• It was a very plain' face. ,My eye rested
upen it, for a moment or two, and then wan
dered. away tothe countenance of another
Maiden, :whose 'beauty ravished the eyes of
every beholder; and as I gaied, with a feel
ing delight, upon its transcending loveliness
an impulse of thankfulness stirred in my
heart—thankfulness tO the Creator of beauty.
' The first maiden sat alone ; around the other I
stood a group 'of admirers. So . marked a
contrast between the two, as well in features,
as in the impression made thereby, excited, ,
first, something like Pity for her , whom na
ture-had endowed so poorly ; 'and 1 turned
to look at, her again with a kinder feeling in
, my heart. i
'There she sat, all alone. Yes'',, her face
was very, very plain ; but it did not strike
mo as repulsive. Themouth, which had noth:
ingot' the ripe fullness that gave such an
enamoring grace to the other maiden, was
placid ;, and though not encircled by a per
petual wreath of smiles, calmly enthroned
' the gentle spirit of.content. Her eyes were
small,, the lashes thin, and thearch, above
them faintly visible. , Arch 1' 1 can scarcely
give it that graceful designation. I had not
yet teen the expression of those - eyes. 4 I
looked toward her, with -that strange consti
ousneis of observation whichnll- have re
marked, bid which few can explain, she
turned her eyes from another part of the
. room and looked at Me: They did.not flash
brilliantly, nor •strike me, at the first glance,
as having in them anythiug peculiar' They
Were the common eye we meet at every turn
--'-'-no soul in tliem. ;1. give my first impres
si . 'My second was different. I had turn
ed my eyes away ;, but something I bad seen
ca ed them almost involuntarily to wonder
_beck to tfie maiden's face: A friend - whom
,Ilhighly regarded—a young man of -more
than common-worth—had' crossed the room,
and' was standing before her. She bad lift
ed her eyes to his face, and there was new
likht in them—not a dazzling,' .but a soft,
winning light that purity and love made
- - iimost" beautiful.
They were conversing, and I watched, for
some time, the play of that unattractive
cotentetance, unattractive no longer.
' ' lAAh I" said I. "there is a beautiful soul
within - that casket." .
And as I SPoke,' thus, in the silence of any
own thoughts, I looked towards the other
maiden, who was still surreunded by a - crowd
of admirers.
- • "Her beauty is wonderful ?" I could not
help. the utterance of this tribute to her
charms. Yet scarcely had I spoken. the
s.‘ words, when she turned to one of the grot
which had gathered Omit her, a slight.Ourl
of unlovely scorn upon her lips, and threw
at him art arrowy word that wounded as it
struck. She saw that hurt, and a gleam
of pleasure went forth, from. her S brilliant
eyes. -
filmy veil Came between my eyes and
flit4Ountenance, which a little while be
fore: and shone upon me with . a loveliness
thatwas, absolutely enchanting. I turned
again to -the other maiden. My friend still
stood before her, and her eves were lifted to
his face, She Was uttering some .sentiments
7i . --what, -I did not hear--but they must have
beef good and beautiful in conception, to
have lilted, every-lineament with, such "winn
' ing grace.
"Ah l" said I, the real, truth dratiing up
on:my mind, ',"here is' the inner, imperish
able beauty. The beauty, which; instead of
losing its spring-time freshness,,forever ad
vances towards eternal youth."
kfew weeks later, and my friend com
municated to me the inteligence, that his
heart:had been wert,by the . charms of this
unattractive maiden. Once lie had been a
worshipper at the ot'fier shrine—the shrine
of beauty ; and I knew- that, only a few
months before, hand and heart were ready
to be .offered. Accepted they would have'
- been, for he had personal beauty, attractive
' manners, wealth, and above all, a manly hon
o4ble spirit.
For all I had.seen, I was. not Preparrd for
thitr.-- The maiden might be good—l did not
question that—but ,she was so -homely ; and
this homeliness would be only the more ap
patent in' contrast
„with his elegant exterior.
' It was almost on my_ lip to remonstrate—to
' suggest this thought to his mind. But. I
prudently forebore.
,"You know her
_well, .1 hope." .I could
not help the utterance of this caution.
• "She is not thought to be beautiful,' he
replied, seeming, to - perceive my thoughts,
"indeed, •as to feattires, she is plain ", yet,
to person, she is tall, graceful, dignified, and
with Carriage that a queen might envy."
This was true to the lettdr. I had not
thought of 'it before. ;Nature had given 'at
least this compen'satior4
"But the higher beauty," he added, "is of
the soul. All else is soon dinimished. Scarce

