My old lore whom I loved not,
Is this your triendly hand?
Tour voice, with a tremble in it
None else could understand ?
My old love whom I loved not!
After so many years, . .
Parting In sUence and In pain,
To meet with smiles not tears.
My old love whom I loved not,
Do you regret not I!
That all died out which best were dead,
All lived which could not die!
Till at toe last we meet here,
And clasp long empty hands,
Keeping our silent secret safe,
Which no one understands.
You will leave a name behind you,
A life pure, calm, and long;
But mine will fade from human ear
Like a forgotten song.
You nave lived to smile serenely
Over a grief long done:
You will die with children round your bed,
: But I shall die alone.
0 kind love, whom I loved not!
0 faithful, firm and true!
Did one friend linger hear my grave,

Could I wish one heart to hold me

in a New York paper of tnis morning

"Yes, I did.
"For what reason, may I ask?'
"Because." said he, "he has tried to
destroy my household in Washington
and now he seeks to do it here."
The Rhode Islander at this point cut
the conversation off, after inquiring if
his interlocutor had read tne W asning-
ton Daoers last winter.

hidden the whole gist of the recent

after column that has been published
about the Dart which the German pro
fessor "who understood French" took
in the row as all bosh. It is freely
charged here that the professors rela
tion to the parties principal was sim-
nl v that of a "pitiful goer-between.'
Here's a sample bit of Washington
criticism of the first dispatch which
came over the wires from Narragansett
Pier the other day-a dispatch, Dy the
wav. which bears all the ear-marks of
Conkliner's own hand:
"Oh! thats an old scandal. That's
the reason Mrs. Conkling don't live in
Washington. 'Blow his brains out?'
The great wonder in the average Wash-
insrton mind is that Sprague hasn t done
it Toner aeo. The 'extreme and irrelev
ant excitement or Mr. sprague reierrea
to means doubtless that he was drunk.
Sprague gets drunk, you know. And so
(jonKiing casually oroppea in anus

Sprague was evidently jealous and may
be drunk. That's j ust like Conkling to
'crracefullv retire when the pistol was
pointed at him. If the pistol had gone
off and killed 'Blondy (as the curly
headed, turkev-cock Senator is called in
Washington) everybody would have re
joiced at it, ior uonKiing is tne most un
nnnn lar man iu me oeuaic.
We have a good story here about Mrs
Conkling's treatment of the case. It is
related that Mrs. Conkling had come
down, to live one winter at the capital,
and had made all her preparations to do
so. when one afternoon some rare flow-
ers, with a miiet uoux mac accompan
ied them, fell into her hands. Some
stupid florist, being a 'moral man like
Thackeray's Werter, you know, sent
them to Mrs. Conkling, instead of Mrs.
Sprague, on the theory that if they were

dent in which "an eminent Senator
from a great State and the charming
j daughter of a great judge, and wife of
a ricn . uni no, tney didn't par
ticularize even as much as that.
And then, too, the reckless boldness
with which the twain carried on their
little game of love. They did not seem
to make any pretence of concealing
their billings . and cooings from the
world. The corners in the capitol Cor-,
ridors were not enough for them to hide
their heads in, but even the front seat
of the Senate gallery was known even
to the servants in the lobby as the place,
of rendezvous ior tne lady wruie ner
Senatorial "friend" paid his devoirs to
the married beauty opposite from his
conspicuous desk in the Senate cham
ber. Even the Senator's most brilliant
speeches seemed to take their color
from the admiring eyes of the lady in
the gallery. As sne tripped down the
stairs to her seat it was a frequent sight

the Senator would rig up his trip-hammer
to crack whatever walnut may be
for the moment before the Senate.
"Within the past year Mrs. Sprague's at

more frequent and her correspondence
with the Senator by means of her eyes
and the use of a pencil and paper notes
Eassing to and fro with unblushing pub

even nightly during the extra session
just closed these pranks were carried
on in the sight of galleries run oi ordi

as the gavel .fell, would always rise and
seek the gallery seat and escort the wife
of the Rhode Islander in the most lover
like way to her carriage. At 3 o'clock
in the morning at that, too.

STATEMENT FROM THE GERMAN PRO
Prof. George Liack, who is mixed up
in the sprague-uonKiing trouble, prints
a long statement in tne jfroviaence
Journal. He says that Gov. Sprague
gave him an insulting glance when tney
first met some weeks ago, and that af
terwards he improved every opportuni
ty to repeat the insult. About tne mid
dle of July Sprague chased him away
from the house, and on the 27th of that
month entered a saloon where he was
sipping beer and tried to shoot him with
a musket On Friday afternoon last
Mrs. Sprague sent Linck word to come
to her house, and on driving up in a
buggy iMr. Sprague rushed out, seized
him by the arm, giving it a good shake,
and theff rushed into the house. The
professor savs as he was not prepared
to be shot down, he urged the driver to
hurry away with him, which, he did,
putting him down in front of a saloon.
in which he barely had time to conceal
himself before Sprague appeared with
the inevitable shotgun. As he never
did anything in the world to offend Gov,
Sprague, or any member or governor
Sprague's family. Linck is forced to
conclude that Gov. Sprague is crazy.
A New York letter says: "Senator
Conkling arrived in town Monday
morning from Narragansett Pier, and
was immediately beset try tne newspa-
rer reporters, who were anxious to pro
cure from him a clearer statement of
the singular affair at the Sprague man
sion than the papers have yet published,
but the Senator had nothing to cptiipiu-
nicate. He knew nothing about tne
mysterious German teacher, who is the
reputed cause of the trouble, and knew
nothing of the motives which led Mr.
Sprague to make him the object of so
much indignation. The Senator is in
dignant at the use that has been made
ot nis name in some oi tne puousnea
reports of the affair, and more than in
timates that political hostility is at the
bottom of it. It may be added that the
whole thing is a bonne boucfie for the
gossips at the clubs, and persons; who
tkere profess to know all about it conn
ftontlv nrerlict that tha end is not vet."
dentlv predict that the end is not yet.'
The Washington Post says: "Tele
graphic information received here Mon
day night stated that Mrs. Sprague had,
in view ot the late oenavior oi er nus-
band. left him for all time, and the
opinion is freely hazarded that one and
possibly two suits ror divorce wm grow
out of last Friday's emeute."
The New Yorfc Times nas a uispatcn
to the effect that the report that Linck
was the sole cause of ; Friday's trouble
was sent out at Senator Conkling's dic
