Venice ? All ! toll me about them."
Her request was eager, but bo was
very slow to do her bidding. Possibly
bis thoughts were occupied to-oight with
other things thau Italy's fallen palaces
aud walls ; yet presently her quick ques
tionings roused him : he warmed and
spoke. There, where the light fell on
his face, illuminating each kindling line
' autent, he stood and talked to her of the
mighty cities of the south.
It was a thing tnat might hare been a
dream, so strange, unreal ; the southern
summer night and softened lights ; the
the scene so unlike the scene of borne,
and yet in tho midst of it, so calmly,
quietly mingling with it, that one home
ngure, the center star of Margaret s life.
But even he so changed. All calmed,
softened, refined ; the old dark face, dark
and irregular still, but in its whole ex
pression grown so full of harmony and
strength ; its restive pride composed, its
aggressive temper all subdued.
She listened to him as he talked, lis
tened at first with a strange thrilling
wouder of delight, then presently with a
nameless sickeuing paio. Uh ! she had
striven all these years to reach up to his
height, and he had left her in the race,
as if she had not run.
" And now, after all your European
wandering," Mrs. Carlton said, " you
bave at last corns here." '
He' answered, " Yes."
"Are you going fuither south" ? "
"No; I shall retrace -my steps now."
" But not at once, I hope ? "
" I may leave to-morrow. If not to
morrow, still as soon as possible."
Sitting in the shadow, Margaret heard,
and lifted up her head, swiftly, driveu by
the startling cry of her sharp misery.
She lit ted up her head, and her raised
Oh 1 this was no stranger's look upon
her this was no stranger's gaze sending
it3 keen light through her !
" So soon as to-morrow ? ( "Why, Mr.
. Langton, you will have seen nothiug."
"1 shall have seen what I came to see,"
" Ahr Wt'H About that I cannot
speak," she said laughing, and there was
a few momeats' pause, which was broken
presently by the sound of music coming
throMh the open door.
"That is Mrs. Travers' voice," Mrs.
Carlton said. " Mr. Langton, you must
come and hear her, she has the finest
voice I know. i)iiss iuorton, win you re
main here, pr come with U3? Tlovl had
better beta come."
She went forward towards the doof,
and Mr. Langton followed her. One mo
ment Margaret saw the two figures stand
upon the threshold ; then one went for- .
ward and the other retraced his steps.
He came back in silence, ealmly and
quietly, to the place be bad left, into
Margaret's full sight. there where she !
sat motionless, her clasped bands as he
neared her only closing their fingera still
He stood before her in silence for sev
eral moments ; theti through the distant
music, she heard his voice.
" She said I should see nothing," I
- said abruply, " She was wrong. Shall I
tell you what I have seen ? "
His eyc3 were directed towards her,hut
he did not wait for her to speak. Before
4 he could reply he spoke again. - j
" She told me to tell her about ruined
cities. There are other ruins besides
fallen stones One such," aud his voice
sank into infinite tenderness, " I have
seen to-night a temple that I left entire
fresh from God's hand."
She rose up suddenly from her seat,
and stood before him with her slight
figure erect, and with all that she had in
lier gentle pride gathered upon her
"My white face does me wrong to
night," she said. I am no ruin. I
have known sorrow, as others have ; but
do sorrow I have felt has crushed me. I
have grown to look old perhaps; but I
am not young now, even in years.
His dark face had for a moment thrown
off its mask, but all tenderness that in
word or- look had begun to appear in him,
shrank back betore her words. The pause
that came when she ceased to speak was
broken by this cold reply :
" If there has been no suffering then
my petition may be granted the more
easily. I have come a lon way," he
aid slowly, " to ask your forgiveness for
a wrong done to you long ago." He
paused for a moment, and then bis voice
grew bitter as he ended. " It will cost
you little to grant it. When the pain of
a wrong nas oeasea, we can torgive the
She had been very calm outwardly
when she had spoken, but how her hand's
were crushed together, and her ejts,
fixed on bis face, were troubled and dark.
- She stood one moment shiveriujr, then all
her love rose in wild defense, and out of
that nine years silence leapt this cry
" It has not ceased ! O, the pain baa
not ceased! " -
Her bead fell down upon her parted
hands, she hid her face upon them, and
broke with passionate hclplesssness into a
low piteous sob,
And then, as she stood there desolate,
she felt his arm circling her. round : and

tones had died way, how there flashed

Newspaper Editing. Few persons,
who have Bot been connected for any
length of time with a daily newspaper,
can be aware of tho ceasless strain upon
the capabilities of those whose duty
it ia to furnish a quota of news every
day in the year winter, spring, summer
and fall to supply the demands of the
great public ; nor can it be estimated
until it is seriously uodctaken. Bain

paragraphs must come, and must be

the portrait of an editor. The man who,
troubled with the cacoetkes scribenJi,
"takes his pen in hand" when in the
vein, ana inaiies a paragraph or a com
munication to the press, thinks, as he
complacently reads his effusion the next
morning that after all, it is no such
great work to write up a newspaper; but
let him bend down to it a year and be
obliged to furnish matter for the types
every day, and he will ' begin to feel
some charity for the editor, and instead
of iudiriDjr him harshly, rather fall to
wondering that he repeats himslf so sel

