TUE TWO ROSEBUDS,
BY L'INCONNUE
-:o:
We were seated, Gerald and I, in the
moon Iii pia"* of one of those fine me?
sions which adnrn the islands lying near
the "Queen City of the South." AUW
years have punned, yet that scene ie mill
ires li in my memory; but who cen paint
Thc long low pia na, with tte trailing |
tines, thc starry jessamine and ruby
tictcd indian creeper, playing, et hide?
and seek arouud the greet grey pillara,
and nuder the caves, end thea liftiog
their buds saucily to the brilliant moon?
light, as if wooiug the kisses ol the eeph
yrs which breathed upon them the j
balmy moisture of the blue Cooper.
And that moonlight I Who ever sew
such moonlight as that which shone on
Wave Hall, and was reflected in e thou?
sand sparkles from the weves which I
broke iu murmurs at tho foot of its|
grand old oaks? I have seen tho moon?
light lie upoo many a beeutifal scene
siucc, but its rays have never touched
my heart like those which fell upon the
dear old placo, where wero spent so
matty of thc bright, unclouded days ot'
my happy youug lifo Wo wero not
..wholly iu tho busy world, not quite be
youd it," for just beyond tho phosphor?
escent sparklo oi the waves, gleamed the
aiyriud lights of tho beloved city, end
re could hear
"Nows from the humming elly,
lu sound of funeral or of (naniago bolls,
And sitting muffed in dark leaves vou'd hear
The windy clanging of the minster clock."
Wave Hull was the residence of my
uncle, Hurlly llivterc, a perfect specif
men of a model olese of gentlemen-the
Southern ptauters. His geoial, yet
courtly manners, his unbounded hospi?
tality, and his ample fortune, rendered |
his beautiful home the centre of attrac?
tion (ur all within our circle of acquain?
tance. Iiis only daughter, Ethel-pat
romp and tease-aud ?, lovod each other,
more as sisters than cousins. There waa
. large p-irty gathered to celebrate the
birth-night of a nephew of my aunt's,
Gerald (Jrey, who having been left ia
orpliau at au early age, was a ward ot
my uncle, aud almost a brother to Ethel
and 1.
He cummanded a company which vol?
unteered for service iu Virginia, direct?
ly after the stars und stripes on FOTI
Sumter were lowered to our triumphant
Palmetto, aud had beeu on duty ever
I since, except wheo he paid short, yet
dearly prized visits home. During
those visits, short as they were, a deep
eraffection than that ol brother and sister
had stolen into our hearts, ead although
he had now been home but a few days,
already there was a tacit understanding]
Ictwceti us.
We had been spending e most
delightful time-Gerald, Ethel and 1
liding, fishing and taking long strolls
through thc dim woods, lounging for
hours under one of the lurgest oaks,
listening to thc breeze playing amid its j
tremulous leave?, and as wo listened,
almost imagining that, like Tennyson's
talking oak, it had found a voice. Or
wc would wander in the cool of thc
afternoon along tho beach, watching tho
tossing of thc waves, or looking afar out
to where thc white sails were catching)
the last level rays of the setting sun.
Oh ! what bright days those were! Each j
hosr seemed filled with tho life,
love ami rapturous enjoyment of a year
of ordinary existence. A lifotime of
happiness seemed to have been crowded
into those days, few io number yot fated
to exercise a powerful influence upon
our lives. For docs not a first lov?
lend a colouring to the wholo of our
short live? ? I ask not thoso whose
fancy is caught by a beautiful face, an
elegant person, or by rank, wealth or ac?
complishments ; who mistake tht
gleam of gold ortho sparkle of jewels,
fora spark of thc true fire. But I ask I
those who have really come within the
nagic cirolo drawn by tho wand of the
great enchanter, Love-who, like that
li'eaialchymist, the Sun, throws his rays
?found him, transmuting into gold ell
upon which they fall.
