THE VEILED BRIDE
A STORY OF ART
In one of the art galleries of Vienna hangs a
picture of Venetian life, by the painter Frances
co Mayez, which excites peculiar interest in the
visitor. It is an interior, an apartment in the
ducal palace, where three aged senators, evident
. 'the famous Council of Three, are holding one
of their secret sessions. One of them, a tall,
proud figure, with the finely chiseled, intellectual,
dark face familiar to us in old Venetian portraits,
has risen in excitement, and with a stern gesture
is addressing a young and beautiful woman, who
sinks fainting on the stone.floor. She is sup
ported by an official who seems to deprecate the
harsh manner of the senator. A notary, behind
the table in the rear of the group, is making a
record of the proceedings.
The story on which this picture is founded is
contained in a French romance of the seventeenth
century, and though no authentication of it has
been discovered in the Venetian archives, it pro
bably rests on a tradition then current. If not,
it is no less a true reflection of the character of
the time in Venice, when, amidst the gay pageant
of its flourishing and gorgeous life, rose that dark,
mysterious tribunal—irresponsible, remorseless,
irresistible as Fate, which held in its unseen hand
the whole power of she republic. The story rune
Valenzia was the daughter of the Senator
Gradenigo ; by birth, therefore, one of the first
ladies of Venice. She had all the rich beauty of
her countrywomen, with this remarkable distinc-
tion, admired in proportion to its rareness, that
her hair was of the loveliest, blonde color, chang
ing in the sun to gold, and was so abundant that
it. fell in heavy shining waves below her knees.
A beautiful Italian woman of nineteen could
not be without a lover, and Valenzia had already
yielded the first bfoorn of her heart, to the young
patrician Leonardo. Whether from necessity or
the Mere caprice of youthful fancy, the attach
ment was kept a secret from their respective
families, and "the young pair met only in the
palace of Leonardo's bosom friend, Antonio loos
carini, Even he was not intrusted with the
name of the lady who stole, closely veiled, into
his house, nor had he ever been favored with a
glimpse of •her face. But the glowing eulogies
of her charms to which ho was obliged to listen
—especially - the description of her wonderful
hair—uxeited his imagination all the more, and
the idea fastened itself iu his mind that in those
golden threads lay some magic power which had
enthrilled his friend, for heretofore Leonardo had
been insensible to female attractions.
For a time the course of true love ran smooth.
Then, suddenly, as if the earth had opened to
him, Leonardo disappeared, and a few days after
his dead body was found in one of the canals
which vein the oily of the sea. A deep wound
in his breast showed that he had been the victim
of assassination. Valenzia's grief had all the
stormy, violence of a first great sorrow. But far
more profound was the affliction of the friend,
who fully believed that the fatal stab had been
given by a Jealous rival.
JORNING, JANUARY 17,
"Leonardo! Leonardo!" he exclaimed, as ho
gazed on the bloody corpse, "the accursed blonde
locks are answerable for this deed!"
From that hour an unconquerable aversion to
blotide hair took possession of him, which grew
into a monomania. It was the fashion of the
day in Venice for the ladies to bleach their dark
hair by the use of chemical preparations, and so
strong and undisguised was his contempt for the
practice as to obtain for him the name of the
1, Blonde hair Hater,"
His relatiVelEi, anxious to divert his mind from
these morbid recollections and fancies, urged
him to marry. He was one of the handsomest of
the young patricians of Venice—his figure noble,
his face full of intelligence and feeling; and ho
had a further passport to the favor of the ladies
in his singular devoti.4:'in friendship, and his
corresponding indifference to themselves. Ad
miration, sympathy, pique, conspired to render
him an object of transcendent interest to the fair
sex. His friends led him from one gay circle to
another, in - the hope that he might, unawares,
find himself in the meshes of the blind little god.
It was all in vain. At length his father Settled
the question by an arrangement with the Senator
Gradenigo for a marriage between the two fami
lies!, and Antonio found himself pledged to the con
nection entirely without his own knowledge or
consent. But such marriages of domestic or
State policy were the. rule in Venice, and his
heart, having no tie elsewhere, he submitted
without remonstrance. Preparations were has
tened, and the wedding-day was appointed.
