" So you've determined not to- come and,
spend the. Christmas Vsl6. with us?"
"My dear old boy, if I do good-bye
to my chance of a first,i and therefore a long
farewell to my hope of 'a felloWship."
The first speaker was Walter Carew, heir
to one of the richest baronetcies in wealthy
Beeveshire, and gentleman commoner of St.
Guthlac's College, Oxford, on which fine
old foundation his friend Charlie Brandreth
was a scholar.
"'Well, then; at all events you'll come and'
stay somewhere handy, so that you can
spend yonr Christmas and New Year's Day
with us?".
" To have you come and chewy me off my
work every day?" said Brandreth.
" NO; 'pon honor I won't. There's a farm
of the governor's at Bishop's Climstolte, five
miles from the nearest station, and that's an
hour and a half from us; They're excellent
people, and will put you up capitally, and
for a moderate screw. Say yes, and I'll
write to old Dimsdale about it by this eve;
ning's post." '
"It is a tempting idea. Areyou sure
there is nothing about the r eality to keep a,
fellow from reading?"
" Not more than any other place on this ,
jolly sphere. You know I'm no judge. As
my old coach used to say, the only place
where I shouldhe likely to stick to reading„
would be Eddystone Lighthouse, and then l •
I should have to promise not to fish."
"Well, I confesk with all my anxiety forl
a class, I don't quit the notion of:
'Christmas Day in 0i ord and solitude,- so I
I'll say yes."
The upshot of thisieonversation was that'
the beginning of thel - Jhristmas• Vac.' found ,"-
Brandreth comfortaby settled at DoVecote-i
Farm, in the retired little village' of 'Bich-.;
op's Cliiiistoke. He found the Dimsdalee
very agreeable people, and rather superior
to his notion of farmer life. The family; l
consisted of old Dimsdale, an honest and'
energetic man, his wife, 'a very homely and:
easy-going body,:and Rose, their daughter,- f
a girl of about eighteen, and pretty enough-S
to deserve to be, what Brandretli sOon"dis
covered she was, the, belle Of Bishop's Ohm
Brandreth had been thrown on the world
an orphan at an early age, with no kith or
kin, save an old bachelor uncle, who was
his guardian until he became of age—an
event which had taken place a 'couple of
years before the date of this story. lie had
therefore never known womanly kindness
or attention; and the care and thought
which Rose bestowed on him as their visitor
came upon him with no less novelty than
'enjoyment. She, on the other hand, having
been accustomed only to the awkWard horn :
age of rustic admirers, Nras. charnied with
the relined and respectful attention .which
Brandreth natufally.paid to a woman.
It was hardly likely' that such a state of
feeling should remain at a fixed point,, and
it was scarcely-probable WO it would suffer
diminution. It naturally deepened and
strengthened. Brandretli, with a man's in
stinct of rivalry,-could not bear to see a girl
like Rose surrounded by such clowns ft 4 her
village suitors, and taking advantage of his
position as a visitor at her father's house, he
contrived on - all occasions tol monopolize
her, much to the chagrin of her rustic
swains, but greatly tb her satisfaction.
Poor, Rose! her guileless and unsophisti
cated nature saw no wrong, no danger, no
inequality in their love. How couldAe fail
to believe and return what she supposed to
be an honest and honorable passion? What
else could his attentions 'meta?
And now it was Christmas Eve, -and he
was about to start for Sir Ranulph Carew's.
to spend his Christmas. Poor girl, thobgh
the separation would only be for a day, it
seemed as if it was to be for ages. It wa.
her first experience of the bitters of love.
She stood in the hall, waiting to see him ,
ofr o ' with a sad heart, which sorely hindered
her in her appointed task—the decoration of
the old farm house with evergreens. _ '
At last Brandreth came down stairs fully
equipped , for the journey, which was likely
to prove h cold one, as the winter had be
gun to set in severely.
" Good-bye, Rosic! A merry Christmas
to you," said he cheerfully.
"And to yoti, too," said she, but in no
very merrytone.
"So you're doing the decorations, ch? 3
shall take the privilege of the season."
He caught up a bit of mistletoe,' and hold
ing it over her head bent down and kissed
It was the first time he had ever kissed
her, and it should have been pleasant, there
fore; but it was not. As he clrove'away to
ward the station he •*.called it again and
again, but with an uncomfortable feeling. a
self-reproachful dread.
Shall I tell you why? Because, when he
stooped down to kiss her, she had not turn
ed her head away, or tried to escape. She
had raised her face calmly and, innocently,
and met his" lips with hers. It was so sim
ply and trustfully done that there was noth
ing unmaidenly in the action. It shocked
him because it was a revelation. in that
kiss she had given him her heart. lie felt
he was a villain. He had won the poor
child's affection by false pretense; he had
blighted her happiness merely to gratify his
vanity; for, of course, as he kept repeating
to himself, there could be nothing between
them, their stations in life were so very dif
The line between the station at which he
entered the train and that near Sir Ra
nulph's seat ran close to the village of Bish
op's Climstoke, and as he was whirled rap•
idly by it and recognized many a familiar
spot, his heart grew sad to think what ,ecil
he had wrought in that quiet. hamlet, and
to the poor trusting girl who had given him
her heart,
" Before long, however, he found himself
at Sir Ranulph's hospitable mansion, where,
in the pleasure of meeting Walter and' in
the jollity of the season, , he soon forgot his
remorse, and dismissed the subject of his
cruelty from his mind.
It was, a thoroughly old-fashioned Christ
mas,' kept up in the regular old-fashioned
,style. When the Yule log, that was drawn
in by, n party of mummers, was laid on the
capacious hearth, and began to blaze, it was
not only the sap that'hissed. There were
big flakes of snow coming clown the wide
chimney, and they sputtered and steamed
as they fell on the hot log.
A week passed pleasantly enough, and
perhaps only too quickly. It required all
lirandreth's resolution to make up his mind
to tear himself away and get back to his
bCl9k6: - digou4t7. in doing so was not

