It was a sweet little face that came to me just at a time when my bark was fast near ing the billows. It was but a short time three years—that I called her mine; hut look ing back upon all the past. I tremble to think what might have been had her presence nev er brightened my life and taught me my duty. It was just before the late war between the north aud the south that I became the wile of a navy officer. He was many years my sen ior, but it was a union of hearts for all. He was reserved and dignified as became his po sition ; I was gay and light-hearted almost to frivolity, I think now. He often pleasantly chided me for my gayefv, saying I ought to settle down row I had such aa old-tashiouru husband. But I knew he was most pleased when I was rcmst cheerful, so accepted lus findings in the spirit in which they were ad u.ii.i4ftiod. , , , At the breaking out of the war my husband had been ordered to L-• a small station created for the emergency, there to take com mand of a vessel being fitted up for the Mis sissippi squadron. Ot course I accompanied him. L—— was a small town, of no note nutd the war converted it into a naval sta tion, thus bringing labor aud money to its in habitants. Of the society the least said the better. Them were quite a number of officers sta tioned there, most ot them married men. who, with their wives, made up our society. We were constantly resorting to ways and means to kill time. There was one family of some pretensions in the place who frequently joined our circle, and at whose house wo were quite as frequently invited; but owing to my husband's retired habits, we ourselves seldom went. This was not at all satisfac tory to one ot my temperament, aud when I would hear the officers’ wives talking over these festivities, I longed with all tho fervor of a child to participate in them. “You are burying yourself alive,” one would say; and another add,“You are as old as your husband now.” And Mrs Stanhope, the wife of oui snrgeon once advised me to go without him; “other ladles do,” she added. But my pride and common sense forbade that. I had al ways considered it a wife's duty to respect the wishes of her husband, and I was a little surprised that Mrs. Stanhope, a lady at least fifteen years my senior, should thus advise me. One night the officers were to give a ball on board the boat then in my husband’s com mand. It was the first regular ball they had given—the previous entertainments were merely social parlies. Arrangements had been made to make this quite a grand affair for that out of the way place. My husband had not altogether approved of the measure, although he had consented ‘‘You will surely attend,” I remarked, as he expresse l to me bis disapprobation. “It being on board your own vessel, it would hardly look well to stay away.” “Yes, I wiil go; but Clara, I heartily dis approve of such festivities at a time when our country is so overshadowed with war.” The evening of the hall at length arrived. All so far had been entirely favorable, and a delightful time was anticipated. The dance had already commenced, when an otderly came in search of my husbaud. There had come a despatch ordering my hus band to report to M-at once. I leave you in charge of Lieutenant Morris, he said, as be imparted the news to me, at the same time bowing to the Lieutenant, who was with him. “I accept the trust,” he replied grace fully. “I shall probably he back the day arter to morrow at the farthest,” he continued, and bidding me good-bye, wc parted. Lieutenant Morris was the oldest officer in the squadron there except my hnsband. He w» unmarried, very affable in his manners and upright in deportment, and a universal favorite. Flushed with gayety, I entered into the en joyment of the hour with a keen relish. “You are a tine lancer, Mrs. B.,“ said my companion, as he led me to a seat after the quadrille. “How is it you have never at tended our select dances before?” “My husband does not enjoy them,” I an swered. “Is that a sufficient reason ?” he asked in a half whisper. “I think so,” I replied little haughtily. “Then you are no champion for woman's rights,” he answered gayly. “Is it fair to judge me by that?” “Perhaps not. But see, they are going to waltz. You waltz, do you not?” “Not often, and I must beg to be excused to-night.” f He bowed and went to seek another part ner, and soon I saw him whirling down the cabin with Miss Checsebro, a niccc of Gov. West's. To say that I was pleased with the enter tainment and the attentions I received,would but express very faintly my delight I was charmed, intoxicated with it, ami loyal as I was, I scarcely gave one thought to my ab sent husband, who at the time I sought my state room, was riding fearlessly through the storm of midnight iu obedience to orders. The da on which my husband had expec ted t> return ca i e and passed, and the next also; still he came not; and