Valenzia had yielded with less reluctance; nay,
even with a degree of mournful pleasure. She
well knew Antonio, though herself wholly un
known to him. Their mutual attachment to the
lost Leonardo was a tender bond. His inconsol
able grief for one dearest-se her had given him
a sacred place in her heart. Her own lot, more
over, was full of discomfort - and chagrin, her
father being one of those stern and cruel men
whose iron rule turns the palace into a detested
prison. After the death of- her lover she had
wished to bury her sorrows in a consent, but
the old senator, who regarded his daughter as
simply an instrument of family aggrandizement,
had peremptorily and harshly refused his con
sent. Life with the honorable, gentle and true
hearted Antonio seemed to her crushed spirit a
blessed escape from thii bondage ; and thus it
happened that alto not only assented without oh•
jection to her father's plan, but became most
anxious to win the affections of her bridegroom.
Knowing too well his morbid prejudice against
blonde hair, she dared not reveal to him at once
the secret of her history, and accordingly stipu
lated that he should not see her face until the
day of their marriage. Antonio, utterly indif
ferent to the whole affair, had nothing to say in
opposition. But etiattatla required that he
should pay assiduous court to his veiled bride,
and these interviews soon began to have an un
expected interest for him. tier character, soft
ened and exalted by sorrow, harmonized with
the tone of hia own heart ; her sweet anxiety for
hie regard, the grace of her shrouded figure,
wove around him insensibly a tender spell which
he wished not to break. As hope reawoke in
her bosom she grew more charming and more
conscious of her power; the morning of a new
life of happiness brightened before her, anti she
looked forward with increased confidence to the
Thus the wedding-day arrived under the hap
piest auspices. A magnificent assembly was
gathered in the Gradenigo palace, and the .hand
some and joyous bridegroom awaited with impa
tience the movement which should disclose to
him the features of his bride. But that move
ment changed all. The instant that Valenvia,
throwing off het veil, revealed that glory of
golden hair floating glittering about her person,
the frenzy returned upon him with double vio
II She htte deceived me!" he cried, in a wild
burst of anger, and breaking his way through
the astonished company, rushed forth without a
word of explanation to Gradenigo, or casting
even a look on the deserted bride.
That from this hour a deadly feud, like that of
the Montagues and Capulets, divided the houses
of Fosearini and Oradonigo was a matter of
course. She blamed her own fraud, so innocent
ly meant, as the sole cause of the calamity, and
mourned her second lover with a sorrow far more
deep and lasting than she had given to the first.
Her father gave himself no rest in his efforts to
avenge the dishonor of his house. But for the
present he was able only to obtain the expittria
tion of young Antonio, and this under the honora
ble form of an embassy to France. He bided his
After four years' absence Antonio returned to
Venice. His welcome home was a summons, the
fruit of Gradenigo's labors, to appear before the
Council of Three to answer the charge of disobe
dience in certain points to the orders of the
Council. His bold defense, and the conclusive
proofs he adduced of the skillful manner in
which he performed his mission, procured his
honorable acquittal. But plots thickened around
his path, enemies lurked for him on every, hand,
and time. after time he barely escaped through
the warnings of an unknown friend.• That
friend was no other thian the true-hearted Valen
zia, who watched over him like a protecting
angel, nor even relinquished her chosen office
when he entered into a marriage engagement
with a noble Spanish lady. But •it was the
opportunity long watched for by her father, who
now accused him before the Council of a secret
alliance with a foreign power, and procured his
imprisonment. Valenzia had warned him in
time, and had arranged his Night.; hut, too proud
to succumb to injustice, he hesitated until iL was
too late. He was brought, in chains to the
ducal palace, where, according to the ancient
usages of Venice, a speedy trial, to be followed
by a speedier death, awaited him.
Valenzia did not despair even yet. By gold
and tears she gained an entrance to the Doge's
palace, and having won the overseer to her
interests, she descended with him, at midnight,
into those damp and gloomy depths beneath,
whose dread secrets only the' last day will fully
reveal. At any other time the scene would have

by the dull play of the water against the outside

fearful curse. Exhausted by the terrors of the

DEATH OF AN ECCENTRIC FARMER—BUSHELS OF
GOLD AND SILVER STORED AWAY AND DROUGHT TO
LIGHT AFTER HIS DEATII.—Mr. Abraham Ilershey,
an aged farmer, died at his residence in West
Ilempfield township, last week, and was buried
on Friday. After his death a large amount of
specie, gold and silver, was discovered in the
house, and was breughtt on Saturday to this city
and specially deposited in the Lancaster County
Bank. The gold was in match boxes, bags, Stc.,
and when counted amounted to $28,884 41. The
silver was also in bags of various sizes, and from
the weight is estimated at over $21,000. It is
not yet counted, but will not fall below this figure.