on in "darkness and in silence.
His ignorance of the moor did what - the
villagers' intimate acquaintance with it fail
ed, to do; they searched on -and about the
different paths;, he went blindly on, now
plunging inginto holes, now fa ling over ridges.
At last the ground seemed to open under
him—he felt himself falling into He
'could scarcely smother a cry. But the sen

plunged into a water course. ,Rut as he
turned to scramble out tain, he l saw a
shred of gray cloth in the snow. He knew
it—it was Rose's cloak. - He threw himself
on his knees, and began madly • tearing the
snow away with 'his hands.

was not until he declared that he should.
terpret his refusal as a desire to, bring their
friendship to a close, that he got Brandreth
to promise to come. But even then he wo'd

Bo Brandreth made his arrangements for
the Journey. And then the recollection of
the same time lust year, and of the Dims
dales and dear old Bishop's Climstoke, came
bacli to him fresh and bright. In a gracious
mood he sat himself down and wrote to old
Dhnsdale, wishing hiM and his family the
compliments of the season. And then, just
as he was closing his letter, something came
over him, and he added
" I shall be able to utter the wish almost
within your hearing. for I am going down
by the evening mail on Christmas Eve to
spend - a short time at Sir Rantilph Carew's."
I oti May he sure t he letter was a pleasant
snrpri&e at _Dovecote Farm; for the simple.
minded old people never connected Charles
Brandreth w ith the sadness and gloom that
had come over Rose, that lied stolen the
color from her cheeks and the light irons,
her eyea, and that made her sigh and go
heavily like one weary of life. They only
thought of him as the preserver 'of Their
darling.; and they fancied the change in her
wiis due to the shock she had received when
she was lost in the snow.