"If she possesses this beauty ?"

warmly. • have 'seen it looking forth from
her eyes, wreathing about her lips, and giv

" It s musical in every tone of her voice."
"Goodness alone is-beautifUl." I said.
"And she is good," - - -- he replied. I never
met one who so rarely spoke of herself, or
whoaeemed to.take so loving an interest in
human*. .. •
'That is God-like." .

about leading, his chosen - bride to the altar.
"13tow.dotIld he throw hiMselt away upon,
such an ugly creature ?" said one, coarsely.
"He might have taken his choice from the
loveliest," remarked another.
"He will tire of that face in a month. Ali

• But my friend knew what he,was doing
I was present at the wedding.. - • *
"If she were not so homely," -I heard . a
lady remark,, as she stood beside her hand
some young husband. "Whatcanlie see in
her to love ?" ;
I turned and looked at the' speaker. Na
ture had been kind in giving her an attrac
tive face - ; but the . slight curl of, contempt
that was on her lip marred' everything, I
glanced back to the young bride's counte
nance; her pure soul was shining through it,
like light through'a veil. -To-me, she seem
ed at that moment more beautiful...than the
other ; and far more worthy to ,be loved.
The brilliantly beautiful maiden of whom
.1 have spoken, gave her band in _marriage
about the same time. Her husband'xwas
young man of good charileter s kind feelings,
and with sufficient income'to enable- them to
live in a style of imposing *elegance. A se
ries of gay parties was the social welcome
given to the lovely bride. But Such honor
did not attend the nuptials of,her plainer
A few years later and the moral qualities
of each were more apparent in ,their faces.
I remember meeting both, in campany, ten
years after their marriage. I was - standing
at one end of the room, when an Over-dressed
woman, with a showy face, came in, accom
panied by a gentleman - whom I knew, not
as an acquaintance, but as a man of businesS
and the - husband of the beauty. I should
scarcely - have recognized the latter, but for
him. What a change.was there! At a dis
tance the face struck you as still beautiful,
but on a closer view, the illusion vanished.
The mouth had grown sensual, peevish, and
ill-natured; the eyes were bright, but the
brightness repelled rather than attracted.
After awhile, wondering at the change, I
_drew. near and entered - into conversation
with her. The music of her voice I remem
bered. There -was no . music in it now ; at
least none for my ears. A certain abrupt
ness in her manners, born_of pride, or super
ciliousness, was to me particularly offensive.
I tried her on various subjects, in order to
bring out some better aspects in her charac
ter.—The Swedish Nightingale had just
been here, and had sung to my heart as no
living man or woman had ever sung—l spoke
of her. "Too artificial," was the reply; - with
an air of critical vanity, that gave to my
feelings a ripple of indignation.: referred
to a new poem, remarkable for - its purity of
style ; she coldly remarked with depreciation
on some of its special 'beauties, merely re
peating, as I knew, a certain captiousreview
er. I was indoubt whether shebad read.ei'en
a'page of the book. Then I spoke of a lady
I present. She tossed her head, and arched
her lip, saying: "She's too fond of gentle.:
men's attentions."_
yaried still, my efforts,' but'to no good
purpose. The, more I conversed with her,
the less beautiful became her face, for the
unloveliness of her true character was per
petually gleaming through and spoiling the
already sadly marred features. I left • her
side, on the first good opportunity, glad to
getaway.- Ten years ago, in all companies.
she was the cynosure of every eye. The
praise of her beauty was on every lip. But
so changed was she now, that none bent- to
.do her reverence. I noticed her sitting alone,
with 'a discontented look, long, after. I had
left my place at her side. Her husband, by
the attentions ho.paid,her during the even
ing, might have - been unconscious of her
But there was another lady in the room
who was, all thewhi le th e centre, of ari admiring
circle. :None, perhaps, considered her' face
beantiful; yet to every one who looked upon
it, came a perception of beauty that associa
ted itself with her individuality. In repose,
her features were plain; .yet not repulsive in
the slightest particular. But, when thought
and feeling flowed into them, 'eVery eye was
charmed. There was a nameless grace in
her manner that gave additional , power - to
the attractions of her countenance.
. I was half in doubt at first, of her identi
ty, as I gazed upon her from, a distant part
of the room ; she looked, in my eyes, so
really beautiful. But the presence of my old
"friend in the group, my old friend who had
been wise enough to prefer beauty .of soul to
beauty of face, and passing over; I added
another to the circle, which gathered around
There was nothing obtrusive in i her- con
versation; nothing of conscious pride,; 'but
a` calm, and, at times, earnest utterance of
true sentiments. Not once during the even- '
Mg did I hear a word froin her lips that jarr
ed the better feelings.
"The good are beautiful!" Many times
did this sentiment find spontaneotis utterance.'
in my heart as- I looked upon her ; and then
turned my eyes to lthe discontented face of
another, who a few years before carried off,
in'every company i,he palm 'of loveliness:
Yes, here Was the imperishable beauty.
Maiden! would you find this beauty?, no
matter if your features Were ,not cast in clas
sic mould, this higher, truer beaUty may be
yours if you will seek for it in the denial of
selfishness, and the repression of discontent.
"The good are beautiful." Lay that up in
your thoughts. Treasure it as the most sub
lime wisdom.
Gather-into the store-house of your minds
sentiments of regard for others; and-let your
hands engagees in gentle charities. 'To do
good and to communicate forget nit. If
tempted to murmur think of your many bles

