After that Edith and Mr. Jenkins

But by-and-by, When one Of 'he'e city

and went off riding with, Ludlow. On

"Mr. Jenkins, the gentleman asked

with provoking coolness. " I was not
aware that any gentleman had address

"The insolent puppy,!" exclaimed
Ludlow ;-+" but I will not bandy words

and he dismounted and opened the gatO

before Edith had been wishing for smile,.
and now she felt sure they were for het.

"'Brilliant aren't they?" said the Im

and gazing at them admiringly. "

Then she called the dog and went
singing into the garden, and Jenkins
sauntered off down the road in the • di
reetion of Mary Devon's cottage.
That afternoon Fitz Ludlow appear
ed, and the horses were brought out for
a ride. Jenkins took Fairy, Edith''s
pony, by the bit, and turned her head
around so that he could look •into, her
face. Edith was just gatheriiig up her
skirts to mount.
"You had better not ride her, Miss
Aitis`worth," said he ; . "She is natur
.olk.vielous, and to-day,she is in a very
bad humor. litiok at her eyes I"
." Thank you for your kindness, Mr.
Jenkins," Edith said, haughtily ; " I
am not afraid of a hrse. Come, Mr.
Ludlow, let us be off." .
Jenkins released the bit, shouldered
his rake, and went off•toward the rye
field, whistling, "Auld Robin Gray."
Edith was cross,l and answered all
Mr. Ludlow's attempts at conversation
tartly. She felt as it she did not want
to be spoken to. She whipped Fairy,
and got the beast into a nearly unman
ageable conditioh. When they turned
to go back liome;, Edith insisted on go
ing the Pond road. It was a shorter
cut, but considered somewhat danger
ous on account of the steep hills, and
the half mile of cliffs overhanging the
water, and across which the road ran.'
' Of course, she had her way, and they
dashed along, Fairy at the _top of her
speed, and Ludlow keeping - up as well
as he could. Just - before-they reached
the most perilous descent on the road,
a huge bird" swooped dam from the
trees which bordered the path directly
in front of Edith's horse. The animal
started and plunged forward. Edith
was a good horse-woman, and did not
lose her presence of mind, but she, re
alized her danger. Her slight strength
was a small check to that' headlong
speed ; and half way down the hill the
road curved shaiply amid a group of
jagged rocks; and she had little hope
that she could save herself She never
thought of asking Fitz Ludlow. for
help ; but she uttered an inward cry to
heaven for preservation.
And simultaneously Jenkins sprang
out of the copsewood just ahead of her,
and seizing Fairy by the bridle, was
borne along for a fewyards before he
brought - the beast to a dead halt.
ai l ,
" I came across this 1 ay to go home,"
he said, quietly ; "an thinking you
were riding a little t fast for safety ;
I took the liberty of opping you."
" Oh! I thank yon " she begun,
her face glowing with feeling, but Jenk
ins cut her short in that hateful way of
"Oh ! it's'of no consequence cit all,
thank you—not the slightest ;" and
gathering up his rake, and his striped
frock, he climbed the fence and was
lost to view.
Edith decided that he was a brute,
and made a resolve never to speak to
him again. And so when it occurred
that" M.r. Jenkins ventured any remark
to her; she was talking to the kitten, ca
the chickens,:and did not hear him.
, In September there was a great storm
— the.equinoelial ; nurse Downing said
such a storm had not been known for
years. It rained and rained, and- all
the brooks swelled to rivers, and the
river itself becotne a wild torrent,
spreading ruin and desolation all over
the lowlands.
Edith was beside herself to g down
to the old mill, which stood on t e same
side of the river as the hour . She
wanted to see the water boil over the
great rocks on the other shore; but Mr.
Downing refused to permit her, and
Jenkins looked up from his plate, at
breakfast, when she urged her plea, and
remarked : .
"It is dangerous to attempt such a
thing, Miss Ainsworth. Herm Brook
is quite a river- now, and you know that
must first be crossed to get to the mill,
and there is only a single piece of tim
ber across it. It would require a steady
head to walk that now, I'm thinking."
Edith made no reply, but Jenkins's
remarks: decided her. She would go
now, at any cost. She was a willful
littleithing, you see, and fond of hav
ing herown way. So, before the fami
ly had finished breakfast, she threw a
shawl - over her head, and flaw down the
path to Herm Brook. The meadows
were very wet, and Edith's dainty gait
ers, were soaked through, but she
would not be deterred by a pair of wet
feet—not she.
The brook was a roaring flood, and
the frail "string-piece" trembled .with
every dash of the water. But Edith
had a steady head ; and 'with a light
step she crossed, it; clambered up the
rough bank, and reached the mill.
The scene was wild and fearful en
ough to merit the breathless admiration
which pervaded the spirit of Edith
Ainsworth. She clasped her hands and
gazed silently out at the mad host df
waters, which tumbled against the old
mill,. making it quiver and tremble in
every ancient timber, and then' went
breaking into Yellow stviirls of foam
over the-sharp rocks beloW.
Suddenly she felt a severe shock,and
turning quickly from the window w here
she had bee[?
of she saw that'
the east Wall the mill had been torn
away and was • being• borne rapidly
down the . stream. And, even as she
gazed ) she became conscious that the
whole mill was being Swept from its
foundations. She started forward to
Make-her escape, but it was too late.—
Already the structure was moving
down stream, for she saw that the great
hemlock-tree which - had'stood close by
the west door of the mill, was• yards
away !, • . •
And as she looked back; she saw just.
inthe wake of •the.mill,'half hidden in
the clouds of foam-and spray, a human
face ! ,The tossing; brown hair•the
White forehead-she:could not be mis
taken ! She understood tit at once.—
Jenkins hadfollowed her to the mill,
had reached the platform just as, it was
swept away, anti now be was at , the
Mercy of the foaming'floocl.
She ran back to the extreme edge of
her confined limits and flung out her
silken scarf across the water.
She shouted to him so hoarsely that
she hardly knew her own voice.
"Catch hold of the scarf ! Quick ! I
can save you !" She threw her arm
_around a post of the mill to secure her
self, and wound the end of the scarf
'which she still held firmly around her
wrist. • '‘
"Do not hesitate a moment ! Delay
may be fatal !" . she called to hini.
He lifted his head proudly, his cheeks
flushing, his eyes shining.
' he said, " I can accept aid
trent' you on only one condition. If
you do not consent to that, thee' I tell
you solemnly I Will drown before you
shall help me."
" And that ? tell me quickly !"
He did not speak very loud, but above
all the roar and crash of the water she
heard him.
" Promige to love me and you shall
save my life !"
She flushed rosy red, drew back for
an instant', and then bent toward - fhim.
"I promise," she said ; and catching;
il l
the s arf, he let her draw him to a place,
of sa ty.
. He stepped upon the plank, and took
her nds in his, looking down at her
wit i those strangely luminous eyes,
and le rare smile which made his face
so be utiful. Only a moment thus, and
ho drew her into his arms and, prison r
her lips with kisses.
"My love! my darling ! Mine for-'
ever !—Are you not?"
"Yes, dear . "
"Jenkins, Edith. Say 'yes, dear•J en-
"Yes, dear Jenkins," she said obedi
And the old mill sailed down the
stream until it reached the "Birch
Bend," and there it lodged against the
hollow in the east bank. Jenkins put
out a plank, and, after some difficulty,
succeeded in getting ashore with his
He got a farmer, who lived near
where.they landed, to take himself and
Edith home, where they were received
as though they had been dead. Nurse
DoWning had firmly believed they had
both perished in that dreadfdl mill.
• 4ir. Jenkins quietly announced his
,engagement to Edith, at the supper
table; and the next day he went to the
city and brought up Mr. Ainsworth and
aunt Allen.
And singularly enough, Edith thought,
neither of these friends of hers made
the slightest objection to having the
wedding take place at the end - of a
fortnight, as Jenkins insisted.
The night before the bridal, Jenkins
took Edith to the little grape-arbor at
the foot of the garden.
"Edith, my darling," he said, "are
you sure really sure, thatyou love me?"
"Yes, am sure."
"Then, if you love me, you will for
give me a little deception. Dear, 1; am
not Mr. Jenkins; I am Harry Melville,
whom you resolved to hate so niteli !

