'i ho Earl rodo out of tho woodland,
On his charger gallant and gray,
lib had followed tho hounds oter meadow and
Tho wholo ol tho livelong days
And now, In tho dusl: of Ihu evening,
Ilo had paused by tho roa dsldo way.
For lis stw by the bawlhnrn thicket.
A dtrk-eyed maiden stand;
Dismounting, ho stood licstdo her,
And with voice that was low and bland,
"Will you tell mo my fortuno, oh, glpsst"
Ho said, as ho held out his hand.
"Your fortune Is what you raakolt."
Sho saw tho Bold pleco there:
Hut sho touched It not, and her simple words
I.lko snow Hakes fell through Uio air,
And sotuehow sho tangled tho Barl's great heart
In her meshes of raven hair.
So ho rode away; but ho canio again
Prom his old, nncestral hall,
And ho met tho maiden by meadow and stream,
By brooklet anil broken wall.
Ills vows weic manyand fond and true,
But she heeded him not at nil.
Until 'ne.it Ii the radiant slarltght,
Which fell like a shower ot gold,
lie whispered attoryso tender
(A passionate story ot old)
That tho gipsy, listening, answered ''Yes."
And so tho Carlo's fortuno was told.

'Ah! Hints iust my luck: well, wo

tion of the littlo station at the foot of
tho Downs. 'When ho came again, ho
said, laughing, that it would bo from
II station, and that ho would dl'ivo
in a tly through tho Stoutdeno gate along
tho track, tho only approach to aeairhigo
road leading to tho iarm.
Mattio went away smiling, as ho
meant sho should do, and only paused
now and then to look after tho two mop
as Ion ! as they remained ill si'rlit. It
was natural tllat sho should feel a littlo
afraid of this unknown lady, Ad:iin'
mother, but that tear was tho only Minn
ow on Mattio's path. Itwns nu Idyl,

on tho lonely Sussex Downs.
On tho thiiil. dny they might look for
Adam to return, but that day passcd.niid
any nnolher, until tho days were weeks '
and the weeks month, and ho neither
enmo nor wrote. .Mattio remembered
how, when she had turned to look back
for the last time upon that homeward
ilk, she had seen his (Iguro distinct
against tho sky for ono instant, and in
tho next lost it ontltely as ho passed out
ol sichl over tho swellinc line ot hills.
Just so sho seemed to have lost him in
one instnnt out of her life. And vet sho
never lost faith and tiust in him never
ceased lo watch for his coming again.
Drew, alter a tune, cither iroadcd to
tlio step by his sister's loud-voiced argu

of wli.it was duo to .Mattio, not only took
pains to ascertain that the mnrriniru was
real enough, but the further pains of
searching lor and finding the address of
Adam Arnntago if i London. It was
strange how this giil and her former mas
ter both trusted Adam in the face of his
inexplicable silence; in tho face ot oven
moro ominous discovery made of Drew
when in town tho discovery that ho
id never mentioned .Mattes name to his
lolher, or alluded to JIattio nt all. As
for Adam, IMrs. Armitngo declared ho
as not tt ith her then, and tliat she could
not give an address that would Und him,

grew chilly with the breath ol tho com

fail. The deep mchincholly that oppress
ed her threatened to break tho springs
ol Jite. in order to escape troni Airs.
llankes tho girl took to lonely wander
ings over tho Downs, until, with the in
itinct of a wounded nnimal.th.it seeks to
endure its pain alone, or from tho ever-
present recollection ot tho last words of
Adam, when ho had said it was bv way
f htouedeiio tllat ho would n tutu, she
besought tho larmer to send away tho
woman in charge of tho house and allow
her to tako her place.
Drew yielded to tho wish ot tho wile,
whose heart was breaking with Iho pain
of absence and tho mystery of Mleiico,
and Mattio on this fogy day had lived
months at Stoncileue, on tho watch til
ways for tho coining of Adam.
1 ho tog increased instead of diminish
ing with tho approach ot evening. Drew
could not seo Ins own hotiso until he was
close to it; as ho had remarked, the mys
tery of Mattio's affairs was not moro im
penetrable than the veil hiding all natu-
al objects just then. hen lie had put
up tho hoi so and gone into tea, Airs.

been wont to set out with so much quiet

vocabulary of the farmer and his sister.

to bo sure, that is as usual, too.'

Mrs. Uankes, irritably. -

butter dish was set upon tho table with
a vehemence that made tlio teacups rat
tic. 'There aro no signs of madness
about Mattie unless you call her trust
in her husband bv so hard a name.
Husband! a pretty husband, indeed!
I've no patience with him, nor with you
either. As if it was not a common talo

t that instant tho shadowy form of
some one going round to tno trout door
passed tho window against which the
fog pressed closely. Drew sat little Har
ry on his feet, and rose slowly, listening
with intentness and a siirprisedlookth.it
mado Ins sister ask what ailcil him.
'Hover! tho dog docs not bark; who
by tlio mercy of Heaven, it is tho man

with a suddenness that caused Mrs,
Hankes to drop thoplntes upon the brick
lloor. ror Adam Annitngo stood .upon
tho threshold. Adam, pale and worn, a
shadow of his f miner self, but himself
Adam looked around tho room
though seeking some one, smikd in his
old fashion at Ilarry.gave a half curious,
half indifferent glance to, Kliza Hankes,
and then turned to the fanner.
'Drew,' ho said, simply, 'whero is my

