Among the potentates of Wall street,
few held a higher position in the esti
mation of all than Messrs. Archbold &
Horton ; and great was the sympathy
universally'expressed whenthe former,
a man of middle age only, died sudden
ly,at his residence, in the vicinity of
Fifth avenue. For years,' previously to
this occurrence, Mr, Horton bad dwelt
with his partner and his family, and
Mrs. Archbold, on her husband's de
mise, could look to no firmer. friend
than he ; so, after the accounts,of the
firm had been settled, and she knew the
amount of the income she would be en
titled to enjoy, she begged him Still' to
remain at her house, on the same foot
ing as of yore. This arrangement would
be all the more pleasing to her, Inas
miich as she was the mother of three
daughters, who were just ripening into
womanhood, and would-feel the benefit
of a male friend almost old enough t 6
he their .father,- and who had so long
been associated with them on terms of
the closest intimacy. ' .
Mr. Horton was a man of about forty
five years, who had long been separated
from his wife by mutual agreement, but
did not Miro: in the esteem of his neigh-,
boys on this account; as it was generally
conceded that the fault lay entirely
with tielady ; and he Invariably him
self deplored the misunderstanding that
had arisen. In a word, Mrs. Horton
was jealous, and yet was unable tows=
sign any cause for being so. Duringtho ,
few years in which she and her
band lived as man and wife i ' she was,
continually accusing him of infidelities,
of which she could produce no, proofs •
miserable by this continual,- bickering;
that they had decided to apart' for
the future. As they were separated by
no judicial decree, it was not legally in
cambent on her husband to provide for
his wife's maintenance; still ho did so i
although the° lady described the sum
paid her as being totally ihadequate to
her condition, and was ever striving to
collect evidence of Mr. Horton's alleged
irregularities, that she night be ena
bled to procure a divorce, and compel
him by law to contribute more bounte
ously to her support.
This evidence however was not foith ;
coming ; and Mr. Horton was accoun
ted a man, of excellent moral character
and behavior by the society in which
hq moved, and was blamed by none,
'but pitied 1.37 all. Personally he was
handsome, of. tall stature and good pres-1
ence, and possessed of a most winning
tongue, which not only was of the
greatest service to him in his bwiness,
but made him a universal favorite with
the fair sex. •
• When Mrs. Archbold represented Iter
forlorn condition.to him, he at once en
tered fully into her plans. Anything
that he could do, he averred; to - serve
the widow and daughteis of his lamen-:
ted friend would afford him heartfelt
joy and as he was unblessed with chil
,of his own; in'eopsequende-of the,
unhappy relations existing between . bis
wife and himself, he wordd, to the best
of his powers, save Mrs. Arehbolt eve
ry unnecessary trouble, and stand as far
as possible in the place of a father to
the three girls. Matters were thus ath-,
icably arranged, and Mr. Horton in time
came to be recognized as master of the
. house, and whispers were circulated
abroad that, were It not for the obstacle
iu the shape of his:wife, he Would have
actually become so by contracting a
marriage with the relict'of his deceased
As we have only to deal with the
dest daughter, Wary Archbold, it is
needleSs to introduce'her sisters, or their
uncle, who likewise formed one of the
household. Mary was auharming girl,
of twenty, who , had been completing
her education abroad, at the time of her
father's death, and had recently return
ed. As it was known that she wpuld
inherit a considerable sum on her,mar
riage, she' was - rmieli sought, after, and
no dance or reception was thoroughly
successful unless she were present.—
.More.than one gentleman was pointed
at-by rumors as likely to Niqw file" prize,
and the home circle was ever urging
her to' make her choice quickly: That
-her heart was engaged in some quarter
or other, was the universal belietas her
manner was strangely altered since her
arrival from:the continent. -
She grew thoughtful; and not unfre
'quently was discovered in'tears, butev
er refused to give any clue to the why
or the wherefore ;1 attributing her sad
ness to her not • feeling quite well, or
some other equally trivial t excuse.—
Thinking it would be best tonllow mat
ters to take their
.own course; andtotol
ly unsnspieiefl,s any iniptuftling evil;
her mother ceased to!'speak with her on
the subject, and enddavored to dissipate
her melanchOly by pidviding all kinds
of amusements to divert her. All was
in vain ; and one day the house Ivas
thrown info the greatest grief and alarm
by her disappearance. 'She had gage
out, as she said, to post a 19tter, and no
thing unusual was noticed in her 'snail- .