A great deal of the coin, gold and silver, is of
old issue and valuable. There was a half bushel
of old Spanish dollars, and any quantity of. old
United States coin. The premium at the present
time on this " Family Bank . of. Deposit" will not
be less than $15,000.
Mr. Hershey was an unmarried man, but lived
in his farm house, occupying a room up stairs as
a sleeping chamber and depository for his wealth.
In this chamber he kept. his " iron " chest, con
taining part, but not all of his wealth, for besides
the specie he holds bonds and mortgages and
owned the farm of 156 acres on which he lived,
toiled and died.
The accumulation of so much money in coin
by a farmer must have taken many long years of
toil to accumulate, and many anecdotes are rela—
ted how the old man was accustomed to bargain
for the hard metal. He was parsimonious and
close, but withal honest in his dealing% paying
every cent he owed, but exacting the same from
every one he dealt with. He has, however, gone,
and his hoarded treasure has already been re
moved from its secret place, and will in a few
months find its way to the pockets of the heirs
Since the above was in type we learn that,
on Monday another "deposit"; was found in the
house. This time the " bank " was an old
blanket, and on the contents being invest , tgated
it was found to contain $1,400. Nine hundred
and fifty dollars of this wag in gold, and the
balance in bonds, &c.--Lancaster Examiner.
AUSTRIAN CRITICISM UPON MCCLELLAN'S VENIN

Abstract of Governor Seymour's Message,
ALBANY, Jan. 7.—Governor Seymour sent in
his message to the Legislature to-day. On the
subject of national affairs, he says :
" Not only is the national life at stake, but
every personal, every family, every sacred in
terest involved. The truths of our financial and
military situation must not be kept back. There
must be no attempt to put down the free expres
sion of pus.dic opinion.
" Affrighted at the ruin they have wrought,
the authors of our calamities at the North and
South insist that this war has been caused by
the unavoidable contest about slavery. This
has been the subject, and not the cause of the
controversy. We are to look for the causes of
the war, in the pervading disregard of the ob
ligations of the laws and Constitutions. disre•
spect for the constituted authorities, and, above
all, in the.local prejudices. which have grown up
in two parties of the Atlantic States—the two
extremes of our country.
" There is no honest statement of our difficulties
which does not teach that our people must re
form themselves as well as the conduct of the
Government and the policy of our rulers. It is
not too late to save our country, if we will enter
upon the sacred duty in the right way. Where
it is the right of our Government to decide upon
measures and policy, it is our duty to obey and
give a ready support to their decisions. This is
the vital maxim of liberty.
" This war should have been averted, but its
floodgates were opened. The administration
could not grasp its dimensions, nor control its
sweep. The Government was borne along with
the current, and struggled, as best it could, with
the resistless tide. Few seemed able to compre-
hend its military or financial problems. Hence,
we are not to sit in harsh judgment upon errors
in conduct or policy.
" But while we concede all these.exeuses for
mistakes, we are not to adopt errors nor sanction
violations of principle. The same causes which
extenuate their faults in judgment must make us
more vigilant to guard against their influences."
The Governor urges that economy, and in
tegrity in the administration of affairs are vital
in periods of war. 1 - fe says meddling and in
trigues have thwarted and paralyzed the valor
of our soldiers and skill of our generals, within
the influence of the capital ; while our armies
have gained victories in fields remote therefrom.
EITATEI RIG RTS
The Governor says: "The National Constitu
tion must be held inviolate ; and he contends
that the rights of the States n•ust be respected
as not less sacred. There are differences of
opinion as to the dividing line between State and
National jurisdiction, but there can be none as
to the existence of such separate jurisdiction,
each covering subjects of legislation and juris
prudence essential to the public security and
welfare. (A consolidated Government in this
vast country would destroy the essential home
rights and liberties of the people.) The sover
eignties of the States, except as they are limited
by the Constitution, can never be given up.
Without them our Government cannot stand. It
was made and it can be changed by State agency.
This is shown by the following provisions of the
instrument. itself :
" The ratification of the conventions of nine
States shall be sufficient ,to the establishment of
this Constitution between the States so ratifying
the same_' "
‘• Again, three-fourths of the States can add to
or take away from the powers of the General Gov
ernment, by demanding a Convention in which
amendments can be proposed, which, if ratified
by three-fourths of the States, become parts of
" While they can thus take away or add to its
power, the General Government can in no way
touch one right of the States or invade their
The obligations which rest upon the States to
respect the Convtitution, laws, and authorities of
the General Government, also demand that the
General Government shall show equal respect
for the rights and constituted authorities of the
" To State legislation and authorities we look
for the good order of society, the security of
life and property, the protection of our homes
and all that is nearest and dearest to us in the
relations, duties, and actions of life. It is dan
gerous and demoralizing to show contempt for
State authorities and laws. It undermines alike
the foundations of State and National Govern
ment, by breaking up the social system. If home
laws are not respected, the more general author
ity will not be regarded."