'Waiting! Adam throw up his nanus

'Sho has thought you wero gone, after
all, upon tho voyagiyind that your letters
iiiiscairied. Sometimes sho had thought
that you were dead, Mr. Annitago, but
never Drew broke oil and held out
his hand. 'Wo knew you could explain
what had happened, sir' ho concluded.
Adam drew his own hand across his
ejes in tho way a man might do who has
lately aroused from a bad d renin and
has some troublu to collect his thoughts.
'That has happened,' ho said 'whichif
it had not befallen me myself and become

After parting from Mattio ho had ta
ken a train to l.ondon.where, arriving in
due course, ho drove in n cab toward his
mother's house iif Orosvcnor street, with
in a few yards of which his cab over
turned and Adam was thrown out, fall
ing heavily upon his head. After n long
interval, however, he opened his eyes and
recovered his conscioness, and, as ho did
so slowly nt first, but after a time more
fully tho astounding tlieot cry was mado
that his memory was entirely gone.
Howevcr.this state was ono from which
so said his fiiends, science could at will
recall him, anil tho operation necessary to
restore Adam to himself wasdeferred on
ly until his health iennitted of its be
ing attended by a minimum of risk.
It was while Adam was in the state
above desciibcd that Drew had seen Mrs.
Annitago. A proud woman, she was ill
pleased that he had married a farm ser
vant : -for that was tho one fact that,
stripped of Drew's panegyrics upon Mat
tie's superior education and refined man
ners, alone stared her in the face.
Hastily resolving that thero was no
need to embitter her own life by an at
tempt to recall toher son the "ill-fated
marriage, sho did not hesitate to deceive
her unwelcome visitor. Changed for tho
patient, and before Drew called at the
house in (irosyeiinr street for tho second
time Adam and his mother had gone. It
was in l'aris, months after that, that the
operation was finally and successfully
performed, and tho first word of Adam
was Matlie's name. Tlio first effoit of
his newly-recovered powers was to lelato
to his mother the history of his marriage
and tn write to his wife.
"God grant tho suspense has neither
illed nor driven her mad !" he exclaim-
Tt was to his mother's hand tho letter
was contmed, and with that, exclamation
of his ringing in her ears, Mrs. Armilage
stood beside the brazier filled with char
coal and burning in thoanto-roomof their
ipartinents in the Champs Klysces. She
was not a bad womau,bul the temptation
was too si rung to allow tins allair to un-
aveal itself, and see what wouldtmn up.
Why if tho girl wero dead, why no harm
had been done, and this terrible mistake
of her son's was rectified at once. If the
ther altcrnatite weio to piovo true and
Mattio had lost her senses Adam would
be equally free front her, or measures
could be taken lo insure so desirable a
csult. Mrs. Aimitage tore the letter
into pieces, and waited bv the brazier
until tho fragments were charred. Adam
isked no awkward questions and was not
oven supiiscd, at receiving no answer to
ns epistle, since m it he had announced
his coining. The first day his health ad
mitted ot it ho set out alone for England.
Such was his storv. When Drew had
told of his efforts to seek Adam and had
mentioned that no letter had read
.Mattie, Adam was at no loss at once to
understand the part his mother had play
ed, nut he nover spoke ot it then or at
my luturo tune.
Tho house door at Stouedene slood
liar, evening had closed m now, and
the chilly fog was still abroad, but
figure al tho galo was dimly
Adam hastened his steps.
'For heavens sake, sir, bo careful!
suddenness of it might turn her brain,'
cried Drew, lying a detaining hand upon
tho arm ot his companion.
Adam gently shook oil.
Suddenness, ho repented. 'Ave, il is
sudden to you and lo Mrs. Hanks, but
lor ino and lor .Mattie, whoso thought
are day and night, night and day, full of
each other, how can il be sudden ?'
Drew stood still, and Adam went on
alone until his footsteps became audible
and Mattio turned her head to seo him
standing by her side.
Adam had been right ; no tear was
there for Mattio's brain. All excitement
all surprise and wonder canio afterwaidsi
at that lust supreme moment, and Willi a
satisfied sight, as a child who has got all
il.wants, Mattio held out her aims to him
with one word
As Adam drew her to bun it was not
only tho mist, or tho darkening etcning
that blinded Drew so that for a moment
or two ho saw neither of them.

impute to us the mischievous iteicsy of
state sovereignty involving the tight of

a man educated by the general govern
ment, and taught the supremacy of the
nation ns the first and fundamental rule
of political faith, a man who holds his
commission from the federal go em
inent; who gets his siibsistance from tho
federal government, for whom no ciuer
is open but in tho service of tho federal
government, who knows no other object
of fealty than the federal flag a man,
in short, whoso every interest binds him
to tho support of the Union by tho most
intimate and indisputable ties." "You
say wo are still unreconciled to the north
and that in our hearts still burns the so
crct tlame of secessional animosity; then,
to repel the reproach, wo tako to our bo
soms tho man from whom wo sustained
tho severest blows in our confederate
struggle tho man who arrested our re
treat at Williamsburg; who checked
our pursuit at Eraser's I'arm; who hurl

heights at Gettysburg; who drenched
the soil of the South with tho hist blood
of tho South: tho man who smote our
ill-starred confederacy lo tho ground."

prevalence of a spirit of fraternal confi

would hind the Union together by ties
more enduring and.indissoluble than tho

Upon learning ths above facts, which

no laiger than a good sized plum, its
aims about the size of a lead pencil, its
feet half an inch iu length, and its whole
