This good-natured paragraph, cvl
dently liom tho pen of a Bulky sub
editor, smnitlug under a lashing for
his blunder of tho preceding day, did
not come to my knowledge till somo
time nftcrwaul, .so that tho waiter's re
ply lo my uucsUon concerning Count
J 'stiavellng companion perplexed
mo cicatly nnd plunged mo Into an
ocean of conjcctuics.
In fact, my curiosity was so strongly
loused, that'lnstcad of availing myself
of tho absence of tho Dutchman lo es
cape fiom tho hotel, I sat down to din
ner, lcsolvcd not to depart till I heard
tho mystery explained. I had not
long to wait. Dinner was just over
when I received a message from Van
llnubit., who earnestly dcsiied to sec
I found him alone, seated at a tabic,
his chin lestiug on his hand, anger,
Minmo and mortification stamped upon
his inflamed countenance, A tumbler
half full of water stood upon tho table
beside a bottle of smelling salts; and,
upon entering, I was pretty suio I
hcaid a sound of sobbing fiom an inner
loom, which rcased, however, when I
spolto. Ulicio had evidently been a
violent scene. Its cause was explained
to mo by Van llnublfz, at first la rather
n, confused manner, for at each attempt
ho Interrupted himself by bursts of
l'uiy. Owing to this, it was somo time
bcioio I could anivo at a clear under
Htnnding of tho facts of tho case. When
1 did, I could scarcely help feeling
FOiryfor tho unfortunate schemer, al
though in truth ho richly deserved the
disappointment he had met.
Kcvcr was there a moro glaring In
stance of excess of cunning overreach
ing itself for no deception had been
piactlceil by Sladamo Sendcl nnd her
daughter. They doubtless gave them
selves cicdit for somo cleverness and
moio good foituno in enticing a rich
bntikcr, with moro ducats than brains,
into their matiimonial nets; and doubt
less Fiaulcin EmlHo put on her best
looks and gowns, her sweetest smiles
and most becoming bonnets, to lure the
Hon into the toils. Hut neither mother
nor daughter had fjr a moment im
agined that Van Ilaubiu took the lat
ter for tho celebrated and successful
actress whoso namo was known
thioughout Clcimany, whilo that of
poor Kmilic, whoso tnlcnts were of tho
most humble older, had scarcely ever
penetrated beyond tho wings and gicen
loom of tho theatre, where sho enacted
unimpoitant characters for tho modest
lennincration of a hundred lloiius a
By no means proud of her position
as nn actrcs, which appeared the moio
lowly when contrasted with her sister's
biilliant success, Lmllic had seldom ic-

compliments, which passed cm rent i
without being closely scanned. If ho I
had never hcaid either his wifo or I

line, it was becnuso they weie on the
woist possible teimswith that young
lady, who had lived, nearly from tho

When sho founcd this connection,
Madame Seudel who, in spite of her I
paint and nitiflclnl floriculture, had
ciysliict notions of propriety wrote
her n letter of fuiious reproach, re
nounced her as her daughter and nro- I
hibltcd Eniilio fiom holding any com
munication with her. Eniilio, against
whose viituo none had ever found
might to say, soirowfully obeyed; and,
alter two or Unco Ineffectual attempts
onthopnit of Amellno to soften her
mothci's wintli, all communication be
tween them ceased.
Their next meeting was that at which
Van Dnubiix nnd myself were present.
Its siugulailty, Madame Sendcl's faint
ing lit nnd the resemblance between the
sisters, biought on Inquiries and nn ev
plamuion; and tho Dutchman found, to
his inrxpicssiblo disgust and consterna
tion, that he had encumbered himself
with a wifo ho cared nothing for, and a
mother-in-law ho detested, whoso joint
income was hugely stated at 150 pounds
steillng per nuhuiii.
In his flist paioxyistn of rago ho
tnunted them with tho mistake thov
hud made when they had thought to ,
feccurc the love sick millionaire, pro
claimed himself in debt, disinherited '
nnd n lieggni ; and, finally, by tho vio
lence of his rcpioaches, drovo thorn
ticmbling and wenplng from the loom.
