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 ber coardian. Bjt tha woman’t face is not at ita best now ; a caraworn look and a laint wrinkle upon tha pale fore head age her acd lenen the charm ol her fenturrs. 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.” * She is csprcted, uf course, to day?" “Of course,’’ “TheruVa vessel coming in now. I see the tall masts. L'lok I L)ok I" poiutiog out of the office window to the river fron*. “Maybe that’s it I Kilie, dear, (onk I there’s father’s vessel, with father on board I” The child clasps ber little hands at the sight. “Sorry to say that ain’t it, ma’am,” says the clerk, relapsing into his cal- culatious and paying no mure attention t ) the woman, S^ie stares out of the open window at the opproac'iinj vessel drawu by a tu^, and then with a blanii look upon her fuco aud a moan that is heart-rending, 8a\s; “No, Eilic, no I That is not the Good L'Jck. I tee tiie figure-head. The ure-h^ of the Good Luck is an ongel —ii/imte and gold angel. Nul no I that isn’t it.” But papa will soon come home, won’t he, maoimai'” whispered the child. 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, won’t yon?” "Ye*, dear.” 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 clickety. click I g >et the magic instru' ment, repeating its dot and dash mes' sage. Hear that?” says the operator, That** news for you 1” The proprietor could read every word by it s nind. “It’s like it messsge from God I” said Mr, Tawmao, reverently. “I must not tell her,” lie comm back to where U ewomaa it slUtng t hit face la flushed wltb eoie- tion aa*e atranga eaciteaent. He throwt lato ber lap a bundle of bank notea. “Tbice^ tin,) SMIMiv do* g« bona. Take a'car at the door." “Oh, I’m not tired. And I tbould like to bo here when the brig oomet in. I tbank you ao nucb, to moch.” “Here, little obf,” taya the good- hearted Tawman, “bera’t tomethlng for you to"buy oaqdiea witb.” Re pstt into ber liny nulitretched hand a bright quarter of a dollar, and laughs at the wonder and delight of the little recip ient. “I'll keep tbii for my p*pa.” Poor little thing, the is weary onto sleep. She cuddlet herself in the big chair, and liakt into a tlaaber in an la- stant. ■ Now, Ii(ra. Shelter, jou’fe bad no dinner,” saya Tawmao. “Ob, ye», sir.” “Yesterday, perhaps, but I mean to day. Go down with Mr. Pelton, there, our yoimg man, and get tomathing tn eat. You tee wa have arrangomonts 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 says: Now you had better go. I’ll tee to the child, and bring ber up with me to- iiighl.” Nol nol” exclaiocd the mother, “I most have my ICllie with me always, sir. You are very good, though, sil'; to very good I And is there no newt of the Good Luck?” Nul a word. I’m torry to tay,” 'It can't be potsible. The brig must come ia to>day.” I’m aare I hope au, with all my heart and foul, Mrs Shelter.” I know you do,” ahu responds with a sigh. Now go. I’oi torry you have to waken the child, but I suppose you cau’t help it.” “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 yet?" “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, and says: “I’aa torry the brig i«n’t ia yet.” ••Will it be ill t i-day r” “I hope so/' And he goet behind his de>k and'iooks over bis iettcrt. He has not long been engaged iu bis cor respondence when a isream from the woman attracts bin. She has risen, and la- pdlutiag- esollMly^oM'iir the window, ■ Here is a ship coming in! Loukl look 1’ ' Tbat’a not it,” aayt a clerk; "tbai't a schooner.” Oh, no I” adds Mr, Tawmao. “Thai's not the Good L'luk 1” “It ia I It is 1” She darts from the ef. fijc, dragging the child after her, runs across the bustKiig wbarf out to the very edge of the water. Mr. Tawman. rushes to the window, opens it and calls to her. To no purpose, however. All the clerks clukter about the window lu watch her. '■The woman ia mad 1” sayt one. “She is gning to drown bersell.” Tawman sayt quietly to tbe telegrapb operator: ••Il’a the Mary.” Tbe acboooer ia being towed np tbe river by • tag. She ia making prepa- ratioat to ancber in tb« ttream oppo site the wharf. All Ibia time Mr*. Shel ter is standing in the midit of a crowd of eicited people waving ber htbdker- chief, and the little girl it waving hers. “Look I look there I There’* a mao ovcrtoard!” cried one of tbe clerks. A err of alarm goat up from tbe wharf. “Reaveas I” Mclaiaad Mr. Tawiiao, tboraughly aroused. “What