A House in tho Buo tVEnfeiy -
[concluded.] r :>.-? ..
Tlumoxt day the artist took up his abode in
the*Lcopwldstadt, Fluids.windows bo. oonvj

line deterinincd'Vo watch until he ha'd "unrav
elled the enigma which hud so long puzzled
him. Amongst tho windows opposite he had
remarked two, the blinds of which were always
down; these he observed particularly, imagin
ing that this must be the countess* apartment.
The third day one of these windows opened,
and the Hungarian came forward and leaned
on the balustrade. Frederick now lifted up
the curtain of the window, behind which he
had until then concealed himself; his eyes
were strained upon the open casement, for he
imagined that at the extremity of the apart
ment he perceived the form of a woman, lie
was not mistaken, for a few m'omcnts after she
advanced towards her husband, her c}-es cast
down?he seemed to speak to her, for sudden
ly she looked up. and the first object she per
ceived was Gamier; the young man made an
effort to retire, but it was too late; he saw her
Stretch out both her hands, utter a piercing
cry, and fall backwards.
Garnier remained a few moments motionless,
not daring to stir; but he soon heard the win
dow opposite close with violence, and when he
again ventured to look, the Hungarian and the
stranger had both disappeared.
The mime evening his hostess informed him
that sonic one had been making inquiries about
him, his name, his country, his habits, and the
motive of his stay at Vienna. Frederick had
no ? difiicultyin guessing from whence these
questions proceeded; he had been recognised;
he saw all the danger of remaining in a coun
try without friends or protection, and in pos
session of n secret of which some people would
like to ensure tho safety at any price ; he con
sequently resolved to be on his guard, and act
with the greatest circumspection.
Several days passed away, tho windows of
the hotel opposite remained hermetically closed
and Gamier began to fear that the unknown
was gone.
One "evening he went to the opera with the
doctor; the two first acts had already been
played, mid the curtain was about to rise for
tho third, when Garnier felt u paper between
his fingers; tho hand which had held it was
immediately withdrawn, and before he bad
time to turn round to look for the secret mes
senger, he heard the door of the next box close.
The noto contained thoso words :
."Go to the Duchess lxoimbcrg's masked ball
on Thursday drossed in an Albanian costume,
und if one should ask you, 'What do you
want V answer, 'I do not know,' "
Lcblanc had boon iuvitctl to this bajl; Gar
nier therefore went dressed in the required cos
tume. His impatience had made him antiei*
pate tho customary hour, so that when ho ar
rived there were but few persons present.
After having ex'amiued all the masks who
wore there, Frederick took up his position near
the door, to see tho.others as they entered, hop
iug that a chance would cause him to dtscovor
the person he expected; but the crowd toon
obliged hini'to quit, this pluco? ho was gradu
ally forced to retiro to the 'further 6nd of. tho
room,'and -there,-he doterinineo! to vfttit..
T^hovnight was ' already fur advanced ; the
dancing had' begurt to flag, and the 'guests to
turn their attention towards the supper, which
had been prepared iu the^?nquoting-rooui.

;iights, Fredcrick^llqwcd the joyous crowds <'"

ho pushed it open and passed into a smali libra

lie stretched himself on a sola, as if o\er
.powered by lassitude, and had begun to yawn
very comfortably, when ho Jieard tho tread of a
*light foofstop; he turned round j a woman, in
a rich Spanish costume^teod before him.

