On the morning of August the first, sixteen
hundred and fourteen, the village of Ilatsbledon
was the score of muoh lively bustle which rallied
chiefly round the dwelling of Muter Simon, far•
tier, blacksmith, and wheel.right for the town
ship. Muter Simon's only daughter Bore—the
White Rose of Hambledon; the folks called her
—was going to be married that day to her cousin
Richard Nieholl,'who had come to Hambiedon
about a year before to work at the forge for his
kinsman, whose strength was declining, and bad
fallen in love at once with the pretty and warms
hearted Rose. They were a very well matched
couple of young people, for if she was as bloom'
iog and sweet as her name, Richard was the
goodliest man in that parish, and many another.
She was nineteen, and he was twenty lsix— both
of them in the full glottand excellence of youth.
The - forge fire was out that morning, and if
any traveler's horse had chose% to out a shoe
near the village, he must have gone $ couple of
miles further , to Wistlebaok, before the dunce
could have een repaired. In Muter Simon 's
cottage were collected half the women of the
place, but Rose's chamber was the favorite point,
for there the young maiden's toilet was being
accomplished by half a-dosen of .her particular
friends. We ought not to go into that Writer
rious sanctum, I know ; but for the telling at

coarkabh either for its picturesqueness or its
grace ; but Rose's pretty shape and sweet face
were proof against its disfigurements. She atood
in the venire of the room, fair and blushing, in
a petticoat of remarkable stiffness and a bodree
of preternatural length, her gold °elated hair
rolled up elaborately, and a highly-starched ruff
lying close at band to imprison bet nand white
There was not one of the balf-down friends
Po beautiful as Rose ; but one of them—the
chief it seemed--from her being the putter on
of the bows and decorative' paraphernalia of the
dress, had a singular counteuence---cold, repel
lant, and stone-grey. The blackness of her eye
brows, which met and were depressed over her
eyes. - gave her a furtive, stealthy expression, and
her narrow scarlet lip', while they indicated a
sensual disposition, showed also one of cruelty
and vindictiveness. She was older than most of
the girls, but still quite young, and bad preten
moos to beauty which she was more ready to as
sert than others were to allow. Everybody,
however, Rose included, treated her with a cal
tai* respect, for she was waiting-woman to my
lady the wife of Sir Roger Bedintleld, at Haat.
bledon Hall Her name wu Mistress Gilbert,
and she was reputed to possess philters mod love
charms, which in those good old times were held
in high repute, not only amongst silly maidens
but even amongst wise and discreet matrons.
One *harm, however, Mistress Gilbert did not
possesi—tbat charm which would have charmed
Richud Nieholl's heart out of his bosom. Her
disappointed hopes bad been a sly-theme of talk
many a time in the village, and even Ross her'
self had shared is it. Possibly that wss the
reason why, when Mistress Gilbert's chilly
hands glided so stealthily about her person,
slight shiver kept running over her flesh.
"You are told, Rose," said the waiting. woman;
"shut the window, some of you. Yoe shudder
all over when you are touched."
"It can't be that her enemy is walking over
the plait* where her grave is to be," remarked al
carelessyoung body who looked straight at Mis
tress Gilbert, mid then turned red under the
cold scrutiny that she received from her cruel
"Rose is too good to have an enemy. Every
one loves her," said the waiting-women slowly.
Directly after she had spoken she ipprosehed her
lip to the white polished shoulder, and blew soh
ly at a tiny brown mark, sad then brushed it
with her hand carelessly.
"You will have to blow a long time before
you blow away that little mole ,
Mietress G i l.
bert," laughed Rose; "I was born with it"
"I am short sighted this morning—l mistook
it for a fly :" sad the waiting-woman began to ar •
range the starched rut.
Rose would have been glad to dispense with
the honor of Mistress Gilbert's company at her
marriage; because 'Richard Nieholt did not like
her, and also because the waiting woman',
aspiration after the handsome young smith, of•
fended her feminine prejudices; bet Mistress

Richard received her with a Ise helmet blush,
which was more softly reflected on her own titer,
and, after a abort interval, the whole sampan;
fell into order, two and two, to walk 1101081 the

gossip )is much as if she were a mere common

the pe*n to gratify her, not being in the least
scropukus that her intelligence should be fact
rather than fiction.
"Thily are a pretty pair of lovers, I'm sure,
and Ri;the's dress was uncommon gay ;" said Lady
Bedinield, who bad a mother's heart.
"Bo cheek could not have looked fresher if
it had i been painted. Gilbert, your new wash

