WHEN THE SHIP CONIES.
A iweet-raced woman and a tweet-
faced child aie wandering among the
decki of ilie |reat city, Tha woinaa ii
plaiuljr dreiied, but afideotly in htr
best attire, and there it a touch of gen
tility In her fioery, In tha real collar—
relici of bcttiir days, perhaps—tha pearl
ear-ringa and the neat glovca. The
child ii neatly dretsed, too, and, as ihe
(laipt the wosaaii’a hand, looks lote at

She is inquiring of Iho dockaicn, of
stevedores, uf the loungers about the
whsrte*, whether tba brig Guod L'ick
had come in. She always reccires the
same rrp'y tn her eager q'i«>ti»n, for
the brig Good lijck has been lost a
month ago, dashed on a lee shore and
eroa'd ti> picces by the tea, and will
no'or como in—'oever—aever mure.
ir they told ber, abe wouldn't believe
them, for tho womai »nd ber child have
supreme fuitb that the brig Qoud L'jck
will come in soon with csrgo and crew,
bough they hava been askiug the sane
quettioD and making tho iBtoe prayer
fur many and many u day.
Then she goes across the ttreet and
winds her aay along the bales and
boxes and passing carts, and through all
the hubbub acd bluUer of the wharf,
and elimbs a flight of stairs to where
the brig owners have their office. They
are used to seeing ber. They smile
sadly when she enters with the child,
and look signiftcantly at one another,
as much aa to say: “Poor thing I she’s
mad. No wonder 1 no wonder 1”
Mad I Yes, she is mad with “hope
deferred,” with anxiety to meet her hus
band, Guleb Shelter, master of the brig
Guod Lutk—to meet the master of the
brig, her husband and Mia father of her
child. Why daci be stay anay (rom
her so long?
Ij the Good Ljck !o yet?” the asks
of a clerk.
“Not yet, ma’am.”

that isn’t it.”
But papa will soon come home,
won’t he, maoimai'” whispered the
Old Mr, Tawman, who is at tha head
of the establishment here, now euaie%
from behind his dcbk, and, approaching
the woman, says in a kindly tune:
Mrs, Shelter, sit down: make your-
self !ts comfortuble at you can in a
dingy office like this. Here little O'le,
come here; gi'e me a kiss. A blight
pretty little dear, Mrs. Slic'er."
“She looks pale,” said the mother.
She is tjred; she has been walking too
inuchl” The old gentleaian sits down,
and lifts the little ijirl on his* knee and
kisses her. She wind* her arms about
bis neck and exclaims :
You tell my papa to cone iood,
It was the habit of this firm to pay a
aort of pel aion monthly to the windows
of captains who were lost in their aer,
vice. It was not much of a stipend,
being only half.pay, but it was certainly
a blessing io very many cases. Mrs.
Shelter had always received her bus-
band’s money here while he was it sea,
or it was sent to ber when the ^ was sick
or tha wea ther was bad.
“Ah, Mr. Tawman, I’m sure the
Good Luck will bn io to-day,”
“Certainly it will. What'* to binder
it?” he answers.
He puts the child down aod goes over
to hie desk, and, unlocking his drawer,
be takes an account book aud begins
writing a receipt; then goes over to the
cashicr’s room. While he is there the
telegraph clerk calls him over. Click

“Ob, ye», sir.”
“Yesterday, perhaps, but I mean to

our yoimg man, and get tomathing tn

for ibe comfort of our clerks. We give
thant a hot dinner, and a good dinner,
too. There't nobody there.”
“Qo down there and ask the waiter,
George,” addressing Mr. I’vlton, whom
he bad summoned, “to give this good
lady a cup of tea and a piece of toast,
some chicheo, aud ail that.” Then
pausing a moment, aa if propriety and
ihilantbropy are struggling for masterT
in his mind, ‘'No, no, George, tell
Ilciidertnn to tend the din-ier up into
the room here; that's better.” The
young man leavei the room. Then
Mr. Tawman enters the telegraph office
again aud consults the operator.
“Seud this message at once, Mr.
LiaJsay, if you ©lease,” He wriiet
sumetbing, and the operator clicks it oflf
at once. It’s a long message—a vcr*
long message indeed—but Ihe Prrti-
deiil’a messagi', itself is not half to im
portant, so interesting to those whan it
concerns. Then, by the lima the mes
sage is srnt, the dinner it ready in Mr,
Tawnian's private offise, when Mrs.
Shslter partakes of it, but dues not think
proper to waken the weary child, that
she may eat also. Then Mr. Tawman