On the subject of arbitrary arrests, he says :
" Our people have, ' therefore, viewed with
alarm practices and pretensions, on the part of
officials, which violate every principle of good
order, of civil liberty, and of constitutional law.
It is claimed that, in time of war, the President
has powers, as commander-in-chief of our ar
mies, which authorize him to deolare martial
law, not only within the sphere of hostile move
=Lents, where other law cannot be enforced, but
also over our whole land. That, at his pleasure,
he can disregard not only the statutes of Con
gress, but the decisions of the national judiciary ;
that, in loyal etates, the least intelligent class of
officials may be clothed with power not, only to
act as spies and informers, but, also, without
due process ot' law, to seize and imprison our
citizens, and carry them beyond the limits of the
State, to hold them in prison without a hearing
or a knowledge of the offences with which they
are charged. Not only the passions and pre
judices of these inferior agents lead them to acts
of tyranny, but their interests are advanced and
their positions secured by promoting discontent
and discord. Even to ask the aid of counsel has
been held as an offence. It has beet well said
that " to be arrested for one knows not what; to
be confined, no one entitled to ask where ; to be
tried, no one can say when., by a law nowhere
known or established ; or to linger out life in a
Cell Without trial, presents a body of tyranny
which cannot be enlarged.
"The suppression of journals and imprison
tnent of persons has been glaringly partisan.
Conscious of these gross abuses, an attempt has
been made to shield the violators of law and
suppress inquiry into their motives and conduct.
This attempt will fail. - Unconstitutional acts
cannot be shielded by unconstitutional laws.
Such attempts will not save the guilty, while
they will bring a just condemnation upon those
who try to pervert the powers of legislation to
the purposes of oppression. To justify such ac
tion by-precedents drawn from the practice of.
Governments where there is no restraint upon
legislative power will be of no avail under our
system, which restrains the Government and
protects the citizen, by wriitten constitutions."
" I shall not inquire what rights the States in
rebellion have forfeited ; but 1 deny that this
rebellion can BUSpend a single right of the
citizens of the loyal States. I denounce the
doctrine that civil war in the South takes away
from the loyal North the benefit of one, principle
of-civil liberty. It is a high crime to abduct a
citizen of this State. It is made my duty by the
Constitution to see that the laws are enforced. I
shall investigate every alleged violation of our
statutes, and see that the offenders are brought
to justice. Sheriffs and District Attorneys are
admonished that it is eheir duty to take care that
no persons within their respective counties are
imprisoned nor carried by force beyond their
limits without due process of legal authority."
" The removal to England of persons charged
with offence, away from their friends, their wit
nesses, and means of defence, was one of the
acts of tyranny for which we asserted our inde
pendence. The abduction of citizens from this
State for offences charged* to have been done
here, and carrying thorn ninny hundreds of runes
to distant. prisons in other States or Territories,
i 8 an Wage of the same character upon every
principle of right and justice. The General
Government has ample powers to establish
courts, to appoint officers to arrest, and commis
sioners to hear complainte, and to imprison upon
reasonable grounds of suspicion. It has a juslicial
system in full and undisturbed operation. Its
own courts, held at convenient points in this
and other oyal States, are open for the hearing
of all complaints. If its laws are not ample for
the punishment of offences, it is duo to the ne
glect of thine in power.
" Government is not. strengthened by the ex
ercise of doubtful powers, but by a wise and
energetic exertion of those which are incon
testible. The former course never fails to pro
dupe discord, Suspicion, and distrust, while the
latter inspires respect and confidence.
u This loyal State, whose laws, whose courts,
and whose officers have thus been treated with
marked and public contempt., and whose social
order and sacred rights have been violated, was
at that very time sending forth great armies to
protect the National capital, and to Save the Na
tional officials from flight, or capture. It was
while the arms of New York thus sheltered them
against rebellion, that, without consultation
with its chief magistrate, a subordinate depart—
ment at Washington insulted our people and
invaded our rights. Against. these wrongs
and outrages the people of the State of New
York, at its late election, solemnly protested.
•. The submission of our people to these abuses.,
for a time only, was mistaken at home and
abroad for an indifference to their liberties, But
it was only in a spirit of respect for our institu—
tions, that they waited until they could express
their will in the manner pointed out by our laws.
