" What though the spicy breezes
Blow soft o'er Ceylon's Isle,
Though every prospect pleases,
And only man is vile.'
Curiously enough, I wait just- repeating this
stanza when my new acquaintance called for
me. I had met him while on a business visit
to Ceylon; as a countryman of mine, and was
pleased with the opportunity that afforded
me a more intimate personal know ledge.'
1. thought myself fortunate in falling in with
so agreeable a gentleman, and his face and
manners were peculiarly refined. On our
second meeting 'I nodded a singular restless
ness of the-handsome dark.eyes, art 'irritable
biting of the lips, and a disposition to be con-.
gaudy on the move., , shown in the tapping
of a light, bamboo-cane, or 'the • moticiu of a
foot or hand. -•
Those things, however , no t strike rod
as singular at the time r but cdnpled with
what I afterward learned, were certain evi
dence that the man felt alteadry the gnawings
of the worm that never dies..
' Onh forenoon we lea trio` little !seaport

quite undreamed of by -the inhabitants of a
colder clime, natuke had showered her most
exquisite gifts everywhere. Trees loaded
with sweet-smelling flowers; their intense
colors wising with the foliage of-richer green,
from out of which they smiled; tall cactus
.plants, with crimson, goblet-shaped blossoms ;
lilies, gdrgeous in -the -queenly unfolding of
form and color.:----./"erycl,' 'Coated to- fullness

"This is my house," said my new friend;
.pointiriglo a low-roofed cottage, surrounded
by a wide verandah, from whose clinging
- vines sweet otters were flung upon the soft
,atinosphire—but from the moment the words
were uttered, his geniality departed.
" surely," thought I„" here is a paradise if
only toys no not wanting t"
Within the cottage enclosure were walks,
bowers and fountains. Chaste statuary were
dispersed over the grounds with most charm
ing effect. The house seemed almost a fairy
structitre, rising amidst flowers and foliage.
And the man who sat beside me, whose
smiles mounted no higher than his lips—the
dreamy,; far-looking , discontent in his eye
growing; every moment more perceptible—
was the owner of this Eden-like home.
We were met on the threshold by a lovely
child of some eleven summers. Her hair
Ming in' curls. Her eyes were particularly
lustrous yet mournful in their beauty, and on
her proud brow I seemed to see cksomething
—a shadow of sadness—an tmehildlike quiet,
as she greeted my new friend.
Dressed in pure white, she glided in before
us, and to her was left the duty of entertaining
me, while Ur. C., excusing himself in the re
mark that sickness necessarily called him
away, for a half hour or so, left the room.
Air, thought I, there - is always some ill.
This man whose manner seemed to me so
uneasy and at times constrained, bears upon
his heart the dread, perhaps, that a beloved
wife may die.
"Is your mother very unwell?" I asked of.
the little girl, who with those shadowy eyes
of hers, was regarding me gently, but atten
tively. • - •
`Yes, sir,; mamma has been sick a long
time," replied she; dropping her eyes, while
her lips trembled.
"Did you come from America?" she asked
timidly, after a long silence.
"Yes, my dean' Do you know anything
of that country ?" I returned, growing more
and more pleased with her expressive face.
"Only that mamma came from there, and
I think," she added, - hesitatingly, "that
I did. But Mr. C. will never let me talk
about it."
"Are you not, then, the little daughter of
Mr. C.?" I asked,-somewhat astonished.
"I am my mother's daughter," answered
the child, with a grave dignity unusual in
one so: young—and a minute after she arose
and quietly left the room.
I sat watching her white robes flitting
through the long sluuly . walk opposite tay
window, and knew that the child brooded
over some dark sorrow, for her eyes were
filled with tears. •
Why was it, I questioned myself, that pain
ful thoughts took possession of me as I sat
there? , It seemed-as if I were sojourning in
an enchanted spot, and that tome horror was
I suddenly to break upon me.
At my side, nearly covering a beautiful
table of letter-wood, were several costly gift
books., I took them up carefully, for I have
a reverence for books andturning to the
fiy-leaf of a splendidly bound copy of Shaks
peare,read— -
To Diary Frances
husband, Henry E. F.
-A thrill of surprise and anguish ran from
vein to vein. My thoughts seemed paralyzed.
The truth had burst upon me with such sud
denness that the blood rushed with a shock
to my heart.
I knew Henry E. F—, had known him
intimately for years. He was a friend towards
whom all my sympathies had been drawn,
for he had seen such sorrow as makes the
heart grow old - before its time. His , wife,
whom be loved, had deserted him. She had
taken.witk her his only child. She had de
solated a household; and forgetting honor,
shame, everything that pertains to virtue and
to God, had fled' from the country with the
man whose arts had won her wanton love.
• How could I remain tinder this roof that
now seemed accursed? How meet the des
troyer of virtue—the fiend who had revelled
in such a conquest?
For a moment or two I strode up and down
the room uncertain what to do. The child
entered the apartment just then. How - my
heart bled for her. Sweet innocence I she
had limn made in some sense a partaker la
the consequences of this wickedness—a suf
ferer, and a victim, through one whom she
called by the holy name of mother. Did she
remember the injured father about whose
neck in the holy hours of the past her arms
had iclung so lovingly ? Alas t to cloud_a
child-life with bitter, heart -breaking memo
ries, never, never to be blotted out this side
of the gate of death!
God forgive me if my feelings of desper
ate, hard, unkind though ts t o wards the el.-
ring;.tookno Christian from my soul!
I could only think of the evil they had done,
not . what they might suffer through the tor.
toms of remorse. It watt some time before
the seducer came into the room where I still
sat with the child, determined to meet him
once more before I left the house--
01 how Enity how heart-stricken his ap•
pcaranccl Remorse Bat on his forehead—
looked out from his 9, es—:•polzo when Lc
was silent.
" Will you come to dinner?" lie asked.
I hesitated. Should I partake of his hospi
tality; the hospitality of one of those fiends
In human shape whose steps take hold on
hell? I knew his guilt; why delay to declare
it? , Why not at once lu burning words up
braid him for his villainy, and fice ns from a
pestilence his sin-cursed house? -The man
noticed my hesitation. He could not, of
course, interpret its cause. As he repeated
his request, the look of distress upon his face
excited a feeling of pity, which, for the mo
ment disarmed my resentment, and under the
influence of this feeling, almost unconsciously
I passed into the dining:room.
"I am sorry little Nellie's mamma" (I was
glad be did not dare to use the sacred name
of wife) "is notable to sit down with us" he
said. "It is many months since we have had
her presence at our meals. She is suffering
from the effects of slow fever induced by the
climate," he added gravely, as he motioned
me to a seat before him,
The table glittered with silver plate. Obe
dient servants brought, on the most costly
salvers, delicacies such as I bad never seen
But the skeleton sat at the feast!
I could not talk save in monosyllables.
My host ate hastily--almost carelessly—wait
ing upon me with many abrupt starts and
apologie s. " Wine cme. Ile drank. freely: Soon be
sent the little girl and the servants from the
room, and" seemed striving to nerve himself
to conversation.
" You are from -city," I believe, he
said, nervously." -
I answered an affirmative.
"Did you'ever know a gentleman there by
- the name—of—lL E. F--?"
" I knew him; sir," I said sternly, looking
the man 'steadily in the face, "and I knew
him also as a'ruined, heart-broken man." -
With an ejaculation of anguish he put his
handkerchief to his eyes. It would have seem
ed hypoctitical, but the suffering on his face
was unmistakeable.
" Perhaps you have suspected theh"—lie
began in a quivering voice.
NOV calmly, but with the words of an ac
cuser I told Win what I had seen, and thought
and felt.
" Sir," said he, in tones which I shall, never
forget, "if -r have sinned, God in lietwen
knows I have suffered; and if in F.'s bereave
ment he has cursed me, that Curse is fear