Van llnubit. had sent for mo to im- '
ploio my advice in his present dlfllcult
position; but was so bewildered by
passion and ovcnvhclined by this sud
den awakening fiom his dream of suc
cess and prospeiity, that ho was hardly
in a condition to listen to reason, ills
icgicts wcio so sclllsh ns to destroy tho
possibility of sympathy, and I should
have left him to his futo nnd his own
' devices, hnd I not thought that my
to doing would mnko matters woro for
the poor gill who liad thus heedlessly
linked herself to a fortune-hunter. So
1 lemaincd; after nwliilo ho became
calmer, and wo talked over plans for
lly my suggestion Mndamo Setulcl
and" her daughter weiu invited to tho
confcicneo The old lady was sulky
and filghtcncd mid would hardly open
her lips; Emilio, on tho other hand,
mado n moio fnvoiablo linpiession on
mu than sho had ever piovlously done
1 now saw, what I had not bcfoie sus
pected, that sho was ically attached to
vim llnubit; hilcito, I had taken her
fornmeio iidventuiess, speculating on
Ids supposed wealth.
Hhe spoko kindly ami affectionately
lo him, smiled thiouch tho tenia
tin tight tolicr eyes by his lccent vio
lence, and evidently tiembled oaeh
lime her mother spoko, lest sho should
ciit a icpioachoriofer to his duplicity.
Mo ti led to speak confidently nud
ihuifullv of tho fuluio. They must
j.o iiinrtdlali'lv to Vienna, bho said,
tlit ic -1 c wnild apply diligently to her
jirfuMui, Iho manngcr had hnlf
pitmift'd her nn incrctuo of salary
nftei another year sho was sure she
would descrvo It, nnd monnwlillo Vail
llnubit., with his abilities, could not
fall to find soma lucrntlvo employment,
lie must got rid of his accent, sho
added with n smllo (ho spoke n voluble
but most excel ablo jargon of mingled
Dulrh and German), and then ho
might go upon tho stngc, whero sho
was certain ho would succeed.
This last suggestion was mado tim
idly, ns if sho feared to hurt tho prldo
of the senpegraco by proposing such a
plnn. Thcro was not n word or an ac
cent of lcpionch In all sho said, and I
heartily forgavo tho llttlo coquetry,
affectation nnd vulgarity I hadformcily
rcmnikcd in her, In consideration of
Iho intuitive dclicncy and good feeling
shu now displayed. Truly, thought 1,
it Is humbling to us, tho bcnulcd and
baser moiety of humankind, to con
tiast our vile egotism with tho beauti
ful self devotion of women, ns exhibited
even in this poor actress.
Mndamo Sendel by no means ac
quiesced in her daughter's protect.
The lleshpots of Amsterdam had at
tiactions for her far supeiior to thoao
of a snuggling nnd unccitaiu existence
ntVlennn. Sho cvid en tly leaned upon
the hopo of a reconciliation between
Van Ilaubil. and his father, nnd hinted
pielty plainly nt Iho effect that might
bo produced by a personal interview
with the obdurate banker.
I could see sho was auanging matters
in her queer old noddle upon tho np
piovcd theatrical principle; the peni
tent foii and fnscinatlng daughter-iu-law
tlnowing themselves at the feet of
tho melting father, who, with hand
kerchief to eyes, bestows on them a
blubbeiing benediction nnd nmplo
To my surpiise, Van Ilaubltz nlso
stciued disposed to place hope in an
appeal to his father, perhaps as n
uiowning man clutches nt a straw. He
may lmvo thought that his manlage,
imprudent ns it was, would bo taken as
somo guarantee of futuio steadiness, or
at least of abstinence from tho spend
thrift couises which hnd hlthcilo de
stroyed all confldenco in him.
Ilo could haidly expect his union
with u penniless acticss to lcinstatchlin
In his father's good graces; but ho
piobnbly imagined ho might extract a
small annuity, as a condition of living
ni a instance trom uio iricnds uc nail
disgraced. lie- asked me what I
thought of tho plan.
