THE ANTE-NUPTIAL. LIE
Then began as hard 'a struggle as any
woman could have been called upon to en
dure. My husband went went up to town
that same day, and parliament sat late th•it
year. During -all that time he never wrote
o me, nor save from a casual notice in
the [pipers, did I know anything of his
movements. The intolerable suspense
an , l misery of such a separation may be
conceived . : My love for him, indeed, was
no lucre dutiful regard, but of that pro
found yet passionate nature which men of
his stern and reticent character seem cal
culated, by a strange contrariety, to excite.
Add to this, thatj%knew myself to be ex
posed to the pitying wonder and suspicion
of the world at large. '
Mr. Anstruther's character stood above
imputation, but lat the best was but a,
successful parvenue., and had at length
stumbled into some atrocious fault beyond
even his inflituation to overlook The
very servants of the household whispered
and marveled about me; it was inevitable
that they should do so, but all this added
bitterness to anguish.
Worst of all, there was a wistful look in
Florry's childish eyes, and a pathos in her
voice as she pressed against my side, to
stroke my cheek, and say i " Poor mam
ma !" which almost brok cony heart with
mingled grief and shame. She, too, had
learned in her nursery that her mother
had become an object of compassion.
It was the deep sense of pain and hu
miliation which my child's pity excited,
which aroused me to make sonic attempt
to relieve my position. I sat down and
wrote to my husband I wrote quietly
and temperately, though there was almost
the delirium of despair in toy heart. I
had proved that ad appeal to his feelings
would be. in vain, and I therefore directed
my arguments to his justice
I represented to him briefly that his
prolonged, neglect and desertion would
soon irretrievably place me in the eyes of
the world in the position of a guilty wift ,- ;'
and that for my own sake, but still more
for the sake of our daughter, I protested
against such injustice. I told him, if
forgiveness was still impossible, at least
to keep up the semblance of respect I
proposed to join him in London immedi
ately, or to remain where I was, on con"
dition of his returning home` a)4_.-sonn as
parliament was prorogued.
I waited with unspeakable impatience
for a reply to this letter, and the next
post brought it. How I blessed my hus
band's clemency for this relief! My trem
bling hands could scarcely break the seal ;
the consideration of the sad difference be
tween,the, past and the present seemed to
overwhelm me—it was not thus I had been
accustomed to open my husband's letters,
feeling like a criminal condemned to read
his own warrant of condemnation.
The letter was brief. and ran thus :
" As the late events between us have
bend the subject of my inten . se and inces
sant deliberation since we parted, I am
able lillinor, to reply to your letter at
once. I consent to return and attempt.the
life of hollow deception you demand, un
der the expectation that you will soon be
come convinced of ifs impracticability,
and will then, I conclude, be. willing to
consent' to the forinal separation which it
is still my wish and purpose, to elect.
Never !" I said, crushing the hold let
ter between my hands, and then my pas
sion, long- suppressed,_ - burst--forth, And
throwing myself upon my 'threes by my
bedside, I wept and groaned in agony of
soul. Oh ! I bad hoped till then—hoped
that time might have softened him, that
tho.past might have pleaded with him for
the - absolution' of that one - transgressiOn.

how he lightened his embrace of the end
-he left the room.
I 'did not sit, down and weep, although
was sick at heart. I had intag,ined it
would be something like this, and had for
tified myself to endure it. I sat there
thinking, till I heard him come down
stairs, and then I went into the drawing
room. Immediately on my entrance, din
ner was announced, and ho offered his arm
to lead no to the room, just as he had al
ways been accustomed to do when we were
alone. There was no hesitation, no per
ceptible difference in his manner; I saw
he had made up his mind to do it. Dar
int,' dinner, we talked but little, but even
in days of old ho had been wont to be ab
sent and taciturn. Flurry came in with
the dessert, and her sweet prattle was felt
to be a gracious relief by both.— I soon
rose and took her away with me, keeping
her with me, and amusing her with talk
and music until bedtime. My husband
joined me at the usual time, and though,
he. did not voluntarily converse, he re
plied to anything I said without apparent
constraint. Before the servants, his man
ner was scrupulously as of Old; indeed,
so undemonstrative was, his natural char