^"c day, on my uoole's return from
?nc of his frequent trips to.tho city, he
Md us he expected a friend from Vir*
K'nia, Col Haughton, to dina with him,
?nd after telling us laughingly to mak'd
delves as" "fascinating as possible,'1
c?ded by saying it would bo of no use,
however, f"r although tho Col. had
reached the ago of thirty-five, he bad
never felt tho power of the blind God,
aT believed himself invulnerable to his
Jj?fa' In an instant there fleahed
through my mind a resolve to find the
v?hicrablc spot in this inodoro Aohilles,
0n?l when, shortly after, I heard him ar
r,vci hurried to my room, and calling
Klsie, my moid, bade hor arrango my
lair io the most becoming manner
possible. Aa l surveyed myself in toe
mirror, just before descending to meet
our guest, I WM by no menai) displeased
with my appearaneo. Glossy bands of
golden hair, looped baok iron forehead,
whose ivor/ fairness wis heightened by
contrast with the pale blue muslin, and
eyes bright with the pleasnre of
anticip?tfed ?oDtjueit, wade np the pic?
ture.
.Bat, to malee the story shorty he "carno,
saw and was conquered/' Scarce a day
passed but brought the proud Colonel n
Willing eaptif* ti? W?e I?ill. We
walked, sung and rode together. Of the
latter I was particularly fond, as I knew
that I appeared, to advantage in my
black riding habit and velvet eap, with
white waving plume. Then, on our re?
turn from walking er riding, we would
linger in th? gathering shadows of the
piaer?, and I would sing to him, not the
simple yet touching, tender ballads I had
sung for Gerald, but songs through
whose sentimental words ran nc under?
current of deeper feelings. I was com?
pletely carried away by girlish vanity,
and resented all interference from Ger
alu, telling him I had "givenhim no right
to regulate my conduct." Ah, Gerald,
even now when I look baok at-' my total
disregard of your feelings, in those gay
yet miserable days, I can scarce forgive
myself. How often do we carelessly, ye.
deeply wound those whom, in our in?
most hearts, we love better than lifo it?
self.
B?t I was destined tobo arrested In my
giddy coarse by a west sudden and un?
expected shock. On the morning of
the party came the news that my father
had met with considerable loss of for?
tune, by becoming security ol a person
who had betrayed the trust reposed in
him. He had become liable for debts
amounting to* the greater half of his en?
tire fortune. The bearer of the news
brought a letter from my father, entreat?
ing me not to allow thc intelligence to
mar the pleasure of wy visit, nor curtail
its length, and not to "trouble my little
he?d" about it, f r he still had enough
for his '-darling Sybil." My first im?
pulse was to return home, but my uncle
and family so earnestly urged me to re*
main that I reluctantly consented to do
so. The news of the loss of so larg? a
portion of wy father's property, was a
severe blow to me, and although what
remained was sufficient for a comfortable
maintenance, yet to one who had been
accustomed to abundant wealth, simple
competence appeared like ?overty.
Thea came the great tempUma. I had
been pleased and flattered by Col.
Haughton'* admiration, but had never
onoe thought of a serious ending to
what I considered a "harmless flirtation/'
Now came tho thought, "why not give
up Gerald forever?" Col. Haughton, I
knew, was very wealthy. I liked, but did
not love him. Surely it would Be no
difficult matter to love one so noble
lookiug, distinguished and talented.
Thus I reasoned with myself, but in the
midst of suoh fallacious reasoning,
thoughts of Gerald, whom I did love,
would intrude upon me, and I could
scarce resolve to do that whioh would
separate us forever.
But it was the night of the
party, and this brings me to the begin?
ning of my story. In the interval be?
tween the dances, Gerald asked me to
como out into the plasia with him, and
although dreading a "tete a tete," I
consented. Gerald and I were seated
uudcr the vines, a little retired from tho
gay promenaders who filled the piazza.
I was sad, for I loved him and know
that ho loved mo, withja devotion worthy
a better return than I had made him;
but Obi. Haughton 'was very wealthy.
As his wife, I could gratify my luxurious
tastes. Could I give him up?