ner, but from that errand she did not
return, and her distracted Mother was
almost heartbroken. •
:No one felt the blow more than' Mr.
Horton. After she had' been absent
some bours,:he had been sent for from
his 45'illee, and his pale looks and evir

THE NAME IN THE SAND:
DY DEORGIPI D. PRENTIOE.
Alone I walked the ocean strand, • • - •
, A pearly shell was In my hand;
, I stooped, and wrote upon the sand, '
My name, the yonr and day;
As onward from the spot I passed, •
Ono lingering look behind I east,
,A wave came rolling high and fast;
And washed, my lines away.
And so mothought 'twill quickly ho
With every mark on earth from me!
A wave of dark Oblivion's sea .
Will swoop across the place
Where I have trod the sandy shy°
Of time, and ho to me no more;
Of me, my day, the nano I bore,
•to leave no track, no trace.
And yet With Ilim who counto,the.sands
And holds the water in His bands,
I know a lasting record stands
Inscribed against my name,
Of all this mortal part has wrought, •
Of all this thinking soul has thought,
And from these fleeting moments caught,
For glory or for shame.

one by one, the case was intrusted to a
well:known detective of this city, With
fall poWer and autherity to act as 'he
thought , best. .
' This gentleman, crediting the old ad;.-
age .tbat •" two heads ' are' better than
one," , Procured the services of n com
panion, who bad been specially retain
ed for cases of this kind. After having
been. put in possession of all the infor
mation that' could be given him, the
diameter_ of .the young lady, her por
' trait, her dress; the manes of her com
panions, with their 'addresses, her ad
mirers, and sundry little peculiar char
acteristie's, he set' himself to work to
solve the problem
Both of the detectives agreed at once
on one point, although they' earefully
kept it to themselves': As the officer in
question remarked to the writer of these'
lines, "Whenever a girl suddenly runs
away in this fashion, a 'man is at the
bottom Of it. Let'us only find the roan l
and the rest will be easy." He there
upon cautiously questioned her sisters;
and even the doMestics, as to whether
• any one gentleman had, appeared to be
more agreeable than any other. ,
No ; she had never exhibited any de
cided preference. Did any ono see to
whom the letter was directed which she
carried to the post - on the day of her
leaving honie? No ; , it . was . not even
certain that she had . a
letter at all.—
Could he see any of her handwriting?
Yes, plenty of it;' and he thereupon se
cured a specimen.
Re then prepared a carefully written
description, and forwarded it, together
with her likeness,' to the various police
stations in this city and other large
towns. He visited every hole and cor 7
nor of New York, watched the railway
derAs, and interrogated the clerks.—
Thelme and cry was raised everywhere
—ln raised in vain.
Now and again a message would be
tient to him, saying that a young lady
answering the description of the' tru
ant was at some,distant town, and thi
ther at once would the detective repair,
only to find that he_had his journey for
'as" 'A I for
sea as ever.
.Once ho fancied that he
saw Miss- Archbold in a earring° in
ilroadway, and followed it for a Jong
tithe, only to acknowledge himselfagain
mistaken ; but lie was convinced, nev
ertheless, that she had not left the coun
try, and ho much tlonhted whether she
had left the town.
He had carefully examined, or caused
to be examined, all the books of the va
rious steamship companies, and "in
terviewed" their agents, to no purpose.