the graces that shine through the otter coyr

light and loveliness to all eyes.

old. The outer eye:may become ditr4and ticu3

• The n /Efitgerstciwn Herald, a staunch Union
paper, -thus congratulates Pennsylvania on
the re-nomination of Gov. Curtin.
"The 'Union Convention of Pennsylvania
_assembled at Pittsburg on Wednesday last,
and by
. a vote of ninety-eight to thirty-six
re-nominated Hon. Andrew G. Curtin for
Governor. Jedge,'Wobdwand is his Dente
erotic or Copperhead (*Fitment, and the con
-tedt between - them bids 'fair to be ' a close one
—close; Only, however, because the fifty- or
seventy thousand soldiers from the State
who are engaged in fighting the battles of
their - country will not be permitted to vote.
Could they have an bpportunity of recording
their ballots there would be little or no doubt'the result, for as Gov. Curtin nobly
stood by them at all times and under all cir
cumstances, it is but fair to presume that
without distinction of party they, cheerfully
and' gratefully sustain him: ,
"But we shall not believe that, even though
he should be deprived of the soldier's support,
important and decisive of the election as it
would be, he can be overcome by the numer
ous sndke species of disloyalists= opposed to
him. Party prejudices may be aroused
against - ,him, and political malice May and
doubtless will, do its, worst to encompass his
defeat, but, we shall not believe that the
hearts of the - people of Pennqlvania can be
alienated from so able and faithful a' public
servant until the ballot boxes speak the
damnable act of ingratitude in language
which cannot be misunderstood. The adder
stung the breast which warmed it into life,
but blacker would be the ingratitude of the I
sons of the Keystone if they strike down or
turn their backs upon Governor Curtin, who
has undoubtedly rendered them_ inestimable
services in these perilous times.
"When the rebels inaugurated this terrible
civil war, they fined their. eyes and hearts on
the invasion and despoliation . of Pennsylvtt.
nia. This was their settled purpose early in
thewar, and if Pennsylvania had been cursed
with a, weak or semi-loyal Executive, they
would have rushed their desolating hordes
across Maryland and into the Cumberland
Valley long before, they did, and would have
remained until they had reduced it toa blank
waste. But Governor Curtin watched them
closely, sent troops by thousands and tens of
thousands to the seat of war to keep the reb
els employed at home, drid thus for two years,
except last fall when thpy failed to get farther
than the State line, prevented them from car
rying out their policy of invading and rob
bing Pennsylvania,
"And when at last they did come, but
• through no dereliction of duty on -his part,
'he promptly and fearlessly flung the battle
flag to the breeze, and after a' herculean ef
fort succeeded in overcoming the panic which
the suddenness and appalling magnitude of
the invasion bad produced among, the people
of his Commonwealth. In response to his
patriotic appeals they took courage and ral
lied to the defence of their hopes and fire
sides. They rushed to Harnpburg twenty
thousand strong and prevented the Capitol
from falling into the hands of the enemy,
and when at last that enemy beat, a hasty
retreat across the Potomac, they - were close
upon• his heels, and guarded the Potomac,
the true line of defence and protection, until:
the emergency was entirely over. -
"Few men would or could `have done for
Pennsylvania what Governor Curtin has in
these trying times ; and feeling as Marylan
ders, and citizens of the old county in Ma
ryland which has materially suffered from
the rebel invasion, that our peribi were iden
