"Ah, brokea U the golden bowl, the ipirit flown
Let the bell toll! a saintly soul floats on tha Stygi

And let the burial rite be real—the lunaral soDg be
An anthem for the lovliest dead that ever died so
A dirge for her the doubly dead in that she died so
" Come, Lilla, now for the story," said my
cousin Ellen, as she seated herself upon a
stool at iny feet, and lying her restless head
upon my knee, while she raised her dark be
witching eyes with a most implormg express
ion to my own.
"How can I withstand thy earnest solicita
tions, sweet coz 1 But turn away those
bright star-like orbs from mine, dear Nell,
for thou shouldst be so well acquainted with
their power as to be aware that while they
are thus gazing upon me I cannot describe
those of another, which unlike thy own
were deeply yet beautifully blue." So Nell
cast down her eyes very modestly upon the
carpet while a gentle smile lingered about
her mouth, and I began my story.
"Alice Cleaveland was the only child of a
wealthy merchant of this city. Beauty ot
tha sweetest nnd gentlest nature was hers.
Picture to yourself, sweet Nell, a complexion
ihet could vie with tho valley lily, regular
and very delicate features, a nose that an ar
chitect would have been proud to take as a
model, a 6weet, bewitching little mouth, a
slight but beautiful form, tiny white hands,
and feet for which Cinderella's slipper wo'd
have been a size too large, and you will have
before you a complete portrait of my lovely
heroine. Nay, nay, dear Nell, do not shake
your head thus, and reproach me for having
forgotten to mention the bright rose tints
that gave new lustre fo the snowy skin. I
had not forgotten them, but the rose never
matea with the lily, and Alice was a perfect
"Fair and delicate as that frail fi >wer, h ad
Alice C leaveland ever been, for her const itu
liun was naturally delicate, and the 6lightes
exertion was sufficient to cause illness.— f
From her birth, ber parents had watched
over her with the most intense solicitude,
and though the physician declared she could
not poaibly aurvive the period of childhood ,
bia prediction was not verified, and she grew
up to her aeventeenth year wnhout giving
her parents any canse to regard themselves
as in danger of losiug her.
"Still, the least excitement or agitation
possessed power fo weary her, She never
attended theatres, or balls, or joined in any
similar pleasure, of which most young girls
aie fond ; and only once, when she was
scarce fifteen, had she accepted an invitation
to a party, and then, when she returned, she
was to completely unnerved that it was ma
ny days era ehe recovered from the effects,
and her parents would never consent to her
going again.
"And Alice murmured not , she was hap
py at her own loved home, where her young
days passed in continual sunshine. Hers
was a lovlog heart, and pure and unspotted,
too, for never had an evil thought claimed a
place within it. She posse sed few intimate
friends, nor did she wish for more, for Alice
loved thosa she had very dearly, and di d not
care to make room in her heart for others.
"Among the members of her fathers house
hold were her cousin, Henry Cleaveland,
who had always lived with them, and a
young and beautiful heiress, Ida Lisle, who
had been committed to the guardianship of
Mr. Cleaveland. Ida was very beautiful, but
hers was a different kind of loveliness from
that of the delicate Alice. (Tall, yet not too
tall, commanding and dignified in appearance
graceful in every movement, and, above, all
lovely in mind as in person, and with the
rose of health beaming upon her cheek was
it a wonder she excited admiration and love
in all who knew her 1
" And uow let us turn to another. Henry
Cleveland had been left an orphan at an ear
ly age, and his uncle bah watched over him
with all the affection of a parent. He was
indeed a noble young n>an. In person, he
was handsome and manly, possessed of good
principles and an excellent disposition, wilh
a heart susceptible of the fineßt emotions,
and ke had just entered upon the manage
ment of a large estate, the inheritance of
which his father had not lived to enjoy.
"Henry had ever loved his cousin Alice,
but it was the affection of a brother for an
only and beloved sister. He- felt that he
would never dare to dwell upon her with
other thoughts, a deeper love could never be
returned by Alice, for she was too pure, too
holy in nature, to place her mind very firm>
ly upon an earthly object. As a meek and
I spotless angel, Henry regarded Alice Cleave
land, and whenever he gazed upon her lovely
face, and saw the hectic flush that went and
came with each passing emotion, a dark fore
boding would a teal over him that she to
young and beautiful, was not long to be a
child of earth i