The girl had melted into the - air, with
out:leaving a trace behind her, and the
trail was a out as difficult to follow up
as that of mosquito over a rock.
An MUM ally liberal reward had been
offered by fr. Horton for any inforrna
tio4 that would lead to her recovery ;
and constant applications were made
by individuals who professed either to
have seen her themselves, or to have
heard from some friend .who had seen
her, and many a wild goose chase was
the result; until at last the detective
began to fear that she bad made way
with herself, and actually visited the
Morgue more than once, when the body
of a dead woman was advertised. Still
he did not relinquish his original idea,
and When pressed by his companion to
try some other tech, only repeated what
he had paid before : . . .
" Depend upon it, ii man is at thebot
tom of it."
, One day a new thought struck him,
and absurd as it appeared, even to him
self, he determined on giving it a fair
trial, and, startled his brother ofileer,by
remarking, "Dave, I am going to watch
old Hortsn." The other laughed at
him, - but did not oppose his suggestion,
as it gave at least a promise of seine
thing to do.
Mr. Horton, in 'common with many
other gentlemen, was extremely fond
of driving, and au afternoon rarely
passed without his ordering his buggy.
He bad, of late, been much worked at
his office, and frequently slept at a ho 7
tel when. he found it was too late to*en
joy an evening at home. There was
nkthing extraordinary in all . this T-more
particularly as that home was no onger
as cheerful as it used to be halve the
death of the father and the loss kif the
daughter—and no one paid any atten
tion to his conduct.
Th? detective commenced his espion
age inmediately, and Mr. Horton was
. followed wherever he went.—
His drives were usually in the direction
of Harlem; and as ho was but little'
learned in horses, , and would have as
soon thought of driving a locomotive as
a fast trotter, the officer became curious
to sde what it-was that induced him so
constantly . to patronize that road. He
therefore hired a vehicle,, and having
instructed this coachman to follow Mr.
Horton's bu gy, waited patiently for
the upshot, 1 hatever it might be. .
Of one thh g he was soon convinced.
Wherever Mr. Horton drove, it was Not
to Harlem ; for after pursuing 'that di
reCtion for a short distance, lie turned
his horse's head and drove back toward
the city.' Closely followed by the de
tective in the fly, he drove to a house
in the immediate neighborhood of the
*evi York . nOtel. Here he drew up,
and having rung the
,beli, entered with
the air of a man who was perfectly at
The detective, in the mean time, left
his . carriage and took' up a position
where he could command a view of ev
erything without being lintiself visi
ble. Nearly an hour elapsed, and Mr.
Horton did not re-appear. What on
earth is he up to? thought the . detec
tive; there must..be some great attrac
tion hero; and he congratulated him
self on the step be bad taken.
,the• front doofoPened, and
Mr: Horton stepped intothestreetwith
a lady on' his aria; whom he 'ie . nderly
assisted into the buggy. The 'lady's .
face was thickly veiled, and the looker
on could not guess everfatliei ago, ex
cept that her movements seemed those
of a young Woman: Mr. Horton seated
himself by her side and drove off, and
the detective. his'curioslty now excited
to the highest pitch, again started on
his trail; This led MM . straight to - the
Jersey ferry, and in course 'of time he
alighted, carriage and all, in Jersey
.Tile chase set off without delay to
ward Newark, in happy ignorance of
a pursuer. When Newark was reach
eil, Mr. Horton stopped at a hotel, and,
accompanied by the lady, went in, af
ter ordering his-horse to be put up for
an hour or two. The detective soon
learned that he had ordered dinner, and
as his own appetite was good,, resolved
to imitate his example. While his meal
was being prepared, he' loitered • about
the passage in the hope of obtaining' a
peep at the fair unknown. Presently
the opportunity came. One of the wai
ters left the door open, and through the
crack the lady' was distinctly visible.