tified with those of our neighbors across the
line, and our relief from4ose, perils' the
same, we - should be' want' in gratitude
were we to withhold thid poor weed of Traise
from one who so richly .deserves it."
The Baltimore Patriot thus truthfully and
pointedly states the issues in, Pennsylvania :
The re-nomination of this, gentleman, for
the post he lies so honorably tilled inthe Ex
ecutive Chair of the old back-bone State of
the Republic, is hailed with sincere delight
by every truly loyal man of the nation. No
other public man, outside a the service of
the National government, has had it in his
power to render such signal •service to the
cause of the country, since the rebellioncom
menced, as Gov. Curtin—and none have been
more prompt and energetic in their efforts
than he has shown himself Jo be. We of
Maryland, owe him- a peculiar debtof grati
tude, for his prompt response ,to the-calls
made upon him for help, when our State was
invaded --and if ever the opportunity , pre
sents itself, the truly loyal sons of our State
will rejoice in repaying the debt.
The -nation is deeply interested in the po
litical contest which is to come off this Fall
in PerinsYlvania, for it is a contest literally
bet - een patriotism and covert treason—and
we trust the tru%,and faithful patriots of that
tried old State, *ill be up and a doing, and
display their devotion to _correct principles,
bysecturing to their noble governor such. -a
'majority at the ensuing election, as will give
the keenest rebuke to the sneaking copper
heads in their State, who are endeavoring to
enact the same game by which the people of
New York and New 'Jersey, and some of the
Western States, were defrauded last fall, into
the election of just such a class of men as
the candidate who has been brought out to
oppose Governor Curtin. Under profeisions
of Unionism, all his antecedents prove him
to beJattore f the friend of the rebellion
than of his country's cause—that he has
'more charity for Jett: Davis and his rebellion
.than he has for the government of - his coun
'try, and the restoration of the Union. The
same fraud will be attempted in Pennsylva
nia that was played off upon the honest de
mocracy of the States alluded toabove. The
plea was raised at-the time • when our arms
had met with reverses, that the administra
tion was not carrying on the war with suffi
icient energy, and that if the democracy could
only get Into power, the difference Would
soon be manifested in the increased vigor
which would be instilled into every depart
' ment. This apparently honest appeal had
-its effect upon the hearts
,of many of the
;loyal portion of that party, math° elections
absolutely turrted upon that veryy point, of a
imore. vigorous prosecution of the war—but
I no - sooner had the deceitful copperheads ob
tained the power in their respeetive States,
than the mask was thrown oft; and a syste
,matic effort has been made ever since to
thwart the govern - mat in all its measures,
so far as they have dared to go for fear of too
great a rebound of public indignation against
,them-the riots in New York-were' the cal
*inatiott of this copperhead spirit,' and the
leaders•doubtless stood ready to take advant
age of theAutrages of the mob, if they coOld
;only have discerned that the outbreak would
be successful; They, however, were disap
;pointed; and the veil which was intended to
shield theM frem a participation in those
:outrages,.was too thin to prevent then" being
exposed to the public gaze,—and every hort
:est"man to Whatidever party he :may have
;heretofore belonged, will bathe, future mete
tout to them the indignation which is justly
dne to•their,iniquitous course. • _

