But the accumulated wealth of years melted away
before speculation's frown, and the beggared mer
chant, with his little family, wandering westward,
to retrieve his fallen fortunes. In the bustling
western city, where he made his home, he soon
found employment; but fortune seemed to sport
with the struggling man even here, for the firm
by which he was employed losing several thousand
dollars, charged it to Ins inattention and careless-.
ness, did he was thrown from employment.
After months of ceaseless- searching, which
drained the last dollar from his light psirse, he ob
tained another situation; but; within three weeks
a heavy robbery was committed in the store; sus
picion fastened urfou Edward IN) nue-; an under
clerk asserted to have seen him conceal the mon

tale obtained ample credence.
Wealthia Wynne, het husband in a prisoner's
cell, was left penniless, homeless, and friendless,
to fold her babes to her bosom and endure suffer

hers was not a heart to sink under misfortune,
and though very little hope for the future illum
ined her path, she unfearingly trod the daily rou
tine of almost superhuman labor to procure bread

the future, and in His wisdom her faith rested.

A !WORT OF OUR LATE I(qt-I:SIDE:VT
The annexed, another evidence of the kind
heart of our late President, Mr. Lincoln, we take
from the Independent:
Oa the Monday before his death, when our late
lieloved President was on his return from Rich
mond, he stopped at City Point. Calling upon
the head surgeon at that place, Mr. Lincoln told'
him that he wished to visit all the ho-intals under
his charge, aud shake hands with ever} soldier.—
The surgeon , asked the President if he knew what
a task he was undertaking, and told him that
there were tb'en between live and six thousand
soldiers at that place, and it would he quite a tax
upon his strength to visit all the wards and shake
hands with every soldier. Mr. Lincoln answered,
ith a smile, that he -guessed he was equal to,
the mak ; at any rate he would try, and go-ns far
as he could; he should never probing) see the

appreciated what _they had done for their coun
Finding ituseless to try to dissuade him, the
surgeon began to make his rounds with the Presi
dent; w ho walked froth bed to bed, extending his
hand to all,eia)ing a few words of aympathy to
some, making kind inquiries of others, and wel
comed by all w nth the heartiest cordiality. As
they passed along they wine to a ward in which

prisoner. As the tall figure of the kindly visitor
appeared in sight, he was recognized by the rebel
soldier, who, raising hinnielf on his elbow in bed,.
-watched Mr. Linen' as he iifiproached, aud, ex
tending his hand, exclaimed, w hine tears ran
down his cheeky - : "Mr. Lincoln, I have long wan
ted to see you, to ask your forgiveness for over
raising my hand against the old tlag." Mr. Lin
coln was noted to tears. Ho heartily shook the
hand of the repentant rebel, and assured him of
his good w ill, and, - with a few words of kind ad
s ice, passed on. After some hours the tour id
the various hospitals was made, and Mr Lincoln
returnyiwith the surgeon to his office. They
had sea entered, however, when a .messen
ger came, saying that one ward had been omitted,
and "the boys" wanted to see Mr. Lincoln. 'The
surgeon, who was thoroughly tired, andkuew Mr.
Lincoln must be, tried to dissuade him from go
ing: but the-good man said he must go back; he
ould not knowingly omit one; "the boys"w ould
be so disappointed. So he went Withthe mes
senger, accompanied by the surgeon, and shook
hands with the gratified soldiers, and then re
turned again-to the office. The sturgeon express
ed the tear that Mr. Lincoln's arm would belam

tainly must ache. Mr. Lincoln smiled, and, say
ing something about his "strong muscles," step
ped out at the °mu door. took up a very large,
heavy ale, which lay there by a big of wood, aud
'chopped vigorously for a few moments, sending
the chips flying in all directions; and then, pans-
ing, he extended his right arm to its full length,
holding the axe out horizontally, without its even
quivering as he held it. Strongmen, who looked
on—men accustomed to manuallaborould not
hold the same axe in that position for a moment.
Returmng to the office, took a glass of lemon

while he was , the chips he had chopped

WIFE AND SQt'Aws.—l heard an anecdote of
Kaffirland to-day, which though irrevelantto our
adventures here, is so amusing that I must record
it, particularly as my informant vouelied for its
truth. At an outpost far up the country resided
an officer and his wife. The latter was warned
by her husband not to venture alone far from the
house: but one day imprudentlygoing beyond her
usual limits, she encountered a wild looking Kaf
fir, who took her by the hand, and would be
moved by no entreaties to suffer her to depart.
He made her sit down, aud - untying her bonnet,
let down her long hair, at which he expressed -
rapturous adiniration. He next took off her
gloves, and appeared enchanted with her white
hands; and then proceeded to divest her of her
shoes and stockings, and wondered at her little
white feet. The next morning the lady and her
husband were awakened at an early hour by a
chattering under their window; andon enquiring
the cause of the disturbance, the gentleman was
accosted by the hero of the previous day who had
been so impressed by the eharnis of our fair coon
trywoman, that he had come with twelve squaws
to make the liberal offer of exchanging them for
the gentleman's wife, and was not a little Bur
prised when his generous terms were refused.-r-
