line determined*fo watch until he ha'd unrav
elled the enigma whieh had so long puzzled
him. Amongst the windows opposite he had
remarked two. the blinds of whieh were always
down; these he observed particularly, imagin
ing that this must be the countess' apartment. !
The third dny one of those windows opened,
and the Hungarian came forward and leaned!
on the balustrade. Frederick now lifted up
the curtain of the window, behind which ho
had until then concealed himself; his eyes
were strained upon the open easement, fur he
imagined that at the extremity of the apart
ment he perceived the form of a woman, lie
' as nut mistaken, for a lew moments tiller she
advanced towards her husband, her eyes east
down?be 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 hei
st reich out both her hands, utter a piercing 1
try. and fall backwards.
Garnier remained a few moments motionless,
not daring to stir; but be soon heard the win
dow opposite close with violence, and when he '
again ventured to look, ihe Hungarian and the
stranger bad both disappeared.
The same evening his hostess informell bim
that some one had been making inquiries about
him. bis name, his country, bis habits, anil the
motive of his stay at. Vienna. Frederick had
no - diiliculty in guessing from whence these
questions proceeded; he had been recognised;
ho saw all tin; danger Of remaining in a coun
try without friends or protection, and in pos
session of it secret of which some people would
like t?? ensure tho safety at any price ; he con
sequently resolved to he on his guard, and act
with the greatest circumspection.
.Several days passed away, the 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, and the curtain was about to rise for
tho third, when Garnier felt a paper between
his lingers ; the hand which had held it was
immediately withdrawn, and before he had
time to turn round to look for the secret mes
senger, he heard the door cd'the next box close.
The note contained these words :
."Go to the Duchess Uoimberg's masked ball
on Thursday dressed in an Albanian cost nine,
and if one should ask you, 'What do you
want V answer, '1 do not know.' "
Lcblanc had been invited to this ball; Gar
nier therefore went dressed in the required cos
tume. His impatience had made him ant ich
pate tho customary hour, so that; when ho ar
rived there were but few persons present.
After having examined all the masks who
were there, Frederick took up his position near
the door, to ace tho others as they entered, hop
ing that a chauco would cause him to discover
the person he expected j but the crowd Boon
obliged him-to quitthis place; be was gradu
ally forced to retire to the " further cud of the
room, and there he determined to whit.
The night was already fur advanced; the
dancing had begun to flag, and tho guests to
turn their attention towards the supper, which
had been prepared in thcu-bunqueting-rooin.
Futig"?d rr.ith the heat and the glare of the
lights, Frederick allowed the joyous crowds ? ' 1
dancers to pass-on. Perceiving a door ajar,
ho pushed it open and passed into a small libra
ry, which was lighted by a single lamp.
lie stretched himself on a sofa, as if over
powered by lassitude, and had beguu to yawn
very comfortably, when he heard the tread of a
-light footstepi he turned round; a woman, in
a rich Spanish costume,-stood before hiin.
'?"What do you want 1" said she, in a low
l,I do not kow.M . .
She started and looked anxiously about the
room,, "Xot so lout! sir."' murmured she.
??We arc alone, madam."
She drew nearer. '-Why did you come tg
Vienna. '
??To lind you."
The young woman drew "back. "To find
me ??and why?"
"For the second time I v.ill answer you,
madam. I do not know. Your appearance has
? created such ail extraordinary sensation in my
existence, that on perceiving you again I was
seized with a sort of nervous curiosity to gefc
at the bbttom id' this a (lair, ami 1 resolved to
see you at uny price.*
"What" have. ? op.';> ask of im??'"
"Kveryth'f*>i. madam; for I \\iw*;. not been |
able to guess a single incident i?f the drama of
whieh you made me a witness?1 might almost
say an actor. Ah ! you have too elevated and ?
noble a character not to understand that my j
impatience to clear up the mystery which sur-;
sounds this adventure does not proceed from
idle curiosity, but from a romantic hove which
I had conceived of being useful to yon. 1

