S' I, "Ma. when the pirch comes, you aiu't agoiu' to get your own consent to i«art with the old homestead." S' 'e, "George, now that the niggers are free, what is to keep do\vu the boshes and briars? A lone, lorn widow woman and one grey-headed l>oy of 30 (you know you are SO.Georee). uin't manage all the lau' aud stock we've got.

"Ma." s' I, "I don't believe yoifl part with your gums aud goutds, uot to live with Queen Victoria and oat oysters threo times a day. I think 1 know you better'n you know yourself." Then ina got mad and cried and said I was "iiupident and sassy to her and Td oughter cany out her views und uphold her." Pa had never crossed her liviu', nor nobody else, so it ended in my postiu' down to Fredericksburg in the carryall aud puttin' the plantation, crops, stock, etc., into the hands of McKay, Ian' agent. The town was alive with northern capitalists and visitors at that time. Seme came to see about their dead, interred in the great Uuiou cemetery there, it beiu' soon after the war was over. It wiis like the verse we used to say at school- Many came to see the wonder, To seek for gold and search for plunder, and some few to cast their lots with ours. McKay told me of a couple that got oft the train that day. Said the man loltilwpfwgvhaneedaffSl :sw aos eP was polite to his wife and gave Lauie Bill a dollar. A llau.' agent knows how to pick a gentleman right well, though not so well as an old A'irginin house nigger. The one who used to tote the wood in for the parlor lire, hang your horse or carry him to water and bring your boots. Thinks I, "I'll drive 'em out, and show the premises while rua is iu the notion." So out 1 go M'ith Mr. and Mrs. Sage, .a nice couple, rich and unhealthy, wanting to try Southern a'r. There was a cheerful blase on the parlor hearth. Ma b'leeves in a little blaze, all the year 'roun.though the weather was vur.v mild. Injun summer. Ivcsla, the cook, tossed up a little- hot dinner in no time, for we were hungry us au army of locusses after our drive. Billed ham au' eggs, fried sas- sage and hoccakes, and whilst, ma poured out the coffee aud October peaches in the gilt saucers I studied her face. To my astonishment she run on about the fashions—a thing she had took no stock in since pa died. Slio would't catch my eye, and 1 sorter mistrusted her, but carried Mr. Sage all over the plantation, and ho was delighted. "Just what lie was in search of. He wanted everything as it stood, the colts, calves, hogs, 'hat, boots, and all.' Thought he would put 'a now barn here,' aud 'a hay-house there,' and a vineyard, and 'double the sheep in the niedder.'" Him and Mrs. Sago mapped it off like, a picture by the time they were ready to leave the next day. Of course, I drove them back to town, twenty miles o' rough roads and busy time o' year. 1 and McKay made all the 'raugo- monts for the transfer of the property, and I come on back home. Still mistrnstin' o' ma, T kop' cle'r o' the subject. AYo both shunned it, and duriu" the follow-in' week I smoked a month'sallowauce of tobacco, and ma clicked and rattled her kitton'-needh-s as if life depended en her gottiu' that sock finished, and I'll bu shot if she didn't knit the leg a yard long. Bymc-by McKay came drlvin' up in u ilne double buggy, with Mr. Sage, to pay down the first installment. When Cindy ushered 'em iu ma drop- pud her long sock leg and her hands commenced to trimble. It was a good sale. We were git tin' all we askd,and a crackiu' price it was; for nut thought her dirt was a sight bi'ttern'nothor folks' dirt. Not a hitch—nowliar. All of set talkin' as friendly as you please 'round the blaze on the hearth. Little black Joe on his own 'sponsibil- ity hull's 'round u waiter of maiden bulsh apples, and Cindy, the house gal, not to bo outdone, gits out ginger cakes and I'oamin' pitcher of sweet cider. Ma set shukin' and trimbly tho whole endurin' time. Mr. Sage he set back in pa's old stufl'et leather arm chair, with heels .on the fender like comfort itself, and diluted about the changes hu'd mind t<\ make. "A hundred Southdown sheep" for the hill pasture —and "graiuiu 1 forty beeves;" "ten acres in turnips' and ten in celery," and all such wild talk ns city farmers indulge in. Finally the pen was diped and handed ma. but Mead er takin' it she* clinched hands together hard and laugliin" a tremulous little pitiful laugh, s' 'e: "Mr. Sage, do you know how high corn crows on IMs plantation? S' 'se, "Xo, mum." "Then I'll tell," holding her hand foot above the carpet—'exactly