"But httl did he know his cousin's heart
He never marked how lovingly her blue eye#
glanced upon his face, or how the bright
crimson mantled her fair cheek when he ad
dressed her with more than usual tenderness
Why did the young girl's heart throb so
wildly when her crusin pressed a fraternal
kiss upon her brow ? Why did sho watch
so anxiously for his return, when he left her
for a fevr hours ? and why did her little
hend tremble and flutter so when he clasped
it within his, and called her his own dear
'lt was because Alice loved. Yes, with all
the truth and fervor of a first affection she
loved her cousin Henry. He was everything
to her. Was she sad. her cousin alone had
power to cheer her droopißg spirits, and,
with a single kind word spoken, in his own
soothing tones, he could bring a smile into
the pale cheek of the gentle girl. Was she
ill, he was ever beside her, and while she
lay languidly upon her couch he read aloud
from her favorite authors.
"Cleaveland knew full well that he was
regarded with affection by his cousin, but
ncer for a moment did he deem that her at
tachment to him could be other than a de
voted sisterly love. He dreamed not that
the fair young being loved him with an affec
tion that naught but death could chill ; he
knew not that every tender word he uttered
sank far into the inuermost depths ofhhae a
heart ; no, for had the knowledge been his,
my tale would not have beeu a mournful
''Henry Cleaveiand wonld liavo deemed it
profanation to think of Alice with other than
a brotherly attachment, and thinking thus
restrained not his affections, and when his
eyes rested upon the beaunfui Ida Lisle, he
felt that he had found one whom It would
not be wrong to love,
"Poor Alice ! from tho moment Ida be
came a resident of her lather's mansion her
doom was sealed ! Yet she was utterly un
conscious that any change had taken place,
and for many months she lived on, apparent
ly secure in her cousin's affection.
"From early childnood, Ida Lisle had been
the most intimate friend of Alice Cleaveland
and rather than give the latter one moment's
pain she would have sacrificed everything,
even the love of Henry Cleaveland. But she
imagined not the state of Alice's heart, and
with her ignorance of this, she allowed her
self to love when love was, alas ! to be the
harbinger of death to her young and trusting
"One morning, Alice, feeling better than
usual, went out to walk. She was gone for
a long time, aud returned worn out and ill,
for she had overrated her strength. Hastily
she threw herself upon a sofa in the parlor,
acute and distressing pains shooting through
her frame, and frequently causing her to close
her eyes with agony,
"Ida hastened towards ber, and bent sor
rowfully over her friend, and as she gazed
upon the palid face of the sufferer, the burn
ing tears streamed rapidly from her eyes.
The gentle invalid observed them, and ten
derly pressing the hand she held in her own,
•he murmured .
"Weep not for me, dearest Ida; do not
mourn thus. If it be the will of tho Great
One that I Buffer, I may not repine—l will
try to bear it ail,"
"But, O, Alice," replied her weeping com
panion, "how can I behold, unmoved, your
delicate limbs racked with these dreadful
pains ! O, that I could take them upon my
self, sweet Alice! Gladly, willingly, would
I bear them, to afford you one moment's re
" I know it, my own Ida," said Alice, ten
derly ; "yon would lay down yonr life for my
sake, would you not V
" At that moment a foot-step was heard
approaching, and Henry Cleveland entered.
" What, Alice ill I he exclaimed, advanc
ing to her side ; how came ibis sweet cous
in V
•' It is nothing," she replied, while a smile
of we 1 come appeared upon her face in the
midst of all her sufferings "It is only
one of my old attacks, I shall soon be well
" Just then Cleveland's eye rested upon
Ida, as she stood mournfully beside, Al'oe,
her dark eye softened with recent weeping.
A thousand tender emotions came pressing
upon his heart, and ho felt that he loved Ida
Lisle far better than any other that the
world contained. Long and earnestly aid
he gaze upon that fair face, observing not
the death-like paleness that overspread the
countenance of his young cousin.
" A strange feeling, such as she had never
before experienced, crept over the heart of
Alice Cleveland. A foreboding, a chill, such
as she had never known till then, seemed to
paralyze her frame ; her head swam, her
brain became confused, and in an instant she
lay pefore her sousin and friend cold and ad
parently dead.
" Alice, Alice !" shrieked Ida, raising the
drooping form in her arms, "dear Alice, look
up and speak to your Ida. O, Ilenty, she is
so very cold. O, save her—call assistance,
she must not die."