hazard, was. in fact, a concealed and well-ar- |
range\l plot to force me to accept of a favor; j
but this favor, I wish t > know why and mi ?
what conditions it was grunted, Was it the
rcocmpcu.se of my silence, or of some service
which I bad rendered you?"
'?Both, sir."
??Then I refuse it. madam ; positively and
absolutely refuse it." exclaimed Frederick;
warmly ; "1 neither sell my services nor my
diseret ion."
"For heaven's sake, sir. listen me-?-yon came
here, you say. to serve me; let it suJliec you to
know that all that has passed is irreparable.?
that my misery now weighs only upon myself,
that your presence may ruin but cannot profit
me in the least. 1 am a slave, chained in (lu
den of a wild beast, who in his rage Would kill
ine. 'I he secret you ask me for. sir. would. ;
were it known, cost me my life. <)'. I beseecli
you. leave Vienna?return into I'ranee?you
do not know the dangers to which you are ex
posed here?you have already excited the
count's jealousy?you are watched, besot with
spies. It required tho chance and tumult of
this ball to bring about an interview ; perhaps,
even now, is he searching for me."
Having pronounced these words, the young J
woman looked anxiously around her. Sudden
ly her eves remained fixed on something at the
further end of the library. She drew back
with a gesture of terror. I'rederiek. who had
eagerly watched all lier.movements, perceived
in u looking-glass the reflection of a head peep
ing through tin-dour, which was ajar. lie!
uttered an exclamation id' surprise, and ad
vanced tow.irt's the dour; but it suddenly
opened. Hilda man dressed in an Armenian cos
l.ttuue appeared on the threshold. -1 disturb
you." said he, ili a hollow voice.
The stranger drew back, trembling and dis
"What do you want, sir? how dare you list- j
en to us? aiked Frederick.
Without making any answer, the Armenian
endeavored to approach the young woman, but
Frederick placed himself on his passage; the
two men stood confronting each other ill an at
titude of provocation ami profound hatred.
All of a sudden the Armenian tore oil' his mask
and discovered to view the savage countenance
of the Hungarian nobleman.
"J)oyou recognise me now ?" asked he, with
an accent of ungovernable rage.
"1 do not possess the art of reading peo
ple's names on their faces," replied Frederick
"Perhaps your companion will be more j
clever than you," rejoined the Armenian, ad
"Back, sir." .
"Down with your masks !"
"Back, 1 tell you."
The Hungarian laid his hand on his poniard,
and Frederick on his yataghan; but, at the
same moment, the nuisie again began to play
tho .croj^hnd ng11"1 ?Hcd the ball-room, and a
tvoo'fi '>l Busks rushed into the library with
I'Riightcr. Frederick profited by tho

"IjMM you finished it ?" asked the count of
?Wnfeit arc your arms?"
Jl?ld..uoi understand you. sir."
Thk Hungarian stared at Frederick with a
sort tttsavaire astonishment. "Havcvou iiotre

"TiVIiic, sir."

"I d? not know."
"Come. come. sir. all prevarication is use

Alter this discourse the count sal down, as
if to show thereby that bis 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 hud found at
l>a-l" ; he turned it and rccoguised the portrait
of the countess. *
He sprang from his chair, uttered a cry of
rage, and quashing his teeth, exclaimed, "I will
this instant go and fetch my arms; in an hour
I shall return, and if you still refuse to fight
sue. 1 will kill you."
I'rederiek remained buried in deep reflection,
it was now that be bitterly repented the conse
quences of his imprudent curiosity.' The scene
which had taken place at the Ibichess lleim
hurg's, and the Hungarian's violent jealousy,
had made him iv.m .ve tu be prudent ; but it
was now too late; the count's provocation had
wound up the afiair in the most gloomy man
ner possible. It was certainly very easy for
him to correct the error which had brought
about tin' quarrel, but he would then be obliged
to teil all that he knew. t<i reveal a secrect on
which the honor, the life of a woman depend
ed ; and this he considered he Could not du

ami rose up. "lloford we go out, sir." *:> u| he,
"I wish l>> say one word; it shall he ? nc last:

