Nkw York, April 29, . 187 6.
have closed their, mecstlugs In New
York, and have gone away to take the
rest they have fairly earned. They
have held meetings five tiroes every day
tor ten weeks, a4 have outaide of their
meetings, performed an immense amount
of labor. At each of thetfl Mr. Moody
spoke not less than half an hoar, and in
the morning and evening his sermons
were much longer. SlrSanky
more or leevery tm.ot oiricU ladeed, f
that he hai weU-wgh lort aw towb ' It
is cstnftte that a million and a halt
of people liVe heard h'em ; that fifteen
thousand have been' converted, beeids
Uie general awakening that they have,
done for the churclies, the effect of
which will be felt for years. On the last
day they made an appeal for money to
pay off Uo debt of r the .-Toting-" Mens
Christian Association, andjto tnich pur
pose that $135,000 was raised on the
spot. Tlic farewell meeting was very
aCccling, and the service very impres
sive. There : never was -such a crowd
gathered together in that vast bnikling.
Every seat was occupied, and every
inch of standing room as well, and vast
as the crowd was, not a fyarth of those
who came could squeezein. - It was a
vast, peirpiring crowd of people, all anx
ious to give the departing evangelist a
hearty and cordial Godspeed.
There is no denying that Moody and
."ankey hold the hearts of the christian
people in their hands. They can get
them to do more, to work harder, and
make more sacrifices than any two men
living. Enthusiasts themselves they
enthuse others, and by sheer work force
their ways of working upon those who,
before they knew them scoQcd at them.
In their way they are absolutely great,
and their power does not diminish.
They received during their stay in the
city over $30,000 from grateful" parents
oP-taved-sons." Tbeeo - thank-' offerings
enable them to live and prosecute their
work. Mr. Moody goes to Florida
for a few weeks, and Sankev eoes for
I his rest to bis home in Newcastle, Fa
Tliey will rent for a month, and then
open a series of meetings in Boston.
The total cost of the ten weeks meet
ings footed up to nearly $50,000- The
bnildtug will be occupied, this sum
mer, by Gilmore's band, for a series of
monster concerts.
The 1st t sensation is the vfcit of the
Emperor of Brazil, Dom Pedro, lie
came very quietly, for an emperor, and
disappointed the flunkies by absolutely
refusing to having any fuss made over
him. When this announcement was
made there was weeping and " wailing
in many circles. The politicians want
ed a chance to air themselves at a re
ception : the city officials wanted a big
dinner, at the expense of the city;
Dehnonico wanted to furnish tlie said
dinner at about three prices, dividing
with the officials ; the belles wanted a
cliauee to dance at the grand ball that
emperors are supposed to always desire,
and most .everybody wanted to have
soBttthiflg iu connection with him. But
the Brazilian refused to submit to any.
thing of the kind. lie came here to see
and not be cgen, and he did it. lie had

other man would, lie drove abvnt the

tiotygf big stores, theatres and other
plaees of interest, in the most quiet man
ner, and when he had got through-be
paid his bills like a man, and went to
Cbieago. There , were thirty people in
his suite,' attending upon his person,
and some twenty to take care of his
wife, the empress. The expenses cf the
party at the hotel alone were $2,800
per day, the entire expenses being prob
ably S.5,000. It isn't a bad business
being an emperor, Dom Pedro is a tall,
wellrbuiit, handsome jaan-one who
impresses one as being a Jong way

in his face. Tha. empress "is a ratiier

as is well-known, is tb most davoot
and bigoted Catholic to til South Ameri
ca. Be looked the character, at all
events. The empress never made a
movement without consulting him,
and whatever be said seemed to have
sufficient weight with her to decide her
action. It will be remembered that her
daughter had a riot with the emperor
not long since.' The emperor decreed
religious freedom, which the daughter
did not like, so she vowed a tow never

approbation of the priesthood, aud,
backed by her mother, the emperor was
compelled to succumb. The empress
looks as if she were capable of the same
thing. The party return to New York