"I will, dear Ida,', he replied then sum
moning the servants. Alice was conveyed bv
tham from the room, Ida did not follow. A
fear that her friend was indeed dead, came
upon her mind, and the nit in a atupor on
the eofa, How long the remained tha# she
knew not, but-she was at length aroused by a
well known voice, and the next moment Hen
ry stood beside her.
"Ida" he exclaimed, alarmed at beholding
her thus ; " dear Ida, are you ill 1 Alice
has recovered, and is now inquiring for you,
" No, lam not ill," she replied rising
slowly from her seat. " I will go to Al
" The young invalid reclined upon a couch.
Her languid head was supported by pillows
and, her soft eyes were dimned by her recent
swoon, but the expression of suffering had
left her face, and as Ida entered she looked
up and welcomed her with a glance of affec
" Are you better, Alice ?" Asked Ida,
as she tenderlv pressed that small transpar
ent hand.
"Much better, dearest," she roplied in a low
tone," but I have felt very strangely to day.
I know not why itjs, yet a presentiment of
ill rests heavily upon my spirit, and it seems
as thoughisomething terrible had befallen me.
But where is Henry ? Why does he stay
away so long ?" At that momeut he stood
before her, and gazing sadly upou the ashy
face of the young girl, he said, in a low voice
shaken wilh emotion, "I am here deaiesi:
You are very kind to me, dear Henry,"
and her sweet voice trembled slightly ; "you
have ever been so. May you ouo day be
rewa rdcd'for your care of one who has nev
er been aught but a burden to all around
"Say not so, Alice, you are not a burden
for who could help lovingone so gentle and
good. cousin, you know how well we
all love you."
" A smile of joy crossed the young girl's
countenance; she clasped her hands and mur
mured a few inaudible words, then the long
silken lasges slowly drooped over the blue
orbs beneath them, and she fell into a light
" Henry and Ida watched anxiously be
side her, rot hardly daring to breathe a word
lest they should disturb her rest. An hour
passed, and yet there was silence within that
little chamber, for Alice still slept. At
length a violent ring at the bell startled the
sleeper, and Mrs. Clevi land, who had been
from heme the whole morning, and was
therefore unacquainted with her daughter'#
sudden indisposition, entered. Her first in
quiry was for Alice, and on learning that she
had been taken worse, her fears were imme
diately awakened, and she proceeded direct
ly to her daughter's chamber: " Alice," she
exclaimed, in a voice of alarm, on beholding
the sick girl's altered appearance, " what ails
you, my child ?"
"Be calm, dear mother; I have been ill
again, but I shali soon grt better." But the
mother knew the physician's opinion, and in
an agony ofgrief she throw herself upon a chair
and burst into tears.
Alice appeared to b# much ditre##ed,
though she spoke not, while Ilearj reminded
Mrs. Cleveland how very iniurious it was for
her child to be exerted.
"The physician now came in, and when he
saw hi 3 young patient he shook his head sad
ly, as if he feared all would not be right.
"For days after that Alice lingered on the
verge of the grave, and her friends watched
sorrowfully beside her, fearing lest every mo
ment might be her death struggle. But in
spite ofevory prediction, before a fortnight
had elapsed she had nearly her us
ual health. It seemed as though fato had
adopted every measure that could string her
young and loving heart and she was preserv
ed for a few short hours but to have her
spirit deadened by the poisoned ar row o
blighted affection. Poor Alice ! Sweet flower
Better far had she sooner rested in the cold
dark grave, than to have been stricken to the
earth by chilling frosts of hopeless love.
"One pleasant summer morn, when the sun
gleamed brightly into her chamber wind-'W.
Alice resolved for the first time since hur
sickness to leave her room. Ida had been
absent for a long time from her side and the
young girl; feeling rather lonely, and desiring
once mo re to join the family circle, left h#r
"The drawing room was partly open, and
Alice stole softly down the stairs, thinkiDg
how gratified those within it would be to see
her again among tbem. She heard voices in
earnest conversation. She paused and listen
"Well, ah ! well, did she recognize the
voice ol one who Fpoke, and a thrill of de
light ran through her veins. But as she ber.t
her head to catch the beloved tones,the words
that 6he heard fell like drop? of lead upon her
heart. Again those fearful benumbing sensa"
tions came over her. Her head grew dizzy'
her lip# quivered, she shuddered, gasped and
"Henry Cleaveland atartled at the tound,
rushed from the room, and there upon the
cold floor, pale an d motionless, lay Aiice the