PHILADELPHIA, June 6, 1753
Six: I received your kind letter of
the gd instant, and am glad to hear that
you increase in strength ; I hope you
will continue mending, till you recover
your former health and firmness. Let
me know whether you still use the cold
bath, and what effect it has.
As to the kindness you mention, I
wish it could have been of more service
to you. But if it had, the only thanks
I should desire is, that you would al
ways be equally ready to serve any othz
er person that may need your assistancei
and„so let good offices go round ; for
mankind are all of one fah - lily.
For my own part, when I am employ
ed in serving others, I do not look upon
myself as conferring favours, but as
paying debts. In my travels, and since
my settlement, I have received much
kindness from men, to whom I shall
never have any opportunity of making
the least (Urea return ; and numberless
mercies from; God, who- is infinitely
above being benefited by our services.
Those kindnses from men, I can there
fore only return to their fellow - men,
and I can only show my gratitude for
these mercies( of God, by a readiness to
help his other children, and my breth
ren. For I do not think that thanks
and . compliments, though repeated
weekly; can discharge our real obliga
tions to each other, and much less those
to our Creator. You will see in this my
notion of good works, that I am liir
from expecting to merit heaven by
them. By heaven we understand a
state of happiness, infinite in degree,
and eternalAn duration : can do noth
ing to deserve such rewards. He that
for giving a draught of water to a thirsty
person, should expect to be paid with a
good plantation, would be modest in;
his demands, compared with thoSe who ,
think they deserve heaven for the little
good they do on earth. Even the mist ,
itnperfect pleasures we enjoy in this
world, are rather from God's goodness
than our merit: how much more such)
happiness of heaven ! For my part Il
have not the vanity to think I deserve'
it, the folly to expect it, nor the ambi
tion to desire it; but content myself in
submitting to the will and disposal of
that God who made me, who has hith
erto preserved and blessed me, and in
whose fatherly goodneis I may well con
fide, that he never will make me miser
able; and that even ,the afflictions I
may at any time suffer shall tend to my
The faith you mention ha certainly
Its use in the world : Ido not desire to
see it diminish, nor would I endeavour
to lessen it in any man. But I wish it
were more productive of good works
than I have generally seen it : I mean
real good works ; works of kindness,
charity, mercy, and public spirit; not
holiday-keeping, sermon:rea ding or
heaKing; .performing church ceremon
ies, or making long prayers, filled with
flatteries and - compliments, despised ,
even by wise , men, and much less capa
ble of pleasing the Deity. The worship
of God is a duty; the hearing and read-'
'ing of sermons 'may be useful ; but if
men rest in hearing and pniying, as toe ,
'many do, it is as if a tree 4hould value'

