The last dying cadenec,Kfil a delicious,
dreamy waltz, across whose wierd notes
the soul of Beethoven had poured out its
magic sadness, were floating over the
ball-room of the fashionable Washington
hotel ; there was the stir and murmur of
separating couples, and the ill suppressed
yawns of weary " wall flowers" that fol
lowed in the wake or every brilliant waltz.
Kate Elwyn stood in the recess of the
window, playing carelessly with the fa
ded jessamines ;old tuberoses of her ho
quet, while her blur, lovely eye, wandered
anxiously from one place to another, evi
dently in quest of sonic familiar counte
nance, which they could not discover.
There were few wore beau tifu.l fhees
than her own, even in that festive'crowd,
where half the belles in the Union had
brought their diamonds and bright eyes
to dazzle the grave politicians and the
law-makers of the land. Bather beneath
the medium size, with the fragile delicacy
of a fairy, her complexion had the trans
parent waxen bloom that you look for
only in children, while her heavy bands
of golden kalr lay over her somewhat low
forehead in rippling waves of amber.—
Very dark blue eyes, translucent as u Bali
phiro of the first water, and a little crim
son mouth, curved like Cupid's bow, gave
additional piquancy to her thee, and al
together she was as perfecta specimen of
the radiant blonde as one often sees, out
of a picture gallery, or a novel.
Suddenly her choLks blossomed into
roses, and her whole countenance bright
ened as a tall and rather elegant looking
gentleman languidly sauntered toward
" Charley, I thought you were never
coming !"
" I've only been down to_the supper

sorry you have missed me. Anything I
can do for you 7'•
" get my shawl and fan and
we'll go - upienirs. It's after one o'oloell
and I am completely tired out."
" Couldn't, my dear," said Mr. Elwyn,
breaking a moss rose from his wife's bou
quet, and fastening it jauntingly into his.
coat. "I'm. engaged for three waltzes
and a'quadrille. Mimi Raymond would
never forgive me for deserting her."
Kate's lip curled haughtily, and a deep
er Bliaile of crimson stole into her °heels,
"Jealous, eh P' laughed her husbang )

Well, perhaps it would have done hint
good, perhaps not. It is not always best
to lc' a man know the full extent of his
power over that miserable little captive,
his wife— it is astonishing how much the'
sex delights in tormenting his victim.—
There is one blessed avenue of relief al
ways open to womankind, however—a
good cry No wonder that Kate Elwyn
felt better when she wiped away the show
er of tears and brushed back lovely rip
pling, tresses from her fevered fin•ehead.
" W hat, shall I do: " '
she murmured to
herself, deluging or handket thief with
lose water, and trying vainly to cool her
burning eyes; •' what ought I to do? Oh,
I wish I had never crone away from home
—it's a judgment on me, for leaving my
dear little babes. in the hands of euld hire
lings I was so happy before I ever
thought of thi:, hollow, deceitful whirl

he burst fitto fresh floods of tears, as
she remeniberid her husband's last words.
"It was cruel of him to speak in that
cold, sneering way to ine," she sobbed.—
"Have 1 lost all the spells he used to tell
we I possessed ! If he only knew how thes
things hurt me, 1 am sure he would treat
we in a different manner."
She sunk involuntarily back, as if some
rude hand had struck her, as Miss Ray
mond's clear, melodious laugh suddenly
floated up audibly through the closed door
of her room. And then she set her com
pressed lips together, and a new look came
into the liquid depth of her wet blue eyes.
The gilded minute hand of the carved
Parisian clock on the mantle had travel
ed nearly twice .around the circlet of en
ameled figures before Kato Elwyn lifted
her gaze from the bunches of velvet roses
in the carpet. What was she pondering

And Aurora Raymond sp - rang lightly
fr&ll3 the carriage step, one tiny gloved
hand resting on Mr. Elwyn's arm, the
other holding up thd folds of her violet
velvet mantle. Ile touched his hat, gal

all smiles and dimples.

said to himself consultin , his gold watch
" I'll run up and sce—Tioor little thing."
He sprang up the stairs, two steps nt
a time, and burst into his wife's room.
" Put your bonnet on, puss, and we'll