hazard was, in fact,- a concealed and well-ar
rangeM plot to force me to accept of a favor;
but this favor, I wish to know why and on
what conditions it v. as granted, Was it the
recompense of my silence, or'of some service
which I had rendered you''"
'?Roth, sir."
"Then I refuse it. madam; positively and j
absolutely refuse it." exclaimed Frederick,
warmly ; "I neither sell my services nor my
discretion."
"For heaven's sake, sir, listen me?you came
here, you.sa}', to serve me; let it suffice you to
know that all that has passed is irreparable.?
that my misery now weighs only upon myself j
that your presence may ruin but cannot profit
me in the least. I am a slave, chained iu the
den of a wild beast, who iu bis rage would kill
me. The secret you ask me for, sir. would,
were it known, cost me my life. ?! 1 beseech
you. leave Vienna?return into France?you
do not know the dangers to which you are ex
posed here?you have already excited the
i ?unt'.s jealousy?you are watched, beset with
spies. It required the chance and tumult of
this ball to bring about an interview ; perhaps,
even now, is be searching for me."
Having pronounced these words, the young
woman looked anxiously around her. Sudden
ly her eye* remained fixed on something at the
further end of (he library. She drew buck
with a gesture of terror. Frederick, who had
.eagcrjy watched all her movements, perceived
iii u looking-glass the reflection of a bead peep
ing through the door, which was ajar. He
uttered an exclamation of surprise, and ad
vanced towards the door; hut it suddenly
opened, ami a man dressed in tin Armenian cos
tume appeared on the threshold. '"1 disturb
you," said he, in a hollow voice.
The stranger drew back, trembling and dis
tracted.
"What do you want, sir? how daru yon list
en to us? aiked Frederick.
Without making any answer, the Armenian
endeavored to approach the young woniaii, but
Frederick placed himself on his passage; the
two men stood confronting each other iu an at
titude of provocation and profound hatred.
All of a sudden the Armenian tore oil" his mask
and discovered to view the savage countenance
of the Hungarian nobleman.
"J)o you recognise me now ?" asked he, with
an accent of ungovernable rugo.
"I do not possess mC art of rending peo
ple's ttauics on their fa " replied Frederick
coolly.
"Perhaps your companion will be more
clovor thau you," rejoined tho Armenian, ad
vancing.
"Hack, sir." .
"Down with your masks 1"
"Hack, I tell you." ?
Tho Hungarian laid his hand on his poniard,
and Frederick on his yataghan; but, at the
fiamc Tnomont. the music again began to play
thQ>o>'?^J\od again filled the ball-room, and a
troop 'u<Jra?ks rushed into the library with
8houfA,^'Hr^h*tqlr.'4 Frederick profited by the
turanjfifticb this irruption occasioned to cffcet
a rct^?Sf<>r tho countess, and whou he returned
to ficekJP> Armenian he was gone.

After this discourse the count sat' down, as I
if to show thereby that his resolution was im
movably taken. On examining the objects
which were scattered about on the marble slab
of the chimney-piece, be unwittingly took up
the medallion which Henry bad found at
Uasle ; he turned it and recognised the port vu it
I of the countess. *
He sprang from his Chair, uttered a cry of
I rage, and gnashing his teeth, exclaimed. "I will ;
! this instant go and fetch my arms; in an hour
j 1 shall return, and if you still refuse to fight
me, 1 will kill yon."
I Frederick remained buried in deep reflection.
; It was now that he bitterly repented the eon.-e

i which had taken place at the Ouchess Kcim
i ^ ....
burg's, and the Hungarian s violent jealousy.
; had made him resolve to be prudent ; but it
: was now too late; the count's provocation had
, wound up the all'air iu the most gloomy innn
* ner possible. It was certainly very easy for
him to correct the error which had brought
about the quarrel, but he would then be obliged
to tell all that he knew, to reveal a sccrcct on
which tlie honor, the life of a woman depcud
cd; and this he considered he could not do
j without the basest cowardice, lie consequent
ly resolved to abide by his destiny, whatever it
? might he. To this effect he wrote a letter to
j Lehlane. relating to him all that had passed.
I and giving him his hist instructions iu ease he
j should succumb. lie-folded it up. and was
I about to write the direction, when the count
! again appeared, holding ill his hand two duel
ling-pistols.
?i shall be at your service in one moment,"
said Frederick.
'flie count laid down bis nn...-r o? the chilli .
! ney-jiiecc.
j (iamicr sealed his letter, wrote the direction,
i and rose up. "Molbfo we go out, sir," sv'ul he,
??I wish to say one word; it shall be-t'nc last:
1 declare, on my honor, that 1 never loved the
countess, that I have only seen her twice; that
T do not even know her name; that this por
trait, which you suppose to be n token of love,
was found by me at an inn at Phasic, where she
i had forgotten it."
? Liar, liar !?and the letter?"
'The letter!?she who wrote it has alone the
power and the cite to 07.plain it. sir."
?? And she will," said a calm, solemn voice.
Frederick and the Hungarian turned round
simultaneously. The countess was standing iu
the door-way.
"Margaret!" exclaimed the count, "what do
you want hove, ?"
"To hinder you from committing a crime.
"Hegone, begone, I say."
"Not without you, count."
"Ah ! aro you afraid of your lover ?*'
SW cast upon tho Hungarian a long look of
disgust and contempt. "My lover !" said sho,
,with a faltering voice, "you know very well
that he is uot here." .
"13utthis letter?this letter, madam-"
"Have you forgotten a young mi>n to whom I
was affianced, and whom, coward-like, you threw
like a vile malefactor into prison?"
"Frautz has nothing to do with this affair
madam."
"Youare mistaken, sir; for I loved hiin ar
dently, fervently, 'boforc I was compelled to he
come your wife, and I loved him still more af
terwards. You had him condemned for a sup
poserjjycrime before our voyage to France, yet .
hcfo?ntrivcd to join mo in Paris."
"Ho!?it's impossible."
"You were absent, sir, engaged in political
intrigues in London?I could receive him with
out fear."
? ?* ?
The, count stretched out his hand towards
his pistols.
"Not yet, sir," said the young woman with a
bitter smile; "you must first here mo out.
Frautz had been in Paris about two months,
when you -announced your return. Ho then'
conjured me to (lee with him; but I? remem
bered my child?I was, besides, sure that we
should not be able to escape your pursuit, that
Frautz would pay the penalty of his life?I
wished to save.him from inevitable destruction^
?wretched woman! I refused! I then rc
ceived from Frantz a letter which contained
these words" :
"This oveiiiiisr r sh? under your*windows,
to sec you or to die."
"I was in the country?I arrived in Paris
distracted?I flew to the Luxembourg?the
gates were closed. I. ran to this gentleman,
who occupied an apartment under ours; he
opened for me a private door which led into
the gardens, and when I arrived?Frantz was
dead!"
The countess buried her face in her hands,
and sobbed aloud."
?
"You will now easily understand," rejoined
she. alter a long silence, "why I was so dis
turbed when I again perceived that gentleman?
why I was so anxious to meet him?why 1
wrote to lnm<to leave Vienna.''4 , ". '
_Tlip_Q<mnyhjtd^sat and ristencd to alltho.de-.