so high nnd no higher. Then the blades turn rusty and red and flop over like dog's «»•», and a little uubbhi comes the size of my finger." Mr. Sage sorter smiled, for he ha commented on the big cornstubs in the rield. Ma gave another dry laugh, and s' 'e: , "1'our sheep will die . There ain't, enough gras on the uplan's to parstera rahit. and tho metiers are pizeuous with chills and fevers, aud we're subject to pneumonia and mumps and measles, an it's the worst kind of luck to move at your time of life anyhow.' Mr. Sage says very gently: 'Madam, 1 respect your felln's,' and they walked cut ou the porch. Then ma bust out hi the pitifulest Bobbin' aud cryin' aud she and me had it. She blamed me her only sou, for in* in her old age to turn his ma "homeless and houseless,. roofless and a'." "My sou,'" she said, "the air don't blow so sweet aud pure over uo other piece of God's earth, and things all so convenient to my baud. I could go to my places the darkest night that' comes." Though I'll swear you'd have to travel a .mile to go the rounds of her flower-garden, /green' house, dairy, weavin' house, ice-house and all thu fowl-houses and apurteuances. They were located far apart in old slavery days to give occupation to the niggers, 1 suppose. 'And oh, George, my two babies iu the graveyard, and I'd picked out ;ny own place by your pa's side. I'm like au old tree, I can't stand transplantm' Oh, son, to think of your doiu.' such a cruel-hearted thing iu my old age!" ".But ma," I says, tryin" to defeu' myself. "And George, I don't know but it's wrong to go off aud desert our niggers. The old ones that raised us aud the .voting ones we raised. It's not their fault they are set free, and they mind their old miss' as well as ever they did (I always spiled 'eui some), and it's only the triflm', uo-account ones gone off to the 1'aukes any way." Seeiu' I agreed with her ' she went on. "There's old Villet with her rheu- matiz, and Crazy June, who's harmless as u robin, and your ma's old drop- silled butler, aud Bliud Jim boy, that used to drive the blooded Morgan horses when your pa came a-courtiu' me. "Who'd physic 'em and scold 'em and see they doiit starve? George! it would be a sin to desert 'em at their times of lives." Women may be no great shakes at hard, sotm' reasouin', but ma's a very pretty talker indeed, aud, by grabs, I felt sorter so myself aud downright aggravated with McKay. What call had he to fly off like a potleg in such a sudden swivet to oust us from the property which had belonged to our general ion ever since William tho Conqueror, and for aught L know helped him to conquer it? The honor aud glory of settiu' up in a stiff-starched collar at the Exchange hotel, hobiiobbiu' with the Virginia legislatur', and the judges, and the bong long would be but a poor compensation for my pack of noun's aud blood horses, and the foxes and birds and things I was used to. I would be but alone, lost boy, cast adrift, even if I did eat oystliers three times a day. "Aiu't there no way of gettin' out of this trap?" says ma, wipiu' her eyes on tho long sockleg. "I b'leeve I'd die anywhere else." "If we pay McKay his commission and persuade Mr. Sage to give out the uotiou," says I doubtfully. "How much is the commission, George?" she asked eagerly. "It amounts to $1)8.70, but"— "George," she spoke quickly, "If you will step out to the stables for awhile I thiuk I can compose my mind and solemnize my thoughts!" The colts came whinnyiu' to meet me and rubbed their noses on my shoulder; the calves, the pigs, everything in the yard came at me in a body. I got a hamper of nubbins aud scattered 'em, and soinothiu' kep' gettiu' in my eye' aud I thought 1 would actually blow my blamed nose off, and tho more I thought of McKay's ofiiciousucss the uuuler 1 got. But when I got back to the parlor it was quiet as a church, and thorn was ma out at the yard gate buldin 1 the gent'men "far'well." Such was her haste to get them off aud away. My dear old mother! Her eyes shone bright as a young girl's—she's smilin' and lookiu' as pleased as if she'd been left a fortune. Mr. Sage smiled, too, and bowed over her thin, wrinkled head like a truehearted gontfiiian. Ma had carried all her p'iuts with Mr. Sage, then ran and got this shot- bag she had kep'her egg and chicken and butter money in for forty yours. She paid McKay the commission and begged,; * lu(l plead Avith him to go away and never come there on no such omul' again so long as she was ou top of God's earth. Onion tiuiiji.

