lUttS. STOWIMtSKCOND IVA II HA 11 vii.
We roftrqt to bc compelled nt the
outset to slate our opinion that tho rep
ulai ?on which will su lier most hy this
new "rcvolalion" [Mrs. Stowe'? vindica?
tion "I her statement concerning Lord
jjyrou und Mrs. heigh] is that of Mr?.
Stowe herself. Not only hat? she no new
evidence ol an)' kind to oiler, but she
involves li erm* 11* in so strange a mesh of
contradict hms and inconsistencies that
at la*t she stands bet?r?? u< like a prose,
eui ur u ho feels himself bound to press
I li e charge even tiller he has discovered
thc innocence ui .he accused. She
seizes upon every straw that comes in
her way ?She puta her own interpreta?
tion upen passages in Lord Byron's wri?
tings lor the purpose of identifying the
poet with thc oreutious of his fancy.
She contradicts her former ''true story" j
nbc contradicts tho story which sho now
declares that Lady Byron told lier;
and lastly, she contradicts, in the last
patt o? her present volume, the accusa?
tions which she makes in thc first part.
We ure (ar Iron) entertaining uliy desire
to give pain to a lady from whom the
whole civilized world has received sub?
stantial benefits. But we aro compelled
to believe that Mrs. Stowe is as much
the victim of a morbid delusion as ever
Lady Byron herself was. and that on
this particular subject she has lost thc
power to discriminate between truth and
lie) ?nu.
Wo invite thc reader to form an inde?
pendent judgment upon Mrs. Stowe's
second story by closly analyzing it nud
cotnparaitig it with thc first. In her
first story she distinctly and repeatedly
assured us that Lady Byron knew of thc
Intimacy which existed between Lord
Byron and his sister from the (imo she
was married till the day when she could
support her ill-treat nient no longer, and
quitted her husband's roof. Everybody
who has vend thc Gr&t "story" will re?
member thc stress which Mrs. Stowe
lays upon this "knowledge ol thc guilty
Beeret." To quoto one passage only :
"Thc two years (tue) ill which ludy By
rot! was struggling to bring her husband
back to his better self were a series of
passionate convulsions." Tho astound*
iug fact has now to bo told that Mrs.
Stowe ignores the whole of the state
nient, and, without a word of explana?
tion, substitutes a totally different and
irreconcilable series of alleged facts.
lu an elaborate argument she shows that
Luly Byron did not discovor the "full
extent" of thc guilty connection until
a "later period." No new circumstan?
ces have como to Airs. Stowo's know I?
edge lo induce her to change her opi?
nion thus suddenly on a vital part of her
case. But letters of Lady Byron to
?Mrs. Leigh have been published by
third persons-letters written after the
s?parai ion-so full of affectionate and
trustful expressions towards tho "guil?
ty" sister that Mrs. Stowe cannot quite
close her mind to the evidence they pre?
sent. She feels herself obliged to ac?
count for those letters, and as she in?
stinctively discerns that i wile could
not write to her husband's mistress ns
Lady Hy ron wrote to Mrs. Leigh, she
at once presents us with a totully new
set of conjectures. Wo aro asked to
discard that picture presented in tho
first story of Lady Byron wrestling with
Lord Byron for hi J soul, and to believe
that nut until after the eepcration-how
lung Mrs. Stowe is cautious; enough not
to say-did tho wile learn of the hus?
band's guilt.
But now comes thc most startling and
inexplicable part of this second narra?
tive. In putting forward thc hypothe?
sis just mentioned, Mrs Stowe not only
contradicts herself, but she flatly alters
or repudiates tho disclosure made to hel?
by Lady Byron. In the extended rela
(ion which she now gives of her conver?
sation on thc day when tho secret was
confided to her, wo aro expressly told
that Lady Byron found out tho inti?
macy soon after her marriage. Ludy
Byron told Mrs. b'towc, as tho latter now
declares, that ono day sho saw Lord
Byron taking liberties with his sister,
that she (thc wife) remonstrated, and
that Lord Byron exulted in his crime,
saying that the depth and horror of it
"were thc very attractions-that he had
worn out all ordinary forms of sin, and
that ho longed for thc stimulus of a
new kind of vice." These were Lord
Byron's words to Lady Byron, ns repor?
ted by the hatter to Mrs. Stowe. But
now Mrs. Stowe sccs plainly that Lady j
Byron's letters to Mrs. Leigh alone dis?
prove her charge, and she seeks to ox
plain away (lie inconsistency by assign?
ing thc discovery of the guilty secret
to a vague and unknown period.