no change in our relarions ; we went the

Occasionally, seine outsida comments

pressive of the belief that Mr. Anstruth

than ever; and of pity for the poor wife
who was allied.to it. lie certainly did be
co ne more irritable and exacting. I. could
see daily the bitter effects that his disap
pointment in my sincerity produced, how
his fine nature was growing wraped and
soured. It was not so much towards my
self that these effects were manifested—
he kept too rigid a control over our rela
tions; but it grieved me to notice it in
his impatience With his inferiors, and even
with our little tender Flurry, and in his
cynical and cruel judgement of the world
at large. 4le had always been very much
absorbed in political affairs, and ambitious
for distinction, hut now he seemed to
throw:heart and soul without reserve into
the arena, and to struggle for the stakes
with an eagerness of a gambler. There
had ceased to be any communion between
us In past days, hopds and schemes

proud to believe my influence had often .

One evening during the session, I was
sitting up awaiting his return from the
House. I was not . accustomed to . do so,
but on this occasion, I was deeply inter
ested in the result of the night's debate,
and added to that, I was uneasy about
Florry, who had been slightly ailing all
day, and seemed increasingly restless as
the evening advanced. When he came
in he looked surprised to see me up, for
it was already nearly three o'clock in the
morning, and I could see that he seemed
wearied and annoyed.
" You are anxious,,, I suppose," he
said. "for the news I bring? Well, the
ministers are thrown out."
1 knew he, and. indeed, the country in
general, had been quite unprepared for
such a result, and that personally it was a
severe mortification to him As I invol
untarily looked at him with an expression
of earnest concern I hardly ventured to
express, I saw his face soften. Perhaps
in that moment of vexation, he yearned
for the sympathy of old. Should I dare
to risk another appeal ?
" Malcolm," I said • but at the now
unfamiliar name, his brow clouded again,
and I finished my speech with some
measured expression of regret. I knew
I should damage my cause if I were to
attempt to press 4) into my service a mo
mentary weakness he was ashamed to
feel. I could not. however, command
my feelings suffhiently to speak of Florry,
and after leavin r him, I flew up stairs to
my child's room, and putting down my

Oh, how my heart ached ! I felt this life
was killing me, and that, one of my mo
ments of abandonment, was come. 13Jore,
however, I gave full vent to my tears, I
paused midway, as it
.were, to look at
Florry; and that look dried them up. I
felt my cheek blanch, my eyes start ; I
felt—who has not, felt, it ?—a premonitory
horror chill my blood I had left, her

face was tinged with a crimson heat, her

changed my evening dress for a morning
gown, doing all mechanically, as if under
a spell I could not resist. Then I sat
down by the bedside to watch my child
and await the doctor. I seemed ,to hold
all toy faculties in suspense: no tear must
blind try eye, no tremor unnerve my
hand, until this agony had reached its
crisis : then let life and hope go out to
,i/Iy husband and the doctor came in
after what seemed to be an intolerable
interval, but at first I only saw but one.
Who knows not such cases how the very
soul scorns hanging on the physician's
first glance, drinking life and death from
it ? I drank death. The steady profes
sional gaze did not deceive me, but the
stroke was beyond my taxed•endurance,
and I fell senseless on the floor.
Thank God, it was but a brief weak
ness. For the few days that that sweet
life was left to me, I held my post un
conscious of fatigue, enabled to comfort
and.sustain, and even sMile upon my dar
ling through her brief struggle with
death. God bowed my stubborn heart,
end strengthened me with the might of
submission I seemed, in the strong
light of this fiery trial, to see the past
more clearly, to acknowledge that I had
not humbled myself sufficiently under the
chastisement or my own sin.
It was midnight when she died. I
was holding her in my arms, hushed and
grierstricke, when I saw that unspeaka
ble change pass over the sweet face which
tells the sinking heart the awful hour is
come. Her laborifig breath fluttered on
toy cheek, the look of love that still lin-
gered in the glazing eyes fixed upon my
face died out, and I was childless.
My husband was standing at, the foot
of the bed, watching the scene with an
agony all the keener that ho suffered no
expr;ssiiin\of it to escape, but as the fast
faint struggle eased, and the baby-head
fell prone upo6 my breast, I saw the
strong frame quiver, and drops of perspi
ration start upon his forehead.

whisper, "•for ,every harsh word spoken

A Stirring Proclamation
The proclamation of Governor Yates,
of Illinois, issued on receiving the recent
order of the Secretary of War, contains
these stirring passages :

" Within a few months past, an unusual