The detective fell back as if he had
been shot; plunged his hands. into his
pockets to find the portrait of Miss
Archbold ;' presently he pulled it out,
looked at it attentively, and then took
another peep through the crack in the
door. Apparently satisfied, be slowly
walked away, his countenance exhib
iting a, mixture of the greatest surprise,
indignation and self-satisfaetion, At
this moment a waiter met him.
" Hallo !" said he ; "do that gentle
man and lady often come here ?"
"Two or three times, a week, sir,"
bus the reply.
The deuce they do." said the detec
tive, slowly. " Well, I am—" what, he
did not say, for chuckling to himself.—
He wen t . out, jumped into the hack,
nod returned at full speed to New York.
He was conveyed straight to Mrs. Arch
bold, and demanded to see rier alone.—
His manner, was so constrained, that
she instantly divined that something
most startling had happened.
" You have news—news of Mary?"
', Yes, Mrs. Arcl bold, I have, but I
don't exactly lcn w how I'm to tell
"Where is she? what is she doing?
Speak, man, speak !""'
" Mrs. Archbold,' you' ask Mr. Hor
ton ; he'll tell you better than I can."
" Mr. Horton ! What. do you mean ?
Does he know where she is?"
" I guess so—ho ought to."
" What is this mystery ?Tolt me all
_to tell me, plainly. I can
" Well, don't blame me. Mrs. Arch
bold, if you will have the truth—Mr,
Horton has knoWn all along where your
daughter has been." -
" How dare you tell me so—how dare
" Et's of• no use being angry, madam,
with die--7I have only done my thity.—
.1. have seen your daughter and Mr. nor
ton together this afternoon ; hare but
just left them, and can take you to the
house which I SW them leave."
Mrs. Archbold did not faint, neither
scream, but her features grew rigid with
anger and pale with agitation: She left
the room, and in a very few minutes re
entered it, dressed and ready to go out.
1 p]ane," she said ; and the Vivo si
lently started on their errand. Wbeti
they arrived at the house, the detective
rang the bell, and asked' the servant if
Miss Archbold lived there.
" No, sir; we have hone but married
" Well," showing the portrait, ".doefi
this lady live here?"
" Yes, sir; but she hi not in at pres-
" Very well ; then we will come in
and wait for her; but you need not tell
her that any one is here:"
'The hours passed very tediously, lira]
the fortitude of Mrs. Archbold had al
most given way, when a carriage drove
up to the door, and immediately after
ward her daughter's voice was heard
bidding some one "good; night." The
carriage slowly &paled, and the de
tective, bidding the mother keep close
behind Ihim, stepped quietly' into / the
hall, ano stood face to face with the girl
he had o long been looking for.
" flood , evening, Miss Archbold."
" That is not my name," and she look
ed him full in the face.
• " Indeed. Do you not, then, know
this lady ?"
Her bravado was all gone then, and
uttering a scream that made even the
experienced police officer wince, she
covered her face with her hands and
fell fainting on the floor.
The detective, raising the young lady
in his arms, carried her out, and placed
her by her weeping mother's side in a
carriage he had procured. It is no in
tention of mine to recount the scene 'he
,then witnessed between Mrs. Archbold
and her child. The detective,Jn all his
experience, had never met thelike, and
hopes never to meet it again. They
were both somewhat more composed
before they reached home, and the mo
ther had again nerved herself to meet
the snake whom she had so long called
friend. Mr. Horton had come in, and
was in the dining room, where ho bad
been told by the other two daughters,
who had been previously instructed,
that Mrs. Archbold had gone to take
tea with. an acquaintance.
He turned quickly round, smiling
blandly, as the handle of the door was
turned, and was about to advance—
. stood transfixed with tt‘rror,
and grasped the table for support.
Mrs. Archbold nev& spoke, but, t raw
ing herself up to her full height, poin
ted to her daughter, who had sunk into
a chair, and was sobbing convulsively.