'•They tried to call her back, they prayed
her to gaze again, with the glances of affec

Could they cause the sweet voice of Alice to
ring once more musically upon their ears ?
No, the grave, the tomb, gloomily and daik
was henceforth to be the pillow upon which
har beautiful head must rest, and, with a cry

remained buried in tkought ; then in a low,
earnest tone, she said :
"And what became of Ida, Lilla ? Was
she not grieved to the heart at the unexpect
ed death of her friend, and did they ever find
out the cause of Alice's death ?"
"From some works Alice had written on
a slip of paper which Mrs. Cleaveland after
wards found in her deserted room, her unfor
unate attachment was brought to light but
the mother locked the secret within her own
bosom. For a long time Ida refused to be
comforted,and Henry too mourned Alice with
almost Inconsolable sorrow, but time healed

" To Whom it May Concern."
Thank God for a purified, regenerated
disenthralled Democratic Party ! Thank
God that every burden is lifted from its back
every impediment removed its victrious
path !
The men who have been the curse of the
party have gone out of the party. Close up
the ranks ! Welcome the new recruits !
Now we go into the November fight without
a Maw in our armor, without a speck upon
our stairless shield, and with no dread of a
"fire in the rear,"
From this day forth, every conservative
patriotic citizen in the North will have nei
ther doubt nor difficulty in his choice under
which banner to enlist— the banner of the
Democratic party, whose legend is :
" The Union at all hazards, and Peace
as soon as possible
or the banner of the Republican party whose
legend is ;
War for Abolition, Confiscation, Sub
Against us will he arrayed every abolition
ist, every d'suniouist, every man who loves
Peace and Disunion better than Union and
the I oace which toe Lni in alone can give
Shoddy with all its cohorts, the army of con
tractors, the army of office-holders, the trea
sury thieves, the enstom-house plunderers,
the cotton-stealeis, every man who can be
bought with money, and all tho honest hut
misguided men to whom Slavery seems the
supreme evil, and the Union something less
than our supremest political good.
With us will stand arrayed all men whose
"fid elity to the Union," in the language o f
the Chicago platform, is "answering all
men who declare with General MCCLELLAN
that " the Union must be preserved at all
hazards." Shoulder to Shoulder with us
will gather all those who believe with our
gallant standard-bearer, that, "to restore
and preserve the Union," •' the samo spirit
of conciliation and compromise which framed
the Union must prevail in our councils, and
"in the hearts of the people all those who
believe with him, that, " so soon as it is clear
or even probable that our present adversa—
" ries are ready for peace, upon the basis of
•' the Union, we should exhaust all tho re
" sources of statesmanship consisnent with
the honor and interests of the country to
" secure such peace all those who accept
the authorative utterance of the Democrat
ic party in convention assembled, in favor of
an " immediate cessation of hostilities " " a
national convention," or any other peaceable
m eans, whenever, and by which," peace may
"he restored on the basis of the federal Un
" ion of the States."
With us, and for us, will fight the gallant
men of the army and navy, whose great sac
rifice shall not have been in vaiu ; and all
who, like them. " would hail with unbound
j°y> as brave *nen may hail, the restora
tion of Union and Peace" without the effu
sion of snother drop of blood."
The farmers of our Harvests, the mechanics
in all our shops,the woikingraen of tho North
are with u9.
And all those whom one cause or another
has in past time allieoaled from the Demo
cratic party will now return to swell its ranks
auew, and help to win its victories.

within it, is fighting for * disunion peac*.

of a private letter from a soldier in the Army
of the Potomac, written to a gentleman, in

published in the Morning Post , says : "J am

"The number of idle, useless girls, in all
our large cities seems to be s'-eadily increas

mornings, parade the streets during the af

themselves and others are they|!aying up for
the time when their real duties and high re
vponsibilities shall be thoroughly assumed!
They are skilled in no domestic duties—nay r
they despise them ; have no habits of indust