In olden times it wuz observed that
slave niggers didn't smell—it wuz ly
the free ones. It is a settled faetwnow
that Dimekratic niggers are inedorous I
I mite hey known, howeyer, that the

the war, any how.
My principal objiek in goin to Noo
York wux to do wat I cood toward se
coorin the . nominashun uv Jethro ,L.
Kippins. I found the delegates badly
tore up. The offers made for votes wuz
so ridiculously low that there wuz
much disgust manifestid. The trouble
wuz that the markit: was overstokt.
Hed the convenshun bin pretty ekally
dividid, and the balance uv.power held
by a few clost mouthed souls, they cud
hey made a good thing uv it. But
where a - whole convenshun is in the
markit, and al 1 their inflooenshel
friends no candidate kin afford to buy.-
' withdrew Mr. Kippins to-wunst, for'
ez he hez but a small farm, and that
mortgaged to a grosery keeper, the del
egates I approacht laft me to skorn.
I wuz on the Committee on Resolu
aliens, or rut her wuz in the room ez a
sort uv adviory committee "while; the
resolooshens wuz bein draftid. Gen.
Forrest, uv Tennessee, wuz partiklerly
anxshus that a resolooshen shood be

wuZ, with unholy hands, a tryin to de
strey the best government the sun ever
shone upon, and on the destruction uv

sired a resolooshen pledgin the Mateo

wich flaghed bravede thousand breezes,

desired a resoushen demandin the

Vallandiguin insistid that a plank be
inserted wich recognized nigger surage,
but that wuz withheld ontil it cod be
definitely assertained whether M ssiss
ippi was reely carried by nigger votes
or not. Ef a majority uv the niggeT did
. reely vote the Demokratic ticket, was
desided that they2shood be recognized

• Cheef Justis Chase wuz espes l helly
anXyus for a 'resolooshun denounsin in
the severest terms them onprincipled,
fanatikal Radikels, who for year hed
bin laborin to subvert the government,
by interferin with the persuntrand pro

Convenshen to that wise conservatism
without wich ther cood be no perma
nence in our government.
I dropt into the Soljera' and Sailers'
Convenshen, but I didn't stay long.
Them whose nozes wuzn't red wanted
to be either President or cabinet orfisersi
and uv the balance uv em, the leastest

I saw seated among em the very sutler
who refoosed me credit when I wuz
servin ez a drafted man 'in '1862; and
also a claim agent who got $lO uv me
on the promis uv gettin my bounty,
which when he got in he absorbed in

the speech wich he delivered at the
Cleveland Conveushen in 1866 carefully
preserved, and they all insisted on de

doin, all to',themselves. Ef they kin
Clan it I ani willin. We are agoin to
to hey a Soljers' Convenshen in -Rich
mond to taffy the nominashens, wich
will amount to suthin. We shall , hev
Forrest there, and;Boregard and Breck
enridge, and thee seeches will count.
We will hey the ft gs uv the two gov
erments entwined' ' , and we will heve
the moosic uv both seckshens played.
Sick a Convenshen will amount to
suthin. •
\Vat the platform will be, or who the
candidates will be, .the Lord only
knows. I am prepared for anythin,
and so are all the delegates. Efits Pen
dleton, on a repoodiashen platform,
weli, and good—ef its Seymour, on a
Nashenel Bank platform, just ez good.
I shood be happy to see Breckenridge
the choice uv the party, and, delighted
of Hancock shood be chosen. I kin
hurrah for Chase, and with ekal vigger
kin swing my hat for Vallandigum, and
I find all the delegates similarly affect
ed. The Post Office is the lean kine
with swallers up all the others. We
are willin to sink everythin in Post
Wilds. That my sincerity may not be
doubted, let it be remembered that I
hey rid with a nigger from Ingeany to
Nob York ; hey bin whaled by one and
-hey felt good over it; hey bin hurrahin
for an old line Abolishnisht, and swear
in the while I liked it. Ef any other
evidence uv flexibility is needed, -I feel
ekal to the task. Politically, lam ekal
