The ocean was like a lover it could be all thiugs. "Will it Uevery.oold for thelwbv my baby his baby? Will he mind it much?"

THURSDAY.. .JULY 81, 1870. A Brave Girl. "What a beautiful fnce !" I spoke involuntarily, and a lovely old lady sitting near me on the broad piazza of the Clarendon, kitting some white wool, smiled as if well pleased at niy outspoken admiration. Khe is indeed beautiful, and as true asle is lovely." Then we silently watched the pair on horseback until they disappeared ; but the pure, pale, high-bred face, with the dark eyes filled with love-light as they gazed upon the proud, manly figure of her escort, remaiued fixed in my mem ory. I instinctively felt that I had seen a woman who would do and dare, and I looged to know more of that life which I was sure had been no common one. "Do you know the young lady?" I asked of the tiny, silver-haired lady by uiy side. I had arrived in Saratoga but the night before, ami had risen early this lovely Jane morning, and had been re warded by the sight of that perfect faoe. "Very well. Her mother was my dearest friend."

J Qb J THURSDAY AUGUST 14, 1879. THE OAUSEOP OBIME. A correspondent of the Standard, writing from Carlton, under date of August lOtb, gives some sensible views of tbe causes which lead to crime. The letter is in reply to the assertion of tbe Xew York Evening Pott, approv mgly copied by the Standard, that the present alarming era of crime is due to tbe teachings of such infidels as Robert U. Ingersoll. The iW position Is that Ingersoll and bis colleagues have with drawn the fear of post mortem punish ment, and there is no restraining Influ ence to keep the masses In check. The correspondent says that, looking through tbe whole catalogue of criml nals, It will be found that very tew were not orthodox in sentiment, and that most of tbe victims of tbe gallows die devoutly orthodox. He adds, "Is It not a pity such blood-washed souls should be cutoffjust at the point tbey are made fit to live?" He plainly sees that tbe cause whloh Is productive of the increase in crime b fouud in our soci...

THURSDAY.......-..AUGUBT 2S, 1S7S. A SPEOIMEN OFUNJUST LAW. A woman, well known in Portland, some time ago brought a suit in the Circuit Court to recover from the father of her illegitimate child means for its support am! maintenance. Tlio suit was brought because the child's fattier bad violated an express contract with her. As a matter of course, the woman, who, in ber girlhood, was so protected and caret! for by ber seducer, lost the ease. The generous law-makers had so "provided for women," in such a case of Infamy as this, that the father should escape all pecuniary as well as moral obligation. The woman appealed the ease ti theSupreme Court, hoping that that august tribunal would not condemn a woman to the entire maintenance of a oh ltd because its father was so unprin cipled as Dot to help support IU The betrayed and abandoned outcast hoped that the misery, degradation and suf fering all being hers the father would be punished for hiscrlmeeveu so lightly as to he responsible ...
