was just sorting the mail, handed nic

with capitals like au engraver's on the
cleart.d and thiekest \vhite paper,
sealed in gold mixed wax, with ilei.ices

having a character of its own, as every
letter has, suggeting the idea of some
very grand personage indeed a , the wri
ter 1 forgave the red-headed Charley
the looks of admiring curiosity with which
lie eyed the envelope as he transf,:rred
it to we slowly and with obvious reluc
tance, even v‘mturimr to ol.w.erve afterwards
encouraied by my delay. " Remarkable
hand-writing that sir. Seldom see any
thing so handsome come to this office. Such
exquisite upstrokes; look like engraving;
we were noticing it. as you corns in."
Some correspondent of my wife's 1-
returned. slipping the object of his ad
nairatiou into toy pocket, uftei a short
survey of the superscription, which indeed
bore that honored name. " under care" of
my own, and seeming it a anurga bunch
of newspapers and plebian yeltow envel
apes, went home to read my own share
of the mail matter.
Dr. hiskdale overtook me, with his
rapid strides, before I had gone half way
down the street--a handsome silent man
of eight or nine and twenty, grave :yid
reserved beyond his age, and with lines
of pain more ,than age about his mouth
and on his broad brows. There was no
one in Ashbrook whom I respected so
much, or of whom I knew so little —of
the east, nothing; of the present, only
what he chose to give us of , his delight
ful companionship. Though young, he
was wonderfully learned ; had travelled
much and had seen a great deal ; and
when he could be induced to speak of
himself his language was better than
poem orstory—vivid, descriptive, fascinat
ing, picturesque. Why, with his educa
tion and talents, ho had chosen to bury
himself in the obscurity of our pretty
village was a mystery we could not explain
- any more than the perpetual gloom — arid
sadness that surrounded him ; but thank
ful for the good the gods hnd provided
us in the society, of one so superior, we
had assiduously cultivated his friendship
and either the sweet voice of a frolicsome
baby or my wife's „cordial kindness to the
lonely, solitary man, who was elsewhere
so indifferent and absorbed, had wade
him an intimate and frequent visitor,
whose coining was welcomed, and whose
presence was desired by all. " 1 was go
ing down to make a call upon Johnny,"
he said as he
,joined we ;- " Mrs. Single
ton seems to by anxious about his teeth."
"1 lfelteVe she is, though I.must con
fess I cam see little" reason for' it. The

gate of Ashniont cottage, and p a s s ing
under the green archway of the hedge
we ascended a gentle,' glassy slope by a
little white graveled path, leading, through
a wilderness of choice shrubbery, my spe
cial pride. With no inure pauses than
are necessary to enable a rapid horticutt
uralist to display his latest treasures, we
reached the pretty porch, and entering
the house, sent up a roes , age to my wife
from the little breakfast parlor, where we
awaited her, sipping our wine :nod glanc

had relieved my pockets by pouring them
on the table.

pleased to recognize his medical friend
graciously, and difficulty in go

ing hi.a ruse-tint lips forcible opened and
his budding teeth tampered with hy any
of the persons present. Fearful of a
squall at this stage of the examin.ttion, I
hastily stuffed a handful of unopenel let-
tors into his little fist to divert his at
ten Lion from the conspiracy against his
dignity, and had the satisfaction of see
ing the trick successful. The dental ques
tion was sett led and Master Johnny restor-
ed to his mother and his ruffled plumes
smoothed by her magical flattery before
I noticed that (he youm , ! doctor WaH dead
ly pale, and tic hand in n•hich lie had
lifted the baby's plaything,,, the crumpled
letters, was shaking vii leanly as he laid
them on the table. Ile looked at us a
moment with a 8 trange expression of in
quiring emotion ; his lips opened as ill to
speak, but he held them resolutely dumb,
and moved towards the open window.—
" What is the matter?" we simultaneous
ly exclaimed.
" Nothing," he answered, with an. ef
fort—" I Want ,a little air; I believe I am
not quite well."
I sprang to let down another sash, but
he htid turned back to the table, and tak
ing his cap from it with a few painful
words of apology, was hurrying down the
gravel walk' through the garden.