“Come, Ellie,” says Ihe mother,
tonchiiig her lightly on the shauldir.
The child, with a atart, awakens, and
cries, “Is it oiy papa, dear, dear papa?”
Then, seeing her disappulutmeot, she
burst into teari. ,
Don’t cry, dear, don’t cry I The bris
will come in. Don’t cry I. Dou’i cry 1”
The good old man spenks soothiHgly tn
the subbing child; and the muthor,
catching hur hand, waiiis slowly u"d
sadly nway, fijllowed' by Mr. Tawman,
who lifts the little girl down and helps
both her and her mother into a car.
Tho next morning . tho mother is
again loitering about the dock with the
same agnwized inqniry. She again puts
ihe qoestion to the wharfmen, and
Biiaiii only receives the same answer.
Then, as bHfore, sbe seeki the ulHce of
the owners, still nccompanicd by the
little girl, and asks:
II as the brig Good L'ick come in
“Not yet, ma’am.”
She aighs, and looks onl Ihe window
at the shipping. She says the will wait
for Mr. Tawman, and sitj down. When
Mr. Tawman comes in ns usual ha greets
her very kindly, aad kisses the little girl,

Gen. Jubal Karly, in a noble Utter to
Iho Savannah News, refutes the state
ments of Mr, Pollard in regard to
Geoeral Lee and Goooral Jackson,
His remarks then close with the follow
ing paragrap, which no true soldier can
read without emotion:
“There ii another rcasan, which to
me is a nit St potent one, and that is
because I know that the boldest man in
his strategic movements 4ud hit tactics
on the Held of battle in all the Army
of Northern Virginia, Stonewall Jack
son not cieepted, was General R ibert
K. Lee. Yus, under that calm and
digniflttd exterior Ihcro beat ouo of the
boldest hearts and dwelt one of tbe
most daring minds that ever inspired the
commander of an army. He required
no council of war to urge bim \o deeds
of boldness, and I never heard of a
council uf war dariug tho whole history
of that army under his command. It is
true that be often conferred with his
corps commanders, and sometimes witb
Kubordinatrs entrusted witb special
duties, but it was not to cateh inspira
tion from their counsels, but, to instil
into them a portion of his own darii^g
spirit. General Jackson had his onfi-
deoco in a prc-enilnent degree because
lie «ns always ready to ticcnnd with
alacrity the plan of tho commanding
General; and no one felt the loss of that
invaluable lieutenant mure than General
Lee hiinseir did.
“To satisfy any ono of what I say iu
regard to General Lee it is only neces
sary for him to examine tho yet un
written history of tlmt unparnieiled
campaign from tho Itapidan tn the
James, of the operations on the lino of
defences around Kichmoud at:d Peters
burg, and uf tbe retreat for more than a
hundred milet to Appomatos Court

fatuous, not as the scene of triumph for
the iuvailer with his untold legions, but
as the Ecene of tho struggle of that

RESPECTABIIITY OF AGRICULTURE.
A clergyman once tail to me, “Will
farming ever be considered more res
pectable than now?” My antwer wat,
“Nv>.” Farming is highly honored, when
we consider that from it flows all the
calls for artisans of every name to tup-
ply the real or imaginary wanta of all
mankind. Heaven, as a state, whether
it relates to the present or the hereafter,
consists mainly in tbe beautiful. Adam
was to dress the garden, which meant
to make It Ipuk well, and nt tha tasse
time it would be useful. How is it to
day ? A beautiful garden attraata vlait
or* from all the surrouading country.
No less does an exteusiva farm, made
beautiful by the diligent hard; by tbe
product of the farm, man and beast sur
vive. All other callings ara supported
by it; but to the question, “Is it more
respectable than formerly, or will it be?”
I answered, “It has always had tba pre
cedence in retpcctability.” God and.
good men in fonuer timet looked with
pleasure and delight upon aeed time
and harvest; to in tbit age, profestional
men extol tba beauliet of agriculture,
and especially every ona i^ho is looking
for a lucrative office from the honest
yeoman, as much as tn tay, your call-
log it respectable—Robert Mansfield