The Union Republican party of Oregon in Con
vention, makes this declaration of its principles
and policy :
1st. Unfaltering devotion to the Union, first,
last, and forever ; and unwavering fidelity to the
Constitution and its amendments, and to the laws
of our National Legislature.
2d. We wholly appro re the principals and pol
icy of the administration of President Grant, as
carrying into practical application the principles,
for which we have successfully striven. Aad we
particularly commend those points in his Inaugu
ral Address, wherein he declares " let it be un
derstood that no repudiator of one farthing of our
publie debt will be trusted in public places, and it
will go far towards strengthening a credit which
ought to be tho host in the world," and " I would
protect the law abiding citizen, whether of native
jir foreign birth, wherever his rights are preju
diced or the flag of our country floats ;" and " I
will have no policy to enforce against the will of
3d. We have confidence that the Administra
tion will wisely and fimly protect the interests
and sustain the dignity of the Nation in respect to
other nations, and especially with regard to our
just claims against Great Britain.
4th. We denounce all forms of repudiation as a
natioual crime, and the national honor requires
the payment of the publie indebtedness in the
uttermost good faith to all creditors at borne or
abroad, not only according to the letter, but the
spirit of the laws under which it was contracted.
And for this purpose, we favor a strict economy
in the Administration of tho National Govern
ment, and the application to such payment of all
surplus revenue, from whatever source derived ;
and that taxation should be equalized and reduced
as rapidly as the national faith will permit.
5tb. We make no distinction between citizens,
whether of foreign or native birth; and that we
sympathize now and ever with men of all nation
alities striving for self government.
6tb. That we are opposed to any change in our
naturalization laws which shall admit to citizen
ship any foreigners not now entitled thereto un
der said laws.
7th. We favor a judicious system of railroad
and river improvements in Oregon, in order to de
velop our resources and invite settlement of our
unoccupied territory and for this purpose insist
that Congress should make us liberal grants of
8th. We arc in favor of a tariff for revenue,
with snob, discriminations in favor of our domes
tic manufactures as will not diminish its efficiency
for the purposes of revenue.
9th. We favor universal amnesty to the people
of those States lately in rebellion, which have
been restored to full relations in the Union.
10th. We are in favor of fostering the cause of
education, and are opposed to any diversion of
tbe common School funds of this State to any
other purpose tbaa the support of common schools.
11th. We recognize in the Union Republican
party the measures and men who saved tbe Gov
ernment from destruction, and that its continu
ance in power is the only sure safeguard to na
tional peace and prosperty. And with this plat
form we appeal to the voters of Oregon for their
suffrages and support.

The Hon. Jno. E. Sanford. Insurance Commis
sioner of Massachusetts, in his Report for 1868,
speaking of Dividends in Life Insurance Compa
nies, says , " Tbe sooner such guarantees cease
to be made, and such expectations created, the
sooner Life Insurance will come to rest on its true
motive, and mon -insure their lives for security.
and not for'dividends The beet and the raosH
popular companios will then be those that prom
ise only equity, and render all that they promise,
and furnish the best security, with the most np
right and judicious management."
" By the Stock plan the full cash effect of the
premium is immediately secured to the insured,
the Company taking all. the risk. By the Mu
tual plan, the full value in insurance of the pre
mium paid, is not secured to the policy -holder,
who takes a portion of the risk himself."

THE simplicity and practicability of this new
Plow commends it favorably to tbe special
nonce ot every larmer. it possesses a decided
superiority over all other plows now in use. The
wheels are four feet in diameter, and run on the.
unplowed land. Its entire construction is in no
way complicated. Tbe plow is managed in every
manner with ease, and requires only two levers
to be nsed in mnking any alteration. Tbe supe
riority of the "Gay3' Plow will be clearly shown .
by tbe following certificate :
We, the undersigned, citizens of Linn county,
Oregon, having purchased and nsed upon our
farms tbe "Gay" Plow, hereby certify that the
same has given us entire satisfaction. Its facility
for ndju-iiug to suit the depth of furrow without
movi. g from tbe scat, is simple aud easy. We
like the plow for its draught, because tbe seme is
brought to bear directly upon tbe plow-beam in
stead of the carriage ; also, because it is strong
and durable, all except tho wood-work being con
structed of wrought iron no ca-tings are used.
Tbo wheels ruuning upon the solid land is an ad
vantage over other gang-plows, in striking off
land and in plowing, not Laving to make the nec
essary changes in the machinery,' and tbe seat is
always level, not thr wing tbe driver' forward or
sideways as in other plows. Better work and
more of it can be accomplished by tho use of this
Plow than by band.
We take pleasare in recommending the "Gay"
Plow to our brother farmers, as one having no
superior in Oregon. '