meeting me as I returned breathless from
a vain pursuit, with his gloves in my
"I can't imagine my dear Carrie; fit
tigue and want of sleep, must have driven
him crazy. He is nearly worn out with
overwork, and I dare say ho is on the
verge-of a serious illness. He ought to
have somebody to look after him and
keep him from throwing his life away
under a mistaken sense of duty towards
'indifferent and unworthy people, who
will never thank him for the sacrifice.—
Ohe's first duty is for one's self in such
cases, but he can never be brought to per
ceive that, unless some one who loves him
better than he eves himself can teach
him to care for his life for her sake. I
wish he might marry turd have a home,
but I fancy from-something lie said it can
" Poor fellow !" said she . , thoughtfully
considering the subject, "I suppose there
is no one here good enough for him. I
know of none elsewhere that are, for that
niattor, oscepting my Princess, as you.
used to call her, bonnie Margaret Milburn,
but they will never meet." . „
Alia:l I.:thought that intimacy had
died out."
" Tt has not," she returned, her face
and neck covered with a warm flush of
indignation. " Because we do not keep
up an incessant correspondence, like two
school girls, and scribble out our feelings
upon paper as you men no, you think we
have forgot ton each other, and that, our
friendship is past. You arc mistaken
When any grief or great joy comes to her,
Maggie will bring it to me sure of my
sympathy—when 1 am in trouble, or need
her support, she will give it; meanwhile
we rest secure in possessing each other's
love and knowin: , each other's hearts."
" A very happy arritngement,"
laughed (hopping the subject, for Cando
was always very tenderly sensitive oty the
matter of this attach went--a first love
that had preceded even wine, and still
claimed seniority, if not monopoly, in her
constant breast. Jealous of any ridiule

obliged to make all manner of humble
confessions in favor of the a b sen t i,1 0 ;,
on whose integrity my words had cast a
slur. She hardly heard ate, though, and
I was settling to my papers again, when
with a radiant face she suddenly stooped,
and snatching from the table one or the
letters that had served to pacify 'Johnny,
waved it about her head with many ex

help and advise me, for you only know
how hard -it is for me to conquer my be
setting sin of pride. I have deserved
what I suffer, and would be content to
take even more could I but take upon
myself all the consequences of my faults,
and bear the burden alone. I have been
cruel, wicked, ungrateful—false to every
ideal of worth and womanhood we had,
and yet even wdi.e it in my power, which
it has long ceased to be, to make repara

not bend my stiff spiritro ettk forgiveness.
Iteed pity, and love, and sympatty, such
as you alone can give; and in the hope
that your kindness will cheer and comfort
me, and your gentleness teach me humil

forget my sorrw in your sweet domestic
peace, and consent for a short time to
receive me into the happy home you de

Your friend,

thought, could the fair " Princess" find
- in the plain and simple appointments of
the place appropriated to her; but Carrie
vowed with energy that she had never
known any-one who cared less for luxu
ries, or was more absolutely indifferent on
the subject of her surroundings. Her
" pride," then, the beast with seven
heads and ten horns, of which I have
heard so much. did not subsist upon the
outward display and grandeur belonging
to her position. I was glad to believe
this,and when she came, her manner fully
confirmed it.

to join.
Miss Milburn had changed very little
since I remembered her as bridesmaid at
our wedding. Her tall, stately figure
showed most majestic in its de , :ant Morn

arranged in broad braids on either side

haps lost a shade of their rich bloom ; but
her brow still kept its haughty curve, her
lips their disdainful droop, her eyes their

the pride that distinguished all of tier

one genoration to another. She looked

again, in tones stern and so determined
that Carrie hesitated no longer, but tak

the wanderings of my erratic friend.
Either the stimulous of conventional
self control that had formerly sustained
her was gone, or some new element of
unhappiness had been introduced into
her life since coming to us, for she changed
greatly from the night of her arrival.—
She clung closely to the society of Carrie
and her baby, and when the pleasure was
withdrawn, for ever so short a time, sank
into a state of moody apathy, which puz
zled and astonished Me. Her manner
too : was subjected to strong alterations,
which we.would not explain Or prevent.
In the morning she was gay, eager, bril
liant, her cheeks glowing, her, her eyes
lightning with soft excitement, .which
deepened to feverish expectancy and fit
ful restlessness as the day wore on ; when
night fell and evening slowly advanced
the wistful softness feded out of her face,
the hopeful light front her eyes, and she
hardened to her old cold, haughty self
again. Meantime she grew thinner and
paler; she changed and waned every day
and had the life we lived been in the
wild e st whirl of dissipation, as it was the
quiet embodiment of rural peace, she
could not. have wasted and worn more
rapidly in the conflict of its fietee excite
ments than in the fever of her own strange
and varying moods. " You remind me
of tlarrngna in \ l i the mooted grange,'"
said Carrie to her \ gaily one day, as she
stood in her habitual place at the window,

