'Who i" that deacon?'
Mrs. La Rose, seated in the Jersey
'carryall,' that belonged to 'The
Deacon Ilarland Place,' looked across
the fertile fields of her old friend's
tann, and fixed her ces with a cer
tain imprest on the tall, well-developed
young man who was coming
down the lane, leading a handsome
colt by the forplock, while the colt
rubbed his velvety nose affectionate
ly against hi master's shoulder, and
licked his hand.
'That i my son .Toe. Mrs. La Rose
my only child,' leplicd the farmer.
'How much he i like you. as you
weie in your ISth year, when I came
from teaching school to visit jour
sister Hetty, at Hip old place in Xew
Hampshire!' aid the fasbionuble
widow, oppaking for once without

The ilcaeon looked unenily at her
anil then at her lovely IG-ycar-olil

beside hi hired man, who wa driv
ing the party homo from the railway
station at Kllintown.
In his 18th year, a poor farmer's
son, ho hiid been this woman's lover.
Xow, in hisoth year, the wealthy
proprietor of a most valuable and
extensive fiuit farm in New Jersey,
he was troth-plighted to his old
love's beautiful daughter, and she
was coming, with her mother, to pay
her first visit to her tuture home.
The worthy man was not deceived.
Jle knew that this lovely child did
not love him. Fie fully understood
that she was about to wed him at
the entreaty of her mother, and in
the hope of securing lor that mother
the wealth, the freedom from all
pecuniary care, and the luxurious
life and home, which she had never
All these things he meant to secure
to her. In return, he hoped and be
lieved that she would learn in time
to love him. Gratitude would suie
ly teach her that lesson, since (as her
mother declared) she loved no one
But it would be fatal to herhopes
to let her gain the least knowledge
of the early love that had existed
between her mother and himself.
Aud he blessed his lucky stais,
when his matched chestnn's. scent
ing their stable, and seeing Joe's bay
colt piancing beside his master in
the lane, broke into a run that tested
the strength and skill of Mike, the
driver, and frightened the widow
entirely out of all her reminiscences
by the time they condescended to
pause before the verandah step-.
Joe Ilarland viewed the arrival

had managed the allairp of the house

lady guests from Xew York. And
she, as well as Joseph, had supposed
the elegant widow to be the bi ide
olect. In the old days on the home-farm
in Xew Hampshire, this sister had
been the Hetty whom Julia Carlyon
had visited. And, knowing so much
of the early love affair, she naturally
supposed that it was now about to
Mistress Hetty welcomed the
mother and the daughter very cor
dially to Harland's, deeming it well
that she should keep on the best of
terms with its future mistress.
Joseph did not appear until the
late tea which was ordered in com
pliment to the tiavelers was on the
table. Then he came forward at his
father's request, was introduced to
the guests, made two sulky bows,
and studied his future step-mother's
face during the whole meal, from
under a pair of heavy black eye
brows, with a pair of deep blue eyes.
He scarcely looked at little Esther,
who sat beside him.
But she stole mauy ashy sidelong
glance at him wondering why he
looked so stern--wondering why he
was so silent wondering if his
father really had been so handsome
at IS years of age. Trying to imag
iue the gray-headed deacon a tall,
erect figure, with dark-blue eyes,
and jet-black hair, and a frank,
handsome face, with sun-burned,
crimson cheeks, and a forehead white
as snow trying, but failing misera
bly ! And, then wondering again
whether the deacon, at IS, had not
been more agreeable as a lover than
he was now at 55.
'If only ' thought little Esther,
glancing once more, musinglv.at the
voting man and the old.
And then she blushed hotly all i
over her beautiful face. Tor the I
young man had turned toward her
to offer her a slice of golden honey
comb, and his dark-blue eyes seemed
to read the thought of which she i
was but half-conscious herself, until i
he looked at her.
'Whv did she blush like that ?' was
Joe's first thought. And his second
was, 'What a lovely little creatine!
she is! I must try and make this
place enduinble to her, while our
elders are making geese of them
selves by fancying that, at (heir fuje.
they can fall in love!'
From that very evening, the fun
niest kind of a 'Comedy of Krrors'
began in the tlirland house.
The deacon was forever finding
Joe in hi way when he wished to
say sweet things to his prospective

Joe saw her that very evening, as
he was coming home from the vil
lage with his colt and buck-board.
Her mother's lecture was not yet
one hour old ; and Esther was cry
ing, down under the maple tree in
the lane, so that she did not see ,loe,
till he had fastened the colt to the
next tree, and was kneeling down
beside her, asking in the kindest of
of voices what had gone wrong.
Esther gave a little scream and
sprang to her feet when she saw him
there, and so very near.
'Oh, go away, please, and never
let me see yon again ! she sobbed.
'Mamma says that I have been so
very wrong and immodest, too oh,
dear, oh dear! because I have talk
ed so much to you. Oh, won't you
go and live sopiewhere else, please,
where I never shall see you? I'm
sure I never c marry jour lather,
Joe, if yon stav heie.'
'What?' shouted Joe so loudly
that the bay colt gave a tremendous
jump, and nearly broke his halter.
In five minutes he had coaxed the.
whole storv from the weeping,
'Well, of all the. However. T
won't swear about my own father!"
he exclaimed. 'Now, Esther, this
musn't go on another hour, you
know. It is abominable noiisoiHel'

