chapter xiv. (Continued.)
Under some other pretext, Edward had
the ground underneath the plane-trees
cleared of bushes and grass and moss.
And now first could be seen the beauty of
their forms, together with tlieir lull
heiguth and spread, right up from the
earth., J|e was delighted with them. It
was just this very time of the year that
he had planted them. How long ago
could it have been? be said to himself.
As soon as he got home, he turned over
the old diary boohs, which bis father, es.
pecially when in the country, was very
careful in keeping. He might not find an
entry of this particular planting, but an*
other important domestic matter, which
Edward well remembered, and which had
occurred on the same day, would surely
be mentioned. He turned over a few
volumes/ The circumstance he was look*
ing for was there. Hqw amazed, how
overjoyed he was, when he discovered
the strangest coincidence! The day and
the year on which be bad planted those
trees, was the very day, the very year,
when Ottilie was born.
The long-wished-for morning dawned
at last on Edward; and very soon a num
ber of guests arrived. They bad sent out
a large, number of invitations, and many
who had missed the laying of the founda
tion-stone, which was reported to have
been so charming, were the more careful
not to be absent on the second festivity.
Before dinner the carpenter’s people
appeared, with music, in the court of the
castle. They bore an immense garland
of flowers, composed of a number of sin*
gte wreathes, winding in and out, one
above the other; saluting the company,
they made request, according to custom,
for silk bapdkerchiefs and ribbons, at the
bands of the fair sex, with which to dress
themselves out. When the. castle party
went into the dining-hall, they marched
offsinging and shouting, and after amus
ing tbemselvea awhile in the village, and
coaxing many a ribbon out of the women
there, old and yhung, they came at last,
with crowds behind themand crowds ex
pecting them, out upon the height where
the park-house was now After
dinner, Charlotte rather held back_J»er
guests. She did not wish that there
should be any solemn or formal proces
sion, and they found their way in little
parties, broken up, as they pleased, with
out rule or order, to the scene of action.
Charlotte staid behind with Ottilie, and
-did not improve matters by doing so. For
Ottilie being really the last that .appear
ed, it seemed as if the trumpets and the
clarionets bad only been waiting for her,
and as if the gayeties had been ordered
to commence directly on her arrival.
the house, it had been hung with green
boughs and flowers. They had dressed it
out in an architectural fashion, according
to a design of the Captain’s; only that,
without his knowledge, Edward had desir
ed the Architect to work in the date upon
the cornice in flowers, acd this was nec-
esaarily permitted to remain. The Cap
tain ;bad only arrived in time to prevent
Ottilia’s name from figuring in splendor
on the gable. The beginning, which bad
been made for this, he contrived to turn
skillfully to some other use, and to get
rid of such of the letters as had beeu al
The garland was set up, and was to be
seen far and wile about the country.
The flags and the ribbons fluttered gay
ly in the air; and a short oration was, the
greater-part of it, dispersed by the wind.
The solemnity was at end. There was
now to be a dance on the sm >oth lawn in
front of the building, which hai been
enclosed with boughs and branches. A
gayly-dressed working mason took Ed
ward up to a smart-looking girl of the
village, and called himself upon Ottilie,
who stood out with him. two
couples speedily fonnd others to follow
them, and Edward contrived pretty soon
to change partners, catching Ottilie, and
making the round with her. The young
er part of the company joined merrily in
the dance with the people, while the cid
er among them stood and looked on.
Then, before they broke up and walked
about, an order was given that they
should all collect at sunset under the
plane-trees. Edward was the first upon
the spot, ordering everything, and mak
ing bis arrangements with his valet, who
was to be on the other side, in company
with the firework-maker, managing his
exhibition of the spectacle.
The Captain was far from satisfied at
some of the preparations which be saw
made; and be endeavored to get a word
with Edward about the crush of specta
tors which was to be expected. But the
latter, somewhat hastily, begged that he
might be allowed .to manage this part of
the day's amusement himself.
The upper end of the embankment
having been recently raised, was still far l
from compact. Is .bad been staked, but
there was no upon it, and the earth
was uneven and I isecure. The crowd
pressed on, however, in great numbers,
i The sun went down, and the castle party j
1 was served with refreshments under the j
, plant -:iees, l*' [ass the time till it should ]
become sufficiently dark. The place was
approved of ueydnJ measure, and they
looked forward to frequently enjoying the
view over so lovely a sheet of water, on
future occasions. ! .
