BY J. INIIRARAM
At the close of one of thobit- gorgeous' tropical
days peculiar to the %ow latitudes in May and
June, a majestic steamer was ascending the Mis.
Steadily ascending the river with a majestic mo.
lion, the noble steamer moved swiftly along amid
the lair scenery of sky and earth; her wake glitter
ing and sparkling far astern, and heaving in the
air, as she went, a long path of daik, brown smoke
like a banner flung.oin !
The decks Were thronged with gay groops of
phssengers. Some promenaded the hurricane deck
*ruing upon the shores and enjoying the motion of
the vessel as she glided past then. Others sat in
parties conversing. From a group at the stern rose
the clear notes of a sweet singer's voice mingled
With the rich bads of ,a contralto: - Some walked
alone and apart from the other's smoking and mus
ing, or with their thoughts winging their Way to
hinnes left behind or in anticipation.
4mong the various groups that were dispersed
over the spacious decks of the steamer, w,dked one
alone. His air etas sad, and'he seemed to shrink
from observation; yet be scarcely aimed or return
ed in:his slow walk thai eyes were not closely and
with strange curiosity observing him. He-seemed
to be particularly .an objezt l of attention and conver
sation. Yet he never or very seldom raised his
trark eyes to glance, as though conscious of the ob
servation which centered upon him.
He was a man of very elegant . exterior, tall and
slender, with a dark face; and marked with a sin
gular union of gentleness and fire. There was
about him a certain ail of command that could not
fail to arrest the attention of the lowest and mean
The,glorions beauty of.the skies gradually bleat

a lady. There was ju,n light enough lingering from

Thais speaking, the man disappeared-11*rib" win

no time to cry out, but trusting that the sudden in

" It is a pity that she carklit sight of the Tennes