I of com so did not dissuade him from
its adoption, and, upon tho whole,
thought it his best chance, fori ically
saw no other. After some delibciation
and discussion, ho seemed neatly to
have mado up his mind, when I was
called awny to my fiicnds, who had re
turned from their excursion.
I was getting into bed that night
when Van Ilaubltz knocked at my
door and entcied tho ruoin with a
downcast and dejected air, very differ
ent from his usual bolsteious, head
"1 am oft' lo Holland, ho said; "'tis
my only chance, bad though it be."
"I sincciciy wish you success," re
plied I. "In any case, do not despair;
something will turn up. You havo
fiicnds iu your own country, I havo
heard you say. They will help you to
Ho shook his head.
"Good fiicnds over a bottle ami a
dice-box," said ho, "but useless at a
pinch like this. Pleasant fellows
enough, but scamps like" myself, he
was going to add, but did not. "lam
come to say faiewell," ho continued.
"I must bo off before daybreak. I havo
debts in Finnkfoit, nud if my dcpaitmo
gels wind, I shall have n doen duns on
my back. Misfoi tunes never coino
alone. As for paying, it is out of tho
question. Among us wo havo only
nbout enough money to leach Amster
dam. Once theic a la race tie Dieu!
but I confess my hopes arc small.
Thanks for your advice and for your
sympathy, too, for I saw this morning
you weicsony for me, though you did
not think 1 desei veil pity. Well, per
haps not. God bless youl"
1 Ho was leaving tho loom, but ic-
"1 think you said you should stay
at Cohlcnt. before letuining lo Eng
I "I shrill piobably bo Ihcio a few days
I townid tho end of tho month.''
I "Good! If I succeed vou shall hear
I fiom me. What is your address there?"
"Pontc restante will find me," Ire
' plied, not veiy covetous of the cone
, spoudenee, and unwilling to give a moio
Van llnubilz nodded and left me. At
' bieakfast tho next inoiningl learned
that the Dutch baion, as tho waiter
I styled him, had taken his departure at
. peeii of day.
Tho Hist days of October found nic
I still at Coblent, lingciiug among the .
vnlleyhund vineynuls, nud loth to cx-
. change them for the tiutumnal fogs nud
' emptiness of London. Thither, how-
i evci, 1 was compelled to lctuin; nnd I
tndenoicd to eonsolo myself for tho
necessity by discovcilng that the gicon
Hhino grew blown, tho ticcs scant of
leaves, tho evenings long and chilly.
1 hnd hcaid nothing of Van llnubit,
, mid had ceased to think of him, when,
walking out at dusk on tho cvo of the
day fixed for my dcpiutuic, I suddenly
Uc had just nnivedbya steamboat
coming up stieam; his wifo ami
I mother-in-law wcic with him, and thoy
I weio about to enter a llfth-rato inn,
which, two months piovlously, ho
would hno felt Insulted If solicited to
pntronic. 1 was shocked by the
change that had taken place In all
tinee ot tnt'iii.
In live weeks they had giowu flvo
yenis older. Eniilio had lost her fresh
ness, her eje its spuiklc, and the meU
nncholy smllo with which she welcomed
mo made my hcnit aeho. Mndamo
Scuilel's lotund cheeks had collapsed;
sho looked cios and jaundiced and
moio snuffy than ever. Van IlaubiU
was thin and hnggaid; his hair nud
mustaches, found ly glossy and well
tiimmcd, wcio tagged nnd neglected;
his diess, once so smalt nnd cniefully
nrimigcd, was soiled and slovenly. My
iimisiuntion supplied n rapid and vivid
sketch of Hie anxieties rind disappoint
ments and hem t burnings which, moro
than any actual bodily privations, had
woiked so gieat n change- in so short a
limo. Van llnubit. stalled on seeing
me, and falleii.il in ids pace, as if un
willing lo cnler iho shabby hotel In my
picscnco. 'llio hesltntion was nioincn-
inilly. "WoiM! iiiuitcis than wo used
loiuctt In," tnlil lie, with n hitter smllo. !
