind of thoughtlessness, many a young crea
ture is driven into the downward path, who
might easily bave been saved."
The good old man then went to tbe hotel,
and inquired lor Henry Stuart. The servant
siid bis lordship had not yet risen. "Tell
him my business is of iniportar.ee," said
Fiicci Hopper. The servant sooa returned
and conducted Lim to tie chamber. The no
b'eman appeared surprised tisat a plain old
Quaker should thus intrude upon his luxuri
ous privacy ; but when be heard bis errand,
be bluhed deeply, and frankly admitted the
tru b of the girl"s statement. His. benevo
lent visitor took the opportunity to "bear a
testimony," as the Friends sy, against the
tin and selSshr.tss of profligacy. He did it in
such a kind and fatherly manner, that the
young man's heart was touched. He excued !
himself, by saying that be would not have !
tampered with the girl, if he bad known her '
to Ti!"tcous. ! tave done many wrong j
things,' a:d he, "butjhank God, no betray-
al ot cot
ng irmt cence rests oa ray con-
I have always est-eiuri it tb- ba-
sest act of which man is capable." The im
prisonment of tbe poor girl, and the forlorn
situation ia which she had been found dis
tressed him greatly And when Isaac repre
sented that the silk had been stolen for his
ke, that the girl bad thereby lost profitable j
employment, and was obliged to return to her
distant home, ta avoid tbe danger of expo-
ure, he took out a fifty dollar note", and of-
fered to pay ber expenses. "Nay" said j
Isaac, "thou art a very rich man ,- I see in thy j
band, large roll of such notes. She is the
oaugcier 01 a poor widow, and thou has been j
tbe means of doing ber great injury.

excuse my egotism, but I now justify myself
in my own presence. I found that they pro
posed to take to themielves Fort Samter, the
forts at Key 'West and Per.sscola, Tortagas
and Fortress Monroe. I thought it was quite
essential to the digtilty and" prosperity of. the
country that we should retain thee fortresses.
I think so now. I did hope, however, that
tbe Southern people would put their feet upoa
the necks of their leaders, ard insist cpon thi
maintenance cf the Union." Bat they have
informed us that they would consent to no
uch condition. They have told ns that if we
gave tbem a blank paper and -pencil to write
tbe terms of a new compact, they would not
agree to it. Therefore it is a war declared
for all ultimate results that can come, and i

We are obliged to let Mr. Daly, a prominent
Democrat, give his confession of faith In a
very few words, but tfcey are sufficiently em -phatii;.
He said :
"There are a nGruber of men in tbe North at
present who tali; of peace, who talk of an ar
mistice, who talk of concessica, who hope for
compromise, an! who tave no pe ot tbe
wer. If pervt;s ! that temper of mind have
made cp their mind that the war is hopeless,
and that the separation of the Stales is now
inevitable, then their con duct and their decla
rations are consistent with their convictiofs ;
bt: former who profess ectertaintcg srich con
victions to be desirous for the restoration of
tbe Union, for the preservation of the land in
the terriiorial niiity with which it was com
mitted to us bour fathers I say, if each
mea entertaia that conviction, I have little
belief ia teir wisdom, and if tbey have wis
dom, I Lave doubt ia their nationality."
Hon. John Yaa Bur en receiTed a warm wel

for over aa hour. He fully endorsed the ob

been agitated, to show that, daring tfcs late

pressed bis determination tosustsia the Pres

adhered to that resolve, and saw nothing in
the proclamation ot the President, or in tba
acts passed by the last Congress, to alter that
determination. He approved of tbe act giv
ing tbe President fall control of tbe purse and
the sword, and cited a precedent in tbe act
passed in 1839, on the occasion of the occupa
tion of Maine by the British, when similar
power was conferred, with full approval of the
Democracy and of the nation at large. There
was no ootery then against -extraordinary
powers," nor shonld there be now, except by
those who wanted to see '.be rebellion prosper,
and the Federal Government weakened. Ia
regard to tbe Proclamation be did not question
its constitutionality, bnt doubted its ntility.

overthrown. lam for destroying tbls osurped

Eveiy fair-minded man ia the United States
would bear in mind that, tip to the moment
of their withdrawal from the Union, not a
hair of their.heads had been injured ; no right
of any Southern man had been Invaded.
History would reccrd that the world never
heard of a rebellion against governmental au
thority before this, whete the people who re
belled could not lay their finger upon a thing
which showed that either their property, their
liberty, or thetr laws bad betn in the slight
