4 From the San Francisco Golden Ira ]
1 h4ve a mind to tell a little story. That
it is brief, may be seen at a glance; that
it's true I most emphatically avow. If the
reieli•ti de..pise it because of the first, or the
editor;, of the Era reject it for the reason
of thelliust, then I will eschew truth in the
fuiuro and devote myself to the elabora
tion of hes into chapters anti the purest
fictions into voltunee of seventeen hundred
page,. each.
With thi, understanding, I proceed at
once to remark that five years ago, or there
abouts, John Ainsley—or "Pap Ainaley,"
aA he was familiarly called—was the owner
of a hand cart, and earned a living by con
veying miscellaneous pawls from one sec
tion of the city to another, and receiving
therefor the reasonable rentuneration of fit
t) cents per load. To designate the occu
t ion in the prosiest language possible, he
11, a hand-cart man, and when not em
ployed, could always be found during
working hours at the corner of Montgomery
and California streets. His hair and long
beard were quite gray and his limbs feeble;
and if he could not shove as heavy a load
through the deep sand or up the steep grade
above him as the stalwart Teuton on the
opposite corner, thereby losing many ajob
and many a dollar, all the light loads in
the neighborhood fell to his lot, and kind
hearted men re4 ,- eisiteeplismiairtrarreten

'rho old maii tfld me. Sixteen y mint ago
he w: is a well-to farmer near Syracuse,
Neu York. 110 lad one child, a daughter.
While attondin a boarding school in that
eity. then a girl f sixteen years of age, she
termed an attac ment for a young physi
eian. Acquain ing her father of the cir
(ii nista nee-, he tly refused his consent to
her union with i man whom he had never
seen; and removing her from school, dis
patched a note In the young gallant, with
the somewhat pointed information, that
his presence in the neighborhood of the
Ainsley farm would not meet with favor.—
The reader of course surmises the result.
In less than a month there was an elope
ment. The father loaded his double-bar
relled shot-gun, and swore vengeance, but
failing to find the fugitives, he took to the
bottle. 1i is good wife implored him not to
give way to ,iespair, but he drank the deep
er, and accused her of encouraging the
elopement. In three moths the wife died.
and at the expiration of a year, when the
young couple returned to Syracuse from
Connecticut, where they had remained with
the parents of the husband, they learned
that the old man had sold his farm, squan
dered the proceeds, and was almost desti
tute. Learning of their arrival, Ainsley
drank himself into a frenzy, and proceeded
to the hotel where. they were stopping, at
tacked the husband, wounding him in the
arm with a pistol shot, and then attempt
ing the fife of his daughter, who happily
escaped uninjured through the interposi
tion of persons brought to the spot by the
report of the pistol. Ainsley was arrested,
tried and acquitted on the plea of insanity.
The daughter and her husband returned
to Connecticut, since which time the fath
er had not heard from them. He was sent
to a lunatic asylum. from which he was
dismiss ad after remaining six months. In
15.51 he canoe to California. He had fol
lowed mining for two years, but finding his
strength unequal to the pursuit, rean ( ed
to this city. purchased a hand - cart,—
the rest is known. "Since there' conclu
-1 ded the old man, bowing hie face in his
hands in agony, "I have zioi, tasted liquor,
nor have I seen my poet child."
I regretted that I-had oeen so inquisi
tive. and expressed to the sufferer the sym
pathy I really felt for him. After that, I
seldom passed the corner without looking
for Pap Anisley, and never saw him but
to think of the sad story he had told me.
tine chilly, drialing day in the Decem
ber follow ing,a gentleman having purchased
a small marble top table at an auction room
opposite, proffered to the old man the job
of conveying it to his residence, on Stockton
street. Not wishing to accompany the °W
rier, he bad selected the face, probaby giv
ing the beat assurance of the carefuldelivery
of the purchase.
Furnished with the number of the house,
the old cartman, after a pretty trying
struggle withr the steep ascentof California
street, reached his destination, and depos
ited the table in the hall. Lingering a
moment, the lady did not surmise the rim
the cartage.