dying for months, and I have known' it. It

frenzy, rising and crossing the floor with
king, hasty strides. •Then, burying his face
in hig,liands, he exclaimed : " Too - late, too

pause, and' he -dontinued mare calmly. "No
human means can now restore nay poor com
panion. Her tdoral sensibilities become more
and more - acute as she fails in streng , th, so
that she reproaches herself constantly.'
A weary, mournful sigh broke from his lips,
tts - if his heart would break. .
"0 . ! if he kneW !"- - he exclaimed again, "if

"I will-go, then." • •

But now 1 0 pity Ivity !
The eyes only retained their lustre; they
were woefully sunken. The blazing fire kin
dled at the vitals, burned upon her sharpen
ed cheeks, burned more fiercely, more hotly
as she looked-upon my face. I could think
no more of anger—l Could only say to my
" 0 ! how sorry I am for you •
She knew, probably by her husband's
manner, that I was aware of their circum
Her first question was :
" Ara you going back to America?"
The hollow voice startled me. I seemed
to see an open sepulchre.
I told her that it was not my intention to
return at present.
"0! then, you will take my child back to
her father?" she'cried, the tears falling. "I
am dying, and she must go back to him I It
is the only reparation I can make—and little
enough, 6 little enough, for the hitter wrong
I have done them." -
"I hoped, sir, you might see him," she
added, a moment after, checking her sobs;
"I hoped you might tell him that his image
is before me from morning till night, as I
knew he must have looked when the first
shock came. 0, sir, tell him my story—

"Mary you Must control your feeling , ..,"
said my host, gently.
'"Let me talk while I may," was the an
swer. I have not seen a single hour of hap
piness. It was always to conic—always just
ahead—and here is what has come—the grave
is opening and I must - go to judgment. 0
how bitterly have I paid for my sin.l Forgive
me, 0 my God,, forgive!"
It vas a solemn hour, that which I spent
by that dying penitent. Prayer she listen

did, gave no outward sign. Remorse bad
worn away all her beauty, even more than
illness. She looked to the future with a
despairing kind of hope, and but feeble faith.

