"TO SPEAK HIS THOUGHTS IS EVERY FREEMAIf'S RIGHT. "—Thomas Jefferson.
TUNKHANNOCK, PA., WEDNESDAY, JULY 19. 1865.
PARSON DOVE'S STORY.
She was a very beautiful girl. I think I
never saw such a lovely creaature in my life,
though 1 know thai .we are vry apt to be
misled by our imaginations, and "that the
eye makes lis own beauty But no one
could have thought her anything but pretty,
standing by the garden gate with her apron
full of wild flowers, and her curls, lifted by
the wind, dancing around her forehead like
a swarm of golden bees.
'.'My daughter, Rose," said her father, and
>he put her little white hand iuto mine as a
child might have done, just as simply and
prettily, so that it was very hard for me to
shake it and let it go instead of keeping it.
But there was somebody else to shake
hands, also, and he standing on the other
side of Deacon Olmstead, put out his long,
lank fingers, in black silk gloves, and per
formed the ceremony, winch he always weot
through with when one offered to shake
hands with him, and which could not have
been agreeable to anything except the vil
"Mr. Bitterworth,"said Deacon Olmstead,
waving his hand towards my companion with
impressment, "Mr. Dove," and he glanced at
me. Who should say he is of no importance?
"fs tea ready, my dear?"
Sht replied tlat tea was ready, and we
went into the old fashioned house, for we
were going to take tea with Deacon Olm
.-.tead, and, moreover, to spend the night be
neath his roof, having c'roe to W on
church husinesss, Deacon Olmstead always
uiakin a point ot entertaining two young
ministers on such occasions.
The Rev. Bci junto Bitterworth was
nucb older than 1, and much more import
ant in every way. I had been lately called
to struggling little churches, exceedingly un
fortunate in 'he way of difficulties and debts
where the congregation seldom paid any sal
ary, and always considered themselves ill
ned by the minister, who, in turn, was
mi how alwaa> injured by the personage
called E der Babshaw-, and some body was
always accused of ratsapprotaiing the cnurch
tunds I never could discover what thev
were. And the R. v. Silas Snow, having
aM ii French 1.-aVc in gieat disgust, the C'.n
gi■;..( "ii ad catted t'-r an 'enterprising
\ lilt- n o is.tl, and I ti.Ve been selected
But I t Beijaoiiii Bitterworth a warm nost
bad been ready, and every one had predicted
fun immense succes.
li swas a cnntry church also, but it was
a rich one, and he had friends and influences
and everything, which I had not. Deacon
Oiinstead showed that he knew this by eve
ry glance of Ins eye and every tone of his
But Rose Olmstead, who—her father be
Ing a minister— was mistress of the house. 1
exhibited no partiality. On the contrary,
I thirk she liked me best; and though Ben
jamin Bitterworth, long and lank, leaned
across the table to talk to her in his oily
tones over and over again, somehow she al
ways returned to our old conversation as
often as she could, and made mo very happy
with her girlish prattle.
She knew the village which had been my
boyhood's home, and had seen and spoken to
a sister f mine, dead years before; so we
found many subjects in common But even
had we had none—had we spoken in differ
ent language, unintelligible to each other—l
am sure that to have sat boside Rose O l,m
stead, with her eyes lot king into mine—not
bolkly, only frankly —would have been worth
the most eloquent words that ever lell from
any other woman's lips.
It was a very pleasant evening, for after
wards, in the gloaming, we went out upon
the porch, and she took me down to see the
1 roses in the garden and the honey-suckle
arbor over the little seat where -6he sat eve
rp afternoon at work, and we stayed s6 long
that Deacon Olmstead came down after us
and sedded Rose for wetting her feet in the
dew, and had something of great moment to
say to me, so that Benjamin Bitterworth
offered his arm to Rose to escort Imr through
the garden, while I walked behind with her
We went back to the porch after that and
to the parlor' and soon there were family
prayers and a gecia! good-night. But it
beirg a hi tght summer eventrg, with all the
windows ' pen, I sitting at mine, and looking
at the moon, heard some one sngiing, and
knew tha", of all the household, it Could only
he Rose. It was a sad song and a sweet one
—a farewell, a plaintive fall in it that was
-very touching, and I knelt beside my window
and with my head upon my hand shed tears
thinking what if 1 were that departing lover,
and Rose Olmstead sang that farewell song
to me. Do we never unc msciouajy reach
the fumre ? Sometimes I think so.
As we walked away to take the stage the
nexi morning. Benjamin Bitterworth wore a
1 queer t-mile upon his face, and rubbed h's
long black gloves as though something pleas
ed hnn mightily At last he said to me in
hisoily tones, with a peculiar affectation of
* accent which it had pleased him to adopt:
"Brother Dove, I want to ask your opinion
on an important subject."
This was odd. My opinion had never
been considered of any importance before,
but I bowed my head and waited.
"Do you believe, brother Doue, that Rose
Olmstead would make a good clergyman's
That was the question. My cheeks flush
ed scarlet. My heart beat loudly, but I turn
ed toward Benjamin and looked him full in
' I know she would make a good wife for
any man whomight be fortunate enough to
win her love," I answered.
"Lovt-!" Benjamin Bitterworth elevated
his eyebrows. "We were not speaking of
love, I believe," he said, "but of Gtneso* We
should put the vanities of this carnal world
out of the question when we look for wives,
"I believe that she would be admirably
fitted for the position," he said, "and I in
tend to act upon the belief. I have been re
solved to marry lor several years, and Dea
con Olmstead's daughter appears to have
excellent qualities—l shall offer her my
"Perhaps she will not accept."
I said it angrily. My voice was not un
der my control at that moment. Benjamin
Bitterwurth understood me- -I saw that in
his cold, black eye. But he answered with
"Her father would decide that, I think.—
He .s a man of judgment, and she is an obe
"Perhaps she might choose for herself," 1
"Perhaps," said Benjamin, "but I think
she has been brought up well,"
"You may have rivals," 1 continued.
"ft is not consistent with my cloth to be
any man's rival," replied Benjamin. '"What