What a Blind Ilan can Do

achievements of a blind genius now lit ing
in Ludlow:

Tears old, and who does not remember that
he ever saw. The circumstances which at
tended the loss of his vision are almiist too
horrible for belief; yet we hare no reason
to doubt them as they have been related to
us. His widowed mother married a drunk
ard, and his step-father, conceiving a aptte
against the child, undertook, when intoxi
cated, to put his eyes out. tioing further
in his diabolical purpose, he was about to
thrust a red-hot poker down his throat.
when the frightened but desperate mother
interfered and prevented it. The child wit.-

that the sclerotic coat of each was burst.—
Of all this he has no memory, and a blessed
thing it is for him. At nine years of age,
he lost his mother, and in that loss became
perfectly friendless.—From that day to this
he has mainly taken care of himself; and
now, although cheated by rascally agents.
and laboring under every possible disad
vantage, has money at interest !
Now let us see what this man has done.
He is a mechanic and knows every part of
a steam engine as well as if he could see.—
He is an engineer, has not only had charge
of stationary engines, but has run as en
gineer on the Mad River Railroad of Ohio!
Of course, he ran with a look out, and be
tween his lookout and himself he had ar
ranged a series of abbreviations of language,
so that he could learn from him the posi
tion of any object on the track instantane
ously. He was engineer, let it be remem
bered of a passenger train ! What is more
remarkable than all is, that he has made a
beautiful little steam engine with his own
hands, so small that hetan carry the whole
of it in hispocket,., and get up steam at
pleasure. This -B ight well be considered
accomplishmeds enough for one blind man
but this istrot a bginning.

a voice which, in many charac- j
' tics, is without doubt the most won

eveninr of the present week he was invited
to a prrvate house in this -city to give an '
exhibition of his musical abilities, and a
few musical hien and women were invited
to hear him, all of whom will bear testi
mony to their astonishment and delight. '
We suppose that all Musical people will
shrug their shoulders with incredulity,
when we tell them that his voice has the ,
compass of five octaves ; yet such is the bat '
that be demonstrated to this company.--
Of course, the lowest notes are guttural.
and the highest' falsetto ; but the falsetto
notes are pleasant and good, and the gut
turals true tones, and as musical se such
tones can be. We are not sufficiently
versed in musical terms to tell what his
lowest note is, but it is the lowest in the
piano, arranged upon the usual scale—or
triple C, as he calls it. His chest tones are
excellent ; and although Carl Formes may
have more power, his quality is no better,
while in his low notes he goes down “out
of sight" of Carl Formes altogether. We
can gkis no ides'of this voice by any com
parison, for we have never heard a voice
with which to compare it.

Consider how universal are newspapers
in America. They penetrate every nook

of power has such a sphere. The pulpit.

newspaper, touch society ii'ew places.
The newspaper in America is universal.—
It reaches within and without from surface
to core. It travels everywhere, is bought
by everybo* • read by all classes, and is
wholly or nearly the only reading of more
than half our population. Its service to
good morals and to intelligence among the
people is incalculable. All the libraries of
I Europe are not of as much service to the
nations of Europe as the newspaper is to
the Americin nation. Its power is grow-
Mg. Who would, twenty years ago, have

laughed the youhg man a►r he dropped
down in theiady's palm half a dozen gold
"Yes, you are, Edward, the very best
husband in the world," and she lifted up
her sweet face beaming with smiles, as a
June day with sunshine.
"Thank you, thank you, for the very
dattoring words. And now, dear, I want
you to have the cloak by next Christmas.
I'm anxious to ree how you will look in

shining pieces in her rosy palm, "yon know

dollars for a velvet cloak."

cloak, Mary, and I've set my mind upon
your having it. Then, it'll last you so many
years, that it will be more economical in