Mrs. Dimsdale hehrtily joined in the wish:

did not notice the malicious grin with which
Black Dick stole out of the 'kitcben after

of Charles Brandreth's letter.

bu4,the stare we - e. bright in the frosty sky,
and the reflection from the thin sheet of

ed what little light there was,
The throb - and rattle of the train that
rushed so rapidly along, bearing him toward
Bishop's Climetoke, seemed to ftill into reg
ular rhp,hm, and his imagination, heated
by remorseful memories, seemed to supply
it with words-
.4uthless. traitor! ruthless traitor!"
The words rang continually in his ears.—
He could not shut them out by reading;
they wore like the sounds that repeat theta-
WI/ea with: such maddening monotony to
man,in delirium, ' He was .positively grate
fui when he'recog...nized by certain familiar
landmarks that he 'vas approaching . Blab
.op's Climstolte.' He -opened'- the window
and leaned out. Still the train hurried on.
Now he could see the tower of the church.;
he was -getting near,. the:.rillage; he would
,:jee the farm in a minute. -
•Ah! what was that? Some black object
moving down the side of the embankment
a little way ahead,.. The engine - driver must
have seen it, for hark! there is 'a warning
till of. a sudden the tone of the whistle is
changed; it becomes a shriek, as of, terror.
There follows a tremendous grinding of the
brakes hurriedly applied till the sparks - rush
from them in a stream. Then arise cries of
alarm; and then, over all, a crash—the train
heaves like x. - wounded snake; the carriages
seem to fall into :splinters:. A grinding,
Crushing • roar—the . bellowing of escaping
steatn—the hissing of water dung upon live
coals! All this compressed into a minute's
space; and this the , last thing of which
Charles Bran dretli-is conscious!
Those of the guards who are uninjured
set to work to learn how the accident arose,
and to-extricate the passengers. - They,find
the line has been blocked with several sleep
ers and uptorn rails, which-have thrown the
engine off the track:: - It has been overturn
ed in its fall. Stoker and driver have both
been thrown some distance, and lie dead or
insensible—it cannot be ascertained 'clearly
which just yet.
- But there's Some one under the engine,
for all that! They can hear faint moan
ing. Whoever it is, he's as good as dead—
*what with beihg crushed, and' burnt, and
Scalded, all at the sane time. They extri
cate him.
It is a young fellow, apparently a farm
laborer. It is promptly conjectured that he
is the - person who placed the obstruction on
the line; and when the question is put to
him hedoes not deny it, Just at that mo
ment they arc carrying past the' apparently
lifeless body of one whose dress seems to
indicate that heis a clergyman. A ghastly
red cut across the face lightens its pallor.
The bystanders acknowledge with a ,shud
derthe presence of death.
The wretched author of, the calamity,
grins a terrible grin, half of agony, half of'
"I be done for—but I ha' killed 'un! I
ha' killed 'un, for surel",
And with that he falls to writhing, and
dies like a - crushed- viper.
And just then a big, burly figure coines
pushing through the crowd.
" Mr.- Brandreth! Mr. Brandreth!' are you
hurt? 'Where are you. - sir? Have ye any
o' yee seen a clergy—"
And then . he catches sight of the dead
body, and all he can find breath to say is,
"Oh, my God! he is dead!"
But Charles Brandreth was not dead.—
" Better he had been," be thinks when, af
ter a long, lingering recovery froth the
worst, be learns from the doctor that he is
hopelessly disfigured, and that he will be a
deformed cripple for life!-
.r He shudders and turns away from a gen=
te hand that is laid on his shoulder—oh, so
softly! It does not put him to physical
pain, but it racks him with mental Aorture.
For there is the ghost Of poor Rose—the
specter now of the pretty girl he - knew—
waiting on him, tending him, nursing him,
patiently, devotedly, unwearyingly. Ipto
somehow be feels there is a barrier between
them. Not the cruel old barrier of pride
that he had built up. In his humiliation,
in the silent hours of waking, in the con
stant school of pain, he has learnt to see
clearly now. The barrier is none of his
raising. It is interposed between them b'
Rose. If he were the merest stranger, she
could not keep him more coldly at a dis
tance with her face emotionless as a mask,
and her demure " Yes ' sir," and "No, sir!"
He prays for death; but be feels that be
will live. And - .the thought of what life
means to him now is unendrable.
One day when he is, as heinpposes, alone,
he complains aloud, reproaching himself for
the past.
"I blighted her life, and mine is darken
ed! I killed the prettiness in her face, and
mine is made a horror. . I deserve it=and
yet it is sad to think of the doom the doc=
tor passes—a disfigured,, deformed cripple
for life!"
And then suddenly he feels two arms
around his neck, and a shower of kisses on
his forehead, and he hears Posies voice sob
bing: "My darling!—my darling! yes, I
dare to call you so now—my own! my own!
Dearer to me now than ever!—doubly dear,
for they will 71(it steal you from me now!"
"Merciful Heaven! what have I done to
deserve this?" he gasps.
And from that day he begins to - niend
There is little more to ndd, but that little
is. good.
Ranulph, disantisfied with the opinion
of the local surgeon, sends to town for the
first surgeon of the day, .who comes down
with his cheerful face and his noble gray
head—grown gray in the F service of Titter
ing humanity—and lie takes a brighter view
of the case, and a more correct one, which
is better still.
For, by the time. Clu Brandreth is
well enough to move abont again, and goes
to take the tat - college living for whibh, he
exchanges his fellowship, you would never
guess from hi straight, well-proportioned
figure, that he had ever been such a shat
tered wreck as he has been. There's JAst
the shadow of ft limp in his walk, and'there
is the white seam of a long scar on his'brow
—but you can only see it when you are very
near him.