We said no more, hut went on toward the
*tage, he treading softly along the road on
the tips of his polished boots, his thin lips
saT:ctimoniou>|y pressed togetner, his black
gloved hands folded behind his back, while I
warm and angry, put a strong restraint up
on myself to walk beside him decriously.
Afier this day we met only under Deacon
Olmstead's roof, hut we met there often. 1
went thither to see Rosa. I made no dis
guise of the fact. He, Benjamin Bitterworth
at aloof, talking to her father, as a general
thing, and then only, as it seemed, to prove
Ins power, In whatever he did in this way,
he was aided and abetted by old Deacon
Olmstead. I could ee that plainly. Bui I
saw also that Rose began to like me very
much. Iu that 1 trusted, for, though a stern
parent, Deacon Olmstead seemed to love his
daughter- Summer faded, and the roses to
my darling's garden died with it. At last I
spoke to her saying something like this :
"I love you, Rose—l think I love you
more than man ever loven woman. Can you
( love tne well enough to he my wife ?"
And the golden curls sank low upon my
shdulder, and 1 gathered my darling up
against my heart. We were in the garden
then, beside a great elm, older than the old
House itself, aud sheltered by it, we slood
together, I supporting her ; she leaning on
my breast j and vre saw nothing save each
other's faces, and heard nothiug save each
other's voices ; and I took the little hand in
mine, and slipped a tiny ring upon the taper
finget—one tfiat had been inr mother's be

she had given me, bidding me to give it to

from me but I would not let her go.
''She has promised to be my wife, sir," 1
said, '"Give u your blessing. You will give

could not read its import; but he drew his
daughter toward him and 6tood between us.
"You have done wrong, Mr. Dove," he
said, "very wrong. She is young, and has
but lit'Je judgment. 1 will speak to her
alone, 1 should have spoken to her before,
bat 1 thought one of your profession could
be trusted. Good evening. Come Rose."
And be passed i; to the house, taking her
with bun; and as 1 left the garden, 1 saw

and folded hands, making his way along the
The next day a boy came to my study
with a note. It was from Deacon Olmstead,
and summoned me to his dwelling. 1 went
at once, and in the parlor found Rose, pa!
as a lilly, silting bsside her father. Shee
looked at me as 1 came in, for one moment,
and then turned her face aside, and hid it
with her hands. Her lather spoke to her.
"Were you older, Mr. Dove, 1 might he
harsher, but 1 regard you both as very in
nocent and very inexperienced. Had I
knnwn this baby-play of courtship was going
on, it should have been stopped before. It
is not too late now. Rose sees her folly—
She his resolved to obey me. Some trifle of