It was evident the lady was predisposed
to conviction. She made no further at

pieces, as she rose up saying. "Well, dear,

Edward and Mary Clark were the hus
band and wife of a year. He was a book
keeper in a ltirge establishment, with a sal

of his cottage home in the suburbs of the
city, for within its walls dwelt two lives
that were set like music to poetry, keeping
time to each other. And here dwelt, also,

Mrs. Clark came into the sitting-room
suddenly, and the girl lifted her head, and
then turned it away quickly, but not until
the first,glance told the lady that the fair
face wastavrollen and stained with tears.
Janet Hill was a young seamstress whom.
Mrs. Clark had occasionally employed for
the last six months. She was always at
tracted by her young bright face, her mod
est yet dignified manner, and now the lady
saw at once that some great sorrow had
smitten the girl.
Obeying the promptings of a warm, im
pulsive heart, she went to her and laid her
hand 'on" her arm, raying softly, "Won't
you tell!me what is troubling you, Janet?"
" Nothing that anybody can help." an
swered the girl, trying still to avert her
face, while the tears swelled in her eyes
from the effort she made to speak.
But perhaps I can. At any rate you
know, it does us good sometimes to confide
our sorrows to a friend, and I need not as
sure you that I sincerely grieve because of
your distress."
And do with kind words and half-caress
ing moviements, of the little band, laid on
the seamstress's arm, Mrs. C. drew from
her lips, her sad story.
She was an orphan, supporting herself

He had been for some time a kind of under

where there was every prospect of his pro

self in the summer by lifting some heavy
bales of goods, and at last a dangerous fever
set in, which had finally left him in so ex
hausted a state that the Doctor despaired
of his recovery.
"And to think I shall never see him more,
Mrs. Clark," cried the poor girl. with a
fresh burst of tears. "To think he must
die away there, among strangers, in the
hospital, with no loving face to bend over
him in his last hours, or brush away the

down in a storm of tears.
-Poor child, poor child," murmered
Mrs. Clark, her sweet eyed; swimming
with tears. "Row much would it cost for
you to go to your brother and return?"
she asked at last.
"About thirty dollars. I haven't so

mlu A u rought passed quickly through Mrs.
Clark's mind. She stood still a few me

we will see what an be done for you,"
and the warm; cheerful tones comforted
the sad hems of the seastuttrees.
• The lady west up debs and took the
pieces out - of her ivory portemonnaie.
There was a brief sharp struggle in her
mind. "SomehOw I've set my heart on
this velvet cloak," she thought. "and
Edward will be disappointed. I was go.

And she closed the port-monnaie reeointa
ly, and went down stairs.
"Janet, put up your work this moment
—there is no time to be lost. Hate is the
money. Take it and go to your brother."
The girl lifted up her eyes a moment,
almost in bewilderment, to the lady, and
then, as she comprehended the truth, the
cry of such joy broke from her lips, that its
memory never faded from the heart thro'
all the after years of Mrs. Clark's life.
"George! George !" The words leaped
from her lips, as the sister sprang forward
to the low bed where the youth la, his
white, sharpened face, gleaming deat h-like
from amidst his thick yellow curls.
He opened his large eyes suddenly—s
flush passed over his pallid face. He
stretched out his thin arms : "0 Janet I
Janet ! I have prayed God for the sight of

"His pulse is stronger than it has been

he made his morning visit through the
wards of the hospital.
"His sister came yesterday, and watched
with him," answered the attendant, glanc
ing at the young girl, who hung breathless
over the sleeping invalid.
"Ah, that explains it. I'm not certain
but that the young man has recuperative
power enough left to recover, if he could
have the care and tenderness for the next
two months, which love alone can furnish."

words ! That very morning she had an

In a day or two, George was removitti

sister installed herself by his couch, his
nurse and comforter.
Three years have passed. The shadows
of the night were dropping already around.
Mrs. Clark sat in her chamber, humming
a nursery tune, to which the cradle kept a
sort of rythmic movement. Sometimes
she would pause suddenly, and adjust the
snowy blankets around the face of tho lit