I, though accus tomed to disappointments of this character, grew restless and uneasy To return the compliment to the officers, Govimor West had issued invitations to a ball, to he given "at his residence just one week from the uight of ours. A number of the elite from the neighbor ing city had been invited, and the affair promised to be -i very brilliant one. This may be though;*! very short time in which to prepare for a ball, but it must be re membered that ilie boats were daily expected to leave tne station, ana tncrc was no nine to spare. . “Of course you will go,” said Mrs. Stan hope to me. “I am undecided,” I replied. “If my hus band returns it shall be as he says. If he docs nut return I hardly expect to go.” “But you are in my charge,” said Lieuten ant Morris, “and I, as your guardian, shall insist upon your going." “Stop, Lieutenant! As I understand it, I was only put in your charge for that evening” I answered playfully. “Oh, no, Mrs. B. There was no time specified. You are still under the shadow of wywing.” We bantered each other for a time, I far from feeling the gay spirits I assumed; for secretly I very much wished to attend the ball, aud I knew if my husband returned my going was doubtful. The day passed, and another, when instead of my husband there came th s despatch: “I am unexpectedly detained. It will be Impossible for me to be with you for at least ten days. Meantime eDjoy yourself as best you can. Lieutenant Morris will see that you ara comfortable.” At any other time I should have been ready to cry at the prolonged absence of my hus band, but I confess to a secret gratification upon receiving the despatch. lie could not be at home in time for the ball, and had ho not expressed a desire for me to enjoy my self? I showed the despatch to Mrs. Stan hope, who i ns lantly advised me to accept the escort of rlie Lieutenant and attend the ball. I think it was a knowledge that she would .thus advise me that prompted me to show her my letter. Sriil I did not feel at rest. I had a sort of pride that rebelled against ap pearing in society without my husband; but Mrs. Stanhope's arguments and the Lieuten ant's entreaties at length scattered my scru ples. and I resolved to go. My early life—my girlhood days—had been passed in strict Seclusion, and my husband's quiet ta-te* bad made my married lile almost as solitary in regard to society. Is tt so much oi a wonder then that I was almost carried away by its gay scenes ? The evening came, and in company with Dr. btanbopc a id wife and Lieutenant Mor ris I went to the ball. The Lieutenant was exceedingly attentive, and I received many attentions from others; still I was ill at ease. Several times I caught myself wondering if people would t.unk me unmarried; or worse still, his wife; and once or twice I fancied that the Lieutenaut half smothered the 3fra. when introducing me to his friends. “Have you enjoyed the evening, Mrs. B?” I he inquired as we walked homewards. "Oh, rery much!”I replied with much fer vor. “I hope nothing will keep you away from such gatherings in future.” “That is more than I can promise myself. „knof. Captain B. does not enjoy PerhaM iiSn™fa'r to kceP y°u from them. vorabl^tow^d themg”r<lay8hC Was morcfa' old man yet?” * replilid; “but he is not an might*mak^heSjhat comparisons one I saw, or fancied I saw, in his allusion to the disparity in our ac^ Vmt t made no reply. “ ’ 11 Tbo next day brought my husband, ! “Do you care that I went?” I asked after i I had told him how I had employed try time, “Not at all. It is very lonesome here even when I am with you; it must he intolerable when I am gone. I am glad my little gill en joyed it.” I “There la to be a horseback parly to-mor row,” nervously toying with the buttons ot ! hi s coat. “Isthere? Well?” “Shall we go?” I asked. “It would be baldly any pleasure for me, j as I have been in the saddle for nearly ten ! days.” Although I said nothing, my face must have expressed rav disappointment, for he very soon said: “Do you wish to go, Clara ?“ “Very much.” . j “Would you bo satisfied to go without i me?” “Hardly.” , „ 1 “Then suppose we stay at home. 1 should enjoy reading this volume with you more than riding out,” and lie tossed a beautifully i bound little volume into my lap. At another time I should have screamed with delight, for it wus what I bad sj mucli longed to see—a copy of “Enoch Arden.” jjr.t now there came no response, no word of thanks from my lips. He seemed disap pointed. but said nothing as he went out Iwasjnst in a mood to feel unkindly to ward every one, and most unkindly of all to ward my noble husband. What right had he to make mo conform to his tastes. Then I fell to thinking how cruel it was to bring me away from my earlier friends and bury me alive in that miserable, dull town. Surely all men were not so reserved or so tbgyish as ho, and wondered if I should not have been more