eighth part of it is shipped here for sale.
With a consumption of one-fourth as much
as is required by the mill& hear Liverpool,
the bales in Boston for aiwhole year were

WWS as little kindness in the manner of her
gifts as gifts could have. Ernest was the
masculine double of bier, unforgiving, cruel

in return for a generosity, submission and
slavishness enough. Beauchtunp was the
least rigid, although the most passionate of
the four. rind was w ith ie., perhaps, th e
least unpopular.
In spite of what I have said against the
Mountemlils, they did no littltegood among
us, hi their unpleasant way. Poor men—
not such as we, but those who may be in
reality poorer, since they are something
like - gentle folk themselves—authors, mu
sicians. and, in particular, painter-artists,
often had a helping hand stretched out to
them by old Geoffrey audhissnns. I have
known as many a half-dozen of thin sort of
folk staying at the Hall together at one
time; eating and drinking at the best, and
driving and riding the squire's horses for
all the world as though they were their
own. The painters came in my wig more
than •the others, because of my office, for
the church was old and ram-shackly, with
ivy and rubbish about the big gray tower,
and, altogether such a building as delight
yoqr artists, who seem to care most for
places that are tiecoming ruinous and dan
gerous to other people. "Gabriel Grubb,
Gabriel Grubb," They would sing out at my
cottage door—"give us thy keys, sweet
grimbler." They were a mad let, and
therefore I did not take much count of
them, although I must say that they paid
their footing handsomely enough, and so
deserved, poor devils, to be richer. One
Mr. Miles Daynton, in particular, used to
pay me like a prince, It was the inside of
the church which he was engaged on, the
sculptures, and the carvings, and suchlike;
and very beautifully, indeed he painted
them, but, as it seemed, even to me, ex
ceedingly slowly. "Let me be left alone,"
he used to say ; "Let no one disturb me at
my work, and here's a crown for you."
About a score of years ago—in the June
of 1838, or so, or it may beayear Liter—he
had come for the keys one day, as he had
done many days before, and 'wra inside the
building, when I had otPlon to fetch
from the vestry the surplicehf a neighbor
ing clergyman, who, having preached at
Nestorton the preceding Sunday, had left
it there, and sent his servant over for it
that morning. The great door was locked
on the inside, as I had expected ; so, not
wishing to disturb Mr. Daynton, I dropped
into the ante-chapel through a little win
dow that chanced to be open, and thence
intended to get what I came for from its
vlace, without being noticed. On my way
under the north gallery to the vestry, how
ever, I was surprised to ,• . . • In t o * .

love combined together, as he looked upon
her transcendant beauty, to make him
swear that with that crown of splendor
upon her forehead, she was a very queen,
and he her loyalest subject ; that, with that
halo of glory round her, she was a saint,
and he her devotee forever. And she,-In