yours—a ring, 1 believe—she will return ta
you, ami then yon will part.
Rose left her seat aa he turned toward her
and crossing the room, calmly and sadly laid
the betrothal ring in my haid.
"Good-by," she said : "I must obey papa
It is all over between us. Good bye, Wil
But 1 could not be so calm. 1 caught her
band and turned toward the stern old man
with his iron face.
"Do you remember your own youth ?" 1
cried. "Do you know what you are do
And he answered, "My duty, 1 hope. 1
shall endeavor to secure the best interests of
my daughter. Ycu will cease to urge the
point when you hear that she is to marry
the Rev. Dr. Benjamin Bitterworth a week
from next Sunday."
"Marry him ! " 1 cried. "Rose have you
consented to this I Are you false to me ?
He checked me with a solemn wave of the
" You have done your best to fill mv
daughter's head with folly," he said, "but
you have not succeeded. She has chosen for
her protector one of mature judgement, and 1
am glad of it."
"Rose," 1 cried, "is this true ? Have you,
of your own will chosen him ?"
"My father has commanded me," was the
answer, "and 1 must obey."
1 turned from her, and fled from the room
and the house, mad and blind with grief and
"She is not what 1 thought her," 1 said
"She has been won by gold. My property
has lost her to me." •
Yet 1 loved her still, and the world seemed
dark and desolate. 1 had wild thoughts of
wandering away and hiding myself from the
eye of mortal man, and was thankful that
excitement made me rea'ly so ill that on Sun
day of the wedding 1 had ample excuse for
deserting my pulpit, and, having procured a
substitute spending the day in my own room
This at least was my intention, but,as the
hours crept on, an influence which 1 found it
impossible to resist urged me to leave the
house and go across the fields, and through
the village co the church where Rose was to
he married, aDd witness the ceremony. 1
think 1 was feverish—almost delirious.—
Surely, wise judgement would have led me to
any other spot in the universe. But 1 went.
It was a winter day, and the 6now lav
thickly on the country path 1 trod. It
whitened the roofs and clung to the tall
spire, from which the bell rang clear and
sharp, upon the frosty air, 1 listened to it.
"Sorely," 1 said, "some awkward hand is at
the rope ; it is more like the peal tolled for
the dead than that rung for a merry wed
ding." But this might have been my fancy
for everything looked dark to me that day.
1 knew this was so, for as 1 sat in sheltered
spot on the gallery looking down, those who
came in seemed to wear sad countenances
and to exchange mournful whispers,— yet
still the thought that it wus more like afu
neral of my brightest hopes, of every mour
ful dream which 1 have cherished."
Then there was a whisper— a stir. The
bride was coming, 1 should see her again.
Could 1 bear it ? 1 strained my eyes. How
slowly thev eame, how gravely heads were
bent ; and they were dressed in black every
one of them. Was 1 going mad ? 1 saw
old Deacon Olmstead ; 1 saw Benjamin Bit
terworth. And what was this? O merci
ful Heaven ! tho bride was coming, not in
bridal wreath and veil blushing and beauti
ul, but cold and white as marble, lying be
neath that sable pall, motionless, sightless,
dead to wor Is of earthly love for evermore.
Rose Olmstead was dead.
They who lifted me from the floor, where
I had fallen, told me that she had died the
night before ; that she had been failing for
the last few days ; and that on that night
she had risen and knelt down to pray, it was
believed, for they found her kneeling with
her face upon her hands, quite dead. -'Her
heart is broken," the doctors said and 1 be
I was very ill after this so ill that they
feared 1 must die. But Death chose those
who were happier, and left me. 1 dwell now
in the same old place, where 1 can sit beside
my darling's grave in the twilight of the
Sabbath eve, —an old man, weary with the
weight of years. Yet 1 shall be young again
sometime—young and happy in Heaven with
my lost one.

of them at their posts in the latter depart-*
ment, and cannot help thinking some hardtP
taskmaster than the government is needbd
to teach them what free labor Is. Appa

crack of the overseer's whip that, mtssing it,
they know,no higher duty than to take their
ease in idleness. Unfortunately their whitn

During the two hours your correspondent
was in the grounds, not during the "nooning"
recess, he saw some hundreds of laborers,
but not a single stroke of work done. Whitn
and black fraternized in idleness, and aat
quietly under the trees, chattering, sleeping,
playing games with each other, seemingly
fancying that it is for this the government
pays them wages.

How we Liost Richmond
By refusing fo adopt th" "Crittenden
Compromise" of 1860-1. It would have cost
ne'ther money nsr blood, only a little ink,, a
little paper, and a little sacrifice of party
platform and partizan bitterness, to hive
lIOW WE RE-TOOK RICHMOND.
By four years of horrible war, by shedding
rivers of blood ; by sacrificing .a million o
lives ; by levying a tax of §400,000,000 and
accumulating a debt of $4,000,000,000, To
this add the material ruin of large parts of
the South, and the impending bankruptcy
and commercial ruin of the North, and tben
the general demoralization of both sections,
and you have some idea of the cost. The
time is not far distant when these things
will be inquired into. Who are to ba tha
men of the future—the mon who were for
peace and conciliation, or the men who were
for "a little blood-letting ?" Judge ye.