Her sisters, rushing to'her sideirfondled
and embraced ; her, calling her by name,
and entreatiug her to be cairn. 'Pres

GERRIT SMITH TO ITON. HENRY WILSON.
' PETERRORO, March 29th 1870.
Hole HENRY WILSON, U r B. Senate.—
My Dear'ir :L--.1 have read your paper
on Temp ranee in the last N. Y. inde
pendent. Whatever I see from your
pen Ire eagerly, expecting to be en
lightene hsit. 13nt this paper disap
points me. •
No small partof my long hie has been ;
spent in beseeching men to vote slave!
ry todetith.', But, as they would not '
bring it-to a bloodless end, it had to
go out in blood. Nearly as much of
my life has been spent in beseeching
men to vote drunkenness to death. To
stop dramselling would be to provide
for the speedy death of nearlyiall drun
kenness. What, whenJ. dramselling
shall be ended, may still remain of the
appetite for, alcohol and of the facilities
for gratifying it, will be easily controll
able and in'a process of rapid disap
pearance. Very unsuccessful, how
ever, have been the far too limited
efforts to induce the people to vote an
end.to dramselling. They persist in
voting dramselling tickets and in up- .
holding that accursed license system
under which the whole land is thickly
dotted with dramshops, each of which
is a manufactory of madmen, murder
ers incendiaries and paupers; each of
which hitlps make up the number of
the fifty, , thousand, who go annually
into dritukti-ds' graves ; and each of
which haven share in bringing annu
ally into the ranks of drunkenness fifty,
thousand of our young men.
What in your paper before me, most
sprprises and pains me, is its perfect
silence in respect to voting. For years,
you were earnestly engaged in the work
of voting slavery to death. Hence you
connected yourself with an independ
ent• anti-slavery politicAl party, and
eloquently summoned your fellow citi
,do likewise. Why is it that
you are not now at work to get the
dramshop voted out of existence? I no
tice that you speak of the labor we have
had with slavery and with its conse
quences as a "political" labor, and pf
that we have with temperance as a
"moral" one. I beg you te inform
the public of your grounds for this dis
tinction. Is not the dramshop as much
as slavery the creature of law ?—and IS
Jolt political action to shut it up as
necessarily and as loudly called for, as
it was to terminate slavery?
Your reliance for, carrying forward
the cause of temperance is on the re
viving of an interest in it in the church.
"THE ('riuncit MUST TARE UP THE
3tiorrint,l , say you in capitals. Now,
if you had said : "the church must take
up the matter of voting for temperance
or.,‘ in other words, of voting, against
the dramshop," my whole heart would
lnive fallen in with your injunction. I
like sermons and prayers, when their
avowed end is-to promote the doing of
the work, quit is to be done :—but I
loathe theth when they are made a sub
stitnte for doing it. A ehuich, that,
expressly preach and pray rormen
to vole the shutting up of. tlie dram
shop, is a church that I like. But such
it chureh is not common. Nay, tincoM -- -
mon is the church, whose votes do not
go to keep open this overflowing foun
tain of the heaviest curses. You refer
to the guilty conduct of the church in
our old struggle with slavery. guilty
wherein? -She failed not,topreach and
pray against oppression. Her guilt
was in clinging to pro-slavery parties
mid refusing to testify against slavery
at the polls. Similar to this is her guilt
in the matter of the
drunkenness;—and you must' pardon
me for adding that you, instead of en
tirely-ignoring the wickedness of her
drainshop voting, are, from your influ
ential nosition in the church,:under
special obligation to bring home to her
and press upon her this great wicked
ness. Would that, instead of l writing
this paper, which I am criticising, you
had called on the church• to persuade
all her voters; to join the national polit
ical party organized last September for
the suppression of dramselling% Some
of these voters are joining it. kSome of
them are Still foolish enough to be :
lieve that their dramshop parties will
yet abolish the dratushop.just %there
were persons who were foolish enough
to believe that the old Whig and Demo
crane parties would abolish slaVery. To
hang upon these parties which' as a
general remark, have not the least idea
of ever making war upon the i. ramshop
is, surely, a very poor way to elp tem
perance. Some of these v ) oters would
quit their dramshop parties t i e join a
Party (if there was suelivla.ionfl) i which
goes against the . dramshdP 'and also
against certain things t hat,t hey, greatly
dislike. But the party, -which fights
the dramshop, will have its bands full,
though it shall fight nothing else. It
will need, too,'all the help it can get—
Catholic as wells as Protestant voters;
men of whateveit views of the Common
School ; Jews, ileventh day Baptists
and No-Sabbath men as well al3 Sunday
men. It is true hat a party for tem
perance and p`rotestantism might; as it
-is claimed it would, "sweep the State."