We did not hear anything of\Mr. and
Mrs. Iheynton for nearly a year, wlknsotne
of us reiul in the papers that she Idfd\korne
a son ; and very soon afterwards the )st
man said that he had taken a letter in , r
handwriting to the Hall, addressed to th
old squire. Had the girl, then, forgotttu
what sort of man her father was in that
little time? ur had poverty bowed her
lofty spirit so low, and so changed her lofty
nature already, that she thus courted in
sult and invited contempt? She forgot
not, neither was she changed ; but the ,
mother had stooped to implore that for her
child, which .the would have died, rather
than demand for herself or her husband.
My son is one of the Mountesdil blood, she
argued ; his grandfather and uncles will
not suffer him, at least, to be nipped by
this cold poverty in his youth. Would
they not ? If she could but have seen the
old man's smile when he took that letter.
and—knowing what it was about as well as
though be had read it—placed it unopened
in an envelope, bidding his steward direct
it back to her, she would have felt that he
would indeed, though, and that gladly.—
The Dayntons were very, very poor. Miss
Eleanor, that was, had not a shilling in her
own right, laid her husband's trade was
not a thriving one. Present ly a lit tle daugh
ter came to them, delicate, fragile as a flow
er, and another letter arrived at Nestor
Hall—to be returned. The third and last
came soon afterwards, black-edged, and
addressed in a somewhat trembling hand,
to tell that she was a widow, and the cause
of offense—she went to the length of wri
ting Mat—was now removed; but when this
letter came back to her like the rest, she
folded her sick child in her arms; and, with
her almost baby-boy beside her, set forth
upon her bitter life-journey, unaided,
friendless, and with the memory of pros
perous days to mock her.
About this time the Mounteedils of Nee
tor Hall been to thin. The old man died
without repenting him of his wrath, tailor:
giving and not so much as mentioning his
banished daughter, or her offspring, in his
will. Soon afterwards Ernest died also of
a strange complaint, the name and nature
of' which I am unacquainted with; only,
because so many of the race have died of
it, it is called among us the' Mountesdil
fever. Il is said that on his death-bed he
adjured his brother Beauchamp team that
the old ball and great estate should not
pass after him, by any means, into Dayn
ton's hands; and Beauchamp, as though
dreading to die, like Behest, early and with.
out an heir, married almost at once. His
bride, though fitting enough in respect to
birth and station, was one of sixteen chil
dren, and by no means wealthy. She had
been the pet of the family, and when the.
young proprietor of Nestor Hall had come
a wooing, was permitted to draw that ex
oellent prise out of the matrimonial lottery
without any domestic rivalry. Despite her
seeming success, the young Mrs. Mountes
dii found herself, dm say, very far from
happily matched. Her lord and master
‘`l P
de. it
- -
was imperious at all times, and tender only
by fits. "His disappointment at neither
heir nor heiress making their appearance,
so soon as had been sanguinely calculated
upon, would hare been ludicrous in a mean;
er person. The thought that his young
nephew, Theodore Daynton, was already
',sated upon as heir umptive to the en
tail, drove him half wild with fury, and
made very many persons,• who were certain
ly in no way to be blamed in the matter,
exceedingly uncomfortable.
What would have been mere vulgar ill
temper in a person of the middle class, was
of course but a strong proof of "force of
character" and "impatient of circuourtan
ces" in a Mountesdil; but we at Nestorton
were certainly not displeased when 'Mr.
Beauchamp took himself off, along will)
his unfortunate lady, to his estate in Ire-' 1
land. In a little time afterwards we had
news of her having even birth to a daughter;
but the family did not visit us spun till
the summer before last. Kin Gertrude, 1
then a girl upon the brink of womanhood,
was supr em ely fair; fairer than her mother,
whose beauty, indeed, was failing lament
ably; fairer than her aunt Eleanor—whom
nobody had heard of for about fifteen
years--and yet not half as fair as she was
good. If 1 seem to boast of Miss Gertrude
overmuch, it was at least a weakness in
which all Nestorton indulged likewise.—
She was higher-hearted, Owed more above
all meanness, I do believe, than ever woman
was, and yet she was not proud. Shecame
-among the haunts of poverty and disease
as naturally and unconcernedly as a sun
beam. Her nobleness was discovered main
ly in the grace that attended everything
which her hands were set to do, whether
they were pouring out the rich red wine
from the cellars of Nestor Hall, for the
comfort of the sick, or arranging in a bro
,jug, upon a window-sill, a score of
simple wild flowers. Those folk* who call
the poor ungrateful, and who have yet been
really good to the poor, must have erred
strangely in their manner of giving. The
kind word, even though the kind deed 'is
lacking, is not lightly held, believe me; btit
the kind deed without the kind ward gets
indeed small heart-thanks. Few of us have
Our humanperceptions so dulled by pov

gars by the road-side don't like to have
half-pence thrown at their heads.
Thus, Gertrude Mountesdil was the first
of her lordly race who ever reigned in the
hearts of those about her. When my poor
Maly was leaving me for Heaven twelve
rnontiks ago, the dear young lady spent an
hour a \day or more in our little cottage;
arid so I learned to know how good she was.
Master Wilmot, the young painter, since
Nestor Hall no longer patronised the arts,
was living at the Pig and Whistle in our
village, instead of the Mountesdil Arms,
(which did not may much for his taste,) and
met Miss Gertrude under my roof for the
first time. I saw how it was with him ate
glance, having had some experience of
artist-love at first sight already ; and when
he said that he must call the next day for
my keys again, because the altar-piece was
so very wellworth studying, I . walked a

At which he seemed to be a good deal

hung about the village weeks enough for
the altar-piece to have been copied a dozen
times, and as I .had seen him speak tb our
young mistress without rebuff, 1 made bold
to tell her, out of my love and duty, and
a.- an old man who was under a greater
obligatons to her than he could ever repay,
in bow Feat a danger she might be lying.
Her rising color and dewy eyes told me
one tale, and her quiet, self-possessed reply
another; but I believed the second one,
because I knew Miss Gertrude to be truth
itself. She said that if she had loved Mr.
Wilmot ever so mneh , sh e shou Id not dream