satisfied with one nearer my own age. Then I found myself making comparisons, ever a dangerous tram of thought for a wife. Some how, uppermost in my mind during a'l this mental barranguc was Lieutenant Morris, with his handsome face and genial ways. I blush now witn shame as I recall those thoughts bat I was angry anil disappointed then, and just in a mood to think myself very much abused. I must have behaved shamefully ill that day, for in the evening my husband came up where I was sitting, and laying his hand up on my shoulder said in a very low calm voice: “Clara, I would not willingly give you pain or deny you one pleasure. I cannot attend you to-morrow, but if you wish will provide I you an escort.” “Oh, do!” I exclaimed so eagerly that the calm look in her eyes grew painfully penetrat ing as he fixed them sadly upou my face. I went with the party, nominally under the escort of Dr. Stanhope and wife, but it was Lieutenant Morris who rode by my side who praised my riding, my figure and general ap pearance with more warmth than pleased ev en my insatiable vanity. After that day my husband seemed .differ ent. He was as kind to me as ever, ever in dulging uie more than formerly, but the old tenderness was gone. I missed the stolen ca ress, the pet warmth—the thousand little tendernesses that had before made my life so sweet. Had any one given 'me a whispered hint that my heart wa* growing disloyal to my husband, or that Lieutenant Morris sought my society with pleasuie, I should have re pelled the accusation with indignation. I had no thought of anything wrong. But then why was I so pleased with his society ? Why did X care so little whether it was he or my husband who rode by my side; who walked with me, and seemed always ready to attend me? It was because I loved flattery, and he filled my measure to intoxication. The summer had ripened into autumn, and autumn was fast merging into winter; still, annfmmt -ill Aim ovrijotofiAiui urn morn irnf detained at the station. Mrs. Stanhope had set her active brain to work conjuring up fes tivities for the winter, aud her programme was the promise of oyster suppers, card par ties, and balls enough to suit the liveliest taste; aud I, so far from being surfeited with society and pleasure, was almost beside my self with the delightsome privileges. The home delights of reading and conver sation that had once been so pleasing to me were now disliked and neglected, except at intervals, when prudence and duty would as sert. their sway. My husband never rebuked, me and but seldom accompanied me to those gay scenes; but I had become so accustomed to appearing without him that it scarcely mattered any tiling whether he attended mo or not. Where ail this blind foolishness might have led me I shudder to think. But a merciful God interposed. With pitying eye He saw my tolly, aud sent a messenger of grace--a sweet pledge oi love—to snatch me, it may be from ruin. I was about to become a mother. When the fact first became known to me I was very angry and mortified. I bad planned such a gay winter, and to be disappointed was so sore a trial. 1 fear that if I hau then studied my own heart I should have discov ered that the loss or lieutenant Morris's so ciety and flattering speeches was what would disappoint me most. But as months passed on I became reconciled to all this, especially as it brought back all the old tenderness of my husband; and the pleasant hours of social intercourse so long neglected and unappre ciated. In May my child, a beautiful little daughter, was born. All the maternal love within me was bom with it, and society, gay ety and adulation were all forgotten in the dear sweat treasures of home. Oh, how llovcd that child! I ofren won dered if all mothers thus loved heirj children. Aud from the love born with its birth there sprang such a new feeling ot tenderness toward my husband that I bad never dreamed could exist. Had I lealized then as 1 do now, the mission of that child, I should have been prepared more for what fol lows. But that was not revealed to me till mv heart throbbed with the agony of desoia tiou. For three years this messenger of love and peace cheered our home aud hearts. Then death robbed me of my treasure. Never was death more desolating nor sorrow more deep aud murmuring, followed by a sweeter, calm er, holier submission., Though years have passed since then my old love of gayety has never returned. The whispers of vanity have been unheeded, the loyalily of my heart has never been question ed, because 1 find a purer joy in a life of de votion to Him who, when folly had well nigh ruined me, raised His holy arm in my behalf. And to-day, as I scatter fresh spring flowers over the grave of her whose guileless soul led her mother’s feet back to duly aud right, I bless in my inmost soul Him “who gave, who took, wh i will restore—who doeth all things weil. » Sarah Hart.