had forgotten it."
? Liar, liar !?and t he le ;tcr ?"
"The letter!?she w ho wrote it has alone the
power ami the rite to c>*. phi in it. sir."
"And she will." said a calm, solemn voice.
Frederick and the Hungarian turned round
simultaneously. The countess was standing in
the door-way.
"Margaret '." exclaimed the count, "what do
you want here ?"
"To hinder you from committing a crime.
"Begone, begone, I say."
"Not without you, count."
"Ah ! are you afraid of your lover?"
Sh*i east upon the Hungarian a long look of
disgust, and contempt. "My lover I" said she,
,with a Inhering voice, "you know very well
that he is not here."
"But this letter?this letter, madam-"
"Have yon Forgotten a young man to whom 1
was affianced, and whom, coward-like, you threw
like a vile malefactor into prison?"
"Frantz has nothing to do with this affair
"You arc mistaken, sir; for I loved him ar
dently, fervently, before I was compelled to be
come your wife, and I loved him still more af
terwards. You had him condemned for a sup
posed^crimc before our voyage to France, yet
ho'contrived to join ine in Faris."
"He!?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 youngvoman with a
bitter smile; "you must first here mo out.
Kraut/, bad been in Faris about two months,
when you 'announced your return. He then
conjured me to flee with him ; but I remem
bered my child?I was, besides, sure that we
should not be able to eseape your pursuit, that
Frantz would pay the penalty of his life?I
wished to save bun from inevitable destruction
?wretched woman ! I refused ! 1 then re
ceived from Frantz a letter which contained
these wolds" :
"This evening I shall be under your windows,
to see you or to die."
"I was in the country?I arrived in Faris
distracted?1 flew to the Luxembourg?the
gates were closed. 1 ran to this gentleman,
who occupied an apartment under ours; he
opened for mo a private dour which led into
the gardens, and when 1 arrived?Frantz was
dead !"
The countess buried her face in her hands,
and sobbed aloud."
"Von will now easily understand." rejoined
she. after a long silence, "why 1 was so dis
turbed when 1 again perceived that gentleman?
why I was so anxious to meet him?why I
wrote to him to leave Vienna."
._Thojcnun^had_sat and listened to all the de
: tails of this adventure "with a" most terrible
? calm, his eyes fixed, and his lips compressed.
He at last rose, and advanced towards Gamier,
who bad remained wonder-struck and mute
with astonishment?"Von will ijuit Vienna to
j morrow." said he imperatively.
The you'ig "?au started, and was about to
' answer, but the countess looked at him. "It

Sinke Corn.
Will the Eolith ever learn anything? A
I'rcnch c* nie upon the restoration of the
liourhon remarked : " They have nothing."
Shall tjq 00 subject to the same sarcasm??
*A ha can we do without corn?
I .1 the old times, just before,th? errrrrr"crash
of '.ill-'."i7. when overyttoily was run mad Oil the
j vuKject of cotton, ju.-t as we are now. a team
?a poor lean muh' team?was staggering up
I Main street under a heavy load.. The owner
; in a sort of apologetic way. remarked to a knot
i of friends, "Upon my word. I wish I did know
what would fatten my mules. I've tried imx
r> unit <i and assufVcditii, and every sort ofthing
and it don't seem to do a particle of good."
?? Did you ever try coin?" quietly asked the
Diogenes of the party. ?? If not, perhaps you
had better try it."
Wc would warn the people to make corn.
Lessees don't seem to care about it ; they come
j to Mick out the substance and then like wild
geese emigrate North with their craws full.
See to it, you lessors ; make it a sine (juti >n>n
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
old times? the man of corn.
We are astonished to hear sensible men ad
vising people to make cotton to buy corn with.
F?vcn the old Indians have got drunk. We
know sonic large plantations that hav'nt got
enough shucksto make horse collars. Ofcourso
tho owners of such places "ain't worth shucks."
The startling announcement was made in
town, yesterday, that there 'was'nt a sack of
corn in town. Are we to have a famine ? It
seems so. If we bow down to col ton. and wor
ship it and neglect corn, we arc boiim.l to end
in famiue. Would that some JutephF could "
give us a lecture on the subject! He is .th.;
only statesman of whom we have ever heuid wlu
got corned iu the right way. Look jut your
situation in military parlance, iu^'a "cnl a\',
mc" made of gunny sacks. Ypu'yo got t >
borrow the money to buy the com... You've
got to feed mules to haul the com. You've got .
to pay the driver to drive the. wVgon to haul
the corn. You have to grease the wagon, etc.:
and you can run on in the style of " the cow
with the crumply horn," and pile up (he distis
tcrs that spriug from an cmpt^jcorii.crjb.
Don't be satisfied with ordinary crops, 'be- :
cause we'll have to begin to suck roasting cart;
before the moustache is off them. *l
Let all the editors in our land raise: the corn
song, and let the people join the chorus, i; raihj
corn !"
Let us do it qtiiok, before Uncle Sam has :?
chance to ffix us. It is the only thmgthut is'u:
stamped; that's one consolation.
It's time for us to speak out^ur.d warn the
people to plant corn! May God bless us next
season with a cornicopia of corn. ? ^