bklrsap's impeachment.
Business., called me to Washington
this week, in time to see the opening of
the Belknap trial ; one of the most seri
ous cases ever before Congress the first
time that a cabinet officer has been, itu
dieted tor stealing. The bright Easter
Monday had drawn thousand of child
ren to their annual sport of egg-rolling
in the csptiol grounds, which rang all
day to their shouts. But whithin, the
formal proceedings . drew a gallery-
crowd to see how tlie ex-Secretary "took
it." The formalities, slight as they are,
were very impressive tram a body that
pays so little regard, usually, to. them
as the American Congrew. Chief-Jos
lice Watte came swiftly in wearing fits
silk gown of office, and the House of
Representatives filled the floor in the
Senate to hear the proclamation made
by the Sergeant-at-Arms, ai;d the im
peachment read. The counsel on both
sides gathered, a formidable looking
array of souud. learning and character
on the side of tlie government lawyers ;
on tlie other, were tlie legal dexterity
ot Matt. Carpenter, tlie keen crafty face
of Jndge Black, aud the concentrated
regard of pale Montgomery Blair. Mr.
Carpenter met his client, and brought
him in on his arm. Belknap was less
florid than usual, bat be seated himself
with ostentations assumption of entire
ease, turew one arm. over tne oacK ot
his chair, slanted his commanding per
son negligently in his seat, and fixed
his eye orr one particular part of the
gallery where two strikingly pretty
women were seated, and kept his re
gardj5 tlie re most ot the time while he
was in tlie chamber. Tlie impeachment
summons was read, to which the coun
sel filed answer that the said Wm. Bel
knap was not an officer of tlie United
States at the date of the summons. The
government counsel asked an adjourn
ment to prepare their answer, and the
show was over. The great self-indul
gent dragoon who lately held the office
ot high cabinet minister, stalked out of
the senate chamber, ' half a'dozen men
shook hands with him, a courtesy whi
he accepted in a lofty, jmpatieht fashion
ae if ha liad rather not be troubled with
such demonstration ; but not a senator
was seen to shake hands with him.
Tlie merchants ot New York are in
a state ot mind about the grain trade.
Statistics recently -collected, show that
Baltimore receives j nearly twtoo . the
erain that New York does, and Phila
delphia about the same ; while Boston,
which was supposed to bed&d, is work
ing up very closely to both. The papers
are all discussing the matter, and beg
ging the merchants to take steps to
bring back the trade. The trouble isn't
with the cierchants, though the loss
fails on them. The fact is the bloated
railroad monoplie;. have done the work.
There are no teciiities in New -York for
candling grain, chea ply, ""quickly, .
safely. That by the Central ha to be
lightered to the vessels, and very much
of it is isoved in trucks.. The system
is one ot stealing, extortion and iocon-
venienoe. Instead of running grata in
to an elevator od from thence into
vessels, at a merely nominal cost, there
are tolls, charges, cost, delays, and

This was Annie Colbv's reward, for
six weeks of patient toil for this boy
with the stature ot man and tlie in
tellect of a child. At first she had felt
for him an utter repulsion. His hands
were largo and scarred and adorned
with a pewter ring; his face freckled ;
his bair a flamire aureole, a standing
defiance of brush and comb; his clothes
coarse, ill-fitting and dirty; his motion
clumsy and awkard to the last degree.
Bnt when be came to her desk, after
school had closed, standing dumbly
there, his great hands fumbling nerv
ously in Lis pockets, as he looked up
wttli pe seeching eyes, tlie thought came
that perhaps hers might be the hands
to roll away the stone from the eepul-
eher and set the imprisoned spirit free.
So site did not repulse turn, as another
might have done. Daily she told him
of .God and Christ in heaven, and tried
to prune off his coarse; rough slang
. . . .
woras wnose iruiiage in tne ena wouia
be profanity. How much of her teach
ing lie understood she could not know.
After the rest had gone, he would come
to her 2esk, with wistful eyes, that fol
lowed, her every motion; and some,
tiaes he would take a fold of her dress
in bis hand and stroke it in a gentle, ea
ressing way. Like one of old, it he
eonld bnt touch the Jiem ot her gar
ment, ho was content.
One day she saw him slowly and la
boriously reading a chapter in the Tes
tament, and the sight gladdened her.
Bnt when at night he told her that he
hoped he had learned to love Jesus the
words almost shocked her. lie a Chris,
turn, with that unkempt hvir aud those
revolting finger-nails ! '
.. She forgot that goodness and culture
do no spring tull-statured into' being;
and that the sonl needs time Jor grow,
ing, not less than the tabernacle it in
habits! ..But she did not tell htm her
thought thank God tor that; she onhy
pmyed. the more earnestly - that be
might be helped toward all that was
true and right. And the answer came.
Little by little she could see that lie
was eropiriK toward purity not only of
heart, . but ot external life: groping
blindly, to be sure, but still as one who
was Hearing the light. , .
Then came the visit to bis home,
which showed her his surroundings and
taught her charity for his faults. ;
. Sichool had just closed one Monday
afternoon, when Hiram's father drove
op to tlie door.- Where's the Msrm V
he csUed, And as she appeared be said:
"My woman's been kalkerlatin' to hev
yer ter our house; and. we're been a
batcberin this forenoon, and thought,
as kug as we'd got a plenty of fresh
meat, we'd like to hev yer come up and
stay till momin', if yer : aint afraid to
ride with me in my ole clo'es.'
She weut,-Her first ' -greeting from
Mrs, Peters was on this wise : Banging
the yui3est;ebildren against the wall,
the mother, after shaking " hands with
her, turned to t001 and isaid.eoaxingly:
"Now, children, I want .you to .watoh
and do just as she doos and
talk j-at as she doos, so as to grow p
petty ladies.'-. : .
' Acaii Colby " seated' herself in the
ncpsiisted, "oncarpeted "done fi"! room.
Not a bookreot a newspaper was there
in the housed The loud-voiced hostess
as she placed supper upon the Uble, re
cocrtsd its virtues and defects.
"There's nothin' more hearty and
Tillihia' than spare-rib, aud this was