PELEG STAPLES, Agent for tlie Slate ol' Maine and New llrunswicli, Tlio University Medicine has been tested by so many, and its merits so well known, IbaLthe hue and cry of humbug bus lost ail its autre. It has cured over 5000 cases in Maine within three fears, including all diseases subject to this climate, fc lias cured over 3000 cases that could not be reach ed with any other medicines. It has cured many patients after their pbysiciaus told them there was no cure for them. It lias proved itself to bo superior to any other known medicine in the world for the cure of all forms of chronic diseases. CATARRH (the mother of consumption.) Scrofula, salt Rheum, and many otbor diseases hitherto con sidered incurable, readily yield under treatment of the University Medicines. SPERMATORRHOEA, the greatest destroyer of humanity on the face of tho G»obe. How many be wail the loss of precious vitality without having the slightest idea of the cause, their manhood is daily vauiphing and they are gliding into a slate of hope less decay. Too strong language cannot be used by parents to council their children while young to guard against this horrid malady. By so doing they may save their sons and daughters from a ruined health, insanity and a premature grave. Abate this evil and there will bo no more appropriations required to enlarge our Insane AsvJums. I have cured over 2000 cases of this life and son destroying malady within three years, I* the New England States and Canada. I have invariably found that the foundation of destruction was laid before the victim was old enough to kn w of its evils. Do not let false modesty stand in the way of treatment be fore the constitution is ruiued. Persons afflicted with diseases will please call or send and get a book (free,) wherein tney will find their diseases explained, and necessary remedies.

Thousands of certificates can be presented if nec essary. but If the following are not sufficient to sat isfy the moat si;Optical, 10,000 additional ones would be useless. A few words on Rheumatism ! OR HOW I BECAME ENGAGED IN THE UNIVERSITY MEDICINES. Some eight years ago, (after returning from the sickly climate of Southern China) I was attacked with Rheumatism, and for four years I was unable to dress myself and most of tbe time, my suffering was so great that I would have given all 1 possesed or the weaiih of tho world if I had it, to be relieved from my sufferings. I tried all remedies 1 knew or could hear of but received no benefit. I had about given up in despair when I received one of the Uuiversity books. I thought it a humbug at first, but aftor a areful perusal it looked so reasonable, like a drown ing mau catching to a straw, I sent for tho medicine, and in one w eek after I commenced taking it I lelt some relief. In one month I could move about wi»li ease, and at the end of two months 1 was perfectly cured. I triod the medicine on several others af flicted with Scrofula, Salt Rheum, Dropsy. &c., with the same beneficial effect. After testing tho medi cine to my satisfaction and finding it far superior to any other medicine for all chronic diseases, I obtain ed the general agency for the State of Maine and New' Brunswick, ami moved to Portland some three years ago. And of the thousands of patients I have treated I have met with almost universal success. 1 do not expect to cure all, and when I see a patient that I think I cannot cure I tell them so, for above all other abominations there is none greater than to deceive and rob tho sick. As there are thousands suffering with rheumatism I wish to impress tho minds of such to not despair; their case is cur able. When I can sco the patient and apply the direct Modicator, 1 can relieve tho pain in a few min utes, and by taking tho Uuivorsity Medicines. If uot cured in a mouth there will be great relief, and it must be a very stubborn case that I cannot cure in twro months, why I dwell so much on Rheumatism I know too well how to sympathize with those that aro its victims, and I know they can bo cured. Ii the above statement willi the following certificates is not enough to sufficiently satisfy those that are suf fnrln» wit It it lii'Tri t.Tu>rr» Certificates of Cares. This is to certify that I had been for a long tinu I atiiicted with Rheumatism. For nine months I wai i under medical treatment without receiving benefit I At length I became nearly helpless, and my suffer I ings intense. In this dreadful condition 1 sent fox Dr. Staples, General Agent for the New York Univer | sity Medicines. In ton minutes after applying the ! Acopuncturatur I was able to dress. Anu in six days j I walked from my bouse on South Street, to Dr. Sta i pies’ office, 250 Congress Street, and I havo been ablo j to attend to my business ever since. L. V. WHALEN, Barber. Portland, April 1G, 1873. 