hour stole away her spirits. There was no
breast at home . Ntherein she could repose
her sorrow. Her mother was unaffectionate,
or. at least, quite undemonstrative of her
affection, and a victim to nervous disorders.
Her father had become,, in these latter
years, moody, suspicious and uncompan ion
able, from mental causes as well as from
The Itotuitesdils had been famous for
their iron constitutions and their determin
ed' wills; but Beauchatnp had been grow
ing weaker in body, and more wavering in
mind, for a long period. The broken man,
the hypochondriac women, in that un
peopled hall, must have indeed been cheer
less company for that young lady, She
did her duty, nevertheless, which was al
ways a labor for her; and when her father's
afflictions drew near their close in death,
she seemed, with her quiet usefulness and
undespairing ways, as though she kept the
awful shadow away. It was, they say, an
evil death-bed. The healing spirit who was
the sick man's nurse, was herself some
times the object of his fear. He would bid
her go, leave him and quit the house, as
the cause of all Ids misery and disease.—
His love for his dabghter was only mani
fest while he muttered curses against her
whose claim to the Motuatesdil property
Gertrude's birth had barred. His wife, ner
vous and terrorsst . ricken, went about the
house wringing her hands, and complain
ing that she was being left without a pro
tector, and exposed to the persecutions of
the bitter Eleanor., It was strange how even

Very lack of all communication with Mrs.
Denton of late years, seemed to her but
as the pause during which the tempest
gathers itself up for some terrible burst.—
The event proved her fears to have been
indeed well grounded. -
Upon the morning of the burial day of
champ 111.causteedfl, when half the lords
of the acres in the county were shambled
in the great dining-room, and the tesnan
in the 'steward's *lumbers, with their sc arf's
and _weeper', as! though they grieved so
bad a man was dead, and. so excellent a
young lady his hidress ; when hundreds of
poor folks, coma to see the show, were
thronging the pork,. and the mourning
coacher stood before. the great hail door,
and the hearse, with its black sea of plumes,
- was - awaiting its unconscious burden—Elea
nor Daynton came.
Her coach was not a mourning. one, nor
fts pace such as befitted aluneral. She sat
in a dirty, travel-stained post-chaise, whirl
ed by four horses, which scattered the
crowd to left and right, and routed the
army of mutes with little ceremony. The
post boys would have drawn up before they
reached the door, but the imperious woman
would not permit them, and caused the
nodding hearse to be backed out of the
way for her. She was in gay colors, con
trasting strangely with the scene, and still
more strangely with her own stern coun
tenance and malicious looks. Another
carriage followed, with two persons in it,
whom she beckoned to come after her into
the house. She swept through the entrance
passages into the great hall, where the cof
gli was still lying in state, and With a cruel
smile upon her face bade one of the domes
tics, whom she knew,' to " fetch the woman
and the girl down," who were, of course,
above, in a private chamber.
" My lady and Miss Gertrude ?" said the
man, in doubt as to whom she meant.
" Yes," thundered she ; " the lying wo
man and the cheating girl—those two! If
they come not, say -you from from me, it
will be the worse for them !"
There, by her dead brother's corpse, she
waited some minutes, no more heeding the
gaping crowd of servants than if they had
been stones, tar presently Miss Gertrude,
pale, but quite collected, came down done
to her.
" Mrs. Daynton," said she, firmly, "this
is cruel indeed. Ely mother"
Liar !" broke in the other, " come
hither in with me !"
She took the girl by the wrist, and led
her into the dining room, among all the
guests. Her two companions followed, and
closed the door behind them.
" Do) , ou remember me," she demanded,

by these revelations. iitel by the imperion,

one interrupted her or interfered with her
in the least. The two persons who acemn
pan ied her eorrohoratedtlStller statements.
and it, moreover, wits reported very soon,
that Mrs. N.auchamp, upon hearing that
Eleanor Day n ton was below. and the nature
of her errand, had, in a paroxysm of terror,
confesiseci everything that had been alleged
against her. The furious accuser recom
menced her denunciations unopposed.—
"Girl—bastard—cheat !" cried she, whiress

