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 EMPEROR OF BltAZTL. 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 fpififuJiJ apartments for himself and suite at the Fifth Avenue ' Hotel,' and be paid bis owa bils the fame as any other man would, lie drove abvnt the city rl viewed it in Lite most comfort able way he eooli in carriages that ha paid for ; he visited die chops, fbrtiEca 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 a bo ye the average. There is chataotcr in his face. Tha. empress "is a ratiier handsome woniap, yf V-Q pgU& a it she had as ranch wj, at Jst, as her bus- band, and as though she had her finger in wb&t of govcriTani Brazil enjoys, The capers acpompanyinghim were all fins , ookin rpen, except one the tr. usurer, or purse-holder small, wpazen-ucea, brown-skinned man whose business with tha party no oca could make oat. It was snrmised that be is the confessor of the empress, who, 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 to wear shoes or cover Jier bead tilt the decr9 was revoked tnd the CatholJe reTiaiou made as before! the only record ! nized religion. And she did go' aboUt the streets barefooted, much to the scan 4aA of the court, but with the entire 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 in a short time, when the bummers and the fashionables will make another effort to gobble hira. lie has a remarkably good opinion of this country and-its peop'e, ' and it is desirable that he will steadfastly refuse to be wined and dined by the officials of this city, or be entertained by the equally objectionable snobs." . 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. TH a RAIN TRADE. ; 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 of whest ilcj t" ' -a Xli difh leaded to alswt lis t;Ii3.

Easter is two weeks later this spring than last, which was favorable to, people who found it convenient to put oCvhop. ping as long as possible.- The styles at the openings display a judicions mixture ot last years notions which the milliners cannot get out of their heads in any one season, with very nsach tht is Dew in the way of fabric and trimming. Pearl gray and pale drab chip bomieta ot the small capote shape are in, the best taste for ladies, while all sorts ot turban and pretty fancy hats are shown Sat the eonntry and to be wonrby youcg girls. Wings and feathers are interdicted by fashion, though the second-rite milliners fill hats with theut as they were worn last fall. The trouble is that these dealers are so slow iri gettfcg the mode, that their batsaJ way look behind-hand, and the styles of last winter dovetail on those of ' Jtme. t;; Heather, -with its delicate pinky white and soft foliage, is the flower admired for trimming. Plu my oata and all suit, treesy, drooping flowers and grass also fall in with the ttyle of trimming hats, and with these heavy crape-fike ribbons and plain fine, grained silks areused more than any thing else.

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 it killed to day. But I am afraid my tread is not prime. The yeast was poor. I wiFh I'd a made salt-risiu's," etoeto. .

A dirty crash towel hung over the .roller, jid a bowl of sofUsoap was, in compliment to her, placed upon the bench. "Mebbe you'd like to wash, sug. gested Hiram, when it came his turn, his father having finished his "ablutioDs. But, like Nicholas Nickleby, she con tented herself with a cleau handker chief and a dry rub. .-' ,Yoa whose fingers dip "daintily into china bowls, wreathed round with morn ing glories painted so like real ones that you fain would pluck them; whose bands, dripping with the clear, pure wa ter, lose themselves in the soft damask that lies near you may smile at the 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 yon m my express wagon.' ; Miss Colby began to collect jellies and little delicacies o rrjrt his f-pjx;.

" "No, be answered, - ?He was pick ing at the bedclothes all day ystesday, and I never knew that sign to fail. It was a ten-miles ride. Mr. Peters met them at the door and . led her in. But what a- change five weeks had wrought! Hiram lay upon the bed, his hands out of sight beneath the coverlid. Sickness had refined his face. The freckles bad ' disappeared. Through a rift in the clouds -a single sunbeam, slanting down from .the, upper .. glory, fell upon bis' hair, making ot .it a halo about bis bead. He looked up, and a pink flash dawned on hi face. - , Yoa forgot to .bid me good-bye, teacher, be said, simply. She bent down and tonched her lips eently to his burnlusr cheek. ".I don't eay dad-bobbit and dog-gone it' now, be added." ? . - There was a strange choking in her throat. She could not answer. Ia the silence nothing could be heard bnt the slow, solemn tick, tick, ot the old-fksh ioned clock ia the corner. Lor-? as she lives, Cm will never ibrget that sound. After a little be spoke again.

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! , "!,.