The moons of Mars were discovered a few years ago through the telescope of the naval observatory at Washington by Prof. Asaph Hall. He will be actively interested in the observations of that planet and its new-found satallites, which will be made in August next by astronomers all over the world. Since the discovery of the moons in 18ST ( this is the first opportunity afforded for examining them, inasmuch as they are so small as to be perceptible only at close range. Once in every 15 years Mare readies its nearest point to the earth. Eight weeks hence it will bo within 35,000,000 miles of us, whereas its greatest distance is 141,000,0(10 miles. Great interest attac'ies to tho matter, because) this sister woild is so much like our own in respect to its climate and other conditions that it may reasonably be supposed to be inhabited. There are at least.20 moons in tho solar system. Saturn alone has eight, the biggest of them, Titan, being nearly tAvice the she of our moon, and Jupiter possesses four, ranging in dimensions upward from IMvopu, just about as large as the orb of terrestial night. Ganymede; greatest of all 1,-uowu moons, with a diameter of 3,480 ini'.es, whereas the moon belonging to this world is oi> r ;- P.T.O miles through. Though our moon 'q supposed to bd dead and cold, similar conditions are not ussumr cl to govern all the sarellites of the sister planets. Some of those pertaining to Jupiter are bi-lK.-ved to emit light.of their own, showing that they are still hot. However, astronomers are usually eager to Hud evidence of life on other spheres, even discovering on tho earth's at fond en t orb apparent traces of mighty works of engineering artilice—the imagined creation of races beii 1 ^' long extinct—such as thu stupendous bridge- that appears to span a crater of tho moon volcano called Eudoxus. Kcliirvs n.e ovory-day affairs on Jupiter. Three o.: Us satellites are eclips-d at eveiy revolution of that mighty globe, so that a spectator there might witness during the Jovian year 4,500 eclipses o2 moon and about the same number of the sun by moons. One of Saturn's moons called Mimas, about half the s^ize ofi the earth's satellite, is so close to the planet in its circling that it seems to cross tho face of the latter at an astonishing rate of speed. Of the seven others, Titan has a diameter of 3,300 miles, la pel us 1,800 miles, Ithoa 1,200 miles, Dione and Tlietys each 500 miles, while Euceladus and Hyperion are very little fellows. Several of .them in the sky together, with the. flaming ring of star dust stretched athwart the heavens, must make a gorgeous spectacle by night ou the Saturnism sphere. Through the telescope it is very interesting to watcli the shadows thrown upon Jupiter by that giant planet's moons, observation of the eclipses of which furnished the first data for estimating the velocity of light. Uranus had four little moons—Ariel, Umbriol, Titunia and Obbruon—which, funnily enough, rise in the north and set in the south. A single diminutive one, belonging to Neptune, traverses the sky from southwest, to noitheast. Neither Mercury nor Venus lias any satellites. But the most interesting of all moons are the two that attend Mara, each about 00 miles in diameter. That planet is. just one-half the size of the earth; its surfao is divided into continents and seas, having as much laud as water; it has au atmosphere, cloud's frequently concealing its face, and its seasons are about the same as here, though the "waters are colder. Because one of its 'moons travels around at three times as fast as Mars itself turns, it appears to rise in the west and set iu the east, while the other, really circling in the same direction at a speed comparatively slow, rises iu the east and sets in the west. Tims botli moons are seen in the heavens at the same time, going opposite ways. One