Nor is this all. Mrs. Stowe, having
first depicted Lord Byron as a monster
of depravity, now submits to tho world
R singular medical nrguincut to provo
that bc was not in ?tin riyht mind. Then
even supposing her chnrgo to bo true,
what becomes of tho criminal's moral
accountability? She says that thc
poet's excesses, combined with "immense
draughts on thc brain-power' of rapid
mil brilliant composition," probably
"ended in that abnormal state in which
craving,! for unnatural vico givo in?
dications of approaching brain disease."
In fact she constructs two or thrco to?
tally new theories to meet tho circum?
stances revealed to hor by Lady By?
ron's own letters-thoso lottors in
which, after tho separation, sho implores
Mrs. Leigh to bc with her brother as
much os she possiblo could, and nsoribes
tho separation itself to Lord Byron's
"aversion to tho married state" First
thon, wohavo Mrs. Stowe alleging ?hat
Lady Byron know of her husband's in
tcicourso with his sister directly after
tho marriage ; Mrs. Stowe assorts that
sho did not find it out till a lalor "pe"
riod," Thirdly, sho quotes Lady By?
ron's own words, showing that sho had
discovered tho crime at an early stngo
of her married lifo. Fourthly, Mrs.
Stowe trios to provo that Lord Byron
was insane. May wo not fuirly ask what
Term.3
it is that Mrs. Stowe really believe
about titi si affair in her own in i nd ?
Mrs. Stowo makes it au addition!
charge against Lord Byron that he wrot
tho verses "Faro thee well mid if io
ever" on March 17, 1810, "while neut
li?t inns for separation were pending, -
Mrs. Stowe's forgetfulness and confu
sion aro simply unacountablc. Lad
Byron quitted Lord Byron's house, "nov
er to return," on January 15th, 181(
and Dr. Lnshingtou's ' letter declurin
i hat tho wilo never could be reconcile
to her husband was duted January
81st
We have Raid that Mrs. Stowo has n
proof of her Brst story to offer. But i
this second story ?be supplies, unaware.
some confirmation of tho suppositiot
that Lady Byron was thc victim of <
hallucination wheo she confided her "sc
oret" to Mrs. Stowo. We ask the par
ticular attcnton of the reador to tin
point, because Mrs. Stowe, in tho wavmtl
of her advocacy, has so arranged he
materials as to mislead .thoso who cure
cssly follow ber siatcmet. She take;
great pains to show that Lady Byroi
was in her perfect miud, but when w
discover that it was not at this healthy
period the disolosuro was made. Wc
aro not' given tho exact date-Mrs
Stowe evades lief dates in a most unsut
isfactory manner-but sho is obliged tc
admit that wheo the great oorvcrsatior
took place Lady Byron was seriously
ill. When she was icett she spoke of hoi
dead bush..nd to Mrs. Stowo just as sin
had always written of him to Mrs
Leigh-that is to say, with sorrow ont
respect. Wo rognrd this as a most im?
portant piece of evidence, although Mrs
Stowe montions it in a cursory manner
It was not until Lady Byrou was "pros
trated" with illness that sho accused li ci
husband of incest. Bcforo that time
Mrs Stowo herself declares that no ont
would havo conjectured from Lady By?
ron's remarks concerning her husband
"that thcro were under all any deepei
recollections than tho circumstances ol
an ordinary separation might bring."
But at the timo thc "secret" was divulg?
ed all was different with Lady Byron
Mrs. Stowe says of her state at this pe?
riod : "Her hands woro like iee ; hoi
fuco was deadly pale, und she con ver-o
with a restraint and difficulty whiel
showed what an exertion it was for her
to keep up at all." (Bago '230.) Again
she says that she fouud ber "in oue of
those periods of utter physical exhaus?
tion to which she was subject, on nc
count of the constant pressure of care
beyond her strength." (Pago 2.0.)
Un thc very day of tho unfortunate con?
versation thcro were two other visitor;
with Lady Byron nt tho moment Mrs.