"1 will not nsk you into this dog-hole. ,

ids wife and mother In law out of ear
shot, ubiuptl) bee 1111 the tnio of Ills
mlMinps. As I conjectured, ho had
tntiilh lulled in his attempt to mollify
his lidlicr, who wns furious at his
temerity in appealing before lilm, and
whoso rago redoubled when he heard
of his Ill-omened marriage. Unfortu
nately, for Van llnubit, tho Jowelor
and somo other tradesmen at Frankfort,
so soon as they learned his departure,
had forwarded their accounts to tho
caro of tho Amsterdam firm; and, al
though his father hail not the lcmotcst
Intention of paying them, ho was In
censed in tho cxtrcmo nt tho slur thus
cast upon his houso and nnmc. In
Bhoit, tho unlucky nrlllloryman nt onco
saw ho had no chnnco of a single
kreucr or of tho slightest countcnauco
from his father. Ills applications lo
ins urotners nnu lo ono or lo moio ills
taut lelnllves wcio equally unsuccessful.
All wcio disgusted nt his Irregularities,
nngry nt his inniiiago, incredulous of
his promises of reform; and, nfter pass
ing a miserable month in Amstcidatn,
ho set out to accompany his wifo to
Vienna, whither sho was compelled lo
lcpalr under pain of line nnd forfeiture
of her engagement. Although living
with ligld economy on bieftd anil
water, ns Van llnubit expressed it
their finances had been uttorly con
sumed by their slay in tho Dutch capi
tal, and it was only by disposing of
ovcry tilnkct nnd superfluity (nnd of
necessaries, too, I femed, when I re
membcrtd tho slender baggage that
came up with them from tho boat) that
Ihoy had procuicd tho means of ti aval
tag, in the cheapest and most humble
manner, nnd with Iho dishenrtening
ceitninty of nrrlving penniless at Vi
enna. Van Ilnubltz told mo all this
nnd many other details with an air of
gloomy despondency. Ho wns hope
less, hcait-btokcn, desperate; and cer
tain clicumstnnccs of his position,
which by some would havo been held
an alleviation, ngginvated it In his oyes.
Ho said llttlo of his wife. but. from
what escaped him, I easily gathcicd
that sho had shown strength of mind,
good feeling and nffection for him, and
was" willing tosliugglc by his sido for
n scanty and haul-earned subsistence.
Ills cares and initablo mood picvented
his oppicclating her attaohuicnt, and
ho looked upon her as nn encumbrance,
without which he might ngain rise In
the woild. Ho had always entertained
a conlidcnt expectation of enriching
himself by mairiage, nnd this hopo,
which had buoyed him up under many
difficulties, was gone now.
"I havo ono resource left," said Van
llnubilz. "I have pondered over it for
tho last two days, and hnvo almost de
termined on its adoption."
"What is It?" I asked.
"If I decido upon It," ho replied,
"you shall shortly know. 'Tis a des
perate one enough. "
Wo had insensibly slackened out
pace, and at this moment tho ladles
came up. Van Ilaubltz mado a gesturo
as of impalienco at tho iutciiuptlon.
"Wait for mo heic," ho said, and
walked awny. Without speculation
upon tho motive of his absence. I stood
still, nnd entered into conversation with
tho ladies. Wo were on the quay. The
night was mild and calm, but overcast
anil exceedingly dark. A few feet bo
low us lolled tho dark mass of tho
Ilhinc, slightly swollen by recent l.iius.
A light from an adjacent window illum
inated the spot, nnd cast a flickering
gleam ncross the water. Unwilling to
lefer to their misfortunes, I spoko to
Eniilio on somo general topic. But
Madamo Scndelwns too full of her
tioublcs to tolcralo any conversation
Hint did not immediately lclnto to them,
and she biokc in with a long history of
grievances, of the hnid-hearlcdncss of
tho Amslcidnm ldations, Hie cruelty of
Emilio's position, her son-in-law's help
lessness, nnd vniious other inatlcis in a
quciulous tone, nnd with fiightful vol
ubility. The poor daughter, I plainly
saw, winced under this infliction. T
was waiting the smallest opening to in
tenupttho indiscreet old lady and re
vert to commonplace, when n distant
splash in the water icached my enis.