Such a party would, however, sweep it
not with temperance—but with a pm
teslant frenzy. IL would bring no help,
hut, on the contrary, immense harm to
temperance. No good whatever would
cotno of such a party; whilst the sec
tarian animosity,it would engender is
au evil beyond, computation. I have
now referred to some of the 'different
courses of different church members.
I close under this head with • saying
that a large share of the church ,mem
hers manifest no interest whateVer ,in
the cause of temperance. .
You refer to the obvious decline
perance; anti you add that his decline
is notwithstanding all that. has been
done.in the last half coital , both in
and out of the church, to advance tem
perance. But none should wonder that
this precious cause makes nb progress,
nor even that it falls. back. A man
undertakes to build a honse.. He col
lects the materials for it—hut be leaves
them to rot. No wonder, then, that
the hodse is not built. But no more
room is there for wonder that the cause
'of temperance is not yet crowned with
success. Nearly half a century ago, we
begari, - in our pledges, prayers, sermons;
leetureS, ,singing and what not, our
preparatiOns for f4iat success. But, .
alas, wo went no farther than to pre-'
pare to build. Instead of going for
ward to the ballot-box to put up our
blinding, and to the statue-book -to
complete it, we rested in our worthless
preparateries—worthlesa because rested
Every' day, we were getting farth
er and farther from erecting our build
ing, because we were, every day, losing •
interest in our More and more stale
preparations and more and more de- •
cayed materials. Nay, so far from,
erecting the temperance _edifice, we
have gone yearly to the polls and to the,
legislatUre to prevent the erection.
Worse than this, we have gone there
to renew the supports of the rum edifice,
and to protect it from demolition at
the . hands ,of the handful of earnest r
tenaperance Men. This is a world of
shams—and wo'expeet nothing better
than that a large share of our leadiog
men will continue to. be interested in
upholding them. Bait we cannot afford
to have a man of the power and influ
ence of , Henry. 'Wilson countenance
these shams. •
I am glad you 'declare the temperance
work to be "the next step," and the pres
ent time, when, as you say, "politleiare
construction is substantially complete,"
to be "the opportune moment" foi tak
ing this "next step." Many RePthli
cans, whom I ask to take this '"next
step" Now, and to take it effedively in
the anti-dramshop party, excuse them
selves on the ground that, for the sake
of, the colored man, they must remain
lOhger in the Republican party. They
wish me to understand it is because
am incapable of sympathising with
their deep Interest in him, that I can
be so cruel, as to tear away their dear
anti-Slavery hearts from their dear anti
slavery party. On the face of your
announcement that temperance is "the
next step," you are at disagreement
with these Republicans. But, perhaps,
they will flatter themselves your an
nouncement was made with the under
stood 'proviso that temperance is not
"the next step," if it can be taken only
at the expense of stepping out of the
Republican party. Indeed, they may .
even go so far as to suspect that Your
making temperance the concern of the
church instead of the voters, is only an
adroit expedient for saving the Repub
lican party from being disturbed by it.

it understood that he may 'be regarded
as a sort of consulting physician for