Stowe entered the room. When Lady
Byron got up to go out, says Mrs. Stowe,
they (thc otner guests) "lookod after bet
with a singular expression of respect ard
affection, and gave utterance to fears
lest "her unselfishness might bc leading
her to over exertion." When lady By?
ron made thc revelation "she became,"
says Mrs. Stowe, "so deadly pale that I
feared she would faint." As for thc
paper which Lady Byron afterwards loni
to her visitor, Mrs. Stowo seems to bc
unable to give us any account whatovci
of it. Lady Byron told Mrs. Stowe
that she thought of makiug her story
public some day, because Lord Byron
was looking oo from another world nt
thc mischief he had done, and he could
not "be at peace until this injustice'
was righted. ?Vow tako those facts in
connection with the letters of Lady By?
ron to Mrs. Leigh nod others, and which
becomes tho moro probably conjecture
thal Lord Byron and Mrs. Leigh wert
guilty, or that Lady Byron, towards thc
end of her life, was not yi full possession
of her faculties '(
We have passed by all minor point:
in Mrs. Stowe's second narrativo. Wt
shall not criticise thc manner in whiel;
she has performed her task. Her strange
rhapsodies, her spasmodic bursts o!
sentiment, hor disordered nrroy of sud
facts as she has to offer, wc will pul
wholly aside. But there is one particulai
in which her moral sense is strangely ni
fault, and wc must call her attention te
it ere we leave thc subject, ns wc trust
forever. Sho vindicates herself foi
publishing her unsupported and repul?
sivo "story" upon tho ground that she
wished to defend "a wifo anda mother.'
Is it possible, then, that she docs nol
perceive that in reality sho hus come
forward to defame u wife and n mother ?
Noono accused Ludy Byron of immorali?
ty. But Mrs. Stowe has charged Mrs.
Brigit with the' most shocking of nil
07 io*Jj and he thinks that it is enough
to h 'tatitiato her charge if she shows
that A '.Byron was a man of very bad
charact '-jShc has asked whether Lord
Byron wa. capable ol' committing this
clime, and, having satisfied herself thal
he was,she proclaims that the whole
ease is proved. But, by an incredible
perversity, she makes no account ol' the
fact that thcro must have benn (wo
parties to tho sin. If Lord Byron was
n profligate, docs that provo his hall
sister was as bad, or worso? Mrs. Stowe
has not yet said one word against Mrs.
Leigh. She moro ly assumes that if Lort!
Byron wished to commit tho specified
crime, Mrs. Leigh would hnvo readily
become his accomplice. Is a sister to
be condemned beXsauso her brother hap
pens to boa licentious scoundrel '( Can?
not Mrs. Stowo sec that sho is attacking
Mrs. Leigh moro than Lord Byron, mid
that sho is not defending Lady Byron nt
all? Surely '.irs. Leigh ought to bc
hold innocent until she is proved guilty;
and of proof, Mrs. Stowo has not a
partido to give tho world.
Since, indeed, it was impossible from
tho first that her charge eould he proved,
and since it was a charge fraught with
oruolty and wrong to tho momory of
Mrs. Leigh and all her survivors nnd
relatives, Mrs. Stowo never ought to
hnvo rondo it. Even if Ur. Lushington
would toll us what wcro tho oxaot cir
- cum&itvnccs disolosod to him by Lady
Byron, it would bo important cvidonco,
but not absolutely decisive on either.
?ido. For wo should still have Lady
Byron's letters to Lady Anno Bernard, '
written moro than a your after tho.
separation, distinctly acquitting her;
! husband of any graver faults than neg- j
ieet and cruelty. We should still have i
the fuot before us that Lord Wentworth, I
Lady Byron's nearest representative, dc? !
clares that a manuscript was found among [
that judy's pupers giving Oil account of
her marriage, und that it "does not con?
tain utiy accusation ol' -o gravo u nature '.
tts that which Mrs. Stowe assorts was
told her." Mrs. Stowo takes no notice
of this most weighty information. She
is aware that Lady Byron's letters deny
and disprove her own accusation-she
suppresses, a ma>s of unimpeachable
testimon'yin favor of Mrs. Leigh's in?
nocence, lier responsibility (or these
defects of judgment, to uso no harsher
language, is great. Wo deeply regret
that Mrs. Stowe has been willing to
have her name handed doun to posterity
us the authority for one of tho most
revolting and indecent slanders ever
concocted against cither tho living or
tho dead.

