Well, the TRAVELEBS litis insured upwards of one hundred and sixty thousand persons, and distributed among -Uiem o^er One Mlligii Dollars in benefits. \Who can toll the amount of coinfott bestowed, of suffering relieved, by this sum of money divided among eleven thousand families ? In some cases it has saved deserving women nnd children from actual pauperism. In thousands of cases it has af- forded timely aid just when thnt aid was most needed. Aud nil these benefits cost about one- fourlh tho price of life insurance, and are available to hundreds who cannot obtain life insurance. Within a certain sphere, it covers more than a lull lifo policy. It provides a liberal sum in case 0 f death, by accident or violence ; and it also provides indemnity for disablement oaused by accidents that aro not fatal. Kvery mau is exposedito ncoidont. No man knows wlic-n he is absolutely safe. Oue in every fuiut-fii of all the thousand insured havo either died by accident, or been so se- verely injured as to receive tho payment of indemnity. No other insurancooan show such a record of benefits received in proportion to its cost. CL.STtDMAN, Agent, unocKPonT, iv. Y. |3T OFFICE—At J. 'Whelan's store. _^£| L.

But when sho reflected how deeply, heartlessly, and deliberately she had been wronged.; when she re- meniberecl with what dev6tion.sh.e had loved the deceiver, and with selfish cruelty he had treated her affections; and above all, when she compared tho actual qualitiosiof the man with the divine attributes with whichher •warm imagination had formerly clothedhim, she hated, abhored herself for loving him, and eTery affection and esteem was banished from her bosom. If roserltnient and indignation, did much to wean her from him, self-re- spect and a spirit of lofty pride did .more. After tho night on which, she discovered the heartlessnessofPercival; her scorn for him, was such, that had he returned to her and prayed for for giveness on his bended knees, she would have loathed the sight of him, and spurned him at her feet, Suph love as hers, when slighted, recoils upon itself, and shrinks into'nothing- ness, and such pride as hers, -when wounded, soarslike an eagle upward; smiles with scorn at tho author of the wound, and disdains, in its lofty indigr nation, to confess the injury or make a show of grief I But Clara, thenceforward, was not troubled with the attention of Charles Percival. 'He did not enjoy the/irf ation, but because, having some hopes of winning the hand and fortune of Miss Parsons, he felt himself under the necessity of transferring €iis gallantry to her. He scarcely respectedher,for thero were few attractions and less sterling qualities about her; and as far as a person, manners, and talents were concerned, he would have prefer- red Clara a thousand timesj but as Josephine had justly remarked, it was fortune he desired, and he was too sel-: fish to marry for love alone. Whenever Olora and Percival met after their estrangement, sho treated him with coldness which was not studied, and with contempt, which was the more cutting as be felt that it was real. It was then that Percival suffer- ed more than Clara herself, who had to struggle moro against jDride than love. Robert Rxissell was an intimate friend of Mrs. Mowbray's—the Josephine of our first part—and Clara met him fre- quently at her home. It was then 1 that the young girL as she saw more of him, began to wonder how she had to be preferred or ouon compared to the noble qualities of his rival. She reflected with hitter regret on the de- lusion which had led her to refuse Mr. Russell's proposal of marriage, and to entertain foolish hopes of winning his inferior in every sense, Charles Per- cival ! As the time passed on Clara discov- ered that she was beginning to feel something moro than friendship for Mr. Russell, and at the same time she J saw, with extreme regret that his love i for her (she know ho had loved her once,) was apparently fading like an idle vision from his heart. | Mr. Kussell was always Mnd and polite towards Clara, but he avoided her, and was continually reserved in. her presence. Unconsciously to him- self, ho was pursuing tho very course best calculated, under the peculiar cir- cumstances of the case, t o wiu the heart of Clara offeetually and wholly. Her admiration and respect were fast ripening into a deep and moro lasting affection that sho had ever felt before. Yet Clara feared she had lost his love forever ; and inew not how to win it back. If his pride would not suffer him to make a second otter of his hand, and his good judgment and strong mind would allow hirn to think of her after the first refusal. Such was Clara's reasoning on tho subject. Had she consulted Josephine.she might have been led t o think differently; since Clara had charged her with en- deavoring to bring about a match be- tween her and Russell, that lady had not seen fit to touch on tho subject once, and her young friend was equally reserved. Meanwhile an event took place which was one of vast importance in the life of Clara Leslie, Her aunt, the old lady with whom sho resided, was taken dangerously ill; and having few relatives besides her niece, and none more nearly connected to hor either by the ties of blood or love, sho made a will by which she bequeathed all her property to Clara after her decease. The old lady's malady was of short duration. It terminated iu hor death it the course of a few weeks, and Clatu was an heiress. The days of mourning—for mourn- ing was no outward show in Glnia Leslie—were pnsse d in heaviness and sorrow, and the young .girl began once more to minglo with the gay world.