think of my being votir mother-in-law.'
'Yon can be something better than
that, darling, if you'll be guided by
me,'taid Joe, as his arm stole around
her waist, and his bearded cheek
rested against her emooth one.
They talked long and earnestlv in
that shaded lane, while the voting
moon rose, and the bay coll listened.
with his head over Joe's shoulder,
and looked remarkably wise.
Finally, the colt and the buck
board were turned toward Ellin
town once more, and the eight-day
clock :n the deacon's hall was on the
stroke of fl when they returned.
In the lane they met the deacon,
driving the widow in his one-horse
chaise, drawn by the sorrel mare.
They had missed Esther and Joe
at last, and were just setting out to
search for them.
'Esther, leave that disgraced car
riage at once, and come home with
us!' cried the widow, as she caught
sight of the buck-board and its
double freight. 'How dare you ?
As for you, Mr. Joe'
'As for me, Mrs. La Rose, Esthor
is my wife, aud you must not speak
to her unless you speak kindly,' said
Joe. 'We were married by Parson

Joe drove on toward home with
out another word.
The widow gasped for breath ;
the deacon turned pale, then grew
red with anger.
'Oh, hush I' cried the widow, as
'unparliamentary' words poured by
the dozen from his lips. 'Perhaps
he was only joking. You might go
to Parson Willis and see.'
'Joe never jokes. He has taken
the girl from me, and I shall be the
laughing-stock of the co'untry,' stut
tered the deacon, who was quite
wild with rage 'unless '

Mr. Hendricks told the democrat
ic Indiannpolitans, on Monday even
ing, that General Hancock was sent
t0 Louisiana and Texas during the
ever occupied the white house.
That was the purpose for which
General Hancock was sent to take
command in Louisiana and Texi,
and his success in accomplishing
that purpose is what endears him to
the hearts ol the shot-gun democ
racy. Senator McDonald also alluded to
the peculiar civil services of Gen.
Hancock in the states named. He
said : "General Hancock showed
more statesmanship in one short
order which he issued after assum
ing command at New Orleans than
General Garfield has ever shown in
his entire life.' There is some
ground for the opinion that the
statesmanship displayed in that one
short order was not so much Gen
eral Hancock's a it was Andrew
Johnson's and Jeremiah S. Black's.

The first speech that General Gar
field made in the House of Rfre
sentaUvo.s was. in reply to Alex.
Long, of Cincinnati, who advocated
the recognition of the Southern
Confederacy. In tho course of his
remarks Garfield said :
" But now, when tons- of thousands
of brave soula have gone up to God
under the shade of the Hag; when
thousands more, maimed and shat
tered in the contest, are sadly await
iug the dclivcrcnce of death ; now,
when three years of terrible warfare
have raged over us, when armies
have pushed the rebellion back over
mountains and rivers, aud crowded
it into narrow limits until a roll of
fire girds it ; now, when the uplifted
hand of a magnetic people is about
to hurl the bolts of conquering pow
er upon the rebellion ; now, in the
quiet of this hall, hatched in the
lowest depths of a similar dark trea
son, there rises a Benedit Arnold
and proposes to surrender up all,
body and spirit, the nation and the
flag, its genius and its honor, now
and forever, to the accursed traitora
of our country ! And that proposi
tion comes God forgive and pity
my beloved State it comes from a
citi.en of the timc-houored and loyal
Commonwealth of Ohio. I implore
you brethren, in this house, to be
lieve Mint not many births ever gave
pangs to my mother State such as
she suffered when that traitor was
born. I beg you not to believe that
on the soil of Mint State another such
growth has ever deformed the face
of natuie and darkened the light of
G oil's dav."
fn 1861 the Democratic party
thought it wrong to coerce the se
ceding states. In 1S2 the northern
wing ot that pnr'y found fault be
cause the war was not pushed with
more vigor. In 1S54 they declared
the war for the preservation of the
union a failure and demanded peace
at any price. In 1S3 they rejoiced
at the success accomplished by the
war and denounced the party that
was main! instrumental in crush
ing the rebellion. In 1S0S they tried
in vain to defeat the constitutional
amendment?. In IS70 they accepted
and approved them. In ISSO they
"pledge themselves anew to the
constitutional doctrines aud tradi
tions ot the Democratic party."
That is, they arc for and against
permitting secession of statps at
their pleasure: for and against war
for the preservation of the. Union ;
opposed to and in favor of the con
stitutional amendments miking all
men free and equal ; in favor of and
opposed to the resumption act. In
short, that party, ever since the war.

any regard to honest convictions.
Only on one point is the party
agreed, and that is that they want to
get hold of the reins of the govern
ment that the solid Democratic
South tried to destroy. They are
loyal in the North, Confederates in
the South, and anything for voles.

and have nearly reached Norfolk.
It now look' as if there was no com

there is an understanding between
the St. Paul and B. & M. But it is

A fanner, himself a democrat,
surprised one of his democratic
friends a few days since, by saying:
"I am going to vote for Garfield,
sir. I just found out the other day
that the Republican party gave me
rny homestead. You needn't say a
word. I have always voted the
democratic ticket but I am going to
vote now with the party that gav
me my homestead." Tho woods and
the prairies arc full of men who will
vote in the same way. SwMoi