CIIIIJDIIISN'S nooks.
Rev. T. Do Witt Talmtigo has some
tell ing hints in Hearth and Mame on the
quality of children's books, which may
bo profitably considered wheu the next
lot is selected for thc Sabbath-school
library. It may bc thought the last par?
agraph is a little over muscular, but
thc advice is sound : .
On Sunday night your child docs not
want to go to bcd. lie orics when com"
pelted to go, and looks undor tho bed
for some of the religious hobgoblins that
como out of thcSundtiy-school library.
Bctigious books are just as bad as any
other books. A child is just tts afraid
of Floras, Pomonas, sylphs, oreads, and
furies, ns of gjsts. The poor little dar?
ling in thc blue sack goes home with a
book thinking she has heaven under her
arm, and before she gets through read?
ing the story of love and adventure
feels so strange that she thinks she
must bo getting lots of religion.
In the choice of our children's books
let us not mistake slops for simplicity,
nor insult our children's tastes by dis?
quisitions about "iootsytootsies," or keep
iuforming them ol tho historical fact
which they learned a great while ago,
that "Mary had a little Iamb," or as?
semble tho youngsters in coroner's jury
to clear up tho mystery na to "who
killed cock robin." If u child has no
common sense ut sevcu years of age it
never will have.
Have at least ono book in your library
in which all thc good children did uot
die. My carly impression from Sun?
day-school books was that religion was
very unhealthy. It seemed a terrible
distemper, that killed every boy and
girl that it touched. If I found myself
sumo day bettor than common, t correct
ed thc mistake for fear I should die ;
although.it was thc general opinion
that I was not in much danger from
ovcr-snnotity. But I do believe that
children may have religion and yet live
through it. A strong mustard plaster
and teaspoon full of ipcoac will do
marvels. Timothy lived to grow up,
and wc arc credibly informed that little
Samuel woke. Indeed, thc best boys I
over saw occasionally upset things nud
got boisterous and had thc fidgets. Thc
goodie-goodie kind of children make
namby-pamby mon. I should not bc
surprised to lind that n colt which does
not frisk becomes n horse that will not
draw. It is not religion that makes n
boy sit by the stove while his brothers
arc out snow-balling, but thc "dumps."
The boy who has no fire in his nature
may, after he has grown up, ha''0 ani?
mation enough to grc-ise a wagon-wheel
but he will nob own thc wagon nor
have money enough to buy the grease.
Thc best boy I ever knew, before ho
went to heaven, could striken ball till
it. soared out of bight, ?ind in thc race,
far as you eonldsec, you would find his
red tippet cumming out ahead. Look
out fur thc boy who never has the fin?
gers of n good laugh (ickle htm under
the diaphragm. Thc most solemn-look?
ing mule on our place had kicked to
pieces five dash boards.
There aro parents who notice that their
daughter is looking pale and sick, mid
therefore think she must bo destined
to marry a missionary and go lo Borneo,
although thc only rcccomcndation she
has for that position is that she will
never bo ?ny temptation to the enntti
bals, who, while very fond of cold mis?
sionary, aro avcrso to diseased meat;
or finding their son looking cadaverous,
thii.k ho is going to die or become a min?
ister, considering that there is great pow?
er of consecration in thu liver complaint,
and thinking him doubly .-et apart who,
.while Presbytery aro Inying their
hands on his head, has dyspepsia laying
its hand on his stomach.
Oh for a religious literature that
shall luke for tts model of excellence n
boy thai loves God, and can digest his
dinner in two bouts after he eats !
If tho church could trade off throe
thousand hogsheads of roligious cant for
thrco thousand hogsheads of fresh air
and stout health, wc should bo tho gain?
ers, but tho follow with whom wo trad?
ed would bo cheated mercilessly and
forever.
A LA MODE.-Hiram Oreen, tho hu
mourons contributor of tho Troy ?udf/t't,
thus takes off tho fashions :
"Whoops is discorded nnd out off with
a shillin, Uko tho prodioal sons who roll
'om in tho parks. It is a safo bot to
say that whoops is gono back to thoir
legitimate okupashun of ombrasin barrel

"In gentleman's shoocs gimlot holes
