with their marriages. Washington

a daughter named Abigail, who mar

who was but mediocre, Adams incurra
Tho ladies may bo further interested

nortant people. Mr. Jefferson had
very interesting daughters, and they
married Virginia politicians around
him to very httlo satisfaction in at
least ono case. Maria, tho best look
mn of tho girls, died in 1810. llor litis

marriago, but it was her father who
involved her and her husband in his
unscrupulous linancial and political
tricks, rmncu Her husband, and when
she embarked from South Carolina
with her child to seok her father, sho
met somewhere- in this world an ano

.ino most oninant marriago ever
made in tho political circles of tho
country in tho times of Washington
was that of Ann Willing to William
IMngham. They married early in
thoso days, especially where- thcro was
money, and Ann Willing married at
sixteen. Her husband was descended
from a Quaker blacksmith, but his
family had for four generations mado
prosperous marriages, and durmc our
revolutionary war tho husband got
otic or tne country and held a post
tion of half Uritish, half American
consul in ono of the West India isl

Ho camo homo very rich and received
as well tho Bingham moneys, and ho
chose tho daughter of Willing, who
was President of tho United States
bank and business partnor of Robert
Morris. Tho Willincs wero tho finest
people in Philadelphia. Tho present
cecrocary liayani is descended from
one of them. Freshly married in her

and tno young man was greatly ad
mired as the first American over seen
abroad. When ho returned, at theconi
mencement of Washington's adininis
tration, they built the finest houscov-
er seen in Philadelphia up to that timo
and not excelled perhaps in tho pres
ent day. It was filled with tho host

with tho best pictures from Italy.

pair so superbly brought up with a
town House and country house, and
he manied her; and tho larger portion
ol tho Bingham property, which
amounted to $1,200,000 in money,
went to swell tho capital of the Bar

having lost herself in society, caught
cold in an imperfect dress ono night

early ago. Sho had a sister of whom
great things wero expected, but along

without any standing or property.
and he tempted this girl to go out with
him one night and ho kept her out all
night, to thohorrorand wonder of tho
town, and then mado a compromise
with her parents whereby thev cavo
him money to send her home: sho was
divorced by legislature, her father hav
ing become United States Senator, und
so httlo was mado of the mattor by
tho Marine family that she was solicit
ed in marriago by her brother-in-law
Baring, and after living with him until
hia decease Bho married another French
nobleman and passed out of notice.

away with Jellerson Davis. President
Monroo a daughter married her cousin.
and they havo left noino descendants
at Washington and in tho State of
Maryland. Nollio Grant is tho last
President's daughter to draw atten
tion. Sho saw a young, bright-faced
Englishman on a steamboat and fellln
love with him without much reason or
inquest, and ho turned out to bo ap
parently a sort of boys' companion,
liardly oyer looking up to tho digninty
ot acquaintance with grown men. Ho
therefore seeks his pleasure in London
when ho has money to spend, and sho
stays at homo with her baby.

testimony to the heautv. modesty
and sweetness of Mrs. Kevins, tho
mother of tho bride, who has been too
much esteemed, on all these points for
her daughter topass into nothingness.

"Who was that 1 heard talkin' to

entered the kitchen door.
"Miss Jorden," replied his wife,
"Sho wants us to drop in to help eat

Robert waited for no more, but
rushed madly across tho meadow, and
crowing the little brook at its bot
tom bought reluge among tho rocks
in tho wood beyond where he allow
ed great sobs of remorse to shake hw
strong frame. Feeling his own inabil
ity to break the fel tors that bound
him, he humbly carried his burden to
the Ono who is over ready to help; and
when he returned in thegatheringdusk
ho was ready to gladden tho heavy
hearts in tho desolate homo with thtt
joyful tidings of tho victory ho had
"Wo havo something for which to
givo thanks yet," cried tho father in
tears. "Hero I have been doubting
God's lovo and kindness, even while lie
was preparing my heart's desire for
my thanksgiving song."
Tho next week they moved into a
poor, inconvenient tenement house,
but the tender caro their children lav
ished upon them, made this the hap
piest winter of their lives.
Robert succeeded in obtaining steady
work, though not such as he would
havo chosen, but he was wise enough
to understand that if lie wished to ac
complish anything, ho must begin at
tho bottom and work his way up. Tho
girls relieved tho mother of the greater
part of tho household work mean
while adding a little to tho general
fund by their busy needles.
When spring came Robert obtained

academy, and Alice, leaving Kutio to

alio long not summer nad beon suc
ceeded by tho golden autumn, and
Thanksgiving had returned to glad
den tho closing year. In the Cary
home nothing had been said about
tho feast that thoy always had been
wont to enjoy on this happy day. At
tho church door Robert was waiting
with old Bet and Dolly, when tho oth
er members of the family camo out.'
Ho proposed a short drive through
tho glowing woods, but merely went
by a winding route to tho dear old
farm-houso, whero thoy found tho
same conveniences they had left a
year before Everything was in per
fect order, and a fat turkey smoked
at tho head of a well-filled table. To
add to tho bewildermont of the white
hairod couple, a new deed for the farm
lay on tho father's plate. "To out
dear parents," was its only explana
tion, but tho father and mother were
not long in coining to tho knowledge
that their Belf-denying children
had beon saving tiieir hard-earned
wages for this precioua gift. Tho man
who had purchased thedear old home
stead for lesa than a fourth of its val
no had entered into obligations with
Robert to transfer tho deed as soon
as ho could repay tho money invested
with simple interest. Katie's pictures
had brought a handsome price, and
this, added to Robert and Alice's sav
ings, redeemed tho farm and tho team
that their father loved next to hia
children, besides purchasing a new,
easy chair for each of the parents.
Robort and his assistants had workecj
hard to change tho old-fashioned,
heavy furniture before the service clos
ed in the old church. Tho old folks
wero too glad to express their feelings,
but thoy fully agreed, while the tean
coursed down their cheeks, that this
was tho best Tliasksgivmg that they
had ever enjoyed. Christian Observ