"Natural roses have the finest bloom," replied
Lady /Winfield, who had been a beauty herself,
and w4s still a ham/some woman. She some
times had a little spite against her daughters for
being 4o unmanageably plain.
"Role Nieboll's bloom looks natural," said
kfistreis Gilbert with an air of sarcastic respect;
"it looks even brighter than nature "
"Yob are jealous, Gilbert ; we know 111 about
the yodng suitor's indifference to black eyes when
blue odes are willing to shine on him," returned
Lady Redingeld, with a jolly laugh—she was
above caring for her waiting womans fellings,
and, besides, she had just been touched and
pleased; by the pretty same in the church A

Mistress Gilbert face blushed lividly. That

to her just as they were entering the house, and

"Ab, good 411bert, I will not tell bet; speak

"It preserves youth, makes the skin smooth,
and gives it I' bloom like a little child's; but it
is highly dangelrous."
"How dameMosa ? Lit poison 7"
Mistress Rillitabetli, overhearing the naysteri.

civil of Sir 1344 Cavendish bad sown jealously
bourses the niters.
"It is a Mineral poison; bet with care and in

would be as fair as Bose NicEoll. Will you try
it ? or do you fear the risk r'
~o ! I will cry it. I would try anything to
have a face like the young smith's wife; bus
promise me not to let Elisabeth have any."
Mistress Gilbert gave the required pledge,
and then stole moray to her own chamber to fetch
the powder. The watcher looked for he! return
impatieitly. When Mistress Gilbertrelered,
she brought l in bet hand a small boa ebony,
which she opened with a key attached to a chain
hidden under her ruff. Etlisaboth listened' breath
lessly ; but she could not catch all that was
said. But she saw a mall past given to her
sister, and by her, after &portion of its matelots
had been eittaeted for immediate use, deposited
in her jewel box. Hoe that taken out was used,
she could not see; for Mistress Gilbert ouried
it to where stood the ewer, and basin, and thither
Mistress bkey went to awl, it; betake heard
the waiting woman say, " will sink—mingle it

something to be swallowed, and determined that,

one morning with her month drawn on one vide, ,
and frightfully disfigured Mistress Gilbert,
terrified at her appearance, and rightly attribto

suspicion, immediately exclaimed that her young
lady was bewitched—and, as all new or ill'
understood disease was, in these good old times,
laid to supernatural ipfluonces, this was readily
believed. But, bewitched or poisoned,, poor
young Mistress Lucy', days of vanity were past,
and she would nevet,oharnt Sir Henry Caven•

Mistress Elisabeth was so sancta Awaked and,
grieved for some days that she forgot to profit by

An Exciting Scene
From the Thiladelphia Prtvu.
We leant, from a correspondent, that the fash
ionable notion of suicide has found its way into
the fashionable circles of at hest one summer
resort. 4 ia one of these, known to the ;demure.
seeking world as "Deal," quite an ezeitutg scene
occurred, a few days since, tinging with some,
thing more than wonted life those who bask in
the happy, genial pleasures of this famous, but
quiet retreat. The house at Deal stands some
tour hundred and fifty yards from the sea, be.
beach, to prevent the walk from being filled With
sand by passing wagons, two uprigut pieces of
timber are created, about eight feet in height,
with a eross-piece near the top. An interesting
young Philadelphia lady, having fallen despe
rately in love with a gentleman, whose attentions
were monopolized by a couple of a New York
ladies—albeit he was a faithful and devoted at.
teadent until their arrival—resolved to make it
the last time that he should beso gaily deeeiv.
At the hour for bathing two ladies and gents
were on the way to the beach, when horror-stria.
en, they beheld dangling from the crossbeam
(which, since the occurrence, has been named
the "Lovers Swiug,"). the form of a lady in her
bathing dress She was at once recognised by
the party as "the lady in love "—The gentlemen
quickly lowered the lady by the rope bywhich
she was suspended, wbcu it was discovered that
her pulse was actively beating. By the appli•
cation of some water to her face, and rubbing
her wrists, she speedily revived; and In less
than half an hour she was seen dashing about in
the surf—none more full of life and spirits than
she. Since the above occurrence, which has
been the current topic of conversation among the -,
guests at Deal, it has been rumored that a gen•
aeons from a neighboring city, attempted to
"shale off this mortal coil, ' at the same place :
but the facts being in the possesSion of his im•
mediate friends, it has been impossible to learn
the cause which impelled him to .ha rash act.