A. correspondent of a New York paper,
who went to Chicago to attend the late con
vention, gives the following as among the
first incidents of his arrival ;
Some delegations had arrived.
I spoke to one of the delegates from lowa.
"How is Grimes?" says I.
"Grimes is dead," says he.
Then I met a delegate from Maine and
asked hita if he had seen Fessenilen.
"Fessenden is dead." says he.
The next delegate I met was from Illinois,
so I asked him how Trumbull was gettin ,
, from her devoted
"Trumbull is dead," says he.
A. delegate from Missouri then carne
along and I spoke to him about Henderson.
"Henderson is dead," says lie.
The neat delegate I saw was film Kansas,
and I asked him if lie had seen
"Ross is dead," says he.
Then I went. up to a delegate croin Ten
nessee and I mentioned Fowler.
"Fowler is dead," says he.
A. delegate from West Virginia came in and
I inquired for Van Winkle.
"Van Winkle is dead," sacs he. •
• I was getting tired of this, so I asked the
next delegate that came in how the party
• was.
And-he said he thought the party was
dead too. •

his greatest incentive anti joy in working un

The secret, however, soon became an open
one, and finally was broken VI the young
lady's father. Ile heard the sad .news with
out apparent concern, but, in a few minutes,
set otr for the village, where be made dili
gent inquiry respecting the young carpenter,
who, he learned, was the only sou awl sup
port of is widow; and was, an intelligent,
capable and promising. young man. The
lather returned home, and, calling his daugh
ter to his room, asked her how the matter
stood between herself and the young elrpen.
ter. It was a critical moment for her, and
for a time her rears triuMplied over all her
other feelings, and she burst into tears. The
tears were followed by.a confession of an at
tachment which had grown stronger every
day, even' to the fear that it was doomed to a
cruel disappointment—for the object of it
was nothing but a poor mechanic. ,"But I
love him with all my heart, and would give
my life for him," said the honest girl.
"Does he reciprocate your affection ?'' asked
the Lather.
"That he does," replied the daughter, "but
he knows that you would never consent to
his paying his addresses to me, and he has
been very reserved about it. De talks of go
ing away, because he can't live here without'
seeing me , and - thinks you would not be wil
ling to have him visit the house."
The father sent for the young carpenter, ,
who cause to the room with the greatest trepi
dation. He suspected what was in the
wind, and, anticipating 'an iminediate.
Inisal, his heart was in his throat, when
the father said to him,,"Young man, how is
it that you have dared ti carry on a flirta
tion with my daughter without my con
sent ?"
"That is false, utterly h&c, sir," the
01lag man replied ; "your daughter eame,to
he house where I was at work, and 1 saw
her and loved her. 'could out keep my eyes
from looking at her. She. returned toy look
with interest and asked me questions. Al
most every day- she has been at the house,
and her coming makes it scent a heaven to
me. But I knew Lwas only a poor mechan
ic, with a mother on my hands, and that you
would not consent to my offering her any
particular attention. So . .' have kept away.
Fin going -off, sir, a-i Suva as the job is done,
for I cannot live without seeing her, and
would nut do anything dishonorable, or that
tier father would disapprove."
The young man turned his face towards
the window to hide a few stray tears which
came to his eves. The father looked steadi
ly at the secretary, as if it contained some
thing of unusual interest. After a not un
welcome silence he turned to the young man
and said :'"You have acted perfectly honor
able in this matter. You shall see my daugh-
ter all you please. I hear that yott.are a
worthy, industrious young man, and I prefer
such a one fir my son to any despicable
snob. I ant iorry 'your education has been
so neglected. But it is not too late to remedy
that matter. - pay your wages to your
mother, and send you to school for a year or
two. Mter yon get a good foundation laid,
I will take you into my, - business, and if you
bear yourself in a worthy manner, one of
these days my daughter shall be your-wife."
Our readers can imagine the scene and the
ijoy that frill wed this speech of a wise and
Rind father far better than we can now dc•
scribe them. The young man has just fin
ished a year's course' at school, where he has
made wonderful progress. The father seems ,
to be as proud cif Min as he well can be ; and
he has found that life in the new and
elegant mansion on the banks of the Mason,
with an accomplished daughter who cannot
sufficiently express her gratitude, and the ac
casional visits of a noble-minded young man
who is working his way up in the world, is
only a sweet foretaste of Elysium. If other
rich fathers would follow his example, there
would he fewer elopements and less misery
than at present, and a great many happier