No, she was nut there—neither was her

The Value of a Bit of Knowledge.
In the course of our miscellaneous read
ing, we came across the following good
story, which illustrates the value of a bit
of practical information, when applied at
the right time:
In the Plaza before St Peter's at Borne
stands the most beautiful obelisk in' the
world. It was brought from the circus
of Nero where it had lain buried for many
ages. It was one entire piece of Egyptian
marble, 72 feet high, 12 feet square at
the base, and 8 feet square 4t the top, and
is computed to weigh about 470 tons,
and .is supposed to bo 3,000 years old.
Much engineering skill was required to
remove and erect this piece of art ;and
the celehrafed architect, Dotnincio Pen
tane was selected and engaged by Pope
Sextufl e,arry..out_the.operationz..A_
pedestal, 30 feet high, was built for its
,reception, and the obelisk brought-to its,'.
base. Many were the ingenious contri
vances preparegifor the raising of it to
its-last resting plebe, all of which excited
the deepest' interest among the 'people
At lerigth everything was in readiness,

A great multitude assembled to wit
ness the ceremony , and the Pope afraid
that the clamor of the people might dis
tract, the all cation of the architect., issued
an edict containing regtations to he kept,
and imposing the severest penalties on
any one who should during the lifting of
the gigantic stone utter a single word.
Amidst suppressed excitement of feelings
and breathless silence, the splendid mon
ument was gradually raised to within a
few inches of the top of the pedestal,
when its upward moti n ceaf•icil ;1t hung
suspended. and could not be got further,
the tackle was too slack, and there seemed
• to be no other way than to undo the great
work already accomplished. The annoy
ed architect, in his perplexity, hardly
knew how to act, while the silent people
were anxiously watching every motion of
his features to discover how the problem
would b 2 solved.
In the crowd was an old British sailor.
Ile saw the difficulty and how to over
come it, and with stentorian lungs he
shouted, "Wet the ropes l" The vigilant
police pounced on the culprit and lodged
him in prsion : the architect caught the
magic words, lie put the proposition in
force, and the cheers of the people pro
claimed the success of their great under
taking. Next day the British criminal
was solemnly arraigned belhre, his Ifoli•

Visit of President Lincoln.
Among the memorable events el the
week was the visit of Pre•ident Ling nin
to the city of Richmond lie had been
tarrying at City Point. holding daily con
sultitions with (;eneral ()rant. visiting
the army and time iron clads at Aiken': ,
I,anding,—thug avoiding the swarm o
place-hunters that darkened the doors of
the executive mansion. •
On Tuesday noon a lug-boat belonging
to the navy was seen steaming up the
Junes regardless of torpedoes and nh•
structions A mile below (he city, where
the water becomes shoal, President Lin
coln, accompanied by Admiral Porter,
Captain' Adams of the navy, Captain
Penrose of the army, and Lieutenant
Clemmens of the Signal Corps, put off
from the tug in a launch manned by
twtive sailors, whose long, steady oar
strokes quickly carried the party to the
landing-place,--a square above Libby.
Thorn way no committee of reception,
no guard or hoo",, no grand di.-Tlay of
troop, no assemlding or an eager multi
tude to welcome
lie entered the city unheralded ; six
sailors, armed with carbines, stepped
upon the shore, followed by the Presi
dent, who held his little son by the hand,
and Admiral Porter; the officers followed
and six more sailors brought up the rear.
The, writer of this article was there upon
the spot, and, joining the party, became
an observer of the memorable event.
There were forty or fifty freedmen,
who had been sole possessors of them
selves for twenty-four hours, at work on
floating timber, under the direction of a
Lieutenant. Somehow they obtained the
information that the man who was head
and shoulders taller than all others around
him, with features large and irregular,
with a mild eye and pleasant countenance,
was President Lincoln.
" God bless you, Salt" said one taking
off his cap and bowing very low.
" llurrah I hurrah President Lin
k= hab come I" was the shout which
rang through the street.
The Lieutenant found himself with
out a command. What cared those freed
men, fresh from the house of bondage,'
for floating timber or military commands
Their deliverer had come t —he who, next
to the Lord Jesus, Was their best friend!
It was not an hurrah that they gave, but
a wild, jubilant cry of inexpressible joy.
They gathered round the President,
ran ahead, hovered upon the flanks of the
littlo 'company, and hung like a dark
oloud upon the rear. Men, women, and
children joined the constantly increasing
-throng—They- r oma—from --all-the -by--
stroets, running in breathless baste,
shourfrig and:hallooing and dancing with
delight. The men throw up their bats,'
the women waved their- bonnets and
handkerchiefs, clapped their hands, and
sang, "Glory to God I glory I glory I glory 1"
—rendering all the praise to god, who