Errors of detail are unavoidable in the
goVPrament,of a great nation. • No Adirilu-i
istration eier existed Which was free froin
them, and none - ever will. We must judge'
AdminiStrations by -their measures and poli
cy, for while some Executives commit more
errors of, detail than • others, it must be borne 1
in mind that where an Executive has three
times the amount of work to do that others
have ever had, we must expect the relative
proportion'-of- errors of detail. The Gover
nor of Delaware, for example, has far less to
attend to than the Governor of Pennsylva
nia, and must necessarily be expected tou,'be
freer of errors.
During the administration of, Governor
Packer he had . , none but the ordinary busi
ness of an era of peace and prosperity to
transact, and there he had beaten paths of
routine and policy to follow, wherein he was
tolerably safe. Governor Curtin has held
the same office diiring the stormiest era ever
known to American history. He had no
beaten paths to follow. His State had never
before been invaded since it became a State.
The country bad never been engaged in a
war of such magnitude, and- civil war had
been unknown to' us. All themeasures were
of necessity new and previously untried.
But when we look back now upon his Ad
ministration, how well he succeeded in all
his duties; how nobly he has kept the. old
Keystone State true to the Union and ahead
of all rivalry in troops and loyalty ! Errors
of-detail he - has committed, Sts all men do.
, But it is surprising how few they have been.
He may' safely go before his constituents
upon such a record as he has made, and chal
lenge the scrutiny of the , world ; for he haS
been such a chief magistrate as Pennsylva
nia needed in the terrible crisis through
which she was passing.
So'we May say of the national Adminis
tration, and as - its errors have been so widely
magnified and canvassed by-Democratic par
with' the greed of office,' per
haps it is as well to put upon record before
the people what it has done in its general
measures,lhat 'its errors of detail may be
compared with its successes of policy.
lst. It has made this republic the greatest
military Power im the world.
2d. It has retrieved the national credit,
and placed:it upon Suck a basis that 'it can
not again be shaken.
3d. It has given us a national paper Cur

siovEnivoit CritTlN.
In the following, from the gt. Louis Demo
crat, the highest compliment is paid to the
great earnestness and patriotic energy dis
played by the Goiernor of Pennsylvania.
TWO, .Democrat regards his election as of na
tional importance i
When we look at the period during which
Gov., Curtin has been called upon to admin
ister the affairs of the great State of which
he has been Chief Magistritte, the number of
important and • responsible duties devolving
upon him, and the great amount of patronage
he has had to distribute, we can well under
stand how liable he was to give dissatisfaction
in some quarters, and how liable to make
occasional mistakes. It would be strange if
both these things had not occurred. There
is one thing about Gov. Curtin's administra
tion.upon which all, - we think, must agree,
viz : that it has at all times beeni'conducted
with. the loftiest zeal for the cause of the
Union. This fact has been made Manifest on
many occasions,' and in many, ways, and is
`sufficient to make Union men all over the
country, who have no interest -in the local
jealousies of PennfiYlvania polities, to hope
most anxiously for his re-election. By all
such men the defeat of, Gov. Curtin at' this
time would be regarded as a'-national calam.
ity. The character of his opponent 'Judge
Woodward—a Democrat of the Seymour
Copperhead school, leaves no question as to
the great issue involved in the contest. ^. It is
true Unionism against false Unionism. In
such a conflict, men who truly love their
country, and desire the unity, of the Govern
ment, have no alternative in the bestowal. of
their sympathies and any 'influence they may
wield, Their voice, to their brethren in _Penn
sylvania, whereVer they inay. be located, can
not fail to be an earnest appeal forunity, zea
and industry in action. Let_ local disagre :-