— She took up her residence with her old and tried friend, Josephine who was no less her friend, guide, and protector than before. Clara's old suitors, many .of whom she had rejected once, began to r enow their addresses. Russell alono made no advances but remained cold and re- served as ever. Not so with Percival. Although, Miss Olive Parsons had been the ob- ject of his undivided attentions for months, he now began to neglect hor and to fawn around Miss Leslie. 'Ahi I see .through, it all?' said : Josephine to her young friend one day after Percival had made them a call 'He is probably;engaged to Miss Par-: sons, hut he would now prefer you to; her for many reasons, and would bo; glad to get yon!' 'Do yoii think so ?' she asked. *I certainly do,' replied her compan- ion. 'In the first place, I am sure ho; dislikes her while he can't help admir- ing jou. Secondly and principally, although Miss Parsons is the daughter of a very wealthy marcher dower wo'd not by any means, equal the bulk of your entire property; and asPercivnls' object in marriage, IB to better himself; pecuniarily, he would rather get n. wife whose money is in her own hands, I might give as another reason, his §0. 693. vanity, which would lead him to choose a lady of such accomplishments as you possess, than one of Miss Parsons' un- r enned taste 'and indolent disposition,' •This might have been true a year ago, repliedClara, laughing; 'butI treated him so coldly that if I mistake not ho will not venturo to make any more advances.' Tho reader is probably of the sarao opinion as Clara, and-will bo surprised whonl state ithat our heroine's opinion was incorrect, In fact not many days had passed before Mr. Percival called, anddesired to speak with Clara alone. _ 'If pains mo deeply,' he said in soft insinuating tones, 'to meet with suoh cold .treatment, Miss Leslie at your hands, tell me if I have done aught to deserve it.' 'Have you ever done aught t o deserve : more>cordialtreatment ?' retorted Miss Leslie. Percival advanced to take her hand, but she coldly withdrew it. 'Can you not forgive me ?' he asked with an affectation of deep feeling. •For what?' 'For the provocation I have given you dear Clara. We were once on terms; as I hoped, of something more than friendship, and I feel that it is my fault that we have ever been estranged. I know why it was, but I had a desire to try your love I pretended a fancy for Miss Parsons, to effect my purpose, and ' 'Pretended?' 'Yea—for I assure you it was noth- ing more—it never could be anything but mere fancy. You were my 'first, my only love.' \Mr. Percival!' she exclaimed scorn- fully, 'I will not listen ' •Hear me far a moment,' interrupted Percival earnestly, 'I speak the truth. I havo never ceased to love you, cold as has been your treatment of me.— Aaid now I have to throw myself at your feet to pray you to forgive me. I am jours. Kill me with unkindness or make mo happy by granting me your pardon, for this suspense is torment' Clara looked down upon the young man with a smile of scorn, and spoke as calmly and coldly as if it were con- cerning a mere business affair of little importance:— 'Do you love me ?' 'I do, devotedly.' 'I cannot believe you.' 'Why?' 'Because I know you tp bo a deceit- ful, selfish man! But tell rue, would you wish to marry me ?' Percival started at the directness of this question, and answered not direct- iy:- 1 would be proud and happy to be- como your husband.' 'Hal ha! ha!' laughed Clara,scorn- fully, 'me thinks you have changed your mind since tho night on which, in the garden of Mrs. L , you said, speaking of me to Miss Parsons, that there was nothing serious in our inti- es to me because you. wished to amine yourself with some one, and you had not known her before ; that you never loved me with the deep and. earnest love you bore her ; that you had never thought of me as a wife, because the woman you chose must have your re- spect, at least, and that it was the fault of my vanity if I had allowed myself to love you.' The hot blood flew to Percival's cheek like a flame, as Clara repeated, almost word for word what he well re- membered having said to Miss Parsons. 'What slander is this ?' he stammer- ed, after a moment of painful embar- rasment. 'Who dares say I ever talked thus to-Miss Parsons ?' 'I dare!' cried Clara, with a proud curl of her lip, and a flash of her dark eye; 'I was in the garden at the time with a friend and we were forced to hear your conversation. Then I saw how I had been deceived in you, and from that moment I have despised yoiu - baseness. I could have told you this before, had you desired it, but you avoided me until certain worldly goods feU into my possession. Burhiow I can speak my mind to you. and tell you how I hate such hollow hearts as yours—how I scorn yoiu- selfishness and art.' * And with a smile of withoring con- tempt Clara turned proudly on her heel and left him. Percival was alono. Crimson with shame and panting with rago, he hur- ried from the house and and hastened to meet Miss Parsons. A month from this time his marriago with tins latter lady was rjublicly an- nounced, andthe wedding took place with great pomp and ostentation. But Clara was unhappy, and as tho wheels of time rolled heavily along, she grew more and more unhappy every day. 