Eaoh seemed afraid to break the silence
At last Gerald spoke, "Sybil, I can stand
this no longer, to-night you must deeide
between Col. Haughton and myself. If
iu his favor-although my leave of ab?
sence has not expired-I return to my
command, there, amid tho hardships of
camp, and the smoko of battle, to forget
the blue eyes that loved me but to de?
ceive. I will seek you hereafter supper.
If you still loyo me, give me the whito
rosebud whioh you wear in your hair. If
your choice falls upon Col. Haughton,
give me the red, and without a word I
leave you for vcr." He arose, as ho fin?
ished speaking, and asked me to return
to the parlors, but' tolling him to leave
"mo, I sat there with my head renting
heavily against the vines; crushing out
tho life from tho sweet flowers, and try?
ing to crush out the lifo and lovo from
my own henri, unconsciously listening to
tho gay music and wotohipg, aa tf in a
dream, tho graceful figures of tht*dan
cors, as they glided through the nVT**
of "Les Lanciers." I was thinking,
thinking intently, trying to persuade
myself that I could bo happy without
Gerald, bul in vain; never had ho appear- >
ed moro noblo and manly, nevor had I
loved him mom than nt tho motnont he
left me. If he bad remained, my better
angel might have prevailed in that ??weet
hour? But I thought of Col. Haughton'*
wealth and position, and oh ! the glam?
our it east around him. I had always
been ambitious-a leather might have
turned the scale-when I heard a voice,
and turning I found Col. H. at my side.
He bad sought me to elsi m roy hand for
the next dance ; but now that he bad
discovered my retreat, begged me to
stay and listen to him. There he told me
how he had loved me from the first, and
asked me to be his wife, and yielding to
my pridp.and silencing the whisperings
of my heart, I consented to wear his gol?
den chains. The breeio was still fresh
and sweet, the flowers as fragrant, and
the moonlight still "fell in silver lines."
But a blight seemed to have fallen over
it. Oh how I huted it all t what right
had everything to seem so happy and
beautiful around me, while within all
was bitterness and regret ? But I bad
begun the task aod must finish it, with
steady hand must heap the ashes of for?
getfulness upon tho glowing flame of a
first and only love.
Supper was announced, and taking the
Colonel's offered arm, I aroused myself,
and chatting lightly, passed on to the
supper room, trying to appear the gayest
of the gay, the smile and gay repartee
ever on my lip. Onoe I saw Gerald,
gravo, calm and pale, standing a little
apart from the others, and inwardly
sorrowing, yet outwardly one of the most
bright-h ear ted of that gay assemblage. I
turned, with words of badinage, to Col.
Haughton. After supper, longing to be
alone, that I might think over the
eventstof the evening, I left the revel
Icrs, and hastening to the library, threw
myself tn ono of the softly cushioned
chairs, with my faco buried in my hands,
there to meditate, and to feel that I bad
been hurried on to do that which would
make me miserable for life. Would that
I might have retraced my stcp>, but it
was too late-too late. I heard the door
open, bot, supposing it to bo one of tho
servants, did not raise my head, until a
low voice at my sido said, "Sybil, I await
your decision," and lookiog up, saw Ger?
ald. Feeling that I had gone too far to
recede, and fearing to trust my voice, I
silently drew from my bair the red rose,
glowing as if with the blood of the heart
sacrifice I had mad?, and extended it
towards him. Without a word, he tobk
the hand which held it, pressed one
kies upon it, and was gone, gone forever,
leaving me to tho grief which I had
brought upon myself.
The next morning, many Wondered at
Gerald's sudden departure, and, from hit
stolen glances at my pale oheeks, when
ever Gerald was mentioned, I thought
Col. Haughton surmised a portion ot th?
truth. After a few days, I returned tc
the city, accompanied by the Colonel
and then, thc next month passed in whai
seemed to rae a never ending, wearying
round of visits, and congratulations
which struck on my ear and heart like i
death knell. The Colonel hurried 01
our wedding, as pressiug business callee
him to Virginia. My trousseau was be
lng prepared, and all the arrangement:
for my wedding wore going on, while 1
was the envy of half the young ladies o
my acquaintance, all of whom admire*
the handsome Colonel, so wealthy, dis
tinguishod and handsome-and above all
so talented and devoted. But my hear
was far away, and after leaving the bm
tie and stir, I would retire to my ow
room, and thero lying on the lounge
tho hot tears would oourse down m;
checks, as if in pity they were strivin
to wash out from my heart the memor
of the loved and lost.