The women nlso hcaid it, and at tho
saino instant a piesentimcnt of evil
cnnie over us nil. Madame Sendel sud
denly held her tongue nnd her breath;
Emilic turned deadly pale, and without
saying a woul, Hew along tho quay in
(hedlicction of the Eonnd. Sho had
gone but a few yards when her strength
Jailed her, and she would have fallen
but for my support. Theic was a shout
and a noise ot men iiinning. heaving
Madamo Van Ilaubltz to thccaic of her
mother, I lan swiftly alon" the liver
side, and soon icached a place whcie
tho deep water moaned niut surged
against tho pcipcndicular quay. Heie
f-cveial men wcio assembled, talking
hunicdly and pointing to tho liver.
Otheis each moment nriivcdniid two
uontsweio nastily suovca on liom nn
ndjnccnt landing place.
"A man In tho liver," was the lepiy
to my hnsly inquiry.
It was so dnrk that I could not dis
tinguish countenances close lo mo, and
at a very fowtynids even the outline of
oujccis was scarcely to uo discerned.
There wcro no houses close at hand,
and some minutes elapsed boforo l'ghts
were piocurcd. At last several boats
put olT, with men standing in the bows,
holding torches and lanterns high in
tho nir. Meanwhile I had questioned
tho bystanders, but could get llttlo In
formation; none ns to tho person to
whom the accident had happened. The
man who had given tho alarm wns je
turning from mooring his boat to n
iieighboiing jetty, when ho perceived
n figure moving along tho quay a shoit
distance in his front. Tho llginc ills
nppeaicd, u heavy splash followed, and
tho boatman ran forward. Ilo could see
no ono either on shore or in tho stieam,
but heard a sound as of ouc sulking out
ami snuggling in iho water. Having
learned this much, I jumped Into a boat
just then putting off, and bid the
rowers pull down stream, keeping a
shoit distance from the quay. The cur
lent ran stiong, nnd I doubted not Hint
Uio drowning man had been can led
along by it. Two vigorous oaismcn
pulled till Iho blades bent, nnd tho boat,
aided by Iho stieam, flew thiough the
water. A llilid man held n toich. I
stiaincd my eyes through tho dnrkness.
Piesently a small object floated within
n few feet of tho boat, whicli was rap
Idly passing It. Itshono in tho torch
light. I shuck nt it with a boat-hook,
and biought it on bonid. It was n
man's cap, coveicd with oilskin, and I
remembered that Van llnubit woio
such n one. Shipping off tho cover, I
beheld an officer's foraging cap, with a
grenade cmhioidcieil on us trout. -My

"When Uio scnich, icndeicd nlmost
hopeless by Uio e.ticnio duikncss nnd
power of Iho curient, wns at Inst aban
doned, 1 hastened to Iho hotel and in
ipiiied for Jtndaino Sendel. Sho camu
in mu in n slnto of gieat agitation. Vim
llnubit. hnd not letuiucd, but sho
thought less of that than of tho state -of
her daughter, who, sinco iccoveiing
fiom 11 long swoon, hnd been nlmost
cined wllli anxiety, Sho kuow somo
0110 had been diowned, and liei- mind
mifgnvo her it was her husband. Tho
toinglng cap, wiiicii .Madamo bcudei
immediately leeognied, leinoved nil
uuccitnlnty. Tho only hope icmalnim;
was Hint Van linuhit, although ear
lied liipldly nwny by"tlio power of tho
( uncut, had been nblu lo maintain him
self on tho suifnco, and hnd got ushoio
at some considerable distance down tho
liver, or had been picked up by n pass
ing bont. Hut this wns a very feeble
hope, and for my own pait, and for
11101 0 titan ono reason. I placed no 10
lianco on it I left Madamo Mendel to
break tho painful intelligence to her
daughter, nnd went home, promising to
cnll again In Iho morning.