Estimatez of Horace Greeley
Below we print portions of interesting
and able articles on lir. GrWey. The first,
from the Philadelphia _Yarn American, is,-
we believe, by a pen withwhich our read
ers have long:been familiar; the second,
from the New Fork Sun, was written by
Mr. Dana. who *as for many years an inti
mate friend of ..31r. Greeley and a co-worker
with him on the TiOune :
" Since 1854 no man has exercised so
great an influence in shaping and modifying
public Sentiment, as mgards political quo:
tions, as Horace Greeley. It -has been usual
to attribute this intiuence,to a 'commanding
intellect. This we believe to have been ,a
mistake. His intellect was - remarkable, ra
ther than commanding; verSalile, rather
than subtle- or profound: In resources it
seemed inexhaustible; but when the works
to which he bent all his energies are candid
ly examined, their Philosophy will be found
to he rather theoretical than experimental,
and their deductions rather from what he
felt and believed, than from what he saw
and knew. Ile saw the beginning and the
conclusion of things, but the intermediate
was to hira a sealed 'book. 'Thus Horace
Greeley was not a logician in any important
meaning of the term. The elaborate reas
oning processes observable in the Writings
and speeches 0 such men as Seward and
Calhoun were trotemployed by Mr. Greeley.
He Carried conviction by his terrible earn

" Horace Greeley was a man of sensitive
conscience- It was his misfortune to think
better of; some men and -worse of others
than they deserved. But that be was - ever
guilty of willful wrong in dealing with men
v: ill never be counted against him by any
candid man His perception of right and
wrong, -in the abstract, was remarkably
clear, and few men of so much ability have
ever been truer to their ideal than-he. But
when called to deal with the concrete he
stumbled and fell continually. -It was' this
inability to trace anything, front its premiss
through the intermediate to its conclusion
that gained him his reputation for inconsis
tency.. When the war broke -out no , man
sooner recognized the fact that the only ro4
to peace lay in subjugation. He passed to
the objective point with ease and certainty.
Hence, his cry—" On to Riclunond"—whiCih
recoiled upon him with such fearful force
and injustice after the Bull Run disnater;—