houses, fences, &c., with a paint made tis'fol
lows, and found it nearly as good as ordinary
oil paint, and vastly cheaper. In fact the
cost is scarcely anything except the labor:
Take half a bushel of unslacked lime, slack
it with boiling water, cover it during the pro
cess co keep is to sieme. au,t add w it a peck
of clean salt, previously well dissolved in
warm water; three pounds of ground rice,
boiled to a thin paste, and stirred in boiling
hot ; half a pound of clean glue, which has
been previously dissolved by first soaking
it well, then hanging it over a slow fire in a
small kettle • within a large one filled with
water. Add five gallons of hot water to the
mixture, stir it well, and let it stand a few
days covered from the dirt. It should be put
on right hot; for this purpose, it can be kept
in a kettle on a portable furnace. it is said
that at one pint of this mixture will cover
a square yard upon the outside of a house if
properly applied.
Coloring matter may be put in and made
of any shade you like. Spanish brown stirred
in will make red or pink, more or less deep
according to the quantity. Finely pulverized
' common clay, well mixed with Spanish
brown before it is stirred into the mixture,
makes a tilde color. Lampblack in a moder
ate quantity makes a slate color, So. It is
difficult to firm a rule, because tastes aro
very different it would be best to try experi-
mums on it shingle and let it dry. We have
been told that green must nut be thised with
lime. The lime destroys the color, and the
color has an effect on the whitewash which
causes it to peel
When walls have been badly smoked, and
you wish to have them a clean white, It is
well to squeeze indigo plentifully throng!) a
bag into the water you use, before it is stirred
in the whole mixture,
Our friend says that thirty cents worth of
coloring matter _enough for the
half bushel of lime. Spanish brown and
yellow ochre cost three cents per pound.
Lampblack and prince's brown five cents per
pound.—Gehhc , ee Fd17714.1*.
Gen. Jackson and Gen. Grant.
General Grant has a sentinel marching
in front of his house night and day. When
his little boy of twelve years of age rides to
school every day, he is accompanied by two
orderlies in the unifbrm of the United States
army. In referring to this. a correspondent
of the Macon (Ga.) Telegraph relates the fol
lowing incident of General Jackson's last visit
to NOV Orleans:
"The fatigues of the day ended, the old
hero repaired with many of the citizens to
apartments prepared for him in that mag
nificent structure, the St. Louis llotel. The
captain of an Irish company detailed a stal
wart son of Erin as a sentinel, at the Gene
ral's door, There:he was walking his rounds,
when the General observed him, and turn
ing to General Lewis, asked :
"What does this mean ?"
"Only a sentinel at your door, General."
I shall ever remember that look, and the
exclamation 'My God r as he strode up to the
sentinel with a manner which was the Gene
ral's only :
'My good man,' said - he, `what are you do
ing at my :door, with a musket in your
hands ?'
'The captain placed me here as your guard,
"Am I not in the midst of the American
people Mn lin danger from these ?, Or is
this intended as an honor to me? If so, I
despise it Go home, sir, and get your
dinner," and turning to his guests, ho con
tinued: "Whenever au American citizen
by his public conduct renders a public guard
nceeA: try to his protection, beware a that
num !"
Black, writes the New York correspondent
of the Gazette, is not more celebrated for his
astuteness, ability and constitutional learn
ing than for a certain simplicity of character
and absent-mindedness regarding every-day
affairs Ile can scarcely be trusted to per
form the most ordinary duties of common
life, and his excellent wite in some particu
lars takes charge of him as if he were 36nd.
On one occasion he had to go to Pittsburgh
to take part in an important law case. Ills
wife prepared him for the journey, packed
his portmanteau, placing therein sit clean
shirts, and charging him to be sure to put
one on every morning. Upon his return, the
portmanteau was unpacked, but no shirts
were to be found. Mrs. Black hurried to her
liege lord for an explanation, but her liege
lord could give none. He was certain' he•
had, put on a clean shirt every day, but could
recollect nothing about the soiled ones. Bat
that night, when undressing, the mystery
was explained. The astute lawyer bad in
deed complied with his wife's directions, but
upon putting on a t lean shirt every morn
ing had forgotten to remove the soiled one.
The entire six missing shirts were on his