As I hnd oxpectcd, nothing was
henrd of Van Ilaubltz, nor any vestige
of him found, savo tho foraging cap I
had picked up. Doubtless tho Hhino
hnd boino down his lifeless corpso to
tho country of his birth, Tho next day
Coblcn. rang with tho death of tho un
fortunate Dutchman. A stranger, and
unacquainted with tho localities, ho
wns supposed to hnvo walked over tho

nnd sol know did Madamo Sendel and
EmlHo. I saw tho former caily tho
next day. Bho was greatly cast down
about her daughter, who hnd passed n
sleepless night, and wns weak and
suffering, but who nevertheless Insisted
on continuing her journey tho follow
"Wo must go," said her mother; "If

A CUIUOUS AMMIAIIHT.
How rnctn mill ltlcnn Hum, llccn I'.o
coidtil on Tnlno.
Tho formation of n species of record
of facts and ideas, by means of knots
lied upon cords, says tho New York
Ledger, was common among tho inhabi
tants of I'eru on tho discovery of that
counliy by thoSpaniaids. Thcso knotted
cords, or iuipos, ns thoy were called,
seemed to havo served Instead of will
ten lccords, and to havo been picscrvcd
in bundles, like tho archives of moio
civilized nations. A knowledge of tills
cxtinordinniy kind of tnctilo lltctnluro
was early biought to Europe and dis
seminated among the learned; yet it is
somewhat remarkable that up to tho
piesent tiino no notice has ever been
taken of tho 51ijwa with 11 view of
diawing an annlogy betwixt them and
tho knotted symbolic colds of tho Jews,
which nro of vnst antiquity,
Mnnyycnrs ago, two men InEiliip
burgd, Itobeit Milne nnd David Mac
bcath, who weio both blind, Invented
an alphabet of knots tied upon a stilnir,
which was not only of a simple uatuie,
but capable of expressing ideas of tho
mostabtruso kind, nnd of lccording
facts of any description. This inven
tion was quite oiiginnl; neither of tho
inventors hnd over heard cither of the
Fciuvian rjutpos, or the Jewish cords.
In their elloits thoy wcic only guided
by a desiro of producing something
which might bo useful to their bictliren
in tho same uufoitunato condition, and
of communicating, at a distance, with
This string alphabet was a gieat deal
moro simplo than those of the Peru
vians. The twenty-six letters of tho
alphabet aic divided into seven classes,
piocceding strnlghtfoiward from A to
A. Each class consists of four letters,
with tho exception of tho flist class,
which comprehends but two. Tho first
lour lettcis, or A li U 1), mo cacu
formed by n largo round knot; the
second four, or E F G II, by a knot
piojecling fiom tho suing; the third
four, or 1 J K L, by a knot vul gaily
called a drummer's plait; the
fourth four, or M N O P, by a sim
ple noose; the fifth four, or Q It S T,
by a nooso with a stiiug drawn
thiough it; tho sixth four, or UV W
Y, by a nooso, with a net-knot formed
upon It; nnd tho seventh class, or Y
nud , by a twisted noose. Thus, theic
nio just seven diffoient kinds of knots
to Indicate the whole lettcis of the
alphabet. But lo distinguish caoh of
tho four letters in a class from the
olheis, tho expedient was adopted of
adding a common smail knot nt n lesser
or greater distauco fiom the letter to
which it belongs, lly this the letter A
is indicated only by tho knot of the
class to which it belongs; ij is uio 1
same knot lepeatcd, but close to it is a
smnll common knot; 0 is the same
knot repeated, with tho small knot half ,
an inch distant; nnd 1) is tho same
knot repented, with the small knot an
The same plan goes on throughout;
so that, by flrst feeling tho kind of knot,
nnd then feeling whether it has a small
knot attacked, and nt what distance,
any letter can be instantly told. The
length of this stiiug alphabet is little
111010 than tluee feet, and any blind in
