The story of Marian Evan’s life has been variously told. Perhaps this is the most ni thentic version of what lia9 never been au thoritatively told by the actors in it; Mr. Lewes, the distinguished and clever biogra pher of Goethe, and a well-kuown author of philosophical works, had been unfortunate ie bis marriage relations; so, too, had Mrs. Lewes; they were a most ill-assorted pair, and she shook off the bond which galled her, and became unfaithful to her marriage vow. But Mr. Lewes himself was equally guilty of iufidelity to his wife, and the law of England docs this equal justice to man and woman, viz., it absolves neither from a marrige bond an account of the other, unless the one who asks freedom can claim to liavo been f. ithful to his or her own vow. The marriage tie be tween this disloyal husband and wife was broken in fact but not in law. They bad long lived separate lives when Mr. Lewes met and learned to love Miss [Evans. Miss Evans was a woman of singularly un attractive person. No photograph of her is to be found anywhere, and she shrinks from contact with strangers, for she is painfully conscious of her own lac's of personal charm. It was her mind and heart which won Mr. Lewes’s love, and the nobility and purity of this most pure spirit lifted that love into a reverence be had never before felt for a wo man. His love was returned, and the ques tion of thejr future was discussed by these loving friends and friendly lovers. They asked the advice and counsel of the wisest md best of their friends in this emergency, md at last, after much thought and di-cus ;ion, it was decided by themselves and their counselors that this beitse an exceptional case, it must be dealt with in an exceptional nanuer. A legal marriage between them was impossible, but since the affection which anited them was no youthful passion, but ;he stable bond of a love founded on mutual congeniality and respect, they would be jus tilled in uniting their lives outside »f the law, if they were strong enough to bear the social consequence which must naturally follow irom the infraction of the law. This they re solved to do, and from that time they have ived happily, contentedly, and hopefully to ;e her. All their best friends approve of [heir course, acd no truer wife to her hus sand, no more tender mother to his children, ’or she has none ot her own, is to found in all ungianu, man mis Drave ana true woman. Of course, in a society so rigid as in that of England iu the outward observance of the noralities—though it is whispered that, un ler a decorous regard to the conventionali zes, plenty of indecorous acts arc committed mil winked at—such a course as that of Mr. ind Mrs. Lewes puts them outside of gcucr iljsoeial recognition. Mrs. Lewes never vis ts the house of other people; she receives on ly her special friends at her own. Since she lias achieved fame, she might be received by many ladies who before this, would have re fused her entree to their homes, but she neith cr desires nor will accept their proffered recognition. She did not overstep the con ventional laws of society without considcra tion; she knew the price she must pay for a happy home and a satisfied heart, aud she is content to pay it, nor docs she find it too high. It was a perilous experiment, and one that no woman, unless she he as strong, as brave, and as pure, and as sure of holding her lover as Miss Evans, would do well to re ^Tliough Adam Bede was the first work vhich brought Mrs. Lewes prominently into jotice as a writer, it was by no means her irst effort. Very few people, like the Baren ts Tautphias, achieve fame as an author vithout serving a previous apprenticeship at iterature. “The Initials,” which made the lame of the English wife of the German bar >n a household word in two continents, was ictually the very first ; ttempt its author nade at writing. Blie was devoted to paint ug, but the oils and colors she used, being jronoucced in part accountable for her fail ng health, were taken from her by the phy iciau’s order, and she was literally driven to ler pea t > fill up her idle and heavily-hanging lours. Norhing is more wonderful in3the listorv of literature than the brilliant novel vhich this mere tyro in art produced. But Mrs. Lewes had no such experience of apid success in the path which she had en ered upon. She hetself tells us that she hid rr CilV" u''tiring and diligent wo.k r, translating writing essays and stories, vhich brought her no reward in fame, and int small compensation, in money. “Adam letle first made her famous, and her subse luent novels, “The Mill on the Floss,” “Si asMarner,” “Felix Holt,” “Romola,” and ‘Middleman;!),” have steadily augmented her reputation. Each Inis its troop of admirer* who consider it her best work. Sir. Greeley’ regarded “Silas Marner ’as her finest effort, hut wc think few would he found to agree with hint. fuside the White House. WHERE AND LOW THE PRESIDENT'S FAM3XT LIVE. asliington Loiter to Boston Journal, the four eastern rooms of the second story <>l the White House are used as offices by the President’s private secretary, Mr. Levi P.