never ceased to bear the burden. It as a
characteristic mistake of the man to gard
himself as a cause, - whereita he was n lyam
instrument of a cause. But insti:tin tall
ties pertain to intermediate processes, of
which he was utterly ignorant. lil.is' theory
of resumption proceeded from this inability
to comprehend the intermediate. In this.
respect the character of Horace Greeley is
in strong contrast to that of Abraham Lin
coln. The latter was an ekperlmental phi-'
losopher. Mr. Greeley was a, theoretical
philosopher. Mr. Lincoln never, brany ac
cident,, moved in advance of the ,people.—
Mr. Greeley naturally, by mental character.
istic and temperament, kept in ' advance of
public sentiment, and sometimes maintain
ed a position 4a) fer in adVande that CommU-
Mention ceased between him and the'masses
he attempted to control. * * ; *
"In many respects he was an intellectual
marvel: As a journalist heliad no equal in
either hemisphere. - . Many 'of his 'botem-po
raries wrote with greater :profundity, but
none possessed his intuitive knowledge of ,
almost every known subject: There are
lawyers who become noted shitply because
of their intuitive perception of the true ap
plication of the principles of law. , They
are even superior to books in many respects.
Such are lawyers by nature., They aro "to
the manor born." It may be said of Mr.
Greeley that he was born an editor. He
had the journalistic temperament, aril this,
with a tenacious memory and remarkable
intuition, gave him such power as fekv men
have• enjoyed. Outside of• journalfsmi he
made a poor figure' indeed. His strong pOint
lay in pointing out the road to retort( in a
general way, and his function ended tthere.
When he attempted to conduct the bar he
failed utterly. Like a finger-post On a I di
viding highway, he could only indicate' di
rection. Of the road over which the trav
eler was to pass he knew nothing. • That
was the intermediate and, to him, thp un
known land. -_-

"In history Mr: Greeley will be recog
nized as the foremost find mostearnestjour
nalist of his time. As a
.politician, -as a
statesman, as a 'practical man, he - will not
be named. His errors will not be suftered
to cloud his admitted excellence as a, roan;
and if his failings 'shall be mentioned, he
will be classed rather with the sinned-against
than with the sinning. In ltis early dtiyn he
longed for nothing so much as that the
world should be the better for his life; and
in this he was eminently successful. Befell'
a victim to the selfishness and greed of men'
who are not - worthy to loOk upon his grave:"
"His attitude as a reformer altolained
for him the reputation of a humanitarian
and a. philanthropist; one'bent chiefly on as
suaging the woes of mankind; This dis
tinction he repeatedly disclaimed:- He was
not a philanthropist, he said; his'purpose
was only to establish justice and equal rights
among men. There was truth -in , this dis
claimer. His sensibilities were un ommon-
IY quick, but mere benevolence, o the pur
pose of simply doing good to of ere, did
not control him. Though he hate to wit
ness any scene of misery, he had o skill in
personally administering to dis ss: Be
sides, his ruling motives were of . 1 he'intel
lect more l than of the heart. He contended
against slavery, not because he cared par
ticularly for the negroes—on the contrary;
he rather disliked them—but because it was
contrary to that democratic , equality Which
was the fundsmental-princiPle of his politi-,
cal creed, and because he understood that
slavery was not only - an ari ocratic hut an'
intolerant element in our p litics; and that•
under its rule neither he no any other Nor
thern man could hope for referment, ex
cept as the reward of, servility and. self
abasement; and for this he was too upright
and too proud. So with his life-long advice
cacy of temperaece; it did not prOceed
from any sympathy with Men governed by
the passion for liqnor. Such men he
eel upon with disgust and contempt; a ' d in
the passibility of their reformdtion b ha
bitually disbelieved. Temperance i his
view was a branch of political economy, a
sort of public hygiene tending to promote
the general happiness find increase the
wealth of the community; and his Views
were similar in respect to every reform and
every philanthropic cause which he 'advo
