Catherine, wltese mind was now more
composed, but whose eyes plainly
showed that she had passed a sleepless
night, seemed much dejected. She had
lost that fierce wild manner which had
characterised her before, and she now
appeared to a much better advantage.
Her large and truly" magnificent cye

young girls before her, and then casting
a look upon Mrs. Summers and Mrs.
Hewitt, would henvc a heavy sigh, as

Such thoughts as
these passed rapidly through my mind
before I could answer her.
" 'When the pale stranger comes
again, my child, bring him lo the wig
wam of your parents. There you will
receive your answer,' was my reply;
then, taking the birds from ofT the
branch, I took her by the hand, and to
gether we walked home.
"Tho next day Many Canoes was with
her, and each succeeding day for a fort
night did he linger by her side, hoping
to gain her love. But the more his af
fections for her increased, the more she
disliked him, till at last" he refused to
be in his company any longer, and re
mained at home daily instead of walk
ing, as was her usual custom. At last,
as wo had not heard nor seen anything
of the stranger for a month, Lenard and
I began to think he had given her up,
mien one evening towards sunset we
misscti our pet from the wigwam. Look -
"igtip, I perceived Iier guilar Iiad also
gone. Always knowing where to find
Iter, I proceeded towards her tryating
place, but no trace of her was lo bo seen,
though her guilar hung in its usual
place. Thinking she had wandered away
into the forest in search of llowcrs, I sat
down to wait her return, when I beheld
this (taking the dagger before mention
ed from the box) lying uplSn the mat at
my feet, ricking it up, I examined it
wonderingly, and found the initials II.

placed it iu my belt and awaited the re

Before the woman of Utah emjoyed
the elective franchise those who clam
ored loudest for Its being extended to
them wero parties who had no political
"axes to grind," and who wero filled
with the bitterest feelings of animosity
against the people of Utah. They fool
ishly imagined that if our sex iu this
Territory had the legal right to vote,
they could lead U3 by the arts which
politicians aro accustomed to use, to
turn against men whom wo had tested
through long years of trouble and sor
row, and follow their lead. Upon no
othor hypothesis can their urgent de
mauds on Congress to bestow the right
of suffrage upon us be explained. For
when the 'territorial lesi&lature did
enact such a measure, and it became
law by the signature of acting-governor
Mann and the approval of Congress
and when they found that we could
think, and tliatthinkiii'' we intelligent
ly supported the candidates of our

that Conirress should nnsa jl law .io.

Cost of the IIoosac Tcnnkl An
official report, by the State Auditor to
the Legislature of Massachusetts, shows
that the cost to the Stato since it took
possession up to Jan. 1, 1S72, isS7,9S3,601.
This sum includes what has been paid
on the original contract, $1,177,003. It
is estimated that it will yet cost for a
railway from the west portal to North

premiums, commissions, etc., $12,027,

to be made for sinking fund, rents, etc.;
amount not stated, but not very large.
This Is, probably, the most precise
estimate yet made of the cost of this