tread is not prime. The yeast was
poor. I wiFh I'd a made salt-risiu's,"

Peters, as though they were of a differ
ent humanity from yourselves; yet this
has been but the simple, literal story of
a boy who uvea his brief lite on a qmet
hilltop of New Eng'and.
In Lincoln Cathedral is a beautifully
painted window, so far superior to every
other that the visitor pauses before it in
admiring wonder. Yet it was made by
a poor apprentice from pieces of glass
rejected by his roaster. And in God
temples, in there later days, many a
poor, ignorant soul that the builders
rejected bas become tlie head of the
corner. -.
The weeks passed . on, and examina
tion day came. When the" exercises
were closed, Deacon Seldeu, the chair
man of the committee, row and said, be
bad no remarks to make, he would not
detain them, and then talked fifteen
minutes. Aed Mr.- Frame stated that
he had nothing to say, he wouldn't
hender, he fully agreed with the re
marks ot his I'lustnous predecessor;
"But" (with a glance at Hiram and his
own son, who sat together) "perhaps I
see before me some future President of
the United States, boys. The Ameri
can eagle is within the reach of the
poor, as well as the rich." It was the
custom in that district, at the close of
the term, tor every scholar, old and
young, to kiss the. teacher good-bye.
The scholars had given and taken their
farewell, and were all gone borne except
Hiram. He stood febyly near tlie door.
Miss Colbv felt utter Iv wearv. The ex
citement was over and the reaction had
begun. The : red bair, yellow cotton
necktie,' and green vest, jarred upon her
artistic eye. Could she kiss that freck
led face and touch the great scarred
hands ? , Her worn, nerves said . no, and
she listened to them. Hastily, gather
ing np ber books, she walked out, with
out seeming to notice tbo pleading eyes
in the doorway. She asked Hiram to
close and lock the scbool-lioase, gave
him one of her boquets to carry to his
mother, and said good -night as usual.
Five weeks later a summons. Hiram
had been sick three week, Mr. Frisbie
told her.- "The doctor said this morn
ing thai he could not live the day pat,
and lie thought he couldn't die without
seeing the Marra once .more; so," con
eluded Mr. Frisbie,' 11 have com,e after

A Druoutfcl Legiox.- There is a
eharming, tradition connected, with the
site on which the temple to Solomon was
erected. It is said to have been occu
pied in common by two brothers one of"
whom had a family; the other had-none.
On the spot was a field of wheat. On,
the evening sacceeding the harvext, the
wheat having been gathered in shocks,,
younger brother is unable to bear the-
burden and heat of the- day. I will-
arise, 4ake off my . shocks and place
them with his. without his knowledge.''
The yonnger brother, being actuated by
tlie same benevolent motives, said wiilu..
in himself: "My elder brother has a
family, and I have none. I will con.
tribute to their support; I wiU arise!,
take of my shocks and place them with,
his, without his knowledge." JtKljre ot:
tlieir matnal aatotiislnncnt wlico on the
fol lowing mornins they found their re-.
spective shocks utidumiiieiied. This.
coarse of evetits fjwiepired - for isevcral:
nights, when each resolved in his mind,
to stand guard, and solve the mystery..
They did so, when on the following
night,' they met each other halt war.'
between their respective shocks witht
their arms full. Upon ground hallowed
by such associations as this was tlie
Temple of King Solomon erected so
spaciou, so magnificent, tlie wonder and;
admiration of tlie world. Alas ! ia
these days bow many would sooner steal:
their brother's whole shock than add to.
it a single 'sheaf! , "!,. ' ,
