of a young heart. mourning .4-er its first sorrow.
Ellen Sinclair was a newly wedded bride. She
wits but sesenteen ; the joungest daughter of her
fitther's house, and the spoiled pet of the whole
family, her fife had passed as one long day of
sunshine and flowers. She had been wooed by
one she had know n from childhood, and with the
consent of their mutual friends they acre united.
The day atter their marriage the bridal pair
left her father's house for the residence. of Mr.
Sinclir; in one of the interior counties of Virgin
ia. A few happy. weeks - passed - when Sinclair
proposed to toe 'bride to visit a gorge in one of
the neighboring mountains, from which the rising
sun frequently presents the singular aspect of the
looming of the mountains—the same phenomenon
at Bich is wituessed in the straits of Messina, and
known by the more poetic name of Fata Morgatia,
or the castles of the fairy Morgana. Ellen was
delighted with the proposed excursion, and search
ed every book in the house winch afforded any :
inlormatiou on the subject.
This excursion, which promised so much pleas
ure, ended in despair ay, death. They reached
the desired spot iii safety. The twilling was fa- ,
vorable to their wishes; the ascending iapors
caught the rays of the rising suit formed themselves
into the most igeorgeous and fantastic scenes.
Ellen IA as so much absorbed in this wonderful
and magnificent spectacle, that she forgot the
caution that :_fiutilair'had given herat the moment
of mounting her spirited steed. lie turned from
her side an instant to speak to the servant who
followed; the- mw,ement startled her horse ; the
• rein wag lying loose. on his neck, and feeling him
. a guiding hand, lie dashed oft at full
speed. Sinclair and the Servant followed, but
were unable to overtake her. Fortunately she
tort a gentleman ‘•ho succeeded - in stopping her
perilous career. Sinclair checked his•horse too
suddenly, that he. might express his-hanks to her
preserver. The animal threw hitu with great vi
olence. He was conveyed home in a senseless
state, and surgical assistance hastily summoned,
but the force of the fall had inflicted some inter
-I=l injury whith baffled the skill of the physician.
It was beside his bed, in that calm twilight,
that the y o ung wile knelt with scarce a hue of
life upon her feature.
" Oh, Ellen, my beloved, calm yourself—this
sorrow unmans me," murmured the dying man,
passing his hands caressingly over the head which
was bowed upon his pillow.
The deep sullocated•sob was the only repl.Vo
"It is hard to die," he 4:initialed, "when I was
looking fury; ard to years of much tranquil happl
ness,with ;you, my sweet. Ellen ; but it is the will
of Heaven, my best beloved, and we must sub
" Oh, Henry, my own Henry, you must go down
to the (mid, cold grave, where I can see you nu

voice.. It Will break my heart," was the almost
"My poor Ellen, this is a hard-trial for you,,
but you are, too young to, grieve always. The
thought is torture to inn, but even 3ou may lore
again—may tired another!" and his voice was
nearly staled With painful emotions.
" Neter, never! Oh, [(miry, how can you bar
low my •soul at this awful moment with such a
supposition f Wed another ! 'Give the wreck of
my buried affections to autither! Oh, nOOO !
the thought tt ould kill me."
" I doubt not yhu think so now, love ; but time
wovks strange changes in this world of ours.
We know not what v. e may do. 1. wish to exact
no promise front you. The thought is bitterly
painful to me, but should your present views
change. Ido not wish that the reproach of a bro
ken vow should mar your peace: of mind."
" Henry, hear fuel" said Ellen, in a solemn
tone. "Should I ever so far forget my faith to
your ashes as to lend my ear to the language of
love, to the voice of affection for another, may
your Mnn on my bridal evening come to the, and
reproach me for my faithlessness."
A bright any - fie passed °ler the face of the dy
ing mail He murmured—
yllepeat those words again, my Ellen ; they
take front death its sting—in Heaven you will be
all my own. Forgive my 'selfishness, dearest;
but I hate so loved you I cannot think another

His voice ceased to articulate, and again• the
deep tones of the young mourner thrilled the air,
with the repetition of those awful, wdrds. Aa
thei passed her lips, she felt the Mind that clasp
edler's relax its grasp—a *faint fluttering—con
sciousness seemed to hover a moment on his fea
tures, and in another instant they were the' calm
and passionless repose of death.
Ellen Sinclair buried herself in the seclusion
Of her own abode. A calm end gentle undaneho