'What can I—what ought I to think of him ?' she said to herself whenever Mr. Russell was present to her mind—and that was very often.— 'I would give much could I but read his heart—-I would give worlds could I but feel assured that he loves me still. But he avoids mo continually ; either pride or dislike has estranged bim. I fear it is dislike ; yet sometimes I have cnught him loukdng at me with an ex- pression of sadness and tenderness which I thought betokened love.' Tho reader will allow that Clara was placed in a perploxing situation. Loving the man whose offer of love she had once refused, she knew not what to dp to win him back. One day Mr. Russell called when Josephine and Mr. Mowbray were both absent, and Clara received him alone, 'You will remember me to them, Miss Leslie,' said the youngman, taking his hat after sitting a few moments in the parlor, 'You are off in haste,' said Clara, with a faint smile. 'You will excuse me,' said Mr. Rus- sell, 'I will make a longer oall when I find yottr friends at home.' He had no intention of wounding Clara's feelings, but his words~*saiik deep into her sensitive bosom, and her face,glowing like a coal of fire. 'I'think I understand you,' said she, raising her eyes sadly. 'I canno turge you towaste your moments in unpleas- ant company.' There was a sort of bitterness in hor iones;;and Mr. Russell felt it. 'Nttyi you did not understand me,' he said quicHy. 'Your company is very agreeable Miss Leslie, but^-I feared—I thought my presence might not be desirable.' 'Have I ever given you reason to think so?' 'Yon know;' stammered Russell, em- bqrassed, 'tliat I had no right to expect •• anything different.' Tt would seem that you desire noth- ingdifferent;' replied Clara, dropping her eyes to the flooor. 'Miss Leslie?' \You shun me——' 'Clara!' The young girl raised her eyes with a look of tender reproach'. She was emboldened b y the thought that thotime wascoine to learn the true state of Mr Kusser\s feelings. 'It was not always so,' said she. 'True—.true!' said the young man. '0nce you appeared to seek my so- ciety,' pursued Clara. 'Once I hoped my attentions were pleasing to you,' retorted the other ' l r ou would leave me to infer,' said Clara timidly, 'then a t present you thought your presence disagreeable to mo. I assure you it is not sir.' Mr. Russell remained silent for a moment painfully embarassed. Then he placed his hat on the table, and sat ddwn by Clara's side on the sofa. 'You have greatly misunderstood me,'Clara lie said in tones of deep earnestness. 'It is because I love your society too well, that I have been led to shun you,' Clara started and again cast down her eyes, which were filling with tears of joy. 'You know once that I loved you,' pursued Mr.Itussell, at least I told you so; but you refused me. Could I think of trusting myself into your presence after that, and vexing you with unwelcomed attentions.' Clara made no reply. 'Time passed on,' continued her companion, 'and circustances threw mo frequently in your way, I thought your manner towards me changed. I even beganto hope that your feelings had changed, and that you were no longer indifferent to me. I then re- solved to make a second offer of my hand— (my heart you had already)— when an unexpected event made me ashamed tosue again.' 'What event?' Your aunt's death.' 'How could that influence your feel- ings ?' 'Having appeared as cold as passsi- ble towards you when you were no more higly favored b y fortune than myself, I was ashamed to entreat for your hand when yon had suddenly became an heirass.' 1 appreciate your noble sentiments,' said Clara with emotion. \But if I should tell you that a change of fortune haB had no effect on me—' 'I believe you,' exclaimed Russell. 'And if I should add that since you made me the generous offer of your hand, ray feelings have undergone a change—' Tf I could think you loved me, I should be made I*appy, exclaimed the young man. 'And if I should say,' pursued Clara bluahiuct deeply. 'tWt now my lionxt i» youis, tuid that if jou aiBdaiu not) to accept my hand.—' What more Clara said, I have not the ability to inform the reader, nor havo I ever been enabled to ascertain what was the lover's reply. Of ono thing I fell confident:—Russell clasped tho girl to bis heart and kissed away her tears of joy, and laid her blessing face upon his breast. And another thing I can prove before the close of the interview they were engaged, and their wedding dJty appointed. While tho result of this interview was the complete happiness of the lovers, it was the source of lasting sat isfaction to Josephine Mowbray. Clara Leslie and Robert Russell were two most intimate friends, to see them united by tho ties of love and in the holy hands of wedlock, had long been the chief desire ofher heart. She knew that Robert was all kindness and affect- ion—Clara all devotion and love ; and she felt that their union could not be anything but a happy one to both. One day, shortly after the marriage of Clara and Mr. Russell, Josephine visited them in thoir new and elagent home. 