calm, bis eyes fixed, and his lips compressed.
He at last rose, and advanced towards Gamier,
who had remained wonder-struck and mute
with astonishment?"You will quit Vienna to
! morrow," said he imperatively.
j The young man started, and was about to
I answer, but the countess looked at him. "It
j shall be so," said be coldly.
The count then seized bis wife's arm, who
shuddered beneath his grasp, aud they .both
i disappeared. ?
A month alter. Frederick met in Paris, I e
j blaue, who had just arrived from Vienna. rj"hej
j two friends had a long conversation together.
: Now I think of it." said Henry, "I lUaye
i learned by heart the name of the 11 uu g4rian's"
j wife?she is the Countess Margaret -jf Cles
wholtezser."
??And how came you to know it'.'*
"I saw it on the funeral iuvitr ?ons."
"What !" exclaimed Fredcr:.0>k, shuddering,
??is the countess dead ?"
? Yes, she died the day nilcr your departure

Kake Corn.
Will the South ever learn anything? A
I French nie upon the restoration of the

Shallr.Vo.be subject to the same sarcasm??

I 1 .1 the old times, just hofoyii^he-frTTTor^
'; of ".5(>-'U7. when. ovetytSnTiy was run mad on the
j. xuhjcPt oTcotton, just as. wo are now, a team
?a poor lean mule team?was staggering up
Main street under a heavy load.. The owner
in a sort of apologetic way, remarked (o a knot
of friends. "Upon my word, I wish I did know
what would fatten my mules. I've tried mix
vomictt and nssafocdita, and every sort of thing
and it don't seem to do a particle of good."
?? Did you ever try com?" quietly asked the
Diogenes of the party. "If not, perhaps you
had better try it."
"Wo would warn the people to make corn.
Lcssoes don't seem to care about it; they come
to suck old the substance and then like wild
geese emigrate North with their craws lull.
See to it, you lessors ; make it a tine qua nan
that your lessees shall raise corn. Your coun
try demands it. A full corn crib is better than
a full crib of any other kind. Chickens, mules,
darkies and every living thing rejoices in it.
Who have been the most.successful planters in

Sheep Vs. Otker Stock. ',;.'?'/'
The following briefly enumerates some o'.' O
advantages of keeping sheep. /
They make tho quickest return for f.h . in
vestment in them, being ready to eat & \lnee.
or*four months old. and yielding fle\y/ j at ow~-.
year old, and perhaps a land) also. -7\
Their subsistence is cheaper 4'.hsxu that o"
any other domestic animals?gV*.,sV*and stock

? They supply the family ?A- all seasons, with
the most "delicious meat of trlC most ed*rv?menL

- They prcsout valuable; products in two forms..!
their wuol and their .fh'jsh both, of which are.
adapted.to home c^Aisumptum, and for sun .
and both of which't,^re.Ad.vn(ed to eUhcv doiiies

The transportation of them to market tdiviS
is cheaper.tha^i of any other live stock (m*|
blooded) of 4;hc same value, and the same i ?
true also e 7 their wool compared with other and
similar a gricultur.il products.
Woe ( inay ho more easily and safely kept in
cxper -tatvon of a better market, than any other
and sirailar product, as it is. less liable to^OrC^
ir.seeis. rats or rotting.
An investment in them is self-cnlurgoing,
lud rapidhy so, by their annual inerense.
their wool pays much in tho way of interest at