Ler felt deep sympathy for one so young and so
bitterly bereaved. Vainlyhad her own parents
sought to draw her from her solitude. Two years
passed away and after many fruitless efforts they
at length succeeded in obtaining . a promise of a
visit from her at the annual re-union of the family
on Christmas, for that season is still held as a
festival in many parts of Virginia.
Ellen was once more beneath the roof of her
father, and many and painful were the emotions
which struggled in her bosom when she looked
around and remembered that the last time she
stood beside her native hearth, she was a gay and
Those who looked on her could not avoid re
marking the change which two years bad wrought
in her appearanae. The girl just budding into
maturity had expanded into the beautiful and
self.possed woman, with a quiet grace of ban
ner, an air of pensive reserve which was ex
Her parents were worldly-minded people, who
could not bear that their fair daughter should
pass her life in the solitude to which she had
doomed lies, 11. They surrounded her with com
pany. sought to amuse her mind and draw if from
the terrible calamity which had destroyed her
dawning hopes of happiness, and they succeeded
.efficiently to implant in her mind a distaste to
the idea of returning to her late abode.
Week after week passed, until months were
numbered, and she began to think it her duty to
remain with her parents. She was their young
est child, and the only one without ties which se
vered them in a measure from their paternal
"Ellen, my darling," said her father, when she
spoke of retdrning home, " you will not again for.
sake us We are old, and you are the only child
who is tree to remain with us. You must live_
here---4 cannot think of permitting you to return
to that lonely home of yours."
" It is lonely," replied Ellen, " and I fear that
after breaking through my usual habits, I shall
find it difficult and wearisome to resume them.
Yet, my dear father, if I must cOnsentgo remain,
there is one request I must make."
" What is it nly daughter—are we not ever
nihidful-of_your - wishes
"Ali, yes, my dear father, more mindful than I
deserve. But (and her voice sunk to a low, agi
tated whisper) there must be no looking for yard
to a second marriage for me—no attempt to alter
my views on that subject. I had made a vow to
the dead, and it must be held sacred."
" What !"exclaimed her lather, " was Sinclair
ungenerous enough to exact from you a - promise
not to marry again—young and unexperienced as
you were, too?"
"Ah !, no, father, wrong him not—he was too
kind, too noble. He asked no promise—l made
it voluntarily—and as the words left my lips, his
spirit departed. Oh, no, my father, never ask
me to break that vow—it is a hallowed one."
" Well, my darling; let it be as you wish. I
shall prefer keeping you with, us; but at the same
time,.if you should - ever meet with one you can
love, and who is worthy of you, it will be very
silly to suffers few words, uttered when you were
scarcely conscious of their meaning, to prevent
you from makief the home of au honorable man

you suppose that the death of one person, how

As time passed on, Mra. Sinelaireould not help
Acknowledging that she was far happier than in
her mountain solitude. Her spirits were no lon
ger wearied; she no longer felt that life was a
-burden she would gladly lay down. She needed
the excitement of society, and the social and high
ly cultivated neighborhood in which her father's
residence was situated, aforded every facility for
'The third year of her widowhood was drawing
twa close, when sharecoved an invitation to the
marriage of a favorite cousin, who would take no
refusal. Ellen replied that if the bride would ex
cuse her sombre dress and pensive face, she
would attend, and the concession wat hailed as au
omen of future success in drawing her into that
world she was so peculiarly fitted to adorn.
There was a motive for these efforts of which
Ellen little dreamed. She regularly attended the
church near her father's residence, and her moth
vo had several times called her attention to a re
markably handsome man who sat in the pew near
ly illmosite them; but she had not remarked that
his eyes frequently' wandered from his prayer
book to her own fair face. His height and the
turn of his head had reminded her of Sinclair,
but there the resemblance ceased.
The broad brow, finely chiselled features, and
clear dark eye ofthe stranger, were all unlike
the youthful bloom of him who had won her yining"
affections. She frequently heard Mr. Peytowspe
ken of as a man of distinguished endowments, Who
had spent several years in the South of Europe
with au only and beloved sister, for the benefit of
whose health the journey had been vainly under
taken. -The circumstances had nearly passed
from her mind when she Was introduced to him
at the wedding as the Intimate friend of the
M ton had fallen in love with her from his cas
ual view of her at church, and the eulogiums of
his friend's affianced bride, who looked on Mrs.
Sinclair as as a "bright particular star," had deep
ened the impression. The circumstance of the
marriage threw a romantic interest around her
history, and when be looked on theyouthful brow
with a shade of passiv€ pensiveness that seemed
to breath a hollowed charm over her beauty, he
telt that she was the only woman he had ever
known before to whom his heart could bow with
the bondage of affection.
Yet how speak df love to one who yet wore
the deepest mourning—who never joined in the
mirth of the light-hearted It would seem al
must like sacrilege to breathe to her ear the wild
Fission that filled his heart, yet its very hopeless
ness appeared to add to its fervor.
But ere long a new hope dawned ou bun. El
len was surrounded hr the gay and joyous of her
own age. Her disposition was naturally buoy
ant ; her spirits rose; the cords she had believed
forever snapped, ugam, thrilled to the touch'
joy.' When the bounas of grief were once, sev
ered the action waseomplete. She still reveren
ced the memory of her tinstlove, and if her heart

As the day; appointed for her marriage drew

to rise from an open space on which the moon's
radiance was poured without obstruction from
the surrounding shrubbery. The shadow arose
slowly, and gradually assumed the waving outline
of a human form wrapped in the garments of the
tomb. It approached the spot on which she stood,
and the features of Henry Sinclair, wearing a
look of sad reproach, were distinctly visible to
her as the shade glided between herself and the
newly wedded lord.

Long, long, was it before she recovered from

visitation was the offspring of an over wrought

vagaries of an excited imagination are producing