deadly white, never once quailed before
her accuser, or trembled in a you

nigh over. Innocent or guilty—
•' Innocent, madam, innocent ; I will

voice. A young man who bad just enter
ed the room elove the interposing crowd,
as a wedge iiriaves driest wood, and releas
ing MUV Gertrude from the hand that held
her as in a vicie, encircled her protectingly
with his own. It was the young painter,
Wilmot. who thus fronted the revengeful
wornr.n, retleetingin his masculine features
the same fiery determination which glowed
so unnaturally in those of Mrs. Daynton.
" Theodore, Theodore," exclaimed she
passionately,'hut with a perceptible vaccib.
lation in her tone, "cross me not in this
matter at least. Heaven is my witness, I
have nothing but your good at heart."
" I belies.; it, mother." cried Young
Daynton—for he it was—" I believe it, and
this is why I appeal to you with confidence.
Mrs. Mounteadil is toy aunt by marriage,
and must be respected. This yogung lady
—who is as an conversant with fraud as an
angel, and who is of a nobler sort, spring •he
from whatsoever source she may, than any
who have yet ruled in Nestor hall—is my
affianced bride, mother, and therefore, your
own daughter."
Eleanor Diynton trembled from head to
foot ; but she knew what sort of spirit her
son had inherited. and from whose side it
came, and Was silent.
" My lords and gentlemen of the county,"
continued he, " if, perchance, in future,
you may visit us, I take this opportunity,
although, indeed, the time may seem scarce
ly fitting, to introduce you to the future
mistress of this house."
The young man had lifted his hat, and
had led Miss Gertude to the stair-foot, on
her way to join Mrs. Mounesdil, when Elea
nor beckoned him towards her.
" I will go with her myself," whispered
she, in a dry, hoarse tone.
Theodore raised his mother's hand to his
lips, and kissed it respectfully.
The two woman then retired, and Mr.
Denton, taking his place in the funeral
procession as chief mourner, fulfilled his
duties, in the - unavoidableabeenceof much
feeling, I must say, with admirable credit.
The rate visit of this young man to Nee
torton, under the feigned name which he
and his mother then bore, bad been paid
contrary to her wishes, but not without her
knowledge. She had dreaded lest his sym
pathies should be in any degree excited in
favor of the young usurper and her heart
was cruelly wrung upon fin, on his re
turn—although he confessed It not—that
her boy had indeed fallen in love with his
worst foe. Dotingly fond of him as she
was, she could not br ing herself to contem
plate such a union with calmness; and be
hsg aware by experiment, of the extreme
determination of his character, she had
come down to the Hall to compass her long
cherished scheme of retautkin during his
absence, wed witliontiottemi* him of her

Eleanor was melted, to coarse of time, to
wards her son's Gertrude. Her brother
. Beauchtunp's widow was treated in no Way
harshly, it being, indeed, abundantly mani
fest that she had been but the tool of her
husband. She voluntarily preferred, how
ever, to retire with her jointure to her
family, rather than to remain mistress of
Nestor Hall. There, then, the stately
Eleanor now bears rule, her government
greatly tempered, however, by the mild in
fluence of her beloved . daughter-in-law ;
and there the young painter tices his
art without much eye to a purchaser. The
old church, scene of his mother's betrothal,
and my little cottage, wherein he first be
held his bride, are, I think, his two favorite
subjects. His wife has taught him to look
upon the dwellings of the poor from other
than the mere picturesque pant of view.
It appears that in the eastern portion of
that good old State whose staple producible
are " pitch, tar, turpentine and lumber,"
some remarkable fossil discoveries have
been recently made, among which, is what
appeared to be a portion of a vessel's thick,
some forty feet in length and ' a
dose resemblance to lignite. The time
been when the discovery of such a remise r
able fossiliferous specimen would have set
all the geologists and sirclueologists of the
col= by on their heads; but at this enlighten
ed period of the world's history, when the
duty of not only managing, but explaining
all things terrestrial, has devolved upon a
class of men known as editors, it excites
no surprise ; for the simple reason that,
whatever occurs on the earth, or whatever
is discovered above or beneath, or in the
waters around it; is certain of a speedy and
satisfactory solution. See how easily the
editor of the Wilmington Reeedd settles
this fossil matter :
How this vestige of human labor and
art came there,,is a question easy of solu
tion. We understand that some erudite
geologists say that somewhere in Baden
county is found the oldest known geologi
cal formation in: the world. If this be so,
if this is the oiliest part of the world, it
must, of course; have been the first ready
for the residence of man, and the first
occupied by him ; ergo. the Garden of Eden
was somewhere in the Cape Fear region,
which was then a better fruit growing
country than it is now. We think Adam
must have settled somewhere around this
way. for all the people claim to be descend
ed from him. If Adam and Eve started
life in eastern North Carolina, it is not
probable that Noah wandered far from the
old homestead. This supposition gains
strength when we consider kicrw Noah pitch
ed his ark. Where else could he have got
so much or so h pitch or other navel
stores to pitch within and without
Following up the train of reasoning, why
should not these fossil remains have come
