While Mnj. Lin'dtay was galloping from Blako f

advancing toward, it. He / had been out OTi

once finding herself the husband of another, duty

rose. Tritimpluint guilt is rarely given to re.
"But one thing only is wanting," he said "If I
could meet this Preston—this braggadocia—l
would at,Onco have my revenge, and get rid of all
po@sibility of future r;.vair."
As Win answer to this half emaressed wish,there
*cis at that moment seen, en the crest,of a slight
elevation in front, a single horseman, who even at
that distance, w i ns recognized as wearing the uni
form of Marion s brigade.
"Wheel to the ri4ht," said

and suddenly to his dragoons, "into this old wood

Lindsay thou2llt there was sornethine familiar in

when ho concluded that they" Were merely a scout

"Do you know those fellows?" lie said. .
The approaching horsemen were still at a con

with ono hand, while with the other he held back
the brurhweod to get on opening for his face, peer
cd long and eagerly. ;Then he •diew back, nod

"1 kno b 'em," he said, "least ways on o' cm,

"Are you sure?,' said Major

I, would ratheriose a dozen guineas than that you
'should be mistaken."
"Then you'lll keep your guineas, air," said the

him, Moreover, that it was to be a lifts and death

"Marion fernier:" an•i drawing hie sabre, he

ha' e we met?" he Med.
"Yes—and I have :veil!" `was the reply hissed
between his adversary's teeth.
As Major Lindsay thus spoke, he raised himself
its his stirrups, and throwing. all his strength into
one gigantic blow, be brought hie heavy sabre
down, right on the almost unprotected head of
Preston. Fora women: it seemed as if, the . tren
chant blade would cut through cap and skull, even
to the shoulder—and, had it ntrutA fair, it would;
but with a dexterous movement, ottr.horo evaded
the stroke, and . in reta l rn. dealt a side cut flat,

• But though foile4 in thisfirst attempt, each was
eager to return the charge, and wheeling
horses, they rushed again upon. each other. ,It
was Preston's turn now to deal the that blow,—
:He rode with very short stirrups, of which he took