One day I lay there thinking hoi
bright and beautiful was all around mi
and contrasting the outside world wit
my own feelings. The sunlight lay i
?patines of bright gold" upon the flooi
the sweet south wind cropt in throug
the half opened shutters, passed noise
lessly through the laoe curtains, an
lifted tho damp hair from my heatc
brow, seemed sent to whisper to me <
one far away. I thought of Gorah
and how vividly did I recall him.
had his miniaturo, but had never dart
to trust myself to open it ; but now
thought I would take one last, lon
look, and never see it more. I aros
and unlocking tho casket which 001
tained that which should not have boc
but was so preoioun to mc, took ll
treasuro, and returning to the loung
resumed ruy former position.
What a tide of reooolleotionu rushi
over me as I gazed upon those fei
tures Thore was tho same smile, tl
dark waving bair, the almost femioii
sweetness of the mun in, softening a fat
which the haughty expression of tl
dark hazel eyes, and the broad bro
would have rendered too stern. Hi
long I lay there with riveted eyos, I o
scaroo toll, but bitterly did I thoo real)
the truth which the poet biogs, that
sorrow's orown of sorrow is remomberi
happier thinjfc" Rousing myself at la
I laid the portrait apon the table, and as
I did so, saw the morning paper which
I had thrown there, and picking it up
listlessly ran ray eyes down the columns
It was just alter one of our great battles,
and the paper was filled with accounts
of the wounded and the dead ; but as I
knew or thought I knew that his com?
pany was io another part of Virginia, I
had only a patriotic interest in the news
of the battle. But suddenly my eye waa
arrested and fixed, by this paragraph :
"We regrot to learn that Capt. Gerald
(?ray, of this city, was shot through the
head and killed instantly, while gal?
lantly
I saw no more for, with a moan, I
what do you think reader! I awoke, yes,
awoke, and found myself in the piasza
wh ere Gerald had loft me, and knew that
it was a dreadful dream. The gay
dancers were preparing to leave, the
bright lights were partially extinguish
ed, and my hair was damp with the
heavy night dew, while Gerald, by my
side, was speaking anxiously, "Sybil,
why are you here alone, in this chill
morning air? (for it wa? three o'clock,)
come into the parlor and let me hear
your decision." I did not rise to go,
for I heard Col. Haugh ton's voice in the
parlors but turning to Gerald, and laying
both hauch in his, said, Hake both buds,
Gerald, and since you oan have no rose
without a thorn, take with them this
thorn which has so often pierced your
heart." I-but why repeat to you,
dear reader, the old, old story, old yet
ever fresh and sweet, ofton repeatod,
yet never tiresome, when told by the
lips vre, love. Suffice it to say that Ger?
ald did not leave next day; and when
six months alter preparations were really
being made for my wedding, I was no
listless, unhappy, fiancer, but tho moat
quietly happy of all the gay girls who
had gathered (days before) to celtbrate
it. Not long after my wedding, there
was a double ono, for Cupid, having
found Col. Haughton, once vulnerable,
sent an arrow to his heart from the dark
eyes of the boautiful Maggie Arlington,
uiy cousin and bridesmaid, and on the
evening of their marriage, cousin Ethel
rewarded thc untiring devotion of Clar?
ance Everard, one of her numerous ad?
mirers. Col. Haughton and his lovelj
bride soon after their marriage, went ti
Virginia (where he has a magoificeni
estate on the James) to live. And now:
have I ever regrettod the dream and
its oonsequeuces ? Never since our mar
riage. I have told it to Gerald, ant
he replied,^laughingly, yet' earnestly
"I am glad I left you to sleep iu th?
piazza."
-Gratitudo is the music of the heart
when Its chords aro swept by the bree*
of kindness.