over the sunny prospects—" You are al

For Abraham Lincoln ono cry of univer
sal regret will be raised all over the civilized
earth. We do not believe that even the
fiercest partisans of the Confederacy in this
country will entertain any sentiment nt such
a time but one of grief and horror. To us.
Abraham Lincoln has always seemed thc fin
est character proolaced by the American war
on either side of the, struggle. He was great,
not merely by the force of genius—and only
the ,word-genius will describe the power of
intellect by which he guided himself and his
country through such a crisis—but by the
simple, natural strength and grandeur of hi„ , r
character. Telloyrand once said of a great
American Statesman that without eXperionce
he "divined" his way through any crisis.
Mr. Lincoln thus-divined his way, through
the perilous, oxhaustingiiild unprecedented
difficulties which might well have broken
the strength and blinded, the prescience of
the best,trained_professional statesmen._ He
seemed to arrive by instinct—by the instinct
of a noble,
_unselfish, and manly nature—at
the very ends' which the highost of political
genius, -the longest of political experience,
could have done no more than reach. He
bore himself fearlessly in danger, calmly in
diffloultY; modestly in success: The 'world
was at last beginning to know bow good,

was. It had long, indeed, learned that he

summon the elderly humbug.
Fortunately for us hie numerous en
gagements were detaining him some
where, and he was not to be found at his
office ; so, thankful at having kept my
word at so little cost, I was retracing my
steps, resolving to do without medical as.
sistance and try seine simple remedies for
fever, when I suddenly came hard against
somebody rushing round the corner. It
was Eskdale, just come from the cars,
hurried, aliitated breathlessly eager, look

tried for his life, and like nothing else
that I can think of, unless an excited

I had not broken my promise by inviting

that he should conic without it was not
in the least my business or my doing.—
Howe faint sense of wonderment might
have dawned upon my mind, that he should
be speeding to meet nie in this enthusias
tic manner; but the varied vicissitudes of

a state of genteel languor, andf strode

"Certainly not," I rejoined. quite curl

My wife met us at the door with her

with weeping. At the sight of the doc

but glanced reproachfully at me. "You
promised her—oh. John !"
"I didn't brinp.him " said I, resolving
to be fire from accountability td either
maniac—' I met him on the street."
"I was coining here,' Mrs. Sindeton.-
began Eskdale, to whom Johnny imme
diately offered the gild vinagee; belong
ing to Miss Milburn, that had been given
him to play with, and the aid of which I
think our friend really needed, so pale
had he become. Without a word more,
he tuned to go up stairs, and Carrie.see
ing his intention, hurried up before him,
I following, to receive my share of the
brim e.
'Pile door of the dim, perfumed cham
ber was opened, and my wife, ushering
in her guest, tremulously commenced the
task of introduction. "Miss I‘lilbnrn,

She was interrupted. The two who
we thought strangek's had cried to each
other after a breathless pause, "Henry!"
—"Margaret !" And Dr. Eskdale had
taken the little hot hand that hung so
languidly over the arm of the great chair
a moment before, and Margaret had bent
her stately head upon his shoulders, where
she was weeping hot tears of bitter repen
tance from her very heart.
And that was the end of Miss Milburn's

From the London Glob°, April 27.
It is ton soon to anticipate the depth and
breadth of this great calamity to America
and Europe. Mr. Lincoln had come nobly
through a great ordeal. He had extorted
the approval even of his opponents, at least
on this side of the water. They had conic
to admire, reluctantly, his firmness, honesty,
fairness and sagacity. He had tried to do,
and he had done, what he considered to be
his duty with magnanimity. Hu had never
culled for vengeance upon any . one. In his
dealings with foreign countries, and in his
expressions with regard to them, he had come
to be remarkable, because, among American
Presidents, he showed a justness of view and
ono, which was not common. In tho hour
then the cause ho had labored for was about
triumph, and peace once more prevail over
1 torn and bleeding continent, he was shot

whose wife, Miss Charlotte Wickham,

Southern service. William Henry was