of the most remarkable guesses on record was made by Dean Swift, who, a century before tho moons of Mars were discovered, made Gulliver say of tho astronomers of Laputa: "They have found two satellites which revolve about Mars, whereof tho innermost is distant from the planet exactly threo diameters of the planet; the former revolves in the space of 10 hours and the hitter iu two aud one- half hours. "In fact the latter .moon is 10,000 miles from Mars, whereas—the diameter of the planet being 4,000 miles --Gulliver's estimate would place it 1^,000 miles. For the cuter moon lie gives 20,000 miles for the distance, which is really 15, 000 miles. The time of revolution for the inner moon is actually seven and a half hours and for the outer one 30 hours. Prof. Hall has named these moons Doimos and Plio- bos, after the attendants of tho god Mars who are mentioned in Homer's "Iliad."—Providence Jotunnl. n>s AN OJT,J> mroitY. TuUl in Many I.dniltt for Agus, Iliuusutiils Jluvu Thrilled Over It. There is a stoi-y, more or less diffused of a young bride, on her wedding-day, playing the game of hido and seek, and concealing herself iu oue of these ancient carved chests of large size. After she had got in the lid closed, and she found hereself unable to raise it again, or it fastened with a spring and she was shut in. Search was made for her in every quarter but the right one, aud great perplexity and dismay wore caused by her disappearance. It was not till years after, when chance led to the opening of the chest, that the body of the youug bride was discovered and the mystery of her disappearance solved. Tho story Is found in so many places that ,'tt may be cuiestioued, says tlio Cornhill Magazine, whether it is true of any one of them. Rogers tells it of in Modena. The chest in which the poor bride was found is shown .it Bramslull, in Hamshire, tho residence of Sir John Cupo. .Auofner similar chest, with precisely the same story attached to it, was long shoAvn at Marwell Old Hall, between \nuchester and Bishop's VT.-iitam. The folk-tale of Catskiu or Peau d'Ane represents the girl flying with her bridal dresses from a marriage that it is repugnant to her, and, as this tale is found over all Europe, it may have metamorphosed itself iuto that of the bride who got iuto a chest aud died there. Iu the Icelandic saga of Half and His Heroes that belongs to the heathen semi-mythic, semi-historic period of the Norse and Danish kings, Hjorleif, lung of Hodaland, a portion of the Norwegian coast, married Hiuga. daughter of Keidjir. King of Zealand; mid ho sailed away with her on board hi.* ship. But she fell ill at sea and died,'whore-j upon he put her body in her chest aud' threw it overboard. One. day King, lleidar aud his son were out lisliiug, when the waves washed up the chest at their feel, and in it they found the | body of Hiiiga. Very wroth they were, for they made up their minds •that King Hjorleif had murdered her. .King Itcid'U' called to arms, aud this' occasioned a murderous war, that resulted in the subjugation of Zealand under tne sway of Hjorleif and the death of lleidar. The moral of which • story is: Do not jump to rash con- j elusions. | Gregory of Tours tells the story how that nigunthe, tho daughter of Chil- poric' (A. D. 570), was disobedient to her mother. The Queen, exasperated at the girl's insolence and defiance—' she oven struck her with her rlsis— offered to show her the contents of her chest and nil the treasures therein which had been given her by tUe king. Tliis appeased lUgtmthe. Tho queen raised the heavy lid, and n.s the girl stooped to look in and search among the objects therein, her mother let it fall on her neck. She was oi-iy saved fror.i death by the &erviug-inaI 1 s rushing up to extricate her. After that she probably thou'.j'it twi^j before offending iier im:'ir>'.