The windows command a fine view ot the Potomac and of “old Virgin ia’s shore,” and from one of them the gallant Ellsworth in 1881 pointed out to Mr. Lincoln the “stars and bars” waving defiantly over the Marshall house in Alexandria, aud prom ised to bring the tebel Hag to him. When Mr. Lincoln next, saw the young hero bo was lifeless, with tUu rebel flag thrown over bit re mams. Fi\.m these rfficial rooms which are often ‘*fen by geiiilem«*n who have business with the 1 resident, we passed into what are known as the private apart men's. First we entered the library, which is fitted up with mahogany book cases, to'erably well filled aud i.ak turniture. This was the reception room ot Mrs. John Adams, for in her day none of the down-stairs parlors were either finished or furnished, and she used to have • her Monday’s wash hung out to dry on the lines stretched in the east room. Next to the ! library is the President’s bedroom, plainly lurnisbed, and opening into Mrs. Grant’s sitting room, on the other side of which is Miss Nellie’s room. The sitting room has blue curtains and the furniture is covered with blue, while pictures and books give it a homelike appearance. Opposite Miss Nellie's room is that of Master Jesse, who is a bright boy, and the especial favorite of bis parent*, who has just gone to California with hi* play fellow and schoolmate, a son of ex Senator Cole. The state bedroom is the most ele gantly furnished room on the second story and beyond it is the chamber of Mrs. Grant’s father, Mr. Dent, now in his 88th year. The tamily life at the White House Is very simple. Ail rise about 7, and a substantial breakfast is served at 8, tlie President bringing his fa vorite newspaper* to the tabic, and reading them as he enjoys his toast and coffee. Af ter breakfast the President takes a short walk, returning to bis office at 10, and re maining there until about 4, when he takes another walk, or perhaps a short drive.— Meanwhile. Mrs. Grant and Nellie have at tended to their household duties, received the calls of friends, and perhaps made a few. At 5—sharp—dinner is served, a plain repast, of which a di U of hominy i* always a part. Alter dinner there is an informal recept -«.•» in the blue parlor, with an occasionalJw t fer cnce on political subjects in the Pres • nt’s office up stairs. Such is the daily life , our chief magiitrate and his family. . Wheat in N’ew England. Among the papers of our iate editor, we find a find a communication from Henry Poor. Esq , who so often urged upon the farmers of New England the culture of wheat, believing that it would prove one of the most profitable crops to which they could turn their attention. His advice, wo have reason to know, has been followed, particu larly within the last year or two, with the best results in ou- neighboring State of Maine. In the communication to which we refer lie gives the following sixteen reasons why New England farmer* should raise their own wheat: 1. Because their climate is the bet t adapt ed on this continent to glowing wheat. 2. Because the deep snows of winter fa vor its safety and ct ltivatiou. 3. Because It is less liable to winter kill and rust than in the West. 4. Because the yield is nearly fifty per cent larger, as all the agricultural statistics show. 5. Because the rolling lands of New Eng land render it comparatively safer than flat praitie lands. 6. Because it is the cheapest made crop on the firm. 7. Because it is the surest grain crop raised on the farm. 8. Because two crop3 a season, fall and spring, arc advantages over any other grain. 9. Because every farmer that raises his rye and potatoes, can raise wheat. 10. t.'ecattse it gives happiness and com fort, and harmonizes the famliv circle, rejoic ing in the wheaten loaf from the home form. 11. Because poverty may pinch, and this is the farmer's antidote. 12. Becntse four and one-half bushels of wheat can be made for six dollars equal to a barrel ot flour, and thirteen to fourteen dol lars is the urice for a barrel ot the best quali ty. 13. Because the farmer should feel a lofty pride aud confidence in raising his btead from his own acres. 14. Because independence of all other Slates should stimulate this meritorious ex ample. 15. Because to buy flour empties the pock et; to raise it fills it to overflowing. lo. Because, in the providence of God, man was commanded to “till the ground.'’ Then let this occupation of raising wheat in Ne./ England become his special care and iu ■ crest. If he begins in doubt, clear sky and sunshine will dispel it all, and he will become the almoner and friend of his family and neighbors. Friend Poor's second reason haa been abuudantly verified this winter. Wc should like very much to hear from those among our readers who have given this crop attention lately, with the statement as to their success or otherwise, with such other particulars as would he of value to their brother farmers. - - New England Farmer. .nittl'ELLANEOlT NOTICES.