'Have you heard the n'ews ?' she ask- ed, as they sat down together in the parlor. 'Of what ?' inquired Clara 'Of the failure of Mr. Parsons,' re- plied Josephine. 'No I' exclaimed Clara and her hus- band in astonishment. 'It was a sudden and heavy failure,' continued Josephine. 'Hi\ Parsons, suppoaed tabe so wealthy, in the fact, was worse thun nothing, as they say. 'And his family?' 'His failure has had a strong effect on them. The moment his bankruptcy was made known, it reached the ear of Charles Peroival. An hour afterwards he left the oity. 'Where has he gone ?' 'Nobody knows. He left a note for poor Olive, stating, that he had busi- abroad which would seperatehim from her for an indefinite number of years, and perhaps forever. It is thought he has gone to Europe.' 'Tho wretoh!' exclaimed Mr. Russoll. 'He never loved Olive Parsons; he married her for money. And now that her father hod failed, instead of being thou- stay in advresity, and their com- fort in affliction he hesitated no t t o des- ert thorn, and bring more weighty sor- rows upon them ; for Oliver loves the villain, and the old man loves his daughter.' 'How thankful I am,' whispered Clarain Josephine's ear, 'that I discov- ered Percival's true character at the time I did. I Shall never regret what I then suffered, for the lesson saved me much misery, aud -snatched me, per- haps, from the terrible fate which has ovortaken Olive.' Board of Supervisors Session, FlUSS f)AY. Sp clat AE.TKRK0OS SESSION., TnmasDAT,. Deo. 16, 1869. : (Cotititiuid/rom hit wtik.) Your oommittoe think it b»''ar for the ooun- if, if our rate of taxation is considered too high to UDdertako'this enterpritiH'&t present, to bor- row the money for tha purpose,' extending the time of payment beyond the time when the war debttof the oounty and'olty will hayo ma- : tared, amounting as it doesto some $200,000 i&year when this amount ofladebtednesaoouhl, bo easily paid, itjnould'olso bo remembered that if we wait until our war. debt is all paid, some ten yyara rauat elavHQ 1 ; beforo we oau do, anything, and to think of our institutions go- ing on os now for that length of time wonldibo more than wo could well ondure. Provided that new buildings are erected, your committee would reooimnsnd that a sys- tem of classification of tin inmates be intro- duced forming departments for hospital, nur- sery, adult or worklug olf.il (embraoing those who are not totally disabled;) for both malo aud female, and accommodations for such chil- dren as may temporarily lo placed there. We; further recommend that such portion of the old buildings as may be considered most judi- oious be converted into work shops, and the most remunerative work he-introduced that h, practicable for tho class of inmates who are supported by the county, ffo have thus brief-. ly sketched apian tho furtUr details of which oan ba-easily drawubat orthddiSed hy subso* quent action. That those who are able to work iu atiy degree should b e placed whore they may do what they can for'their own support,, we believe will meet with tho hearty concur- • ronoe of all. To oonsider farther this suhjeot we lind that to support a pauper In idloness any longth ot time, they aoon-lose all self-mlienoo, and bo- ccme a lasting charge npeu tits public A working department also will tend to oheok the continued influx of a kind of professional tramps who make our alms houso a place of resort to reouperate somewhat from a life of vicious iadnlgenchs;or to spend at ease, depen- dant upon the support of the publio, the timo which should be given to manly exortion for their own benefit. The Massachusetts board of charities report tbo number of vagarant or traveling paupers at about 25,000 for the state of Massachusetts. Thsy have there provided o state work-house and by special legislation provided that criminal, paupers and vagabonds who may bo considered abio to perform labor aro tried aud sentenced to the work-house for longer terms tbau are generally imposed in jails and bouses of oorreotlon, aud aro under restraint until discharged. If wo go upon our publio works or into oar every day work'nj life, we Und men engaged whose age and in- firmities would os much dlsqualifly them from labor as many who are in oiu* poor-houses.— Yot the ontsidb laborer is not only obligod to work for himself and family but is also con- tributing his shoro by bis industry to those who are living in idleness. Thero soems to be a manifest injustice in this whioh oan only bo remedied by making all those who aro able to do anything iu our alms uousos contribute their shoro of labor for tho general support. Tlio result in tho Bridgowator (Mass.) work housa (although but a short time iu operation) is thus commented upon, \On the whole,there oan be no question but that the inmates uf all classes have been benefited by the change,while .... commonwealth has notonly reoired no det- riment, Lat aotually taken a stand of self-pro- teotion long needed, not iu any seuso to op- press tho unfortunate, hut on the oontrary to furnish moro efflolent means for thoir oare and relief; or, in other words, it may be said, she is trying to do more good among tho subjects of her o'larity without adding to the already largo yearly expenditure.

