One rainy niglil, about half-pact eight 'clock, the train bad dashed iulo McKib bso's Corners, at.d the mail had been de lifered at the store and post office. John r airjKh.ii, tne postmaster, had spened the bag and counted the letters. There were, as he made out, just ten, and one was larger than the others and had a ltd seal; and then he had found that he bad left bis glasses on the newspapers in the back room, and withont bis glasses he could not read a line; and so, of course at had gone after tbem, returning to find two persons in tho store Farmer Roper icd Squire McKibben, whose ancestors Ltd given name to the place. Wet, sin t iti said Mr. fairjohn, nod- yon waul Mr. McKibben will take yon over when he goes. He passes your cor ner. Yes, wait, Mrs. Lester, cried Mr. Me Kih ben, 'I'll take yon and welcome.' But she bad answered: 'Thank yon, I don't mind walking alone and was gone. 'Keeps it np, don't suet' asked the postmaster. 'It's a shame said Mr. McKibben. 'How many yeara is it now since Les ter went oSV 'Ten,' said the postmaster. 'I know, tor it was the dav I came here. She was as prety a woman as you'd want to tee then, wasn't she ?' 'Well, yet,' said Mr. McKibben. -'Sailed in the Sphynx,' said the poet master. 'And we -all know that the Sphynx went down in that voyage, el) bauds along with her. The rent of the women put on widow's weeds, them that letter. Job was fnrnishtna his bouse- had turnip bed it, for on the morrow the wedding was to lake place. And it was night again. A month from that night, when she had come f"r the last time, as every one thought, through rain and mod to make her sadly foolish query, she was sensible at last very sensible. She had chosen the substance instead of the shad ow. And now as we said, it was night, and & wetter one than the other later, too, for Mr. Fairjohn had closed the store, and was compounding for himself what he called a 'night cap' of some fragrant liquor, warm water, lemons and soger and was supping it by the stove when there came upon his. door a feeble knock, and when being repeated, he heard il there staggered in out of the rain a drip ping figure that of Jessie Lester, the bride who was to be on the morrow. She was trembling with cold, and as he Inst husbands four in this town itself, j led her along to the fire she burst into a without their groceries, you see, said the squire. Mail's in, I see. That train came nesr running into my truck, too. Wasn't noticing the flag, and drove across jut in time to save myself. Any letters lor me 1 . I'll see, said Mr. Faiijohn. He turned to the little pile of envelopes tod turned them over in his hand like a deck of csrds. "Why there's only nine" he said.

She set up that her hus band wasn't dead, and would come back. She's kept it np ever einee; comes for his letter regular, and he was drowned along with all the rest of course, ten years ago. Me must.be thirty. Well she's changed a good deal in that time,' Yes, said the other man; bat there is my son Job wild over her yet. He's offered himself twice. He stands ready to offer himself again any day ready to be a father to heread and a good husband to her. He s better off than I bo. His mother's father left him all he had He's crazy as Job crazy, I call it. Plenty of pretty gals, aud healthy, smart widows, and he sees no one but that pale, slim little thing that's just gone ont into the mud; and she why, of course she s lost her s ;nsee or she'd have him. Works like a slave to keep herself and child. lives in a rickety shanty waiting for a drowned man to come back again. -Why, every one knows Charlie Lester was drowned in the Sphynx. There wasn't a soul saved, not one. It was in the pa pers. Now, the bottle was found with a letter in it writ by some one before the ship sunk. Aud she is waiting for him yetP 'Crazy on that point,' said the post master. "Well, poor soot, she'd only been married a week when the Sphynx sailed; that makes a difference.' 'Ob, yes,' said the farmer. Then their parcel being ready, they went out to the wagon, and Mr. Fairjohn having stared into the rainy night awhile put np his shutters and went to bed. Meanwhile, the woman plodded on through the mud. 'Walking off her disappoint- m. t ft a . tnent. she said to lierselt. It was one she should have been used to, and now the absurdity of it seemed to strike her for the first time iu all those years. ' 1 hey laugh at me. she mattered to herself.

Judge Warren says : , "No change of the incumbents of office can make our present Conslltation toler able. Persistence in the right has won all oar recent victories. The calling of a Convention is a monument it the interest of true Conservatism and I fanuot under stand that what is so manitly for the good of the people is likely to be danger ous to the party that favors it."

If a Coo vention shall assemble and restore the old Constitution as far as is consistent with the new order of things and guarding the Homestead and exemptions, the people will "rise up and call it blessed," Hon. Burgess S. Gaitber says : "Individually I should prefer that the Convention wheu convened should re adopt the State Constitution we had on the 20th of May, 1861, with the necessary amendments growing ont of the recent amendments of the Constitution of the United States and the ordinances 'in our present Constitution on the question of slavery with the addition of the homestead personal property exemptions. Judge Howard says : " The general ambiguity of the instru ment ; the uncertainty of the terms of office ; and the resultant embarrassment to the administration of justice, if the late opinion of the Attorney General be cor rect ; the establishment of all ihe Courts thereby restraining the discretionary pow er of creating and modifying Courts to meet the varying wants aud interests of the negro in a hundred owns a tract of land.

He was very pale, and took no nottco of Faiijohn, but crossing the store on be side Jessie Lester. 'Yon love that man best, even now,' he said.

Hon. John Manning says : "The Constitution was framed by men for the most part of very little experience in political affairs and still less acquainted with our coudition and wants, aud never received the free, untrarameled approval that instrument and ita utter inedaptatioa to important defects aud great superfluities of ambiguity and restrictions upon the legiss lative department, its loose and unrestrain ed power vested in the hands of the Exe alive Department have been and continue to be sources of much embarrassment in perfecting useful legislation for the coun try. Under such a Constitution wo can never hope to see our good old State de veloped into a great and glorious com monwealth such as ber natural resources entitle her to be." Mr. W. A Wright, Jndge R. S. French, Judge O. P. Mears, Mr. John L. Holmes, Colonel Robert Strange and Honorable George Davis unite in saying : "We are decidedly of the opinion that the Constitution needs to be changed in very many very material respects, and that too, right speedily. Indeed the daily experiences of six years in oar Legislative Halls, in the Courts of Justice, and in every walk in lite, shows thai it is an inseparable obstacle to good govern ment." Edward Conigland says : "The Constitution of 1868 is not adapted to the wants of the people, is i a i . .

Does Amending P What does Governor Graham say abont it. He declares : "The present Constitution of this State is an anomaly fn American institutions. It has no claim to continuance by . reason of the times in which it was composed, tbe influential character of its authors, and we may add tbe circumstances of ita adoption. It has as much application to the people of Illinois as to us. There are provisions in the Constitution insulting and degrading to the sovereignty of the State and purposely placed there." . Judge Manly ay,: "The Constitution ought to be amend ed in many material respects, and it should be done at once, as indispensibly necessary to useful legislation. There is no person in the State, it seems to me, who has the sense to form a judgement upon the sub ject at all. who, at the same time, is capa ble of freeing himself from the blinding efforts of prejudice and self interest, who does not understand and acknowledge this. Manvofit8 provisions are foreign to oar habits and modes of life, uneoitcd old names have ceased in into harmony in all its parts, securing all ' famed at the bar seldom have successors.