A calm evening, ft perfect absence of
wind, promised everything in -Jfavor of
the spectacle, when suddenly loud and
violent shrieks waa heard. Large masses
of the earth bad. given away on the edge
of the embankment, and a number of peo*
pie were precipitated in the water., The
pressure from the throng bad gone on in
creasing till at last it had become more
than the newly-laid soil would bear, and
the bank had fallen iu; Everybody want*
ed to obtain the beat place, and now
there was no getting either backwards or
People ran this apd that way, more to
see what was going on than to render as
sistance. What could be done when no
one could reach the place ?
The Captain, with a few .determined
persons, hurried down hud drove the
crowd off the embankment back upon the
shore, and in order that those who were
really of service might have free room to
move. One way or another they contriv
ed to seize hold of such as were sinking ;
and with or without assistance all who
bad teen m the water were got out safe
upon the bank, with the exception of one
boy, whose.struggles In bis fright, instead
of bringing him nearer the embankment,
had only carried him further away from it.
His strength seemed to be failing—now on
iy a hand was seen above tbs surface, and
now a foot. By an unlucky chance the
boat was on the opposite shore filled
with firewoaks—it was a long business to
unload it, and help was slow in coming.
The Captain’s resolution was taken ; he
flung off bis coat; all eyes were directed
towards him, and bis sturdy vigorous fig*
ure gave every one hope and confidence ;
but a cry of surprise rose out of the crowd
as they saw him fling himself into the wa
ter—every eye watched him as the strong
swimmer swiftly reached the boy, and
bore him, although to appearance dead, to
Ijfow came up the boat. The Captain
stepped inland examined whether there
were any still missing, or whether they
were all safe. The surgeon was speedily
on the spot, and took charge of the inan
imate boy. Charlotte joined them, and
entreated the Captain to go now and
take care of himself, to harry back to the
castle and change his clothes. He would
not. go, however, till persons on whose
sense he could rely, who had been cl ise
to the spot at the time of the accident,
and who had assisted la saving those who
bad fallen in, assured him that all were
Charlotte saw him on his way to the
house, aud she remembered that the wine
and the tea, and everything else which he
could want, had been locked up, for fear
any of the servants should take advan
tage of the disorder of the holiday, as on
such occasions they are apt to do. ' She
hurried through the scattered groups of
her company, which were loitering about
the plane trees. Edward, was thnie, talk
ing to every oner—beseeching every one
to say; He would give the signal direct
ly, and the fireworks should begin. Char
lotte went up to him and entreated him
to put off au amusement which was do
longer in place, and which at the present
moment no one could enjoy. She remind
ed him of what ought to be douq for the
boy who bad been saved, and for his pre
“The surgeon will do whatever is right,
no doubt," replied Edward. “He is pro
vided with everything which he can
want, and. we should ojnly be in the way
if we crowded about him with our anxie
Charlotte persisted in her opinion, and
made a sign to Ottiiie, Who at once pre
pared to retire with her. Edward seized
her band, and cried,
“We wiil not end this day in a lazaret
to. She is 100 good for a sister of mercy.
Without us, I think, the half-dead may
wake, and the living dry themselves.”
Charlotte did not answer, bat went.
Some followed her others followed
these; in the end, no ofae wished to be
last, and all followed. Edward and Ol
tilie found themselves al me under the
plane-trees. He insisted that stay he
would, earnestly, passionately, as she en
treated him tp go back with her to the
“No, Ottiiie!" be cried ; ‘ the exlraordi
nary is not brought to pass in the smooth
common way—the wonderful accident of
this evening brings u# more speedily to
gether. You are mine—l have often said
it to you, and sworn it to you. We will
not say it and swear it any more—we will
make it be."
The boat came over from the other
side. The valet was in it—he asked, with
some embarrassment, what his master
wished to have done with the fireworks.
“Let them off!” cried Edward to him ;
“let them off—it was only lor you that
they were provided, Ottiiie, and you shall
be the only one to see them. Lei me tit
beside you, and enjoy them with jou.”
Tenderly, timidly he sat down at her
side, without touching her.