13S Fore Street. After suffering a yeai with Sciatic Rheumatism and most of the time unable to move without groat pain, all the time being under the best medical treatment I could find, I called on Dr. S aples’ Agent for the University Medicines, and in four weeks I was free from the above disease, and have boon well up to the present time. JAMES A. MAYBERRY, Portland. April 13, 1873. Casco, Mo. This is to certify that I have been afflicted with the inflammatory rheumatism for over twenty years. I have employed most of the best physicians in Port land, and paid hundreds of dollars for medicine with out any permanent cure. Two years ago last March I was takon with Rheumatic fever; for live weeks I was unable to turn in bed or feed myself, my left arm and hand was red need to nearly* half the size of my right one, and was unable to lift two pound’s weight until last July, whon I saw the effect of the University Medicines'on the daughter of Capt. Win. Thorndike. 1 called on Dr. Staples and stated my case. He said he could cure it. I commenced taking the medicine with the acupuncturatiou. Before! liad taken four bottles I considered myself more freo from pain than I have been for twenty yoars up to tills time. I have not had a relapse. 1 consider it to be the only sure niodicinefor the above complaint. WILLIAM. J. SMITH, late firm of Pearson vV Smith. I have been troubled, more or less, for five yean, with inflammatory rheumatism. For the last six mouths I have suffered beyond description. My limbs were badly swollen and inflamed; it was with great pain and difficulty that I could move. My case was well known by thousands of citizens in Portland. I am to-dav a well man, and I was cured by the University Medicine, and Acapunctnration. CAPT. W. S. PENNELL, 18 Grey St. Tills may certify that I had been suffering with the “Rheumatism” lor five months, and at that time it seized my right hip and leg, down to the foot. This the physicians called “Sciatic.” I tried many kinds of highly recommended medicines which I took for the blood. Still I got no relief tor seven months more, all the time doing my best, with as good advisers as wo have in our city. Finally, I called at the New York University Branch, and the proprietor said he could help help me. So I com menced on bis medicine, anti in four weeks I thought I felt relief, and in eight weeks I was ablo to leavt my cane at homo and have been well up to this ti me three months havo passed.

For twonty-fivo years I have suffered with Scrofu la and Salt Rheum, (or Tetter.) Have paid out hun dreds of dollars, and boon treated by several first class physicians without benefit. Some fonr weeks ago, I commenced using the University Medicines. At the time my forehead and head were covered with sores and scalincss of the skin; also my tonguo was covered with small ulcers. I am to-uay free from all the above troubles, and can heartily recommend those medicines to the aftiictrid. S. C. MUNSEY, 27 Chestnut Street. Portland, January 24,1870. I have been troubled with Scrofula all my lifetime, and Neuralgia In tho head seven years and have con sulted good physicians from Maine to New York without any benefit whatever. 1 have taken six bottles of the Cancer Plant and one and one-hair of the Neuralgia Elixir, and a little of some other kinds and I now feel bettor than I ever was before in my life I cannot say with Mr. Munsey, that I feed twenty years younger, being only twenty-eight, but can say i never Colt so young to my knowledge in my 11I think the worth of I ho Medicine cannot bo esti mated in words or money.

All kinds of operations Mere performed on iny eyes, and all to no good results. Finally the disease prin cipally settled in my body, limbs and feet, and at times in an aggravated way. Last summer I was, from some cause, weak In my spine and kidneys, and it was at time* verv hard to retain the urine. Seeing your advertisim«ntin tho Commercial, l bought a bottle ot VEGETINE, and commenced using according to directions. In two or three days I obtained great relict. Alter nsiuir four or live bottles I noticed It had a wonderful effect on the rough scalv blotches on my body and iegs. 1 still used VEGETINE, and the humorous 6orcs one after another disappeared until they were all gone, and I attribute the cure of the two mscases to VEGElINE and nothing else. If I am ever affected with anything of the kind again, I shall try VEGETINE aJ the ODly reliable remedy. Once more accept my thanks, and believe me fc be, Very respectfully, AUSTIN F.