doM that ■•anf” '•H it iwloiBtag like a flab I" m|i a clerk. “He hat landed I” Hark at tha eheert I Look 1 look 1” tbout tha oper- f tors. “She it hogging bim; to It tbe little girl, It't Captain Shelter!” “Thank Qndl” eiclalnad Tawman. "And pray beavea tha may nut tink under the thock. Poor woman. How theclingtto tha drenched maul Dear dear I” Then he putt on hit bat and ruas down the tlept like a boy, and dartt ofer tn where bntbacd and wife aud child are united and happy. “Ah I” he eiclalmed, thaking the cap* tain by the hand, aod not caring for the gaping and wondering crowd ail around him; ' tbit it good luck, itu’t it eh? Did you get my telegrami” When the man can speak be aoiwert: • Yes.” “I planned it all I" chattera old Taw man. ■ You see I got a dispatch yes terday from tbe Breakwater, laying Captain Shelter had been picked up oo a raft by the schooner Mary. I to'.d ber in the car yeitcrday that the brig would c^ime in, and come iu it did. Over to the AlBcf, eiory oi e of you, atid after dinner and dry-clothes. Cap, wb’ii have a talk about butinest. Oome on.” GENERAL f.7.*jACKS0N. 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 house—a place that will remain forever fatuous, not as the scene of triumph for the iuvailer with his untold legions, but as the Ecene of tho struggle of that great heart and that great mind which mind which so rcliictantly surrendered the siaall remriai t of less than nine thousaiid of the Army of Northern Vir ginia with arms in their hands. “Oenerni Jacks->n did eanu^h to estabruh his reputation on an enduring foundation as one of the greatest soldiers, heroes, patriots, aod Christians, ever produced.by any country ur age Let his fame, therefore, rest on his deeds, and let not his puia i ame be co'inected with wild and absurd proposi- tiona and schemes, either for the pur* pase of adding to his glory or obscuring that of any of his cotnpcers. Who Is it that claims to have known bis secret thoughts and purposes? If be had any fault as a commander it was bis extreme reticence, that often left bit immediate subordinates in ignorance of hla pur poses until they were called to act. Was it liki'ly that straogers to him per sonally should know more of bis views than those who ioimediutcly surrounded him ? Tbe wild schemes with which his aame to aoaiatiaics ident*fled are calcu. lated to do an much damage to his char, acter as a soldier as some of the ex aggerated accounts in regard to bis religious devotions and opinion are calculated to do to the earnest, truthful, oad seotless nature of bis Christian cbarhcter.” Two mta bad baao fatt Maaia.

Trade MOnOES TO BE STUCK IN THE HAT. Read your cnuoly papor. Never “fool” in businett. Be vigilant.' .Pay as you go. It money. Never lie to your partner in bntlneif, or wrong him out of a cent. Learn to think and act for yourtalf in all thingt that are honest. Do not kick every stone In the path. Do not stop to tell sterlet in butinet* hi'ura Pay strict attention to your own alTairt, Keep ahead rather than behind tbe tiinet. Have but few confidenlt, and the fewer the better. Use your own brains, rather than thate of othera. A man of boner retpectt bit word at ho doflt hit bond. No man can get rich who lounget in ttoret and salouns. If you have a place of business, be found there when wanted or In buticess hourt. He who geeks to build his reputation on the weakness of another bat an unsafe foundation. Learn tn say “no,” No neceasity of snapping it dog-fashlon, but tay it re spectfully, as you ought to. Help others when you can, but never give what you cannot aflTurd to, aimply because it is fashionable. Never boy an article you do not nntd simply because it it cheap, and the man who sells it will take it out iu trade. Never put on airt with four partner and cry out “I do the most,” when you know he is the “main-stay” of the busi- ncbs at his own lost. A DRUNKEN WAOER ENDS iN DEATH. Cichia Lenshurg, of Le Suer county, Minnesota, while on a drunken spree, undertook to swallow tbe glass con* taioed in a whisky flisk. The glass was pulverized, and he swailowrd it mixed with a tallow candle. The next day be began to feel the effects of tba un natural fuod and to writhe and acream in agouT as the glass cut into his vitals.

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 A colored witness wat examined in a Wasbipgton City Court to prove the identity of a white man tha nther day.