Rockets went hissing up—cannon thun
dered—Roman candles shot out their
blazing balls—squibs flsshed and darted—
wheels spun round, first singly, then in
pairs, then all at once, faster and faster,
one after the other, and !more and more
together. Edward, whose bosom was cn
I fire, watched the blazing spectacle with
I eyes gleaming with delight; but Ottiiie,
j w th her d* licate and nervous feelings, in
1 all this noise and fitf d blazing and flash
: iair. found more to distress her than to
please. She leant shrinking agiinst Ed-
ward, and he, as she drew to him ' .and
clang to him, felt the deUghtfalsense:
that she bebngedentirely; jtbJiK/,'
the sight had scarcely rPwumcd its
rights, when the mops
their path as
ure, with his hat Is h a ad.stepped across
their wav, and begged is alma of them*-
in the general holiday he saidttiaihe had
been forgotten. The moon shone upon
bis lace, and Edward recognized the feat*
urea of thn importune, teggar: bat. hap*
py as he then was, it Was impossible for
him to be angry with any one: He could
not recollect that, especially-for that par
ticular day, begging had been forbidden
under the heaviest penalties—he thrust
his hand into his pocket; took the first
coin which tie found, anti gave the fellow
a piece nf gold. His own happiness was
so unbounded that he would bare liked
to have shared it with every one.
In the meantime all had gone well at
the castle. The skill Of the surgeon, eve
rything which was required being ready
at hand, Charlotte’s assistance-fell had
worked together, and the boy was
brought to life again. The guests dis
persed, wishing to catch a glimpse or two
of what was to be seen of the fireworks
from the distance; and, after a scene of
such confusion, were glad to get back to
their own quiet homes. -
The Captain also, after having rapidly
changed bis dress, bad taken an active
part in what required to be done. It was
now all quiet again, and he found himself
alone with Charlotte, gently and affection*
ately he now told her that his time for
"leaving them approached. She had gone
through so much that evening, that this
discovery made but a slight impression
upon her—she bad seen how her friend
could sacrifice himself; how he had saved
another, and bad himself been saved.
These strange incilents seemed to fore*
lell an important future to her—but not
an unhappy one.
Edward, who now tutored with Ottilie,
waa informed at once of the impending
departure of the Captain: He suspected
that Charlotte bad known longer bow
near it was; but he was far too much oc
cupied with himself and his own plans to
take it amiss, or care about it.
On the contrary, he listened attentive
ly, and with signs of pleasure, to the ac
count of the excellent and honorable po
sition in which the Captain was to be
placed. The course of the future was
hurried impetuously forward by bis own
secret wishes. Already he saw the Cap
tain married to Charlotte, and himself
married to Ottilie. It would, have been
the richest present which any one could
bav^made him, on the occasion of the
But how surprised, was Ottilie, when,
on going to her room, she found upon the
table the beautiful box; Instantly, she
opened it; inside, all the things were so
nicely packed sod arranged, that she did
not. venture to take them out,shc scarce
ly even ventured to lift them; , There
were muslin, cambric, silk, shawls and
lace, hll rivalling each other in delicacy,
beauty and. costliness; —nor were orna
ments forgotten. The intention had been,
as she saw well, to furnish her with more
than one complete suit of clothes: but it
waa all so costly, so ; little like what she
bad been accustomed;to, that she scarcely
dared, even in thought, to believe it could
be really for her.
The next morning the Captain bad dis
appeared, having left a grateful letter ad
dressed to his friends upon the table. He
and Charlotte had already'taken a half
leave of each other the evening before —
she felt that the parting was forever, and
ahe resigned .herself to it; for in the
Count’s second letter, which the Captain
had at last shown to her, there was a hint
of prospect of an advantageous mar
riage, and though he paid no attention to
it at all, she accepted it for as good as
certain, and gave him up fully and firmly.
Now, therefore, she thought that she
had a,right to Require of others the same
control over themselves which she had
exercised herself; it had not been impos
sible to her, and It ought not to be impos
sible to them. With this feeling she be*
gan the conversation with her husband ;
and she entered upon it the more openly
and easily, from a sense that the question
must now, once lor all, be decidedly set
“Our friend has left us,” she said; “we
are now once more together as we were —
and it depends upon ourjely/ea whether
we choose to return together into our
Edward, who hearl nothing except
what flattered his own passion, believed
that Charlotte, in these words, was allud
ing to her previous wi lowed state, and,
in a roundabout way, was making a sug
gestion for a separation; so that be an

“Why not ? all we „want is to come to
But be found himself sorely undeceiv
ed, as Charlotte answered:
“And we have now a choice of oppor
tunities for placing Ottilie in another
situation. Two openings Lave offered
themselves to her, either of which will
do very well. Either she can return to
the school, as my daughter has left it and
is with her great-aunt: or she can be re

the companion of an only child, she will
enjoy all the advantages of an early edu*
