'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 i"'1 0,,,li" r the sentence The ilcaeon looked unenily at her anil then at her lovely IG-ycar-olil (laughter, who sat on the trout seat, 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 yet enjoyed." 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 else. 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 with profound disapproval from afar. He had loved his mother tenderly. He resented what he consideted a I slight to her memory. Ho was ' HMniirr ttiitn lirTT Attn, HMin rlnnnnn had been a widower for more than live years, and all the widows and old maids in F.llintown had long since given up in despair trying to keep house for, and to sympathize with him. A maiden sister of the deacon's had managed the allairp of the house hold since the wife's death. She, .is well as Joseph, had been greatly surprised when the farmer had an- Triminpnfl tbo cnnnilt' comiiirr nf llm I 'v.. .... Jl'lll.J w... V, tilt 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 be renewed. 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 bride. Sister Hetty wondered why her brother took such pains unhcard-of.pains--to please his future diugh- ter-in-law, when her approval was , of no consequence whatever. j reign of King Johnsont "to further 'I wonder Julia sfmuh it! 1 oppress, subjugate, and ruin a por wouldn't, if I was in her place,' she i (j0n of the south."

I 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, trembling girl. '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' 77 it, Joe,' phe sighed. 'Only 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 Willis, at his house, at S:30 this evening.' 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 ' He paused, and looked" keenly at his companion. She was a handsome woman still. She looked tip, then down, and col- ored beneath his gnze. The dnvs of old seemed suddenly to come back to the old deacon. lie was a farm lad of IS. on the old homestead once more, and Julia Carlyon was all the world to him. 'I've been an old fool.

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. General Hancock was carefully in structed in the democratic states manship of the period in the city of Washington betore hV went to take 1 V .. r..t...,r. (In , ' command in New Orleans.

He "received mote or less encouragement from parties who believe that a saloon would bo " a cood thiiitr for the town."

Seward has learned this by bitter i exnerience and has shut down on the tralliic. Aside from all moral considerations the traffic is a curse to any community. Practical men, who take no stock in ornamental temperance organizations, which meet too often merely to have a jood time, stand ready to denounce and oppose the proposition to grant "How could any hoss run. so I phered out of the situation by out license, because they know that the . weighted," yelled Wallace, in a rage, j 9iders.

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.

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.

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 Heaisler.