This sum, though not large, is by no small in the w.ay of*a beginning.\ The board of state charitl»s of this state r •- port tho value of pauper labor iu nil tho coun- ties of this state, excepting New York, Kings ard Albany oonnties, at $31,497; tlio expou ditures for the support of tie poor of tho same $1,292, 342, making about three per cent, of e.ruings to $1 of expenditure. Iu this list nf earnings Monroe oounty is credited with $2150. It this is tho product of tlio farm it is hardly a fair statement of the facts. This amount, however, gives us very nearly tho same p»r cent .go ad througboat the stato. Our ex- penditure of ovor $76,000 at present yearly for tbo support of tho poor and soon to reach $100,000 is of importance sufficient to demand our earnest inquiry whether the percentage of earning oauuot very materially bo iuoroasod.

The suit against the second bail has just been oommenced. Iu viuTtof tho length of time which will necessarily bt.ooimutned in-the litigations be- foio a finai decisis | u both suits is readied, wo had hoped (as wo .. ^ro led to oxpoot) that some proposition from tho ijfendants would to uiado for a full and complete aottlemont ot the whole matter on somo principle if eqnity bofore tho adjournment. But there is no j.r 08 - pect of this, for although several of the defen- dants seem anxious to do so,yet otke-sseem to desire that the suits may go on, apparently ho- ping to n-imburso themselves in part from the $30,000 belonging to the estate of Jasen Baker (or rather the county of Monroe) in their hands. « In consideration of .these foots, and of tho prostration of Mr. Bronsou, wo recommend to the board tiie appointment af a now oommit- tee who will thoroughly prosocute the claim to a liual decision, Respeotmlly submitted, U,.

Mr. Jeffords presented tho following; To the Supervisor! ofMenroc, County : GENTLEMEN : Tho undersigned, two of tho members of tho committee on Rush and Wheatland bridge, would roport that after tho adjournment of tho board ot the December session, we, in consultation with Slmou Do- Graff, tho contractor, concluded to authorize him to put au independent truss, or cord, ou said bridge, so as to allay tho fears somo had entertained in regard to the strength of said bridgo to endure tha pressure of a bridge of that length of span. Mr. DeCJralf consented to put on such independent truss nt his own expense, costing iu material and labor about $4CO. For that purpose hotontraoted for tho materials with tho Union Irou Works compa- ny at tho city of UntValo, tho company agree- ing to forward tho same as soon as completed. The troll was to have betm delivered at tho bridge on or about tho 2tSth of December, and Mr. IHUmff had in the meantime oaused tho planus to bu removud from each end of tho bridge so as to prevent tlio passogo of teams while tho work was in progress. A strike among tho workmen of the iron manufactur- ing oompany at Buffalo has oaused a delay of about two weeks, and on leaving this part Mr. DoGraff talegrnphed to the committer to re- place ibo planks on the bridge so as not to in- terrupt longer the travel. The plank were replaced on the 4th inst. and travel bna agam been resumed between the towns of Rush and Wheatland. The materials are expected uu the ground the pr.sout Week, and when the same shall arrive the work will bo immndiately com- menced. Your committee would report that tbey have recently exnmined the bridge iu all its ports ; that the ironwork and ma- sonry aro iu a proper and safe condition, and we havo no doubt but wbaf that baoatiful structure will stand and do good service for 'oug years to oome as warranted by the con- tractors.