had heard their wailings in the past, their
moanin!rs for wives, husbands, children,
and friends sold out of their sight, had
given them freedom, and, after long years
of waitin g , had permitted them thus un
expectedly to behold the face of their
great benefactor.
" I thank you, dear Jesus, teat. I be
hold President Link= !" 'Was the ex
clamation of a woman who stood upon
the threshold of her humble home, and
with streaming eyes and clasped hands
gave thanks aloud to the Saviour of men.
Another, more demonstrative, in her
joy, was jumping and striking her hands
with all her might, crying,—'' Bless de
Lord ! Bless de Lord ! Bless de Lord !"
as if there could be no end of her thanks
The air rang with a tumultous chorus
of voices. The street. became almost im
passable on recount of the increasing mul
titude. Soldiers were summoned to clear
the way: how strange the event ! The
President of the Dolled States—he who
had peen hated, despised, maligned above
all other men living, to whom the vilest
epithets had been applied by the people
of Richmond—was walking their streets,
receiving thanksgivings, blessings, and
fromthousands who hailed him
as the ally of the Messiah ! How hitter
the reflections of that moment to some
ho beheld him !—memory running back
perhaps, to that day in May, Mil, when
Jelfetson Davis, their President, en
tered the city—the pageant of that hour,
his speech, his promise to smite the smi

said an old negro, removing his hat, and
bowing with tears of joy rolling down his
cheeks. The President removed his own
hat and bowed in silence; but it was a bow
which upset the lurms, laws, customs, and
ceremonies of centuries. It was a deat,h
shock to chivalry, and a mortal wound to
caste. Recognize a nigger ! Faugh ! A
woman in an adjoining house beheld it, and

The Superstition of Sailors
All sailors, it is notorious, are supersti
tious; partly, I suppose, from looking out
so much upon the wilderness of waves,
empty of all human life; for mighty
solitudes are generally fear haunted and
fear-peopled ; such, for instance, 'as the
solitudes of forests, where, in the absence
of human forms and of ordinary human
sounds, are discerned forms more dusky
and vague, nut referred by the eye to
ally known type, and sounds imperfectly
intelligible. And, therefore, are all Ger

amidst its ravings, with what seem innu
merable human voices, such voices, are
as ominous, as what were heard by Ku
bla Khan—" ancestral voices prophesy
ing war :" oftentimes laughter mixes,
from a distance, (seeming to come also
from distant times, as well as distant
places) with the uproar of waters ; add
doubtless shapes of fear, or shapes of
beauty not less awful, are at times seen
upon the waves V fhe diseased eye of
the sailor, in other cases beside the some
what rare one of calenture. This vast
solitude of the sea being taken, therefore,
as one condition of' the superstitious fear
found so commonly among sailors, a se
cond may be the perilous insecurity of
their own lives, or (if the lives of sailors,
after all, by means of' large immunities
from danger in other shapes are not so
insecure as is supposed, though, by the
way, it is enough for this result that to
themselves they seem so) yet at all events
he insecurity of the ships in which they

'fiance seems absolute, there the temp

which must often possess those who are

Tice Kindness of Mr. Lincoln
The following incident, clipped from
an exchange, illustrates the kindness of
heart and the tenderness of our late Pres
ident. In November last, a small, deli
cate boy patiently waited with the crowd
which hail gathered in the room of the
Presidenc.—lle was noticed by Mr. Lin
coln, who said, "Come here, my boy, and
tell me what you want." The boy, tremb
ling and abashed, stepped forward and
placed his hand upon the arm of the chair
in which the President was seated, and
said :
"Mr. ]'resident, I have bee❑ a drum
wer in a regiment for two years, and my
Col. got angry with we and turned me
off; I was taken sick, and have been a
long time in the hospital. This is the
first day I have been out I came to see
if you cannot du something for me."
The President looked kindly and ten
derly at him, and asked him where he
lived. Ile replied that he had no home.
"Where is your father ?" said the
"lie died in the army," answered the
"Where is your mother ?"
"My mother is dead also, I. have no fa
ther, no mother, no brother, sisters," and
bursting into tears, the boy said, "and no
friends Nobody cares for me."
The scene was very affecting. Mr.
Lincoln's eyes filling with tears, ho said
to him
"Can't yen sell newspapers."
"No," said the boy, "I am too weak,
and the surgeon of the hospital told me I
must leave; and I have no money, and
no friends, and no plane to go to."
The scene was indescribably tender
and affectionate, and the President imme
diately drew from his drawer a card, on
which he wrote his wiffhes, that the offi•
cars should care4in his own affectionate
language) "for this poor boy."
When the card was handed to the drum
mer boy, a smile lit up his face, all wet
with tears, and he had at least one good
and true friend in Abraham Lincoln.