At the late election they vindicated at once their
regard for law and their love of liberty. Amidst
all the confusion of civil war, they calmly sat in
judgment upon the Administration, voting
against its candidates. Nor was this the only
striking ptoof of respect for the Constitution.
The minority, of nearly equal numbers, yielded
to this decision without resistance, although the
canvass was animated by strong partisan esaito
meats. This calm assertion of rights, and this
honorable submission to the verdict of the bal
lot-box, vindicated at once the character ot our
people and the stability of our institutions. Had
the Secessionists of the south thus yielded to
constitutional decisions, they would have saved
themselves and our country from the horrors of
this war, and they would have found the same
remedy for every wrong and danger."
" The claim of power under martial law is not.
only destructive of the rights of States, but it
overthrows the legislative and judicial depart
ments of the General Government. It asserts
for the President more power as the head of the
army, than as a representative ruler of the peo
ple. This claim has brought, discredit, upon us
in the eyes of the world. It has strengthened
the hopes of rebellion. It has weakened the
confidence of loyal States. It tends to destroy
the value of our Government in the minds of
our people. It leads to discord and discontent
at the North, while it has united and
• If there is a necessity which justifies that
policy, let us openly and honestly say there is a
necessity which justifies a revolution. But this
pretension is not put forth as a necessity, which
overleaps for aI. •e all restraints, and which is
justified by a gi :at exigency; it is a theory
which exalts the military power of the President
above his civil and constitutional rights. It.
asserts that he may, in his discretion, declare
war, and then extinguish the State and National
Constitutions by drawing the pall of martial law
over our vast country.
* * " There is little to fear in periods
of petZce and prospeejty. If we are not protected
when there are popular excitements and convul
sions, our Government is a failure. If Presiden
tial proclamations are above the decisions of the
courts and the restraints of the Constitution,
then that Constitution is a mockery. If it has
not the authority to keep the Executive within
its restraints, then it cannot retain States with
in the Union. Those who hold that there is no
sanctity in the Constitution, must equally hold
that there is no guilt in the rebellion.
" We cannot be silent and allow these practi
ces to become precedents. They are as much in
violation of our Constitution as the rebellion it
self, and more dangerous to our liberties. They
hold out to the Executive every :emptation of
ambition to make and prolong war. They offer
despotic power as a price for preventing peace.
They are inducements to each administration to
produce discord and incite armed resistance to
law, by declaring that the condition of war re
wives all constitutional restraints. They, call
about the national capital hordes of unprincipled
men, who find in the wreck of their country the
opportunity to gratify avarice or ambition, or
personal or political resentments. This theory
makes the passion and ambition of an adminis
tration antagonistic to the interests and happi
neas of the people. It makes the restoration of
peace the abdication of more than regal author
ity in the hands of those to whom is confided the
government of our country." •
The Governor declares that the President's
Emancipation proclamation is impolitic, unjust,
and unconstitutional, calculated. to create may
barriers to the restoration of the Union, and to
be miscou,strued by the world as an abandonment
of the hope of restoring it—a result to which
New York is unalterably opposed, and which will
be effectively resisted.
The Union, he says, will be restored by the
Central and IVestern States, both free and slave,
who are exempt from the violent passions which
control at the extremes.
" Those of the central slave Statee, which re
jected the ordinance of secession, which sought
.to remain in the Union, and which were driven.
off by a contemptuous, uncompromising policy,
must be brought back. The restoration of the
whole Union will be only the work of time, with
such an exertion of power as can be, put forth
without needlessly sacrificing the life and treas
ure of the North in a bloody and calamitous con
test. We must not wear out the lives of our sol
diers, nor exhaust. the earnings of labor by war
for uncertain ends or carry out vague theories
of extermination—means not only destructive
of lives and property in the South, bat also
waste of the blood and treasure of the North.
The exertion of the armed power must be accom
panied by a firm and conciliatory policy, to re
store our Union with the least possible injury to
The Governor concludes: •
At this moment the fortunes of our country
are influenced by the results of battles. Our
army in the field must be supported. All con
stitutional demands of our General Government
must be promptly responded to. Uuder no cir
cumstances can a division of the Union be 'con
ceded. We will put forth every exertion of pow
er. We will use every policy of conciliation. We
will hold out every inducement to the people of
the South to return to their allegiance, consist
ent with holier. We will guaranty them every
right, every - consideration demanded by the
Constitution, and by that fraternal regard which
must prevail in a common conntry. But we can
never voluntarily consent to the breaking up of
the Union of these States or the destruction of
